'Poor Immigrant' to United States,
Born in Chicago, IL.
Hat Tip to "Socrates" for the Google Way Back link to Markos Moulitsas interview with El Salvador's La Prensa Gráfica online newspaper (in Spanish). Fortunately, I graduated magna cum laude in Spanish from Rhode Island College and have communicated in Spanish in Chile, Peru, Columbia, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras and Mexico. (I've never been to El Salvador and, having discovered Markos C. Alberto Moulitsas Zúñiga (MAMZ's) right-wing pressure group connections there, I don't think I ever will be welcomed into El Salvador and then welcomed back out again.
Markos C. Alberto Moulitsas Zúñiga (MAMZ) must believe he's the only bilingual person in the United States who can compare what's in Spanish-language papers with what MAMZ tells us in the USA. Does he think Americans are illiterate, does he believe we're all stupid, or both? I don't know if MAMZ can read Spanish, but I know that he knows that I can.
If you look at the article from El Salvador's La Prensa Gráfica online newspaper (see screenshots above and below) from Google's "way back machine"), you will see four blatant lies that Markos C. Alberto Moulitsas Zúñiga (MAMZ or "Kos" of DailyKos), told to the Spanish-language online newspaper, La Prensa Gráfica.
In this conversation with writer Jesús Henríquez, who is quoting MAMZ, MAMZ says (see underlined in red in the screenshot above):
Eu não tengo dinheiro. ("I don't have money.")
Yo no vengo de una familia famosa o poderosa. ("I don't come from a famous or powerful family.")
Yo era un inmigrante en Estados Unidos. ("I was an immigrant in the United States.")
Lie Number One: How can MAMZ say, "I don't have money," when his "family hotel," the Jaltepeque Suites Hotel, is on the wealthiest and longest stretch of beachfront property in El Salvador and the hotel charges $140.00 US Dollars per night for a hotel room?
When MAMZ says in his wedding album that his festivities were held at his "family hotel", either he is using the word "family" very loosely or he thinks that being part of a family that charges $140.00 US Dollars per night in Central America qualifies as not having "any money," even though that amount of money is roughly one tenth the family income of most Salvadoran families for a year!
In any case, MAMZ either had sufficient money or sufficient free use of the "family" hotel to host his entire wedding party there and take boat trips.
That's lie number one: "I don't have any money", (but my family owns beachfront land and charges $140.00 USD per night for a hotel room.
Lie Number Two: that he doesn't come from a famous family. The same Carlos Eduardo Delgado Zúniga, owner of the international Baja Salt Group (see screenshot immediately below; and he is listed in Salvadoran Government documents as "manager" of the Zúñiga family hotel; is also the president of CASATUR (the Salvadoran National Tourism Association); as well as president of the Salvadoran Hotel Association. Just look him up in the Europa World Book! (See screenshots below.)
Anyone who is listed in the Europa World Book is "famous", particularly if he is also owner of a Central American salt distributorship with operations on five continents and president of a nation's tourism and hotel business groups. The inevitable conclusion is that MAMZ lied with respect to whether he came from a "famous family."
Lie Number Three: It is obvious simply from the above that Lic. Carlos Eduardo Delgado Zúñiga is powerful throughout El Salvador and the reach of his Central American salt distributorship. But he is also a Salvadoran representative to FEDECATUR, the Central American Tourism Board! If that were not enough, Lic. Carlos Eduardo Delgado Zúñiga, who also gives newspaper interviews, is also a representative to the Salvadoran National Association for Private Enterprise (ANEP), which the CIA calls a right-wing "pressure group."
In addition, Carlos Eduardo Delgado Zúñiga is a member of the “Junta Directiva” of the “Sistema de Integración de Centroamerica” (System for Integration of Central America).,
Is it possible to square all of the interlocking directorates for tourism with MAMZ statement that his family is neither famous nor powerful? In fact, the assertion that MAMZ's family is not powerful, which was a quote made to La Prensa Gráfica, is a gratuitous bold-faced lie, unless there is an underlying reason to disregard the truth in such a blatant and public manner. There is simply no way whatsoever to square MAMZ's lie with the Internet-documented truth.
Lie number four: MAMZ says, "I was an immigrant in the United States," (see underlined in red in screenshot above) but even MAMZ's own DailyKos biography and his Wikipedia page say that he was born on September 11, 1971, in Chicago, Illinois. However, the article he wrote for the American Prospect mentions Chicago, but does not mention that he was born there. It only says that he had a "funny accent", intentionally leaving the impression that he was born somewhere else. Is it possible for MAMZ to write truthfully that he is "an immigrant in the United States" AND that he was born in Chicago, IL? MAMZ says it is possible, however, the US Code disagrees with him:
The following shall be nationals and citizens of the United States at birth:(a) a person born in the United States
2). Markos C. Alberto Moulitsas ZÚÑIGA was born in Chicago, not in El Salvador. Therefore, he is a US citizen and is NOT and never was an immigrant, in spite of his habitual assertions to the contrary.
I simply don't understand why Markos C. Alberto Moulitsas Zúñiga (MAMZ) tells so many lies about himself and his family that are so easily disproved. Although he has never provided this identity information, with respect to the names of his parents, to a United States newspaper to the best of my knowledge, La Prensa Gráfica states as fact that, "Markos Moulitsas es hijo de María Teresa Zúniga de Funes, salvadoreña, y de Markos Moulitsas, griego."Maria Elizabeth ZÚÑIGA de Delgado is listed in Salvadoran Government documents as “Alternate Administrator” of Proturo, S.A. de S.V., which is also known as Baja Salt Group where, once again, Lic. Carlos Eduardo Delgado Zúñiga is listed as"Central American Distributor."
Is it possible that MAMZ says, "I don't have any money" because he doesn't want to pay his income taxes? Or is it because being a poor and humble immigrant from Central America is part of his CIA cover story, which he learned (but not very well), during his self-acknowledged two-year training period, from 2001 until 2003, during the time when he started his DailyKos blog.
Markos C. Alberto Moulitsas Zúñiga is a self-made man, an immigrant born in Chicago who doesn't have any money, although his family owns Baja Salt Group, Proturo C.A. de S.V., the Jaltepeque Suites Hotel, and the Club Jewel of the Pacific, a hotel and condominium conglomerate. In a word, MAMZ is a perennial liar.
