Gov. Cuomo and AG Underwood allowing known sexual offenders in with the developmentally disabled

The most dangerous people and criminals are those that protect and shield sexual predators and rapists allowing them to continue to rape and destroy more innocent victims’ lives – Governor Andrew Cuomo is the worst of the worst and extremely dangerous.

Both NY Governor Andrew Cuomo and NY Attorney General Barbara Underwood are knowingly endangering the welfare of incompetent individuals

It is illegal and nothing could be more negligent than to put a known sexual predator and sex offender that is likely to re-offend in with people with developmental disabilities who are like children.”

— Michael Carey – Civil Rights & Disability Rights Advocate

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, August 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Jonathan Carey Foundation continues to shout out these civil rights and human rights atrocities from the rooftops, but Cuomo and Underwood continue to commit state and federal crimes that endanger our most vulnerable.

“As the founder of the Jonathan Carey Foundation and a well known and respected Civil Rights and Disability Rights Advocate many people reach out to me for help because of the horrific crimes committed against their children within New York State’s extremely dangerous and deadly mental health care system.” – Michael Carey

Sharon Ashe, the mother of Scott Ashe notified me that the State of New York was and still is intending to put a level 2 Sex Offender in with her developmentally disabled son Scott who is approximately developmentally a 7-8 year old. Rumors were brought to my attention before that New York State was having New York State employed doctors give mild disability diagnoses to sex offenders coming out of prison so they could be placed in group homes. It is illegal and nothing could be more negligent than to put a known sexual predator and sex offender that is likely to re-offend in with people with developmental disabilities who are like children. Well this is what Governor Cuomo and Attorney General Underwood are allowing as they claim to be champions for protections of the vulnerable. Nothing could be further from the truth, numerous actions and blatant in-actions prove that both Gov. Cuomo and AG Underwood are directly involved in some of the most egregious and dangerous civil rights and human rights atrocities in the history of New York State.

You cannot make this up, who in the right mind would allow such atrocities? It is important to bring to light the magnitude of sex crimes being covered-up by Governor Andrew Cuomo’s fraudulent Justice Center; they are in the thousands annually. Almost all sex crimes against a disabled person disappears internally and are kept from local police, kept from being criminally investigated and kept from county elected prosecutors. This is wide-scale obstruction of justice that is ordered by Governor Cuomo and is currently being protected by Attorney General Underwood.

Both Cuomo and Underwood know that if Scott or any other person with a disability is sexually assaulted or raped they have everything in place to cover-up these sex crimes – Governor Cuomo’s bogus Justice Center. This State agency operating under its new name was relocated after it was basically caught with their pants down for massive cover-ups. The New York Times “Abused & Used” award winning investigative reporting series exposed the horrific care and services and the cover-ups occurring throughout the State of New York.

https://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/13/nyregion/13homes.html

You would have thought any Governor would finally do the right things necessary to stop and prevent the rampant sexual assaults, physical assaults and deaths of the disabled following an extremely powerful investigative reporting series which was a runner up for a Pulitzer Prize. But no, Cuomo instead dug in his heals and worked with everyone providing grossly negligent care and services to concoct a scheme to be able to cover-up almost all the sexual assaults and deaths. Don’t just believe me; check this Editorial piece done by the New York Times Editorial Board over five years ago.

https://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/10/opinion/protecting-the-most-vulnerable.html

Both the 911 Civil Rights Bill and Surveillance Camera bill that Michael Carey drafted and obtained massive support on have been blocked by Governor Cuomo. Cuomo has ignored the safety and equal rights of people with disabilities and countless lives have been severely damaged as a direct result of sexual assault and rape, this is the simple fact.

