    Much abliged Yota, 4 million barrels per day is a huge amount of income based on 50 dollars per barrel. I wonder how long they can keep the exchange rate at its current rate? Not much longer, they need more buying power and to create a middle class that can move money and be able to shop at the nice new malls built in Baghdad. IMO.

    We may be in the same position as last year...... But..... Iraq has moved in leaps and bounds, were almost there (I know weve been almost there for the past few years but this time is different) Hold out a little hope. On another note what is the point in wasting our time and energy calling out people we already know are liars, my time is precious I don't like wasting it on trivial matters.

    Christmas Is for Freedom Our WORD for Saturday, 20 December 2014 Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery. ( Hebrews 2:14–15) Jesus became man because what was needed was the death of a man who was more than man. The incarnation was God’s locking himself into death row. Christ did not risk death. He embraced it. That is precisely why he came: not to be served but to serve and give his life a ransom for many (Mark 10:45). No wonder Satan tried to turn Jesus from the cross! The cross was Satan’s destruction. How did Jesus destroy him? The “power of death” is the ability to make death fearful. The “power of death” is the power that holds men in bondage through fear of death. It is the power to keep men in sin so that death comes as a horrid thing. But Jesus stripped Satan of this power. He disarmed him. He molded a breastplate of righteousness for us that makes us immune to the devil’s condemnation. By his death, Jesus wiped away all our sins. And a person without sin puts Satan out of business. His treason is aborted. His cosmic treachery is foiled. “His rage we can endure, for, lo, his doom is sure.” The cross has run him through. And he will gasp his last before long. Christmas is for freedom. Freedom from the fear of death. Jesus took our nature in Bethlehem, to die our death in Jerusalem, that we might be fearless in our city. Yes, fearless. Because if the biggest threat to my joy is gone, then why should I fret over the little ones? How can you say (really!), “Well, I’m not afraid to die but I’m afraid to lose my job”? No. No. Think..! If death (I said, death!—no pulse, cold, gone!)—if death is no longer a fear, we’re free, really free. Free to take any risk under the sun for Christ and for love. No more bondage to anxiety. If the Son has set you free, you shall be free, indeed!

    CNN. Broadcasting While Tlar Rambles On In A Familiar Drunken Slur About His Friends Guaranteed $3+ Bank Buyouts ! tlar We know the CBI is not waiting on the budget. They have told us that with or without the budget being passed, they will do this when they feel the time is right. We also know that laws are important but laws are political and new laws will be being introduced, modified and changed for eternity. So I don't believe we are waiting on any law at this point. The HCL has been reported as done as far as everything that was needed to be agreed to by both Bagdad and Erbil, and will be implemented Jan 1st as has even been reported in our Washington post. So what's the hold up? It is my belief as I said the other day that there is no hold up. ~~~ The CBI IMO has made a strategic decision to open the new rate on or just before the first of next year to be active with the new budget. They were so close to the new accounting period they decided to wait. I personally believe and have always believed they would have to make an announcement the evening before the day of, or just hours before they change the currency. This announcement would natually have to be well publicized in order to remove as much risk as possible vendors taking advantage of the population, so there will build up to this announcement maybe calling it an "historical event" or other catch phrase. It would have to get everybodies attention. This was one of Shabibi's major concerns is vendors taking advantage and on the day the value changed an unwitting Iraqi still paying 1000 dinar for that apple. When would they do this? In a perfect scenario you would expect them to wait until the very last minute giving everyone little time to do anything but be washed up in the wave of change. What would the rate be? The rate would be best served to be introduced this late in the game at the real value because the 2015 budget would be best served with a reality rate. So it is my opinion that the rate will enter at the level "it is worth" at the present time to only shock the society one time. Next If I were the CBI, I would refer back to the strategic study done in 2008 and I would follow the recommendation to hold firm and support that rate for a predetermined period. It is kind of like setting concrete. Protect it until itis firm enough to let float. If they do it this way it means Managed float. Things to consider when thinking about an intro rate. The GCC goes live Jan 1st. When Iraq becomes an active member in the GCC, the rate of the Iraqi dinar will be instrumental in trade. The budget goes live Jan 1st. The COM and parliament aren't arguing or discussing the budget. They are in agreement on everything which is why the HCL has also been agreed upon. Sager, I believe you are absolutely correct. Until their is a rate we won't see the budget passed. The HCL goes live Jan 1st. The Kurds and Bagdad have said in articles its done just waiting passage. ALL the hard issues that have separated them are resolved and it has also been published to go into effect on Jan 1st here in our papers. Iraq opens for Global business with new laws Jan 1st. The laws that have been being passed and those laws yet to come are all geared to acquire investment. Iraq has been selling itself as a good economic investment for the last 60 days sending emissaries to many countries. The thing that will bring all this together now is the currency. The coming announcement eluded to the fact that it would be historic and tie all the economic plans, programs and institutions together. Name anything else other than the currency that could achieve this effect. Iraq becomes a donor country a year late, Jan 1st Other things to consider - The IMF said their work is done in Iraq. The IMF is the guadian and sheriff of world currencies. Also most remember the Iraqi donation to the Arab league two years ago. While other Mid-East countries gave millions and millions of dollars each in donations, Iraq gave 36 million dinars worth a paltry $36,000 USD. I thought at the time they did this that their donation was accompanied by a note saying, "don't cash this until we call you." It took longer than anyone envisioned to finish this project. We also know that the GCC will immediately begin implement, if not already ready, on a common currency much like the Euro. Iraq will definitely be better served by showing true value verses an arbitrarily low start rate. This is all opinion only but it is what I feel. I also do not think that they will drop to 1000 then delete the zeros. This was proposed by an economist and not by the CBI a few years ago. It was only mentioned by a respondent on Abadi's website as his thoughts or possibility. I think the CBI would be better served starting at this time to open what ever they determine true value is at this point. The 2008 strategic study suggested they could support $1.13 when they were producing only 1.5 MBPD and the reserves were in the low 30 billion range. Alot has changed since then. Even with the present problems in the country I am sure these 2008 numbers no longer apply. tlar Did I mention rate? Serotonin I still believe the reality rate will be north of $3.00. I have many friends who are still waiting to be bought out between $3 and $4. There dinars are deposited with a major bank who is acting as an agent for the Chinese. They have agreed to an automatic sell between these rates. It will be messy for the institution if it is less than $3 requiring a phone call to work out a new price. So for them to promise the $3-$4 range, someone has had to of had a heads up on the rate otherwise a major bank in the US would be stupid to get envolved. So thats why I still think between $3-$4 is a good number. The guy who convinced this bank to do this is either the worlds greatest saleman or has some pretty convincing proof or a lot of monetary pull. Tlar

