It’s mourning again in America as the Covid-19 Pandemic takes it’s toll on America and refrigeration trucks are deployed all across the country as people die unnecessarily from the virus and morgues are overwhelmed. Welcome to the effects of Republican madness and The Halli Casser-Jayne Show and that’s just where we begin this week when joining Halli at her table to discuss the latest political news is her partner in politics former White House correspondent and Newsweek and Time alum, Matthew Cooper.


We mourn. We mourn those who have lost their lives to Covid-19 unnecessarily when a simple jab in the arm might have saved their lives. We mourn the loss of Texas women’s right to choose what happens to their bodies as the Supreme Court eviscerates by a shadow vote in the dark of night Roe v. Wade. We mourn for the lives lost twenty years ago, the 2,750 people who were killed in New York, 184 at the Pentagon, and 40 in Pennsylvania when America was attacked by terrorists. But we also celebrate. There is a vaccine to thwart a ruthless virus. American women are strong and will stand up and fight for their rights, and there are a lot of men who will stand up with them. The terrorists hit us hard, but we fought back and though America has lots of demons to fight right here at home, we are still here.

It’s mourning again in America. But we will survive Covid-19, reckless, cynical governors like Ron DeSantis and Gregg Abbott, a Supreme Court that has turned itself into a lowly Night Court.

Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. On this episode of The Halli Casser-Jayne Show we begin with with the astonishing revelations found in legendary journalist Bob Woodward’s new book on Donald Trump RAGE and end with a conversation with visionary, co-founder of The Carlyle Group, philanthropist and author, David Rubenstein, his new book HOW TO LEAD, WISDOM FROM THE WORLD’S GREATEST CEOs, FOUNDERS, and GAME CHANGERS. It’s quite a journey in-between. Stay tuned.

It Ain't Over Till the Fat Lady Sings
David Rubenstein Leadership

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. What did Trump know and when did he know it? We learned from released excerpts of Bob Woodward’s new tell-all on Trump that Trump knew early on the extraordinary dangers of Covid-19 and engaged in a massive cover-up of the pandemic’s possible devastating ramifications. Trump’s former fixer, Michael Cohen, dropped his new book, DISLOYAL. Not a word out of Trump’s mouth on this one, Cohen able to do what no man has done before, silence Trump. Hey, we love Cohen for that alone. We take a look at the state of Election 2020 and handicap the race as it stands today. Covid-19, Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, and Trump’s money woes make it into the conversation, and so much more. And then it’s time for David Rubenstein. You will love our conversation about Dr. Anthony Fauci, one of the many leaders featured in his new book.

Bob Woodward, Leadership, Rudy Giuliani, Russia interference in the election, Florida, Election 2020, the Saudi Crown Prince MBS, Ivanka Trump…you don’t want to miss this episode. Join Halli and Matt this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, always available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, on your favorite app, and on your Alexa device too. Let’s talk!

I’m particularly excited about tomorrow’s The Halli Casser-Jayne Show: LIBERTY!  My guests and I are going to have a  conversation on liberty and all that it means and the many ways that it’s represented in our culture, a conversation that I’m sure you will enjoy. I have four men of letters on the show, three who have written books on symbols of  liberty and freedom in America. My first guest is Professor Edward Berenson who wrote the delightful and insightful book The Statue of Liberty. Do any of us really know how Lady Liberty came to be? Discussing the story of  The Liberty Bell  will be my guest Professor Gary B. Nash. His book  brings The Liberty Bell back to life.  You’re going to enjoy Jonathan Zimmerman. He has written a long overdue book, Small Wonder, The Little Red School House. Now what, you might ask, does the little red schoolhouse have to do with liberty. Well, we are going to explore education as a key to liberty. My fourth guest is Raymond Smock who served as the first official historian of the U.S. House of Representatives and today is director of the Robert C. Byrd Center for Legislative Studies at Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, West Virginia. Ray is an old friend because we shared a friend in common, the late Senator Robert Byrd. Among the many books that Senator Byrd wrote is his book, Losing America. It’s a devastating read if you, as I do, believe in preserving our liberty at all costs. There was no one who defended the American Constitution as Senator Byrd did. And no one who viewed with more dismay what he considered the “slow unraveling of the people’s liberties”  in the aftermath of 9/11 Join me and my guests tomorrow at 3 pm ET for LIBERTY! on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Talk Radio for Fine Minds and Freedom Lovers. Here’s a picture I took of Senator Byrd in the Senate Appropriations Room. He was in a grand mood that day and the picture reflects his joie de vivre. You can listen to the show right here or on any page on the Halli Casser-Jayne website.
