    Title should have read: Blind rats swarm Argentina's biggest thief at Aeroparque.
    I am sure all the Recoleta residents just love the droves of Kampora negro's blocking the streets and banging drums hoping for another choripan.

    Nice to see Cristina's won had to organise a crowd to welcome her.

    Worried that there'd be no spontaneous gathering?

    Looks like the rest has done her a world of good or has she had a retread on her face?

    Judging by the size of her backside she needs to stop sucking the choripans. :o)

    She will, no doubt, already have paid the bribes to get her a get out of jail card. Paid with the people's money of course.

    I suspect the next indictment won't be so easy to pay off.

    Pity she will not have a direct link to Nisman's death: or did she?

    TMBOA, you just can't get rid of her!

    The blind hate of the most backward sectors of Argentina society is once more at work and risks to exacerbate CFK's popularity, something they've been trying for years. Good luck, Mr. Macri. Cristina's personal wealth has been thoroughly investigated for years with no result. However, Macri's participation in off-shore companies is now of public knowledge.

    It's OK to attack Cretina if you can destroy her.

    Otherwise, you're just making her stronger.

    I see that there's a legislative proposal from the PRO party to remove Néstor Kirchner's name from streets and other public projects. Kirchnerism went crazy around much of the country, re-naming major avenues and public works projects after Néstor. In Río Gallegos the decent people don't refer to the new main-street name but instead to the former one. And Kirchnerism installed something like nine major Néstor statues just in this (Sta Cruz) province. The likes of which you'd expect to see in the Stalinist Soviet Union or Saddam's Iraq.

    It's likely that CFK could slither out of the future-dollar investigation darts and leave the heat on Kicillof. But Macri made things worse by not waiting on the devaluation of the peso. Not one of them is very bright. But let's see what sticks to CFK.

    It looks like the meaning of 'hero' is different for these La Campora idiots than it is in the rest of the world.

    Hero: a person who is admired for having done something very brave or having achieved something great (Cambridge English Dictionary).

    CFK hasn't done anything brave, nor has she achieved anything great (unless its the ability to steal with impunity).

    Hopefully she won't be able to bribe her way out of this one, but I doubt it.

    Think, your numbers are right, but they still don't mean jack!

    What´s a 60% or 80% of only 5% of voters?

    A 100% votes in Patagonia would easily be countered by Cordoba alone.

    There are chetos in Cordoba as well, but I'm pretty sure they are not that numerous as the ones living in puerto madero out of laundered money. Want some names? You probably voted for some of those ba$tards.

    I doubt there is enough political strength to get her properly investigated and into an unbiased court.... there's very little doubt she and her familial empire should be there though.

    Her families governing was essentially a Kleptocracy where she turned Argentina into a Narco-state and personal enrichment system.

    Campora hiring however many “Hoorahs” to cheer her on... quelle surprise .

    She deserves prison, ...

    but then so do most politicians.... locking her up with Tony Blair and George Bush for 25 years would be a nice punishment for all.

    @55 Captain Poppy,

    Think's comments are not so innocent or benign.

    “...blond teen bird from South Carolina”

    “Bird” is a British slang term. Many times used to express appreciation, it can also be used as a derogatory term to refer to young women as unthinking sexual objects.
    How would you surmise is Think's use of the word?

    It is all the more disturbing as he attaches “teen” to the term, suggesting a very young, naive, girl.

    Add in the “blond” racial overtones, and the stereotypical implications of her being from the South, and you start to see the full misogyny and de-humanizing meaning of his words.

    It amazes me and revolts me that this springs so easily to mind for him, and he feels it is acceptable.

    Think is thoroughly repellant.

    One would do well to look through the rolls of Sexual Predators living in Dunoon or Eastern Europe.

    Second link is about some jerk somewhere in greater BA pretending that he has been pushed to the floor. What are you talking about?

    Now, 4 “sweet” La Campora girls “pushing” (not dragging?) a journalist because she was being provocative (wtf?).

    So she had it coming because she tried to ask questions?

