“When police and prosecutors convict a suspect in the media before he is even charged, it typically means that there is no evidence against him and that demonization is serving as the substitute.”
We have all read the stories about the accusations, arrest, and then the dismissal, of the charges against Mr. Strauss-Kahn, but media focus has centered on the story of the alleged victim rather than on who was pulling the strings behind the scenes in what visibly appears to be a political frame-up.
It is very curious that the prosecution’s case distintegrated only a few days after Lagarde was appointed to replace Strauss-Kahn as the head of the IMF.
Even more curious is why none of the US mainstream media want to try to connect the dots and see where they lead.
In fact, the the most likely hypothesis, which is that DSK was deliberately set up, is not only being totally avoided by the mainstream media, but any reader comments on the issue are either not posted (NYT) or are deleted immediately after posting. There is ample evidence that the media – especially in the US – have been instructed to prevent all comment on this issue.
The general rule is that if a story doesn’t make sense, it’s usually not true. As with most fabricated stories, this one has many gaps that cannot easily be plugged, and serious questions that are either not addressed or are riddled with implausible explanations. Among them is this gem:
The Mysterious Telephone Call
“Investigators with the Manhattan district attorney’s office learned the call (to an unspecified prison) had been recorded and had it translated from a “unique dialect of Fulani,” a language from the woman’s native country, Guinea, according to a well-placed law enforcement official.
When the conversation was translated – a job completed only this Wednesday – investigators were ‘alarmed’: “She says words to the effect of, ‘Don’t worry, this guy has a lot of money. I know what I’m doing,’ ” the official said.”
But what the NYT and other American papers neglected to tell us is that Fulani is one of the three major West African languages (excluding French), and is not in any sense a “unique dialect.”
Moreover, there are nearly 100,000 Fulani speakers living and around in NYC and have been for decades. The courts know this, the police know this, the hospitals know this, and specifically because of the courts and police, all the interpreting agencies of the city have had many occasions to find Fulani interpreters.
So, if this prison phone conversation in Fulani took place the day after the events in mid-May, why did it take six weeks to have it translated – especially when the prosecutors began having doubts about their victim almost immediately?
The Times tells us is that “Within a week of Mr. Strauss-Kahn’s arrest, the authorities learned of a recorded conversation between the subject of a drug investigation and another man, who said his companion was the woman involved in the Strauss-Kahn matter.”
Contradictions and Doubts From the First Hours
Among other items, the authorities would have known immediately that their claimed story would not hold up, because the room keycard records disproved within hours much of the woman’s (and their own) claims about the sequence of events.
If we accept the authorities’ version of events, we are expected to believe that the case unravelled all on one day. But that clearly is not true. We have the claim that the recorded prison conversation wasn’t translated for six weeks, but all of the other evidence collapsed slowly during that time. Why did the authorities conceal all that disintegrating exculpatory evidence until the US had time to install Christine Lagarde as the new head of the IMF?
Why did the prosecutor’s office wait until after Mr. Stauss-Kahn’s successor was installed as head of the IMF, seven full weeks after the events, to reveal that they had multiple serious doubts about their case from the very first week? It would seem the authorities simply tried to add a measure of plausible deniability to suspicions as to why they claim to have waited seven weeks to translate the woman’s conversation with a convicted drug dealer.
The only sensible answer is that the US needed time to confirm Ms. Lagarde’s appointment, to ensure that Strauss-Kahn was out of the IMF, before destroying their own case.
And More Nonsense
And there are some aspects of the story that are simply complete nonsense, such as the woman’s claimed “reporting” of the event to her supervisor in which her first statement was the question: “Can any guest at the hotel do anything they want with us?”
Do we need to even think about this, to know that it cannot possibly be true? A “very pious, devout Muslim woman who had been a housekeeper at the Sofitel for a few years” is raped, waits for a long period, takes the time to clean at least two rooms (on the basis that her supervisor will soon be coming along anyway), and then asks a question as stupid as that one?
The woman certainly had experience in claiming rapes before (and apparently considerable training in acting) – all of which she later recanted as false – but we’re expected to believe she is so innocent in the ways of the world, so naive, and so stupid, as to ask if hotel guests “can do anything they want to us”.
Lies, Even Felonious Ones, Are Just “Mistakes”
In two separate interviews with assistant district attorneys assigned to the case, the complainant stated that she had been the victim of a gang rape in the past in her native country and provided details of the attack. During both of these interviews, the victim cried and appeared to be markedly distraught when recounting the incident. In subsequent interviews, she admitted that the gang rape had never occurred. Instead, she stated that she had lied about its occurrence and fabricated the details.
The woman told 37 substantial lies but, according to her lawyer, “She made some mistakes here, but that doesn’t mean she is not a rape victim.” Mistakes?
