  1. I received the email today, Sat. Nov. 22.
  2. This quote is a part of an email I received from Kim Clement. I am in no way saying it is true, but just found it interesting. "I will also show you a prophetic statement that I spoke recently about the Dow at 20,000 points. All of this connects to a massive breakthrough with regard to the DINAR."
  3. At work so I have to make this quick. I trust my attorney, but did not trust the client who wanted to buy. Like I said, my attorney knows nothing about Dinar. When our group started asking questions he could answer, I asked if I could speak with his client. We were around a conference table and my attorney put him on speaker phone. He (the buyer) told us he was buying up Dinar from the public for a government. When I asked "which government", he would not say. Sounded fishy so we all decided to not turn over our Dinar. I know it sounds weird, but this did happen.
  4. I am going to share something that happened to me about two months ago. My attorney, who knew I owned IQD, called me. I want to point out he owns no dinar and really knows little about it. He told me he had a client who was willing to pay $.50 to $1.00 for each of my dinar. He said if I knew others with Dinar they could take advantage of the offer as well. My son, who owns dinar, and I were estatic. The attorney said we had to be in his office before 5:00 to take advantage of it. We called our small group of friends who also are invested and we all, eight of us went to his office. I was under the impression his client was going to be there and pay us on the spot, but he wasn't. My attorney had a document drawn up and we would have to leave our dinar with the attorney and supposively receive a check in 6-8 weeks. We were all uncomfortable with that and none of us did so.I never shared this because I knew I wouldn't be believed and would have been bashed. It was exciting for a while.
  5. I just noticed all the exchange rates are blank except for USD, JPY, CPH and SDR. Probably means nothing, but there is a change this morning.
  6. That makes sense, Frogee! Thanks!
  7. All I can say moneysoon is earlier today the bid rate was 1164 and now it is 1147.3.
  8. I am not doubting anyone's skepticism, but can anyone explain the changes in the exchange rate USD/IQD throughout the day if it is not live? Earlier today the bid price was 1164, now it shows 1147.3. Click on the link and you will see it. The ask price has changed as well.
  9. The CBI website is down this morning......Maybe???
  10. All I know is I shared my bank story that happened to me personally right after invesing in IQD two years ago. I was called a pumper, liar and everything else. I was a newbie and have pretty much kept quiet since. I haven't posted much in two years because if you post something that is first hand knowledge or experience no one believes you anyway. LOL
  11. Iraq's rapidly expanding oil production is likely to complicate OPEC's efforts to influence world prices as the country re-emerges as a major player after 20 years on the sidelines due to sanctions and strife. For now, Iraq is backing Iran's push for OPEC to set lower production limits and keep prices high, but Baghdad's own ambitious plans for expansion could cause an overall production growth that might drive down prices. Analysts say Iraq's new clout is shifting the power balance in the 12-member Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and could force it to overhaul its intricate production quota system to accommodate Baghdad's greater output. Iraq recently reached production of 3 million barrels per day, a level not seen since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion that ousted dictator Saddam Hussein. It is on track to become OPEC's second-largest producer in the coming year, surpassing Iran and trailing only Saudi Arabia. "Iraq, for all intents and purposes, could double its production in next five years, could go from 3 million barrels a day to 6 million barrels a day," said energy analyst Fadel Gheit, managing director of consultancy Oppenheimer & Co. in New York. "No other OPEC country has the ability and capacity to do that." Oil prices are determined by many factors, but chief among them is supply and demand. For decades, OPEC has tried to control oil prices by limiting production. Additional production from Iraq, unless offset by reductions from other cartel members, could drive oil prices down. But OPEC politics are not that straightforward. At Thursday's OPEC meeting in Vienna, Iraq used its newfound influence to side with its political ally, Iran, against Saudi Arabia, which has been increasing output. Iran, hard hit by economic sanctions over its suspect nuclear program, wants members to cut back production to hike prices. OPEC compromised Thursday, deciding to keep its overall production target at the same level. Sharply