Forex – GBP/USD hits more than 1

Investing.com –

Investing.com – The pound dropped to more than one-month lows against the U.S. dollar on Tuesday, as the greenback remained supported after the release of strong U.S. consumer confidence data and ahead the Federal Reserve’s monthly policy statement.

GBP/USD hit 1.6936 during U.S. morning trade, the pair’s lowest since June 18; the pair subsequently consolidated at 1.6938, sliding 0.27%.

Cable was likely to find support at 1.6866, the low of May 6 and resistance at 1.7001, Monday’s high.

The Conference Board said its index of consumer confidence rose to a seven-year high of 90.9 this month from a reading of 86.4 in June, whose figure was revised up from a previously reported 85.2. Analysts expected the index to decline to 85.3 in July.

Demand for the dollar also remained supported ahead of preliminary data on U.S. second-quarter growth and the Federal Reserve’s latest rate statement, both due on Wednesday. Investors were also awaiting the July employment report on Friday.

Earlier this month Fed Chair Janet Yellen said that rates could rise sooner if the recovery in the labor market continued.

In the U.K., official data showed that net lending to individuals rose by 2.5 billion last month, below expectations for an increase of 2.6 billion. Net lending to individuals in May was revised up to a 3.0 billion increase from a previously estimated 2.7 billion gain.

Sterling was lower against the euro, with EUR/GBP adding 0.08% to 0.7918.

The single currency remained under pressure amid concerns over the divergence in monetary policy between the European Central Bank and its major peers.

The euro zone was to release what would be closely watched data on consumer prices on Thursday, amid concerns over persistently low levels of inflation in the currency bloc.

Tlar & Friends Discuss Forged Document & New Battle Plan

    RDiddy     I posted this question in another thread – can one of you big-brains answer it please: Is the vote for PM won by a simple majority? I believe that would require 90 votes for anyone-but-Maliki. That’s just 7 more than the coalition, isn’t it?

 Tlar:    In the na  (National Alliance) they only need one half plus one of 178.  If not everybody shows then it is stll one half plus 1. 

In parliament they don’t need any until they vote for the PM nominees COM. 

If the parliament votes yes, one half present plus one it is over. 

Once the NA nominates the PM it is over because all coalition  ministers will accept  his COM. 

