TNT :TNT SHOWTIME Logout Menu To Summarize: from another site by 23skido, 25 JAN

Let me know if I'm getting this right: Platinum's integrity has been unquestionable, accurately reporting the completion of banks receipt of neccessary codes for exchange, Bruce is expecting to to do a celebration call on Tuesday night, Iko says Monday night is the final push, Martha says, "We'll be in the bank this week, MillionDay has outlined multiple articles, leaders, and activated laws that all imply we're on the cusp of a rate change, Poppy3 says we're 5 months away from Economic reform being completed implying the RV/GCR is at any moment, BGG has said that the rate change could be within 7-10 days, not sure what Mountain Goat is saying because I stop reading as soon as I see, "and still no RV."

 But, I'm sure he knows more and is smarter than everyone else because he writes with an arrogance that only comes from predicting events that have already occurred, KTFA/Frank 26 is also among the elite as he continually promotes his intel by passive agressively pointing out that, "his team is not like other teams." Dr. Clark AKA. Mountain Goat's alter ego is saying...well who cares what he is saying, because his intel is based largely on validating Mountain Goat which seems to be a creation of his need to feel appreciated, which is truly genious and in line with the superiority complex seen in the Goat's posts. 


All news seems to point to an eminent revaluation of world currencies, economic indicators seem to reveal a definitive need for such action, ships are reported to be moving out of Iran (which I believe is good) Iran's currency saw a 33% rise this past week, China's doing...stuff, that I think leads us to a GCR, Awake in 3D says 800 numbers won't be posted on websites, but will be available on conference calls, and Prime Minister Abadi made an announcement that may have implied Iraq is moving to an International/Marke/Global economy. Meanwhile, according to Rayren, (Bless his heart) banks seem to think we'll be exchanging "this week", for the past several weeks, and Dalred said, this past weekend was our last weekend (of waiting for the RV I'm assuming). 


Oil is above $32, Dow opened down, Shanghai closed up, Chinese are infusing Billions into the market,( which means something) various astrological, numerological, spiritual, and religous prophetic predictors are aligned to indicate massive changes, aliens are our ancestors and secretly controling the Earth, and United States government is an illegal incorporation/shadow government, that is being taken out of control by the real Republic of the United States which will free us all from the bondage of public slavery created by illusionary debt. In addition, massive humanitarian efforts are about to be launched world wide as soon as funds are released from the bonds, or the GCR, or the Elders, or the "Powers that Be." 


These claims are backed by declarations made by the UN to "abolish poverty" in the next 15 years, various actions by the Chinese government to forgive massive amounts of debt, and lengthy discussion by world leaders to create new peaceful environments. New technologies which have been held back until this time will soon be released for the good of all mankind, and everything we ever suspected about corrupt politicians has been drastically underestimated. This combination of events all leading us to a spiritual awakening of a new global reality where "good" people, or at least people with good intentions will be the new "One Percenters" with the awesome responsibility of reshaping the world into a Utopia of abundance rather than a fake depiction of lack and starvation. I believe it. All of it. It's just too redicilous to be contrived from the minds of mortal men. So I'm ready to do my part. Once my family is taken care of, I'll gladly pay it forward. I'll dedicate my life to the service, testimony, and manifestation of the highest good. And, I'll do it with all humility, knowing how little I really know. I just need to exchange first. 

TNT : TONY'S CLIFF NOTES, 25 JAN

    • sunny said
      10:25 AM Jan 25, 2016
    Highlights of TNT conference call.  Updated as the call progresses.
    Articles out the smart cards to be issued for the last place - Baghdad!
    Ray:  Many of us are surmising, when that takes place this is it! In addition to that info, I'm going to let this out. Item #4- Raf   (Rafidain) bank links smart cards internationally effective immediately!!!   (This info) Went to the bank yesterday. 
    Things happen in stages.  People got smart cards, then they had to be funded.  Things have to take place. 
    Ray:  Pam is on an errand and Winston has been sick over the weekend.  Just keep him in your thoughts and he should be better in the coming days . . . or coming hours.
    Intel just not out their . . .as far as new intel.  We are still in a good place.  On Friday talk about the Iraq Dinar listing on Forex rate matching other rates.  Then Forex closed.   Had to wait the weekend to find it wasn't. . . waiting for something that is probably true. . . . some information that other intel providers should be telling you.
    MEMO'S:  Ray:  One was in Iraq (to the exchangers) telling them to be ready to exchange by a certain date. It was date specific. I don't think anyone else is telling you that either.   Another memo went to US "and pretty much the same thing.  Approved for trade any time between now and certain dates. . . date specific.  I'm surprised that didn't come out Friday or over the weekend, because that was confirmed and visually seen. 
    CURRENT WINDOW:   Ray:  From expectation stand point - any time, any day, any minute . . . any hour.  Still getting this from banking people and other sources. Cannot put our finger on exact day/time.  (we are still in window from last Friday).  Any time between now and a certain date, could pop out any time.  Going to release smart cards - going to be International . . . there's a window we're working from.  Getting more pieces to the puzzle.  The clock is ticking.  Are you ready?
    IRAQ:    Gazette did come out last Thursday with budget in it.  Another section came out this weekend but still missing some key information.  Rate calculations are said to be in there but still not visible for the average person to read and decipher for conclusions.
    • CBI     
    • Banks: Rafidain Bank  -  Ray will call "Raf" bank as their is considerable discussion about how to pronounce.  Info is Raf bank will link their cards Internationally.  It was not clear if he met a credit card or smart card.  Ray: Waiting for the rate, for the cards to be funded and to see if they are fully International.  Always thought they would be done at the same time , but we are now seeing that the cards can be loaded and the revaluation happen later.  
    Ray:  It's all good information and added to items 1, 2 and 3, that’s pretty exciting because they are looking for the international currency to change by a specific time-frame.
     I’m still trying to nail information that came to me on Friday – and I didn’t even talk about it on Friday.  If it’s good info, we’ll get it out to you on a tweet or call, or if it’s already happened, you might not care about it by then.  Meanwhile, it’s appropriate that some others have the limelight. I have no interest in being the ‘first’ to call the RV.  I will give you what you need.  
    INTERNATIONAL:  
    • Final Say So Ray:  Don't have an opinion.  Too many puzzle pieces missing.  If you are talking about the Iraqi currency, then it’s Iraq, but there are a lot of other cookies in that cookie jar.
    • Iran / Iraq tied together meaning one currency will not revalue ahead of the other:  Ray does not know if that's true or factual or otherwise.

    • Rates:   Ray would not quote rates saying, "give them the benefit of the doubt they still don't want us to quote rates."  He said if he did not hear a confirmation of this before the next call he would quote them.
                             Caller: People must understand we do not control the RV. It is controlled by others.                                                                 You have done fine job of asking questions but think people just need to listen.                                     You pass information on to us.  That should be the end of it.
    UNITED STATES:  
    • UST:    
    • Banks:    
    Rumor:   Backwall is Feb 4th? Ray - not heard that.  But that's good.  It's close.     
    EXCHANGING:    Ray:  Still waiting for official information. . . If they give us 800 numbers, then we will give those out.  If not, you should find the number for foreign currencies and make your own appointment. They may not give it to us until the last minute or at all.  Be ready to call your bank yourself.
    Negotiating: Ray cautioned about having a firm attitude when you are talking to the banker.  His viewpoint was if you are very definite about what you want the bank may just give it to you and you will never learn what other options they may have to offer.  Ray:  I'm telling the bank, ‘this is my concern’ so they can tell me how to get it done.
    RAY’S CLOSING STATEMENT:
    Everything probably is in place, and they are tying up loose ends.   Where does that put us today?  “Any minute, any hour”, with the banks still sitting on notification of currencies to be exchanged between now and a certain date, so it could happen at any time. There is a window they are working from over here and in Iraq, with the RAF bank issuing international smart cards, effectively immediately.  We’ll see how that unfolds today, tomorrow, as we wait for that specific day when it’s time for us to go and take care of business.  
    All we can do is wait folks. Be patient. Progress of wheel is turning. Liking everything I’m hearing. Went into weekend feeling good. Going into first part of this week feeling better. Clock is ticking.
    Any day really means any day.  If there is a need for us to be here on Wednesday, we will be here.  Any day really means any day – we may not be here by tonight, tomorrow, any day this week.  Can’t put our finger on it, but rest assured that it is coming and the reality will be here.  
    Fear disables, faith empowers. Keep the faith.  I believe.  Do you?  

Wolfy’s Bank Story, 25 JAN

Wolfy’s Bank Story:   Walter asked me to post this--It a few days to weeks old but here goes..

Got called by my bank that the dong was fluctuating and they wanted me to know that.  Said they would call me back. I decided to get dressed and go on down to the bank. She (WM)was very busy and I had to wait in between her other customers.

Yes for some of you that think WM have nothing to do except help us all day--they do have a job to do with other customers.  Now, The dong was still showing "pending" but from time to time the screen would blink and the "pending" would go away.

It was then we would try to push thru and exchange. Let me tell you this because most of you probably havent gone thru this.  

It was the most stressful thing I have done lately--I am physically and mentally exhausted..

Several times the screen did not show "pending" but most of the time it did. It was rough for several hours. I am not supposed to quote the rate but I can tell you it was over a dollar,,even over more that that but I cant say any more that that and yes I did see the screen.

Once while I was waiting on the WM to work with someone else--one of the tellers came over and asked if she could help in some way. I told her no thanks because the WM had told me it wasnt showing on their screens and they didnt know anything about this at all.

Well I finally had to leave because I had to pick up my son from school. I left knowing the rate was there and that I almost had it but---DRAT -I spent all that nerve racking stressful time trying and failed.  I was hoping to bring back incredible news but I am sorry to say I failed. 
 

AKM IMRAN INTEL, 25 JAN

AKM IMRAN  (DINAR RV):Iraq has signed today a cooperation agreement with the Union of Arab Banks. THIS IS A SIGNED AGREEMENT IN ALL ITS FORMALITY IRAQ IS MOVING ECONOMICALLY TO THE INTERNATIONAL MARKET -- BANKING IS MOVING AND DEVELOPING -- THIS IS SIGNED SEALED AND DELIVERED -- FORMAL AGREEMENT. IMO WE ARE VERY CLOSE TO ARTICLE 8 AS A RESULT OF ALL THE ACTUAL ACTION IRAQ IS TAKING. IN ARTICLE 8 THEY CAN MOVE FORWARD WITH MONITORING TO THE INTERNATIONAL MARKET AND TRADE.
****
I want to... caution all of you not to stake timelines of an RV based on the publishing of the 2016 budget or any future budget in the official gazette. I know darn well not to expect an RV today or anytime within the next couple weeks, at least. This is not an opinion I bring but a FACT. But there is lots of news coming out about the necessity to do something with the value of the dinar against the US dollar. 

Since late October it is common conversation by Iraqi economists to put pressure on the GOI and the CBI to do something to raise the value of the dinar. We know that the dinar must go international if they are to be as diversified as they claim the need to move towards in their economy to get over this economic crisis. But it is not as simple as just “pulling the trigger” on the RV to correct the situation. No matter how hard Iraq wants the RV they will not be allowed to do it until they are fully ready.

TNT CC NOTES, 25 JAN

TNT Call notes 25-January-2016

RayRen:  [TNT Rap]  Good afternoon, TNT super-fantastic family!  It is Monday January 25, 2016. [audio checks]  Pam is having errands, and Winston is unwell – not sickness, but sore throat and sinuses.  Do please keep him your thoughts and he will be better in days or hours.  The more I use this new board, new to me, I didn’t think I’d have to learn it because nobody thought we would be here in January.  The board won’t let me in until the time releases the board at the top of the hour.  I think I’ve figured it out now, in case we need to have another call prior to THE call.
This is RayRen 98, talking to you on Marvelous Monday, and I didn’t expect tobe here on this side of the RV still having this type of conversation.  However, we will continue until there is no more reason.  In the tweet, I did say ‘limited intel’, because it’s just not out there.  What would we call new intel as opposed to maintaining the status quo?  We are still in ‘any time, any day, any minute’ mode.  That is still in effect from the banking people and other sources –high expectation, just can’t put our finger on the exact day or week.  So until we get that, what do you need to take care of before you get this done?  Every day, you have another 24 hours to take care of things. Where are we with our expectations now?
There are memos that you wouldn’t believe, plus some added on top of that.  There is a question we want to have answered:  what were we looking for on Friday.  Iraqi dinar is on Forex, and their rate is matching the CBI rate for the first time.  Could this be a sign of dinar being traded internationally.  We had to wait for Forex to open again this week, and now we know it was not the case, but it did create another piece of the puzzle.  We don’t know where that puzzle piece fits, so we will put it to one side for right now.
Some information came out over the weekend, and I want to share with you but also waiting for some information that other intel providers should be telling you. I  got a piece over a week ago and I’m surprised that no one else has mentioned it. Maybe they are waiting for confirmation.  I cannot make things true, but usually if they are true I get it from several different directions.  That was item #1.
Item #2 was about the memo that went out to exchangers, and I think I only get that last Thursday.  The memo was date-specific, telling them when to exchange. There has been no mention of that yet, either.
Item #3 was memos to US banks with similar verbiage, anticipating currencies being ready to exchange, and again this was date-specific.  I’m surprised that didn’t come out Friday or over the weekend, because that was confirmed and visually seen.
We were supposed to see the Iraqi Budget in all its glory on Saturday, then it showed up on Thursday but not in all its glory.  Another section came out this weekend, but still missing key ingredients.  The rate is in there, but it’s still not visible yet, not readily visible for the average people to read/view and come to conclusions.
Let’s talk about this bank: RAFIDIAN, over in Iraq.  Articles have gone out that this bank will be issuing smart cards in Baghdad, and that is the final place to be served.  That’s was exciting to read over the weekend, because we’ve always been told that when the Iraqi citizens get their money, we will get ours.  That doesn’t mean every single citizen, but we think every province should be represented at least.  Now the word is going out that smart cards are coming to Baghdad, thought they didn’t give dates.  Many of us are surmising that when that take plces, this it!  So the report is that the cards have started making their way into the province.  Not everyone will have one to start with, but like in Kurdistan, they waited a few days and then they had their cards.  We believe that this process has to commence in the Baghdad province, and then they have to be funded.  We should be happy with this information because we’ve seen it in the other provinces, so we can wait that out.  With respect to the RAF bank, I’m also hearing that the RAF bank is linking their cards internationally, starting yesterday. We’ll have to see how that work out.  So we are waiting for the rate, for the cards to be funded, and to see if they are fully international.  We all know that those are the steps, and I always through they would be done at the same time, but we are now seeing that the cards can be loaded and the revaluation happen later.  I don’t know how they will do all that. 
It’s all good information, and added to items 1, 2 and 3, that’s pretty exciting because they are looking for the international currency to change by a specific time-frame.  I can only be at peace with it because it is what it is.  I’m still trying to nail information that came to me on Friday – and I didn’t even talk about it on Friday.  If it’s good info, we’ll get it out to you on a tweet or call, or if it’s already happened, you might not care about it by then.  Meanwhile, it’s appropriate that some others have the limelight. I have no interest in being the ‘first’ to call the RV;  I will give you what you need.  These are not time sensitive, just good pieces of the puzzle.
Let’s look at questions from callers, and turn this into a training session.  If you are into the intel, put your hands down.  In fact, let’s hear from some first-time callers, or if it’s been six months since you asked a question.  If you’re not a first-time caller, put your hand down.
702 caller:  I’m excited, on edge, can’t wait for the next call!  Before, I heard that if you have nmore than the bank is insured for, is there a special account where you can put your money that will cover more than that.
RAyRen:  I don’t know if there is a special account, but if you are at the bank with, say, five million, then the bank can tell you how to protect your money.  I would rather go asking what they can do for me rather than asking for what you want, because you may not know what they can do for you.  You might want to say “This is what I want”, and “what product do you have to offer me that will satisfy me?”
Caller:  when you start negotiating and don’t like what they say, and you think you might want to go to another bank, and that second bank is lower, what do you do then?  Crawl?
RayRen:  The other bank will not have a lower rate, so you want to negotiate on interest, length of time you leave your money there, etc.  You can just go back to the first bank and say that you are interested after all.
713 caller:  I’ve been on PTR and TNT since it began.  If you break down the groups on TNT, we have always been told “next week” over and over again. You told us about the memos last week, and you said then “in a couple of days”.  Is that when you thought it would be activated:
RayRen:  And we are still in that window, “in the next couple of days”.  They wanted me to give specific dates, but we are still in the window, which is this week.
740 caller:  Last Friday, you said 1180 was not a good rate – why is that?  Why wouldn’t 1180 be better than 341?
RayRen:  1180 is the current rate, with 1180 dinar to the dollar, so one dinar is worth less than a tenth of a penny.  We are looking for the post-RV rate of $3.41 dollars per dinar. There is quite a difference there.  We are waiting for this to go crazy – at $3.41 in-country, at least.  That’s what I’m looking for.
Caller:  I’m hearing that they won’t do this until just before the elections because it might affect voting…
RayRen:  They said that two years ago and four years ago, too.  I am looking more substance than that.
Caller:  [Appreciation]  Vegas, Vegas, Vegas!
347 caller:  They talk about Iran and Iraq are being tied together – is that true?  When they were at the meeting last week they negotiated with the IMF and agreed to release the Iran and Iraqi currency at the same time because they are trade partners.
RayRen:  I just don’t know about that. I don’t know it to be true and factual or otherwise.
Caller:  I saw it on the internet, where they said that dollars were released for Iran because Iran has been released from sanctions and thus revalued.
RayRen:  The two countries were fighting and holding dollars to pop at the same time?  That doesn’t make sense to me.  You say the Iranian RV is being held back waiting on Iraq?  It sounds like you came to this argument with your conclusions already in place.  I don’t have anything concrete to confirm or deny what you are saying.  We’ll just have to wait until it comes out.
601 caller:  Everything thing alright with you? I’m blessed and highly favored, and happy to be on the team and on this call.
RayRen:  We’re working hard to bring you this information as we receive it. If we controlled this situation and could have made it go last week, I would have done so. 
Caller:  [Appreciation]  Vegas, Vegas, Vegas!
318 caller:  I’ve heard somewhere that the back wall would be 4. February.  Does that have any significance to our blessing?
RayRen:  I haven’t read anything on that, so I can’t speak on it. 
507 caller:  You’ve been talking about exchange centers and wealth managers.  Are they still going to be using exchange centers, or just watching for postings and go to the banks?
RayRen:  If they give us 800 numbers, then we will give those out.  If not, you should find the number for foreign currencies and make your own appointment.  They may not give it to us until the last minute or at all.  Be ready to call your bank yourself.
Caller: Who has the final go-ahead, do you think?
RayRen:  I don’t have enough pieces of the puzzle to see that. If you are talking about the Iraqi currency, then it’s Iraq, but there are a lot of other cookies in that cookie jar.
Caller:  Do you have rates for the dinar and zim?
RayRen:  Tony used to be asked NOT to give out rates;  no one has asked me to do that, but I’m going to give them the benefit of the doubt and stay away from calling rates.  If they want to give me those rates, they will come to you.  If not, on the next call, I will tell you.
954 caller:  I think that if you don’t have a question, you should be in the regular lines to just listen and leaves space for those with questions to get on the question line.  We do not control the RV;  the control is by others who we have no control over.  So asking questions about when it’s going to happen and how much it will be – that only frustrates people.  I have been on other calls where intel is given and not answering questions.  You have done a fine job, but people need to just listen and read about what’s happening in the world.  We cannot control this;  it’s not an investment with a trade going up and down.  This is not what we are here for.  I listen to the calls all the time, but others need to listen—so long as you are on the call, don’t ask dumb questions!
RayRen:  “When will it RV?” is not a good question.  If I had the answer, I’d be trading options!  Other questions are about other parts of the process. 
Caller:  I shouldn’t have called them ‘dumb’, but there is no way you can actually tell anyone when the RV will go, so I wish they would stop asking.  You are doing a fine job! [Appreciation]  Vegas, Vegas, Vegas!
563 caller:  Those bank memos – any  more clarification on those? 
RayRen:  Let’s be more specific.
Caller:  Can you got any more info, on the wording, etc.?
RayRen:  Item 2 was to the exchangers in Iraq, so they would be ready to exchange by a certain date which has not come yet.  Item #3 said the same thing to US banks, to be approved to trade between now and a particular date.  Item #4, the meme went from RAF bank making the smart cards effective immediately.  It depends on the language you use.  Everything probably is in place, and they are tying up loose ends.
RayRen:  Where does that put us today?  “Any minute, any hour”, with the banks still sitting on notification of currencies to be exchanged between now and a certain date, so it could happen at any time. There is a window they are working from over here and in Iraq, with the RAF bank issuing international smart cards, effectively immediately.  We’ll see how that unfolds today, tomorrow, as we wait for that specific day when it’s time for us to go and take care of business.  The wheels of progress are turning, we have more pieces of the puzzle, the clock is ticking.  I feel even better – are you ready?  If there is a need for us to be here on Wednesday, we will be here.  Any day really means any day – we may not be here by tonight, tomorrow, any day this week.  We can’t put our finger on it, but rest assured that it is coming and the reality will be here.  Fear disables;  faith empowers. Keep the faith!

Iraqi Dinar Currency to be Powerful to Enter in the Global Currency Markets, 25 JAN

Iraqi Dinar 123 News:– Osama Mehmoud, the global stock representative in Iraq stressed about the importance of integrative laws and economic action of law making. He also pointed out that linking the Iraqi dinar currency to the global economy has its own importance. The Iraqi currency should achieve its value against the global currencies. It would allow in providing more power to the economic process in the country. He further added in his press interview that current economic condition in Iraq needs more care. He pointed out that most of the laws related to the Iraqi economy are still need to get regulations for the economic management in the economic sector, according to the formula. The process in trade and economy are following an open economy as it is called market economy.
He further added that it would improve the economic management that would produce an uncertain economy. There are many industrialized nations depending on the open market that implemented the processes of production and the theory of import and export. The commercial exchange process between a numbers of companies should adopt a unified economic system. He gave an example of Iraqi economic reality that is continuously depending on letters of guarantee issued to the traders to manage the operations of import of goods. It is showing the limitations to the Iraqi verbal disapproval within the banks. It is also stopping to spread the Iraqi dinar currency into the international markets. As a result, the Iraqi dinar value decreased and unable to trade outside the Iraq. He stressed that importance of presenting the Iraqi dinar currency in the global currency markets.

MILLIONDAY TIDBITS, 25 JAN

“Iraq has signed today a cooperation agreement with the Union of Arab Banks…” THIS IS A SIGNED AGREEMENT IN ALL ITS FORMALITY IRAQ IS MOVING ECONOMICALLY TO THE INTERNATIONAL MARKET — BANKING IS MOVING AND DEVELOPING — THIS IS SIGNED SEALED AND DELIVERED — FORMAL AGREEMENT.
IMO WE ARE VERY CLOSE TO ARTICLE 8 AS A RESULT OF ALL THE ACTUAL ACTION IRAQ IS TAKING. IN ARTICLE 8 THEY CAN MOVE FORWARD WITH MONITORING TO THE INTERNATIONAL MARKET AND TRADE ETC. [Do you think Article 8 and a rate change will happen at the exact same time?] I THINK IT IS A RESULT — YES.    

UU6861 – “To Activate the Non-Oil Productive Sectors in Iraq” by Mnt Goat, 25 JAN

UU6861 – “To Activate the Non-Oil Productive Sectors in Iraq” by Mnt Goat
Hello Everyone,

So today I want to say one more time we will not see any significant value increase in the dinar unless certain laws and conditions are met. One of those conditions is the cleaning up of the CBI. I firmly believe that Dr Shabibi must be back in the CBI and it must be announced publicly that he is at the helm “officially” once again. From everything I am hearing from my CBI contact the USA is very angry that this has not yet already happened.

​They have also sent legislative consultants to assist in streamlining the parliamentary process and so keep asking what is the hold up in passing of the few last remaining needed laws.

As far as any progress on currency reform process we all know that the USA, WTO and the IMF want the lower denominations launched, like yesterday. So where are they?

This   weekend I figured it was time to catch up on any new news concerning the currency reform progress. So this was the big weekend to make my call. The contact in the CBI is telling me that Iraq is intentionally stalling, mostly from corruption in the leadership of the CBI. They tell me that since mid November they (meaning GOI) has scheduled the launching of the lower denominations twice already but still no action by the CBI.

The good news is there is no more guessing games. We now know who and the reason for holding up this event. One of the reasons is corruption  since the currency auctions will end once the RV happens. There is a ton of corruption in the auctions and huge sums of money being made by those controlling it. The other reason I am hearing is that some in the GOI finance committee feels it is not yet ready in meeting WTO requirements. On the other hand the WTO with the IMF say Iraq is more than ready.

So each points fingers at the other. This is of course ridiculous and so I want to add what I believe is happening. I believe it is the corruption in the CBI pure and simple and the GOI does not want to admit it has lost control of its monetary policy to the Maliki goons to the IMF or the USA. Remember the last two proxy governors were appointed by Maliki while he still held the prime minister position. But the good news is there is a plan to end this stalemate and return the CBI over to an independent monetary policy regulatory agency once again. I am being told the plan is to bring back Dr Shabibi.

We know that once they do launch the lower denominations their must be a 1:1 par with the US dollar for inflation adjustments first,  then later a full scale RV is planned at a much higher rate (pre-war plus equity).

Do not be fooled in thinking that this initial inflation adjustment is the RV, it is NOT. Many of these so called intel “gurus” will tell you it is and get you all hyper. They will use it to promote their wed sites and forums. But then when it does not show up in the exchanges or the banks, all will be disappointed once again for the 1,001 time. So please just ignore all these people since they haven’t a clue as to what is going on in Iraq.

For instance in Iraq (Iraq only) this is how it will work. Right now a 25,000 dinar note is worth about $23 US dollars. So once they adjust for inflation, the same note will be worth $22,500 – $28,500. Citizens will gladly run to the bank to exchange their bulky 3 zero notes (part of deletion of the zeros project) for the more secure, cleaner, newer notes and coins. They will no longer have to carry a stack of currency to the market for shopping or be weary of carrying stacks of currency home on pay day.

We may NEVER see this adjustment on the global exchanges since it will take between 5-10 days to rollout and monitor the impact first in Iraq. Get it straight in your head right now that Iraqi citizens will be converting from dinar old rate to dinar new rate and so when you hear rates in Iraq you must remember and apply this. For all of us in Europe, USA, Canada etc, we will be converting our dinar to our rate of exchange for our countries of origin currency. So you see in Germany my rate may be different than yours in USA since I am going from dinar to Euro and you are going from dinar to US dollars. Yes- you may hear about different rates in different countries. It all makes perfect sense (if we use our common sense).

I know, I know …..that these so called intel “gurus” get everyone very confused instead of truly helping since with all their jabber they always talk about rates in Iraq as they listen to their so called “boots on the ground” who know even less than they.   

Moving forward: I have heard that a delegation headed by secretary of the state for USA proceeded recently to Iraq for the main reason of moving the currency reform along and we may see some progress soon.  Look for articles about the change over in the CBI prior to any launching of these lower denominations.

Today’s News

Today is Monday January 25th  2016  and just 6 more days remaining in January. 

Parliament is now in session almost a week already and we have not yet seen much on the needed laws we have been waiting for.

Yesterday once again we hear confirmation that the Amnesty law is agreed upon by all and ready for a final vote. Will they vote on it soon?

The 2016 budget has also been passed, ratified and in the gazette. It is now open for spending allocations, but no RV(as I said it is not any indicator of the RV anyhow, it was not in 2015 and is not in 2016).

The problem of a huge deficit for 2016 still lingers as Abadi and parliament try to find ways to fill the gap. Now recent news that they are at least considering under study of increasing the value of the currency as an alternative. 

As I also commented many times already Iraq is trying to milk the west for more money and still feels it is entitled to it since it was bombed and the west should pay for its reconstruction. This is the attitude and they feel they are entitled to it. So this too has an impact on any movement for Iraq to take advantage for themselves the financial gains they can realize if they just moved forward more aggressively in all directions. They  also say that we must consider the large sums of monetary drain on fighting ISIS and DAASH on their economy. This is a factor that is impacting progress in the financial and economic sectors. But this fighting will not last much longer and then what will be their excuse?

The article is also warning everyone that if something is not done quickly that a severe financial crisis will emerge during the next 2 months.

I quote from the article below- “that Iraq will go through a severe financial crisis during the next two months”

I quote from the article below- “there is a crisis of confidence between the Iraqi government and international banks and even friendly countries of Iraq, as Iraq may not be able to pay its debts in the future for not the existence of an integrated infrastructure in addition to the lack of productivity of vital sectors can be an alternative to oil, such as agriculture, industry and tourism, as well as who is waging war against Iraq and the terrorist gangs that need to be big money.”

I quote from the article below – “He continued, so the international banks apologize for Iraq if he asked her to lend to face the financial crisis or to fill the budget deficit, calling on the government to resort to other alternatives other than oil, including a focus on productive sectors such as industry, agriculture and tourism as well as the awareness of citizens and instill confidence in it in order to deposit his money in Iraqi banks on the grounds that there is also a crisis of confidence between the government and local banks on the one hand and between the Iraqi citizen on the other.”
I quote from the article below – “As a member of the Finance Committee MP Ahmad Rashid stressed that "the economic situation may be confusing but bridging the fiscal deficit is a real dilemma, noting that" there are several measures of the government to overcome this crisis and is now in the process of study, INCLUDING RAISING TAXES AND THE VALUE OF THE CURRENCY for the purpose of bridging the budget deficit .

MYSTERY SURROUNDS THE IRAQI POSITION ON THE DEPLOYMENT OF US TROOPS TO SECURE THE BORDER WITH SYRIA
 :
01/24/2016   
Long-Presse / Baghdad

Expects that the US deployment of "special forces" near the Iraqi-Syrian border in preparation for battle retrieval of Mosul "Daash".

The new troops will come from Kuwait and will work on the separation of "Daash Iraq" from the other in Syria, according to the parliamentary committee for security and defense.

Furthermore, it does not exclude the parties in opposition to the National Alliance of the United States, and hinting to the possibility of using "force" against any foreign military presence in Iraq.

And speak other parties in the National Alliance for the existence of "quasi-consensus" within the Shiite bloc to reject Western interference in the country without government approval.

Despite the rejection that reported by the Prime Minister for the deployment of any foreign troops on Iraqi soil, but mystery still surrounds the official Iraqi position about the American officials statements.

Constipation border with Syria

In turn, US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter said Friday that the coalition led by the United States to fight "Daash" restore the cities of Mosul and tenderness, and that he will use "ground forces" in the framework of Strutijeth to achieve this.

He said Carter, who was speaking in Davos, Switzerland, "we must eliminate them in two places and I would like to make progress in this regard as soon as possible."

