Part 1 Millionday LINK
   
[millionday] Saleh pointed out that although the negotiations began last year, but the Chapter VII represented the main obstacle in failing to give him credit rating as the country poses a threat to international peace and security.

He noted that Iraq is now out of Chapter VII of the UN Charter and moved to Chapter VI of it, which means it is now no longer poses a threat but on the contrary, he entered the phase of peace and development, noting that the credit rating not yet been determined, but – as I believe – in B-class and this is a good indicator

He explained that the rating is through the public debt and the issuance of treasury transfers or government bonds, particularly in international markets, or those bonds that are sold outside of Iraq except for support and one Qaeidah Iraq in return for private-sector debt under the Paris Club agreement.   [millionday] smile    [millionday] now that we will take

Read More Link On Right

    [millionday] Added when sold bonds then sold at about 60 cents, then rose discount of up to 90 cents, and in this case became as if Iraq automatically rated among the countries that have rated within Class B-giving Iraq a good indicator in the presence of Chapter VII.

He stressed that Iraq would emerge from Chapter VII and the entry of foreign companies, in addition to the presence of high liquidity and political stability and the presence of the oil wealth, are all factors that will raise the credit rating of the degree of Iraq.

    [millionday] i personally think that iraq has no where to go but up so this is just more on just that point

    [millionday] smile   brb with more

    [letsroll] … maliki has had Saleh in jail for the past months shabbs fled seleh thrown in jail along with other cbi employees…

    [millionday] Despite the adoption of the Law of the Federal service for more than 4 years in the House of Representatives, but the formation of the Council was delayed because of the desire of some blocks to choose candidates for the presidency and membership of the Council political.

Representatives differed in blaming the party responsible for the delay in the formation of the Council, while some believe The parliament is responsible for the delay because of not sending the names of candidates for membership of the Council, Others carried the Council of Ministers responsible for obstruction, considering that the role of parliament ended as soon approve the law. ensures the law of the Federal service the right to distribute appointments fairly among all Iraqis of graduates and skilled and other slides .

    [millionday] letsroll shabibi is doing interviews and saleh is speaking in the last post i just made  i believe it has been about three weeks but i will have to look and make sure

    [millionday] he also demanded that a massive amount of people be released fro ramadan and that the amnesty law is activated   i almost fell off my chair when i read that   ] smile

    [millionday] so this that i am bringing now is concerning the federal service that everyone is thinking is very important in our wait  [millionday] let me bring the rest of this and maybe we can find some answers

    [millionday] building of the nation >>>>>>>>>>>>>MP for the coalition of state law on the Keywords explained that the law of the Federal service of important laws that regulate the process of appointments by the terms of reference and is intended to include young brains for the process of nation-building in a scientific and accurate according to plans prepared systematically establishes principles that will ensure the needs of the country’s human resources and supports the development according to the latest scientific methods minute.

acknowledged the House of Representatives in 2009, the Law Council Public Service Federal “in order to regulate the affairs of public office and editing of politicization and partisanship and build a state of institutions and the formation of Foundation mission is the development of work in government departments and develop rules and principles of sound and secure justice and impartiality and to ensure that standards efficiency in recruitment and re-recruitment, promotion and application of Article 107 of the Constitution.

    [millionday] “He Keywords in an interview for” Center Brief for the Iraqi Media Network, “The role of the House of Representatives finished work on this law, but the law is still stalled in the corridors of the prime minister is expected to vote on members of the candidates who are supposed to have been selected by the Council of Ministers, noting that the Council did not do it yet.

The elimination of unemployment He attributed the delay in the vote on the candidates to the need for political consensus, so the law is still subject to the consensus, noting that this law is one of the most important laws that end the issue of unemployment in an orderly and supports the equitable distribution of the rights of new graduates and owners of efficiencies.

Called MP all political forces to work hard To complete this vital and important project which would secure the country’s need of specialized talent to raise levels to complete the construction process according to the latest him the world.

