  1. LINK I think it's important to note that this article does not say that the CBI is stopping the auctions permanently. I did a quick search (in English since I don't speak Arabic) to see if if anyone else is reporting this and I couldn't find anything. But it is absolutely true that the auctions have stopped, we've been talking about how the last auction was back on May 21, so what the article said is true: the CBI has stopped the auctions. And also, I will point out that we've noticed how the CBI has previously stopped the auctions for days and weeks several times in the last few months. I figured it was from coronavirus (as this article says is the reason) and also because of low oil prices. So without the article specifically saying that the auctions are stopped permanently, I don't think it means anything with regards to the RV. Moreover, the other aritlce about the CBI proposing to transfer the auctions to the MInistry of Finance is from April. When I first read that article yesterday, I actually assumed that the CBI simply didn't want to have to deal with constantly having to exchange dollars for dinar to pay the bills. With the low oil prices, they're way short of money so I figured as soon as a payment in dollars comes in, they immediatley have to exchange it to dinar in order to pay the bills that are piling up. Additionally, that article said the CBI renewed their proposal, which means they've been asking to do this for some time. So, again, I really don't think you can say this is a sign the RV is about to happen. That said, we have a lot of exciting things happening this month: hopefully the remaining Ministers get voted on next week, and Pompeo is set to visit Iraq later this month, and Bagdad and Kurdistan might really finalize the HCL in a couple of weeks. These are all really big, important things. Part of me thinks they RV will likely happen once these things are done. But another part of me, the hopium-fueld part, thinks that Iraq has to be super careful about picking the RV date. Based on past RVs in other countries, they do it when the world least expects it. You can't announce the RV is about to happen because everyone would go crazy and people would scramble to rob anyone, any store, any bank, any place they could possibly get their hands on more dinar. Soooooo, since logic dictates that the RV would happen after these big things get finalized, if Iraq really wanted to do it when it's least expected, seems like now would be a perfect time. And as I've said, it seems reasonable to me that doing the RV when the financial markets are down would be helpful, and the auctions are currently stopped, and the ISX is currently closed. So since now is a time when people are NOT EXPECTING the RV because they're waiting for those 3 big things to get done....... it just might actually happen this weekend. I've been in this 9 years and can't really believe this could finally be it, but I like the hopium rush and for others who do too..... GO RV this weekend!!! Wouldn't it be somthing if we wake up Sunday and it's done?! And even if it's not, Iraq still has a great month coming up so surely it can't be that much longer. 🍾 To hopium!!! 🍷

  3. Communist China Throws Full Support Behind “Prairie Fire” Riots Destroying America They Call “Beautiful” 28 December 2019 dire warning that the socialist stronghold Commonwealth of Virginia was preparing to unleash “Red Guard Forces” that are similar to those deployed in China by communist leader Chairman Mao Zedong in 1966, who unleashed his angry and violent fist raising mass student-led paramilitary social movement called the “Red Guards” to kill up to 20-million Chinese peoples not bowing to socialist ideology—grimly reveals that Virginia socialist Democrat Party tyrant Governor Ralph Northam rejected a call by the White House to deploy National Guard forces to protect innocent lives—a rejection coming at the exact same time Richmond-Virginia Police Chief Chief William Smith broke down in tears on live television while describing how these “Red Guard Forces” set ablaze an apartment building with children inside, and then kept fire officials from being able to reach the scene and save them—a tragedy totally ignored by socialist leader former President Barack Obama, who yesterday used his time to hold a virtual roundtable where he said he's “encouraged by mass protests” and stated: “We have seen in the last several weeks, the last few months, the kinds of epic changes and events in our country that are as profound as anything I’ve seen in my lifetime”—which most remarkable about saw Obama quoting verbatim from the socialist war manual titled “Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-imperialism”—that’s called “the magnum opus written by Obama friend Bill Ayers”—and wherein it demands that ordinary American people be forced to bow down and pledge their allegiance to socialist revolutionaries—which is now happening as young white women are being stopped in the streets of America and ordered to kneel before these socialists and beg forgiveness for their “crimes”—as well as large crowds of white citizens being rounded up in America and forced to kneel in socialist servitude, too—acts of subservience to these socialist revolutionaries also being exhibited by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, who knelt before these socialists then vowed to vowed to cripple the Los Angeles Police Department by taking $150-million of their budget and giving it to socialist revolutionary groups—all of which Communist China has just declared “Is A Beautiful Sight” and “Retribution” for a US political system they say is “declining at an accelerating rate”—and is why they’re suggesting they are going to support these riots tearing America apart. [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.] American people get front row seat to see what an actual socialist revolution looks like—and Communist China couldn’t be happier. According to this report, predictably the radical anti-Trump leftist cable news outlet CNN raved about Obama’s quoting from the Prairie Fire socialist revolutionary handbook, calling his vile words ‘Confident, Hopeful and Strong”—but to be noted about, is a part of a leftist US mainstream media establishment whose glaring hypocrisy has now taken on breathtaking proportions—best exampled by leftist writer Amanda Mull, who just a month ago penned an apocalyptic editorial over Georgia’s phased reopening because too many people would be near each other—but is now taking issue with New York City curfews being implemented to curb pandemic riots torching businesses and terrorizing communities—with her exactly screaming “I’m sorry but 8 p.m. is an absolutely insane curfew for a city in which much of the population famously does not even eat dinner until like 9”—which aside from failing to notice that these New York City riots put more people close to each other than Georgia has citizens—overlooks the fact that every restaurant in New York City that’s not yet been burned downed and looted, are all still closed, no matter when someone wants to eat in them. With shocking evidence growing indicating that an internal uprising is being orchestrated in the United States, while one former ANTIFA leader admits this terrorist groups acts “Are The Very Definition Of Domestic Terrorism”, this report continues, the leftist US mainstream media is now resorting to telling the American people outright lies—the latest example being they’re saying President Trump ordered protesters near the White House be shot with rubber bullets and tear gassed, none of which was true—and should be expected of a leftist media that lied about the Russia collusion hoax, about the Mueller probe, about impeachment, about the coronavirus—and now they’re lying about the riots, too—but whose biggest lie destroying America today is that US police forces are shooting unarmed black people at will—though the facts prove that in 2019 alone, just 10 unarmed black people were killed by US police forces—8 of which were ruled justified, and 2 of which saw the police officers being criminally charged. Though the death of any unarmed black person killed by US police forces is a tragedy, this report concludes, the hysterical fearmongering of one by the leftist US mainstream media and socialist Democrat Party leaders to incite riots causing billions-of-dollars worth of damage, along with needless other deaths, mass carnage and human suffering needs serious and sane examination—an