Truth Warrior – Karen Hudes World Bank Whistleblower


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.

In 2007 Karen warned the US Treasury Department and US Congress that the US would lose its right to appoint the President of the World Bank if the current American President of the World Bank did not play by the rules. The 66 year old Gentlemen’s Agreement that Europe would appoint the Managing Director of the IMF and US would appoint the World Bank President ended in 2010. Her website is: http://kahudes.net


World Bank Whistleblower is on Main Stream Media Stations with Warning

Published on Oct 19, 2013

Four Senators wrote Letters to Congress on behalf of Ms. Hudes in response to her disclosure that the Debt of the U.S.A was headed for collapse- as far back as 2005. She discovered Corruption beyond belief. She said that Americans would be astounded to know what is truly going on behind the scenes – and said our world is run by mobsters and mafia style governments. (My conclusion is that the people cannot see how their life source is nothing more than feeding those at the top. Once your work years are done, you are considered expendable and useless.) Feel free to download and reshare.

Here is the first letter she wrote. I encourage you to visit her website and make up your own minds.

Senator RIchard G. Lugar
306 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, D. . 20510-1401

Dear Senator Lugar,

December 28, 2006

As a member of the World Bank’s Legal Department for twenty years, and a
member of the DC Bar, I am obligated by the DC Rules of Professional Conduct to
report a weak control culture in the Bank. On June 2,2004 I informed tne Audit
Committee of the Board of Executives Director about sensitive governance issue
concerning interference in the Board’s access to information. The Operation Evaluations
Department refused to reveal to the Board the role of the Bank’s poor supervision of the
Philippine Banking Sector Reform Loan in the corrupt take-over of the second largest
bank in the Philippine resulting in a 550 million banking failure, cancellation of $200
million from the Bank’s loan to the Philippine, and cancellation of $200 million in
co-financing from Japan.

Two of the Bank’s former Ethics Officer tried in vain to protect me from
retaliation for reporting the lapse in internal controls. Anita Baker placed my divisIon
chief. Mohan Gopal, on mandatory administrative leave for his retaliation against me.
After Jacqueline Gates replaced Anita Baker, Ethic Officer, she asked the Institutional
Integrity Department (INT) and the Human Resource Department (“HRD”) to end the
retaliation, then both INT and HRD refused. Ms. Gates resigned in frustration. I have
reported the risk to the reputation of the U for probity in it oversight of the Ban to
Senior management ,the U.S. Executive Director’s office. and the Secretary
Department. Documented in the attached correspondence.

The Netherland constituency intervened in 2005, and the Audit Comittee
requested INT to look into the matter. The resulting INT report of October 31,2005 was
evasive and sought to discredit me rather than to address the serious issues which I raised. The Executive Directors are now requiring an audit of INT. The attached work program of the Board’s committee on Governance is aimed at achieving better access to
information and greater voice in Bank management.

The review of the bank’s conflict resolution system and policies for protection of
whistleblowers, mandated by US law, is proceeding in a closed process that exclude.
the Board, after a task force with a broader mandate that would have consisted of former
members of the Board was rejected. I learned yesterday from the Staff Association that
the new whistleblower rule had been finalized without provision for review of the final
draft by the Board or by experts.

Mr, Eckhard Deutscher, Dean of the Board, has informed me that the World Bank Board is treated like a mushroom, “kept in the dark, and covered with fertilizer,” It is necessary for the review of the Bank’s conflict resolution system to be put on track to achieve consensus for much needed reform in order to minimize risk to the Bank,

I sought to mediate my personnel grievances with HRS, but was referred instead to the Bank’s Appeals Committee and the Administrative Tribunal. The performance of the Administrative Tribunal on my case documents the weaknesses in the Bank’s conflict resolution system, HRS is refusing to mediate and demanding for me to leave the Bank in July, 2007. If I am required to leave the Bank, this will dissuade any other employee who would report serious internal problems from establishing a direct line of communication with the Board.

I am currently working with Kevin Kellum on the Farm Journal forum to be held
in December 2007, I sincerely hope that you will help me to remain at the Bank so that I can continue my work on RULE OF LAW.

