Breiting - Currency is Iraq's Savior!, 26 DEC

Everyone knows I don’t do date and rate but people [ask] what’s the season [approximate time]? 

The reason people are asking me that…the reason that question has been so heavy lately is because you start looking at the price per barrel. It’s getting into that range where it’s a threat to Iraq.

That means you guys are paying attention! That makes me so happy… These guys are getting to the breaking point. Bingo…Thank God for us that we’ve invested in a currency that is Iraq’s weapon.

That is their savior to add value to their currency. But it’s a two-pronged attack for Iraq. They [Iraq] need to do two things with the oil prices going down. 

They need business and international investments coming into Iraq. Well they’ve set that stage up for the last five or six years…and they haven’t stopped. They’re still trying to do it today…the other part is if they are not making money selling energy…what currency are they using to make money off that energy? The U.S. dollar. If they are not bringing in any U.S. dollars that cuts them off at the knees, right? 

They need to add value to their currency. That’s exactly what they’re talking about.

Every once in a while I’ll get an email that says, “Hey, what are your sources saying in Iraq.” I don’t have “sources” anywhere. 

There’s nobody in Iraq that can explain geopolitics and how this works or how currency works or anything like that. They don’t have a damn clue. The people I talk to actually they have access to people in the parliament…what I do is try to get at is, what are they talking about…then I can gauge what they are thinking. 

That’s all it is. I don’t have “insider” information. I don’t need it and neither should you. That’s the whole point of me trying to talk and frame this up the way it is, the reality of it based on geopolitics…you should be very very happy right now…I know this stuff takes a long time…it was never meant to be a “get quick rich scheme”…that’s the hype that I hate. Hype is out of the window…Reality. Geopolitics. Markets. That’s it. You should be very very happy.

Restored Republic via a GCR: Update as of Dec. 26, 2018

Compiled 26 Dec. 12:01 am EST by Judy Byington

Below is a summary of information from the Internet. It would be up to the individual reader to do their own research and decide whether or not it was valid. Patience is a Virtue. Having Virtue is a sign of a good moral being. Good moral beings have the power to overcome evil and change the world.

A Special Thank You to Martha for her untiring research efforts in discerning the Truth and to Ken who uncovers unlimited intel on pedophiles to help us Save the Children.

Judy Note: Where we think we are as of Dec. 26:

A. The Plan: RV/GCR Release = Indictments Unsealed = Mass Arrests = Martial Law Enforced = US Space Command Active = Military Tribunals Held = Republic Restored = GESARA Law Implemented = New Elections Held = Fair Tax System for All
*Since 1913 the Federal Reserve has collected 100% of US taxpayer monies for the Crown of England and 300 private shareholders of the Federal Reserve Bank. The US government has been totally funded through off-budget accounting in Back Budgets of gun, drug and human trafficking. The GCR would dissolve the Federal Reserve and return US taxpayer money back to the People.

*Redemption/Exchange Appointments: Rumor was that we could be contacted as early as the evening of Dec. 25 by an emergency text or email asking us to follow instructions to set our appointments. Some type of announcement was expected to create disorder and cover RV redemptions.

*Stock Market Crash: A Stock Market crash was essential to The Plan to take down the fiat US dollar and corrupt Federal Reserve. Since Oct. 1 the Stock Market has been in free fall, lost all of 2018 gains, reached 2008 levels and the Dow dived over 650 points in the worst Christmas Eve close ever, following the market's worst week in a decade. With an expected introduction of temporary Martial Law after Dec. 25, investors were expected to sell their shares in mass, resulting in the Stock Market likely dropping another 25% or more. The Plan was to save the economy through a revaluation of the fiat US Dollar into gold/asset-backed US Note via a Global Currency Reset.

*Likely appointments to redeem/exchange would be at military bases (with civil personnel off work for the Christmas-New Year holidays) and believed would be scheduled during the unsealing of Indictments, Mass Arrests and declaration of Martial Law – that could be going on right now, or would begin right after Dec. 25.