lower crude oil prices in recent months are spurring calls for production cutbacks within OPEC. The U.S. benchmark sold Friday at just below $85 a barrel, plunging from $110 in February. OPEC Secretary-General Abdullah Al-Badry said Friday that the price could go back to $110 without harming the global economy. Iraq also emphasized its comeback within OPEC by pushing its own candidate for secretary-general. Thamer al-Ghadhban, 67, led Iraq's oil ministry during part of the U.S. occupation and is considered a well-qualified candidate, though politics are likely to tip the balance toward an Ecuadorian nominee when it decides in December. "It reflects the fact that Iraq is saying 'Look guys, it's changed. We're not the permanent problem child of OPEC anymore,'" said Samuel Ciszuk, an analyst with KBC Energy Economics in London. The last time Iraq had this much voice in OPEC, Saddam Hussein was still in power and the country had just fought the 1980-88 war against Iran that killed as many as a million people on both sides. Iran and Iraq were rivals in OPEC then, bickering over who should give up more in the production quotas. Much has changed. Now, Iran's theocratic Shiite Muslim government is one of the major allies of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, who leads a secular but Shiite-dominated coalition. At OPEC this week, Iraq sided with Iran. For now, higher prices are in Baghdad's best interest, since 95 percent of its government revenues come from oil. Iraq's return to petroleum prominence was not supposed to take this long. Before the U.S.-led invasion, officials in President George W. Bush's administration said that the country's oil exports, long hampered by international sanctions, would recover quickly and possibly even pay for the war. Like much in the Iraq war, that didn't work out as planned, and the spiraling violence that followed decimated oil production. In the last year, a rapid expansion of oil production has been a rare positive sign in a troubled democracy still facing spasms of violence. Iraqi oil exports have grown from an average 1.9 million barrels a day average in 2009 to about 2.5 million barrels a day in May. That is about the same level that Iran was exporting last year, but Tehran now exports less than 1.8 million barrels per day now because of American sanctions, U.S. officials estimate. With 143.1 billion barrels of proven oil reserves — the fourth-largest in OPEC — Iraq has plenty of room to grow. Iraq's expansion in coming years could wreak havoc with OPEC's system of production quotas, according to analyst Ciszuk. The organization wavers between individual country quotas and the current system of an overall production limit for all countries, which it decided Thursday to keep at 30 million barrels a day. In recent decades, Iraq's oil hasn't figured in that system because its exports were underperforming. But once it surpasses Iran, OPEC members will likely demand that Iraq rejoin the quota system. With Iraq pumping 3 or 4 million extra barrels a day, other countries would face the choice of either cutting their own quotas to accommodate Iraq or raising the overall production level. Its ambitious expansion goals and contracts with major oil companies such as Exxon Mobil Corp., BP PLC and Royal Dutch Shell PLC depend on pumping more and more oil, so Iraq's own self-interest in coming years is likely to reverse its stance of pushing for production cuts — despite its political relationship with Iran. "In the end, you know, it tends to be the money that decides a lot of these things," Ciszuk said. Read more:'>
  12. BAGHDAD -- Interpol called for the arrest of fugitive Iraqi Vice President Tariq al-Hashemi at the request of Iraqi authorities on Tuesday on suspicion of planning attacks, a move likely to complicate attempts to defuse Iraq's political crisis.
  13. A number of years ago we lived in a bi level home. The back door opened to a small porch with about ten stairs to the back yard. We had a dog and his chain was connected to the bottom of the stairs.We would leave the end of the chain at the top of the stairs so we could just open the door, hook the dog's collar to the chain and then he would go down the stairs into the yard to take care of business. One Sat. morning I got up and as was my custom I opened the door to let the dog out. I didn't know there had been an ice storm during the night. I walked out onto the porch in my slippers and nothing but my bath robe on. As soon as I stepped onto the porch my feet slipped out from underneath me and I tumbled down the stairs. There I lay at the bottom of the stairs with my bath robe over my head exposed to my neighbors. I was so stunned I couldn't move for a few seconds even though my nakedness was exposed to all the neighbors. I never heard if anyone saw, but for some time I sort of dodged my neighbors. LOL
