LIMBO IS A PLACE IN POLITICAL HELL

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

Limbo is a place in political hell and that’s just where we begin 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.

Build Back Better, infrastructure, reconciliation, waiting…waiting…waiting. Waiting is torture, and waiting we are to see just how that dynamic S & M duo, Senator Manchin of West Virginia and Senator Sinema of Arizona will actually vote. Waiting to see what the Jan. 6th Committee does when Republicans defy their subpoenas. Waiting to see if Covid19 is really on the retreat. Waiting, waiting, waiting…and that’s not a good place for the Democrats to be. Will getting their agenda passed, far less than what they initially promised, fix the frustration? And as their agenda remains in limbo, what of the Republicans who never missed an opportunity to grab the headlines and push their message while the Democrats clutch pearls. No, limbo is not a good place for Democrats to be.  Tune in. We’re always lively and honest on The Halli Casser-Jayne Podcast with Matthew Cooper.  

Infrastructure, abortion rights, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Covid-19, the Supreme Court, Donald Trump, the January 6th Committee. It’s politics at its best. Truly, we cover it all.

THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY OF MISHIGAS

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

Bring out the bagels and lox. Settle in. We’ve got a lot to get to. Oy, that Democratic Party and all its mishigas. What a week of drama they brought us all, including that S & M duo and all their torturing: Senators Joe Manchin and Kysteren Sinema. There will be a vote and there won’t — hostage taking at its best, and that’s just where we  begin this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Podcast 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.

Definition of the Yiddish word mishigas: craziness; silliness; tomfoolery; nonsense. We surely did get a lot of that from the Democratic Party this week and a lesson in the art of war as the two factions of the party, the liberals and the moderates went at each other, more like a clown fight than two gladiators after each other in a coliseum. Caught in the middle, as usual, are We the People. We ought to worry when the Democrats control the House, the Senate and the Executive Branch of government and they can’t bring home the much-needed infrastructure package and the social programs most Americans have been waiting for for far too long. Is all lost? Probably not. But have the Democrats given the Republicans who know how to turn fodder into gold bullions on a platter their ammunition? Tune in. We’re always lively and honest on The Halli Casser-Jayne Podcast with Matthew Cooper.  

Infrastructure, abortion rights, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Covid-19, the Supreme Court, Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, the January 6th Commission. It’s politics at its best. Truly, we cover it all.

A VERY TRUMPY 4TH

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

It’s a very Trumpy 4th of July and Trump is where we begin this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show podcast, when joining me at my table for the full hour to discuss the Trump, Inc. indictment, the grumpy Supreme Court decisions, grr, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and so much more is my partner in politics, former White House correspondent and Newsweek and Time alum, Matthew Cooper.

It’s a very Trumpy 4th of July and Trump is where we begin this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show podcast, when joining me at my table for the full hour to discuss the Trump, Inc. indictment, the grumpy Supreme Court decisions, grr, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and so much more is my partner in politics, former White House correspondent and Newsweek and Time alum, Matthew Cooper.

Trumpy is back in the news. Did he ever go away? The Trump Organization and Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg pleaded not guilty Thursday to crimes related to what prosecutors called a “sweeping and audacious” scheme to avoid taxes on compensation for the CFO and other executives. The company is owned by former President Donald Trump, who was not charged. A 15-count indictment says the Trump Organization and Weisselberg devised a scheme to compensate Weisselberg and other company executives in an “off the books” manner, in which they “received substantial portions of their income through indirect and disguised means.” A prosecutor in court said that the “the former CEO” of the Trump Organization — ex-President Trump — “signed, himself, many of the illegal compensation checks” to executives. Then Trumpy’s Supreme Court took another major stab at voter’s rights and protected dark money’s infiltration of our politics. Halli goes off on House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Matt catches us up and “This Week on Tucker Carlson” but that’s just where we begin. Tune in

A VERY TRUMPY 4TH

It’s a very Trumpy 4th: Trump Inc. is indicted; Joe Manchin might have to rethink the filibuster; Pelosi taps Republican Rep. Liz Cheney for her committee investigating the Capitol riot; is Vice President Kamala Harris in trouble? Anti-Semitism is up; Bill Cosby is out of the slammer — 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.

CHARACTER COUNTS ELECTION 2020 RECAP

Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show Podcast. On this week’s episode Halli and her partner in politics, veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper discuss Joe Biden’s victory over one-term President Donald Trump, ponder the lessons learned, and gaze through their looking glasses to discern what comes next in the fight for democracy. 