    IT'S GREAT THAT THE ARTICLE MENTIONS THESE LAWS, WHICH WE CAN SEE ARE ALREADY CONSIDERED ACTIVE IN THE GAZETTE - I BELIEVE WHAT THE ARTICLE IS TRULY MEANING, IS THAT WE NEED TO SEE APPLICATION OF THESE LAWS AND THAT CONDITIONS NEED TO BE DEVELOPED IN ORDER TO APPLY THESE LAWS - WE STILL (OBVIOUSLY) NEED THE PRIVATE SECTOR MUCH MORE DEVELOPED - AND JOB CREATION - AS BUTI SAYS, "THESE PEOPLE HAVE GOT TO HAVE SOME BUYING POWER" - THEY SAY THEY'VE ALREADY INSTATED THE TAXATION/TARIFF'S IF THAT'S TRUE..HOW ARE THESE PEOPLE GOING TO AFFORD TO PAY THESE TARIFF'S? IF THEY'RE NOT GOING TO ASSIGN VALUE TO THE CURRENCY SOON, THEN THEY HAVE TO FIND A WAY TO GET IRAQI'S MORE MONIES - SO, ARE THEY TRULY AWAITING PRIVATE SECTOR DEVELOPMENT ALONE TO DO THIS? IDK. Parliamentary Energy calls on the government to calculate the price of a barrel to $ 50 in 2015 budget Author: Editor: mw reporter: naNumber of Views: 165 12/21/2014 19:58 Counting Press / BAGHDAD: A member of the Parliamentary Commission on oil and energy, MP Ibrahim Bahr al-Ulum, Sunday, that in light of the continuing decline in the sale of crude oil is difficult to predict to prices, calling on the government to calculate the price per barrel in the budget of $ 50. Uloum said for "tomorrow Press", "The decline in the price per barrel in the oil market led to the difficulty of estimating the price of oil and possibly cracking even under $ fifty," pointing out that "the fundamental role played by OAPEC in determining the production, pricing and production of source countries for oil." . He added that, "the former planning of the budget at the level of 64 and 65 dollars a barrel of oil has become irrational, despite our belief that prices will recover perhaps after the middle of next year", stressing the need to "be planning on a reasonable and well thought out prices to avoid a lot of mistakes." Bahr al-Ulum said that "the supposed price placed on the basis of the budget by the current atmosphere is fifty dollars per barrel, and that there have been changes in pricing next year there could be estimated budget offset by the budget." He continued that "the maximum production and export of oil in Iraq do not exceed more than three million and two hundred or three million, five hundred daily barrels per day maximum, harbor necessary to search for revenue assistance for the advancement of the Iraqi economy," explaining that "a lot of the provinces have the potential to run sectors a second non-oil agro-industrial and private.

