What is really going on with this Russia vs Ukraine conflict?

You do want to know the facts, don’t you?

You are not going to get the facts from the major news media stations. Either they don’t know what is really going on or don’t care to research, or they do know and are being told not to broadcast it. Instead, they push the narrative the Biden administration wants them to push. So, now at about a month into this invasion has anyone told you as of yet why Russia attacked Ukraine? No, there has not been any explanation. One country does not just attack another country in this day and age. So, today let us get down to the TRUTH as to why Russia attacked Ukraine. But remember this is multi-faceted and complicated.

First let me assure you this is not the start of WW3, but it is very unfortunate that innocent lives have to be sacrificed for the sake of power and control.

Let us take a step back to 2014 and see what was going on in Kiev Ukraine back then….

You might want to watch this prophetic word next. Go to about the 16:00 mark.

Is the Biden administration just a puppet of the globalist new order? Is he just supporting a global agenda item in not reacting to this situation appropriately? Is someone dictating to him how to react? Maybe his dementia is as bad as we all thought? Let us look at the facts.

First lets watch a prophetic words from God given by Kim Clement almost a decade ago about Russia and Ukraine.

FACT: This ongoing turmoil in Ukraine has once again sparked by debate about European energy dependence on Russia for natural gas (LNG). That debate is not new and has been revitalized repeatedly since the first major supply disruption in 2006, which took place after several decades of fairly stable supplies. 

For the EU countries, there are long-term plans by the G7 that will exclude a significant share of Russian natural gas in supplying their energy needs for Europe. But how does the G7 countries make such a drastic change? How do they pull it off?

What is the long-term goal of this coming energy source switchover in the EU from Russian LNG?

Overall, the utilization rates of LNG regasification capacity will increase substantially in the coming years in Europe. In due time, LNG from North America is expected to be competitive in parts of Europe, particularly in the U.K., Netherlands and Belgium. However, it is important to emphasize that our analysis suggests that LNG should not be seen as a substitute for Russian natural gas, but rather as a substitute for declining European domestic natural gas production. Can you see why there is no overwhelming response by any of the EU and NATO countries over this invasion by Russia?

Do you think Russia is just going to stand by and let it happen? Is this free enterprise and capitalism? Remember Russia is now part of the World Trade Organization (WTO). There will have to be some adjustment in markets. Is Russia just reacting to this G7 plan?

Is the European Union (EU) and United Nations (UN) really behind the cause of this invasion into Ukraine? Is this just another energy conflict? What will this conflict amount to in the long-term?

We know for a fact that weening off of Russian energy has been a long-erm goal of the EU for almost 2 decades. So now we are witnessing a very drastic policy interventions, to make the change expected in the European gas supply mix for LNG.

Why now?

It is now time to enforce this changeover as they found a weak president in the US that was necessary to allow this to happen. This shows us the clout of the EU under the One World Government concept. Remember the power of this One World Government is still in its infancy stages, but the more you allow them to have the more they will take.

But there is also much, much more to this story as to why the U.S. Biden administration is not supporting is NATO allies with Ukraine.

FACT: The Republic of Georgia wanted to sell LNG to Ukraine and so Russia stepped in and attacked Georgia back in August 2008. Only we did not get the truth then either about why this conflict actually was taking place. We were all told that time it was a humanitarian conflict, as they needed to hide the real reason.

FACT: Under the presidency of Obama, his vice president Biden traveled to Ukraine. Later his son Hunter Biden becomes a member of the board of directors on Boersma Energy on an absorbent salary. This is of course money laundering for Biden family to force Ukraine and give U.S. clout to change over from Russia LNG gas lines to Boersma gas lines coming from Romania and other countries. This is of course bribery and a quid pro quo. This was yet another attempt to try to complete the G7 changeover of energy in Europe since the Russians in years prior stopped the LNG pipeline from Georgia.

Does this news media broadcast sound familiar?
Yes, its is like De Je Vu with the Ukraine news today. iI this coincidental?
Same old scenario, just a different day and country.

How did this effect the Trump Administration?

Remember under the Trump administration in 2019 there was an issue with this energy crisis in Ukraine too only we, the general public, were not told the TRUTH about what was really behind all the accusations of a Quid Pro Quo with Trump. When the Trump administration started it’s investigation of Boersma Energy the deep state, under Obama/Hillary and Biden, quickly changed the direction of attention on the real issue of energy and tried to force false allegations about Trump and corruption (which simply did not exist).  Later Trump was accused of a Quid Pro Quo from a phone call to Ukraine to try to learn more. The democrats then tried to harass him into submission. Then even later the democrats tried to impeach him over doing his job as president in dealing with Ukraine.

When Trump visited Russia, he talked extensively with Putin and got the truth. Do you remember as a result of this visit the news media and corrupt democrat politicians even tried to silence any real accomplishments out of these Putin meetings with again accusations of corruption and colluding with Russia (who, by the way was not the enemy of the U.S. as the Iron Curtain has already been torn down decades ago). This was accomplished prior to these Quid Pro Quo accusations. So Trump was already ahead of this crisis when this Quid Pro Quo stuff came out. The democrats were only trying to do damage control by subverting the attention to Trump away from themselves.

Trump then sent Rudy Giuliana (his lawyer) to Ukraine, and Rudy received all the files on why Hunter was being investigated by the Attorney General of Ukraine. Boersma Energy had to back off.  The issue settled down and all was quite again. But later Trump was bashed and accused of being buddies with a communist country which was in fact not even any longer communistic. Didn’t anyone tell these democrats the cold war was over? Isn’t Russia a member of the WTO? The democrats also wanted to “package” this idea in the minds of the general public in the U.S. population that “once again Trump was colluding with the Russians”. Really? Kind of like a told you so. But in fact, it was all just rubbish and made up nonsense by the democrats. I have to hand it to them though it was a really good propaganda effort by the major news media.

Then in November 2020 Biden steps into the US presidency.

Then a years later in 2022 this issue of energy supply with Ukraine starts back up. Coincidence? 

We are being told the latest G7 meeting strategized with many policies as to how they would orchestrate this LNG changeover in European countries.

I don’t want to sound too negative on this LNG change over since aren’t we supposed to have competitive markets in a free-capitalistic economies? Right? So it this really what the EU and G7 stands for?

There are other important issues to remember here:

1.Russia using military force to force the continuance of Russian LNG. Why are they doing this?

2.The conflict of interest with the Biden family under Boersma Energy to supply LNG over Russian LNG

3. The U.S. not supporting our NATO allies over this situation now occurring in Ukraine with sanctions or preventing Russian attacks. Maybe the U.S. could supply weapons to fight off Russian aggression? Why has Biden not yet done this?

4.Who or what organization is really behind orchestrating the cause of what we are now witnessing in the Ukraine?  

There are all so many questions yes to be answered and so we all should not be so quick to judge who is the bad guy and who is the good guys in this situation. I am not defending Russia as they are killing innocent people needlessly. Someday soon the TRUTH will be exposed and someone will cover this story in an honest news media channel. But to me right now, it essentially looks like Biden is getting paid off to look the other way, as his son Hunter is influencing Boersma Energy usage in Ukraine and the EU.  The investigation of Hunter Biden is already in motion with the lap top evidence. So it will not be long.

