In her first appearance after being charged over the alleged cover-up of the AMIA terrorist attack, Argentine president Cristina Fernández, who has taken refuge at her home in Patagonia, was politically active participating in several public works inaugurations, but in no moment made reference to the case and promised to keep fighting.

    With a bit of luck she will be getting the 'Full Mussolini' before to long although the thought of her hanging upside down is a bit scary...

    Hopefully, she's so vain that she tries to hang onto the Presidency until its too late and they string her up!

    On the plus side for the Portenos - she will probably attract all the flies in the area away from any other rotting garbage, or dog turds on the streets.

    Maybe they'll stop tormenting ol' unwashed Tobi Nostrils - could be what makes him and Paul Cedron so 'bat-sh!t crazy' !!

    A new “ new high complexity hospital” with only one bed: it has TMBOA engraved on the top frame.

    As if she ever does anything other than ball and shout and give blow jobs to visiting Chinese 'dignities'.

    Welcome one and all, after lurking in the wings for sometime watching the drama in Argentina unfold, I though I'd enter the fray to continue the kicking. By the way I have to report that mcdonalds in av corrientes BA, has run out of ketchup.

    While the base of the government throw rumors and play it as if Stiusso was the Argentine Keyser Soze, CFK can’t help hint with her attitude that she had Nisman murdered.

    They say BCRA is down to U$13B, I say its much less than that. Can a Reserve Bank go bankrupt?
    Hmm I wonder

    The Kidiots on this forum are going to be shocked when the next Ruler takes over and proves that every U$ in Argentina has been absconded with by the Narco Thugs currently in power.

    and I will laugh and laugh.

    Well this sounds much more like what I envisioned went on at Nisman's right after he died. Not bad for a pro K publication. ;)

    Perhaps they are trying to discredit the whole investigation, and Fein in particular? Contaminated crime scene.

    “ Gosh, the crime scene was compromised by those bungling oafs, we'll never be able to investigate properly... ” etc. etc.

    @15. Even better. Storm 'palace' in overwhelming numbers and kill everything. Quebracho, La Campora, Timerman, Puricelli, Maximo, 'Anibal', Capitanich, Kirchner. Gun them all down. Lamp posts, chains, butcher hooks. Hang the cadavers up, dripping blood and intestines. Remember the British dead servicemen in the Falklands . 100,000 argies for every Brit. And 250,000 for every Falkland Islander.

    Calling argies fools is very kind of you. Amoral, brainless, degenerate, genocidal, incompetent, queer, rapacious, slug-like, venal nonenties that need to be exterminated.

    Some are amazed at how I can endure all I have to endure. I tell them it was here in Patagonia - with the wind, the cold and the snow - that I learned that I can endure anything,” she said. “To live in southern Argentina you have to be tough.”

    to live in the Falkland's you probably have to be even tougher than a soppy argy,
    this CFK thinks she is some kind of super woman,

    I bet all you argies will be very happy when she has gone later this year,

    to be replaced by a new, super CFK,
    you never know, anything is possible in CFKs

    I still would not rule out Fat Max. CFK could bump off any opposition and the Argentine public seem not to care.

    “Some are amazed” – She got that bit right.

    @6 Mucho Peso
    Start of a slippery slope, no doubt that’s how it began in Venezuela and Cuba, on the bright side you’re still doing better than N. Korea, they probably never had ketchup in the first place.

    @18 Briton
    She does make it sound like she lives in a Tepee on the Pampas, rather than a heated palace with all mod cons and chauffer driven cars.

    You just don’t know what it’s like ”being the only President in the village”.

    I think she wasnt referring to Patagonias weather, she was meaning “you have to be tough down here to stand up to the local knuckle dragging thugs” as Jeremy and his crew found out.

    As for Fat Max, looks like he has had too many Feed Lot Asados. He will probably curl up and die from all the chemicals, hormones and GM feed that the beasts are getting fed on and the highly cancerous wood tar and smoke that they are cooked over. BBC did an excellent hatchet job exposé on Argenchinian beef last night.

    “ I tell them it was here in Patagonia - with the wind, the cold and the snow”

    Next -a CFK visit to the Argentine Antarctic base so she can really whine about hardship.

    Remember these articles about Hexenbiest and Tinman being unhappy with the U.S.'s involement with Nisman/AMIA?

    It gets funny - ala flied lice. So now rotting roadkill wants America's assistance in the matter. Go figure. These lunatics are so entertaining.

    And this is the story that succinctly defines what it is to be Anglo:

    ”Then, at 12:55 a.m. the following morning, the newlyweds decided to retire to bed and Dawson asked Golightly to help take off her wedding dress.

    Instead, he attacked her and she thought she was going to die.

    “The defendant (Golightly) then tried to undo Ms. Dawson’s dress. She received a crochet (to undo the dress with), but the defendant then refused to undo his new wife’s dress,” prosecutor Sarah Traynor told Peterlee Magistrates Court, the Sunderland Echo reported.

    “The defendant then jumped up from his chair, approached Ms. Dawson and pushed her over.

    “He then sat on top of her and started punching her with clenched fists. He then got up and left the room. It appears that the defendant then came back to the room.”

    Let us not overlook the area further south than where TMBOA is presently and the reasons WHY the Brits had a scientific station there;

    Check out plate 15 in particular.
