BGG UPDATE, 7 JAN

BGG News Highlights & Comments 1-6-19

BGG [Reference Guru Kaperoni post 1-4-2019 - There is a tweet going around that President Trump has tied some RV to a China trade agreement…False. There is no RV never will be. Best we can hope for is for Iraq to open it’s economy to investors and float the dinar.] 

BGG This is [Kaperoni's] honest opinion. However, this is all it is – an opinion. In fact, it is an opinion not at all validated by documents produced by the CBI and the US Congress.

Iraq Is The Sixth Largest Economic Country In The Middle East

Posted on January 5, 2019 by BGG

Iraq is the sixth largest economic country in the Middle EastSaudi Arabia topped the Middle East as the largest economy in 2018 in terms of gross domestic product (GDP) at current “nominal” prices of $ 784 billion.

According to the analysis of the report unit in the newspaper “Economic” based on the data of the site spectator index and local statistical bodies of countries, Turkey came second with a nominal gross domestic product of $ 713 billion.

In third place came the UAE with a nominal GDP of $ 432 billion, Iran with $ 430 billion and Egypt with $ 249 billion.

Nominal GDP is the market value of the total final goods and services produced in a given country at current market prices.

Saudi Arabia’s gross domestic product (GDP) is expected to grow at current prices by 6.4 percent in 2019 to 3.13 trillion riyals.

By returning to the Middle East nominal GDP ranking in 2018, Iraq ranked sixth with a domestic output of $ 230 billion, followed by Qatar with $ 188 billion, Kuwait with $ 144 billion and Oman with $ 81 billion.

Lebanon ranked $ 10 billion, followed by Libya with $ 43 billion, Jordan with $ 41 billion, Bahrain with $ 39 billion and Yemen with $ 28 billion.

The Middle East is a geopolitical term for a geographical region located in the western part of Asia and part of North Africa. These countries are characterized by the Mediterranean, the Red Sea, the Arabian Sea and the Gulf. This term has been used since the 1950s 19th century AD.

Iran Pushes Iraq To Maintain Trade Without US Dollar

Posted on January 4, 2019
by BGG

Iran is exerting considerable pressure on the Iraqi government to compel it not to abide by the US sanctions that have been imposed on Tehran in order for it to change its policies in the Middle East and abandon its nuclear program. These pressures include using the Iraqi dinar and Iranian rial in the trade exchange between the two countries.

Iraq serves as Iran’s economic lifeline, and Iran has great influence in the political and economic decision-making process. In addition, it uses the Iraqi territory to achieve its interests in the Arab region by supporting fighters loyal to Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria.

This comes despite reservations expressed by some Shiites who recently set the Iranian Consulate ablaze in the city of Basra. During demonstrations against the rampant financial and administrative corruption, protesters chanted slogans calling on Iran to stop its interference in Iraqi affairs.

The Central Bank of Iran is struggling to reach an agreement with Iraq on the use of the dinar or the Iranian rial for trade with Iraq, but Iraq needs the approval of the United States, which is still determined to allow Iraq to only import natural gas from Iran for electricity supply for only a short time.

A source in the Central Bank of Iraq told Al-Monitor on condition of anonymity, “An Iraqi delegation that visited the United States in December and that included executives from the Central Bank of Iraq and several ministries such as the Ministries of Oil and Electricity discussed the exclusion of Iraq from the US sanctions on Iran.”

The source added, “The delegation failed to achieve good results, and it only allowed Iraq to buy Iranian gas for its power plants in return for the dinar. The government pledged to do so and opened an account for the Iranian company at a government bank in the dinar currency.”

According to the same source, “The United States has categorically refused to entirely exclude Iraq from the sanctions and it only allowed natural gas exports from Iran. This exception may include electricity in the coming period because the United States considers Iraq as an economic lifeline for Iran.”

“The United States is working to enable Iraq to exploit gas for the production of electricity, all the while putting an end to dependence on Iranian products and goods,” the source added.

While the US dollar is still used for trade between Iraq and Iran, all transfers are made outside the Iraqi banking sector through foreign brokers or banks in Syria and Lebanon. The dollar is also being smuggled through primitive ways in southern governorates. The vast majority of trade between the two countries is comprised of Iranian exports to Iraq, so Tehran would likely prefer euro or rial-based transactions.

Fadel al-Hamdani, head of the Iraqi-Iranian Chamber of Commerce, told Al-Monitor, “Trade between Iraq and Iran is still ongoing and has not been affected by the US sanctions imposed on Tehran given the ongoing negotiations between Iraq and the United States.”

He added, “Financial transactions are ongoing as per the normal procedures, and it is traders who are behind the changes that may have affected such transactions. If the Iraqi government makes any decisions related to trade with Iran, then the Iraqi private sector will abide by such official decisions.”

