IMPEACHMENT FULL SPEED AHEAD

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

Impeachment full speed ahead. It is no longer whether to impeach or not to impeach, no, that is no longer the question. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced Thursday that she was asking the House Judiciary Committee and chairmen of other committees to proceed with drafting articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, saying “the president leaves us no choice but to act.” Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show with Halli’s partner in politics former White House correspondent Matthew Cooper, where  two old friends slice and dice all things politics and some days, Donald Trump. The podcast is posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and also available on all your favorite apps.

impeachment full speed ahead

Speaker Pelosi has spoken. Impeachment full speed ahead, here we go! That impeachment train started months ago has gone around many bends and is now on its way to the United States Senate. Still, there are a few more stops along the way but as Pelosi said, the facts of Trump’s alleged wrongdoing involving Ukraine “are uncontested. The president abused his power for his own personal, political benefit at the expense of our national security by withholding military aid and a crucial Oval Office meeting in exchange for an announcement of an investigation into his political rival.” Pelosi added that [Trump’s] actions “seriously violated the Constitution.”

Impeachment, full speed ahead. Are there any noble minds left in the Republican Party? Impeachment, NATO, Election 2020, and for good measure The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, 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.

TO IMPEACH OR NOT TO CONVICT, THE QUESTION

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

To impeach or not to convict that is the question. And are there any noble minds left in the Republican Party? Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show with Halli’s partner in politics former White House correspondent Matthew Cooper, where the two political pundits slice and dice all things politics and some days, Donald Trump. To keep the Shakespeare metaphor going: To err is human, for the president of the United States to commit bribery, extortion and obstruction of justice – treason, high crimes and misdemeanors – and get away with it in normal times would be unforgiveable. But there is nothing normal about these times. Weeks of hearings, hours of testimony, exactly where are we on the impeachment train? To find out, tune into the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and also available on all your favorite apps.

To impeach or not

All the world’s a stage, and those who testified in House Intelligence Committee and Chair Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) impeachment hearings certainly were some interesting players. From the somewhat naive Russian immigrant, turned Purple Heart recipient, U.S. Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the director of European affairs for the National Security Council to the everybody loves a kidder who has a million dollars to buy himself an Ambassadorship, and a fifty grand watch to flaunt, Ambassador Gordon Sondland, to the steely Dr. Fiona Hill, former Russia expert for the National Security Council with the polite English accent and a glance that could cut big mouth Rep. Jim Jordan in two, it was quite the play to watch in Washingto, D.C. But that’s not all, On another stage in Georgia the Democrats held yet another debate. And in the Middle East theater, the longest standing Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, was indicted on counts of bribery, fraud, and Breach of Trust. Netanyahu called it a “coup.” One wonders where he got that word. Duh.

WELCOME TO THE SCHIFF SHOW

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

Welcome to The Schiff Show, and oh what a show it is! A testament to be careful what you wish for, the Republicans now have the open impeachment hearings they wanted and uh oh Donald Trump, it is totally Schiff’s Show. This week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show with Halli’s partner in politics Matthew Cooper, get out the popcorn, because Halli and Matt slice and dice The Schiff Show opening and what an opening it was. Drama, comedy, horror, political intrigue it’s all there. The podcast is posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and is available on all your favorite apps.

The Schiff Show

How did we get here? Are you tired of hearing about a quid pro quo? Does bribery work better for you? Nancy Pelosi thinks it’s a more apt description of Donald Trump’s ‘transgressions.’ The Republicans are demanding to hear from the whistleblower, but at this point, why?

In some ways watching the hearing was like reading an Agatha Christie novel. What a cast of characters! Central casting couldn’t have picked a better man to play the role of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, George Kent, with his bow tie and matching pocket square, a dapper man he is. And Ambassador Bill Taylor, currently the top US diplomat in Ukraine with the astonishing voice and courtly delivery. Compare the two diplomats to the undiplomatic Republican members of the committee: the uncouth, jacketless Rep. Jim Jordan, Rep. John Ratcliffe, who never seems to measure up to his own hype, Rep. Mike Turner who has some morality issues not dissimilar to Trump’s, and the Republican’s moll with the big mouth, Rep. Elise Stefanik. And we’re just beginning.

Tune in for an informative and fun political podcast. This week, it’s The Schiff Show on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show with Matthew Cooper this the podcast always available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, on all your favorite apps, and on your Alexa device, too.

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 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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
