ANTI-SEMITISM

A new year, a new decade — we’ve moved well into a new century, and yet that old and ugly little thing called anti-Semitism has reared its ugly head once again. Election 2020, which has been the talk of the town since Donald Trump was elected is still eleven months away, but that is this year. Can November come too soon? A U.S. diplomatic installation has come under siege, the fortress that is the American Embassy in Bagdad. Where do we go from here? Iran? And Speaker Pelosi has yet to send the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate, Trump remains furious, as are his sidekicks in obstruction of Congress and abusers of power, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Miss Lindsey Graham. Senator Susan Collins has a few things to say about that. Should anyone believe a thing Susan Collins says?

Anti-Semitism, Election 2020, the Middle East, Iraq, Iran, Bibi Netanyahu, the impeachment of Donald Trump. Roar! Tune in when Halli and Matthew Cooper tackle all things politics on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, the podcast available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, on all your favorite apps, and on your Alexa device, too.

TRUMP DANES TO CALL HIMSELF JESUS…

Written by Halli Casser-Jayne on . Posted in HC-J Blog

Rashida Tlaib. The Jewish question. Anti-Semitic tropes by Trump who danes to call himself Jesus,the BDS Movement, Israel, Joe Biden and we’re just beginning when Halli and her partner in politics veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper talk all things politics this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

Rashida Tlaib

And oh what a week it was. Anti-Semitism and Israel were the topics of the week when Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, barred Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and her cohort Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from entering Israel and the first two Muslims elected to Congress took their battle with Israel to the airwaves. Trump egged them on, called Jews who voted with the Democratic Party the old anti-Semitic trope “disloyal,” and the Democrats sided with the two Congresswomen, both who themselves have made anti-Semitic statements against Israel and are pro the BDS terrorist movement, the Palestinian economic war machine against the Jewish state. But that’s not all. Joe Biden regained his double-digit lead in the Democratic Party’s presidential contest, while Kamala Harris has taken a precipitous 12-point fall. Is Biden a good bet for the Dems? Why isn’t Steve Bullock, Montana’s popular governor and a moderate Democrat leading a Republican state not getting attention from Democratic Party voters? Is gun control dead? Will the trade war finish off Trump? Is a recession on the horizon? Trump wanted to buy Greenland, and the Danes told him no, so Trump canceled his visit to Denmark? Halli and Matt discuss whether calling Trump crazy is effective, and so much more.

POLITICS AIN’T SOYBEANS CHRISTIAN NATIONALISM

Written by Halli Casser-Jayne on . Posted in HC-J Blog

Constitutional crisis

Politics ain’t soy beans mid-west farmers are learning as Trump ups the ante in his trade war with China, Jr. to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee, abortion, this week in anti-Semitism, Joe Biden continues to surge in the polls, Florida…Florida…Florida and a very special guest, Andrew L. Seidel talks about his provocative new book THE FOUNDING MYTH in which the author asks if Christian Nationalists are un-American…these stories and more when Halli and Halli’s partner in politics veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper, and Mr. Seidel join Halli on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

In our first half-hour, Halli and Matt slice and dice the week’s political news. As Trump Inc. Defies supoenas, is impeachment back on the table? Seriously, what’s up with Lindsey Graham? The lobby most feared in Washington D.C., the NRA is knee deep in grifters, activist Alyssa Milano calls for a sex-strike and the latest round of anti-abortion legislation nd we’re just beginning, here we go.

In our second half-hour: The Halli Casser-Jayne Show is all for challenging myths.This week’s guest is the author of THE FOUNDING MYTH, WHY CHRISTIAN NATIONALISM IS UN-AMERICAN, Andrew L. Seidel whose provocative new book seeks to bust the myth indelibly woven into the founding of the Republic that is the United States of America: That our nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles. Here’s why: In today’s contentious political climate, understanding religion’s role in American government is more important than ever. Christian nationalists do indeed assert that our nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles, and advocate an agenda based on this popular historical claim. But is this belief true? Do the Ten Commandments, “In God We Trust,” George Washington’s “prayer” at Valley Forge, and other historical “evidence” prove that America was founded on Judeo-Christian principles? Are the Ten Commandments the basis for American law? Andrew Seidel, a constitutional attorney, dives into the debate about religion’s role in America’s founding…and he argues that our founding fathers did not, as is previously thought, look to the Bible when they drafted the pillar of the United States – the Declaration of Independence.

