INCREASING INVESTMENTS IN IRAQ! | IQD Dinar Currency Exchange RV

REPOSTED POST BY DAZ, 4 MAY

DAZ:  EXCHANGE THOUGHTS

DC'S COMMENTS ABOUT BANK EXCHANGERS DETERMINATIONS OF YOUR QUALIFYING FOR CONTRACTS ARE GENERAL GUIDANCES....

MY GUT TELLS ME IT WILL GO MUCH DIFFERENTLY FOR MOST..THESE ARE BROAD GENERALIZED STATEMENTS OF GUIDANCE TO HELP MANY OF THOSE THAT REALLY HAVE NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE OR CONCEPT OF BUSINESS OR BANKING.

JUST BE NEAT AND LOOK LIKE YOU MEANT TO GET DRESSED TO MEET SOMEONE THAT YOU WANT TO HAVE A KIND AND  FAVORABLE IMPRESSION OF YOU....ITS JUST A FIRST DATE...NOT THE WEDDING..

IM NOT EVEN GOING TO LET THE IDEA OF SOME "QUALIFYING"  CLOUD MY EXPERIENCE OF THIS THING. THE QUICKEST, EASIEST WAY TO APPEAR OR BE PERCEIVED AS FEARFUL AND LACKING CONFIDENCE IS TO FEEL YOU  ARE BEING JUDGED ON THOSE ATTRIBUTES.

WINNERS DONT DO THAT.

JUST BE A GOOD REPRESENTATION OF YOURSELF...NOT SOMEBODY ELSE...BE KIND, PUT A SMILE ON THE INSIDE...AND OUTSIDE. BE YOURSELF...BEING FAKE WONT GET YOU PAID ANY QUICKER OR BETTER IMO

REALLY FEEL THE SMILE ON THE INSIDE..VISUALIZE IT..PRACTICE IT NOW...IT REALLY DOES CHANGE THE ENERGY IN A MEETING....YOU'LL BE FINE.

I WOULD NOT VOLUNTEER TOO MANY DETAILS, IDEAS OR CONCEPTS GENERALLY,

ALL GREAT IDEAS ALWAYS FIND OPPOSITION. A NEUTRAL CONFIDENT STANCE MAY BE WISE. A FRIEND ONCE TOLD ME...."YOU DONT HAVE TO TELL EVERYBODY EVERYTHING YOU KNOW...AND ITS BETTER THAT YOU DONT".

THEY WOULD RATHER HEAR THAT YOU WANT THEM TO TELL "YOU" ABOUT ALL THE PLANS, POSSIBILITIES, STRUCTURES AND OPPORTUNITES THEY MAY PROVIDE. WM'S DONT WANT TO BE TOLD HOW TO DO THIER JOB OR HOW YOU WANT THEM TO DO IT.

ULTIMATELY THEY TRULY JUST WANT YOU TO HAND THEM THE MONEY TO PLUG INTO THEIR EXISTING SYSTEM. ...THATS THE WAY THEY ARE TRAINED AND WHAT THEY ARE GENERALLY USED TO....AND THATS JUST THE REALITY OF THE THING
.
WE WILL BE CALM, CONFIDENT AND SMILING...THEY WILL BE TIRED, DISORIENTED AND ANXIOUS...SURELY WE CAN MEET IN THE MIDDLE SOMEWHERE.

MAYBE A SIMPLE BUT SOMEWHAT AMBIGUOUS REPLY UPON THEIR INQUIRY MAY BE BEST...
"I PLAN TO MAKE MY IMMEDIATE FAMILY A LITTLE MORE COMFORTABLE AND THEN I WANT TO LEARN HOW TO PROTECT AND GROW MY MONEY FOR GENERATIONS...AND I NEED SOME HELP WITH THAT."

THAT WILL PUSH ALL THE NECESSARY BUTTONS.

AND REMEMBER....IF YOU DONT UNDERSTAND, ASK, IF YOU DONT GET AN ANSWER YOU CAN UNDERSTAND, ASK SOMEBODY ELSE AND,......IF IT DONT FEEL RIGHT...DONT DO IT

Sample Script:

HELLO MR. BANKER, I HAVE IRAQ DINAR, VIETNAM DONG AND ZIMBABWE CURRENCY. I WOULD LIKE TO EXCHANGE...CAN WE DISCUSS THE MOST FAVORABLE RATES AND TERMS, BOTH PUBLIC AND PRIVATE, AVAILABLE FOR EACH?

