https://paypal.me/MntGoatNewsletter?locale.x=en_US

As usual, remember that for the last 8 years now, I have taken my own time from my gasthaus business and my family to research and document findings about the revaluation and reinstatement of the Iraqi dinar. I also now feel more than ever we must connect the politics with our investment as the “financial reset” is going to get what we want. At this time more than ever I do not need to spend my time doing all this research. Why do I do it? I do it for you and to help clarify the garbage intel and lies from these charlatan intel gurus. This does not benefit me, as I can keep this information to myself and do not have to share it.  

MARCH MADNESS CAMPAIGN FOR $1 GIFT

Absolutely EVERYONE reading this newsletter today must realize the time and efforts I put into these materials all week long. Yes, everyone reading this newsletter today benefits from the news. Is it that difficult to gift $1? Yes, just $1, the cost of a soda, a bag of chips or a cup of coffee. I also see that most will get a stimulus check of $1,400 something we do not get in the EU. We are all hurting in the EU.

Let’s call this our March Madness! 

It is easy to gift with PAYPAL. I assure you these gifts go a very long way each month to help pay off the bills that are piling up due to the lack of business from the COVID pandemic. Once we are over the hump with this pandemic and countries open up fully, thus travel is flowing again, I plan to have an OPEN HAUS for an entire week to let my faithful readers come and stay (at no charge) in our gasthaus and meet the family. It will be on the basis of first come first serve. I look forward to meeting many of you.

Please be generous but only if you can afford it and remember to give. I suggest $5-$10 a month but you decide. Whatever you can afford will be helpful in this time of Covid where nearly 80% of our business is now gone due to travel restrictions.

The following kindly need to go in to PayPal and cancel your “Money Transfer” (Request) as you need to “Send Money” instead and not “Money Transfer” a money transfer is a request to ask me for money:

It is hard to believe that March is gone already. But the good news is we are moving into yet warmer weather and spring has sprung forward. We also all should be paying much attention now to the political situation especially in the USA and in the UK. Again I want to inform everyone do not expect any RV within Iraq or the reinstatement until the governments are secure and many of the corrupt deep state swampers are taken down.

Many of you readers are losing faith in the investment so today I listed a few articles from the past to show you how the CBI kept attempting the project to delete the zeros but each time the GOI stopped it. Remember the GOI at these times had many corrupt politicians and they were sucking the life out of Iraq. Remember we were told many times that the money stolen from the currency auctions alone could of completely rebuilt Iraq 10 times over. So why are so many people still living in poverty with make-shift hospitals, schools closed and some still without fresh water and electricity. There is no reason for this to occur except the damned GOI does not care enough about the people and only care about filling their own pockets. Did you watch my video set on my FB site called “If I Were A Rich Man”.  I intentionally blocked the voices of a part of it were it showed the war with ISIS and the poverty. Just recently I produced another video set called “Who Is Calling The Shots”. This one is all about the US and its voter corruption. Please go educate yourself and watch these videos. Don’t let these charlatans fool you anymore. Know the TRUTH.

We see this in the USA too with the current corrupt government now in power. Yes Joe Biden and his gang of thugs finally had a successful coup as they tried and tried to take over the government since 2016. So when will this end?

The prophets bring us almost daily news now of the future but are we listening. I know, I know it is hard to listen because for 4 moths already they have given news of the promises of the changes coming. So I am with you and I feel it too. But where are these changes? This is where our faith must be the strongest. It is when we are in our deepest desperation that faith counts the most. We are there now. Of course when all is going well we don’t think much about God then,,,do we? Pray, pray and pray some more. God is hearing our prayers. There is so much going on behind the scenes that you don’t know about and so the change are being put in place. Just be patient.

A LEGAL EXPERT DIRECTS A PROPOSAL THAT ALLOWS PARLIAMENT TO CHANGE THE EXCHANGE RATE … HOW?

Economic expert Nabil Al-Marsoumi released, on Wednesday, a new proposal that allows Parliament to intervene and change the dollar’s exchange rate .

He pointed out that if the House of Representatives did so, “the Iraqi parliament becomes the first parliament in the world to manage the monetary policy in the country.

So what happened as we are now in 2021?

