  1. LOL ... I'm still trying to figure out who he/she/it is calling a troll !!!
  2. Don't even need to have friends in Iraq ... Just go to the IMF website and read the 30 page report ... by the way - NOT one mention of Iraq being released from Chapter 7 within those pages!!! A. Introduction 1. Iraq’s public sector is very large in proportion to the economy. Public spending, at 40 percent of GDP, is among the highest in the region and exceeds most other comparators. Spending cuts introduced from 2014 left the public-sector wage bill untouched, focusing on goods, services, and non-oil investments. The government wage bill is not only the largest component of recurrent spending, but it has also been the most rapidly growing item since 2005. 2. Public expenditures are heavily skewed towards the wage bill and welfare transfers. Spending on goods and services is below the regional average of 3.5 percent of GDP and even further away from the emerging markets average of 5.1 percent of GDP—but public wages stand out, even across MENA comparators. In terms of social spending, Iraq is above the regional average of 3.4 percent of GDP and closer to the emerging markets average of 6.9 percent of GDP—although the validity of these comparisons is somewhat compromised by the wage subsidies received by state owned enterprises which function as partial substitutes for social welfare transfers. 3. The country’s social welfare benefits are poorly targeted and, in the case of public sector pensions, unsustainably generous. By reducing leakage of social assistance cash and quasi-cash benefits to higher income groups, the same fiscal envelope could cover a larger share of poor households and provide more adequate benefit. There is growing pressure for new, fiscally costly schemes, benefiting survivors of war martyrs and people who were imprisoned or otherwise suffered from political persecution. Revising pension parameters would not only reduce the fiscal cost of the public-sector pension scheme, but also improve the system’s equity characteristics. 4. Sustainable growth and social stability hinges on private sector job creation. The outsized public sector, the poorly targeted social transfers, and the declining quality of health and education services negatively impact labor participation and private sector growth. Considering Iraq’s demographics, it is crucial to create high-productivity, private sector jobs at a rate at least reflecting demographic trends. The public sector—and the state, in general—can be a prime promoter of private-sector led growth; currently, however, this is not the case, and the state’s omnipresence hinders rather than aids private sector job creation. NONE of that sounds good or even a reason to RV their currency!!! Further reading proves most of this report is a scathing revue of the way Iraq gives too much away through pensions, or collects too little revenue from too many exemptions ... i.e. corruption is still rampant!!!
  3. Know what they found at Manafort's place - NOTHING !!! Or nothing that was listed on the subpoena - but it didn't stop the FBI from their intimidation tactics and send a message to the public - IF YOU SUPPORT TRUMP - we can raid your house too!!!! The whole thing was staged to show the 'power' of the FBI's illegal search and seizure doctrine!!! They took old documents from files of the old Manafort and Stone lobbying firm and seized bank statements that FBI could have subpoenaed the bank for - but that doesn't create negative press for the President!!! Roger Stone Insights Into Paul Manafort FBI Raid New insights Clinton aides being questioned "FBI by the direction of Robert Mueller kicked down Paul Manafort's door seeking documents they never requested. The reason for this raid is to distract from the fact prosecutors in the southern district of New York are now questioning close associates of Hillarious Clinton and are seeking an interview with Hillarious & Bill Clinton regarding the activities of the Clinton Foundation." Paul Manafort raid might be to distract that justice is about to catch up with the Clintons. This raid was part of the effort to frame President Trump which if the Democrats take Congress in 2018 would use as a phone bases for impeachment. Mr. Stone mentions "the key to President rumps survival is the FISA court declaration at the end of the Obama Administration which indisputable proved that Obama's NSA was illegally surveying up to 30,000 Americans which include Roger Stone, Paul Manafort, Donald Trump... we're he to order prosecutions his tormentors would be defeated"
  4. Not even relevant to Patty's post - unless somehow you think your opinion is the only truth!!! You were called out for your judgemental attacks on the President - NOT for posting a document about the government doing evil things!!!