If we are to believe the authorities’ new version of events, the alleged victim has committed multiple counts of perjury, tax fraud, visa and passport fraud, conspiracy to commit extortion, among others, but neither the police nor the media appear to have any interest in pursuing these details. Does that not seem strange?
It will be almost certain proof that this entire bizarre event was a political fraud, when we eventually realise that no action will be taken against the alleged victim for her string of alleged crimes. We can fully expect this news item to die quickly, now that the maximum damage has been done to a French Jewish political opponent and to a challenger of US control of the IMF.
The Perpetrator Flees, Leaving Behind ‘Valuable Items”
Without actually making the claim, the NYT and other US media stories led us to believe that Mr. Strauss-Kahn attacked this woman, then fled to the airport in a panic, evidenced by his leaving behind “a mobile phone” and other valuables, and the authorities apprehended him during the last seconds before his plane left the country.
But DSK didn’t flee from his room. On the contrary, we have a witness account, a woman who used the elevator with him who explained that she found him pleasantly calm; he checked out without anybody finding anything wrong, took a cab to a restaurant where he had lunch with his daughter and then went to the airport to catch a plane with a ticket that had been bought a few days before. As for the cell phone, he has several of them and he first called up the restaurant to see whether he left it there and then the hotel.
And further, how would the police have any way of knowing where Strauss-Kahn was, at that point? And why has no one attempted to explain how the French media knew (and had time to report) that Strauss-Kahn had been arrested for rape before the actual arrest even took place?
The Mall-Cop Investigation and Leaked (fake) “evidence”
Then we have the supervisor calling “security”, after which the security officers “conduct an investigation” and find semen on the floor and wall. They then call the police, setting off the quick chain of events that led to police officers escorting Mr. Strauss-Kahn off the Air France plane.
Are we to believe that the mall-cop wannabes comprising hotel security are competent to perform such an investigation of a crime scene, an examination of a hotel room, are equipped and able to perform lab tests to determine the presence of semen, and then only after confirmation (of semen on a carpet) would they call the police?
As to the media claims of the accused’s semen being found on the maid’s clothing as well as in the room, a spokesman from the New York Police Department denied that the results from the genetic testing had been released. Investigators claimed they had given “no result and no information” about the DNA test results, the police said on Tuesday, following news reports earlier that the DNA tests had given a positive result.
As well, a prominent US defense lawyer claimed that there was substantial doubt in the legal defence community as to the quick turnaround of the so-called DNA evidence and the match that they might have made in just a few short days, since accurate DNA testing normally takes several weeks.
Perhaps even more to the point, in the case of a rape claim, the “walls and carpet” are not normally the first locations one would examine for semen but, in spite of the virtual flood of minute detail provided, there is no reference to any examination of the woman that might have proven her claim. We’re told she was “taken to a hospital and treated for (unspecified) injuries”, but that was after the arrest and charges.
The formal charges accused Strauss-Kahn of ripping the woman’s pantyhose, trying to rape her and “forcing her to perform oral sex”. Well, maybe, but (and at the risk of appearing inexcusably low-class) one of the factors making rape possible is that vaginas don’t have teeth. I can’t speak for Bill Clinton, but most men have a natural aversion to “putting themselves in harm’s way”.
And in the end, we have no independent confirmation of who this woman is, whether she was actually an employee at the hotel in question, or whether anything happened at all.
Everything about this event has a stink of conspiracy, of a setup. The maid, if in fact she exists at all, would appear to be just another pawn in the hands of the masters of the new world order.
Who and Why?
I just wanted to be the President of France. Israel needs me there. This whole affair has Mossad and the CIA written all over it – as did the similar incident with Julian Assange.
As an aside, you may not be aware that one of the two women who accused Assange of rape, immediately left Europe after the charges were laid, and returned to her kibbutz in Israel. If that doesn’t give us a clue, I don’t know what would.
In fact, sexual entrapment has long been a part of clandestine intelligence activities by both Mossad and the CIA. You may recall that Israel trapped Mordechai Vanunu in England in precisely this way, then kidnapped him and returned him to Israel.
The US desperately wanted Strauss-Kahn out of the IMF because he refused to force countries like Greece to comply with the economically destructive policies that always favor the US by keeping poor countries poor.
Moreover, both the US and Israel wanted Christine Lagarde as the new IMF head. She is a member of the Bilderberg Group and in favor of the new US “world order” intended to preserve US hegemony worldwide. Strauss-Kahn would not cooperate and, without the IMF onside, the Bilderberg plans could not proceed.
In France, Sarkozy desperately wanted to remove Strauss-Kahn from Presidential contention because he (Sarkozy) would almost certainly lose.