WELL MR BANKER.....I RECEIVED SOME INFORMATION IN THE PAST THAT THERE MAY BE MORE THAN ONE RATE AVAILABLE DEPENDING ON HOW WE EXECUTED THIS EXCHANGE.

 IF THERE ARE OTHER OPTIONS BESIDE AN EXCHANGE AT THE INTERNATIONAL RATE, I WOULD LIKE TO EXPLORE THOSE TERMS AND REQUIREMENTS IF THEY ARE AVAILABLE TO YOU OR ANY AT THIS BANK.

BE RELAXED, CONFIDENT, FRIENDLY AND PURPOSEFUL

EASY, SIMPLE, HONEST, INFORMED AND DIRECT

PM OK POST, 4 MAY

YOU WANT YOUR OWN BANK-TYPE STORY THAT YOU CAN CHECK OUT TODAY---YOURSELF!!!!!!!!!!!.YOU'VE HEARD ME SPEAK OF MY BEST FRIEND, PASTOR Cxxxx Cxxxxxx, RIGHT?

WELL HE WENT TO KROGER TO SEND SOME MONIES TO LIBERIA TODAY AS HE DOES EACH AND EVERY MONTH AND HAS FOR YEARS. HE LOOKED FOR THE FORMS TO FILL OUT AND THEY HAD BEEN REMOVED.

HE ASKED THE GIRL AT THE COUNTER FOR SOME. SHE IMMEDIATELY TOLD HIM THAT WESTERN UNION IS CLOSED UNTIL MONDAY BECAUSE THEY ARE RE-CALCULATING ALL RATES.

IF YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT WU THEY NEVER EVER CLOSE. THAT IS THEIR BUSINESS. IF YOU DOUBT THIS, I SUGGEST YOU CALL WESTERN UNION THEMSELVES, NOT A WU SUB-CLIENT LIKE KROGER OR A SERVICE STATION BUT WU AT THEIR MAIN OFFICE. THEN YOU SHOULD NOT DOUBT THE RV/GCR.

I WOULD PLACE THE LATEST DATE ON SEEING THIS AS MONDAY.GOOD LUCK. THIS AINT A BANK STORY----MUCH BETTER. GO TO NEAREST KROGER IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE. TRY TO SEND ME $5. WON'T HAPPEN.

P.S. MIGHT WANT TO PASS THIS STORY ON TO YOUR BEST FRIENDS FOR THEIR ENCOURAGEMENT.

"So Anna Von Reitz has a Different Point of View?" by Jo Ana, 4 MAY

5/04/2018 09:21:00 AM 
Entry Submitted by Jo Ana at 9:11 AM EDT on May 4, 2018

Wow! On a site where all or most of us have a view regarding the RV that differs with the majority of humanity, Anna gets slammed! Because her view of an RV is different from most of us here? I have to say to those haters on here.....grow up! Do you enjoy being criticized by others for believing in the RV? I hope not. So then why criticize a woman who has done more to free the slaves (us) than anyone else in our history for having a different opinion than yours? In America, we are supposed to have free speech. I would hope that here on DC, we would allow any person can to say whatever they want to without being ripped to shreds. And basing that ripping on another anonymous alleged human called Virgo Triad??? Good Lord!! Just when I thought I'd already heard the most stupid thing possible. Surprise, surprise.

Look, Anna can't stop an RV with her opinion, and I support her right to have an opinion that differs from mine on this topic. I believe that the Iraq RV is imminent, but since I'm not God I can't guarantee that. As always, time will tell. And in defence of Anna's comments, for those who can read you have discovered that she has a plan to distribute the world assets that now belong to the people of the United States of America (unincorporated) because of her efforts for us, the people. She's merely saying that all those incorporated governments are now debtors to us, and her plan to distribute these assets which now belong to us will take the place of a GCR which would likely never happen because getting 209 people, let alone countries, to agree on anything is nearly impossible. Her plan to provide an essential sum of money monthly for basics to every one of us in the world, and then additional money for investments, etc seems like a pretty appealing idea to me.

And she's right. If our government hasn't cut some kind of deal with Iraq, as suggested by many, our becoming wealthy overnight could very well cause a crisis of inflation. I don't believe that will happen because I believe there is a backdoor deal to prevent that but again, time will tell.

We live in a world with very few heroes. I dearly cherish my few- Anna, Neil Keenan, President Trump, Frank Villa, and our Patrick. Each of these people has a real name, and we can contact any of them. Is that true for Virgo Triad... really?? Anna's given name is Anna Marie Reitzinger, and she uses a version of that name, Anna Von Reitz, as a pen name, I believe, and you can find her email, mailing address, and phone number on her website. Can someone give me Virgo Triad's phone number please? 

it's way past time to learn how to differentiate the sh*t from the shinola. Wise up. 

