Jackie Speir

Jackie Speier, Congresswoman, and Halli’s partner in politics veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper join Halli 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.

CAN AMERICA’S POLITICAL PARTIES BE SAVED?

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

America's political parties

America’s political parties are broken and they need fixing. So says the authors of a provocative new book, Ian Shapiro and Frances McCall Rosenbluth in their new thought-provoking book RESPONSIBLE PARTIES: SAVING DEMOCRACY FROM ITSELF. Ian Shapiro joins Halli, along with 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. Beginning with Trump’s government shutdown, now the longest in history, exploring the news that the FBI was investigating President Trump as a possible Russian asset before Robert Mueller was appointed Special Counsel, and the even more startling news that  President Donald Trump went to “extraordinary lengths” to keep details from his conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin secret – even from officials within his own administration. And that’s just where we begin.

America's political parties

In the second half-hour, Halli interviews Ian Shapiro, the co-author of the fascinating new book RESPONSIBLE PARTIES: SAVING DEMOCRACY FROM ITSELF. In their book Yale electoral expert Frances Rosenbluth and Yale political theorist Ian Shapiro dissect the political party system to argue that devolving power to the grass roots is not the solution; it is part of the problem. And that efforts to decentralize political decision-making have made governments and especially political parties less effective and less able to address constituent concerns. They argue that to revive confidence in governance, we must restore power to political parties, the core institutions of representative democracy.

America’s political parties, Donald Trumps as Russian asset, did Trump purposely destroy all evidence of his private talks with Vladimir Putin, is Mitch McConnell alive…those topics and more when journalists Halli Casser-Jayne and Matthew Cooper, and Yale political theorist Ian Shapiro talk politics on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

MICHELLE DEEMMorality? Politics? An oxymoron? In her recently released book, SAVING AMERICA’S GRACE author and marriage and family therapist, Michelle Deen, lends her considerably effective voice to a discussion of morality in politics and culture and the search for a common ground in our deeply divided national political argument. According to Deem, politics and family dynamics are intertwined. Mapping out a blueprint for change, Deen challenges both the Left and the Right to jointly construct a new and clear moral objective to rebuild a national character that inspires and leads to an American culture that is smart, strong, compassionate, empathetic, and plays by rules that shed the paternalistic authoritarian, religiosity of the past that has divided our dysfunctional nation.

Legendary broadcaster and author Lou Dobbs, moralist Michelle Deem, politics, Putin, Donald Trump, Republican, Democrat, the culture war, religion, family values — we have it all on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. For more information visit Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

First 100 days

Donald Trump’s First 100 days. Will he be impeached or will he survive as President of the United States for his full four-year term?

Trump would defeat the heavily favored Democrat, Hillary Clinton, to win the presidential elections. The pollsters wish they could have fared as well. Hillary acolytes wish he had broken his winning streak. But all might not be lost for those who are still nursing the Clinton loss. In his new book, THE CASE FOR IMPEACHMENT, Professor Lichtman turns his focus to President Donald Trump and his next forecast – that it is not a question of IF President Trump will be impeached but a question of WHEN!
