About those faith-based leaders that Barack Obama met with last week in Dallas, Texas less than 300 miles away from the U.S.-Mexico border. Faith-based leaders they are not.
According to Conservative Treehouse, the only thing faith-based is the mention in the title of these organizations. Like ACORN, they are “taxpayer funded corporations who exist almost exclusively on government grants.”
In addition to Rick Perry and Obama attending, in attendance were:
Chris Liebrum, who leads the Baptist General Convention of Texas’;
Kevin Dinnin, president of Baptist Child & Family Services.BCFS is the organization that backtracked on the $50 millon contract with the Palm Aire Hotel & Resort to house illegal alien children last week. (See my earlier posts,Obama to Spend Millions $$$$ on Transformation of Texas Luxury Hotel & Resort for Illegal Alien Children (REVISED) and Charity Backs off $50 Million Plan to House Illegal Alien Children in Luxury Hotel Resort.)
Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, D-Dallas, Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins and Arne Nelson, president of Catholic Charities of Dallas.
… 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….
This year alone, BCFS has received approximately $270 million (see screenshot below) in federal award grants from the Office of Refugee Resettlement. Yeah, I never heard of that agency either. H/t Refugee Settlement Watch.