examination that would show that US police kill twice as many white people as black people in a given year—deaths that include unarmed 19-year-old white teenager Samantha Ramsey, who police shot 4-times because they thought she might run over them—a young white man white man named Daniel Shaver, who was gunned down by US police while on his knees in the hallway of a hotel, crying and begging for his life, and it’s all on video—a young white man named Tony Timpa, whom US police suffocated to death during an arrest while these murdering police officers laughed and cracked jokes as he lay dead on the pavement—just a few of the countess number of unarmed white people murdered by US police officers every year in numbers greater than those black peoples have ever experienced—and most critically to note about, are all actual murders the US police officers committing them were never criminally charged for—thus making it logical to conclude that if anyone in America has the right to riot and destroy their nation because police are murdering them, it’s their white citizens---a true fact it’s now supposedly “racist” to point out, and the leftist US mainstream media ignores—thus explaining why the United States is in the predicament it’s now in—as those who don’t face and acknowledge truth can never solve anything. link While racism exists and is totally wrong, it's nothing new and has always been a part of life. The world just is not fair and the best we can do is try to establish societies where there is a rule of law that supports fairness and justice as much as possible. I think we will always fall short though, because all of our history has shown that to be the case. Still, I can't help dream that some day, some how, the lion will really lie down with the lamb and there will be peace on earth. Until then, we all individually, have to do our best to lead righteous, moral and just lives and create and maintain societies with these same beliefs and goals. Beating down someone who did nothing to you, out of anger for injustices that happened earlier, or worse, just because you want to loot and take things for free, doesn't fix anything. It only creates more anger that will beget more and greater violence. Listen to Tucker Carlson's report above where he puts out facts that show police brutality against blacks is actually way down. The truth is, the heated issue of racism is being co-opted by globalist, socialist forces to take down the freest country in the world. The U.S. has already been declining for decades and if we don't take a stand now and stop the degredation, we'll likely end up like China, or even become a part of it - with no free speech, no freedom of religion and constantly monitored so if we do something our leaders don't like, we are punished, imprisoned or killed with our organs being harvested while we're still awake. The democrats, and some republicans, are in bed with China and they are selling us out. But there are way more of us than there are of them, and if we stick together, we are powerful, and they can't control us anymore. Then we have the power to give them the boot! If we remain divided and continue to fight each other, they'll continue to control us. Even if you personally dislike Trump, at least he's fighting for the values in the US Constitution and he has improved the quality of life for the majority of Americans in the short time he's been President, despite being constantly attacked and sabataged the whole time. He's keeping his promises and doing what he said he'd do. We need leaders who are helping us, not the ones who are beating us now and taking away the things we value. Can you imaging defunding the police? And then not being allowed to own guns (and probably soon even knives like in England) to protect yourself? How is that gonna work? The criminals will always have guns, disarming good people who only want to protect themselves. won't work out well for the good people. I hope and pray people will put aside their personal grievances and look at what's really at stake here.
  4. For what it's worth, I saw in the last couple of days that Delta, (one of the gurus that I have zero confindence in), who supposed speaks Arabic and watches Iraq TV, said that Iraq has been announcing that on TV. However for years, Iraq has been talking about increasing the value of the dinar. Apparently, even when they dropped the rate to 1/20 of a penny in 2003 (or whenever it was), they even the people then that they would one day give the value back to them. BUT Iraq - or any country - would not, and cannot announce that they're going to RV shortly. If they did that it would be pandemonium. People would go out robbing people, stores, banks and no doubt hurting and killing people in the process. They absolutely have to keep the timing of a coming rate increase hidden. They can't even hint that it's about to happen soon because that would also trigger pandemonium and rampant crime. So I would assume that something was said, but that it was just talking about it in general, or recommending it, and not indicating a specific time frame, only that adding value to the dinar is on the horizon at some point. This is what they've been doing for years, after all. That said, xchangeofAmerica.com is still out of dinar and the prices for dinar on ebay are almost double what they were a month or so ago. So clearly many people are gobbling up dinar and the likely reason would be that, all of the sudden, a lot more people now believe in the RV. If you read my initial post in this thread, I stated I think this weekend (probably early Sunday morning), is a potential RV date because the ISX will be closed until that day and the currency auctions have not taken place since May 21 and may not start up again until then too. To me, it seems like having the financial markets closed while they set up everything to effect the RV, could be helpful. So when I see both the auctions and ISX stopped/closed at the same time, that puts me on alert for a potential RV to happen during that period. Although, I can't say that closed financial markets are necessary for the RV, it's just my personal opinion that it might make it easier for them to do it then. Anyway, I doubt the text you got is a legitimate indication that the RV is about to happen, but still I think there's good reason to be excited and hopeful. Iraq is bleeding millions of dollars every month. They are out of money to run the government and looking to borrow it from wherever they can get it. But if they just RV, all the dinar they hold will suddenly be worth 17 to 100 times or more what it's worth now which gives them a really nice cushion and takes the pressure off. And it would really make the protestors happy too, a market rate on the dinar was on the list of 10 items they presented to the government back in Oct/Nov. Now that they've good a good PM in and approved, and with his Cabinet basically complete, surely RV has to be high on their list of things to do.
  5. I think $.10 is a good, conservative choice for planning purposes. That's a 17 fold increase which seems very doable, especially since they purposely decreased the rate so drastically to around 1/20 of a penny after the fall of Saddam. However, I think these new, low oil prices now justify them raising the rate as high as they think they can possibly manage. So I think the chances of it coming it at $1+/- have never been better. But like you, I'm good at $.10, and if that's all it is, I'd still be super stoked that it actually, finally RVed!
  6. We knew Soros is behind much of the violence that happens in the US, and we knew he was paying protestors. But this guy from California says he got rich from it. He gets paid double for every person he brings in and apparently get's a percentage of what the protestors that he brings in earn. He claims he's responsible for most of the protests in California (note this interview is 3 years old). He admits he doesn't care about the protests and that if he wasn't getting paid, he's be skiing (I guess because he's rich enough now that he no longer needs to work) and/or possibly has residual income from all the people he's sponsored (like multi level marketing). In the beginning he admits "we're paid to beat....." which I believe he was about to say "beat up people", but in mid sentence, he thought better of saying it on camera and stopped. At the end, the amoral fool is clearly proud of himself as he thinks he's sharing a great opportunity for everyone. UNBELIEVABLE!
