MNT GOAT UPDATE, 18 MAY

May 18, 2018 Mnt Goat News Brief 

Hi Everyone,

I bring you much news today.   

The results of my last Newsletter survey tells me that many still don’t understand the election process in Iraq. So I wanted to clarify it to you today and I hope you now can understand how it is applying to this last election. 

So we all know that Al-Abadi did lose the popular votes, thus he did lose the election, however……(this is the point this 7% of my surveyed readers do not get)

Could Al-Abadi be the next PM even though he lost the popular election? 

Everyone should know by now that even though a candidate runs for office and does not win the overall popular vote, he/she can still possibly be nominated as the candidate for the office and, if ratified by parliament, take the duty of forming the next government of Iraq, thus the prime minister position.  

How does this work? 

You must keep in mind the Iraqi system of elections is similar but not the same as in the USA. 

Unlike the US electoral process, the parliamentary process is different in that what happens is first they run the popular election. The winning party then gets to bring forward a candidate for the office of prime minister. But this is a candidate and does not necessarily have to match who was running for the party. Get it? 

But shouldn’t the candidate that campaigned and won the popular vote alsp be the nominee since he/she won? 

Yes and No- Yes -since if this person desires (and is qualified) to be prime minister he/she can simply put themselves forward as the party’s candidate. No - since the popular voting process is actually voting for a “movement” or the “promises” of the party, list or coalition, the person who campaigns is campaigning for the implementation of these policies. So Yes, it can also be that he wants to be the nominee to fulfill these promises and bring them about or he/she can pick someone else who will fulfill these promises.  

So, in this election process of 2018, we see that Al-Sadr does not want to be prime minister since he is a cleric but wanted to be able to select someone who will fulfill the “Sadr Movement’s” party policies. So, who will he select?  That is the million dollar question. 

So let us try to figure this all out. 

We witnessed Al-Sadr running the campaign and winning but with no desire to actually be the prime minister. Did he really want to win or just take votes away from the other candidates and then later combine them with al-Abadi anyhow. But since his movement won the actual popular vote al-Sadr (or I should say his movement party) get to chose the nominee. But I have to tell you al-Sadr really didn’t expect to win and planned on supporting al-Abadi (who he thought would win). And so Al-Sadr winning changes everything. Now he gets to put real pressure on al-Abadi and set some terms if Al-Abadi wants the nomination. 

But what about all these other politicians who also ran and received substantial votes? 

These parties will combine their popular votes over to another candidate or party for favors or the implementation of some of their future goals. When all this “horse-trading” is over they will choose a candidate MOST likely to implement their policies in the next term. 

Can they overthrow the popular vote? 

NO, even if enough of the other parties combined their votes against the popular vote party they can not overthrow the winner of the election. But this is not the time to overthrow. 

The time is during the election process they can strategically take votes away from some candidate or party. These are then dead votes, but only if they do not win. But if a party with their ideals does win, then like parties  gang up and combine votes but only to the party that has common goals. Get it? Why would you give your votes away to another party that does not favor your goals anyhow? Get it? 

Hope this explanation helps everyone! 

You should all now see how Al-Abadi can be nominated and probably will be the nominee submitted to parliament by the “Sadr Movement”. However, having said this, it is very premature and irresponsible to be telling everyone on intel conference calls that al-Abadi has already been nominated. There is no proof of this. All the news states Al-Sadr has to still decide however he is open to it. This is what he really said. 

Let’s just watch it all play out and see if there are any surprises. 

More news….

“Baghdad News – 
A spokesman for the Sadrist movement, 
Ali Douai will be the candidate the post of for Prime Minister. “

What? Is this a rumor  and has been verified? No, it is just a rumor. 

Then in the same day out pops this next article: 

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – The Sadr movement will nominate current Maysan governor for the post of prime minister to head up what they want to be a technocrat government that will eliminate those tainted with accusations of corruption, the spokesperson told Rudaw.

