Introduction

Dominique Strauss-Khan (DSK) was a former minister in various French governments and most latterly the Managing Director of the IMF. In 2011 he was involved in a sexual scandal in New York, eventually exonerated but ruined nonetheless. This story is of vital importance in understanding and making sense of our current geopolitical circumstances, important not because the event happened but because it was possible for such an event to happen, and that there are people with the power to make it happen.

The conspiracy theorists should have had a field day with this one, and all indications are that they would have been correct. 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 were either not addressed or were riddled with implausible explanations.

This episode began on May 14, 2011, at the Sofitel Hotel in NYC. Around noon, a hotel maid, Nafissatou Diallo, a ~35-year-old immigrant from Guinea, entered DSK’s room to clean it. Initial reports were that the man emerged naked from the bathroom and sexually assaulted the maid who eventually broke free and notified the authorities. In the meantime, DSK checked out of the hotel and left for the airport to take a flight to Germany. The NYC police took him off the plane, arrested and charged him with seven criminal acts that included four felony charges of attempted rape and sexual abuse, plus misdemeanor offences including unlawful imprisonment.[1]Strauss-Kahn arrest: IMF head detained at Rikers Island

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-13420440
DSK was denied bail on the grounds of being a flight risk, and was incarcerated at Rikers Island. The following day, he was offered bail on condition that he resign his position as Managing Director of the IMF; he agreed a day later and was released into house arrest pending a hearing.

On 19 May, DSK was indicted by a grand jury on all seven charges, and ordered to stand trial. He was required to post a \$1 million cash bail, wear an electronic monitoring device, surrender all his passports, and hire armed guards to ensure he didn’t violate his house arrest. He was also required to post a \$5 million bond.[2]Strauss-Kahn indicted by grand jury, is granted \$1 million cash bail

https://news.yahoo.com/news/strauss-kahn-indicted-gr...3.html

The prosecution’s case began to fall apart almost immediately, progressively disintegrated over the following six weeks, and by July 1 prosecutors told the judge that they had “reassessed the strength of their case in the light of the housekeeper’s diminished credibility”, and sent a letter to DSK’s lawyers admitting serious inconsistencies in the maid’s tale.[3]Letter from prosecutors on Strauss-Kahn accuser’s story

Also on July 1, DSK was freed from house arrest and had his bail dropped because the circumstances of the case had “changed substantially”.[5]Strauss-Kahn Is Released From House Arrest

https://www.npr.org/2011/07/01/137549786/strauss-kah...mbling
However, further hearings were still necessary to determine the extent of the charges to be prosecuted, with the next hearing date set for July 18, an important date as we will see. These hearings lingered until August 23 when all charges against DSK were finally dropped and he was free to return home to France.[6]Recommendation for Dismissal of Strauss-Kahn Case

However, the man’s problems weren’t over. Almost immediately upon his return to France, a young woman named Tristine Bannon attempted to file charges against DSK for an “attempted rape” that had occurred some 9 years earlier. In October, after much media publicity, the French prosecutors dropped the investigation from a lack of evidence.[9]French Strauss-Kahn sex assault probe dropped

But a few months later, in March 2012, French prosecutors announced another investigation on DSK about his “possible connection” to a gang rape that supposedly occurred in Washington, D.C. At about the same time, authorities began yet another investigation in France, this time with allegations about his supposed involvement in hiring prostitutes for sex parties at hotels in Lille, Paris and Washington.[11]French prosecutor drops Strauss-Kahn ‘gang rape’ probe

https://www.abc.net.au/lateline/dsk-investigated-ove...916424
but troubles remained. Amid a continuing media frenzy, in July of 2013 French prosecutors announced that DSK was to stand trial on allegations of “aggravated pimping” at the Carlton hotel in Lille.[13]Dominique Strauss-Kahn to stand trial for pimping, French prosecutors say

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/jul/26/domini...imping
The accusations were that orgies had been held at this hotel and DSK had been instrumental in hiring prostitutes for the events. This court case dragged on for two years, the French media providing weekly details with very specific references to DSK and his conduct, some claiming “he had sex with every girl in the room”.[14]DSK’s extraordinary excuse: ‘I didn’t know I was sleeping with prostitutes at orgies because they were all naked at the time’

DSK was acquitted of all these charges in June of 2015.[15]French Court Acquits Dominique Strauss-Kahn in Case That Put His Sex Life on View

https://www.nytimes.com/2015/06/13/world/europe/dsk-...s.html

Still more. While the French media were hyperventilating over the juicy details of DSK’s real or imagined sexual exploits, Able Ferrara produced a feature film titled “Welcome to New York“, starring Gérard Depardieu as DSK and Jacqueline Bisset as his wife Anne Sinclair.[16]Why D.S.K. Won’t Go Away

https://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/25/opinion/sunday/wh...y.html
The film was built around the story in the Sofitel hotel and apparently “portrayed both characters in an unforgiving light”. Ms. Sinclair, who is by all accounts a thoroughly lovely person, said the film was “disgusting”, and DSK sued the film’s producers for libel. Then still more. In 2020, there was a Netflix “documentary” titled “Room 2806: The Accusation“, based on the Sofitel event and the other alleged accusations against DSK.[17]Room 2806: The Accusation

https://www.netflix.com/pt-en/title/81068760

By this time, after months of unfavorable exposure in the US and nearly four years of the same in France, it could be truly said that Strauss-Khan’s political, public, and social careers were at an end. After years of publicity, investigations and trials, DSK had been acquitted on all charges in all countries. It appears there never was sufficient evidence to support any of the allegations made against him, but the man would never again hold any international positions and was by this time much too toxic to ever re-enter French politics. DSK has since remarried and is doing “financial consulting” and giving speeches. The end. Well, almost the end.

The Handmaid’s Tale – a Futuristic Dystopian Novel (with due apologies to Margaret Atwood)

According to her claims to the police and her testimony at the Grand Jury hearing, and according to the New York Times, the New York Post, the New York Daily News, the Wall Street Journal and many others:

The maid inserted her card-key, opened the door, and called aloud several times to learn if the room were occupied. Receiving no response, she entered and began her tasks. Then, “the married Strauss-Kahn” emerged naked from the bathroom, chased the maid around his suite, “locked the door” so she couldn’t escape, then dragged her into a bathroom and “engaged in a criminal sexual act”. There was much confusion as to whether the criminal sexual act was anal, oral, or none of the above. However, while chasing and dragging her around the suite, DSK was apparently yelling “Don’t you know who I am? Don’t you know who I am?” When the maid begged the man to desist on grounds she could lose her job, DSK comforted her by saying “Oh, baby, don’t worry baby. You won’t lose your job”. There was also confusion as to injuries incurred by both parties, the maid apparently suffering “a torn shoulder ligament” in her struggles, while DSK was reported to have suffered severe bruises on his back when the maid forcefully shoved him into some furniture.

The maid then fled the man’s suite and cowered in fear in a hallway until a maintenance supervisor discovered her, after which they notified hotel security who performed an investigation, confirmed the torn pantyhose, discovered DSK’s DNA and semen on the walls and carpet, and eventually notified the police. In the meantime, DSK had dressed, packed his things, checked out of the hotel, and took a taxi to the airport in an attempt to flee the country.

But justice never sleeps. It seems that in his haste to flee the country DSK left behind one of his mobile phones. Taking a great risk, being as guilty as he was, he nevertheless called the hotel to ask if the phone had been left in his room; after some discussion, the hotel staff called him to say they had indeed found his phone and would deliver it to the airport. The NYPD then escorted DSK off the plane as the doors were closing for departure, and arrested him. You know the rest, except that none of “the rest” was as it appeared to be.

Some Chinks in the Armor

Ancillary Hotel Services, Turn-Downs Included

At the outset of this event, before all the wagons had been properly circled, the hotel security staff and the NYPD independently confirmed to DSK’s lawyers that the woman was known to act as a prostitute in the hotel, offering special services and “turn-downs”. That much appears certain, but when the claims became public too quickly, everyone rushed to deny them and a hotel representative said, “We have no knowledge about that”.

The Crime Scene: DNA “linked to Maid”

The first rule of criminal investigations is that you don’t contaminate the crime scene. Yet the maid returned to clean the room, no doubt doing so immaculately as is the standard with Accor Hotels everywhere. And she wasn’t the only one. Syed Haque, a room service employee, came to pick up the breakfast dishes which had already been collected several hours prior. Renata Markozani, the head of housekeeping, entered the room to examine the situation, and also Brian Yearwood, the hotel’s chief engineer, with no explanation as to his purpose. Then the hotel security staff who, with little or no training in criminal investigations, went to the room to perform such. Between all of these, any evidence actually existing would have been either contaminated, destroyed – or planted.

It should be noted that anyone with access to a hotel guest’s clothing, toiletry, bedding, linen or laundry, has access to everything necessary to spread that guest’s DNA (possibly including sperm and other body secretions) on any surface or clothing anywhere. In this context, it is not irrelevant that DSK apparently had a woman spend the night with him in that room. The simple fact is that nothing found in that room later by police investigators could possibly have qualified as “evidence” of the crime in question.

The mass media flooded the nation with news that DSK’s DNA had been found (almost) everywhere, linking it to ‘the maid’ without noting the method of linkage.[18]Strauss-Kahn DNA ‘linked to maid’

[20]Strauss-Kahn’s lawyers complain about police leaks

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-strausskahn-leaks...110526
The New York Times was there first, citing “a person briefed in the matter“, stating DSK’s DNA and semen were found on the maid, on her clothing, on the walls, on the carpet, and perhaps on the ceiling. After this information had been duly digested by the public, the police and prosecutors stated that no such evidence had actually been obtained or released. “A prominent US defense lawyer claimed that there was substantial doubt . . . [about] the so-called DNA evidence and the match . . . since accurate DNA testing normally takes several weeks.” However, the DNA linked to the maid was headline material, the denials not so much . The Wall Street Journal reported that DSK’s DNA sample and semen were found on the woman’s shirt, quoting “sources close to the investigation” and citing “law enforcement officials” who immediately stated they had never said any such thing.[21]NYPD deny they are source of reports suggesting Strauss-Kahn’s DNA matched sample taken from alleged victim’s clothes.

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2011/5/24/police-deny...report

In fact, there was never actual confirmation of any of this, and the investigators claimed to have found no traces of semen in the sink where the maid claimed it had been spit. The NYPD and the prosecutors simply let media speculation run wild and did nothing to combat it. All of the claims were based on leaked rumors.

Hotel security officers “conducted an investigation” and claimed to have found semen on the floor and wall. They then called the police, setting off the chain of events that led to the arrest at the airport. We are to believe that the mall-cop wannabes comprising hotel security were competent to perform a criminal investigation, and equipped and able to perform lab tests.

The Perpetrator Flees, Leaving Behind ‘Valuable Items”

The US media, led by the NYT, led us to believe that DSK attacked this woman, then fled to the airport in a panic, evidenced by his leaving behind a mobile phone and “other valuables”, the authorities apprehending him during the last seconds before his “fleeing the country”. But DSK didn’t flee; on the contrary, we have a witness account from a woman who used the elevator with him who said that she found him pleasantly calm. He waited patiently in line and checked out without anybody noticing anything wrong, took a cab to a restaurant where he had lunch with his daughter and then went to the airport to take a flight with a ticket that had been purchased days earlier. DSK was leaving the US for Germany where he had an arranged appointment with Angela Merkel. And, for the record, nothing was “left behind” including “other valuables”. What did happen was that one of his mobile phones was lifted from his room.

The NYT led us to believe DSK was arrested on, and then removed from, the airplane, just as the doors were closing for departure. But that description was a bald lie. The truth was that the hotel, on instruction, called DSK to tell them they had found his missing phone. Apparently, it was the police who then called to tell him that his phone was at the gate desk, and asked him to exit from the plane to retrieve it. When he deplaned, he was arrested. Leaving the Air France plane to recover the phone was a strong indication of a lack of guilt since while on the aircraft he was technically on French sovereign territory and could not have been taken into custody. If he were concerned, he could have asked a stewardess to get his mobile phone for him or the detectives to deliver it to the steward. All of his behavior suggests the acts of an innocent man.

