We tackle that question and meet with one of America’s great women photographers, Lynn Davis, the focus of a new, extraordinary film that takes a look at climate change but is something truly unique.

JUST SAY CUOMO

How quickly the tide can change in politics. Only a few months ago, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was the darling of America, his compassion-filled daily updates on his state’s battle with coronavirus, a salve to the bombastic, unfeeling then President Trump much watch TV. Now after three young women have accused the governor of sexual harassment, the love is gone. And we as a society are back to that question of what’s credible? What’s fair? Must we believe a woman just because she says so? Have we swung too far in believing men at the expense of men’s rights? There’s much to discuss and Halli and Matt do, and a whole lot more from the HR-1 Bill, to the antics of Republican governors and their cheeky handling of coronavirus, to President Biden’s stimulus package and oh, so much more. Tune in, won’t you!

Sometimes we cross paths with something so astonishing, so unexpected, it just takes our breath away, And that is what will happen to you when you watch the new documentary MELTDOWN a film that features the stunning work of renowned photographer Lynn Davis and the profound insight of climate scientist Tony Leiserowitz  as they confront the effects of climate change in a remote area of the world, Illulisat, Greenland, “ground Zero” for the climate crisis, too many refuse to acknowledge as a real threat to civilization. Produced as a small, intimate conversation, the film’s stage the large, stunning canvas of glaciers and ice sheets, MELTDOWN is profoundly enlightening, a remarkable convergence of art, science, and humanity, where beauty and tragedy share the stage, a starkly thoughtful lesson for those who don’t know that we are the earth and the earth is us, we are the one. Davis, the award-winning “Ice” photographer, friend of the greats like Imogen Cunningham, Robert Mapplethorpe, is one of the most fascinating artists of our time, as you’ll learn from our interview.

KILLING PARTISAN DIVIDE – INSIDE STEVE BANNON

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

When not even a pandemic that has killed almost 50,000 Americans can heal the partisan divide, America is in big trouble. And that’s where we begin this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when Halli and her partner in politics, Matthew Cooper, slice and dice all things politics in their weekly take on the political scene. Then it is on to a truly eye-opening conversation, an exploration into the mind and heart of Trump creator, Steve Bannon, with the author of the new book WAR FOR ETERNITY: INSIDE STEVE BANNON’S FAR-RIGHT CIRCLE OF GLOBAL POWER BROKERS, Benjamin R. Teitelbaum. The podcast is posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and is available on all your favorite apps.

KILLING PARTISAN DIVIDE - STEVE BANNON

Seriously, when not even a pandemic that has killed almost 50,000 Americans can heal the partisan divide, America has some soul-searching to do. But there might be a glimmer of hope. Nearly 75% of all Americans agree that they disagree with Donald Trump and his Republican governors who think “there are more important things than life,” and it’s time for America to go back to work. And though you might not have noticed it, there is an election going on. Trump has his daily campaign rallies disguised as Covid-19 briefings, but Democratic Party presumed nominee Joe Biden might be benefiting from those rallies, much to Trump’s chagrin. Biden is ahead in many key state polls. There’s a lot more to discuss, the newly-formed coalition government in Israel is on the list, too. Tune in.

STEVE BANNON

In our second half-hour Halli introduces you to the new book, WAR FOR ETERNITY: INSIDE STEVE BANNON’S FAR-RIGHT CIRCLE OF GLOBAL POWER BROKERS and the book’s author Benjamin R. Teitelbaum. Kirkus called the book “breathless and provocative, with thick coats of conspiracy theory, of the doctrines that drive Steve Bannon.” If you’re looking for the answer to some of Trump’s most crazy, WAR FOR ETERNITY is the book for you. As if there isn’t enough to scare us in this time of the Covid-19 Pandemic, the contents of Teitelbaum’s book will. From a series of interviews with his subject, Steve Bannon, Teitelbaum takes us deep into the foundations and guiding documents of the ideology that guides Bannon, the author and champion of Trump’s policies, including the border wall, the Muslim ban, his anti-immigrant nationalism.

The partisan divide, the radical Republican Party, Covid-19, has Dr. Birx turned into Trump’s Twirl Girl? Floriduh, Floriduh, Floriduh,  Election 2020, and a deep dive into the mind of Steve Bannon with author Benjamin R. Teitelbaum…all on 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.
