Sunday News Summaries and Commentaries


Sunday morning and I overslept so am playing catch up to the news this morning….my fingers must fly to capture all the news that has been posted thus far…..wish me the best and I will do my best to sort thru things in a logical manner…..we do see the CBI talking…..Kuwait talking…..Abadi urging fugitives created by the old government to return to Iraq….and the retaking of Mosul on the cusp of days to come.

Exceeded the candor line .. “Baghdad news” dialogue Governor of the Central Bank:

WOW what an extended interview with the governor of the CBI….many areas were covered with excellent candor on his part….some keys that were discussed included the draft money-laundering law…..the stability found within the dinar-dollar exchange rate…..
….

The fact that reserves within the CBI remain healthy when compared to other central banks around the world….the dinar itself remains strong….even in light of oil prices dropping…..

The CBI will administer bonds being issued to the government….helping to administer a bond market within Iraq and the ISX….discussion was included on the benefit to Iraq and it’s people with the compulsory savings program based on income levels….definite answer that states the CBI operates separate from the government without pressure from politicians or the media to go in directions that would be considered illegal….with regard to a currency reset the project remains in place….

They continue to look to ways to introduce the newly printed currency with added safety features to prevent counterfeiting while the old currency remains in place at the same time….what an incredible amount of information he shared at this point…..very willingly.

Key economic events in Iraq through 2014

An interesting article of a year in review for Iraq….from January through December….two differing governments…..the falling prices of oil world-wide……there were a number of things that have aided Iraq economically during the year, some of which I think has hindered them too…..I believe the “positive” aspect of things is simply in the eyes of the beholder….depending on who supplied the facts at the time of the story……..in my opinion the good that came post September far outweighs any good that might be claimed prior to September.

Abadi call for the establishment of a joint bank with Turkey

It is PM Abadi’s desire in his attempts to continue strengthening economic efforts between Iraq and Turkey to work towards the opening of a joint bank between in the two in Iraq….already we are seeing memorandums associated with water resources, electricity, and oil.

Parliamentary Security: The coming days will witness the liberation of Mosul Aldoaash

Watch for significant troop movement and efforts to liberate Mosul….this will stem from multiple axis including the Kurdistan as well as air support supplied by international coalition forces….there has been an overwhelming support for this retaking of the northern city by large numbers of volunteers…some of which have been absorbed into the militias but there still remain many young warriors who wish to help in this fight….a very different cry from when the terrorists first walked into town back in June.

Families of jihadists evacuate Mosul as Baghdad prepares for major offensive

IMO…..this is not a great way to eradicate the terrorists in the area….giving them over a month’s forewarning of an impending attack….the little cockroaches will simply move off under the cloak of darkness to other areas and prepare to inflict their pain once again…..who is in charge of this counterproductive media blitz….someone from the US?…..good grief….meanwhile Kurd President Barzani continues to study the input that the Peshmerga may have in this upcoming effort.

Fayad: must approve oil and gas law to address the financial crisis

It is believed that by approving the oil and gas law the current economic crisis within Iraq will be addressed….this would come supposedly in the equal distribution of wealth that stems from the export of oil….at the same time ensuring justice for Iraqi citizens through a special fund created on their behalf…..the differences seen in the past between Baghdad and the Kurds may be melting away and thus leading to the real possible distinction for approval of the law that has been shanghaied for a number of years because of prior disputes…..the Speaker of Parliament is preparing the way to bring this law to the forefront of importance for Parliament upon their return from recess.

An invitation to reconsider issuing a new edition of the Currency

I’m going to call attention to this article solely because the person being interviewed mentions 2016 as the year to delete the zeros…..but once again my focus……this person has an opinion and is expressing that….does that by itself make this something to believe in…..IMO….NO…the CBI governor has spoken out that they are poised to carry forth with this project….put much more trust in his words than the mere opinion of an economist….

Now Dr. Saleh is also quoted here as saying that the projects associated with the recent printing of new currency is a “strategic commodity”….even tho costs associated with it may be high….again….we also are hearing from members of the government who do not control the actions of the CBI….but they can sure offer their opinions as to what they see should be happening…..don’t get caught up in these attempts to grandstand.

