Change the name, doesn’t change the game!! Watch your back at Red Frog. Are you safe???

Well I was debating and debating with myself whether I would ever write about the Bocas del Toro debacle that is Red Frog Beach.   After spending the last 8 days in Bocas del Toro I’ve made some promises and can’t hold back any longer.   The promise I made myself and …

How much death truly associated to the completion of the WORLD CUP???

For those that are soccer fans (like me), there is an interesting documentary on NETFLIX about the awarding of the World Cop of 2022 to QATAR. Indeed it was an odd and curious choice. Much ado of fraud and kickbacks started the investigations into FIFA.  Now other groups are investigating …

LMFAO. What is the lesson to be learned here? ASSHOLE of MONTH is back.

I’m sorry if I have to laugh at someone else’s misfortune,,,,,,but for the love of God, this tactic of trying to be famous for nothing needs to end. With Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and now Tik Tok, an entire billion dollar enterprise that produces literally NOTHING has been born. They are …

“Rich Man-Poor Man” the REVERSE edition. CARRIZO exposed! Panama is tired of the BS.

I have covered many times in the past and through the years, what I like to call the “PANAMA WAY”. As a very young republic, and one that truly did not have independence until the canal was fully handed over, PANAMA has developed it’s own way of going along. With …

Bocas de Toro offers HUGE benefits under right leadership. HIDDEN diamond of Panama.

There is something amiss is Bocas del Toro. I call them my “Bocas Brigade”. Being run by in my opinion opportunistic fraudsters that move the goalposts, rife with crime, a dirty shithole, and an airport that is embarrassing. But wrapped around all this shit is some of the most beautiful …

Never TOO early. PNO push for MARTINELII. ALL THE WAY 100%

I have reasons why I love this guy. He faces the music. (Carrizo, Varela, Porcell,,,,,,where are you?)

The tentacles of ODEBRECHT are wrapped around the entire Republic of Panama, and yet solely created by the ingoing and outgoing administrations, they all want to place it on RICARDO MARTINELLI. I am an OPEN- RM Supporter- in that ONE can’t be blamed for the cookie jar that a MILIION …

The Boys are Back in Town: RED FROG BEACH seeks to raise $37 MILLION in CRYPTOCURRENCY. LOL

Yes, indeed. Those massive piles of duplicitous bastards are back at it in good ol’ BOCAS DEL TORO.  Besides a glitzy website, RED FROG BEACH is nothing more than a massive pile of dogshit and debt. Love your addresses to the troops though, you still have a shitload of “Heaven’s …

Martinelli optimistic sons to be home by beginning of 2023

Just your everyday grocery run under this Administation.

It’s times like these when you are able to see the WEAK come to light. As in CORTIZO and CARRIZO. And even more reason why the RE-ELECTION of RICARDO MARTINELLI will be one of the biggest “LEGAL” runaway victorioes since REAGAN/MONDALE.  MARTINELLI is a master politician in what a politician …
