Newly cemented “Pussy” of Panama changes the low hanging fruit in Cabinet. NOT the real problems.

OP ED: James “JB” Bryson- Ol’ Nito continued his empty rants of transparency and change, by firing the Minister of Health as a result of Covid. Another huge cop out on promises of change. This was a patsy move. The REAL changes on his cabinet are the slick US college …

PNO Wildlife Rant: South African proposal is short sighted and will send them all to Hell!!

OP ED: James “JB” Bryson– I have forever been against the brain dead argument that sponsored BIG GAME and ENDANGERED SPECIES hunting as a means of conservation was utter BULLSHIT. It’s counter intuitive white elitist nonsense to justify pampered pussies to shoot and kill planter supporting food chain wildlife for …

Hurts to report that we have lost a second friend to the COVID-19 back in states.

OP ED: James “JB” Bryson Every now and again when I can find a moment, PNO has been able to post upon some things during these unprecedented times. Like the “Young Scumbags” that are ruining the Republic right under the nose of Nito, who has in an an incredibly short …

PNO still trying to stay “isolated”. Hoping for country to re-open.

by James “JB” Bryson As we all try to diligently navigate these strange and unprecedented times, I like I am sure the rest of you are hoping we are close to getting back to our families. The Ex-Pat as of life is great in many ways. Quality of life. Economic …

PNO continues to promote protection for Darien. These trees should be TOURISM and NOT LOGGING.

GREEN GIANTS could be a boon for ECO-TOURISM. https://www.prensa.com/impresa/vivir/los-gigantes-verdes-del-darien/ In the deep Darien are what are arguably the oldest and largest trees in the country, “green giants” embedded in the jungle, which have begun to be studied by a team of scientists from the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (Stri) .

EX-PATS in the American Market. “Hold onto your socks!!!”

OP ED: James “JB” Bryson I think many people that are retired or approaching it, would gladly take a week in bed with the flu as opposed to seeing what is occurring every day in their 401K or personal brokerage accounts. Wall Street continues to take a brutal beating as …

Hoping all PNO couples had a pleasant Valentine’s weekend.

OP ED: James “JB” Bryson Sorry for the sporadic posting lately, but much has been going on behind the green Oz curtain over here. Not only are we following some corruption cases pretty closely, but we are trying to organize a fundraising function for WOUNDED WARRIOR in Old Town over …

Nito “triples down” on the actions of his administration.

https://www.prensa.com/politica/el-presidente-laurentino-cortizo-evalua-hoy-a-su-equipo-de-trabajo/ OP ED: James “JB” Bryson: My 3rd post on this, so obviously I am fascinated by the quotes coming from Cortizo. He’s backing himself into a corner and drawing a line in the sand with his insistence that all the bullshit of the past Political officials, Ministers, Comptrollers, Assembly …

Indigenous of Panama: Native inhabitants fall victim to religious “Bubba Miseh”

OP ED: James “JB” Bryson- As my readers know, I am not a member of the Jewish faith, yet my granddaughter is being raised between two faiths, as her father is Jewish. That is how I first learned of the Yiddish term of Slavic origin above. “Bubba Miseh”, as I …

Apparent thief in lawless Bocas. Help me “OUT” this piece of SHIT.

World should be WOKE to tragedy in Australia. Hoping all can help.

United States UPDATE: Recent Trump statement implies de-escalation.

OP ED: James “JB” Bryson- If some of the military Ex-Pats over here have not stayed in immediate attention, the 12 land based missiles that hit US appropriated military installations in Iraq resulted in ZERO casualties. This is being universally viewed as a coordinated saving of face in light of …

Swedish girl compelled to promote climate measures is chastised by my President. #asshole

OP ED: James “JB” Bryson- I find it so crazy that “any” leader, can find “any” issue with what this young lady has done to promote conversation over climate change. When most “tweens” are wondering what is happening with the Jonas Brothers or the newest PlayStation game, this one is …

A possible better option than Paper Straws to replace Plastic.

I hope all can feel the joy I have in this. Better than picking Super Bowl winner.

This was fairly hidden from Ex-Pats. At least this one….

Just a little tidbit for PNO followers, as “privacy” is ruling the day.

Varela claims Martinelli behind leaks……….NO SHIT you filthy Judas!! Opus Dei mistress having MFer.

Porcell revealed as FRAUD. Acted as a personal shield for Varela with ODEBRECHT.

https://www.laestrella.com.pa/nacional/191106/191107-consejos-recibia-varela-ministerio- The way in which the then President Juan Carlos Varela and the current Attorney General of the Nation, Kenya Porcell , were inexplicable. It extended beyond a parallel hand of justice, as this newspaper revealed in a series of reports detailing the Executive’s interference in criminal cases investigated by the Public Ministry . It was more …
