AKM IMRAN UPDATE, 20 MARCH

AKM IMRAN:..everything looks good. On television, they announced stage four of the economic reforms. There are celebrations while the UN folks are in town, both for Da’ash and the economic reform. They announced it in the mosques and on the radio that there is a special celebration tonight. The Council of ministers, Federation Council and their military are expecting this right now. They have started to change over to the rate of $3.91 on the Qi cards, to contractors, past payments, payments to provinces, to widows and orphans and everyday people in the northern and southern provinces. They are now starting that in Baghdad. They are saying on television that the completion of economic reform will be finished in the next day or so... We are not betting the farm on this, but that is what they are saying... Abadi and Shabibi have an idea of what they want to do, but are feeling their way forward, and it’s in their hands to choose. We are very, very close. Everyone in Iraq is ready for stage four, which is us. The US banks are ready for this to go down at any moment... Everyone in the world just waiting for the big man to pull the trigger.

DINAR GURUS UPDATE, 20 MARCH

3-20-2015   Intel Guru DC  [via Adept1] Everything looks really good.  The summary is simple...we don’t know the exact time;  we are hanging off the edge but not falling. Everyone is waiting.  Iraq is ready...they are still on the fourth stage of the economic reform. The majority of Qi  cards have been adjusted from $3.58 to $3.91.  They did have a celebration about beating Da’ash and how that group is eroding;  they are expecting to have more parities this weekend, too.  In the USA, the Fed, bankers, UST, etc., have all been on lockdown all week.  The systems were live on Wednesday and Thursday for hours at a time.  They were exchanging a few people, one at a time, to make sure the systems were working correctly.  That has been going on for a week, and full on since Wednesday afternoon, in the US and throughout the world.  The banks are geared up again for as early as this evening and this weekend.  The US and the rest of the world is on super-duper high alert all week, and they anticipate this going down at any time.  We are just waiting for Shabibi and Abadi to push the button. 

3-20-2015  Newshound Guru Breitling  ...The note count IS the dinar.  Where people get confused is when they say that Iraq has 95 trillion dinar…that's its country's value.  That's it's total value.  It's the M0, M1, M2 and M3 reports and they break it up into the different parts…you have the commodities, the short term deposits, the long term deposits, you have the oil, you have the foreign currency reserve and then they add up how much it's worth…they DON'T have 95 trillion dinar…what they are is WORTH 95 trillion dinar and the reserve is worth in U.S. dollars 80 Billion.  But what represents all this wealth?  What was the last report we got from the CBI?  4 Billion notes…I don't know exactly how many dinar that represents but remember…the hight of the note count was 9 billion notes that represented 30 trillion dinar.  And they said they were going to get it down 70%.  So it's a classic mistake…  [Post 1of 2 stay tuned for the rest of the story]

3-20-2015   Intel/Newshound Guru Backdoc   WHEN THINGS LOOK THE WORST, THEY ARE THE BEST!  CLEARLY, THERE IS A FOCUS ON SECURITY AS WE SEE!  JUST HOW FAR ALONG WE ARE WE MAY NOT EXACTLY KNOW!  THE MORE WE SEE ON THE FACTS WITH THURSDAYS ISX SESSION I AM HIGHLY SUSPICIOUS WHEN I SEE A SESSION CLOSE DOWN FOR THE DAY AND LATER WE SEE A 1000% CHANGE ON THE INDEXES' VALUE WITH TRADING CLOSED FOR THE DAY!  TIME WILL WRITE THE HISTORY ON THIS ISSUE OF COURSE!  ONE HAS TO WONDER IF THAT CHANGE IS SIMPLY A VALUE CHANGE IF ZEROS WERE REMOVED. THE NEW VALUE WOULD BE REFLECTED BY THIS INCREASE DIFFERENCE!  WE SIMPLY NEED TO WAIT TILL THE MARKET RE-OPENS FOR THE ANSWER!  WILL THE MARKET RE-OPEN ON SUNDAY?  IF NOT AND WE HAVEN'T SEEN AN INTERNATIONAL RATE THE ODDS INCREASE MY THOUGHT COULD BE RIGHT!  TIME WILL TELL. 

3-20-2015   Newshound Guru Adam Montana   [I still do not see how Iraq can ever RV at any rate that most of us would like to see due to approximately 30-40 trillion dollars in circulation.  That is an almost astronomical number...  I...wish they really were taking money out of circulation with these auctions but no one really seems to know the true story there.] The rate: I don't know what rate you are referring to, but if it's over 1:1 I simply don't think that will happen regardless of how much is or isn't in circulation. But to address the "amount in circulation" issue, that is controlled by the CBI and when they want to pull money out of circulation, they will. When they want to RV, they will. 

3-20-2015  Newshsound Guru American Contractor  This year, the Central Bank has two goals.  Both were initially reported in the media in 2004.  First one being, the deletion of the zeros and the second, restructuring the category of the banknotes.  You will see the Central Bank remove banknotes from circulation with a window for execution.  More than likely, they will once again, follow a 60 day window of exchange, just like they did for the fifty dinar banknotes.  You will also see new categories being introduced like the 50k and the 100k banknotes. The Central Bank will definitely be restructuring their current banknote categories like the 250, 500, 1000, 10,000, 25,000. [Post 2 of 2]

3-20-2015  Newshound Guru American Contractor  …they printed approximately one trillion of the 50 dinar banknotes.  A small amount compared to the 68 trillion in circulation.  The current Central Bank reports outlined how the money supply has increased in January 2015 by 4 trillion dinars.  The delete the zeros project or the printing of new Iraqi dinar currency has not started and will not start until the green light is given by the Government. The Central Bank has to have authorization from the Iraqi parliament to print the new categories of the Iraqi dinar currency.  Recently, the Central Bank stopped the currency auctions because it was decreasing the foreign currency reserves. We know this because Hoshyar Zebari, Iraq Minister of Finance stated on February 27, “Iraqi Central Bank’s reserves of hard currency (USD) fell to $68 billion which decreased 12.5% or $9.7 billion.  This year, the Central Bank has two goals…[Post 1 of 2 stay tuned for the rest of the story…]

3-20-2015   Newshound Guru tlm724   Article:  "The high value of trading during the current week sessions of the Iraqi market for securities"   Quote:  "...announced the Iraq Stock Exchange, on Thursday, a rise in the value of the trading sessions during the week, reaching (8.906) trillion dinars, compared with the market value last week (7.981) trillion dinars, an increase of 11%."   There could be an issue with the ISX post from yesterday. Appears to be an 11% not 1100 % increase...someone must have forgotten the decimal point lol still great to see gains. Their site is still showing that 1100% but it also has NOT been updated so that makes sense. 

