[8:53:09 AM] Rxxx : Higher Iraqi Taxes hit Turkish Poultry Exporters
Posted on 04 March 2015
New taxes in force since the beginning of last week mean that Turkish producers exporting into Iraq now need to pay US$290 per ton of exported chicken meat, rather than $35 previously.
[9:00:50 AM] BACKDOC: SO WITH A BUNCH OF NEW ARTICLES TODAY ABOUT IRAQ BUYING MORE GOLD AND BEING VERY EVASIVE AS TO HOW MUCH, WHY?
[9:08:08 AM] P D: Prime minister: the financial situation in Iraq is stable .. and adoption of the principle (Majasrh) to resolve the liquidity problem
[9:09:07 AM] David Soto: Is smelling re-pricing to me
[9:09:15 AM] Princess D: me too!
[9:15:47 AM] BACKDOC: WE KNOW THEY HAD 90 tons RIGHT? THEN THEY BOUGHT ANOTHER 48 TONS THEN 38 TONS. MMMM AND NOW THEY GIVE VERY EVASIVE ARTICLES ON BUYING MORE AS AN ONGOING POLICY. MMMM WHY?
[9:19:19 AM] MY LADIES: He announced the World Gold Council, in January 2015 that Iraq was ranked 37 globally and fifth Arab gold reserves, which is owned by Iraq totaled 89.5 tons of gold.
[9:20:08 AM] BACKDOC: MY POINT EXACTLY. VERY OLD NEWS
[9:20:34 AM] MY LADIES: http://www.gold.org/
[9:21:29 AM] . wxxxx: should be more like 150 tons
[9:21:40 AM] BACKDOC: SO NOW THEY HAVE PUT THEMSELVES IN A POSITION THAT THEY WE DON’T KNOW FOR SURE PAST THE 176 TONS
[9:22:27 AM] BACKDOC: AND THEY SAY THEY ARE GOING TO CONTINUE TO BUY! Why?
[9:24:31 AM] BACKDOC: WE KNOW FOR A FACT ON PREVIOUS ARTICLES ON THE 90 tons.
[9:24:56 AM] BACKDOC: THAT WAS BEFORE THEY BOUGHT THE RECENT 48 TONS
[9:26:30 AM] Hxxx: JR in your opinion is all this being done to support a rediculous opening rate of 10 to 30cents?
[9:27:05 AM] BACKDOC: WE ALL CAN SHARE OPINIONS FREELY HERE RIGHT?
[9:27:26 AM] MY LADIES: 10-30 CENTS WILL NOT WORK, PLEASE LEAVE THAT NONSENSE OUT SIDE THIS ROOM
[9:27:37 AM] MY LADIES: BACK DOC YES OF COURSE YOU CAN
[9:27:45 AM] BACKDOC: Great
[9:27:45 AM] MY LADIES: PLEASE CONTINUE
[9:28:02 AM] BACKDOC: I DEFINITELY DO NOT AGREE WITH DXXX
[9:28:19 AM] HXXX: thanks I certainly will just wanted to here you say it lol
[9:28:33 AM] MY LADIES: COMMON SENSE DOES NOT WASH WITH THOSE NUMBERS
[9:28:39 AM] P D: ML always says that will bankrupt them very quickly so that makes perfect sense to me.
