THE GAETZ TO SOLVING AMERICA'S IMMIGRATION PROBLEM

Matthew Gaetz and Gaetzgate is still at the top of political news and doesn’t seem to be going away. In fact, Gaetz’s problems only seem to be escalating drip by drip by drip. But that’s not all. The Derek Chauvin trial is captivating everyone as the cable channels offer wall to wall coverage. Covid-19 and the Johnson & Johnson vaccine problem are on everybody’s mind. Are you paying attention to the push back by American corporations to the Republican’s efforts to suppress people of color’s votes? We are, and infrastructure, Senator Joe Manchin, Iran, and the horrible death of young, African-American Dante Wright. There’s so much more. Please tune in.

In our second half-hour Halli introduces you to Warren Binford. A lawyer and an international children’s rights scholar. Ms. Binford is one of only a handful of private citizens selected to inspect border facilities where migrant children are detained. Warren co-founded Project Amplify in 2019 to allow the voices of migrant children to be heard. And now Project Amplify is helping to tell the heartbreaking experiences of the children in her gut-wrenching new book HEAR MY VOICE: THE TESTIMONIES OF CHILDREN DETAINED AT THE SOUTHERN BORDER OF THE UNITED STATES, featuring the brilliant art of 17 Mexican and Mexican-American artists

DONALD TRUMP IS HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH

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

This week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show join Halli and her guests, her partner in politics, journalist and former White House correspondent, Matthew Cooper. And in our second half-hour meet prominent scholar and author Dr. Stephen Krasner, who is challenging America’s longtime foreign policy in his provocative new book HOW TO MAKE LOVE TO A DESPOT. 

Donald Trump Is Hazardous to Your Health

We begin with Halli and Matt and some startling statistics:  Seventy-seven thousand American souls are dead, The U.S. has more  confirmed cases of Coronavirus than any other country. Americans died from Covid-19 at the rate of about one every 42 seconds in the last month. Thirty-three million Americans are unemployed, and 1 in 5 American children are going to bed hungry. Given all of that, Trump is asking the American people to risk their lives and return to the workplace. What? For a plate of sushi? Trump blames China for it all, and that’s just where we begin.  

In our second half-hour we turn to foreign policy. In the age of a global pandemic, an important conversation on American foreign policy is warranted. Consider that since the end of the Second World War, the United States has sunk hundreds of billions of dollars into foreign economies in the hope that its investments would help remake the world in its own image. So far the returns have been disappointing. As country after country failed to conform to America’s Utopian hopes, a more Dystopian vision has taken hold, as America now recoils from engaging. Aware of these problems, prominent scholar Dr. Stephen Krasner, challenges America’s longtime foreign policy in his new book HOW TO MAKE LOVE TO A DESPOT. The Stanford University professor and former diplomat urges policymakers to get real, accept the facts on the ground and recalibrate U.S. expectations to more achievable goals abroad. 

Donald Trump is hazardous to your health. The Coronavirus Pandemic, Election 2020, China, U.S. Foreign Policy in the Age of Trump, food stamps, Joe Biden, Mourning in America ad, Florida…tune into The Halli Casser-Jayne Show the podcast always available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, on all your favorite apps, and on your Alexa device, too.

FUEL FOR MORNING THOUGHT…

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

Hi my friends!

It’s Friday? Really? How did that happen? I guess the old adage time flies when you’re having a good time is true. And a good time we had this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show with a show that proved that we are, indeed, Talk Radio For Fine Minds. We delved into The REAL Greatest Generation in a discussion of Washington, Jefferson and Lafayette with historians from Mt. Vernon and Monticello, and journalist and author of Lafayette: The Ideal General, Marc Leepson.  While I know to some history can be dry, I think you’ll be presently surprised by the personality-filled conversation. You can listen here, but all of our shows, including this one are available FREE to download from iTunes.

But back to it’s Friday, and as we always do on Friday, here are some links to good reading for your weekend fare.

Have a fun-filled weekend, all!
