NOT THE “PERFECT” ACQUITTAL…

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

Not the “PERFECT” Acquittal, the State of the Union, the Iowa Debacle, the Coronavirus, and just when you thought there were no heroes among us along comes a few, Senators Mitt Romney (R-UT) and Doug Jones (D-AL) to name two. This week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show a conversation with one of our favorite conservatives, Peter Wehner, an outspoken critic of Donald Trump, and a voice of great magnitude, one of the most moral men we know. And that’s just where we begin. Stay-tuned for our second half-hour and our weekly political analysis, when Halli’s partner in politics, former White House correspondent Matthew Cooper joins the conversation.

In these fractious times, The Trump Era, what does the word politics mean to you? Does it conjure an image that is nasty, brutish, and depressing? In his book THE DEATH OF POLITICS: HOW TO HEAL OUR FRACTURED REPUBLIC AFTER TRUMP, the outspoken conservative and Christian critic of the Trump presidency, New York Times contributing opinion writer and White House veteran, Peter Wehner pushes back against what people have come to think about politics, and argues that while Americans have come to loathe politics, that loathing comes with disastrous results. Ethics and morality do count, impeachment always has risks — every generation has to prove itself worthy of self-government.

Not The "Perfect"Acquittal

It has been a week in politics that will be remembered for the ages. Donald John Trump was acquitted but not exonerated in his impeachment trial, the first POTUS to have one of his own party, Senator Mitt Romney, to vote for his conviction. But before that America was offered a State of the Union that had the makings of a 1960 TV variety show, replete with staged heart-wrenching moments and a Rush Limbaugh political stunt. But it was Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi who stole the show. Did we mention the Iowa Caucuses? And that’s just where we begin.

Not the “PERFECT” Acquittal, the State of the Union, the Iowa Debacle, the Coronavirus, and a lot of ethical and moral conversation brought to us by a truly moral man, Peter Wehner 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

Donald Trump, The State of the Union, Governor Ralph Northam refuses to resign after a racist photo of him surfaces, Senator Cory Booker announces his campaign for president, Veronica Lake makes a television appearance….what? These topics and more in our political review  with Halli and veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper, this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and on all your favorite apps.

As always, Halli and Matt slice and dice the week’s political news. This week we begin with President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address: Trump’s crooked tie, Pelosi’s clap, a quack about Jared Kushner, when a wall by any other name is still a wall, when women rule and when Trump doesn’t get it, and from there we’re on to Ralph Northam and some fair questions raised about the Democratic Party. Will Mueller present his findings to Congress this month? Can Elizabeth Warren survive a presidential run? A word or two about the Democratic Party’s newest darling Stacey Abrams and that’s just where we begin.

Kamala Harris, Donald Trump State of the Union, The Mueller Report, the latest presidential contenders — these stories and more when journalists Halli Casser-Jayne and Matthew Cooper talk politics on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and on all your favorite apps.

FUEL FOR MORNING THOUGHTS…

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

Good morning, everyone!

Today I’ll be prepping for tomorrow’s The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, The REAL Greatest Generation: Washington, Jefferson, Lafayette. So history buff that I am, I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to immerse myself in the lives of three great men for the next couple of days, as I’ve been doing all week.

Tonight is the second State of the Union for President Obama. From George Washington to President Obama this country has come a long way baby, hasn’t it? As bad as things seem these days, it really has been a remarkable journey for a country that the Brits said never could happen, and at which too many in the world continue to scoff.

Yes, these are hard times, and our leaders appear to be less heroic in comparison to the men we will discuss tomorrow. The nation as a whole is more angry than inspired. Is it a leadership problem? This question and more we will discuss tomorrow with our guests, Susan R. Stein, the Richard Gilder Senior Curator and Vice President of Museum Programs at Monticello in Charlottesville, VA, Nancy Hayward Director of Educational Outreach at Mount Vernon, and Marc Leepson, author of the book Saving Monticello and Lafayette.

Join me and my guests 3 pm ET. You can listen right here.

Have a great day!

Halli
