Update: DSK Now In Police Custody; IMF Head Dragged Off A Plane, Arrested Following Hotel Maid Allegations Of Forced Head

Update 2: DSK is now in police custody:

IMF Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn was taken into custody on Saturday at JFK airport in New York and was being questioned in regard to a sexual assault, a New York police spokesman told Reuters.

Spokesman Paul Browne said the woman who filed the complaint against Strauss-Kahn, 62, was a 32-year-old chambermaid who fled the room after the incident.

Strauss-Kahn, a possible Socialist candidate in the French presidential election next April, left the hotel after the incident and boarded an Air France aircraft scheduled to depart for Paris, the police spokesman said.

"The NYPD realized he had fled, he had left his cell phone behind," Browne said. "We learned he was on an Air France plane. They held the plane and he was taken off and is now being held in police custody for questioning."

Browne said Strauss-Kahn had not been charged.

Police said the alleged incident took place at the upscale Sofitel hotel on West 44th Street near Times Square.

The chambermaid "was brought by EMS (emergency medical services) to the Roosevelt Hotel, where she was treated for minor injuries," Brown said.

Strauss-Kahn took over the International Monetary Fund in November 2007. Before that, he was a member of the French National Assembly and a professor of economics at the Institut d'Etudes Politiques de Paris.

The IMF declined to comment and board officials said they had not been informed officially of the incident.

In October 2008, Strauss-Kahn apologized for "an error of judgment" in an affair with a subordinate, but denied he had abused his position.

Strauss-Kahn apologized to employees, the woman he had the affair with, Piroska Nagy, and his wife, French television personality Anne Sinclair, for the trouble it had caused.

Update 1: Strauss Khan to be taken to Police Service Area 5 at 221 East 123rd Street

If there was any threat that the IMF would launch an SDR alternative to the USD, it is all over now. According to the NYPost, IMF head Dominique Strauss-Khan (no Bob Pisani, it is not a she) was just arrested on board the first class cabin (thank you taxpayers) of a New York-Paris flight as it was about to take off. And here is where the story gets surreal: "Around noon today, a maid at the hotel [the Sofitel by Times Square] knocked on the door of Strauss-Khan’s room. After letting the maid in, Strauss-Khan allegedly threw the maid on the room’s bed and forced her to perform oral sex on him, said police sources. Strauss-Khan let the maid leave — and soon afterward, headed off to Kennedy Airport for his flight to Paris." Of course this will not be the first sexual misconduct for the head of the world's global pseudo bail out organization: as a reminder back in 2008 the IMF hired a law firm to investigate whether its chief had an improper relationship with a female employee, Piroska Nagy. Back then he got off. This time he won't (even though he did... in a way), and it appears that the IMF is about to lose its head, meaning the fate of literally unlimited bailout funding is now up in the air. Also, it appears that being head of major bureaucracy does not automatically mean getting head on an ad hoc, and involuntary basis. Lastly, we are stunned it was not Herman Von Rompuy or G-Pap on the receiving end.

More from the Post:

His arrest tonight could force him to postpone a planned meeting in Berlin on Sunday with German chancellor Angela Merkel.

Strauss-Khan, a leader of France’s Socialist Party, is the leading rival to President Nicholas Sarkozy in the 2012 election.

Sarkozy was said in a news report yesterday to have begun a smear campaign against his rival that focused on his lavish lifestyle — including Strauss-Khan’s purchase of suits from the same tailor who clothes President Obama.

But Strauss-Khan seems able to find trouble on his own. In 2008, he publicly admitted to "an error of judgment" for having an affair with an IMF subordinate.

In France’s 2007 vote, Strauss-Khan lost the Socialist Party nomination to Segolene Royal, who in turn fell to defeat against Sarkozy, leader of the right-wing Union for a Popular Movement.

But Sarkozy, who still sees Strauss-Khan as his likeliest electoral rival, is believed in France to have maneuvered him out of France by backing him to head the Washington-based International Monetary Fund.

Strauss-Khan is married to New York-born Anne Sinclair, a leading French TV journalist.

