Goodbye Karen Hudes, Hello Bill Still.

“A man’s judgment cannot be better than the information on which he has based it. Give him no news or present him only with distorted and incomplete data, with ignorant, sloppy or biased reporting, with propaganda and deliberate falsehoods, and you destroy his whole reasoning process and make him something less than a man.”

– Arthur Hays Sulzberger (1891-1968) Publisher, New York Times

abstract4-1Is it a big deal or not? Disappointment experienced after becoming aware that what one thought about another isn’t quite right is a hard thing to deal with. This blog has posted three interviews of Karen Hudes – a woman known as the “World Bank Whistleblower” –  since its inception in late May 2013. Ms. Hudes has appeared on many interview programs in the past few years, while many have come to view her as a “hero” for her fearless speech directed at the super-rich and powerful. This writer admits having an initial fascination with her, because her early accounts seemed to prove that she was a genuine and important whistleblower.

That fascination led to a willingness to stay tuned to her as time moved along, and intermittent listening to most recent interviews etc. Unfortunately that initial fascination has turned to disappointment, and the deleting of her posted interviews and web address. This personal transition in perceptions of Ms. Hudes was a slow one, and finally second thoughts and a few analytical questions made the break from Karen Hudes inevitable.

The first question that created doubt about her was “why has she never appeared on any panel discussions with monetary reform activists, attorney colleagues, and/or economics professors?” So, one looks at her public persona and finds that her appearances – including RT, but mostly internet radio/alternative news – are never ones where she engages in group discussions. She always appears alone with a lone interviewer.

Perhaps because she is an Ivy-league trained attorney with a degree from Yale, along with her study of economics in Europe, it became clear that interviewers were somewhat intimidated with her credentials, including her 20 years in the World Bank. As time went by, it became perceived that, because of that constant credential-intimidation, interviewers were derelict in their duty to dig deeper into Ms. Hudes’ claims. All along, with each of her hundreds of interviews, no host has asked the type of penetrating, intellectual questions which would force Ms. Hudes to prove her assertions.

Her talks have been a mixture of well-established facts and theories yet to become proven.

With regard to the unproven assertions, Ms. Hudes consistently mentions a German banker/lawyer by the name of Wolfgang Struck, who she claims has “signatory authority” somehow inherited from Philippines Dictator Ferdinand Marcos – an authority to sign for the release of the world’s entire gold supply. Visiting Ms. Hudes’ YouTube channel one finds she has three videos posted, none of which have become enriched by any appearance of Mr. Struck, the man who is, according to Ms. Hudes, just waiting patiently, in anxious anticipation, to sign off and release to humanity the hundreds of thousands of ounces of gold stashed in Switzerland banks, Philippines banks, and Hawaiian banks, while God only knows how many thousands more ounces were buried someplace in the Philippines.

Wolfgang Struck. The Karen Hudes mystery man.

If any reader has ever seen Mr. Struck speak on camera, or seen any photos of him, or heard him speak on a radio program – if you have any evidence of this “World’s Gold Controller” – please share your information. Most readers are familiar with an American union boss by the name of Jimmy Hoffa who mysteriously disappeared decades ago after last being seen in the Detroit, Michigan area – and never seen again. If by chance, Ms. Hudes, you come to these words, please answer this question, “Is Wolfgang Struck your version of Jimmy Hoffa?”

Ms. Hudes appeared on the scene some three or more years ago, yet has anyone seen her give an academic-like presentation? Has she ever been seen in front of a live audience? Has she ever collaborated with her fellow whistleblowers around the world in a Skype conference call of two hours or longer in duration, where her “team of whistleblowers” discuss specific actions to bring into reality their shared goals?

Just a few moments on the uneventful way I made the decision to separate from Karen Hudes. The son of Academy-award winning filmmaker Oliver Stone – Sean Stone – was spoken about by another talk show host. Without knowing that Ms. Hudes had been interviewed by him, I went to see what was happening lately on his (Sean Stone’s) “Buzzsaw” show. So, Ms. Hudes was appearing and I listened to it. The show began with talk about a so-called “secret constitution” of 1872, where the name of the original became changed from “Constitution of the United States” to “Constitution for the United States”, allegedly making the United States and each of the 50 states corporations.

