Samson:  Central refuses to distinguish between categories of banknotes

The Central Bank of Iraq refused on Saturday, 21 April 2018, to distinguish between categories of banknotes, considering discrimination a legal offense.

The central bank said in a statement to the "obelisk" that "Iraqi banknotes are homogeneous in all categories and have absolute power of absolutism and are accepted by the Central Bank and its branches, banks, institutions and the public."

"The distinction between categories by imposing a certain category on the public or refusing to accept a certain category is unacceptable and is contrary to law," the central bank said.

The current Iraqi currency consists of seven categories: 250 dinars, 500 dinars, 1000 dinars, 5,000 dinars, 10,000 dinars, 25,000 dinars and 50,000 dinars, and the coins were withdrawn by the bank for non circulation by the public.     LINK

EHankins:  Would this be or be a part of the co-existance of currencies?
Since the CBI is saying there is no distinguishing between all said notes... that's co-existing in my wallet...IMO..Hawaii sooner than all may think... IMO.

CBI sounds like a bulldog in that article.

Hey!!!! This is the way it is, and NO OTHER WAY!!!!!!! IMO.

Dena:  I remember hearing.... if we read it , its already done

Internationalism represents Article 8 acceptance imo. Thus, the training and expertise required to maintain and manage the new systems is going to be an on going part of Article 8 in conjunction with other members that are in similar circumstance and will also benefit, as noted by the memorandum of understanding with Iraq, APB, ABB and the IFA all apparently apart of a General Council of Banks and Islamic Financial Insitutions.. ...

Turkey to Repatriate All Gold from US to Ditch the Dollar , 21 APRIL

Turkey Will Repatriate All Gold From The US In Attempt To Ditch The Dollar

After Venezuela, Germany, Austria and the Netherlands prudently repatriated a substantial portion (if not all) of their physical gold held at the NY Fed or other western central banks in recent years, this morning Turkey also announced that it has decided to repatriate all its gold stored in the US Federal Reserve and deliver it to the Istanbul Stock Exchange, according to reports in Turkey's Yeni Safak. It won't be the first time Turkey has asked the NY Fed to ship the country's gold back: in recent years, Turkey repatriated 220 tons of gold from abroad, of which 28.7 tons was brought back from the US last year.

According to the latest IMF data, Turkey’s gold reserves are estimated at 591 tons, worth just over $23 billion. This makes Ankara the 11th largest gold holder, behind the Netherlands and ahead of India.

Turkey's gold repatriation come at a sensitive time for Turkey's currency, the lira, which has been pounded, and plunged to all time lows against both the dollar and the euro despite runaway, double-digit inflation in Turkey, as the central bank is seemingly afraid of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and refuses to raise rates.

Meanwhile, Erdogan has taken a tough stance against the US currency, criticized dollar loans and saying that international loans should be given in gold instead.

"Why do we make all loans in dollars? Let’s use another currency. I suggest that the loans should be made based on gold,” Erdoğan said during a speech at the Global Entrepreneurship Congress in Istanbul on April 16, according to Hurriyet.

In what some saw an appeal for a gold standard by the Turkish president, Erdogan added that “with the dollar the world is always under exchange rate pressure. We should save states and nations from this exchange rate pressure. Gold has never been a tool of oppression throughout history."

Well, now that Turkey will soon have all of its gold on the ground, Erdogan will be able to launch a gold-backed currency if he so desires. Unfortunately, all signs point to the gold being repatriated only so it can be raided, pillaged and promptly deposited in offshore vaults by members of the ruling oligarchy.

As noted above, Turkey has been one of several countries which have moved their gold from the world's biggest, and most secure gold vault, that located 95 feet below sea level at 33 Liberty Street in Manhattan, also known as the New York Fed.

The repatriation wave began in 2012, when Venezuela announced it was withdrawing all of its 160 tons of gold at the NY Fed, valued at around $9 billion. Germany’s Bundesbank then demanded 300 tons be returned, with the Fed saying it would take seven years to do so; a scrambling Germany was able to complete the process 3 years ahead of schedule. The Netherlands has also repatriated 122.5 tons of gold.

As a result, according to the latest Fed data, the amount of physical gold stored at the NY Fed has dropped to the lowest on record, or 7.819 thousand tons, following a withdrawal scramble that started in 2014 and continued until the end of 2016. After a 15 month hiatus, withdrawals resumed in 2018, with 15.5 tons of gold repatriated in January and February.

