  1. The dark evil side of this world is focusing on the US because we are the most powerful. No otherr country in the world has as many weapons per household as we do. This nation has the most heavily armed private citizenry of any nations on earth, so where is any major change of control going to start, right here. But it has been started for years. If you are not familiar with the term illuminati or New World Order, it is high time you did because this is going to effect every man, woman, child not only here but all over the world when and if they get control. Two things aare slowing them down right now, guns and people. There is still enough people who care about whats coming and who trying to take control to slow it down some. They know this, why you think this big gun issue has all of a sudden gotten out of hand. The shootings is being used as a reason to massively push against the people. Now anyone with any thinking can realize that if the only thing that the citizens has to fight back with is given up, then we are doomed. All you will have then is rocks to throw. Silently but surely they are working hard every day, your presients now and past, our congressional dummys, our behind the scenes corporations, and just people who want to see this country fall because they have some kind of vendictive attitude against something. Sounds like science fiction don't it....its here, its now, you can see it being played out before your very eyes. Its about control. As the old saying goes, "He who has control has it all". People if you do not know anything about the New World Order or the term illuminati i urge you to look it up on the net and educate yourselves because its gonna effect you in time. Remember the prison camps, the gas chambers that Hitler used well they are still in the pages of the book called CONTROL.

  2. Hello again fellow dinarians...I wanted to post an update on the info received from my friend at the bank. But first, I cannot beleive how many people have been on this thread! For those of you that left well wishes for my grandpa and the situation there...My sincere Thanks! The bank involved here has began, and actually has been for about 6 weeks, putting together an "organized plan" as far as the dinar is concerned. To the public, their position has not changed...and will not until the revaluation is made public (basically goes international) as far as trading is concerned. They WILL be involved n the currency exchange, and are dealing with some new stipulations that may go into effect...and I truly hope they dont! One of these possible "rules" is a limit on the amount an individual will be able to exchange during a certain period of time. So, if they do indeed place that stipulation on the exchange, those who hold several million coulld be forced to wait a period before they are able to exchange all that they hold. He said that it was not made clear if this was a bank policy, or something that our wonderful government has came up with...but at this time...it is not in force. The million dollar question....When? They stated that Feb would see the begining of an influx of people exchanging dinar. No date was given, but due to some of the changes that the bank is to implement on Feb 1, He believes early in the month. There will not be any big signs out front of the banks saying "COME IN AND EXCHANGE YOUR IRAQI DINAR HERE", all transactions will be handled just as any other foreign currency transaction would. During their meeting, exchange rate questions were addressed. The woman giving the information would only speak to the fact that it would change on an hourly basis, and any transactions would be exchanged at that current rate which would be decided by Iraqs Central Bank.Tis man has been in banking for 24 years! His statement to me about this situation was when it comes to money...everyone is out for number one! This situation is something like he has ever seen, and he told me...something is up. For the past several years the bank had a firm stance that the dinar was not going to be a part of the banks services! And now....they are changing everything to the exact opposite! He told me that only certain levels of bankers are privy to certain info, and even though this woman who was there speaking at this Saturday morning meeting is a regional director...she is in the dark about all of the details. She was simply passing on information to the branch level because someone higher up deemed it was neccesary to do so. He believes that certain people at the branch level will get more info in the coming days. Through this whole conversation we had, one thing that was never mentioned was...are they going to? It was as if there is absolutley no question what so ever that this revaluation will happen! When I asked..what if they dont, he smiled and said thats not the question....the question is the when and how much!! Anyway, that is the info and the sum of our conversation this morning. By the way...this bank is a Major US/International bank. Take the info for what its worth...personally...im about to pop waiting for the next few days to come around..and just maybe get another email from him. Since he specializes in the area of wealth managment, I would think he is a good source. He has never given me a reason not to trust him, and knowing him the way i do...and just listening to the way he was talking about it, and acting.....He was not blowing smoke!!! He is onto something Fantastic!! Thats all for now..thanks to those who were paitent while waiting on me to get back. I may pass on any further info I get from him...it will depend on what happens over the next several days. Oh...one statement that was made that I omited...when speaking about the possible exchange rate, he was assured that in no way, shape, or form would it come out any lower than the US dollar. He related the rate to be inline with other countries that were simular to Iraq as far as their resources. Also, De La Rue machines are going to be few and far between in reguards to this bank. There will not be one in any branch within 100 miles from me...so no new big shiny machines! Which means I have to travel...not letting anything leave my hands. God Bless! Im ready!

  3. Fib, while it is entirely possible that come March 1st the Dinar has not changed in status, it does not mean that Hoosier's banker did not have this conversation with him. I believe that all the neg's you've received are not because your comments are inherently wrong, but because you felt the need to throw cold water on something that Dinar holders sorely need - hope! A chance to feel optimistic by virtue of someone other than a typical rumor snake. I have not been "counting my chickens" on this investment for a long time now and yet I must say that I was drawn into this thread by its sincere nature and un-pumped quality. Whether it happens or not, It actually gave me a moment to daydream the "what-if" again for the first time in a couple years, and that felt good. I don't fault you for your cynicism since the track record is on your side, but might I suggest that sometimes its ok to take a little tonic and feel good for a bit. Even let everyone else do the same. Its easy to be "right" in this deal by saying "Status Quo come March", but so what. You can tell by the magnitude of this post that everyone needed a little "pick-me-up" and this delivered. Regardless of how long this ride takes, take advantage of small moments to remind yourself what you would do if it goes the way we all want. Heaven knows there's plenty of chances to question the outcome. I'll reduce you by one neg because what you said is a legitimate opinion on a rumor (though it won't help much) and your entitled to it, but maybe next time, just let it go. Sometimes its just nice to think it won't be raining during the parade...

  4. Thank You for the reply..I understand when it comes to these types of posts, most automatically deem them as something made up, or someone wanting attention! I have looked at "bank stories" in that same manor myself. But when it came down to my own posting of the info that I have been given...it kinda changes ones perspective! I knew the risks involved...but I have been here for a couple years and in that time, Ive not really had anything to contribute...so I was prepared for some to bash on me...but I'll be honest...I was never prepared for the response that this thread received!! Im just happy that it has given some that "spark of hope" back that many had when they first came invested. I do believe this info to be legtimate, and I am personally counting on it to be verified 100 percent in very short order!! God Bless!

  5. A little bit about me, I am 58, at the age of 12 I started playing music, I toured with national acts and played with national artists. I remember after performing on the Grand Ole Opry, this is every musicians dream, I had the most empty feeling inside, yes I thought, I had made it to the top. I remembered a song , I had written, and one of the lines in it was...Unshavened face and blood shot eyes, I looked in the mirror, and thought what a disguise. Thats when my life started changing, I was sick and tired of being sick and tired, if you know what I mean. I decided to change my life and career, right at that moment. You see, I was a graduate, of Rhema Bible Training Center, I knew I had some type of calling to help people, not necessarily a pastor, but a helper. As time went by, I had started donating my time, at Senior Citizen Centers, took food and clothes to the homeless, that lived under the bridge, etc. My son Jeremy, had been called to the ministry, he felt led to start a church in Midland, Texas.They grew out of their present facility, and needed another. He had called me and shared his vision, and told me, Dad I just need somebody to be in agreement with me , about this new facility, I dont know what to do. I told him let me think on it.. I started thinking, I contacted my son, a few days later, and said How is it going? He said Dad.....I know God has something for this congregation...and I said lets buy the facility, he said (((WHAT)))..after tears and joy, I said I will be flying out to view the facility, this facility is 88,000 square feet, it also has a sports complex, with all the bells and whistles, Hand Ball courts, BB courts, weight rooms lockers, walking track, I mean all. and right in the front is a visitation area, we stopped in there to talk with the real estate agents,. I told Jeremy to submit an offer, they accepted it exactly how I had stated it, In my heart, I felt God had impressed upon me to have a 2 year call, Well, I added a year, and made it a 3 year call, we will be signing the final paperwork, on May 20,2011 PTL..... Remember that date,,,on the plane ride home, I know the Lord, spoke to me, this,, the church will be paid for in two years, in full. Folks I dont share this much with anyone, but I felt compelled to share it with you. Since purchasing the church, the attendance has rose 200, has about 15 on staff, has a day care that is licensed for 126 children and now has about 80, presently enrolled, with this blessing we are about to receive, we will make a change..We bought a 4 million dollar facility, for 1.2 million, with nothing down......will tell you the rest later. Thanks Hoosier, I do agree with what you say, I feel we are close!!

