DSK sex scandal setup linked to Obama
Examiner.com ^ | July 02, 2011 | Michael Shoesmith

Posted on 07/02/2011 8:15:05 PM PDT by jacknhoo

Why would he do that? This is the question many people asked of the rape accusation leveled against Dominique Strauss-Kahn; recently humiliated and removed head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

The biggest reason for asking the question was a total lack of logic behind raping a hotel maid while being such a public figure in charge of such a public institution and at the same time under consideration for a nomination to be president of France! It simply did not add up.

Kahn, known for his public fancy for women, was widely considered a womanizer by many published reports. He even said in an interview that his political enemies would probably use this as a way of attacking him prior to the French elections.

Today, July 1, it was revealed that the maid who accused him had actually lied about the event in question and Kahn will be released on his own recognizance. The setup has some deep and powerful roots, as you will see.

Kahn was replaced by Christine Lagarde. Lagarde, who is currently under investigation for ethics violations herself, has in her resume' a history of working for Chicago based law firm Baker & Mckenzie. Try to keep up now!

I doubt it. More likely the “sex scandal” is linked to the
sick cultural atmosphere, and the effed up judicial system
we’ve got in this country. It is linked to the O.J.Simpson trial,
to the Nifong case and to the war against white men in America.

Recall that “women don’t lie about rape”.

Obama won with his “Hope a Dope”. Strategy and the GOP candidate being a nasty, decrepit, old Penguin that we only voted for out of Obamanoia. Ain’t gonna happen this time. Obama is toast.

Perhaps. Perhaps we’ll learn more, but it’ll take foreign press to get to the bottom of this.

One way or another, the man was setup, if not not by his
political enemies, than by this whore and her accomplices.

Whether this is true or not, I just have to sit back in amazement! I am 61 years old and have lived through many government scandals, but in my wildest dreams I would never have imagined that the United States could have elected such a “One” as Obama as POTUS. The fact that the MSM contiues to cover for him is another source of amazement to me! Wake up, America!!

Interesting but not convincing. I wouldn’t give them credit for being this Machiavellian. For one thing the sexual act
DID take place, DNA everywhere. Are we going to say Baker & Mackenzie hired this woman to jump his bones coming out of the shower and he took her up on it?

It seems she blabbed about it a few hours later to one of her drug-dealing boyfriends asking how she might blackmail DSK. She does not sound smart enough to take part in such a massive conspiracy and a far too checkered character to build a case around. Furthermore, she also sounds like the sort who can’t be trusted to keep a secret.

Michael Savage devoted his whole show to this setup. He is the only person who called it when this once powerful man was taken down in this way.

Back in the 1960’s powerful politicians were assinated (JFK, RFK, MLK). Today, they are dealt with like this case and the former governor of NY who now works for CNN.

Ummmm...raping a woman is logical?

Gimme a break. This Strauss guy was full of himself and his own power...that is why he raped the maid. If he hadn't been stopped he would have kept up with garbage like this.

The attempt to frame LaGarde is just socialist trials lawyers saying ANYTHING to get their guy off the hook and perhaps still even elected in France. Strauss is as disgusting as they come.

women may lie about rape, but DNA sort of makes his innocence a question. If he can’t keep his pants on with women he barely knows, and even the local call girls don’t want him, maybe he shouldn’t be in charge of a major country.

And yes, I feel that way about Clinton...

Baker & Mckenzie is the representing firm for a Saudi phosphate company Ma'aden. The Saudi ties to Obama are unmistakable.

Saudi ties? Did someone say Saudi ties?

Believe me, I’m as cynical about The Usurper as anyone, but there’s not a major law firm in America that doesn’t have people who donated to Obama. By the standard in this article practically any criminal or nefarious element in the US is linked to Obama.

You can never have to much money or to much fun..As Mark Twain once said “Of course the truth is stranger than fiction, fiction has to make sense” I really think the maid flirted with him, did the deed and waited until he left (she went and clean another room according to the reports I read) then called the cops. That the NYPD could act this fast is another stranger than fiction occurrence!

The latest NYPost article conjectures that she was accustomed to trading sex for money, that she went to his room expecting that, and only cried foul when he refused to pay. Yes, there’s DNA evidence, but it only proves a sex act took place. You can’t prove rape (unconsented sex act) by DNA alone. You have to rely on testimony. And this testimonier is not terrible credible one way or another.

It’s surprising to me that high class hotels that cater to the rich and famous don’t do a better job of background checking every single employee. Unless prostitution is on her list of job duties.

Just the way this was handled makes me think that someone is trying to pressure this man into submitting to someone else’s ideas.

Sure he had sex with the maid. Most women know what it takes to seduce the majority of men on this planet. She made sure there was going to be a DNA sample.

This guy isn’t the violent type. A single officer, wearing a suit could have gone up to him while he was in the lounge at the airport and quietly arrested him. No fuss, no cameras, bring him downtown, question and book him.

Instead, uniformed officers were used to remove him from the plane and parade him through the airport in handcuffs. The media was certainly given prior notice of the arrest and the charges.

All this could have been avoided if he had just gone along with someone’s plan about some country’s financial difficulties. Next time the punitive consequences will be a car crash and his wife or daughter will pay the price of his insubordinate behavior.
