Descriptions- EXPAT FILES SHOW #1022, FRI, JAN 15 (01-15-21)

The latest Latin American Seminar was scheduled for January 8th thru 14th, 2021. However, just when things were calming down, the “usual suspect’ Cov-Idiot knuckleheads in government along with talking head scientists (in the pocket of big pharma) have once again decided to arbitrarily place heavier restrictions on airports and arbitrarily imposing new lockdown restrictions (i.e. Soviet style house arrests). The excuse this time being an imminent so-called 2nd wave. Stay tuned for the new rescheduled dates- (estimated to be in March or April) when US and Latin America airports start accepting the cheap (1 to 3 dollar) rapid 5 minute paper strip Cov-idiot test that is now used and widely accepted in Asia and Europe and projected to be in international use in March or April .   
#1- Are you thinking of DRIVING your vehicle down to Central America instead of flying?

In other words, by using WhatsApp one gives Fakebook and other malevolent tech giants permission to sell all of your texts, files search habits, GPS locations and more… to the highest bidder. The amazing thing is that not one in 10,000 Latinos even care they’ve lost all privacy and don’t care they are vulnerable to malicious hacks. The good news is that a few Whatsapp clone apps have popped up that specifically stress privacy and DO NOT store or sell any data. The best of the bunch being and       

#7- 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; and listen to the complete explanation outlined in “The Expat Files” show program aired on June 28, 2020.   
 #8- Do you want to get into the exploding Crypto-currency world but don’t feeling quite confident enough to dive in?