The cover-ups are purposeful and ordered by Cuomo and other top State officials to conceal the shame of these sexual assault atrocities happening with his agencies from the public, but also to protect the State of New York from multi-million dollar lawsuits. This news story regarding a State employee/caregiver who is a pedophile will disgust you. Stephen DeProspero called Cuomo’s system “a predators dream”. DeProsero was caught by the feds in a porn sting or he would still be sexually assaulting disabled children in a State run group home today. "The lack of supervision there made it easy to do what I did," DeProspero said in a handwritten affidavit obtained by The Associated Press. "I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream." It is Governor Andrew Cuomo, Attorney General Barbara Underwood and some corrupt DA’s as well that have protected sexual predators like DeProspero and Weinstein and God only knows how many others.

Federal criminal and civil rights investigations have been requested by Michael Carey. It is time for the top officials involved in these criminal cover-ups and civil rights atrocities such as Governor Cuomo and Attorney General Underwood to be indicted and held fully accountable for their crimes against the disabled and humanity.

Cuomo & Underwood Obstructing Justice & Protecting Sexual Predators

The most dangerous people and criminals are those that protect and shield sexual predators and rapists allowing them to continue to rape and destroy more innocent victims’ lives – Governor Andrew Cuomo is the worst of the worst and extremely dangerous.

NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Attorney General Barbara Underwood are ensuring that most sexual assaults and rapes of the disabled disappear

Both Cuomo and Underwood are denying people with disabilities in most cases their NYS and US Constitutional rights to ‘equal protection of laws’ when they are victims of crimes.”

— Michael Carey – Civil Rights & Disability Rights Advocate

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, August 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Jonathan Carey Foundation has done extensive research and has found that both Governor Andrew Cuomo and Attorney General Barbara Underwood are blatantly ignoring the safety and civil rights of upwards of 1,000,000 New Yorkers with disabilities. This specific group of people that are among our most vulnerable are without question and undeniably treated as lower class residents of New York State. The unequal treatment and discrimination in civil rights is off the charts. Both Cuomo and Underwood refuse to ensure children and adults within the State’s mental health care system which includes all the private subcontracted facilities and group homes have equal access to 911 first responder medical and police services. Both Cuomo and Underwood are denying people with disabilities in most cases their NYS and US Constitutional rights to ‘equal protection of laws’ when they are victims of crimes. It is as if we were back 60 years or more in the civil rights movement, but the level of disdain and discrimination in civil rights that still exists today surrounds people with developmental, physical and mental disabilities, instead of African Americans.

All attempts to stop the civil rights and human rights atrocities by Civil Rights and Disability Rights Advocate Michael Carey and the Jonathan Carey Foundation which he founded have been ignored by both Cuomo and Underwood. The discrimination permeates the New York State’s mental health care system which remains extremely dangerous and rampant with sexual assault and rape crimes.

This press release is focusing on the fact that almost all reported sexual assaults by mandated reporters within these facilities and group homes are purposefully kept from local police and criminal investigations. Governor Andrew Cuomo has ordered these illegal activities which are without question wide-scale obstruction of justice and a criminal conspiracy, both state and federal crimes, to protect sexual predators, pedophiles and rapists within his agencies. Attorney General Barbara Underwood is fully aware of the State and federal crimes being committed but is doing nothing to stop them or hold those involved in the cover-ups accountable. AG Underwood is protecting Gov. Cuomo as this despicable corruption continues and countless lives are severely damaged.

Attorney General Underwood in a video she released on Twitter portrays herself as a champion fighting to protect the vulnerable, but she has done nothing to stop the civil rights atrocities occurring, nothing to stop the cover-ups of massive numbers of sexual assaults against primarily women and children with disabilities, nothing to ensure immediate 911 emergency services for people with disabilities, nothing to stop the protection of sexual predators of the disabled, nothing to stop sexual offenders from being placed with the disabled, nothing to prosecute the sexual predators or those covering-up their crimes, nothing to stop Governor Cuomo’s fraudulent Justice Center from concealing most of these sexual assault crimes from local police and county elected District Attorney’s etc., etc.

