Minister Sibusiso Moyo: Zimbabwe A Sleeping Economic Giant About to Surprise The World, 17 APRIL

Zimbabwe’s Foreign Minister, Sibusiso Moyo, currently in New York with a high-level delegation to promote Zimbabwe as a viable country to do business, describes his country as a sleeping economic giant, about to surprise the world.

“Zimbabwe has been a secret which has been well-kept by Africa, and it is just being unveiled.”

Moyo and his delegation are in New York for the Zimbabwe Investor’s Forum, organized by a London-based group called Exotix Capital. Last month, a group in London held a similar drive called Zimdaba, aimed at promoting Zimbabwe as a viable investment destination. The phrase ‘Zimbabwe is open for business’, has been a consistent message by President Emmerson Mnangagwa and his administration, since the resignation of long-time President Robert Mugabe, last November. Moyo says the call has been received positively both on the continent, and now in the West.

“So far, the investment drive has been very successful, and there is tremendous interest which has been generated so far in Zimbabwe, in fact, from all over the world. Now we are in America, creating that interest, from American financial institutions, and we are creating interest in fund managers, we are creating interest in various investors, so that they can come to Zimbabwe, which is open for business and be part and parcel of their contribution to the awakening giant, which is called Zimbabwe.”

Zimbabwe’s strained relationship with the U.S. over targeted sanctions imposed in early 2000, due to allegations of election rigging and human rights violations, has shown signs of easing over the past weeks, culminating in a visit by U.S. Senators Chris Coons and Jeff Flake, who recently introduced a bill to amend the Zimbabwe Democracy and Economic Recovery Act (ZIDERA), which Zimbabwe says destroyed its economy.

But Moyo says the visit by the two senators “was excellent” for opening up Zimbabwe to the world. The senators have demanded transparency in the upcoming elections among the pre-conditions for amending ZIDERA. The government says it will conduct free, credible and fair elections in the presence of international observers.

“The visit by the senators, they saw for themselves, they interacted with the rest of society, they consulted with independent personalities, who gave their own views, and finally, they also interacted with us as government, and with his Excellency President Mnangagwa, and they got a very clear direction which the country is taking, which is basically that the country has undertaken serious economic reforms, the country is undertaking serious agreed political reforms.”

On re-entering The Commonwealth of Nations, from which then President Mugabe withdrew in 2003 after being suspended a year earlier over allegations of vote rigging and human rights violations, Moyo says Zimbabwe is certain to return, and has been in close communication with his British counterpart Boris Johnson about the issue.

“It is Zimbabwe’s desire. Leadership desires that Zimbabwe rejoins the commonwealth. But there are processes which we have to follow and the most and critical process is the consultation of our own people who had made that demand in the first place, so that we don’t leave our own population behind, so that we can consult them so that they can give us authority to formally rejoin the Commonwealth.”

Closer to home, Moyo says the demand by Zimbabweans living outside the country to vote in the elections, while not possible for the 2018 elections, could be accommodated in the future. Moyo says for the upcoming elections which the Constitution demands must be held by August 22nd, it is logistically impossible for the country to accommodate the diaspora vote, so all Zimbabweans have to vote in the areas they are registered in, in Zimbabwe.

“We believe that we are going to continue working the logistics and the modalities to ensure that our diasporans must really participate in future elections.”

Despite Moyo’s optimism that investors will flock to Zimbabwe, UK-based Professor of International Relations at the University of Huddersfield, Dr. Nkululeko Sibanda, says the government of Zimbabwe has to do more than just talk to convince the world that it has changed.

“No country develops out of putting a begging bowl for the rest of the world to donate to. He must develop the conditions of the economy on the ground, the fundamentals of the economy. In terms of the elections, I think it’s a serious challenge and it would seem as though the government is trying to put lipstick on a pig and hoping that it will look like something beautiful to marry. It is not.

“If they are serious about free and fair elections, they must forthwith make available a voters’ roll that can be inspected by any member of the public, at any particular moment, either for a fee or no fee at all. Failure of that, the election is just going to be a joke and will only be believed by those who are desperate to believe the ED government.”

