Is California Ready for Assisted Death? Over the last decade supporters of right-to-die laws have proposed a series of bills, all of which were emphatically opposed by the powerful, statewide doctors association Now a new bill is stalled in the state Senate, but this time it might have a chance. The California Medical Association dropped its opposition to SB 128 which would allow doctors to provide terminally ill patients drugs that would help them hasten their death. That’s not to say the Association is in favor of this right to die bill.
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?
What happens when America retreats from the world? Is President Trump taking his "America First" agenda to extremes, withdrawing the country from the international stage on trade and climate change, distancing America from its traditional allies across the Atlantic and even threatening to physically isolate the country through the building of a wall along its southern border? León Krauze guest hosts.

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