YOU WIN SOME AND YOU LOSE SOME

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

You win some and you lose some and that’s what happened in the off-year election, the Democrats losing the Virginia governorship but holding onto New Jersey. And then the spin began and that’s where we begin our conversation this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Podcast when Halli and her partner in politics, former White House correspondent and Newsweek and Time alum, Matthew Cooper sit down to discuss the latest political news.

You win some and you lose some. Question: Who is the better spinner, Democrats or Republicans? Is the glass half-empty or half-full? Republican Glenn Youngkin defeated former Democratic Governor McAuliff, but history shows that the party in power in Washington almost always loses Virginia off-year elections. It’s been 40 years since a Democrat one two consecutive terms in New Jersey. Governor Phil Murphy did. But on the theme of good news and bad news, the Covid-19 vaccination for children has been approved, but despite a growing vaccination rate in the U.S. and abroad, Covid-19 is on the rise in Europe. The House is expected to finally pass the Infrastructure Bill and the Build Back Better Plan. That’s good news. The bad news: They didn’t pass either prior to the election. There’s more news on Donald Trump, on voting rights legislation, climate change, the Steele Dossier, the January 6 Committee and much more.

You win some and you lose some. Will the Democrats be able to win the vote of West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin on the Build Back Better Plan? Will NYSD lose in its efforts to indict former President Trump? Jobs, jobs, jobs! There is a lot more in political news.

POLITICS, IT’S ALWAYS DARKEST BEFORE THE DAWN

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

It’s always darkest before the dawn, and that’s true in politics and that’s where we begin our conversation this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Podcast when Halli and her partner in politics, former White House correspondent and Newsweek and Time alum, Matthew Cooper sit down to discuss the latest political news.

Democrats are fighting with Democrats, Republicans are fighting with Democrats, Build Back Better, infrastructure, reconciliation — getting Joe Biden’s legislation passed has turned into a dog fight. That dynamic S & M duo, Senator Manchin of West Virginia and Senator Sinema of Arizona are torturing us to the end. Until the deal is signed, sealed and delivered President Joe Biden, the Democratic Party and the citizens of the United States remain at their mercy. Nine Republicans joined with the Democrats and voted to hold the defiant Steve Bannon in contempt when he refused to honor the subpoena to appear before the Jan 6th Committee, but who knows where that will lead. Winter starts moving in and Covid19 cases rise. Anti-Semitic tropes enter the contentious Virginia race for governor. Biden’s poll numbers reflect his frustrated base who want his legislation passed now! Listen to what Halli and Matt have to say on this week’s episode of The Halli Casser-Jayne Podcast with Matthew Cooper.  

It’s always darkest before the dawn. Infrastructure, Build Back Better, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Joe Manchin, Kyrsten Sinema, Covid-19, Donald Trump, Steve Bannon, the January 6th Commission, the Alec Baldwin shooting and gun control. It’s politics at its best; truly, we cover it all.

Round and round we go, our so-called leaders fighting the same old battles. Mask mandates or not? Vaccine mandates or not? Raise the debt ceiling or not? Immigration reform? Pass an infrastructure bill? Abolish Roe v. Wade? Arrest Former President Trump for sedition. Wasn’t Matt Gaetz supposed to have been arrested weeks ago? Halli sees America as stuck, Matt has other ideas. Do we expect enough from our leaders, or too much? It’s a spirited conversation. Tune in.

OCEAN CRUISES, LAND SHRIMP & POLITICS?

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

Ocean cruises, land shrimp, and politics? Yep! It’s a smorgasbord of politics this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when joining Halli is her partner in politics, former White House correspondent and Newsweek and Time alum, Matthew Cooper as together they slice and dice all things politics, and some days, our lawmakers, too.

Senator Joe Manchin, what’s up with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis? The fate of Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu, Kamala Harris — ay caramba! How did you like the food in Guatemala, Vice President Harris? Is infrastructure dead? How about H.R.1? Maybe Joe Biden couldn’t have asked for a better time to change the subject to the G7 summit and his soon to be meeting with Vladimir Putin, or maybe not. A group of House lawmakers is criticizing Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., for comparing the human rights records of the United States and Israel with Hamas and the Taliban — a rare public rebuke against a fellow Democrat. If she’s not an anti-Semite, she’s darn close. And under the heading of be careful what you wish for, Attorney General Merrick Garland is enraging Democrats with his fairness doctrine being applied to Donald Trump. There’s more. Tune in, land shrimp is the main course. Don’t know what land shrimp are? Scrumptious!

Ocean cruises, land shrimp & politics? Senator Joe Manchin, Kamala Harris, Guatemala, is Rep. Ilhan Omar an anti-Semite or not, the fates of the infrastructure bill and H.R.I. Joe Biden takes a trip to Europe…there’s a lot to get to.
