1-12-18 Nicole Sandler Show – Shithole Nation and Greg Palast Too

After an update on the day's news, including the president's calling out African nations, Haiti and El Salvador as "shithole" countries, I speak with investigative journalist Greg Palast about the GOP's latest efforts to keep us from voting Democratic. The newly updated version of Greg's movie, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy: The Case of the Stolen Election, is available now via Amazon (and you can stream for free with Amazon Prime).

7-5-17 Nicole Sandler Show – Voting Rights Under Fire with Greg Palast

Nicole attempts to get the facts behind the new "voter fraud commission" with the guy who's been telling us about Kris Kobach for years, independent investigative reporter Greg Palast. In a report published just as Greg came on the air with us today at The Progressive , Greg shows that even as 44 states say they won't cooperate with Kobach's request for voter data, at least 28 already have!

Trump sees dead voters

(via www.cartoonistgroup.com) When I opened my Los Angeles Times today, I spotted a letter written by someone I knew when I was a teeny tiny kid. He grew up to be awfully smart, as you'll see below. Trump has made much of how "voter fraud" (which is virtually non-existent) will hand the ("rigged!!!") presidential election over to Hillary because... everyone, but everyone, is conspiring against Don-Don. Everyone. In the whole wide world. (Reality check: Voter suppression is a much bigger problem than voter fraud.) As so many do, my very informed, very cool childhood friend set the Ignoramus in Chief straight. Here [...]

Healing the Planet… or Not

Nicole talks about the right wing outrage over Springsteen's performance of "Fortunate Son" at the Concert for Valor Tues night, and the rest of the right's disconnect with reality. Brad Friedman join in to recap the elections regarding voting machine/voter suppression effects on its outcome. Desi Doyen explains the climate agreement with China and the latest on the Keystone XL pipeline.

#RadioOrNot Exclusive: Disabled vet turned away for no voter ID in state not requiring IDs

This email was sent to me by a regular reader of mine, and will make your heads explode. Verbatim: First, I live in one of the Tea Party strongholds of the nation in Southern Delaware.. Yes Delaware is the home of Joe Biden, but the lower part of the state is not Biden country. Also, I am disabled US Army Paratrooper.. not combat disabled, instead I learned that you cannot fight gravity.. so I have spinal issues and non-combat PTSD from the injury. Which means I shut-in, and most of the time if you saw me you would probably think [...]

Voter ID, Schmoter ID: “You’d think GOP was organizing competitive kitten clubbings. Again.”

Another snark-filled guest post by the one, the only Will Durst: ONE MAN. ONE VOTE. Whiners. Bounders. Ingrates. Talking about the incessant griping and sniping currently buzzing over long overdue Republican reforms requiring citizens to produce a government issued ID before casting a vote. From the outcry you’d think the GOP was organizing competitive kitten clubbings. Again. Oh for crum’s sakes, settle down people. It’s just an ID. You need one to fly or buy or ply or even take out a library book. What is wrong with insuring the integrity of the electoral process? This isn’t voter suppression, it’s voter [...]

Voting rights gutted in #WI: “Judicially imposed chaos.”

Last night, Rachel Maddow laid out disturbing Wisconsin Voter ID Law details. Republicans resort to cheating, gerrymandering, and voter suppression because they have nothing to run on. They've been on the losing side of the issues, their congressional leaders rely on obstruction rather than legislation, and their state legislators and governors eliminate voting rights in order to eliminate Democratic voters. They continue to be the party of discrimination. Rachel: Wisconsin is a state that has never had a documented case of voter fraud by way of impersonation... That's the kind of voter fraud that would, conceivably, be put off, deterred, stopped by [...]

All the News The Corporate Media Doesn’t Deem You Fit to Know

As today's show ended, we were an hour away from the verdict in the Bradley Manning court martial.  I have no numbers to back this up, but I'd guess that if you took a poll of the American people, the vast majority would have no clue that the trial was even happening, let alone who Manning is or what he's accused of doing. I do believe people are responsible for their lack of knowledge; but in this case, the blame rests just as squarely on the shoulders of the corporate media who has a vested interest in controlling the messages [...]

It’s A Mad World

Listen to this episode: {play}http://traffic.libsyn.com/radioornot/20120913_Nicole_Sandler_Show_-_Mad_World.mp3 {/play} Podcast: Play in new window On days like this, I feel like crawling under the blankets and never coming out.  Although I regularly rail against idiocy and lies and question the opposite world  in which the obstructionists of progress reside, I'm at a loss to explain the insanity of religious zealots. So some idiot makes a low-budget, truly awful movie and posts it online. Go after that guy if you must, but to engage in riots and violence aimed at a country that had nothing to do with the production of said sorry piece [...]
