UU6814 –“Under Pressure – Now Going After High Officials on Corruption Charges” by Mnt Goat

Hello Everyone,

Lots of big news to report today. I am sorry but the news letter is very long again. I just can’t help it either. I do select only the most juicy articles to bring to you.

Believe me I could have written a book today for you. It has been an interesting weekend about this Iraqi dinar RV and so I want to tell you about it.

In my last news letter dated 10/2 I asked the question if the relative quietness of this past week could be the calm before the storm. Was the spigot about to open and pour out some juicily news to us?

So the spigot did open up. Today I am going to present a case to you that Iraq, under pressure from the citizens and the religious authorties, is now beginning the progress of going after high government officials on corruption charges.

We all knew this would begin someday and so the day is now here.
….

There is also some great CBI news to share today with you and an updated on the Investment law. I have included the articles below.

Today’s News

Today is Monday October 5th and still no RV.  So today I want to bring you the Iraq dinar RV news in its truest sense. No hype, No rumors just the facts.

Let us begin today’s news with the major theme of the recent headlines from many articles.

The overall theme is corruption and the needed pressure to fully implement the reforms and do them fairly across every aspect regardless of seniority, wealth or ranking position. This is what the protestors now want.

They cry out and ask “why have you not prosecuted the “culprits”. “,  meaning the instigators of this corruption? Seems upto now the government has only gone after the “little” guy.  This at least is the perception of the average citizen.

So now even  the religious authorities speak out and support what the people want. So this is what they are going to get. This is the momentum Abadi wanted and needed to go forward  fully to the end with his reforms on corruption. Get ready its coming.

So the golden nugget of this week is to finally bring us a conclusion to what we have been waiting for the most for so long – the trial and the sentencing of the political menace Nori al-Maliki  and his final demise. Will this finally happen?

To many of these alleged corrupt Iraqi officials,  the government has already suspended their passports and put them under house arrests. It is round up time…..lol….lol….

But do they need the Accountability and Justice law first before they begin these trials? Some say this is the next step and so I believe it too.

Just in case you forgot I will remind you once again of the fact that I have said repeatedly told you that “there will be no RV until Iraq deals with Maliki and the Iranian political influence in their affairs”. So another item being taken care of getting us that much closer to the political stability needed to give us the RV.

The USA and UN have told Iraq either they will deal with Maliki or Iraq must. Iraq stated they would do it their way and this way took much longer but creates much more political stability.

So the plan – The citizens had to be slowly prepped and the corruption publicly exposed.  Iraq agreed to a timeline and this timeline has expired. Either way Maliki must go and will go shortly.

Please read the lovely articles below. They make me jump for joy!  The weeks ahead are going to be VERY interesting.

[Update; Fighting ISIS / DAASH]

Okay so where is Mnt Goat going with this article below?

I am presenting this article to help you understand the position that the Anbar / Mosul region is in. There have been many articles over these salaries in the recent past.

Did you know one reason the government stopped paying the salaries in these regions is due to the terrorists?

They apparently have been forcefully taking the money from the citizens once paid and in some cases the citizens join the organization willingly an would forfeit their pay to ISIS. So to stop the flow of these funds to ISIS they simply stopped the payments. Recently there were street crowds cheering in these rallies for their money.

So let me clarify. These rallies were not about the RV I can assure you. It was about these promised payments.
….

These so called intel “gurus” want you to believe something different to try to connect these events for their own proof of a pending RV.  I wish they would stop confusing the facts. It was instead just for the payment of their pensions and salaries as promised by the government.

So now they got paid. So this may be an indication of the stability of these regions or did they pay them to prevent more from joining ISIS ?  We wait to see.

[Update: on CBI]

Okay now we get to the second part of the BIG News of the day, some golden nuggets to share with you with two articles below.

Following this section on the CBI update I talk about the Investment law and how they now plan to vote on the law in parliament on Tuesday 10/6.

Does it make sense then that they would also now roll out billions of dollars for the development of the banking sector at about the same time? Seems they really are trying to kick start this economy or “activate the private sector” as many want to call it.

Also I want to reinforce something to you now once again. DR Sinan Shabibi must come back to manage the CBI officially before any RV can occur. I have stated this in the past and I am firmly standing once again behind this statement. The new prime minister has asked DR Shabibi to come back to the CBI and DR Shabibi gave him his answer. This took place months ago. Now we are seeing Abadi finally begin to address the CBI an clean it up.

