  1. REMEMBER, no one really knows what will happen, or when. They're simply stating their opinions based on what they perceive to be happening in Iraq... So, take everything with a grain of salt ... RON MarkZ There are meetings going on with the UN in Iraq (And you know this how..?) as they talk about all the changes as they are looking to change their values....I am hearing phenomenal things about the weekend (in his imagination and from other gurus). Hearing phenomenal things about the possibility of an announcement in Iraq tomorrow. Stay calm...We are all praying its accurate this time. Everything continues to be very positive. Nader From The Mid East Today it seems weird. They stopped all electronic transaction in Iraq. They stopped them all and we don't know why. What's interesting is that the CBI & GOI have been pushing people to use cards and electronic transactions, then they come out and do this to them..! Hopefully a new exchange rate will be revealed soon, prior to resumption..! RON Frank26 [Iraq boots-on-the-ground report] FIREFLY: All of our cards like MasterCard and Visa card and key cards...are suspended all of a sudden...they're saying due to changes in the CBI. Something is going on. And they say they'll be back up in a couple of days...This is all falling together nicely and it seems to be for this weekend. FRANK: If they have reached the budget...and they're going to come out this weekend with it, then it makes sense doesn't it that everything else now has to freeze for the budget to come out with a new exchange rate that will be calculated into your cards, loans, accounts, daily life, your new lower denominated notes...let's see what happens...

RON Pimpy Article: "Iraq and America discuss prospects for bilateral cooperation in the field of oil and energy" Of course we like to hear this...This is where the United States has Iraq by the short and fuzzies...the United States still controls a lot of what Iraq has including the Development Fund which is part of that executive order 13303. Frank26 IMO in these last few days of the budget being finalized they are reformulating the budget for the new exchange rate.

Remember also this would be something that Iraq has never done before. First of all a three year budget and second actually open it officially for projects to reconstruct their country. WOW..!

RON Breitling Question: "Have you seen the Iraqi Parliament take any more action steps that you thought would be required before they actually have an RV?" No. They've done everything they need to do. They did that about a year and a half ago. There is nothing, no laws they can pass, all their banking restricting, them being compliant to the IMF, they're 100% compliant. So it's whenever they want to do it. Literally someone can wake up and hit the switch. That's it. There is no more policy [needed]. Frank26 Article: "Temporarily suspending international financial transactions for MasterCard cards" A PAUSE TO RESUME WITH A DIFFERENT EXCHANGE RATE. (See Clare Below) Clare Article: "The Central Bank disables all electronic payment cards.. and a source of {Euphrates News} explains" Quote: "Master Card and [Suge] have been suspended, including palm cards, pending instructions from the Central Bank," noting that "most of the cards issued in Iraq are suspended due to a change in the central bank's system and may return to work in the next two days."

Militia Man Parliament is likely to vote on the budget law next Saturday. We heard that they were going to possibly do this on the 10th. Then they said they possibly do it on the 17th and then...they moved it to Saturday...the 2023-34 budget is like a chess piece. They're moving them back and forth, back and forth - why? Because they're waiting on something...an exchange rate change. That's what I believe is happening. 💥

  17. I get it. So do YOU, @caddieman, REALLY want to Make America Stupid Again???!!! Like those LOYAL to THEE CROWN OF ENGLAND. Let's review the ACTUAL Grievances noted in The Declaration Of Independence and observe in a Candid Manner how closely YOU, @caddieman, advocate reinstituting the Grievances along with YOUR, @caddieman, MASA MADD Snowflake and Buttercup Idiot Brigade Volunteer Forces Comrades!!! The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world. He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good. He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them. He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only. He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures. He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people. He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within. He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands. He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers. He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries. He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance. He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures. He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power. He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation: For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us: For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States: For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world: For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury: For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies: For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments: For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever. He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us. He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation. He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands. He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions. In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. https://www.archives.gov/founding-docs/declaration-transcript Well, OBVIOUSLY, MASA MADD Snowflake and Buttercup Idiot Brigade Volunteer Forces Comrades ARE TYRANTS like PETULANT SPOILED BRATS!!! Saul Alinsky concisely termed the MASA MADD Snowflake and Buttercup Idiot Brigade Volunteer Forces Comrades as "useful" "idiots" of which YOU, @caddieman, are a Hyperactive Stolid PRACTITIONER!!! The noted Grievances accurately and undeniably note YOUR, @caddieman, intentions!!! Who b yo MASA, @caddieman???!!! YOUR, @caddieman, SLAVE mentality is morally reprehensible while True The United States Of America Patriots LOYAL To The Constitution Of The United States Of America TO INCLUDE THEE Ratified Bill Of Rights WITHOUT regard to ANY ETHNICITY OR RACE DEFY ANY SUBJUGATION TO ANY AUTHORITY OTHER THAN The Constitution Of The United States Of America!!!

