1-4-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Welcome to 2021 with David Dayen

  Download here or click below to play   We did it! We survived 2020. But over 351,000 of us didn't. There are no assurances that 2021 will be any better, except for the fact that in 16 days, Donald Trump will be evicted from the White House and we can start the journey back to sanity. But he's not leaving quietly! Over the holidays, Trump escalated his gaslighting and attempts at upending Democracy to levels not seen before, certainly not in modern history. And this week-- the first week of the new year, promises to be at least very [...]

12-28-20 Nicole Sandler Show – The Sedition of Lame Donald Duck Trump

Download here or click below to play   It's been a long five days since we last got together on Christmas Eve Eve, but that's expected at the end of a year that's felt like a decade! Rather than recount it all here, I'll update everyone at the top of the show. The bottom line is that Trump finally signed the COVID relief and omnibus funding bill combination, but not until he exerted maximum pain on the American people. The House is voting today on raising the dollar amount of checks going out to the American people and overturning Trump's [...]

On Leaks and Drones and a Congressman with Guts

Listen to this episode: {play}http://traffic.libsyn.com/radioornot/20120614_Nicole_Sandler_Show_-_Grayson.mp3 {/play} Podcast: Play in new window What a great looking group, huh? That photo was taken a few months ago, when Stephanie Miller's Sexy Liberal Comedy Tour came to Ft. Lauderdale for a show at the Parker Playhouse.  When Congressman Alan Grayson entered the room, the place erupted in applause and a standing ovation, confusing the performers backstage who had no idea what all the commotion was about. Fast forward to this past Saturday.  There I was, wandering the exhibit hall at Netroots Nation in Providence Rhode Island, when I happened upon Congressman Grayson, chatting [...]

Not Dead Yet

Listen to this episode: {play}http://traffic.libsyn.com/radioornot/20120522_Nicole_Sandler_Show_-_Not_Dead_Yet.mp3{/play} Podcast: Play in new window   As I read Chris Hedges latest, "A Victory for Us All" aloud on the show this morning, I was reminded -yet again- of the classic "I'm not dead yet" scene from Monty Python & The Holy Grail.  (For a brief moment, I even regretted ripping up a pocket copy of the US Constitution on my show this morning, after recounting the story about activist being arrested in Chicago and the distinct possibility that they may have been set up and charged as domestic terrorists.)  As Hedges so beautifully explains, [...]

RIP First Amendment

Listen to this episode: {play}http://traffic.libsyn.com/radioornot/20120517_Nicole_Sandler_Show_-_RIP_our_First_Amendment.mp3{/play} Podcast: Play in new window I've spent the past few days lamenting the loss of our first amendment.  In case you've forgotten, it goes like this: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. It pains me to put it down in black and white, but it's dead on all levels. As we discussed earlier in the week, [...]

Modern Monetary Theory-and the Whittling Away of the 4th Amendment

I might be in a bit over my head today... Listener Stefanitza suggested I speak with an expert on Modern Monetary Theory.  Interestingly enough, that request came shortly after a discussion on the topic on a listserv I'm on, prompted by this piece in the Washington Post. The more I read about Warren Mosler - economist, president and founder of Mosler Automotive, and co-founder of the Center for Full Employment And Price Stability at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. He briefly ran for President of the United States as a member of the Democratic Party in the 2012 election before [...]

On Indefinite Detention and Fighting for What’s Right

I've been vilified on the internet for daring to attempt to reason with people who won't criticize our president, even in light of horrible abuses of our constitutional rights as citizens. I've learned my lesson: tweeting while sick and attempting to reason with the unreasonable are two things I will no longer do. When my thoughts are muddled, I'll stay off the twitter machine.  And I'll no longer engage those who don't debate in good faith. That said, I have many reasons to be worried about the provisions in the Defense Authorization Act the allow for the indefinite detention of [...]