    [millionday] note — so the law is finished but not voted through

    [millionday] note — for the elections next year in what they are referencing

    [millionday] The MP for the rule of law Mohammed Chihod he carried parliament responsibility for delaying this law being sent not yet the names of candidates to become prime minister.

Called MP that concludes the parliament session legislative laws mission, including the law, which contributes to the distribution of appointments fairly among the people.

Explained Chihod for “Center Brief for the Iraqi Media Network,” The law of the Federal service is one of the important laws that help to absorb unemployment among graduates and people because it regulates the equitable distribution of flour in jobs., and pointed out that the House of Representatives is expected the prime minister to send their candidates for this law to be voted on and falls within the work, attributing the cause to delay work on this project to the national political consensus.

    [millionday] so as i have said in the past — it is seen by me as an application that will be done after the activation of their economy and we have moved on

    [millionday] they need this law in place for political stability in the future and of course as we see the many missions of the law but mainly the appointments it declares    [millionday] brb with more smile

    [mydinar100] millionday I was told today from someone I really trust that Obama now has a currency tax. Do you know anything about this info?

    [millionday] smart card news

    [janiem] Millionday – is Iraq totally out of chapter VII or do they need to pay the money to Kuwait first?

    [millionday] and the use of them for housing? hmmm — lets read this

    millionday] they are released from chapter 7 and some articles are under chapter 6 for monitoring — but yes they are released from chapter 7

    [millionday] Started all branches of the Housing Fund of the Ministry of Construction recognizes the premium amounts arising from the borrowers through agents and smart card offices in all provinces, with the orientation of the opening of three branches in the provinces of Nineveh and Kirkuk to expand the interest of the citizens.

Director General of the Fund Burhanuddin Salman Al-Bassam explained to (Center Brief for the Iraqi Media Network) that the fund began in early July, the current amounts received on premiums according to the smart card system based on the directives of the Minister of Construction Judge to provide various facilities to customers of the borrowers.

    [millionday] He added that Iraq has a 1200 port for the smart card distributed between the government and private banks and offices licensed and deployed in various provinces and districts and areas, where borrowers can pay premiums resulting discharged to the Fund through including help them to avoid the trouble to reach the branches of the Fund, particularly the elderly, sick and disabled them. Bassam pointed out that the Fund received approval to open three branches, two of which are within the province of Nineveh, divided between

    [millionday] the districts of Tall Afar, Sinjar, as well as another branch in the district of Tuz in Kirkuk, stressing that he opened three branches in addition to another branch in progress within Balad in Salahuddin province , the 19 branches will become competent to lend citizens, stressing that the fund plans to open branches in a number of other districts in the state to provide help and assistance of the competent local authorities.

    [millionday] oh this is great improvement and also progress — love that

    [millionday] thank GOD for the citizens — this is great movement

    [millionday] note — the massive news out there about iraq and the un is concerning the peace needed and the UnAMi not the chapter 7 and economy ect ect — the Kobler releases are about the citizens needs and also the need to remain without massive bullets ripping throughout their bodies

    [millionday] they are also talking and addressing syria and the middle east and iraq`s opinions and points being made concerning all of their issues in the region

    [sunnyca] millionday About the smart cards, are they issued and loaded & if not can you tell when they will be?

    [millionday] i think that is very interesting that they are changing the repayment of the housing loans to the smart cards — that is a very clever way to up the services of banking

    [millionday] so the place we are with the tariff is they agree and have submitted the cost of activation of and the running of the customs for the country

    [millionday] i however do not see how that is it — they have multiple free ports and also major agreements and banking reform that relies on the set of the rate

    millionday] also they need the money to activate it and the gov is calling for it to move forward with the budget ect

    [millionday] but the many pms i just got asked me so there is my opinion —

    [millionday] they have a huge portion of customs running and many pictures of it and its operation —

    [millionday] the basket news came out too let me get that and see if i can show you

    [millionday] New National Alliance rejected baht to pass laws in accordance with the mechanism of basketball one, returned it with a “failure” politically. Agreed Congress about the need for reserving differences between the blocs and parties and keep it away from the parliament and not subjecting legislation to the will of the parties and the heads of blocs to activate the work of parliament and exercise its supervisory and legislative, calling for the presidency of the Council to put a priority task of the laws in order to be included.

