THREE AND A HALF CHEERS FOR ARGENTINA’S PRESIDENT FERNANDEZ DE ...
As regular readers here are aware, I seldom post videos to blog about, since they are much more difficult to reference and comment upon. But as today is Saturday, I hope readers will indulge me in posting a video from You Tube (which was shared with me by a regular reader here, Ms. K.M.) of Christine Fernandez de Kirchner, President of the Republic of Argentina. Her speech is about half an hour long, and worth every impassioned minute of what may be one of the most damning indictments of what the western system of international finance - and the American judicial and financial corruption at the heart of a whacko out of control not-based-in-reality foreign policy - have become, for while President Fernandez de Kirchner never mentions names, it is crystal clear who the main focus of her remarks is about. You may not agree with all of it, you may not agree with any of it; but in the end, I think you'll find it one of the most sobering indictments on diplomatic record in recent history. I will not, today, comment any further on her remarks. But I know many of you will have your own thoughts, and share them, I hope.
I won't say listen, and enjoy, but rather, listen "between the lines," and ponder carefully what President de Kirchner is saying, and I'll see you on the flip side...

Argentina Tells U.S.: We’re Based on the U.S. Presidential and Constitutional System—You Can’t Legally Interfere in Our Affairs
Argentine President Cristina Fernandez is rubbing in the Obama administration’s face the fact that her nation’s system of government and Constitution are “practically a copy of the U.S. Constitution…. We have copied the United States’ Presidential system, with the separation of the three branches,” whose duties and responsibilities are defined by the Constitution, she said in her Sept. 30 speech.
In establishing a mechanism for paying the debt to bondholders through a new debt swap, she emphasized, the Argentine Congress has acted according to the responsibilities defined by the Constitution. The United States would never tolerate a foreign power dictating to it, telling it what its Congress can or cannot do. Why does the U.S. think it’s acceptable for a U.S. court to dictate to a sovereign Argentina?
In a strongly-worded letter to Secretary of State John Kerry on Sept. 29, Argentine Ambassador to the U.S. Cecilia Nahon made the same point. Referencing the principle of the sovereign equality of states enshrined in the UN Charter, she asserted that “based on these principles, the Argentine Republic has adopted a system of government which is substantially similar to that of the United States of America, establishing a representative, republican and federal democracy. Its organs of political representation enjoy democratic legitimacy, grounded in the principle of the sovereignty of the people of the Argentine Republic.” The Constitution also affirms, she said, that the Congress is empowered “to settle payment of the domestic and foreign debt of the nation.”
Thus, she concluded, “the acts of these political organs are subject only to the sovereignty of the people and the rest of the principles set forth in the Argentine Constitution. In no case can they be questioned by the organs of any foreign State.” Nahon warned that any attempt by U.S. courts to overturn Argentina’s sovereign debt restructuring, or challenge actions of Argentine political organs, “would not only fall outside of the jurisdiction of said courts, but also be an unlawful interference in the domestic affairs of the Argentine Republic, triggering the international liability of the United States of America.”
Well, she is certainly calling out the economic hitmen — whoever they are. And am I the only one that thinks she actually practically said she thought the beheading videos are fake? And then called on those countries with surveillance “that should know” to step up to the plate and bring forth the truth.
For, as Catherine Austin Fitts so ably points out, how can ANYONE make any kind of intelligent decision of where to invest ANYTHING (their money, their life force, etc.) without knowing what the TRUE game really is.
GOOD ONE! Loved it. I was not familiar with her before (except by name, of course). She is a very impassioned speaker, and she is clearly a bolo-master, as any good Argentine should be.
Hit ’em where it hurts, Christina! You GO, girl! 🙂
In a game where the dirty players seem to have the upperhand, how does one win?
“Nature eliminates what doesn’t work” “a destructive system cannot go very far”
Let us not insult the good name of Falcons, Vultures, Pigs and even Serpents. These things that walk on their hind legs and dare to call themselves humans should be read out of the book of life. No creature no matter how vile we think they are should have their names associated with these monuments of evil. Even Parasites is to good a word to be used to describe them. Torture, Murder and Destruction best describe these objects.
your are absolutely right!
I think we know who she was addressing: The U.S. & Israel.
Both The Falcon & The Vultures.
Both assuming both roles, while protesting that they are the doves.
A Passionate Truth, too plain to see for all the world;
the emperors/transnationals are running naked upon the world stage.
For the invisibility cloak of corporate news has lost its power.
Bravo Senora Presidente. Que verdad! Wow, it looks like payday loans for countries are a bad idea too.. Usury, is still usury.. Vulture financial operations steal from us all..
Immersed in the virtual-reality muzac of the west’s Mighty Wurlitzer, it is refreshing, inspiring and yes, moving to witness such important, obvious truths being spoken with such passion by a major political figure before a world assembly.
A light of hope. Thank you for posting.