(Mnt Goat – Hey wait a second so who is the nominiee, Al- Abadi, Maysan or Ali Douai ? Somewhere the news media is printing fake news. I think this is all just fake news to take attention away for Al-Abadi. But let’s see how it all plays out. I onkly presented it because it was interesting trivia….lol…lol..lol..) 

More news….

French report: Election results will change after the addition of 1.7 million votes for the special ballot and voters abroad.

Baghdad today  – The results of the Iraqi elections may change suddenly for some parties after the addition of the votes of the special and external voters, which are about 1.7 million votes.

The report said that “the Iraqis have formed a political surprise by the receipt of lists against the current political structure, to advance the legislative elections,” according to partial results showed, a big difference from the Prime Minister Haider Abadi, which has the support of a large international, “These official partial results, which appeared on Sunday night, do not include the vote of security forces, expatriates and displaced people, who can change the data after counting their votes.

(Mnt Goat – As if we weren’t confused enough, then out pops this article about more votes still to be counted. Can you see now why it is taking so long to get the final results? We were supposed to get the results yesterday and didn’t. Wait – they will tell us in an upcoming news article about the delay and give us another date.)

More news….

“The final results were supposed to be announced on Thursday May 17th . I do not yet have these results and I don’t believe they have been announced yet. The Electoral Commission: Final results will be announced at 10 pm Friday. 

I strongly encourage everyone reading this Newsletter today to read through all the articles below if you really want to ongoing election saga and to get a real, factual sense of what is really happening with the elections. It is dynamic and it is moving quickly. 

Why trust one of these irresponsible Guru idiots who always have to taint the news with their own “opinions”, “conspiracy theories” or “secret intel”. Instead simply read the FACTS for yourself. Wow! That was easy …. lol … lol ... lol …

Their words not mine…..No Rumors, No Hype, No Opinions ,,,,,

CBI TO STOP DEALING WITH THE ISLAMIC BANK OF IRAQ

(Baghdad: Al-Furat News) 

The Central Bank of Iraq decided to stop dealing with the Islamic Bank of Iraq in Iraq after accusing him of financing terrorism by the US Treasury Department.

A document issued by the Central Bank to all authorized banks and financial transfer companies and companies to mediate the sale and spread of foreign currencies to stop dealing with the Bank of the Islamic country.

“In view of the inclusion of AlBilad Islamic Bank and its Chairman (Aras Habib Mohammad) on the {OFAC} list and on the basis of the international agreements signed by the Iraqi side, and in order to preserve the integrity of the financial and banking system in Iraq, The following precautionary measures:

First: To stop the bank from entering into the window of sale and purchase of foreign currency

(Mnt Goat – did I not say they were using this stolen money from the currency auctions to fund terrorism? So here it is. )

Second: To reserve all the accounts of the bank and the accounts of the Chairman of the Board of Directors referred to above and to notify us of these deposits

Third: the reservation on the circulation of shares of the bank and shares registered in the name of the Chairman of the Board.

On Tuesday, the US Treasury Department listed Arsab Habib’s Islamic Bank of Iraq as a terrorist group.

Habib, the secretary-general of the National Congress Party and a candidate for the victory coalition led by Prime Minister Haider al-Abbadi, said he had conclusive evidence refuting the US Treasury’s “fabrications.”

AL-SADR, ON WEDNESDAY, THAT HIS DOOR IS OPEN TO ALL

Sumer News: Baghdad .

The leader of the Sadrist movement Moqtada al-Sadr, on Wednesday, that his door is open to all, calling on the heads of blocs to meet and dialogue.

"In spite of our differences, let's look for our participants and without compromising our constants, so let's talk, so I call on the leaders of the new alliances to meet," Sadr said in a tweet on his official Twitter Web site.

"MY DOOR IS OPEN AND MY HANDS ARE STRETCHED OUT TO BUILD OUR IRAQ AND FORM A GOVERNMENT OF HONEST AND PATRIARCHAL TECHNOCRATS," he said.