ECONOMIST HIGHLIGHTS FEASIBILITY OF CROSSING OUT ZEROS FROM IRAQI DINAR

by Ibrahim Khalil Sep 17, 2012

Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) The economist, Basim Jameel, CRITICIZED THE OFFICIALS WHO USED TO ATTRIBUTE THE DELAY IN IMPLEMENTING THE PROCESS OF DELETING OUT ZEROS FROM THE IRAQI DINAR TO THE “UNSTABLE SECURITY AND ECONOMY SITUATIONS.”

Jameel stated to IraqiNews.com “EVERYTHING IN IRAQ IS SUBJECT TO THE RESOLUTIONS AND MOODS OF THE POLITICIANS,” noting that “There is an item in the law of the Central Bank of Iraq that authorizes it to print and change the Iraqi dinar.”

He continued saying “The deletion of zeros from the Iraqi dinar is very suitable in this stage because IT HELPS IN ELIMINATING THE INFLATION CAUSED BY THE HUGE AMOUNTS OF CURRENCY NOTES IN THE IRAQI MARKETS, besides it helps to ease the calculation process for currency notes.”

He assured that “This step will not affect the purchasing power of the Iraqi dinar.” (Mnt Goat – in a negative way)

“ADOPTING THIS STEP WILL BE OF GREAT BENEFIT FOR THE FOREIGN INVESTORS and the Iraqi Dinar to use it instead of the US Dollar which will positively affect the governmental banks,” the economic expert assured.

The Council of Ministers has decided in its session of last April, 10th to postpone implementing the process of crossing out zeros from the Iraqi dinar till further notice.

IRAQI DINAR TO HAVE 3 ZEROS CANCELED BY THE CENTRAL BANK OF IRAQ ACCORDING TO FINANCE COMMISSIONER

by Amir Abdallah Apr 13, 2013

The Iraqi dinar will have 3 zeros canceled by the Central Bank of Iraq according to Finance Commissioner, MP Abdul Hussein al-Yassiri.

MP al-Yassiri told Iraqi News that “it is supposed that this year will witness necessary preparations to cancel three zeros from the currency”.

He added that his commission supports such move for its importance to the Iraqi economy.

The Central Bank of Iraq, earlier, announced that cancelling the zeros is within a plan to develop monetary policies in the country.

One of the difficulties facing is Iraq is withdrawing 30 trillion Iraqi dinars from Iraq’s market at the present time and to replacing it with new currency.

Earlier, the ministry of FINANCE RULED OUT THE IDEA OF CANCELLING THE ZEROS IN 2013 BECAUSE THE FEDERAL BUDGET WAS BASED ON THE CURRENT CURRENCY.

(Mnt Goat – this last statement is of course a lie, a BIG FAT lie. We know that DR Shabibi fully intended and planned to cancel the zeros in early 2013. He told us so. There were many articles in the spring and summer of 2012 telling the citizens how it would work and the process. This was the educational phase. This article only came out after AL-Maliki (then the prime minister) raided the CBI and set fake allegations against Dr. Shabibi for corruption in the CBI. But who was really corrupt? This was the “economic hitman” that came to Iraq to hold up the economic progress of Iraq. This was intentional and conspired with Maliki who is a double agent for US, Iraq and Iran. )

2015 DELETE THE ZEROS WILL BEGIN THIS YEAR

Mar 03 2015 | (Voice of Iraq)

The project of deleting zeros came late after a long delay for this project which may bring back prestige to the Iraqi dinar which has suffered inflation for quite a long time. The Iraqi Central Bank (CBI) will begin this year with the procedures of deleting three zeros from the local currency according to the financial parliamentary committee in Iraq based on the official correspondences between the Central bank and the committee.

Abdul-Hussain al-Yasseri, a member of the financial committee, assured that the project is about to begin to delete three zeros from the local currency adding that the local currency will lower from 4 billion units to 1 billion units which will make currency transfers easier. Al-Yasseri, also, pointed out that the financial committee supports measures to enhance local currency considering the importance of Iraqi economy.

The central bank said that deleting zeros comes within a plan to improve its monetary policy and to enhance currency management.

The central bank POINTED OUT IN LAST AUGUST that it plans to delete zeros from the Iraqi dinar to facilitate transactions that are carried out mostly in cash among the challenges that Iraq will probably face when it will delete zeros from the dinar IS TO WITHDRAW 30 TRILLION DINARS CURRENTLY USED IN THE IRAQI MARKET THEN GETTING RID OF THEM AND REPLACE THEM WITH NEW CURRENCY.