I believe he will submit his list on the same or next day.  He has had two months to figure who he wants and I am sure he already knows and it has been passed around and agreed by the blocks.  Then it is officially a government.  It is over.  Tlar
~~~

  RDiddy:    Sorry, I didn’t phrase the question well. The NA will announce their nomination for PM, then the NA votes – is that right? And there are 189 members, so the nominee needs to get 90 votes?

 Tlar:  178

RDiddy:   That’s what I thought, thank you Tlar and KJW for the confirmation.   So now we have the Eid feast that runs through Thursday.  It will be interesting to see what this week brings.

Tlar:   It is amazing to what lengths these guys will try to go to.  Their new battle plan is to say now that the document they signed along with Maliki saying the NA is the largest block, is a forged document.

 If it is a forged document why then did Maliki say yesterday that it is not worth the paper it is written on.  Why did he not look surprised when it was brought to his attention but rather just imply it is a worthless piece of paper. 

It only took them 24 hours to come up with this new battle plan.

 No doubt this will alienate their new membership from their leadership even more as those new members realize these guys are liars.

State of Law: document leaked to the media that the National Alliance, the largest bloc in parliament forged

BAGHDAD / obelisk confirmed a coalition of state law, on Sunday, that the document, which was leaked to a number of media and talked about the age of the head of the House of Representatives has received in the first session of the parliament, and requires that the National Alliance, the largest parliamentary bloc forged.

The MP said the coalition Abdul Hadi Mohan Saadawi in an interview for “obelisk”, “The Age of the head of the House of Representatives Mehdi al-Hafez has not received any request is the request of state law that the largest bloc in the Iraqi parliament.”

 “The document that I talked about some of the media as a request from the National Alliance that is considered the largest parliamentary bloc is only a forged document no truth to them.”

 The MP, who served President of Age in the Iraqi parliament Mehdi al-Hafez has denied, on Sunday, receiving a request from the National Alliance as the largest parliamentary bloc, in the first meeting of the Council of Representatives.

 It is said that a disagreement between the political blocs, especially between the forces of the National Alliance on the interpretation of the largest parliamentary bloc, which will cost several constitutional form the next government.

 The head of the National Alliance, Ibrahim al-Jaafari read out a statement after a meeting of the leadership of the alliance, in 28 of last June, it was decided by the announcement that the National Alliance is the one who called the largest parliamentary bloc in the House of Representatives, which will nominate its candidate for prime minister on according to the constitution.

 The document revealed that it had seen “obelisk”, last Friday, that the National Alliance is composed of a coalition of state law and the Liberal block and block the citizen and the alliance of the National Reform and the Alliance of virtue and honest,

 they issued an official document to the President of the age of the parliament Mehdi al-Hafez, they fell as the largest parliamentary bloc in Parliament , according to what was signed by the leaders of the National Alliance.

For his part, denied that Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, signed a request made by the President of the Age Mehdi al-Hafez includes the consideration of the National Alliance biggest bloc.

 The head of the Federal Court judge, Medhat al-Mahmoud, had announced last Thursday, that the largest parliamentary blocs, which formed the government in 2010 will be the same ministerial cab for 2014, noting that the biggest bloc is composed under the dome of the parliament.

XXXX:      I don’t think it’s gonna matter much longer, anyway, tlar. Here’s an article Brule sent me this morning that says the Badr bloc has removed itself from SoL. The link doesn’t work, or I would have posted it as its own thread.

 News of the withdrawal of the block of Badr coalition of state law Ali Mohsen

buranthanews.com   Radi Section: News   July 27, 2014 23:18

