MNT. GOAT UPDATE : “Moving Ahead – Juicy News” , 14 SEPT

UU6805 – “Moving Ahead – Juicy News” by Mnt Goat

Hello Everyone,

Today I come to you once again to see what sense we can all make out of this RV saga of the Iraqi dinar.

In many of my last news letters I talked about Abadi’s reforms on corruption and why the Iraqi dinar currency reform was being stalled. Today I want to talk about some ongoing programs and where they now stand on them. I will also elaborate why they are important for Iraq and tie this logic into the RV.

We all know that in order to have the post war  “provisional” currency changed over to the permanent currency (the lower denominations and project to delete the zeros) we will need stability in the country in all aspects. So today I will talk once on this subject and what is happening in the latest news on this subject.
Just remember Mnt Goat has said this many times that there will be NO RV until there is a high level of stability in Iraq.

Many have said all the laws were done and we are just waiting for timing for the RV. Really?  Just not so!

Many are getting information from high level telling of windows when this event COULD occur. I am not doubting some of this information because I too have the same info coming my way. What is different in my intel is that I am smart enough to see through this info because I know it is all a dependent on certain factors. They are just possible “what if” windows of POSSIBLE opportunity for an RV. So I have realized over years that this info is virtually worthless info and I ignore it. Why else would they leak it out to the general public, especially to some of these so called intel “gurus”.

Is there a laundry list or a honey do list? NO- it is just when Iraq GOI, USA and the IMF feel that Iraq is ready. The key really lies in the articles and they tell us so much.

Folks I have given you so much evidence in the past that my way of analyzing this situation is the correct way to go in finding the path to the RV. If you persist in your every day /  any day foolishness that is your problem but please do not come to me to save you when you are suckered in by these self proclaimed intel “gurus”.

There is nothing in the grey side or mysterious about why they are stalling the change over of the currency-

Remember I said (really Iraq said it) they had postponed the currency reforms due to three reasons:
1) money laundering and bad banking practices
2) wide spread corruption
3) security reasons

Nothing grey or mysterious about it …is there?

So Iraq must first  make the necessary changes. The reforms and the laws needed to back them up and implement them are needed first. This is very logical and should make total common sense to everyone. Why does it not?

Cause some screwy intel “guru” is playing with your mind and feeding into these every day / any day RV windows of opportunity, information that is simply no meant for the general public and we know why. Why?

Cause it is never going to be accurate but only one time. Yes – just one time. Someday it will RV and they will be 100% correct but this is not my point. The point is this – Why should all you fine dinarian investors have to suffer through this constant every weekend drama and anticipation only later to be let down.

It’s not all about the RV. The RV is simply a by-product of the process of bringing the country of Iraq online with the international community and do it such a way as to created stability and progress in their country and in the region.

Many don’t want to even talk about Mnt Goat any longer on their calls or forums since she too has gotten off this roller coaster and became real with her intel. Yes – no more hype and drama, just the facts. They don’t like her any longer since her type of info does not suite they roller coaster ride and drama. I even heard on one call weeks ago that the lower denomination have been distributed. Really?

Again I challenge these intel “gurus” to give me solid proof this is true. Give me solid proof that people are lined up at the bank to exchange. Exchange what? Over 80% of all the dinars have been already collected from the citizens as Iraq is almost completely now on the US dollar. So I would like to know just where are the citizens going to get all these so called dinars to exchange them? Certainly anyone still with larger amounts of dinar to exchange are not going to stand in a line at bank.

This is also why when the time come for the RV the new currency (the lower denoms) must valued higher than the US dollar since the citizens will want to exchange US Dollar for the lower denoms, essentially buying the lower denoms using the US dollar they now possess. Another reason they will want to buy the new lower denoms  is that it will have a much greater purchasing power, thus they can buy more when out shopping with it.

Today’s News

Today is Monday September 14th and still no RV. Well well yet another so called RV window has passed and still no RV. Wondering why? I JUST TOLD YOU WHY! (see above) . Please read it again.

So before I get to the real good news of this period I first need to (once again) clean up the mess left behind from these so called intel “gurus” over the weekend.

No – the recent blocking of the internet in Iraq has nothing and I mean nothing to do with the preparation for the RV. If you are one in thinking this you are a typical dinarian that I am trying to connect with and make some sense to you and help you. Everything is not about the RV. How about looking for the truth for a change before you go off on all your hype about the RV.

By blocking the internet Abadi has also blocked a strategic means of ISIS and DAASH communications. They are using the internet as their means to coordinate fire power and logistics. They use it too communicate the movement of their fighters. They can not afford the modern self- contained communication systems that a modern fighting force, such as the USA,  can afford to put in the hands of their unit commanders. So they are smart and use their cell phones to text , talk or send emails. By blocking this you cut off their means of communications and make it difficult for them to get resupplied, direct fire power and redeploy.

So what this blocking of the internet is really telling us is instead it confirms to us that the coalition forces are about to make a strategic move on ISIS positions in Anbar and Mosul.  They about to begin a surge. Do you know that the USA, Turkey, Germany and GB now have over 50,000 combat and yes I mean combat ready boots on the ground around this region. If you would bother to read the articles (which many of you are too lazy to do), you would know this fact and logic would tell you that blocking the internet could help this surge as I explained above. It is about to begin. Today was the day the said they might begin operations there.  In the USA you probably will not hear much about it but maybe a small snip it of news after the fact. The government of the USA is not going to boast about any “combat” troops on the ground in Iraq. You should all know by now why I am saying this.

