On this episode of Fault Lines, hosts Garland Nixon and Lee Stranahan discuss the fallout from Robert Mueller's investigation and the reactions of the mainstream media. Will the establishment press reflect and learn from its frenzied reporting of this story, or is more shoddy and biased journalism inevitable from this group moving forward? Guests: Maram Susli - Geopolitical Analyst | The Reality of the Golan Heights & Genie Energy Ted Rall - Political Cartoonist & Syndicated Columnist | Will the Media and Establishment Democrats Learn ANYTHING from the RussiaGate Debacle? Jim Hoft - Founder of the Gateway Pundit | The Credibility of RussiaGate Conspiracy Theorists & Michael Avenatti Gets Arrested for Extortion Tom Luongo - Geopolitical Analyst and Publisher of the Gold Goats 'n Guns Newsletter | Trump's Golan Heights Move, the Mueller Investigation, and What's Next with Brexit President Trump's decision to recognize the Golan Heights as part of Israel was a controversial move which has been met with opposition from many angles. Geopolitical Analyst Maram Susli returns to the program to discuss the relevance and potential impact of Trump's Golan Heights move, the importance of oil and resources in the region, and some details about the well-connected company named Genie Energy. The conclusion of Robert Mueller's investigation has exposed much of the corporate mainstream media for their biased and uncritical reporting of the RussiaGate story. Political Cartoonist & Syndicated Columnist Ted Rall joins today's show to talk about what both the Democratic Party establishment and mainstream media should take away from this situation and why many progressives never bought into the political establishment's narrative about RussiaGate. There has been a great deal of censorship on social media in recent months, much of which has been related to commentary on the Mueller Investigation and RussiaGate story. Jim Hoft, Founder of the Gateway Pundit, joins the hosts to give his take on the conclusion of the Mueller probe, ongoing issues with censorship on social media, and the surprise arrest of high-profile lawyer Michael Avenatti. For the final two segments, Garland and Lee are joined by geopolitical analyst Tom Luongo to discuss a variety of topics including the Golan Heights, RussiaGate, and the future of Brexit. How connected is Genie Energy to Trump's Golan Heights decision, in what ways did the RussiaGate story expose the corrupt nature of the US mainstream media, and what is next to come for Theresa May and the Brexit situation in the United Kingdom?