KAPERONI TIDBIT, 4 MAY

Based on our calculations there are still 42 days that Iraq needs to meet the 2% compliance under the IMF guidelines before they can even consider moving to Article VIII.  …the CBI may be waiting for many things including not only the 2% compliance, the elections to conclude and a government formed, laws to be passed through Parliament and any other number of contracts for investment. In other words, this could still be months away before we see the CBI write the letter to the IMF.  And what I am describing is only the transition to IMF Article VIII, Iraq still needs to choose a new exchange rate regime which is a float and it could take months or even years before the dinar appreciates to a value that we all wish for.

IRAQ: ECONOMIC VICTORY! | Investment Opportunities | IQD Dinar Currency ...

TNT UPDATE , 4 MAY

Celebraterv:  I have been on this ride 7 years. I have never received any positive information from my bank of 25 years,Wells Fargo. I stopped in to do some banking! A personal banker approached to inquire if I needed help.

I asked him if he knew of upcoming currency revaluations. He told me that bankers are advised only to give out info to the public based on the "business need to know" regulations.

Everything can not be openly discussed because of liability to the banking industry.

He gave me the eye and said as an individual on the outside of the bank, he could discuss more freely! He indirectly let me know there was validity to the questions I was asking him!

Great young man-very astute about banking and a born again Christian who wanted to build orphanages in Africa.

Sawdust46:  Just got back from depositing a small check at WF drive though. I asked if they were exchanging foreign currency. The teller said that they do, that ALL of the tellers have received training. I asked how they verify the bills, and she indicated that they do not have a Delerue machine but have photos that come up on their screens to verify bills. The armored truck is still sitting in the parking lot of the old WF office bldg. Banks have to be ready and waiting. Come on RV!

Red:  I remember when you could hardly find a bank that would even admitt knoing about an RV now they will talk to you freely about training and memos, even through a drive in window, we have come a long way baby..

RDflyer12:  Guess we're still in the "Window of Opportunity".....hope the bankers and Iraq are sync'd up this time and will hit the "Hard Target Date" of completion......come on, RV!!

DINAR GURUS UPDATE, 4 MAY

5-4-2018   Newshound Guru Kaperoni   ...I didn't say years in the sense that it won't happen for years. I said it could take years to increase but I fully believe it'll start this year. [reference Guru Kaperoni post 5-4-2018]  I must have said this at least a thousand times there is no overnight RV or are RI.When the Central Bank of Iraq moves to Article VIII to make the dinar internationally convertible and exchangeable and tradable worldwide they will have to leave the Peg and move to a float.  How fast the dinar rises is directly related to the investment that comes into Iraq and its capital account. There is no way to know how fast it will rise until it actually happens and we see what investors do. So first we're looking for 41 more days for compliance, then we're looking for the CBI to make a decision to move to Article VIII and write the letter to the IMF requesting acceptance, then it's the CBI exiting the peg moving to a float. How fast it rises once it begins to float is directly proportional to investment which could be fast or could be months or even longer. This is not an overnight event.

5-4-2018   Intel Guru Bruce
   Iraq did make a rate change that was for the Platform purposes...a Platform rate for the dinar so it could be initiated.  However, that rate has not fully been put out for people to know about it yet.    ...We also know the troops were pulled out...Iraq is basically in charge of their country and they have their sovereignty...and we don’t have to be there to protect anymore.  ​That is a good sign for us. ...I have been told from two sources this could happen anytime meaning any moment now... we are looking very good regardless if we get started right away or we have to wait a few days.  We will see what will happen the next few days.   [post 2 of 2]

5-4-2018   Intel Guru Bruce   ...what I heard since Tuesday...the intention was for us to go Tuesday night overnight to Wednesday morning. That was the intention. What happened was President Trump wanted it to take place, but he wanted it to be obviously safe for us to go and speaking with Pentagon he found he was asked to give it a few more days...we need a little bit more time for security purposes...  ...I have better information than you realize and a lot of the stuff I can’t bring...  So what I am going to tell you is I believe those concerns are being taken care of and I believe we are in a very slight waiting period, but it shouldn’t be too much from what I am hearing...  [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]

5-4-2018   Newshound Guru Kaperoni   Based on our calculations there are still 42 days that Iraq needs to meet the 2% compliance under the IMF guidelines before they can even consider moving to Article VIII.  ...the CBI may be waiting for many things including not only the 2% compliance, the elections to conclude and a government formed, laws to be passed through Parliament and any other number of contracts for investment.   In other words, this could still be months away before we see the CBI write the letter to the IMF.  And what I am describing is only the transition to IMF Article VIII, Iraq still needs to choose a new exchange rate regime which is a float and it could take months or even years before the dinar appreciates to a value that we all wish for.

