IMF, SDR, GOLD, CHINA & NEW EMERGING MONETARY MARKET, 16 JAN


FINANCIAL GAZETTE :Russian, Chinese Deals Should Transform Economy, 16 JAN

RUSSIA last year publicly announced its interest in Zimbabwe’s resources sector with a US$3 billion investment on a major platinum mining venture. The deal set it up against China, which has snapped key mining assets in the country since Zimbabwe embarked on a Look-East policy adopted after Western sanctions against President Robert Mugabe’s government. But questions have started emerging about the ability of mining deals with two of Zimbabwe’s international allies to transform the country’s mining sector, and consequently its economy.
Although analysts contend the deals have benefitted crisis-torn Zimbabwe, they agree these have not materialised into meaningful economic benefits for the country. In any case, they said, China and Russian stood to benefit more from the country’s resources, which they were snapping at discounted prices. Beijing and Moscow’s capital flowed into Zimbabwe when western countries maintained their embargo on the country.
State-owned Chinese firms have been outpacing investors from other parts of the world in the scramble for Zimbabwe’s minerals. Analysts say for the deals to translate into real economic recovery, Zimbabwe must adopt policies that ensure it benefits from resource exploitation by its allies. For instance, Zimbabwe has to ensure that Chinese firms’ salaries to Zimbabweans compare favourably with those paid to workers by other companies.
Chinese firms have been accused of poorly remunerating their workers and disregarding labour laws when retrenching workers. “We can be better off if we read the riot act on what we expect,” says Takunda Mugaga, head of research at Econometer Global Capital.
“The problem with the Chinese is that for every 50 jobs they create, they employ 10 Zimbabweans. This does not create the disposable incomes that we require.”
As the world’s fastest growing economy evolves, its industries have been rapidly expanding and asset managers, controlling billions of dollars in their portfolios, believes it is time to join the world’s multi-nationals that are trooping to Zimbabwe. Their target is no less than the mining industry, which has emerged as key to extinguishing China’s huge appetite for raw materials.
Not many Chinese companies had a presence in Zimbabwe from the 1980s to late 1990s. They are now calling the shots.
Chinese interests include investments in the telecoms sector, power, ICT and other industries. Power generation is important for the mining industry and domestic consumption. National electricity demand is currently at 2 200 Megawatts (MW) against current generation capacity of 1 240 MW.
What this means is that Zimbabwe has to import between 50MW and 300 MW to bridge the deficit. China is experiencing huge deficits of raw materials across a range of sectors.  Its markets are anxious for imported minerals to bridge the gap, and investment advisors say Zimbabwe, in the next decade, will provide the turf on which a big fight for the scramble for Africa’s minerals would be fought.
Five billion square kilometres of roads are expected to be paved in China in the next 15 years, while 170 mass-transit systems would be constructed.  About 40 billion square metres of floor space is also projected to be constructed in five million buildings during this period, 50 000 of them skyscrapers.  “We see this growth in the foreseeable future, there is a real desire by Chinese investors to partner Zimbabweans in building thermal power stations, coal and chrome mines,” says Matt Pieterse, chief executive officer of the Beijing-based TBA China Capital Advisors.
Among Chinese firms with interest in Zimbabwe are Anjin in diamond mining, tobacco dealer China Tobacco International, telecoms giant Huawei Technologies, AfroChine that has interests in chrome and ZTE, which has clinched big deals in supplying mobile telecommunications equipment.
In 2013 alone, Chinese investment into Zimbabwe reached US$602 million, the largest in Africa. Chinese exports to Zimbabwe reached US$440 million in 2014, while exports to Beijing from Harare were estimated at US$668 million. The Russians have begun to see bigger opportunities in Zimbabwe than before.
In September, President Vladimir Putin’s Russia made an emphatic and strategic move into Zimbabwe’s platinum mining sector in the Great Dyke mineral region. Zimbabwe played host to over 50 Russians early September, sealing deals that spanned from mining, mining equipment supplies to delivery of military helicopter gunships.
Mugaga warns that full implementation of the projects will depend on the policies that Zimbabwe will pursue. Otherwise, the US$3 billion may never be fully deployed. “It will all depend on the legal dynamics in Zimbabwe. If a law that does not promote investment is put in place in 2015 for example, it will affect the deal. Like anywhere in Africa, they will be very cautious,” he says.

*******
1-16-15 Millionday: THE BEAUTY OF IRAQ AND HOW THEY ACTUALLY DO THEIR LAW SYSTEM AS FAR PUTTING IT TO LAW -- IS THAT THE FINAL STEP IS TO PRINT IT IN THE GAZETTE (IRAQI LAW BOOK FORMAL) SO YES THE LAWS ARE DONE BUT IN ORDER TO MAKE THEM ACTIVE THE MASSIVE PRINT I PREDICT--WILL MAKE THEM ALL AT THE SAME TIME BE EFFECTIVE AT THE RIGHT TIME AS THE REFORMS ARE ALL DONE AND RELIANT ON EACH OTHER --- THIS MAKES GREAT LOGICAL SENSE.

THE LAWS THAT ARE BEING DONE ON TUESDAY WITH THE BUDGET HAVE BEEN REPORTED TO BE THE FEDERAL SUPREME COURT AND AMNESTY AND PARTY LAW --- THEY HAVE 200+ THAT ARE ALL DONE AND NEED TO BE PRINTED TO BE ACTIVE SO THAT ONE DOES NOT MAKE ANOTHER UNLAWFUL OR UNCONSTITUTIONAL.I REALLY SEE THIS AS A GENIUS PLAN AND THAT IS WHAT WE HAVE BEEN WATCHING UNFOLD --- THE AGREEMENTS WITH THE ERBIL AGREEMENT AND ALSO TO HAVE A UNIFIED GOVERNMENT WAS A HUGE STEP AND THEY HAVE NOT REVALUED YET BECAUSE AS CBI STATED IT MUST NOT BE THE RIGHT TIME --- THEY WILL NOT ANNOUNCE IT BEFORE BUT TO SEE SO MUCH DONE THAT WE HAVE WATCHED HAPPEN --- IT IS OBVIOUSLY VERY CLOSE TO A PERFECT TIME FOR THEM IMO --- AND YES THEY NEED IT VERY BAD FOR THE CALL OF INVESTMENT.

