[tlm724] BondLady gm!
[BondLady] gm everyone
[BondLady] gm timmy cat rcs
[BondLady] theres a article I posted today in the forum timmy CBI gov talks about the international bonds
[tlm724] Governor of the Central Bank: The government is seeking to privatize the Rafidain and Rasheed History of edits::
2015/9/9 10:55
{Baghdad: Euphrates News} The governor of the Iraqi Central Bank on the Keywords The decline in oil revenues reduced the country’s foreign exchange reserves to about $ 60 billion,
adding that the level of reserves this comfortable, revealing that Iraq also needs to reform its banks through restructuring and privatization Rafidain and Rasheed. He explained Keywords in a newspaper interview that the decline in dollar-denominated expenses also also reduced demand for foreign currency.
“The level of reserves in Iraq comfortable” but he also said that reserves are decreasing month but “not significantly.”
Downplayed Keywords down concerns that the continued downward push the Iraqi dinar, which sells for the central bank to banks and dealers who obtained licenses at a price fixed in 1166 dinars to the dollar.
[tlm724] Keywords and said that the issuance of bonds in international markets would help in the reintegration of Iraq regime International Financial after years of wars and sanctions.
[BondLady] there it is
[tlm724] that’s your highlight BL ^^
[BondLady] the issuance of bonds in international markets would help in the reintegration of Iraq regime International Financial
[tlm724] BondLady wars and sanctions are thing of the past
[BondLady] no, not all, as long as Iraq still owes Kuwait and they do at least 1 billon which they got a payment plan for
[tlm724] and an extension ?
[BondLady] Kuwait gave them an extention for I think was a year
[RCS1947] yes
[BondLady] but if Kuwait did this and signed off on the debt to be repaid then this would be why they were released back into the international world to sell these INTERNATIONAL bonds but
[BondLady] theres also more than that, they were under sanctions which Iraq had been paying back or making terms for repayment like Egypts workers that was working in Iraq during Saddams time which weren’t paid. They call that 1 the yellow remittances, which were recently settled or payment arrangements were made none the less sanctions had to be removed before they could go international
[emmaduke] I thought they paid that?
[BondLady] articles within the last 2 weeks maybe 3 emma I posted on them
[tlm724] BondLady those bonds go out this week ! ” the Iraqi government is seeking to its first issuance of international bonds in nine years in Europe and the United States this week.”
[BondLady] Iraq sent Egypt some money for the yellow, dunno if its paid in full or not though but something did change for them to be able to take these bonds international, just need Shredd to address when he gets time
[tlm724] yes I’ll send him a note
[BondLady] the difference between the bonds sold internationally in dollars or dinars, that may be a problem for the dinar not sure, I’m not a banker or economist
tlm724] dinars aren’t recognized yet so they had to be sold in dollars
[BondLady] their mainly trying to make money for their 2016 budget. Maybe they can’t use dinars for international yet and if thats so then maybe they are still under some sort of sanctions, I think answers will unfold soon…
[tlm724] yes ma’am I think your right
[BondLady] just have to wait it out which we have gotten very good at doing
[tlm724] dayum skippy we have  lol
[BondLady] anywhos I just wanted to come out and say howdy and say a few things
[soon] ty bondlady
[cat] BondLady we love you
[emmaduke] ty you hit that nail on the head!!
[BondLady] I always knew towards the end there would be a lot of confusing things to come out and mega questions with no answers, which if you think about it they would have to do it like that to try and protect the dinar and the economy from whales seeing a way to turn big profits with insider information
[tlm724] yep like insider trading
[BondLady] but I think most will be revealed soon
[tlm724] *hallelujah*
[BondLady] ty so much cat rcs timmy and emma


Dealer of Iraqi dinar in Puerto Rico :POWWWWW >>> .... !!!!!
He invited members of the parliamentary economy and investment in small bills to strengthen Iraqi dinars.
Najiba Najib said each agency in Iraq when we have succeeded in strengthening the country's economy will be reflected in the value of the Iraqi dinar against foreign currencies, saying "If you want to compare the Iraqi dinar to the dollar is not weak and almost equal somewhat.
"The main roads to strengthen Iraqi dinars come through diversification of income sources that the approval of Iraq's oil would negatively affect the economy, saying that" monetary policy in the country needs action by the Central Bank through the zero suppression or essential small bills are consistent with the economy and fiscal policy.

Najiba, dijo Najib a cada agencia en Irak cuando hemos logrado fortalecer la economía del país se verá reflejado en el valor del dinar iraquí frente a las monedas extranjeras, señalando que "Si usted quiere comparar el dinar iraquí al dólar no es débil y casi igual en cierta medida.
"Las principales carreteras para fortalecer dinares iraquíes vienen a través de la diversificación de fuentes de ingresos que la aprobación de Irak el petróleo afectaría negativamente la economía, afirmando que" la política monetaria en el país necesita acción por parte del Banco Central a través de la supresión de ceros o billetes pequeños esenciales son consistentes con la economía y la política fiscal.

Highlights of Tony's CC.  Updated as the call progresses.  NOTE:  It is "iffy" if I will be able to post Friday's call.

Tony:  Banks are on highest of alerts.  Were told it would go Tuesday and early this morning but did not happen.  Our military in Iraq cannot make exchanges as they were told it was about to happen.

New reduced salaries announced, effective in September. They were ridiculous for Parliament to have.  Undersecretary of Ministry, 2.4 million dinars. Directors, half a million.  What is that, $500 month?  We need to wait for payday and see what happens. 

CURRENT WINDOW:   Tony:  Almost "zero" chance of it happening tomorrow or Friday.  We need to wait for payday and see what happens.  Payday is 14-15th.  Window opens again on Sat. 12-15th. I just told you the 15th cuz that's payday. It could very well happen Sat morning.

Tony:  Will it happen the 14-15th or the 30th?  Feel good about it, but just waiting for it to happen

IRAQ:    New reduced salaries announced, effective in September.   They know what the salaries are but do not have access yet to them. Tony:  The last payday they did not get paid under the new rate. 
There are two rates in the marketplace, so the people can see it is coming. Laws are done.   
  • Maliki:  Tony's understanding is Maliki and his son are both still in the Green Zone.  He is being monitored to not leave the country.  He's still in politics and there are those trying to put him back in a powerful position so he cannot be charged with crimes.  He had Dinar in the plane walls and sewn into the seats of the plane.     
  • Bonds:   Tony:  Starting tomorrow to sell bonds to fund their government. People don't have confidence in their currency to buy the bonds right now. If they had the RV they would. 
  • TV  /Mosques: Tony did not get information on what is being said in the mosques. 
  • ISIL
  • Iran Rial:  Tony has no idea what previous Rial rate was.  He feels the deal is uncertain to go through and there are other currencies to purchase.  Tony:  I cannot advise you on the Rial at all.
  • Rates:  Zim:  Tony has uncirculated.    
UNITED STATES:  is the one pushing for the RV lately.  Tony:  Don't know why it hasn't been done.  Nobody here is doing anything right now to stop us.  Iraq must fight for the Iraqi people.  Our government can go and fight for the Iraqi people.  Not us.
  • UST:    
  • Banks:  on lockdown today.    
  • Packages:   
Caller with 23 years of military service, commended Tony on his 15 years of military service and said he was proud of him and glad to talk to him.     

