About Jack

Jack is really a storyteller, explorer, and humanitarian and everything else rolls out from there. As a writer, its what he does.  As a trial lawyer, its his most important tool.  As a former CIA officer, the only way to truly motivate people is to connect and to tell them a story that they can feel viscerally.  As a media analyst, what better way to make a point.  In the end, he tries to captivate his audience about the world as much as he himself is captivated.

[Russian TV Moscow] March 26th: Jack Talks U.S. Attack in Mosul

I appear on Russian TV Moscow on March 26th at 6 p.m. e.s.t.  On March 17th, the Americans conducted airstrikes on Mosul in support of Iraq ground operations.  Unfortunately, it was subsequetly learned that more than a hundred civilians, maybe two hundred or more, may have been killed.  The Iraqis are claiming it was ISIS but the investigaiton continues.  Regardless, I appear to talk about civilian casualties in warzones.  I saw this in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as in other parts of the world during wars.  Civilians always pay the heaviest price.

This is going to be a tough but interesting conversation.

[KOA Denver] March 24th: Jack Talks Latest on London Attack

I appear on KOA in Denver on March 24th at 8:10 a.m. e.s.t with my buddy Steffan Tubbs.  With the dead now at 5, including the attacker, the Brits are trying to assess exactly how a British citizen committed this act.  The rocess will be timely but there are a lot of questions.  He was apparently known to British security forces but for some reason, he wasn't that much of a priority.  Of course, there are limited recources and realities. And yet, London is one of the most closely surveilled cities in the world.  So what does all of this mean.  

This will be an interesting conversation.

[KOA Denver] March 21st: Jack Talks Trump Russian Intel. Investigation

I appear on KOA in Denver on 3/21 at 6 am cst to discuss FBI & NSA testimony before Congressional Committee regarding Russian/Trump links. This ongoing conversation continues to dog the Trump administration.  It is certainly a distraction but the question is, is it more than that.  Is there fire where there is so much smoke.

This is going to fun. Steffan Tubbs is one of my favorite people.

[AM950 Minneapolis] March 20th: Jack Talks Intel Investigations re. Trump and Russia

I appear on AM 950 in Minneapolis today at 4:05 p.m. c.s.t to discuss Director Comey's and Admiral Rogers' testimony before Congress. This is quite extraordinary.  Both actually admitted that there was nothing behind President Trump's claims regarding President Obama.  Let me say that again.  This was a lie.  Seriously, this is extraordinary.  In addition, the idea that there is an ongoing investigaiton of the Trump team and Russia is actually mindboggling.  

This is going to be good.

[I24 International] March 13th: Jack Talks Kellyanne Conway's Microwave Claims

I appear on I24 International with David Shuster to discuss the latest on the CIA, eavesdropping technology and Keppyanne Conway's claims that our microwave ovens are watching us.  Actually, it's quite extraordinary when you contemplate the source.  She is the senior advisor to the President of the United States.  What she says should matter.  Unfortunately, the more she seems to open her mouth, the more she sounds like a gameshow contestant on The Wheel of Fortune.  It is quite astounding.

Hope you can watch.

[MSNBC] March 11th: Jack Talks Trump/Russian Connections

I appear on AM Joy on MSNBC at 9 am. e.s.t. to discuss the latest connections between the Trump administration and the Russians.  It is quite extraordinary how many connections continue to pop up.  One of my concerns is the flat out denials and then the revelations. Consider Flynn, Sessions and more.  

Of course, the Russians have a long history of trying to influence elections.  This shouldn't be a shock.  The Americans have done the same thing over the decades.  The real question now is how successful the Russians were at co-opting the Trump machine during the election process.  One of the problems of course is that it is unclear what kinds of financial ties the Trump organization has with the Russians,  This is certainly an issue that needs to be considered.

This should be an interesting and fun conversation.  Joy is smart and funny and I always enjoy myself.

[Voice of America International] March 2nd: Jack Talks Russia, Trump, Sessions and More

I appear on Voice of American International today to discuss the ongoing story of Russia and Trump White House connections.  To be honest, I'm struggling to see where this ends.  My perception is that Flynn was never the end of the story although the Administration was despertely trying to argue it that way.  However, what is particualrly shocking about Attorney General Sessions is why he would say what he said during the confirmation hearings.  He had to know that this would come out.  Right?  So, what is going on with this? He has recused himself and could face much worse. In addition, reports are surfacing right now about White House Special Advisor abd son-in-law Jared Kushner also having contacts with the Russians.  Again, the net widens.

This promises to be an interesting conversation.

[AM 950 Minneapolis] March 2nd: Jack Talks Russians and AG Sessions' Recusal

I just appeared on AM 950 in Minneapolis with my friend Matt McNeil.  The story of Russian efforts to manipulate US elections and its blowback continue to expand and even gain traction.  Yes, Micahel Flynn is out. Now, it appears the Attorney General Jeff Sessions has made some incredibly serious gaffs that are going to be hard to justify.  As a result, he just recused himself from the investigation which is initself extraordinary. However, that may not be enough.  He could become a target of the investigation and may actually face perjury charges.  

While perjury charges seem unlikely at this point or even his resignation, this issue is not going away and will dog the GOP for a loing time to come.  POTUS certainly wants to talk about something else but his war with the media has certainly not helped him make too many friends in that camp so expect the fight to continue, and with gusto.

Hope you were able to catch it.
