World Bank Whistleblower Karen Hudes Reveals How The Global Elite Rule The World
The Economic Collapse Blog ^ | September 30th, 2013 | Michael Snyder

Posted on 10/02/2013 11:47:54 AM PDT by Texas Fossil

Karen Hudes is a graduate of Yale Law School and she worked in the legal department of the World Bank for more than 20 years. In fact, when she was fired for blowing the whistle on corruption inside the World Bank, she held the position of Senior Counsel. She was in a unique position to see exactly how the global elite rule the world, and the information that she is now revealing to the public is absolutely stunning. According to Hudes, the elite use a very tight core of financial institutions and mega-corporations to dominate the planet. The goal is control. They want all of us enslaved to debt, they want all of our governments enslaved to debt, and they want all of our politicians addicted to the huge financial contributions that they funnel into their campaigns. Since the elite also own all of the big media companies, the mainstream media never lets us in on the secret that there is something fundamentally wrong with the way that our system works.

Remember, this is not some "conspiracy theorist" that is saying these things. This is a Yale-educated attorney that worked inside the World Bank for more than two decades. The following summary of her credentials comes directly from her website...

Karen Hudes studied law at Yale Law School and economics at the University of Amsterdam. She worked in the US Export Import Bank of the US from 1980-1985 and in the Legal Department of the World Bank from 1986-2007. She established the Non Governmental Organization Committee of the International Law Section of the American Bar Association and the Committee on Multilateralism and the Accountability of International Organizations of the American Branch of the International Law Association.

Today, Hudes is trying very hard to expose the corrupt financial system that the global elite are using to control the wealth of the world. During an interview with the New American, she discussed how we are willingly allowing this group of elitists to totally dominate the resources of the planet...

A former insider at the World Bank, ex-Senior Counsel Karen Hudes, says the global financial system is dominated by a small group of corrupt, power-hungry figures centered around the privately owned U.S. Federal Reserve. The network has seized control of the media to cover up its crimes, too, she explained. In an interview with The New American, Hudes said that when she tried to blow the whistle on multiple problems at the World Bank, she was fired for her efforts. Now, along with a network of fellow whistleblowers, Hudes is determined to expose and end the corruption. And she is confident of success.

Citing an explosive 2011 Swiss study published in the PLOS ONE journal on the “network of global corporate control,” Hudes pointed out that a small group of entities — mostly financial institutions and especially central banks — exert a massive amount of influence over the international economy from behind the scenes. “What is really going on is that the world’s resources are being dominated by this group,” she explained, adding that the “corrupt power grabbers” have managed to dominate the media as well. “They’re being allowed to do it.”

Previously, I have written about the Swiss study that Hudes mentioned. It was conducted by a team of researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, Switzerland. They studied the relationships between 37 million companies and investors worldwide, and what they discovered is that there is a "super-entity" of just 147 very tightly knit mega-corporations that controls 40 percent of the entire global economy...

When the team further untangled the web of ownership, it found much of it tracked back to a "super-entity" of 147 even more tightly knit companies - all of their ownership was held by other members of the super-entity - that controlled 40 per cent of the total wealth in the network. "In effect, less than 1 per cent of the companies were able to control 40 per cent of the entire network," says Glattfelder. Most were financial institutions. The top 20 included Barclays Bank, JPMorgan Chase & Co, and The Goldman Sachs Group.

But the global elite don't just control these mega-corporations. According to Hudes, they also dominate the unelected, unaccountable organizations that control the finances of virtually every nation on the face of the planet. The World Bank, the IMF and central banks such as the Federal Reserve literally control the creation and the flow of money worldwide.

At the apex of this system is the Bank for International Settlements. It is the central bank of central banks, and posted below is a video where you can watch Hudes tell Greg Hunter of USAWatchdog.com the following...

"We don’t have to wait for anybody to fire the Fed or Bank for International Settlements . . . some states have already started to recognize silver and gold, the precious metals, as currency"

Most people have never even heard of the Bank for International Settlements, but it is an extremely important organization. In a previous article, I described how this "central bank of the world" is literally immune to the laws of all national governments...

