TNT Rayren98 Dinar Call

Dinar Updates w/BGG

Oct. 11th, Fixing the Problem


10-10-2017   Newshound Guru Kaperoni   Article:  "Economic partnerships between Iraq and Egypt"  Quote:  "In light of the growing relations between Iraq and Egypt, the government is moving to open the doors of cooperation in the commercial, industrial and investment fields between the two countries, which could pave to reach common agreements contribute to the formation of an effective economic force in the region."   I find this interesting since Egypt is now floating the pound. 

10-10-2017   Intel/Newshound Guru payray
  Article:  "Central Bank: foreign currency reserves rose 3 billion dollars this year ...They are very confident that the launching of foreign bonds will more than likely occur in 2018...Does that not require a internationally excepted currency?...  Foreign reserves have risen 3 billion?... That is important to the stability of their economy... 48 billion in reserves is still a very respectable number in any country... I believe it was mentioned in the past that they did not want it to go below 43 billion...  So we wait for the MOVE that will open up the floodgates of economic prosperity... All their ducks are lined up folks despite all of the disputes...

10-10-2017   Intel Guru RayRen98   CURRENT WINDOW:  I don't expect it today [Monday].  At the earliest Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday of this week. ...sources saying it could happen any time now...you can forget about that November stuff...It looks really good for us.

10-10-2017   Newshound Guru mike  ...these guys haven't received any support from Baghdad; government salaries, infrastructure, displaced persons and military hardware for the fight with ISIL since March 2014.  They had to do something profound to get everyone's attention, why hasn't anyone jumped in during that time to support and demand Baghdad's negotiations with Erbil? Well, they got the worlds attention now, hopefully they'll use this to win concessions and support that's designed to unite the country, no divide. Baghdad's response to the referendum is nothing but punitive, maybe they should try more carrot and less stick.  [post 2 of 2]

10-10-2017   Newshound Guru mike   Article:  "Saudi newspaper: Washington threatens Iraqi forces to bomb if Baghdad resorted to the military option against Kurdistan"  [Really, this is good news for us. The day the US abandons a united Iraq is the day our investment is worthless. This tells me the plan is still in place...]  I will say that the Kurd's only produce roughly 500,000 bpd while Basra and the rest pump roughly 3.5-40 million bpd, the Kurd's financial contribution to the overall state is probably closer to a push than a win. I'd definitely agree that Barzani and the Kurd's are using this for global leverage for recognition and support from Baghdad.   [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]

10-10-2017   Newshound Guru chattels  The next phase of operations against Da'ash is western Anbar and securing the Syrian border with Iraq. I have opined that the completion of such may be a red letter date for many things in Iraq.

10-10-2017   Intel/Newshound Guru payray   Article:  "Kubic denies Maliki the issuance of the United Nations initiative to resolve the crisis in Kurdistan"    ...While all of this deliberation is going on, do not be surprised if we see the increase... Diversion... This subject of referendum's, and independence will continue on... In the mean time, it will not serve as a deterrent to the continual process of ensuring Iraq's economy is given a huge boost via the increase of their currencies value...

"20 Answers" - GESARA Update - Thursday - November 3, 2016









Last week I referenced Abadi had put out something to the citizens indicating November. Now this turn of events…would probably change that. The last two provinces, that needed to be liberated are reporting record number of surrenders…Of DASH and ISIS surrendering. Which means those two provinces could pretty much be liberated within a matter of hours or days. Definitely not weeks, so you can forget about that November stuff. 

Alak was on TV about the trip coming up over here in the US and IMF. More particularly about needing to develop the currency to it’s true face value and to have it’s International acceptance they deserve. So that lets you know that the wheels are still turning and everyone’s pretty much in that direction of getting this thing born. 

In the midst of Sadr, protests, and all of those things going on over there, Parliament is in a closed session today, which I’m…assuming to address a lot of the things they are concerned with corruption, etc. which will help accelerate the National Reconciliation. That’s what everyone is looking forward to. Full liberation, National Reconciliation, things of that nature.

