CITIZEN’S UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FAIL

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

Citizen’s United We Stand, Divided We Fail. On this week’s episode of The Halli Casser-Jayne Show it’s a beautiful day in Joe Biden’s neighborhood, the United States now officially under new management, gone is ‘you know who,’ and we begin our four year stroll alongside President Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. and Vice-President Kamala Harris.

Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show Podcast, it’s nice to have you here. As we do every week, newsman Matthew Cooper joins Halli for their weekly political review in which Matt and Halli slice and dice all things politics. And what a week it has been. Despite the scourge of the Covid19 pandemic, Washington, D.C. in shock after Trump’s followers, at his incitement, stormed the Capitol, a city under military might, former Vice-President Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States. And we have a new Vice-President, too, her name, Kamala Harris.The future for America is promising, right? Well, maybe not. After the other scourge that was the presidency of Donald Trump was officially brought to a close, the Republicans appear none the less chastened. Candidate Biden promised to unite the country, Republicans, despite the fact that their leader was impeached a second time for his role in the assault on the American Capitol and run out of town in shame, appear to want to continue to sow division, seemingly willing to do anything to stop President Biden’s efforts at unification, enacting his agenda, taking control of the Covid19 Pandemic, bringing the country back to fiscal order. And what of the second trial of the former president? There’s a lot to dissect. Here we go.

Covid19, impeachment, President Biden, Vice-President Harris, what will be the fate of seditionists Senator Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz,  Trump’s militia storming the Capitol, the future of the filibuster, which Republican will be the first to put country before party — all on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show Podcast always available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, on all your favorite apps, and on your Alexa device, too. Let’s talk politics!

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!

CHARACTER COUNTS ELECTION 2020 RECAP

Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show Podcast. On this week’s episode Halli and her partner in politics, veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper discuss Joe Biden’s victory over one-term President Donald Trump, ponder the lessons learned, and gaze through their looking glasses to discern what comes next in the fight for democracy. 

CHARACTER COUNTS: ELECTION2020 RECAP

On November 3, 2020, America spoke and spoke loudly and clearly, much to Donald Trump’s dismay and denial. Trump’s character was on the ballot and America’s, too. It was not a close decision. Former Vice-President Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. won with over fifty percent of the vote, beating out the incumbent president, a rare thing in American history. More history was made when Senator Kamala Harris became America’s first bi-racial, female vice-president. And that’s just where we begin. So many questions. So little time. Will Nancy Pelosi remain Madame Speaker after the Democrats lost so many House seats? Will AOC and the Squad make life difficult for President Biden, pushing for their left-wing agenda? The Senate is still up for grabs. We talk about the two Georgia Senate races that could make or break Biden’s presidency before it even gets started. And then there is the Covid-19 pandemic that is ravaging the U.S. as we speak.  

A recap of Election2020, the fate of the U.S. Senate, the end of Donald J. Trump’s hold on America. Who from the Republican Party takes control? Florida, Covid-19, those pesky things called polls. Is Senator Susan Collins the most  powerful Republican? And that’s just where we begin 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!

TRUMP, SCOTUS, GINGRICH, COVID19: TROUBLING TIMES

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

Supreme Court of the United States speaks and, no, Donald Trump, you are not above the law. But when will the American people see your tax returns? Before Donald Trump there was Newt Gingrich who tied American politics to a rock and threw it down a well. And while the Republican Party burns, the fever of Covid-19 ravages large swaths of the country. Should our nation’s children return to school? And we’re just beginning. Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when joining Halli at her table is Julian Zelizer, author of the critically acclaimed BURNING DOWN THE HOUSE the story of the fall of Speaker Gingrich and the rise of the new Republican Party.

But we begin with Halli and Matt’s weekly take on all things politics when Halli and Matt slice and dice the news, and Donald Trump, too. Covid-19 is surging all across America and Donald Trump acts like coronavirus who, ignoring reality as he likes to do when reality is getting in the way of his reelection. Like the Covid-19 news, Trump’s polls are devastating. So was the Supreme Court’s decision to reject Trump’s assertion that he enjoys absolute immunity while in office, allowing a New York prosecutor to pursue a subpoena of the president’s private and business financial records. And to top it all off, Trump’s niece Mary Trump is out with a withering biography of her infamous uncle. Oh, we do have fun this week. Tune in.

