Whistleblower Karen Hudes: ‘How The Global Elite Rule The World’

21st Century Wire says…

Who really rules the world? This question is complex, but not impossible to understand…

In 2012, the Swiss Federal Institute in Zurich (SFI) released a comprehensive study entitled, “The Network of Global Corporate Control” which demonstrates how this relatively small consortium of corporations, and overwhelmingly dominated by mainly banks, actually run the world’s corporate daisy chain.

According to their study, approximately 147 corporations form a “super entity” and have control 40% of the world’s corporate economy. The centre of the cartel includes the following giants: Barclays, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase & Co, Vanguard Group, UBS, Deutsche Bank, Bank of New York Mellon Corp, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America Corp, and Société Générale.

Of course, it’s even deeper and more complex than that, but if you want to try an tame this beast intellectually, you have to start somewhere.

World Bank whistleblower Karen Hudes provides us with a glimpse into this mega-corporate mesh means that these giants command an overwhelming amount of power and influence over global markets and economic – as well as political affairs…

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.  Duringan 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 asthe 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…

    It’s too late, I am sorry, we are not going to be fine.

    • Carrie Gentry

      Dr. Skewer. My name is Carrie and I have seen exactly what is going on for some time. I would love to get Karen’s interview out to the American people on one or more of the major media networks. Do you know of a way we can accomplish this? I will help in anyway I can. It can’t be too late. We need to take our country back! My email is carriebeth702@comcast.net. Thank you.

        This has been being played upon us since the late 1800’s possibly earlier. At the point that everyone just started hearing about it 50-60 years ago and thought it was just a conspiracy theory would have been the time to jump in and fix it. It is so much already in place that about all we can do it be prepared. The Media is owned and ran by the global elite. That’s why you don’t see anything about what is being done already.

        • Carrie Gentry

          All of our greatest leaders saw this coming. Starting with Abe. Lincoln. We still must get this video out! ASAP!

        Do you work for comcast? It would be ironic if you did considering GE owns Comcast and Vanguard Group (mentioned above as main player of super entity) owns GE :O

    I was pursuing anyone that had written a book a few years before David Barker wrote his book, “Jubilee On Wall Street: An Optimistic Look at the Coming Stock Market Crash” in 1987. With only an engineering degree I could see that the whole corrupt international con game was coming to an end. Yeshua is our kinsman redeemer, in Leviticus. London bankers have been warmongers since 1652. A worldwide debt cancelling Jubilee is coming. Praise our Lord and Master.

    Samuel FB Morse saw this coming in 1835, wrote a book, “Foreign Conspiracy Against Liberties of the US”. John Robison saw it coming, wrote a book in 1798, “Proofs of a Conspiracy: …”. Other good books to read M.W. Walbert’s book in 1898, “The Coming Battle”, Eustace Mullins Book in 1981, “Secrets of the Federal Reserve”, William G. Carr’s book in 1952, “Pawns in the Game”. Be informed or participate helping to create the problem like my own mother.

    • Winston

      Samuel Morse also wrote a book, 1862, about the American people being deceived: “The Present Attempt to Dissolve the American Union.” Also worth the read is “Hope of the Wicked” by Ted Flynn.
