JOHNNY’S 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 USA 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- How to find a good Latin American MD, Dentist or Healthcare Clinic even if you don’t speak Spanish:
There are hundreds of medical tourism websites in English on the web, some of them very glitzy. But just because they are glitzy and in English doesn’t mean they have 1st world standards or high quality…
 
#2- Getting out of Dodge the RIGHT and the WRONG way:
This is a heads up for Expat gonnabees and wannabees and others still on the fence:
 
#3- What if you absolutely can’t wait to get the hell out of Dodge but your partner or spouse doesn’t want to go?
It's a common dilemmaCan he or she be convinced or must you go south of the border alone and let him/her remain on the titanic?
 
#4- Are you being given the ultimatum to force vax or lose your job up in the states?
Today we have a boots-on-the-ground story that demonstrates how seriously idiotic this has become.   
 
#5- Do you want to get into the exploding Crypto-currency world but don’t feel quite confident enough to dive in?

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 USA 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- Fully half of all the Ambulances in  Latin American National Healthcare Systems are DOA, either broken down or in the junkyard:
Surprised? That’s what happens when idiot do-gooders and 1st world governments donate free stuff to 3rd world countries. Though in the Latin media you see corrupt bureaucrats and vehicle donors in smiley photo-op events all the time, its a very dumb idea with good intentions. Its like giving a 16 year old kid (who’s never changed a tire) a brand new car. It doesn't end well.
 
#2- Still on the fence about cryptos?
They’re catching on like wild fire in Latin America. So if you're coming down  you’d better start learning about them. Today we discuss that eventuality and the truth about old school guy financial gurus like Warren Buffet who are constantly dissing cryptos.
 
#3- Latin America Driver’s License update:
Governments in gringoized countries like Costa Rica and Ecuador are cracking down on driver’s licenses obtained in sketchy ways. But don't be fooled. It’s not about making the roadways safer. It’s about the money and the fact that gringos and expats can pay big fines, and the locals can’t (just check out the junks they drive). The moral of the story; regarding your permanent “Plan B”, try to skip the gringo tourist trail (except for occasional getaway vacations) or you'll just be a dollar sign to the locals.

#1- As crazy as it sounds, there is heavy pressure by the Big Brother Biden lunatics to vax everyone in the USA, .everyone except the over 200,000 illegals that sneak in to the states each month:
Duh? How does that compute?
 
#2- Ecuador kisses up to the USA by agreeing to accept 5000 Afghan refugees:
In actuality the number 5000 is wishful thinking, and won’t stop there. That’s what you get when a country is addicted to USA grants and impossibly indebted to IMF and World Bank loans and handouts. The question is, who’s going to pay for their relocation, housing, education and continual` maintenance?    
 
#3- The Islamist and Muslim culture clash in Latin America:
Muslims comprise only 1% of the Latin American population but what’s it all about at the street level and how are they faring? Should Gringos and Expats be concerned?
 
#4- The jealousy epidemic in Latin culture:
Is it toxic or just an extreme but manageable condition of Latin American romantic life?
 
#5- Do you want to get into the exploding Crypto-currency world but don’t feel quite confident enough to dive in?

#2- How a language dunce EF listener found a way to learn conversational Spanish in just 3 months:
Today we discuss his tips and his methods.
 
#3- Be careful who you choose as your Spanish tutor:
A discussion of how learning Spanish can be dangerous to your health.
 
#4- Beware of gold, silver and jewelry deals that look too good to be true:
How not to be caught in a typical tourist jewelry scam.

#1- What happens when Expats die in their new Latin Country?
Today you’ll get everything you need to know in advance, to help drastically reduce the chaos and uncertainty that will certainly ensue.
 
#2- The awful truth about those ubiquitous Mariachi bands:
I can personally only stomach them for about 2 minutes. But love em’ or hate em’ … they ain’t goin’ away.
 
#3- A new class of Gringo Expats is emerging:
A whole new group of expats are suddenly getting the hell out of dodge though not because of the usual reasons like Big Brother or Covidiot restrictions. They want out because they and/or their kids and loved ones have suffered repeat attacks and insults on social media. Yes, good people are realizing that simply being honest and un-PC on the net will likely get you cancelled, scorned and attacked by noxious social media morons and the toxic wokester mob. It’s a game you can’t win and why so many disgusted Gringos are now pushing the reset button and moving to Latin America.

#1- Update on the El Salvador Bitcoin Experiment- are you wondering how they’re doing and how it’s working?
Learn how by using the “Chivo” and “Strike” apps, Salvadorenos can switch back and forth between Bitcoin and the USD at no charge and with zero commission. And since the Strike app uses the BTC Lightning network, the transactions are instant and cost only a penny or two in commission (while standard BTC transaction fees can be a few bucks each). Yes, you can instantly buy really small stuff like a loaf of bread or a cup of coffee in El Salvador and today we explain how the using the Strike app has nicely streamlined that process.

Oh, and don’t be fooled by all the negative press you see about the El Salvador experiment in the lame street media. The usual suspect media outlets are bought and sold by the banksters and Big Brother who absolutely hate bitcoin and crypto. They realize it’s a serious threat to their very existence and will trash talk it at any opportunity.

#2- How I got scammed out of 2.5 million dollars by a sociopathic gringo poser and why I don’t whine or lose any sleep about it:

#4- Beware of clever Gringo Sociopaths and scammers here in Latin America- don’t let this happen to you!
Today we have a story of how a trusted employee embezzled both my Seminar lawyer and I out of 20+ grand.
The moral is: when down here in Latin America you must be on the lookout for expert Gringo and Gringa con men/women. They surely exist... I got sucked in myself. The story goes like this.... a few years back, a trusted lady Gringa IT employee named Jenn Byrd hijacked the expat seminar PayPal account, committing fraud, scamming my lawyer and I as well as sucking in other trusting expats with various lies and schemes. When caught red-handed, she immediately fled the country and went on the lamb. To cover her tracks and cause more confusion she set up a fake revenge website while leaving a long trail of unpaid debts and some very pissed-off and disappointed gringos and expats.

#1- Schmoozing your way through Lines, Ques, Roadblocks, Cops and Border stations:
Yes it’s possible to breeze through and its done all the time, but one must also have the proper uniform, costume and the huevos to pull it off.