  5. Wait ... ... that's a double negative -- so they ARE ready?
  7. Let's think about that for a second ... from the 2016 Presidential Election Results for California County Clinton Trump Imperial (102%), 28,467 11,295 Lassen (102%), 7,574 2,224 Los Angeles (112%), 1,893,770 620,285 Monterey (104%), 64,733 26,378 San Diego (138%), 567,243 386,807 San Francisco (114%), 312,443 34,493 San Mateo (111%), 219,580 53,731 Santa Cruz (109%), 85,185 20,158 Solano (111%), 97,159 49,595 Stanislaus (102%), 73,939 72,960 and Yolo (110%) 34,460 13,178 TOTALS 3,384,553 1,291,104 Now if we remove the over % votes from each candidate ... County Clinton Trump Imperial (102%), 27,909 11,074 Lassen (102%), 7,425 2,180 Los Angeles (112%), 1,690,866 553,826 Monterey (104%), 62,243 25,363 San Diego (138%), 411,046 280,295 San Francisco (114%), 274,073 30,257 San Mateo (111%), 197,820 48,406 Santa Cruz (109%), 78,151 18,494 Solano (111%), 87,531 44,680 Stanislaus (102%), 72,489 71,529 and Yolo (110%) 31,327 11,980 TOTALS 2,940,880 1,098,085 Hitlery loses 443,673 votes to Trump`s 193,019 a GAIN of 250,653 votes for Trump !!! Now if we remove the over % votes ONLY from the candidate most likely to have cheated ... County Clinton Trump Imperial (102%), 27,909 11,295 Lassen (102%), 7,425 2,224 Los Angeles (112%), 1,690,866 620,285 Monterey (104%), 62,243 26,378 San Diego (138%), 411,046 386,807 San Francisco (114%), 274,073 34,493 San Mateo (111%), 197,820 53,731 Santa Cruz (109%), 78,151 20,158 Solano (111%), 87,531 49,595 Stanislaus (102%), 72,489 72,960 and Yolo (110%) 31,327 13,178 TOTALS 2,940,880 1,291,104 Hitlery loses 443,673 votes and there's a GAIN of 443,673 votes for Trump !!! EITHER WAY TRUMP is still the WINNER!!!

  9. Judicial Watch Warns California to Clean Voter Registration Lists or Face Federal Lawsuit AUGUST 04, 2017 Email Print Text Size Tweet Data Show LA, San Diego, San Francisco Have More Registered Voters than Eligible Adult Citizens – LA Voting Rolls Have 144% of the Total Number of Eligible Residents (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced it sent a notice-of-violation letter to the state of California and 11 of its counties threatening to sue in federal court if it does not clean its voter registration lists as mandated by the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA). Both the NVRA and the federal Help America Vote Act require states to take reasonable steps to maintain accurate voting rolls. The August 1 letter was sent on behalf of several Judicial Watch California supporters and the Election Integrity Project California, Inc. In the letter, Judicial Watch noted that public records obtained on the Election Assistance Commission’s 2016 Election Administration Voting Survey and through verbal accounts from various county agencies show 11 California counties have more registered voters than voting-age citizens: Imperial (102%), Lassen (102%), Los Angeles (112%), Monterey (104%), San Diego (138%), San Francisco (114%), San Mateo (111%), Santa Cruz (109%), Solano (111%), Stanislaus (102%), and Yolo (110%). In the letter, Judicial Watch noted that Los Angeles County officials “informed us that the total number of registered voters now stands at a number that is a whopping 144% of the total number of resident citizens of voting age.” Under Section 8 of the NVRA, states are required to make a reasonable effort to remove the names of ineligible voters from official lists due to “the death of the registrant” or “a change in the residence of the registrant,” and requires states to ensure noncitizens are not registered to vote. There is “strong circumstantial evidence that California municipalities are not conducting reasonable voter registration list maintenance as mandated under the NVRA,” Judicial Watch wrote in the notice letter sent to California Secretary of State Alex Padilla. Judicial Watch referred California officials to a settlement agreement it reached with the State of Ohio in which Ohio agreed to update and maintain its voter registration lists and to keep a current voter registration list online and available for public access. “California’s voting rolls are an absolute mess that undermines the very idea of clean elections,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said. “It is urgent that California take reasonable steps to clean up its rolls. We will sue if state officials fail to act.” In April, Judicial Watch sent notice-of-violation letters threatening to sue 11 states having counties in which the number of registered voters exceeds the number of voting-age citizens. The states are: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina and Tennessee. On July 18, Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit against Montgomery County and the Maryland State Boards of Elections under the NVRA. The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland, Baltimore Division (Judicial Watch vs. Linda H. Lamone, et al. (No. 1:17-cv-02006)). Election Integrity Project California, Inc. is a registered non-profit corporation that seeks to preserve a government of, by, and for the people. To that end, Election Integrity Project California empowers citizen volunteers through education and training to protect the integrity of the electoral process in California. The director of Judicial Watch’s Election Integrity Project is senior attorney Robert Popper, who was formerly deputy chief of the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department.
  10. Fair enough - either way ... IT WASN'T IRAQ that planned the devaluation of their currency!!! Which was my point and to which you've added fuel to the fire. These gurus think they know everything, yet prove time and time again that they don't!!!
  11. Yeah especially if you want to be normal and NOT politically correct !!! Twitter / Google / FaceBook are now going about removing Pro-Trump accounts because the fix is in to 'take out' the President. You and B/A will get your wish, Mueller (Clinton bagman appointed by Rosenberg [Clinton pardoner]) will find twelve jurors in the county that Clinton won 97% of the vote {and yet there's no such thing as election fraud} to fill out his grand jury bench who will find no problem wanting to impeach the President for being anti-corporation and pro-America. And you can say good bye to all your current precious freedoms as Obama and his Democrats take your country away from you. Because with Trump out of the way - the internet freedom you used to enjoy will disappear and the MSM will once more start feeding their bullshyte lies to the American people to further desensitize them to the upcoming takeover of the government and the Soros-funded muslim apocalypse.
