Dominique Strauss Kahn Trial: Who is the maid and why did she halve her legal team ?

The theatre that surrounds the arrest of Dominique Strauss Kahn continues.
Did we all get to read or see on the news- the maids heckling Strauss Kahn?
Surely you did! Ever seen anything like that before?

"Theatrics outside the court yesterday were further stoked by hotel maids pushing against police barriers jeering Mr Strauss-Kahn as he, accompanied by his defence team and his wife, Anne Sinclair, arrived for his formal arraignment. The hotel employees, bussed in by their union and most dressed in uniforms "


Yup, theatrics!
Why did the union bus these workers in? How much were they paid for the day? Were they instructed to wear their uniforms? Who paid for this little show?

Well this has been about trial by media all along....Clearly someone is out to humiliate Strauss-Kahn. And, it ain't the maid! Or is it? At this point I am completely torn about the role of the maid, victim or something else? I just don't know?

But speaking of the maid in question.
The American media has not named her. But, the foreign press did!

As reported all over the foreign press her name is -Nafissatou Diallo.
Something I find a bit problematic about Nifissatou are the different pictures of her.
Which one is she?

Is this her?



Or is this her?


Or is this her


I also find it quite interesting she bears the same name as a known writer, quite obviously Nifassatou Diallo.

This autobiography covers Nafissatou Diallo's life from the early 1940s until the mid 1960s. It gives a penetrating account of life in a large polygamous family in Dakar during those years. Nafissatou Diallo lost her mother when aged only one, but became very close to her grandmother and her father who she loved and admired. The lively little girl described in the first part of the book grew up to become an inquisitive teenager and eventually a qualified nurse who had nothing but praise for the education and opportunities she was given both at home and at school. Well integrated in a caring environment, mindful of traditional life and family religious beliefs, she has no qualms in adapting readily to French ways and culture."

Nafissatou is called a post colonialist (African) writer. You can read a bit more on that here

Of course this Nifassatou would be much older, perhaps already deceased? Yes, she passed in 1982. Curious, we have a woman who shares the very same name as her making these accusations?

What I also find really, really interesting.
I mean quite odd, from a timing standpoint, right before the trial really kicks into gear....
the maid has pared down her "legal team"?

-The maid who has accused Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexual assault and attempted rape has pared down her legal team
-Jeffrey Shapiro, who handled the initial crush of media attention focused on the 32-year-old woman, is no longer with the team.
-Neither is prominent civil rights attorney Norman Siegel.


Why?

Another thought?
Did she pare down the defence team herself?
Or did the two lawyers leave on their own?
I just wonder, with all the sensation that has surrounded this incident??
What a case to promote oneself as a hotshot lawyer on!
Worth staying on just for all the media attention.The notoriety to be gained.
Better then bought and paid for advertising!
Unless?

  1. Hi Penny -
    nice article, but why do you call it "defense" when the maid is on offense? I didn't see the other articles refer to it that way.

  3. Hey Pen,...It's a scam, I don't care how pretty or not this maid is, a squillionaire doesn't have to rape a chamber maid to get off and if he wants to, to get off: There is a massive yiddish owned and managed worldwide fetizh prozzie racket for squillionaires as we all know and this whole deal stinks of internecine rivalry!

    Welcome to the Apocalypse.

  6. aferrismoon, I am going to post your comment here.
    Why you got the 503 is beyond me?

    Anyway


    "Good find on that name-twinning.

    Alternative: African woman is found to have lied. They'd probably be able to milk that angle too, god knows what for though.

    The problem is guilt or otherwise the story is 'written' in such a way that defies intelligence. The media even wrote a piece on The Special Victims Unit [ who interviewed the victim I think, or maybe Kahn] and comparing it to the TV series; try to find it , you'll laugh.

    Descriptions of the Trial-By-Media [TBM] and courtcases, jury selection, trial location etc. in Dave McGowan's 'Programmed To Kill' might prove pertinant in DSK's trial."

