    The United Nations General Assembly is in session. All of the world's leaders have gathered to hash out global issues such as climate change.  Unfortunately for some Russian delegates, their visas were blocked. Caleb Maupin, a political analyst, reports the events taking place at the UN Headquarters in New York City.

    Boris Johnson has made it clear that he respects, but strongly disagrees with the Supreme Court ruling the Parliament suspension is illegal. Ian Shilling, a native of the United Kingdom and a geopolitical analyst, explains what happens next.  Mark Sleboda, an international relations analyst, gives his take on the ruling.

    Saudi Arabia and the United States have recruited leaders at the UN to blame Iran for the attack on Saudi's oil fields.  Gareth Porter, an investigative historian, discusses his article, "Why Evidence of Iran’s Role in Attack Doesn’t Matter."
