JimBake: Look What You Have Done...By Purchasing and Owning Iraqi Dinar
This commentary is dedicated to ALL Dinarians and Dongars!
By purchasing and holding Iraqi Dinar (and vietnamese dong), you have done some amazing things. Hopefully, the following will bring to light just how amazing you truly are.
1) You were willing to face the very real possibility of substantial loss of your hard earned money by purchasing a currency with an uncertain future.
2) You were willing to face likely scorn and ridicule from friends and family as you tried to share your hopes and dreams with them.
3) You provided a vital source of funds to assist a newly developing nation, fresh out of years of dictatorship and war, to help them get their feet back solidly on the ground.
4) You linked your future and the future of your family and community to the future of the country and people of Iraq and Vietnam.
5) You used your own money and not a dime of taxpayer money to make your purchase.
6) You helped send a message of support and commitment to the government and people of Iraq and vietnam... and you sent a message of support to all the troops to help finish the job and purpose they bravely sacrificed to achieve.
7) You endured through months and even years of ups and downs as this incredible global event struggled to completion.
8) You stood together, holding a common goal and desire for yourself and your fellow dinarians. The desire for a better life!
9) You very likely changed the course of the Worlds future by having the courage and fortitude to stay the course throughout this difficult process.
10) You invested wisely in the future of Humanity and your own life!
So, when you receive your rewards, stand proud and salute yourself for your incredible vision and willingness to do what you did! I wonder what you'll do next!
You are Amazing aren't you? :)

Wes Bastie The World is waiting for the Fed to give "O" the green light, to tell Lew and Janet to pull the trigger. We have always been waiting on the same thing. The RV could have happened a year ago before the election drama this spring and summer. That wasn't their plan. The World will likely have to force the issue, as the Fed is used to getting It's own way. There are only two things that can force the issue. One is the what Putin and China are doing, and the other is a massive campaign to share this tremendous opportunity with people that will do something positive with it. The last thing the Fed wants is for the public to know. That has always been the only leverage we have.
Mac > Wes Bastie Yes Wes. The more they wait and delay, the more people find out.

8-28-14 LANDA GLOBAL: We are pleased to report that historic bond closings have begun in earnest in Zurich. Boxes of historic bonds have already been authenticated, and are in the TTM (Trailing Twelve Months) stage now. The official bond redemption period is expected anytime now. Thank You.
8-28-14 Omegaman: The IMF IS to release the funds for H. Bonds tonight...Bonds will be funded...yeah baby. Expect the announcement tonight...the announcement will be for the platforms, from the IMF, that the funds are released...this should trigger everything else to move forward.
This announcement is for the Trading platforms, and will trigger everything...including RV. There will be an announcement, or formal letter that is to be submitted to all the trading platforms for which the Historical Bonds will be used as collateral for projects...I still believe pbx Tuesday...and groups this weekend.
8-28-14 Carden: All central banks and all over the world are on "alert" and have passed that alert down to every bank in their network. The "alert" reads: ATTENTION: PENDING RATE ADJUSTMENT: VND, IQD, RUP, ZIM, USN... and more.
These alerts are for currency exchange centers, primarily, and in big, major banks. There are main locations working with the largest traders for currency. These are in every country. Did you know there is twice as much currency trading volume than trading in stocks and bonds?
I called it a week ago. I haven't changed my mind since then. It's been one unbelievable delay/obstacle after another. Followed by nimble leaps over those same obstacles like a well-trained GOLD-MEDAL winning athlete. I haven't lost my enthusiasm. I've been smiling like every other happy person every day since then with momentary dips. The sustainability is only relative to the news I hear daily. The good news is constant and committed to the very BEST OUTCOME POSSIBLE so how could I not continue to be charged up and confident?
We can agree that this GCR isn't about IRAQ anymore. It's about a global reorganization of the monetary system. It's about the global watershed event about to take place that will rock this world and be the lightening up of all the dark hiding places for financial crimes/theft and improper dealings that have been shielded for far too long. It's about the launch of a rocket ship to the STARS that lifts all of humanity out of poverty. This is what it's all about. AMEN. Bretton Woods meeting is PROOF that changes are HERE NOW
Greetings and Salutations;
You can depend upon the current intensity and push that is
on-going. Many of those who were blocking the progression of all of
these endeavors have recently turned their attention toward finalizing
the shift that is underway. They may not understand the total shift,
the larger overview but they are now aligned and that will make a big
We have been down to the wire for some time now. This has
always been the case, the glitches show up; the show stops and the
engine stalls and the whatevers take over. But then they get that
fixed and it moves forward or rather lurches forward only to get
stopped again and again. That has been the method by which this has
been kept afloat for years. But the work has developed and the lines
of communication have evolved and the blockages removed everywhere.