3-20-2015   Newshound Guru OOTW   Article quote:  "Kurdistan region received $420 million from the budget of Baghdad dues, according to the announcement, Finance Minister in the federal government, Hoshyar Zebari. He said Zebari's remarks, told Reuters on Thursday that such payments mean that the parties are committed to the agreement of oil."  wow...so...the last [article] i saw stated they were going to pay 250 million and now this?  woah!  everyone we please need to be on the lookout for announcements showing the people celebrating over this - that's when we know we're good.

3-20-2015   Newshound Guru Millionday    [what does that mean for the RV?]  I WISH I HAD THE EXACT ANSWER FOR YOU...BUT WITHOUT THE MARKET REPORT OF WHAT IMPACT THIS HAD TO THE CURRENCY MARKET AND THE GLOBAL MARKET I DONT KNOW YET.  I HAVE TO SAY THE MISTAKE IF THAT IS WHAT IT IS VERY INTERESTING...IF NOTHING ELSE -- OF COURSE US AS LOGICAL PEOPLE HAVE TO LOOK MORE BEFORE WE CAN STATE ANY POSITIVE CHANGE OR IMPACT ETC...WE CAN NOT GET EXCITED ETC WITH ONE DAY WITH NO NEWS OF SUCH A HUGE CHANGE ETC. -- THIS HOWEVER VERY INTERESTING...   [post 2 of 2]

3-20-2015   Newshound Guru Millionday  THE ISX...ANYONE SEE IT?  [yes and there are mixed reviews on that - some "in the know" say it's a glitch.  check the market reports and you'll see that yesterday was just a normal day and this is a mistake.]  GLITCH WITH A MAJOR STOCK MARKET?  HERE IS WHAT I SEE.  Market Summary General index 928.35Change 852.98 % Change 1,131.72% Value traded 1,938,899,339 Shares traded 2,035,424,172.  THE CHANGE IN THE ISX IS OVER 1100%.  THIS IS A MAJOR MAJOR CHANGE.  ...THAT HUGE % OF CHANGE IS SOMETHING THAT WILL SHOW SOME TYPE OF NEWS FOR US VERY QUICK.  [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]

3-20-2015  Newshound Guru Breitling  Isn't funny that they just announced from the CBI that they are going to go ahead and start this 3 year process of adding value to their currency and also don't you find it strange that they are going to take their 50 dinar note off and retire it because it's part of reducing the note count process…these guys are actually making things happen. It's very very exciting!

3-20-2015   Newshound Guru Adam Montana   [When is Ramadan?  ...we know once Ramadan takes place everything slows down...Your opinion, with Al-Abadi in place, do you think progress will continued forward once Ramadan arrives, or will we have the normal slow down taking affect and our wait continues into 2016?]  Ramadan is June 17 to July 17 this year.   I don't think we'll make it that far without seeing something major.  Will Ramadan be any different for Parliament under Abadi as opposed to Maliki? I would certainly think so, but "how much" different remains to be seen.

3-20-2015   Intel/Newshound Guru tman23   they have an HCL agreement in large...the devil is in the details...and those details cannot be defined until there is a article 140...which cannot happen without a census...which cannot take place with all the displaced people...so if we need a HCL to have a RV... were a looong ways away.

BACKDOC & AAALLEN153 POSTS, 20 MARCH

3-20-15 Backdoc: [Do you have any suggestions as to how to keep up to date on the VND's progress?] THERE ARE TONS OF ENGLISH BASED NEWS SOURCES FOR THE VND STUDY.

AS I'VE MENTIONED MANY TIMES WE HAVE SEEN ALMOST A MIRROR IMAGE OF PROCESSES GOING ON IN VIETNAM AS WE HAVE SEEN IN IRAQ!

WILL WE SEE A RATE AT OR NEAR THE DINARS' RELEASE?

WE SIMPLY DON'T KNOW FOR SURE.

TO SOME EXTENT WE HAVE SOLID INFORMATION OF THEIR PROCESS AND YET OTHER DETAILS ARE LIKELY BEING KEPT FROM US!

WE KNOW OF THEIR STRONG AND GROWING ECONOMY ALONG WITH THE TRANS PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP.

IN ADDITION WE KNOW OF THEIR STRONG BANKING REFORMS JUST LIKE IRAQ! WE KNOW OF THEIR VAST WEALTH IN GOLD, OIL, AND GAS. ALSO THEY ARE A HUGE FOOD PRODUCER.

THE AREA I FEEL THEY MAY BE HIDING IS HOW MUCH CURRENCY THEY HAVE BEEN ABLE TO PULL IN OVER TIME TO REDUCE ITS NOTE COUNT! I NOTICED THE NEWER BILLS HAVE HIGHER SECURITY FEATURES ON THEM AS WELL! MMM

ANOTHER POINT THAT IS ELUSIVE IS HOW MUCH GOLD THEY ACTUALLY REPORT HAVING.

THE LAST THEY REPORTED IT WAS A 100 TONS. I THINK THIS MAY BE UNDER REPORTED BY NOW! I DO KNOW THE PUBLIC SECTOR USED TO REPORT HAVING 500 TONS! THIS COULD BE PULLED IN IF THEY REALLY WANTED IT AND EXCHANGE FOR DONG.

WITH ARTICLE 4 IN THEIR REAR-VIEW MIRROR IT MAKES SENSE THEY WILL STEP UP IN THE NEAR TERM!