*Trump has extended for one year to Dec. 20 2019, the National Emergency Executive Order #13818 originally signed Dec. 20 2017. In addition to other restrictions, it froze all assets of those charged with Crimes Against Humanity.

*Q had said that government elites listed in now over 70,000 indictments had been given notices of their criminal prosecution. On Fri. Nov. 30 the Clintons, Obamas, Bidens, Pences and George Bush Jr.s including Jeb, were videotaped at Cabal Leader George HW Bush’s funeral being handed envelops believed to contain their notices of indictment.

*While the Fri. Nov. 30 handing out of indictments to global elites at President HW Bush’s funeral appeared to be Day One of a countdown to Mass Arrests, a week later Fri. Dec. 7 appeared to be Day One of a countdown to Martial Law when a “QAnon” message was sent from top US generals to the American people warning them of what was soon to occur.

*The message indicated that Mass Arrests and Martial Law could come into effect by Jan. 1, 2019, while Trump’s March 1, 2018 Military Tribunal/Court Martial legal provisions go into effect that same Jan. 1, 2019.

*The US was under a Dec. 21 2017 National Emergency Executive Order – extended to Dec. 21 2019 - that took away assets of anyone involved in human trafficking.

*Mass Arrests: On Dec. 24 prison barges from New York and California were pictured headed to GITMO.

*Government Shutdown: The shutdown of the U.S. government over the holidays was about a financial reboot and upcoming military tribunals. Congress was in recess and President Trump’s recent Executive Order excused federal employees from work. Civilians working for the military have reportedly been given extensive leave over the holidays.

President Trump was staying at the White House instead of going to Florida for Christmas in order to control the situation.

The shutdown included closing the old US Treasury, which along with closure of government offices including the Federal Reserve and IRS, would prevent Cabal-owned banks from taking in Zim Bond Notes, exchanging currencies and participating in the GCR/RV. https://www.cnbc.com/2018/12/23/treasury-secretary-mnuchin-held-calls-with-the-ceos-of-major-banks-to-discuss-the-market-turmoil.html

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

*On Jan. 2 2019 Federal courts across the nation would begin trials for those arrested as a result of over 70,000 indictments, plus was the start date for Military Tribunals for those sent to GITMO.

* It was not expected that Congress would return on Jan. 3 because of the government shutdown, plus pending arrests on at least 1/3 if not more, of Congressional members named somewhere in over 70,000 sealed indictments.

*Mass Arrests could create 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 civil unrest.

* Zim redemptions and currency exchanges requesting the higher back screen rates would need to be completed by Jan 7, the same date as the general public was set to begin exchanging.

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

Samson:  Independence of central banks: Justifications and standards

25th December, 2018 by Dr.. Haidar Hussein Al-Tohma

Many central banks have given more depth and depth to understanding the nature of the role played by the Central Bank in the economic activity of the country through its powers and the real possibilities to enable it to exercise its functions and functions to achieve the objectives of monetary policy, so we find that many countries have modified or enacted new laws Ensuring the independence of its central banks.

2- Objectives of the Central Bank

The central bank enjoys greater independence when it is mandated by law to set a set number of objectives. The attribution of a large number of functions to the central bank is attributed to the weakness of its autonomy in its management of monetary policy. On the other hand, the precise identification of the central bank's task, with emphasis and emphasis on stabilizing the internal and external value of the currency, is one of the most important indicators of the independence of this bank from the government.

3. Government representation in the administration of the Central Bank

The composition of the boards of directors of central banks has a significant impact on the nature of the relationship between banks and governments. In some cases, these councils serve as an official channel for the government to exercise its direct influence on the decisions of the central bank. In many countries, the government appoints most, if not all, members of the board of directors of the central bank. Which enables the government to exercise its influence through its direct presence in those councils. Government representatives may enjoy the rights of other members, including the right to vote on central bank decisions, giving them greater leverage in influencing bank decisions and policies.

4. The limits of the Central Bank in financing the government

Most countries have placed tight limits on government borrowing from their central banks, fearing excessive borrowing could lead to inflation. These restrictions are a general manifestation of the independence of the central bank in defining and implementing monetary policy. The Maastricht Convention of 1993 strictly forbade financing the budget deficit in Member States by resorting to borrowing from the Central Bank. The European countries that signed the Convention have, in effect, begun to amend their laws to include provisions prohibiting such borrowing.