  7. hey Osmosis...thanks your posting your opinion. Im as hopeful as every other person on here that we are finally off this ride within a week! I wanted to clear something up for you...after reading your comment concerning when my grandfather was admitted into the hospital. I dont want to leave any question that Im able to answer...unswered! When he went t0 the hospital on Monday morning...it was due to not taking his meds....which leads to fits of rage, emotional distress, aggressive behavior towards others. He was taken in and given meds..then placed in a monitoring room until approx five thirty in the evening. He was released by the dr. to go home with his wife, and as usual..his home health nurse would be there this morning. Well, you see....he decided that he wanted to take a walk at approx ten pm and the sheriff had to be called...and Thankfully he was found approx one mile from home two hours after he went missing. He was instantly readmitted into the behavioral health unit. Thats where he is now. It seems you were concerned with discrediting my post..so I hope this helps! And by the way, my grandpa is fine! Thanks, and God Bless! As far as a branch manager having info...I have no idea. But dont you think that if indeed this is getting ready to go in the next few days, that the local levels would need that iinfo? I believe they would! Cant speak for other branchs...only know one person in the entire company! Thanks!

  8. I have some intel from a contractor in Iraq that Exxon Mobil is having secret talks today to shift power and push a revaluation with the president of the World Trade Organization. If this was to happen there would be a fast three step move. The Dinar would go up in price very sharply and then there would be a Free Float, a re-denomination with an RV. This would balance the budget, remove deficit and remove all big notes from circulation all at once. Lastly it would increase the investments in Iraq 100 fold in a matter of days and Oil companies would make Billions of dollars in seconds. I also found this article on Exxon Mobile . article exxon mobile (Reuters) - Behind the closed doors of their offices in the United States, top executives and lawyers for Exxon Mobil are poring over two sets of contracts, weighing a decision that could shift the balance of power in Iraq. This is very exciting news. Got my RV card ready.

  9. **** OCRUSH RUMOR UPDATE **** OCRUSH JAN 30th Hello Diane, Something urgent is happening in iraq. My cousin spoke to the new deputy of the oil ministry. (I didn't know the old was replaced) There are changes that were made within the contracts that reflect a favor to its iraqi employees. There will be a notice on this changes at the appropriate time (within days) he told him. My cousin senses the revaluation will happen first before the budget is released. It seems companies are taking steps for the change. Also BIG military movements within Iraq. Don’t have details, my brother will try to call me later I feel we are close as Steve was saying! Anything can happen at any time and like Steve said expect surprises without any notice. FROM STEVE1 SteveI: Greetings again members. As we near the end of January 2013, many things were in the works to have made this happen. Many things did, but not enough of them to release the new currency and the new rate. I know many read other forums and recaps and need to clarify a few rumors that are floating out there. I will not mention any names as this is not to discredit the so called "Guru", but rather put the rumor to bed. This one tops them all: "[When Parliament passes the budget for 2013, do you think that there may be a way to tell from the budget if they are planning to r/v soon , such as the size of the budget or places where they have allocated more funds?] No, not a chance. The budget will absolutely not tell us anything about the RV - that will be a completely separate budget based on a completely different rate. " <-- So now there is two budgets? What planet are you on pal? I say, not a chance in hell! All of this cashing out "latest update at 6:00 am this mornin...should show publicly sometime today or tonight at the latest" is just plain nonsense. Please do not buy into this one as there is not one bit of truth to this. I do not what your hopes crushed again. Another one is "based on what “we” know; the budget may come out next Tuesday without a rate showing whatsoever. they will likely mask us all the way out to Feb. 23rd. Why? The reason being is due to the need of laws and Ch. 7 not being released" This one is not even close, but they did get one thing right, they will be voting on the budget. Again, please do not buy into this one either. So here are a few facts that is known; The Iraqi Budget of 2013 will be voted on Tuesday, February 5, 2013. The United Stated Treasury is still in Iraq working with the Ministry of Finance. The Iraqi Budget of 2012 and official accounts were closed December 31, 2012, so in order to draw funds from the 2013 budget it needs to be approved. Iraq needs money now, not months from now. Banking laws are in place and ready to go. The list goes on but the fact that it is not done is very clear, no budget means no money, period! Until this happens we can just all sit back and let the powers to be complete their mission. I refuse to go into the rate again and for a date, January 2013 was a pretty darn good time based on the activities of the Iraqi Government and the commitments they set for themselves. Why the budget has not been passed is fairly simple, a few blocs just could not agree. Now that they finally all agree, and very positive things will move forward quickly. The basic point of this post is to share with you the positive news and not dwell on the negative. As you can see "guru's" are flying out of the woodwork and posting the most ridicules things ever to stake their claim to fame, but in reality, they will be eating their very own words when this is over. Let's get one thing clear, Ray and I are not the so called "Guru's" but rather individuals that try very hard and spend many hours verifying what is being told to us from our contacts, as the others create information to keep their followers happy at all costs. We do not go around predicting this every weekend, but rather provide information for you to understand this very complex process of our investments and let you make your own decisions and assumptions. This investment has taken a major toll on many good people that are using this as a life saver rather than a life changer which makes the stress even worse. I hope for the sake of the Iraqi citizens who deserve this more than any one of us combined, gets to see it happen in the very near future. It is their turn to be proud of this emerging economic giant. I have no intention of posting any further updates until later mid next week. We now know the process and the chain of events that will make this happen, so sit back and let it happen. I am extremely excited and confident in what we are sharing and what is about to happen. Take this post as rumor or great information, I really do not care one way or the other. This currency is going to revalue with or without you and you will not have to wait for months or many weeks for it to do so. You may take this post and do whatever you want with it and post it wherever you want as it makes no difference to me. If you have zero information or contacts and you cannot prove or disprove anything, why you go to the extreme efforts to bash us is beyond me, except to get even because you were banned from this site and it is your pathetic way of getting even and holding a grudge. When this is all over and you have your money, you will probably look back and wish you would have not wasted your time on such childish behavior and wished you would have spent more time contributing and being a productive member to the site you belong to. You all have a safe Super Bowl Weekend. Enjoy family and friends and get your mind off of this investment for awhile. It will still be here when you return to it. It could very well be the last weekend as you know it. Things will change very quickly after the budget gets final approval. Please do not ask and further questions as we have shared and provided you all with some insight to what is really going on. So until then, keep your hopes high and your spirits even higher. We are all in this together and we will all finish this together. Next week I will be posting the results of several entities that will help you exchange your Iraqi Dinars to United States Dollars. So, have a great and safe week and even safer weekend. God Bless each and every one of you. Steve

  10. Fib and Pudge...two hit and run annoying LOPsters/dumpers that make the likes of Keep and Dinark seem like choirboys by comparison. I've never seen anyone who doesn't believe in this investment put so much effort into talking about it.Let me guess..when you get asked about this you say you are merely trying to help people not get conned like you have?Or perhaps you say you're here to be a voice of reason for those who drink the koolaid.Blah blah blah usual silly dumper excuses. Now as to your main argument that you keep repeating like the gospel again and again and again.First of all since when has the Iraqi govt and media told the truth.They are even more corrupt than their american counterparts and give us roughly 98% BS and 2 percent actual truth.And second of all...come back and argue that point the day the American govt has enough oil,gold,silver etc to back up all of that 16 trillion dollars of debt they have while still printing more fiat money everyday.Almost no govt on earth can currently back up their debts with actual commodities silly Fib.The global economic system is going down.Some of us just hope Iraq might throw us a bone long enough to convert our new found wealth into some usable asset before the big crash comes.

