On this episode of Fault Lines, hosts Garland Nixon and Lee Stranahan discuss the growing field of Democratic 2020 Presidential candidates and their respective chances in the upcoming Primary. Is former Vice President Joe Biden the favorite despite not yet officially declaring his candidacy, and how important will fundraising be to win this race? Guests: Stephen Lendman - Writer and Geopolitical Analyst | The Crisis in Venezuela and its Possible Ramifications Joel Segal - Former Congressional Staffer | The 2020 Election and Money in Politics Dustin Stockton - Political Analyst and Former Breitbart Reporter | The Immigration Debate and Southern Border Situation Dr. Bill Honigman - Emergency Room Doctor & Progressive Healthcare Activist | Who is the Democratic Frontrunner for the 2020 Nomination? There is a lot of uncertainty surrounding the current situation in Venezuela and the next steps that the Trump administration could take to further their political goals in the country. Writer and geopolitical analyst Stephen Lendman returns to the show to discuss recent events in Venezuela and the possibility that this tension could lead to a new refugee crisis with migrants leaving Venezuela for other countries. The list of Democrats vying for their party's nomination for President continues to grow and the importance of fundraising is paramount for those who intend to be serious contenders. Former Congressional staffer Joel Segal joins today's show to discuss how this race is unfolding and why politicians oftentimes spend more time raising money than working on policy proposals and passing legislation. The immigration debate remains one of the most polarizing in American politics, and President Trump's decision to declare a 'National Emergency' regarding the Southern Border has inflamed the issue and partisan divide to a greater degree. Political analyst and former Breitbart News reporter Dustin Stockton joins Garland and Lee to talk about the ongoing immigration debate, the status of a border wall, and why immigration reform is a populist issue for the American people. With an increasing number of Democrats announcing their intention to run for President in 2020, it is becoming even more difficult to determine who the current favorites are in their party's upcoming Primary. Emergency Room Doctor & Progressive Activist Dr. Bill Honigman returns to the program to give his thoughts on the current crop of candidates and how they are resonating with progressive activists and likely Democratic Primary voters.
