IQD CHAT: NEWS DISCUSSION, 1 FEB

Chattels   How is the reconstruction of Iraq going?

chattels   "Daesh isn't gone. There are sleeper cells and fighters who have merely shaved off their beards. The bigger problem is that 70% of the people in Mosul still support the ideology of Daesh. They may not have a weapon in their hands, but they have the mentality of Daesh."

chattels   The UN's quarterly report on the progress of what it calls "stabilisation", says: "It is broadly agreed that [the] 1.8 million people who have remained displaced will face more challenges to returning to their areas of origin, an understanding that is well demonstrated by the falling rate of return.
"Whether it be because of lack of basic services, security issues or because of fear of possible reprisals, the effort to facilitate the return of these IDPs, and to ensure protracted displacement does not take place, is one that will require a concentrated effort by the international community.

 chattels   "All in all, both completed projects and newly started projects demonstrated the overall gains in stabilisation made during the quarter. The falling return rate, however, is demonstrative of the necessity for continued stabilisation efforts.

"As has been communicated before, it is a reality that without additional funding, [the UN] will not be able to continue [the] stabilisation work that it has been undertaking since 2015."

​chattels   Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi has restructured the Supreme Anti-Corruption Council founded by his predecessor Haider al-Abadi in October 2015.

Abdul Mahdi said Jan. 9 that he would make every effort to allow the council to play a successful role. On Dec. 31, he said he wanted to re-establish the council in order to “take deterrent measures, unite the regulators’ efforts, address corruption and protect public funds.”

chattels   Corruption is a thorny issue in Iraq as it involves the interests of influential parties. This has made anti-corruption efforts into uphill battles for the successive governments that have consistently failed since 2003 to resolve corruption problems despite the presence of the Integrity Commission and other regulatory institutions.

On May 9, Hassan al-Yassiri submitted his resignation as head of the Integrity Commission on the grounds that “the authorities only addressed 15% of the 12,000 corruption cases that the commission had looked into and referred to the judiciary.”

chattels   This inability to fight corruption raises doubts about the new council’s ability to engage in the battle. Also, before examining any corruption issue, the government must start by examining the funds depleted by the three presidencies (the president, the speaker of parliament and the prime minister) as well as the outlandish salaries and allocations spent by them.

Sabah al-Ukaili, a member of parliament for the Sairoon Alliance, told Al-Monitor he was skeptical about the “feasibility of the new council.” He said the council is just another entity with a different name that will further burden the budget, which he said cannot afford new institutions.

“The Integrity Commission and the general inspectors constitute a full-fledged anti-corruption system, and the prime minister is supposed to resort to this system instead of establishing councils that won’t help put an end to corruption. The problem does not lie in the absence of institutions but in the effectiveness of these institutions,” Ukaili said.

chattels   While he expects “the council to fail” because there are “political leaders who are involved in corruption and who will not allow the implementation of any solutions in this regard,” Ukaili said,

“One of the reasons behind the formation of the council is the Abdul Mahdi government’s need to attract financiers who are reluctant to provide funds for the reconstruction of the liberated areas due to the rampant corruption.”

Another reason that prompted Abdul Mahdi to tackle corruption and re-establish the council is the domestic political pressure he has faced about the issue.

On Jan. 3, member of parliament Hamam Tamimi called on the prime minister “to show courage and strength in addressing corruption cases involving former officials.”

He said, “While many arrest warrants have been previously issued against many officials, such warrants remain ineffective due to weak legislation.”

​chattels   Moussa Faraj, a former head of the Integrity Commission, told Al-Monitor, “Fighting corruption in Iraq requires the following: state institutions, rule of law and a determination to confront corruption or an independent and powerful anti-corruption body. But none of these three conditions are currently present.”

“Political chaos and lawlessness have become the name of the game, and the heads of the executive power throughout all governments have disappointed everyone by reneging on their promises to fight corruption. The era of Abdul Mahdi is deemed the weakest,” he added.

****   @Tebow 1-31-2019 Newshound Guru Kaperoni Several article have surfaced the last few days implying Iraq plans to open their economy to the world in the 'next phase' or 'next stage.' I caution those who think that may be within a week or so. It still could be months.

Iraq still has numerous laws to pass or make changes too to invite investment. Parliament is on a break and the next session may not be enough time to pass the needed legislation.

A critical piece of the puzzle is coming up February 10-11. Iraqi Finance 2019 could give us some needed time frames as Iraq continues to transition to a market economy.

IQD RV News Update (RANT# 284)

TNT & KTFA: NEWS DISCUSSION, 1 FEB

TNT:

Harambe:  Bloomberg: Maduro's 20-Ton Pile of Gold Is Stuck in Limbo in a Caracas Vault  

(2/1/19)

With 20 tons of gold stacked up for loading and shipping out of Venezuelan vaults, the mystery surrounding them -- and the saber-rattling they’re sparking -- is intensifying.