I DOUBT THEY WILL WANT TO WAIT DUE TO THE FACT THAT DINAR INVESTORS MAY WANT TO LOAD UP IF THEY WAIT! LOL

IT'S TOO BAD THEY ARE NOT AS OPEN IN THEIR SOCIETY WITH MONETARY DETAILS. SOMETIMES IN LIFE YOU GET LUCKY IF YOU’RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME IF YOU CATCH MY DRIFT!

WE GO ON SOUND INFORMATION AND FACTS BUT SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO USE INTUITION TO FILL IN THE GAPS WHEN THEY AREN'T GIVEN!!

REMEMBER, TO SOME EXTENT OZ DOES THE SAME THING WHEN THEY OCCASIONALLY SAY, NOT FOR PUBLIC VIEWING! MMMMM DOC 
3-20-15 Aaallen153I normally do not post in chat but yesterday my husband came home and told me that a guy he works with that is involved in the investment world came to him and asked him about Dinar.

They had chatted about it last week and he said he had heard of it but was not invested. Then yesterday he was asking how to get some and told my husband to look him up when he is rich. My husband joked by saying "like Friday" and got "more like Monday" as a response.

SUNNY POST FROM TNT : TONY'S CLIFF NOTES, 20 MARCH

Highlights of Tony's CC.  Updated as call progresses  

INTERNATIONAL:  All of world on lock down and incredibly frustrated this has not happened yet.  Tests run since Wednesday afternoon.   In US live rates still showing on some bank screens.

Live rates throughout the world all week.  

Tony:  Even though we are where we are, I don’t see it happening today.    

Could be this afternoon. . . tonight . . . Sunday morning.  When Baghdad gets paid, we get paid. 

       ISX went up 1100%.   DC: Iraq is about to be one of the richest countries in the world. Amount of business to go on is tremendous. Tony:  Obviously somebody over here told them, we are getting ready to do this.  DC:  Not rocket science

CURRENT WINDOW:  DC: Expecting this at any time . . . banks geared up again for this evening, tonight, all this weekend throughout the world.  Told everyone to be on their toes waiting for it.  Entire world waiting.

DC:  Iraq is ready. Today their Sabbath.  Announced in mosque it would really happen this time. Federation Council, Council of Ministers, Dr. Abadhi’s office telling the people, “Get ready!  Get ready!”  Rumors abundant of when this will be triggered.   TV saying pay attention.  
                                          DC:  As of a week ago they pushed the snowball down the hill.                                                     Don’t believe they can stop it. . . . really difficult to screw it up beyond a few days.
DC’s Bottom Line:  More positive info. . .Don’t know the exact time. Hanging on the edge.  Not connected to anything but not falling.
Tony:  Today is another Friday.  Here, where we shouldn't be.  We’re closer. Asked to be “super sensitive” today.

We say it’s a real mess but they are doing it according to the plan they have laid out. . .  Changing the way they do business . . . at the same time they are giving the money.

Tony:  Don’t go to the banks until we get the official word!!!
BE WARE:  Tony was asked to issue a warning regarding groups.  
Tony, "1.1 billion IQN missing out of one group already. . . There are people out there who's sole purpose is to     get your money in your pocket.  Even if we meet afterwards, you don’t know these people.  You met them on the internet! "

BE VERY CAREFUL WHO YOU SHARE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH!
IRAQ:  Parts of Baghdad are getting paid.  They were told it would be there when they woke up on Thursday.  Tony:  I don’t see it stretching out further. 
  • DC:  Cards are being adjusted upwards from $3.58 to $3.91 as well as past payments that have been due for a decade are getting paid.    

  • Celebrations were held regarding victory of ISIL this last week on Wed.  Did not wake up to reforms on Thursday.    More celebrations planned, but dates for same are unknown.  Memo’s went out yesterday to all government offices to prepare for celebrations again.
  • CBI  
  • Banks  
  • TV/Media still saying they are in the 4th stage of monetary reform.  Same info from Wednesday is still being repeated today.
  • RI Release Timing:  DC:  They are not telling anybody. . . speculating about times, after the market closes, or after Forex closes. . . there is no official time yet.