Another rumor to I must also discount today is about the reports that conquerable by military forces by American or Iraqi, that stormed the CBI and confiscated documents going back to 2003.

The news media even all this to be inaccurate and they were cautioned by the government to lend credibility in the news.

So please put these rumors to rest now too. Here  is the article on the matter.

Article Begins:

CENTRAL BANK DENIES CONQUERABLE BY US TROOPS OR IRAQI

Baghdad-Iraq-Presse -12 September / September denied the Iraqi

Central Bank, on Saturday, it reports that conquerable by military forces was said to be
 American or Iraqi, while calling on the media to be accurate and caution and
 credibility in the news.

The bank said in a statement. , said that "some news sites and social  networking sites deliberated rumors targeting the central bank, including the issue of  conquerable by military forces," and denied the statement "the occurrence of any  storming of the bank", describing the news that talked about the storming of "rumors
 tendentious altogether." She spoke Arabic news reports and local, at dawn on Saturday, for US special forces to storm the headquarters of the Central Bank of Iraq in Rasheed Street in central Baghdad.

The reports said, that the "special  of the US military force stormed the central bank's headquarters and expressed reservations on a very large number of documents and documents.Ended

The really hot news of today is of course the surge about to begin on the provinces of Anbar and Mosul. I already talked about this effort and this probably already occurring now or about to occur as I write this new letter today.

Update: NATIONAL (Unified) CARDS
The next piece of juicy news is about the National Unified cards. We all know, as it has been confirmed, the Iraqi citizens currently have a Q- card (or SMART card) and use it daily to shop and purchase goods and services. The government, through the banking system, periodically loads these cards with money for the various programs. It is NOT yet fully international until the currency is turned on in the international exchanges.
In April of this year the told us they wanted to begin payout to the citizens of the oil revenues. They told us this would be done periodically starting in the June/July timeframe. They also told us it would be paid out on the new “National” card and not their current Q –Card of SMART card.

We know they plan to combine the two cards into one card usage since the National card would also act as a national identity card along with other goodies they can store with it. We know this was the source of many of the lines at the banks in the past, as they set a cutoff date to receive these new cards in the process of rolling them out.

Well I have to tell you there were still hundreds of thousands of citizens who did not receive there cards and so they extended the deadline. So know once again the news is hot about these new National cards. Why else?

They are preparing to pay out on HCL oil revenues. Yes – once again this is their intention.

They MUST distribute part of this oil revenue to the people as in the HCL law. The HCL is not complete without these ongoing rolling payments to the citizens.

This must be done prior to any RV. Get it !

I have said this many, many times to you already. This is why these cards are so important. So why would we not want to include this is our intel gathering and tell you about them? The answer is I do want to tell you about them and I am glad we are seeing a resurgence of this news again. This means they are getting serious about it once again.

Here is the significance to the RV-

When they begin using these new National cards they want the ability to make these payments to be an international usage. Why?
Here is the significance to the RV-

When they begin using these new National cards they want the ability to make these payments to be an international usage. Why?

This is the million dollar question and I almost want to challenge some of these so called intel “gurus” to us all why, being that they are sooo smart in their intel. But I will not rely on them meeting this challenge since they will only some back with some rhetoric or other intel for us. So I am going to tell you myself.
It is because of the huge refugee influx into Austria and Germany from Iraq and Syria. These refugees are Iraqi citizens and will need this money to live in their new country. These countries to not want to include them on their social programs and have had many discussions already with Iraq on this subject. They agreed to take them in but only conditionally. They are screening them carefully. In the future these National cards will also act as a more true identity card for them too since many mass refugee efforts typically to do not travel with visa or passports. Do you remember these articles about Abadi having meetings with representatives from these countries?  Can you add two and two?

So the importance of getting these cards online and paying out money to these people has gone to a higher level than ever. Something we definitely want to pay attention to.

Update: Sovereign Bond Drive

In my recent news letter I mentioned the news about Iraq  returning to international bond markets for the first time since the end of the US occupation as volatile oil prices weigh heavily on the country’s finances.
The success of Baghdad’s first issuance, expected as early as last 9/7 week, is likely to hinge on whether the US Federal Reserve will raise short-term interest rates on Thursday 9/3.

Investors said Iraq’s plans to raise up to $6 billion via a number of bond issues will bear the brunt of a shift in sentiment away from emerging markets if the Fed raises rates, with both the World Bank and International Monetary Fund.

I also mentioned why they were having this bond drive and it was to cover the deficit for 2015 and they through the remainder of the year 2015. I did not say it was going to cover any cost of any RV or this was and intent of theirs so please do not put words in my mouth.

On this subject matter I also presented you with an article telling that as part of OPEC and GCC the Saudis were planning to cut production hoping to drive up the price of oil in order to assist Iraq in there economic crisis thus with higher oil prices more value to the Iraq Sovereign bonds and also more oil revenue being generated that we know the gauge is already set at $65 barrel for 205 budget.

