NOT THE “PERFECT” ACQUITTAL…

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

Not the “PERFECT” Acquittal, the State of the Union, the Iowa Debacle, the Coronavirus, and just when you thought there were no heroes among us along comes a few, Senators Mitt Romney (R-UT) and Doug Jones (D-AL) to name two. This week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show a conversation with one of our favorite conservatives, Peter Wehner, an outspoken critic of Donald Trump, and a voice of great magnitude, one of the most moral men we know. And that’s just where we begin. Stay-tuned for our second half-hour and our weekly political analysis, when Halli’s partner in politics, former White House correspondent Matthew Cooper joins the conversation.

In these fractious times, The Trump Era, what does the word politics mean to you? Does it conjure an image that is nasty, brutish, and depressing? In his book THE DEATH OF POLITICS: HOW TO HEAL OUR FRACTURED REPUBLIC AFTER TRUMP, the outspoken conservative and Christian critic of the Trump presidency, New York Times contributing opinion writer and White House veteran, Peter Wehner pushes back against what people have come to think about politics, and argues that while Americans have come to loathe politics, that loathing comes with disastrous results. Ethics and morality do count, impeachment always has risks — every generation has to prove itself worthy of self-government.

Not The "Perfect"Acquittal

It has been a week in politics that will be remembered for the ages. Donald John Trump was acquitted but not exonerated in his impeachment trial, the first POTUS to have one of his own party, Senator Mitt Romney, to vote for his conviction. But before that America was offered a State of the Union that had the makings of a 1960 TV variety show, replete with staged heart-wrenching moments and a Rush Limbaugh political stunt. But it was Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi who stole the show. Did we mention the Iowa Caucuses? And that’s just where we begin.

Not the “PERFECT” Acquittal, the State of the Union, the Iowa Debacle, the Coronavirus, and a lot of ethical and moral conversation brought to us by a truly moral man, Peter Wehner this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show podcast, always available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and via all your favorite apps.

If I were King Trump of the Forest

“If I were King of the Forest, not queen, not duke, not prince. My regal robes of the forest, would be satin, not cotton, not chintz,” sang the cowardly lion in The Wizard of Oz. Can you imagine impeached President Donald J. Trump singing the same words? If not, do. Because that’s what disgraced attorney Alan Dershowitz and the equally disgraced cowardly, once lions of the Senate Republicans want you not only to imagine, but accept. That contrary to the Founding Father’s wishes that decried the monarchy, America is a monarchy and Trump is your king, beholden to no one, answerable to no one for his proven corruption.

If I were King Trump

This week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Halli and her partner in politics former White House Correspondent, Matthew Cooper, access the Non-Trial of the Century, and “King “Trump, our new Royal Hiney, and his cowardly subjects who oversaw the sham trial. (“If they only had a heart, a brain, the nerve”). That story and the Iowa Caucuses, the Coronavirus, Jared’s Israeli-Palestinian Peace Plan and so much more.

“If I were King of the Forest,” a look at the cowardly once lions of the Senate, the Impeachment Trial, the Iowa Caucuses, Election 2020, Adam Schiff, Senator Lamar Alexander, Bibi Netanyahu, John Bolton, we’ve a lot to get to.

THE "PERFECT" IMPEACHMENT

The “Perfect” Impeachment the House of Representative’s case against Donald John Trump might not be, but the perfect presentation of the facts gathered thus far by Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and all the House managers in the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump has been darn near perfect. Perfection even as the Senate Republicans bury their heads in the sand, seeming to desperately want to avoid learning the facts of the case, by holding their sham trial sans witnesses. And that’s where Halli and Matt begin. Then it’s a look at Election 2020. Does Bernie Sanders stand a chance of winning the nomination? How about Michael Bloomberg? Will the New York Times endorsement of both Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar help their campaigns?

MERRY IMPEACHMENT, HAPPY HOLIDAYS

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

Merry Impeachment, Happy Holidays or is it Happy Impeachment, Merry Holidays? Whichever, history has been made December 18, 2019, when President of the United States, Donald John Trump became only the third president in United States history to be impeached. Trump lied, fought, abused his power and obstructed Congress, but he didn’t stop his impeachment, or House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, perhaps the first women to hold Trump accountable in his long and storied career with women. What’s next? Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show with Halli’s partner in politics former White House correspondent Matthew Cooper where two old friends and political pundits slice and dice all things politics and Donald Trump, too.

Happy Holidays

Merry Impeachment and Happy Holidays. Where do we go from here? Speaker Pelosi refused to send the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate until the Senate agrees to a fair trial. Trump is furious, as are his sidekicks in obstruction of Congress and abusers of power, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Miss Lindsey Graham — well, maybe not as furious as Donald Trump. And that’s where Halli and Matt begin this week’s podcast. But that is not all. There is a Democratic Party debate to talk about — how’s that race for the nomination going, Senator Amy Klobuchar, Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Mayor Pete Buttigieg? And what of the passage of the new NAFTA, USMCA? And President Trump has two holiday gifts for his MAGAs, Ho! Ho! Ho! We’ll talk about that, too.

