Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. I am Halli Casser-Jayne.  On this episode of The Halli Casser-Jayne Show: Is Trump losing it? And we don’t mean only the election — Covid-19, mail-in voting, Joe Biden’s continued surge in the polls, Tucker Carlson, Ghislaine Maxwell and we’re just beginning in our weekly take on all things politics.

Ghislaine Maxwell

As we do every week, Halli and her partner in politics, veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper take a deep dive into the current political landscape in their weekly snap, crackle and pop conversation. And what a week it has been. We buried an American icon, Congressman John Lewis, and lost a little more of what has been great about America. Trump continued to be Trump, threatening the possibility of postponing the November 3 election. And Covid-19 continued to ravage the nation, taking the life of an anti-masker and Trump acolyte Herman Cain. The country continued to struggle with the idea of opening up its schools. And throw in a little Trump race-baiting and oh what a show we have for you!

Covid-19, Election 2020, Congress, Joe Biden, Donald Trump, Florida, Kamala Harris, Susan Rice, Michael Flynn…these stories and more this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, always available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, on your favorite app, and on your Alexa device too.

Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. I am Halli Casser-Jayne.  Covid-19, Federal troops in American cities some are calling Trump’s Militia, Joe Biden ahead by 6 in Florida, and that’s just the half of it. Because besides our weekly take on all things politics, in our second half-hour we’re taking a trip to Alaska with the fun, spunky, astute author of OF BEARS AND BALLOTS: AN ALASKAN ADVENTURE IN SMALL-TOWN POLITICS, Heather Lende.

As we do every week, Halli and her partner in politics, veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper take a deep dive into the current political landscape in their weekly snap, crackle and pop political conversation. And what a week it has been. Covid-19 is ravaging the United States and Donald Trump is back on the tube with his daily campaign events disguised as Covid-19 updates — not much information there. Florida has become the epicenter of the pandemic, 120 plus people dying everyday while Governor DeSantis tells everyone how wonderful things are. Federal troops are being deployed to American cities against the wishes of those states leaders, and Democrats are “looking into it” and that’s just where they begin. 

COVID-19

In our second half-hour, if you don’t know New York Times bestselling author Heather Lende, you’re in for a treat. Smart, funny, and a force to be reckoned with the girl from New York who moved to Alaska in her early twenties, and took the state by storm is back with a new book OF BEARS AND BALLOTS: AN ALASKAN ADVENTURE IN SMALL-TOWN POLITICS that tells the story of her misadventure into local politics. There are some lessons for us all in this story. Sarah Palin and Senator Lisa Murkowski each make an appearance. Tune in.

David Ignatius

The bestselling fiction writer is out with a new suspense thriller, THE PALADIN. A veteran corespondent and prize-winning Washington Post columnist with deep ties to the intelligence community, Ignatius has been covering the CIA for nearly four decades, delving deeply into the crevices few have gone before. Most recently and notably, Mr. Ignatius was instrumental in exposing the magnitude of Russian election interference in 2016, breaking the story of Michael Flynn’s clandestine communication with the Russian Ambassador to the US.

David Ignatius & Mike Pompeo's Animal House

And then it’s Halli and Matt and their weekly take on the political scene. To date there are nearly 95,000 dead American souls, 1.58 million confirmed coronavirus cases in the U.S., more than any other country per capita. All 50 states are at least partially reopened, even though as of yesterday, at least 18 of them had recorded a clear upward trend of average new daily cases over the prior week. Some hospitals are already overwhelmed by the new cases. Thirty-eight million Americans are unemployed. Another 2.4 million Americans filed for unemployment last week –– a 2.5 million increase from the prior week. And in case you didn’t hear it, Trump wants to cut-off unemployment insurance for all those unemployed Americans. And that’s just where we begin. Tune in

David Ignatius and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s animal house parties, Flynngate, Obamagate, Russiagate — there’s a lot to discuss.

IF I WERE KING TRUMP OF THE FOREST

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

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

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

The “perfect” impeachment. The “perfect” phone call. The perfectly insane presidency of Donald John Trump. This week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Halli and her partner in politics former White House Correspondent, Matthew Cooper,  take a perfectly in-depth look at the story of the week, The “Perfect” Impeachment trial of Donald John Trump, the podcast available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, on all your favorite apps, and on your Alexa device, too.

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? Then it is onto our segment “While You Weren’t Looking” where we bring you up-to-date on all the stories you might have missed this week.