Summary of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man

About John Perkins: Author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man

John Perkins was for many years one of the world’s top economists. He worked directly with the heads of the World Bank, IMF, and other global financial institutions. He quit this work in the 1980s because morally and ethically, he felt it was wrong to play such a key role in creating world empire at the expense of the less advantaged around the world.

After being persuaded and even bribed not to write a book about his experiences, Perkins states, “When 9/11 struck, I had a change of heart.” The book, Confessions of an Economic Hitman, spent many weeks on amazon.com’s bestseller list and has been widely acclaimed. Below is a summary of this landmark book and ideas on how you can help to build a brighter future for us all.

Note: For an excellent, engaging two-minute video summary of Perkins’ story, click here.
General Overview

Confessions of an Economic Hit Man is John Perkins’ fast-paced autobiography, which reveals his career as an economist for an international consulting firm. Perkins says he was actually an “Economic Hit Man.” His job was to convince countries that are strategically important to the United States to accept enormous loans for infrastructure development and to make sure that the lucrative projects were contracted to U.S. corporations.

Perkins takes the reader through his career and explains how he created economic projections for countries to accept billions of dollars in loans they surely couldn’t afford. He shares his battle with his conscience over these actions and offers advice for how Americans can work to end these practices which have directly resulted in terrorist attacks and animosity towards the United States.

What Is An Economic Hit Man?

Perkins defines economic hit men as “highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars. They funnel money from the World Bank, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and other foreign ‘aid’ organizations into the coffers of huge corporations and the pockets of a few wealthy families who control the planet’s natural resources.

Their tools include fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, and murder. They play a game as old as empire, but one that has taken on new and terrifying dimensions during this time of globalization.”

In Perkins’ case, he was hired as an economist for the international consulting firm of Chas. T. Main, Inc. (MAIN). He was told in confidential meetings with “special consultant” to the company Claudine Martin that he had two primary objectives:

  1. He was supposed to justify huge loans for countries. These loans would be for major engineering and construction projects, which were to be carried out by MAIN and other U.S. companies such as Bechtel, Halliburton, Stone & Webster and Brown & Root.
  2. He was supposed to help bankrupt the countries that received these loans after the U.S. companies involved had been paid. This would make sure that these countries would remain in debt to their creditors and would then be easy targets when the U.S. needed favors such as military bases, UN votes and access to natural resources like oil.

Perkins’ job was to produce economic growth projections that would make the case for a variety of major projects. If the U.S. decided to lend a country money, Perkins would compare the economic benefits of different projects such as power plants or telecommunications systems. He would then produce reports that showed the economic growth the country would experience due to these projects. These economic growth projections needed to be high enough to justify the loans. Otherwise, the loans would be denied.

The gross national product (GNP) was always the most important factor in these economic projections. The project expected to increase the GNP the most would be chosen. In the cases where there was only one project under consideration, it needed to be shown that the project would greatly benefit the GNP. Luckily for the economic hit man, GNP figures can be quite deceptive. “For instance, the growth of GNP may result even when it profits only one person, such as an individual who owns a utility company, while the majority of the population is burdened with debt.”

All of these projects were meant to make huge profits for the contractors. The U.S. engineering and construction companies involved would be assured of great wealth. At the same time, a few wealthy families and influential leaders in the receiving countries would become very happy and very rich thanks to these loans. The leaders of these countries would also have bolstered political power because they were credited with bringing industrial parks, power plants and airports to their people.

The problem is that these countries simply cannot handle the debt of these loans and their poorest citizens are deprived of health, education and other social services for several decades as these countries struggle economically to overcome their huge debts. Meanwhile, the huge American media conglomerates portray these projects as favors being provided by the United States. American citizens in general have no trouble believing these messages, and in fact are led to perceive that these actions are unselfish acts of international goodwill.

Ultimately, due to the large debts, the U.S. is able to draw on these countries for political, economic and military favors whenever desired. And of course, the U.S. corporations involved with the expensive projects become extremely wealthy.

The U.S. Government’s Role

Economic hit men [EHM] don’t actually work for a United States government organization such as the Central Intelligence Agency. The risk with such a direct association is obvious. For example, if an EHM was working to put a country in debt to the U.S. with the main reason being for favorable military and political positions against the Soviet Union, the Soviet Union would be quite likely to take military action against the U.S. if that EHM were found to be working for the U.S. government. In the 1960s, America found a way to use economic hitmen without directly implicating Washington.

