IQD News Update (RANT #65)


17  CitiBank N.A  Baghdad /Al Mansoor /Al Ameerat Street

Manu68:  Very interesting.. why open one in a country that has a toilet paper currency?

StephenMac63:  Especially after claiming the IQD was a scam  (wink)

Frank26:  DELTA .................. LAST ONE ..........DONE......... BRIDGED. 
PS ............. LOL .............. THEY NEVER GOT THE MEMO .............. THAT IT'S A SCAM !!!  (ROFL)
SteelyJan:  Good Friday Kona! Here's a Friday funny ... maybe even cause you to pause and ... LOL

So why did the chicken cross the road?

SARAH PALIN: The chicken crossed the road because, gosh-darn it, he's a maverick!

BARACK OBAMA: Let me be perfectly clear, if the chickens like their eggs they can keep their eggs. No chicken will be required to cross the road to surrender her eggs. Period.

JOHN McCAIN: My friends, the chicken crossed the road because he recognized the need to engage in cooperation and dialogue with all the chickens on the other side of the road.

HILLARY CLINTON: What difference at this point does it make why the chicken crossed the road?

GEORGE W. BUSH: We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road or not. The chicken is either with us or against us. There is no middle ground here.

DICK CHENEY: Where's my gun?

BILL CLINTON: I did not cross the road with that chicken.

AL GORE: I invented the chicken.... and the road.

JOHN KERRY: Although I voted to let the chicken cross the road, I am now against it! It was the wrong road to cross, and I was misled about the chicken's intentions. I am not for it now, and will remain against it.

AL SHARPTON: Why are all the chickens white?

DR. PHIL: The problem we have here is that this chicken won't realize that he must first deal with the problem on this side of the road before it goes after the problem on the other side of the road. What we need to do is help him realize how stupid he is acting by not taking on his current problems before adding any new problems.

OPRAH: Well, I understand that the chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross the road so badly. So instead of having the chicken learn from his mistakes and take falls, which is a part of life, I'm going to give this chicken a NEW CAR so that he can just drive across the road and not live his life like the rest of the chickens.

ANDERSON COOPER: We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed to have access to the other side of the road.

NANCY GRACE: That chicken crossed the road because he's guilty! You can see it in his eyes and the way he walks.

PAT BUCHANAN: To steal the job of a decent, hardworking American.

MARTHA STEWART: No one called me to warn me which way the chicken was going. I had a standing order at the Farmer's Market to sell my eggs when the price dropped to a certain level. No little bird gave me any insider information.

DR SEUSS: Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes, the chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed I've not been told.

ERNEST HEMINGWAY: To die in the rain, alone.

GRANDPA: In my day we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough for us.

DONALD TRUMP: We should build a wall so the chicken can't cross the road.

BARBARA WALTERS: Isn't that interesting? In a few moments, we will be listening to the chicken tell, for the first time, the heartwarming story of how it experienced a serious case of molting, and went on to accomplish its lifelong dream of crossing the road.

ARISTOTLE: It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.

BILL GATES: I have just released eChicken2014, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents and balance your checkbook. Internet Explorer is an integral part of eChicken2014. This new platform is much more stable and will never reboot.

ALBERT EINSTEIN: Did the chicken really cross the road, or did the road move beneath the chicken?

COLONEL SANDERS: Did I miss one?


Fuze:  Hello TNT...on Tuesday of last week, I called my local foreign currency branch, of the "lead bank", I'm in the southeast USA. I called to inquire about purchasing a little more vnd and rupiah.

The foreign currency teller who is very familiar with me as a customer of previous purchases; explained that she could see the current rates (same old rates, she's a foreign currency teller only), however, she said we can't transact any exchanges due to a "system change over".

She said we should be back up and running Friday the 19th, so call or come in and I'll place your order. Of course I asked is it just your branch? She said no, it's bank wide. She then volunteered, "but i don't think it's a rate change".

Well I called today, she was out on break so her manager took the call
The manager informed me they were notified last night that bank wide the systems will be back up, this coming Tuesday. She then aploigized and said teller should have notified me.

Has anyone else had this experience, with WF. Remember one of the bank stories from last week, where a member was told by some rather obscure branch manager in a Walmart Store, who said to the member, I'll see you on the 24th?

Is it possible, the little guy got it right? The 23rd, 24th? Time will tell..


Tishwash:  McGurk praises ‘serious dialogue’ between Erbil-Baghdad, talks elections with Barzani

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region (Kurdistan 24) – US envoy Brett McGurk commended efforts by the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and the Federal Government of Iraq in holding talks to resolve their disputes peacefully.

KRG Prime Minister, Nechirvan Barzani, received US Special Envoy for the Global Coalition against the Islamic State (IS) Brett McGurk this week, alongside Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Andrew Peek, US Ambassador to Iraq Douglas Silliman and the Consul General to Erbil, Ken Gross.

The American delegation praised the easing of tensions and positive discussions between Erbil and Baghdad, and stressed “their support for serious dialogue between both sides,” according to the KRG press office.

The delegation also expressed their support for the Kurdistan Region, the political process, and elections in the region.

Barzani highlighted the significant role the US-led coalition plays in the fight against IS. He underlined the importance of the coalition engaging in efforts to bring Erbil and Baghdad together and address their outstanding issues, the KRG’s press office stated.

