REP. JACKIE SPEIER AND POLITICAL ROUNDTABLE

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

Jackie Speir

Jackie Speier, Congresswoman, 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.

In our first half-hour, Halli and Matt slice and dice the week’s political news. Joe Biden isn’t even in the race for the White House and he’s already facing head winds. Does the Democratic Party eat its own? Kamala Harris, Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders all took in quite a monetary haul, not so much Elizabeth Warren? Attorney General Bill Barr didn’t make the deadline demanded by the Democrats to submit the full Mueller Report to Congress. How ugly will the quest for the full document get? And about that Border “crisis” — that isn’t a crisis but is being called a crisis because Trump likes a crisis? And we’re just beginning, here we go.

Jackie Speier

In our 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. Speier 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.

Congresswoman Jackie Speier, Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, the “crisis” on the border, the Mueller Report — Matthew Cooper and Halli have fun and bring you insightful political conversation on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

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

What about Bob? Trump after the Mueller Report

What about Bob? Trump After The Mueller Report, Attorney General Barr’s letter to Congress, collusion with Russia, obstruction of justice, no exoneration…President Trump, for the moment, dodges a bullet 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 needing answers. But this is a week more of unanswered questions than those answered by Attorney General William Barr in his 4-page summation of the Mueller Report delivered to Congress, the report still hidden behind closed doors. Will it ever come to light? Why couldn’t Robert Mueller exonerate President Trump? How did Mueller arrive at no collusion? After being sworn in as Attorney General, did Barr force the Mueller probe to an abrupt halt? Was Mueller more concerned with protecting the jury pool for a future grand jury? Or this one: Was there a a full investigation of Trump’s intent regarding obstruction of justice?

Halli and Matt get into the weeds and offer up some surprises when they take to the airwaves. What about Bob? Trump After the Mueller Report. What comes next for Trump? What about the motives of Attorney General Barr, no exoneration, did Trump or didn’t he obstruct justice? These questions and more when journalists Halli Casser-Jayne and Matthew Cooper talk politics on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and on all your favorite apps.

Beto, Bernie, Harris, Warren can any of the announced Democratic Party candidates for POTUS beat the man waiting in the wings, Joe Biden? 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.

George Conway’s war with Trump. Beto O’Rourke enters the presidential race.

In our second half-hour, Halli speaks with the author of GRAND CANYON FOR SALE, PUBLIC LANDS VERSUS PRIVATE INTERESTS IN THE ERA OF CLIMATE CHANGE, Stephen Nash. 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. Never has the future of the Grand Canyon National Park been in such peril thanks to decades of twisted incentives, rotten politics, and feckless regulators endangering some 28 percent of the national soil. 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.

Paul Manafort sentencing, the Democratic Party takes a trip to Milwaukee, Trump and Boeing, Trump’s Emergency Declaration, the Roger Stone saga…these stories and more when journalists Halli Casser-Jayne and Matthew Cooper talk politics and Halli talks Climate Change and our National Park land on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, and on all your favorite apps.

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.

In the second half-hour, Halli is joined by veteran CNN political Analyst, Bill Schneider whose book STANDOFF: HOW AMERICA BECAME UNGOVERNABLE takes a look at how in the last fifty years, American politics has gone from Camelot to Game of Thrones. It’s not a pretty picture, and Schneider pulls no punches. From Schneider’s perspective of covering American politics since 1964 we get a bird’s eye view of what went wrong — and right — and even some ideas on how the American people can be the arbiters of change, if their politicians won’t be.