  11. I was also considering attending Rhema Bible Colliege after a motorcycle accident back in 2007. Things never seemed to work out though. I am a devout believer in the teachings and ministry of Kenneth E. Hagin. I will say....the transfer of wealth that the Word of God makes very clear will happen, has already began...and most do not even realize it. You were able to purchase a property worth 4 million for a little over a quarter of its worth! I have heard numerous testimonies simular to yours, and it never suprises me! Thingss that have never taken place before will begin to be seen! Most say that the dinar cannot revalue at the previous rate or higher because that percentage of increase is just simply too high...its never happened...therefore, they believe it never will! Some know the truth as to what this situation with Iraq truly is! Every detail of this is in the bible..if people would only open it up and study it! I know without any doubt whatsoever that this is a very large part of that transfer...I have said in the past...to many, it will be a blessing because they will use it to help spread the Gospel of Jesus across the globe, and help their brothers and sisters in need! But, unfortunatley those who choose to handle the funds in a way that is unbecoming of the Will of God...I believe will lose the money quicker than it came into their hands! Congratulations on the new property! Looking forward to hearing the rest! God Bless You and your family! Thank you laurafromflorida! I have a house right outside of Ocala...looking forward to moving back down and getting out of this nasty weather here in southern Indiana!!!

  15. This is a very long but good letter i found in the Quiet Proffesionals forum. i am passing it along. http://professionalsoldiers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=40772 29 Jan 2013 We are current or former Army Reserve, National Guard, and active duty US Army Special Forces soldiers (Green Berets). We have all taken an oath to “...support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same.…” The Constitution of the United States is without a doubt the single greatest document in the history of mankind, codifying the fundamental principle of governmental power and authority being derived from and granted through the consent of the governed. Our Constitution established a system of governance that preserves, protects, and holds sacrosanct the individual rights and primacy of the governed as well as providing for the explicit protection of the governed from governmental tyranny and/or oppression. We have witnessed the insidious and iniquitous effects of tyranny and oppression on people all over the world. We and our forebears have embodied and personified our organizational motto, De Oppresso Liber [To Free the Oppressed], for more than a half century as we have fought, shed blood, and died in the pursuit of freedom for the oppressed. Like you, we are also loving and caring fathers and grandfathers. Like you, we have been stunned, horrified, and angered by the tragedies of Columbine, Virginia Tech, Aurora, Fort Hood, and Sandy Hook; and like you, we are searching for solutions to the problem of gun-related crimes in our society. Many of us are educators in our second careers and have a special interest to find a solution to this problem. However, unlike much of the current vox populi reactions to this tragedy, we offer a different perspective. First, we need to set the record straight on a few things. The current debate is over so-called “assault weapons” and high capacity magazines. The terms "assault weapon" and "assault rifle" are often confused. According to Bruce H. Kobayashi and Joseph E. Olson, writing in the Stanford Law and Policy Review, “Prior to 1989, the term ‘assault weapon’ did not exist in the lexicon of firearms. It is a political term [underline added for emphasis], developed by anti-gun publicists to expand the category of assault rifles.” The M4A1 carbine is a U.S. military service rifle - it is an assault rifle. The AR-15 is not an assault rifle. The “AR” in its name does not stand for “Assault Rifle” - it is the designation from the first two letters of the manufacturer’s name – ArmaLite Corporation. The AR-15 is designed so that it cosmetically looks like the M4A1 carbine assault rifle, but it is impossible to configure the AR-15 to be a fully automatic assault rifle. It is a single shot semi-automatic rifle that can fire between 45 and 60 rounds per minute depending on the skill of the operator. The M4A1 can fire up to 950 rounds per minute. In 1986, the federal government banned the import or manufacture of new fully automatic firearms for sale to civilians. Therefore, the sale of assault rifles are already banned or heavily restricted! The second part of the current debate is over “high capacity magazines” capable of holding more than 10 rounds in the magazine. As experts in military weapons of all types, it is our considered opinion that reducing magazine capacity from 30 rounds to 10 rounds will only require an additional 6 -8 seconds to change two empty 10 round magazines with full magazines. Would an increase of 6 –8 seconds make any real difference to the outcome in a mass shooting incident? In our opinion it would not. Outlawing such “high capacity magazines” would, however, outlaw a class of firearms that are “in common use”. As such this would be in contravention to the opinion expressed by the U.S. Supreme Court recent decisions. Moreover, when the Federal Assault Weapons Ban became law in 1994, manufacturers began retooling to produce firearms and magazines that were compliant. One of those ban-compliant firearms was the Hi-Point 995, which was sold with ten-round magazines. In 1999, five years into the Federal Assault Weapons Ban, the Columbine High School massacre occurred. One of the perpetrators, Eric Harris, was armed with a Hi-Point 995. Undeterred by the ten-round capacity of his magazines, Harris simply brought more of them: thirteen magazines would be found in the massacre's aftermath. Harris fired 96 rounds before killing himself. Now that we have those facts straight, in our opinion, it is too easy to conclude that the problem is guns and that the solution to the problem is more and stricter gun control laws. For politicians, it is politically expedient to take that position and pass more gun control laws and then claim to constituents that they have done the right thing in the interest of protecting our children. Who can argue with that? Of course we all want to find a solution. But, is the problem really guns? Would increasing gun regulation solve the problem? Did we outlaw cars to combat drunk driving? What can we learn from experiences with this issue elsewhere? We cite the experience in Great Britain. Despite the absence of a “gun culture”, Great Britain, with one-fifth the population of the U.S., has experienced mass shootings that are eerily similar to those we have experienced in recent years. In 1987 a lone gunman killed 18 people in Hungerford. What followed was the Firearms Act of 1988 making registration mandatory and banning semi-automatic guns and pump-action shotguns. Despite this ban, on March 13, 1996 a disturbed 43-year old former scout leader, Thomas Hamilton, murdered 16 school children aged five and six and a teacher at a primary school in Dunblane, Scotland. Within a year and a half the Firearms Act was amended to ban all private ownership of hand guns. After both shootings there were amnesty periods resulting in the surrender of thousands of firearms and ammunition. Despite having the toughest gun control laws in the world, gun related crimes increased in 2003 by 35% over the previous year with firearms used in 9,974 recorded crimes in the preceding 12 months. Gun related homicides were up 32% over the same period. Overall, gun related crime had increased 65% since the Dunblane massacre and implementation of the toughest gun control laws in the developed world. In contrast, in 2009 (5 years after the Federal Assault Weapons Ban expired) total firearm related homicides in the U.S. declined by 9% from the 2005 high (Source: “FBI Uniform Crime Reporting Master File, Table 310, Murder Victims – Circumstances and Weapons Used or Cause of Death: 2000-2009”). Are there unintended consequences to stricter gun control laws and the politically expedient path that we have started down? In a recent op-ed piece in the San Francisco Chronicle, Brett Joshpe stated that “Gun advocates will be hard-pressed to explain why the average American citizen needs an assault weapon with a high-capacity magazine other than for recreational purposes.”We agree with Kevin D. Williamson (National Review Online, December 28, 2012): “The problem with this argument is that there is no legitimate exception to the Second Amendment right that excludes military-style weapons, because military-style weapons are precisely what the Second Amendment guarantees our right to keep and bear.” “The purpose of the Second Amendment is to secure our ability to oppose enemies foreign and domestic, a guarantee against disorder and tyranny. Consider the words of Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story”: ‘The importance of this article will scarcely be doubted by any persons, who have duly reflected upon the subject. The militia is the natural defense of a free country against sudden foreign invasions, domestic insurrections, and domestic usurpations of power by rulers. It is against sound policy for a free people to keep up large military establishments and standing armies in time of peace, both from the enormous expenses, with which they are attended, and the facile means, which they afford to ambitious and unprincipled rulers, to subvert the government, or trample upon the rights of the people. The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.’ The Second Amendment has been ruled to specifically extend to firearms “in common use” by the military by the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in U.S. v Miller (1939). In Printz v U.S. (1997) Justice Thomas wrote: “In Miller we determined that the Second Amendment did not guarantee a citizen’s right to possess a sawed-off shot gun because that weapon had not been shown to be “ordinary military equipment” that could “could contribute to the common defense”. A citizen’s right to keep and bear arms for personal defense unconnected with service in a militia has been reaffirmed in the U.S. Supreme Court decision (District of Columbia, et al. v Heller, 2008). The Court Justice Scalia wrote in the majority opinion: “The Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.“. Justice Scalia went on to define a militia as “… comprised all males physically capable of acting in concert for the common defense ….” “The Anti-Federalists feared that the Federal Government would disarm the people in order to disable this citizens’ militia, enabling a politicized standing army or a select militia to rule. The response was to deny Congress power to abridge the ancient right of individuals to keep and bear arms, so that the ideal of a citizens’ militia would be preserved.” he explained. On September 13, 1994, the Federal Assault Weapons Ban went into effect. A Washington Post editorial published two days later was candid about the ban's real purpose:“[N]o one should have any illusions about what was accomplished [by the ban]. Assault weapons play a part in only a small percentage of crime. The provision is mainly symbolic; its virtue will be if it turns out to be, as hoped, a stepping stone to broader gun control.” In a challenge to the authority of the Federal government to require State and Local Law Enforcement to enforce Federal Law (Printz v United States) the U.S. Supreme Court rendered a decision in 1997. For the majority opinion Justice Scalia wrote: "…. this Court never has sanctioned explicitly a federal command to the States to promulgate and enforce laws and regulations When we were at last confronted squarely with a federal statute that unambiguously required the States to enact or administer a federal regulatory program, our decision should have come as no surprise….. It is an essential attribute of the States' retained sovereignty that they remain independent and autonomous within their proper sphere of authority.” So why should non-gun owners, a majority of Americans, care about maintaining the 2nd Amendment right for citizens to bear arms of any kind? The answer is “The Battle of Athens, TN”. The Cantrell family had controlled the economy and politics of McMinn County, Tennessee since the 1930s. Paul Cantrell had been Sheriff from 1936 -1940 and in 1942 was elected to the State Senate. His chief deputy, Paul Mansfield, was subsequently elected to two terms as Sheriff. In 1946 returning WWII veterans put up a popular candidate for Sheriff. On August 1 Sheriff Mansfield and 200 “deputies” stormed the post office polling place to take control of the ballot boxes wounding an objecting observer in the process. The veterans bearing military style weapons, laid siege to the Sheriff’s office demanding return of the ballot boxes for public counting of the votes as prescribed in Tennessee law. After exchange of gun fire and blowing open the locked doors, the veterans secured the ballot boxes thereby protecting the integrity of the election. And this is precisely why all Americans should be concerned about protecting all of our right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment! Throughout history, disarming the populace has always preceded tyrants’ accession of power. Hitler, Stalin, and Mao all disarmed their citizens prior to installing their murderous regimes. At the beginning of our own nation’s revolution, one of the first moves made by the British government was an attempt to disarm our citizens. When our Founding Fathers ensured that the 2nd Amendment was made a part of our Constitution, they were not just wasting ink. They were acting to ensure our present security was never forcibly endangered by tyrants, foreign or domestic. If there is a staggering legal precedent to protect our 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms and if stricter gun control laws are not likely to reduce gun related crime, why are we having this debate? Other than making us and our elected representatives feel better because we think that we are doing something to protect our children, these actions will have no effect and will only provide us with a false sense of security. So, what do we believe will be effective? First, it is important that we recognize that this is not a gun control problem; it is a complex sociological problem. No single course of action will solve the problem. Therefore, it is our recommendation that a series of diverse steps be undertaken, the implementation of which will require patience and diligence to realize an effect. These are as follows: 1. First and foremost we support our Second Amendment right in that “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed”. 2. We support State and Local School Boards in their efforts to establish security protocols in whatever manner and form that they deem necessary and adequate. One of the great strengths of our Republic is that State and Local governments can be creative in solving problems. Things that work can be shared. Our point is that no one knows what will work and there is no one single solution, so let’s allow the State and Local governments with the input of the citizens to make the decisions. Most recently the Cleburne Independent School District will become the first district in North Texas to consider allowing some teachers to carry concealed guns. We do not opine as to the appropriateness of this decision, but we do support their right to make this decision for themselves. 3. We recommend that Assisted Outpatient Treatment (AOT) laws be passed in every State. AOT is formerly known as Involuntary Outpatient Commitment (IOC) and allows the courts to order certain individuals with mental disorders to comply with treatment while living in the community. In each of the mass shooting incidents the perpetrator was mentally unstable. We also believe that people who have been adjudicated as incompetent should be simultaneously examined to determine whether they should be allowed the right to retain/purchase firearms. 4. We support the return of firearm safety programs to schools along the lines of the successful "Eddie the Eagle" program, which can be taught in schools by Peace Officers or other trained professionals. 5. Recent social psychology research clearly indicates that there is a direct relationship between gratuitously violent movies/video games and desensitization to real violence and increased aggressive behavior particularly in children and young adults (See Nicholas L. Carnagey, et al. 2007. “The effect of video game violence on physiological desensitization to real-life violence” and the references therein. Journal of Experimental Social Psychology 43:489-496). Therefore, we strongly recommend that gratuitous violence in movies and video games be discouraged. War and war-like behavior should not be glorified. Hollywood and video game producers are exploiting something they know nothing about. General Sherman famously said “War is Hell!” Leave war to the Professionals. War is not a game and should not be "sold" as entertainment to our children. 6. We support repeal of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990. This may sound counter-intuitive, but it obviously isn’t working. It is our opinion that “Gun-Free Zones” anywhere are too tempting of an environment for the mentally disturbed individual to inflict their brand of horror with little fear of interference. While governmental and non-governmental organizations, businesses, and individuals should be free to implement a Gun-Free Zone if they so choose, they should also assume Tort liability for that decision. 7. We believe that border states should take responsibility for implementation of border control laws to prevent illegal shipments of firearms and drugs. Drugs have been illegal in this country for a long, long time yet the Federal Government manages to seize only an estimated 10% of this contraband at our borders. Given this dismal performance record that is misguided and inept (“Fast and Furious”), we believe that border States will be far more competent at this mission. 8. This is our country, these are our rights. We believe that it is time that we take personal responsibility for our choices and actions rather than abdicate that responsibility to someone else under the illusion that we have done something that will make us all safer. We have a responsibility to stand by our principles and act in accordance with them. Our children are watching and they will follow the example we set. The undersigned Quiet Professionals hereby humbly stand ever present, ever ready, and ever vigilant. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1100 Green Berets Signed this Letter We have a list of all their names and unlike any MSM outlets we can confirm that over 1100 Green Berets did sign.

