I request for the love of God for all phone calls to cease related to the KCMania and Morgan resignation.  I do not know why they left the circuit so abruptly and I hold no ties to them whatsoever.


MNT. GOAT UPDATE: Title: “The Saga to obtain a Technocratic Government Heats Up”, 4 APRIL

MNT GOAT NEWS LETTER           Edition: UU6920                     Dated: April 4, 2016
Title: “The Saga to obtain a Technocratic Government Heats Up
Hello Everyone,
Our main focus right now should be in PRAYER.  There is much celebration forecasted in the future for what is about to happen in the dinar community but do not be fooled by these false prophets bringing false news, false hopes and bearing false gifts.  
Right now we are soooooooo close to the end of this RV saga, we all should be praying, praying and praying more that nothing goes wrong to stop the plan they have been moving towards now since the fall 2015 and that is about to conclude. It is almost at the conclusion. So much has happened since then and for us in the western society we only get trickles of news on what is really happening in Iraq. This is all we can go on. It is not much but it is mostly factual if you are smart enough to piece it together and see the picture.

There are also personal contacts in Iraq but you have to chose them wisely and have close associations with these people. You have to know them well. It is not just a matter of trusting their information because they happen to be in Iraq but knowing that they are not also hyping it up to make themselves sound important. Remember some of these so called contacts are just average people like you. They want to get all hyped up too and need the rush every weekend.
There is also seeded contacts in Iraq, put in place to feed the western society dinar investment communities, with intentional false information to create confusion, as we have seen many have been very gullible enough to fall for this bad information and pass it on to their listeners. Shame, shame, shame on them since we all should know by now (after 5+ years) to sense this false information and be aware of it regardless of how strong and how convincing it may sound.
You see these so called intel “gurus” can not piece it all together and this is their weakness. They do not remember or even know all the facts so when this intentional “bad” information filters through to ignore it and realize just how false and erroneous it is. This has been my continuous point of contention all along with many of these people. The fact is they hurt the dinar community more than they help it.
From my perspective this is VERY irresponsible on their part know darn well what they are doing yet do nothing to correct their behavior.  Pay attention!
So what is our news today? Right now the picture is looking really good from my standpoint and I will explain all this to you in today’s news letter.
NO Hype, NO Rumors, just the FACTS.

Today’s News
Today is Monday April 4th  2016. Still no RV.  Sorry Charlie you got fooled again this weekend…lol…..lol…shame on you!  
Rumors once again that there would be an RV this weekend? Really? I can absolutely, without a doubt tell you that there WAS NOT this past weekend and the IQD IS NOT YET INTERNATIONAL!
Having said all this I also want to add I checked in with my Iraqi CBI contact over the weekend. I will tell just what I was told and no more, no rumors, no hype and just the facts.
I was told that there is a main effort now underway to reform the CBI and bring back Dr Shabibi as the formal head of the controller for the national bank. To me this was nothing new since I was told this by this very same contact over a year ago. But this news was a bit different this time.
They told me this effort has been underway now for over 3 weeks and is now at a point they must make this change. I was told the plan is now to have Shabibi in a news conference within the next couple days. He will announce his return and make a broadcast speech to the nation and global community. So we should expect articles and maybe even a broadcast of this on the major news channels such as CNN or FOX news.  
Has Ali al-Allaq (proxy CBI governor) resigned?

YES and officially over this last week the CBI has not had an acting governor.
So what will happen once Shabibi is back within the CBI?
Recap back to 2015-
I was told that the plan is to begin the launching of the lower denominations almost immediately, something that was planned for and was supposed to happen in early December of 2015 and we were supposed to have the final RV by the end of 2015. This is factual news. We know this did not happen then and has been still on the plan since only a new target was moved out.
So the good news is this current information confirmed all the news we heard back then, if you remember all the articles back then on this topic the news was very bright and promising. I am also hearing they are pushing strongly to adhere to their mid March to mid April target timeframe for the currency reform (the RV window I gave you over two months ago) and moving to Article 8 of the UN charter. Today is April 4th already and so there is less than 2 weeks remaining to complete this task. I am hearing they are going to make a major push this week and this week may go down in history.
Am I calling the RV for this week?