The four main motives that drive this corruption all surround massive amounts of money. Here are these motives;

• The protection of the massive Medicaid Fraud Ponzi Scheme
• The protection of hundreds if not into the thousands of multi-million dollar lawsuits
• The protection from class action lawsuits
• The protection of paying out crime victims funds

Governor Cuomo has met with Michael Carey in 2012 and has received hundreds of letters or emails from him since and Carey has spoken with Attorney General Underwood at the Capital and she has received nine certified or priority letters within the last three and a half months. The most egregious of state and federal crimes, civil rights and human rights atrocities continue to date in epic proportion. Countless sexual predators, pedophiles and rapists run wild in a corrupt mental health care system likened to an animal house.

According to official New York State documents, approximately 1300 sexual assaults within one of six of Cuomo’s agencies are reported annually and according to a well known study, see link below, only 3% of these sexual assaults and rapes will ever be reported. When doing the simple math, statistically the real numbers are well over 40,000 annually within one of Cuomo’s agencies.

http://www.mass.gov/dppc/abuse-recognize/prevalence-of-violence.html

Almost all of these horrific sex crimes committed against our most vulnerable within Cuomo’s mental health agencies are being covered-up, per the directive of Governor Andrew Cuomo. Attorney General Barbara Underwood is protecting Cuomo, countless sexual predators and what is believed to be the largest Medicaid Fraud Ponzi Scheme in the history of New York State. If you thought Harvey Weinstein, Larry Nassar, the Catholic church pedophile priests or Stephen DeProspero in this news link were really bad, think again, the far worse criminals are those in authority that protect these individuals and allow them to continue to rape and destroy many other lives.

Priceline Appears to Have Resolved Credit Czar’s Public Pricing Concern and Now Displays Mandatory Fee with Total Price

Priceline reservation with 'Facilities' fee now disclosed to pleasure and relief of Credit Czar and consumers everywhere

Priceline reservation with ‘Facilities’ fee now disclosed to pleasure and relief of Credit Czar and consumers everywhere

Prior Priceline hotel receipt at time of booking — ‘Facilities’ fee concealed

Prior undisclosed 'Facilities' fee added at departure - federal UDAAP

Prior undisclosed ‘Facilities’ fee added at departure – federal UDAAP

Prior booking failed to disclose mandatory fee; agent read the fine print to justify. Howe filed a complaint with FTC and was refunded. Did Priceline remedy?

An injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”

— Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

CAPITOL HILL , WASHINGTON, D.C., UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, August 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — SubscriberWise, the nation’s largest issuing CRA for the communications industry and the leading protector of children victimized by identity fraud, announced today the apparent — and highly satisfactory — resolution of a predatory scheme that resulted in unfair and deceptive pricing that may have profoundly harmed consumers through ‘fine print’ terms that concealed the ‘total price’ until check-out.

“What a difference a few weeks makes,” stated David Howe, SubscriberWise founder, USA Credit Czar, and America’s identity guardian for babies for girls and for boys. “Yesterday, Credit Czar arrived in Washington, D.C. to advocate for innocent babies and children who are exploited hundreds of times each day by identity theft because Congress has failed to implement the ‘SubscriberWise Child Identity Protection Act’ as a desperately needed common-sense child safety initiative.

The urgent child-protection effort was proposed by the self-affirmed USA Credit Czar almost 4 years ago to the day, September 11, 2014, and focuses on technology and education – not punishment and retribution so venerated by the current and prior administrations (https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20140911006497/en/SubscriberWise-Proposes-Child-Identity-Theft-Protection-Legislation ).

“Upon arrival, and as usual for Credit Czar, I booked a hotel on the fly for the expected one-night stay in DC,” continued Howe. “For many years now – 15 years to be exact – I’ve had an account with Priceline (https://www.priceline.com) where I maintain a profile including stored credit cards for fast and efficient booking. I also use the organization’s ‘app’ because I’m often traveling by plane, train, and ride-share — while trying desperately to avoid the unregulated car rental industry — and then on foot when I arrive in the destination city. And that’s another way of saying that yesterday I was searching for a hotel very near the train terminal since I was walking with a roller bag in toe and a back pack on my shoulders with laptop and more.

