La Unasur: tiranos de izquierda - lo dijo la Mary O´Grady del WSJ

En un evento organizado por el think tank conservador "The Heritage Foundation"
y su empleador el WSJ. Mary (2da, izq).

Mary Anastasia O´Grady - o Mary
AnestesiaGrave como me gusta decirle- es una columnista del diario Wall Street Journal, que se especializa en hacer artículos sobre lationamérica desde el comfort de su silla sin salir de la redacción.

La última de la O´Grady: la UnaSur está "dominada por tiranos de izquierda"

Where the FARC Goes to Fatten Up

The U.S. State Department said Mr. Chávez's decision to break with Colombia was petulant and happily it also said that it would "endorse Colombia's proposals." This will help the chances for a verification committee at the OAS. It also explains why Ecuador and Argentina have both expressed interest in taking the matter to the South American multilateral forum known as Unasur, where Mr. Uribe will be outnumbered by leftist tyrants.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

¿Cuál es la trayectoria de O´Grady?
En 2002, el diputado (representante) norteamericano Jan Schakowsky (Demócrata de Illinois) sacó un comunicado quejándose por
"el absurdo artículo de Mary Anastasia O´Grady en el WSJ" donde O´Grady decía que quienes reclamaban por el respeto a los derechos humanos en Colombia, estaban del lado de los terroristas.

Palabras textuales: "“O'Grady used tired tactics and sloppy reporting to brand people who defend human rights as enemy sympathizers.”

2003- Brasil. Mary Anastesia O´Grave, prediciendo la "falta de futuro" en Brasil y el tremendo ataque a los derechos de propiedad intelectual del maléfico Lula a los laboratorios dueños de patentes de las drogas para el tratamiento del HIV.

There´s no such thing as a free HIV cocktail
A liberal Brazilian economist painted me a grim picture about his country's future. The dark clouds foretold not a looming catastrophe, he maintained, but rather perpetual mediocrity.So far, my soothsayer hasn't been wrong, and the old joke about Brazil's bright future that never seems to arrive still makes the rounds. The South American giant has lately headed off an Argentine-style debt debacle, but that's faint praise. Gross domestic product contracted 0.2% in 2003. Economic growth in 2001 and 2002, at 1.3% and 1.9%, was not much better. Despite an industrialized economy and an army of sophisticated business minds, Brazil still muddles along in underdevelopment and persistent poverty.(...)Like many a socialist, Lula appears to also believe that government can take what it likes in the interest of the public good.

The contradiction between property grabs and the desire to attract investment came into focus in March when the government announced a new industrial development plan. Four anointed "strategic sectors," two new bureaucracies designed to implement initiatives and an allocation of $5.2 billion are all part of this effort to revive the slumping economy.

Let's put aside for a moment the lunacy of trotting out the tired notion of industrial policy and sending the poor Brazilian population up the hill like Sisyphus trying to make it work. The idea that Brazil's central planners believe they can pick winners is bad enough. But what borders on black comedy is that one of the chosen "strategic sectors" is the pharmaceutical industry, a market where property rights have been battered beyond recognition under the Lula government.

Brazil has been leading a campaign among certain members of the World Trade Organization against intellectual property rights, threatening makers of AIDS remedies with patent confiscation and holding up patent certification.

Yet, by designating the pharmaceutical industry a key strategic sector, it hopes to not only develop businesses that will fabricate generic medicines but also attract a fertile, cutting-edge biomedical industry.(...)Has Lula found a way to win popularity at the expense of the drug companies, their employees and their shareholders? Don't bet on it. Brazil seems fated to remain the "land of the future" for many years more."

2009 - México. Dicho por un reconocido periodistay autor Norteamericano/Mexicano

"Not that I think O’Grady is a good analyst… exactly the opposite. She’s even a better barometer of what Latin Americans are NOT going to do than the Miami Herald’s Andres Oppenheimer. Oppenheimer accepts as gospel whatever the Latin American right-wing says, but sometimes the rightist win elections. O’Grady makes shit up."

Richard Grabman en su blog en inglés, sobre México - Mexfiles.net


El blog venezolano (también en inglés) muy bueno BoRev.net la describió como "professional Wall Street Journal crazy lady Mary Anastasia O'Grady" y la premió con el Guinness 2009 por "haber desacertado en cada uno de los hechos, sobre la OEA y la tiranía"

2005 - Argentina - "Doctrina socialista"
Wall Street Journal: "Doctrina socialista" en Argentina

" En una nota de opinión, el diario The Wall Street Journal indicó
que, aunque la Argentina pueda resolver en forma exitosa el canje de la
deuda, aún quedará
"un caos de contratos rotos y doctrina
El periódico de Estados Unidos incluyó en su edición
del viernes una dura crítica al país, firmada por su columnista Mary
Anastasia O´Grady. "


Para el yanqui de Inca Kola News, O´Grady manifiesta una "ignorancia serial sobre los acontecimientos de América Latina. - "serial ignorance of Latin American affairs"



  • When she writes about Ecuador, her blatantly false accusations piss off the country's President so much that he slaps a lawsuit on her paper's tush.

Otros bloggers en inglés han dicho de la O´Grady:
" The Wall Street Journal seems to have twigged to the fact that their leading "expert" on Latin America, Mary Anastasia O'Grady, is nothing more than a discredited hack parachuted in from the Heritage Foundation to promote far-right "values" at the expense of honesty and reality."

¿Me gano algún premio "brújula de oro", "periodismo de anticipación de platino" si exhibo que yo ESCRIBI SOBRE ESTA PELIGROSA MUJER, allá por 2005, y la nombré "la Anne Coulter para latinoamérica en estado embrionario"?

Seguramente que no. :-)

PD: ¿Cuál es el background de Mary Anastasia O´Grady, antes de ser vocera de lo que el Cato Institute y la Heritage Foundation quieren difundir? Ya lo dije en 2005, fué durante 10 años "analista de futuros" de una empresa de bolsa y MERRYL LYNCH. Una persona imparcial y siempre en contacto con la pobreza y la realidad latinoamericana, seguro.
