And you all thought the Catholic Church was about saving souls for Jesus! Heck no, it’s all about money for the church!
The Obama administration was bankrolling America’s churches as far back as 2010 in preparation for the November 2014 invasion of American sovereignty.
Some of Barack Obama’s most passionate Marxist minions come arrayed in priestly robes rather than business suits.
Their benign-sounding, if not downright boring name “the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) Committee on Migration” helps hide them from the spotlight of controversy.
Everyone should be aware that being far more immersed in politics than prayer, the USCCB Committee on Migration have long been waving the cheerleaders’ pom pom for President Barack Obama’s Executive Amnesty fiat.
Piety makes a perfect hide-y-hole for propaganda.
Claiming the same kind of altruism-laced brotherly love as Obama—who is eclipsing American sovereignty based on the propaganda that he’s reuniting families and vulnerable children—USCCB is the first religious organization to unabashedly lead the Amnesty cheering section.
“We have a long history of welcoming and aiding the poor, the outcast, the immigrant, and the disadvantaged,” said Bishop Eusebio Elizondo, M.Sp.S., auxiliary bishop of Seattle and chairman of the USCCB Committee on Migration. “Each day, the Catholic Church in the United States, in her social service agencies, hospitals, schools, and parishes, witnesses the human consequences of the separation of families, when parents are deported from their children or spouses from each other. We’ve been on record asking the Administration to do everything within its legitimate authority to bring relief and justice to our immigrant brothers and sisters. As pastors, we welcome any efforts within these limits that protect individuals and protect and reunite families and vulnerable children.” (USCCB.org, Nov. 20, 2014)
“Bishop Elizondo added, “I strongly urge Congress and the President to work together to enact permanent reforms to the nation’s immigration system for the best interests of the nation and the migrants who seek refuge here. We will continue to work with both parties to enact legislation that welcomes and protects immigrants and promotes a just and fair immigration policy.”
“Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz, archbishop of Louisville, Kentucky, and president of the USCCB said, “There is an urgent pastoral need for a more humane view of immigrants and a legal process that respects each person’s dignity, protects human rights, and upholds the rule of law. As our Holy Father, Pope Francis, said so eloquently: ‘Every human being is a child of God! He or she bears the image of Christ! We ourselves need to see, and then to enable others to see, that migrants and refugees do not only represent a problem to be solved, but are brothers and sisters to be welcomed, respected, and loved.’”
USCCB wasn’t long after the Obama immigration reform announcement to go for gold in the Sunday collection box.
The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD), collection is due to be taken up in diocesan parishes across the U.S. this weekend. CCHD has invested over $4 million in 2014 in immigrant communities across the United States. (USCCB.org)
The job of all bishops, who now form the in-action propaganda wing of Obama Executive Amnesty, is to save souls.
Money, not misplaced altruism, has been a chief motivator for churches to harbor thousands of illegal aliens. The Obama administration was bankrolling America’s churches as far back as 2010 in preparation for the November 2014 invasion of American sovereignty.
This is how church coffers were being filled when no one knew what to do about tens of thousands of unaccompanied alien children crossing the southern border last summer:
“In the case of the Catholic Charities Diocese of Galveston, $15,549,078 in federal grants from Health and Human Services for “Unaccompanied Alien Children Project” with a program description of “Refugee and Entry Assistance”. (Eric Odom, Liberty News July 10, 2014)
“Last year, the Catholic Charities Diocese of Fort Worth received $350,000 from Department of Homeland Security for “citizenship and education training” with a program description of “citizenship and immigration services.”
Between September 2010 and September 2013, the Catholic Charities of Dallas received $823,658 from the Department of Homeland Security for “Citizenship Education Training” for “refugee and entrant assistance.”
It is no coincidence that the vice president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is his Eminence Cardinal Daniel N. DiNardo, Archbishop of Galveston-Houston and that the Conference Treasurer is the Most Reverend Kevin J. Farrell, Bishop of Dallas.
Nor do protestants get a free ride in the bankrolled by Obama category with the Baptists taking government grants:From Dec 2012 to January 2014, Baptist Child & Family Services received $62,111,126 in federal grants from Health & Human Services for “Unaccompanied Alien Children Program”. (Liberty News)
In coming to Obama’s aid in erasing forever America’s 238-year-old borders, the bishops sold the USA out, including its Catholics, for the proverbial 30 pieces of silver.
Indeed Obama’s biggest boost to power came courtesy of the Catholic Church.
The Catholic compliance that propelled Obama from the streets as a malcontent community organizer to the Oval office begins and continues with the Catholic Church.
No one has documented the trail more effectively than spunky Michael Voris, ofChurchMilitant.TV.
Who ever would have thought that the road to America’s destruction would be made a grim possibility through a host of Catholic priests and bishops?