An immensely powerful international organization that most people have never even heard of secretly controls the money supply of the entire globe. It is called the Bank for International Settlements, and it is the central bank of central banks. It is located in Basel, Switzerland, but it also has branches in Hong Kong and Mexico City. It is essentially an unelected, unaccountable central bank of the world that has complete immunity from taxation and from national laws. Even Wikipedia admits that "it is not accountable to any single national government." The Bank for International Settlements was used to launder money for the Nazis during World War II, but these days the main purpose of the BIS is to guide and direct the centrally-planned global financial system. Today, 58 global central banks belong to the BIS, and it has far more power over how the U.S. economy (or any other economy for that matter) will perform over the course of the next year than any politician does. Every two months, the central bankers of the world gather in Basel for another "Global Economy Meeting". During those meetings, decisions are made which affect every man, woman and child on the planet, and yet none of us have any say in what goes on. The Bank for International Settlements is an organization that was founded by the global elite and it operates for the benefit of the global elite, and it is intended to be one of the key cornerstones of the emerging one world economic system.

This system did not come into being by accident. In fact, the global elite have been developing this system for a very long time. In a previous article entitled "Who Runs The World? Solid Proof That A Core Group Of Wealthy Elitists Is Pulling The Strings", I included a quote from Georgetown University history professor Carroll Quigley from a book that he authored all the way back in 1966 in which he discussed the big plans that the elite had for the Bank for International Settlements...

[T]he powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks which were themselves private corporations.

And that is exactly what we have today.

We have a system of "neo-feudalism" in which all of us and our national governments are enslaved to debt. This system is governed by the central banks and by the Bank for International Settlements, and it systematically transfers the wealth of the world out of our hands and into the hands of the global elite.

But most people have no idea that any of this is happening because the global elite also control what we see, hear and think about. Today, there are just six giant media corporations that control more than 90 percent of the news and entertainment that you watch on your television in the United States.

This is the insidious system that Karen Hudes is seeking to expose. For much more, you can listen to Joyce Riley of the Power Hour interview her for an entire hour right here.

A lot of that is simply the effect of having the Gay MSM on his side.

What drew my interest is my puzzlement about the earthly power that put Obozo in office. He has no real past, no accomplishment, no attachment to the US. All 3 branches of government know he is a total Fraud, how can no one pretend to oppose him? It makes no sense.

That's the logical "red flag" that something is not as it is purported to be.

This is bigger than the Builder Burgers, the global bankers, the Muzzie Oil Interest, the Commies, the Dictators. All of them combined? In what fashion.

One has to understand the "org chart", who reports to whom. This is how large criminal investigations are done - the players in the criminal organization are investigated and the investigators develop a literal "org chart" so they understand who is calling the shots.

One needs to understand the relative size or power of the players. For instance, the middle eastern oil interests. They are financially a pimple compared to the US. The US has a dozen aircraft carriers; latest cost figure is about $6 billion a pop. The US economy, total goods bought and sold for a year... is so big that it is the equivalent of more than 2,000 aircraft carriers. Meaning, in a pinch, if the US wanted to build 100 new aircraft carriers, we could. NWO, which controls banking, finance and industry, would approve the US government borrowing like crazy, and the ships would get built. This is what happened in WWII, massive military effort.

The middle eastern nations that are allied with the West, if you look realistically at them, are really nothing but oil wells with puppet governments ruling over a peasantry. Their ruling families are vassals for new world order. New world order is actually who calls the shots for the US government. So publicly our middle eastern "allies" have some sort of love/hate relationship with the US government. But that is all a show. Their ruling families are vassals, and new world order, through their private espionage operations, which control the top positions in the CIA, can depose them at any time the choose to. In fact, that is what the "arab spring" was.

Karen Hudes may be working for new world order or merely been bitten by them and only know about the teeth that bit her.

I still believe Pres. Kennedy was assassinated because he dared to think and act that the USA had Constitutional authority to print It’s own money

Huh?

If the US Treasury simply created the dollars it needed to fund the federal deficit every year - it would spend the same amount into the economy - but then the Treasury, i.e., the taxpayer, would not owe the accumulated deficit plus interest.

