John Perkins "Hoodwinked" & Russ Baker "Family Of Secrets" on Grit TV - MUST WATCH!

Excellent Interview, ground breaking!

U.S. history has seen many presidents elected on a wave of progressive promises, only to see them compromise again and again once in office, caving to the very interests, military and corporate, that they railed against so effectively. Barack Obama is only the latest to get elected on a promise to end a war and take care of working people, only to preside over an administration stacked with Wall Street types and wind up continuing a war he wanted to wind down. Americans voted for change and are getting frustrated with the lack of it, but our guests have both written about the powerful forces holding the status quo in place. John Perkins is the author of Hoodwinked and Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, and has written about how corporations push politicians around and even threaten them with violence. Russ Baker, meanwhile, is the author of Family of Secrets: The Bush Dynasty, the Powerful Forces That Put It in the White House, and What Their Influence Means for America and has written extensively about the military-industrial complex. They argue the only weapon we have is public opinion and public pressure--and we need to bring it to bear not just on the government, but on the corporations.

Obama was trojan horse for

Obama was trojan horse for Wall Street and the bankers to call the shots and have him as their front man. The people were fooled.

Keep you eye on Iceland and the former east block nations who are getting the screws put to them by the British bankers in league with the big international banks from Wall Street. Iceland is simply going to give them the middle finger and the east block nations are about to as well. The demand is for them to take on debt for even and become a nation of slaves to these banker theives.

The revolution starts now.

Good video interview. Thanks!

Russ Baker is the man!

Everyone who frequents this site should read Family Of Secrets. It makes one wish that Oliver Stone would have held off on his Bush gloss-over and got together with Baker to do it right. I also recommend going to and listening to all the great interviews with Baker which are posted there. Peace On Earth, thanks for the vid.


I just joined Baker's Family of Secrets website and sent him a note to take a harder look at 9/11. I encourage others to do the same. And yes, there are some great interviews there. Of particular interest to me was the Greater Boston/Emily Rooney (Andy Rooney's daughter) interview. Emily hates 911 truthers and has publicly called us nuts. You could see in the interview she wanted to do the same with Baker's claims about the Bush crime family, but she wouldn't because she has respected Baker for a long time. It was great to see Baker put her in her place. Let's encourage Russ, and not harass him. Ya never know what someone like him could uncover. When the tower of deceit finally falls, it will be at freefall speed.

Thanks for this!

This was a very good video however I couldn't help but cringe at the end with John Perkins talking about Climate Change and directions toward a global solution.

It's hard to be an expert on all things, that's why we need...


These guys spend much time in one area of research.

Regards John
