What's this about DNA evidence Blaine? do you know something about that. The man's been tested for DNA, and as far as I know it was offered voluntarily, we don't know the outcome of that as yet, whether it's evidence for or against him. Now, I have talked to quite a few friends who are not honed in to politics or public life all that much, but even they smell a rat just from what is coming out of mainstream media. Bottom line is no kudos for the cops, with all the 'plane and suicide drama and preemptive twittering from elsewhere, and an alleged victim in a safe house!! WTF I bet you'll pick up an old episode of Dallas or Dynasty with this scenario. MikeboydUS's point on the bail is so true, and is embarrassing for the judge and the cops, since it was feared he would flee the country, now they are encouraging him. Let's see what happens now.

Blaine, I think he did it too. I think he probably thought he'd be able to pay her off afterward, and get away with it. Because at his level in society, money usually does buy anything.

Some people cannot be bought though, and maybe he miscalculated because of his arrogance.

If this IS a set-up, which I will be because the evils want to get somebody else into his position so the financial takedown of the US can commence, NOT because he was really taking a stand for the "commoners".

Because no-one who isn't willing to go along with the most evil agenda possible, even has a chance to become the head of the IMF, guaranteed!

I am going to make a prediction right now that as soon as he gets a chance, he'll be on on a plane for Israel, ankle monitor or not.

Throughout the first few days it was being reported they have DNA evidence collected after the fact. Leaks from the Police I imagine. Nothing about the test results since then as I assume they put a lid on it. Considering who this was, the reporting has been pretty tame. This fellow likely has friends in the media.

If that was false, it would be known shortly I'd think. There would need to be very strong reason for the initial denial of Bail.

You talk like a personal friend of his? Not everything is a conspiracy and if it's just you are a Cop Hater, then your so biased your opinion is moot. Or is it a political thing?

When they arrest a man like this, they have the goods in hand or they don't do it. Judges don't deny Bail unless they have seen damning evidence.

He is just a powerful man so full of himself he thinks his servants are his personal toys. That's all that is going on here. Perhaps in his own country he does as he wishes to his underlings and he assumed he could do it here. Where he is from does not escape me.

With his wealth and power he likely has a team working the internet on his behalf right now. I expect to see mountains of propaganda to turn public opinion his way. When powerful people get caught, they don't go down easy. His money would buy lots of little sheep to spread his propaganda.

If you choose to believe that everyone who is arrested that has money is a victim, that is your cross to bear. We saw how bizarre it can get with OJ. These Celeb's and the Elite always have groupies.

It would mean little to him and I feel for that poor woman because with his money, she took a great risk. She is a hero for turning him in.

Right now there will be a team of people working to destroy her. She can't even fight back. A very brave woman for taking on that sick coward who buys his way through life.

It's sad too because most rich people I've known or met are good, normal acting people. This also feeds the crowd from the other side.

I thought about what I had heard on the tv about him in that he was a renouned womaniser and thought no smoke without fire.

However I have changed my mind. No man of that importance needs to pounce on the maid and what was she doing entering the room when he was in the shower. It was inappropriate and even if she had made a mistake, she would have been trained to leave immediately.

When I read he had not played ball with the rich and refused to let the poor pay for their banking games. I think he was in favour of some kind of regulation which I know the banks are determined to avoid so they can do exactly as they always have done without recrimination or punishment, then of course I had the reason for a set-up.

It was also extreme to compare him to Polansky and say were he given bail he would flit to France. I don't know if the maid was beaten or hurt in some way or in fact if she was actually raped, whereby I undertand were it him obviously he couldn't be given bail but if not, with his daughter living in the City he had an address he could have been bailed to. If he is innocent I feel very sorry for him being sent to Rikers Prison he looks a broken man and I can understand why.

Sexual Accusations are today's Black List of Communists
I agree that this whole thing stinks.

Today it's easier to discredit a politician or political tool by using indecent sex acts or accusations of wrong doing in their sex lives than it is to try to create a plot to destroy him in any other fashion. It's usually cheap, fast, and painless when dealing with sex crimes and credibility.
The first people that start to hate you when an accusation like this comes along is your close friends and family.
They question every situation they were ever in with you, they turn from thinking of the innocent gestures to plotting and planning their next victim.
I believe that this is a bigger conspiracy than even we can dig into at the moment. More will come from this and more people will be accused of similar acts and get the same treatment.