INTERNATIONAL
  • Contract Pool:  The pool was divided between coalition partners and may have been based on level of involvement, troop commitment.  
  • Rates:  Dinar, International, $3.92,  Dong, $1.56  (contract?)
  • ZIM:  DC said originally only 1,000 people owned ZIM.  Then 5,000 had ZIM and now the number has grown to 10,000 and there are two camps regarding regulating the exchange of it.  Camp “A” wants to let it rip and camp “B” wants to put a limit of 20 million dinars on it and then exchange the balance at “one penny” per note. 
DC:  In my opinion, the banks will not treat you that way.  A bank is going to make 2% off your money, and they would always happier making 2% off 15 million dollars than 2% off one million dollars.  They want to do business with  people who have investment ideas, who present themselves well, properly dressed and respectful.
Tony said since they don’t want him to have it and before he’d exchange it at the bank for a penny, he’d give it away on the street.  That way someone else could exchange it at the International rate and the money would still get into the community.  Tony:  “Not telling anyone to go buy Zimbabwe.”
UNITED STATES:  All the bankers, UST, Federal Reserve, rest of the world on lock down from last Wednesday on.  Heads of banks complained they couldn't do that to them personally, but have had their communications shut down, monitored too. 
Bank Story:  Manager at downtown Houston bank said they would be exchanging dinar and dong on April 20th. Tony thought she meant to say March 20th because that's when it was scheduled for. DC:  Not first time I've heard this.  Some bankers just throwing a time out.  Happen very soon.  Did not lock all these people down since Wednesday. . . throughout the entire world . . . ramp it up to this stage for fun.  Do it for intent and purpose.
  • Gifting letter:  Notarizing?  DC explained notarizing does not make information true or false.  It's the documentation that counts.  The more documentation the better. [daz] http://tntdinar.activeboard.com/t57023513/electronic-gifting-letter/ 
  • Banks: The systems were live on Wednesday and Thursday for hours at a time.   
  •  
  • TNT Events:  Another place to be careful when sharing your personal information. 
  • "THE CALL":  Expected to be short call.  Not to be concerned if you cannot get on the call.  IT WILL BE RECORDED.
  • Groups will be going through in Atlanta and San Francisco.  DC:  If in those locations prepare yourself for a longer wait.
  • Dinar Contract Pool in USA:   DC: We know for a fact, that the contract rate is on a very short fuse, don't know how long. Maybe seven days if it drags on. Be happy if it lasts two.  Pool is 500 billion dinar with CAP on exchanging dinar at contract rate of 20 million dinar.  This is so more people have an opportunity at the contract rate.
  • CONTRACT RATE:  When asked if there would be multiple contract ratesDC replied, YES! and each bank has different criteria for their contract rates.  Assessments will be based on, how people are dressed;  respectful to the process;  do they want to invest; using financial terminology (long term investing, generational wealth, etc.).  Other banks will just offer the first customers the best rate. 
Tony:  The banks will be competitive on the international rates, too. . .  
one penny’s difference could mean a million dollars more or less.
 EXCHANGING:  Be sure to call the 800 numbers as all the currency departments know the rate.  Make your first appointment where the rate is the highest.  One bank has stated they want to be higher than WF but want to be selective about who they will accept as customers.  Expect the rate to fluctuate/change throughout the day.  One bank updates their rates three times a day.   
Expect one of two different process at the bank when exchanging:  
  • With small amounts of currency, 100,000 or less dinar you can expect to be taken into a private room; the dinar will be counted; the amount acknowledged and a rate quoted to you.  You make decision then and will get a receipt, just like any other bank transaction.  They will bag and identify the dinar as yours and ship it overnight to a central counting facility. You will agree to the rate before they ship it off.  DC: Till you have a deal done, don't send it off until you completely understand.  They cannot take your notes.  DC:  That's just theft.
  •  
  • At big exchange centers, like Houston, San Francisco, counting and verification will be done by De la rue machine (or other verification type machine) in a private area; amount acknowledge, rate quoted.  If you agree you'll get a receipt, money bagged and ID'd and shipped off.  Tony:  Is the wealth manager going to raise the rate in a few days?  Nine times out of ten, probably not. 
NEGOTIATING::  Tony says, he thinks most people will accept the rate the bank offers, and go on about their lives.   A great majority only have 100,000 dinar or less.  He said the bank is “not going to offer you extra dollar for 100K.”  Don’t expect a raise in rate for small amounts.
DC:  You can ask them to negotiate a better rate.  The joker is the timeline on the contract rate.  Each bank has different criteria for contract rate.  One wants to beat out WF, but only for people they want to do business with.  Remember, DC does not expect the pool to go more than two days.
CLOSING STATEMENTS: 
DC:  Everything looks phenomenally well.   Iraq told everybody to be ready. Partially paid people in entire regions. US and world banking systems in lock down.  Anticipating this going down at any time.  Waiting on Shabibi and Abadhi to decide when to go.  Lot of speculation on time.  Clearly told, they have not told anybody, Not released the time. That's where it's at. Everybody very excited. Wanted to thank everyone for listening.  Be sure you take a step back and realize what a cool process this has been. Folks high and low, from highest level of government to lowest level involved in this have been generous with their time and volunteered info so Tony and I can talk to you. . . so everybody listen to it.  Change the way this kind of info and wealth shared. . .Think it's the coolest darn thing I've ever been involved with. 
PAM:  Thanks to all of the TNT team as well… we’ll just keep reporting as long as we can…
RAY:  Is this it?  Ready?  Ready?  Enjoy your fantabulous Friday.  We'll hang in hoping it happens before Monday. 

TONY:   Been dragging this out all week.. hearing good news all week. Anticipating it.  Hearing go, go, go.  Do I think it's going to go?  but I thought it would on Wednesday  and Monday too. . . Today better?   Absolutely. . . Everything is good. Could drag it out till Monday or Tuesday. . . every indication is they will not. Told it would be live yesterday morning between 9:30 – 10:pp.  It actually went live .. . only for 3-4 hours, while they made sure it worked. Screens still blinking.
Two stories happened yesterday where people walked in bank to do exchange . . . it was on the screen, but banks said no. They had no authorization even though it was on the screens.  The branch manager wouldn’t even try it.  Said no cuz it didn't make sense to him .. other location said come back tomorrow (today).
We know we are that close and should be happy.  Should be happy.  Unfortunately we have to pay the bills to still be there.  Could it go to Monday or Tuesday?  Yes!  We gotta take care of this site.
The good thing is your this close. Celebrations ordered yesterday. Know they were ordered. Did not get date and time. . . we are this close .. we know they were told to prepare for celebrations.. just don't know the times.
Be ecstatic if I were you. We are suspended in the air. Just don't know when they will let us drop. . .She (bank story lady)  probably wanted to say March 20 not April.  That’s when it was scheduled for.  
I’m  definitely happy.   (DC and Pam, Ray happy) Enjoy the rest of your day, your weekend. If anything happens - I expect it too. Look for a Tweet and a phone call.
That's the jist of the call.  The verbatim transcript is usually out late in the evening or tomorrow am.  Adept has more in depth notes at: http://www.tntdinar.activeboard.com/t59859509/tnt-call-notes-20-mar-2015/  
I've got the champagne chilling and read this somewhere, "True freedom is making choices in your life."

BREAKING NEWS! Another scorned U.S. ally turns to Russia! Saudi Arabia has quietly reached out to arch foe Russia!

LINK - http://www.wnd.com/2015/03/another-scorned-u-s-ally-turns-to-russia/

Saudi Arabia has quietly reached out to arch foe Russia in an attempt to temper Iran’s regional influence and reach a compromise on Tehran’s nuclear program, Middle Eastern defense officials told WND.

The Saudi move already has resulted in the opening of back-door dialogue between the two countries aimed at possibly forging a new alliance, the officials said.

The talks may showcase Saudi desperation in light of the Obama administration’s rapprochement toward Iran, perhaps the House of Saud’s biggest competitor for influence in the Middle East and Persian Gulf.

Already, the shifting U.S. regional alliances have seen Russia’s military relationship with long-time U.S. ally Egypt grow ever closer.

