Smelling Senator Bacchus

I'm reading this article at Scared Monkeys and I can't help but smell Congressman Spencer Bacchus, I don't know why. He had that I just shit my pants look that Anita Van der sloot had in the aftermath of her son's savagery.

That gray face.

The article connects the dots between Oduber and Abramoff, probably because it's an Aruban newspaper report. (Diario)

But how far-fetched would it be if the names Tacopina and Bacchus and Posner were in that article?

All Americans.

From today’s Diario, A base di pago di 500 mil Florin PRUEBA CON SENADOR MERICANO TA ELOGIA NEL ODUBER

Things that make you go hmmm …

Reading through this mornings Diario it came as a peculiar sight to see the name of Jack Abramoff and Aruban Prime Minister Nelson Oduber referenced in the same news article. These days no one wants their name in the same sentence let alone news story as Abramoff. We all know the name Jack Abramoff for the many public corruption cases he has been involved in. On January 3, 2006 disgraced uber power lobbyist Abramoff plead guilty to 3 counts in a corruption probe.

Jack Abramoff, the once-powerful lobbyist at the center of a wide-ranging public corruption investigation, pleaded guilty yesterday to fraud, tax evasion and conspiracy to bribe public officials in a deal that requires him to provide evidence about members of Congress.

The following day, on January 4, he plead guilty to two criminal felony counts in a separate federal court, in Miami, related to his fraudulent dealings with SunCruz Casinos.

A question comes to mind, among many. Why would PM Nelson Oduber need a good word put in for him to American Congressman? To look through the record of Jack Abramoff is like a who’s who of scandal and corruption. Anything this guy touched was suspect. So why did Oduber feel the need to associate with Abramoff? Aruba has been in the eye of the storm with Americans since May 29, 2005 and their PM, according to the Diario article, is doing business with one of the most scandal ridden lobbyists ever. A lobbyist with so many “dark side” connections like Abramoff would be about the last person that one would want to be connected to these days. However, it appears that PM Oduber according to Diario paid Abramoff for his services.

A summary of the Diario article of Abramoff and Oduber is as follows:

What’s involved is that Nelson Oduber, the Prime Minister of Aruba, paid Abramoff over 250 thousand dollars to put in a good word for him in the Congressional records. Oduber’s name was clearly mentioned with regards to that transaction. Since Abramaoff kept himself busy with lobbying work and found himself accused of having committed fraud, corruption and conspiracy, which he admitted to the district attorneys, and is now cooperating in the penal investigation that is going on in the U.S. Since he did the same kind of lobby work for Nelson Oduber with the same senator (Conrad Burns), for the price of 250.000 dollars, the article places emphasis on the fact that Oduber’s name is being mentioned in the sordid Abramoff affair in the U.S.

The paper is asking from where Nelson Oduber obtained the funds to beef himself up in the U.S.? And why was Aruban undeclared money used to pay off a corrupt person in the U.S. to speak well of the Prime Minister. The paper also asks how come Holland can tolerate for a partner of the Kingdom to pull out money from the national budget to invest in acts of bribery.

Then the paper goes on to quote what was written about Nelson Oduber in the Congressional records, and to point out that for this small island it is a very serious matter when the Prime Minister gets himself involved, directly or indirectly, in acts of corruption and bribery just to have some good words about him placed in the records.

Dutch Scum: The Murdering Van der sloots

Did the Criminals Use Cleaning Fluid on Natalee Holloway?



Gammabutyrolactone (GBL)

A commonly found GHB precursor is gammabutyrolactone (GBL), also known as blue nitro, gamma-G, renewtrient, reviverent. GBL is an organic solvent used for cleaning circuit boards, stripping paint, or flavoring soy products. It acts like GHB but has a slower onset and a longer duration. Adverse effects include respiratory depression and cardiac dysrhythmia. It is metabolized in the liver into GHB but can also be made into GHB using home kits. .

Prior to forensic testing being conducted at the NFI laboratory in the Netherlands and the FBI laboratory in Quantico, Virginia, the Aruban Prime Minister and FBI confirmed that blood had been detected in Deepak Kalpoe's vehicle. The Aruban Prime Minister stated this finding publicly while the FBI informed Beth and Jug Twitty. It can be assumed that this confirmation was based on a Luminol test performed in Aruba.

However, such testing can provide a false DNA finding when there is the presence of certain ingredients in some cleaning fluids. The NFI and the FBI laboratories both concluded in their forensic testing of the fabric samples taken from DeepakŒs vehicle that cleaning fluid was present - not human DNA.

There appears to be a general consensus that the cleaning fluid identified through forensic testing by the NFI and the FBI, in all probability, resulted from Deepak cleaning his vehicle the morning that Natalee Holloway went missing - an incidence observed by a neighbour of the Kalpoes. Jug Twitty claims it could have resulted from ten days of cleaning.