  7. Since I really respect Breitling, and he thinks Iraq should Rv, at least $.53 as a minimum, I'm really hoping for that. I would be over the moon if it was a buck. But both of those are really huge returns ( over 60 times (6,000%) and 117 times (11,700%), respectively, and my mind has trouble fathoming that such a big increase is possible. But then again what do I know... On the other hand, my conservative, logical brain thinks we'd be lucky to get $.10 which is a 11.7 times (1,170%) return and that seems much more doable to me. Really, I have no clue. I figure I'll take pretty much whatever it is and cash in most or everything and invest in real property, precious metals and cryptos. And I do agree that it would float up from wherever it comes in at. Iraq wants to get back over $3 eventually but that will take time because they have to create and grow new and diverse industries in order to create a more stable economny that is not just based on only one industry (oil). No apologies necessary! We all enjoy some good humor, especially now. You know, that's an excellent point!! I hadn't thought about that. So Covid doesn't really explain Iraq closing down the ISX and stopping the auctions so much in the last couple of months. Interesting..... I think we've all be conned with the coronavirus. I admit I was one of the first ones sounding the alarm about it. I said, and I still believe, it is a bioweapon, but it's clear now that it's not the deadly threat it's been made out to be. Russia, Denmark and Germany have recently released reports saying (and I paraphrase) Covid is a nothin' burger. link Even the CDC recently said the mortality rate is only .26% - and that's only counting the people who actually get infected with it. A huge percentage of people's immune system is strong enough that they never come down with in the first place. link And recently Italy reported that 96% of Covid deaths were people with comorbidities (like diabetes, heart disease....) - and the average number of comorbidities was 3! Even more shocking is that the average age of deceased people was 80. So pretty much 96% of Italy's Covid deaths were people who were about to die anyway. link And we know in the US they now attribute any death they possible can to coronavirus even when it clearly wasn't the cause. And don't get me started on the states that mandated nursing homes take Covid patients which then killed a lot more people just so they could increase the death toll. Those effing rat bas*@$#s!!! Killing off the elderly and ruining our great economy just because they want to break Trump. What a pity that the Democrat's stated ideology, which is noble, has been hijacked by socialists who want to end capitalism and take away our rights so they can rule over us in comfort while we are forced to live and work in collectives. These democratic socialists leaders just want their positions of power and income and could care less about how many people are hurt and killed or how much the masses suffer. It's just like Antifa - it's supposed to be Anti Fascists, but decades ago it was hijacked by the same socialists who want to take over the US. link 1 link 2 I hope and pray for the US with all my heart and soul that people wake up to what's happening and that righteousness and justice prevail. And I hope and pray for the RV too, because if the US falls to socialism, at least we'll have the wherewithal to get out of Dodge!
  8. WARNING!!! If you don't like reading speculation about why the RV may be imminent, please just skip this post!!! That way you won't have to get upset and you also won't rain on the parade of those of us who like to partake of hopium. I just realized this today, and I find it interesting that there has been no currency auction since May 21st. And also that the ISX was last open on May 21st and now they just announced that the ISX will remained closed through June 4th. For the ISX, Fridays and Saturdays are holidays, so the next open trading day for the ISX will be June 7th. And finally, last Saturday, Iraq's curfew/lockdown was extended until June 6th, which means Iraq reopens on June 7th. Now that Kazemi seated his Cabinet last month and is already taking on a variety of issues, it looks like Parliament is even stepping up to try and form a coalition to help him do that more effectively. Which is great because he faces a lot of opposition to the changes he's trying to initiate. I have to think that one of Kazemi's most pressing issues is the huge cash shortfall Iraq now has every month due to low oil prices (which don't seem likely to increase much - if at all, in the short or long term). I honestly don't know if shutting down the auctions and the stock market are necessary for the RV, but to me it just makes sense that it would be easier to RV while financial markets are shut down. And I do find it a bit strange that Iraq has shut them both down quite a few times in the last couple of months. Of course we have had the coronavirus during that time, but still, it may not be just a coincidence that it occurred when oil prices tanked and put Iraq's budget seriously deep into the red every month. Personally, I wonder if Iraq had tried to do the RV one or more times during the last two months, but just couldn't get it done because adversaries blocked it everytime. There's no way to know I guess, but I still wonder because the sooner Iraq RVs, the millions and millions of dollars they immediately stop losing. So under those circumstances, Iraq should RV immediately. Anyway, I know it's entirely possible we'll see June 7th come and go with no RV, and the currency auctions start up again and/or the ISX reopen. If that happens, it may just mean that the RV got thwarted yet again. Or I could be totally wrong about all of this. But in any event, I have to think, with all the progress that Kazemi has been able to make, and having achieved the milestone of seating his Cabinet, surely chances are much better than they've ever been. So if Iraq was close to RVing before, maybe this time it's in a strong enough position to finally pull it off. GOOOOOO RV!!! And aren't these riots horrible!!! So disturbing and tragic.😢😢😢 I for one welcome this bit of hopium because it's something pleasant to have in the midst of our beloved U.S. literally burning.
  9. That is a Very good Question....it appears easiest way to solve their problem would be to raise the Value EXACTLY!!! That's why we are all so excited here! Obviously, though, the CBI and/or the government isn't quite ready so far, or the RV would be done already . We don't know what they're waiting on/for, but we are all hoping that with the new PM who's kicking butt and taking names, whatever the hold up is, hopefully it will get resolved very, very soon.
  10. It's up on both his blogspot website and youtube. It's a long one at 58 minutes, but it's good. He said a lot of the stuff we see in the news is only proposals. Until the idea is taken to Parliament and voted into effect, it means nothing. So that explains why we see so many contraditing articles. And he mentioned the translation problems, which we all struggle with. He emphasized that Iraq is really in trouble which we already knew. Oil prices will remain low (they need $56/barrel and they're $20-30 below that on each barrel and likely will remain that low long term). He spoke specifically about Iraq printing more moeny to pay salaries since they're that broke. That would devalue the dinar even further, but it's at least a way to make payroll. Of course, another way would be the RV!! Also the IMF won't lend Iraq more money because Iraq won't be able to pay them back. So Breitling said, if Iraq doesn't RV, the IMF can come in and make them - so I guess that's hanging over Iraq's head. He said the RV is really only up to the CBI and they could do it overnight, but Parliament can go to the CBI and ask them to do it and then the CBI will decide if they can successfully do it and if so then they'd do it. Anyway, he was optimistic about the RV happening soon, just like most of us here are. Let's hope it's this month, or at least June!
