9-2-2014 Intel/Newshound Guru tman23 That said, it is not a surprise to see Ismail's name as the CBI governor appointee. What this appointment should tell everyone is that the CARETAKER government is in it's last hours...And at this point we don't know if Parliament did or didn't confirm Ismail (but lets assume they did)... Tomorrow Maliki will be in a debriefing as commander and chief... The signs are all positive...HCL, Budget, Article140, New CBI Governor, and within a few days a fully seated GOI... Everyone waited years for these events as the precursor to the RV...It's HERE!! [post 2 of 2]
9-2-2014 Intel/Newshound Guru tman23 Article quote: "the Council of Ministers decided during its regular day to approve the referral of Abdel Basset Turki head of the BSA on retirement for the end of his rule of law." The statement noted that "assigning tasks Ali Mohsen Ismail's central bank governor and the agency." Moshen Ismail was the spoken replacement to Turki when Turki took the position as "temporary". Ismail was the secretary of ministers...he introduced legislation to Parliament, he worked on the government budget...so he knows the providences, the laws, and their needs. All the reforms ran across Ismails desk...He is a perfect fit for the CBI at this stage, IMO. [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]
9-2-2014 Newshound Guru wmawhite In addition to all of the CBI activity, did you know that Abbadi stated as soon as the GOI is seated that he will move forward immediately with the security and ECONOMIC reforms...economic? I wonder. [sure seems to me that all of the signs are pointing to an impending RV!] If you compare the activity of the CBI to previous years there is no comparison and now an incoming PM stating that he will move forward...it does sound promising...this continues to look good for very good reasons.
9-2-2014 Intel/Newshound Guru tman23 ...protesters were able to get by green zone security and then get to the Parliament building and rush the doors...Swat and gold band security was called and members of Parliament were removed from he building...So today was to introduce the ministers to Parliament...and we had a security breach (Maliki.. IMO!!)
9-2-2014 Newshound Guru Tlar Delay Update Post: I just received a phone call that told me that Iraq has been asked to hold the RV for a few days. I can't go into the reasons but it could as much as another week before we see the RV. The good news is that the ball is in Iraq's court and they may decide to not honor the hold. I believe this is a selfish act and so do the Iraqi's. Somebody whom I can't name is playing politics with the RV for personal reasons.
9-2-2014 Intel Guru Mnt Goat So between now and then we wait to hear about the completion of the administration of the oaths of office and the ratification of these candidates by parliament. Then it is official. Then Abadi will make his announcement that we all desire. We know there are many meetings scheduled for this week. There is another Bretton Woods meeting, there is the NATO session to vote on military support for Iraq and there is an Oil Summit also coming up this week. The USA secretary of state John Kerry is heading to Iraq on Thursday too. Does he want to be there for some sort of announcement or is he just stopping in for tea? [post 2 of 2]
9-2-2014 Intel Guru Mnt Goat Today is Tuesday 09/02 and finally we get an announcement of the distribution of the ministries per bloc/party/sec. Congratulations Iraq! But this is still not exactly what we want and need to see as the fully formed and seated government announcement. But I truly believe it is coming this week. The next step is for the prime minister is to present the names of all the new ministers to parliament and thus at this timeframe probably announce them to the world. He will also announce that his government is “fully” formed or “completed” at this time. I believe this will occur with the next 2 days if not even today. This is so very close at hand.

9-2-2014 Newshound Guru Millionday [Please give a synopsis on hcl law?] IT IS THE OIL AND GAS LAW THAT REGULATES THE ENTIRE SALE PRODUCTION AND MOVE OF ALL OIL OUT OF IRAQ AND SOME IT EVEN COVERS IN IRAQ AS WELL --- IT IS A HUGE %, IN THE 90`S AT THE TIME, OF THEIR ENTIRE INCOME UNTIL THEY GET ROLLING IN TRADE --- SO ITS PASSING MEANS THEY ARE GOING BACK TO THE GLOBAL MARKET. WE LONG TIMERS HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THIS HCL FOR SO MANY YEARS -- I THINK WE ARE NUMB. I AM VERY EXCITED. [post 2 of 2]
9-2-2014 Newshound Guru Millionday Article quote: "...the new government gave the green light for the region to export its oil to be regulated by it under the terms of the new law for oil and gas." THE NEW LAW FOR OIL AND GAS ---- THE HCL. WITH THIS LAW THEY ARE ABLE TO ENTER THE GLOBAL MARKET FOR OIL... HUGE. REMEMBER -- THE CITIZENS WILL BE GETTING OIL REVENUES... -- THE HCL IS PASSED. HCL PASSED AND GOV NAMED BUT NOT VOTED OR ANNOUNCED --- ...THEY ARE SAYING THIS WEEK OR NEXT IN ONE REPORT FOR ANNOUNCEMENT AND THIS WEEK IN ANOTHER. [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]
9-2-2014 Newshound Guru wmawhite ...during the announcement of the reopening of the Rafidian Bank in London...they also announced that all Iraqi citizens living outside of Iraq will be paid via the Q-Card...how they going to do that?
