Who is Karen Hudes?
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
What did Karen Hudes blow the whistle on?
From Activist Post:
Whistleblower Reveals World Bank Corruption
Whistleblowers continue to endure an increasing level of targeting and prosecution by an administration that touts its commitment to transparency. Despite this, many brave insiders continue to come forward to reveal the extent of corruption at the highest levels.
The latest information comes from Karen Hudes, seen in the video below
with Sean Stone. Her bio highlights her 21-year experience at the World
Bank as Senior Legal Counsel:
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.
The World Bank is already notorious for its wide range of human rights violations, land-grab schemes,
environmental destruction and economic attacks on sovereign nations and
local communities. Hudes offers some additional details about what she
asserts is one single group controlling world financial markets
and media. She also offers names of people who were involved in
blackmail surrounding a 2007 prostitution scandal. Hudes has now been
charged by Attorney General Eric Holder with trespassing after being
arrested May 13th at an office of the World Bank.
It is worth noting that much of what Hudes discusses
from her perspective shows the level of compartmentalization that takes
place in large governmental organizations. For example, she states that
she believes the World Bank is "finally fulfilling its mandate" by
stopping the next world war. However, the deliberate destablization
campaigns with subsequent destruction and reconstruction projects, as
documented by other insiders such as John Perkins, call this idealistic
view into serious question. Hudes maintains that it is exactly this type
of corruption that is being rooted out, and why people like her are
Regardless of one's view of the World Bank as an institution, Hudes'
information highlights that there are people who get into this type of
work with good intentions, believing the propaganda they have been
given. At the very least, her assertion that there is a network of
insiders that will continue blowing the whistle about World Bank
corruption bears watching. Lastly, it is worth noting her comments on
the possibility of martial law in America and the steps being taken to
avoid it. Time will tell.
Executive Director of the Bill of Rights Defense Committee
Discussion centers around 'Does the rule of law still exist in America??'
Shahid Buttar, executive director, leads the Bill of Rights Defense Committee and the People’s Campaign for the Constitution (PCC)
in our efforts to defend civil liberties, constitutional rights, and
rule of law principles threatened within the United States by law
enforcement and intelligence agencies. He is a constitutional lawyer,
grassroots organizer, independent columnist, musician, and poet.
Before joining BORDC in 2009, Shahid directed a
national program to combat racial and religious profiling, after
serving for three years as associate director of the American
Constitution Society for Law & Policy. He previously pursued public
interest litigation (advancing marriage equality for same sex couples
and campaign finance reform) in private practice at Heller Ehrman LLP,
after receiving his J.D. from Stanford Law School in 2003, where he
served as executive editor of the Stanford Environmental Law Journal and
a teaching assistant for Constitutional Law. He graduated summa cum laude from Loyola University Chicago with a BA in political science and
creative writing in 2000, ten years after beginning college at the
University of Chicago and after a six-year career in financial services
to pay for school.
Shahid’s comments have been featured by news outlets including The Washington Post, The New York Times, USA Today, CNN, al-Jazeera, FOX News, Agence-France Presse, Huffington Post, Truthout, Democracy Now!,
and many others, including dozens of radio stations around the
country. He frequently addresses public audiences, such as elected
bodies, colleges, and law schools, including Stanford, UC-Berkeley,
UCLA, the University of Chicago, the University of Texas at Austin, and
In addition to his work leading BORDC, Shahid also serves on the advisory bodies of the Rights Working Group, the National Coalition to Protect Civil Freedoms, the National Campaign to Restore Civil Rights, and South Asian Americans Leading Together.
Shahid also supports populist constitutionalism as a independent columnist (writing for outlets including Huffington Post and Truthout, as well as the People’s Blog for the Constitution) community organizer, and hip-hop and electronica MC.
In his creative capacities as a poet and musician, Shahid has
performed around the world, co-founded several grassroots art and
culture groups around the country, facilitated workshops for young
people and emerging artists, and released his debut CD, Get Outta Your Chair, in 2008. Shahid’s music, many of his articles, and an expanded bio are available at his website.

State Director of NORML for Arizona
NORML's mission is to move public opinion sufficiently to achieve the repeal of marijuana prohibition so that the responsible use of cannabis by adults is no longer subject to penalty.
In Arizona, it is still a felony to possess marijuana if you are not a
medical marijuana patient.