“So, as is customary for my incredibly hectic and demanding travel schedule, I followed my typical protocol and located a hotel within a half-mile of Union Station,” confirmed Howe. “I obtained a Priceline deal that was offered during the initial search which looked extremely competitive for the Hill – but I knew from prior lobbying experience that what I saw wasn’t what I’d get. In other words, I knew there’d be a remarkably misleading price since hotels have begun – for years now, frankly — deceiving consumers with ‘resort’, ‘facilities’, and other clever names to 'pick the pockets' of unsuspecting consumers — far higher than the displayed price they expected to pay without the deception.

“And why wouldn’t these hotels dramatically increase the true cost of an overnight stay,” Howe added. “Lawmakers have enabled the legal pick-pocketing through unconscionable adhesion contracts while failing to enforce 'UDAAPs' (https://www.fdic.gov/regulations/compliance/manual/7/vii-1.1.pdf). Moreover, since there’s no local accountability with organizations that engage in these predatory pricing tactics, consumer complaints are having less impact and the cost-benefit from the few consumers who do complain simply doesn’t override the greed coefficient that makes it so lucrative to the organization’s bottom line.

“Nevertheless, when I did continue the booking process and selected the otherwise misleading price, I was taken to another screen and the REQUIRED ‘facilities’ fee was now displayed. In other words, the true price was no longer concealed through a ‘fine print’ disclosure, hiding an extra fee that I simply could not avoid paying (i.e. minibar purchases are fully discretionary and consumers understand these types of purchases are extra and not disclosed while mandatory ‘facilities’ fee can’t be avoided and should always be conspicuously disclosed during booking). However, now I was able to make an informed decision knowing the actual price up front. Now I could choose to continue to the payment screen without the ‘sticker shock’ that I experienced weeks earlier at check-out because Priceline had failed to itemize as they correctly did yesterday.

“Yes, what a difference a few weeks makes. What a difference 'truth in advertising' makes.

“For the record, with fees and taxes added, the Priceline advertised price instantly jumped a whopping 54 percent!” Howe emphasized.

“But again, at least I knew what the total cost would be,” Howe reiterated. “And that makes a meaningful difference, particularly for families and individuals – young and old and everywhere in between – who may be traveling on a tight budget and can’t afford these expensive hidden fees that can easily catapult the total price of a hotel hundreds of dollars over an extended stay.

“Yes, I’m grateful that Priceline is now displaying the true cost prior to purchase. I’m also feeling empowered and content by my decision to file a formal complaint previously with the Federal Trade Commission when my 'pocket was picked' weeks earlier. Of course, the refund that I ultimately received was appreciated. It was a shock and a surprise that an organization would do the right thing without additional demand from the victim.

“It’s simple,” concluded the Credit Czar. “After respectfully admiring and observing the myriad civil and human rights landmarks in DC, for example the ‘Dr. Martin Luther King Memorial’, the ‘National Museum of African American History and Culture’, and stopping over the ‘Children’s Defense Fund’ headquarters this morning, fighting against every injustice – no matter how insignificant it may be perceived – felt like a cause worth pursuing with vigor and enthusiasm — just like the giants before us including the women and men of our Armed Services who sacrificed for the right,” the Credit Czar concluded.

He was a relatively unknown 38-year-old congressman from Jacksonville until he was handpicked by Trump”

— Dan Maduri

TAMPA, FL, UNITED STATES, August 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — United Cities Productions announced today that one of its primary content creators, Dan Maduri, was featured on MSNBC for commentary on Florida’s primary elections. Mr. Maduri is the host of Florida Live on AM 820 News Tampa Bay and 98.3 FM Pinellas County on air during the 1-2 PM block. MSNBC Host Ayman Mohyeldin filling in for Craig Melvin interviewed Mr. Maduri and explored the political atmosphere in one of America’s “purple states.”

