[size=30]MilitiaMan and KTFA Members Thursday PM Articles with links and comments 2-20-2020 "Go Time"[/size]
KTFA:
(Post 194) Samson:   The Iraqi Private Banking Association concludes the course "Developing the Skills of Banking Branch Managers"   LINK
Samson:  The central bank organizes a lecture in Mosul on financial inclusion https://cbi.iq/news/view/1428
MilitiaMan:  Timing of these articles and what Frank brought us from WS files should have everyone smiling..
"Regular meetings now between CBI Board, IMF, AMF and UST."~Frank26 
Militiaman:  For them to be having meetings with those four should assure us that this is coming together so very well and orchestrated to be in synchronization with the new PM and his fresh independent cabinet even with the ISX to down to bank tellers.
The four Global Enities would be the ones to give the guidance to the CBs, Private Banks and then down to the bank managers, as they will need to now what to teach the tellers. They'll need to know what to tell the citizens about the value and the longevity of the coexistence of the varied currencies they will hold for what ever period of time they decide. That is effectively end game for us when that happens. imo
The call suggested that the Kurds will be involved in the training. Take note that the above Mosul training was done days ago.. imo... They speak of training at a very high level of internationalism. The CBI Statistics website has the stats on many things that facilitate money movement globally. They have the training parameters in place and or done by now through the managerial levels.. Next step is the tellers.. Most likely that is or will be down to the last few hours and or last minutes.. imo ~ MM

"The Central Bank of Iraq - the Erbil branch, organized a dialogue seminar on February 13, 2020 for the purpose of clarifying the relationship between transparency and disclosure and the commitment of private banks to the principle of transparency in accordance with the laws and instructions of the Central Bank of Iraq and international standards and explain the mechanisms for preparing cash transfer programs and provide the necessary guarantees and the mechanism of cash withdrawal and a set of other recommendations."
Post #200 Don961 "Today we urgently need to start a new stage that works to adopt the term "quick action"
 SNIPPET: Reaching our development goals is not difficult, but we need serious directions that support investments and investors and attract them with their advanced technology and capital to be employed in serving the economy of the country and the world, and here our slogan must be "the Rapid procedure. "
"Rapid procedures" is  a slogan they use. Well that sounds like they are moving right along and will be urgently addressing these procedures in a new stage. Well the new stage imo will include a new rate and a new median of exchange that will coexist for some time to come. ~ MM
MM POST #219 SAMSON said (Post #78 )
https://cbi.iq/news/view/1427
Confirmation of closing of the accounts of the merging brokerage firms opened with the approved banks.
The merging of companies, is a good thing in many cases. Merging Brokerage Firms that buy and sell foreign currencies. Be sure, that when there is a reason to merge there is value generated once completed, as merging tends to lead to growth... There will be demand for the IQD when they reinstate the IQD internationally imo. This appears to support that notion. The use of the words Brokerage Firms has me thinking growth in "Shares and or Currencies".. As we have learned there will be a synchronized effort with the ISX/NASDQ/FX/ATMs....then the NSCN's and fils.. imo ~ MM

BROUGHT FORWARD
https://cbi.iq/news/view/1427
Confirmation of closing of the accounts of the merging
brokerage firms opened with the approved banks

18th February, 2020
To / All Approved Banks ( Account Closure )
We confirm what was stated in our numbered number (9/5/333) dated 5/8/2019 and
the attached requirements for granting the license to merging exchange companies for
the two categories (A, B), paragraph (9) of it, including ( closing all accounts of
brokerage firms buying and selling merged foreign currencies). Open at authorized banks
with the exception of ( parent company ) accounts.

MilitiaMan:  Then we see this below as well. They are seriously speaking of value. Well if they are going to get linked with the International Community and even with the NASAQ, the values of these companies will need to be transparent and have real value.. They NASDAQ has rules and they need to be followed, just as there are rules for Market Makers and the pricing of the shares. Same would hold true with the Forex, I suspect too. This is a very good sign.. ~ MM
Disclosure ... enhances the value of financial institutions locally and internationally
Tuesday, February 18, 2020
Baghdad / Al-Sabah
The Executive Director of the Iraq Stock Exchange, Taha Ahmed Abdel Salam, stressed the need to disclose in the financial institutions, for his role in enhancing its value locally and internationally, and its capabilities and performance improvement and reach its service or restrictive goals that are in all circumstances to serve the national economy.
Abdel Salam said: "Disclosure in economic institutions takes many forms and its follow-up is among the duties of the regulatory institution and society alike."
The real value
Abdul-Salam added, "We have previously demonstrated the need to pay attention to the market value of shares and compare them with the real value and the equivalent calculated in accordance with the disclosure criteria, and more importantly, interest in disseminating and clarifying these values in the performance contexts of the joint stock company, which has become known internationally and Arably to investor information or investor relations IR."
In the context of his responsibility and interest in the banking performance of Iraqi banks and their relationship with shareholders and investors, the Central Bank requested the registered Iraqi banks, whose shares are traded in the Iraq Stock Exchange, to pay attention to the bank's website through allocating an electronic window for investor relations (IR) on the bank’s website through which the publication Annual and quarterly reports, as well as publishing financial data analysis and comparisons with previous periods, as well as significant and influential contributions, and publishing analysis of performance and activity indicators and decisions of public body meetings And the number of shares traded and their market value.
Disclosure mechanisms
And that "this procedure is considered an evolution in the Disclosure Mechanism," as most banks implement the above paragraphs and publish them in their annual report, which appears shortly before the meeting - and it is almost a historical financial report - at a time when the importance of disclosing the above paragraphs appears within a system. An electronic window in the bank is a guide to transparency and interest in the bank’s shareholders to inform them of performance indicators, especially when combined with trading indicators in the stock market and a catalyst to attract investors.
Publish the data
Abdel Salam stressed that "the purpose of publishing the above data and information is a start to the financial and informational disclosure required by the participating banking companies, especially when demanding the publication of an analysis of the relationship and impact of financial variables among them and the relationship of the stock return and the earnings per share with the market value. Which gives a true picture of the value of the stock in light of Financial indicators".
Stop trading
Abd al-Salam continued, "It remains to determine that violating this mechanism should not lead to stopping trading in the company's shares or imposing fines on the company itself, but rather resorting to more effective means of holding accountable the negligent," explaining, "the importance of this mechanism extends in disclosing the way to sites that It promotes unlicensed investment and is not based on legal approvals by the sectoral authority or by the Capital Market Authority in Iraq, by deluding society with unrealistic investment opportunities in global stock exchanges that adopt dealing without the lowest disclosure criteria.
MilitiaMan:  My view is they are fully disclosing to the world they are finishing the reforms and in very deliberate fashion. Yet they are using the PM cabinet as a smoke screen. 
By them publishing that the cabinet is completed, yet, they are stalling the vote in parliament, suggests they are staggering the date of the vote time frames in the news for a purpose.. They suggested it was for yesterday, then today, now possibly Sunday, Monday and or even Tuesday next.. Imo ~ MM

Samson:  (post 87) Rafidain Bank announces the opening of documentary credits to ministries, traders and private sector companies   LINK
Samson:  Al-Rafidain announces the opening of documentary credits for ministries, traders and private sector companies   LINK
MilitiaMan:  As noted in post 194 (see above) today, about the country being ready to go international (or is now already), this supports that opinion quite well. lol All the global entities that were mentioned in #194 has me thinking that this is telling the Global entities that they have the ability to get guaranteed payments and settlements in a manner that is acceptable to both buyer and seller in at an international level.
They have this in place through a government agency of Al-Rafidain Bank!! All the pieces of the puzzle are now on the table and apparently in place! Go time.. Or What? Imo
"The documentary credit is one of the most secure payment methods in international trade, offering the exporter a conditional payment guarantee from the importer's bank. Documentary credits usually require the presentation of certain documents, which must be complied with before payment can take place."

