    Maybe he's just trying to avoid getting his ass kicked by the superpower of the hemisphere.

    Neither says much for being able to trust him, but the former is slightly better than the latter.
    Raised Catholic but probably marginally or just culturally. Severely abused by his father. Not sure about the mother. No connection to anything Christian in that. Not parents who exemplified it and a church full of Marxist pedos. He obviously had a vacuum to fill and looked to something he thought he was connected to. Pity.
    My two daughters and I were gang-raped by some of the Newcomers. It landed us in the hospital for 3 weeks as several bones were broken. I don't blame them, it was a sexual emergency and I wasn't about to go all white privilege and deny them the release they needed, especially after being stuck in a hotel for months. I see the Newcomers as family now. They are on our side and will help us stop Trump. It is a small price to pay. Anything but Trump.

    It's possible but I don't think so. He seems to be a true believer in the NATO paradigm. My take on that - and I could be way off - is it's his hatred of communism that accounts for it. If that's it, it's blinded him to everything that's gone down since the collapse of the USSR and the Warsaw Pact. I see that mentality (cold war) all over with the situation in Ukraine and I find it intellectually lazy.

He's pro NATO and all that that means ("rules based order"). Not what I would have expected.

    Milei hates China (and Russia). That's been clear since before he was even elected.

    I don't like it at all (the "sucking up to NATO" bit, not the anti-commie bit), but I don't think it's difficult to understand. Compared to the U.S. hegemony (which only seems to understand how to "bomb or bribe" other countries into cooperation), China excels at "winning friends and influencing people" (for example, China is one of Argentina's biggest creditors). This NATO suck-uppery is probably a hedge against that. (It occurs to me that Milei may also be hoping - as a kind of "side bonus" - to score some brownie points he can try to cash in on the Falklands issue. He has recently made remarks regarding his "diplomatic roadmap" on that matter.)

    I'm 100% with him on hating commies but I find it tragic that Russia, who is not a communist country any longer is still saddled with that. As for NATO, I don't know how far he's gonna get with any of ideas about those islands since the UK is an actual NATO member. Those islands are all Brits and they don't want to be part of Argentina. Given Argentina's history and problems, who can blame them?

    Russia is still fascist/authoritarian, and it's ruled by an autocratic ex-KGBer. I can't really blame any leader of a country that has been pretty well $#@!ed over by Marxism & Marxist ideology for holding a grudge and/or being paranoid. (For example, I don't like Milei's pro-Ukraine stances and rhetoric, but I strongly suspect they are driven much more by ant-Russian sentiment than they are by pro-Ukraine sentiment.)

    I'm skeptical he'll get anywhere on the Falklands thing. But it's not a matter of how far you or I think he can get. It's a matter of how far he (correctly or incorrectly) thinks he can get. And who knows? It might turn out to be worth more to the UK and NATO for them to sink their hooks into Argentina than it is for the UK to continue holding the Falklands. (And in that or any similar case, what the Falklanders themselves may or may not want won't have much if anything to do with it. If it somehow does come to that, it's not like they can force Britain to keep them.)

    Russia has no history, like the US, of liberty or the early US republic. It's so vastly different with a mind blowing history and a set of problems entirely different from anything our own country has faced. When the USSR collapsed, the Russian people, in a system of communism up until that point, were looted by opportunistic predators who were fast ruining anything that was left and establishing a Jewish Mafia state. Putin saved Russia and it's prosperous and a lot freer than it's ever been in it's entire history. In a system like ours (or Europe's), it would quickly devolve back into communism, imo.

    There is no way in hell the UK will ever cede those islands. No way. It's not like some other commonwealth state like, say, in the Caribbean. The Falklands are all Brits. That makes a huge difference. I see Milei's desires on it akin to to Russia trying to get Alaska back.

    *shrug* Tell it to Javier.