The Kurdish Premier noted that all political parties in the Kurdistan Region are in agreement to hold elections in the region in the coming months.

Bilateral relations between Erbil and Washington, DC and the latest developments in the country were other topics discussed during the meeting.

Iraq plans to hold elections in May, but multiple parties in the country have called for the postponement of the elections, namely Sunni blocs in Baghdad.

“The necessary conditions for holding elections—including the return of displaced people, stabilization and security in liberated areas to create an election atmosphere, and the return of weapons to the state—have not been met in the Sunni-populated governorates,” one of the largest Sunni blocs in the Iraqi Parliament said on Thursday.

The US Embassy in Baghdad on Thursday issued a statement which stood at odds with the Sunni bloc and sided with Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi as Washington opposes the postponement of Iraq’s elections.

“The US government strongly supports the Iraqi national elections in May 2018 in line with Iraq’s constitution,” a statement released by the embassy read.

“The postponement of the elections will set a dangerous precedent, undermine the constitution, and harm the long-term democratic development of Iraq,” it added.

The Kurdistan Region is also planning to hold elections before May, but a date is yet to be determined.

9. Sun Tzu was very clear that the supreme leader goes into war knowing it is already won. The aim is NOT to cause damage or kill. You want to take the enemy's empire whole and undamaged.

Therefore, the aim is to break the enemy's will, to avoid fighting.

10. However, sometimes an enemy will not bend the knee. In that situation, Sun Tzu's advice becomes much darker. They must be crushed, utterly wiped out - and as publicly as possible.

'Hold out baits to entice the enemy. Feign disorder, and crush him.'

11. The Clinton & Obama gangs chose to resist and fight. Trump would respect that, but that won't prevent the outcome.

For there will be no mercy in their downfall. Their defeat WILL be TOTAL and BRUTAL.

They chose poorly. VERY poorly.

July 19, 2017 Mnt Goat News Brief

Hi Everyone,

I bring you much news today.  

Recently I was listening to some group of guys on a call. I stumbled across this call, so I though I would listen to it and see what they are talking about. The call turned out to be VERY depressing as far as us investors are concerned. If it was all TRUTH (which it isn't)  I would not mind so much. But  once again only a bunch of opinions and nothing more. Just a new twist to intel and instead of positive hype and rumors they gave it a pessimistic spin on hype and rumors. Nothing has changed. Still no one talking about the FACTS.

So in light of this I want to warn everyone DO NOT SELL YOUR DINAR!
​Today I need to bring you some FACTS and make you realize that there is a long term plan for Iraq. Yes – it is a long term plan and we have to wait. This is not a “get rich quick scheme”. The good news a decade already rolled by since 2003 and so time has already passed and so the long term waiting is ticking away. Iraq is now moving forward faster than ever.

Some are discouraged and so they vent their anger on everyone and are now making up these negative stories. Why? I just want to ask you one question as proof to what I am going to tell you today. The IQD revaluation is real and it is going to increase in significant value. Why?

First, we know that the “lop” is out of the questions since the CBI itself has told us many, many times the newer notes and the 3 zero notes are going to coincide for up to 10 years. This is FACT not fiction. So if they were to lop then the citizens would have a short time span (a time limit) to turn in the older 3 zero notes for the newer notes. This is not their plan, obviously. So no lop! All you lop supporters you have nothing to back up what you say.

Second, these same negative people are saying –“oh – this is just going to be redenomination and nothing else”, thus no increase in value. It is obvious again they do not know what they are talking about since they are not really familiar with a redenomination or why the 2003 financial sanctions were placed on Iraq. In the sense the Iraq dinar will go through a “redenomination” if you are technical and want to strictly apply this term since the currency will change over to a new currency. But this will be gradual over a ten year timeframe. This is not a sudden changeover, leaving the holder of the holder of the 3 zero notes up a creek with worthless currency.

DEFINITION of 'Redenomination'. 1. The process whereby a country's currency is recalibrated due to significant inflation and currency devaluation. Certain currencies have been redenominated a number of times over the last century for various reasons.

Again over and over the CBI assured the citizens that these newer notes will “coincide” or “coexist” (depending on which translator you used) for up to 10 years and “gradually” will be phased out. Yes – the operative word is gradual. This is quoted right out of many articles by the CBI. This does not fit the definition of a lop. The CBI governor pointed out that "the introduction of new currency does not mean the destruction of the old currencies, but it will continue to trade to about ten years," pointing out that "this period will enable the central bank to withdraw the old currency in accordance with the mechanics of the market and will maintain liquidity."
I also included an article in my 7/17 newsletter of the CBI telling us inflation is under control and is actually very low. First the CBI stabilized the dinar rate to 1166 over many year. Then in 2014 they had to adjust it for inflation but this was only less than 14 dinars downward, hardly a massive devaluation. So the dinar rate is real steady and strong.

Third, so in this redenomination process that Iraq is involved in is different kind of animal. The value must change. It would not matter if it was going to be a pure “lop”, would it?

But the lop is not an option according to the CBI. Get it? Also in many articles, the CBI told us the value will change, so there is no question about this too. I do not mean a change that would mean to another provisional rate change of an inflation adjustment such as in 2014 (14 dinars to fight inflation). Instead I mean a substantial change in value. I quote from many articles - “future change in the dinar to compete with other foreign currencies” (their words not mine).

