This week's update is was delayed due to LGD's recent post here.

 

*** Update - Here is the weekly!***

 

Hey Hey Hey It's Thursday!
 
Good morning DinarVets members, and welcome to the most 
recent weekly update on the Iraqi Dinar. I always work my tail 
off to get these things up on Wednesday, as early as possible, 
but thanks to the hard work of one of our members (LGD) this 
week's update had to be postponed.
 
I sincerely hope you've been following along over the last few 
weeks, but we all know that some of you were on romantic 
getaways in Fiji or on crazy submarine adventures through the 
catacombs of the New York sewer system or maybe you just 
forgot to turn on your internet, so let me give you a very quick 
refresher!
 
Regarding the Dinar, I haven't had much to say in about a month, 
and that remains unchanged. We've been on stand-by for the 
HCL, and we remain on stand-by. However, that doesn't mean 
this amazing community has been sitting idle!
 
In fact, quite the opposite. If you're new here, I encourage you 
to prepare yourself for some powerful feelings.
 
Here at DinarVets, we've always encouraged selfless actions 
and a spirit of giving. That may surprise a lot of you, since most 
people that are looking for news on the Dinar are really just 
wondering "Am I rich yet? When will MY dinar revalue??!"
 
And a lot of other sites out there are all about that... in fact, I 
can't remember the last time any of the other dinar sites held a 
fundraiser to benefit anyone other than the site owners.
 
That is NOT true for us here at DinarVets. We've raised many 
THOUSANDS for many good causes. Haiti, our Vets, Katrina, 
Breast Cancer Awareness, and more... I lost count. Those of you 
that have been with us for the long haul KNOW that we've done 
a lot of good for people in need... and right now we are in a unique 
position to do something really important.
 
You might have heard about Tropical Storm Erika recently. It 
went through the Caribbean, and although it's not in the news 
this week... it almost wiped out a complete country island.
 
Yeah, it's old news now, but it's not a dead issue.
 
The island of Dominica was obliterated, and is STILL devastated... 
 
... in fact, it's believed that the island was set back at least 20 years.
 
Have you seen this on the news in the last week?
 
I'm guessing "NO", because it's 'old news'... but I promise you 
that it is NOT 'old news' to the people of Dominica, who are 
struggling for food, clean water, and just plain HELP!
 
Over the last couple weeks, I've talked about this... and thanks 
to the help of some amazing members here, we've been able to 
work out a majority of the logistics to doing something URGENTLY 
important... something that I haven't seen ANY other group even 
trying to do.
 
You are part of this, and you should be proud! This is something 
that I haven't seen done before, so maybe we're pioneers on this
kind of effort... but that means nothing. What is important is how 
our efforts will help people and what we are doing. Let's be very 
specific: We are going to ship a container of food and supplies to 
Dominica, and we are going to receive nothing in return.
 
I may have been a little quiet on the forums recently, and that's 
because I've been kicking some serious tail figuring out how to 
best focus our efforts and our money.
 
After talking to multiple churches and other organizations in this 
poor country, I can tell you a couple things with absolutely zero 
hesitation.
 
1. They don't want money - they want SUPPLIES.
 
2. Although there isn't any dedicated group focused on helping 
DOMINICA specifically... we CAN and WILL make a difference 
for these people!
 
So here's the deal. The longer this sits, the colder it gets, and 
the less these people will get. It's not in the news anymore, it's 
cold and stale... but for the people living it, it's NOWHERE NEAR 
"stale" - please get involved with us!
 
Our goal is $20,000. Click the link below and contribute whatever 
you can afford, and be PROUD that you are part of this amazing 
community.
 
Here's the current link to donate: http://goo.gl/VIuNeb
 
Just add the amount you want to chip in. If you want to donate $500,
enter 50 then update it.
 
(I'm working diligently on a mod to the forum that will show our 
progress. Until that's complete, I'll just update the number manually.
This matter is too time sensitive to delay!)
 
Once we reach the goal, I am personally going to be responsible 
for a majority of the operation. If I have to go load the container 
myself, I WILL. Your money is going to go to provide food and 
necessities for the people of DOMINICA. 
 