However, could this „cleaning fluid‰ have been the common alternative date rape drug, gammabutyrolactone (GBL)? GBL is an organic solvent that is used for cleaning circuit boards and stripping paint.

The revealed witness/suspect statements of Joran, Deepak and Satish disclose that drinks were carried from Carlos 'N Charlies to Deepak's vehicle on the morning of May 30, 2005. Could one of the drinks containing GBL have been spilled/splattered - possibly during a scuffle? Could the GBL have been spilled/splattered while being mixed into a drink?

As GBL is a strong solvent used for cleaning circuit boards and stripping paint, it can be assumed that Deepak did not use this particular product to clean the fabric of his precious vehicle.

The report of the orginal Aruban tests as well as the FBI and NFI reports regarding findings pertaining to the samples of fabric taken from Deepak Kalpoe's vehicle should comprise part of the Natalee Holloway case file. Inquiring mind want to know if the „cleaning fluid‰ findings were determined to be gammabutyrolactone (GBL).

Natalee and her family deserve justice, and we will not let up until they have it.

Lowlife Dutch: The Van der sloots


Does the Dutch aristocracy in Aruba protect their own from criminal prosecution as a matter of routine? Or is the Natalee Holloway case an exception? It is apparent Joran Van Der Sloot and his father received preferential treatment from the very beginning of the investigation and are still being afforded special status to this day.

It is a well-known fact that the Lead Investigator assigned to the case, Jan Van der Straten, is a close friend of Joran‚s father, Paulus Van Der Sloot. Minister of Justice Rudy Croes reported many suspicious telephone calls between Jan Van der Straten and Paulus Van Der Sloot in the very early stages of the investigation.

Jan Van der Straten knew by the first day of Natalee‚s reported disappearance that the three main suspects last seen with the teen, Joran Van Der Sloot and Deepak and Satish Kalpoe, had lied to police about dropping Natalee off at the Holiday Inn. A review of the hotel security tapes by Natalee‚s mother revealed that fact. Yet Prosecutor Karin Janssen failed to arrest the three suspects and search their homes, moves she was afforded under Dutch law, as the world witnessed with the arrest of the two innocent, framed security guards. No such arrests were made for 10 more days, and then only the Kalpoe residence was searched ˆ while the van der Sloot apartment wasn‚t ordered to be searched for another six days.

Dutch law also states that lying as a witness is a punishable crime, and yet no such charges have ever been brought against these criminals.

Let us not forget that Paulus Van Der Sloot was a judge-in-training at the time his son was the last person seen with Natalee Holloway. It has recently come to light that a Dutch Judge, Jacob Robert Wit, and a high-ranking justice official, Ben (Voc)King were at the Van Der Sloot home the day Aruban authorities arrived to search the Van Der Sloot property. Although the original search warrant was granted for a full search of all the buildings and grounds, Judge Wit changed the order on the spot to limit the search to only Joran‚s small apartment.

Those are just some examples of Joran Van der Sloot being given preferential treatment by the high-ranking officials of Aruba‚s Justice Department and Police department. The interrogation of the suspects was, at best, a softball approach with no follow-up for answers to what is a very puzzling series of lies and contradictions. In some of the interrogations the interviewers were forced to have cameras present which may have been a tactic to limit their effectiveness. Such videotaping of interrogations is not common practice in Aruba, but Joran van der Sloot was afforded this privilege. Who ordered this done?

Listed below are many instances of preferential treatment given to prime suspect Joran Van Der Sloot during the investigation of the Natalee Holloway case:


Joran Van der Sloot was not arrested for 10 days despite the fact police and justice department officials knew he and the Kalpoe brothers lied about dropping her off at the Holiday Inn.

Prosecutor Karin Janssen and Lead Investigator Jan Van Der Straten knew within 24 hours that the three suspects had lied to them about dropping Natalee off at the Holiday Inn but chose not to treat them as suspects. Jan Van der Straten, according to Paulus Van Der Sloot, is a "close friend", a blatant conflict of interest by any stretch of the imagination.


Instead of arresting Joran and the Kalpoe brothers, the Prosecutor and Aruban police arrested two black security guards based on the lie the three suspects had told. The arrest of the two guards was executed with full knowledge the suspects had lied.

By arresting the two black guards they allowed Joran Van der Sloot and the Kalpoe`s five more days to destroy evidence and collaborate on their stories.


Dutch Judge Jacob "Bob" Wit was present at the Van Der Sloot home on June 16th for the specific purpose of denying a search of the Van Der Sloot main residence and grounds when in fact the original warrant called for a full search. A full search was denied by a Dutch Judge again when Paulus Van Der Sloot was arrested on June 23rd.