It worked for Zimbabwe.

Yes indeed! Kennedy had printed by USA presses by and under the auspices of USA treasury, which was part of his Constitutional cabinet over $200,000,000.00 in USA dollars These went on the market but I do not know for what purpose. It gives me more interesting follow up opportunity.

So what? US Notes were printed before.

These went on the market but I do not know for what purpose.

But you know it resulted in his death?

Maybe because even back then they realized the free blackmarket economy was more of a tax base, via sales tax, than an IRS racket.

You have posted two distinctly different notes and I would I would take from your comment this was to discredit my remarks. 1) the first shown is not a USA Treasury note. It is a version of a Fed Reserve note as indicated buy the words’ ..pay to the bearer on demand..’ Secondly the note is I would read the date as 1953 this is well into the period after Wilson and FDR who were big pushers for internationalist bankers. 2) The second $5 note apparently was printed in 1953. Pres. Kennedy was assassinated on Nov. 22,1953. Coincidental? Secondly I see the note does not have the wording of your first note i.e. payable to bearer but very simply states ‘United States Note’. I am also intrigued by the wording on this note that ‘This Note Is Legal Tender for All Debts, Public and Private’. This vastly different and more succinct than what is printed on your first example. So as for now I will hold even more so to my thoughts that Pres. Kennedy might well have been assassinated for daring to oppose the international powers and probably of the same cabal that stuck Obama in as eligible for POTUSA.

No. The first is a United States Note, 1953.

The second is a United States Note, 1963.

Both printed by the US Treasury, not the Fed.

If the 1963 Note resulted in JFK's death, why didn't the 1953 Note kill Eisenhower?

Yep, she even looks nutty.

As far as her alarm about International Bankers, I am sure they are behind the Obastard and his actions.

But Hudes said she was (past tense) an Obozo supporter. She painted him as one of the good guys. That statement alone kills all credibility she might have had and any sympathy on my part.

The different notes might well be printed by the same presses but they were printed for different intentions and different financial entities. The difference is very noticeable as to the different notations to the left of the portraits. I erred as to the date of the second note which you correctly noted. However my look see is still valid in that these notes are for different purposes. The USA is still printing Fed Reserve Notes as given on a 2009 $5 bill I am now looking at that specifically says Fed Reserve Note, not USA dollar. I believe the printing of USA Treasury dollars/notes stopped after Pres. Kennedy’s death.

Nope. Both printed for the Treasury, unlike Federal Reserve Notes, printed for the Fed.

The difference is very noticeable as to the different notations to the left of the portraits.

The important part is "United States Note"

However my look see is still valid in that these notes are for different purposes.

It would be awesome if you shared what the different purposes were.

I believe the printing of USA Treasury dollars/notes stopped after Pres. Kennedy’s death.

I believe they were still put into circulation until the early 70s.

A United States Note, also known as a Legal Tender Note, is a type of paper money that was issued from 1862 to 1971 in the U.S. Having been current for over 100 years, they were issued for longer than any other form of U.S. paper money. They were known popularly as "greenbacks" in their heyday, a name inherited from the Demand Notes that they replaced in 1862. Often called Legal Tender Notes, they were called United States Notes by the First Legal Tender Act, which authorized them as a form of fiat currency. During the 1860s the so-called second obligation on the reverse of the notes stated:[1]

This Note is Legal Tender for All Debts Public and Private Except Duties On Imports And Interest On The Public Debt; And Is Redeemable In Payment Of All Loans Made To The United States.

They were originally issued directly into circulation by the U.S. Treasury to pay expenses incurred by the Union during the American Civil War. Over the next century, the legislation governing these notes was modified many times and numerous versions have been issued by the Treasury.

United States Notes that were issued in the large-size format, before 1929, differ dramatically in appearance when compared to modern American currency, but those issued in the small-size format, starting in 1929, are very similar to contemporary Federal Reserve Notes with the highly visible distinction of having red U.S. Treasury Seals and serial numbers in place of green ones.

Existing United States Notes remain valid currency in the United States. However, since no United States Notes have been issued since January 1971, they are vanishingly rare in circulation.
