You can add D.C. Madame Deborah Jeane Palfrey to that long list of marvelously convenient mysterious deaths, ‘accidents’ and ‘suicides’ that have for so long been a fixture of the hijacked by fascists American political system. The dead giveaway on the importance of Palfrey and the threat that she represents is that ordinarily such an incident would be flogged to death 24/7 on the corporate media machine, given the sexual sleaze factor and the celebrity allure. Well, that insipid, blathering Nancy Grace spent about ten or fifteen minutes on it on Thursday and was then on to something involving actor Rob Lowe; I tuned in again last night and she was talking about some kidnapped or murdered pregnant teenager, you know, the same kind of local news that is whipped up and turned into a national crisis.
Palfrey was really big trouble for a lot of folks with serious clout. The cover story of her "suicide" is, in my opinion, just more of the same pablum that is always spoon-fed to the brainwashed masses. I live in the same county where Palfrey’s body was found. After being front page news in the major area newspaper on Friday, the next day’s follow-up story was very small, below the fold in the local and state section. It was not about Palfrey but was dismissive of so-called ‘conspiracy theorists’ who found the ‘suicide’ to be as suspicious as I do. It has not been covered in depth by any of the major websites to my knowledge--you know, the same ones that gave us all of that coverage of the Natalee Holloway disappearance, Anna Nicole Smith’s O.D., the amazing adventures of Laci Peterson and the fetus and the great in-depth coverage of the sex offender or pederast of the week,
All this coverage was in lieu of let's say, the crimes of the Bushreich, the war, real economic news absent the numbers massaging to obfuscate and obscure the real picture and the accompanying dismantling of America by the Wall Street looters as the oligarchy locks in the gains and offshores the rest of the country.
In Palfrey's case, EVERY piece that I saw in the MSM accepted and sold at face value that this was a suicide. This, even though the woman's prostitution operation was connected to the Washington corporate establishment at the highest levels, and despite the fact that she had given interviews on radio programs that declared she was NOT going to commit suicide.
The one story that I did see in the Orlando Sentinel had this little tidbit that wasn’t picked up anywhere else but should have been for a very obvious reason:On Monday, Palfrey arrived at her condominium at Park Lake Towers, where she often stayed on trips to visit her mother, Strizack said. She had owned the Orlando home since 1996, but it was up for sale.
Palfrey was a pleasant, meticulous person, Strizack recalled. She treasured her privacy so much that she once sued the condominium association because it kept a key to her unit.
She did not draw attention to herself, but when she talked to you, she was clearly well-organized and in control, he said.
On Monday, Palfrey seemed no different. She carried clothing, briefcases and suitcases down the stairs from her second-floor apartment to a rented car in the parking lot, stopping to chat as usual.
She told Strizack she was taking her property to her mother's home in preparation for prison. Contrary to the U.S. Attorney's Office estimate, she told the condo manager she thought she might spend six or seven years behind bars.
On one trip down the stairs, she lugged a 2-foot-wide box she suggested carried materials related to her infamous court case.
"This is my evidence," she told Strizack before carrying it out the door (emphasis mine).
I personally find it suspicious that the Madam was found swinging from a rope shortly after making a comment like that. But Florida being what it is, which is the electile dysfunctional "member" of America, a sweltering cesspool of crime, corruption, black ops and depravity where elections go to be stolen, there is no chance in hell that any legitimate investigational work will be done into Palfrey’s death. Not with Jeb Bush’s people still dug in like ticks in the state bureaucracy and with sitting Governor Charlie Crist rumored to be on the list as John McCain’s running mate.
Regarding the client list, Republican diaper baby David Vitter was the one main name to come out, but dark rumors abounded that heavy hitters like one Richard B. Cheney may have at one time used the service while in the employ of Halliburton. Now, we’ll never know will we?
Palfrey is just the latest but there have been many others. Here are just a few of the others whose deaths were marvelously serendipitous for the prevailing status quo that I personally find to be very interesting:
Danny Casolaro: Was working on a book about a far-reaching global criminal syndicate with roots in the U.S. government that he had called The Octopus that tied together elements of the Reagan-Bush administration, an old boy CIA network, the theft of the legendary PROMIS software, international gangsters, BCCI figures and government contractors. He was found dead in a bathtub with his wrists sliced open in a West Virginia motel after telling friends that he was going to "bring back" the head of the Octopus.
Steve Kangas: Critic of the American extreme right and the Central Intelligence Agency Kangas wrote the marvelous piece The Origins of the Overclass and was rumored to be working on a book on CIA covert operations when he was shot dead in get this – the home of Hillary Rodham-Clinton buddy Richard Mellon Scaife.
Gary Caradori: During the Franklin Coverup involving allegations of child prostitution against Republican officials including rising GOP star Lawrence King and leading up to the White House itself investigator Caradori along with his young son perished in yet another of those small plane crashes that seem to occur with great frequency when the occupants are a threat to the establishment
