    I went into open a new LLC acct and was chatting w PB. I asked if he was a wealth advisor also. He is considered a jack of all trades and said when you invest another would take over. I mentioned that I have no money now but expect my currency to provide me with plenty. After we were done I was introduced to asst manager of branch who said do you have dinar? I smiled and said "now you admit this is real?"  She said they were told to lie and that is shows LIVE but transactions won't go through!! So all of what we have been told she admitted was real for zim, dong and dinar! She said it would change the world for all of us and would be glad to help me when it revalues. This was in Phoenix! Great day of positive news for us. We are so close.

    Highlights of TNT conference call.  Updated as the call progresses.
    Ray:  This is the "Truth or Consequences" call . . . because we are going to deal with some of that.  Have some good intel.  The President gave his last State of the Union.  I plan for this to be my last one too, to address an audience of this size.  My last big speech, not my last time talking to you.  After this, everything is going to be all downhill, happy go lucky.
    Stewardship:  Some of us have a firm Christian belief . . . that we have to atone for what we did in this life . . . and a judgement day where we will be asked, "What did you do?"  That's the responsibility of stewardship and leadership comes along with it.  When you have the responsibility to others, even if it fell in your lap. . .trying to live up to the responsibility of what is right.  To me that is stewardship.  
    The plan is what we are all about.  Any man can bring information, present the plan, when it's all about the plan.  It has been reported, Wiley Morgan and his minions, complaining - they are trying to stop the plan.  . . with all their efforts the plan continues on and . . . fellowship of that plan continues on.  Back in Nov. the numbers (connected to TNT) had dropped to 247K and now back up to 253K.  When plan is right, just can't stop it.
    Didn't do last two calls and revenue dropped for some of those folks.  
    Got to where they are impersonating me and other TNT members.  Everyone knows me as Rayren98, but the roaches on others boards are posing as Rayren89.    . . . I could go on and on, about (TNT) members being impersonated on other boards.  I wonder about the administrators on those boards allowing that to go on. . . you can't claim ignorance of this after today.
    We are not, "drink our Kool-aid," type of people.  Members know that.  You don't go to someone's house and slap them.  You can have an opinion as long as it is said with respect to others.
    GROUPS:  Tony was ratting some of you out.  Now it's come back again.  There are some good groups out there.  We closed TNT at 20K people and people begging every day to join.  We don't have to recruit.
    . . . some of you out there lieing, saying no chance to exchange your currency because we've had bankers telling members they will exchange their currency.  Not one of our banking sources ever said it has to be a group.  I am talking to the banks directly as well . . . bankers at high and low levels. . . not one has said you have to be in a group or they wouldn't deal with you.   I've heard nothing like that anywhere . . . may be possible that the group may have some favoritism, but why lie to folks & say they have to join your groups.
    INTEL:  Some people have bank appointments and they are for exchange because they are told to bring their currency.  Bank employees are disappearing.
    CURRENT WINDOW:   Ray:  Everybody locking onto the 15th.  Some saying Monday.  What's significant about the 15th?  UN rates come out again.  . . Could pop out 48 hours before or after the 15th. I am super excited! I am feeling Super Fantastic and Fantabulouser!!! 
    Ray:  Everyone pushing, wanting it done by the 15th, I'm holding with any minute, any hour, any day, right up through the 15th.  That's the expectation.  I feel good about it.  Using American time. - (could be the 14th)
     What more can we look for?  Signs of progress.  Exchanges taking place;  Iraq citizens getting their cards activated.  Even groups exchanging.  Those are all signs of progress.
    TNT Business: Ray: . . . speaking of overhead, not doing the last two calls saved considerably.  Already Blessed (Pam):   Pam saw an opportunity and took advantage of it. With Tony, Pam was needed for a lot of things on the board. With Ray she is not needed for that and she took a break.  Now she has gone to take care of someone, but she is still on the board.  Posts in chat.

    IRAQ:    Talk of upset citizens and rioting.  Talk, rumoring in the mosque, "saying look for it this week."  Ray:  Told the budget is to be published in the Gazette today. . .We wait to see.  ALL Iraqi's were to be paid at the new rate, but Ray has no knowledge that has taken place.
    • Announcement:  Ray:   Don't know there is going to be big announcement.  Some of world-wide events.  Some of us will say this is the RV we've been looking for.    
    • TV /Mosques:  rumors and whispering in the mosques expecting it this week. 
    INTERNATIONAL:    Ray:  Canada saying this week.
    • Rates:  New rates being seen on a need to know basis.  Bank people that have seen them before no longer can.  They have been shut out.    Rial:  Ray believes it will go at the same time as the other currencies. ZIM:  Ray: To my knowledge, 6 zeroes off the trillion dollar notes has not changed, but I have members who've said banks told them any current ZIM.  
    • UST:    
    • Banks:        Ray:  Some bank people surprised we have not seen it already.  Some working extra hours.  
    • About Open Mic:  Ray:  I do not give out intel on that call.  I do give out financial information.   OM is not an intel call.  I don't discuss intel on OM.  I might further discuss and break it down, but OM is just a group call where we hang out, play music, crack jokes and anything that is tolerable.      
    EXCHANGING:   If nothing is given to us.  If there are no 800 numbers released, Ray said you should already know the banks in your area that deal with foreign currency. Not dinars, nor ZIM specifically, but foreign currency.  Your first step will be to call the bank and make an appointment to exchange.  Strategy:  If you have more than the cap on say Dinar, you might want to put the overage into a partnership to A) be able to exchange it and not lose it and B) to have negotiating leverage.
    To get High Rate:  Ray said to negotiate. Don't be afraid to negotiate. If you don't ask, you can't receive. 
    RAY:  Closed with words of encouragement and the song, "I Believe."