He described Sadr, Wednesday, the intervention of the US envoy in the Iraqi issue as "ugly".

Sadr said, according to a document to his office, in response to a query from one of his supporters, regarding the presence of the US envoy inside Iraq to determine the course of the political process for the next phase before the announcement of the results of the elections, "It is not surprising his presence in Iraq .. But the ugly is his interference in Iraqi affairs, and if it continues to become ugly in Iraq. "

The parliamentary elections took place on 12 May 2018 in Baghdad and the provinces amid tight security.

The Electoral Commission announced hours later, that the participation rate reached 44% with the participation of more than 10 million people out of the 24 million eligible to participate in the elections.

The preliminary results came out of the list of others supported by Muqtada al-Sadr first at the level of the provinces followed by the Fatah alliance supported by Hadi al-Amiri and then the victory coalition led by Haider Abadi.

The political and media circles were preoccupied with monitoring the low turnout of polling stations in different Iraqi cities, where the participation rate reached 44% compared to the 2014 elections which reached 60%.

He explained the low participation rates with many problems in the voting procedures, and the failure of electronic auditing, in addition to the general frustration of the repetition of the traditional political forces themselves.

The US State Department congratulated Iraqis on holding parliamentary elections, calling for a "comprehensive" government that meets the needs of all Iraqis.

According to the map of political positions announced, most of the political parties that fought the elections will work to form alliances to form the next government.

AFTER WILD IRAQI VOTE, CLERIC BROACHES ALLIANCE WITH U.S.-BACKED PRIME MINISTER ABADI

By Isabel Coles and Ali Nabhan
May 15, 2018  

ERBIL, Iraq—Populist cleric Moqtada al-Sadr signaled he is willing to form coalition with Iraq’s U.S.-backed prime minister that could sooth the American concerns following the country’s surprising national parliamentary elections.

Mr. Sadr’s alliance of Shiite Islamists and communists unexpectedly captured the most parliamentary seats over the weekend, voting counts in the provinces of Kirkuk and Dohuk confirmed Tuesday evening. The cleric’s victory upended both American and Iranian calculations, as U.S.-aligned Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi and Iran-friendly candidates lagged behind Mr. Sadr’s coalition.

Mr. Sadr, a Shiite cleric whose militias fought the U.S. after its 2003 invasion of Iraq and participated in atrocities against Sunni Muslims, is a sharp critic of both U.S. and Iranian influence in Iraq. He has opposed the presence of U.S. troops in the country, which Washington sees as a vital part of its security alliance with Baghdad, while he has opposed Iraqis going to Syria to fight in support of Iran’s ally, President Bashar al-Assad.

His strong showing set off a furious scramble among Iraq’s unwieldy set of political parties to create a governing coalition.

Mr. Sadr, who isn’t believed to be seeking the premiership, said on Twitter that he was open to an alliance with Mr. Abadi’s coalition, among others, a move that could give the prime minister a second term.

Mr. Abadi’s coalition was widely expected to win a plurality but placed third. He bet his candidacy on his victory over Islamic State following a brutal three-year war, during which he built a trusted relationship with Washington based on countering terrorism.

Mr. Sadr mobilized his base with vows to do away with corruption and appoint technocrats to the cabinet, ending a system whereby Iraq’s influential sectarian and ethnic political parties divvy up ministries and government offices among themselves. Mr. Sadr’s spokesman, Salah al-Obaidi, said that the program aligned Mr. Sadr with Mr. Abadi’s “Victory” coalition. Mr. Abadi welcomed those comments in his weekly press conference on Tuesday.

For the U.S., which was counting on Mr. Abadi to lead Iraq, the rise of Mr. Sadr is a rude awakening. Even if Mr. Abadi survives as prime minister, his mandate will be severely weakened.
“To the extent that the Trump administration was paying any attention to Iraq, it was betting big on Abadi,” said Kenneth Pollack, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, where he works on Middle Eastern political-military affairs. “There is a lot of trepidation and hand-wringing here in D.C.”

