The Obama Dallas Immigration Visit –
The Curious Case of Obama’s “Faith
Leaders” and Obama’s “Faith-Based Groups”…

Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 7/19/2014 10:51:20 AM

On July 9th 2014 President Obama made a visit to Dallas Texas for two reasons. The first reason was fundraising, the second reason was to meet with Governor Rick Perry and “Faith Leaders” to discuss the border crisis. (Snip)A wider angle of the picture would reveal a more integral player seated at the table. A person mistakenly characterized by the media, but perhaps the most significant benefactor of the entire immigration roundtable.In the lower left of this image you see a man named Kevin Dinnin. Before we get into the curriculum vitae of Mr. Dinnin we first need to set

Comments:
In this instance his "faith leaders" have no connection to any religion, no churches, no congregations, and are in fact government-funded non-profits. Like ACORN.

Thanks to TCTH, we now know that Kevin Dinnin is the head of BCFS, the non-profit that was handed $190 million in grants to operate facilities for coping with the invading illegal alien "kids". His compensation alone comes in at more than $400K/year.

Read this investigative piece. It´s an expose. It lays out in plain English, and with supporting data and documentation, Obie´s deliberate mendacity in describing what had taken place at this meeting and who was involved.

Do what you can to get this information to your congressmen (House and Senate), because I strongly doubt that they have a clue.

Ignorance is bliss only for a very short time. Inevitably, ineluctably, the Grim Reaper will make his call.

All ACORN - just renamed. These are the "BROWN SHIRTS" who restricted access from viewing at detention centers. They are the ones who threatened nurses, doctors, etc., telling them to keep their mouths shut.

FTA: (And remember, this is OUR money, YOUR money.)

Two days before this meeting with President Obama, on 7/7/14 Mr. Dinnin was given a grant from Health and Human Services in the amount of $190,707,505.

Yes, that is over $190 million dollars just before he met with the President. In 2014 alone BCFS has received almost $270 million.
(Snip for pdf documentation)
These are staggering sums of money to just one of several taxpayer funded groups operating under the guise of “faith based organizations”. The amounts awarded to these “faith based” groups in 2014 far exceeds the money ever given to the fraudulent social assistance group, ACORN. And the 2014 grant amounts are EXPLODING in comparison to 2012 and 2013.

As previously listed here is the 2012 Tax Return for BCFS:
(Snip for pdf documents.)
Catholic Bishops so far in 2014 $27 Million is another albeit smaller example, after receiving almost $70 million in 2012.

But the most staggering figure is what HHS has spent on Unaccompanied Minor Children (under grant code 93676) since the President’s 2012 Deferred action program began:

$644,188,522.00


And we wonder why these so-called "faith-based" organizations are all for this "humanitarian effort"?

Please, Web-masters, make this a "Must Read."

What a scam. Slush-fund. What a fraudulent use of taxpayer money. Maybe, this type of con is what all the Czars dream up. This is just hiding in plain sight. If you make a HUGE grant of moneys, it legitimizes the cause, and nobody asks questions. Especially, if it is to a "religious" organization. Who would question their charitable, altruistic motives?

The salary compensations are outrageous for a charitable organization. How much oversight is this organization given? What are the results of all of this money spent? Disgusting!

Good article, but nothing new. The American Spectator carried an article in the late 90´s about Catholic Charities and how 50 percent of its revenue was from taxpayer dollars. As usual, zippy is just carrying things to an art form. BTW, where is the separation of church and state crowd on this issue?

FTA "And I indicated in hearing the stories of churches that are prepared to not just make donations but send volunteers to help construct some of these facilities or fix them up, and their willingness to volunteer in providing care and assistance to these children" - President obama

How can obama say such a thing if those in the meeting were not "faith leaders" but heads of Government funded non profits? Because he is a radical, a follower of Alinsky, a Marxist, a liar, he is all that and more but one thing he is not is an American! Should be a must read.

I had a feeling Perry was being set up. He should have requested a list of all people at the table before the meeting. I doubt seriously if they would have given it to him. They would have said we´re in the process of compiling a list. Read, send to your congressman & share article with your social media sites. 190 million to a so called faith based mission while our military is receiving pink slips while in combat.

