equall says to BGG(6:34 PM): What happened to Millionday?
BGG says to equall(6:35 PM): She is taking care of some personal business. I told her not to worry - we'll be here and tak care of things. No problem.
BGG says to equall(6:35 PM): take care of things.
BGG says(6:35 PM): now...
BGG says(6:36 PM): Mods/VIP/ News hounds - anyone have some opening thoughts??
BGG says(6:36 PM): an article??
BGG says(6:36 PM): I have a few things - if you haven't seen the OP ED I just did on THE BLOG - it is worth a read.
BGG says(6:37 PM): Ok - we'll open with that...
BGG says(6:37 PM): Anyone promising, or hinting at, or alluding to – or inferring, or offering an “early exchange” – or any exchange with any abnormal benefit IS LYING (like everyone else on the internet – according to Hotels.com
BGG says(6:37 PM): There is no great Cabal conspiracy, no Dragon family holding sway over US financial markets (or an Iraqi RV) and no Chinese contract rate… (more internet BS). Not one person has “exchanged” under such circumstances.
BGG says(6:38 PM): These and other internet yarns are spun for a few very basic reasons – readership, sponsorship (because they are paid to)… or, in the worst case scenario – to separate you from your money. To get you to join, disclose and ultimately send Dinar somewhere in hopes of entitlement. There is no such thing. You have a better chance at one of these Nigerian lottery offers being real than one of these scammers paying off.
BGG says(6:38 PM): This is a real investment with real investors. Unfortunately, it has attracted some unsavory characters. Enough with the bad news. What I can tell you…
BGG says(6:38 PM): (AND HERE IS THE KICKER!!)
BGG says(6:39 PM): This article showing Dr Shabibi next to the current Finance Minister in Kuwait is HUGE NEWS (Getty Images is no small potatoes outfit). Him being labeled “the Gov of the CBI” could be taken a couple of ways.
First, he was at one time the Gov of the CBI. This could simply be a title of respect. Which I am suspicious of… even so – it is big to see him acting in concert with the financial upper leadership of Iraq.
On the other hand, this piece – taken in context with the Alliraqnews.com article and Abbadi essentially giving a “veiled declaration” that Allaq would be replaced soon is HUGE NEWS!!!
BGG says(6:39 PM): It should be noted this meeting took place in Kuwait… and he attended openly. Even though Dr Shabibi was exonerated – according to my sources he won’t come back to Iraq (for any term of stay) with Maliki still “on the loose”.
BGG says(6:39 PM): (in fact, for those in here right now - I am texting him right now... )
BGG says(6:39 PM): (Baghdad contact)
tbob says(6:40 PM): smile
BGG says(6:40 PM): Whatever your belief – Dr Shabibi had something planned Maliki did not like. For Maliki to sweep into the CBI on a weekend and scoop up all Shabibi loyalists… something was going down…
and since Maliki has essentially played the obstructionist all along (at the behest of Iran – mostly),
one could safely assume Dr Shabibi’s future involvement would be not good for the continued “Maliki doctrine” (whatever that is or was…). Meaning – things in the future, won’t be like they were.
BGG says(6:40 PM): Further – I think this meeting and it’s openness, Abadi’s “veiled declaration” the next day and the recent “buzz” in meetings with the CBI and various branches of Parliament is looking like a huge “black eye” for whatever Maliki’s aspirations might have been.
Those aspirations hinge on the current GOI not being able to meet their commitments. It does not look like that will happen – in fact, it is clear… SOMETHING THIS WAY COMETH!!!
BGG says(6:40 PM): Ok - ??'s
Mrs BGG says to larrykn(6:41 PM): Okay, go.
larrykn says(6:41 PM): it looks like if Shabs is back one would think Maliki is no longer on the loose
BGG says to larrykn(6:41 PM): IMHO - and that is all this is
BGG says to larrykn(6:41 PM): He is not back - yet...
LLN65 says to Mrs BGG(6:41 PM):
sczin11 says(6:42 PM): BGG...MAY I?
BGG says to larrykn(6:42 PM): as I point out - it could be out of respect... but more likely a "precursor" to something coming...
Mrs BGG says to sczin11(6:42 PM): Go ahead and follow up..
BGG says to larrykn(6:43 PM): particularly in light of the artilce in Alliraqnews.com with Abadi and his "veiled declaration" towards Alak...
sczin11 says(6:43 PM): IMHO, SHABIBI HAS BEEN IN THE BACKGROUND, AT LEAST SINCE GTHE AFTERNOON OF DEC 22, 2014, IF NOT BEFORE THAT..THERE WERE STORIES HE WAS WORKING CLOSELY WITH THE IMF, FOR THE BENEFIT OF HIS COUNTRY, IRAQ
BGG says to larrykn(6:43 PM): IMHO - (and estimation) it could be as long as weeks or as short as days.
larrykn says(6:44 PM): whatever it is things are in the wind
BGG says to sczin11(6:44 PM): quite honestly - I never put much faith in such claims... this very much seems to illustrate such a relationship existed.
Mrs BGG says(6:44 PM): ???? Any
sczin11 says(6:44 PM): DR SHABIBI, HAS BEEN RUMORED IN THE GREEN ZONE, OUTSIDE THE COUNTRY, IN TEH CBI OFFICES..SEEN AND READ IT ALL.. REGARDLESS OF HIS PHYSICAL LOCATION, HE HAS PLAYED SOME ROLE IN THE MR REFORM PROCESS, AS IT HAS BEEN PLAYING OUT SINCE THE NEW REGIME HAS TAKEN OVER, IMHO
BGG says(6:45 PM): Ok - BRB with more...
BGG says(6:46 PM): Urgent urgent. ..Office of Al-Abbadi: temporary and agency appointments will expire soon
BGG says(6:47 PM): [In Baghdad] Saad Al-Hadithi said, a spokesman for the Office of Prime Minister Haidar Al-Abbadi said “acting appointments of independent bodies are temporary and will expire in the next few weeks.”

BGG says to dinarmassa(6:50 PM): the only one - truly independant - that comes to mind, is the CBI... which is why it is so obvious what he is saying...
BGG says to dinarmassa(6:50 PM): the only other MIGHT BE the integrity commission... there is, of course, some turmoil there as well.
BGG says to dinarmassa(6:51 PM): but the CBI is the obvious one.