There is a YES and NO answer to this question. So pay attention to my answer closely!
NO! As I said to everyone many times the launching of the lower denominations is not the “full” RV. It is simply an adjustment for inflation. (Sort of speaking to test the waters for the full RV)
Will all of us so called “internet group” be able to exchange prior to the RV with the $4.25+ rates ?  

I am hearing this is up to the USA treasury (and other nations) in what they plan to do in their country however they can not allow any of these exchanges until Iraq launches the first step of the plan (launching the lower denominations).   
YES! As I said to everyone many times they probably will NOT place the new rate of .90 to $1.14 on the global currency exchanges right away and will delay this task until the “full” revaluation occurs. In the meantime they may take advantage of this timeframe to 1) pass these last remaining pieces of legislation 2) exchange the internet groups before the general public gets it (meaning moving it to the global exchanges for investors and hedge fund managers. There are many reasons and advantages for doing this and if you have been paying attention to many of these recent dinar conference calls you should know this part by now and so I will not address many again today. One of the reasons is to force Iraq into passing these last remaining needed laws. How long will Iraq want to wait for a “full” revaluation once they understand and see the benefits of the launching of the lower denominations and a rate equalized to the USD? WOW! I am talking about the perspective from the average citizen and not the corrupt leaders. Remember Sadr has their backs and will move also on this effort carefully, if he has to.
So be aware this new technocratic government has many purposes. One of which is to seat also a technocratic, skilled person in charge of the CBI. I was told when this happens the first line of business is the way overdue currency reform. Having skilled members of Abadi’s cabinet will also end the stalling of the needed legislation.
Everything could move very quickly once (and if) all the parts are put in place. We are so VERY, very close to the final conclusion of all of this RV saga. I know some of my news letters may have sounded gloomy in the past but I can only relate to you the truth as it comes to us. I refuse to lie and hype everyone up needlessly. So now if you want to get excited all I can say is get that bottle of champagne in the frig and cool it down. We are that close.
Update: Gov’t Corruption
Like I keep emphasizing that Maliki and his goons must be brought to justice soon. This is a mandate by the UN and USA. Seems they still don’t have the political fortitude to do it and it continues to hurt the political process. They can’t even pass Amnesty and the needed Judicial Reforms, which would accelerate process and allow this to happen.
Many still seem to believe this is not important even after all the articles and what we are now witnessing first hand with forming this new technocratic government. Many still have to open their eyes and learn truly what is happening in Iraq. Read my lips – THEY WILL NOT ALLOW MALIKI AND HIS GOONS TO RUN WILD IN THE MIDDLE EAST. So what does this tell you is going to inevitably happen to them? Like animals in a cage waiting to be taken to the slaughter house,  they can growl and make all the noises they want but their day will come soon (and they know it too but refuse to face it).  
So let us do just that today. Read the many articles below -their words not mine!
NO Hype, NO Rumors, just the FACTS!

Maliki is responsible for the fall of Mosul as well as the Speicher massacre, Adil Nouri says

BAGHDAD — A Kurdish member of the Iraqi parliament has sent a letter to the Iraqi prime minister stating that prosecuting Nouri al-Maliki, the former Iraqi prime minister, will lead to solving the crises in Iraq.
Adil Nouri, the Iraqi MP, has stated in a letter he has sent to Haidar al-Abadi, that Nouri al-Maliki is responsible for the fall of Mosul into the hands of the Islamic State (IS) militants.
“We have solved and prepared the case, and you need to send the case to the court for trial,” reads the letter.
The Iraqi MP believes that Maliki is accountable for the camp Speicher massacre in Tikrit on June 12 2014 where IS killed at least 1,700 Iraqi air force cadets. Maliki is being blamed for the disappearance of $500 billion as well.
Arresting and prosecuting Maliki for corruption and other crimes will put an end to corruption in Iraq, the letter added.