The “Perfect” Impeachment, Election 2020 many of the stories you might have missed, it’s always interesting when political pundits Halli and Matt “perfectly” argue their points of view on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, on all your favorite apps, and on your Alexa device, too.

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.

Apollo 11

If you think you know everything about Apollo 11, you don’t. Up first this week, a conversation with Rod Pyle whose new book FIRST ON THE MOON, THE APOLLO 11 50TH ANNIVERSARY EXPERIENCE is truly an experience.

POLITICS AIN’T SOYBEANS CHRISTIAN NATIONALISM

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

Constitutional crisis

Politics ain’t soy beans mid-west farmers are learning as Trump ups the ante in his trade war with China, Jr. to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee, abortion, this week in anti-Semitism, Joe Biden continues to surge in the polls, Florida…Florida…Florida and a very special guest, Andrew L. Seidel talks about his provocative new book THE FOUNDING MYTH in which the author asks if Christian Nationalists are un-American…these stories and more when Halli and Halli’s partner in politics veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper, and Mr. Seidel 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. As Trump Inc. Defies supoenas, is impeachment back on the table? Seriously, what’s up with Lindsey Graham? The lobby most feared in Washington D.C., the NRA is knee deep in grifters, activist Alyssa Milano calls for a sex-strike and the latest round of anti-abortion legislation nd we’re just beginning, here we go.

In our second half-hour: The Halli Casser-Jayne Show is all for challenging myths.This week’s guest is the author of THE FOUNDING MYTH, WHY CHRISTIAN NATIONALISM IS UN-AMERICAN, Andrew L. Seidel whose provocative new book seeks to bust the myth indelibly woven into the founding of the Republic that is the United States of America: That our nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles. Here’s why: In today’s contentious political climate, understanding religion’s role in American government is more important than ever. Christian nationalists do indeed assert that our nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles, and advocate an agenda based on this popular historical claim. But is this belief true? Do the Ten Commandments, “In God We Trust,” George Washington’s “prayer” at Valley Forge, and other historical “evidence” prove that America was founded on Judeo-Christian principles? Are the Ten Commandments the basis for American law? Andrew Seidel, a constitutional attorney, dives into the debate about religion’s role in America’s founding…and he argues that our founding fathers did not, as is previously thought, look to the Bible when they drafted the pillar of the United States – the Declaration of Independence.

Politics ain’t soybeans Mid-west farmers have learned as Trump ups the ante in his trade war with China, Jr. to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee, abortion, this week in anti-Semitism, Joe Biden continues to surge in the polls, Florida…Florida…Florida and a very special guest, Andrew L. Seidel talks his provocative new book THE FOUNDING MYTH and Matthew Cooper and Halli have fun bringing you insightful political conversation on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

GEORGE CONWAY, BETO O’ROURKE, DEVIN NUNES COW AND WIT

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

George Conway

George Conway, Beto O’Rourke, Devin Nunes and a Cow, and Wit with the author of WIT’S END, WHAT WIT IS, HOW IT WORKS, AND WHY WE NEED IT, James Geary and we’re just beginning. Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show and our weekly political review with Halli and veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and on all your favorite apps.

As always, Halli and Matt slice and dice the week’s political news. There’s a lot of news and a lot of questions needing answers. Beto, Bernie, Harris, Warren can any of the announced Democratic Party candidates for POTUS beat the man waiting in the wings, Joe Biden? What are we to make of Kellyanne Conway’s husband George Conway’s battle royale with Donald Trump? Why is Devin Nunes having a cow? We love palace intrigue on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show.

George Conway

In our second half-hour because we all need a laugh, from New York Times best-selling author James Geary comes WIT’S END: WHAT WIT IS, HOW IT WORKS, AND WHY WE NEED IT, a whimsical book that explores every facet of wittiness—from its role in innovation, to why puns demonstrate the essence of creativity. According to Geary, wit is much more than just having a knack for snappy comebacks. It is the quick, instinctive intelligence that allows us to think, say, or do the right thing at the right time in the right place. Whether we’re talking verbal repartee, jokes, jive, through neuroscience, psychology, folk tales, spirituality, visual art, and literary history, Geary demonstrates that wit and wisdom are really the same thing.

George Conway’s war with Trump. Beto O’Rourke enters the presidential race. Devin Nunes has a cow and WIT in the age of Donald Trump…these stories and more when journalists Halli Casser-Jayne and Matthew Cooper talk politics and Halli talks with author James Geary on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday, March 20, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, and on all your favorite apps.
