I have to admit that whenever I have heard names like “Catholic Charities”, “Baptist General Convention” and “Baptist Child and Family services, I thought it was the government spreading some cash around to Catholic and Baptist organizations in an attempt to co-op them down the road through dependence upon the federal spigot. Boy, was I lied to. It turns out that it is all just another 1984 manipulation of America.
A listener, or a media person writing in general terms about what they just witnessed would probably write an article like this, or perhaps like this. Essentially giving you an impression similar to what you would believe having just watched the speech.
The impression intended would be that President Obama just met with a bunch of religious organizational heads, perhaps priests, pastors and ministers. Along with “faith based” advocates who are helping to deal with the immediate needs of the illegal aliens, unaccompanied minors, and the larger “border crisis”.
You would be wrong.
To avoid my calling our President of The United States a liar, I will instead say President Obama is being intentionally obtuse, perhaps even deceitful. Here’s why.
I’ll use a faith based media source to highlight the deception:
So that’s who President Obama calls “faith leaders“. But there’s a problem, none of them are religion based organizations. None of them have churches. None of them have congregations or parishioners’.
They are the heads of government funded non-profits. Remember ACORN? Same/Same.
They are taxpayer funded corporations who exist almost exclusively on government grants. Despite the words “Baptist” and “Catholic”, these are NOT religious “faith based” groups. The name Baptist and Catholic is only to give the appearance of “religion” and add a dose of “charity” to the appearances.
We recently stumbled upon Mr. Kevin Dinnin when we were looking around for the primary recipients’ of HHS Grants and we came upon the 2012 tax filings of BCFS, or more accurately BCFS EMD where Kevin Dinnin is the principal officer and CEO. Paid at an annual salary of $477,799+
This one group alone makes ACORN seem small ball in comparison.
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.
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:
Border problems just become another means of increasing the tax burden to wear down the producers of the country, enrich those who are in on the game and bypass any sense of Christian charity in exchange for promoting the “hireling” mentality throughout the nation; while all the time mocking the American people who have no one in congress who will stand up to these people because the “game” has the total backing of a lying “1984” press corps.
Just like Common Core it is difficult to stand for righteousness and self reliance in education when the big money starts getting tossed around. All of these children will become wards of the state, placed in homes of like minded liberals who will be rewarded with substantial cash for exhibiting the Christian character of caring for these kids crossing the border.
The test would be would they do it if the money wasn’t being thrown at them?