I mean bringing back their currency to an international level and competing with other developed nation’s currencies. I quote from past articles - Keywords and said for "tomorrow Press", "The goal of deleting three zeros from the Iraqi currency is to support the Iraqi dinar and make it a competitor of foreign currency", he returned him as a "strategic project that will serve the country's economy."  This strategic project he refers to is the “project to delete the zeros”.
So how would a lop benefit the currency and make it more competitive? It doesn’t. A lop is simply a de-inflation measure, a “recalibrating”. Get it?  A measure to reset the currency. The value usually does not change just that you don’t have to carry so much currency around with you to buy anything. Too many zeros get way out of hand and unmanageable.
Let’s take Zimbabwe as a very good example. They loped and redenominated but they have little to back up the new rate. Remember they issued newer notes and they revalued 1:1 with the US dollar. The project failed. Why? Cause the economic conditions were not right and they did not have sufficient currency reserves. They are not exploiting their natural resources and bringing them to market. They need to export desperately.

Forth, I keep telling everyone do not compare Iraq revalue with what happened in Kuwait in the 90’s. This your first mistake. This a fallacy and a dream. This is not a reason to buy the IQD. This is only hype from these currency dealers. Get it?

These are two entirely different situations/events as Kuwait was a reinstatement and they wanted to go back to the Kuwait dinar from the Saddam Hussein Iraqi dinar. They wanted their full sovereignty back from Iraq. Why did they do this and why did they do it so quickly?

They has to do this quickly since the invasion plan for 2003 was being drawn up and the 3 zero notes were going to replace the Saddam Hussein notes  and the Kuwaiti government did not want to get stuck with these notes since they, as we know, soon became worthless once Iraq switched over. There was a plan and nothing is coincidental and JUST happens. So the Kuwaiti reinstatement was quick and decisive. Many made millions off the Kuwait dinar since the thought process was that Kuwait would replace them. But they didn’t replace them, instead they reinstated. But as an investor, this was purely an accident being in the right place at the right time. This situation happens only once in a lifetime at best. Obviously, this is not the situation with Iraq. So please forget all this hype about Kuwait as a reason for buying Iraqi dinar.

Fifth, and this is the best reason of all. Many of these negative people also say that the economy has to be “booming”, “robust” or “investors flocking into Iraq”, the security tight, la, la, la. Many of these so called gurus still persist and say that the dinar RV will be the catalyst to spark the economy. Again, a lie. What state was the economy in back in 2010, 2013 and 2015? They can list a thousand reasons why the dinar of Iraq is not revaluing but they can’t provide FACTS to back any of it up.

Only conjecture and opinion. Okay so here are some FACTS.

In two articles (I presented these articles to you in the past) when the CBI told us there were three occasions in the past when they were going to move ahead with the next phase of the project to delete the zeros (which leads to an RV). They told us these were missed opportunities but there would be another planned timeframe in the future. These past timeframes were 2011, 2013 and 2015. This is from the CBI I did not make up these FACTS. What were the CBI reserves back then? Did this matter? You think? Did they have a war going on? What was the price of oil?

Could these all be factors related back then to RV?

They then told us 2017 timeframe and that within the 2017 sometime it would be completed. But I firmly believe they are predicating this statement on the ability to bring about the right conditions to facilitate the Rv. So this isn’t decades or even years off. The end of July is quickly approaching. There are 5 more months to 2017. Can Iraq accomplish these goals to RV in this short of time span?

I quote from another article by the CBI: "The Bank is working on the mechanisms used to implement this project is expected to start by the beginning of 2017," noting that "the central bank has began the first steps of the project through the selection of designs, companies and the country in which it will be printed currencies".
So let me clarify all the hype. It says nothing about an RV in the beginning of 2017. Does it? Read it! No it does not. It says the CBI is expected to start the implementation of the project in the beginning of 2017. That is all it says. So there must be plan and they told us there is a plan.  ​
​So all you negative people here is your chance to challenge me. I am open for debate and discussion. But please bring me FACTS not some fictional, delusional stuff from some so called intel “guru” who  is a “secret” source. I can change my mind and I am flexible but so far nothing anyone has said pressed me into changing it. The CBI is moving forward and I believe (until I am told otherwise by the CBI) that the fully intend to recover the dinar to its glory days and thus be worth something substantial and do it by the end of 2017.

Below I included my table of what I believe has been the situation in Iraq. It is based on timelines since the 2003 invasion only. I included a column of items to the left. These items we know are indicators for the CBI, the GOI and the IMF for STABILITY and SECURITY within Iraq.

Can you draw any conclusions from these indicators in the past and to where Iraq is in 2017? Can you see almost all the goals of the past Stand-By-Agreements (SBA)and current SBA being met? Also look at some the economic indicators. Do you think, as investors, we are the very best situation for an RV than ever before?
So now I ask you some questions:

What was the state of Iraq back then during each of these three occasions (2011, 2013 and 2015)?

What was their level of SECURITY and what was their level of political STABILITY?

Why was it stopped each of these 3 times?

What is now different in Iraq?

Why should we believe 2017 will any different?

So please all you negative people don’t give me this rubbish about the Iraq economy having to be “booming” to get an RV or any of your other rhetoric. This is simply not the case if you study the history behind this RV saga.

Should you listen to anyone else?

Listen to whoever you desire, but please don’t come to me crying afterwards when all their foolish RV predictions don’t pan out or you get puzzled by their nonsense and then need clarification. All this nonsense about some Chinese Elders or Sovereign funds, New Republic, New USN, etc,,,funding these currency RVs is just so ridiculous I roll over in the chair each time I hear it. Do you really believe all this stuff?

