GMO GEOPOLITICS, VULTURE FUNDS, AND THE GREAT BANANA REPUBLIC OF THE ...

Last Saturday I blogged about Argentine President Christine Fernandez de Kirchner's speech at the UN, or rather, I let her blog about herself. You'll recall I posted her thinly veiled speech at the UN, a speech that was justifiably impassioned against the corruption of the American/Western financial system, the "vulture" hedge funds that are seeking to destroy her country, and the corrupt American courts allowing them to do it. You'll also recall that, at one point, Ms. Fernandez de Kirchner asked the blunt question, what corporation or entity in anyone's experience is allowed to gain over a 100% return on an investment in less than five years? Her clear implication was that such returns can only be possible with "Insider influence" and corruption. She insisted adamantly that Argentina wanted to pay its debts, was capable of doing so, but doing so according to the restructuring agreements of the last decade.

Then, this last week, I also blogged about Ms. de Kirchner's interview for a newspaper in her country, an interview in which she responded to US allegations that ISIS had targeted her for assassination (yea... riiiiigggghhhht!). The information allegedly came from US intelligence. But Ms. de Kirchner is not having any of it. You will recall that she made it very clear that if anything happened to her, one should not look to the Middle East, but "to the north."

Clearly Ms. de Kirchner has had it with the Great North American Banana Republic with Nukes, and the psychopathic narcissistic plutocratic junta running it, and one cannot blame her.

But there's more news, as evidenced from the title of this blog, for Argentina and Russia have now inaugurated a Spanish language version of that channel in that country:

Vladimir Putin and President Cristina Kirchner of Argentina Inaugurate International Spanish RT Channel

Here, again, the Argentine President is letting the Great North American Banana Republic know exactly what she thinks of its corrupt culture:

"Kirchner said that ‘this is a great moment as finally they have an international channel that will work outside of the Western MSM agenda in Spanish. This will be the channel that will broadcast real news, not the fake news prevalent in the Western MSM. It will express the true Latin American values without the interference of the third parties.’"

I hope you caught the significance of that remark, for what President de Kirchner seems to be saying - in a manner resembling similar recent statements from the President of Russia (and for that matter, the President of Hungary)  - is that basic core Western cultural virtues are under assault from the galloping corruption that is not only marching through the institutions, but parading through them.

And you cannot blame her, for as the article also points out, there was a hidden story, a hidden history, behind all those recent Argentine defaults, that probably wasn't clearly pointed out by the west's lamestream media presstitutes:

"During Putin’s summer visit, Argentina expressed desire to host the international Spanish RT channel, and at the same time, confirmed that it would be ready to increase dramatically the export of Argentine agricultural products to the Russian market to replace the banned EU products. Shortly after this, Western MSM suddenly started circulating the ‘news’ that Argentina is about to declare another default. According to the US/EU ‘news,’ Argentina failed to pay interest on its debt in a timely manner. It turned out that in order to generate the ‘pre-default’ state, Western banks holding Argentine funds designated for interest payment, froze Argentine accounts. This generated the inability by the Argentine government to pay on time. Argentinian peso immediately plummeted and capital flight started. Together with the Western MSM hysteria, all this could have tipped the country into a crisis."

It could have "tipped the country into a crisis", but, as the article notes, it didn't. Instead, Argentines rallied around their government, and Ms. de Kirchner has hung in there, and gone toe-to-toe with the vulture-GMO capitalism culture trying to ruin her country.

Now, whether or not you agree with President Fernandez de Kirchner (and I imagine that most of us, in the main, do), that point about rallying behind their government prompts the real question, and that question in turn highlights the real deeply spiritual nature of the problem, for when was the last time you saw enthusiasm - real genuine enthusiasm, not the zombified "support the troops" no matter what, reality-TV, fake plastic patriotism you've seen in the West in general and the USA in particular since 9/11 - when was the last time you saw real enthusiasm for a western leader, for, say, Mr. Blair, or Mr. Cameron, or Mr. Sarkozy, or Ms. Merkel, or Mr. Cameron, or Mr. Bush, or Mr. Obama...? And why no enthusiasm? I suspect it's because we all know, viscerally and intuitively, that before any of them get into office, so corrupt is the system now, that we know, viscerally and deeply, before they open their mouths, that they are lying, and that they do not have the general public welfare of their respective peoples in mind.

