    Republicans have added the elimination of the personal mandate under the ACA to their tax plan. The military has assumed control in Zimbabwe. A gunman opened fire in California killing four and injuring at least ten during a rampage yesterday. GOP Senate Candidate Roy Moore faces more pressure to step aside.

    On this episode of "Fault Lines," hosts Garland Nixon and Lee Stranahan discuss the accusations of sexual misconduct against GOP Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore that have led some Republican Senators to vow they will work to expel the embattled candidate from the Senate should he win the special election next month. Some erstwhile Moore supporters such as FOX News personality Sean Hannity are demanding that Moore explain himself or lose their support. Meanwhile, many Evangelicals remain steadfastly behind Moore. Can Democrat Doug Jones-best known for bringing the KKK terrorists who killed 4 little girls in the infamous Birmingham church bombing to justice-win in one of the reddest of red states?

    Garland and Lee will also discuss federal authorities ordering the RT news network to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA)-a law intended to curtail Nazi propaganda before World War II. What are the ramifications of this edict for other foreign-based news agencies including the British Broadcasting Company (BBC), Al Jazeera, and Agence France-Presse (AFP)? Will this have a chilling effect on other news agencies that question more or tell the untold?

    The hosts and guests will analyze top news stories and issues including the coup in Zimbabwe; the Senator Robert Menendez trial; the latest mass shooting; the US backed Saudi war on Yemen; the tax haven revelations known as "The Paradise Papers"; American Government and Black Politics under Trump; U.S. Nuclear Weapons policies; and other major news items.

    Scheduled guests include: Rosie Perper — Global News Reporter for Business Insider. Topic: The Paradise Papers-international tax haven scandal. Dominic Carter — Reporter for Verizon Fios News. Topic: Senator Robert Menendez Trial; Steve Cobble — associate fellow with the Institute for Policy Studies.