The NYT seemed eager to leave the impression that DSK left the hotel in a panic, overcome with fear and anxiety, and was in a headlong rush to flee the country. We have this almost certainly fictitious account: “A guest at the hotel, . . . said the livery driver who drove Mr. Strauss-Kahn to Kennedy Airport was also his driver on Saturday night. “He said Strauss-Kahn was in a huge hurry, . . . He wanted to leave as soon as possible. He looked upset and stressed.”[22]Police Seek Evidence From I.M.F. Chief on Sex Attack

https://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/16/nyregion/maid-pic...p.html
The BBC claimed this “was not the first time Mr. Strauss-Kahn had been involved in such an incident” (even though it was the first time), and further that “he had been arrested attempting to flee the country”, which of course was not true.[23]Strauss-Kahn arrest: IMF head detained at Rikers Island

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-13420440

The Mysterious Telephone Call

“Investigators with the Manhattan district attorney’s office learned that the woman made a recorded call to a prison inmate on May 15, the day after DSK’s arrest, with words to the effect of, “Don’t worry, this guy has a lot of money. I know what I’m doing”.[24]The Dominique Strauss-Kahn Affair: To Proceed Or Not To Proceed?

https://www.forbes.com/sites/jameszirin/2011/08/05/t...oceed/
This would seem to confirm claims by DSK’s lawyers that the encounter (if indeed there had been an encounter) was consensual and that the woman was attempting extortion. The woman later claimed her words had been “mistranslated”. In a 3-hour interview with Newsweek, the woman said she hopes God punishes him. “We are poor, but we are good,” she said. “I don’t think about money.”[25]“DSK Maid” Tells of Her Alleged Rape by Strauss-Kahn: Exclusive

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2011/8/23/sex-charges...s-kahn

More interesting was that the authorities required a full 6 weeks to translate the conversation because, according to them, it was in a “unique dialect of Fulani,” a language from the woman’s native country, Guinea. But there are no ‘unique dialects’ of the language, Fulani being one of the three major West African languages and extremely common, with the NYC area having more than 100,000 Fulani speakers. Moreover, the courts knew this, the police knew it, and local interpreting agencies claimed they had many occasions to provide Fulani interpreters, often on a daily basis. The New York Times was one of the principal promoters of this falsehood (and of many more). It is obvious the authorities lied about needing 6 weeks to arrange the translation, and it is just as obvious that they withheld the information until DSK was out of the running for the French Presidential Primaries.

The Money and the Phones

One of the threads running through the media presentations was that the prosecutors discovered flaws in the woman’s testimony and evidence of criminal activity, immediately notifying DSK’s lawyers. The NYT particularly pushed this narrative, stating “Still, it was the prosecutor’s investigators who found the information about the woman.”[27]Strauss-Kahn Prosecution Said to Be Near Collapse

https://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/01/nyregion/strauss-...y.html
Their claim appeared to have been almost entirely untrue. DSK’s legal team hired a private investigation company, Guidepost Solutions, which uncovered the claimant’s criminal background and reported that to the DA’s office, and which eventually exonerated DSK. Such investigations are rarely if ever done by police to help a defendant who has already been indicted.

The first discovery made by the private investigators was that someone had opened five different bank accounts in the woman’s name, with five different banks, in five different states (Arizona, Georgia, New York, Pennsylvania, and one unidentified)[28] Strauss-Kahn Prosecution Said to Be Near Collapse

Given that the woman’s ‘friend’ was in prison for minor drug offenses, the US media, led by the NYT at full volume, tried to relate the payments partially to her friend’s drug dealing, but the depositors were never identified, another sure sign of a CIA payoff. This apparently wasn’t enough of an issue for the media to question. We will never know where the money came from, but the simple fact that the media refused to touch this part of the story makes the conclusion almost certain. The NYT made a small concession to reality, stating there had been “unusual activity in her bank accounts”.[32]Strauss-Kahn Is Released From House Arrest

https://www.npr.org/2011/07/01/137549786/strauss-kah...mbling ?

The private investigators also discovered that the woman had at least 3 mobile phones with three different phone companies and was spending over \$500 every month on calls. On a maid’s salary? On calls to whom? As a reporter, that’s the first question I would ask. Another almost sure sign of CIA involvement. The media reported every other trivial detail but weren’t interested in this one.

The Timeline

The maid’s account and the prosecution’s case began to unravel in many other directions at the same time. The maid initially told investigators she had hidden after the attack until she saw her alleged attacker leave, after which she reported the assault to a supervisor. But the hotel’s card key register proved that she first mysteriously entered another room for a few minutes, then cleaned a nearby room, then returned to the room in which the alleged attack took place, cleaned it, then spoke to supervisors.[33] Dominique Strauss-Kahn freed as case details aired outside court room

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2011/jul/01/domini...-court
There is another curiosity here: the maid’s cleaning assignments until that day had always involved rooms scattered on various floors, but on this day was given the 28th floor exclusively, so there would be no other hotel staff on that floor that day. The story was that she assumed duties of a colleague on leave, but the lawyers believed this was a method to give her access to DSK “for some nefarious reason.”

According to the card key records, the maid entered another room adjacent to that of DSK three times prior to entering his room, and again immediately when leaving his room after the alleged assault occurred. This information was omitted from her police reports and her Grand Jury testimony. The hotel refused to identify the (probably CIA) occupant of that room. All indications are that she was reporting to her handlers for last-minute instructions, then reporting her success afterward. The media omitted the fact of the second hotel employee entering the room while the maid was still there. This appears to be when DSK’s mobile phone went missing.

A Few More Inconsistencies

The woman’s account is riddled with inconsistent statements. She told the grand jury in sworn testimony that she left the room, waited in the corridor until DSK left and then reported the incident, and only when confronted with electronic card key evidence, did she admit she cleaned another room and then returned to the scene of the crime before reporting the incident. She told investigators that she fled the room as soon as she could, but she told the rape counselor at the hospital that she waited in the room for DSK to get dressed. Why would she do that, after having been raped? She claimed in testimony that the two never spoke, then told ABC-TV anchor Robin Roberts that they spoke at some length. In fact, she had three completely different versions of the events that transpired and of her activity following.

If the woman had sustained injuries – including a “torn shoulder ligament” as authorities claimed, how would she then proceed to clean rooms? If the woman had been raped and injured, why wouldn’t she would seek help and medical attention immediately? A “torn ligament” would be painful and require immediate treatment.

There was much more. It was discovered that the woman had “had practice at this kind of storytelling before”. “Further investigation revealed that the [maid] had lied on her 2004 asylum claim about being gang-raped in her home country of Guinea. More damaging still, she had rehearsed the narrative of lies for asylum so often, listening to them over and over on an audiotape supplied by a male accomplice, that even years later she would break down crying as she told the story—until, finally, under very tough questioning by assistant district attorneys, she admitted the asylum narrative was a fabrication.”[41] Christopher Dickey World News Editor Newsweek and The Daily Beast as Paris bureau chief

John Solomon Updated Jul. 13, 2017 6:57PM ET / Published Jul. 01, 2011 9:52PM ET
Her stories were apparently so well-told that listeners would often be driven to tears as well.

“The most seasoned professionals in the office working on this case were brought to tears by this woman’s life story. I mean literally brought to tears,” says Linda Fairstein, former chief of the Sex Crimes Prosecution Unit. “She was so convincing that cops, advocates, professionals, bought the story. And then the prosecutors got to work.” But with the Arizona phone call and the asylum stories as background, the more investigators examined the accuser’s story, the more anomalies began to multiply.”[42]https://www.theguardian.com/world/2011/jul/01/domini...-court

There were also questions raised about the physical possibilities of such an assault being able to take place. The maid was young with DSK in his 60s, at 5’10” much taller than DSK and more heavily-built, with one observer stating “She could have kicked the crap out of him”. “. . she’s a big woman, how could he have overpowered her?”[48]Dominique Strauss-Kahn lawyers meeting with Manhattan prosecutors

https://www.silive.com/news/2011/07/dominique_straus...s.html
Many news reports from Europe claim the woman agreed (or offered) to perform oral sex, then attempted blackmail and extortion. Olivier Mazerolle, a senior political journalist at France’s BFM television, claimed to have obtained details from sources in the US, and maintains this is what actually occurred.[49]Now disgraced ex-IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn to get \$250,000 ‘golden parachute’… funded by U.S. TAXPAYERS

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1390651/Dis...dshake–taxpayer.html

“Is it reasonable to believe that a 62-year-old man, even one as oversexed as DSK is supposed to be, would emerge naked from the bathroom of his hotel suite sexually to confront a maid whom he had never met before, and whom he did not expect? Is it reasonable to believe that stark naked and wielding no weapon he could have forced a taller, younger and more muscular woman to commit oral sex twice [in 6 minutes], and that the transaction would have resulted without some level of participation on her part? And is it believable that she didn’t offer any resistance, cry out or flee when she presumably knew where the door was, having worked in the hotel for three and one-half years?”[50]The Dominique Strauss-Kahn Affair: To Proceed Or Not To Proceed?

https://www.forbes.com/sites/jameszirin/2011/08/05/t...oceed/

“It strains credulity to think an internationally respected financial leader would hurl himself naked from his hotel bathroom onto a decidedly unattractive maid who happened to be cleaning his room, then force her to perform oral sex on him. It’s all made to sound like the actions of a psychopath more than a lustful Frenchman.” It would seem absurd for a man who can hire young models or woo women from higher brackets, to forcibly rape a woman, then have a leisurely lunch with his daughter and finally get caught only because he himself gave away his whereabouts in multiple calls when trying to recover his mobile phone.

In the final version of events, the alleged victim committed multiple counts of perjury, tax fraud, visa and passport fraud, conspiracy to commit extortion, possible drug-related offenses, but neither the police nor the media appear to have any interest in pursuing these details. Nor was there any interest in the five bank accounts. The woman told 37 substantial lies, mostly under oath but, according to her lawyer, “She made some mistakes here, but that doesn’t mean she is not a rape victim.” Mistakes? It will be almost certain proof that this entire bizarre event was a political fraud organised at the highest levels, when we realise that no action was ever taken against the woman for her string of crimes and the unexplained cash.

The Missing Blackberry

This is exceptionally curious and one of the keys to the entire entrapment process. One of DSK’s mobile phones, a Blackberry that he used for IMF work and very personal calls, went missing. It seems that DSK had already packed his things, including his phones, prior to taking a shower and dressing to leave the hotel. After the encounter with the maid, he used this phone to call his daughter and confirm their lunch appointment. The maid admitted to remaining in the room at that time, and perhaps the other hotel employee was there at the same time. DSK then apparently placed the phone in his briefcase, after which it disappeared, and was never found.[51]One afternoon in Manhattan: Dominique Strauss-Kahn: what happened in the New York hotel?

DSK had already been warned that his phone had been hacked. A friend working in Sarkozy’s election office notified him that personal messages sent to his wife from that phone had been intercepted and read at Sarkozy’s office. The records obtained from BlackBerry show that the missing phone’s GPS circuitry was disabled at 12.51, preventing the phone from sending out signals identifying its location. It appears the phone never left the Sofitel. “Evidently unaware of what was happening at the Sofitel, he called the hotel from the taxi, asking if his phone had been found. When he was called back 13 minutes later, he told a hotel employee that he was at JFK airport. The police rushed there and, at 4:45, called him off the flight and took him into custody.”[52]https://www.theguardian.com/world/blog/2011/nov/28/d...heorym

Six out of 10 for the Dominique Strauss-Kahn conspiracy theory
Blackberry could not explain how the phone had been disabled, being something requiring extreme technical knowledge.

The “Dancing Israelis”

After the maid alleged that DSK sexually harassed her, the security team called John Sheehan, the security director for Accor, the French company that owns the Sofitel. His boss has ties to Ange Mancini, who was then Sarkozy’s coordinator for intelligence. Sheehan was seen on surveillance footage with an unidentified man who accompanied Diallo to the hotel security celebrating shortly before the police arrived: “The two men high-five each other, clap their hands, and do what looks like an extraordinary dance of celebration that lasts for three minutes.” One of DSK’s attorneys, William Taylor, who claims to have seen the footage, tells the Post, “They could have won the lottery. It seems directly related to speaking with Diallo and calling the police.”[53]One afternoon in Manhattan: Dominique Strauss-Kahn: what happened in the New York hotel?

Media Frenzy and Speculation

“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 demonisation is serving as the substitute.” Everything about this story has a stink of conspiracy, of sexual entrapment of the kind that got Julian Assange, Mordechai Vanunu and many others. Even more curious was that none of the mainstream media cared to connect the dots to see where they led.

When reviewing the accounts of this tale, I couldn’t shake the feeling that the mass media, at least in the English-speaking world, had been instructed to speculate as wildly as possible and to fabricate any details they considered useful or titillating. “James Cox, law professor at Duke University, said: he was surprised that the prosecution had not done more homework on their witness before making such strong statements about the case and the strength of its witness.”[56]Dominique Strauss-Kahn freed as case details aired outside court room

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2011/jul/01/domini...-court
There were many serious questions over their handling of the case, especially the notorious “perp walk”, which saw DSK paraded in front of press cameras.

The media focus centered on the story of the alleged victim rather than on who was pulling the strings behind the scenes in what visibly appears to have been a political frame-up. The NYPD, the prosecutor, the CIA, were letting the media speculate publicly. The entire story, based only on speculation and a complete absence of facts, has the look and feel of giving the gullible public just enough information to come to the wrong conclusion.

The NYT

In fact, the most likely hypothesis, which is that DSK was deliberately set up, was not only totally avoided by the mainstream media, but any reader comments at the time were either not posted (NYT) or were deleted immediately after posting. There is ample evidence that the media – especially in the US – had been instructed to monitor and control all comment on this issue.

At the time, it was fascinating to watch the NYT during the three months of this episode. There was no way to avoid the conclusion that the editors were firmly controlling the reader comments on all their DSK articles. Not even a hint of a suggestion of a setup was permitted until one article on July 6, long after all the damage had been done. The comment threads were constantly led to topics like “rich white man, poor black woman”, or the US legal system, or how money can buy freedom or how even liars can be raped. Whenever a comment was posted that was “off-topic”, more correct ones were inserted to bring readers back into focus.