  11. THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH, YOU ROCK!!! I don't know what happened, but when I was tyring to copy and paste in the first twitter link, instead it posted a screen shot of an email I'd sent earlier today, and I have no idea where that screen shot came from. So I just deleted it and then copy and pasted in the twitter link again. I did notice there was an attachment box at the bottom that had the email graphic in it, but since I didn't click the attachment link to insert it into my post, I thought all was good. But after I submitted the post and reviewed it, the email graphic had been put in again. I edited this post as many times as I could (you only have 10 minutes) to try and take it out, but it always kept re-appearing when I finalized the edit. I tried everything I could find to try and remove it from the attachment (paperclip) box, but nothing I could find or do would remove it. If there is a way to do that, I'd like to know how. Otherwise, if it ever happens again, I'll know not to post that item, lol! Anyway, THANKS AGAIN!!!
  12. Can a moderator please remove the graphic of my email page!!! It needs to be private thanks!
  13. I would really be interested in knowing how many, if any, die hard, anti-Trump Liberals here are changing their minds at all. Does having zero state income tax but still being able to balance the state budget seem attractive? What about having lower coronavirus cases and deaths without having tyrannical lockdowns and not putting small businesses into bankruptcy? I don't really expect an answer, but I would sure like to know if any Liberals are reconsidering their positions these days, especially after all that's been released about the Dems trying to undo the 2016 election with outright lies and then spying on and entrapping innocent Americans that has ruined their lives. God help us if Trump can't get rid of the corruption and restore the Rule of Law.
  14. 150 years ago, the US functioned under a new paradigm focused on production. while the rest of the world focused on increasing trade at the expense of production. I never realized that this viewpoint and approach is what made US the greatest world power less than 100 years later. I had always thought it was our work ethic, born out of immigrants who had to fight to survive in a brand new world. Turns out it's much more than that. And I find it really interesting that, although the US has drifted away from that in the last 50 years or so, it still explains much of the difference between conservatives and liberals today. Albeit, today, liberals do not talk about trade so much as they talk about moving resources from one place to another. I'm just so thankful we have Trump who obviously believes in production and capitalism, and I hope and pray with all my heart that he is successful in moving this country away from globalism and back to nationalism. That one picture speaks volumes,and it's shocking to see the Deep State globablists have been playing the same dirty game they play today for 150 years. This was actually just part of an article that was written about Nature Magazine and how it was created 150 years ago to help England control the masses by teaching Darwinism - which they didn't even believe themselves and pulling them away from the Bible. This is just fascinating! Here's the full article. In 1865, a group of 12 scientists under the leadership of Thomas Huxley, Matthew Arnold, Joseph Hooker, and Herbert Spencer (founder of social Darwinism) was created under the name “X Club” with the mandate to reform global British Imperial strategy. At the time of this group’s formation, Lincoln’s north was on the cusp of putting down the secessionist rebellion which the British Intelligence establishment had work decades to nurture guided by Anglo-American operatives in America itself as well as operations in British Canada. Having far over-extended itself during the 2nd Chinese Opium War (1856-1860) to the Crimean War (1853-1856) to putting down Indian uprisings (1857-1858) and sponsoring the Southern Confederacy (1861-1865), the British Empire knew that it was on the verge of collapse. The world was quickly waking up to its evil nature, and a new paradigm of win-win cooperation was being exported from Lincoln’s America to nations across the world (American was a very different nation from the Anglo-American dumb giant the world has known since JFK’s 1963 murder -MEK). Lincoln’s system had been known as ‘American System of National Economy’, a name created by the father of Germany’s Zollverein Friedrich List years earlier. Unlike British Free Trade, this ‘American System’ was premised on protectionism, national banking, long term infrastructure and most importantly placed the source of value on the human mind’s capacity to make discoveries and inventions as outlined by Lincoln’s 1858 speech by the same name. In this system, the Constitutional concept of the General Welfare was not mere ink on parchment but rather the governing principle of monetary value and national policy. Lincoln’s chief economic advisor and coordinator of the export of the American system internationally after the Civil War was named Henry C. Carey. As early as 1851, Carey wrote his Harmony of Interests which stating: “Two systems are before the world; the one looks to increasing the proportion of persons and of capital engaged in trade and transportation, and therefore to diminishing the proportion engaged in producing commodities with which to trade, with necessarily diminished return to the labour of all; while the other looks to increasing the proportion engaged in the work of production, and diminishing that engaged in trade and transportation, with increased return to all, giving to the labourer good wages, and to the owner of capital good profits… One looks to pauperism, ignorance, depopulation, and barbarism; the other in increasing wealth, comfort, intelligence, combination of action, and civilization. One looks towards universal war; the other towards universal peace. One is the English system; the other we may be proud to call the American system, for it is the only one ever devised the tendency of which was that of elevating while equalizing the condition of man throughout the world.” In Germany, the American System inspired Zollverein (custom’s union) had not only unified a divided nation, but elevated it to a level of productive power and sovereignty which had outpaced the monopoly power of the British East India Company. In Japan, American engineers helped assemble trains funded by a national banking system, and protective tariff during the Meiji Restoration. In Russia, American System follower Sergei Witte, Transport Minister and close advisor to Czar Alexander III, revolutionized the Russian economy with the American-made trains that rolled across the Trans-Siberian Railway. Not even the Ottoman Empire remained untouched by the inspiration for progress, as the Berlin to Baghdad Railway was begun with the intention of unleashing a bold program of modernization of southwest Asia. The construction of continental railroads, and industrial powers of nations internationally was quickly bringing the world land bridge concept first elaborated by Colorado’s Governor William Gilpin quickly into being. For those who are unaware, Gilpin (who was also Lincoln’s body guard and loudest advocate of America’s transcontinental railroad) spent decades championing the international system of win-win cooperation which he outlined in his 1890 Cosmopolitan Railroad stating: “The weapons of mutual slaughter are hurled away; the sanguinary passions find a check, a majority of the human family is found to accept the essential teachings of Christianity IN PRACTICE… Room is discovered for industrial virtue and industrial power. The civilized masses of the world meet; they are mutually enlightened, and fraternize to reconstitute human relations in harmony with nature and with God. The world ceases to be a military camp, incubated only by the military principles of arbitrary force and abject submission. A new and grand order in human affairs inaugurates itself out of these immense concurrent discoveries and events”. Reorganize or Perish The British Empire knew that this emerging new paradigm would render both its maritime control of international trade as obsolete as its international program of usury and cash cropping. It was clear that something had to change dramatically, for if the empire could not adapt in response to this new paradigm, it surely would soon perish. The task of re-shaping imperial policy from