Part 1

We begin with the agreement reached today in Moscow between Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu and Vladimir Putin aimed at avoiding military clashes between Israel and Russia as Putin increases the deployment of weaponry and boots on the ground in Syria to support the besieged Assad regime. William Pomeranz, the Deputy Director of the Kennan Institute for Advanced Russian Studies at the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington D.C. joins us to discuss Israel’s concerns about transfers of the latest Russian weapons to Hezbollah and whether Putin will send Russian troops into battle against ISIS in Syria ahead of his address to the U.N. on September 28.

Part 2

Then we go to London to discuss explosive allegations in a new biography about the U.K.’s Prime Minister David Cameron written by the Conservative Party power broker Lord Ashcroft who accuses the Prime Minister of engaging in a sex act with a dead pig when Cameron was a student at Oxford University. Nico Hines, the London Editor of The Daily Beast joins us to discuss his article at The Daily Beast “David Cameron Accused of Sex Act With a Dead Pig” and whether this damning biography being serialized in the Daily Mail that revealed David Cameron’s alleged porcine proclivities, will hurt his party that rules parliament with a slim majority.

Part 3

Then finally we go to Iowa for an update on the primary campaigns from a rally for Jeb Bush and speak with David Redlawsk a polling expert and a Professor of Political Science at Rutgers University and a Fellow at the Harkin Institute at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. We discuss the latest polls released since the second Republican presidential debate last Wednesday that show Governor Scott Walker at less than 1%, forcing him to drop out of the race, but have Trump still in the lead although there are indications that Carly Fiorina is making an advancement from her earlier negligible polling.