    So, dontlop and eburt, don't read it. That should be simple enough for you. It said in the beginning who wrote it. No surprise there. You're not in school here. It's not required reading. You can skip it. This is for dontlop only. I've been trying to figure you out for a long time. I think I finally got most of it. First off, I think you're pretty smart when it comes to money and this investment. After that it kinda goes downhill. You seem to hate everyone for no particular reason, even those who say decent things to you. Makes me think you probably don't like yourself much either. One or both of your parents probably abused and/or beat you. You want people to think you have no feelings and don't care about anything but if that was really true you wouldn't respond to every little comment. You don't have a clue how to make a sentence. You are enamored with the "Enter" key and terrified of the "Shift" key. One of the cheesiest things you do is belittle people to try to make yourself look better. I've been told that I'm a negative person but I've got nothing on you. At least I'm nice sometimes. You don't always have to be a Richard. Get your mind out of the gutter...........................................so mine can float by. Since I'm sure you're going to try to return my post with a scathing attack, I will give you my answer in advance. I know you are but what am I.

    The reason why the budget is important is because we're looking for unification and stability. Those two things are the only things we know for sure are required for a rate increase. A budget, representative of all factions, Sunni, Shia and Kurd would be a step in this direction. Sure there's no rate in the budget. The budget, however, is the next step in the path of forward movement and we're pretty much sitting here just marking time until they get it done.

    Man they are just doing as this GOVT is telling them its ok to do. When your in real trouble Who ya going to call.? It aint the ghost busters thats for sure. I lived very recklessly as a youth. I have been hassled by the police I have been beaten by the police. Do I hate the police. Why hell no I . I deserved it. I was a hellion that had to be put in my place before I did real harm. I grew up and thank god those cops help me do it. Prayers out to those families in their time of loss. Their Christmas has now been turned in to the worst nightmare. Way to go Berry, Holder, sharpton, the good mayor of NYC, and all the others who fanned the flames of hatred across our nation. YOU own this.

    Each week you wrestle with the words the writer uses to inform you about what has taken place during the preceding 7days. So, as we are reaching a climax of the decade or so that the RV/GCR has been in train, we are including here the words of a lawyer who has battled for some 10 years and won. 12-19-14 Al Hodges: Most of the high-level and medium-level people, both in and out of government, have either been “wood-shedded” (the instruction that is given to a witness in order to make him/her respond in one party's favour) and/or arrested, and now face disgrace, loss of financial advantage, loss of position-of-power, loss of official office, and near-term prosecution. In my opinion, having participated in many of the events as they occurred, we are finally at the point of conclusion. While it is very difficult to accept the inordinate amount of time this has taken, I can tell you that the acts involved were categorically required to accomplish the end goals. As a result of now having a fuller understanding of both the end goals, and the progress to date, I will once again stick my neck out to advise you all that your journey is essentially over. My professional opinion is based not only on what I am told each day by those at the top of the New Powers That Be, but more importantly on the status of the imminent Global Currency Reset. Its status is important because it cannot become a public fait accompli without the US Treasury becoming a hard-metal asset-backed issuer of US currency – the very definition of ER. (Economic Recovery – possibly, not sure) Accordingly, when you publicly see the Global Currency Reset you will know that we have an asset-backed currency, and you will know that we have received ER. Every indication from every credible source is that the Reset will become public today, tomorrow, the next day, or certainly by January 1, 2015; most probably before Christmas. I do not and cannot guarantee this of course; but it does represent my professional opinion based on all available information. I can assure you that the impact of what you are so soon to experience will mightily shatter any doubt, disbelief, bitter humour, or unhappy memories that this journey may have encouraged and supported.As I have said in the past, “you will be paid a great deal more than any have the right to expect [based on the amount of your investment]. Al Hodges - Pasadena Attorney Al Hodges was hired by shareholders of CMKX Diamonds to represent them in what has been said to be “the largest fraud case in world history.” So he is well connected.

    Another way to look at it is that we all have a chance to make a little money off our speculation. You could be sitting there with no dinar and it could gain and then you would be upset you didnt have any. Be glad your vested with some currencies, who knows really whats going to transpire... Keep clear of the obvious nuts that want you to pray about getting filthy rich while their pumping more and more dinar at you.Try and relax about it all. Take a few deep breaths if you are truly that frustrated.