Naturally, being in charge of the IMF requires one to be not only a sexual deviant, but a thief:

[Strauss-Khan] was Minister of Economy and Finance from 1997 to 1999, when he resigned to battle charges he was paid for consulting work he never did. But judges decided he really did the work, and prosecutors were forced to admit they had no evidence of fraudulent motive.

Next up: we expect a letter from the IMF disclosing how the world will end if charges are pursued and if, heaven forbid, the IMF head is thrown in jail.

In the meantime, the website of the Smoking Gun must be on fire with one million bored Burssels bureaucrats awaiting the release of the IMF head's mugshot.

Lastly, here is an advance preview of the statement to be released by the IMF head (no pun intended): "If questioned about this matter in the future, I will simply refer the questioner back to this release."

He apparently got off at around noon today, too. And this is a classic TD-ism:  "Also, it appears that being head of major bureaucracy does not automatically mean getting head on an ad hoc basis."

Don't forget that Strauss-Khan comes from a long line of Jewish money controllers, such as Bernanke and Greenspan. Don't forget Summers or Ruben either. Don't forget Milton Friedman or the Chicago School Boys. Don't forget Bloomberg or Soros or John Paulson, all making billions at your expense.

For all you invested in silver, don't forget Gary Gensler, chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, who is their to hike margins on real money in case you goy get any ideas in your head that you can have real money in this system of QE.

Napoleon was not Jewish, but things have changed since through the years.  And for those who would deny and joke about the positions held in the U.S. financial industry and the key political positions affecting our economic future that are held by Jews would be nothing short of mistaken.

Like Barack Obama, Nixon, FDR and Wilson were controlled by agents of the Rothschilds.

BTW, Napoleon was not Jewish, and it was the Rothschilds who reaped the benefits of Waterloo.

"For once I agree with Ferguson. Immediate jumps to conspiracy theories are simply a bright flashing neon sign advertising intellectual laziness.

 

Still, it doesn't take much to demonstrate that ZH is overloaded with bigoted morons who fall over themselves when given the opportunity to make jokes about sexual assault.

Surely this is the group to garner reasonable investment advice or political commentary from. Alternatives? Why would you want to be anywhere else than a place full of Limbaugh clones? I'll take my responses off the air. Laughs.."

 

Generalizations? Please feel free to read my previous comments on this site. Each one was triggered by specific comments (usually related to bigotry or hypocrisy) and each has been extrapolated to highlight my overarching argument as stated in the quote above.

Additionally, all the responses that joke further about the sexual assault only add weight to my claim, not detract from it.

I think the word "troll" needs to be defined here. Yes, normally a troll is one who consistently makes a contrararian argument against the majority opinion on a thread; however, these comments made by such an individual usually A) add purposefully inflammatory and discriminatory language, not rationalized critiques B) are only meant to incite and not to analyze.

Conversely, I am analyzing the content here and evaluating it. Yes, it also incites defensive responses - but my goal, despite what many of you may think, is not to incite - it is to inform new members to be critical of the content provided here because of the community's dubious notoriety for bigoted and hypocritical stances. That, and to simply call bigotry and hypocrisy out for its own sake. This would be "trolling" if my claim(s) were untrue - but as demonstrated here in the comments below, there is a compelling reason to believe they are not. If this stimulates conversation on this "open thread", all the better.

I'm hurt, LH. (not really)

First, a side note: Approximately thirty-four weeks ago we had a discussion about U.S. corporate collaboration with Nazi Germany that was respectful and interesting.

Did you miss the progression of my contributions since this conversation? It went something like this:

Initially, I engaged community members like you and had discussions with substantive content;

Then I joined in with more long-term members in lamenting the lack of moderation - particularly since Marla left - as the site became more popular with various wingnut constituencies;

Then I began engaging some of the low quality, trollish comments containing bigoted, homophobic, and misogynistic language.

Subsequently I came to the conclusion that the "community" consistently responded negatively to calling out individual bigots, and observed that these expressed attitudes were getting more consistent and more numerous over time. I argued that this was an inherently hypocritical stance to have, as a group exhibiting this behavior collectively, when the supposed goal of ZeroHedge is to "get the word out to the people" about how individuals, populations, and states were being hurt by widespread corruption and exploitation by predatory megacorporations.