Politics ain’t soybeans Mid-west farmers have learned as Trump ups the ante in his trade war with China, Jr. to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee, abortion, this week in anti-Semitism, Joe Biden continues to surge in the polls, Florida…Florida…Florida and a very special guest, Andrew L.

BARR IN THE HOT SEAT JESSICA YELLIN

Written by Halli Casser-Jayne on . Posted in HC-J Blog

Attorney General Bob Barr in the hot seat, Joe Biden surges in the polls, anti-Semitism and so-called fake news are just some of the subjects we tackle when former CNN Chief White House Correspondent and author Jessica Yellin and Halli’s partner in politics veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper join Halli on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, the podcast at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

In our first half-hour, Halli and Matt slice and dice the week’s political news. Robert Mueller wrote a letter to Attorney General William Barr — Barr is now in the hot seat. How will the letter’s contents shake up the political landscape? Did, as Mueller wrote, Attorney General William Barr misrepresent the Mueller Report to the public? Joe Biden takes a 26-point lead among Dems in new national poll; will it hold? Elizabeth Warren takes the number two position as Bernie Sanders takes a hit. Should Democrats cut a deal with Trump on infrastructure? And we’re just beginning, here we go.

In our second half-hour, Jessica Yellin, the former chief White House correspondent for CNN and an Emmy and Gracie Award-winning political journalist for CNN, ABC News, and MSNBC joins Halli at her table. Yellin is also the founder of Sage, a multi-platform media company. Yellin’s work has been published in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, The Daily Beast, The Hive, and Entertainment Weekly. She is a fellow with the USC Annenberg Center on Communication Leadership and Policy and sits on the board of the Center for Public Integrity. And now she is a fiction writer, the author of a new book, very much the talk of the town SAVAGE NEWS. Yellin knows of what she writes, her story that of a smart, feisty and serious-minded female reporter jockeying for recognition in a world of rapid news cycles, short attention spans, and manufactured news who encounters cut-throat competitors and predators at every turn. Can she hold onto her journalistic ethics and still triumph in a landscape that has become one giant reality show?

sublime to ridiculous edition

From the sublime to the ridiculous: Does the Democratic Party have an anti-Semitic problem? Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and anti-Semitism. A wall by any other name is not a wall. Did Trump or did Trump not collude with Russia? Can satire save our nation? These topics and more in our political review with Halli and veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper and with our guest in our second half-hour, Sophia McClennen, the author of IS SATIRE SAVING OUR NATION? MOCKERY AND AMERICAN POLITICS this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and on all your favorite apps.

As always, Halli and Matt slice and dice the week’s political news. This week we begin with the infamous wall and the budget Congress presented to President Trump. Will he sign it? And what’s going on with the Senate Intelligence Committee? They seem to have differing points of view as to whether Trump colluded with Russia or not. Is Senator Amy Klobuchar the Dems magic candidate? Congresswoman Ilhan Omar. Does Beto O’Rourke need a Valium? Has anybody looked at their tax rebates lately… and that’s just where we begin.

sublime to the ridiculous edition

In our second half-hour a fun conversation with Sophia McClennen the author of IS SATIRE SAVING OUR NATION MOCKERY AND AMERICAN POLITICS. In a time when good, old-fashioned humor seems to have fallen by the wayside, satire has become the de rigeur of the day. We thought we’d take a look at satire, and that’s why we’ve invited Penn State University Professor Sophia McClennen to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. McClennen works on the intersections between culture, politics, and society, her books focusing on cultural responses to complex social change, such as the connections between the satire of Stephen Colbert and Donald J. Trump.

From the sublime to the ridiculous. Anti-Semitism and Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, Kamala Harris, Executive Time, The House Intelligence Committee Report, the latest presidential contenders, Jon Stewart, SNL — these stories and more when journalists Halli Casser-Jayne and Matthew Cooper and author Sophia McClennen talk politics and humor on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, and on all your favorite apps.

CAN CHRISTIANITY SURVIVE TRUMP? BART EHRMAN RABBI BIRNHOLZ

Written by Halli Casser-Jayne on . Posted in HC-J Blog

Christianity

Can Christianity survive Trump? How is it that against all odds, Judaism has survived? A look at religion in these fractious times when joining Halli at her table on TALKish, The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com is controversial historian Bart Ehrman, the author of THE TRIUMPH OF CHRISTIANITY and Rabbi Michael Birnholz of Temple Beth Shalom Vero Beach, Florida.