Iran Sanctions Seen Lifted by Monday Once Nuclear Deal Verified, 13 JAN

by Jonathan Tirone    January 13, 2016 — 6:41 AM CST

Updated on January 13, 2016 — 7:46 AM CST

A decade of sanctions imposed on Iran’s nuclear program may come to an end by Monday, unlocking billions of dollars in frozen accounts and paving the way for a surge in oil exports from the Islamic Republic.

The International Atomic Energy Agency is expected to report on Friday that Iran has fulfilled its commitments under July’s nuclear accord with world powers, Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi said in Tehran. That would enable a joint announcement by Sunday implementing the deal and lifting sanctions, he said.

Iran’s foreign ministry on Tuesday sent its director of political and international affairs, Hamid Baeedinejad, to Vienna, where the IAEA is based.

The end to nuclear-related sanctions will mean that the Iranian economy is open for funds to flood in, with Iran set to get immediate access to as much as $50 billion of cash frozen in overseas accounts, according to U.S. Treasury estimates. Crude exports are expected to rise by half-a-million barrels a day within weeks.

While Iran says it will need $100 billion to rebuild its energy industry and another $29 billion for mining and steel, foreign investors are expected to return only gradually as they wait to make sure the nuclear deal holds. Diplomats left escape clauses if the accord is violated. Should the deal fail, sanctions could be reimposed just as Iran’s nuclear work could return to unchecked development.

“Iran has granted the International Atomic Energy Agency unprecedented access to make sure it is doing all the things it said it would do in this deal,” U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron said in Parliament in London on Wednesday. “We should enter into it with a very heavy heart, a very clear eye and a very hard head in making sure this country does everything it said it would.”

Friday would be the earliest date that IAEA inspectors could verify Iran has removed nuclear equipment and material from atomic sites, two diplomats with direct knowledge of the process said earlier on Wednesday. The IAEA press office declined to comment.

The comments about the deal’s implementation came only hours after 10 U.S. sailors were released by Iranian authorities after their boats drifted into Iran’s territorial waters. Even as U.S. President Barack Obama on Tuesday night praised the nuclear deal for averting a war with Iran, the Persian Gulf incident underscores lingering tensions in the relationship.

“The Americans cannot have trade relations with us, and so be it,” Araghchi said, adding that Iran understands that non-nuclear sanctions targeting terrorism and ballistic missile programs will remain in place. “Iran and U.S. relations will stay where they are -- the intention of this deal hasn’t been about trust-building.”

It was precisely because of that lack of trust between Iran and six world powers -- China, France, Germany, Russia, the U.K. and U.S. -- that negotiations to reach a deal took more than two years. In the end, Iran agreed to eliminate virtually all of its enriched uranium and dramatically reduce its nuclear capacity. In exchange, it will receive sweeping sanctions relief that reconnects its banks to the international financial system and allows oil and gas producers to boost exports.


TNT : 

Elmerf123456 : People hate silence. If they have less than 12 hrs they go into fruit loop mode. We are in a good place and it's the timing! Nothing has changed. You walk and rub elbows among the best knowledgable people out there.

Be the best you can be and stick like glue. Silence isn't negative. Silence is positioning.

Elmerf123456:  I want everyone to know I just got off the phone with Okie he underwent surgery very successfully but where they thought he was affected on his spine in four areas turned out to be seven.

It was good that he got these taken care of because it could've been crippling.

What he needs now is rest and to get his strength and for all of us to keep him in your prayers and he wanted me to tell everyone he loves you!

RnR:  Here's an interesting thought... last year, the 2015 Iraq budget was signed by the President on 2/10/15, and was "announced" as in the Gazette on 2/22/15, 12 days later, with a "publish date" of 2/16/15.

The 2016 budget was signed by the President on 1/3/16, and if we wait 12 days, that would be this Friday.

Assuming we have to wait 15, that would be on Monday, which is a USD forex settlement holiday, meaning no trades involving USD will be settled until Tuesday since the Fed is closed.

The rule is both country's central banks must be open to settle. So could this be a 3-day weekend since Iraq uses USD and IQD? We shall see!



