    I fat finger that post, your the only one who caught my misspelling I didn’t realize my finger hit the r till I posted it. Yes the cud is stored in the cows rumon then they bring it back up and chew on it! Which I like that they are not eating grass or hay !

    Well if the cow is grass-fed and regurgitate's what is in the cow's rumon and continues to chew on it, wouldn't what be stored in the rumon be grass or hay depending on what the cow ate?  And do they not swallow what they have been chewing on? So technically they are eating grass or hay. Some are just slow eaters.


    Inquiring minds want to know.

    interesting because i heard they are going to detonate dirty bombs on us soil and blame Russia. trump will commence his fourth term. Biden will not be president.

    Fourth term? He hasn't even finished his first term. A term for President is four years. A commencement of the fourth term would indicate Trump has been office for the previous 12 years. Any President holding office for more than 8 years is unconstitutional according to the respective amendment passed after one of the Roosevelts held office for four terms. The idea behind the amendment was that President George Washington only held office for two terms and no President should hold more than Washington did. Would love to go back to that mindset, but early indicators are that Congress has turned into a mob and mob mentality rules the roost. There is no rule of law for those who are on the left no matter how far left they are.

    Parliamentary Finance clarifies the mechanism for ending the phenomenon of "aliens" in institutions

    Baghdad - Awa - Noor Al-Zaidi

    Today, Tuesday, the Parliamentary Finance Committee revealed a mechanism for ending the (alien) phenomenon in government institutions.
    Committee member Majida Al-Tamimi told the Iraqi News Agency (INA): "There are many aliens in state institutions, and they must be seized and finished with this file," noting that "the best solution to eliminate aliens and create a comprehensive database on all citizens is by adopting the card." Unified patriotism. "
    She explained that "the Finance Committee hosted an advanced cadre from the Ministry of Finance during the period of discussion of the Fiscal Deficit Law and obtained part of the information through it that showed the existence of 3 million and 250 thousand employees on the owners of the state, and more than this number of wages and contracts, which means that more than six million And half a million employees, except for those who receive special grants and salaries in addition to retirees, "stressing that" the actual numbers of employees are less than this number. "
    She pointed out that "Iraq does not have a comprehensive database of its employees," indicating that "the other solution to eliminate this phenomenon is through the use of technologies, the activation of fingerprints and the daily attendance of the employee and the settlement of salaries, and for the employee to receive his salary himself, and not through the agent until the multiplicity is revealed." Salaries are what dilute the money from the budget. "
    It indicated that "the move towards reform starts from the database in the unified national card so that the state can know the employee's salary and income, and whether he owns a house or a rent, and if he is a property a copy of the house deed must be submitted, but if it is a rent, the value of the rent must be known. There will be coordination with the Ministry of Justice in this regard, as well as knowing whether he is a beneficiary of the care salary, "noting that" the database will enable the state to know the amounts spent on employees. "
    Al-Tamimi expected that "half of the salaries that the state spends on employees are not real."

  4. Here are some things to think about:


    • AT&T got a contract to do forensic audit on Dominion voting machines and those machines were being moved to Nashville this past week.


    • The former owner of the AT&T building in Nashville, William Kennard, is a board member for Cerberus Capital Management and AT&T.... He also was Bill Clinton’s FCC chair, and Obama’s Ambassador to the EU.


    • Dominion voting is owned by Cerberus Capital Management.... Cerberus is run by Staple Street Execs. Joe Bidens Brother in Law, Steven Owens, is the cofounder of Staple Street Execs along with William Kennard (mentioned above).


    • Super Computer in TN was connected to the AT&T internet in NASHVILLE.... yesterday evening the Cumberland river cooling system was compromised due to internet outage and Supercomputer fried.....


    • If you don’t know, “Kraken” is a reference to a supercomputer former prosecutor, Sidney Powell, has been talking about.


    So, the explosion “just happened” to be at the AT&T location where they “just so happen” to control the cooling system for the super computer and house the dominion voting machines and drives for forensic audit...