Observers fear that this may open the door for currency counterfeiting on a large scale taking advantage of withdrawing old currency from the markets. The project of deleting zeros from the old Iraqi currency despite its strategic importance though its implementation should take into account the stability of security policy in the country to avoid any disastrous consequences.

REVALUATION OF THE IRAQI DINAR REVALUATION IS READY. WHEN WILL THE IRAQI DINAR BE REVALUED?

Jan 8, 2019

The revaluation of the Iraqi dinar is ready to be implemented by the country’s Central Bank; however, the Parliamentary Economic and Investment Commission has decided to postpone the revaluation to 2019.

The plan is to eliminate zeros from the value of the Iraqi currency, allowing the dinar to gain value on the global market.

(Mnt Goat – “to regain value in the global market means that the reinstatement on FOREX is part of the elimination of the zeros (the project to delete the zeros). )

With the anticipation of the Iraqi dinar revaluation, millions of dinars have been bought all over the world by investors. Those investors hope that the revaluation of the dinar will increase the value of the currency, which would make all of their dinars worth significantly more than when they bought them. HOWEVER, THE REVALUATION CONTINUES TO GET POSTPONED AND IS SET FOR 2019 AS THE COUNTRY FACES MORE PRESSING POLITICAL ISSUES.

(Mnt Goat – did you read the last sentence to this paragraph? It makes reference to the hold being “more pressing political issues”. Oh..but haven’t we heard that the CBI governs monetary policy not the politicians. Is this then the problem here we are experiencing with all the corruption in the hold up of the deletion of the zeros? Why else then do we still wait? )

Currency revaluation refers to a calculated upward adjustment to a nation’s exchange rate relative to its chosen baseline. The process is undertaken by nations with fixed exchange rates to deliberately increase the value of its own currency relative to a single currency, a basket of international currencies or whatever the underlying baseline may be.

Currency revaluation only occurs in fixed currencies, meaning the currency is pegged to a foreign currency, a basket of foreign currencies or a different quantitative benchmark. The process may only be undertaken by the underlying nation’s government or policymakers. The act of altering the value of a nation’s currency relative to other currencies is typically influenced by market pressures. The pressure is now.

A government typically revalues its currency when it wishes to increase the value of its currency relative to its benchmark currency. This maneuver would officially increase the purchasing power of the nation’s residents while decreasing the price of imports.

Revaluation is the inverse of devaluation, which is the official lowering of the value of a nation’s currency within a fixed exchange rate. Under this measure, the underlying government establishes a new fixed rate respective to the benchmark.

The International Monetary Fund encourages governments and policymakers to refrain from manipulating exchange rates to gain unfair competitive advantages over foreign currencies.

CURRENT IRAQI DINAR PEG WILL CONTINUE FOR NEXT FOUR YEARS: OFFICIAL

March 25, 2021 Walter

SULAIMANI —Director of the Department of Financial Operations and Debt Management of Iraq’s Central Bank Mahmud Dagher said on Wednesday (March 24) that the price of US dollar against Iraqi dinar will be fixed at the current price for the next four years.

During an appearance in NRT’s Tawtwe interview program, Dagher said that the Council of Representatives does not have the authority to make changes in the price of US dollar.

$100 was at 144,750 Iraqi dinars as of Wednesday evening.

The devaluation of dinar, which was included in the federal government’s draft 2021 budget, was designed to preserve Iraq’s dollar reserves and allow the government to spend more Iraqi dinars.

The move however made imports and goods originally priced in other currencies, like hydrocarbons, more expensive.

On Sunday, Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq Mustafa Ghalib said that THE DEVALUATION OF THE IRAQI DINAR THIS WINTER ENHANCED THE COUNTRY’S FINANCIAL SUSTAINABILITY BECAUSE THE MOVE INCREASED COUNTRY’S FOREIGN CURRENCY RESERVES AND STRENGTHENED ITS PUBLIC FINANCES.

March 25, 2021 Walter

Shafaq News / The Parliamentary Regions and Governorates Committee announced, on Thursday, that the Kurdistan Region will be included in the petrodollar fund within the general budget law for 2021.

THE FINANCE COMMITTEE WARNS: THE 2021 BUDGET MAY BE CANCELED FOR THIS REASON?

 
The Parliamentary Finance Committee warned, Thursday, of indicators that may lead to the cancellation of the 2021 budget.