Russia, by not backing off, is a major problem for president Biden and will most likely be yet another downfall of his administration, like Afghanistan. This is going to haunt him.

FACT: Trump administration suspected something wrong with the LNG situation way back in 2018. Trump then visited Putin and learned all about what was going on. That was a primary part of his visit. Does Trump support free enterprise and allowing the EU to phase out Russian LNG?

Yes, of course Trump does support a free enterprise system but not the globalist agenda. This is at the heart of the problem. He saw the potential for the EU backed by the UN to use NATO forces as their globalist strong arm to force Russia out of the LNG market in the EU beginning with Ukraine. I ask you how do you feel about these globalists using NATO forces for their globalist schemes?

This does not sit right with me and the EU also knows of our sentiment as this is predictable. Is this why the EU wants to build up its military forces and actually have its own EU Miliary forces independent of any NATO forces? Yes this concept as been in the making now for years and all they need is the funding.

Is this dangerous for the security of the planet? Will the EU go to any means to secure their globalist agenda even at the risk of war? Oh…but they say it’s not the EU its the UN behind all this corruption. Think about this —> Adolf Hitler conquered almost all of Europe in the 40’s and had absolute control over it. How many bullets, tanks and bombs did it take for the UN to obtain control over all of Europe with the concept of the European Union (EU). Remember that “absolute power corrupts absolutely”. The EU was promised to be solely an ‘economic solution” so how does having its own military forces then be justified? It does not take a rocket scientist to see how the EU is nothing more than the foundation for the One World Government.

Remember also that the Iraqi wars were not about freedom and democracy but rather about securing the oil and more importantly securing the revenues from it since 2003 as the Iraq people have been ripped off. Where did all this revenue go? They now blame COVID and ISIS for all this loss of revenue but in reality the drop in oil prices did not occur over night. Through the decades since 2003 there has been enormous spikes in oil prices and so where did all these billions go? Can’t come up with these false narratives to justify missing stolen money. Iraq is still is shambles and their currency is still almost at the worthless rate. But we know the true VALUE is not reflected in its RATE. We are not stupid.

But the situation may get worse as they will now try to create the same nightmare in Ukraine they created in Iraq only this will be a free for all for the corrupt Russians. We know these US politicians really don’t give a damn about what happens in Iraq since they already exchanged their currency and made billions in 2012 and 2013. This was all part of the stolen billions. How can they legally justify their exchanges since the rate was legally only 1/8 of a penny and not even yet on FOREX? if they can trade their holdings why can’t everyone else? Many of these politicians literally entered one room of the bank, purchased dinar and then exchanged it in the next room. They had inside information on deals with China and so where able to take advantage of enormous rates on the dinar. if it wasn’t for some major protests by the dinar investment community, they would have consumed all of the contract pool. They can try to justify it since the Central Bank sets the rate (program rate) as long as they are not yet on FOREX. But this all boils down to corrupt U.S. politicians.

Could this be the delay in holding off the FOREX reinstatement for so long? Is this now catching up to them and their corruption schemes are about to be exposed? Do they really  have any interest is seeing Iraq survive and prosper now since they already rapped and reaped money from the country?

Do you see now why the democrats tried to twist the facts and accuse Trump of a Quid Pro Quo in Ukraine to get him out of the picture and confuse what is really happening in Ukraine and with the LNG. This goes much deeper than Biden corruption and Russia. This is a globalist agenda item and it is all spelled out in the plans of what they want accomplish for energy supply in Europe. This is a blueprint of what happened in Iraq for oil only Russia is now attacking not the U.S. and for LNG sales.

There is always a money-making scheme in the background we just need to research to find it. Once you have control and power you can do anything you want…. even kill innocent people…..

Can Iraqis Expel Iran From Their Country?

(219) Can Iraqis Expel their Iranian Occupiers? with Amatzia Baram – YouTube

Matzia Baram, Middle East Forum writing fellow and professor emeritus at the University of Haifa, spoke to a March 15 Middle East Forum webinar about the achievements and failures of Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi, as well as his policy recommendations.

According to Baram, the assassination of IRGC General Qassem Soleimani in January 2020 opened the door for a prime minister with a more “neutral” and “balanced” approach to relations with America and Iran, in contrast to Iraq’s prior “staunchly” pro-Iranian and anti-American prime ministers. As a consequence of Soleimani’s absence, the powerful pro-Iranian militias in Iraq are less organized, and thereby less effective.

Mustafa Al-Kadhimi ascended to the prime ministry in May 2020 with the endorsement of Barhim Salah, the Kurdish moderate who is president of Iraq, and Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, the influential Iraqi Shia cleric highly regarded as a “spiritual guide” by Shia throughout the world, which accounts for the pro-Iranian Iraqi parliament’s acceptance of Kadhimi.

Baram listed Kadhimi’s achievements as follows:

  1. The Iraqi army is “behind him, by and large,” with “almost all the generals” and most of the middle-level officer corps supporting the prime minister.
  2. Iraq is on track to hold new elections in October with a new electoral law that promises to limit voter intimidation.
  3. An anti-corruption campaign has “begun the march” against widespread governmental corruption, with half a dozen former senior officials sentenced to prison terms and several others currently awaiting trial.
  4. Iraqi state police and military forces have taken control over roughly 25% of Iraq’s border crossings, especially in the north, where Kurdish and American forces have been cooperative.
  5. Kadhimi’s government has drafted a “reasonable” draft budget.
  6. The government has issued a White Paper on resuscitating the Iraqi economy. “It’s just a declaration of intent … but even that is important in itself.”
  7. There has been “limited development of local electricity production” in three southern provinces.
  8. There has been “far less violence against protesters” on Kadhimi’s watch.
  9. There have been some “very limited successes” against remaining ISIS forces in Iraq, and modest gains in rebuilding Mosul, which was largely destroyed under ISIS occupation. But Baram stressed the need for Kadhimi to encourage Iraqi Sunnis, many of whom are now refugees in Europe, to return to rebuild their communities.

According to Baram, the following are the main failures that still hamper progress in Iraq under Kadhimi:

Militias

As the former head of domestic security, Kadhimi is adept at securing his personal safety, but overall the domestic security in Iraq is still a pressing issue as the prime minister struggles to control militias. Despite the military’s support for Kadhimi, it is not powerful enough to take on the militias.

9072.jpg

Energy

A large percentage of Iraq’s energy is supplied by Iran, as Iraq’s large gas reserves and electricity infrastructure are mismanaged by Iraqi officials. Although Iraq signed an agreement in 2019 to link its electrical grid to the Arab Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states, “Iran doesn’t like it” and has worked to “sabotage” implementation of the agreement. “For Iran, Iraq is a milking cow, and so why should Iran support Iraqi energy independence?”

The Private Sector

The private sector is frozen due to Iran’s “dumping policy” of flooding the country with cheap goods, which is particularly devastating to Iraq’s agriculture and light industry. Private sector development is bogged down by red tape, corrupt officials, and the plethora of militias who shakedown businesses for “protection” money. Some 60% of Iraqi jobs are paid for by the government, causing a severe budgetary drain.

