Tootsie: BRICS actively pushing for IMF reforms blocked by US: Lavrov 9/2/15 Moscow will push for BRICS to uphold its primary function for which the alliance was forged, to safeguard economic interests of the five nations, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has stressed.

“It was formed to uphold the interests of these “new countries” in the framework of international financial relations, including the IMF and the World Bank. It’s not some whim but a reflection of objective reality,” Lavrov told an audience at a Russian University in Moscow on Tuesday.

The New Development Bank and a monetary fund, launched by the BRICS “will be backed by one hundred billion dollars each, which will allow BRICS to act more independently and effectively in implementing the projects that are deemed mutually beneficial by its association members” said Lavrov.

“Since 1990, the share of the United States, the EU, and Japan in the global GDP has decreased sharply, whereas the share of the BRICS economies, if I’m not mistaken, has grown from 7.7 percent to 22 percent – that is, it has tripled.

The share of BRICS in the global GDP has grown at the expense of a comparable reduction in the share of the United States, the EU and Japan,” Lavrov claimed.

The BRICS bloc is “actively pushing” for IMF reforms while “these decisions are now being blocked exclusively by the United States” charged the Russian Foreign Minister.

As the BRICS countries launched new financial institutions like the $100 billion BRICS Bank, the China-led Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank, and a $100 billion BRICS currency reserve fund, the IMF has once again delayed voting reforms to give emerging countries greater say.

“Reforming the international monetary and financial system to make it more equitable remains high on our list of priorities within BRICS,” Lavrov said on Tuesday.

Tootsie: A statement from the International Monetary Fund in June said the board has postponed the discussion on how to move forward without Washington.

 The board will now take stock of the situation in September. IMF Chief Christine Lagarde had last year hinted at a “Plan B” if the US failed to endorse the reforms by the end of 2014.

 Both the China-led AIIB and the BRICS Bank have been gaining popularity and are seen as a counterbalance to the IMF and World Bank. The US and Japan have not applied for the membership in either of the new development banks.

The IMF reforms will hand more IMF voting powers to BRICS, a long-standing demand of the group and will also reduce the concentration of representative power of Western Europe at the IMF board.

 China and other emerging economies, including BRICS, have long protested against their limited voice at global financial platforms, including the World Bank, International Monetary Fund and Asian Development Bank. The IMF quota reform calls for a 6 per cent shift in quota share to emerging economies.

It will lift China, which still has less voting power than the Benelux countries ( Belgium, Holland and Luxemburg), to the third largest shareholder. Shares for Russia, India and Brazil will also see hefty rise.

Meanwhile, the BRICS foreign Ministers will meet on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in September in New York. Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov confirmed that documents will be adopted at the BRICS ministerial meet in New York that “reinforce our common approaches to key international policy issues, including with regard to the Middle East, and certainly, our negative attitude toward unilateral sanctions”.

{ just in case ~ BRICS is the acronym for an association of five major emerging national economies: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. The grouping was originally known as “BRIC” before the inclusion of South Africa in 2010.}…

Tootsie: ‹@BOBBY› Absolutely ~~ The only way to fly!

chattels: Iran wants an Iraq that is weak but stable, led by a Shi’a-dominated government that can secure its territory but looks to Tehran for guidance.

 This Iraq would be a key client in Iran’s competition against the Gulf States, as well as a lucrative trade partner. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has stated that Iran views Iraq’s security as its own.

Thus, whether the recent nuclear deal leads to increased Iranian expansionism as many fear, or more Iranian moderation as others hope, Iran’s goals for Iraq will almost certainly remain the same, and it will certainly continue to deploy all the tools at its disposal to achieve its aims.

This bodes poorly for U.S. interests in Iraq because Iran enjoys stronger and more sustainable leverage with Iraq’s Shi’a leadership and majority Shi’a population than the United States — leverage which will ultimately bring Baghdad more firmly into Tehran’s orbit.


BOBBY: Tootsie…. we all have to come full circle sometime with this

 BOBBY: The Islamic State’s so-called “province” in the Caucasus region has claimed responsibility for its first official attack since it was established earlier this year. In a statement released online — seen above — and translated by the SITE Intelligence Group, the group says “the soldiers of the Caliphate were able to mount an attack on barracks of the Russian army in southern Dagestan, in Magharamakint village.”