The deputy of the committee, Jamal Cougar, said that “the issue is not the issue of the region and the share of the region is a peg, stressing that” there are two wills in the Iraqi state, A WILL THAT DOES NOT WANT ELECTIONS TO BE HELD NOT FOR THIS GOVERNMENT TO SUCCEED AND NOT TO APPROVE THE BUDGET AND HAS THREE ARGUMENTS WHICH PEG THE REGION ‘S SHARE, the price of the Iraqi dinar exchange rate, and the lack of justice in the distribution, and all these arguments and is not a reality , and unlike real. “

He noted, that” there is the will of the contrary of these want For the elections to take place and for the government to succeed, it discussed the budget and brought it to the rope of the vote, but the other hand does not allow this budget to go to the vote.

“”That hand that does not want to approve the budget has interfered and does not want the agreement of the Kurdistan Region delegation to pass with the political forces in Baghdad last week, nor for the budget to pass.”

A member of the committee warned that the current year’s budget was not approved due to the conflict of wills, pointing out that “the conflict of the two administrations in one direction has not been resolved until we speculate on which options will be realized, whether the option of voting or the option to postpone and even the option of canceling the budget.”

He continued: “If these wills insist, the budget may not be approved because there is nothing left of the current year, and there are elections in the tenth month and the remaining period is less than 6 months, and even if it is approved, there are questions about how the budget is spent, frankly the budget is much delayed and there are segments of society. It needs to be approved.

PRO-IRANIAN MILITIA THREATEN “RETRIBUTION”  AND DEMANDED A DECREASE IN THE DOLLAR’S PRICE

Baghdad wakes up to a show of force for a pro-Iranian militia

It threatened “retribution” from Al-Kazemi and the United States pledged … and demanded a decrease in the dollar’s price
 

Residents of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, woke up yesterday (Thursday) to a massive show of force carried out by armed militias calling themselves “Rubu Allah”. (The quarter in the Iraqi dialect means the group). It is believed that it is part of the pro-Iranian “Kataib Hezbollah” militia. Al-Baghdadi watched dozens of civilian and military vehicles (vehicles) riding in masked gunmen carrying various types of launchers and light and medium machine guns, as they roamed the capital’s streets, without being intercepted by government security forces.

Amidst the striking official silence about the armed militia parade, which was met with widespread condemnation and criticism, the spokesman for the Joint Operations Command, Major General Tahsin al-Khafaji, said in statements: “We were surprised by the clips (about the military parade) on social media, and the intelligence and security effort began to find out the reasons.” . Al-Khafaji announced the end of the armed demonstrations. The Iraqi government has not issued any official statement about what happened (until the moment of preparing this report).


In turn; The “Popular Mobilization Authority” categorically denied the existence of any military movement of its units inside the capital, Baghdad, and said in a statement: “(The Commission) confirms that the movements of (the crowd) come within the orders of the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces and in coordination with (the Joint Operations Command), and that the brigades ( The crowd) are called by numbers, not by other names, and its directorates carry the well-known official designations.

Interpretations varied about the goals behind the “Rubu Allah” parade in central Baghdad. In a statement, the militia warned that the government had not responded to four points; Among them was a “threatening message” to the United States of America. And threatened Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi with “retribution.”


It also called on the Iraqi Council of Representatives to “reduce the price of the dollar against the Iraqi dinar.” And she warned the politicians that she singled out the leader of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Massoud Barzani, from “deliberately delaying and delaying the approval of the budget in order to obtain their own gains.”

Last December, the Iraqi government reduced the exchange rate of the Iraqi dinar against the dollar by about 15 percent, in order to meet the deficit of the financial budget and to deprive banks, some of which are linked to Iranian banking networks, from the large profits from the differences in dollar prices in the daily currency auction conducted by The Central Bank of Iraq, and between its prices in the local market.

The leader of the “Sadrist movement”, Muqtada al-Sadr, in a tweet on Twitter yesterday, implicitly referred to the issue of some parties benefiting from the previous dollar price, from which some banks were making huge profits, when he said: “One of the militias resorted to the military parade. The armed forces and the massive deployment in the beloved capital, Baghdad, for a demand such as the exchange of the dollar ».