Article: “Kubic denies Maliki the issuance of the United Nations initiative to resolve the crisis in Kurdistan“ While all of this deliberation is going on, do not be surprised if we see the increase… Diversion… This subject of referendum’s, and independence will continue on… In the mean time, it will not serve as a deterrent to the continual process of ensuring Iraq’s economy is given a huge boost via the increase of their currencies value.


A question for the Dreams board: Earlier today I was slanders by a few of our newest members who accused me of being something more than what I am and criticized my early morning prayer sessions as being more self serving and hypocritical than I certainly mean them to be. It bothered me more than I guess it should so in light of that

I believe it will be best if I refrain from posting my thoughts and prayers for this room. I will still lurk and answer direct questions and continue to post my early session on WSOMN.

Ted - don't let them get to you, everyone reads your prayers


Oh no TED, please - I so look forward to your prayers every morning, your prayers help me get through the times of doubt knowing that you are praying for all of us all.

Ted, I rarely post but I never miss reading your prayers. Please continue posting them. The people that you mentioned who were so nasty probably need them the most. Thank you for all that you do here and at wsomn.

TED....your posted prayers are a real comfort and you seem to know just the right words to use....amazing to me...and I know they are divinely guided.. Those who choose another path are more adept at being critical...so sad for them...their own worst enemy. Hard to ignore just judgment...maybe they are trolls if new here

just ignore....transposed...sorry

It is truly uncalled for....do what is best....as it is very hurtful when one is sincere in their words and then criticized....I am lucky to be in both rooms...so I can read them @ Wsomn if that is only place you can post...blessings

Ted, I must have missed that one. I say were someone attacked Sand and Halo for their news posts and that ticked me off. I hope you continue to post your prayers here. The majority are for you.

I don't think there is an issue here at all with Ted's prayers.

Most Gracious and Heavenly Father, It appears I have allowed myself to fall victim to those who are resorting to intimidate me for doing my post on the message boards in the early morning. They bated me by first insinuating then that I had connections with the Dinar Daily group and then attack my prayers to You Father as being hypocritical in nature. I responded to the DD matter but after reviewing some of my previous postings I could see how some might have considered some of my rantings as being hypocritical in nature so I had decided for the good of the message board to stop my post in the Dreamers chat. I now realize that I may have over reacted so those who do look forward to my sessions so after personal reconsideration and in response from members, I have reconsidered my options.

Dear Lord God Almighty, as You know I am not nor have I ever proposed myself to be anything more than a Christian man. You also know that it was an inspiration that came to me in the dead of night when I realized that I am a person going through rough times in my life and that I needed to do something to help others even worse off to be inspired enough to not give up and take it one day at a time.

My dear friends, I want to take this time to thank you all for restoring my faith and my dedication to this board as well as those who are still on the WSOMN board as well. I have great faith in both of the board Admins along with Monitors and Guides on this board as well. Time is late so I will close with saying beware of those who are out there waiting to steal your dreams. Take each day one at a time.

Rest well this morning as we start into the new week and know that when the time is right our rewards will come but be aware that even after that all of the folks on Dreams and WSOMN will still be on my prayer list and if it is meant to be we will meet again. May the Lord God bless each and every one of you. Remember. “Our Destiny Awaits”

Halo and Sand wish to thank you gals for continuing to bring all you do to the room and ignoring the individuals petitioning for you to stop, many more appreciate your efforts than agree with the sole complainer

The idea of this site from 006 was a place for friends to connect and express their views with Respect

It appears that things are out of control. In the true sense of the situation the light is unraveling the third dimension and transfiguring the darkness under which you have lived for too long. The dark is trying their best to worsen the chaos, fear, and horrific conditions which they have created and perpetuated. please do your best to rise above these energies.

Limiting negative mainstream media,is one of the best ways to rise above what is going on. What happens depends a lot on your thoughts .You are living in the time of the light and profound miracles.Everything is coming out into the open. It is time for all to come together in love and peace.

Good morning Dreamers. Any news specific to RV/GCR or just the usual WAIT?

It's pretty much black out wait but we r very close !!!

Unfortunately, DD has taken advantage of our open access to members to start inserting Trolls into our group with the single most important goal of creating friction among our members. Until we can get a handle on that I believe that members need to be careful of what links they follow. Just my thoughts on the matter..