    Does it make sense now why no lives were lost?
    Does it make sense now why the FBI task lead couldn’t even put together a coherent sentence in the press conference yesterday?
    Does it make sense why the mayor was making light of the situation, almost laughing yesterday?

    The IMF is supporting the reform efforts. This is so interesting, This is the first significant move in the exchange rate since the fall of Sadaam. Something is going to happen one way or the other!!   

    And they supported the reform set in place for SBA 2016 too.



    IMF Executive Board Approves US$5.34 billion Stand-By Arrangement for Iraq

    July 7, 2016


    The Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) today approved a three-year Stand-By Arrangement (SBA) for Iraq for SDR 3.831 billion (about US$5.34 billion, or 230 percent of quota) to support the government’s economic reform program.

    The Board also supported the reforms in 2006


    The Board of the IMF approved a request for a Stand-By Arrangement (SBA) for Iraq on December 23, 2005, in support of an economic program for 2006. 


    The language that the IMF is supportive of the Iraqi reforms is nothing new. They have consistently stated they "support the reforms" throughout Iraq's several SBAs and a myriad of other reforms. There is nothing new with the IMF stating they support the reforms of Iraq. It is blase (generic) language quite frankly.

    Will them 2 ever get along and agree on something?  Geesh this is getting seriously old.

    Until this is put into a separate bill, Baghdad and Erbil will be here year after year. The Budget law is only good for one year. Unless this 2021 Budget law is for the three year budget they want to pass. Then it is only good for three years and I cannot see Erbil agreeing to a 3 year fixed rate on oil considering the state of the oil industry.

    Did you or did you not post these? Not once do you post the CBI rate. So you are telling people the rate that the CBI was posting is wrong. So pluh-lease get your story straight. The only rate that is official is the CBI rate. Oh yeah once you post something we do refer back to it, so you can't spin about what you previously posted.


    Absolutely no one wants to go back to the 1190 rate. They want Iraq to get off their bums and get off the program rate.

    So you agree with screwball that the only solution is to get off the program rate and raise the dinar , well you may be right about this. So now i get it that the riot and protesters are out of control because they want to stop the corruptions that spread everywhere like a covid-19 pandemic. Of course,  I always look for The official cbi dinar rate other than or oanda, etc because iqd belongs to cbi. Thanks. i am glad you explain that.

    Then why did you tell people they were wrong about the rate because of what was on XE? Are you even sober? Your comments are all over the place with no consistency.

    As we know that the riot and the protest keep going out of control and never stop because the price of all imported goods increase more than 20%. That's why the goi and cbi have no other choices, but to increase the value of iqd from 1460 to 1000 or less immediately before it gets worse and worse. If i say if the goi and cbi can take immediate action to increase the rate to, let's say 1000 or less, then i am pretty sure the riot and the protest will stop immediately because the price of all imported goods will already back to normal again. And the dinar investors are also happy because let's say if the rate is back to 1000, then 1/1000=0.001, delete 3 zeros, then 1 iqd=$1. I hope i was wrong. Do you folks think there are other best choices/solutions ( except to increase the value of iqd ) to stop the riot and the protest and to return the price of all imported goods back to normal again?

    Your logic is all wrong. Nothing is going to make the investors happy until Iraq RVs at a much greater rate like a USD or above. You want to make people unhappy (everyone including Iraqis), have Iraq say they are going to change the rate to 1190 and not on par or above the USD. At one point in time the IQD was near 4400 to 1 but that was near the beginning. When I entered this investment it was 1166 then they changed it to 1190. That was before 2012 when Shabibi was to have said he as the head of the CBI changed the rate to above a USD. At the time Smelly Maliki was head of Iraq and Shabibi fled for his life to where he is now. So no, no one is going to be happy at 1000 to or 1190 to 1. Just like Screwball stated, until they get off the program rate and raise, not lower, the dinar to some value that is above a penny will people be happy, including Iraqis. 