They are moving this forward. Many significant pieces occurred
this week in the meetings both in China and in USofA. Many. There
should be some significant news breaks and news broadcasts coming
through on all of this. Being on the sidelines, we wait. Just like you
At some level one could say that it will be finalizing this
week. The positives take a while to underscore. There is nothing on
the horizon, now, that does not look to be in our favor....P...
MAJOR NEWS FLASH: ON AUGUST 21, 2014, GRANDFATHER RECEIVED THE
LAST PIECE OF THE PUZZLE ACCORDING TO THE RULES, AND HAS ACHIEVED FULL

Potential Bank Traps with RV
POTENTIAL BANK TRAPS: Several people have asked what the 'traps' might be when you go in to exchange at contract rates. I did a little research and this is the consensus:
1. Do NOT negotiate for a rate higher than the Contract rate, which Tony will announce when the 800 numbers are posted (probably).
2. Do NOT mix currencies in one account; have separate accounts for each currency. Dinar exchanges are tracked differently.
3. ONLY use the currency labels IQN, VNN, ZWN.
4. Say that you are there for 'currency exchange'; do NOT use the words 'cash in'.
5. If at all possible, find a bank that can verify your currency on site; don't let it be sent away for verification. Before you leave, you want to see the money in your account.
6. Ask to see the bank screen so that you KNOW what rate you are getting.
7. Do not ask for $10,000 or more in cash -- that gets reported. Ask for 5-6000, and make it an random number, such as $5,732 (rather than a rounded number).
NOTE: Above all, do NOT go into the bank and say "Tony said..." <joke>
1. If you are paying taxes, make sure to set aside at least 50% right from the start -- maybe more if you live in a state with personal income tax, such as California. Set aside at least half the remainder to create a lifelong income. Then spend from the remaining 25%.
2. Do NOT let the banker have a Power of Attorney over your account, or control your money. YOU must keep control.
3. Do NOT put your money into a brokerage account unless you have complete control to authorize all transactions; you don't want the broker or private banker gambling with your money and making commissions with silly trades.
4. Go to the bank with a list of cashier's checks to pay your major bills and/or deposit in your personal account.
5. Every bank will charge a standard 2% fee on the exchange. Don't attempt to haggle about this. However, feel free to negotiate every other fee or service charge! The bank wants your money to play with, so they will be flexible about fees.

Mnt Goat RV Progress Aug 20/14
Folks Iraq has finalized their government and pushing for global RV announcement before Monday if USA does not stop it again with legal ramifications to follow. Tami
I will be posting RV Bank training for Canadians shortly. USA RV Bank updates www.tntdinar.com Bank training www.tntsuperfantastic.com www.tntsuperfantastic.org www.tntsuperfantastic.net
8-20-14 Mtn. Goat: Hi Everyone. I come to you today to give you a recent update on the election process and how this relates towards the international rollout of the IQD for Iraq.
Note: If you have not read my previous news letter from Monday 8/18, I encourage you to first read it (LINK). Today's news letter, as in all my news letters, is a continuation of the ongoing saga of the IQD RV process.
Today is Wednesday 08/20 and all the news still looks very encouraging that next week’s window of 8/25 – 8/31 is shaping up to be an excellent window to hear of the announcement of the completed government of Iraq.
I will add that no one really knows a date of the RV we can only speculate from the information we receive. But I have been informed it will coincide closely to the announcement of the new government.
On Monday I sent out some news referring to a high possibility that we would hear of an announcement of a fully formed Iraq government within a few weeks. This is proving still to be the case.
So on Tuesday my source in Iraq revealed that Prime Minister-designate Haider Abadi has stated once again he plans to present his new government (cabinet) to parliament on Monday 8/25, after much progress in the political negotiations to form his new council of ministers.
The new president Fuad Masum and the USA government had stressed days ago the need to form the next government quickly according to the specified constitutional ceiling and it looks like all efforts are being made to comply.
Remember that the prime minister-designate Haider al-Abadi, announced last week, he would reject any candidate of the political blocs for ministerial positions, unless a competent, integrity and good experience, as well as a program that will manage him and his ministry."
Committees were put together from each of the blocs to research and submit possible candidates. This system seems to have sped up the process for this election year and so we will probably see the ministers very soon.
According to my political sources in Iraq, the intention was to reduce the government of Iraq and make it home to about 20-25 ministers instead of 35 as in the current government.