I also have to say that dropping in to my newsletter only once in a while out of curiosity is a start but not very good since my news is an ongoing saga and it is will be hard to understand and catch up on all the hundreds of articles I presented in the past that you did not read. How can you make connections to what is going on? Along with listening to some other garbage intel, it is no wonder you would have so many questions. No wonder everyone is so confused.

So having said all my points then what is Iraq waiting for to RV?

You tell me. Look at the state of the country now. Look at the past history of the project to delete the zeros. Look at the past 3 efforts to RV. Look at the necessity for the dinar to compete with other foreign currencies. Look at the status of the CBI efforts in an article by the CBI in my 7/17 newsletter (LINK). Look at the SBA with the IMF, re-read all the CBI articles telling us their goals with currency reform. 

So, when do you think perhaps the Iraqi dinar will RV?

Articles are below. As always my comments are in italic RED.

Central bank sales rise in foreign currency auction

(I am never concerned about looking at the sales from the currency auctions as any indicator of an RV. I am only presenting this article to you today because some certain “guru” is telling everyone the auctions are selling dinars not dollars. So here is proof and let’s get it right once and for all. The currency auctions are all about the Chapter VII sanctions. The merchants need US dollars to pay for imports of goods, services and labor. Get it? Iraq is still operating under a closed economy they can not yet use their dinar outside of the country. When this last part of the sanctions are lifted they will be able to use dinar all over the world, trade dinar, pay in dinar and it will be listed on the global currency exchanges. This is what we wait for. So here it is in black and white for everyone to see and read. Please NO Rumors, No Hype….just the FACTS! )

Baghdad – Journal News The sale of foreign currency by the Central Bank of Iraq (CBI) on Wednesday sold more than $ 178 million, after selling $ 176 million yesterday. (Dinar is NOT foreign currency to Iraq since it is their currency…right?  The US Dollar is foreign currency to Iraq)

“The volume of the amount sold today amounted to 178 million, 537 thousand and 334 dollars(it does not day dinars!) at an exchange rate of 1182 dinars per dollar, with the participation of 39 banks and 10 companies for financial transfer.”

The statement said that “the sale of amounts transferred to the accounts of banks abroad, as well as the sale of cash was the price of 1190 dinars per dollar.” (Why is this money going abroad? It is going to pay for imports such as goods, services and labor due to not being able to use the dinar. Amen, Amen I hope I made my point. So can we put this to rest once and for all?)

(So how do currency brokers get their dinar to sale in USA or Europe? They get it mostly from Jordan and Turkey where it is illegally smuggled out of Iraq from corruption. It is allowed to pass thru customs to the USA and Europe because the rate is so low. But I assure you this play money (3 zero notes)  was never meant to leave the country of Iraq. Okay enough of this old stuff you should already know….)

Saleh GOI: The Iraqi dinar is stable and there are no fears of his collapse in front of foreign currencies

The Prime Minister's advisor for Economic Affairs has confirmed the appearance of Mohammed Saleh, settling the exchange rate of the Iraqi dinar against foreign currencies, and there are no fears of a deterioration of its value. (This is fantastic news. In my last newsletter,  dated 7/17, I brought you 4 articles by the CBI. Now the GOI is telling us they confirm with what the CBI said in these articles.
So the GOI and CBI are on the same page with the currency. WE need this prior to Iraq letting the RV go.
But I have to wonder- Why they bring out this article in particular? Why now?
So they are essentially telling us the IQD can withstand against other foreign currencies and there is no fear of it collapsing. WOW! But wait a second THE IQD is not yet competing against other foreign currencies…right?
The IQD is not yet on the global exchanges…right? Iraq is still working under this “closed” economy…right? The IQD is still under sanctions, as they are still only using the 3 zero notes as currency…right?
So why is Saleh telling us this? He is telling us this for the very near future when it does compete? Is he “priming the pump”? Mohammed Saleh is setting the tone for those who will ultimately challenge the move the CBI is about to do. Remember there is still resistance in the parliament to continue with the project to delete the zeros. They will not win and the CBI WILL move forward to the next phase of this project very soon.
This article,, I believe, is the continued effort to educate the other politicians and the common popular crowd as were the other 4 CBI articles earlier this week. Folks they are beginning their re-education process. The process should not get even more detailed as time goes by. Let’s wait and see what happens.)
Saleh added that some were seeking to reduce the value of the Iraqi currency to foreign exchange for profit only, and on foreign debt and borrowing, Mohammad Saleh said the internal and external borrowing process to finance the budget deficit is a process that is not deflationary as some claim but is a stimulating and expansionary process that fights deflation and does not affect the Iraqi economy.
Abadi adviser GOI: Iraq in connection with the receipt of a new batch of International Monetary Fund

Baghdad – the journal news
Financial advisor to Prime Minister Mohamed Saleh appearance that "Iraq is open to institutions concerned with Economic Affairs in the world as our headquarters for World Bank Fund welcome to have the headquarters of the International Monetary Fund, indicating that Iraq are going to receive a new batch of IMF.

Saleh said in a statement for «journal news» that "Iraq has long agreements with the International Monetary Fund which four agreements since 2003 to now, noting that three agreements to prepare other Convention" credit beyond conflict "occurred after the 2003 ″.

