BLACK LIVES MATTER, THEY REALLY, REALLY DO!

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

Black Lives Matter, they really, really do! America took a collective sigh of relief when justice was served and former cop Derek Chauvin was found guilty of the murder of George Floyd on all counts, the culmination of a trying week in America as we all impatiently waited for the verdict. This week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show we take a look at the Chauvin trial, its conclusion, and what it means for racism in America. But that’s not all. That’s just where we being when Halli and her partner in politics, former White House correspondent and Newsweek and Time alum, Matthew Cooper, slice and dice the political news of the week.

BLACK LIVES MATTER

Yes, black lives do matter, and justice was served this week. But over at Fox “News” maybe not so much. Tucker Carlson and Greg Gutfeld are on our radar this week. So is Matt Gaetz and Covid-19, and as always, Floriduh, Floriduh, Floriduh sneaks into our conversation. Is Senator Marco Rubio vulnerable to a challenge by Florida Rep. Val Demings? And what’s the back story to the relationship between President Joe Biden and Russia’s President Vladimir Putin? Should Israel be allowed to stop Iran from developing a nuclear weapon? Netanyahu has done a helluva job so far. So why is the U.S. wanting to to stick its nose in? We heard from two former presidents this week. “The Former Guy” granted a full-length interview to Sean Hannity. Does anybody care? Former President George W. Bush gave his Republican Party quite a verbal licking. Yes, there’s even more to discuss. Please tune in.

BLACK LIVES MATTER

Black Lives Matter, they really, really do. It’s off to the pokey for Derek Chauvin. President Joe Biden, Vladimir Putin, Ukraine, Majorie Taylor Greene and America First. Yep, there’s a lot to get to and here we go.

FASCISM, IT CAN’T HAPPEN HERE – SCOTT TUROW

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

Fascism. With apologies to Upton Sinclair and his semi-satirical 1935 political novel published during the heyday of fascism in Europe, IT CAN’T HAPPEN HERE…yes it can! And that’s just one of the topics we explore this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when joining Halli at her table is NY Times bestselling author and legal genius, Scott Turow, and former White House correspondent, and Time and Newsweek veteran, Matthew Cooper.

FASCISM IT CAN'T HAPPEN HERE WITH SCOTT TUROW

We begin with Halli and Matt and their weekly take on all things politics. There are a lot of questions to ask. Has Donald Trump succeeded in turning the United States into a fascist state? Will the cold-blooded killers of African-American, George Floyd suffer the consequences for their actions? Has history finally caught up with Donald Trump, Trump now the wrong president for the times? Can Joe Biden continue his momentum into the fall election? Remember the Coronavirus pandemic? We do. And will General Mattis have the final word over Trump? Tune in.

FASCISM IT CAN'T HAPPEN HERE WITH SCOTT TUROW
