MICHAEL WOLFF SEIGE: TRUMP UNDER FIRE

Michael Wolff. Probably the only person as controversial as Donald J. Trump these days made huge waves with his #1 bestselling, bombshell book, FIRE AND FURY, in which he gave his readers a rare and raucous glimpse into the early days of the tumultuous Trump Presidency. Now Wolff is back with his new book SIEGE: TRUMP UNDER FIRE, a book that sizzles with the story of the second year of the Trump presidency, a presidency that is literally under fire from almost every side. Michael Wolff joins Halli for an in-depth conversation this week and that’s just where we begin. You don’t want to miss Halli’s this week’s installment of Halli’s conversation with her partner in politics veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

We begin this week with a conversation with Michael Wolff. Probably the only person as controversial as Donald J. Trump these days is journalist Michael Wolff. Michael Wolff made huge waves with his #1 bestselling, bombshell book, FIRE AND FURY, in which he gave his readers a rare and raucous glimpse into the early days of the tumultuous Trump Presidency. Now Wolff is back with his new book SIEGE: TRUMP UNDER FIRE, a book that sizzles with the story of the second year of the Trump presidency, a presidency that is literally under fire from almost every side. Trump has burned through staff like a candle, wax. He’s no longer surrounded by experienced advisers, and Wolff paints us a picture of an even more impulsive and volatile Donald J. Trump than ever. Is that even possible? Tune in.

MICHAEL WOLFF SEIGE: TRUMP UNDER FIRE

From there Halli and Matt move on to review the week in politics: Are the Democrats moving ever closer to impeachment? It’s Florida, Florida, Florida! Say ta ta to Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Will there be a war with Iran? The indomitable OAC is making waves once again. There’s more. What a show!

POLITICS AIN’T SOYBEANS CHRISTIAN NATIONALISM

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.

WIN SOME, LOSE SOME – ELECTION 2018 REVIEW

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

Win Some, Lose Some Election 2018

Win some, lose some, change is a comin’ to Washington, D.C. and Donald Trump’s life. A day after the Midterm Election 2018, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, Halli and her partner in politics journalist Matthew Cooper take a look at the state of the nation after the historical vote that put the Democratic Party back in control of the House of Representatives but allowed Republicans to maintain control of the Senate.

As we do every week, newsman Matthew Cooper joins Halli for our politics segment, PODCAST AMERICA, in which Matt and Halli slice and dice all things politics. And what a week it has been. Democratic stars Andrew Gillum in Florida, Stacey Abrams in Georgia, and Beto O’Rourke in Texas were spotlight races because they seemed impossible, but Gillum and O’Rourke didn’t quite pull it off. The Blue Wave really was a wave, but not quite as big a wave as pollsters thought. The Democrats took back the House after 8 years and the Republicans maintained control of the Senate. It appears health care has been saved, Democrats get subpoena power, the Robert Mueller investigation is protected, a ton of Democratic women and minorities will take their place in Congress and in State Houses in both blue and red states. Yes, Democrats permeated the red wall, and what has been called Trumpism might be on the run. Yep, it is true, you win some and you lose some.

Win some, lose some, change is coming to Washington, D.C. and Donald Trump’s life. Join Halli and Matthew Cooper on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

Washington Post political blogger and author Greg Sargent and Washingtonian Magazine’s Matthew Cooper talk all things politics in the Age of Trump as we approach the midterm elections on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

As we do every week, newsman Matthew Cooper joins me for our politics segment, PODCAST AMERICA, in which Matt and I slice and dice all things politics. Matthew Cooper is known for his in-depth reporting and analysis from Washington. Mr Cooper has worked for some of America’s most prestigious magazines including Time, Newsweek, The New Republic, National Journal and U.S. News & World Report. He now serves as a contributing editor to Washingtonian magazine. For the record, Cooper also earned national attention during the CIA leak case when he was held in contempt of court and threatened with imprisonment for his refusal to name his sources and to testify before the Grand Jury regarding the Valerie Plame CIA leak investigation, a case that went all the way to the Supreme Court. He has appeared on 60 Minutes,Meet the Press, Hardball, The O’Reilly Factor and This Week with George Stephanopoulos. He has covered Donald Trump extensively, his hard-hitting and insightful profiles of “The Donald” always well-worth the read.

