Forum Post: The World needs Occupy Wall Street...now

This content is user submitted and not an official statement

Karen Hudes has been discussed on this forum for over a month. She continues to try to tell the world that while working at the World Bank, she discovered a cover-up of corruption. This is not Ho-Hum corruption, it is a World Mafia.

I have been waiting for Karen Hudes story to be debunked, or denials of any kind, but instead there are more interviews from alternate media. Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone magazine and The Guardian newspaper have publicly ignored her along with all of the MSM.

Karen Hudes is FOR online protests but believes physical marches will allow the government to justify martial law.

Occupy should be leading the way for this online protest. Here is a second interview with this radio program, only a week ago.

''Lawlessness Is The New Normal'', by Paul Craig Roberts :

''In short, the governments of the countries on earth want Washington’s money and good graces more than they want truth and integrity or even their independence.

''In Europe headlines are that “NSA surveillance threatens the EU free trade deal” and “Merkel demands explanations.” The protests are the necessary public posturing of puppets and will be regarded as such by Washington. The French government says the trade talks should be temporarily suspended “for a couple of weeks to avoid any controversy.” However, the German government says, “We want this free trade agreement and we want to start the talks now.” In other words, what Merkel describes as “unacceptable Cold War-style behavior” is acceptable as long as Germany gets the free trade agreement.

''The lust for Washington’s money blinds Europe to the real consequences of the free trade deal. What the deal will do is to fold Europe’s economies into Washington’s economic hegemony. The deal is designed to draw Europe away from trade with Russia, just as the Trans-Pacific Partnership is designed to draw Asian countries away from China and fold them into US-structured relationships. These deals have little to do with free trade and everything to do with US hegemony.

''These “free trade” deals will commit the European and Asian “partners” to support the dollar. Indeed, it is possible that the dollar will supplant the euro and Asian currencies and become the monetary unit of the “partners.” In this way Washington can institutionalize the dollar and protect it from the consequences of the printing press that is being used to boost the solvency of banks too big to fail and to finance never-ending federal budget deficits.'' Excerpted from the above important link. Also consider :

Thanx for persisting with the Karen Hudes story 'windy' and I append the article above to facilitate some 'dot connecting' with the things Karen Hudes alludes to & in honesty ''The world needs O.W.S.'' - period.

Shadz it struck me that Europe, Russia, and Asian "partners" are not necessarily under the US thumb, but true partners aware of a plan that enriches them along with the US. It's all the same group! It's just business!

''We Are All Aboard the Pequod'', by Chris Hedges :

''The most prescient portrait of the American character and our ultimate fate as a species is found in Herman Melville’s “Moby Dick.” Melville makes our murderous obsessions, our hubris, violent impulses, moral weakness and inevitable self-destruction visible in his chronicle of a whaling voyage. He is our foremost oracle. He is to us what William Shakespeare was to Elizabethan England or Fyodor Dostoyevsky to czarist Russia.

''Our country is given shape in the form of the ship, the Pequod, named after the Indian tribe exterminated in 1638 by the Puritans and their Native American allies. The ship’s 30-man crew—there were 30 states in the Union when Melville wrote the novel—is a mixture of races and creeds. The object of the hunt is a massive white whale, Moby Dick, which, in a previous encounter, maimed the ship’s captain, Ahab, by biting off one of his legs. The self-destructive fury of the quest, much like that of the one we are on, assures the Pequod’s destruction. And those on the ship, on some level, know they are doomed - just as many of us know that a consumer culture based on corporate profit, limitless exploitation and the continued extraction of fossil fuels is doomed.'' and ...

''The Vanishing Rights of the American Citizen'', by Larry Chin :

''Recent events merely serve as reminders of what has already been lost.A police state already flourishes within US borders. As the Edward Snowden affair rudely underscores, the NSA and the CIA have the world under surveillance, but on a scale and depth even beyond Snowden’s own whistleblowing revelations. As demonstrated by the mobilization of force in the wake of the Boston bombing, the country can be locked down the moment there is an order from the Homeland Security apparatus.

''This is how an empire in decline, facing world resource scarcity and the sunset of its global petroleum-based system, maintains control. This is how a militarized national security and war machine keeps its citizens monitored and surveilled, shackled, and pacified. And without a vote, politically silenced.'' and finally :

"Independence Day Greetings to Edward Snowden'', by Stephen M. Walt :

''The United States can no longer protect the country's security with a citizen militia, of course, and a permanent defense establishment has become a necessary evil in the competitive world of contemporary international politics. But the Snowden affair reminds us that large and well-funded government bureaucracies have a powerful tendency to expand, to hide their activities behind walls of secrecy, and to depend on a cowed and co-opted populace to look the other way.

''Snowden may have broken the law, but so did the Founding Fathers when they issued that famous declaration 237 years ago. They did so in defiance of a powerful empire, just as Snowden did. The world is better off that they chose to defy the laws of their time, and Snowden's idealistic act may leave us better off too. I suspect Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and the rest of those revolutionaries might have understood.''

Some further links in support and solidarity :

There is really much value in what you say I think. The 0.01% Oligarchs, Plutocrats and Kleptocrats & Bankster Parasites, dynastic or otherwise - are pretty much the same the whole world over & are really in league with one another in order to maintain their venal, monopolistic positions with some occasional factional differences, whereby we, The Global 99% - chaff, struggle and try to resist under their greed & oppression. Karen Hudes is now shining a very rare light into some inner workings which is why no one wants to go near her.

This is indicated in the fact that the Russian government doesn't want Snowden kicking up dirt on the US government and that while European governments are portrayed in the media as expressing outrage in being spied upon, they nevertheless only request a guarantee of it not happening again (yeah, right) while seeking to detain planes to capture Snowden. They're all compliant on a global scale.

Completely agree. We must hope that there are enough people like karen Hudes that are not involved in the fraud willing to speak out against it. Difficult when the MSM censors everything and is controlled by the fraudsters.

It was uplifting to me to see Chris Hedges say that he had given up until Occupy happened. He felt the spirit of Occupy as many did.

Some commenter on the Rolling Stone article that Karen Hudes commented on noticed that "the Occupy people" were listed in the documentation karen Hudes provided. Even though he hadn't participated in Occupy, he obviously had respect for it, and openly wondered why Matt Taibbi wouldn't respond to Karen Hudes.

Occupy has enough respect to inform the masses online by continuing to expose the story of unimaginable corruption. The world needs the masses to know and the MSM is not going to provide the knowledge.

I'd love to see you and McConnell rolling around in the dirt pulling each other's hair.