 The raid allegedly “led to the killing and wounding of a number of them.” Afterward, “the soldiers of the Caliphate returned to their positions safely and with spoils, and unto Allah is all praise and gratitude,” SITE’s translation reads.

The Islamic State announced its Caucasus branch in June, but the jihadists had not claimed responsibility for any attacks since then. In an audio message released June 23, the Islamic State’s spokesman, Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, accepted the bayat — oath of allegiance — from jihadists who defected from the al-Qaida-linked Islamic Caucasus Emirate.

 Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, the “Emir of the Faithful,” has “accepted your bayat and has appointed the noble sheikh Abu Muhammad al-Qadarī as Wali [governor] over” the Caucasus, Adnani said at the time.

He continued by calling for all the mujahedeen in the Caucasus “to join” al-Qadari’s “caravan and to hear and obey him in everything except sin.”

It appears that Qadari is Rustam Asilderov, an ICE leader in Dagestan who defected to the Islamic State late last year. One of Asilderov’s known aliases is similar to “Abu Muhammad al-Qadari,” the same name used by Adnani. YouTubeRussian-Chechen fighters in Syria.

Al-Qaida and ICE have tried to stem the tide of defections to the Islamic State, but the loss of three leaders in just more than a year and a half has destabilized ICE’s operations and likely contributed to the Islamic State’s gains in the region.

Russian forces killed ICE’s emir, Magomed Suleimanov, also known as Abu Usman Gimrinsky, in August. Suleimanov was publicly identified as ICE’s new leader just weeks earlier. Also k

chattels: DON’T BOTHER WORKING THROUGH BAGHDAD ALEXANDER VELEZ-GREENSEPTEMBER 2, 2015 The United States is fighting a losing battle with Iran for influence over Iraq’s national government. U.S. interests would be better served by working directly with Iraq’s Kurds and Sunni Arabs.

[06:24:37 PM] chattels: The United States has long relied on its influence in Baghdad to defuse sectarianism in Iraq, fight Sunni extremism, and curb Iran’s regional influence.

But the Iraqi national government has proven to be an unreliable partner in each of these efforts, and America now faces a losing battle against Iran for influence over Iraq’s Shi’a-led central government.

Recognizing this reality may appear tantamount to admitting America’s defeat in Iraq and accepting Iran’s rise to regional hegemony. But this admission is neither a sign of American weakness nor endorsement of Iran’s dominance.

Rather, it is a demonstration of the wisdom required to admit that America’s current ends in Baghdad exceed its means for achieving them. As such, the United States should no longer pursue its aims in Iraq by working primarily through the Iraqi national government.

Working through local allies in Iraq’s provinces — especially the Kurdish Regional Government and key Sunni Arab tribes — offers a far more promising path for achieving U.S. goals in this troubled country. chattels: Read more :…

chattels: As the United States moves away from working exclusively through the government in Baghdad, it should hedge against the possibility that Baghdad will further align itself with Tehran.

To that end, America should begin laying the foundation for lasting relationships with the Kurdish Regional Government and key Sunni tribes. With more American military assistance delivered directly to them, the Kurds and Sunnis can roll back ISIL’s advances in their own territory.

Even more importantly from a foreign policy solvency perspective, if the United States can sustain its relationships with these groups, the Kurdish Regional Government and powerful Iraqi Sunni tribes could eventually become valuable partners for monitoring, and as necessary, challenging Iran’s ambitions throughout the so-called “Shi’a Crescent.”  chattels:…

Pdids:  I very much respect Delta’s wisdom and his opinions as well. However, when it comes to this Bond issues, please allow me to mention that cities in the USA such as Chicago and Detroit as well as Greece sold out their ” JUNK BONDS ” which are rated considerably lower than the B- rated Bond rating of Iraq in a matter of Days, with not as much security to offer to back them as Iraq.

So, this differs slightly with Delta’s opinion. In the case of Iraq , in my opinion, no Country such as Britian or the USA are going to purchase these Bonds without security to back these Bonds without some sort of security to back them up and what does Iraq have……. OIL.