    (And Hong Kong was worth a hell of a lot more to Britain than the Falklands are, but the Brits didn't have much problem selling them out.)

    Yes, but there was a lease on Hong Kong and it expired. I don't think war with China over it was an option. They did go to war over the Falklands. It seems like a strange thing for Milei to get fixated on and if he's thinking of making an alliance with NATO to kind of protect Argentina is any Argentine move to try and take them back, he should shut up about it and secure the NATO alliance first

    My point is that the British claim on Hong Kong was extremely valuable to them (and such "leases" have been broken over much less), but they still gave it up despite its great value because they didn't deem it to be worth the potential cost of keeping it (such as open hostilities or even war with China).

    Likewise, if Britain regards (or comes to regard) giving up the Falklands - which is worth far, far less to them than Hong Kong was - as being "worth it" (such as by being part of the price for bringing Argentina more firmly under the thumb of NATO), then there's no particular reason why they couldn't or wouldn't do so. (The fact that they were willing to fight over the Falklands in 1982 is irrelevant to this point - they had nothing to gain by just letting Argentina forcibly take the Falklands from them then.)

    Also, "shut[ting] up about it and secur[ing] the NATO alliance first" would defeat the entire purpose of making the Falklands a NATO-alliance bargaining chip (assuming such a gambit is even part of Milei's angle in the first place - at this point, it's merely idle speculation on my part, due to the coincidental timing of Milei's "NATO alliance" talk with his Falklands "diplomatic roadmap" talk).

    I have no idea how much Britain values its possession of the Falklands - but there is some price at which it could be "worth it" to them. I am doubtful that Milei will be able to meet that price, whatever it might be (and I am even more doubtful that he should, even if he could) - but to think that it doesn't exist because of Britain's honorable and selfless devotion to the wishes of the people of the Falklands is, frankly, naively sentimental hooey (just ask Hong Kong).

    Argentina (or Milei) needs or wants NATO more than NATO needs Argentina - maybe. If so, remaining quiet about intentions to grab the Falklands would seem like the better move because once Argentina is in (whatever the association and "in" means), NATO would not want to lose them over British territory - maybe. Then again, you might be right because of what's going on with Ukraine and Russia and NATO taking the position against old territory being taken back. They may firmly come down on the side of the Brits and oppose Milei on that. In that case, you're right that he can use it as a bargaining chip to give NATO access to Argentina, if NATO wants it. I guarantee, though, the UK will under no circumstances give up the Falklands. I agree that Hong Kong was very, very valuable but Hong Kong was overwhelmingly populated Chinese people. The Falklands are as British as England. Prince Andrew fought that in war and there are families alive who lost family member servicemen in that war. Plus, they had that had referendum affirming the people there want to remain under British control. Maybe when everyone touched by that war is dead, it might change hands, but not before that.

    I find it dismissive of the will of the people who actually live on those islands that Milei would be entertaining this idea and I'd like to know what he's thinking. Is it just because proximity or does he have some kind of plans he envisions for a base or mining or whatever. Right now, there are penguins and other cool wildlife that inhabit those islands. I hope it stays that way, however it turns out.

    Javier Mileis so far polices in Argentina arent working as the polices are hurting the working class.
    Yet this is the position Mileis taken over more about.

    China was also a much bigger threat in a war than Argentina would be, and Hong Kong was much father away from the UK than the Falklands are.

    Milei says Argentina just had its first budget surplus in 16 years after gutting government bloat
    https://notthebee.com/article/milei-...us-in-16-years
    {Commodore Vanderbilt | 23 April 2024}

    Well, who would have guessed it?

    The man who ran on slashing the government just achieved the unthinkable.

    Javier Milei announced that for the first time in 16 years, Argentina's government has a budget surplus.

    It worked:

    https://twitter.com/CitizenFreePres/...22516714520878

    In the first quarter of 2024, the South American country recorded a budget surplus of about 275 billion pesos (some $309 million at the official rate), he told national TV late Monday.

