Dinar Updates w/BGG

DINAR GURUS UPDATE, 18 OCT

10-18-2017   Newshound Guru Enorrste   ...KAP [Guru Kaperoni] has found the actual reference that clears up this matter.  ...in some odd way, Allak was telling the truth.  ...however...this appears to be duplicitous and gives a false impression.  KAP is right:  Iraq is not yet ready.  Much needs to be done.  I would be surprised under the current circumstances if they began the float on January 1, 2018.  However, strange things come from this country, so I will hold a glimmer of hope.  Saleh has said numerous times that the change to a float should take place at the beginning of a new year. [reference Guru Kaperoni post, part 1 and 2, 10-18-2017]

10-18-2017   Intel Guru Jester
 
  I WILL TELL YOU THIS... IT IS GOING TO GET WORSE BEFORE IT GETS BETTER... WE ARE WARNED THAT THERE WILL BE DELIBERATE MISINFORMATION FROM MANY PLACES INCLUDING THE MEDIA... SO KEEP YOUR STUFF TOGETHER AND STAY CALM... I HAVEN'T MESSED YOU UP YET... SO AT LEAST YOU KNOW IT IS COMING...

10-18-2017   Newshound Guru Adam Montana   Parliament is active right now. They are addressing a myriad of topics, passing and approving items, getting stuff done... but we are all wondering  "What about HCL and Article 140?", right?  This is to be expected, in my opinion. Those two subjects are "catalyst items", and once they go through, there's no putting that toothpaste back in the tube! In fact, once they are even brought up in a serious manner, that is the start of an avalanche that won't be stopped. As we all know, avalanches start with something as small as a single pebble... so don't let the waiting get you down. Once this baby starts sliding, it's going to happen fast.

10-18-2017   Intel Guru Frank26   Article:   "Media leaks: Barzani will resign in a speech today"  Quote:  "According to media leaks, Barzani will resign from office and will transfer all his powers to the Prime Minister."   B will resign ...(Wednesday)...He pushed it too hard...

10-18-2017   Intel Guru Bruce   On Saturday Alak became officially the new Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq, the CBI. It was at that time Saturday that he did do an announcement to talk about the Iraqi dinar being an international currency again and the fact his words were there are no longer any restrictions to the Iraqi dinar for exchange internationally. That is so huge.  There is one more announcement we expect...made by Abadi in Iraq, and it suppose to happen after morning prayer. That is usually around 7am local time in Baghdad...That is close to when Abadi final announcement which I am understanding will be the final nail in the coffin supposed to be made. We are right where we need to be. ...we are pretty much at the end of the ride.

10-18-2017   Newshound Guru Kaperoni   Quote:  "Iraq continues to avail itself of the transitional arrangements under Article XIV, Section 2 but no longer maintains any exchange restrictions or multiple currency practices subject to Article XIV, Section 2, and currently maintains one exchange restriction and one multiple currency practice (MCP) subject to Fund approval under Article VIII, Sections 2(a) and 3."   They need to payoff Jordan and get the spread within 2%.  The problem is the spread is going in the wrong direction.  Today, it is about 9%.  The gurus are jumping all over this as if to say Iraq is in compliance and currency reform could begin anytime.  Wrong!  They may not disclose the time they begin currency reform, but if they want international banking (freedom of movement of capital)  to perpetuate the influx of investment capital they have lots of work to do.  And we can chart that progress.  [post 2 of 2]

10-18-2017   Newshound Guru Kaperoni   Article:  "Governor of the Central Bank heads to America to attend meetings of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank"  This visit with Allaq is nothing more than a "duckies and bunnies" show.   Those listening to him at the event might believe what he is saying, but those of us who follow and read all the news, reports, etc know the CBI has a lot of work to do if they want international banking (CBI law, deposit insurance, IMF Article VIII compliance, etc.)  Technically, Allaq is correct that he has no restrictions...but that is under Article XIV...  [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]


10-18-2017   Intel/Newshound Guru payray   [...it looks like we are in another prime window for RV time, shall we say until the end of the month at least?]   If not this week, or within the week... There is a reason why all of this has come together as it has in such a short period of time... It was a part of the plan... As dramatic as it has been...

