Cristina Fernandez recommended to ease intensity and will cut short visit to Asia

Argentine president Cristina Fernandez has been recommended by her medical team to ease the ‘intensity’ of her activities and thus will leave Vietnam out of a tour which is planned for next month and includes the Arab Emirates and Indonesia.

The Argentine president suffers from chronic arterial hypotension

According to the Presidential Medical Unit the head of state was strongly recommended to lower the intensity and extension of the coming overseas trip to Asia, which is planned for January 14/19. This would be the third time in two months that the Argentine leader has to change her agenda.

Last November she was forced to cancel her attendance to the XXII Ibero-American summit held in Cadiz, Spain and towards the end of the month the Argentine president was absent from the Unasur summit, in Lima, Peru.

The mid January trip includes a delegation of 200 business people headed by the controversial Domestic Trade Secretary Guillermo Moreno and has the purpose of opening new markets and attracting investments to Argentina.  

Cristina Fernandez is known to suffer from “chronic arterial hypotension” which manifests in fainting or blackouts and forces her to remain resting undisturbed usually for a couple of days.

This year that is coming to an end started particularly complicated for Cristina Fernandez since in January she underwent surgery in the thyroid glands which contrary to previous diagnosis the nodules proved to be benign.

In May on a return from a trip to Angola the Argentine president had the flu and tonsillitis. In August she had to suspend a trip to the north of the country because of her chronic hypotension. Two months later a similar diagnosis kept her resting in the presidential palace at Olivos.

January 14-19, Moyano and Armed Forces - great opportunity to help the citizens of Argentina

a person who threatens her country with inflation, press censorship, money devaluation, travel complications, fiscal clamps, non-payment of debts, pension stealing to save her own good life, political tricks to become elected a third time, keep the country as paria in the civilized world, non acceptance of international sentences, cannot expect to be felt pitiful because of her illness.
Although not knowing what may come after her she should quit before she is taken up by HIM wherever HE may be.

Maybe FIG and the FCO (if they haven't already) need to think about making pre-emptive propaganda to the countries on KFC's itinerary and for the local British ambassadors to explain the history of the Falklands and the rights of the population to self-determination to each of the Foreign Ministers of each country.
That way, when the RG entourage arrives and she starts spouting off about her mythical fantasy land called Malvinas, the respective host officials will be able to smile politely and say “Yes, Yes, Yes, we know all about run along and deal with your domestic problems” without giving her any opportunity for traction.

3- that has become standard routine for quite a while now - had you not noticed the decline of verbal bullshit in her post Int visit communiques? Wheras before the issue always featured, nowadays it rarely gets a mention. Hence why half of our Legislature members are overseas so much!

Yep quite true what you say. Also another little something got put in place a couple of months ago and that has had the desired effect. Fascinating the way these things work. A real eye opener for a Benny.

Not long before the big ref in March. I do get excited about going to the polls. I can't wait to go and watch the count. It's amazing the little bits of body language you pick up here and there. The Malvinistas in the Town Hall will be easy to spot.

A few years ago in 2009 when a certain person didn't get returned, it was extraordinary to see the change to his persona as the news dawned. Then there was the 2005 election when someone stormed out once learning that they barely got a vote.

I tell you, it's better than the Pheonix Cinema.

Wasn't it a bad back last month. The upshot is that it is not prudent for her to away from Argentina for any length of time anymore just in case she gets ousted and replaced in one afternoon. If its good for Paraguay!

The Supreme Court unanmimously rejected CFK's request for per saltum AND also rejected their tcomplant against the civil court for extending the injunction.
15 ElaineB (#) Dec 27th, 2012 - 05:55 pm Report abuse
But, but, CFKC is such a successful lawyer that she could not possibly make a legal move that could never succeed.

Then again, we know she is a law school drop out and her son, Fat Max, did the same. Not the brightest crayons in the box.

Your CommentThere are so few people the know whe was a drop out, yet she calls herself a lawyer. The only one in that family that has a complete brain stem is the daughter ands he went to school in the USA......Fatsimo is nothing more then a thug with his campora goons.

What is she, 58, or something like that? That's not all that old. She seems to have a lot of “health problems” for somebody her age.

The Mad Bitch Of Argentina TMBOA was born 19th February 1953 and will be 60 in less than two months.

She is massively Bi-Polar and takes strong medication for that, she is also Hypo-tensive (lower than usual blood pressure) and there is no easy fix medication for that as there is for Hyper-tension. Hyper-tension is medicated by enlarging the arteries and blood vessels allowing the pressure to fall, the opposite of what is required for what she has.

By her own admission she raves at people but has promised to stop it: no evidence of that so far.

The real problem is that she has been put into a position she is completely unsuited to. It was only as a care-taker for Nestor, he husband while he waited through her term to get back in as President for a third term - then he croaked it before any of that could happen. She still wears black, but not out of respect but a cynical attempt to garner sympathy.

Some people feel sorry for her, I feel sorry for some of 'her' people like Simon68 and the others who did not vote for her and can see what she is doing to the country. The ones who voted for her (32.6% of those eligible to vote) deserve everything that is coming to them.

I have a very simple solution which I am convinced may happen in 2013: a single bullet to the medulla oblongata (this stops all the autonomic brain functions instantly).

She did have thyroid surgery and I'm sure she is on thyroid medication. The thyroid is extremely important. You can never get off that medication, you must take it every day. There are all sorts of side effects if one is not taking the medication consistently and the right dosage, not more or not less than needed, there will be side effects if not followed correctly.
23 Captain Poppy (#) Dec 28th, 2012 - 02:40 am Report abuse
depression, fatigue and weight gain are the primary side effects. SOme are more than the others.
24 Vuggevise (#) Dec 28th, 2012 - 10:21 am Report abuse
Chronic mental decrepitude seems to be the main side-effect in her case.

I have to say that IMO the thyroid thing was just a blind for neck surgery.

As you probably know a thyroidectomy has two incisions, one above each thyroid gland which are positioned each side of the neck.

TMBOA had a single incision at the base of the neck, right across from side to side. Whether she is on thyroid medication has been speculated about for some time.

The surgeon who gave the diagnosis that it was cancer (when it was not) was dismissed. However this same guy oversaw thousands of similar procedures and tissue tests WITH NO CONTRA RESULTS EVER (false positive).

I found that very strange that the only false positive ever recorded happened on TMBOA!

Her neck did smooth out considerably when the trauma had dispersed but it is almost as bad again now in areas near the base of her throat.

I would love to cure that permanently! :o)

False positives are not uncommon on thyroid cancer. And a good surgeon will leave virtually no scars to be seen on the neck after the second year. I have two incisions on my front neck from two years ago. They are virtually invisible unless I point them out and they get up close.
I have a recommendation for a neck incision for her that starts on the left and runs to the right and it. not from a scalpel but a ka bar

Hi Chris, I was wondering if CFK isn't taking a bottle or two of Glenfiddich to raise her blood pressure, she seems to be acting more and more like Leopoldo Galtieri who used to hit the Scotch pretty hard!!!!!!!

A ver happy and prosperous new year to you and yours!