Iraq is “very rich,” but “all this money is … sinking into the sand.”

The lack of private sector jobs is a formidable challenge for Kadhimi as he needs to provide employment for the Iraqi youth and the lower and working classes who supported him “The government budget is crumbling under the huge pressure of paying government salaries … and pensions,” Baram said, a strain which can only be alleviated if the private sector is revitalized. This frustratingly vicious cycle of interconnected failures hampers Iraq’s ability to progress. The tragedy is that Iraq “is a very rich oil-producing country but this all goes … nowhere. All this money is … sinking into the sand, disappearing forever.”

Baram offered specific prescriptions for U.S. policy in Iraq:

  1. Support Iraq in holding free and fair elections this year so that Iraq’s parliament will be controlled by pro-reform voices accountable to the Iraqi people and supportive of Kadhimi’s agenda. Most current members of parliament are “not pro-Kadhimi,” said Baram. “They voted for him [to become prime minister] because they had no choice, the alternative was total chaos, but they don’t support him really, they are pro-Iranian.” The U.N. should supervise a democratic voting process.
  2. “Push the Emirates and Saudi Arabia as hard as you can to overcome Iranian counter pressures,” namely by providing electricity and increasing trade and commerce with Iraq.
  3. Assist Iraq in developing its natural gas capabilities to become energy independent.
  4. Take a hard stand against the militias. The U.S. can set an example by retaliating against any and all militia attacks on its forces in Iraq.
  5. Provide economic support to and facilitate investment in Iraq to “turn around the economy and give a huge boost to private entrepreneurs. … [T]hat’s what Iraq needs now more than anything else.”

Baram said Kadhimi has been accused by his detractors of keeping Iraq in “stasis” because he hasn’t crushed the militias or restored the private sector. However, he believes Kadhimi has shown his commitment to Iraq’s success and now is the time for the international community to do its part. “If he is helped by the Arab Gulf states, by America, by Europe in the right places … there is hope” for Iraq.

Does this sound like they are ready and will revalue and then reinstate their dinar any time soon?

Hi Everyone,

I bring you much VERY news today.  …ding dong the wicked witch is dead!

GIVE A GIFT TO MNT GOAT

I decided to allow everyone to give a Free-will GIFT to Mnt Goat on PayPal if you so desire. Here is the link below.

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

As usual, remember that for going on 8 years now, I have taken my own time from my gasthaus business to research and document findings about the revaluation and reinstatement of the Iraqi dinar. At this time more than ever I do not need to spend my time babysitting and holding your hand in this investment. I do it out of understanding that all of us do have the time to go our and research. We are busy with our jobs and raising our children. So, I try to help out. But remember I too am very busy in my daily life running a gasthaus and trying to make ends meet. I am no different yet I take the time out each day to complete the task of my newsletter for you. I do not need to do it, as I know the information before you get it.

Summers usually are our busy time of the year here at the Gasthaus. Last summer was disastrous due to the pandemic. We almost had to close our doors forever. But many of you stepped up and helped out. We have exhausted our savings. Winter too is usually our second season but this year they are keeping this pandemic alive even though it is not a reasonable thing to be doing for practical sense and for health reasons. But they persist now evident only out of a lust for more control and power. The ski slopes are practically bare and the towns are very quite unlike all the years I have lived here. It is scary. The elders say it is like during the war even when Hitler came into power. You can almost even feel the evil surrounding us. I will tell everyone now that if this summer 2021 is as bad as summer 2020 we will not make it without some kind of help.

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:

More news….

Iraq’s Ministry of Planning said the country’s poverty rate has increased to about 27 per cent after the central bank devalued the Iraqi dinar against the US dollar, the official al-Sabah newspaper reported. Doesn’t this sound like the CBI is taking steps to bring Iraq backwards and not forwards? Then why do they say over and over again they are moving the country ahead? This does not sound like “implementing reforms” if you ask me.

To answer these questions, we must take an indebt look down the long-term road and not get caught up in the short-term. Yes, if you were an Iraqi you would be “pissed off” at your government and the CBI for taking such a large devaluation. You would complain and complain because your life is directly impacted. But I can assure all my readers today that there is a main driving force and a purpose for the devaluation. It is beyond what they want to tell the average citizen.

So, the latest on the budget it that it is now, passed, ratified and published in the gazette…all done. They are waiting for the spending part. To spend the budget, they will need to allocate the funds from the CBI to the ministries. They have not yet done that so they have not yet “opened” the budget, if you want to get technical. Remember what I told you? If they open the budget and begin to spend it and we do not see the RV at the same time or very shortly afterwards, they be are hosed again. No RV!

What do I believe will happen?

I will base my beliefs on FACTS and then you too can draw your own conclusions. I have presented the FACTS to you in my recent newsletters. Have you been reading them and absorbing the news? Are you learning anything?

My opinion means absolutely NOTHING unless I can back it up with FACTS.

So, what are the FACTS?

We know that the CBI just told us their goal is to go from 60 billion to 90 billion in their CBI reserves. Just since the December devaluation they have increased the reserves by almost 20 billion (4 months timeframe). This was one reason for the devaluation. But we know that the IMF has told us that at between 45 -50 billion Iraq is financially stabilized.

They also told us that the IMF and the World Bank were instrumental in this process. We also know that corruption was ramped in Iraq as many of the politicians are Iranian puppets. The money laundering through the currency auctions was killing Iraq. Now they told us this under control. How did this happen?

Remember way back when Ali al-Allak, the former governor of the CBI, told us that there were political forces keeping the CBI from controlling the corruption in these auctions. So how did they suddenly figure all this out to curve the corruption? Could the re-assignment of the new governor of the CBI last fall have anything to do with it? Sure it did! And so how did he fix the currency auctions when the former governor could not?  Its called “sacrifice”. They sacrificed the dinar in the short-term for the long-term financial goals. They devalued the currency. This was something the former governor was unwilling to do as I believe he too was an Iranian influenced puppet. But he is now gone. Let’s all sing the song from the Wizard of Oz …ding dong the wicked witch is dead….lol..lol..lol..

Ding Dong the Witch is Dead

This scene from the Wizard of OZ may seem funny to us but doesn’t it have so much relevance today in may aspects both in Iraq and in the USA?

I am now being told by my CBI contact that they are moving ahead aggressively with the RV and will replace the older larger 3 zero notes very soon. This means to us RV time! Do you like RV time? Let’s all hang on to our hats. This is going to be a very interesting month ahead. We could end up rich at the end of the ride.

But where is president Trump?

Again, hang on to your hats. I believe we are also only months away from some startling news in this area too. The USA can not take too much more of this socialist bullshit. Recently we had Maxine Waters once again insurrecting riots and destruction in our cities over this racial card they keep trying to push on us. Isn’t it ironic how they could try to impeach Trump for accusations of insurrection yet she is doing the very same thing (along with her other fellow democrats) and yet nothing is done about it in Congress. We also see the same over the years leading up the 2020 riots of BLM and Antifa. Will they finally crack down on these anti-American ex-patriots? They are nothing but agitators, traitors and communist sympathizers who have entered our government. We know their purpose too, don’t we.

