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.

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..

A Widening Food Gap: U.S.
Eating Habits Have Improved,

Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 9/2/2014 11:55:58 AM     Post Reply
American eating habits have improved — except among the poor, evidence of a widening wealth gap when it comes to diet. Yet even among wealthier adults, food choices remain far from ideal, a 12-year study found. (Snip)Scores for low-income adults were lower than the average and barely budged during the years studied. They averaged almost four points lower than those for high-income adults at the beginning; the difference increased to more than six points in 2009-10. Higher scores mean greater intake of heart-healthy foods including vegetables, fruits, whole grains and healthy fats, and a high score means a low risk

Mr Cameron, whose own son Ivan died at the age of six in 2009, refused to criticise Mr and Mrs King for smuggling their son out of a British hospital against his doctor’s wishes after deciding he would get better treatment abroad.

President Obama spent Labor Day in Wisconsin, opening the campaign season in a battleground state with a tight race for governor — but the Democrat at the top of the ticket there was nowhere to be seen. Mary Burke, who is battling to unseat Republican Gov. Scott Walker, decided to steer clear of Obama’s visit to LaborFest, an annual salute to organized labor held in Milwaukee.

WASHINGTON — President Obama is considering a delay of his most controversial proposals to revamp immigration laws through executive action until after the midterm elections in November, mindful of the electoral peril for Democratic Senate candidates, according to allies of the administration who have knowledge of White House deliberations. The president vowed in late June to act unilaterally, declaring a deep frustration with what he termed Republican obstruction in Congress. He pledged to act to reshape the immigration system soon after he received recommendations from senior advisers at the end of the summer. But now Mr. Obama and his aides appear to

MOSCOW — As Russian-backed rebels entrenched themselves in a newly captured, strategically located town in southeast Ukraine on Friday, President Vladimir V. Putin bluntly strengthened Moscow’s hard-line position that the government in Kiev must be compelled to negotiate regional autonomy. Abandoning his more frequent conciliatory stance, Mr. Putin issued a rare, open, congratulatory message to the insurgents. They had “achieved a major success in intercepting Kiev’s military operation,” he said on his website.Behind the message, and the wider military operation, analysts saw several Kremlin goals. Most important, they said, is that Mr. Putin wants to force terms, first laid down in

The FBI said late Monday that it was investigating leaked nude photos that targeted Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The agency told the Associated Press that it was addressing accusations that online accounts of celebrities, including Oscar-winner Lawrence, had been hacked, leading to the posting of their nude photographs online. In addition, Apple Inc. spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the company was investigating whether any iCloud accounts were compromised, according to the AP.

Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city.