There seemed little doubt that the NYT was on the same page as the NYPD, the DA and, we must assume, the CIA and the City of London. Not only did the editors control the posts, they added some of their own, to the “Highlights”, to help readers focus. Among them was this gem: “While France will now criticize us, we should remember that French people enjoy few of the rights we do when accused. French “authorities” can hold people for up to one year without charges in an attempt to pressure them for cooperation in a criminal case. In Europe, the presumption generally is that the person accused is guilty and he must prove otherwise.”

It is astonishing that the Times had the gall to do this. France can retain a person for no more than 24 to 48 hours before release, and the NYT editors would surely be aware of this.[57]Arrested in France – Legal Framework of Police detention

https://www.sba-avocats.com/criminal-defense-attorne...y.html
No newspaper would make such a claim without checking its accuracy, so we must conclude they knowingly made a false statement, seriously maligning France in the process and leaving a disturbingly dishonest impression on the 80% of Americans who are sufficiently uninformed and gullible to believe anything.

The “Settlement”

The New York Times first reported that DSK had agreed to pay the maid \$6 million as a settlement, attributing the news to “French media sources”,[58]Hotel Worker Settles Claim Strauss-Kahn Forced Sex

https://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/11/nyregion/strauss-...k.html
while the same French media sources attributed the claim to the NYT. Other media claimed that “friends of Strauss-Kahn” offered the chambermaid’s impoverished family in Guinea, West Africa, a ‘seven-figure’ sum to convince her to drop the charges. Then almost everyone joined in with the identical claim,[59]Strauss-Kahn’s friends ‘secretly tried to pay off “raped” hotel maid’s family in Guinea’.

It became a circus, with DSK’s lawyers stating the claims as “flatly false”.

Perhaps another WHO Worldwide Pandemic

One of the more entertaining bits of the media having fun was the “evidence” suddenly surfacing from every corner that DSK was only one of perhaps thousands of such. My favorite was the UK Daily Mail’s claim that maids at the New York Hilton and “in various other hotels around the U.S.” were having to hide from male guests running around naked in the hotel corridors, screaming “I need sex”.[63]https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1390177/Cal...k.html The newspaper helpfully suggested all hotel maids needed to wear ‘panic buttons’.

The Question of Diplomatic Immunity

This was curious. As Managing Director of the IMF, DSK should have had full diplomatic immunity, not that the US would honor it, and in fact the judge in the hearing dismissed this. But it appears the IMF had the power to demand immunity for its CEO, and in fact the IMF Board had at least one meeting to discuss the matter.[64]10 Questions About Evidence In The Case Of The Chambermaid Versus Dominique Strauss-Kahn

[65]Former IMF boss claims immunity in civil case

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2011/9/27/former-imf-...l-case
No information was released, but IMF rules stipulate an 85% agreement on all decisions and, with the US controlling 18% of the vote, we can assume the US exercised its veto and killed DSK’s one chance to escape the trap. He would still have full immunity from civil suits, however. This aspect was totally ignored by all the media, and should not have been.

Rikers Island

Rikers Island is widely-known as one of the most brutal and dangerous prisons in the world. It “has always been a place of exceptional violence”, with weapons everywhere, with rival gangs ruling the cellblocks, a place notorious for the brutality of the prison guards and the deranged mental instability of most inmates, 1,000 of which are stabbed or killed each year.[66]What Is Rikers Island?

[67]Strauss-Kahn arrest: IMF head detained at Rikers Island

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-13420440
Only the dregs of society are sent there, and incarceration for a civilised person would be terrifying to say the least – which would have been the entire point of sending DSK there. The prospect of remaining there for months until trial, coupled with the slim prospects of survival, would encourage a man to comply with any conditions demanded for bail and removal – including resigning his job as MD of the IMF. DSK was sent to Rikers on May 17, presented with his options the next morning, and his official resignation processed on the following day, May 19, when he was released on bail.

Persons of Interest

In order to properly connect the dots, we need to identify some of the main players and their relations to each other.

Frank G. Wisner Sr.

Frank Wisner has been described as a “master diplomat” (Deputy Assistant Secretary of State under Dean Acheson) and also a “master spy”, (America’s least-known but most famous spy). He was none of those things. Wisner was a criminally-insane Jewish psychopath,[68]Clinton’s Jewish US. Ambassadors:

the co-founder of the CIA and the designer and operator of Operation Gladio in Europe[69]CIA: Frank G. Wisner arrived in Cairo

https://www.voltairenet.org/article168337.html
which he ran together with Allen Dulles (then head of the CIA), and which was one of the bloodiest terror programs ever inflicted on the world. He was largely responsible for the American coup that removed Mohammed Mossadegh as Prime Minister in Iran in 1953, and also primarily responsible for the overthrow of Jacobo Arbenz Guzmán in Guatemala in 1954, one of the dirtiest, bloodiest, and most unjust of such US government atrocities.

Frank G. Wisner Jr.

Young Frank, also seconded into the US Foreign Service, was an American Ambassador to several countries as well as Under Secretary of State for International Security Affairs under Bill Clinton. He also served as Deputy Executive Secretary of the Department of State under Cyrus Vance. Wisner Jr. was heavily involved in the tragedy in Yugoslavia and primarily behind the push for the independence of Kosovo to help Madeline Albright and George Soros “take over” the communications infrastructure there (an \$800 million gift). However, Wisner Jr. is best known for his financial crimes for which the term “unscrupulous” would be something of an understatement. Wisner was part of the inner circle at Enron whose financial manipulations ruined countless thousands of investors, and he was the Vice-Chairman of AIG when its share prices collapsed by 95%, prior to the Khazar-dictated taxpayer bailout.[70]CIA: Frank G. Wisner arrived in Cairo

https://www.voltairenet.org/article168337.html

Pál (Paul) Sarközy de Nagy-Bocsa

This man, a Greek-Hungarian Jew, was the father of Nicolas Sarkozy who became the President of France. Paul married several times, Nicholas resulting from the first marriage with Andrée Mallah. His father and birth mother both abandoned Nicholas and he was taken in by Paul’s third wife Christine de Ganay after her divorce with Paul. Christine de Ganay subsequently married Frank Wisner Jr, who more or less raised Nicholas and taught him everything he knew (at least all the dirty parts of American and French politics and finance). “It was [Wisner] who introduced then-teenage Sarkozy to CIA insiders and facilitated his entry into French political circles”, and one of Wisner’s sons was Sarkozy’s campaign manager.

Cyrus Vance Sr.

Cyrus Roberts Vance Sr. was an American lawyer and Secretary of State under President Jimmy Carter. He was also Deputy Secretary of Defense, Secretary of the Army, and General Counsel of the Department of Defense.

Cyrus Vance Jr.

This is where things become interesting. Cyrus Vance was the Manhattan District Attorney, conveniently appointed just in time to handle the three most notorious sexual scandal cases in recent memory (all involving Jews): Jeffrey Epstein, Harvey Weinstein, and Dominique Strauss-Kahn. In the case of Jeffrey Epstein, Vance’s office argued in court for dismissal of charges and his removal from a sex offender’s list, claiming “there are no real victims here.”[71]Cyrus Vance’s Office Sought Reduced Sex-Offender Status for Epstein

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/09/nyregion/cyrus-va...n.html
Vance would later argue that his “assistant DA” made these court representations without his knowledge. We are to believe that in the most spectacular sexual abuse and sexual-entrapment scheme ever recorded, and certainly the biggest case in his career, Vance had no idea what his own assistant was proposing in court. It was Vance (in an arranged plea bargain) who managed to free Epstein from a life sentence and give him only 13 months in prison where he was allowed out during the day (to look after business) and only slept in the prison at night.

Does anyone recall Epstein being given a ‘perp walk’? Was he incarcerated at Rikers Island? Did he have to post millions in bail, wear a bracelet and have to hire armed guards at his own expense (\$240,000 per month for DSK)? Was Jeffrey Epstein denied bail because he was a flight risk? No.

Something similar occurred with Harvey Weinstein, with Vance declining to prosecute the Hollywood producer in spite of the huge amount of evidence against him. But it wasn’t all bad. Vance did manage to obtain a sentence of 428 years against another serial rapist who had the misfortune of not having been born Jewish.

Let’s review some connections. Nicholas Sarkozy, our Jewish-Hungarian midget, was raised by the Jew Frank Wisner who worked for Cyrus Vance Sr., and who introduced Sarkozy to the (Jewish-created) CIA and to US and French politics. Sarkozy and Cyrus Vance Jr. were of the same age (one year apart) and certainly knew each other well since their fathers worked together and their families socialised together. And who was appointed as the lead prosecutor against DSK? Cyrus Vance Jr. In what was clearly one of the most egregious set-ups in recent memory, Vance was later loudly applauded by the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and other US media, as well as by multiple government officials for “acting with integrity” in a case where a poor woman made “a credible accusation against a very powerful man”.

Sarkozy and Mossad

Nicholas Sarkozy was confirmed as a Mossad agent, the details revealed in articles by Le Figaro, an influential French daily, providing evidence of Sarkozy having been recruited as an Israeli spy, “one of the thousands of Jewish citizens of countries other than Israel who cooperate with the Mossad”. This information was apparently given to the French police in detail prior to Sarkozy’s election as president, but suppressed until the scandal emerged. “This was so important an issue that within 24 hours after Le Figaro’s exposé, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was on a state visit to France” – ostensibly to discuss Iran’s nuclear agenda, but in fact an attempt to deal with the fallout.

According to media reports, the French police were investigating documents concerning Sarkozy’s alleged espionage activities against France on behalf of Mossad, which Le Figaro claimed dated as far back as 1983, which was when Israeli prime minister Menachem Begin recruited the “young and promising” Sarkozy as part of the ordered infiltration of the French ruling Gaullist Party.

Tristane Banon

Tristane Banon, a 32-year-old journalist, claimed that DSK sexually assaulted and tried to rape her a decade earlier. She is “the daughter of one of Strauss-Kahn’s discarded mistresses and the goddaughter of his second wife.”[72]The Dominique Strauss-Kahn Affair: To Proceed Or Not To Proceed?

https://www.forbes.com/sites/jameszirin/2011/08/05/t...oceed/
This woman, with her lingering memory of an encounter with DSK from 9 years prior, choose the correct moment to bring it to the public. And this latter is also surpassingly strange; the mother came to the defense of her daughter by “confessing” that she also had an affair with DSK at around the same time. How this would help her daughter’s case was not made clear. At least, not to me.

Her case was so weak (and 9 years too late) that there was no chance for it to lead anywhere, but it would help to keep DSK out of the Presidential Palace. Mrs. Banon worked for atlantico.fr, a pro-Sarkozy website which was co-founded by Arnaud Dassier, the man behind Sarkozy’s web campaign of 2007, and the man who started the smear campaign against DSK a few weeks before May 15th. Of interest is Banon’s claim that “politics played no part” in her decision to air this old issue again, that she “was not approached by the Right” to fire another torpedo into DSKs political career.[73]How France hid the sleazy truth about the rutting chimpanzee

Lagarde was a hard-headed “corporatist” member of the Bilderberg Group and the WEF, and definitely in favor of the new world order intended to preserve Khazarian Jewish hegemony worldwide. The IMF Executive Board issued a press release on June 28 2011, confirming her appointment as IMF Managing Director.[76]Strauss-Kahn arrest: IMF head detained at Rikers Island

The report from the prosecutor was released to the media June 29, and presented to the court on July 1. Lagarde’s succession to the IMF occurred a few days prior to a New York Court ruling which completely exonerated Dominique Strauss Khan on the basis of lack of evidence. It apparently wasn’t of concern that Lagarde was under criminal investigation at the time for an illegal application of some \$400 million in funds.

French Media Reports: Who Told Who What When?

One indication that DSK’s political enemies were implicated is the fact, made public by the French press, that Sarkozy’s political team in France knew about DSK’s arrest not only before the NYC police announced it, but before the actual arrest had occurred. In fact, Sarkozy’s office and the French media reported DSK’s arrest while he would still have been in a taxi on the way to the airport. No one has attempted to explain this. The evidence is that the NYC Hotel Manager called France’s Presidential Palace over an hour before the news was released in NYC, which is how the French media knew that DSK was going to be arrested before the arrest actually took place.

The first person in France to announce the arrest was Jonathan Pinet, a campaigner for Sarkozy’s party, who apparently tweeted the info at the time DSK was in the taxi to meet his daughter for lunch. And he apparently made other posts only minutes after the arrest itself. Shortly after, Arnaud Dassier, Sarkozy’s campaign director, was also commenting on the event, sooner than any journalist in the US. Confronted with this strange coincidence, he said he got the information from a friend who knew someone working in the NYC Sofitel hotel. How would anyone at the Sofitel know whether or when an arrest was made? Why would the NYPD report to the Sofitel, and why was all this information crossing the Atlantic in real time?

More interesting, Xavier Graff, the duty officer at Accor in Paris, sent e-mails several weeks after DSK’s arrest claiming full credit for “bringing down” the IMF chief.[78]The plot to destroy DSK

https://nypost.com/2011/11/27/the-plot-to-destroy-dsk/

Humanity at the Crossroads
Also worthy of note is that the top management of the ACCOR Hotel group in France was known to have close ties to Claude Gueant, Sarkozy’s closest advisor and his Minister of the Interior. The hotel’s Director of Security was a former agent of DGSE (French CIA), who had worked under Sarkozy personally. And finally, Ray Kelly, the head of the NYPD, had been decorated “Chevalier de la Legion d’Honneur” by Sarkozy himself, the two men having had a close personal relationship with much contact since that time.