SAND how do they troll you please

What exactly is a "troll"? Hackers?

TED: I think DD "Nick" caught one unsuspecting person that was lurking, to bring his agenda/garbage into this room.

What is a troll? Is a person who grabs your attention, then feeds you full of garbage, negativity & profanity.

Garmst: So true, agree....it was a fishing hook, to draw peeps into site that site.

Tishwash:   Zimbabwe's Mugabe Names New Finance Minister Amid Currency Crunch

Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe has replaced Finance Minister Patrick Chinamasa — who will lead a new Security Ministry — with Home Affairs Minister Ignatius Chombo in a cabinet reshuffle, the government said in a statement Monday.

The move comes against the backdrop of a severe hard currency shortage that has dealt a fresh blow to confidence and investment in the southern African economy, which uses the U.S. dollar.

Chinamasa was appointed finance minister in 2013 after Mugabe was re-elected and his move to head a newly created ministry of cybersecurity, threat detection and mitigation was unexpected.

Chombo, who does not have a finance background, is a staunch Mugabe supporter who comes from the 93-year-old leader's rural home district. He was a surprise choice for minister of finance.

The new finance minister will have to contend with a serious shortage of foreign currency that has seen U.S. dollar bank balances lose value against cash dollars, fanning a thriving black market.

The worthless Zimbabwe dollar was replaced by the U.S. dollar in 2009, but the economy has struggled over the last 18 months because of a massive domestic shortage of greenbacks.

As a result, cash — especially crisp, new, $100 bills — has enjoyed a steady 10 percent to 20 percent premium over dollars stored electronically in bank accounts — nicknamed "zollars."

Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa lost oversight of the Justice Ministry to the head of Zimbabwe's spy agency Happyton Bonyongwe. In total, 10 cabinet ministers changed posts while two were dropped entirely.   link



Samson:  China is witnessing the final days of the paper currency

 10th October, 2017

A financial study concluded that today's cash currency is living in its final days, especially in large markets like China, where people have more than a way to pay for services and products away from paper currency.

A study published by the site "Futurism" US that the payment through the "cash" is closer to something of the past.

Last year saw a doubling of the number of mobile phone transactions to $ 5 trillion, the study said.

Figures from the first three months of this year show that ePay services such as Ali Bay and Wei Chat dominate the Chinese market.

According to a study conducted by the investment company "CALSA" in Hong Kong, is expected to continue the proportion of electronic payments to increase over time, and the value in 2021 to 45 trillion US dollars.

This is mainly due to the fact that simple and even non-basic services are based on electronic payment without the need for paper money, such as renting bicycles for mobility and payment at fast food restaurants via mobile phones. In some places, The Cash route is not allowed.

Smart phones are now seen to be able to make payments quickly and securely, whether it's money to a friend or paying for products in stores.

Samson:  Economic adviser to the government reveals: These are similarities between the budget of 2018 and the budget this year

9th October, 2017

Adviser to the Prime Minister Dr. Mohammed Saleh appearance of the arrival of the financial budget for 2018 to the House of Representatives in about three weeks. Saleh said in a press statement: "The budget was discussed within the Council of Ministers and recorded some notes and will be amended and sent to the House of Representatives in a period of nearly three weeks."

On the form and size of the budget, Saleh said that "the budget next year will not differ in direction from the budget this year, but will be more disciplined by reducing expenses and maximize non-oil resources and the expansion of the deficit."  "Saleh said that" the work followed in the development of the budget went in two directions first, maximizing non-oil resources at the base level and the second non-expansion of the deficit by reducing expenditures and reduce financial borrowing "

On the size of the budget expected Saleh said that "the budget next year will be close to the budget this year and may reach 107 trillions dinars or more or less and it will orbit in this figure and will not be far away from it a lot, whether ascending or descending."

