Jorge Pesquera, President & CEO of the Aruba Hotel and Tourism Association to be Hired by Palm Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau, Part I

 

Palm Beach County, FL thinks its OK not to provide answers for families when it comes Disgraceto missing persons and crimes committed. That is the message they are sending to the public. Why would anyone want to visit a place with their hard earned money where they embrace and reward a person for helping to spin a crime?

Joseph Pesquera, the president and CEO of the AHATA is reported to to be hired by the Palm Beach, FL Convention and Visitors Bureau. This is just another example of tourism at all cost and the hell with victims rights. No one would even know who Joseph Pesquera was if it were not for the unfortunate story of 18 year old Alabama teenager missing in Aruba. And for that, Joseph Pesquera is praised and rewarded with his efforts in the case of missing and presumed dead Natalee Holloway.

EARTH TO PALM BEACH COUNTY … This is the face of Aruban Tourism. Is this what you want in your county as well?

Aruba 3 suspects

(Palm Beach: Is this what you want for the face of your tourism?)

Bureau officials point to Pesquera’s 30 years of experience in the travel and tourism industry. They also said they were impressed with how he handled himself during a crisis that played out in the national media. (REALLY, may want to read?)

Pesquera was head of Aruba’s tourism agency in 2005 when American citizen Natalee Holloway disappeared while on a graduation trip there. On his résumé, he takes credit for playing “the key role in the establishment of the strategic communications task force, which worked behind the scenes to minimize the impact of the Holloway story and effectively stopped calls for boycott by some U.S. elected officials.” (Palm Beach Post)

Why would anyone hire anyone this controversial for a face of tourism position? Hey Palm Beach, what planet do you people live on and what are you smoking? How he handled the crisis? Aruba was swarmed on by the media and they lost control of the story from the outset. As for the Strategic Communications Task Farce, that went away a long time ago as it was branded useless. The web site ArubaTruth could not even handle the onslaught from on line entities like Scared Monkeys continually asking questions and demanding answers.

Palm Beach, you are being snowed. Joseph Pesquera did nothing to stop any such boycott against Aruba. To this day the boycott against Aruba goes forth as an individuals choice not to go to an island where they care little if something happens to a tourist. Instead they use cronyism and cover up as their method of choice.

Palm Beach County, you should be ashamed of yourself. rewarding an individual for helping in covering up and obstructing an investigation against one of your own. So is it safe to presume now that if a person goes missing in Palm Beach County, FL that you will arrest the first two black people you see, charge them with the crime and then stone wall the investigation to protect your own?

YOU ARE A DISGRACE! Let them know what you think.

Hey Palm Beach, John Mark Karr is in Georgia, the next state over without a job. With your rationalization of hiring practicing I am sure you can find a position for him in the Child Welfare Services department. After all, he skating on a murder/rape charge even though he tried his hardest to profess his guilt.

      And while Mr. Pesquera was working so hard to “minimize” HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS of an AMERICAN CITIZEN, there stood a brutally victimized courageous loving family, refusing to be forced off the island without their baby and her truth!

      If you don’t have a newfound appreciation for all those who continue to work for Natalee’s human rights, her family’s human rights ..- FBI, investigators, lawyers working for the Twitty-Holloway family, THE FAMILY MEMBERS who continue to seek Natalee’s truth, and all the wonderful people who continue to support them through this BARBARIC SUFFERING – …then does the hiring of Mr. Pesquera, here in the USA, not cry out for Floridians to wake up, and SEE what lies ahead for their own daughters, where the treadmill of depravity that CONDONES MURDER, KIDNAPPING, GANG RAPES AND HEAVY BATTERY OF CHILDREN, IN THE PERPETUATION OF MYTHS AND LIES ABOUT “HAPPY” AND “TOURISM”.

      It’s good to note just exactly what it is that Mr. Pesquera values and takes credit for.

      And this is what BUSINESS LEADERS IN FLORIDA, WANT AND VALUE? !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I’m shocked that businesses in Florida, that would pride themselves on integrity, would want to have anything to do with AHATA from Aruba – here in the USA – after all that has been inflicted upon Natalee and her beautiful family.

    2. Pearl on July 19th, 2007 9:49 am

      END THE TREADMILL OF DEPRAVITY!

      END THE CYCLE OF HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS BEING INFLICTED UPON NATALEE AND UPON HER FAMILY!

      END THE TORTURE, AND TORMENT OF NATALEE HOLLOWAY AND HER FAMILY!

      LET THE TREADMILL OF DEPRAVITY END NOW!

      FLORIDA: ATTRACT PEOPLE TO ADMINISTRATIVE POSTS IN TOURISM WHO STAND UP FOR THE HUMAN RIGHTS OF TOURISTS!

      SHOULD THE RIGHT TO “COME HOME” BE PART OF THE “TOURIST PACKAGE”, MR. PESQUERA?

    3. minnesota dad on July 19th, 2007 10:00 am

      That’s it….I am boycotting Palm Beach County.

      Looks like I am going back to Mexico….as corrupt as their government is, the people still understand the importance of taking care of tourists.

      Sorry Palm Beach….and I was just about to cash in a couple of frequent flyers to visit you.

      I perceive that this move could only mean one of two things:

      • Pesquera’s contract was not renewed, because his Meet Aruba program was a flop.

      • Pesquera knows that with Aruba’s present situation, the possibilities of palpable success are deam for him, so it’s time to pick up and leave.

      Either way, he failed.

    5. dennisintn on July 19th, 2007 10:09 am

      well, i guess we’ll know today what kind of support and truthfulness we can expect out of palm beach’s political and tourism authorities. absolutely disgusting to even think about this.

      Tourism declining
      Aruba still seen in bad light

      Sounds like possible tourists to Palm Beach County need to be warned exactly where Palm Beach’s priorities lay.

      Well, it may sound like a joke….but I will boycott Florida oranges. They are over priced anyway. As for Florida tourism on my family’s consideration list for Winter 2007….erased. Thats a miniscule contribution, but in my mind, I’ve now registered MY protest.

      The beauty is whether anyone one knows or not…..I know. I have choices.

    10. Richard on July 19th, 2007 11:18 am

      Given that so many Arubans seem to flock to Florida (even Joran van der Sloot and the Kalpoes were going to honor that state with their presence, as I recall, and Paulus of the Ditch did go there shortly after Natalee vanished) …

      … and given the reputed leading role of the orange juice state in Caribbean drug trafficking …

      … is it too much to suspect something else is going on here? Like some kind of business ties, or whatever?

      Nothing is too weird to believe anymore.

      I posted my letter to these idiots on an earlier thread; I will soon be writing to Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.

    11. Richard on July 19th, 2007 11:21 am

      Remember, he’s not being praised for his efforts on behalf of Natalee.

      He’s being praised by this Florida county for his (allegedly effective) role in “handling” the media “crisis.”

      How wonderful! Maybe some of us think it’s a disgrace that someone is being rewarded for helping with a cover-up of a crime against an American citizen.

      Guess that doesn’t matter down there.

      Maybe there’s a reason so many Arubans go to Florida (no offense intended to our Floridian readers) ….

    12. mediaman on July 19th, 2007 12:08 pm

      Jorge was a powerful force in efforts to get the prosecutors office to be forthcoming. He also fought to have the investigation continue, when others wanted it halted.
      In addition,he was an advocate of the family and made certain they had everything they needed on the island.
      To damn him , for what others did or did not do, is just wrong.

      mediaman

    13. Janet on July 19th, 2007 12:09 pm

      It is my contention that the ATA and AHATA … very early in the Natalee Holloway investigation … strategically placed posters on internet forums and hired public relations spokespersons for the sole purpose of erecting smokescreens to obscure the truth regarding the involvement of Joran and Paulus van der Sloot in the events encompassing that fateful morning when an eighteen year old American citizen went missing. I also contend Jorge Pesquera was an adherence to that agenda.

      JUSTICE FOR NATALEE :-)

    17. Richard on July 19th, 2007 12:41 pm

      Mediaman (#12) would have us understand the following of Pesquera:

      “he was an advocate of the family and made certain they had everything they needed on the island”

      Hmmm … can anyone think of something (someone) the family wanted on the island and didn’t get?

      This is an absolute ball of fluff, and I’m sure Mediaman knows it as well as the rest of us do. From day one, the Arubans were spreading lies about all the “freebies” that the Holloway Twittys were getting.

      Dave Holloway offered to show his credit card bills to anyone interested. All that Aruba gave them, after some initial sympathy from some people, was scorn and antagonism.

      From now on, I guess, we’ll be having trolls from West Palm Beach on here as well as the regular low-lifes from Aruba.

    18. WhoRU on July 19th, 2007 12:42 pm

      Perhaps all the attempts to educate Palm Beach about their candidate were in vain?

      Perhaps Mr Stuber did not pass on all the letters of concern to them?

      Or perhaps it was all ignored?

      I cannot imagine that city officials would want to suffer through the results of yet another poorly researched candidate for their Tourism Board.

