The Status of the Reinstatement of the Iraqi Dinar IQD


Walkingstick (KTFA)

The timing/change of the exchange rate, of.. any country... is not, dictated ..by, the date/s listed on the UN operational rate/s of exchange..

Adam Montana

[I've been remembering back to Iraq being removed from Chapter 7 (UN) and some of the process involved....How does current GOI environment compare and what is similar / different getting HCL in place?]

I think the main difference would be the players involved - Chapter 7 was an outside decision. They were at the mercy of the UN(etc) on that one. HCL is not that way - this is an internal decision. The HCL is done when Iraq says it is done, and no outside influences can stop them. 

[What’s up with the GOI formation? Will it happen? In your opinion, do you think this is coming closer to an RV?]

GOI formation is proceeding very good IMO. Everyone should keep in mind that Iraq will never have a fully seated government with absolutely 0 contested seats. We are talking about a society that operates very different than anywhere outside the Middle East.  80% good is about as good as it will ever get, and we are pretty much there. 

Bruce (The Big Call)

We do not normally do rates, but I will tell you this...the dong has been going up in value. The dong was in just under the $5 range today. Just under $5 on the front screen. I can’t tell you where the dinar is on the front screen right now, because I do not know that number.

...We have been told that the rates for these currencies should be updated and new by this afternoon [Thursday]. 

...That is usually a good sign of things happening on the Forex, on the World Markets.

...I know that was the intention.

We know that the timing of this is designed. I am pointed toward before Christmas...That is the information I am getting. I am not getting for us that is pointing to after the first of the year or after Christmas. I have heard this is intended to go by or before Saturday...Intention of this White House of our President Trump is to let us have this for us before Christmas.

...I am encouraged by the fact that we are there. We have a rough time frame that we think is still intact.

Mountain Goat

We are just waiting for the next step. I know they have a target for EARLY 2019 to reinstate the currency...We almost witnessed this reinstatement last January and if it was not for some factors that occurred back then we would not be here today again at this time...I am telling everyone now...the flood gates are about to open. It is all going to come real fast and with a great change to Iraq. With this flood will bring what we want- finally! Be patient and hang in there, it is coming. It may be very quiet now but not for very long.





JCNoble:  CBI could still release this today so RV can still happen before Christmas.

RVAlready:  Will Allaq push the bottom today? Inquiring minds want to know. :)

Sunny:  Good Morning. Ever heard of "Don't open till Christmas Day"

Annie68:  Maybe that's when we all get to open our present from Iraq??

Sunny:  maybe our Christmas present from the UST

TheeyeGuy:  They need to pull the trigger, hit the button, turn it loose.

JCNoble:  We need for whoever is holding it up to let it go!

Sunny:  IMO this is a huge chess game. Move, countermove. More is being negotiated, worked out than we are privy too and probably could not imagine. What we get to see that is reported may have nothing to do with what's going on in the background. Much more at stake than our getting to go by Christmas.


Kman:  The most complex financial transaction in the history of man. Hmmmm. You'd think after 14 years they would have figured it out. I think there's a lot more to the story than we're aware of. JMHO.

RVAlready:  Many years ago, I heard from someone who had read "the plan". Then, it was 9000 pages of legal documents. So, yes, way bigger than you or me. This included the framework for all baskets.

KMan:  Well, with nine days left to the end of the year, lets hope someone gets their act together and moves this along.

Briona:  One thing positive is that they are having meetings daily, and not pushing it a week away like in the past.

Annie68:  Finding it a little hard to believe that everything is done, since they keep stalling.

RVAlready:  Annie, hate to say it, but I think the target has been 1 Jan 2019 for quite a while. They just kick the can from one target date to another. This time, everything actually looks ready to go.


Buckeyefan:  question for the room, are we facing another big delay with the latest from Washington? Just curious not being negative or positive just curious others thoughts.