JNSPHORN POST FROM TNT : A HIDDEN NUGGET IN TODAY'S CC, 16 JAN

Jnsphorn: I believe that this was a hidden nugget in today's CC that (at least) I have not heard previously and I believe the leverage others may be using against the U.S. for the continual hold-ups.

541 caller:  Good morning, super-wonderful-fantastic people!  It was said a week or so ago that 30 countries agreed to this, then the US put a hold on it.  If they put another hold on, can we exchange in another country?  Or exchange just a little bit here for spending money?

DC:  The general public cannot exchange until this is public.  We believe that this time the US is supporting the RV. However, if some other countries do start public exchanges, we believe everyone else will go as well.  I think we will have options to exchange in other countries if that happens – but I truly don’t think it will happen, because everyone’s agreed, and why would the US make problems for something they have agreed to? 

R.V / GCR TIDBIT, 16 JAN

1-16-15 R.V. / GCR: Part of phase two of the global currency reset will begin at the trade desk level there are two sides to the truth as the world regains some consciousness.

False flags to continue while Ponzi schemes implode.

The good part is the republics coming and it comes with new banking rules and transparencies.

If it’s true that Mike Cotrell’s signature has been sent to all 208 countries.. that signals to the unknown the privates are / Will be in go mode next.

This a great secret place...yippy timbers.......This means you should see more on Tuesday earliest.

In the meantime USA has quietly lessened the federal laws on marijuana.....let’s build on that for a second....I didn’t say smoke it, but we can have brownies.

Seems Obama still needs to be stepped down before USA currency will be released.. So gentle here comes the Republic…. they want a smooth transference of Ichabod’s...timber.

MARKZ POST: "THE GOOD FIGHT", 16 JAN

MarkZ Post:
The good fight
MC’s letters are not intended to make sense to the average person. They are targeted to a different audience, but you(readers of this) have made a large difference by spreading them, reading them and talking about them. Cousin “it” the deformed family member that was being kept under the stairs is now known to the world and has to be dealt with(kind of like the Goonies). He is diligently working on a fourth installment that has much bigger teeth to make certain we stay moving forward and WE ARE MOVING FORWARD. 

The thought is to start working on background after the fourth to “bring” you the public up to speed on the how, what and when of this journey. 

Please keep in mind that the revaluation of currencies, while very important to most readers is of second importance to most of us that have been in this for the long haul. I personally have not been involved as long as MC, he is celebrating his 25th year now I believe.

 Many have given their careers and some their lives to overhauling the world banking system from debt based(fiat), to asset backed(loosely called the gold standard). We have a front row seat to history being made that will be more important than the falling of the Berlin Wall some day in my opinion. So grab your popcorn, soda and pull up a seat and try to enjoy the rest of the show(journey), it will not be without a few bumps and potholes.

S3A CHAT LATE UPDATE, 16 JAN

Stage3alpha:

Awake in 3D January 16, 2015 at 10:50am  If there were ever a "set of circumstances" required for the PTB to make plausible arguments for globe-changing financial announcements next week in Davos Switzerland and at the European Central Bank meetings - this is it.

Have the Swiss set the stage? Clearly the IMF and the U.S. FED Bank, nor the ECB had any idea this was coming (or they're simply flat out lying about their knowledge regarding the SNB decoupling from the Euro).

Something big is in the offing!

The old financial system is being dismantled and replaced by the new system.

Both will run in parallel and the shift is happening a top speed now.

Russia is part of the plan and has struck a match by cutting off gas to Europe and abandoning the petrodollar.

Hang on!  Change is occurring by the minute! :-)

TNT CC NOTES, 16 JAN

1-16-15 TNT DINAR CC (Notes by Adept1):Replay 805.399.1500, PIN CODE 409029#http://events.instantteleseminar.com/?eventid=64726293
Tony:  Good morning, TNT!  Today is Friday, January 16, 2015.  Ray is not here;  he is Dallas today, so look for him!  He’s attending a funeral for one of the OpenMike members, but is also doing his class this weekend.

DC, there are a lot of questions;  we can get through our part quickly.  DC’s voice is out, so let’s ask direct questions, to the point, so we can use his voice as long as we can.

DC:  East to West, Iraq is still very much in the agreement they talked about, set up and ready to go.  That’s it. Everything is cued, and the question is exact timing – any time from now on.  For those who don’t need details, there you go.

For those who do like the details, Abadi and the Council of Ministers are working hard to get everything done, with some last-minute game-day checks – how is the training going, security, etc. That’s been going on for the last three days and over the weekend.  That is quite rare for them to be meeting after morning mosque on Friday – throughout the entire country.  Abadi and his crew have been coordinating that with the CBI, they have prepped everyone, and there were some last-minute adjustments associated with the decoupling of the Swiss franc;  these were minor adjustments. They checked everyone is where they need to be, and they believe they have been given clearance by the US to let this go when they choose.