    I never consult the XE charts on IQD because it is not "officially" traded or on the international market. So XE is pointless until the IQD goes international. Most people on here will quote the CBI.IQ site and occasionally someone pips up (pun intended) about the price of the dinar on XE. XE is not the official rate. For example I bought most of my dinar from Xchange of America, they are showing 740 IQD to 1 USD but selling 25K notes uncirculated for 1,350 USD per million.


    I would take XE with a grain of sand and always confer with the official CBI site to find the price of the IQD. Riots and protestors don't even play into the picture at this point because if they had the exchange rate would have gone in the other direction. Riots and protestors are mad because Iraq is corrupt and they want the corruption stopped. You see where that got them, in the wrong direction for their currency. Besides the last round of riot, not the current one, was more than likely a setup by Iran. But we won't get into that.

    I would tend to think that the site for the Central Bank of Iraq trumps XE considering that is actually the horse's mouth. And to boot the auction was held at the 1460 rate. No let's hope they remove the 3 zeros from the exchange rate soon not go back to the 1190 rate.

    It’s almost laughable from the original poster that asked this. Let me explain it, NO One can exchange anywhere other then inside Iraq period since Iraq is not internationally traded not sure why this question was even asked but it shows the lack of understanding of this investment by so many!! The only way to sell any dinar that you have is either to advertise here on DV, sell it on EBay or have a dinar dealer buy it back from you that’s it all of which will be higher then the 1460 current exchange rate.

    You contradict yourself in your own post. First you state that no one can exchange anywhere other than inside of Iraq, period. Then you state that dinar may be bought and sold by a dinar dealer. That is an exchange by definition of an exchange.

    For a brief moment I freaked out. But then started tap dancing knowing good and well this has been the only movement of the IQD in decades. It has to be something good. They are looking at Biden winning and OPEC being placed firmly back in the drivers seat with a destination of $100 a barrel oil again! 😄😂

    Actually it has been about 9 years. The last move was also in a negative direction from ~1166 to 1190, where it currently stood before this move. At that time Xchange of America was selling 1 million IQD for around 980 USD.

  14. People want to believe the United States is a democracy. The technical answer it is and it isn't. People also tend to think the vote they cast in a general election is directly for President. Your vote that you cast is not for the President no matter what the ballot says. You are casting your vote for a representative who will then cast their vote in the majority for that Candidate. You are voting for someone to represent your vote in a general election. The Electoral College members cast their vote according to the majority of votes cast, except in a few states. Those two states are an exception but not an exception to the rule. Not only your vote matters but where you live matters as well. Every ten years a census is required to be taken. Besides government funding this also goes for the number of members of House of Representatives a state may have and how many electoral college members each state has, based off of the census. It is one of the reasons why the census is so important and one of the reasons why Trump wanted an accounting of US Citizens. I am not re-arguing this issue. This past election a down-ballot candidate won by 12 votes.


    What if those 12 voters said well the President isn't  going to win, so I am not voting. The vote for the person you may not think will win but there are other candidates on the ballot that could potentially benefit from each registered voter. In almost every case our Federally elected officials come from the down ballot pool of candidates. Another reason politicians have made a career out of running for office. Very few candidates at the Federal level have not run for a local or state position. Voting is considered a duty and a right. Every citizen has the right to vote and every citizen has the duty to vote. Rights can be taken away. However, unalienable rights cannot be taken away as the US Constitution have deemed these to come from your Creator (notice I did not say God).  


    A duty is a personal choice that is incumbent upon the citizen to make a choice on whether they will follow through. Jury duty is actually considered a compulsory duty where voting is considered a voluntary duty. Serving in the armed forces is also a voluntary duty. One can sign up to volunteer to be in the armed forces and one can choose what branch they want to serve. It becomes compulsory when there is a draft which is the choice of our duly elected Federal officials. To vote or not to vote is everyone's individual right, duty and choice. It is not compulsory and Congress will never make it a law that people HAVE to vote. Voting is a right, as I have said, and such can be taken away such as felons. The argument with the taking of the vote for people who have committed felons is the belief that people have done their time so they can be considered rehabilitated. If they have been rehabilitated, then why are not the full rights restored to them when their sentence is complete? I proffer that if voting rights are restored then too must all rights be restored including 2nd Amendment rights. Again this is not an argument on rights and duties and their various inflictions, benefits etc. 


