It’s Emptywheel Friday on the Nicole Sandler Show 3-1-24

   Friday was always my favorite day of the week, and now even more so since we started spending Friday's shows with Marcy Wheeler of emptywheel.net. Having a tough time keeping all of the Trump trials straight? Somehow, Marcy stays on top of it all. Each week she answers whatever questions I throw at her, and she does it without consulting notes or quick searches. She just covers it all and somehow is able to speak off the cuff about it. Today, we'll talk about the Supreme Court's decision to take up TFG's immunity defense, Hunter Biden's closed door [...]

Leap Day Thursday with Howie Klein (the buh bye Moscow Mitch edition) – Nicole Sandler Show 2-29-24

       Big news broke yesterday while we were on the air - and I missed it! I didn't see that the Supreme Court finally announced their decision to hear TFG's appeal regarding his ridiculous claims of absolute immunity. So we'll deal with that at the start of the show - and really get into it on Friday's show when Marcy Wheeler is here. The other big news from yesterday was Mitch McConnell's announcement that he'll step down as Senate Minority Leader in November (but will remain in his senate seat). That's something we'll discuss with Howie Klein [...]

She’s a Badass, He’s Just an Ass – Nicole Sandler Show 2-28-24

       **Programming note of frustration. The long-awaited news from the Supreme Court about TFG's appeal of the DC  Circuit Court decision agreeing with the lower court that he has no immunity came down about 20 minutes in to the show today. But because it was live, I didn't see the emailed alert until the show ended. Apparently a couple of people posted it in the YouTube chat room, but I only see a fraction of what's posted during the show. So I missed it. I really do need to hire a producer. We'll deal with it tomorrow... [...]

Can’t Say You Did Nazi This Coming with Jordan Green- Nicole Sandler Show 2-27-24

     There's a meme making the rounds  featuring a photo of some Trumper idiot with a swastika and the text "I did Nazi this coming" ...to which I call Bullshit. The Nazis made their presence known in an unmistakable manner in Charlottesville. They regularly display their flags in Florida at Disney World, no less. Just two weekends ago, they marched on Music City, Nashville. Jordan Green, investigative reporter for Raw Story, spent months investigating a heinous group of teenagers who recruit even younger (white) kids to indoctrinate them nice and early. For his troubles, he's been stalked, threatened [...]

It’s F%@cking Monday and We Have the F%@king News- Nicole Sandler Show 2-26-24

Grrr, it's Monday already. I try to escape from the real world on weekends so make an effort to avoid all news if possible. That makes Mondays even worse, as I start early catching up. Thankfully, Jonathan Larsen is here each Monday to share his reporting and tell us what went on while I was pretending nothing was happening... Jonathan writes a daily substack to share his work with you. Subscribe at thefuckingnews.substack.com. Plus, I ventured out in to the world of AZ politics this weekend and it was a pleasant surprise! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ba1yck9sgQw&t=209s

Thursdays with Howie Klein – Nicole Sandler Show 2-22-24

     Howie Klein, the man behind DownWithTyranny and the Blue America PAC joins me every Thursday for some plain talk about politics. In election years, like this one, we talk a lot about specific races -- many of them where Blue America has endorsed a candidate. Today, Howie wrote about two races whose primaries are in full swing right now -- the CA Senate seat to replace Dianne Feinstein, and Adam Schiff's current congressional seat that he's vacating to run for the open Senate seat. That's the district Howie lives in. So we'll get the inside scoop on [...]

How To Win Elections with Rachel Bitecofer – Nicole Sandler Show 2-21-24

   Rachel Bitecofer is a political scientist who doesn't mince words. Her new book, HIT 'EM WHERE IT HURTS: How to Save Democracy by Beating Republicans at Their Own Game is out and should be required reading for all of us concerned about the future of this American experiment. I'm excited that Rachel returns to the show today to show us how to win! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xm38TvDaISc

Justice or Injustice with Lisa Graves – Nicole Sandler Show 2-20-24

     I had hoped that the Supreme Court would have handed down its decision on Trump's move to appeal the DC Circuit court's ruling that he has some made-up 'absolute immunity' from virtually any crime because he once occupied the Oval Office, but no such luck. Perhaps tomorrow when at least one decision from the Extreme Justices is expected. Regardless, Lisa Graves returns to the show today in her capacity as a private citizen who happens to have impeccable legal bona fides (just check out her bio at truenorthresearch.org). I'll get her thoughts on when, and how the [...]

2-19-24 It’s A Holiday But We’re Here with The F#*king News – Nicole Sandler Show

     If I hadn't taken last Monday off to hang with my daughter, I'd probably be enjoying a President's Day holiday off, but I couldn't justify it. Besides, I put together an open for Jonathan Larsen's The Fucking News segment, and I didn't want to wait another week to play it.
