I am reproducing the full text of Joel Skousen’s critique of World Bank whistleblower Karen Hudes in his November 22, 2013 World Affairs Brief (worldaffairsbrief.com) in response to increasingly bold claims by her and corresponding scrutiny of them.

ANALYZING CLAIMS OF WORLD BANK INSIDER KAREN HUDES

Karen Hudes worked as a lawyer for the World Bank and claims to be a whistleblower revealing massive corruption at the Bank. Everything she says about the situation there is correct:

Think of the World Bank as Enron. The World Bank has issued over $180 billion in bonds on the world’s capital markets, but its financial statements are not accurate. The US Congress has been unsuccessful in resolving this problem, first identified by the Joint Economic Committee in 2005. The World Bank stonewalled Senator Lugar’s and Congressman Van Hollen’s four requests for the advice of the executive search firm following my disclosure of internal control lapses during my interview for General Counsel. I have been fulfilling my professional responsibilities as the World Bank’s lawyer to bring the World Bank into compliance.

But the World Bank did not want to comply, so she became a whistleblower along with several other bank employees like Elaine Coville of Scotland. Together they lobbied Parliament to reign in the World Bank but the political PTB in the US and UK stonewalled and covered up the corruption. The World Bank has hundreds of “directors” giving each of the member countries a tiny say on the Board. But Hudes reveals that many have been blackmailed into going along and not exposing the corruption:

“I have just returned from Holland, and learned there that Messrs. Wijffels and Melkert [the representatives of the Dutch on the World Bank’s Board of Directors] have informed the Dutch public that they were subjected to investigations of their private lives as a form of diplomatic blackmail. According to Mr. Wijffels, other executive directors on the World Bank’s Board have been similarly intimidated.

Within her area of expertise, Mrs. Hudes is right on target. But like many whistleblowers who start to get a glimpse of the globalist control system, she has begun to make statements claiming to understand the much broader globalist conspiracy and that’s where I have a few problems with her claims. Yes, there is a larger global conspiracy against national sovereignty but many of her extraneous claims are outlandish or invented out of thin air.

Actually, I read her as very sincere, so I don’t think she is knowingly lying. But often whistleblowers like Hudes start getting “help” from disinformation experts in government who feed whistleblowers like her false information to undermine their credibility. Here’s a brief review of her other claims (my response in brackets):

1. Financial corruption within the world financial system, and that the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) are two similar corruption international organs controlled by the same private financial powers. [TRUE]

2. Those that control the international monetary system also control the media, and people are being brainwashed and deceived about what is really going on. [TRUE]

3. If we could just get one country to expose this, we could turn this around.[FALSE. The PTB have too much control over the high politicians in every Western country, via blackmail mostly.]

5. 40% of our tax dollars go to UK and 60% to the Vatican [FALSE. Yes, the City of London (a city within London, controlled by the international bankers) and the Vatican bank are deeply involved in this international corruption and collusion, but this claim about the UK and the Vatican having first claim on US tax money is ludicrous. The FED keeps the world financial system afloat with new money, but there is no necessity to collar tax receipts and physically ship them overseas. That’s not how anything works in the dark side of globalism.]

6. She claims we are financing our government by selling drugs [Partly TRUE. Old information and no longer true to this degree. Yes, the US still runs the largest international drug smuggling operation, in combination with selected cartels, but that money is now a pittance compared to what our government spends and creates through electronic journal entries, outside of congressional supervision.]

7. She claims the money to UK is war reparations from the 1812 war and that England has to pay off loans the Vatican made in the 1800s to it for war. [FALSE. She’s been reading too many anti-Vatican conspiracy books. My main complaint about many conspiracy books is that the authors claim to know more than anyone could know without being on the inside. And if they are on the inside, then you couldn’t trust what they write anyway.]

8. Lincoln issued greenbacks directly via the treasury and that’s why he was rubbed out [True that he issued greenbacks directly, but False that this was somehow more virtuous and that the bankers killed him for it. Many conservatives think that using the treasury to issue fiat currency is somehow proper, but it isn’t. Any issuance of fiat currency is evil and a theft of private value. Don’t fall for this one. All currency should be redeemable in a physical commodity and the only role of government is to make sure there is no fraud in money.]