On celebrations, they have a plan and it could be any day, everything has been prepped.  As for ISIL, gains are being made with good missions in the past 48 hours, so congrats.  They are keeping ISIL in the corner.  The Anwar rehabilitation plan – road, signs, etc. – has now been accounted for.  It’s been a very good week regarding ISIL.  The customs agents in Iraq have put out limits on traveling with currency outside Iraq, and that has been confirmed from four different sources.  This bank lasts for a week from last Tuesday to the 20th:  you cannot take more than 10,000 dinar out of the country.  That’s about ten bucks at the 1166 rate.  I’m a cheap flyer, but that doesn’t work. They want to stop smuggling and that is with an RV window. They also want to prevent former political leaders from moving a lot of stolen or unclaimed dinar out of the country. They have found a lot of stashes in Baghdad and other places relating to former politicians who are now in Iran and Syria.  Obviously they expect the RV within that window.

The CBI and Finance ministry staff –some of which are in the US and other places – are making sure this is coordinated on a technical and procedural level. This is everyone making sure they are in constant communication, in case any wrinkles come up.

Tony:  Everyone is anticipating this and has agreed to the timeline.  IN Iraq some banks were open on Friday, which is very unusual.  Throughout the country, some banks opened after morning mosque.  We don’t quite know whether that is in anticipation or because they had some transactions to complete. Something happened in their financial system that was very unusual…

Monday/Tuesday was the day they expected to do this. They discovered some currency in the country they had to clear up because there was a large volume and significant people.  Everyone was prepared for that, and they anticipate it today.  Events in the market may be playing a part here, too – not destroying it but possibly delaying it. There is an agreement in place and final date that everyone says they can live with.  All of iraq’s people and banking system were told to look for something, and we were not.  Sometimes they think we get too much information, but we get it out of Iraq.  Actually we are in a better place because of what happened yesterday.

DC:  It was great!  Let’s talk about the Swiss franc.  There are a bunch of good articles on WSJ and CNBC about what happened and why it might matter (or not).  For those who don’t want to dig into those, the Swiss central bank, the equivalent of the Fed, said they could no longer stay pegged to the Euro in order to keep transactions easy between their biggest trade partners.  It’s as if we said that we were going to a fixed rate for our major trading partners, so that it can be easy to see and exchange. They set the Swiss franc to 1.2 to the euro, and they said they would print more money as required to keep that rate.  In 2011, when there was the big Euro crisis in Portugal, Italy, Greece and Cyprus, the euro was really in difficulties.  So the Swiss said that they would keep the rate at 1.2 euros, and they agreed not to to push it.  In the euro crisis, it’s really about Europe having been in a deep recession and they are looking for safe havens.  They want to put their money in Switzerland, including rich Russians. There was also the slowing down of emerging markets, so money goes to safe havens like gold, US T-bills and Swiss francs. So instead of costing the Swiss government rhetoric, they needed to keep printing money as the franc went up and up.  It cost them a ton of money to keep up with this, as well as their long-term potential balance sheets.  It was like the Quantitative Easing that the Feds used, and the Swiss felt they were getting into debt.

Meanwhile, in the next week or so, the European central bank is indicating some form of Quantitative Easing for Europe – that is, buying bonds and printing extra money.  That puts pressure on the US ten-year bonds, gold and Swiss francs. So Switzerland decided they couldn’t take any more and decoupled from the euro.  They didn’t let the US know or the European Central Bank know in advance, and everyone thought it would be a multi-year process. They just let it rip.  They didn’t want anyone else’s input, they just let it go.  The currency went up 37% in one day, then fell back 17%, and it was a real shock to the entire system.

That’s bad for Switzerland because it makes their experts more expensive.  The prices of their watches and chocolate just went up because their money got more expensive.  It was also a big shock to their stock market, and that’s why it’s all over the news.  How does this affect the RV/GCR? They were holding back the dam on any kind of monetary changes they were considering.  There will be a lot of adjustments with the GCR, and effectively the Swiss said “we cannot wait any longer, nor can we let the US mess this up any further.”  So that put cracks in the dam of the US control of this scenario.  It’s adding a lot of pressure;  what will happen when others start to move?  Obviously, Iraq wants to get this done as well. If Switzerland, which has the most stable currency in the world, wants to change, then everyone else has to start adjusting as well.  It’s wonderful that they created such a deal.

Bottom line:  Switzerland changed their rate without telling anyone, and they let it float.  It ruffled a lot of feathers, but it was costing the Swiss so much money they could not go on as they were.  It will hurt Swiss exports, but there it is.

Tony:  Switzerland was part of the GCR, and they were hurting like everyone else, and they got tired of hearing “Tuesday, Tuesday, Tuesday”.  It was their last straw, but also they knew that Iraq was being held up from something held over their head.  So they decided to let it go instead of waiting until next Thursday the 22nd.  The RV would have been disguised by that, but the Swiss wasn’t prepared to let it go any longer and no one is holding anything over their heads.  They took the first step;  who will follow them? The US dollar started to drop, and the currencies are now out of whack. They did everyone a big favor by agreeing to be the first one over the picket line, and now everyone else has a reason to move forward without waiting for the Iraq.

Their QE was just a disguise for where the money is really coming through – the RV.  Those who don’t understand the GCR thought that this would collapse the global economy because they saw it as creating money out of thin air. So although people at the top were shocked and surprise at not being warned, the little people who are suffering at the bottom are ecstatic that some step forward has now been made.  It’s forcing people to do something and stop talking about it.  We have all been saying, “do it and fix it later!”  Now they will have to do it, and can fix it with one country.  It’s not something to be worried about.

DC: IMF and BIS are dealing with the Swiss issues and the consequent adjustments. That is bringing in momentum for us.  The US administration are saying they support getting this done within the window, and we are very thankful for that.  The world economy needs it, too.  The banks have in skeleton crews, and will pull everyone in upon completion in Iraq. They’re waiting for the signal from the Fed and UST as to when to bring everyone in to work, but watching the screens themselves as well.