The Russian airplane that a Venezuelan lawmaker alleged was in Caracas to spirit the gold away left the country without it. But now a cargo plane has landed from Dubai, triggering a new wave of speculation that the gold is headed there instead.

As Nicolas Maduro, the authoritarian ruler, tries to stave off mounting international pressure to relinquish power, the fate of those gold bars has become a cause of great concern both in Venezuela and abroad. Valued at about $850 million, they are an important source of wealth in a country that has plunged into extreme poverty under Maduro’s leadership.

On Thursday, Marco Rubio, the Florida senator who has helped spearhead the U.S.’s hard-line stance toward the Maduro regime, fired off a tweet calling out the United Arab Emirates’ Noor Capital as the financial firm orchestrating the gold transaction with Venezuelan authorities. Rubio went on to warn the firm that both it and any airline it hires to take the gold away will be subject to U.S. Treasury sanctions.

As of late Thursday, the 20 tons had yet to leave the central bank, according to a person with direct knowledge of the matter. They had, though, been weighed and separated for shipment, the person said. He did not know where the gold might be heading or the nature of the transaction. The cargo plane was still at the airport in Caracas, according to the website Flightradar24.

Multiple calls after business hours to Noor Capital’s Abu Dhabi office weren’t answered. A Venezuelan central bank spokesperson didn’t respond to calls or text messages seeking comment.

Rubio’s warning came a day after National Security Adviser John Bolton sent a similar message to the investing community. “My advice to bankers, brokers, traders, facilitators, and other businesses: don’t deal in gold, oil, or other Venezuelan commodities being stolen from the Venezuelan people by the Maduro mafia,’’ Bolton said in a tweet.

Twenty tons is a lot of gold bars -- almost 1,600 of them. Together, they represent about 10 percent of all the Venezuelan central bank’s foreign reserves. Those assets form a key part of the fierce battle for control of Venezuela’s finances between Maduro and Juan Guaido, the National Assembly leader who is trying to install a transitional government with the support of the U.S. and other countries across the region.

Samson:  Russia and China give up US bonds

1st February, 2019

China and Russia have cut their holdings of US government debt, while Saudi Arabia has left the list of top 10 US bondholders, data released by the US Treasury Department on Thursday showed.

China's holdings of US Treasuries reached $ 1.21 trillion in November, down from $ 1.138 trillion in October.

Still, China remains the largest holder of US Treasury bills and bonds outside the United States, followed by Japan at $ 1,036.6 billion.

Besides China, Russia cut its investment in the bonds last November by $ 1.8 billion to $ 12.8 billion.
This comes as part of a plan to move away from the dollar under Washington's sanctions policy against Moscow, which in April and May reduced its holdings of these bonds from $ 96 billion to $ 15 billion.

Treasuries are a means of raising funds from countries and institutions, repayable by the US government at maturity, which varies by bond. US bonds are attractive for low risk of default, which explains their low interest rates. Interest rates    LINK

Samson:  US, China talks raise oil prices

1st February, 2019

Oil prices rose on Friday, amid hopes of the possibility that the United States and China settle trade differences soon, although data from China reinforced fears of an economic slowdown could reduce fuel demand.

Brent crude futures were $ 61.06 a barrel at 07:55 GMT, up 22 cents, or 0.4 percent above the previous close, Western media reported.

US West Texas Intermediate crude futures were $ 53.86 a barrel, up 7 cents from the previous settlement.

Oil prices were boosted after US President Donald Trump said Thursday he would meet his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping in a bid to hammer out a comprehensive trade deal.

But crude markets were under pressure from a survey conducted on Friday, showing that Chinese factory activity contracted at its fastest pace in nearly three years in January as orders fell, boosting fears of a slowdown in the world's second-largest economy.   LINK

DINAR GURUS UPDATE, 1 FEB

2-1-2019   Newshound/Intel Guru Mnt Goat   Article:  "AYSAN CALLS ON THE CENTRAL BANK TO INCREASE THE SHARE OF MAYSAN OF THE SMALL CURRENCY"   ...this is such a juicy article...more proof that the smaller categories of 250, 500 and 1000 dinars are increasing in demand as being used for petty cash and everyday shopping. So we see the CBI is due to launch a second batch of even yet smaller categories as they said they would do as the market drives it. This is all fantastic news for us.

2-1-2019   Newshound Guru Adam Montana
   Question: Is Iraq going to "lop"?  Iraq has already made strong progress in rebuilding and obtaining international credit. They do not have an emergency situation, like Zimbabwe or Venezuela. In fact, Iraqs international credit is rated across the board as “B grade” and “Stable”.  Iraq has already made tons of progress here. A lop is not going to enhance that. The CBI already controls the currency market. There is no need for further action.  Iraqs most recent inflation was measured at about 2% - almost identical to the United States. We are not talking about Zimbabwe here!  Multiple currencies are used in Iraq, but there are no threats of replacing the Iraqi Dinar...Since 1960, only 71 cases of lopping have occurred...None of those countries are Iraq, have Iraq's resources, have Iraq's potential...Pretty solid evidence that a lop is a pretty low probability event for us here, don't you think? 

2-1-2019   Intel Guru RayRen98   It's Friday.  Looking for an exciting weekend.  If your not chasing the contract rate, remember it gets greater later...  ...It's done!  It's finished!

2-1-2019   Intel Guru Bruce   [via PinkRoses]   Intel really came in strong today [Thursday]. It is still coming in strong...The information we had today is so positive because we see movement and see things happening. We know liquidity is coming, and we know that we are just about at the end of the ride. Some people say we are (48) hours away to the end, some say (72) hours. We do not know exactly when, but we know...some very positive things happened.   ...There are number of currencies, all the ones we know about in the first basket are gold back or asset back.  ...I am going to say I am very encouraged and I very much seeing movement in the direction we want to see it...I am under the understanding we could have some sort of lift off before midnight tonight [Thursday].
 
2-1-2019   Newshound Guru Adam Montana    ...these things are:  1.  RV (ReValue)  2.  Lop (remove some zeros, either from the exchange rate or the denominations)  3.  Nothing.   ...my opinion of our possible outcomes in this situation is this: 79% chance we see a change in the value upwards in the near future. 20% chance they do nothing other than maintain the status quo (for now). And a slight 1% chance of a lop. Personally...I like love those odds, and I'm sticking it out. I'm also preparing for the eventual change in value...  [post 2 of 2]

2-1-2019   Newshound Guru Adam Montana   Question: Is Iraq going to "lop"? In the case of Iraq, one of 3 things is going to happen eventually, with “eventually” being either immediately, next week, or maybe a year from now. There is no “deadline” that they are bound to, nor will there ever be one in the current political and economic climate. Certainly there will be factors that could encourage Iraq to move faster or bide their time, but there is no entity or force on the planet that can force Iraq to make any changes to their monetary policy. Like I said at the start, Iraq will do one of three things...   [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]

Jeffrey639:

Any new RV news?

Wrider22:
Well I was pointing pretty hard at yesterday for the GCR but today may have even better possibilities! Piece of advice...use the word "exchange" when you're at the bank. The term "cashing in" may get you a reduce rate.

Smitty76:
Remember that Tony has always said he likes Friday afternoon after markets close for the RV to roll out

Bap:
Just received info from trusted bank source. This bank source said that all of the managers of the currency exchange centers were in big time meetings today. Told about policies, procedures and everything that they needed to know for the exchanges. They were told to expect a busy weekend.

Sunny:
Frank26 has a ponytail and has said he will not cut it off until we ha​ve had the RV. Delta posted this today: Delta: "WITHIN 2 DAYS ​.........I WILL GET THE PONYTAIL"...rolling-on-the-floor-laughing​-smiley-emoticon_giflaughing-smiley-face_gif……. Delta posted that yesterday.

Tishwash:
Rupiah is still undervalued: Bank Indonesia


Bank Indonesia (BI) Governor Perry Warjiyo has said that under the current exchange rate, the rupiah was still undervalued and could, therefore, further strengthen against the US dollar in the coming days.

“The strengthening rupiah will support the effort to narrow the current account deficit,” Perry said in Jakarta on Wednesday as quoted by kontan.co.id.

The rupiah has stood at between Rp 14,000 and Rp 14,200 per US dollar since earlier this week.

Perry pointed out several factors that would support the rupiah’s appreciations. Firstly, the Fed Fund rate hike is estimated to occur only twice this year, compared to four times last year.

Secondly, investors’ confidence in the Indonesian economy is gradually recovering, as indicated by the significant capital inflow to Indonesia through stocks and government debt papers — reaching Rp 19 trillion (US$1.35 billion) — since early January.

Thirdly, Perry said the Indonesian fundamental economy was also strengthening, indicated by stable economic growth, low inflation rate and the narrowing fiscal deficit in 2018, which was much lower than the deficits in previous years.

The central bank also forecasts a narrowing current account deficit this year, which is estimated to be 2.5 percent of the gross domestic product (GDP) from about 3 percent last year.

Perry also saw a better foreign exchange market mechanism marked by the increase in liquidity.

“It is not only the mechanism in the spot market, but also in the swap market and in DNDF [domestic non-deliverable forward] market that we just launched in November last year,” he added. (bbn) link

BGG HIGHLIGHTS, 1 FEB

Post From Dinar Updates / Dinar Observer Daily

Posted on January 31, 2019

BGG – …IMF Article 8 and UN CHAPTER 7 are completely different issues. UN Chapter 7 was a series of UN sanctions stemming from the Gulf War era… IMF Article 14 is a set of obligations and responsibilities which Iraq has accepted and complied with (monetary policy wise) –

Once they demonstrate they are fully able, they should accept and move on into Article 8 (from Article 14) – which is a different set of responsibilities and obligations. All of which will be done with IMF oversight and guidance.

Kaperoni Posted on January 30, 2019 by The Dinar Observer

Kaperoni – Dinar Guru …UN chapter 7 is different than IMF Article VIII. Iraq is in IMF Article XIV and from there they will move to VIII.

BGG ~ Common Dinar community misunderstanding/misstatement…

Currency365 Posted on January 30, 2019 by The Dinar Observer

Currency365 – Dinar Guru I would love to see something done with the CBI and the rate change before the American troops leave…I don’t want the troops to leave before the rate change…

We made that mistake the first time and we know what happened…if someone can take this back to Donald Trump…we do not want the troops to leave until they have completed the mission by removing the program rate and raising the value…giving them purchasing power and distributing the oil revenues to the citizens…they were supposed to have done that already…they have not held up their part of the bargain…

BGG ~ It is highly unlikely the U.S. troops leave Iraq anytime soon. This is Iraq – not Syria. Just because Sadr rattles once in a while about the U.S. doesn’t mean it’s a reality.

Kaperoni – Dinar Guru Militiaman thinks they may float the dinar…Actually the truth is no RV at all. Not possible.

BGG ~ I’m betting… and this is just a guess on my part. The CBI and Iraq won’t ask MilitiaMan OR “Kaperoni” what they think once the final decision is made to do whatever it is they have planned…

Mountain Goat Posted on January 29, 2019 by The Dinar Observer

Mountain Goat – Dinar Guru Article: “FIVE-POINT PROPOSAL AIMED AT REMOVING FOREIGN FORCES FROM IRAQ” …just remember that it is the Iranian influence who is constantly pushing Iraq to get the US out. …I keep telling everyone that this influence must be gone or no RV.

MNT GOAT UPDATE, 1 FEB


Hi Everyone,

I bring you much news today.

UPDATE ON THE ONGOING ELECTION SAGA

So once again more FAKE news coming from Iraq. It seems there is lots of that these days.

BAGHDAD (Reuters) – The Saron coalition, backed by Sadr’s leader Moqtada al-Sadr, denied on Wednesday his approval to pass the Interior Ministry’s Interior Minister Faleh al-Fayyad as a central bank governor.

The media office of the MP for the coalition, Majida al-Tamimi, said in a statement received / Mawazine News / copy: “We categorically deny the statement by one of the media about the approval of the coalition pass the passing of Fayadh, the construction candidate of the Ministry of Interior, Magda Tamimi, “asserting that” the transfer of a statement fabricated. ”

WE are told we will be waiting until March 5th for the next session of parliament to have a chance to vote on the three missing cabinet members. 
Without an official minister of the Interior it is very hard for investor to flock into Iraq and release their funds for the 2018-2022 reconstruction plan. They are also waiting for a more stable currency and not this bullshit program rate of 8/10 of a penny.

More news….

Not a lot of news this period to report. Mostly the news is about this guy TNT Tony (and other gurus too) and him pumping again some notion of an imminent RV. Again I would not even listen to a word he says, but just in case you support his madness let me set you straight on what is happening.

Okay so this guy TNT Tony is taking everyone for a ride again on his roller coaster for the RV.

So please let me address a couple things –

1) the project to delete the zeros must happen. So has it? How can Iraq survive at a new rate i.e. $4.43 (as Tony says) unless they do something to get new currency of smaller categories out in circulation. I will add that we know that this event could happen simultaneously, just before or just after so I am not so much worried about this even not yet happening. The same applies to the other 2 attempts to RV in January. But I will also add there is absolutely no news from the CBI on these subject matters. They did say they would keep the general public fully informed and that is exactlyw aht they have done so far. So go figure.

2) when the event occurs, they are not going to initiate it in just a couple banks or global exchanges. It will occur all over at the same time or within minutes of each other. This will be a instantaneous global rollout. Anyone telling you otherwise that they are “slowly” rolling this out in any form is a BIG FAT lie!

I quote from his Wednesday TNT conference call – “Tony: RV is today or tomorrow. Codes were released on Monday. The rate is live! Banks are paying out right now! Friday morning the rate is to be International. May not be seen on FOREX till Monday.”

First - Oh – wait a second. Isn’t this the same guy that has been telling us now for over a year that the Iraqi dinar was already international and we are just waiting for the rate to go up. Now he says the rate is to be international on Friday. So now his “committee” friends, which he relies on so much for info, just told him it was not yet international. Who has been correct all along in the past- Mnt Goat or Tony? Again another Tony flip-flop. He doesn’t know what he is talking about is only guessing.

Second - If the rates were already international then they would already be on FOREX as this is the platform for international currencies. There can not be nor would there legally be a delay in moving them out to the exchanges if it has already reinstated. This is the venue to which the rates go live and international. There is no other way to trade except to broadcast the rates and have a service to provide a common standardized platform for traders to go. This is what the currency exchanges do. They provide this service. So all this TNT Tony bullshit about the dinar already “trading” is nothing but more bullshit. Get it? So what the hell is he talking about anyway?

Third -So when can we expect to go to the bank? Why are some already at the bank then if the rate is not yet international? To what basis do the banks use then to determine the rate if its not yet on FOREX? This is a simple question to ask. OH – Tony says they are using the “bank screen” rate. Really? Just so you know once the rate is live, the bank screens take the rate directly from FOREX. They do not “move” it from the “back” screens to the “front” screens. This is so stupid a notion and only shows these idiots do not have a clue as to what they are talking about. The bank screens can not move the rate to the live screens used by the tellers and exchangers. They take if from FOREX directly. Get it?

Fourth - So today is Friday Feb 1st . Where is our RV then? Where are the 800#s? It is all a bunch of lies. Get it? This idiot guru Tony will probably string you along for yet another couple weeks. We have see him do this before.

Fifth – So who this “committee” guy he talks to anyway? Did he ever verify who the hell he really is? I am telling everyone today that this guy is nothing more than an imposter who is feeding TNT Tony bullshit intel. Nothing he has ever said nor will ever say has come true. It is all just fabricated intel to pacify you and string this out.

I quote again from the TNT call on Wednesday 1/30 – “The ZIM is on the screen, they, (the committee members that call him), are saying it's for ZIM 2016 or newer”.

Oh – but weren’t these the same idiots who told him in the first place that the banks are going to take the AA, 2008 and 2009 notes we have as that is all that is in the USA? So why where they so correct back then and not now. How did they flip flop all of a sudden? They will try to convince you it is because of the new Zimbabwe government and they changed their mind and are not going to live up to their past agreement made by the older administration. Really? Is this the real reason for the 180 in the ZIM?

Sixth – I am telling everyone that this ZIM is scam and has been a scam all along. So what they are now telling us (from this so called “committee guy) is that the banks are only going to take the 2016 and newer ZIM notes. Really? Didn’t they know this before? Are they that stupid?

Oh- but when Tony was asked on a call when someone questioned it that these ZIM might be from 2016 or newer he replied NO! Again he pumped the older notes and said he is just repeating what the “committee member” told him to say.

So over the last couple years, Mnt Goat has been trying to help everyone realize this mistake. Did anyone listen? Did anyone want to listen since you were all so hyped up to make trillions off the ZIM. How ridiculously stupid can you get? Really?

So didn’t I come say in my newsletters over and over again and tell everyone this was wrong and so the rates were in fact for the 2016 and newer notes? Am I missing something here?

People you all could have saved yourselves so much grief and misery if you would just have listened to me in the first place. Get it? I told you over and over again not to buy ZIM. This was all just a scam!

So now go look at the other scams I listed on my scam sheet. I have posted it again along with today’s newsletter. Folks you are all being taken for a ride and being scammed by these so called intel gurus.

Since Monday I have talked to my CBI representative and they have no knowledge of pulling the trigger on this RV event.

More news….

From the article itself – 
Economy News _ Baghdad – The Secretary-General of the Council of Ministers, Mahdi al-Alaq, on Wednesday, the reason for delaying the move to improve the investment environment and the private sector in Iraq.

TNT Tony claims that this statement is evidence that the delay in the RV was caused by a delay in the move to improve the investment environment and the private sector in Iraq. This is true and it is still the delay.

But what is wrong with Tony’s statement on his Wednesday call?

1. First of all he is assuming this is talking specifically about the currency reform and why it was delayed. This is NOT the case. The article does not even mention currency reform and if it did it would then talk about the project to delete the zeros. So the sane assumption would be that this article is merely talking about not getting the response from the private sector they had hoped for to rebuild their economy. Yes, indirectly this is related to now having a tradable currency.

2. This is NOT the Alaq from the CBI so this news is NOT coming form the CBI as TNT Tony said it was. The CBI governor is Ali al-Allaq not Mahdi al-Alaq.

All this jackass has to do is read the article. He can read can’t he? It also says NOTHING about currency reform or the project to delete the zeros.

AYSAN CALLS ON THE CENTRAL BANK TO INCREASE THE SHARE OF MAYSAN OF THE SMALL CURRENCY

(Mnt Goat – more proof that the smaller categories of 250, 500 and 1000 dinars are increasing in demand as being used for petty cash and everyday shopping. So we see the CBI is due to launch a second batch of even yet smaller categories as they said they would do as the market drives it. This is all fantastic news for us.)