    The name twinning was really odd. It would not be a name well known to western audiences that is for certain.
    I found it interesting that the two women have very similar pasts, besides identical names and the author resided in France after having left Africa.

    And all the connections to France, in this entire scenario

    From Sarkozy and the election
    From the French banks turning on the EU
    To the possibility that the French Lagarde may head the IMF (she is the only European that is acceptable to the US)

    It almost seemed as if it was a covert way of sending a message?

  7. The PTB are up to something and are using the DSK and Weiner story to distract us GOY.

    The Zionist MSM have run numerous stories about Weinie's disgusting behavior and that's highly unusual for them to go after one of their own.

    Weiner is a loyal Israeli-Firster and never tires of slamming Palestinian, telling lies about Iran and shoveling huge amounts of OUR money to the country he's loyal to, Israel.

    Something's afoot, Watson and we'd best keep our eyes open and cell phone cameras handy.

    Maybe it's related to "Operation Red Dragon" set for Chicago this week?

    CHICAGO, 6/6/11 — Mass casualties will be triaged and mass deaths buried in the Red Dragon disaster drills Wednesday through Friday. This report affirms my Friday article, Chicago Aon Center Alert, and requires a six-day warning, effective Monday, 6/6/11, through Saturday, 6/11/11.

  9. Hello Penny, I wouldn't interpret too much in the homonymous name of the maid. The naming system in Africa is quite different to our germanic patronymous system, in use in most western countries. Living now for more than 12 years with Africans of different regions, I can attest that people in Africa reuse a lot the same names. In fact what looks to us (and in our paperwork) like a family name is often nothing more than a clan name. So the Diallo name for example is a very frequent name in west-africa (Senegal, Guinea etc). It is also a tradition to name children after other relatives like aunts, uncles and cousins.
    The whole concept of family and relatives is also very different from ours. In one of the links you provided which shows the "brother" of this lady, it's quite possible that this man is only a half cousin or something like that. There is no concept of uncle and aunt, you are automatically also the son or the daughter of the brothers and sisters of your mom.
    The administrations in these countries look for the casual observer like ours in Europe but don't believe that for a second. You can get any paperwork you need (birth certificates and such) if you can pay and know someone.

    This doesn't change anything on the question if she's a simple victim or a honey trap or something else.

  10. "So the Diallo name for example is a very frequent name in west-africa (Senegal, Guinea etc)."

    thanks for that bit of info Gallier.

    I learn something new everyday.


    But then you mention this?

    "The administrations in these countries look for the casual observer like ours in Europe but don't believe that for a second. You can get any paperwork you need (birth certificates and such) if you can pay and know someone."

    Now that leaves me wondering?

    Is it possible this is not the maid's real name?

    Perhaps knowing the anomalies of these African administrations, that someone, for the right amount of money, got hold of some improper paperwork?


    "This doesn't change anything on the question if she's a simple victim or a honey trap or something else."

    No,it doesn't.

  11. Yes, it's possible that it is not her name, that she's not the age she gives, etc. But it doesn't mean either that she's not who she claims she is.
    For example, my former Comorian wife (I say wife here very loosely, as we were not married by western standards, but were married by the Imam (btw, did I mention that I became muslim during that ceremony?)) had a french identity that had no resemblance to her real identity. She had used the identity of her niece, so she changed her name from Binti to [snip]. The Comorians don't have patronyms so she was assigned one using the first name of her father (it's the algorithm used by the French administration in our newest Départements (since March 1st France counts Mayotte as its 6th oversea département).
    In her paperwork she was listed as born in 1972 but in reality she was even older as me (I'm born in 1965). In that time I witnessed several instances of false paperwork.

  12. Hey Gallier

    "Yes, it's possible that it is not her name, that she's not the age she gives, etc. But it doesn't mean either that she's not who she claims she is."

