WEDNESDAY CONFERENCE CALL DESSERT OCTOBER 24, 2018


Frank: If you remember as I told you family, the only thing I want to say to you, every time I meet with you is we’re waiting for Article 2. And by the way I like to play around, I like to laugh. I like being a jokester. I like jocularity. But in this case, this evening, right now,

I’m going to take on a somber mood. Maybe it’s to respect you a little more. Or maybe I should say to offer you a little bit more respect.

Because, this is a very serious situation, in my opinion. And on top of that, the Internet does not realize it. The Internet is not talking about it. The Internet is not aware of it. Some may be, because they come and copy-and-paste us.

Walkingstick today, made a post… actually it was Samson, our Newshound that made a post today. It was post # 148. This is yesterday’s thread (10/23/2018) for those who are members with us. If you’re not a member you should go to KTFAlways.com. Stands for Keep The Faith Always. And be a member.

Yesterday’s thread, post # 148. Samson put it up, and it says the following:

The Central Bank of Iraq confirms the continuation of their reformist approach to achieve financial and monetary stability.

Oh, by the way, before I go into this any deeper, I wish to thank God, then Walkingstick and our Teams, Our admins that scurried around today and did everything they could to prepare YOU for this dessert tonight.

I also want to thank Iobey. Walkingstick asked her to make notes. That’s another reason why I’m taking on a slower and and more somber approach, so she can take notes… for you.

I also want to thank one of our Admins, Aggiedad, Randy. Because he noticed that one of our members, by the name of Sunkissed, took the conversation between me and Walkingstick on post # 202 of yesterday’s thread.

Well, he talked to me. One of the rules we have inside of our Forum, is that when Walkingstick and I are talking, do not interfere until I talk to all of you. And Post # 202, Walkingstick is talking directly to me, off of the post that Samson brought us, Post # 148, that says that the Central Bank of Iraq confirms the continuation of their reformist approach to achieve financial and monetary stability. And he says at the bottom:

Frank… per our conversation, and this is just a SNIPPET, Iraqi Central Bank march over the last 4 years proved. And he says: It was tried. It was tested. And it was successful.

Ladies and Gentlemen, this whole conference call is in my opinion, but:

Tried… is one zero. Tested… is another zero. Successful.. is the last, third zero.

And he says: Tried, tested, successful = REER

Now when I saw that, it felt like releasing a caged animal. It really did in my soul and my spirit. As a matter of fact have you noticed that I’ve been posting lately: You don’t know what you don’t know, Family. In fact, I just posted that yesterday. But you DO know, what you DO know. The things that we have shared with you.

When Sunkissed, took the acronym REER, and defined it for you, gave you the definition on post # 283, in fact, I don’t even know, because Randy, one of my Admins, he removed it right away. Why? Because you are not to interfere in the conversations between me and Walkingstick.

But, Walkingstick had noticed that it had been taken down. And he communicated with us and he says “Why was it taken down?” And I said because that was our conversation, you and I have a standard rule, no one is to interfere. No one is to intercede. No one is to add or subtract, when you and I are talking.

And he said “No. Leave it up there. Go ahead and let them know. Because if I type it in there I want them to start to understand.” And then he said “I’ll call you in an hour and I’ll help you to understand.” I said “Sir. I understand very clearly.”

Family, that wasn’t me being cocky or anything. You know why I understood what he wanted to explain to me REER? Because I already walked through it with him. All of last summer. Every step that we took together was evolving and showing itself to be true - exactly as he was explaining it to us.

I became rather excited to be honest with you… last summer. Because what they were doing family, was testing. Remember what I told you. Here, let me help you once again, so you can refresh your memory, and it will catch you up to what…

Well… I may as well say it. REER.. it sounds like “rear.” Maybe I better stick with REER. lol. I promised to be serious, so let’s get back to being serious.

How did I start with you? Tried. Tested. Successful. One zero. Two zeros. Three zeros.

Do you remember back in June, July, and August of last year when I was telling you, even though the Internet was mocking us, we held strong. You held strong with us and your belief and trust in us, as we go to God with it first.

I told you, in the month of June, my friends firm had been selected by the Government of Iraq, to participate in some “second set of books.” Remember? And in June of last year, we also saw some exchange sites that showed different exchange numbers, which caused a lot of people to scratch their heads.

And we told you, “It’s not a coincidence, but the best I can tell you is that Walkingstick’s firm was selected by the government of Iraq to start a testing, to try to pay these citizens of Iraq - you know the 500 - 600 employees that my friend’s company has. Not at a Program Rate, but at 1:1. Remember that?

On a “second set of books” I said. Remember that?

Calculated in dinars I said… not… in dollars. Remember that?

And we saw the evidence of the first zero causing a fluctuation in the exchange rate of the Iraqi Dinar in the first week of June. Remember that?