Yada:  do not see the issues with the shut down effecting the RV,,,,just another issue that involves government affairs but not related…. But, what the RV process has done for all of use, or at least most of us, is made people aware of the affairs of governments where as before, we stayed in our little corners of the world

Briona: The longest government shutdown in history was during the Clinton administration and that one was only 3 weeks.

Buckeyefan:  Yada, not shut down per se the removing troops from Syria, opening up flood gates for the nut jobs as a reason to revoke or rescind stability/security a new uprising.

Yada:  What the news is not telling you is we are not removing our contingency forces,,,,that would be a grave error as we've experieced with Iraq and ISIS,,

Buckeyefan:  Yada, so true about staying in corners and not paying attention to the government, so true!!! people continue to say that's not my concern, oh oh but it has a long reach…… Just like the gov shut down, its terrible for those impacted but it's not all the people we think but it sounds so harsh when in fact it's not as many people as one may think.

Yada:  Im of the mind there is more going on that will launch this RV and may not be the issue of the cabinet members. yes, stalling for a targeted date with banks ready to move in Iraq as well as here,,,plus we've been told it not the government affairs that delay it,,,

Luvwulfs:  Agreed and I think that date is very close.

Elmerf123456:  Impact/Impactful.

Such interesting words.

As the year draws to an end, and 2019 is on the horizon starting a brand new year, I challenge all of you to think of the word impact and impactful.

Ask yourself what impact have you made on your family your friends your finances your career and in your life in general in 2018.

How have those choices impacted your lives. Good? Bad? No Ripple?

What have you learned from it?  For me personally, this has been a life turning event, a life saving event and a year I will never forget.

As we take a pause to celebrate the holiday season, reflect on your year and ask yourself what impact will you make in 2019 and will it be impactful in your professional and personal lives and a conduit for growth?

I wish everyone Peace, Health, Happiness and Prosperity!

Happy Holidays Everyone!   Elmer


12-22-2018   Newshound Guru Kaperoni    ...There will never be a re-instatment.  A currencies appreciation depends on a countries economic success.  Nothing happens overnight.  Nothing is happening through the end of the year... Iraq has much yet to do before they can begin to float the dinar.
12-22-2018   Newshound/Intel Guru RVAlready   The RV seems poised to go. I think it is a high priority item for Iraq at this point. They have invested a lot of time doing all the preparatory steps. I do not think they will put it on the back burner at this point.

12-22-2018   Intel Guru RayRen98   The vote on the 5 remaining cabinet members is supposed to take place on SaturdayThese are reported as new names for consideration.  It appears that the citizens are not happy with these new candidates...Time Will Tell.  On Iraqi TV, requests for Mahdi to show the economic reform were sporadically broadcast.

Iraq Planning Currency Redenomination!!!

NOTE....February 06, 2010 

BAGHDAD -- The Iraqi Central Bank is planning to redenominate the national currency in an effort to ease transactions and allow people to carry less paper money, RFE/RL's Radio Free Iraq (RFI) reports.

Mudhhir Muhammad Salih
, a member of a Central Bank advisory panel, told RFI that a plan has been made to remove three zeros from the currency and phase out the current banknotes late this year.

Salih said by the end of 2010 the new banknotes will be fully introduced while the old banknotes will be gradually removed from circulation.  

Both will be legal tender in Iraq until the old notes are completely withdrawn.

Iraqi officials have had a long-running plan to redenominate the Iraqi dinar. In 2006, the Finance Ministry recommended to the Central Bank that it carry out such a plan.

Salih pointed out that banks are having a hard time accepting cash savings and deposits, but by dropping the zeros it will make it easier for both the banks to deal with their customers and for the general public to carry money. He said some 80 percent of Iraq's money supply is cash in circulation.

Salih added that in 1990 the value of banknotes in circulation was about 25 billion Iraqi dinars but is currently some 25 trillion dinars.

Economic analyst Hilal al-Tahhan told RFI that the bank's move is overdue. He said he expects the currency change to go smoothly because of the decision to allow both the old and new banknotes to coexist, leading to less turbulence in the economy.

