Given the overwhelming number of cases where justice has not been served in recent days, weeks and months, we're past due for a visit with Elie Mystal, Justice Correspondent for The Nation and author of ALLOW ME TO RETORT: A BLACK GUY'S GUIDE TO THE CONSTITUTION. Thankfully, he joins us today for the better part of the hour. Don't be late! https://youtube.com/live/QETAFpCSwow

I've been horribly disillusioned by the corporate media, especially the outlets that purport to serve a progressive audience. But I do have to thank MSNBC for introducing me to the always brilliant Elie Mystal. I've been honored by his presence on this program a few times, and am thrilled to welcome him back today as his new book, Allow Me To Retort: A Black Guy's Guide to the Constitution was just released. Elie's premise that the constitution is "trash" raised some eyebrows [...]

Elie is Justice Correspondent for The Nation, but he approaches the law, the Supreme Court and the ridiculous situation in which we find ourselves with a sense of humor to match his insights. No one can deny that this was a shit show of a week.... but at least Elie Mystal will help us stick a fork in it today. https://youtu.be/G_bWhXGYtRg
Download here or click below to play Another week begins with the nation reeling from an over abundance of unbelievable news. Except in this era of Trump-imposed Opposite World, it's all sadly too believable. First D'ump nominates Amy Coney Barrett, the most worst choice possible to replace Ruth Bader Ginsberg on the Supreme Court. Then the NY Times drops a bombshell after getting access to 20 years of his tax records. Barry W. Lynn, former Executive Director of Americans United for Separation of Church & State and The Nation's Elie Mystal join in for a couple of important [...]

That said, after a rocky minute or two at the start, all was working well... And then I got our guest today, the always wonderful Elie Mystal on the line. Unfortunately, Elie was on a cordless phone that sounded as if the battery was running low, so the connection was scratchy at best. I had him call back on his cell, but that was [...]
Just click to play: or download here To help Nicole Sandler get through what we thought would likely be the final day of the impeachment trial of Donald Trump, Nicole Sandler lined up two stellar guests: Elie Mystal, Justice Correspondent for The Nation, and Lisa Graves, former chief counsel of the Senate Judiciary Committee and former Deputy Assistant Attorney General under Bill Clinton! Of course, we'll be watching the ever-changing news-- shortly after noon, another bombshell from John Bolton's forthcoming book that could- and should- have an effect on what happens today.
We've made it to another Friday, but a what a week this was! We wrap it up with a great conversation about how we got her with Elie Mystal of Above the Law. Then, we chat with Tom LoBianco, journalist and author of Piety & Power: Mike Pence and the Taking of the White House. Instead of playing a comedy bit today, I told you about this video which won't work on radio because it's all visuals. The video was presented at a dinner for world leaders, I believe at the end of the UN General Assembly, by the president of Ukraine -- yes, [...]
We begin the show, as usual, with an update on the latest crazy news of the day. Yes, we deal with Trump's horrific attacks on Rep. Ilhan Omar and the rest of this week's insanity. Last night, CNN turned the next presidential debate into a reality TV show by staging a ridiculous live on the air drawing of podium positions. But I noticed that in all of their coverage of the coming debate, CNN has disappeared Sen. Mike Gravel who is running and did qualify on Thursday for the debate by garnering more than the prescribed 65,000 individual donors. [...]
