Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show Podcast and to the Banana Republicans of America. On this week’s episode Halli and her partner in politics, veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper ponder Donald Trump’s refusal to concede his defeat by President-elect Joe Biden, and all his little Republican lemmings, too. But there’s more.

BANANA REPUBLICANS OF AMERICA

On November 3, 2020, America spoke and spoke loudly and clearly, much to Donald Trump’s dismay and denial. Former Vice-President Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. won the American presidency with over fifty percent of the vote, beating out the incumbent president, a rare event in American history. But Donald Trump is refusing to acknowledge his defeat, acting more like Gone With the Wind’s Aunt Pittypat, hysterical, hold up in the White House like an 19th century woman having the vapors, refusing a peaceful transition of power, a first in American history. Has the United States of America officially become a Banana Republican? And then there is the Covid-19 Pandemic that is ravaging the U.S.. It seems unfathomable that over 250,000 Americans are dead, and not a word from President Donald ‘Aunt Pittypat’ Trump, indulging in his own personal pity party.  

The Banana Republicans of America, the Covid19 Pandemic, was Senator Lindsey Graham trying to fix the election for Trump? The fate of the U.S. Senate remains up in the air. Will the Republican Party come to their senses? Will Trump? And that’s just where we begin this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, always available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, on all your favorite apps, and on your Alexa device, too. Let’s talk politics!

Goodbye Dementia, Hello Joe Biden

Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. On this episode of The Halli Casser-Jayne Show we begin with the revelation, much to the dismay of Republicans, that no, Joe Biden does not suffer from dementia and end with a conversation with bestselling author and critically acclaimed journalist, Ellis Cose, who wades into the debate to reveal how despite Facebook and Twitter, our Constitutional right to free speech has been co-opted by the wealthy and politically corrupt, the subject of his new book THE SHORT LIFE & CURIOUS DEATH OF FREE SPEECH IN AMERICA. It’s quite a journey in-between. Stay tuned.

ELLIS COSE

As we do every week, Halli and her partner in politics, veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper, take a deep dive into the current political landscape in their weekly snap, crackle and pop conversation. And what a week it has been. As Election 2020 dances  into full-swing, both Donald Trump and Joe Biden participated in town halls. Halli has much to say on the subject beginning with “Will the real Donald Trump please stand-up?” What does Matt have to say on the subject? From there it’s on to Covid-19 and the 200,000 dead American souls. Sigh. It didn’t have to be this way, as Vice President Pence’s former lead coronavirus task force aide, Republican Olivia Troye reveals when she slams Trump and endorses Biden in her new video. Another woman comes forth and accuses Trump of sexual assault. Why does no one seem to care? And then it’s time for Halli’s interview with Ellis Cose. The widely respected Cose offers an eye-opening wholly original examination of the state of free speech in America today. It’s not boring subject, promise. Nor is it a pretty picture. Never one to pull punches, Cose doesn’t.  

Bob Woodward, Election2020, Joe Biden and dementia, Donald Trump, stimulus package, Florida, Israel, UAE, Bahrain, Bibi Netanyahu, vaccines, the CDC, Attorney General Bill Barr, Lindsey Graham…you don’t want to miss this episode.

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! 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. 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.