Abadi Tries to Bring Former Iraqi VP Hashimi Back from Turkey

PM Abadi is certainly making every effort to right many wrongs that can be blamed on the old government within Iraq….his latest effort includes trying to entice former Iraqi VP Hashimi to come out of hiding within Turkey and to even assume some of his efforts within the political process…..former PM Maliki accused him of murder and saw him sentenced to death in 2012….Abadi is having the court of today review those charges to determine if they were valid or trumped up as so many other charges were at Maliki’s request.

China to Open Consulate in Erbil

China is expressing an interest in solidarity with the Kurds and is stepping up to open a consulate office in Erbil in the near future.

Abadi looking dues Basra and expand the powers of its board

I find it interesting and encouraging to see PM Abadi not only present at this meeting but actually chairing the meeting….I think he is going an extra mile to show the provinces how he believes they should be more in charge of what they in fact control within their respective areas….as he continues to broaden the responsibilities within the provinces….something he predecessor was deathly afraid of doing and was adamantly against.

A source in the prime minister: Shabibi will return to his central bank governor

According to a source within the office of PM Abadi….Dr. Shabibi will be asked to return to his role as CBI governor…..oh how fate has a way of working things to one’s benefit….this comes after the Dec 22nd acquittal of Shabs from charges filed by the previous government.


Abadi Office: Iraq Reconstruction Fund turned into an international character

Iraq Reconstructive Fund…..being impacted in a big way from the international arena….as efforts are implemented to undo damage associated with recent terrorism activities since last June….this includes France who had stayed at arms length in the past to Kuwait…once an enemy of the state….these efforts are working in a proactive way to rebuild physically as well as aiding displaced citizens and families to return to their former lifestyles….I believe this rebirth of international efforts of support for Iraq and it’s people will also aid in the unifying process that is ongoing for them.

Suspicion sneak into Shabibi file .. the judge who sentenced Iberih charges

Long article that basically points to an interesting twist of things within the Iraqi judiciary….the same judge who sentenced Shabs is the same judge who acquitted him of any wrong doing just last Monday….so which side of the fence does he really sit on….or was he truly that coerced by Maliki to convict an innocent group of people….how brutal.

Stapes: the necessity of activating the customs tariff away from the basic needs of citizens

A National Alliance MP is calling for the activation of the customs tariff for Iraq….something they are the only country not doing at this time…..this is a call for a electronic system that would not be bothered by prior issues with corruption….to also try to alleviate higher costs being passed along to limited income Iraqi’s it is being recommended that taxes not be imposed on essential commodities like food, medicines and other essential items.

Well that is enough for the time being…..some interesting topics today no doubt….enjoy.

And, where is article 38?

http://www.bondladyscorner.com/t108533-the-general-budget-of-the-federal-republic-of-iraq-for-fiscal-year-2015