The French Presidential Election

DSK survived the first assault (in the US) because the widespread public feeling in France was that it was clearly a staged event, a “set-up”, and still leaving him as the favorite and with a strong political base. Thus, he was wounded but not destroyed, so the charade proceeded to Plan B, with accusations of rape or attempted rape, and of arranging the hire of prostitutes for orgies. Just as in the US, all charges were eventually dropped because there had never been any supporting evidence for those allegations, but the court cases continued until the man’s name had been sufficiently blackened that his political career descended to ground zero.

Ruining DSK would not have raised Sarkozy’s standing in the polls; he was still widely disliked and considered “crazy”. But this would have removed his most dangerous opponent, leaving no one else with sufficient public status to challenge him. So, one clear purpose of the entire event was to ensure Sarkozy’s re-election by destroying his only credible opponent. Sarkozy was definitely running scared; not only being attacked on the streets in France, but in a then-recent appearance in Algeria the crowds were all yelling “Get out! F*** off, Sarkozy”.

A former justice minister, Robert Badinter, called DSK’s treatment “a lynching, a murder by media.” The “perp walk”, the unshaven pervert-in-a-trench-coat photos, is a perverted and sadistic US tradition resurrected from the medieval era, and forms an inexcusable and humiliating breach of the principle of the presumption of innocence. Besides that, we had the “suicide watch”, the grossly unreasonable bail conditions that included from the first day his resignation from the IMF.

It was all designed to inflict the maximum possible public humiliation to forestall any chance of DSK’s return to politics. Also, the charges were not dropped, nor his passport returned, until after the French election primaries. To represent the Socialist Party and be their leader, he would have had to have been in France for the primaries which closed on July 13. However, his court date was set for July 18. This was not a mere unfortunate coincidence.

You don’t need to be a conspiracy theorist to smell something fishy here; in fact, it requires a leap of faith to not smell the odor. The proverbial elephant in the room should be obvious to all readers. 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 desperation on the part of Israel and the City of London to remove Strauss-Kahn from French Presidential contention in order to preserve Sarkozy – their “man in Paris”. The Jews and Zionists in Israel were desperate to maintain Sarkozy in power because he would ensure the protection of Israel’s 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 Sarkozy’s election: “we are persuaded that the new president will continue eradicating anti-Israeli resistance”.

“The arrest of [DSK] 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 . . . to speed up his replacement as Managing Director of the IMF.”

The IMF and the Dollar

As head of the IMF, DSK was far from a saint in dealing with indebted countries. It was he who oversaw the destruction and permanent colonisation of Greece – an enormous sovereign disaster of which too few people seem aware. And in this, he was definitely following the instructions and template of the Khazarian mafia in the City of London. If you don’t know the details, you may care to read this: Humanity at the Crossroads.[79]https://www.unz.com/lromanoff/humanity-at-the-crossr...ads-2/ You need reference only the brief paragraphs on Greece.

One of the circumstances that many considered a precipitating cause of DSK’s removal, was his conviction of the need for a new world currency, suggesting that SDRs be used much more broadly instead of the US dollar for international trade and payments,[80]UK Telegraph – International Monetary Fund director Dominique Strauss-Kahn calls for new world currency

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/currency/8316834...y.html
leading to a prevailing theory that the US\$ be removed. Thierry Meyssan wrote a scholarly article on this,[81]Obama, financial war and the elimination of DSK

https://www.voltairenet.org/article170083.html
and Mike Whitney wrote an opinion piece claiming “Dominique Strauss-Kahn Was Trying to Torpedo the Dollar.”[82]Dominique Strauss-Kahn Was Trying to Torpedo the Dollar

https://www.ibtimes.com/dominique-strauss-kahn-was-t...285599

But DSK was in no way arguing for the elimination of the US\$ in international settlements as for the creation of more stability since poor nations were easily whipsawed by borrowing in US\$ at low rates then subjected to bankruptcy when rates rose. It’s true this wouldn’t have earned him many friends since the bankruptcies were part of the plan. But in any case, no changes to the world system could have been made without the cooperation of the US. It doesn’t seem widely-known, but changes to IMF protocols require an 85% approval vote while the US controls 17% of the votes – giving the US a de facto veto on everything.

A larger part of the problem was that the IMF (under DSK) was pushing hard for other nations like China and Russia to obtain a larger and more realistic representation at the IMF. DSK tried to push through reforms that would have considerably increased the share of emerging countries, and that would have produced enemies in all the entrenched Western countries who would be loath to surrender their financial power over the rest of the world.

But much worse than this, DSK was strongly recommending that nations abandon much of their income tax regime and draw their revenue from inheritance taxes on the extremely wealthy. A suggestion like this to the same nations that house the Rothschilds, Sassoons, Warburgs and Sebag-Montefioris would be equivalent to a declaration of war. Almost as bad, DSK was also on record as stating that the FED’s excessively loose monetary policies (directed from the City of London) were responsible for the massive transfers of wealth to the top 1% in each economic cycle. He stated flatly that it was the FED’s excess liquidity that causes the sharp rises in inequality “because that liquidity does not fall into every pocket”.

And worse again, he also stated that the nationalisation of infrastructure, land, and even corporate interests, were “indispensable” for “national independence”. In his words, “The exhaustion of the traditional tools of social democracy, notably redistribution, has led us to redefine a new socialism . . . That rests on the correction of innate market inequalities at root. That leads to a society which permits each person to develop their talents independently of their social conditions at birth. That’s a new humanism which I think we need.”

Suggesting socialism, inheritance confiscations, nationalisations and wealth redistribution to the Satanist trillionaire capitalists who are at the pinnacle of world financial power, is not a way to win friends. Nor is any suggestion of “humanism”. I suspect this latter point alone would have caused his demise, since the template of the Khazar Jews for the past 100 years has been to push small countries into unpayable debt traps and then confiscate all the nation’s infrastructure, arable land, and water aquifers in lieu of cash payment. In these three items, I believe DSK signed his own death warrant three times.[83]Dominique Strauss-Kahn: This Crisis Is Harder To Handle Than The Great Depression

One of his allies said: “Everyone knows that his weakness is seducing women. That’s how they got to him. . . the aim was to “decapitate the IMF”.

This is perhaps an aside, but where do you suppose the World Bank and IMF obtain their trillions to lend to undeveloped nations? They are not banks that have deposits to lend. The money comes from the Jewish financiers in the City of London, and it is they who direct the terms and who push for unrepayable loans, and it is they who confiscate the infrastructure and land.[85]World Map of Privatisation

https://www.bluemoonofshanghai.com/politics/5634/
This is so true that the Rothschilds recently established a new “bank” just to control all their holdings of arable land that has been confiscated from poor countries. In case you don’t know, the Jewish-controlled government of Ukraine, the “breadbasket of Europe”, amended its laws to permit huge swaths of the world’s most fertile soil to disappear forever into this Khazarian abyss.

Epilogue: Who Did This?

One fact I didn’t mention above is that DSK had been warned by friends in various positions that he would become the victim of a plot using some form of sexual entrapment. Also, the French media revealed from an interview with DSK’s wife that he had said to her several months prior, “They are out to get me“. Who were “they”? Certainly not the NYPD, who had neither cause nor leverage.

Why would NYPD detectives and prosecutors be so irresponsible as to set out, deliberately and apparently vengefully, to destroy the career of the second most relevant person in France, based solely on the word of a woman who was already known as a hotel prostitute? In a real world, they could have made a complete investigation and then arrested DSK on his return to the US. He would have to return, since the IMF offices are in Washington.

Nor could it have been the US State Department. The head of the World Bank is traditionally selected by the Jewish handlers of the US government, while the head of the IMF is traditionally filled by the Jewish financiers in Europe. Thus, the US administration also had no leverage, even if they felt they had cause.

It could not have been Nicholas Sarkozy and his election team. They might well have had considerable “cause”, but Sarkozy didn’t have the power to engineer something this vast, especially in the US where it required intense cooperation from the police, the prosecutors, the courts, the media – and the silence of the US government. Sarkozy’s team was clearly kept informed, on what would appear to be nearly a minute-by-minute basis, but they weren’t the engineers. There is no way the US government would give a (disliked) European politician the freedom and power to commit such an immense theatrical crime on US soil, merely to assist his own re-election. Nor would they permit him to use their police, courts and prosecutors to fraudulently force a rival’s resignation from an unrelated UN position.

If the US were concerned that DSK was trying to torpedo the dollar, it is conceivable the White House might have sent someone to the NYPD to say, “This guy is causing us trouble; give him a hard time”. But even the President of the United States hasn’t the power to approach the NYPD and the courts and instruct them to launch a trap based entirely on fraudulent charges and faked evidence to destroy the head of the IMF and force his removal. The President doesn’t have the power to engineer something that hugely illegal which would require participation from so many parties, including the obvious payment to the “victim” for her fraudulent testimony. Such a thing would be unprecedented and would leak. The US administration might well attempt to profit from such an event already in progress, but would never dare to plan and execute something of this nature.

The only people with the power to do this, to plan and execute all the portions of the US side of this theatrical performance, and to obtain the necessary silence from all participants, are the alphabet agencies. The (Khazar-controlled) CIA has the power to say, “This is a matter of the utmost national security. You will comply with our instructions in all details and, if you dare ever breathe a word of this, you will most likely disappear and your family along with you.” The CIA could enforce obedience from the NYPD, the hotel, the prosecutor’s office, the judges and the courts, the phone companies, the airport authorities, and could easily arrange the multiple bank accounts and mobile phones. They are skilled at creating and planting evidence, and they have the power to control media information and disinformation. That’s what they do, and their authority is more or less absolute.

This is an aside, but an important one. In an interview with the wife of Lee Harvey Oswald (JFK’s alleged assassin), she was quoted as saying, “The answer to the Kennedy assassination lies with the [Rothschild-controlled] Federal Reserve. It is wrong to blame it on only James Jesus Angleton and the CIA, per se. They are all fingers on the same hand. The people who control the money are above the CIA.”

The question then remains, from whom were the CIA taking their instruction? It would not have been from the US administration, and certainly not from Sarkozy’s election team. Who was it, who was “out to get” DSK? The answers to all the questions trace to the Jewish bankers in the City of London, the master to whom both Israel’s Mossad and the CIA ultimately report, and these are the people who, for their own reasons, wanted a final extermination of DSK, to utterly ruin the man for his disobedience, and remove him forever as a potential nuisance. DSK was released on bail (from Rikers Island) only on condition that he resign his position as MD of the IMF. This wasn’t the NYPD’s idea, nor the position of the US government. This could have emanated only from the Khazarian mafia in the City of London. It was they who wanted DSK removed from office.

It is not the intention of this essay to exonerate DSK or to dismiss his behavior as irrelevant or trivial. The man was widely known to have “a serious problem” with women. Reports were that his first act on entering a room was to carefully assess the seduction potential. Indeed, his sexual proclivities would seem to have crossed the line into pathology. During the court hearings in France, a 30-year-old prostitute named Florence said she took part in 11 orgies over several years where DSK was in attendance, and testified that “At these evenings, DSK had sex with every girl in the room.” I didn’t dwell on this in the body of the essay because my purpose was to illuminate the machinations that exist behind the scenes in our clean world of righteousness, democracy and rule of law.

It is easy, and perhaps justified, to feel no sympathy for DSK, especially given that he had received prior warnings of precisely such a circumstance and his obvious full awareness that “they” were out “to get him”. That would normally compel extreme caution but, perhaps after decades of such behavior apparently exercised with impunity, the man felt invincible. We can easily conclude he was hardly blameless for his own downfall and might even feel he got what he deserved. But again, my purpose was to expose the powers behind the throne.

There is another item here that I reserved to the end because I haven’t yet been able to positively document it, this being an obscure media report some time after the dust had settled where the maid “confessed she had been obliged to tell that story as if it were true. She had been threatened by the authorities to be immediately thrown out of the country” and deported back to Guinea if she refused. I raise this here because, if true, this fills in all the gaps and makes every part of the tale consistent. In support of this, you may recall that One of the girls who ws ‘raped’ by Julian Assange said that she was also coerced by the authorities to make her claims. This was the same girl who, immediately after filing her charges against Assange, boarded the next plane home to Israel.

Supporting evidence for this is circumstantial, but powerful and actually quite obvious if we think about it. One of the two items that made little sense was that the plotters of this escapade seemed to have selected the least attractive maid in all of NYC, not the most logical choice for a ‘honey trap’. The other item was the apparent (and seemingly deliberate) unraveling of the prosecution’s case from the first day.

I draw your attention to the claims in the media that, “under very tough questioning by assistant district attorneys, she admitted the asylum narrative was a fabrication”. If you think about it, there was no sensible reason for the woman’s tales on her asylum application to have surfaced for this event. This was years prior and irrelevant in total to anything that was happening. Why bring it all up then, and suddenly reveal it to have been fabricated? Surely the immigration authorities weren’t involved in the maid’s claims of DSK attacking her. How would Cyrus Vance even know those details from a totally different government agency so many years back? And what cause would he have to be suspicious? Plus, it was none of his business. The media reports said that “after brutal questioning” by “the prosecution” (Vance’s DA office), the woman admitted those were all lies. THE PROSECUTION? The prosecution was interested in her evidence about DSK, not about details of her immigration that were long in the past. Why would the prosecutors dig into her history to that extent, at that time? The defense might have wanted to do it, but surely not the prosecution.