An IMF report, published recently, predicted that the Iraqi government's debt in 2018 would rise to more than $ 132 billion.  "Iraq's debt for 2013 was $ 73.1 billion, while its debt in 2014 rose to $ 75.2 billion, and in 2015 it became $ 98.0 billion, while in 2016 it was $ 114.6 billion, rising in 2017," the report said. To 122.9 ".  "Government debt will rise next year to $ 132.4 billion, which confirms that government debt is on the rise," the report said.

The Republic of Iraq reached an agreement with IMF experts on the draft budget for 2018, in line with the credit arrangement agreed by the Fund in July last year, the International Foundation said in a statement.  Last year, the IMF Executive Board signed a $ 5.34 billion credit arrangement to support the government's economic reform program. 
The IMF-supported economic reform program in Iraq aims to meet the urgent balance of payments needs, reach expenditure consistent with the decline in world oil prices, and ensure that debt remains within sustainable limits. Iraq's discussions with IFAD came within the framework of the third review of the credit standoff agreement. The IMF said in a report in August that Iraq was facing a "double shock" due to lower oil prices and the cost of its conflict with the organization of the terrorist advocate.

The International Organization predicted a near-steady performance of the economy this year, compared to last year, with oil production falling by 1.5 percent, in an agreement with OPEC countries to reduce production and a slight recovery in non-oil sectors.

Iraq's reserves of foreign exchange have fallen as global oil prices plummeted to $ 45 billion by the end of 2016, compared with $ 54 billion in 2015, while fiscal pressures continued to hit the country with the country's budget deficit hitting 12 and 14 per cent of gross domestic product In 2015 and 2016, respectively.

The IMF expects Iraq's economy to contract by 0.4 percent in 2017, but sees growth prospects for the country as positive in the medium term, with growth expected to range from 2 percent to about 3 percent over the next five years.  The IMF is betting on the recovery of non-oil sectors, supported by improved security stability and the implementation of structural economic reforms, the report said.

The credit rating agency Fitch, in a report issued, highlighted the political risks in Iraq after a referendum in the Kurdistan region on the separation from the country. The referendum could put the country at risk of violent confrontation or ethnic conflict, but the status quo between the Baghdad and Kurdistan governments could also remain largely unchanged, the agency said.

The results of the September 25 referendum showed that 93 per cent of Kurds supported the independence of Iraqi Kurdistan, but the Kurdish leadership had declared that the referendum would not lead to an immediate declaration of unilateral independence.  The parliamentary Finance Committee said that the budget of 2018 will differ significantly from the budgets that preceded it in terms of increasing the proportion of investment expenditures and the increase in the import index due to the recycling of the funds of some provinces and departments in the hot areas allocated to investment projects, as well as the relative increase in oil prices, likely high oil prices Next year to more than $ 60 a barrel.

The committee member Ahmed Rashid said in a statement that there is a proposal for the abolition of deductions in salaries of employees and retirees allocated to the displaced on the grounds that oil prices began to improve and there are expectations of low level of displacement next year in light of the operations carried out by the security forces in hot areas to restore From the control of elements calling up the terrorist.

He added that the parliamentary proposal included the deletion of some paragraphs of the budget in 2017 and the most important deduction of salaries of employees and retirees, 3.8% This request was raised to the Ministry of Finance.  Experts believe that the budget of 2018 will focus on investment projects to compensate for the "lean" years that saw military operations and the depletion of human and financial resources and a sharp decline in oil prices, which have greatly affected the economic level in the country.



IMF:  World Economic Outlook

The global upswing in economic activity is strengthening, with global growth projected to rise to 3.6 percent in 2017 and 3.7 percent in 2018. Broad-based upward revisions in the euro area, Japan, emerging Asia, emerging Europe, and Russia more than offset downward revisions for the United States and the United Kingdom.

But the recovery is not complete: while the baseline outlook is strengthening, growth remains weak in many countries, and inflation is below target in most advanced economies.
Commodity exporters, especially of fuel, are particularly hard hit as their adjustment to a sharp stepdown in foreign earnings continues.

And while short-term risks are broadly balanced, medium-term risks are still tilted to the downside. For policymakers, the welcome cyclical pickup in global activity provides an ideal window of opportunity to tackle key challenges—namely to boost potential output while ensuring its benefits are broadly shared, and to build resilience against downside risks.