Abadi Adviser drew attention to "standby credit program agreement in principle signed in the fifth month of the year 2016 and adopted by the Fund on the date 7/7/2016 that served a loan to Iraq worth 5.3 billion dollars over 36 months.

He continued that "loan payments are divided into 6 major batches and 7 Sub batches, by systematically submitted requests from the Iraqi Government, which when needed, stating that Iraq had received nearly a billion dollars." (so far)

He pointed out that "Iraq awaiting other loan payment equivalent to 35% of Iraq share inside the box." (This is going to be a BIG one 35% x $5,300,000 = $1,855,000 almost 2 billion.)

"The loan determines the payment of five years and a grace period of two years and an interest rate low.

We are Stabilizing IQD Exchange Rate without a space for Speculation: CBI Governor

On Sunday, the Governor of Iraqi Central Bank issued a statement that main objective of CBI is to stabilize the balance between the sale of U.S dollar and demand in the domestic markets. He also added that the sustainability shouldn’t be considered an edge of speculation and huge profits. (This has absolutely nothing to do with an RV of the dinar…just so you know)
The Governor of CBI delivered his words in a press interview with Alsumaria News and indicated that the Bank is looking to maintain a balance between the sales of U.S dollar and to keep it stable. He pointed out that the balance of foreign currency has become strong in the past couple of years and there isn’t any kind of space for speculation and huge profits. He added that Iraq has been experiencing some exceptional circumstances and a significant amount of decline in the global oil prices was considered one of the major reasons behind the economic and financial crisis in the country.

He added that there were two choices in front of the policy of Iraqi Central Bank, whether to respond the U.S dollar to prevent the speculations. But, it would be more costly in the reduction of foreign currency reserves at the CBI due to the foreign currency sale process or accept a margin of increase in the U.S dollar exchange rate against the Iraqi dinar currency. He said that the Iraqi Central Bank was looking to maintain a balance between two objectives. He said that CBI was established as an independent bank under the law implemented on 6th March 2004.

D. Jan. 18 2018 12:00 am EST, Fulford Report: "Tensions Rise Between Bloodlines" - Fulford Report - 1.15.18 Benjamin Fulford, White Dragon Society https://benjaminfulford.net/

1. Last week “A missile from a Cabal submarine was stopped from hitting Hawaii and the submarine was sunk,” Pentagon sources say.

2. Media outlets around the world have reported this to be a false alarm. It was not - it was an attempt by the Cabal to blame the attack on North Korea and use it as a trigger for their long-desired World War III, CIA sources say.

3. The attack was followed by an increase in earthquakes and volcanic activity which “may be an attack on potential submarine bases in Chile, Peru, Papua, New Guinea, or underwater,” the Pentagon sources continue. U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency official Paul Laine has previously told this writer that numerous underwater bases exist. These bases now appear to be under systematic attack.

4. “The war against Cabal soldiers MS-13 [the Salvadoran gang] escalates as Trump arrested MS-13 leaders in the northeastern United States, ends temporary protective status for 200,000 Salvadorans, and may do the same for 60,000 Hondurans.”

5. “Trump seized all classified incriminating documents from the Obama Presidential Library to help the Department of Justice take down the entire Obama regime,” the sources continue.

6. Rothschild family sources in the U.S. say that March is the beginning of the great financial unwind. The Dow Jones will most likely reach 30,000 by mid-March after have totally drained all the remaining liquid assets of the people. The gold-backed currency in which Russia, China, India, and Indonesia are involved together will come online.
7. This CIA source also points out that the Trump regime’s investigation of the Clinton Foundation “opens a very big can of worms globally,” because so many foreign governments have donated to it.


8. The Clinton Foundation was guilty of mass embezzlement, especially concerning Haiti. We were informed by the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency at the time of the Haiti earthquake and tsunami that it was caused by nuclear weapons placed on the seabed by a Cabal submarine. The ongoing FBI investigation of the Foundation will ultimately lead to this fact, and from there it will lead to the similar attack on Fukushima on March 11, 2011.

9. The trail from Fukushima will lead to the P2 Freemason lodge and the very people at Davos where Trump will be taking his “victory lap.”

10. This week Canada’s government has called a meeting of 20 or so countries in Vancouver to “discuss North Korea.” These include England, the U.S., France, Germany, India, Thailand, South Korea, Japan, and other countries that fought against North Korea, China, and Russia during the Korean War. North Korea is just a cover story. The countries gathering are really talking about China and their imminent plans for a gold-backed currency to replace the Western U.S. dollar, Euro, and Japanese yen system.

11. It may well be that the real discussion in Vancouver this week will be about who or what will replace the soon-to-be-bankrupt corporate U.S. government and what their negotiation stance will be with Chinese and their allies


PhantomWolf: The RV is being held up by the Process only its gonna take the PROCESS to get Iraq ready not some moron from another country

sandyf: Q: How strong were the state banks' ties to the regime? TANT: I imagine they were very strongly tied to the regime. They were at the beck and call of Saddam and did anything the regime demanded. They had to. As a result of that, the currency was just devalued in an enormous way.

We found that they had two currencies over there, and when you're trying to unify a country, you need to have one currency. That was another one of the reasons why we had to change out the currency
sandyf: Q: They had two currencies? TANT: Yes. The original currency of the country was called the Swiss dinar. The Kurdish area up in the north is where they used that: north of the no-fly zone line.

