This was revealed by political commentator Ann Vandersteel during the Sept. 26 episode of her Brighteon.TV program "Right Now with Ann Vandersteel." The host recently visited the former site of Fort Clayton near the former Panama Canal Zone, once a heavy base of operations for the United States.
During her visit, Vandersteel found out that the WEF had moved into the area. She took a picture of the WEF flag flying side-by-side with the Panamanian flag.
"I want you to take a good hard look right now, America. These flags you see? That's right, the World Economic Forum flag flying overhead of the old SOUTHCOM (U.S. Southern Command) base, which was Fort Clayton in Panama. That's right, next to the Panamanian flag," she said.
"The U.S. government has abandoned Panama, which is the American crown jewel of Latin America. The United States military compounds are either totally rundown, or worse occupied by, as I said, globalist psychopaths."

"We the Americans built the canal and we – our government, I should say – gave it away," she added. "Panamanians love Americans, and they're asking: 'Where are the Americans?' So just remember that the old SOUTHCOM base known as Fort Clayton today flies the World Economic Forum flag on top of it."
The revelation that the WEF is taking over parts of Panama comes as reports indicate that the number of South American migrants arriving in Panama through the near-inhospitable environments of the Darien Gap on their journey to the U.S. will surpass the 400,000 mark before October.
These figures come from Panama's National Migration Service, which reported that as of 6 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 27, 399,606 South American migrants had entered the country through the Darien Gap.
The crisis for Panama has especially worsened in September, with the daily number of migrants pouring in through the jungles of the Darien Gap exceeding 2,000 people.
The unprecedented number of migrants crossing through Panama beat the record of 248,000 migrants set last year and 2021's similarly record-breaking number of 133,000.
Of the 400,000 migrants that have already crossed Panama's southern border this year, over 324,000 were from South America, including 252,000 Venezuelans, nearly 48,000 Ecuadorians and more than 13,000 Colombians. Nearly 40,000 migrants are from the Caribbean, around 28,000 are Asians and a little under 8,000 are Africans.
Panamanian officials warn that, despite the slew of new measures the government has implemented in an attempt to curb record migration, the number of migrants and so-called asylum seekers that could enter the country through the Darien Gap could reach more than half a million before the year ends.
