MNT GOAT UPDATE, 5 JUNE

June 4, 2018 Mnt Goat News Brief

Hi Everyone,
I bring you much news today.
Not much has changed since last Friday’s Newsletter. We wait for the judiciary to make a ruling on the election fraud and Parliaments legality on
their vote in a Special Session to conduct re-counting of 10% of the votes.
A legal expert for Iraq clarified the timelines for the election complaints and appeals resolutions. See the article in articles section.
We know that the past vote in parliament on allowing any kind of re-count or dismissal of votes from this last elections is unconstitutional because this is not in the jurisdiction of the powers of parliament. Does this seem like a conflict of interest since this is dealing with the election and the election decides who will sit in the new parliament seats?

So now the Judiciary along with the Electoral Commission must review this subject matter and decide on the constitutionality or not. We wait for news.
Once this is decided the Judiciary can move on to the certification of the election results. We need this go forward.
The Sadr Movement claims they will have their largest coalition for the new government completed and the three presidents named by the end of Ramadam.
More news….

The Iraqi Council of Representatives began Saturday afternoon, resuming its extraordinary session and conducted the second reading of the proposed amendment to the Third Law of the elections of the House of Representatives No. 45 of 2013.

Baghdad – Mawazine News

MP of the Liberal Bloc MP Riyad Ghali al-Saadi said on Saturday that the extraordinary parliamentary session held onn Satruday afternoon is unconstitutional, pointing out that the number of attendees did not exceed 30 deputies.
Parliament speaker Salim al-Jubouri announced Saturday that the extraordinary session would be adjourned until next Wednesday after the second reading of the third amendment to the electoral law was completed.
So they got nothing done in this session. They have until July 1st to keep having these “special” sessions.

More news….

02/6/2018
Capitals / follow-up morning
States have huge gold reserves to use when necessary and to support the value of their currency, especially if they want to print more money and pump it into local markets. Gold reserves contribute to currency appreciation and protection from collapse.
Iraq ranked fifth in the world and ranked 37th in the world with reserves of 89.8 tons, 7.8%, followed by Kuwait, which ranked sixth in the Arab world and 39 in the world, with reserves of 79 tons, 8.7%, Egypt is the seventh Arab and 40 global, percent.
The United States ranked first with reserves of 81,33.5 tons, 75 percent of the total reserves, followed by Germany with a total reserves of 3,372.2 tons, or 70.3 percent.

Just so everyone knows - The report showed that Russia ranked sixth in the world in 2018, the size of reserves reached 1,890.8 tons, accounting for 17.6 percent of the total reserves, while China came in seventh place with reserves of 1,842.6 tons, accounting for 2.4 percent of the total reserves.

(Mnt Goat - So what nation is more prepared today to back its currency with gold? Why all this hype and worry about Russia or China becoming outdoing the US dollar as the main media of exchange? It is all hype to by these precious metal dealers to get you to buy their gold, silver and platinum. Get it?
Yes, for all you sceptics, there is an IMF plan to implement a more fair basket of SDR currencies. This is NOT the downgrading of the US Dollar but a more fair spread and distribution of the risk and financial implications should any one of the nations in the basket faulter. So please, please let’s top all this fear and hype about the US Dollar crashing. Educate yourself before going off half-cocked just because some idiot on the internet told you something….)

Jubouri has been trying to pass this amendment to the election law for a very long time. Now he finally has some leverage to get the vote.

The spokesmen of the leader of the Sadrist movement and the stream of wisdom denied any political status of the visit related to the elections and their results as much as an attempt by Hakim and Sadr to strengthen relations between Iraq and Kuwait.

While the first days after the initial results of the elections filled the political leaderships, which conducted a series of negotiations between them to "touch the pulse" in order to reach understandings leading to the formation of the largest bloc, the newspaper "Asharq Al-Awsat" London, an independent politician close to one of the blocs, "The initial results of the meetings of the blocs, whether the meetings between the blocks within the same components, that is the meetings of the Shiite blocs with each other or Sunni or Kurdish with each other or meetings between Shiites and Sunnis or Shiites and Kurds or vice versa almost to one result And Redraw the scene on the basis of consensus and then improved quotas, so to speak, in the sense that it accepts this time to isolate the mass of a component and add another of a component under the pretext of political majority ».

Moreover, PENDING THE DECISION OF THE FEDERAL COURT ON THE CONSTITUTIONALITY OR UNCONSTITUTIONALITY OF THE DECISIONS OF THE PARLIAMENT, THE DEBATE CONTINUES OVER FRAUD AND APPEALS.

But the coalition of Iraqi forces announced its support for the position of the President of the Republic, said in a statement, that THE ELECTORAL COMMISSION HAS MET ITS EFFORTS AND PROCEDURES AND SAID ITS TECHNICAL OPINION IN APPEALS, AND THE BALL NOW IN THE ARENA OF JUSTICE and no doubt, his decisions are Faisal and governance.

Sadr has spoken out and insists that this next govt will give an allocation of “surplus” oil revenues to the people. This could get interesting….)

Baghdad today A spokesman for the leader of the Sadrist movement Moqtada al-Sadr Jaafar al-Mouosawi, the existence of ongoing negotiations between the alliance with other political blocs, noting that the last ten days of the month of Ramadan will be crucial in this regard.
The concept of patriarchal government put forward by Iraqi leader Muqtada al-Sadr means" the just state and the implementation of the law," Moussawi said, adding that it would "take into account everyone without distinction between one province and another without "preferring a category to another.

(Mnt Goat – What is Moussawi saying when he refers to the “last 10 days of Ramadam” in this article? To me it sounds like they know something we don’t? He says, and I quote - "naming the presidents of the republic and the councils of ministers and deputies is left”.

So we know that in Iraq 2018 Ramadam falls between May 17th and June 15th. So there is only about 10 days remaining to Ramadam..right? Today is the 4th in Europe but already 5th in Iraq, and so is he saying in the next ten days (by June 15th) they are targeting to get this elections mess all done and thus get naming the presidents of the republic and the councils of ministers and deputies? I certainly hope so! 😊 July 1st is coming real fast….lol…lol.. the first scheduled session of the NEW Parliament. )

In ending I want everyone to know your constant prayers in the fight against evil (ISIS) in Iraq have worked. God has guided these young men and women on the battle field. Let us all now know that there is a new battle now to fight. A battle to save our homelands from the corrupt politicians who are bent on taking what they want from our current wealth and from future generations without our permission. We must keep praying for the end to the rapid corruption in Iraq and in the United States. We must pray for our leaders when they are being guided by the Holy Spirit. We must stand by them and let them know we are still there to support them, even after the election is over. I have composed a prayer maybe we can all pray today in our own way and until the revaluation of the Iraq dinar occurs.
PRAYER
“For the Iraqi Prime Minister and the President of the United States, that all their cabinet members, and deputies may be anointed by the Holy Spirit to do God’s will and bring the free democracies of the Republic of Iraq and the United States of America to the much-deserved prosperity and abundance thru justice and freedom from oppression and corruption. That they may be a shining example for the rest of the middle east and to rest of the world to follow.
In the name of Jesus Christ our King and Savior, Amen”