Sean Stone:    “In 1871, the Constitution of the United States was changed, from the original constitution we all believe we live under, giving us certain rights and laws, and that was changed from the Constitution of the U.S. to the Constitution for the U.S., as a corporation. And that happened in 1871. Can you get into a little more detail as to what actually occurred at that point?”

Karen Hudes:    “Yes Sean, thanks for having me back, and that’s exactly what happened. In 1872, Benjamin Franklin went to Paris and was negotiating with the banks that were helping to finance the Revolutionary War, and, uh, so when the money came due and we couldn’t pay it, this was after the Civil War, which by the way was incited by the Jesuits, at the end of the Civil War, when Abraham Lincoln had issued greenbacks that were not going to carry interest to the bankers, he was assassinated by the Jesuits, and after they had taken care of that business, what they did was they set up this secret constitution, and under that constitution the U.S. Congress became managers of a corporation in the District of Columbia. The states were also turned into corporations, and this allowed the money that was being generated to go to the bankers to pay interest. The money went to the City of London which kept about 40% of it, and then it went off, 60% roughly, went off to the Vatican, the Jesuits, whose bankers were financing the United States. The Federal Reserve is for taking taxpayer money and transmitting it to the City of London and the Vatican.”

Ms. Hudes error of starting the interview by saying, “in 1872, Ben Franklin went to Paris” drew some not small notice from viewers in the comments section – Ben Franklin died in 1790. In the moments after she spoke that historical error, it seems Ms. Hudes has, in her legally trained mind, acknowledged to herself that she had made the date error. Evidence of this shows up/is seen at her first “uh”, where in her mind she comes to realize her mistake. But, instead of sensibly and properly issuing an immediate correction: “Did I say 1872, Sean? I meant 1782”, she makes sure to, a few words down the road, to squeeze in “this was after the Civil War, which by the way was incited by the Jesuits”.

Later on she tells Sean Stone that Franklin negotiated British/European financing for 100 years, resulting in the 1872 default by the American government and necessitating the “secret, second Constitution”.

Bill Still is a man who has researched, written, and produced documentary films on monetary reform for 34 years. He also listened to the talk, then commented on the Stone/Hudes interview: “Ben Franklin died in 1790. That’s all you have to know about Karen Hudes.”

Unfortunately it needs saying but, because of a great respect for Oliver Stone and a wish for his son’s success, Sean Stone allows Ms. Hudes to fill in the half-hour interview without pressing her with probative, get-to-the-essential-facts/proof of her claims questions – an all too universal interviewer style in every Karen Hudes appearance. Simply, no interviewer that I know of has ever directly challenged her to go any deeper, with requests for detailed and complex specifics to prove her – well – unproven claims.

The final straw came after listening to the Stone/Hudes interview when I listened to her on another show. Some internet surfers may have an awareness of these elongated human skulls that the Smithsonian evidently has in their safekeeping. Karen Hudes claims that there is a second human-type race/species walking this Earth, and that they are the “real World power behind the scenes”, essentially pulling the strings of the Jesuits and the Vatican. She gave her proof as coming from a Peruvian man who emailed her that he had seen one of these elongated-head species – “Homo Copensis” (or something) – inside a Peruvian bank while attending a personal loan-related meeting.

No photos, no nothing.

A search at Amazon books failed to find any authored by Karen Hudes.

The questions about who or what is behind or sponsoring her are in need of answers.

Probably the most disappointing aspect of all is that so many fine men and women journalists/alternative media hosts will now have to admit what has been confessed here. Karen Hudes took a lot of people on a long ride to nowhere. While disappointing for many who placed their hopes on her, probably the most descriptive word is saddening. One feels deep sadness for both her followers/believers and Karen Hudes herself.

Let’s hope Wolfgang Struck is happy in Peru.


That was not pleasant.

Reason for optimism, though.