  16. 1 - 29 - 2013 Before the decision was announced near delete three zeros of the Iraqi currency, and that the project will be launched early next year and will last for two to three years. Then came other statements Announces Government Act implementation of the present resolution and postponed to a later date. It will project permission on paper as dub, Deputy Director of the Central Bank of the appearance of Mohammed Saleh? .... The decision was to delete the zeros of the Iraqi currency with a lot of pros and cons, economists believed that the resolution would lead to the collapse of the national currency and see some of the latest that he would return to the country with great interest and unfortunately wait in its implementation of a joint project between the Government and the Central Bank. As long as the Government seeks to postponed due to security concern, it could not be implemented in this year or the following year as Deputy Director of the Central Bank, the timing is very important in this case and that its implementation must coincide with the beginning of the fiscal year, so you will not find space for inevitably implementation this year. Valid regrets on delaying the project for the country's economic performance as long as it will improve the efficiency of cash and reduces the impact of big numbers, monetization needs to cash large and small groups will be dealing with categories such as (50 dinars (f) 100 dinars) and (200 dinars) in addition to less of the dinar (JD half and quarter-dinars) and (50 Fils, 25 Fils). And is confirmed by the economic and financial expert at the Central Bank who doesn't see Majed mock difficulty in the implementation of the resolution as it will help in the process of reducing the volume of currency trading in large transactions and will lead to more accurate price policy in the future as long as it will be dealing with thousands and millions rather than billions as well as its role in the detection of forgeries before the Central Bank will impose on banks using state-of-the-art techniques for the detection of forgeries. Adds «and the techniques to be used in printing the new currency will be strong only if behind that organized gangs or assisted by the State because the precise specifications and methods established by the Central Bank will be very strict. In contrast, the Economist warns Tawfik inhibitor from the collapse of the national currency in the case of application of the decision to delete the three zeros, indicating the need to prolong the currency switch and not drag the old currency and the new release directly, but do this together so as not to cause harm to the economy or any direct impact on the living conditions of the citizens. On the other hand, the mana that the counterfeiting of currency is another reason in its collapse so warns this occurs particularly that there are large gangs and Division of work capable of forging the largest Iraqi currency. Most citizens regarded the decision to delete the three zeros from the currency look apprehension after they used their pocket to carry paper large groups and stakeholders, including dealing with the hundreds of millions. Businessman Saleh believes wazani deleting zeros would be detrimental to the stock trading level in Iraq market for securities, because there will be lost if shares delete zeros. And works in the area of stock weighted since 2005 and has increased his fondness when developed using electronic screens, but does not hide his fear of failure to deal, in particular, that the stock will drop foreign stock to block the signing of agreements with foreign investment companies that believe that currency will reduce profits. Meanwhile, Assistant Professor in the Faculty of administration and economy just Abdul Jalil that Iraq is not ready to delete the zeros of the dinar, because it needs to stabilize the political and economic security, and Iraq the banner does not need replacement currency as much as is needed to control the oscillation in the dinar against the dollar. And Abdul Jalil said the lifting of zeros would cost the State budget amounts and may open the door to corruption and waste of public money as well as not addressing the inflation problem because Iraqi market importers of all goods and services from abroad means a significant drain of foreign exchange. In response to these concerns, the Deputy Director of the Central Bank to force Iraqi dinar which has become similar to hard currency policy of the Central Bank controlling Monetary liquidity in the local market. There was a large cash reserve of hard currency is kept to face difficult circumstances that may occur in the country that gives power to the dinar currency. The policy of the Central Bank according to the benefit to the stability of the dinar to the US dollar, the Iraqi dinar price weighted equal to the US dollar over the next two years after implementation of the project to delete the three zeros of the Iraqi currency. Saleh believes Iraqi citizen needs to make in the villages and towns and also school students and that the media's role in helping citizens to receive project. Economic expert confirms this view Majed mock, explaining that the new currency would be gradual so as not to experience ' to any defect or blackmail from stakeholders until the old currency is withdrawn completely, also required a large information campaign run by the Central Bank and its associates to educate the citizen.

  19. I went into my local Chase bank this past Friday to take care of some things related to my accounts. I sat down with my personal banker whom I've known for about 2 years now. He knows that I am invested, and he actually decided to invest himself after he and I had talked about the dinar on several occasions, and after doing some research on his own.After my business was completed, I made a remark to him that I wish this thing would pop, so I could pay off some bills and purchase a new home... he stated that he really hopes for the same, but that he hasn't heard anything. Well, as I said..that was Friday. This morning, I woke up to find an email from his personal email account (not his bank email). He simply stated that during a meeting that the branch had on Saturday after closing, that they received some information from the branch manager concerning the IQD.I truly have no idea what he found out, but he asked if I was available for lunch today...and that he would fill me in on the info atthat time! Its not unusual for us tto have lunch together, or to get together after hours...because we have become friends over the past couple years. But he has never asked to get together because of something concerning the dinar! I have NEVER posted a bank story..or for that matter....this is only about the 2nd or 3rd thread that I have ever started...period! I am fired up about our lunch today...and I will share any info that in get later today after we meet. It will probably be after 5pm before I am able to post what he has to say! Just for your information, this banker handles wealth management for my region for this bank. I don't know if he is involved in foreign currencies or not. Just thought I'd share what I woke up to this morning! God bless!! Go RI!!

  20. Dog not good at mathematics but if it takes 1166 dinars to make $1 then it changes where it only took 500 dinars to make $1 Seems to me the dinar is now worth more. So the dinar gained in worth and has become higher. Lower becomes higher I'm a freaking genus

