Dan: Frank... thanks for desert  (see link below)

Iraq Lifted 3 zero's electronically Dec. 2018 That's GOOD

(IMO) I believe we will not see anything until Davos is done near end of January 2019.

Feb. 10,2019 is Iraq's investment conference.

I wonder if Iraq will  go public, or be secretive prior to these meetings?

Will Iraq be gamy with investors/countries or will they finally get down to work!

Seriously bickering and haggling and hammer out the deals Iraq and the world so desperately need.

Then there is the 30-60-90 day contracts. The 30 day C's that begin Jan.13,19
will be maturing just after the conference begins.

The 90 day contract is at $1.38. Nice.

This shows controlled increase in value over a 3 month period!
Investors will drive up IQD value, that's very good for us!

The 90 day C will go to almost the end of first quarter, depends on date contract began.

I question do these contractual agreements need to mature before Iraq
will then be able to go International. I believe they will work at country
level first, and we will be last.

Doing a slow roll out in a controlled manner to protect themselves financially.

This will allow the CBI to absorb the terrific changes they will experience.

My common sense ponderings.

This is not meant to be discouraging. I am trying to have realistic expectations!

 If I am wrong and it happens sooner... I will be the happiest wrong person you know!!!

I believe we will be getting close.... towards the end of the 1st quarter....... All (IMO)


SunnySandy:  HI Dan,Great explanation! That is exactly how I heard Frank. He has also expressed it in terms of a Managed Float.

I heard Frank clearly express.... we would be able to SOON deposit our Dinars in certained Twinned Bank AND we can choose when we wish to take the currency exchange in USD.

Iraq wants our 000's off the streets. It is our choice when we wish to give them or be paid on them). Meaning.... if I want to exchange one 25,000 IQD note for short term cash.... I can in a Twinned Bank. Then, in a few months.... when the IQD naturally raises it's value.... I can exchange the rest of my IQD.

Again, Great explanation (IMO) of Franks M CC with practical expectations.

Popeye7:  Thanks Dan for your opinion... We never know... But I do have several questions... One is what does Davos have to do with the increase in value of Iraq's currency?... There have been G-20, IMF, and G-7 meetings during the past year as well... I do not believe these meetings will have any bearing on when this will occur as some (including myself) have speculated in the past... For the past has already proven this as many have hoped these meeting would prove to be a launching point... But they have proven not to be in the end...

They have been testing the IQD, and a 1 to 1 value within Iraq as Frank, and WS indicated for quite some time now... The IQD is undervalued already big time... They have enough resources to increase the value very substantially as the CBI, and government leaders have indicated in the past... IMHO, they have to get this show on the road as this has been quite the ordeal to begin with...

The people of Iraq are tired of waiting for their currency value as they are a nation that imports most of their goods as we all know... I do not believe all of this preparation for this moment has been for a roll out type situation... The people are well educated now about what is about to transpire.. I am quite sure that they will catch on real fast, or be tutored by their peers when this increase takes place...

But what do I know in the end... I know that you are trying not to sound discouraging, but when I read what you wrote it will be to a great many... Lets see what happens this weekend shall we?...  God bless you, and take care..


TSM:  I have always been on the side of the UST holding our dinar for years (or possibly destroying them) in return Iraq for oil down the road. There is no way Iraq can redeem our currency in a short period of time (a yr. or so )with the CBI only having 50 or so billion USD on hand. Over the years we have been told that trillions of dinars have been sold to us investors, so even at a 1-1 rate it is way beyond Iraq's ability for this to happen as explained above... JMO

Local exchange companies are preparing for a major demonstration on Jan. 24

Hundreds of exchange-rate owners and employees are planning a major demonstration on January 24 to demand a change in their central bank policies, which they view as unfair and weaken their role and influence in the local economy.

And explained the reasons for their exit at the demonstration at the main gate of the Central Bank of Iraq with several points.
- Adopting a systematic policy of hostility against the private sector represented by exchange companies rather than sponsoring and supporting them, as is the case in other world countries

- Dealing with disrespect and retaliation instead of practicing correction and reform. This has been reflected in the behavior of the staff of the committees in dealing with the owners of exchange companies by police methods and inspecting mobile phones, underwear, bags, etc.