It was during the 1960s that we saw the empowerment of international corporations and multinational organizations such as the World Bank. This allowed for governments, corporations and multinational organizations to form mutually beneficial relationships. United States intelligence agencies were able to use these relationships to their advantage.

Government organizations such as the National Security Agency (NSA) were now able to screen for potential economic hitmen (as they did with Perkins) and then have them hired by international corporations such as MAIN.

“These economic hitmen would never be paid by the government; instead, they would draw their salaries from the private sector. As a result, their dirty work, if exposed, would be chalked up to corporate greed rather than to government policy. In addition, the corporations that hired them, although paid by government agencies and their multinational banking counterparts (with taxpayer money), would be insulated from congressional oversight and public scrutiny, shielded by a growing body of legal initiatives, including trademark, international trade, and Freedom of Information laws.”

Perkins’ Story of Being Recruited as an Economic Hit Man

Perkins married a former college classmate in 1967. A good friend of her father’s, referred to as “Uncle Frank”, was a top-echelon executive at the NSA. Uncle Frank immediately took a liking to Perkins and informed him that a job with the NSA would make him eligible for draft deferment, meaning he could avoid fighting in the Vietnam War.

After extensive interviews with the NSA, Perkins was offered a job, but declined it to instead join the Peace Corps. Surprisingly, Uncle Frank supported this decision, largely because it meant that Perkins would have the opportunity to go to Ecuador and live with the indigenous people of the Amazon region.

It was with the Peace Corps in Ecuador when a vice president of Chas. T. Main, Inc. approached Perkins about working for MAIN. The man explained that he sometimes acted as an NSA liaison, which made this job opportunity a perfect fit for Perkins, who had intended on accepting the NSA job when his Peace Corps tour was over.

Upon returning to the U.S., Perkins was hired as an economist for MAIN. He was told that MAIN’s primary business was engineering, but that their biggest client, the World Bank, had insisted that the company keep economists employed in order to produce the “critical economic forecasts used to determine the feasibility and magnitude of engineering projects.”

Shortly after being hired, Perkins was trained confidentially by Claudine Martin, a special consultant to MAIN. It was Martin who explained to Perkins what his real job was. It was Martin who explained that he was now an “Economic Hit Man” and that once he accepted this job, he could never leave it.


Perkins’ first assignment took him took to Indonesia. Indonesia was an oil-rich country and had been described as “the most heavily populated piece of real estate on the planet.” Perkins’ job was to produce very optimistic economic forecasts for the country, showing that by building new power plants and distribution lines, the country’s economy would explode. These projections would allow USAID and international banks to justify huge loans for the country, which would then be paid to U.S. corporations to build the projects.

In 1971, Indonesia had become even more important to the U.S. in its battle against Communism. Potential withdrawl from Vietnam had the U.S. worried about a domino effect of one country after another falling under Communist rule. Indonesia was viewed as the key. If the U.S. could gain control of Indonesia (with the debts that would incur thanks to the loans for these huge projects), they believed it would help ensure American dominance in Southeast Asia.

While spending three months in Indonesia to conduct interviews and study the economic potential for the country, Perkins was exposed to the drastic discrepancy between the wealthy and the extremely poor in Indonesia. While there were certainly signs of a striving economy with first-class hotels and mansions, Perkins also personally saw the tragic side of Indonesia where women and children bathed in wretched, sewer-filled water and beggars packed the streets. He also met some of the country’s native citizens and learned of their resentment of American greed and extravagance in the face of their starving children.

These close encounters with the Indonesians created a struggle of conscience for Perkins. He wondered if American capitalism was really the answer for the people of Indonesia. He wondered if the population as a whole would really benefit from the infrastructures the U.S. wanted to build in Indonesia, or would it only be a wealthy few who became even wealthier while the rest of the country became more entrenched in poverty and became even more anti-American?

