Never let a good crisis get in the way of promoting your brand. Just as Ivanka Trump who has taken to social media to praise the “courage and bravery”of the Ukrainians while commending the “volunteers” who are “risking their lives” to deliver more than one million meals across the country, thanks to public-private partnerships forged with churches that have transformed Christian institutions into government contractors.
After Ivanka’s tears moved her father to bomb Syria so her husband’s friends could drill for oil in the Golan Heights, her heart-felt sympathy for the victims of Russian’s assualt against the Ukraine inspired her to work for Christian charities that send food parcels to Kyiv, Lviv, and Sumy.
“To the people of Ukraine, you are in our thoughts and prayers,” an earnest Ivanka told her fans on Instagram. “And our hearts break for what you are experiencing in this dire time. You have inspired the world with your courage and bravery as you fight for your country and for your freedoms.”
In case the public were outraged over another senseless war that has so far claimed the lives of 17,000 Russian troops and pulverized Ukrainian cities, local rabbis, priests, and other “faith leaders” appeared before the media to distribute food parcels to devastated Ukrainians.
With its family and friends amassing a fortune through public-private partnerships, the Bush clan appreciated that profits were to be made by transforming churches into government contractors which advanced globalism while enriching politically connected friends. These arrangements pulled the wool over the eyes of the Christian conservative base, while mobilizing patriots behind them, and neutralize any criticism or scrutiny of their self-serving agendas.
The separation of church and state was extinguished on January 29, 2001, when President George W. Bush issued an Executive Order at the White House for an Office of Faith-based and Community Initiatives to engage 11 federal agencies in helping churches provide social services. To this end, the Bush Administration forged partnerships with religious organizations, in line with public-private partnerships that enabled powerful special interests to enrich themselves through government contracting by providing an endless array of products and services on the government’s dime.
Not long after, ministers being subsidized by pharmaceutical companies, were encouraging their congregations to support government initiatives like the Affordable Care Act, woke activism, and open borders. During the Trump Administration, they discussed the benefits of vaccines from the pulpit. Through government initiatives, values were being reshaped and realigned to support globalism.
President Barack Obama reinforced these efforts through his own Executive Order, dated February 5, 2009, through which a President’s Advisory Council for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships was established, ensuring that congregation-based community organizations moved in lock step with the federal government to advance public policy.
The Trump Administration built upon the inroads Bush and Obama had made with churches to promote the Trump brand. Ivanka was quick ot join former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger to launch a multi-million dollar, taxpayer-funded program to promote female entrepreneurship overseas. Many female entrepreneurs had lost their companies and jobs to globalism while Ivanka grifted off the taxpayer to promote her brand as a champion of women entrepreneurs, like herself.
Reaffirming her true globalist leanings, Ivanka joined Chobani yogurt founder Hamdi Ulukaya to deliver food to people in need as part of a Farmers to Families food box program. She did not dip into the millions of dollars in profits she had made through her own businesses to feed the hungry. Rather, she tapped into church-government contracting programs through the Department of Agriculture to provide food banks and community organizations with surplus produce.
Launched in 2020, Ivanka’s $6 billion Farmers to Families Box Program (USDA) provided fresh produce to families affected by the coronavirus pandemic, a program that was discontinued over “alleged mismanagement” and reports of redirecting public funds for private gain. While the ordinary person saw a dramatic increase in their grocery bills, Ivanka virtue signaled while distributing free groceries with by a letter signed by President Donald Trump.
The effort tapped into a collaborative network of churches that engaged in charity “in the name of Jesus,” even though Ivanka is Jewish. As of January 4, 2021, the Secretary of Agriculture was seeking an additional $1.5 billion worth of food for a Farmers to Families Food Box program while the price ordinary Americans were paying for food skyrocketed. According to a press release, over 3.3 billion meals were distributed – or 10 boxes per American citizen. How many American citizens actually received them? “During these unprecedented times, this Administration will continue to fight for American families and will always put them first,” Ivanka said.
While farmers were being ordered to slaughter their own livestock and stores were suffering supply chain issues brought on by the pandemic, the USDA “purchased combination boxes to ensure all involved recipient organizations have access to fresh produce, dairy products, fluid milk, and meat products, and seafood products will also be included in this round.”
Who were the recipients? Why were efforts not made to address the problems of American homelessness, due in part to the outlandish cost of real estate brought on by the predatory, self-serving policies of banks while firms, like the Carlyle Group and BlackRock, and real estate investors, like Ivanka’s husband, Jared Kushner, have made obscene levels of profits through government grift? Instead, the government and its corporate allies created conditions of desperation and then injected themselves into the problem to solve it, with taxpayer funds and allotments going to politically-connected contractors – not to people the Americans may have wanted to receive support, like neighbors, but, potentially to refugees and a steady stream of desperate immigrants.
A hint to who these beneficiaries were lies in the name of the “Dream Centers.” The Farmers to Families Food Box program is part of the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP), which was developed as part of the federal government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, with advice on offer from such Hamilton Project board members as former Google CEO Eric Schmidt and Carlyle Group founder David Rubenstein.
Ivanka’s partner in his humanitarian effort was Chobani yogurt founder Hamdi Ulukaya, a self-made billionaire and Turkish immigrant whose company has “proudly resettled refugees from Iraq, Afghanistan, Turkey, and other countries to work in its factories in upstate New York and Idaho,” the Mercury News reported. Info Wars chieftain Alex Jones accused the yogurt company of “importing migrants” while Steve Bannon said the company was fueling a “Muslim refugee crisis.” Ulukaya even spoke out against Trump’s temporary Muslim travel ban on grounds that “this is very personal for me.”
Upon closer inspection, Ivanka’s charitable efforts reflect government grifting and pandering to globalism. Christianity Today reported, for example, that the Dream Center was a “model of faith-based organizations,” which essentially built upon the partnerships Bush and Obama had established with churches to project the government’s arm into congregations to ensure that government and churches were aligned in purpose. The Dream Center was described as a “shelter for “human trafficking victims” while George W. Bush described it in 1998 as a “model for faith-based organizations,” an endorsement that should raise questions about the true intent behind such efforts.
The Dream Center is globalist by design – it has 84 centers in 29 states and 11 different countries, raising questions of why this effort is being funded by American taxpayers. Ulukaya attended the World Economic Forum in Davos, which is advancing the Great Reset, a project geared at consolidating the world’s wealth and power under the Vatican and Rothschilds. Add to this that Ivanka was identified as a “Young Global Leader” by the World Economic Forum in 2015.
Ulukaya has reportedly teamed with corporate leaders and foreign governments to help resettle refugees. While his intentions on behalf of victimized people is noble, the Vatican has weaponized immigration against the West. Rather than promoting self-determination, national sovereignty, peace and prosperity among nations to curb the need for refugee programs, people are being displaced and relocated into foreign countries, like the United States, through endless wars that are being waged at the expense of ordinary people to advance the cause of globalism.
Ulukaya has reportedly pledged $2 million to the United Nations High Commissioner of Refugees; signed The Giving Pledge, a philanthropic initiative by billionaires Warren Buffett and Bill Gates; served as Obama’s Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship; and been a member of the Upstate Regional Advisory Board of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, reflecting interests aligned with the corporate, political, and financial elite whose self-serving, unprincipled actions have created the very refugee crisis upon which Ivanka was burnishing the Trump brand.
For an Administration that campaigned on an American First agenda at a time when U.S. citizens were suffering, losing their homes, and falling into destitution Ivanka’s charitable efforts exposed the hypocrisy and self-serving nature of the Trump clan who owed their wealth, power, and privilege to government grift and globalism.