You can see all the articles if you want in our Final Article thread… so that you can remember that.

So.. I want to thank Aggiedad for following-through, and obeying our rules and regulations. And I also want to thank Sunkissed. Walkingstick wants to thank Sunkissed.

In this situation we saw what she was trying to do and that is to help; in the same manner that Walkingstick also wants to salute MilitiaMan. Walkingstick, by the way, wants you all to know that he reads your posts when he can. He doesn’t read them all the time. And on top of that, he cannot answer everybody, because of the environment around him. Does that make sense?

This article that came out, that Walkingstick referred to, and drew my attention, and said “Frank. REER” Do you remember? Tested and Tried, and Successful.

So June was the lifting of the first zero on a second set of books where my friend’s firm was selected along with other businesses in Iraq.. and for that matter, other banks to work on a second set of books. Let’s try and test this and see if it can become successful!

In June the first zero was lifted.

What happened in July? A second zero was lifted, and we told you so. And you saw the exchange sites, again with the… wait a minute, where is the 1180? Where is the 1184? Where is the Program Rate? What are these numbers?

June. One zero.

July. Two zeros.

August. The third zero.

You saw the evidence again. On these exchange sites. And we told you the second set of books was calculated in dinars, at 1:1, and turned into the GOI because this. is. what. they. were. meant. to. do.

Today you see an article again: “The Central Bank of Iraq confirms - CONFIRMS! Wait a minute do you have to test this? No. Do you have to try this? No! You’re confirming? Yes! Why? Because we were successful. At what?

“The Central Bank of Iraq confirms the continuation of their reformist approach to achieve financial and monetary stability. The next phase is….”

And it goes on… and it goes on…. and it goes on…….

Mainly aimed at the achieving of the monetary and financial stability through its program and strategic aim at maintaining stability in the exchange of their local currency, against other foreign currencies, and building sufficient foreign currency reserves….

All issued and standard by the International Monetary Fund as they work with…

We know that. Stop it.

Inside of this article, WHY is the KEY of what happened in June, July, and August

KTFA Family, the article tells you that in the last 4 years, the government along with the CBI, has been testing many companies in Iraq, like for example Walkingstick’s firm, many banks in Iraq, many merchant accounts, many businesses, they’ve been testing them with a Dual Exchange Rate. Not only with our currency in the way we pay our people, but with our budget. We’ve been doing this for the last four years.

And you know what? Something came out of it. REER!!!

You’re admitting this? We’re confirming it.

REER… is a change!… within the country’s currency, with denomination or, with the exchange rate of their currency. A change! Yes.

Ladies and Gentlemen, this article has cut itself short in giving you the details of the REER success. It is like a mime. You know those guys who don’t talk and they use their hands and their face to express themselves. The CBI mime, has given us all the signs without saying the word… REER
.
The CBI told the FAB 4: BIS, World Bank, IMF, UST, Donald Trump, and many many other firms, not just Walkingstick’s, that were selected, back in the summer of last year, and many banks - not just in Iraq - that we told you.. many banks around the WORLD that were in this meeting, that already knew, what what about to be told to them by the CBI: The definition of REER.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Article 2 will define REER in depth.

Yes, you saw the 3-zeros being tested and lifted on multiple sites. Remember? They’re now giving you the report, we did this for four years. We just told you about it last year.

You don’t know what you don’t know… until you know what you know.

This article cuts very short. All it does not say is the acronym REER. But the whole article, is nothing more than a self-confession, a definition of the Tried, Tested, and Success of running their country at 1:1.

Samson Post #148The Central Bank of Iraq confirms the continuation of his reformist approach to achieve financial and monetary stability

24th October, 2018 by Samir Nusairi

The Board of Directors of the Central Bank today issued an important statement in which it noted the continuation of its efforts during the past years to achieve economic steadfastness in the circumstances of Iraq and faced economic and security shocks. Stressing that the central bank will work with care and dedication in order to achieve stability in the financial system and monetary system in the next phase and maintain the achievements achieved during the economic and financial crisis in support of the national economy as a state bank.

As the central banks in the countries Mainly aimed at achieving monetary and financial stability through its programs and strategy aimed at maintaining stability in the exchange of their local currencies against other foreign currencies and building sufficient foreign reserves in accordance with international standards issued by the International Monetary Fund

The banks are evaluated according to other criteria related to the challenges and economic shocks Control of stable rates of inflation and interest rates, the application of compliance regulations and rules, and the fight against money laundering and terrorism financing. The Iraqi Central Bank's march over the last four years proved that it is progressing steadily to achieve the above objectives.

