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

Congresswoman Jackie Speier and Halli’s partner in politics veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper join Halli this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

Congresswoman Jackie Speier

In our first half-hour, Halli and Matt slice and dice the last week’s political news. How did Donald Trump do in his first Oval Office speech? Will the government shutdown ever end? Can Nancy Pelosi control Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez? There sure are a lot of connections between Trumplandia and the Russians. When will Robert Mueller give us answers? And these are just some of the subjects tackled.

Congresswoman Jackie Speier

In the second half-hour, Halli interviews Congresswoman Jackie Speier, the author of a new book UNDAUNTED:SURVIVING JONESTOWN, SUMMONING COURAGE, AND FIGHTING BACK. Jackie Speier is the U.S. Representative for California’s Fourteenth Congressional District. She is a recognized champion of women’s rights, personal privacy, and consumer safety—as well as an avowed opponent of government inefficiency and waste. In 2012, she was named to Newsweek’s list of 150 “Fearless Women” in the world. In November 2017, Congresswoman Speier co-authored the #MeTooCongress Act to overhaul how sexual harassment and assault are reported and mediated on Capitol Hill, and in 2018 she was named one of “Politico’s 50” for these efforts. Speiers was first elected in 2008, her journey to the halls of Congress coming after she survived being left for dead during the Jonestown massacre while she was serving as a congressional legal adviser. A story of personal struggle—as a widow, a mother, and an outspoken victim of gun violence— and service, this is an interview you don’t want to miss.

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

Win Some, Lose Some Election 2018

Win some, lose some, change is a comin’ to Washington, D.C. and Donald Trump’s life. A day after the Midterm Election 2018, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, Halli and her partner in politics journalist Matthew Cooper take a look at the state of the nation after the historical vote that put the Democratic Party back in control of the House of Representatives but allowed Republicans to maintain control of the Senate.

As we do every week, newsman Matthew Cooper joins Halli for our politics segment, PODCAST AMERICA, in which Matt and Halli slice and dice all things politics. And what a week it has been. Democratic stars Andrew Gillum in Florida, Stacey Abrams in Georgia, and Beto O’Rourke in Texas were spotlight races because they seemed impossible, but Gillum and O’Rourke didn’t quite pull it off. The Blue Wave really was a wave, but not quite as big a wave as pollsters thought. The Democrats took back the House after 8 years and the Republicans maintained control of the Senate. It appears health care has been saved, Democrats get subpoena power, the Robert Mueller investigation is protected, a ton of Democratic women and minorities will take their place in Congress and in State Houses in both blue and red states. Yes, Democrats permeated the red wall, and what has been called Trumpism might be on the run. Yep, it is true, you win some and you lose some.

Win some, lose some, change is coming to Washington, D.C. and Donald Trump’s life. Join Halli and Matthew Cooper on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

Matthew Cooper is known for his in-depth reporting and analysis from Washington. Mr Cooper has worked for some of America’s most prestigious magazines including Time, Newsweek, The New Republic, National Journal and U.S. News & World Report. He now serves as a contributing editor to Washingtonian magazine.

He has appeared on 60 Minutes,Meet the Press, Hardball, The O’Reilly Factor and This Week with George Stephanopoulos.

If as I do, you love books, boy do I have a book to recommend for you today and an interesting conversation when I speak with the book’s author James Mustich, the co-founder of the acclaimed book catalog, A COMMON READER. In his new catalogue of the greatest books of all times, as compulsively readable, entertaining, surprising, and enlightening as the thousand books it recommends, organized A–Z by the author, the selections takes the reader on a rollercoaster of entries: For example, Flora Thompson’s LARK RISE TO CANDLEFORD is followed by Hunters S. Thompson’s FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS and then by the children’s favorite, ELOISE. The result is an unexpectedly revealing juxtaposition of literature packaged in a beautifully designed book, enlivened throughout with extensive illustrations, its compilation of brief, yet informed and thought-provoking essays accompanying each title, giving the reader a sense of the work’s historical and literary context and the reason why the book is on the list. Extensive, intelligent, it’s a lively library in a book in which readers of all ages will find books to add to their personal collections and to-be-read piles. It is the ultimate gift book for bibliophiles, a veritable treasure trove that brings reading back to the center of our cultural conversation.