Update: 45 Day Deadline for Technocratic Gov’t
In today’s news letter let us take look at the status of this ongoing saga to form the new Iraqi government, a more technocratic government.
So lots has happened since last Thursday, when the prime minister Abadi submitting his list of candidates to parliament.  Remember he wanted another month for this process, however Sadr forced him to abide by his original promise to have this completed by month’s end. What is then the quality of the candidates? Was it a list rapidly put together? Did it still contain sectarian candidates?

So what do we know, from the recent news from Iraq, (from legitimate news media sources and not some “secret” sources of propaganda news) is that parliament was very dissatisfied with the list of candidates given to them by the prime ministers Abad last Thursday. Why?
They were dissatisfied because:  
1) the candidates were supposed to be experienced technocrats and many were not.
2) the articles below also tell us that the names were prematurely leaked out to the news media and this was not supposed to happen until 72 hours after the candidates were presented to parliament and eligibility status determined.
3) they feel there is still, sectarianism, favoritism and corruption involved with the Dowa party in the selection process and way the entire process was handled.
So where do they go from here?
So we basically see parliament being “pissed” off over this entire process. This is why they now are demanding that Abadi be separated from the Dowa party and do his job independently or suffer the consequences of a possible “no confidence” vote. This is why nearly 80% of parliament refuses to vote on the candidate list presented to them on Thursday. See articles below.
I have to tell you we do not want a “no confidence vote” to happen. This would be in large a disaster to the entire government reform process underway. It may also lead to the strengthening of the Dowa party. It may also lead to a coupe. Brett Macgork envoy of US President Barrack Obama, the international coalition will arrive in Baghdad today to hold consultations and meetings to prevent the ousting of Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi.
In my opinion what they must do is find a way to bring to justice these high ranking gov’t officials on the corruption list and bring them to justice, thus getting them out of the process altogether. If not this corruption will continue.  Trust me it will continue and go on and on..
These are the same trouble makers all over again attempting to gain control of the gov’t.  They are attempting to instigate some way of gaining power once again.  

Parliament adjourned last week until today. The House Speaker Salim al - Jubouri announced today, during the parliamentary session to send the names of candidates for the ministries in the private MPs mail, and will be discussing names within the relevant committees.   Let’s wait and see what happens at this time.

The pressure is now very strong from many sectors to dissolve the Dowa party and/or move  the prime minister out of the party so he can work more independently and do what must be done to institute the needed reforms for Iraq. But remember if Abadi moves out of the Dowa party they will try to dissolve the government and push a no confidence vote on Abadi since they feel Abadi is their man. I do not believe any of these tactics will work, so relax. Abadi is going no where, except maybe out of the Dowa party, since he has strong support from the USA, GB, France, etc..

Update: Fighting Corruption
The situation below in Iraq with the ministry of education is exactly what these reforms are intended to do. The PTB will not turn on the currency if the money is only to go to corrupt officials and not for the benefit of the country as a whole. We have heard claims from the GOI there is no money to pay out on HCL. Really? We have seen consistently the GOI is late in the monthly allocations of retirement benefits and employee pay. I wonder why? Of course I say this sarcastically. We all know why Iraq has such a deficit. It is not just due to the war with ISIS or the reduction in oil revenues. We can see where all the money has been going.
So I luv this article as it is telling so much.
What I am telling you is not my OPINION but mandates. Can you also see when Zindane began this effort?

I quote from the article below – “There are a lot of investigations Harald inspector general's office over the last year and beginning of this year”.
So this is at about the time of Abadi’s reforms when this project began. Why is Abadi implementing all these reforms?

I just told you!  They are MANDATED by the UN (IMF) as part of coming into compliance for Article 8. As a member nation you can’t have a FREE FOR ALL with the general funds of a nation. Why give them this tremendous wealth when it is only going to go in the pockets of the few already rich politicians. This is not a democracy but the same old same old as with Saddam. There has to be some level of accountability and responsibility with the new government. Now the question is - can do this with all the ministries with this new “technocratic” government concept?  This is why they are implementing these reforms if only they can get this new gov’t seated and do it correctly. It all ties together as to what is the hold up in the RV. Can you see it?