The Florida gubernatorial election was the primary discussion during the interview. With Ron DeSantis and Andrew Gillum each winning their respective primary, Florida voters showed that they are moving away from the centralist politics and more toward the extremes. In the interview Mr. Maduri offered that DeSantis is a “relatively unknown 38-year-old congressman from Jacksonville until handpicked by Trump.” He continued to say that this outcome proves that Florida is moving away from its purple roots and becoming a “Red” state.

Florida’s Senate race took up the remainder of the interview. Rick Scott, the current Republican Governor of Florida, will square against the incumbent Democratic Senator Bill Nelson in the general election. Mr. Maduri sad that the well-funded and popular Scott should have no problem winning the seat. He continued, calling Nelson a “Ground Hog” Senator because “you never see him and never hear from him.” This lack of familiarity will be a hindrance to Nelson as there are 4 million new voters in Florida who do not know how he is.

NY Attorney General Underwood Protecting Cuomo Corruption

NYS Attorney General Barbara Underwood must immediately resign and be investigated along with Governor Cuomo by the US Department of Justice

Thousands of sexual assaults and deaths of the people with disabilities are occurring within Cuomo’s mental health agencies and almost all are covered-up

There cannot be equal justice in New York State or any state if our top officials disregard the laws and our constitutions, this is lawlessness.”

— Michael Carey – Civil Rights & Disability Rights Advocate

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, August 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Jonathan Carey Foundation has done everything possible to protect human lives and stop the wide-scale civil rights atrocities and human rights violations against our most vulnerable. Governor Andrew Cuomo has done the exact opposite by guarding and protecting most sexual predators, pedophiles, rapists and individuals whose actions or inactions have taken an innocent human life.

New York State Attorney General Barbara Underwood is attempting to protect Governor Andrew Cuomo who is directly involved. The Jonathan Carey Foundation has sent nine certified or priority mail letters directly to AG Underwood and nothing is being done by her or her office to stop these state and federal crimes, including the massive Medicaid fraud surrounding these cover-ups. As the State of New York’s top attorney, this is her responsibility per the AG website:

• Criminal Enforcement and Financial Crimes Bureau
• Investigations Bureau
• Medicaid Fraud Control Unit
• Organized Crime Task Force
• Public Integrity Bureau
• Special Investigations and Prosecutions Unit

The Attorney General’s office is also tasked with ensuring civil rights, yet there is no evidence that the New York State Attorney General is doing this in any capacity for crime victims within the State’s extremely dangerous mental health care system. People with disabilities are human beings, equal human beings that have constitutional rights. Both the New York State and United States Constitutions promise everyone ‘equal protections of the laws’, but the discrimination and blatant denying of these individuals rights continue.

Attorney General Barbara Underwood has the responsibility to protect the people of New York State and to honor her oath of office. Instead, AG Underwood is protecting Governor Andrew Cuomo and other top officials that are ensuring most crimes committed against the disabled never get to 911 call systems, the police and county elected District Attorney’s, so they cannot be prosecuted. Tragically, Miss Underwood has failed the most vulnerable and has assisted in the criminal cover-ups, the civil rights atrocities and the Medicaid fraud ponzi scheme.

Michael Carey, the founder of the Jonathan Carey Foundation and a well respected civil rights and disability rights advocate has publicly called for AG Underwood to immediately resign. There cannot be equal justice in New York State or any state if our top officials disregard the laws and our constitutions, this is lawlessness. Federal criminal and civil rights investigations must ensue swiftly to hold corrupt New York State officials accountable. People with blatant disregard for the law have no business being in any position of authority in government.

TOKYO, JAPAN, August 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Tokyo, Japan (PRWEB) August 31, 2018

Ganapati Group two co-CEOs of the G8C issuing company: GanaEight Coin Limited, met with the Prime Minister of the Republic of Malta, Hon. Joseph Muscat, who expressed his interest in the company’s ICO as Malta continues to promote itself firmly as the Blockchain island.