9. JFK was killed for erasing the interest on the US debt and trying to cut the FED out of the process. Also that “banksters” are trying to keep us in debt and crash the dollar. [The killing of JFK by the dark side of our own government is a massive conspiracy and nobody knows all the reasons. He was trying to reign in the CIA and the FED, but the PTB are NOT trying to crash the dollar or they would have done it long ago. Yes, they want to keep other countries in debt to the World Bank and IMF so they can dictate and control their economic policy, but that isn’t true domestically. The PTB love deficit spending because it keeps government from having to tax people for evil policies and foreign interventions that the public would resist (due to the high price). Continually increasing debt becomes a threat to their system of not taxing the common person—as default will eventually prohibit any more deficits. But, default is at least 15 years away, so they still have time to play this game.]

10. Board members to the World bank were being blackmailed when they tried to fire Wolfowitz after he gave a huge salary increase to his girlfriend at the bank. [TRUE]

11. She gets into claims that the PTB are using Maritime law to govern property and marriages and that bonds are being issued for each child born, for collateral and control [Completely FALSE. They have more than enough power and control over Congress and the courts and don’t need such archaic legal mechanisms nowadays. Besides, even if this were true a non-insider working in an administrative legal capacity at the WB would never be privy to this kind of admission.]

12. We have 49 out of 50 States that have called for a constitutional convention (Con Con) which is the way to take back our Republic and demand our rights. [FALSE on all counts, and constitutional conservatives would never even get appointed by state governors to serve at the convention—they would stack it with establishment legislators and lawyers and we’d be worse off than when we started.]

13. 170,000 tons of gold in the Bank of Hawaii. The CIA’s purpose is to protect the gold, Vatican controls the CIA. [FALSE and ridiculous. Once again, how could she know this? How do you get from being a lowly admin lawyer at the WB and know all this stuff. It doesn’t come from insider info, but rather from reading too many conspiracy books that are amplifying a few known conspiracy truths and then adding a lot of garbage details to make it appear they have insider knowledge. But there is zero proof nor confirmation of these details.]

14. Obama’s mother was a CIA agent and Michelle fell into a honey trap [seduced], was compromised in a hotel. [FALSE. There’s plenty of dirt about Obama’s background and non-citizen status, but this claim isn’t credible. It tells me a disinformation agent has got her ear and pumping it full of false claims to get her discredited. The claims about the CIA connection are more true about Obama than with his mother, who was a marxist. Wayne Madsen used a lot of circumstantial connections to say that Obama’s mother Ann Dunham worked “on behalf of a number of CIA front operations, including the East-West Center at the University of Hawaii, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Ford Foundation.” The East-West Center had long been affiliated with CIA activities in the Asia-Pacific region, Madsen says, but just because the CIA has at one time or another used these organizations as cover for various agents, doesn’t mean that everyone who ever had any relationship there was also CIA. Bad logic]

15. On the 8th of October there was supposed to be a nuclear bomb detonated over SC—two army officers made sure it was dropped in the sea where it exploded. Then they were fired. 80 generals and top brass are now being fired. These are people protecting the citizens of the US. [This idiotic rumor continues to grow more and more bizarre each week. It’s all false, as I detailed in the October 18, 2013 WAB. Log into the website to view the archives under “Latest Brief.”]

In summary, Hudes is not herself a disinformation agent and I believe her to be sincere, but she’s way beyond her pay grade when she starts repeating junk theories that she reads elsewhere or that are fed to her by disinformation sources. She should stick to what she knows first-hand.”

Updated 03/01/14 in response to a reader’s email to Karen Hudes, asking for clarification. See more in the comments below.

Karen HudesThanks to Red Ice Radio for conducting this February 21, 2014 interview with Karen Hudes, confirming my suspicions about her since late 2013, when she claimed that the Jesuits were behind the corruption at the World Bank, and by extension, the international banking system.

This despite the last three World Bank presidents being Robert Zoellick, Paul Wolfowitz and James Wolfensohn, and the latest three Federal Reserve Bank chairs being Janet Yellen, Ben Bernanke and Alan Greenspan — none of whom are Jesuits.

