Iko Ward: If Forex remains at 1166 and sets that way for the weekend I'd say they are aligning with the CBI so a new rate can be set Sunday Night.
Iko Ward : I also believe we will RV before Sunday night. If we have not RV'd by Monday 11/30, when the IMF and the Chinese are set to announce China's inclusion as an official reserve currency, we will see an Asian revolt and unilateral moves by Russia and China and probably a few others who are keeping a low profile to force the Dinar RV. Enough is enough. The arrogance of the West must be called ti the carpet.
Rock1941: IKO only problem the west has always been able to kick the can down the road, hope there are constraints this time!!
Iko Ward: Follow The Yellow BRICS Road.
As the wizard in the great balloon floats away Dorothy yells "Come back, come back" and the Wizard says, "I can't, I don't know how it works!"
But Glenda knows and tells us we've always known. Just click your heels three times and say "There's no place like home (reality, asset backed currency), there's no place like home."
The Wizard of OZ was written by L. Frank Baum as an allegory for fiat vs. asset backed currency. Fascinating read with all we know now.
You guys have fun, I've stated what I know and from intel I'm exposed to. Guess we'll just have ti wait and see. bbl
Airam: Doing great with that info from IKO .....praying and hoping this is it!!!
IdahoUSA: DEEMONEY BANK STORY POSTED IN CHAT 11-27-15 9:03 AM PST
DEEMONEY IN CHAT: 11-27-15 9:03 AM PST (and we thank DeeMoney for this wonderful positive post)
I thought I'd I just received a call back from a WM from one of the top banks. I told him that I was expecting to exchange my currency soon. He said let's meet next week. He scheduled me for Wednesday because Monday and Tuesday he's completely booked. Ten minutes later he called back and moved me to Tuesday.
I'm so serious and excited! He's meeting me in a location close to my house
He didn't have time to get a cancellation. He called back quickly and said, make sure I had I'd so he can set up accounts for me. He clearly knows what's happening. He was talking to me let I was a wealthy woman already. He's driving almost an hr to meet me
Danblessed- No. I kept calling the other day and called me back. I wanted to just talk about accounts. He called back this morning and after I said I have currency I expected to exchange, he wanted to meet
LADYB223 WROTE: deemoney, Please be careful. If you give your currency to him, it's gone forever. Make sure he validates it in your prescence and gives you a bank deposit slip. Bruce said the Delarue machines at the exchange centers will be hooked up to a laptop computer.... and the computer will copy the serial numbers off each bill. That way you have proof of what you give the bank.
I have talked to managers and pb at this bank before in the past, but they all acted confused. This was different. We are meeting at the main location here. On the top floor where private banking is done. He works out of a smaller office further away. I feel safe
I did offer to got to his office but he didn't want me to make the drive. That's the kinda service we have to get use to. I wasn't going to say anything but we're all in this together and I hope I encouraged someone today.
You're welcome... Before I spoke with this WM, I checked out his profile. He's been with this bank for years managing large portfolio's. I wish everyone the best. Thanks for the well wishes
DEEMONEY RESPONDING TO Adept1- I love your attitude!! Last night on OM a lady said a higher up person at a big 4 bank also said by Monday. Another lady's WM manager cancelled his vacation and her appointment is on Monday and she was told to bring all the currency she has. And with my call this morning, I believe this is it! Have a great day everyone!
Greatly Blessed: Coming of Age: China’s Yuan To Join SDR Basket As IMF Reserve Currency
Christine Lagarde and the IMF Executive Board recently announced their intention to include the Chinese renminbi (RMB) in the Special Drawing Rights’ (SDR) valuation formula. This would bring the Chinese currency into an exclusive group – alongside the US dollar, the euro, the British pound and the Japanese yen - of 5 global currencies that make up the IMF’s own reserve currency.
Greatly blessed: Next Sunday .. grant distribution (100) thousand dinars for retired workers with salaries
BAGHDAD / JD / .. The Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs and the distribution of the grant (100) thousand dinars, with monthly salaries for the months (November and December) on Sunday. A spokesman for the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs Ammar Menem in a written statement / dinars / received a copy of it: that the ministry will be distributed workers grant retirees amounting to one hundred thousand dinars a month and by three hundred thousand dinars, as calculated monthly grant, starting from 01/10/2015,
with their pensions for the months of (November and December) on Sunday, adding that this grant came at the calendar reality of living for workers, the fact that the average pension for a worker up to 130 to 200 000 dinars, and this is not commensurate with the living conditions and the needs of this category, which are classified into (aging, disability and back).
He added that the Council of Ministers approved the ministry's request to grant retired workers grant is based on Article 3 of the Constitution to support the elderly in retirement and disease in order to support the private sector and activating the labor market until the issuance of the law of retirement and social security for workers who would re-edit worker's wage rate which built upon the pension even be close to the pension to the government sector.
He explained that this decision is the message from the government to support the private sector and to guide workers and citizens to the private sector, pointing out that this grant was previously found in the budgets of 2012 and 2013, but has stalled due to lack of budget in 2014 as well as the financial crisis in 2015 as the cause of suffering to the category of workers retirees, especially since the Department of pension and social security for workers fall under the self-financing departments. / End / 22 /
Greatly Blessed: Former HSBC Switzerland Employee Hervé Faciani Handed Five-Year Jail Term
Swiss court finds that Falciani tried to offer stolen data about HSBC’s clients
By JOHN LETZING Nov. 27, 2015
ZURICH— Hervé Falciani, a former employee at the Swiss branch of HSBC Holdings PLC who widely dispersed once-secret data about the bank’s clients, was handed a five-year prison sentence in a federal criminal court in Switzerland Friday.
Mr. Falciani, who worked for HSBC in Geneva, was convicted of aggravated industrial espionage. The court found that he had sought to offer stolen data about HSBC’s clients to a handful of banks in Lebanon.
In addition, the court found that Mr. Falciani tried to provide the data to France’s National Division of Financial Investigations, Germany’s Federal Intelligence Service, and Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs in the U.K.
Mr. Falciani’s data caused a stir in February, when it was used by several media outlets to publish a series of stories about how HSBC allegedly helped high-profile clients use their Swiss accounts to avoid paying taxes. The bank said at that time that the Swiss business has been “overhauled.”
A spokeswoman for Switzerland’s State Secretariat for International Financial Matters said recently that the country anticipates a flood of new requests for assistance from foreign tax authorities tracking down information about Swiss bank accounts, based on Mr. Falciani’s data.
Mr. Falciani, a 43-year-old former computer analyst at HSBC, didn’t attend his trial in Switzerland, which he fled in late 2008 after he was questioned by Swiss police. Marc Henzelin, an attorney representing Mr. Falciani, said he hasn’t had a chance to read the court’s decision. But he said that based on his understanding of the ruling, Mr. Falciani is likely to appeal.
In a statement, HSBC said it welcomes the Swiss court’s decision. “This was not a victimless crime,” the bank said.
In 2012, Mr. Falciani was detained in Barcelona on an international arrest warrant. He was held in detention for a few months, before a Spanish court ruled in 2013 against his extradition to Switzerland.
In December last year, Switzerland’s Office of the Attorney General charged Mr. Falciani with pilfering HSBC’s client data between 2006 and 2008, with the intention of “cashing in,” according to a statement.
The Attorney General’s office said at the time that Mr. Falciani had fled Switzerland the night before he was due for further questioning by the authorities.
On the eve of his trial late last month, Mr. Falciani held a news conference in France, near the Switzerland border, where he said he is continuing to work with authorities and investigators interested in his data.