 The main contentious laws in the Federal Court Act, and the criminalization of the Baath Party, oil and gas, accountability and justice, and a general amnesty, and the law of the upcoming parliamentary elections, and the demarcation of the administrative border

    [lorijeanmarshall] Ok, so Iraq doesn’t like Baskeball. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    [millionday] smile — must mean basket lol

    [lorijeanmarshall] millionday Probably. LOL

    [millionday] Member of the National Alliance MP for the National Alliance Mansour al-Tamimi, saw that political differences on contentious laws except simple law of the Federal Court and the general amnesty, and the rest Fbalamkan passed, including the amendment of the law of accountability and justice. Tamimi stressed that the pass laws according to one basket is dangerous, and that all members of the House of Representatives against this principle, arguing that there is a real will to pass laws adopting all sponsor.

    [wmawhite] millionday millionday …………Are they referring to the NBA Draft????lol

    [millionday] and the rest passed — whoop whoop — progress

    [millionday] wmawhite lol

    millionday] accountability and justice is great

    [millionday] He added that the differences on the laws very simple between the blocks and can be and vote on the law, noting that if there is the will and determination to pass it be passed easily, including the amendment of the law of accountability and justice, adding that the amnesty laws and the Federal Court and the Federation Council, you need a political consensus between the blocs because it acknowledges according to the two-thirds of the members of the House of Representatives.

The religious authority has criticized the recent “attempts by the House of Representatives to pass laws basket of one,” as he said a certified reference Mr. Ahmed net in his Friday sermon before the final: “If the matter is urgent issuing the delay time after we are studying each individual project and took his time in debates It is a good thing I do not mind it.

    [millionday] well i mind it — and i am sure the citizens do too   smile

    [millionday] He said net “However, if the goal is pushing the laws to the presence of courtesy and satisfy this or that party, the laws do not proceed in this way is not good and as a way incorrect”, stressing that “some laws are dangerous in the march of services and citizens can not be passed laws at the expense of the people’s interest .

    [millionday] For his part, remained MP for the coalition of state law WIN National Alliance Hussein Net activating the role of Parliament as an institution issued regulatory legislation and recognizes the laws of stability and political agreement.

 The Net’s “Center Brief for the Iraqi Media Network”: that “the process of issuing laws must take into account the national interest, which is based on service of the homeland and the citizen,” noting that what is happening now is that the will of the parties and reasons for interest factional jumped on the duties and the role of parliament, constitutional and weakened.

    [millionday] note — sounds like democracy to me

    [millionday] Net promised one basket mechanism failed politically and norepinephrine Problems caused as well as the absence of national Alardah, demanding political blocs to abandon its interests in the current phase of the sensitivity and the need for the country to political stability and security. He stressed the importance of not giving priority to political outlook governed by the decisions of factional interest blocs to pass any legislation of important legislation of what constitutes this matter the seriousness of the political process.

    [millionday] The National Alliance MP Abbas al-Bayati, have questioned the possibility of approving all the controversial laws, because they need an understanding between the blocks, calling for the Presidency of the Council of Representatives to put a priority task of the laws for their approval.

Bayati pointed out that there are laws need to be a broad base of understanding and broad, believing that the current atmosphere helps to build a minimum of consensus and understanding, and wondered about the possibility of understanding the blocks today on all the laws broken over three years have passed.

    [millionday] The MP expressed hope that the blocks on the package of laws that relate to citizens, noting that the approval of the Federal Court Act is important, but more importantly, the citizen public pension law, as well as the administrative demarcation law and social security but has more priority.