It’s a story that should make you shudder because it’s how Barack Obama captured America like the proverbial fox in the henhouse.
Long in the telling, and made obscure through the passing of time, it should not only be dragged out of mothballs, but shouted from the rooftops:
“In the 1930s, Alinsky met the Meegan brothers, Joseph and Peter. Joseph introduced him to the Chicago Bishops and to his brother, Fr. Peter Meegan, who in turn introduced Saul to Aux. Bishop Bernard Sheil. Meegan and Sheil introduced Alinsky to the inner workings of the Catholic Church.” (Colorado Coalition for Life/Michael Voris, Feb. 18, 2012). “During this time, Saul organized his first community project called the “Back of the Yards Neighborhood Council”. At this point, Alinsky pulled off his greatest coup and garnered the Bishops’ public seal of approval. He convinced Aux. Bishop Sheil to join John L. Lewis, the head of the CIO (eventually known as the AFLCIO), on stage. At that moment the Catholic Church and the labor unions entered into an unholy partnership.
“Msgr. Jack Egan teamed up with Alinsky, and in time, Egan was affectionately known by the Chicago press as “Alinsky’s priest intern”. Egan promoted Alinsky so well that he was more popular among Catholics than the bishops. Through the ‘40s, ‘50s, and ‘60s, Egan and Alinsky developed a well oiled network of priests and bishops throughout the United States. In 1968, newly appointed Cardinal Cody realized that what Msgr. Egan was doing was not in line with Catholic doctrine and closed his office.
“Fr. Ted Hesburgh invited Msgr. Egan to Notre Dame for a sabbatical. He remained at Notre Dame for the next 14 years where he continued to develop his priest’s network. Egan periodically brought priests to the Catholic Mecca for conferences under the liberal eye of Hesburgh. Egan was now in mainstream Catholic life.
During Egan’s time at Notre Dame in the late ‘60s, race riots broke out around the country. A document called Black Manifesto was published which called for reparations for African Americans. The Catholic Church chose Msgr. Jack Egan and his network of priests to come up with plans to alleviate poverty. All of Egan’s priests, save one, were personally trained by Saul Alinsky in the tactics laid out in his book, Reveille for Radicals. This opportunity allowed Egan’s network of priests to implement Saul Alinsky’s radical community organizing tactics of gaining power and strength from the people and using it to empower and enlarge government.
“In a few months, the network created the “National Crusade Against Poverty” (NCAP) and committed to raise 50 million dollars over several years. The campaign should have raised the money and dissolved. It did not, and in fact, it is still in existence today under the name of the “Catholic Campaign for Human Development”. The CCHD has raised over $289,000,000 in 40 years, and by donating to the radical left, they have gained immense power in the abortion and homosexual communities.”
Anyone reading this who doesn’t feel a shiver down the spine when recalling that Obama successfully had authorities at Georgetown cover all religious symbols when he made his 2009 commencement speech there, isn’t awake.
“He was there to pay tribute to his mentors in community organizing. To pay tribute to those who helped put him in office. In his speech he mentioned his high regard for Cardinal Bernardin, who spoke at one of the first organizing meetings he ever attended.” (Michael Voris).
This is the real, little known trajectory Obama took into the Oval Office.
After four years living in New York City, Obama moved to Chicago to work as a community organizer. He worked for three years from June 1985 to May 1988 as director of the Developing Communities Project (DCP), a church-based community organization originally comprising eight Catholic parishes in Greater Roseland (Roseland, West Pullman, and Riverdale) on Chicago’s far South Side. During his three years as the DCP’s director, its staff grew from 1 to 13 and its annual budget grew from $70,000 to $400,000, with accomplishments including helping set up a job training program, a college preparatory tutoring program, and a tenants’ rights organization in Altgeld Gardens. Obama also worked as a consultant and instructor for the Gamaliel Foundation, a community organizing institute. (Wikipedia)
For America and the Free West, the rest, as they say, is history.

Big data could be a big problem for workplace discrimination law
Staff recruitment and retention are an ongoing challenge for employers. Proponents of big data in the workplace are now claiming they can change that.
We’re entering a new age of predictive selection that is producing very surprising results. However, these new forms of decision-making and the results they produce could challenge the very basis of our anti-discrimination and privacy laws.
So what’s new?
At some point, we’ve all had to apply for a job. We complete an application, with a few positive embellishments here and there. We then submit it. And, fingers crossed, we get an interview.
We then get checked out to see if we’re a good fit. If we are, we get the job. It’s a simple and time-honoured practice.
We have a good idea why we got the job. We went to the “right” university. We got a good GPA. We demonstrated we could be a safe pair of hands.
We also know that our employer would not make a decision to hire us based on our race, gender or sexual preference. That’s against the law.