IKO WARD - 8:45PM ET Hey guys, just happen to catch this discussion about Forex. What I was actually told back in Jan. of 2014 was if Forex hit 1085 we were on our way, but since that time additional factors appeared that were unknown to most people. The magic number is now a secret. But if I had to guess, I would put it at 1065.


DustyS:  Seriously--I played handball with my PB on Monday. He said banks are no longer calling people in at the exchange centers to set and wait--they have them on 24hr alert calls--have to report within an hour of being advised.

He feels this thing is teetering on the edge--said I will get a call at the same time the exchange centers get a call--but he feels COULD see this sometime this week--they have had meetings everyday on this--

He will not discuss anything with me over phone anymore--we will have lunch or he will stop by my home to talk--he is old friend and and lives not more than 3 blocks from me. He said alot more--but I have been asked to be --selective about what I say in public


Badscott54:  Refuse To Quit. Ever. The secret of champions is their refusal to quit trying. Futility is merely a feeling...conquer it and keep heading toward your goals. Create small successes when the large ones seem impossible. Even skyscrapers are built a brick at a time. Quitting...does not really give you what you really want. Every step away from yesterday is significant progress. Dr. Mike Murdock 1/13/16

tman23   We know that the optimum time for Iraq to lift the 3 zeros was at the start of the New Year (and this was in ink from Shabibi a few years ago). 

We know that lifting the 3 zeros deals with a new system of accounting...We have seen articles that the banks have been instructed to "switch over".  The GOI was h^ll bent on getting the 2016 Budget passed before the New Year...AND now has slow walked it to being published in the Gazette.  

Make no mistake that "most likely" the process to lift the 3 zeros is in motion and being used in internal accounting processes.  This Sunday we should see some positive affirmations...IMO.


