IMPEACHMENT TRAIN RUNS THROUGH UKRAINE…

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

Doris Kearns Goodwin, I have a question for you. Are leaders born or made? Where does ambition come from? How does adversity affect the growth of leadership? Does the leader make the times or do the times make the leader? As the impeachment train wends its way down the tracks these questions and more seem uniquely relevant. And it is the reason why I invited historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, the author of LEADERSHIP IN TURBULENT TIMES to discuss Donald Trump, leadership, and so much more this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com. And, as we do every week, my partner in politics former White House corespondent, Matthew Cooper and I will slice and dice all things politics.

Doris Kearns Goodwin

In her #1 New York Times bestseller, LEADERSHIP IN TURBULENT TIMES, now out in paperback, Doris Kearns Goodwin combines her signature storytelling with essential lessons from four of our nation’s presidents—Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Lyndon B. Johnson. She writes that no common pattern describes the trajectory of leadership. Although set apart in background, abilities, and temperament, these men shared a fierce ambition and a deep-seated resilience that enabled them to surmount uncommon adversity. At their best, all four were guided by a sense of moral purpose. And then there was Donald Trump. Are leadership and moral purpose a thing of the past? My good friend and Pulitzer Prize winning author and baseball aficionado, Doris Kearns Goodwin joins me on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. Do tune in!

Doris Kearns Goodwin

And as always, my partner in politics, Matthew Cooper and I slice and dice all things politics, this week our focus on impeachment, and a whole lot more.

Doris Kearns Goodwin, LEADERSHIP IN TURBULENT TIMES, Donald Trump, impeachment, political news, Lindsey Graham, Ukraine, quid pro quo…we tackle it all this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show always available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and on all your favorite apps.

BARRELING TOWARD IMPEACHMENT

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

Are we barreling toward impeachment? It’s a whole new political world this week when we learned that the President of the United States admitted to using the powers of his office to target Joe Biden, his potential rival in Election 2020 and Biden’s son, by pressuring the Ukrainian government to fabricate a scandal. Top that with the revelation that a whistleblower had filed a complaint against the President Donald Trump. And then top that with the fact that the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, a seemingly reluctant warrior has announced there will be an official Impeachment Inquiry into Donald Trump. Joining me at my table on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show is my partner in politics, former White House Correspondent Matthew Cooper for an in-depth conversation.

Barreling Toward Impeachment

Roll at the barrel, yes we are on the impeachment roll and where all of this lands nobody quite knows. We are barreling toward impeachment. Here’s some of what we know: We do know that according to the whistleblower, the White House tried to “lock down” records of the Trump Ukraine call, the transcripts released to the public incriminating, to say the least. It appears that the President of the United States Trump used the power of his office to solicit foreign interference in Election 2020 and that Trump’s new fixer and private attorney, Rudy Giuliani, met an adviser to the Ukraine president in August and that the Acting DNI Chief Joseph Maguire, a Trump appointee, appeared to play games with the release of the whistleblower’s statement.

As the barrel rolls, we are in a whole new territory. The players include President Trump, an unidentified whistleblower, the Acting DNI Chief Maguire, Attorney General Bill Barr, Rudy Giuliani, Speaker Pelosi, Rep. Adam Schiff, Vice President Mike Pence and we’re just beginning. Strap yourselves in and roll out the barrel, we’re in for a barrel of fun on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show podcast with Matthew Cooper!

Michael Bloomberg

Michael Bloomberg chooses to become a kingmaker rather than a presidential candidate…the Democrats play footsie with socialism…Ilhan Omar and anti-Semitism, House Democrats open a sweeping corruption probe into Trump’s world, and a look at the life of Theodore Roosevelt with historian David Pietrusza and his book TR’S LAST WAR: THEODORE ROOSEVELT, THE GREAT WAR, AND A JOURNEY OF TRIUMPH AND TRAGEDY and we’re just beginning. Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show and our weekly political review with Halli and veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper 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. There’s a lot of news and a lot of questions. Now that Michael Bloomberg is out, will former Vice President Joe Biden toss his hat into the presidential ring? Do the Democrats have an anti-Semite in their midst and what to do about Rep. Ilhan Omar?

Michael Bloomberg

In our second half-hour, Halli speaks with author and historian David Pietrusza about his fascinating book TR’S LAST WAR: THEODORE ROOSEVELT, THE GREAT WAR, AND A JOURNEY OF TRIUMPH AND TRAGEDY, a lively, witty, take on one of America’s greatest presidents. As seen through the lens of the Bull Moose, the 1916 presidential campaign, America’s entry into the Great War in 1917, Woodrow Wilson’s presidency, Pietrusza not only transports readers with his dramatic portraits of TR, his hated rival Wilson, and politics in wild flux, but also poignantly chronicles the horrific price a family pays in war and so much more.

Michael Bloomberg as kingmaker, Jerry Nadler writes 81 letters, is Roger Stone on his way to the pokey sooner rather than later? these stories and more when journalists Halli Casser-Jayne and Matthew Cooper talk politics and Halli talks Theodore Roosevelt with author David Pietrusza on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, and on all your favorite apps.