TROUBLING TIMES

In our second half-hour Halli sits down with author and historian Julian E. Zelizer to talk about his important new book, BURNING DOWN THE HOUSE, NEWT GINGRICH, THE FALL OF A SPEAKER, AND THE RISE OF THE NEW REPUBLICAN PARTY. If ever there was a time in America’s biography to understand how we got from there to here, it is now. In his book, Zelizer pinpoints the moment when our country was set on a path toward an era of bitterly partisan and ruthless politics, an era that was ignited by GOP upstart Newt Gingrich and his allies, Gingrich, perhaps more than any other politician, introducing the rhetoric and tactics that have shaped Congress and the Republican Party for the last three decades.

SCOTUS decision, Covid-19, Election 2020, Newt Gingrich, history, Mary Trump’s biography of Donald Trump, politics, Attorney General Barr, Florida, Florida, Florida — all this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, always available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and on whichever is your favorite app and on your Alexa device too.

KILLING PARTISAN DIVIDE – INSIDE STEVE BANNON

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

When not even a pandemic that has killed almost 50,000 Americans can heal the partisan divide, America is in big trouble. And that’s where we begin this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when Halli and her partner in politics, Matthew Cooper, slice and dice all things politics in their weekly take on the political scene. Then it is on to a truly eye-opening conversation, an exploration into the mind and heart of Trump creator, Steve Bannon, with the author of the new book WAR FOR ETERNITY: INSIDE STEVE BANNON’S FAR-RIGHT CIRCLE OF GLOBAL POWER BROKERS, Benjamin R. Teitelbaum. The podcast is posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and is available on all your favorite apps.

KILLING PARTISAN DIVIDE - STEVE BANNON

Seriously, when not even a pandemic that has killed almost 50,000 Americans can heal the partisan divide, America has some soul-searching to do. But there might be a glimmer of hope. Nearly 75% of all Americans agree that they disagree with Donald Trump and his Republican governors who think “there are more important things than life,” and it’s time for America to go back to work. And though you might not have noticed it, there is an election going on. Trump has his daily campaign rallies disguised as Covid-19 briefings, but Democratic Party presumed nominee Joe Biden might be benefiting from those rallies, much to Trump’s chagrin. Biden is ahead in many key state polls. There’s a lot more to discuss, the newly-formed coalition government in Israel is on the list, too. Tune in.

STEVE BANNON

In our second half-hour Halli introduces you to the new book, WAR FOR ETERNITY: INSIDE STEVE BANNON’S FAR-RIGHT CIRCLE OF GLOBAL POWER BROKERS and the book’s author Benjamin R. Teitelbaum. Kirkus called the book “breathless and provocative, with thick coats of conspiracy theory, of the doctrines that drive Steve Bannon.” If you’re looking for the answer to some of Trump’s most crazy, WAR FOR ETERNITY is the book for you. As if there isn’t enough to scare us in this time of the Covid-19 Pandemic, the contents of Teitelbaum’s book will. From a series of interviews with his subject, Steve Bannon, Teitelbaum takes us deep into the foundations and guiding documents of the ideology that guides Bannon, the author and champion of Trump’s policies, including the border wall, the Muslim ban, his anti-immigrant nationalism.

The partisan divide, the radical Republican Party, Covid-19, has Dr. Birx turned into Trump’s Twirl Girl? Floriduh, Floriduh, Floriduh,  Election 2020, and a deep dive into the mind of Steve Bannon with author Benjamin R. Teitelbaum…all on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show the podcast always available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, on all your favorite apps, and on your Alexa device, too.

CAN WE VENT-I-LATOR?

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

Welcome to the Halli Casser-Jayne Show with Matthew Cooper, the podcast available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and on all your favorite apps.

Can we Vent-i-late?

Can we vent-i-late? Here we go: As thousands of Americans die from the Coronavirus the pandemic that the President of the United States, Donald Trump, only recently called a “Democratic hoax,” because there are not enough ventilators to serve the needy, and our first responders, our nurses, are forced to wear garbage bags, their only line of defense against the virus, because (gasp for air) paranoid Trump is too busy accusing the media of making up the extent of the virus in order to hurt the economy, in order to keep him from being re-elected president, rather than enacting the Defense Production Act, just one action that would ramp up production of much-needed ventilators to keep patients alive, and Republicans actually suggest that our senior citizens should sacrifice their lives for the sake of the American economy (and Trump’s re-election), sigh, where is that ventilator? And we’re just beginning.

