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.

[MSNBC's AmJoy] July 8th: Jack Talks Trump and the World

I appear on MSNBC's AmJoy this morning with Jonathan Capehart.  Donald Trump just finished his trip to Europe to attend the G20 DSummit and after a speech in Poland.  It was an extraordinary trip in that it highlighted one fundamental  premise: going it alone in a globalised society is a guarantee for failure.  Sadly, Mr. Trump seems completely incapable of seeing it.  Further, he had a chance to sit down with Russians Vladimir Putin and apparently gave him a pass.  Truly extraordinary considering the circusmtances.

I will talk about these issues, North Korea, and what comes next.  This is always a lot of fun and stretches me to think on my feet.

[AM 950 Minneapolis] July 7th: Jack Talks G20 Summit

I appear on the Mike McIntee Show today on AM 950. President Trump is in Hamburg as we speak and while everybody is talking about his big meeting with Russian President Putin, there are a lot of other really important issues that need to be discussed. The group should be talking about Syria, North Korea, Climate Change and Trade.  In fact, The E.U. and Japan just signed a freetrade agreement. While this isn't getting much play, it should be. It establishese the largest freetrade agreement in the world. It is larger than U.S. trade and the Americans were essentially excluded.  This is really due to President Trump's continuing "go it alone, we will dictate all terms" approach.  It is going to be an interesting summit and may help educate the Americans that just because you are the United States, that doesn't mean that we can't collectively work around you and, to some degree, ignore you.  

Getting interesting.