From the onset, I couldn’t shake the feeling that the prosecutors must have already known the whole story of the woman, including her false asylum application, her declaring a friend’s child as a dependent on her tax returns, and many other criminal matters, that they knew the case would fall apart and that they were stage-managing its disintegration. They didn’t need a conviction. They needed DSK’s resignation from the IMF, and to keep him in custody long enough for the French Presidential primaries to expire. A simple accusation to justify charges and temporary incarceration would suffice. No matter if it all fell apart later.

One thing I noticed in all the media reports were vague “admissions” from DSK and his lawyers that the encounter was “consensual”, but these ‘admissions’ were not quotes nor directly attributable to either DSK or his lawyers. They were merely undocumented claims made by the media. There was never actually any evidence presented to support these admissions and, while the woman and her lawyer were often directly quoted, neither DSK nor his lawyers had that privilege. All comments attributed to them were second- or third-hand. In other words, there may actually have been no sexual encounter at all.

A theory that actually fits all the facts is that the woman was selected BECAUSE her past made her vulnerable to deportation and she was thus easily conscripted. It is entirely possible they grabbed this woman because they already knew her past falsehoods and had the leverage over her to make her participate, paid her well, and just let the case unfold without any sexual encounter being necessary or taking place. The woman’s physical attraction is then irrelevant. The accusations and charges alone would produce the necessary results, and they could then progressively collapse their own case. Mission accomplished, and nobody would ever suspect anything. The collapse of the case would be blamed on the DA’s incompetence – as it actually was – and we would all be looking for the answers in precisely the wrong direction.

One person wrote me to say, “The minor inconsistencies and implausibilities in the account seem to suggest that nobody had bothered to create a solid script for the frame-up, which seems pretty odd. . . the plot would be extremely difficult and complex to set up, very likely to quickly unravel.” Exactly correct. A solid script wasn’t necessary because the plot was meant to unravel. Again, a conviction was not the goal; the only objective (desired and achieved) was DSK’s resignation from the IMF. If DSK’s lawyers hadn’t discovered the 5 bank accounts and the 3 mobile phones, it would have been flawless.

DSK is a Jew, until recently one of the world’s most powerful men, yet still far removed from the “inner circle” of the Khazar mafia in London. If this is what these people will so freely do to one of their own, you can imagine the rickety scaffolding on which the rest of us stand. There is no shortage of unusual and suspicious deaths of those daring to reveal inconvenient truths – or threatening to reveal them. Think of Gary Webb, Michael Hastings and Anne Heche. Think of Robert Maxwell, the Jewish media mogul (real name: Ján Ludvík Hyman Binyamin Hoch) and Mossad’s ‘assisted suicide’ (see note 86) in helping him fall naked off his yacht in the middle of the night to drown in the Atlantic Ocean, shortly after boasting that “they can’t do anything to me because I know where all the bodies are buried.”

Lastly, it must not go unnoticed that the New York Times was a leader in this escapade, “setting the agenda for the nation”[87]Propaganda and the Media — Part 3 – Establishing and Controlling the Narrative

https://www.unz.com/lromanoff/propaganda-and-the-med...ative/
and clearly being “a finger on the same hand” as the Khazarian mafia in the City of London. All the Western media lie to their readers and viewers, but the NYT carries a special responsibility for the power of its disinformation and misinformation practices. The day needs to come soon when the NYT is no longer respected as a source of information, but instead despised as a major link in the chain of fascism and fear that will soon bind all of us.

    DSK was portrayed as a rampaging rapist, a coked-up brute of sorts. In reality he was a short, weak fuddy-duddy who was up in age (b. ’49). The maid could have easily beat him up. That doesn’t mean he’s not capable of being some sort of sex creep, just that the claims against him seem implausible. He was targeted big time apparently with the full participation of the NYT and other media. One takeaway is that the elites who run things are a bunch of decadent and sexually pervy bunch that have nothing in common with the mass of people in their respective countries. This is who is in charge of your life, who decides if your life has any value or not.

  5. The question was whether or not to embrace the story, or to write it off as a “conspiracy”.

    DSK was sent to Rikers on May 17, presented with his options the next morning, and his official resignation processed on the following day, May 19, when he was released on bail.

    In my own mind this quote was the tipping point in the decision. Using an extremely violent prison to hold an important foreign diplomat was simply over the top.

    So in absence of evidence to the contrary, I’m quite willing to embrace Mr. Romanoff’s ideas about what happened. It begins to look like Jeremy Corbyn was lucky he didn’t get a full DSK workover

    Russia had better watch its backside, for the Apartheid state has immense influence in the West.

    Yes, it was blindingly obvious as a CIA ratfuck from the get-go. What I never understood was the why. Explanations trickled in about DSK’s platform jeopardizing this or that commercial interest. By contrast this piece hits the spot.

    Sarkozy as CIA agent of influence, Shemp-dipped as an Izzie agent (anybody good naturally has pocket litter leading to various countries; Imran Awan was the champ, with breadcrumbs pointing back to half the G-77, to the point that he buffed up his graymail cred with that hilarious business card for “Cars International A.”)

    Strauss as Izzie enemy is less convincing. He sucked a lot of Zionazi cock himself.

    What was the impetus for an IMF purge? IMF quota reallocation was delayed in 2011, so that might have been a factor. In 2010 China said, Hey how come IMF surveillance does such a shitty job of surveilling the reserve currency issuer? The result was the Integrated Surveillance Decision, which wasn’t total bullshit so US bankers would naturally hate it. China presumably liked his replacement, LaGarde, because she was blackmailable, she had a Waldheim-type heart plug for secure control.

    DSK would clearly be less controllable than Sarkozy at either GOF or IMF. So it seems there was no DSK decision that tore it, just general maintence for CIA’s French satellite. Dynastic CIA nomenklatura Wisner just liked having a head-of-state skin on the wall.

  9. The answers to all the questions trace to the Jewish bankers in the City of London, the master to whom both Israel’s Mossad and the CIA ultimately report

    As a Christian interested in prophecy, my working hypothesis is that the City of London is the city referenced in Revelation 17:18: “And the woman whom you saw is the great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth.” Conventional wisdom among biblical commenters is that this city [Babylon] is Rome. But it seems to me that, at least at this moment in time, the City of London is a better fit, given its practically absolute world power.

    This is a point that needs more digging. If you’re a banker you can pay off CIA. But if you’re CIA you can kill the bankers or torture them and get away with it.

A suggestion like this to the same nations that house the Rothschilds, Sassoons, Warburgs and Sebag-Montefioris would be equivalent to a declaration of war. Almost as bad, DSK was also on record as stating that the FED’s excessively loose monetary policies (directed from the City of London) were responsible for the massive transfers of wealth to the top 1% in each economic cycle. He stated flatly that it was the FED’s excess liquidity that causes the sharp rises in inequality “because that liquidity does not fall into every pocket”.

    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 desperation on the part of Israel and the City of London to remove Strauss-Kahn from French Presidential contention in order to preserve Sarkozy – their “man in Paris”. The Jews and Zionists in Israel were desperate to maintain Sarkozy in power because he would ensure the protection of Israel’s practices and the status of French Jews, while containing the anti-Israel sentiment in France.

    Nor could it have been the US State Department. The head of the World Bank is traditionally selected by the Jewish handlers of the US government, while the head of the IMF is traditionally filled by the Jewish financiers in Europe. Thus, the US administration also had no leverage, even if they felt they had cause.

    The question then remains, from whom were the CIA taking their instruction? It would not have been from the US administration, and certainly not from Sarkozy’s election team. Who was it, who was “out to get” DSK? The answers to all the questions trace to the Jewish bankers in the City of London, the master to whom both Israel’s Mossad and the CIA ultimately report, and these are the people who, for their own reasons, wanted a final extermination of DSK, to utterly ruin the man for his disobedience, and remove him forever as a potential nuisance. DSK was released on bail (from Rikers Island) only on condition that he resign his position as MD of the IMF. This wasn’t the NYPD’s idea, nor the position of the US government. This could have emanated only from the Khazarian mafia in the City of London. It was they who wanted DSK removed from office.

Even though Canada played a leading role in the US-NATO destruction of Libya, under Stephen Harper after Irwin Cotler accepted the UNSC’s no-fly zone, CBC NEVER told anything about the tens of thousands who died, bombed and massacred as a consequence of the pseudo-revolutions they fueled on Facebook.

  18. Although it’s pretty clear that DSK got fucked over, it makes no sense to attempt to retcon him into some sort of would-be White Knight who was going to reform the entire petrodollar system (and, what’s more, change the tax system in ways that the oligarchs wouldn’t like).

    Nobody – nobody, ever – gets within rifle-scope distance of a position like the one DSK had at the IMF, without being a ‘made guy’ (OK, or ‘gal’ – for fuck’s sake). NO EXCEPTIONS.

    You can take that to the bank.

    There are no ‘White Knights’ in positions like the one that DSK occupied.

    Likewise, there are no White Knights that survive the candidate-search process for any political party in any country in the West.

    Ditto the judiciary. Ditto the senior bureaucracy. Ditto all levels above entry-level in the ‘intelligence’ agencies.

    NO EXCEPTIONS.

    Everyone needs to get that through their thick skulls. If you think Made Guy A from “That Other Party” is a cunt, you can rest assured that his equivalent in “The Party You Like” is at least as big a cunt.

    Same for the cunts nominated to senior positions in the judiciary, the bureaucracy, the diplomatic service and the ‘intelligence’ agencies.

    They are all of a piece. They are cunts, first and foremost. If you haven’t got that through your thick skulls, you will waste precious energy trying to ensure that the Bad Guy (Made Guy A) is replaced by the “Lesser of Two Evils” candidate, Made Guy B.

    Leave that shit to the fuckwit proles. There is no “Lesser of Two Evils“: it’s just grasping cunts on both sides – they are ‘iso-evil‘.

    Also: ‘evil’ is such a fucktarded word – redolent with supernatural overtones that have no place in 21st century epistemology.

    They’re not evil – they’re just cunts. Grasping, scheming, vicious cunts.

    ISGWS that ‘cunt‘ here does not mean the wondrous and mystical lady-bits – the cooch; the ‘front bum’; the ‘vajayjay’; “where God put his axe”; “where the pig bit her”; the “camel toe”; the “moose knuckle”; or – for Kardashian-sized fat bitches – the “folded mattress”.

    Cunt in this context means “a person so despicable, so self-absorbed, and so hostile to human flourishing, that there’s literally no other expletive that does justice to their cuntery

    Hence: “Victoria Nuland Kagan is a cunt” isn’t saying that she’s literally a vagina – just that she’s a cunt. Totally different.

  19. I don’t think I’ve mentioned before: in 2008 – after Sarko the Runt-Goblin (whose rise was sponsored by organised crime in Neuilly-sur-Seine) became Président de la République, I got hauled in for questioning by the local gendarmerie for writing a piece that referred to him as “le nabot méchant, nez crochu” (the nasty dwarf, [with a] hooked nose).

    The accusation was “l’antisemitisme et négationnisme” – I asked where, exactly, there was any mention of Sarko being a Jew, because as far as I was aware he was nominally a Catholic by upbringing.

    I was just making the point that he was a nasty piece of work – as well as being short and ugly.

    When asked about ‘négationnisme‘ I said “Je le nie, absolument“.

    When the representative of the Procureur got that “Gotcha!!” look on his face, I clarified: “Il faut que je sois plus précis: je nie n’importe quelle allegation– c’est a vous de les prouver, donc allez-y.

    Then my passport got ‘lost’, and I got sent to a detention centre for two weeks. The food was delicious and plentiful because all the Muslim inmates thought I was an undercover cop (so they gave me their food, which they couldn’t eat because the centre wouldn’t declare if it was halal)

  23. @Larry Romanoff

    There’s nothing the least “wrong” with me, near as I can work out – I simply refuseto accept the porridge-brained idea that all discourse must take place within some window of ‘genteel’ expression so as not to ‘offend’ people with the cognitive constitution of a septuagenarian Methodist spinster.

    In this I am guided by precepts that date from a period when the Anglo-Saxons had advanced to a societal and cultural level that involved painting themselves blue and wearing animal skins (ditto the Normans who have furnished the English overlords – and whose hirelings are specifically tasked with delineating what constitutes “polite” expression… fuck them, too).