Meanwhile, Iran was maneuvering to retain its influence among Iraqi decision makers, as it confronted the prospect of Mr. Sadr wielding power.
Iranian envoys worked to bring together all Shiite parties excluding Mr. Sadr’s the day after the election, in a bid to choose the next prime minister, but that effort failed on Monday, according to people with knowledge of the talks.

Since Iraq began holding elections in 2003, Iran, a Shiite theocracy, has exerted its influence by bringing together Shiite parties. Iran wants Iraq to be a weak ally so that it can preserve its economic and political sway there and in the wider region, say lawmakers and analysts.
The core of the Iran-backed bloc is the Fateh alliance representing Shiite militias with close ties to Iran, which came second after Mr. Sadr’s, and the State of Law Coalition, headed by former Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. Saad al-Motallabi, a member of the State of Law coalition, denied Iran was playing a role.

Mr. Sadr indicated this week he isn’t interested in forming a coalition with the factions closest to Iran.
“We will not be part of a sectarian alliance,” Mr. Obaidi said.

Iraq’s electoral commission on Tuesday said a final vote count including parliamentary seat allocations would be released “in the coming few days,” setting up a weeklong run-up to a parliamentary session in which the largest bloc will nominate a prime minister.
Whatever government takes shape over the coming weeks will face a daunting list of challenges, including rebuilding areas devastated by the war and preventing the resurgence of Islamic State. Iraq needs more than $80 billion to fix the damage done by the extremist group, the World Bank says, but is struggling to attract foreign investment.

Remember we need the Judiciary to ratify the election results. So this is what they are now attempting to do but they are finding tampering and corruption)

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. 

PRAYER

“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”

IDC FAMILY: "800 Number for Europe and Rest of the World" by Jorachim, 18 MAY

Hi IDC Family.

I have been following you for almost a year and I have invested in Zim and other currencies because I was motivated by my Spirit to participate in the Gaia Revolution.

In all my reading and research I did not find the answers to my questions, nor other sites that talk about RV that were not Americans.

RV / GCR is a global event that affects all of humanity, not just the USA.

So my questions are as follows:

1) The European, African, Asian nations etc will have all the # 800 to be able to participate in the exchange / redemption exploiting the rates of the internet group tier 4?

2) In case of a negative answer to the first question, it will be possible for us to exchange in USA / CANADA or we need residence in order to access the redemption centers?

3) How many days will we have to exchange (t4) ?

Thank you so much!

DISCUSSION : "The Great ZIM Exchange Debate and my 2 Cents" by Carden, 18 MAY

To ZIM or not to ZIM, that is the question. Rather tis nobler to exchange than do without. 

Following is one little person's opinion... take with salt, please. :-) 

The Zim was originally publicly offered by the government of Zimbabwe as a currency, meaning it could be used to buy and sell goods and was backed by the country's central bank. Consider though, the verbiage printed on the note, "I promise to pay the bearer on demand (one hundred trillion dollars) for the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe." Whether it is a bond or a note mattered not when it was originally printed since it was used as an instrument for buying and selling goods. What matters is today, this very minute, and how much will someone give you for it? How much can it be bartered for? How much can one 100 trillion dollar note be insured for?

I have heard that Lloyd's of London has insured 1, 100 Trillion dollar note for $0. 16 after dropping 6 zeros. That's 16 M for every one hundred trillion ZIM note. This insurance wrap will allow multiple Quad (10 x 100 T=160 M) to be traded in a platform in Hong Kong, for instance. A typical example of a platform trade of an "instrument". Whether labeled a banknote, a bond, or an instrument it means the same. So where's the distinction?

Today the Zimbabwe 2008 notes found on the internet are labeled "DEFUNCT AND NOT LEGAL TENDER ANYWHERE. ZIMBABWE NOTES HAVE NO CURRENCY VALUE." No bank anywhere is exchanging these "defunct" notes. If this is the case then how could Lloyd's establish a value? The only possible way is that an inviolable source verified it at this rate (similar to UST). Or, it was backed by a proven asset at this amount with their hard, verified asset. Either way someone somewhere verified that the value was 16 million USD for every 100 T banknote.