So is it succeeding to expectations?

Let’s see what they are telling us now after a week of the bond drive.

I included many article on this topic since it too the hot news of the day. Seems they await to see the effects of the Saudi oil production reduction.

Article Begins:

IRAQ WAITS FOR A HIGH PRICE, WHICH APPEAL TO INVESTORS TO BUY ITS BONDS

Follow-up scales News - He warned a report by the Reuters news agency from the deterioration of the financial problems of Iraq in the long term, following the presentation of dollar-denominated sovereign bonds in the international bond market at high interest rates to cover the deficit in the budget because of the war against Daash.

Reuters said in its report, seen by / scales News / It seems that "Iraq is on its way to a successful return to the international bond market after an absence of nine years to collect billions of dollars at high interest rates may lead to a deterioration of the financial problems in the long run."

Organized Baghdad, "a promotion to investors last week for a series of dollar-denominated sovereign bond issues, which hopes through which you can measure up to six billion dollars."

Iraq has been under "financial pressure because of the war on the Islamic militants to organize the state and the tensions between the central government and the Kurdistan region in addition to the drop in oil prices."

When allocated, "Standard & Poor's rating (B-) credit for Iraq this month, no fewer than six degrees of classification investment institution said that the risks related to security and institutions in Iraq among the highest level between all the countries that institution shall be classified and on a par with Egypt and never Both Greece.

It maximizes internal risk the instability of the global market environment and the trend is expected to begin to raise US interest rates may be starting this month.

And approached a return swaps in exchange for the commitment of Iraq to ensure the five-year used in the insurance of sovereign debt defaults from its highest level in almost six years if the risk rose 77 basis points to 576 basis points.

However, reducing the risk of potential oil industry unit in Iraq's second-largest oil producer in OPEC.

Iraq has raised crude oil production to 3.8 million barrels a day in June from 3.05 million barrels per day a year earlier.

Baghdad has said it aimed to raise its production capacity to total between 8.5 million and nine million barrels a day by 2020.

Among the factors that work to slow down the increase in oil production, bureaucratic hurdles and security concerns and inadequate pipes and storage capacity lines.

But most of the southern fields where production has survived acts of violence Iraq is expected to be able to pay its debts with satisfaction if achieved at least a part of its oil plans.

Said Ram Mohan, director at Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, which holds the review of the bond issue prospectus before deciding on the decision to invest in this version, "Iraq now has foreign exchange reserves approaching $ 65 billion and certainly contribute to higher production in increased even further."

So fund managers say that Iraq will not find buyers for its bonds only if you pay very high returns.

Baghdad has not announced the size of the first issuance or for the entitlement But bankers expect to be in the range of two billion dollars and have him from five to seven years.

The yield on the Iraqi jumped dollar bonds maturing in 2028 to all-time highs of up to 10.80 percent last week from 8.3 percent at the end of 2014 partly due to expectations of an increase of supply in the market.

He said Raza Agha sovereign bonds of emerging markets analyst at VTB Capital "in light of the Iraqi bonds that mature in 2028 exchange rates and the level of the standard price would have to be a coupon for a new version of Iraq for a decade 10.75 percent, consistent with the bond existing" In the market.

He added that the version in the pricing of those limits mean that Iraq will become the highest return bond issues between the oil-exporting countries in the Middle East and Africa.

Iraq and systems to promote meetings for investors in London on Thursday and Friday is due to this activity moves to New York, Boston and Los Angeles this week.

Focus on the Western financial centers and indicates that Iraq might be targeting large part sale of bonds to hedge funds and professional investors willing to accept the level of risk is high not to Gulf banks, which tend to buy high-yield bonds issued by the region.

Xuan said Taha Ibrahim, the founder of Spring Securities Company in Baghdad, said the bond issue came at the wrong time due to low oil prices and increased spending on Baghdad battles in the war on the organization of the Islamic state.

"It's the first you turn a huge surplus into a huge deficit. But the impact of that on the spot is a trend to very conservative fiscal policy is not to borrow money."

But if the release is part of a coordinated program to strengthen the financial position of Baghdad may be investors reacted positively. According to the prospectus that it might as well be as stating that Iraq will use a range of options such as domestic bonds and loans in addition to the Special Drawing Rights of the International Monetary Fund.

In early June, the IMF agreed to lend Iraq $ 833 million is expected that the World Bank is providing $ 1.7 billion for Baghdad.

Taha said the positive is the first time that people are thinking about all that and thinking about what happened and how to correct economic path.
Some fund managers believe that the bonds issued by Iraq priced in a manner attractive pricing compared to Egypt bonds that mature in 2020 and classified as a higher degree of one of Iraq as that Egypt faces major political and security problems.

