Mon, 19 Sep 2016 11:00:00 -0700
Bombs in New York and New Jersey and stabbings in Minnesota are raising familiar issues about national security. They might well influence ongoing debate about Edward Snowden.

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 11:00:00 -0700
Hillary Clinton has labeled half of Donald Trump’s supporters "deplorables." Trump has said, "Fifty percent of Americans just sit back and do nothing." As the rhetoric of this campaign becomes more divisive than ever, how difficult will be to govern — whoever ends up in the White House?

Thousands of Native Americans have gathered in North Dakota to protest an oil pipeline they claim endangers not just the water supply for a nearby reservation but sacred burial sites and other relics. It's beginning to look like a new movement for American Indian rights and protections.

Wed, 31 Aug 2016 11:00:00 -0700
Women have struggled to increase their numbers in the US Senate. But, after November's election, there could be more than ever before. And female candidates are key to the Democrats re-taking control of the Upper House. We look at the states that could make a difference.
Tue, 30 Aug 2016 11:00:00 -0700
In France, there's a paradox: secularism is sacred. So it's no accident that the battle over body-covering burkinis started there. But the conflict is emblematic of cultural and religious challenges all over the world, including here in the United States.
Mon, 29 Aug 2016 11:00:00 -0700
Immigration has been the identifying issue of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, but — in his own words — he's "softening" his call for mass deportations. If he really means it, what about his base of supporters, the Republican Party and the future of "immigration reform."
Fri, 26 Aug 2016 11:00:00 -0700
Hillary Clinton denies any conflict of interest with the Clinton Foundation when she was Secretary of State. But, as she rarely sits down to explain her side of the story, it's potency as a campaign issue is increasing. We try to find the line between appearances and realities.
Thu, 25 Aug 2016 11:00:00 -0700

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 11:00:00 -0700
In his first term, President Obama pledged to work for nuclear disarmament. But America's arsenal is still being "modernized" -- and he's approved $11 billion for a so-called "smart" bomb. Is he living up to the promise that got him the Nobel Peace Prize?
Tue, 23 Aug 2016 11:00:00 -0700
Private prisons have long been criticized as selling justice to the highest bidder. Now the Obama Justice Department says it's ending a practice begun during the Reagan Administration.

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 11:00:00 -0700
Utah has gone almost unnoticed in presidential campaigns, because it's been so reliably Republican Red. Now Donald Trump is turning it into a battleground state. We hear what that has to do with the Mormon Church and how it reveals the depths of divisions within the GOP.

Tue, 09 Aug 2016 11:00:00 -0700

Tue, 02 Aug 2016 11:00:00 -0700

Thu, 14 Jul 2016 11:00:00 -0700
Donald Trump has promised repeal of President Obama’s major achievement: the Affordable Care Act. Now even Obama is proposing a major change—the “public option” pushed by Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. Would that save Obamacare? Would it have a chance of passing the House and the Senate?
Wed, 13 Jul 2016 11:00:00 -0700
Republicans are famous for nominating conventions that run so smoothly it’s a challenge for anybody but delegates to stay awake. Next week’s meeting in Cleveland is going to be very different, as we’ll hear on our program.
Tue, 12 Jul 2016 11:00:00 -0700The election of Barack Obama raised high hopes that America’s legacy of racism had finally been overcome. But, after a week of deadly violence, the nation—and the President—face a very different reality.

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 11:00:00 -0700
A sniper attack in Dallas left five officers dead and seven wounded after a peaceful protest against police shootings became a nightmare. To a nation already stunned by live video of the aftermath of a fatal police shooting of a motorist in Minnesota, the Texas massacre was one more stunning blow.
Thu, 07 Jul 2016 11:00:00 -0700
Hillary Clinton’s been cleared of criminal wrongdoing in her use of email servers while Secretary of State, but that doesn’t mean Republicans -- or voters -- will let her off the hook. How the “extremely careless” charge could dog Clinton until November, coming up.
Wed, 06 Jul 2016 11:00:00 -0700

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 11:00:00 -0700
Hillary Clinton is leading Donald Trump in the polls and crushing him in fundraising. But the Donald is banking on a ‘Brexit Bounce’ that capitalizes on voters’ globalization fears.

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 11:00:00 -0700

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 11:00:00 -0700
Voters in other states are likely to clinch Hillary Clinton's nomination next Tuesday, even before the ballots are counted in California's Democratic primary. But polls show Bernie Sanders might win in the Golden State, providing momentum for influence at the Party convention this summer.

Barack Obama is the first sitting US President to visit Hiroshima.

Tue, 17 May 2016 11:00:00 -0700
If a city councilman voted against a new sports arena, would he be attacked because he's "a man?" We all know the answer. But, since five women council members voted that way in Seattle, they've been subjected to an onslaught of online attacks, leading to fear of violence -- because of their gender. Does that explain why so few women ever stand for election?
Mon, 16 May 2016 11:00:00 -0700
