    Inside this year's crucial NATO summit

    Inside this year's crucial NATO summit

    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 dominate in eastern Ukraine. Christiane discusses all this and more with Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson. 

    Also on today's show: Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez; author Jason Stanley (How Fascism Works).

    The new reality taking shape in the US

    The new reality taking shape in the US

    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 clear: the Court is at odds with public opinion. According to a new poll conducted after Friday’s ruling, 59% of American adults disapprove of overturning Roe v. Wade. Dr. David Eisenberg believes he performed the last non-emergency abortion in the state of Missouri hours before Friday’s ruling and joins the show from St. Louis. 

    Also on today's show: Women's rights activist Ailbhe Smyth, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, Evangelical minister Rev. Robert Schenck.

    What dissolving parliament means for Israel

    What dissolving parliament means for Israel

    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. His political partner Lapid is set to take over until a new government is formed. Watching all this unfold is of course Benjamin Netanyahu, who hopes the collapse of the government means he can come back on top. Journalist and Bibi biographer Anshel Pfeffer joins the show to discuss. 

    Also on today's show: civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump and Nadia Hallgren, director of the new Netflix documentary Civil, in which Crump is profiled; lifelong Republican Sarah Longwell, co-founder of Defending Democracy Together and executive director of the Republican Accountability Project; Dr. Eric Topol, Professor of Molecular Medicine, Scripps Research.

Excellent show! Historian Heather Cox Richardson was very informative on why and how the US got to this obsessed gun culture or rather as she put it identity defined by guns.