CHARACTER COUNTS: ELECTION2020 RECAP

On November 3, 2020, America spoke and spoke loudly and clearly, much to Donald Trump’s dismay and denial. Trump’s character was on the ballot and America’s, too. It was not a close decision. Former Vice-President Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. won with over fifty percent of the vote, beating out the incumbent president, a rare thing in American history. More history was made when Senator Kamala Harris became America’s first bi-racial, female vice-president. And that’s just where we begin. So many questions. So little time. Will Nancy Pelosi remain Madame Speaker after the Democrats lost so many House seats? Will AOC and the Squad make life difficult for President Biden, pushing for their left-wing agenda? The Senate is still up for grabs. We talk about the two Georgia Senate races that could make or break Biden’s presidency before it even gets started. And then there is the Covid-19 pandemic that is ravaging the U.S. as we speak.  

A recap of Election2020, the fate of the U.S. Senate, the end of Donald J. Trump’s hold on America. Who from the Republican Party takes control? Florida, Covid-19, those pesky things called polls. Is Senator Susan Collins the most  powerful Republican? And that’s just where we begin on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, always available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, on all your favorite apps, and on your Alexa device, too. Let’s talk politics!

Covid-19 cases continue to grow, 158,000 Americans dead and Trump tells us “It is what it is.” Election 2020 is almost here and a discussion on Biden’s pick for his vice-presdiential nominee is where we begin.

NRA

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. Trump gave an interview to journalist Jonathan Swan of Axios, a conversation no one will soon forget. Dr. Birx, Trump’s longtime Twirl Girl dared to disagree publicly with Trump this week and he hit back hard. No deal between the Democrats and Republicans on relief talks, and Speaker Pelosi is sticking to her hard line. Republicans are caught helping Kanye West in his bid for the presidency and just when you thought things couldn’t get any lower, evangelical Leader Jerry Falwell, Jr. got caught with his pants down, literally. What a show we have for you!

Covid-19, Election 2020, Congress, Joe Biden, Donald Trump, Florida, Kamala Harris, Susan Rice, the end of the NRA?, the Axios interview. It’s August and things are hot, hot, hot.

David Ignatius

The bestselling fiction writer is out with a new suspense thriller, THE PALADIN. A veteran corespondent and prize-winning Washington Post columnist with deep ties to the intelligence community, Ignatius has been covering the CIA for nearly four decades, delving deeply into the crevices few have gone before.

To date there are nearly 95,000 dead American souls, 1.58 million confirmed coronavirus cases in the U.S., more than any other country per capita. All 50 states are at least partially reopened, even though as of yesterday, at least 18 of them had recorded a clear upward trend of average new daily cases over the prior week. Some hospitals are already overwhelmed by the new cases. Thirty-eight million Americans are unemployed. Another 2.4 million Americans filed for unemployment last week –– a 2.5 million increase from the prior week. And in case you didn’t hear it, Trump wants to cut-off unemployment insurance for all those unemployed Americans. And that’s just where we begin. Tune in

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.

IF I WERE KING TRUMP OF THE FOREST

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

If I were King Trump of the Forest

“If I were King of the Forest, not queen, not duke, not prince. My regal robes of the forest, would be satin, not cotton, not chintz,” sang the cowardly lion in The Wizard of Oz. Can you imagine impeached President Donald J. Trump singing the same words? If not, do. Because that’s what disgraced attorney Alan Dershowitz and the equally disgraced cowardly, once lions of the Senate Republicans want you not only to imagine, but accept. That contrary to the Founding Father’s wishes that decried the monarchy, America is a monarchy and Trump is your king, beholden to no one, answerable to no one for his proven corruption.

If I were King Trump

This week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Halli and her partner in politics former White House Correspondent, Matthew Cooper, access the Non-Trial of the Century, and “King “Trump, our new Royal Hiney, and his cowardly subjects who oversaw the sham trial. (“If they only had a heart, a brain, the nerve”). That story and the Iowa Caucuses, the Coronavirus, Jared’s Israeli-Palestinian Peace Plan and so much more.

“If I were King of the Forest,” a look at the cowardly once lions of the Senate, the Impeachment Trial, the Iowa Caucuses, Election 2020, Adam Schiff, Senator Lamar Alexander, Bibi Netanyahu, John Bolton, we’ve a lot to get to.