TNT CC NOTES, 20 MARCH

3-20-15 TNT DINAR CC (Notes by Adept1):

Replay 805.399.1500, PIN CODE 409029#

http://events.instantteleseminar.com/?eventid=67446381

Tony:  Good morning, TNT!  Today is Friday, March 20, 2015.  Today is another Friday, and we shouldn’t be here.  However, we are closer, there is more positive information, with things happening.

DC:  Everything looks really good.  The summary is simple:  there is a lot more positive info, we don’t know the exact time;  we are hanging off the edge but not falling. Everyone is waiting.  We have been asked to be gentle and specific;  nobody is finding this a laughing matter so we will try not to take liberties. Callers, please don’t complain about any specific person on the calls.

Iraq is ready.  It’s their Sabbath, and in the mosques they said “This is really happening, we promise.” They talked about northern and southern cousins who have been paid on this and that, and some parts of Baghdad as well.  We are waiting on the remaining part. This is still the different classes that have been paid, not the  whole country.   On television, they are still on the fourth stage of the economic reform. Behind the scenes, every office and ministry has been telling their people to get ready.  Of course, everyone was ready on Wednesday, so why are we still sitting here. In Iraq there are many rumors about when this will go through.  The majority of Qi  cards have been adjust from $3.58 to $3.91.  They made it clear that they are not waiting on that to be done. They did have a celebration about beating Da’ash and how that group is eroding;  they are expecting to have more parities this weekend, too.

Tony:  We were asked to be super-sensitive today.  We understand where we are in the process. We are asked to remove negative people at this time, because of where we are in the process.  Everything that was on the television Wednesday was on the television today as well.  The person who got their cards upgraded has family who are now at $3.91.  They started on the edges of the country working through  to Baghdad.  People were told that they would see this when they woke up on Thursday, and now it’s Friday, but I don’t see it stretching out much further. I 100% do NOT see it happening today, although the weekend is something different.

DC:  I understand people are confused about different areas being paid.  IN some parts, the cards are being adjusted to $3.91 on their cards AND long-due payments are now being made.  The snowball effect has now been started in the outer edges of Iraq, and it’s now getting to a critical point, where it is happening for a lot of people, but it’s a real mess because it’s not happening everywhere at once.

Tony: They are working by a plan that they have laid out, going into each region, and making sure the  outer regions understand what’s happening. They are changing the way they do business and banking as well as giving out money.

DC:  It is a thought-out process as weil as daily meetings to feel out how it’s going.

In the USA, the Fed, bankers, UST, etc., have all been on lockdown all week.  They have brought in new folks, including VPs and other higher people who are not normally on lockdown.  They have relaxed that a little bit. Why did they scare everyone?  The systems were live on Wednesday and Thursday for hours at a time.  They were exchanging a few people, one at a time, to make sure the systems were working correctly.  That has been going on for a week, and full on since Wednesday afternoon, in the US and throughout the world. They are incredibly frustrated because they keep being told it will go down this time and it’s another dress rehearsal. The banks are geared up again for as early as this evening and this weekend.  It is live throughout the world, and they are having access to screens if they go looking.  We have had wonderful bank stories from people just asking the tellers. They have never been trained on dinar, they have just checked and say, “That can’t be right!”  So they end up  calling their bosses in, and then say they cannot exchange yet.  The rates are live throughout the system, and it helps to build the message that everyone is ready for this. They have not signaled when this will go down;  we are waiting on Abadi and Shabibi.  They have told everyone to be on their toes and look out for it.  So the world is ready and has been live since Wednesday, and everyone is waiting on this.

Tony:  Here is a disclaimer:  even though these are actual events, they probably won’t work for you, so don’t go to the banks until we get the official word. People went to the banks but have not been able to complete the transactions.  I have talked to bank people whose bosses are still telling them this is not going to happen and it’s all BS. We have two different states and the same bank, where the person presented their currency, and it blew the teller’s mind. They had to get authorization and the manager said, “This can’t be right, we’re not doing it.”  The other manager could see it, but told the person to come back the next day.  Some managers can see it and some cannot.  They are not going to get that authorization code until it’s time.

There have been different banks with different rates – only by a penny or two, but depending on how much you have, that could make a lot of difference. There is competition between the banks.  Some banks were briefed this morning about the 800 numbers, because they didn’t know anything about that. When you call the 800 number for the bank you want, they will send you to a location. They are all being trained to deal with this.

DC: The tests included tier 2 banks, and a few even exchanged a couple of people. Those tests were successful.

Tony:  It could go today, tomorrow or Sunday.

DC:  They are not telling anybody. A lot of smart folks are speculating about times, after the market closes, or after Forex closes.  Some high-up people in banks are saying they expect this time or that, but they are just reading the tea leaves because there is no official time yet.

Tony:  Announcements went out in Iraq to prepare for celebrations in all government offices, although they didn’t say when.  Now, let’s have some calls, but Pam says new callers only.  Pam said that, not me!

702 caller:  I’m not a first caller, so I’ll let you go!  I’ve been on 1500 minutes…

DC: What is your question?

Caller:  You’ve talked about having different get-togethers, and they might not let you have them?  It  would be great if we could get together and meet each other and make connections.  It would be great to hear stories and see how to make money together.

Tony:  I agree!  The little ones we have done here and LA, I think people have enjoyed meeting each other.  I hope DC will get past their objections.  Pam sent a text saying it would also be a great place for scoundrels and scallywags.  Someone else sent a message this morning saying someone is putting together some kind of group.  They are going to the banks with all that information to make a deal at the bank. This has specifically happened in Reno three separate times, Homeland has got involved and restraining orders.  You don’t’ want to get involved with that kind of mess.  If someone has a legitimate group, they will show you the contract and the exact rate.  The only legitimate group I  know already knows its contract rate.  As of this morning, 1.1 billion dinar has been removed from one group.  They can tell you they have a deal and take your dinar, or even just use your information to create a list of new millionaires that they can then sell to advertising companies.  Be aware of this problem!  Even if we meet afterwards, you don’t know these people – you met them on the internet!  Be cautious;  don’t get into business with people you don’t know.  You cannot get into business with me, I won’t go into business with you, but I do want us to meet and have a good time.

