IT’S MOURNING AGAIN IN AMERICA

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

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.

IT'S MOURNING AGAIN IN AMERICA

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.

DOG DAYS OF RON DESANTIS

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

It’s August, and the dog days of Ron DeSantis are upon us. While the Governor of Florida mandates no mask mandates, Florida hospitals crumble under the weight of Covid-19 cases. Schools open and parents anguish, send their kids to public schools or not, a Sophie’s Choice question forced on moms and dads statewide due to the Florida governor’s malfeasance. Welcome to 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.

Yes, it’s August and the dog days of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis are upon us. Remember, what happens in Florida does not stay in Florida. Holding fast to the governor’s mandate of a no mask mandate despite the objections of health officials nationwide, Florida Covid-19 cases surge to their highest levels since the pandemic began, the Delta variant more virulent than earlier strains of the virus. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) nearly twenty-five thousand new cases were reported in one day in Florida, some 15,449 residents hospitalized with only 230 of 261 hospitals reporting their COVID patients and nearly 90 percent of the state’s intensive care unit beds filled. Over 600 Floridians died this week, the total Florida Covid-19 deaths now over 40,000, a catastrophe of one man’s bad judgment, Governor Ron DeSantis. Will he reverse course? Halli and Matt ponder that question and slice and dice the other political news of the week, and there is much. Tune in.

The dog days of Ron DeSantis, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo resigns, the bipartisan passage of Joe Biden’s Infrastructure bill, Matt Gaetz, the Afghanistan tragedy, Rand Paul as squirrel, inflation, and for comic relief a little bit on Rudy Giuliani. But that’s just where we begin.

THE BIG C’S – COVID, CUOMO, CONMAN TRUMP

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

It’s the week of the Big Cs: Covid, Cuomo and Conman Trump and that’s just where we begin this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show Podcast when joining me at my table to discuss the latest political news is my partner in politics former White House correspondent and Newsweek and Time alum, Matthew Cooper.

On this week’s episode of The Halli Casser-Jayne Show Podcast it’s the week of the Big CS: Covid, Cuomo and and Conman Trump. But that’s just where we begin. Let’s get started. It’s Halli and Matt time. Here we go!

Covid-19 is back with a vengeance and the state of Florida is ground zero for the pandemic surge. One out of every 2000 Floridians has been hospitalized with the virus, but the state’s Governor Ron DeSantis is more concerned with playing to his MAGA followers than the well-being of Florida’s residents. He has refused to mandate masks in schools despite the fact that Florida’s school age children are now a key target of the Covid-19 virus. European papers are calling DeSantis “The Pied Piper leading [Florida] off a cliff.” While he should have done it sooner President Biden finally chastised DeSantis telling Republican governors “to get out of the way” of increased state measures to curb the Covid-19 pandemic. And on another front, an investigation into Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo found that he sexually harassed multiple current and former state government employees, announced state Attorney General Letitia James. Will Cuomo resign or face impeachment? Time will tell. And what about Conman Trump’s attempted coup? There’s more news on that front. Let’s get started.

Covid-19, Conman Trump, the fate of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, this week in Tucker Carlson news, January 6 Commission, infrastructure, Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis, to mask or not to mask, that is the question and and that’s just where we begin.

SECRETS AND LIES REPUBLICAN STYLE

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

We’re only as sick as our darkest secrets and our lies takes on a whole new meaning this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show Podcast when joining me at my table to discuss the latest political news is my partner in politics former White House correspondent and Newsweek and Time alum, Matthew Cooper, and in our second half-hour Pulitzer Prize winning author of the extraordinary book WILMINGTON’S LIE, THE MURDEROUS COUP OF 1898 AND THE RISE OF WHITE SUPREMACY, David Zucchino.

Trump, Fox News hosts, the entire Republican Party have been lying to their supporters about Covid-19 and the safety and efficacy of the Covid-19 vaccine. But now the chickens, as they say, have come home to roost. Thanks to reluctant MAGAs, a virus that could be easily eradicated thanks to the vaccine is infecting the unvaccinated with a vengeance and those who took the vaccine are finding themselves at greater risk due to the recalcitrant Republicans and the new Covid variant. It’s nonsensical. Why are Republican leaders and Fox News hosts lying to their own, when they themselves are vaccinated?  Tune in to hear Halli go off on that subject and more, including the first January 6 Select Committee hearing, where more Republican secrets and lies are being uncovered.

In our second half-hour Halli introduces you to Pulitzer Prize winning, North Carolina author DAVID ZUCCHINO. A contributing writer for the New York Times, Zucchino has covered wars and civil conflicts in more than three dozen countries and is a four-time Pulitzer Prize finalist for his reporting in Iraq, Lebanon, Africa, and inner-city Philadelphia. And now he has won yet another coveted Pulitzer for his extraordinary non-fiction national bestselling book WILMINGTON’S LIE, THE MURDEROUS COUP OF 1898 AND THE RISE OF WHITE SUPREMACY, a gripping account of one of the most disturbing, though virtually unknown, political events in American history. David writes brilliantly, he is an even better talker. This is an interview you don’t want to miss.

We’re only as sick as our secrets and lies. Covid-19, the January 6 Commission, infrastructure, Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis, this week in Tucker Carlson, white supremacy and that’s just where we begin.

RUDY GIULIANI, THE HAIR DYE MADE ME DO IT!

