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 international human rights and criminal lawyer and trial skills teacher around 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.

[Podcast] Congressman Bobby Scott Talks Attacks on Democrats

Congressman Bobby Scott (D-VA) joins me to talk about healthcare and about the attacks on Democratic members of Congress.  He also talks a lot of the future and the specifics of the new law.

Click here for a link to my interview with Congressman Scott.


Congressman Adam Smith Joins The Program.

Congressman Adam Smith (D-WA) joins the program to talk Guantanamo Bay.  He has an interesting take and certainly will cut against the Democratic Party when he thinks others are wrong.  I like the independence even if I occasionally disagree with him on issues.  

Hope you can listen.


Jack Interviews Congressman Dennis Kucinich.

Jack interviews Congressman Dennis Kucinich in Washington DC after President Obama speaks to a joint session of Congress on September 9, 2009.


I'm on Capitol Hill Tonight For President Obama's Speech.

To be in the room.  To watch and listen as the President addresses one of the fundamental questions of our time cannot be underestimated.  Social security and Medicare are two of the most important programs in the United States.  And it was the Democrats who stepped up to fight for them.  As importantly, it was the Republicans who fought against them and have regularly tried to gut them ever since.

Keep checking back throughout the evening as I post photos, video and, reports, tweets and more.  This is going to get wild.


Congressman Van Hollen Joins the Program Tomorrow.

Congressman Chris Van Hollen of Maryland's 8th Congressional District joins the program tomorrow to talk about the upcoming session.  Many are talking about healthcare and exactly what the President, what Congress will do.

I'm particularly interested in Congressman Van Hollen's view as he is my Congressman.  And I want to know whether he will stand up for the publicn option and for healthcare reform.

Hope you can listen.
