THE ‘B’ WORDS: BIDEN, BORDER, BUSH, BIBI, BLAME

The border and migrants seeking asylum in the U.S. is once again at the forefront of the news. There’s a lot of blame to go around, but who is going to fix the uniquely American problem? Boulder, Colorado, and yet another mass shooting, pearl clutching by the Dems and their familiar cry for gun control legislation, heads in the sand by Republicans and a rallying cry for their Second Amendment rights, the Constitution be damned. In case you forgot, their was an attack by homegrown terrorists on the Capitol. Who will pay the price? Another election in Israel. Does Bibi Netanyahu survive? Tune in, there’s a lot to talk about this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show with Matthew Cooper.

And stay tuned for our second half-four. It’s a jaw-dropping conversation with the author of the new biography of the Bush women when J. Randy Taraborrelli sits down with Halli to talk about his oh, my goodness bio of the Bush women as told in his brand new book GRACE & STEEL. If you think you knew Barbara, nope. Laura Bush? A lot of surprises here, too. Did we really know George H.W. Bush? How about W? Nancy Reagan makes an appearance you won’t soon forget. And…well…here we go into uncharted territory.

It’s the “B” words this week, Biden, Bush, Bibi, the border, blame and we’re just getting started. Tune in to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, the podcast available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, on all your favorite apps, and on your Alexa device, too.

THE PRINCESS AND HER PEEVE + THE FILIBUSTER

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

The Royals Harry and Meghan, Cuomo under fire, Joe Biden’s extraordinary win, oh, and the filibuster, and that’s just where we begin this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show Podcast 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, and Halli talks with Former deputy chief of staff to Senator Harry Reid, Adam Jentleson, the author of KILL SWITCH: THE RISE OF THE MODERN SENATE AND THE CRIPPLING OF AMERICAN DEMOCRACY.  

THE ROYALS HARRY AND MEGHAN

What a week, beginning with Harry and Meghan’s jaw-dropping interview with Oprah, Meghan’s scorched-earth, no holes barred conversation that addressed, among other things, the alleged lack of support Meghan got when she went to the palace, her persistent suicidal ideations; the denial of security protection for the Sussexes’ child, Archie; and the royals’ apparent prenatal concerns over the skin tone of Meghan and Harry’s progeny. Oy vey is mir! But that wasn’t all. President Biden secured a huge win for his infant presidency with the passage of his 1.9 Trillion Great Society Remake that Republican lawmakers couldn’t stop and sent them to bed aghast. Governor Cuomo is accused of sexual harassment by more women. Halli and Matt discuss whether he can survive the onslaught or not. And Republican Senators are retiring in droves, which leaves the Senate where?

The Royals Harry and Meghan

Former deputy chief of staff to Senator Harry Reid, Adam Jentleson is the public affairs director at Democracy Forward, a columnist for GQ, and frequent commentator for CNN, New York Times, and elsewhere. In  KILL SWITCH: THE RISE OF THE MODERN SENATE AND THE CRIPPLING OF AMERICAN DEMOCRACY, Jentleson combines his behind-the-scenes experience with historical research to map out the Senate’s decline from a great deliberative body to the nexus of partisan gridlock. With the help of Mr. Jentleson, we take a look at the filibuster, it’s history, it’s effect on the decline of the Senate, it’s affect on American’s lives, minority rule, and what needs to change to return the American government to the vision of our Founding Fathers.

The Royals, Meghan and Harry, Oprah Winfrey, Piers Morgan, Andrew Cuomo, sexual harassment, the filibuster, President Biden’s Covid Relief Bill, the future of the Senate and we’re just getting started. It’s a packed The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, the podcast available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, on all your favorite apps, and on your Alexa device, too.

First 100 days

Donald Trump’s First 100 days. Will he be impeached or will he survive as President of the United States for his full four-year term? What is it like to cover the presidency of arguably one of the most controversial presidents in United States history? Halli speaks with the Distinguished Professor of History at American University, author of the much talked about book THE CASE FOR IMPEACHMENT, Allan J. Lichtman. And joining Halli at her table is veteran newsman and the political editor for the prestigious NEWSWEEK magazine, Matthew Cooper to review Donald Trump’s First 100 Days in office.

Allan J. Lichtman, has correctly forecasted thirty years of presidential outcomes. And he continued his forecasting winning streak in the fall of 2016 when he predicted that Donald J. Trump would defeat the heavily favored Democrat, Hillary Clinton, to win the presidential elections. The pollsters wish they could have fared as well. Hillary acolytes wish he had broken his winning streak. But all might not be lost for those who are still nursing the Clinton loss. In his new book, THE CASE FOR IMPEACHMENT, Professor Lichtman turns his focus to President Donald Trump and his next forecast – that it is not a question of IF President Trump will be impeached but a question of WHEN!

First 100 daysNewsweek magazine’s political editor, Matthew Cooper, has worked for some of America’s most prestigious magazines including Time, The New Republic, National Journal, U.S. News & World Report. He wrote for Newsweek in the 1990s and rejoined the magazine in 2014. A veteran White House correspondent, he’s known for his in-depth reporting and analysis from Washington. Cooper also earned national attention during the CIA leak case where his refusal to name his sources went all the way to the Supreme Court. He has appeared on “60 Minutes,” “Meet the Press” and a host of broadcast and cable shows.
