On this episode of Fault Lines, hosts Garland Nixon and Lee Stranahan discuss why it is critical in our political environment to move past the constraints of traditional party politics to find solutions on key issues. How can anti-war policies, free speech, and access to unfiltered information serve as unifying forces for the American people? Guests: Dr. Bosworth - Internal Medicine Physician & Author | Is There a War on Eating Meat? Medea Benjamin - Co-Founder of Code Pink | Venezuela Update & Saudi Beheading Horror Jim Hoft - Founder of TheGatewayPundit.com | The Importance of Alternative Media & Growing Censorship Trends There are constantly new studies and evolving trends emerging in the medical community regarding proper diet and nutritional recommendations. Internal Medicine Physician Annette Bosworth M.D. returns to the program to give her thoughts on eating meat, consuming processed foods, and why it is important to drink an adequate amount of water regardless of one's diet. Code Pink Co-Founder Medea Benjamin has recently been staying at the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington DC in opposition to the Trump Administration's efforts to replace Venezuela's current President Nicolás Maduro with 35-year-old politician Juan Guaidó. Medea joins the hosts on today's show to discuss the current situation in Venezuela, the history of past US-led coups, why the anti-war movement is non-partisan, and to give her take on the recent beheadings that took place in Saudi Arabia. For the final segment, Garland and Lee are joined by Jim Hoft, Founder of TheGatewayPundit.com, for a conversation about the importance of alternative media and the nature of modern political censorship. How did the arrest of Julian Assange serve as a wake-up call for those concerned about freedom of speech, what is the role of technology in the increasing levels of online censorship, and why is truth a principle that crosses party lines?