KTFA Monday Night CC 1-7-19 contracts, at 1 to 1 to the USd - Thu 17 Jan 2019, 10:30 am

[size=26][size=24]KTFA Monday Night CC 1-7-19-  [/size]

Go to Comments [/size]
 
[size=18]Part 2:

Frank26:  We continue with our study of the Iraqi Dinar. All of this is in my opinion. And we now incorporate taxes and tariffs which has been a hot topic lately with the Government of Iraq. And taxes and tariffs are definitely a part of  the Government of Iraq’s obligations to the IMF. 
 
Let me ask you a question: which would you rather see right now? The lifting of the 3 zeros electronically? Or the application of the taxes and tariffs?

I like what I am reporting to you tonight IMO. Because after the RI the Ts & Ts will adjust themselves. And by the way, the taxes and tariffs that are hot right now that we have presented to you in articles, those have been in existence for many years  in Iraq  So don’t get confused.
 
These taxes and tariffs are additional for the imports and the exports but, these T’s and T’s have now been assigned international code numbers. OK? I mean in just those 30-40 seconds of what I just told you there is a lot of power.
....



I encourage you if you want to learn more, then Google “Tariff Tables of Iraq”. And note it is not the assigning of the taxes and tariffs that is an issue because they have tax code numbers now. It is thecollection of these taxes that is difficult because the citizens do not have the true purchasing power in their currency at a Program Rate to afford these taxes. OK?
 
What we have presented to you tonight is an Int’l bridge with Iraqi private banks and banks around the world in order to bridge Iraq to the global international world.
d
Because internationally, these contracts, at 1 to 1 to the USd have accomplished the NEER  Let me repeat that. This bridge is to bring Iraq’s private banks into the global international world because internationally these contracts internationally at 1 to 1 with the American dollar have accomplished the NEER (Nominal Effective Exchange Rate) of Iraq. And you know what that is because we have studied it many times.


They have bridged the REER (The real effective exchange rate) of the IQD into the global markets!!!

 
So IMO on the 30th of Dec of last year when they electronically lifted the 3 zeros before the ending of 2018 it has not yet been done internationally…yet! But the bridge, and the Chamber of Commerce and all the evidence we’ve given you already…that bridge is up!  They have to just cross it now. 
 
These contracts of my friend in the form of the IQD came first. They were presented inside Iraq to businesses to offer jobs to the citizens electronically. Isn’t that brilliant! They have not lifted the three zeros physically. They have lifted them electronically!!!
 
Now they simply need to tell the rest of the world…the rest of the investing world that wants to come into Iraq and rebuild them that they did so! And,... to physically give the citizens of Iraq what we call the 2ndarticle containing the pictures of the new small category notes and the fils along with the instructions of where to get these new small category notes and fils, the information of their new currency rate, the information of the currency reform and the ATM instructions along with more information to the citizens. It must not fail in the hands of the citizens! 

Because the bridge of the IQD to leave Iraq internationally has been built and tested and it is sitting there waiting to be announced!
 
What did Trump and Mahdi talk about in the last week of December of 2018? Well maybe they talked about the Iraqi budget at 1 to 1. Maybe they talked about a new government. And by the way what new government? I mean it’s there but it has not been officially announced. Just like Article VIII. It’s there but its not officially announced.
 
IMO when Trump comes to visit it’s always about the benjamins. It’s always about the C-note always about money. Whatever else did he talk about with Mahdi and whoever else was in that meeting with him just before year’s end. What do you think!


​Yes Trump surprised the world. He didn’t surprise you. You’re a student with us aren’t you! But Trump took the initiative to go directly to see Mahdi in person before year’s end. And then on the 30th electronically the three zeros were lifted on those contracts with my friend’s firm. Soon I will tell you about other firms.
 
Yes indeed at the Kuwait conference in February of 2018 Allak promised to protect the investors’ money, freedom of their currency. We now have just that! We have freedom of capital in Iraq that is soon to be shown with international standards of Article VIII! Then from these contracts at a 1 to 1 rate paid in IQD with permission to leave Iraq’s borders   and to be safely deposited in a foreign bank outside of Iraq with no restrictions on their currency, on their funds, with their money protected with no restrictions of movement internationally with no fear of having someone steal it in the CBI or GOI . With no fear of losing their profit!!!
 
Ladies and gentlemen the private banks of the CBI in Iraq are soon to be born in the United States of America! I pray to God you heard what I just said! We are walking into a new phase. Pay close attention. There are banks as you already know because of what we’ve mentioned tonight in the United States and some around the world that are internationally mirrored with Int’l standards with the private banks of Iraq. The USA as you saw the article has many banks that are mirrored internationally with the private banks of Iraq.
 
Ladies and gentlemen, I now wish to tell you the CBI (Central bank of Iraq) is going to have satellites of their private banks in the USA.  

I know that in his 8 years of Obama he made it impossible for you to deposit any foreign currency in an American bank. He made it a law. OK. No problem so here’s what we are going to do. We are going to go ahead and only allow you, American citizens, to deposit American dollars in our American Banks.
 
So when they cross that bridge (they are Article VIII) you know when that Article VIII bridge  becomes solid then, what you do American banks, .you accept those wire transfers from private banks in Iraq and you convert those dinars into American dollars at whatever rate is at that moment. You will never see a rate of 1 to 1 !!!
 
Ladies and gentlemen, the CBI right now has one bank that is ready to go! You will have the option to go into an American Bank and deposit and wire transfer your dinars from Iraq and have them sent to an American bank and have them converted into American dollars. And thank you for being international. It’s about time!!!
 
But, what if I don’t want to convert my Iraqi dinars into USD’s. Not right now! What’s the rate?  $2.20 something? I’d  rather wait. What are you going to do with your dinars? Well I understand that there are now satellite banks of the CBI on American territory. Well I’ll just go into one of those banks and deposit my Iraqi dinars in your satellite bank here that represents the CBI. Can I leave them as IQD’s? Yea. Well thank you! And when I want to take them out I can take them out? Of course! And then I’ll put them in my American bank and they will be converted at what ever rate exists at that time into American dollars. Right? Right!! OK! Ladies and gentlemen you will never see a 1 to 1 rate!!!
 
American banks in the USA will say “hey we’re cool. We can safely accept the IQD and convert it electronically to USD’s no problem”. Go back about an hour ago. What did I say? In the near proximal future, my friend will be able to do this. Now you know why. There’s one bank that’s ready.  But I’m not going to tell you where it’s at. In fact there’s another bank that’s just about ready from the CBI satellite banks that will be in the USA. I don’t know how many. If I was to give a ball park number it might be about a dozen of them scattered throughout the USA. And more than likely they will be in the 48 continental states.


So, in taking inventory of our study for tnight: #1We just need to have them announce that they are article VIII. Because they are using International standards. And they have used Article VIII tools to maintain the 2% compliance. Does this all make sense to you?
 
We are taking inventory of what we have studied so far

#1 Article VIII: Please announce it!

#2 You are using Int’l standards in many ways out of Article VIII—not just the 2% compliance.

#3 Private Iraqi banks are going to be in the USA.  Really? Wow!

#4 In a short term date,  they will tell the world what they did on Dec 30th of 2018? Yes!!!

#5 How can we tell you this right now? Because these contracts have been publicly assigned to my friend’s firm to fulfill.
 

If you don’t have our teams then you are going to see some other things on the internet. Therefore this opinion is already released. We are beyond blessed to have my friend’s study because no one on the internet has a friend like mine. We are not ahead of the curve. We are blessed with the truth.
 
This conference call is the definition and implementation of Article VIII. Now, announce it please! Are my teams disappointed that they did not see the lifting of the 3 zeros physically? And, instead, saw it electronically on December the 30th?  No. Why not? Because my teams know they did it electronically and they hold the proof in contractual form and they are motivated  to help you understand all of this.  We just had to be quiet for a while until it was the right time.
 
To the child with chocolate all over his face. Tell me, what did you do? What are you eating? Nothing. Tell me. That’s where we are at right now.
 