    I am specifically (in this instance) guided by Lucian – who wrote (in Quomodo historia conscribenda sit – “How history should be writ” )…

    τοιοῦτος οὖν μοι ὁ συγγραφεὺς ἔστω, ἄφοβος, ἀδέκαστος, ἐλεύθερος, παρρησίας καὶ ἀληθείας φίλος, ὡς ὁ κωμικός φησι, τὰ σῦκα σῦκα, τὴν σκάφην δὲ σκάφην ὀνομάσων, οὐ μίσει οὐδὲ φιλίᾳ τι νέμων οὐδὲ φειδόμενος ἢ ἐλεῶν ἢ αἰσχυνόμενος ἢ δυσωπούμενος, ἴσος δικαστής, εὔνους ἅπασιν ἄχρι τοῦ μὴ θατέρῳ ἀπονεῖμαι πλεῖον τοῦ δέοντος, ξένος ἐν τοῖς βιβλίοις καὶ ἄπολις, αὐτόνομος, ἀβασίλευτος, οὐ τί τῷδε ἢ τῷδε δόξει λογιζόμενος, ἀλλὰ τί πέπρακται λέγων.

    Loosely (and his ‘model’ is Thucydides)…

    There stands my model, then: fearless, incorruptible, independent, a believer in frankness and veracity; one that will call figs ‘figs’ and a tub ‘a tub’, making no concession to likes and dislikes, nor sparing any man for pity or respect or propriety; an impartial judge, kind to all, but too kind to none; a literary cosmopolite with neither suzerain nor king, never heeding what this or that man may think, but setting down the thing that befell.

    The “Methodist Spinster” classes – some of whom, sadly, have male genitalia – have been taught for centuries to believe that we must approach power as supplicants – sotto voce, and ‘by your leave Sir‘ with all the attendant grovelling and forelock-tugging.

    Calling tubs ‘tubs’ is, they are told, the behaviour of the ‘rustics’. Must’n’t ever behave like a farm-hand. Must’n’t have more than one small glass of Sherry, lest you unleash your animal passions.

    In this the Methodist Spinster classes are taking their guidance from the Olynthian traitor’s côterie rather than the Macedonians (who properly identified Lasthanes as ‘traitor’) – misunderstanding Plutarch who tells us –

    τῶν δὲ περὶ Λασθένην τὸν Ὀλύνθιον ἐγκαλούντων καὶ ἀγανακτούντων, ὅτι προδότας αὐτοὺς ἔνιοι τῶν περὶ τὸν Φίλιππον ἀποκαλοῦσι, σκαιοὺς ἔφη φύσει καὶ ἀγροίκους εἶναι Μακεδόνας καὶ τὴν σκάφην σκάφην λέγοντας.

    When the men with with Lasthenes, the Olynthian, complained indignantly because some of Philip’s associates called them traitors, he said that the Macedonians are by nature a rough and rustic people who call a tub a tub.

    Here’s the thing: Lasthenes was a traitor. It was Lasthenes who opened the gates of Olynthus, and enabled the Macedonians easy entry (so they didn’t have to fight their way in).

    If you genuinely take to heart the notion of “calling figs figs and tubs tubs“, and you search your personal lexicon for an appropriate descriptor for the political class and its behaviour over the last three centuries… well, the word that ‘works’ must be the most powerful pejorative in the language.

    In English, the most powerful pejorative is still “cunt“.

    It might well be the out-and-out most powerful word in the entire language. It certainly makes the Methodist Spinster classes’ ears burn.

    In French I might go a different way – perhaps ‘salopard‘ or ‘crapule‘ – despite those words having no relationship to lady-bits. ‘Con‘ or ‘connard‘ don’t properly convey the appropriate depth of the correct level of hatred toward these vermin.

    But to be frank the Frogs are shit at invective, because they still think argument has to be sophisticated – not realising that “Sophist” is best thought of as a pejorative.

    Larry,
    Please write a primer on the Khazar mafia. I searched TUR and didn’t find much, so its probably a pretty touchy subject that the controlled opposition is careful to avoid. I was surprised at how few people even mentioned it.

    Its probably like Sailer’s examples where the media reports a murder, and neglects to mention the race (black) of the perpetrator. So a similar fine line would be failing to mention that a predatory bank is controlled by the Khazar mafia.

    I got the general idea that the Khazar mafia are predatory bankers, and would like details and background on a deeper level, like you did in this essay.

    I keep seeing comments, here and there, about the bankers always being the winners in wars, regardless of which country wins the war. How does this work, and how do they perpetually get away with it?

    ~
    Its my understanding that the bankers cannibalized Great Britain, then tossed the carcass aside and switched their focus to the US. It now looks like they are going thru the same cycle with the US.

    However, that doesn’t make sense to me – they are vampires, but I don’t see any major victim, waiting on the side, that could replace the US in their schemes. What are the predatory bankers going to do when the US becomes a carcass?

    Is predatory banking so thoroughly tied to genetics that they are unable to leverage another model for maintaining their wealth and power?

    ~
    I noticed your comment in another essay that we need to start out thinking of two kinds of Jews, the ordinary kind and the evil Khazar kind, and would like to hear more about that.

    The predatory banking weasels are probably skilled in using ordinary Jews as scapegoats. I would hate to see mostly innocent, ordinary Jews crucified, while the evil kind goes scot-free.

    At this point it seems pretty solid that behavioral inclinations are genetically based. Are there two distinct genetic variations of Jews, and if so, then how do we tell them apart?

    ~
    If writing that primer on the Khazar mafia would be going too far and be too risky, then please explain the reasoning and thresholds.

    PetrOldSack commented:

    There seems to be some tolerance by the Khazarian Coupola for stories brought to the fore (as this analysis of Romanov a Jew just as well), when the facts are cold. Cold meaning as grayed as incapable as to rise any public dissent at large.

    So writing about hot, current facts is likely riskier than writing about history.

    I think a lot of people (especially on TUR) would be interested in knowing more about the fine line where the deep state switches from ignore to neutralize.

    ~
    As a side note, in another essay I noticed you criticizing Matthew Ehret for whitewashing the Khazar mafia. Sometimes I read his essays on http://www.strategic-culture.org However, there is a twist to them that I can’t put my finger on, and have become resistant to reading his essays.

    He seems to take a nationalist perspective against the globalist agenda. And yet, he was whitewashing the Khazar mafia in spite of having written essays about the bankers cannibalizing Great Britain.

    Also, his websites don’t say anything about his sources of funding. This is an example of why I can’t clearly see where he fits into world politics, and that in itself is suspicious.

    I keep wondering if he is controlled opposition for the globalists. He spends a lot of his time writing about old history, which fits in with the views of PetrOldSack on cold facts.

  26. Seems like there would be easier ways to convince a proven establish tool to follow orders.

    The suggestion is that DSK had ‘principles’ or ‘deeply held ideas that would lead to XYZ policies’.

    But isn’t the fact that he was already head of the IMF proof that he was a already a loyal soldier who knew intimately the power structure?

    This is where the author’s analysis breaks down, though I find it quite convincing. I simply don’t understand what would motivate DSK to disobey orders ‘from the top’. So, for me, we are missing something that would make Romanoff’s story ‘make sense’.

    As a Christian, if you haven’t yet seen it you might find interesting this (downloadable) book relating the London money power with descriptions in the Book of Revelations, by L. B. Woolfolk, 1890.
    The Great Red Dragon Or London Money Power
    https://ia801200.us.archive.org/17/items/LondonMoneyPowerGreatRedDragonWoolfolk1890/London%20Money%20Power%20Great%20Red%20Dragon%20Woolfolk%201890.pdf

    One part is about the London Money Power, and is materialist economics. The second part is about the Great Red Dragon, the beast of Revelations. The part about the London Money Power is excellent, in my estimate. The part linking events in Revelations to various historical events is more speculative, of course.

    But it is clear that the battle in Revelations is against a Money Power of some sort, and all the corruptions it brings. The incessant references to Babylon must be metaphorical, since the actual city of Babylon was long gone before Jesus arrived on the scene.

    My reading of the Book of Revelations is that the Money Power which Jesus tackled (infesting God’s house) is the Money Power that Revelations predicts will rise again, and will need to be defeated decisively in a final battle. In both the ancient Jerusalem temple and today’s City of London this Money Power is in the hands of Jewish money dealers (i.e. money changers who buy and sell money, financiers, bankers). Some historians have traced this banking cabal from the City of London back to Amsterdam, from there back to Venice, and from their back to ancient Rome.

    It’s noteworthy that all commodities are subject to swindles, but when the commodity is money itself it enables swindles on a far more massive scale. There’s an explanation of this in War Profiteers and Israel’s Bank.
    https://warprofiteerstory.blogspot.com/p/war-profiteers-and-israels-bank.html

    Woolfolk’s analysis, along with the evidence on Israel’s bank, suggest that these Talmudist financiers (and their pet project of Israel, in which Palestinians are treated like livestock) are the beast of Revelations. This Money Power has recently duped many Christians into essentially worshiping Israel instead of Jesus’ teachings. A good documentary on this deception is Christian Zionism: The Tragedy & The Turning

    A good article which spills the beans on Talmudic teachings is by Ron Unz. American Pravda: Oddities of the Jewish Religion
    https://www.unz.com/runz/american-pravda-oddities-of-the-jewish-religion/
    The article draws a lot from this book by Jewish Israeli scholar Israel Shahak.
    Jewish History, Jewish Religion: The Weight of Three Thousand Years
    https://ifamericansknew.org/cur_sit/shahak.html

    Jesus decisively rejected the Talmudic Law of the Money Power in his story of the Good Samaritan. In that story a wounded man was bypassed by two Jewish religious leaders, a priest and a Levite (temple keeper). Jesus’ audience would have understood these Jewish leaders avoided the wounded man because he was a non-Jew, hence “unclean”. According to the Talmud (which supercedes the Torah) non-Jews have animal souls, and are merely livestock to serve Jews. Thus this priest and Levite were following “The Law”. The Samaritan, a non-Jew at that time, was outside the Talmudic Law and provided the model of universal compassion which Jesus was teaching.

    Jesus was teaching the Golden Rule, as did Buddha, Krishna, and Zoroaster. This is the exact opposite of the Talmudic Law, which is why Jesus refers to the Jewish leaders as the Synagogue of Satan in the Gospel of John (e.g. 8:44).

    It’s also relevant that the Jewish leaders invest as much, and probably more, in duping the rank & file Jewish community as in duping their non-Jewish victims. They needed the Jewish community as a protective buffer. This is discussed at about 38:00 in the following (excellent) interview. The Cult of Yahweh – Know More News, featuring Laurent Guyenot

    It seems to me it’s especially important for the Christian community to understand the true facts about the relationship between Jesus’ teachings and those of the Talmud. The Jewish leaders keep the Talmud teachings hidden from Christians, which the Talmud itself instructs them to do. That alone should make all thoughtful Christians pause and reflect.

    I appreciate your interest in this topic, and hope you will give the above materials serious consideration. If you find them worthy of thought, perhaps you could share them with other Christians in your community.

DSK was”replaced” by Hollande, a dull and lame politician if ever there was one , who got elected mostly because the french were fed up with Sarkozy , and proved over the next 5 years that he was a total nobody , to the point that he didn’t even try to run for re-election in 2017 ( for the benefit of Macron, who had been his finance minister ) … Hollande swore during campaign that ” finance” was his ennemy ( the french love that kind of language ) , then went to London after election to re-assure the good folks there that he was only joking ..
    There’s no doubt that DSK was badly framed in NYC , and there was no doubt either in the french public’s mind at the time . The question is why and as much as I appreciate Mr Romanov’s article, I wonder if the IMF reasons are enough ( although I’ll admit that his release depending on his resignation does make a strong case ) , as the kind of “socialist” talk DSK was having at the time could simply have been pre-election bla bla designed to please his leftist base .
    I also fail to see what danger would have posed DSK as french president to total taboos such as NATO, Europe , Finance , Israël, “free trade” , etc..etc..
    I guess we’ll never know and if DSK does , he’ll never talk about it .

    Great article – liked how Larry added a little part the Ukrainian Farmland deals into his research. My first encounter with a representative of Univ. of Iowa State Agricultural Dept. in Kiev in 08 was a real eye opener about the pressure to partner up with the BreadBasket. I also found out that John Deere and ISU were partners and Monsanto , DuPont and others were making deals in Kiev also. In fact I ran into alot of reps of foreign companies in Kiev, – Bechtel and others associated with the globalist. So the stage of globalising Ukraine, was set way before the MaiDan.

    The recent murders of Olek Vadaturski and his wife, the Ukrainian owners of that huge Farm – Nibulon- in Mykolaiv, which also sports a huge Sea Port in the same area, might look a bit suspicious – to me anyways. The other owners in the operation are from Budapest and London , and since one owner needed to be Ukrainian , prior to Zelensky’s new farmland for sale Laws, and Olek’s death, the others may now take full control of that Farm with over 4000 employees and 100 tractors , trucks , etc. Of course, we will never know if those were Russian missiles that killed the Vadaturski couple { as the media claims} or Ukrainian ones, but we will see who is running the farm next year and if it’s GMO or not. I might even be able to drive there.

Actually, as the article suggests, she WAS probably a prostitute, he paid her, and only then she declared rape, etc. All following the orders of who knows who. Anyway, no big loss. DSK was evil.