EXCHANGING:   Your zip code will determine where you exchange your currency.  (So, IMU that would indicate to use a zip code where you want to exchange.)   Locations: some will be away from the main bank in high dollar areas and may be in a mortgage office, real estate, investment, and conference areas, etc.   


PAM:  Make sure you deal with professionals where you can look them in the eyes.  This is not “mom & pop” stuff anymore.  Don’t put your hair on fire.  Your ready.  You know how to do this.
RAY:  When we going to see it Wednesday.  While still time don’t forget Roth IRA’s and Roth 401K.  Give it some attention.
TONY:  Talking about people receiving phone call from fake FBI and IRS agents.  People threatening you.  Please don’t fall for that and please look out for the elderly.  If they are getting phone calls like that, then people are trying to abuse them.  People telling them they can get paid more money.
I got letters over weekend, people went to locations and gave away their Dinar.  Litigation for next 10-20 years trying to get it back.

My address:  Fulsom CA.  Please let us know how this worked for you.  Let’s make this the final chapter in the book.  . . .All of this will be a great story or the ending of the movie.  All will be in the museum and nothing like personal letters from you guys after the fact.  Don’t have to put your address on it.  Just say, “I helped 10 people change their lives.”
So much we can do.  Going to be a great project about humanity itself.  That’s what I’m looking for.
Thank you everybody.  Today as good as any other day.  10-11th not be good days, what I’m hearing.  In best possible window we can be in right now.  Telling their people in articles this is what and when they plan on doing it.
Enjoy your day   If anything wildly crazy happens, we’ll Tweet.


