The Potential Danger of Donald Trump: Doug Coe, the Christian Fellowship (Family) and the Jesus Fanatics
(Didn’t vote for Trump or Hillary. Don’t blame me. I’m posting this because it concerns Freedom. I am not “Pro-Trump”, but I am not Anti-Trump either. Not yet. We have to see what he does, first. Give him a chance. But, watch for this angle of Christian Zionism that lurks in the background.)
This could be not much more than a bad hit piece against Trump, but I feel it’s best to let readers decide. And be forewarned.
Trump’s DNI – A Dire Wolf for Jesus
January 18, 2017
Certain Trump picks point to a religious-criminal cabal preparing for a Pence presidency. What do Vice President Mike Pence, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and certainly not least, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, have in common? Membership in ‘The Fellowship’, a quasi-religious organization-unregistered lobby with fingerprints all over past USA international crimes sprees. These three significant personalities all are under the ‘spiritual’ tutelage of Doug Coe, leader of ‘The Family’ where if you are ‘chosen’ there is a different standard, an unaccountable standard, where everything up to and inclusive of child rape is excused:
I’d almost forgotten the time Dan Coats, Trump’s pick for National Intelligence Director — the man to whom 16 intelligence agencies report — called me an “enemy of Jesus.”
Well, I didn’t hear him do it, but the source seemed solid. It was, I think, 2004, and I’d been invited to speak at the University of Potsdam, near Berlin, in a series sponsored by the U.S. embassy. My subject was “the Family,” the secretive fundamentalist organization of which Coats, unbeknownst to me at the time, is a member. When I arrived, my German host told me there’d been a little problem: the ambassador — Dan Coats — had blocked funding for my talk. “He said,” my host said, in thickly accented English, “you are an ‘enemy of Jesus.’”
My host was one of those deadpan Germans. He didn’t smile. I said, “You’re joking.”
“Yes,” he said, still unsmiling, “that is what I thought, too.” Apparently, the Germans had gone back and forth a couple of times with the embassy, unable to believe this was serious. And apparently the embassy personnel were plenty embarrassed about it, too. But that was Coats’ ruling, so it stuck. Fortunately for me, the university picked up my tab” Jeff Sharlet, author of The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power & C Street: The Fundamentalist Threat to American Democracy
Jeff Sharlet, in a 2003 interview, had stated concerning the Doug Coe cult:
“A lot of their key men in a country would be the intelligence [CIA] officers in the American embassy. Throughout their correspondence, that’s the kind of guy they would like to have involved [and] They always had a lot of Army intelligence guys involved, Pentagon guys”
Doug Coe: “Most of my friends are bad people”
Doug Coe’s ‘international bad friends’ have included (but are not limited to) Papa Doc Duvalier whose Tonton Macoute militia murdered up to 60,000 Haitians, “the most corrupt leader in modern history” (Transparency International) and mass murderer Suharto (Indonesia), CIA sponsored war criminal Gustavo Álvarez Martínez (Honduras), CIA ‘dirty wars’ mass torturer and murderer General Carlos Eugenios Vides Casanova (El Salvador), extrajudicial killer, kidnapper and torturer Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo (Equatorial Guinea), indicted war criminal Omar al-Bashir (Sudan), child soldier commander Joseph Kabila (Congo), Pentagon trained war criminal Paul Kagame (Rwanda), Kagame ally and child soldier employer Yoweri Museveni (Uganda) and killer par excellence Mohamed Siad Barre whom Coe facilitated (together with Charles Grassley) receiving the American weaponry Barre used to ‘wreak a biblical terror on his own nation’ (Somalia, which has never recovered.) To name a few.