  21. For the first time... two private Iraqi banks with assets exceeding two trillion dinars, and "Asiacell" achieving "historic" profits 2023-05-19 // 02:36 Shafaq News / The "Iraq Future" Foundation concerned with economic affairs announced, on Friday, that the assets of the Development Bank and Al-Ahly Bank exceeded the barrier of two trillion Iraqi dinars, and they are the first two Iraqi banks to achieve this achievement. According to a report issued by the institution today, considering that the National Bank is a bank with foreign funds, being owned by the Jordanian (Capital) Bank, the achievement achieved by the Development Bank as a purely Iraqi bank with Iraqi capital crosses the barrier of two trillion dinars, considering that this is a great and important achievement that an Iraqi bank did not achieve previously special. Meanwhile, the same institution stated that Asiacell Telecom Company in Iraq achieved historical profits amounting to more than 100 billion Iraqi dinars in the first quarter of 2023, with a growth rate of 60%. In its second report, the corporation indicated an increase in the net profit growth of Zain Iraq, to reach about 40 billion dinars in the first quarter of 2023, an increase of 800% compared to the first quarter of 2022. Asiacell's profits for the year 2023 are expected to reach 350 billion Iraqi dinars, representing 100% of the company's capital, according to the corporation's report. https://shafaq.com/ar/اقتصـاد/ل-ول-مرة-مصرفان-عراقيان-خاصان-تتخطى-موجوداتهما-تريليوني-دينار-و-اسياسيل-تحقق-ارباحا-تاريخية

  22. So I was thinking about this some more and it occurred to me that just because they're at a "restricted" float now (assuming that's true, though I still haven't been able to verify that the Deputy Prime Minister said that they are per my post at the top of this page 2), that doesn't mean they won't bump it up in the future. It does seem safest for Iraq to first determine if they are able to control the transition from a pegged/fixed rate to a market rate. If they did bump it now to to say just $.10, that's more than a 100X increase - which is a huge change. They're much more likely to be successful in figuring out how to manage the rate when begins to float, if they don't rock the boat any more than necessary. A bump of over 100 times is like a tsunami. So now in hindsight, it maybe wasn't realistic for us to expect them to bump the rate first, before they're confident that they'll be able to control it. So starting the float from where they are right now makes sense and is the best choice, imo. That said, I do think Iraq wants to bump the rate, and significantly. The Iraqi youtuber I follow thinks it will be over US$1 and ultimately back to over US$3. He says Iraq wants their currency higher than the USD, and I can appreciate why they'd want that. I don't know if they'll bump it to US$1+ first thing, it may take them a few bumps to get there (or maybe not), but in thinking about this more, I think that's the best way for them to do it. And Iraq is bringing in investment, and that's hard to do with a currency that's almost worthless. So I think think they're pretty motivated to move this along. The monkey wrench in this is that since the protests 2 years ago, they have been able to stable the fixed rate to the black market rate. I've been in this 12 years, and I don't remember seeing such big differences between those two rates in the first 10 years I've owned dinar. They lost control of the +/-1160 figure they had for years. And now they're still struggling to control it at 1310(which is why they banned the USD). So now I'm thinking (and hoping) that with this USD de-dollarization, soon they'll get control of the rate again with this "restricted" 5% float. And once they feel they are in control of managing that, they'll start letting it change more than 5% and/or maybe gradually let the rate increase from there. And if they can maintain control with those changes, then hopefully they'll give it a nice bump, maybe even US$1+, or at least something significant that we'll want to exchange at least some of our dinar. Anyway, that's my thinking today. jmho

