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

Impeach the Mother F*cker already! That’s what many Democrats are saying. Nancy Pelosi doesn’t seem to be listening and that’s just where we begin this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show as Trump continues to stonewall the House investigation, while Trump’s number one nemesis and possible opponent in the 2020 run for President, Joe Biden, continues to surge in the polls…these stories and more when Halli and Halli’s partner in politics veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper, and author of THEY WERE HER PROPERTY Stephanie Jones-Rogers join Halli on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

Impeach

In our first half-hour, Halli and Matt slice and dice the week’s political news. Trump Inc. continues to defy subpoenas and in doing so, appears to want to push Democrats to impeachment. There are cracks in Trump’s wall, small but there. Republican Representative Justin Amash dared to cross Trump and and called for Trump’s impeachment. It got dirtier: Rep. Jerry Nadler accused Trump of “witness intimidation” and we’re just beginning. What a show!

In our second half-hour, drawing on the recorded recollections of formerly enslaved individuals, as well as on financial and legal documents, author Stephanie Jones-Rogers opens up a new conversation in the exhaustive study of slave-holding in the United States, myth-busting at its best. In THEY WERE HER PROPERTY, WHITE WOMEN AS SLAVE OWNERS IN THE AMERICAN SOUTH, Ms. Jones-Rogers presents an eye-opening, highly-detailed and vivid account that challenges assumptions about the role of white women in the buying, selling, managing, and hiring of enslaved people, prompting a rethinking of women’s history and the history of slavery. You will be astonished!

Impeach the Mother F*ucker. What is Nancy Pelosi up to? Does Jerry Nadler have what it takes to go nose to nose with Donald Trump and this week in anti-Semitism and a very special guest, Stephanie Jones-Rogers talks her provocative new book THEY WERE HER PROPERTY…always insightful political conversation on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

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.

NETANYAHU AND ISRAEL

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

Bibi Netanyahu

Bibi Netanyahu defied the odds and won his 5th term as Israel’s Prime Minister to become the longest-serving prime minister in Israel’s history, longer than even founding father David Ben-Gurion. This week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show an important conversation with one of Israel’s most notable writers and commentators, the author of an important new book SPIES OF NO COUNTRY, SECRET LIVES AT THE BIRTH OF ISRAEL the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

Bibi Netanyahu

“Compelling, compulsively readable, an arresting account of espionage at the genesis of the Israeli state,” are just some of the accolades given journalist and award-winning author, New York Times Op-Ed contributor, and former AP correspondent Matti Freidman for his new book SPIES OF NO COUNTRY, SECRET LIVES AT THE BIRTH OF ISRAEL, which examines the founding of Israel and the forging of Israeli identity through a little-known, real-life espionage story. Already the recipient of the Natan Book Award at the Jewish Book Council, SPIES OF NO COUNTRY chronicles the exploits of a ragtag unit of Arabic-speaking Jewish spies, assembled by the British during World War II, who would go undercover in the battle for Israeli statehood. A longtime resident of Jerusalem himself, Friedman sets out to reframe the story of Israel as a Middle Eastern one, freed from Europe-centric clichés—to tell a new story about the state’s creation that reflects a more complicated story than the one Israel tells itself and the world. From the early days of Israel, to present day Israel, from the Palmach to the Mossad, from nothing to a thriving state in a fraught land, from David Ben-Gurion to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu you won’t want to miss this free-wheeling conversation with Matti Friedman.

What are we to make of Kellyanne Conway’s husband George Conway’s battle royale with Donald Trump? Why is Devin Nunes having a cow? We love palace intrigue on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show.

George Conway

In our second half-hour because we all need a laugh, from New York Times best-selling author James Geary comes WIT’S END: WHAT WIT IS, HOW IT WORKS, AND WHY WE NEED IT, a whimsical book that explores every facet of wittiness—from its role in innovation, to why puns demonstrate the essence of creativity. According to Geary, wit is much more than just having a knack for snappy comebacks. It is the quick, instinctive intelligence that allows us to think, say, or do the right thing at the right time in the right place. Whether we’re talking verbal repartee, jokes, jive, through neuroscience, psychology, folk tales, spirituality, visual art, and literary history, Geary demonstrates that wit and wisdom are really the same thing.

February 26, 2019 marked the 100th Anniversary of the establishment of Grand Canyon National Park by President Woodrow Wilson and an eager-and-willing U.S. Congress.

Topped off with climate change and President Trump, “we’re on the precipice, both politically and biologically,” Nash asserts, and that’s just part of the problem.