Tlm724:  Hey gdoodle thanks for posting this, I read it while I had my coffee this morning. I just wanted to take a moment to clarify something for you all. Where it shows this “Article – 41. 
~~~

This law shall be published in the Official Gazette and implemented with effect from 1 / January / 2015″ simply means that no matter WHEN the budget is passed whether it’s January or even February

 and after it has been in the gazzette then it becomes effective Jan 1st retroactively applied to that date (Jan 1st) as all budgets are .

 Just wanted to be clear on that Wink And as far as article 38 missing well that could be due to the translation or a typo. Again thanks for posting it.

starlight wrote:  I read a post today on the Internet supposedly put out by Bondlady on October 17, 2012 saying Shabibi is corrupt, etc.  The title is:

There may be some truth to shabibi being involved

So how do you stand now with all the detail you reported about the corruption of Shabibi now?  I am confused.  I still think Shabibi is not the guilty party.  Thanks, starlight

Tlm724:  Starlight thank you for your question. I will do my best to answer it for you as BondLady has commitments today. Let me quote Bondlady’s Chat from Wed Oct 17, 2012 1:56 pm

[BondLady] then the cia will release little tid bits of info

[BondLady] and provide proof

[BondLady] to them

[BondLady] whatever it is

[BondLady] whether it was hashemi and his hit squads

[BondLady] to corruption and bribes

[BondLady] so when things over there get lop sided

[BondLady] and they need to level the playing field

[BondLady] they release info to the ones needing help

[BondLady] the most

[BondLady] so what if

[BondLady] what if

[BondLady] they did the same thing

[BondLady] on shabibi

[BondLady] whether it’s true or not

[BondLady] whether it was him or not

[BondLady] he is the cbi gov

[carpentersr] maybe that is why everyone there is holed up at the moment…

[BondLady] the buck stops there

[BondLady] whether it was someone who worked at the cbi

[BondLady] doesn’t matter

[BondLady] he is in charge

[BondLady] whether he did it or not

[BondLady] the buck stops there

http://www.bondladyscorner.com/t55349-bondlady-chat-follow-up-on-cbi-and-dr-shabibi-10-17-2012

Also she said this on Oct 19, 2012 9:46 am as a follow up: 

“ITS A DIFFICULT TIME FOR US ALL IN THIS INVESTMENT, AS SO MANY THINGS HAVE HAPPENED AND CHANGED THRU OUT THE YEARS, I ASK U ALL TO REMAIN STRONG THRU THIS SHABIBI ISSUE,

I CANT SEE THAT EVERY THING WE THOT ABOUT THE MAN THRU OUT ALL THESE YEARS COULD BE FALSE, BUT WE HAVE TO LET THIS ISSUE PLAY OUT AS IVE SAID MANY TIMES”

http://www.bondladyscorner.com/t55552-bondlady-addresses-another-sites-coments-per-the-shabibi-news-10-19-12

end quotes

Tlm724:  I think it is safe to say that BondLady has always based her opinion on facts and if you can take the time to read back over those posts in full you will see that she spent countless hours verifing everything she could at the time.

 Dr. Shabibi has been cleared of all charges against him and as we have stated will probably be re-instated as the governor of CBI any time now. As to your question ”  So how do you stand now with all the detail you reported about the corruption of Shabibi now?”

I don’t think there is one person that was in power in Iraq that didn’t have their hand in the cookie jar, no one was above reproach.

Remember there was no electronic accounting except for the CBI itself, it was a free for all for theft and corruption. They would steal all they could then there would be a fire if they suspected an arrest warrant was coming. They would burn the evidence which was probably written on pieces of paper etc..

Was Dr. Shabibi quilty of any malpractice ? We can’t know the answer to that but I was reminded by BondLady that there was a question about the 13 dinar profit made off each dollar sold in the daily auctions and that the accounting was off. Was that Shabibi ? Again no way to tell.

His sins may have been more innocent than that. If you recall each year as the budget was being prepared all the GOI guys would look to the reserves at the CBI saying “hey we can just use that money” while drool was running down their faces. Shabibi would always say NO that money cannot be used !

Maliki wanted to take money from the CBI to build up the infrastructure for the Port of Faw and was turned down repeated by Shabibi. But old Shab’s held tight to his convictions and said we are independent ! Maybe just maybe that is what got Shabibi in trouble but who knows.

The whole country of Iraq is different now and has been since Sept. There is accountablity and oversight and corruption is being controlled . Whole new set of circumstances.

 I am encouraged to see Shabs back as he orchestrated the currency reform. That said, I hope I have answered your question and we will watch and learn together what this new and old set of players will do for our investment.