Bill Still’s latest report goes into some important writings by a world-respected economist about monetary reform. In an April 24, 2014 article by Martin Wolf in the Financial Times, Mr. Wolf – according to Bill Still, a man who “when Martin Wolf speaks, the world’s economists listen” –  suggested the potential of major reform in the way money is created. For monetary reform activists like Mr. Still, Ellen Brown, and others, this development is very large and analogous to an historic scientific breakthrough that promises to change the world.

One has to feel good for Bill Still. Here’s a man who has had his nose to the grindstone researching monetary issues for some 34 years. He’s been like a voice crying out in the wilderness, like the man who has been crying wolf – except that the wolf has been real. He can take some satisfaction that his efforts may finally be paying off, that his very important work making films and writing for over three decades is finally producing fruit.

Malaysian Lawyer On MH370: One False Flag Too Many.

Posted April 29, 2014

by Jerry Alatalo

virginislands 444-1After reaching a place of admiration and respect for former Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad, it became an intent to find anything he has said recently, especially on Ukraine, Syria, and his overall views. While trying to hear his latest opinions, an interview of Matthias Chang on Malaysia Flight MH370 became available. Although the original intent was to hear from Dr. Mohamad, something pulled me to listen to this man Matthias Chang, who was unknown to me until now.

Perhaps it was a combination of delving into the missing flight for the first time and that the interview (not the one here, but another) was posted on Jeff Rense site, but at any rate I listened to the interview.

Perhaps sharing some of Mr. Chang’s biography would be in order before talking about his findings on MH370 (as a prelude, he will not be invited or appear on CNN for an interview – ever). It came as somewhat of a surprise to learn that Mr. Chang was at one time a secretary under Prime Minister Mohamad. He is 60 years-old and has been a practicing lawyer for some 30 years in Malaysia. He has been an anti-war activist for longer than that, was on the first ship in 2010 – the “Rachel Corrie” – that entered Palestinian waters since 1948, and was arrested and spent time in an Israeli prison.

He has written three books: “Fast Forward Future”, “Brainwashed For War”, and “The Shadow Moneylenders”. Going to’s books section there weren’t many reviews to look over, his first, “Fast Forward Future” (2006) received 10 reviews of which 6 rated 5-stars, 1 @ 4-stars, 1 @ 3-stars, and 2 @ 1-star. “Brainwashed” (2006) received 3 reviews total, all @ 5-stars. “The Shadow Moneylenders” received 1 review @ 5-stars.

Fast Forward Future reviews:

“American readers may take some getting used to the forthright treatment of issues like Zionism, but this is not mean-spirited. It intends to defend human values against a drive for fascist hegemony, and the author quotes many statements from prominent Zionists to support his views. The front cover description tries to sum it all up thus: ‘A riveting expose of the crimes, conspiracies, and con-artistry – with puppets Bush and Blair at the forefront – for total world domination by means of death, devastation, and destruction.”

“I found this book in Malaysia, a Muslim country where moderate Muslims are trying to reconcile their beliefs with the actions of Islamic fascists. The author is a suck-up and cipher to the former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir. Chuck full of inflammatory libels and lies, this book, a latter-day Protocols of the Elders of Zion, only serves to show how the United States constitution’s first amendment protects hate speech. If you want to see how low an author can go, buy this book.”

“Matthias Chang’s work is one of the most important and insightful books I have read in years. And I read all the time. Herein, Chang makes a thorough, scholarly, and lawyerly argument that the main problem freedom-loving people now face is the Zionist Anglo-American empire. This is simply the best and most complete explanation of current events I have yet seen. Unfortunately, this excellent book is not currently available on Amazon. But it can be acquired from American Free Press. Truth seekers are strongly advised to pick up this terribly important book. God bless.”

Brainwashed For War reviews:

“This is a terribly important book. A minor criticism that I must express is that there are really quite a few typographical and grammatical errors. But these, frequent though they are, do not distract from the overwhelming importance of the book. Read it. And be both informed, and enriched. Take care and God bless.”

“I honor this author with my highest compliment: he reminds me of Lee Kuan Yew. This is a man whose mind and spirit are fully developed, whose wisdom we can all embrace. I observe with all sincerity that this author shares with us a gigantic intellect that will be of lasting value to all of us who respect the integrity of the individual Asian nations and peoples, and who want peace and prosperity instead of war and poverty.”