“The central banks started the repatriation already a few years ago, meaning before we had Brexit, Catalonia, Trump, AFD or the rising tensions between the Politburo in Brussels and the nations of Eastern Europe,” said Claudio Grass of Precious Metal Advisory in Switzerland.

According to him, the world is becoming less centralized. “If we follow this trend, it should be obvious that the next step should be an even bigger break up into smaller units than the nation state. With such geopolitical fragmentation comes also the decentralization of power."


4-21-2018  Newshound Guru Mnt Goat  …we are witnessing something ongoing that we have NEVER seen before and only hoped and prayed for all these years. This is the near end of the “PROJECT TO DELETE THE ZEROS” as we are being told in many consistent articles that the CBI is ready to move to the next step that of the reinstatement of their currency. They are ready to go and put in place all the needed reforms and processes. We could not hope for any better news.  Just the fact that they are talking about the project to delete the zeros once again is music to my ears. It has been so long since we heard anything positive. Now it is here. Let’s see how it all plays out.

4-21-2018   Intel Guru Dr.
 Clarke   Ramadan will Not Stop this.  No Holidays will Stop this.  Maliki will Not Stop this. (or any other candidate)  Parliament in recess till June, will Not Stop this.   Kurdistan will Not Stop this.  Syrian & surrounding rebels, including Iran, will Not Stop this. Opposing Political parties within the U.S. and abroad, will Not Stop this.  The Elections will Not Stop this. HAVE YOU CIRCLED SUNDAY, APRIL 29, 2018 yet?   WE LIKE THIS DATE.  BECAUSE, it’s 2 Days away from TUESDAY, MAY 1, 2018...12 Days Prior to the Election…bringing “MAY Flowers”....and it's a FULL MOON.  We’ve stated before in our Previous 3 POSTS:  “MAY 2018”…MAGIC.  Sleep Well Tonight…   [post 2 of 2]

4-21-2018   Intel Guru Dr. Clarke   The United States Cannot and Will Not afford, a glitch in the system, during the Iraq Elections. They HAVE protected & will continue to protect, their investment - Short Term & Long Term. Quietly.  An RV in Iraq WILL NOT insure a Win for Abadi…because Abadi has ALREADY Won…THUS, why he has allegedly said, he’s going to delete the zero’s, IMMEDIATELY AFTER the elections, MAY 12th, 2018…which is 60 DAYS after March 12, 2018 when they publicly came out and said, the Lower Denominations of currency were being released “In the Coming Days”.   [post 1 of 2….stay tuned]


4-21-2018  Newshound/Intel Guru Frank26   Alak and the CBI have been telling you – Boldly!  They are ready to lift the 000's from their exchange rate because they are ready to RI.  They tell you they seek a suitable environment, but you don't need the Hubble Telescope to see they have that already. IMF brags how safe Iraq is. WTO says its a good place to invest.  USA commends Iraq on their security and stability... 

4-21-2018  Newshound Guru Kaperoni  ...We read matter of factly the other day in a news article from Prime Minister Abadi that they expect to open the banking system or engage the banking system with the world directly after the elections so there isn’t anything more clear than that…

4-21-2018   Newshound Guru  EHankins   Article: “Iraq to resume payment of compensation to Kuwait”    Now... if my memory serves me correctly... a long long while back I remember Frank [Guru Frank26] telling us that Kuwait was happy to wait to be compensated until obviously now, because when they do receive this compensation the "value" of the Iraqi dinar would be "STRONGER", of more value. Perhaps this is simply obvious but adds to the "winners" column in our favor. IMO. 

4-21-2018  Newshound Guru sandyf  Question: “IF it WAS $3.21 and we sanctioned them, then WHY can't it go back to $3.21?”  There is a very good reason why not. At the time the dinar was rumoured to be at that rate there was about 20 billion IQD in circulation, that would have put the liability on the CBI at around 64 billion USD.  When the new IQD was introduced in 2003, 6.5 trillion were put into circulation at a rate of 1900/USD, this would have made the liability on the CBI in the order of 3.4 billion USD.  As at the 31st March 2018 the liability on the CBI in respect of issued currency the equivalent of 35.6 billion USD. A revaluation to $3.71 would put the liability on the CBI to about 156 trillion USD, or to put it in perspective, nearly 8 times the US national debt.

4-21-2018  Newshound Guru chattels  I do not believe that the dinar is a scam per se. It was a highly speculative venture that has been impacted by developments / conditions in Iraq, social, financial and political. The outcome was and is unknown…About 22 days remaining before the Iraqi people go to the voting booths.