Another alarm bell went off for me when she advocated giving back IMF gold to the member countries, so they could use it to back up their currencies. This is the pattern of the international banksters since the 1700s, in going to some gold-backed currency in order to boost confidence in it, with the full intention of removing the gold backing until usury has run its inevitable course and devalued the currency.

It’s no coincidence, therefore, that former World Bank President, Robert Zoellick, called for some sort of gold linkage for currencies.

Then, with this interview, she’s claiming aliens are behind the Jesuits. Sorry — it’s too much — and I now have to blow the whistle on her.

For a fact-based, wide-ranging discussion of real economics, see my Red Ice Radio interview here.

Here is my summary of her interview:

17m – Claimed a nuclear device was supposed to be detonated on Charleston
19m – Only started getting attention in 2013 from alternative media
21m – Said the Jesuits are the group behind the corruption at the World Bank, and there’s some groups behind them
22m – Said some are telling her to not say who’s behind the Jesuits
– Said a neurologist quoted someone who said the same thing and suddenly died at the age of 34
– Said picture of Akhenaten isn’t of a human
25m – Said some in Vatican wear “crazy” headdresses that hide high skulls
26m – She said it’s probably more believable than the nonsense they tell us about aliens
31m – Admits some have called her a disinfo agent for getting so much publicity
34m – Robert McNamara came to run the World Bank
35m – She talked to fellow World Bank whistleblowers and they said the World Bank could be part of a solution
36m – Said we’re on the verge of a collapse of paper currencies, and World Bank and IMF hold keys to gold and could be part of solution if it were given back to member countries
37m – Claimed no one knew that World Bank controls the world’s gold
– Her interview with Antal Fekete
39m – Antal suggests minting the gold
40m – Use certificates for gold because minting takes too long
41m – Said Jesuits and Homo Capensis (“coneheads”) were behind plan to steal gold
43m – Henrik asked how could an evil plan be for our benefit
44m – She said it’s a mystery how the whistleblowers got together — said it’s a mystery to themselves, too
48m – Said she didn’t realize that the media was part of the problem, she thought they’d be part of the solution
49m – Gentleman’s agreement that the u.s. would choose the head of the World Bank, and the Europeans would choose the head of the IMF
53m – She could sue the World Bank because she was a bondholder — otherwise, they have immunity
55m – Said Strauss-Kahn wanted to get gold into the world’s hands, so that’s why he was taken down, but he hired someone suing her
58m – She had been interviewed for the position of General Counsel
1h5m – Said fellow whistleblower who is into water issues was given top position by Jesuits and asked to sign a contract for 9 quadrillion
1h7m – (Updated) – Says we don’t have time for committees to study gold backwardation, and we need to move quickly to prevent it
1h8m – People in alternative media highly conditioned to not trust any government action
1h11m – She sees IMF and Bretton Woods as a springboard for reform
1h14m – She referred to so-called first 13th amendment barring bar members from government, in saying 14th amendment
1h17m – Said there’s more gold in the world than we know – referred to Wolfgang Struck — German banker living in Philippines for past two decades
1h18m – Said the world owes Ferdinand Marcos a huge debt for setting up a good legal system
1h19m – She said JFK was killed by Jesuits
1h20m – Said Hitler was related to Japanese emperor, etc.
1h25m – Silvio Gessel said local currencies are the best currencies
1h26m – (Updated) Said we’re going to have to use force (with armies) to get gold from World Bank to give to member countries (if they don’t voluntarily cooperate)
1h29m – Said there was a nuclear bomb that was supposed to explode on the 8th, but was stopped
1h31m – Said the Jesuits have been stopped
1h33m – She said look what’s happening with fiat money
1h36m – Henrik said he’s not seeing the tide turn any time soon
1h38m – She said there should be no ifs, ands, ors or buts about stopping gold backwardation

I emailed the following to Coast to Coast AM producers Lisa Lyon and Tom Danheiser, on the eve of Benjamin Fulford’s scheduled appearance on January 30, 2012:

Before you have Benjamin Fulford on this Monday’s show, consider that one of your previous guests, Joel Skousen, has openly stated that the claim Fulford made concerning two earthquakes in 2011 being caused by an anti-establishment group using nukes to blow up two underground bunkers of the elites is utterly false (World Affairs Brief, September 23, 2011).