And those bonds are trading at a price of 4.68 percent, ".anthy 29 / d 25

TNT CC NOTES, 14 SEPT

TNT Call notes 14-September-2015
Tony:  Good morning, TNT!  Today is Monday, September 14, 2015.  Glad to see high volume numbers this morning – let’s get this party started. What everyone came here to hear (apart from the 800 numbers) – some great news. This week is truly our week, sometime this week. I do have  two days this week that I think will be significant, and two times this week.  I’ll tell you just what I told the team this morning.
Over the years, I have learned that I’m the first person they blame when it doesn’t happen – “Tony said X” so we’re not going to do it then.  It doesn’t make sense to me, but there it is. They are making changes at the bank that will change how we do business.  They have tweaked it, and now they are ready t o go.  It’s a great month and a great week for that to happen.  Over the weekend, Abadi said the reforms are going on, an they will be retroactive to 1st September – that, like it or not, these reforms are happening. Something is happening in the course of this week. The weeks I gave you a week or so back, this week is one of them, and the end of the month is the other. Hopefully the misery will end and the party will begin.
All news is good. The rates have gone up a little bit since the last time I mentioned them. In Iraq on Friday, the rate for US citizens was 800:1.  Our contact says they are excited about something over there.  Over the weekend, they said that US troops stormed the CBI and there is a controversy over that.  A Saudi article says that the US stormed the CBI. However, this is all happening the way it was planned;  this is about protecting the CBI, not taking it over.  It’s about an audit and making sure they stay in control.  If this was you, when would you want the audit to be?  A year in advance, or a few days before the release?  This is what we have been waiting for, and it had to happen as part of the process. It’s happened twice before, so that is good news, not bad news.
We’re in a good spot, with things planned for this week.  The information has got to such a low level, that nearly everyone is prepared:  moving people and money this week. They can still do it any time in the next 17 days, but they do have a lock-in date or couple of dates that will affect us one way or the other.
903 caller:  [can’t understand this caller]
Tony:  You and me both!  I am ready for this!  There is a good possibility for this week. 
Caller:  I’ve been ready for this since 2010. 
Tony:  Just because I didn’t do a call, doesn’t mean I was on vacation – I was doing calls every day, just like yesterday!
617 caller:  You’ve answered my questions and I’m excited about what you said!  Vegas, Vegas, Vegas!  Have a wonderful day!
860 caller:  I was concerned about the news about the CBI, but you’ve answered that.  How is Pam’s friend doing?  We will continue to have him in his prayers… Great news, and let’s get to Vegas, Vegas, Vegas! 
Tony:  He passed away, but everyone appreciates your prayers.
301 caller:  Thanks for the great news!  Vegas, Vegas, Vegas!  Can you say anything additional about the impending changes at the bank?
Tony: They are going to make some special new, updated privileges just for you.  It’s all good!  If it were anything negative, I would say so, but everything is good.
Caller:  Have a blessed day!
Tony:  There’s something there and it’s for you, but we don’t’ know how widespread it is, so I don’t want to compromise anything by telling you specifically what it is.  I don’t want to get anyone in trouble, because I don’t know how many have trained for it.  But it is a good thing.
303 caller:  Today I want to do a little devil’s advocate, with respect.  I read reports from some of your colleagues.  One always quotes articles that support  her sense that we are still some way away from our RV, that Iraq simply isn’t ready.  I contrast her reports with  hers;  you talk to people whose observations you value and respect. I understand you cannot tell us who they are, but maybe you can tell us something about their position, like if they are Senators, in Abadi’s cabinet, or at an agency.  Can you give us any clarification that might give a boost in credibility to your observations? I would really appreciate that.
Tony:  The articles say what they want the public to believe, so if someone’s getting their information from that, they are believing what they want people to believe, and that’s okay. For me to give information is one thing, but to do what you are asking – be specific about people’s position – puts those people and their families in danger to satisfy your curiosity, which I’m not willing to do.  The people we talk to are in all the positions you mentioned – people in Parliament, in the meetings, sending and receiving the memos and all the rest. I know who they are and what offices they work in, where documents have come froml, and what they put on the line in making this information available to me.  You have to decide if it makes sense or not. Either Tony makes this stuff up, or Tony is giving you good information and these other people don’t .   We get information from government, intelligence and military sources, plus shopkeepers, and people on the streets. There is information from too many sources for it to shut off!  I don’t want them changing much information to do with us.  There are people in this world who think tony controls the RV, and because Tony says “it’s at this time or this way, we’re not going to do that.”  Seriously!  I’ve always been 2-3 days before the information in the newspapers or articles.  This guru or that one says “The RV won’t come for another 12-18 months” and I see where they are getting that from, because it’s saying it on CNN, but that is what they want you to be thinking.  They don’t want everyone to know everything.
