I guess this means the IMF aren't running the show. Anyone got anymore thoughts? I thought these guys were untouchable. I guess there must be a shadow organization. If you think about it, the IMF is not in the shadows. They might just be the front men.

Thats kind of how I see it. Mikeboyd brings up good points, but I cant help but feel that this isnt about America, as much as it is some Americans. In other words, if I go join the mob, its not fair to say America is part of the mafia. Because Im not really representing America. Im me, representing MY interests.

My own feeling is that these Americans who are part of this globalist cabal have no real loyalty to America. They influence our politicians because they can, they get them to use our military to further their ends, because they can, but it doesnt really seem fair to say this is about "America."

These people seem loyal to no one, no nation. They use us all for our resources, and Americas most popular resource for exploitation happens to be our military might, and the people who produce the tax dollars to fund it.

After all, these same people bringing Libya to its knees, or Ireland, or Greece, are also crushing the US. Bleeding us dry, and gutting our Constitution.

Well said and an amen to that. But there is a such thing as bleeding too many dry at the same time and the plan backfires because of a tad too much greed all at once.
Greed is also a form of poor impulse control IMO.

Yes I would agree with both of these statements. When you have some French guy on top of the heap at the IMF, then to say it's all the USA is just silly. The Rothschilds were behind the creation of the Fed to begin with, so I say that regardless of the US involvement, it is the Rothschilds who ultimately benefit financially, while redistributing wealth to foreign nations, but at the same time chaining them with debt. It's the same model for the USA here gone global.

Its a really good question, and if you ever make a thread on it, I will follow it. I cant figure that out myself. He is a contradiction. Unless he feels that the only way to global socialism is first through global capitalism which is doomed to failure.

Or he just understands that Capitalism and Communism are opposite sides of the same coin, and use all these Capitalist guys to undermine the global economic system.

America might have messed up arresting this guy. These guys don't get arrested. I'd be curious to see what kind of payback we get next week in the stock market.

I suggest you read:


"Today I resigned from the staff of the International Monetary Fund after over 12 years, and after 1000 days of official fund work in the field, hawking your medicine and your bag of tricks to governments and to peoples in Latin America and the Caribbean and Africa. To me, resignation is a priceless liberation, for with it I have taken the first big step to that place where I may hope to wash my hands of what in my mind's eye is the blood of millions of poor and starving peoples. Mr. Camdessus, the blood is so much, you know, it runs in rivers. It dries up too; it cakes all over me; sometimes I feel that there is not enough soap in the whole world to cleanse me from the things that I did do in your name and in the name of your predecessors, and under your official seal. "

With those words, Davison Budhoo, a senior economist with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for more than 12 years, publicly resigned in May, 1988.... www.thirdworldtraveler.com...



Structural Adjustment Policies are economic policies which countries must follow in order to qualify for new World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) loans and help them make debt repayments on the older debts owed to commercial banks, governments and the World Bank.....

SAPs generally require countries to devalue their currencies against the dollar; lift import and export restrictions; balance their budgets and not overspend; and remove price controls and state subsidies.

Devaluation makes their goods cheaper for foreigners to buy and theoretically makes foreign imports more expensive. In principle it should make the country wary of buying expensive foreign equipment. In practice, however, the IMF actually disrupts this by rewarding the country with a large foreign currency loan that encourages it to purchase imports.

Balancing national budgets can be done by raising taxes, which the IMF frowns upon, or by cutting government spending, which it definitely recommends. As a result, SAPs often result in deep cuts in programmes like education, health and social care, and the removal of subsidies designed to control the price of basics such as food and milk. So SAPs hurt the poor most, because they depend heavily on these services and subsidies....

By devaluing the currency and simultaneously removing price controls, the immediate effect of a SAP is generally to hike prices up three or four times, increasing poverty to such an extent that riots are a frequent result....

IMF (and the world bank) are very much hated by those in the know.

I hope the S.O.B. gets hung out to dry. I hope he was arrogant enough to leave DNA evidence and the police and DA honest enough to use it!

Maybe he was so used to doing this to everyone figuritively, he thought he could do it literally - since they have gotten away with it for so long anyway.

Or maybe they are going to charge him for every person the IMF has sodomized, starting with the most recent.... might take a while to get all the charges out, going one by one like this...

Damn. That is one fine resignation letter.

Not that the guy reading it probably cared. They know what they are doing.

See how easy to carry this frame out. 1. Put a note on the room he has checked into. 2. Send a paid maid whoes whole purpose is to flirt with the IMF head and make him assault her. Or at least make it look like it. That's all it takes to frame a good honest man.

TPTB may not operate the way normal chain of command and instruction. There may be some general guide lines. If the president of the US or the head of the IMF does not follow the generally drawn guide line, there is really no easy way to get rid of them. Either frame him to humiliate publically so that he/she can voluntarily quit the job. Or shoot him on the head in public like JFK assassination.

I believe he was set up to remove him from the IMF. Seriously, you think he just came out of the shower sees the maid and turns rapist so suddenly? The maid is probably being paid to tell her story.

Even if this is some kind of made for the media Coup its very strange.

