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, 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.

[WVLY West Virginia] August 28th: Jack Talks Trump's Pardon of Joe Arpaio

I appear on WVLY West Virginia with my buddy Howard Monroe on August 28th.  Mr. Trump is standing by his pardoning of former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.  And yet, there is a reason he is being criticized by both Republicans and Democrats including a former Vice President and a current Republican Speaker of the House.  He let Arpaio off of the hook before he was even sentenced, before he ever served a day in jail, despite the fact that he ignored and absolutely repeated flouted a Federal Judge's order to not violate the U.S. Constitution and target people because of their ethnic heritage which he has absolutely no right to do. 

It is striking and just another example of this President's willingness to ignore and undercut the Judiciary, an equal in the balance of power that is simply fundamental to the operation of the United States of America. He attack of the Federal Judge in Ohio that he described as a "Mexican" was breathtaking.  This is likely worse.

I continue to wonder how long Republicans will accept this kind of behavior.  This is nothing short of an attack on the institutional structure of the United States. I hope you can catch it.