I just had an afterthought , Shabibi is the one who continually told the gov of Iraq to develop the private sector and increase industry to get away from dependancy on oil…

 he told them how to do this and had they taken action at the time this drop in oil prices would not have effected them as badly but no they rode in the first class car of the train all these years and now that ride is over. They gotta do this …. just sayin


2 Re: BLC Answers Members Questions 12/27/2014 Yesterday at 11:23 pm

Tobyboy:   Timmy I remember when BL had the chat you posted above. I had felt from the beginning when Maliki tried to get Shabibi arrested that Maliki was no good and believed from day one that he was innocent of those charges. 

From that point 2012 believed that Maliki was corrupt and boy was I correct looking at all the corruption been coming out againbst Maliki. Also at that time Shabibi tried to tell MAliki of corution of people in BAnking that Maliki had put in of course Maliki would not listen to Shabibi.

 I am really happy that Shabibi has dismissal of charges and will will see a lot of good come about once he gets back in CBI. My point is Bondlady has also been on target with our investment. I have had my aluminum thinking cap on. BL knows what I mean Hello Bondlady  Very Happy

tlm724   FOLLOW UP: 22/12/2014 the Integrity Committee in the House of Representatives of the previous session that sack Shabibi been through it, that the competent court of inquiry to consider the fairness issues negated the charges to the Governor of the Central Bank of the article Shabibi,

 describing him out of office, “targeted personally” for failing to grant money to Prime Minister Nuri Maliki and his son Ahmed        http://www.dananernews.com/News_Details.php?ID=5406

THEY WILL ISSUE A RATE SO THE GOI CAN TAKE THEIR NEW WHEEL FOR A DRIVE. 

sczin11   [THE BUDGET IS THE CAR AND THE CBI HAS THE KEY.]  AND WHO IN THE CBI HOLDS THE KEY TO START THE ENGINE? IMHO, DR.N SHABIBI HOLDS THE KEY!

 I STILL SAY RATE BEFORE BUDGET…DR SHABIBI WILL PULL THE CAR OUT OF DRIVEWAY!  THEY CAN HAVE WORTHLESS BUDGETS…WHAT WE WANT IS A FULLY VALUED BUDGET.

mcdan :The value of 1000 dinar note now at 1166 to 1 equals to .86 cents

Published on Dec 27, 2014

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the ‘Give Us Back Our Gold’ movement across Europe as governments seek to have their gold held domestically as fear spreads about the integrity of our fiat and debt world.

Max describes the de-fiatisation of the world as the American empire makes way for the emerging power of China.

THEY ARE WORKING ON THE BUDGET NOW. THIS IS GREAT NEWS. ADJOURN THE MEETING UNTIL THE 7TH? I DON’T BELIEVE IT. AS WE SEE THERE — A SPECIAL MEETING WAS CALLED FOR THE BUDGET. THIS IS COMMON TO HAVE MANY REPORTS CONTRADICT EACH OTHER — IT IS EXPECTED.

THEY HAVE STATED THAT THE BUDGET DOES NOT HAVE THE 3 ZEROS IN IT — THAT IS WHY THERE IS A DEBATE BUT WILL IT ALL BE AT THE SAME TIME?

Mnt Goat Late Friday Night Update – “6 days Till Dinar Christmas”

(Thank you George for emailing this to Dinar Recaps.)

UU9494 – “6 days Till Dinar Christmas”  by Mnt Goat

Hi Everyone,

Hope everyone has a great Christmas ! Meine Kinder got lots of presents from Saint Nicholas but not exactly the ones they had asked him for. This was due to lack of funding on the part of Saint Nicholas this year …lol….…lol…

We also have a tradition in my alpine village. It is with Krampus. This is a factious character who punishes children during the Christmas season who had misbehaved, in contrast with Saint Nicholas, who rewards well-behaved ones with gifts. The Kinder were glad Krampus did not have to visit our home……lol….

Today I wanted to give everyone a very brief news letter. I will get right to the point once again. I hope everyone also read my last news letters dated 12/23 (LINK) since this is a continuation of this ongoing saga of getting this 2015 budget bill passed thus showing us the way to the RV event.

Today’s News
The news coming from the CBI is all very good. The GOI is still targeting the end of the year for full implementation of the 2015 budget. Remember the banks of Iraq get funded with the budget money for the projects once Parliament passes the bill and the President ratifies it. By the way Dr. Shabibi agreed to return and once again head up the CBI. The timing could not be any better….

Remember also the corruption in the past years where money was stolen by the ministers instigated by the incumbent prime minister? The banks too were in on these scandals once the funds were released to them from the CBI. They do not want a repeat of all this mess and so they are making sure measures are in place to prevent it. I am telling you this because Abadi wants full transparency with all funds and it took time to get it all cleaned up.

Do we have to wait till Jan 1st for the announcement of the new rate? I will give you my opinion later.

