Assessing the fallout from today's terrorist massacre in Orlando, Florida. How ultimately compatible are Western Secular Democracies with certain aspects of Islam? Will the increasingly popular "Brexit" movement gain additional momentum in its push for increased national sovereignty in the UK? How well can the Left hold its "Diversity Coalition" together as it faces inevitable tensions between certain of its constituent components? We listen to Newt Gingrich criticize the dishonest Establishment Media as he predicts the beginning of "a new conversation" within the "gay rights movement." Also, could President Obama be angling to succeed Ban Ki-moon as Secretary-General of the United Nations? Might that explain Obama's active campaigning efforts on behalf of Hillary Clinton? Plus, we speculate on the pro-Trump "zeitgeist" of a 2016 "change election." Will Americans want more status quo -- or maybe actually something new this time around? With Listener Calls & Music via Neil Finn, Glenn Frey & Mukashi Kara Aru Basho.