Doug Coe: “We work with power where we can and build new power where we can’t”
“We” clearly includes Dan Coats and a political ‘bedroom’ surprise:
“Sharlet explores the role of a distinct “elite fundamentalism” through our history and culture, and illustrates how it currently operates at top levels of American business, government, and the military. This may come as a shock to those for whom overt fundamentalism in the federal government was not apparent before the administration of George W. Bush. But Sharlet demonstrates its role during the Cold War and since. We learn for example, of how “charitable choice,” the legislative precedent for George W. Bush’s “faith-based initiative,” stemmed from ideas incubated by The Family, and was sponsored by Family members, Republican Senators John Ashcroft and Dan Coats—with an assist from Family associate Senator Hillary Clinton”
Yep, that’s right folks, Dan Coats and Hillary share the same ‘spiritual’ umbrella:
“Doug Coe is a unique presence in Washington: a genuinely loving spiritual mentor and guide to anyone, regardless of party or faith, who wants to deepen his or her relationship with God” –Hillary Clinton
“You know Jesus said ‘You got to put Him before mother-father-brother sister? Hitler, Lenin, Mao, that’s what they taught the kids. Mao even had the kids killing their own mother and father. But it wasn’t murder. It was for building the new nation. The new kingdom” –Doug Coe
Yeah, the Hitler, Lenin & Mao admiring Coe is the ‘Christian’ spiritual guru of both; Hillary Rodham Clinton and Trump’s DNI Dan Coats. What more do we know?
Aspiring members of Coats’ ‘Family’ can be excused multiple child rapes:
“But David Coe, Doug Coe’s son and heir apparent, calls himself simply a friend to men such as John Ensign, whom he guided through the coverup of his affair. I met the younger Coe when I lived for several weeks as a member of the Family. He’s a surprising source of counsel, spiritual or otherwise. Attempting to explain what it means to be chosen for leadership like King David was — or Mark Sanford, according to his own estimate — he asked a young man who’d put himself, body and soul, under the Family’s authority, “Let’s say I hear you raped three little girls. What would I think of you?” The man guessed that Coe would probably think that he was a monster. “No,” answered Coe, “I wouldn’t.” Why? Because, as a member of the Family, he’s among what Family leaders refer to as the “new chosen.” If you’re chosen, the normal rules don’t apply“
In relation to child rape, when you belong to Pence, Sessions & Coats’ ‘family’ “If you’re chosen, the normal rules don’t apply”
Related to this preceding, we have Hillary working with Republican ‘Family’ to reduce a sex trafficking conviction to the much lower level of a prostitution conviction, which would seem like an ‘insurance policy’ were the DC centered pedophilia to break into the open at any level:
“What we saw was Hillary shaving off here and there on issues she didn’t think that the public would notice, trying to win peace with the Christian right.
“On the one level, you say that’s great, Democracy works through compromise.
“When you look more closely at some of the legislation, like sex trafficking legislation, she teamed up with [‘Family’ Senator Sam] Brownback and allowed Brownback to redesign legislation meant to stop sex trafficking, to make it an offense punishable as nothing more than prostitution.
“I think most sane people know that prostitutes are not the real criminals in this business, it’s the people moving human chattel around the world. The Family looks at it a bit differently”
A 2011 ‘Family’ Senate membership list includes not only DNI Dan Coats but also Trump’s Attorney General pick Jeff Sessions, pointing to we’ll know who, what and why ‘Family’ crimes, inclusive of child rape, will never be prosecuted:
Sen. Dan Coats (R-IN)
Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK)
Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC)
Sen. John Ensign (R-NV)
Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WY)
Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK)
Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL)
Sen. Mark Pryor (D-AR)
Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL)
Sen. John Thune (R-SD)
Sen. David Vitter (R-LA)
And then Mike Pence shows up:
“It’s this theology that drives the international exploits of a secretive group of Capitol Hill elites — including Jim DeMint and Mike Pence — known alternately as the Fellowship or the Family. The Family made rare headlines last year, when it was revealed the group had supported the Ugandan lawmakers who proposed an anti-LGBT bill that would make certain practices punishable by death”
Regardless of what you might think of Trump, and our republic’s archaic electoral college (constitutional provision) that elected him, Trump is the USA’s legitimate president. Meanwhile, any naif who’d believe these sort of ‘family’ personalities wouldn’t stoop to supporting a ‘Bump Trump’ caper, to put their man Pence into the White House, is not only beyond head examining help, we also could easily be worse off for the fact.
