The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure.

Jesus & Capitol Hill don't mix....



Meet The Fellowship, the secret organization at the center of Netflix’s five-part docu-series “The Family,” a project that was made “with unprecedented participation from members of the organization,” which examines the “sophisticated, successful tactics its affiliates use to influence policy-making around the globe.”

In the trailer you’ll see experts and organization members discuss The Fellowship’s “involvement in widespread political scandals, the notorious C Street house and investigate how the immensely private organization works with the current administration.”

Here’s the official description for “The Family,” courtesy of Netflix:

Every February, on the first Thursday, at the same hotel, dignitaries and guests from 100 countries gather in America’s capital for a blessing. While more than 3,000 people attend the National Prayer Breakfast — including every U.S. president since Dwight Eisenhower — the host organization has long shrouded itself in secrecy. Technically, it’s called The Fellowship, but former “brother” members like New York Times bestselling author Jeff Sharlet know the group as The Family.

As he learned firsthand and documented in The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power, The Family believes the separation of church and state is unnecessary, and political affiliation is irrelevant. The Family grooms and supports leaders, teaching them that the Bible is a story about power, not mercy – that leaders are chosen by God, not elected.

The docu-series is directed by Jesse Moss and executive produced by Alex Gibney.