10-18-2017   Newshound Guru Walkingstick   [I am also happy with the announcement that recently came directly from Alak about restrictions being removed...]   I can, say this...it was not a message to all, as...a whole...But, a message to particular entities...Delivered, in a calculated time frame...months, after the fact...For, very good reason/s...If, events continue as they have...we will, hear...much more from the CBI Gov...shortly.

chattels: Iraqi " crise du jour " - Great phrase, so true.

 chattels: I ahve been researching something that Duke77 posted here that confused me.

chattels: Duke77: According to the IMF documents, the mcp ending would mean they have their 2% between their currency value and the USD. that means they have it’s worth within 2% of the USD. It has nothing to do with market rate and official rate within Iraq. That’s just stupid.

When I read this on the IMF earlier and sent it to a friend, he immediately responded that all the gurus have missed it because according to the IMF, the dinar has to be within 2% of the currency they are pegged to.

Since the dinar is pegged to the USD as Alak said in the video when he was speaking about this, the dinar is valued within 2% of $1.

Read more at: https://dinardetectives.com/iqdcallsxcv48/

chattels: My reasearch indicates that the analysis by Duke77 ignores the " peg rate ". Many countires peg to the US Dollar, but the value of their currency is not within 2% of the value of the dollar. There is a peg / conversion rate.

chattels: See http://www.investopedia.com/articles/forex/061015/top-exchange-rates-pegged-us-dollar.asp

Doug_W: great point "C"

chattels: Look at any of those countries and there is a peg rate shown. So, if Iraq were to abandon it's MCP and remain pegged to the US Dollar as stated by Alaq, it does not mean that the IQD will be worth within 2% of one US Dollar.

chattels: The value of the IQD is identified as a program rate and a market rate.

Doug_W: we can sure HOPE tho "C"

chattels: Both pegged or relative to the US Dollar.

chattels: @Doug_W While we breathe, we hope, eh ?

chattels: @Doug_W Currently the IQD program rate is 1190 and the market rate is about 1260.

chattels: @Doug_W Kaperoni compares the two to formulate a 2% variance compliance. Poorly stated by me, but .............

chattels: Only one of the countries pegged to the US Dollar has a peg rate of 1.0 or within 2% 0f the value of the US Dollar. Cuba.

Once they reach the cap rate, do you think it will stay in that range or drop back down?]  FIRST OF ALL...RI IS THE FREE FLOAT... NOT TO IT...TIME IS NOT REQUIRED FOR THAT PHASE...SECOND ...ONCE CAPPED AT PEAK OF RV IS BECAUSE THE IQD WILL...NEVER NEVER NEVER EVER GO DOWN ONCE AT RI / RV.  [Is the RV the same as an international rate?]   WELL...I SUPPOSE...FOR AN RV INTRODUCES THE IQD TO THE INTERN MARKETS THAT WANT TO GET THEIR HANDS ON IT TO USE IT IN TRADE ...BUYING AND SELLING WHICH WILL ROCKET THE VALUE OF THE IQD INTERNATIONALLY.  [This is not meant to be a rate...What opinion do you...have that will be the high vs low for Iraq’s currency at his peak rate post RV?]   IMO...RI   1  RV  4.

MNT GOAT UPDATE, 18 OCT

October 18, 2017 Mnt Goat News Brief

Hi Everyone,

I bring you much news today.

So once again I have to clarify some very misleading lies that are being perpetrated on the dinar community by this guy named Bruce and his BigCall.

FIRST LIE: On Saturday Allaq became the “official” governor of the Central Bank of Iraq.

It seems Bruce is getting feedback by some idiot who is watching the news broadcast from the speech of the acting Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq (CBI), Ali Al-Allaq. Allaq was in the USA at a World Banking Conference in Washington DC last week and was asked by the Washington Institute of Near East Policy to give an update on the financial affairs of the country.

He did so. If you truly listen to the speech (as I did, instead of just repeating rumors), you would see that he was introduced as the governor of the CBI, as has been done many times already in many other past meetings with the IMF, UN, World Bank, etc,,etc,,that he has attended. So why was he not then the “official “ governor since his introduction was exactly the same?

This is because the recent rumor got propagated by another rumor last week that this was going to happen. Just a rumor nothing else. This came from TNT and Frank26. The Washington Institute of Near East Policy does not appoint governors or any positions to any members of any middle eastern nations Central Banks.

So this is what happened - one rumor fosters another rumor and before you know it they take the rumor and make it into intel. Folks this is darn right lying and I will call for what it is. This is so typical with these idiots and no wonder why you all get so confused as to what is going on. I am desperately trying to keep it all straight, REAL and HONEST. You see these so called intel “gurus” feed each other. Each other is their “sources” as they claim. So there really are no “sources” just a bunch of idiot gurus feeding off each other’s made up rumors based on half truths. These half truths have some tiny part of truth and exploited into full blown rumors. The funny part is these are the same people who claim they hate the shadow government and want to reform the system, yet they are just as bad as the system to are protesting over.