Julian Assange was also accused of sex acts, attempted rape. Seems the CIA had a hand in it as well, but there aren't a great load of people willing to back a person accused of such things. This is why the sex crime scandals are getting the attention they do. Its ruins a person, from the top down. Unlike other scandals, no one from the top will even associate with the former IMF chief becuase they are now worried about tarnishing their own reputations.

What if it isn't true?

I don't know. What I do know is that I have sensed something wrong with this story since the beginning.
What I also know is that this is one of the strategies the cabal uses to discredit/control people.

I'll wait to see what further information merges, but if what the article says about him wanting to rein in the power of the banksters, frankly this is a very, very convenient 'coincidence' for them.

posted on May, 19 2011 @ 06:19 PM
It's also suspicious that the story was trumpeted in the MSM. If he was someone who was 'playing ball' with the banksters' crimes, even if he had committed a sexual offense, they would have covered it up. It would not have had the MSM fanfare which it has had.

I have a bad feeling that this person will end up like the guy with one shoe on. He will be garbling statements and no one will understand him and then while he is drugged, will be executed. He will probably give demands to be let go or he will spill the beans. This will cause the Elites to do the deed. Lets watch this unfold and see if this guy suddenly dies of something sinister like drug overdose,car accident, suicide, or other means. I think this man is another walking dead man and i think he knows this and will try to prevent it from happenning. Maybe he will somehow skip out and that is when they will get him. My oppinion, anyways.

I think this person did what he is accused of and it's amazing to me anyone would care about him or defend him. He is an elitist megalomaniac who lives in luxury and stays in $3,000 a night rooms who I'd bet is shocked any lesser human would mind him using them for a sex doll. He likely has gotten away with that for many years.

I would only expect people just like him to defend him or make excuses for him.

Let's not forget they have enough evidence a Judge denied Bail and they have leaked they have DNA evidence which means a semen sample. Sometimes bad people get caught and that is all it is. It just so happens this one time a rich powerful pile of crap elitist got outed and he will pay for his crimes. Everything else is just smoke screens likely spread by his servants, supporters and attorneys.

His Cronies will fill the internet with propaganda to protect him. Best to assume the opposite of what this thread is about. We are talking the head of the IMF here. I'd be far more worried that he will be released by a Judge he is able to buy, slip back home and get away with a major felony. The odd part in this one is that they found an honest enough Judge to stick it too him.

If he did it, I'm glad he got caught, and it's true, his coterie will try to protect his reputation even if he is guilty.

On the other hand, I totally mistrust the cabal. And if someone does not do what they want, they 'remove' them one way or another.

Even DNA can be planted. Remember the wikilealks cables which showed that the State Dept was (illegally) asking diplomats to get samples of the DNA of pretty much everybody of significance? They wanted credit card numbers, personal address lists, etc.

Did you ever wonder why?

I did, and this was exactly the kind of thing I had in mind

An interesting read...

Can I tell you what this is all about? It's about the dollar. That's right. Strauss-Kahn was mounting an attack against the dollar and now the wrath of the Empire has descended on him like ton-of-bricks. Here's the scoop from the UK Telegraph:

"Dominique Strauss-Kahn, managing director of the International Monetary Fund, has called for a new world currency that would challenge the dominance of the dollar and protect against future financial instability.....

He suggested adding emerging market countries' currencies, such as the yuan, to a basket of currencies that the IMF administers could add stability to the global system....Strauss-Kahn saw a greater role for the IMF's Special Drawing Rights, (SDRs) which is currently composed of the dollar, sterling, euro and yen, over time but said it will take a great deal of international cooperation to make that work." ("International Monetary Fund director Dominique Strauss-Kahn calls for new world currency", UK Telegraph)

So, Strauss-Kahn finds himself in the same crowd as Saddam Hussein and Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, right? You may recall that Saddam switched from dollars to euros about a year before the war. 12 months later Iraq was invaded, Saddam was hanged, and the dollar was restored to power. Gaddafi made a similar mistake when "he initiated a movement to refuse the dollar and the euro, and called on Arab and African nations to use a new currency instead, the gold dinar." ("Libya: All About Oil, or All About Central Banking?" Ellen Brown, Op-Ed News)
Libya has since come under attack by US and NATO forces which have armed a motley group of dissidents, malcontents and terrorists to depose Gaddafi and reimpose dollar hegemony. And now it's Strauss-Kahn's turn to get torn to shreds.