Also the fight against financial and administrative corruption is and must be a priority for the new government, and the sheer size of the rampant corruption in the government is taking longer than expected to correct.
This corruption is hampering any progress of finding appropriate candidates for the security ministry. This was the major bottleneck but should be resolved this week. A few good candidates are now being considered.
I have also heard officially about full amnesty being given to many of the political prisoners, since, if you recall these are the political rivals of Maliki as he convinced the USA to lock them in prison as terrorist.
This too has given him the edge over these years especially in the 2010 election since his main competition had been removed. These leaders are now being released and will be used in this new government.
I think this governmental cleanup was all a wakeup call for all the politicians and is way overdue. It is like starting with a clean slate and moving forward. I like it ! It shows us that they are now serious to get down to business in running their government. All very good signs for us.
Recent CBI News
Seems whenever there is a high probability that the currency reform project could get kick started once again, the CBI makes an announcement. So once again they have come out with a statement this week saying “likely that the coming weeks will see an improvement over the value of the dinar against the dollar, and this will enhance the confidence of the world with it”.
The Finance Committee also has confirmed early this week that 2014 will see the deletion of zeros from the Iraqi currency, are described: The deletion of the zeros will be in coordination with the Central Bank.
Nori Al-Maliki News
Some of you are still emailing me about the outgoing prime minister Nori Al-Maliki and wondering why he is still in the news since he is supposedly gone. I will answer this rather firmly because you still do not listen to me when I tell you. Read my lips if you don’t understand English.
STOP READING ALL THE GARBAGE OUT THERE!
Maliki is still the provisional prime minister until the new government is formed, ratified by parliament and announced. He still has a council of ministers and continues to keep the government running.
Someone has to do it. Who else is going to do it? Abadi is only the designate prime minister until his council is formed and seated. Abadi is way to busy putting together the government now than to be running it. The election process is set up to function this way.
It is debatable as to how good of a job Maliki is doing but that is the process. He has already moved out of his residence and his office that was provided to him by the government. He is now under 24/7 guard due to a recent (factual) assassination attempt he made on Abate’s life (the designate PM) and an attempt that was made on his life by one of his bodyguards.
Talks of him leaving the country may be factual but he comes back just as you would after a visit to someone you know. He is an opium addict and a drug dealer. I imagine he goes somewhere for a fix. He still has freedom of movement but is being watched and guarded.
He will stand trial for his crimes there is no doubt about that. His crimes are just too horrendous and heinous to overlook. He will be used as an example for the rest of the world to witness when the time comes.
The negative impacts on Iraq and the delaying of the 5 year reconstruction plan by 8 years is just too great to overlook. We are talking about one man delaying global progress. Yes – one man did all this! We should have had the RV, been to the banks and built our new homes by now. Iraq should already have HCL and this great prosperity just around the corner.
Do you really understand the negative impact this man has had? The trust and potential for greatness he floundered and carelessly threw away! Countless lives lost. Who do we blame for this?
I do not want to blame anyone since you can’t predict how people will behave but I will say helping to seat this man as prime minister and supporting (backing him up) throughout the entire 8 years has been a major blunder on the part of the USA.
Especially in 2012, when president Talibani, Allawi and Sadr stcvked the deck in their favor and pleaded with the USA to drop all support of him and let them get rid of him.
You can do the research yourself on this man. I have talked about him in many of my past news letters. Please go back and re-read them.
Funny how we have short memories and some of us are determined to stick by this man no matter what. I will just say one final comment about Nori Al-Maliki. If the devil himself was ever in the flesh this would be him.
So today’s news is all very, very good news. Nothing but very good news to report.
What can we expect next?
So the clock is still ticking once again and the new PM now has just 21 days (about 3 weeks) remaining to make the announcement of his fully formed new government to the world. We all expected to hear of the announcement this weekend or even later this week but it did not happen so far.
We now know why. Once Abadi began his work on putting together the new government he discovered that the effort was much more than anticipated and there was much more “house cleaning” needed from the old administration. Currently too I am hearing a major obstacle with the selection of the new Security minister. This is now being resolved and a candidate should be selected by the end of the week.
Abadi is optimistic that the new government will be formed by end of this week and early new week plans to make the formal announcement to the world.
Then when can we expect the RV?
All I will say is what I have been saying all along. Since the prime minister is now selected (the third of the three presidents) we wait for his council (or cabinet) to be fully formed and a formal announcement to the public that the Iraq government is now fully formed. Many of you asked me if a formal, public announcement is necessary and the answer is a big fat YES.