TNT Call notes 9-September-2015

Tony:  Good morning, TNT!  Today is Wednesday, September 9, 2015.  [We didn’t have a call on Monday because of the Labor Day holiday.]  We’re still here where no one wanted to be, but it is what it is.  Theirs is only good news. The banks were on high alert over the weekend and yesterday;  they were told things would happen on Tuesday, and then nothing happened. They are on the highest of alerts, as we all are, for this to happen.
In Iraq, they were restricting the military from doing ANY exchanges at any location. Their rates went down to 800 to 1, which is a great rate for us.  Then they were told they couldn’t do any exchanges because  something was about to happen, then nothing happened.  In Iraq yesterday, they were told what their new salaries are, and they are supposed to have access on payday.  They are not happy, but there it is.  In the market place, they have two rates, and the rate that will go into effect.  The articles today listed the new salaries, “effective in September”, and that is now in public for all to see. 
Everything is looking good, and everyone is ready for it.  There are ridiculous numbers for Parliament to have and for us not to see this.  The VP, deputy PM, etc., are making six million dinars, and ministers making four million dinars – that is thousands according to the current rates, in the richest country in the regions.  If they pay them at the new rate, that is more like $6,000 per month, that is good money.   I like the fact it’s in  writing, that they actually came out with the salaries, and that this will be implemented from the 1stof September.  So we need to wait for payday.
They are on the highest of alerts today. There is almost zero chance of it happening tomorrow or Friday, because of 9-11.  I think payday is the 14-15th.  We are in that window now.  I said last week that if it didn’t have it over the holiday, it would be the 14-15, or the 30th.  I think payday is 14-15 this month, and I can wait until then.  That’s all good news, nobody is upset, everyone is pushing for it. They wanted it yesterday, told the banks on Saturday, and why they were in the banks yesterday.  I don’t know why it didn’t happen yesterday.  I wish it would be today, but I was told not to look for it tomorrow or Friday. But when the weekend comes around, or Monday/Tuesday, we should be there.  That’s where we are at.  Everything is progressing, meetings are done, laws are done, we are in a great day.
702 caller:  I’m a first-time caller.  I do have one question:  do you think the Iran sanctions will have any effect on the RV?
Tony:  I don’t.  Even though President Obama has enough votes, we are not hearing much from the Iran side, one way or the other.  But it will not affect the RV.
Caller:  Vegas, Vegas, Vegas!
404 caller:  Iraq delegations are coming to the US;  will they need to be back on Iraqi soil before we can expect the RV?
Tony:  I would think so.  If they came here to do the bonds, and they are supposed to go international tomorrow… can they sell them at the old rate?  They could, but I imagine they would rather sell them at the new rate?  A couple of years ago, when this was supposed to happen, and there was a delegation here, they set up a movie set to make it look like they were at home to broadcast this, so anything can happen.
Caller:  Vegas, Vegas, Vegas!  So Tony can go and we can meet each other.
410 caller:  Are you we going to skip a whole weekend?  How can they do that?  Don’t they want this to come out at the weekend?  I can see them skipping  9-11, but can’t they contact us on Saturday so that we can make appointments?
Tony:  They could very well do this Saturday morning, absolutely. 
Caller:  What about the pressure on the markets?  I thought it was closely related to how they would behave, at least as a distraction…
Tony:  I think what we saw happen is that the market made an adjustment so that it wouldn’t be as crazy when this happens.  That had to happen, so they did it right now, so once the RV is announced everyone can adjust together and it won’t be as insane.  They aren’t going to take all this new money and dump it into the market;  if this is the  new normal, then there is less of an adjustment to be made. 
Caller:  It seems like they have a plan?  It seems they missed a payday, and that seem odd for people?
Tony:  They did pay  everyone but at the old rate.  Now they have announced the change for the next payday, which should be by next week.  We have heard this before – they said they would do it on payday  last month – but now they are putting it out in writing. Every time they do that, they make themselves look bad when they don’t follow through.  I was discussing this with people this morning.  They are taking that chance again.
Caller:  Let’s hope this is the last time. Vegas, Vegas, Vegas!
Tony:  They cannot keep doing this.  Some other things have to happen, but it seems like this is the time.  Everyone is pushing for it now.
239 caller:  I want to ask about the Iranian rial. What was the best rate the rial had before it went down 15+ years ago.  Was it in the three dollar range?
Tony: I don’t’ have a clue.  I understand you are all concerned about Iran, but there are too many currencies out there that I know will make us money to be concerned about one that might
Caller: So you don’t’ think it will part of the first basket?
Tony:  It’s not one of the five currencies I’m looking at.
Caller: Those who have purchased rial, they have to purchase it from a bank, not from ebay or wherever?
Tony:  I don’t know anything about the rial and cannot advise on that.
423 caller:  It keeps looking like it will happen and it doesn’t happen, and it seemed to have something about Maliki;  has he been arrested or what?
Tony:  My understanding is that Maliki and his son are both still in the Green Zone;  he cannot leave the country, he’s still in politics but not in power, and his party is trying to keep him in Parliament so that he cannot be charged while his opponents want him to be charged.  His dinar has been found buried, in his private plane, and they have confiscated all of that.
Caller:  There have to be a lot more crooks who have dinar, and they won’t exchange before getting that back, will they?
Tony:  They have been tracking that, and have things lined up to watch who is funneling that money through where… Abadi is still fighting for his reforms, “even at the cost of my life”, because there are still people loyal to Maliki and the way that he thinks. Abadi still has a fight on his hands, and he has to do it in the right way, legally and in an approved way so that people don’t get mad at him.
Caller:  That’s what I thought:  that Maliki was arrested and would be charged.  I hope they lock him up!  You said a while back that maybe banks would only take people within a certain radius of that bank.
Tony:  My understanding is that they will ask you what your zip code is, and they will send you to the banks in your area.  I am sure they would prefer you to exchange in your local area, where you’re going to spend the money, but you can tell them whatever zip code you want.
Caller:  I’ll see you in North or South Carolina.
602 caller:  Thanks for the info, Tony.  Last week you were talking about the crowds in the streets in Iraq – are the people still protesting, or has that calmed down as they wait for the next payday?
Tony:  I didn’t ask about that and my contact didn’t’ bring it up.  They did change the rates over the weekend, so they know this is coming, so they may  be a bit calmer.  If this doesn’t come out by payday, they may be backing themselves into a corner. 
Caller:  They usually get paid earlier in the month, so if we don’t see this by the 15th, what do you see happening at the end of the month?
Tony: There are the bonds, etc., and there are other end of the year things they want to get done in the provinces – and their fiscal year starts on 1st October.
405 caller:  Why has the USA been the one stopping it lately?
Tony:  My guys say the USA has been pushing it lately.  It might have stopped because they want the groups and laws are in agreement, or because of the  bonds.  I don’t know why it was stopped, because everything has been done.  There may have been a fault in the system.  Let’s see what happens.  We are not going to get into it and push it more; we are not going to attack our government to push another country.  They are out in the streets because they don’t’ like corruption in their government.  It’s their fight, and they are already pushing on it.  Here it’s an election year, and nobody here is going to take up that fight because it’s not about us.  Everyone here is just waiting for us to go to the bank;  there is nothing for us to fight for. The Iraqi people can fight for the Iraqi people, and our government can fight for them, but not us.  Sometimes we just have to wait for people to do what they are supposed to do.  Alright?
773 caller:  I’m glad you enjoyed the holiday weekend with your family.  How does this bond issue affect the RV?  There was a Reuters articles saying that the last time Iraq issued international bonds was in 2006, etc.  If they issued them then, without an international currency, why do we need to have an RV to issue them now?
Tony:  they don’t HAVE to have one, it would just make more sense and would give a higher return. People don’t’ have confidence in their currency right now, and if there is an RV, those bonds would fly off the shelf. What is the benefit if Iraq has not shown any progress?  Announcing the new laws, the RV and stability for investments would make a lot more sense. They didn’t raise a lot of money the last time, and that’s why they are doing it again, to raise money for the government.  It might work out better this time.  Either way, it doesn’t guarantee us an RV that they are issuing international bonds;  it would just make more sense if they have an RV beforehand.  The problem is, I don’t think they care if it makes sense of us.  They obviously have their own plan and we have to wait and see what that is.
231 caller:  [chitchat]  First-time caller.  Do you feel that this really could be our month?
Tony:  I feel good that this is our month. I have information you don’t have, but I’ve had info in the past that you don’t have, and felt really good then. We’ve been within ten minutes of being paid. I know that the banks have restricted their people and they are ready – but they’ve done that 5-10 times before.  That’s how ready they are, and the agencies as well. They’re pushing it, but somehow it’s still not happened. These are guys in position or power, and they are saying “Don’t be surprised if this happens…”  They have reduced their pay, and they have bills to pay, and everyone is in position, so I feel good about it – just waiting for it to happen!
Caller: You know how soldiers are:  we will keep doing our job, but eventually you have to pay us.  I hope Iraq will pay its soldiers because they do everything for the people.
Tony:  I am certain they will get paid when this happens.
707 caller:  Remember the warning DC gave you about plugging in the thumb drive for the Superfantastic stamp.  I sent that thumb drive to you, and there is nothing on it apart from the graphic file.  Now, about the zim;  I purchased uncirculated currency. Will that make a difference? 
Tony:  All my zim is uncirculated, too.  That won’t make any difference.
Caller:  I was in a coin collector’s shop, and the guy said that circulated silver coins were worth more than uncirculated, and also the price on the website was higher for circulated currency than uncirculated.  That’s what put the question in my mind.
Tony:  I could be wrong, but I don’t think it makes any difference.
406 caller:  DC have anything to say in the last few days?  And Pam, why didn’t we get anything from Texas?
Tony:  He said “be ready so you don’t have to get ready!” 
Pam:  I had trouble getting on and didn’t have time to play any Texas songs.
Caller:  [Appreciation]  Vegas, Vegas, Vegas!
936 caller:  Is there any new information on the exchange locations or procedures.
Tony:  No. I know people are there, ready, trained, introduced to the higher interests and programs;  I don’t think the locations have changes at all.  Some will be at the banks, some at real estate locations, investment office, or mortgage locations.  Most will be at a high-dollar locations, the places where they have high-value account already.  I’m not aware of any changes to the NDAs either. Maybe they have finally settled on 34 pages as enough – no, the average person will only have five pages, if you take the contract rate only.  I understand they are still going to have extended hours, 7am to 11pm
Caller:  I guess we are still in a holding pattern, waiting for your tweet.  [Appreciation] 
985 caller:  Last month, you said those guys didn’t get paid…
Tony: They did get paid, but at the old rate, but nearly at the end of the month rather than around the 7th. They delayed paying them because they wanted to pay them at the new rate, but it didn’t happen.
Caller:  You also said that in some places the rates were live.
Tony:  Yes, there was a lady who walked into the bank to exchange one of the currencies and they gave her a live rate of $13,000 per million.  She exchanged one million, went home to get more, and when she went back, they said they made a mistake and they took her money back. Other people I know were able to exchange and kept their money. There seem to be moments when the rates are live, and if you happen to be in the right place at the right time, it happens.  Other times, they look at the rate and say, “this can’t be right” and they refuse to exchange. 
Caller:  A while back you said some lady used your name to get people to her site…
Tony:  When we first started, one lady said she was my mother, and convinced a thousand people at a 35 dollars apiece to go to her site for information – but that was 3-4 years ago.  This happens every so often.  I think I should put my own story out there and get paid for it.  <joke>  I don’t care.  Let’s just have the RV and all get paid.
With that, we are having a good time and good information.  Pam
Pam: Take your time – there is no rush. Make sure you deal with professionals you can check out. This isn’t mom-and-pop stuff, you’re in the big leagues, so be careful.  Don’t panic;  you know what to do, you’re ready, and you know how to do this.
Ray:  When are we going to do see it Wednesday – give some attention to self-directed IRAs and Roth IRAs.
Tony:  People have received phone calls from fake IRS and FBI agents, threatening you for buying foreign currency.  Don’t’ fall for that.  Look out for your elderly friends because there are people saying they can get them paid early, if they give them their dinar and such. Let’s look out for each other, especially in these final moments.  When it’s over, send me a letter about how this worked out for you, and how you are paying it forward, so that we can put  that final part in the museum.  Did people pay it forward and change people’s lives?  How did it benefit the everyday person?  That is the final part of the story.  The address is
Tony Renfrow, 9580 Oak Avenue Parkway, #7269, Folsom CA 95630-7269.
There is nothing like personal letters after the fact.  Some are saying “don’t send letters or pictures” because ‘they’ will know who you are, but I don’t know you, and you don’t have to put your address or contact information.  Don’t sent a letter if you don’t want to!  But it will be a great story about humanity itself, to see how we are able to help other people. That’s what I’m looking for. 
Today is a great day.  I’m told it won’t be tomorrow or Friday, but we starting on the 12th… they are putting out great information and articles telling their own people this is happening. If anything wild and crazy happens we will put out a tweet.  Meanwhile, enjoy your day! 