#1 They are soon to  tell you that they are done internationally that they are dealing with contracts at 1 to 1.

#2 That they have reached the NEER. And

#3 that they are only using IQD’s in their country not USDs any more.
1,2,3!!!

 
#4 that they are Article VIII. That they will announce Article VIII is the next step

#5 and the dinar will leave the country safely and all on international standards and

#6 REER because they have the Real Effective Exchange Rate of the Iraqi dinar.

 
And by the way congrats to the person who figured out what the “T” meant “even in the shadows of the 101 degrees. The “t” was missing wasn’t it. 1 (t)o 1. That’s what that was all about.
 
I like the fact that there is another party involved, my friend’s firm! Involved with the monetary reform and its reflected in the contracts of my friend. Domestically, yes for now.  But that is the order, that is the command, the fashion in country reinstatement for the citizens, internationally a revaluization. You see the process is from banks to corporations to the citizens 
 
Based on what I shared this evening I ask you this: Would you go into a contract  with someone who couldn’t pay you back? It’s a simple sentence but it’s a very deep thought.  Do you think my friend’s firm is going into 240 contracts under the understanding they will not be paid back? No. Because the contract says 1 to 1. Do you understand that this is a contract. Have you seen any? 240 just in my friend’s firm. These are binding K’s and they are solid because they are backed especially from the Gov’t.  Pretty interesting isn’t it!
 
240 contracts are a lot of contracts at a new RI rate.. And as I said they have gone from the NEER (Nominal effective Exchange rate) to the REER (Real effective Exchange Rate). Soon it will be announced publicly at a rate of 1 to 1 because these calculations have been done, tested and approved. But above all they have been built on Int’l standards. 


​And you have the article from the US Chamber of Commerce. And the extra information we gave you from the Chamber of Commerce from Iraq today. Admitting literally “OK…the answer is Yea we can take care of you and you can have freedom of capital movement.” REALLY?
 
That e-mail from the Iraqi chamber of Commerce only validates   and backs up my friend’s firm’s contracts and what has happened with them. This is public knowledge now. And the only reason we know about these contracts is because we have my friend. If not we would be just like any other site just giving opinions that sometimes just don’t make sense.
 
We are talking about a new phase of the monetary reform to lead the country of Iraq. The reinstatement in writing going legal on it because of a binding contract is to be upheld. The Gov’t put the reinstatement in legal terms with these contracts. A legal commitment at one to one. If they don’t pay and fulfill they forfeit this commitment. And if that’s the case then we are back to the same old same old but we don’t see that. We looked hard for failure. This is a new phase of the monetary reform. It is a legal binding requirement for Iraq to fulfill all these contracts at one to one with the IQD and the American dollar.
 
I guess you could say lesson learned from the Kuwait conference. Because something like this has actually been done before. But the difference is they did that with the investors at the Kuwait conference last yearto come in before they did anything to prove to them that they would be paid at  one to one. I am extremely happy without a doubt. I have an easel board over her if we have to draw this out but I think you’ve got the gist of it.
 
So… what about other firms in Iraq?  Besides my friend’s firm. Did they get any contracts? By the way before I answer that just recently of the 240 contracts another 34 more contracts were offered to them so it’s way past 240 now. IMO other contracts were signed by other companies and IMO and they are probably within the 30-60 days with terms. And IMO those terms would probably start for them on these new contracts on the 13th of January, 2019.
 
Now the details of these other contracts with these other firms is unknown to us. We believe that they are at 1 to 1. And we believe they are being paid in IQDs. The same way almost 300 contracts have already been offered to my friend’s firm.  These contracts are pouring in now because they are needed to rebuild Iraq. And if you are a student and watching very carefully reading these articles with us you are understanding that they are rebuilding this country right now.
 
And the significant thing is the GOI is making a commitment to these legally binding contracts. They are signing contracts. They are signing a boat load of contracts said my friend. And they are starting with firms inside Iraq to offer jobs to the citizens which is only logical. Yea all the other contracts are probably at 1 to 1 but we don’t know. And they are probably 30 days and not so much 60 days out. They are probably very similar to those my friend’s firm has.


Can I tell you something else? IMO they already told you remember it was a four year plan to try to be 1 to 1 with the American dollar. IMO the budget of 2019 is probably at 1 to 1. IMO I believe the 2019 budget is using more than the 1 to 1 rate. I believe that they are using a multiple of different rates based on the fact they are about to go international.

And the reason IMO is because you have provinces, mayors of different villages and  towns that  needed specific  things done, allocated in the budget.  And these agreements were not done all at once! They were done over the whole year of last year. Which .  brought up different rates in the budget of 2019. Once again it covers many projects  in many provinces but once again a projection of what they intended to do  before the end of 2018.
 
IMO we may start to see a rise in the IQD locally. You’ll never see 1 to 1. From  1190 I believe we are going to start to see a rise locally and hopefully just go straight to 1 to 1. But I believe it will be due to the sanctions on Iran. Because they will not be using the USD any longer. And we believe it will give the IQD growing room locally inside of Iraq. This makes sense doesn’t it?
 
So if you see this from the supply and demand of the IQD inside of Iraq then we are being successful with the reinstatement of the IQD. Then the citizens will also see a rise in their local currency, (i.e. purchasing power). Now let’s ask a question together. Frank, is this purchasing power that you think you are going to see soon inside Iraq is this the purchasing power Shabibi promised them? You know an increase from the 1190 to go up a little bit? The answer is “no”. It’s the start of it.
 
There is a lot of talk and my friend and his firm is hearing it. A lot of talk in Iraq. Actually this talk occurred a long time ago all into last year. But because of the calculations that were successful in lifting the three zeros electronically and proved by the CBI the talk I am about to tell you is nothing to worry about. It’s very interesting what I am about to tell you. I apologize I am throwing so many things at you. you’re going to have to listen and take notes and make decisions. I am throwing you a bucketful of things.
 
Now this talk that was all over the place last year—not only within the GOI but the CBI too. It was bleeding everywhere. There’s lot of talk saying in fact you have an article –Samson brought it into our forum five days ago Post # 161. Go back and find it because I’m not posting any more articles in our final article thread. For a reason! But that post had a quote that said “It’s wrong to compare the IQD to a lesser valued currency.” Oh, really? YEA!  What’s the matter with you, CBI and GOI?  “We don’t like the basket of currency!”
 
What currencies are you going to have in there? “We don’t want to tell you”. Fine. It’s not like we care. You’re going to be pegged to the American dollar. “Hey! We don’t like that either!”   What? Why you ungrateful little…. Go outside and get a stupid stick so I can hit you with it! What do you mean you don’t like the fact that you are soon to be one to one with the American dollar. What’ya talking ‘bout Willis!


And it turns out they don’t like the basket. They don’t like the currencies that are in the basket. And #2 they are very concerned that the IQD is “priced” (that’s what they call it over there) is pegged to the American dollar. Why you ungrateful little…Why does that bother you? Because if we remain pegged to the USD after the reinstatement of the IQD well we are concerned that the IQD will be of more value vs the American dollar. You know for a REER (a Real Effective Exchange Rate) . They cannot be pegged to the USD.because we believe that the IQD will have more value than the USD  very soon. And after the reinstatement (RI) is released well we simply fear it will retard the value of our IQD.
 
OK let me get this straight, you pompous ass!  You’re telling me you don’t want the IQD to be pegged to the USD because you know damn well your currency is about to go up in value and internationally and probably supercede the American dollar and you’re afraid  we are going to drag you down in value? You’re afraid we are going to retard the process of the revaluization of your currency internationally? (Laughter). OK. Fine. Drop the USD for all I care! (More laughter). And also don’t bother telling us what currencies you are going to peg to in the Middle East basket. Because in all honesty, a higher rate for the IQD vs the USD is only good for us invested in the IQD!
 
