TNT CHAT UPDATE, 11 AUGUST

8-11-15 TNT:

Elmerf123456: 
 Good evening everyone! Is everyone feeling Froggy? Cause we are about to jump soon to a new Lilly Pad!

Red letter day is forecasted in the Dow! Slide will continue with manipulation on the dollar. Trying (China with Auto-correct?) is the pay will continue to make the market slide and there will be no option left but to push the RV through

Perfect storm is right over our heads

China depegging was a huge huge thing today

I am telling you everything is lined up the way it should be ...China made bold moves Iraq made bold moves and our bold move is about to come soon

Ram1:  Elmer how will what China did affect us?

Elmerf123456:  Do you think for one moment that Iraq with their reforms in China with the D pegging was coincidental in the same week actually within 12 hours of each other?

I think not !

Martha:  Are u ready for the final round? Iko says the markets are more than ready for possibly tonight/wed… China created the ace in the hole,   the markets dove and oil dropped to its lowest.  The button has been pushed!

The end of the petro dollar and fiat currency control !... Follow the gold everyone…. this is all the Perfect Storm and the financial world still doesnt get it… we are awaiting some further market movement and some intel points to today and banks wed/thurs

Red:  Bruce has said the whales have been paid and the largest groups have been paid, maybe the rest of the groups will get to go this week and then us

Elmerf123456:  I do not want to cause any panic or give anyone reason to start living on a timeline as you all know I'm against that... but I will tell you that this is very ,very close and the stars have aligned and the perfect chart in respect to the Dow and also the freefall that will happen because of the unpegging with the Chinese makes our situation even brighter

Lealoha: Elmer - why would we panic? We've been living on a timeline for almost 2 years already....what is below the tip of the iceberg?

Elmerf123456:  I disagree I have never lived on a timeline but many have an allow themselves for peaks and valleys of emotion ...I always follow direction and the destination and I'm telling you the destination is here

Elmerf123456:  Stay away from ridiculous offers... this will come out as a Fiat Fiat exchange initially and then over a short period of time go to an asset-backed currency.. This is how things are shaping up and it is my opinion that's how we'll go down

Martha:  The paymasters are done and we are next …I was told wed/thurs plus after the set up of markets today the next 24 hours will make it public

Elmerf123456:  Everyone because of what happened you're going to see people coming out of the woodwork I want to give you a price and let you know that's what you're going to get …you've waited this long ..wait until you can actually go to the bank and forget all the other deals hang onto your Currency very tightly and don't bend

Everyone has been selling people lies …this market has being forced to do what it is…  the markets going to go down lower because of what China is doing … has made a bold move by D pegging from the UST… that's going to cause a lot of panic in the markets and the commodities as well but that's what we need to do to shake things up to get what we need

Elmerf123456:  Martha explain to everyone why the D pegging with the Chinese is a huge event for all of us and why the market is going down and why the Currency is being manipulated going up that cannot be done forever so this will push us to the GCR

Martha: okay the devalue was a needed correction for the gcr and the depegging was sort of a slap in the US face. This a perfect set up for the gcr/rv. the next 24 hours will be very telling but the money reform is completed and all they need is a reality rate and NOW

Fitzgerald:  THIS THING IS PUBLIC NOW…. CANT STOP THE TRAIN

Martha:  Remember we are in the moment… any second. everything is done!

Iko Ward:  Guys just to clarify on this 2AM thing if it goes it will be 3AM EST due to daylight savings time…. I'm waiting to see what Forex says after 8PM in a little while. Usually they set up the world around 8:10.

BLUWOLF UPDATE : "Final Cleanup On Aisle 5 Is In Full Throttle", 11 AUGUST

BLUWOLF: Good afternoon,  Much positive news coming out of Iraq, people have been displaced, separated and arrested, it affects certain greedy cabal individuals stateside. 

The final cleanup on aisle 5 is in full throttle. All borders for dinar export are most definitely closed. 

All broker or dealers have been informed to stop the movement of sales. 

All TRN are officially golden standard, 

An individual claiming to be some kind of paymaster to a specific recognized group, I find in my opinion that his assertion on this matter to be strange, new and not so to my major knowledge.  I would advise credentials just to make things clear on this subject. 

We are now anxious awaiting this final phone call.  It all squares down to this part of the ride. It is finally on the US best interest to give the signal on this impending GCR and 204 Country  Revaluation. 

The hyperinflation speech is well past due and must be announced shortly without further ado, no more schemes or lies by this or any government. 

These are my views on our current situation here and abroad. 

Please have all your paperwork ready for we await a high government official signal and that is in that happening.

God bless, Happy Journeys, Na'maste, Bluwolf  (you may post everywhere)

TNT CHAT MORE UPDATES, 11 AUGUST

TNT:

Iko Ward :  So tonight is when we are really going to see the global reactions. We'll get the during the day. Right now the markets are all down with Germany showing the biggest reaction of 2.35%. ISX bumped up a little last night to just over 890. x showed it's best value since January of 1115.4. An exciting day ahead as the news unfolds.