5-4-2018   Newshound/Intel Guru Mnt Goat   Article:  "IRAQI SUPREME COURT: ARTICLE 140 IS IN FORCE AND MUST BE IMPLEMENTED"   It is NOT yet all a resolved issue.  ...It was predicted, Article 140 was one of the 3 main issues needing solved before any major market shift could happen.Now we see that the Supreme Court of Iraq has finally made their decision and announced it this again this week. But this is not anything new. This is an old article. The important part is now they recognize the fact that just because the period specified in the constitution has passed it did not expire and the Article must be implemented. ...The constitution...also says that to implement it they need a “referendum” which is a law passed in parliament to support the implementation...this is how they implement something legal – THROUGH A LAW.  ...By the way the other 2 issues were the Banking Reforms and HCL {oil and gas law}. Both of these are completed, as we have read many times already.

He pointed out that "the Prime Minister issued new investment decisions, which will provide a suitable ground for investment."  "The political situation will be better after the elections and will not constitute a crisis for the investor," al-Aalak predicted.

The Iraqi parliamentary elections are due to take place on May 12, amid heightened security alert, after the threat of "urging" voters, especially in areas where their fighters were expelled.   LINK

Samson:  US Treasury Secretary: "We have very good talks with China"

 4th May, 2018

US Treasury Secretary said that the trade delegation headed by China to hold talks "very good."

Yesterday, an American delegation led by Treasury Secretary Stephen Menochin began his visit to Beijing, ending a day to discuss economic and trade issues with Vice Premier Liu Hu
"I am very happy to be here," Menuchin told Reuters on Friday in response to a question on whether he expected a development in the talks

"Our great financial team in China is trying to negotiate a fair trade for all," US President Donald Trump wrote in a tweet on social networking site Twitter yesterday

"I look forward to not being far away with the Chinese president in the future," Trump said. "We will always have a good relationship."

China and the United States have entered into a trade dispute last year, with Trump accusing Beijing of commercial manipulation with it, and then decide to apply tariffs on US imports from there

China responded by applying tariffs on imports from the United States

A senior Chinese official before the talks began that it should be held in a manner that guarantees equal and reciprocal benefits , noting that Beijing will not succumb to any trade threats by Washington   LINK

Monetary policy is an important part of macroeconomic policy as monetary policy plays an important and effective role in regulating money supply and controlling cash and credit.

It is through this important role that the monetary authorities, represented by the Central Bank, can have the highest monetary authority, as it achieves a certain vitality according to priorities determined by the economic problem in which the economy suffers. Sometimes monetary authority uses intermediate objectives such as money supply and interest rates to achieve the ultimate goal of stabilizing prices and reducing inflation Which is one of the most important and most important goals pursued by all the economies of the world, including the effects of inflation reflected on the economy and economic growth in general, so the challenge faced by the monetary authorities in Iraq after 2003 is inflation inclusive but pervasive

And must be controlled through the formulation of monetary policies independent of any political decision and the need to be the work of the Central Bank after 2003 mechanisms and tools, including the independence gained by the Central Bank under the new law No. 56 of 2003 Iraq access to foreign exchange resources through revenues export oil , The unification of categories Iraqi currency dinar after the issuance of the new Iraqi currency with international specifications and the use of this currency throughout the country to the north and south.

Frank26:   OH MAN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Batman:  That is a lot of exclamation points...  I really like the paragraph talking about unification of new currency.

Hilton:  Frank and Teams - It just doesn't get any clearer than this.

MilitiaMan:  This is put out to the Public today and again Banks are closed in Iraq.. I see it speaks of the NEW IRAQI Currency. Now lets keep that word NEW into perspective. Frank has been using it for purpose and on purpose, imo. The Final Articles Page 5 is a place to go. Notice with a search for the word in page 5 and that includes FA 81 - # 84 shows the word not once, or twice or three times, but, 110 times. Kinda puts that into perspective. This article about the NEW from the beginning to the end of the PROCESS! imo..~ MM

RV/INTELLIGENCE ALERT - May 4, 2018

(Disclaimer: The following is an overview of the current situation based on rumors/leaks from several sources which may or may not be truthful or accurate.)

