Immigration Poster Boy Jose Antonio Vargas: Soros & Unions Linked Yet Again?

In the constant PR battle from the Left on the immigration flood at the border, it seems that all events lead back to the same agitators. On the heels of last weekend’s protest, promoted and publicized by Soros sponsored groups and the Left’s favorite PR people at Fitzgibbon Media, we now have a new poster boy at the border, Jose Antonio Vargas.

Many people may already be familiar with Vargas and his “Documented” documentary shown recently on CNN, in which he comes out as being both gay and illegal. Quite a double whammy. Vargas, who has written for various outlets including the Huffington Post, presents himself as an example of the model citizen, dismissing the fact that he is still breaking the law and has apparently made no attempt to gain legal citizenship in all these years.

Vargas founded a group called “Define American”, working with other leftists and organizing watch parties for his “Documented” documentary with groups such as GLAAD, MomsRising, La Raza and others. Also working with him is the left leaning pastor/spouse couple, Rev. Eller and Rev. Laura Barclay of Highland Baptist Church in Louisville. The church was the site of the first screening and panel discussion of his documentary.

Soros Funded Pro-Immigrant Group to Target Waco

An email alert was sent out this afternoon from the Detention Watch Network. They plan a protest event tomorrow morning at the Jack Harwell Detention Center in Waco, Tx. According to them, this facility is just not quite good enough for the detaining of immigrants due to issues such as a lack of a legal library there, no on site medical facility, etc. However, previous complaints they have made to ICE were not given any validation:

“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is committed to providing all detainees in our custody with safe detention environments. The Jack Harwell Detention Center meets the applicable ICE detention standards and has successfully passed inspection reviews. Independent detention inspections are conducted by private contractors with extensive corrections experience to ensure quality assurance over the review process, consistency in the application of detention standards, and verification of corrective actions, if any. ICE is open to discussing any concerns with our partnering agencies regarding the detainees housed at their facilities.”

Their headline suggests that this is just the beginning of a highly orchestrated national effort:
Event is Part of Nationwide Actions to Stop the Immigrant Lock-up Quota and Immigrant Detention
This well financed email campaign was sent out from someone at Fitzgibbon Media, a progressive PR firm. Seems costly for another “grassroots” movement, but this is no low budget group. Sponsored by Soros’ Tides Foundation and sharing the same floor at a Washington DC office building with Jim Wallis’  Sojourners and Fund for the Republic (a Lawrence Lessig/Mark McKinnon related effort to get their campaign finance reform back in place), this movement comes from the same place as all the rest.

Radicals in Attendance at Obama's "Faith Leader" Meeting?

Originally published on PJ Media:

We have been told that Rick Perry was invited to attend Obama’s round table immigration meeting with a group of government officials and “faith leaders.” It was another of his behind-closed-doors meetings, so it is still unclear exactly who was in attendance. Photos cut off the table of participants so they are not all shown. One published list of participants is from Christian Post:
Those who attend the border crisis meeting at Love Field Airport in Dallas include: Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings; Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (R-Texas); Grand Prairie Mayor Ron Jensen; Chris Liebrum of the Baptist General Convention; Arne Nelson of Catholic Charities; Dallas County Commissioner Elba Garcia; Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins; Texas Health and Human Services Director Kyle Janek; Texas Public Safety Director Steven McCraw; and the director of Baptist Child and Family services who has contracted with the shelter at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio.
Yet two other reports indicate that people were there who were not on that list.
This report from the Statesman indicates that Valerie Jarrett joined Obama and Perry, and would be in attendance at the closed door meeting:
After deplaning at Love Field, according to the pool report, “Obama headed purposefully toward” the presidential limousine, “Perry followed behind, and the president pointed to the limousine, gesturing to the governor. Obama and Perry both hopped in the car, and Valerie Jarrett soon joined them.” The limo took them the short distance to the closed-door discussion on the border situation at DalFort Fueling, which is located at the airport.
This story from KDFW in Dallas indicates that others were included:
One of those local faith leaders is Frederick Haynes, who traveled to the border last weekend with Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins and state Senator Royce West.
Haynes says the meeting between President Obama and the pastor will focus on how to help the children.

“They are in need of safety; they are in need of hope and healing, and our country has a reputation of doing what is right by children, and we cannot, in the 21st century, turn our back on this legacy of providing havens for children,” said Haynes.

Haynes says he’s been hurt by the images from California of people blocking buses of children trying to get to temporary shelters.

“It breaks my heart because many of them will claim to love Jesus, but hate children,” said Haynes. “And I guess the irony of it is the Bible I read, Jesus speaks specifically of, you need to have a millstone tied around your neck and thrown into a sea if you offend these little ones.”

Gov. Perry was been asked by the White House to attend the meeting with faith leaders to discuss the border crisis.

“I hope Governor Perry will, instead of politicizing this and appealing to a certain segment of the population, I hope his heart as a parent will go out to children who are suffering and hurting,” said Haynes.
Their video features Pastor Frederick Haynes III again, expressing his concern about the Californians who “hate children.” It is clear that he was to participate in the round table discussion. At the end of the report, it is stated that the Whitehouse picked the pastors who would be in attendance.