Furthermore, one of your most prominent guests, Alex Jones, who had Fulford on in the past, hasn’t had him on again since 2008 (according to his prisonplanet.tv archives), and I’d say the reason likely is that Alex doesn’t want to be associated with the unsubstantiated claims that Fulford later put out.

The show description indicates that he plans to argue that Asia controls most of the world’s money, which is completely and provably false, just by world GDP alone, according to official IMF numbers for 2010.

While I understand the approach of letting the audience make up their own minds, the same could be said for the HIV/AIDS scam, yet discussion of it is deliberately being kept off your show, so I would ask for some consistency if Fulford is brought on.

Charlie Rose in 2010 at the Tribeca Film Festival

Triple Crown Charlie (CFR and Trilateral Commission member and Bilderberg attendee) Rose has pulled the transcripts of all the interviews on his site, CharlieRose.com.

Maybe it was considered an unjustified expense, or perhaps it’s because people could easily look up and see what some of the top globalists have said about their plans for the world.

Here are the most recent ones I covered, which received significant alternative media coverage:

January 25, 2011: Corporate welfare recipient Morgan Stanley Chairman working for China

December 19, 2010: IMF Director says IMF “forces coordination” and there’s “no other solution” to Greek-style austerity

Previously, I wrote how the United States Postal Service has been undercutting the U.S. dollar since 2003, with IMF Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) accounting for the majority of their international accounts.

SDRs are a synthetic currency introduced by the International Monetary Fund in 1969, which are weighted based on the U.S. dollar, the Euro, the British pound and the Japanese yen.

As of 2010, there are only two currencies pegged to IMF SDRs, both since 1995. They are the Czech Koruna and the Jordanian Dinar. However, by 2012, the Czech Koruna is scheduled to be replaced by the Euro.

Since 2009, I have heard two prominent financial analysts repeatedly make the claim on multiple programs, including two major ones with over a million weekly listeners, that gold and silver are all you can rely on. But what about platinum?

How much can you really rely on gold and silver, when gold was confiscated by the U.S. government in 1933 at the height of the Great Depression, and silver in 1934. And how can you specifically rely on gold when it’s the commodity most controlled by the international bankers, and a reserve currency for national and international banks?

Unlike gold and silver, a confiscation of platinum is unlikely for several reasons:
1) It’s not a reserve currency for national and international banks like gold is.
2) It isn’t as widely held as gold and silver.
3) Its historical investment and currency use is shorter than gold and silver.
4) Its decreased demand relative to gold and silver in a recession, due to its overwhelming industrial demand, leading to better performance during the subsequent recovery.

When I mention platinum as an investment comparable to gold and silver, I’ve been told that platinum has little to no historical use as a currency. As I wrote previously, platinum has an international currency code along with gold, silver and palladium. Since 1988, one ounce platinum coins from the Royal Canadian Mint have a legal tender value of $50. Since 1997, American Platinum Eagles from the United States Mint have a legal tender value of $100.

From 1967-1978, the first and only regularly minted gold coin available for the masses was the South African Krugerrand. However, due to trade sanctions imposed by many Western countries on South Africa for their policy of apartheid, the Krugerrand’s availability was severely limited from the 1970s until 1994.

It got some serious competition in 1979, when the Royal Canadian Mint began minting Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coins. Just nine years later, at the height of sanctions on the import of Krugerrands, one ounce platinum coins were minted by the Royal Canadian Mint between 1988, and continued to be minted until 2002, and were reintroduced in 2009.

Not only can you rely on platinum as a historically non-confiscatable metal, you can also rely on it historically trading at a substantial premium over gold. Over most of the past decade, platinum has traded at a 50 to 100% premium over gold. At a 38% premium over gold at the end of January 2010, it still has plenty of room to appreciate to its historical trading premium relative to gold.

Recently, platinum outperformed gold in 2009, and for the first month of 2010.

Now ask yourself why you’re being told that gold and silver, and not platinum, are the only things you can rely on, why gold and silver are being pushed so much, and not platinum, and why most of you haven’t heard these things about platinum before.