Al-Monitor has repeatedly tried to get the Central Bank of Iraq to comment on the use of the dinar and the rial in trade between Iraq and Iran, but to no avail.

However, a high-ranking Iraqi source told Al-Monitor on condition of anonymity, “The Central Bank is committed not to sell the dollar to Iran and rejects any Iranian attempt to do so.” ​

​The source noted, “The Central Bank also refused any cooperation with Iran aimed at converting the Iranian rial to the US dollar,” stressing that the Central Bank of Iraq even refused to sell the dollar to Iraqis wishing to visit Iran in order to dodge any sanctions that could hit the banking sector and financial sanctions.

Following the latest amendment to the draft budget of 2019, which is being discussed by the Iraqi parliament, the Iraqi government reduced allocations for the import of electricity from 424.6 billion dinars (roughly $357 million) to 70 billion dinars (roughly $59 million).

This means that Iraq will no longer buy electricity from Tehran, and this may spark popular protests similar to the ones that erupted in several provinces after Iran cut off its electricity supplies to Iraq last summer.

“Using the dinar in trade with Iran will lead to an increase in the value of the Iraqi dinar due to higher demand, especially considering that the trade exchange between the two countries reached $8 billion in the past eight months,” freelance researcher and writer Ahmed Hathal told Al-Monitor.

He said, “Iraq’s foreign reserves will increase and the Central Bank will be in a better position to defend the dinar in the event of a high demand of the dollar in the future, especially considering that cash reserves cover the country’s needs for more than nine months, thus exceeding the standards set by international financial institutions.”

Hathal added, “Iraq’s foreign trade with Iran requires another currency, namely the dollar. Hence the US rejection it will face.”

Annual Iranian exports to Iraq account for more than 22% of the total Iraqi imports, which exceed $35 billion from several countries. The private sector pays for these Iranian goods either through dollar transfers made by exchange companies or through means not accredited by the Central Bank, or by simply transferring cash by car. It is also very difficult for Iraq to ban the dollar due to the Iranian hegemony over the authorities.

BGG ~ If The United States is so bad, why is Iran DESPERATE to get their hands on our money (USD)?? Suck it up!!

P.S – Why were the J**** in the previous administration in such a big hurry to give these terrorist thugs the kind of cash as they did? I don’t get it.

Further, If I read this correctly – that was the VERY DEFINITION of TREASON.

RAYRAT TIDBIT, 7 JAN

Article: “Iran pushes Iraq to maintain trade without US dollar” Article summary: “Iran is pushing for an agreement with the Iraqi Central Bank to maintain trade in local currencies after dollar-base trade halted following the reimposition of US sanctions.” “Using the dinar in trade with Iran will lead to an increase in the value of the Iraqi dinar due to higher demand, especially considering that the trade exchange between the two countries reached $8 billion in the past eight months,” freelance researcher and writer Ahmed Hathal told Al-Monitor.” For a clear understanding of why things are being held up…it’s what I’ve been telling you for weeks.

Restored Republic via a GCR: Update as of Jan. 7 2019

Compiled 7 Jan. 12:01 am EST by Judy Byington

Below is a summary of information from the Internet. It would be up to the individual reader to do their own research and decide whether or not it was valid. A Special Thank You to Martha for her untiring research efforts in discerning the Truth and to Ken who uncovers unlimited intel on pedophiles to help us Save the Children.

Patience is a Virtue. Having Virtue is a sign of a good moral being. Good moral beings have the power to overcome evil and change the world.


Judy Note: Where we think we are as of Mon. Jan. 7:
....
**************

A. The Plan: was to restore the original Constitution and save the failing economy from the Cabal’s fiat US dollar through a revaluation into a gold/asset-backed US Note via a Global Currency Reset. As of Jan. 2019 the new Quantum Financial System that would make that happen was said to be fully operational, transparent and impenetrable.

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

B. RV/GCR: Zimbabwe Ambassador Brian A. Nichols was in meetings with Trump at the White House Jan. 5. Q Posts on Jan. 5: Executive Order active. Two days ahead of schedule. Jan. 6: Trump at Camp David for meetings with staff on Border Security. Jan. 6 2019 Q Post #4614558: The clock is ticking. Follow the watch (picture of a watch set at 3:15. Q seemed to indicate that Trump would make major announcement on National Security – perhaps Martial Law - at 3:15).

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

C. Indictments: Arrests of Cabal members was essential for the RV/GCR to happen and the reason why Trump has faced several assassination attempts and resistance by a Congress and Press entrenched in the illegal fiat money system Trump was taking down. Since Trump took office over 71,000 sealed indictments against members of the press, Hollywood, but mainly political elites (led by the Clintons) have been filed in federal courts across the nation. The serving of indictments and subsequent arrests were thought to be ongoing since at least when Presidents Bush, Clinton and Obama were believed served their indictments at Bush’s funeral on Dec. 5 2018.