While conducting his studies in Indonesia, Perkins was encouraged by his superiors to create strong forecasts for economic growth. He was told that growth rates of 17 percent per annum were expected. Also providing economic forecasts for MAIN was an older employee named Howard Parker. Parker told Perkins not to be pressured by his superiors, he told him not to buy into the game, not to create unrealistic projections. He told Perkins that the electrification project could not create economic growth rates of more than 7-9 percent.

Conversations with Parker led to more conscience battles for Perkins. Ultimately, he told himself that the decision wasn’t really his to make, it would be up to his bosses and they could simply choose between his high economic forecast and Parker’s lower forecast. When the final projections were presented to the executives at MAIN, Perkins’ figures pleased his bosses with 17-20 percent growth rate projections while Parker’s forecast came in at eight percent. Parker was promptly fired and Perkins was promoted to Chief Economist at MAIN and received a nice raise.


In 1972, Perkins was sent to Panama to close the deal on MAIN’s master development plan with the country. “This plan would create a justification for World Bank, Inter-American Development Bank, and USAID investment of billions of dollars in the energy, transportation, and agricultural sectors of this tiny and very crucial country. It was, of course, a subterfuge, a means of making Panama forever indebted and thereby returning to its puppet status.”

Again, Perkins experienced the enormous differences between the wealthy and the poor. However, in Panama, the differences were most extreme in one area, the Canal Zone. In the Canal Zone, Americans lived in beautiful homes and enjoyed golf courses and first class shopping. Just outside of the Canal Zone, Panamanians lived in wooden shacks and among overflowing sewage. These harsh differences created high levels of animosity between the Americans living in the Canal Zone and the natives of Panama. It was not uncommon to see graffiti messages demanding that the U.S. leave Panama.

On his trip, Perkins met with Panama’s president and charismatic leader, Omar Torrijos. Perkins was very impressed with Torrijos and became friends with the leader. Torrijos was well aware of the EHM practices and knew fully how the game was played. He knew that he could become a very wealthy man by cooperating with the U.S. companies that wanted to build their projects in his country, but he worried about Panama losing its independence and not taking care of its many citizens living in poverty.

Torrijos made a peculiar deal with Perkins and MAIN. He wanted Panama to take back control of the Panama Canal and in doing so he wanted to build a more efficient canal, a sea-level one without locks that would allow for bigger ships. The Japanese, the Canal’s biggest clients, would be interested in financing this construction, which would anger Bechtel Group, Inc. Bechtel was a company closely connected to Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford and George H.W. Bush.

Omar Torrijos was concerned that these actions might send the wrong signals internationally. He wanted to make sure that Panama was recognized as an independent country and was not dictated by Russia, China or Cuba. He did not want Panama to be perceived as against the United States. Instead, he wanted it known that they were simply protecting the rights of the poor.

Torrijos did want to invest in huge advancement projects in electricity, transportation and communications for Panama, but he wanted to make certain that these projects benefited his entire country, including those living in extreme poverty. To do so would require huge amounts of money from the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank. Torrijos worried that his commitment to taking back the Canal would anger the top people at Bechtel so much that it would make it nearly impossible to achieve his plans for these projects.

So, Torrijos made a deal with Perkins and MAIN. He told Perkins that if he could secure the financing for these projects, MAIN could have all the work they wanted on this master development plan. Perkins agreed to the deal and would do Torrijos’ bidding.

Saudi Arabia

In response to the power of the international oil companies, which collaborated to hold down petroleum prices, a group of oil-producing countries formed OPEC in the 1960s. The huge impact OPEC was capable of became evident to the world with the 1973 oil embargo. This embargo was a result of the United States’ support of Israel when Egypt and Syria launched attacks on the country.

As the U.S. provided Israel with more financial aid, Saudi Arabia and other Arab oil producing countries imposed a total embargo on oil shipments to the U.S. While the embargo was short-lived, its impact was huge as Saudi oil prices jumped from $1.39 per barrel on January 1, 1970 to $8.32 on January 1, 1974.

As a result, Wall Street and Washington became obsessed with protecting American oil supplies and the U.S. was forced to recognize Saudi Arabia’s importance to its economy. “For Saudi Arabia, the additional oil income resulting from the price hikes was a mixed blessing.” Suddenly, the country’s conservative religious beliefs were being replaced with a sense of materialism.