Anyone really surprised? Obama is the king of obfuscation. It is evident that the border crisis has been in the planning for quite some time. Makes you wonder just what other schemes Obama has up his sleeve that we do not know about. It is clear to me Obama is actively working to remake this country in his own image. Would someone please light a fire under the pampered princes in Washington? They seem to be unconcerned or unaware of the destruction this one man has wrought on this country. What is it going to take to make them see the danger and urgency?

I have a feeling Anita Perry reads Lucianne.com. Mrs. Perry, please let your husband know that Obama´s "Catholic" and "Baptist" groups have nothing to do with churches that use those names. They are as faith-based as Acorn. Don´t let them get away with adopting words like Catholic and Baptist to fool genuine Texas Christians into supporting lies that have nothing to do with the Gospel and everything to do with God-hating progressivism. Please ask Rick to investigate and, if he finds that this article is correct, expose what they are doing in the name of Christ. Thank you.

Any mention of the undocumented Lord Obama´s name connected to: (A) "Faith Leaders" or (B) "Faith-Based Groups" should raise an immediate "red flag"...Anyone, like Lord Obama, who openly advocates unlimited abortions, to include partial birth abortions and infanticide, is pure and simply a barbarian, and cannot be trusted under any circumstance.

As a longtime donor to Catholic Charities, I was very surprised to read the assertion that it is "a government funded non-profit" that is no different than ACORN!

I visited their website (& encourage you to do the same). It hardly sounds like the same organization described in the article.

If you think Rick Perry doesn´t know exactly who and what those neo-ACORNsters are, you need to move to Rio Linda. He´s all we have for now but here in Texas, Rick Perry is in the politician biz, not the truth biz. If it doesn´t help Rick, he ain´t doin´ it. FWIW, it´s wonderful that Lucianne has been posting stuff from non-traditional sources like CT.

I have been telling this ever since Obama was elected the first time.

Obama is just the front man for the Marxist democrats and Marxist RINO´s.

They use fake front organizations calling them charities, yes everything but what they really are, Marxist communists organizations who are getting and using your tax dollars to fund the destruction of your America from within.

Everyone who voted for Obama is complicit in putting Marxist communists in charge of America´s government. I believe most of them are fellow comrades and the rest are just stupid useful morons, they probably suspected as much but refuse to believe the truth. Stupid means they know better but do it anyway.

Even the real "faith based" organizations dealing with immigration (yes, illegal immigration) get nearly all of their funding from the taxpayers. Here´s an example:

The financial data on the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and its immigration/refugee programs is in its own annual report here. And this was for 2012. All of these grants have increased since then.

Scroll down for the financial report:

http://www.usccb.org/about/migration-and-refugee-services/upload/Annual-Report-2012.pdf

You will find that of its total revenue of $70,975,237, $65,911,344 came from federal grants and contracts. These are THEIR numbers.

And federal grants ARE us!

From the link at #18,

9. Catholic Charities support an active public-private partnership with government at all levels.
The Catholic Church has a long and strong tradition of teaching about the responsibilities of government in promoting the common good and protecting the least among us, and the responsibilities of Catholics as citizens and taxpayers to support those roles and actively participate in civic life.

In light of these teachings, Catholic Charities have sought and accepted partnerships with cities, counties, states, and the federal government in which we receive government funding to provide services to the wider community that we judge to be consistent with our own mission. These payments may take the form of contracts to deliver particular services, such as foster care; voucher payment from individuals paid by government, such as Medicaid; and government funding of construction, such as housing. Government provides funding; we bring additional funding, volunteers, efficiency, values, community credibility, and dedication to the service of local communities and their needy families.

10. Catholic Charities blend advocacy for those in need and public education about social justice with service to individuals, families, and communities in need.


Right now they are neck deep in Obama´s "social justice" illegal immigration program. And being largely funded via federal grants and contracts, aka taxpayer funding via the IRS.

Words convey ideas in the mind. A person seeing "faith" will instantly think religion or Christianity ; therefore, moral and good. That is how so many have been deceived to support different ideas because words carry moral ideas and thoughts. A person should always look at the total picture instead and see what follows these "moral" words. In other words read the fine print. Faith in what??