I don’t get mad at people saying those things, because they are using the information they have.  You have decide who makes sense and who to listen to.  You can think what you want – 2015, 2016, 2017, ISIL has to be wiped off the map for this to happen – that’s never going to happen!  That doesn’t make sense;  they will be there forever and a day. They will always be plotting.  We will never have a perfect Iraqi government.  If you are reading articles, read the ones that say Abadi has to do something because they are rioting in the streets.  They are raising hell, they are getting tired of hearing it and not seeing it, and they are dangerously close to this thing boiling over and being out of control. It would take them ten years to get back to this point, and no one wants that.
Caller:  I have always said you walk on water;  I just don’t want to look down and sink.  Thanks for that eloquent explanation.  Vegas, Vegas, Vegas! 
Jerry on Skype:  About wealth managers, is it possible to have multiple accounts at the same bank?  I have four accounts at the same bank.
Tony:  Yes. I have multiple accounts at my bank.
Caller:  I thought so, and I have a savings, checking and IRA at the same bank, but I just wanted to make sure. I am setting out everything the way you told me, all ready beforehand so I’m not running around like an idiot when this happens.  So I’m setting up various accounts, setting aside the right percentage for taxes, etc.  If no one is paying attention, I certainly believe in what you are saying.  It can’t be a matter of waving a magic wand, so we get impatient, and I am reminded I have to wait.  I won’t join you in Vegas, but I will say Vegas, Vegas, Vegas!  for those who  want to go.  I’m waiting like everyone else.
636 caller:  I  trust you, Tony;  I admire you and put great stock in what you say!  I’ve thought all along that the stock market crash would be stabilized by the RV.  It seems like all these things you are telling us – that seems what we are coming to.  Can you add any more to that?
Tony:  No, that is what we are coming to.  They are preparing today for countries that are changing their currencies.  They are making the announcements slowly, as little as they can, partly so that the numbers come out right and also so it won’t be such a shock to the system.  Little things are being made public in the countries and the economy.  They may look like little blips, and we see where it fits in our puzzle, so those are things we are happy to hear about. 
Caller:  I wouldn’t have a clue if it weren’t for you.  I felt some of these other gurus were bogus, so it boils down to you.  Do you have any opinion about changing interest rates and the effect on the economy.
Tony: The market and those wanting to buy the bonds are concerned.  Other countries want this RV to happen because of the dollar, and others want it before buying the bonds because the rates will change.  They are waiting to see what happens here, first.  I know many want the dollar to be strong, but really that is not what we want, because the stronger the dollar, the lower the exchange rates.  Most of the world operates better when the dollar is weaker.
Caller:  I am sending DC a short email, so tell him to look, okay?  Vegas, Vegas, Vegas! 
Tony:  Good luck with that.  He doesn’t read OUR emails, because we talk on the phone.
865 caller:  This is 404, actually.  With all the changes, etc., have you and your team received any final information packets?  Should we expect 800 numbers?  Do you know?
Tony: As far as I know, it is. We haven’t been told any differently from our side.  Other sources have said that may not happen, because that would be too simple.  If it doesn’t go that way, if they didn’t need me to sign an NDA, then I can tell you anything I want, and I know a whole lot. One way or another, I will be here to help you – either telling you what they want you to know, or, if they cut us out, telling you what we know from our other sources.  We have information coming from so many banks and countries and global traders and other sources, that we will know the moment happens.
Caller:  Anything else on taxes?
Tony:  I heard there was an agreement and a magic number.  However, it is subject to change, so if you plan on 50%, you cannot lose.  If you plan on spending $50 and it turns out to be $20, you cannot lose.  Where are you?!
Caller:  I’m in the east Tennessee mountains… [Appreciation]  Vegas, Vegas, Vegas! 
432 caller:  What do you think about the refugees?
Tony: Which ones?  I am not going to talk about politics, only about dinar.  I’m all for helping people, especially here in the USA.  I don’t understand people walking past the ones we see starving in the street, and I hope we’ll do something about them.
Okie called me yesterday, and he is still breathing.  He was sick, but he’s okay now.  He has good news from his guys. 
512 caller:  Which window of opportunity is greater?  This week, or the 30th?
Tony:  The opportunity is between the 15th and the 30th, with greater enhancement this week. That is not a promise, but an enhancement.
Caller:  We all appreciate what you’re doing!  Texas, Texas, Texas!
773 caller:  How was that vacation you almost had?
Tony:  Pam said she wishes someone had told us there was a vacation because we would have enjoyed it!
