Monday, Nov. 17: In advance of the much-anticipated grand jury decision about the Michael Brown shooting death in Ferguson, Mo., I asked an important question about the Metropolitan St. Louis Police Department’s apparent use of illegal surveillance equipment known. In addition, I shared a John Oliver video about I think all Americans should watch. Adding to the mix, I shared a book excerpt from my first crime-fiction thriller, The National Bet, and ended the day by sharing details of letters written by Soldiers in support of a wrongly-convicted fellow Green Beret.
Tuesday, Nov. 18: I revealed details of how the storyline in The National Bet draws from real-world issues, including some directly ties to the mainstream news media’s reporting — or lack thereof — on important issues of the day.
Wednesday, Nov. 19: I raised a favorite subject with ties to my second nonfiction book, The Clapper Memo. Look for it under the headline, Ukrainians Barking Up Wrong Tree With Polygraph. I shared stunning news about a man believed innocent, who could leave prison next week after spending 36 years behind bars. And I shared a blockbuster item under this headline: Retired Defense Intelligence Agency Investigator Accuses DoD Polygraph Veteran of Violating Espionage Act of 1917.
Thursday, Nov. 20: In advance of President Barack Obama’s much-anticipated announcement about an executive order on immigration, I shared my opinion that Border Security Trumps Immigration Reform. Later in the day, I predicted NBC Dateline Will Air Polygraph Propaganda during a segment to be broadcast Friday evening.
Friday, Nov. 21: After sharing news about DIA’s Throwback Thursday piece spotlighting now-Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr., I did some more writing and spent a little time plotting my one-man takeover of the book publishing industry.
Saturday, Nov. 22: TBD.
FYI ABOUT LAST WEEK’S FYI: The documentary film crew from Los Angeles will be coming to the St. Louis area to interview me for two to three days during the second week of January — right after I return from a speaking engagement in Orlando. Though I still can’t divulge details about the people behind the project, I can tell you they’re interested in the subject matter of my book, The Clapper Memo. As an aside, I can tell you my three sons, who range in age from 17 to 24, believe my appearance in this documentary will increase my “cool factor” exponentially among those in the young adult/under-30 crowd.by