Washington recognized this movement and negotiated with Saudi Arabia for assurance that there would never again be an oil embargo from the country. The result of these negotiations was the United States-Saudi Arabian Joint Economic Commission, known as JECOR. The unprecedented agreement was the opposite of the norm, where countries had to borrow from the U.S. until it could never get out of that debt. Instead, this agreement relied on Saudi Arabia’s own money to hire American firms to build up the country.

The U.S. wanted Saudi Arabia to guarantee to maintain oil supplies at prices that would be acceptable to the U.S. and its allies. Due to Saudi Arabia’s vast petroleum supplies, this guarantee would protect the U.S. even if other countries threatened oil embargos.

In exchange for the guarantee, the U.S. offered the House of Saud a commitment to provide complete political and military support (this would guarantee that the royal family would continue to rule in Saudi Arabia). The condition would be that the Saudis buy U.S. government securities with their petrodollars and that the interest earned on these securities would be used to pay U.S. companies to convert Saudi Arabia into a modern industrial power.

Perkins was brought in as an adviser in the early stages of these negotiations. His job was “to develop forecasts of what might happen in Saudi Arabia if vast amounts of money were invested in its infrastructure, and to map out scenarios for spending that money.” He was told that not only would this job result in huge profits for MAIN, but that it was also a matter of national security.

This job was different for Perkins as the final objective was not to burden Saudi Arabia with debts it could never repay, but instead to “assure that a large portion of petrodollars found their way back to the United States.” Basically, MAIN and other U.S. corporations needed to convince Saudi Arabia of the importance and benefits of transforming their country to a more modern nation. This would ultimately make Saudi Arabia more dependent on U.S. corporations and make U.S. corporations extremely wealthy.

For his part, Perkins convinced a key player within the House of Saud, a man he calls Prince W., that these projects would benefit his country as well as him personally. Perkins was able to eventually persuade Prince W. by arranging for a beautiful prostitute to live with him. By arranging for the prostitute to live with Prince W., Perkins was able to gain his trust and eventually convinced him of the value of the deal. The entire package was finally approved by the royal family of Saudi Arabia and MAIN was rewarded with one of the first highly lucrative contracts, which was actually administered by the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

“The deal between the United States and Saudi Arabia transformed the kingdom practically overnight.” It also marked the beginning of an ongoing relationship between the House of Saud, the bin Laden family and the Bush family, which benefited greatly from a financial standpoint thanks to the deal.

Struggling with His Conscience

Perkins saw his career take off as he was promoted again and became the youngest partner in the history of MAIN. He would go on to head major projects all over the world while taking home a huge salary. However, Perkins could not stop struggling with his conscience over the negative outcomes he believed he was causing as an EHM. In 1978 and 1979, the consequences of EHM empire building became clear to Perkins by what he saw happen in Iran.

While the U.S. had supported the shah, the results had led to class wars and passionate animosity towards the “corporatocracy” being implemented in Iran. Perkins had seen this hostility first-hand in several of the countries where he had helped to create similar situations with his EHM practices. Citizens of these countries hated U.S. policy and blamed it for their corrupt leaders and despotic government. In Iran, the situation escalated and led to the shah fleeing the country for his own safety and Iranians storming the U.S. Embassy and taking 52 hostages.

It was then that Perkins fully realized that “the United States is a nation laboring to deny the truth about its imperialist role in the world” and he became overwhelmed with guilt over his role in this global movement. Perkins sank into a depression and quit his job at MAIN in 1980.

The Impact of the Economic Hit man Continues

Perkins would continue to be haunted by the impact of economic hitmen even as he started his own company (a company that committed to producing environmentally friendly electricity), did special consulting for MAIN and other corporations, and became involved with nonprofit organizations and their efforts to work with and help indigenous people in Latin America.

In 1981, Perkins became deeply disturbed by the death of his friend and the leader of Panama, Omar Torrijos. Perkins believes that his friend Torrijos’ death in a plane crash was a CIA assassination because of his positions on the Panama Canal (Torrijos had achieved his goal of taking back the Canal) and his unwillingness to cooperate with American corporations.