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.

Dan Pfeiffer, Pod Save America, Brian Abrams, President Barack Obama, Donald Trump, Democrats, Republicans, politics, history, books, authors — we have it all for you on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show the new podcast posted Wednesday, July 25, 3 pm ET at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

Just PICK THREE!

M.L.B. OPENING DAY 2018

M.L.B. Opening Day 2018, Baseball World Series history, two great authors and two great books to celebrate America’s National Pastime come together on TALKish, The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when joining me at my table, at bat first, Kevin Cook to talk about his book ELECTRIC OCTOBER, SEVEN WORLD SERIES GAMES, SIX LIVES, FIVE MINUTES OF FAME THAT LASTED FOREVER and up second New York Yankee’s historian and former publicity director Marty Appel, author of the great biography CASEY STENGEL, BASEBALL’S GREATEST CHARACTER. Let’s play ball.

Kevin Cook’s eminently readable book ELECTRIC OCTOBER, SEVEN WORLD SERIES GAMES, SIX LIVES, FIVE MINUTES OF FAME THAT LASTED FOREVER takes us out to the ballgame. when we celebrate M.L.B. Opening Day 2018.  The year: 1947. The World Series “the most exciting ever” in the words of Joe DiMaggio, with a decade’s worth of drama packed into seven games between the mighty New York Yankees and underdog Brooklyn Dodgers. The players: Six men who found themselves plucked from obscurity to shine on the sport’s greatest stage. For some of these men, the ’47 Series was a memory to hold on to. For others, it would haunt them to the end of their days. And for us, Kevin Cook offers insights—at once heartbreaking and uplifting—into what fame and heroism truly mean. Small-town boys, most of them, each one a hometown hero, they spent a week in the national spotlight and then faded away, forgotten. Yet Cook’s deep reporting and lively narrative goes beyond baseball history to explore how an encounter with greatness can change a man’s life forever. These six lives combine to tell a great American story of fame, friendship, teamwork, memory, and life’s biggest challenge: how we deal with the cards that fate deals us. Kevin Cook is the author of the award-winning TOMMY’S HONOR (now a feature film). He is a former senior editor at Sports Illustrated who has written for The New York Times, Men’s Journal, GQ, Playboy, Smithsonian, and Details.

M.L.B. OPENING DAY 2018Casey Stengel once said that “There comes a time in every man’s life, and I’ve had plenty of them,” and indeed he did. There was nobody like Casey before him, and certainly there has been no one like him since, and no one defined baseball more than he did. For more than fifty years, Casey Stengel lived baseball. First as the only person in history to play for or manage all the New York teams, including the Dodgers, Giants, Yankees, and Mets, and then as a manager, where he made his biggest mark on the game revolutionizing the role in New York and beyond, all while winning an astounding ten pennants and seven World Series Championships – including five consecutive titles with the Yankees. But who was Charles ‘Casey’ Stengel? As the historian of the NY Yankees, no one is more qualified than Marty Appel to write, CASEY STENGEL: BASEBALL’S GREATEST CHARACTER the definitive biography. Marty Appel takes us back to the old ballgame on M.L.B. Opening Day 2018.

OUT OF AFRICA ON THE HALLI CASSER-JAYNE HOUR

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

OUT OF AFRICA

Two stories out of Africa are the focus of The Halli Casser-Jayne Hour, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com. Up first, a visit with journalist Stephanie Hanes the author of a highly-controversial new book, WHITE MAN’S GAME: SAVING ANIMALS, REBUILDING EDEN & OTHER MYTHS OF CONSERVATION IN AFRICA, a thought-provoking exposé of the troubling realities of Western conservation efforts in Africa. And in our second half-hour a visit to Maasailand with Joni Binder, the author of MILE 46: FACE TO FACE IN MAASAILAND. You’re in for two truly fascinating conversations on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show.

Stephanie Hanes has worked across the African continent her journalism appearing in dozens of publications, including The Christian Science Monitor as well as the PBSNewHour. In her new book WHITE MAN’S GAME, Hanes presents a provocative account that profoundly challenges the way we think about philanthropy and conservation. In an eye-opening examination, Hanes addresses the problems that arise when Westerners try to “fix” complex, messy situations in the developing world, acting with best intentions yet potentially overlooking the wishes of the people who live there. Beneath the uplifting stories we tell ourselves about helping Africans often lies a dramatic misunderstanding of what the locals actually need and want. WHITE MAN’S GAME is a gripping narrative of environmentalists and insurgents, poachers and tycoons, elephants and angry spirits that profoundly challenges the way we think about philanthropy and conservation.

Joni Binder’s book MILE 46: FACE TO FACE IN MAASAILAND is a fascinating photographic and literary memoir about her time in Kenya living with the Maasai that underscores the urgent need for global community awareness and support for women who are disenfranchised by their own cultures. A wife and mother of two, Binder has served as president of the Modern Art Council at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and has become a strong advocate of arts education as a Fine Arts Committee member and Education Committee co-chair for the Diplomatic Reception Rooms of the U.S. Department of State. She is currently helping to lead an international arts-driven campaign with Futures Without Violence and The Representation Project to raise awareness about healthy masculinity and its role in eliminating domestic violence.

