    It surely was the same Iranian-Cuban-Venezuelan Ninja Assasin Commando Unit that “killed” chantapufi Nisman..., backed this time by the Ultra dangerous Resistencia Ancestral Mapuche..., those filthy Abo terrorists whose beheadings of thousands of Christian babies have morphed Patagonia into a battlezone worst than Syria...

    All the above are..., of course..., under the direct command of Mme. Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner..., aka “La Potranca”....

    Chuckle..., chuckle...

    “Chuckle..., chuckle..”

    You appear to find this appalling crime amusing.

    “ ...“killed” ...Nisman...under the direct command of Mme. Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner...”

    Following the simple logic of who ticks all of the boxes for means, motive and opportunity in either case tends to point to Peronists doesn't it.

    A first, news about this murderous attack sent chills down the spine of many Argentines who still remember a time where violence was the way to solve political differences.

    Security minister Patricia Bullrich was quick to advance that the attack had to be the work of “mafia,” “sicarios,” or else “political crime.”

    However, it quickly became obvious, not only that the crime had been carried out by none of the above; surveillance cameras covered the attack and showed a couple of individuals leaving huge amounts of evidence as they drove away from the crime scene, visibly intoxicated.

    It has to be said that Bullrich wasn't alone in jumping the gun -- Zaphod, our expert on all things Argentina, thought this crime was a golden opportunity to fan the flames of hatred:

    ”(Ticking the) boxes for means, motive and opportunity in either case tends to point to Peronists doesn't it.”

    Zaphod made his misleading comment more than a day after the attack, when it's clear that politics was not involved. By doing so, he has shown his utter disregard for real facts when an opportunity to score some cheap political points arises.

    Do not believe all the booooring evidence that shows that the killers were two men of Roma descent..., the husband and the father of a 24 years old moher of two that was being extra-maritally fucked by the killed...

    It is much more fun to believe our security minister..., Pato Bullrich...,who has invented all the above fairy tales about Iranian-Cuban-Venezuelan Ninja Assasin Commando Unit that “killed” chantapufi Nisman... the Ultra dangerous Resistencia Ancestral Mapuche..., those filthy Abo terrorists whose beheadings of thousands of Christian babies have morphed Patagonia into a battlezone worse than Syria... and that now is babbling about a “Murderous Gypsy Mafia Ring”...

    Good thing them killers weren't Jews...
    Turnip Minister Pato Bullrich would be organizing a Kristallnacht by now...

    Ha Ha! Indeed...Pato Bullrich was salivating on the prospect of a complex investigation leading to sinister terrorist groups...which would have been a welcome distraction from depressing news about the worsening state of the economy. When the findings ended up her fantasies, all that was left was to praise the security forces for a quick job.

    Changing subject, it appears MP isn't going to publish a story about the impressive presentation of Cristina book Sinceramente in Buenos Aires' Book Fair. Thousands of Argentines mobilized in spite of rainy weather to hear Cristina speak. And speak she did, without disappointing. She spoke of hope for the future, of the need for a social contract among Argentines, and much more. Her book is selling exceptionally well, becoming the literary event of the year.

    What was most amazing, though, was to see the faces of those who went to see Cristina through giant screens.Those were the faces of emotion and hope. Hope. Something not readily available in Argentina today.

    Sr. Massot...

    What book...?
    The one that the whole of Argentina has been talking about for the last couple of weeks?
    The one presented yesterday in front of a multitude..., transmitted live by ALL television channels...?
    The one published by Penguin Random House whose first editon of 20.000 exemplars was sold out before reaching the shops...?
    The one that has by now sold ~300,000 copies...?
    Never heard of it.

    Returning to the terrorist mafioso attack of yesterday..., clearly instigated..., organized and perpetrated almost personally by Cristina FERNANDEZ de Kirchner...

    The circunstancial evidence surfacing against Cristina FERNANDEZ is absolutely clear, indeniable and condenatory...
    Just three examples...
    1) Q...: What's the surname of one of the killers...? - A...: “FERNANDEZ.”
    2) Q...: What's the surname of the cheating wife...? - A..: “FERNANDEZ.”
    3) Q...: Who is the second killer married with...? - A........: “FERNANDEZ.”

    I rest my case...;-)

    @Think

    Why, sure, you cannot be but right! Fortunately we have Sec Min Pato B at the controls, making sure nobody escapes!