He stated that “the decision to raise the dollar exchange has benefits and harms, and therefore we left its decision in the hands of specialists who are knowledgeable about economic matters, but the people should not be harmed much, especially with the presence of greed and high prices in the markets.” Al-Sadr and his bloc in parliament support the government’s actions by lowering the exchange rate of the dinar against the dollar.
Al-Sadr added that “resorting to weapons to fulfill the demands is unacceptable, and the government must prevent it from occurring again.” These militias think that they will gain the people’s sympathy for them. Both; Violence is beyond the sympathy of the people. ” Al-Sadr demanded the “Popular Mobilization Authority” to punish the party that conducted the show in the event that it belonged to the “crowd” or “declared innocent.”


The “Peace Brigades” militia affiliated with Sadr, last February, conducted a military parade in Baghdad under the pretext of coordination with the government due to the presence of security threats, which insulted Al-Sadr’s credibility and exposed him and his movement to wide criticism.

Away from the exchange rate issue; Some Iraqi trends believe that the parade of the “Rubu Allah” militia affiliated with “Kataib Hezbollah” aims to “disturb the atmosphere of the summit that brings Al-Kazemi together with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi and Jordanian King Abdullah II next Saturday, and create a feeling of insecurity.” The capital, Baghdad ». Some sources close to the Iraqi government say that “Tehran is very disturbed by the Iraqi – Egyptian and Jordanian rapprochement, so it moved its militias in Baghdad to destabilize it with the aim of influencing any potential rapprochement between Iraq and its Arab surroundings.”

A source close to Al-Kazemi’s government affirms that the latter is “aware of all the dimensions and movements of the militias that are trying to draw him into the bloodshed zone for which innocent people are paying.”

CONFLICTING NEWS ABOUT THE EXCHANGE RATE CONFUSES THE STREET … AND CALLS TO QUIT AUCTIONS

The conflicting news about reducing the exchange rate of the dollar against the dinar has cast a shadow over the price in the local markets. At a time when parliamentarians ruled out the possibility of lowering the exchange rate of the dollar against the dinar at the present time or even next week, another POINTED OUT THE DIFFICULTY OF PASSING THE PARAGRAPH RELATED TO THE EXCHANGE RATE IN THE FEDERAL BUDGET in the event that it is not reduced to the old price.

Representative from the State of Law coalition Hussein al-MalikiHe ruled out the possibility of reducing the exchange rate of the dollar against the dinar at the present time or even next week, indicating that what is being presented today through the media regarding reducing the price are statements only and were a reason to confuse the street


Al-Maliki said in an interview with Alsumaria News, “The rule of law and from the first moment to raise the exchange rates, has announced its rejection of that step as it was an incorrect step,” indicating that “THE BUDGET WAS PREPARED ACCORDING TO THE EXCHANGE RATE DECIDED BY THE CENTRAL BANK and the government, and therefore it cannot be reduced at the time.” Present”.

Al-Maliki added, “The price reduction will be after the vote on the budget through the pressure of the House of Representatives and the rise in oil prices globally and the availability of liquidity and financial abundance, then the central bank can review the exchange rate and it can then be reduced, but it will not be the same as the surprise of the rise that occurred from 121 to 146 Rather, the decrease will be gradual by one or two points, and so on until the required price is reached, “noting that” ALL THE CURRENT STATEMENTS THROUGH THE MEDIA HAVE CONFUSED THE STREET AND THE PRICE OF THE DOLLAR ON THE STREET HAS BECOME LESS THAN THE RATE OF THE CENTRAL BANK.

ANALYSIS: IRAQIS ARE GETTING FED UP WITH IRAN 

Sunday, 28 March, 2021 – 05:15 

London – Baghdad – Asharq Al-Awsat

Astain on Iraq’s sovereignty.” That is how an Iraqi army officer describes the billboard glorifying Qassem Soleimani, an Iranian commander who was killed in an American airstrike on Iraqi soil in January 2020.

The hoarding looms over Baghdad’s administrative district, known as the Green Zone. Many Iraqis once hailed Soleimani as hero for mobilizing local forces that beat back ISIS militants, The Economist reported.

But public sentiment in Iraq has turned. THE MASSES WHO CHEERED IRAN AS A LIBERATOR INCREASINGLY SEE IT AS AN OCCUPYING POWER. Iraqi politicians are trying to loosen its grip.