The Deep State/Cabal are being forced into a corner through soft disclosure.

They are being kept under constant pressure by the Alliance.

The Alliance's goal is to completely remove the Deep State/Cabal's ability to fight financially and politically.

Syria is the final geopolitical battleground between the Alliance and the Deep State/Cabal.

The Deep State/Cabal's power and funds is near depletion.

The final blow is the enactment of GESARA which is set to occur after the last geopolitical battle is resolved.

Once GESARA is enacted, the new financial system will be announced, the GCR will occur, and military tribunals will begin.

The RV release is a pre-GESARA event and will occur some time around the final outcome of the situation in Syria.

THE BIG CALL NOTES, 4 MAY

THE BIG CALL WITH BRUCE THURSDAY, MAY 03, 2018, INTEL ONLY,
TRANSCRIBED BY PINKROSES

Bruce:  Welcome Everybody to the Big Call tonight. I will start off by saying we had from what I heard since Tuesday the intention was for us to go Tuesday night overnight to Wednesday morning. That was the intention.

What happened was President Trump wanted it to take place, but he wanted it to be obviously safe for us to go and speaking with Pentagon he found he was asked to give it a few more days. Even though the President wanted this to go yesterday just like  we do, better judgment took place to where we need a little bit more time for security purposes which  could be we need more clean up on aisle 3  because there has been a lot of that going on. Some people go Bruce you never talk about the Dark State. You never talk about this or that. I leave that for other people for other calls. I know what is going on. I know what is happening.

​I have better information than you realize and a lot of the stuff I can’t bring on the call. It is simple as that.
Bruce:  So what I am going to tell you is I believe those concerns are being taken care of and I believe we are in a very slight waiting period, but it shouldn’t be too much from what I am hearing. Here is sort of what we are hearing right now. When it comes to Iraq, sometimes we start with Iraq, Iraq did make a rate change that was for the Platform purposes. Nether words they had a Platform rate for the dinar so it could be initiated.

However, that rate has not fully been put out for people to know about it yet. I told you guys a week or two ago, I said I personally don’t think we will see a rate from Iraq until we actually have an 800 number and we are actually on our way. I just think it is going to be a shot gun start to that extend where we won’t even know the official rate.

Where we might know the rate but it won’t be on the website or out where we can see it until we get started. I just have a feeling that is what is going to happen. It is more of a gut feeling than anything else.  That is kind of what is going on.

Bruce:  We know that as of the brand new Visa cars that are designed to take the oil profits from Iraq could be activated on Thursday evening and could be available for funds to be accessed on last Saturday. Iraq has moved along in the way they needed to in that extent. We also know the troops were pulled out. I mentioned that on Tuesday to where Iraq is basically in charge of their country and they have their sovereignty and we don’t want to be there and we don’t have to be there to protect anymore.

​That is a good sign for us. We did have last week from Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday we had 16.2 metric tons of gold reinstated to the United States. Don’t know where it came from.  I think it was gold that we might have we needed for our USN dollar to be gold asset back. That was a move over that 4 day period to the states.

Bruce:  Also the Redemption Centers are still on high alert.  They still are doing conference calls. They are still making slight changes to staffing and to procedures. It is all good. Also the fact the actual rates for the currencies are back on the screens.

The fact they have rates on the screens is very positive and the fact these rates can be not only seen by the Redemption Centers, but the Redemption Center can see all the rates at other banks. Let’s call them Tier 1 banks. I am not sure of the other banks. They can do that. Why is that?  Why is that under the new banking system that they are on that they can see other banks rates for these currencies?  I think it is really cool. 

​It looks to me that is transparency. That is the ability to be competitive by knowing what the other bank rates are. I think that will be beneficial to us even thought I do not know if we are going to need it at the Redemption Centers. It is kind of neat. That is new. We never had that before where Redemption Centers can see the rates of other banks. That is good. I think that is exciting. ​
Bruce:  I know that we were on a 36 hour track to the GCR that started at midnight last night and that would be theoretically over by over at noon tomorrow. I do not know if anything happens then or we get more information or what that means. I think we are looking at we are sort of in that moment and timing where something regarding the releases and we may be talking about releases out west first to take care of SKRs, to take care of groups, to take care of various people like that may go first or it may go first simultaneously with the release of the toll free numbers to me or to whomever besides me if there is anybody.

