Why is Catholic Relief Services promoting Mama Sarah's Obama Foundation?

In light of what Walid and Theodore Shoebat discovered about the Mama Sarah Obama Children Foundation, it was indeed shocking to see a glowing article about the Foundation on the Catholic Relief Services (CRS) website. In fact, the article - written by Debbie DeVoe - is featured prominently on the "CRS in Kenya" page (Click image to enlarge).

According to Musa Ismail Obama - Barack's cousin - the Mama Sarah Obama Foundation receives 90% of its funds from non-Muslim western countries and uses those funds to send Kenyans to Saudi Arabia to study in Wahhabist schools. The following three screen shots are taken from an interview given to Al-Jazeera by Barack's cousin, Musa. Note the subtitles in this video.

So, according to Barack's first cousin, who himself went to Saudi Arabia and memorized the Qur'an, funds from his own grandmother's foundation go toward converting Kenyans to a virulently radical strain of Wahhabist Islam. Again, why is an article promoting that foundation featured prominently on the Catholic Relief Services website? Here are some excerpts from DeVoe's piece:
Ever since Mama Sarah married President Obama's Kenyan grandfather, she's been helping kids in need. Over the last 40 years, dozens of children have lived in her home, and hundreds of others have received help through the Mama Sarah Obama Children's Foundation. The majority have lost one or both parents to HIV or are living in dire poverty. Mama Sarah focuses on 2 key things: making sure the children have enough to eat and helping them get an education.
Based on the claims of Musa, should we not ask what kind of education these children are receiving? How many are issued scholarships to learn in Saudi Arabia? Are there any donations to CRS that are directed to these scholarships? Has anyone decided to donate to Mama Sarah's foundation as a result of the article posted to the CRS website, thinking those donations were going toward humanitarian aid when they were actually going to the radical Islamization of Kenyan students?

Are Catholic dollars going toward the conversions of Kenyan children to Islam?

Is CRS aware of this side of Mama Sarah's foundation?

I contacted CRS and asked to what extent the group supported the Mama Sarah Obama Children Foundation. I was told I would be contacted after they researched the matter. As of now, I have not heard back. This post will be updated if and when I do.

Devoe then invokes a name very familiar to westerners - Bill Gates. His foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has been funding a project called the Great Lakes Cassava Initiative, which is intended to help farmers rescue and grow Cassava, an important source of food in Kenya. When CRS visited Kogelo (Mama Sarah's village), the village was found to have a great cassava deficiency.
"I wish [people] could bring more support so I can help more orphans so they can learn," Mama Sarah says. Since her grandson became president, visits to the Obama homestead have increased. Appointments must now be made in advance. A guard stands sentry at the front gate, having visitors sign a guestbook and keeping them from entering the compound before Mama Sarah is ready to welcome them.

CRS staff first visited the compound back in July 2008 when doing a general assessment for the Great Lakes Cassava Initiative. Mama Sarah's was one of many households interviewed to find out if any cassava was still growing in the area after disease nearly destroyed the crop in the 1980s. The survey found almost no cassava plants left, making Kogelo an ideal location for the program, which uses funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to grow and distribute disease-resistant cassava plants.
Does Bill Gates know what Musa Ismail Obama has said about the Wahhabist scholarships funded by Mama Sarah's foundation? If not, wouldn't he want to know if any of his funds allocated for growing cassava went toward any of those scholarships?

Soon after 2012 was ushered in, the Barack Obama administration was at war with Catholic bishops who vehemently objected to the notion that they be forced to offer a healthcare mandate that required Catholic employers to provide contraception and abortifacients.

Perhaps a few Catholic bishops should look into the Mama Sarah Obama Children Foundation.

Aligning with a foundation that seeks to turn Kenyan children into Wahhabist Muslims instead of Christians would likely be something the Catholic church would not want to be associated with.

Video: Debbie Wasserman Schultz has a go at the Eric Holder strategy

In this exchange between DNC Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Piers Morgan, the CNN host rightfully asks her about the narrative coming out of the Obama administration that the anti-Muhammad video was responsible for the Benghazi attacks. When Morgan tells Schultz that the information "was wrong", Schultz responds with, "well that doesn't mean it was false."

At that point, Morgan has a brief moment of apoplexy.

In the mind of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the following equation is.... well, either wrong or false:

wrong = false

Via Hot Air:

After watching that insanity, take a look at this exchange between House Judiciary Committee member, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) and Attorney General Eric Holder on December 8, 2011. At issue is the Justice Department's then recent withdrawal of a February 4, 2011 letter sent to Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) by Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich. In that letter, Weich asserted that the ATF was not involved in gun-walking.

Just prior to this hearing, the Justice Department rescinded the letter and, in so doing, admitted that the letter was... false?

Uh, not so much. Like Piers Morgan, Gowdy appeared apoplectic when he couldn't get Holder to admit that the letter had been withdrawn because it was "demonstrably false".

Another sick parallel: Administration's treatment of Benghazi victims' families and Brian Terry family

This is a very powerful video from Pat Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, one of the four Americans killed in the Benghazi attack. Notice what she says because it's very similar to what the mother of slain Border Patrol agent Brian Terry has been saying for nearly two years now - she wants answers. At the 1:00 mark, Smith says she was told her son died of smoke inhalation and subsequently raises a very legitimate question about the photos of bloody handprints on the outside of the consulate. She then says what she's being told generally is filled with "outright lies".

Another very powerful moment comes just before the 2:00 mark, when she says Leon Panetta held her face with both hands, looked her in the eye and said, "Trust me. I will tell out what happened and so far, he's told me nothing, nothing at all."

She then mocks all members of the administration who told her to trust them before saying, "I don't trust you anymore." This is a must-see video.

Via Weekly Standard:

Josephine Terry, the mother of Brian Terry, testified before the House Oversight Committee on June 15, 2011, six months after the murder of her son. Though I can't find the video, here is audio of a portion of her exchange with Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID). Notice how Josephine's frustration with those who should have provided her with answers was very similar to the frustration of Pat Smith.

Now, to parallel what Pat Smith experienced - with Leon Panetta holding both sides of her face, looking her into the eyes, and telling her to trust him - to what Josephine Terry heard come out of the mouth of the Oversight Committee's ranking member, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD)...

Here is audio of Cummings at that same June 15, 2011 hearing.

Listen only if you can stand it.

In reality, Cummings defended Eric Holder to the bitter end. He stonewalled the committee's efforts to seek accountability and justice for the Terry family. In fact, more than one year after he lied to the Terry family, the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to which Cummings belongs, walked out of the Eric Holder contempt hearing.

Bald. Faced. Liar.

Go figure, he's a registered member of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) caucus (communists). And you know what communists do?

They lie.

Benghazi Security Officer: 'Taliban on the inside of the building'

After Oversight Committee member, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) asked Regional Security Officer in Benghazi, Eric Norsdtrom, if the latter ever thought he was going to have his requests met by the State Department, Nordstrom delivered a two minute answer that you've got to see. If you've ever had to deal with the bureaucratic machinations of any entity, you should be able to relate directly to the source of Nordstrom's frustration here.

If you can stand it, the first 4:45 of this clip is an exchange between Jordan and State Department bureaucrat, Patrick Kennedy, whose ramblings are reminiscent of an obfuscating pencil pusher with the protection of the bureaucracy he serves being the sole purpose of his existence. It's sad, really. At the 4:45 mark, Jordan obviously gets disgusted with Kennedy's response, and tees up a question for Nordstrom that involved a response that included a metaphor which likened the State Department to the Taliban.

Nordstrom: "For me, the Taliban is on the inside of the building."