a “material force” approach of control to a more “mental force” of control, was assigned to T. H. Huxley and the X Club. This group established the guiding scientific principles of empire that were soon put into practice by two new think tanks known as the Fabian Society and Rhodes Scholar Trust which I outlined in my 3-part series ‘Origins of the Deep State in North America’. Huxley, who is famously known as ‘Darwin’s bulldog’ for relentlessly promoting Darwin’s theory of Natural Selection (a theory in whose scientific merits he didn’t even believe) soon decided that the group should establish a magazine to promote their propaganda. Founded in 1869, the magazine was called Nature and featured articles by Huxley and several X Club members. The deeper purpose of the X Club and its magazine as outlined in a 2013 report entitled ‘Hideous Revolution: The X Club’s Malthusian Revolution in Science’, was geared towards the redefinition of all branches of science around a statistical-empiricist interpretation of the universe which denied the existence of creative reason in mankind or nature. Science was converted from the unbounded study and perfectibility of truth to a mathematically sealed “science of limits”. Darwin, Malthus and the Political Use of a ‘Science of Limits’ The science of “limits” became the foundation of an oligarchical economic science for the elite and naturally had to be kept hidden from the minds of the general population since it followed Thomas Malthus’ mathematical principle of population growth. Malthus’ “principle” of population supposed that unthinking humans reproduce geometrically while nature’s bounty only grows arithmetically and as such periodic population collapses were an unavoidable law of nature which could at best be managed by an oligarchical scientific priesthood who were obliged to periodically cull the herd. Malthus and the X Club leaders believed that nature bestowed upon the ruling class certain tools to accomplish this important task (namely war, famine and disease) and Malthus stated so cold-bloodedly in his 1799 Essay on Population: “We should facilitate, instead of foolishly and vainly endeavoring to impede, the operations of nature in producing this mortality; and if we dread the too frequent visitation of the horrid form of famine, we should sedulously encourage the other forms of destruction, which we compel nature to use. In our towns we should make the streets narrower, crowd more people into the houses, and court the return of the plague.” The X Club’s support of the Darwinian theory of Natural Selection was less a scientific decision in this respect and more of a political one, as Darwin later admitted in his autobiography that his own theory arose directly from his study of Malthus: “In October 1838, fifteen months after I had begun my systematic inquiry, I happened to read for amusement Malthus on Population, and being prepared to appreciate the struggle for existence which everywhere goes on, from long-continued observation of the habits of animals and plants, it at once struck me that under these circumstances favourable variations would tend to be preserved, and unfavourable ones to be destroyed. The result would be the formation of a new species. Here then, I had at last got a theory by which to work”. By universalizing Malthus onto all living creation, the X Club obscured the qualitative difference between humans and monkeys which was advantageous for an empire that can only control humans when they adopt the law of the jungle as standards of moral practice and identity formation rather than anything actually moral. It was thus no accident that Henry C. Carey targeted Darwinism, Malthus and the X Club relentlessly in his Unity of Law: An Exhibition on the Relations of Physical, Social, Mental and Moral Science (1872). In this important book, Carey attacked all systems founded upon master-slave relations saying: “Hence it is that it has given rise to the doctrine e of over-population, which is simply that of slavery, anarchy and societary ruin, as the ultimate condition of mankind; that, too, coming as a consequence of laws emanating from an all-wise and all powerful Being who could, if He would, have instituted laws in virtue of which freedom, order, peace and happiness would have been the lot of man. That these latter have been instituted- that the scheme of creation is not a failure; that is marred by no such errors as those assumed by Mr. Malthus; is proved by all the facts presented for consideration by the advancing communities of the world- the habit of peace, among both individuals and nations, growing with growth of numbers, and increase in power for self-direction.” Anti-Darwinian Approaches to Evolution Although we are told too often today that no alternative system ever existed outside of Darwin’s theory of evolution, a closer inspection of science history during the 19th century proves that to be far from true. During this period, an anti-Darwinian scientific revolution was blossoming in the life sciences under the guiding leadership of figures like James Dwight Dana, Jean-Baptiste Lamarck, Alexander von Humboldt, Georges Cuvier, Karl-Ernst von Baer, and Benjamin Silliman. These scientists not only began questioning the static theory of nature as derived from a literal reading of the Bible, but made huge strides in realizing the higher causal mechanisms defining the flow of evolution. This process was outlined in a 2010 lecture delivered by the author of this report entitled “the Matter Over Darwin’s Missing Mind”. Unlike many of our modern scientists, these figures never saw a dichotomy separating science from religion, as “science” was understood as nothing less than the investigation and participation in God’s Creation, and as such the biosphere and all “units” within it were implicitly defined as more than the sum of its parts and all fast approaching theories of evolution that were driven by intention, harmony and directionality. This outlook was showcased brilliantly by the great naturalist and embryologists Karl Ernst von Baer who wrote in his On the Purpose of Nature (1876): “The reciprocal interconnections of organisms with one another and their relationship to the universal materials that offer them the means for sustaining life, is what has been called the harmony of nature, that is a relationship of mutual regulation. Just as tones only give rise to a harmony when they are bound together in accordance with certain rules so can the individual processes in the wholeness of nature only exist and endure if they stand in certain relationships to one another. Chance is unable to create anything enduring, rather it is only capable of destruction.” Huxley and the Darwinians on the other hand, promoted an opposing “bottom up” interpretation of evolution by starting with the imagined ‘random mutations’ in the immeasurably small which supposedly added up to the collective sum of all species and biosphere. This biosphere was thus defined as little more than the sum of its parts. The imperial school of Huxley’s X Club denied not only creativity’s existence from this higher metaphysical standpoint, but also denied the fact that humanity can uniquely translate the fruits of those creative discoveries into new forms of scientific and technological progress which had the effect of increasing our species’ ability to transcend our “limits to growth” (or as modern neo-Malthusians have termed our “carrying capacity”). Nature Magazine Continues its Dismal Legacy Throughout the 20th century Nature Magazine has won an ugly reputation as an enforcer of deductive/inductive models of thinking which have destroyed the careers and lives of many creative scientists. One of these scientists was the preeminent immunologist Jacques Benveniste (1935-2004) who suffered a 15 year witch hunt led by Nature Magazine as punishment for his discoveries on “water memory and life” (ie: how organic molecules configure the geometry of H2O molecules and imprint their “information” into said water). This defamation campaign began in 1988 when Nature Magazine conducted an “official” attempt to duplicate the results of Benveniste’s discoveries on water’s power to retain the information of allergenic substances within its structure which continued to cause allergic reactions upon living tissues and organs long after all traces of the substances were filtered from various solutions. As outlined in the 2014 documentary Water Memory, Nature Magazine went so far as to hire a stage magician named James Randy to co-lead an investigative team which intentionally botched