The Co-CEOs of GanaEight Coin Limited, the legal entity which will issue G8C, met with Maltese Hon. Prime Minister, Joseph Muscat, in Tokyo on July 31st 2018, during his visit to Japan.

The Company gave the Hon. Prime Minister an overview of the Ganapati Group, its ICO, and the features and merits of its own blockchain online casino platform – as well as an explanation of how the Group secures such talented personnel. This all leads to the conclusion that it was mainly due to the legislative progress in Malta, which made it the country of first choice in which to establish the new ICO. Based on such a solid foundation, business in Malta surely will expand exponentially and imminently.

The Prime Minister is welcoming G8C to Malta and assured Ganapati full support on the project.

The Prime Minister expressed appreciation of the appointment of Japanese and Maltese lawyers as co-CEOs, in order to ensure compliance with the laws of the pertinent countries. The Hon. Prime Minister also outlined that Malta – being the issuing country of G8C – has become a successful example of ICO development. He also showed his admiration for the Company’s development of an online casino platform based on proprietary blockchains that blend I.T. technology, finance knowledge, Japanese content together with the experience and expertise in the online casino industry.

The backing from the Hon. Prime Minister of Malta signifies a huge step forward towards the success of Ganapati’s ICO.

Palm Beach County State Attorney Aronberg Launches Website to Convince Federal Policymakers to Fix the Florida Shuffle

#FixTheFloridaShuffle

WEST PALM BEACH, FL, USA, August 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — August 24, 2018 – Targeting fraud and abuse in the drug treatment and sober home industries, Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg announced today that he has launched a website, www.FixTheFloridaShuffle.com, to convince federal policymakers to change the laws that have unwittingly led to thousands of opioid-related deaths throughout the country.

“The Florida Shuffle” refers to illegal patient brokering and insurance fraud within the drug treatment industry that keeps patients in an unending cycle of opioid dependence. “Although there are many good drug treatment and sober living providers in Florida and elsewhere,” said Aronberg, “the unscrupulous ones encourage relapse over recovery to line their pockets with insurance money and financial kickbacks.”

Aronberg, who has fought opioid abuse since 2001 as a Florida Assistant Attorney General, State Senator, and now as State Attorney, urged Congressional action during testimony before the House Committee on Energy and Commerce last December. He currently leads a Sober Homes Task Force that has made 54 arrests and 22 convictions since October 2016, and led to changes in Florida law that enhanced criminal penalties and tightened oversight over the rehab industry.

Aronberg said the website was a response to the federal government’s failure to address this crisis: “The website shows the public and the policymakers themselves how well-intended laws such as the Affordable Care Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act have been misused by unscrupulous individuals within the rehab industry for financial gain to keep addicts in a perpetual cycle of relapse.”

The website includes a explanation of the Florida Shuffle along with specific proposals to fix it, an updating news section about the issue, social media links and an online petition to urge federal action.

One of the proposals on the new website is for Congress to pass the “Eliminating Kickbacks in Recovery Act” by Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), which would expand the jurisdiction of the U.S. Department of Justice to prosecute patient brokering kickbacks involving private sector rehab. Aronberg has worked with both Senator Rubio (R-FL) and Bill Nelson (D-FL) on these issues, which led to the recent introduction of this legislation.

No taxpayer funds were used for the new website, which went live today.

NY Attorney General Barbara Underwood Must Resign Immediately

NYS Attorney General Barbara Underwood must immediately resign and be investigated by the US Department of Justice

BuzzFeed News exposes that AG Underwood suspends investigation of Manhattan DA Vance per Governor Andrew Cuomo’s directive

Why in the world would AG Underwood obey such an order by Gov. Cuomo other than an attempt to protect the governor?”

