I think that would be "Special DSK"  :-)

Going from bad to worst. I am sure Sarkozy is smiling though, as this is one opponent out of the presidential race.

Too bad DSK does not have a "bimbo eruption team" like slick Willy had. Maybe he should give Bill and Hillary a call.

When will all those 'unfortunate' nations come forward and confess that they too have been 'raped by the IMF'.


Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Argentina and half of Africa.

The thing is a monster.


Surely the appropriate punishment is to chop their balls off.

Good point writing.

Everybody should watch this documentary:

Eye-popping. It all becomes clear if you have the skill of extra-polation.

I would think being "comfortable" with rape would be a prerequisite for the head of the IMF... he was obviously a perfect match!

The financial world gets more surreal by the day... with sociopathic monsters in control, the entertainment value can only continue to grow.

Lol... Liesman just pointed out DSK only paid $525 for the room (not $3K) and... they were looking for another IMF Head anyway, since DSK was running for President of France... so move along, it's now just an unimportant back page story!

Neuilly-sur-Seine, northwest of Paris near "La Defense", home of the French Rothschilds, the Strauss-Kahns and the Sarkozys (he was mayor there for some 20 years).

Interesting, how all these people of power are crammed together in one place.

Coincidence ?

I noticed that the complaint was filed in Neuilly as well.

In an unrelated story, Sarkozy used to be mayor of Neuilly.

they all went to school together--that's how it works in France (and it does work btw)--which is simple code for "DSK knows better."  hope he has an updated copy of Dostevsky's Crime and Punishement.  He's gonna have some quality reading time now...

Whilst there are many issues for DSK out of this,what about the IMF? I read one analysis which suggested its performance may now improve.

Indeed as I remember Mr. Strauss-Kahn’s performance when the Euro zone "shock and awe" package was revealed back on May 10th last year I think we are likely to see the IMF become more effective not less. He promised 250 billion Euros for the package which had to be corrected by Mr.Lipski a few days later who pointed out that the funds had to be available and that the IMF does not ring fence money for such things. Also you may note that the package that Mr. Strauss-Kahn helped design has been a failure on a grand scale.


Of course we can expect other politicians to tell us what a good job he has done..

Reptilian complex in brain in hyperactive mode ... I'm feeling super emotional ! Time for the two minutes hate !

But my cerebral cortex seems to be on early retirement. That would take actually realizing all of these corrupt politicians get away with almost anything when it involves professionnal, white collar crime. Sarkozy's illegal campaign funding, electronic voting machines from Diebold, embezzlement of funds from Libya ... nah, that's cerebral cortex stuff. You know, intellectual pinko fagget talk ... !

Sexcrime and thoughtcrime remain our biggest enemies of course.

DSK may soon be sent to a joycamp, but he failed to realize thoughtcrime is death.

This complaint has been presented differently in the French press. The girl in question has deposited a complaint about sequestration and sexual harassment, attempted physical violence but not RAPE. He never got her to consent. She was not penetrated or subjugated to acts.

This contradicts somewhat TD's post.

Extracts from "The Guardian" Article published today about, where Banon's mother makes the following statement:

"She said Strauss-Kahn was "an otherwise warm, sympathetic and extremely talented man", but the attack left her daughter depressed and traumatised. "My daughter, despite the passing years, is still shocked by these facts. Her life was completely upset by this affair and she was depressed for a long time." She added that it was clear Strauss-Kahn had "difficulty controlling his urges". She said: "I'm not a doctor or psychiatrist, but there is something violent in this predatory move.""


Sounds like history has repeated itself in NYC

Sounds to me like DSK forgot to make his monthly bribe payments to someone.

It is starting to appear that DSK refused to do what he was told. Amazingly, the punishment is usually the same- public humiliation, resignation and a long climb back in to the favor of their masters. If this all fails, they shoot you dead.

It is just too easy. Their predatory behavior is encouraged as a "perk" and then if they get out of line, they are hung with it. Still, Clinton wormed his way back in, Nixon was brought back, even Carter was lifted to a higher perch. 

Of course, if you stay the course, you could be lionized like a Reagan or protected by historians, like The Bushes, Truman, Wilson and FDR. 

Humans are saps. Herded through each "crisis" and past every signpost that would reveal the path to slaughter they are on. Government has become a better tool than religion for the enslavement of all.

I have also speculated this is the case.  The high-flying but self-indulgent are all to easy to control, and to dispose of when no longer wanted.

While I try to keep all tin foil out of my hair, isn't this really textbook CIA and KGB policy? They (whoever they is) actually want and encourage this behaviour for future reference if needed. Sure seems to be a pattern here.

Nah, Bill is a charming rascal, likes his women hot, willing and young.

I get the sense he "truly loves" all women... (men like that are nice to "play with" but "you don't take home to Momma" and you sure as shit don't marry them).  Clinton is many things but I doubt he is a rapist of women (I think Hillary would cut his dick off if he was....).

PARIS (Reuters) - Dominique Strauss-Kahn had left his hotel one hour before the time of the alleged sexual assault against a maid who earned him indicted by the U.S., said Monday RMC.

Radio, without citing its sources, said that lawyers from the Director General of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) have reconstituted his schedule on Sunday.

"He reportedly left the hotel at noon, an hour before the alleged assault the maid, " reads the website of RMC.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn would have joined her daughter for lunch at a restaurant in New York and his defense is preparing to give material evidence and testimony from the luncheon.

RMC adds that the defense focuses on the personality of the alleged victim to try to prove she would have had a material interest in a complaint.

DSK rapes someone and gas falls 12 cents overnight. I would guess that if Ben Bernake raped someone gas would fall a dollar.

nope, he is not, the FED + PDs + politicians are, not the IMF. The IMF only goes after dumb third world countries...which the USA may become in due course...not yet so...

As for US contributions to FED its to help the multinational oligarchies of the great USA churn up their mega margins abroad as they get less and less at home. So...its not just so simple...Its the Oligarchy game. Period. Of which FED is main player at home.

Tristan Banon, goddaughter to his second wife, may have been raped by the IMF head some time ago, a topic now picked up by theGuardian. Well according to BFMTV, as of this morning she has officially deposed a complaint in the police office of Neuilly-sur-Seine (92)


Banon's mother has been on French TV more times today than DSK! Why did those two wait until today to make their case?