For now let’s briefly review what just happened this week for those that are new to my news letters.

>On Tuesday the Iraqi Cabinet of Ministers approved the draft budget bill for fiscal 2015 and finally released it from the Cabinet of Ministers to Parliament;

>At this time an emergency session of Parliament was aligned for Thursday 12/25 so we knew something was up….lol……;

>Then on 12/25, after two days of review by Parliament, on Christmas day, it was announced that the first reading of the bill was completed;  Now if I am not mistaken this was actually the second reading since Parliament already read the bill a month ago?  Remember? They rejected it and sent it back to the GOI for revisions for market changes in the price of oil. There were also some deficit issues to resolve. I keep saying to everyone that you can’t forget the past and what they do. Everything is connected together. If you forget the past you go down these dead-end roads leading to nowhere. This is what causes much of the anxiety and confusion.

>So today, Friday 12/26, all of a sudden to our wondering eyes should appear in the Iraq news eight tiny reindeers (actually it was announced that the bill was voted on and passed). Just kidding…

How could this be? When was the second reading most say had to happen?  Silly people!  This process was actually the reading that took place earlier this week. All the readings are now done. The bill is passed through the Parliament and now sits on the Presidents desk.
They used the “guillotine“  process to push the process along. Many articles told us that it would take a couple weeks to complete the process but out popped more news today. Oh what a surprise !

We still await for the official publication in the Gazette.

If all this news this wee was not remarkable enough, once again it was topped with more confirmation later in the day today when  the contents of the budget bill was released to the public for the first time. It was predicated by a statement from Dr Fouad Masoum, the President of Iraq, as follows “This law shall be published in the Official Gazette and implemented as from 1 January 2015”.

Can it get any better than this?

As soon as I heard this news I was on the phone to the USA to my UST contact. I wanted to know about the planned rollout and if they still intended to exchange the dinarland holders prior to January 1st. I was not given a straight answer and so I am assuming the answer was No!  This usually happens when they do not want to let you know the next step. So I backed off. We will know very shortly anyhow. Things are happening so fast now the waiting is a matter of days not weeks or months like in prior news.

My guess is that since we are so close to Jan 1st anyhow, they will probably wait anyhow to that time and not do anymore exchanges in the USA until the rate is announced here in the USA

Now what can we expect going forward?

News from the President Masoum’s office that the budget bill has been ratified. Maybe a photo shot for the news media.

We can also now expect the CBI in the next 4-6 days to post the new rate on the CBI web site. It my understanding that the Kurdistan region has now already announced the revaluation to their citizens and the rest of Iraq is due very soon too to get the announcement.

I am also hearing that the National Reconciliation Conference is to be held tomorrow, Saturday 12/27 and Abadi is supposed to address the attendees and citizens of Iraq. I have previously told you about the contents or agenda for his speech. This could very well be what we have been waiting for. Let’s see what happens tomorrow.

SUMMARY

As I have said previously I thought this entire budget bill process was put in warp drive and I was correct. There is really not too much for Parliament to do with the budget bill since as long as the ministers all agree on it prior to them getting it, this is what matters the most. Each of the ministries will have to implement it and use the funding for their special projects and the running of the government. To me, this year, having Parliament review and vote on the 2015 budget, was a mere formality. This is how they were able to push it through the house so quickly.

Then when can we expect the RV?

There are only 6 days remaining till Jan 1st 2015 and all indications are now we are on track to see the CBI announce the RV for the rest of Iraq very soon.  Personally I do not see the CBI waiting till the end of December to make the announcement. I really believe it could happen anytime in the next 72-96 hours.

Will the USA stop it once Iraq announces it? I do not see how they could or that this is their plan.

Christmas is kinda nice this year. You see we will all have a second round of presents and gifts very soon. Happy forthcoming D$nar Christmas!

Peace and Luv To Ya All,