Yea. Middle Eastern attitudes. Ya gotta love ‘em! I personally hate them. By the way this has all been calculated like I told you at the beginning when I started this topic. This has all been calculated and figured out long ago by the CBI and the Fab Four (the IMF, World Bank, US Treasury and Donald Trump)! These two concerns we just talked about the basket and the IQD pegged to the USD—this concern is LOUD in Iraq by those that are just simply not informed yet of the trueness of the monetary reform of the Iraqi dinar engineered by Dr Shabibi and the Fab Four.
 
These are just people that should just keep their mouth shut. They don’t know what they are talking about. They might as well be Dinar Gurus on the internet. So these people that are complaining (like Maliki and his idiots) should just shut up as they did recently because  they don’t know the CBI’s true intentions on the Middle East currency basket. But IMO, we as investors, are not at all concerned about their concerns. OK?
 
Now I bring this up to you because you saw this in articles and I want you to understand our point of view—our opinion. And you know what? When you summarize this file they are not arguing about doing a reinstatement. They are arguing, talking and concerned .about “post reinstatement” effects!  (Laughter). Once again, a projection of what their true intentions are. My friend is good with our study not because he is a prophet that sees into the future. But because he lives in the present of the monetary reform!


​So.. a quick summary… a fear of the IQD being paired to a basket of ..oh whatever. A fear that post RI being pegged to the USD would retard the value of the IQD... whatever. These factors have long been determined, calculated and accepted and the key is that they are talking and their talk within the GOI and the CBI is getting louder and louder.

Therefore, IMO, a 1 to 1 in country is something that we, as investors of the IQD, will never see!  (hint: IMO the rate we see will be much higher).
 
I have 5 minutes before we have our final commercial and right after that our final file. Like you need more!!!! Everything that I have is just a continuing momentum of going straight to the apex of the mountain. So in five minutes let me give you this and when we come back from our last commercial get ready for more.
 
My friend and his firm were IMO privy to see another contract from another firm—a  friend of theirs. It turns out it is a contract worth 11 million dollars. It is a 90 day contract for service. It’s a contract for those of you who are students and you want to look into this  “Eco Commerce Services”. That’s the category of this 11 million dollar contract that my friend’s friend in Iraq received. And what an eco commerce services is is a platform of tools for the buying and selling of services and goods.
 
Now here’s the clincher—the powerful part. This 11 million dollar contract which is public knowledge because it’s in their hands it shows a value—not of 1 to 1. It shows a IQD rate of $1.38!!! And if you could see the contract and do the math at $1.38  it comes out to 11 million dollars. These contracts are pouring out at 30, 60, 90 days whatever and they are coming at such a speed IMO they will have to announce what they are doing very soon!
 
What I shared with you is public but if my friend did not exist or if his firm was not offered these contracts we would not know this! We know this now don’t we!  Maybe they are encouraging themselves to make this announcement very soon of all the subjects I have given you. Think about all of the subjects I have given you tonight. Which one of them do you like?
 
So the two banks that my friend’s firm has in Baghdad (and other Iraqi banks that have twinned with US banks) we want you to know it’s all tested! What’s “tested”? Ladies and gentlemen I would like to talk to you after our final commercial about something called RTGS (Real Time Gross Settlement).
 
We are now headed to the end of our conference call. The last topic tonight are two systems that the Central Bank of Iraq and the Government of Iraq have used. Once of them is called the RTGS system and the other one is called the NEFT. What is the difference between these two? First of all I want you to know these two systems have been and are being used by Iraq.  Now pay close attention. And understand the value of these international standard systems.
 
The NEFT (National Electronic Funds Transfer) is a real time transfer of transactions in bunches or batches in volume but it’s not done in real time. But now they are using the RTGS real time gross settlement system this is also a transfer of money but it’s not in bunches or batches. It’s ala carte.


Ok so you have this account? Yes I do. You want to send this money where? A bank in the USA. Okey dokey says the Iraqi bank. “Go ahead fill out the papers and we will send this one transaction of yours to a bank in the USA because we have the RTGS system and our currency is international”. We can transfer ala carte one at a time. And here’s the nice thing about it. It will be done instantly!!! That’s what RTGS is. And on top of that how much do you want to transfer? A dollar? We can do it instantly!  What if I had  a million dollars? We can do it! Instantly right now!  High volume, low volume it doesn’t matter. We can now transfer it from our banks to other banks outside of our country at any amount any time instantly.
 
Iraq now has the RTGS and you saw the articles. In fact in those articles Iraq told you “We choose the RTGS system”. Well you can choose all you want but you were told what to do weren’t you!  Shhhh. OK CBI so you’ve decided to use the RTGS system. “Yes so we can transfer in a single transaction either low or high values of volume of the IQD”.  So when we take our IQD’s out of a satellite bank of the CBi where we deposited IQD to have it stay as an IQD deposit --when we take those dinars out of that CBI satellite bank and deposit them into a twin USA bank in America the IQD will be instantly wired to the CBI without any limitations in high or low volume. It is immediately done.
 
This is a new phase. This whole conference call is a new phase. When you Americans who have dinars when you take them into one of our twin American Banks in America that have been twinned with Iraqi banks internationally we will instantly send that Iraqi dinar immediately to the CBI in either high or low volumes. It will be immediately done.
 
Wait a minute you mean when I go into an American bank and give them my IQD’s it’s going back to the CBI in Iraq? It’s not going to the US Treasury? Well of course not!  The CBI says we want our three zeros notes back. You already have dinars in your Treasury. This is good!  Well yea the CBI says “we gotta get our stuff together”!  For our note count. For our currency. This is a procedure that all international banks are well aware of. Right now the CBI is concerned about their M-1. M-2, M-3. You cannot blame us! No we cannot blame you. You CBI want yor 3 zeros notes back as quickly as possible to finish the monetary reform!
 
What are you going to do with those three zero notes? Are you going to put them back in circulation? (laughing) NO!  You’re not are you! NO! We’ve been wanting to collect these for a long time! We collected as many as we could from the citizens but they are stubborn! And they’ve got their little plans, ya know. Good luck to them. But you—investors outside of our country—when you go to one of our mirrored banks that we have established already in the USA and many countries. Yea we are going to receive those notes back to us, the CBI.
 
The value of my transaction will be wired to the CBI. The CBI then credits the USA twin bank with the transaction value for their customer and then takes the three zero notes physically that were taken to the bank in the United States. They (the twin US bank) does get the value wired electronically instantly from the CBI to the twin American bank but then the twin American bank will take physically those three zero notes from their customer and send it back to us the CBI and then we (the CBI) will remove it from Iraq’s currency circulation. ​


These are accomplished international standards. And, by the way these things we are talking about these systems and mirroring with banks--all of this—it’s all in place with the CBi and with Banks around the world. You read about it in those articles! Yep we (the CBI) are  linked up internationally all around the world.   All those that have twinned with Iraqi private banks.
 
You ask constantly for a date to which I constantly say “I don’t care!” I don’t care about when it happens I don’t care about the rate. I care about the International steps that are in place right now for a reinstatement!
 
Leave the date and the rate alone! Realize that the RI is no longer alone! Thanks to the President of the United States Donald Trump and the Fab Four. Also in early December which we’ve already talked about remember when the US Treasury met with the CBI. You saw the article.  Also in early December when the US treasury met with the CBI IMO they got an earful! Not of wax. (laughing) they got yelled at. And deservedly so.
 
Before year’s end on the 30th of December they lifted the 3 zeros electronically on these contracts. And in the very very, near future (whenever that turns out to be) you are going to see the results of this. Because it will be your turn to take advantage of the bridges that have been established with the twinned American banks.
 
Also I want you to note something. You saw the article about Iran. And that they are lifting three zeros. That’s simply a LOP. And  I’ll tell you this: there is all the reason for the Iranian Rial  to LOP as there is for the IQD  to RD-RV-RI  Hurrah! Wouldn’t you say!
 
Also there was an article that came out and showed you pictures of the Iraqi dinar in clusters and you said oh look there’s the lower denoms that we have right now! They’re getting rid of them they are showing they are replacing them. No that article was very simply telling you there is a huge business –it’s a big hobby in the Middle East to collect currency. Samples of it. So if you don’t know about that I just thought it was important that I tell you to not pay attention to that article. Ok?
 