      Perhaps it’s time to contact someone higher up that this Board?

      They didn’t get an answer, other than that appropriate financial controls were not followed.”

      “The only background check on Duffer before she was hired was a reference from the bureau’s auditing firm, Davis said. No credit or criminal background checks were done, he said.”

    19. Richard on July 19th, 2007 12:43 pm

      To make it clear, the issue here is that an American official group … concerned with TOURISM, of all things … should hire someone who was associated with the Aruban government, which covered up a crime against an American citizen and continues to do so.

      And that Pesquera’s contribution to this cover-up is cited as an accomplishment that makes him worth hiring.

    20. Susan on July 19th, 2007 12:44 pm

      I contend that Jorge Pesquera has to have connections. Inquiring mind want to know why Palm Beach Florida would consider hiring a former Aruba Hotel and Tourism Association president who concedes that there was steady decline in the Aruba tourism rate in the past two years under his watch.

    22. dennisintn on July 19th, 2007 1:06 pm

      i suppose mediaman is going to tell us next about how hard pesquerez spoke out in natalee’s favor and tried to halt ahata and ata from hiring the natalee and beth bashers who have tried their damndest to accuse natalee and beth of things they would never have dreamed of doing. just to blame the victim and her family for the crimes and failures of arubans.

      How was it that Aruba was able to participate in a summit gathering, June 5 – 7th 2005, held in Florida, where among other things, HUMAN RIGHTS were the topic of discussion, while Natalee Holloway’s human rights were being violated in every conceivable manner that one can think of – and CONTINUE to be violated in every conceivable way one can think of?

      Could this suggest other business transactions and dealings between Aruba, and Florida that allowed Aruba entry into the summit gathering held here, on US soil, while Aruban officials lied to USA heads of state on US SOIL, concerning the “progress” being made in the Natalee Holloway NON-investigation?

      What were the connective links between the Organization of American States summit, and Aruba’s attendance at that summit, held in Florida, June 5- 7th, 2005?

      Could any of these partnerships be suggestive of major conflicts of interest when it came to PLANNING STRATEGIES TO ADDRESS THE HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS EXECUTED UPON NATALEE HOLLOWAY and Aruba’s claims that “PROGRESS” was being made?

      Caribbean Association of Industry and Commerce
      Caribbean Conservation Association
      Caribbean Development Bank
      Caribbean Hotel Association
      Caribbean Latin American Action
      Caribbean Tourism Organization

      Does Aruba have business dealings and associations with these entities?

      ARUBA! Where is your sense of human decency and integrity?

      WHERE IS YOUR SENSE OF SORROW AND COMPASSION FOR THE SUFFERINGS OF BETH AND DAVE, PARENTS OF NATALEE HOLLOWAY, WHO WAS A TOURIST TO YOUR COUNTRY?

      Surely there must be people of integrity who care about this child, and who live in Aruba!

      Aruba! What is being done to release Natalee from the depravity inflicted upon her – as a TOURIST TO YOUR NATION?

      WHAT IS BEING DONE TO RELEASE NATALEE FROM:

      “NO CORPSE, NO CASE” , “CONTAINMENT WITH THE DEAD” ?

      Find your sense of human rights, and civilized conduct, Aruba!

      SEND THIS PRECIOUS CHILD BACK TO HER LOVING FAMILY!

      CONTAIN THE MURDERERS, NOT THE VICTIM!

      Where are the standards of honorable governance, Aruba?

      Where are the standards of CIVILIZED conduct for a society?

      Where are the standards in THIS CHILD’S STORY OF INHUMANE TREATMENT, BRUTALLY INFLICTED SUFFERING, AND VIOLATIONS OF HER HUMAN RIGHTS AND THE RIGHTS OF HER FAMILY – regarding,
      all civilized nations agreement of standards by which a CIVILZIED SOCIETY IS EXPECTED TO OPERATE:

      Where are the standards concerning disclosure?
      Where are the standards of transparency?
      WHere are the standards of public accountability?
      Where are the standards that address training, rules based behaviors, inclusion, participation, results based on management?

      WHERE ARE THE STANDARDS OF JUSTICE THAT WARRANT ARUBA BE SCRUTINIZED REGARDING ALL VIOLATIONS OF SIMPLE STANDARDS OF EXCELLENCE EXPECTED OF ANY CIVIL SOCIETY?

      JUSTICE FOR NATALEE!
      JUSTICE FOR HER FAMILY!

      End this savagery, Aruba!

      Begin by following simple standards of transparency that cry out for justice in this precious child’s name!

      END THIS DEPRAVITY NOW, ARUBA!

      RELEASE NATALEE FROM THE DEPRAVITY OF “CONTAINMENT” AND HOLD ACCOUNTABLE THOSE MONSTERS WHO VIOLATED THIS CHILD IN EVERY CONCEIVABLE WAY ONE CAN IMAGINE!

      Justice for Natalee Holloway!

    27. Pearl on July 19th, 2007 1:53 pm

      Janet ( 21), I do not know.

      But if he is, let’s at least HOPE that Mr. Pesquera’s coming to the USA is reflective of a desire to SHARE with the FBI, what HE KNOWS concerning Aruba’s “handling” of the Natalee Holloway family’s suffering and denial to them of any information concerning their child, and anything else he may know regarding the horrible criminal acts of cover up, obstructions of justice and violations of Natalee’s human rights!

      We do not know why he is coming here.
      Maybe…. he wants to assist.

      Questions need to be raised regarding WHAT Aruba’s affiliations are to attend summits that address amidst other topics: HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS, while there was this precious child, Natalee Holloway, and her entire family, being DENIED EVERY ANSWER TO NATALEE’S TRUTH THAT THEY ARE ENTITLED TO BY VIRTURE OF THEIR HUMAN RIGHTS!

      Someone from Aruba with a CONSCIENCE: PLEASE STEP FORWARD NOW!

      End the suffering and barbaric cruelty inflicted upon this beautiful family, whose only desire is to have their child returned to them, and HER TRUTH TOLD TO THEM.

      HONOR TRUTH THROUGH THE PERSUIT OF JUSTICE, ARUBA!

    28. bleachedblack on July 19th, 2007 1:57 pm

      Do you mean to tell me that Jorge Pesquera is the man Palm Beach County feels can do the best job for them as their tourism leader? Well let’s look at the job he did in Aruba over his 2.5 years there.

      1) Following the disappearacne of American student Natalee Holloway Jorge was at the helm during government cover-up and
      Arubicide in the media.

      2) Subsequent decline in tourism

      3) including fewer ports of call for ships in Aruba

      4) Increased violence/crime in Aruba

      5) Increased violence/crime against tourists

      6) Drug traffic continues to flourish. Many hotels/casinos
      participate in money laundering activities

      7) Increased hotel taxes

      8) Aruba beaches no longer listed among top 10 in AOL Travel.

      I am Totally disappointed, and deeply disgusted.
      Pesquera couldn’t handle aruba, how does Palm Beach Co. imagine, or hope he can work for the betterment of this Florida Co.?
      How long do you think he will keep his job in Florida? But then again Palm Beach Co must not expect too much. If you think about all the really bad things that go on in the State of Florida, it’s my opinion to stay away, and stay safe. Especially from child predators that seem to be aplenty in the funshine state.

    34. Richard on July 19th, 2007 3:08 pm

      Thanks for the info and for getting it up there, Vicki, Susan, Pearl and everyone else.

      Come on, everyone who posts here … this is something we can do and SHOULD do.

      It’s spitting in the face of the American people, I think.

      If we can’t work to stop this travesty in our country, what right do we have to express anger at Aruba?

    35. kate on July 19th, 2007 3:20 pm

      How can Palm Beach afford to be tied to Aruba in any way? Do they have any idea what this connection might mean to them economically? This is the front door entrance for Aruba’s organized crime into Florida. Actually, if it’s already there, it may be just another door, a much more visible one. If so, this is a ballsy move on the part of the individuals involved. Of course, we already knew that these people have gonads. They’re just short on brain matter, but it’s worked for them so far.

    36. Richard on July 19th, 2007 3:31 pm

      One thing to note: I just looked at the Website for the governor of the state of Florida.

      It says that e-mail addresses are items of public record under Florida law.

      So it could be that if you send the governor (or whoever) an e-mail, your address would have to be given up to someone who brought a suit under the Freedom of Information act or something similar.

      I could give a hoot … but the Web site says that if this is a problem for you, send a regular letter or make a phone call instead.

    37. Pearl on July 19th, 2007 4:08 pm

      29, Vicki, you have every right to question, and until ANSWERS are provided to the Twitty-Holloway family, please continue to cry out for Natalee’s right to justice and her family’s RIGHT to her truth, since Aruban corrupt officials have AIDED and ALLOWED these human rights violations of “no corpse, no case” and “containment with the dead”, amidst “HEAVY BATTERY”, and “kidnapping and gang rape and MURDER” – to BE INFLICTED UPON THIS PRECIOUS CHILD, who had NO ONE – absolutely NO ONE by her side, when it came to providing her human kindness, a sense of compassion and human decency, an offer of help, and a willingness to take a stand in PROTECTING HER HUMAN RIGHTS.
      She was violated in every conceivable way you can think of, while POLIS OFFICIALS STOOD BY, KNOWING THIS, AND DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO HOLD ACCOUNTABLE THE VERY GANG OF DEPRAVED MEN WHO RAVAGED THIS POOR, COMPLETELY HELPLESS AND POWERLESS CHILD!

