JOHNNY’S JANUARY 2021 LATIN AMERICAN “EXPAT INSIDER” SEMINAR HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO BAD SCIENCE AND US GOVT STUPIDITY:
The latest Latin American Seminar was scheduled for January 8th thru 14th, 2021. However, since the “usual suspect’ Cov-Idiot knuckleheads in government along with talking head scientists (in the pocket of big pharma) arbitrarily place restrictions at airports and impose new lockdowns (i.e. Soviet style house arrests), please stay tuned for the new rescheduled dates (estimated to be in late Summer). That will happen when US and Latin America airports drop the Cov-idiot test requirements, scheduled to be when so-called "Herd Immunity" has been achieved. We’re on it and will keep you posted…    

 

#1- Finally, some Good News out of Costa Rica:
But not nearly enough to change my mind about never living there again. I lived there for nearly 3 years and it was no paradise and unfortunately NOT a good Plan B destination.   

#2- Passports for sale –Instant Passports Revisited

#3- Those Illegal Immigration Stories you’ll NEVER hear in the lame-street news:

#4- An updated report from the Cov-idiot trenches

#5- What Gringos and Expats need to know about the availability of Counterfeit Cov-idiot cards and Passports:

#6- A verified student’s “boots on the ground” evaluation of Captain Mango’s crypto course for beginners:

#7- More and more Gringos and Expats are asking the following trillion dollar question:
“Why should I have to pay taxes at all when the US just keeps printing trillions in funny money? Somebody please explain.”   
#8- Get a 100% legal (and well respected) 2nd Country Passport online and in just 60 days!
The Corona virus has killed Latin American and Caribbean Island tourism so tax revenues have dried up. Governments are broke and a small few have reacted by offering passport by investment programs. I have personally vetted the best legit one. Amazingly, you can apply online without wasting time or repeatedly flying back and forth to the country. That’s a first! For details email; f and listen to the complete explanation outlined in “The Expat Files” show program aired on June 28, 2020.        

 

#9- Do you want to get into the exploding Crypto-currency world but don’t feeling quite confident enough to dive in?
Our own Captain Mango has developed a unique one-on-one Crypto consulting and training service (he’s been deep into crypto since 2013). To get started, email him at:

#10- Be sure to pick up my newly updated, "LATIN AMERICAN HEALTHCARE REPORT":
The new edition for 2021 (and beyond) is available now, including the latest "Stem Cell Clinic" info and data and my top picks for the best treatment centers for expats and gringos. Just go to www.ExpatPlanB.com and click on the "Latin American Healthcare Report”.

#4- BITCOIN and Cryptocurrency tips for confused and/or late-to-the party Gringos and Expats:

#5- A Gringo’s Guide to Deciphering your Spanish language Latin American electric utility bill:

#6- The truth about self-sufficient Latinos versus whiny, sensitive, woke 1st world weenies:
I you live in Latin America, you’ll soon realize that there is no Latino version of woke, gender fluid, micro aggression, cancel culture wimps. Its reason #2546 why living in Latin America is a great “PLAN B”. Though the 1st world cancel culture may have gone completely nuts, that cultural contagion has not infected normal life Latin America though it’s making inroads on the gringo the tourist trail… (duh! that figures)

#4- “Saint” Joe Biden- the Patron Saint of Illegal immigrants:
