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.

[RT America ] December 7th: Trump Destroys any Chance of Peace in One Fell Swoop

[RT America - Washington DC] November 16th: Jack Talks Menendez Mistrial


[RT America - Washington DC] November 3rd: Jack Talks Manhattan Attack

I appear on RT Washington DC with Ed Schultz on November 3rd. As we dig a little deeper into the background on the alleged attacker in Manhattan, people have begun to talk about his original country of origin, Uzbekistan. While it is important to follow all leads, it can sometimes be easy to jump to conclusions about his country, his religion or anything else. If it truly mater, then we could conclude after the Las Vegas shooting that we should be afraid of every middle aged white man with disposable income.  I hope that those jumping to conclusions about the Manhattan man t consider this point. 

This should be an interesting conversation. I hope you can watch.


[RT Washington] October 23rd: Jack Talks More Aggressive U.S. Ops Worldwide

I appear on RT America with Ed Schultz on October 23rd. Reports are coming out out CIA Paramilitary Ops ramping up in Afghanistan.  According the Director Pompeo, the Agency needs to be more aggressive and get more into the field. This highlights a potential changing role from more of the political one to a more military-esque one.  Combine this with the revelations of the recent deaths of four Green Beret soldiers in Niger who were working on the fringes and it highlights the willingness for the U.S. to reach further and further out.

It will be an interestin story to watch and discuss.  Hope you can watch.


[RTTV Washington DC] September 25th: Jack Talks Kurdish Independence Referendum

I appear on Russian TV Washington DC with Ed Schultz on September 25th.  The Iraqi Kurds are voting unofficially for independence from Iraq.  They want it. They've always wanted it. And yet, the Iraqi central government, if you can call it such, is opposed. So are the Turks, the Iranians, the Russians and the United States. Rarely have so many with different agendas stood in opposition.

And yet, the Kurds are right. They deserve independence. They've earned it. They were screwed by the European powers after WWI with the Treaty of Versailles and have frequently been decimated by the countries in which they have found themselves.

This will be an interesting conversation.


[RTTV Washington DC] September 19th: Jack Talks Trump's United Nations Speech

I appear on RTTV Washington on September 19th.  President Trump spoke before the United Nations General Assembly today. Sadly, this President who has been quite successful in front of his base but has never pivoted to actually being President of the United States. In a world that can be incredibly dangerous, this President had the opportunity to motivate this international body to come together to try to drive a settlement with the North Koreans. Instead, he threatened to annihilate the country along with potentially millions of people. 

I will discuss the North Korean issue and well as his statements regarding the Iran Nuclear deal. While they are somewhat connected, the potential of pulling out of this deal would result in simply no deal at all. If the Americans find a way to keep sanctions at the current levels, or even increase them, the potential could be catastrophic.  

This will be a complex but important conversation.