      Paulus’ response to Natalee’s cries for help were: “No corpse, no case.”

      Paulus’ response to Natalee’s TORMENT, and all the torment and cruelty inflicted upon Natalee’s mother, Beth and upon Natalee’s father, Dave – and all their family members: was to INFLICT the depravity of “CONTAINMENT WITH THE DEAD” on ALL of Natalee’s loved ones.

      THAT was Paulus Van der Sloots response to NATALEE’S cries for HELP!

      Guido’s response to Natalee’s cries for help was to inflict what prosecutors believe to be: HEAVY BATTERY upon this innocent, powerless child, GANGED UP UPON BY UNCONSCIENABLE MEN WHOSE LEGACY IS THEIR DEPRAVITY AND PERVERTED INDIFFERENCE TO NATALEE’S CRIES FOR HELP!
      Guido’s next response was to take a hike and head for the Netherlands!

      And JORAN’S RESPONSE TO NATALEE’S CRIES FOR HELP IS TO STATE: “I WOULD HATE HER!” …( IF – IF SHE WERE TO BE EVER FOUND AGAIN.)

      Chilling responses from the most repulsive acts of cruelty that leave shame upon Aruba, until Natalee’s truth is told, her right to justice granted, and NATALEE HERSELF IS FREED FROM THIS DEPRAVITY AND INDIFFERENCE, AND SHE FINALLY COMES HOME!

      Keep standing up for Natalee, Vicky and keep asking the great questions that you and so many others have every single right to ask until this child is set free, her truth is told, her right to justice granted, and she is returned to her loving family, and her own beloved country.

      I have to wonder WHY NOW…why is Pasquera coming to the USA – now? Strange that he’d be heading HERE…indeed.

      There is much for Mr. Pasquera to explain.
      Answers need to be provided to Natlaee’s family.
      This man owes this family – THAT MUCH, given the willingness of tourism officials to participate in summits calling together nations from the Americas, yet – in the face of HUMAN RIGHTS discussions at those very summit meetings, it is painfully clear that there are indeed Aruban tourism officials/ and or members of AHATA, who participated in acts of barbaric cruelty in generating lies, obstructions, and cruelties that were repeatedly inflicted upon Natalee and upon her family. This is nothing to be proud of and is great cause for shame and disgrace!

      I reference the site mentioned by Janet where there appears to be solid questions raised concerning WHAT role AHATA played in promoting obstructions to a TOURIST’S TRUTH and in promoting hardship, suffering and unbearable sorrow upon this tourist’s family members through the spreading of lies, the promoting of FALSE information, while claiming to be concerned with “THE TRUTH” ?

      There are standards of decency and integrity that any business would be expected to operate under.

      Was Mr. Pasquera invovled in this depravity inflicted upon Natalee’s family through acts of non-compliance regarding standards of societal ethics that AHATA would be expected to conduct itself under?

      Were any AHATA members invovled in this charade of an “investigation” that appears to have been intended to persecute the VICTIM, in order to “salvage” what some believed to be left of “Aruba’s image of “happy and safe”?

      It is time for someone with ethics to step forward!
      It is time for civilized societal standards to be made manifest through CONDUCT reflective of the very standards that attendees professed to follow, when attending the Organization of American States Summit in Florida, during June 5 – 7th, 2005 while there in Aruba, Natalee Holloway and her family was being subjected to acts of vicious cruelty, barbaric criminal acts of depravity that encompass multiple counts of HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS!

      WHERE IS THE JUSTICE THAT HONORS THIS CHILD’S HUMAN RIGHTS?

    38. Carpe Noctem on July 19th, 2007 5:01 pm

      Maybe Oreilly will discuss Whore-hey’s

      entire background file when he talks about

      a new twist in the Holloway Case tonight?

      Hey welcome to America, Pasquera… is his

      address listed through FOI? ha haaaaaa!!!! -Bart Simpson

    39. Allan K on July 19th, 2007 5:03 pm

      Looks like Florida will do whatever it takes to make a dollar.
      Has not anybody any morals on this case besides a few posters here? Palm Beach I hope this is a really bad year for tourism for you. Some people will do anything for a damn dollar and to hell with anything of a moralistic value. How low can people be to to not support Natalee’s life taken from her? Is their not one person of influence to not let this case slide out of public view? Shame on the whole Aruba, FBI, politicians to busy calling their college call girls and lining their pockets and plain just don’t care of others,than self.

    40. Pearl on July 19th, 2007 5:05 pm

      #12 – Mediaman: here is the BOTTOM LINE concerning WHAT TO LOOK FOR regarding a CIVILIZED SOCIETY and its professions of adherence to standards of civilized conduct that are intended to UPHOLD HUMAN RIGHTS of society’s members:

      1. A civilized society concerns itself with DISCLOSURE.

      Natalee’s family continues to suffer after now waiting more than TWO YEARS for criminals to be held accountable for their obstructive conduct, their perverted lies and insinuations they made about Natalee and about WHERE THEY LEFT HER, amidst numerous CONFLICTING statements that persits to NOT BE ACCOUNTED FOR – to THIS DAY.

      WHERE ARE ALL THE TORN UP, SHREDDED, DESTROYED LIE-STATEMENTS MADE BY THESE UNSCRUPULOUS MEN WHO TOOK THIS CHILD AWAY FROM HER FAMILY?

      2. A civilized society concerns itself with TRANSPARENCY.

      Despite repeated calls by US officials for INCLUSION of the FBI to INVESTIGATE the kidnapping and all other criminal acts inflicted upon an American citizen, Natlaee Holloway – Aruban officials chose to EXCLUDE the FBI, expel FBI agents to the fringes of the farce that ALE called an “investigation”. And in the midst of this outrageous attempt to portray the ALE as “transparent” by suggesting that the FBI was working “closely with Aruban ALE officials”, it took FBI statements to recitfy the LIES being spun to the media concerning just how MUCH those USA FBI agents were being permitted to “participate” and “work with” ALE officials in “FINDING NATLAEE”!

      3. A civilized society concerns itself with PUBLIC ACCOUNTABILITY!

      Where is the arrests, the evidence that WAS INDEED COLLECTED, the the STATEMENTS and CONFESSIONS that were indeed made by the SUSPECTS, and the investigations into the corrupt manner in which ALE officials FAILED TO PERFORM their duties, while taking purposeful actions to FRAME TWO INNOCENT BLACK MEN?

      WHere is the public accountability for FAILURE TO PERFORM ones duties in the fact that PROSECUTORIAL FILES WERE MISSING IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS NECESSARY FOR JUDGES TO MAKE RULINGS?

      WHERE … is the public accountability for REFUSAL TO INVESTIGATE PAULUS VAN DER SLOOTS involvement in the creation of ALL the HOLIDAY INN LIES, and the IMPLICATIONS OF THIS OUTRAGEOUS PIECE OF EVIDENCE REFERENCED IN THE FORM OF A CONFESSION MADE BY DEEPAK KALPOE?

      WHERE IS THE TRIAL FOR ALL THE LIE-STATEMENTS GIVEN AS “WITNESSES” – pertaining to:

      1. Paulus Van der Sloot
      2. Joran Van der Sloot
      3. Deepak and Satish Kalpoe
      4. Steve Croes
      5. Dompig’s brother in law: Boeti
      6. AND ALL OTHER CO-CONSPIRATORS WHO LIED IN ORDER TO OBSTRUCT NATALEE’S TRUTH, AND DENY HER FAMILY ANY JUSTICE IN FINDING THEIR CHILD AND BRINGING HER HOME!

      WHERE IS THE PUBLIC ACCOUNTABILITY?

      4. A civilized society values: RULES BASED BEHAVIORS

      Karin Janssen exclaimed: “We can’t go in there like cowboys”, when offering her pitiful excuses for why she FAILED TO TAKE ACTION in arresting the VERY MEN, known within 24 hours, to be lying, and therefore warrant CAUSE FOR SUSPICION TO ARREST THEM – which, JANSSEN FAILED TO DO.

      WHERE IS THE ACCOUNTABILITY THAT HOLDS JANSSEN, DOMPIG, JACOBS, AND VAN DER STRAATEN TO “RULES BASED BEHAVIORS” THAT ARUBAN LAWS CRIED OUT FOR CONCERNING THESE HORRIFIC VIOLATIONS OF HUMAN RIGHTS INFLICTED UPON NATALEE AND HER FAMILY?