What kind of faith leaders would the Whitehouse choose? Well, in the case of Pastor Frederick Haynes III, they would choose the most radical advisers available. Haynes, pastor of the Friendship West Baptist Church, was mentored by his dear friend, Rev. Jeremiah Wright. In fact, they are so close that it is thought Haynes missed an opportunity to head the NAACP due to his association with Wright. Haynes spoke at Wright’s retirement event and Wright spoke at Haynes’ church anniversary event. Haynes promotes the same Black Liberation Theology seen in Wright’s church.

In addition, Haynes is on the board of Al Sharpton’s National Action Network. Many in Obama’s administration attend these events, as Breitbart highlighted in 2012, including Attorney General Eric Holder, Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sabelius, and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. The Socialist Worker wrote glowingly about their “Reclaim the Dream” rally followed by their One Nation March, which was dwarfed by Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor event that year.
Toward the end of the four-hour program of speeches and entertainment, Rev. Frederick Haynes was able to put forward a grassroots activist strategy to the whole crowd.
“If you touch someone with your finger, you may not get their attention,” Haynes said. “But if you bring your fingers together and form a fist, you can strike a mighty blow. We are here today to strike a mighty blow. Because whenever this nation has made progress, we’ve brought our fingers together.”
Haynes is also the Chairman of the radical Samuel DeWitt Proctor Conference, where they take up issues such as revitalizing the reparations movement, ending “mass incarceration” and so much more. This coming Sunday, July 13th, will be their Day of Prayer and Protest against the Hobby Lobby ruling, with the usual “corporations are not people” argument, popularized by the fury over campaign finance reform.
Haynes has also worked well with former SDS member Jim Wallis, now of Sojourners. He was a speaker at Wallis’ 2009 “Mobilization to End Poverty” conference. This is what Haynes had to say at that event:
Wallis’ invited clergy at the Sojourners jamboree were enthusiastic to lead to the Promised Land — but first they must flee the Antichrist; and that Antichrist is conservative Christians. Dallas minister Frederick Haynes, who pastors a large black Baptist congregation, proclaimed to applause that if Jesus still walked the earth, “He’d be attending this conference, ’cause we’re dealing with His agenda. Others are making policies that contradict the policies of our Savior.” After covertly equating conservatives with the Antichrist, he likened those who opposed waterboarding terrorists to the biblical court prophet, Ebed-Melech. “My man, he has a government job with the king, and he stood against the policies of the king. There were foreign policies of a preemptive strike. [The king] put Jeremiah in a hole; a hole was their Guantanamo Bay. He [Jeremiah] is a victim of torture, but Ebed-Melech went to the king and implored the king to change his policy.”
In this analogy, al-Qaeda terrorists are the Prophet Jeremiah.
Pushing Sojourners to be more aggressive, Rev. Haynes urged Religious Left activists not to settle for table scraps but demand “justice.” After all, “Ebed-Melech does not ask the king can he have food rations; he didn’t get Jeremiah food when he was in the pit but he said, ‘No, I want Jeremiah out of the pit,’ and that’s the difference between justice and charity.”
Becoming more forthright, he condemned most of the nation’s recent history. “For 30 years at least,” Rev. Haynes preached, “this country has suffered from Reaganomics. Back in the ’80s there was a president, [the] reverse Robin Hood, Reagan, [who] robbed from the needy to give to the greedy. The poor have been demonized and vilified for the last 30 years.” The Great Satan not only demonized the poor but enslaved them. “Our responsibility is to go to the king and appeal to the king on behalf of those who are incarcerated by impoverishment.”
Haynes is part of the radical National Black United Front. He was an opening speaker and held the closing worship service for their July 2013 convention in Dallas.
From Wikipedia:
It has been described as Christian, Left-leaning, somewhat Black nationalist[4][5] and to work in the tradition of the Million Man March[6] and Malcolm X.[7] The organization had its 30th annual convention on July 16 to 19, 2009 in Chicago, Illinois.
Here is a little more about them from their 2009 Chicago conference:
CHICAGO ( – The National Black United Front held its 30th annual national convention here July 16-19 bringing together many key members of the Black nationalist movement to chart the future path of the organization.

Atty. Malik Zulu Shabazz, national chairman of the New Black Panther Party and director of Black Lawyers for Justice, traveled from Washington, D.C. to be a part of NBUF’s convention, and was given the honor of introducing the keynote speaker for the opening ceremony, the Hon. Minister Louis Farrakhan.
In a rousing introduction that brought the crowd to its feet, Atty. Shabazz reminded those in attendance that were it not for Minister Farrakhan’s courageous stand to prevent the name of the Hon. Elijah Muhammad from being trashed, then written out of history, and to rebuild the work of the Hon. Elijah Muhammad, there would be no Black consciousness movement.
“There would be no Malcolm X, there would be no Muhammad Ali, there would be no Black Panther Party, no Black consciousness movement of the ’60s, no Black Power anything without the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad. He’s the father of all that Black stuff!”
Min. Farrakhan spoke of the need for a Black united front, and said Black people in America are a “nation of people held hostage” and living in a time of great deceit, adding that he has never seen so many Black people hanging and waving American flags.