I do whole heartedly believe that the RV rollout will be completed just prior to or just after this announcement. We are once again in a very sweet spot to see the RV see something significant happen early next week. Be patient it is coming.
I want to emphasize once again this final announcement of the IQD going international will not happen until the USA feels the Iraq government is stable, non-sectarian and is a functional government.
This is has been the plan all along. They may have wavered a bit on how the plan was implemented but the overall plan guidelines have not changed.
Peace and Luv To Ya All. Mnt Goat
UU8577 - “Consolidation and Cleanup Time”
I come to you today to give you a recent update on the election process and how this relates towards the international rollout of the IQD for Iraq.
Note: If you have not read my previous news letter from Sunday 8/17 (LINK), I encourage you to first read it. Today's news letter, as in all my news letters, is a continuation of the ongoing saga of the IQD RV process.
Today is Monday 08/18 and all the news still looks very encouraging that these next couple weeks are shaping up to be an excellent window to hear of the announcement of the completed government of Iraq.
Yesterday I sent out some news referring to a high possibility that we would hear of an announcement of a fully formed Iraq government by Sunday.
It did not happen and I will tell you why. The news is all good and you gotta luv what they are doing to clean up this government.
So what I have found out is that Abadi, (the new prime minister who has the mandate to form the new Iraq government), did state last week that he could complete the new government soon and probably would announce his new council by Sunday. As we all know this did not happen. So what is the hold up? I am going to tell you.
With Maliki and his goons gone and a new prime minister at the helm, we are now witnessing a total reworking of the 35 ministries under the prior 8 years of Iraq government. In other words that is much more “house cleaning” than originally thought necessary.
For instance Abadi decided to reduce the number of ministries to 25 after the cancellation and merging some of them. Right out of the starting gate he announced we was eliminated 2 of the 3 deputy PM MPs. These were entirely unnecessary and a waste of money. Ministries must now justify their existence or they are eliminated or combined with other ministries.
He also decided to change the manner in which the ministers are selected and not use the previous method of the selecting by nomination by the blocs of favoritism (or in Maliki’s case via paying bribes for their position). Instead he is screening the candidates based on knowledge and experience. He is attempting to do something amazing. He is eliminating favoritism, bribes and attempting to get fully qualified people in the positions that will be able to successfully fill the role and perform the job.
Gee Wiz! What a novel idea! ….lol….
Another cleanup he is doing in trimming their salaries using the paid security by the government as perk not previously counting in as part of benefits to them. Other changes in a making some strict parliamentary procedure recommendations to deal with absent members and this could result in stiff monetary fines, penalties or perhaps even loss of PM position in future. This I can see is way overdue since many of the stalling over the last 4 years has been lack of quorum and ability to even hold a productive session in parliament. This could be used (and was used) as a political tactic many times in the past and is one of the reasons we have seen bills take months to get reviewed and debated, yet nothing ever gets passed.
I think this was all a wakeup call for the government and it is way overdue. I like it ! It shows us that they are now serious to get down to business in running their government. All very good signs for us.
So today’s news is all very, very good news. Nothing but very good news to report.
What can we expect next?

Nafta Free Trade Destroys Economies Aug 20/14
NAFTA Is 20 Years Old – Here Are 20 Facts That Show How It Is Destroying The Economy
By Michael Snyder, on August 14th, 2014
Back in the early 1990s, the North American Free Trade Agreement was one of the hottest political issues in the country. When he was running for president in 1992, Bill Clinton promised that NAFTA would result in an increase in the number of high quality jobs for Americans that it would reduce illegal immigration. Ross Perot warned that just the opposite would happen. He warned that if NAFTA was implemented there would be a "giant sucking sound" as thousands of businesses and millions of jobs left this country. Most Americans chose to believe Bill Clinton. Well, it is 20 years later and it turns out that Perot was right and Clinton was dead wrong. But now history is repeating itself, and most Americans don't even realize that it is happening. As you will read about at the end of this article, Barack Obama has been negotiating a secret trade treaty that is being called "NAFTA on steroids", and if Congress adopts it we could lose millions more good paying jobs.
It amazes me how the American people can fall for the same lies over and over again. The lies that serial liar Barack Obama is telling about "free trade" and the globalization of the economy are the same lies that Bill Clinton was telling back in the early 1990s. The following is an excerpt from a recent interview with Paul Craig Roberts...
I remember in the 90′s when former Presidential candidate Ross Perot emphatically stated that NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) would create a giant “sucking sound” of jobs being extracted away from the U.S. He did not win the election, and NAFTA was instituted on Jan. 1, 1994. Now, 20 years later, we see the result of all the jobs that have been “sucked away” to other countries.
