TWO YEARS LATER--WHAT HAVE WE REALLY LEARNED?



Unfortunately, it has been two years since Natalee Holloway vanished after last being seen with Joran van der Sloot and the Kalpoe brothers. Within the past 24 months an astounding amount of information has surfaced, yet nothing has happened. No one has been prosecuted. The media fed and continues to feed lies and teasers; Aruba feeds more lies and unseen “fireworks”.


We learned that Joran came up with approximately 20 different lies about what happened that night with Natalee. We learned that the Kalpoe brothers not only have many lies, but different accounts as to what happened to Natalee. We learned that Joran’s father was involved in Natalee’s disappearance. His involvement may never be known, but we do know that he not only lied, but was implicit in the cover-up and ongoing conspiracy of Natalee’s disappearance. We learned the infamous phrase, “No body, no case”. We learned of Paulus’ “clout” on the island as well as his best friends, business colleagues and dirty connections.


We learned of Steve Croes, the false witness who lied in order to put two innocent security men behind bars. We learned of other witnesses that came forward, yet mysteriously “disappeared”, retracted their statements, or were deported for unknown reasons.


We learned that Natalee was declared dead on June 10, 2005, yet later the statement was retracted. Did she miraculously rise from the dead? Who was the “dead person” they found?


We learned about and watched the “Arubay videos” and the infamous missing video that could blow the case open which a man named Ed Smith claims to have. We learned that the Aruba Visibility Team was at the scene where the footage was taped and “something” was found. Rocks were painted with an unknown substance. Items of importance or possible forensic evidence were found and quickly discarded like used tissue. A picture of a white garbage bag with something eerily human inside surfaced on the internet and in the American papers. A man was photographed carrying a scrap of material matching Natalee’s shirt. A bone was found. We were told things were sent to Holland for forensic testing, yet we heard nothing.


Suspects came and went like a revolving door…yet nothing surfaced. It is Aruba’s longest running “circus festival”…will we ever see a just and fair finale?


We learned that the police investigator Gerold Dompig stated that the three boys were “guilty as hell”. We learned Dompig is related to a well-known local “beach bum drug dealer” and the Kalpoe brothers. Dompig’s son, Michael, who was also known to hang out with “the pimps” told a source that hours before Beth Twitty arrived on the island he saw Joran, Koen Gottenbos and Deepak take Koen’s boat out into the ocean. Dompig ended his career after he went on national television and stated that Natalee likely died of an “overdose”.


We learned that Aruba has suffered greatly because of this tragedy that did not have to escalate. The boycott of Aruba has stymied their economy and their reputation has been forever damaged.


Yet, with all this information and much more that could fill a book (and that book is called Aruba: The Tragic Untold Story of Natalee Holloway and Corruption in Paradise) NOTHING has happened.


We are now waiting on the Dutch to decide Natalee’s fate. Will she receive her due JUSTICE? Will Joran et al walk away scott free? What will come of the Kalpoe’s lawsuit against Dr. Phil and Dave and Beth’s suit against the Kalpoe’s for wrongful death? Will we ever really learn the truth? Will Natalee ever really receive justice?


Two years is a long time to lie…the consequence of continued lying? The INDEFINITE boycott of Aruba and everything Dutch.

Good job, Michelle.

A copy of this has gone to every International Human Rights organization in my address book.

If Chavez keeps up his rumblings there may not be any need to boycott Aruba. He has said more than a few times in the past six months it is time for reunification of VENEZUELA'S islands that are "currently" being OCCUPIED by the Dutch.

May 30 countdown zeroed on the Dutch this morning and convicted the Netherlands people are the most bad Europeans in the world. The Dutch and their laws teach and encourage their children to kidnap, drug, gangrape and murder Natalee. Now this case is out of the dirty hands of the Dutch. The severe punishments to Dutch nation is by God and from the armies of the world. The Dutch will the prisoners of their own Joranian lies and cruel treatments of the American tourists. The Dutch will never be the Friend of America.

The Dutch and the KLPD intelligence were the first guilty parties who cheated and persuaded our president into his own personal Iraq war and caused so many deaths of our troups. The Dutch are Nazi and KGB mindsets. The EU members will want to expel the Dutch from their amongst. The Dutch are bad influences. They are killing the European areospace industries and EU economy with their Dutch prostitutes and human organs stashing and black market subcultures. Boycott the Dutch.

The Dutch now like to flaunt the numbers of our war dead in Iraq like a flag signifying American defeat.

What they conveniently forget is in Netherlands American Cemetery and Memorial, there are 8,301 U.S. veterans buried who fought for THEIR democracy. (And that is just ONE cemetery.)

The total is: 135,576 American military personnel were KIA in Europe between D-Day & V-E Day.

We learned that aruba assigned Paulus best friend to investigate the case. We learned he never should have been put on it. Because it wasn't his job. We learned that Paulus has judge friends who stay with him and change search warrants. We learned that the prosecutor is a co-worker and friend of Paulus. We learned that all of them did favors to keep Paulus and his son from getting into trouble.

What have we learned? We have learned that Joran is truly a sick, demented person, who cares for no one but himself. A true psychopath.

Read this interview with Panorama and see for yourself:

I just read that interview and with my knowledge of sociopaths, he fits the profile perfectly. He has no qualms about stating he only cares for himself. He has no empathy for anyone but himself. He is also a narcissist with a serious personality disorder.

He has got to be the most repulsive and misogynistic pig in the world...aside from O.J. (Joran's hero)

Hey Joran...remember when you said "fuck Natalee?"

WELL FUCK YOU!

(sorry about the language if anyone is offended...but he deserved that one and you know I don't hold back!)

IT IS SIMPLE: "SOME AMERICANS" ARE PLAIN STUPID, THEY JUST CAN'T HELP THEMSELVES.
e.g. MY GIRLFRIEND'S SISTER AKA "SOME AMERICAN" DIDN'T EVEN KNOW THE CAPITAL WAS WASINGTON DC.
AND SHE DIDN'T EVEN KNOW THAT ALASKA & HAWAII WERE STATES, SO YOU TELL ME, STUPID OR WHAT? I INVESTIGATED MORE, AND ASKED 10 MORE PEOPLE.
I ASKED QUESTIONS LIKE "HOW MANY STARS DOES THE FLAG HAVE ON IT?" THEY REPLIED "I DON'T KNOW" HMMMM. i ASKED "WHAT DO THE 13 STRIPES ON THE FLAG REPRESENT?" THEY REPLIED "I DON'T KNOW" HMMM. ENOUGH EXPLANATION? WHO STARTS A WAR FOR NO REASON?
WHO AINT HELPING STOP GLOBAL WARMING AND ADMITS MORE CO2 THEN ANY OTHER COUNTRY IN THE WORLD? YEP IT ISN'T "I DON'T KNOW", IT'S "SOME AMERICANS."
THIS MAY SEEM LIKE HATE FOR THE COUNTRY BUT!!! IT'S SOME PEOPLE IN THE COUNTRY WHO NEED TO BE STRAIGHTENED OUT. AMERICA DOES GOOD THINGS BUT!!! THE BAD THEY DO OVERWELMS THE GOOD. LOOK ON YOUR OWN LAND AMERICA BEFORE YOU LOOK ON OTHERS OK. Take note not all "Americans but!!! SOME."