And the exchange rumors are flying.

China devalues and a unanimous vote in the Iraqi Parliament?

The room is going to be an emotional roller-coaster today until we get a call either way from Tony. Nothing to do now but continue waiting and enjoy the process.

It is all rolling out just as some of us thought it would. Work the plan.

Gold Soars After Chinese Currency Devaluation 

8-11-15_ Tyler Durden

Yesterday, immediately in the aftermath of the PBOC's dramatic devaluation announcement, we remarked the following:

zerohedge 0n Twitter:

"Been a while since tens of millions of Chinese rushed into gold and bitcoin"

To be sure, while it will take the Chinese mainland a few more hours to realize just what happened, and that once you unleash the devaluation genie in a global currency war you can't simply put it back in, which means over one billion Chinese will soon be scrambling to preserve their purchasing power (but not in the stock market which particular bubble burst just last month and taught millions a very harsh lesson in get rich quick schemes), some fast thinkers realized that not only will capital outflows explode in the coming weeks and months, but that holding one's savings in Yuan will be, well, foolish.

As a result, after initially tumbling for some inexplicable reason after the PBOC announcement, gold is now soaring back to levels from mid-July and going higher.

GOLD CHART:
Picture
Here we eagerly await as the BIS' Benoit Gilson sells a few billion in paper gold just to reset the price of gold lower as a surge in gold, and a loss of faith in paper money, at this juncture in just broken out global currency wars, is the last thing the central banks' central bank can afford.

But wait, there's more: because any day now the PBOC will update its revised foreign reserve and gold holdings. And so the next big leg up in gold will take place when it is revealed that the PBOC had only exposed a portion of its "new" total gold inventory, and that with every passing month it will simply reveal more and more as central-planning conditions demand it.

Tishwash:  Five arrested in insider trading hacking scheme

http://www.valuewalk.com/2015/08/insider-trading-hack/


via Reuters:  Five people were arrested and are in U.S. custody, charged in an insider trading scheme that generated more than $30 million in illegal profits, an FBI spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

The scheme, which ran for 5 years, involved traders who employed hackers to steal confidential corporate news releases.

On Tuesday, U.S. authorities revealed that they had broken up the insider trading ring, which raked in over $30 million in illegal profits, and are set to file criminal charges against 9 people, according to The New York Times.

Hacking and insider trading combine in sophisticated scheme


The case is noteworthy because of the combination of hacking and insider trading. The first arrests were made Tuesday morning, and a press conference will be given in Newark. Top officials, including Jeh Johnson, secretary for Homeland Security, and Mary Jo White, chairwoman of the S.E.C., are expected to discuss the charges.

Prosecutors unsealed an indictment against 5 men on Tuesday morning. They are accused of hacking companies such as Business Wire, PR Newswire, and MarketWire in order to steal over 150,000 news releases before they were sent out to the public.

The scheme involved hackers based in Eastern Europe and U.S.-based traders, and generated tens of millions of dollars in profit. Authorities allege that the traders provided "shopping lists" of different kinds of news releases to enable insider trading. Among those companies targeted were Bank of America, The Clorox Co (NYSE:CLX), Caterpillar and Honeywell.

S.E.C. takes steps to protect sensitive business information
A similar case was filed in 2005, when the S.E.C. filed charges against traders based in Estonia, who were hacking Business Wire in a similar scheme. Although hacking news releases has previously been used to gain an illegal edge on the market, this latest scheme is far more developed than previous ones.

Last year, security research firm FireEye claimed to have uncovered a group of hackers known as Fin4, which attempted to infiltrate the email systems of pharmaceutical and financial companies to gain information about deals. FireEye shared the results of its investigation with the S.E.C. and the FBI.

The S.E.C. has previously asked a number of companies to share information about data stolen from their networks during cyber attacks, which may be used for insider trading. Similar requests have also been made of large public relations firms, according to The The New York Times Company (NYSE:NYT), which cites a person briefed on the matter but not authorized to speak publicly.

DINAR GURUS UPDATE, 11 AUGUST

8-11-2015   Intel Guru Frank26   During the last 4-5 days...the “displaced” funds...all funds that were embezzled...the funds are coming back to Iraq.  All that was stolen is pouring back into the banks into Iraq. It is the start of the RI ...that is what we are focusing on. Abadi wants to work for the people...All of the “issues” that have plagued Iraq don’t matter anymore – it’s time for the people...time for the citizens.  So the IMF told them to get rid of Alak (the acting Governor of the CBI). There is a massive round-up of corruption...that is what is needed to raise the value of the currency.  Iraq has big assets and they must come out as an RI and then into an RV.  [post 2 of 2]