I also found the preponderance of extreme libertarian attitudes hypocritical in conjunction with criticisms of the greediness of large financial institutions -- when basically this libertarian ethos boils down to selfishly ignoring various societal tendencies toward forming cohesive units, which depend upon collectively supported infrastructures and institutions. Apparently this historically observable fact was so unreasonable that it was considered "statist."  So to boil down this analysis down: the selfish people are decrying selfishness. Hypocrisy defined.

This brings us to today. Be defensive if you like. I will continue to make these point(s).

You are generalizing :) You take certain biases, and associate them to the entire group. This would make sense, if those properties would indeed apply to 80% of people. They don't.

Examples: Does this thread contain more posts, that assume that it was a trap, than posts that do not make such assumptions? No. In fact, the opposite is the case. But you can of course take the minority posts as an example, and then make an invalid extrapolation

Example 2: Jokes. Really, holy shit, how many websites can you name, where such an article would NOT result in jokes? Is there such a website at all? Surely, this must mean that all websites that post this story are mistrustworthy! Are the jokes among other things disrespectful and sexist? Yes, but can you name websites where this wouldn't happen? I do not mean this as an excuse - in fact, i'm honestly disgusted by the frequent sexism on this site, but not because it is anything unusual on the web, but instead because i would expect something better from THIS community.

"Feel free to not address my criticism of libertarianism."

 

There is no common sense, logic or historical precident to the arguement

what-so-ever. That is why no critique is needed: there is nothing

valid, accurate or thoughtful to critique...

 

Also, a critique implies you actually care about what other people say

but your posts and replies imply that you, in fact, do not really care

about anything except your: "overarching argument"...

I'll address your libertarian academic biggotry. First please define an "extreme libertarian" ?

To me a libertarian simply wants freedom in his life (from parasites). Be they Marxists/socialists/progressives or Fascists/corporate monopolists. They want to live free from the totally failed and corrupt State known as 'democratic government', which is no such thing. It is in fact a parasitical monopoly power structure that has been rammed with human scum and an incubator of such throughout its entire stinking, warmongering, bankrupting, totalitarian, ignorant existence

"..this libertarian ethos boils down to selfishly ignoring various societal tendencies toward forming cohesive units, which depend upon collectively supported infrastructures and institutions."

We are free to join packs/herds anytime, whether that be family units, economic units (ie. companies) or social units (the Bird Watchers Club). We are free to join institutions if we so wish, like the Biologists Society, Insititution for the Study of Marxism or The Freedom Fest. There's a difference between free people joining or choosing to leave insitutions and being forced (see the States authoritarian thugs at the Income Tax Dept) as the State does with no free will but by threats of further financial theft (fines) and incarceration (jail) if you do not pay the parasites their constant demands.

There the line is drawn between democracy and tyranny, consent and force, freedom and totalitarism. Understood?

"So to boil down this analysis: the selfish people are decrying selfishness. Hypocrisy defined."

You've clearly got an academic (spaceman) background to get your thinking so twisted and so far up your rectum! Being a libertarian doesn't make you selfish because that would demand something for entirely personal gain off someone else.

We demand only that we are free to live our lives, prosper and propagate (selflessness through self sufficiency). Your demand is we give up our freedom to be robbed by the State. Give up self responsibility to a collective or a 'leadership', some monopoly institution who is free to pick our pockets and abuse our liberty throughout our lives. The usual fuking academic BS nonsense about it being a 'democracy' having representatives decide what's best for us.

Some people are full blown adults boyo, it may be 'news' to you but most of us don't need some bankers rent-boy called Barrack Obumma deciding how to live our lives, what policies on education for our kids, what cars to drive, how much to piss down the toilet on bankrupt trains, wars with foreign people we have absolutely no beef with, bailing out banks that should be bankrupt 3 years ago, what monopoly money system we are forced to use, etc etc etc etc etc etc.