You might wonder why we've put so much work into this... can't 
we just donate to an established charity and let them do the work?
 
I wish we could... but I can't find one organization that is committed 
to helping the people of Dominica.
 
The closest organization I found was "foodforthepoor", but upon 
examination I found that they don't have a specific effort for 
Dominica, and the CEO made over $400,000 last year.
 
That doesn't sound like a "charity" or a "non-profit" to me, so I 
can't in good conscience endorse them... but we still want to help, 
so what do we do? 
 
Simple.. we do it ourselves.
 
And that's what we're doing. Click this link: http://goo.gl/VIuNeb
 
This isn't a charity type deal. You don't get a tax break, because I 
have no desire to get into that "game"... If you donate, you're doing 
this out of the goodness of your own heart. And you have my word 
that every penny will go towards the actual costs of getting supplies 
to the people of Dominica.
 
If I have to fly to Miami or wherever to load the crate, I'll do it out 
of my own pocket. If I have to fly to Dominica to make sure the goods
get to the right place, I will pay out of my own pocket. And if any of 
you have a strong back and the ability to join me in this effort, I'll 
consider asking you for help.
 
I'll post pictures of the food and supplies purchased. If you have any 
other ideas on how I can reward you, I will do everything in my power.
 
I am passionate about this effort, and I know there are a lot of you 
that are just as passionate and have already pledged to support it.
 
I'm kicking in the first $1000. Once we reach $10,000, I will kick in 
another $1000 of my own money. 
 
That's how serious I am. If you can only give $5... DO IT!
 
This isn't for me, or you, or your neighbor... this is for people on an 
island that was destroyed, set back 20 years or more, and it's not 
even on the news this week.
 
Get on board and let's do something good. 
 
I'm proud of all of you already, because I know what this community 
does in these situations. 
 
Here's that link: http://goo.gl/VIuNeb

$830 plus my $1000 = $1830

 

Keep it up everyone! :twothumbs:


We are almost 10% there in the first HOUR. I LOVE you people! And Dominica is going to love us too, they just don't know it yet :)


I'm hoping to get the "progress bar" modification done shortly, but for now I will keep updating manually.

FYI everyone... this link http://goo.gl/VIuNeb has been clicked 198 times, but only 23 of you clickers found your credit card.

 

Don't be scared, and you CAN donate more than once! :D

 

The hard part is finding your wallet... the next hard part is pulling out cash... but the best part is the warm fuzzies you get after you donate.

LOL

Don't get me started. LOL

I've been sayin from the beginning if everyone could just do ten

dollars we'd have plenty for the good folk of Dominica.

Adam, as you know I have a checking account, but I don't leave

my savings in it. By tomorrow morning I will have deposited the

Funds that I promised you for my wife and I, and for Snowglobe.

And if there is ANYTHING more I can do please let me know.

Any thoughts about a "soliciting-of-any-kind-is-not-allowed" drive or something like that. Then we get the attention of folks not involved with dinar/iraq speculation.

I am not sure how that works so I am not sure if it is the best option for this.

Just a suggestion.


Ugh, not "no-soliciting". This is one time when the "don't mention other sites and stuff is no bueno.

I was trying to refer to Geux Phund Mi. Sheesh.

Thank you LAMAR whoever you are! Lamar matched my first $1000 :twothumbs:

 

Ok, so right now we've about covered the shipping costs.

 

Now let's fill that container up with goods!

If Iraq could move this efficiently, we'd have RV'd a long time ago! Keep up the good work DV :twothumbs:

      Good morning and HAPPY WEDNESDAY!
       
      These Weekly updates are getting more and more fun for me, because Iraq is moving faster and faster.
       
      The proof is coming daily, hourly... we are looking at an HCL move soon, and that's about all we need right now!
       
      The comments on my Weekly update last week reached 6 pages pretty quickly... here's one of the highlights:
       
       
      That doesn't say "HCL tomorrow, RV by Friday"... but it's pretty darn close!
       
      The new PM Kazzamie is operating efficiently and effectively. We are going to hear some detractions and criticisms, but he is doing a great job in my opinion.
       
      Oil is slightly down this morning, but the overall trend is stable and upwards, currently at $39.24. The IMF is predicting a continuation - I agree.
       