Tony: Everyone is on standby, and some people have been notified of appointments, too.

302 caller:  [Appreciation]  DC, you said “we believe the US has agreed to let this go through”;  we have heard this before and it makes me nervous. What threat does the US have over Iraq to block them doing this?

DC:  How can the US continue to jerk around the world?  By simply NOT issuing our belief of support, it messes up everything.  Money is a confidence game. There has to be an expression of belief that the G8 and G20 countries that Iraq has sorted out their economy and their currency and that it is worth $3.58. All the US has to do is stutter a bit and it will all collapse.  To have this go as smoothly as possible, every country has to be singing the same song.  I believe that is happening now after many meetings and also following enforcement issues on the US side.  They finally put some skin in the game, and they don’t want to lose what they have anted up.

Tony:  What is the US holding over Iraq?  First, we can take away our vote of confidence. On the other hand, China, Germany, France, everyone else at the table is saying, “Wait, US, this is YOUR plan, and now you don’t have confidence in it?”  So they think there must be another reason.  The US can also say, “I won’t sell you any more tanks or whatever.” There are so many things the US can do to screw up Iraq, especially with a new leader. That’s much more than a no-confidence vote in the new currency.  The whole thing the US has been doing – going there, getting out, coming back – all this makes the US presence integral to the new Iraqi government.  If they threaten not to help Iraq any longer, that is major threat.

DC:  What could really cause a death spiral is if the US stutters in supporting the currency.  If the US is not behind it, or feels its wishes were not represented (whether we deserve it or not)… President Obama must make sure Iraq succeeds, or the US public will be outraged. Everyone needs Iraq to succeed and then we all get an huge economic boost as well.  I will bet Tony a (simple) drink that the US economy will end up with 6.5% boost to the GDP or more.

Tony:  I will not take that bet. We know what the benefits will be already:  twice what the Clinton administration achieved.

Caller:  So you ‘believe’ all that has been taken care of and they are satisfied?  And now you think that it will happen between today and the 20th?

Tony:  You want us to take out the word “believe” and say “we have been told that…”

DC:  People both on the high and low sides are all agreed this is the window.

Caller: Why did the date 22. January come up for the Swiss franc?

DC:  That was the date announced by several central banks for when they intended to start their own QE – the Bank of England, I think, and several emerging markets.

305 caller:  You’ve covered the dinar, but I’m interested in 3-D printing.  They have a local outlet for 3-D printers in my area;  I would love to discuss the possibilities of getting involved in that.

Tony: I am 100% getting involved in that;  we are just looking for who will be the leaders of that new industry.  There is only positive things to be said about 3-D printer.  You will have desktop models in your office, at every Kinko’s and all the other printing places.  I have your number and we can talk about it.  I spoke about it last year, and so did the President in the State of the Union address.  It is there, and it’s the fastest growing industry out there.  I’m glad you got to see it first-hand!

Yesterday, CNBC showed a video saying that the Iraqi dinar is a scam;  this has since been removed.  I’m not an attorney;  I think their issue was actually selling dinar when they had no authorization and also some connection with hedge funds.  Some people were doing MLM and such with dinar, and that is illegal.  However, just because some people did some illegal transactions, I don’t want anyone to think dinar itself is a scam. They don’t want every hedge fund and millionaire to jump on the bandwagon, so they want those guys to think it’s a scam.  They will gradually find out the truth over the next few months. That’s the way it is being done.

DC:  I have no idea why they took it down.  I have asked a few people about that case, and it was about unlicensed deals.  You have to buy it from authorized outlets, and how you set up publically invested funds – you have to follow stringent rules.  These people didn’t and it’s now biting them in the ass.  There have been dinar scams, but there have been dishonest dealings in other industries for thousands of years – for example, the tulip craze in Holland three hundred years ago.

Tony:  There have been corrupt dealings making money off or around the dinar. They know about them, they have a list, and they are waiting until after the RV happens to get them, because then the value is higher and they can get them for a lot more.  It was being talked about in the forum and I don’t want anyone to be concerned about it.

DC: Some of the CNBC guys actually have dinar, and they were mostly told to “buy some and keep your mouth shut”.

562 caller:  Any new information on the dong?  [DC:  No.]  Last I heard, the street value of the dong was going down;  so what is the revalued rate?  And is ti still so?

DC:  The last I heard was 47 cents international and $1.02 contract rate.

Caller  Given what the Swiss just did, do you think other countries will do the same thing over the weekend and/or by Tuesday (if we don’t RV by Tuesday)?

DC: It certainly emboldened some folks, especially regarding gold.  The US ten-year bills are also getting hammered.  I don’t see a lot of safety plays on there.  British sterling is another safe haven, and that is already uncoupled. There aren’t that many folks pegged to the Euro or US dollar who will change their value.  The pressure to get ahead of everyone means that there are a lot of phone calls asking if they are on board, and they are all saying “Hell, yeah!”

Tony: The Swiss stepped out because they had the least amount of oversight, and that encourages everyone else to make adjustments to keep in step with the Swiss.  They must not have believed the latest agreement, or the Swiss would not have done this.

DC:  The Obama administration and the Swiss government do not see eye to eye on this.  The Swiss people are pretty jaded with the US forcing them to open the Swiss bank books and painting the Swiss as criminals and their banking system as messed up instead of staying focused on tax-evasion.  The diplomats who deal with the Swiss tell me that the Swiss are still pissed, and they have good reason.

860 caller:  I’m happy!  Many are asking where they can do their exchanges.

DC:  I don’t believe there is somewhere specific to Ithaca;  I didn’t see that on the list, but it might have been added.  Otherwise, they’ll have to go to Buffalo. Same for Peoria, Arizona;  they might have to go to Tempe or Phoenix.