FLIGHT OF CHARLES LINDBERGH AND APOLLO 8

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

flight

The flight of Apollo 8 and Charles Lindbergh, The Spirit of St. Louis, NASA, astronauts, all critical to American aviation are the subject of The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when joining Halli at her table are science editor and senior writer for Time magazine Jeffrey Kluger, author of APOLLO 8: THE THRILLING STORY OF THE FIRST MISSION TO THE MOON and flyboy and author of THE FLIGHT, CHARLES LINDBERG’S DARING AND IMMORTAL 1927 TRANSATLANTIC CROSSING, Dan Hampton.

flightThis year marks the 90th anniversary of the first solo transatlantic flight, and the first non-stop flight between North America and mainland Europe of legendary aviator Charles Lindbergh. Who better to write the story of Charles Lindbergh’s 1927 Transatlantic Crossing than acclaimed aviator and aviation historian Dan Hampton the New York Times bestselling author of VIPER PILOT, LORDS OF THE SKY, and THE HUNTER KILLERS. Dan is a graduate of the USAF Fighter Weapons School, USN Top Gun School and USAF Special Operations School. Placing himself squarely in the cockpit with Lindbergh, Hampton’s book THE FLIGHT: CHARLES LINDBERGH’S DARING AND IMMORTAL 1927 TRANSATLANTIC CROSSING offers a fly-boy’s perspective to bring alive the danger, uncertainty, and heroic accomplishment of Lindbergh’s death-defying, non-stop flight across the Atlantic in The Spirit of St. Louis – an achievement that brought the world to a halt in May 1927 and made Lucky Lindy also nicknamed ‘Slim’, the most celebrated man of his time, and the most controversial.

flightThe story of Apollo 8 begins in August 1968. NASA was losing the space race with Russia, with earliest estimates of going to the moon still more than two years in the future, and President Kennedy’s promise to put a man on the moon by the end of the decade was sure to be broken. The United States was deep into the Cold War and in the middle of a year of violence abroad and at home: Vietnam, the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy, the Democratic convention in Chicago descending into violence. Then, in the midst of all of that turmoil NASA scrapped their meticulous mission schedules and asked Frank Borman, Jim Lovell and Bill Anders to orbit the moon, and they would do it in just four months despite the substantial risks, the Apollo 8 mission, equal parts fearless and reckless, ingenious and impulsive – told in APOLLO 8: THE THRILLING STORY OF THE FIRST MISSION TO THE MOON written by science editor and senior writer for Time Jeffrey Kluger, also the co-author of the bestselling book APOLLO 13, on which the beloved film is based.

HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE DAY: WRITERS PAM JENOFF JESSICA SHATTUCK

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

holocaust Remembrance Day

As we commemorate HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE DAY this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show we visit with two authors best known for their Holocaust historical fiction, New York Times bestselling author Pam Jenoff and New York Times Notable Author and PEN finalist Jessica Shattuck.

Holocaust Remembrance DayFor Pam Jenoff it all began with the astonishing success of her THE KOMMANDANT’S GIRL the World War II heartrending, Quill-nominated International Bestseller. Many successful books later she comes to us with her new title, THE ORPHAN’S TALE, already on the New York Times Bestseller List. THE ORPHAN’S TALE is set amid the unconventional world of a traveling circus, the novel bringing together two women—both refugees from their own pasts and each attempting to live under the radar during the Nazi incursion. Drawing on a little a little-known, real-life Nazi-run program, the Lebensborn Program, in which Jewish babies were ripped from their families and sent by train to concentration camps and the circuses of the era that sheltered Jews during the War, THE ORPHAN’S TALE exposes the light in the shadows of World War II.

Holocaust Remembrance DayAuthor Jessica Shattuck’s grandparents were Nazi’s. She admitted the truth in a recent New York Times op ed. “My grandparents were Nazis,” Shattuck wrote. “It took me until recently to be able to say — or write — this.” It was when Shattuck came upon a picture of her grandfather in his Nazi uniform that Shattuck could no longer deny the truth, even though she had had and loved her grandmother who Shattuck says did not seem temperamentally suited to hate. Understanding why and how this woman Shattuck knew and loved was swept up in a movement that became synonymous with evil led to Shattuck’s writing her gripping new novel THE WOMEN IN THE CASTLE (currently on the New York Times Bestseller List). Turbulent, disturbing, fraught, haunting, THE WOMEN IN THE CASTLE provides rarely seen insight into the lives of ordinary Germans during the Nazi era, providing a perspective rarely examined in the voluminous literature of the Second World War.

Holocaust Remembrance Day, Nazi, Germany, World War II, historical fiction, Jewish literature two interesting conversations with bestselling authors Pam Jenoff and Jessica Shattuck on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday, April 19, the podcast posted 3 pm ET.