Let’s keep the prayers going. If you don’t know what to pray for try my prayer at the end of each newsletter. The daily rosary always helps too. God Bless everyone.

US TREASURY LIFTS VIETNAM, SWITZERLAND FROM CURRENCY MANIPULATOR LIST

(4/16/21) AP News

The U.S. Treasury has removed Vietnam and Switzerland from the list of nations labeled as currency manipulators, reversing a decision made by the Trump administration in December. 

In its semi-annual report to Congress on currency manipulation, the first under the Biden administration, the U.S. Treasury Department said Friday that no country currently meets the U.S. criteria as a manipulator. It said, however, that Vietnam, Switzerland, as well as Taiwan, will be under enhanced monitoring. 

The Treasury did not designate China as a currency manipulator, something the Trump administration had done in 2019 during a tense trade stand-off with the world’s second largest economy.

The Treasury said Vietnam, Switzerland and Taiwan would be subject to “enhanced engagement” over currency issues, a lower designation that does not carry immediate risks of U.S. trade sanctions.

(We need to see this also now for Iraq, prior to the RV. Remember for us to go to the bank and exchange our dinar Iraq will have to be out of US Treasury, OFAC sanctions. These are not IMF or UN sanctions. They are strictly US sanctions put on the financial and banking sector dealings with Iraq.)

ADVISOR AL-KAZEMI: FLOATING THE CURRENCY LEADS TO THE COLLAPSE OF THE IRAQI MARKET

Mazhar Muhammad Salih, Advisor to the Prime Minister for Financial and Economic Affairs, confirmed, on Monday, that it is not permissible to float the currency in Iraq, indicating that this leads to the collapse of the market.

Saleh said that “it is not permissible to float the currency in Iraq because the market will collapse in this case,” indicating that “the entry and exit of hard currency does not enter the market, which is only an exit for it, but the government is the one that brings this hard currency.”

(Salih is referring to dangers if they floated the dinar within Iraq using the program rate not reinstating and then floating it as an internationally traded currency So what he is really saying is that if they are going to float the currency then first reinstate it.)

Saleh added, “If the government withdraws its hand, the supply will stop and the demand increases, and therefore the market will collapse.”

He pointed out that “the problem in Iraq is that the market is asking and that the state is offering, and in the event that the Central Bank does not sell the dollar, it means that all the supply has stopped and there is no other offer. Because demand will be more than supply. “

He stressed that “the state is the bidder in Iraq, and therefore if the state tends to float, this means that there is no supply and thus prices collapse.”

Floating currency is completely liberalizing the exchange rate, so the government or the central bank does not interfere in determining it directly, but rather it is secreted automatically in the currency market through the supply and demand mechanism that allows setting the national currency exchange rate against foreign currencies.

It is noteworthy that some officials talk from time to time on the need to float and liberalize the currency to preserve the hard currency reserves at the Central Bank.

GOVERNMENT ADVISOR: THE CENTRAL BANK IS WORKING TO STABILIZE THE DINAR’S PURCHASING POWER

Advisor to the Prime Minister for Financial Affairs, Mazhar Muhammad Salih, confirmed the efforts of the Central Bank to work on stabilizing the purchasing power of the Iraqi dinar.

In an interview followed by the information, Saleh said, “The Central Bank is working to meet the desired demand of foreign currency by market forces through the window of monetary policy operations, or the so-called auction, for the purposes of financing foreign trade for the private sector as well as providing a safe level of monetary dollars.”

He pointed out that “the central bank pushed towards the fixed exchange rate with clarity, transparency and ability, with the supply tools in order to lead to stability in price levels, stability of price expectations, a higher degree of certainty in looking at the levels of price stability and reduced transaction risks for market makers and dealers in it.”

He explained that “the monetary policy of the Central Bank seeks to achieve its goals and achieve its goals according to its enforceable law and its quantitative and price tools aimed at stabilizing the purchasing power of the dinar.

Economic expert, Rasim Al-Akidi, identified five factors behind the high exchange rate of the dollar in the local markets, while he stressed that it will not exceed the price of 1550 at the end of this year Al-Aqidi said in an exclusive interview with (Baghdad Today), that “the five reasons are the recent increase in the Central Bank’s sales because there are positive reasons that have led to the rise in the prices of many consumer goods, which pushed the majority of merchants to import, as well as setting a fixed exchange rate ceiling for paying a rate. Not a few citizens are to acquire it again, hoping that there will be an increase in its price as the supply and demand for it continues to increase.

ECONOMIST: THE GOVERNMENT IS PERFORMING A PLAY ON THE PEOPLE TO ACHIEVE GREAT GOALS

A member of the Khobar Center for Economic Studies, Samir Al-Naji, STATED ON SATURDAY THAT THE AL-KAZEMI GOVERNMENT IS PRACTICING A GREAT PLAY OF LYING AND SHADOWING TO ACHIEVE GREAT GOALS.

“The government practices lies and procrastination in implementing its commitments, and it cannot think and find solutions except by cutting citizens’ livelihoods and taking loans,” al-Naji said in a statement to the agency.

He added, “It is sad and shameful what the Finance Minister said about deductions, imposing taxes, and his claim to support the poor while the only victim was the simple citizen. He noted that “the government practices lying, as it is well aware that basic commodities and foodstuffs have increased significantly compared to the 20% reduction in salaries.”

He pointed out that “Al-Kazemi and his finance minister did not find any ideas about the wages and economy crisis except for borrowing three times, while the next step was the encroachment on citizens’ livelihoods without finding any clear economic solution.

AFTER 16 YEARS OF DELAY … A PARLIAMENTARY COMMITTEE TO MOVE THE OIL AND GAS LAW FILE

 
The Parliamentary Oil and Energy Committee has opened the Prime Ministry and the Ministry of Oil for the PURPOSE OF EXPEDITING THE IMPLEMENTATION OF AMENDMENTS TO THE OIL AND GAS LAW AND SENDING IT TO PARLIAMENT.

Committee member Sadiq Al-Sulaiti said, according to the official newspaper, that “THE OIL AND GAS LAW IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT STALLED LAWS, and the Parliamentary Oil Committee has addressed the Prime Minister and the Ministry of Oil for the purpose of expediting the necessary amendments to this law and returning it to the House of Representatives for the purpose of advancing its legislation.”

Al-Sulaiti added, “The law is in the drawers of the government, which is working to complete it, mature it, and treat some of its paragraphs that have objection AND RETURN IT TO PARLIAMENT FOR THE PURPOSE OF INITIATING ITS APPROVAL.”

He explained, “THIS LAW IS THE FUNDAMENTAL SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEMS BETWEEN THE CENTER AND THE REGION, AS IN EVERY BUDGET IT WILL CREATE A CRISIS IN THE MECHANISM FOR SETTLING OIL RECEIVABLES, the mechanism for exporting oil and the mechanism for delivering those receivables and other paragraphs that will be subject to political difference, and may be subject to political auctions as well.”

He pointed out, “The issue does not go beyond being a technical and mathematical one related to revenues and duties and is supposed to be regulated by law,” expressing his hope during the coming period and the remainder of the parliament’s life, that “the government will speed up the completion of this law and return it to Parliament.”

