  1. I'm on a multitude of other forums, with subjects on exotic birds, micro-brewed beers, foreign currencies, and street rods. This is the only one that let's someone get away with one-line posts that load up the "What's New" section with literally NOTHING of substance. I pop in here and see nine topics listed currently under "What's New", and they all have the same Avatar under Last Post. I have a special needs step-son, and this is on par with the same type of attention-getting stuff that he does. He wants recognition for every single little thing that he does, regardless of how insignificant it is. If he shuts the patio door when he comes in from the back yard, he stands there and repeats, "Look, I closed the door." until someone says, "Good job.". It was cute when he was 3. He's 16 now... Let's just give Sandfly his award for Most Posts now, and save ourselves from having to see anymore one-line posts that contribute NOTHING to the subject. Maybe that will stop the insanity, and the copy cats that have jumped on his bandwagon...

  3. Be careful......The so called "Guru" Breilting that you are calling out has in fact been the primary if not only "guru" banging the "watch the note count" hammer for over three years straight as an indicator of where we are at in this thing. Secondly, he has also said, which many of us around here also agree, that the CBI is purposely keeping the rate down so that they 1) can rebuild their country on the cheap, no different that Germany post WWII, 2) Offer a greater or more stable new exchange rate having drawn in surplus notes out of circulation, 3) combating corruption by trying to locate embezzled and counterfeit funds while they reduce the note count and 4) they are working on major economic and infrastructure legislation so that they can support the new rate e.g. HCL, Investment Laws, Article VII. So.... the rate would not necessarily be increased by the CBI even though they had achieved a substantial note reduction for the reasons stated above. We are all in this for various reasons. My caution on calling people out is that this practice often shows what we really know and don't know about this speculation. My mother used to tell me when it came to spouting off at the mouth, "it is better to be silent and people wonder if you are a fool than to speak and confirm it." I have tried to live by her admonition and that of Scripture which teaches me to, season my words with grace. None of us are perfect, let's try to give a break to those who are trying to do good. Blessings All,

  5. Marine Vet’s Viral Post Warning ISIS: ‘Attack Us and There Will be No Mercy’ 27,195Shares By Kyle Becker 8 hours ago Marine veteran Nick Powers responded to the brutal murder of American photo journalist James Foley carried out by ISIS/ISIL/IS (whatever they’re named this week). Warning: Strong language. As I sit here constantly hearing and watching you execute innocent men, women and children in the Middle East I chuckle. Why do I chuckle you may ask? Well let me explain something to you cowardice fools who think you are so tough behind all your propaganda videos. You are scaring a population that doesn't know how to fight, you’re bullying the weak. You say Islam is the religion of peace,but since when does terrorizing the innocent and beheading men, women and children constitute peace? WTF? But keep in mind, what did Saddam’s troops do when we came rolling into town? They surrendered, twice… So all your empty threats of coming to America and raising your flag over the White House amuse me more than any of you sick, sadistic bastards could ever imagine or comprehend. In 2012 there was about 21.2 million veterans in the United States. Do you understand what that means? Let me break it down for you. That means there are literally millions of disgruntled, dysfunctional, pissed off veterans who have been dealing with years of abuse from their government stabbing them in the backs and having to watch their friends die because you Islamic extremist idiots can’t seem to act like normal human beings and stop terrorism and the violence. It’s one thing to take over an Islamic state, but if my memory serves me correctly, I’m pretty sure we plowed through Fallujah in 4 days. Better yet, it took us about month to control your entire country. At this point, with 13+ years of war under our belts, how long do you think it would take us to do it all over again? I’ll let you draw your own conclusions on that one. Do you really think you stand a chance on US soil? Do you really think it would be smart to poke that bear? Remember, never bite the hand that feeds you. Remember we are armed to the teeth in the US and I can promise you this… the Geneva Conventions will not apply to you. You attack us and there will be no mercy. We will bring the righteous hand of God down upon you and crush you. The ball is in your court now ISIS. We are more than ready to arrange your so called “meeting” with your 72 virgins and send you to your “prophet” Mohamed. The original post comes “A Subtle Message to ISIS” came via the Warfighter Foundation. American Live Wire carried his disclaimer: UPDATE: To all who read this and assume this is against all Muslims, I am sorry you are too blind to read, this isn’t against Muslims in general. If you feel otherwise I suggest you look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself one question, am I an extremist? You say Islam is the religion of peace, since when does terrorizing the innocent (beheading women and children, wtf?) mean peace? This is directed at all extremist, if this offends/makes you angry or think I am racist you are are probably an extremist… It’s one thing for ISIS to brutally murder innocent women and children, and execute Americans on social media. The terrorist army is fast making mortal enemies around the world, and it doesn't take a genius to figure out this isn't going to end well for them. Editor’s note: This article was updated after the origin of the letter was uncovered.

