MOURNING AGAIN IN AMERICA
IT’S MOURNING AGAIN IN AMERICA
It’s mourning again in America as the Covid-19 Pandemic takes it’s toll on America and refrigeration trucks are deployed all across the country as people die unnecessarily from the virus and morgues are overwhelmed. Welcome to the effects of Republican madness and The Halli Casser-Jayne Show and that’s just where we begin this week when joining Halli at her table to discuss the latest political news is her partner in politics former White House correspondent and Newsweek and Time alum, Matthew Cooper.
We mourn. We mourn those who have lost their lives to Covid-19 unnecessarily when a simple jab in the arm might have saved their lives. We mourn the loss of Texas women’s right to choose what happens to their bodies as the Supreme Court eviscerates by a shadow vote Roe v. Wade. We mourn for the lives lost twenty years ago, the 2,750 people who were killed in New York, 184 at the Pentagon, and 40 in Pennsylvania when America was attacked by terrorists. But we also celebrate. There is a vaccine to thwart a ruthless virus. American women are strong and will stand up and fight for their rights, and there are a lot of men who will stand up with them. The terrorists hit us hard, but we fought back and though America has lots of demons to fight right here at home, we are still here.
It’s mourning again in America. But we will survive Covid-19, reckless, cynical governors like Ron DeSantis and Gregg Abbott, a Supreme Court that has turned itself into a lowly Night Court.

DOG DAYS OF DESANTIS
The dog days of Ron DeSantis are upon us. While the Governor of Florida mandates no mask mandates, Florida hospitals crumble under the weight of Covid-19 cases. Schools open and parents anguish, send their kids to public schools or not, a Sophie’s Choice question forced on moms and dads statewide due to the Florida governor’s malfeasance. Welcome to Republican madness and The Halli Casser-Jayne Show and that’s just where we begin this week when joining Halli at her table to discuss the latest political news is her partner in politics former White House correspondent and Newsweek and Time alum, Matthew Cooper.
Yes, it’s August and the dog days of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis are upon us. Remember, what happens in Florida does not stay in Florida. Holding fast to the governor’s mandate of a no mask mandate despite the objections of health officials nationwide, Florida Covid-19 cases surge to their highest levels since the pandemic began, the Delta variant more virulent than earlier strains of the virus. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) nearly twenty-five thousand new cases were reported in one day in Florida, some 15,449 residents hospitalized with only 230 of 261 hospitals reporting their COVID patients and nearly 90 percent of the state’s intensive care unit beds filled. Over 600 Floridians died this week, the total Florida Covid-19 deaths now over 40,000, a catastrophe of one man’s bad judgment, Governor Ron DeSantis. Will he reverse course? Halli and Matt ponder that question and slice and dice the other political news of the week, and there is much. Tune in.
The dog days of Ron DeSantis, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo resigns, the bipartisan passage of Joe Biden’s Infrastructure bill, Matt Gaetz, the Afghanistan tragedy, Rand Paul as squirrel, inflation, and for comic relief a little bit on Rudy Giuliani. But that’s just where we begin.

THE BIG CS - COVID, CUOMO, CONMAN TRUMP
SECRETS AND LIES REPUBLICAN STYLE
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.

REPUBLICAN PARTY'S COME-TO-JESUS MOMENT
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.
The Republican Party’s come-to-Jesus-moment, the January 6 Commission, Trump’s 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.

TRUMP LOVES HITLER, WAT?
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.
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 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? Ashlii Babbitt a matyr? This week in Tucker Carlson. Whatever happened to the Matt Gaetz indictment and we’re just getting started.

I am listening to the Kim Goldman interview. Hallie asks some great questions. It is very difficult to keep a listener tuned in for an entire hour and I am tuned in! Great work Hallie!
Listened skeptically after a recommendation... and my gut was right. Elitist, contemptuous of opposing views, cynical, not the “debate” I was told I’d get. Meh.
A truly terrible Podcast by a truly terrible woman. I have never heard so many mistruths in my life. Please get her off of here.
