Another Woman Steps Up: Former Employee Sent Letter To IMF, Warning Organization About DSK Following Her Own Affair

Tyler Durden's picture





 

And so another woman appears on the DSK scene, so far unnamed. As AP reports, "An employee who had a brief affair with IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn warned the organization about his behavior toward women in a letter sent three years ago." And no, this is no the Hungarian Piroska Nagy who almost caused the downfall of DSK if only the bailout crew had had enough brains to do a little more to the "head" than censure him. But it appears that the two are close: "The person who confirmed the existence of
the letter is close to the former International Monetary Fund employee,
Hungarian-born economist Piroska Nagy. The person declined to be
identified, citing the sensitivity of the matter." As a reminder the so far only known major transgression of DSK, Nagy, had worked at the IMF for decades, and left the organization after the affair with Strauss-Kahn in 2008. An IMF-funded investigation into the affair cleared Strauss-Kahn of wrongdoing but criticized his judgment. If it now turns out that the IMF had been officially warned about DSK, yet completely ignored the charges, we may have another public humiliation ala the SEC and Bernie Madoff, which ultimately will strip the organization of even more "bailout" and dollar-alternative power. Which begs the question: just how far will the powers that be go to make sure the SDR concept is now and forever killed as a USD-replacement currency?

All the myriad number of anxious hedge fund traders trying to "make their year" (after falling behind much of the 1st half) could care less about DSK.

The only things they are paying attention to today are:

- Did the NYA put in a "nipple bottom"?

- Is it time to buy GOOG?

- Is "The Fix In" on the banks, effective today?

- Will we have "Risk On" back tomorrow?

- Is the IYR about ready to do another moonshot due to ZIRP?

- Which Dow stocks are going to break out to new highs next?

While DSK seems like a real piece of shit, not because he likes women, but because he heads the IMF (part of the 'outfit'), nothing would surprise me anymore.

I am saying that if he was set up by his opponents in France or anywhere else, for political reasons or reasons having to do with money (or power, more likely), it wouldn't surprise me in the least.

What a sad state of affairs the global big swinging dicks have created when so many plebes lose absolute confidence in the Matrix, huh?

I wonder what happens when people not only become aware of the Matrix, but choose to break free of it and rip those electrode implants out of the backs of their heads.

"I am saying that if he was set up by his opponents in France or anywhere else, for political reasons or reasons having to do with money (or power, more likely), it wouldn't surprise me in the least."

I am not buying he's being framed as such. But I'm sure that the powers behind the curtain took notice of his aberration, and shelved it for future use. Just in case he went off the desired path. Just like he/the IMF did in Ireland:

"The IMF, which believes that lenders should pay for their stupidity before it has to reach into its pocket, presented the Irish with a plan to haircut €30 billion of unguaranteed bonds by two-thirds on average. Lenihan was overjoyed, according to a source who was there, telling the IMF team: “You are Ireland’s salvation.”

The deal was torpedoed from an unexpected direction. At a conference call with the G7 finance ministers, the haircut was vetoed by US treasury secretary Timothy Geithner who, as his payment of $13 billion from government-owned AIG to Goldman Sachs showed, believes that bankers take priority over taxpayers. The only one to speak up for the Irish was UK chancellor George Osborne, but Geithner, as always, got his way."

http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/opinion/2011/0507/1224296372123.html

We might never know what he was going to propose the very next day to Frau Merkel, but if this would go against the intentions of the Fed/ECB/GS, his inclination to violent seduction was just the remote kill switch they needed. Maybe Spitzer fell prey to the same concept. Maybe you don't even get to rise to positions like this unless they have a card like this up their sleeve

I'm so mad at my neighbor. I bought my new home here in Ashburn last summer and plan to sell it next year (after holding two years to avoid taxes) to make a nice return on my investment. The problem is my neighbor is trying to sell his house (very similar to mine) right now and he keeps lowering his asking price. Each time he lowers his price, I see my potential profits next year getting squashed. Doesn't he realize he's hurting the comps for all of his neighbors by doing this? I don't think he is acting very "neighborly" by doing this. I want to say something to him and tell him he should stop putting his interests ahead of his neighbors. It's people like him who are ruining the market for the rest of us. If he would just refuse to lower his price, we could maintain our comps and everyone would benefit. What can I do to stop him?

How would the new populace be accomodated in that kind of a economic framework? To me it seems very inflexible and a non-fiat framework a recipie for social unrest.

DSK is a cheese-eating French fossil with a bone to pick, aka Penisaurus. Regarding the medical isolation contagion speculation... just a smart lawyer move:

-gets a measure of sympathy as a "victim"

-gets better accomodations in medical isolation

-protection from other inmates

-"precious" DSK cannot be touched by guards without special procedures such gloves, gowns, mask precautions.

And am amazed that DSK would put on the conspiracy tinfoil hat as a defense. Naturally, I thought conspiracy theories regarding the NWO operations were only from the crazy little paranoid people who just make it all up. DSK casually admits that apparently such things happen all the time and the control freak central bankers are not the elitist humanitarians consumed with helping their fellow man that they pretend to be.

RIKERS ISLAND!!!
Holy crap!
Even Bernie Madoff has better digs than that. That is one of the nastiest prisons in the United States. Wholly fitting, however.

If he was set up, he deserves it, and we're all better off with him out of circulation.
However, notice that phone calls in the USA, where influence from the highest levels could have gotten him released, didn't come through. This is a pattern of behavior, and the French have looked the other way for years. So the set up was easy: just wait until he fucks up again and let him hang.

