6-30-17 Nicole Sandler Show – How Far We’ve Fallen

In the last 24 hours alone, Donald Trump endorsed the repeal of ACA with no replacement, Kris Kobach’s voter suppression commission demands voter data from states (1 by 1 they’re saying no), the WSJ report says Michael Flynn may have been part of effort to get Clinton's deleted emails from Russian hackers,   Joe Scarborough and Mika Brezezinski say Trump used the National Enquirer to blackmail them, and the  House Appropriations Committee passed an amendment put forth by Barbara Lee to end the 2001 AUMF- now it goes on to full House & Senate. It's our last show before the 4th of [...]

5-19-16 Nicole Sandler Show – The Democratic Divide

The more the Democratic Party pushes back against the Sanders campaign, the more determined his supporters are to fight on until the end. Howie Klein returns to the show in hour two today to talk about the Democratic leadership waging war on Progressives. In the first hour, Nicole opens the phone lines to get your take on what happened in Vegas and the Democratic party divide.

The Bernie Beat @ Radio or Not

  With gratitude to the inspirational Gliberal Goddesses and chorale of awesome members of The Thundering Herd in Nicole's rocking Live Chat Room this week, we happily present the first of a weekly-ish post and thread dedicated to Vermont's Progressive pride and joy ... Mssr. Bernie Sanders. Or as we local yokels fondly think of him, our Rumpled Savior -- in the Clueless, Useless, God-Damned United States Senate, in the eye of the Great Swamp -- and, depending on how the Santa-Hillary Winds blow, taking his spot upon the 2016 primary bench on our side of the aisle and  right [...]

The House is in Play, or So They Say

  I got an email this morning from the Progressive Change Campaign Committee that proclaimed "Democrats now have a 74% chance of winning back the House, according to the Princeton Election Consortium.  Progressives are running in some of the tightest races." I'll take that both with a grain of salt and as good news to rally around.  So, this morning, I called on my pal Howie Klein of Down With Tyranny and the Blue America PAC to give a rundown of some of the races in which progressives (or, in some cases, worthy Democrats) have a shot at winning.  Not [...]

How to Fix the Mess We’re In

Listen to this episode: {play}http://traffic.libsyn.com/radioornot/20120807_Nicole_Sandler_Show_.mp3 {/play} Podcast: Play in new window   Today is election day in Washington state and Michigan.  The woman pictured above is Darcy Burner, she's running from Washington's 1st district, and we need her in Congress. Today is the last day to get your ballots in. If you're in Michigan, I can recommend votes for Lance Enderle in the 8th District and Trevor Thomas in the 3rd. If we want to end these senseless wars once and for all and bring all that money home, we need to elect more progressives to Congress. If we want [...]

Heroes and Villains

This morning on the show, I spoke with a couple of heroes and about a couple of villains. Let's begin with the good guys.  His schedulers must have screwed up, but Congressman Raul Grijalva did call in near the end of the first hour of the show.  Better late than never! Grijalva is the co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus; they released their Budget 4 All to zero fanfare or media attention.  But it demands a look as, once again, it makes sense and is the best thing out there! In the second hour, I was joined by another of [...]

The Solution To Our Problems

Want Medicare for All? Vote Progressive.  Want to end the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq? (Yes, we're still in Iraq.) Vote Progressive.  Want to end the big oil subsidies?  Vote Progressive. Want to encourage the development of clean energy? Vote Progressive.  Want our kids to have access to quality, public education? Vote progressive?  Want fair labor laws?  Vote Progressive.  Want gender and race equality?  Vote Progressive.  Want respect for teachers?  Vote Progressive.  And on and on and on we could go. Honestly.  If you wonder why we had to settle for shitty health care "reform" instead of single payer Medicare [...]

On Progressives Candidates, Komen and Chatting Made Easier

I've been busy getting our new chatroom up and running...  If you registered today here on the website, you might have to re-register tomorrow using the chat registration.  But after that, we're done! In the first hour of the show, I was joined by Howie Klein of Down With Tyranny and the Blue America PAC, talking about the need to elect real progressives to office, and a few of them who are worthy of your votes and donations! In hour two - as we do every Monday - I was joined by Nicole Belle of Crooks and Liars for our [...]