And the central oil and gas law was supposed to be approved since the first year of the adoption of the Iraqi constitution, in 2005, but successive Iraqi governments, with the encouragement of the political forces that formed them, according to observers, have been slow to pass it, like other laws that the Iraqi constitution has drawn its main features, And he left Parliament the power to decide its details through special laws.

(Oil and Gas law implementation….good sign we are about to get this done. Why does this ALWAYS come out just before a decision to RV? Do you see it too? Coincidental…I don’t think so. We know for a FACT this must be done prior to any Reinstatement of the dinar)

Harb said in a clarification followed by “People” (April 19, 2021), that “many years have passed since the name of Iraq has been included in the lists of high-risk countries, with the consequences of this staircase of great political and economic effects, perhaps the first and most important of which is the impact on investment and the reluctance of companies.” “The government of Al-Kazemi and the Central Bank of Iraq have made great efforts, especially in the field of their cooperation, by taking the necessary measures regarding money laundering and terrorist financing.” 

He added, “For a period of time, the Iraqi newspaper Al-Waqi’a has hardly been issued without publishing international procedures and decisions, especially those issued by the special committee linked to the UN Security Council with regard to combating money laundering, terrorist financing and other charges related to seizing the money of those accused of money laundering and terrorist financing, even if not They are Iraqis, and a higher committee has been established in the Central Bank with the mission of combating money laundering and terrorist financing, and these and other measures such as activating the AML / CFT Law No. 39 of 2015, therefore Resolution 392 of 2021 was issued including raising the name of Iraq from among the countries with high risks and thus it deserved The government and the Central Bank deserved praise and praise for their efforts in removing Iraq from the lists of high-risk countries.  

Earlier, the Central Bank of Iraq announced a departure from the British classification of high-risk countries.  

A bank statement, of which Nass received a copy (April 18, 2021), stated that “within the efforts of the Central Bank of Iraq and through the Office of Combating Money Laundering and Combating Financing of Terrorism in developing the business environment within the international compliance standards for combating money laundering and terrorist financing, the British Treasury In the United Kingdom government department, not to include the name of the Republic of Iraq from among the lists of high-risk countries according to Resolution No. 392 of 2021.

He continued, “The fact that Iraq is not included in the list of high-risk countries is positively reflected in facilitating business and entering companies between the two countries, as well as supporting financial operations between the Iraqi banking sector and the United Kingdom.”

APRIL 6 & 8 MNT GOAT NEWS BRIEF

April 6 & 8, 2021 Mnt Goat News Brief

Hi Everyone,

I bring you much news today.   

GIVE A GIFT TO MNT GOAT

I decided to allow everyone to give a Free-will GIFT to Mnt Goat on PayPal if you so desire. Here is the link below.

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

As usual, remember that for going on 8 years now, I have taken my own time from my gasthaus business to research and document findings about the revaluation and reinstatement of the Iraqi dinar. At this time more than ever I do not need to spend my time babysitting and holding your hand in this investment. I do it out of understanding that all of us do have the time to go our and research. We are busy with our jobs and raising our children. So, I try to help out. But remember I too am very busy in my daily life running a gasthaus and trying to make ends meet. I am no different yet I take the time out each day to complete the task of my newsletter for you. I do not need to do it, as I know the information before you get it.

Summers usually are our busy time of the year here at the Gasthaus. Last summer was disastrous due to the pandemic. We almost had to close our doors forever. But many of you stepped up and helped out. We have exhausted our savings. Winter too is usually our second season but this year they are keeping this pandemic alive even though it is not a reasonable thing to be doing for practical sense and for health reasons. But they persist now evident only out of a lust for more control and power. The ski slopes are practically bare and the towns are very quite unlike all the years I have lived here. It is scary. The elders say it is like during the war even when Hitler came into power. You can almost even feel the evil surrounding us. I will tell everyone now that if this summer 2021 is as bad as summer 2020 we will not make it without some kind of help.

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:

Diane H.

William B.

Well, well hello! Finally I can publish my newsletters once again. Seems Facebook censored me for the last time. They blocked my site and I could not even comment to you to tell you where I was. I miss everyone of you!

This was a shame! Yes, shame, shame, shame on these blockers of our 2nd Amendment rights of Free Speech. But I am hear now. I hope to figure out next how to publish my video sets. I have my daughter along with George working on it now. So for now we have the newsletter back and that is a grand beginning…:. Thanks everyone for you monthly support and I hope you will not forget me this month.

So what is hot in the current news?

The 2021 budget is passed and ratified by the president already. To complete the legality of the law, they must now publish it in the gazette then they can open it and spend it. Will we get the RV / RI  in this process?

Currently we have many articles on the status of the effort to get the reform plan completed. The Finance Minister, Allawi said, according to a statement issued on Thursday April 8th, that the committee’s actions and steps will contribute to BUILDING A SOUND AND STABLE FINANCIAL SITUATION FOR THE COUNTRY, which will enhance the approach of preparing budgets for the coming years within the available financial resources to address the lag in strategic projects in the governorates.

So again I have to say I would not expect the RV / RI until the USA gets it act in order and the corruption ends in their government. Trump MUST come back and the voter fraud and other scams exposed. The prophets tell us this is coming and coming VERY soon. Just hang in and PRAY. This is all we really can do  at this point. I do know with the utmost certainty that God is hearing our faithful prayers and he is acting to help up out of this mess.

IRAQ MAINTAINS ITS RANK WITH THE LARGEST GOLD RESERVES

The World Gold Council said, on Wednesday, that Iraq has maintained its 38th position in the world’s largest reserves of the precious yellow meta.

SALEH APPROVES THE GENERAL BUDGET 

On Thursday, the President of the Republic, Barham Salih, ratified the federal fiscal budget law for the current year .

Saleh said that approval comes to secure the necessary needs of our people, and to finance the salaries of employees and retirees and the necessary government expenditures, in a way that achieves social justice for all regions of Iraq and all segments of society.

(Finally we get the 2021 budget passed and ratified. Now what? Some of the gurus say this had to be done in order to see the RV. Really? There is no indication that this HAD TO BE DONE to see the RV. The CBI has not confirmed this RUMOR. But we know that in order to move ahead with the reforms, as they now say in today’s article, that they intend to do, they will need to complete the project to delete the zeros as part of this reform process. Remember these tasks/projects, as part of the reform process, are all in the “white paper”. This white paper is the plan for the next 5 years for Iraq. So we don’t know exactly when they will complete the project to delete the zeros. However if they are really going to complete all the infrastructure projects they will need investors to come and participate. These investors will want to take home $$$ profits. Cetainly 1/8 of a penny value per dinar hardly says profitable.)

ECONOMIST: THE INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND SUGGESTED TO IRAQ THAT THE EXCHANGE RATE SHOULD REMAIN AT 1130

The economist, Hakim Al-Adly, said on Monday that the government’s insistence on keeping the exchange rate at what it is in the budget at 1445 is illogical.

