This may be one of the biggest news items in history yet it has been kept out of the mainstream media, away from you. Understanding why our lives are becoming smaller in Knysna, and our future darker, also requires a bigger context – this is it. After you read this, take a deep breath and resist the urge to dismiss it lightly (you may not think so, and may call me a loony-bin for saying it, but that’s a reaction you’ve been programmed to do).
Dr. Karen Hudes, ex-legal adviser to the World Bank, has become a whistleblower, reporting on the mass corruption that is affecting all of our lives. She may be the biggest whistleblower of all time. It’s not only her experience but what has happened to her that gives weight to her story i.e. she was barred from an economic meeting, sinisterly, by the US Secret Service. She was fired, like all World Bank whistleblowers before her. She was also illegally arrested for trespassing and held for an hour in a security vehicle before being taken to a police station.
Thankfully, there are some good politicians and they are fighting by her side now, for transparency and an end to the corruption that is ruling our lives.
She claims that:
- 43 000 transnational companies act as a single entity that controls almost everything.
- They possess 40% of the net worth of publicly traded corporations and 60% of the net earnings on the capital markets through their entwined directorships.
- The World Bank is their money launderer.
- A currency war is imminent and precious metals will return to back currency.
- That BRICS (of which South Africa is part of) is a reaction to their corruption, essentially an alternate world bank that will protect their resources. BRICS, with combined foreign-currency reserves of $4.4 trillion, has long called for an overall of the World Bank and the IMF (International Monetary Fund).
The Government Accountability project states that the “US Congress gave $35 billion in bailouts to international development banks last December. These multilateral development banks (MDBs) are immune from national oversight and laws, both in the USA and abroad. They are riddled with corruption and blatantly resist any meaningful internal governance reform. Experts estimate that between $26 –$130 billion have been lost to corruption at the World Bank alone since its founding, to say nothing of the other MDBs.”
Absorb what is happening in Cyprus; the illegal theft of investments on a massive scale. Let that be a warning to every reader. If it can happen to them, it can happen to you.
