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?

Maybe, or maybe not the most important thing to come of the much touted Biden and Putin summit happened in a Biden press conference following the summit, when Spicy Biden jumped down the throat of CNN White House correspondent Kaitlin Collins. The always polite and measured President gave us a rare glimpse of his Irish, deliberate? Matt and I discuss. There’s more, this was a week of revelations into how far the former guy Trump was willing to go to retain power. But also revealed, how reticent the Democratic Party for all its protestations is willing to go to finish Trump. The frustration is not just mine. Washington Post columnist Greg Sargent and legal scholar, Laurence Tribe are among the many starting to voice their frustration at the do-nothing Democrats. There’s a lot more on our weekly politics review. Tune in.

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.

TRUMP, BIBI, GAETZ, THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR & CICADAS?

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

Trump, Bibi, Gaetz, the Revolutionary War and cicadas — that’s just where we begin 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, and New York Times bestselling author Patrick K. O’Donnell whose new book THE INDESPENSIBLES is already on bestseller lists nationwide.

Everything changes and everything remains the same, well maybe. Trump is back in the news (did he ever go away?), insisting he’ll be reinstated as President by August. It appears that the longest serving Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu’s 12-year run is coming to an end, but maybe not. Be careful when you count Bibi down and out. Rep. Matt Gaetz is possibly facing obstruction charges (will he ever be arrested?), Covid-19 is on the wane, jobs are coming back, and, oh, Halli has some advice on how to handle the Democrat’s Joe Manchin problem.  

TRUMP, BIBI, GAETZ, THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR & CICADAS?

In our second half-hour, Halli talks with New York Times bestselling author, Patrick K. O’Donnell about his latest highly-touted book THE INDISPENSABLES. O’Donnell brings us a vivid account of an impressive Revolutionary War unit, a Massachusetts regimen, weaving a gripping narrative that captures the extraordinary story of fighting men of whom few Americans have ever heard but who nonetheless proved themselves “indispensable” to the cause of American liberty. And for the record, the similarities to the state of our burgeoning nation then, bear uncanny similarities to where we are today.

Trump, Bibi, Gaetz, the Revolutionary War and cicadas, the January 6 Commission, anti-Semitism, Israel, Mike Flynn, infrastructure, bipartisanship, Joe Manchin, President Joe Biden…there’s a lot to get to.

WHAT TO DO ABOUT TRUMP’S GOP?

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

What to do about Trump’s GOP? A serious question as America watches the “Republican” insurrectionists hijack what was once the Grand Old Party under the guidance of the Former Guy, the unlikely arch-Conservative from the stalwart Republican dynasty, daughter of the Former Vice President Dick Cheney, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) willing to put her political career on the line to save the soul of her party and some say democracy. Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Podcast this week all about the threat to democracy the Democratic Party might not be taking seriously enough, if New York Times columnist Thomas Freidman is correct, a spirited conversation on the subject and more between Halli and her partner in politics, former White House correspondent and Newsweek and Time alum, Matthew Cooper.

WHAT TO DO ABOUT TRUMP'S GOP?

In a frank piece in the New York Times and in an eye-opening exchange with Anderson Cooper on his nightly cable show A360 this week, Friedman warned that President Biden’s successful handling of the Covid-19 Pandemic and the passing of his Stimulus Package seems to have lulled many into thinking that Donald Trump and his Big Lie that the election was stolen, which led to the Capitol insurrection on Jan. 6, would all go away. It hasn’t. In fact, Friedman says, the opposite is happening. “We are not OK,” Freidman insists. “America’s democracy is in real danger. In fact, we are closer to a political civil war — more than at any other time in our modern history.” You don’t want to miss Halli and Matt’s discussion. Do they agree? Do you? Can Rep. Lynn Cheney stop the madness that has overtaken her Republican Party? Should she stay in and fight, or leave? There’s more. Tune in. You might need a tranquilizer by the time Halli and Matt are done.

What to do about Trump’s GOP? The fate of Liz Cheney, Mitt Romney, the Republican Party. And what’s in store for Rudy Giuliani? Is it true that ETTD, as Rick Wilson so famously said? Covid-19, Caitlyn Jenner, Bill and Melinda Gates, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis…there’s a lot to get to.

THE STATE OF THE DISUNION

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

President Joe Biden delivered his first address to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday night, but since this was his first address, it is not technically called a “State of the Union” speech. It is an “annual message.” Did you know that? This week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show we take a look at Biden’s not a State of the Union speech and a whole lot more 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.

STATE OF THE DISUNION

President Joe Biden spoke to a joint session of Congress but because of the Covid-19 Pandemic, he spoke to less than 200 lawmakers and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, history made when behind the President stood Vice-President Kamala Harris and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, a first for all women, a first for women of color. How did Biden do? Halli called the president a gracious man. You’ll want to tune in to hear Matt’s impressions and a rare disagreement between Matt and Halli over Republican Senator Tim Scott’s response to President Biden’s speech. But that’s not all. Former Mayor of New York, Rudy Giuliani, once a beloved figure in America had his home and office searched by federal agents as part of lobbying probe, and according to sources Giuliani’s electronic devices were confiscated by authorities. We discuss Covid-19 and the stubborn who won’t get a jab, and those who are having difficulty returning to normal life. Democratic Party policy guru James Carville has a few things to say about “wokeness.” Will Dems take his advice?

Vladimir Putin, Alexei Navalny, Ukraine, Rep. Liz Cheney, Rep. Matt Gaetz, Rep. Val Demings, California Gavin Newsom…even Willie Nelson makes an appearance.

MAGA MEN, MEGHAN & BIDEN'S BIG MISTAKE

Migrants are crossing the border in droves. How is it that the Biden administration got caught off guard? How is that the Biden administration is repeating the mistakes of the Trump administration? After a perfectly flawless nearly two months in office, a brilliant roll-out of the Covid-19 vaccine, a phenomenal legislative achievement with the passage of his Rescue Bill, even Republican lawmakers are envious of Biden. And yet, there’s that migrant problem threatening to undermine all the good President Biden has done. Then, of course, there’s those MAGA men who are refusing to get the vaccination. What’s up with that? And there’s the Governor Cuomo situation. And Meghan Markle and her Harry are still causing ripples across the pond and here.

It’s a full plate for a full hour, just Halli and Matt, MAGA men, migrants, Meghan and Harry, Mitch McConnell, Andrew Cuomo, sexual harassment, Covid-19, the filibuster, President Biden and we’re just getting started.