Appaloosa:  OK......here we go with my story from 12:45pm ET 4/17/18

Local WF in the Big Bend area of north Florida (200K population approx.)

I was there cashing a check that was given to me written on someone's WF account. I do NOT have an account at WF.

There was a question pertaining to the check, so the teller assisting me had to go seek direction from the branch manager. I was the only customer at the teller counter at the time. I began having small talk with another teller that was standing at her terminal at the teller counter.

I said, "how's the new foreign currency upgrade/change over going. I understand that everyone has been going through training for it and that so far the tellers are happy about the change."

I continued by saying, "I'm sure being able to handle it all on one screen makes it a lot easier to expedite the transaction without having to bounce back and forth from screen-to-screen."
​She replied, "oh yes, I haven't been trained yet, but most of the tellers and staff have been." She continued, "They do like it much better, they say it's a quicker process now which is good because we've been told that the bank is going to be dealing with some different currencies than before which could increase the number of foreign currency customers."

She Said, "we don't know exactly which currencies or when, but it's supposed to be sometime soon."

Now, at this point, I decided to just nod my head and I asked one final question and I said, "when do you have the opportunity to be trained?". She simply replied, "they're working on scheduling it."

At this point, the teller I was working with and the branch manager came over to me, still no one else in the teller lines but me, they transacted my business and the teller I was working with said to her manager, "this customer had a couple of questions pertaining to foreign currency," and looked at me and said this is our branch manager and she can answer any questions you have.

I said, "oh no, I don't need any assistance today, I had just heard about the new foreign currency system and the training that's been on going pertaining to it and was just wondering how it was going."

The branch manager responded with "oh yes, we've almost gotten all foreign currency staff at this branch fully trained and they are able to help customers with the more common currencies at this time, but you have to have an account here."

I replied, "oh, of course, but this isn't just a WF foreign currency system upgrade, it extends to many different banks across the country." She nodded her head and said, "that's exactly right."

I didn't push for what currencies were being added and tried really hard not to say anything that would cause them to shut down with what info she was sharing.

I am going back next week and will open a savings account there and hope that I can build on the dialog that occurred today. I certainly didn't want to give them any reason to feel they need to shut down.

KeithN:  APPY, I have heard much the same at my WF here and can confirm the training and system upgrades as well.  Nice job positioning yourself to get the answers you were looking for.   Just like a Good Investigative Reporter.  Congrats  :):):)

IQD Update News (RANT# 135)



[A Mentoredlife ] Jester, What interesting tidbits have you picked up since you were last in the chat. I think right around that time I saw a video indicating that the sealed indictments were being un-sealed, but I so far haven't found any info on that.


[A Mentoredlife ] Thanks Jester. I've been searching, but haven't found anything concrete yet.


[Glenn Rust] Jester do you have some insights on Syria strikes, is someone trying get a war started, what is real


[Jubilee] Jester I am glad to here that. There is soooo much going on... just this week even.... with the Trump's attorney Cohon getting raided, and the creepy Comy interview and book.... and then the bombing. It's like a snakes head had been cut off (hopefully) and the tail is thrashing violently.


[Jubilee] The stuff we are seeing with the attacks against Trump... are these the smoke and mirrors?


[Jubilee] Jester ... True... like water off a ducks back....



GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT: Iraq Enters Electronic Banking | IQD Dinar Currency ...

TNT: "Broken Loose", 17 APRIL

Perhaps a little update for everyone. I received information that several independent sources at the IMF said that things had broken loose on Thursday night for the RV. They said that they don't know how long it will take to make it to the street, but that it had definitely broken loose. Let's get ready.

A certain "other" also posted a long post on Rumormill.... about Thursday night being on the other side of the RV....

I remember reading also somebody else saying that something significantly happened on Thursday. I was asking at the time if anybody knew what the significant event was.