My advice to all these so called intel “gurus” – IF YOU REALLY WANT CHANGE, THEN BEGIN IT WITHIN YOURSELF.

Saturday’s introduction does not mean he is now “officially” appointed the governor the CBI. Get it?

We have absolutely no other confirmation that this has officially been done, and when he is appointed, if he gets appointed, you will not have to guess at it, since it will be international news and widely known. I rechecked with my CBI contact in Iraq and Allaq is still a proxy governor. Why must we go down these foolish rabbit holes once again. Again they are making this rumor so as to have another event to justify their foolishness of an any day / every day RV foolish. They need to keep you hyped up to sell you their products and get you to keep coming back to their sites and conference calls. Get it?

Yes - the Washington Institute of Near East Policy took some liberties in using the title of Governor of the CBI in introducing Allaq and maybe they shouldn’t have done this. But what are they going to call him? Are the going to call him a proxy governor? No- this would be disrespectful and they used a generic title in the introduction. That is all if was.

All they know is Allaq is from the Central Bank if Iraq and he uses the title of governor. This is what they were told prior to the introduction. How the hell do they know of any difference. They are not following all the past politics as we are. We should know better and not assume. Shame, shame, shame on you Bruce and the idiot who passed on this news to you.

The CBI is really governed by a board of directors and collectively they make the monetary policy decisions. Allaq was only in the USA representing this CBI. So please, please, please stop all this hype something that did not occur by taking an ounce of sand (rumor by an idiot) and making it into a mountain of intel.

ANOTHER LIE: Okay so I have to clarify yet another lie told to you on Bruce’s recent call. He told you and I quote – “he (meaning Allaq) did talk about the Iraqi dinar being an international currency once again” and “that there are no longer any restrictions to the Iraqi dinar for exchange”.

Folks Allaq did not say this. Go listen to his speech for yourself. Here is the link:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=7&v=oRv87HmZNQs

So another lie!

Who is telling him this stuff or is he just making it all up himself and blaming his “source” so he is off the hook for lying?

What Allaq did say is this – “eliminate the restrictions on the multiple exchange rates (MCP) and the use of multi currencies resulting in Dinar use only”. This is referring to getting off the restrictions of the mandatory use the US dollar to trade with the outside world. This means getting off Chapter VII. This is said to be happening in the coming days. Note he did not say it already happened, as Bruce said.

The good real news in Allaq’s speech was totally overlooked and that is news of a plan for resolving all differences with Kuwait and we know he meant the final resolution of the $4 billion owed in war reparations. This will get them totally out of Chapter VII and this is needed prior to any RV. So this is such good news. Why did Bruce not mention this news? He did not mention it because it is not associated with an immediate RV and he must keep his listeners hyped up for an every day / any day rumor. Since Allaq talked about “in the coming months” this does not suit his purpose of immediacy and getting you hyped up so you come back to his Thursday’s call. Folks you must see what he is doing. He is playing mind game with everyone as so many of the others are doing the same. You know who they are.

I also listened to another call last weekend and it appears Wang Dang still believed Talibani was dead for many years before his funeral last week. Seems they must have frozen the body all this time? He also commented that he still believes that Dr. Sinan Al-Shabibi is in Iraq and is heading the CBI as the governor. Will someone please straighten out this guy, please. And he is someone that many people rely on for getting accurate intel from for this investment? Again another idiot.

Okay so let’s get back to Bruce and clarify yet more of his nonsense from his so called intel call from last night on the BigCall. Yes – a call, big and full of lies. We should rename the call the “Big Lying” call.

I have quotes close to what he said - So he also said that “the debit cards were “pre-loaded” with a solid rate”. “A real good “solid rate” then they when blank rates for a time and then came back “popped out” with a rate well over $4.00”.

Folks do you know just how stupid all this is. First of all, the debit cards he is talking about are not preloaded. Pre-loaded cards are gift cards that you purchase in the store. Debit cards tie to a bank account. If you use the card in an ATM machine the bank software program goes out to the foreign currency exchange gets the current rate and translate the money using the currency exchange rate to the country to which you are using the ATM.

For example if you are in Germany using an American debit card and are taking out $20 in cash you will only get Euros since Germany uses only Euros. The bank’s software ties into an international banking system that finds your bank in the USA, sends the transaction to it. Finds the bank account and translates the appropriate amount of USD in your account to Euros. In this case it may debit your account $22 USD in the bank in America to get the equivalent of $20 in Euros. Get it? This is just an example. It is using the international rate on the currency exchange to figure out how much the Euro is worth in its equivalent US dollars.

So if someone uses a debit card issued from Iraq while in the USA the system goes to the Iraqi bank via the international banking system, verifies there are sufficient dinars. Then translates the appropriate amount of dinars to US dollars to meet the request. Since he/she is in the USA they will get USD only in an ATM in the USA. The rate used is the translation is a program rate of 1182 or whatever it currently is. I think it when to 1200+ over the last couple days. Get it? This means the bank will debit 1200+ dinars for every dollar it issues out in the ATM. The rate is not on the card, it is taken from the foreign currency exchange.

Let’s take one more example. If a citizen within Iraq wants to use an ATM to get cash (the ATMs are currently shut off but this is just an example) they will get dinars. There is no translation to be made. Iraq is staying with dinars. Just as in the USA as a US citizen having a US bank account, you will get US dollars. The US used and is staying on US dollars.

So all this crap about new rates or people exchanging in Iraq is nothing but lies. There is absolutely no reason for anyone in Iraq to worry about the rate of exchange to US dollars, as the average citizen. Plus the ATMs are not functional, plus they are getting paid electronically now. So we can debunk all these lies right off. Sorry Bruce your lies just can’t hold up. We see thru your lies.

This only comes into play if you are a merchant and need to exchange dinars to US dollars in order to do business with the importers. This is mandatory since this is the law, due to sanctions still in place. This is Chapter VII sanctions. When these sanctions are lifted they can then do business directly with the dinar.

The next piece of garbage intel is that he said the rate changes, as he stated it changed to blanks and then popped out with a very high rate over $4.00. Really? Folks how does a rate, if it were hard coded on a card change anyhow? You have the card in your hand. Is there some magic going on that we are not aware of? So this shows yet another lie. 

So the rate is not on the card and we know that as a fact. So what the hell was this guy Bruce talking about anyhow? I seriously don’t think he knows and he is just repeating some garbage intel from his idiot source. When will he learn this “source” is nothing but an idiot.

I highly recommend that everyone stay away from Bruce’s intel calls (BigCall). I would not even be addressing this today if it were not for hundreds of questions I received today on his nonsense. Again take your questions to the person making the statements and challenge THEM not me. I am not making these ridiculous statements.

More news….

The Iraqi army says it has taken full control of Kirkuk following a major advance on Kurdish-held territories.

The federal government in Baghdad and sources inside the city told Al Jazeera on Monday that Iraqi security forces had captured the governorate building in the center of Kirkuk city.

According to security forces, troops moved into the building with no opposition from Kurdish Peshmerga fighters.

A dozen Humvees from Iraq's US-trained Counterterrorism Service arrived at the building and took position in the vicinity, alongside the local city police.

There was no immediate comment from Kurdish authorities.

Just in Oct 17th - Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said Tuesday that Kurdistan Region’s September referendum, which backed separation from Iraq, has now become “history”.

Regarding the situation in Kirkuk, Abadi stressed that “Iraqi forces will not engage into infighting”, adding that “any assault on Kurds is an assault on us”. He said his government would “soon declare the liberation of all Iraqi territories and clearing the borderline with Syria”.

Concerning press reports telling of a deal with Kurdistan Region to split Kirkuk into several administrations to be run jointly by Baghdad and Erbil, and Abadi denied the notion outright.

(So in reality we know there is now peace in Kirkuk and the GOI is trying to work it out instead of fighting. ISIS is gone from the region. There are still some boarder issues and so a liability ISIS could return if not carefully patrolled. What the final result for governing the region will be, we don’t yet know. There is nothing right now but a bunch of speculation and rumors flying around.

My advice – just let it all play itself out and we will see what comes out of the shaker cup…..lol…..lol….yes it is all just mixed up right now…)

More news….

The Iraqi government’s expectation is that by the end of this year the Islamic State will be defeated and all Iraqi territory will be back under government control.

(So once again we are beginning to see a target arise that is showing us maybe EARLY 2018 for a reinstatement of the IQD. I have showed you other evidence too in previous newsletters so I am not just giving you my arbitrary “opinion” but showing you proof along the way as to why I am saying this.

1. In the other 4 targeted attempts to RV they targeted EARLY in the year to do it. In fact afterwards they told us it was for January of that year.

2. Once we are seeing the prime minister telling us that ISIS fighting will be done and out of Iraq by the end of the year. I believe they are syncing up a timeframe once again for the end of the year;

3. We wait for the re-education articles from the CBI and the Financial Ministry to come to us. I believe these may begin very soon, if in fact I am correct in my new timeframe. This will be our confirmation of this theory. Again nobody knows for sure and nobody will know.

I can tell you emphatically and honestly that the RV has not yet happened, the ATMs are not giving out the lower denominations and no matter what all these idiot gurus are telling you the demonic group called NESARA is NOT going to restore some so called Republic for you and institute a new constitution in the US. Just be careful who you follow and support. You might not like the results of these idiots. They can pray and talk big of God and healing and all that other stuff but in reality they are charlatans (wolves) masked in sheep’s clothing. The bible warns us about these kinds of characters who will hide behind faith and fool you. All they want is to convince you of their sincerity to get you to follow them. This guy Yosef is the worst of all and I am beginning the believe he is the ring leader of this demonic group. If I were you I would just stay away from him and any conference call he is on.

Remember talk is cheap and actions speak louder than words. So far nothing he has ever said is correct, can be proven as FACT and it is all rumors and conjecture. How many times has he told you already the RV has taken place and the “New Republic” and “GCR” is here? Yet nothing ever happens. Why? Read my lips (or key strokes….lol…lol…) – THERE IS NO NEW REPUBLIC AND THERE IS NO GCR! Get it?

GOVERNOR OF THE CENTRAL BANK OF IRAQ, ALI AL-ALAQ, MET WITH MEMBERS OF THE UN SECURITY COUNCIL

Baghdad Mawazine News

The governor of the Central Bank of Iraq, Ali al-Alaq, met with members of the UN Security Council to discuss the important files at an official invitation addressed to him. ( in other words they invited him for a talk while he was in the USA. Seems he is tying up a lot of loose ends while in the USA. Why all these meetings? Why is he so active all of a sudden?)

The Director of the Information Office of the Central Bank of Iraq, Acer Jabbar in a statement received / Mawazin News / copy, that "the governor of the Iraqi Central Bank Ali Alalak met in New York with members of the UN Security Council in the United Nations building, WHERE THIS MEETING IS THE FIRST OF ITS KIND IN THE WORLD "ADDING THAT" WHERE THE GOVERNOR OF THE CENTRAL BANK OF IRAQ IS THE FIRST GOVERNOR OF A CENTRAL BANK TO ATTEND SUCH MEETINGS. "

He added that "during the meeting was to hear a detailed explanation on the experience of this bank in the fight against money laundering and terrorism financing and members of the Security Council and the work of the Iraqi Central Bank and its administration during the current period and the accompanying exceptional circumstances experienced by Iraq."

(Is he trying to get the UN convinced that “SECURITY” is not longer an issue for Iraq? Can he be hoping they go along with a plan to reinstate the currency soon now that the security issue is resolved? Just asking…..lots of questions)

URGENT : THERE IS NO LONGER AN APOLOGY FOR DELAYING AND POSTPONING THE CONSOLIDATION OF STATE POWER

Ayna-Baghdad]

Speaker of Parliament Salim al-Jubouri said that what happened in Kirkuk province can not be considered a "declaration of war."

"The current procedures [in Kirkuk] are to impose the control of the federal state, they are carefully and carefully taking care of the presence of civilians, and recorded the operations of law enforcement from the beginning and clean professional and professional effort."

"The anniversary of the vote on the constitution coincided with law enforcement operations and the extension of state authority in various areas of the homeland, especially in Kirkuk, the Iraqi city," he said.

"The Kurds, Arabs, Turkmen and all components in Iraq in general and Kirkuk in particular brothers and they are equal rights and duties before the law can not allow the attack on any Iraqi under any circumstances." 

He pointed out that "the sources of wealth in Iraq is central and the constitution is the right of all Iraqis."

Jubouri pointed out that "the participation of the Peshmerga in the liberation is large and distinctive and important and undeniable, and the actions do not target this combat force, which must be followed by the command of the commander-in-chief of the armed forces."

He stressed that "it is important that all components participate in maintaining security and that the national consensus is not influenced in the administration of the province of Kirkuk, and the relevant parliamentary committees will follow the situation in the province and take its supervisory and supervisory role to cross this stage and achieve the best results for the processes of extension of state authority."