Just my opinion.







Thunderhawk:  US ‘Waging Financial War’ to Shatter Russia’s Economic Power

The agreement between the US and Saudi Arabia to drop global oil prices is a financial war the US is waging against Russia’s economic power, the Mexican newspaper El Universal wrote.

The main weapons in this war are financial resources, investments, stocks, shares and capital.
Even before 2009, developed countries faced a decline in economic growth. In the US, the financial crisis aggravated the situation having provoked a tumble in the real estate market and other industries.

At that time, Russia became the world’s leading energy power having taken control over oil and gas supplies to Europe and Asia. China, in its turn, became the world’s largest holder of international reserves, the article read.

Moscow and Beijing have been implementing major investment projects in Europe and the rest of the world. With the BRICS bank established, the two countries can counter the dominating positions of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.

All of the above forced the US to shatter “the Russian fortress,” igniting a financial cold war, the author claimed.

Since the Russian economy receives most of its income from producing and exporting natural resources, the US conducted a dumping strike against the oil industry which has affected all oil-producing countries.

“God only knows which economy would be able to survive under the low oil prices in the coming six-seven years,” the author wrote.
Washington is saving its own economy by fueling the purchase of US dollars instead of stocks and by printing money.

The US artificially raises the dollar exchange rate so it can cheaply buy everything it needs and forces other countries to hold their reserves in dollars, the newspaper wrote.




Thunderhawk:  Puerto Rican Group Calls for Reunification With Spain

A group in Puerto Rico has launched a campaign to demand that the Caribbean island break all political links with the United States and annex itself once again to Spain.

The Autonomy for Puerto Rico association is not happy about the island’s current status as a “non-incorporated US territory” and wants it to rejoin its onetime mother nation on the other side of the Atlantic, the association’s leader Ivan Arrache told RIA Novosti,
While Catalonia prepares for a vote which its separatist-minded forces see as the first step to independence, many Puerto Ricans are mulling their country’s return to Spain’s fold.

Established in 2012 the Association now has around 30,000 supporters, “both official and unofficial,” Ivan Arrache said.
“We want to become an autonomous community of Spain with a different system of taxation and trade. We want to be with Spain but not blend with it,” he added.

In August 2015 Puerto Rico defaulted on the full payment of its bonds for the first time in the commonwealth government’s history.
Puerto Rico paid $628,000 out of a $58 million payment on its Public Finance Corp bonds which were due August 1st.
The government said it was no longer able to service its $73 billion debt.

Washington promised help in the form of several loans but said that no immediate financial bailout would be forthcoming any time soon.





Thunderhawk:  Putin Submits Bill on Ratification of Integrated CIS Currency Market Deal

CIS is a regional organization formed by former Soviet Union members in the 1990s. The organization aims to promote economic, political and cultural cooperation, and eight of its nine members are part of the CIS Free Trade Area.

Russian President Vladimir Putin submitted a draft law to the country’s lower house of parliament Thursday on ratifying a deal on an integrated Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) currency market.

The common financial market is to expand the use of national currencies in foreign trade payments and financial services and to strengthen trade and economic cooperation between the Commonwealth member states.

The bill has been sent to the parliament’s committee on CIS affairs and Eurasian integration.

According to the official announcement on the Kremlin’s website, the agreement, signed in Turkmenistan’s capital of Ashgabat in 2012, “contemplates direct access by the parties’ resident banks to each other’s domestic foreign exchange currency markets to conduct interbank FX transactions on terms more favorable than those offered to domestic commercial banks.”

Update on the Reforms

We know that parliament was supposed to vote on the National Guard law last Saturday. Then we heard it was postponed indefinitely. We wondered why and when they would continue the voting process.

Well today we finally have word form Iraq as they are telling us in the article below why the law was stalled and when they expect to resolve the differences.

By the way I can hardly believe what I was hearing on an intel conference call just yesterday. The intel “guru” was actually telling everyone this law was passed weeks ago. Do you believe this nonsense? Why would they have 2 article then today alone on this topic if it was already settled and the law passed in parliament.  Maybe this guru is confused when his “secret’ sources from Iraq tells him that the law is passed by the council of ministers. Does he not realize there is a separation of powers in the new democracy of Iraq and thus one legislative body writes the laws, another reviews them and votes, then another has to ratify it by the president as the final step to become a law?