There was another article that caused some concern because you looked at it and you said look it says 50 trillion allocated in the budget for article 140. Well, I’ll be honest with you  I don’t ever recall the GOI doing this before—allocating money for Article 140. Do you understand the seriousness of this! It’s interesting and it may be for the census which would affect not only Article 140 but the HCL (Hydrocarbon Law). Pretty cool huh? It’s all coming together isn’t it! But I do want you to know this allocation has nothing to do with the monetary reform of the Iraqi dinar. Okay Dokay?
 
We are down to our last 15 minutes. And my friend hopes this report to you was beneficial. My friend leaves you with this thought regarding the reinstatement of the Iraqi Dinar and also regarding our conference call. My friend says “Frank, you don’t build an international bridge to blow it up. You do so to get across”.
 
By the way “mirroring”—what does that mean? You see this is a process in which International standards and a protocol is established between banks due to the success of a bank platform transfer with money. Maybe the testing of  2nd set of books.
 
So in our study we have learned of private banks in Iraq mirroring and we’ve learned just now the definition with international standards with banks around the world. And I also don’t want you to forget do you know who else “mirrored”? Do you know who else is “mirrored”?  The Iraqi stock exchange!  Oh Snap!

Topics tagged under 6 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality Nucific-Jan-2017-11-MR
(Natural News ) After Natural News revealed the complete list of vaccine excipient ingredients published by the CDC earlier this week, the vaccine-pushing mainstream media exploded with accusations that falsely claimed Natural News was writing “fake news.” Some of the arguments backing this assertion included wildly uninformed opinions such as, “there’s no way the CDC would approve monkey kidney cells being injected into humans.”
Vaccine ingredient DENIALISM, it seems, is alive and well across the fakestream media.
As Natural News correctly reported, one of the many animal-derived ingredients used in vaccines and openly admitted by the CDC is African Green Monkey kidney cells. Apparently, this realization was just too much for the scientifically illiterate media (and wholly dishonest vaccine pushers) who insisted it couldn’t possibly be true.
Now, CDC has confirmed the Natural News story to be 100% accurate and true through several documents posted on the CDC website which openly admit that African Green Monkey kidney cells are used in vaccines approved by the CDC for immunizations across America.
Here’s the irrefutable proof, which also demonstrates that the mainstream media is pushing fake news about vaccines while Natural News is one of the very few journalism organizations that dares to publish real news about vaccines.
CDC confirms Natural News is 100% correct AGAIN
First, a CDC document titled “Vaccine Excipient & Media Summary” lists all the vaccine excipient ingredients found in CDC-approved vaccines. The URL for this document is:
https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pubs/pinkbook/downloads/appendices/B/excipient-table-2.pdf
As you can see from the screen shots of the document, below, the list of excipient ingredients is “current as of January 6, 2017,” according to the CDC.
Topics tagged under 6 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality Vaccine-Excipient-and-Media-Summary-Page-1
You’ll also see that this document includes a row for a Smallpox vaccine known as “Vaccinia – ACAM2000.” The list of excipients in this vaccine are:
African Green Monkey kidney (Vero) cells, HEPES, human serum albumin, sodium chloride, neomycin, polymyxin B, Glycerin, phenol
Topics tagged under 6 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality Smallpox-African-Green-Monkey-Kidney-Page-3
Note the inclusion of African Green Monkey kidney cells in the list. And note carefully that the entire mainstream media is calling Natural News a liar for accurately citing this CDC document.
In addition, this same document also includes an ingredients list for another vaccine called Adenovirus, which contains the following ingredients, one of which is derived from aborted human fetal cells:
human-diploid fibroblast cell cultures (strain WI-38), Dulbecco’s Modified Eagle’s Medium, fetal bovine serum, sodium bicarbonate, monosodium glutamate, sucrose, D-mannose, D-fructose, dextrose, human serum albumin, potassium phosphate, plasdone C, anhydrous lactose, microcrystalline cellulose, polacrilin potassium, magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate, cellulose acetate phthalate, alcohol, acetone, castor oil, FD&C Yellow #6 aluminum lake dye
Topics tagged under 6 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality Adenovirus-Row-WI-38-Page-1
As you can see form this list, these CDC-approved vaccines are deliberately formulated with all sorts of highly toxic and questionable ingredients, including acetone, a toxic solvent, aluminum, artificial coloring chemicals, human blood components, dextrose (probably from GMO corn), cow blood components and a whole lot more.

FDA confirms these vaccines are licensed and approved for use in the United States

Are these vaccines made with African Green Monkey kidney cells and aborted human fetal cells really used in the United States?
YES.
This page from the FDA lists all the vaccines which are “licensed for use in the United States,” and it includes the vaccines containing African Green Monkey kidney cells and the WI-38 aborted human fetal cells.

LIVE Smallpox viruses grown in monkey kidneys, then harvested to be injected into YOU!

In addition to the CDC confirming Natural News is 100% correct through the documents listed above, the vaccine insert sheet itself also describes the use of African Green Monkey kidney cells.
From the insert sheet for the ACAM2000 smallpox vaccine, approved by the FDA in 2007 and still on the approved list:
https://www.fda.gov/downloads/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/UCM142572.pdf
Click the following link for a backup copy on Natural News servers.
http://www.naturalnews.com/files/UCM142572.pdf
ACAM2000, Smallpox (Vaccinia) Vaccine, Live, is a live vaccinia virus derived from plaque purification cloning from Dryvax® (Wyeth Laboratories, Marietta, PA, calf lymph vaccine, New York City Board of Health Strain) and grown in African Green Monkey kidney (Vero) cells and tested to be free of adventitious agents. ACAM2000 is provided as a lyophilized preparation of purified live virus containing the following non-active excipients: 6-8 mM HEPES (pH 6.5-7.5), 2% human serum albumin USP, 0.5 – 0.7% sodium chloride USP, 5% mannitol USP, and trace amounts of neomycin and polymyxin B.

Vaccine WARNINGS related to the vaccine using African Green Monkey kidney cells

Not surprisingly, this vaccine is known to cause extremely serious and even deadly side effects at a shockingly high rate. Here’s the WARNING box from the vaccine insert sheet, linked above:
WARNING:
See full prescribing information for complete boxed warning
Myocarditis and pericarditis (suspect cases observed at a rate of 5.7 per 1000 primary vaccinees (95% CI: 1.9-13.3)), encephalitis, encephalomyelitis, encephalopathy, progressive vaccinia, generalized vaccinia, severe vaccinial skin infections, erythema multiforme major (including STEVENS-JOHNSON SYNDROME), eczema vaccinatum resulting in permanent sequelae or death, ocular complications, blindness and fetal death, have occurred following either primary vaccination or revaccination with live vaccinia virus smallpox vaccines. These risks are increased in certain individuals and may result in severe disability, permanent neurological sequelae and/or death [see Warnings and Precautions (5)].
Here’s a screen shot of the warnings section of the vaccine insert:
Topics tagged under 6 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality Warnings-and-Precautions-Page-1
Note the mention of “death” several times, and the shockingly high rate of serious adverse events at 5.7 per 1000 vaccinees. Notice also that this vaccine can cause permanent blindness, spontaneous abortions and severe neurological damage.
Note also that the entire vaccine pushing mainstream media will deny ever word of this even thought it’s printed right on the vaccine insert sheet. This shows you the extreme dishonesty and medical malpractice of all those who push vaccines while falsely claiming them to be “safe.”