IRANIAN-BACKED MILITIAS STILL HOLD SWAY IN MUCH OF IRAQ. MANY WERE INVOLVED IN THE VIOLENT SUPPRESSION OF ANTI-GOVERNMENT PROTESTS THAT ERUPTED IN 2019. Lately, though, they have lowered their profile. They hang fewer placards celebrating their generals, and appear less often in the streets.

THEY MISS THE GUIDANCE OF SOLEIMANI AND ABU MAHDI MUHANDIS, THE IRAQI HEAD OF AN UMBRELLA GROUP OF PRO-IRANIAN MILITIAS, WHO WAS KILLED IN THE SAME AIRSTRIKE. WITH NO CLEAR CHAIN OF COMMAND, THE MILITIAS ARE SPLINTERING. They were expected to mark the anniversary of the airstrike with a show of force. Thousands of Iraqis marched in Baghdad; the wreck of the car in which Soleimani was killed was displayed. But there were no big retaliatory strikes on American targets, said The Economist.

Iran has long used Shiite politicians in Iraq to assert influence. But Iraq’s prime minister, Mustafa al-Kadhimi, is not playing ball. Unlike most of his predecessors, Mr Kadhimi is not from a party that is close to Iran. Since taking office in May he has enforced American sanctions, preventing Iran from repatriating the billions of dollars it earns from exports to Iraq. (Ali Shamkhani, the head of Iran’s national-security council, summons Iraqi officials to Tehran, Iran’s capital, and curses them for not transferring the cash.)

The prime minister has also annoyed the militias by restoring state control at some border crossings and removing their men from security posts. At his behest NATO is sending 3,500 new troops. “These [Iranian-backed] groups are feeling extremely threatened,” says Maria Fantappie of the Center for Humanitarian Dialogue, a conflict-resolution group based in Geneva.

Such is the level of distrust that foes of Mr Kadhimi, a former intelligence chief, accuse him of passing Soleimani’s location to the Americans, enabling the airstrike. Militiamen have assassinated Mr Kadhimi’s confidants and chased some of his advisers abroad. A group called Kataib Hezbollah, with links to Iran, surrounded his residence in June with pickup trucks full of armed men after he moved to arrest some of its members suspected of killing protesters. Since then Mr Kadhimi has shied away from confronting the militias directly. His cabinet includes ministers from pro-Iranian factions, who are trying to increase the number of militiamen (already in the tens of thousands) on the government payroll. An Iraqi official recalls the prime minister fretting: “If you don’t pay them, they’ll bomb the Americans.”

Sometimes they do anyway. Twice this year Iranian-backed militias have fired rockets at American and allied personnel in Iraq. Were Mr Kadhimi to become more aggressive, that might also invite a stronger response from Iran, which supplies electricity and gas to Baghdad and other big Iraqi cities. If it cut supply during the summer, unrest would undoubtedly follow. The Iraqi officer peeved by billboards has even bigger worries. If Mr Kadhimi tore down the pictures of Soleimani, he says, Iran might use its proxies to grab Iraq’s southern provinces.

“The agreement was signed to implement four projects, the most important of which is the construction of complexes and units to process and invest the associated gas, in two phases with a capacity of 600 million cubic feet standard, seawater project, development of the Artawi field, and the construction of a solar energy project for the Ministry of Electricity with a capacity of 1,000 micahs,” oil minister Ihsan Abdul Jabbar said.

Abdul Jabbar added, “The other giant project is the integrated seawater project, which the ministry has been trying to implement for more than ten years and Total has indicated its willingness to implement the project, and the third project is the project to develop the Artawi field with the aim of maximizing the potential of gas supply and investing the entire quantity of fields that contain high percentages of natural gas production, and the fourth project is to establish facilities to produce 1,000 megawatts of electricity based on solar energy.”

“These four projects have been signed and their final memorandums have been agreed on the scope of technical and commercial work and the subject will be presented to the Council of Ministers for approval, and these projects are one of the largest development projects that Total is implementing outside France, and these projects represent the most important features of the national economy as they focus on gas production, refining, investment and solar energy production,” he said.

“Discussions on these projects have been under way since October 2020, when the technical, commercial, economic and financial matters of the four projects were discussed,” Abdul Jabbar said, adding that “Total will inject billions of dollars in investment and realization of these projects.”

Electricity Minister Majid Mahdi Hantoush signed a principles agreement with France’s Total to implement a project to produce 1,000 mica watts of solar energy.

