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.

[Press TV Tehran] August 3rd: Jack Talks North Korean Hydrogen Bomb

I appear on Press TV Iran on August 3rd. The North Koreans just tested another nuclear bomb and not just any nuclear bomb, a hydrogen bomb.  They have never tested anything this powerful. Further, they stated they have the technology to place a nuclear device on a missile. If this is the case, the ramifications could truly be catastrophic.

The Americans are responding and absolutely threatening the North Koreans and the United Nations Security Counsel is meeting tomorrow to talk about possible options. One possibility the Americans are discussing is sanctions where they stop trading with anybody who trades with the North Koreans. This is designed to hit one and only one country really, the Chinese. This was serious before but each day, the world continues to step a little closer to something truly and honestly deadly.

While this may be hard to find in the west, if you are in Iran or the Middle East, I hope you cam watch.


[Press TV Tehran] August 22nd: Jack Talks Trump's Phoenix Rally

I appear on Press TV Iran on August 22nd. After the issue of race came front and center as a result of Charlottesville and with Donald Trump's really strange and frankly, racists, responses, he made a conscious decision to have a political, campaign style rally in Phoenix.  The Mayor of Phoenix and both U.S. Senators from Arizona asked him to cancel in light of the incendiary nature of race issues in the country and the likelihood that Trump's statements would simply exacerbate the issues.

In the event, one might think that this isn't being watched closely around the world, but they would be wrong.  I appear on Press TV out of Tehran, Iran to discuss internal politics in the states, the nature of race relations and the Donald Trump presidency.  This is going to be an interesting conversation.

Not sure how you could listen but if so, great.


[Iranian Press TV Intl.] Tuesday, November 8th: Jack Talks the Elections and International Anxiety

I appear on Iranian Press TV Newsroom today. No long before writing this post, I was in line at my local polling place to fulfill my civic duty and vote for everybody from President of the United States to dogcatcher. Ok, that's not true, but you get the picture. I was thinking about just how brutal this election was and just how nervous so many people are. This is equally true for people around the world.

As I was thinking this, my phone rang from Iran asking me to appear on Press TV Newsroom to discuss the elections and how things have played out. This should be interesting because in many ways, I am a part of this story, which is unusual. I have lived through years of this election cycle just like everybody else. Further, I feel the exhaustion and the angst. I want to talk about that.  However, I'm sure this interview will be unique because it frequently comes from a perspective that is just different. I love that.

Hope you can catch it.  Not even sure if it appears in the States.  Probably not.