Iraqi security forces vehicles move toward the town of Hit during a military operation, in west of Ramadi, …
BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraq's counter-terrorism forces backed by army troops and U.S.-led coalition air strikes advanced towards the western town of Hit on Thursday in an attempt to dislodge Islamic State militants, the military said.
A senior officer from the counter-terrorism forces, the elite U.S.-trained units which led the recapture of nearby Ramadi three months ago, said his troops were one kilometer from the town center, 130 km (80 miles) west of the capital Baghdad.
The recapture of Hit, strategically located on the Euphrates River near Ain al-Asad air base where several hundred U.S. forces are training Iraqi army troops, would push Islamic State further west towards the Syrian border, cutting a connection to the northern town of Samarra and leaving Falluja their only stronghold near the capital.
Baghdad has had success in pushing back the militants in recent months and has pledged to retake the northern city of Mosul later this year, but progress has often been fitful. Another officer, on a frontline less than 3 km from Hit, said the operation had begun at 0600 (0300 GMT) and was progressing swiftly.
"There are some IEDs along the movement but it's still good to go and we are moving," he said by phone.

In a statement announcing the advance, the military said the offensive was backed by airstrikes from the Iraqi army and air force as well as the international coalition fighting Islamic State in the areas of Iraq and neighboring Syria where the militants declared a "caliphate" in 2014.
The statement called on civilians in Hit, thought to number in the tens of thousands, to move away from Islamic State positions: "Those targets will be destroyed".
The jihadists have regularly used civilians as human shields, a tactic aimed at slowing the advance of Iraqi forces and complicating air strikes essential to the ground advance.

Most importantly please, please, please let’s not forget to keep praying for the success of THESE IRAQI AND COALITION SOLDIERS. I believe our prayers are in part some of the acceleration of the process we are now witnessing.  
Remember too to pray to the princess of peace – Our Blessed Virgin Mary. She has the ear of Christ and she can intercede in heaven and bring us the peace we all desire here on earth. We can not do it alone. I believe that if we all make this our daily prayer you will see change. It is already working even in the short time since I have been publishing this prayer section. It does not matter what religion you believe, if you pray then to your oven beliefs entity it is still the same powers and good for all of mankind. Ultimately it is all the same God anyhow.
“Lord, protect Abadi and all who stand with him in righteousness, the Iraq and coalition soldiers who are fighting the good fight against terrorism, that they would be shielded from the enemy and would be victorious against them in the battle for Mosul! We ask that the victory comes swiftly and healing of the Iraqi peoples and all whom have been effected by these evil doers can begin!
We pray for the speedy process of all reforms against gov’t lead corruption and that all those responsible in the past are brought to justice. 
We pray for currency reform, the full implementation of  the Iraqi economy to full  international status and the bringing of prosperity and wealth to its people“  Amen!
Till next time…. Auf Wiedersehen!
Peace and Luv To Ya All,

Highlights of TNT conference call.  Updated as the call progresses.

Ray:  Winston/DC is celebrating a birthday today.  You can post to him in the forum.  
An International currency has stages in that process.  This week there is some eye-brow raising as to why we have not seen that as a public reality.  That's all I can say on that.  Maybe this week some other things will tie it all in.

CURRENT WINDOW:   Ray:  How much longer?  Hours or days.  No back wall date at this point. I will look to today and then tomorrow and day after tomorrow.  As far as I am concerned, we are right on it. . . It puzzles me why people would think this would go into June.