  34. It could not have been Nicholas Sarkozy and his election team. They might well have had considerable “cause”, but Sarkozy didn’t have the power to engineer something this vast, especially in the US where it required intense cooperation from the police, the prosecutors, the courts, the media – and the silence of the US government. Sarkozy’s team was clearly kept informed, on what would appear to be nearly a minute-by-minute basis, but they weren’t the engineers. There is no way the US government would give a (disliked) European politician the freedom and power to commit such an immense theatrical crime on US soil, merely to assist his own re-election. Nor would they permit him to use their police, courts and prosecutors to fraudulently force a rival’s resignation from an unrelated UN position

    There was much more. It was discovered that the woman had “had practice at this kind of storytelling before”. “Further investigation revealed that the [maid] had lied on her 2004 asylum claim about being gang-raped in her home country of Guinea. More damaging still, she had rehearsed the narrative of lies for asylum so often, listening to them over and over on an audiotape supplied by a male accomplice, that even years later she would break down crying as she told the story—until, finally, under very tough questioning by assistant district attorneys, she admitted the asylum narrative was a fabrication.”[41] Her stories were apparently so well-told that listeners would often be driven to tears as well.

    This is also the technique used by some so-called NGOs to prepare and train fakefugees to pass border controls and obtain refugee status.

    According to the Talmud (which supercedes the Torah) non-Jews have animal souls, and are merely livestock to serve Jews.

    Another ignorant retelling of Jewish history. The Talmud did not exist in the time of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ preached against the Torah. All that Jewish supremacism shit is printed in black and white in the Torah, starting with the second book of Genesis. Genesis says that the Semites are entitled to occupy the land of Canaan and enslave its inhabitants. Every time they fuck up their entitlement, YHWH gives them another chance. By the time we get to Isaiah and the seeds of Christianity, YHWH doesn’t merely demand that his chosen people occupy Israel. He demands that they rule the entire world on his behalf. The Ten Commandments only ever applied between fellow Jews. Moses only taught his chosen people that they should love their neighbors. Jesus taught that you should love everyone as if they were your neighbors. That is the meaning of the parable of the Good Samaritan. All Jewish supremacy derives from the conceit of being chosen by YHWH to rule the world. This is what Jesus spoke against in the Gospels. He spoke against the Torah.

    The Talmud is certainly worthy of understanding, but placing it in a Biblical context where it did not exist, in order to to whitewash the diabolical nature of the Bible itself, serves nobody and propagates misunderstanding.

    False analogy. Whether a story does or doesn’t make sense is determined by objective logic, not by personal appreciation. Ultimate narcissism is to pretend that “it doesn’t make sense” and “I don’t understand it” are equivalent because the logic used to determine sense is beyond your grasp. And yes it is a general rule – ‘general’ meaning that it suffers (rare) exceptions – that if something doesn’t make any logical sense whatsoever then it is unlikely to be true. It is altogether different from the proposition you present as analogous and for which btw you don’t allow exceptions.

    For example, Rikers is a jail, not a prison, although some sentenced people carry out their terms there. And Rikers, while dangerous like a lot of jails/prisons, is not some death-sentence. Most arrestees and convicts shuffle through their without dying or serious injury. Plenty of guys have blogs telling stories about going through it. It’s not fun, but more dirty and overcrowded, and the prisoners can get drugs easy. Most of the issues with jail/prison stem from boredom/isolation and uncleanliness, not violence.

    Such exaggeration/sloppiness is too bad, because the article arouses some of my old suspicion.

    From the start the DSK affair sounded like a setup, much like the Eliot Spitzer take down was a setup. But unlike Spitzer, who took the entrapment for illegal sex hook, line, and sinker, its unclear if DSK took the bait here or, alternatively, was framed.

    The requirement that DSK resign as part of his deal is certainly a huge red flag, but given the sloppiness and exaggeration in the article’s language, I’m not so sure its true at this point. Recommend the author tone down his excitement and certainty in his language.

    DECRETO PER IL SOVRANO MILITARE ORDINE OSPEDALIERO DI SAN GIOVANNI DI GERUSALEMME, DI RODI E DI MALTA (S.M.O.M.)

    The Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of St. John of Jerusalem, of Rhodes and of Malta has always enjoyed special protection by the Apostolic See.

    The Roman Pontiffs on numerous occasions – starting with Pope Paschal II, who approved the Order with the Bull Pie postulatio voluntatis, granting it protection and granting it rights and privileges – have intervened to affirm its identity, to maintain its operations, to help overcome crises, and to guarantee the existence and development of the Hospitaller Order, including its sovereign prerogatives in the international sphere.

    According to the Sentence of 24 January 1953, issued by the Court of Cardinals instituted on 10 December 1951 with the chirograph of my predecessor Pope Pius XII, of venerable memory, the “prerogatives inherent to the Order […] as a subject of international law […], which are proper to sovereignty, […] do not constitute in the Order that complex of powers and prerogatives, which is proper to sovereign entities in the full sense of the word”. In fact, the Order is ‘a religious Order, approved by the Holy See […]. It pursues not only the sanctification of its members, but also religious, charitable and welfare purposes’. Moreover, ‘The two qualities of sovereign Order and religious Order […] are intimately connected. The quality of the Institution as a sovereign Order is functional, that is, directed to ensuring the achievement of the Order’s ends and its development in the world’ (Acta Apostolicae Sedis 45 [1953], 765-767).

    Therefore, being a religious Order, it depends, in its various articulations, on the Holy See.

    With paternal solicitude and concern, I have followed the progress of the Order in these years, appreciating the works carried out in various parts of the world, also thanks to the generous contribution of Members and Volunteers, and also noting the need to initiate a profound spiritual, moral and institutional renewal of the entire Order, especially and not only of the Members of the First Class, but also of those of the Second Class.

    To this end, I entrusted my Special Delegate, Cardinal Silvano Maria Tomasi, c.s., with this important work of reform, as well as the revision of the Constitutional Charter and the Melitense Code, and the preparation of the Extraordinary General Chapter. Many steps have been taken, but just as many impediments and difficulties encountered along the way.

    After having listened to and dialogued with various representatives of the Order, the time has come to complete the renewal process begun, in fidelity to the original charism.

However, if you think of it as “French,” you’d better understand that this is the Americas, and many of the staff are as in this story, “hotel maid, Nafissatou Diallo, a ~35-year-old immigrant from Guinea.” Not that this is bad in and of itself, but it puts the big, French flag above the front door in a particular light.

    Still, I didn’t know they offered “ancillary hotel services.”

    “But isn’t the fact that he was already head of the IMF proof that he was a already a loyal soldier who knew intimately the power structure? This is where the author’s analysis breaks down, though I find it quite convincing. I simply don’t understand what would motivate DSK to disobey orders ‘from the top’. So, for me, we are missing something that would make Romanoff’s story ‘make sense’.”

    Your observations are accurate. But don’t blame me for the inconsistencies because they are not mine.

    DSK certainly knew the “power structure” and also the ultimate goals and the “rules of engagement” of the Khazar mafia. And, to quite an extent, he played by those rules – clearly evidenced by the literal destruction and colonisation of Greece, a tragedy that seems to have escaped the world’s knowledge primarily because the media refuse to touch it.

    Yet this is the same man who openly suggested inheritance taxes on the major players of that same ‘power structure’. I can think of no better way to commit suicide. In the past, any suggestion a redistribution of land or nationalisation of infrastructure or land, was brutally suppressed by these same people, using the US military as the Bankers Private Army. Those nations attempting such a clawback of their own sovereignty were immediately subjected to a CIA overthrow and replacement of the government with a brutal dictator. And yet DSK very openly stated that such nationalisation was “indispensable” for a nation’s sovereignty. He had to know what he was doing; that statement is so inflammatory I think he’s lucky they didn’t kill him for making it.

    DSK talked about the world needing “a new humanism”. Maybe he was having second thoughts about the Khazar agenda, but again he had to know the reaction to those sentiments in the City of London. He told his wife “they are out to get me”, and with good reason, and he was warned “they” planned to set him up with some kind of sexual entrapment, yet he seems to have walked right into it. I cannot explain these inconsistencies.

    “You forget that Sarkozy IS CIA.”

    Yes, but Sarkozy was Mossad as much as he was CIA. This is not so simple as it appears. Both agencies are “fingers on the same hand”.

    Part of this issue is that we seem to be dealing with two CIAs that are in large part unrelated to each other but both flying the same flag.

    One part of the CIA is the normal, dishonest, criminal, spying organisation. Another part is the one that assassinated about 150 national leaders and officials, that created MK-ULTRA, Operation Gladio, that controls the world’s cocaine and heroine markets, and a whole lot of other very dirty stuff. From my information, the second part operates in a cloud with neither the knowledge of, nor the sanction of, any part of the US government. This part appears to report to the City of London, not to the CIA per se. I think this is what got Gary Webb killed. It isn’t easy to obtain definitive information; one needs to speculate from bits and pieces, and try to connect the dots.

My categorisation of Rikers Island as a prison instead of a jail is egregious, extraordinary, unforgivable, over the top exaggeration and sloppiness and, being such a critical and integral part of my thesis, thereby renders the entire article useless and not worth reading, and would certainly justify “arousing” all your “old suspicions”.

    Your comments and wonderings are all intelligent and appropriate. I will be expanding on them, as you suggest.

    About Matthew Ehret:

    “. . . whitewashing the Khazar mafia. Sometimes I read his essays . . . However, there is a twist to them that I can’t put my finger on. He seems to take a nationalist perspective against the globalist agenda. And yet, he was whitewashing the Khazar mafia.”

    My sentiments exactly. He sometimes presents sensible anti-globalist opinions, but heavily sanitises anything relating to the Khazar Jews. He seems intelligent and with a good knowledge of history, but he spins that in the most clever ways and he seems always to avoid providing evidence of his fantastic claims. My conclusion was that he is simply a clever con-artist concerned primarily with sanitising the world’s criminals.

    Matthew once claimed that the Khazar Empire was the “most beautiful and beneficial” thing to have ever existed on earth. When I challenged those assertions with a request for evidence, he instead wrote to ask me for evidence of their evil doings, claiming he had researched this to the ends of the earth but could find nothing. That was when I wrote him off as a con-man.

Kikes resent the label because they know that is who they are. Other charged labels: shyster, quack, gook, crone, hag, skank. All powerful linguistic labels contain a truth so primal that even noticing engenders deep unforgiving hostility.

Probably the same kid she claimed as a dependent for tax purposesShe should have done what many immigrants legal and illegal do. Claim 10 dependents on your payroll form.

    When Napoleon was defeated at Waterloo, Britain and its age long nemesis France were the great powers of the world. The war was financed with Rothschilds money (how they got is a different ball of wax altogether) on both sides of the channel. At the surrender of French forces, the London stockmarket reigned supreme and had the largest capitalization of the world’s wealth. And most of it belonged to the five sons sent out by the old Amschel Rothschilds himself. Nathan the youngest was the most prescient of them all and the savviest. From that large base of capital, the Rothschilds have come to control most of the money today through secret bank holdings. The Sasoons (as Baghdadi Jews they yielded to the white Ashkenazi Rothschilds) who used the British to milk India and China owed their existence to the Nathan and Company in the City of London. And from that, all the reserve banks around the world have come about, including the US Federal Reserve.

    It was a field day of anti- French propaganda. The anti -French agenda is to either erase or smear the French. Today Fox engages in it by not pronouncing the White House Press secretary’s name. It’s a French name, Karrine Jean -Pierre. So Fox uses the title “WH press secretary” and the pronouns “she” and “her” repeatedly. Never saying her name. They said Jen Psaki’s name all the time. This obvious disrespect is in contrast to how the media will say AOC’s full name repeatedly, rarely if ever using pronoun “her” or “she. If they never said AOC’s or any Spanish named celebrity, you know la Raza would be all over it correctly calling out Fox for its bigotry! The exception to not using Karrine name, is Tucker Carlson who goes one better then erasing it, he says her name but mocks it. Is this a top down memo coming from Fox?
    PBS is not any better. I notice pbs when they do any segment with anyone speaking French[ rarely but occasionally regarding a story from French speaking Africa] they will mute the French speaker. This again contrasts with how they cover Spanish speakers. There you hear the Spanish as well as the English voice over. PBS never once covered the yellow vest story. France ‘s right wing is labeled fascist and racist by the US media [ Maddow and pbs] but Hungary’s and Italy’s and Poland’s right wing is merely called right wing or at worse anti- immigrant. When the DSK story broke, the police commissioner was on the news denigrating the French justice system. Closed captioning and the internet will now change spelling of words that had the French ending ette to et. This concerted bigotry and propaganda is obvious to anyone who is attuned to it.

    Bribing voters with food, amusement park tickets and other tricks failed to boost it above the sought 50% level. Promotional campaigns encouraging people to vote fell flat.

    Most eligible voters abstained from a process rigged to assure Sisi holding onto junta power.

All the sons would start to murder each other till only one was left alive. The Turks didn’t end that custom till the late 1600s. Only because the Europeans and Arabs found the custom so barbaric horrible appalling and against some Islamic religious laws and customs

    If you want references I direct you to the Green Library Palo Alto Ca and Young Research and southern regional archives libraries Westwood Ca.

    Some people claim there was a great Jewish Khazar Central Asian Turkic tribe that converted to Judaism 700 AD. Others claim no such group existed. Last I heard the government of Israel claimed the Khazar tribe and territory never existed. Who knows what the Israelis say about it now?

    “Ireland’s rejection of the Lisbon Treaty in the June 12 referendum came like a bolt out of a clear blue sky because of its reputation as one of the countries which has done best out of European Union (EU) membership.”

