Episode #5707

KQED 9: Fri, Aug 18, 2017 -- 7:30 PM

Every once in a while, an event strikes at the core of American society. The Charlottesville, Virginia protest that turned into a violent melee is one of those defining moments.
*White nationalists gathered for the "Unite the Right" rally ostensibly to protect a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. However, over the course of two days, tiki torch-carrying participants shouted racist and anti-Semitic messages and clashed with counter-protestors. It made people question America's values. It sparked debates about racism, anti-Semitism, justice, and the power to conquer hate. It united a community in song to honor the people killed. And it tested America's leaders.
*President Trump's initially tepid response turned into a week of equivocation about who was to blame. Business leaders bolted from White House jobs councils. Some Republicans distanced themselves from the president. But everyone was united in condemnation of the hate groups who started the violence.
*The hatred the nation saw in Charlottesville did not begin with Charlottesville. It will not end with Charlottesville either.
*Robert Costa will discuss what led to the violence in Charlottesville, how elected officials responded and where America goes next with:
*Geoff Bennett of NPR
*Shawna Thomas of VICE News
*Michael Scherer of TIME Magazine
*Molly Ball of The Atlantic

Episode #5706

KQED 9: Fri, Aug 11, 2017 -- 7:30 PM

Tensions escalated between the United States and North Korea after U. S. intelligence agencies assessed North Korea has successfully miniaturized a nuclear warhead that could fit on a missile capable of reaching Chicago. President Trump warned Kim Jong-un of the "fire and fury" the United States would unleash if his government continues its nuclear posturing and said the U.S. military solutions are "locked and loaded." North Korean military leaders dismissed the warning as a "load of nonsense" and threatened to launch missiles at the American territory of Guam, home of the B-1 bombers the Pentagon would potentially use to attack North Korea's missile sites.
*Secretary of State Rex Tillerson defended the president's message and said North Korea is not an imminent threat. But Defense Secretary James Mattis released a statement amplifying the president's warning telling Pyongyang to halt its arms program. While the administration insists it is "speaking with one voice," the mixed messages raise the question -- who's advising the president on foreign policy?
* Robert Costa will discuss the options being considered to de-escalate the nuclear standoff between the United States and North Korea with:
*Alexis Simendinger of Real Clear Politics
*Yeganeh Torbati of Reuters
*Nancy Youssef of BuzzFeed News
*Michael Duffy of TIME Magazine

President Trump turned his attention to issues that rally his conservative base - immigration and affirmative action - after last week's failure to move forward with health care reform in the Senate.
*New polls show the president's approval rating reaching new lows, and tensions flared between President Trump and Republicans in Congress.
*His own party voted to check his power to lift Russian sanctions, and Republicans are discussing ways to work around the White House on health care.