9-9-2015   Intel Guru Mnt Goat    I told you from mid August to mid September would be a very critical time for getting these reforms accomplished. I told you Abadi would make a final push to get them completed and it would be very sudden and unexpected by most. We are witnessing all of this now. I firmly expect Abadi to clean up the CBI and Dr Shabib to come back to an “official” capacity to head up the CBI once again before these projects kick off fully.   ...it is very important and necessary for Iranian influence to be gone or greatly impaired in Iraqi politics and in the general influence of Iraq prior to any RV...the pressure is building now for this to happen too. Lots of pressure in all areas of getting rid of Iranian influence in Iraq...   [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]

   In their professional opinion after being involved in Bond Offerings 100 times more valuable than Iraq's, one does not make this long of a trip to the 2 leading World Powers with the 3 Leading World Banks IF NOT INTENDING TO MAKE A DEAL to issue debt THAT WILL BE AN OFFERING EXTERNALLY IN THE GLOBAL FINANCIAL MARKETS.   Iraq is not here for a lot of talk and no action. They are hopefully here to sell Bonds, signed sealed and delivered in the Global World Markets.  To do so, requires a rate and one considerably higher than is presently at 1186. No Country and No Corporate Entity in their opinion are going to buy these Bonds on a promise from a country such as Iraq or any country for that matter with a Program Rate.  It will require a RATE INCREASE FIRST.  Naturally this is only the opinion of 2 close friends who have over 50 years of experience in the World Global Bond Markets and are Dinar Investors and who have been involved in not Billions...but Trillions of Bond Investments over their long careers.  [post 2 of 2]

   [new guru]   I decided to...meet for lunch with two of my close friends who are very active in the Chicago Financial Community who are considered by their peers to be 2 of the most respected Bond Traders around who just happen to also be very large Iraqi Dinar Investors as well...one of them will be at the upcoming meetings in London.  Without a doubt, they both said that the United States and London are the 2 leading Bond Market Places in the World.  In addition, Citigroup, Deutche Bank and JP Morgan are without a doubt the 3 leading underwriters of the World. Neither of these 2 Countries or 3 Banks are going to be blindsided by a Country such as Iraq.  ...the names listed representing Iraq on this trip are at the pinnacle of its own financial community. They would not be sending the best if not without orders to get a deal done.   [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]

 "...A member of the parliamentary economy calls for the deletion of zeros and the issuance of Banknotes small to strengthen the dinar..."   which only means one thing...small notes and strengthening the Dinar = RV - period...as of today we have a member of the Parliamentary Economic committee calling for the RV...my comments are backed up by some very mainstream reports.  [How much of a push will that create now that the parliamentary economy has called for an RV?]   I'm hoping - a "tremendous push".

   Article:  "Agency US: Iraqi investment bonds “weak”   Quote:  "the Iraqi Finance bond strength rank B- weak, as shown that this category because of the vulnerability of Iraq’s security and institutional risks impressive on the strength of its economy"   had Iraq made better progress with their economic laws up til this point I believe this rating would have been at least a B or B+.   now they are wanting to sell these bonds and the confidence in Iraq has not reached a comfortable level Yet and they are gonna feel those repercussions during this sale.   they haven’t proven that they can financially operate outside of oil sales after all these years they are still working towards a free market and until they prove themselves financially responsible it’s gonna be a hard sell on these bonds.

Iko Ward:
  Forex just went back to 1166. They didn't even wait for 10AM. For those of you who only care about going to the bank I can state categorically that no, absolutely nothing has happened,

Iko Ward:
 For the rest of us, the new world is unfolding before your eyes, how fortunate we are to have seen it.

  Hello iko, so are you saying we aren’t running to the bank anytime soon. but things are happening

New Creation:
  Utah...YES! However, it is clearly knocking on the door....wow..amazing all that is taking place, we have NEVER seen these things unfold before..

Already Blessed :
Iko Ward:  So, a little recap to reinforce what AB, elmer, martha and others are saying. Forex went to 1110 last night (best it's been since January), then zoomed right back to CBI rate of 1166 this morning (fastest it's ever zoomed that time of day).

Stock markets continue to "look good". In Asia, a little too good.

Nikkie closed up at 7.71%.

Gold going down, crude hovering around 45.

Keep reading, guys, it all makes sense.

JV: IKO, is this good, bad, or otherwise? I heard it was 1110 and then back to 1166. I wish a had a brain.

Iko Ward : that's what we all are asking. It IS a new pattern that started this week at a new time with a large spread, so we're trying to sort out the reasoning for it.



  A perspective on attitude: a friend told me about a guest speaker he heard. She is a neuroscientist or nuerosurgeon - basically she understands WAY MORE about the human brain than most people. She said positive thinking and attitude triggers a better chemical reaction/protein creation in the brain than negative. It effects your entire physical being. Choose the positive!

EF:   Prime Minister Al-Abadi: We Have Heard the Iraqi People

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi penned an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal on September 8, 2015 in which he addressed the recent protests in Iraq and the steps that the government of Iraq is taking to “bring about meaningful change that will end the cycle of nepotism and corruption that has stifled our country’s ability to meet its full potential.”