Meanwhile after much delay the Senate passed a two trillion dollar Coronavirus economic stimulus package that seemed obsolete before it was even signed, after it was announced that jobless claims soared to a record 3 million. And about that presidential election? What about it? It seemed to have fallen off America’s radar. Joe Biden where art thou, DNC?

These are truly times that try men (and women’s) souls. Halli and Matt dissect it all for you on the Halli Casser-Jayne Show with Matthew Cooper, the podcast available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, on all your favorite apps, and on your Alexa device, too. “See” you there.

NOT THE WORST OF TIMES, NOT THE BEST OF TIMES…

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

It is not the worst of times, it is not the best of times, but these are scary times and that’s where we begin this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when Halli and Halli’s partner in politics, former White House correspondent, Matthew Cooper, slice and dice all things politics, and Donald Trump, too. And in our second half-hour a conversation with philanthropis, co-founder of The Carlyle Group, and the author of THE AMERICAN STORY: CONVERSATIONS WITH MASTER HISTORIANS, David M. Rubenstein, the podcast available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and on all your favorite apps.

NOT THE WORST OF TIMES

America is under siege, the enemy a stealth virus that attacks the old and the young, the rich and the poor, a non-dicerning enemy. In our first half-hour, Matt and Halli take a look at how the administration is handling the pandemic. It’s a war being fought on two fronts: the effort to protect the health and safety of our citizens and the efforts to save the American economy. And by the way, while the nation fights for our lives and our well-being there is an election in progress. Former Vice President Joe Biden soundly defeated Senator Bernie Sanders in three primaries. What now? Does Sanders trot off gracefully into the sunset or go on fighting fin the hope of a better day?

DAVID M. RUBENSTEIN

In our second half-hour we introduce you to an interesting figure of our times. His name is David M. Rubenstein and David is the co-founder and co-executive Chairman of The Carlyle Group, one of the world’s most successful investment firms. He is also the Chairman of the Boards of Trustees of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Smithsonian Institution, and the Council on Foreign Relations, and an original signer of The Giving Pledge. In his spare time he is the host of The David Rubenstein Show on Bloomberg TV and PBS. His book THE AMERICAN STORY should be on everyone’s bookshelves. And while we all hunker down to defeat the Coronavirus, this is a book that we recommend you read.

The Coronavirus Pandemic, an assessment of Trump in one of America’s scariest hours, the 2020 stock market plunge, Election 2020, Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, and David M. Rubenstein author of THE AMERICAN STORY and we’re just beginning this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show podcast, always available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and via all your favorite apps.

DONALD TRUMP’S BAD MEDICINE

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

Wash your hands! The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared that the Coronavirus outbreak is officially a pandemic. With no known cure, the best medicine for Americans and the world right now would be a Consoler-in-Chief. Instead who we have is the unempathetic POTUS Donald Trump, whose sad attempt to calm us all in a rare Oval Office address sent the stock market into further schisms and that’s where we begin this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when Halli and her partner in politics, former White House correspondent Matthew Cooper slice and dice all things politics, and Donald Trump, too, the podcast available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and on all your favorite apps.

DONALD TRUMP'S BAD MEDICINE

Here we are in the midst of an official poandemic and we should all feel better because Donald Trump and his New York slumlord son-in-law, Jared Kushner, are in charge. But Trump, looking nervous as hell as he delivered bupkes in real remedies and a lot of blame in his Oval Office address might have made matters worse. Who will save the day? Former Vice President and presidential hopeful, Joe Biden? Is Senator Bernie Sanders quest for the White House over? Is the stock market plunge temporary or permanent? Oh, and just in case you missed it, Hollywood’s Number One couple Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson test positive for the virus and onetime media mogul Harvey Weinstein ,got 23 years in the pokey for all his dastardledly deeds.

The Coronavirus Pandemic, the failing presidency of Donald J. Trump, the 2020 stock market plunge, Election 2020, Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, and we’re just beginning this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show podcast, always available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and via all your favorite apps.