According to an article by the Economic Policy Institute on 1/3/14:
“Clinton and his collaborators promised that the deal would bring “good-paying American jobs,” a rising trade surplus with Mexico, and a dramatic reduction in illegal immigration. Considering that thousands of kids are pouring over the border as we speak, well, how’d that work out for us?
Many Americans like to remember Bill Clinton as a "great president" for some reason. Well, it turns out that he was completely and totally wrong about NAFTA. The following are 20 facts that show how NAFTA is destroying the economy...
#1 More than 845,000 American workers have been officially certified for Trade Adjustment Assistance because they lost their jobs due to imports from Mexico or Canada or because their factories were relocated to those nations.
#2 Overall, it is estimated that NAFTA has cost us well over a million jobs.
#3 U.S. manufacturers pay Mexican workers just a little over a dollar an hour to do jobs that American workers used to do.
#4 The number of illegal immigrants living in the United States has more than doubled since the implementation of NAFTA.
#5 In the year before NAFTA, the U.S. had a trade surplus with Mexico and the trade deficit with Canada was only 29.6 billion dollars. Last year, the U.S. had a combined trade deficit with Mexico and Canada of 177 billion dollars.
#6 It has been estimated that the U.S. economy loses approximately 9,000 jobs for every 1 billion dollars of goods that are imported from overseas.
#7 One professor has estimated that cutting the total U.S. trade deficit in half would create 5 million more jobs in the United States.
#8 Since the auto industry bailout, approximately 70 percent of all GM vehicles have been built outside the United States. In fact, many of them are now being built in Mexico.
#9 NAFTA hasn't worked out very well for Mexico either. Since 1994, the average yearly rate of economic growth in Mexico has been less than one percent.
#10 The exporting of massive amounts of government-subsidized U.S. corn down into Mexico has destroyed more than a million Mexican jobs and has helped fuel the continual rise in the number of illegal immigrants coming north.
#11 Someone making minimum wage in Mexico today can buy 38 percent fewer consumer goods than the day before NAFTA went into effect.
#12 Overall, the United States has lost a total of more than 56,000 manufacturing facilities since 2001.
#13 Back in the 1980s, more than 20 percent of the jobs in the United States were manufacturing jobs. Today, only about 9 percent of the jobs in the United States are manufacturing jobs.
#14 We have fewer Americans working in manufacturing today than we did in 1950 even though our population has more than doubled since then.
#15 Back in 1950, more than 80 percent of all men in the United States had jobs. Today, only 65 percent of all men in the United States have jobs.
#16 As I wrote about recently, one out of every six men in their prime working years (25 to 54) do not have a job at this point.
#17 Because we have shipped millions of jobs overseas, the competition for the jobs that remain has become extremely intense and this has put downward pressure on wages. Right now, half the country makes $27,520 a year or less from their jobs.
#18 When adults cannot get decent jobs, it is often children that suffer the most. It is hard to believe, but more than one out of every five children in the United States is living in poverty in 2014.
#19 In 1994, only 27 million Americans were on food stamps. Today, more than 46 million Americans are on food stamps.
#20 According to Professor Alan Blinder of Princeton University, 40 million more U.S. jobs could be sent offshore over the next two decades if current trends continue.
For much more on this, please watch the video by Charlie LeDuff posted below. It is well worth a few minutes of your time...
So if NAFTA is so bad for American workers, then why don't our politicians just repeal it?
Well, unfortunately most of them are not willing to do this because it is part of a larger agenda. For decades, politicians from both major political parties have been working to slowly integrate North America. The eventual goal is to turn North America into another version of the European Union.
Just check out what former general and CIA chief David Petraeus had to say about this...
“After America comes North America,” Petraeus said confidently in answering the question about what comes after the United States, the theme of the panel discussion. “Are we on the threshold of the North American decade, question mark? I threw that away — threw away the question mark — and boldly proclaimed the coming North American decade, says the title now.” He also boasted about how the three economies have been put “together” over the last 20 years as part of the “implementation” of the North American Free Trade Act.
The “highly integrated” forces of Canada, the United States, and Mexico, Petraeus continued, will become the world’s powerhouse for energy and science. “There are four revolutions that are ongoing at various levels in each of the countries but foremost in the United States,” said the former CIA chief, who now serves as chairman of the KKR Global Institute. “The energy revolution is the first of those, which has created the biggest change in geopolitics since the rise of China since 1978.” The other “revolutions” include IT, manufacturing, and life sciences, which, “as highly integrated as they are, allow you to argue that after America comes North America,” he added.