I certainly hope they start exchanges at the banks this week…. This has been dragged so far down the road, it is pretty incredible to have witnessed it.

indeed rvalready --it's so obvious it's ridiculous...but i feel that abadi is now compelled to release the rv to secure his reelection and prevent maliki throwing an iranian-wrench into the pot- this makes sense

IMF Rate History on the IQD since 1985

According to the IMF website and their records on the IQD...any changes to the value of the dinar have occured in April or September, either at the end of the month or the Wednesday before or after the UN Operational Rates of Exchange mid-month adjustment date. So this April that would be the 11th, 25th and/or the 30th.

Although I would take a RV/RI/GCR today if they want to shake the system up

chattels: A slight rise in the dollar exchange rate against the dinar on the Iraqi Stock Exchange 16/04/2018 Economic development Submit A slight rise in the dollar exchange rate against the dinar on the Iraqi Stock Exchange 16/04/2018 11:43 BAGHDAD / The Iraqi National News Agency (NINA) posted a slight rise against the dinar on the Iraqi bourses on Monday.

The price of selling the dollar in the Kifah Exchange in Baghdad today was 120 thousand and 500 dinars and the purchase price 120 thousand and 450 dinars compared to 100 dollars, while yesterday recorded 120 thousand and 350 dinars and the purchase price 120 thousand and 300 dinars to 100 dollars.

​chattels: My sense and impression of the posting done by sandyf is that he is simply proposing that there are scenarios that we should all consider regarding an outcome to this currency speculation.

Yes, he is dubious about certain popular projections, but he gives his reasons. One can agree or disagree.

There is no need for ad hominem attacks upon him. At times we can be cannabalistic in here. We all want a happy ending. Let's try to be a little happier along the way, eh ?

spankie: hominem--new one for me--

chattels: ad hom·i·nem (hŏm′ə-nĕm′, -nəm) adj. 1. Attacking a person's character or motivations rather than a position or argument.

chattels: It is not my intention to confront anyone, but rather mutual exortation to betterment.

xyz: @chattels very few want to be addressed in day out by pessimist like him

chattels: @xyz All of us may prefer positive illusion, but at the end of the day such may be just illusion.

xyz: @chattels i know i don't... he is entitled to his point of few but its not fair uncomplicated dinarians to throw the worse scenario everyday

xyz: @chattels he throw stuff and disappear without addressing the concerns

chattels: I find informed positivity in his analysis superior to the flawed and failed ideas of others.
chattels: @xyz He does not profess to have all the answers in my observation.

xyz: @chattels analysis may appear positive but lacks merits imho

chattels: @xyz Understood.

xyz: @chattels anyway i have to go
chattels: @xyz Have a fine day.

xyz: @chattels will be back afternoon into evening
chattels: @xyz Like bad pennies we all keep turning back up :)

[pm]Zig: "Tebow: 45,231,515 million is sure not trillions".......Yes, it is.....one million million is a trillion......

spankie: looks like 45 mil

futuremoney: 45,231,515,000,000

Tebow: sandyf: The last financial statement from the CBI was signed off on the 25th July 2017, so it will be a few months before we see the next one. The statement shows the total liabilities of the CBI as being 74,344,721 million IQD from which a liability of 45,231,515 million IQD (approx 61%) exists for currency issued.

Tebow: Sandyf: It should be noted that total assets are shown as 76,544,213 million IQD so equity in the CBI stands at about 2.9% of assets. In simple terms, very close to being technically insolvent. Zig if you believe the article SandyF posted and it is trillions then, they would have 74,344,721 million total

Tebow: the whole post makes no sense
Tebow: believe the 74344721 million is really billion in assets the CBI has.

Tebow: 76,344,721 trillion in total assets? Minus 45,231515 trillion would equal 31,113,206 trillion the CBI has as assets. They are rich or the article makes no sense!

futuremoney: Iraqi's never make sense

Tebow: yes or Sandyf

futuremoney: true: well....parliament met today..and as I predicted..it was a non-quorum...omg these people are retards

Tebow: get elected then not show up

Spectra: Correct sandyf is speaking in terms of confusion .....and makes no sense ...and further more eludes questions when confronted.....

