MNT GOAT NEWS LETTER Edition: UU6925 Dated: April 13, 2016
Title: “Delaying again the Technocratic Govt?”
I know my news letters are very long and many of you shy away now from reading them, as you want to know what is happening in Iraq but you don’t want to put in the time to learn as I have put in the time to explain it to you. Today is no exception. There is a ton of good news and I hope you can absorb it all.
So do you want to be spoon fed information about Iraq and so would you rather listen to yet more nonsense from some of these intel “gurus”? These so called intel “gurus” will gladly spoon feed you their version of their nonsense. They will lead you around in circles like lost sheep. Many of you go from forum to forum scrounging to find a thread of news that tells you that the RV is imminent and will happen this weekend once again. Then on Monday mornings when nothing happens you strike out and want vengeance. You listen to this nonsense that the RV is being held up (once again) due to the “establishment of the New Republic” or some other new conspiracy. Really? Do you really believe in all this nonsense or are you just trying to hold on to something?
Then why not hold on to the truth? Is it not easier to know the truth that the RV is coming and to track the slow progress of getting all the pieces completed and know and understand the strategy that Abadi is taking to get them there?
The situation is also very dynamic and this does not make it any easier to understand or follow. Many want the process to be written in stone but have told you all many times that Iraq continues to write the story as they go along. Even they do not know of a solid committed timeframe. Iraq is constantly planning ahead and targeting however they can not meet these targets without the help from all involved. There are still many politicians who do not want progress in Iraq, as they see progress as too great of a change and they like their snug limited world of corruption as it stands today.
So yes we do talk about things like the lower denominations being ready to launch one month and nothing happens. We wait and wait. We keep telling everyone it’s about to happen but nothing happens.
Then four months later we find out they held it up (told to us directly in an article) that this was due to re-planning a new strategy. Instead they decided re-print the entire classes of lower denominations. Why at this time did they decide to do this?
They decided to increase the security features of their currency and nothing more. They figured that the small amount of investment was worth going forward in light of all the past fraud and counterfeiting. It is that simple!
The CBI also reasoned that they had to wait anyhow for the reshuffle of the cabinet and the other reform laws that were stalled in parliament. Since all of this must come together at some point and converge it was not yet at this point. This is called multi-taking. Ever hear of it?
Remember too the CBI is working as one entity and the GOI as another entity. Both entities working separately but coordinating efforts. The CBI plans out events as they are being told the GOI will accomplish certain task on time. Then when these tasks do not get completed, the CBI adjust and decides to change strategy. It is that simple.
This is the convergence I keep talking about of the Financial (CBI) with the Political (GOI) side and eventually they will come together. So is there anything wrong with Iraq changing their minds and re-planning a new strategy? Does this make the inevitability of the RV any more unreal? We must be flexible in our thinking and adjust to Iraq. We are not implementing the RV, it is Iraq. Get it? But the important part if is we must search for the FACTS and be TRUTHFUL in these coming days and not some “secret” sources or bank stories or memos….lol…lol..
If you have been reading my news letters all along you can see the enormous progress and the obstacles preventing the final conclusion to the mandated tasks at hand for Iraq. Yes it is easy to critisise them and be sarcastic. I too often feel this way as Meinen Hubby and I often joke about it. But these are mandated tasks that must happen since the RV is a by-product and not really the main event. You have read the necessity to go international and why it is inevitable.
I know many of you desperately need this RV but that does not justify hanging around these people who tell you their nonsense that only fills your head with yet more confusion and gobbly goop. This is not going to get the RV any faster.
Have you noticed I have been using the analogy of “Charlie the tuna” from the Star-kist tuna TV commercials (LINK) since it seems very appropriate to many of you so called intel “gurus”.
Have you seen these commercials with “Charlie the tuna”?
“Charlie” is always wanting people to desire buying his tuna with good taste rather than tuna that taste good. He presents himself as a glamorous and attractive tuna and tries to get Star-kist to hook him. He thinks this is what people want and desire. He thinks this is the quality they want. In other words he hypes himself up like many of these intel forums and conference calls do for you. Is this not like Charlie? Instead of bringing you the truth of what is happening in Iraq they bring you what they think you want to hear. Like Charlie they are not concerned what you really need but instead what they think you want to hear. Why do they do this?
