    Just another Castroist Kriminal on the lam, eh, Kamerad/Komrade Rique?

    So she was medically able to fly to Cuba, but unable to fly back? Did she get worse in Cuba?

    All very convenient for the Kirchner family. Must be a surprise that they are claiming “ political persecution ” to all in sundry. Next time I am in court I will try that one.

    No surprises the crème de la crème of MP commentators are coming out swinging against CFK's daughter, who no doubt is cracking the foundations of democracy in Argentina by staying...oh the sacrilege! Nowhere else but Cuba!

    MP guardians of political ethics may want to take a look at the ongoing saga involving prosecutor Carlos Stornelli and his dealings with a fake lawyer, Marcelo D'Alessio in extorting money from business people under threats of being incarcerated under the “corruption notebooks case.”

    Federal judge Alejo Ramos Padilla has already summoned Stornelli to testify...four times in a row -- but Stornelli has refused to appear and is not talking to the media. Oh, and he is not living in Cuba or any other foreign land -- he now moves around with police custody that keeps pesky reporters from approaching the prosecutor. Talk about double standard!

    Because MP has not found out the story, I am including a link to one of numerous stories already published on the Stornelli case.

    Oh my, Kamerad/Komrade Rique, the José Goebbels of Mercopress says “Look, look, another corrupt Argentine politician!” Back on topic, on the bright side, Chavez went to Cuba for medical treatment and that went swimmingly well. Let's hope Florencia has a similar outcome.

    Dear EM deflection is the norm for you. I suspect that ALL the political classes are bent.Not just the Perons and Kirchners of this world. What a dull place Argentina would be without some scandal.

    Oh, I know, what really excites them is real world corruption which is only CFK's domain and very especially her daughter Florencia, to whom imoyaro directs his charitable thoughts:

    “Chavez went to Cuba for medical treatment and that went swimmingly well. Let's hope Florencia has a similar outcome.”

    I would hide my face in shame if I ever caught myself wishing ill to an individual with whom I happen to disagree.

    C'mon, imoyaro. Say you are sorry for writing those shameful words. Say you were not thinking straight. Or is it your real you that ugly?

    Why Kamerad/Komrade, you know damned well I look forward to reading your obituary. You supported what Che and Castro did over the decades, barbed wire and all. You support starvation and denial of medicine and now power to the helpless in Venezuela, supported by Castroism. Am I that ugly? Maybe you need to look in the mirror... :)

    What an ignorant, hateful discourse.

    “Barbed wire and all.” Anything to say about Videla and Pinochet?

    Camarada (or Kamerad or Comrade) an insult? -- of course, your resentful nature won't ever allow you to grasp the real meaning of the word.

    You are sadly reduced to keep ranting your resentment for fellow human beings who, according to your thwarted views, don't deserve life -- still, I don't wish you ill fate.

    Your pitiful rants only hurt yourself, “i.”

    Why? Because “Los muertos que vos matáis gozan de buena salud.”

    Poor Kamerad/Komrade Rique, I hate murderers, especially the ones who kill on an industrial scale in the service of “ideology.” In case you hadn't noticed Videla, Pinochet and even Fidel have been frog marched from this Vale of Tears and cast headlong into the smoldering dustbin of history. Your turn will be soon enough... :)

    “Your pitiful rants only hurt yourself, “i.””

    You'll regret saying that if he goes and shoots up a school or something...

    I hope he does get enough release by venting in this section.

    “the crème de la crème of MP commentators are coming out ...”

    Thank you for calling me the crème de la crème.

    “...swinging against CFK's daughter”

    I just asked a simple question: Why was she OK to fly to Cuba but not OK to fly back? You haven't answered the question.

    As I see it there are 3 possibilities:

    1. She's become more ill;
    2. She wasn't well enough to fly to Cuba but did so against doctor's orders. If so, she could fly back against doctor's orders too, if she really wanted to (I am not suggesting she does that); or
    3. It is an excuse not to fly back to Argentina and face justice.

    If 1 or 2 were correct there would be some sort of evidence...

    It says in the article “She originally travelled to Cuba to participate in a cinema festival and conference”. So...

    4. She got ill/saw a doctor for existing symptoms while there, and was diagnosed with PTSD and (conveniently) advised not to fly.

    And it's official...

    Nice if she ends up getting an Interpol warrant...

    I am astonished by the shallowness exhibited by MP commentators who can't bother to comment on the catastrophic news about Argentina's economic situation under Macri and can't be bothered to take notice of an extortion and illegal spying scandal involving high level officials that keeps growing as we speak.

    No sir: these know-it-all heroes are all worked out about CFK's daughter staying in Cuba.

    By the way, the judicial harassment on Florencia Kirchner appears to hit Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner in a way 10 judicial processes did not.

    This displays under crude light the malevolence of Macri and his gang, who will stop at nothing to achieve their goals -- to the delight of MP keyboard valiant commentators.

    I can't say I am astonished at Kamerad/Komrade Rique's continuing attempts to draw away from the Kriminals attempting to evade justice, as he has long made it clear he supports the extrajudicial murders and imprisonments, not to mention the starvation and misery being caused by the Castroists, (for whom he has expressed admiration,) right now. Of course, it is the Castroists who are sheltering these Kriminals with bogus “medical statements.” About you and your boyfriend's comments about me allegedly going to shoot school children, I'll remind you that last year, right after the Peronist Pope was requested to remove the diplomatic immunity from a paedophile member of the Vatican embassy staff, he refused to do so and immediately removed him back to safety in the Vatican. This was not posted in Mercopress. However you immediately made several posts about the pope and his so called “Social Justice.” Well Kamerad/Komrade, you certainly demonstrated to me that you think the sexual abuse of US children is your kind of “Social Justice.” I can't think of anything more malevolent than a truly perverted, murdering, ideological extremist (,your own neighbors' word for you,) and I just want to assure you that True “Social Justice” is coming for you... :)