CDC science paper from 2016 further confirms Natural News is 100% correct

For yet more irrefutable proof of the use of African Green Monkey kidney cells in CDC-approved vaccines, refer to this 2016 science paper published on the CDC.gov website entitled Use of Vaccinia Virus Smallpox Vaccine in Laboratory and Health Care Personnel at Risk for Occupational Exposure to Orthopoxviruses — Recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), 2015 .
As the CDC openly admits in this paper:
ACAM2000 is a vaccinia virus vaccine derived from a plaque-purified clone of the same New York City Board of Health strain that was used to manufacture Dryvax vaccine. ACAM2000 is grown in African green monkey kidney (Vero) cells and tested to be free of known adventitious agents (4). Safety data from ACAM2000 clinical trials indicate a similar safety profile to Dryvax, including a risk for serious adverse events (e.g., progressive vaccinia, postvaccinial encephalitis, and eczema vaccinatum) (5,6). Myopericarditis has also been associated with ACAM2000 and is estimated to occur at a rate of 5.7 per 1,000 primary vaccinees based on clinical trial data (6).

Who’s really lying? The vaccine pushers who refuse to tell the truth about vaccine ingredients

Reviewing the irrefutable proof from the CDC that confirms Natural News is 100% correct about the use of African Green Monkey kidney cells in vaccines, we have:
#1) CDC excipients sheet from January 6, 2017, documenting the use of African Green Monkey kidney cells in vaccines.
#2) The Smallpox ACAM2000 vaccine insert sheet, also openly discussing how live viruses are grown in African Green Monkey kidneys, then harvested for use in vaccines.
#3) CDC.gov science paper that further confirms and discusses the use of African Green Monkey kidneys in vaccines.
Yet, astonishingly, there isn’t a single corporate-run media outlet in the world that will acknowledge this irrefutable fact. Instead, they attack it and label it “fake news” for the simple reason that they don’t want you to know what’s really in vaccines.
It’s clear at this point that the corporate-run media owes Natural News an apology… and they owe their audiences an explanation. More importantly, now that you know about this particular cover-up, you’re also probably smart enough to know that they’re lying to you about everything else related to vaccines, too.
Don’t believe a single thing the corporate-run media tells you about vaccines. They are knowingly lying all the time. Stay informed at Vaccines.news and Natural News .

Marner Game Worn Jersey Authenticity Fallout - Thu 23 Feb 2017, 8:23 pm

The Devil’s In The Details #6: Marner Game Worn Jersey Authenticity Fallout
February 23, 2017, 12:15 PM ET [2 Comments]

“Buyer Beware” is a relevant warning across any transaction, be they monetary or not, as you always want to make sure, to the best of your ability, that you’re getting what you are being “sold”. This is part of the social and business contract, no? You give me this, I give you that. While this is certainly the ideal, we’re all hip to the fact that many exchanges do not adhere to this standard, whether intentionally or as a result of innocent oversights, and in the end someone is going to be feeling a bit burnt.

To say that there have been a few burnt customers in the sports memorabilia market would be a huge understatement. Indeed, this is an economy that has been driven in part through the exchange of empty promises over the years. Be they counterfeit autographs, cards, equipment or outright mislabeled items, there has always been a significant market share of knock off pieces floating around. It is for this very reason that collectors have to be on top of things when looking to drop money on anything. A healthy skepticism will serve one well in this hobby as it keeps you safe, plain and simple. At the end of the day, there are a number of preventative measures one can take (i.e., Buy from reputable dealers; Get the autograph yourself; Have items evaluated/graded before purchasing; Have samples for comparison; etc…) that can lower the chances of being hosed on a deal.

All this being said, there will be times when, despite having covered your bases, things go bad. Case in point: the fallout from the London Knights sale of a Mitch Marner jersey. The purchaser, Scott Galbraith, alleged in August of 2016 that the London Knights, rather than providing him with the game-used Mitch Marner jersey he won through a CHL auction, gave him a new jersey that had been doctored to appear as though it had been. While this case was settled out of court shortly after the allegations arose, the suspicions cast on the Knights organization led to other collectors scrutinizing their purchases more closely, and brought forward further allegations, including being sold game worn jerseys:

- for players who were playing for another organization at the time the jersey was authenticated as having been worn

- authenticated as being used in the Memorial Cup when that style of jersey was not worn

- that appeared to be in pristine condition when the player’s style was not conducive to it being in such condition

Furthermore, a former London Knights retail store worker brought forward allegations that doctoring of new jerseys by throwing pucks at them to create the appearance of being game-worn reportedly occurred during his employment.

For the nitty gritty on the stories, head to the original Mitch Marner jersey story  and the more recent aftermath beyond Marner  that will continue to play out. Bottom line here: while going straight to the source for one’s memorabilia remains a solid way to reduce the chance of purchasing fraudulent items, we can see that, should the aforementioned allegations prove correct, it is not sufficient to prevent it. So the key? Avoid blind faith. There is no fool proof method for ensuring the authenticity of any piece outside of being there to witness the handover or get the signature. Barring the ability to do this, the more safeguards you build into the process, the more certainty you can have. Be vigilant…

PLUS/MINUS: Being Alive, Art Ross Backstrom, Capitals, Coyotes, More

"PLUS/MINUS is the NHL's best stat, and the only one I use
- Craig Button*

PLUS: I think considering the president lies constantly about how crappy the world is, it's worth pointing out factually that crime and pollution peaked in the 1970s. We live in one of the most peaceful, safest, times in human history.  

Whether we are talking technology, access to medicine, or equality, things are as good as they have ever been. Even though people try to scare you into thinking we live in a terrifying world resembling the classic Kurt Russel film Escape from L.A, it simply isn't true.  



I'm not saying everything is perfect, obviously the Foo Fighters still release albums and a mentally unstable lunatic has the nuclear launch codes, but more people have access to food, clean water and medicine than ever before. Also, life expectancy is up, extreme poverty is down. Freedom is up, oppression is down, we use less oil.  

If you could be alive at any time in history, this is objectively the best time. And I'm not just saying that because the Leafs have Auston Matthews, William Nylander and Mitch Marner.  

PLUS:

John Drouin is an amazing player. Watch out for Tampa. If they make the Playoffs and get a plumb match-up vs the Canadiens or something...while Stamkos comes back and suddenly they're a Cup favorite everyone forgot about.  

PLUS: Coyotes 4 Pittsburgh 3. (OT)  

This shows that miracles really can happen. Connor Murphy scored his first goal of the season (six year contract? MINUS) and the NHL's second best team lost to the worst one. (Sorry Colorado).  

That loser, Sidney Crosby, again FAILED to score his 1000th career point. So Sad. In other news, the Coyotes elected to healthy scratch Jakob Chychrun while Anthony DeAngelo continues to play in the AHL.  

Dave Tippet, genius coach of clutch and grab hockey, played Luke Schenn more last night at 5v5 than he played OEL. Though, to be fair OEL played 7 extra minutes on special teams. However, an NHL coach should understand the importance of 5v5 ice time. One would think. Also, rookies Lawson Cruise, Christian Dvorak and Branden Perlini played for less than ten minutes.  

Not sure that is the way to deploy a young team, but then again, I don't have any pants on.  

PLUS: Mike Smith. Once again, he gets the Coyotes a win they didn't really deserve. He is having an insane season. I am the only one noticing.  

PLUS: Saturday Night Live, was hilarious last night. Also, John Oliver is back tonight.  



PLUS: A full three months of not smoking cigarettes. I can now walk up stairs and shovel snow. I no longer get winded tying my shoes. I have money coming out of my ass, and I am way more productive at work because I don't stop every half hour to go for a smoke. On the down side, I am way less cool.  

MINUS: Every time I get drunk and everyone else goes to bed, I try to watch Air Force One but I always fall asleep before anyone gets on the damn plane.  

PLUS: I became the proudest a father can be when I introduced my kids to Lord of the Rings and one of them (my new favorite) liked it. The other two can piss off, but me and the cool one are gonna visit the Two Towers next.  

To my other kids: You best like Back to the Future or we're done!! 

PLUS: I wasn't previously aware that Kelly-Anne Conway was in LOTR. She kills it as hideous orc #6.  

