There is Fear that Trump's Trade War May Catch Fire. 

Free trade and let the market take its course. These are a baseline Republican arguments. Its bedrock in many ways. You stray from this and you stray from the foundation of the party. And yet, this is exactly what Donald Trump is doing. He has placed tariffs on $50B from the China, who have responded in kind, on the Mexicans, the Canadians, the European Union and more.  And these other countries and preparing to bight back. If they link arms and bite in a collective way, the world could have an impact.  Republicans are concerned but have sat pretty quietly despite that whole bedrock thing I was talking about. And of course, U.S. farmers, specifically pork and soybean farmers to name a few, are getting completely decimated.

Now, the President is arguiing to give aid to those decimated farmers. The problem, of course, is that this flies directly in the face of that whole freemarket thing that is quintescentially Republican. You aren't supposed to choose winners and losers and manipulate the market. However, this is exactly what Trump is doing.  

Everyday, Republicans are becoming more and more nervous.  Everyday, we are a little closer to midterm elections and GOP leaders and hearing from the party, and gulping and hoping.

I will appear on WKBK in New Hampshire with my buddy Dan Mitchell to discuss.

[Press TV Iran] June 15th: Judge Orders Mueller to Prison

I appear on Press TV Iran on June 15th.  Paul Manafort is in a world of trouble. He has been charged with a whole series of things that could put him in prison for life. Further, a Judge has just ordered him back into custody for additional obstruction and tampering with witness charges.  This despite already posting $10 million in bail.  The real question of course is what comes next.  His right hand man, a former Russian intelligence operative was also charges and there are multiple people who have already agreed to cooperate to help the prosecution.  As I said, this is getting ugly for Mr. Manafort.

This will be interesting.

[WKBK New Hampshire] November 1st: Jack Talks Latest Terrorist Incident 

I appear on WKBK New Hampshire with my old friend Dan Mitchell. This was an interesting conversation because rather than talk about a lot of hypotheticals and things we simply didn't have the answer to, I talk about about Uzbekistan and history in the former Southern Republics of the Soviet Union. Considering how many of the Muslim communities have been targeted in some of these countries in the past and also their general lack of opportunities, some of these areas have perfect environments for creating terrorists.  

This is a smart show that digs deeper into complex issues and I always enjoy it.