[9:28:52 AM] BACKDOC: OK SO I BELIEVE OIL PRICES WILL CONTINUE TO BE UNDER PRESSURE SHORTLY AFTER IRAQ LAUNCHES
[9:29:38 AM] BACKDOC: IF SO THEY WILL NEED A MUCH HIGHER RATE THAN FOLKS THINK TO PAY BILLS. HIGHER PURCHASING POWER
[9:31:18 AM] MY LADIES: WELL THAT AND MANY OTHER REASONS
[9:31:51 AM] MY LADIES: YES WC THEIR RESERVES ARE STRONGER THAN THE ECB
[9:31:54 AM] BACKDOC: THEY NEED A LOT OF GOLD TO DEMAND A HIGHER RATE
[9:33:20 AM] BACKDOC: I THINK IF THERE IS A LOWER RATE AS SOME STATES IT WILL BE DONE BEHIND THE CURTAIN BETWEEN COUNTRIES CENTRAL BANKS BEFORE IT GETS LAUNCHED TO THE PUBLIC
[9:33:53 AM] BACKDOC: THIS WILL HAVE NO NEGATIVE EFFECT ON THE CURRENCY VALUE IN THE PUBLIC FLOAT
[9:34:13 AM] . wc: Personally I don't think it will happen even behind closed doors
[9:34:23 AM] BACKDOC: Maybe not
[9:34:52 AM] NOVA: On 3/4/15, at 8:33 AM,
> I THINK IF THERE IS A LOWER RATE AS XXX STATES IT WILL BE DONE BEHIND THE CURTAIN BETWEEN COUNTRIES CENTRAL BANKS BEFORE IT GETS LAUNCHED TO THE PUBLIC"
SIR THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE!!1
[9:35:09 AM] MY LADIES: THEY HAVE MADE SEVERAL DEPOSITS TO THEIR SDR ACCOUNTS. AND THERE IS NO CURTAIN
[9:35:29 AM] BACKDOC: THANK YOU NOVA
[9:36:01 AM] MY LADIES: WHEN THE BANKING SYSTEM GOES LIVE IT GOES EVERY WHERE, THERE CAN BE NO PRICE FOR THIS HERE AND PRICE FOR THAT THERE, IT JUST DOESN'T WORK
[9:37:47 AM] BACKDOC: I CANT SEE THEM COMING OUT WITH A RIDICULOUS RATE WHICH WOULD DESTROY THE CURRENCY VALUE AFTER PULLING THE MAJORITY OUT
[9:38:32 AM] MY LADIES: RIGHT BUT THERE IS A VARIETY OF REASONS WHY THEY CAN NOT COME LOWER AND THE MAIN ONE IS THE SDR VALUATIONS
[9:39:29 AM] MY LADIES: I THINK PEOPLE GET CONFUSED WITH WHERE THIS DINAR WILL PEG AND THEY DON'T GET IT AT ALL
[9:39:46 AM] BACKDOC: THE RATE MUST BE HIGH
[9:39:54 AM] MY LADIES: THERE IS A SPECIFIC FORMULA TO THE SDR PRICING
[9:40:27 AM] BACKDOC: WHY WOULD THEY PULL OUT THAT MUCH CURRENCY ONLY TO INJECT A BUNCH AT .10 ?CRAZY
[9:40:27 AM] MY LADIES: AND THEY KNOW FULL WELL WHAT THAT MODEL IS THIS IS WHY THEY ARE MAKING THE APPROPRIATE DEPOSITS TO THEIR ACCOUNT
[9:40:51 AM] NOVA: GOOD MORNING DOC,
I LOVE YOUR EXCITEMENT BECAUSE THERE IS MUCH TO BE EXPECTED ABOUT.
BUT YOU NEED TO HELP ME ON YOUR GOLD ?. THE EXCHANGE RATE FOR THE IQD IS NOT A MOVING TARGET. IT HAS BEEN SET FOR QUITE A LONG TIME. SO I DONT KNOW WHAT YOUR ASKING ME.
IF ANYTHING AND IF THE TRANSLATION IS RIGHT, THE CBI USED THE WORD "BASKET" TODAY!!! AND THAT IS EXCITING!!!!
