It's another busy Friday on the Nicole Sandler Show. In addition to all the breaking news, we have two great guests. Mother Jones' Ari Berman tells us the latest on the Trump administration's efforts to include a citizenship question in the 2020 Census and why it's such an awful idea. And Professor Harvey J Kaye joins in to explain the significance of Bernie Sanders' speech on Wednesday about Democratic Socialism and what it has to do with FDR. And in case you missed it, here's Bernie and his speech in its entirety.
Acting AG Matthew Whitaker is spending the day testifying before the House Judiciary Committee... we'll have some of the highlights (lowlights?)... Professor Harvey J. Kaye joins in to help wrap up the week with some final thoughts on the SOTU and the responses from Stacey Abrams and Bernie Sanders.
As the shutdown becomes the longest government shutdown in American history, today's guest Harvey J. Kaye reminds us what a real president was like. Today is the 75th Anniversary of FDR's 1944 SOTU address calling for a Second Bill of Rights - an Economic Bill of Rights for all Americans. He tells us all about it on today's show.
Nicole Sandler welcomes Professor and author Harvey J. Kaye back to the show at a time when things seem so dire to remind us of what this nation is capable of with a look back at FDR's Four Freedoms. Kaye will be hosting a night of films in that theme on TCM Monday 5/21, and tells us all about it.
As usual, we started the show with a review of the day's news. During today's Talk Media News update, Luke Vargas told us about a new report on extreme poverty and human rights from the UN. You can read that report here. Today we welcomed author and professor Harvey J. Kaye back to the show to talk about the Democrats past failures and what they can do to turn things around.
It's a busy Friday! We started the show with Jonathan Cohn of Huffington Post, who tells us about Trumpcare 3.0 and how it would take away protections for people with pre-existing conditions in his latest article, "New Health Care Bill Proves GOP Promises On Pre-Existing Conditions Were Never Serious." Then it was on to our old friend, professor and author Harvey J. Kaye, who has a must-read piece up at BillMoyers.com: "We Are Radicals at Heart — Don’t Forget It".
On today's show, Brit talks with guests - Steve Boone of The Lovin' Spoonfuland his new book, "Hotter Than a Match Head". Professor Harvey J. Kaye, author of "Fight for the Four Freedoms", joins Brit to discuss composer Aaron Copland's Fanfare for the Common man
I'm back! And so is Bernie Sanders. Quick... Bernie's first action as "outreach director" (or whatever other dumb title was given to him in Senate Dem leadership by Little Chuckie Schmuckie) is a big day of ACA rallies around the country. He's tasked Democratic members of Congress to organize events in their districts... but I live in Floriduh. So imagine my surprise when I called my congressman's office to find there IS an event scheduled here. Sunday, Jan 15, 2pm at the Sunrise Amphitheater.... about 10-15 minutes from my house. The following Saturday is the Women's March on Washington. I've [...]
I'm back. For now... Since I've been out for the past few Thursdays, we've been missing Harvey J. Kaye. So he joined me today for a quick visit. In hour two, Marijuana Policy Project's Director of Federal Policies, Robert Capecchi, told us about the DEA's decision to keep marijuana as a schedule 1 substance. The Silver Tour's Robert Platshorn joined in to tell us about tomorrow's one day picket of Publix, whose founder's heir donated $800 million to the campaign to defeat Amendment 2, the medical marijuana amendment on the ballot Nov 8. If you're in South Florida, come [...]
I was going to be here yesterday. I really was. But the visit with the pulmonologist shook me out of my optimistic outlook and scared the shit out of me. The mass on my lung, unearthed by the x-ray of my heart on Thursday night is, according to the doctor, "large." He said we need to find out what it it. No shit! The next step is a PET-CT scan. Now we wait for United Healthcare to approve it. And we wait. As of today, when David called the office, the government-sanctioned extortionists have all the information. We should [...]
