The Council Has Spoken!! This Weeks’ Watcher’s Council Results – 07/11/14

The Watcher’s Council


Obama’s Brownshirts: “It’s not fascism when we do it!”

The Council has spoken, the votes have been cast and the results are in for this week’s Watcher’s Council match-up.

“Nobody knows how to deal with a guy who makes up the law every day as he gets up. We’ve never confronted this before. We’ve never had a president who is so lawless.
We’ve never had a president who is so unconcerned with the Constitution. We’ve never dealt with it, so nobody knows what to do.” – Rush Limbaugh

“If those who wrote and ratified the 14th Amendment had imagined… and had anticipated huge waves of illegal immigration – is it reasonable to presume they would have wanted to provide the reward of citizenship to the children of the violators of those laws? Surely not.
– George Will

“I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone” – President Barack Hussein Obama on his willingness to go around congress with executive orders.

Most Americans are appalled at the chaos on our southern border. But chaos isn’t always unplanned, as this weeks’ winner The Noisy Room’s ACORN for Illegal Aliens – Meet the Southwest Key Programs reveals. Here, Noisy Room gives us the skinny on a non-profit funded by your tax dollars that is taking a leading role in President Obama’s plans to change America with de facto amnesty. Here’s a slice:

Are you curious who has been facilitating the transport of illegal alien children throughout the country? Look no more… meet La Raza connected Southwest Key Programs. This organization is the pipeline for the children into US refugee camps and homes across the nation. They provide immigrant youth shelters. It is a well-oiled machine that was set up to educate and reintegrate youth into American society. They also provide training for jobs. And baby, they are hiring.

Southwest Key Programs is funded by government and state programs. Here is an overview of what they do:

Southwest Key Programs is a national nonprofit organization providing transformative education, innovative safe shelters and alternatives to incarceration for over 200,000 youth and their families annually, while creating opportunities for their families to become self-sufficient. The inspiring youth and parents we work with are seeking the American dream: equality, education, and a higher quality of life. At Southwest Key, we simply open the doors to opportunity so they can achieve these dreams.

Southwest Key Programs ranks 5th among the Top Hispanic Nonprofits in America, employing a creative and diverse staff of over 2,200 employees. Because of Southwest Key’s work, thousands of youth have been diverted from prisons, jails, and institutions, enabling them to stay at home with their families and out of trouble. Southwest Key has reunified thousands of immigrant children with their families and provided these unaccompanied minors with 24-hour care and education. Southwest Key is one of only three nonprofits in Austin to be accredited by the Council on Accreditation, the nation’s leading human service accrediting body.

From the start, a cornerstone of all of our programs has been culturally-relevant education. Since 1999 we have refined our model by operating leading alternative schools throughout Texas, preventing hundreds of youth from dropping out of school by providing them with individualized education in a therapeutic setting. In 2009, East Austin College Prep opened at Southwest Key’s El Centro de Familia campus.

Over $8 million went into building their facility for this. This business was founded in 1987 and was made-to-order for Obama’s manufactured chaos on the border. Fast facts on Southwest Key Programs:

They are connected to the Office of Refugee Resettlement:

About Unaccompanied Children’s Services

“Following the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) mission, which is founded on the belief that new arriving populations have inherent capabilities when given opportunities, ORR/ Division of Children Services/Unaccompanied Alien Children program provides unaccompanied alien children (UAC) with a safe and appropriate environment as well as client-focused highest quality of care to maximize the UAC’s opportunities for success both while in care, and upon discharge from the program to sponsors in the U.S. or return to home country, to assist them in becoming integrated members of our GLOBAL SOCIETY.”

It is to laugh. If their intent was the highest quality of care and safety, they have failed already and spectacularly. Their real goal is the GLOBAL SOCIETY.

As an aside, here is a map where illegal alien children are currently being housed. Thank you Weasel Zippers. I would imagine that Southwest Key Programs will transport children from these facilities to put them either with their families that are here legally or illegally, or house them in homes until their family is brought over. We are talking 10?s of millions being brought in and this organization will not only facilitate an invasion force, they will get wealthy doing it from government and state funds. I understand that Texas alone has given them over $150,000 in state monies.

In our non-Council category, the winner was Kevin D. WilliamsonBorn on the Fifth of July, submitted by Joshuapundit. He is fast becoming one of my favorite writers and in this tour de force he wonderfully encapsulates America’s outrage at the de facto amnesty for illegal aliens being forced on America. Do read it.

I don’t do this often, but I feel obliged this week to especially recommend the second place winner in this category, British MP Daniel Hannan’sThe Forgotten Flag of the American Revolution and What It Means, submitted by The Watcher. It’ll definitely teach you something you probably didn’t know and give you an interesting perspective on our American Revolution.

Here are this week’s full results. Only Simply Jews was unable to vote this week, but was not affected by the 2/3 vote penalty:
