    The truth is coming out slowly, but steadily. It was not just the president who was behind the scheme, but his actions beginning in Libya were the foundation of creating this tool. He had many "allies", and that includes the usual suspects, central banks and the central planners who profit. We must go back a few decades, to the late 1970's when the ground work was laid, and our intelligence services were communicating to various groups, and setting the ground work for years down the road, to the present. The greatest threat to all of us, is not the rebels, not 'isis', it is those who write the plan and create the enemy, we must NEVER overlook this or we ALL lose. This tactic has been going on for thousands of years, because it works. Thank you for the article.

    Holy moly, everyone... I have to apologize. For the first time since the Mayflower crossed the ocean blue, I completely forgot it was Wednesday today. Please accept my sincerest apologies. Many of you are avid supporters and amazing parts of this community, and I appreciate all of you. One of the most important things on my weekly "to-do" list is the Wednesday update. In my defense, my first flight today was delayed 2 hours, I sat in traffic in a major latin american country this morning for about an hour, and I've been playing charades with the locals for over a week now... the only spanish I really know is "donde esta el bano" and "uno mas cervesa por favor". Instead of doing my normal weekly research on the dinar, I spent the week hopping around the world verifying some things on asset protection and banking... I'll be sharing that in the VIP section tonight or tomorrow. And now before I miss YET ANOTHER flight, I have to boogie! Keep it classy! I'll talk to you soon

    U.S. intelligence documents released to a government watchdog confirms the suspicions that the United States and some of its so-called coalition partners had actually facilitated the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) as an effective adversary against the government of the Syrian dictator President Bashar al-Assad. In addition, ISIS members were initially trained by members and contractors of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) at facilities in Jordan in 2012. The original goal was to weaken the Syrian government which had engaged in war crimes against their own people, according to a number of reports on Sunday. Courtesy of the Homeland Security Newswire The non-profit, non-partisan Judicial Watch -- a group known for its investigation of government corruption and abuse -- had obtained more than 100 pages of classified documents from both the US Department of Defense and the State Department through a federal lawsuit. One of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) documents declared that President Barack Obama and his counterparts within the coalition considered the establishment of a Salafist organization in eastern Syria in order to further downfall of the Assad regime. “And this is exactly what the supporting powers to the (Syrian) opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime,” said the DIA report, which had been formerly classified until its release. Salafists are radical Sunnis and an offshoot of the Saudi's Wahhabi sect. The contents of that document had been promulgated by the Obama administration to the U.S. Central Command (CENCOM), Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and its directorates, as well as to the State Department and many other related agencies. Military intelligence officials had also warned that any further damage caused by the Syrian civil war might have an adverse effect on the fragile government in neighboring Iraq. The intelligence analysis predicted that such a situation could lead to al-Qaida in Iraq (AQII) returning especially in the Iraqi cities of Mosul and Ramadi. The DIA report also predicted that ISIS would declare a caliphate through its affiliation with other terrorist organizations in Iraq and Syria, including members of what the Obama administration terms "core al-Qaida" to differentiate it from offshoots such as al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula. The now declassified document appears to confirm that the U.S., the European Union and other nations viewed Muslim extremists in ISIS as "a strategic asset toward regime change in Syria." As a result parts of Iraq have been in chaos since ISIS began to cross the Syrian border in early June 2014. The documents obtained by Judicial Watch also provide the first official documentation that the Obama administration was well aware that weapons were being shipped from Benghazi to rebel troops -- including members from ISIS, the Al-Nusra Front and other Islamist terror groups -- in Syria. An October 2012 report confirms thatr: "Weapons from the former Libya military stockpiles were shipped from the port of Benghazi, Libya to the Port of Banias and the Port of Borj Islam, Syria. The weapons shipped during late-August 2012 were Sniper rifles, RPG’s, and 125 mm and 155mm howitzers missiles." The deadly and shocking attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission that saw four Americans -- including a U.S. ambassador -- slaughtered by jihadists occurred just weeks after the weapons shipment. Following the downfall and killing of Gaddafi in October 2011 until almost a year later in September 2012, the desolved Libyan military's weapons were stockpiled in Benghazi, Libya. According to the intelligence report, they were shipped from the port of Benghazi, Libya, to the ports located in Syria. The ships used to transport the weapons were medium-sized and able to hold 10 or less shipping containers of cargo, according to the documents obtained by Judicial Watch.