5. Free use of monetary instruments

The inability of the central bank to use monetary policy tools it deems appropriate, without the need for government approval, weakens the independence of the central bank. The ability of the central bank to use monetary policy tools varies widely among countries. In some, the bank has great freedom to use these instruments, while others require simply changing some of them - for example, changing the requirements of the legal reserve - for example, referring to the government.

6. Financial independence of the Central Bank.

The issue of the financial independence of the Central Bank is of particular importance in studying the relationship of this bank to the government and its independence. The requirement of obtaining the prior approval of the government on the central bank's budget may in itself be an indirect means used by the government to influence the decisions of the central bank. Ability to obtain the necessary financial resources in the event of failure to follow its directions.

7. The Government's authority to appoint and remove the Central Bank's administration

In most countries of the world, the task of appointing the governor and senior officials of the Central Bank is assigned to the executive branch (the government), and this does not contradict the independence of the bank. This means that independence does not conflict with the appointment by the governments of the Governor of the Central Bank and members of the higher bodies of the Bank.

However, in countries where central banks have a high degree of independence, government authorities are subject to restrictions and limitations in the appointment and dismissal of central bank governors, most notably:

A) The necessity of a percentage of the appointments not taken by the government, in order to limit the influence of the government in this area and prevent it from monopolizing all appointments.

B) To determine the length of stay in office so that it is relatively long compared to the electoral cycle, in order to reduce the impact of the government on the Board of Directors of the Central Bank.

(C) The approval of the Parliament (the legislature of the country) is required when the Government appoints senior officials of the Central Bank.   LINK
Don961:  Trends of reform and the nature of economic system alignment

Monday 24 December 2018

Ali Kanani

Current trends of the government of Abdul Mahdi towards economic reform require deep reforms of the economic system in the Iraqi state, which is still in the process of transition to a market economy, and the nature of those reforms of the economy, which was founded over the decades to suit the requirements of the socialist economy directed may be restructured to He becomes able to move to the capitalist camp.

The Iraqi economy is currently undergoing gradual transformation into a capitalist system and a market economy based on competition and the principle of profit and loss after it was dominated by the concepts of the socialist system and the central administration of the state. This transformation brings the Iraqi economy back to the same style that was associated with its first development in the early 20th century, when the structure of the economic system was then capitalism directly linked to the British economy, Colonial then.

In the reign of the monarchy, the economic system was capitalist, because it was simply a capitalist economy in Britain and other European countries. After the revolution of 1958, the political system carried the slogan of combating imperialist subordination, The system was, as a result, close to the direction of communist regimes, which in their slogans called for the equitable distribution of wealth and the removal of class and social differences. As an inevitable result of these slogans and their application, the political system adopted the concepts of socialism, The Iraqi economy towards the public sector and state support for it.

The socialist system succeeded in the sixties and seventies of the last century to achieve significant developmental breakthroughs at the level of various sectors, thanks to the oil revenues, which accounted for more than half of the gross domestic income, and the balance of investment in the country and the implementation of ambitious development plans. These oil revenues occupied a distinct position in the Iraqi economy and constituted high proportions of its exports to make it a distinctly rural economy controlled by and affect the growth of the oil market and Prices.

However, the socialist system did not succeed in achieving the level of previous successes during the eighties and nineties of the last century because of the high costs of devastating wars, which deepened the imbalances in the structure of the country's rent economy, and also increased rentier nature due to the absence of new investments, and also weakened its productive activities Agricultural and industrial. In such circumstances, the political system was unable to provide real solutions to its growing crisis due to the lack of support from the private sector, weakened by ideological tendencies. Since the 1950s, successive socialist regimes in the country have sought to curtail and reconstruct private activity to ensure that it accomplishes specific functions and does not allow it to play an economic role.

