Original message The Amerikan Police State Strides Forward (Strauss-Kahn)


I don't think I believe in the whole setup theory here, but ithere IS a sort of pattern. Spitzer, Ritter, Edwards-they all seem to have feet of clay that make it easy for their right-wing enemies to take them down.

http://www.opednews.com/articles/The-Amerikan-Police-St... (http://www.opednews.com/articles/The-Amerikan-Police-State-by-paul-craig-roberts-110517-367.html)

Strauss-Kahn was the first IMF director in my lifetime, if memory serves, who disavowed the traditional IMF policy of imposing on the poor and ordinary people the cost of bailing out Wall Street and the Western banks. Strauss-Kahn said that regulation had to be reimposed on the greed-driven, fraud-prone financial sector, which, unregulated, destroyed the lives of ordinary people. Strauss-Kahn listened to Nobel economist Joseph Stiglitz, one of a handful of economists who has a social conscience.

Perhaps the most dangerous black mark in Strauss-Kahn's book is that he was far ahead of America's French puppet, President Sarkozy, in the upcoming French elections. Strauss-Kahn simply had to be eliminated.

It is possible that Strauss-Kahn eliminated himself and saved Washington the trouble. However, as a well-travelled person who has often stayed in New York hotels and in hotels in cities around the world, I have never experienced a maid entering unannounced into my room, much less when I was in the shower.

In the spun story, Strauss-Kahn is portrayed as so deprived of sex that he attempted to rape a hotel maid. Anyone who ever served on the staff of a powerful public figure knows that this is unlikely. On a senator's staff on which I served, there were two aides whose job was to make certain that no woman, with the exception of his wife, was ever alone with the senator. This was done to protect the senator both from female power groupies, who lust after celebrities and powerful men, and from women sent by a rival on missions to compromise an opponent. A powerful man such as Strauss-Kahn would not have been starved for women, and as a multi-millionaire he could certainly afford to make his own discreet arrangements.



Too funny. :D

I suspect that he wasn't so deprived of sex that he couldn't find a hooker in New York City. I'm sure there is a joke or adage in there somewhere.

Who ever wrote that has it backward. In a police state, such a powerful and important man would not be in jail and the poor immigrant maid would either be silent or silenced.

For a group that considers themselves on the side of the dispossessed, this sure is a strong defense of a member of the Ruling Class who apparently thought he could use, and discard, an unimportant woman as he saw fit.

That's because those they are defending have a D beside their name.

Obviously, not. That poor black cat who always managed to get a white paint stripe down her back never wanted Pepe Le Pew to touch her, either, except for the one episode in which she accidentally gets drunk.


The victim in this case is a legal immigrant, and a hotel maid who according to her lawyer, liked her job and was thrilled to be living in the USA. So, the DUmmies are not going to have any sympathy for her.

53. if people werent making stories up about how a rich powerful white man would no way NEED to rape
a maid, and suggesting shy is lying, then you probably would nto have the people defending this woman.

there is NO eveidence, none, that this was a conspiracy. but we have created one and wont it be nifty for this rich, white, powerful, man to be able to use this as his defense. she has the dna, scratches on his body, sperm.... yet still... it was all one grand ole conspiracy about the po rich powerful abusive (history) white man that is saving the people of the world thru socialism (not) and she is a ready sacrifice.

he has his defense. you all are creating his defense for him.

it is sick

4. Ritter?...You're gonna use Scott "hey kid, wanna see my penis" Ritter as evidence of conspiracy?