Merry Impeachment and Happy Holidays. What comes next? Are there any noble souls left in the Republican Party? Ho! Ho! Ho!

IMPEACHMENT FULL SPEED AHEAD

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

Impeachment full speed ahead. It is no longer whether to impeach or not to impeach, no, that is no longer the question. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced Thursday that she was asking the House Judiciary Committee and chairmen of other committees to proceed with drafting articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, saying “the president leaves us no choice but to act.” Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show with Halli’s partner in politics former White House correspondent Matthew Cooper, where  two old friends slice and dice all things politics and some days, Donald Trump. The podcast is posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and also available on all your favorite apps.

impeachment full speed ahead

Speaker Pelosi has spoken. Impeachment full speed ahead, here we go! That impeachment train started months ago has gone around many bends and is now on its way to the United States Senate. Still, there are a few more stops along the way but as Pelosi said, the facts of Trump’s alleged wrongdoing involving Ukraine “are uncontested. The president abused his power for his own personal, political benefit at the expense of our national security by withholding military aid and a crucial Oval Office meeting in exchange for an announcement of an investigation into his political rival.” Pelosi added that [Trump’s] actions “seriously violated the Constitution.”

Impeachment, full speed ahead. Are there any noble minds left in the Republican Party? Impeachment, NATO, Election 2020, and for good measure The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, when Halli and Matthew Cooper tackle all things politics on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, the podcast available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, on all your favorite apps, and on your Alexa device, too.

TO IMPEACH OR NOT TO CONVICT, THE QUESTION

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

To impeach or not to convict that is the question. And are there any noble minds left in the Republican Party? Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show with Halli’s partner in politics former White House correspondent Matthew Cooper, where the two political pundits slice and dice all things politics and some days, Donald Trump. To keep the Shakespeare metaphor going: To err is human, for the president of the United States to commit bribery, extortion and obstruction of justice – treason, high crimes and misdemeanors – and get away with it in normal times would be unforgiveable. But there is nothing normal about these times. Weeks of hearings, hours of testimony, exactly where are we on the impeachment train? To find out, tune into the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and also available on all your favorite apps.

To impeach or not

All the world’s a stage, and those who testified in House Intelligence Committee and Chair Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) impeachment hearings certainly were some interesting players. From the somewhat naive Russian immigrant, turned Purple Heart recipient, U.S. Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the director of European affairs for the National Security Council to the everybody loves a kidder who has a million dollars to buy himself an Ambassadorship, and a fifty grand watch to flaunt, Ambassador Gordon Sondland, to the steely Dr. Fiona Hill, former Russia expert for the National Security Council with the polite English accent and a glance that could cut big mouth Rep. Jim Jordan in two, it was quite the play to watch in Washingto, D.C. But that’s not all, On another stage in Georgia the Democrats held yet another debate. And in the Middle East theater, the longest standing Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, was indicted on counts of bribery, fraud, and Breach of Trust. Netanyahu called it a “coup.” One wonders where he got that word. Duh.

To impeach or not to convict that is the question. And are there any noble minds left in the Republican Party? the subject of The Halli Casser-Jayne Show with Matthew Cooper, the podcast available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, on all your favorite apps, and on your Alexa device, too.

WELCOME TO THE SCHIFF SHOW

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

Welcome to The Schiff Show, and oh what a show it is! A testament to be careful what you wish for, the Republicans now have the open impeachment hearings they wanted and uh oh Donald Trump, it is totally Schiff’s Show. This week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show with Halli’s partner in politics Matthew Cooper, get out the popcorn, because Halli and Matt slice and dice The Schiff Show opening and what an opening it was. Drama, comedy, horror, political intrigue it’s all there. The podcast is posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and is available on all your favorite apps.

The Schiff Show

How did we get here? Are you tired of hearing about a quid pro quo? Does bribery work better for you? Nancy Pelosi thinks it’s a more apt description of Donald Trump’s ‘transgressions.’ The Republicans are demanding to hear from the whistleblower, but at this point, why?

In some ways watching the hearing was like reading an Agatha Christie novel. What a cast of characters! Central casting couldn’t have picked a better man to play the role of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, George Kent, with his bow tie and matching pocket square, a dapper man he is. And Ambassador Bill Taylor, currently the top US diplomat in Ukraine with the astonishing voice and courtly delivery. Compare the two diplomats to the undiplomatic Republican members of the committee: the uncouth, jacketless Rep. Jim Jordan, Rep. John Ratcliffe, who never seems to measure up to his own hype, Rep. Mike Turner who has some morality issues not dissimilar to Trump’s, and the Republican’s moll with the big mouth, Rep. Elise Stefanik. And we’re just beginning.

Tune in for an informative and fun political podcast. This week, it’s The Schiff Show on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show with Matthew Cooper this the podcast always available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, on all your favorite apps, and on your Alexa device, too.