    Fortunately, the brain instigator who could be not one but CFK will be soon slapped with another judicial process -- luckily, judge Claudio Bonadio will be back from his medical licence in time to be awarded the new process, which in Comodoro Pro is routinely done.

    So reassuring to have such an efficient government...

    Sr. Massot...

    You say...:
    ***”(Judge) Claudio Bonadio will be back from his medical licence in time to be awarded the new process (against la yeguita)“**

    I say...:
    I lke your choice f the word ***”Awarded“***...
    -As you surely know..., in Argentina cases are awarded to judges by ***”draw”*** (sorteo)...
    Conveniently for judge Bonadío..., ***“sorteo”*** in Spanish also can mean ***“circumvent/bypass”***
    Else..., it would be impossible fo him to justify the simple arithmetic calculation that tells us that the probability of him being awarded 9 out of 10 faux causes against la potranca is exactly...: 0,00000000177%...

    Young people lie...
    Old people lie...
    Math doesn't...

    “Ha Ha! Indeed...”

    You appear to find the crime amusing, too. The prospect that it might benefit your political enemies was your only concern, who cares if two people died?

    EM,

    “Zaphod, our expert on all things Argentina”

    I would never claim that.

    ”Zaphod made his misleading comment... By doing so, he has shown his utter disregard for real facts when an opportunity to score some cheap political points arises.”

    I didn't present anything as facts on this occasion. I presented an opinion (in response to Think's non-fact-based attempt to score political points) that I even qualified with “...tends to point to...” So why do you hold me to higher editorial standards than either Think or yourself?

    “Changing subject, it appears MP isn't going to publish a story about [presentation of CFK's book]”

    Maybe because it was invitation only so was effectively a private event for supporters?

    “She spoke of hope for the future...”

    Hope is not a strategy.

    Did she explain how she was going to make everything fantastic? Did she explain why she didn't do that when she was in power?

    Did she talk about how things got so bad during her administration that she stopped releasing economic statistics and invented an official peso:US$ rate that resulted in the alternative blue peso rate? No?

    “What was most amazing, though, was to see the faces of those who went to see Cristina through giant screens.Those were the faces of emotion and hope. Hope.”

    So why was Macri elected if offering hope was sufficient? Is it because hope is easier to accept as an option that actually having to work to make society and the economy better?

    If CFK gets re-elected then Argentina can only blame itself for what happens next.

    “Ha Ha!” “Chuckle..., chuckle...”
    Once again the “Torturer's Tango Duo” prove that they are nothing more than despicable terrorists on the lam. What was it you said about taking joy in the death of somebody you “disagree” with, Kamerad/Komrade Rique? I truly look forward to reading your obituary, you genocidal oppressor of Tupi speakers. When that day comes, I'll be sure to put it out that you committed suicide, just like you two Chantapufis did with Nisman... :)

    Talk is cheap...especially when one signs with a nick.

    Now, since MP won't remove your hateful, repugnant postings, I am going to respond.

    First of all, would you come out and support your allegations showing your real face? I did not think so. Just know that shouting from the dark is typical of cowards.

    But guess what, imoyaro: I ain't going anywhere. You can call me names, you can call me “Kamerad/Komrad” as many times as you want...you can publicly hope for my death (how childish). In reality, it feels good to be hated by characters like you. And, I will be coming often and posting here, just for the pleasure to see you fuming and chocking.

    “Ha Ha!” ~ Kamerad/Kamerad Rique commenting on the assassination of a Cambiemos politician...

    Kamerad/Komrade, ever since you showed up here, you have linked up with Gauchito Drink in an attempt to gain personal information on people who opposed the NarcoKleptocracy. Of course you want my name, and need to silence anyone, ( just like Maduro is doing now,) who would dare to point out what it is you truly stand for. As for wishing for the death of National Socialists, Marxist and Religious extremists, including you, that's a healthy attitude in a world where people you openly support are responsible for concentration camps, extrajudicial murder and torture, selective starvation and denial of health care to anyone who is not a card carrying member of “the party.” As I have said before, I don't want you to go away, especially since you are providing evidence to anyone that reads, that you support the Castroist government, the obscenely obese Maduro's reign of terror and misery, and your solidarity with Putin and Xi, the most repressive regimes on the planet. This is very important to me, as it shows your act of being in favor of democracy to be an utter fraud. A typical Argentine journalist and politician, your neighbors need to know that the only reason you are seeking office to get your hand on public money, just like La Asesina. So carry on, I look forward to you providing more opportunities to expose your totalitarian sympathies...