Looks like we have to wait until session on Monday 9/7 of next week for a vote.

So lastly in this section I present you with an article about the Investment law. They are telling us it is not yet passed. There are new much needed amendments to the law that ensures the rights of all people and aims to promote and stimulate economic and human resources in Iraq. The pressure is on and there are other programs going forward that need this law in place. We were told we would see it in yesteday’s session so I guess it was not included so they are complaining about it. That is the basis for this article. It is PRESSURE  for parliament to get off their –sses and get it done. Pardon my French….lol….

Update:  Economic Reforms – Bonds

I can see there is lots of confusion about these darn bonds. So let me clarify it for you.

Next I want to emphasize once again these sovereign bonds (as they mention in the article below) are the INTERNATIONAL bonds and not the bonds Iraq has just launched as NATIONAL and for the citizens exclusively. BIG difference and I need to emphasize this for a reason. The in country bonds or NATIONAL bonds are designed to take in the 3 zero notes for payment to buy the bonds and payout using USD on the bond premiums.

Why are they doing these two different bond drives?

One bond drive (International) is solely to raise capital for Iraq but do it after a revaluation of the currency value, an investment for global investors, and the other is purely to raise funds for the debt and another devise to bring in yet more of the 3 zero notes from circulation in country. 

Do you see the difference and why they are doing both of them? Let’s not confuse them. This is very important and you will see why as we see this issue progress in future news letters. Stay tuned.

I talked about both of these bonds in a recent news letters. Iraq knows they can not issue these Sovereign bonds with a very low, almost worthless currency. Not to mention the newly issued credit rating of only a group ‘B’, but as usual they may find away and try once again.

LONDON, Sept 2 (IFR) – Iraq plans to begin marketing a new Eurobond (or sovereign bonds) following the Labor Day holiday in the U.S., according to several sources, as the sovereign hopes to issue in the capital markets for the first time in nearly a decade.

Representatives from the country are expected to meet investors across the U.S. and Europe ahead of the deal, which is likely to be unsecured.

Citigroup, Deutsche Bank and JP Morgan will be the lead managers, the sources said.

The U.S. Labor Day holiday is on Sept. 7.

The sovereign is seeking to raise up to US$6 billion through bond sales to relieve the pressure of low oil prices on state finances, though sources indicate this first deal will be much smaller.

Last month Iraq received its first international credit rating after Fitch assigned a B- rating with a stable outlook, six notches below investment-grade.

In its assessment Fitch cited political risks and insecurity that are among the highest faced by any sovereign rated by the agency.

Iraq last issued an international bond in January 2006. That US$2.66 billion 5.80 percent deal matures in January 2028. The note is trading at a cash price of 75.50, according to Thomson Reuters, to yield 10.23 percent.…1181VZ20150902

UU6802 – “The Reforms Continue – A Critical Period” by Mnt Goat

Hello Everyone,

If you are reading this news letter today for the very first time I welcome you. But I highly recommend you continue to read it since my news letters connect together and they are a continued saga of the Iraqi dinar revaluation story. I bring no hype or rumors. If I am giving you my personal opinion I will tell you it is only my opinion.

My news letters today is brief with only 7 pages….lol…..I am trying to keep them short. But if only want a date and a rate you can get that from somewhere else and they can give you a couple words or else and be done.

I personally do not think that ANY one event is “holding up” the revaluation process but simply Iraq it not yet ready. When will they be ready?


There is no boogieman behind a curtain that belongs to the cabal or secret society holding this RV back. There is no secret society or others working to make the government better (better for who?- their group to take control?), as some have told you. This is simply all foolishness and must stop.

Today’s News

Today is Wednesday September 2nd and still no RV or hopes of an RV window until at least mid September. 

I told you from mid August to mid September would be a very critical time for getting these reforms accomplished. I told you Abadi would make a final push to get them completed and it would be very sudden and unexpected by most.