      Clearly, RULES BASED BEHAVIORS are NOT a value to Aruba, as clear standards of Aruban laws that WARRENTED THE IMMEDIATE ARRESTS OF: paulus, joran, deepak and satish – in lieu of ALL THE LIES and INCONSISTENT STATEMENTS THEY WERE FOUND TO BE MAKING WITHIN 24 hours of Natalee being reported as “missing” – WARRENTED that RULES OF LAW CALLED FOR THEIR ARRESTS! No such actions were taken because RULES BASED BEHAVIORS ARE NOT A VALUE IN ARUBA!

      5. A civil society values: INCLUSION.

      Repeatedly Beth, Dave and their families were EXCLUDED from FACTS OF NATALEE’S TRUTH.

      Repeatedly the FBI was EXCLUDED FROM ALL ASPECTS OF NATALEE”S CASE, THAT COULD POSSIBLY HAVE LED TO ANY SENSE OF CREDIBILITY OF AN HONEST, TRUSTWORTHY INVESTIGATION FOUNDED UPON PRINCIPLES OF INTEGRITY! The reason for this EXCLUSION of the FBI can only mean one thing: THE GOAL WAS NEVER TO INVESTIGATE! THE GOAL WAS NEVER TO FIND NATALEE! THE GOAL WAS TO OBSTRUCT HER TRUTH FROM COMING OUT, TO OBSTRUCT HER FAMILY FROM FINDING HER, TO OBSTRUCT THE FBI FROM TRULY “INVESTIGATING” WHO EXECUTED NATALEE, AND WHO WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL THE VIOLATIONS OF HER HUMAN RIGHTS!!!!

      6. A civil society values PARTICIPATION and RESULTS BASED ON MANAGEMENT!

      Clearly, Jossy Mansur needed to be EXLCUDED from any dialogue in the PARTICIPATION of discussion as to WHAT ARUBA’S RESPONSIBILITIES WERE TO THIS YOUNG, INNOCENT, VICTIMIZED AMERICAN TOURIST. This pattern of exclusion of Jossey from participation in any HONEST, MEANINGFUL DIALOGUE can be seen in the attempts by government officials to BOYCOTT HIS NEWSPAPER, while those same officials had the audacity to suggest that American’s boycotting of travel to Aruba was somehow “unfair” to Arubans – while EXCLUDING NATALEE AND ALL THAT SHE AND HER FAMILY CONTINUE TO SUFFER – AMIDST BLATANT HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS INFLICTED UPON NATALEE, THAT ARUBAN OFFICIALS CONTINUE IN FAILING TO ADDRESS WHILE ATTEMPTING TO BULLY AMERICAN’S FROM PARTICIPATION IN ANY DISCUSSION ABOUT HOW THIS CHILD’S HUMAN RIGHTS WERE VIOLATED THROUGH SUCH DEPRAVITY, CORRUPTION, AND BARBARIC CRUELTY IN ARUBA!

      Clearly, the participation of a FREE PRESS in discussion over a child’s human rights violations is NOT A VALUE in Aruba, as it seems Jossy Mansur continues to be the target for exclusion to PARTICIPATION in the discussion of Natalee’s rights!

      Results based on management would suggest:

      DOMPIG, JACOBS, VAN DER STRAATEN FAILED NATALEE’S RIGHT TO HAVE HER HUMAN RIGHTS RESPECTED.

      JANSSEN FAILED TO PERFORM HER DUTIES, AND MANAGE NATALEE’S CASE SO THAT AT THE VERY LEAST, THE FILES NEEDED TO EXPOSE HER TRAGIC TRUTHS, WOULD FIND THEIR WAY INTO THE HANDS OF JUDGES MAKING RULINGS OVER HER CASE, AND NOT BE SOMEHOW “MISSING” ON THE VERY DAYS IN COURT WHERE JUDGES WERE MAKING IMPORTANT RULINGS.

      RESULTS BY MANAGEMENT: would suggest that Van der STraaten has some accounting to do for ALL THOSE MISSING LIE-STATEMENTS AND CONFESSIONS FILES,TAKEN FROM POLIS RECORDS, WHICH RECORDED NUMEROUS LIE-STATEMENTS AND CONFESSIONS MADE BY LYING PREDATORS WHO WERE DECLARED BY STRAATEN TO BE “WITNESSES”.

      RESULTS BY MANAGEMENT: would suggest that a civil society HOLD ACCOUNTABLE ALL CO-CONSPIRATORS in this travesty of justice, this barbaric cruelty of human rights violations that were AIDED by polis officials, judicial officials and even the PROSECUTORS OFFICE – who allowed TEN DAYS OF RAMPAGES by predators and criminals in order to DESTROY EVIDENCE, AND REHEARSE DEPLORABLE CONTEMPTABLE LIES IN ORDER TO COLLUDE TOGETHER CONCERNING TIME LINES,LIE- STATEMENTS, AND ALL THE OTHER DEPRAVITY INVOLVED IN THEIR CRIMINAL CONDUCT TO OBLITERATE THIS TOURIST-CHILD’S HUMAN RIGHTS!

      Aruba should NOT be permitted to participate in summits to examine the role of CIVILIZED SOCIETIES and benefit from such gatherings, until ARUBA BEGINS TO ACT IN A CIVILIZED MANNER, IN TAKING SERIOUSLY, THE HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS INFLICTED UPON NATALEE HOLLOWAY AND HER FAMILY, AND TAKES STEPS TO ACT WITH INTEGRITY TO HONOR NATALEE’S HUMAN RIGHTS, AND HER RIGHT TO HAVE HER TRUTH TOLD TO HER FAMILY, AND HER JUSTICE PURSUED BY ARUBAN OFFICALS RESPONSIBLE IN UPHOLDING HUMAN RIGHTS FOR EVERYONE, INCLUDING – INNOCENT, VICTIMIZED TOURISTS WHO TRAVEL IN GOOD FAITH TO ARUBA, ONLY TO BE BRUTALIZED, SLAUGHTERED, AND DESECRATED – WITH NO JUSTICE IN SIGHT FOR THE VICTIM’S FAMILY!

      HONOR AND INTEGRITY SHOULD BE PART OF THE “CIVILIZED SOCIETY” PACKAGE, EVEN AS – “THE RIGHT TO COME HOME” SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN THE “TOURISM PACKAGE”.

    41. Maggie on July 19th, 2007 5:09 pm

      I’m guessing the Bill O’Reilly coverage will be about the article from a few weeks ago in Amigoe. It says shocking, but I really don’t know why anyone would be shocked from this group of people Natalee’s family has battled. They’ve never been about truth. They’ve never been about justice.

      As for hiring the guy above, everyone of the spokespeople for AHATA have been caught in one lie after other. Arlene Shippers said Tim Miller was making it up about a missing trap and that Dompig didn’t say that. Her trip to the USA asking to question the MB students, so they could make a plan to re-interrogate the suspects. BIG LIE. In Vanity Fair Dompig is talking about the missing trap.

      Steve Cohen gave a talk last year in the Caribbean and said 2 of the 3 admitted to having sex with Natalee. He also said he expects rape and murder charges to be filed against them soon. He told us that they were going to re-interrogate the 3, they were waiting for Joran to come home on Christmas break.

      On his résumé, he takes credit for playing “the key role in the establishment of the strategic communications task force, which worked behind the scenes to minimize the impact of the Holloway story and effectively stopped calls for boycott by some U.S. elected officials.”

      Minimize the impact? How about paying liars to slander and smear a tourist, who was a victim of a crime? How about paying liars who were sent out to slander and smear a victim’s family? Don’t sugar coat it. Natalee never did nothing to Aruba, Aruba did it to her.

    42. Pearl on July 19th, 2007 5:23 pm

      So beautifully spoken, Maggie and so well said – particularly regarding “the impact”.

      IMPACT ON WHOM?

      The loathesome self-bloated guttony of these liars is simply disgusting, and unbearable.

      It is nothing less than UN-CIVILIZED conduct!

      BARBARIC, CRUEL, HEINOUS, INSIDIOUS….UNCIVILIZED!

      There are no human rights in Aruba, so long as predators govern the island, corrupt officials collude together to OBSTRUCT JUSTICE for innocent, brutalized tourists, and GANG BEHAVIORS of CRIMINAL CONDUCT FEED on DESECRATING and TRAMPLING UPON THE VICTIMIZED TOURIST AND HER FAMILY.

      This is barbaric, savage cruelty and needs to be exposed for WHAT it is.

      Americans need and deserved to be WARNED about the REAL TRUTHS about ARUBA!

    43. joe bear on July 19th, 2007 5:23 pm

    44. Susan on July 19th, 2007 5:34 pm

      You are welcome, Richard :-) I emailed the article to SM in reference to this story about the same time you said you had sent a lettter. I guess the guys and gals in charge have their hands full.

      BOYCOTT ARUBA, HOLLAND AND PALM BEACH, FL!!

      JUSTICE FOR NATALEE :-)

    45. Katablog on July 19th, 2007 6:11 pm

      #12 Mediaman: are you sure you aren’t arlene shipper or Julia RufRo?