9-2-2014 Newshound Guru Aggiedad77 Article: "Miladinov Jubouri: Iraq is undergoing a delicate and needs international support" Speaker of Parliament Jubouri is working with all political blocs attempting to overcome whatever obstacles are in the way of forming a new government and at the same time seeking international support for Iraq...this man seems to be keenly interested in getting a unified government formed so that Iraq can move forward...can he smell the IR perhaps.
9-2-2014 Newshound Guru Kaperoni Article: "Agenda for the meeting (11) Tuesday (2) September 2014" Quote: "The vote on the formation of the standing committees in the House of Representatives." This is huge folks. If they do what they say...this will swear in the new Economic Committee among others...this committee is what is going to push banking and economic reforms/laws through parliament. So the sooner they get sworn in, the sooner they can get to work to implement what has been stalled for months.
Below are the latest guru updates from late last night and yesterday...be sure to check them out before you leave...
9-1-2014 Newshound Guru wmawhite ...besides all of the political stuff which is GREAT...the CBI is doing huge things that point to the IQD being introduced to the world very soon.
9-1-2014 Newshound Guru Chattels THERE HAS BEEN SOME TALK WE HAVE HEARD ABOUT THE LIST OF NAMES BEING RELEASED ON THE 2ND AND THEN THE MINISTERS BEING SWORN IN ON THE 3RD AND THEN THE BUDGET ON THE 4TH OR 5TH, AND I JUST WANT TO ADD THAT WE HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO CONFIRM ANY OF THOSE THINGS. WE HAVE NOT SEEN IT ON AL ARABIYA...IT IS NOT ON THE OFFICIAL AGENDA OF PARLIAMENT AND WE WANT TO GO ON RECORD AS SAYING WHILE IT IS POSSIBLE WE CAN NOT CONFIRM IT. [post 2 of 2]
9-1-2014 Newshound Guru chattels from my arabic speaking friend: TO START OFF I JUST WANT TO SAY THAT THINGS ARE PROGRESSING ALONG NICELY. THERE WERE A FEW BUMPS IN THE ROAD BUT EVERYTHING SEEMS LIKE SMOOTH SAILING NOW. THE BLOCS HAVE SUBMITTED THEIR NAMES AND THINGS ARE BEING SORTED OUT. TOMORROW IS SEPTEMBER 2ND, PARLIAMENT HAS POSTED THEIR AGENDA, THEY WILL BE VOTING ON THE STANDING COMMITTEES. THIS IS NOT PRESENTING THE MINISTERS. THIS WAS ON LAST WEEKS AGENDA BUT GOT PUT OFF... [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]
9-1-2014 Newshound Guru wmawhite Article: "Iraq: new government to allow the export of its oil Erbil"...oil to be regulated by it under the terms of the new law for oil and gas..." This is HUGE...this is the HCL.
9-1-2014 Newshound/Intel Guru Eagle1 [via BulldogFord65] Thoughts on the VND, IMO the VND value will increase significantly, likely more than any have supposed.
9-1-2014 Intel Guru Frank26 IMO, the GOI has already been formed and functioning, the news articles state it’s still being formed, however based on their actions, the GOI is already formed and functioning. Iraqi banks are open in foreign countries – that is powerful. Iraq is witnessing a state of stability and revenue stream is being created by oil sales right before our eyes. Iraq’s new PM is pro-currency reform. IMO, the new GOI will be announced on Sept 9 or 10; the IR [International Rate] could be simultaneous, or soon after – but as always, do not know the date or rate; remember also that Oct 1 is the beginning of the new year. [post 2 of 2]
9-1-2014 Intel Guru Frank26 [via BulldogFord65] In 2010, Maliki did not win the election, but he was appointed PM; in 2014 Maliki did win the election, but he was not appointed PM – the USA is in control. In the past 2 years, intel has been gathered against M [Maliki], and at last he has given up and announced he is stepping down. Although we have troops in Iraq, it’s been kept quiet, and our troops have eradicated ISIS and DASH, they are controlled; all will be kept quiet until the new GOI is announced likely next week. IMO, USA will not do any more until the government is announced. IMO, USA is in control, however surrounding with the coalition and Iraqi forces so they get the credit, will not appear as controlled by USA. [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]
9-1-2014 Intel Guru SteveI All I want to see is these new guys officially seated and the budget and HCL passed. As [Guru] Ray said, their positions will be official September 7th. I am hopeful anytime after that will be a great opportunity for Iraq to move their country forward. The new PM likes to do things by the constitution, so having this happen before the 7th may be pushing it a bit.
9-1-2014 Newshound Guru Tlar I am truly sorry to say there is a potential delay that just came up. The Iraqi's have been asked to hold the RV for a few days. This won't set well with the Iraqi's but they will take tonight to figure out whether they will hold on not. I should get better clarification in the morning. Again I am so sorry to have to tell you this but I just got the word. If there is a delay it won't be long.
9-1-2014 Newshound Guru Millionday SEPT 1ST IRAQ IS TO PUT ON THEIR STOCK MARKET ALL IPOS-- ALSO YESTERDAY -- IRAQ HIT THE GLOBAL MARKET FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A LONG TIME. YESTERDAY THEY SWITCHED TO THE MOST ADVANCED WIRING IN THE WORLD FOR CASH...BANKING. ABADI HAS STATED THAT HE WILL BE ANNOUNCING THE GOV BEFORE THE TIMELINE OF THE 9TH OF SEPT IN THE PRESS. TURKI FROM CBI SAID IN PRESS THAT HE WOULD MOVE FORWARD WITHOUT BUDGET BUT HAS MADE IT CLEAR ABOUT HOW HE FEELS ABOUT THE GOV IMO.
9-1-2014 Newshound Guru Tlar Article quote: "Monday 0.1 September 0.2014 Said a member of the negotiating committee of the National Alliance, MP for the coalition of state law on the Keywords" "that the paper curriculum of government to the next government will be completed today for presentation at an expanded meeting for signature by all the political blocs. "He said in a statement told the National Iraqi News / Nina / " "This The paper prepared by the National Alliance after the integration of the demands of all the political blocs and agreed upon by everyone..." Today the government program is completed and signed by an expanded meeting of the blocks.
9-1-2014 Newshound Guru Aggiedad77 Article: "Parliamentary bloc: Abadi will receive today the names of candidates Ministries Alkanah new government" Today is supposedly the deadline to get your list of names to Abadi for his review and possible selection as part of his GOI ministry...let's see if this deadline actually takes or will we hear later of yet another 2 day deadline...nothing being announced from him as yet...rumors of names of course...but that is all we have at this point.
9-1-2014 Intel/Newshound Guru Poppy3 ...THE RV HAS TO HAPPEN TO FUND THE HCL AND THAT IS FACT. HCL WILL HAPPEN ALMOST SIMULTANEOUSLY WITH THE RV ACCORDING TO THE NEWS SOURCES.
9-1-2014 Newshound/Intel Guru BGG Article Quote: "Jaafari and national forces delegation underline the need for Parliament to witness the performance of a quantum leap enactment of laws"... would be better interpreted "Jaafari and the National Alliance..." saying "We need to get this thing ROLLING"!! Reform Movement: "the announcement of the new ministerial cab within 72 hours..." if Jaafari is saying there will be an announcement in 72 hours - there probably will.
9-1-2014 Newshound Guru Tlar Tomorrow we should see our RV providing that the document is/was signed last night and there is every reason to believe it was. The CBI needs this done and it has been waiting patiently since July 1st to introduce monetary change. The last word is that it is still holding in the high threes. My belief is it will be $3.71 and I have my reasons for this. Next week should be a glorious week for both us and the Iraqi's. I realize there are many that still don't understand what's going on or how they can do this. I also realize that if I miss the date by even one day, there are those that will call me a kook. It makes no difference to me. I want everyone to know how close this is to being finished. [post 3 of 3]
9-1-2014 Newshound Guru Tlar This will be seen by the CBI as a settled position as far as the government goes. The government may or may not take a few more days to form but it is my belief that it will make no difference to the plan. Both the Sunni and Kurd's have presented their ministers for revue and that revue has already rejected two unqualified applicants. So there is a process at work here to get the most qualified experienced technocrats that they can to run these ministries unlike the last government where you could purchase a ministry if you offered the most money. The process and announcement of the government should be early this week as the Iraqi's are acting at light speed for them. [post 2 of 3....stay tuned]
9-1-2014 Newshound Guru Tlar The agreement is signed as I write this. The Iraqi's have spent this last week meeting. All sects were involved including the Shia, Sunni, Kurds and Turkman. The purpose which has been the hold up in the process, is to remove the element of "trust" between the sects and put forth a document in writing which identified both the big problems and their solutions. Laws that have been dormant for years like the HCL and Article 104 were moved to the fore front along with their solutions. They were agreed upon to be signed, run in front of parliament and registered with the Iraqi courts and the UN. This document is all important to the process to give everyone that warm fuzzy to vote this new government in. Many of these things could not be done before the government is voted in because they require the new COM to be seated and the Sunni's and the Kurd's, having been burnt by the previous Shia government lead by Maliki, were gun shy to vote until they got assurances that the new government was in tune with their concerns and solutions. Both the Kurd's and the Sunni presented papers of demands and the negotiations commenced. As of this morning sometime we should see that all parties have signed, all agreements are done. [post 1 of 3....stay tuned]
9-1-2014 Newshound Gurus Bondlady & tlm724 "Iraq: new government to allow the export of its oil Erbil" *hallelujah*...last week we discussed that the only remaining points on the HCL were to figure out where the proceeds will be deposited and how much oil was excepted from the kurds. "that the new government gave the green light for the region to export its oil to be regulated by it under the terms of the new law for oil and gas" ...imo HCL is being finalized. pass those laws we needed to see and bam...still a bit to go but those things are huge...awesome news!