Washington Post

In AN UNCIVIL WAR: TAKING BACK OUR DEMOCRACY IN AN AGE OF TRUMPIAN DISINFORMATION AND THUNDERDOME POLITICS, journalist Greg Sargent who writes the popular “Plum Line” blog at The Washington Post doesn’t fool around. He says that American democracy is facing a crisis as fraught as we’ve seen in decades and Donald Trump’s presidency has raised the specter of authoritarian rule. He notes that extreme polarization and the scorched-earth war between the parties drags on with no end in sight. And makes the case that at the heart of this dangerous moment in American history is a paradox: It took a figure as uniquely menacing as Donald Trump to rivet the nation’s attention on the fragility of our democracy. Yet the causes of our dysfunction are long-running and predate Trump. It is these ‘causes’ that helped facilitate the rise of Trump, and, distressingly, will outlast his presidency. In an account that includes numerous interviews with political operatives and strategists in both parties, political scientists and historians, Sargent argues why we cannot shy away from big arguments over our democratic future and considers what must be done to save it.

SINGER-SONGWRITER of KEY LARGO, BERTIE HIGGINS

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

bertie higgins key largo album cover


“We had it all, just like Bogie and Bacall,” is the lyric that touched hearts and imaginations and allowed us to sail away to Key Largo. The songwriter? Bertie Higgins, whose Key Largo blew a hole in the U.S. charts when it reached number one in the nation, and went on to become an international hit. For Higgins, it was only the beginning. Wednesday, March 16, 3 pm ET Bertie Higgins joins Halli at her table on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. Come sail away.

Like his great, great grandfather, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, the German poet who penned “Faust”, Bertie Higgins is a storyteller. Bertie, who once supported himself as a sponge diver, began his career in show business at the age of twelve as a ventriloquist. But music was in his heart and he became drummer for the Tommy Roe band, The Roemans. He toured the world alongside the Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, Tom Jones, Roy Orbison, Manfred Mann, Peter and Gordon, The Dave Clark Five and many more. Tiring of the rigors of the road and yearning to make his own musical statement, Bertie left The Roemans, put down his drumsticks, picked up a guitar and began crafting music and lyrics. The rest, as they say is history.

Trop rock, yacht rock, romance, Key Largo, sail away with Halli and her guest, singer/songwriter, musician Bertie Higgins for an hour of romance and reminiscing on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday, March 16, 3 pm ET. For more about the show visit Halli Casser-Jayne.com.

A VIEW FROM MY WINDOW

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

When I’m not in my role as a talk radio host, or writing, or kayaking, or running on the beach, or gardening, or whatever (there’s a lot I love to do), I am a photographer. My book, Still Life, images of Antietam is my photographic essay on the Battle of Antietam, and the first serious book of photographs taken of the Antietam Battlefield since Alexander Gardner’s 1866 book Sketchbook of the Civil War. It’s available on Amazon.com for those of you who might be interested in obtaining a copy. As my Facebook friends know, from time to time I  include a photograph in my daily posts. “Like” my page, and see what I see in the View from My Window. I’m lucky to live on the Indian River lagoon in central Florida where the landscape is ever-changing, moment to moment. Here’s an image photographed today. I hope you like it.

A LITTLE OF MY WORLD

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

I thought you might like to see the view from my window. Here’s my Maxfield Parrish world. Living on the water is like watching frames of a movie. The scenery is ever-changing, second by second. The joke around here (Central Florida) is if you don’t like the weather, blink your eyes. It’ll change that fast. Mother Nature is a fickle friend. Enjoy the view.
