8-10-17 Nicole Sandler Show – Activists and Change

Nicole speaks with the Roosevelt Institute's Mike Konczal about his Vox.com article, "Who’s truly rebuilding the Democratic Party? The activists." Then Down With Tyranny and the Blue America PAC's Howie Klein joins in. We talked about Ted Lieu's endorsement of Randy Bryce, veterans who are running for office, and more progressive politics.

8-9-17 Nicole Sandler Show – NK Nuke Insanity & the Democratic Divide

  Today we delved into the madness surrounding North Korea and its nuclear weapons program, and D'ump's reaction to it. I read a piece from The Nation that informed me that the president can unilaterally launch a nuclear bomb without approval of Congress or anyone else. Please read it and share widely! David Atkins, contributor to Washington Monthly, joined me to discuss one of his columns: "Bernie, Kamala, and the Left's War of Mutually Assured Destruction" which highlights the latest divide among the political left and which must be fixed if we're to get ourselves out of this Trump dump.

6-16-17 Nicole Sandler Show – What the World Needs Now

Today I'm joined by Gaius Publius who wrote at Down with Tyranny about our collapsing social contract. Kelly Carlin was supposed to be on today's show, but had to postpone due to a death in her family. We'll reschedule as soon as possible. In the meantime, check out the webinar she'll be hosting beginning next Wednesday!

4-26-17 Nicole Sandler Show – 100 Days of Resistance with John Nichols

Trump today introduced his tax plan, which would cut corporate and small business rates down to 15%, repeal the Alternative Minimum Tax for individuals and otherwise enrich the wealthy and hurt the struggling... Did you expect anything less? Many experts say this plan could cost upwards of $6 trillion! The GOP-led FCC started the ball rolling on reversing the Net Neutrality rules... start paying attention! D'ump signed an Executive Order calling for a "review" of our national monuments, with the goal of reversing the many lands that President Obama had designated as national monuments in order to protect them from [...]

4-20-17 Nicole Sandler Show – Bernie in da House

  I had to take the day off, but I spent the previous night in Miami, listening to the man who should be president, Bernie Sanders speak truth. So I thought I'd share his remarkable speech with you today...

4-13-17 Nicole Sandler Show – Mother Fu&ker

Today, the "US" dropped the MOAB (Mother of all Bombs) - the largest non-nuclear bomb ever deployed in Afghanistan, ostensibly against ISIS-K. Of course, they tell us that they "took every precaution to avoid civilian casualties." Of course they did, like they did in this airstrike in Syria (that the administration has been silent about) that hit Syrian allies and killed 18 people! As a bit of a lighthearted diversion, I invited my Facebook page to weigh in with their favorite euphemism for "Trump." As you know, I prefer the contraction of Donald Trump - D'ump. But there were some great [...]

3-2-17 Nicole Sandler Show – All Yopps Needed

It's Thursday, so Howie Klein is here today. We spoke a bit about his post, "The Type of Democrats We Need... And the Type We Don't." While we don't need Blue Dogs, New Dems or politicians by any other name who continue to vote with the Republicans. But the Dems only need to flip 24 seats in 2018 to take back the House, which is incredibly do-able. You can find the most progressive candidates on the Blue America page and help support them, and stay involved. It's going to take every one of us. That's why I started the show [...]

1-12-17 Nicole Sandler Show – Questions & Answers and Howie Klein Returns

For a president-elect who wouldn't answer questions from the press in six months (his last presser was July 27!), Donald Trump is making us dizzy with with the number of confirmation hearings all scheduled at the same time. Can you say "he doesn't want us to hear the answers"? There were a few wonderful moments, like this from Elizabeth Warren while questioning Ben Carson, who's nominated for Secretary of Housing and Urban Development... Have I said lately that this is going to be a long four years? Howie Klein is back!!  In addition to blogging at Down with Tyranny and [...]