    There are other topics I would love to comment on, but just do not have the time today, and must prioritize. Here is a brief synopsis of the TPP,(Trans Pacific Partnership) In short, it will pull what few teeth congress has left, leaving all decisions to an international governing body. The UN has never officially recognized the American Constitution as a valid document, and has been consistently undermining American laws since it's creation by the CFR. With the TPP , we could be forced to allow anyone to come to America, literally open the borders, if the illegals are considered labor, because anything related to trade will be controlled by others. It is a major step in the elites desired single global control of this planet. Within a few short years America could be transformed to resemble Detroit from coast to coast. The ultra-wealthy will be in full, control of everything, the middle class gone, food shortages, starvation, poor or no health care, power shortages, and more. This is without doubt one of the biggest issues we have faced as a nation in this generation. The last generation took on the Nazi's in WWII. Globalization is our cross to bear. By the time there is actual fighting in the streets, it will be against the gangs of thugs preying on whoever is left to scrape out a living in the dead lands formerly known as America. Some of you may have large amounts of food stored, along with a few thousand rounds, but will that be enough to last the rest of your life? It is time to pull together as Americans. The left and right in DC are in fact plotting against us, and if we let this go we can not expect even our own military to help defend us. Because their orders will be to arrest the Americans creating the civil unrest, and to force us to comply with the international law that will be the new law of our land. It is time to speak out now, or accept your slavery forever.....JMHO......DM Examining Trans Pacific Partnership On Constitution Radio with Douglas V. Gibbs on May 23, 2015, over KMET 1490AM, the topic of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) free trade agreement moseyed its way into the arena of discussion. During the conversation a rare instance in the many year history of the radio program, and on the Political Pistachio blogsite for that matter, emerged where JASmius (my longtime co-host, staff writer, and dear friend) and I disagreed. While I indicated I felt that the deal is potentially a dangerous one, and I am against Republican support of the Obama supported trade agreement, JASmius stated he supported the spread of capitalism, and that is what the TPP agreement accomplishes. I responded that I support free trade, but not when it puts the United States, and more specifically “American sovereignty,” at a disadvantage. I added that the secretive nature of this agreement threw up red flags for me as well. In an examination of what little information is available regarding this “behind-closed-doors” consensus of international political elites, the potentiality of the TPP free trade treaty being a disadvantage for American interests is alarming. The agreement will facilitate the creation of global economic integration that will empower globalistic schemes, and place American interests at risk. At first blush, the agreement caters to those that wish to annihilate national sovereignty, hindering America’s position on the global economic stage while redistributing the wealth of nations to other countries that may not be so far up on the world-stage ladder, while positioning global economics into a position to better enable internationalists to ultimately push aside domestic individuality while moving the planet closer to a one world model that can be more easily controlled by a worldwide centralized governing authority. While on the surface, the Trans Pacific Partnership claims to be about free trade, it has little to do with trade, and is more about moving chess pieces around for those that have global aspirations. The United States, in this agreement, joins 12 countries that includes Canada and Mexico, two countries we already have three-quarters of our foreign trade with - and of which is already covered by NAFTA (which has also been proving to be disastrous due to the agreement having similar globalistic provisions that places the United States at a disadvantage). Growth exports are already covered by NAFTA, so while the TPP agreement is being heralded as a trade agreement, it actually has no significant relevance to our trade relations, or at least not in a manner that improves our position in relation from NAFTA. The TPP agreement is not designed to grow trade because instead it is constructed in a manner designed to carry on, and double-down, on the destructive policies already in place because of the Obama administration. Don’t be fooled, though. Obama is not the only one behind this kind of thinking. Those tyrannical policies are also championed by the Democrats, and a number of Republicans who think it may serve them well in the future. What TPP does, however, is take those policies out of the hands of the elitists in the American System, and then transfers all of these oligarchical aspirations to international whims and governance. The statists in the federal government have been working to centralize power, and strip Congress of its constitutional authorities, since the nationalists around people like Alexander Hamilton and John Marshall began to take actions to circumvent the United States Constitution. Under Barack Obama, however, we have witnessed an increased irrelevance of the United States Congress and a massive drive to complete the process of reducing the Constitution to nothing more than some forgotten, antiquated document that the liberal left claims was designed for the purposes of oppression, anyway. Mr. Obama has repeatedly said he will make sure his policies are enacted, “with or without Congress.” He has threatened to make agreements with Iran, and agreements regarding global environmental concerns, without the constitutional requirement of ratification from the U.S. Senate. The representation of We the People is an obstacle to the statist left’s aspirations, and therefore Congressional involvement with the growth of a centralized authority maintained by a ruling elite must be eliminated. . . and TPP accomplishes just that when it comes to trade with other nations. Under TPP, congressional oversight is largely removed, with a host of items through the agreement being transferred from the control of the U.S. Congress and the several State legislatures to international agencies and international trade courts. To make sure the agreement is slammed into place, Obama is also using another mechanism that will allow the executive to bypass Congress called “Fast-Track.” The realities regarding the Trans Pacific Partnership are shocking, placing more power over our trade into the hands of international overseers, and that is the reason for the secretive nature of the negotiations, and the release of little information about the agreement itself. Like the Affordable Care Act, few know what is in the agreement, and whatever questions do arise regarding America’s role in the agreement will not be offered to be approved or resolved by American legislatures, but will be handed over to international trade courts to sort out, interpret, redefine, and control the language and overall application of the agreement. The international courts can decide any way they want, and there is nothing, under TPP, the American People, the United States Congress, or the individual States can do about it. This will, once the stage is set, allow players that stand against the United States to manipulate the provisions of the agreement,specifically giving China the opportunity to further erode America’s standing in international trade, and in the global economic picture. The TPP also nullifies any American regulatory control regarding access to our part of the global market, disallowing restrictions that federal or State laws may place on the types of goods moving through the market such as restrictions American law has in place regarding genetically modified foods. Under the TPP, the international courts would also have the ability to impose limitations on congressional say regarding the “free flow of labor” that is already crossing the border illegally at will. Any attempts to slow down the flow of illegal immigration by the United States can be stopped by international courts (international panel of arbitrators), in line with the provisions of TPP. TPP also enables the international courts to enforce against Congress the international requirement (as per TPP) to impose environmental policies, and sustainable development policies, even if Congress refuses to accept these internationally mandated intrusions upon American sovereignty. From a constitutional point of view, what this does is surrender to international interests congressional responsibility under Section 1, Article 8 of the Constitution that grants to Congress the power to regulate commerce with foreign nations. In short, the agreement places international demands, and decisions decided by On the political front inside the United States, the Obama administration has been working feverishly to centralize authority, and make Congress nothing more than a consultative assembly that can complain, but do nothing, about his executive actions. The onslaught of tyranny against the people, against their representation in Congress, and against the sovereignty of the States, has been moving at full-throttle under this administration. Despite their efforts, however, the White House has failed to force America to fully embrace leftist policies regarding various economic authorities, immigration, environmental policies, and the social issues. So, having failed to accomplish what they want using unconstitutional federal strong-arming, Obama is left no choice but to retreat to the stronghold of the international community, using international agreements to force Congress, and the States, into compliance with his leftist agenda. The move is no surprise. Obama has repeatedly shown that he holds international opinion above American interests and American constitutional authorities. Obama, and his minions, have global aspirations. The centralization of power into the executive branch is not the end-goal. International rule, where wealth is redistributed in a global manner, and the individual sovereignty of nations is only a faint memory, is the long-term objective of the global ruling elites. It is a worldwide manifestation of Jean Jacque Rousseau’s “General Will” and drive for an “Ordered Society,” where the will of the people is presumed not to be understood by the populace, but only by the ruling elite, and those that dare to oppose the laws put in place for the common good by the ruling elite must be restrained by the body politic. . . because “man must be forced to be free.” In Washington, D.C., the system is no longer based on the constitutional construct that birthed our system. The servants have become a ruling elite, a machine with bureaucrats and staffers that use threats and the selling of favors to accomplish the oligarchical desires of vicious masters. Economies are manipulated by the press of a button, and the future of American liberty is being extinguished by backroom deals. The Founding Fathers feared concepts steeped in the centralization of government residing in the hands of a powerful few. They recognized these kinds of schemes would subject all voluntary associations to government regulation, controlling the people in the name of the common good as interpreted by a ruling elite. Such a system would lead to the end of individual liberty, the end of the free market, and the end of the prosperity and sovereignty of the United States. The political romanticism of a global utopia can only be pursued by eliminating individualism, be it the individualism and exceptionalism enjoyed by people, States, or the United States of America as a whole. If the internationalists get what they want through TPP, the power of the international courts will become the dominant force in trade, special interests, political characters, and multinational corporations will find a way to manipulate the international courts to rule in their favor. When power is centralized, the individuals wielding that power can be easily bought and influenced. The apolitical, or impartial, men of the international courts will then become no different than the bought and paid for justices in our own federal court system, swayed by political favors, and a tyrannical ideology that will afford them even more power if they simply obey the demands of the most powerful statists over them. Thomas Jefferson, based on his understanding of history, taught that the closer the government is to the people, the more likely it is to be the servant, rather than the master. When government is centralized, and placed farther away from the people (be it Washington D.C., or an international body) it is inevitable that despotism will be the consequence. As the old saying goes, “Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely.” On the surface, the TPP is being sold as a wonderful thing, an agreement that will better America’s position in the global scheme of things, but we must remember, darkness always reveals itself as an angel of light. Knowing this, especially when there is a secretive component to a political endeavor such as the Trans Pacific Partnership, we must always ask for the details. We need to be asking “why?”, and demand that the sovereignty of the States and the representation of the people (along with a variety of checks and balances against absolute power) remain in place, and be protected. TPP places a concentration of power into a small number of hands, and all too frequently in history, when that happens, the mentality of tyrants takes control. The most confusing part of all of this is that while this international agreement called the Trans Pacific Partnership is being engineered with international interests at the top of the autocratic pile, while placing American sovereignty at a disadvantage, the Republicans, a number of them usually in tune with conservative values and constitutional intentions, have suddenly been fooled so easily by it. Was not Barack Obama’s position on this dangerous agreement enough to throw up some red flags? Has he bought them off? Are they suddenly eager to give in to centralized power? Are the Republicans, who have complained about the Obama administration’s seizure of power on other issues, and the consolidation of power we are seeing into the executive branch, suddenly willing to hand over more power to him, and international courts, through TPP? TPP allows the President of the United States to negotiate anything that falls under the TPP (which can be interpreted to mean anything) through the provision called “fast-track authority.” Obama, under this agreement, can negotiate anything he wants. Never mind treaties that at least require Senatorial ratification. With TPP, “fast track” gives Congress no way to stop a power-hungry president, or tyrannical international agencies, from ripping up and tossing aside the philosophies and principles of the United States Constitution that have served as the rule of law in the United States, and has led this nation to prosperity under those principles. TPP creates an expansive global power that is managed by a powerful few, and dismisses American interests, American sovereignty, and American exceptionalism. If the expansion of capitalism on the world stage requires the United States to become a small speck of controlled dust in an ever-expansive global authority, never mind. You can keep it.

    Baghdad: Iraqi forces have Ramadi 'surrounded'By Rudaw 6 hours ago The center of Ramadi under ISIS control. Rudaw photo ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – The Iraqi Defense Ministry has issued a statement claiming Iraqi joint forces have besieged ISIS militants in Ramadi, cutting off supplies and reinforcements from other extremist-held areas in Anbar province. “Our intelligence information shows that ISIS can no longer receive military assistance in Ramadi and Iraqi forces have surrounded the city in all directions,” Qais Al-Robai, media officer of the ministry, told reporters in Baghdad on Wednesday. A security official also told Rudaw on Wednesday that an estimated 17 ISIS militants were killed in Ramadi by Iraqi fighter jets. ISIS took control of Ramadi, capital of Anbar province, on May 17, raising their black flag over the governor's compound and setting it ablaze hours later. The retreat of the Iraqi forces recalled the collapse of Iraqi police and military forces last summer, when the Islamic State group's initial blitz into Iraq saw it capture about one-third of the country.

    Temptation ​ ​An old country preacher had a teenage son, and it was getting time the boy should give some thought to choosing a profession. Like many young men his age, the boy didn't really know what he wanted to do, and he didn't seem too concerned about it. One day, while the boy was away at school, his father decided to try an experiment. He went into the boy's room and placed on his study table four objects: 1. A Bible; 2. A silver dollar; 3.​A bottle of whiskey 4. A Playboy magazine "I'll just hide behind the door," the old preacher said to himself. "When he comes home from school today, I'll see which object he picks up." "If it's the Bible, he's going to be a preacher like me, and what a blessing that would be! "If he picks up the dollar, he's going to be a business man, and that would be okay, too. “But if he picks up the bottle, he's going to be a no-good drunken bum, and Lord, what a shame that would be. "And worst of all if he picks up that magazine he's going to be a skirt-chasing womanizer." The old man waited anxiously, and soon heard his son's footsteps as he entered the house whistling and headed for his room. The boy tossed his books on the bed, and as he turned to leave the room he spotted the objects on the table. With curiosity in his eye, he walked over to inspect them. Finally, he picked up the Bible and placed it under his arm. He picked up the silver dollar and dropped into his pocket. He uncorked the bottle and took a big drink, while he admired the magazine's centerfold. "Lord have mercy on us all,” the old preacher whispered. "He's gonna be a politician."

    BOOM! Clinton Foundation Hit with Racketeering Lawsuit May 27, 2015 By Colleen Conley Bill and Hillarious Clinton and the Clinton Foundation have been hit with a racketeering lawsuit in US District Court. According to the Washington Examiner, the lawsuit, filed by Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch, includes a legal request to have the judge seize the private server which Hillarious Clinton used exclusively while she served as Secretary of State. The racketeering, influenced and corrupt organizations (RICO), case alleges the former first couple used the Clinton Foundation to trade political favors for donations or generous speaking fees for Bill Clinton while Hillarious was head of the State Department. Said Klayman in the US District Court of Southern Florida: “Negotiations by email about influencing U.S. foreign policy or U.S. Government actions to benefit donors to … The Clinton Foundation or sponsors of speaking engagements would not be captured on a U.S. Government email account because her emails would not be with a U.S. Government official.” “Hillarious Clinton deleted 32,000 email messages from her email server that included her communications arranging, negotiating, and agreeing upon speaking engagements by Bill Clinton in return for large speaking fees and donations to The Clinton Foundation.” Klayman also asked the judge to order a “neutral forensic expert … to take custody and control of the private email server and reconstruct and preserve the official U.S. Government records relating to the conduct of U.S. foreign policy during Defendant Secretary Clinton’s term as Secretary of State.” Hillarious Clinton handed over 55,000 printed pages of emails to the State Department in November of last year and reportedly erased the remaining records off her private server. Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) of the House Select Benghazi Committee discovered the private server while investigating the events surrounding the 2012 attack on the Libyan compound in which four Americans were killed. Klayman listed myriad scandals involving missing records that have dogged the Clintons for two decades, including the fact that thousands of emails disappeared during Bill Clinton’s administration after White House officials threatened internal computer experts who blew the whistle on the “suppression.” In court documents, Klayman said records on the Clintons’ private server are “in imminent danger of being lost” and urged the court to intervene. Since our Congress has failed to ensure the integrity of the email server, Klayman stated that “somebody has to do it.” Let’s hope this case has legs and the Clintons don’t squeak by with yet another crime committed against the people of the United States.