Quite apart from the fact that the State, the Law/judiciary, central banking and 'democracy' has always ended in farce andnever worked once in history to represent anyone exceept its own totalitarian, warmongering, thieving self interest. The State is societies thief/parasite/evil incarnate. Rub your academic idealism (garbage) up against the big stink of Govt reality sometime and you might pull your head of your arse

Your character attacks and mischaracterizations invalidate your argument.

You seem to not be able to separate fallacy arguments from philosophical ones. But don't worry - your "community" is behind you with the same mental midget attitude. There aren't going to be many people challenging your bullshit here. I'd venture to bet you're a little more timid when you aren't surrounded by sympathizers.

I strongly agree with your problem with libertarianism. I get sick of making the same point to my libertarian friends but it seems the human desire to chase the next utopia is too strong for some. I don't disagree with the general direction. It's just you need a state (of some sort) to make it work. Of course our current ruling authorities are of dubious  quality, but "libertarianism" as a solution is not really very nuanced; it reminds me of "What have the Romans ever done for us?". Reality's a little more complicated than that.

That is a slippery slope argument that yields more platitudes than something someone should take seriously. "Oh we'll never reach perfection therefore it is perfect how things are."

The assumption that you can reach an "ideal" is of course, nonsense, but striving towards the ideal (going towards that direction) is better than either staying static, or worse moving backwards.

Yes, calling someone a troll by utilizing homophobic epithets is surely the way to convince your bigoted friends on ZH that the one person with enough guts to call you and your "community" out on their shit is only doing this for negative attention. If fact, I'm demonstrating that it doesn't take much to completely derail your bigoted circle jerks here and point out the blatant hypocrisy of this website.

This is a community of trolls. A troll breeding ground, if you will. How many of you spend time on other sites spreading this bile-filled hate?

So what have learned here?

A) people like Reese will never have their comments junked to the point where they are removed because the ZH "community" condones hate-filled comments.

B) The presence of numerous bigoted views points fatally undermines the credibility of ZeroHedge

C) Reese probably needs a psyche evaluation of his own.

I was not aware that anyone considered the comment section of ZH to be "the group to garner reasonable investment advice or political commentary from."

I don't need anyone on ZH to tell me that sexual assault is not a joke, and I don't gather investment advice, or advice of any other nature, from the comment area.  You're shadow-boxing: there are no holds barred on ZH, which is a double-edge sword.  You just felt the other side of the sword.

I don't like the tone of the post, either, and I don't like the "head" jokes: if this is true, that last thing we should be doing is joking about it, because that is just what these immoral pyschopaths want us to do---to think that violating people is funny.  Its not funny.  But that's not why I come here.  Given everything else ZH does, I can deal with a few tasteless one-liners in posts every now and then, and if I don't want to read the comments, I  don't.

I'm very skeptical of things: police are very corrupt and it means nothing to me that someone gets arrested or detained or questioned by the police, because any one of us can be accused of anything at anytime and get arrest, detained, questioned.  I hope you're right just because then woman is lying, which is much easier to repair than sexually assault; I hope she was sexually assaulted, for her own sake.

No offense to either you or "Id fight Gandhi," but do read ZH very much? I don't - I've commented on maybe, three dozen threads over a two year period. (no, I wasn't always Maniac Researcher and yes, I used to participate in conversations prior to this current system for posting comments) When I do visit, I have no trouble coming upon boatloads of victim blaming, woman hating, minority bashing, blatant neo-nazi anti-semitic conspiracy theories, picking on the poverty and disaster stricken, etc etc. So yes, I do have an overarching observation to make here.

You see, the supposed claim here is neutrality - the existence of "an open thread." This is bullshit and I've been calling it out as such. By not moderating and essentially ignoring the types of comments I've just highlighted - while simultaneously attacking and junking criticisms - this does expose a particular position; not neutrality. So, to reference an earlier comment by another individual, fuck off with your supposed "double edged sword."

