IMF Chief Christine Lagarde's flat raided by French police

Police have searched the Paris home of the head of the International Monetary Fund as part of a fraud investigation centred on a supporter of former president Nicolas Sarkozy.

Christine Lagarde's flat was raided along with that of her office manager and the home of businessman Bernard Tapie, a former politician, actor, singer and television celebrity.

The IMF chief has been the subject of preliminary investigations for "complicity in the embezzlement of public funds", since 2011, when Tapie was awarded €284m of public money in compensation in a financial dispute while she was economy minister.

Karma: chickens coming home to roost.

Garbage in, garbage out. It's time to take out this trash.

Psychopaths gravitate to high power

+ Psychopaths have warehouses full of dirty secrets and high crimes.

The combination means that other psychopaths on their level of power will seek out those secrets and backstab each other for political and economic maneuvering.

This is what's behind these occasional "outings" of high profile globalists in the press.

It has nothing to do with justice.

It's the wolves eating each other.

Inspector Clouseau

...is taking over the investigation.

Oui :)

Yes, thanks for the smile.

Yes, thanks for the smile. As I tell myself now :

It's gotten so outrageous and absurd that I better try take it lighter once in a while if I don't want to end throwing myself under a truck.

So What's New!

The IMF is corrupt. Her predecesor shacked up with the hotel maid. I wonder what she did to deserve a raid.

"I wonder what she did to deserve a raid."

It's 1 + 2 = 3, in the French routine :

She was in the previous government.

Typical French witch hunt. SOLE PURPOSE = MSM + DISTRACTION.

That's our typical post-election (in the 1st year) French witch hunt.

When the "right" wins over the (downright) left, or the other way round, as it's the case, here. The Stalinians have it, this time.

Lagarde was in Sarkozy's government, 2007 to 2012, in addition to her IMF functions.

She used to be a great business woman, DECADES ago, then after entering politics she started rotting, LIKE ALL THE OTHERS. It's just her turn, and diabolicizing her along with the big bucks of "the riches".

What a joke. The socialists are hard trying to distract the people, by putting all of today's blame on yesterday's crooks. Of course.

The French, my people, will never understand how it works. If you think America is brainwashed... consider this :

what does that tell you when a SUBJECT people re-elect the socialists leeches WHO DESTROYED our economy and mentalities since the 1970s, AND STILL DO ... FOUR TIMES in 3 decades ?

It's amazing how people can collectively get used TO BEING RAPED.

I warned my relatives over there over the last 6 months that nasty stuff is coming to the entire country, nobody will be spared. The capital HAS BEEN FLEEING AWAY already for almost as long as the new thief as entered his Elysee office.

France is now well known to be bankrupt. A leak gaffe made on radio by a gov. official...

Only the ECB printing and probably the Fed's USD secretly injected in our banksters' safes sustain it to save the face and not trigger a general panic around, in smaller countries.

Nigel Farage is right. It's pretty much hopeless for Europe, unless a miracle.

I dunno

I find it rather enjoyable seeing one rat attacked by another rat. It's what they both richly deserve. I've no sympathy for the arrogant and elitist IMF/ECB any more than French socialists.

I mean no offense, I'm just stating my feelings:

we French will eventually get what we deserve if we don't wake up to our neglect and complacence with that collectivist horror.

JUST LIKE AMERICANS, MIGHT, TOO.

Bread and Circuses can only last for so long before CHAOS.