8-11-2015   Intel Guru Frank26
   Last week we talked about the BONDS – phase 1 and phase 2.  Those BONDS were a “test-run”.  Finch released its credit rating for Iraq  which was a "B-" and Jabouri was not excited about this because he was expecting an “A” but because Iraq hasn’t completed Article 8 (which they had the Green-Light to do)... this was a warning shot to Iraq.  Until Dr. Shabibi lifts the currency of Iraq there is a BLOCKAGE at the CBI. So they held a meeting... In the meeting (last Saturday)...the IMF said to the CBI (basically Dr. Shabibi) “...you should have qualified for Article 8 by now...?”  With that said we’re going to start a massive round-up of corruption   (which has started...)   All corrupt officials have been dealt with. Maliki tried to flee Iraq but he was stopped. All of his cars, money... everything is now in possession of the GOI and the GOI’s laws.  SECURITY kills corruption!  [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]

8-11-2015   Newshound/Intel Guru BGG
   [is it safe to assume that after this big shakeup in the goi that there will be a cool down period where not much gets done.]  not according to Zebari and everyone else - this thing is just now getting wound up!!   

8-11-2015   Newshound Guru Millionday
    PARLIAMENT IS EXPECTED TO MEET TO VOTE IN ALL ABADI HAS STATED TODAY TO ACTIVATE ALL REFORMS --CORRUPTION LAWS -- ECONOMIC REFORMS AND ALL SERVICES.  TOMORROW [TUESDAY] WE SHOULD START TO SEE SOME CHANGES TO REACH THESE STEPS IN THIS CRISIS SOLVING MOVE...  THE PRIVATE SECTOR LOANS ACTIVATION WILL NOT HELP MUCH WITH THE AMOUNT AGREED ON UNLESS IT COMES WITH THE ECONOMIC PROGRAM AND PLAN IS ACTIVATED TOO.  INTERNATIONAL NEWS ANNOUNCED THAT TOMORROW [TUESDAY] IRAQ WILL BE MAKING ANNOUNCEMENTS TO CITIZENS/INVESTORS AND THE EMERGENCY MEETING TO MAKE THE REFORMS HAPPEN IS ON TUESDAY IN PARLIAMENT TO BE VOTED THROUGH.

8-11-2015   Newshound Guru Kaperoni
   ...opening the banking system to the world is clearly what international organizations (IMF/WB) are helping Iraq with.  And surely, those decisions are discreet.  Sounds to me Abadi is going to allow the process to move forward.  Hopefully very soon!  

8-11-2015   Newshound Guru Aggiedad77
  Article:  "Abadi confirms that there are other packages of reforms at the same level"  Get ready citizens of Iraq...there are more reforms being worked at this moment...more reforms than just the sacking of certain government officials who may have been caught in the corruption roundup...reforms that will bring an end to terrorist threats... reforms that will ensure more jobs and improvements in living conditions...watch for these efforts at the same time the government is undergoing its huge reform as well.

8-11-2015   Newshound/Intel Guru BGG
   Article quote:  "Revealed reliable sources from within the Baghdad International Airport that Nuri al-Maliki tried to leave Iraq to Syria on a private jet in secret..."    MALIKI IS TRYING TO LEAVE IRAQ TO SYRIA IN SECRET.   Looks like Maliki is "refusing" to step down...he's toast...things are very hot on the homefront for Maliki.   ...him "refusing to step down" (IMO) will only speed his demise.  why is all of this important?  Maliki being dealt with directly and completely opens the door wide for all kinds of reform - Monetary Reform being at the very top of the list.

NOW READ IT THINK ABOUT IT AND THEN REPLACE ONE WORD IN IT AND READ IT AGAIN!!!!!

THEN TELL ME WHY IT IS IN IRAQS BUSINESS SECTION TODAY!!!!!

Global reform experiments .. Czech mode   http://www.imn.iq/news/view.73324/***********

AW: 
 Tuesday, August 11, 2015 - 17:10   The United Nations welcomes the reforms AbadiToday's articles appear to support the point I tried to make on our call that the moves by PM Abadi may very well be a continuation of the reforms the west (USA, NATO,etc.) have repeatly encouraged Abadi to follow through with.

MY LADIES:  OR MAYBE AW THEY ARE FOLLOWING A MODEL FROM SOMEWHERE!

AW:  Mary,......hmmmmm….[10:52:15 AM] Alan White: Very interesting.................it appears there are many similarities:The transition process has to 0 a market economy in the Czech Republic on the five foundations of economic reform are:

First: the liberalization of prices and foreign trade.

Second: the unification of the national currency exchange rate.

Third: privatization.

Fourth, monetary and fiscal consolidation.

Fifth: tax reform.

AW:  Where there is smoke......there is.........????

There are so many of these questions as to why are they doing this and that.........

I do not believe in all of this being coincidental.

PrincessDD-  WOW….I think they will follow the same model. And they are showing that they are showing what they intend to do.

Rocket Rich:  The Iraqis are using the Czech model utilizing privatization to move their economy's growth into hyperdrive.  This was a communist country not too long ago and it is a market economy now.  I was actually in Prague last summer and the place is beautiful. Markets everywhere and tourism abounds.  Free enterprise!

