This is Jeremy “Remi” Graber:
Remi is originally from Portland, OR, and was active in their “Occupy Portland” protests. He was even arrested for stealing the American flag from outside the Portland Courthouse:
An Occupy Portland protester caught on camera stealing a U.S. flag from the Gus Solomon U.S. Courthouse during last week’s May Day protests is expected to be arraigned Wednesday on a federal theft charge. Jeremy Graber, a 26-year-old Portland State University student, is accused of stealing government property valued at less than $1,000. A conviction on the charge carries a potential punishment of up to one year in jail. A day after the protest, a Portland police officer reviewed a video on a live-streaming website — www.ustream.tv — and identified Graber as the flag snatcher, according to a May 4 search warrant affidavit. Graber, identified as a denizen of the Occupy movement’s encampment in Lownsdale and Chapman squares
Yet despite the fact that this would come up on any CORI or background check, he (or she depending on what day it is) drives an ambulance for the private company Medstar.
MedStar Ambulance Inc. is a Leominster-based ambulance company. Why would a legitimate ambulance company choose to hire a criminal like this? Well, probably because they’re pretty shady too. Earlier this year MedStar agreed to pay more than $12 million to settle a lawsuit because they were fraudulently billing Medicare for its service:
The $12.7 million settlement includes a payment of about $3.5 million to Dale Meehan, a Sturbridge woman and former MedStar billing manager, who filed the lawsuit under the whistleblower provisions of the False Claims Act in 2013. “We expect those who participate in the Medicare program to provide services, including ambulance services, based on the medical needs of patients rather than the their desire to maximize profits,” said Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Benjamin C. Mizer in a press release about the settlement.
In the civil suit, Meehan alleged that between 2011 and 2014, Medstar would bill for services that patients did not require and “up code” transports to be billed as an emergency service when the transport was not an emergency. In one example, alleged Meehan, a patient was transported by stretcher to and from the Golden Living Center in Fitchburg by MedStar to see a urologist for a routine pre-scheduled medical appointment. For the round trip, MedStar billed Medicare $1,130, despite the patient not being confined to bed and able to walk.
In another example of the alleged fraudulent billing practices, Meehan said, MedStar would be called by a municipal ambulance service that only provided basic life support services to “intercept” a patient that needed advance life support. In those situations, according to Meehan’s allegations, MedStar would bill Medicare for the full amount of the transport, when it was supposed to bill the municipality for an agreed-to contract amount usually between $250 and $275. The municipality was then responsible for billing Medicare, alleged Meehan.
Her lawsuit sought damages for three counts, two related specifically to the “false claims” and one for retaliation by MedStar against Meehan, who claims she was fired in 2013 because of “her continued questions” about the alleged fraudulent billing and attempts to correct the documentation.
And yet for some reason Leominster 911 contracts with this company to this day. In contrast, Worcester uses Worcester EMS as the primary 911 company. They are owned by UMass hospital, which technically makes them a private company, but they’re treated and respected like a city agency (much like Worcester PD and Worcester FD). Why the city of Leominster still contracting with this company after they proved they had a history of bilking the government with fraudulent medicare claims is beyond me. Perhaps Dean Mazerella should try do something about that. Just sayin.
MedStar also has offices out of the following places:
Not sure which of those towns and cities MedStar is used by, but they should all disassociate themselves with them as quickly as possible.
Naturally then a guy/girl like Remi Graber would be the ideal employee for this company. He/she came to our attention after posting this on the Facebook machine:
Is he/she allowed to urge people to step on the flag? Yes. Is he/she allowed to tell people to dishonor a soldier who cannot walk because of the sacrifices the soldier made for his country? Yes. Is this the look that MedStar is going for from its employees? Based on their reputation, quite possibly, yes.
But here’s the thing – Remi Graber is a proud, card carrying Antifa terrorist:
As you can see he refers to himself as “Mama’s Occupy Medic.”
Last week he was in Boston for the anti-free speech Antifa violence, and he participated in it. Here he is posting about his comrades running after a free speech advocate, or as he called them, “a white supremacist”:
His Anqueefa friends cheered him on in the comments:
He was also down in Washington DC to protest the inauguration of the elected President of the United States with his Anqeefa friends:
Last year he was arrested in Philadelphia while protesting outside of the DNC:
He’s not hiding it either. He’s posting it all over the Internet. He’s badmouthing the cops for doing their job. Yet MedStar still chooses to employ him.
He proudly refers to himself as a “socialist, anarchist, communist”:
Which is weird, because communism and socialism represent total government control of everything, while anarchists represent no government at all. Then again these people aren’t really good at critical thinking either.
Here he is redecorating Providence courthouse and the racist symbols of justice and law and order that are displayed outside:
Even though he works for an ambulance company that does attempt to save lives, he considers the fact that he’s a dude in drag to be his biggest accomplishment:
Because in 2017, this is what REAL bravery looks like:
So strong. So brave.
He/she wasn’t fooled by the “free speech” protesters, and thinks moderate liberals are too accepting of people who want to exercise their first amendment rights. Not him/her though. He/she has no intention of grandstanding about “nonviolence”:
In other words, he will physically attack you if you have opinions that run contrary to his.
Good thing when you dial 911 in Leominster that this guy/girl will be the one picking you up. Hope you’re not wearing a MAGA hat though, because he might just let you die.
Anyway, he ended up taking that meme down because of all the backlash he got. And since he works in the public safety field you would think he’d be sympathetic towards others, such as firefighters and cops. Instead he announced that people who are upset about the meme should really be angry at the cops for killing black people for sport:
Oh, and I’m sure that MedStar would love the fact that their employee recently went to some sort of nightclub in Providence where he showed his gratitude for the finalists of the prestigious “Mr. New England Leather” contest, while down on his knees of course:
Oh yea, this is the kind of guy I’d want working for my company. And this is the kind of company the city of Leominster should be PROUD to associate itself with. Definitely.
Here’s Remi’s Facebook page, which is wide open for comments. Whatever you do, DO NOT flood his page with your thoughts about his Anqueefa anarchist tendencies.
Here’s MedStar’s Facebook page. Whatever you do, DO NOT flood their page with one star reviews and negative comments. Yes, they’re a shady company that runs up fraudulent Medicare bills and bilks the taxpayers. Sure, they are making a conscious choice to employ an Antifa chud who attacks peaceful protesters, desecrates the American flag, and has been arrested multiple times. But doing that to their Facebook page would be mean!!
We urge you to support the following local businesses.