540 caller:  About the Zim – will the ZA revalue after the AA notes?

Tony/DC:  All I know is that I was told to buy some.  So far as we know, they are still taking off six zeros.

602 caller:  Since they have gone to so much trouble to train people for the exchange centers, are they still using them?  Or is each individual bank handling it separately, or depending on your using their wealth managers?

DC:  I believe that a few banks will have their exchange centers in the major cities, but the rest will fold it back into their normal branches.  They are still hoping to see people into the bank within two hours, until they have more people trained up – once they get the message this is actually happening.

Caller:  My daughter is ecstatic that this is happening before her birthday next Thursday, because she wants a new car!

404 caller:  This is my first time this year.  The Oscar-Meyer Home is for sale at 1.75 million (with renovation), and I think it would be cool if the Hot Dog King of this century were to connect with the Hot Dog King of the last century.

Tony:  I think that would be a great place for the Dinarian Museum.

Caller:  What news from the mosques this morning?

DC:  In the mosques, they prepped them for this happening any time, and some information for where their paychecks could be cashed (not at every bank). They mainly told them which stations to listen to for further information, as part of a slow rollout.  They did say that salaries are now being paid at the new rate.  The banks are not required to handle this, in Iraq, but most have the option to do so, and we do know of some that are doing this in Kurdistan and Basra.

Tony:  Kurdistan did receive the payment they were waiting for.

Caller:  Did you say something unusual happened in the financial sector?

Tony:  Last Tuesday/Wednesday was the first time ALL the Central Banks worldwide connected to make sure this system was complete.

DC: They had done other tests, but we are being told that this was specifically for the RV.

541 caller:  Good morning, super-wonderful-fantastic people!  It was said a week or so ago that 30 countries agreed to this, then the US put a hold on it.  If they put another hold on, can we exchange in another country?  Or exchange just a little bit here for spending money?

DC:  The general public cannot exchange until this is public.  We believe that this time the US is supporting the RV.  However, if some other countries do start public exchanges, we believe everyone else will go as well.  I think we will have options to exchange in other countries if that happens – but I truly don’t think it will happen, because everyone’s agreed, and why would the US make problems for something they have agreed to?

816 caller:  I want to have a really good birthday next week, and see this by Tuesday!  That other lady and I could do a lot of celebrating.  I was in the bank I’ve been with for years, and I asked the manager this question:  Do you know anything about the RV?  She said, “What’s the RV?”  I said it was about the dinar and she said they didn’t sell dinar, but if there were something like that, she would be all over it.  So she can’t say I didn’t tell her!

Do you think the Swiss deal is pushing this along?  I hope the US stays on board;  I think other countries are tired of them getting in the way.

DC:  It definitely caused some adjustments, and it’s definitely adding pressure to the situation to get this done.

Caller:  Is there anywhere you can go to look up the history of RVs so people can look it up?  I’m not a member of the forum – unless Pam would like to let me in?

Pam: I know DC did a really good Dinar 101 on a call, and I think it’s buried in the forum.

Tony:  There is one in the forum, and it would be great to post that in Tony Blast section.  Wait, that will cost me money every time someone clicks on it!  We’ll have to think about it.  I have your number and will give it to Pam.

405 caller:  It’s very interesting what’s happening in Switzerland.  On a different topic, can you tell us how much it costs to keep this call and the site going?

Tony:  I can’t but we do have to pay when anyone posts, listens to the replays, etc.  It depends on the traffic.  We have 25,000 people on the call, and there are still only 2-300 people sending in money to pay for the month.  I do appreciate every one of you!

Caller:  When we talk about people who are holding this up, I seem to remember that the Congress is supposed to be responsible for currency.  They seem to have handed that off to the Fed.  Is it the executive branch, Congress or what?

DC: It’s a combination.  You have people in the executive branch to make this work, with the support of Congress (in general and in committees).  Even the judiciary have had some impact.  The administration is in charge of the execution of this.

Caller:  I hope the Swiss has an impact;  nobody saw that coming!  [Tony: But we’re glad it’s here!]

435 caller:  Is the cabal part of the reason the Swiss franc went the way it did?

DC:  No. The Central Bank said it got too expensive.  And for the record, I don’t believe there is a cabal.  I’ve had to apologize to heads of state when I’ve messed up, but never to a cabal.

Tony:  Pam just said that if you go to the TNT call on 2. January, 2015, that is the best call to answer all your questions.  If you don’t get it after that, you just don’t get it.

405 caller:  You said there were slight changes – does that mean dinar below $3.58?

DC: We were talking about the Swiss franc because that was a major stable country.  They wanted to adjust with respect to the dollar, yuan, pound and Euro. For the dinar, we believe the range will be between 3.22 and 3.90, with $3.58 on the cards.  We believe that there wills till be a slow rollout here in the US, starting with the internet groups and then releasing it to the general public.  We believe that normal people will be in the banks as soon as they let this go; there is not really a way to stop that happening once it is out in the public eye.  Or they could stop it, but it wouldn’t be pretty.

718 caller:  Always remember, some people have more balls than a pool table, so don’t let them get you upset.  All of you have no choice but to adopt me, because when I listen I fall asleep – you’ll have to take my number and help me out, because I will be pitiful.  I am listening for my niece, who is working, so maybe Pam can take my number and call me?

Tony:  I will definitely pass it on to Pam!

DC:  There must be 100+ people who we put to sleep.

Caller:  [Appreciation]  And please tell those people to hurry up and do something!