  21. KAPERONI: No date, but Google says it was posted 1/29/2013 (6 hours prior to find) based on hits (16) it appears correct. Links also have embedded date of 1/29. This is from Kuwaiti paper... Will return to the country major interest Economists: decision to delete the zeros from the currency .. Necessity Iraqi Currency In Need Of A Political Decision To Save Them By As Rashad Before the period was announced near the implementation of the decision of the deletion of three zeros from the Iraqi currency, and that the project will be launched early next year and will continue for two to three years. He then appeared other comments announces lingered government to the implementation of this resolution and postponed to another date. FULL ARTICLE & LINK AT END OF COMMENTS KAPERONI: IMO, This article can only be interpreted as a float. Many of the quotes are from previous interviews for sure. And the reference to Saleh implies he still was working at the CBI at the time of his comments. But again, the article itself appears to have just come out...old information or not, it is good information. BLUEYESINLEVIS: "they must coincide with the beginning of the fiscal year, so you will not find space for implementation inevitably during this year .. And regrets for the postponement of the project because it is economic benefit to the country" I dont see it as the rate not moving for 2 years..... If they start a float on Jan 1 2014.. the rate will rise.. and over the next 2 to 3 years.. we would see it up to a buck.. maybe even up to the 3.41 everyone expects. So if the dinar is worth a dime.. say a year from now... we will STILL be very wealthy.. cash in a little... hold some back for when it hits a higher rate. The good thing about this is.. there would be NO LOP. Also.. this article sounds very , very familiaar.. and it could be that it is a reprint in Kuwait from back last fall? Remember .. this is not the CBI.. Mthis is Majid Picture.. the economist. It does seem very familiar. from back in September. It begs the question, though. How serious are they about having to do it at the start of the fiscal year? In light of the present situation.. ar they going to make changes to THIS plan.. like this is a change from the old plan? Could they return to the old plan? Lots of questions.. few answers.. the nature of this investment. Looking at other old articles. Last fall the CBI talked a lot about it being critical to introduce the lower denoms at the beginning of a calendar year... but the idea.. IIRC.. was/is that the rate change is a separate thing... and that lifting of the rate may not be dependent on the calendar year.. and it actually needs to come in advance of the introduction of the lower denoms... so I dont see why we cant see the rate lift/float this year... still using the USD.. and then as the rate rises.. we see the release of the lower denoms in January. TIMSTERS: blueeyes when they introduced the denoms we hold now was in the middle of the years so do you think it really matters?.i posted it before . JOEG: Old or new, parts of this article make me wonder just how close (or far away) our understanding of the plan is. It clearly states equal to a dollar after implementing the delete 3 zeroes project. This statement makes me wonder how accurate we are in believing the delete 3 zeroes phase is a separate step after the rise in value. My understanding of the board's consensus understanding is that there are two distinct phases: 1) raise the value, and then 3) delete 3 zeroes by replacing the currency. If that understanding is correct, then I question it. It clearly states the rise to a dollar will occur after implementing the delete 3 zeroes project, which implies the delete 3 zeroes project is the name of the entire overall plan that includes the rise in value and the removal of the currency. I know, I know, some of you who take what others say as the gospel are going to scream, "We beat this to death, read Kap's other posts, blah, blah, blah." Well, I have read them and I've always been a bit skeptical of the two-phase plan (research my other posts), and after reading this article, I'm even more skeptical. I don't care what the board's consensus understanding is, this article (and others) clearly indicate the entire overall plan is called "delete 3 zeroes," not that the phrase "delete 3 zeroes" is an individual step to occur after the rise in value. AND, old or new, this article clearly reminds us that the delete-3-zeroes plan (which, according to the article includes a rise in value) isn't going to occur in 2013, as I have always predicted (research my other posts). When it doesn't happen by 01Feb, who ya gonna believe? When it doesn't happen by 23Feb, who ya gonna believe? When it doesn't happen in 60-90 days (or now it's down to about 50-80 days, I forget when the prediction was made), who ya gonna believe? I agree with almost all of the board's consensus plan (i.e., a float instead of an RV, etc.), but it's always been the TIMING of the rise in value that I don't agree with (Kap said we're allowed to disagree!). ALSO, I don't understand the selective yellow highlights (please don't get me wrong, I love the highlights, but they seem a bit skewed at times), For example, why isn't the text highlighted that talks about nothing happening for two years? Only the text of the people who says it has to happen now is highlighted. There are two sides to the story, those who say it has to happen now and those who say it has to wait. Those who say it has to wait are no less credible than those who say it has to happen now. These articles are like our newspapers that quote democrats and republicans. dems and repubs are usually 180 degrees opposite (just like in this article), and the ones currently in power are the dems so what they say goes. Same for this article---Maliki is in power, so what he and his side say goes, whether we like it or not. Therefore, I'm sticking to my guns and my original prediction that it ain't gonna happen in 2013. We'll see who's right. Just an opinion. KAPERONI: I have my own interpetation of that quote. If they float the dinar, it will not be implimented into the budget this year anyway. Only after it's value is equal to, or greater than the dollar will that happen. Therefore, this statement is a bit misleading to us as all we care about is the rise/float/rv to begin. If Iraq begins the float now, I would expect that 2014 budget would incorporate the rate of the dinar. TONY: I maintain that maliki will be removed just like saddam, the USA is in full control as they have been from the start. Wasn't the US that devalued the dinar? the reality is the board of directors gave the governor the power raise the value of the iraqi dinar and as kap has said it will be a float so the value of the dinar can rise dependent on the market demand. There would be no reason for the board of directors to give the governor of the CBI power to raise the value if they were not about to implement it period. I understand you frustration joeg that's probably why you are so negative. But the reality is there are far more learned and informed people who dedicate their to educate themselves and find factual evidence which supports an increase in the value of the IQD in first quarter of 2013 and kap and steve have a lot more knowledge than most. Period! JOEG: Kap, lol, I hear ya bro'. I'm just trying to stir the pot! Tony, c'mon, man, it's just an opinion, like everyone else's. I agree with almost every aspect of Kap's interpretation except the TIMING of the event.. Let's face it, all the gurus on all the websites (including Kap and Steve) have the same batting average, 0.000, when it comes to predicting the timing. Last year, it HAD to happen before this conference or that event or this banking symposium or that thing or this thing or...., and EVERY time, the predicted date came and went. Now, the timing prediction is 23Feb based on the IMF thing, and it seems from last night's call to support that prediction the team has mysteriously changed its tune by now saying that Malarkey will give up and step down sometime next month, regardless of the fact that Kap has posted multiple times in the recent past that he believed Malarkey is a dictator and won't ever step down voluntarily. So, will he or won't he step down? I happen to believe he won't voluntarily step down, which is one of the reasons why I believe it won't happen in 2013 and certainly not by 23Feb. The team sort of supported my theory on last night's call by saying there's too much political instability for the RV/float to happen now (well, I think that's what Steve said, I may be wrong because I can't remember much anymore). Tony, I no longer have frustration because I no longer listen to ANY timing prediction from ANYONE. I have my own timing prediction that I'm at peace with---I don't need to think it's going to happen every other month just to make me feel good. YES, I agree with the team that it will eventually happen, and I agree with Kap that it's going to be a float, and I agree with other aspects of his interpretation. But I don't agree with ANY of these timing predictions that pop up every other month. Political instability, no tariff infrastructure, no admin/contract law, no nothing, etc.,etc.. I believe (an opinion) they're simply not ready. Yes, they NEED it, we all agree on that, but I don't think they're ready. There's a difference between "need" and "ready." And remember, Malarkey is in charge, and Kap occasionally reminds us of Malarkey's weak dinar policy. Why all of a sudden do we believe Malarkey is going to step down voluntarily next month--especially when we know how crazy he is, which means he'll fight tooth and nail to continue his weak dinar policy? Is it because of the IMF or the infamous mysterious "PTB" putting pressue on him. C'mon, gimme a break (just an opinion). As I said, who ya gonna believe when 23Feb comes and goes? I think Kap and the team are the best on the Internet, but personally (and this is just my opinion, so ignore it all you want), I'd like to see all the TIMING predictions end so the team can focus on bringing us the story as it unfolds. As they say, "let it come to us," so why do we need a timing prediction every other month to make us feel good? When a caller asks when it's going to happen (as if anyone really knows), I'd rather hear Kap and Steve say something like, "We don't do timing predictions, just let it come to us." Tony, see you on 23Feb. I've posted multiple times that, if I'm wrong, I'll stand on Kap's front lawn and shout I was wrong. When 23Feb comes and goes, will you do the same?

This is confirmed by financial and economic expert at the Central Bank Majid picture that sees no difficulty in implementing the decision because it will help in the process of reducing the trading volume of currency in transactions large and will lead to fee pricing policy more accurate in the future as long as it will be dealing thousands and millions rather than billions, as well as its role in detect fraud earlier because the central bank will impose on banks use very modern techniques to detect fraud. He adds, As the technologies that will be used in the printing of the new currency will be difficult to penetrate unless the gangs behind it or organization backed by the state because the precise specifications and styles to be set by the central bank will be very strict. In contrast warns economist Tawfiq inhibitor of the collapse of the national currency in the case of the application of the decision to delete the zeros three of them, pointing to the need to prolong the period of the currency exchange and not withdrawn the old currency and launch new direct, but do it together so it would not cause harm to the economy or any direct impact on living conditions of the citizens. On the other hand, sees an inhibitor that counterfeiting process is another reason to collapse and therefore warns that happens, especially that there are great bands and mafias currency capable of forging the biggest Iraqi currency. Most citizens see the decision to delete the three zeros from the national currency look apprehension after their pockets used to carry large paper groups and accustomed stakeholders including dealing with hundreds of millions. The businessman believes weighted in favor of deletion of zeros would hurt the level of share trading in the Iraqi market for securities, because there shares will be lost in case of deletion of zeros. And works weighted in stock since 2005 and increased his passion for them when evolved using screens electronic, but does not hide his fear of failure dealing with them, especially as the stock's foreign exchange reduced the lead to block the signing of agreements with companies of foreign investment, which believes that the change of currency will reduce profits. For his part, sees an assistant professor in the College of Business and Economics Adel Abdul Jalil said Iraq is ready now for the deletion of zeros from the dinar, because it needs to stabilize security, political and economic, and that Iraq opinion does not need to replace the currency as it is needed to control the oscillation happening in the exchange rate of the dinar against the dollar. Jalil confirms that the lifting of the zeroes will cost the state budget large sums may open the door for financial corruption and waste of public money as well as failure to address the problem of inflation because the Iraqi market for all imported goods and services from abroad, which means a large drain of hard currency. In response to these concerns, stresses, deputy director of the Central Bank «the power of the Iraqi dinar, which became like a hard currency thanks to the policy of the central bank in control of the cash raised in the domestic market. He pointed to the existence of a large cash reserve of hard currency is kept to face the difficult circumstances that may occur in the country gives the strength of the dinar against foreign currencies. The central bank's policy is aimed, according to the benefit to the stability of the exchange rate of the dinar against the U.S. dollar, likely equal to the price of the Iraqi dinar against the U.S. dollar during the next two years after the implementation of the project to delete three zeros from the Iraqi currency. And in favor of the view that the Iraqi citizens need to raise awareness in the villages and towns and schools also require that students have a role in the media help citizens to receive the project. The expert economic Majid picture this view, explaining that the circulation of the new currency would be gradual so as not exposed citizen to any defect or blackmail the owners of interests until withdrawing the old currency fully, on condition also do a mass media campaign is overseen by the central bank and entities associated with it to educate citizen. http://www.annaharkw...7&date=29012013

