BOLTON BOLTS THE DOLT OR THE DOLT BOLTS BOLTON

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

John Bolton bolts the dolt or is it the Dolt Bolted Bolton? That is the operative question this week as Halli and her partner in politics veteran White Correspondent Matthew Cooper tackle the top political stories of the week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. And, we welcome the esteemed editor of the New York Times Book Review and author Pamela Paul in a conversation about one of our favorite topics: Books. The Halli Casser-Jayne Show is always available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and on all your favorite apps.

John Bolton

In the world of politics, there’s a lot to talk about this week beginning with the controversial exit of Donald Trump’s third National Security Advisor, John Bolton. Did Bolton bolt the dolt or did the dolt bolt Bolton? How long will Bolton keep quiet about what’s going on behind the scenes in the White House? Polls are pretty consistent, former Vice President Joe Biden still maintaining his lead in the race and still causing a lot of agita. Is Biden up for the job? Lingering in the background is Montana Governor Steve Bullock, a moderate with a record to sell. Impeachment? Guns? The Taliban? And we’re just beginning.

John Bolton

GAME OF THRONES author George R.R. Martin once said: “A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies…The man who never reads lives only one.” That is no small truth. Esteemed New York Times Book Review Editor and children’s books editor for the New York Times Maria Russo, share GRRM’s point of view and are on a mission to reach out to the young. Together they have written HOW TO RAISE A READER, a book on fostering a lifelong love of books from birth to teens. But make no mistake. This isn’t a primer only for parents. It is a celebration of the book, a reminder for us all that there is a vast world available to us all one bookstore, library, ebook away. In a world where way too much time is spent staring at a screen by teenagers and adults alike, HOW TO RAISE A READER might just be the gift book for all who would rather experience a thousand lives before they die, not just one.

TRUMP DANES TO CALL HIMSELF JESUS…

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

Rashida Tlaib. The Jewish question. Anti-Semitic tropes by Trump who danes to call himself Jesus,the BDS Movement, Israel, Joe Biden and we’re just beginning when Halli and her partner in politics veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper talk all things politics this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

Rashida Tlaib

And oh what a week it was. Anti-Semitism and Israel were the topics of the week when Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, barred Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and her cohort Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from entering Israel and the first two Muslims elected to Congress took their battle with Israel to the airwaves. Trump egged them on, called Jews who voted with the Democratic Party the old anti-Semitic trope “disloyal,” and the Democrats sided with the two Congresswomen, both who themselves have made anti-Semitic statements against Israel and are pro the BDS terrorist movement, the Palestinian economic war machine against the Jewish state. But that’s not all. Joe Biden regained his double-digit lead in the Democratic Party’s presidential contest, while Kamala Harris has taken a precipitous 12-point fall. Is Biden a good bet for the Dems? Why isn’t Steve Bullock, Montana’s popular governor and a moderate Democrat leading a Republican state not getting attention from Democratic Party voters? Is gun control dead? Will the trade war finish off Trump? Is a recession on the horizon? Trump wanted to buy Greenland, and the Danes told him no, so Trump canceled his visit to Denmark? Halli and Matt discuss whether calling Trump crazy is effective, and so much more.

DEMOCRATS ARE SCREWED BECAUSE…

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

Democrats are screwed and the president of the United States, according to former Vice President and 2020 presidential candidate, Joe Biden, has “fanned the flames of white supremacy.” And that’s where we begin on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show this week when joining me at my table is Princeton University professor and author of ENTRENCHMENT, Paul Starr, and my partner in politics, veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper. The podcast is posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and on all your favorite apps.

DEMOCRATS ARE SCREWED BECAUSE...

Once again gun violence has stuck America. A white nationalist terror attack in El Paso, Texas and a mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio, bringing into focus yet again the epidemic of gun violence in America and putting the country’s attention on the President’s racism squarely in the cross-hairs. Who are we as a people? Is the blame only the Republicans or do the Democrats share some of the responsibility for the lack of enactment of commonsense gun legislation? What do we do about the NRA? What do we do about a president who fans the flame of white supremacy? Matt and I have a lot to say on this one, and the state of the Democratic Party’s presidential race. Who is Halli’s favorite candidate? You might be surprised!

DEMOCRATS ARE SCREWED BECAUSE...

In the May 2019 issue of the “The Atlantic,”Princeton University Professor Paul Starr asked: “Is Trumpism a temporary aberration or a long-term phenomenon? Put another way: Will the changes brought about by Donald Trump and today’s Republican party fade away, or will they become entrenched?” He explains ‘entrenchment’ in his new book ENTRENCHMENT, WEALTH, POWER, AND THE CONSTITUTION OF DEMOCRATIC SOCIETIES, and to us all on this week’s show. Be worried, the Democrats are screwed — forever? Stay-tuned for Starr’s predictions for the future of America.

Democrats are screwed. Is Trump responsible for the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio? Is entrenchment killing American democracy? Is there a Democrat who can save the Republic? Can Trump be defeated? Can the NRA? We tackle it all on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and available on all your favorite apps.

MARIANNE WILLIAMSON PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE

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

If Marianne Williamson wasn’t on your radar before this week, I imagine she is today. She is trending on twitter after the Democratic Party debate and for good reason. Marianne Williamson is an original, smart, provocative, unusual, always fascinating. Today on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show I am bringing you an interview with Ms. Williamson that goes back to January 2014. The podcast is posted at Halli Casser-Jayne.com and on all your favorite apps.

