IMF Chief Strauss-Kahn Removed Via Frame-Up

Begin Excerpt
IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, was arrested this week for criminal sex acts, attempted rape and unlawful detention of his victim. To add insult to his criminal status Straus-Kahn was held in a cell with prisoners who are known to carry sexually transmitted diseases. This is extremely rare for a highly placed international star to be arrested for criminal acts. Insiders have an informal type of immunity that allows them to get away with almost anything as long as it can be covered up. Straus-Kahn doesn't have diplomatic immunity, so France, the EU and the IMF have had to cover for him before in his other escapades. The IMF chief resigned, and the IMF is said to be seeking a non-European replacement.
Prof. Michel Chossudovsky thinks that "The arrest of IMF Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn has all the appearances of a frame-up ordered by powerful members of the financial establishment, in liaison with France's Nicolas Sarkozy, whose presidency has served the interests of the US at the expense of those of France and the European Union.
"Immediately following Strauss Kahn's arrest, pressures were exerted by Washington to speed up his replacement as Managing Director of the IMF preferably by a non-European, an American or a handpicked candidate from an 'emerging market economy' or a developing country.
"Strauss-Kahn is a member of elite groups who meet behind closed doors. He belongs to the Bilderberger group. Categorized as one of the world's most influential persons, he is an academic and politician rather than a banker. In contrast to his predecessors at the IMF, he has no direct affiliation to a banking or financial institution." This last comment is crucial because it means that Straus-Kahn was chosen to head the IMF solely because of his insider relationships, not his financial experience.
So one must ask, was he taken down by the establishment for crossing them, as Prof. Chossudovsky thinks? Financial analyst Mike Whitney believes that he got on the wrong side of the big bankers who control the IMF by pushing for a kindler gentler approach to lending to debt ridden poor nations. Third World nations have long opposed the austerity measures the IMF demanded as a condition for more lending and periodic bailouts. Whitney thinks the past tight money policy of the IMF was in support of good economics and free markets--that the big bankers are hard nosed about their money and don't like lending to dead beat countries.
Not so. The IMF and World Bank run a kind of alternating soft and hard policy in order to trap third tier nations into the globalist net of financial control. Whitney forgets about the past 3 decades of soft loans that got all of Africa and Latin America hooked on foreign capital inputs. Every Latin American nation, including those with oil is up to their ears in debt to various globalist banks. If Strauss-Kahn really displeased the establishment who put him there, they could have just as easy asked him to resign.
In my opinion, Strauss-Kahn was taken down because he was a political threat to Nicolas Sarkozy. Sarkozy has proven to be a particularly useful asset to the globalists in fronting for every new foreign policy intervention, even when going against the will of the French people. Politically, Strauss-Kahn comes from a Leftist background and would have challenged France's eager participation in the continuing debacle in Libya.
Fortunately, for the globalists, the IMF Chief's constant philandering made it easy to be taken down when convenient. Big wigs like Strauss-Kahn have a standing arrangement with Air France that they can show up at any flight and pre-empt any other first class passenger. He tried to do so in making a quick escape from America. The NY police showed uncharacteristic speed in tracking down Strauss Kahn to this flight and dramatically pulling him off the plane just before leaving the gate.
This certainly wasn't the first time he has preyed upon women. Women are surfacing all over Europe and America with horrors stories about Strauss-Kahn's sexual predation. Everyone of these had been covered up before, including the rape of a former International Monetary Fund employee. The IMF had been officially warned about DSK in private, yet they completely ignored the charges, maintaining DSK's informal immunity.
The UK Telegraph dug up the fact that "Dominique Strauss-Kahn hired prostitutes from the 'Manhattan Madam' who infamously also served Eliot Spitzer, the disgraced former Governor of New York, she claimed on Wednesday night. Kristin Davis said she provided young women for the IMF chief in 2006, as he ran for the French Socialists' presidential nomination, and that one complained about his aggressive and rough behavior. "Her story coincides with Mr Strauss-Kahn's visit to New York in 2006 for a conference hosted by Bill Clinton.
Ron Paul, who makes no secret about his disgust of IMF policies, said Strauss-Kahn demonstrates why the Fund has problems."These are the kind of people that are running the IMF and we want to turn the world finances and the control of the money supply to them," Paul said.