Like with Charlie they want to hook you. They want to be liked and listened to. They need you to keep coming to visit their sites and click on the ads. They need you to keep clicking on the donation button. They need you to call in to their “intel conference” calls to get their ratings up.
They have hidden agendas and are getting filthy rich off of selling currency and now we see other products too. Where is the transparency and accountability for all this money?
This is their real agenda to “look good” with their intel (is what they think you want to hear) rather than intel that “taste good” (is truthful and honest).
So do you want to listen to a “Charlie the tuna”? - If so please be my guest but you will never learn what is truly happening in Iraq and always be running yourself in these constant circles from week to week with the same regurgitated/recycled intel over and over again.
I also want to tell everyone that I know many of these so called intel “gurus” are now using my news letters as their sources for your intel. This is fine with me since as long as the TRUTH is being presented why should I care who communicates it. It would be nice though if you didn’t bash me in the same conference call as you tell of my intel in the same breath…lol…lol…
So will your information about Iraq and the RV be intel that “looks good” or will it be information that “tastes good and is good for you”?
NO Hype, NO Rumors, just the FACTS. Sorry Charlie !
Today is Wednesday April 13th 2016. YES- and still no RV. Sorry Charlie !
So in the article below we finally get some sort of “formal” agreement between the GOI and the political blocks on the Abadi reforms. This was signed and concluded on Tuesday 4/12, yesterday. Wow! But now will they honor the agreement?
If you read the article below you get a sense of their direction as you can see all the obstacles that they are facing. I find it most importantly that they are telling us once again the needed 6 laws in the article below. No hidden agenda or secret laws they don’t want us to know about. They are coming right out and telling us – THESE LAWS ARE IMPORTANT!
Note how these same 6 laws keep popping up over and over again during these last timeframe since Abadi has been prime minister and just in recent days. Why?
Because these laws are dealing with implementing “fully” their new constitution, dealing with corruption, and getting the needed stability. They need to conclude these laws now and they are way overdue.
You will also note that in two of the articles I bring today ( I present them below) they tell us that they want to vote in parliament these six laws in a “basket of laws”. They see the urgency and timeliness of getting these laws done. This tells us they desire to mover forward and will move swiftly when they finally get over these obstacles. I believe this can happen with the new Abadi cabinet, if and when he can pull this off.

Update: 45 Day Deadline for Technocratic Gov’t
Just to summarize again where we were by Monday of this week. Then I will give you a recent update since.
Over the weekend we heard that the National Coalition demanded the cancellation of the entire minister list submitted by Abadi last Thursday. Then the arguments began. Then shortly afterwards the 3 presidents declared a meeting with all the leaders of the political blocks. From this meeting they decided to allow more time time to submit their candidates since they did not take Abadi serious in this effort from the beginning and were reluctant to take any action of his mandate for a technocratic govt.
I showed you evidence of all these actions in my last couple news letters. So the saga to move towards a technocratic govt rages on….lol…lol…
So the recent news today is they will postpone the voting on the new cabinet until today’s (Thursday) session of parliament. Seems they needed a couple more days to allow the parties to submit their candidates and sort out this mess.
Now today is Wednesday and tomorrow parliament is supposed to vote and ratify the list of candidates. It is my opinion this may not happen and so let me tell you why. So what more has transpired yesterday.
See articles below.
The Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi earlier had announced on Tuesday that he had made a list of cabinet reshuffle to the speaker of parliament and awaits ratification by the House of Representatives.
Looks like Abadi submitted another list of candidates for his cabinet on Tuesday. He included certain heads for his ministers as the requests of many of the coalitions. If you remember many of them did not originally participate in the effort and so they extended the deadline until Thursday. However it appears many of the names that were now submitted do not fall within the criteria set for a “technocratic” government. Parliament upon receiving the list then demanded they stick to the criteria and asked why Abadi still insists in a government of quotas. There was a “sit-in” last night in parliament as many of the MPs refuse to vote unless the criteria is strictly enforced.