(Independent) / Ali Qasim al-Kaabi / .. A member of the provincial council of Maysan, and the Chairman of the Committee of Trade and Finance Laila Hamid Al-Dhahibawi Iraqi Central Bank Branch Basra need to solve the problem of small currency in Maysan.

“This demand came after many complaints from citizens about the absence of a crack in the market,” Al-Dhahibawi told Al-Mustaqbal newspaper. “This led to an increase in the citizen’s suffering in dealing with the market for the importance of this currency.

She stressed that the bank should increase the share of Maysan province of small currency.

(Mnt Goat – this is such a juicy article and it was missed and overlooked by many.)

100-DAY COUNTDOWN FOR IRAQI GOVERNMENT “CRITICAL”

Baghdad/ Iraq TradeLink: At the beginning of February next, the 100-day grace period given to the Iraqi government will end.

This PERIOD WAS GIVEN TO EVALUATE THE WORK OF THE GOVERNMENTAL PROGRAMS. Though this period is going to end, the government of Premier Adel Abdul Mehdi is still in conflict for three remaining ministries; namely defence, interior and justice.

On the other hand, doubts were raised on some other ministries, though having the confidence of the Iraqi parliament, for connections with ex-Baath party and Da’ish (ISIS) organization.

Politicians believe that the 100-day grace period will end and more weeks to be added, or even months before completing the new Iraqi government.

(Mnt Goat – in the midst of all the election turmoil I do not think they are going to do a “no confidence” vote on Mahdi not can they afford to do it. So relax Mahdi is not going anywhere. He is their man….lol..lol… )

THE NEXT STAGE WILL WITNESS GREAT ECONOMIC OPENNESS ON THE REGIONAL AND GLOBAL ENVIRONMENT

(Baghdad: Al-Furat News) Prime Minister, Adel Abdul-Mahdi, said that “the next stage will witness great economic openness to the regional and global environment.”

(Mnt Goat – How many times must we hear this statement from them? When the hell is this next stage going to occur? I thought they wanted to reconstruct the country with their new plan 2018-2022. So a year already has gone by and so my hope of this “new stage” is just a said by dreamers and political rhetoric for the news media. Nothing ever comes of it. Sorry! When people told me back in 2006 that I was crazy investing in the Iraqi dinar they said that Iraq will never amount to anything. I am beginning to believe that they are right. It just one big pool of corruption and stealing. Probably worst off than even when Saddam Hussein was in power.)

A statement by the Office of the First Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives received the agency {Euphrates News} a copy of Abdul Mahdi said during a meeting with First Deputy Speaker Hassan al-Kaabi, that “within two days will be implemented an important agreement with Jordan on the export of oil and open the port of Trebil, and this will provide thousands of opportunities Work in transport and service delivery “.

The follow-up deputies to their control in the ministries and the need to facilitate the mechanism of entry to the headquarters of government. ”

“The three legislative, executive and judicial authorities should cooperate and coordinate among themselves to draw up mechanisms capable of treating poor performance in the previous stage, which resulted in accumulations in all sectors affecting the type of services provided to citizens,” al-Kaabi said.

The two sides discussed “the most important items that were added to the law of the general budget 2019, and is likely to arrive in less than two days to the government and the presidency of the Republic for ratification and start to apply.”

Al-Kaabi said that “most of the items added are subject to the availability of financial wealth.”

The two sides touched on the importance of holding provincial council elections at the time it was agreed with the Independent Electoral Commission on 16/11/2019, and the urgent need to amend the law of the Council elections. ”

Also discussed the security situation of the capital Baghdad and the positive step taken by the government to reopen all regions and lifting concrete barriers, and the need for attention to entrances Baghdad , which suffers from severe congestion and lack of interest.

Among Kaabi, said that “there are additional allocations in the budget for this file, the next stage will witness positive changes Iraqi citizen, and is also expected neighborhood that matters more project than 20 thousand families Baghdadi. ”

He called al – Kaabi government intervention by issuing instructions concerning the Pfsh field in front of university graduates is appointed as lecturers in the university evening study, and prevent professors morning study always in the evening, as will provide more than 20 thousand jobs for the owners of the certificates, and customize pieces land for staff, as well as the government’s call to pay attention to the Iraqi scientific complex as a front of the country’s scientific facades. ”

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. The major war with ISIS has been over since Dec 2017. Let us all know that there is a new battle now to fight. A battle to save our homelands from the corrupt politicians and secret societies 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 and enslavement of people 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 reinstatement 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”

THE BIG CALL NOTES, 1 FEB

THE BIG CALL WITH BRUCE THURSDAY, JANUARY 31, 2019, INTEL ONLY
TRANSCRIBED BY PINKROSES

Bruce: Welcome Everybody to the Big Call tonight. Intel really came in strong today. It is still coming in strong. I will tell you this. We did get confirmation that the Tier 3s were completed. We got that mid morning that the Tier 3s were all finished, all paid out. The stagnation period that was of 12 to 18 hours was completed.

