In the second segment Zachary Wolfe, lawyer, activist, and professor at George Washington University joins the show to talk about what if anything new was learned about Trump Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh over the last days of Senate confirmation hearings, the staggering rate Trump has appointed judges to lower courts, and how social movements can organize to put pressure on judges.

In the third segment John Feffer, author and Director of Foreign Policy in Focus at the Institute for Policy Studies talks about a new US-Mexico trade agreement that has left Canada on the sidelines, ongoing US-North Korea negotiations, Kim Jong Un efforts to bolster economic development within North Korea, and Sunday's elections in Sweden.