    It is my understading that in the USA the vasy majority of inmates are in for non-viloent crimes.... I recenlty heard that there are hundereds of people there for shoplifting 3 times (third strike) Many Fathers in jail for unpaid child support... It' easy to assume that these fellows are bums but in many cases the court demands extreamly unreasonable amounts from fathers and when unable to pay they go to jail. The FBI has been caught recently in that over 80% of their testomony on 'hair analysis' was fradulent and in tims past the same for their ballistics analysis. To lay a blanked over this and say they desirve this is a bit thick if you ask me! As far as the prision rep saying "these arent the sandwitches you are looking for, move along" without an actual invistigation why would anyone be so nieve as to believe this putz? Is somthing happening.. I don't know... I just wish I lived in a world were more people did not know instead of this BS world where it is so acceptable to just white wash it away as is so common (as I have just witnessed in this thread)

    For starters, Dog, I removed my consent. The Preamble to the Constitution states "thru the consent of the governed.." Well, seems the answer is right there. Remove your consent and jurisdiction fails. Without that, what power does anyone have over you? Can someone tell you what to do if they possess NO factual evidence they have power over you? Again, only the facts. I have never seen this fact outside of my contract I signed when I joined the Marines or was an LEO. Outside of that, when did I agree to anything? Or, we can all do NOTHING and wish for our liberties to be restored. I'm OK with that, but at least I will try. Cheers....

    Yep, JimCor, it is down to a science now. The controllers know what to do to a T. We're the rats in the experiment, so far, the experiment is working-out wonderfully. Just cruise about in this forum and see the ignorance abound. How some people think is really amazing considering the condition the country is in. Others are dye-in-the-wool empire-supporters. The sickness of State-worship must be stopped. I am a Jew, so I have never been in a Christian church, but friends tell me the pastor/leaders enforce this worship to the State and military and uniformed scum (oh, sorry, I meant police), etc often. So even outside of the propaganda thru usual channels (media, education systems), many people are fed the lies in their religious meetings/gatherings. How to counter that force? Like trying to stop a tsunami! Well, all we can hope for are more and more people step out of State-worship, realize their FAMILY is the most important obligation they have and try to live free. Cheers and to everyone's freedom

    NO DM it describes ANYONE who believes in the State and the Party they throw to enslave your mind. This has nothing to do with this party or that. Nothing at all to do with which government party is control of the House or Senate. It is about your slavery and how best to keep the game going. Excellent post here lately and good replies from those not blinded by the system that enslaves you. I was just speaking with a patient from the States. Funny, under a military dictatorship, she feels more "at ease" then with a so-called Constitutional Republic. How is that possible? How is it that people there are under more stress, repression, regulation then an EFFING dictatorship? My god, what has happened? The points listed exactly express the argument of what people think today. Again, the very basic question that needs to be answered is, "What FACTUAL evidence does the State have to prove the Constitution, code, statues or regulations apply to ME?" Where is the contract between the State and me? Show me the contract/agreement. There is NONE. I do not consent to this slavery. I do not consent to follow those rules (which are political policy only) which I didnt agree to. Before you squawk about "citizen", you need to actually look-up the meaning of that word. By definition, it is a 2-way street of MUTUAL obligation. You, as an individual, have NO AUTHORITY over me. This all people can accept. However, by MAGIC, you gain authority over me if a group of people "elect" you to some political position? Explain that one to me. Where is this magic potion called "election"? I need some so I can boss born-free, independent folks around too! Gimme a double, bartender. Permission to do what was given by God, by our merely being born alive? When did that happen? All you 2nd Amendment, so-called supporters: why do you need a license to protect yourself? Why would you even tolerate anyone telling you that a permit is needed for this NATURAL-RIGHT activity? Why not go with a license for free-speech or religion? Arent they the same basic rights? Sorry, DM, stop believing in a difference between the parties. BOTH are STATE-APPROVED vomit. The choice is: chunks or bile..Wow, neither sound yummy to me. Dunno, just saying......Great post Bandit. I wish I could give you more pluses.