  6. The Stupendous Reality of Being "In Christ Jesus" A Word for Saturday - 24 August 2014 Being “in Christ Jesus” is a stupendous reality. It is breathtaking what it means to be in Christ. United to Christ. Bound to Christ. If you are “in Christ” listen to what it means for you: 1. In Christ Jesus you were given grace before the world was created. 2 Timothy 1:9, “He gave us grace in Christ Jesus before the ages began.” 2. In Christ Jesus you were chosen by God before creation. Ephesians 1:4, “God chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world.” 3. In Christ Jesus you are loved by God with an inseparable love. Romans 8:38–39, “I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” 4. In Christ Jesus you were redeemed and forgiven for all your sins. Ephesians 1:7, “In Christ we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses.” 5. In Christ Jesus you are justified before God and the righteousness of God in Christ is imputed to you. 2 Corinthians 5:21, “For our sake God made Christ to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” 6. In Christ Jesus you have become a new creation and a son of God. 2 Corinthians 5:17, “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” Galatians 3:26, “In Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith.” 7. In Christ Jesus you have been seated in the heavenly places even while he lived on earth.Ephesians 2:6, “God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.” 8. In Christ Jesus all the promises of God are Yes for you. 2 Corinthians 1:20, “All the promises of God find their Yes in Christ.” 9. In Christ Jesus you are being sanctified and made holy. 1 Corinthians 1:2, “To the church of God that is in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus.” 10. In Christ Jesus everything you really needed will be supplied. Philippians 4:19, “My God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” 11. In Christ Jesus the peace of God will guard your heart and mind. Philippians 4:7, “The peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” 12. In Christ Jesus you have eternal life. Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” 13. And in Christ Jesus you will be raised from the dead at the coming of the Lord. 1 Corinthians 15:22, “For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.” All those united to Adam in the first humanity die. All those united to Christ in the new humanity rise to live again. How do we get into Christ? At the unconscious and decisive level it is God’s sovereign work: “From God are you in Christ Jesus.” (1 Corinthians 1:30) But at the conscious level of our own action, it is through faith. Christ dwells in our hearts “through faith.” (Ephesians 3:17) The life we live in union with his death and life “we live by faith in the Son of God.” (Galatians 2:20) We are united in his death and resurrection “through faith.” (Colossians 2:12) This is a wonderful truth. Union with Christ is the ground of everlasting joy, and it is free.