 Reportedly contained on Sunday that the mass of Badr, headed by Hadi al-Amiri pulled out of the coalition of state law, according to the news, the reason for the withdrawal is due to the insistence of a coalition of state law on their adherence not to provide a substitute for Nuri al-Maliki and in compliance with something good reference, which is now calling for day and night change

 It is said that the number of seats in the national coalition is 63 seats through the two blocs Almnazavitin beneath Liberals won 34 seats, and the citizen with 29 seats, while a coalition of law, which claimed the first place, the number of seats to 92 seats, which includes four parliamentary blocs, including the Badr 22 seat in the law and the Dawa Party, and independents 70 seats.

 The addition of mass Badr raise the number of seats the coalition in the parliament to 85 seats, but the seats of the Reform Movement, and virtue, and who inevitably will join the national coalition, and this will prepare the biggest bloc, which will bear the formation of the next government without reference to the coalition of the law. “

 The Badr parliamentary bloc has confirmed earlier it was ready to support any candidate backed by state law, is al-Maliki, saying that Iraq does not represent a particular person and that Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki taking a course dramatically in the previous two sessions   

XXXX:   Remember, y’all, Masoum said he wouldn’t make an announcement until after Eid, and Eid is today. I think we get an NA nominee this week. Mahdi met with Masoum yesterday, and the other good guys are meeting with Talabani today.

They’re probably trying to decide between Chalabi and Mahdi, but with Mahdi getting the private audience with the president, I think it’ll be him. Chalabi seems like a team player, and I doubt he’s going to force the issue if that’s what the others have decided.

Tlar:  I’ll take Chalabi Revbo only because I have been saying I thought he would be the nominee since the middle of last year.  I’ll bet you 1 dinar before it revalues paid in USD.  Tlar

Rockstar:  Supreme Judicial enters the on-line: the largest parliamentary bloc interpreted the year 2010 and no need for re-interpretation

This decision was made after the elections in 2010, which gave the eligibility for the National Alliance to form a government as the largest parliamentary bloc in the parliament.

Rockstar:   Zubaidi: I saw with my own eyes the signing of al-Maliki on paper considered the National Alliance, the largest bloc

Rockstar:  There are two HUGE articles for you Maliki’s signature was witnessed on the document and the Supreme Judicial will not reinterpret this issue since it was already done in 2010!

Aaanth:   Eid starts today and runs 3 days.  it’s over on their wed. night.  so end of the week is when i’m looking for things to start moving along.  i am pretty sure everything is already in the staging area, just reading to launch.  they ain’t messing around.  there will be a new PM by the weekend if all goes well.   JMO

Tlar:  Aanth, you the man.   Question – That means on our Wednesday Eid is over doesn’t it?  Last night was their 28th and Wednesday our day is the day after their 3rd night?  EID will be over this Wednesday and they can get back to work?

Aaanth:  RALPH posted the article by sistani and it states “…

[Najaf - where]

The Office of the religious authority, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani said on Tuesday is the first day of Eid al-Fitr and the lunar month of Shawwal.

so our Monday night is ther tue morning.  it runs for 3 days, so that would be our thrusday. night.  (i think lol)  whenever it is, starts the run for the money!

http://www.currencychatter.com/apps/forums/topics/show/12969210-forged-document-?page=last

Tlar  By the way.  I think the document they all signed stating the NA is the largest block was most likely signed a while back at least a month ago. 

The reason for doing it back then was either the greatest accident because it is an unassay document, or the greatest planned in advance strategy by Hakim when he initially set out to change the rules in the NA. 

He is the most likely person to have presented this document to the NA.  At the time it probably meant nothing to the SOL or Maliki because they figured that having 95 MP’S they controlled the NA anyway so there was no reason not to sign it..

 They never dreamed that this document took total control out of their hands and would be used against them and essentially turned  the tide.

 This document has turned out to be the crux of their downfall.  Again hats off to Hakim or whoever asked all in the NA to sign this very important document locking in the win for the coalition. 

