As readers here are aware, the global Ponzi economy and the institutional
investors predators in control has eyes on Argentina, and much more. Valiantly Argentina continues to fight for sovereignty from Wall Street-NY-DC control…
A very disturbing and interesting crime story indeed!
I feel the need to share, as a reminder to us and perhaps news to some, Greg Palast’s investigation relating to current Argentina, and his reports are very revealing.
Billionaire Paul Singer, the man who manages the fund and lead plaintiff NML of Argentina, in the conflict over the Argentina’s troubled debt (some claim it is in default).

And by the way, I didn’t give Singer the name “Vulture.”
His own banker buddies did—with admiration in their voices.
Clean water for the Congo? Forget it—Singer and his vulture colleagues grabbed it all.
In Africa, I spoke with Winston Tubman, the former deputy secretary-general of the UN. He asked me to ask the Vulture and his cronies, “Do you know you are causing babies to die?”
It’s legal, it’s sick, it’s Singer.
Well, not legal in most of the civilized world. Britain, Germany, Holland, and many others have outlawed Singer’s repo-man seizures. In Europe, Singer is a financial outlaw. But in the USA, he’s a “job creator.”
Singer The Vulture gets loads of positive press, in the New York Times especially, where the corpse-chewer offered an open checkbook to any state Republican who would vote for the right of gays to marry. Don’t think of this as an unselfish act of moral courage: it was more droit du seigneur, the right of the Lords of the Manor to deflower the virgins of choice on their lands. The Vulture’s son wanted to marry another man, and so Vulture would buy the New York State Legislature to approve the nuptials. (That almost all Singer’s money would go to national candidates who would make gay marriage illegal, well, money is thicker than blood.)
But, under press cover of funding the GOP for social rights, Singer’s influence in the state legislature has paid back a hundredfold. He lobbied the legislature to change the law on the calculation of interest charges on his vulture loan-sharking operation, a change that will guarantee him hundreds of millions of dollars more from the Congo.
The stakes in the legal-financial-political war are enormous, yet the real battle is hidden from the public view.
A titanic struggle had now been set in motion, a battle over billions, between the Obama administration and the wealthiest men in America, the hedge-fund billionaires, all out of sight of the public and press.
Argentina’s consul called me from DC, stunned by the Clinton move. WTF? Did I have any info?
I said, this action goes way, way beyond Argentina. Obama and Clinton told the court that the Vulture was undermining the safety of the entire world financial system, destabilizing every financial rescue mission from South America to Greece to the Congo. (What would Romney do? His expected replacement for Clinton would be his chief foreign policy advisor Dan Senor—currently on the payroll of . . . Paul Singer.)