Torrijos was replaced by Manuel Noriega, who “became a symbol of corruption and decadence.” Eventually, in 1989, the United States attacked Panama. The reigns of power were returned to the pre-Torrijos oligarchy, which had served as U.S. puppets from the time when Panama was torn from Columbia until Torrijos took over.

Perkins also watched closely throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s as the U.S. tried to get Iraq and Saddam Hussein to buy into the EHM scenario as Saudi Arabia had done before. Hussein refused and when he invaded Kuwait, the U.S. wasted little time and attacked Iraq. The economic hitmen failed again in their efforts following the invasion of Iraq and in 2003, the U.S. invaded Iraq once again.

Perkins began to write Confessions of an Economic Hit Man on several occasions, but stopped due to bribes or threats. But after 9/11, Perkins knew he could no longer wait and felt he had to expose these practices and the devastating consequences they create.

What to Do Now

Perkins now spends his life trying to educate people about the role of the economic hit man and how we can end their practices and achieve more global peace and prosperity by transforming our institutions. He believes “we have convinced ourselves that all economic growth benefits humankind, and that the greater the growth, the more widespread the benefits.” We must realize that the American capitalism we are trying to push on other countries may not be what’s best for the rest of the world.

We can’t just blame this movement on a conspiracy. “The empire depends on the efficacy of big banks, corporations, and governments – the corporatocracy. This corporatocracy is ourselves – we make it happen – which, of course, is why most of us find it difficult to stand up and oppose it. We cannot bring ourselves to bite the hand of the master who feeds us.”

Perkins offers several ways to help stop “the corporatocracy and to end this insane and self-destructive march to global empire.”

  • Read between the lines of each and every media report and help others do the same. The majority of our media outlets – newspapers, magazines, publishing houses, television stations, radio stations, etc. – are owned by huge international corporations and these corporations aren’t afraid to manipulate the news they deliver. Always seek the truth and encourage others to do the same.
  • Cut back on oil consumption and shopping. When you are shopping, be very aware of the products you buy and the companies you’re supporting.
  • Downsize your personal possessions, including your home, your car and your office.
  • Protest against unfair free trade agreements.
  • Protest against companies that exploit desperate people in sweatshops.
  • Protest against companies that pillage the environment.
  • Look for ways to educate others about what is going on in the world. This can be done by writing letters and emails to friends, newspapers, school boards and local organizations.
  • And finally, ask yourself the following questions:

Why have I allowed myself to be sucked into a system that I know is unbalanced?

What will I do to help our children, and all children everywhere, to fulfill the dream of our Founding Fathers, the dream of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness?

What course will I take to end starvation, and make sure there is never again a day like September 11th?

How can I help our children understand that people who live gluttonous, unbalanced lives should be pitied but never, ever emulated, even if those people present themselves, through the media they control, as cultural icons and try to convince us that penthouses and yachts bring happiness?

What changes will I commit to making in my attitudes and perceptions?

What forums will I use to teach others and to learn more on my own?

These are the essential questions of our time

Recovering Buried Gold in the Philippines and Indonesia; Chinese Bankers and Corrupt Federal Government

Dear Pat,

What is going on: the whole world is bringing the gold that was hidden in Indonesia and the Philippines during World War II out of the ground.  The Chinese bankers are in charge of this. http://www.courthousenews.com/2011/12/05/41930.htm These Chinese bankers are now poised to reset the US dollar using this gold, and they want to take over the government of our country, which has been weakened, corrupted, and compromised by the owners of the Federal Reserve.

We are facing martial law because we have not done what Hungary did: kick out the Federal Reserve and the Bank for International Settlements.  http://the-tap.blogspot.com/2013/08/hungary-issues-debt-free-money.html

Look at page 16 of this http://kahudes.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/board-of-governors.pdf  The man at the US Treasury whom I wrote about the corruption at the World Bank was also involved in removing Ferdinand Marcos’ heirs, and appointing the UN to oversee gold that was buried in the Philippines during World War II.  See pages 14 and 15  http://www.scribd.com/doc/157112633/Social-Justice-Doctrine-the-New-World-Order-and-Operation-Heavy-Freedom

and look at the study at the bottom of my letter to Chief Justice Roberts: http://kahudes.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/ljudicialconference1.pdf

Dear Winston,

A few months ago you kindly offered to be of assistance.  I have been asking for an appointment with the Office of International Treasury Control and with James McBride and have not heard back.  There seems to be some confusion about whether it is possible to access the Global Accounts at this time.

