What did you think were the highlights of FaultLinesRadio today? (May 31, 2019)

Hey everyone,

Starting as soon as next week, we’re going to be putting out a half-hour or so Fault Lines Digest version of each day’s show...

We would like your input on what the highlights of each day are and we’re going to set up a special forum to do just that…but for now, let’s look at today’s show...anything you think we should include?

Here’s today’s show...

 

On this episode of Fault Lines, hosts Garland Nixon and Lee Stranahan analyze how the QAnon craziness has impacted our political climate and why it has taken attention away from important revelations made by Julian Assange and WikiLeaks. Are QAnon supporters now running out of steam, or is there always a new "plan" and narrative to "trust?"
Guests:
Ariel Gold - National Co-Director at Code Pink | Venezuela Update, Netanyahu's Struggles & The Abortion Debate
Carmine Sabia - Writer & Managing Editor at TheFederalistPapers.org | What is the Anti-Trump Media Hoping to Accomplish?
Ryan Cristián - Founder and Editor of The Last American Vagabond | Venezuela, ElectionGuard, Julian Assange & Bilderberg 2019
Ariel Gold, National Co-Director at Code Pink, returns to 'Fault Lines' to provide an update on the arrests and subsequent charges from earlier this month related to events at the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington DC. They also discuss how the political situation in Venezuela has evolved in recent weeks, Benjamin Netanyahu's problems trying to form a new coalition government in Israel, and how Code Pink is getting involved in the abortion debate following new laws being passed related to this issue.
Some Democrats and members of "The Resistance" have interpreted Robert Mueller's recent public announcement as a green light to pursue the impeachment of President Trump. Carmine Sabia, Writer & Managing Editor at TheFederalistPapers.org, joins today's program to give his analysis of Mueller's announcement, how the major news networks covered this event, and what the true motives of the anti-Trump media really are.
For the final two segments, Garland and Lee are joined by Ryan Cristián, Founder and Editor of The Last American Vagabond, for a conversation about a variety of topics including US involvement in Venezuela and Microsoft's new election software, ElectionGuard. They also discuss the status of Julian Assange's health and the significance of Mike Pompeo and Jared Kushner attending this year's Bilderberg Meeting.

 

I always enjoy when Ryan is on, however, I believe the most important aspect of today's show was the conversation regarding Q Anon.  At this juncture, its no longer idiocy; its downright dangerous.

Quotables 5-31-19 Is the Anti-Trump Media its Own Worst Enemy?

Hour Two

Sabia  83:01 - 84:07   "by the way the part that drives me nuts when Democrats were coming out and saying "...you know Mueller's basically said, he said impeach..."      ...Who the hell is Mueller?!    I don't see Mueller's name in the Constitution! ... no special counsel in the constitution!
They're treating this guy, like as if some kind of God has come down from the heavens and said "we must do this."
He's just a former FBI director., calm down."

Stranahan  93:47 - 94:31
You'll get people like [Admiral] James Woolsey,
(he'll admit that occasionally when he's asked
...you're right nobody nobody asked him)...

... the CIA's first operation, the first thing they did, 1948,
was interfere in the Italian election...

And no one, when they get a guy like Woolsey on, if they'd just ask him:
"okay tell me,
(let's uh let's rate the trade craft Russia used here)
let's discuss, that you as a person, {it [he] was a former director of the CIA],
If someone came to you and said:
here's my plan to overthrow the Russian election.
We are gonna spend $40,000 on the equivalent of Russia's Facebook... okay hear me out boss...
you know, well, how would you rate that?

Stranahan That is, anybody who knows anything about intelligence would go "that's not a plan!"

Nixon:  yeah but what about the part of the plan where you run half of your ads after the election?
Stranahan:  You see our brilliance my friend yes that cover-up you see
that's why you do it

Nixon  90:19 - 91:28  on MSM as PR outlets … floods and murders joke
Nixon  91:37 - 91:47 "Carmine I think it's unhealthy that what we call news outlets now they're not news outlets they're                   PR outlets for the for the parties I don't think that's a healthy what do you think?"

Sabia   93:04 - 93:12  "the other thing is that all the networks are on board with this Russia evil Russia evil Russia evil                      Russia evil this..."
Nixon  91:57 - 92:02 "cause now, you can either tune on news that tells you the democrats are evil or you can turn news                  that the Republicans are evil but you cant turn on NEWS!
Sabia   90:00 - 90:05   "it should be called DSN; deep state news. Crazy. "