Try and get this same value for your zim in most any bank in the world and you will most likely be laughed at. It's been a conspiracy of the privileged few. If you had the necessary dollars to pay for the wrap, and the backing instrument, plus the relationship with a settlement house and so forth you might manage this deal. A billion dollar platform might cost 18 M, give or take a few million dollars. It's an exclusive good old boys club though, by invitation only. 

All of this exclusivity potentially changed when AIIB entered the scene. The AIIB, (Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank) was formed as a vehicle to supplant the IMF. Many are unaware that the IMF is the world's largest collection agency. Their job is as an enforcer. As these nations/governments issue bonds to float their infrastructure or recover from catastrophe, (or simply line the pockets of corrupt politicians) there are investors/entities that back/guarantee the bond issued (which provides for the insurance wrap/guarantee, remember the ZIM "instrument"). Following this initial buy/sell there are one or two subsequent investors/entities that buy the bond and a last "exit" buyer expecting repayment. The bond is always flipped a couple of times with a quick profit made by a few of these good old boys and then the strong arm of the IMF makes sure these lucky old boys are all repaid. What a job! Mafia legitimized! 

While the AIIB is involved in a similar venture it will facilitate the rebuilding of participating nation's infrastructure but using terms like, NON RECOURSE LOAN. This is because we, the ZIM Redeemers will have no need for repayment. We only need to manage the delivery and oversight of these "loans" such that the corrupt leadership with their cronyistic ways will be powerless to interfere. I believe we can do it given the chance.

If we are given the chance, that is. Yes, to ZIM or Not to ZIM. That remains the question. If the banks are being nixed and only redemption centers allowed to exchange ZIM under a "Private Bank" scenario these banks will revolt. Could this be where we are now? Waiting for negotiations to be managed? Well, they are probably asking, how is it possible to cut off the gravy train? It can and must be done because the Financial System, including central banks and all tier 1 banks, have proven they can NOT be trusted to deal fairly. Their days of omnipresent control of money movement all over the world are numbered.

Taking a lesson from President Trump here, if AIIB is reading this; push the button and make it happen now. Move these ZIM exchanges beginning immediately through these Private Redemption Centers in military bases like we've heard about. Send people home with debit cards and cash in pocket and see how fast these tier 1 and 2 banks come kow towing. They will be begging for participation and then it's cooperation vs stalling EVERYONE IN THE WORLD. 

Consider this a brainstorm of One in support of All. 

We got your back AIIB. Make it happen now and so will we! 

Big hugs, 
Carden

DR.CLARKE UPDATE, 18 MAY


TexCat:  Dr. Clarke. Thanks for stopping by. It's good to hear your take on things. I am so excited - MAY, 2018 works for me!

If you could, would you update us of your thoughts as to the timing of our exchanges (e.g. don't be the 1st mouse, wait a few weeks vs. get in, get out & get on with your life) & any other helpful info?

My other request is after this ride is over will you keep in touch & periodically share your insights on whats going on in the world of geopolitics, finance, etc. in order to help me/us be better stewards of this blessing.

I know it's a big ask but I do so want to learn more & you have been a great teacher. Blessings to you & yours.

In gratitude (& with much love and respect), Texcat

Sadir, What I & Trump in May, 2018 have my vote. Woo hoo!

Shout out to all Dinarlandians who contribute to this journey; Onward through the fog! ... Lifeisgood, herewego, packerfan, jayrobbins, sharpo, leroy, seedbeneaththesnow, keys, gia and too many others to list.
....

DR. CLARKE (5-17-18): TEXCAT: We Choose & Plan, to BEGIN EXCHANGING in JUNE - Earlier, rather than Later. For US, this will work out Best.

On our end, NOTHING will be finally decided, until the Substantially Increased Rate Values, are OFFICIALLY PUBLIC.