KURDISH LIST CALLS BARZANI TO APOLOGIZE AND END HIS “POLITICAL LIFE”

Baghdad today – The Kurdish new generation called on Monday for Barzani to apologize to the people of Kurdistan and immediately resign from his post, ending his political life, while threatening to resort to the street.

THE LIST SAID IN A STATEMENT THAT “BARZANI AND THE LEADERSHIP OF THE FIVE RULING PARTIES IN THE REGION MUST SUBMIT THEIR RESIGNATIONS IMMEDIATELY, because they are the cause of the current situation,” indicating that “if the regional leaders did not recognize responsibility for these events, they will seek to move the street to end this government Failed “.

(Maybe the US citizens should demand the same of some of their govt officials and take an example from Iraq?)

The list added that “the events of Kirkuk have shed the curtain on the situation in Kurdistan, AND SHOWED THAT THE TRADITIONAL PARTIES HAVE FAILED TO DELIVER our people to safety, but on the contrary they put the Kurds in a dark spiral, and the failure in Kirkuk back to that political elite controlling the political life In Kurdistan since the early eighties of the last century. ”

According to the statement, “what is happening now is only the preliminary results of the referendum, which Massoud Barzani insisted on the September 25, 2017 with the help of political parties and their traditional leadership, and the exclusion of advice and suggestions of friends of our people at home and abroad and to make personal interests above the higher interests of the people of Kurdistan” .

The list demanded “the removal of the government of Najran Barzani, the acceleration of the formation of an interim government does not organize traditional political figures, and the new government in cooperation with the United Nations to prepare for the elections of the parliament of Kurdistan in accordance with international standards,” noting that “the Kurdish people face a serious dilemma, In which everyone will critically examine the new reality and hold accountable those responsible for these events. ”

THE BIG CALL, 18 OCT

THE BIG CALL WITH BRUCE TUESDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2017, INTEL ONLY

TRANSCRIBED BY PINKROSES


Bruce: Welcome Everybody to the Big Call tonight. I was debating not even doing a call tonight. I talked to the team about it and thought we would be better to do the call and talk a little about some things than have a bunch of people email us what happened to the call tonight.

We did the call tonight as a preventative measure. Tonight we are pretty much at the end of the ride. That is the case and now I will tell you what I am hearing now.

Bruce: First of all I want to thank everybody for coming in and listening to the Big Call so faithfully these over the last 6 years. I am excited because I really didn’t think I would do a call tonight. I knew we had approx 25,000 people listening either live to the call or to the replay, and reading the transcript.
....
I want to thank Pinkroses for doing such a beautiful job in transcribing our call, just a wonderful thing she is doing for us and I appreciate that. A lot of people just pick up the notes she gets from the call and we appreciate that. We are heard from a lot of people and our information is gets put online to a lot of places.

Bruce: This thing cannot go without Iraq being in position. Here is what we are hearing about Iraq right now. On Saturday Alak became officially the new Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq, the CBI. It was at that time Saturday that he did do an announcement to talk about the Iraqi dinar being an international currency again and the fact his words were there are no longer any restrictions to the Iraqi dinar for exchange internationally. That is so huge. That is a big announcement that he made.

Bruce: There is one more announcement we expect late tonight here in the United States made by Abadi in Iraq, and it suppose to happen after morning prayer. That is usually around 7am local time in Baghdad. That is approximately the time announcement is made is around midnight tonight EST. That is close to when Abadi final announcement which I am understanding will be the final nail in the coffin supposed to be made.

Bruce: From what I am hearing shortly thereafter we could get notified and the 800 number could come out. I would put that out as directed on my website:thebigcall.net. If I am allowed to email to my people, I will email the number to the people that have who registered on our new website: bigcallunviverse.com.

Anybody that registered, free to sign up, just put your email in and we have it to do future emails and let you know on how we are doing on projects and when our next call will be, etc. Keep that in mind if you haven’t already.

We have had over 7,000 people who have registered to our new website:bigcalluniverse.com. There is probably more that will come on and do that now. I also if we are allowed to and directed to, I will put out the 800 number in that email and to a few other places online.

Bruce: That is what is happening from that prospective of it going very shortly with Alak announcement from Iraq on Saturday and they put it out in print on Sunday. There has been
another blackout that started today from Iraq, There is still a veil of secrecy from getting all the information that we think should be coming out. I don’t think that will last much longer.