JoeSchmoe: I would still like to ask him what his agenda is for trying to convince everyone of his theory? I mean....Zig says SandyF has dinar, so why try to bring everyone down constantly? Why not just say his peace ONCE, and then leave it at that?

JoeSchmoe: and if he doesn't own dinar...then is he really that bored?

Spectra: @JoeSchmoe well ask it...or him ....if you choose too..

JoeSchmoe: I am never in here when he is

Spectra: @JoeSchmoe he states he has dinar.

JoeSchmoe: then WHY?????

Spectra: @JoeSchmoe not sure..

JoeSchmoe: shouldn't he be looking for support, rather than negativity?

Spectra: @JoeSchmoe you would think!

JoeSchmoe: makes me suspicious to say the least

Tebow: he doesn't know so I could care less
​futuremoney: I know one thing for sure..if maliki makes PM...I am done

JoeSchmoe: maybe he got rid of his dinar, and is trying to get others to follow suit so he won't be the only one who loses in the end if this goes south

futuremoney: should know within a month

Tebow: @futuremoney we are all done

JoeSchmoe: What would maliki do for the dinar exactly though: or not do

Spectra: @JoeSchmoe well yes...My point is ive witnessed him avoid questions...

futuremoney: he will start up the sectarian fighting again..and nothing will advance

JoeSchmoe: I remember when I first got into this, just before M got elected his first term, everyone was excited that he got in.

Spectra: @JoeSchmoe he actually mentioned private groups..  a few days ago.

JoeSchmoe: @Spectra HUH????

Spectra: @JoeSchmoe yeh

JoeSchmoe: @Spectra like the 800 number??? LMAO

Spectra: @JoeSchmoe no

futuremoney: that right there is a big red flag

JoeSchmoe: what kind of groups : tier?

Spectra: @JoeSchmoe well chattels asked him questions revolving that...
Spectra: @JoeSchmoe and he did not answer   i said mentioned

JoeSchmoe: he just said 'groups' and didn't elaborate?

Spectra: @JoeSchmoe yes

JoeSchmoe: does anyone know his exaact words?   of his post

Spectra: @JoeSchmoe its was here one evening a few nights ago  : @JoeSchmoe ask chattels...

JoeSchmoe: like everything having to do with this frustrating thing, everything is subject to interpretation

4-17-2018   Intel/Newshound Guru American Contractor   Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) have recaptured all of the territory hold by the Islamic State (ISIS).  However, in December of 2017, the Prime Minister Haider al- Abadi declared ISIS defeated.  Unfortunately, large areas of northern and westen Iraq continue to lay in ruins from the extensive fighting.  Since 2014, the lack of local governance, secure transportation, disruption in local services, and a decrease in international oil prices have severely impacted Iraq's economy.  At the present time, the Iraqi's are shifting their attention towards recovery and the country's political future.  The security conditions are improving and the Iraqi army is continuing onward with their counter-terrorism operations against the Islamic State.  [post 1 of 3....stay tuned]

4-17-2018   Newshound Guru G-Lin
   Article:  "The Central determines the terms of the non-negotiable banknotes"  I'm pretty sure this is what was addressed on the CBI site ... They are probably trying to draw in that mattress money. 

4-17-2018   Newshound/Intel Guru Mnt Goat  Article:  "THESE LAWS COULD NOT BE PASSED BY THE COUNCIL AND REMAINED STUCK"   Quote:  "these laws could not be passed by the Council and remained stuck with the presidency because of the proliferation of political differences between the blocks."   ...this is an old article, but it gives us an idea of the magnitude of what they still have to do and the push to get it done. We all know now in retrospect that it did not get done and is moved to the next session, which is NOT until after the elections in June. ...More evidence they are not going to RV until at least after the elections.

4-17-2018   Newshound Guru Kaperoni   ...articles surfaced today confirming directly after the elections they plan on opening the banking system.