There is some serious rape pathology going on here if you believe the reports.
The maid was allegedly injured when Strauss-Kahn tried to rip off her panties. That usually leaves DNA under the fingernails and is evidence the sex was non consensual. There was also the rush to get out of the country apparently boarding the first France bound plane he could get tickets for. The IMF committee have already named a replacement so they don't expect him back any time soon. I'm a little surprised he plead not guilty to the charges of rape but maybe rough sex like this is not considered rape in France?

The nice thing about the passage of time is that nothing lasts forever.
The nicer thing about sociopathic types is that a gang of thugs, whether small (street gang) or large (like the IMF/World Bank) eventually become suspicious of and will turn on each other when a situation starts to look dicey for them. This is human nature. I feel that we are approaching a tipping point with the global financial situation and once that happens the crowd noise at the top is going to be interesting.
The best laid plans of mice and men often go astray and I have a feeling that when the proverbial knives come out, there is going to be more double-crossing going on with these folks than you can shake a stick at.
Hopefully we on the lower rungs will have the sense not to do each other in as well...
Even if this gang is made up of international thugs, when the deal goes down, people will start looking out for thier own interest and thier thugmates may not be part of the equation.......
OK, Back on topic, lol

Or he could just be a garden variety rapist.
You are thinking logically..a rapist is not thinking logically. Rape can be a compulsion.

IF being the key word.

He was scheduled for a meeting the next day in Germany. Flying to France was not 'last minute' . Clearly he was heading that way. They police claim him laving his cell phone was indication he was 'leaving in a hurry'. That's seems like a stretch. It's just as easily could be being forgetful. To imply leaving a cell phone behind is evidence of 'leaving in a hurry' is intentionally smearing him in the media. it is a tactic.


The IMF committee have already named a replacement so they don't expect him back any time soon


Which is why it looks pre-planned.


. I'm a little surprised he plead not guilty to the charges of rape but maybe rough sex like this is not considered rape in France?


That doesnt even make sense. Why WOULDN'T he plead not guilty?

Indeed. But when a person of such high rank and importance, who is getting ready to head into a major election, it becomes a bit suspect.

The idea that the Fed is controlled by the Rothschilds is a hoax and a bad one at that.

Shares in the Federal Reserve are controlled by American banks only by law. This means JP Morgan, Citibank, etc.

The IMF comes in when the country defaults, they bail out countries.

A member country may request IMF financial assistance if it has a balance of payments need (actual or potential)—that is, if it cannot find sufficient financing on affordable terms to meet its net international payments while maintaining adequate reserve buffers going forward. An IMF loan provides a cushion that eases the adjustment policies and reforms that a country must make to correct its balance of payments problem and restore conditions for strong economic growth.

www.imf.org...

The only debts that are forgiven are among those nations considered Heavily Indebted Poor Countries and even then it essentially means a loss of sovereignty. They will not cancel any debt until the nation is restructured according to their specifications.

Third, the IMF and the World Bank did not cancel any debt until the completion point, leaving countries under the burden of their debt payments while they struggled to institute structural reforms

www.uiowa.edu...

It should also be noted that debt forgiveness has only been in the poorest African nations on earth and totals less than $70 billion. Meanwhile, Latin America alone still owes hundreds of billions and since they are not dirt poor, their debts will not be forgiven.

An interesting Opinion piece in the Guardian. In part:




In the maelstrom of comment that his arrest generated, the plight of the alleged victim was soon forgotten. It should never be. This is about justice not the careers of high fliers in politics and finance. The scandal deals a grievous blow both to the IMF and to French politics. Mr Strauss-Kahn, the fourth Frenchmen to run the IMF, is regarded both as a competent and progressive head of an organisation at a crucial time in attempts to stabilise the world economy.

He struck out against the high priests of neoliberalism by focusing on employment and recognising that countries facing speculative pressure could use capital controls as a defence. But this was work in progress and the tough conditions imposed on Greece and Ireland have caused many to question how much of the old thinking has really changed.

With interest rates on Greek bonds continuing to soar, Mr Strauss-Kahn's removal could not have come at a more vital time for Greece and the IMF. The flurry of official statements yesterday reflected that concern. The IMF put one out saying it was fully functioning. French politics are plainly not.

As Nicolas Sarkozy has sunk further in the opinion polls, DSK, as he is known, was looked upon (not just by the right wing of the Socialist party) as the only man who could unseat the French president. He had yet to throw his name into the hat, but had he done so, he would have been regarded as the leading Socialist candidate. There could not have been a better moment for him politically. The outgoing president was discredited, the Socialist party in disarray – unable to overcome the turf wars of its warring barons.

With a stint at the IMF behind him, he would have been the ideal man to lead France out of the financial storm. He was not without a history. There had been a string of sexual indiscretions, and a well-documented taste for the good life. In Britain he would have been called a champagne socialist. A photograph of him and his wife climbing into a Porsche in Paris was enough to stir controversy, even though the car turned out not to be his. But a bling-bling president challenged by a vroom-vroom socialist? None of this would have been enough to stop him roaring down the road that led to the Élysée, not so much a grand chemin as a six-lane autoroute.