And for good reason. After all, DSK actually poses a much greater threat to the dollar than either Saddam or Gaddafi because he's in the perfect position to shape policy and to persuade foreign heads of state that replacing the dollar is in their best interests. And that is precisely what he was doing; badmouthing the buck. Only he was too dense to figure out that the dollar is the US Mafia's mealticket, the main way that shifty banksters and corporate scalawags extort tribute from the poorest people on earth. Strauss-Kahn was rocking the boat, and now he's going to pay

Here's a clip from CNN Money:
"The International Monetary Fund issued a report Thursday on a possible replacement for the dollar as the world's reserve currency. The IMF said Special Drawing Rights, or SDRs, could help stabilize the global financial system....SDRs represent potential claims on the currencies of IMF members.....The IMF typically lends countries funds denominated in SDRs. While they are not a tangible currency, some economists argue that SDRs could be used as a less volatile alternative to the U.S. dollar. "Over time, there may also be a role for the SDR to contribute to a more stable international monetary system," he said.

The goal is to have a reserve asset for central banks that better reflects the global economy since the dollar is vulnerable to swings in the domestic economy and changes in U.S. policy. In addition to serving as a reserve currency, the IMF also proposed creating SDR-denominated bonds, which could reduce central banks' dependence on U.S. Treasuries. The Fund also suggested that certain assets, such as oil and gold, which are traded in U.S. dollars, could be priced using SDRs." ("IMF discusses dollar alternative", CNN Money)

Wow. So DSK was zeroing in on US Treasuries as well as the dollar? That's the whole shooting match.

And, there's more, too, because Strauss-Kahn's vision was not limited to currency alone, but involved broad structural changes to the IMF itself that would have reversed decades of neoliberal policies. DSK had settled on a new approach to policymaking; one that would abandon the worst elements of globalization and put greater emphasis on social cohesion, cooperation and multilateralism.

Here's an excerpt from the speech titled "Human Development and Wealth Distribution" he gave in November 2010: "....Adam Smith—one of the founders of modern economics—recognized clearly that a poor distribution of wealth could undermine the free market system, noting that: “The disposition to admire, and almost to worship, the rich and the powerful and…neglect persons of poor and mean condition…is the great and most universal cause of the corruption of our moral sentiments.”

This was over 250 years ago. In today’s world, these problems are magnified under the lens of globalization....globalization also had a dark side. Lurking behind it was a large and growing chasm between rich and poor—especially within countries. An inequitable distribution of wealth can wear down the social fabric. More unequal countries have worse social indicators, a poorer human development record, and higher degrees of economic insecurity and anxiety. In too many countries, inequality increased and real wages stagnated—failing to keep up with productivity—over the past few decades.

Ominously, inequality in the United States was back at its pre-Great Depression levels on the eve of the crisis.... An immediate task is to end the scourge of unemployment....Progressive taxation can also promote equity through redistribution, and this should be encouraged....“Inequality is corrosive” ....“it rots societies from within…it illustrates and exacerbates the loss of social cohesion…the pathology of the age and the greatest threat to the health of any democracy.” ("Human Development and Wealth Distribution", D


Is it about the dollar?

To me, it sounds like the man just didn't fit into the final solution. He is going down, and I don't believe for a minute that he wasn't set up. He's gone rogue, and the corporations and bankers cannot have that...

They don't need conclusive evidence to deny him bail, they just have to believe he will flee. Technically he did have diplomatic immunity, but to exercise it in this instance would be politically suicidal. The courts knew, if he got on a plane, they would have no power to get him back, regardless of any later evidence found.

So what happened today? He stepped down and got bail.

Based on this 'gameplay' being paraded before us, I suspect it's plot. When your intended victim is man like this (an elite 'player') a mere suggestion of criminal activity true or not, will start people digging. Normally this type 'player' would have been protected, but as we can see, he's being hung out to dry.

It is a terrible crime he's accused of and I'm not belittling it in any way (as one UK MP did this week), but the big question, as some have already noted, is why? Why are they dropping him?