This proves that Iraq has emerged from the monitoring and follow-up area to the regular follow-up area every two years, like the rest of the world's banks according to FATF. The central bank has managed to maintain the dinar exchange rate against the US dollar during this year despite the economic and security challenges

From an economic and analytical perspective of the state of stability in the exchange rate and from a neutral and transparent point of view, we note that the high independence of the Central Bank and the availability of foreign reserves at an average and for determining the adequacy to cover the cash mass in circulation and to cover imports according to the standards of the International Monetary Fund as the foreign reserve is fully insured and occupies Iraq ranks fourth in the Arab world and is currently about 60 billion dollars and grows day after day in addition to the strength and recovery of the Iraqi dinar and deal with wisdom and responsibility and independence by the Central Bank will prevent the impact of international conditions

and On the other hand, there is a surplus in the budget because of the high oil prices, which will enable the government to pay the internal debt. All this represents the real guarantees for the success of the economic reform platform of the next government and the decree in the axis Third

Economic and banking consultant LINK

Walkingstick has been teaching us that for the past 4 years have used a “tool exchange rate” with a redenomination in mind, when they calculated the budgets.

Every year when they did this we smiled. But we couldn’t tell you. So we decided to start to tell you last summer, because the evidence was FOUND on many counter-sites.

A coincidence? What did I tell ya? I do not believe in coincidences.

Tried, tested, and now successful by utilizing the exchange rate of 1:1 within the last four years.

REER stands for Real Effective Exchange Rate.

REER means equalizing, bringing forth, the REAL EFFECTIVE Exchange Rate, of a countries currency; which by the way, is not a Program Rate.

Walkingstick, his friends, his bank owners, his firm, his employees were selected to do this test and trial run, on a second set of books, that the GOI, using not the Program Rate, but a 1:1 rate, testing in the process of the REER.

Walkingstick’s firm, employees, banks, were part of this testing, without the program rate; instead with a 1:1 on a second set of books.

In my opinion, all these Iraqi banks that were selected to be “in the know” that’s why they knew what they were going to be told at that meeting.

In my opinion, all these Iraqi banks that were selected to be “in the know” of the REER testing, are the ones who, right now, are talking to the Fantastic-4. And many, many more entities at these meetings. Why?

Because these banks, that ran with the testing, and made it successful, are now reporting to them, to say:

All systems are “GO” on our Monetary Reform. The environment: We have maintained the stability in the exchange rate, in foreign currencies.

As students, you know what all that means don’t you? They can’t use the American Dollar. They changed the auctions. They’ve controlled and have more stability from Terrorism, from Iran.

REER is what we are being told by this article that has been accomplished, calculated, and has become successful, without saying the acronym REER. But they will very soon.

The importance of measuring a REER of any countries currency is because it is weighed —- the importance of REER, is because it is weighed —- against a basket of currency! Taking into account many factors like inflation to change their exchange rate. It’s not done for giggles.

By the way, did you see me post to Walkingstick? Ey-ey-ey-ey-ey! I said I would define it to you. On Monday’s Conference Call, two of the bank owners were at my friend’s home and they were in another room, listening to our conference call. Now they had to speak English, by the way, when any business is done.

When things are done, business-wise in Iraq, it has to be done in English. So they understand English. They understood what we were saying on Monday, but, you remember at the very end when we lost 600- 700 people and I said, “Okay.. I want to tell you something else.” Remember that?

And I came in and I said I have more answers but I don’t have the questions. Remember that? And I played Carnac right? I put the envelope to my head, and I said “Here’s the answer.” And I read off the answer. And then I asked Delta “Go ahead… What do you think that the question was?” So when Iobey typed in what the question was, right after the answer, these two guys in Walkingstick’s home, we heard them and they were like “Ey-ey-ey-ey-ey!” He said “What the heck is going on? What’s the commotion?”

He gets up and runs over the other room, where their computers were. And he says “What’s wrong?” And they’re pointing at the computers of Iobey’s chat and there’s like “Ey-ey-ey-ey-ey!” We didn’t say that! He was laughing so hard he couldn’t catch his breath and so was I. Because he had to stop them… “No-no-no-no. It’s okay. Sit down. They’re just projecting what the questions were.” “Ohhhhh!” It was just too funny.

So once again, the Monetary Reform of the IQD, of the Central Bank of Iraq, is no secret. It’s no secret. They are willing. And they are telling anyone who is willing to llisten, that the CBI, that Iraq, is soon to change their exchange rate.

Are you listening? By the way, do you think that anyone is listening? In my opinion Family, even the man on the Moon is listening.

When you look, and you study what happened today at Wall Street, to our Stock Markets today. They crashed. It was really serious. You’re student of this investment, that’s going to help a lot of people. Because right now Donald Trump is fighting with the Federal Reserves.

I never-ever thought I would see a President to have that kind of inner strength. To take us away from Fiat, to have our currency actually backed-up by our assets!

Did you see the way Oil went up dramatically, and I told you it would, remember? It will touch about $100.00. What is it a little over $80.00 right now. Why?