DAN PFEIFFER – POD SAVE AMERICA – YES WE (STILL) CAN

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

Dan Pfeiffer

When Dan Pfeiffer, Senior Advisor to President Obama (now co-host of the popular podcast Pod Save America), shut the door to the Oval Office for the last time—closing the chapter on our first African-American President, and leaving the highest office in the land to Donald J. Trump, racist and reality TV star—it was more bitter than sweet. Pfeiffer tells the story of his fascinating years serving President Barack Obama and gives his take on many subjects including how Democrats can win back the Oval Office in his smart, witty, revealing new memoir YES WE (STILL) CAN: POLITICS IN THE AGE OF OBAMA, TWITTER AND TRUMP, an irreverent, no B.S. take on the politics of our time. Pfeiffer will be joining Halli at her table, Wednesday, July 25, the podcast posted 3 pm ET at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, along with author Brian Abrams whose new book is OBAMA: AN ORAL HISTORY 2009-2017.

On November 9, 2016, Dan Pfeiffer, like many of us, woke up wondering WTF had just happened. How had Donald Trump won the White House? How had a decent and thoughtful president been succeeded by a buffoonish reality TV star, and as many of us wondered, asked himself: What do we do now? But instead of throwing away his phone and moving to another country, which he admits were his first and second thoughts, Pfeiffer decided to tell to tell his surreal story, recounting how Barack Obama navigated the insane political forces that created Trump, explaining why everyone got 2016 wrong, and offering a path for where Democrats go from here. In his new book YES WE (STILL) CAN.

Dan PfeifferObtaining unprecedented access to Obamaworld, interviewing aides and advisers in the administration and on the campaigns as well as several elected members of Congress, both Democrat and Republican, journalist Brian Abrams set out to compile an oral history of Barack Obama’s presidency. The result is his book OBAMA: AN ORAL HISTORY 2009-2017 an immersive chronology of the politics and governing behind a landmark American presidency, manna for those who revere President Obama and even those who do not, certainly an important read for all historically minded. Offering behind-the-scenes stories, this amazing compilation illuminates the inner-workings of an administration through more than one hundred exclusive interviews with senior staffers including Jon Favreau, David Axelrod, Rahm Emanuel, Valerie Jarrett, and David Plouffe; cabinet members such as Leon Panetta, Jack Lew, and Arne Duncan; and key lawmakers: Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Joe Lieberman, Scott Brown, and Barbara Boxer, among many others.

TRUMP-PUTIN HELSINKI SUMMIT – PUTIN EXPERT FRANZ SEDELMAYER

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

Trump-Putin Helsinki Summit

Trump-Putin Helsinki Summit. On July 16th President Donald Trump is scheduled to travel to Helsinki, Finland to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin for a summit. The meeting could not be any more controversial in light of Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, which many think is the reason Donald Trump is president. And certainly fueling the fire is the Mueller probe into whether or not Trump colluded with the Russians to gain power, and then obstructed justice to hide the truth. The Halli Casser-Jayne Show welcomes Franz Sedelmayer, a former friend of the Russian President and the only individual to sue and collect money from Vladimir Putin’s Russia. Franz Sedelmayer’s unique story is told in his book WELCOME TO PUTINGRAD, THE INCREDIBLE STORY OF THE ONLY MAN TO COLLECT MONEY FROM VLADIMIR PUTIN. Sedelmeyer’s insight into Putin offers a rare glimpse into the Russian President.

Trump-Putin Helsinki SummitAt the age of 26, Franz Sedelmayer traveled to St. Petersburg, Russia and in a short period of time built an enormously successful police supply and training company. Who was one of young Sedelmayer’s big supporters? The young deputy mayor of St. Petersburg, a former KGB lieutenant colonel. His name? Vladimir Putin. The two young men formed a bond, and at Putin’s request Sedelmayer created and trained the KGB’s first Western-style SWAT team. Then Sedelmayer’s Russian company was expropriated by President Boris Yeltsin and his ambitious, political, and ruthless onetime friend, Vladimir Putin. Why did Putin sell out his friend? Was Putin paid off? In fact, shortly thereafter Putin landed his first Moscow post. Not to take what happened sitting down, Franz Sedelmayer went into battle to retrieve his assets and won—but Russia refused to pay damages. Undeterred, Sedelmayer persevered, waging a 20-year campaign against the Kremlin and its current president, Vladimir Putin, his former friend. His unique story is told in his book WELCOME TO PUTINGRAD, THE INCREDIBLE STORY OF THE ONLY MAN TO COLLECT MONEY FROM VLADIMIR PUTIN.

Trump-Putin Helsinki SummitDonald Trump, Vladimir Putin, foreign affairs, politics, Robert Mueller, Helsinki Summit and insight into the two men who will sit for a one on one meeting with author and Putin authority, Franz Sedelmayer on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.