9-1-2014 Intel Guru Frank26 will we see an IR [International Rate] this week...IMO...No. Nor will You see a full GOI announced this week. There are far more important things to do and that they ARE DOING RIGHT NOW. This not a race to an IR...It is the securing of it...NOW.
9-1-2014 Intel Guru Mnt Goat This is how I am hearing they plan to roll out the new government. September 3, the remaining ministers will be sworn in. September 4, the official list of ministers will be released to the media and the people. They will announce that the government is “officially” completed. The ministers will officially start their jobs September 9 as Jubouri has stated the next official session of parliament is planned to begin on 9/9. There is a stack of bills needing to be passed and implemented such as HCL and Article 140. Parliament will not waist any time. On September 9 a bucket of laws is supposed to be brought before Parliament. Following these laws will be the budget law. Then when can we expect the RV? ...I have been saying all along we wait for a formal (global) announcement to the public that the Iraq government is now fully formed. I do whole heartedly believe that the RV rollout will be completed just prior to or just after this announcement. [post 2 of 2]
9-1-2014 Intel Guru Mnt Goat My news today is direct from my sources in Iraq as of Sunday 8/31. I come to you today to give you a recent update on the election process... What is left is a single undecided ministry, Ministry of Oil, in which may go to the Kurdistan Alliance. This will probably be resolved by early this week. Last week they swore in all ministers already chosen and began to officially seat them...about 12 of the ministers were officially seated and their names listed in the gazette making it official. This was not the announcement of the fully formed government we have been waiting for. They plan to swear in the last 5 ministers and...seat them and hopefully they can do all this by 9/4 or 9/9 (at the latest), when they are targeting the “formal announcement”. The parliament Speaker, Saleem al-Jobouri...stated that there are no obstacles to hinder the formation of the next government within the constitutional time limit. I personally do not think it will go until 9/9. [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]
9-1-2014 Newshound Guru BlueyesinLevis Quote: "The collapse of negotiations was caused by some members of the NA who were captive to the last stage" ...probably because they are dirty and corrupt as their old Boss...Uncle Nouri. But those problems seem to have been overcome. The new leadership group...must be...will be comprised of men who qualify according to Abadi's standards...and who will sign the National Paper...so that there will be no holdups or surprises...Abadi has stated clearly that reforms... politcal, economic, and security...will begin on DAY 1. It is gonna be one heck of a week.
9-1-2014 Newshound Guru Adam Montana [Do you think we are getting close?] There's at least a couple weeks left while the GOI is set, and after that... fingers crossed it could be soon.
9-1-2014 Newshound Guru Millionday & BGG THIS IS A HUGE HUGE MEETING -- IT IS FOR THE RELEASE OF THE REALITY OF IRAQ`S ECONOMY AND THEY ARE SAYING IT IS THIS PHASE SO OF COURSE WE HAVE TO WATCH THE ACTION BUT WITH ALL ELSE WE HAVE SEEN ---- HUGE CHANGE HAS OCCURRED. THEY ARE SAYING THE CHANGES IN THE SPENDING FIGURES ARE URGENT TO BE CHANGED AND HAD NOT BEEN DONE IN THE PREVIOUS YEARS BECAUSE THE REFORMS WERE NOT DONE. [NOW THEY CAN MAKE THE MONETARY CHANGE WE ARE LOOKING FOR.] I AGREE. [post 2 of 2]
9-1-2014 Newshound Guru Millionday & BGG this "seminar (aka - meeting)" took place on Skype - whatever this meeting was really about was obviously so urgent they couldn't wait to meet in person. They had to meet on Skype. THEY HAD THEIR OFFICIALS PRESENT IT APPEARS AND OTHERS ON SKYPE. "...to develop the banking reality in Iraq." sounds very interesting... IMHO. ECONOMIC REALITY IS WHAT WE ARE WAITING FOR AND THIS IS A HUGE MEETING. THEY ARE SAYING THE MARKET HAS TO OPEN FOR IRAQ -- THEY NO LONGER CAN STAY CONTAINED. This type of news coupled with the recent variance in the currency auctions may be HUGE... [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]
