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.

The Mueller Report (Redacted) is Released and Nobody is Really Happy

The Mueller report was released inside the Beltway and nobody is really happy.  AG Barr has tried to spin it in a way that seems uttlerly shocking. He is not the President's private attorney but rather the Attorney for the U.S. However, he certainly isn't acting like it. His conclusions do not seem to reflect the report.  This is an objective fact. Also, the language he is using parrots the President's language even though "collusion" is not what this case was ever about nor is even a term of law.  Further, the report specifically rejects the usage.  Strange.  

The two issued the Report looks at are Conspiracy and Obstruction.  The conspiracy piece seems pretty clean, meaning that Mueller simply didn't find enough to go after Trump.  The obstruction piece actually is much much different. In that case, the Report says it can't exonerate the President and seems to leave it in the hands of Congress. Barr, on the other hand, tries to exonerate Trump on this issue.

There will be a fight.  I appear on VOA to discuss. 


Will The Country Ever See an Un-redacted Mueller Report?

Attorney General Barr released a four page summary of the 400 page Mueller Report.  Further, Barr decided there was insufficient grounds for an obstruction charge against President Trump.  As a result, Trump claimed complete vindication.  The Democrats don't seem to agree.  

On April 18, Barr is scheduled to release a redacted version of the report.  He was heavily pressured by the Dems to do so who have already threatened extensive subpoenas to get a complete version of the report without redactions.  Barr claims redactions for grand jury info, classified info, material about ongoing info and material affecting peripheral third parties.  We will see. . . 

I appear on Voice of America, International Edition to talk about what it means.  Should get interesting.

While California is facing a financial crisis not seen for many years, how serious is it? Some experts are suggesting that while the economy may be a "train wreck", the state may also present a golden opportunity for the future. Jack with host Top Story on Monday night and open up the phones for listeners. Are you optmiistic? Or are you packing your bags and getting out of Dodge? Or Escondido? Or El Cajon? Or El Centro?

Jack Appears on KOGO in San Diego.

Jack hosts Top Story on AM 600 KOGO tonight where he opens up the phones and discusses California's unemployment increase to 9.3%. It is significantly worse than the national average and the worst in California in 15 years. What can be done to address it? Is it a government role? A private role? A combination?
