IT TAKES A WOMAN IN POLITICS

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

It Takes A Woman is one of the great songs from one of the great Broadway musicals of all-time Hello Dolly and women are very much at the forefront of our political lives today. Think of the most powerful women in America today: Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Dr.Deborah Birx who, love her scarves or not, holds our lives in her Trump-powered hands. And think that in January 2019, the largest number of women ever elected to Congress was sworn in—87 in the house and 23 in the Senate. This week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show we take a look at the power of women in the 116th Congress with veteran New York Times Capitol Hill reporter, Jennifer Steinhauer, whose new book THE FIRSTS: THE INSIDE STORY OF THE WOMEN RESHAPING CONGRESS is a must read. As always, Halli and her partner in politics, Matthew Cooper, slice and dice all things politics in this week’s conversation on the political scene. The podcast is posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and is available on all your favorite apps.

IT TAKES A WOMAN IN POLITICS

We begin with Halli and Matt. Over sixty-thousand Americans are dead from Covid-19 and the virus continues to spread. Yet Trump is pushing to open up the economy. Is he trying to kill us all? Republican governors are going along with the plan, ignoring the standards set by Trump’s own task force. Presumed Democratic Party presidential candidate, Joe Biden, is rising in the polls, and Trump is not happy with his campaign’s team. Is long-time South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham’s re-election bid in trouble? Where oh where is Kim Jong Un? And we’re just beginning.

It Takes a Woman

It takes a woman doesn’t begin to cut it. But one hundred years after earning the right to vote, women make up only twenty-five percent of Congress. Still, the history-making Class of ’19 includes many remarkable firsts. And Rhashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Deb Haaland, Abigail Spamburger, Ilhan Omar, Kysten Sinema and her hot pink dress and metallic heels, Katie “Yes, We have to fix this shit” Porter became household names. How are they making a difference? The story of this transitional moment has been chronicled by veteran New York Times Capitol Hill reporter, Jennifer Steinhauer, who has been following this historic transition from day one. She reports her findings in her new book THE FIRSTS: THE INSIDE STORY OF THE WOMEN RESHAPING CONGRESS, a dizzying ride into what makes a Congresswoman, and how they navigate that ride.Tune in.

It takes a woman, Nancy Pelosi, Dr. Birx, the Coronavirus, Donald Trump, Joe Biden and Election 2020, Stacey Abrams, Governor Ron DeSantis and Florida, Florida, Florida, and we’re just beginning.

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.