PLUS: The play of Evander Kane. Kane seems to be in the news when he sleeps in or parties with Drake from Degrassi, but he is an elite scorer since whenever he stopped being injured. I think he's on a 45 goal pace or something like that. Either way, he's helping me stay alive in a hockey pool where one of my goalies is Connor Hellybuck.  



PLUS: The Capitals beat the Ducks 6-4 last night. That means it's 11 straight games they have scored 5 + goals at home. Pretty sweet.  

What's interesting is that they've scored five or six goals in way more than half their games since New Years, but they don't quite lead the league in goals-for. The Penguins have one more goal in two less games and the Rangers are right there too. Given how much the Capitals have scored recently, that's insane.  

Also insane: they have almost 90 more goals scored than the Avalanche. Which, in and of itself isn't too crazy, but consider the Avs have Duchene, Landeskog, Barrie and MacKinnon.  

PLUS: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. This show is an artistic achievement on par with the Sistine Chapel, Gravity's Rainbow and the Godfather 2.

The recent episode where Mac finally comes out of the closet is the single funniest half hour of TV I've ever seen. Not to oversell it or anything. But come on, we're supposed to pretend we live in a dystopian hellscape when this is available for free? 

PLUS: Nick Backstrom is now only one point behind Connor McDavid for the lead-league in points. Literally no one saw that coming. Not even Backstrom's mom, who actually attends games in a Kuznetsov jersey.  

PLUS: Firing Claude Julien. Just kidding, that is so, so dumb. Also, I was kidding about Backstrom's mom, she actually wears a Lars Eller jersey most nights. 



PLUS: Valentines Day is Tuesday and my wife didn't even ask me to cancel poker. Because she is the best. And, if we did have to do something, we'd go see John Wick 2.  
You can see why I always keep it so positive.  

Midnight “Release” Again – 178 Page FBI Clinton Email Document Release With Interesting Content… - Sat 04 Feb 2017, 2:11 pm

Midnight “Release” Again – 178 Page FBI Clinton Email Document Release With Interesting Content…

Posted on February 4, 2017 by sundance
Internet researcher Katica has again discovered the FBI quietly, and without explanation, just released another batch of documents from the “ongoing” FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email use and classified information.  This is release #6, and interestingly this release is titled “part 06 of 06 ” so there might not be any more.  However, this batch is quite a bit more interesting.
The Super-Bowl weekend release is not a document dump; it surfaces as more of a leak than an official release – this is the same way release #5 surfaced.  Katica has an archive notification set-up to alert when the FBI host data site is changed or updated –SEE HERE – Like release #5, the #6 release is not visible directly, but is downloadable to review –SEE HERE – It’s weird how they are doing this; whoever “they” are.

“Why aren’t the Patriots 50 points ahead you might ask?”…  Well, we have downloaded the data and uploaded it into a visible pdf format embed below .  Here’s a few quick glance notes some of the more interesting pages.
♦ Pages 11 and 12, outline an interview conducted as an outcome of a “walk in” to the FBI office by a long-term government official inside the Department of State who provided physical evidence and gave a statement.
♦ Page 55 is really interesting because it shows the results of a forensic examination on July 15th 2016 which discovered 1,539 work related emails between Clinton and Huma Abedin that were not turned over to the State Department.   The 7/15/16 date is important because this discovery was AFTER FBI Director James Comey gave the press conference stating the FBI did not -at that time- have evidence to support a criminal finding.

♦ Page 80 Justin Cooper surfaces again.  Some people suspect Cooper was cooperating with the FBI for much longer than it originally appeared.  I agree with that suspicion.
♦ Page 122 Interview Notes that appear to be related to page 80 (JC).
♦ Page 130/131 Interview notes from a [REDACTED] caller (annoyingly redacted).
♦ Page 139 Appears to be interview notes related to the discovery of Paul Combetta aka “Stonetear” on Reddit.  Date of interview November 17th 2016, post election.
♦ Pages 150+ there are multiple pages of hand written interview notes by the FBI investigators.  Based on the notes, it appears some of these latter FBI interviews were quite lengthy.
HERE is the full release in a 178 page readable and sharable pdf format:
.

Feel free to use the comments section for your review and notes.  Oh, and thanks in advance for people who can read that chicken scratch FBI handwriting in places.

Before the season, Jack Ferreira, Special Assistant to the GM, said to me  about Paul LaDue, “I told him, I can’t wait to see how much he’s improved by January. He’s going to be a player.”

One day after the end of January, LaDue is receiving his first call-up to the Kings, in place of the just-waived Tom Gilbert.

The organization is very high on the 24-year-old. They're not the only ones. Two weeks ago, Elliotte Friedman reported that the Avalanche were looking hard :

Undoubtedly, one of the players they are watching is defenceman Paul Ladue, in his first pro season after three years at North Dakota. I’ve had some guys saying the Kings won’t make him available, others disagreeing. But he’d be a Colorado target.

So what is LaDue's game?

He's a mobile, composed puck-mover. You can see some of that composure here -- LaDue is #6:



A particular skill of LaDue's is his ability to get his right-handed shot through. Ontario Reign Head Coach Mike Stothers recently noted to Frozen Royalty :

"He escapes coverage and forecheckers with his feet, he makes good outlet passes, he’s mobile, and he’s getting the puck though [from the point]. He’s changing his release. He’s not just blasting the puck into the shin pads of the opposing players.”

This skill is highlighted by these clips:







I'd say LaDue's offense is definitely ahead of his defense, but he's proven more than capable on the defensive end in Ontario. He's been playing all situations. 

Listed at 6'1", 205, LaDue is beefy and has held his own down low. There have been some occasional coverage errors, but that might be expected out of a first-year pro, especially given how much the Reign depend on him.

There are also questions about consistency, but again, LaDue's growth is remarkable considering that he's an AHL rookie.

It's hard to project the kind of impact that LaDue will have on the Kings line-up right now. He's certainly not a sure thing to play a lot. But they have been looking for a second-unit power play defenseman and he can fit that role. 

If his puck-moving capability translates immediately and he's able to keep pace defensively, he can become an immediate line-up fixture. LA's bottom-pairing has been a bit of a revolving door this season.

VICE Sports commissioned me recently to write about the growth of youth hockey in Southern California. Check it out , Kings alumni Luc Robitaille, Steve Heinze, and Brandon Convery, along with other LA Kings High School Hockey League, Jr. Kings, and USA Hockey staff contributed.

President of Business Operations Robitaille revealed in the article:

Robitaille discloses, "In the next ten years, I'd like to see the USHL come in on the West Coast." He believes this goal is attainable.

Until now, the best Jr. Kings had to leave to continue their hockey education. For example, Ryan and Etem both headed to the CHL, while Bennett went to the University of Denver. The arrival of the USHL—the top junior ice hockey league in the country, consisting of teams in the Midwest US—could potentially complete the loop locally from Jr. Kings to being drafted by an NHL team.

Bringing the USHL out west will be another earth-shaking development for Southern California hockey, similar to the AHL's arrival last year. Imagine seeing a junior-age Auston Matthews, Jack Eichel, and Max Pacioretty just miles from Staples Center? Trevor Lewis and Derek Forbort also honed their craft in this league. 

When I asked Robitaille about potential local destinations for the USHL, he didn't give any away. Where do you think would be good landing spots?

My thoughts are with Bob Miller and Red Kelly. Both fell ill during All-Star weekend in Los Angeles.

While my interactions with both legends have been limited to a handful of recent interviews, they were amazing experiences with Hall of Famers in seemingly every sense of the word, both on and off the ice.

LA's original head coach, Kelly, who couldn't make it out for the Kings' Opening Night festivities, basked in the glow of his NHL100 selection with his wife of alomst 60 years Andra before falling ill. If you're not familiar with his career, here's one mind-blowing stat: He won four Stanley Cups as a center and four as a defenseman. Eat your heart out, Sergei Fedorov.

Broadcasting icon Miller, who had made a strong return to the booth this year after missing the second half of last season with a heart problem, suffered a mild stroke before he was about to work the All-Star Skills competition. 




