Just another cover-up. Seen the Garre write-up?Apr 12th, 2015 - 01:14 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
See the bit about organising protests against then-President Bush. Wouldn't those be 'activities inconsistent with status'. So she's a Kirchnerite foot-soldier. Needs to be protected and paid off.
Don't worry NML will find the accounts, freeze them and expose the Kthugs.Apr 12th, 2015 - 01:34 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

The credibility of Clarin, the main opposition newspaper in Argentina, is in tatters after its last monumental fiasco.
Publishing a front page, large headlined story based on anonymous sources and conditional statements and then being bluntly disavowed by the bank in question has sunk this traditional media outlet and its media group into a new low--it that was possible after much flogging of the dead horse--pardon the pun--that was Nisman's assassination by the government theory.
Enrique going back to Argentina yet, or still on the run? Meet me there next month at Tortoni's and I will buy you an espresso and a media luna......no?Apr 13th, 2015 - 01:43 am - Link - Report abuse 0

Go on, have a look!
Wow if that is what Enrique considers a monumental fiasco then the train wreck of 10 years of Kirchnerism must rank as one of Argentina's worst disasters ever!Apr 13th, 2015 - 05:39 am - Link - Report abuse 0
Inflation and growth statistics lied about.
Being sued left right and centre.
The Malvinas still don't exist.
No oil companies in the Falklands have been prosecuted.
Still can't find hide nor hair of bombing terrorists.
No growth and high inflation.
A tanking currency and more than one exchange rate.
But a newspaper claims something isn't true and it's a MONUMENTAL FIASCO!

Her Majesty is holder of the Argentine honour Grand Collar of the Order of the Liberator General San Martin since 1960 - given during the presidency of Arturo Frondizi. The Duke of Edinburgh, her husband, is also a holder of this honour.

This one, particularly, shows the dirty tricks used by the opposition media. In their haste to tar the government, they have shed basic ethic and professional principles, showing their sordid revenge ambitions.
But hey, the first primary election results in the Province of Salta show the Ks may give them a run for their money!
Look at these numbers:
Party Peronist: 59.57 per cent
PRO (Macri): 25.12 per cent

I bet two corgis look nice wearing those 'collars'!
They would not have pretentions however as they are 'Royal Corgis' and far superior to any argies.
Vultures' lobbying expenses soarApr 13th, 2015 - 11:56 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
I guess it makes business sense to invest in lobbying when the reward is big. Too bad. It will be lost money because Argentina has taken a firm stance and no amount of U.S. pressure will change anything.
Consider how much money is going just to lobby decision makers in foreign relations, trade, agriculture and finance:
”The American Task Force Argentina (vultures) spent US$1.49 million lobbying branches of the US government against Argentina last year, a 48 percent increase....ATFA has spent US$6.09 million on trying to push its case with the US government.”

Even funnier! You do realise that a couple of million $s is peanuts in these circumstances?

So Arg money that could be used to help the Millions upon Millions of slum dwellers was just pissed away for nothing.
I think its funny that dumb people like Reekie think that Arg is winning. The interest and penalties click along day after day. In the end Arg will pay, Principal, Interest, Penalties and Attorney expenses. Doesn't really matter when.
Friday we should hear the IMF decision.