The current exchange rate is 1,167 Iraqi dinars to the U.S. dollar.
GMan:  Not looking for a political debate here, but just posting this to be careful and on the lookoutafter reading H.R. 7213 that our Potus signed into law yesterday... See something, please tell someone. This has me quite concerned, so please be careful over the Holiday traveling...Hopefully we don't get a Presidential Alert warning.. 

Today, I have signed into law H.R. 7213, the “Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Act of 2018” (the “Act”).  The Act redesignates the Department of Homeland Security’s Domestic Nuclear Detection Office as the Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Office (CWMD Office).

The CWMD Office will coordinate with other Federal efforts and develop a strategy and policy to plan for, detect, and protect against unauthorized chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear materials or devices in the United States....  

The Act, however, raises constitutional concerns.

Section 2(a)(10) of the Act purports to require the Assistant Secretary for the CWMD Office, a position created by the Act, to consult with certain congressional committees before making any changes in the structure or requirements of the “Securing the Cities” program.

My Administration will treat this provision as advisory.  I hope that consultation will be possible, and I recognize the benefits of working with the Congress on the “Securing the Cities” program.  Nevertheless, the Act’s mandatory consultation provision is not consistent with the Constitution’s separation of powers.

Section 2(g)(6) of the Act purports to require the Secretary of Homeland Security annually to provide a report to the Congress that includes recommendations for any necessary statutory changes regarding the CWMD Office, or, if no statutory changes are deemed necessary, an explanation of that conclusion.

My Administration will treat this provision in a manner consistent with Article II, section 3 of the Constitution, which provides the President the discretion to recommend to the Congress only “such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient.”

Don961:  Pompeo speaks with Iraqi PM on defeating ISIS

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo spoke with Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdul Mahdi on the phone Friday, underlining the U.S.-Iraq partnership to defeat ISIS, the State Department said in a statement.

Pompeo noted that the U.S.-led coalition would continue to work with Iraqi Security Forces to defeat the ISIS remnants, according to the statement.

He also reiterated his support for the continuation and deepening of the U.S.-Iraq partnership.

The two officials also discussed the territorial defeat of the ISIS in Syria, which was the rationale behind the Trump administration's decision to pull out U.S. troops from Syria.

The pullout decision also led to speculation about possible adjustment of U.S. military presence in Iraq.

Earlier this month, Iraq celebrated the first anniversary of full liberation of all Iraqi land from the ISIS militants.

Some observers noted that the influence of Iranian-allied factions in Iraq's political and security arenas might result in continued U.S. military presence in the country.

There are 5,200 U.S. troops currently deployed in Iraq's capital of Baghdad and the country's north and west.      link

After hours, the demonstrators left the sites of the protests after burning tires and closing some streets in the city.

The demonstrators called for demoting the current government, dissolving its council and preventing political blocs from imposing their will on the province as a whole.

Later reports said that calmness was restored to the demonstration sites, after closing them for few hours.    LINK

22nd December, 2018

Iraq maintained its 37th position in the world's fifth largest gold reserves in December despite buying 6.5 tonnes in September, the World Gold Council said on Sunday.

The Plan: RV/GCR Release = Indictments Unsealed = Mass Arrests = Martial Law Enforced = US Space Command Active = Military Tribunals Held = Republic Would Be Restored = GESARA Law Implemented = New Elections Held = Fair Tax System for All


* Evidently China and Iraq have been exchanging for four weeks, US private bank exchanges have been going on since Mon. Dec. 3 (said to be in SKRs), the GCR/RV formally initiated in Hong Kong on Mon. Dec. 10, while as ofWed. Dec. 12 the new US Treasury Notes were live on bank screens. On Sat. Dec. 15 the Elders authorized that asset-backed currencies could begin international trade at 2am EST on Sun. Dec. 16

*The Plan was to save the economy from a Stock Market crash through announcement of the global Gold/asset-backed currency standard in 209 nations across the globe, which has heavily relied on the Cabal New York Stock Market to function. Destruction of that system was essential for the Global Currency Reset to happen. 