In his new book THE TRIMPH OF CHRISTIANITY, Bart Ehrman – a leading authority on early Christianity – investigates the story of how Christianity grew from a religion of 20 or so peasants in rural Galilee to the dominant religion in the West in less than 400 years. He opines that Christianity didn’t have to become the dominant religion in the West. It easily could have remained a sect of Judaism fated to have the historical importance of the Sadducees or the Essenes. Instead, the religion, whose first believers were twenty or so illiterate day laborers in a remote part of the empire became the official religion of Rome, converting some thirty million people in just four centuries becoming what Ehrman says is the single most important cultural transformation our world has ever seen—one that revolutionized art, music, literature, philosophy, ethics, economics, and law. After Trump, can Christianity survive? The controversial BART D. EHRMAN is the author of more than twenty books, including the New York Times bestselling MISQUOTING JESUS and GOD’S PROBLEM. He is the James A. Gray Distinguished Professor of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and is a leading authority on the Bible and the life of Jesus. He has been featured in Time and has appeared on Dateline NBC, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, CNN, the History Channel, NPR’s Fresh Air, and more.

ChristianityRabbi Michael Birnholz arrived at Temple Beth Shalom in Vero Beach, Florida in 2002 following his ordination from Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion. Over the years that Rabbi Birnholz has served the Jews in the largely rural Indian River County, Florida, he has enthusiastically shared his ruach and koach – spirit and strength – with the many diverse generations and facets of the Jewish community. He has participated in a wide variety of opportunities to teach and preach Jewish values and wisdom not only to his congregation but to the diverse community. How have the Jewish people survived against all odds? Is the Rabbi worried about the rise of anti-Semitism at home and abroad? What is the meaning of Passover? Is organized religion losing its way?

Can Christianity survive Trump? Do not miss this astonishing and honest conversation. Religion, spirituality, evangelical Christians, Judaism, politics, Bible, Trump on TALKish, The Halli Casser-Jayne Show with historian and author Bart Lehrman and Rabbi Michael Birnholz, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

NATIONAL PEARL HARBOR REMEMBRANCE DAY HISTORIANS KATHRYN SMITH, MARC WORTMAN

Written by Halli Casser-Jayne on . Posted in HC-J Blog

National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day

 

For nearly 17 months on the campaign trail, Trump did what no American politician had attempted in a generation, with defiant flair. Instead of painting a bright vision for a unified future, he magnified the divisions of the present, inspiring new levels of anger and fear within his country.

As we commemorate National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day and the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor we return to history and World War II with two important stories when journalist Kathryn Smith, author of THE GATEKEEPER: MISSY LEHAND, FDR AND THE UNTOLD STORY OF THE PARTNERSHIP THAT DEFINED A PRESIDENCY and historian Marc Wortman, author of 1941, FIGHTING THE SHADOW WAR join Halli on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday, 3 pm ET at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

In THE GATEKEEPER, Journalist Kathryn Smith tells the story of Marguerite  Alice “Missy” LeHand the savvy personal secretary President Franklin Delano Roosevelt considered one of the most vital, and certainly one of the most loyal members of his inner circle. Missy fulfilled the crucial duties of Chief of Staff long before the position was formally created, working with FDR for more than twenty years, starting from his first failed Vice Presidential campaign in 1920, through his time as governor of New York, and for almost a decade in the White House. She was also FDR’s confidante (lover?), his support when he contracted polio, and his close friend. People in Washington, D.C., knew one indisputable truth: if you wanted to get to FDR, you had to go through Missy.

1941 Fighting the Shadow War National Pearl Harbor Remembrance DayA divided America? A country reluctant to go to war? A country turning its back on genocide? The year 2016? No, the year 1941, the focus of historian Marc Wortman’s book 1941, FIGHTING THE SHADOW WAR. Conventional wisdom dictates that the US entered World War II in retaliation for the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 8, 1941. Historian Marc Wortman sees it another way, revealing the ways in which America played an increasingly significant and clandestine role in the war in the months and years prior to officially joining the battle. Churchill, Lindbergh, the Roosevelt family, FDR advisor and emissary Harry Hopkins, journalists William Shirer and Philip Johnson, Wortman weaves the smart, suspenseful history that reads like an epic novel.

National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, history, politics, Pearl Harbor, isolationism, anti-Semitism, plagiarism, Republicans, Democrats…tune in to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday, December 7, 3 pm ET at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.