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

Rudy Giuliani, the hair dye made me do it, and now disgraced lawyer who had his law license suspended this week is where we begin on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show podcast when joining me at my table for the full hour to discuss what was truly an unusually interesting week in politics is my partner in politics, former White House correspondent and Newsweek and Time alum, Matthew Cooper.

It’s stunning! Once the beloved Mayor of New York City, known as America’s Mayor, Rudy Giuliani served as United States Associate Attorney General and United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York. Then Giuliani hitched his wagon to former President Donald Trump, and as the eloquent Lincoln Project co-founder, Rick Wilson, once said: “Everything that Trump touches dies, hashtag #ETTD — Giuliani’s law license suspended by the New York Court citing “uncontroverted evidence that Giuliani communicated demonstrably false and misleading statements to courts, lawmakers and the public at large in his capacity as lawyer for former President Donald J. Trump and the Trump campaign.” But that’s just where we begin. Speaker Nancy Pelosi finally announced that she is creating a commission to investigate what she said are “many questions” about the events leading up to the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol and the federal response to that day. There’s so much more. Did Joe Biden’s loss to protect voting rights and shore up American democracy by the Republican’s filibuster cement the outcome of the 2022 elections? Is Kamala Harris the new Democrat the media loves to hate? Has Governor Ron DeSantis turned Florida into Floridistan? We discuss the Catholic Church, General Millie’s takedown of Rep. Matt Gaetz, Trump’s bucking the court order to turn over his tax returns to Congress, and that’s just where we begin. Tune in.

RUDY GIULIANI THE HAIR DYE MADE ME DO IT!

Rudy Giuliani, the hair dye made me do it, the Jan. 6 Commission, voter’s rights, Joe Manchin, infrastructure, Rep. Adam Schiff, oh, my, you’re going to want to tune into The Halli Casser-Jayne Show Podcast with Matthew Cooper the podcast available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, on all your favorite apps, and on your Alexa device, too.

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

Black Lives Matter, they really, really do! America took a collective sigh of relief when justice was served and former cop Derek Chauvin was found guilty of the murder of George Floyd on all counts, the culmination of a trying week in America as we all impatiently waited for the verdict. This week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show we take a look at the Chauvin trial, its conclusion, and what it means for racism in America. But that’s not all. That’s just where we being when Halli and her partner in politics, former White House correspondent and Newsweek and Time alum, Matthew Cooper, slice and dice the political news of the week.

BLACK LIVES MATTER

Yes, black lives do matter, and justice was served this week. But over at Fox “News” maybe not so much. Tucker Carlson and Greg Gutfeld are on our radar this week. So is Matt Gaetz and Covid-19, and as always, Floriduh, Floriduh, Floriduh sneaks into our conversation. Is Senator Marco Rubio vulnerable to a challenge by Florida Rep. Val Demings? And what’s the back story to the relationship between President Joe Biden and Russia’s President Vladimir Putin? Should Israel be allowed to stop Iran from developing a nuclear weapon? Netanyahu has done a helluva job so far. So why is the U.S. wanting to to stick its nose in? We heard from two former presidents this week. “The Former Guy” granted a full-length interview to Sean Hannity. Does anybody care? Former President George W. Bush gave his Republican Party quite a verbal licking. Yes, there’s even more to discuss. Please tune in.

BLACK LIVES MATTER

Black Lives Matter, they really, really do. It’s off to the pokey for Derek Chauvin. President Joe Biden, Vladimir Putin, Ukraine, Majorie Taylor Greene and America First. Yep, there’s a lot to get to and here we go.

We move on to Covid-19. Halli had her first vaccination. You’ll want to hear her experience. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis vs. California Governor Gavin Newsom. Two different styles, but some say they got their states to the same outcomes. Floridian Halli offers a different opinion. Then it’s onto the Middle East. What’s up with President Biden taking so long to phone in to our ally Prime Minister Netanyahu? Is there a more impressive Congressman than Rep. Jamie Raskin? Good riddance to Rush Limbaugh as we say RIP. And what becomes of “the former guy,” as President Biden calls you know who.

President Biden, Rush Limbaugh dead at 70, impeachment, Prime Minister Netanyahu, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, Covid-19. Tucker Carlson and Fox News.

Is that what Trump has wrought? Mr. Rogers is now the bad guy? From there we tackle the hearings for SCOTUS nominee, Amy Comey Barrett, the nationwide rise in Covid-19 cases, the Senate races and the big Democratic money hauls, Rudy Giuliani, Russia, Chris Christie’s mea culpa, Floriduh, Floriduh, Floriduh and that’s just where we begin this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show with Matthew Cooper.

“Will you shut up, man?” The words flew out of the mouth of septuagenarian Joe Biden in the first debate between the presidential hopeful, former Vice President Joe Biden, aimed at the no, he wouldn’t shut up rage-filled current occupant of the White House and Donald Trump, when Fox News anchor Chris Wallace, the debate moderator couldn’t contain the out of control POTUS.

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. Imagine a former Vice-President of the United States forced to ask the current President of the United States to “shut-up, man.” It went downhill from there, hitting a new low even for Donald Trump, when he refused to denounce white supremacy and instead told the Proud Boys to “stand back and stand by.” But that’s just where we begin. Is Amy Coney Barrett a member of a religious cult? What was Governor Ron DeSantis thinking when he re-opened the state of Florida on the day when Florida had the highest number of Covid-19 deaths in the country? And what of former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale’s arrest and hospitalization after a suicide threat? Show me the money comes to mind. Do not miss this episode!

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.

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.