*On Dec. 18 Alan Greenspan told investors to get out of the Market. The next day the Fed raised interest rates, which initiated a slow moving crash in a market that has crippled almost 20% since Oct. 1, been cut in half and was back to 2008 levels, with stocks on track for their worst month in a decade. 

*By Thurs. Dec. 20 an official, though behind closed doors announcement was made about the US dollar being on the gold/asset-backed standard. On that same Dec. 20 Paymasters, Tiers 1, 2, 3, Tier 4 Group A and certain Humanitarian Projects had been completely paid out (most in SKRs). 

* Trump was shutting down the government this weekend before Christmas to shut down the US Treasury, plus eliminate any Cabal banks from taking in Zim bond notes and other currency. 

*Rumor was that we would be contacted directly by text or email to begin redemption/ exchanges at any time before Christmas Dec. 25

*Our appointments would be right before an unsealing of Mass Indictments and subsequent arrests, which appeared to be slated to begin right after ChristmasDec. 25

* President Trump had signed an Executive Order that federal employees would be off work Dec. 24, 25 and our appointments would likely be at military bases with HSBC staff. 

*Currency exchanges asking for the higher back screen rates and Zim redemptions would be completed by Jan 7, the same date as the general public would begin exchanging.

B. Indictments Unsealed = Mass Arrests = Martial Law = US Space Command = Military Tribunals:

*On Fri. Dec. 7 with President Trump aboard Air Force One, the presidential plane changed its Air Traffic Call Sign to “Q 0” - said to indicate that this Fri. Dec. 7 was Day One of a countdown to Martial Law, which appeared to be declared the weekend of Dec. 15-16 when a “QAnon” message was sent from top US generals to the American people warning them of what was soon to occur (mass arrests). This explained why Trump was about to order the immediate creation of the US Space Command

*Following the expected GCR/RV there would be a transition period of several weeks where unsealing of over 66,568 indictments would instigate Mass Arrests. 

*Most of those indictments were said to contain charges of child pornography and exploitation, led by Bill, Hillary and their Clinton Foundation who were charged with "Crimes against Children" according to page 294 of Michael Horowitz's Office of Inspector General Report.https://www.facebook.com/604548277/posts/10156586189298278/

* After Christmas at least Nine Days of Chaos were expected within the country with over 66,568 indictments being served for arrests of prominent elites. 

* The Mass Arrests were essential to gain control of our financial system and for Trump’s war against child exploitation in an extensive international Satanic child sex trafficking ring funded by the CIA, run by the Vatican and enforced, along with drug and gun running, by various mafias – all of whom were Cabal fighting BRICS takeover of the global economy for the people. 

*Since 1913 none of the income tax collected by the IRS has gone to the federal government. The federal government was totally funded through Back Budget sources such as drug trafficking and off-budget accounting on the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) – see History of the IRS as explained in this update (D, E, F). 

*The need for the fall of the Cabal, Federal Reserve and IRS went back to the Federal Reserve Charter. The Charter was reported by a Farmer Claims legal team (which won a Supreme Court Case that would eventually result in the GCR) to allocate 67% of the income tax collected by the IRS be divided in the Crown of England, 23% be paid as a dividend to 300 shareholders of the Federal Reserve Bank and the last 10% be paid to the employees of the IRS to keep them quiet. 

*On Dec. 21 Congress was scheduled to go on vacation. Because of pending arrests on at least 1/3 if not more of Congress involved in the Cabal, few were expected to come back on Jan. 3. This could create nine days of chaos within the country, so it was advised to be prepared with food, water, fuel and cash in case stores, banks and businesses were closed due to unrest. 

*Q said that the FISA declassification would “bring down the House” and aDec. 11 Intel Report stated: “U.S. government officials listed in the sealed indictments have been given notice of imminent criminal prosecution and a lifetime at GITMO.” The Clintons, Biden, Pence and George Bush Jr. were videotaped being given envelops at Cabal Leader George HW Bush’s funeral – that were believed to be an official notice that they had been served their indictments. 