MY LADIES:  RIGHT BUT IF YOU READ THIS CZECH MODEL AND REPLACE CZECH WITH IRAQ, THERE IS ONLY ONE THING MISSING.

AND IF YOU SEE THE BOTTOM THE CZECH REFORMS STARTED OVER ELECTRICTY PROTESTS TOO...

Rocket Rich:   Iraq is showing this in their business pages to say, this is where we are headed.  It worked for the Czechs, it is working for us and we will even improve on the process.

MY LADIES:  (Applause)  FOR YOU RICH..

IQD NOVA:  RICH IS THE MAN!!!!!!!

Rocket Rich:  Thanks.  I guess my only question is how far along in the process are we with Iraq?

IQD NOVA:  WITH WHAT WE READ YOU TELL ME.

PrincessDD:  well they are at the tax reforms part of this model which puts us back at any time now.

Rocket Rich:  From the article:  "The foreign investors did not accept often Czech estimates of corporate assets. Whatever the results Czech privatization experience, the process has for the most part, and it was decided the completion of the privatization programs in full during the year, as the government raised at the time of the remaining companies in the energy and power sector privatization to foreign companies in order in order to reduce the dependence of states on Russia for oil and gas import ."

If the Iraqis are bitter about their lack of electricity, we are apparently near the end of the transformation for Iraq too.

**********

IQD NOVA:  What has the CBI told us about the rollout of the New Exchange Rate of the Dinar?

What Does This Article Tell Us About That?

Rocket Rich: "Third-Privatization Fourth-monetary and financial installation."  So we are just waiting on the money to get injected into the system, right?

Bandito Rox:  Abadi has a surprise for Thursday I believe. I'll let ML bring it in.

BaNDiTo_RoX: And there's ink to back up what Abadi said.. .. He's on a ball now.. Get it done! NOW

 (*) Abadi's office for "Eye Iraq": Wait for new reforms package soon

BAGHDAD / .. The spokesman for the office of Prime Minister Saad al-Hadithi, Tuesday, that the coming days will be issued Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi new package of reforms at all levels. http://aynaliraqnews.com/index.php?aa=news&id22=43396

MY LADIES:  "Third-Privatization Fourth-monetary and financial installation."  So we are just waiting on the money to get injected into the system, right?

THAT SEEMS TO BE THE ONLY STEP MISSING SO FAR THE SECOND STEP

Second: the unification of the national currency exchange rate.

AW:  What has the CBI told us about the rollout of the New Exchange Rate of the Dinar?

What Does This Article Tell Us About That?  Second item on the list.

MY LADIES:  RIGHT, SO WE CAN ADD THIS GLOBAL EXPERIMENT TO THE URGENCY OF IRAQ NOW AND PERHAPS WE ARE JUST ABOUT DONE.

AW:  BTW, Chechs use their own currency and NOT the Euro.

MY LADIES:  YES AND ISN'T THAT INTERSTING TOO,   

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Czech_koruna


http://www.cnb.cz/cs/index.html

AW:  "The Czech Republic planned to adopt the euro in 2010, but its government suspended that plan indefinitely in 2005.[1] Although the country is economically well positioned to adopt the euro, there is considerable opposition to the move within the Czech Republic.[2] According to a survey conducted in April 2014, only 16% of the Czech population was in favour of replacing the koruna with euro.[3]"                         It's like they knew to stay away from the Euro.  I'm sure national pride had something to do with that too.  

PrincessDD:  Wow it seems much closer today. I was bummed out by the SDR/September 2016 article. This is much much better.

MY LADIES:  OH YEA PRINCESS THE SDR HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH US UNTIL WE GO OFF THE DOLLAR SYSTEM AND ONTO THE SDR MODEL, UP UNTIL THAT POINT THE SDR IS JUST REPRESENTING THE WEIGHT AND  WORTH OF A COUNTRY...SO NO DELAYS BECAUSE OF THAT...

PrincessDD:  First: the liberalization of prices and foreign trade. Is this the part with the Tariffs etc?

MY LADIES:  NO THE TARIFFS WOULD BE FIFTH, THE LIBERALIZATION OF PRICES AND FOREIGN TRADE IS THE ABILITY TO MOVE TO A MARKET ECONOMY

PrincessDD:   Ah the international trading?

MVL:   I may be off the mark, but it seems to me the only piece missing at this point is an internationally traded currency...

MY LADIES:   YEP NUMBER 2 THAT'S ALL...

IQD NOVA:  YES!!

PrincessDD:  I wonder what is left before they do that next step? What are they waiting on?

AW:  MVL,...............i.e.........the mechanism....yes?

MY LADIES:  THE MECHANISM...YES!

PrincessDD:  We have been seeing more the last week or so about the mechanism.  ML does the mechanism have to do with the oil exports?

MY LADIES:  I DONT THINK SO, I THINK THIS IS THE CONVERSION MECHANISM THAT WILL MAKE THE DINAR CONVERTABLE GLOBALLY …..HOLD ON I'M READING SOMETHING NOW ON IT..

