FROM Chris Cosentino
The Latest Food Fight in Sacramento More than one hundred of California's best known chefs are lobbying in Sacramento for repeal of a law passed more than seven years ago. It banned the sale of foie gras from geese and ducks force fed to make their livers much fatter than normal. Foie gras means "fatty liver." The ban will go into effect on July 1 of this year. We hear conflicting perspectives.
Is the threat from Russia missing from the Russia meddling probe? There's much being made about the Trump administration's possible ties with Russia. But the bottom line is Russia's effort to influence American democracy. Do the President and his aides care enough to take action before voters go back to the polls?
What is Trump's plan for Middle East peace? On his first foreign tour, President Trump has promised "peace" between Israel and the Palestinians. Are there any details for re-starting talks that have been stalled for the past three years?
What happens when America retreats from the world?