Well, do you see the citizens in Alaska? They have a windfall right now. Their state, their economy is exploding. They have more than 60% increase of their oil rights, from their land, because the price of oil went up. And I told you, you don’t even see it at the gas price at the pump do you?

The Feds don’t wanna go away. And you can’t blame them. My gosh! I mean the Pharisees didn’t want to give up their sugar-money did they? Do you think that the Federal Reserve wants to give up this easy money? No. And I believe that Donald Trump says “Enough of that. We will pay our own bills. We will take care of ourselves. We will even pay you.”

And what does the Federal Reserve do? They come back with a counter move. And they kick the economy between the legs. They hike up the interest rate. Well, that doesn’t help does it?

Tell me housing industry? Are you selling houses?

Many of the tariffs that President Trump has enacted are going into affect now. That could be part of the scare. Part of the instability of our markets. And it could be because of the rate increase from the Federal Reserve. It could be a lot of things.

But in my opinion (and by the way, I shouldn’t be giving you this kind of advice) in my opinion, if you are involved in the Stock Market. If you are right now going through some volatile issues. Don’t panic. Don’t push the panic button.

Apollo 13 did not return back home because the three astronauts went crazy. They returned home, because they stayed focused. And in my opinion, right now for those of you who are suffering through the fall of the Stock Market today: Be strong. And then be stronger. And then get ready to become that much stronger.

I believe it will work itself out. I think it will iron itself out. I believe this severe hiccup — I believe it’s more like heartburn now — will work itself out. There are smart people on Wall Street that will turn their attention to businesses IN America — IN America — that are the foundation of our Americana. They will turn to the stocks that are pillars and strong. And we’ll bounce back, in my opinion.

But in the meantime, do you think that they’re listening? I sure went a long way to come back to that point didn’t I?

My friend’s bank firms. They were there. His business people. They were there. Some of his employees. They were there. At this meeting. At this article that you’re reading about.

So Family, as we shared the introduction of the Second Article approaches us each day. With no fear of the reality of the Monetary Reform. We said at the start of this month, that in my opinion, 4-6 weeks later, we might see Article 2.

In my opinion? It seems to be on course.

I have a lot more to share with you. More thoughts about this REER.

And I also want to emphasize, and make sure that people understand this:

This article is not announcing REER. It is the ADMISSION of REER. What is missing is Article 2, that will define it. Very clearly. The way we’ve been telling you, in our opinion.

4 to 6 weeks I told you at the beginning of this month, and if you looked at your notes, and if you look very carefully, but I believe it will be less than three. Yeah, right on course.

So let’s see what these knuckleheads do next week. Oh and by the way, you’re going to see an article that says “Urgent!” Unless I told our Newshounds not to put it up. But if you see it Newshounds, it's fine with me, because I’m about to tell the Family.

The article will say “Urgent! Abadi has been sworn in as the Prime Minister of Iraq.” No, that’s not true. Abadi has not been sworn in as the Prime Minister of Iraq. As a matter of fact today, you will soon read that Mahdi has just assigned 14 Ministers to his Cabinet.

Here’s another thing: According to their Constitution, the way we understand it, Mahdi is right now officially their Prime Minister, because of the 14 Ministers.

I could talk with you another three hours on this meeting. And I told you there would be many more meetings. Each one of them is getting us closer and closer to Article 2.

What is the 'Real Effective Exchange Rate - REER'

The real effective exchange rate (REER) is the weighted average of a country's currency in relation to an index or basket of other major currencies, adjusted for the effects of inflation. The weights are determined by comparing the relative trade balance of a country's currency against each country within the index.

This exchange rate is used to determine an individual country's currency value relative to the other major currencies in the index, such as the U.S. dollar, Japanese yen and the euro

BREAKING DOWN 'Real Effective Exchange Rate - REER'

The real effective exchange rate (REER) is used to measure the value of a specific currency in relation to an average group of major currencies. The REER takes into account any changes in relative prices and shows what can actually be purchased with a currency. This means that the REER is normally trade-weighted.

How the REER Is Measured

The REER is derived by taking a country's Nominal Effective Exchange Rate (NEER) and adjusting it to include price indices and other trends. The REER, then, is essentially a country's NEER after removing price inflation or labor cost inflation. The REER represents the value that an individual consumer pays for an imported good at the consumer level. This rate includes any tariffs and transaction costs associated with importing the good.

Benefits of Analyzing and Using the REER

A country's REER is an important measure when assessing its trade capabilities and current import/export situation.

The REER can be used to measure the equilibrium value of a country's currency, identify the underlying factors of a country's trade flow, look at any changes in international price or cost competition and allocate incentives between tradable and nontradable sectors.

Understanding a country's REER is extremely important when conducting economic analysis and policymaking. Therefore, the World Bank, the Eurostat, the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) and others all publish various REER indicators.