I spoke yesterday with an authorized signatory on the master account, who inherited his signatory authority from the estate of Ferdinand Marcos.  I spoke the day before that with descendants of the Borci family, who are Elders in the Philippines. These gentlemen agree that there can be no settlement of the Global Accounts without addressing corruption in the Bretton Woods institutions and the rest of the international financial system at large.  The Vatican cannot deputize James McBride in order that Mr. McBride simply replaces the super entity identified in ”The network of global corporate control”, ETH Zurich, published September 2011 available here:  http://arxiv.org/PS_cache/arxiv/pdf/1107/1107.5728v2.pdf without regard for the underlying humanitarian global assistance purposes of the Global Accounts.

Dear Lori,

Thanks for your email.  I am copying you on an email I just
sent to a person who wrote me from Holland, with a translation.  We
simply have to get the word out.  The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs,

National Governors Association, National Association of Counties, National

Association of Attorneys General, International Organization of Supreme

Audit Institutions and International Organization of Securities Commissions

and a few others are copied.

I have been in frequent communication with the National
Advisory Council on International Monetary and Financial Policies
concerning unresolved massive fraud and corruption in the
international financial system.
https://s3.amazonaws.com/khudes/judicialconference.pdf and

I have also been in frequent communication with Governors
Martin O’Malley, Terry Branstad, and the rest of the Governors on
the Council of Governors http://www.nga.org/cms/CoG to end the massive

corruption that is lowering the US credit rating, damaging the relationship

of the United States with our allies, and undermining the US dollar.
https://s3.amazonaws.com/khudes/fdod9.docx and

There is no authority to transfer international reserve
currency status from the US dollar to other currencies.

Moreover, the Governors owe an explanation to the
citizens of these United States how they plan to perpetrate the
fraud upon US citizens by continuing to allow the legal fiction
introduced after the third bankruptcy of the United States in 1933.
That was when the United States pledged all present and future
properties, assets and labor of U.S. citizens to the Federal
Reserve System.  Unincorporated federal territories, national park
forests, birth certificates, and nonprofit orginizations were also
pledged.  Our birth certificates were used as Manufacturers’
Certificates of Origin, and the states in which we were born were
listed as the “port of entry.”  Our identities were used as
FICTITIOUS PERSONS by writing our names in ALL CAPS, instead of
writing our names in lower case to indicate real, living people.
That is how U.S. citizens became collateral against the federal

When you list Question Reference #130705-000291 as solved, does
this mean that I have the support of the US Department of Defense?
If this is not the case, please correct my email today to the
President of the UN General Assembly, copied to the General
Committee and the Chairpersons of the six Main Committees of the
General Assembly concerning an advisory opinion from the
International Court of Justice on the authority of the World Bank’s

Does Standard Insurance Company bond the honesty and faithful discharge by Judge S.R. Winfield of her duties?  I intend to file a lien against Judge Winfield’s bond.  Judge Winfield has refused the second motion to seal my arrest record, despite the fact that this has rendered the World Bank ineligible for the US contribution to the World Bank capital increase pursuant to § 7082 of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2012 (Pub. L. 112-74) available here:  http://www.whistleblower.org/storage/documents/whistleblowerlanguageinHR2055.pdf  Judge Winfield’s order states untruthfully “The MPD officers asked defendant to leave the premises, but she refused.”

I am informing the World Bank’s Executive Directors and the Chairman of the World Bank’s Development Committee by copy of this email, in order that they can take appropriate steps to shield the World Bank from a corrupt business environment.  https://s3.amazonaws.com/khudes/appeal135.DOCX

This is my interview with Karen Hudes the Whistleblower from the World Bank. This is a wide ranging discussion covering her time at the World Bank and what led her to blow the whistle on the corruption she found there. In the process her view of the worldwide corruption widened to include governments and the overall monetary system.

We discuss the ‘backwardization’ of gold, the manipulation of the dollar and the need to replace the current fiat system with a gold or asset backed currency and the plans of the cabal to create chaos and institute the NWO.