"No holds barred" is simply a way of excusing hate. The individuals that cowardly hide about this assumption do not like being called out on their bigotry. Whining about "political correctness" is just another way of saying, "I want to express my discriminatory attitudes in peace and not acknowledge that these attitudes equal disrespect, injustice, and violence in the real world." The only people that fully buy this argument are individuals that share this attitude, whether they admit it or not. There are plenty of valid arguments to be made; a bigoted one isn't one of them.

Many feel frustrated that we are supposed to adhere political correctness and feel guilty about everything.

Why should we feel badly when we point out a person acting out a negative stereotype?

Maybe if they knew they were bringing negative attention to their people they would try to live to a higher, more respectable standard instead of crying for political correctness.

Exactly my thoughts.  There are usually at least 4 different levels of indifference that this had to pass through:  Housekeeping supervisor, hotel security, hotel management and then the NYPD.  DSK is one of the most powerful people in the world.  Usually hotel management will put the kiobosh on anything like this before it gets to the NYPD.  I'm curious to know the extent of the maid's injuries.  Also, why didn't she just take care of business and bite down?

It's good to see ya nmewn.  It is indeed well known to everyone that has spent any time in or near France that the; "Beware of the wild Wookies" sign is always posted there.

DSK's story is an ageless one concerning the constructs of elite reality hitting that hard, unforgiving wall called objective circumstances.  That's not luck, that just is.  Luck woulda been scooping the digits on the fly, with a nifty follow through.  Clearly the dude lacks dimensionality and/or the wit to make proper use of his publicly funded AMEX expense account.  And this guy is a top thinker?  WOW

But yes, he was an arrogant, asshole, pervert prick.  But then you already knew that, right?  ;=/P

But as far as the story goes (and believe me I have no love for the IMF) there is a whiff of set-up about it.  Already there are different versions of the facts:- in one, SHE lets herself into the room & HE comes out of the bathroom; in another, HE lets HER into the room?  And he has time to finish dressing, finish packing (& forgets his phone?), walk to the elevator, go down the elevator, walk past reception (& MAYBE checks out), get into his taxi or limo, be driven to the airport, walk to check-in, check in, go through 'security', walk down to the plane, and be seated in FIRST-CLASS.  Then the 'police' arrive, literally in the nick of time, to escort him VERY PUBLICLY out of a First-Class cabin ... ?

I'm sorry, but the whole thing sounds just a little sus to me ... we'll just to wait & see, won't we?

TD is right though...the menace to USD downplay via SDR was DSK's big game plan. Today, there was a key meeting scheduled with Merkel on Euro. The IMF is now covered in this shit. It will take them time to recoup as will the french political scene where DSK had been built up as the social democratic saviour of France in next year's presidential election.

It is as bogus as it goes.

A 62-years old man jumps on a 25-years old maid to perform an oral sex just a few minutes before a departure to an airport? Come on. It does not hold any water. It is just ridiculous. Did he take Viagra pills just before his scheduled trans-Atlantic flight?

Just because, few years ago,  a man had a consensual affair with a woman means nothing. Almost all normal men have affairs outside of their marriage.  It may be not too smart of him to get involved with a subordinate but it was not a crime. It is exclusively between a man and his wife to discuss this issue.

The voice of reason.

They were willing to start wars to protect the dollar's status; why wouldn't they be willing and able to set up Strauss?

The whole Sarkozy smear campaign issue being reported in the papers is an obvious attempt to cloud the waters.

(Not to say Strauss isn't vermin.)

Except that DSK has a long history of incidents of rape and abuse of power for sexual favours. Of course, those cases were shoved in the memory hole as soon as they emerged thanks to Libération (Rothchild), Le Monde (Gunzbourg), Figaro (Dassault) etc.

DSK will run scot free from this, as he did many times before; the mishpoka takes care of their own.

"the mishpoka takes care of their own"

... which is why I believe he wouldn't have been arrested unless he'd fallen foul of the Inner Party.

He won't be attending some pretty important meetings this week on sovereign debt.

Perhaps he immediately departed to an airport after performing forced oral sex and after he figured he couldn't get away with it.  I mean, do you really think the NYPD is going to come arrest you if you're in France?