There's MORE IMPORTANT DETAILED information coming, that cannot be known, UNTIL THAT MOMENT, in order to make Final Decisions.

In our Personal Experience over the years, in these types of "Big PLANNED Monetary Events"......we choose to NEVER EVER follow the masses........especially in 2018.

We Believe, we'll have Plenty of Options, and Plenty of Time, to make those decisions accordingly......with NO WORRIES.

We haven't made any "Post-RV" communication decisions, yet. That's never been our Focus or Intention.

ALL Depends on "Which Way the Wind Blows"......

According to our Viewpoint.....our Opinions.....our Vision.

Dr. Clarke

P.S. Thanks. Agreed. Great Group.

LittleDog:  I went to WF this afternoon to get a couple more Gift Letters notarized. I waited 1.5 hours in line. (no lie). I waited because I felt I needed to get these done today.

Finally it was my turn and the woman looked at my letters and said, "This has Dinar and Dong on it. I cannot notarize these for you". Then she continued in a low voice as she came toward me saying, "I hope you didn't spend a lot of money on this. You know, this is a scam and you'll never get your money back. You can't give this currency (Dinar and Dong) to your church. It's just play money, worth nothing. I really hope you didn't waste a lot of money." With that I said, "No, not that much." Then I left after 2 hours.

I wasn't happy about the time I wasted waiting for my turn so I went to a larger WF in my area.

This time I waited 15 minutes and asked if I can get some gift letters notarized. As this woman looked over my papers, she smiled at me and asked, "Did you make your exchange?" I said, "No, not yet." She said, " There are a lot of really happy people coming in setting up accounts saying this is going to happen soon."

Then she called over a manager and showed her my paperwork. She smiled and said, "Yes, we'll deal with the Dinar but not the Dong yet. That's still being discussed. They will revalue." The first lady notarized the letters and told me stories about her friends and family having some currency. She wanted to know how I heard about this and why did I invest. So, I gave her my story. She also mentioned WF told her it's a scam but she doesn't really believe it with family and friends and clients coming in to get ready!

Then she said, "Please come back after you exchange and let me know!" It's funny how one branch denies or doesn't believe an exchange will occur and another branch is waiting on pins and needles to hear someone has exchanged.

NWMontana:  Sadr, Hakim Keen to Form Largest Iraqi Parliamentary Bloc to Fend off ​Rivals

"An alliance between Sadr, Hakim, Abadi and Sunni and Kurdish parties could obtain a comfortable majority to form a new government. Political observers already believe that Sadr and Hakim’s announcement will be supported by Sunnis and some Kurdish forces."

Footforward   I couldn't give a flying whoop if Winnie the Pooh won the election in Iraq. It has absolutely no bearing on the RV. Trump winning was far more important then who "won" in Iraq...Trump winning the election was far more important then any other political outcome...

The election that mattered already happened.  IMO, the dinar is by far going to be the winner...the dong might revalue... .05,  .10 but compared to where the dinar is going to sit...it's not going to even be close to where the ROI is going to come in...the return is massively going to be on the dinar...remember this is not financial advice...  

Here's what I keep going back to...why would anyone print a currency and have the most security features of any currency on the face of the planet on a worthless currency...that doesn't make any sense...they knew this was going to be worth something.

ADMINBILL: IMPORTANT RV UPDATE, 18 MAY


KTFA: Releasing the RI, 18 MAY

Hawger03 » May 17th, 2018

I know there is a great deal of frustration here for all of us. What we thought should be done by now is not....yet. I have been thinking about what factors might be in play that could delay the RI. In looking at the CBI, it seems that they are ready to go. 

Systems are in place and just waiting on the call for activation. Delta has told us that the people have been talking and are aware of a monetary policy change. The CBI education efforts are to give the details to the citizens as they have been expecting this. So....I then look to the GOI. 

If you have noticed lately, in almost all of Abadi's recent speeches, he has talked a great deal about corruption and seems to put it on the highest priority. Now add in the articles that Samson and Don have brought us about billions being recovered from the corrupt who stole it. I believe we have the answer. 