Bruce: Where is the dinar now? It is on preloaded debit card. One is a global debit card for duo citizens, and the other one is issued inside Iraq. Both cards are through Chase bank. We know people who have these cards. We had a solid rate that they have seen on their cards. Then today the cards went blank. There was no rate showing that lasted one hour and 13 minutes. Then a new rate popped up. The new rate was a solid rate, no flashing, no dashes and that rate was almost $4.00 higher than the previous rate that was there the last 6 days.

Bruce: Now we have a solid indicator of a great rate on the dinar. The rate there is now what is the PNR or Privately Negotiable Rates for those who are using the Redemption Centers doing exchanges on the Dinar, Dong, Rupiah, and Afghani, and redeeming the Zim. It is s a very good rate if you ask for a PNR. You should see a high rate or see one higher than what is on those debit cards. They are loading them with profits from oil, etc. That is a very positive sign that rate change was made today with a solid rate. We are way up there. It is crazy.

Bruce: Also last night I heard a new rate on the Dong which was higher than we had yet.
It is not responsible for me to give you the rate. These are so good you will be way more than pleased. These are not rates the John Q Public will get. These are rates designed for us in the Internet Group. The PNR rates are those that you would ask for as you discus your various humanitarian projects and your various plans to do with this money after the redemption of the Zim is done and your exchange.

Bruce: We had 31 Tier 2 banking institutions allowed to exchange the Dong, Dinar, Rupiah and the Afghani. They are not allowed to exchange the Zim. The Zim is primarily only going to go thru HSBC. Period. That is who we will be using at the Redemption Centers because HSBC is the lead bank. They displaced Wells Fargo as the main bank even though Wells Fargo is very much part of the exchange process.

Bruce: The Zim will be thru the Redemption Centers which there is 7430 of them in North America and you will be able to redeem the Zim. We use the term redeem because the Zim is a gold backed bond. We use the term exchange when we talk about the other currencies. 31 different banking institutions will do exchanges.

Primarily they will send out emails to their previous customers who bought currencies prior for them to make the exchange if they want. That will happen sort of under the idea of John Q Public. That could happen right when we are exchanging. There may not be a delay when John Q Public goes. We should have 11 days at the Redemption Centers to exchange at PNR or Privately Negotiable Rates. Will the John Q Public get the lower front screen rates at banks that do exchange foreign currencies? If they hear or call the bank, they will be able to do those exchanges that way.

Bruce: Beyond that, let’s talk about Redemption Centers and Call Centers. We have Primary Call Centers for the initial toll free number. If you don’t have Zim, you don’t mention you have Zim but you have other currencies. You will stay with that Call Center, and they will go by your zip code and demographic. If you do have Zim let them know that right away. They will transfer you to a Secondary Call Center. Those are out there in great quantity throughout the country. You will be transferred to those and you be set up by an appointment based on your zip code and do your exchange and redeem your Zim. You have a Primary and Secondary Call Center.

Bruce: Last night the Primary Call Centers have been activated and notified and they know what the deal is. They are set up and ready in place. The Secondary Call Centers have not had that happen yet. At 10:25 last night they were notified in an update which we don’t know what was in the update. They were called last night and then today at 4:15pm there was going to be a second update.

What happened was they pushed that from this afternoon up to tonight till 10:30pm EST. That is when the second possible final update to the Secondary Call Centers will be delivered in that vicinity at 10:30pm EST or slightly thereafter. They should get a heads up in my opinion when they plan to report, when it is go time, all those things could be part of the update.

Bruce: We have another situation in Iraq. The Qi cards The people that received that rate change today, they received an application for their cards that would allow them to go in shortly after midnight tonight and get access to the new rate and balance on those cards shortly after midnight tonight. That is happening to the citizens and you have Abadi’s announcement after morning prayer about 7am Baghdad time from Iraq about midnight EST. That should line up to what we are talking about when it comes to the timing for those cards to turn live. There is a lot happening and a lot of good news.
Bruce: The other thing we did hear was that the Chinese Premier is suppose to make a global announcement about the start time of the Big Call tonight that the world was on a gold back system. That all the currencies around the world were on a gold back system, asset back, I believe gold back was going to be used.

I have been on the Big Call and I don’t know that. That is a really possibly that announcement was made about 9pm EST. That is basically, in my opinion, the Gesara announcement. You have all the currencies on the gold standard and asset back. We are not 100% gold back but enough of our currency gold back to satisfy the IMF requirements. Each currency is backed by assets to give value to these currencies.

That is a very positive move between the announcement made by Iraq by the new Governor of the CBI on Saturday and the new announcement to be made tomorrow morning, and then China’s announcement about 9pm EST tonight.