​That would be fine. In that case it would be a real shot gun start where everybody gets essentially liquidity and paid.  We know one of the very top Humanitarian funding sources has received basically all the funds they need to begin and receive those.  However, they still not able to access those funds and distribute those funds until we go. We don’t know exactly have the timeframe on that, but we know it supposed to be after we get started.

Bruce:  We have heard some very interesting things about upcoming announcements. We have heard that we have a delegation over in China renegotiating our trade program with China in a lot of different areas. Not just from our country but other countries as well are there.

We have a delegation of 14 people from the United States who are working and busy getting this done. Our understanding is that they will complete those negotiations with China on China’s Saturday morning around 10:00 or 10:30 in the morning where they could be wrapping up and on their way back to the United States. Because it is a 13 hour difference between there and the East coast of the United States with daylight savings time in play, and that would be 9:00 to 9:30ish tomorrow night, Friday night.

Bruce:  We also are hearing the possibility of announcements coming from China following the departure of that delegation. I don’t know if we are going to find out about it. I don’t know if it will be online. I do not know.  I don’t know if it will be aired here. I doubt it. However, we could be receiving an announcement about our own here in the United States on Saturday. No time has been given. Don’t know if it will be President Trump. I hope it will be.

It might involve the Treasury Secretary Mnuchin or possibly both or someone else completely. But I would think those two would be the key and possibly getting an announcement to us. What will it be about?  It could very well be returning to the gold standard or calling our currency an asset back currency because we are not going to be solely backed by gold, but I believe by gold, silver, platinum, and other properties and also other assets that can back our currency here in the United States.

Bruce:  My understanding is that after China makes their initial announcement late tomorrow night for us our time, other countries around the world will also make individual announcements to their people. It could literally be around the world global release information about asset back currencies, possibly something regarding peace time, prosperity for all. This type of information I think we are looking for to receive.  I am excited about that taking place, and also thinking because of that we are finally getting down to what should be our time.

Bruce:  When it comes to what we need to remember, I would say the main thing when you go in if you have any Humanitarian Project interest whether it is with what we are doing which is Rebuild America and working with the veterans with the Veteran Retreat Network and other things projects we will do, that what we are going to ask you to do if you are interest and you are interested in something higher than the screen rates when you go in, let them know you have plans for projects with longevity.

You have plans to do something meaningful with plans in terms of infrastructure, and in terms of creating jobs. Maybe it will be relating to new energy. There are so much new technologies that are coming online that we are finding out about.  I hope you caught last Sunday that 60 Minute segment episode. All 3 segments were very powerful. I hope you all caught that. If not grab it on YouTube or DVR from last Sunday. It was very good. All three were very good. 
Bruce:  So you will be looking at technology, creating jobs, and all those things are important to your presentation. The main thing is be confident. Be very positive what it is you plan to do. Don’t try to be somebody you are not. Just be who you are. Your particular person who you are will come across to be genuine, honest and forthright.

Listen, we all are going to be in a position we have never been before. We have never been there. Rehearse it in your mind. Run through the Redemption process through your mind. Run through your presentation of two to three minutes in your mind. Say it out loud if it helps you to feel comfortable with what it is you want to say.  Just let them know what your heart is. If you don’t know what to say ask for help to give you the words that you need to communicate. Be confident. You have so much more knowledge from listening to the Big Call for years than anybody out there.

​Sorry, but I believe it is true. Even though there are other calls out there, and there are some good ones out there, what we try to do is give you the latest, the best, most accurate information we can on what we can share. That is what I tried to do tonight.

Bruce:  This could happen for us. I have been told from two sources this could happen anytime meaning any moment now, but I do know that we may be looking for these announcements that I talked about. I just want you to be aware that we are looking very good regardless if we get started right away or we have to wait a few days. Thank you everybody for listening tonight. I thank you so much. Everybody have a beautiful night. We will talk to you soon.  Get some sleep. We will see what will happen the next few days.

THANK YOU BIG CALL AND BRUCE, HUGSSS

A. May 3 2018 The Big Call, Bruce: Thebigcall.net: 712-770-4016 pin 123456#

1. The intention was for us to go Tues. night May 1, but Trump wanted it safe and it evidently wasn’t. The Pentagon asked him to go a few more days for security purposes.

2. Those concerns were being taken care of and we were in a slight waiting period.

3. Iraq made a Dinar rate change for platform purposes, but the real rate won’t be out until we get the 800#s.

4. Iraqi Qi card funds could be accessed Sat. May 5.
....
5. There has been 15 tons of gold repatriated to the US and moved over the last four days.

