UU6826 – "Ex-PM Maliki Losing Ground Fast"  by Mnt Goat

Hello Everyone,

So this week there is much news again. Much of it was WOW news and long awaited news. So where do we go from here now that many of these laws are done? I will tell you today.

Sorry this news letter is very long today but mostly due to a few long articles. Please take the time to read it since I have taken much of my time to prepare it for you. I wish everyone a very good weekend and we will see what next week brings us.

I will emphasize that today’s news is about Maliki’s fate.

Have you ever been to the deli counter at the grocery store? There you have to take a number and wait your turn for service. 

So this is like Maliki too only he does not know it fully yet. But soon his number is about to be called…….lol…I think he would look very nice in an orange jumper suit!

Today’s News

Today is Friday October 30th and still no RV.

I am hearing once again a possible RV window coming up in mid November.

Folks all I can say is stay off this RV roller coaster. Stay way from this stuff.

Once again so called intel “gurus” will try to convince you that the RV window is going to happen. Oh they will sound forceful and know it all. They will sound convincing too.

Do not fall for it again….please. It is a mind trap. This is all nonsense. Like they themselves tell you that “no one will know the date or time of the RV”….so why do they then know? Why don’t they follow their own advise?

Oh but they will claim they have special contacts that spill the beans only to them. They brag that only they can tell them the up-to-date, minute-by-minute news of any RV. Really?  Well if they do then how is it that they have NEVER been correct in the five years they have been having their conference calls? So how good are these contacts anyhow. Why even bother? Incidentally most of their contacts I know all about and they are people just like you and me trying to put this info together. They know no more than we do.

Funny how there is always something else that stops it. Folks I am trying to tell you there will ALWAYS be something that stops it because these RV windows are just projections and nothing more. They are not meant for the general public consumption. These gurus are doing you disservice not a service. They are not helping you but making you drink the RV poison cool-aid. It is very upsetting and some government officials should step in and resolve these perpetrators.

When the PTB are ready to push this RV for Iraq NOTHING and I mean NOTHING will stop it..

I have explained these projected RV windows to you over and over again. In the government the right hand does not know what the left hand is doing. They pop out of these meetings and go full swing towards the “go ahead” for an RV but the other hand knows darn well it will only be stopped later in the cycle. I do not know why they need to get everyone excited each time. So relax and watch the news. This is the best source of cure for the RV blues….

No prospects for an RV either in the coming month of November. Sorry Folks! Later December and possibly early Jauary has prospects but let’s all listen to the news first before we go off half cocked and hyped up. We need to see how Iraq progresses in all the areas we have been talking about in these news letters. There is a target and a plan I can assure you of this. They are moving at lighting speed to get there.

We also found out this week there has been a special committee set up specifically to assist Iraq in reviewing matters associated with issues in going back to the international arena. They have set a target of mid 2016 to be fully international. Did you hear me? I said fully international by mid 2016.

My personal beliefs:
If the world does not explode into WWIII over the Syrian / Iranian / Russia crisis and they can work through this Assad issue there is hope that maybe Iraq can meet this target in 2016.

The holidays are coming soon and so take time to prepare and get your minds off this RV. Let the holidays bring many blessings with or without an RV.

Update: On The Needed Reform Laws

So many of you emailed me and are upset that the RV has not yet happened since
this week alone we have heard  fantastic news about the passing of many of the needed, long awaited reforms laws, i.e. Investment law, National ID cards bill, the National Guard law and many others.

The only answer I can give to you is this – GET A LIFE!

Do you really know what is going on in Iraq? Do you really think someone is just standing by waiting to flick the RV switch once these laws were passed?

How many times must I tell you they need three things to happen prior to any RV – Political, Economic and Security Stability.  So do you really feel they now have all this…Really?

But they are getting very close as I know ISIS does not have to be perfectly gone in order to RV. Also the economy must be stable meaning they must meet their budget somehow and be utilizing their revenues to fund projects rather than have them squandered by corrupted officials. We are now seeing this cleaned up.

But the one item we are seeing a reluctance to get is the full ridding of Iranian influence in Iraqi politics. If Iraq is to be truly a sovereign nation it must proof itself worthy and be a sovereign nation. The USA is standing firm on this issue since they know Iran is an axis of evil and a terrorist nation. They will NOT allow Iranian influence in Iraq any longer.

