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.

REPUBLICAN’S COME-TO-JESUS MOMENT?

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

Have the Republicans had a come-to-Jesus-moment on the Covid-19 vaccine? That question sets us up for a rollicking conversation on Covid-19, possible mask mandates, the state of the Republican Party and oh, so much more this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show podcast, when joining me at my table for the full hour to discuss the latest political news is my partner in politics former White House correspondent and Newsweek and Time alum, Matthew Cooper.

After a year of poo-pooing the efficacy and need of the Covid-19 vaccine, with Fox News hosts actually saying Covid-19 was a hoax and the vaccine unnecessary, Fox hosts are touting the vaccine’s effectiveness, including Sean Hannity. Right-wing Trump fanatics like Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La) are getting jabbed publicly, just as the extremely infectious Covid-19 Delta variant takes hold, and  infections rates skyrocket throughout the country, but mostly in Red States. Is this a real Republican come-to-Jesus-moment? Do the Republicans know something we don’t? Or are they finally coming to the realization that their political stance was actually killing their own constituents? But there’s more. There’s Kevin McCarthy’s determination to de-legitimize the January 6 Commission, the indictment of Trump’s friend and crony Tom Barrack, questions about the infrastructure deal President Biden needs and what happens if he doesn’t get it and we’re just getting started.

REPUBLICANS COME-TO-JESUS-MOMENT

The Republican Party’s come-to-Jesus-moment, the January 6 Commission, Trump’s bevy of dirty, rotten scoundrels, anti-Semitism, infrastructure, Covid-19, Cuba, and whatever happened to the Matt Gaetz July indictment — and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. We pack a lot into the hour.

TRUMP LOVES HITLER, WAT?

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

Trump loves Hitler, wat? Trump is back and as they say with a vengeance. Did he ever go away? And that’s just 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 latest revelation that Trump actually said “Hitler did a lot of good” and so much more is my partner in politics, former White House correspondent and Newsweek and Time alum, Matthew Cooper.

According to excerpts of an upcoming book from Wall Street Journal reporter Michael Bender, then-President Donald Trump allegedly praised Adolf Hitler during a discussion with his White House chief of staff John Kelly in 2018 while on a trip to Paris to commemorate the armistice after World War I. “Well, Hitler did a lot of good things,” Trump reportedly told Kelly, who was explaining to the 45th President who the allies and adversaries were in both World Wars, according to Bender. Bender also writes in the book that Trump was “undeterred” and persisted in his defense of the German dictator by claiming the country made economic gains under Hitler’s leadership. You can’t make this stuff up folks.

Trump loves Hitler, wat?

But that’s not all. Covid-19 infections are rising throughout the country. We look at the alarming increase in cases and wonder why so many aren’t alarmed. Should vaccines be mandated to save us all? Joe Manchin remains on our radar as he continues to be in control of the American government. Should we be losing patience with President Joe Biden’s failure to get Manchin inline with his party? According to a leaked video of Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX), obstruction is the playbook for Republicans. Is that why Roy or anyone was sent to Congress — to obstruct?” Majorie Taylor Greene invokes the Holocaust again. Why hasn’t she been expelled from Congress? And is Elvis Presley Jewish?  

Trump loves Hitler, wat? Ashli Babbitt a martyr? This week in Tucker Carlson. Whatever happened to the Matt Gaetz indictment? — and we’re just getting started.

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.

BANANA REPUBLICANS OF AMERICA

Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show Podcast and to the Banana Republicans of America. On this week’s episode Halli and her partner in politics, veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper ponder Donald Trump’s refusal to concede his defeat by President-elect Joe Biden, and all his little Republican lemmings, too. But there’s more.

BANANA REPUBLICANS OF AMERICA

On November 3, 2020, America spoke and spoke loudly and clearly, much to Donald Trump’s dismay and denial. Former Vice-President Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. won the American presidency with over fifty percent of the vote, beating out the incumbent president, a rare event in American history. But Donald Trump is refusing to acknowledge his defeat, acting more like Gone With the Wind’s Aunt Pittypat, hysterical, hold up in the White House like an 19th century woman having the vapors, refusing a peaceful transition of power, a first in American history. Has the United States of America officially become a Banana Republican? And then there is the Covid-19 Pandemic that is ravaging the U.S.. It seems unfathomable that over 250,000 Americans are dead, and not a word from President Donald ‘Aunt Pittypat’ Trump, indulging in his own personal pity party.  

The Banana Republicans of America, the Covid19 Pandemic, was Senator Lindsey Graham trying to fix the election for Trump? The fate of the U.S. Senate remains up in the air. Will the Republican Party come to their senses? Will Trump? And that’s just where we begin this week 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!

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?

GOODBYE DEMENTIA, HELLO JOE BIDEN – ELLIS COSE

Goodbye Dementia, Hello Joe Biden

Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. On this episode of The Halli Casser-Jayne Show we begin with the revelation, much to the dismay of Republicans, that no, Joe Biden does not suffer from dementia and end with a conversation with bestselling author and critically acclaimed journalist, Ellis Cose, who wades into the debate to reveal how despite Facebook and Twitter, our Constitutional right to free speech has been co-opted by the wealthy and politically corrupt, the subject of his new book THE SHORT LIFE & CURIOUS DEATH OF FREE SPEECH IN AMERICA. It’s quite a journey in-between. Stay tuned.