    Good thing for her that she was not wearing a mini-skirt and got raped because of it. Oh well, I guess she might have been provocative. She had it coming ... right?

    Goon is really appropriate. I remember you mentioned you were neighbors with the Kirchners. What an honor! You must be thrilled.

    Troy, :-)


    I looked at the second video after you clarified. Your specs where kind of ambiguous. Let's recap:

    Link 1, Video 1: A journalist is dragged, pushed out of public space.
    Link 1, Video 2: Same journalist appears lying on the floor, then claims she's been hit in the head because of being pushed around. Fake? Real? Let's settle on 50-50. Sounds good? Ok.
    However there is no way anybody can deny mistreatment on L1, V1. It actually happened. It was real, and absolutely nobody had any right of kicking her out of there (a public space) no matter what the nature of her questions was. What are these people? Some sort of security force? Where does that self-entitlement come from?

    Please stick with me for one more minute until I get to my point.

    I remember back in '13 when a pot-banger sucker punched a C5N reporter. Just to clarify, C5N is a news channel that hace a remarkable affinity for the Kirchners. The guy that punched that reporter was arrested.
    How about those girls pushing and dragging this reporter today. Were they arrested? No.

    Can you perceive the difference here? Pot-bangers automatically thought that the guy punching that C5N reporter was out of line and nobody talked about repression. What he did wasn't right. Period.

    What would have happened this morning if those violent girls would have been arrested? I can't imagine. Those at the gathering would have started riots crying how abusive and repressive Macri's gov't is.

    So it is ok for those girls to attack a journalist? Of course, they are “National and Popular” supporters.

    Can you at least start to begin noticing that very subtle and very, very thin line between democratic and fascist mindsets?

    Besides the fact that Boudou looks like a bloody hobo, in need of a shower and a good shave, in Latin America, the Courts usually have a distorted idea of what proof is, and makes one wonder if it is pure incompetence or whether the judges are being bribed to look the other way.

    Another funny thing is that so many people are content to blindly believe in the defendant's denial of any wrongdoing, just because the prosecuotors aren't capable of producing the proof that is out there, or rather, well hidden, in a convincing manner. The intelligent approach is to to rebuke any politician whose character is tainted by suspicion or the slightest hint of obscure dealings with public funds. But the good 'people' prefer to shoot themselves in the foot than to to believe that most politicians are just out for personal gain. They couldn't give a rat's arse about the people.

    As Think knows, The Mapuche and other Indians were wandering all over what is now Patagonia for thousands of years before the Spaniards came and genocided them. They were nomads. If that doesn't make Argies squatters what does? In Oz the Ozzers have done the decent thing and handed back huge swathes of land to the Abos. In the US, its the same, the Indians have got lots of their land back.

    But in what is now called Argieland the Amerindians are still waiting and their lands are occupied by squatters, mainly from Spain but many like Stink are recent arrivals who claim they have more rights to their land than the original inhabitants. It beggars belief, but when one considers the Argies are probably one of the biggest collection of liars and thieves it makes perfect sense.

    You have never had much imagination, Think.
    You often have to repeat what other posters have said because you cannot think of a logical & truthful answer, yourself.
    Deflection time is all the time for you.
    The question IS “are you a squatter?”
    The answer IS “yes, you ARE a squatter”.
    lndeed, we don't need a preamble in fractured English, all we need from you is a simple monosyllable, a yes or a no.
    But of course, you are incapable of the truth so we have to answer for you.
    Yes, you ARE indeed a Squatter.
    So we have that out of the way.
    Can YOU clean?
    As you will be doing your own cleaning, for l cannot ever imagine any person wanting to clean your whisky-sodden sty for you, no matter how much you promise to pay them.
    l say promise as it would be impossible for you Argentines to ever honour any pay agreements.
    Yes my wee lad, you are a prime candidate for Strict Female Supervision.

    Squatter Think,
    How dare you put yourself up for an equal to the Memsahib.
    You are just little more than a serf.
    l suggest that Hepatia is more your level.
    Begone you tiresome fellow, or l'll have my men give you a thorough thrashing for your impudence.
    You are still a squatter.