The Prime Minister challenged three perceptions which are commonly held by outside observers: that Iraq’s communities lack a common sense of identity; that the country is irredeemably divided along ethno-sectarian lines; and that Iraq is not conducive to democracy.

“Iraqis of all backgrounds have mobilized under one flag—calling for sweeping reforms that would, in essence, fulfill the democratic aspirations that are enshrined in our Constitution. The demands cut across ethno-sectarian lines and seek to raise living standards for all Iraqis,” wrote Prime Minister Al-Abadi. “Our government is responding not with repression but with far-reaching reforms intended to reinforce a program of political and economic renewal,” he added.

The Prime Minister elaborated on radical measures recently adopted by the Iraqi government to address the fiscal crisis that was exacerbated by an overreliance on oil revenues, including broadening the tax base and making billions of dollars’ worth of investments in the industrial, housing and agricultural sectors to stimulate growth in Iraq’s economy. The government is also offering incentives for entrepreneurship and domestic and international private investments.

“With this leaner government we will rebuild infrastructure, including roads, highways, hospitals and schools. Another aim is to reduce unemployment, especially among the young people who may be attracted to extremism, and restore basic public services such as electrical power and safe drinking water. We will also be better able to assist the millions of internally displaced persons who have fled Daesh’s brutality and barbarism.”

Prime Minister Al-Abadi urged Americans and other international partners, who share an interest in defeating Daesh and building a stable and democratic Iraq, to help by offering expertise in streamlining bureaucracy, combating corruption and improving public services.

“Today, a historic opportunity for national reconciliation presents itself. If all parties can commit to abiding by the democratic process and reject violence as a means of extracting political gains, then it may be possible to reach a comprehensive settlement that could secure a prosperous future for successive Iraqi generations. Together, we can prove that peaceful reforms can prevail over violent extremism and ensure that the sacrifices of the past 12 years were not in vain,” Prime Minister Al-Abadi concluded.

Hello Everyone. Today I come to you once again to see what sense we can all make out of this RV saga of the Iraqi dinar.
Sorry but today’s news letter is very long again. I think the longest yet. It almost has to be since there is no such thing as a short news letter anymore from what is happening in Iraq. Things are moving so fast. Even when I try to emphasis only the most important articles and news I still have a difficult time limiting the size of the news letter.
After reading today’s news you would have to be (plainly speaking) darn right stupid not to realize that the revaluation of the IQD is now being stalled (delayed).
So like many of my recent past news letters print it off, grab a good strong cup of strong, hot coffee and settle down in your favorite chair. Read today’s news carefully. It is chock full of goodies.
Today’s News
Today is Wednesday September 9th and still no RV or hopes of an RV window until at least mid September.
I told you from mid August to mid September would be a very critical time for getting these reforms accomplished. I told you Abadi would make a final push to get them completed and it would be very sudden and unexpected by most. We are witnessing all of this now. So was Mnt Goat correct again.
I told you there would be a progress report of the Iraq needed laws and reforms in mid September and out pops news of a scheduled third Conference 9/11-9/17. So who is right again?
I told you that “if” this reform process is successful, we would be in a great window to possibly see the currency reform project pick up momentum and maybe see a significant increase the value of the Iraqi dinar and the continuation of the “deletion of the 3 zeros” project. This would occur sooner than later. Then just recently again out pops 2 important articles by MPs asking the same questions we are asking – that of why has the project to delete the zeros not been completed and why have the lower denominations not yet been distributed?
Funny how we get these type of article just before a critical window of opportunity for an RV is upon us.
But I also said IF THE REFORMS AND LAWS WERE DELAYED we may be seeing sometime in early 2016 for our next window of opportunity for an RV. Many still put words in my mouth and claim I am giving a 2016 date. Did you just read what I said? I said it was all dependent on the meeting being held in mid September 9/11 – 9/17 to determine actions going forward and setting new target dates. So please stop all the needless discussions and attitudes towards the 2016 timeframe. We just have to wait and see how it all plays out. But remember just because you want an RV sooner than later does not make it reality. Remember many also said in April that this RV would never make it till June timeframe. Many swore Mnt Goat was an idiot for her analysis. Now she is also saying we may not see it until 2016 but it is all dependent on the progress.
I firmly expect Abadi to clean up the CBI and Dr Shabib to come back to an “official” capacity to head up the CBI once again before these projects kick off fully. We will soon see if Mnt Goat is correct on this too.
Let’s get going with today’s news. There is so much news again and I will attempt to summarize it for you and put it into perspective.

