CAN WE VENT-I-LATOR?

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

Welcome to the Halli Casser-Jayne Show with Matthew Cooper, the podcast available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and on all your favorite apps.

Can we Vent-i-late?

Can we vent-i-late? Here we go: As thousands of Americans die from the Coronavirus the pandemic that the President of the United States, Donald Trump, only recently called a “Democratic hoax,” because there are not enough ventilators to serve the needy, and our first responders, our nurses, are forced to wear garbage bags, their only line of defense against the virus, because (gasp for air) paranoid Trump is too busy accusing the media of making up the extent of the virus in order to hurt the economy, in order to keep him from being re-elected president, rather than enacting the Defense Production Act, just one action that would ramp up production of much-needed ventilators to keep patients alive, and Republicans actually suggest that our senior citizens should sacrifice their lives for the sake of the American economy (and Trump’s re-election), sigh, where is that ventilator? And we’re just beginning.

Meanwhile after much delay the Senate passed a two trillion dollar Coronavirus economic stimulus package that seemed obsolete before it was even signed, after it was announced that jobless claims soared to a record 3 million. And about that presidential election? What about it? It seemed to have fallen off America’s radar. Joe Biden where art thou, DNC?

These are truly times that try men (and women’s) souls. Halli and Matt dissect it all for you on 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. “See” you there.

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

It is not the worst of times, it is not the best of times, but these are scary times and that’s where we begin this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when Halli and Halli’s partner in politics, former White House correspondent, Matthew Cooper, slice and dice all things politics, and Donald Trump, too.

NOT THE WORST OF TIMES

America is under siege, the enemy a stealth virus that attacks the old and the young, the rich and the poor, a non-dicerning enemy. In our first half-hour, Matt and Halli take a look at how the administration is handling the pandemic. It’s a war being fought on two fronts: the effort to protect the health and safety of our citizens and the efforts to save the American economy. And by the way, while the nation fights for our lives and our well-being there is an election in progress. Former Vice President Joe Biden soundly defeated Senator Bernie Sanders in three primaries. What now? Does Sanders trot off gracefully into the sunset or go on fighting fin the hope of a better day?

DAVID M. RUBENSTEIN

In our second half-hour we introduce you to an interesting figure of our times. His name is David M. Rubenstein and David is the co-founder and co-executive Chairman of The Carlyle Group, one of the world’s most successful investment firms. He is also the Chairman of the Boards of Trustees of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Smithsonian Institution, and the Council on Foreign Relations, and an original signer of The Giving Pledge. In his spare time he is the host of The David Rubenstein Show on Bloomberg TV and PBS. His book THE AMERICAN STORY should be on everyone’s bookshelves. And while we all hunker down to defeat the Coronavirus, this is a book that we recommend you read.

The Coronavirus Pandemic, an assessment of Trump in one of America’s scariest hours, the 2020 stock market plunge, Election 2020, Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, and David M. Rubenstein author of THE AMERICAN STORY and we’re just beginning this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show podcast, always available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and via all your favorite apps.

DONALD TRUMP’S BAD MEDICINE

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

Wash your hands! The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared that the Coronavirus outbreak is officially a pandemic. With no known cure, the best medicine for Americans and the world right now would be a Consoler-in-Chief. Instead who we have is the unempathetic POTUS Donald Trump, whose sad attempt to calm us all in a rare Oval Office address sent the stock market into further schisms and that’s where we begin this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when Halli and her partner in politics, former White House correspondent Matthew Cooper slice and dice all things politics, and Donald Trump, too, the podcast available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and on all your favorite apps.

DONALD TRUMP'S BAD MEDICINE

Here we are in the midst of an official poandemic and we should all feel better because Donald Trump and his New York slumlord son-in-law, Jared Kushner, are in charge. But Trump, looking nervous as hell as he delivered bupkes in real remedies and a lot of blame in his Oval Office address might have made matters worse. Who will save the day? Former Vice President and presidential hopeful, Joe Biden? Is Senator Bernie Sanders quest for the White House over? Is the stock market plunge temporary or permanent? Oh, and just in case you missed it, Hollywood’s Number One couple Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson test positive for the virus and onetime media mogul Harvey Weinstein ,got 23 years in the pokey for all his dastardledly deeds.

The Coronavirus Pandemic, the failing presidency of Donald J. Trump, the 2020 stock market plunge, Election 2020, Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, and we’re just beginning this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show podcast, always available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and via all your favorite apps.

PRESIDENT POMPEO STRIKES IRAN

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

President Pompeo strikes Iran and that’s just the beginning of only the second week of the new decade of 2020. But don’t forget the impeachment of one Donald Trump or Election 2020, just some of the topics we explore on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show this week when Halli and her partner in politics, former White House correspondent Matthew Cooper tackle it all on the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and on all your favorite apps. 

