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.

[AM950 Minneapolis] April 24th: Jack Talks Trump/Russia and the Senate Intel Committee

I appear on AM 950 in Minneapolis on April 24th at 3:30 p.m. c.s.t.  As the story of Trump and the Russians refuses to die, there are three ongoing investigations, the FBI, the House Intelligence Committee and the Senate Intelligence Committee.  While the FBI investigation iis pretty veiled and difficult to figure out at this point, it is clear the the House Intelligence Committee is in turmoil and a political trainwreck  Congressman Nunez has recused himself and the fingerpointing continues. That leaves the Senate Intelligence Committee.

At this point, Senator Burr's Chairmnaship of this Committee certainly has a lot of questions to answer.  For instance, the Committee has interviewed nobody.  In fact, they have subpoened nobody. Further, they have no fulltime staff investigating the matter and of the part time staff they do have, none of them have prosecutorial experience. None of them have investigative experience.  And, none of them have intelligence experience.  So, what exactly are they doing?  At this rate, President Trump will be out of office before anybody even starts addressing the issue of whether or not he or his team colluded with the Russians.  

Lets be clear, this is not fake news. U.S. intelligence has concluded that the Russians absolutely attempted to manipulate the Presidential election.  We also know that the Russians were trying to help Trump.  The only question is whether Trump actively or passively accepted that help.  This is what we need to know.

This will be a fun interview.


[AM950 Minneapolis] April 12th: Jack Talks Russia's Intentions

I appear on AM 950 Minneapolis with Matt McNeil on April 12th at 3:00 p.m.  With the constant drip drip drip of stories coming out about Russia and the Trump Administration, it is sometimes easy to miss the big picture. What exactly is Russia doing and why?  We need to contemplate where Russia was before the fall of the Berlin Wall and  the "end of the cold war."  The Soviet Union became a has-been and was laughed off of the world stage.  However, the Riussians never thought of it that way and Vladimir Putin has had very different ideas for a long time.  Contemplate what they are doing in the Middle East right now.  They have been having a dramatic impact in Iran, in Syria, in Turkey and more. Consider Russia's willingness to reach back into the former Soviet Republics and what they did in the Crimea. They aren't done and they have cconcept of Russia's rightful place in the world  

I will appear with Matt to talk big picture about where Russia is going and what is coming next.  There is a lot to talk about and few to nobody is actually doing it.  This is going to be something worth listening to I believe. I hope you can catch it.


[AM 950 Minneapolis] April 7th: Jack Talks U.S. Airstrikes

I appear on AM 950 in Minneapolis on April 7th at 3:30 p.m. with my friend Matt McNeil.  I appears that President Trump is getting a lot of support from the American people for his decision to fire 59 tomahawk missiles at a cost of $100 million into Syria.  Many are trying to understand why the President made this decision considering his very words about American involvement in Syria, about America first, and more.  We will discuss this and more.

Hope you can listen.


[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.


[AM 950 Minneapolis] January 16th: Jack Talks Trump's Foreign Policy

I appear on AM 950 in Minneapolis on January 16th at 4 p.m. c.s.t. to discuss the Secretary of State designate and President elect Trump's possible foreign policy.  From lifting sanctions on Russia to disrupting the One China policy to moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the ramifications of what this soon to be President could do is, frankly, astounding.  We will dig into this issue and talk about what may happen in the first 100 days.

Hope you can listen.  


[AM 950 Minneapolis] January 12th: Jack Talks Russian Hacking and Trump

I appear on AM 950 in Minneapolis with my buddy Matt McNeil to discuss the latest on 17 U.S. Intelligence organizations all coming together to determine that the Russians not only attmepted to hack U.S. websites but attempted to impact the elections and that Putin himself was orchestrating the operation.  It is an extraordinary story and one we will continue to follow.  

Hope you can catch it.  


[AM950 Radio] September 9th: Jack talks Russia, Cyberattacks and International Law

This will be an long form interview and will be a lot of fun.

Lancine and Madosu Fofana received the phone call that is every parent's nightmare.  There was an accident and their son Mohamed was missing.  

On May 22, 2013, two fourth grade classes from Peter Hobert Elementary School in St. Louis Park took a field trip to Lilydale Regional Park in St. Paul.  As the children searched for fossils, the earth gave way burying the group in four feet of mud, sand and rocks on a Mississippi River bluff.  Two were killed, including Mohamed Fofana.    

While many people would have just given up and quit, the Fofanas were determined to do something in his memory.  They decided to fulfill their son's life wish to build a school for poor kids in West Africa.