It was this deficit through a series of measures which included the national savings for state employees and assets retained and the Special Drawing Rights of the IMF cover International and issuing foreign bonds and the issuance of public debt bonds by the legal reserve banks and loans and couriers treasury of Trade Bank of Iraq and the issuance of couriers safe from government banks.

[tlm724] again not sure why the MOF posted this today however take a look at this : the Special Drawing Rights of the IMF cover International and issuing foreign bonds and the issuance of public debt bonds by the legal reserve banks and loans and couriers treasury of Trade Bank of Iraq and the issuance of couriers safe from government banks

[campdav] VERY SPECIFIC AND DIRECT

[tlm724] bonds coming right up and if they are long term then IMO no way will they be issued at 1166

[campdav] Impossible. No one would buy those IMO at 1166

[tlm724] as I always say if they issue at 1166 and those bonds mature say at $1 per it would cripple Iraq !

[campdav] thats right

[tlm724] very interesting times for sure   

[campdav] no net gain

[tlm724] huge lose campy

[campdav] huge

[tlm724] defeats the purpose ! that’s just my thoughts anywho 

[campdav] totally

[therealbubbie] they never mention if there long term !! why ?

[campdav] Reflecting on old with Shredd to sell that debt they would need to come off that 1166as I recall

[tlm724] therealbubbie campdav  ‘Foreign Bond’ A bond that is issued in a domestic market by a foreign entity, in the domestic market’s currency.

[therealbubbie] even if there short term bond .. who would buy them at 1166 !!

[campdav] tlm724 Excellent

[tlm724] in the domestic market’s currency

[therealbubbie] in the domestic market’s currency.

[campdav] Great stuff

[therealbubbie] and when are these bonds to be issued !!

[tlm724] Zebari doesn’t say specifically bubbies but if they intend for this move to offset the deficit in the budget then they best get moving and quick   

[campdav] therealbubbie trillion dollar question

[tlm724] right campy

[campdav] We always knew the date the bonds went on the market we would see the rate

[campdav] Great stuff

[tlm724] yeppers campy you are right there

[therealbubbie] tlm724 iraq passes out new coins today …. that would be better stuff!            

[tlm724] therealbubbie *hallelujah* *kickA*    

[campdav] Same result Wink 

[campdav] IR

BondLady’s Chat Hope for a Prosperous New Year 12/26/2014

[cat] BondLady could you please give us an update as to where you think we are in this investment ?

[BondLady] I think if we can see the budget gazzetted and activated say in a month and a half then the economic laws being passed and activated also…and it looks like thats a good possibility, then we should also see a montetary change imo within the 1st half of 2015

  [tlm724] *hallelujah* 

[COSMO] Amen

[BondLady] we hope

[tlm724] we pray 

[BondLady] it could happen in the 1st quarter too

[tlm724] I still like the first quarter    

[BondLady] but I feel like we have a real shot to see something change within the CBI in the 1st quarter but with them it makes me want to stretch it on into the 1st half of the year

   [BondLady] I don’t do dates and rates but that’s the best scenario I can come up with for the new year, cat hope that helps. We just have to wait and see as always

[cat] BondLady sounds good to me thanks

Wednesday News Summaries by Aggiedad77 at KTFA

aggiedad77 » December 24th, 2014, 12:17 pm 

Wednesday News Summaries and Commentaries

Well I had a bunch of news typed up for this morning and then my computer chose to crash before I was ready to post it….so now will start to recreate it….maybe a shortened version this time around to keep up.

National Conference expanded in Baghdad next Saturday and positive indicators for a comprehensive agreement

The meeting of the minds come Saturday….in Baghdad….political entities and tribes coming together to work on a common denominator…terrorism….as well as greater unity across Iraq
…..

Shamkhani: the departure of al-Maliki has strengthened our position and Iraq is the closest in the reign of al-Abadi

If they had just listened to me I could have assured them that getting Maliki out and Abadi in would have been a great thing….yes it is proving to be so…..and also for the Iranians it would seem….or at least in their minds….they seek to improve diplomatic relations with the US as well….get real….and they want the world to know their security efforts with Iraq and Syria have helped to push ISIS out of the picture….oh Lord it is hard to be humble.

Zebari: $ 103 billion value of next year’s budget

So the budget stands at 123 trillion dinars and the deficit sits at 23 trillion dinars…..as we await Parliament’s meeting on Thursday to bless the budget…..let us pray and hope all goes smoothly.

The government pays the budget to Parliament and cut legislative leave to read Thursday