[9:41:34 AM] BACKDOC: I AGREE
[9:42:03 AM] BACKDOC: I BELIEVE THE RATE WILL BE HIGHER THAN MOST THINK
[9:42:44 AM] . wc: I think I see it DoC, even if I don't understand it fully
[9:43:46 AM] BACKDOC: I THINK IRAQ HAS TRIED TO BE VERY EVASIVE ON THE GOLD AMOUNTS THEY NOW HAVE NOVA
[9:44:41 AM] BACKDOC: IF OIL DROPS OR JUST STAYS LOW IRAQ WILL NEED A HIGHER RATE
[9:45:44 AM] NOVA: I AGREE BUT EVERY CENTRAL BANK IS DOING THIS. IRAQS OIL IS FAR MORE VALUABLE THEN ANY AMOUNT OF GOLD THEY DO OR DO NOT TELL US ABOUT!!
[9:46:24 AM] MY LADIES: OK SO IT APPEARS THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT THE RESERVE BASKET AND GOLD
[9:46:28 AM] P D: I agree with you Doc that the asset backing of different resources is correct thinking too. It protects them from any economic disasters long term.
[9:49:58 AM | Edited 9:50:30 AM] NOVA: OIL EXPORTS STAYING HIGH AND NOTE COUNT STAYING LOW IS WHAT DEMANDS THE EXCHANGE RATE EVERYONE WANTS.
[10:17:02 AM] . wc: OK, the heavy weights are gone. I don't know what everybody is really thinking or looking. I don't like the go to the weeds because you could be in small field and would be able to see the edges which are only feet away. A long time ago the IMF and others talked about a new class of currency about to launch and the fiat currencies had better prepare for the that day or be blown out of the water. These currencies were going to be asset backed unlike today's fiat currencies. Now here with ML and Nova they talk to the SDR of the IMF. I as I read those articles was drawn back to a day like when the dollar was asset backed by gold. You could turn in your dollars and receive gold in payment. That was an asset backed currency. Now if those articles are coming to truth, then somebody is going to introduce a true asset backed (basket) currency. This made sense as to why new exchange systems would be needed. Fiat VS Asset currencies, a big change. I wait to see what the verdict is as I think it has to do with Iraq, Aus, Canada, and some other countries. But as always clearly stated, What do I know? Nothing!
[10:18:27 AM] MY LADIES: WELL WC THIS TIME YOUR DEAD ON TARGET, VERY NICELY PUT TOGETHER.
[10:20:56 AM] BaNDiTo_RoX: All major global banks now meet Basel III requirements
[10:24:20 AM] MY LADIES: WE TOLD YOU FOLKS THAT ALL WOULD BE DONE BY MARCH 2ND, JANET YELLEN ADDRESSED CONGRESS LAST THURSDAY AND FRIDAY AND TODAY WE SEE THIS VERY GOOD JOB THINGS ARE COMING TOGETHER NICELY
WE HAVE SOME GOOD NEWS FROM ARABIYA THIS MORNING. THE NEWS THIS MORNING WAS FULL OF IRAQI PROGRESS. THEY ARE TALKING ALL ABOUT THIS PROGRESS IN THE MIDDLE EAST EVERYWHERE, ON EVERY CHANNEL.
A FEW DAYS AGO ABADI TOLD THE UNITED COALITION IN A DIPLOMATIC WAY TO GO KICK ROCKS. HE TOLD THEM HE WOULD MANAGE HIS OWN COUNTRY AND THEY WERE BETTER SERVED IN SYRIA. THIS CAME AFTER SEVERAL PHOTOS OF THE USA DROPPING AID TO THE ISIS FIGHTERS.
Abadi Office: non-participation of the international coalition for fear of friendly fire operations on our [audio]
Tuesday 0.03 March / March 2015 18:35
NOW YOU GET THE REAL SCOOP FROM NEWS CHANNELS OVER THERE THAN YOU EVER WOULD GET FROM HERE. THE BUZZ IS THAT IN THE LAST 4 DAYS IRAQ HAS TAKEN BACK 98 VILLAGES FROM ISIS. 98!!!! THEY ARE DOING THIS WITH THE HELP OF THE IRANIAN ROYAL GUARD AND HEZBOLLAH FIGHTERS FROM LEBANON.
