I’ve always liked former Senior Counsel of the World Bank, Karen Hudes, as evident in this 8-minute interview with RT’s Abby Martin (who I’ve also always liked) just two years ago:

I conclude her overarching claims of massive criminal fraud are valid (without investing the significant time to verify each and every subsidiary claim), and absolutely agree with her that Earth has a “hidden history” with compelling evidence (here, here, here, here). Indeed, I’ve worked to communicate her central points of corruption of our .01% “leaders,” and the simplicity to prove these obvious crimes centering in war, what we use for money, and corporate media lies.

I believe I summarize our messages as identical. To quote Karen:

Informed citizens demanding an end to the corruption will turn things around.

I also find with Karen that her unlawful termination in 2007 from the World Bank is what happens to honest people. Again to quote her:

We called in Alberto Bazzan, a human resources manager from IBM.  After about a year, Alberto came to me – this was when Jim Wolfensohn was the President of the World Bank – and said “Karen, it’s not working, I don’t get to see Jim Wolfensohn very often but whenever I do, if I tell him somebody should be promoted, that person gets fired.  If I tell him that somebody should be fired, that person gets promoted.”  Alberto also said, “I don’t know how much longer I’m going to last,” and sure enough; he got fired, too….There are other World Bank whistleblowers reporting the same problems as I did.  They have stories that are equally outrageous.  You cannot run a bank as if it were your personal slush fund.

After I wrote this article on the deadly-serious rush of current events that seem closing into endgame scenarios along with an excellent summary of US empire past and present, Karen responded in the comments and through e-mail of the importance to inform people about the “Global Debt Facility,” and in e-mail. From Karen:

Why are you spreading this information without informing people of the Global Debt Facility containing the world’s wealth and international monetary gold reserves that is administered by the World Bank and International Monetary Fund Board of Governors? Or the Global Currency Reset that has been agreed? Are you trying to create confusion and chaos?…

There is also an amnesty in effect to permit a transition.  Your article is so unhelpful that without a public acknowledgement of our correspondence and your attempt to deal with some of the issues I have raised I am going to call you out as a Network of Global Corporate Control disinformation agent.

Karen wrote to me with this link where her factual claims are best documented. When I asked her documentation of claims of amnesty, she provided this link of claimed negotiations.

Karen chose not to respond to my obvious question:

Please explain how my article which explains and documents current and past colonial terror is in any way “causing chaos” or “disinformation.” I am a National Board Certified Teacher in History, have an Ed.M from Harvard’s Graduate School of Education (gate-kept out of the Ph.D program, but that’s another story), and can assure you that I will debate anyone on the comprehensive factual validity of my work versus anyone else’s documentation from so-called “experts” writing our texts and news. Really, Karen, and again with all respect for all of us working for Earth’s dominated inhabitants of all species, and with tremendous empathy for the pressures we’re all under, my public articles and interviews are among the best anywhere to clearly and professionally communicate our status with endless unlawful Wars of Aggression, the fraud of debt being called “money” in the rigged casino of our economy, and corporate media disinformation (the .01% are the disinformers, not me).

Before I could read her documentation, Karen responded to my background work of monetary and banking reform, and CAFR reform. Karen:

Working for tens of trillions of funds to be released to We the People without getting rid of that scam called paper currency and outside of the Global Currency Reset? Where is this money coming from? The Global Debt Facility. Anyone trying to release the funds in the Global Debt Facility without dealing with the impending permanent backwardation of gold is part of the problem hastening another Dark Ages and not part of the solution. https://s3.amazonaws.com/khude… This tells me all I need to know about you. You are a Vatican agent.

I complained (see comments), and she doubled-down on her claims of my being a “Vatican agent,” along with accusing my friend and colleague Ellen Brown being the same.

Here’s my response to Karen, and really all of us working in good-faith effort to reveal the tragic-comedy of Earth’s history to begin building the brighter future we all know is possible:

