The Obama Dallas Immigration Visit – Curious Case of Obama’s “Faith Leaders”
The Conservative Treehouse ^ | July 18, 2014

Posted on 07/20/2014 8:58:43 AM PDT by opentalk

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.

...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

... 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 appearance.

....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.

In the lower left of this image you see a man named Kevin Dinnin

from related article:

He’s the paid President and CEO of Baptist Child and Family Services Emergency Management Division (BCFS-EMD)

.. BCFS-EMD leadership and staff who pulled in, and paid  $33,000,000 in wages for 2012. Yes, that is THIRTY THREE MILLION.   In payroll.You see, BCFS is two entities.  You have BCFS and BCFS-EMD.BCFS Health and Human Services’ Emergency Management Division (BCFS EMD) is a non-profit partner of federal, state and local government and private industry. Our organization specializes in emergency management, incident management, disaster response, public health and medical emergency response, mass care, medical sheltering and planning for vulnerable populations.  

Call me crazy but I thought that’s what FEMA

...Baptist Child and Family Services, along with Baptist Child and Family Services-Emergency Management Division, are the recipients of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and the Dept. of Health and Human Services (HHS), grant money.

How much money you might ask?Well, lets just say a single grant this month was for $190,707,505.00  THAT’s a single grant

What? Did you expect something like truth out of Obama and his media?

Don’t ever make the mistake of believing them, they are truly masters of deceit, manipulation, and misinformation.

‘Bout the only compliment I can give them.

There is NO indication on the BCFS web sites that they have ever claimed to be associated with the Baptists.

The article is excellent.

Just a reminder to all that BCFS is just one huge NGO run by Obama’s buddies

To avoid my calling our President of The United States a liar,

What purpose does that serve?
Is he lying about this? Yes
Does he regularly lie about anything and everything? Yes
Then he is a liar.
Words matter. Use the correct ones.

Can’t Congress stop this? Are we really so helpless at stopping outright lawlessness and horrendous theft?

"$644,188,522.00 for unaccompanied minor children since the President’s 2012 Deferred action program began"

Why don't we call it the Great Taxpayer Robbery?

Looks like their faith is government graft and collusion.

Some non-profits are run by the biggest crooks in the community.

No wonder Governor Perry looked pi*sed in the photos

CEO And President of Baptist Child and Family services calls it his fastest growing division

From the Desk of Kevin C. Dinnin, President & CEO

...Today, BCFS leads health and human services programs on four continents and has offices from coast-to-coast. One of our fastestgrowing divisions operates the BCFS International Children’s Services program, which provides residential care and services for unaccompanied youth while authorities determine the appropriate steps toward reuniting them with their families or placing them in an alternate setting.

There is NO indication on the BCFS web sites that they have ever claimed to be associated with the Baptists.

You're partly right. It's true that a search of the entire site shows that "Baptist" is not mentioned.

Yet at one time the organization did have Baptist in it's name. Apparently there was a falling out and the word Baptist was removed from the name.

Based on what has been discovered, I think BCFS is ripe for investigation by the IRS. Won't happen of course.

IMHO, the head of any 501(c) non-profit should not get more than $200K in salary and bennies per year. If they think that's not enough to live on, go get a different job.

North Carolina Baptist Men, a genuine faith based relief agency, supported by the donations of NC Baptist churches, set up their field kitchens and fed 60,000 meals on the second day after hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey.

With a $190 million grant, they could probably take all 65,000 “unaccompanied children” back home to their parents in Central American and while there, get the families clean water, a vegetable garden and chickens & rabbits in the backyard.

Calling BCFS a “Baptist relief organization” is like calling Bill Clinton “a defender of women’s virtue”.

The “faith leaders” were thrown in only to add some kind of credibility to this invasion. It’s all bull****.

A FReeper posted the salaries of the *leadership* of BCFS...astonishing. They also found that several entities were being run out of their one San Antonio address. I wish someone (maybe Breitbart, GatewayPundit, etc.) would blow the lid off of this newly resurrected ACORN operation.

Maybe they will ;)

Thank-you for this clarification. I am really sore at the Catholic church right now and I have a bishop that celebrates the illegals in our diocese. I can’t stand to read the weekly Catholic paper because it is filled with “social justice” accomplishments.

Another good article..

“Unaccompanied Alien Children” Transfers To Your Community ? – UAC Research – Where Are The Illegal Aliens and “Unaccompanied Alien Minors” Being Placed ?

http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2014/07/20/unaccompanied-alien-children-transfers-to-your-community-uac-research-where-are-the-illegal-aliens-and-unaccompanied-alien-minors-being-placed/

We have also included the exact amount of the HHS grant for two reasons. Number one, so that you can see how much this is costing you, the taxpayer. However, there is a more valuable secondary reason. We have identified (through extensive research) that each UAC, each individual, is estimated/evaluated at a HHS cost level of around $40,000 per grant (give or take). So if you see a grant for $2,325,000 you can divide by $40k and find out that’s about 58 (people) UAC’s in that facility or process for the quarter (3 month period), or time they are being transitioned/processed in that facility or organization.

Well said. I gathered from what I could find (and it takes some darned hard searching to find anything) that BCFS had originated out of a faith based desire to provide for orphans. That dropped away once the government funds started flowing and they seem to have been taken over by what are community organizers.

I just note that a lot of the Baptist affiliated CFS groups are posting on their web sites that they have NO affiliation to this creepy group in Austin
