The Struggle for Life as a Lone Wolf OR-7 is the official designation of the first wolf in the wilds of California in almost 90 years. He crossed over from Oregon a month ago, apparently in search of a mate, but the going has not been easy. An electronic tracking collar has followed him for 1000 miles, but recently he's been staying in the same place, somewhere in Lassen County northeast of Sacramento. We hear more about the reintroduction of an endangered species with the power to help restore its ecosystem, and about the magic of seeing a wolf in the wild.
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
Terrorism and tweets, hate speech and murder Just days before an election, Britain is coping with a rash of deadly terrorism, and Prime Minister Theresa May is on the defensive. And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city. One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?

We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