Benveniste’s results, lied about the data and condemned Benveniste as a fraudster. This operation ruined the scientist’s reputation, dried up his funding and kept biology locked into the materialist cage for another three decades. Nature Magazine’s slander campaigns were described by Benveniste as a “mockery” which used “McCarthy-like methods and public defamation campaigns” to crush him. Today’s Fight for a Science of Causes Whether or not COVID-19 arose naturally as Nature Magazine attests or whether it arose in a laboratory as Dr. Luc Montagnier believes, what is certain is that science can be temporarily retarded, but its course of evolution cannot be held back forever. Today, the legacy of Alexander von Humboldt, Karl Erst von Baer and Cuvier, Dana, Vernadsky and Benveniste is alive and well with Dr. Montagnier and teams of international researchers who have taken the theoretical, experimental and clinical work on water memory to a revolutionary new level with the opening up of a new school of quantum optical biophysics as I outlined in my recent paper Big Pharma Beware: Dr. Montagnier Shines New Light on COVID-19 and The Future of Medicine. Describing the coming revolutions in biology, Montagnier said: “The day that we admit that signals can have tangible effects, we will use them. From that moment on we will be able to treat patients with waves. Therefore it’s a new domain of medicine that people fear of course. Especially the pharmaceutical industry… one day we will be able to treat cancers using frequency waves.” With Montagnier’s bold call for an international scientific crash program into wave harmonics therapy to deal with COVID-19, and with the new alignment of nationalist systems amidst the multi-polar alliance led by Russia and China, there is a serious chance that the new paradigm of win-win cooperation championed by Henry C. Carey, Lincoln and other international patriots in the wake of America’s Civil War, may actually be blossoming once more.
  15. YES!!!! And IQD prices on ebay have doubled as well. For a long time you could get 1 million for around $1000. But now nobody is selling 1 million, the most you can get is 500,000 and they're asking $1000. This run on dinar must mean lots of people now believe it's a good investment, undoubtedly because the RV is likely to happen. Jeff, Dinar Investor (I know, I know, he's been wrong on the dates before, but he does think logically and he's pretty objective, so I give him more credibility that the other gurus (except Breitling, my favorite!), has been saying the 26th because of these holidays. Also, Iraq talking about printing more money and lowering the price of dinar doesn't make sense. Makes me wonder if it's a red herring to try and throw people off guard about an imminent RV. But I will say, it doesn't make sense to me to try and keep people under lockdown when the RV happens. Iraqis will being going crazy so I don't see how a lockdown would be a good thing. But, then again, what do I know, anyway?! I still think this month is a really good possibility and also June too because of the meetings that will take place then AND because Iraq seems to want to break down the 2020 budget into 2 parts, one for the first half of the year and the other for the second half. The first half would end on June 30, so June 30 seems like it could be a possibility. All these things are pretty exciting and I'm not sure if it's only wishful thinking, but something in my bones tells me that my life is about to change for the better in a big way. And @floridian, thanks for the video! So cool to see real Paul and Brian Epstein!
  16. The technology Bill Gates wants to use in vaccines to track people (mark of the beast) is based on an enzyme he calls "LUCIFERase"! And it's patent number is 060606! How cocky can he get! Despite the fact that 33% of the world are Christians, Gates must be pretty confident that he will prevail to openly slap 1/3 of the world's people in the face like this. Even though I've seen a lot of good evidence that Covid looks to be a bioweapon, I can't deny the death toll is much, much less than you'd expect. And the fact that hodroxychloroquine will heal most people with Covid (as long as they don't wait until they're really, really sick from it and near death), and that it also acts to immunize people from Covid before they're exposed to it, means we don't have to be afraid of Covid now. Plus there are many, many reports that high dose Vitamin C (5-10 grams/day) and Vitamin D3 (5,000 IU/day) also seem to protect people from catching Covid. Still, the murderous MSM and Big Pharma are doing everything they to claim inexpensive and relatively safe hydroxychloroquine is dangerous and then also make it hard for doctors to subscribe it, because they're clearly on board with Gates' agenda. And they pull down sites that advocate for taking Vitamins C and D to boost people's immunity. QAnon is indicating that Covid is a plot between China and the Deep State to take out Trump. And although I've lost a lot of confidence in Q, it is looking more and more like he could be right. God help us all if Trump doesn't prevail in draining the wamp! link Enzyme that will make Bill Gates’ vaccine microchip implant work known as LUCIFERASE Part of the plan for vaccination against the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) is to inject people with syringes that contain implantable “quantum dot” tattoos, which we reported are a type of microchip that would seem to constitute the Mark of the Beast. And further proof of this comes in the form of the enzyme that Bill Gates has chosen to make it all possible, which has been ominously dubbed “luciferase.” According to reports, luciferase will activate these quantum dot “microneedles,” as they are also called, effectively delivering the so-called vaccines into people’s bodies. This “near infrared bioluminescence enzyme luciferase” is what will make the Gates vaccines readable through special mobile device apps that will scan the injection site and identify the “digital certificates,” or proof of vaccination, that Gates and others have been publicly announcing in recent days. With the help of luciferase, a person’s proof of vaccination will be readable in perpetuity long after he or she was injected with a vaccine for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19). If a digital certificate is present, in other words, that person will be allowed to enter a store to buy food or fly on an airplane. If it is not present, then that person will presumably be turned away and told to go get vaccinated if he or she wants to participate in society. “With each passing day, it becomes clearer and plainer to those of us who are Bible believers that we are living in a very unique time period,” writes Geoffrey Grider for Now the End Begins. “So unique, in fact, that we just might be witnessing the kingdom of Antichrist and the Mark of the Beast system being assembled before our very eyes.” Implantable Microsoft digital ID microchip bears the patent #060606 The sudden rise of Bill Gates and his plans for global vaccine domination are not going unnoticed, even by many in the mainstream media. His agenda is rapidly coming to fruition as states all across the country bait the public into accepting a “new normal” where contact tracing, protective wear, and mandatory vaccination are requirements to participate in the new one world order that is unfolding before our very eyes. Using the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) as a cover, these authoritarian globalists are imposing all kinds of new restrictions on the masses using fear and coercion to get it done rapidly. And they are throwing all kinds of end times signs right in our faces along the way, including another implantable microchip device created by Microsoft that bears the patent number of #060606, or 666 without the zeroes. This new identification “mark” technology, which is part of ID2020, will function as a digital ID microchip, or “immunity passport,” that will allow people who accept it to be a part of the new normal once the lockdowns are finally ended. Those who refuse this #060606 microchip, however, will not be allowed to rejoin society. Taking all of this into consideration, it becomes clear that the new world order has arrived. And every individual who is left behind will be forced to accept this implantable tech, or else be barred from participating in it. This means no job, no food, and no social interactions of any kind unless you agree to take this collective Mark of the Beast in all of its many components.