 He called al-Bayati of the Presidency of the Council of Representatives to determine priorities and time limits on the light is working and movement.

    [millionday] the leaders approved it when they met so this makes little sense  remember they even renamed it ect   very strange because we saw that the mastercards were being given out

    [millionday] so any way it is saying they are separating the laws and passing them through as they go and they did not like the basket being ball or laws idea — smile

    [millionday] they have passed a few it looks like and on the table is the agreed on taxation laws as well as the hcl    the constitution rules the amounts going to the citizens ect in percentage

    [millionday] always remember that the banking of cbi is what we are watching — we are waiting for the rate to change and for us to make money

    [millionday] the monetary policy for the country is very important because the cbi is an independent and their one most important role is the monetary policy and the monitoring of the proper exchange rate

    [millionday] so that is all we see for today i hope everyone enjoyed the update and have a great evening

Baghdad (newsletter). Economist predicted Majid mock, high rates of inflation in the country over the coming months, urging the Government to pursue real economic development in the country.
Mock said (News Agency): there are obvious reasons may lead to rising inflation because of the fluctuation in the price of gold, oil and the dollar exchange rate, and this will lead to KULLA rise in price leads to higher inflation in the future.
Mock said: If you get real economic development in Iraq, and this of course is by the Government do not believe that the factors leading to the decline in inflation requires a serious concerned in this aspect.
Higher rates are calculated and the low inflation in the country through the account of goods and services, including food, rent, transportation and communications, health, education and other consumer/

Baghdad (AIN) –The Economy and Investment Parliamentary Committee demanded the Central Bank of Iraq to maintain the price of the Iraqi dinar in exchange of foreign currencies.
The Secretary of the Committee, Mahma Khalil, told AIN ”The CBI is obliged to preserve the price of the IQD in return of foreign currencies since the currency of the State represents its economic identity at the political arena. ”
”The price of the IQD totally depends on the CBI policy whose task is to preserve the price of IQD which was built basically on the price of oil barrels,” he added.
“The Secretary of the Committee attributed the vacillation in IQD price to its association with the Iraqi political fluctuations and the security situation which holds off investment opportunities,” he concluded

Hello Family: Here are the notes from tonight’s CC. May the Lord’s blessings be on each of you!

“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16 KVJ

Frank26 IQD Update after Bible Study Tuesday, July 16, 2013

• The ISX has traded 2 trillion dinar this year, not bad for penny stocks!

• There is so much going on, the CBI and GOI working together; how is the stock market doing today? Frank will come back to this later
….
Read More Link on Right

• Article: The economic parliamentary said the current currency is not worthy in Iraq – meaning the value is not acceptable for the explosion that is about to happen in their economy

• CBI currency auctions are huge, and notice it’s their own currency, not foreign currency that’s being traded; couple it with 2 trillion on the stock market and it’s obvious that something is happening!

• M has been “tagged” and now it’s his turn to go to Kurdistan; in Frank’s opinion, about a week after M’s visit, we’ll see B go to Baghdad

• Frank read Society’s post from today and agreed that it’s correct except that Frank will not back down from the CNN International report, he stands behind this report, if he had reason to retract it, he would, but he continues to stand behind it

• Walkingstick article today quoting B statement that he will not be president for life, it’s temporary; article from yesterday that M wants to seek a third term — B is showing that he’s the “good son”

• The USA has been decreased in its credit rating twice by the IMF; today an article came out from the Deputy Governor of the CBI (Mohamed Shaleh) discussing the credit rating of Iraq which is backed by bonds, and although low rating, it’s better than none – but, the rating is class B (which even at 1166 rate is better than the USA!!). He went on to say that the rating will increase with their oil wealth, etc

• Article about ISX going electronic was old, they have been electronic since 2009, but yesterday was the first time NASDAQ used their electronic platform to conduct trading with Iraq; for the first time today, US stocks began trading in the Green Zone!!