And now I've just read Misnomers above post, i think that's a good place to start

There are several "factions" of "families" in the socialist party and they are always fighting and bitchslapping themselves for influence / power.

If this is bad for the Billdebergs then why is it recieving so much media coverage? With their power, influence and control over the media I am sure they would be able to sweep this "under the rug". The far left socialists have minimal control over anything.

Unless I am mistaken he has not yet been through a judicial process and found guiltly. You have also completely disregarded the sentence I posted, let me repeat it here again because you seem to have trouble with comprehension.

I said "If he is guilty I am glad he has been caught'. Now, let me just explain that the word 'IF' at the beginning of that sentence reflects the FACT that his guild has NOT YET been proven in a court of law.

Secondly, I was NOT making a statement affirming that he was innocent, I was putting forward a HYPOTHESIS.
Do you understand now? Probably not.

That is an excellent, brilliant post.

I had my sights on Sarkosy until it became clear that the biggest impact was on the IMF......DSK was being held hostage until a change was forced on it by the N.Y. Thugs.

I was immediately struck with the amount of detail or alleged detail provided to the press. Talk a out a perfect set-up from the media perspective. Imagine a group of cops stopping a flight on the Tarmac. Planes are full of powerful people from both countries. This guy has been tried and convicted no matter what. Who will believe a conspiracy defense?

I bet it's not so simple. After reading about the man-boy love fest at Bohemian Grove, ive come to believe that nobody is permitted to rise to any level of political significance before they can be blackmailed. It seems depravity, perversion and luciferianism are part and parcel of politics.

Thanks OP. Great thread

I've read similar information in other places, and it has the ring of truth to me.

May 18, 2011 "Information Clearing House" -- The International Monetary Fund’s director, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, was arrested last Sunday in New York City on the allegation of an immigrant hotel maid that he attempted to rape her in his hotel room. A New York judge has denied Strauss-Kahn bail on the grounds that he might flee to France.

President Bill Clinton survived his sexual escapades, because he was a servant to the system, not a threat. But Strauss-Kahn, like former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, was a threat to the system, and, like Eliot Spitzer, Strass-Kahn has been deleted from the power ranks.

Strauss-Kahn was the first IMF director in my lifetime, if memory serves, who disavowed the traditional IMF policy of imposing on the poor and ordinary people the cost of bailing out Wall Street and the Western banks. Strauss-Kahn said that regulation had to be reimposed on the greed-driven, fraud-prone financial sector, which, unregulated, destroyed the lives of ordinary people. Strauss-Kahn listened to Nobel economist Joseph Stiglitz, one of a handful of economists who has a social conscience.

Perhaps the most dangerous black mark in Strauss-Kahn’s book is that he was far ahead of America’s French puppet, President Sarkozy, in the upcoming French elections. Strauss-Kahn simply had to be eliminated.


If this is true, we sadly just lost a key player who was working against the interests of the cabal and in the interests of the world population.

Full article on link above.

We've been discussing this for several days on another ATS thread:

"IMF Leader Arrested After Alleged Sex Attack"

Reaching started this thread on May 14, six days ago.

I think DSK was set up. So now DSK is being painted as a nice guy? I don't know that I'm ready to buy that.

I think I missed this thread, because I did one about this issue today, so mods can close him. But I want to share with you what I think about it:

In a statement, the IMF announced that Strauss-Kahn resigned tonight before the directory of the financial institution.

"It is with great sadness that I feel compelled to submit my resignation to the Board for the post of managing director of IMF," Strauss-Kahn said in a statement. "I mean I deny in the strongest terms all the allegations that were made against me," he said.

Dominique Strauss Kahn was the victim of a conspiracy built to the highest level because it has become an increasing threat to major financial groups worldwide. His recent statements as the need to regulate markets and rates of financial transactions, as well as a more equitable distribution of wealth, frightened those who handling , speculate and rule the world economy.

Do you remember this event?

At the inaugural meeting of the Institute for New Economic Thinking, co-founded by George Soros, held at King's College in Cambridge, England where John Maynard Keynes used to reign, Dominique Strauss-Kahn spoke as one of the keynote speakers. As his remarks began, anti-IMF protesters had broken into the hall and hung a banner over the stage in front of two hundred or so surprised economic thinkers and writers. I was in the second row and snapped the picture at the side which I quickly fed to Arianna Huffington who in turn had it up as the lead on Huffington Post in about three minutes.