ANONYMOUS UPDATE, 11 AUGUST

In reading both public and personal posts across dinar land, I am reminded once again how general perceptions can be subconsciously influenced by certain sources of "information".

For instance, when we hear that the RV has been attempted over and over again without success (statements like "it was supposed to go last weekend, but it didn't), do we then conclude that "something is stopping it", or that something needs to "force the RV" to happen?

Do we know who is trying to do something?

Do we know what it is that they are trying to do?  Is the RV really being stopped or was the event we think we are waiting for not the actual event that was reportedly supposed to go?

Maybe what we are hearing from Pop Culture Dinar Land is not specifically related to the actual event that will trigger our exchanges.
As we continue to hear over and over and over again that "it was supposed to go", "all is a go for tonight", and "it was stopped", one must ask the pertinent question; why are we allowed to receive news that it is supposed to happen (pick a window), everything is readyit has to go by (pick a date) but then only continue to wait as nothing happens as was reported?

Furthermore, we never hear the reason why it hasn't happened, as if this information was super secret.  Well, if it's super secret, why are we allowed to be leaked information in the first place on when it is supposed to go - wouldn't that be considered super secret as well Hmmmmm.... you guessed it... the reason is because the information is not accurate, and/or serves a specific agenda.

Bottom line: The information/reports/rumors about what and when things are supposed to happen are plentiful, however, no information about why this information never pans out is ever reported.

 And there is our BIG CLUE.  Why do I say all of this?

Because when we begin to believe that something needs to force the GCR, or that it's being stopped for some nefarious reason, or that the actual exchange event was really even supposed to go at the reported time/date in the first place, we should stop and ask ourselves why we believe our assumptions that form our conclusions to be accurate.
The time for exchanges is coming. 
The new financial system (reset for lack of a better descriptor) is in process. There is a plan, protocol, and process. 

What makes us question all of this, and in some cases, completely miss the clues and evidence all around us, is because we are making assumptions and basing conclusions to our assumptions on completely inaccurate and totally misleading Dinar Land Pop Culture reports/rumors/information.

Consequently, the endless angst and emotional extremes.

We are pounding on an iron door with a rock trying to get through - thinking that if we only hit the door faster or harder we will break that door open.

Then, along comes someone with a key, opens the door, smiles and says, "after you"...

 The "allowed" info forms our assumptions, our assumptions create conscious conclusions (false conclusions) and this allows us to be manipulated into a certain state of expectation... and the consequential, emotional drama of those expectations going unmet.

Martha:  Remember it isn't about Iraq anymore. Today is an anniversary for Abadi-he had one year to do everything

Rene5555:  Martha what are we waiting for now??? What is the next step?

Martha: IMO,  Abadi is now showing his accomplishments and we’re not waiting for anything…. If you have been following all our sources the button was pushed and now that all the entities have signed off on money treaties you may see the rv today….. I had intel for today and banks wed-thurs

Mangelo:  I told my friend watch for today, it's Abadi's anniversary day and wouldn't it be nice that the RV would be launched today!!!!

Martha:  did everyone understand about devaluing to revaluing? this is necessary for the reset… all countries have to brought into sync… remember you will have an international rate but you will also have a market rate

Martha:  every country that is involved with this basket of currency has devalued including now the yuan, the rupiah, vnd, and the dinar.They need to be in sync with the USD at 1:1 approx the reset then you go immediately to the revaluation…. remember that all zero's are being changed as well depending on the country. it's moving decimal points in most cases

TnDr:  Martha, what is your opinion of the rumor of $9 iqn?

Martha:  Tndr you will have an international rate and a market rate. Tony had mentioned months ago about a float up to 9.60 for a while then it would return to within .50 of Kuwait which I believe is also in the first basket of currency

Martha:  remember there are 20t/- countries in the first basket some will increase, some will go down

Desertjar5:  Wow, just heard on CBS news here in the woods that China devalued their currency, what's next, oh yea, revalue.

Elmerf123456:  China big moves. De peg time.

Martha:  this is a great move for china and the yuan. remember the USD is in this basket of currency.  next basket the USD is out and that basket is a repeat of the first plus some other new emerging countries

MNT. GOAT UPDATE , 11 AUGUST

UU6726 – “A Critical Junction”  by Mnt Goat

Hello Everyone,

Here in my little village of Bavaria already we plan for fall festivities. Harvest season is near and the fields are green and full of crops. The cattle are fattened and almost ready for slaughter. Meinen Kinder too are thinking about returning to school and prepare. Wow how this summer is passing quickly!

The tourist season is still in high gear and will continue until after Munich Oktoberfest season and then to winter sports in Alps. So business is good.

It is weird as it seems like just yesterday our village was celebrating the springtime Maibaum (Maypole) fest and I informed you of the great news I had just learned to assist us as to why this RV is stalled. Like spring this news was refreshing and we looked forward to seeing it all play out as the summertime rolled on.
....
This news was about the process/plan and the requirements for Iraq to complete the necessary laws to support the Reconciliation Reforms and other reforms. We learned this was a prerequisite to any currency reform and was mandatory before we could see any RV.