Since now that the National Guard law is passed they are working on how to fill the ranks of the government legalized militias in the provinces. How will they do this? If you have been paying attention to past news you read an article I presented on “conscripting” citizens for these National Guard units. This idea was highly recommended as a solution by the USA. So now we see a bill being worked on namely a bill for conscripting (somewhat like the DRAFT) Iraq citizens. The training camps (boot camps) are already established and coalition advisors/trainers are ready for these new recruits. We wait again to see how all this plays out. But his new bill will give us a sense of timing. We know it takes about 8-12 weeks to fully train a soldier.

Next we still need the Amnesty law to be fully implemented and passed. In reality we know they have already let many political prisoners out of jail. But the bill was never officially passed and this has other ramifications and provisions once they do. What are they waiting for?  I am not certain but I suspect there must be a connection with something else they are working on. Maybe it is the National Guard units and maybe will now see the Amnesty go thru?
Update: On the Maliki Syndrome

Still the demonstrators call out for Maliki to stand trial for corruption and genocide. The pressure is building for justice.

So today, once again, I want to emphasize to you that Maliki must be taken down and brought to justice or there will be no RV. How do I know this and why am I so sure?

I say this because the demonstrators going back even to 2013, as they still continue to demand justice with all these high ranking officials involved in these corruption cases. We have recently seen the judicial, under these pressures, pluck out hundreds more of these officials are prosecute them. So when is it Maliki’s turn? When will he be wearing that orange jump suite?

I can assure you this must be done prior to the scheduled December Reconciliation (or Unity) Conference or they will not get anywhere in the conference and it will only be a failure. They have tried this conference before and do not want to fail again. This time they want to review all the demands of the people and slant the government’s progress report in this direction. So Maliki must be taken down and with him goes the Iranian influence. I included a couple articles below to give you a taste of what is happening in this direction. I suspect we will see his trial sometime in early November. This is only conjecture on my part and we will see how it all plays out.

I also want to let you know that the Accountability and Justice law is also much needed (not yet passed) and this law may be the breaking point for President of the Supreme Judicial Council, Medhat al-Mahmoud. Must they wait for this law first before reaching out for Maliki? Do they also intend to go after Mahmoud? I can assure you of this – none of them will walk free from all this corruption  while under the Maliki administration.

It is just a matter of time – “The die has already been cast!” Do you know what this saying means?

The Iraqi Commission of Integrity (CoI) spokesman Adil Nouri has claimed that half of the government's oil income and funds for reconstruction were 'stolen' and 'vanished' from Iraq during the 8-year period of office of former President Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.

Speaking at the Iraqi Parliament, Nouri said that around 500 billion dollars from government coffers has "disappeared" and is perhaps the greatest corruption in history.

Underlining that Iraq's oil income between 2006 and 2014 alone was only $ 822 billion, he said that the Maliki government had also received more than $250 billion in funds from many countries, namely the U.S., used to pay the salaries and pensions of Iraqi government workers and for reconstruction projects.

Within the scope of corruption investigations carried out by the CoI, Nouri stated that former defense minister Hazm Shalan, former trade minister Abdul-Fatah Sudani and former electricity minister Aiham al-Sammarae were involved in graft during their tenures and charged of corruption.

Along with 53 other officials, a prosecution against the Iraqi Red Crescent authorities was also brought and is still continuing.

Adding that some of the investigations have been concluded, Nouri said "600 officials including ministers, deputy ministers, advisors, general directors have been sued on grounds of corruption. There are even officials who have been sentenced to 130 years in jail."

"Former Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has also been sued for corruption but there is still no solid decision or development so, he is still out of jail," Nouri stated.

Nouri also pointed out that graft was mostly revealed within the military, particularly in the purchase firearms.

"There are a great number of them (ghost employees) in the ministry of interior…There are 57,000 people being paid as workers since 2007, when in fact they have not been to work a single day," added Nouri.

"The ministry of defense has started carrying out some procedures to eliminate this kind of corruption. It has been decided to make everyone receive his own salary in person instead of lists," he said as reported by Rudaw, a Kurdish media network.

In September Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi had removed 123 deputy ministers and director generals amid a reform drive aimed at curbing corruption and streamlining the government.