- The imposition of wages and illegal fees on companies that did not exist in the past punish the company in case of non-payment.

- Replace the experienced, competent and former cadres with staff who do not have experience, and are only able to execute orders from their position in these positions.

- The imposition of harsh penalties such as the cancellation of companies, the withdrawal of leave, or the suspension of a long period, or the imposition of fines without right, giving a weak chance of defense so that the opponent is the judge.

- Failure to implement promises and procrastination in the issuance of any decision to improve difficult situations, or to address them

The largest deletion of zeros in  history.

the central Bank of Iran proposed to delete four zeros from its besieged currency (rial) According to Reuters, as it lost more than 60% of its value during 2018.

Governments usually delete zeros when their currency loses purchasing power rather than issuing large categories of currency.

The elimination of zeros is not new in Iran, it was preceded by Venezuela when it omitted five zeros, and Iraq which has already deleted zeros from Iraqi dinars...


  They just need to show the world Delta!

 Delta.... is the statement in RED... your words .. or part of the article..?  Ty

James49:  Delta, if they deleted any zeros we would see it on the cbi web site IMO and all the zeros are still there, 


RockCharlie229:  The Zeros we're deleted electronically. Per Mondays CC IMO

Popeye7:  More proof to back up WS, and Frank on Monday's CC... Awesome sauce...  IMO, this weekend would be a great time to see this finally be made public.. We shall see folks...

Note: KTFA members are not allowed to use the bright color red on the forum....Only Delta and Frank can use bright red and it means its VERY IMPORTANT!

Al-Gheshmi: Iraq needs to be leveraged to meet its accumulated debts

MP Khalid al-Geshmi said on Wednesday that Iraq has to borrow from other countries in order to meet the debt accumulated previously, indicating that corruption is the biggest obstacle to the country's march. 

"Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi was able to convince a lot at the level of theorizing reform," he said in a televised statement.

"There are initiatives by the government and we can not say that they did not do anything, since there is no problem that 100 days Abdul Mahdi stretched to 120 or slightly more."

He explained that "the budget is miserable and will enter the country in a dark tunnel, and Iraq to owe to meet the debt accumulated on it," noting that "corruption is the biggest obstacle to the march of the country, despite the presence of many deputies have a sincere intention to implement the reform."   link

JJonesmx:  US Trying to get More out of Relationship with Iraq

11th January 2019

 America is trying to get more out of its relationship with Iraq

US President Donald Trump thinks America is being ripped off. “We have spent $7trn—trillion with a T—$7trn in the Middle East,” he told a crowd last year, exaggerating slightly. “You know what we have for it? Nothing. Nothing.”

To right this perceived wrong, Mr Trump has long favoured seizing Iraq’s oil. But after he hinted at the idea with the Iraqi prime minister (who demurred), his aides admonished him. “We can’t do this and you shouldn’t talk about it,” said H.R. McMaster, the national security adviser at the time, according to reports. Still, Mr Trump may be getting what he wants from Iraq in other ways.
When America reimposed sanctions on Iran last year it gave some countries extra time to stop buying Iranian oil before they would lose access to the American market. Most were given 90-day exemptions. In November Iraq, which shares a long border with Iran, was given half that time to cut off electricity and gas imports.

As it negotiated for extensions, American companies made a push for Iraqi contracts. In December, Rick Perry, the energy secretary, led America’s largest trade delegation to Iraq in over a decade. “It was a quid pro quo,” says an oilman. “You give us priority and we’ll give you an exemption.”

Read the full article here (subscription needed).
MilitiaMan:  So if we look back to our notes. We all can see that we have been told that in November (above) that Iraq was given a 90 day extension in regard to Trumps sanctions on Iran.

Notice that Rick Perry was then under way with a delegation to Iraq with over 50 top USA companies in a push for contracts. I'll bet they were inked before that, as the big boyz go prepared..