They mainly continued to operate in the Swiss dinar, the original currency.That currency was not replaced, recycled, if you will, and it had a lot more value than the Saddam dinar.

There were some negotiations that went on about how to exchange this currency, and at what rate, for the new dinar.

The rate ended up being 150 to one. In other words, in the Kurdish area, when they turned in Swiss dinars to one of the operating banks used during the exchange (and there were about 243 banks used during the exchange), they would get 150 of the new dinar for one of the Swiss dinar. The Swiss dinar basically had three denominations

sandyf: TANT:But, in the great majority of the country, they had the Saddam dinar with Saddam's face on it. There were basically only two denominations of that: there was a 10,000-dinar note, which was worth about $5, and there was a 250-dinar note, which was worth about 12.5 cents, 12 cents.

The reason its value had dropped so low was because of Saddam’s inflationary monetary policy. In comparison, back in the '80s, before the Saddam dinar came about, the rate of exchange was about $3 to one dinar. But because of Saddam there was now a total upside-down situation where one dollar was worth about 2,300 dinar.

tman23: That is also the view of Hassan Hassan, a senior fellow at the Tahrir Institute for Middle East Policy in Washington, and author of a best-selling book on IS. Writing Wednesday in the Emirati paper, The National, Hassan stated that Abadi’s alignment with the PMF undermined “the view in Washington that [he] is a bulwark against sectarian forces with strong links to Iran.”

 “It dispels myths created in western capitals” about the real difference between Abadi, and his predecessor, Nouri al-Maliki, whose sectarianism is widely seen as having paved the way for IS’ rise in 2014.

tman23: If Pregent and Hassan are correct, the latest turn of events reflects a colossal US misjudgment about Abadi and Iraq’s domestic politics more generally. Indeed, Pregent revealed to Kurdistan 24 a particularly dismaying view of developments in Iraq. “I expect that every candidate running for Prime Minister will start asking the United States to leave” the country, Pregent said.

Acerginnala: Ponderings, Valerie Jarrett is shia, Obama is shia (or at least it looks that way). So what if Abadi wasnot a myth but rather a plant?

Bruce: Welcome Everybody to the Big Call tonight. Let’s talk about what we have heard the last couple of days. It is still strange because we still have a blackout in Iraq right now. Information blackout. It seems so strange.  We know they had a rate tradable on the Forex. We know several traders who are working with certain exchanges trading that. First as futures and preloads, now it is as currencies. We know the rate was being trading up as of yesterday and was being traded up and all of a sudden it went on hold in that particular trading platform. I do not know why other than maybe they are getting ready to make a rate change or syncing some systems together, not really sure. That is interesting that is taking place.

Bruce:  The other thing we heard regarding Iraq was one of their banks, Rafidain bank, is working with a relationship with Citibank to issue new credit, debit cards or Qi cards. That is interesting. Some new Citibank cards were to be issued to dual citizens of Iraqi and America today. They were supposed to, and I not confirm this yet, reflect a much higher spending rate or to have the greater ability to spend based on 7 to 8 times than they were seeing before. That is really cool and that is due to a rate increase. We are waiting to see in fact that has happened. We have not confirmed it.  It was supposed to be true as of today. We did not know if it was. We are going to put it on the shelf right now for something to be seen or not seen.
Bruce:  Other things that have been happening especially yesterday is there are major meetings between the banks, the Tier 1 Banks, as far as readiness and preparedness to begin exchanges. We have heard about that. We have heard they were supposed to be prepared to go even as early as today. I believe they were all set to do that and be ready for the possibility of today except that we also understood today that the Forex is going through testing with US and Asia, with US and Africa, and I believe this has to do taking the Forex from the Swift system that it has been on and putting it on the new Fentech System which is tied to the Cipps System, the new super commuter satellite that system is on. That additional testing today was going on and may continue for another day to day and half until that is complete. However, my understanding is we may be able to begin exchanges even if the Forex is not completely set and ready to go. The Forex could follow essentially the exchanges getting started.

Bruce:  Today we have heard that maybe some people if we did get some numbers we get started and set appointments.   Understood some banks were prepared to do some exchanges at screen rates. Then that was the concept talked about for today.  That ended up to be not the case because when we checked with numerous banks and bank screens, they did not have the screen rates showing to do exchanges.  It was a hurry and wait situation. We sort of thought things could be happening to exchange a note or two, get some liquidity before using the 800 number to do our appointment setting before going into the Redemption Centers, but that did not occur today.

Bruce:   We know that table top meetings are occurring in the Far East, Russia, the UK, and different places around the world. I call them exchanges, but they are really table top meetings are occurring, and my thinking is that they will continue the next day or two to occur. I do not see that slowing down. We are looking for is the opportunity for us to go in and get our exchanges done. We are looking for that toll free number to come.

Bruce:  We heard time frames come and we heard time frames go. We seen dates, back wall dates come and go. I am not influenced anymore by dead lines or back walls or even times such and such is expected to happen because some things do happened according to the time lines we hear. Some things do happen. Sometimes we hear something happened at 10 o’clock. Something happened at 1201am, and we do not know what it was. Then the next day we heard such and such did happened.  It is interesting we find out after the fact. It is interesting to track the progress.