The news from Iraq did not tell us all the needed reforms as they would only give us bits and pieces of this effort. However there were subtle hints of what was to come.

If we were paying much attention we could see the long range timeline just months away. If we were smart we learned to ignore all this hype about this everyday / any day nonsense since we now knew better. If we were smart we also learned to change who we were listening too for our news of Iraqi events.

At this time we also learned about a coalition being put together to combat the infiltration of ISIS and DAASH   and the newly elected prime minister told us they had a target to get ISIS under control by early summer (which would be late June early July.

The CBI told us at this time they needed a level of security to protect not only the citizens, tourists and investors but   to clean up the monetary corruption, Iranian counterfeiting practices and the Maliki influence.

Then in August we witnessed the kickoff of major military operations to retake Anbar / Mosul regions. This is still ongoing and has had some successes and failures.

But now we are at a junction point since the timelines to past agreements and targets are close to expiring and we know this can’t continue forever.

So we expected to see a major shake up in Iraq soon and it seems we are now witnessing it. Remember there is always a lull before the storm.


I will explain all this all in more detail to you today and try to explain why each event is important and the progression going forward to see this currency reform to its completion. Sorry today’s news letter is a bit long. So shut off your cell phone, get on your computer and print this off. Then get a nice hot cup of coffee and sit quietly to read.

If you have not done so already please read my 8/6 news letter as today’s news is a continued saga of this Iraqi revaluation.  LINK

Today’s News

Today is Tuesday August 11th and still we have no news of an RV.


[Update: on the Reconciliation Reforms]

As I mentioned weeks ago this is now what we should be watching for the most. This is in full swing and lots of pressure to complete these reforms now. How do they implement these reforms? They pass laws and then the provinces and the ministries are expected to carry out the new laws.

Some say these news laws don’t matter or are constantly telling you they are all done. They are either full of BS or simply have no handle on the pulse of Iraq. Obviously if you want real news these are not the “gurus” you should be listening to.

So why do you think these protestors are so angry once again? Lots of promises made and still no real concrete successes for them to see.

I mentioned in my last couple news letters that at each month end, the government of Abadi is reviewed for progress on these reconciliation reforms. We now know they conducted the July “report card” and out of this we found out that there are 30 reforms total and about 24 of them are now done. There are laws that need to be passed and implemented in order to satisfy these reforms.

They are almost down to the end of their timeframe to complete these reforms as mid August upon us.

The rest of the reforms (6) are on a short leash for completion. A year ago Abadi made promises to implement the reforms in order to take control and to form the new government. He had 1 year from August 14th 2014.

The government is considered FULLY formed but ONLY after these reforms (and others) are implemented. I have been saying this over and over again for months now and I firmly believe it to be true. We can see all  the importance on this handful of laws as many articles are telling us this too. Anyone who tells you differently simply does not know what they are talking about.

Since today is August 11th does it surprise you why I have been now saying we are approaching an excellent window of opportunity for a revaluation to occur but only if Abadi can pull off completing these reforms on time (August 14th).

I am not saying an RV will happen on Aug 14th so please do not put words in my mouth.
In fact I can almost bet you it won’t. But this is a close enough window to watch for it.

I believe the hint to us will be an announcement of a “package” of laws ratified by president Masoum on or around this deadline. There will be no fan fair or “dancing” or “parties” in the streets of Iraq to celebrate…lol…. In fact most of the people in Iraq will not even notice the change in value until they get the lower denoms as they go to the banks, ATMs or exchange their dollars for the new dinars.

Remember they have a law in place outlawing the use of dollars. They are not enforcing the law as of yet because they know of the delay in currency reforms and thus the US Dollar (USD) is the alternative since they already collected the majority of the larger 3 zero notes from the citizens. Their currency is like being in a holding pattern.

We know these last 6 remaining laws have been held up and are the most controversial and so this may be the showstopper. We know for a fact too Maliki and his goons still play a major role in influencing some of the parliament members to hold back on these laws and stall them. Many say this does not matter and again I ask you why in hell you keep listening to them since they do not have clue as to what is really happening in Iraq.

We can only watch and wait to see how Abadi and Jubouri can manage to pull this off. I am sure they will do some quick political maneuvering to circumvent these entities.

We know they are having 2 parliamentary sessions today to try to pass all the remaining laws to support the needed reforms. Can this be the week we see this “basket” of laws?

[New Inter-Governmental Reforms]
There are also other issues pending also that need to be addressed prior to any RV. I will also cover an update on these issues too. We are also seeing much progress in these issues.

Here is something more to add to the mix of reforms on corruption. Article follows. Are you surprised?

Can now see how Maliki’s is now venerable?

