Adam Montana Weekly 25 May 2016

Recommended Posts

Happy Wednesday my friends!

Ready for something different? I hope so, because that's what you're getting!

This has certainly shaped up to be an interesting week. I am not - I repeat, I am NOT - the kind of person that tosses around rumors. I am very reluctant to post things that could lead to unnecessary speculation or misled considerations. But... perhaps you noticed the site has been down some of this week, and increasingly hard to reach this morning?

It's complicated, but let's start with an explanation of why the site has been having slow page load times and at times has been unreachable.

Those of you that have been part of this community for a long time probably remember a few other times that this has happened.

I take this community very seriously... the trust that the members (especially the VIPs) have put in me is enormously important to me.

As such, DinarVets.com lives on a bulletproof, titanium, state-of-the-art, no expense spared platform, and is mirrored onto a secret duplicate setup that is completely unreachable until such time as it is needed. Extra efforts are taken by experts to keep things secure and running regardless of pretty much anything other than a zombie apocalypse... in which case we won't be worried about dinar, because zombies eat brains and don't care about your bank account. :D

Even so, there is no such thing as "invulnerable", and we've been under attack for about a week now.

I actually started noticing some unusual "probes" as early as a couple months ago, which was a little strange to me because it coincided with the recent Parliament shakeup... but nothing major happened, so I just kept an eye on it and doubled my normal security routine.

I'm glad I did.

As of today, the dinarvets.com server is under HEAVY attack. I won't get into the nerdy details, but I do want you to understand what's happening. It's called a "Denial of Service" attack. What the attackers do is pretty simple - they hijack a network of computers (dozens, hundreds, thousands, or more) and each computer simply reaches out to the website.

These attackers are sometimes just bored kids, or sometimes they are slightly more sophisticated groups that have political or some kind of agenda to carry out, and sometimes they are paid to do it by whatever entity has the money and the reason. 

This is not a "bored kiddy" attack... this is a big one.

Here's a short explanation of what is happening:

Think about your old rotary phone. If you were on the phone when someone called, they got a "busy" signal. Today, we have "call waiting" - so you'll get a notification that someone is calling. But what if another person calls? They might get sent straight to voicemail, because we don't have "call waiting-waiting-waiting". Now take it one more step... what if 100 people called you at the exact same time? Maybe they will all get sent to voicemail, but at some point the voicemail system is going to get bogged down. And that's exactly what this kind of "attack" does - it bogs down the system, and makes the site unresponsive.

We have things in place to prevent hackers from getting your info, so don't worry about that. Anyone who's ever paid for VIP - your information was received by one of the largest and most sophisticated companies in existence, so really all we have to worry about is if we will be able to read the weekly chat now, or maybe we have to wait 5 minutes and reload the page because the Attackers are playing a game of "ding dong ditch". No members of this site are at risk for identity theft due to this attack. Really, it's just an inconvenience to those of us who want to log on and read the latest dinar news.

But let's get back to the beginning... and I want to share something. This is big. 

It might be really big.

Who remembers what was happening the last two times DinarVets.com came under heavy attack?

I'm not a conspiracy theorist. I try to stay away from those things! But facts are facts, and here's what was happening... I remember them well, because when it rains it pours...

We've had 2 major attacks in the past. One was when Chapter 7 was unfolding... and the other was when Abadi was first getting into office and making HUGE changes.

And now... NOW we are watching a restructure of Parliament and all kinds of other exciting news... suddenly dinarVets.com is under attack again? I have to wonder, "WHO would want us to be denied access to dinarvets.com at this particular time"?

I have my theories, but they really aren't important. The "how" and "why" and "who" doesn't matter. What DOES matter is the "what", and the last couple times we saw this, the "what" was a pretty big deal!

WHAT is happening right now is a big deal! I really hope that this attack on DinarVets.com is a sign of something coming. And if history repeats itself, as it sometimes does... we are ready.

If you're not in VIP yet, you really should get in. If you are in VIP, but know someone who isn't - get them a gift certificate. Here's the links:

1. If DinarVets.com is up: http://dinarvets.com/links/upgrade

2. If DinarVets.com is under attack, use this link: http://iqd.me/l/order

Oh! One more really important thing I want you all to know is this: Regardless of what is going on with the attack on dinarvets.com, our VIP info/emails/notifications and even the regular emails are all completely separate from this particular server/site/system. The awesome thing about this is that IF we are under attack right now because something big is about to pop... they can't keep us down. 

I'll send out an email shortly, to those of you on the newsletter list, just to prove that point.

Like I said... they can't keep us down!

And that, my friends, is a good feeling.

I'll be in touch soon. VIPs, you should get an email from me tomorrow. :twothumbs: 

GO RVVVVV!!!!!!!!!!

:tiphat: 

 

Thursday morning update: We have the attack completely under control at this point, but we decided to make a couple upgrades on the site since the hood was open, so to speak. 

WHILE YOU WAIT: Get a VIP subscription for yourself or a loved one! Here are the direct links:

5 Month VIPhttps://goo.gl/bro2OR

LIFETIME PLATINUM VIPhttps://goo.gl/mXZfSR

With the Platinum VIP, you NEVER have to make a renewal payment. You get your Certificate now. You are LOCKED IN with everything I have set up.

Warmest RV Regards,

- Adam Montana

GRRRR! Sorry, that happens anytime there's an upgrade in progress, and is completely unrelated to the ATTACK issues I was talking about before. 

Good news! Your VIP is fully active, currently until 10/11/2016

I have no idea why my post came out three times.....just wanted to let you all know, I haven't gone to happy hour and I'm not drunk yet.  Perhaps this website attack is some serious stuff, but hope you all love my enthusiasm! :cheesehead:

Adam, I so appreciate that you are a straight shooter and don't lead us on rabbit trails by dangling carrots.  So, I am excited to see your continued enthusiasm of the current happenings in Dinar Land.  One can truly hope we are closing in on the beloved RV!!

Hi Adam... and all!  Is anyone else currently having problems getting to the forums?  I actually had to click on the most recent post in this thread to get here.  Also, almost all of the activity (other than this thread) is showing as two or more hours old.  When I go to "Activity", I get an error message... so I'm trying all the back doors! LOL  I was able to get to chat, but no one was around.  I also was able to post my Powerball numbers about an hour ago... had to use the back door there too!

Hi Adam

Thanks for the extra effort to keep the site sailing smoothly. Don't know what we all would do without our weekly RV info, I for one wouldn't have a clue as to where to get reliable information on the RV. Thanks for hanging in there for us pal.

And as for the attackers, they would do well to remember, "That which you sow, so shall you reap".

Until the next time, keep up the good work Adam, you are appreciated.

      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!!!!!!!
       
       
       
      - Adam

      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.
       
       
       
      - Adam
       
      P.S. Don't forget about the Weekly Powerball Pool!

      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!!!!!