4-17-2018   Newshound Guru MilitiaMan  Notice the theme of late is about instructions... As in this is how you pay people with allocations of  %'s and we/they (CBI) showed everyone how to collect old money and replace with new notes that will be circulating, the new system of electronic payments, etc.. Oh the new deal between us (Bagdad) and them (Erbil) in regard to the Oil and Gas...


TNT Call notes 16-April-2018

Replay: 641.715.0623, PIN CODE 409029#


RayRen: Good afternoon, TNT super-fantastic family! This is Marvelous Monday, April 16, 2018, with yours truly RayRat98 here, along with…

RayRen: There is no new intel; everything was quiet over the weekend apart from talk about the election on Iraqi television. The conflict between Kurdistan and Bagdad has been resolved. Parliament is meeting tomorrow and we hope there is a quorum. The Governor of the CBI and the Iraqi Finance Minister say they are ready for the RV, but the timing is not ideal due to corruption. The CBI also put out a call last night asking citizens to turn in their damaged currency to replace it with the new pristine currency. That will not affect us.

Right now the most exciting information we have is from our own banking community from last week. Iraq can say what it wants to say (or do) but when it comes down to it, it will between you and your bank, and that won’t get done until the banks here are willing to make the exchanges. The banks are gearing up, getting ready, turning over a new leaf. Some members have been given dates of the 22nd, the 29th, or being completed by the end of the month. We have been hearing ‘by the end of the April’ and now some employees are being told ‘May 1’, and in Iraq some are saying they want to get the elections out of the way first. All we can do is to wait and plan, and be ready for whenever this pops.

Questions from the TNT forum

Q: A friend asked is the banks would be reporting our transactions to the State Tax Board, seeing as they are supposed to report any transactions over $10K?
A: Maybe you should check that with the banks. I’m not aware of banks reporting anything to any Tax Board. Over 10K, they do a FinCen report (to the Treasury) so that they can follow the movements of money, but that is not about taxation.

Q: Is there still a 30-day window prior to the elections where major changes could not be made? Is this specific to the Parliament – is the CBI excluded from this consideration?
A: I am not sure about that one; I’ll have to look into that.

Q: Do you have any further information on military and vets needing to exchange at military finance offices?
A: We have no details about veterans. You need to direct your questions to the finance office. If we get more, I’ll tell you.

Q: If I understand correctly there will be a limit of ten 100 trillion Zim notes that we can exchange. If we have an excess amount over the limit, can we put the balance in a Trust or LLC account or do we have to give it away as a gift to someone or be able to put it into humanitarian projects?
A: That proposed limit is for one quad of Zim in any combination of the 100s and 50s in the trillions, billions, millions, or thousand Zim notes. If you put the excess in an entity that you will profit from, then probably that will not be allowed. But if you give the spare Zim to a charitable foundation, you will get the tax write off.

Q: Clarify, please. You have said the 6-7 Government “committees” each make recommendations, of what should be the final exchange procedures, to their superiors. Their superiors, in turn, then decide what to include in those final procedures. However, you indicated the Banking System might also have some decision making power – for instance, they decided they didn’t want the 100-year and 50-year payouts. So, does the Government have to negotiate with the banking system before the final exchange procedures are set?
A: We don’t know how or what the final procedures are going to be; obviously, it has to be something the banks will agree to do, so I assume there is some level of negotiation.

Q: Since there are several countries in this basket, why are we waiting for Iraq? Can’t they all RV on their own and let Iraq join them when it is ready?
A: That’s a question I asked two years ago. Apparently not, or they would have already.

Q: Is there any truth to the talk that you will have to be a member of a group to be able to exchange your Zim?
A: No.

Q: It appears to me Iraq is going to have an election and that the RV may not happen till after the election. Several times you have stated, “This is a done deal and all we are waiting for is the announcement.” Do you still stand behind that statement?
A: Yes.

Live questions

470/404 caller: What is Shabibi doing right now?

