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.

[Voice of American Intl. Edition] October 3rd: Jack Talks the Gun Control Debate.

I appear on Voice of America International Edition on October 3rd. Okay, this promises to be a hot topic. With 59 dead and more than 500 injured in Law Vegas, this is the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. And without question, one of the reasons there are as many dead as there are is because of the kinds of weapons used and technology legally available that made the shooter capable of pumping large number of rounds into a massive group of people.

As I look at this issue, one conlcusion is clear.  Little to nothing will change. After the shooting, gun sales increased, again. After every mass shooting, gun sales increase and nothing is done. One side loses it while the other sides acts like its not as problem.  Is there an answer?

This is going to be interesting.

[Voice of America Intl] July 11th: Jack Talks Jr, Manafort and Kushner Meeting with Russian Operative

I appear on Voice of America International Edition. This is an extraordinary development. From the beginning, the Trump Administration has claimed they had no contact with the Russians and that was fake news. The problem, of course, is that they have had extraordinary contact with the Russians. The latest revelation is pretty astounding in itself but consider it in context of all of the previous pieces of information and it is potentially quite explosive.

According to the New York Times and then reiterated by Jr. himself after forced into a corner, Jr. thought he was dealing with a Russian government contact who had dirt on Hillary Clinton. Of course, there is a real question about why he didn't go directly to the FBI.  He didn't. Instead, his response was to say, "seems we have some time and if its what you say, I love it especially later in the summer."  This is extraordinary as it feels like collusion. Further, the Russians then released a ton of information through Wikileaks "later in the summer."  Coincidence?  Hell of a coincidence.

One last point, some have attempted to argue that Jr. is not a White House official in any sense.  Of course, that ignores that possibility that his father was made aware of the situation.  That has yet to be determined. However, what we do know if that Jr. Paul Manafort, the Director of Donald Trump's Presidential campaign, and Donald Trump's senior advisor and dson-in-law Jared Kushner were all present for a meeting  with this Russian lawyer. 

Robert Mueller, Special Counsel investigating the Trump/Russia connections, just announced they will be looking into the emails of Jr. as part of their broader investigaiton.

Yeah, this story has legs.

[Voice of America Intl. Edition] May 9th: Jack Talks Trump's Firing of FBI Director

I appear on Voice of America International on May 9th. This is an incredible story.  President Trump just fired FBI Director James Comey.  Trump claims it was because of his handling of Hilliary Clinton's email account during the election.  However, based upon the praise Trump heaped on him back in October, this makes no sense whatsoever.  The only other logical answer in Russia.  Is this Archibald Cox all over again?  This story is developing and promises to have legs.  Wow.

Hope you can catch it.

[Voice of America Intl. Edition] March 31: Jack Talks Latest on Trump/Russia Investigation

I appear on Voice of America International Edition on March 31st.  There are multiple investigations going on as we speak involving the Trump Administration and their alleged connections with the Russians.  We know that the Russians tried to impact the Presidential election.  That's not the question.  The entire U.S. Intelligence establishment has concluded that that is the case.  The issue is whether the Trump Administration conspired with the Russians to make that happen.  The sort of enemy of my enemy is my friend concept.  We will discuss the latest. 

With so much going on in both the House and Senate Intelligence Committees as well as the FBI, there is going to be a lot to talk about including Burr, Nunez, Flynn, Kuchner and more.  Hope you can catch it.