Had they not done this it could have gotten pretty messy potentially stalling the process. 

Now that’s what I call crossing the T’s and dotting the I’s and great foresight..   tlar

SkiRacer at TNT: “Lesson #6- Leaving the Workplace.”

LESSON 6:  Leaving the Workplace

Caveat: I am not a professional in anything that matters on this site… not financial manager, not attorney, not CPA, etc.   I merely offer opinions or summaries.

Is Your Future Solid Financially?

It takes far more to retire than one might expect. Over time inflation takes a big bite out of an income stream.  IF ( not likely) our inflation rate remains at about 3% a year then in 20 years your buying power is only one third what it is today. That is not going to cut it.

You can plan your own retirement or get a professional. Either way you need LOTS more than one 25K dinar note will yield.  IF you do not believe this, ask a grandparent how they have fared over time. 

 So don’t quit that job without a replacement income stream. Make sure you have replaced the income flow BEFORE TAXES and that it is flowing regularly.  This will take a few months or a quarter at least. Don’t forget to include:
….

Healthcare benefits

Retirement matching funds contributions

stock options

paid vacation time

Healthcare savings account contributions

Education benefits

There are many sites that will help you calculate what you need. Just google Retirement planning calculator. An easy one is found at BANKRATE.COM.   

 Where Will You Spend Time?

What do you plan to do with all your spare time?  Getting up, working out, eating get old and boring after a while. Have a plan. Spend time developing it.

Your TO DO list before Resigning:

Move your 401K to an IRA. That takes both time and effort to set up and make happen.

Shop for new healthcare coverage.  You need it and it isn’t cheap.  And the new rules make it harder to find it except in “the enrollment periods.”

Give up to 3 weeks notice, depending on your position and job.  The others aren’t leaving so don’t make it harder on them that you are.

Make sure this CE is done, signed, sealed, and delivered.  Make sure you have positioned it for the replacement income stream and that you have verified it works and is totally in place.

If you are young you need to set up a retirement plan. 

That means that some money needs to be set aside so it grows conservatively and steadily so if anything goes belly up you will still be able to retire and not need to return to the work force when you are 54.

In Victory for Kurds, Tanker Cleared to Offload Kurdish Oil in US

A tanker carrying crude oil from Iraqi Kurdistan has been permitted to unload its cargo near the Port of Galveston, in Texas, despite threats from Baghdad to sue anyone who buys Kurdish oil.

The docking of the ship in the US port marked not only the first arrival of Kurdish crude oil to the United States but an important victory for the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), which has faced challenges in finding buyers for its disputed crude oil.

Andy Kendrick, a Coast Guard petty officer, was quoted as saying the tanker was to pass inspection and then would be ready for offloading. He added that the US National Security Council, State and Homeland Security departments were informed of the arrival and status of the vessel.

Coast Guard officials went aboard the United Kalavrvta tanker on Sunday and verified the ship and crew’s ability to safely offload the oil, Kendrick told the Reuters news agency.

Crude offloading was to begin as soon as the ship arranged a contract with a company that performs lightering, the process of offloading that can take between several hours to days, depending on the size of the cargo.

A State Department official, speaking on condition of anonymity on Sunday because of the sensitivity of the issue, said officials were well aware of the ship’s location and cargo.

“This is a private commercial matter,” the official said. “Our policy has not changed. Iraq’s energy resources belong to all of the Iraqi people. As in many cases involving legal disputes, the United States informs the parties of the dispute and recommends they make their own decision with advice of counsel.”

Iraq’s Oil Ministry has threatened to sue anyone who purchases oil from the Kurdistan Region after the KRG struck deals to sell crude oil via Turkey without first receiving Baghdad’s approval. The KRG has accused Baghdad of using bullying tactics to stop its oil sales and maintains that it will only keep the 17 percent share of the oil revenue sales, in line with the Iraqi constitution.

