Descriptions- EXPAT FILES SHOW #968 SUN, JUNE 28 (06-28-2020):
 
ATTENTION EVERYONE!!! MY AUGUST 2020 “EXPAT INSIDER” SEMINAR HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO JANUARY 2021
My latest “Expat Insider” Seminar was to have launched on Friday, August 21, 2020. It has been postponed due to ever changing, inconsistent rules and norms regarding the openings and closing of US and Latin American airports. The new seminar dates will be January 8th thru 24th, 2021. By then things should have calmed considerably. For info and signup details go to www.ExpatPlanB.com. Remember: attending the seminar and connecting with my long-term expat network is the best, most sure-fire way, to enhance your own essential expat network. Come on down in January and turbocharge your Plan B!
 
#1- Airports, travel, covid, and the second wave(?) update:
The problem is, when everyone’s an expert, false news and hypocrisy rule the day
 
#2- Gettin’ da Hell Outta Dodge is becoming VERY popular:
What started as a slow trickle (before Corona), is now becoming an unstoppable movement
 
#3- How to get a 100% legal (and well respected) 2nd Passport online and in just 60 days!
Now for the real silver lining in the age of Corona. Latin American and Caribbean Island tourism is dead, and tax revenues have dried up. Governments are broke and as a result a small few have reacted by offering passport by investment programs. Today we discuss one of the most amazing fast track passport programs. I have personally vetted this. It’s all true and legit. Even better, you can do the complete application online without wasting time and repeatedly flying back and forth to the country! For details, send an email to: theexpatfiles@gtmail.com           
 
#4- So you want to get into Crypto currency but don’t feeling confident enough to get in?

#1- Why are more US troops arriving in Colombia?
I bet you didn’t even know we had them there. And of course the bureau-rats give the same tired reason, “we must continue to fight the Drug War“. WTF! What a false and stupid narrative? Are we that stupid? Well we must be since they keep getting away with it…

#2- A list of Latin Countries I DO NOT RECOMMEND for a Plan B destination (and the reasons why):

#3- What Stateside folks really think of long term EXPATS in Latin America:
Some people view them as lucky stiffs who’ve somehow won a kind of lottery while others see them as having had a premature vision, meaning they just were a bit smarter and more astute than the next guy. So did they land in their piece of paradise by luck or by skill and forward thinking?
 
#4- A European Expat speaks out:
What about having a “Plan B” in Europe? Today we have another “boots on the ground” story that will certainly surprise and amuse you.

#1- The full dope on how to get practically any Latin Country driver’s license on the grey market, whether you qualify or not:
The advantages and pitfalls of getting and flashing a quasi-legal Driver’s License. Sure, most of the grey market DL’s look and feel perfectly legit, but there is a nagging question; are they truly 100% registered in the local govt. transit system and will they pass police muster? Its today’s first very un-PC “boots on the ground” story.  
 
#2- Protesting for George Floyd in Latin America:
Yes, police brutality and GF protest groups are popping up in many Latin big cities. Meanwhile the average Latino protester has no idea who the guy is, can’t spell his name and have no idea what a Minneapolis or Minnesota is, nor do they how to find it on the map. So then, who is organizing these events and how do the locals get sucked into the long distance madness when the've got cop problems right in their own backyards? You’ll be surprised at the answers (or maybe not)       
 
#3- Tourist are used to chiding Latin America for the ubiquitous presence of Barbed Wire and Razor Wire:
Meanwhile, as stateside chaos rules, US companies and individuals are suddenly ordering unprecedented truckloads of the stuff. Who should we be chiding now?
 
#4- 1001 more reasons to Get The Hell Out Of Dodge:
As if you needed more…  

#5- Your Solar Panel and Solar Energy installation questions answered:

#1- What Latinos South of the Border think of USA police brutality, riots, looting and the general chaos:
Man, will you’ll be surprised!
 
#2- How is it possible that hundreds of rich, sociopathic, Latino felons and Narco kingpins, along with convicted, corrupt Latin Politicians can own and inhabit luxury condos and houses in the swankest areas of Miami, USA?
We’re talking convicted felons wanted in in their own countries who would be instantly jailed if they went back, yet the US State Department and Immigration idiots allow these parasites to continue to live like royalty in Miami. Have you had enough of it yet? Time to get out of Dodge!
 
 #3- It’s depressing to know that US police academies don’t want high IQ applicants:
They prefer average IQ applicants. Can you guess why?
 
#4- You need a ‘Plan B”, but scratch Argentina:
Unless of course you can live with 50% annual inflation AND mandatory vaccines for everyone. Yes vaccination is the law now, or no driver’s license, passport, air travel or schooling for the kids!

#5- Expat Eddie reveals some of the tricks he uses to fool the cops at police road blocks.

#3- Latinos wonder: WTF happened to my personal space?

#4- “Boots on the Ground” Corona Virus Lockdown Stories:

#5- The malignant effects of NGO’s:
There are thousands of NGO’s in Latin America (and even more in China). At first glance, these Non- Governmental Organizations seem good and benevolent, since they are usually started by do-gooders with noble purposes. But like all tiny groups that grow into hierarchical bureaucracies, they nearly always become corrupt, self-serving and manipulative.