“The signing of the agreement today with the principles between Total, Basra Oil Company and South Gas Company for a major gas investment project in the Artawi field, the West Qurna 2 field and the Majnoon field as the first phase with a capacity of 300 maqnoons and another 300 maqqq as a second phase of basra gas field,” said Ministry of Extraction Undersecretary Karim Hattab.

 AFTER WEEKS OF DELAY, IRAQ’S COUNCIL OF REPRESENTATIVES PASSES BUDGET FOR 2021

SULAIMANI — After weeks of delays caused by disagreements between the political parties, Iraq’s Council of Representatives passed the Federal 2021 Budget Law on Wednesday (March 31) .

The session was scheduled for 1 p.m. but was delayed because of a lack of quorum. Voting began at 4:30 p.m. in the presence of 215 lawmakers out of 325 and concluded at 8:00 p.m.

The legislation set the price of a barrel of oil at $42, well below current Brent prices.

Among the major sticking points was the devaluation of the Iraqi dinar. The legislation set the US dollar peg at 1,450 Iraqi dinars.

After several hours of voting, lawmakers approved Article 11 of the legislation, which governs the Kurdistan Region’s share.

It will receive 9.5 trillion Iraqi dinars ($6.5 billion), which will be disbursed in monthly increments, in return for submitting 250,000 barrels of crude oil per day to Iraq’s oil marketer SOMO for export. The federal government will be able to cut off funds in the event of non-compliance.

A number of Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) officials, including KRG Deputy Prime Minister Qubad Talabani, were present at the Council of Representatives during the latter stages of the vote on the legislation to observe. Talabani led many of the talks aimed at hammering out the deal between Erbil and Baghdad.

Lawmakers voted against Article 20 of the law, which would have introduced an income tax on the salaries of public sector workers, or Article 38, which deals with investment. Article 41 was tabled for consideration at a later date.

Also on the agenda is the presentation of a request submitted and signed by 172 lawmakers on whether to dissolve parliament early, but the meeting concluded without taking up the measure.

Before to the session, the Shia bloc held a meeting at the house of Hadi al-Amri, the head of the Fateh Alliance, to coordinate. The Finance Committee held a separate meeting to amend some of the provisions in the draft and ready it for the vote.

The parliament’s media office said in a statement on Tuesday that the names of attendees and absences will be published publicly.

In ending I want everyone to know your constant prayers in the fight against evil is working in the battle against the corruption of Iran in Iraq, the corruption of the democrat party in the USA and the corruption of the labor party in the UK. Yes, your prayers ARE WORKING. God has guided these patriotic men and women on this new battle field. It is a battle for the mind filled with propaganda and lies. He has guided the honest, patriots of Iraq, the USA and the UK to fight for their homeland.

So, this new war now on our citizens is underway. 3 corrupt countries, 3 heroic men and 3 miracles. God’s Hand At Work!

New battles are raging every day over corruption. These are battles to save our societies from the corrupt politicians and secret societies who are bent on taking what they want from our current wealth and from future generations without our permission. It is a battle against this crooked idealism of globalization and a One World Government of enslavement.

We must keep praying for the end to the rapid corruption and enslavement of people. We must pray for our leaders that they may be anointed by the Holy Spirit and guided to do God’s work. We must stand by them and let them know we are still there to support them, even after the election is over. I have composed a prayer maybe we can all pray today in our own way and until the reinstatement of the Iraq dinar occurs.

PRAYER

“For all leaders of all nations, that they may be anointed by the Holy Spirit to do God’s will and work to bring about abundance and prosperity to their nation. That they may listen to the Holy Spirit for guidance in fighting this war on us, our minds and our children.  

To fight this waging war on corruption, our freedoms, our liberties, socialist plans and injustice.

To bring all those corrupt to justice and pay for their crimes no matter how high up in the government or politics they are.

To end the corona virus “man-made crisis” and to awaken people everywhere of the dark side and the tools it will use to gain power and control.

That the FREE WORLD may be a shining example for the rest of the entire planet.

In the name of Jesus Christ our King and Savior, Amen”  

P.S. (Please if you can – say the rosary every day. You can do it while you take your daily run or walk. You can do while you lie in bed in the morning or nighttime before sleep. You don’t even need a set of rosary beads as you can use your ten fingers …lol..lol..lol… 😊 )

Auf Wiedersehen

Much love to ya all,