      “On his résumé, he takes credit for playing “the key role in the establishment of the strategic communications task force, which worked behind the scenes to minimize the impact of the Holloway story and effectively stopped calls for boycott by some U.S. elected officials.”

      Does that say anything about Pesquera being an advocate for the family of Natalee Holloway? Does that say anything about having compassion and understanding for a family who lost their daughter thanks to three thugs? Does it say a word about helping to track down and prosecute the criminals? Does Pesquera’s claim say a word about helping to return the body of their beloved Natalee to a grieving family?

      Hell no! Pesquera is so inhuman that he takes credit for “minimizing the impact” on the dollars flowing into Aruba. That’s his focus now and that was his focus then. Pretty darn clear to me.

    46. mayan_moons on July 19th, 2007 6:43 pm

      I’m stunned…..HOW can Palm Beach hire this guy? I mean if PB said said we’re hiring him coz he’s all we can afford it would be alittle easier to stomach than to tout his lessening the *IMPACT* on Aruba’s tourism during the Natalee Holloway case as THE reason for hiring him.

    47. IndyDan on July 19th, 2007 6:47 pm

      Well said Maggie as usual.
      I guess I’m wondering what “minimize the impact” means. The beaches are empty, Cruise Ships have cut Aruba out, no longer do high school or colleges go there to celebrate, the only people that go there are the old timeshare folk who have no other choice or the retirees looking for a bargain. I suspect that age group feels rather safe from the young Pimp predators that drug, kidnap and rape American tourists.

    48. mayan_moons on July 19th, 2007 6:48 pm

      I didn’t think ANYTHING could make me smile today after seeing this article

      But

      Whore-Hey Did!

      Thanks Carpe!~

    49. IndyDan on July 19th, 2007 6:53 pm

      Adding to the above – and those that win free vacation give-a-ways underwritten by the Shills like Pesquera.
      Come ‘Dance Aruba’, while you out dancing we’ll ransack your room, drug your daughters and rip you off with car rental scams, we just want your easy money. Please “Come Dance”

    50. brerlee on July 19th, 2007 7:08 pm

      It sounds like the Palm Beach, FL Convention and Visitors Bureau expects to “lose” some tourists soon, or expectgs some tourists will “runaway.”

      Perhaps people in their leadership have sons in a P.I.M.P.S group similar to Joran’s group, and they expect their sons to rape and kill tourists too. So of course they need someone like Joseph Pesquera (the president and CEO of the AHATA).

      It makes sense to me.

      Palm Beach doesn’t sound tourist-friendly to me. Tourists used to only have to worry about sharks in the water, now they have to worry about “human” sharks on land. Perhaps, in the Palm Beach tourist brochures, they should warn female blonde tourists to dye their hair black for self-protection.

      Joseph Pesquera (the CEO of AHATA) and the leadership of the Palm Beach, FL Convention and Visitors Bureau are, perhaps, like peas-in-a-pod?

      When the Palm Beach leadership start scratching itches due to fleas, do you think they are smart enough to know where them fleas came from?

    51. Meee on July 19th, 2007 8:10 pm

      Why did O’Reilly say coming up news on the death of Natalee Holloway?? Or something to that affect

    52. dennisintn on July 19th, 2007 8:17 pm

      the palm beach post announced that pesquera has been offered the job. he has to give l20 days notice on aruba before he can start. i can hardly wait to see the first press release about a 4 yr. old being bitten by a shark. “the kid was acting slutty, and was asking for it. we think he was on drugs he brought with him from home and he deserved it anyway. we have credible witnesses.
      dennisintn

    53. ben on July 19th, 2007 8:31 pm

      oreily geraldo, says they have hi law enforcement officials saying Natalee died of a cocaine overdose, and sloot and kalpos helped dispose of body.un confirmed of course.

    54. ben on July 19th, 2007 8:37 pm

      if she died from a cocaine overdose,you call 911,unless you were raping while she was under the influence.

    55. disgustedmom on July 19th, 2007 8:45 pm

      I don’t know much about Florida, but from what I hear places like Palm Beach are just like Aruba when it comes to what makes their world go ’round. Natch, they would love this guy!

      Not to change the subject, but O’Rielly just had ‘news’ about Natalee. He said although he personally had not confirmed the information, he got it from a highly credible cop source out of Aruba that Natalee died of cardiac arrest from a massive dose of coccain and was dumped at sea by Joran.

      So, first off, where in heck did O’R find a credible cop in Aruba? Isn’t that an oxymoron anyway? But aside from that, that is not new news. It’s an old agenda that has been pushed for a long time…and I say ‘agenda’ because if this darn cops knew this then why is Tim having to go find Natalee?

      Sounds like a refreshed version of van der straaten’s “she’s dead. I’ve seen the evidence” . Very easy to say they KNOW Natalee died of a coccain overdose and then NOT be able to locate her body even though they KNOW she is in the ocean. What is this? Case solved, no evidence but you just have to believe us?

      Why believe that crap? IF they KNOW she’s in the ocean then they should KNOW where and THEY should go get her! I fear this is BS. But we will have to wait (again) and see.

    56. Carpe Noctem on July 19th, 2007 8:50 pm

      LOL Glad to be of service, Mayan! :)

    57. Susan on July 19th, 2007 8:52 pm

      What did everyone think of O’Reilly’s statement tonight in reference to Natalee? No doubt using cocaine can be deadly causing cardiac arrest. He stated the boys disposed of her body in the ocean. Supposedly his source is very reliable. Is there any truth to this or could Bill be caught up in all the Aruban/Dutch spin?

    59. Pearl on July 19th, 2007 9:12 pm

      Has Bill O’Reilly read ANY transcripts concerning Natalee’s case? !!!!!!!!!!

      I’m so disappointed in him! I thought the man knew how to ask a question, but apparantly, not!

      Tonight he reports more Dompig SPIN.

      Bill: do us a favor and READ before “reporting” from any “reliable sources” ( despite your non-confirmed disclaimer!!!)

      Bill, if Natalee’s death was an accident, why did the three thugs LIE to her parents right from the start?
      Why HIDE an ACCIDENT, BILL?

      If Natalee was the victim of a DRUG OVERDOSE, Bill – WHERE DID THE COCAINE COME FROM AND HOW DID IT GET INTO HER BODY?
      Are you suggesting SHE should be blamed now (as Dompig suggested) for ingesting drugs – when this was something repeatedly stated as OUT OF CHARACTER FOR HER.

      Why should anyone believe LIARS, Bill whose pattern of behavior throughout Natalee’s parent’s inquiry, was to LIE repeatedly, in every statement that they made, and if everything was just an “accident”, then WHY LIE about the “drop off”, Bill? Why make up guards, and descriptions, and WHY FRAME TWO INNOCENT BLACK MEN, BILL?

      WHY CHOOSE SOMEONE TO “TAKE THE BLAME”, BILL – if everything was an “ACCIDENT” and there’s NOTHING to be blamed for? Then why FRAME JOHN AND JONES, BILL?

      Why create so many lies about the TIME LINE, Bill?
      Why lie about the PHONE CALLS AND WHEN THEY OCCURED, BILL?
      Why hold a: HOLIDAY INN LIE PARTY?
      Why the need for: “NO CORPSE, NO CASE” if everything was an ‘accident’, Bill?

      Where is your duty to your audience to INVESTIGATE and REPORT THE TRUTH?

      Hey, Bill – we’ve got some VERY RELIABLE SOURCES that say: NATALEE WAS KIDNAPPED, GANG RAPED, VICTIMIZED BY HEAVY BATTERY, AND MURDERED. HER BODY WAS THEN STOLEN FROM HER FAMILY, AND SHE WAS DENIED THE DIGNITY AND DECENCY OF A BURIAL BECAUSE OF WHAT YOU HAVE REPORTED AS BEING AN “ACCIDENT” !!! AT THE VERY LEAST: READ!
      YOU OWE IT TO THIS CHILD, IF YOU ARE GOING TO REPORT ON HER STORY!

      STOP TELLING THE LIARS VERSION, BILL!
      TELL NATALEE’S STORY!
      NATLAEE’S TRUTHS!

      By the way Bill, DID NATALEE “HEAVY BATTERY” HERSELF, BEFORE OR AFTER THE “MASSIVE OVERDOSE OF COCAINE ACCIDENT”?

      Geraldo! WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU READ THE TRANSCRIPTS?

      BY THE WAY, GERALDO, NEXT TIME YOU REFERENCE AN “ACCIDENT”, PERHAPS YOU SHOULD NOT REFER TO IT AS A “HOMICIDE” !!!!

      MAKE UP YOUR MINDS, BOYS!

      What a sad presentation by the two of them!

      HEY, BILL: WHY DID DOMPIG SAY THAT JORAN, DEEPAK AND SATISH WERE ALL “GUILTY AS HELL”?

      About that CONFESSION, BILL: WHY DID JORAN CONFESS TO KILLING NATALEE IF IT WAS ALL JUST “AN ACCIDENT”?