    Iraq is Bankrolling ISIL And that’s just one of the country’s economic mistakes. By HOWARD J. SHATZ May 24, 2015 : Last week ISIL took control of the Iraqi city Ramadi and the Syrian city Palmyra, advances that the Iraqi government perversely subsidized. Iraq continues to fund ISIL by continuing salaries to the many Iraqi government employees who live in ISIL-controlled territory. That fact is a reminder of how poorly the country has been governed. ISIL skims the money Iraq continues to pay public employees who live in areas captured and ruled by ISIL. One official estimate holds that it reaps hundreds of millions of dollars each year from this source. That’s money that helps ISIL create hundreds of thousands of refugees, behead or crucify scores if not hundreds of people, murder thousands, create sex-slave markets, destroy irreplaceable archaeological and cultural sites, steal property based on religious affiliation or ethnicity of the owner, use and train child soldiers and otherwise make life miserable for millions of people. The continued gains by ISIL make clear that the group is a major problem. But ISIL is not the only threat to the future well being of the Iraqi people. The country’s backwards economy presents a long-term danger as well. Iraq handing over money to ISIL is just one indication of much broader economic mismanagement. Never mind Iraq’s security disaster; the country has experienced an economic catastrophe after a decade of nearly nonexistent economic reform that featured rapid government hiring with little action to foster a stronger private sector. Rather than trying to shape a modern economy, Iraq’s leaders have chosen to retain an economy that focuses on redistribution of oil revenues. The patronage and political power that go with that redistribution is evident in the explosion of government employment. In 2008, Iraqi government payrolls totaled about 2.3 million people. Oil revenues rose and Iraq tucked the money into more employees, a recurring government expense, even though oil prices are notoriously volatile. And in fact, they fell sharply in late 2008. By 2015, government employment was up to 5 million people—an additional 2.7 million people employed by the government rather than the private sector. The fact that the government has all these dependents puts it in a bind. It could end payments to employees, effectively cutting off money to ISIL. But not only would that create a humanitarian problem, it would give ISIL a propaganda victory. The group could tell the largely–Sunni recipients—the same sect as ISIL—that the largely Shia government in Baghdad – the Shia being a sect ISIL considers apostates—is abandoning them and that ISIL is their only protection. Or the Iraqi government could continue the payments, and thereby fund ISIL’s war effort. But expanding government employment is not Iraq’s only economic failure. In late 2006, Iraq agreed to restructure two state-owned banks that constituted 70 percent of all banking assets in the war-torn country. Effectively bankrupt, the banks were failing to do what any normal bank should do—help fund the private sector. Several months later, the International Monetary Fund noted that the restructuring was to be finished in 2008. Fast forward to March 2015 and an announcement from the IMF: Iraqi officials were “pressing ahead with the restructuring of state-owned banks Rasheed and Rafidain,” the two banks that were to be restructured by 2008. Private banks have emerged, but they are small and lend mostly to trade-related companies. As late as 2013, Rasheed and Rafidain held 70 percent of all Iraqi bank deposits and were likely insolvent, meaning that most private businesses throughout Iraq had—and still have—only limited access to normal business finance. The government’s willful disregard of economic reform can be seen in the country’s ratings in the World Bank and International Finance Corporation’s Doing Business ratings. The ratings provide a useful, although not complete, snapshot of the environment for private business. In 2008, when Iraq had only 2.3 million government employees, it was ranked 141 out of 178 economies. In this year’s rankings, benchmarked to June 2014, just when ISIL was storming Mosul, Iraq ranked 156 out of 189 economies, falling 15 steps. Difficulties in Iraq include starting a business because of all the bureaucratic procedures, getting credit because of the failure to reform the financial sector and trading across borders. This failure to foster expansion of the private sector and with it, private-sector taxes that could support government activities, has left the Iraqi government almost entirely dependent on oil revenues and at the mercy of oil price volatility. Oil export revenues have comprised more than 90 percent of the Iraqi government’s total revenues, which is sustainable as long as exports and prices are rising faster than government spending. But in the past year, the price of a barrel of Brent crude—a global benchmark for oil prices—has fallen from more than $110 in June 2014 to less than $55 at the end of March 2015. By the end of April, it had risen to about $64, still well below last-year’s prices. So in June 2014, Iraq exported about 2.4 million barrels per day and earned almost $7.5 billion that month, but in April 2015 it exported more than 3 million barrels per day—a recent record high—and earned only $4.8 billion. The failure of Iraq to reform its economy is understandable, but inexcusable. First, Iraq had a state-controlled economy for decades before the U.S.-led coalition invasion in 2003. Many political leaders and civil servants had never experienced a market economy. To loosen government bonds on the economy proved a difficult concept to grasp, let alone implement. Second, economics has followed politics in the Iraqi case, and the shape of the political system remained up for grabs throughout this period. In a political competition awash with oil revenues, the most sensible short-term strategy is to use patronage power and government money to hire more government employees and build loyalty. But Iraq is no longer awash in oil revenues, and it is at war. If ISIL is degraded so that it no longer represents a major threat, Iraq’s political leaders will have to embark on political reconciliation among all groups and settle the fundamental question of how the country will be governed, how minority rights will be protected, and how all Iraqis can be made to feel they have a stake in the country. And the oil money will still be there, as will the numerous government officials unfamiliar with the needs and governance of a private sector economy. The former will provide a tempting pool of resources for patronage. The latter, combined with the need for numerous approvals, will create a steady demand for bribes and their opposition to reform laws and regulations, either out of greed because fewer approvals will mean fewer bribes, or out of a sincere belief in government controls. If the international community is concerned about Iraq’s long-term well-being, it will need to uncharacteristically take a long-term perspective toward Iraq to help bring about economic reform. But most of the effort must come from Iraqi leaders, and this may require a new generation with exposure to a modern economy. Relevant steps should include streamlining business regulations and requirements, distributing or sequestering oil revenues based on a technical formula that removes a large share of the political decision-making about such revenues, reducing government payrolls, privatizing state-owned factories and banks and changing the tax system to raise more revenues from people and businesses, thereby making the government more answerable to the country’s citizens. Iraq’s new government has taken small steps with its 2015 budget, but there is much more to do, with potentially high payoff: reform will decrease the country’s dependence on oil and bring about the opportunity for a sustained increase in living standards. There is some thought that oil-dependent countries simply cannot shift too far away from oil dependence. There may be some truth to this, and it may be true for Iraq. On the other hand, even if Iraq’s leaders actually try to reform the economy, fixing these kinds of structural issues will be contentious and politically risky, and therefore extraordinarily difficult. In the meantime, ISIL will continue to enjoy the Iraqi government’s largess.