— Michael Carey – Civil Rights & Disability Rights Advocate

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, August 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The extremely damning BuzzFeed investigative report is only the tip of the iceberg of the Cuomo/Vance collusion and criminal cover-ups. The BuzzFeed News investigative report titled, “New York’s Governor Has suspended An Investigation Into The Handling Of A 2015 Weinstein Case” dated August 28, 2018 begins to expose an incestuous criminal enterprise. Top State officials, including AG Underwood are protecting countless sexual predators, pedophiles and rapists from criminal prosecution.

https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/albertsamaha/vance-weinstein-investigation-cuomo-suspended-sexual

Michael Carey, the founder of the Jonathan Carey Foundation who also is a well known and respected civil rights and disability rights advocate has uncovered a pattern of criminal cover-ups in which both Cuomo and Vance are directly involved and AG Underwood is protecting. Michael Carey has been exposing that almost all sexual assaults and rapes of primarily women and children with disabilities within Cuomo’s mental health agencies are never criminally investigated or prosecuted. The cover-ups are purposeful and ordered by Gov. Cuomo and other top State officials to conceal the shame of these sexual assault atrocities happening with the governors agencies from the public, but also to protect the State of New York from multi-million dollar lawsuits.

This news story regarding a State employee/caregiver who is a pedophile will disgust you. Stephen DeProspero called Cuomo’s system “a predators dream”. DeProsero was caught by the feds in a porn sting or he would still be sexually assaulting disabled children in a State run group home today. "The lack of supervision there made it easy to do what I did," DeProspero said in a handwritten affidavit obtained by The Associated Press. "I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream." It is Governor Andrew Cuomo and corrupt DA’s, such as Cy Vance that have protected sexual predators like DeProspero and Weinstein and God only knows how many others. Why in the world would AG Underwood obey such an order by Gov. Cuomo other than an attempt to protect the governor?

The main motive though beyond these most heinous criminal cover-ups of sexual assaults is to guard New York State’s Medicaid Fraud Ponzi Scheme. Massive amounts of federal tax dollar money that are supposed to used to provide safe care and services for people with disabilities and individuals mental health problems are being used for other than billed for purposes. Cuomo’s fraudulent Justice Center abuse hotline makes sure almost all sexual assaults and rapes of this vulnerable population disappear and are never reported to local police and are never criminally investigated. Manhattan DA Cy Vance Jr. has been part of this scheme for years ensuring that most disabled women and children rape victims within his county and jurisdiction never obtain justice.

There is an extremely high likelihood that the reason Governor Andrew Cuomo has directed New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood to cease from investigating Cy Vance Jr. is to stop Vance from throwing Cuomo under the bus. Article 13 Section 13 of the New York State Constitution requires the county elected DA’s to prosecute all crimes within their county, which include crimes against all people with disabilities. All New York State’s 62 DA’s cannot prosecute sexual assault and rape crimes if Cuomo’s fraudulent Justice Center ensures that most of these crimes are never reported to the DA’s. State records obtained through Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) reveal massive numbers of sexual assaults are reported annually and hardly any criminal prosecutions. Without question, very ugly and dark deals have been made behind closed doors and it usually surrounds massive amounts of money and power.

In the matters that are being brought forth in this press release, the massive iceberg of sexual assault and rape cover-ups beneath the surface must come to light. Governor Andrew Cuomo, Manhattan DA Cy Vance Jr. and Attorney General Underwood must be investigated by the US Department of Justice and held accountable to the full extent of the law. Numerous federal crimes have been committed and countless sexual predators just as bad or far worse than Harvey Weinstein have been protected from criminal prosecution to be able to continue to violate innocent women and children and destroy many lives. It is time for Cuomo, Vance and Underwood to reap what they have sown; protecting sexual predators is amongst the most egregious crimes imaginable and shocks the soul of anyone of moral character. Our society cannot succeed when we fail to protect our most vulnerable and when those in power that have sworn oaths to honor the constitution and uphold justice do the exact opposite. This wickedness and corruption that goes to the very top in New York State must be stopped now.