Two years ago, the banks said they would show up and help you with being a new millionaire.  You can get that from the banks or any state with a lottery has classes for those who just won the lottery.  If you are in a city with pro teams, they have the same kind of information for new millionaires; you just have to take advantage of it.

510 caller:  Is the contract rate still available?  In regards to the finite contract rate pool, is that just for dinar holders in the US?

DC:  Yes.  The contract rates are available to members of the coalition that liberated Iraq. We don’t know how it is divided up – dependent on who had the most troops or what.  We just don’t know.  It’s like a race, and you need to get in there as quickly as you can when we get the green light.

Pam:  We’ve spent two years telling you not to collect each others information because they don’t know who the person they’re talking to really is.

Tony:  What I was saying is that there are groups out there collecting information.  We have always said not to give out your information on the TNT site.  If you are meeting face-to-face, then you are adults and you can decide for yourself.  We don’t collect your information on TNT, and we don’t allow you to collect that information from our site because there are people who will sell that information on, and who want to take as much of your money as they can.

281 caller:  I am not a first time caller, but I do have a plea – can the more experienced callers please ask pertinent questions to educate others?  I cannot get on the call Mondays or Wednesdays, and I do donate, so can I ask for an exception?

My sister, who is new to this, had an opportunity to travel to Houston;  she walked into a bank there and asked to speak to a wealth manager.  She said she had a couple of currencies to exchange.  The bank manager asked which currencies, and she said the dinar and dong.  The manager said that they would be exchanging those currencies at that location from April 20th, and the manager took her information.  My sister had no idea of the depth of the information – that the bank manager acknowledged they would exchange those currencies and she gave an actual date.

I understand the banks will be competitive.  Let’s say I’ve called the 800 number and I’ve got to my appointment.  Do we give them currency and they will give us a rate right  then?  What’s the deal?

DC: There are two different processes.  The banks with Delarue machines should count the currency in front of you, with a witness, so that there is agreement about what you have and verify that they are legitimate notes.  Then they will offer you specific rates. The majority of exchange locations will not have Delarue machines;  they will count out your notes, with a witness, put it in a bag and ship it overnight to a counting facility where they will count and verify it again.  Before they ship the money off, they will agree a rate with you, so that you will know what will be in your account the next day.  You will get a receipt for it, like any other banking transaction.

Caller:  At one point it seemed like a guessing game, that we wouldn’t know what rate would be available.

DC:  There will be double verification, but don’t let them send your money off until you  are completely comfortable with the rate they are offering.

Tony:  What they really want  you to do is go in, accept the rate they offer, and let it go.  Most people have 100K dinar or less, and they will not offer a higher rate for that amount.  Everyone needs to call the 800 number first, and you want to know what the rate is at that moment.  Make your appointment with whomever offers the highest rate.  If you can’t do that, and if you have a certain amount or higher, you may get offered a higher rate at your appointment.  If not, get an appointment at each of the banks. That’s for people who can wait, for those willing to negotiate to get the best rate.  This does complicate the situation, but this may be the only time in your life you get this amount of money.  It’s common sense, if you have the patience to go to all the banks and then make a decision.

Caller:  Many of us will be glad to get off this roller coaster ride.  For me, I have one shot at this and I want to make sure it’s my best shot.  I’m in the position of power and I want enough ammunition to make sure I put my best foot forward.  I was curious about the contract rate because that is the part that … I want to make sure I get the best for what I have.

DC:  If you play poker where the joker’s wild, we know for a fact that the contract rate is on a very short fuse.  Is it 12 hours?  We’ve been told 1-2 days, most likely.  The nice part is that you have the advantage because you are paying attention and can find out about it quickly and get in there early.  After those contract rates are gone, the banks can still do some rate adjustments depending on how much currency you have.  The joker is the timeline on the contract rates, and we just don’t know that.

Caller:  There will be many contract rates, not just one, right?

DC:  Yes, and each bank has different criteria for their contract rates.  One bank said “We’re just going to beat Wells Fargo”, and that is their mentality.  But that is only for the people they want to deal with.  So they are instructing their people to see how people are dressed, are they respectful to the process, do they want to invest, etc.  Some other banks will just offer the first customers the best rate they can and get you through as quickly as possible.  The banks need to be fair about it to maximize the pool, and spread it around, and that’s why there is a cap of  20 million dinar, maximum. Beyond that, they will want you to take the lower rate.  We have told you how to maximize that.

Tony:  The banks will be competitive on the international rates, too.  For some currencies, one penny’s difference could mean a million dollars more or less.

Caller: Any update on the tax situation?

DC:  No.

Tony:  DC, some members want to know why the ISX went up 1100% and why you haven’t already explained this.

DC:  It’s because Iraq is doing awesome;  they are doing tremendous business, it will be one of the world’s richest countries, and they expect it to go up even further.

239 caller:  Let’s say nothing happens for a week;  can another currency go first?

DC:  There’s always a possibility, but I’d say  less than 1% chance of that.

Caller:  You said that the banks might limit the zim as well?

DC:  We have heard there are caps on dinar and dong, and they didn’t expect to put a cap on zim because not many people had it.  However, numbers have gone up so much in the last month, that a ruling has not been made yet. There are two camps:  one says “let it rip;  it’s less than 10,000 people, so who cares”, and the other camps says “we cannot allow that;  for the first 20 million dollars worth, let it go, and after that make it one penny per zim rather than 15 cents.”

Caller:  Can I just go to different location and cash in another 20 million, and then another and another…?

DC: It depends on how or if they are tracking it.  They  don’t have a system to track that yet, and it’s a question of if they will go to that effort for so few people.

Tony:  If I have ten of those notes, and they give me 15 million for one of those notes, I’m not going to give over my other notes for one million dollars.  I would give those notes away before I give them to the bank for them to get the extra 14 million dollars. I’m talking about the 100 trillion zim notes.  Right now on the screens, one bank is offering 15 cents, and another bank is offering 13 cents, so you see how a penny makes a huge difference. I don’t know who thought up that possibility, but it doesn’t make sense to anyone.  They cannot just take your extra notes;  that is just theft.  Don’t let those notes out of your hand unless you are happy with the rate.  If you are not happy, take your notes to the next bank and see what they will offer you.