800 # Rumor is that Ray has them.  Ray emphatically denied this.  Ray "I do not have any 800 numbers to give out at the moment. . . . For Canada, there are 800 numbers for you.  Canadians you can smile. . . If they give them to me I will let you know."
IRAQ:    Parliament voted on Saturday on the 2007 budget and they threw in the kitchen sink.  It was done to clear the books. There actions were made public.  As was first thought they did not vote on Abadhi's nominations.  Maliki's supporters are attempting to block certain things.  Meeting today is to vote on the nominations by Abadhi.  Ray:  Political turmoil going on over there that may hold things up a bit.  Maliki is trying to save his neck.  Our understanding is everything is wrapped up, signed, sealed and delivered and the turmoil going on right now is just a hindrance.  But, where is the rate change?  Where is the RV?
  • CBI     
    • IMF    
    • Rates:  ZIM:  Ray:  Still nose bleed high.  Dong:   Looks like base rate will be .47 and $2-$3 rate could be contract.  
UNITED STATES:    US has sent a Presidential Envoy to help Iraq with their internal struggles.
    • UST:    
    • Banks:    Two notices were issued over the weekend telling people to come in on Monday. One was issued on Sunday reminding them to come in on Monday.   Ray:  Some banks were telling people on Friday to hold onto their dinar and come back on Tuesday.
    • Exchange Centers can either be bank branches or store fronts like Travelex or other travel type currency exchange establishment.  It is expected that only banks and their exchange centers will have the contract rate, but Ray suggests calling the commercial travel currency exchanges when the time comes.  
    • TAXES:  Still plan on setting aside 50% until the tax information is settled/known.  Don't stick it in a shoe box.  Just designate it for possible taxes but put it to work earning interest, CD, money market where risk is minimal.  Keep it under the umbrella of trust or whatever asset protection plan you use.
    • Donations:  No limit how much you can donate, but there is a yearly limit how much you can write off for taxes.
EXCHANGING:  Different banks may have different procedures.

CE a Single Note:  Ray said he's heard it might lock you into that rate for a later exchange.  Ray:  Whether it holds true or not, I don't know.  I don't think it will affect the rate at your appointment.  If your in a group you need to ask the group leader (about exchanging a single note and it's affects on the group exchange)
WARNING: Email's going around that only their group can get you exchanged and or exchanged through the IMF.

Ray:  Don't fall for this.  If it comes your way report it.  Be your brothers keeper.  Look out for the one who can't see it.  You can do it anonymously or sent it to me.  I'll do it.
Q & A: 

Q. - Shelf Trust?   Ray:  Said I would rather go with the POD on the account because of the unknowns of the banks shelf trust.
Q. -  What would happen to a structured payout if the bank failed?   Ray:  I would assume they would move the payout to another bank.
Q. - This site coming down after RV?    Ray:  Shortly after the announcement. It won't be here 30 days later either.
Q. - Re: Transferring property into a Trust.  Do as a quit claim or sale?  Ray:   A regular sale could produce tax implications, sales tax, etc.  I would need to review and look at it again.  Been sometime since I've been involved with that.
Q. - How do you close out a trust?   Ray:  File a 1041 form and check box that says, "last filing."  Physically, you deplete all the assets in it, but you still need to do the last filing.  
Q:  Are waiting on laws passed on Saturday be published in the Gazette?  Ray:  I don't know.  


Ray:  Looking for this today, tomorrow because I don't know what Iraq might be doing.  Could be public release today.  Private exchanges have taken place in the past.  Would not surprise me if some banks do more private exchanges today.  I'm not on a list for something like that, but happy for those who are.
Is it guaranteed to happen?  Of course not.  I get information on what people intend and plan to do.  Until it gets done you won't hear it from me. How do I know it won't change?  It has in the past.
All we can do in the meantime, in between time is to hold on, believe or not.  We'll be back if there is a need for us to come back.  A tweet or a text message.  (played "I Believe")
TONY:  Tony can receive cards, notes, magazines, soft cover books, but No food.  Address is in the forum where to send it.

After the music:

RAY:  I forgot to put in my opening monologue that services are being restored over there.  Electricity up for more than four hours a day.  Young people are into electronics the same way the young people are in the west.  