These world institutions combine to provide the public with REER analysis on 113 countries around the globe.

Thanks Sunkissed ... well done.

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

KAPERONI TIDBIT, 26 OCT

Now that the new Iraqi Gov is is place I expect the IMF to meet with the CBI in the near future to discuss monetary policy.  I've always felt this consultation will occur before any significant monetary change.  If you go back and look at last year's Article IV, the IMF made it very clear that the CBI needed to move to Article VIII to send a message to the global investment community that Iraq is open for business.  Slowly we are inching closer to that decision which is positive for Iraq. As well, a change in exchange rate regime from fixed to float will begin to allow the dinar to rise gradually.  And...due to the significance in urgency of this reform we may see this change occur very shortly. Hopefully within a month or two at the latest.

RAYRAT: "US Banks were excited with anticipation of exchange activity possibly this week", 26 OCT

Wednesday activity in Iraq...Abdul Madhi is sworn in as the country's Prime Minister (finally)...14 ministers are also sworn in before Parliament.  News reports indicate that the government of PM Abdul Madhi has become constitutional.  US Banks were excited with anticipation of exchange activity possibly this week (?) Time Will Tell.

THE BIG CALL NOTES, 26 OCT



THE BIG CALL WITH BRUCE THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2018, INTEL ONLY

TRANSCRIBED BY PINKROSES

Bruce:
 Welcome to the Big Call tonight. Let’s go where we are, and what is happening. I said at the top of the show we had a lot of Intel to bring. I am going to try to bring to you what is relative. Let’s first go to Iraq. Now you guys knew they were having an election and appointment their Parliament and their Cabinet. Well, we got word today that Secretary of State


Pompeo called the new Prime Minister of Iraq whom is Abdul-Mahdi to congratulate him. That was the first call this morning early at 6:30am. The next call he received to congratulate him was from President Trump. Then he had a call from President Putin from Russia to congratulate him. Next was President Xi of China, and lastly was President Mnangagwa of Zimbabwe to congratulate him. At least that was 5 that we know called to congratulate the Prime Minister. So what? What does it have to do with it?

Bruce: Well it has to do with we have been waiting on Iraq to announce their Parliament, Cabinet, new Prime Minister, and to put a rate out. We do know there is an in-country rate in Iraq which we believe is at $3.71. Then we will have our in-country rate which will be much higher well over double that we believe. What is interesting about that is with Iraq being complete in everything that they needed to do that takes that portion of the picture out.

Bruce: We know that last night there were very significant exchanges done out of the West coast that got things started so to speak with two things, the USTN and also the idea of a new revalued rate for the Iraqi dinar. Initial exchanges were done and they were done in new USTN. That is how they were paid out and that is really good news. 

Bruce: The most significant piece I heard today was that approximately noon EST all the rates came off the IMF screens except 5 and those 5 were that make up the SDR Basket, the Special Drawing Right Currencies. That would be the USD, the British pound, the Euro, the Chinese Yuan, and the Swiss Franc. Those five were the only ones to stay on the screen of the IMF. Now the rates were supposed to come back up with new rates at 2:3am. You say what is the big deal. Rates up, rates down, whatever. These rates came completely off the screen at noon, and not come back up until 2:30am. The last time that happened was the day before Kuwait revalued their Dinar. Pretty significant for those who remembered the revalued of the Kuwait Dinar. That is a big deal.

Bruce: Beyond that we do have information talking about things happening at various times. We believe to start with that when the Chinese markets open which was pretty much at the time of the start of this call tonight, when they open that the Chinese elders would be able to pull down funds in USTNs, our new currency, for the first time. They had been able to pull down currency in the past, but those had been advances and in USD. These are to be in USTNs, and they were to open their markets around 9 to 9:30pm EST tonight. That is pretty significant. Once that occurred, that would allow for certain groups like the Cores, SKRs and certain others to be funded, to be paid out. All the preliminary activity has gone to where the only thing that needs to happen was that process to occur so they can be paid out tonight or overnight. They should be available and accessible tomorrow. That is really good.

Bruce: There was a procedure that happened yesterday where the Chinese Senior Elders, some call the Grandfather, let his portion of the RV process go to our new Treasury, from our Treasury to HSBC to all the top banks, and then from all the top banks to the Redemption Centers, and Exchange locations throughout the country. There has been a process that requires certain types of computer codes to be received and entered so rates can appear. My understanding the rates were supposed to appear by this morning. I believe they probably did. I do know when they came back off, they should have been about the time the IMF screen cleared about noon. Everybody is looking for the new rates to come back up. That should be about 2:30am.

Bruce: There is other information that was pointing to different times tonight to keep an eye on, and, the best information is we are in that window for things to happen and to begin to roll out in a significant way for us with our universal toll free number. My inclination is to believe that it will be a daytime event. They will want that to go out at a certain way. I am looking forward to be contacted to receive that number. 

