No summons, invalid Notice of Assignment for US Judge Thomas Griesa, and denial of public access to the authentication records in a court that is notorious for fraud in banking matters... Conduct of the US courts over the past decade should be deemed an unannounced regime change in the United States. It is also central to abuse of the people of the United States and failing banking regulation. In the case of NML v Republic of Argentina the US courts reach beyond the territorial US, to rob the people of Argentina through fraud of medieval style and proportions.


OccupyTLV, September 6 - f or the second time in 15 years, the US is causing the collapse of the Argentinian economy, inflicting poverty and misery on millions. [i]

In 2001, Argentina showed "a decline without parallel". The economic collapse of Argentina wiped out the middle class and raised the level of poverty to 57.5%. Millions in Argentina were thrown into unemployment, poverty and hunger. That, after being Latin America's star in the 1990s. [ii]

The collapse of the Argentinian economy puzzled many.... But others offered explanations: In his book "Globalization and Its Discontent", none other than Nobel prize winner Joseph Stieglitz raised the suspicion that the collapse of the Argentinian economy was the handiwork of Stanley Fischer in his capacity as a senior officer of the International Monetary Fund (later Governor of Bank of Israel, today No 2 in the US Federal Reserve), at the service of US agencies. [ iii ]

Others state it more clearly: Central to the collapse was the implementation of neo-liberal policies which enabled the swindle of billions of dollars by foreign banks and corporations.

In 2014, the fraud is more brazen. In litigation in the US District Court, Southern District of New York, which is opined here as fraud, Judge Griesa issued rulings, orders, and judgments, which doom the Argentinian economy.

Law review summarized the case as follows: [iv]

In 2001, Argentina defaulted on more than ninety-five billion dollars in external debt. At the time, this constituted the largest sovereign default in history. Argentina initiated two restructurings in 2005 and 2010, allowing holders of defaulted bonds to exchange their bonds for new debt at a rate of twenty-five to twenty-nine cents on the dollar, thus restructuring more than ninety-one percent of the foreign debt on which it had defaulted in 2001. Hedge funds specializing in trading distressed sovereign debt, such as Elliott Associates, purchased large amounts of Argentinian debt at a significant discount on the secondary market, and "held out"--they refused to join the restructurings and sought full collection of their debt.

In February 2012, Judge Griesa of the District Court for the Southern District of New York issued orders enjoining Argentina from making payments on its restructured 2005 and 2010 debt without making ratable payments to NML Capital, a distressed-debt hedge fund affiliated with Elliott Associates. In October 2012, a unanimous panel of the Second Circuit substantially affirmed the orders.6 Argentina was not to make full payment on its restructured debt without also making full payment to the holdout plaintiffs... The decision, therefore, would seem to doom consensual sovereign debt restructuring.
