Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show and our weekly political review with Halli and veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper 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. There’s a lot of news and a lot of questions. Seventy-percent of Americans believe in climate change, but not Donald Trump.Why? Donald Trump’s poll numbers are tanking in Florida. Why? Can the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, Pete Buttigieg, become the next president of the United States? Why is Ann Coulter crying the blues?

In our second half-hour, Halli speaks with the author of GRAND CANYON FOR SALE, PUBLIC LANDS VERSUS PRIVATE INTERESTS IN THE ERA OF CLIMATE CHANGE, Stephen Nash. February 26, 2019 marked the 100th Anniversary of the establishment of Grand Canyon National Park by President Woodrow Wilson and an eager-and-willing U.S. Congress. Never has the future of the Grand Canyon National Park been in such peril thanks to decades of twisted incentives, rotten politics, and feckless regulators endangering some 28 percent of the national soil. Topped off with climate change and President Trump, “we’re on the precipice, both politically and biologically,” Nash asserts, and that’s just part of the problem.

Paul Manafort sentencing, the Democratic Party takes a trip to Milwaukee, Trump and Boeing, Trump’s Emergency Declaration, the Roger Stone saga…these stories and more when journalists Halli Casser-Jayne and Matthew Cooper talk politics and Halli talks Climate Change and our National Park land on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, and on all your favorite apps.

FINALLY, ANN COULTER IS RIGHT

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

Oh that ridiculous Ann Coulter.

Like her handlers, she is as dumb as they come. She’s attractive, if you like the overly-made up type, women with overly-bleached blonde hair, overly-toned bodies and overly-big mouths. But short on intellect and proper-reasoning she is, both having never been Ann Coulter or her likes strong suit.

So, imagine my astonishment when I read a blog-post by the potty-mouthed, provocative Coulter that was RIGHT — oh my —  titled “Romney Was Not the Problem.” Oh my gosh, Ann Coulter got something right? It’s a Thanksgiving kind of day.

Of course, like most of Coulter’s titles, book titles or blog post headlines, there’s not much worth reading after the often-salacious headlines. Cogent, Ann Coulter is not. What she always manages to do however, is to take a morsel of truth and wrap it, like a pig in a blanket in camouflage with delicious dough and mustard but not facts. Take a bite into an Ann Coulter PIAB and what do you get? A mere hot dog, and never of the Hebrew National Variety that answers to a higher authority.

So let me help the hot dog Coulter out here: “No Romney Was Not the Problem,” the reason that President Obama was re-elected so definitely, trouncing the Republicans into political oblivion at least for four more years. You are! Yes you, Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, or Glenn Beck, the names if not the faces are interchangeable  You the carnival barkers of the Republican Party, the Political Republican Party Barnum and Bailey Circus, the freaks in the tent who we all couldn’t help taking a peek at, but who at the end of the day were nothing more than freaks who belong in the circus, not the GOP.

It is, you, Ann Coulter and your ilk who brought down the Republican Party and my guess is you might even know it. You can smell the blood and are writing to get ahead of the story before it becomes the Republican meme and the party turns on you and its freaks, something that it should have done a long time ago. Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, like Glenn Beck, your days are numbered, and that of the idiot folks who sicced you on the Conservative brand.

So Ann, go back to the freezer. Your party is over. OK, we visited your fun house. It’s time to move on to the Big Tent where the real talent of the GOP lives. A freak show, after all, is no longer a freak show when everyone in the tent is the same.

 

 

 

RIGHT IS WRONG

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

On their deafening defeat by the Democratic Party and President Obama, the Republican Party is doing what any smart loser does: assessing where they went wrong. The problem for the current Republican Party, however, is not WHERE they went wrong.  It is that they ARE wrong.

They are a “country” of old white men who live in the Twentieth Century. They are throwbacks to a time that no longer exists, and should not. If you’ll imagine a hunt-country tableaux with a the Lord of the Manor seated in his wingtip chair, his Fox News-type bride dressed circa 1950 wearing just a tad more Pan make-up than necessary painted on so thick meant to camouflage vacuity, and she with her guiding hand on her husband’s shoulders, well, you almost have the picture. Sitting at their feet, wearing their adorable-not Lily Pulitzer Sunday best, the requisite children and their proper brace of AKC hunt country dogs. Sigh.

The current brand of Republicanism is on the right about everything, and wrong about everything. The party no longer even represents the best of conservatism, and surely there is something best about conservatism. But who remembers? Conservatism has been raped by its own.

Conservatism, like their women has been held hostage – so much for Ayn Rand – by a misguided need to protect their white male fiefdoms, their women as complicit as their men in their attempt to strip away a woman’s right to make her own choices in body, mind spirit and economics.

Ruled by their elitist sense of self, that they somehow know what’s best for us all, they act as the Queen Bees to what they conceive of as a nation of drones, on this earth to only serve their needs. Is Rush LIMPaugh a Queen Bee in disguise? Surely Ann Coulter thinks that she is. Oh how she and Limbaugh do drone on in mindless buzz.

The middle class is drowning and these Apoidea know it, yet they insist that their tax cuts remain in force. They protect the big oil companies and their absurd subsidies. They want to abolish Medicare as we know it and hang the youth of our nation out to dry. Theirs is a Ponzi scheme – and we see what their trickledown scheme has done for the fiscal health of this nation.

They are self-serving. What else could be behind their selfishness, their need to keep the money at the top of the food chain while the drones, the middle class, are annihilated by Republican narcissism?

They despise the color brown, except on their rifles, and deny the relevance of people of color as anything more than annoyances who they would like to see slither across the sand colored earth as they make their way back to wherever it is from whence they came.

They are the party of exclusive, not inclusive.

Thus, as I began: The problem for the current Republican Party is not WHERE they went wrong. It is that they ARE wrong. About that, I am RIGHT!