Baghdad (AIN) – Iraq’s ability to fight Islamic State extremists who control roughly a third of the country is hampered by a financial crisis that has left the Baghdad government operating “hand to mouth,” Iraqi Ambassador Lukman Faily warned this week.
The inability to pay salaries on time to the soldiers and militiamen fighting the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, has hurt morale and hindered progress in operations to retake key hubs that were captured by the jihadists, Faily said in an interview Thursday. And belt-tightening measures such as consolidating government ministries threaten to exacerbate ethnic and sectarian tensions by upsetting the delicate power-sharing quota system that’s been in place since the U.S.-led occupation authority took charge following the invasion of 2003.
“This goes back to not making your support conditional,” he added, referring to Iraqi officials’ frustration with the Obama administration’s reluctance to bail them out last year unless Baghdad first made reforms to address the corruption and ingrained sectarianism that softened the ground for the extremist takeover of Mosul in the north and most of Anbar province in the west.
Faily, who belongs to the ruling Dawa Party, blamed the crisis chiefly on the plummeting price of oil — the government relies on exports for some 85 percent of revenue — though economists and foreign policy analysts say that decades of mismanagement and corruption also have contributed.
Faily acknowledged government fault, citing an overdependence on oil revenues and the slow pace of addressing graft such as the use of “ghost employees,” workers who exist only on paper so that supervisors can pocket the salaries.
Much of Iraq’s spending is defense-related as the country struggles simultaneously to rebuild the U.S.-trained military that collapsed during the Islamic State onslaught and to launch offensives to retake captured territories. And they’re doing this with a budget that was based on oil at $56 a barrel, though in recent weeks the fluctuating price has dipped to closer to $40 a barrel. A revenue-sharing deal between Baghdad and the mostly autonomous, oil-rich Kurdistan region has broken down, depriving the central government of another cash stream.
Ben Van Heuvelen, managing editor of Iraq Oil Report, which closely monitors the Iraqi oil sector, said a major cause of the crisis is that the previous administration of Nouri al-Maliki “left zero financial buffer for the inevitable down cycle in commodity price.” He said that al-Maliki’s successor, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, has “made some good moves,” including painful spending cuts and exploring revenues outside of oil, but that he stands little chance of yanking the country back from the brink anytime soon.
A U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity because it involves sensitive diplomatic and defense matters, said the Obama administration has increased its military assistance to Iraq in recognition of the twin crises of the Islamic State presence and the severe financial strain due to collapsing oil prices.
The official acknowledged that “it is an increasing challenge” for the Iraqis to fight the Islamic State, “and that’s why we’ve put so many of our own financial resources” into the campaign.
Foreign military financing, which uses U.S. funds to procure weapons, included $300 million for Iraq for fiscal year 2014 and $150 million for 2015 before jumping again to $250 million in the current pending request for 2016. In addition, the official said, the U.S. military donated some surplus American equipment, including 300 MRAPs, mine-resistant armored vehicles.
“They need a bunch of things across the board, everything from anti-tank weapons to MRAPS to Humvees to arms and equipment,” the official said.
As of Aug. 15, the official said, the total cost of U.S. operations against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria is $3.7 billion, with an average cost of $9.9 million a day. The official said critics who question why the United States is spending so much in defense of one of the world’s most oil-rich nations are ignoring the broader consequences should Iraq lose more ground to the extremist group.
“You can’t look at this as an Iraqi fight,” the official said. “ISIL is a threat to the region, to the international community. It’s a mistake to look at this as an Iraqi or a Syrian fight. ISIL has shown the global implications they can have, and just their sheer brutality needs to be defeated. To characterize it as an Iraqi fight is wrong.”
Faily acknowledged the U.S. help and said that the Germans and Dutch, too, have contributed light weapons, equipment and anti-tank systems. But most battle-related costs, he said, are Iraq’s responsibility. That goes not just for the regular army and security forces, he said, but also for some of the Shiite Muslim militias known as the Popular Mobilization Forces.
“The actual fighting on the ground we’re financing ourselves,” Faily said. “Salaries, weapons, uniforms, equipment.”
But the budget crisis means that paychecks are late — “three months behind, four months behind,” Faily said — which, in turn, deals a blow to the morale of a fighting force that’s already much maligned for its evaporation during the Islamic State offensive that took Mosul, the second-largest city in the country.
“You want your professional army to deal with things professionally,” Faily said.
There’s also the risk, Faily said, of losing recruits to paramilitary groups, particularly the Iranian-funded militias that the U.S. government designates as dangerous “special groups.” Though just 35,000 special groups militiamen are part of the 120,000-person Shiite paramilitary structure, he said, the loss of manpower to them is a blow to the government’s effort to assert authority over all armed factions in the fight against the Islamic State.
Faily said Iraq’s finance minister is traveling to London and Washington next month in hopes of selling some $6 billion in Iraqi bonds, and that the Iraqi Cabinet is scrambling to cut spending in other areas, downsizing diplomatic outposts and halting some investment projects. Iraq also received a credit rating for the first time and secured a loan agreement from the World Bank.
Other budget trims have been more controversial, such as doing away with some high-ranking ceremonial positions and consolidating government ministries. The divvying up of official posts according to sect, ethnicity and political party was a longstanding tactic to appease the disparate groups that were jockeying for power after the fall of Saddam Hussein’s regime.
Though some analysts are hopeful that, in the long run, the changes will do away with an ineffective patronage system, they agree that in the short term the moves threaten to further aggravate internecine tensions, jeopardizing Abadi’s broad reform agenda. And that, according to U.S. officials and analysts, opens even more opportunities for extremists to gain from the disarray.
“If you believe, as I do, that deep political problems in Iraq created an environment that was ripe for ISIS to take over a third of the country, then you also believe that there needs to be some kind of political foundation to any long-term solution to the problem,” said Van Heuvelen, of Iraq Oil Report. “But if the way you’re used to finding political solutions is by throwing money at the problem and bringing constituents into the fold by promising them a slice of this very lucrative oil pie, then if that pie shrinks, your ability to create political solutions evaporates.” /End/

As I have been telling everyone it is very important and necessary for Iranian influence to be gone or greatly impaired in Iraqi politics and in the general influence of Iraq prior to any RV.
So recently out pops a news article on the Iraqi Shiite Grand Ayatollah reportedly sending a letter to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali al-Khamenei asking about the IRGC Quds Force chief’s role in Iraq. Article is below.
Once again their words not mine. No hype or rumors, just the facts.
This article is telling us the importance of getting rid of Iranian influence and that it is a major obstacle to the stability of  Iraq. It is now a target for the religious sector as it is for the political sector. I believe it is just a matter of time before Soleimani’s Quds forces and militias will have to pull out. Remember too that the US generals do not want their USA “boots on the ground” forces fighting alongside Iranian forces. It will NEVER HAPPEN ! Being that the USA is finally committing a significant level of military forces as a surge force (50,000 troops) to free Anabar and Mosul areas, wouldn’t it be a good idea now for Iran to pull out prior to their arrival? If the do not it will be interesting to see just what will happen.
This is all good news as the pressure is building now for this to happen too. Lots of pressure in all areas of getting rid of Iranian influence in Iraq, something we prayed for so long.