Caller:  You said about the articles being put out to lead us to believe what they want us to believe.  Articles are all I have, I don’t have any contacts overseas. I read one yester-day that said there were small business loans being offered in six provincies in Iraq.  Is there any truth to that?  Where is the money coming from?
Tony:  They have changed the rates in the provinces, paid contractors, and updates the cards there. Where is that coming from?  They were broke, so how are they paying people?  How can they take 100 billion in worthless dinar and build schools, etc. They must have changed the rates to something close to the new rate.  I look, listen, and say “does this make sense?  What part makes sense?  What would be required for this to make sense?”  I listen to my sources and see where those pieces fit in.  We heard a lot of garbage over the weekend, but there is always a little part that is true so they can say “this is a good article”.  You need to understand that the articles come out AFTER it has happened and it’s verifiable, at least in part.  Most people don’t want to analyze it that much, they just read it on a surface level. The country is trying to influence its people.  Iraq is definitely doing that as they go in a certain direction as fast as possible, because millions of their people are in the streets demanding immediate change.  They have a fight on their hands to get some of it accomplished, but parts might take up to two years.   This is forcing them to make announcements faster than they want to, to keep people calm. They have been doing that for nine months.  They are now close to breaking point, so someone will have to sacrifice themselves OR they will have to give them something so good it will distract them thoroughly.  Guess what that would be?  So there may well be some truth in that article, but…
Caller:  I try to break it down and decipher what is true, but I don’t know and I don’t have any sources to ask.  My group and I, we are speculating together.
Tony:  Democrats believe what they believe, and CNN says right, while Fox disagrees, and says what the Republicans are saying is the truth.  They have parties in Iraq and they contradict each other.  I am your outside source, and the other gurus, and you have to wait a few weeks to see how it shakes out.  I tell you thinks as they are happening. Thursday night it was supposed to go, again, and it didn’t.  I got the best news ever on Saturday morning:  dates and times.  I have to go with that, but it could change.  All I can do is give you the news up to the date, up to the minute.  People are saying 2016, 2017, but the country doesn’t have that amount of time.  That timing has to do with the protections that they are putting into place.  I’m looking at it the way a lot of people look at it who are involved in the process.  Only you can decide if my information makes sense. 
Caller:  [Appreciation]  Vegas, Vegas, Vegas! 
Tony: They get information straight out of the meeting, they call me.  I know things other gurus do not get.  I verify and find out what is truth. Everyone doesn’t agree;  you have to decide.  People talk to different people.  One of my intel people said over the weekend that the government people got paid;  one of my CBI people said nobody got paid.  There are different levels of information.  The ordinary people have not been paid.  We heard yesterday that they intend to make all the international card the same rate.  There must be a reason. They were planning to pay everyone on the 7th;  they reduced salaries, and they said the rate changes and payments will be retroactive to the 1st of the month. There are reasons for all these decisions and for the delays, too.  I don’t get to push the button or it would have been done long ago. I’m not God;  I can only give you the information as we get it, tell you what makes sense, and go on from there.
Pam:  It really is about the journey and not the destination.  If we already had the RV, we would have less money.  Thanks for Daz and others in the chat room who educate us. Thanks to all those who are educating others as we hope to educate you.  Nonmembers, go to the Tony Blast Section for all the things we can help you learn.  One of the things we’ve learned is that we don’t’ like some people as much as we thought and we’d like to lie on the beach somewhere.
Ray:  Marvelous Monday!  Check your checklist so you can be ready when the day comes.
Tony;  We are so close right now, so the only last-minute advice I can give is BE READY while you are calm, with no pressure on you.  Know your first Ten Things to do, what you want to do in the first week, first month.  Interview people while they are interviewing you, so you can lay out your plan.   Stay focused. The rates are higher, but whatever the rate, put your dollars to work before your spend anything.  You have to have a PLAN in order to reach your goals.  “Those who fail to plan, plan to fail.”  We are still be here to do what they want us to do, but we don’t know whether we will have a 15-minute call, or a daily call for seven days or whatever.  We will be here to get you started.  Look for this week;  if it doesn’t happen this week, look for the end of this month.  The world is sensitive now, to the effect NOT doing this will have on Iraq and the world.  It’s coming to the point where that will be worse than this happening.  Enjoy the rest of your day, and if anything super happens, we will tweet it out and do this again.  Otherwise we will do this again on Wednesday, but I really hope not.  Thanks!