Al-Adli said, in a statement to the information agency, that “what the exchange rates have witnessed from rising may prompt the Iraqi citizen to return to the days of selling window curtains and house doors in order to provide a livelihood for children in light of the obscene price that Iraq will accept when the price of 100 dollars reached 150 thousand Iraqi Dinar”.

He added, “The government’s insistence is illogical regarding the dollar’s ​​exchange rate remaining as it is, and there is no justification for its survival, especially since the International Monetary Bank Fund suggested to Iraq that the dollar price be at the limits of 1130 dinars and not as approved in the budget at 1445.”

He pointed out that “the coming days may witness a big jump in prices, and it is likely that they will increase when the budget reaches the Presidency of the Republic and is approved,” indicating that “we will not be surprised if the dollar price reaches 1550 dinars, as it is a government desire to exhaust the citizen.”

(just remember this devaluation is TEMPORY. We have read already the reasons why they the CBI is doing this. Yes, it’s hard on the citizens in the short run but in the long run they will thank the CBI for the efforts in finally making the hard choices to actually help the country move ahead. Remember they have a new director of the CBI now….. The other crack pot is gone! )

AN IRANIAN REPORT WARNS OF IRAQ’S INSISTENCE ON THE DECISION TO AMEND THE DINAR EXCHANGE RATE!

 An Iranian report warned that the Central Bank of Iraq would proceed with the decision to adjust the exchange rate of the Iraqi dinar against the dollar, while it included a list of tweets transmitted from accounts related to the factions, calling for a reduction in the price of the dollar inside Iraq.  

The report published by the semi-official Iranian channel Al-Alam and followed by “People” (March 22, 2021) quoted economic experts – whom he did not name – that the decision to amend the exchange rate of the dollar “restructured the banks because they do not participate in the currency auction and that the coming period may witness a merger process.” For banks with each other. ”  

The report used tweets from accounts and “mob” figures who organized a campaign against the decision to amend the Iraqi dinar exchange rate against the US dollar.  

Officials in the Iraqi government say that the decision to adjust the exchange rate has harmed the interests of many parties that were exploiting the auction of selling dollars to inflate their fortunes by using “banking interfaces” accused of facilitating the exit of hard currency outside Iraq.  

The government also bets that the decision will, in the medium term, contribute to the recovery of agriculture and national industry, and reduce imports from neighboring countries and others.

AFTER 18 YEARS OF CHANGE. THE ECONOMY IS LIBERATING AND LEAVING THE WAR.

Economists, among other development transformations, which Iraq was able to achieve after 2003, stressed that the elimination of the “war economy” that hindered the lives of the Iraqi people and deteriorated their stability, a clear shift towards a market economy, openness to foreign investment, and an end to the unbridled inflation that led to the collapse of the value of the dinar, is the most important achievement that Iraq has been able to achieve. In addition to many economic achievements, which have contributed to the high rates of sustainable development, and led to Iraq being an important investment kiss for many of the world’s largest companies, but economists have diagnosed a number of points, which they stressed are still without real treatment, putting at the forefront of those points, increased unemployment rates, high poverty rates and population pressure, whose landscape is constantly complicated.

REMOVING THE EFFECTS OF WARS

Saleh, the Paris Club Agreement signed in November 2004 with the international financial community with its governments and financial institutions, is at the forefront of important economic events, in which Iraq was granted the privilege of writing off 80 percent of pre-1990 debt (cancelled or become law under cancellation) estimated at $100 billion out of a total debt of about 128 billion dollars Dollars.”

ELIMINATING INFLATION

Ending the era of unbridled inflation, one of the important transformations of the Iraqi economy, as the prime minister’s financial adviser says, stressing that «that inflation reached its annual averages by about 50 percent or more before 2003 to fall to a rate of only 6 percent at the end of the first decade of the current 21st century, which strengthened the standard of living of individuals through the stability of the purchasing power of the dinar The Iraqi.”

“The annual per capita gdp increased from $750 per year before 2003 to nearly $6,000, an important achievement that contributed to the recovery of the economic situation,” Saleh said.

For the individual. 

He pointed out that salaries, pensions, government pensions and social welfare aid, which currently include nearly 8 million Iraqi citizens, are about seven times higher than their pre-2003 rates, and the number of beneficiaries has increased by about five times per segment.

Them.

FISCAL POLICY SUCCESS

“The success of fiscal policy after 2003 in building the joints of stability and economic prosperity, as well as the success of this policy for the first time in the history of Iraq “according to the chancellor” in providing a rating of creditworthiness to Iraq, and since 2015 for the first time in the country’s history Financial. Iraq has a good and stable credit rating at the current level of B.”

CENTRAL AND STABILITY OF THE DINAR

 “The central bank’s monetary policy succeeded in imposing stability on the Iraqi dinar at its internal and external value, and granted the freedom of external transfer of all legitimate operations, which serve the movement of trade and business in return for the ability to build reserves in foreign currency, whose balance is more than 30 times higher than before 2003, and is managed in a large secure investment portfolio,” Saleh said.

 For Iraq,” he said.

Agricultural activity has also continued to be supported, according to the government adviser, particularly the grain production sector, where farmers are supported by prices, to encourage them and to enhance national food security, as cultivated land has doubled from 6 million dunums to more than 11 million dunums today thanks to this support, water control and marketing Regular.

THE REALITY OF THE ECONOMY

“No one can deny that there has been a change in the reality of the Iraqi economy and the international outlook on Iraq, and a number of things have been achieved,” said Raed Abdul Sattar, vice president of the Iraqi Federation of Industries. 

The economy of families has seen a clear improvement, and this indicates the percentages of excessive consumption in many times,” pointing out that “the ambition of the economic circles is greater than achieved, where Iraq can be a new economic tiger on the scene of the world economy, qualified for this place and seriously, because of its wealth and geographical location and effects of interest to most of the world’s population but Most of them.”

INDUSTRIAL SECTORS

He pointed out that “the change has happened but what is required is that the movements of work in Iraq be escalated benefiting the country and the economies of the region and the world, where there is a correlation between a global Iraqi achieving integration that is almost not achieved in other countries, pointing out the importance of moving towards correcting the paths that lead to the activation of the national economy, and help to start to develop the industrial and agricultural sectors, and address population pressure, unemployment and other problems.” 

ECONOMIC TRANSFORMATIONS

Member of the Baghdad Economic Forum Hadi Zubeidi said: «The economic arena after 2003 witnessed a wide spread towards the establishment of economic forums, aimed at contributing to the drawing of a road map for economic transformations, witnessed by the country highlights this phenomenon in the country in the most urgent need to develop the joints of south work  Al-Watani.

He pointed out the imperative of active contribution in saving our economy from its challenges, and the most prominent of these blocs is to move away and not change concessions towards a particular specialty, but to work to activate the most important projects and the extent of their contribution to achieving quick returns and directing loans towards them, in order to contribute to reducing the dependence on imports that drain the currency.”

SUCCESSFUL NEGOTIATIONS

Dr. Amr Hisham, academic, focused on “the importance of extinguishing the debt registered against Iraq to various international actors, and said: “As a result of the successful negotiations led by Iraq in extinguishing its foreign debt, he was able to reduce 30 percent of the debt of the Paris Club when the agreement was signed and a 30 percent reduction when signing with the International Monetary Fund on economic reform and a 20 percent reduction conditional on the submission of an IMF report supporting Iraq’s creation with his obligations.”