    This amounted to a surplus of 0.2 percent of GDP.

    "This is the first quarter with a financial surplus since 2008," said Milei, referring to his left-wing rival Cristina Kirchner's first year in the presidency.

    Milei, who took office in December, boasted of "a feat of historic significance on a global scale."

    Long live freedom, indeed!

    When he came into office, Milei immediately cut the number of government-run ministries and departments in half. Because at least half of Argentina's government was pointless.

    And did the country fall apart? Were there riots in the street?



    "If the state does not spend more than it collects and does not issue (money), there is no inflation. This is not magic," the self-described "anarcho-capitalist" said.

    This dude gets it.

    It's not magic. Everyone gets it. But he actually did it.

    VIVA LA LIBERTAD!

    Now let's take a look closer to home:

    It's only a QUARTERLY budget surplus, and it's only the first since 2008.

    Are you really such a babe in the woods that you think nobody pays people to protest? Dude. Right now there are protesters all over Columbia U all staying in brand new, identical tents.

    Are you trying to tell me that's organic? Going to give me a coincidence theory to cover it?

    Of course there are protests. They're probably synchronized with the international MSM's visits, too, so the powers that be don't have to pay overtime.

    Amazing how often over the course of my life, misinformation has been presented to me in that exact way.

    Play along or I'm not one of the cool kids? Fine. I'm not one of the cool kids. I'm an old fart who is sick of paying people to make noise and inconvenience their neighbors through taxation.

    Students and faculty are protesting. Beats going to class, whether in Argentina or New York City.

    With odd old ends stol’n out of holy writ;
    And seem a saint, when most I play the devil.”
    ~ William Shakespeare, Richard III


    How easy it seems to me that people are so readily deceived, and that extreme gullibility among the masses remains as the primary attitude evident. I do realize that this is not uncommon, but it is amazingly confounding, after thousands of years of continuous lies by the ruling State; absurdity beyond reason to be sure. But still they vote to choose (have selected) a master to lord over them. Will this idiocy never end? Now, there is a new ‘Saint’ in town, and as depicted by weak-minded so-called freedom advocates, he is alluded to as a ‘self-described’ Anarcho-capitalist. This is Javier Milei, the new god of ‘libertarian’ type posers. Murray Rothbard would roll in his grave at such an idiotic pronouncement as this.

    Yet another politician, the lowest form of human possible, is lauded and bowed down to by the fake alternative crowd, who claim to be the freedom society of the peasant class. Those being fooled by these deceitful political imposters have become tiring to say the least, as one after another of these trimmers takes his place at the top of the power pyramid, only to affect his personal and political desires on others, and sees his need for power over the many as his highest purpose. This is always at the expense of his subject class. There are many of these plotting chameleons who reach high positions of power; Trump comes immediately to mind, but in fact, there will always be more to come, as they gleefully follow in the footsteps of their duplicitous predecessors.

    This Milei character is no different, but he has been able to trick the alternative media into a frothing state of undue worship, and has taken center stage by storm, even in the face of complete and total contradiction. First and foremost, he is certainly no Anarcho-capitalist. That term is reserved for true anarchists who abhor government and the State, and capitalists, who in the real sense of the word, believe only in actual free markets; meaning private markets without government or government interference or control. Milei is neither of these things, and in fact is the exact opposite. This can be easily uncovered by merely observing every action he has proposed, mandated, or initiated.

    He made many claims while campaigning for the highest position in government, something no real anarchist could ever carry out, making promise after promise to free the people, and make them prosperous, while claiming he would tear down the very government he was seeking to control. Hypocrisy at this level is saved for the most corrupt among us, as no sane or honest person could pull it off without losing his soul. What that means of course, is that he had no soul to begin with, but was seeking a position that he was at the same time condemning. This is a common practice of politicians, and is double-speak of course, but could only be meant to fool the weak-minded proletariat, and claimed ‘intellectual’ liberty frauds, and never be a sincere objective. The proof is in his actions, and they are oh so telling of lies, corruption, manipulation, and power-seeking.