It´s hard to argue with the tremendous investigative resource that this site has developed into, so it´s easy to accept the use of the name Sundance given the thoroughness of the information he/she has accumulated and offered for public consumption. Yet, I agree that names should ultimately be attached, just as Spengler has been identified as David Goldman.

Fascists seek to control religion as well. How better to cow people than to convince them what is being done is in the name of God. Regardless of belief, churches run on money. And once attached to the teat of government, they are reluctant to give up their place, and in fact, become dependant on the largess of The Won or whoever is next to come to power.

It is disgusting, corrupt, and ultimately destructive to religious freedom. When government makes religion an instrument of its bidding, then it is no longer a religion in the sense of its original purpose.

A comment concerning the growing size of the fraudulent government grants under the corrupt Obama reign of "hope and change".

As a young man, a lawyer friend and I entered into a sideline business of "flipping" houses, although it wasn´t called that in the 1960´s. The houses we were buying, fixing up, and reselling were in the 10 to 12K range.

One evening, over a beer, he suggested we apply for a bank loan, the size of which caused me to choke on my Budweiser. He wanted us to purchase a commercial building that was in distress.

After I recovered, he said something I´ve remembered ever since:

"You have to get in a line to take a banker to lunch, and buy him a martini, to ask (beg) for a fifty thousand dollar loan."

"If you want fifty million you will have bankers in line to take you to lunch, and buy you all the martinis you can drink."

I don´t know if this concept is in Saul Alinsky´s book, but if it isn´t, it should be!

I´m sort of relieved. I was really bummed out by the notion that the government was subsidizing Christian groups that were doing Obama´s dirty work. The religious aspect is clearly just a cover but a really good one. Now I´m worried that when the churches see how much money they can collect for being Obama´s cover, some of them might sanction it.

While not being able to cite any story or publication, I remember George W. Bush pushing some legislation increasing the amount of monies available to charities given by the government for humanitarian purposes. It seems to me that it was at the very end of his term. Maybe around Katrina time? Looks like it was the ground work for all these latest shenanigans. Someone correct me if I am mistaken.

As someone affiliated with The Conservative Tree House, I will address and defend the practice of using pseudonyms. CTH is written and administered by volunteers. We make no money from the blog, except for donations, which are used for research and costs. We have no ad revenue. I don´t handle the money, but I will bet we are in the hole financially. There are costs associated - such as a paid email account, blog fees, software etc. We each chip in to pay these expenses. All of our time, which is considerable, is provided at no charge.

Donations have been used for travel expenses and FOIA requests, which can be quite expensive, depending upon who is supplying the documents requested.

In addition, Sundance (who is not anonymous to his enemies) has been threatened, has had a car set on fire, and another set of tires destroyed. This was all related to the Zimmerman trial last year.

You ask why we all would prefer to remain anonymous? If you knew our names, would it make a difference? The article you are commenting on here is not just opinion. It is documented by tax returns and links to government web sites. The identity of the person writing the article has no bearing whatsoever on the facts presented.

As always, follow the money. It would be interesting to see what this group does with the money, and how much help they give versus donating to various political causes and lining their pockets.

Unfortunately, government today is viewed as a vehicle to make money. Trade donations for legislation that nets the donor(s) millions/billions. As for the price tag of the legislation, that´s what the taxpayer is for. If the legislation curtails freedoms, the legislators do not care. They have been well compensated.

Government is not suppose to work this way.

Btw, lots of ministries are quite liberal thinking the government should spend a bundle to help people. Alot of ministries are over the radio and over the internet, and extend beyond a church, and they do alot to help people in need and partner with other groups that provide the manpower.

Any group working with the Obama gang is likely either corrupt or a dupe, however.

Amnesty is the litmus test. Any politician who supports ANYTHING other than closing the southern border and commencing to deport 14 million illegal aliens is supporting amnesty. And anyone supporting amnesty should be targeted for defeat in their next election. No exceptions. No excuses. No second chances. No other issues.