6. The actual new rates were on back on the bank screens and could be seen by different banks globally.

7. Starting at midnight last night there was a 36 hour window (to noon EDT Fri. May 4) having to do with the release.

8. Some Humanitarian programs have been given their funds, but cannot access them until the 800#s were released.

9. There was a possibility of an announcement (a return to asset-backed currency?) by China tomorrow night May 4 and another by Trump on Sat. May 5.

10. It could happen at any time, but we may be looking for the above mentioned announcements.

B. May 3 2018 1:39 pm EDT Intel Alert: Operation Disclosure GCR/RV Intel Alert for May 3, 2018 Operation Disclosure

(Disclaimer: The following was an overview of the current situation based on rumors/leaks from several sources which may or may not be truthful or accurate.)

1. Iran was getting ready to announce their gold-standard.

2. The Deep State was fighting back by attempting to blame Iran for the 9/11 attacks. The final battle before the enactment of GESARA was set in the Middle East between Syria, Iran, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Russia and the US.

3. All leaked RV release dates were to be considered as a "heads-up," meaning there was a high chance of the RV occurring on those leaked dates. There was a high chance of the RV occurring yesterday, but it did not occur - reason unknown.

4. The RV was to begin before GESARA. No further RV release dates have been leaked and the timeline for the transition event remained unchanged.

5. Keep watch every night at 11:58 PM EDT to 12:01 AM EDT for the toll-free 800 numbers.

C. May 3 2018 TNT

I think this was unlikely to be released today, but Fri. May 4 and Sat. May 5 were possibilities. First it would come up on Forex and be at the banks the next morning.

************

D. May 3 2018 1:39 pm EDT Intel Update, R104525: R104525 GCR/RV Intel Update 5-3-18

1. The Alliance was now concentrating peace efforts on Syria between Iran, Israel and Saudi Arabia, Syria was the last geopolitical issue to resolve before the promulgation of GESARA

2. On April 30, unprecedented changes were made in the global banking system, where all the banks connected, each bank with the CBI inside and outside Iraq, so that when the CBI hit the switch, it would be a global event. Everyone would go at once and every bank in the world would have the same rate on the screen as soon as those new rates appeared on the Forex.

3. Tuesday, May 1 Iraq effectively revalued. Of course we knew they had a new rate in the country for a while; their Qi cards were active and they had the new Qi Visa cards in addition to the Qi Master cards. Visa cards were tied with Banco Rifadain. These cards were for the portion of oil revenue that citizens received every month on their new Visa card. Saturday was the first day that they would actually receive funds.

4. The system was ready to get the new rates up on FOREX overnight and be in the banks the next day, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.

5. The CBI announced that Iraq now controlled its exchange rate. If it was real, the rates should appear 48 hours before the bank closures.

6. The Alliance also awaited a possible US-imposed interest rate swap to begin trading in Europe - purportedly dated May 7.

G. May 3 2018 12:00 am EDT Fulford Report: "Big Showdown Expected" - Fulford Report - 4.30.18

1. At his meetings with Trump, French President Macron pretended to support the Iranian nuclear accord that supposedly keeps Iran from having nuclear weapons, while in fact the Rothschilds have been providing Iran with both money and nuclear weapons as part of their fanatical efforts to start World War 3, according to Iranian royal family members.

2. The Iranians still have neutron-bomb-tipped missiles that were sent to them by the Bush regime, because the Obama regime refused to accept their return, the sources say.

3. The real battle is not about “preventing Iran from getting nuclear weapons,” as is constantly drummed into us by the Khazarian-controlled corporate media. The real battle is between people who want peace in the Middle East and the religious fanatics trying to start Armageddon.

4. The nuclear attack on Syria is almost certain to be followed by retaliatory attack on either Israel or Saudi Arabia, as the fanatics, fearing for their very lives, try to save themselves by starting a world war.

5. The White Dragon Society and their allies will try to prevent this from escalating into a nuclear inferno by continuing to systematically remove rulers in Israel, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Europe, Russia, the U.S., and elsewhere who are plotting to make this happen.

6. The battle in the U.S. against the Satanists is almost over, even though 25,500 sealed indictments have yet to be acted on. Last week House Speaker Paul Ryan was the latest in a comprehensive list of powerful people who have been purged - George Soros, David Rockefeller, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Barbara Bush, John McCain, etc. are now out of the picture.

7. The Satanists have been trying to create the illusion that this purge is not happening by digitally reviving key people like Clinton, George Soros, and Bill Gates. Last week, for example, they recycled a veiled threat by Gates to kill millions of people with bio-weapons.