    Milei took office in December of 2023, with grand plans to overhaul the Argentine government. His first order of business, as proclaimed by Milei during his campaign, would be to shut down completely, and abolish, the central bank, which is Banco Central de la República of Argentina. Did he do so? Of course not, but he did place some of the same past criminal heads in government, at the helm of that evil institution. He immediately appointed the insider Santiago Bausili as Governor and head of the Board of Directors. Bausili had been with J.P. Morgan for 11 years, and Deutsche Bank for 9 years, responsible for international capital markets in Latin America, handling hedging and derivative (unbridled leverage) instruments. Before then, he was Secretary of the Ministry of Finance and the Treasury of Argentina. He was in the middle of the latest downfall and economic destruction of Argentina over many years, but he was the immediate and first choice of Milei to head the central bank. So much for “abolishing” the Fed, and saying that it was a “Patricia Bullrich, and insider who ran in opposition against Melei, and is the president of Propuesta Republicana, (Republican Proposal) which was made up of the ruling coalition during Mauricio Macri’s presidency from 2015 to 2019. He attended the World Economic Forum seeking investment, and held meetings with the likes of Biden, David Cameron, Branson, Eric Schmidt of Google, the Queen of the Netherlands, and other globalists and CEOs. He was a disaster of course. Inflation rates exceeding 40% during his tenure were common, and Bullrich now has the same position with Milei. There are other suspect cabinet members who have been appointed by Milei, including Luis Caputo, but what else is new? His is a cabinet of insiders with close ties to past Argentinian failures.

    But it gets much worse. Milei has tied himself strongly to Israel, and the fanatical and evil murdering Netanyahu, even to the point of converting to Judaism, making Argentina one of the most pro-Zionist supporting countries. This is happening at a time when Israel is committing mass genocide against all Palestinians, and fomenting horrendous regional war that could escalate into world war. As far as I see it, this is a political scam on the part of Milei.

    In the midst of claiming to being ‘libertarian,’ Milei has sold his soul to Israel, has destabilized Argentina’s own currency in favor of a failing U.S. dollar; essentially tying Argentina to the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank run by private and government criminals and manipulators like Larry Fink of the evil Blackrock. This could lead to massive dollarization of Argentina to the detriment of their own money, and could also lead to the outside privatization of Argentina’s economy at the hands of the U.S., Israel, and all their fascist partners. This is an incredibly dangerous situation for Argentina, as satellites are now mapping out large swaths of this country and others in that region, for globalized control of all natural resources.

    When Milei took office, 60% of Argentina’s population was in poverty, and Milei immediately devalued the currency by an additional 50%, leading to a much worse situation for the entire population. In the meantime, Milei has requested to join NATO, to achieve a more intrusive western alliance so as to gain a military guarantee, hoping to get military support at the expense of U.S. citizens and the West.

    At this point, Milei should refer to himself as a self-described dictator, and never an anarcho-capitalist, who has seemingly decided to control Argentina by legislative and non-legislative fiat. He is no ‘libertarian,’ even though so-called modern ‘libertarianism,’ is just another arm of an abusive prevailing governing structure, and he is not and never has been an anarchist at any level. Those who continue to applaud these fascist tyrants, are making a great mistake in judgement, but when Trump is ‘elected,’ (selected) the writing on the wall will be telling, and in lock-step with these same type of policies. Criminal all.

    The fooling of the voting fools will likely never end, as the herds of the peon class will continue to seek rule. This it seems, is the way of the world, and what a sad commentary this is concerning those beings (humans) who are supposed to be the most intelligent life on earth. That is a joke my friends, but not one worthy of laughter.

    Milei only received 29.99% of the vote in the First Round. He is far from popular.