BGG CHAT UPDATE, 14 SEPT

BGG: for starters – I posted a bunch of that info from Fri/Sat about the storming of the CBI…
BGG: and the associated article with Chalibi quoted as naming suspects in theft of CBI monies.
BGG: it would be easy enough to “claim it didn’t happen” – but the list of those being named as “bad actors”….
BGG: that presents those characters with a much different problem.
BGG: not that I am sure of anything… just pointing out the chronology of events.
BGG: which makes things look very curious. IMHO
BGG: Ok here is an interesting piece…
BGG: I raise this as valuable info for this reason – the more of this info that is revealed publicly 1) we gain some greater understanding of what is actually going on 2) there appears to be a legitimate push to change things in Iraq (in our favor)…
BGG: Iran behind assassinations and abductions in Iraq
BGG: For the past six weeks the people of Baghdad and other Iraqi cities have taken part in mass demonstrations demanding an end to government corruption and the trial and punishment of former Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, the European Iraqi Freedom Association (EIFA) said in a statement on Saturday.
BGG: They have demanded a complete reform of the corrupt Iraqi judicial system, which was set up by Maliki and politically controlled, it said.
BGG: “The protesters in particular demand the removal from office of the head of the Supreme Judicial Council – Medhat Mahmoud, who for the past 8 years proved to be a willing tool of Maliki and his puppet-masters from the Iranian regime.”
BGG: “It has now emerged, according to Iraqi media, that Hadi Ameri and Abu Mehdi Mohandess, two of the most coldblooded leaders from Iran’s revolutionary guards and commanders of the militias affiliated with the terrorist Quds Force (QF), went to see Medhat Mahmoud to reassure him of their support and to let him know that the militias, the QF, and the Iranian regime are opposed to his resignation. This represents a blatant confrontation with the demonstrators and their legitimate demands to defeat the aspirations of the Iraqi people for justice and change.”
BGG: “This latest outrage comes against a background that has seen the assassination of at least four organizers of the protests and the abduction of Turkish workers by the militias associated with the Iranian regime.”
BGG: Indeed one of the leading protesters stated: “The loudest message from the Shi’ite militias that resorted to these assassinations is that we should keep quiet regarding the religious parties supporting Iran…They allege that we are against religion, but we have not insulted any religion.
We are just demanding a civilian government. We are an Islamic nation and we want a civilian and technocratic government.”
BGG: The European Iraqi Freedom Association (EIFA) expressed its “abhorrence” and condemned the “terrorist and criminal measures and the pressures that have been used against the demonstrators.”
BGG: It called on Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to protect the demonstrators with all means at his disposal and to pave the way for real reforms by arresting Maliki and his cohorts and bringing them to justice. “Otherwise, the Iranian regime and its elements in Iraq will undermine and defeat his reforms.”
BGG: HOLY MOLY – WOW…
BGG: Not being “overly sensational” – this is pretty enlightening / and WOW on the Maliki part…
BGG: their words…
Pablo: Them’s fighting words.
BGG: “…called on Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to protect the demonstrators with all means at his disposal and to pave the way for real reforms by arresting Maliki and his cohorts and bringing them to justice…”
BGG: that is pretty plain…
jackflash101st: HUGE
cjquade54: love this: and to pave the way for real reforms by arresting Maliki and his cohorts
BGG cjquade54: I have been saying just this ALL ALONG…
cjquade54: yes you have
BGG: another highly pivotal bit issue… “…demand the removal from office of the head of the Supreme Judicial Council – Medhat Mahmoud, who for the past 8 years proved to be a willing tool of Maliki and his puppet-masters from the Iranian regime…”
BGG: Medhat is a tool alright…
BGG: also – enlightening AND cause for optimism (here and now – maybe not – but it is legit movement the right direction). Oct 1st is the WB / IMF deadline for the AML Law – which POINTS DIRECTLY AT THESE BAD ACTORS. Right at’em!!
larrykn: I don’t understand why its taking them so long to remove all these people it seem they have the goods on them now or is that why they went into the cbi to get more on them
BGG larrykn: I suspect this to be the case. They needed more – AND there are a lot of them.
BGG larrykn: once this gets started – they will be able to get their hands on more of them AND their ill-gotten gains, which is important to Abadi. He has said so — plus he’s not very happy with the Integrity Committee for not coming up with more seizures.
dstratton04: the next few weeks will be telling
BGG dstratton04: very much so…
cjquade54: do you think Iran will back off immediately with the arrest of Maliki? or will all hell break loose?
BGG cjquade54: not sure – but those supporting such monkey business will slow down (for sure) – Hadi Ameri (for example) – in fact, he was in that high level Shia meeting Maliki was absent from, just the other day. I am going to study that article further this evening.
jackflash101st: What do you think the chances are of them redoing the parliament and getting rid of these brain dead mongaloids?
BGG jackflash101st: I don’t think they go that far / or have to – IMHO…
BGG jackflash101st: but again – that is just my take… who knows??
dale: Do you think Abadi will remove some current members of the integrity commission with new members?
BGG dale: that I Do think will happen. He’s not happy and they have proven they are FOR SALE. They can be bought.
dale: Thanks …. sure sounds like it.
dstratton04: do you think aml and national guard will be back in parliament this week?
BGG dstratton04: AML – probably – NGL – not so sure, Maliki’s bunch get everyone all stirred up blaming every little thing on US or Saudi intervention. He knows how to push their buttons – until now, they have let him… however, having said as much… the biggest majority of the Shia leadership are about done with him AND his antics.
BGG: they are blaming the National Guard Law on the US and the Saudis (or some other “shadowy” arabic boogeyman) in hopes they can keep control of their own personal Shia militia… that is the bottom line – right there. It’s about control.
BGG: the problem is these same militia are out doing Iranian dirty work and mucking up the political scene with some pretty ugly moves.
BGG: Like I have been saying – the more of this that gets out in the public eye – the more they can deal with it. Looks like (from that article on THE BLOG) – they are aware and insisting it get handled (by Abadi).
larrykn: I thought maliki had left and hasn’t returned
BGG: not sure – haven’t heard much from him.
larrykn: I’m praying he decided to leave that would help
BGG: AND – in his mind, he can keep up his influence from wherever he is…
larrykn: all the way to the hangman noose
BGG: as long as he isn’t arrested – which BTW, is not a long stretch, at this point.
jackflash101st: Exactly BGG great point
BGG: IMHO – those commenting that Maliki is “too big to be arrested” are going to be WRONG AGAIN.
dstratton04: do you think the lower denominations have been printed and are ready to go?
BGG dstratton04: I do.
dstratton04: TY. me too
BGG: before we finish up – lemme’ point out a few headlines that will start drawing some idea up as to what is going on today.
BGG: (meaning this particular time-frame)…
BGG: Nouri show surprise at the insistence of the US and British ambassadors to pass the National Guard Law
BGG: Nouri is out of the PMU, SLC, Dawa ilk…
BGG: (not Nouri al-Maliki)

