Soccer Balls, Sanctimony and A
Billion Dollar Group Called “Baptist
Child and Family Services”…

Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 7/17/2014 11:04:13 AM

A few days ago we posted some details, and a large dose of opinion, about the latest misguided efforts of Glenn Beck’s “Bold and Sanctimonious Tour” – and a strange thing happened…. few, if any, thought our critical outline was controversial. It would appear the Patriotic U.S. Sleeping Giant is awake, at least on this issue. What follows below is a little more depth on the issue of “Faith Based” organizations and those receiving federal grants to facilitate illegal immigration. We have received numerous requests to turn the eye of research into exactly what these organizations are. Specifically, one group

Comments:
"Baptist Child & Family Services" ...that dropped "Baptist" from its name and is now just "BCFS", which stands for about nothing. A visit to their website will verify this - and yield little info about who they are. All behind a registration/password wall. No apparent connection to the Baptist church.

Oops.

Federal Charity courtesy of the U.S. Taxpayer. Is it really “charity” when the federal government is using the IRS to collect the “offering”?

I cannot tell you how much this angers me. It gives all legitimate Christian non-profits a bad name and reflects poorly on the church as a whole.

While everyone knows bad apples are found in every barrel, to find such gross impropriety under the cover of charity is more than despicable. It´s bad enough we Christians have to endure the inanities and immoralities of many TV evangelists, but to uncover this nest of vipers just adds to the piling on.

As for Glenn Beck, he may be prescient in some things, and for that he gets credit, but this latest hysterical reaction of his is just plain nutty.

Heard Michael Savage say other nite that Catholic Charities have received Two BILLION Dollars from the U.S. government. I believe him.

Several years ago, when it was discovered that Officers in Catholic Charities were Pro-Abortion, their donations from parishioners really dropped. I never donate to them anymore.

I would think if Catholic Charities became more orthodox and less progressive, that their donations would skyrocket, and they would not have to partner with the United States Government anymore.

How come some people are so selective when they complain about when churches can and cannot partner with the state?

Here is an article from the Baptist Press (published by the Southern Baptist Convention) that talks in detail about BCFS:

http://townhall.com/news/religion/2014/07/07/nonprofit-defends-care-of-child-refugees-n1859734

BCFS has been operating the facility for illegal alien invaders at Lackland AFB, the one that has received so much negative publicity for its secretive tactics.

BCFS had planned to spend $50 million of its latest $190+ million federal grant to convert the Palm Aire Resort into a facility to house more of these illegals. They backed out of this when the publicity became v. negative.

Sunlight and transparency are their enemies, apparently. Operating below the radar has been their MO. And raking in a ton of our taxpayer dollars in grants.

The payroll information alone is stunning. Usually a good place to start when evaluating "charities"..

The Feds have been financing this invasion of UAC since Obama took office- there is no surprise.
These salaries are obscene.
They funneled this money to these bureaucrats masquerading as religious charity all the while stripping MEDICARE.
HHS and DHS are enabling illegal immigration.

And to think that the residential facility where my 40-yr-old disabled daughter lives (a Catholic "charity") is constantly brow-beating and threatening to throw us out if we don´t cough up thousands of dollars each year above and beyond her Medicaid, SS payment. The govt is a thief. This needs so be sent to a reporter with liberal credentials but a brain in his/her head. Any ideas??

Absolutely a Must Read! This is scandalous.

This one organization got over $200 million in one month for illegals. The CEO makes almost $500,000. Total salaries of employees equals 33 million, completely funded by grant money (tax dollars).

I wonder what CEO´s ties are to Obama, Jarrett and the Dems.

Yes, #8.

And just who are these "employees" and how many of them are there, who are recipients of the 33 million?

One can not help but think of all the "green" companies which received billions and billions out of the so-called "Stimulus" bill... nicely lined the very deep pockets of Friends of Obama (and other Democrats).