Since Iraq seems to be moving more towards a western model of government and away from the British model, do you think they may maintain at lease one vice president? Since Tariq al-Hashemi's  has not completed his term as VP (while under Maliki administration). Could he be the one selected to rightfully to take this position?

Premier Haider al-Abadi, Facing Protests, Proposes Iraqi Government Overhaul

BAGHDAD — Facing widespread protests against government corruption and poor services, as well as a crucial call for change from the country’s top Shiite cleric, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi proposed on Sunday to radically reshape the dysfunctional political system of Iraq that has been entrenched since the American-led invasion in 2003.

The proposals, which came as the war against Islamic State militants has stalled in western Anbar Province, are wide-ranging and include a new corruption inquiry and the elimination of what has been a hallmark of the American-imposed system: sectarian and party quotas in the appointment of top officials. Dramatically, Mr. Abadi also vowed to eliminate the three vice presidency positions, largely ceremonial jobs that come with expensive perks.

Those jobs are currently held by three figures who have dominated Iraqi politics since the United States toppled Saddam Hussein’s regime: the former prime minister NURI KAMAL AL-MALIKI, a Shiite; Ayad Allawi, a Shiite whose Sunni-dominated bloc won the most seats in national elections in 2010; and Osama al-Nujaifi, a prominent Sunni Arab leader.

[Banking Reforms]
This next article about sums up the necessity to complete these banking reforms before any international rollout of currency reform. Can you now see the connection. Their words not mine !

Article Begins:

Zebari: any delay the reform process will reflect negatively on the credibility of Iraq in front of the international financial institutions.      

http://www.alliraqnews.com/modules/news/article.php?storyid=12287


Finance Minister Hoshyar Zebari warned Monday that any delay in the reform process will reflect negatively on the credibility of Iraq in front of the international financial institutions.

According to a ministry statement received by the agency all of Iraq  a copy of it that Zebari "chaired with the Governor of the Central Bank, the meeting was attended by the President of the Board of Supreme Audit and Director of the Rafidain and Rasheed Bank and a number of the Ministry of Finance experts and Central Bank to consider the restructuring of the two banks mentioned through the banking system overall application and the possibility of increasing the capital of the two banks in order to enable the exercise of the overall banking operation, including commercial banking. "

said Zebari, during the meeting on "the importance of the financial and banking system reform so that it is consistent with the International Standards especially after the IRAQ GET A CREDIT RATING AND BECAME PART OF THE MOVEMENT OF GLOBAL CAPITAL MARKETS, and any delay in the reform process WILL REFLECT NEGATIVELY ON THE CREDIBILITY OF IRAQ IN FRONT OF THE INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS "

[Update: on Amnesty Law]

Many of you  readers have asked if I could explain in more detail just why the Amnesty law is so important in terms of holding up the revaluation process. So I will now address this concern.

As with most issues it is hard to separate them so I also must address a couple other issue interconnected with Amnesty.

The Amnesty law was rolled up under the reforms when Abadi took control of the government in 2014. It is one of the remaining controversial 6 reform laws.  

In the early years of USA occupation of Iraq, Nori al- Mailiki convinced the USA that many of his political rivals  were terrorists (some were legitimate terrorists) and so the US Army rounded them up and arrested them. They remain locked up today without a trial or due process according to Iraqi law.  G.W. Bush supported his first term as prime minister and later realized he has been lied to about these political prisoners.

So in retribution, G.W. Bush mandated that these prisoners be released as part of a forgiveness/ release provisions. These are now placed in a new law they now call the Amnesty law. He also mandated the full implementation of this law prior to any currency reform completion. Iraq has consistently attempted to push a “watered” down version of this law just to satisfy the USA, however the USA demands a full Amnesty according to specific conditions.

Can you now see why Maliki has not moved ahead to implement this law during his 8 years as prime minister? Can you see also why the USA is standing firm on this issue? Do you really think the USA will support any RV with the full implementation of this law and all of its conditions?  Folks- this is all common sense when you know the truth about why this law was mandated in the first place.  

[Update:  on Maliki]

Okay so this long standing issue with Maliki is interconnected with the Amnesty. Seems you can’t do one without  the other ( I mean getting rid of Maliki and getting Amnesty implemented). We have been reading articles now for over a month on the demise of the former prime minister ori al-Maliki and his corruption and crimes against humanity.

In many of my past news letters I stated (and very firmly stated) that I know that the USA wants to use this would- be- dictator as an example to any future would-be dictators (pointing to Assad in Syria and Iran). Maliki and his corruptive goons would have to be neutralized, if not gone from Iraq, for any RV to happen. So we learned last May this too is mandated or no RV.

So yesterday out pops this article (finally). Below I have included the article. They are going to use him as a lesson for all politicians", noting that "al-Maliki is the first. They must clean up their government. This is almost so predictable now. We just have to wait to see it all play out. The nice part about it all is we are seeing it being played out now so we know some completion and end is in site.

