MERRY IMPEACHMENT, HAPPY HOLIDAYS

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

Merry Impeachment, Happy Holidays or is it Happy Impeachment, Merry Holidays? Whichever, history has been made December 18, 2019, when President of the United States, Donald John Trump became only the third president in United States history to be impeached. Trump lied, fought, abused his power and obstructed Congress, but he didn’t stop his impeachment, or House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, perhaps the first women to hold Trump accountable in his long and storied career with women. What’s next? Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show with Halli’s partner in politics former White House correspondent Matthew Cooper where two old friends and political pundits slice and dice all things politics and Donald Trump, too. The podcast is posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and also available on all your favorite apps.

Happy Holidays

Merry Impeachment and Happy Holidays. Where do we go from here? Speaker Pelosi refused to send the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate until the Senate agrees to a fair trial. Trump is furious, as are his sidekicks in obstruction of Congress and abusers of power, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Miss Lindsey Graham — well, maybe not as furious as Donald Trump. And that’s where Halli and Matt begin this week’s podcast. But that is not all. There is a Democratic Party debate to talk about — how’s that race for the nomination going, Senator Amy Klobuchar, Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Mayor Pete Buttigieg? And what of the passage of the new NAFTA, USMCA? And President Trump has two holiday gifts for his MAGAs, Ho! Ho! Ho! We’ll talk about that, too.

Merry Impeachment and Happy Holidays. What comes next? Are there any noble souls left in the Republican Party? Ho! Ho! Ho!

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!  

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. It is a celebration of the book, a reminder for us all that there is a vast world available to us all one bookstore, library, ebook away. 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.

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.

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!

Dan Abrams, the trial of the century, Theodore Roosevelt, Donald Trump, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, lot’s of fun and always insightful political conversation on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

ROBERT MUELLER SPEAKS, IS PELOSI LISTENING?

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

Robert Mueller speaks. Trump speaks. Joe Biden speaks. Kim Jong Un speaks through his firing of missiles. But the question of our day is: Is anyone listening to each other? And that’s just 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, and the authors of I THINK YOU’RE WRONG (BUT I’M LISTENING) Sarah Stewart Holland and Beth Silvers 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. Robert Mueller speaks and officially closes the Mueller Investigation throwing fuel on the fire for those who want Donald Trump impeached. Trump flies to Japan to speak to Prime Minister Abe, to play golf, eat and watch sumo wrestling and then wrestles with former Vice President Joe Biden, a no-no on foreign soil. And then Trump speaks some more when he touts his best buddy, the archenemy of Japan, Kim Jong Un. And if that isn’t enough to cause you to choke, maybe the fact that Trump is doubling down on his anti-climate change rhetoric will, and we’re just beginning. What a show!

Robert Mueller Speaks

In our second half-hour: As much as in any time in American history, and some would contend more than ever, American politics seems driven by conflict and anger. Friends have started to feel like strangers to one another, even like enemies. Toxic political dialogue, hate-filled rants on social media, and agenda-driven news stories have become the new norm. Where does all the anger come from? In I THINK YOU’RE WRONG (BUT I’M LISTENING), two working moms from opposite ends of the political spectrum contend that there is a better way. Sarah Stewart Holland comes from the left, Beth Silvers from the right and they invite those looking for something better than the status quo to pull up a chair and listen to the principles, insights, and practical tools they have learned hosting their fast-growing podcast PANTSUIT POLITICS.

Robert Mueller speaks,Trump speaks, this week in anti-Semitism and two very special guests Sarah Stewart Holland and Beth Silvers speak about their new book I THINK YOU’RE WRONG (BUT  I’M LISTENING)…always insightful political conversation on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

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.

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.