      WHY DID THEY NEED TO ERASE HER BODY, BILL?
      WHY DID PAULUS LIE ABOUT HIS INVOLVEMENT WITH NATALEE, SHORTLY BEFORE SHE WAS REPORTED MISSING, BILL?

      WHAT ABOUT THAT CASINO VIDEO TAPE, FROM MAY 29, BILL?
      DID YOU LOOK AT THAT YET?
      WHY DID PAULUS NEED TO LIE, BILL – about an “accident”!

      It’s outrageous and absurd to even suggest that, Bill.
      And it’s a terrible disservice to Natalee and to her family that you propose “drug overdose” in the absence of any intelligent questions that clearly COUNTER the claims of “accident” that G. Dompig tried to sell when he showed up in the USA to slander this poor child’s GOOD NAME.

      Read the transcripts, Bill.
      Do your homework.
      Natalee and her family at least deserve the media to READ all the transcripts before the media attemps to report ANYTHING about Natalee.

      That much you OWE to this child and to her family.

      Get your facts straight, Bill, and READ the transcripts.

    60. sparrow on July 19th, 2007 9:14 pm

      He sounded confident of his source. No mincing of words. I think he knows something. I also think the sloots and kalpoes have had enough free time.

      #54 Ben – you’re right on the money. It was drugs, NOT coke, it was GHB or roofies that Natalee OD’d on. Given to her by the PIMP squad. Since the spinmeisters know that there’s no way prove it either way, it’s easier to blame it on a girl who was so upstanding in every way that the claim is beyond stupid.

    62. Richard on July 19th, 2007 9:23 pm

      A massive dose of cocaine? Who would be providing this information? Who is this “reliable source”? Who was witness to it, who provided the cocaine, how was the dosage administered (did O’Reilly say whether the source said she took it willingly?), and how many people were there at the time?

      How do they know it wasn’t some other drug?

      If it was cocaine, I’ll bet she was forced to take it … or else was given it without knowing. It can be injected, can’t it?

    63. ben on July 19th, 2007 9:25 pm

      once again the victim is being blamed.They are suggesting she took cocaine willingly,If that were true why did they dispose of the body.

    64. Pearl on July 19th, 2007 9:28 pm

      Yes, Disgustedmom…

      O’Reilly reports: CARDIAC ARREST DUE TO MASSIVE COCAINE OVERDOSE!!!

      Now, WHO did the forensics, to determine CAUSE OF DEATH and that the person being autopsied was actually NATALEE?

      Bill, were Natalee’s parents brought in to I.D. her the way that NO ONE was brought in to I.D. Mickey John as the FAKE, LIE-GUARD reported in multiple statements by all three liars who took Natalee away?

      How, Mr. O’Reilly, could you engage in such baseless, commentary – even when you admitt that it has no CONFIRMATION? Show some respect for this child, will you please, Mr. O’Reilly!

      And wouldn’t a CAUSE of death suggest that Natalee’s BODY was in SOMEONE’s possession, Mr. O’Reilly, and that THIS person DENIED Natalee’s family from RECOVERY OF THEIR CHILD’S BODY? Are you that easy of a push-over, Mr. O’Reilly? Don’t you READ?

      “NATALEE WAS DUMPED AT SEA BY JORAN AND DEEPAK”.
      (This from a ‘reliable source’ who reported these findings to Mr. Bill O’Reilly.)

      Bill, does this mean that we have yet another NEW LIE to add to our two year list of Van der Sloot, Kalpoe lies?

      You mean: NATALEE REALLY WASN”T LEFT “ON THE BEACH” BY JORAN, after “HITTING HER HEAD SWIMMING”, or, ON THE “ROCKS”, or…”OUTSIDE THE CAR” after the BIG DROP OFF LIE?

      Bill, no offense but your “reliable source” is about as reliable as one of Joran’s statements.
      In fact, Bill, I do wonder: WHO GAVE YOU THE INFO?

      DOMPIG and JACOBS?

      I think next time one of your reports comes around, Bill, I surely will NOT be watching.
      How valuable can your reports be when you don’t seem to find the time to READ and to ask questions – that at the very least, cry out for answers if only for justice in Natalee’s name!

      Your source is about as reliable as anything ever said by Paulus and Joran van der Sloot and all their thug pals who think nothing of slandering the child they all victimized.

    65. IndyDan on July 19th, 2007 9:31 pm

      The only Coke Natalee ever took was Diet coke. Give me a break. This is so stupid I can’t believe I’m even commenting on it. Even the ugly-haters have to laugh at this prospect.

      Visitors bureau looks set to hire CEO at top pay

      By DEANA POOLE

      Palm Beach Post Staff Writer

      Thursday, July 19, 2007

      WEST PALM BEACH – Members of the county’s Convention and Visitors Bureau are expected to choose their new leader today and offer a compensation package that rivals the pay of most top county government officials.

      Jorge Pesquera, president and chief operating officer of the Aruba Hotel and Tourism Association, is the top choice of the bureau’s search committee to serve as its CEO/president. The tourism bureau’s full board of directors will decide today whether to formally offer him the job.

      In hopes of luring Pesquera from his well-paying job, the bureau has put together a salary and bonus package that could bring his total pay to about $195,000 in his first year and more than $250,000 by his third.

      In his first year on the job, Pesquera would make more than Deputy County Administrator Verdenia Baker, the county’s second-in-command and the one responsible for overseeing the county’s tourism-related agencies.

      Bureau officials point to Pesquera’s 30 years of experience in the travel and tourism industry. They also said they were impressed with how he handled himself during a crisis that played out in the national media.

      Pesquera was head of Aruba’s tourism agency in 2005 when American citizen Natalee Holloway disappeared while on a graduation trip there. On his résumé, he takes credit for playing “the key role in the establishment of the strategic communications task force, which worked behind the scenes to minimize the impact of the Holloway story and effectively stopped calls for boycott by some U.S. elected officials.”

      Wow looks to me like ES will be finding Natalee and this reliable source may be part of the ppl who knew where Natalee was the whole time. Well here’s my question, if this is such a reliable source and knew this why’d they wait so long?

      Perfuming the pigs again, some one is hot on the trail.

      HHI better than Aruba

    70. Richard on July 19th, 2007 9:42 pm

      Excellent point, Pearl … if we’re told that she died of a cocaine overdose, whether taken deliberately, taken by accident, or forcibly administered by others (did the report clarify this point?), then that suggests someone was in a position to do an autopsy. Either that, or it’s hearsay.

      If an autopsy was done, who did it, why was the body not preserved, and what happened to it?

      Also … we’ve been told by Aruba that anything thrown into the ocean from the shore, or near it, will float back to land. Therefore, the body would have had to be taken out in a boat.

      If this is the case, a boat was rented, borrowed, or stolen.
      Whose boat would have been used?

    71. Carpe Noctem on July 19th, 2007 9:49 pm

      If Natalee had simply died of cocaine

      she would have been found washed up on the

      beach in days.

      It was something Joran’s sick perverted carnivore

      blood sucker

      of a father would not be able to bend back into shape

      or fix!

      Something was done to the body, that if found

      would have put Paulus’ psychotic demon spawn of a rapist

      for a term of 15 years jail time.

      I will spell it out in B-L-O-O-D, because that

      is the only way a murdering/raping Van der sloot family

      member would be able to understand it…

      >REDRUM

      >MURDER

      You get 15 years for a brutal murderous attack… not for

      getting someone high on coke, and then dumping their body

      at sea post OD. Paulus could have fixed a simple coke

      overdose.

      ….

      REDRUM

      MURDER

      ….

      ARUBA, things have never been better! Hey Paul,

      can you that little dance for us again, where you stand

      out in the backyard and act like a tree? ROFL I want to

      email it to my mama and show what a big flaming puss-ket

      you are. LOL -j4n

    72. Pearl on July 19th, 2007 9:51 pm

      I think Bill’s part in Natalee’ favorite movie will be that of the scarecrow – except in this case, Bill won’t be seeing any brains coming his way from the Wizard anytime soon!

      BILL! WHERE ARE YOUR BRAINS? !!!!

      You said it IndyDan!

      Diet coke.
      Cherry Coke.
      Cocacola.

      Natalee didn’t DO DRUGS, BILL O’REILLY!
      And NO SPIN from the weavers of LIES is EVER going to sell this garbage for our consumption, off the pain, anguish, and horrific SUFFERING OF THIS CHILD AND HER FAMILY!

      Major disappointment: Bill O’Reilly and Geraldo.
      Clearly – they didn’t do their homework.
      While I don’t watch either of them, I have caught Bill from time to time. I had thought he knew how to ask good questions. What a disappointment.

      They didn’t read her painful truths that were buried beneath all the corruption, lies and vulgar deceptions carried out, along with all the barbaric human rights violations she suffered and her family suffered.

