France & the UK Beat Fascism, We Can Too – Nicole Sandler Show – 7-10-24

 We saw huge election wins for liberals over the far right in France and the UK in the last week. We can and should do it here as well, but we have to pay attention to what they did in Europe and learn from their actions. Today, we'll reach across the pond to an old friend of the show. Dave Johnson moved to England last year, and joins us today to talk about being an ex-pat, life in England, our political conundrum and how they beat back fascism over there. And I explain how we win... truly, I [...]

Emptywheel Fridays on the Nicole Sandler Show 5-24-24

     We made it through another eventful week in the most insane decade of my life, and I'm old. We celebrate Fridays because the weekend is here, but not before we recap some of the news made during the week that's ending. It seems that each week these days is more outlandish than the one before, and this one is no different. Among the news and stories that Emptywheel.net's Marcy Wheeler and I discussed today are the complete mess that is the Supreme Court. ProPublica this week confirmed and shared photographic proof that Justice Samuel Alito flew a [...]

We Must Stop the MAGAt March Toward A Fascist USA on the Nicole Sandler Show – 5-22-24

 I've been doing my best to have guests on this program who can explain the threats we are facing from fascism by way of Trump and his MAGAt sycophants. We've exposed "Project 2025" and urge you to learn as much as possible about what they are planning should they retake power. It really is urgent -- all hands on deck kind of urgent. Today we'll give you the knowledge you need to push back on the mis and disinformation, lies and propaganda they're pushing. There's a reason TFG said "I love the poorly educated!". They're easier to manipulate. [...]

5-30-23 Nicole Sandler Show – A Post-Holiday Weekend Update with Will Bunch

  https://media.zencastr.com/audio-files/5e0cc41aa9798f001400ff98/d7ff0978-a57a-4938-8416-177f15d7f52e.mp3   The first day back after a long holiday weekend is always tough. But here we are. News was made while America was using the day set aside to remember those lost in battle to buy mattresses and gorge themselves on food and beer. OK, I'm over-generalizing, but we really do need to step back and assess our priorities from time to time. And this would be a good time to do that. With the debt ceiling negotiations ongoing as the holiday weekend began, I was taken aback that the so-called cable news channel MSNBC opted to run [...]

5-23-23 Nicole Sandler Show – STOP HIM BEFORE HE RUNS!

    https://media.zencastr.com/audio-files/5e0cc41aa9798f001400ff98/b85897b8-a8ac-403b-a8e5-98ca3999cb92.mp3   The word on the street is the DeSantis will make it official tomorrow, declaring his candidacy for president on 2024 with an announcement live on Twitter Spaces with Elon Musk. Twitter Spaces? That's like a phone party line, right? Either way, I guess I'll miss it. But I continue doing my civic duty as someone who still (unfortunately) lives in Florida to warn the rest of the nation (and planet) about the sorry, sniveling, authoritarian, dictator wannabe and keep him as far away from the White House as is possible. Today on the show, I'll share [...]

5-17-23 Nicole Sandler Show – Wise Women Wednesday with Digby

https://media.zencastr.com/audio-files/5e0cc41aa9798f001400ff98/dc0239dd-376c-4be7-b6d5-197e85839f5e.mp3 One sure-fire way to get me to return for a live show is to have Digby booked as the guest. I've been taking a few days to try to regain some sanity as I've been struggling with some demons lately. Still struggling, but happy to be here today to talk with Heather "Digby" Parton. She's the Queen... the OG progressive blogger who's been at it with Digby's Hullabaloo since the start, fighting the good fight. (Though in my current state of mind, I keep asking if anything can stop the descent into full-blown fascism, and haven't come to [...]

They both work. Jeff has been a favorite author and guest of mine since he gave us THE FAMILY back in 2008, and has been pulling the curtain from around the Christian nationalist movement and the many offshoots of what I call insanity, though Jeff is far more charitable. He gets out among these people and [...]

That's why I call on Lisa Graves so often. She's brilliant, with the legal background to prove it. Today, Lisa leads TrueNorthResearch.org, while still overseeing Kochdocs.org and ALECexposed, and other campaign that have reported truths we need to know. She's also worked on the inside, in the DOJ, holding a few different positions through [...]

Ron DeSantis is a bully who believes his point of view is the only valid viewpoint and any other thoughts or ideas are therefore "woke," "indoctrination," or some other nonsense he spews every time he opens his ugly mouth. Just when you think he can't go any lower, he does something else despicable. The latest? In response to last week's protests [...]