LEBANON HAS REPORTED THEY DISPATCHED TROOPS TO IRAQ AND WITH THE IRAQI MILITARY AND ROYAL GUARD THEY HAVE BEEN CLEANSING THE COUNTRY OF DAASH.
ABADI SAID LAST NIGHT IN AN INTERVIEW LIVE THAT HE WILL CONTINUE THE MOVE AGAINST ISIS AND BELIEVES AT THIS RATE HE WILL HAVE ISIS GONE IN A MATTER OF DAYS. HE ALSO SAID THAT ALL THOSE OPPOSING HIS WAYS OF HANDLING HIS COUNTRY COULD FEEL FREE TO MAKE ASSASSINATION ATTEMPTS AGAINST HIM BECAUSE HE WILL NOT STOP NOW.
HE SAID THE CALCULATIONS OF THE USA AND THE COALITION TO BE MONTHS BEFORE THEIR DONE IS INACCURATE AND HE IS GOING TO PROCEED WITH OUT THE HELP OF THE COALITION.
HE ALSO SPOKE ABOUT THE STRENGTH OF IRAQ AND SAID THEY WILL RISE TO THE STRENGTH THEY WERE MANY YEARS AGO IN JUST A FEW MORE COMING DAYS.
NOW FOLKS LETS ADD THIS TO THE LAST ARTICLE WE SAW LAST NIGHT WHERE THE CBI SAYS THE DINAR WILL RISE TO STRENGTH IN THE COMING DAYS AND I THINK WE ARE EVER CLOSER TO THIS HAPPENING. HERE IS THE ARTICLE ABOUT THE DINAR LINK
WE HAVE MANY THINGS TO STAY POSITIVE WITH RIGHT NOW, AND THE MORALE IN THE MIDDLE EAST IS WONDERFUL, ALL EYES ARE ON IRAQ AND FOR THE FIRST TIME IN YEARS THEY ARE TAKING BACK WHAT IS THEIRS AND IT IS SO WONDERFUL TO WATCH.
SO THAT’S OUR GOOD NEWS FROM THE MIDDLE EAST FOR YOU FOLKS TODAY AND LETS KEEP TRYING TO FOLLOW ALONG.

[11:04:12 AM] A W: In the past we have been reminded by Drs. Shabibi and Saleh that their intent was to have their currency return to greatness, strength, prominence. Now the Prime Minister of Iraq is stating that they will do the same.
[11:05:48 AM] MY LADIES: Axxx JUST TO BE CLEAR HE DID NOT SAY CURRENCY, ABADI WAS TALKING ABOUT THE STRENGTH OF THE COUNTRY
CBI WAS TALKING ABOUT THE CURRENCY.
[11:07:46 AM] . wc: ML, how do countries measure their strength? Currency!
[11:08:26 AM | Edited 11:08:51 AM] A W: Mary,.............thank you and I understand that.................I do understand that in the ME strength of a country is also tied to their currency.
[11:08:29 AM] MY LADIES: I UNDERSTAND WC BUT I JUST IT TO BE CLEAR THAT THE MAN DID NOT SAY THOSE WORDS FROM HIS MOUTH LAST NIGHT!!!!!
[11:09:45 AM] MY LADIES: I KNOW GUYS I JUST DON’T WANT IT SAID IN DINAR LAND THAT ML SAW AND INTERVIEW WITH ABADI AND HE SAID THE CURRENCY IS RISING...BLA BLA BLA...

[11:14:43 AM] DXX S: Show the money
[11:53:17 AM] P D: They did the budget, passed laws etc. Now what can be holding up the repricing if everything is operational?
[11:59:01 AM] MY LADIES: PD I DON'T THINK ANYTHING IS HOLDING ANYTHING UP. THIS IS THE NORMAL PROGRESSION OF THINGS
[12:00:53 PM] Princess D: ahh that sounds great Mary. Thought there was one or two more unknowns.