• Frank asked the family to do homework on the ISX, and Goldman Sachs is a good place to start

• Frank reported yesterday that M and S will both make announcements; Frank then role played a call from M to B: M has a “blank check” for B; THIS WAS THE ANNOUNCEMENT FROM M TO THE CITIZENS OF IRAQ!

• In Frank’s opinion, he hopes to see the announcement from S next week

• Hakim met with the Emir and Prince of Kuwait: they know it’s very important to meet the obligation of the money that is owed

• Frank read post 281 by El Camino from the 7/15 thread regarding attitude – story of a man who viewed everything as a choice: be in good or bad mood? Choose good; be a victim or learn from bad experience? Choose to learn; every situation is a choice – it’s our choice how we live our life; the man was shot in a robbery, and his choice to be positive and his choice to live in the face of a near-fatal wound saved his life; we have the choice to live fully or not, and our attitude is everything

• In response to this post, MDretiree replied how much the post meant to him, especially in the face of his own very serious health issues, that he chooses to live his life to the fullest with whatever purpose the Lord has for him; Frank was very touched that MDretiree’s focus is on serving the Lord in whatever way he can for however long he can; his focus is not on the IQD or the RV, his purpose is to serve God

• Frank shared a bank story : About 3 weeks ago, a trusted friend/advisor of Frank’s in TX was contacted by WF with the offer to provide any needed service; Frank’s friend asked the banker about the IQD, but the banker said it is not his dept., knows nothing about it but will try to find out; the banker just called Frank’s friend, and reported that he spoke with 5 very highly placed wealth managers at WF a few days ago, and asked about the IQD; all 5 confirmed that they are advising their clients to carry IQD in their portfolio, that it will increase in value, they don’t know when but they know what’s going on; this is a huge turn around, WF is no longer denying the IQD, they are training tellers how to direct exchange requests, and the wealth managers are advising 5 – 15% of portfolio to be in IQD; it’s not difficult to understand what’s going on

• Link all of this with Shaleh speaking, the NASDAQ link with the ISX, US stocks trading the Green Zone, M’s “blank check” to B – it all adds up to increase in the value of the IQD

• Frank asked for prayer for Joe, a 10 year old boy with leukemia, and all who stand in need of prayer at this time

Eagle1 came on the call at this point

Eagle1 gave an update: expecting to see currencies on the ForEx, but did not go because the IQD is the pivot currency and the IMF codes expired because of the delay in Iraq; new codes have been provided by the IMF, and we now wait to see if it happens tonight or tomorrow – or not

• Frank commented there will be those that complain about “another excuse” and Frank asked that Regner pray for them

• The conference call concluded with Eagle1 offering prayer for Frank and Tink, and for those who are burdened and troubled with concerns about their investment; Andy then lifted the prayer with the shofar horn blast, and Frank closed with singing “Amazing Grace”

WEDNESDAY’S CONFERENCE CALL IS CANCELLED DUE TO FRANK’S SURGICAL
PRE-OP, AND SURGERY ON THURSDAY
THE NEXT CONFERENCE CALL WILL BE ON MONDAY JULY 22

Prayers for Frank will be appreciated!

[Robertprofessor] Castle friends, I have some good news to share with you!!!! :bananadancers:

[Robertprofessor] Yesterday, I told you about my dad’s banking story at WF. That happened in the Colorado Springs area where one of the bank managers talked openly with my dad about the IQD and VND and that the downtown WF would be the place for him to go.

[Robertprofessor] Okay, a friend of mine in Denver called a few minutes ago with a story that about has me on my knees.

[Robertprofessor] Her brother is a senior VP of one of the downtown WF banks in Denver. He’s been with WF for 40 years. He believes the dinar is a total scam.

