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.

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.

I don’t think any single story has the potential to reveal so much about what is wrong, fundamentally wrong, with political correctness and law enforcement. The scope of avoidance is so unbelievable it’s taking hours of assembly and reconfiguration just to comprehend. And let me be absolutely clear the timeline where the broadcasted BOLO’s were needed is 2009 to 2014. Between 2002 and 2009 there was MORE than enough connective information and factual forensic evidence to know there was a serial rapist/abductor around VA college campuses. Hundreds of rapes, and sexual assaults (2002-2014); dozens of abductions and murders, all kept

A former North Korean counter-intelligence officer has claimed that Kim Jong-Un is no longer in control of the nation and is now just a ´puppet leader´. Jang Jin-sung, who used to be an influential officer in Kim Jong-il´s propaganda division, made the sensational assertion at a September conference in Holland attended by several elite exiles, it´s been reported. The capital, Pyongyang, meanwhile, has been placed into lockdown with even the elite banned from entering or leaving, according to a respected news site. This adds weight to Jin-sung´s claim, as a North Korean expert said that this kind of measure is only put

Insider: The next 72 hours (up to 10 days) “could” reveal rather astounding connections and revelations about serial rapist and murderer Jesse Matthew. His activities have been confirmed to be far larger than even our initial predictions. The “could” aspect relates to a profoundly unfortunate -AND SEVERE- political element (consideration and risk attached to the case) being discussed behind closed doors. Jesse “LJ” Matthew is connected to rapes and abductions going back to his teen years. Some already released details in public media reports HERE and another HERE bring his victim count to SIX.

Fighters from the Islamic State extremist group have used a rocket launcher to shoot down an Iraqi military helicopter, say officials. The pilot and co-pilot of the Mi-35 aircraft were reportedly killed in the attack which happened between the towns of Beiji and al Senniyah in northern Iraq. The shooting down of the helicopter showed the insurgents´ ability to hit back against air operations by Iraqi authorities and the US-led coalition. The IS jihadists have taken over large parts of western and northern Iraq in recent months after government forces melted away in the onslaught and left behind US-made military

Updated, 9:03 p.m. | A cyberattack this summer on JPMorgan Chase compromised the accounts of 76 million households and seven million small businesses, a tally that dwarfs previous estimates by the bank and puts the intrusion among the largest ever. The details of the breach — disclosed in a securities filing on Thursday — emerge at a time when consumer confidence in the digital operations of corporate America has already been shaken. Target, Home Depot and a number of other retailers have sustained major data breaches. Last year, the information of 40 million cardholders and 70 million others were compromised at

A federal bankruptcy judge on Wednesday upended the widely held belief that public workers’ pensions have a special status in California that makes them impossible to cut, further chipping away at the idea that pensions are sacrosanct in a municipal bankruptcy. (Snip) While Detroit’s pension system was a struggling local entity with few friends in the state capital, Calpers is a powerful arm of the state, with statutory powers that include liens allowing it to foreclose on the assets of a city that fails to pay its pension bills.

Liberian officials said the U.S. case was inevitable and unsurprising. “It means the entire world is not safe,” said Liberian assistant health minister Tolbert Nyenswah in an interview on Wednesday. “It means we should all be making frantic efforts to stop Ebola in West Africa,” he said. Mr. Nyenswah and other Liberians are hoping that the U.S. case will help to mobilize more global resources to fight Ebola in West Africa, where the epidemic originated earlier this year. “It’s a clear indication that Ebola has no boundary,” said Thomas Siakor, a 32-year-old university student and bread vendor in Monrovia. “It can kill

President Obama shared an elevator earlier this month with an armed security contractor who had been arrested before for assault and battery, in the latest report of a serious violation of Secret Service security protocols. (Snip)The Secret Service then ran a criminal check on the man, and discovered his criminal history. A Secret Service official confirmed the incident to the Associated Press but declined to comment further, citing an ongoing investigation of the event. Despite initial reports that the man had been convicted for assault and battery, a Secret Service official later told Fox News that he was not prosecuted.

Joe Clancy, the man in charge of cleaning up the Secret Service after a series of embarrassing security gaffes, is the ideal person to lead the agency through troubled waters, a former top Obama adviser said Wednesday. The Department of Homeland Security named Clancy, director of corporate security for Comcast Corp., as interim acting director of the Secret Service after Julia Pierson resigned Wednesday. He retired from the agency in July 2011 after having served as special agent in charge of the Presidential Protective Division, a role for which he was well-regarded, David Axelrod, one of Obama´s oldest friends and

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It