    Sigh...
    I gotta look at it from as many angles as possible.

    And yet, you are right, she could be entirely legit.
    But, I still don't think so.
    And I have gone back and forth with her in this case.
    Thinking it could have been a mistaken identity kind of thing.

    YOu know DSK waiting for his hooker and get's the maid?

    But there is something about her high power law team?
    The way she has managed to stay out of the media?
    How is that even possible?
    These losers camp outside of jails, homes and everything. I cannot believe they are doing this out of "respect for the victim"
    To me there is clearly a hands off order in place.
    From the higher ups.

  13. Two many things don't ring right in the prosecution's case and this really isn't about an alleged rape. It's a political take-down with a smaller agenda pulling the focus off the bigger one and what a one it is!

    By the way, Diallo's husband, Amadou Diallo, was involved in an infamous case with the NYPD in which he was shot. 4 plain clothes officers came to his living quarters and while he was reaching for his wallet they drew on him and continued to fire long after they should have and killed him. They were acquitted. The family was awarded $3M. He was killed in 1999.

  14. Gallier, if your around.....

    "(btw, did I mention that I became muslim during that ceremony?)"

    no you had not mentioned that previously.

    How did that work out for you?
    And what exactly does this mean?
    Have you suffered discrimination?

    If you want to share, I am interested.

    I want to ask you if you have seen anything making the connection you are alluding too?

    "By the way, Diallo's husband, Amadou Diallo, was involved in an infamous case with the NYPD in which he was shot."

    You are not the first person who has made mention of this, that I have heard.
    I read the article you linked but, it doesn't establish a connection?

  16. Hi Penny, in fact I'm an atheist with catholic upbringing, meaning I was baptized as an infant, made the obligatory communion with 10 and then never went to church for anything else than mariages and funerals. Contrary to my brother, I'm not militantly atheist, this means if someone is religious I abstain from telling them that they are wrong, wrong, wrong.

    This doesn't mean that I don't stand behind my position of atheism. I went even so far as to ask for my radiation from the official Catholic church list in France, which is a highly symbolic as there is no advantage nor inconvenience to do so (contrary to Germany where one pays church taxes).

    So when I started to go out with my neighbour who came from Comoros, it didn't bother me that they were all muslims. After a certain time and after she was repudiated by her husband (yeah she committed adultery when going out with me (I should have been warned, ha ha) and no she wasn't lapidated).

    After a certain time we wanted to marry, more to please her deadly ill mother, to appease her before she dies. So to get married, I had to convert, which is quite simple (Islam and Christianity (esp. Cathoicism & Orthodoxy) are universal religions, meaning they apply to everybody, so the entry level is low, contrary to the old testament based religions with Election Syndrome).

    The only conditions I had to meet were, to pronounce the Shahada (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shahada) in front of 4 elder witnesses and to be circumcised.

    The latter condition would have been a show-stopper, but fortunatly, as a child I suffered from a phimosis and had been operated.

    I was therefore accepted without restrictions in the community of Comorians. I learnt a little bit the language, accepted fully their traditions and had a real f.. good time for 2 years.
    When I noticed that she was cheating on me (as I said, I should have seen it coming), I kicked her out, repudiated her even pro forma, so that she could take it seriously.

    The interesting part of the story is that I never hid that I was an atheist and didn't believe in a God, but that didn't pose any problem. They all told me that it was not important and that it's a thing between me and Allah. If I don't believe it's my thing, they weren't supposed to try to convince me, as this would only bring insincerness (sorry for making up new english words).

    Later, when I went to Gabon, not a day went by without someone prosletizing for their specific brand of God. Adherents of the "Églises éveillées" (which is afaik a CIA sponsored destabilization effort) were the most annoying but the Catholics were not far behind. It was also in Gabon that I discovered what a Sayan is and what a petty, little, vindicative ideology Judaism is, but that is another story.