TNT Call notes 4-April-2016

RayRen:  [TNT Rap] [audio checks]  Good afternoon, TNT super-fantastic family!  It is Monday, April, 4 2016.  It’s DC Guy’s birthday today, celebrating more wrinkles!  If you didn’t get the chance, there is a message in the forum that I’m sure he will read at his leisure.
This is RayRen98 here, working the controls and going over the information as best we can.  So much has taken place this week.  Some are things you are not supposed to know and a few things I shouldn’t’ have told you!  They have to be direct with me and say “don’t put this out”, not leave it to me to work out it’s so advanced I shouldn’t put it out there. There are some stages and developments with the process, and this stage, this week, there is some eyebrow raised as to why we haven’t seen that as a public reality.  That’s all I can say on that.  We are at that least stand now, and maybe we will have the steps so that we can see something this week.
Let’s go to Iraq.  They have an international currency. Parliament met on Saturday and voted on the 2007 Budget, which had everything in it including the kitchen sink.  That was done to clear the books.  There are no more decisions to be made, no more things to be voted on.  It may be the Cabinet appointments are the hindrance, and I thought that was taken care of on Saturday as well, but with more information we found that was still incomplete.  If that is not taken care of, we learned that Maliki’s supporters remaining in the government structure, and they are attempting to block certain things, even in their meeting that was held today.  This meeting was to vote on the names submitted by Abadi and to complete that.  So there is some political turmoil over there than may be holding things up a little.  A presidential envoy was sent to assist with the situation – not President Obama himself, he didn’t need to be there for that situation, to help them cast their votes appropriately.  Maliki was trying to save his neck, and that’s understandable, but now Sadr is saying that anyone who votes against Abadi’s candidates should be exposed because they are blocking progress to economic reform.  All that could have some impact on the RV. They need to be of one accord.  We hope to hear something later this evening with the outcome of meetings today.  Nothing else needs to be done, though – that’s our understanding, that this is wrapped up, signed, sealed, and ready to be delivered.  However, it could be this turmoil is a temporary hindrance.
In the US, some bank people got notices to come in on Saturday and on Sunday to make sure they are at their battle station on Monday morning. Either they are expecting a lot of us walking it the door today, or they want all hands on deck, in position, for today or tomorrow.  Some banks were telling people on Friday to hold onto their dinar and bring it back on Tuesday.  So some banks were told to come and be ready to do exchanges, and some people are being told by some banks to hold onto their currency and bring it in to the bank on Tuesday.  They speculate in the banks that they will be exchanging for us this week.  From the Iraq side, it’s all done – but where is the rate change?  That has not taken place 100% in public yet.  So we have a little while longer;  it could be hours or days, I’m not sure until we get more information about what’s happening over there because I firmly that we won’t go in public before then.  The private deals can continue.
I think it was accidental, but some rumor got out that I have 800 numbers.  I DO NOT.  No bank has given me 800 numbers nor have I been asked to sit on them for a while.  I have learned that there are 800 numbers for Canadians, and if they give me those, I’ll let  you know what they are, the moment I learn what they are.  Be happy to know thee exist, or that is the information coming to me.  Canadians, you can smile!  Americans, you can smile, too, but we don’t have 800 numbers yet.
That’s it for intel, I think.  Let’s see what the members want to ask.
Q:  Why is it thought we will be penalized for exchanging one note before appointments? 
A:  How long have you been involved?  At one point, because of the groups and the contract rates, some people were told that they would be locked in at whatever rate they get for the one note.  Talk to your groups about that.  It would make no difference to the bank.  I don’t know why, but that was the message I was given a year or so back.  It might just hve been a fear tactic to keep everyone in check. It came up as a possibility and that’s why we offer training on how to deal with that.  Therefore, it would not be a problem for us.  I offered that training on OM and brought it over to TNT.  If that becomes a reality, we know what to do.
Q:  When you create a trust with family as trustees, who collects salaries?  What work are they doing?  A:  They are doing administrative work, and that is what they get the salary for
Q:  You mentioned you like PODs over a shell trust at the bank.  What is your reasoning?
A:  We talked about PODs until you find out what the shell trust will do for you, and one benefit is to make sure the correct people benefit if you have an accident or whatever before you get everything set up.  If that is the only benefit, it would be simpler and easier to put a POD on your own personal account, because the benefits and features of a shell trust are unknown.  If it’s simple, not too much red tape, then go for the shell trust.  Otherwise, stick with a POD.
