On this episode of Fault Lines, hosts Garland Nixon and Lee Stranahan discuss recent tweets made by President Trump that caused quite a stir targeting a select group of first-year Congresswomen including Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Were Trump's tweets beneath the dignity of his office, and how will his base view these remarks? Guests: Stephen Lendman - Writer and Geopolitical Analyst | US-Iran Tension & The Modern Purpose of NATO Elizabeth Vos - Independent Journalist, Contributor to Consortium News & Co-founder of Unity4J | Twitter Censorship & Threats to Independent Journalism Daniel Lazare - Journalist & Author | Reporting on RussiaGate Narratives & Robert Mueller's History As heightened tension and adversarial rhetoric between the US and Iran continues, the looming threat of a major military conflict remains. Stephen Lendman, a Writer and Geopolitical Analyst, joins the hosts to talk about current US-Iranian relations, the nuclear programs in both Iran and Israel, Turkey's status in NATO, and the purpose that NATO serves in the modern world. The "Unity4J" Twitter account, which attempted to unite various groups in support of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, was recently suspended on the popular social media platform. Independent Journalist Elizabeth Vos returns to the show to discuss this Twitter suspension, the growing issue of social media censorship, threats to independent journalism, and the likelihood these trends will continue to worsen as we head towards the 2020 Election. Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation failed to bring about major findings that would derail President Trump and his administration to the disappointment of many of Trump's political adversaries. Journalist & Author Daniel Lazare joins Garland and Lee to provide analysis on the timeline of events surrounding RussiaGate, Robert Mueller's history working in government, and how the mainstream media has selectively reported on facts throughout the course of the Mueller probe.
