I'll likely miss my first Bruce tour since 1980's The River due to Ticketmaster's "dynamic" and exorbitant prices. But we have politics to talk about... The racist, bigoted Republican party that has a majority in the House of Representatives [...]

I'm not sure where to begin, as so much has happened since we last spoke. Kevin McCarthy is Speaker, only because he sold the position to the MAGAt crowd. The proof is in who's on which committee. Let's just say, looking at Oversight, the foxes [...]

We'll bring you the high (low) lights of today's events before talking with Howie Klein of  Down with Tyranny & the Blue America PAC about the insanity of it all...   https://youtu.be/WVgDmHN3_FE

12-22-22 Nicole Sandler Show – The Final Thursday with Howie Klein of 2022

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) The countdown to the end of the year is on, and today is our last Thursday with Howie Klein in 2022 and in the 117th Congress. When we next convene, it'll be January 5. The 118th Congress will be the first in almost two decades without Nancy Pelosi leading the House Democrats. The torch will have been passed to Hakeem Jefferies, certainly ushering in a new era. But to make matters even worse, the Republicans will be in charge of the House, [...]

12-15-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Big Announcement Thu with Howie Klein

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   This would be hysterically funny if it weren't so tragically sad! The attention whore Donald Trump was promoting a huge announcement for today, with people watching his sputtering newly-launched 2024 campaign wondering how he'll try to redeem himself. But that wasn't it at all! Donald Trump is, above all else, a con man. And today's actually not-so-big announcement was merely another way to bilk his followers of more money while showing absolutely no shame. It'd be quite amazing if it weren't [...]

12-8-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) Howie Klein blogs at Downwithtyranny.com and runs the Blue America PAC. He's done a weekly guest segment with me for probably over a decade now. During that time, the role of progressives in the House Democratic caucus has been somewhat of a rollercoaster. Today, we'll get the lay of the land from Howie regarding the makeup of the incoming minority party in the 218th Congress... Will Kevin McCarthy become Speaker? What about his challenger, the MAGAt Andy Biggs? Will a Blue Dog come [...]

12-1-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) I've been chatting with Howie Klein every week for probably at least 10 years now, and always look forward to the insights he brings, even if we don't always agree. I can't wait to talk with Howie today about two main topics that are in the news right now. First up, the long-awaited changing of the guard in the House Democratic leadership. We'll talk about the good, the bad and the ugly. And speaking of ugly, the mess in dealing with the [...]

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   The final vote counts are being tabulated and the outlook for the 118th Congress is coming into focus. Unfortunately, the Republicans have taken the majority in the House, and Kevin McCarthy is trying his hardest to become Speaker of the House. But the craziest in his caucus-- members of the so-called Freedom Caucus -- are exacting some major concessions from him for their votes. This is not going to be an enjoyable two years on that front. But there's much to speak [...]

11-10-22 11-10-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Post-Election Thursday with Howie Klein

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) We're sill awaiting election results that will determine which party controls either or both Houses of Congress, but the big news is that the much-hyped coming Red Wave or Red Tsunami never materialized. I never bought it, but it's time for a major reckoning on how the corporate media enthusiastically and completely parroted the pollsters' partisan and slanted findings as fact, bowing to the idea of a horse race over being careful not to obscure actual facts. So, though there are still [...]

11-3-22 Nicole Sandler Show – The Final Thursday with Howie Klein of the 2022 Midterm Elections

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   We're in the final stretch of the 2022 Midterm elections, and I don't recall ever being this stressed out about the future of our country. I'm not a person who prays, but I am wishing and hoping with every inch of my being that reasonable people come out and vote in such huge numbers that the liars, cheaters, gaslighters and all of the Trump sycophants are shamed into oblivion. Sadly, that probably won't happen as a nefarious lie has taken hold and [...]
