US National Security in the Age of Trump
The War on Terror is over and yet the United States continues to fight in two nations. Democrats claim that the Bush administration’s national security policies made the nation less safe; Republicans criticize the Obama administration for stepping back from the aggressive national security posture that prevented attacks for eight years after 9/11. With the keen eye of a reporter who has filed stories from Iraq, Afghanistan, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and numerous European capitals, Hayes brings knowledge and experience to his presentation on international affairs and US national security.

2018 Mid-Term Elections
What do the battles on Capitol Hill reveal about the political fortunes of the two major political parties? Hayes answers these questions with the detailed knowledge of a political scientist and the on-the-trail experience of a veteran campaign reporter. His presentation combines an up-to-the-minute report on the most significant congressional races with an informative and entertaining look at American campaign and elections.
