@politico tRump is parroting the Koch Right Wing group running his administration & today's GOP. The "reopen" agenda is the KOCH agenda. They mobilized a wide network of groups... astrofturf protesters to lobbyists to gain visibility & political credibility. theintercept.com/2020/03/26/ame…
@politico Even the Koch appointee, Scott Gottlieb (AEI) is promoting a watered down version of their agenda...
Gee...the MSM always seems to forget to mention that this is an organized assault on our government & the public by the Koch RWing group that brought us trump & run the WH & GOP
@politico MSM won't report the big picture... but, today's GOP, trump, what's occurring is explained in the books below...

@McFaul When will people wake up & realize that the Republican party is a christofascist party now? They have no desire to play fair or lose power. This is 50 plus years of consorting with the religious right. The religious right is tight with Russia.
@McFaul Why doesn't the #MSM report on all the members of Council for National Policy in this administration? Their goal is theocracy by 2020. They're no different than ISIS or Al-Qaeda. Religious extremists are dangerous.
@McFaul Read the books #DemocracyInChains, #DarkMoney, and watch the series about #TheFamily. Wake up people!!!

THREAD: #TheFamily in Australia

Anyone watching the Netflix series called 'The Family' would have been shocked to learn about the political influence a secret fundamentalist christian sect were able to have on American policy for over 50 years.

netflix.com/au/title/80063…
Jeff Sharlet who featured in the series has deeply researched these people, and describes how their leader, Doug Coe, told people they need to “emulate” totalitarian regimes in which children kill or inform on their parents in order to build a new society. #TheFamily in Australia
While this seems a repudiation of Christian principles, those acting for God have different rules to follow than the rest of us. Doug Coe’s son and The Family’s heir apparent, David, explained what it meant to be a divinely chosen leader.

Tweeting again for emphasis: Documentary proof of collaboration between CIA, #DougCoe, leader of #TheFamily & GOP Sen. @ChuckGrassley in propping up the murderous regime of Somalian dictator Siad Barre, who laid utter ruin to his nation with American help, thru #TheFamily.
@ChuckGrassley @lisa_getter did tremendous work on #TheFamily's brutal overseas adventurism. Somalia was the last case study I examined in their archives before they began closing them. What the facts add up to is bleak and broken...
@ChuckGrassley @lisa_getter Once a member of #TheFamily, an oilman named Greg Unumb, called me from Angola to challenge me: Did the dictators supported by #DougCoe do their killing before or after his interventions? In the case of Somalia's Siad Barre, the answer is easy: Before, after, during. Throughout.

#TheFamily is a new Netflix documentary about a secretive, international network of the Christian Right that has profoundly influenced governments in the US and around the world for decades.

Review: Netflix’s The Family | Political Research Associates

”A hair-raising story backed up by photos, internal documents, and first-hand experiences” revealed in @JeffSharlet’s books:

So. I was born in 1976. I started school in August 1980, just before I turned 5, at home - my older brother had attended an ACE kindergarten, and it was deemed too liberal by my parents (his teacher wore PANTS when she wasn't teaching!) #thread CW: Abuse
I was literally part of the first wave of Christian Right-wing Homeschoolers; my parents had planned to homeschool us illegally, and it became legal that month in Louisiana because a legislator's relative wanted to homeschool.
I learned to read when I was 4. I also was acutely observant and aware - because by that time I'd already survived broken bones in my arm and neck, at least one rape, and an STD. This made me hypervigilant, and also primed me to be skeptical of everything around me.

OK dear friend I have done a full thread to that in Arabic
I'll try to make it in English
First major similarity is the refusal to be organised with official presence. The founder and up tell now calling it "Al-gama'a"... And they call each other "Brother"..
The founder insisted on not considering the group a party nor a NGO just a unique structure that collects Salfism, Sofi and with good relations to Shiite in same time
The founder issued "The Letters" and "the 20 rules" which has the same importance to the members as Jesus booklet

The Family Research Council is abhorrent. It’s President, Tony Perkins, is also president of the Council for National Policy (to which Bannon, KA, the Mercer’s & Wayne LaLierre of the NRA belong). FRC is attacking @splcenter, which exposed both groups for what they are. 1/
2/ The Council for National Policy (CNP), a secretive networking group for the Religious Right & billionaires, has ties to:

* The NRA
* Russia
* Voting machine vendor ES&S,
* Cambridge Analytica
* Massive recent voter data leaks

It has a 2020 deadline... link.medium.com/u2TotqLDjZ
Like the Family Research Council, the Council for National Policy is virulently anti-LGBTQ, and Trump does their bidding. 3/ link.medium.com/zxMT7X4DjZ

1/ Watched Ep. 4 of #TheFamily, and what stands out is their idea that they, like Paul, were also chosen to bear witness for Jesus before kings. Now, Acts 9:15-16 does present the figure of Paul as being chosen for such a task. Jesus gives Ananias a prophetic message for Paul.
2/ When one reads the entire story of Acts, Paul does encounter various political figures either on his missionary journeys or as a prisoner:

Acts 13:7 – Meets Proconsul Sergius Paulus
Acts 24 – Prisoner before Felix the governor
Acts 25 – Prisoner before Festus the governor
3/ See also:

Acts 25:11-12 – Paul asks to be judged by Caesar
Acts 26 – Prisoner before King Agrippa
Philippians 4:22 – Paul sends greetings to the Philippians from those who are of Caesar’s household

These few New Testament examples show how Paul's calling was understood.

"Internally, it is spoken of primarily as a 'recruiting device' with which to draw 'key men' into smaller prayer cells to 'meet Jesus man to man.'

Practically, the Prayer Breakfast has functioned from the very beginning as an unregistered lobbying festival."
"The Prayer Breakfast isn't the only way the Fellowship has infiltrated the highest levels of the U.S. government."
"It’s so different than our popular impression of the Christian right, it's different than the image of the sweaty pulpit pounders... Those are mass movements, this is the opposite of that."

I’m about 5 minutes into #TheFamily on @netflix and I am already extremely creeped out and completely mortified.

This may be a bit premature, but this might actually be integral to understanding evangelical devotion to @realDonaldTrump, and the @GOP as an organization.
One episode down and it’s not getting any better. The implications of this organization on our government and on governments all over the world are astounding. I’m struggling with the sensation of hearing GOP rhetoric being parroted through this massive conspiracy. #TheFamily
One thing is for sure, I have to get my hands on @JeffSharlet’s books.

There is a massive part of me that desperately wants to believe this is fiction, but this feeling of dread deep in my bones says otherwise.

Where have I heard the name Doug Coe before?