TNT Call notes 13-January-2016

RayRen:  [TNT Rap]  Good afternoon, TNT super-fantastic family!  It is Wednesday, January 13, 2016.  We have thousands of listeners connected. [Audio checks]  This is RayRen98 here, taking you through this session. This is the ‘Truth or Consequences’ call, and that has a defined meeting.  We will deal with some that.  We also have some intel, and a lot of you listening.  I know some are here for the intel only, but you’ll have to listen ot this first.
Just as the President did his final State of Union address, I plan for this to be my last one, too, when I am addressing an audience of this size, to get you on the same page, and then we’ll hit the intel.  My last big speech, I believe, although not the last time I’m talking to you, but it will all be happily going downhill after this. 
Leadership and stewardship – some of us have  firm Christian belief, and some just have a belief that we have to atone for what we do in this life.  Some of us believe in a Judgment Day, and will be asked “What did you do?  I gave you access to My people.”  Leadership comes along with stewardship, though not necessarily the other way round.  If something falls into your lap, you need to live up to that responsibility.  I’m living up to the responsibility to be right and just to others.  That is stewardship.  If God gives you access to His people, you need to have stewardship, although I am not trying to lead people in any particular way, but I’m living up to my responsibility.
TNY is about a plan, not about a man.  It’s about the information that we receive and pass on to you.  Any man can present the plan, because it’s all about the plan, not the man. Of course it has been reported by various people who want to complain about everything that they are trying to stop the plan.  It’s not about the man, it’s about the plan, and that continues on.  The followers of that plan has grown.  It dropped down in November and now it’s back up to 253,000 people.  Is that about RayRen and his jokes?  Of course not, it’s about the plan.  You can attack the man all you want, but the plan will carry on.
We have changed from telling you everything to telling you the important things. 
We do have some cockroaches, and that is where the plan reigns supreme.  The cock-roaches have taken to imitating me and Tony and Already Blessed.  I’m RayRen 98, and someone on the boards is appearing as RayRen 89, creating doubt and misfavor, and what ever they can make up.  We have to look at these site.  At TNT, if you act up, we boot you out, and the same on OpenMike.  So I have to wonder at the character of the admins who allow this to continue on their sites.  Do you think they cannot tell the difference, to know that it’s not really me, Pam, Tennwolf, or Platinum.  I could go on naming members who have been imitated on those boards.  What is up with the admins there?  They could say they didn’t know, but now they do, because either you are on this call or your other members are listening now.  You won’t be able to claim ignorance after today.  Part of my job is to take away your excuse, so what are you going to do about it? 
There are some new sites that seem hostile to TNT at this point.  Those who wish to create sites, that’s fine, but why do you have to come into our territory, harvesting members?  What is that about?  Some members got banned here, and that is the first place these new sites look.  What is that about?  People get banned from TNT because they violated TNT rules.  They did something, they committed some transgression, and the mods followed through and they got banned.  It’s not because of their information – members can say what they feel, to a certain degree.  But you don’t go into a man’s house and disrespect him, or create chaos or confusion when there doesn’t need to be any.
The groups:  this might be the main reason people attacked Tony and bring down TNT.  He ratted you out.  I don’t need to do that because he did it, but it’s coming round again. Sure, there are some great groups, but we have to think hard on lying to people to get them to do that.  That’s got be the money making people do that, because if your deal was all that and a bag of chips, people would be beating down your door.  No one needs to say “If you don’t join a group, you won’t be able to exchange.”  We have talked to too many bank people who have said, “we will be happy to exchange you when the time comes” and not one has said, “only if you are in a group”.  So that’s why I call that a lie.  Sure, groups may have a favored timing or rates, but don’t say that if people don’t join your group, they won’t exchange at all.  People have called me in tears because someone is harassing them if they don’t join that group.  That is the lowest of the low, if you ask me.
Let’s move on to some intel.  We didn’t do the last two calls because the information was not satisfactory – it was sketchy and some things that looked promising didn’t show up.  Some were presented in the past, but you know what time and day it is. What has really happened/  What is still to take place?  I don’t have the answers but I do have information that may lead you down that road.
People have appointments today and tomorrow and were told to bring their currencies.  People had appointments last week to open accounts.  Some people have appointments with bank people and when they get there, those people have disappeared – some are transferred and some just leaving.  We’ll see what develops there.
Let’s go to Iraq.  There is talk of upset and rioting, and also information in the mosques saying, “Let’s look for it this week” and even throwing some rates around for them.  I’m being told the Budget is being published in the Gazette today.  Is that a fact?  I don’t know, but that is what I was told.  I report, you decide.  You can access the Gazette online, so check for yourself. I was told it would be published on Wednesday.  The coins are going out, as ‘fils’ or change like our silver change. 
In Canada, banks are at an all-time high saying ‘this week’.  In the US, we are hearing from bank people that some are surprised we haven’t seen it already.  Some are working extra hours.  EVERYBODY I’m talking to is saying “by the 15th”; we shall see.  Iraq is waiting on the Go signal.  Banks in the US are only showing rates to the people who need to see them, so on the ordinary screens they have been shut out.  They are still saying “any tie, this week” or “the 15th”. A few are already flipping over to Monday, but most are saying the 15th, which is when the UN rates come out again.  Those rates could pop out 48 hours before or 48  hours after the 15th.  It’s interesting to say the least, exciting to say the most.  I’m feeling super-fantastic as Tony would say, and ‘fantabulouser’ as I would say.
I just believe we are there, ladies and gentleman, friends and foes.  I will take a few question posted on the TNT site, and also those who have called in.
Q: Can you speak to the topic of exchange centers?  Can you use the number one if there exchange centers that cater to higher numbers, and number two  if you don’t know anything about these at all?  A:  Number two, sir.
