When he moves into his permanent room in Rikers, the contrast will make it that much  more painful.

What a disgusting shit hole of a place that is. It gives a whole new meaning to the words "Lipstick on a Pig".

27 foot wide? My Garage is 27 foot wide with 10 foot high ceiling. Does the house at least have a two car garage like mine? Forget that dump.

somehow i don't think that's the way most will see this.  these pictures and the dsk accusations are indeed useful material for education of the masses in the ways of the elites.  the control frauds are somehow too complex and dry to heat the blood but the illicit/criminal sex combined with over the top opulence might do it.

Come on now Ray! A man that rich can't be bad.  I'll give a rich guy the benefit of the doubt anytime! I wonder what  really happened that day! I'm sure it would surprise us, Do you think she will get a lot of money out of all this and return to Africa and live out the rest of her, short life as some kind of a celebrity for having brought the rich European down??

He's been set up.  He predicted he would be, just like this, in an interview just a week before it happened.  And this gem, a man who has just committed assault and rape and is trying to escape, calls the hotel from the airport to tell them he left his cell phone and would they please forward it to him?

If you read about him and his reputation some time ago, you might have had an epiphany and realised how to destroy him. The public are such firm believers in DNA, and they can`t get over their class resentment.

 

The Liberation article was made up though. It came out after the allegations. It`s weak because it can be taken either way.

lol...I can't believe the numbers of people rushing to his defense or when a crooked oligarch scumbag gets busted, assuming that it was some vast conspiracy to set him up.

News flash:  the guy engaged in illegal behavior just like Spritzer did.

Jesus H. Christ.  His wife paid for this?

 

She does know what happened, right?  I mean, even if he turns out to have been set up and the whole sordid affair was consenual ( I'm not saying it was )...I would still imagine that sticking your penis in the maid's mouth would be considered uncouth by the wife, if not outright fucking vulgar.

The fine line between uncouth and vulgar is illuminated (snigger) by whether said penis was inserted into a (as in any) rectal cavity, first.

Ok, so, I was thinking...everybody thinks this was a setup, including DSK, as he had said months ago that Sarkozy would set him up as a rapist.  Then why did he not travel with his wife?  I would have had my wife with me wherever I went.  I would have had her in that hotel room with me, that is for sure.  So I got to thinking, is he on the take?  Was he blackmailed?  I am just saying, because once again, if he knew they were gunning for him, why was he acting so lame and traveling solo?

"...is he on the take?"

"...is he on the take?"

As head of the IMF, a global bankster's bankster with no official oversight by anybody or anything which even gives a rats ass?  Head of an organization which systematically even by the Rothschild's own words, "enslaves with debt", rapes and pillages whole entire fucking countries, redistributing the riches to developed world governments and the rich and powerful.  Imagine the freedom of unquestioned wire transfers to and from, through a non-audited international supra-national bank.  No different than the Fed or any other such institution with no oversight.

The power and magic of sending money unquestioned to or from any where in the world.  Where the fuck do all those peanut farmer third and fourth world dictators who are weaning their countries on the IMF teat send their money to?  IMF funds?  Anybody wanna bet who gets cuts of the pirated loot?  Just another conspiracy theory, another meaningless fantasy, another novella in the history of mankind.

"...is he on the take?"

Fuck no.

He was on the take.

Who, for example is gunning for Greece's gold reserves?  The EBC and IMF.  They want the shit as collateral, knowing full well that the borrower (Greece) is going to go belly, subsequent to having been jammed with additional debt. 

Ever fucking heard of Fraudulent Conveyance?

Was he on the fucking take?

 

In the interest of full disclosure, I have never met DSK, never worked for the IMF, do not know his wife, I am not aware that I would, do or don't know any of his other victims, couldn't care less about getting a job there or in any other similar institution, have never to my knowledge benefited directly of indirectly through any IMF program, and don't even like the fucking French because as an Anglo, got pissed upon by the arrogant little pricks one too many times.  And no, it's not a resentment, just plain fucking Karma, dude.

Good rant, but I think you missed my point.  My question is, did someone say they would kill his family and kill him unless a spectacle was made of his nature.

I apologize.  I did miss that.  By a mile.  But had fun going down the path I'd chosen.

Oh, and about him getting knocked off?  You just gave me an idea!
Yeah, if he knows too much and gets the old El Pissoed at either being set up or not being bailed out with a mere slap on the hand, there could be many who might think he'd possibly be too big a song bird for their good. 

Yeah, a right bloody Ramond Chandler novel.

How would you like to be the housekeeper? I don't think all of those gleaming surfaces are maintained by the little woman... Maybe as a political wife she was just relieved that he was getting his jollies elsewhere...

Or, maybe MrsDSK hired someone named "Edgar" to handle it though...