That allowed them to go forward onto Tier 4As. Those are the groups that are based out west that we have talked about in the past, core groups, various group, you know what I am talking about, Fines and Penalties, all of that. That was started today and that is in the first phrase of payout now as of this afternoon. That is really positive.

That is showing that those particular accounts and I just got word they have completed those, they have paid out those. That should be available to see in their accounts. I do not know if they are available now, but should be available by tomorrow, and I would think it would have the ability to fund tomorrow. There seems to be a little settling in that period even those transactions are ledger to ledger transfers which are in the same bank.
....
​Bruce: There is always a discussion about 800 #s. There are 800 #s that certain people in these groups, the actual group members will receive from their group leader. Those are different numbers than the (3) numbers I will receive for the Internet Group at large. I think I have tried to make that clear, but it may not be clear.

A lot of people have read on posts or get something on a call that says 800 #s are coming out tonight, let say. They do not even know what numbers they are talking about. There is no description. We are talking about Group leaders numbers, and those #s for those groups, and you know what I talking about, out west. Those emails will contain 800 #s for those group participants.

Bruce: Now we in the Internet Group that are not part of that west coast number of groups are a separate animal. That is why we are Tier 4B. Those guys are Tier 4A. Some of them have additional exchanges to be done. That is why they will get an 800 # sent to them by way of an email or possibly a text.

My numbers are coming by phone to me directly out of Atlanta. That is between HSBC and AIIB, and that is how I am going to receive the information that I am honored to pass on to the Internet Group, or the so called Informed. So make that distinction right now, Big Call listeners, in your mind. Many of you are part of the groups that are based out west, but most of you are not, and most of you are part of the Internet Group which is the Group I am honored enough to speak to thru the Big Call twice a week for the last (8) years.

Bruce: Also, I am honored enough to be the one to receive the toll free #s as I call them to put those out to the community of the Internet Group at large. That is a long way to say what it is I think and hope to say to clarify the situation. Why was I chosen? Let’s just call it consistency and the strength of the Big Call team. I am honored by it. I am excited by it.

I think it is really cool and I look forward to bring you those #s and put them out not only on our two web sites which are: thebigcall.net and also bigcalluniverse.com and also on (2) other places that I know that I won’t say yet. You will find out. This thing will go viral I am sure less than (10) minutes once those #s go out. Do not worry about it. Do not sweat. I can’t say when they are coming. I do not know.

Bruce: The information we had today is so positive because we see movement and see things happening. We know liquidity is coming, and we know that we are just about at the end of the ride. Some people say we are (48) hours away to the end, some say (72) hours. We do not know exactly when, but we know that for example, some very positive things happened.

Today, we understand thru the IMF the USTN which by the way our new currency, our new dollar, United States Treasury Note. That is what is written on top of the note. That is why Bruce calls it United States Treasury Note or USTN as opposed to USN. That is what we used to call it. It is important to know it is not a Federal Reserve note anymore. It is a United States Treasury note. That is why we call it USTN. Those were from my understanding is were traded as live today.
Bruce: Realize we talked about this Tuesday that the Zimbabwe dollar is going to be which is also gold back like our dollar is, will be traded live exchangeable, tradable starting at 4:30 am EST tomorrow on February 1st. Now Zimbabwe is gold back, China is gold back, Russia is gold back, we are gold back, Iraq is gold back.

There are number of currencies, all the ones we know about in the first basket are gold back or asset back. Our dollar, USTN as we know it, is asset back and a certain percentage over 40% is gold back. That is going to make a big difference on precious metals pretty soon, guys. You are going to see them go up. Watch the prices for gold, silver, platinum. Watch the prices go up after the President makes the fact we are back on the Gold Standard. Just a little something to keep an eye on.

Bruce: Now when will the President announce the Gold Standard? We thought it could even come out as early as tonight possibly by the Emergency Alert System, EAS, possibly. We heard rumors of that effect, but I tell you one thing if it was me, I would hold it until the State of Union Address which is going to be Tuesday, February 5th.

What else is Tuesday, February 5th? How about the start of the Chinese New Year, a celebration that lasts a month long in China. I think we go to the Year of the Pig. What is cool about that is that is not the only thing that is supposed to be activated on Tuesday, February 5th.

We heard today that we believe the final signature by the President took place today regarding Nesara, which stands for National Economic Security and Recovery Act. That is something we have known about. I have known about it for 9 years maybe. This we believe has had several signatures all along the way, but we believe that will actually go into effect with a 24 hour possible delay which would be on February 6th, but it should go on February 5th.