Q:  Will the banks have the same rates as the exchange centers?  A:  What do you mean by an exchange center?  If the bank is telling you to go to a particular location where they are dealing with large volumes, then that is no different than going to an ordinary branch of the banks.  Some banks have exchange centers for higher-volume customers, and the rates will be the same as at any other branch of that bank.  If you are talking about normal currency exchange dealers like Travelex, then you may see different rates.  I don’t think they will offer contract rates.  When the time comes, call and ask!
Q:  With March in the rearview mirror, is there another date we can look towards?  A: Yes:  today, and after today, tomorrow.  Looking day by day;  we are right on it.
Q:  Can you indicate what you thought the rollout would be compared to the actual rollout we are seeing today? A:  I’m still in wait-and-see mode for what’s going on and how soon
Q:  Are there any changes in procedure now that we are in the second quarter? 
A:  Nothing jumps out on the procedural end, in terms of what we are adjusting for.  There might be some slight number changes, but everything seems to be status quo.
Q:  It puzzles me why some still think this is not going until June.  What and why? 
A:  I don’t know – no one has given their reasoning on any particular date, be it this week, this month, this year or whenever.  When I give a date, I give my reasons.
Q:  I heard that the ISIL has trillions of dinar and governments are worried if they cash in, they will buy weapons.  A:  ISIL and anyone else up to no good might do that.  To fight a war, you need money.  They probably see this as a financial salvation just as much as we do.  The powers that be are trying to curtail that as much as possible.
Q: Do you know what guarantees if we have to take a structured payout, especially if a bank defaults?  How can we be sure our money will be safe.  A:  I don’t know, but assume it’s not about the bank being liable.  It’s not their money, so I assume they would just move it to another bank.  As we learn more about structured payouts, we will also learn who is responsible for the payouts, and then can figure out how to keep our money safe, once we know what the parameters are.
Q:  Can you state that anyone has received an exchange with their dinar?  A:  Really?! What difference would it make if my answer is Yes?  You still won’t get an exchange until this is available for all of us.  We are still waiting.  If you don’t believe it is ever going to happen, based on what you have experienced up to this date, then you might want to focus on your future somewhere else.
Q:  Can you confirm that the dinar is alive in Iraq at $3+?  A:  No, I cannot confirm it because I’m not there.  I’ve told you what my sources have said.  Believe it or not!
Q:  A few years ago, we were told that one bank has to exchange everyone, while the other banks can pick and choose.  Also, we were told all banks will offer contract rates.
A:  Both are true, to the best of my knowledge.
[computer crashed, missed a question]
Q:  Do we know about tax situation?  No.  Zim rates still high?  Yes, still very high
Q:  Is there an upper limit to how much you can donate to charity?  A:   No, not in any given year.  There is a limit to how much you write off or deduct for charitable donations.  With a regular 501c3 charitable organization, a person can write off and deduct 50% of their adjusted gross income.  With a family trust, you can deduct up to 30% of your gross income. If your AGI is ten million, and you donated eight million to your foundation, you could deduct three million this year (30% of AGI) and carry forward the rest about five years, I think. Check with a tax accountant, but I think you can deduct three million the second year and the remainder in the third year.  Do check with professionals, though.
Q: After 800 numbers are posted, will this site be suspended?  A:  Yes.  It won’t be instant but almost certainly within a month this site will be gone.
Q:  Will the bank control the shelf trust?  [not sure I got this question correctly]  A:  I don’t believe it will be the same thing, but contact your bank and ask them about temporary trust holding accounts or shelf trust.  They will answer your questions now, before the heat of the moment.
Let’s talk to some members…
301 caller:  Something happened this weekend.  My godmother sent me a text about the currency and I sent it out to my group.  My cousin was at the bank about to exchange one of their currencies, at the same bank that last  year they told us we were wasting time.  They were about to exchange seven million dong for $28,000…?  I told her to wait because post-RV, that will be worth $28 million. Then the bank called later and said they would have got $28!  When I called to see if they had some currency to sell, I could hear the manager saying “they will only get $47 per million”. So they don’t know!
803 caller:  My first question relates to the gentleman on the OM call who was talking about transferring his property into a trust after the trust was established.  Does it make any difference if the quit claim is set up as a sale rather than transfer? 