RayRen: No comment.

Caller: There was something in TNT chat about their sources in the IMF ‘letting things go on Thursday’, and they didn’t know how long it would take to trickle down to us. Anything from your sources on that?

RayRen: No; if my sources had verified that, I would have brought it onto this call.

316 caller: There is information coming out that the RV started last week, with tiers 1 and 2, and that tier 4 should start today.

RayRen: I have been getting that same information every week for the last four weeks. The thing that keeps me sane is picking which sources to listen to. Whatever intel comes in, the RV is going to happen the same time for all of us.

805 caller: Who exactly is saying that they will wait until after the election?

RayRen: It’s the talk of what different folks are saying, not an official briefing. Some of the banks are training wealth managers because they are expecting an influx of cash from us! A lot of tellers have also been trained to exchange currency. The average currency exchange in the past years have been 300-400 dollars. We are walking in with millions of dinar, dong, rupiah, etc. The tellers are not used to those quantities. That’s a training process in and of itself.

567 caller: What if the tellers were to load up with currency? Or did they have to sign some kind of agreement not to buy currency?

RayRen: The banking industry kept employees in the dark, and as the light started to dawn, the banks did make some employees agree not to buy currencies. Now that this knowledge is becoming more prevalent (and imminent), it may become a real issue for the banks.

240 caller: When you are negotiating for an interest rate, would that be yearly, quarterly, monthly? What interest would you suggest?

RayRen: Start at the top and move down: ask for the highest rate, at the shortest interval. Ask for daily interest, and failing that weekly. If it is compounded in a short frequency, a low interest will be a better deal for you than a large one compounded quarterly. Check the numbers to work all that out.

Caller: I’m not in the forum – can you write something to me about PYP – Protect Your Principal?

RayRen: The average currency holder has 400,000 worth of currency or less. That is nothing, if that’s all you’ll have after exchange, if you’re looking for something to take care of your for the rest of your life, much less looking after others. That’s why you need to Protect Your Principal. On exchange day, do you really need to pay your bills or debt? There is no immediate need to do that. What you do need is to set up your money to make money for you – anything else can wait or you can use Other People’s Money. Borrow that money at a low interest rate, and let your money go to work at a high interest rate. If you get a 2% loan, and use your principal for an investment at 10%. That is a net gain of 8% while you are servicing that 2% loan. Eventually, your 2% loan will be paid off, while your investments are still making money.

312 caller: Are they still set to protest in Iraq on the 18th because Abadi hasn’t done what he said he’d do?

RayRen: That would be day after tomorrow, and I haven’t heard anything further on that.

Tony: I didn’t want to interrupt. Yes, I am hearing they still plan to have their sit-in on the 18th, and it is about electricity, and about Abadi. Today they are tearing up election posters for Maliki and Allawi both. They have narrowed it down to Abadi and one other guy they think could be Prime Minister. We still don’t understand why Abadi hasn’t released the monetary reforms, when they have been talking about it for months. That’s strange behavior to me.  What's even stranger is that I have been lying for years and people keep listening and donating.  Please help me get the help I need.  Report me here:  Judge's email/phone:  ksd_murguia_chambers@ksd.uscourts.gov  913-735-2340 DA's email/phone:  Scott.Rask@usdoj.gov   913-551-6730 We’ll just watch and see what happens. I think that the release will give Abadi momentum, and if it doesn’t happen, he deserves to lose the election!

RayRen: Do you know anything about major change not being allowed 30 days prior to the election?

Tony: No. But there are changes in any case. For example, Parliament was not supposed to be meeting until June, but in fact they are meeting tomorrow to pass some laws, with 90% participation.

608 caller: A while back there was a post saying David Rothschild would not let this happen under any circumstances. Have you head that comment?

Tony: I have heard that the cabal may block it, whoever that may be. There may be people in Iraq making money off the auctions. I understand them doing that, but there is more at stake here, and everyone will make more money once this goes.