And the Dem/Lefties are constantly screaming for more and more and more money from the struggling taxpayer.

truly sickening.

Call your Congress members.

In answer to the ending question "Is this charity" ? the answer is NO - it´s big business with high paid managers. This also explains the sanctimony where charitable groups talk about charity and say nothing about the cause of the crisis as they take on the task of resettling the flood of illegal immigrants. Yes we are all so inspired by your unselfish charity. You put the rest of us to shame! /s

The invasion of our country by illegal aliens has provided a windfall for companies like BCFS.

I call it a company, because that is what it is. How a "charity" can be called "non-profit" when it pays salaries like this to its management is beyond me.

From Patheos:

After it was revealed recently that a board member of Catholic Charities in Florida was actually the same lobbyist for Planned Parenthood that said infanticide should be a matter between a woman and her doctor, this story exposes the fact that CCUSA is a dues-paying member and on the board of an organization that lobbied Congress to maintain funding for Planned Parenthood..

Just think, we are borrowing money from China to fund organizations such as these that are supporting the unending flow of illegal aliens into this country, which in turn are Fundamentally Transforming our country into a 3rd rate banana republic welfare state. We are unwillingly funding our own destruction. What a nightmare.

Using information within the TAGGS system for Health and Human Services we are able to identify the recipients for Grants specifically designated for “Unaccompanied Alien Children”, or UAC’s. With that data, a few more search tools, some time and a little more research, we are able to identify the locations of facilities throughout the country where the HHS grants are being directed and the UAC’s are being transferred/housed. There are essentially two broad types: Residence Care, and Transitional to Foster Care Services.From the FY 2014 HHS Grants we can identify the communities where direct HHS UAC funds have been sent.

HOYLAKE, England — Despite ominous predictions and extreme measures, thunder and lightning never materialized to threaten the players during the third round at the British Open. But when the last putt was holed shortly before the deluge on Saturday, the Open, the world’s oldest major golf tournament, was still in grave danger of turning into a rout. Rory McIlroy was grounded and befuddled as he missed the cut at last year’s Open at Muirfield. This year, he is soaring above the field at Royal Liverpool: turning its par 5s into his personal playgrounds. Still just 25, McIlroy has won his

After sunset, loud Israeli artillery barrages were beginning in the north. The morning attack, along with another later in the day that the military said it foiled, highlighted what Israel is coming to see as a security threat more dangerous than the Islamic militant group´s arsenal of rockets.The raids also showed the militants are energized, set against Israel´s deepening resolve to continue its

(Video) The Washington Free Beacon has put together a greatest hits compilation of the Democrats’ border security quotes. Why would the Democrats continuously insist that the border is secure? Perhaps because Republicans insist on having a secure border before discussing any type of immigration reform legislation. Democrats don’t think people will catch up to this at some point?

At a political event in Wilmington, Delaware, on Thursday, President Obama devoted only 40 seconds to the shooting down of the Malaysian airline, his first statement to the world following the news. His emotionless reference to the attack as ‘a terrible tragedy’ seemed disconnected from the horrific moment, particularly as he immediately reverted to script to praise his administration and criticise Republicans. It was a far cry from President Reagan’s 1983 fierce denunciation of the Soviet shooting down of a Korean airliner as a ‘crime against humanity’. But it only confirmed the chaos into which US foreign policy has descended since the summer

LOS ANGELES — Actor James Garner, whose whimsical style in the 1950s TV Western “Maverick” led to a stellar career in TV and films such as “The Rockford Files” and his Oscar-nominated “Murphy’s Romance,” has died, police said. He was 86. He was found dead of natural causes at his home in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles Saturday evening, Los Angeles police officer Alonzo Iniquez said early Sunday. Police responded to a call around 8 p.m. PDT and confirmed Garner’s identity from family members, Iniquez told The Associated Press. There was no immediate word on a more specific cause of death. Garner had suffered a stroke in May 2008, just weeks after his 80th birthday.