Parliament also signed off on a reform plan proposed by Abadi as well as additional measures, and the prime minister began issuing orders for changes, including cutting 11 cabinet posts and slashing the bloated number of guards for officials

Friday Mnt Goat Update - "Ex-PM Maliki Losing Ground Fast" Part 2 of 2
Update: Iraqi Economic Situation

I included this article today to reveal its significance to you . There are a few golden nuggets in this article , as is in most articles if you read them carefully. First - the article below is telling us Iraq is trying to get loans once again from the IMF to make up the upcoming deficit. We have heard they want to complete this 2016 budget no later than December. It has already gone to the parliament for discussion. I have told you also not to put any weight on this budget as it will NOT force the RV. Again I say it will not force the RV. If this was the case they would certainly not be going to the World Bank for a loan.

Secondly – we are beginning to see how politics is already raising is ugly head in this matter of the budget. We wonder all the time how it takes so long to get anything done. So here we see parliamentary member Ahmed al-Badri saying “that he will not pass the federal budget for the next year in 2016 unless it includes the application of the petro-dollar law and give the oil-producing provinces right for every barrel of oil produced, as likely rebalancing to the Cabinet, as the government called for the application without delay”

So I have told you before this new oil law is all about giving oil producing regions full rights to sell their oil above and beyond meeting the government quotas as needed to fulfill the budget. As we know oil produced for the government only get the provinces 17% oil revenue kickbacks and this too is usually delayed now due to the economy and the cost of fighting ISIS. So through this new oil bill, the provinces want to produce and sell oil and  be able to keep all the proceeds, just as long as they also meet government quotas for the budget. The article just confirmed what I have been saying. We will see there is now becoming pressure to get this done.

The next article in this section is also telling us much. We now know that nearly half of the oil revenues produced over the last 8 years of the Maliki administration was either waisted or stolen. Anyway it did not go towards the intended reconstruction efforts. So now Iraq must increase its oil production and negotiate sales of oil around the world to make up this difference.

So for the economy of Iraq this is what we do know. Have you ever heard the term the middle eastern countries are “swimming in oil”? Well soon Iraq will be swimming in money. We have heard about their new program with emphasis on DIVERSIFACTION into agriculture, minerals and other products. So this is a top priority for Iraq as it is said these efforts can generate equal amounts of revenue as from the oil.

Oh- did I mention the projected Tariff revenues (if they can get the currency back online) can also reval that of oil production? 

Oh – did I mention the recovery of 60+ billion dollars (not dinars) from stolen funds from Iraq (and more to come)?

So why all the loans then?

What everyone does not know and these articles about these loans do not tell us is this money obtained is ear marked for certain projects. It must go directly to the projects. These are “pet” projects in Iraq agreed to by Iraq long time ago. They now included them in their budget and so want these organizations to pay for them.

Update: On IMF Global Reforms

Now I want to shake off the dust from everyone’s memories. Do you remember the IMF reforms that the USA refused to even vote on to support the IMF in strategy for global reforms? These reforms go back as far as 2010. These reforms were agreed to by the USA in 2010 at the G20 summit although never even brought up for vote since then. 

Now the article below is telling us the USA senate supports these reforms and Congress may soon vote on them.

What impact will this have on Iraq? Well the USA will certainly be giving up voting rights and this could move many decisions away from consensus in USA terms. It could also be a bargaining chip for the USA in terms of getting what it wants for Iraq out of the IMF.

US congress push to implement IMF reforms

Friday 30 October 2015 - 2:34am

File: International Monetary Fund managing director Christine Lagarde during an IMF summit. The IMF executive board has approved a $932 million loan program for Jamaica. 

WASHINGTON - Senior U.S. officials said on Thursday they hoped to see the U.S. Congress approve reforms to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) which will give emerging markets a bigger say at the global lender.

Reforms agreed in 2010 would put Brazil, China, India and Russia among the fund's top 10 shareholders but have been held up in Congress, which must back them. (BRIC if they would put it in the correct order)

A source familiar with IMF discussions said there appeared to be a chance of a deal to pass the reforms before Group of 20 leaders meet in Turkey on November 15-16.

U.S. Treasury Under Secretary for International Affairs, Nathan Sheets, said the Obama administration was focused on getting the deal done, although he did not specify a timeframe.

"The case has been effectively made on the Hill. Senior legislators from both parties recognize the importance and I remain hopeful that we will see it," he said at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

White House G20 adviser Caroline Atkinson said the IMF reform was very important and she continued to press for it.

The Senate appropriations committee has approved a funding bill that would also implement the IMF reforms, although the House version of the bill excludes them.

News agency Bloomberg reported on Thursday that Republican lawmaker Kay Granger, who is responsible for shepherding the House bill, said she was optimistic the two chambers could work out a compromise.