Q:  You seem to be more conservative method of disbursing intel but a more liberal mode of dispensing that intel?  A:  A lot has changed.  Often Tony would say that there was a not a lot of intel, in situations that I chose to not do a call at all.  Because I know many rely on these calls, I decided to do one today in any case. 
Q:  This is a hefty one.  The more important point is “this RV will never be public because they can manage without and don’t want lots of rich people floating around the economy.”  Please tell me I’m wrong and I will go back to sleep.  A:  You’re wrong, back to sleep.
Q:  Have all Iraqis been paid at the new rate?  A:  I was told a few days ago that they might be, but haven’t been able to confirm this as yet.
Q:  Why do you give more info on the OpenMike and not on this call?  A:  I don’t give out RV intel on the OM calls, although we do a lot of education on OM.  TNT is the intel call, and if we need to discuss that intel and break it down, we might do that on OM.  That is just a group call where we have fun, crack jokes, play music, and discuss anything.
Q:  It seems many are not wanting to wait any longer, but are seeking to have the banks call them.  If the RV hasn’t happened, why are the banks doing exchanges?  Do they not want to miss those clients, or has the UST given them authority?  A:  I don’t know.
Q:  After 13 years, will there be any better signs of the RV NOT to happen?  A:  All w can look for is signs of interest, such as exchanges taken place, Iraqis getting paid, etc.  Even the groups mobilizing is a sign of progress.
Q:  Can you please review the steps one should go through right now if we are not given information from the banks.  A:  If I receive no information from the banks, although I will receive some information and pass it on to you, but if no info comes to us and we have solid intel that the RV is live, and that’s it, then you should already know the banks in your area that deal in foreign currency.  If it’s live and that’s all we can tell you, that’s who you call.  “Do you deal in foreign currency, and do you verify currencies on site?”  You should know that already so that you can make an appointment.  They don’t want you walking inot the bank to do a multi-million dollar exchange at the counter.  Call them and say you want to make a large exchange;  they will either schedule an appointment or give you a number to call (fi we don’t have an 800 number for you).
Q:  Will it be one rate or do we need to ask for a higher rate?  A:  Everything I just said applies to you, too.  If there is an 800 number, call that one.  If not, call the bank near you that does foreign exchange.  When you are in the bank, the one word to keep in mind is to NEGOTIATE.  “Ask not, receive not.”  Go for it!
Q: Where is a trusted source to buy Iranian rial?  A:  If that is going to be valuable in the future, any reputable dealer will sell you the right ones.  Look online, or on amazon.com. Right now it’s being sold as a collectible.
Q:  I have a  procedural question. My wife and I have 30 million dinar and our sons have 1-2 million each.  Those will more have more leverage, yet we have been told there will be a cap of 20 million dinar.  Would it make sense for me to exchange as an individual, and for my wife and sons to get together as an LLC and exchange the rest.  A:  If you are going for contract rates, that sounds like a good strategy.  If you are not trying for contract rates, it would be better to negotiate for your sons.
Q:  Plan A is to go to the grocery store, but because my vehicle is in the shop.  Plan B is to use my husband’s car, but it is out of gas.  In Plan C, get hold of another car.  Plan D is to go tomorrow.  This process seems more like steps;  I cannot explain it.  A:  Me, neither.
Q:  Is this really real?  I need some tangible proof.  What can you tell me?  A: I believe it is happening;  we just have to wait and see.  I believe in it, and if is doesn’t materialize, I am still holding currency that has some value, so I have not lost everything.
Q:  If the rial is set to go any day now, will the others go?  A:  Time will tell. 
Q:  We have gone from ‘any second’ to not even moving any more?  A: We are in a holding pattern;  the movement feels different, and my bank sources are seeing some movement but I cannot confirm their intel so far.  We are not going backward but forward.
Q:  Will all Zim notes be exchanged?  A:  Some bank people I’ve spoken to say that all the notes you have will be exchangeable, with six zeroes off the trillion notes.
Q:  What about 800 numbers?  A:  I think so, but might come at the last minute.  I will tell you ahead of time that the numbers are coming.
I will take some live callers, but if you come on the line to cry, whine and complain about the RV not happening, that is just a waste of time.  There is nothing I can do about that, so if that’s your plan, it’s a waste to do so in front of 20,000 people.  Let’s make this time as productive as possible…
646 caller:  Looks like we are coming to the end.  We are getting concerned that we are not hearing Pam’s voice.  I hope everyone remembers to share this bounty, and also that you have overheads, so I will make a donation today.  We continue walking to the light, to East.
RayRen:  Pam has put up with a lot on this ride, and sometimes we need a break. Pam saw an opportunity to do that and took advantage of it. She knows that I usually do things solo, while Tony is the opposite.  Pam was needed for Tony’s ways of doing things, and she realized that she is not needed for me.  As we explained to everyone, Pam just wanted to take a break after working 24/7.  It was Christmas time, and I know how to do this stuff.  Pam took a vacation and now she is off helping a friend.  Tony is also doing well.  Speaking of overhead, not doing those last two calls saved us considerably.
921 caller:  My pastor for 23 years used to say this all the time:  “Greater is to dream the dream, and greater still is to be at the end to say ‘the dream is true’.”  We are going to be very busy advancing these good things.  Bless you!  Vegas, Vegas, Vegas!
RayRen:  This is more than golf, Vegas is going to be a great learning event for financial information.
865 caller:  In the past we’ve been told there would be some sort of announcement.  With Davos next week, how likely is it that the RV happens this week with the announcement at Davos?
RayRen:  I don’t know that there will be any big RV announcements, although there might be announcements that refer to the RV.  Everyone is saying they want this done by the 15th or before… and that is two days from now. 
Caller:  You are speaking of the 15th in US time, right?  [Appreciation]  Vegas, Vegas, Vegas! and NEGOTIATE!
RayRen:  So many enjoy the information but very few support the site or call financially.  Many cannot give, but many can, but they are sucking on this information like leeches, without giving anything back.  We don’t need to be here, but we choose to do this, out of a sense of stewardship.  If the next call is THE call, we won’t need to deal with financial responsibility.  We hope this happens this week, but if we need to be here on Friday, we will be, continuing to hold on until that time. 
“Have I been a responsible steward?”  Ask yourself that question.  Until next time, I remain your humble servant…