       
       

       
      As we move closer to a successful resolution and completion with HCL, we are going to start hearing a LOT from the "gurus". Some of them will be right, some will always be "full of it", but the closer we get... the louder it's going to seem.
       
      Stay calm, don't let emotions get the best of you, and hang tight... we are closing in.
       
      That's all I'm posting for this morning. 
       
      Go Iraq, go HCL, 
       
      GO RV!!!!!!!

      Good morning, good morning!
       
      This may end up being a "less is more" kind of post.
       
      Reason?
       
      HCL.
       
      I made mention last week that we are in a great spot, and I was hoping to see some movement on the HCL.
       
      @DinarThug, true to form, followed up with this. And this. ("The oil and gas law will be included in the upcoming sessions.") And this. And this! And this. And THIS!!! And... seriously, it just kept going. 
       
      There are times when I find it perfectly acceptable to be calm, sit back, and not get too excited.
       
      This is not that time.
       
      We are looking at constant HCL news, constant mention of monetary change, constant clues that we are on the brink of a monumental event.
       
      I'm ready.
       

       
      === // This next part will be deleted tomorrow: // =====
       
       
      (deleted)
       
      === // The above will be removed tomorrow. You snooze... you lose! // ====
       
      Don't get me wrong... I'm pretty stoked about the stability of bitcoin (and the potential of quite a few other cryptos!), the markets are encouraging (hat tip  to @Pitcher for the great analysis every week!), and a mess of other stuff!
       
      There is just so much going on right now that smells like "HCL", like this and this and this and... it's almost overwhelming.
       
      You can bet the gurus are going to be going nuts here pretty soon.
       
      As a VIP member, you can ignore all of the hype and the nonsense you read or hear, and relax while you watch for my text and email with the official RV announcement.
       
      Hang on to your hats, friends... stay grounded, get in VIP, and enjoy the ride.
       
      Go Kazzammie. Go HCL.
       
      GO RV.

      Good morning and HAPPY WEDNESDAY!
       
      Yes, I'm a bit excited. A big reason is some progress (a breakthrough, in fact!) in OSI (part of our VIP area), details of which are here.
       
      The second reason, which makes the above even sweeter, is the situation surrounding us.
       
      OIL - Oil is a big deal. WTI is stable at just under $40. The previous Iraqi Budget was published at an expected rate higher than $40, and throughout 2019 the price of Oil never quite hit the mark they established for it, yet Iraq was able to sustain operations even at the lower price. Even more impressive is the fact that when Oil went to negative rates recently, Iraq didn't crumble. They survived. And even more impressive than that is the trajectory that this thread is on.
       
      Oil, and Iraq, is on the move. 
       
      The OPEC production cut agreement has made a significant impact on oil and it's place in the world economy. Or, you could say the world economy and the price of oil - they are intertwined. As we move forward in 2020, this is a significant factor in Iraq's ability to increase the value of their financial tools... and we are on the right path.
       
       
       
      There is more going on, including the upcoming IFEX, and that alone would have a lot of Gurus spewing extra saucy verbal diarrhea... the thing is, some of it is bound to come true, even if they don't have a clue what they are talking about.
       
      Why? Because we are getting to that point.
       
      A broken clock is still right twice a day. 
       
      Kazzamie is kicking butt. Seriously - I have a list of over a dozen articles that I love from just the last few days. 
       
      The only thing we are missing right now is the HCL.
       
      And even that "smells" close.
       
      I'll do a discount on VIP by email later this week. It's going to be a limited one, so jump on it quick when you see the email.
       
      I'll be in touch soon!
       
       
       
      GOOOOO RRRRRVVVVV!!!!!!!

      Good morning and Happy Wednesday!
       
      I don't see a need to make this update overly complicated, so... I won't!
       
      OIL: We saw negative prices recently, but it has shot back up to almost $40. This shouldn't come as a surprise - OIL is a necessary commodity, the world isn't going to stop using or needing it anytime soon, and Iraq has a lot. Conclusion: Good for Iraq.
       
      Also OIL: The recent OPEC+ agreement to cut production is partly responsible for the rise in price, but this article confirms what I've been saying for years - Iraq isn't really obligated, or inclined, to play by the "rules". The rules don't really apply to them, so why would they? 
       
