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.

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.

As Obamacare Pays Medical Bills,
Red States Pressured On Medicaid

Posted By: earlybird- 9/28/2014 11:36:32 AM     Post Reply
A new report showing the continued pileup of unpaid medical bills in states that didn’t expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act is escalating criticism on these Republican-led areas of the country to expand the health insurance program for the poor. The report out last week from the Obama administration shows the costs of uncompensated care are projected to fall by $5.7 billion this year largely because millions of Americans are eligible for expanded Medicaid insurance for the poor under the Affordable Care Act and they are taking advantage. About half of U.S. states opted in favor of expanding Medicaid which

Just like the fictional Unaccompanied Alien Children ruse the White House created to sell a comprehensive immigration reform strategy, so too is the Khorosan group a purely fictional political construct designed to avoid ideological embarrassment. Andrew McCarthy exposes the same fraud we have continued to share. In a recent column for NRO McCarthy explains how the White House had come up with the “Khorosan” al-Qaeda group as nothing more than a political ploy to avoid being ridiculed for their inept and detached prior espousals. After the McCarthy article we’ll show you the timeframe when the Denis McDonough ruse

This Kmart store was looted during the August riots. This is a typical consequence by corporate businesses as they view “high risk” neighborhoods and communities. The operational risks, crime, lawsuits, et al, are too high to remain in business – and the actuaries recommend closure.In addition Gateway Pundit shares - On Wednesday, Missouri State Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson told reporters the QuikTrip convenience store that burned down would rebuild in Ferguson.

A fire at an FAA radar center in Aurora that grounded hundreds of flights in Chicago and across the country was deliberately set but "is no terrorist act," police said this morning. "There is no terrorist act," said Aurora police Chief Greg Thomas. "This is a local issue with a contract employee and nothing else." The employee was found in the basement of the radar facility suffering from self-inflicted wounds, police said. He was taken to a hospital and the radar center was shut down and evacuated.That prompted a groundstop order that halted all flights in and out of O´Hare and Midway airports.

Las Vegas schools are considering plans to teach children as young as 5 about masturbation and homosexuality. Clark County School District proposed the changes during closed-door meetings with community members last week, EAG News reported. Among the changes include education of homosexuality as early as age 5 and giving everyone “respect regardless of who they are attracted to,” the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported. Students of that age would also be taught that “touching and rubbing one’s genitals to feel good is called masturbation,” the newspaper said. Parents who weren’t invited to the previous meeting showed up Monday to express their anger. “I felt (the

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

The man who jumped the White House fence this month and sprinted through the front door made it much farther into the building than previously known, overpowering one Secret Service officer and running through much of the main floor, according to three people familiar with the incident. An alarm box near the front entrance of the White House designed to alert guards to an intruder had been muted at what officers believed was a request of the usher’s office, said a Secret Service official who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

The L.A. Times is warning that the “worst is yet to come” if a grand jury fails to indict white officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing black 18-year-old Michael Brown. If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The Secret Service was unaware for four days that a man had fired a high-powered rifle at the White House in 2011 in a ´fumbled´ response that left the Obamas furious, says a new report. Officers allegedly performed a string of security lapses after Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez shot at least seven bullets at the executive mansion in Washington from his car. At the time, President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and their older daughter Malia were not at home, but their younger daughter Sasha and Mrs Obama´s mother, Marian Robinson, were inside.

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and b***h about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington. If you’re in Mississippi, you can stay mad at Thad and allow Travis “no repeal” Childers to win. That’ll show those RINOs! It