“The government of Iraq will reserve the right to sue any company, refinery or trader that buys the Iraqi crude that KRG is illegally offering,” an official from Baghdad’s state oil marketer SOMO told Reuters on Thursday.

“Our foreign legal team is watching closely the movement of the vessel and is ready to target any potential buyer regardless of their nationality.”

The United States has warned against purchasing crude oil from Iraqi Kurdistan because of the potential legal implications from Baghdad. The United Leadership tanker carrying Kurdish crude appeared to be bound for the US in June but ended up in Morocco.

Marie Harf, deputy spokesperson for the State Department, told Rudaw that the State Department does not necessarily deem sales of crude oil from Iraqi Kurdistan illegal, but “there’s a legal dispute process here, an arbitration mechanism. There will be a legal ruling on it.”

Reuters reported that the ship is carrying approximately 1 million barrels of crude, at a value of about $100 million in the current market. The news agency reported that a crude tanker of Kurdish oil landed in Israel and was offloaded in late June, a claim the KRG denies.

Landing crude in the US is a feat for Iraqi Kurdistan, which is trying to establish its own oil trade and is in dire need of revenue since Baghdad cut the region’s funding in January.

CARRIE UNDERWOOD LYRICS
“How Great Thou Art”

O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder,
Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made;
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,

Thy power throughout the universe displayed.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

When through the woods, and forest glades I wander,
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees.
When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur
And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!


And when I think of God, His Son not sparing;
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation,
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart.
Then I shall bow, in humble adoration,
And then proclaim: “My God, how great Thou art!”

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

POOF SAID;

The issues are secrecy, discretion, and there are other eyes who read these newsletters who attempt to thwart the process. We are watching the final pieces of all of this giant jigsaw puzzle get put together and the holes are being filled, the cards are being punched, the chips are being gathered up and the folks who are needing to be caged are being handled as well. I am here to tell you that the bugs have been worked out and the ##### is getting straightened out…Everyone should be very pleased at what has been accomplished. It does mean that you should start seeing results and do appreciate all that has had to happen for it all to roll through the golden gates…P…

Those that are able to see
beyond the shadows and lies
of their culture will never be
understood let alone believed
by the masses.

HI ALL

HERE IS WHERE PART OF THE LID COMES OFF. PART OF THE NEWS BLACKOUT IS OVER.

MANY MONTHS AGO MANY TRANSACTIONS IN REGARD OF HISTORIC BONDS, DINAR, DONG, OTHER CURRENCY, GOLD, GEMS, ETC WERE COMPLETED, AND FUNDS WERE GENERATED. THEN THEY STARTED TO TRANSFER THESE FUNDS TO THE PAYEES, AND ALL ATTEMPTS TO TRANSFER FUNDS FAILED.

NOBODY KNEW WHY, AND THERE WAS MUCH SHOUTING AND BLAMING EVERYBODY AND EVERYTHING FROM THE CABAL TO OTHER FORMS OF VEGETABLES TO THE WEATHER. BUT STILL, NOBODY KNEW WHY THE TRANSFERS WERE ALL BLOCKED. THERE WAS GREAT SUFFERING TO THIS DAY AS PEOPLE LOST HOMES, FAMILIES, LIVES AS THEY WERE COUNTING ON THE PAYMENTS ON THE TRANSACTIONS.

NOW, MOST OF THE PAYMENTS WERE TO BE DONE IN THE NEW TRN. SINCE THE TRN WAS NOT READY, THEY ATTEMPTED TO TRANSFER IN USD AND EURO. NOTHING WORKED.

LAST THURSDAY, THE IMF ANNOUNCED THAT THE ADMINISTRATIVE BLOCK THEY PLACED ON THESE TRANSACTIONS WAS REMOVED, AND THEY COULD COMPLETE THE TRANSFERS IN PEACE.

THE CAT CAME OUT OF THE BAG.

WHY DID THE IMF NOT TELL EVERYBODY THAT THEY WERE PLACING ADMINISTRATIVE BLOCKS ON THE TRANSFERS? SIMPLE: IF THEY DID, THEIR DOOR WOULD BE POUNDED ON 24 HOURS A DAY BY PRINCIPALS, BANKERS, LAWYERS, AND BROKERS DEMANDING THEIR FUNDS BE RELEASED. THEY WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO GET ANY WORK DONE WITH THAT NIGHTMARE, SO THEY KEPT SILENT.

THIS MEANS THAT ON MONDAY, ALL GLOBAL TRANSACTIONS THAT AFFECT THE GCR, RV, AND GLOBAL RESET SUCH AS THE BONDS AND UNCUT, ETC, WILL BE RELEASED AND PAID OUT. THE WORLD WILL BEGIN TO BREATHE