  17. EXCELLENT!!!! Thank you @starrider! Trump better win his battle to drain the swamp, or the US and the rest of the world will fall to socialism an quickly follow in China's footsteps. Also, 5-10 grams (5000-10,000 mg) of Vitamin C supercharges your immunity and if you add 5,000 IU of Vitamin D3, it appears to fortify your body enough that it will not even contract Covid19 .
  18. @Floridian, you are probably correct that it was Terry K, I honestly remember it as TNT Tony, but I'll take your word for it and admit I'm wrong and I apologize for that mistake. I'm also sorry you feel that I'm judging you, because I'm not. What I said was, "You obviously still have some dinar and believe in the RV because you are active here on DV. So it surprises me that you feel you were swindled, that's all..... As I said, jmho, and you are certainly entilted to have a different one." I really don't see that as being judgemental and I'm sorry that you took it that way. I did my best to point out that I just had a different viewpoint, but that it's fine that we see things differently. But with regards to the facts, I stand by what I said. Namely that while Sterling did commit the crime of paying someone to hype the dinar so that they could increase their sales, their whole business was a NOT a con or scam and that their selling dinar on reserves is not the main cause of action. You said, "The "scam" part of the whole deal was that the reserves expired in a very short period of time,...." But that's not what the Justice Department and FBI say!!! I'm not party to the lawsuit as you are, so I admit I don't have as much information as you do, BUT, the FBI did send me an email (copied below) asking if I bought dinar from Sterling Currency. The email did NOT EVEN MENTION RESERVES, and they listed themselves," the FBI sender", as "IraqiDinarScam@fbi.gov". They clearly view the Iraqi dinar RV as a scam!!! Furthermore on the Justice Department's webite, on the page they've made specifically for the Sterling Currency Group Action (partially copied below), they even put out the blanket call for anyone who bought Iraqi dinar from any other source to contact them. And then they proceed to explain that the Iraqi dinar RV is a scam! So the scam is not that Sterling sold dinar on reserves, the Feds don't even mention reserves. The Feds think that the claim that the IQD will ever RV is the scam. (Of course, we don't agree with them and we're already used to most people thinking that way). But since there's no way to prove that the RV will never happen and that it is a scam, they were at least able to nail Sterling for illegally paying a pumper to hype an imminent RV so they could increase sales. (And they also nailed them for lying to federal agents.) I honestly think that if the Feds could have found ways to prosecute other dinar dealers, they would have. But since they didn't prosecute any other dealers who were also selling dinar on reserves, that indicates to me that "selling dinar on reserves" was not much of a crime. Frankly, l really don't know how "selling dinar on reserves" fits into Sterling's lawsuit, although it clearly looks to be a secondary issue. But I do hope you get your reserve money back since it's clearly a sore spot for you. And hopefully soon we'll see the RV happen and we can all finally move on to bigger and better things! **************************************************************************** (from the Justice Department's Sterling Currency Action website) Please also note that if you believe you are a victim of a scheme involving the Iraqi dinar you may contact the FBI. The FBI website states: ince the 2003 Iraq war, various promoters have claimed that the Iraqi dinar will undergo a “revaluation” (RV), meaning that dinar holders would make enormous profits. Many of these promoters claim to have high-level sources in the government or the financial industry. Several state agencies, major financial institutions, and consumer protection groups have cautioned that this is a scam.

  19. I think you're wrong that the main reason the were charged is because they sold dinar on reserves. I still say it was because they were paying TNT Tony to hype the RV to increase their sales. It may be true that selling currency on reserves is illegal though, because no currency dealers do that anymore. However, at the time, there were other currency dealers, seems like maybe even most of them, selling dinar on reserves and they didn't get in trouble for it. So if that was the main reason why Sterling was prosecuted, surely the Justice Department would have gone after all the other dinar dealers too. It's interesting to me that you believe you were a fool to think the dinar would revalue momentarily and bought on reserve and blame Sterling for that. I would think a good percentage of people here also bought dinar because they thought the RV would happen any minute (I know I did). But no one twisted your arm to make you buy on reserve. I admit I bought some dinar on reserve in 2014 when it seemed like Iraq was about to RV. Of course it didn't and I lost a couple hundred bucks. But I don't blame Sterling for that, and certainly not TNT Tony because it was clear from the start that he was full of it so I never paid him any heed. Obviously buying on reserve was risky, Sterling was very clear it was a short term deal and if it didn't RV in that time, the money was forfeited. I took a gamble and I lost, but, as someone who believes in personal responsibility, I take full responsibility for that and I knew not to risk more than I was willing to lose. You obviously still have some dinar and believe in the RV because you are active here on DV. So it surprises me that you feel you were swindled, that's all. But I still say that, even though they broke the law by illegally payingTNT Tony to hype the dinar in order to increase sales, they were not a total con. The RV should still happen, and if it happens before Ty and his people are sentenced, I would think their sentences will be pretty light. You can tell by what the Justice Department says that they believe the RV is a total scam, that it will never happen and that all the people who bought dinar from Sterling lost all their money. But if it turns out to be a great investment, then Sterling's only real crime was the much lesser crime of illegally paying TNT Tony to lie in order to increase sales. As I said, jmho, and you are certainly entilted to have a different one. But I really you are wrong that the Justice Department's main issue is that they sold dinar on reserve. I still say it was the illegal payments to TNT Tony AND the fact that they (Justice Dept) don't believe the IQD is a legitimate investment (like the vast majority of people!) and that everyone who bought dinar lost all the money they spent on it.