Consider....if only one minister had escaped with just 1 billion dinar. If Iraq completes it's RI, that minister becomes one of the richest men in the world. The damage could be catastrophic to Iraq and the CBI. Even if all stolen money is not recovered, charging the corrupt and freezing their assets might be a necessity before releasing the RI.....IMHO. 

Just try to ease your frustration and let things play out. This is something we, as investors, have no control over. For me, I work my butt off to do what I can to affect the things I can. Those that I can not, I offer up to the lord in prayer. Let go of the tension and try it

GregHart » May 17th, 2018

My guess, and it's only a guess and IMO...we aren't waiting on Iraq. Were I to guess, I would think they are ensuring Iran does not somehow benefit from the dinar they have and that takes time to track. Look at recent world events and it could make sense. Iraq is done, I believe and it makes sense because the BB's haven't gone up yet despite the public education week which ended just as Iran got slapped.

sam found this as well ... mps who lost are running scared ... and/or running ... loss of immunity is the reason they fight tooth and nail to hang on to their positions ... names we've seen in the articles ... imo

Newspaper: MPs and ministers left Iraq to evade prosecution after files of corruption after the fall of their immunity

2018/05/17 15:00

(39) deputies have been present in the House of Representatives since 2005, but lost in gaining confidence in the electoral process that took place last Saturday, May 12, indicating that a number of them left Iraq to evade From opening files of their corruption.

The newspaper quoted a source in the National Alliance, not named, saying that "a number of Iraqi parliamentarians lost the legislative elections that took place last Saturday," noting that "the Iraqi judiciary has the right to prosecute MPs who lose their immunity . "

He pointed out that "a number of MPs lost in the elections left Iraq during the past hours," noting that "39 deputies were present in parliament since 2005 will not be present in the current session, after they left the country," noting that "most of their families reside outside the country . "

"It was noted that some of the deputies who left the Green Zone before the elections for the management of their election campaigns are no longer after the emergence of their loss in the preliminary results," explaining that "the Presidency of Parliament failed to gather a suitable number of deputies to achieve a quorum of the discussion of the results of the elections announced, which Not held ".

"The parliamentarians who lose their seats will be subject to prosecution if they are found guilty," the newspaper said, quoting lawyer Hussein al-Tamimi. "The judiciary has the right to prosecute MPs who lose their parliamentary immunity and that the charges do not fall on the members of the legislative authority once their electoral term ends, "He said .

Tamimi said that "a number of deputies accused of corruption and extortion and the management of deals within the dome of parliament, but parliamentary immunity was a barrier between them and judicial proceedings," explaining that "lifting immunity means that the deputies will be treated ordinary citizens have rights and duties . "

He expected "to raise several problems against some MPs because of the multiple crises in the corridors of Parliament in its session is nearing completion , " adding that "Even the deputies who are able to escape out of Iraq, they will be subject to prosecution through Interpol international police," stressing The necessity of preventing the travel of any deputy loses his immunity in the event that it has been proven that previous arrest warrants issued against him . "

"The preliminary results of the Iraqi elections show the loss of prominent MPs because of their controversial sectarian statements or corruption charges, such as Hanan al-Fatlawi, Mishan al-Jubouri, Ali Nassif, Ali al-Aalak, Yasser al-Maliki, Kazim al-Sayadi, Ahmed al-Masari, Abbas al-Bayati, Mohamed al-Lakash, Mitham al-Jubouri and Muwaffaq al-Rubaie ."

"The ministers who lost are Adila Hammoud, the health minister accused of corruption, Mohammed al-Sidli, the minister of education accused of mismanagement and the deterioration of the educational reality in his ministry, and Agriculture Minister Falah Hassan Zaidan, while Foreign Minister and former Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari is likely to miss the parliamentary scene And the government fully because of his decision not to run for elections.