I told you that “if” this reform process is successful, we would be in a great window to possibly see the currency reform project pick up momentum and maybe see a significant increase the value of the Iraqi dinar and the continuation of the “deletion of the 3 zeros” project. I firmly expect Dr Shabib to come back to an “official” capacity to head up the CBI once again before these projects kick off fully.

Let’s get going with today’s news. There is much news again and I will attempt to summarize it for you and put it into perspective.

So recently the three presidents including the prime minister, the speaker of the house and the formal president of Iraq met and what were they discussing? These meetings do not happen very much and so when they tell us about them we must pay attention. Something HUGE is about to happen. It always does as the past has told us.
Yesterday’s meeting was about the final push to get the needed critical legislation completed. Once again the are telling us what this key, critical legislation is – “The meeting felt the importance of the completion of key legislation, including the National Guard and the Federal Court and national reconciliation laws”.

So there it is. Their words not mine. No hype or rumors. This is what they are targeting in the next couple weeks. Read it for yourself. 

I also included an article so everyone can see the intentions of Abadi and the cleanup of the money laundering operations. So not only is the CBI making an effort to prevent money laundering but now we see the GOI (under Abadi’s direction)  finally stepping it up and going after the culprits.

CBI Corruption

Like clockwork we see PM Abadi now beginning the effort to clean up the CBI and its corruption as part of his phase III reforms. I have told you this was coming very shortly. It simply had to. Many of you have said what is taking Abadi so long?  Well if you were in his shoes you would probably give up and run away. So patients and lets see how he handles these issues.

I have repeatedly told you that, it was not my feeling or rumor that Dr Shabibi must come back to the CBI, to complete the project to delete the zeros and the currency reform phases, but rather it is in the plan and it has to play out or there is no way for them to clean up this economic mess. 

Now they are telling us that Abadi is to form special committees to open files of corruption on the Central Bank of Iraq (CBI), and on the issue of the dismissal of the former province Shabibi, and the like of the charges brought against him by the mafias of corruption that seized power in that period. But we all know Dr Shabibi has already been  vindicated from any crimes…did we not hear this many months ago? So what is this investigation now really about?

So now Abadi has to after the culprits in the CBI dealing with this money laundering and anyone involved in supporting Maliki as he raided the CBI reserves. Abadi also has to replace the current proxy governor since his ties with Maliki are too strong. It is time now for this work.

In my last news letter I stated that the current proxy acting governor does not have the experience to handle the current financial crisis of Iraq nor does he not have the solutions necessary to clean up the mess that former PM Maliki left behind. Seems every plot to raise capital for the deficit seems to backfire on the CBI. They keep hitting roadblocks on the tariffs, bonds and other sources to raise revenue without a change in value to the currency.

So this is exciting news I bring to you today is in 2 articles I included below on the same topic. So it too is very important. I said they intend to do something very shortly (need to do something very shortly is more like it) with the currency value. Iraq is at that point    they must finally join the international community or stay as a third world country. 

We all should be very, very excited since this is ONE of the keys to opening the lock to begin the RV process.
I will talk more about this in my future news letters.

I also included a third article and I know this INDIRECTLY impacts the plan to clean up the CBI. They desperately need the help of Dr Shabibi and they know it. They are asking him to head up this committee although we know he is not going to take the job unless he has a FREE HAND and INDEPENDENCE to operate, manage and institute change as needed as the governor of the CBI.

None of these three articles comes right out and tells us directly but we can read behind the words they present that they are desperate and need sound economic advice from an expert.
The last article in this section is about the central bank telling once again about  the issuance of new currencies in both categories [50] thousand and [100] thousand Iraqi dinars end of this year. Remember it was just a few weeks ago that the CBI announced they would and could only issue the 50 thousand notes now and then wait till 2016 sometime for the 100 thousand notes. Now they are telling us they are going to wait for both the 50 and the 100 thousand notes till 2016. So what has changed? This one we will have to watch closely. Do they know what they are doing? Remember they can’t issue any of these new notes unless the value of the currency increased and they are no the new low denoms. These  2 large newer notes ARE NOT TO BE USED IN THE GENERAL PUBLIC along side the existing 3 zero notes (as they are using today).
