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.

ROARING INTO 2020: ELECTION 2020, ANTI-SEMITISM, IMPEACHMENT

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

Anti-Semitism, Election 2020, Iraq, Iran, Bibi Netanyahu, North Korea, oh yeah,  impeachment and Donald Trump are just some of the topics on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show this week when Halli and her partner in politics, former White House correspondent Matthew Cooper roar into 2020, OK, Halli not so much Matt on this their first broadcast of the new decade, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and on all your favorite apps.

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! Tune in 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.

IMPEACHMENT TRAIN ROLLS ALONG

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

Impeachment train rolls along. Yep, the train is rollin’ down the impeachment tracks, the Democrats conducting an effective campaign against President Donald Trump, while Trump appears to flounder in response more than anytime in his presidency. It’s a whole new political world this week. Will Trump be tossed from office, don the orange jumpsuit, take up residency in the old pokey? Joining me at my table on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show is my partner in politics, former White House Correspondent Matthew Cooper for our weekly commentary on the state of American politics and in our second half-hour, how’s this: A look inside the business of punishment with the author of AMERICAN PRISON, Shane Bauer. Perhaps Donald Trump ought to tune into this show!

impeachment

Impeachment train rolls along, and a fast moving train it is. As the train winds around the track, there are many stops along the way and quite a cast of characters: Rudy Giuliani, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Attorney General Barr and the big man himself, Donald Trump, already off the rails only a couple of weeks in. My partner in politics, former White House correspondent and I slice and dice it all for you. Find your seat.

Impeachment

In our second half hour, I talk with the author of AMERICAN PRISON, A REPORTER’S UNDERCOVER JOURNEY INTO THE BUSINESS OF PUNISHMENT. In 2009, journalist Shane Bauer and two other young Americans went hiking in Iraqi Kurdistan and unknowingly crossed into Iran. They were captured, and Bauer was held for over two grueling years in Iran’s Evin prison. In 2014, Shane Bauer went undercover as an entry-level guard at a private prison in Winnfield, Louisiana. His story is simply jaw-dropping. Don’t miss this interview!

As the impeachment train rolls along, travels down the track, we are in a whole new territory. The players include President Trump, an unidentified whistle-blower, Attorney General Bill Barr, Rudy Giuliani, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Speaker Pelosi, Rep. Adam Schiff and we’re just beginning. Strap yourselves in and enjoy the ride, and our look inside America’s prison system on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show podcast with Matthew Cooper and New York Times bestselling author of one of the 10 best books of 2018, one of Barack Obama’s favorites, AMERICAN PRISON.

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.

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.