 By the way Family the 50k is legal….it is legal and tender….in fact I’m going to ask my broker to go ahead and supply it so we can start selling it….the citizens and the banks have known since December 20th that the 50k was introduced to them…to both of them.... they actually distributed them on the 20th of December 2015 but they told the rest of the media and you and the rest of the international world….

Allak, he doesn’t know what he is talking about…we are not going to distribute them….nope…no 50’s and especially no 100k’s….and I’ll tell you want…the 50k’s we will postpone until sometime toward the end of January or the beginning of February….but this was done back in December Family…and when they said they were going to distribute the 50k’s later….they distributed them right underneath your nose…..why….well the 50k’s will pave the path to the change in the rate of the Iraqi dinar….as far as the lifting of the 000’s they will always do that right to the very end….in fact they will continue to that after they go into an RV…you know like us in the USA….but in all honesty we didn’t have a need to lift 000’s….why….our industrial revolution took us straight into the singles, you know the $1, $5, $10, $50 the biggest we had was the $100….the C-note but back then it wasn’t really prevalent as much as it was after we entered into the 1990’s.

We are still waiting for the results of the true calculations that are in the budget….the budget has the numbers…the CBI just recently today in fact came out and had the bravado to say we have a DEAL with the IMF….so because of this DEAL with the IMF….we now have new NUMBERS….The IMF said very clearly the calculations are done….the IMF said that the DEAL with Iraq has concluded….and all is fine and moving forward….DEAL….the DEAL…I mean they actually said that…How are you Article 8….I’m fine…thanks for asking….calculations are done…and all of these calculations can be retro’ed back to January the 1st according to the PM of Iraq, Abadi.


1-13-2015   Intel Guru Frank26   Yesterday the Prime Minister from Vietnam spoke about his currency...he said the move is only one of several measures to strengthen the role of the VN currency and steady the forex market...we are going to float...free like a bird...so what happened last week...the VND had two increments of growth...this is what a free float is all about...You know why else VN is doing the free float...well it is because we are trying to lift the 000’s from the streets...and you are worried the value is going to go down...I suppose you think the value of the IQD is going down too...NAM and many other countries are doing their own currency reforms...NAM is doing the same thing as Iraq…we know.

   We know that the optimum time for Iraq to lift the 3 zeros was at the start of the New Year (and this was in ink from Shabibi a few years ago).  We know that lifting the 3 zeros deals with a new system of accounting...We have seen articles that the banks have been instructed to "switch over".  The GOI was h^ll bent on getting the 2016 Budget passed before the New Year...AND now has slow walked it to being published in the Gazette  Make no mistake that "most likely" the process to lift the 3 zeros is in motion and being used in internal accounting processes.  This Sunday we should see some positive affirmations...IMO.

1-13-2016   Intel Guru Delta
   There is nothing wrong with this devaluation of the dinar...there’s a difference between the street value and the value within the CBI which is exactly one of the two compliances of the IMF in order to lift Article 8…The Finance Committee has CONFIRMED the presence of a project to reconsider the dinar exchange rate with the dollar with the government and the CBI...that is big...the CBI and the GOI together...that is a big step... understanding we got to do something about our exchange rate ...this is HUGE for them to admit yes we are devaluing...we are devaluing because we are forfilling the IMF regulations of what we have to do.  Look only the CBI and the IMF knows the date and the rate. 

1-13-2016   Newshound/Intel Guru BGG   [Guru wmawhite:  "Can you believe that very possibly within the next few weeks...all of you may have an entirely different life because your this investment may have come to pass."]  could be more like 7-10 days...

1-13-2016   Newshound Guru wmawhite
  Can you believe that very possibly within the next few weeks...all of you may have an entirely different life because your this investment may have come to pass.  From what we are seeing everyday, we have reason to believe that this is coming to us.

1-13-2016   Newshound Guru Kaperoni   Press Release:  "IMF Managing Director Approves a Staff-Monitored Program for Iraq"  Here is something really key...from a chart on page 32.  The CBI was suppose to accept Article VIII in 2012!  That was exactly when Shabibi was run off.  "October 2012   Article VIII acceptance"  Over 3 years behind schedule Quotes: "19. The government will maintain the Iraqi Dinar’s peg to the U.S. dollar..." "20.   ...Such a move towards acceptance of the obligations under Article VIII of the IMF’s Articles of Agreement will send a positive signal to the investment community that Iraq is committed to maintain an exchange system that is free of restrictions..."   IMO, though #19 says..."maintain the Iraqi dinar’s peg to the U.S. dollar" I do not believe that will be the case once they have moved to Article VIII...since this move will invite investment to Iraq (open the door to the new wild west of investment), it will create inflationary pressure. As a result, the dinar must float to compensate. In any event, once they are in Article VIII, the pressure created on Iraq's economy, will cause the dinar to rise in value (Balassa Samuelson effect)...so we should be very optimistic and excited that Article VIII appears to be coming this year.

UU6855 – “Quick Update” by Mnt Goat

Hello Everyone,

Our winter ski season is strong this year. Just recently we got blanketed with mounds of snow and the bitter January cold seems to have finally arrived. The tourists are very happy. Our little village is now like a gingerbread town and this too is part of why I enjoy Bavaria.

I just wanted to pop in today and give you fine dinarians a quick update. There is much news and it is all progressing nicely so relax. It is my opinion that Iraq is still moving to late January / early February target dates for some reason. We are also being told now they want to conclude ISIS fighting in region of Mosul by end of month too. WOW !

They have told us targets for HCL, General Amnesty law, Federal Council law also in this timeframe. Remember that even though we see signs that these laws may be already in the implementation stage they are not “official” until parliament passes them, Masuam ratifies them and they are posted in the gazette.