 [Robertprofessor] He called their mother about an hour ago with news of a raise he was given today by the senior president of WF for the area. They had breakfast together. The bank president said that he would have a major announcement for all his WF …

[Robertprofessor] … branches on Wednesday morning. He did not reference what it was about, but that it was very big. He spent breakfast talking about the days ahead for WF and how the company will be one of the leading banks in the world.

[dojon] Robertprofessor Is he eating CROW?

[Texastwc] Robertprofessor when is announcement??

[Texastwc] Robertprofessor THAT is awesome!!!!

[WCW] all cards are loaded in iraq all we need is rv rv imo imo imo

[Robertprofessor] This brother of my friend still knows nothing about what is coming. He does not believe in the dinar at all. I got his sister into this investment and she has not convinced him it’s for real. She approached him once and he scoffed. So that was his chance for it.

[Texastwc] Robertprofessor I think a lot of folks will wish they had a chance

[Robertprofessor] So, there it is. Two bank stories from the Front Range of Colorado, two different cities, all completely different people in both stories. Sounds like an rv to me!

Hannah] Robertprofessor I like that bank story …. a lot! Thanks for sharing. And I love that tomorrow is Wednesday!!!

[KajunRedBull] Robertprofessor ….What makes you think this “Announcement” from WF will relate to the rv I only ask because this negative high roller was not told anything by his boss….

sandytob] KajunRedBull can you think of something else the announcement might be about????rofl

[Robertprofessor] KajunRedBull No way to know if the announcement has anything to do with the rv, but nothing like this has happened in the 40 years my friend’s brother has worked for WF.

FLPatriot59] TREAT AS RUMOR: July 16, 2013 @ 5.54 pm….should be live by the time banks close in Hawaii…delay was ISX integration…[Stage2Omega]–This is current as of today.

[FLPatriot59] Whcih, if you think about it, the ISX happened yesterday morning. If there was a glitch then they worked on it yesterday, tested it again today, and voila, we’re good to go. Purely speculation on my part!

Muscat: The Iraqi banking sector is set for significant earnings and asset growth over the next decade driven by a strong macro environment, increasing credit penetration and the improving security situation in the country, according to a new report on Iraq’s banking sector released by Sansar Capital Management.
With the International Monetary Fund (IMF) forecasting Iraq’s GDP to grow at a rate of 9 per cent in 2013, the banking sector in particular is expected to maintain steady growth over the next few years.
The Sansar Capital report points out that rising credit penetration is also expected to further fuel banking sector growth. The report cites a World Bank study which shows that Iraqi domestic credit to GDP stood at a mere 9 per cent of GDP at the end of 2011 as compared to a 55 per cent of GDP average for the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region.
Domestic credit to GDP grew at a clip of 89 per cent Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) between 2009-2011. Moreover, according to Central Bank of Iraq data, cash credit, such as loans and overdraft facilities, have grown at an impressive CAGR of 50 per cent from 2006-2011.
The detailed report analyses the Iraqi private banking sector through the perspective of five of the country’s largest private banks by deposit. The report reveals that buoyed by strong economic growth and rising credit penetration, these five banks saw their aggregate net income grow by 207 per cent between 2010-2012.
Dilution driven by increases in equity capital resulted in EPS growth to be lower.

 

7-15-13 Iraq Business News:  American-based private equity firm Carlyle Group is reported to be looking for opportunities in Northern Iraq.
A report from Dow Jones says the move comes as a result of a new $750m fund that the company hopes to raise to invest in the Middle East and North Africa.
The firm, which is expected to begin informal talks with investors after Ramadan, has been one of the few buyout firms to remain active in the region in recent years.

 

7-16-2013 Newshound Guru Tlar This lady is on the finance committee and is therefore most likely to be “in the know” after having just sat with Turki. This sentence…is very telling to me “Najib said that “previous administrative body of the Central Bank presented a study on the preparation of the project to delete zeros,” It indicates that to me Turki, is meeting with individual members of both the finance and the economic committees, selling the “scientific study” that was done in 2008 under Shabibi’s watch.