Study: Community Oncology Practices Have Lost $78 Million Due to Medicare Sequester

Practices Lost an Average of 32% in the First Quarter of 2018 Due to Application of 2% Sequester Cut to Medicare Part B Drug Reimbursement

The sequester cut has decimated the community oncology system, causing millions of Americans to lose access to high-quality, affordable cancer care close to where they live and work”

BROOKLYN, NY, UNITED STATES, August 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Community oncology practices have lost $78 million as a result of the ongoing Medicare sequester cut to reimbursement for Part B drugs. This amounts to practices losing an average of more than $847,000 each due to the sequester cut, which has driven an increase in the number of closings and rate of closure of community oncology practices in the United States.

Sequestration is an automatic cut to Federal government spending triggered because Congress was unable to negotiate a balanced budget in 2011. The blunt budget cutting gimmick has been extended multiple times, with the current sequester scheduled to continue through 2027. Beginning in 2013, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) began to apply a 2% budget sequester cut to all Medicare Part B reimbursement, including for drugs.

The study found that all community oncology practices experienced a significant impact from sequestration. Examining data and reimbursement over a 27-month study period from January 2016 to March 2018, the authors found that at the beginning of 2016, each practice, on average, experienced an approximate 28% to 31% loss due to sequestration. This remained steady for large practices, while the small and medium practices began to experience more impact (38.4% and 34.7%, respectively). The overall average loss was 32% in the first quarter of 2018.

“This research quantifies what we have known for far too long: The sequester cut has decimated the community oncology system, causing millions of Americans to lose access to high-quality, affordable cancer care close to where they live and work,” said Lucio Gordan, MD, lead study author, a practicing medical oncologist/hematologist, and director of quality and medical informatics at one of the nation’s largest community oncology practice, Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute. “Practices simply cannot afford to keep the lights on for patients as long as they have to absorb the hundreds of thousands of dollars in cuts imposed by the sequester.”

The application of the sequester cut to cancer drug payment set up the nation’s cancer care system for the closure or consolidation of independent community oncology practices, where the majority of Americans with cancer are treated. This has created access problems for patients as cancer care moves into the much more expensive hospital system, driving up costs for seniors with limited mobility and fixed incomes, as well as all taxpayers who fund Medicare.

The 2018 Community Oncology Practice Impact Report showed that, since the sequester started in 2013, approximately 135 independent community cancer clinics – many comprised of multiple locations – have been forced to close their doors, and approximately 190 clinics have been acquired by hospitals. Research has found that the consolidation of community cancer practices into hospitals cost Medicare and taxpayers an extra $2 billion in 2014 alone. In addition, Medicare beneficiaries responsible for the 20% coinsurance saw their bills rise by $500 million in that same year.

Earlier this year, the Community Oncology Alliance (COA) filed a lawsuit to stop the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) from applying the Medicare sequester cut to reimbursement for Part B drugs. COA represents independent, community-based oncologists, and the lawsuit shows the sequester cut has harmed patients, decimated the nation’s independent community cancer care system, and cost seniors and taxpayers billions in unnecessary health care spending.

“The sequester cut to Medicare Part B drug reimbursement is both illegal and unconstitutional, and it has cost practices millions of dollars in just the last two years. This is in addition to the billions that it has cost seniors and Medicare in unnecessary spending from shifting cancer care to the more expensive hospital setting,” said Ted Okon, executive director of COA. “The data in this study is eye-opening and should clearly demonstrate the need for Congress and the Trump Administration to fix this misguided constitutional violation.”

The study was published today in Evidence-Based Oncology, a publication of The American Journal of Managed Care. It was conducted by Lucio Gordan, MD, director of quality and medical informatics, Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute; Cass Schaedig, vice president, Practice Business Solutions, ION Solutions, a part of AmerisourceBergen; and Susan Weidner, MBA, MS, is senior vice president for IntrinsiQ Specialty Solutions.

The researchers looked at an aggregated database of medical claims from 92 practices across 33 states and representing a diverse mix of small, medium, and large practices. The practices examined saw a combined 396,848 patients with a variety of cancer types.