281 caller:  Had some confirmation on the Swiss event and how it’s positively affecting our situation and moving this forward.  My friend has been in for ten years.  We are ready to roll and go hunting.  I want to take Tony a grizzly bear hunt.  [Tony:  From the jeep!]  Maybe we can use Tony as bait!  Remember, God rewards you for your obedience and sacrifice;  the blessing will always overtake the curse.  [Appreciation]

DC:  I was in Alaska fly-fishing with my family, and my uncle loves camping out in the wilderness.  We had to take two bush-planes and a canoe to get out there.  I was fishing by Uncle Jerry, and a grizzly bear with two cubs came by.  So I started walking away really fast and hollered at Uncle Jerry to come away… in his waders.  He was moving so slowly and the bear was getting closer and closer. So to avoid being grizzly bait, you only have to be faster than my 83-year-old uncle.  I went back, hoisted him over my shoulder, and carried him back to camp – and he complained I was jostling his cigarette!

772 caller:  I’m awake!  I wonder which currency might flip before the RV goes…

DC:  I don’t think anything will go before this goes, considering all that is going on Iraq right now.  I don’t think there will be time for that.

Caller:  We’ve all been questioned out.  I just listen to keep my finger on the pulse.  Yahoo!  Let’s get these suckers on the road!

936 caller:  If this goes by Thursday, I’ll have the best birthday ever – I’m going backwards now.  Do you still think this will go 4am to 6am EST?

DC:  Yes, that is still the case, and the best window is between 2 and 5 am, after the markets close and before the US banks open.

Caller:  If this goes today, will some banks be open on Monday?

DC:  Each bank has its own plan. Some will be open on Monday and the rest on Tuesday. If it does happen tonight, there will definitely be exchanges Saturday/Sunday.

Caller:  I heard a rumor the Groups will get their numbers tonight…?

DC:  They will get the numbers when the Iraqi people get it.  They won’t get it before the Iraqi citizens or before us – they are too high profile (like us).

520 caller:  [Appreciation]  We have 25K dinar without a gifting letter. Would I need a receipt to exchange at the airport?

DC:  No.  You could also send her an email saying “Thank you for your gift on this date.”

Caller:  I’m very interested in 3-D printing – you will send us that information, Tony, right?

Tony:  I’m pointing you in that direction now. Washington is concerned that if I say, “XYZ is the best company out there,” then everyone will invest in that company – it’s about the influence.  I’ve looked at four major companies, and there are opportunities within the industry itself that can make you a ton of money, but it requires work and research. I would love to talk to you all so we can exchange ideas;  what I can’t do is refer anything for you to invest in.  I can only tell you what I’m doing;  I’m not a financial adviser.  I will make money because I know when to put money in and take money out.  Not everyone knows how to do that, and if they lost  money, they would blame Tony!

Caller:  I know there is a conference going on in LA this week, but I didn’t have the funds to go there.  I hope we get to network and stay in touch.  We can’t wait to meet you all!

Tony:  That conference was just the beginning. This industry has barely got started.  Even if we don’t have our meetings, you guys are always welcome to dinner at DC’s ranch…

DC:  WE believe that Iraq is very ready, there is a soft rollout going on now and we don’t know how long that will take. The US is being supportive and we are grateful.  The Swiss changes are applying pressure, and we are expecting this to go through at any time over the next four to five days.

Pam:  Be ready so you don’t have to get ready!  Have a plan, even if it’s not complete.

Tony:  Ray wasn’t able to make it today, and we send out condolences to the family of the OpenMike member whose funeral is today.  There is an agreement in place, and it could happen anywhere within the timeframe they have agreed.  It doesn’t necessarily mean in the next 30 minutes or this afternoon.  We do know that there was to be a global announcement next Thursday and it could well happen before then.  We are within the window.  I love that Swiss stood up and did what they had to do to survive, and by doing that, other countries will follow.  Everyone has suffered enough, and there was a general agreement that clearly the Swiss were not willing to wait for any longer.  I hope this weekend will be it.  We will either do a short call on Monday or we’ll be at the bank! 

MNT. GOAT UPDATE : " AN ECONOMIC WAR ", PART.1, 16 JAN

UU3223 – “An Economic War”   by Mnt Goat  Part 1

Hi Everyone,

I know today’s news, like the past couple news letters, is not all very pleasant. It is sad what is being done to Iraq as I believe the USA is medaling in their internal affairs too much and using the stalling of the RV for political reasons and leverage outside of Iraq’s benefit. 

There is not much more for Iraq to do for RV and I will try to explain just what I mean by this statement in today’s news letter.

I hope everyone also read my last news letters dated 01/12 since this is a continuation of this ongoing saga.   