Selling America into nonexistence for a price. Now we know why some of these groups support amnesty. They are making BIG money from it. Can´t sift through all the comments. Has anyone taken a close look at Perry´s list of contributors?

Rather they are investigative work of the most extensive nature, backed with links and documentation (much of it presented in pdf form so we can be lazy). They are exposes in the truest sense of the word. Sunlight on the most secretive, dangerous administration this country has ever had.

Thanks to Sundance and the rest of the Treepers for their dedication to the cause that we share...

Re #25, Sundance and other Treepers regularly turn up on the Comment threads at their website.

We have a president we know nothing about, yet we question someone who writes verifiable investigation and analysis under a pseudonym, which enables them to do that digging in reasonable safety.

I question the questioners motives. Are they idly curious? Are they just making mischief? Or does their questioning the writer´s identity cover their doing no reading nor having to formulate their own reasoned opinions on the subjects and data presented?

Where´s the Southern Baptist Convention on this issue? Why aren´t they distancing themselves from this? Haven´t heard a word out of them.

Having worked for a catholic hospital I understand that leaders of catholic healthcare are NOT priests nor or they nuns as they once were. They are MBA´s with degrees also in public health/accounting, etc. Catholic healthcare would not exist if it were not for Medicare (govt money). Same as for Baptist healthcare, Methodist healthcare, Presby healthcare.

What I find interesting is - in Oklahoma churches were told to "stand down" when they offered to help in Lawton.

Re #47,

BCFS is not listed as a partner of another state convention in Texas that also cooperates with the SBC -- the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention -- nor is BCFS related to children’s ministries in Maryland and Illinois with similar initials affiliated with their state conventions. (Snip)

The BCFS website, however, makes no reference to its former Baptist name and does not list the Texas convention among a number of partners, mostly federal agencies such as the U.S. Border Patrol.

#34, your statement about banks reminded of this one: If you owe the bank $100,000 and can´t pay, you´re in trouble; if you owe the bank $100 million and can´t pay, the bank´s in trouble.

#40, thank you to you, CT, and Sundance for bringing us information we haven´t seen elsewhere.

“Actress” Daniele Watts originally claimed the LA police targeted her because she was black and was kissing her white boyfriend. “Racists”. She later accused the police of targeting her as a prostitute because she was black.She and her publicist immediately scheduled the customary New York media tour. The goal of the tour was to fulfill the never ending thirst of the national media to promote stories around racism, sexism and the various “ism’s” the professional left loves to tout. Unfortunately between scheduling the tour and actually appearing on the daily talks, the truth came out.Apparently Ms. Watts and her boyfriend

The House Select Committee on Benghazi is set to hold its first public hearing this week on September 17th.However, a note of caution should be added not to expect too much “substance” as an outcome. As most readers are now aware the Benghazi FUBAR is essentially two-thirds a result of bad policy, and one-third a result of terrible decisions as a result of that bad policy. To date nothing has surfaced to undermine the essential research we have shared within the Benghazi Brief. Actually, to the contrary “The Brief” has withstood relentless scrutiny. Unfortunately that also means Trey Gowdy will

Editor’s note: On Friday, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson turned himself in on charges of child abuse, accused of injuring his four-year-old son as he whipped him with a small tree branch, commonly called a “switch.” Peterson acknowledged that he had spanked the boy because he had misbehaved, but said he did not intend to hurt the child. The case reminded She The People of this story from 1998 by Washington Post writer DeNeen L. Brown, which explores the debate around spanking, especially within the African American community.

Perhaps the best way to think of this is to use President Obama’s own words. It appears the “doctors, farmers, pharmacists and so forth” have struck up a truce with ISIS. That’s a problem, because Obama’s ISIS elimination plan requires the “doctors, farmers, pharmacists and so forth” to fight against ISIS on the ground while we shoot at ISIS from the sky. If the “doctors, farmers, pharmacists and so forth” don’t put the pointy end toward the Islamic State, oops, wait, sorry… the non-Islamic Islamic State (NI-ISIS) in Syria, then who will?

