Carl Zha - Host of The Silk and Steel podcast | China Conducts Pressure Flights Into Taiwan Airspace
Ted Rall - political cartoonist and syndicated columnist | Biden’s Build Back Better Takes a Back Seat
Dr. Gene Olinger - Professor and principal science advisor for MRI Global Inc. | COVID Antiviral Pills
In the first hour, Carl Zha joined the show to talk about the warplane flights they are conducting in Taiwan’s airspace. Looking at the flight plans, it is clear these are not aggressive flights, but they are probing Taiwan.
In the second hour, Fault Lines was joined by Ted Rall for a discussion on the last legs of Biden’s Build Back Better plan. Will congress even be able to pass a Social Welfare Bill with Sen. Manchin and Sen. Sinema holding out?
In the third hour, Dr. Gene Olinger joined the conversation to talk about the effectiveness of a COVID-19 antiviral pill. Will the public finally accept this as a method of protecting against coronavirus, or will the people holding out from the vaccine refuse all medicines?