After 2003, the direction of the political system seemed clear to change its economic policies due to the need for development, and the desire of investors from its American and European allies to enter the Iraqi market again. And helped to push towards a new economic system exacerbate the manifestations of financial and administrative corruption and the deterioration of all productive and service sectors and the cessation of agriculture and industry almost entirely, Oil revenues.

This has been accompanied by increased demand for employment in the public sector institutions and the military and internal security forces, which is a burden on the state budgets and a significant increase in the size of operational budgets on investment models, and here emerged the urgent need to shift to market economy, especially after the collapse of oil prices in the markets And the inability of the State to continue to meet its obligations.   link

Samson:  The Central Bank of Iraq the first economic institution in Iraq for 2018

26th December, 2018 by Samir Nusairi

Although I respect the other opinion issued by politicians or specialists in the economy and money, some of them live with us the concerns and challenges experienced by Iraq and its people and some of them living outside Iraq, but I have differed with the opinion that tries to diminish and diminish the character of the achievements of Iraq in the face of economic and financial crisis during the past four years The most difficult stage experienced by Iraq in previous years

On the occasion of the end of 2018 and the reception of a new year decided to review and analyze and establish the neutrality and transparency of the economic situation in Iraq through his career for the past four years and in particular has been achieved by the ministries and economic institutions in Iraq from the point of view of a specialist and expert and researcher in economic and banking matters reached the facts and indications and signals And achievements confirm that the Central Bank of Iraq proved to be the first economic institution in Iraq for 2018 through its important achievements in support of the national economy and achieve economic steadfastness and seek to achieve economic stability in accordance with the strategy in 2020 and Lotto Ih is based upon the facts in order to say that the central bank was first in the 2018 is the following:

After mid-2014, Iraq suffered two security and economic shocks due to the war on terrorism on behalf of the world's countries and the fall of oil prices, Iraq's main supplier, by more than 70%

Therefore, the men of Iraq must confront these two shocks, since such confrontations have their customs and laws. In the military custom, the armed military forces can not achieve victory over the enemy without a civil and economic effort. The private sector is the economic effort that contributes to decisive military victory. This is what the Iraqi National Bank's distinguished team has already achieved

It asks the Arab and international economic organizations and observers of the economic movement of countries and their experiences in overcoming the crises and achieving economic reform to assess the stage of the previous four years in which our country faced an economic and financial crisis suffocating the well-known causes in which victory is achieved on terrorism accompanied by another victory is the steadfastness and economic victory which was In which the Central Bank of Iraq and its governor plays a key role in achieving it. The most important of these is the support of the state treasury, the stability of the exchange rate, the recovery of the Iraqi dinar, the reduction of inflation, the maintenance of its share of less than 2%, the preservation of a 160% cash reserve as a cumulative accumulator according to the latest IMF standard, Excellent record rate

In addition to its adoption standards and controls consistent with the requirements of international standards in compliance and combating money laundering and financing of terrorism and the basic objectives and subsidiary strategy set up to 2020 and the activation and consolidation of new visions of monetary policy applications and the important thing that is achieved is the exchange rate stability in 2018 and reduce the gap between the official price of the US dollar And the parallel price is a basic goal of the monetary policy and the implementation of policies to restore confidence in the banking transactions of the Iraqi banks with Arab and foreign banks and the quest to build a solid banking sector and the continuation of extraordinary efforts to feel Banking reputation of international financial institutions and organizations and correspondent banks

And building strong relations with Arab and foreign central banks and international financial organizations. Also, procedural, regulatory, structural and internal development policies were designed to achieve financial stability and develop the banking business technically, structurally and organizationally and raise the percentage of financial coverage to the target ratio. And the mechanisms of banking which formed a solid base on the domestic and external scale

At the same time, I congratulate and congratulate the sons of my Iraqi people and their brave military and security forces on the victory over terrorism and its eradication from the land of Iraq and your cooperation with the Central Bank of Iraq for its contribution to achieving economic steadfastness and decisive victory over terrorism.

With sincere wishes for a new Happy New Year and to take the steady steps of radical economic reform and comprehensive and that the new government will be able to implement its governmental platform in the axis of strengthening the national economy and the development of the governmental and private banking sector    LINK