Bruce: The gist of this is we are so close we can just about touch it. We have been patient to wait this long, but if we are to look back at what has happened, we see all these puzzle pieces we have put together in this 1000 piece puzzle creating this picture for us. There always seems to be one more document, one more this, one more that, that needs to happen. They have got this far enough where we are sort of at the point of no return. We are sort of beyond that, and we are looking forward now that the USTN have been exchanged here, now we have seen the Government of Iraq has done their thing.

Bruce: We had a picture few days ago of Alok (?) and two other gentlemen standing in a bank holding a plaque of the lower denominations and the fils which are the coins that would be of Iraq acknowledging they have that new currency available out of their ATMS, banks, and shops. 

I can’t tell you for sure if those are out in circulation yet. My thinking is it is extremely close for that to occur if not out already with everything that has happened. To our way of thinking they have done all they were supposed to have done and needed to do. It took awhile, but it got done. That is really good news.

Bruce: I know they have approximately 4 pages of perks or benefits to take a look at when you go in for your exchange. Each particular time slot is set for 2 hours and 15 minutes even though they want us to be completed in the area of 1 hour and 30 minutes to 1 hour and 40 minutes. They kind of got a built in time frame there so they can restock, ready and enter whatever they had on their computer and upload that to the main frame computer that is connected to the super computer in china. All of that needs to be done before they take the next person, and so on. These appointments I said last time you want to get to your appointment no more than 25 minutes prior to your appointment time. I think that is still so you can be called in early and get with the greeter and get up to speed and sort of quicken the process as you move thru it.

Bruce: I think guys, we are set to get started here. I said last Tuesday to keep an eye on the next few days where we thought we be there already. I think that we are even closer than we were yesterday. We are in a really good spot to begin. That is all I can say about it. I am encouraged to know that the rates will come back up on the IMF screens and probably all the bank screens in the 2:30am range. That speaks well for the weekend for us. That is about all I can say about that.

Bruce: Thank you Sue, Pastor Steven, and Bob. Thank you Big Call listeners for being there for us all these Tuesdays and Thursday nights for the last number of years, at least 6 or 7 years total. Thank you everyone who is going to pitch in and help us with our Big Call projects with Rebuild America and Veterans Retreat Network, and we will have other things too. You can look for toll free numbers on our websites: thebigcall.net and bigcalluniverse.com/ You will see the numbers there as long as I can post them which I think I can. I hope so. I will give them out to a couple of sites in the community. Everybody have a great night and thank you again for listening to the Big Call. I appreciate it and God bless you. Hug yourself and go to sleep.

THANK YOU BIG CALL AND BRUCE, HUGSSS

MNT GOAT UPDATE, 26 OCT

Hi Everyone,

I bring you much news today.

JUST IN URGENT LATE Wednesday: The ongoing election saga is finally over!

Abdel-Mahdi is sworn in today as the new prime minister along with 14 of 22 ministers. (did I not tell you they would do a partial cabinet to meet the constitutional deadline, then get the rest of the rejected ministers in place in the coming weeks. Do we learn nothing from past elections? Why so worried? This is how they operate.) 

Now officially .. Adel Abdul Mahdi becomes the new Prime Minister of Iraq.

Legal expert: the government of Abdul Mahdi became constitutional Parliament adjourned until 06 November 2018 Article below is a list of the new cabinet he presented to Parliament today.

{Baghdad: Al Furat News} Legal expert Jamal al-Asadi confirmed that the government of Abdul Mahdi has become constitutional.

Al-Asadi told the {Euphrates News} that "once the swearing-in of ministers becomes Adel Abdul Mahdi, the Prime Minister officially." "The list of 14 ministers met the legal period and Mahdi became prime minister free to form a new government." Even though many ministers left due to disagreement on a nominee, he said "The swearing-in does not require a legal quorum, and officially Abdul-Mahdi became prime minister today," al-Asadi said.

Oh – but wait a second didn’t FAT TNT Tony tell everyone that nothing happened in Wednesday’s session? Didn’t these idiots tell you that they had to wait another 5 days for the next session (next week) to vote on Mahdi? Really? They just told us that the next session is not until Nov 6th. They just told us that they gave confidence on Mahdi. So I guess his intel is not that good after all. 

Seems these idiots in Iraq who keep pumping him with information know less than we get through the news media….lol…lol.. Oh – but he says don’t read the articles just watch what they do….lol…lol… Seems he still can’t read the articles with an open mind and has to have everything spoon fed to him. Did he even pass the first grade reading class? Maybe that’s the problem here.