Bruce: Guess what? That is the day of the State of the Union Address that President Trump will make. Could that be something that is announced during the State of the Union Address or would it simply be put as a new Economic System? I do not know. I think that is incredibly powerful and would make an important part of that speech.

So we got the possibility of the return of the gold standard, the USTN money being announced, the mentioned of Nesara being announced possibly as a new economic system. Nobody knows what Nesara is but us, and we barely know what it is. We know what it is going to do and the benefits of it. It is going to be great.
Bruce: What else is going on? Don’t you think pretty much everything is wrapped up as far as Venezuela is concerned? Yes, I think so. That would be a great thing to discuss too. I do not know that he would mention the fact that the Federal Reserve and the IRS are being rolled into the Treasury.

I do not know he would bring that up. It could be a positive. I see it as a positive. You know what else is huge? I tell you what is huge. What about a Chinese trade deal with the United States? Yes, that ought to be a done deal by February 5th if not sooner. You realize that (6) different things the President can bring up which all of it he helped to maintain..

Look, how about the number of completion which is (7) What about the possibility of a discussion, a strong discussion about a barrier on our Southern border. I hope that is another thing he will discuss and I hope everyone agrees too because it will make a difference. So there are seven things we can look for some aspect of during the speech. I did not write the speech, I am not going to write it, but if anyone from the Administration is listening I hope they got that point that they can bring to the President.

Bruce: What else is going on? I think it is so big that we know we are so close for this to come down. When will the toll free #s come out? Will it be a daytime event for us? Will it be a daytime event for China? I do not know. We are basically 12 hours as oppose to when china starts. Things tend to happen at night. I am under the understanding we could have some sort of lift off before midnight tonight. We know that some people that have done some exchanges will be made liquid shortly after midnight tonight. Things are definitely happening that are new, that are great. We know that Tier 3s are out of the way. Tier 4s are out of the way. Guess who is next? That is right us, Tier 4B.

Bruce: I am going to say I am very encouraged and I very much seeing movement in the direction we want to see it. There is probably more I am forgetting to bring. I really feeling you get the jest of this. You get the fact. I am not going to talk about more projects or what you take to the Redemption Centers. You have heard that. You have heard it for years now. I am going to clarify it by one thing. When you call the toll free #s that you get from my web sites, possible an email from bigcalluniverse.com. If you have registered you will get an email with the number in that. That will be the email that you receive from our website.
Bruce: When you call to set your appointment, you will tell them that you have Zimbabwe if you have Zim and the other currencies you have. When you tell them that you have Zim if you do, then you tell them the zip code where you wish to do your redemption and exchange of other currencies.

They will direct you by a phone exchange transfer to that Redemption Center, the one you are going to go to in your zip code. Or they will give you another phone # to call to direct you to a Tier 1 Bank or Redemption Center in that zip code. So yes, you will be directed completely to Redemption Center by using that number. Remember there is going to be one number for the United States, one for Canada, and one for Mexico. I should have all three and will be all three in an email as well as on both web sites.

Bruce: So will you be directed to your Redemption Center when you call in? Yes. They will do it by transferring your call to that Redemption Center from the Call Center. It is a two part thing. Or if they cannot transfer it the way the number is set up where your zip code is, they will give you another number to call to set it up at that Tier 1 Bank or Redemption Center in your zip code. That is how it is going to work.

It is set up with six different zones inside the Continent of the United States. One number will get to a main Call Center and they will take it from there. That is something I think needed clarification and I hope I did that without confusing anybody. It is going to be a pretty simple process. Just have that zip code in mind where you want to exchange. Say you live in California but you want to exchange somewhere else, you will give them the zip code for the somewhere else or any number of ways you can vary that.

Bruce: I am excited because we are getting to the end of the line. I thought for a long time February 1st could be important for us. I know China wanted this to be started by today. In some ways it has started by today primarily by the Tier 4As. Maybe we are not far behind. May be will get a true shot gun start. I am glad everybody came tonight to listen. Hopefully the word will get out.

Thank you, Pinkroses, for a beautiful transcription job that you do and everybody that listens by way of the replay. Thank you for that. Guys I think we are right there where we need to be for everything to come thru for us here very shortly. Thank you everybody for tuning in so faithfully.

We will be in touch with you by email for those who have registered by email on bigcalluniverse.com. We will let you know about the projects, future pod casts, and we will stay in touch that way. This is assuming this is our last official prior to the blessing Big Call call.

Thank you everybody. Thank you team.. Thank you Sue, Pastor Steven, Bob, and Big Call listeners all over this globe. No matter how you are getting the call we appreciate you. Thank you and we look forward to partnering with you with our projects in the near future. Good night Everybody and have a beautiful night. Good bye.
