About Jack

Jack is really a storyteller, international explorer, and humanitarian and everything else rolls out from there. As a writer, its what he does.  As a trial lawyer and trial skills teacher aroud the world, 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 and its people as much as he himself is captivated.

Trump the Strongman Flexes at United Nations HQ

President Trump spoke before the United Nations General Assembly today. To be honest, he almost sounded like every totalitarian dictator I have heard.  He completely rejects globalism.  And yet, how is it that the U.S. became the most powerful country on the planet.  He completely rejects the ICC and its legitimacy and yet in some parts of the world, it in the only thing that has brought any justice whatsoever.  He continues to ratchet up threats against the Iranians and his advisor just days ago said that there will be regime change in Iran. He is arguing soverignty and yet is demanding the Chinese and others do what the Americans want.  Just odd.  

This is an extraordinary time in history and the Republicans seem more interested in sitting back and watching the insanity because he is their guy. The entire has world is watching with concern and dread in some cases. This President is exacerbating that.

Today, I will appear on Press TV Tehran to discuss.  It is particularly interesting as this is not an academic question when the President and his advisors have threatened to remove your democratically elected leadership - and not for the first time.

I hope you can watch.