  22. Political agreement on the distribution ratio of oil revenues among citizens Haider Ali Jawad - 01/30/2013 - 1:32 pm | The parliamentary Finance Committee announced the existence of an agreement between the political blocs to allocate 25 per cent of the surplus sale and distribution of oil and between citizens.

  25. TRANSLATION BY ABBY .. Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq; Dr Abdel Bassit Turki Saeed speaking January 12th 2013 at the Union of Arab banks conference in Baghdad ... Also, Note: Lakehouse, sometimes I feel bad after I translate something because someone else has already put their false spin on it. I went back and read the email you sent me and I can't help but wonder why someone would put those points out there. He barely mentions the currency, much less a changing of the currency. The speech is only positive in that it outlines the steps the cbi has taken towards progress. I guess it's a little general and vague, but he definitely doesn't spell out the points mentioned. I guess if someone tries to find a hidden meaning out there they can, but I think someone is trying to mislead people. I'm sorry to all, but the translation I sent you is verbatim what he said. I paused the video after every sentence and wrote it down, then went over it another two times to make sure I didn't miss anything. As much as I wish it was, it's not an RV based speech. I'm still hopeful this will change, especially based on Phoenix's latest intel reports. Sorry again. Lots of love, Abby January 21, 2013 Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq; Dr Abdel Bassit Turki Saeed speaking January 12th 2013 at the Union of Arab banks conference in Baghdad. The governor explained current changes in banking law in Iraq and the monetary prevailing situation. (check back for translation)Hi Lakehouse .. From Abby ... This is basically word for word what he said. I didn't hear number 4 directly, but it was implied. In the name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate: The brother, First Deputy of the Union of Arab Banks, Dr. Qusay Al-suhail, guests of the country of Iraq, attendees, bankers. Good morning. It pleases me that the CBI participates with the colleagues of the Union of Arab Banks through this forum of Baghdad's economic and banking sector. Baghdad, which is used to being the Arab embodiment of all which is good and unifies, and which is expected to increase in the coming days, insuring a side of cooperation and development at the level of the Arab economic policies and advanced banking industries, bringing back the area's placement in the management of its resources, at least at the regional level. It is not a secret that there is a weakness in the economic diversity in Iraq, and its dependence on a main supply which is oil, and which reflects the economic specifications. Despite this economic infrastructure which we have inherited, at this time it presents a unique opportunity to create economic change and speed up development. This is in comparison to developing economies, especially the Iraqi economy, enrichment in human resources, materialism, and other economic areas. We identified significant sources in Iraq which could have accomplished this earlier, and changed the social and economic reality on many fronts, had it been used in the right form. Hence, we look to preserve these resources and prevent their loss. This is not only due to our legal and managerial responsibilities, as well as the trust placed in us, but also due to the fact that this is an opportunity for the growth, prosperity and development for our future generations. Since 2003, the CBI has taken a number of steps and measures, restlessly balancing between the traditional approach towards conservative monetary policy and between the possible economic consequences of this one sided policy. Thus, it is the return of the traditional policy to prevent the distortion of this policy, and to promote economic stability. The CBI has an independent regulatory authority responsible for the overseeing of the banking sector. It continuously strives to promote the legal environment, creating more productivity in the banking sector. There is a development of the stable banking organizations, and the overseeing and development of the services of the bank, including the increase of electronic services in its various forms, globally available, and a plan to increase the banking work force to increase one bank for every 40,000 individuals in Iraq. My banking colleagues: We recognize that the opportunities and roles in the sector are limited. And at this time the returns and profits are declining. However, it is unacceptable that our revenue sources and our actual investments, continue to compete with the currency. We have adopted an exclusive law of the reserves at 15%. 10% is kept by the CBI, and 5% is kept at the bank itself, allowing for larger investment opportunities for the bank. The economic management in Iraq is based on a documented constitution geared towards the market economy. In a country where the main resource for a foreign currency is the overall economic activity, here the responsibility to maintain this currency falls on the central bank while the true sources of income insure this. From here, the role of the central bank continues. Even in the past three months, it strives to protect this currency for economic activities through the banking sector, to preserve the validity of the procession towards the market economy. This is done keeping within the legal realm of transactions. There has also been an activation of regulatory tools, as well as coordination with the authorities placed to combat money laundering. There is also cooperation with the border control, including the entrance from the province of Kurdistan. This approach complies with increased economic freedom, as well as the insurance of the safety of our private banks. There is also a commitment to support the work of these banks in expanding their boundaries from national to Arab to global. Therefore, we are very serious in continuously striving to build a safe economic and banking future, and to achieve the reality of absolute discretion in spending money in the proper way, maintaining security. We work from this platform, which resolves sensitive issues in the activities of the banking and economic sector, in order to succeed in providing practical recommendations to develop performance to serve our society and nation. I would like to thank all of our research colleagues, who have researched, communicated and presented. In conclusion, I thank our colleagues at the Union of Arab Banks, the Global Bank and the Iraqi Banks, for their efforts, and we hope for increased communication, because nothing scratches your skin like your nail. (This is just a saying which implies that they are one through their common goals, etc.) It is a priority to start building together without waiting for tomorrow. We must build this starting now. Those who do the weight of an atom will see wealth. (Meaning even those who do a little will see blessings) And peace be upon you, as well as God's mercy and blessings.