  11. Good questions, Theseus. I too used to ponder all of the myriad possibilities of how the IQD supply in circulation translated to a significant upward revaluation that would benefit us as investors in that currency. But, with the logic of the lopsters, which could be true, as well as the unofficial bean counters and rumormongers who take every article coming out of Iraq as some kind of indication that the RV is imminent, I have now adopted the same wait-and-see approach that you advocate. It either will happen to our benefit, or it won't. No amount of speculation one way or the other has had any effect on it in all the years I have been aboard this "ride-to-the-finish." Meanwhile, I choose to visit here daily, glean what is of interest to me from that which is not, and try to have a little fun along the way. It's just my way of maximizing my investment in IQD in ways I never expected when this all began for me. I have yet to have anyone present an answer to the question I posed recently of just where the value of the former Saddam-era Iraq Dinar went when it became virtually worthless during the invasion and war in 2003. In other words, who or what entities actually gained monetarily from all that apparent wealth? Where exactly did it go? Did it just vanish, or did it wind up in the coffers of other countries known and unknown? Was it just a notation on the banker's books, to be corrected at some far off time in the future? If a property I own is devalued as a punitive action against me, and I do what is required to redeem it, there has to be a physical location where it resides while not in my possession. That is what I long to know about the value of the former Iraq Dinar. Once that question is answered, I believe we shall be closer to fully understanding the dynamics of this whole business rather than relying on the guesswork of amateurs posing as the knowledgeable Guru of the Day!

  12. The Republican party would be foolish to put Mitt at the head - he might be the best person for the job, but he's not the best person to WIN it. Presidential races are no longer about America... our country has devolved to the point that our Presidential elections are all about choosing the best actors or the candidate that promises the most free stuff. Obama proved that twice already.

  17. Again, no problem. The Iraqi dinar prior to, and during the early years of the Saddam regime, did have a true value above that of the US dollar. At that time they were global players in areas of international trade, their main commodity being oil. The country of Iraq has made it well known of their intention to rejoin the globe as they were prior to Saddam. I'm no expert in global economics, in fact, far from it. But I know they can't do this under a dual currency system, and as such, will have to do something about the rate if they hope to get their citizens off of using the dollar. It is my belief, based upon a few years of reading, that that is exactly what they intend on doing and as a result await said change just like you.

  19. Still no RV either. With an M2 of 78-83 TRILLION dinar, a redenomination with a three zero lop is the ONLY logical way for the CBI to re-establish a 1 to 1 exchange rate. Only a fool would think the CBI would RV to 1 to 1 with 83 TRILLION dinar out there. Only a FOOL.

" He added Jubouri that "the negotiating process, its course, the right of the political blocs to express their positions, freeze or suspend, but we believe as a council deputies that there are contexts constitutionality must be respected, and stands the House of Representatives careful in front of respect for periods of time that have been developed in this regard." In his comments on the suspension of direct negotiations to form a government by Sunni parties to protest the massacre in Diyala. He announced al-Jubouri, the formation of a commission of inquiry involving members of the House of Representatives will present its report within 48 hours, adding that "the House of Representatives will hold a special meeting regarding the security incidents that have occurred at the base of Spyker, which took place yesterday (Friday), and we see that the crimes were at the hands of one" . He said House Speaker said, "We will not allow that will take advantage of the security situation anxiety, and profess a kind of atmosphere that frustrate the political process (...) biggest target Arovernm other is aborting all the efforts that are being made in this direction," calling on "all political parties to communicate, and to remove all obstacles for the unity of word and attitude. " Said Saleem al-Jubouri, in the conference, which preceded the parliamentary session, that "all parties expressed their positions (...) They all condemned the acts of crime and all of them, have expressed dismay at what happened, and we are waiting for practical measures to prosecute criminals." And announced a number of Sunni political bloc, on Friday, suspended its participation in the negotiations to form a government headed by Haidar al-Abadi. But these attitudes did not prevent Abadi than a decade "for closed-door meeting" with al-Jubouri at the parliament building yesterday. And the form of Prime Minister outgoing Nuri al-Maliki, a committee of high-to investigate the incident. I also sent a senior Interior Ministry officers to know the circumstances of the incident, which increased sectarian tension in the country.

  26. correct. They are pressing forward because if they DONT that whole country will fail and the PTB wont let that occur, there is way to much money to be made in Iraq to let them NOT form a government. This is why washington is pushing hard for them and Abadi to get it done. Be very weary of what you read from certain news agencies as well at this time. Also its a possibility Maliki could be behind this. Yes their are those that want to see Iraq fail and many many countries that want to see Iraq succeed Babylon indeed will bring wealth to ALL nations for it is written.