    73. disgustedmom on July 19th, 2007 9:55 pm

      O’Rielly + Geraldo = dumb X’s 2

      I can’t believe AGAIN they are trying to say what FOR SURE happened to Natalee WITHOUT anything more than someone’s word for it. OH, but that’s OK isn’t it? As long as ALE is doing it, it’s all good. {rolls eyes}

      You know Aruba is going to want to say after Tim doesn’t find squat in the ocean, “Well, that’s where she was. Someone said so. Case closed”.

      This is such bull….they are going to say Natalee took the drugs herself. And let Joran go with some light nothing of a penalty for being ‘scared’ or ‘drunk’ …let him off with some sort of “I didn’t know what I was doing’ thing.

      But what then would become of all Joran’s lies? Nothing. They’ve already decided not to worry about that.

      Poor Natalee is going down in the books as doing drugs while partying on the Happy Island! I am just sick! They probably won’t even say Joran dumped her in the ocean. They’ll more likely say she fell overboard while having a cardiac arrest and nobody noticed it until until the party boat docked.

      They know NOTHING! This is so stupid! A nicely tied up package. That’s all it is.

    74. Richard on July 19th, 2007 10:02 pm

      One other thing … as Miss Underestimated indicated, how long has this “reliable source” known about this? From anything other than hearsay (if the source exists at all)?

      If he or she was present at the time, why wasn’t this information brought forward earlier? Why didn’t the source put in for the reward money, and go to the police?

      This “reliable source” is, I suspect, one of the Julia Renfro brigade. They cut their teeth on that Amigoe story, and now are rushing full speed ahead on the disinformation trail. Maybe the Dutch have indeed left Aruba, and the lies are starting up again.

      Or maybe they’re trying to pave the way for Jorge Pescora to start sweet-talking us all on what a swell place Aruba really is?

      Forget it, bozo….

    75. Richard on July 19th, 2007 10:05 pm

      I didn’t see the program … was it clearly implied that this alleged cocaine overdose was taken willingly? Or was it left open that it could have been administered?

      We remember the computer search at the van der Sloot household on alcohol and drug combinations … could they have had Natalee in there bound and gagged while they tried to come up with some plausible ways to ensure an “accidental” death?

      I don’t think that was the case … but don’t know.

    76. mayan_moons on July 19th, 2007 10:22 pm

      I agree with ya Pearl, Richard, ben and the rest….WHY report on Natalee if you are not up to date on all the FACTS??? Seems they forgot the HEAVY BATTERY CHARGES NOT TO MENTION PREMEDITATED MURDER CHARGES LEVELED AT PAULUS & JURINE? HOWS THAT FIT IN BILL????

    77. mayan_moons on July 19th, 2007 10:28 pm

      OH NOT TO MENTION THE KIDNAPPING CHARGES ASWELL. THESE CHARGES WERE LEVELED BY CARIN JANSEN THE THEN PROSECUTOR BILL…..WHO ARE YOU GOING TO BELIEVE…..YOUR SO CALLED SOURCE OR AN ARUBAN PROSECUTOR?

      THIS IS NUTS…..DID YA FORGET ABOUT ALL THOSE CHARGES BILL & GERALDO?? CORRECT ME IF I’M WRONG GUYS BUT I NEVER HEARD ACCIDENT & BODY DISPOSAL IN ANY OF THE CRIMINAL CHARGES BROUGHT AGAINST ANY OF THOSE INVOLVED.

    78. mayan_moons on July 19th, 2007 10:30 pm

      LAST BUT CERTAINLY NOT LEAST I WANT TO ASK BILL HOW THE PROSECUTOR CAN LEVEL THESE KIND OF CHARGES WITHOUT SEEING NATALEE’S BODY?????????????

    79. MIss-Underestimated on July 19th, 2007 10:31 pm

      Carpe,

      My thoughts too, if it was a cocaine overdose, why’d they need to DISPOSE of Natalee?

      For this RELIABLE SOURCE to come forward means somebody is getting to close for comfort, now they’re coming up with a farce story.

    80. MIss-Underestimated on July 19th, 2007 10:38 pm

      One question for this RELIABLE SOURCE, what did Deepak mean when he said about finding all the sh)t on the girl

      Geraldo, hey didn’t you overhear Van dehr Straatens say how could he do this to his best friends son? Come down to earth guys, you are all blowing smoke given by your reliable source. You are losing your credibility and your journalism teeth. Is Deepak the source?

    81. david r on July 19th, 2007 10:39 pm

      Let him come over. When he commits a crime over here, his ass will go to jail.

    82. Brie on July 19th, 2007 10:42 pm

      Another speculation….and no support to back it up. Fear alone can bring on cardiac arrest and in the company of Joran, you can always count on him to have drugs in his possession. If she did overdose, her life may have been saved. 911. But obviously Joran couldn’t do that because of his involvement and Natalee would tell what happened.

      As far as Pasquera…very questionable connections…why also didn’t he do something about Posner owning a hotel on the island. Pasquera knew it was against the law in Aruba for a criminal to own a hotel or operate a business. Can only image what he is up to.

    83. mayan_moons on July 19th, 2007 10:47 pm

      THE ONLY THING THOSE 2 BOZO’S GOT RIGHT IS THAT ARUBA’S TOURISM IS IN THE CRAPPER AND BY GOD THAT IS WHERE IT WILL STAY IF WE HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY ABOUT IT!~

      I doubt anyone is interested, but—————

      When there is talk about Natalee O.D. ing on something, it seems to add credence to Joran’s character in some sick sort of way. My opinion-he is from the pit of hell. He’s a time bomb, the fuse is lit, and the timer is ticking.

      Please world be careful.

      If anyone remembers the video of him getting off the plane in Holland, and the reporter sticks the microphone in his face, that is Joran. That is his true character. He has eyes of a rattlesnake. He is coiled and ready to strike.

      If he could prove himself totally and completely innocent of Natalee’s disappearance, my opinion of him would not change.

    89. Maggie on July 19th, 2007 11:00 pm

      Just a few days ago we saw Dave’s statement on here over that new article in Amigoe. Dave said they said this is a homicide.

      I also remember that Michael Baden was on tv after Dompig made this stupid same announcement and said first of all they have no body, and if a person dies of an overdose, they go into a coma first that can last for hours and hours. All this talk of Natalee passing out and falling asleep and describing her body parts and underwear, just don’t sound like a simple cocaine overdose. Funny all these odd coincidences only happened after these three picked her up.

      #85…I do remember Joran in Holland…the reporter asked him ?’s about Natalee…and he said “I know what happened and I will tell you someday, but not now”.

    94. mayan_moons on July 19th, 2007 11:16 pm

      You are so right Indy…..the only coke Natalee had on Aruba was the cola.

      Even IF she had experimented with coke there is NO WAY she’d leave the company of friends in case of a bad reaction ya know. First time users are more worried if any harm will come to them as they’ve no experience with it.

      Yet i still DO NOT believe she ingested any drug of her own free will.

    95. Katablog on July 19th, 2007 11:28 pm

      Here is my belief about the O’Reilly story. I think someone on Aruba is shaking in their little booties after hearing Tim is coming with some very serious deep water equipment to look for Natalee.

      So once again, Aruba jumps to damage control, believing that Americans will believe Natalee ingested what killed her willingly. I think what Natalee ingested was dropped into her drink at CnC.

      IF Natalee has ingest cocaine willingly (and I think it was a mickey in her drink), then why would Joran not have told the truth? Why would he be taking them to the beach to look for her body? Why has he told the hundreds of different stories so far?

      I do believe Natalee died from illegal drugs – it makes sense with the reported computer searches on Paulus of the ditch’s computer. And I do believe that one of the Kalpoe brothers (Deepak) was present when Natalee died or went comatose.

    96. mayan_moons on July 19th, 2007 11:42 pm

      Katablog how very astute of you to link this repeat of lies with the up coming deep sea water search coming down the pike. Aruban’s are just dumb enough to think Natalee OD’ing on a drug she took herself BUT how do they explain her inside the crab cage??

      I do have a feeling Aruba is scrambling hard knowing that Tim is coming with all he needs to find Natalee if thats where they put her. This wonderful man making these ships available is something Aruba NEVER counted on to happen!

    97. Katablog on July 19th, 2007 11:50 pm

      BTW, I believe dumping (what you believe is) a dead body in the ocean is probably a crime. So why aren’t Deepak and Joran behind bars?

      The “Natalee willingly ingested cocaine” is to try to remove the murder rap since no one probably can prove otherwise at this point.

      But in the USA, if someone dies while you are committing a crime, you are responsible for their death. If Joran or Deepak supplied Cocaine to Natalee (I don’t think that is the case), then shouldn’t they be responsible for her death?

      Oh I know, Joran will say Natalee supplied the Cocaine. Let’s hope technology is good enough to prove him wrong.

      They are coming for you Joran!

    98. mayan_moons on July 19th, 2007 11:51 pm

      BOR’s proported *source* is conceding that Natalee IS dead….and BOA is ok to let it go at that?? No explanations, no criminal charges for those who put her in the sea from Bill??

    99. Richard on July 19th, 2007 11:59 pm

      The one option that nobody is talking about is that she was taken off Aruba alive. Even Joran never referred to that.