The Shiite Grand Ayatollah reportedly sent a letter to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali al-Khamenei asking about the IRGC Quds Force chief’s role in Iraq.
BEIRUT – The highly influential Shiite Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani has reportedly criticized Iranian Revolutionary Guards Quds Force chief Qassem Soleimani’s role in Iraqi politics, in a sign of a split between the Shiite religious establishments in Iraq’s Najaf and Iran’s Qom.
Asharq Alawsat reported Monday that Sistani had sent a message to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei questioning him about “Soleimani’s increasing influence in Iraq.”
An unnamed Iraqi politician told the Saudi-daily that Sistani had asked “whether this had happened at Khamenei’s instruction or through Soleimani’s [own independent action.]”
The normally shadowy Quds Force commander emerged as a public figure following ISIS’ sweeping advances in Iraq in the summer of 2014, appearing in a number of pictures alongside Shiite Iraqi militiamen.
However, Soleimani’s media presence has shrunk in recent months, amid reports that his bombastic statements on Tehran’s foreign policy have upset Iranian leaders.
The Economist on September 5 cited a source as saying that the IRGC commander had been reined in by the Iranian authorities and “can no longer act as a de facto foreign minister.”
The report further stated that former IRGC commander Mohsen Rezaei had been brought out of retirement back to his former position to “keep an eye on General Suleimani.”
Despite reports of Soleimani’s curtailed role, he has continued to act as a trouble-shooter in Iraq. In July, the Quds Force chief met a number of Iraqi Kurdish leaders to discuss extending Massoud Barzani’s term as president of the autonomous Kurdish Regional Government.
Then in late August Soleimani appeared at a meeting of the National Alliance parliamentary coalition of Shiite parties that ended with an acrimonious exchange between him and Iraqi Premier Haidar al-Abadi.
Abadi reportedly “objected strongly” when Soleimani criticized the reforms the Iraqi premier is pushing through—especially those which could harm former PM Nouri al-Maliki, who is close to Tehran.
Qom-Najaf split
Sistani’s growing frustration over Soleimani’s role in Iraqi politics represents growing differences between the clerical establishments in Iraq’s Najaf and Iran’s Qom, the world’s top two Shiite seminaries.
Asharq Alawsat’s source said Sistani has started to realize that Iran’s intervention in Iraqi politics on behalf of Maliki “has begun to affect [Najaf’s] historic role.”
The source added that Sistani’s action was evidence of “a clear dispute between the Najaf… and Qom Seminaries” in which Sistani and Khamenei are the highest authorities respectively.
According to the politician’s own analysis, Khamenei’s approach to reform in Iraq focuses on “the political dimension of the issue because the holding to account of [high level] corrupt [figures] will affect powerful Shiite leaders.”
“Sistani looks at the matter from a legal perspective; he believes that fighting corruption is a legal duty, regardless of the political consequences.”
The Iraqi PM on August 9 announced a raft of measures to reform the Iraqi state, two days after Sistani told him to “strike against corruption with an iron fist” as Iraqis mobilized for growing protests against the state’s inability to provide basic services.
Abadi’s seven-point reform plan—which was approved by the cabinet and parliament—calls for eliminating the co-vice presidential posts, one of which is held by Maliki.
Maliki also faces charges of being responsible for the fall of Mosul to ISIS in 2014 when he was premier, after a parliamentary report blaming him and top commanders for the matter was referred to Iraq’s judiciary on August 17.
However, Iran extended the embattled Maliki a show of support, hosting him for a visit to Tehran on August 19 during which he met with Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Roudao – Erbil
He said the president of a coalition of state law, Nuri al-Maliki in a televised interview broadcast Monday evening on 07/09/2015 number of Iraqi Satellite TV channels that “the law of the National Guard will not pass.”
Maliki said “I do not think that the National Guard Law will recognize, especially after holding the Doha conference, which cause severe allergic between all shades of the Iraqi society, because such a project needs a good arm and great revenues, and can not be all that the intervention of foreign hands negative trying symbols Guard Law National derailed. “
And follow-Maliki “should be popular crowd is the main base of the National Guard, Valhacd now. There are Shiites, Sunnis, Christians and even the Kurds, and approval of the National Guard Law in this period and after the Doha conference makes us imagine that there is a blueprint opens Trivl sectarianism put the ingredients, so it must We pay attention to each well of a national law enacted. “

In my last news letter I presented an article telling us that OPEC and GCC are ready to step in an help Iraq bound back out this economic crisis. So this week out pops an article telling us that they needed help and why OPEC decided to assist in reducing oil production to drive up the cost of oil, thus more income for Iraq the second (if not the largest) oil producer in the middle east. So will the Eurobond (sovereign bonds) help raise the needed funds to help Iraq out of this slump.
For all those creeps that keep whispering sweet words of nonsense in your ears that ISIS and DAASH are not much of an impact to Iraq, the RV and the the terrorists really don’t matter —  Really? Total nonsense and why would the bond market itself (Bloomberg report) be telling us this now about this impact if it just wasn’t true? I don’t understand all this foolishness from these so called intel “gurus”. I wish they would all just blow away when there is a heavy wind. See article below.
I also want to remind everyone too that just recently Iraq has stated that the revenue generated from the Tariffs along could rival the income generated from the oil revenues. Did you miss this one? So the article is not very correct in the Iraq has great potential in other areas too. They are moving to a multi-faceted economy as lessons were learned from the dropping oil prices. Good article and a good read.

Iraq’s effort to enlist bond investors in its fight against the Islamic State and a collapse in the price of crude won’t come cheap.
The Gulf nation’s first trial in the Eurobond market in almost a decade means it may have to pay “double-digit” interest to lure investors, said Morten Bugge, who helps manage about $2.5 billion of emerging-market debt at Kolding, Denmark-based Global Evolution A/S. Iraq announced a $6 billion bond program on Tuesday and may hold sales meetings with international investors as soon as September, people familiar with the matter said.
“It’s an oil exporter with ISIS in their backyard which weighs negatively on the bond sale,” Bugge, Global Evolution’s chief investment officer, said.
Iraq has been struggling to contain the expansion of the Islamic State’s foothold a year after the radical Sunni group took the nation’s biggest northern city, Mosul, and captured Ramadi, the capital of Anbar province, three months ago. The government is borrowing to close a budget shortfall as the fight against terrorism and oil’s 54 percent decline in the past year sap government finances.
Compounding risks for investors is a sell off in commodity-exporting nations following last week’s yuan devaluation, while the Federal Reserve prepares to raise interest rates from near zero, Bugge said. Middle East and North African countries are issuing bonds this year at the slowest pace since 2011, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
“I am sure Iraq would wish for better timing,” Bugge said.
Yield Spike
The yield on Iraq’s only international bond jumped to their highest this year, climbing 19 basis points to 8.73 percent at 5:26 p.m. in Baghdad on Thursday. The country had to seek $1.24 billion of emergency financing from the International Monetary Fund in July after oil prices slumped to their lowest in six years. Crude contributes about 40 percent of economic output.
“Iraq’s rating is very good in the current circumstances,” Majid Al-Souri, a board member of the Central Bank of Iraq said from Baghdad on Wednesday. “It has huge fortunes of oil and gas and it can’t go bankrupt,” which will reassure investors, he said.
Fitch Ratings expects the country’s fiscal deficit to top 10 percent of gross domestic product for 2015 because of lower crude prices, higher military spending and costs associated with the civil unrest.
Political Risk
Islamic State’s presence has put political risk in Iraq at the highest among any sovereigns it rates, Fitch said this month after it assigned the country’s bonds a speculative grade of B-. The assessment is on par with Cyprus and Jamaica and two levels above Greece and Ukraine.
The country’s foreign-currency reserves may drop to about $45 billion by the end of 2016, according to estimates by Exotix Partners LLP.
“Iraq is probably the most oil-dependent country in the world, so falling oil prices, really, really hurt this country,” Jakob Christensen, a London-based director at Exotix, said. Reserves “could drop significantly over the next two years if oil prices stay low and they don’t adjust,” he said.