FEDERAL COURT ISSUED A DECISION TO ARREST AL-MALIKI     

Under the auspices of Iraqi lawyers .. Federal Court issued a decision to arrest al-Maliki
Date: Mon 08/10/2015 12:49

A number of Iraqi lawyers Federal Court demanded to issue a decision arrest warrant against former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki in preparation for submission to trial on charges of corruption and waste of public money and causing the death of thousands of Aeraguibn.

The lawyer said Ahmed Kazem that "a group of Iraqi lawyers Anzmwa to campaign (# Hakmoh) launched by Iraqi youth to demand the trial of former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki and all the corrupt officials in Maliki's government. "

And that "all those who support this campaign, he has to invest its experience and potential to sustain in order to be a lesson for all politicians", noting that "al-Maliki is the first because it head Corruption will be attached to him for trial and retribution all who follow him and backed leaders and corrupt politicians.

He said Kazem that "lawyers in the process of preparing a list of the charges against al-Maliki and submit a draft official accusation of the Federal Court to issue a decision arrest against him and brought to trial."

Update: New Taxes, Customs & Tariffs Law]


I wanted to reinforce the stance that the new customs and tariff law IS STILL IN EFFECT however it is a new law and is being met with much resistance in some provinces as they try to find loopholes.  Simply put it is too expensive of a burden on the Iraqi economy without some form of currency reform and a significant increase in the value of their currency.

So even this kind of revenue generating idea is not going to work to assist Iraq get out of the economic crisis without an RV. 

Currently I have heard they are not “officially” putting the tariffs on hold but are also not fully enforcing them either in many of the provinces. 

[Update: Decentralization Effort]


In my last news letters I told you this effort was scheduled for completion on Aug 5th, many days ago. We read many articles Abadi was not going to back off on this effort. We also read many articles about eight of the ministries that were behind in this effort and how the provinces were not the hold up and it was the GOI.

So just lately we heard many of the ministries are being terminated and the ministers fired. Could this be connected? Do you think Abadi is getting tired of this laziness and lack of diligence. Do you remember 8 months ago when he said all ministers would be expected to perform or else face being released.

The big question still is - Did they complete the effort?

We still wait to hear the outcome and can assume no news is good news? 

Let’s see how this plays out over the next couple days since we know they are attempting to meet this Aug 14th timeframe for all the reforms, decentralization being one of them. If they are late by a couple weeks we don’t care as long as its not 3 months….lol….

I am sorry if I am repeating some of this news but it is important at this time to truly understand it since I believe we are very close to completion of many issues holding back the RV.

Many say that triggering the RV is totally in the hands of Iraq. Really? That’s not what I am hearing.


In fact I am hearing just the opposite. Again there is a disconnect and a misinterpretation of what some are hearing. They have been at this intel stuff long enough and so they should be able to recognize the error especially when they know just how bad Iraq really wants and needs this RV. But they don’t and continue to still spread their nonsense on how Iraq is in complete control.

Of course the USA wants you all to believe this nonsense too since it gets them off the hook and you no longer consider them the holdup or the villain. But this is simply not reality and they are just trying to change your  perception so you won’t vent at your government (and maybe try to expose these early illegal exchanges).

I can assure you the USA is still in full control of determining when this RV will happen.


One more point to prove it – Why would Abadi implement the Tariffs if he knew he needed an increase in the value of his currency prior to it? If he was in control why would he not have pulled the trigger on the RV?
Did he try to pressure the USA into the RV or did they need additional revenue so badly they were willing to try the tariffs and wish for the best? You be the judge.

What I am hearing it is fully in Iraqi hands but only to complete the requested reforms and needed laws to support them. So this is what they mean by this statement. The ultimate decision still lays with the USA and always will.

Many of these reforms are also assisting in fully implementing the Iraqi constitution and so we are also hearing the USA wants a full implementation of their constitution (due process of the law) which means Justice and Court reforms. This is interconnected with the Amnesty implementation too. It all goes together.

A level of security too is needed and if they don’t fully want the help of the USA in fighting ISIS (like lots of boots on the ground), they must then create for themselves the needed level of security  needed to support their kind of economy. I am not talking about a random occasional killing. I am talking about a level of security where an entire provincial government is being freed from ISIS control.

Oh – wait a second !- So what do you think can prevent this from happening again in the future – Could it be the implementation of the NATIONAL GUARD law (one of the controversial laws remaining). It’s all interconnected folks. Don’t you get it by now? 

We have seen how easy it has been for a prime minister to steal funds from Iraq, also the other ministers too. This too must all be cleaned up. Abadi is completing this nasty task now with these inter-governmental reforms.

Reforms, reforms and more reforms. We see them in the banking sector, security sector, economic sector, area of reconciliation, inter-governmental and international trade (tariffs and customs), etc. Soon they will have to also complete the CURRENCY reforms we have long been waiting for very soon. It’s all coming to an end shortly.


Be patient and give them time. Abadi has built up enough incredible confidence enough that they can now rid themselves of Maliki and his goons. Once he is gone they can move very quickly to where they need to go.   

Peace and Luv To Ya All,