Paulus Van Der Sloot was a judge in training in the Dutch judicial system and no doubt had many friends who were judges in the system. Any judge who wanted to appear un-biased would have allowed the full property to be searched but Judge Bob Witt limited searching to only Joran's small apartment. It should also be noted that the search of the two black security guards' homes included the entire premises.


Paulus Van Der Sloot was allowed to be present when the Aruban police took Joran's first witness statement and was allowed to edit Joran's statement before it was entered into the public record. That statement is still missing.

Furthermore it was his close friend and Lead Investigator Jan van der Straten who was present for the statement and allowed Paulus Van Der Sloot to edit his son's statement.


Paulus Van Der Sloot was allowed to read the police records of the investigation by using his access to the Justice department files, allowing him to know exactly what the police and Prosecutor were doing in the case. The Prosecutor should have immediately blocked such access but chose not to.


Many of Joran Van Der Sloot‚s statements were taken by officer Dennis Jacobs, a detective who showed no interest in solving the case as witnessed by his apathy toward Dave Holloway during their first meeting. Jacob's first comments to Dave Holloway on June 1st were, "Why would you want to do a search" and "Just go down to Carlos & Charlie's and have a beer, she'll show up."

It should be noted that Dennis Jacobs was a narcotics detective, not a homicide detective, and his choice to conduct interrogation is highly suspect. Jacob's apathy toward solving the case shows clearly in the "softball" manner in which his interviews with Joran were conducted and the lack of follow-up questions.


Judge Smid had originally ruled that Joran should be held another 30 days in detention but faxed in a reversal of his decision immediately after leaving the island and returning to the island of Curacao. Three weeks later a panel of Dutch judges ruled that Joran and the Kalpoe brothers would never have to give further testimony on the case unless it was on a "voluntary" basis despite the fact that the three suspects were telling conflicting stories.

Natalee and her family deserve justice, and we will not let up until they have it.

Aruba Predators

Aruba’s Predators

Joran Van Der Sloot's own actions show his modus operandi for manipulating his victims by assuming the role of tourist himself. Deepak and Satish Kalpoe tell us how they've done this with tourist girls before. What exactly have they done 20 times with nothing going wrong before Natalee?

Considering the responses Satish and Deepak gave to authorities about prior activities with tourist girls - why was Joran never asked these same questions by his "interrogator"?

A frightening thought is wondering just how many victims these criminals have violated with this ruse? Using Joran as the front man, posing as a tourist from St Leo or Michigan University (or from Holland, as in Natalee's case)- coincidentally staying at their target's hotel, while the others wait for him to play out his role convincingly, and effectively snare their victim.

Just how many other unsuspecting and drugged US teens stepped into a silver Honda Civic thinking it was a taxi? 20 of them?,2933,186707,00.html

Joran Van Der Sloot: “It was a normal thing for us to do, you know, go to our friends, go to the beach, talk to American tourists, you know, then go out with them and have a good time and, you know, nothing — nothing ever bad has ever happened. I mean it's happened probably 20, 20 times nothing has ever gone wrong.”

Greta Van Susteren: Do you remember any conversation at all you had with him, like even if it was like' about chips, or anything at all?
Ruth McVey: Only that he said that he was 19 and played soccer at a school in Holland. Greta Van Susteren: So he didn't say that he was in high school?
Student: No

It wasn't the first time that I had girls in my car that were on vacation and dropped them off at hotels (DK- 06/09/05)

To your question whether or not we pick up girls when we go for example to "Carlos & Charlies", I can state the following. Yes, we from time to time pick up girls there. ( DK-6/10)

To your question whether these are local girls or tourists, I can state the following. They are tourists. (DK-6/10)

To your question as to who is the one who makes the first move towards the girls we are going to pick up, I can state the following. It usually is Joran or another friend with the name Freddy Zedan. ( DK-6/10)

To your question as to where we take the girls we pick up, I can state the following. Sometimes the girls stay at "Carlos & Charlies" or sometimes we take them to their hotel. ( DK-6/10)

To your question whether sexual intercourse has happened, I can state the following. Yes, it has happened.(DK-6/10)

To your question whether it ever happened that all of us, so in one room, had sexual intercourse, I can state the following. It has happened. ( DK-6/10)

This is not the first time that we have dropped young American girls off at their hotel. Generally after closing time of Carlos & C harlies, we drop young American girl at their hotels. (SK - 6/24)

To you question as to why Deepak and Satish don't pick up girls with their nice car, I answer you that I do not know why. You have to ask them. I have never seen Deepak or Satish in the company of a girl. I have never seen Deepak dance but I once saw Satish dance with "Carmen JACCOPUCHI". (JVDS-6/10)

Natalee and her family deserve justice, and we will not let up until they have it.