So COM approved the budget for 123 trillion dinar with oil at $60 per barrel…..we shall see if Parliament can pull everyone together in time for a meeting tomorrow on the budget….I personally wouldn’t be surprised to see this postponed until Saturday…..can they get the final push accomplished before the end of the year…..PM Abadi sure wants them to….time will tell.

Advisor to the Prime Minister: Dollar rises in the market is a bubble forming

Dr. Saleh sees a pricing bubble forming in the exchange of currency but says also that the CBI reserves are more than covering the high dollar price in the market…insisting what they are seeing is a temporary pricing bubble being affected by some market speculators.

Iraq’s oil exports approaching record highs Iraq’s oil exports approaching record highs

At levels approaching 2.78 million barrels of oil per day Iraq’s export of oil is quickly approaching the record levels set in February of this year of 2.8 million barrels….this includes 180,000 barrels per day now flowing from Kirkuk….however, this article reports that Kirkuk oil has again stopped due to a bomb exploding on the pipeline from Kirkuk to Ceyhan, Turkey….if they could only figure out how to jumper the Kirkuk oil into the Kurd pipeline to Ceyhan, it should flow without interruption.

Communications discussing with representatives of Zain Iraq and Voiz companies and US (AT & T) to act as a true partner in future projects

Ministry of Communications is seeking a cooperative effort between Zain the Iraqi mobile phone group and US ATT to work with the ministry on future telecommunications projects for Iraq.

Mr. Barzani received the Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Region, the evening Tuesday, December 23, 2014, Mr. “Paulo Jantelaun” Italian Foreign Minister and his accompanying delegation.

Kurd President Barzani sat down with the Italian Foreign Minister and talked about security and weapons needs for the Kurds….also talked about continued aid and support in the fight by the Peshmerga against terrorists…they even talked aircraft to assist in the battle against terrorists….interesting.

Araji: diplomatic Abadi opened up new economic horizons

PM Abadi continues to work on good things that help support Iraq…..deferring payment to Kuwait….recent meetings with Jordan to open up a new pipeline between the two countries.

Ihsanoglu: 7 meetings to approve the federal budget

This individual speaks of potentially 7 meetings in Parliament to approve the budget….I’m not sure where he gets his information or if it is merely his opinion….at this point I do not put much stock in his words….let us see what continues to develop.

Kurdistan announce the presence of all the Kurds of Representatives tomorrow allocated budget session

Kurds plan on being in full attendance at tomorrow’s budget meeting in Parliament…..the “first reading”……some have said this is but an amendment and may not require the formal process through Parliament….but my opinion differs….I am thinking they will need to do the readings as prescribed by law…..but I also think they can get this done before the end of the year.

Abadi defends pact with Erbil as cabinet approves budget

PM Abadi defends the deal he has made with the Kurds, stating that the effort strengthens things for the Kurds, for Baghdad and for all of Iraq…..he has taken many good steps in his role as PM and has been instrumental in unifying Iraq where unity was not seen as possible with the former government.

Kurdish lawmaker: No differences between the political blocs on the budget approval

The Kurds are saying there will be no political differences regarding the budget…..if this proves to be the case that would be maybe the best news for all of Iraq….a smooth budgetary process through Parliament.

Well must bring things to a stop here for now…..family matters come first….will try to get back later with more.

The true scope of this investment

Kaperoni:   I think it is important that we all realize the true scope of this investment and the responsibilities of the CBI. That is why I often post multiple views and opinions (to the dismay of others). The truth is, stability is important and until they can prove to the IMF they can sustain that, we are in for a wait. But again, we have no control, no impact and all we can do is watch and wait. Iraq still has so much to do. Laws, laws and more laws, and they need to end a war, and they need to create stability in monetary policy. No short cuts here.

moneytalks1 :  It might go to 90 cents today.. which would be great..but I don’t think we will see the rate ahead of the 90 cents.AS you know, the U.s dollar is almost 90 cents today.  but i sure hope the rate shows up before or by jan.1, 15.

Frank26: 
I plan to go deeper on this subject tonight but for now:

We did NOT expect to see the USD hit 90 UNTIL after the RI/RV. IOO …….. It follows the budget but also KNOWS it’s place with the IQD. BUT …… IOO (In Our Opinion)  ……. Some advancements with the 2015 budget were made last night that has caused the USD to touch .90 . This is intriguing indeed.

Hmmm…….. This Abadi is good and impressive.