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

D. Indictment Charges: were believed to include Treason, Election Fraud and political elite roles in 9/11, the Fukushima Nuclear Explosion, Benghazi Massacre, mass murder in Haiti and elsewhere, gun and drug running, human trafficking, child exploitation, kidnapping, murder and harvesting victim’s organs for monetary gain; blackmail for certain votes on political issues through recording of pedophilia parties; selling U.S. uranium resources to Russia in exchange for bribes; money laundering; misappropriation and confiscation of US taxpayer monies through use of the illegal and privately owned Federal Reserve, IRS, US Corporation, City of London and Holy See, plus not implementing the freedom from debt GESARA Law signed into law by the US Supreme Court and President Bill Clinton.

Court proceedings would be handled by state Federal Courts, International Courts and Military Tribunals. https://beforeitsnews.com/v3/celebrities/2019/2475563.html

*************
E. IRS/Federal Reserve: On Dec. 13 1913 the Cabal instigated the Federal Reserve Act and formally took over our monetary system, although private individuals had been in control of it since the 1600s. The Federal Reserve Act was never approved by Congress and the IRS Charter ran out in 2012. In Dec. 2018 Q indicated that the Cabal owned IRS and Federal Reserve systems would be taken down by Jan. Both the privately owned Federal Reserve and IRS were determined to be acting illegally when the Supreme Court passed the GESARA Law and it was signed into law by President Clinton.

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

F. NESARA – later known as GESARA was a “US Citizen freedom from debt” ruling by the US Supreme Court that resulted from a Farmers Lawsuit that had muddled through the courts since the 1980s. The case proved that since the 1600s, US Taxpayer dollars had been illegally laundered through what was known by 1871-1900s as the privately owned IRS, Federal Reserve and Cabal corporations of the District of Columbia, City of London and Holy See – with political elites filling their pockets along the way. President Clinton had signed off on NESARA/GESARA, though he, nor any US President since, had implemented the law – until Donald Trump. When Trump finally implemented GESARA Law the Federal Reserve and IRS would officially be defunct.

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

G. Martial Law: Last Dec. the US Military announced that after Christmas it may be invoking a temporary Emergency Martial Law. At a Jan. 4 Press Conference Trump said: “I’m considering declaring a national emergency to fund the Wall.” President Trump already had the power to declare Martial Law. On March 6, 2018 Trump announced: "In accordance with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing for one year the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13288." Q Post #4614558 on Jan. 5 indicated that Trump may declare Martial Law from Camp David on Sun. Jan. 6around 3 pm EST. He was expected to use the Presidential Emergency Broadcast System through cell phone, email and regular media outlet notification.

H. Military Tribunals: There were over 71,000 indictments filed in federal courts last year that were about to be unsealed and acted upon. The indictments would be handled by state federal courts, international courts, or litigated through Military Tribunals. The US government closed down on Dec. 22, with no end in sight, while at the same time several political elites including former US Presidents Bush, Clinton and Obama went missing. At least two FEMA prison barges have arrived at GITMO in preparation for Military Tribunals scheduled to begin in Jan.

***************
I. Stock Market: Last year the Market had the worst year in a decade while the nation experienced the highest job numbers. The Stock Market crashed again Jan. 4 and was down 20% from its Oct. 2018 peak. Why? Countries were getting rid of the fiat US dollar and creating their own monetary systems. An expert said: "You're witnessing the entire implosion of the Central Bank system in real time and there's nothing the Central Bank could do about it.”

Could the Market be manipulated? The RV/GCR was dependent on bringing down the fiat dollar of the Fed that was artificially being held up by large Cabal corporations. A deliberate Market manipulation would likely jump the Market up and down as monies released during the Global Currency Reset acted as a cover to eliminate Cabal corporations, along with their old US fiat dollar system. An implosion of the Market would create conditions whereby Trump could announce a return to a gold/asset backed US Note.

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

J. Rumored Schedule:

On Jan. 3 political elites returned Washington, even though at least 1/3 of Congress faced arrest, the government continued it’s third week of shutdown with no end in sight and exposure of election fraud that would nullify their 2016 and 2018 elections.

Jan. 4: It was rumored that the RV/GCR would go at the same time as Martial Law was declared. At a Jan. 4 Press Conference President Trump announced: “I’m considering declaring a national emergency to fund the Wall.”

Jan. 5 Q Posts: Executive Order active. Two days ahead of schedule.

Jan. 6: President Trump at Camp David for meetings with staff about National Security. “I may declare a national emergency dependent on what’s going to happen on the next few days.” 'Anons knew?' Q

Late Jan: Tier 5 Joe Public would start in late Jan.