  27. Kurdistan region bets on budget to solve salary crisis Economy / Politics | Today, 20:21 | Kurdistan region bets on the budget to solve its salary crisis » Baghdad News Agency Today (baghdadtoday.news) Baghdad Today - Baghdad Sabah Hassan, a member of the Finance Committee in the Kurdistan Regional Parliament, said on Thursday that the solution to the region's salary crisis depends on the vote on the budget law. Hassan said in an interview with Baghdad Today that "the salary crisis occurred due to the cessation of oil exports of the region and the lack of sufficient financial liquidity." He added that "if the budget is voted on next week, approved and published in the official gazette and sent the share of the region, the crisis of employees' salaries will end permanently, as Kurdistan will receive more than 16 trillion dinars." The Kurdistan region is facing a major financial crisis that makes it unable to pay the salaries of its employees, after the cessation of the export of Kurdistan oil through Turkey, while the region views Baghdad as responsible for providing the salaries of its employees and supporting the region with all its financial needs, after the condition of delivering the region's oil to Baghdad is met.

  28. If having everyone like minded when it comes to the Constitution, crime, liberty, economic growth, safer cities, safer schools, protected borders, honest elections, honest courts, honest DAs and AGs is not what you want then America is not for you. If the Liberal Democrats get their way there won't be any safe spaces for anyone when they finally flip this country to a socialist/communist form of government. It seems all the conspiracy theories for the last 7 years have come true. Not a great track record for Conspiracy deniers is it?

  30. Economist: We are about to embark on a qualitative leap in financial transactions Today 12:25 Economist: We are about to embark on a qualitative leap in financial transactions | Information (almaalomah-me.translate.goog) Information / Baghdad.Economic affairs researcher Hisham al-Baidani said on Friday that Iraq is about to embark on a qualitative leap in the quality of financial transactions, especially with the entry into force of electronic applications in many institutions in order to get rid of the inflation that the country suffers. Al-Baidhani told Al-Maalouma that "Iraq, despite its late entry into the techniques of financial sciences and their applications, but the coming months will witness a wide boom in the applications of electronic financial transactions after decades of traditional monetary circulation."He added that "what happens from electronic transactions is only in implementation of the instructions of the Central Bank of Iraq to publish POS points, which would reduce the monetary mass in the country, which in turn is one of the reasons for rampant inflation." He pointed out that "this step, which will begin in early June, will encourage Iraqis to save the value of their money electronically and start opening bank accounts that may increase the number of currently active accounts, which are estimated at seven million bank accounts."

  36. REMEMBER, no one really knows what will happen, or when. They're simply stating their opinions based on what they perceive to be happening in Iraq... So, take everything with a grain of salt ... RON Kaperoni There's been a lot of talk and a lot of decisions lately to encourage investment. Parliament still hasn't passed any significant legislation including the budget, stalled laws, etc...There are improvements going on in Iraq in they are making progress towards diversifying their economy but all of these steps take time. Hopefully things will continue to improve over the next year or so. Nader From The Mid East We're waiting for the US Treasury for what they're gonna say, what they're gonna do. It's their decision now. Everything has been done by the book. The dollar has been banned... Now everybody can buy dollars now only if you need them. Pimpy Iraq is starting to...stop being a dual currency country. In other words you can't use both US dollars and the dinar. They want to go down to where people can only use the dinar...This...reduces people wanting to go into the black market because the penalties can be very severe...if you want to protect your currency just deal with the Iraqi dinar. It'll grow in value. It'll grow in strength as people exclusively us the dinar. Think supply and demand.

Sounds a lot like the sickos who are brainwashing our youth, (in what started in the universities and now has trickled down to Kindergarten) by teaching them to HATE this country, while rewriting our history and shouting down conservative speakers who comes to campuses to speak or debate, because they don't think like they do. Is that what you are talking about caddieman? Or the way the DOJ and FBI are targeting families who don't want this woke taught to their kids and are labeled domestic terrorists. Perhaps you think the FBI whistleblowers who are testifying as I type this are MAGA freaks because they refuse to get steamrolled by the corruption that has infected today's FBI.
