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.

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.

BLACK LIVES MATTER, THEY REALLY, REALLY DO!

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.

Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. On this episode of The Halli Casser-Jayne Show we begin with presumptive Democratic Party Presidential nominee Joe Biden’s pick for his Vice-President, Senator Kamala Harris; take a look at where the country is in the Covid-19 pandemic; explore Trump’s attempt to win re-election with his sabotage of the United States Post Office, and hey, what’s a podcast without a mention of Trump fixer Michael Cohen and the infamous pee tapes. That’s  where we begin.

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 ravages the United States, school’s are being forced to open by Republican governors. How is that gonna end? Before Joe Biden’s announcement of Kamala Harris as his running-mate, he was continuing his surge in the polls. Donald Trump knew that Harris was a likely pick, but has flailed in his response to her Biden nod. But what’s a day without Trump playing his two favorite hands: Sexism and racism? There was a deal struck between Israel and the UAE? Good for Netanyahu and Trump or not? Oh, and Congress, remember them? They hung desperate Americans out to try, unable to reach a deal between the parties, they took off for their August recess.

KAMALA HARRIS

Kamala Harris, Covid-19, Kanye West, Election 2020, Congress, Joe Biden, Donald Trump, White House press corps, the Abraham Accord, Michael Cohen book.  It’s August and things are hot, hot, hot and getting hotter.

Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. I am Halli Casser-Jayne.  Covid-19, Federal troops in American cities some are calling Trump’s Militia, Joe Biden ahead by 6 in Florida, and that’s just the half of it. Because besides our weekly take on all things politics, in our second half-hour we’re taking a trip to Alaska with the fun, spunky, astute author of OF BEARS AND BALLOTS: AN ALASKAN ADVENTURE IN SMALL-TOWN POLITICS, Heather Lende.

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 political conversation. And what a week it has been. Covid-19 is ravaging the United States and Donald Trump is back on the tube with his daily campaign events disguised as Covid-19 updates — not much information there. Florida has become the epicenter of the pandemic, 120 plus people dying everyday while Governor DeSantis tells everyone how wonderful things are. Federal troops are being deployed to American cities against the wishes of those states leaders, and Democrats are “looking into it” and that’s just where they begin. 

COVID-19

In our second half-hour, if you don’t know New York Times bestselling author Heather Lende, you’re in for a treat. Smart, funny, and a force to be reckoned with the girl from New York who moved to Alaska in her early twenties, and took the state by storm is back with a new book OF BEARS AND BALLOTS: AN ALASKAN ADVENTURE IN SMALL-TOWN POLITICS that tells the story of her misadventure into local politics. There are some lessons for us all in this story. Sarah Palin and Senator Lisa Murkowski each make an appearance. Tune in.

Covid-19, Election 2020, Congress, Joe Biden, Donald Trump’s Dystopia, Portland, Chicago, Alaska, Israel, Florida, local politics…these stories and more this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, always available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, on your favorite app, and on your Alexa device too.
