NATO leaders are gathered in Madrid for the most consequential meeting in the organization’s history. The summit kicked off by enlarging the alliance, giving Putin more NATO, not less: when Sweden and Finland become NATO member states, it will lengthen Russia’s border with the alliance by 800 miles. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg says this move proves Putin is failing – but danger remains as Russian forces continue to domi...

Two Americas – that is the new reality taking shape in the US. The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the constitutional right to abortion on Friday has already triggered bans in at least 10 states, with several more expected to follow soon. Others, by contrast – like California, Washington and Oregon – have vowed to protect women’s health and their rights. Demonstrators on both sides have taken to the streets, but one thing is c...

Fatal flooding has killed more than 100 people in Bangladesh and India, while a dramatic heatwave spanning Europe is causing wildfires in Spain. Extreme weather like this will only become more common and more severe as the world drags its heels on climate change. As you might expect, it’s been a trying time to lead the world’s climate efforts, and for the last six years that’s been the job of Patricia Espinosa, the United Nations’ ...

Israel is preparing for the arrival of President Joe Biden next month, but suddenly a change of plans: Prime Minister Naftali Bennett will no longer be the one to host the American leader. Instead, it’ll likely be a new prime minister, the current foreign minister Yair Lapid. That’s because after one year heading a diverse coalition, Bennett announced he’s dissolving parliament following a series of defections from his own party. H...

Today America marks Juneteenth with a federal holiday, commemorating the emancipation of enslaved African Americans. And once again, the values at the heart of Juneteenth – freedom and equality – are in sharp focus in this country, not long after the racist massacre in Buffalo and at a time when inflation is likely to further entrench racial inequality. To reflect on all this, academic and author Carol Anderson joins the program.

It’s a pretty astonishing claim: a sitting president was not only indifferent to the safety of his own loyal vice president, but his behavior actually helped cause the threat. Donald Trump’s pressure campaign to overturn the 2020 election was the focus of the latest January 6 hearings, and the committee says his actions directly contributed to the attack that endangered Mike Pence, who was rushed to safety as the riots unfolded. 17...

The global economy is in uncharted territory, and where it goes next is anybody’s guess. Raging inflation, the soaring costs of gas and food are plaguing consumers in America and around the world. The US Federal Reserve took its most aggressive move in decades on Wednesday, hiking the interest rate 75 basis points to try to rein in the rising prices. Just today the Bank of England also raised rates. But will the rate hike be the cu...

President Biden defended his record on inflation today, blaming Republicans for derailing his vision for rebuilding the economy. But as inflation hit 8.6% in May, gas prices soared above $5 nationwide, and stocks sank into a bear market, the White House message isn’t breaking through to Americans. A CNN ‘poll of polls’ shows Biden’s approval ratings below 40%, and a new Quinnipiac University poll found just 28% of Americans approve...

Donald Trump knew he lost the election, yet conned millions of Americans into thinking there was fraud and that he was the rightful victor. That’s the allegation laid out publicly today by the January 6 committee. The proof put forward came from Trump’s own advisers and former attorney general, who said they told Trump they did not see any evidence of fraud that could change the election outcome. Joining the show to discuss are Nor...
