5-19-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Thursdays with Howie Klein

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Finally! Tuesday was a great primary day for progressives, so we've got that going for us. Today is Thursday, so Howie Klein is here, and we finally have some progressive primary success stories to tell and build upon. And other big primary races are coming up that we can and should also win. But, shenanigans are afoot-- especially in NY where, for some reason, the redistricting maps are being drawn to inflict pain on the Democrats. We'll try to get to [...]

11-22-21 Nicole Sandler Show – The Democratic Party Silver Lining with Mike Lux

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   It's easy to be down on the Democrats right now. I'm constantly invoking that old adage about Democrats always "snatching defeat from the jaws of victory." I can't help it, it's just their track record. But I got a bit of an awakening in the form of an email on a list I subscribe to, filled with real progressives from a cross-section of backgrounds. The author of that message is Mike Lux, and I invited him to join us today to [...]

11-5-21 Nicole Sandler Show – Disorder in the House or Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   I'm so disappointed in our Democratic Party. That statement stands alone. It says nothing about how vile and evil the Republicans are. In fact, both of today's political parties are guilty of malpractice and much worse, but that has nothing to do with the fact that the Democrats really suck. I'll have a few words on this topic. Hopefully I can string them together into a sentence that's understandable. I didn't sleep well last night, but then what else is new? Today [...]

As usual, Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC will be here and we will delve into what happened today as President Biden went to Capitol Hill to beg the Democrats to pass the BIF... it's all so complicated, but we'll attempt to explain it. We'll begin, though, with James North, who's been writing at The Nation about the saga of the human rights attorney Steven Dozinger who reported to prison [...]

10-1-21 Nicole Sandler Show – That Was the Week that Was with David Dayen

Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   Well, it certainly was a week. On Monday I told you to strap in for a roller coaster ride... and now it's Friday and this ride really sucks. It's all so complicated, so I've invited one of the very best of the journalists who keeps me informed, David Dayen, executive editor of the American Prospect magazine to try to wrap up the week, such as it was, for us. Read David's article, "The Progressive Caucus Wields Power," then listen to our conversation. [...]

12-18-20 Nicole Sandler Show – The Winter of Progressives’ Discontent with Norman Solomon

Download here or click below to play     The closer we inch towards January 20 and the end of Trump's reign of terror, the more unhinged the orange man becomes. I'll have the latest news on his scorched earth tactics. Congress is still paralyzed, and the government will officially shut down tonight if they can't come to a funding deal before midnight. Right before showtime, I happened to hear Bernie Sanders on the Senate floor delivering an impassioned speech calling for direct payments of $1200 for every working class American and $500 for children. Here's the video of his [...]

I wasn't sure we'd (I'd) make it. Every Thursday, I'm joined by Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC. At Blue America, Howie (plus Digby and John Amato) identifies and helps raise money for the best progressive candidates out there. Today, we'll run through the list of those Blue America has endorsed this cycle, and see how many new members we can add to the Squad! [...]