Now think about this. On Mondays CC we were told that contracts were paid.. See below and above on "quid pro quo" . The were contracts paid on Dec 30/31 real close per our friends firm (WalkingStick).

Well they must have had a good reason to be in Iraq in November! And to get paid in DEC?

Well even if the companies were not part of the paid contractors in IQD on the 30th is just goes to show, that paying a contract is remuneration.. Yep, payment for services.. So that puts them back in November.

Now think about the historic information we have heard about the 10 days in regard to showing per KW era RV..

Well Dec 30, aside from the holiday on the 1st of Jan gets us to a time frame of 01/11/2019. Interesting in that is a Friday.. A mosque day. Banks are closed. Makes one think about timing..

Lets not forget IMO (International Maritime Organization), has nothing but contracts and are in the news today, betting new numbers to do business.. TRADE!!! So lets see what comes next.. imo! ~ MM

Quote Frank26:  "On the 30th, of December, lifted the 3 zeros electronically. What I’m about to share with you is public knowledge. Why doesn’t the Internet know? You.. have the ability and privilege to receive our study from Walkingstick. Because Walkingstick is working with the Government of Iraq. On the 30th of Dec. 2018, WS firm received 240 contracts from the GOI. They started internally. 24 of them, have already been PAID. They were paid in IQD. The term of acceptance: 30 day contracts. Of the 240, 24 already paid in IQD. That’s exactly what Iraq has to do. I want you to know that these 240 contracts and the 24, they were paid at a rate of 1:1."~ Frank26

"Those contracts will start on January 13, 2019. Details on other firms is unknown to us. Believe they are similar and paid in IQD at 1:1. ~ Frank26

quid pro quo /ˌkwid ˌprō ˈkwō/  noun

rarerequital "a congressman's support for the president on a particular issue may not represent a straightforward quid pro quo"


Popeye7:  This weekend could prove to be very interesting IMHO... Contracts starting on the 13th of Jan, Secretary of State Pompeo visiting the Middle East this week, and all of the great news we heard from Frank on Monday's CC...

James49:  In what currency was the contracts paid

Rommy:  Hi J49 - Here maybe MCC will help you ---Monday Conference Call

MilitiaMan:  Thanks Samson!!!

This is a long article be sure, but, clearly Jordan wants a hand in the cookie jar.. Contracts!! Many are in progress and underway..They are waiting on promises from 2018.. Well, it sure seems they took time to tell us the pros and cons.. They mean business.. A good thing.. (IMO) lol imo ~ MM


2Cents:   And who did Pompeo meet with First????  Then Massoud, followed by Nechervan, followed by Mahdi!!!!    Uh Oh.......I forgot Saleh after Nechervan

(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.)

Earth Alliance representatives met with Trump prior to his oval office speech yesterday.

It was agreed that the transition must now begin without any further negotiations or delay.

The government shutdown will continue indefinitely until the transition is complete or a deal has been reached.

The government shutdown is the finale, the last stretch to the transition.

China is expected to announce a trade deal with the US thus ending the trade war between the two nations.

The gold-backed Renminbi (Chinese Yuan) will replace the USD as the world reserve currency.

Iraq will be pressured by the US to internationally recognize their (already) gold-backed currency.

GESARA will be announced shortly after.

The World Bank/IMF will then be forced by the Earth Alliance to publicly announce a financial reset.

The financial reset will result in the official activation of the new quantum financial system (QFS).

The QFS will provide a fair monetary system for all.

Indictments and military tribunals will also begin as per GESARA (timely with the government shutdown).

GESARA contains many other reforms/enactments which can be read here:

The private currency redemption event (RV) is expected to begin before these events.



Good Wednesday evening to everyone. Keep the faith everyone. Just because the faucet of real information has been closed a bit does not mean the well is dry. The test is to use your Pure Filter to sift out the same old drivel and accept that your BS filter is 100% AOK


Hi Everyone,

I bring you much news today.

For all you who pop in quickly and want a date and a rate – no reinstatement as of yet and the dinar is not yet international. The CBI is still planning for the month of January and so we watch and wait, however I do not see the signs I would want to see to by now to prove this is the case. There is still more than 3 weeks remaining in January.