BGG: but he’s “boo hooing” about the US and Brits wanting the NG Law – (which balances power). These ding-a-lings can’t seem to get it through their heads – NO ONE in the world likes to let a people group go unrepresented. DUMMIES. This will happen.
BGG: Parliament completes a second reading of the draft arms law
BGG: Araji calls for cooperation to achieve, rather than question the fact that its presence reforms
BGG: Oh wowser – here is a biggie…
BGG: Washington save Jubouri of dismissal and expose the leaders of the Dawa party against the backdrop of the Doha Conference
BGG: Iraqi source familiar with the detection of the US Embassy in Baghdad leaking the names and photographs of the leaders of the Dawa Party Tarek Najm, former director of the Office of the Nuri al-Maliki and Sadiq al-Rikabi, who served as ambassador of Iraq to the State of Qatar during a secret visit to Qatar, the costs of prime minister Haider al-Abadi.
It was a coalition of state law collection Signatures for the removal of Iraqi parliament speaker Salim al-Jubouri, against the backdrop coincided his visit with the Iraqi opposition conference hosted by Qatar last week..
BGG: Looks like the SLC collecting signatures to oust Jubouri is a dead issue now…
BGG: it appears some key SLC players were there as well.
BGG: making it a “not-so-Arab” plot… more of a normal meeting… about stopping the madness.
BGG: and then there’s this…
BGG: Dawa Party leaders deny involvement in the party and the Doha conference say they went for recreation!
cjquade54: lol
BGG: they just happened to be in Doha working on their tan… during these crucial meetings.
BGG: On a final note – it appears the CBI sales are retreating and the Dinar is remaining stable (if not starting to strengthen)…
BGG: this means less corruption – more confidence.
BGG: it will work.
BGG: OK gang – thanks for tuning it…
BGG: I am plenty excited to see what Abadi’s reforms bring and how quickly it all comes together – because, quite honestly – that IS THE WHOLE BALL – GAME right now.
BGG: working on News and THE BLOG (you may want to check it later)…

TNT CHAT UPDATE, 14 SEPT

TNT:

Iko Ward:
   Well guys, we did break the 1105 barrier briefly, 1104.7. Back 1115 now but it was fun while it lasted. ISX down again to 816 so it's lost a full 11% from earlier this year. Back from where we started when it took off a full 10% in one day. Markets are set to have a rough week according to some. The smart money seems to be on later this week for an RV because of all the deadlines. Let's see what Tony has to say.

EF:
  Dow futures turn negative as Street braces for Fed. "Fasten your seatbelts, as it could be another volatile week ahead of us."

SB11:
  Forex is posting a LOT more often I see this as really positive a​nd no one has said it yet . http://www.forex.tradingcharts.com/chart/US%20Dollar_Iraqi%20Dinar.htm​l :)

Iko Ward:  sb11, Forex is polling twice as often, especially since the 7th. What is even more promising is the value continues to creep down. A new low each day. What we really want ti see is for them to break the 1100 barrier and ideally get down to 1185.That is a key trigger.

Sb11:  iko - I am seeing that there has been 11 postings on the chart with the forex link today, as other days have only posted 2 or 3. I studied a lot of charts in the past, It means more trading doesn't it on forex as well?

Iko Ward:
  Well, it means more polling. Whose platform are you using?

Sb11:  fair enough, I like it though. Thanks for responding iko. When before 705am EST forex polls 11 times when compared to 2 or 3 times over most 24 hour periods, I like it and love how we are all tracking this stuff. Coffee's a great idea.

Iko Ward:
  sb...next one I look for is around 10AM. Lately, that's when they revert back to 1165. A change there would also be telling.

Roush:  China-Russia Oct. expo aimed at unlocking billions of dollars in trade
September 13, 2015, 5:51 am


A Chinese province is set to host a China-Russia expo next month, intended to boost trade, finance and tourism between the two neighbours.

 Chinese officials said representatives of over 50 Russian companies will arrive in northeast China’s Heilongjiang Province next month for the trade fair where deals worth billions of dollars is expected to be inked. Heilongjiang accounts for about a quarter of China’s total trade with Russia.

Top Chinese and Russian officials and industrialists will gather at Harbin to discuss investment cooperation from October 12-16.

This is the 2nd China-Russia Exposition. Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin launched the first expo with his Chinese counterpart Wang Yang last year.

Contracts worth $3.15 billion were signed at the first China-Russia Expo.

This year’s theme is “Silk Road Economic Zone: New Opportunities for Cooperation”, with an exhibition area of 86,000 square meters.

The trade fair has become one of China’s major regional platforms to promote President Xi Jinping’s “Belt and Road” initiative.

Under its so-called “One Belt, One Road” initiative, China aims to create a modern trade route known as the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road.

Projects under the plan include a network of railways, highways, oil and gas pipelines, power grids, Internet networks, maritime and other infrastructure links across central, west and south Asia to as far as Greece, Russia and Oman, increasing China’s connections to Europe and Africa.

China’s President Xi Jinping said in March that he hoped China’s annual trade with the countries involved in the “One Belt, One Road” initiative would surpass $2.5 trillion in a decade.

Meanwhile, the expo organisers said on Saturday in Harbin that Russian firms with interests in various sectors like agriculture, chemicals, aviation and aerospace, banking and finance, and heavy industry and metallurgy, are attending the event.

“The results of cooperation between China and Russia, especially in equipment manufacturing, science, technology and finance, will be featured during the event,” said E Zhongqi, the Chinese secretary general of the organizing committee of the 2nd China-Russia Expo.

The expo will also attract businessmen from other countries, including Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, the Republic of Korea, India and Singapore.

The week-long expo in the Chinese province is jointly held by China’s Ministry of Commerce and the Russian ministries of economic development and industry and trade.

Northeast China’s Heilongjiang Province is planning to increase investment in Russia by $1 billion by the end of 2015, and $2 billion by 2020.

The Chinese province, which borders Russia, plans to boost its trade volume to $26 billion by 2015, and $52 billion by 2020