Is Iraq Ready for the RV?
I included two articles below on this subject matter. Their words not mine. No hype or rumors just the facts.
These articles begin to address the many questions that many of us are having for some time now.  The questions are about the stalling of revaluation of the Iraqi dinar.
Who is stalling the RV and is it legal to do so?
So let’s use these two recent articles below to exam these questions.
In the first article a member of the parliamentary economic committee calls for the deletion of zeros and the issuance of Banknotes small (the lower denominations) to strengthen Baghdad – where a member of the Parliamentary Economy and Investment has called for the issuance of Banknotes small to strengthen the Iraqi dinar. Also it was announced in the parliamentary finance committee member Faleh in force, on the 28th of last August 2015, for delivery to the committee the public prosecution and the judge who corrupted files in the money laundering related to the currency conversion.
We witnessed an attempt for the resignation of the head of the Iraq Supreme Judicial Council Medhat_al-Mahmoud, only to be rejected by the council due to political obstacles. So they know who and why the corruption in this area of concern. But can they do anything legally about it without the laws in place?
So please read the first article below. From the first article we know that money laundering and corruption influence from the judicial system is one reason why we have not yet seen the deletion of zeros and the issuance of Banknotes small (the lower denominations). This is now confirmed by this article so NO MORE RUMORS on this subject matter. Iraq must pass legislation (call them reforms if you want) to deal with these situations in a legal manner first prior to continuing these projects. Mnt Goat has been saying this now for many months. Mnt Goat is right again.
The second article is talking about the lifting of Chapter 7 sanctions in June 2013,  and is “Iraq still subject to the separation of the seventh item in the financial affairs by the UN Security Council resolutions”?
In other words – what about having control over their own currency (is their currency not part of their wealth)? Why was this also not given back to them when Chapter 7 sanctions were lifted in June 2013?
So the lifting of Chapter 7 sanctions in June 2013 can be considered one of Iraq’s biggest achievements since the ouster of Saddam Hussein a decade ago, ALLOWING BAGHDAD TO REGAIN CONTROL OVER ITS OWN CURRENCY, (really? I don’t think so), oil and economy.
Chapter 7, imposed on Iraq by the UN Security Council after Saddam’s invasion of Kuwait in 1991, froze all Iraqi assets in international banks, ordering they be used to compensate victims of the aggression. Besides placing limits on USE OF ITS WEALTH, the sanctions also placed limits on the Iraqi military.
One of the biggest advantages of the lifting of the sanctions is the return of all frozen assets to the Iraqi government, estimated at $82 billion, according to Central Bank data.  Its return will not only revitalize the economy, it will strengthen the value of the Iraqi dinar and increase its purchasing power.
But TO THIS DAY IRAQ IS STILL FROZEN IN TIME and still using the post war provisional 3 zeroes notes, meant to be transitioned to the new, permanent currency prior to sanctions being lifted in 2013. So what happened?
These two articles below are yet another inquiry into this long standing question – of where is their currency?  It is being asked  by yet more and more parliament members. The articles are addressed to the CBI and are inquiring about the future timing as to when the CBI is going to meet all controls subject to Chapter 7 release meaning the one remaining obligation, that of release of their currency.
Folks this is important news for us. This article confirms to us exactly who is holding up the revaluation and the transition out of the provisional currency. Could the CBI want to RV and someone else like the USA or the IMF be holding them back? This is yet another question  to solve since the USA does have the power to hold back the rollout to the international exchanges and banks. If this was the case we might be talking about conspiracy stuff.
If you read this second article carefully, what the MP is saying is this – Why are you (the CBI and GOI) holding back the currency reform because of the necessity to create and legislate laws (calls them agreements from the translation) for the economy when it is very clear that release from Chapter 7 sanctions is also a release of the currency (meaning a release from the provisional currency). So the MP claims Iraq will still be bound by Chapter 7 until this last step is accomplished. The answer to this question from the second article is found in the first article about the necessity to legislate laws first to prevent money laundering and the prosecution of those involved.
So we know the delay in currency reform and the project to delete the zeros is noted clearly and there is pressure from members of parliament finance and economic experts who see the necessity to get the currency reforms completed since these projects can only help the dragging economy.

A member of the parliamentary economy calls for the deletion of zeros and the issuance of Banknotes small to strengthen Baghdad – where a member of the Parliamentary Economy and Investment has called for the issuance of Banknotes small to strengthen the Iraqi dinar.
Said Najiba Najib told all of Iraq  the more we were able to strengthen the country’s economy will be reflected on the value of the Iraqi dinar against foreign currencies, noting that “if what has been compared to the Iraqi dinar to the dollar, it is not weak equal almost to a certain extent.”
The main roads to strengthen the Iraqi dinar come through the diversification of sources of revenue because Iraq’s dependence on oil only would negatively affect the economy, indicating that “monetary policy in the country need to measures by the central bank, either through deletion of zeros or the issuance of Banknotes small because they are necessary in a manner consistent with the economy and fiscal policy.
The Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, said on 17 July, said that “the Iraqi currency reserved and have a great economic power, hard currency is because it is backed also that Iraq has the potential and capabilities and we have the blessing of oil,” he said. “There is no fear on the exchange rate of the Iraqi dinar compared the US dollar, and the dollar will strike prices manipulators with an iron fist.

Baghdad –
Member reported in the economic and investment commission in Parliament, said the representatives of the Central Bank of Iraq is still subject to the separation of the seventh item in the financial affairs by the UN Security Council resolutions.

Many of you dinarians have asked me why I spend so much time helping you to see clearly this RV process. Meinen Hubby too asks me the same question…..lol….I will address some of these questions now.
My only answer is this –
I have much expertise from prior military intelligence career that I can put to use to assist us civilians in seeing the truth in the RV process. I ask for no donations or money of any kind. I have no internet site for overhead nor do I spend time on a conference call (just social calls anyhow). Instead I spend my time writing a news letter for all my dinarian friends. It was  originally  for a few selected, close friends. Over time I saw the necessity to spread the truth and so many have asked if they can publish it to the general public and I agreed.
Why do we need to have to be helped to see the truth?
The main concern of mine is not that there is not enough good information in articles and news releases from Iraq for all of you fine dinarians to read and understand. You clearly do not need anyone telling you about this investment or so called intel providers. All the information you need is at your finger tips.
The main concern and problems stem solely from these so called intel “gurus” who fill you minds and hearts with their constant info and try to wrap you into their mode of thinking.
They are the source of the only problem I see with getting through to the truth about this investment. They have their own agenda. They know you are venerable. Whether it is selling dinars, having you donate to their site (making money off false intel), subscribing to an RV alert or subscribing to some post RV party (where they will take advantage of you as millionaires later). This is just to mention a few of their tricks. They already have your addresses and telephone numbers since you call into their Q & A sessions out of total ignorance of what they are really doing.
Folks the world is full of these charlatans and they are wolfs in sheep clothing and you are their prey.
Do you also see how many of them use prayer now to get to you. Something as sacred as prayer, shame on them……Are they really all so holy and caring….lol….?
Till next time…. Auf Wiedersehen!
Peace and Luv To Ya All.