Don't believe me? Then ask yourself this: why is it that these spiritually empty "leaders" are all but indistinguishable from the talking heads on the BBC, Deutsche Welle, MSNBC, or Faux News, interviewing them? Why does it all seem so scripted? Play acting? Insubstantial theater? Why is it that it's increasingly impossible to recognize the distinct faces Diane Sawyer, Bill Maher, Bill O'Reilly Barack Obama and David Cameron and Angela Merkel?  It's because their puddle-deep personalities have all merged. It's because they're no longer grounded in any sort of reality, much less real genuine decency. Their depth, and decency, has all been scripted for the sound bite, and in the end, it remains nothing but a vast exercise in rationalization for the corruption of the oligarchs behind them.

Now, maybe, just maybe, that is why Ms. de Kirchner wants to provide her country with an alternative to those western news sources, from a country where at least some of those corrupt oligarchs, who were looting their own country, went to jail for their efforts, while the Great Banana Republic to the North with Nukes, was bailing out its oligarchs, who promptly awarded themselves huge bonuses.  Maybe we should take a hint from her lead, and simply turn off those news channels, and allow our subscriptions to Le Monde, the Torygraph, the Guardian, The Washington Post, the New York Times, to lapse.

...and as for the geopolitics, well, you can imagine how a Spanish language RT is going to play in the rest of South America, compared to the twaddle coming out of the West's television news.

See you on the flip side...

  1. anyone think that she is the “ebola” gay, the nuke bomb ended ww2, maybe this is the kick off for ww5.

  2. It’s not a matter of RT telling the truth, It’s the matter if you believe it. All media outlets have warts, it’s just how many they have. For me, RT is a breath of fresh air compared to the western media, and no amount of “truth telling” will change my mind.
    Then there’s the Daily Bell, some great comment there on the “mistranslations” of truth, and it doesn’t matter which way you slice it, it’s up to the observer, er there’s that word again.

  3. You know how far we have fallen when Russia is a voice for free markets, peace and reason. The BRIIICSAA (105 nation alliance), are under the heal of $FRN. We are under it’s heal as well. As long as the World is forced to use $FRN’s.(BitCoin need not apply with it’s NSA SHA-2 back doors) We will continue down the “Slow Burn Path”. Senora Presidente’s plea for sanity, fair play and justice. Should have been front page news. RT in Latin America is again, one of Putin’s master chess moves on our checker board.

  4. Russia has a long history of script writing and brain washing. Be careful of the actions you applaud. It may be more of the same dressed up like a Flamenco dancer and playing castanets.

  5. Joseph you forgot to mention RT has a Arabic news channel as well. Can Chinese, Japanese, Korean RT news channels be that far behind. I just wish that the US media would be honest and admit they’re mouthpieces like the media of other countries. Stop lying especially to yourselves be honest for once. But I am not betting the farm on that anytime soon.

    Superb commentary!
    Yes, the transnational capitalist class, that hegemonic collector actor of highly centralized neoliberalism, are stepping upon the peoples’ face, parading over the serfs the fact that they are powerless. As we speak http://rt.com/ headline #1 story is NO TTIP!(where worldwide national sovereignties will be usurped by a worldwide corporatized governance. Nation states will officially be vassals subject to the global governance TTIP.
    Yes, the moral representation of “our” leadership and media has all been scripted for the sound bite. The governments are becoming more & more toothless(with the TTIP being the fatal coup de grace); the shark bites are in the oligarchies of in-your-face corruption, and they’re prayers, are prayers of nothing but pure greed.
    Argentine President Christine Fernandez de Kircher is symbolically saying for many nations, “Patria Libre! O Morir!”/Free Country! Or Death!”
    And who really brought on Argentina’s debt? Who had the Yankee Dollar claims on Latin America. It was the local oligarchies w/offshore accounts The dollar debt of Argentina in the early 1990’s was owned mainly to Argentinians operating out of offshore banking centers!
    As FDR put it/The liberty of a democracy is NOT SAFE if the people tolerate the growth of PRIVATE POWER to a point where it becomes stronger than the democratic state. Now it is NOT the democratic state that is in the privatized crosshairs; but Earth herself.

