What do we read in the story of Dominque Strauss Kahn, the once head of the IMF ?
A man ingloriously removed from a plane on a tarmac and accused of rape in an act of public humiliation. What really happened ?
Let’s look at the clues.
Eyes Wide Shut
DSK clearly led a depraved lifestyle, somewhat openly. However, the disturbing element is that he was known to be a rapist long before the charges in the USA. French TV more than 15 years ago on a comedy show joked how it was only a matter of time before he was arrested for rape. Given that background, how did he manage to move up to head the IMF ? How did he manage to slip through all the known accusations ?
Clearly, he was part of the Eyes Wide Shut Circle. One doesn’t make unless the club has something to hang you with. For DSK, it is clear that he was very used to having his way sexually and having all charges and investigations dropped. He was untouchable. As we have seen with other high profile cases, the oligarchy does not really suffer jail time. They are above the law.
Lagarde’s War on Russia
The next clue. Chistine Lagarde replaced DSK as the head of the IMF, after which the coup in Ukraine and the full court press on Russia began.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has agreed on a scheme of war financing for Ukraine. For the first time, according to Fund sources, the IMF is not only violating its loan repayment conditions, but also the purposes and safeguards of the IMF’s original charter.

As usual, the IMF carries out its role for oligarchical hegemony. Breaking all the its own rules, providing funding to a completely bankrupt Ukraine, and providing the means for further war against Russia, the IMF under Lagarde is a morally bankrupt organization. The next time you see someone from the IMF, please tell them they are low-life scum. Why do we let the media barinwash us into thinking they are something else ? These degenerates do not deserve any form of esteem or regard (No regard for Lagarde!) , but we should be treat them as the lowest of the low of humans.
DSK Loves Russia ?
The next clue. So after losing his job, but still not suffering any jail time, where does he end up ?
Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former chief of the International Monetary Fund whose career foundered in a series of sex scandals, is making a comeback in finance — this time, in Russia.
Rosneft, the Russian state oil company, has given Mr. Strauss-Kahn a position on the board of a banking subsidiary, the Russian Regional Development Bank. It is one of the first prominent job offers since Mr. Strauss-Kahn, a French economist and political leader, resolved the last of his legal troubles this year. (Source NYT )
In addition, he makes the board of another Russian financial institution:
Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who headed the International Monetary Fund for four years and was France’s finance minister for two, has been appointed to the supervisory board of the Russian Direct Investment Fund. (source Sputnik)
Next DSK shows up in the Russian ally, Serbia :
Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been retained by Serbia’s Socialist government to advise the prime minister and finance minister on managing the country’s debt as it seeks to join the EU, officials in Belgrade said Friday.
Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn has agreed to advise the Serbian government and is expected in Belgrade next week, Deputy Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic said Friday. (Source: France24)
So now we can paint the picture. It is likely that DSK did not go along with the neocon plan to overthrow the government in Ukraine and pressure Russia.He may have stood behind Russia – as do many in France and the rest of Europe, and for that slip, the oligarchy allowed him to be arrested. He lost his invincibility, his position at the IMF, and was dragged through a series of court cases. At the IMF, he was replaced by the pliant Ms. Lagarde who it seems would kill millions for the power and prestige.
Note that even a large part of the Russian world is run by oligarchs who also are “in bed” with this fellow. Anything goes in Russia for money and power.
Strauss-Kahn had told the court that group-sex sessions were rare “recreation” in his hectic schedule as IMF chief, taking place only four times a year because he had been very busy “saving the world from catastrophe” at the time of the US sub-prime crisis. (TheGuardian)
One quickly sees that DSK, like almost all major politicians, are basically sociopaths that have a warped and unrealistic view of their own contributions. He cannot see what a mess the IMF has made of Greece and other places. He is not saving the world, but making it a much worse place. These megalomaniacs think they are God’s gift to the world because the EYS club gives them money, power, and invincibility that allows them to rule over people without any remorse over the outcomes.
This story in a nutshell describes the corrupt and cynical power structure in which envelops the world today. Contrary to DSK’s assertion, it is the world that needs saving from the oligarchy and their institutions. (BTW, DSK also has a jewish background – if you hadn’t guessed by now – and is deeply in the French jewish circles of Sarkosy and BHL )
