IMPEACHMENT IS RISKY BUSINESS

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

Impeachment is risky business. Can the Democrats save America and themselves? The risk is not just for Trump. As we approach Election 2020 the stakes are high for all. This week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show Halli and her partner in politics former White House correspondent and political pundit Matthew Cooper take a look at the state of our politics, the special elections that officially turned the Commonwealth of Virginia blue and ousted a Republican Governor in a decidedly red state, at the impeachment inquiry and oh, so much more, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and on all your favorite apps.

RISKY BUSINESS

Impeachment is risky business. Can the Democrats save America and themselves? We are a long way from the answer to that question. But what a journey our nation is on. There’s a moral argument to the impeachment inquiry and this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show podcast, Halli and Matt ponder whether Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Adam Schiff have made a strong enough case for that. Off year elections can have consequences, particularly in Kentucky where Democrat Andy Beshear beat the Republican incumbent Governor Matt Bevin. Will the Republican’s defeat effect the re-election bid of Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell? Where are we on Election 2020? Will Democrats destroy their chance to defeat Donald Trump if they move too far to the left, as Speaker Pelosi warned them not to do? Has Elizabeth Warren peaked?

Impeachment is risky business. Can the Democrats save America and themselves? Yep, there is much to ponder and Halli and Matt ponder, ponder, ponder it all this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and on all your favorite apps. See you there!

IMPEACHMENT TRAIN RUNS THROUGH UKRAINE…

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

Doris Kearns Goodwin, I have a question for you. Are leaders born or made? Where does ambition come from? How does adversity affect the growth of leadership? Does the leader make the times or do the times make the leader? As the impeachment train wends its way down the tracks these questions and more seem uniquely relevant. And it is the reason why I invited historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, the author of LEADERSHIP IN TURBULENT TIMES to discuss Donald Trump, leadership, and so much more this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com. And, as we do every week, my partner in politics former White House corespondent, Matthew Cooper and I will slice and dice all things politics.

Doris Kearns Goodwin

In her #1 New York Times bestseller, LEADERSHIP IN TURBULENT TIMES, now out in paperback, Doris Kearns Goodwin combines her signature storytelling with essential lessons from four of our nation’s presidents—Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Lyndon B. Johnson. She writes that no common pattern describes the trajectory of leadership. Although set apart in background, abilities, and temperament, these men shared a fierce ambition and a deep-seated resilience that enabled them to surmount uncommon adversity. At their best, all four were guided by a sense of moral purpose. And then there was Donald Trump. Are leadership and moral purpose a thing of the past? My good friend and Pulitzer Prize winning author and baseball aficionado, Doris Kearns Goodwin joins me on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. Do tune in!

Doris Kearns Goodwin

And as always, my partner in politics, Matthew Cooper and I slice and dice all things politics, this week our focus on impeachment, and a whole lot more.

Doris Kearns Goodwin, LEADERSHIP IN TURBULENT TIMES, Donald Trump, impeachment, political news, Lindsey Graham, Ukraine, quid pro quo…we tackle it all this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show always available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and on all your favorite apps.

BARRELING TOWARD IMPEACHMENT

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

Are we barreling toward impeachment? It’s a whole new political world this week when we learned that the President of the United States admitted to using the powers of his office to target Joe Biden, his potential rival in Election 2020 and Biden’s son, by pressuring the Ukrainian government to fabricate a scandal. Top that with the revelation that a whistleblower had filed a complaint against the President Donald Trump. And then top that with the fact that the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, a seemingly reluctant warrior has announced there will be an official Impeachment Inquiry into Donald Trump. Joining me at my table on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show is my partner in politics, former White House Correspondent Matthew Cooper for an in-depth conversation.