The Shadow Moneylenders review:

“It is interesting to note that Mr. Chang was aboard the Rachel Corrie when boarded by Israeli pirates on June 5, 2010. If it were up to me Mr. Chang’s books would be required reading in every college throughout the United States. His meticulously researched books are fascinating exposes of the Zionist Anglo-American empire and the military-industrial-media complex as the diabolical forces behind the establishment of a totalitarian new world order.”

Matthias Chang talks about his prison experience in Malaysia:

“I went on a hunger strike.”

“I was lucky in a sense that, prior to my mission to Gaza, to face the “might” of Israel, I was held for contempt by a woman judge who abused power. I was fined and went to jail. As a matter of principle, to tell the powers-that-be, that you can abuse me and get away with it, what will happen to those who are not lawyers, who don’t have the means – they will trample. I went to jail and went on a hunger strike. In those moments, I went to my family and told them ‘you’ve got to be strong, because if you are weak I can’t take it. Support my stance.’ If I die, it’s God’s will. In that environment, you’ve got to be mentally very strong, you’ve got to have the utmost faith in yourself first and foremost.  Forget about those who support you. You have to have faith in yourself that you can go through the isolation and mental torture.”

“If you don’t believe the truth will out, you’re finished. You’ll be broke into pieces. So, you must have faith that truth will out, so even if you die, your death is not in vain. That is a very powerful mental element. My experience of jail in Malaysia prepared me for jail in Israel. We were the first ship to enter Palestinian waters since 1948.”

“You have to have faith in the cause.”

Interviewer: “Well Matthias, you have done the impossible before, as you have in Gaza, you fought many impossible cases here in Malaysia against the bad guys, we hope you can do the impossible again and – if those passengers are still alive – be one of those who can help achieve bringing them home.”

“God willing. I think what’s important now is, all of us I think, we should really mobilize public opinion. One too many false flags… one too many. I think we say enough’s enough. We should “Spring-clean our minds” and say false flags are real. It’s here. It will come again, and again. Enough is enough. The families aboard MH370 must say no closure until you know for a fact that they are dead. The weight of public opinion is very powerful.”

Matthias Chang is a lawyer who has been in the “business” for over thirty years in Malaysia. He has an association with Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, the now 89 year-old former 20-year Prime Minister of Malaysia – a man who embodies the highest qualities of leadership such as morality, honesty, and ethics. Although I have yet to verify, my guess is Matthias Chang was involved in the “Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal” of 2007, which concluded that George W. Bush and Tony Blair were guilty of war crimes. It would not be surprising to learn that Mr. Chang was also involved with “9/11 Revisited: Seeking the Truth”, also in Kuala Lumpur in 2012.

Perhaps the most disturbing facts he speaks to in the following address revolve around three separate published articles in Israeli newspapers – written by Israeli security experts – that assert Iranian hijackers were responsible for Flight MH370’s disappearance. Mr. Chang points out that these articles came out shortly after the flight disappeared. On a personal note, while viewing Al Jazeera news a few weeks ago, an Iranian official was on air for an appearance when the interviewer from Al Jazeera brought up the Iran hijacker “theory”. Let me say that the Iranian guest expressed his resentment in such a forceful way – directly saying that Al Jazeera would be held legally responsible for the slanderous and lying assertion – that, although I had no awareness of what the clash was about till this interview, was memorable and I made a note to find that short interview to learn what the issue was.

So, everyone knows about that old saying, “be careful what you wish for.” Matthias Chang makes the case that Malaysia Flight MH370 has to do with a “false flag” event to place Iran in the crosshairs of a planned operation leading to first, the manipulation of world public opinion to accept a military attack on Iran, then the actual military attack. Sitting in his Malaysia office, Mr. Chang issued a direct challenge to the writers of those Israeli articles suggesting an Iranian hijack operation. He does what any lawyer would do when confronted with the same situation. He does what men and women will after learning about those articles.

(Keep in mind that no other news outlet or government – only three Israeli newspaper articles – theorized Iranian hijack.)

He, and now you, asks those writers/Israeli experts: “Where is your evidence?”