So this will clear the path thus allowing the governor of the CBI complete autonomy to manage the delegated responsibilities as in the CBI charter. I am now hearing we might even see Dr Shabib come back this week as they are planning to make a formal announcement of his return as heading up the CBI (officially) once again.

Do you think he may pick up the progress on the currency reform from where he left off in 2012? It is very possible this may occur so be ready for some surprises in the next couple weeks. We might just see the new coins and  lower denominations launched very soon.

I find it also funny how economists should come out now, once again and talk about the life span of the 3 zero notes and how they must be replaced soon in the project to delete the zeros. Is this coincidental?

So what do you think he will do once Dr Shabibi is back at the helm? What is the main responsibility of the CBI according to their charter –  Stabilize the dinar exchange rate, manage the monetary policy and manage the reserves. 

All of these responsibilities have not been fulfilled correctly under the proxy governor, as set up by Maliki as they were not the intended goal of this proxy placement. We have see the exchange rate fluctuate randomly and almost uncontrollable over the last couple years. We have see almost 30 billion dollars depleted from the CBI reserves. We have see a complete postponement of the project to delete the zeros. All these trends must be reversed and will be reversed.

NAJIB: CENTRAL BANK ALLOCATES BILLION DOLLARS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE BANK SECTOR

[Update: On Reform Laws]

I have some amazing nuggets of information for you today on the status of some projects in regards to the reforms. First let me say that the Investment law is going to be voted on this week. Hurray! Iraq really needs this law. This law goes way back years ago, when Iraq had their multi-national investment seminar. Resulting from this seminar were many of these recommendations made to Iraq. They are finally going to implement them.

So now this opens the door to the private sector. A better way to say it is “activating the private sector” as many like to use this term. It is about to begin and I am jumping for joy. This did not have to take place prior to an RV however we are glad to see it since it shows us the commitment of the GOI to moving forward towards creating a sound economy which could only mean they would have to RV at some point very soon after activating this law.

So here are some basic points of interest in this law:

I quote from the article- “supports the single window so that there will be delegates from government agencies have the powers to grant approvals for investment projects, and to facilitate access to land for the establishment of investment projects and encourage the population to expand beyond the basic design, and encourage Iraqis and foreign investors after participating with Iraqis by giving them soft loans, bound to be a ratio achievement of 25 percent and guaranteed by the project.”

Latest Update – Parliament is now telling us the draft investment law will be voted on through the House of Representatives session on Tuesday 10/6.

We are still waiting for the National Guard law, Three Presidencies bill and Amnesty law to be passed in parliament. All of these laws have had second readings.

In conclusion I just want to make something very clear to all. So why now is everyone watching for these reform laws? Why now have you finally come to a conclusion that there might be some “meat” in the articles after all?

Could it be because you lost your other so called “secret” sources or simply you can no longer trust their info since they have been proven over and over again to be misinformed and lead you down a path of foolishness and hype every time? I have to say I told you so. I told you so !

I though many said Mnt Goat was crazy and these article did not matter? I thought you said all these laws were all done already?  Of course this is because many of you are simply lazy and do not want to take the time to read articles and study what  is really happening in Iraq. You can read can’t you?

So once again I will baby-sit all you so called “gurus” and try to help you understand the truth as I know the overall plan and I can see it being executed. No – I  refuse to tell you the overall plan as it is bigger than you can imagine and probably willing to understand anyhow. If I were to tell you then you would only take it, abuse the information and use it for your own purposes to hype it up anyway. Too bad it must be this way.

I will say the plan is NOT about some foolish nonsense of a GCR (global currency reset). I have had many conversations with IMF representatives and they all tell me this if foolishness and they have been working to reset the financial arena now since 2008 and it will continue.

Currencies revalue each and everyday and some currencies will adjust too in the SDR basket to coincide with any significant value of the IQD or any currency in the basket. It is a slow process and just because you want or need an RV today will not make it reality. Sorry! Stop making up stories about this “GCR” as it is getting real boring.

Till next time…. Auf Wiedersehen!

Peace and Luv To Ya All,
Mnt Goat