HOWEVER, THIS WILL OCCUR ONLY NEXT WEEK. WHEN THE WEEK IS OVER AND THE MAJORITY OF THE TRANSACTIONS GET PAID OUT, THE SYSTEM WILL SHUT DOWN FOR A MONTH

THIS CLOSURE (NO INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS OTHER THAN NORMAL COMMERCE AND DOMESTIC BANKING) COINCIDES WITH THE ARRESTS OF THE CRIMINALS THAT HAVE RAPED AND PILLAGED HUMANITY FOR SO LONG

THIS INCLUDES BANKERS, SENATORS, CONGRESSMEN, HEADS OF STATE, ETC

THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HIDE THEIR MONEY, OR MAKE BAIL

WHEN THE SYSTEM RESTARTS, ALL MAJOR FUNDS TRANSFERS (OTHER THAN ESTABLISHED NORMAL COMMERCE) WILL HAVE TO PROVE THE PROVENANCE OF THE MONEY.

THE BAD GUYS WILL NOT BE ABLE TO, AND THEIR ILL GOTTEN WEALTH THEY COULD NOT HIDE, AND THE WEALTH THEY DID HIDE, WILL BE AN OPEN BOOK TO THE AUTHORITIES. GOODBYE BAD GUYS.

I CAN WRITE THIS BECAUSE IT IS FAR TOO LATE FOR THE BAD GUYS TO DO ANYTHING EXCEPT WAIT FOR THE INEVITABLE. IF THEY TRY TO HIDE THEIR MONEY NOW, THEY WILL BE IMMEDIATELY FLAGGED SINCE THE TRANSACTIONS ARE ALL LOGGED AND APPROVED FOR PAYMENT, AND THEIR TRANSFERS WOULD STAND OUT LIKE THE PROVERBIAL THUMB. TOO BAD, SO SAD.

THE PIGS ARE LAUGHING.

IN OTHER NEWS….

Subject: WF

When you return, would you ask Susan about something and WF? Exo is saying some interesting things about what WF is going to do to us all at exchange “that we have no earthly idea about.” It sounds like we will be screwed. He says they talk to WF traders and that is how they know but he isn’t telling us right now. I hope he does. Soon! He is asking us questions and saying we need to read between the lines and it is part of the bait and switch and trap at exchange… I know you and I have discussed the WF contract and that they are slated to do the exchanges, but this seems sinister!

1. WHY DO YOU REALLY THINK THE UNITED STATES TREASURY DEPARTMENT ALLOWS WELLS FARGO TO DO “FRIENDS & FAMILY DEALS” AND ISSUE SKR’S AND GFR’S ON A CURRENCY THAT IS NOT INTERNATIONALLY TRADABLE OR ACCEPTABLE?
2. WHAT DO YOU REALLY THINK WELLS FARGO IS DOING WITH THE TRILLIONS IN IQD THEY HAVE TAKEN IN AND ISSUED SKR’S AND GFR’S ON?
3. WHY DO YOU REALLY THINK WELLS FARGO IS ALLOWED AND AUTHORIZED TO ACCEPT CURRENCY THAT IS NOT INTERNATIONALLY TRADABLE AND ACCEPTABLE, YET OTHER BANKS CAN NOT?

SL

IN RESPECT OF 1., BECAUSE WF IS THE BANK THAT WILL BE DOING THE EXCHANGES.

IN RESPECT OF 2. WF IS SITTING ON A PILE OF CURRENCY WAITING FOR THE SIGNAL TO BEGIN THE RV EXCHANGE PROCESS.

IN RESPECT OF 3., BECAUSE WF HAS THE CONTRACT TO DO IT, AND NO OTHER BANK.

BY THE WAY, THE CHINESE FAMILY OWNS A GREAT PORTION OF WF. IF THE BANK THAT WAS CHOSEN TO DO THE DINAR WAS JP MORGAN, I WOULD SAY RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN.

Dear ZAP
Writing this brief note to share few of my personal insights as feedback to some of ur recent posts
- First again a giant thank you for ur posts!
1) fyi gaining a passport is hard when we are in free-fall without funds to pay for it or for our other mounting bills including needed health. care and. car repairs and rent, etc. Now you have my definition of how “hard” it is.
2) Susan rocks. Your comment about her so deserving our financial help is ful of impeccable integrity as she is. In my and others’ integrity we would send her regular funds IF I had them – do not. Could u honor us also? There are others of us (working our lifetimes for God Source) who have also been “attacked” healthwise (etc) to stop our creating… even close to ever since we were born. How about some gratitude we’re dedicated, strong, compassionate, ornery and magniloquently wildly lovingly naturally spirited enough to stay this creative course!?
3) When you only listed established already funded projects as those to receive funding , you left out those of us who have been working on our projects since our inception (close to forever) which need the funding and a safe enough environment within to create them… I prefer to feel and be appreciated and respected. I know u know we are also included in your planned projects – so wish for some acknowledgement and perhaps kudos please. ? Only my intent to to create these projects is stronger than my intention to retire from the “trenches.”

Thanks again + may prosperity wirh safety come sooner than soon.
Earthmom

IN RESPECT OF 1., YEAH IT IS AN UPHILL BATTLE, AND MANY (TOO MANY) OF US HAVE ENDURED THESE HARDSHIPS.

