ABC This Week
Sen. Rand Paul goes one-on-one with ABC News Chief Global Affairs Correspondent Martha Raddatz about President Obama’s national security speech, the IRS investigation and more, Sunday on “This Week.”

In the first major foreign policy speech of his second term, President Obama defended his administration’s efforts to pursue terrorists overseas, while outlining his strategy for a “new phase” in the fight against terrorism. Did President Obama’s plans to limit the use of drone strikes go far enough for his critics? How will Congress respond to his renewed calls to close the detainee prison at Guantanamo Bay? Sen. Rand Paul responds, Sunday on “This Week.”

And in a “This Week” exclusive, retired Gen. John Allen, former commander of international forces in Afghanistan, speaks out for the first time since being cleared in the Petraeus investigation. On this Memorial Day weekend, Allen discusses the fallout from the Petraeus scandal, as well as the deteriorating situation in Iraq, the ongoing fight in Afghanistan, and the battle against sexual assault in the military.

Plus, two powerhouse roundtables tackle all the week’s politics, from the national security debate to continued fallout over the IRS scandal to progress on immigration reform. Rep. Peter King, DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz former Director of National Intelligence Ret. Admiral Dennis Blair; New York Times national security correspondent Mark Mazzetti; ABC News Senior National Correspondent and Fusion White House Correspondent Jim Avila and Politico senior political reporter Maggie Haberman debate those topics and more, Sunday on “This Week.”

And in this week’s “Sunday Spotlight,” the creators and executive producers of Showtime’s “Homeland”Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon discuss their hit show.

We will also cover what is going on down in Oklahoma in the wake of the tornado. Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin has been out front all week and she is going to be with us on Sunday.

We'll talk with Chief Climatologist for Climate Central Dr. Heidi Cullen, TIME Magazine senior editor of science and technology Jeffrey Kluger, David Bernard, who is the Chief Meteorologist from WFOR, and Marshall Shepherd, President of the American Meteorological Society.

Bush, respectively. We want to get their take on how the White House is handling all these scandals in Washington.

Melissa Harris Perry Show

Virginia is for lovers… and radical right wing candidates geared up to run in the state’s upcoming elections for governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general! On Sunday’s Melissa Harris-Perry, we’ll discuss the lack of continuity between the Republican candidates picked to run in the state’s upcoming races and the moderate political climate we have seen emerge in Virginia as of the last two presidential elections. Host Melissa Harris-Perry will be joined by none other than MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki, host of Up with Steve Kornacki. He will help us break down the politics behind the nominations of Ken Cuccinelli, E.W. Jackson and Mark Obenshain. (See Harris-Perry’s open letter to Jackson from Saturday’s show.)

Harris-Perry will also revisit the issue of hunger in America, spotlighting the recent Congressional moves that could literally take food off of tables by decreasing funds for SNAP and limiting who will be eligible to receive these benefits.

Last week, Professor Harris-Perry offered advice to the Class of 2013. She will be highlighting younger students who are taking their futures into their own hands by protesting education budget cuts in Chicago and Philadelphia. She will be joined by nine-year old Asean Johnson–who eloquently voiced his anger at a Chicago Teachers Union rally earlier this week–and Sharron Snyder, a student at Benjamin Franklin High School in Philadelphia, who took part in a mass student walk out earlier this month. (See Asean’s emotional speech below.)

Lastly, #nerdland will debut a new segment Sunday about headlines that just make us shake our heads. Be sure to check it out and see what made us throw up our hands in the newsroom this week.

Be sure to read what we’ve linked above, and watch Melissa Harris-Perry Sunday at 10 a.m. EST on MSNBC! Also, don’t forget to join us on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #nerdland.
