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. [...]

Emptywheel Fridays on the Nicole Sandler Show – 5-17-24

Today's show will go live at 5pm ET/2PT (I'm out on a musical weekend... see you Monday!)   https://open.spotify.com/episode/6Ju19ftMJcWiVurqm0w3OL   Every Friday I'm joined by the brilliant Marcy Wheeler from emptywheel.net to recap most of the important news of the week.... Today we talk the Trump trial and the show of Republican members of Congress skipping out on their jobs  to do Dear Leader's bidding at a NYC courthouse, some even making implicit terror threats (looking at you Matt Gaetz)... there's the fascist proclivities of SCOTUS (in) justice Alito, journalistic lack of integrity, disorder in the House and lots more... [...]

WTF Wednesday on the Nicole Sandler Show – 5-15-24

 President Joe Biden owned TFG this morning when he issued his challenge for not just one, but TWO debates to happen in June and September. Surprisingly, TFG agreed...BUT then, true to form, he lied about a THIRD debate, hosted by Fox (NOT) News, saying he accepted that one too. But, true to form, he made it up. A third debate and especially one hosted by FOX was NEVER on the table. The poor schmuck just can't abide by anyone else's rules. Yesterday, Digby told me that the sycophants who are still cult members aren't even denying that TFG [...]

Navigating Opposite World with Digby on the Nicole Sandler Show – 5-14-24

     She is the OG of the progressive blogosphere. Heather Parton, known to her readers as Digby, began blogging at her Hullabaloo blog (now at digbysblog.net) back around the turn of the century. Truly.... And here we are today -- not only in Opposite World, but also in the Surreal World. You can (and should) also find Digby writing at Salon.com! We'll talk about Trump on trial and the rest of the absurd news of the day that illustrates just how completely screwed we are! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pn5HV9qL_oU

It’s Fu&#ing Monday, We’ve Got Your Fu&#ing News on the Nicole Sandler Show – 5-13-24

        It's hard to believe we're almost half way through May already. I guess time flies whether we're having fun or not! I'm in website hell and in desperate need of a vacation... but I'm not there yet. So instead, it'll be a show at showtime as usual (5ET/2PT). I'll try to bring you up to speed on the Trump trial. Michael Cohen is on the stand today.. and Sen Bob Menendez' trial is on track to begin today too. It is Monday, so we'll check in with Jonathan Larsen of The Fucking News because we're not [...]

What’s Up Wednesday on the Nicole Sandler Show 5-1-24

       We've had non-stop guests and lots of news recently, so I thought we'd take the day to catch up and talk. Phone lines are open for you to weigh in on anything we've been talking about... from the Extreme Supreme Court, Trump Trials, College protests, Israel-Hamas, or anything else on your mind.

Emptywheel Friday with Marcy Wheeler on the Nicole Sandler Show – SCOTUS Screwed Us Edition 4-26-24

   Each Friday, Marcy Wheeler takes a break from writing at emptywheel.net to join me for a conversation about what happened that week. This week was insane, and ended at the Supreme Extreme Court. That hearing consumed much of today's show, with a few minutes at the end dealing with Trump's current criminal trial, underway in Manhattan.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZ3LJJ0rcyA

Thursday w/SCOTUS, AZ, FCC, FTC, TFG & Howie Klein on the Nicole Sandler Show 4-25-24

   It's a Thursday, so we have a date with Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny & the Blue America PAC. It's not like there's a shortage of things to discuss... in fact, too much news for a one-hour show. There was the SCOTUS hearing this morning on Trump's ridiculous concept of absolute immunity (but there are some ridiculous people sitting on that extreme bench these days), the were 3 members of the AZ Republican House voting with all the Dems to kill the 1864 abortion ban (now goes to the senate and then the governor?). The FCC restored [...]