[12:01:07 PM] MY LADIES: LOOK AT IT LIKE THIS WE ALWAYS SAY OK THEY'RE DONE, THEN A DAY OR 2 LATER THEY DO SOMETHING REMARKABLE AND WE REALIZE OOOPS I GUESS THAT WAS AN IMPORTANT STEP.
SOOO THEY ARE JUST PROGRESSING AT A GOOD PACE AND SETTING EVERYTHING. NOW BEHIND THE SCENES STUFF, WELL WE CAN LEAVE THAT TALK FOR 007 AND HIS SHOE PHONE...
THEY HAVE BEEN TOTALLY TRANSPARENT WE NEED TO ONLY KNOW WHERE TO LOOK
[12:05:15 PM MY LADIES: THIS IS A COUNTRY REBUILDING ITSELF FROM DUST, THIS IS A CURRENCY COMING OUT WITH SOME HEAVY RESPONSIBILITY, THIS JOURNEY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH JAMES BOND,
NO COPS AND ROBBERS, NO MYSTERY, NO WHITE HATS AND BLACK HATS, NO CATS AND DOGS, ALL THAT NOISE IS USED IN DINAR LAND TO KEEP THE SHEEP INTERESTED.
WE ARE NOT SHEEP, AND WE KNOW HOW THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY AND WORLD OF BANKING WORKS
SO DON'T GET HUNG UP ON THE MYSTERY, STICK TO THE FACTS, THINGS ARE MOVING VERY NICELY IN TWO OCCASIONS THE GOI AND THE CBI HAVE TOLD US IN THE COMING DAYS IRAQ WILL RISE.
LET’S STICK TO THE INTELLIGENCE WE HAVE AND KEEP THE SHEEP OUT IN THE PASTURE.
[1:23:53 PM] NOVA: I AM SORRY BUT I JUST CAN NOT TAKE IT ANYMORE!!!
ML & I Work so hard.. ML Harder Then Me To Bring You Facts!!!! Why Do You Do This Everyday? I will not expect an answer of " well I just don't understand like you all do" !!
I AM TELLING YOU RIGHT NOW THE HCL IS DONE BECAUSE THE PAYMENTS FOR IT ARE IN THE BUDGET!!!!
AND IF YOU ARE NEEDING Maliki TO BE GONE THEN YOU HAVE A LONG LONG LONG LONG LONG .......... I Think You Understand, HE IS NOT GOING ANYWHERE!!!!!
STOP LOOKING AT THIS FROM THE GLASS IS HALF EMPTY AND LOOK AT IT FROM THE VIEW FROM THE GLASS IS ALMOST OVER FLOWING BECAUSE IT IS!!!!
WHY BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT WE SEE FROM A "Fact" VIEW!!!
Everything Else Is Just NOISE!!!
[1:25:54 PM] A W: Extremely well put...........NOVA!!!!
[1:28:23 PM] J G: That was a "wowwer", Nova....thanks......you don't post a lot very often since I have been in this chat room but when you do "you really do it"
[1:28:41 PM] EXXX: Very well said Nova- Maliki being gone is as bad as O-Bush-and Clinton being locked up to kick this off
[1:29:11 PM] P D: Thats what I believed too that we have seen the completion of everything. So it should be on its way in days according to the article I posted yesterday. We are ready to rock 'n roll.
[1:30:50 PM] E Tx.: Thank you Nova ...I believe there is way to much OUTSIDE influence (confusion)
[1:30:50 PM] P D: Very true on your MB post Dale, I have seen the video where he admitted it on ABC news interview.
[1:32:42 PM] MY LADIES: THESE ARE THE COPS AND ROBBERS STORIES THAT HAVE BEEN DRILLED INTO THE HEADS OF THESE PEOPLE FOR AGES.
WHEN YOU HAVE NOTHING TO SAY JUST MAKE SOMETHING UP....NONSENSE
MALIKI HAS A JOB TO DO AND HE WILL DO IT.