Today’s News

Today is Friday Jan 16th   and we end the week with a new window of opportunity for a possible RV.
~~~
Why do I say this?  I will tell you.

In my last couple news letters I stated we were in a good window to possibly see the RV from last weekend.  I based my information on many factors one of which was a targeted “go live” on the Iraq Stock Exchange (ISX) with international trading.

Well we now know this was just another attempt to go live for international trading but it could not be pulled off. This was due to not having their currency first as international.

How can you trade stocks and currency on international markets when you do not have a fare market rate value and are not linked to the exchanges. How can the BUY and SELL transactions work when the brokerage systems can not research (or link to) the current market values of your currency.

The completed RV rollout process will give them this capability. It is the final missing piece. We now also know for a fact the ISX is tied to having the RV in place so this is no longer a rumor. So it makes total sense that when they talk about the ISX rollout once again we should pay close attention.

I am now hearing there is going to be yet another attempt on Jan 20th for  ISX rollout. That is next Tuesday. This is now why I am saying another window of opportunity has opened up for an RV.

The RV must occur prior to any international trading in ISX.

So the window is from today Friday Jan 16th thru Jan 20th. Will they meet this new target this time and begin international trading on the ISX?  We wait and see.

You see they are desperately trying to sync up events prior to pushing out the RV. On one hand you have the gov’t negotiating oil deals, parliament trying to work through needed legislation, the CBI building up reserves and stabilizing the rate, the finance ministry working with the budget and other corruption matters. 

2015 Budget Saga

So there are many items to talk about today concerning the progress being made and those other events we should be paying attention to besides the ISX rollout.

First let’s talk about the 2015 budget implementation. As I said in prior news letters I totally believe the budget is done and has been done for many weeks now only they have to make adjustments for the sudden decline in oil prices.

They can not open the budget and announce it because there is a greater plan  and the plan includes other events happening in synchronization. I follow the budget saga with you in my news only because I know when they begin to announce something pertaining to it, it then gives us an indication, a timeframe for the final voting. Again this event is worth paying attention to.

For me these budget events are the triggers for “ready to RV”. This timeframe has been announced as Jan 20th for the final vote on the budget. So we wait and see if in fact it does take place and what happens next.

So Iraq has to constantly make excuses to tell their citizens why the budget is not yet ready. Certainly they can not tell them the USA is medaling once again in their internal affairs. They know all about the support the USA gave Maliki and how it all turned out. They do not trust the medaling USA anymore to help them.

So why has the USA not pushed the RV button already?

There is an economic blackmail going on right under our noses. If you pay attention to the news from Iraq, the BBC  and your local news media channels you can read between the lines.

Just remember the basics of what is going on here. The USA wants to control the oil in the Middle East. There is a new pipeline under construction and it must pass through Syria and many other countries. The goal is to bring the oil to Europe and avoid much of the high cost of shipment. Russia does not want them to control it. Control of the oil is money, huge money. Money is power. We are witnessing now this power unleashed and what it can do.

This recent news today about the Swiss decision to de-link the franc from the Euro was a surprise for everyone. It should be of no surprise since why should the Swiss artificially boost the Euro any longer. There is no other reason.

All players must play in this rebalancing and Swiss feels they have done more than their part while other countries resist the needed changes (hint – USA? ). Simple put the people of Switzerland voted the referendum to keep shoring up the EURO. It is their money and they no longer believe it is being spent appropriately.

Note of caution - This news from the Swiss is not about the Cabal breakdown or the Swiss going on a the gold standard, as many have already taken credit for. It is predictable that whenever there is such an event they will try to take credit for it.

Again, as I told you, these weirdoes in this group of people have other motives and agendas in mind and will take credit for anything that happens to show they are in charge.

The fact is they have absolutely no power just an agenda for more power. So be careful of this group in the nonsense they put out. The reality is we do not want to live in their version of the world afterwards.
Signs of the Economic War

We are witnessing the Russian ruble tank as oil prices continue on a downward slide. Then we hear about president Putin’s possible resignation. Could this be what they really wanted from Russia?

We can now see the Saudi and Iraq competition for buyers of their oil. We are now hearing we can expect oil prices to drop to as low as $25-30 a barrel and bring gas to pre-2008 prices at the pumps.  

Is this an economic war? . The question is not if there is a war but rather how far will it go and what will be the final outcome?

 It is now very apparent. There are some major adjustments being made as are result. I am not an economist and I do not have all the answers. Much of what we are witnessing baffles me too. But I do not just sit and wait. I reach out and investigate and look for the reasons why. Always I point to the same question – Why?

I have talked to many economist and financial guru’s. They all tell me the same as to why the value of the US dollar  is now so high in the midst of all this turmoil.

They say the USA used the shale oil production to force the drop in middle eastern oil prices. A brilliant move on the part of USA president Obama only now it is no longer cost effective to produce oil from shale. These efforts will most likely shut down. So what is the next move?  This must have been predicted.

What we do know for sure it was economic blackmail and used as leverage. The US economy is so very much tied to the price of energy. When the cost of energy is low the dollar goes up. Let me explain the ripple effect going on here.

My question is this now. Can the USA be middle east independent of its oil? There is talk about the USA putting together its own oil market, controlling prices for North American oil outside of the middle eastern countries.

You see the new plan is all about where you market the oil as to how much you pay for it. So for the middle eastern oil with markets in India, China and Europe there will be one market.

Then for oil consumed in North America another market. Each market separates its cost of production separately. Thus oil in the USA stays low as needed for the economy to rise.

Why am I telling you this?

I am trying to explain what is happening behind the scenes. What we now witness on our TV screens is not coincidental. They are actually showing us the method but we do not see the big picture.

We can not piece together the puzzle since we do not have all the pieces. Let me give you  few more pieces so you can begin to see the larger picture.

There is a plan to separate territories of the globe into 5 currency regions. Most people have no clue as to this plan and how it is taking effect right in front of our noses. They will use the excuse to implement this plan as to decrease this rising energy costs for North America and to handle the uncontrollable massive debt of the USA.

About the Amero Coin

Time to put this conspiracy to rest……lol…There is also a plan to form the “North American Union” and to rollout a single currency for Canada, USA and Mexico. However this is something for the future. This new currency is not the “Amero” currency as some say it is already minted. 

Various warnings about the USA, Canada and Mexico losing their sovereignty, merging into a North American Union and switching to a single currency known as the Amero.   A video by Hal Turner claims that these are already in use in trade agreements with China.   

The Truth is this an  eRumor is based on a collector's coin and on fears that the North Atlantic Free Trade Agreement could be the first step toward loss of sovereignty for the United States. 

The Amero coin does exist, but is not American currency.  It is a collector coin designed by a man named Daniel Carr and available for sale on a web site called the Amero Currency Site.  This product is marketed for coin collectors and coin enthusiasts but it is not legal tender.
~~~
The Amero Currency site says that visitors can "Buy Ameros for educational purposes, as novelties and conversation starters at the first tee !!!"  The site says that the coin is being sold to raise awareness of the NAFTA trade agreements between Canada, United States and Mexico but the marketing of this coin has spun into a conspiracy theory.

www.swissamerica.com/offer/amero.php

www.truthorfiction.com/rumors/a/amero.htm

Moving on…

We will see shortly how they first will separate these oil markets since the impact would be too great on the interdependencies of the middle eastern oil as it would/could drag down the new North America Union currency of the future

We are now seeing the first step in this process as we watch this economic war on oil being played out. The separation of  the markets is taking place. I believe pressure will be put on this separation in order to keep shale oil production up in North America unaffected by middle eastern oil prices. Think this is really weird? Think again !

