The US and Washington-controlled globalist structures are trying to prevent the victory of left-wing patriots in the elections in Argentina.
Two weeks later, on October 27, 2019, a presidential election will be held in Argentina. Ten people aspire to the post of head of state, but the main struggle will unfold between the current president of the country, the leader of the liberal coalition “Together for Change” (Juntos por el cambio) Mauricio Macri and the nominee of the center-left bloc “Front for All” (Frente de Todos) Alberto Fernandez.
During the primary elections held on August 11, 2019, opposition candidate Fernandez won a landslide victory with more than 47% of the vote. The current president, Macri, scored a little over 32%. To win the first round of the main stage of the election, the candidate for the presidency needs to get more than 45% of the vote or more than 40%, provided that the gap with the second place exceeds 10%.
The victory in the presidential elections in Argentina of opposition Fernandez caused a real panic in the United States and Washington-controlled globalist structures. The world money-lenders, to whom Macri was assigned the country, began to actively pressure Argentina in order to prevent leftist revenge. The day after the results of the primaries were published, the national peso exchange rate fell by 30%, the outflow of capital began from the country. All sorts of financial experts, representing the IMF service team, began to talk about the fact that Argentina is waiting for another full-blown default.
So what worried the globalists?
Oppositionist Alberto Fernandez is a former Prime Minister of Argentina and a member of the Peronist Hustisialist Party, whose leader is former President Christina Kirchner. In the 2015 election, Kirschner, who held the presidency for two consecutive terms, did not have the right to run, and her nominee Daniel Sioli lost a small margin in the second round to the US protege, neoliberal and block leader
“Cambiemos” Mauricio Macri, who had previously served as mayor of Buenos Aires for eight years.
What Macrism brought to Argentina
Macri’s domestic and foreign policy was fundamentally different from the policies of his predecessors, the spouses Nestor and Christina Kirchner. The rejection of protectionist measures in the economy, the abolition of export duties, the curtailment of many social programs for the population, high inflation, an increase in electricity tariffs by 4-6 times, the devaluation of the national currency, an increase in the key rate to 70% – all this threw the third economy in Latin America into a state of deep recession, caused a catastrophic impoverishment of the population and an increase in political and social tension.
The situation was aggravated by enslaving dependence on the IMF, which in 2018 approved the granting of a loan of $ 57 billion to Argentina. One of the richest countries in the world, as a result of neoliberal reforms, found itself in the position of a beggar with an outstretched hand. However, the funds that could be used to revive the national economy, the Argentines did not see. The received tranches went to the accounts of foreign investors and creditors, driving the country even deeper into the economic abyss and the debt hole.
In foreign policy, Macri abandoned the sovereign course of Kirchner, who was characterized, among other things, by friendly relations with Russia, in favor of absolute neocolonial dependence on the United States. The Americans received not only economic preferences in the form of free access to the Argentine market and the right to buy up the most valuable assets, but also a generous offer in the form of the deployment of three military bases on the territory of the country – in the province of Neuquen, where the shale gas deposits are located, in the province of Misiones, bordering with Brazil and Paraguay, as well as in Tierra del Fuego, from where a truly unique opportunity is given to exercise control over the Strait of Magellan and Antarctica. This is not to mention the fact that Buenos Aires became an active participant in the Latin American “Lima group” organized by Washington, whose tasks included the blockade of Venezuela to overthrow President Nicolas Maduro.
Fernandez, in the event of his victory in the election, has already announced his readiness to withdraw Argentina from the pro-American “Lima group” and together with
Mexico and Uruguay advocate for a peaceful resolution to the conflict in Venezuela through dialogue between the legitimate President Maduro and the opposition. Venezuelan-friendly countries, including Russia, China and Cuba, support this view.
“Argentina should be among the countries that want to help Venezuelans find a way out. Being in the “Lim group” contradicts this, ”said Fernandez at a meeting with Uruguay’s presidential candidate from the center-left Broad Front, Daniel Martinez.
He also promises to abolish unpopular market reforms and stimulate the economy by increasing social spending on salaries and pensions. At the same time, Fernandez intends to maintain a balanced budget and prevent a forecasted default.