    “The Irish vote, along with the rejection of the EU Constitution by France and the Netherlands three years ago, should be seen as a red flag to alert the Union’s leadership that its current mode of integration is going over the heads of even those who wish it well.”

    Nicolas Sarkozy went to Ireland to ask them to vote again (i.e., to say YES to Lisbon). The Irish, aided by Iraq Veterans against the war, Germany, found more than 100 reasons to refuse again.

    22. European Commission proposals on inheritance law would prevent farmers passing on family farms as a single working unit. If the Lisbon treaty is ratified, that will come into effect.

    35. The increased militarisation of Europe is of great concern to many people who would prefer to see Ireland retain neutrality. In the referendums on Nice, Ireland was assured that a European Army would never happen, but now the basis for a common defence policy and EU battlegroups are in place. Lisbon looks toward a ‘progressive framing of a common Union defence policy’.”

    44. The Lisbon treaty is the work of Bertie Ahern and Charlie McCreevy, along with Silvio Berlusconi, Jose Manuel Barroso and Nicolas Sarkozy.

    46. Since concerns over Irish neutrality and European militarisation were a key reason for voting No in the first referendum, according to the Irish Times and TNS surveys in May and June 2008, why should the Irish people accept the Lisbon treaty take two?

    63. Irish policy on Iraq, Afghanistan and Kosovo will be transferred to a new European foreign minister. Ireland will not have a say on key foreign policy issues.

    Now England was the earlier World hegemon and they easily killed more than 40 million in India and China without even counting. Then accompanying these butchers were a bunch of geeks preaching about Christ and some other stupid Bull Faeces —–to support the case that the Englishman and American were sole representatives from GOD above.

    To this day —the world enemy is in the American and British Mirror —and Lizz Truss will do wonders this winter and Amtrak Joe had best send the JEW Nazi Zylenskyy another 40 Billion before the flakes fall.

    Get huffy all you want, but if you’re going to make strong accusations to try to convince non-believers, you’ve got to have you i’s dotted and your t’s crossed, which includes calling things by their correct technical name. Furthermore, as your article implicates corrupt actions in U.S. criminal procedure as well as singling out Rikers as a vector, and relies on such arguments in making its point, you’ve doubly got to make sure you’re getting things right in terms of vocabulary and technicality.

    Your mistake is the equivalent of when gun grab advocates write an article and claim that the AR in AR-15s stands for “assault rifle” (it doesn’t); the sloppy verbal incorrectness makes the reader question how accurate the other in-article claims about the subject are.

    That said, calling me a Hasbara troll is silly, given my commenting history on Unz. I think DSK was set up, as my comment stated. But I’m disinclined to believe your version if you’re not going to hunker down and accurately argue the terms of your theory.

    The Khazars were renowned as “the most hated and the most feared” peoples in the world.

    Hated, I can get it, but feared? Unless what we see today is the ultimate outcome of in-breeding, I am having a hard time imagining the roaming tribes of the Eurasian landmass crapping themselves before a fighting force composed of Woody Ellen, Roman Polanski, Ben Stiller, Anthony Blinken, Merrick Garland, Vladimir Zelensky etc, I could go on until tomorrow. There were no firearms back then, it was man to man fight and it was physical. I understand that they could have an elite force that didn’t look like the today’s average Ashkenazim but compare their build to that of any of the people in the area, they don’t stand a chance in a massive hand-to-hand battle.
    More likely, back then as now, they had goy mercenaries do the fighting – and dying – for them. Their khaganate was eventually overran by neighbouring Slavs who couldn’t stand their ways any longer. Thence their hatred of everything Russian.

    Getting worked up over the prison vs jail terminology in this case is misguided. Rikers may technically be classified as a jail because offenders are awaiting trial or serving sentences of <1 year, but it's a huge facility that's larger than most state prisons because that's where the most violent felons from the NYC metro area get sent (NYC alone has a larger population than most state regions hosting prison complexes). Rikers holds murders and gangsters, not drunks picked up on DUI charges. Metro jails in general—much less Rikers—have much harsher conditions than most prisons. Prisons are designed for long-term living and allow inmates way more privileges resembling life on the outside than people in jail get.

    “why would he suddenly have a change of heart in the usual modus-operandi of the clique he belongs to? It doesn’t make sense.”

    I couldn’t agree more. A “change of heart” doesn’t seem to fit the circumstances, and DSK would surely be aware of the consequences of any such change. It’s not as if he hasn’t seen other people killed for less.

    He specifically proposed replacing most income taxes with inheritance taxes on the “very wealthy” – which would be primarily the Rothschilds, Warburgs, Sassoons, Sebag-Montefioris. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you. And his other proposals were, if anything, even more inflammatory. Socialism, nationalisation, the US \$ . . .

    I agree it doesn’t make sense, and I cannot account for it. Yet this is not imaginary: those proposals were all in his IMF document. Then he told his wife, “They are out to get me.” Well, what a surprise.

    Yet at the same time he was destroying the sovereignty of nations by enforcing many of those principles ordained by his masters.

    Rikers is well known to be one of the worst city/county jails in the country. Something else about Rikers. Like every big city, NYC had detention rooms and cells with beds toilets and meals in most police stations. Why couldn’t he have been left in one them for a day

    Here’s a thought. DSK might have been part of the conspiracy. Few people leave their cell phones in a hotel room especially checking out for an international flight. For most people it’s automatic and unthinking wallet glasses keys note book and pen cell phone in purse or pockets. It was morning He probably wasn’t drunk.

    So maybe DSK was forced to cooperate. Because he was a lecher and pervert who had sex harassed and even assaulted women in the past. Maybe some of what he did wasn’t just ordinary harassment and groping. Maybe he liked children or animals.

    So the conspirators presented evidence of something completely illegal and unspeakable.
    And told him “ request a room on a certain floor.In the morning a maid will come in and leave. “ “ Then leave your phone behind, check out and call from the airport about the phone. “ “You’ll be arrested, unpleasant publicity exoneration and retirement. “

    I got to wondering about the phrase “researched this to the ends of the earth”. That style is so out of character for Matthew Ehret, and the intelligentsia style essays he writes. Worse yet, that phrase is closely associated with fables.

    Then it reminded me of the phrase “Mentat to Mentat” from the book Dune. The meaning is to speak so indirectly that nobody else would recognize the underlying message, but to a Mentat, a message, which can’t be said outright in so many words, is absolutely clear.

    So I wonder if Matthew was telling you, in this indirect way, its a fable, and there isn’t any point to wasting your time asking for documentation, because its a story, not facts. This is something that somebody, who is very clever with words (and a bit arrogant too), might to. This fits in with my impression that he is very slick.

    And he was successful in his probable goal – you stopped trying to communicate with him.

    ~
    It seems unlikely they are wasting a person of Matthew’s writing talents on just whitewashing Jews. Likely he is including several psyop angles in that writing. This would explain the twisty feeling I get from reading them.

    I don’t think its worth the time and energy to do an analysis on Matthew’s writing. There are more important things to spend that time on. The US public is being pummeled into a stupor, and trained to react without thinking – now what do we do?

    We need to be clarifying the difference between good bankers and evil bankers. Some people lump all banking into one big category of Bad.

    Its essential that people recognize the bankers who are their friends, the ones who are their enemies, and treat them accordingly.

    Its not just evil bankers and the Khazar mafia that controls them, there is an evil type of banking.

    When talking about the evil banking weasels, it would be good to emphasize there is a huge difference between the community investment banking that Ellen Brown talks about, which strengthens the local economy:
    https://www.unz.com/author/ellen-brown/

    And the extractive rentier banking, which impoverishes the local economy, which is part of the shift from an industrial economy to the FIRE economy, which Michael Hudson talks about:
    https://www.unz.com/author/michael-hudson/
    I like to describe this banking as vampire banking as it sucks the life out of your local community.

    ~
    After having been bleed for years by rentier banking, we will badly need the help of community investment banking to rebuild our economy.

    The evil banking weasels will try to use community investment banking as a scapegoat to protect themselves. So we need to make it very clear to people who their banking friends and enemies are.

    The people promoting community investment banking are heroines and heroes. It cheers me up every time I see another essay by Ellen Brown published on TUR.

    The bloodsucking evil banking weasels deserve the death penalty.

    The author Sheri S. Tepper has had a large influence on my life. On the surface she has great liberal credentials for things like writing feminist stories and being the executive director of a branch of Planned Parenthood.

    However, if you read the stories, there is a lot of hardcore realism about maintaining workable cultural and ecological balances. Her stories got better and better right up to her last book, published 2 years before she died.

    I recently reread her book “The End of the Game”. A theme in this story was, for the people who have no souls, who can’t learn, its a kindness to kill them.

    A common example of people like this in the real world are the sex offenders who repeatedly go thru therapy programs and repeatedly end up in jail for another sex crime. These people are not happy, and can’t learn. So why not put them out of their misery, and stop wasting tax money on them that could be spent on rebuilding our economy, while there are still resources available for doing that?

    The financialization vampires, which are destroying the US economy they feed off of, are another example of people who don’t seem to be able to learn. Michael Hudson wrote about these people in the book “Killing the Host”. What use are these people to our country or to our Earth? Why let them live?

For, as we see in this sordid tale, dissenting Jews are themselves highly vulnerable to depredations of the beast.

    Say what you wish, but you’re only arguing with me because I called out your stupid Biblical exegesis. First you wrote that Babylon in the book of Revelations represents “the Money Power which Jesus tackled” and later you wrote “Jesus decisively rejected the Talmudic Law of the Money Power”. Thus you have identified Jesus as rejecting Talmudic Law, which you associate with Babylon, and describe as the “Money Power”.

    When I told you the Talmud didn’t exist in the time of Jesus, considering it wasn’t recorded for another 400 years, you referred to an “oral tradition”, also known as a game of telephone. How do you know there was an “oral Torah” in the time of Jesus? Because some rabbi said so? Where in the New Testament is there evidence that Jesus is attacking some top secret story hour at the Temple?

    According to the Jews, the oral Torah, as the progenitor of the Talmud, was given to Moses at the same time as the Ten Commandments. One questions what language any of these laws were given in, since the Hebrew language didn’t appear until centuries later. The Jew supposedly went to Babylon around 600 BC. But at this point they had already had their oral Torah for 700 years. The Jews didn’t cook up the “Money Power” during the Babylonian Captivity; actually, they cooked up the basis of Christianity, with Isaiah and other prophets. Your “Money Power” business goes all the way back to the book of Genesis, which promises that Semites may occupy the Earth and exploit its native inhabitants.

    The major Talmud is called the Babylonian Talmud but this has nothing to do with the Babylonian Captivity or the book of Revelations. This Talmud came out of Babylon in 500 *AD*. But you think Jesus was trying to take it on? Did he have a time machine? The Money Power that Jesus was attacking comes straight out of the Old Testament. And Christianity comes strait out of Babylon before going through Paul and ending up in the gospels and the book of Acts.

  129. @JWalters

    Jesus decisively rejected the Talmudic Law of the Money Power in his story of the Good Samaritan. In that story a wounded man was bypassed by two Jewish religious leaders, a priest and a Levite (temple keeper). Jesus’ audience would have understood these Jewish leaders avoided the wounded man because he was a non-Jew, hence “unclean”. According to the Talmud (which supercedes the Torah) non-Jews have animal souls, and are merely livestock to serve Jews. Thus this priest and Levite were following “The Law”. The Samaritan, a non-Jew at that time, was outside the Talmudic Law and provided the model of universal compassion which Jesus was teaching.

    The Babylonian Talmud was written in 500 CE, well after the Torah. The Talmud is a codification of the Oral Jewish history and law, The oral law was passed down from generation to generation. Since the Jews were exiled to Babylon in captivity, they wrote it down for fear of it being lost forever. The Talmud page is composed of the Oral law called the Mishnah or Gemara, depending on the date, surrounded by commentary. The commentary is written by several Rabbis, the closser the text to the Mishnah the further back and more sacred the commentary. The commentary almost always disagrees with each other. They are opinions not law. They are points of view, much like legal scholars, which is why Jews who study the Talmud are smart as secular legal scholars. It is mind boggling difficult to follow. It takes a learned scholar to begin to understand it.

    Well JWalters, seems like you are both stupid and ignorant. And we all know you can’t fix either of those.

    Lagarde was chosen to succeed Strauss Khan at the IMF, a few days prior to a New York Court ruling which completely exonerated Dominique Strauss Khan on the basis of lack of evidence.”

    “Since the founding of the Bretton Woods institutions in 1945, the World Bank has been headed by an American whereas the IMF has been under the helm of a (Western) European.

    A Strauss-Kahn presidency and a “Socialist” government would have been a serious setback for Washington, contributing to a major shift in Franco-American relations.

    It would have contributed to weakening Washington’s role on the European political chessboard, leading to a shift in the balance of power between America and “Old Europe” (namely the Franco-German alliance).

    It would have had repercussions on the internal structure of the Atlantic Alliance and the hegemonic role of the US within NATO.

One day soon they will call our marker, and when that happens, they will not accept cash as payment. They will demand the ground you walk on and everything beneath and above it. My prediction is this will happen when America’s military is sufficiently weakened, and that day is near. The army now demands to make it more lethal soldiers must know their pronouns.