President Pompeo, also known as the Secretary of State, is said to be the mastermind behind the ‘elimination’ of Qasem Soleimani the Iranian Major General in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and, from 1998 until his death commander of its Quds Force, a division primarily responsible for extraterritorial military and clandestine operations. A bad man to be sure, but was it wise for Donald Trump to take him out now? That question explored and remember impeachment? That’s on the table too, as is Speaker Pelosi, who many Democrats are demanding turnover the Articles of Impeachment to the Republican controlled Senate, now. Where are we in Election 2020? Is Bernie Sanders making gains? We travel overseas to discuss the Royal’s crisis. Stay-tuned, it’s sure to be a wild ride.

Iran, Iraq, impeachment, Election 2020, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Hallmark movie lives, those stories and more when you tune in when Halli and Matthew Cooper tackle it all 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.

ANTI-SEMITISM

A new year, a new decade — we’ve moved well into a new century, and yet that old and ugly little thing called anti-Semitism has reared its ugly head once again. Election 2020, which has been the talk of the town since Donald Trump was elected is still eleven months away, but that is this year. Can November come too soon? A U.S. diplomatic installation has come under siege, the fortress that is the American Embassy in Bagdad. Where do we go from here? Iran? And Speaker Pelosi has yet to send the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate, Trump remains furious, as are his sidekicks in obstruction of Congress and abusers of power, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Miss Lindsey Graham. Senator Susan Collins has a few things to say about that. Should anyone believe a thing Susan Collins says?

Anti-Semitism, Election 2020, the Middle East, Iraq, Iran, Bibi Netanyahu, the impeachment of Donald Trump. Roar!

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

Political potpourri this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show: Netanyahu, Impeachment, the NSA, Iran, Kavanaugh and Election2020 are some of the hot topics we explore when joining me at my table is my partner in politics, former White House Correspondent Matthew Cooper and John Gans, the former chief Pentagon speechwriter and current director of communications and research at the University of Pennsylvania’s global policy institute to talk about his timely new book WHITE HOUSE WARRIORS, HOW THE NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL TRANSFORMED THE AMERICAN WAY OF WAR.

It’s been another whacko week in politics. There was an election held in Israel, and President Trump’s favorite Prime Minister Netanyahu, the longest serving Prime Minister in Israel’s history, may have lost the election. Can Bibi pull yet one more rabbit out of the hat and form a coalition? Iran is said to be behind the bombings of the Saudi oil fields that sent oil futures zooming. Now what? Former Trump Campaign director, Cory Lewandowski, stonewalled the Democrats in a hearing, but who gets the last laugh there? There’s more, tune in, uh boy!

political

Today, President Trump named his fourth National Security Adviser, Robert O’Brien. So what perfect timing that I’ve got a conversation for you on one of the most consequential yet least understood institutions in the U. S. government. In WHITE HOUSE WARRIORS, HOW THE NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL TRANSFORMED THE AMERICAN WAY OF WAR, John Gans, the former chief Pentagon speechwriter and current director of communications and research at Perry World House, the University of Pennsylvania’s global policy institute, for the first time ever offers an inside look at the people and the power of National Security Council, the NSC, and how its role has grown since its creation more than 70 years ago at the start of the Cold War.  

Bibi Netanyahu, NSA, Iran, impeachment, Justice Kavanaugh, Corey Lewandowski, Nancy Pelosi vs. Jerry Nadler, Election2020, Biden vs. Warren, we’ve got it all covered this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show always available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and wherever you listen to your podcasts.

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.

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.

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.

IS TRUMP A RACIST? RALPH PETERS, MATT COOPER

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

Is Donald Trump a racist? Is the country as fractured as it was in the lead up to the Civil War? These questions and more are discussed when joining Halli at her table on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show are New York Times bestselling author, longtime Fox News political analyst, Ralph Peters, and veteran White House corespondent and Halli’s partner in all things politics, Matthew Cooper.

Is Donald Trump a racist?

If you haven’t read one of New York Times bestselling author, retired U.S. army officer, political talking head Ralph Peters Civil War novels, you don’t know what you are missing. There is a reason Ralph Peters has been called “the finest Civil War novelist writing today.” Now the author of  33 books that include award winning bestselling fiction, military strategy, memoir and over 1,000 published articles and essays, an expert on Russia, is out with a gripping new Civil War novel, DARKNESS AT CHANCELLORSVILLE, his latest historical fiction nominally the story of the last great Confederate triumph in the Civil War, more importantly, a story of the social and economic challenges that were not resolved by the wartime deaths of 750,000 Americans, challenges that continue to face our nation today.

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?
