A MOTHER’S STORY OF SEPARATION AT THE BORDER

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

Donald Trump ripping families apart at the border and caging children, the Coronavirus surge, Black Lives Matter, Election 2020, Attorney General Barr and the Mike Flynn case are just a few of the subjects we tackle this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when joining Halli at her table are Rosy Pablo Cruz and Julie Schwietert Collazo the co-authors of THE BOOK OF ROSY, A MOTHER’S STORY OF SEPARATION AT THE BORDER and Former White House correspondent and Time and Newsweek veteran Matthew Cooper.

We begin with our weekly take on all things politics when Halli and Matt slice and dice all things politics, and Donald Trump, too. The coronavirus is surging all across America and Donald Trump seems to care less, taking his re-election show on the road, contributing to the spread of the virus. His polls are devastating, but that isn’t stopping him. Joe Biden is leading in all the battleground states. We discuss, but that’s just where we begin.

In our second half-hour don’t miss a truly extraordinary interview with Rossayra Pablo Cruz, a Guatemalan refugee who along with two of her children, aged 5 and 15, made the arduous 5000 journey to America to save her family from the violence that has upended her country, and cost her husband his life. The first Central American mother who had her children ripped away from her by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) to tell her story in book form, Rosy’s account of her harrowing experience is a gripping shaming story of the human cost of inhumane U.S. policies. THE BOOK OF ROSY is co-written by the woman who rescued Rosy from the hovel that is the detention center prison the U.S. government locked her in, and reunited her with her children, Julie Schwietert Collazo, founder of Immigrant Families Together the grassroots organization that reunites mothers and children, who also joins us.

REVENGE OF THE TURD TRUMP

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

Revenge of the Turd Trump is the headline of the week following the acquittal of Donald John Trump in last week’s impeachment hearing and that’s where we begin this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when Halli and her partner in politics former White House correspondent Matthew Cooper slice and dice all things politics, the podcast available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and on all your favorite apps.

REVENGE OF THE TURD TRUMP

Revenge of the Turd Trump is putting it mildly. Hot off his fake trial and not so “perfect” acquittal, Trump wasted no time plotting his revenge to all those he perceives as his enemies, particularly those who answered their subpoenas and testified against Trump in the impeachment hearing, decorated war hero Lt. Col. Vindman and Trump donor now the former Ambassador Gordon Sondland. And that’s just where we begin. The Democrats had their first primary and we take a look at what that means for the candidates going forward. And how about Trump’s interfering in the sentencing of his old pal Roger Stone? Did Attorney General William Barr intervene on the president’s behalf to lighten the sentence of the man who may be the person who holds the most secrets on Trump? The term “Banana Republic” has been tossed around a lot. Are we already there?

Revenge of the Turd Trump, the New Hampshire primary, is Bernie Sanders the left’s Donald Trump? Can Amy Klobuchar capitalize on her newly-found popularity? Is Joe Biden toast? Elizabeth Warren? And will Mike Bloomfield ride in on his limousine and save the Democrat’s day? Those stories and more this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show podcast, always available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and via all your favorite apps.

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

Impeachment train rolls along. Yep, the train is rollin’ down the impeachment tracks, the Democrats conducting an effective campaign against President Donald Trump, while Trump appears to flounder in response more than anytime in his presidency. It’s a whole new political world this week. Will Trump be tossed from office, don the orange jumpsuit, take up residency in the old pokey? Joining me at my table on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show is my partner in politics, former White House Correspondent Matthew Cooper for our weekly commentary on the state of American politics and in our second half-hour, how’s this: A look inside the business of punishment with the author of AMERICAN PRISON, Shane Bauer. Perhaps Donald Trump ought to tune into this show!

Impeachment train rolls along, and a fast moving train it is. As the train winds around the track, there are many stops along the way and quite a cast of characters: Rudy Giuliani, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Attorney General Barr and the big man himself, Donald Trump, already off the rails only a couple of weeks in. My partner in politics, former White House correspondent and I slice and dice it all for you. Find your seat.

Impeachment

In our second half hour, I talk with the author of AMERICAN PRISON, A REPORTER’S UNDERCOVER JOURNEY INTO THE BUSINESS OF PUNISHMENT. In 2009, journalist Shane Bauer and two other young Americans went hiking in Iraqi Kurdistan and unknowingly crossed into Iran. They were captured, and Bauer was held for over two grueling years in Iran’s Evin prison. In 2014, Shane Bauer went undercover as an entry-level guard at a private prison in Winnfield, Louisiana. His story is simply jaw-dropping. Don’t miss this interview!

As the impeachment train rolls along, travels down the track, we are in a whole new territory. The players include President Trump, an unidentified whistle-blower, Attorney General Bill Barr, Rudy Giuliani, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Speaker Pelosi, Rep. Adam Schiff and we’re just beginning. Strap yourselves in and enjoy the ride, and our look inside America’s prison system on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show podcast with Matthew Cooper and New York Times bestselling author of one of the 10 best books of 2018, one of Barack Obama’s favorites, AMERICAN PRISON.

CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS IS HERE

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

Constitutional crisis

Constitutional crisis is here. Congressional authority vs. Executive Authority. Is it time to begin impeachment proceedings? Will Attorney General Bob Barr be found in contempt of Congress? Joe Biden continues to surge in the polls, this week in anti-Semitism and a very special guest, Caroline Fredrickson talks about her new book THE DEMOCRACY FIX in which she lambastes the Democratic Party for its failure to stop the long-term goals of the GOP…these stories and more when Halli and Halli’s partner in politics veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper, and Ms. Fredrickson 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. Are the Democrats and the Republicans both guilty of delay…delay…delay? On impeachment, has Trump cornered Speaker Pelosi? The Republicans have had a long-term strategy to takeover the halls of power in every government branch. Is it too late to stop them? Mitch McConnell says it’s time to move on from the Mueller Report,”Case closed.” But a letter from a group of 700 bi-partisan prosecutors disagrees and says President Trump is a felon. And we’re just beginning, here we go.

Constitutional Crisis

In our second half-hour, Caroline Fredrickson talks about her new book THE DEMOCRACY FIX. Fredrickson, progressive activist and attorney who served as the director of the ACLU’s Washington legislative office and as general counsel and legal director of NARAL Pro-Choice America was chief of staff to Senator Maria Cantwell and deputy chief of staff to the then Senate Democratic Leader Tom Daschle. Along her journey, she learned a lot about politics and in her book chronicles how the Right has seized power at every level of government by ruthlessly focusing on building intellectual capital, winning elections, selecting judges, changing legal rules, promoting fake news, gerrymandering, and suppressing the vote while the Left has sat back and watched, as if their hands were tied behind their backs.

Constitutional crisis is here. Attorney General Bill Barr, Joe Biden, The Mueller Report, this week in anti-Semitism, author THE DEMOCRACY FIX Caroline Fredrickson and Matthew Cooper and Halli have fun bringing you insightful political conversation on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.
