Will:   wow, this one is HUGE

ChrisC: I agree Will.  Talking about corruption is one thing, arresting people is another.  I want to see the cuffs go on Mr. "be sure and vote to stop corruption" Pinocchio.  Trump is disarming Iran without even touching them.  He is crushing their currency and taking away their spies and agents from Iraq.  I see another Parliament getting set up next door pretty soon. IMO

US President Donald Trump announced on Tuesday his country's withdrawal from Iran's nuclear deal.

"The nuclear deal did not affect the regime's behavior and allowed it to develop its nuclear program," Trump said in a televised address.

He noted that "the Iranian regime has received many billions, and promises made by a false, and will continue his efforts to obtain nuclear weapons."

"The nuclear agreement does not limit Iran's terrorist activities and allows it to carry nuclear weapons in the future," Trump said, adding that terrorism in the Middle East should be stopped.

He pointed out that "the Iranian regime funds the militias, such as Hezbollah, the Taliban and al Qaeda."

Following his speech, Trump signed the decision to withdraw the United States from Iran's nuclear deal.   LINK


Don961: Article: “The cabinet will become a caretaker government starting next week”  LINK

Imo ... caretaker just means a lame duck period after the elections until the newly elected are inaugurated several weeks later .. and the new government takes over ...

in Iraq , that is July 1st .... just like we in the US elect the 1st Tuesday of November ... but the newly elected do not officially take over until January ... so if it's an incumbant , their agenda can continue ... if not , then it's kinda useless for the existing leader to try to  pass laws or make International agreements 



ChrisC:  Article:  “Iraq requests membership of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development”     http://asrarmedia.com/%D8%A7%D.....D8%A7/  

I kept waiting for more to post on this, but I have to say that this virtually HAS to prove an international status doesn't it?  How could they be in a group of international banks if they weren't international?  There are so many articles today that, truly, you could just take your pick to say they were international but this one especially stood out to me.  Frank, you and your crew are just crushing everybody else. IMO. Thanks so much for everything.

Jay:  Chris. Well stated and totally agree.  What's really awesome is that this bank has a branch in Jordan. Hmmmm.... Who, close to us has bank(s) in Jordan... ??? ... I mentioned something to this affect in TC last night... and crickets. All IMO.

Dan:  Frank.... as always the articles come out always confirming what you and your
teams teach us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now we all know the launching of 5 year plan can not work without RI into RV.
I question the 4 day weekend?

If RI is after 4 day weekend it does not have much influence
Re: voters because it will be after the vote is done on Saturday.....unless
it is already done in country and we have not been privy to that info.

Don't know what was shared on team chat...maybe you gave out more info.
Time and pressure. Maybe Abadi already feels like it is in the bag... and he can delay
RI. Interesting that US Embassy is officially opening in Israel on Monday May 14
There could be a lot of chaos and upheaval in the middle east over this issue.
Ramadan starts May 15

Muslims like to give gifts during ramadan. Need mullah (pun intended)

Tight time frame if RI is to happen before May 15 Tuesday next week,           
or see you on the other side June 14.

I can not see 24 Hr notice to turn it on (ATM's) and countries and companies
wanting to wait until after ramadan. Seems totally unnecessary
to prolong this any longer, the time is right the time is now. (All IMO)

 9th May, 2018

Samir Nusairi

A new decision was issued by the Central Bank of Iraq to allow banks with capital of 250 billion dinars to participate in the window of selling the dollar and increase the weekly share of the dollar to banks, which will contribute to increase the supply of the dollar in the circulation of foreign currency in order to maintain the stability of the exchange rate and overcome and meet some pessimistic expectations

Which is speculated by speculators that the dollar exchange rate will increase during the elections or cause the circumstances of the US escalation against Iran and for the purpose of assigning the decisions of the Central Bank requires Iraqi banks and branches of foreign banks to go to real banking

And activate the financing of small and medium enterprises and the provision of banking products, electronic speech and to attract deposits and participation in the establishment of a deposit insurance company and the establishment of the two companies Aloutnettin to finance large projects which contribute to the two traditional banks and Participative and cooperation with the Central Bank in the implementation of its policy in support of the development of the banking sector as directed Mr. Governor last in the monthly meeting of the last monthly banking leaders

And the meeting with banks participating in the recent banking conference in Istanbul and stressed the sovereignty of the stability of the exchange rate and the recovery of the Iraqi dinar and this goal will remain one of the central bank's objectives, which requires banks sooner or later leave the total dependence on the window Selling foreign currency

It is time to move on to the practice of real banking which is to provide modern banking products to the public and provide the best services to customers and work to increase the financial coverage.

And that the banking sector has a key role and important in the development and revitalization of the economic cycle and pointed out that the stability of the exchange rate should not make banks fear for their future in the banking market    LINK

Sheila:  This article stating the stability of the exchange rate should not make banks fear for their future in the banking market says it all!!!!