  12. allegedly .... Good God - it`s from the Guardian - but there has been an audio tape released from someone with FBI sources who has seen the FBI Reports regarding the Wikileaks / DNC email hack / Seth Rich murder.
  13. Ummm .... Iraq did no such thing !!! The UN put sanctions on Iraq after the gulf war which stopped the issuance of the Swiss dinar notes that had been in use. Under further U.S. sanctions, Iraq ratcheted up the printing presses to print more dinars - the glut of dinars began to drive the rate down - It was NOT a pre-planned event meant to artificially keep the value down!!!
  14. Really? Read your headline again ... You posted it because you can't stand the fact Trump is your President and anything you find which shows, or tries to show Trump in a bad light is fodder for your hatred of all things Trump. Your righteous indignation at being called out on it is typical for your posts. Your "I didn't mean it that way" replies are too frequent and too blatantly obvious
  15. Chelsea is just another Clinton ... corrupt to the bone - just like mommy and daddy ... And I'm fairly certain despite the dems wanting to put her forward as a viable candidate for president eventually - the American people don't want her or her family anywhere near the White House!
  16. Oh greaaaat duuuude ... don'tcha just hate when that happens ...
  17. Murdering Qaddafi happened !!! Benghazi happened !!! Arming Syrian terrorists happened !!! Selling Uranium One to Russia happened !!! Paying homage the former leader of the KKK Robert Byrd happened !!! Pay for Play with the Clinton Foundation happened !!! Stealing billions from Haiti donations happened !!! Taking billions from George Soros happened !!! Taking millions from Saudi Arabia as campaign contributions happened !!! Taking millions from other foreign governments happened !!! Rigging the election to beat Bernie happened !!! Yet this witch will have you believe because she's a mother and grandmother, and a woman, she deserved to be President - but the Russians hacked the election !!! Now with Pakistani Awan arrested trying to flee the country, I can't wait to find out where this little story will lead - but him and his Muslim Brotherhood buddies it would seem have been stealing secrets from the DNC and other government agencies for years now ... yet the Russian collusion delusion with Donald Trump is more important to the MSM.
  18. California Deputy Attorney arrested on child pornography charge Posted: Jul 27, 2017 2:12 AM EST Updated: Jul 27, 2017 1:33 PM EST Deputy Attorney General arrested on child porn allegations A California Deputy Attorney arrested on child pornography charge 03:00 SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) – A state prosecutor and son of an infamous figure in the Watergate scandal was arrested on a child pornography charge at his home in Coronado. California Deputy Attorney General Raymond Liddy, who is 53-years-old, was taken into custody and booked into federal jail Tuesday. He is the son of G. Gordon Liddy. Raymond was accused of possessing disturbing pornographic images. “Just the mere fact of charges like this are a tragedy for everyone involved,” said Raymond’s attorney, Knut Johnson. Johnson told News 8 exclusively that FBI agents arrested the Deputy A.G. “He has plead not guilty. This is the very beginning of the case and then we will get to the end and figure out what it is all about,” said Johnson. According to federal court records, the child porn case started this past January when Raymond’s internet provider sent a cybercrimes tip to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children about an uploaded child porn image. Further investigation showed ten child porn images – one of a nude prepubescent girl linked to Raymond’s online account. “He is a wonderful person. He is universally loved by a lot of different people who expressed that to me and he is a terrific human being,” said Johnson. Neighbors said they are shocked. News 8 featured Raymond, who is also a Marine Reservist, when he returned from Iraq in 2003, patrolling the U.N. headquarters before it blasted. “He dedicated a whole lot of his life to this country,” said Johnson. A spokesperson for the California Attorney General said the office is aware of the allegations and Raymond has been placed on administrative time-off. Raymond made his first court appearance Tuesday. He is expected to be released from jail and put on house arrest. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for August 8 in federal court.
  19. Hey if he was hired because he was going to go after the Swamp crooks and Hitlery in particular, and he is more obsessed with marijuana laws then yes, kick him in the ass to start doing the job Trump wants him to do. But, IF he's refusing to go after the swamp creatures because he feels an affinity to the 'senate boys club' then yes - fire his ass instead and put someone in charge who will !!!
  20. Wait the other day it was going to be the firing of Mueller ... or Sessions ... or someone.
  21. Do you ever read what you post? IT DOES NOT SAY that THE NEW RATES ARE IN THE GAZETTE !!!! It's all hopium that the new rates should show in the Gazette!!!
  22. Funny how the MSM wants everyone to believe that most migrants are women and children seeking help and every photo op that makes it to the front pages IS just that ... yet, as the saying goes - a picture is worth a thousand words!!
  23. doh!!!! ummmm ... because it's NOT from the POST It's a Washington Times article !!!!
