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.

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.

OCEAN CRUISES, LAND SHRIMP & POLITICS?

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

Ocean cruises, land shrimp, and politics? Yep! It’s a smorgasbord of politics 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 as together they slice and dice all things politics, and some days, our lawmakers, too.

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. Joe Biden takes a trip to Europe…there’s a lot to get to.

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.

JUST SAY CUOMO – PHOTOG LYNN DAVIS

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

Just Say Cuomo! Another male politician is on the hot seat battling charges of sexual harassment, the recently adored New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. I there a there there? We tackle that question and meet with one of America’s great women photographers, Lynn Davis, the focus of a new, extraordinary film that takes a look at climate change but is something truly unique. It’s a celebration of Women’s History Month 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.  

JUST SAY CUOMO

How quickly the tide can change in politics. Only a few months ago, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was the darling of America, his compassion-filled daily updates on his state’s battle with coronavirus, a salve to the bombastic, unfeeling then President Trump much watch TV. Now after three young women have accused the governor of sexual harassment, the love is gone. And we as a society are back to that question of what’s credible? What’s fair? Must we believe a woman just because she says so? Have we swung too far in believing men at the expense of men’s rights? There’s much to discuss and Halli and Matt do, and a whole lot more from the HR-1 Bill, to the antics of Republican governors and their cheeky handling of coronavirus, to President Biden’s stimulus package and oh, so much more. Tune in, won’t you!

JUST SAY CUOMO - PHOTOG LYNN DAVIS

Sometimes we cross paths with something so astonishing, so unexpected, it just takes our breath away, And that is what will happen to you when you watch the new documentary MELTDOWN a film that features the stunning work of renowned photographer Lynn Davis and the profound insight of climate scientist Tony Leiserowitz  as they confront the effects of climate change in a remote area of the world, Illulisat, Greenland, “ground Zero” for the climate crisis, too many refuse to acknowledge as a real threat to civilization. Produced as a small, intimate conversation, the film’s stage the large, stunning canvas of glaciers and ice sheets, MELTDOWN is profoundly enlightening, a remarkable convergence of art, science, and humanity, where beauty and tragedy share the stage, a starkly thoughtful lesson for those who don’t know that we are the earth and the earth is us, we are the one. Davis, the award-winning “Ice” photographer, friend of the greats like Imogen Cunningham, Robert Mapplethorpe, is one of the most fascinating artists of our time, as you’ll learn from our interview.

Just Say Cuomo, photographer Lynn Davis, climate change, Women’s History Month, President Biden, Covid-19, voter suppression, and so much more, this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show Podcast with Matthew Cooper and always available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, on all your favorite apps, and on your Alexa device, too. Let’s talk politics and prose!

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.

CITIZEN’S UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FAIL

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

Citizen’s United We Stand, Divided We Fail. On this week’s episode of The Halli Casser-Jayne Show it’s a beautiful day in Joe Biden’s neighborhood, the United States now officially under new management, gone is ‘you know who,’ and we begin our four year stroll alongside President Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. and Vice-President Kamala Harris.

Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show Podcast, it’s nice to have you here. As we do every week, newsman Matthew Cooper joins Halli for their weekly political review in which Matt and Halli slice and dice all things politics. And what a week it has been. Despite the scourge of the Covid19 pandemic, Washington, D.C. in shock after Trump’s followers, at his incitement, stormed the Capitol, a city under military might, former Vice-President Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States. And we have a new Vice-President, too, her name, Kamala Harris.The future for America is promising, right? Well, maybe not. After the other scourge that was the presidency of Donald Trump was officially brought to a close, the Republicans appear none the less chastened. Candidate Biden promised to unite the country, Republicans, despite the fact that their leader was impeached a second time for his role in the assault on the American Capitol and run out of town in shame, appear to want to continue to sow division, seemingly willing to do anything to stop President Biden’s efforts at unification, enacting his agenda, taking control of the Covid19 Pandemic, bringing the country back to fiscal order. And what of the second trial of the former president? There’s a lot to dissect. Here we go.

Covid19, impeachment, President Biden, Vice-President Harris, what will be the fate of seditionists Senator Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz,  Trump’s militia storming the Capitol, the future of the filibuster, which Republican will be the first to put country before party — all on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show Podcast always available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, on all your favorite apps, and on your Alexa device, too. Let’s talk politics!

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!

Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show Podcast. This week: When the stakes couldn’t be any higher, as Election day 2020 draws near, Halli and her partner in politics, veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper, assess the state of the race in what seems like the longest presidential race in American history, sigh.

WAKE ME WHEN IT'S OVER

There are a lot of questions that need answering this week. Can we believe the polls showing that Joe Biden is ahead? How much effect will the rising cases of Covid-19 nationwide have on the outcome of the race? How far is Donald Trump willing to go to retain his presidency? Is Vice President Mike Pence willing to kill Americans to win re-election? What happens if the election is thrown to the Republican packed Supreme Court? Will Senator Bernie Sanders be able to contain the progressive wing of the Democratic Party through election day? Can Democrats flip the Senate? What about red states blue? These questions and answers, and even more 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.

Wake me when it’s over. Election2020, the fate of the U.S. Senate, Amy Coney Barrett, Covid-19, mail-in voting, the Latino vote, Kamala Harris who? Florida, Florida, Florida and that’s just where we begin.

Let’s debate the debates, Typhoid Donald Trump, Joe Biden’s campaign, Election2020, Covid-19 and that’s just where we begin this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show with Matthew Cooper.

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. Donald Trump tested positive for Covid-19, was dramatically medevacked to Walter Reed Medical Center, took us all on a wild ride through the streets of D.C., waving his hand as if he was the Queen of England. But hey, Trump was just beginning. After returning to the White House Trump gave us more drama when he played the part of Argentine dictator Juan Peron on the White House balcony “don’t cry for me tra la la.” Finally, there was the Vice-Presidential debate and just when you thought it couldn’t get any crazier, a fly landed on the tarmac that is Mike Pence’s thick patch of white hair, and they say Gd works in mysterious ways. There’s more, tune in. You don’t want to miss Halli’s brilliant prediction, too!

Let’s debate the debates, Donald Trump, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Mike Pence, Election2020, Trump’s Covid-19 diagnosis–it’s a wild ride this week for Halli and Matt — and the fly on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show with Matthew Cooper, always available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, on all your favorite apps, and on your Alexa device too.