Just recently we learned about a “Comprehensive Reconciliation” law now being drafted by the council of ministers. This law also is expected to peep its head into parliament at the end of the month. This one we will have to watch carefully too.

NO Hype, NO Rumors just the FACTS.

Today’s News

Today is Wednesday January 13th   2016 and yes we are almost through the second week of the new year already and still no RV.   

Update: Currency Reform

So once again we are seeing more on the corruption of these auctions and the damage they bring to the monetary policy of Iraq. Last year the finance committee told us they wanted to end the auctions on Jan 1st. We did not see this happen. Now in this article below that they are suggesting once again they end the auctions and go towards the system of credit from the Central Bank to obtain money when needed instead of purchasing it outright. We know for a fact the plan is to move to this system once the lower denominations are launched.

So we can see them contemplating the necessity  and the desire to already move to this system. I feel that there are many events like this that are just at the edge and ready for the next move. All has been planned out and the stage is set. Kind of like also a horse race where all the horses are set and waiting at the gate. They just need the go-ahead.

I quote from the article below – “that influential people are the beneficiaries of the auction and sale of hard currency reserves of the Central Bank, while suggesting to the need TO REPLACE THE CURRENCY AUCTION OPEN LETTERS OF CREDIT.”

Special - scales News
Detection of the Integrity Committee member of the parliamentary Adel Nouri, on Monday, TO CONTAIN THE CURRENCY AUCTION OF THE MASSIVE SMUGGLING OPERATIONS OF STATE FUNDS IN ADDITION TO FIT ON FORGED BONDS, while noting that the Commission has developed community banks in its blacklist.

He said Nuri's / scales News /, that "the Commission will continue to investigate the same files that have been working on them in addition to open more of the other files of corruption."

He stressed that "the sale of the currency one of the important files that contain a large and massive smuggling to file state funds in addition to cash and bonds forged and counterfeit receipts laundering by some companies."
He added, "There are civil companies and banks has been a question mark over them, and these companies will enter into the" Black List "or the black list of the Commission", Mushir that "those companies will be submitted to the judiciary."

This next article is the latest on ability to pay government salaries. As you may know the employment rate would be very high in Iraq if it weren’t for government jobs. People rely on these jobs to feed their families and pay rents. So in the article below they are reassuring the people again to quite them down that they have alternative plans to pay them the salaries. One plan they suggest is paying the salaries half in dinar and half in US dollars. This plan of course would save them money since the US dollar is worth much more than the dinar. This also would be a disaster on the economy since it would be like letting the child go back to suck on the mother’s tit when you are trying to get the child off it and grow up. I think you all know what I mean by my analogy?

Again in the article below we are hearing from Hadi al- Tamimi. I have sent you many articles by this economist already. Many have talked about the currency auctions and all the corruption. Now he is talking about several proposals that could help the government through the economic crisis. Note he is  not in agreement with the plan to pay salaries in US dollars.

I quote directly from the article – “behalf of Hadi al-Tamimi, there are several proposals the government can take in order to get out of the potential financial crisis as a result of the continuing decline in oil prices, including:
1)the issuance of bonds to the public and
2)to activate the productive sectors and
3)support the private sector
4)as well as a review of the price of the dollar against the dinar”

Have we not seen already news about programs, laws or events in the direction of all of these proposals?

I just need everyone to get inside of the heads of these Iraqi economists to begin to understand them the way I do and they you can see where they are going (must go) with currency reform. It is inevitable!

I quote again from the article – “The Finance Committee HAS CONFIRMED THE PRESENCE OF A PROJECT to reconsider the dinar exchange rate against the dollar with the government and central bank”

I also want to emphasize the following tid bit from the article below. Remember this article just came out in the last couple days. So it is very recent news.

I quote from the article – “He added that it is STILL A PROJECT UNDER STUDY AND NO DECISION, where they are studying Is Iraq could reconsider in the exchange rate, and whether it is in the Government's interest or detrimental to the citizen”

Okay, okay so now reading this then how could any so called intel “gurus” possibly and even remotely believe that the dinar already RV’s and we are just waiting our turn to exchange?  Do you get my point. Let me explain it better to you now.

Article Begins



Proposed number of experts and specialists in the financial and economic affairs, up dollar exchange rate against the dinar to 200 000 dinars for $ 100, and the resort of the government to half the distribution of salaries of state employees in the currency of the dollar to absorb potential financial crisis in the country.

He said the financial expert on behalf of Hadi al-Tamimi, there are several proposals the government can take in order to get out of the potential financial crisis as a result of the continuing decline in oil prices, including the issuance of bonds to the public and to activate the productive sectors and support the private sector as well as a review of the price of the dollar against the dinar.

He said al-Tamimi told / JD / that since sales of Iraqi crude oil in the currency of the dollar means that the country's revenues in the currency of the dollar could increase its exchange rate against the dinar as a measure of my time to absorb the impending financial crisis, because there is a possible crisis in the event of low oil prices continued to below $ 30 because of adoption of Iraq almost entirely on oil revenues.

