Hot off the presses!

Everything But the Kitchen Sink, the latest episode of Mr. Watchlist’s DesigNation, is all about today’s Executive Order and Treasury’s Directive. A massive E.O., to be sure, but I like how it put everything together in one piece. Hope you like it! Ratings and reviews always appreciated!

Mr. Watchlist is out of control…

Oh, no, that’s just the title of the new podcast episode (Out of Control)… Yep, it’s a run-down and commentary on Monday’s OFAC settlement with UniControl, Inc. Of course, I have some bones to pick with it – would I record something about which I totally agreed? Love to hear […]

Last Minute Reprieve

New episode of Mr, Watchlist’s DesigNation is now out – Last Minute Reprieve. It’s about the Chinese Military Companies General License issued late Friday, what it does, why it was issued and how OFAC might clean up the mess they made when they issued FAQ 864. Oh, and yes… that […]