  30. Gun Haters Do Not Understand The 2nd Amendment Dec.27, 2012 Every time there is an incident of gun related violence, it seems the crazies start coming out the woodwork like roaches in a wood pile. Do gun haters just not understand what the 2nd amendment is about, or are they just stupid? Lets take this video about an anti-gun rally. Place the blame where it belongs, on mentally ill people. Jeffrey Dahmer murdered 17 people, and did not use a single gun. Adam Lanza murdered 26 people. What did Jeffrey Dahmer and Adam Lanza have in common? Both of them were mentally ill. If we want to make society safe, lets keep mentally ill people locked away from the general public. Whether its a gun, a knife, baseball bat,,,, mentally ill people will find a way to kill others. The true purpose of the 2nd Amendment Our forefathers established the 2nd amendment for a reason. George Washington did not write the British to death, he took up arms, established a militia, and killed the British. This nation was founded and protected through the private ownership of guns. Who protected New Orleans during the war of 1812? It was a bunch of men with their hunting rifles. Who protected the United States when there was no Army, no Marines and no Navy? It was the everyday people. If the United States were to be invaded, who would step up to protect the nation? It would be the armed citizens. There is an old saying, the pen is mightier then the sword. I would like to add a second part to that saying, “when the pen and the sword both fail to delivery the needed results, you pick up your rifle and the kill the enemy.” Did the British give up because of what some newspaper wrote about King George III? The people that wrote negatively about the King of England were imprisoned. Our forefathers took up arms and killed every red coat they saw. Did Mexico peacefully hand over Texas? It was armed citizens who beat General Santa Anna at the battle of San Jacinto on 21 April 1836 that won Texas its independence. Hitler did not give up because of what some newspaper wrote about him. Our great grandfathers invaded Germany, bombed the hell out of it, and killed every nazi they saw. World War II was won by guns, bombs, gun powder and bullets. Pen and paper did not convince the nazis to give up. Where did the guns for World War II come from? From factories that made civilian weapons before the war started. It is the duty of every United States citizen to contribute something to national security. The United States will never be invaded. Why is that? Because we have 9 guns for every 10 people. No other nation in the world is as armed and ready for war as the United States. The gun haters do not care about national security, nor do they not care about your rights. The 2nd Amendment does two things, it protects our nation, and it protects our government. When the pen fails to protect the government, the 2nd Amendment ensures the people have the ability to protect the government through force. Hitler would be proud of the anti-gun protestors.

  32. You may think you have plenty of time - Reality wise -- you are not promised the next breath -Even if you plan on hiring professionals to help you manage your millions you better have some smarts about yourself or they will wind up spending your money or controlling it so you can't - You want to be smart enough to know what they are doing is in your best interest not theirs <3 <3 <3 UNEEK <3 <3 <3 THIS IS POST # 500 FOR ME YEAHHHHH **FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY ** ** SEEK YOUR OWN PROFESSIONALS ** The Difference Between Your Accountant and Your Financial Planner By Nora Dunn Many business owners surmise that their accountant can do the job of both accounting and financial planning (or vice versa) when in fact, the two roles complement each other. Neither professional can do the entire job of the other. When I was a Certified Financial Planner (CFP), I prided myself on the designation which took me years of both study and professional experience to earn. I boasted a broad base of knowledge that included some pretty intricate tax planning idioms and strategies. When it came time for me to file my taxes, I obviously knew more than enough to get the job done well. However, in developing a repertoire of accountants who I could recommend to my clients, I figured the best way to recommend a professional is to attest to their service from experience. I took my (already drafted) taxes to the accountant for filing and in 20 short minutes, he worked his magic to save me an additional $3,500 in taxes. I'm not sure what I missed or what he did, but it sold me on the concept that accountants and financial planners offer complementary roles to business owners. What Your Accountant Can Do For You Quite obviously, the buzz word for accountants is "taxes" and everything to do with taxes. From strategizing to sheltering to budgeting and tax preparation, this is their main focus. This is also quite a broad category that encompasses so much more than what appears on the surface. If your business is still small, or if you are a whiz with numbers, you may wonder why you need to spend money on an accountant. Your tax preparation software is intuitive, and your situation is fairly simple, right? (Hey, I thought so too.) What your accountant can also do is identify big picture opportunities and strategies that will help you get — or stay — ahead. Are you depreciating all the right assets in the most productive way? Is your business structure good for you now and in the long run? How does the fine print in the most recent changes to tax laws affect you, and are there any opportunities therein? Your accountant should have a deep knowledge of these issues. Here are some of the issues an accountant can help you with: Tax preparation Financial statements Depreciation Breakdown of expenses Appropriate tax shelter recommendations Tax laws and how they affect you Business structure recommendations and advice Business growth and succession strategy in relation to taxes Audit representation Accountants generally charge an hourly fee for their advice, and thus are quite task-oriented. You will usually need to be specific about how you want your accountant to help you, but their breadth of knowledge can be deep. What Your Financial Planner Can Do For You If accounting is all about taxes, then financial planning is all about investments — but just as accountants can offer so much more than filing your taxes, so too can financial planners do more than invest your money. Financial planners are also (ideally) focused on the big picture, but the picture in question is a little different from the one accountants look at. Financial planners are very goal-oriented and holistic, with an eye to building wealth in the most effective manner while taking into account the life goals and needs of clients as individuals. For business owners, financial planners often provide a more comprehensive look at how your business fits into your life overall — both from a logistical perspective as well as an emotional one. Similar to accountants, financial planners are experts in their field and will identify opportunities that you might not know about even if you're well-read and financially savvy. Have you thought about how the dynamics of your family would affect your business in the event of an emergency or unforeseen circumstance? What is your business succession plan, and are you maximizing succession opportunities? Are you truly invested within your comfort zone while maximizing your opportunities for growth? Can you take the (sometimes irrational) emotion out of investing to make the best decisions for you and your family in the long run? Here are some of the things your financial planner will focus on: Budgeting Investing (short, medium, and long-term, in a variety of vehicles) Asset allocation Estate planning Insurance planning (disability, life, investment, shareholder protection) Changes in the industry that affect you Business structure and strategy tips Wealth accumulation and protection In contrast to accountants, financial planners can be paid in a variety of different ways. The three main forms of payment are commission-based, fee-based, and asset-based. Commission-based planners earn a percentage commission on money you invest with them or insurance policies you buy. This unfortunately means that not all commission-based planners may have your interests at heart, but not all commission-earners are to be judged as pushy salespeople. Fee-based planners will charge a flat fee for a set service, and asset-based planners charge a percentage of your overall assets invested with them. In choosing the best advisor for your needs, asking how they are paid is important but not solely pivotal. Gray Areas You may find a financial planner or accountant who seems to provide the whole enchilada. For example, increasing numbers of accountants are broadening their expertise to include additional designations in financial planning so they can do just that; separate advisers, financial planners and accountants have many overlapping areas of knowledge and advice. While it may be appealing to have an adviser who can provide one-stop-shopping for you, your business, and your family, I still support the idea of creating a financial team to support you — specifically your accountant, financial planner, and lawyer. Each of these experts has a broad base of knowledge and will bring a viable perspective to the table that can also keep the other advisers in check. Each of these fields is an entire degree unto itself and should be respected as such. No one advisor can truly do the job of all three (or even two) without letting something slip through the cracks. What to Look for in a Financial Planner and Accountant When looking for a financial planner or accountant, the best way to find somebody you will trust is to get a referral. Ask family, friends, and colleagues who they use and schedule a meeting with that adviser. They should provide the initial meeting free of charge and should take an active interest in getting to know your comprehensive situation — both personal and professional. Ask how accessible they will be when you need advice and what their proposed service strategy is. Look for a professional with a designation or degree, such as the internationally recognized Certified Financial Planner designation. Ask how they're paid; if it is an hourly wage (as is often the case with accountants), get an annual estimate given their knowledge of your situation. Also, make sure the professional in question is familiar with specific legislation that might be applicable to your situation. For example, if you have an international or location independent business, your accountant should be an expert on international tax law and your financial planner should know how best to structure your assets to be internationally accessible. By building a team of experts who support you and your business, you stand the greatest chance of achieving everything you want, professionally as well as personally. You work hard on — and in — your business. Aren't you worth it? http://www.wisebread...bref=readmore-3

  35. To Hoosier - I apologise for my flippant post a day or so ago and I am now humbled. Before I was put out to pasture due to my own old age - one of my previous jobs was in aged care - so understand the emotional journey for families. Also, I must also admit that at first I didn't believe your banker story - but now I do - so I apologise for that also. To Osmosis. I thought I was being really resourceful thinking up "OZmosis" as I live in Australia. I wasn't aware that there was a long-term Osmosis in the system - so I apologise for almost using your name.

Several entities have shown their hand on this initial offering. Several media sources have proven relaiable as well as a few key officials who have been quoted were spot on.
