😑😑😑😑This whole immigration thing is crazy because Republicans want to enforce a policy but when it goes negative they blame on the Democrats GTFOOH! People just don't know the history of a "Get Tough Policy," normally end in some type of reform. An example is when the Republicans of the Nixon Era "Got Tough on Drugs," now: as in present day, we are decriminalized drugs and more...😑😑😑😑

Chase Price: No Isreal didn't find any bombs. What was displayed by Iseral had been show years ago. This was used to broker a deal with Iran under President Obama. The WH knew this when they put it out. The next day at the press briefing lying eyes SHS told a reporter there was a typo. And that the notice from Iseral (that the WH put out to bolster their reasoning for stepping out of the Iran Deal) should have been HAD not HAS info on Iran's capability. Again what we have is an lazy imbecile in the Oval Office. It will take strong political Savvy countries to keep the deal viable.

Sadle May Friedman Ok let me explain again. I believe you were referring to the video that Israel showed just before the Iran deal was scrapped. The video Israel showed was from mid-2000. Displaying faluse info that Israel head manufactured. This was the sole purpose for Israel to condemned Iran. Iran was adhering to the Iran deal under President Obama. This video was put out before the dumpster scrap the Deal. The journalists at the briefing a day after the video appeared pushed back on lying eyes SHS about the this old video. The dumpter had tweeted that the video was proof that Iran HAS nuclear weapons. When lying eyes SHS was at the podium she said that the word HAS in the tweet was a typo. It should have been HAD nuclear weapons. The point is the video an dumpster's tweet was to solidify his reasoning for scrapping the Iran deal. If you or anyone else thinks that the deal was a mistake, then U'al do not understand why it was brokered. Remember the US wasn't the only country who sat down to hash out the details. The negotiations where to stop the pile up of weapons by Iran. They had been abiding by the deal. Now the US has reneged on that. This whole shambles by the dumpster wasn't about the nuclear weapons. But dumpsters desire to show his power over Obama's Legacy. The complete influence for Israel is directly from Kushner, Ivana and the Kushner family. I hope that paints a clear picture of my original statement. I was responding to your original comment which indeed mentioned bombs.

Sadle May Friedman what you're saying doesn't make any sense. I didn't say they found a bomb but they had intelligence working inside and discovered they were continuing the progress of nuclear weapons. the Iran deal was a bad deal. whether or not we should have backed out is another story but it sure as hell should not have been made in the first place.

You forgot to mention that Isreali intelligence uncovered Iran's continuous development of nuclear weapons even after the Iran deal. That's part of why trump chose to disband the deal now!

And now you're surprised the FBI is so inept! They must have spent millions of tax payer $$ to figure out Russia bought ads on Facebook! smh

Casey Malone My friend, I have a different point of think. Looking at the current Administration it has cost the US billions (personally). They have not been in the WH for 2 yrs. We as taxpayer's are footing enormous funds for dumpster and his Entourage to fly back an forth to Florida. Someone only need to look at the waste, fraud and other scandals. What may or not have happened in the FBI or DOJ, CIA, etc. has legal recourse. I'm thinking that a INDEPENDENT ACCOUNTING FIRM should be hired to go through each department. What I'm witnessing since this Administration came to town is that they think thy are part of a Royal Family. What I don't understand is that Congress an Senate (repukecans) refuse to stop this drain on taxpayer's. So much for their rebel call for BALANCED BUDGET and conservative. I've watched politics since a very early age. Which is to say the United States is going to have a complete collapse. Thing's are bushing the USA into a Civil War on many levels. Just saying. Thanks.

Casey Malone Are you a Russian bot, Casey? And if you claim you're not, how can I possibly believe you?

Are you serious? Is this NPR? LISTEN to your shock and dismay! So, we indict Russians for stirring up distrust in our political system, yet we do NOTHING when it is fully disclosed that the DNC lied to its party about its absolute crime of selling out to Clinton and burying the betrer candidate in Sanders. AND, the big news here is that Russians bought ad space on facebook! The Russians are 100% correct in their understanding of US politics! I hope their investment was the straw that broke the Democrats back. Thank you Russia! The hypocrisy in this story is blinding! The CIA murders anyone that stands in the way of the US chosen candidate in countries all over the world. NPR. So very disappointed.

This is definitely tilted left, so, in order to stay center, go listen to something that tilts right. I would reccomend the Ben Shapiro Show. He is a Harvard educated lawyer originally and now does political commentary.

NPR politics is a good podcast for keeping up on the political landscape. They don't get lost in the weeds of politics and do a decent job painting the big picture. My only complaint is while the hosts try their best to present a balanced and unbiased description of events, it's evident that the show leans slightly left/center-left on the political spectrum. They handle it well though, and they are certainly engaging in journalism, not punditry, and show the other side pretty fairly so this can be forgiven. It's one of my favorite political podcasts.

I'm a long time listener to NPR and enjoyed previous editions of this show. This version seems light on facts and heavy on cuteness. For example, how about getting some facts into the podcast such as a serious discussion that included defining democratic socialism, instead of popular theme songs from fictional TV dramas and repeating (again, and again) that Americans don't understand the term. It's no wonder we are confused with this kind of cutesy coverage.

I'm still frustrated that NPR cancelled it's all politics in favor of this type of show. NPR seems to think that the best way to appeal to young listeners it to treat them as if they have the intelligence of a fifth grader. I AM a young listener and this podcast, made in the same patronizing tone as Planet Money, is insulting. Ron Elving is the only highlight of the show, bringing his trademark whit and incisiveness which made IAP so great. BRING BACK IAP.

NPRs old "it's all politics" had something. Ken and Ron felt like two old journalists that had seen everything and could give an objective/light hearted take on the situation. This is not that. This feels like a group of moderately liberal, political enthusiasts at a coffee shop having a good time. Instead of objectivity, we can hear the bias slip through. Hilary Clinton's issues are talked about with sadness, sadness at her failure to be a better candidate. While Rubio is talked about as an idiot for claiming a philosophy degree makes less than a welder. Ron attempts to talk about it objectively but one person can only bring so much objectivity to an amateur journalist chat. Fox News assuredly started the death of true journalism, but it seems every news agency wants to make sure it's truly in the ground.