WASHINGTON -- Rep. Mark Sanford, R-S.C., announced Friday that he broke off his engagement to Argentine fiancee Maria Belen Chapur, saying on Facebook that he was forced to end the relationship because his ex-wife had filed a new legal complaint against him.The post came days after Sanford’s ex-wife, Jenny Sanford, lobbed a new round of legal troubles at the former governor. Her latest legal complaint, filed Aug. 28, demanded Sanford undergo anger management and sought to modify the couple’s existing custody arrangement. Sanford also said he had decided to hire a lawyer to defend him in the dispute.

This letter sent to the Saint Louis Dispatch by Benjamin Crump clearly showcases the growing sense of desperation. As with almost all things from the mind of the Crump it will also backfire. (Snip) Just because a judge blocks a media publication from seeing the official police and criminal justice system records does not mean the media, traditional or new, will be blocked from getting copies of incident reports, victim reports, police reports, and law enforcement engagement records. Like perhaps for instance, oh, I don’t know – what if Big Mike were involved in: four assault charges, three burglary charges, one

No one has considered Apple a serious data company, until now. For years, Apple has offered Internet services like email and online calendars. But Tuesday, with the introduction of health-monitoring technology and a new service that will allow people to buy things wirelessly with some Apple devices, the Cupertino, Calif., company positioned itself as a caretaker of valuable personal information, like credit card numbers and heart rates. (Snip)Against that background, Apple faces two threats to its new services: one from hackers always looking for clever ways to steal financial information, and another from regulators increasingly interested in ensuring that information gleaned

A U.S. Army officer from Rochester, Michigan, was denied entry into his daughter’s high school by four members of its security staff, told that his uniform might “offend” some students. “Before he was allowed in, the security guard stopped him and said sorry you’re not allowed in the school.

It really is quite amazing to watch how easily the people around Ferguson Missouri are manipulated by local members of the professional grievance community, and peer pressure. Dozens of residents proud to be arrested including some younger people. Yesterday they tried to block the Interstate (I-70) but were stopped by police and law enforcement. Of course the Saint Louis media is giddy with the confrontation(s) helping to sell newspapers and generate viewership. However, a review of the people at the center of the protests and you find they are almost the exact same people from the prior evening’s City Council Meeting

A former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Robert Mueller III, will lead a probe into the National Football League´s handling of former Baltimore Ravens player Ray Rice´s domestic violence case, the league said on Wednesday. The announcement comes within hours of a report by the Associated Press that a law enforcement official sent a video to the league in April that showed Rice knocking out his then-fiancee in an elevator. The official wanted the NFL to have the video before deciding how to punish Rice, the agency said, adding that the official spoke on condition of anonymity.

We will -- I wouldn´t be surprised if we have hearings,” she said in an interview with CBS’s “Face the Nation.” Baltimore Ravens star Ray Rice was fired from the team and suspended indefinitely by the league after a video surfaced showing Rice punching his then-fiancee Janay Palmer in the face in an

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

The Department of Labor coordinated with the White House on whether or not to release hidden portions of former Labor Secretary Hilda Solis’ schedule as Solis battled an FBI investigation into her illegal fundraising for President Obama. New emails provided to The Daily Caller from the nonprofit legal research firm Cause of Action show the White House thanking the Department of Labor for “flagging” a public information request for “withheld” portions of Solis’ schedule. The White House then asked for the name of the conservative group making the request — information that Labor officials were eager to give up. As TheDC previously

There’s a lot of competition for Barack Obama’s biggest lie. The man who could assure the American public with a straight face over thirty times that they could keep their doctor under his health plan, when he knew that to be completely false, is one hellluva fibber. But execrable as that serial prevarication may have been, it doesn’t hold a proverbial candle to his most recent whopper — that the Islamic State is not Islamic — not to mention its corollary, or perhaps subsidiary lie, that real religions do not indulge in murder. Islam has been doing that pretty much straight

Is a mutiny happening around President Obama? It appears possible that the president may not have made two of his most recent decisions with complete free will. The announcement that he would delay his immigration initiative until after the election and his formal announcement that the United States would take military action against the Islamic State could have been coerced. Maybe Democratic leaders in Congress and a few members of the Obama team have had it. Could it be that, after President Obama briefed Democrats in Congress on the immigration plan, they balked? Maybe the president was told that, if he
