Nevada Republican with quack ‘cancer is a fungus’ cure loses healthcare business license

Published

on

A GOP lawmaker who claimed that cancer is a fungus that can be treated with salt water has had the license for her home healthcare business in Nevada pulled, reports KTNV.

Republican Assemblywoman Michele Fiore’s home based “Always There 4 You” health care company has been under investigation by the state after she refused to allow inspectors to look at her books despite receiving $6 million in Medicaid funding over a five year period.

After Fiore refused to meet with auditors and threatened officials with political retaliation, the Nevada Bureau of Health Care Quality and Compliance pulled the flamboyant lawmaker’s license on Tuesday after being unable to contact her.

Inspectors who showed up at Fiore’s headquarters — after she failed to respond to a registered letter — found a new company moving into her former place of business.

According to a statement from Fiore, she claims she decided to close the business due to government red tape.

Unmentioned in Fiore’s complaint about government interference were the multiple I.R.S tax liens that have been filed against her and her business.

Fiore came to national attention after claiming on her local radio show, “If you have cancer, which I believe is a fungus, and we can put a pic line into your body and we’re flushing with, say, salt water, sodium cardonate (sic) through that line and flushing out the fungus.”

The lawmaker has also been associated with fee-dodging rancher Cliven Bundy while appearing at his rallies, has filed paperwork to run for U.S. Congress, and recently posed for a gun calendar which she is selling for $25 on her campaign website.

Brace yourself for months of lawlessness — ‘Election Night’ likely will not end until 2021

There’s nothing wrong with treating American politics like a sport as long as everyone involved in the competition is playing the same sport by the same rules. There’s nothing wrong as long as both sides agree the rules are legitimate, both commit to obeying them and both accept the consequences when they break them.

But there is a problem with treating American politics like a sport when one side is playing soccer and the other is playing football while neither can agree to the rules, because one side won’t commit to obeying them. There is something wrong when one side not only refuses to accept the consequences of rule-breaking but sets out to undermine the idea of rules altogether. In that case, treating politics like a sport, as the Washington press corps habitually does, isn’t helpful. It’s harmful. Even dangerous.

‘Deranged’ Trump pummeled for lying that ‘practicing Catholic’ Joe Biden will ‘hurt God’

Published

on

President Donald Trump used a supposedly non-political event Thursday afternoon to attack his Democratic opponent with a lie, saying former Vice President Joe Biden will "hurt God" if elected.

In the strange pronouncement on the tarmac in Cleveland, Ohio, Trump falsely claimed that Biden will "take away your guns. Destroy your Second Amendment. No religion. No anything. Hurt the Bible. Hurt God. He’s against God. He’s against guns. He’s against energy."

Investigative reporter David Cay Johnston explains when you’ll see Trump get indicted

Published

Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter David Cay Johnston appeared Thursday on CNN, where he explained when he believed President Donald Trump would be indicted.

After receiving a subpoena from New York prosecutors last year, Deutsche Bank reportedly handed over detailed records about their dealings with Trump, according to the New York Times. The subpoena indicates that the investigation of Trump's family business is more expansive than previously thought.

"Prosecutors already have the basic tax information on Donald Trump. Your state tax return is virtually identical to your federal return, and the IRS shares tax information with the state," Johnston explained to CNN host Brianna Keilar.
