7-10-19 Nicole Sandler Show -Stacked Courts, Endless Wars in Trump’s America

   It's a busy Wednesday with lots of news to deal with. First, a hearing yesterday in the 5th circuit court of appeals on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act seemed to go in Trump's direction. Ian Millhiser of Think Progress and author of "Injustices" about the Supreme Court, was there and fills us in on what happened. Plus, we'll ask about today's judgement throwing out an emoluments suit for lack of standing. Then, do you know where the candidates stand on foreign policy? Win Without War Executive Director Stephen Miles weighs on on Iran, Yemen, North Korea [...]

“Today is the day the political news media lost its mind”

Twitter lost its mind yesterday, in part because the political news media lost theirs, as you can see if you take a few minutes to watch the segment below from The Last Word. I spent hours batting away Trump trolls and even fellow Democrats who came up with every conspiracy theory you can imagine (and some you can't) about Hillary Clinton's health. I'm not a huge fan of some of Hillary's policies, but I'll be damned if I'll entertain such idiocy. "Idiocy?" you ask. Yes, idiocy. Here's one example of a message I got from someone I ended up unfollowing [...]

“I don’t think [Trump] just flunked, I think he crashed and burned spectacularly”

Last night on MSNBC's The Last Word, Lawrence O'Donnell and his guests discussed the fiasco known as Donald Trump. Take 6 minutes to confirm your worst fears about Trump and how he spectacular flunked the commander in chief test: Donald Trump says if Vladimir Putin says good things about him, he'll say good things about him. Pulitzer prize-winning journalist David Cay Johnston & Naval War College professor Tom Nichols react. Tom Nichols, a conservative, had this to say about Disastous Don-Don's continuing descension into sub-ignorant depths: "I don't think he just flunked, I think he crashed and burned spectacularly. We've gotten used to [...]

Dallas Morning News recs Hillary, Trump wrecks GOP (VIDEO)

The Dallas Morning News hasn't endorsed a Democrat for president in 75 years, since before World War II in fact. That changed today with their surprise endorsement of Hillary Clinton. And that's a big deal, considering what's at stake. As the Los Angeles Times put it: "Texas has long been a stronghold for Republicans, and it is a must-win state for Trump." Yikes. Or as former Texas governor Rick Perry once put it: Or as many of us who have read the endorsement have put it: Here's an excerpt (bolding mine): Trump's values are hostile to conservatism. He plays on fear — [...]

“‘Dither’ is the Republican word for “think” (VIDEO)

On "The Last Word," there was a segment devoted to how President's Obama is trying to deal with ISIS, including his order for an airstrike on terrorists in Somalia (see video above). Naturally, the names John McCain and Lindsey Graham were inserted into the conversation, because what would criticism of the president be without mention of war hawks like Grampy McBombBomb and his sidekick L'il Lindsey? Or someone else whose name rhymes with Schmee Schmouble-U Schmush?  Lawrence O'Donnell: "We're also living in the aftermath of the complete lack of a George W. Bush long term strategy for what it meant for the United States of America to invade, occupy, take [...]

Mitt Foreign Policy Fail

Listen to this episode: {play}http://traffic.libsyn.com/radioornot/20120919_Nicole_Sandler_Show_-_The_Problems_with_Mitt.mp3 {/play} Podcast: Play in new window   I had my fun yesterday with Mitt Romney's comment condemning almost half of Americans as moochers, deadbeats and drags on society.  Today I turn my attention towards Mitt's foreign policy blunders. The same guy who offended our closest ally while in England for the Olympics and continued to show his lack of diplomatic chops while abroad stuck his foot so far in his mouth during the "secret tape" that it's a wonder he hasn't deep-throated his whole leg yet. A few of my key take-aways from the foreign [...]
