With the news this week of the president urging the Prime Minister of Israel to ban two sitting members of Congress from visiting that country is just the latest salvo in Trump's war on Democrats, and more specifically, The Squad. So, today, we'll tackle a topic that's long overdue -- that of Israel, the Palestinians, BDS, settlements, and more. To talk through the basics and get into the meat of the controversy, Nicole is joined by someone she went to grade school with in NY- Ron Skolnik, an American-Israeli political analyst, writer, editor, public speaker and translator. Hopefully, we'll answer some of your questions about the insane situation in the Middle East.

Fifty years ago today was day two of the Woodstock Festival of Music and Art. Billed as Three Days of Peace and Music, it was just what the times demanded. Unfortunately, we seem unable to re-create that moment in time. We'll look back on that time, mark the death of Elvis Presley on this date in 1977, and explore what's happening in the news today. Our interview today is with Jim Lardner, who has a piece up in the American Prospect asking, "Have Democrats Forgotten How to Do Oversight?" It's a really important question with some actionable advice for Congress to heed.

It's another Thursday in D'ump's AmeriKKKa. At the resident's urging, Israel banned two sitting US Congress members from entering Israel. We'll begin with the rest of the day's insanity, including news of a detention guard intentionally driving his truck into a row of protesters in Rhode Island. Since it's Thursday, we'll also visit with Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC.

We begin our week at the Nicole Sandler Show on Tuesdays, so we have a lot of catching up to do with the news that broke over the weekend- most notably the death, presumably by suicide, of the most notorious criminal in US custody today. We'll begin with a visit from my friend Robert Platshorn, who served 30 years in federal prison for smuggling marijuana in the 70s, about the idea of committing suicide while in federal custody. Then, since it's Tuesday, GottaLaff returns to shoot the sheet with me about the rest of the news of the day...
