#1-How “Clueless Gringos” get gouged by Latin lawyers- their methods.
#2–True stories of Latin lawyers charging exorbitant Gringo prices.

#4-How and why it’s becoming more and more expensive for Expats in Panama and why its an unwise idea to open a bank account there.
#5-Selecting the right bank in Latin America: the do’s and dont's along with an explanation of the many hoops you need to jump through to open an account.
#5-How even honest and decent Latin lawyers can do an end-run around the many Latin rules that we Gringos take for granted (down here rules aren’t quite so etched in stone)
#5-Bribes and payoffs and grease the wheels in Latin America: we Gringos are not exempt from occasionally paying them and if we don't our paperwork will often remain at the bottom of the pile. We usually let our lawyer do the dirty-work.

Yes, Mister Hendra!
Christine Horner, M.D., FACS, is a nationally known surgeon, author and professional speaker and holds two board certifications: the National Board of Surgery and the National Board of Plastic Surgery. Dr. Horner was recognized as a leader in her field shortly after starting her plastic and reconstructive surgery practice because she successfully ran a national campaign to pass laws requiring insurance companies to pay for breast reconstruction following mastectomy. Her five-year crusade with the Breast Reconstruction Advocacy Project (BRA Project) led to the passage of an unprecedented federal law that was signed by President Bill Clinton in 1998, requiring insurance companies to pay for this specific surgical procedure. Horner is the award-winning author of, “Waking The Warrior Goddess: Dr. Christine Horner's Program to Protect Against and Fight Breast Cancer,” and her new book, “Radiant Health, Ageless Beauty.”
Eleanor LeCain discusses how women are breaking through in business with Staci Redmon, President and CEO of Strategy and Management Services, Inc. (SAMS), one of the fastest-growing companies in America.
Science fiction author and English prof David Gill talks about Star Wars, entropy, androids, and his new book of short stories In Time's Empire They Were All Slaves (Pravic SF Books).
Charles Ortel, a former Wall Street banker and investor whose digging into the financials of General Electric in 2007-2008 proved that the conglomerate had fraudulently overvalued its stock by hundreds of billions of dollars, has been detailing exclusively on Leid Stories major financial and accountability problems with the international philanthropic conglomerate operating as the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation.
Today Ortel, who has charged that the foundation is engaging in massive charity fraud, takes us into the Clintons’ hidden world, where money, politics and power intersect. His sweeping overview puts into perspective many unanswered questions about how the foundation has managed to evade scrutiny; how the Clintons leveraged political power and influence for financial gain; and their “special” relationship with President Barack Obama.
Bonnie Faulkner calls in after hearing Gary speak on censorship and told Gary the issue she just had on KPFA. Here is what she said:
Guns and Butter was again censored by the staff at KPFA. On Wednesday, May 18, 2016, we had planned to go on live for the current KPFA Fund Drive and offer Dissolving Illusions: Vaccination Past and Present by Dr. Suzanne Humphries and Roman Bystrianyk. However, on Tuesday we were notified by the Program Director at KPFA, Laura Prives, that our show would not air and instead be preempted. The following is the full text of her email:
The book Dissolving Illusions is not KPFA fund drive premium material.
We will have to preempt your show tomorrow.
KPFA follows basic ethical standards for choosing thank you gifts presented to listeners, that is, to tell the truth and do no harm. Thank you gifts must be vetted for authenticity. Offering thank you gifts that contain unverified claims, such as cancer cures or fully discredited theories, such as a link between autism and vaccinations, violate basic ethical standards. Thank you gifts offering cures for life-threatening diseases or those validating unsubstantiated fears on controversial topics will undoubtedly be popular and are likely to bring in a large amount of donations. This is all the more reason to avoid "cashing in" and to hold to ethical standards.
Debates and discussions on this type of information outside of fund drives are certainly justifiable in order to present listeners with a full scope of a topic. But when KPFA offers books, CDs and DVDs during fund drive there is an implied endorsement of the information in that gift. For the same reason KPFA does not offer thank you gifts of items by political candidates during election season. The thank you gift implies an endorsement of the candidate. As a trusted media outlet KPFA has a responsibility to offer thank you gifts that are as credible and unbiased as is its daily reporting and public affairs broadcasting.
Thanks for your cooperation,