*On Jan. 2 2019 Federal courts across the nation would begin trials for those charged and arrested as a result of the 66,568 indictments, plus Military Tribunals would start for those sent to GITMO. 

C. Restored Republic = GESARA Law = New Fair Elections and Tax System

*By year’s end Central Banks would be reorganized, the Federal Reserve and IRS would be eliminated and announcements would be made on the US Restored Republic, GESARA Law and a new Flat Tax System - said to be 17% on newly bought items only, with no tax on medicine or food. 

*The Cabal was on notice to settle all remaining outstanding GESARA compliance issues (meaning no more wars between countries) before the new fiscal year began on Jan. 1 2019. Those countries and Central Banks not complying with GESARA Law would not be able to participate in the Global Currency reset and international trade. 

*The new US elections would be completed sometime in April-May 2019

*Last week on the international scene, Cardinal George Pell was found guilty of sexually abusing children and fired by Pope Francis because he was “elderly.” Pell was in charge of financial matters at the Vatican and a secret controller of most world government leaders. 

*A new head of the Committee of 300, the secret government of the 13 ruling bloodline families who were now backing the new Quantum Financial System, would to take power next year, meaning Queen Elizabeth would be handing committee reins to a younger person (hint: not Charles and not William).

D. Dec. 21 2018 2:25 pm EST Intel Alert: Operation Disclosure: GCR/RV Intel Alert for December 21, 2018 Operation Disclosure (Disclaimer: The following is an overview of the current situation based on intelligence leaks received from several sources which may or may not be accurate. Other confirmed sources may also be included in this overview.)

1. The Republic of the United States of America is being restored in real time. Significant progress (that is not yet visible to the public eye) for the restoration of the Republic has been made.The departure of specific government officials (Rogers, Sessions, Kelly, Mattis) means they've played their role and accomplished their mission.

2. The BRICS are continuing their efforts to bring all nations to a consensus in to accepting the new quantum financial system (QFS). Otherwise, the Alliance will crash the stock market without notice and proceed with the transition in full force, no matter what.

3. The RV was expected to begin sometime around these events.

F. Dec. 21 2018 12:28 am EST History of the IRS, Reader: Reader: History of the IRS
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwvq_JKVcdl&feature=player_embeddedatexascash3502 (This video is no longer available.)

1. The below information came from a Jan. 1993 Farm Claims Case that passed the Supreme Court (and was signed into law, but not implemented, by President Clinton, nor by any president since) where it was proven that the US income tax and IRS were fraudulent. 

2. In 1933 the United States declared bankruptcy and made all US citizens subject to the repayment of the national debt. The bankers chartered the Delaware Corporation known as the Bureau of Internal Revenue - though this corporation was illegally masquerading as part of the government, placing them under constant threat of a lawsuit. 

3. In 1953 in order to escape litigation and avert all income tax payments to the International Monetary Fund, they changed the name of the Bureau of Revenue to the IRS and moved jurisdiction outside the United States to Puerto Rico, making it part of the Department of the Treasury of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. 

4. Revenue Agent: "any duly authorized commonwealth internal revenue agent of the Department of the Treasury of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico" 27 CFR 26.11. The US Code lists the IRS as the Trust Fund #62 Puerto Rico special fund (Internal Revenue), Section 31 U.S.C. 1321 (1) (62). 

5. On Oct. 28 1977 the United States as a "Corporation" and "State" declared insolvency. State banks and most other banks were put under control of the "Governor" of the "Fund" (I.M.F.). 26 IRC 165 (g) (i); U.C.C. 1-201 (23), C.R.S. 39-22-103.5. 