  • Karen’s claims of a Global Currency Reset, Global Debt Facility, as well as other claims of gold holdings better than the plot of Goldfinger by researchers I respect like David Wilcock and Benjamin Fulford are best framed by David and Ben: they report in good-faith effort to vet factual accuracy amid disinformation, and to believe it only when we see it happen.
  • The hidden history of who really controls the .01% can be lawfully and most easily discovered with arrests of obvious leaders in government, banking/finance, corporate media for obvious crimes centering in war, money, and lies (4-part series on arrests with videos). I’ve been a leader since 2009 advocating Truth & Reconciliation to allow willing minions of the .01% to safely point to the facts in their areas of work. Truth will be stranger than fiction in this factual discovery (consider Jim Marrs’ multiple best-sellers, David Icke, Jordan Maxwell, wanttoknow.info’s documentation). Calling for arrests NOW is the only prudent citizen response in face of continuous and ongoing .01% policies of death, debt, and poverty that annually kill millions, harm billions, and loot trillions. The public education that Karen and I share is crucial, with demand for arrests as the lawful tool to stop outrageous crimes being the obvious citizen response. Karen’s apparent option to somehow encourage me to not communicate this point by somehow believing her testimony of “negotiated amnesty” is a ridiculous insult to the victims of these massive .01% crimes who suffer unimaginably in the literal billions of Earth’s poor. My response to Karen: deliver the amnesty and I’m all for it; until then, I will exercise my rights to use the lawful tools all of us have to demand all levels of US law enforcement and military to do the job they’re sworn to do.
  • Karen states that the Global Currency Reset is the “only real solution.” I agree that such policy to upgrade from the fundamental fraud we currently have to call debt its Orwellian opposite of “money” that locks We the People into debt slavery forever from adding negative numbers forever must happen, and is Emperor’s New Clothes obvious (browse these titles for various helpful angles to understand these mathematical and mechanical facts). This said, leaders like Ellen Brown and the Public Banking Institute, Stephen Zarlenga and the American Monetary Institute, and professional academics with lifetimes of experience studying history and mechanics are not “Vatican agents” (whatever that exactly means; Karen didn’t provide a definition of this term). With all respect to Karen’s work, like this awesome and bold challenge that seems similar to my attempts for criminal investigations of looted CAFR funds, we are willing right now to debate anyone at any level with what we claim are already known and historically tested solutions for OBVIOUS money mechanics solutions. With all respect, Karen, if your teams deliver on the gold, it should be used to maximize its properties as an element and never ever ever ever be linked to the value of what we use for money. OMG (oh my gold), this is absolutely obvious to not introduce a variable of a commodity to contaminate the value of what we really want: control of the supply and value of money. It’s only from tragic-comic historical failure that people like Ron Paul have surrendered the elegant solution of transparent money supply/value to hope that gold-linked money might somehow be better than what we have, despite the obvious evidence of roller coaster price swings in gold that would be linked to money. So, Karen, when your team delivers on public announcements and public work for transparent new monetary policy, I’m interested. Until then, those of us working to free the 99% currently used as debt slaves, I promise you with all my heart that I will use every resource I’m connected with to most accurately, passionately, and effectively communicate our current monetary facts, and what my colleagues and I factually assert as provable solutions to anyone caring to look at the facts.

Finally, points of the challenge of knowing our allies:

  • Karen and colleagues: anyone with any vision concludes that humans are so very limited in what we’re able to perceive of reality. We the People have been used as work animals on this planet for all recorded history simply because we’re so vulnerable to be manipulated into false perceptions. I’m not insulted by Karen calling me a “Vatican agent;” I have thankfully gained enough wisdom to only have empathy for all humans’ challenge to discern fact from deception. Karen and fellow humans: I am more of a partner for Earth’s success than you are able to imagine (this is true for anyone working in good-faith effort).
  • Karen has not invested the time to refute my conference paper summarizing my main work, and she probably should be working in other areas. And here’s the point: Karen’s reaction to attack me is without foundation of what those of us serious to prove what exists must always do: the work of refutation is to accurately summarize the factual claims of an “opponent,” then point-by-point document how they are factually wrong and/or lies of omission. Karen completely understands this as an attorney. Therefore, I suggest my approach to publicly communicate Karen’s work (I really appreciate her work), and allow people to invest their understanding as they see best. Anyone honest, as I factually assert I am, offers this public promise: if anyone finds any factual error and/or omission from my work, please inform me. I will correct it, thank the person for pointing it out, and apologize for my error.
  • We the People are under outrageous and tremendous pressure from ongoing .01% attacks that seem literally intent to kill perhaps 90% of us. Given human limitations of perception, we should all do our best to work together. My policy proposal is to demand arrests of obvious .01% criminal leaders, engage in factual discovery, and enact solutions as we best find them (much easier with a truthful media upon victory). Karen and whoever is welcome to disagree and pursue whatever other best pathways.

My immediate response is expressed best in just 90 seconds as former US Marine Ken O’Keefe powerfully states the “very obvious solutions” to US/UK/Israel unlawful Wars of Aggression: arrest the obvious criminal leaders (video starts at 20:51, then finishes this episode of Cross Talk):