      Don't worry - that's a positive thing for us in the speculation game. We want Iraq to use every tool they have, and they are.
       
      GOI (Government of Iraq): Our new guy in office Kazzamie continues to plow through obstacles, protests against the former PMs are fading in the rear view mirror quickly, and the list of accomplishments is getting more impressive by the day. (This thread is at 6 pages and counting, and only started Monday! Solid work, @Mary B)
       
      More GOI: @DinarThug gave some attention to GOI matters, specifically the Budget and government salaries here. My opinion on the Budget is pretty simple: It doesn't have to be announced prior to an RV, the future rate of the Iraqi Dinar doesn't need to be published in it. However, the articles posted in that thread all have a similar "feel" - Kazzamie is weeding through the mess, doing positive things, moving the ship forward.
       
      Even more GOI: @yota691 brought us this article regarding Kazemi, and followed it with a couple of articles regarding a focus on preventing double taxation, referencing Kuwait... If you read the recent explanation of the Iraqi Budget and the Currency Auctions in Iraq, you know that Kuwait and Iraq have a unique situation... some of the details are murky, and hard to put in context, but it stands to reason that Iraq would create loopholes for themselves prior to announcing a significant change in the value of the currency.
       
      Kuwait will likely be first in line with their hands out, due to the legal agreement for reparations and the significant amount that is owed to Kuwait by Iraq.
       
      This stuff isn't rocket science!
       
      (I've linked to this Auctions and Budget post multiple times recently... that's a hint that it's important.  )
       
      Also noteworthy is an article DT posted in last week's Weekly update. If this kind of stuff doesn't put a smile on your face, nothing will!  
       
       
      That's all I'm going to review for this morning - the summary here, if you hadn't figured it out yet (I'm sure you did!), is: POSITIVE with a side of GIDDY-UP.
       
      Go RRRVVVV!!!!!

      Good morning good morning!
       
      Happy Wednesday DinarVets, and welcome to another edition of "The Weekly".
       
      Hopefully it's one of the few remaining.  
       
      2020... what a year so far! I'm not going to comment on the current events because they don't really make a difference on the Iraqi Dinar, and it's a rant that I just don't feel like getting into this morning.
       
      I am curious to see what kind of "spike" we will see in corona cases, though, since there are suddenly gobs of people doing the exact opposite of "social distancing"... my guess is that there won't be any massive spike. Time will tell.
       
      Anyway! We made it through a couple months of invisible plague. Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr has passed. 
       
      After a series of unsuccessful attempts at appointing a Prime Minister, Kazemi (RV Kazammy!!!) is approaching only two short months in office, but he's seriously kicking butt! 
       
      We don't have an HCL agreement (yet), so we don't have an RV. 
       
      But we are getting close. 
       
      Kazammi is possibly the first political figure in a position to have a real chance at getting the HCL to pass.
       
      One of the reasons is stated on Wikipedia fairly well:
       
       
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mustafa_Al-Kadhimi#:~:text=Al-Kadhimi was a vocal,of the Iraqi political parties.
       
      The HCL is a VERY polarized topic. In order for it to come together, a couple of opposing parties have to agree on it... and a neutral party as mediator is the best way to go.
       
      That's our guy Kazzami! 
       
       
       
      These topics will get you up to speed on "the rest of the story" quickly:
       
      1. Kazemi-Kazammi is not a Kurd, he's not "one of them", but the Kurds are supporting him. This has monumental potential:
       
       
      2. Iran has lost their power. The "Iran factor" that has held Iraq back in the past is just that... the past.
       
       
       
       
       
      3. Kazzami has reportedly made his picks, and Parliament should rubber stamp them next week. This is progress.
       
      They may not vote every one of them in, but 80% will be enough to move forward.
       
       
      4. If you want the play-by-play, our fearless and tireless @yota691 has you covered.
       
      (tl;dr version: Parliament is working.)
       
       
      And on that note, my friends, I am wrapping up this Weekly.
       
      Life is good, things in the desert look positive, and GOOO RRRVVVV!!!!!
       
       
       
      - Adam