Bruce:  I know you are thinking as I am; Wait a minute what happened to this?  You said this would happen at this time. Sometimes we just don’t ever find out why it didn’t occur or why it did not happen. That does occur, and it probably happens far too much.  I don’t worry as much what didn’t happened in the past as much as I am concerned about what is going to happen in the future meaning when the toll free number is going to come. When will we get started? Are the Redemption Centers all lined up and ready to go? Will the calls go out and the notices to the staff by the Treasury to go ahead and be set for us? Yes, of course they will. Will the Call Centers be lined up and ready?
Bruce:   Have you thought about this? Why would they have all the staff trained to go on a 24/7 basis when they get the nod to start? Have you understood why all these 3,700 to 3,800 Redemption Centers, not including Tier 1 Banks, in the United States why were these buildings leased?  Why has HSBC and Wells Fargo putting together these staff, and why were the staff sitting there hours on end every day  ready to go on some form of alert status so when they get the green light they would be able to welcome us and begin to work with us on our exchanges and our Zim redemptions?  Why would all of that be set up so far in advance for us? Why would all the training for Tier 1, 2, and 3 banks or Tier 2 and 3 Banks do exchanges and introductions to the Tier 1 banks? Why would these partnerships be put together with the Tier 1 banks? 

Bruce:  I know there have been exchanges done based on who you knew, based on VIP status, and friends and family status. We know that has happened in the past. It doesn’t seem to happen as much now, but it was for awhile.  Have you thought of the fact they have been doing this for years now and really heavily in the last year ready for this to begin whenever it does start?  Just realize that expense, that effort, training those people, those software systems that have been recently added to catch counterfeit Zim? All of that wouldn’t have been done for nothing. Just realize that.

Bruce:  This is ready to go.   We just don’t have the exact day or hour. The minute I get it and put it out there, it is going to change. You know I don’t do that. I will tell you to be strong, and stay in faith.  This is what we are called to do. Those who of us who have been chosen and called, we been to help hydrate the world and humanity, and to level the playing field for not only our family and friends but the rest of the world. We are those people that have to go out and do and see that the work is done in terms of water, food production, in terms of high quality medical care, technology, etc. This is who we are called to be at this time. I don’t want anyone affiliated at all as a listener to the Big Call to shrink their responsibility and shrink away.

Bruce:  We all will participate in the most fun we ever will have in giving and having compassion to people making changes in the inner city, with Rebuild America, community gardens, aqua ponics, all these things we want to do with Rebuild America in infrastructure , new builds, new housing, and working with the veterans in the Veterans Retreat Network.

For those veterans that we see who are homeless, we will help the veterans to get off the street, to reenter the work force and life as it should be. That is what we want to do. We want those veterans that are out there who are coming back or are here and having trouble with employment, we want to help them to be trained in what they want to pursue. We want to provide that training, provide scholarship. I know they have the GI bill, and I don’t know if they are limited in that.

We will have the opportunities for high quality trade schools, on the job training, apprenticeship, partnerships, all of that. I believe we can get all of this done, and I can’t do this by myself. I will make a dent, and I know you will make a dent. We will all work together to bring this to fruitition all over this country and take it to all over the world wherever we are needed. This technology can go over there. We will take this blessing all over.

Bruce:  Stay in touch with us by taking and registering your email on our new website: bigcalluniverse.com and then you will be able to stay in touch with us. We will let you know what we plan to do about our future calls, and projects and what you can do what in what we plan to do throughout the country in your particular town, city, or community. That is sort of what is going on in that perspective.

Bruce:  There are meetings that are continuing even today that are probably going to decide the when and how the release for this for us. We will look forward to getting the result of those meetings, but I think we are in a status where things seem to be moving slowly for us, but things are happening behind the scenes. We just can’t see it.  Like the Forex testing with 38 tests every hour for the next 36 hours or so. Maybe this needs to occur before we have viable rates on the screens so we can exchange. How is this all coming together? That is the big question mark how this all comes together. What we see is progress. I want to keep everybody in encouraged and find that beautiful heart space that Sue talked about to relieve that stress or fight and flight mindset and bring you in a centered compassionate heart that we should have.

Bruce:  As far as anything I believe the Redemption Centers are still staged and ready to go. I have not heard a change in that status.  I would say based on whenever this release to take place all will move quickly and smoothly. Intel is very quiet. We have some sources who been very slow responding back to us. What we do have is some of you did see there was a settlement with HSBC who is the lead bank for the Redemption Centers. There was a settlement made and paid today. I think there is progress. There is progress good against evil. Certain people taking out of a position where they could exchange. That is a good thing. So there is clean up on aisle 3, and it continues to happen. I am encouraged by that as well.
Bruce:  We heard more proof of the USN that is gold back or highly asset back, not totally gold back for us, that new currency, our new printing of that currency is making its way into bank vaults. I thing they are staging it and getting ready for us. As far as I can tell that is about everything I can bring you tonight in the way of Intel that is moving this along.  I am going to ask you guys to just stay with us and register. This is Thursday and we won’t have another call until Tuesday if we have a call on Tuesday. It is going to depend on what happens between now and then.  Stay in touch. We will be in touch with you if we have your email, you will get the 800 number and let you know what future calls will be and how we are going to do those, and what is our timing for our projects as that comes together. A way for us to stay in touch.