IN RESPECT OF 2., THERE WILL BE RELIEF FUNDS VERY VERY SOON. THE PROJECT SIDE WILL GIVE A HELPING HAND FOR IMMEDIATE NEEDS. EVERYBODY LOOK TO THE PROJECTS TO PROVIDE WHAT YOU REALLY NEED BECAUSE THROUGH THE PROJECTS, YOU WILL BE GIVING WHAT OTHERS NEED. SO YOUR NEEDS WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY LOOKED AFTER. NO MORE PAIN.

IN RESPECT OF 3., PLEASE SUBMIT THE PROJECTS. GET THEM IN SO WE CAN DO THE BUDGET OUTFLOWS. AND YES, I SO MUCH APPRECIATE THE THOUGHT THAT HAS GONE INTO THE PROJECTS, AND ONCE PEOPLE SEE OTHER BEING FUNDED, THEY WILL COME OUT OF THE WOODWORK AND GET THEIRS UP AND RUNNING PROPERLY. THIS IS OUR FUNCTION: TO HELP AND TO FUND THE PROJECTS.

GOD BLESS YOU FOR STICKING IT OUT.

Dear ZAP and Susan,

a) From your July 13th update, you mention St. Germain:

“AND YOU CAN THANK ST GERMAIN FOR HIS FINANCIAL ENGINEERING OF THESE TIMES.
PRETTY STRONG STUFF.”

Has beloved St. Germain embodied again on Earth, given his instructions through ancient Will documents, or have instructions come through surviving family representatives?

BOTH. HE IS HERE, AND ALSO SPEAKS THROUGH MANY MESSENGERS. IT IS THE TIME.

b) There was a neat prophecy noted on the Stage3Alpha website earlier this month:

Mahdi (English: Guided One) is the prophesied redeemer of Islam who will rule for seven, nine or nineteen years (according to differing interpretations)[1] before the Day of Judgment (yawm al-qiyamah / literally, the Day of Resurrection)[2] and will rid the world of evil.[3] According to Islamic tradition, the Mahdi’s tenure will coincide with the Second Coming of Jesus Christ (Isa), who is to assist the Mahdi against the Masih ad-Dajjal (literally, the “false Messiah” or Antichrist).

I HAVE ALWAYS WONDERED WHO THE HELL IS THE ANTICHRIST. AND WHETHER OR NOT HE IS RELATED TO THE VEGETABLE OR SIMIAN FAMILY IN SOME WAY.

c) I know who the “Prince-of-Peace” is. Prem Rawat (aka Maharaji) in 1970, in New Delhi India at age 12, before a gigantic crowd proclaimed “I declare that I will establish peace in this world”. He has not let up one iotta over these last 44 years. His focus is laser sharp; his words are true and healing — all with a simple smile of joy.

COOL. AS LONG AS THE LESSON OF MOTHER THERESA IS NOT REPEATED, OR JESUS. WE HAVE ALREADY DONE THE CRUCIFIXION THING, SO NO NEED TO DO THAT ONE CONTINUOUSLY (AS MANY STILL DO).

Thank you for your updates!!!
Much love,

JM

MUCH LOVE AND LIGHT.

BAGHDAD: Iraq’s parliament on Thursday elected veteran Kurdish politician Fouad Masoum as federal president, a move that paves the way for the much-delayed formation of a new government.

YAY! THEY FOUND AN ACCEPTABLE MONKEY.

Parliament speaker Salim Al Juburi announced that Masoum, who was the first prime minister of autonomous Iraqi Kurdistan more than two decades ago, had garnered the most votes.

Masoum won 211 votes while his challenger only managed 17 in the second round, according to figures announced by Juburi.

Masoum, 76, is one of the founders of current President Jalal Talabani’s Patriotic Union of Kurdistan party. He is considered a soft-spoken moderate, known for keeping good relations with Sunni and Shiite Arab politicians.

EXCELLENT. SOUNDS GOOD.

The vote for president — a largely ceremonial post — was delayed for a day when the Kurdish bloc requested more time to select a candidate. They named Masoum as their pick late Wednesday.

Under an unofficial agreement dating back to the 2003 US-led invasion, Iraq’s presidency is held by a Kurd while the prime minister is Shiite and the parliamentary speaker is Sunni.

MONKEYS RULE.

SO CONSIDERING EVERYTHING, WE ARE ALL SET TO GO. I HAVE DISCUSSED THE SEQUENCE AT LENGTH WITH SUSAN SO SHE UNDERSTANDS, AND CAN GIVE A GUIDING HAND WHERE NEEDED. THERE ARE SOME THINGS STILL IN BLACKOUT MODE AS SECURITY IS STILL PARAMOUNT, BUT OVERALL, WE CAN SEE THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL, AND OBJECTS ARE COMING INTO FOCUS IN THIS LIGHT.

I AM SO HAPPY WITH THE OVERALL PROGRESS YOU HAVE NO IDEA. I TOO HAVE BEEN DREAMING OF THE DAY WE CAN ALL GET TO THE REAL WORK AT HAND, AND BEGIN OUR 1000 YEARS OF PEACE AND PROSPERITY. THANKS TO THE WHITE HATS IN ALL AGENCIES, GOVERNMENTS, COMMUNITIES, ETC, OUR HUMANITY WILL INDEED GET THERE RATHER QUICKLY NOW.

I WILL TRY TO GET THE LATEST PICTURE OF SNUFFLES (HAMISH) GRINNING. THEY TRIED TO GET A PIX OF HIM LAST WEEK DOING THAT, BUT THE APPLE DISTRACTED HIM.

BE HAPPY. WE ARE AT THE END OF THE TREK, AND ABOUT TO GO ON ANOTHER PATH. MANY TECHNOLOGIES ARE NOW COMING TO REMEDIATE OUR PLANET, AND GIVE US FRESH AIR AND CLEAN WATER AGAIN. FLYING PIGS ARE EVERYWHERE NOW.

IN LOVE AND LIGHT IN OUR SERVICE