DC:   In my opinion, the banks will not treat you that way.  A bank is going to make 2% off your money, and they would always happier making 2% off 15 million dollars than 2% off one million dollars.  They want to do business with  people who have investment ideas, who present themselves well, properly dressed and respectful.

Tony:  A 100 trillion zim note minus six zeroes x .15 = 15 million dollars.  That is not my rate, and I’m not telling you to buy zim, and in any case you probably wouldn’t receive them before this goes.  It’s just one scenario.

702 caller:  You said that when Baghdad gets paid, we get paid.  Didn’t you say that Baghdad is now getting paid?

DC: They have started paying different groups of people, not the entire community. That includes past debts and salaries, health care and pensions, some contracts and a few ordinary citizens.  It’s the government checks that are being paid at $3.91.  They are just starting to do that in Baghdad now, and that is leading to even more economic  disparity between 1166, $3.58 and $3.91 rates.

Tony:  Government checks go through first, from the outside in, but we get paid when the general public gets paid.

Caller: Do you  think that will be soon, or the 20. April like that other gal said?

DC: That is just a few bankers throwing a date up against the wall.  In my opinion it will be very, very soon.  They wouldn’t be doing all this stuff this week without it finishing up very soon. Bankers don’t go into this industry because they expect their phones to be monitored.  You don’t ramp it up to this state, on the edge of the cliff, just for fun.  There is intent and purpose, and we really are that close.

Caller:  Some people are saying it wll be a slower rollout, like one dollar rather than $3.91.

DC: The $3.91 is what is showing up on the cards who have paid those amounts, both in Iraq and on the bank screens around the world.  They have done a tremendous amount of exchanges at mid-three dollars or above.  It’s very unlikely they would go lower. The one-dollar rate had to do with punishing Maliki, plus the UN Chapter 7 deal which said that the rate had to be 1:1 at a minimum.  A lot of that is a translation issue to do with removal of zeroes.  Google translation started a lot of that, but we are all in the camp of mid-threes and above.  I do believe this is happening very shortly, and have my bags packed and by the door for a reason.

610 caller:  It’s snowing here on the east coast, and I hope you’re enjoying sun on the west coast. [Appreciation]  I do hope we’ll have those four events to help the world.

313 caller:  [Appreciation]  I gave currency  to someone with a gift letter;  that was dated but not notarized.  Is that okay?  He cannot take it and have it notarized.

DC:  A notary doesn’t make it true or false, it just gives a timestamp.  We are not attorneys, but Tony and I have been told that the more documentation the better.  Send an email, because it has a date and time stamp.  Just write it up, how much you gave, and both of you print it up with the time and date. With the tax guys, the more documentation you have, the better.

Caller:  The letter is dated and the envelope has a date as well…

DC:  Where you give a lot of currency, I would follow up with an email with an additional date/time stamp on it.

312 caller:  We’re taking it one day at a time.  I have a question about the process.  Once the normal public in Iraq can exchange, we will get the green light.  I assume the groups will go first?  Or will we go simultaneously?  When you send a tweet out, you can only talk to a certain number at the same time… what if we cannot get on the call?

Tony:  Sometimes I can’t get on the call, like today, because we waited until the last minute.  That is on the free conference call side. If you tet the link, that holds 30-40 thousand people. Both have recordings, both the free conference call and the internet site.  I’m pretty sure the site will have to stay up for that call at least.

DC:  Something like 325, 000 people listen to the call and the playback, and they influence well over a million people.

Tony:  Even if you cannot get on the call, you should be able to listen the play back.

DC:  We will go through the  same time as the groups.  If you live in Atlanta, San Francisco or other densely-packed locations, then if might take a few days to get to your appointment, but most places you can get an appointment right away.

Caller:  I have reserves with Sterling, so I might exchange in Atlanta, although I live in Chicago.

Tony:  What confidence do you have that this is happening very soon, given the level of requests to be quiet or be sensitive?

DC:  We have had a high level of requests to be sensitive from the highest level, and they are doing it because this is the real thing and it is upon us now. This is coming from people involved in the process, and it is a strong indication this is happening.

503 caller:  We have King Tony and Smokin’ Winston today!  Latest rates?

DC:  International rates are $3.91 for dinar and $1.56 for dong (contract rate?).

Caller:  Is this being tracked by the UST so that you can’t go to different places to get over the cap for the different currencies?

DC:  They already have that for dinar and dong, and it would be easy to add the zim. ISIL is being pushed back, and they now have Anbar province back.  I think they have pushed the snowball down the hill, and I don’t’ think they can hold it back for more than a few extra days.

Caller:  I know the people on these calls are planning to do great things for their communities, and I can’t wait to see what they will accomplish!

281 caller:  How can we get a certificate so we can have credits towards a degree?

Tony/DC:  <laughter>  That would be nice, wouldn’t it!

Caller:  I have learned so much, I want to tell someone outside Dinarland!

Tony:  One of our guys said that if we would just sell shirts saying Super-fantastic, then people would have something to show they are part of this.  We have seen some great coffee cups and t-shirts.  We haven’t done that because people are always saying we are doing this to make money, and that would just give them another excuse.  I would love it if we could set up a page or when people sign up for Vegas, we would send them a free shirt saying TNT, not about dinar.  That would be a great memento.

DC: Iraq is ready;  they have partially paid man y people throughout the regions.  The US and the rest of the world is on super-duper high alert all week, and they anticipate this going down at any time.  We are just waiting for Shabibi and Abadi to push the button.  There is a lot of speculation, but they are not telling anybody the exact date and time.  We are all excited. Thanks to everyone for listening.  Take a step back and realize what a cool deal this is.  Folks that are involved in this thing, both high and low, have been very generous with their time and sharing their information with Tony and the TNT team.  It’s the coolest thing I’ve ever been involved in…

Pam:  Thanks to all of the TNT team as well… we’ll just keep reporting as long as we can…

Ray:  Is this it?  Enjoy Fantabulous Friday and we’ll hang in hoping it happens before Monday.

