  • 20220705 Nicole Sandler Show - American Life After the Establishment Cause (Freedom of Religion)

    The US Extreme Court, formerly known as Supreme, has decimated some of the principles upon which this nation was founded. Today, we focus on the illegitimate three (and their three accomplices) who have, with some of their recent rulings, decimated the separation of church and state and with it the First Amendment's Establishment Clause and the Free Exercise Clause. The Establishment clause prohibits the government from "establishing" a religion. The Free Exercise Clause protects citizens' right to practice their religion as they please, so long as the practice does not run afoul of a "public morals" or a "compelling" governmental interest. They did this in two cases announced in the last two weeks: one that said a high school football coach did not run afoul of the constitution when he had players gather on the 50-yard line after games for a Christian prayer, and another saying that the state of Maine must pay for religious schools if no public school is available in the district where a student lives. As horrible as all of that is, it doesn't include the dangerous sect of Christianity that' positioning itself to impose their religious dogma on the rest of us. It's not just Christianity, but Dominionism and New Apostolic Reformation that's invading every sector of government, as is their plan. Frederick Clarkson wrote about this trend and the Republican nominee for Governor of Pennsylvania, Doug Mastriano, who takes this religious perversion to new extremes. And, oh yeah, another mass shooting at a 4th of July parade in Highland Park, IL yesterday, killing six and injuring dozens... Welcome to the new Gilead of America...

    Today is the Friday before the long Fourth of July holiday weekend and I don't know about you, but I'm ready to tune out the news and try to de-stress after the past week... year.... 5 years... You get the idea. The best medicine, they say, is laughter. So, I invited today's guest on the show because she consistently provides us with that much-needed medicine with her weekly song parodies (and occasional original composition), Lauren Mayer. She writes biting satirical lyrics and performs these parodies with a combination of news and topicality, intelligence, fun and talent. We'll start with some other news-adjacent info, and then Lauren will Zoom in... Also, a programming note: Monday is July 4th and I will be taking a holiday... but I will have a show. It's radio (or a close facsimile), and the show must go on. So on Monday, I'll do a music show, which means no YouTube or other video stream. So on Monday, listen to the audio-only show at nicolesandler.com/listen-live, on progressivevoices.com or pull up my stream the simplest way at nicolesandlerstream.com. And Happy Independence Day. Yay us!

  • 20220630 Nicole Sandler Show - Thursdays with Howie Klein (and Nicole's in a mood)

    We haven't spoken with Howie in a few weeks, as the House Select Committee had hearings on the last two Thursdays, so our regular programming was pre-empted. But there's no hearing today. Howie's back, and we have a lot of unfortunately very bad news to discuss. One bright shining spot of good news today though. We now call her Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson. Justice Breyer officially retired today, after the Supreme Court handed down its final rulings for the year, including a giant middle finger to those of us who were counting on combating climate change to save the planet. Scorched earth indeed!

    For the past few weeks (and more), we've been listening. Listening to the 1-6 hearings and the witnesses. Listening to the cable pundits. Listening to the lies from today's Republicans who are covering for the biggest con ever run on this country by the orange con man Don himself. We've been listening to the opinions of an illegitimate court about which nothing is supreme; the Extreme Court is more like it. So today, it's your turn to use your voice. I'm taking your calls at 954-889-6410, or via Skype to nicolesandler. Or if you prefer to jump on via Zoom, just go to bit.ly/nicolesandlershow and wait there. We have a lot to talk about today!
