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.

[AM 950 Minneapolis] October 9th: Jack Talks Trump Instability

I appear on AM950 with Matt McNeil on October 9th.  There is an interesting spat going on inside the Beltway that is getting really really strange. This one is between President Trump and Republican Senator Bob Corker, the Senate Chairman of the powerful Foreign Relations Committee.  What makes this particularly crazy is that the President is going after Corker and Corker refused to back down. In fact, Corker's argument is that the President needs adult supervision. What makes this interesting is that multiple reports have talked about many in the White House trying to protect Trump from . . . you guessed it Trump.  Extraordinary.

The stone cold silence inside the Beltway from other Republicans is equally amazing. Corker is popular, well respected and has a lot of friends. This puts them in a very interesting place. The real question I have been asking for months is when the GOP will decide that being allied to the President is actually costing them votes and that they would shift.  While this may not be the time, it is certainly another stick on the fire.

his should be an interesting conversation.
