Hi Everyone,

I bring you the news of today.

In today’s news there is not much. We heard that on Wednesday 10/24 the designate prime minster is supposed to announce candidates (as least half of his new cabinet) to meet the constitution deadline. But wait a second….. the constitution says entire government not half of it. But this is a game each prime minister plays. They submit an entire list of nominees then they expect some to be rejected. They then have another 30 days to re-select these remaining positions. This meets the deadline and everyone is happy. We are in the waiting mode again.

Remember the main positions are always: Minister of Defense, Security, Interior and Oil. The desire of the new prime minster designate was also to reduce (one again) the number of cabinet positions and consolidate them down from 22 to 15. Will this be allowed and occur? We also listen for news of this move.

Looks like Iraq is deciding who will be the deputies to the new prime minister and the three vice presidents to the new president.

Sadr give a warning to the US once again to stop meddling in the affairs of Iraq. I got to tell you this will continue as there is lots at stake for the US and the US did not fight the Iraqi war just to create a democracy in Iraq.

We still have not seen the fate of Nori al-Maliki. We heard there was some “horse trading” that went on in order to finally form the new government and that Maliki might get immunity once again as a VP. But as usual the translations from Arabic to English are not always correct especially when it comes to forming past tense or current tense in sentences and meanings. But as time passes we know this was just talk and not yet definite.

More news….

I want to remind everyone that there is NO FACTUAL basis for anyone telling you the Reinstatement is imminent. I know of a plan to reinstate the currency by the end of October if and only if the US is willing to sign off on it. This will NOT occur unless the government is “fully” formed and key positions are NOT in jeopardy. Personally, I believe we will move into 2019 without a reinstatement as the CBI is already looking at this timeframe as a possibility. There is just too much evidence building already for the case of 2019. Sorry all you gurus out there. You will have to snap to reality and wake up!

ERBIL - Iraqi Shi'ite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr has called on US President Donald Trump to "leave Iraq alone and take care of his own country instead", calling him "deaf and blind".

Sadr, who is known to be against Washington's interests in Iraq, said in a statement that the US top official would better make reforms in the United States and let Iraqis do the same in their country. The Iraqi Shi'ite official further criticized the US leader about his attitude towards the people of Yemen, Syria, and some other countries.

"Instead of making so much efforts to find Jamal Khashoggi only because he holds an American citizenship, check and see what is going on in Yemen, Bahrain, Syria, Myanmar, Libya, and Africa. War has devastated their lives."

"You have lost your hearing, do a test so that you will hear the screaming of children and injured mothers who have been affected by the bombardments and airplanes, which destroy their houses and marketplaces," Sadr added.

In ending I want everyone to know your constant prayers in the fight against evil (ISIS) in Iraq have worked. God has guided these young men and women on the battle field. Let us all now know that there is a new battle now to fight. A battle to save our homelands from the corrupt politicians who are bent on taking what they want from our current wealth and from future generations without our permission. We must keep praying for the end to the rapid corruption in Iraq and in the United States. We must pray for our leaders when they are being guided by the Holy Spirit. We must stand by them and let them know we are still there to support them, even after the election is over. I have composed a prayer maybe we can all pray today in our own way and until the revaluation of the Iraq dinar occurs.


“For the Iraqi Prime Minister and the President of the United States, that all their cabinet members, and deputies may be anointed by the Holy Spirit to do God’s will and bring the free democracies of the Republic of Iraq and the United States of America to the much-deserved prosperity and abundance thru justice and freedom from oppression and corruption. That they may be a shining example for the rest of the middle east and to rest of the world to follow.

In the name of Jesus Christ our King and Savior, Amen”

Auf Wiedersehen 

Much love to ya all,