Also when the dinar does finally reinstate it will most likely be in the range of $3-$4 on exchange with the US dollar. This is NOT going to be slow rise from the program rate 1190 since it will no longer be solely pegged to the US dollar.

BAGHDAD (Reuters) -

Hundreds of exchange-rate owners and employees are set to launch a major demonstration on Thursday (January 24) to demand a change in the central bank's policies that they see as unfair and weaken their role in the local economy.

The owners of these companies attributed the reasons for their exit at the main gate of the Central Bank of Iraq to several things, including:

- Adopting a systematic policy of hostility against the private sector represented by exchange companies rather than sponsoring and supporting it, as is the case in other countries of the world.

- Dealing with disrespect and retaliation instead of practicing correction and reform. This has been reflected in the behavior of the staff of the committees in dealing with the owners of exchange companies by police methods and inspecting mobile phones, underwear, bags, etc.

- The imposition of severe penalties such as the cancellation of companies, the withdrawal of leave or suspension for a long time, or the imposition of fines without a right, or to give a weak chance of defense so that the opponent is the referee.

- Reduce the share allocated to exchange companies gradually from $ 300 thousand to $ 70 thousand.

Journal News: The US ambassador to Iraq, Douglas Soliman, has asked Speaker of the House of Representatives Mohamed Halboussi not to pass the law to remove foreign troops from Iraq, according to informed political sources, noting that “Halabousi gave verbal approval to the ambassador.”

“THE US IS PLANNING TO KEEP ITS TROOPS IN IRAQ FOR AS LONG AS POSSIBLE,” the sources told The Journal News. “The visit of US President Donald Trump was for that reason, and he announced that he was not considering taking US troops out of Iraq or using it as a key base.”

“The American ambassador told Halaboussi that the US embassy is closely monitoring the political process in Iraq and has FOLLOWED UP THE REACTIONS AFTER TRUMP’S VISIT TO THE AIN AL-ASSAD BASE and his attempt to meet Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi,” she said.

The draft law provides for the removal of all foreign forces from Iraq, including the Kurdistan region of Iraq, the support of Iraqi forces, the formation of the Ministry of the Interior and popular mobilization factions, strengthening the capabilities of the air force and building air defense systems capable of securing the country and signing defense agreements with neighboring countries and friendly countries. , Without being mentioned.

It is worth mentioning that AMERICA INTRODUCED ITS MILITARY FORCES INTO IRAQ IN TWO STAGES. THE FIRST DURING THE INVASION OF THIS COUNTRY IN 2003, AND WASHINGTON WAS FORCED TO WITHDRAW ITS TROOPS AT THE END OF 2011, AND IN LATE 2008 AN AGREEMENT CALLED THE “STRATEGIC FRAMEWORK AGREEMENT” and included paragraphs allowing it to keep part of Forces in Iraq to train the military and security forces of the country.

After the terrorist organization Da’ash entered and occupied large areas of Iraq IN JUNE 2014, AMERICA TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THE OPPORTUNITY TO RE-ESTABLISH ITS MILITARY FORCES under the pretext of supporting it in the face of a “push” within the framework of the so-called “International Alliance” led by Washington.

(Mnt Goat – Did you read this sentence? This said to “activation of economic cooperation and investment between the two countries”. They are about to get this ball rolling from this 2018-2022 reconstruction plan. This plan, as we know, hinges on reinstating their currency. Why? They will need “free flow” of capital in and out of Iraq and they can not do this having to go to currency auctions and keep converting dinar to dollars. Get it? They will need automated, international systems to transfer money and these systems use the global currency exchanges to convert the currency to the proper exchange rates. I also want to point out that the Customs and Tariffs collections is in the same situation. How can countries pay these high tariffs that are listed on international “indexed rate tables” with the Iraqi dinar being so low? They also need the exchange rates from the global currency exchanges to convert from the country of origin to the Iraq dinar. This is all done manually using calculators and it is not working out.)

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.


“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”

Auf Wiedersehen 

Much love to ya all,