    GOOD GRIEF !!! Dinarians want to know - WHY is Luigi still posting in the third person? AND even more importantly - WHY does he keep believing any of these gurus could ever have any viable intelligence to know anything about what is happening in the real world other than their made up lies and stories?

    You nailed it Socal, and you will never get an answer to the question about the children, because few care about them, because they are viewed as not important. As long as the value of life continues to decay, this mindset will only grow, and that is very sad. It is always easier to condemn others and kill them, rather than having to look deeper and see how the BS is fed to us daily that fosters this mentality. You are correct, it IS hypocritical, beyond belief. Thanks Socal, always appreciate your thoughts.

    Keep up the good work Bandit. If you read some other topics in this forum, you can still see so many are absolutely blinded to the truth. It is so sad to see adults believing in the utter non-sense espoused by the State-swallow it all-hook-line-and-sinker. Other openly support the State and its revenue-collectors, overseas hit men in uniform, etc. Others cheer the murder/mayhem that happens in their name, but, in fact, it is for the empire. So sad, indeed. Cheers

    Perhaps because you have missed the motive and goal of these rebels, and ISIS is useful to those goals by those who create wars and who profit from them. Until we accept how these matters work, and often have underlying targets from the planners who 'use' the enemy to gain entrance to that target, we will continue to be misinformed by the media and accept whatever they tell us. It is your choice, but it is obvious something other than "war on terror" is going on and to ignore the obvious will continue to cause confusion. Maybe we should ask Bashar Al Assad from Syria what is actually going on within his country, because it is not as reported, and remember WHO it was that assisted in creating ISIS going back to the crime commited in Libya, and we see now the fruit of that crime. I agree with you that one would think we would be able to wipe them out...if not, then we must take a look at the other options, and data available that suggests these 'rebels' are needful.