I want everyone to remember this TNT jerk and what he said. First, he said it had to happen in May. Of course, it did not happen. I could have told you it wouldn’t….I did too. They he strung everyone out through June and kept the momentum of his stupidity through the entire waiting of the sorting and recounting of the vote process. Of course nothing happened…..but the banks said they knew it was going to RV….lol..lol… Well if this idiot would have just listened to the CBI in April, when they told us and the world (in so many words) that they needed “stability” and a “more suitable environment” then maybe he would have saved everyone lots of anticipation and stress over worrying about this event. Again “when the CBI talks I listen”! This is the organization that will trigger the Reinstatement.

Remember the CBI NEVER came out and directly told us they would reinstate or RV the currency after the elections process was over. This was assumed from what they said to us back in April. So no one really knows for sure just how long this might take. So now for some reason this jackass TNT Tony takes this conjecture and makes it that the CBI is going to now RV in October. Oh – but wait first just the president, speaker and prime ministers names have to be announce. Then it moved to they had to be sworn in. Then it moved to the entire government had to be in place. Just more flop-flopping over and over. Does this idiot have any valid intel…ever?

Well Mr. Fat man TNT Tony Renfrow ….. It is now October 26th, there are 14 ministers worn in out of 22 and the new prime minister is also sworn in. Now what? Now what will be you excuse as to what is holding up the reinstatement? Can' t hardly wait to hear this next excuse so I can laugh some more!

So we are counting the hours and days to your statements coming true. Oh – we will NOT let you off the hook so easy this time. You have strung everyone along now for months and months with your intel bullshit. So now will you apologize to everyone for your stupidity when we approach 2019 and still no RV? What will be your new excuse when October then November and December come and goe without an RV?

Will you tell everyone that you were wrong and apologize for bashing Mnt Goat and others if the CBI comes out later in December and EARLY January 2019 and moves to reinstate the dinar?

Of course, this FAT idiot will not apologize to me and to you for stringing us all along. He will be too busy planning his Vegas trip to sucker millions of innocent people into some dinar convention so he can then move to the next level of his swindle.

By the way I use this idiot from TNT only as an example of many of these charlatans using this dinar RV process for personal gain. We know who they are and we are aware of their games.

So now that the government is formed we are already hearing this ridiculous intel from these idiot gurus about US Banks getting excited with anticipation of exchange activity possibly this week. Really? Funny maybe someone should notify the CBI that the rate is about to change… lol …. lol … lol.  Funny how they are always the last to be notified. Oh – I wish and wish these idiots could stop this ridiculous hype about nothing.

More news….

Abadi delivers the presidency of the government to Abdul Mahdi and confirms: proud of the democratic atmosphere

Former and new ministers arrive at the government palace in Baghdad.

Iraq's state-owned Al-Iraqiya television channel reported on Thursday the arrival of former and new ministers of the government palace in Baghdad for the purpose of handing over and receiving.

(Mnt Goat – Well, well it only took them 5 months to get the new government formed and the election process over. This is certainly NOTHING to be proud of. Nothing to brag about. This is 5 months out of a 4 year term just to hold elections? Five months also out of the next phase of reforms 2018-2022. Folks the year is almost over for 2018 so that only leaves 4 years in the next phase. Get it? What the hell?

I call this a dysfunctional democracy at best. Sorry! This is not a stable democracy by any stretch of the imagination. Call it whatever you want and I know they must now somehow convince the world this mess was all done in the name of “democracy”. But we still wait for the three VP to be announced and this will be the TRUE test of democracy and justice in Iraq. Will Nori al-Maliki sleaze bags get back into a position of immunity? Or will they finally get the deserved justice and get rid of him? This guy and his gang are just as bad as Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and despicable, dispicable Maxine Waters in the USA. Again, I am telling everyone there is something very weird happening now with Iraq vs USA. A parallel of events and uncovering conspiracies. It will get worst as time goes on. We are now only at the beginning of this CHANGE. If you are smart you can make the connections with the UN Agenda 21, global warming hoax, chemtrails, bad trade treaties, breakdown of the Christian churches, ignoring immigration laws and only God knows what else these crocked politicians have conjured up to bring down the USA. But it is your country and like the people in Iraq, you don’t have to sit back and let them take total control.)

More news….

RESULTS OF THE RECENT POLL

Okay so during this week I requested yet another poll to see how many are actually tuned into the reality of the dinar in the USA. Seems most are hitting it.

So now I will give you the latest numbers given to me by the reports that were given to the US Treasury on Jan 2018. The reports consist of mandatory forms filled in by currency brokers when they sell the dinar. These forms are sent to the US Treasury when you purchased your currency. There is an address space on the form for the purchaser. So you are being tracked. In order for these online internet or banks to sell these currencies outside of the global currency exchanges, they must adhere to the legal framework set up by the US Treasury.

What is the latest count based on this procedure? 