ELLIS COSE

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. As Election 2020 dances  into full-swing, both Donald Trump and Joe Biden participated in town halls. Halli has much to say on the subject beginning with “Will the real Donald Trump please stand-up?” What does Matt have to say on the subject? From there it’s on to Covid-19 and the 200,000 dead American souls. Sigh. It didn’t have to be this way, as Vice President Pence’s former lead coronavirus task force aide, Republican Olivia Troye reveals when she slams Trump and endorses Biden in her new video. Another woman comes forth and accuses Trump of sexual assault. Why does no one seem to care? And then it’s time for Halli’s interview with Ellis Cose. The widely respected Cose offers an eye-opening wholly original examination of the state of free speech in America today. It’s not boring subject, promise. Nor is it a pretty picture. Never one to pull punches, Cose doesn’t.  

Bob Woodward, Election2020, Joe Biden and dementia, Donald Trump, stimulus package, Florida, Israel, UAE, Bahrain, Bibi Netanyahu, vaccines, the CDC, Attorney General Bill Barr, Lindsey Graham…you don’t want to miss this episode.

THERE’S A SUCKER BORN EVERY MINUTE – TRUMP

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

Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. On this episode of The Halli Casser-Jayne Show we begin with with the astonishing piece filed by journalist Jeffrey Goldberg for Atlantic magazine whose headline reads, “Trump: Americans Who Died in War Are ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers.’” It’s quite a journey we take from there.

There's a Sucker Born Every Minute Trump

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. The United States  reached yet another milestone, a weekly event. There are more than 6.17 million cases of Covid-19 in the United States, more than 187,000 dead and the outbreaks are continuing to spread via classrooms, bar-rooms and via Trump and MAGA Super Spreader rallies. And as we go to tape, there are 59 days 15 hours and 07 minutes until Election 2020. Joe Biden headed out on the campaign trail and much to Trump’s chagrin, did not sound like the old, doddering fool Trump wants voters to think Biden is, Attorney General Barr is on the agenda are are Nancy Pelosi, Antifa, and, of course, Donald Trump.

Stars and Stripes, Jacob Blake, Joe Biden, Covid-19, Donald Trump, Putin, Florida, Election 2020, Black Lives Matter…it’s September and November is just around the corner.

Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. On this episode of The Halli Casser-Jayne Show we begin with the Trump Convention, once known as the Republican National Committee Convention,when we take a look at the pomp, the circumstance and Melania Trump’s Fidel Castro imitation. How did Donald Trump do with his long-awaited acceptance speech? Long comes to mind. And Senator Kamala Harris – put out for the first time as the Vice-President nominee in her official role as Joe Biden’s attack dog? Did she attack Trump enough or does she need to hone her attack dog skills? Yet another Black man was shot by cops, this time in the back seven times. What is happening in America? And that’s just where we begin.

TRUMP CONVENTION

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. Counselor to the president, Kellyanne Conway, submitted her resignation after her teenage daughter raked Kellyanne and her Trump hating husband, George Conway over the coals, for all the public to see. Will her absence make a difference in Trump’s re-elect campaign? The situation in Kenosha, Wisconsin, a battleground state is a tinderbox. Will Joe Biden do what others can’t seem to, calm things down? A sex scandal has brought evangelical leader Jerry Falwell down. Will this be a come to Jesus moment for the movement? And 181,000 Americans are dead from Covid-19. Let’s talk.

The 2020 RNC Convention, Jacob Blake, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Covid-19, Melania Trump, Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump, Election 2020, Black Lives Matter…it’s August and things are hot, hot, hot and getting hotter.

Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. On this episode of The Halli Casser-Jayne Show we begin with the Democratic Party’s virtual convention, the Obama’s and their ground-breaking speeches. How did Joe Biden do as he met the moment he has long waited for? And Senator Kamala Harris – how did she fare in her first foray as Biden’s pick for Vice-President? And that’s just where we begin.

JOE BIDEN

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. As Covid-19 continues to ravage the nation, and Trump declares teachers essential workers, school districts open and quickly close as the virus rapidly spreads. The surprise of the week? The indictment of Trump crony and Trump’s one-time senior advisor, Steve Bannon, added to the long list of grifters among Trump’s coterie of friends indicted. When will Trump see the inside of the pokey? The attempt of Trump to steal the election by unraveling the United States Postal Service is on our list of topics to discuss. And Halli refuses to let the findings of the damning bipartisan Senate report of the Select Committee on Intelligence on Russia’s measures to interfere in the 2016 U.S. election be lost in the maelstrom of news.

The 2020 Democrat National Convention, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Covid-19, Michelle Obama, Barack Obama, Election 2020, Congress,  Donald Trump, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Florida, Republican…it’s August and things are hot, hot, hot and getting hotter.