HCL IS FINISHED AND IN THE BUDGET WE SHOWED IT TO EVERYONE
THE BUDGET IS PUBLISHED IN THE GAZETTE AND ANYONE WHO SAYS DIFFERENTLY NEEDS A BETTER EDUCATION. THERE ARE 50 PAGES PUBLISHED INCLUDING GRAPHS AND CHARTS.
I THINK WE NEED TO DO A REFRESHER PHONE CALL, LETS DO IT TODAY LATER THIS AFTERNOON. WHAT SAY YOU NOVA?
Great idea for a call, Mary. Thank you.
[1:51:25 PM] J G: I have been all over dinarland for over six years and this is the first time that I am in a place that I can actually ask questions about things that I am curious about and actually get answers....that is a compliment to you, ML and to you , Nova.....so here I go.....I don't know what you guys know about Maliki because I have not been around here long enough to know back information from the two of you about Maliki.........Nova just said he is not going anywhere.....ML, you just said he has a job to do and he will do it.....I don't know what that means...I have been wondering why in the world he was given a VP posiiton in the first place and why he is still in the palace and am wondering if he will ever be arrested and prosecuted for his crimes.....there have neve been any answers to any of my questions....once all of this is over is he going to be taken care of?....just a bit knowledge of your thoughts would be great ....wish I could have been around long ago and maybe I would know some of this stuff...not just from articles that say he will be arrested but nothing is ever done to him.....sorry for being so long winded................thanks guys...
[2:14:13 PM NOVA: Sxxxx May I Ask What Crimes? Any More Or Less Then Any Other World Leader? Maliki IS ONE OF THE WEALTHIEST MEN IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW EVEN MORE IN A FEW DAYS!!!
MY LADIES: FOR HEAVENS SAKE MALIKI IS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO SOME OF THE OTHER TYRANTS THAT HAVE BEEN PUT IN POWER OVER THE AGES.
DINARLAND NEEDS A SCAPE GOAT, AND MALIKI FITS THE BILL.
HOW MYSTERIOUS AND INTRIGUING IT IS TO READ ABOUT A VILLIAN..WOW!! IN THE END WHAT THE PEOPLE OVER HERE THINK HAS LITTLE BEARING ON THE CULTURE OR THE PEOPLKE OVER THERE.
ARE YOU NOT FAMILIAR WITH POLITICAL POSTURING?? WHEN YOU READ THINGS YOU MUST ASK YOURSELF WHO IS THE AUTHOR?
LOOK AT THE END OF THE DAY MALIKI STEPPED DOWN AND BEGAN WORKING WITH THE COUNTRY, HE CAN NOT BE SO TERRIBLE AWFUL IF HIS OWN PEOPLE VOTED FOR HIM.
HELL , THERE ARE MANY MANY PEOPLE IN IRAQ THAT STILL LAMENT FOR SADDAM. THEY THINK HE JUST WAS THE CATS MEOW.
WHEN WE GET TO IT IT THE PEOPLE OF DINAR LAND ONLY THAT ARE OUTRAGED AND 97% INCLUDING YOURSELF JUST FOLLOW ALONG AND HAVE NO IDEA OF WHY?
THIS IS ALL POLITICS AND I ASSURE YOU IF HE WAS MEANT TO BE ANY WHERE ELSE HIS PEOPLE WOULD SEE TO IT.
HE WAS MEETING TODAY WITH SUNNI LEADERS, UNITING EVERYONE BUT YET THE OTHER DAY THERE WAS AN ARTICLE POLITICALLY DRIVEN SAYING THE SUNNI WERE CALLING FOR HIS ARREST.
WHAT IS GOING ON WITH MALIKI IS NOT OUR CONCERN. AND EVERYONE IN DINAR LAND NEEDS TO STOP PLAYING FOLLOW THE LEADER INTO THE DARK SHADOW OF MYSTERY.
TB: And as far as Maliki goes, they say keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Who knows or cares about him he's an elected official and he's there for a reason. Once we're looking in the rearview mirror of this event does it really matter to any of us?