    You will never hear me say that if such and such wins he is not my President. (S)He was elected, even though it may not be fair, but the President is to be respected. If it is a President whom I disagree with on a policy basis then I will do what I can to make sure that policy does not succeed. It is futile to say that President is not my President because in the end, that President may have to act on behalf of the entire country not just 70 or 80 million people who voted for him. How many people would have felt differently if Pearl Harbor  was attacked like it was in 1941, today? and the rest of the world were in a major war? Trump would act. I am of firm belief Biden would act and both would act just as did Roosevelt.  One cannot say this President is not my President then expect for government to act for them. While I can say I disagree with the President's policies and actions, I will back the President in such actions when it comes to the whole of the USA on the world stage and in defense of our country. This does not mean I agree on such things as the Paris Accord or the TPP or even the Iran deal. I don't. However, if a time comes where a President I disagree with needs to act in defense of our country, then I will back him unless it is the wrong course of action, for example using nuclear arms. 


    People tend to think the United States was formed on Judiaic and Christian Principles. However those same Principles are found in Greece and  Rome before Judaism and Christianity exists, Even the Founding Fathers who write in the Federalist Papers point to John Locke, Renes DesCartes who influenced John Locke, Greece (Sparta), Rome and others. They may have been men of God but they also saw at a time where the Church was heavily influential in the politics of man that the Church and Government should not both be the governance of man by man. While their religion was influential it was not the cornerstone in which this country was founded. That actually was more to Greece and Rome. Even our architecture and monuments reflects this philosophy as they are heavily Roman and Greek influenced. The reason why God does not appear in our Declaration of Independence is because the Founding Fathers wanted to get away from the influence of the Church at the time who was as much a political and religious zealot as Islam has been. The word Creator in the Declaration of Independence meant that the Founding Fathers wanted to include every true religion (I do not consider ISlam to be a true religion) in our country. This means Christians and Jews and others like the Far East religions like Buddhists and others. This does not mean the Founding Fathers did not believe in God nor did they want their God removed from the State. It only means that they saw the United States as a sanctuary that all men may have a free and open mind to believe as they saw fit and not be constrained by the Church by practicing their beliefs. This did not mean that the State could not have the Ten Commandments on its property nor did it mean we could not open a public meeting without a prayer. Over time it has come to mean that.  Yeah most do not consider me to be Christian although I grew up in a Catholic-Presbyterian household. I have taken communion from both sides. I have beliefs that would have in the past put people on a pile of wood and burned them alive. But hey they burned Joan of Arc alive and she was given her directives directly from God, or she claims. The Church the Pope was major influencer in the State, even the Church of England was a major influencer in the Colonies at the time. The Founding Fathers wanted freedom away from them. And as such put the words "your Creator" in the Declaration of Independence because they wanted you to be free thinker and to be able to practice your beliefs, within the limits of the law, freely without punishment from the State.

    The 22nd Amendment is referring to a DULY elected president. The Democrats have claimed since day 1 that Trump is an illegitimate president making it a non-duly elected president. According to Trumps Attorney, because of the "illegitimate" treatment (including the fake impeachment), Trump could run again. 😎

    If Pres. Trump was not duly elected, no matter what the demoncraps claim or not claim, he would not have been sworn into office. The term DULY means that proper procedure was followed. A non-duly elected President would actually be Biden since there was widespread and systematic election fraud going on in the election. Biden could be considered a non-duly elected President because fraud by its very definition means that proper procedure was not followed, i.e. the changing of the laws by everyone but the legislature. There is nothing to show that President Trump was not a duly elected President other than claims. There is evidence to the contrary of this most recent election. Again just because someone claims there isn't doesn't mean that is the case.