Abu Dhabi caller: I went to the largest exchange dealer here in the UAE. The lady who normally does my exchanges knows that I want the higher denomination notes. This time they ran out of 25,000 notes, and only have 5,000 dinar notes. It looks like they are running dry, and that is good news for us.

Tony: It’s great news if they cannot get any more.

Caller: I will try to find out and let you know before the next call.

806 caller: Where do you get a 10% interest rate?

RayRen: After the RV I’ll let you know.

Tony: I’m using RayRen for my OPM! That’s my plan!

Closing Statement

Tony: There are bank people who still think this will happen this month. If they start protesting Abadi tomorrow, and they are planning to stay until something happens, I think there is a better chance of our seeing this before the elections. Everything still looks super-positive to me, and if we get more information we’ll send out a tweet.

Parliament approves oil and gas law ...

16/4/2018 12:00 am 

BAGHDAD / Al-Sabah 

The head of the parliamentary legal committee, Muhsen al-Saadoun, that the adoption of the law of oil and gas contribute to ending the eternal dispute between Baghdad and Erbil, noting that the parliament received more than five drafts of the law during the previous two sessions. 

Al-Saadoun said in a press statement that "the approval of the oil and gas law contributes to ending the eternal dispute between Baghdad and Erbil and determines the responsibility of each party to manage natural resources." 

"The House of Representatives failed to interpret Article 112 and 111 of the Constitution, which caused the disruption of the passage of the law, despite its importance," he added, ruling out "finding a final version because of differences on the eligibility of the parties to the conflict."

Al-Saadoun pointed out that "the disruption of the oil and gas law caused a major crisis between Baghdad and Arbil has reached the threat of war between them, while the adoption of the law will ensure the legal and constitutional right of each party, whether a province or a territory." link

Operation Disclosure


Gateway: Hi everyone, I just got an update from my Chinese contact.
President Trump is doing fine! They are making some final adjustments !
Expect everything finished in the next  6-24 hours! We shall see!

GodBlessTony:  I'm in..thanks. President says China is devaluing it's currency. The "media" says President is dazed and confused for saying that..just look they say. But, me thinks President knows from where he speaks.   Yesterday China announces 7.9% growth 1st quarter '18..and my sources say most of that is driven by creating more Yuan and building, building and more to keep the people working. So, inflating the money supply is what causes currencies to loose value. The dollar folks are doing the same.


Toolkeeper:  Ramadan 2018 will begin on Wednesday, 16th May 2018 and end on Thursday, 14th June 2018. Eid ul Fitr Date will be on Friday, 15th June 2018. This is the tentative date as the actual date is contingent on the sighting of the moon of Ramadan, the 9th month in the Islamic calendar. The length of the Month varies between 29 and 30 days depending on the sighting of Shawwal Moon which leads to the festival of Eidul Fitr on 1st Shawwal.


Doetracker:  Tishwash. Thanks for all the articles you bring in Do you think they will do this before the elections

Tishwash:  well, I think everything is ready to go before the elections but they are telling us they are going after the elections so I'll say after the elections

Netglobal:  Well I hope this is a head fake and they RV before the elections but with Iraq you never know.

Lonewolf54:  Ray and Tony say dont pay attention to what they are saying but what they are doing

Appaloosa:  One thing perfectly clear as that the mind of an Iraqi doesn't work at all like the minds of most….. I believe in my heart that Abadi will pop the RV prior to election for him to take the win.......but, can't ignore some of the action and articles now pointing to after RV.........

NetGlobal:  They just have many hands in the pot trying to cook

Skipper2:  A few years ago Tony said there would be a mass of dis-information published just before the RV. Use your eyes and trust your judgement. I do believe all is true to form.

Grlewis2000:  PM Abadi has done all the heavy lifting, fought ISSI, fought government corruption, secured the borders, paid Kurdistan, passed the 2018 budget, rebuilding Iraqi, training financial banking staffs, getting ATMs in place, removing old currency with new currency and now meeting with the IMF & World Bank (16th - 22nd); I believe RV before election!!!!