Marianne Williamson

It was the first time Marianne was a guest on my show, one of many conversations the presidential candidate and spiritual leader and I have had over many years. I chose this particular interview because it showcases who Marianne Williamson is as a person. It tells the story of her personal journey, and although many want to treat her as ‘out there’, I think you’ll discover Marianne’s personal journey is not all that different from yours and mine. For those who don’t know anything about Marianne Williamson, she is the internationally acclaimed spiritual leader, lecturer, and the author of many published books, many which have been New York Times bestsellers, four of them reaching the coveted number #1 spot, including her breakout hit A RETURN TO LOVE: REFLECTIONS ON THE PRINCIPLES OF A COURSE IN MIRACLES. Marianne has been a popular guest on television programs including Oprah, Larry King Live, Good Morning America and Charlie Rose. In December 2006, a NEWSWEEK magazine poll named Marianne Williamson one of the fifty most influential baby boomers. This interview was recorded New Years Eve 2014, Marianne appearing to hawk her book, A YEAR OF MIRACLES, DAILY DEVOTIONS AND REFLECTIONS, and to talk about her first foray into politics, her run for election to the U.S. House of Representatives from California’s Congressional District 33. it is presented without editing. Enjoy.

Marianne Williamson

In the second half of the show, Matt Cooper, my partner in politics and I handicap the Detroit debates. As always it’s fun and informative conversation. Don’t miss it.

IT’S MUELLER TIME

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

It’s Mueller Time and maybe it’s time for the Democratic Party to sh*t or get off the pot. Are the Republicans creating fantasyland or living in fantasyland? What becomes the presidency of Donald J. Trump? The leadership of Mitch McConnell? How many men in Washington, D.C. will Jeffrey Epstein takedown? It’s this week in politics on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show with Halli and Halli’s partner in all things politics, journalist and veteran White House correspondent  Matthew Cooper on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and available on all your favorite apps.

It's Mueller Time!

It’s Mueller Time! A reluctant Robert Mueller finally made it to Capitol Hill and depending upon who you talk to, his performance was either a bust or a boom. Is Nancy Pelosi protecting her personal fiefdom or the Democratic Party — maybe both — or hurting Dems chances to defeat Donald Trump in Election 2020? Is Donald Trump the most dangeous man in America or would that be Mitch McConnell? Is Devin Nunes a nut or is there a method to his madness? Jim Jordan? Does Trump get a second term or a prison term? These questions explored and we’re just beginning. What a show! Here we go!

It’s Mueller Time. The future of the Democratic Party. Who is winning in the fight between the Democrats and Donald Trump? Will Nancy Pelosi begin an impeachment inquiry?

Is Donald Trump a racist?

From there Halli and Matt move on to review the week in politics beginning with the question of the week: Is President Donald Trump a racist? Or is he a demagogue? The President told four Democratic Congresswomen of color to go back to the countries where they came from. Was Congress right to condemn Trump for his incendiary tweet, that many say was racist? And what of the “Squad” the four freshman Congresswomen continually stirring the pot? Are they racists, too? What’s happening to Bernie Sanders? Is Kamala Harris Trump’s new target? And we’re just beginning. What a show! See you there!

Is Trump a racist? Is the country as fractured as it was in the lead up to the Civil War? Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, which is the Democrat best hope to defeat Donald Trump?

TRIAL OF THE CENTURY with ABC NEWS’ DAN ABRAMS – POLITICS REVIEW

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

The Trial of the Century? In his new book THEODORE ROOSEVELT FOR THE DEFENSE, THE COURTROOM BATTLE TO SAVE HIS LEGACY ABC News anchor Dan Abrams talks Teddy Roosevelt, Donald Trump and Joe Biden and what was then The Trial of the Century, no not the O.J. Simpson trial that made Abrams a household name, but the one starring President Theodore Roosevelt and that’s we’re we begin this week when Abrams joins Halli in conversation and Halli and Halli’s partner in politics veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper slice and dice all things politics on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show with Matthew Cooper, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

Trial of the century

We begin this week with a conversation with ABC News anchor Dan Abrams, entrepreneur and author of the new book THEODORE ROOSEVELT FOR THE DEFENSE, THE COURTROOM BATTLE TO SAVE HIS LEGACY. It is clear Dan Abrams never sleeps. The chief legal affairs correspondent for ABC News as well as the host of top-rated Live PD on A&E Network and The Dan Abrams Show: Where Politics Meets the Law on SiriusXM in his spare time writes book. On the heels of his New York Times bestselling LINCOLN’S LAST TRIAL: THE MURDER CASE THAT PROPELLED HIM co-authored with his writing partner David Fisher, the new book explores what was considered “the trial of the century” before that other trial that made Abrams a household name, The O.J. Simpson Trial. Roosevelt, always fascinating, takes on a new light in Abrams eminently readable and eye-opening new book.

From there Halli and Matt move on to review the week in politics:  Democratic Party front-runner Joe Biden does what some call a flip-flop on his position on the Hyde Amendment, causing quite a stir on the left, as polls continue to show Biden way out in front in the presidential contest, and Donald Trump a loser against most of the Democratic Party’s possible presidential nominees. Trump goes even more loopy over the purported Mexico deal, than talking to a press gaggle appears more loopy than usual, his loopiness becoming par for the course, even off the links. Is Nancy Pelosi responsible for Trump’s slight gain in the polls as she continues to fight an impeachment inquiry, as Jerry Nadler starts to lose his cool at her resistance to There’s more. What a show! See you there!