“The prosecutor, a politically ambitious Cyrus Vance, is going for a misdemeanor plea from DSK to save the prosecutor’s face from injudiciously being drawn into an extortion/reputation-destroying plot against the man who French polls indicated was the public’s favorite in the upcoming French presidential election in which President Sarkozy, Washington’s puppet, is seeking reelection.”
And the Jews and Zionists in Israel wanted to maintain Sarkozy in power because he would do his master’s bidding to ensure the protection of Israel’s genocidal practices and the status of French Jews, while containing the anti-Israel sentiment in France.
Israel’s government and French Jews and Zionists were among Sarkozy’s strongest electoral support. We can refer to Israel’s conceited triumphalism with which they greeted his election: “we are persuaded that the new president will continue eradicating anti-Israeli resistance”.
We will probably never know who originally thought the scheme up, nor the likely part played by Sarkozy’s operatives and their US and Jewish allies. One indication that DSK’s political enemies are implicated is the fact, made public by the French press, that Sarkozy’s political team in France knew about DSK’s arrest before the NY police announced it.
Sarkozy has now been confirmed as a Mossad agent, the details revealed to the public by Le Figaro.
The influential French daily last week revealed that the French leader is an Israeli intelligence agent, one of the thousands of Jewish citizens of countries other than Israel who cooperate with the Mossad. Information given to the French police before the last presidential election but somehow kept secret until now, revealed that Sarkozy had been recruited as an Israeli spy.
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was on a state visit to France immediately after Le Figaro’s exposé of Sarkozy as a Mossad agent – ostensibly to discuss Iran’s nuclear agenda and the Palestinian question.
The French police are currently investigating documents concerning Sarkozy’s alleged espionage activities on behalf of Mossad, which Le Figaro claims dated as far back as 1983. In 1978, Israeli prime minister Menachem Begin ordered the infiltration of the French ruling Gaullist Party, Union pour un Mouvement Populaire. In 1983, they recruited the “young and promising” Sarkozy.
Nicolas Sarkozy’s step-father, Frank G. Wisner II, a prominent CIA official served as Deputy Executive Secretary of State under the helm of Cyrus Vance Senior, father of District Attorney Cyrus Vance Junior. The Vance and Wisner families had close personal ties. In turn Nicolas Sarkozy had close family ties with his step-father Frank Wisner, and these families were involved in his election campaign, as were many other Jewish (Zionist, Israeli) interests.
Frank G. Wisner II was the son of one of America’s most notorious spies, the late Frank Gardiner Wisner (1909-1965), the mastermind behind the CIA sponsored coup which toppled the government of Mohammed Mossadegh in Iran in 1953. Wisner Jr. is also a trustee of the Rockefeller Brothers Trust.
Maybe We Should Get Rid of the Dollar. Or, Maybe Not . . .
“The arrest of IMF Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn has all the appearances of a frame-up ordered by powerful members of the financial establishment, in liaison with France’s Nicolas Sarkozy, whose presidency has served the interests of the US and Israel at the expense of those of France and the European Union. Immediately following Strauss Kahn’s arrest, pressures were exerted by Washington to speed up his replacement as Managing Director of the IMF.”
He confronted the Washington-Wall Street Consensus and pushed for reforms within the IMF, which challenged America’s overriding role within the organization. The removal of Strauss-Kahn serves to strengthen US world hegemony and US control over the IMF, to say nothing of maintaining the dollar as the world’s reserve currency.
There appears to be little question that one of two pillars of Strauss-Kahn’s demise was a perceived necessary “regime change” at the IMF. The other would appear to be Israel’s desperation to remove Strauss-Kahn from French Presidential contention, in order to preserve Sarkozy – their “man in Paris”.
According to 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…
Strauss-Kahn quickly found himself in the compnay of Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi. Saddam’s refusal to accept US dollars and his shift to the Euro is almost certainly the reason Iraq was invaded. Saddam was hanged, and the dollar was restored to power. Gaddafi made the same mistake when he recommended nationalising the Libyan oil industry and initiated a movement to refuse the further use of the US dollar.
According to CNN Money: “The International Monetary Fund issued a report Thursday on a possible replacement for the dollar as the world’s reserve currency.”
And Who Might Win This Game?
Well, the new financial World Order may be a bit safer for the moment, now that Christine Lagarde is firmly placed in position at the IMF.
But, as Canada’s Globe & Mail pointed out, “By the end of the day, it was clear that someone’s political prospects had been seriously damaged. Just not those of Mr. Strauss-Kahn, 62, who might conceivably still eye the Élysée, the French presidential palace.
One day, he was an alleged rapist; the next, a plausible victim of American perfidy. And that, in the political alchemy of France, may be enough to turn Dominique Strauss-Kahn from political pariah into electoral gold. Never has a political career fallen so fast and so far, and then immediately rebounded with such stunning speed and symmetry, as that of Mr. Strauss-Kahn.”