Not counting gifting or simply giving the currency away to friends or family, the US Treasury has received 2.5 million initial purchases since 2004 when they began tracking the IQD in the USA. Most purchases are under 10 million dinar. A very large holder might hold 100 million. These rumors about many holding billions in dinar is not true since we can see that a billion dinar now would cost you about 1 million US dollars. Who the hell has that kind of money to toe up for decades in a risky investment such as this. I say risky since this currency is not even being currently traded.

So why are some saying nearly 30 million holders have dinar in the US?

This would be about 10% of the entire US population. Really? Do you really think that many Americans know about this investment and have taken to it? Why even listen to this horseshit? These idiots have NEVER been right about anything.

NO! This again is a lie. Even with the gift giving, the UN Treasury projects only maybe 2.75-3 million at best now have IQD in their possession and await the reinstatement and exchange process. So why all the lies?

They need to keep pumping and pumping it. These large numbers are to make people comfortable that this is sound investment and that since they are not alone, it must be legitimate. Yes, I feel it is legitimate but come’on folks why do we need to consistently lie to people, even now about this?

WHEN THE CBI TALKS I LISTEN

Samir Nusairi

The Board of Directors of the Central Bank today issued an important statement in which it noted THE CONTINUATION OF ITS EFFORTS DURING THE PAST YEARS TO ACHIEVE ECONOMIC STEADFASTNESS IN THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF IRAQ AND FACED ECONOMIC AND SECURITY SHOCKS.

Stressing that the central bank WILL WORK WITH CARE AND DEDICATION IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE STABILITY IN THE FINANCIAL SYSTEM AND THE MONETARY SYSTEM IN THE NEXT PHASE and maintain the achievements achieved during the economic and financial crisis in support of the national economy as a state bank.

(Mnt Goat – They keep talking about the “next phase” . So what is this next phase? There has been articles on this phase (I presented to them to you in the past) and according to them it is a 5 year plan (2018-2022) with continuation of the reforms including the monetary reforms, which we know is the project to delete the zeros.)

As the central banks in the countries mainly AIMED AT ACHIEVING MONETARY AND FINANCIAL STABILITY THROUGH ITS PROGRAMS AND STRATEGY AIMED AT MAINTAINING STABILITY IN THE EXCHANGE OF THEIR LOCAL CURRENCIES AGAINST OTHER FOREIGN CURRENCIES And building sufficient foreign reserves in accordance with international standards issued by the International Monetary Fund.

The banks are also evaluated according to other criteria related to the challenges and economic shocks Control of stable rates of inflation and interest rates, the application of compliance regulations and rules, and the fight against money laundering and terrorism financing.

The Iraqi Central Bank’s march over the last four years proved that it is progressing steadily to achieve the above objectives. This proves that Iraq has gone out of the monitoring and follow-up area to the regular follow-up area every two years, like other banks in the world according to FATF.

The central bank has managed to maintain the dinar exchange rate against the US dollar during this year despite the economic and security challenges.

From an economic and analytical perspective of the state of stability in the exchange rate and from a neutral and transparent point of view, we note that the high independence of the Central Bank and the availability of foreign reserves at an average and for determining the adequacy to cover the cash mass in circulation and to cover imports according to the standards of the International Monetary Fund as the foreign reserve is fully insured and occupies Iraq ranks fourth in the Arab world and is currently about 60 billion dollars and grows day after day in addition to the strength and recovery of the Iraqi dinar and deal with wisdom and responsibility and independence by the Central Bank will prevent the impact of international conditions and on the other hand, there is a surplus in the budget because of the high oil prices, which will enable the government to pay the internal debt. All this represents the real guarantees for the success of the economic reform platform of the next government and the decree in the third axis.

PARLIAMENT HAS CONFIRMED PRIME MINISTER ADEL ABDUL MAHDI’S NEW GOVERNMENT WHILE LEAVING KEY CABINET POSTS UNFILLED

Oct. 24, 2018

BAGHDAD — Iraq’s Parliament has confirmed Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi’s new government while leaving key cabinet posts unfilled.

The legislature voted early on Thursday to confirm 14 of Mr. Abdul Mahdi’s 22 cabinet nominees, giving him the ministers he needs to convene his government. But the body failed to vote on important appointments, including ones for the ministers of defense, justice and interior.

Those portfolios will be held by the prime minister until a later date.

Mr. Abdul Mahdi and the 14 confirmed ministers were sworn in immediately after the vote.

Mr. Abdul Mahdi is a former vice president who has previously served as minister of oil and minister of finance. He was named prime minister this month and had 30 days to form a new government or lose his appointment.

The new prime minister is widely seen as a capable technocrat. He is unaffiliated with any party and has a reputation for secularism. The choices for the new Iraqi leadership suggest that the country could finally be edging away from the sect- and party-based system that has driven its politics and fomented bloodshed since the American invasion in 2003.

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”