IRAQ’S COMMITMENT

He added, “The debts of the Arab Gulf countries, although most of them are grants or loans without interest, but they demanded them, except for the United Arab Emirates, which has 100 percent debt, Iraq has committed as a indebted country to pay its foreign debts and succeeded, as the external debt department in the Ministry of Finance has followed up on the procedures for settling the commercial debt of the foreign sector, and the adoption of this sensitive file is one of the most important economic achievements that benefited the country after the events of political change For 2003.

(This article is all super fantastic news for all of us today. Remember that sometimes in order to see the needed level of prosperity you must make the necessary hard choices and sacrifices in the short term (such as the dinar devaluation). However in the long-term by making these hard choices they can revise the economy and finally come out of a war torn economy and see the wealth and abundance they so well deserve.)

Hi Everyone,

I bring you much news today.   

GIVE A GIFT TO MNT GOAT

I decided to allow everyone to give a Free-will GIFT to Mnt Goat on PayPal if you so desire. Here is the link below.

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

As usual, remember that for going on 8 years now, I have taken my own time from my gasthaus business to research and document findings about the revaluation and reinstatement of the Iraqi dinar. At this time more than ever I do not need to spend my time babysitting and holding your hand in this investment. I do it out of understanding that all of us do have the time to go our and research. We are busy with our jobs and raising our children. So, I try to help out. But remember I too am very busy in my daily life running a gasthaus and trying to make ends meet. I am no different yet I take the time out each day to complete the task of my newsletter for you. I do not need to do it, as I know the information before you get it.

Summers usually are our busy time of the year here at the Gasthaus. Last summer was disastrous due to the pandemic. We almost had to close our doors forever. But many of you stepped up and helped out. We have exhausted our savings. Winter too is usually our second season but this year they are keeping this pandemic alive even though it is not a reasonable thing to be doing for practical sense and for health reasons. But they persist now evident only out of a lust for more control and power. The ski slopes are practically bare and the towns are very quite unlike all the years I have lived here. It is scary. The elders say it is like during the war even when Hitler came into power. You can almost even feel the evil surrounding us. I will tell everyone now that if this summer 2021 is as bad as summer 2020 we will not make it without some kind of help.

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.

he currency window started out as a temporary measure.

link

The central bank is holding a daily auction (window) for the sale of foreign currency to banks, a measure taken after 2003 to raise the value of the dinar, which was collapsed in the 1990s, because this measure was proposed to be temporary until the currency stabilizes, and according to the advisor of the Iraqi Institute for Economic Reform, it was to not continue the window selling the currency, to stabilize the dinar against the dollar in subsequent years, but continued nonethemore.

“It is the central bank’s duty to stabilize the exchange rate by receiving the proceeds from the sale of oil in dollars, and pumping the dinar to the Ministry of Finance in return, to support the approval of the budget, especially operational ones,” Chancellor Hussein al-Khaqani told Al-Sabah.

“Before 2003, the central bank was not working on this measure, but the circumstances that followed that year necessitated the central bank to take a temporary measure that would raise the value of the dinar, which was very low against the dollar, and this was the opening of a window for the sale of the currency, in which banks participate until a balance in the market and the adjustment of the exchange rate,” al-Khaqani said.

“The central bank receives two reports (morning and evening) on the prices of basic items (food) within the daily market movement for the purpose of supplying or reducing the supply of the dollar, in the currency exchange window, accordingly,” he said.

“The central bank’s current dollar is down significantly from about 200 million dollars a day to much less, especially after the recent exchange rate adjustment on the dinar,” he said.

According to a statement issued by the central bank, its sales of foreign currency, on Tuesday, reached 25 million, 905 thousand and 199 dollars with the participation of seven banks to meet the demands for the strengthening of assets abroad, and the central noted that data on foreign currency sales are sent to the General Authority for Taxation at the end of the fiscal year, and the central point that “the classification of banks and companies depends on the level of compliance with the rules and standards of compliance with the anti-money laundering and terrorist financing law No. 39 of 2015, and the instructions of the Central Bank on the sale and purchase of currency, and does not represent, and does not represent, Rating is an assessment of the performance of banks that are subject to other international standards.”

For his part, banking specialist Samir Al-Nassiri suggested that the Ministry of Finance implement the window of sale of the currency under its supervision and the evacuation of the central bank’s responsibility from it.

Al-Nassiri told Al-Sabah that the proposal would be to take over the Iraqi Bank of Commerce, its subsidiary, and the central bank’s role in the currency sale window, by transferring the revenues of the ministry’s sales of crude in dollars to the Ministry of Finance in dinars, and the deresponsibility of the central bank.

The recovery of the currency market in Iraq

link

The unanimous vote of the Iraqi Council of Representatives, the day before yesterday (Wednesday), on the Federal Budget Law for 2021, left a general impression of satisfaction at the official and popular levels, as it ended many months of disagreements and quarrels between the political blocs, as well as the effects of the lack of approval of the budget on the movement And the market and trade, which showed signs of returning to activity, yesterday, through the relative rise in the movement of buying and selling currencies.

Traders in the stock market in the Shorja area in Baghdad told Asharq Al-Awsat that “the market witnessed good movement and the price of the dollar rose slightly against the dinar, as a result of approving the budget.” They attributed the reasons for this to that “traders and even ordinary citizens had expected that the decision to reduce the value of the dinar against the dollar, which was approved by the government last year, would be reversed. However, the approval of the budget while the exchange rate remained in a state encouraged the return of market movement to normal.”

While the presidents of the Republic, Barham Salih, the ministers Mustafa Al-Kazemi and the rest of the heads of the political blocs welcomed the approval of the law, the governmental and political leaders in the Kurdistan Regional Government seemed the most happy to overcome the budget obstacles in order to vote on them, given the marathon of negotiations conducted by the Kurdish delegations in Baghdad to install the right of the region in the budget that collides With the objections of many political and governmental parties in Baghdad as a result of disagreements with the authorities of the region, and within them, their lack of commitment to hand over to the federal government the share of 250 thousand barrels of oil per day established in the federal budgets during the past years.

In addition to the region’s success in negotiating, the issue of approving the budget represents a “lifeline” for Kurdish leaders and leaders, given the severe financial crisis that the region has been suffering from for years, during which the authorities were unable to pay the salaries of their employees for about 6 months of each year with the imposition of high deduction rates that reach To 25 percent of the value of the salary, which exposed the regional authorities to harsh popular criticism that prompted citizens and employees in some provinces to demonstrate and declare a strike for work.

The numerous statements issued yesterday on the governmental and political leaderships in Erbil showed the extent of the relief left by the approval of the federal budget, where the President of the region, Nechirvan Barzani, congratulated the Iraqi people and the Presidency of Parliament and his deputies, as well as thanked the efforts of Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi in “easing differences and achieving agreement.” He thanked the efforts of the Kurdish delegation negotiating with Baghdad.