Jan. 16: Terrorist Alfonso Ulloa was organizing 15,000+ Hondurans and thousands of Mexicans who planned to force their way into the US illegally around Jan. 16 – another reason for Trump to immediately declare Martial Law.

Operation Gladio was building a nationwide secret army of foreign mercenaries, criminals, terrorists and other-soldier-of-fortune wannabes to use the open borders to sneak across terrorists cells who would carry out False Flag terrorist attacks.

April-May 2019: With the amount of voter fraud thought to be validated in the 71,000 indictments, plus verification that George Soros owned the programming to most state voting machines, it was believed that the 2016 and 2018 elections would soon be declared invalid. Announcement of the GESARA Law would also invalidate those 2016 and 2018 elections. GESARA Law outlined that new elections would be held within 90 days of the GESARA Announcement, meaning new elections would likely be held around April-May 2019.

Jan. 5 2019 6:19 pm EST Q Post #4614558
Will POTUS be @ CD (Camp David) tomorrow? (Jan. 6 2019)
[1 year delta] (see below)
Matters of NAT SEC? (National Security)
The clock is ticking.
Follow the watch. (Picture of a watch set at 3:15.)
Q

[1 year delta] was believed to refer to the Delta 4-Heavy Rocket that was launched a year ago by the US government’s National Reconnaissance Office (over surveillance and intelligence gathering satellites). On Jan. 6 2018 a top secret payload was fastened to the top of the Delta with a mission known only by code name NROL-71. It was likely a very high-resolution imaging satellite with an Earth-facing telescope built to collect sharp pictures of strategic sites, battlefields and other targets around the world.

Martha Note: In the video regarding Camp David where the clock was ticking, it seemed the whole premise of the clock was over looked. The clock was set at 3:15, but was laying on it’s side pointing to the 12 position on the clock - the High Noon position. In the movie High Noon this was the time of the final showdown between the bad guy and the sheriff. Can we assume that at 3:15 pm something major, major would happen? The countdown was ticking down - could be Martial Law and/or announcements of Gold Standard, NESARA, GESARA. Your guess was as good as mine.

RV/INTELLIGENCE ALERT, 7 JAN

(Disclaimer: The following is an overview of the current situation based on intelligence leaks received from several sources which may or may not be accurate. Other confirmed sources may also be included in this overview.)

Efforts are being made to have everything completed before the 2019 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos.

A goal has been set for all nations to publicly agree and announce a global financial reset.

The RV is ready to go and could begin at any moment prior to the announcement.

President Trump is holding private (behind closed doors) meetings at Camp David about the situation with the Fed and GITMO.

It is expected that the Fed will be gone before the meeting in Davos.

Military tribunals will begin after the RV and possibly after the meeting in Davos.

Meanwhile, prison barges are transporting captured Cabal agents to GITMO.

Events will now begin to occur at a quickening pace one after the other like falling dominoes.

January is expected to be a month of significant events.

GENYSIS TIDBIT, 7 JAN

Genysis:  While we continue to talk about indictments, FED, IRS, etc.. the RV has already started since weeks, right under "your" nose.

The main paymasters (the 26 core groups) are all liquid, as well as having already benefited from an "advance".

Group 4a is liquid, the funds have been distributed and the accesses authorized since days, even if not for all the receivers.

Group 4b will be processed next week.

The HAR (IQD, bonds, boxes, etc.) is the one that will undergo a change of course, due to the lack of funds. Payments will be deferred, and many contracts will be postponed to "after the money is replenished".

People, the RV is in full swing. The RV course has nothing to do with Iraq, FED, IRS, GITMO, etc. In fact, these are all consequences of the post-RV.

Don961:  World Bank president resigns

21:37 - 07/01/2019

Information / follow up

World Bank President Jim Young Kim has announced he will step down early next February, three years after his term ends.

"It was a great honor to be the president of this wonderful institution, full of enthusiastic and committed individuals dedicated to the task of ending extreme poverty in the world," said Jim Young Kim, in a statement.

"The World Bank's mission is now more important than ever with the growing aspirations of the poor around the world and continues to increase problems such as climate change, epidemics, famine and refugees."
In 2012, under the leadership of Kim and with the support of the Group of 189 Member States of the World Bank, the Foundation set two goals: "Ending extreme poverty by 2030" and "Promoting common prosperity".

World Bank Chief Executive Christalia Gurgaiva is scheduled to serve as interim president from February 1.

Kim is an American of South Korean origin, belongs to the Democratic Party in the United States, and was president of the World Bank in March 2012, with the support of former US President Barack Obama.

Kim was born in Seoul, South Korea, in 1959 and moved to the United States in his fifth year of age.

He received his degree in medicine and anthropology from Harvard University and in 2009 became president of Dartmouth University in New Hampshire. End 25 n   link