Pulling out of the govermnment has grown old for these people, they need to quit living in a world of a thousand years ago an start to not only participate but demand more from their government. They have forgotten they (Sunnis) was the back bone of the insurgency that killed thousands of Iraqs not so many years ago. They need to put their big boy pants on an reach down an try to find a pair of B$$$$ an help secure their country an quit whinning about every little thing that doesn't go their way...Heck, I'll start calling them a Democrat if they don't straighten up.

  32. Certainly the predestined grace of God, salvation in Christ, was planned "before the foundation of the world." We have no part in the planning, purpose, or the carrying out of God's predetermined plan. However, grace (of which we can do nothing) is received. It is found "in Christ" and no other. It is the most wonderful gift that mankind ever received. Yet it must be accepted, and entrance into Christ (the grace of God) requires the response of faith (trust) in the Lord on our part. Plus, there are passages of Scripture that tell us how one can enter Christ, that is, "in Christ" where all the blessings can be found. Free will is a blessing from God. We either make a choice of believing in Him as the Salvation of the world, or we reject Him as the Messiah. Doesn't that require a decision on our part? If not, then we have no choice of eternal destiny; we are either bound for heaven or bound for hell and we can do nothing about it. So why did God demand faith in Christ? So the question still remains. How does one get into Christ? Many scriptures were given of the wonderful blessings "in Christ," which were beautiful and desirable. Now, where are the passages which tell us how to get into Christ? If we do "NOTHING." then the commands of God have no value (which I reject).

  35. Thanks RFJ. If what you say is true, then what was the importance of DE-valuing them in the first place? Apparently, those Dinar were worth something to someone other than in-country in Iraq. Otherwise, what purpose could they serve in funding anything Saddam intended using them for? Just asking the question, because it has always been the basis of my getting involved in the IQD in the first place. The premise has always been, at least from my understanding, that the value was removed by the invading coalition forces to prevent their use in mounting an effective defense. I'm simply trying to get to the bottom of what has become a huge mystery to me of just where/who exactly that value went to, and where is it now. If your information is correct and accurate, then this really is a pipe dream! Billio0

The world has not known You, but I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me. 26 And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them." 1 Peter 1:23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever, 1 John 3:6 Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him. 7 Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous. 8 He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. 9 Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God. 1 John 5:18 We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him. 19 We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one. 20 And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life. 21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen. Wm13

  40. Check out tje upstairs Iraqi News forum. CBI wants to move the official exchange rate to 1116 instead of the current 1166. Thats going in the right direction to get down to what I predicted would happen. I've said all along that the CBI will revalue slowly down to 1000 to 1 and then REDENOMINATE, creating a new ISO code and LOPPING the three zeros. That would solve their hyperinflated M2 problem, while bringing the dinar into a 1 to 1 ratio with the dollar. Of course that would screw over every out of country dinar holder, because they would have to exchange currency theough a website/commission fee AND with the loss of the three zero multiplyer, the dinarian dream (delusion) of becoming rich is flushed down the toilet.. Simple as that.

  42. I certainly hope so. Iraq can't do it on their own, and the rest of the world seems to be too stupid to step in... Everyone mocks the US for being the "World Police", and in most cases I agree that the US should worry about the US and not be a "World Police"... But in this case, we should definitely be "over-reaching" our bounds. The IS (ISIS) is an evil that needs to be exterminated. Right now, WE should be taking AGGRESSIVE action to demolish ISIS... and next to nothing is happening. This is a major factor in why I'm so passionate about a Plan B, a 2nd Passport, and Offshore Asset Protection... Some people are happy to blindly hope that their government will take care of them. NOT ME. I take care of myself and my own, and THAT is why I have my "Plan B".
