LONDON - On the eve of a global economic summit here, President Obama delivered an unusual warning Wednesday for an American leader: The "voracious" U.S. economy can no longer be the sole engine of global growth.

Certain contacts of mine have been especially valuable in sharing information concerning important events behind the scenes. Only about 25% of news ever reaches the public networks. Perhaps another 50% reaches the myriad internet journals. That leaves 25% which never is reported, too sensitive, too privileged, too dangerous, too deadly at times. One colleague has numerous connections on at least three continents, and has been very active in sending messages over the past weekend. The news knocked me off my feet! That is not easy to do.
It seems the G20 Meeting has another agenda, as a group has assembled in the last few months, one with a purpose to pursue justice, prosecution, restitution, anticipated to employ leveraged actions behind the curtains. Details will be provided in the upcoming April Hat Trick Letter, as events are still fluid and information is being collected. The Spanish Govt has already begun criminal proceedings against certain Wall Street executives.
The G20 Meeting is doubling as a forum for legal prosecutors of unknown identity.
They are accepting evidence from players within the Papa Bush & Bush Jr & Clinton Administrations regarding criminal syndicate behavior extending since 1980.
The climax of the Carter era was the Iran Contra deal and the disastrous mission to rescue Tehran hostages.
My view is simpler, that the 1981 date marked the Papa Bush era of control, complete with burgeoning narcotic activity with protected US security organizations, whose channels of money reached Wall Street, with full knowledge by the US Federal Reserve.

Mum's the Word on “Free Trade”: Money Controls
Hence, “free trade” in the U. S. means an open market for profit; and “free trade” in Japan means a closed market for market share resulting in Toyota being #1 as Ford, GM, and Chrysler struggle. To China “free trade” means that the U. S. continues its open market while China with authoritarian rule closes its market and controls its labor and currency, but fails to control its air and water so as to have the cheapest production in globalization. Thus, globalization is nothing more than a trade war with production looking for a country cheaper to produce. Today, “free trade” to Corporate America, Wall Street, and the big banks, means the U. S. should not compete in globalization. It means the United States should not trade. “Free trade” means Corporate America should continue, unfettered by Congress, offshoring its investment, research, technology, development, production, jobs – literally, the U. S. economy. Today, “free trade” means to Corporate America that it be permitted to continue offshoring our economy while it builds the economies of Mexico, China and India. In short, “free trade” means for Corporate America to ruin the economy of the United States as it begs for bailouts and bonuses from the taxpayers.
Wall Street’s inordinate amount of influence on Washington policy was achieved through a combination of campaign contributions, an unwavering belief in the idea that the financial wizards making billions on transactions with nothing behind them knew best, and the fact that Wall Street has become akin to a minor league system for those in charge of regulating the financial industry.
With Wall Street holding the levers of American political power over the past two decades, financial wizards were able to end regulations separating commercial and investment banks. They also enacted a ban on the regulation of credit-default swaps, instituted a measure that allowed banks to judge their own financial health and passed a law increasing the amount of leverage investment banks were allowed to take on. Those lax regulations combined with a virtually absent Securities and Exchange Commission produced the excessive risk-taking that brought the world economy to its knees.