DINAR GURUS UPDATE, 18 MAY

5-18-2018   Newshound Guru Mnt Goat   Article: "IS IRAN IS LOSING ITS INFLUENCE IN IRAQ AFTER MUQTADA AL-SADR'S ELECTION?"  Folks is this not exactly what we have been waiting for. Iran’s shrinking influence in Iraq...  ...If you know about Sadr’s influence and what he wants for Iraq I would not hesitate to say the elections when VERY WELL for us. We did not get al-Abadi out of the gates, but I believe he may be the nominee put forwards after all the political juggling is completed this week. 

5-18-2018   Intel Guru Bruce    We do have the ATM machines turned on. We have the lower denomination in there. We had proof today that the military, Kurdistan and other people in Iraq had been paid throughout the country were getting paid with the new rate. ...We still do not know the new rate. We know where the new rate is...We know it is over $4. ...we know the lower denominations are available and the people are using them, and the prices are changing and things are happening.  ...we seem to be on the precipice of something major happening...I know certain banks that are lead banks such as HSBC and Wells Fargo are on high red alert to begin. ...We are in the midst of it going down. ...Our turn is coming, and I would bet our turn is coming very shortly.  [post 2 of 2]

5-18-2018   Intel Guru Bruce   I want to bring you some information that we call Intel that is very excited. We will start with Iraq. We found on Tuesday ...al-Sadr had sort of a majority coalition with him for the vote that took place on Saturday....Yet we also knew that Abadi still was very interested in continuing as Prime Minster of Iraq, but he needed some support ceded from al-Sadr.  The deal was al-Sadr was going to do that if Abadi had the RV rate out so that everybody could see it and it was done.  He had basically until today [Thursday] according to their agreement to do that. The good news is he did it.  The good news is that they will go about setting up their government over the next couple of weeks...and we got this directly from Fallujah today and it was one of our contacts over there...We understand that it was a done deal and that did occur. Abadi will continue as Prime Minister.  [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]

5-18-2018   Intel Guru RayRen98   Election results are expected sometime today  [Thursday]. Varying reports of election percentages are being labeled as false. Abadi reportedly is NOT in the lead.  Payments to the Kurds are reportedly in significant amounts. The Central bank of Iraq signs a MOU with VISA International.  Abadi alliance and Sadr alliance are expected to join together. Parliament is holding a special meeting on Saturday to discuss their disfavor with the election results. Hmmmmmm?

5-18-2018   Newshound Guru Kaperoni   The CBI stated a year or so ago, once they start it could take 2 years to delete the zeros.  What that means is that the dinar will appreciate gradually (float) as stated in the IMF Article IV Consultation.  My view is that once the conditions are met, They accept Article VIII, and move to a float, it could take another 2 years to raise the value of the dinar to a value where the zeros are gone.  Not saying it will take that long but it is a directly related to investment.  This is why the IMF stated the Balassa-Samuelson effect in the 2012 Article IV.  The truth is, if investors are lined up to participate in Iraq, it should happen fairly quickly But it is up to Iraq to create the right environment for the value to rise.  At that point all we can do is hope that investors come to Iraq, begin the substantial rebuilding and investment phase creating inflationary pressure on the CBI to raise the value.  [post 2 of 2]

5-18-2018   Newshound Guru Kaperoni    [What I would like to know...if they will have to wait for the government to be fully seated, of which they have 90 days following the election to do. If so, the wait continues...]  Never said when the 3 month IMF compliance was up the CBI would move to Article VIII directly.  There are many reasons to not delay, but the CBI must make that decision.  If the CBI feels they should wait for formation of the new GOI, yes we could be waiting a  bit.  I keep telling people there is no RV, RI or any kind of overnight event.  The dinar can only appreciate gradually over time. That means a new GOI, stable government is important.  Why?...Because a new GOI and stable government will give confidence to investors to bring money/capital into Iraq.  This and only this is what will make the dinar appreciate in value.  So if your looking for some event, some overnight wealth, the dinar is not for you.  [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]