          Your very welcome Dana Thomas.
          I was surprised at the end, with the GMO revelation. Looks like Dr. Hudson & Dr. Farrell were on that same many moons ago.

  7. Queen Sheeba? just another lying politician/ policeman loose in the china shop.
    Any one wanna bet that she is related too Pharaoh Obama.
    Ferris Bullion is getting set too return.

  8. Good luck with finding real news in RT, as it is as much propaganda as any news source in the west. And as for it promoting her western cultural values, well, why would it? It is Russian, first and foremost. I can’t help but think that something plus really amiss here…how can Ms Kirchner actually think that RT is a ‘true’ news source and why doesn’t she promote her own country’s news sources, aren’t they any good?

    When someone automatically assumes that a certain person is lying before they even consider what is being said, then they themselves have blinders on and can’t really say that the other person is wrong when they haven’t even considered the statements or facts being discussed. At the same time,when they automatically assume that someone has pure unselfish motives and what that person says is automatically correct, they also have blinders on and are in no position to fairly assess the legitimacy of those remarks. Of course the entire western leaders ‘ act as a unified group’ if you assume that they do and don’t even consider all their own disagreements, even when you’ve discussed some of those very disagreements. I don’t understand this post of yours at all, maybe I’m missing something here and it’s not that I’m missing the corruption of the west because I see that as clearly as can be. I just think Russia is just as corrupt and Argentina is not exempt from those same influences.

    1. loisg,

      Your posts are about as heartfelt, compelling, insightful and relevant to the real world as a speech by Chelsea Clinton. Honestly, if I didn’t know any better, I’d think you had just showed up to spread mulch. Then again, maybe I do.

      1. lol…release your anger…you might both be right and wrong at the same time.

        Kind of like mathematics…one to the power of 46 is still one. Funny thing that one…

      2. Basta, I don’t care if people agree with me or not, I thought this was a place where people could comment openly, but maybe I’m wrong about that. If you don’t agree, that’s perfectly fine with me, but your comments leave me feeling that you are not open to differing views on anything. Your comments are very rude.

        1. loisg,

          You hold the banner for the status quo with finely tuned indifference. The only thing heartfelt are your platitudes, always in favor of that which has led us to the precipice upon which we stand, as clumps of sod trail off into the void. I think you doth protest too much in a very and offer far too little with extreme calculation.

          If that is rude, so be it. Gloves are off these days, and I agree wholeheartedly with Dr. Farrell’s characterization that the USA is today “the Great North American Banana Republic with Nukes, and the psychopathic narcissistic plutocratic junta [is] running it.”

          The thing is, I don’t think you truly think Argentina is the real problem, or even Russia; and there is the rub. Controlled opposition much?

          1. The gloves may be off, but let’s try to keep it friendly guys. None of us has cornered the market on truth. Not saying either of you are being unfriendly or that your points aren’t legitimate, but just a reminder to keep it all on a friendly level. 🙂

  9. Amen to that. Unplug the Mighty Wurlitzer and wake up to what’s really going on and why.

    Kirchner’s speech was a revelation–a real, flesh-and-blood leader who speaks the truth and points out the obvious, and bluntly states what’s really going on behind all the msm lies and propaganda. And literally points her finger at “the leader of the free world,” who was sitting in the audience and who had to shut up, sit there and actually listen to what she said. Wonderful moment; indeed it may just indeed be a turning point in contemporary history.

    It’s powerful stuff and it made a lot of people giddy that such a simple formula was even possible in today’s hermetically sealed, three-letter echo-chamber.

    Now a Spanish-language RT. Terrific news. An alliance is building against the West’s culture of lies, and I’ve been saying for some time that the next war will be an info war, and that profound, crippling damage can be done simply by telling the truth, exposing the lies and showing the mechanics and depth of the corruption.

    People have simply had it, and the abused are not taking it any more and are giving the West the finger, finally. The Pentagram better get moving on that Death Star, pronto!

  10. Well, in any case RT was already quite active in Spanish though as far as I could tell with less material translated with respect to the English-language section.
    No sign yet of RT in Italian – yet again Italy is being left to be squabbled over by the Germans and the Vatican…