However, DSK has clearly pissed the USA off in some fundamental way. Otherwise he would have been able to leave with a quick deal: you're leaving the IMF and you're not running for president of France.

But the SDR connection is just too obvious to ignore. Although US power comes in large part from our military, that's a very blunt instrument when trying to manipulate our european friends. It is the reserve currency status of the dollar that allows us to really extend our power. Any country that gets into too much debt quickly becomes our bitch through the IMF. That GS can talk the europeans into borrowing WAY too much money, is just part of the plan.

"SDRs? You're kidding, right?"

The fabric of international banking is a mysterious thing. Notice that the Fed is a PRIVATE corporation whose shareholders are the banks with excess reserves deposited there. We are told that Fed acts in the best interests of the people of the USA, when the legal responsibility of any corporation is to act in the best interests of its shareholders. It can't be both. You decide which it is.

But who owns the banks? In most cases they are public companies, but the shares are owned by a multitude of investment companies. Indeed, looking at the shareholders of the banks many have shareholders in common. This continues overseas: a common set of investors own large shares in all the biggest banks everywhere in the world. Now ask yourself, whose money are they investing? These are the people who control the world.

Now DSK obviously runs in these circles and does their bidding. But if he betrayed their trust (hopefully "serial rapist", at least among the servants), then when the call came "Get me out of this!", it would have been met with silence. He wasn't set up, he was allowed to destroy himself. You wonder if the Police made a call to authorities politely asking if they should arrest such a prominent international figure. "Hell yes".

Interesting, plausible speculations. It would really be interesting if NYPD and the system were just doing things according to procedures, treating all defendants of serious allegations equally. There is some longstanding anti-French feeling in the US for a variety of reasons. Isnt this the only banker in jail, for however long. Hard to convict without some forensic evidence.

Well, the little trolls are out in here today. They should/ought to learn what is going on before they pontificate their ignorance.  Where do these creeps come from at the wrong moment?  Is this staged???

Yo Tylers, - Fish rot from the head.

Madoff and the IMF were / are full of corrupt, anti-market operators. what's the difference?

The SDR as a currency, and IMF as the SDR Central bank has been thoroughly discredited hopefully by DSK.  

" we may have another public humiliation ala the SEC and Bernie Madoff, which ultimately will strip the organization of even more "bailout" and dollar-alternative power. Which begs the question: just how far will the powers that be go to make sure the SDR concept is now and forever killed as a USD-replacement currency?"

You little trolls are like a bunch of 11th grade cheer leaders rooting for the wrong team. Neither you nor I know the truth of what has happened here, but you are out for blood. Your ignorance is an American embarrassment, and is what is wrong with this country.

I used to come in here for intelligent comment and debate.  Now, a bunch of 15 year old trolls control the site with pathetic sentences and stupid, uneducated statements.

Just like the movie "Serpico"...you can't trust an honest cop or banker in this case; hence, they select someone with a record that can be used against them.

This guy is the only international banker of repute to stand up and say (last week) that we needed to re-instate the gold standard.  Duh.

As far as I am concerned, he could butt fuck every one of you little ignorant trolls, if he would even want to, if the gold standard, internationally, would be re-instated.

Your asses would be a cheap way to solve the international financial problem.

Oh really? Please show where DSK said that? And who would control the "gold"? DSK and IMF no doubt.

You would be the 1st butt fecked, because you would ask for it first. Feckin weirdo.

gold standard is not the answer. the rothschild banking cartel control most of the gold in the world as well as the means of production. so you tell me. if the same people who are running the fiat regimes of the world, also control most of the gold in the world, how in the hell is a gold standard going to do you or I or anyone else any good?  it won't. the answer is to print your own money like lincoln did and we see what happened to him......

Atch.. regardless of your leather elbowed sweater, and your ascot (never wear one unless you have been there) your comment means nothing (the thumb thing...terribly stoopid).

You are a moron. You add nothing, except insults, whoich are funny because they are so low brow.

Again...you are a feckin' weirdo. Improve or turn yourself in.

Silber - reaching for the stars....jusr because DSK (not SDK mind you) was a memeber of the communist party... he is a victim of a set up?

Hehe...communists have never been victims of set ups although the oppposite has been true.

A good defense is the best offense...has always been their motto.

Communists / sociasts always fail (albeit sometimes it takes they only thing they respect...violence...to have them see the light....because they disrespect that which is in every human's DNA...self interest.

So...pull yourself towards yourself if possible and figure it out. Esrtwhile...become part of the merry, politically correct crowd whose sunset has begun.

End the IMF and Worldbank-- they're worthless institutions.  While we're on the topic of ending worthless institutions: end the fed, reform the treasury, and renew the democratic process in this crony capitalistic country.

Look what happened to the outspoken JFK when he tried to go against the Fed? It might happen to DSK.

Just read he was on "suicide" watch. Bet you he'll be whacked. This is to silence any and all types of dissent. 

And the next IMF director will be some milquetoasty tool who'll kowtow to the Fed cartel. He'll probably say how wonderful everything is, blah blah blah... 

This is like watching a Sopranos episode.

It can't be true because Trav says that white on black rape NEVER happens.

 

BTW - word is she has AIDS - she's living in supported accomodation in the Bronx for AIDS sufferers.  So ol' DSK might have got more than he bargained for.  Might explain why he's being kept in the contagious disease section on Rikers.