    You understand now, why I can not follow the mainstream depiction of Muslims, Christians and jews, as they fly directly in the face of my 1st hand experience.

  17. Hey Penny,...gallier2,."I'm an atheist with catholic upbringing" of course you are an atheist, catholics are not Christians, or didn't you know that? Truly they're not, no snide remark, they are not christian, period!

    Of course your relationship fell on its arse, it was based on a lie[hello]it would appear by your confession that you have never been anywhere near YOUR own truth, how can you possibly begin to judge, ANYTHING?

    We are not the judge gallier2 nor are we the jury! We are the warrior or the lamb.

    It's all about choices brother, your choices are YOUR choices! Get over your self-ish-ness, no one cares and it is not helping!

  18. Hmmm, I don't get where veritas wants to go with that.
    The relation fell on its arse, not because of any religious reasons, it fell on its arse because she was a fucking whore. It was fun in the beginning, especially when she invited her female friends to join. But I had also other things to do in my life than that. Not giving it to her 3 times a day certainly contributed to her trying other things.
    She had also a fixation on anal sex and I always refused to give it her in the ass (it hurts like hell on my poor little operated willy).
    This, and my refusal to give her unlimited money, contributed to the ending of that story.
    The thing is, that I make a big distinction between my relationship with her and the experience I had with her family and friends.

    Sorry for the explicit language but the truth needs the true words.

  20. Well thanks sharing all that Gallier, I may have to wash my eyeballs, lol ;)

    "They all told me that it was not important and that it's a thing between me and Allah. If I don't believe it's my thing, they weren't supposed to try to convince me, as this would only bring insincerness"

    I understand what you are saying here.

    They didn't push it on you because if they did so, your devotion would not have been legitimate.
    YOu would not have truly believed.
    Seems sensible!

    Gallier, if she was cheatin on the first husband, that should have been a huge clue.

  21. Hey Veritas!

    I did not know Catholics were not Christians?

    Well actually from my understanding that is the view other Christians take of them- Protestants Christians don't see Catholics as christians, but, I don't get all that stuff anyway.

    I don't think I want to either, I just want everyone to be decent to everyone and respect our shared humanity!

    I don't think this is to much to ask, in fact, I believe it is easy to do.

    "Pen': In my prayers; I want, love light & peace for gallier2"

    I do to and that is what I want for myself and for you Veritas!

  22. Hey Penny,...I don't like to bang on about religiosity, but, in response to gallier2, I was not intending to offend or exploit his experience, I can empathize, my second wife was a trollop also. Haargh. Boi, did that Ho' get away with some loot and shenanigans!

    Hehhehm...now then; the trick of these religious scams is to become habitual to those that succumb, the whole Jesus was a god that became a man shyte was a result of the decisions made at the Council of Nicaea in Bithynia (present-day İznik in Turkey) by the Roman Emperor Constantine. The Catholic church was polyglot device manufactured to have broad bland appeal and little value, like a Big Mac. Add some spectacular stuff like corrupted miracles messianic advents and aa-wayyy we go. Of course the miraculous nature of this divinity incarnate is awesome to contemplate, however, the thought that a man can become a God is even more incredible to conceptualize. So, they manufactured the "Trinity" - no where is the trinity mentioned in the scriptures, NO WHERE!, nor is the manifestation of the "rapture" all voodoo and hooey. The yids that corrupted the original message to accommodate their own agenda have created the contradictions and confusion, yids are not remotely associated with the divine ineffable and islam is a late starter that tried very hard to understand the message, up until the yids corrupted that attempt and "wa'allah" we get wahhabist cods-wallop, sharia law and the other varietals of the original dogma.

    Or something like that, doh.


    There is the truth and there is horse-shit, the hard work starts when we attempt to sort it out.

    Cheers y'all

    I like the analogy!
    anywhere you know of I could read some more on this council of Nicea?
    It does have a familiarity to it,like I must have read something like this somewhere....
