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.

More of the U.S. Intelligence and Defense Establishment Dismantled.

President Trump just forced out Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats. It has been a tumultuous relationship in which they have disagreed strong on Russia, Iran, North Korea and Saudi Arabia among other issues. Trump, above all likes loyalists and yes men who tell him what he wants to here. Doubt me?


Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, Retired Marine General, Former Head of the U.S. Central Command. Gone

Chief of Staff John Kelly, Retired Marine General and Former Secretary of Homeland Security and Head of Southern Command. Gone.

National Security Advisor, Retired Lt. General HR McMaster, Silver star, 2 bronze stars. Gone

National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, Retired Army Lt. General, Former Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency. Gone.


The first two were gone because they disagreed. The other was convicted of crimes. Either way, they speak for themselves. The President decided he knew better. Um, yeah . . .