Bruce:  Thank you all for coming in tonight and listening again. I want to thank Bob, Sue, Pastor Steven, and all those who are behind the scenes for helping us. By the way, thank you, Pinkroses, for doing the call transcripts for us. It is a beautiful thing you do for the community at large and for us. Thank you very much. You are well intentioned and you will be highly reward for doing that I assure you. Thank you for that.  Thank you everybody. Goodnight. We will talk to you again when we talk to you. Good night.





Briscom:  My Lord!!!  Mr. Delta and Mr. Frank, what does this mean?  Is it possible to make such an announcement/claim, without an imminent change in currency rate?  How are they doing this? 

With Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) you have access to your funds from many convenient locations across Iraq and all over the world 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.   (wink)  DELTAUSMcret22:  So Delta, does this means that lower denoms are loaded and being used?

HBHockyDad:  Will the Iraqis be able to use that card in the new atm machines right now? If so that would mean the cc’s are loaded correct?

Dreamers13:  Are these cards loaded with IQD or USD?


Iamwright1:  If the cbi and forex aren't posting a new rate why call the bank and ask if they are exchange money ?  

Stand4Christ:  IMO .......Although I do not believe that's Frank26's intention, but I think God is doing something brilliant through Frank26's simple idea ..... besides the fact that many of us can feel the "temperature" of banks concerning Iraqi Dinar through a simple gentle phone call, but God might have just used Frank26's idea to "add pressure" on banks across America .....

Can you see that, SUDDENLY, LOTS of people all over America (keep in mind, there are more than 1000 people in Frank26's CC every time) at different locations calling banks (many have called more than 1 bank in their areas) almost at the similar time (like, within 1 week) asking a simple question, "do you exchange Iraqi Dinar?" 

Many bank tellers will talk; many will even send inquiry to the next level up wondering what's going on, etc. etc.   Do you see a divine wave just got generated ???

Many banks might even ask themselves, "what do they (the public) know that we don't?? Why suddenly so many people are asking??"  The higher up can't hide any longer, they have to talk; things are going to leak, etc. etc. 

If that's the case, in order to prevent big whales from start buying up truck load of Dinar, that "adding pressure" might in fact "help" urge them to pull the trigger sooner, in order to, in their mind, prevent any potential emerging whales or sharks !!

Frank26, thanks for that simple idea; Jesus, thank You for your divine strategy executed through all of your people, Amen!     Once again, this is IMO 

ChrisC:  Don't forget all the people that read him at other places.



Samson:  Abadi's policy retreats from fighting corruption alone and talks about the possibility of achieving a "miracle"

Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi on Friday ruled out the possibility of facing financial and administrative corruption in Iraq and fighting it by one person or another.

"As we have faced terrorism in our unity, we have to face corruption in our unity and no single person or entity can fight corruption alone," Ebadi said in a speech from Karbala today.

He added that "the disagreement that some want is unacceptable and we have to unite to achieve construction and reconstruction and fight corruption," warning of what he called "the deviant terrorist thought that wants to kill civilians is still working and there are those lined up under different addresses."
"Today we can achieve the miracle of fighting corruption and the reconstruction of the country and there are efforts of the international community to stand with the government in the reconstruction of Iraq   LINK

Barboro:  Abadi's policy retreats from fighting corruption alone and talks about the possibility of achieving a "miracle"   KTFA Famiy, could this be our President’s executive order at work???  Sounds like it to me!Samson:  Apple: We will pay 38 billion dollars to America in response to the new tax law

 18th January, 2018

Apple announced on Thursday that it will pay a tax to the US $ 38 billion in response to the new tax law imposed by Washington.  "In addition to this tax, it will invest about $ 350 billion in the US economy over five years and provide about 2,000 jobs," the company said in a statement. "The company has responded to the amendments to the new US tax law, which avoids US companies operating abroad. Paid 35% of the profits, making it pay only 21%. "

According to the statement, "all its employees in the United States, which currently number 84 thousand people in 50 US states, and 123 thousand around the world receive a lump sum of up to 2500 dollars per month." 

The police said they would "recover $ 250 billion of the cash they are saving abroad to the United States," saying it would pay 38 billion dollars in response to the IRS.  "Apple's results show that the company has $ 268.8 billion in cash, Abroad by the end of last November.   LINK

StephenMac63:  This is just a start in repatriating the dollar back to the country. Other companies will follow. Many large computer-based companies are based out of Ireland, for the tax savings.



Samson:  The US House of Representatives adopts a temporary financial measure to avoid paralysis of federal administrations

 19th January, 2018

The US House of Representatives has adopted a temporary financial measure to avoid paralysis of federal administrations, pending a vote in the Senate. 
The House of Representatives adopted a four-week extension to February 16 by 230 votes to 197. 

The Senate must take a decision on the matter by midnight on Friday. 

If no budget agreement is reached by midnight on Friday, a large number of federal institutions will stop working. It will be the first time since October 2013 when hundreds of thousands of employees have been in a state of forced unemployment for two weeks because salaries have not been paid. 

The Republican majority in Congress wants a budget for 2018, including an increase in military spending, under President Donald Trump's promise to voters that the armed forces need more equipment after more than 16 years of war.

In exchange for the budget vote, the democratic minority is demanding a solution for some 690,000 so-called "Dreamers" who are young and young adults who entered the United States illegally when they were children and were threatened with expulsion after the cancellation of the "Dhaka" Temporary permission to stay. 

In the long run, Democrats also demand funding for the state-funded CHIP program for poor and threatened children as a result of the health insurance reform.   LINK