However, Satanic leaders like Theresa May in the UK, Macron in France, Benjamin Netanyahu in Israel, and Angela Merkel in Germany are still in place.
8. Removing Macron may be the next move. The National Transition Council’s Supreme Court, which is the only legitimate justice authority in France, has issued an arrest warrant for Macron and his illegitimate government. They hope to enforce it on or around May 5th, according to the Council.

9. The Council notes that apart from making the Satanic hand sign in Washington last week, Macron has placed a Satanic symbol in the presidential office and made his acceptance speech with his head posed just below an eye on the top of a pyramid.

10. In the UK, embattled Prime Minister May lost a major ally last week when Home Secretary Amber Rudd was forced to resign, ostensibly over the mistreatment of immigrants. The Home Secretary in the UK is in charge of the MI5 spy service, and she was really removed because of her involvement in fake gas attack stories in the UK and Syria aimed at provoking war, MI6 sources say. May will soon be removed and replaced with 9/11 and 3/11 truther Jeremy Corbyn, the MI6 sources say.

11. There is also a lot of high-level intrigue going on in Russia, which is being blamed hysterically by the Khazarians for stealing elections, gassing people, etc.

12. The government Internet-controlling agency has started to block many websites and domains under the story of ‘fighting against terrorists. Facebook was controlled by Mark Zuckerberg, grandson of David Rockefeller.

Earnings from coffee regained a slight rise of 0.4 per cent to $1.3 billion despite an 18.1 per cent increase in volume with 691,000 tonnes. Germany and the US continued to be the two largest export markets of Vietnamese coffee, accounting for 25 per cent of the total export value of coffee.

Meanwhile, the export value of cassava went up 3.2 per cent to $376 million but export volume of this products dropped sharply 24.7 per cent to 1.1 million tonnes in the period.
China was still the largest export market of Vietnamese cassava, accounting for 88 per cent of the total exports.

In a stark contrast, rubber and pepper saw their export values down of 21.4 per cent and 33.2 per cent, respectively.

Samson:  Vietnam investors seek spots at DC summit

 4th May, 2018

HCM CITY — More than 30 Vietnamese investors participated in a seminar held on Thursday in HCM City as part of the US Mission to Việt Nam’s ongoing recruitment for the SelectUSA Investment Summit in Washington, DC in June.

The first “Invest in the US” seminar, co-organised by the US Consulate General and AmCham HCM City, described the benefits of investing in the US, home to the largest amount of FDI in the world.

Experts from Baker & McKenzie law firm provided Vietnamese investors with an introduction on the legal and foreign exchange requirements for outbound investment and gave presentations on best practices for establishing operations in the US.

One of the benefits of investing in the US is the variety of opportunities that exist across the country’s 52 states and territories. Representatives from the US states of Idaho, Iowa, and Pennsylvania spoke about investment opportunities in their states.

Fred Burke, senior partner from Baker & McKenzie, highlighted how Việt Nam’s GDP growth was fueling greater interest in investing in the US.

“It is often said that investment follows trade, and Việt Nam’s trade with the US has grown enormously in recent years such that it is one of Việt Nam’s top export markets.  It should come as no surprise, therefore, that Vietnamese firms are looking to invest in the US to support their trade relations and take advantage of opportunities there,” Burke said.

The Investment Summit promotes the US as a premier investment destination and connects qualified foreign firms with US economic development organisations to facilitate business investment and job creation.

Last year’s SelectUSA Investment Summit hosted by US Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross drew the largest crowd yet, with over 3,000 registered participants.

With 28 delegates, Việt Nam had the 12th largest delegation at the summit and the largest delegation from Southeast Asia.   LINK

Samson:  Vietnam : Foreigners allowed to own 49% of commodity exchange

HÀ NỘI — Foreign investors will be allowed to contribute capital to establish commodity exchange in Việt Nam as per Decree No. 51/2018/NĐ-CP, which will be effective from June 1, 2018.

However, their ownership in the exchange should not exceed 49 per cent of its charter capital. Foreign investors are also permitted to trade goods on the commodity exchange as clients and can become members of the exchange (brokers or traders) without ownership restraint.

A brokerage member must have a charter capital of VNĐ5 billion (US$220,000) or more while a trading member must have at least VNĐ75 billion.

The Ministry of Industry and Trade will be responsible for verifying and granting the establishment licence.

The decree, which was issued on April 9, amends and supplements a number of articles of the government’s Decree No. 158/2006/NĐ-CP, dated December 28, 2006, on the conditions for the establishment of commodity exchange.  LINK