He said the coalition raids and bombs used to control the roads between the two cities and cutting off communications between them. "Of course this will separate the Iraqi theater of the Syrian theater."

Carter said he will be sending more ground troops likely to support the existing forces there but also part of a strategy to mobilize local forces "and not try to solve them.

For his part, says Mohammed al-Karbouli, a member of the parliamentary security committee, said that "liberalization of Mosul need to cut supplies coming from the Syrian tenderness controlled by Daash".
It is likely Karbouli, in connection with the (range), that "the US 101 Airborne Division in that task."

The 101st one of the elite units of the US military, and specializes in the use of helicopters to carry out offensive operations. Band phones, described as an atmosphere of more American teams and a number of 16 thousand troops and 270 Apache attack helicopters and Black Hawk helicopters and Chinook helicopters and contributed to the Kuwait war in 1991 and the Iraq war in 2003.

In late 2015 quoted (Army Times) American military, for military leaders as saying that "the headquarters of Task Force 101 in Kentucky will move to Kuwait, to lead combat missions and operations training and consulting Iraqi security forces during the battles for nine months."

Gen. Gary Viluxa, the division commander, confirmed that "the primary concern for the past three months was the study of the situation in Iraq." He pointed out that "the band mission in Iraq will start with the beginning of next year."

Forces free!
The Iraqi government, in turn confirmed a month ago that any deployment of foreign troops on Iraqi soil needs to coordinate with them. He said al-Abadi deploy troops without the consent of his government "is hostile."

But Karbouli says that "the government agreed to the international coalition, and the new force will be part of that alliance," adding that "the new forces are not wild in the conventional sense, but rather the quality of forces will have a special mission."

The president of the parliamentary bloc solution rejected the deployment of US forces Iraq to fight Daash that he "would be an incorrect decision." Karbouli says that "American power will provide free of weapons and control of the border 24 hours, with Iraq desperately needs so he was facing a financial crisis."

Member of the Commission on Security asserts that "Daash still fighting fiercely in Anbar and Salahuddin, despite victories in Ramadi and Tikrit," stressing that "Iraq needs US intervention to resolve the battles there and reduce the loss of local forces."

He says a member of the Union forces, the most prominent Sunni blocs, "The United States is responsible for the chaos in Iraq and the correct mistakes," but he corrects saying "Anscheran for a new occupation, but they are created from the problems and addressed them."

Liberal: Snquaomanm again
In parallel confirms Deputy for the Sadrist movement that "resistance factions would expel US forces as it did previously unknown, if entered in spite of the government."

The MP Mazen Mezni, a member of the Liberal bloc in an interview (range), that "the deployment of Western troops in Iraq would be a steal for victories popular crowd."

Mezni added that "the Iraqi forces and the crowd does not need foreign troops, especially as it has its own editing a number of cities."

On the other hand confirms the Liberal bloc member that "the National Alliance agreed almost entirely to reject the deployment of foreign troops, and that the head of government is part of that alliance."

He called the Sadrist bloc member US forces to "refrain from interfering in the affairs of Iraq," pointing out that "Iraq does not need even Astbartah to information from Washington and have to leave us and leave."
The cleric Moqtada al-Sadr suspended, the end of 2015, on news the deployment of US forces in Iraq as "rejects any kind of interference, whether land or air or even freely."


Citizen: accept conditions
On the other hand says MP Habib Terminal, a spokesman for the citizen's parliamentary bloc, said that "there is an agreement between the government and all political forces to reject any interference RSVP without government approval."

And confirms Terminal, through a statement with the (range), that "the government does not yet apply to the deployment of US forces in Iraq." But he said, "would be in favor of the citizen block any effort in supporting Iraq fighter Daash condition the government's approval."

Terminal ruled out that the United States of meddling in Iraq without the approval of his government, expecting that "the United States would not violate the security agreement signed between the two countries."

We can not do it alone. I believe that if we all make this our daily prayer you will see change. It is already working even in the short time since I have been publishing this prayer section. It does not matter what religion you believe, if you pray then to your oven beliefs entity it is still the same powers and good for all of mankind. Ultimately it is all the same God anyhow.

“Lord, protect Abadi and all who stand with him in righteousness, the Iraq and Coalition Soldiers who are fighting the good fight against terrorism, that they would be shielded from the enemy and would be Victorious against them! We ask that the Victory comes swiftly and healing of the Iraqi peoples and all whom have been effected by these evil doers can begin!

We pray for the process of the currency reform, the full implementation of  the Iraqi economy to full  international status and the bringing of prosperity and wealth to its people“  Amen!

Till next time…. Auf Wiedersehen!
