SECRETS AND LIES REPUBLICAN STYLE

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

We’re only as sick as our darkest secrets and our lies takes on a whole new meaning this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show Podcast when joining me at my table to discuss the latest political news is my partner in politics former White House correspondent and Newsweek and Time alum, Matthew Cooper, and in our second half-hour Pulitzer Prize winning author of the extraordinary book WILMINGTON’S LIE, THE MURDEROUS COUP OF 1898 AND THE RISE OF WHITE SUPREMACY, David Zucchino.

Trump, Fox News hosts, the entire Republican Party have been lying to their supporters about Covid-19 and the safety and efficacy of the Covid-19 vaccine. But now the chickens, as they say, have come home to roost. Thanks to reluctant MAGAs, a virus that could be easily eradicated thanks to the vaccine is infecting the unvaccinated with a vengeance and those who took the vaccine are finding themselves at greater risk due to the recalcitrant Republicans and the new Covid variant. It’s nonsensical. Why are Republican leaders and Fox News hosts lying to their own, when they themselves are vaccinated?  Tune in to hear Halli go off on that subject and more, including the first January 6 Select Committee hearing, where more Republican secrets and lies are being uncovered.

In our second half-hour Halli introduces you to Pulitzer Prize winning, North Carolina author DAVID ZUCCHINO. A contributing writer for the New York Times, Zucchino has covered wars and civil conflicts in more than three dozen countries and is a four-time Pulitzer Prize finalist for his reporting in Iraq, Lebanon, Africa, and inner-city Philadelphia. And now he has won yet another coveted Pulitzer for his extraordinary non-fiction national bestselling book WILMINGTON’S LIE, THE MURDEROUS COUP OF 1898 AND THE RISE OF WHITE SUPREMACY, a gripping account of one of the most disturbing, though virtually unknown, political events in American history. David writes brilliantly, he is an even better talker. This is an interview you don’t want to miss.

We’re only as sick as our secrets and lies. Covid-19, the January 6 Commission, infrastructure, Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis, this week in Tucker Carlson, white supremacy and that’s just where we begin.

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.

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

Spicy Biden, Vlad Putin, and Halli’s exasperation! Oh, my, do we have a show for you when joining me at my table this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show is my partner in politics, former White House correspondent and Newsweek and Time alum, Matthew Cooper, and in our second half-hour my friend and Putin expert, Franz Sedelmayer, the only individual ever to collect money from Vladimir Putin’s Russia.

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.

SPICY BIDEN, VLAD PUTIN & HALLI'S FRUSTRATION!

In my second half-hour, I welcome back my go-to guy on all things Vladimir Putin, Franz Sedelmeyer. Once the best of friends, Putin and then President Boris Yeltsin expropriated Sedelmayer’s Russian company at great financial cost to Sedelmayer who didn’t take what happened lightly. Despite risk to himself, he took his case to the international court and beat Putin in a 20-year campaign against the Kremlin and won, the intrepid Franz Sedelmayer the only individual ever to collect money from Vladimir Putin’s Russia.

Spicy Biden, Vlad Putin, and Halli’s exasperation!

THE TRUMP CULT & ITS BAD BOYS

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

Matt Gaetz, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Tucker Carlson, oh yeah, and Donald Trump. What do they have in common? They are members of the Trump Cult and a GOP gone bad boys and that’s 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. We bring it all together in our second half-hour when Halli is joined by Dr. Steven Hassan, the author of the eye-opening book THE CULT OF TRUMP in which he expertly takes us through a fascinating, engaging exploration of the coercive control technique Donald Trump used daily as president and continues to deploy in his post presidency.

THE TRUMP CULT & ITS BAD BOYS
THE TRUMP CULT & ITS BAD BOYS

But in our first half-hour: Republican Florida Representative Matt Gaetz, a member in standing of the Trump Cult, is under investigation by the Department of Justice over an alleged sexual relationship he had with a 17-year-old girl and investigators are examining whether the congressman has violated federal sex trafficking laws. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is accused of fudging the state’s Covid-19 numbers, covering up as many as 14,000 deaths. Gaetz ran to Fox News’ Tucker Carlson to defend himself and may have implicated the firebrand anchor his naughty-boy antics, and all three are dyed-in-the-wool Trump cultists, which makes you wonder what’s the criteria for becoming a member of the Trump Cult?

THE TRUMP CULT & ITS BAD BOYS

We answer that question and take a deep-dive into the cult of Trump in our second half-hour. Calling Republican lawmakers members of a cult has been a favorite moniker of the press, but is there such a thing as a Trump Cult? Steven Hassan, PH.D., a mental health professional who has been helping people leave destructive cults since 1976, after he was deprogrammed from Sun-Myung Moon’s Unification Church, The Moonies, by his family. He has written a must-read book, THE CULT OF TRUMP, and has some shocking things to tell us when he talks with Halli.

The Cult of Trump, Matt Gaetz, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Tucker Carlson, Joe Biden, Covid-19, Infrastructure, George Floyd, Derek Chauvin Trial, migrants, Israel’s election we’ve got it all for you.  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.

Biden: No Drama! No Screwups! (So Far)

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

President Biden. Are you getting used to our having a new Commander-in-Chief and an administration that prides itself on no drama! Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show Podcast and the new normal, where we begin this week when Halli and her partner in politics, former White House correspondent and Newsweek and Time alum Matthew Cooper dissect the political news of the week, and the shenanigans of our lawmakers, too.

This week we take a look at Impeachment 2.0. Who were the winners, who were the losers? Trump was acquitted but more Senators voted him guilty then in any previous impeachment trial. We move on to Covid-19. Halli had her first vaccination. You’ll want to hear her experience. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis vs. California Governor Gavin Newsom. Two different styles, but some say they got their states to the same outcomes. Floridian Halli offers a different opinion. Then it’s onto the Middle East. What’s up with President Biden taking so long to phone in to our ally Prime Minister Netanyahu? Is there a more impressive Congressman than Rep. Jamie Raskin? Good riddance to Rush Limbaugh as we say RIP. And what becomes of “the former guy,” as President Biden calls you know who.

President Biden, Rush Limbaugh dead at 70, impeachment, Prime Minister Netanyahu, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, Covid-19. Tucker Carlson and Fox News. We’re just getting started. Tune in to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show Podcast with Matthew Cooper, always available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, on all your favorite apps, and on your Alexa device, too. Let’s talk politics!

Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. I am Halli Casser-Jayne.  On this episode of The Halli Casser-Jayne Show: Is Trump losing it? And we don’t mean only the election — Covid-19, mail-in voting, Joe Biden’s continued surge in the polls, Tucker Carlson, Ghislaine Maxwell and we’re just beginning in our weekly take on all things politics.

Ghislaine Maxwell

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. We buried an American icon, Congressman John Lewis, and lost a little more of what has been great about America. Trump continued to be Trump, threatening the possibility of postponing the November 3 election. And Covid-19 continued to ravage the nation, taking the life of an anti-masker and Trump acolyte Herman Cain. The country continued to struggle with the idea of opening up its schools. And throw in a little Trump race-baiting and oh what a show we have for you!

Covid-19, Election 2020, Congress, Joe Biden, Donald Trump, Florida, Kamala Harris, Susan Rice, Michael Flynn…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.