RayRen:  That is a consideration for the quit claim, but it can be a small dollar amount. 
Caller:  is it better to set it up as a regular sale, rather than a quit claim?  Would it depend on if you are making any money off the sale?
RayRen:  A regular sale would have tax and sales tax implications.  If it’s a straight sale, you are getting some money, right?  I’d have to look at that.  Actually you need to take that up with your professionals;  I cannot answer that right now, I don’t remember the details just offhand.
Caller:  How do you close out a trust?
RayRen:  File a 1041, and check the box that says ‘Last filing’ so you let the heirs and beneficiaries know it’s the last filing and they cannot expect any more from this entity.  You can also deplete the assets by selling, donating, or distributing to beneficiaries.
521 caller:  I was a bit confused about the question about exchanging any currency prior to getting an appointment.  When we call the 800 number and get an appointment, will we be able to  exchange one note, and will it affect the rate at the appointment?
RayRen:  Yes, I think you can exchange one note and it won’t affect the main exchange.  If you are in a group, though, check with your group leader.  The TNT group is just an informational group, not a structural group.  If you go to the bank and say you are in the TNT group, they will go ‘what?!’  I don’t see anything to block your changing one note. 
Caller:  In order to get our reserves out, we will have to exchange some to buy the rest. Have a great day!  [Appreciation]  Vegas, Vegas, Vegas!
610 caller:  It’s a new month with new bills.  DONATE at www.tntsuperfantastic.com.
RayRen:  I do hope this is the last month you will make that notification!
Next caller:  I talked to several pastors and ministers and they have something I’d like to share.  It’s a prayer.
RayRen:  Do you have access to the forum?  This call is for Q and A.  Let’s not do that this time;  there are others who really want to get in their questions. 
918 caller:  Are the private groups the Admiral’s Group, Gen64, etc.?  If TNT is an informational group, I guess we are waiting for a public announcement out of Iraq;  would we still be waiting after the Cabinet approval and the law they passed to be published in the Gazette?  Then the CBI would put out a rate, and then we would go?
RayRen:  I don’t know;  I don’t follow it that closely.  Let’s say you are right, that at least gives you’re a format and a timeframe to look at.
Caller:  If no one is in any of those groups in this country, if they have dinar that they brought back from the Iraqi War and they hear about this, could that person walk into a bank and exchange without an 800 number and appointment?
RayRen: If the bank is at that point in exchanges.  One bank is routing people to different locations, so they are not exchanging people at every branch, at least not initially.  But we have had multiple reports from other people being told “the minute this comes through, call me and I will process you”.  So it depends on which bank you’re going to and what their process is.  We are asking them to let us know what that is, so we can tell you all what to expect depending on what bank you prefer.  Any bank that tells us the process, we will pass on to you.
Caller: After this happens, and you go in a couple of weeks later to set up a trust and a foundation, if you have set aside 50% for taxes, does that 50% just stay in the bank outside of your trust or foundation?
RayRen:  Of course not!  You guys are taking that too literally.  If I set aside 50%, I don’t mean taking 50% of your money and sticking it somewhere and not look at it until April 2017!  It’s an accounting set-aside, that’s all, and that money is going to work – you are just not going to spend that money on anything else until the tax situation is clarified.  I’m putting all my money to work!  Don’t put it at risk, like by investing it in something where you might lose it, but put it in moderate, easy, low-risk investment products like CDs, etc. I have an allotment of money that is going to someone else next April, but while it’s with me, it can be making me some pennies.
Caller:  My question whether I keep that money in my trust for asset protection…
RayRen:  Yes.  Trust are about removing ownership, then do whatever you want to do with it, just keeping in mind it’s earmarked for something else.
Caller:  [Appreciation]  Vegas, Vegas, Vegas!
RayRen:  Are we looking for this today or tomorrow?  Yes.  I don’t know what Iraq is doing;  maybe they have wrapped everything up and letting this go today, bam! Private exchanges have taken place in the past, and it wouldn’t surprise me if they continue with that today or this week.  We have dual reasons to be excited and upbeat, because I am looking for something to happen either way.  Both would be progress.  It may be concluded in Iraq and they release it – that could happen today, it sure can.  It’s not guaranteed, of course.  I get information about what people intend to do or plan to do, but things change, so until it is actually done… Things have changed and will continue to change until it is here in the present. If there is a need for us to come back, I will send a text or set up a call.  In the meantime, hold on… and believe.