It would be interesting to know why Frederick Haynes III was left off published lists of attendees, as an invited Whitehouse guest. If this is the type of advice they are seeking in solving the border crisis, it is a bigger crisis than we even imagined.

United We Dream aka SEIU & Teamsters Occupy Washington

The group is pushing for the Obama administration to expand a 2012 program that allows some children brought to the country illegally to be deprioritized for deportation. The group wants the program to include the family members of those children as well.
In other words, amnesty. In other words, no enforcement, and in fact, a reward for a lawless and orchestrated invasion of our borders.
Today’s planned “occupying” of the House office buildings is just more of the same. Conducted by the group “United We Dream”, a quick check links them right back to the usual sources. The United We Dream website locates their offices at 1900 L St. NW Suite 900
Washington, DC 20036. No coincidence, this is the very same address, even specific to the suite number, of the CtW Investment Group. CtW stands for Change to Win, and this is the group that handles their money:

Founded in February 2006, the CtW Investment Group works with pension funds sponsored by unions affiliated with Change to Win, a federation of unions representing nearly 5.5 million members, to enhance long-term shareholder returns through active ownership.

Jim Wallis: Immigration Theocrat?

In a recent May 29th article from Christian Post, Jim Wallis of Sojourners, Obama adviser and member of the Soros funded Evangelical Immigration Table (EIT), is pushing John Boehner on swift immigration legislation. The method he is using to “persuade” Boehner seems quite theocratic:
“The faith community is going to be watching John Boehner very carefully, of whether he will make a moral decision here. The Catholic Church is completely clear about this. He is a Catholic, and his bishops have been clear, the pope has been clear – it’s time for John Boehner to make the right moral choice. It’s time for John Boehner to listen to and obey his own Catholic Church.”
Well, Wallis would be very familiar with what a segment of the Catholic Church is doing, since he works so closely with them:
 Founded in 2004 as a “communications and organizing resource center dedicated to helping faith leaders reclaim the values debate in America for justice, compassion, and the common good, ” Faithful America was really created to help Perriello convince voters—including pro-life voters—to move beyond what he called “divisive abortion rhetoric.”  It is important to note that nearly all of the Soros-supported progressive faith-based organizations are founded to reclaim the “common good.”  And, for left-wing Catholic groups, a commitment to the common good always includes access to abortion rights.

In 2009 the two organizations teamed up with Sojourners, Jim Wallis’ social justice organization, and PICO National Network, the USCCB-funded community organizing initiative, to create a “toolkit” on the health care reform debate.  The toolkit reassured readers that conscience protections would remain in place—even though no such assurance was offered in any of the versions of the reform.  Such protections were never intended to be in place.

SEIU’s ‘Occupy’ Fast Food

Global efforts continue by SEIU to convince everyone they should be able to raise a family on McDonald’s entry level wages. Hoping for a global minimum wage revolt, instigating by organizers has taken place all over the globe: In Europe, Lorenz Keller, who works for the Swiss trade union Unia, said that members from his group were protesting outside several McDonald’s branches in Zurich and would soon start actions in Geneva. Banner-waving activists in New Zealand were the first to hit the streets Thursday, as they protested outside a McDonald’s in Auckland. In the Philippines,young protesters held a singing and dancing flash mob inside a McDonald’s on Manila’s Quezon Avenue during the morning rush-hour. In Japan, where protests were planned in 30 cities, co-organizer Manabu Natori failed to find a Ronald costume in time, but was encouraged by the public response to a protest for a higher minimum wage, held outside a downtown Tokyo McDonald’s. The use of Occupy style techniques are no coincidence: One U.S. Chamber of Commerce official says the protest is a sham. “These union-produced, made-for-media protests have repeatedly failed to gain support from more than a handful of actual workers,” said vice president Glenn Spencer, in a statement. For workers and organizers of the strike, the media attention on a global basis is huge. “The Occupy Movement is not dead,” says Witold Henisz, management professor at The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. “I’m forecasting a period of tension and political activism over what’s fair and what’s right.” Read it all here.

Social Justice Evangelicals' Partisan Path to Immigration

The latest effort is a new “movement”, the Imago Dei Campaign, launched last month by leaders including Samuel Rodriguez (EIT and NHCLC), Roma Downey and Mark Burnet, James Robison and Jim Daly. It is promoted on the NHCLC site. The Imago Dei (latin for “image of God”) website declares, “For the image of God exists in all human beings: black and white; rich and poor; straight and gay; conservative and liberal; victim and perpetrator; citizen and undocumented; believer and unbeliever.” It offers a pathway for dialogue and persuasion: If gay people are to be afforded dignity as those made in the image of God, what does this require of our rhetoric? What does it require of our laws?”