He noted that in the event of determining the dollar exchange rate to 200 000 dinars, compared to $ 100 would provide significant cash liquidity of the country, but this procedure can be temporarily any in the crisis period and after the improvement of the financial situation could reduce the dollar exchange rate against the dinar.
He called financial expert to invest part of the monetary reserves at the Central Bank in generating investment projects earnings to be another source of revenue for the state.

For its part, announced the economic and investment commission for parliamentary submit a proposal to the government to distribute 50% of the salaries of state employees in the currency against the dollar increased the dollar exchange rate against the dinar.

Said committee member Rep. Najiba Najib told / JD /: The Chairman of the Committee of Economy and Investment submitted a proposal to the government to cope with potential financial crisis, indicating that the proposal contains half the salaries of state employees distributed in the currency of the dollar with the increase in value of the dollar against the dinar to absorb the financial crisis.
She noted that the government will meet the Central Bank and the relevant parliamentary committees to agree on this proposal and its application.

The  finance Committee has confirmed the presence of a project to reconsider the dinar exchange rate against the dollar with the government and central bank.

He said the Commission's decision Haji Ahmed Rashid told / JD /: there is a legitimate taught by the Central Bank and the Council of Ministers, and the Finance Committee, to reconsider the dollar's exchange rate against the dinar.

He added that it is still a project under study and no decision, where they are studying Is Iraq could reconsider in the exchange rate, and whether it is in the Government's interest or detrimental to the citizen ?, noting that a review of the exchange rate would be the government's interest but hurt the citizens, as this will increase the exchange rate to runaway inflation, and an increase in commodity prices, stressing the need to take it into consideration and study of all aspects of the project, before making any decision.
Iraq is facing a financial crisis due to the sharp decline of oil, in terms of financial budget for this year with a total expenditure of more than 105 trillion deficit accounted for 22.8%.

So in the article below we are witnessing news of non-conformity in the bank practices and we see that Iraq still has a problem managing these banking practices. Something we see in our countries as common practices are not yet infused into their society.

So in the article below we are witnessing news of non-conformity in the bank practices and we see that Iraq still has a problem managing these banking practices. Something we see in our countries as common practices are not yet infused into their society.

Remember it is the CBI that must come up with procedures and enforcement to regulate the banking laws. This is all just so knew to them still. Can anyone in Iraq do anything good out of moral fortitude for the good of the country as a whole without having a law jammed down their throats to make them do it? 

I quote from the article below - "if the banks have done to provide services to customers in order to attract this money saved, it will contribute to move the Iraqi economy," noting that "the central bank has a plan in order to attract these funds for the purpose of investment and moving the wheel of the Iraqi economy."

So what is this plan?

We have seen some of the indicators already of the plan such as the “National Unity Cards”, the currency SMART cards. Through these systems the government allocations are deposited into their accounts automatically. Now they have to get them to trust the banks so they don’t rush and withdraw it all as soon as they get it.

We are also seeing merchants coming online in the marketplace where they can now accept these smart cards to make purchases directly without having to get cash first. Something we also take for granted here in our countries they do not fully have capabilities to do on a large scale. But all this is coming and with 35,000,000 citizens it will take time. 

All of these banking practices will help in the final rollout of the lower denominations. Can you see it now?
We reviewed these implementation steps and mechanisms with you in my last couple news letters, as given to us in a lovely article?  See how this all fits together in these articles going forward. It is all part of the educations process. You may not entirely understand it and see the reasons for it but believe them when they tell us they need to be educated and get out of the stone age when it comes to currency reform…lol…lol….

Update: Needed Laws

Next I present an article that is telling us many things about the HCL law. Remember in my recent past news letter I talked in detail about the HCL law and how, if “officially” passed in parliament, it can mandate the launching of the lower denominations and a rate of $1.17. This can happen  since the HCL payment to the people must be set in some standard of wealth distribution to the people. If the constitution did not specify a rate in its mandate, then the politicians could technically play a game with the payouts and pay substantially less to the people using the toilet paper valued currency they now have in circulation.

So now the there is more intent to bring the HCL law to parliament when the new sessions opens on Jan 19th.

What else is it telling us?

It is telling us why it was held up and I quote from the article – “the law to withdraw from the ministry to add paragraphs suit the current phase, as shown committee of parliamentary power, oil and gas law”

So they had to withdraw the HCL from parliament to add paragraphs to it dealing with the power of the Interior  ministry (by the Interior Ministry Act) which will administer the HCL provisions in the future. Now they are telling us it is ready for a vote and expected to be approved (passed).

I quote from the article below –“ the most prominent laws that the Commission intends to approval, at a time when the House resumes the second legislative term sessions, on Tuesday of next week, corresponding to January 19. “

Funny I thought this new session beginning in 2016 is the Third not the Second legislative term, as they have told us in so many previous articles. So I believe this is a mistake by the author of this article. Just so you don’t wonder.