What followed was magnificent. Strauss-Kahn showed no fear at all of these protesters whom he engaged in discussion. He asked them to make clear their concerns -- to use his stage to articulate their core fears and demands and make this time that they had taken count. Unfortunately, the folks hanging the banner were not those most intellectually in tune with the protest and they ran off after he asked them to speak. I had communication with the protest leaders later and have no doubt that they would have done well in responding to Strauss-Kahn, but the key then is that he actually did think they should be heard and that the elite who had assembled in Keynes' former halls should not forget the voices of those worried about the impact of global economic policy making. It was a powerful moment, deftly managed by Strauss-Kahn.

Strauss-Kahn's latest IMF patient has been Greece, helping it to work through its debt nightmares. Virtually everyone gives the IMF Director high marks for his ability to keep in mind human faces when sorting through and dealing with the tough disciplines wrought by globalization.

What is clear is that Strauss-Kahn who is one of the few major economic gladiators in the world to defend the rights and privileges of people is human himself. We sometimes forget that.

Still, I have some problems to believe in this alleged rape.


Not worth it give an opinion on the guilt or innocence about the sexual crime of Dominique Strauss Kahn is accused, the MSM already lynched him. Anyway, this criminal case seems too well orchestrated to be true, there are many inconsistencies and it is hard to believe this story.

What is important here to emphasize is: who benefits from the exit from the scene of Strauss Kahn?

Remember when in 2007 he was appointed to be the boss of the IMF, was elected by the club Bilderberg group, which is member. At that time, he posed no "danger" to the global financial and economic elites with whom shared the same ideas.

In 2008, there is the global financial crisis and with it the past few months, the voices of criticism as to the guilt of the banking world and the permissive role of cooperating and even the U.S. government. Little by little, the director of the IMF began to distance themselves from the policy pursued by their predecessors in the field that the U.S. has always had within the organization.

Earlier this month, went unnoticed in MSM the discourse of Dominique Strauss Kahn. He was now far from what has always been the orientation of the IMF. Progressively, the IMF was to abandon part of its main lines: the control of capital and job flexibility. The liberalization of finance, capital markets and was increasingly in the eyes of Strauss Kahn, responsible for the proliferation of the crisis "made in America."

The IMF boss now showing in their speeches via a "softer" financial "aid" to countries in need, allowing a lower unemployment and a sustainable consumption, and therefore would not be necessary to resort to unbridled privatization that only delayed the economic resumption. Of course, the world bankers saw no welcome this change, believed that everything and always had been, namely that the policy followed so far by the IMF had the expected results, ie the profits of large financial groups were guaranteed .

This turnaround was welcome to progressive economists like Joseph Stiglitz in a recent speech to the Brookings Institution, may have given the death sentence while praising the work of his friend Dominique Strauss Kahn. At that meeting Kahn Strauss concluded by saying: "After all, employment and justice are the foundations for stability and economic prosperity, a policy of stability and peace. This is the basis of IMF's mandate. This is the foundation of our program" .

It was unthinkable to the global financial power to accept such speech, the IMF could not become an wealth distribution organization. Dominique Strauss Kahn had become a big problem.

Recently had declared: "The job is only half done, as he has been leading the fund through a fundamental rethinking of its economic theory. In recent remarks, he has provided a broad summary of the conclusions: State regulation of markets needs to be more extensive; global policies need to create a more even distribution of income; central banks need to do more to prevent lending and asset prices from expanding too fast. 'The pendulum will swing from the market to the state"

Last week, Dominique Strauss Kahn, at George Washington University, went further in his statement: "Globalization has delivered a lot ... but it also has a dark side, a large and growing chasm between the rich and the poor. Clearly we need a new form of globalization' to prevent the 'invisible hand' of loosely regulated markets from becoming 'an invisible fist.'"

Dominique Strauss Kahn here, signed his death sentence, stepped onto the red line, so He was trapped and crushed.

Trumped up rape charges are the weapon of choice these days.

Just ask Julian Assange.

Once the charge has been leveled, guilt or innocence becomes largely irrelevant; the damage has been done.