Tony:  We’ve been dragging out on paying for the site and the calls, but we do have to pay our bills.  I really expected it to go this week.  They could possibly drag it out until next Monday or Tuesday, but I don’t think so.  We were told that it was going live yesterday morning and it did go live but for only 3-4 hours. They ran some people through to make sure it working.  The screens are blinking, and when they stop blinking, hopefully we will exchange.  We told you those two stories where the tellers had the rates lives, and the managers didn’t let them do the exchange.  We do hope it will go today or tomorrow.  In Iraq, they were ordered to prepare for celebrations, so I would ecstatic if I were you. We aren’t at the edge, we are over edge, we just don’t’ know when they will let us drop.  I think that bank manager might have meant 20. March;  I really don’t think it will stretch out into April.  I’m happy, DC is ecstatic, Ray is happy, and Pam yells at me for doing the roll call.  If anything great happens over the weekend – and I expect it to – look for the tweet and the phone call!

Hoping that the bankers will be "open, transparent, inclusive and responsible" hasn't worked out so well for the last 3000 years, but maybe now is different? We will see how much energetic shift has actually occurred...... Either the cornered beast will lash out in desperation and play out Ron B's derivative disaster or the New Republic has it in hand and has edentulated the beast to our relief. What side you resonate with illuminates your faith in a divine plan.

WASHINGTON, March 17 (Xinhua) -- The United States is not reconsidering entry to the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank

WASHINGTON, March 17 (Xinhua) -- The United States is not reconsidering entry to the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank ( AIIB) despite the agreement by more of its European allies to join the China-proposed institution, the State Department said on Tuesday.

"I'm not aware of a reconsideration," spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki told reporters at a daily news briefing.

Germany, France and Italy confirmed on Tuesday their intention to join the AIIB, following Britain's application last week to be a founding member of the 50-billion-U.S.-dollar bank.

Psaki reiterated U.S. demand for high standards incorporated into the multilateral institution.

"Our position on AIIB remains clear and consistent," she said. "We believe there is a pressing need to enhance infrastructure investment around the world. We believe any new multilateral institution should incorporate the high standards that the international community has collectively built at the World Bank and the regional development bank."

She would not say Washington was disappointed at its allies' moves, stating "These are decisions made by sovereign countries."

"But it will be important for prospective members of the AIIB to push for the adoption of those same high standards," she added.

Nearly 30 countries have confirmed their participation in the AIIB, expected to be formally established by the end of this year. The application deadline is on March 31.

In response to U.S. concerns about the standards of the AIIB, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said last week that the bank's operation and governance would be "open, transparent, inclusive and responsible."

Gideno Gono Calls For Zim Dollar Return, 20 MARCH

Gideno Gono Calls For Zim Dollar Return

Dr Gideon Gono, who retired in December 2013, after a 10-year tenure as governor of the country’s central bank, the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe and whose quasi fiscal activities saw the plummeting of the Zimdollar has rekindled calls for its return saying this was the only way to deal with the current liquidity challenges.

Addressing a Covenant Business Forum, Gono said the Zimdollar will be anchored on the country’s gold reserves and will circulate in tandem with the multi-currency regime.

“Zimbabwe needs to have its own currency to float alongside other currencies. Without our own currency we won’t be able to resolve the liquidity challenges we are facing.”

Gono said before the Zimdollar is re-introduced, sufficient guidelines would be needed and the currency will be backed by gold reserves.

“The currency will be gold backed and will be a return to basics. What is now required are the brains to securitize our $13 trillion worth of gold resource. At an extraction rate of 90 tonnes a year, the gold can last us 1,300 years. This would be a stable backing standard,” said Gono.

During Gono’s tenure Zimbabwe adopted a cocktail of currencies that include the US dollar, British pound, South African rand and the Botswana pula to stem the runaway inflation that had hemorrhaged the economy. LINK

MILLIONDAY, BREITLING & ADAM MONTANA UPDATES, 20 MARCH

3-20-15 Millionday: THE ISX...ANYONE SEE IT? [Yes and there are mixed reviews on that - some "in the know" say it's a glitch. Check the market reports and you'll see that yesterday was just a normal day and this is a mistake.] GLITCH WITH A MAJOR STOCK MARKET? HERE IS WHAT I SEE.  Market Summary General Index 928.35 Change 852.98 % Change 1,131.72% Value traded 1,938,899,339 Shares traded 2,035,424,172. THE CHANGE IN THE ISX IS OVER 1100%. THIS IS A MAJOR MAJOR CHANGE. THAT HUGE % OF CHANGE IS SOMETHING THAT WILL SHOW SOME TYPE OF NEWS FOR US VERY QUICK.

[What does that mean for the RV?] I WISH I HAD THE EXACT ANSWER FOR YOU...BUT WITHOUT THE MARKET REPORT OF WHAT IMPACT THIS HAD TO THE CURRENCY MARKET AND THE GLOBAL MARKET I DONT KNOW YET. I HAVE TO SAY THE MISTAKE IF THAT IS WHAT IT IS VERY INTERESTING...IF NOTHING ELSE -- OF COURSE US AS LOGICAL PEOPLE HAVE TO LOOK MORE BEFORE WE CAN STATE ANY POSITIVE CHANGE OR IMPACT ETC...WE CAN NOT GET EXCITED ETC WITH ONE DAY WITH NO NEWS OF SUCH A HUGE CHANGE ETC. -- THIS HOWEVER VERY INTERESTING. 

3-20-15 Breitling: Isn't funny that they just announced from the CBI that they are going to go ahead and start this 3 year process of adding value to their currency and also don't you find it strange that they are going to take their 50 dinar note off and retire it because it's part of reducing the note count process…these guys are actually making things happen. It's very very exciting! 

3-20-15 Adam Montana: [When is Ramadan?  ...we know once Ramadan takes place everything slows down...Your opinion, with Al-Abadi in place, do you think progress will continued forward once Ramadan arrives, or will we have the normal slow down taking affect and our wait continues into 2016?] Ramadan is June 17 to July 17 this year. I don't think we'll make it that far without seeing something major. Will Ramadan be any different for Parliament under Abadi as opposed to Maliki? I would certainly think so, but "how much" different remains to be seen.
