Tomorrow is Media Bias Sunday! Or as I like to call it, Librul Media My Ass Sunday. Previously I kept a running tally of all things unfair, unbalanced for years via the infamous TPC Media Bias Sunday Talk scoreboard. Now the series is a regular feature at NicoleSandler.com. No matter who’s in the White House or runs Congress, the corporate media nearly always has more GOP guests appearing on Sunday talk shows than Democratic guests. Trump is the *shudder* president. He is brazenly destroying democracy, endangering US citizens, alienating other countries, French kissing Putin, and is up to his lacquered hairburger in scandals. That means there [...]
As you know if you've been listening to my show, I just returned from a week in Mexico where I participated in Life Source Retreat's Live Live on Purpose/Laws of Attraction retreat. When I say it was life changing, I mean it. Not only was last year personally painful as I was dealing with lung cancer, the the unthinkable happened when Donald Trump was elected president. I truly was having a difficult time handling it all, perhaps because I was focusing too much on the negative and not enough on the positive. Lesson #1 I learned is that what you [...]
There's madness in the air as the 2017 CPAC gets underway, so I figured it was time for a bit of levity. So I pulled clips of some of the best political comedians for use in today's show and What's News? episode. Plus, Lisa Graves, Executive Director of the Center for Media & Democracy tells us about the great work they're doing to counter the Trump brigade.
Today is the Army Corps of Engineers' deadline for the Standing Rock #NoDAPL protesters to vacate their camps. Susana Sandoval checked in with us at the top of the show to talk about what's happening there. As of showtime, the evictions hadn't yet begun. Susana Sandoval is a human rights activist known for immigration reform work, is a migrant cultural worker and multidisciplinary artist. Purepecha Mexican descent from Chicago, she ran in the 2016 election cycle in Illinois for the U.S. Senate seat. A staunch supporter of women's leadership efforts, she was one of 3 Latinas running nationally. She has been [...]
Today's Los Angeles Times letter to the editor, because our voices matter: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has accused the Democrats of unprecedented obstructionism because they were performing their constitutional duties of asking for financial and ethical screening of Cabinet nominees. This is another outrageous example of the Republicans’ assault on the truth. (“Republicans in Congress gambled on Trump and won. Here's why they're worried now,” Feb. 17) Have we forgotten that right when President Obama took office in 2009, the Republican leadership in Congress planned a no-honeymoon strategy of all-out resistance to Obama, even though the country was [...]
I'm baaack! And yes, that photo was of my group at sunrise one morning... it must have been the first day, as you can still see the full moon in the sky! It was an incredible week and, if you hear today's show, you'll likely notice a change in my mood. I'm planning on keeping this feeling and focusing on the positives. Since today is Tuesday, GottaLaff was here, so I shared some stories in between talking about the insanity that went on here at home. I only took about 400 pictures, so I'll be sorting through them, and uploading [...]