In short- when the dollar goes up there is a higher demand for goods. This has happened due to a drop in oil prices. Companies then reach out for loans to begin their production cycles. When production is up and goods are sold the value of investment stocks rise. Speculation that more is to come.

 The demand for the US dollar goes up even more as the economy picks up. I have been saying this to myself for over 10 years. If the US really wanted to do something about the economic recovery why not just figure out a way to bring cheap energy into the market. This is now being done. We are witnessing the impact.

I know one thing for sure-  the USA will not step in to aid or assist Russia this time . They are on their own unless they pull out of the Ukraine and guarantee to stay out of any of the former Soviet Union Block countries. Somehow president Putin seems to think the cold war is still on. His resignation may also be another demand.

Past Iraqi budget surpluses – Where did all the money go?

This week also the Iraqi finance committee announced that they have audited their banks on past budget surpluses. They have come up with over 180+ trillion dinars missing. They were hoping they could use these funds to fill the gaps for 2015 budget. They were hoping to find that the banks receiving the funds go back as far as 2004 still maintained the funds since many planned projects were never completed.

Their findings so far show that there are trillions of dinars unaccounted for. Does this surprise us? They pledged to take up the effort of finding the parties responsible and bring them to justice.

They actually said they wanted to wait till the budget is fully implemented first. I believe they also have to clean up the justice system first before many of these culprits can be brought to true justice. You know who I am referring to …. don’t you?

Provincial Council – De-centralization of the Iraq Gov’t

Today I bring you a quick update on the progress of this effort. Iraq is waiting the National Guard bill to provide funding for the security forces throughout the various provinces. Talk now is that this is needed prior to announcement of the completed budget. I will not talk much about this effort since I did explain it all many times already in past news letters.

Many articles came out this week and stated  they are progressing  towards the full rollout of the Articles 116 and 122 of the Iraq constitution that guarantees the de-centralization of the state concept.

They even listed the ministries now sharing power with the GOI ministries. This is actually very amazing and I have been waiting to witness this implementation of the “Power Sharing” for a long time.

We all should know that Maliki blocked this effort by filling a repeal of these articles from their constitution and used his “rigged” courts to stall any formal hearing on the repeal.  Just recently the repeal was decided upon and it was denied. It is now official. These articles will be enforced.

Actually Dr Allawi (head of the Provincial Council – or Federation Council) always knew the end result and as I explained many times already they have been moving anyhow in this direction of implementation regardless of Maliki’s repeal efforts. This is how they are able to be now so advanced in their efforts even though the repeal was just recently denied.
So when can we expect the RV?

Everything I present to you today is interconnected and meaningful in getting the revaluation of the Iraq dinar but most importantly they need to return to an international currency. I am hearing that if the economic wars persist and worsen, it could mean trouble and lead to yet just another USA excuse as to why Iraq can not yet go international.

On the other hand I am also hearing that Iraq and the USA agreed to let the RV proceed this coming week and use this new window timeframe I mentioned above to complete the rollout. The timing is now perfect! I do not want to predict a date but this is what I am hearing from my CBI contact.

I have been attempting to concentrate in many of my news letters on the implementation of the Iraq constitution since this too along with the Erbil Agreement of 2009-10 as a requirement of the IQD to a globally traded status with a new value.

I have intentionally picked out parts of the constitution I knew have been stalled for various reasons and have not been implemented such as Articles 112 (oil and gas), 122 (de-centralization of ministries), 140 (disputed territories) and others.

Since September 2014, when Abadi officially became the prime minister, we have seen so much progress in these areas of concern. Many of the Sunni demands of the 27 Reforms (in order to form the new Abadi government) I have so affectionately talked about in many, many of my news letters, are also now completed.

We are seeing the stabilization of the on-ground security in the country. Sure it may not be perfect but is it good enough as Mosul and now Anbar are being retaken and ISIS kicked out. This too I have been saying is a requirement being met for the RV.

There is simply not much, if anything, to complete to qualify for the revaluation and rollout to international status. We are now at this point. Iraq has made up for lost time of the past 4 years in only 4 months. Kudos goes out to Abadi and his government.

These constitutional articles require legislation for full implementation since the constitution states WHAT not HOW they will be enforced. The former Maliki administration repeatedly blocked these laws and/or walked out of the negotiations.

We now witness the complete reversal by the Abadi administration in these matters. This is all good and we know there is very little left to accomplish in these areas, if any. Remember the USA is not requiring FULL and COMPLETE implementation but rather wants an assurance they are progressing and completing their constitutional implementation  since it is the basis of their newly formed democracy.

After all the war was all about democracy was it not? With the infancy of this country now this is the primary job of the new prime minister. This is what Maliki should have been doing.

Dr Shabibi has just returned from a trip to the USA to convince them that Iraq has both the political, economic and on-ground needed stability for the RV. So what is next?

So we wait once again and see what comes of this new rollout strategy. There is a new window of RV opportunity. Remember too that each RV window missed puts yet more pressure on the situation in Iraq. The balloon can only inflate under pressure so long and then it POPS !