  20. I think some people are over reacting a bit here. I also got this email and another, similar one in April. It is legitimate, it is from the same domain, sterlingcurrencygroup.com that they've been using since 2012. I also bought dinar from them when they were going by Dinar Banker the year before. Up until that time, Dinar Trade had been the main source for most people to buy dinar from, but Ali closed that business and so Dinar Banker then became the main source, though there were some others like GID Associates as well. For those who don't know, Sterling Currency (Dinar Banker) was a legitimate, licensed currency dealer. All currency dealers charge a premium, and Dinar Banker's/Sterling's premium was pretty much the same premium as all currency dealers who sold IQD at the time were charging. Sterling Currency was a legal, licensed currency dealer and the transactions they did were all legal and legitimate. But they got in trouble several years later because they got greedy and started paying TNT Tony to hype that the RV was about to happen any minute so it would increase their sales. That's what they're being prosecuted for, and that's what got them shut down. Right now, I'm sure their lawyers are just trying to show the court that selling Iraqi dinar at that time really was legitimate, and that even real banks had been dealing in it (as I recall Fifth Third Bank in Florida still dealt with dinar at that time, 2011). Ty (owner of Dinar Banker/Sterling Currency) and his people did get greedy - no doubt, they broke laws in order to over hype the dinar. But it's not like they were a ponzi scheme, sold counterfit currency or stole from their customers. The dinar we bought from them is authentic, and we paid the market price for it at the time. But it is true that many people bought from them because they believed the hype that they would become instant millionaires. But really, isn't that why all of us bought dinar too? Maybe not the "instant" part, but still, it's why we all bought. The difference is, those of us who stayed in our dinar investment were more realistic and patient, or at least we learned to be anyway. (I remember buying in May of 2011 because my buddy said Iraq was about to get out of Chapter VII in June, and everyone thought the RV would happen June 2011, lol!!) But for everyone who bought IQD from Sterling Currency and who held on to that dinar, it's still an investment that still could make them a millionaire. 🤞 that finally our ships are about to come in! I'm grateful for Dinar Trade/Sterling selling me my dinar, and I hope they don't throw the book at Ty and his people, because, other than lying about the RV being imminent, I think they did all of us who bought from them a huge favor. jmho
  21. So sorry to read this, but I guess it's really no surprise. Hopefully al-Kazemi will tackle this right away. Thanks for sharing this Blitz!
  22. YIKES! Them's fightin' words!! I wonder who this Ahmet Al-Ziyadi is, I did a search and nothing came up.
  23. This is so sad. Poor people, I hope they take advantage of the fact that their leaders are also dropping like flies to revolt and bring in a new regime. https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-04-29-iran-excavating-10000-new-graves-for-future-deaths.html Iran officials are excavating 10,000 new graves for future coronavirus deaths Iran is building at least 10,000 new graves in the Behesht-e Zahra cemetery in Tehran for future coronavirus victims. This cemetery, the largest in Iran, covers more than 1,200 acres of land and contains nearly 1.7 million graves. A video posted on Twitter showed rows upon rows of empty plots, which appear to be a new section built for coronavirus-related deaths. As the camera pans away from the newly built graves, wailing families can be seen mourning the loss of their loved ones. 182 people are talking about this Tehran deputy mayor Mojtaba Yazdani told state news agency IRNA on Sunday that isolated facilities were also being constructed at Behest-e Zahra, so workers can conduct the traditional washing of the bodies before they are buried. These facilities will be built over former crisis shelters constructed on the cemetery’s grounds. The graves are dug 6.5 feet deep (two meters); however, the bodies will not be dusted with quicklime, the substance coated over graves that help prevent the spread of disease. Meanwhile, other cities dust the graves with quicklime and bury the dead in layers of protective shrouds. Preparing for a second wave Iranian officials have allowed so-called “low-risk businesses” – such as shops, factories and warehouses – to resume operations April 18, following reports of the daily coronavirus death toll hitting an all-time low. In addition, intercity highways and major shopping centers all over the country have been open since April 20. Top officials in the country argue that the country cannot afford to remain in lockdown, saying that it is possible for the country to deal with the virus and reopen the economy through “smart social distancing” measures. Businesses that wish to reopen need to register online and be inspected by health officials. Commuters are discouraged from using public transportation due to anti-congestion measures, leading to a significant uptick in car traffic in Tehran’s highways. Iraj Harirchi, Deputy Minister for Health, warned that the partial lifting of lockdown restrictions can be reversed in the number of infections and deaths goes up once more. But not everyone is on board with the reopening of businesses, as some people, including members of the Tehran City Council, remain skeptical. Mohsen Hashemi, chairman of the city council, challenged the Ministry of Health to reveal the number of COVID-19 cases and deaths in Tehran and its surrounding areas. Hashemi said that without an accurate portrait of the coronavirus outbreak, city officials are forced to look through burial data gathered from Behesht-e Zahra. Hashemi, however, has also refused to give the number of burials conducted in Tehran’s main cemetery. Iran’s official coronavirus figures put on the spotlight The move to build 10,000 new graves have also raised concerns among experts. As of press time, Iran has reported only has 92,584 cases of COVID-19, including 5,877 deaths. However, different sources believe this to be much higher. (Related: Iran could be the next coronavirus death trap as casualties mount amid concerns that FAR more people are infected than the government is reporting.) Gholam Ali Jafazadeh Imanabadi, a member of the Iranian parliament, had dismissed the country’s official coronavirus numbers. In February, he urged state officials to be transparent about the real figures. Imanabadi visited graveyards in both Tehran and Rasht – the northern city he represents – and concluded that officials were concealing the statistics from the people. “You may conceal the numbers, but you cannot hide graveyards,” he added. Other sources echoed Imandabadi’s concerns. A research center working with the parliament revealed that official records only included those who tested positive for COVID-19 and died in hospital. The World Health Organization has also said that Iran’s death toll could be five times higher than the official count, due in part to the fact that health workers were only testing “severe cases.” It’s difficult to tell the actual extent of Iran’s outbreak, due largely to the country’s tightly controlled and regulated media sources. However, if the creation of 10,000 new graves in Behesht-e Zahra is any indication, the Iranian government may be preparing for the deaths of thousands more before the pandemic is over.