6. The I.M.F. was over the Central Banks of North America, which in turn were owned by the Crown of England. 

7. The IRS individual Master File contained every transaction and financial record gathered by IRS officials throughout a taxpayer’s lifetime. One of the codes determines the kind of tax paid. The IRS 6209 Manual was used to manually decode the records IRS maintained about you, including the Individual Master File (IMF) and the Business Master File (BMF). They have incorrectly classified all Americans as domiciled corporations in Guam, Virgin Islands, or Puerto Rico. "TC 150" code word for residents of Guam, the Virgin Islands, or Puerto Rico.

8. All taxpayers who filled out a 1040 form were subject to a tax for doing commerce with the UK under a treaty with the United States. Charles Bealle: "there is no law that requires the average American worker in the private sector to pay a direct un-apportioned tax on their labor in compensation for services, there is no law." Business Master File 390-399, U.S. Tax Treaty Claims: Subject to a tax from the United Kingdom. IRS 6209 Manual.

9. Taxes collected on the 1040 form were sent to the Crown of England as a tribute payment. The Crown of England was a sovereign corporation located in the 677 acres of "The City" found within the heart of greater London. The strip of land contained the most powerful banking houses in the world such as The Bank of England, Lloyds of London, House of Rothschild. 

10. It was these bankers and their counterparts - the Temple Bar Attorneys - that constituted the power base known as "The Crown." 

11. Even though the Queen of England was a member of this Crown Club, she was not the corporate head. That job belonged to the Pontiff of Rome.

12. The Pontiff of Rome was given control over the monarchy with the signing of the Treaty of 1213 between King John and Pope Innocent III, which forever pledged England as a vassal state of the Holy Roman Empire. 

13. In 1297 that treaty was used as a precedent to incorporate the City of London as a city/state controlled by the Vatican, which in turn governed England without directly relying on the monarchy. Just as the United States was subject to the Crown of England, so too were the subjects of the British Empire enslaved with debt by the financial division of the Vatican headquartered within the City of London.

14. Today this small clique of bankers have full authority over affairs of parliament and has been the case since 1694 when Pope Innocent XI hired William of Orange to dispose of the Stewart kings, and then chartered with the Bank of England. 

15. Located within the Crown of England was the Federal Reserve Charter. The Charter was reported by the Farmer Claims legal team to allocate 67% of the income tax collected by the IRS be divided in the Crown of England, 23% be paid as a dividend to 300 shareholders of the Federal Reserve Bank and the last 10% be paid to the employees of the IRS to keep them quiet about this sweet deal. 

16. Since 1913 none of the income tax collected by the IRS has gone to the federal government. The federal government was totally funded through Back Budget sources such as drug trafficking and off-budget accounting on the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR). 

17. (It was the opinion of this author that taxpayers would be paid back taxes they had paid out. In a 1992 audit of the Federal Reserve they found an account with $800 trillion in it which could be used to pay taxpayers back.) 

G. Dec. 21 2018 12:25 am EST US Taxes Paid to City of London, Reader:Reader: The Taxes were Paid to the City of London

1. In 1871 the corporation of the USA was born, known as THE UNITED STATES. Note the capitalization because it was important. 

2. This corporation, owned by foreign interests, moved right in and shoved the original "organic" version of the Constitution into a dusty corner. With the "Act of 1871," our Constitution was defaced in the sense that the title was block-capitalized and the word "for" was changed to the word "of" in the title.

3. The original Constitution drafted by the Founding Fathers, was written in this manner: "The Constitution for the united states of America". Note “for.” The altered version reads: "THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA". It is the corporate constitution. Note “of.”

4. The Corporate Constitution was not the same document you might think it was. The Corporate Constitution operated in an economic capacity and has been used to fool the People into thinking it was the same parchment that governed the Republic. It absolutely was not.

5. Capitalization — an insignificant change? Not when one is referring to the context of a legal document, it isn't. Such minor alterations have had major impacts on each subsequent generation born in this country. What the Congress did with the passage of the Act of 1871 was create an entirely new document, a constitution for the government of the District of Columbia. The kind of government THEY created was a corporation. The new, altered Constitution served as the Constitution of the Corporation, and not of America. Think about that for a moment.