Needless to say, such initiatives do not cause enthusiasm in Washington, where the Monroe doctrine is still adhered to, consider Latin America as their “backyard” and perceive any front on the part of Latin American politicians as a threat to their national security.
Kirschner returns: how Washington’s nightmare came true
However, Fernandez himself appears to be a rather flexible figure, under which, under certain conditions, you can put pressure on him, make him obey the rules of the game established by the global player, and thus discredit all the ideological heirs of Juan Domingo Peron. The globalists panic is that in tandem with Fernandez is the very unsinkable Christina Kirchner, in which Argentina successfully conducted a socially oriented and, most importantly, sovereign course aimed at protecting state interests, supporting the national producer and social protection for the poor. In foreign policy, the country maintained close relations with the left governments of Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador and Brazil, and maintained friendly relations with Russia and China.
Typical examples of Russian-Argentinean cooperation were cooperation in the field of nuclear energy and the signing of a memorandum between Gazprom and the Argentine National State Oil and Gas Corporation on the Russian company’s participation in the development of Argentine oil and gas fields. Also in 2014
Putin and Kirchner launched the round-the-clock broadcast of the Spanish-language version of Russia Today. Two years later, the new Macri government, in order to please its American patrons, stopped the free broadcasting of RT, which in Washington is considered “the main mouthpiece of Russian propaganda.”
One can not say a few words about the position of Christina Kirchner on the reunification of Crimea with Russia. Argentina abstained in the UN vote on the non-recognition of the Crimean referendum. At the same time, Kirchner convicted the West of double standards, drawing parallels with the situation around the Malvinas (Falkland) Islands, which are recognized as the overseas territory of Great Britain.
If Fernandez wins, Christina Kirchner will take the post of vice president, which guarantees at least a partial return to Kirchnerism in the economy and the rejection of the role of the American puppet in foreign policy.
It is no accident that during the presidency of Kirchner and the last four years, when the Peronists went to the opposition, the neoliberal-controlled media actively denounced Kirchner, accusing her of corruption and all possible sins. Curious documents were published by WikiLeaks: back when Makri was the capital’s mayor, he had close ties with the American establishment and demanded more active external pressure on the Kirchner government from his patrons. In particular, in January 2010, in a conversation with the former US ambassador to Buenos Aires, Macri complained about “too soft”, in his opinion, Washington’s attitude to the Argentine government and asked for help in demonizing Kirchner.
In order to discredit the ex-president, depriving her of senatorial immunity, followed by imprisonment or at least a ban on political activities against Christina Kirchner, criminal prosecution was initiated (following the example of ex-president of Brazil Lula da Silva who is also objectionable to Americans). Macri himself in one of his speeches accused his predecessor of having left him a “heavy legacy”. True, Kirschner did not reach into her pocket for words and invited the neoliberal to return this heritage back to her.
US ready to plunge Argentina into chaos to avoid yet another geopolitical defeat
And now Washington and its global financial institutions under its control are organizing direct intervention in the Argentinean elections in order to prevent the victory of the Fernandez-Kirchner tandem, which will mean the next US geopolitical defeat in Latin America after the failed coup in Venezuela and the beginning of the end of the so-called “right turn”, providing the hegemony of the United States in the region.
Therefore, it is no coincidence that Trump has already expressed demonstrative support for Macri in his political confrontation with the Peronists. It should be expected that the so-called American “vulture funds”, which are buying up Argentinean debts and then through American courts demanding their immediate repayment without delay and restructuring, will actively join external pressure. In 2014, a similar situation was already the cause of technical default. Now, when Argentina is in a state of critical dependence on the IMF, this could turn out to be much more serious financial, economic and political consequences for the country and its sovereignty.
“We can expect that if Alberto Fernandez and Christina win, the IMF will arrange a complete obstruction for Argentina. The country will find itself in a financial blockade, ”said Valentin Katasonov, Doctor of Economics.
We should not exclude the US attempts to implement the Venezuelan scenario in Argentina with non-recognition of the election results and attempts to forcefully maintain the levers of government in the hands of pro-American puppets.
We wish the Argentines not to succumb to external pressure, to withstand all the tests with honor and to defend their right to implement a sovereign course.
