I’ll Be Back Monday — I hope!

If you heard yesterday’s show, you know that I’m not feeling well. The good news is that I went to the doctor this morning and it’s not pneumonia! That was my main concern after being hospitalized for a week a few years back with an ugly case of it. It’s a sinus infection with bronchitis, so I’m on antibiotics, an inhaler, and orders of plenty of fluids and rest. I have been burning the candle at both ends – doing this show each day and working with Randi Rhodes to get our new studios up and running, moving all my [...]

6-21-16 Nicole Sandler Show – Gun-Nation

Last night, Congress proved themselves incapable of taking care of the nation's business in an adult manner. Four amendments were brought to the floor, all with various levels of restrictions on gun purchases by people who should not be allowed near a firearm, let alone own one. All four went down to defeat. I'm battling bronchitis, so probably shouldn't have come on the air at all today, but I couldn't let those votes go by without talking about the travesty. Vote out all the bums. If you'd like to see who the bad guys are you can start with Sen [...]

6-20-16 Nicole Sandler Show – Is This Thing On?

We took our virgin voyage in the new studio this morning. Aside from a few technical glitches that were to be expected and a nasty chest cold that took residence in my lungs this weekend, we made it! Things will only get better from here on out. I'll spend much of today setting up the YouTube streaming so we have graphics and fewer problems, though some issues will have to wait until our engineer returns from vacation at the end of the week to fix. My friend Cliff Schecter took some time out from his vacation to join me to [...]

6-15-16 Nicole Sandler Show – FloriDUH and other American Mistakes

As if this wasn't a bad enough week in Florida - from the murder of The Voice singer Christina Grimmie in Orlando Friday night, to the massacre at the Pulse nightclub Saturday night, and last night we learned that a two-year old toddler was grabbed by an alligator at a "lake" at the Walt Disney World Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. Unfortunately, while this state struggles with these tragedies, the people tasked with running the state continuing to prove they're unfit for office. Take Governor Rick Scott, please. Seriously. This moron refused to even acknowledge that the club where 49 souls [...]

6-14-16 Nicole Sandler Show – What the World Needs Now

Can we take the temperature down a few notches please? I logged into the Radio or Not chat room this morning only to see one semi-regular chatter going on and on about the massacre in Orlando being a "false flag" operation. And the kicker was her subsequent comment that after "watching the videos" she's convinced that Sandy Hook was too. Others in the YouTube chat went ballistic when I played a bit of Samantha Bee's powerful and spot-on commentary from last night's show about the murders in Orlando because "she supports HRC." Newsflash, if you have no use for anyone [...]

6-13-16 Nicole Sandler Show – Time for Action

The unthinkable happened again this weekend. A crazy person who should never have been allowed anywhere near a gun was allowed to "legally" purchase a weapon of war and a handgun, went to a gay club in Orlando and opened fire, killing at least 50 people and injuring at least 53 others. Our regular Monday morning guest Joel Silberman was back today with a unique perspective on this madness as a gay man who's working with Bob Poe, a candidate running for Congress from Orlando (FL 10), who announced he's HIV positive on Thursday of last week. I mentioned my [...]

6-10-16 Nicole Sandler Show – Election Integrity – Fact or Fraud with Fitrakis

    There's something fishy in California, where there are still somewhere in the neighborhood of 2.5 million outstanding votes not yet counted, and there were many millions more who complained that they were either purged from the voter roles, their ballots had no presidential choices or encountered other issues and were given provisional ballots, not knowing when or even if their votes will be counted. Welcome to the voting system in "the greatest nation in the world™"! On March 27, two election integrity activist attorneys from Ohio participated in an event with the Institute for American Democracy and Election [...]