      It’s absurd, of course, to say that the one thing that nobody talks about could be the truth. But anyway ….

      Enough for one night. Will post my letter to the Florida governor and Palm Beach mayor tomorrow. Think I’ll challenge Bill O’Reilly to have his “source” put up or shut up when it comes to how this latest story was learned.

    100. mayan_moons on July 20th, 2007 12:09 am

      From the stills of video 24 Carpe & i see what we believe is Natalee in that tied up tarp and we agree that we see Natalee’s head & after many many hours we both concluded that we see a gunshot wound in her forehead. If Natalee is in that cage i for the first time think these ships & Triton WILL find her and when they do its probable that only the skull will still be inside it. It will be obvious to everyone in the recovery effort that a bullet entered that skull causing the death. I also think its possible that IF Natalee is in the cage that there will be atleast one other skull with hers.

    101. mayan_moons on July 20th, 2007 12:22 am

      That will blow Paulus and Jurine’s accidental OD out of the water big time!

    102. Brie on July 20th, 2007 12:28 am

      Here they go again, let’s blame Natalee! Let’s discredit Natalee! But, Joran you’ve done this 20 times before.

      Still want to know how did your dog die? Maybe the dog was present at the Sloot’s when Natalee was there and tried to stop the fighting. That might explain the scratches on Joran’s face. Deepak has already made the statements, “something bad happened”, “if they see the shit on her, “if they find that girl you’ll get 15 years”. So just from that we already know something terrible happened to Natalee with Joran and there was evidence on Natalee to prove it”.

      Well first off about Bill and Geraldo: yellow journalism at its worst; I am totally pi$$ed that I would like to kick both of their pampas a$$es and then go for their throats.
      Who the hell is Bill’s reliable source. If it’s someone from Aruba; we don’t have to worry, do we, they all lie on Aruba. Maybe it was Anita ratting on her son.
      Could Aruba really want to stop the bleeding now and convict someone and bring and end to this Aruban Law fiasco?
      Why didn’t Bill follow up on that; instead he gave us that insidious look that makes you want to throw up.
      Why didn’t he follow up with if that is true then bring Joran back in and convict him of illegal disposing of a corpse and abandonment. No, instead they continued to talk about drugs and how they speculated that Natalee ingested cocaine.
      Or better yet how did Joran know she was dead; does he have at the minimum CPR?
      If he states that is what happened; how do we know that Natalee may have been alive in a coma and he was responsible for her drowning and death?
      Maybe that is why Keon pees himself and sleeps with mommy. Bill never followed up on that either.
      That whole Fox news channel should be called the Hoover network because it just plain sucks.
      Beth should now sue the Fox network for defamation of character; because they will not and cannot produce the person responsible for the Bull$hit. They needed the ratings and the producers pushed for something earth shattering. The only thing I would want to hear shattering was when I would kick Bill in the gonads.

    106. Brie on July 20th, 2007 1:22 am

      Pasquera responsibility was to support marketing and member services to AHATA….so, he is guilty of supporting a criminal, who owns a hotel and by the laws of Aruba, is forbidden to operate and be licensed. As president it was his job to oversee these hotels and who and how they operate.

      We don’t want him in the US…he worked behind the sceens alright…not to help resolve any issues that would bring the boycott to an end but aid in the cover-up. He wasn’t minimizing anything to insure the safety of tourists and putting even more at risk.

      After GHB Was Slipped Into Her Drink
      After She Choked To Death While Being Raped By The 3 Pigs

      I guess the next visit on the agenda will be protesting in front of the Palm Beach Convention and Visitor’s Bureau….
      Pasquera is from the island of crime and corruption and did nothing to help resolve the case of Natalee Holloway or even tried to ensure the safety of other tourists. Just come and bring your pocketbook, Aruba needs the money! Participated in trying to stop the boycott which was put in place to ask for justice for Natalee, our American. And trying to do more damage behind the scenes by promoting cover-up to prevent the case from being solved. I certainly don’t see any credibility on his behalf and he admits to being the key player. He didn’t solve anything but made matters worse.

      If Palm Beach is impressed by his resume, I suggest they haven’t done a very good job in investigating the position he held….and he lies…and he lies…and he lies. But, if they’re still impressed, then they deserve all the bad publicity they can get.

      Bad enough when you slander and lie about someone missing and her family. Makes me wonder how many times they have threatened this poor family.I guess it was the only way Rudy could get them off the island and to shut them up.

      On 4-13-06 the “New York Post” reported:

      MOM ‘TERRIFIED’ OF ARUBA

      April 13, 2006 — The mother of the teenage girl who vanished on a school trip in Aruba wants her civil suit heard in New York because she’s “terrified” of going back to the island paradise – after receiving a threat that she would be “chopped up” and fed to the fish.

      In papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, Beth Twitty said she’s been subjected to a number of death threats during her search to find out what happened to Natalee Holloway, who disappeared on a school trip to Aruba last May.

      “Among those threats was a warning that, if I returned to Aruba, I would be ‘chopped up and put into a fish trap,’ ” Twitty said in affidavit.

      And Bill O’Reilly now uses Joe Tacopino as “high ups” for information he is spreading with no proof except the word of a lying liar.

    112. nurturer on July 20th, 2007 7:44 am

      From what I remember of the Geraldo/O’Reilly discussion, it was said that Natalee died from a massive coronary due to having ingested cocaine.

      I don’t remember either of them saying that Natalee ingested cocaine knowingly or willingly.

    113. Brie on July 20th, 2007 8:13 am

      So Natalee ingested cocaine….massive quantities….oh yeah….just like Pitbull….think not!!! Another one of their stupid, stupid, stupid statements. It was the date-rape drug….just like the others…given so you don’t remember what happened. 20 times before…right Joran.

      If Natalee is at sea and Tims finds her…think about the ATM withdrawal…did Paulus pay the fisherman for the use of his boat and gave him the money for the cage. That would be the easiest way to dispose of Natalee’s body at sea. So then the fisherman reports the cage stolen so he looks like he is innocent. But then again, what about all those pictures we’ve seen from Carpe….that was somebody!

      And then again, what about abduction…no one there ever wants that mentioned…Joran could of easily gone that route…left her on beach and she was abducted….it never went beyond., which of course, never happened. No beach scene existed.

      A story this morning says that the board voted unanimously to offer Pesquera the job. It’s now up to him to decide whether to accept … given that Aruba is a sinking ship, I’m sure he will. (I call it a sinking ship because you know what first leaves them … or perhaps, in Aruba’s case, also what doesn’t leave them.)

      Here’s another paragraph from the same story:

      The (Palm Beach tourism) bureau has been under scrutiny since October, when it learned that its former controller, Donna M. Duffer, had allegedly been forging checks to pay for her gambling addiction. In all, Duffer reportedly stole nearly $1.6 million from the bureau over three years WITHOUT ANYONE NOTICING. (emphasis supplied)

      I guess it’s only natural for competent people like these, so dedicated to their jobs, to look to Aruba ….

      (story is from the Palm Beach Post, July 20)

    115. Richard on July 20th, 2007 8:18 am

      Take another look at this quote from the top of this thread:

      On his résumé, he takes credit for playing “the key role in the establishment of the strategic communications task force, which worked behind the scenes to minimize the impact of the Holloway story and effectively stopped calls for boycott by some U.S. elected officials.”

      When Pasquera says he “effectively stopped calls for boycott,” just what exactly does he mean? Do U.S. officials kowtow to some Aruba tourism guy?

      What tools, whether green paper or something else, did he use to stop these calls? If this claim is true, then to whom does he refer? Let’s find out, so those elected officials can be called to account to their BOSSES, the AMERICAN PEOPLE.

      anybody that’s read natalees’ history and listened to her parents and friends describe her will agree that her taking cocaine or any other drug at all is totally out of character. to suggest that she did this willingly just a few hours before flying home to momma is even more absurd. this story is just a little more spin and detail work done to dompig’s story back in the spring that nobody bought then and nobody in their right mind is going to buy now.
      did you see how oreilly wouldn’t even look at the camera when he was telling this tale? did you notice how many times he and geraldo qualified their statements and made sure we understood that there was absolutely no evidence that any of the drivel was true. and greta said not a word about the whole affair, and bill’s teaser on her show didn’t even mention natalee? something’s afoot here, and it isn’t natalee being responsible for her own death. and just who was supposed to have diagnosed this “cardiac arrest”? all this is a total crock of steaming horse apples and i’m ashamed of fox for participating in it.

    120. Farrell on July 20th, 2007 8:37 pm

      Well Aruba will get one thing from this latest spin.
      The kind of toursit they have been asking for. Geraldo made sure everyone knew it was a haven for drugs and sex.

      Aruba, welcome you only tourist types coming to visit.

      You reap what you sow…

    121. dennisintn on July 21st, 2007 12:44 am

      #ll5, comped vacations and donations to campaign funds would be a pretty good place to start looking. lots of loose cash and empty rooms and suites on the happy island.