Barzani added in a statement that “for the purpose of solving problems, achieving stability, urbanization and a better future, Iraq needs joint cooperation and joint action, and we must all support this trend.”

He expressed his “hope that all parties abide by the law, and ratification of the budget can become a good start and an incentive to solve the rest of the problems of the Kurdistan region and the federal government, and the implementation of the law will lead to the strengthening of the political process, coexistence and the consolidation of the right of citizenship for all.”

And the former president of the region and leader of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Massoud Barzani, expressed his satisfaction with the approval of the budget and said in a statement that “approving the budget is a positive step in the right direction. We hope that it will be the beginning of strengthening the principles of dialogue and peaceful coexistence and re-establishing the foundations of true partnership between all Iraqi components.”

And he hoped the President of the Kurdistan Regional Government, Masrour Barzani, that the approval of the federal budget pave the way for “recovery from the era of difficult economic challenges.” He said in a statement that “the full application of the law will do justice to the two governments over financial disputes since 2004.”

He added, “I spoke with Al-Kazemi, thanked him, and called for him to fulfill the obligations of the budget law.” Barzani believed that the Federal Budget Law “restored a glimmer of hope about the relationship with the federal government.”

Under the budget law, the region has an obligation to hand over the federal oil company “SOMO” 250,000 barrels from its oil fields and the extra production that the region spends on its local needs, extraction and transportation wages, in exchange for the region’s financial share determined in the federal budget. The region is also obligated to hand over half of its non-oil financial revenues to the federal government.

The budget law also approved the “settlement of (financial) receivables between the federal government and the Kurdistan region for the years from 2004 to 2020 after the two federal financial control bureaus in coordination with the region’s supervisory bureau audited them.

MP for the Badr Parliamentary Bloc Uday Shaalan Abu Al-Joun called, today, Friday, the Presidency of the House of Representatives to set an urgent date for an emergency session in the presence of the Governor of the Central Bank to find out the repercussions of high market prices due to the insistence not to reduce the exchange rate, warning against interrogating the governor The Central Bank, as a prelude to his dismissal, in case it sticks to its positions that are not in the interest of Iraq and its people

Abu Al-Jun said in an interview with Alsumaria News, “The Al-Fateh Alliance in general and the Badr Bloc, especially when it participated in the voting session on the budget, despite its reservations on many of its articles, especially with regard to the exchange rate of the dollar against the dinar, it was a matter of paying the greatest damage in order not to say that we obstruct Passing the budget that the Iraqi people have been waiting for so long

Abu Al-Joun added, “Today, after the budget has passed, this matter does not mean that the exchange rate has become a thing of the past and will not be reduced. Rather, we will work continuously to pressure the executive authority and the Central Bank to reduce it and take immediate measures to address the economic crisis and the rise in prices in the market,” pointing out that “” And within the first steps, the Presidency of the House of Representatives is required to hold an emergency session as soon as possible in the presence of the governor of the Central Bank devoted to discussing the exchange rate and the reasons for the central bank’s insistence not to reduce it.

He stressed that, “In the event that the governor refrains from attending the session or his answer is not convincing, then we will work to pressure to question him, and the national forces within the parliament must stand with the Iraqi people and not with the parties benefiting from the central bank’s confusion, and the oath is preserved and moral and legal responsibility is not shied away.

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”

Hi Everyone,

I bring you much news today.   

GIVE A GIFT TO MNT GOAT – MARCH MADNESS $1 GIFT

I decided to allow everyone to give a Free-will GIFT to Mnt Goat on PayPal if you so desire. Here is the link below.

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:

If these money requests are not cleaned up and deleted, I will start publishing your full names for all to see.

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.

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.

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.

Nader said, in a press statement, that “Parliament Speaker Muhammad al-Halbousi and heads of the blocs in a meeting on reading the articles of the budget bill, and that the differences that existed in the past no longer exist now.”

He pointed out that “in the event that the meeting of Al-Halbousi, the Finance Committee and the ministers ends about reading the budget articles without any problems, then this evening the voting session will be held on the draft budget law, and Kurdish representatives in Baghdad in general will attend the session.”

Nader said, “There is no longer a problem with the Kurdistan region’s share of the budget, and that what is present is more related to the price of the dollar and the dinar in the draft law.”

The Kurdish MP concluded that “he does not believe that there is a problem regarding the quorum for holding the session, because all parties are satisfied and the differences have been greatly reduced.”

The Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Bashir Al-Haddad, announced that the quorum has been completed for the voting session on the federal budget law for the fiscal year 2021.

The head of the Kurdistan Democratic Party’s parliamentary bloc, Vian Sabri, has confirmed that the quorum has been completed for the parliament session devoted to passing the fiscal budget for 2021.

It is hoped The House of Representatives announces shortly after a session to pass the federal budget bill for 2021 or postpone it to another notice.

(Mnt Goat – yes, fresh drinking water and electricity)

The Iraqi ministries of oil and electricity announced on Monday the signing of a principles agreement with the French company Total, which includes the construction of gas processing units with a capacity of 600 medding, seawater project and solar power project (1000) mica watts.

“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.

“The ministry has other gas investment projects in Maysan province, Dhi Qar and Akaz provinces in Anbar and Mansouria in Diyala, which are currently under construction,” Hattab said.

“The agreement signed is a framework agreement for the gas investment process and the development of the Artawi field, which will be followed by the signing of the contract after the approval of the esteemed cabinet, and during the project will build gas processing facilities with an initial capacity of 300 cubic metres for several fields (Artawi, Al-Lahis, Al-Tuba and West Qurna 2) and the second phase will also be followed by 300 maqams a day,” said Hamed Younis, undersecretary of the Ministry of Electricity for Gas Affairs.

“The project will also include the development of the Artawi field to raise the production capacity of the field of crude oil, as well as the agreement to build solar energy and produce energy estimated at 1,000 megawatts,” Yunus said.

“The agreement signed with Total of France includes major projects, the first of which involves the construction of gas processing units in two phases with a capacity of 600 mqm, targeting gas produced in fields (West Qurna/2, Majnoon, Artawi) and other fields,” said Hamza Abdel Baki, general manager of The South Gas Company.

“This will contribute to reducing the amount of burning of associated gas and its investment in the supply of the national gas network by 500 megawatts to generate electricity, as well as raising the capacity of other gas products (liquid gas and condensate), as well as the development of the Artawi field to reach production of 200,000 barrels per day,” he said.

“The agreement also includes the seawater project, which is one of the important projects in the sustainability of production in the oil fields and increased production to ensure the production of 2.5 million barrels as a first stage, which will increase production and export capacity in the future,” he said.

Patrick Boyanier, ceo of Total, said that “HIS COMPANY HAS HELD DISCUSSIONS WITH THE IRAQI SIDE TO IMPLEMENT THE GAS INVESTMENT PROJECT, AND THERE ARE OTHER PROJECTS, INCLUDING INCREASING PRODUCTION FROM AN OIL FIELD AND PRODUCING ELECTRICITY FROM SOLAR ENERGY.”

“Signing the agreement with the Iraqi side is an important step and there will be further steps until the signing of the contract after the cabinet approves,” Bouyane said, adding that his company is “serious about implementing the project.”

 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.