So what if we didn’t get selected on our GPA? Or because of the “right” university we went to? What if we didn’t even get selected on the basis of our job application? What if the deciding factor for our selection was not our application, but the browser we used to upload our application?
Welcome to the potentially confounding new world of big data in the workplace. It’s a world that turns upside down the traditional process of staff selection, one in which algorithmically, data-driven decisions are the norm. This is a world that demands the collection of more and more types of information, including the metadata from our working activities, our social media content and anything else that might be remotely relevant (or even irrelevant for that matter).
None of this is entirely new. Michael Lewis’s book Moneyball demonstrated the value of Billy Beane’s data-driven quest and its dramatic effect on the baseball team he was managing.

What Happened to American Medicine?
America once had the best healthcare system around, but no longer. We still have the best doctors and nurses, but they are stymied and frustrated by a system that hampers rather than helps them when they try to care for us. Why?
Healthcare developed cancer, and the cancer devoured what American medicine needs: Fiduciary Service Partnership.
Fiduciary means that someone, like a patient, gives his freedom to act to another person, viz., a doctor, to be used for the benefit of the patient. If you need chemotherapy, you are asking the oncologist to poison you, please! When you ask the surgeon to operate, you literally give him or her control over your body and your future. What you are asking would be called attempted murder if done by someone other than the doctor!
Over the ages, there have been various formal codes of ethics for doctors, but they all say the same thing. We healers will use the power the patient gives us for the patient’s welfare, not our own. The fiduciary “bottom line” in healthcare is patient welfare.
Service also seems to be vanishing. Service literally means helping or doing work for another. A doctor serves a patient, though not as servant. Service is an act of free will involving commercial exchange. The doctor voluntarily provides his/her professional services to a patient in exchange for the patient’s money.
If health care – personal service given by one individual to another – were declared a basic human right, would that not mean that a patient could demand his “right” and the doctor could not refuse? Would not such a right then take away the doctor’s freedom?
Someone entitled cannot be a partner
If you are entitled to something, someone else is responsible to provide it. If you are entitled to health care, then someone else is responsible for your health, not you. The one who is responsible is the one who is in control.
Who told you that you were entitled? Answer: the federal government. For decades, we have been living in a “Father Knows Best” society. You know who Father is. He promises to take care of you. He will give you everything “you deserve.” (Of course, Father decides what you deserve, not you.) Father promises to provide everything, including free health care. You need not be responsible. Father will be. After all, “you are entitled.”
Entitlement and dependency are antonyms for personal responsibility and independence, aka freedom.
Good health involves a partnership between patient and provider. Neither is entitled — each is responsible. Partnership is a two-way street with both partners being active. Good health is not “delivered.” Patient and doctor must collaborate as partners to achieve it.
How did we lose Fiduciary, Service, and Partnership?
We lost Fiduciary, Service, and Partnership for three reasons.
Third-party payment system
Third party payer systems destroy the connection between buyer and seller that is necessary to have a free market.
In every market except healthcare, the one who buys is the one who pays. In healthcare, a third party pays, not the patient though the patient consumes. The doctor is a seller who cannot set his or her price. The third party, aka government, does that. The free market connections between buyer (patient) and seller (provider) are disrupted by the third-party payer system.
In a controlled (non-free) market, the buyer has no incentive to economize. The payer has no incentive to pay for medical care. In fact, payers have a powerful incentive to delay, defer, or deny our medical care — that is how they make money (private insurance) or “cut costs” (government).

Top 10 Lies from Obama’s Nullification Speech
“The one [a president] can confer no privileges whatever; the other [the king] can make denizens of aliens, noblemen of commoners; can erect corporations with all the rights incident to corporate bodies.” – Alexander Hamilton in Federalist 69
Lie #1: Every President has Taken Executive Action on Immigration: No other president has ever issued an amnesty of anywhere near this scope, created it out of thin air, or built it upon a prior executive action instead of a statute. And in the case of President Eisenhower, his executive action was to deport 80,000 illegal immigrants.
Lie #2: Illegal Immigrant Crossings are Down: Actually, this is the third straight year that border crossings have gone up, not to mention the entirely new wave from Central America.
Lie #3: It does not grant citizenship or the right to stay here permanently: Under the royal edict, the work permits can be renewed every three years, and most likely, they will be renewed at the same 99.5% acceptance rate as DACA applications. And once they get Social Security cards, they are going nowhere. So yes, this is permanent. And yes, they will be able to get green cards, which puts them on an automatic path to citizenship: “we are reducing the time that families are separated while obtaining their green cards. Undocumented immigrants who are immediate relatives of lawful permanent residents or sons or daughters of US citizens can apply to get a waiver if a visa is available.”

Never has an American president been more contemptuous of the United States or acted in a manner that has revealed itself to be a clear and present danger to America’s very survival.
