On this episode of Fault Lines, hosts Garland Nixon and Lee Stranahan discuss President Trump's expected "National Emergency" declaration related to the southern border wall. What does this move mean for the country right now, and what will this decision mean for the immigration debate moving forward? Guests: Mark Sleboda - International Relations & Security Analyst | Maria Butina Speaks Out... Jim Hoft - Founder of the Gateway Pundit | When will Jussie Smollett Come Clean with the Truth? Vanessa Beeley - Investigative Journalist | Did a BBC Producer Tell the Truth About the Douma Hoax? Tom Luongo - Geopolitical Analyst and Publisher of the Gold Goats 'n Guns Newsletter | The Week's Geopolitical Round-Up Late last year, Russian national and gun rights activist Maria Butina pled guilty to conspiracy to act as an unregistered agent of Russia after being held in solitary confinement for an extended period of time. Butina recently spoke about her treatment and experience, which Garland and Lee will discuss with International Relations & Security Analyst Mark Sleboda on today's show. Actor Jussie Smollett's "story" about how he was targeted in a racist/homophobic attack last month in Chicago appears to be crumbling as the facts of the case are revealed to the public. Jim Hoft, founder of The Gateway Pundit, returns to Fault Lines to analyze Smollett's words, actions, and the likelihood that this entire incident was manufactured. A producer for the BBC recently tweeted that the viral video which claimed to show a chemical attack at a hospital in Douma, Syria was a staged event. Investigative journalist Vanessa Beeley reported on the events in Douma from Syria last year, and she will talk about this newest admission with Garland and Lee on today's program. For the final segment, geopolitical analyst Tom Luongo joins the show to recap some of the week's major international stories and to talk more about hedge fund manager Bill Browder. What is driving Trump's foreign policy agenda, and how has Browder's narrative continued to crumble as his past actions continue to be exposed.
