Former President Cristina Kirchner runs the veil, empowers, challenges and lets us see the real intentions she has, leaves President Alberto Fernandez in a very bad way and is on his way to realizing the end of the plan he brought from Cuba.
The lobbying operation carried out by George Soros where it is worth mentioning that the trajectory of the investor in Argentina covers more than three decades of business with successive governments, in addition to a powerful network of influence. It is important to point out that in 2018, the year of the frustrated abortion project, ministers, senators, congressmen, press businessmen and leaders of the whole ideological arc were on the list of reliable leaders of the Open Society Institute,
Days later President Alberto Fernandez announced the sad news that it is not known when the compulsive confinement will end, inaugurating a third extension that this time rules out a full end date.
It is known that the Minister of Economy of Argentina is a disciple of the Nobel Prize winner in Economics (2001), the American Joseph Stiglitz, who once again pondered the virtues of his disciple and Argentine Minister of Economy, Martín Guzmán. Let’s remember that Soros asked President Fernández to put Argentina in the minimum expression in relation to the value of its assets, a plan that the northern giant, the United States, intends to replicate in its country of residence.
In view of all the above, it is logical that there is a lot of commotion in times when the Minister of Security Sabina Frederic carries out Orwellian cyber-patrols, which is a real act of daring when she intensifies the arrests that some jurists already warn as arbitrary while she abuses criminal figures such as public incitement to search homes, kidnap electronic devices and lock people up under the pretext of the virus,
This is how the fundamental guarantees of the citizens are dissolved, in front of the enemy, but as Mariano Moreno – the first journalist of the Rio de la Plata – said, “I prefer a dangerous freedom to a quiet servitude”.
Thus, Kirchnerism found in the pandemic and in the quarantine the entrance door for the implementation of the model that will end with the private initiative in Argentina, fulfilling the explicit mandate of the Hungarian magnate.
Cristina Fernández de Kirchner’s (CFK) space has always had internal divisions. On the one hand, there is a more pragmatic Peronist sector that looks at both the chief and the public opinion, this space, which today is back, came to face hard Kirchnerism at the polls. On the other hand, there are “Cristina’s soldiers”, as they like to call themselves, who are a reincarnation (coming to terms with) of that leftist justicialism that Perón himself used to his advantage, until they went underground and confronted him with weapons.
The Montoneros placed the body for the caudillo to return to the country and were betrayed. Finally, their base cadres were massacred by the last military dictatorship. It is worth noting that the Process of National Reorganization did nothing but end the dirty work of the Triple A of orthodox Peronism, for which the general had decided to carry out the action.
During the years of the first K cycle (2003-2015) this space had power, did business, took over public companies, but was unable to consolidate the hegemonic project it dreamed of for the country. When they dared to propose the constitutional reform so that in 2015 Cristina would be a candidate again, millions of Argentines came out to demonstrate against it, the project was shelved and Mauricio Macri had his chance wasted.
In the last campaign, with Cristina Kirchner hiding behind the paternalistic figure of an Alberto Fernandez who was the visible face with a moderate speech, hard Kirchnerism promised that she would come back “better”, that she learned from her mistakes and that everything would be different. However, the reality was very different, the only thing he learned is that he has to take absolutely everything with him in order not to return to the plain, as in the four years of Together for Change where justice prosecuted almost the entire Cabinet of Cristina Kirchner, but he could not finish judging the real responsible. Alberto Fernández had already signed a presidential absolution in which he absolved the former president from all trials, which would be his last official act before retiring.
The pandemic and the quarantine of the coronavirus gave him the perfect excuse to implement the exacerbated statism he always had in his head. Today the model of expropriation is part of the everyday discussion, while the private sector is falling apart, the authorities forbid many companies to work, but also do not authorize them to fire employees or reduce salaries.
The Argentinean state appears to be proposing bailouts to pay salaries with freshly printed money, which will soon be completely worthless, while the little machine of the Central Bank works in the light and shade. In the last year the fiscal deficit multiplied by 700% during the month of May, the numbers for June, with the collection from the ground, could be even worse.
These days, far from proposing a program to address the situation, the Frente de Todos openly recognized the model of the country it dreams of for the future. “A basically state-driven economy”. For the delirious Kirchnerists, this will lay the foundations for “a fairer country, where the bill does not always go to those who have the most”.
Meanwhile, small and medium-sized businesses are dropping like flies, and the very complicated economic situation that existed until March is now compounded by the consequences of an extended quarantine.
Walking down any street in Buenos Aires, even in the wealthiest areas, is a drama. In many blocks, the number of closed shops already equals the number of open ones.
Is it necessary to clarify where the trend is going?
Instead of offering tax relief, reducing the enormous weight of bureaucracy, deregulating labour contracts and allowing businesses to operate with the necessary safeguards, the State is drowning, drowning, drowning and no one is being saved. Last week the airline Latam reported that the country was not viable and withdrew from the Argentine domestic market
There are more and more voices assuring that the total and absolute meltdown of the country is nothing but a sinister plan to liquidate the private sector and keep everything when one sees the initiatives and the official discourse, there is more and more doubt about the conspiracy or the reality behind all this.
Surviving to 2021 and taking the last chance
In the last few hours, marches against the initiatives of a government, which many people already call “socialist”, have proliferated. Flags in defence of freedom and private property are not part of the neo-liberal discourse these days. They are on everyone’s lips.
Next year’s mid-term elections may be the last chance to get rid of Kirchnerism once and for all, they showed the thread and recognized their true project, which scandalizes millions of Argentines, including many who voted for Alberto Fernandez in the last elections.
The lack of political will that the president would have to give up in the face of the Hungarian magnate G. Soros makes him turn against the U.S. government.
And that is why Alberto Fernández opened an unexpected political conflict with Donald Trump by questioning his decision to become president of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and block the geopolitical growth of UNASUR, a regional forum designed by Néstor Kirchner, Hugo Chávez and Lula da Silva to counteract Washington’s influence in the Organization of American States (OAS).
The president’s criticism of the U.S. geopolitical agenda comes at a time when it is necessary for the Treasury Department to influence the negotiation of the foreign debt that continues to be stuck between the Argentine government and the powerful BlackRock fund, which has direct access to the Oval Office.
“And the U.S. broke the UNSAR and created PROSUR. They also did everything possible to make CELAC disappear. And they didn’t get that either. Now they went for the IDB and the entire continent came out to support the US, for the first time in history, also to preside over the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). And we have been left out of that support by two countries: Mexico and us,” said Alberto Fernández in a video conference organized by the University of Buenos Aires (UBA) and led by Lula Da Silva.
A setback from hard Kirchnerism could once again drive the Peronist spine away from Cristina’s space so that an option will flourish in 2023. If the country were lucky enough to escape populism through an electoral process, the next government would have to be very clear about the failure of Macri’s model and make the necessary reforms from day one.
