Today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127


Hidden in the news this week, Trump pardoned Dwight and Steven Hammond—two Oregon ranchers convicted of deliberately setting fire to swaths of federal lands. Their convictions were the spark that led to the violent Bundy standoff back, and this pardon sends far-reaching political messages to those involved. Reporter for ThinkProgress Alan Pyke argues that the president is fanning a culture-war fire to help cover up his campaign to hand wilderness to mining companies. He joins me on the show today to talk all about it.

This sure has been another crazy week in politics what with Trump announcing his Supreme Court nominee, the NATO summit, the explosive congressional hearing of FBI agent Peter Strzok, 12 new indictments from the Mueller investigation. Joining me today to help us wrap up the week in politics is Eleanor Clift the Washington correspondent for The Daily Beast, where she covers the White House and writes about politics and culture.

Today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

Noah Michelson, the Editorial Director at the new HuffPost Personal and Co-host of the Love + Sex Podcast returns to the show as he does every Thursday to help us close out the week with the stories making headlines over at HuffPost.


When the people of Flint, Michigan, turned on their faucets in April 2014, the orange water pouring out was poisoned with lead and other toxins. Through a series of disastrous decisions, the state government had switched the city’s water supply, and the mostly poor and African American residents suffered tremendously for it. Detroit-based journalist Anna Clark wrote about the causes, victims and revelations of the catastrophe in her new book The Poisoned City: Flint’s Water and the American Urban Tragedy. She joins me on the show to talk all about it.

Today, FBI official Peter Strzok testified before a joint hearing of the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees. The hearing focused on his actions during investigations of both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump from the 2016 presidential election, and quickly became explosive as Democrats and Republicans feuded over conspiracy theories, accusations against the integrity of the FBI and more. Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) was there and he joins me on the show today to talk all about it.

Today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

From Capitol Hill to the States, immigration has become a defining issue in American life and politics, especially under the Trump administration. Staff writer at Daily Kos Gabe Ortiz joins me on the show today to talk about the latest immigration news on family separation at the border, the realities of ICE detention, and more.

When Trump picked Brett Kavanaugh as his Supreme Court nominee, he chose a candidate favored by many conservative interest, but not the Christian right. While Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court is a staunch conservative, his views on religious freedom are less well known. Reporting Fellow with the Investigative Fund Sarah Posner examined his record andthe forces at play behind advocating for religion in the judiciary.

Today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

As Trump and Putin prepare to sit down for a summit next week, the “progress” made at the North Korea summit appears to be unraveling further. Meanwhile, the resignations of more top officials in England over Brexit are putting the nation into chaos. Plus, as Trump heads to the NATO summit, he has criticized other nations and argues that they should pay back the US. Washington editor-at-large for The Atlantic Steve Clemons joins me on the show to talk all about these and more of the latest global headlines.

Since we last spoke with Mark Joseph Stern of Slate last week a lot has happened, from EPA head Scott Pruitt resigning to Trump announcing Brett Kavanaugh as his new pick for the Supreme Court, to more legal challenges to Trump’s family separation policy. Mark returns to the show today to talk all about these issues and so much more.

Tonight, President Trump will announce his pick for the Supreme Court to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. Though he is a conservative, Kennedy has been instrumental in key Supreme Court decisions for same-sex marriage and other LGBT issues, but his replacement could be far more extreme. CEO of Lambda Legal Rachel B. Tiven joins me on the show today to talk about the possible nominees and what to watch for on the future of the court.

Since we last spoke with John Nichols of The Nation a lot has happened—Giuliani is contradicting Trump, Trump’s tariffs on China went into effect, and Trump will announce his pick for Supreme Court nominee tonight.  John returns to the show today to talk all about these issues and whole lot more, John is The Nation’s national-affairs correspondent, a contributing writer for The Progressive and In These Times and the associate editor of The Capital Times, the daily newspaper in Madison, Wisconsin.