Barreling Toward Impeachment

Roll at the barrel, yes we are on the impeachment roll and where all of this lands nobody quite knows. We are barreling toward impeachment. Here’s some of what we know: We do know that according to the whistleblower, the White House tried to “lock down” records of the Trump Ukraine call, the transcripts released to the public incriminating, to say the least. It appears that the President of the United States Trump used the power of his office to solicit foreign interference in Election 2020 and that Trump’s new fixer and private attorney, Rudy Giuliani, met an adviser to the Ukraine president in August and that the Acting DNI Chief Joseph Maguire, a Trump appointee, appeared to play games with the release of the whistleblower’s statement.

As the barrel rolls, we are in a whole new territory. The players include President Trump, an unidentified whistleblower, the Acting DNI Chief Maguire, Attorney General Bill Barr, Rudy Giuliani, Speaker Pelosi, Rep. Adam Schiff, Vice President Mike Pence and we’re just beginning. Strap yourselves in and roll out the barrel, we’re in for a barrel of fun on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show podcast with Matthew Cooper!  

POLITICAL POTPOURRI: BIBI, IMPEACHMENT, NSA, IRAN

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.

political

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.

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!

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!

MERRY OLDE TRUMP

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

Merry olde Trump takes a merry olde trip to England on the 75th Anniversary of D-Day and manages to insult everyone before Air Force One’s tires even hit the ground. But it was just another day in Trumpville, which is where we begin this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when 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.

Merry Olde Trump

And what a week it’s been. Merry olde Trump and the Trump Clan, including Trump Jr., Eric, Ivanka, and the ‘other’ daughter Tiffany, joined their father for a state dinner with Queen Elizabeth. But that’s just where we start. Former Vice President Joe Biden remains the Democratic front runner, but after rolling out his Climate Change plan, he’s hammered over climate change plagiarism accusations. We got a really close look at Jared Kushner in an interview he did for Axios in which he looked like a deer in the headlights, and Halli says, also looked “eunicky.”  Are Dems addicted to losing? Oh, and the ‘I’ word! There’s more. What a show!

Merry Olde Trump takes a trip to merry olde England. Russia’s manipulation of the 2016 election on Twitter was much more than originally thought. ,Harry Reid says impeach but Speaker Pelosi holds her ground…always insightful political conversation on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

IMPEACH THE MOTHER F*CKER, ALREADY!

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

Impeach the Mother F*cker already! That’s what many Democrats are saying. Nancy Pelosi doesn’t seem to be listening and that’s just where we begin this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show as Trump continues to stonewall the House investigation, while Trump’s number one nemesis and possible opponent in the 2020 run for President, Joe Biden, continues to surge in the polls…these stories and more when Halli and Halli’s partner in politics veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper, and author of THEY WERE HER PROPERTY Stephanie Jones-Rogers join Halli on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

Impeach

In our first half-hour, Halli and Matt slice and dice the week’s political news. Trump Inc. continues to defy subpoenas and in doing so, appears to want to push Democrats to impeachment. There are cracks in Trump’s wall, small but there. Republican Representative Justin Amash dared to cross Trump and and called for Trump’s impeachment. It got dirtier: Rep. Jerry Nadler accused Trump of “witness intimidation” and we’re just beginning. What a show!

impeach

In our second half-hour, drawing on the recorded recollections of formerly enslaved individuals, as well as on financial and legal documents, author Stephanie Jones-Rogers opens up a new conversation in the exhaustive study of slave-holding in the United States, myth-busting at its best. In THEY WERE HER PROPERTY, WHITE WOMEN AS SLAVE OWNERS IN THE AMERICAN SOUTH, Ms. Jones-Rogers presents an eye-opening, highly-detailed and vivid account that challenges assumptions about the role of white women in the buying, selling, managing, and hiring of enslaved people, prompting a rethinking of women’s history and the history of slavery. You will be astonished!

Impeach the Mother F*ucker. What is Nancy Pelosi up to? Does Jerry Nadler have what it takes to go nose to nose with Donald Trump and this week in anti-Semitism and a very special guest, Stephanie Jones-Rogers talks her provocative new book THEY WERE HER PROPERTY…always insightful political conversation on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.