    Saudi Arabia Reportedly Passes Law to Execute “Bible Smugglers” Dean Garrison December 19, 2014 27 Comments As recently admitted to by a former CIA employee, Barack Obama is a radical Islamic enemy of America. So for him to bow to a Saudi King or to continue to support one of the most oppressive and fundamentally Islamic regimes on the planet is no surprise. Now, it would seem that Saudi Arabia is no longer satisfied with simply jailing Christians for the humble act of praying in private. Suddenly the dangerous act of "smuggling" (also known as sharing) a Bible may be punishable by death. Smuggling? Really? Smuggling is typically a term used with weapons, drugs, and other potentially dangerous contraband. In a free society, which Saudi Arabia is not, you can't really consider a Bible to be contraband, can you? Look around folks… It is not just Saudi Arabia. The Bible is considered to be dangerous contraband in many countries. I think it is also important to mention that it is not just Barack Obama that bows to these barbarians. Both he and his predecessor are guilty of catering to this regime of pure Islamic hatred. Heather Clark of Christian News reports: Recent reports state that officials in the Islamic country of Saudi Arabia have passed a law that may impose the death penalty on Bible smugglers and any others distributing religious materials that are not of the Muslim religion. "[T]he new law extends to the importing of all illegal drugs and 'all publications that have a prejudice to any other religious beliefs other than Islam,'" Paul Washer's HeartCry Missionary Society outlines in a post on their website. "In other words, anyone who attempts to bring Bibles or gospel literature into the country will have all materials confiscated and be imprisoned and sentenced to death." It points to an article on the Copts Today website, which notes that "indecent materials and publications" are also included in the customs prohibitionReporters have attempted to obtain confirmation of the report from Saudi Arabia's U.S. Embassy press officer in Washington, but the information has been neither confirmed nor denied. Of course, they won't confirm or deny it. They won't confirm the content of 28 redacted pages from the 9/11 report, either. Leaks have revealed that those 28 pages talk about Saudi Arabia being a state sponsor of the attacks. Representatives in D.C. have called for the truth of these pages to be revealed to the American people, but it will never happen. How d How does it make you feel that your President wouldbow to a man who may have been involved in the terrorist execution of over 3000 Americans? How does it make you feel that George "Dubya" Bush was armed with the same intelligence and chose to ignore it? So is Saudi Arabia really going to start executing Bible smugglers? Without confirmation from our "oh so reliable," embassy we cannot know for sure. It's not like the sharia-compliant corporate media is going to cover this story. But would it surprise you if the story is true? If it would, then you simply don't know the truth of Islam. Make no mistake. There is a war against Christianity being fought worldwide, and our usurping Muslim-in-Chief is leading the charge.

    All right, I am just NOT understanding this deluge of hopium. MAYBE, I'm missing something - or is everybody else just ignoring this HUGE, HUGE obstacle sitting there on their nose: If Iraq is just "days away" from the RV, and an RV would allow them to use currently useless currency to buy craploads of foreign products and increase their worldly wealth...... WHY WOULD THEY NEED A LOAN FOR A MEASLY $5 BILLION FROM THE WORLD BANK, AND WHY WOULD THEY NEED TO PUT OFF PAYING KUWAIT A MEASLY $5 BILLION FOR TWO YEARS? sorry for the caps, but i haven't seen anyone answering this, let alone asking the question. Seriously - think about it. If their currency is going to increase to even a DIME, they could not POSSIBLY have a need for this ten billion. They could pay off Kuwait in a heartbeat. Heck, they could pay them in current dinar with a note on the box that said "do not open until January 1st (or even March 1st)". They alone should be able to weather this oil change crisis better than anyone with an RV. Anyone else thinking this?

    I get such a kick out of some of the liberals that scream Christmas isn't a religious holiday (even though it is specifically a celebration of the birth of Christ, whether you like it or not) or Easter (celebration of Christ rising from the dead) I for one could give a rat's rear if the dates are exact or not, it's irrelevant! We are celebrating what we believe. It doesn't make a difference if Jesus wanted his birthday celebrated or ever told us to celebrate it on Christmas in the Bible, what matters, and the only thing that matters is, those of us who believe in him and follow his ways, come together with friends and family to celebrate the fact that we believe in him, and we believe this day (whether exact or not) was the day of his birth and are giving thanks, praise, and remembrance on this HOLY day, not to mention the good deeds, giving, and caring for others that goes on during this time period in his honor, so why is this such a bad thing for all the haters out there? Why is this such a threat? You have the crowd that wants to call it Happy Holiday or Spring Festival, blah, blah, blah, all complete BS!!! If you don't believe and celebrate them for what they are supposed to be, then go back to work on those days. No holiday pay, no days off work, and no whining! Can't have it both ways, sorry. If our government wants to take GOD out of our lives, they can all get their @$$es back to work during these holidays! Jesus is the reason for the season! Merry Christmas Gang!!!
