Once again, I join regular “Foreign Matters” host George Templeton (@rodentpolitics) as a guest co-host on his weekly, foreign affairs podcast Monday night. We talk and, yes, sometimes rant about a wide variety of stories from around the world.

“Money Laundering Potluck” Episode
September 21, 2020

The topics we tackle:

      1. British PM Boris Johnson rejects two-week lockdown of pubs, bars, and restaurants after COVID-19 spike, opting for 10 p.m. closing time.
      2. The Chinese Communist Party announces a return of its iron grip on China’s business activity.
      3. Pres. Trump gives a nod to TikTok-Oracle-Walmart deal negotiations, via RedState’s Dennis Santiago.
      4. POTUS is awarded Kosovo’s highest honor for helping broker ‘economic normalization’ deal with Serbia.
      5. Documents leak which show North Korea, with China’s help, is under investigation for laundering nearly $175M via major, U.S. banks. In essence, the NoRK strikes back — in blatant disregard for U.S. sanctions reaching back to 2008.