Bruce: We are right where we need to be. We are waiting for notification, the all important call for me to put out the toll free number to our web site:thebicall.net and email all who registered to our new web site:bigcalluniverse.com, We will stay up with it that way and I will put it out to a couple places online. It won’t be long before you see it.

Bruce: I want to thank all to coming in and listening tonight. Thank you Sue, Bob, Pastor Steven, and Kent. Thank you everybody in Big Call Universe, and let’s hope the blessing is right there and this is the last call preceding the blessing. Stay in touch with our website for future calls and information. When this blessing comes, we are going to take time off for about a month. Everybody has things to do such as meetings with their Wealth Manager, CPAs, Attorneys. Also to take vacations and take the time and enjoy it. Do not go crazy with it. Enjoy the ride as we move into this new paradigm. Good Night Everybody.

THANK YOU BIG CALL AND BRUCE, HUGSSS

Adept1:  What I was taught to do has several steps: 1. Set up private nonstatutory trust. 2. Set up trust bank account (easy). 3. CONVEY currency into the trust. 4. Exchange into the trust bank account…. If you exchange into your own personal account, under your name, you will get slapped with taxes because you OWN that money. You don't want to own it, you want to control the use of it.

CIA Urges Trump To Delay Release Of 3,000 Never-Before-Seen Documents On JFK Assassination

by Tyler Durden

Oct 18, 2017 5:25 AM

More than 3,000 never-before-seen documents from the FBI, CIA, and Justice Department on the assassination of John F. Kennedy are scheduled be released, with many experts fearing that such a large release of secret JFK assassination documents will spur “a new generation of conspiracy theories.”
 
According to Roger Stone, the CIA is urging President Donald Trump to delay disclosing some of the files for another 25 years.
 
Roger Stone said in a post on his website…
 
“They must reflect badly on the CIA even though virtually everyone involved is long dead.”

Samson:  China pledges more economic openness

18th October, 2017

Chinese President Xi Jinping said in a speech to the General Conference of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in Beijing on Wednesday that his country's economy would "not close" to the world, but on the contrary "open more," pledging to treat foreign companies as "fair."

"The system will protect the legitimate rights and interests of foreign investors and all foreign companies registered in China will be treated equally and fairly," Xi said in his speech.

The remarks came as Beijing faces charges from its trading partners of protectionism and discriminatory policies against foreign companies.

In January 2017, Xi Jinping surprised the world by calling for globalization to show its benefits to the World Economic Forum in Davos, stressing that China would "keep its doors open" to the protectionist tendencies of the United States under President Donald Trump.
....
The EU Chamber of Commerce in Beijing announced in September that European companies "are fed up with these promises, and they are well aware of these commitments that never materialize." He called on the communist regime to do "concrete actions instead of words" Press ".

Foreign companies are prohibited from working in many sectors, while in other sectors it is necessary to establish partnerships with local companies, which forces them to transfer technology so that they can operate in China

Samson:  Scientists find the missing "Amber Room"

14:16 - 18/10/2017
Picture
German amphibians have discovered that an amber chamber stolen by the Nazis is now in caves under the city of Dresden in the east of the country.

"In the Second World War, the Nazis equipped secret caves in the Hartenstein Hills, the Amber Chamber that disappeared without trace, and there is a railway station around the caves, where a train coming from Kingsburg was observed in 1945," the scientists said.

Scientists began a search for the "Amber Room" treasure, after being spotted by a "reliable source" in tunnels under the Hartenstein Hills.

They used geological surveyors and found underground tunnels that were probably used by the military as war shelters and also found traces of steel ropes on nearby trees, usually used to transport heavy boxes.

The Amber Chamber is a unique 18th-century masterpiece made by the craftsman Andreas Schlottier of the King of Prussia Frederick I of the amber cut and engraved by the king's son as a gift to the Emperor of Russia Peter I in 1717.

Samson:  ECB: Interest rate cuts boost economic reforms

13:45 - 18/10/2017

European Central Bank President Mario Draghi said Wednesday that cutting interest rates gives euro-zone governments the opportunity to make reforms necessary to boost growth.

"The central bank's research has concluded that there is no convincing evidence that a rate hike could lead to further reforms," ​​Draghi was quoted as saying by Reuters.

"In fact, the opposite is true. Downgrade interest rates are boosting reforms because they lead to a better macro-economic environment," he said. "The fiscal policy currently in place is conducive to this."

"The euro-zone governments must support pro-business reforms that create economic benefits for all," he said.