6. This Corporate Constitution did not benefit the Republic. It served only to benefit the Corporation. It did nothing good for you or me — and it operated outside of the original Constitution. Instead of absolute rights guaranteed under the "organic" Constitution, we now have "relative" rights or privileges. One example of this was the Sovereign's right to travel, which has been transformed under corporate government policy into a "privilege" which we must be licensed to engage in. This operates outside of the original Constitution.

7. Congress committed TREASON against the People, who were considered Sovereign under the Declaration of Independence and the organic Constitution. When we consider the word "Sovereign," we must think about what the word means. http://www.serendipity.li/jsmill/us_corporation.htm

US CODE: Title 28,3002. Definitions
(15) "United States" means —
(A) a Federal corporation;
(B) an agency, department, commission, board, or other entity of the United States; or
(C) an instrumentality of the United States.

8. The Fourteenth Amendment has had precisely the effect that its nineteenth-century Republican party supporters intended it to have: it has greatly centralized power in Washington, D.C., and has subjected Americans to the kind of judicial tyranny that Thomas Jefferson warned about when he described federal judges as those who would be "constantly working underground to undermine the foundations of our confederated fabric." 

9. It's time for all Americans to reexamine the official history of the "Civil War" and its aftermath as taught by paid government propagandists in the "public" schools for the past 135 years.

10. My comments:

11. After the Civil War the Republic was broke. We made the mistake of borrowing money from England. As a consequence we were forced to draft the Organic Act of 1871 that established a 10 mile square area of Washington DC – a country within a country. 

12. This was the same as the City of London and Vatican City – totally separate entities. 

13. Washington DC was supposed to be totally contained within the 10 mile square, but it spread out over the whole country. It had it’s own flag with three stars – one for the City of London, one for Vatican City and one for Washington DC. 

14. The City of London was the financial center. Washington became the military center. The Vatican decided what wars would be fought to promote their agenda. 

15. The US income tax system was established because we borrowed money from the City of London. 

16. The Washington Corporation was moved to Puerto Rico, as was the IRS. 

17. The Pontiff of Rome was given control over the Monarchy with the signing of the Treaty of 1213 between King John and Pope Innocent III, which forever pledged England as a vassal state of the Holy Roman Empire. 

18. All of US taxes went to England: 67% of our taxes went to the Crown of England, 23% went to the 300 shareholders of the Federal Reserve Bank and 10% to the IRS agents to keep their mouths shut about this sweet deal. 

19. Since 1913 none of the income tax collected by the IRS has gone to the Federal Government. The Federal Government was funded through black budget sources such as drug trafficking and off-budget accounting on the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR). 

H. Dec. 20 2018 Strategy To Dismantle the Fed, X22 Report (video): X22 Report: The Strategy that is Being Used to Dismantle the Fed

The MSM were trying to make sense of what was happening with the Fed. They were trying to make it seem that this was just an adjustment to the rates. Trump controlled the narrative and from his latest tweet, you could see the entire plan was right on schedule. The push to take down the Fed was being executed. The patriots were using a strategy which was 100 years old. The entire economy structure was about to change. 

I. Dec. 21 2018 11:10 pm EST Stores Stockpiling, X22 Report (video): X22 Report: Stores are Stockpiling Goods, Anons were Right 

We can see the economic numbers continue to decline and the people are starting to notice something is wrong with the peoples economy. Trump and the patriots are preparing for an economic shift, but how do you plan for a transition without hurting the people. Use tariffs as the cover, tariffs can be used to reset trade but it can be used to make store owners stock up on supplies, get prepared. Trump is pushing for the wall to be funded, the House voted yes and now it moves to the Senate. Mark Meadows says if the government shutdown government employees should not be paid. Mattis resigned, the deep state is reeling from this, they are in extreme panic. Peace talks are going well in Afghanistan, Trump ready to bring home troops. Brennan is freaking out and he knows D Day is coming. Q drops more bread and shows us how Obama and Clinton had a 16 year plan to change America.
