(NaturalNews) John Perkins is of Confessions of an Hit Man, Hoodwinked and The Secret History of the American Empire. He's a former economic hit man who changed his course and now exposes the truth about economic imperialism through his books and website (

After reading his absolutely stunning book about the history of the American empire, I sought to interview John Perkins and share his powerful, passionate message with others who wanted to learn the truth about how our world really operates. If you watch this interview, you won't be disappointed:

In this interview, Perkins describes his history as an economic hit man and how he became enlightened and saw the errors of his ways, then transformed into a global truth teller. He reveals the truth about 's assassinations of South American leaders, how U.S. corporations exploit billions of dollars in foreign aid to rake in the profits, and what we can do as individuals to help put an end to the economic raping of our planet by "predatory capitalism."

Perkins is not anti-capitalism, but he decries the tragedy of predatory capitalism which relies on threats, corruption, control and political assassinations to achieve specific corporate goals.

This topic is especially relevant given the recent assassination of John Roll and the shooting of congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson, . Evidence continues to emerge to suggest this was an organized assassination plot possibly involving Loughner as a kind of Manchurian Candidate who was set up to carry out the assassination.

As the Washington Post is reporting, Lougher's home was searched and the FBI found papers where Lougher had written "I planned ahead" and "my assassination" along with "Giffords," then actually signed the envelope.

If this isn't an obvious plant of contrived evidence, I don't know what is. It's as if Loughner's "handler" laid out all the bread crumbs to be sure even the FBI couldn't fail to see Loughner as guilty.

In any case, my interview with Perkins is not about the Giffords shooting (it was recorded prior to this event), but it does reveal some startling insight that paints a picture of global assassins working to accomplish useful aims for powerful corporations.

Feel free to share this interview with others. More people need to know the truth about how the American empire really operates. John Perkins lays it out for everyone to see.