Best wishes to Red & Andra and Bob & his wife Judy and their families through these trying times.

Patriots’ opponents: See you in the AFC Championship game - Fri 06 Jan 2017, 8:26 pm

[size=32]Patriots’ opponents: See you in the AFC Championship game[/size]

The New England Patriots  clinched a first-round bye and home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs this winter with their 35-14 win on the road in Miami on Sunday. As such, they join the Kansas City Chiefs  on the sidelines this coming weekend watching the AFC Wild Card round on television.

AROUND COVER32

Power Rankings: Playoff addition






With the seeding set, the #3 seed AFC North champion Pittsburgh Steelers  host the #6 seed Miami Dolphins  and the #4 seed AFC South champion Houston Texans  host the #5 seed Oakland Raiders

With a rematch of the Dolphins 30-15 win in Week 6, as the highest seed the Steelers will play Kansas City if they win. If Miami wins, they return to Foxboro to play the Patriots for a third time this season.

Houston (possibly without promoted starter Tom Savage) takes the place of the Indianapolis Colts as the requisite cupcake from the AFC South. However, the Raiders–down to rookie third-string quarterback Connor Cook last week after an injury to back-up Matt McGloin (filling in for starter Derek Carr who broke his leg)–have gone from potential #1 seed to on the road in the first round.

To simplify, the teams are broken into three categories: Likely to play next week (Houston or Oakland), unlikely to play next week (Miami), impossible to play before AFC Championship game (Kansas City and Pittsburgh):

SEE YOU IN THE AFC CHAMPIONSHIP: 

Pittsburgh Steelers:

The Steelers are habitually considered one of those teams “Nobody Wants to Play in January”–and for good reason. Ben Roethlisberger  is an elite quarterback, running back Le’Veon Bell is a top-three running back in the NFL and Antonio Brown is hands-down the best wide receiver in the NFL (sorry all you A.J. Green, Odell Beckham Jr. and Julio Jones fans).

What holds the Steelers back from being a top seed each year? First off, there is the annual Ben Roethlisberger injury. He is so big, so strong and so fearless that he puts himself in harm’s way to make plays. The other is the brutal divisional schedule. Playing Baltimore and Cincinnati (Cleveland not so much) twice a year is so much tougher than facing the Dolphins, Jets or Bills.

That attrition from injury and tough losses in the division has the Steelers winning 10 or 11 games instead of 12 or 13 games and missing out on the bye week most years. More games are more wear-and-tear and more chances of an upset. 

The Steelers will face a Miami team which beat them 30-15 earlier this season. The defense in Pittsburgh gave up over 200 yards rushing to Miami running back Jay Ajayi in what was clearly a hiccup. Since that game the Steelers had not given up over 140 yards on the ground in a game until the Week 17 “backup-palooza” against Cleveland.

The loss of defensive end Cameron Heyward is a tough injury to overcome. Linebackers Lawrence Timmons and Ryan Shazier anchor a strong linebacker group. The Steelers have 38 sacks but ageless James Harrison leads the team with just five.  The secondary is solid but far from spectacular. 

The Steelers will go as far as their big three on offense takes them. They lack weapons beyond their big three as Darrius Heyward-Bey, Sammie Coates and Eli Rogers are very inconsistent. The suspension of Martavis Bryant and injuries to Markus Wheaton and tight end Ladarius Green have hurt the consistency of the offense. 

The Steelers are a tough team to beat, but fortunately New England cannot face them before the AFC Championship game and they will likely have to go through Kansas City. 

Kansas City Chiefs:

The Chiefs are the team most often mentioned as “The Team No One Wants to Play” in the playoffs. And why not? They have a ferocious defense, explosive weapons on offense and they are disciplined and well-coached. 

The Chiefs’ defense is a bit overrated. Although seventh in scoring defense, they are 24th in yards allowed. Kansas City is 18th in passing yards allowed and 26th in rushing yards allowed. They make their living off of turnovers and are first in the NFL creating 33 turnovers in 2016.


Kansas City has borrowed a page from some of the New England defenses of the past with their bend-but-don’t-break style and reliance on turnovers. The biggest issue for Kansas City’s defense is their drop-off with age and injuries. The pass rush has been keyed by Dee Ford as an outside pass rusher, but Justin Houston has been injured much of the season.

With Houston (4.0 sacks) limited to five games, Ford (10.0 sacks) has been the only consistent pass rusher as Tamba Hali (3.5 sacks) has slowed considerably at age 33. The biggest injury was off-the-line linebacker Derrick Johnson who was having a spectacular season at age 34 before tearing his Achilles. 

The secondary is anchored by safety Eric Berry (four interceptions) and cornerback Marcus Peters (six interceptions). On the defensive line, Dontari Poe is a huge run-stuffer and rookie Chris Jones is big, athletic and on his way to being a solid NFL player.

On offense, Spencer Ware has been solid with Jamaal Charles on injured reserve again. Tyreek Hill adds much-needed explosiveness and is a threat to score anytime he touches the football. Travis Kelce is a receiving threat at tight end with 85 catches for 1,125 yards. 

Quarterback Alex Smith is the quintessential game manager at quarterback. Smith, at age 32, still has mobility and makes very few mistakes. A return to health of wide receiver Jeremy Maclin would help the offense and young receiver Chris Conley is inconsistent.

The Chiefs are dangerous as they have a number of skilled position players on both sides of the ball and Hill makes the special teams unit truly special. Having Kansas City coming into New England is a huge advantage for the Patriots as playing on the road takes away the huge home-field advantage the Chiefs and their loud and smart fan base which knows when and how to make noise to help their team.

With a rematch of the Dolphins 30-15 win in Week 6, as the highest seed, the Steelers will play Kansas City if they win. If Miami wins, they return to Foxboro to play the Patriots for a third time this season.
Houston (possibly without promoted starter Tom Savage ) takes the place of the Indianapolis Colts as the requisite cupcake from the AFC South. However, the Raiders–down to rookie third-string quarterback Connor Cook last week after an injury to back-up Matt McGloin (filling in for starter Derek Carr who broke his leg)–have gone from potential #1 seed to on the road in the first round.
To simplify, the teams are broken into three categories: Likely to play next week (Houston or Oakland), unlikely to play next week (Miami), impossible to play before AFC Championship game (Kansas City and Pittsburgh):
LIKELY TO BE VISITING FOXBORO:
Houston Texans:
The Texans played the Patriots already in 2016 in with a hobbled J.J. Watt right before he ended his season on injured reserve with a back injury. The New England 27-0 thrashing of the Texans in Week 3 on Thursday night dealt Houston their first loss of the season as rookie quarterback Jacoby Brissett won in his first NFL start.
After two decent performances to open the season, Brock Osweiler was exposed before the nation as mediocre. For the season, Osweiler completed just 59% of his passes for 2,957 yards with 15 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. Osweiler is starting by default due to Tom Savage being sidelined by a concussion and Savage may be back if they make it to New England.
In the first game, the Patriots draped cornerback Malcolm Butler over wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins and challenged the Texans to outscore them throwing to tight end Ryan Griffin and wide receiver Will Fuller. The results were as mediocre as expected.
Former Miami Dolphins running back Lamar Miller rushed 21 times for 80 yards but the bend-but-don’t-break defense watched the Texans punt six times, turn the ball over three times and have three drives end on failed fourth-down conversions.
The Texans are an odd playoff team winning the division with a 9-7 record while being outscored by their opponents by 49 points and with the 28th ranked offense. They host the 12-4 Oakland Raiders and their 20th ranked defense. As hard as it is to believe, the Texans could actually pull out a win and travel to New England for the divisional round.
Oakland Raiders:
Oakland was cruising along this season riding the strong arm of quarterback Derek Carr jumping out to an 11-3 record before Carr broke his fibula in Week 16 against Indianapolis. Instead of competing for the number one overall seed, the Raiders dropped their Week 17 game as back-up quarterback Matt McGloin injured his shoulder and gave way to third-string rookie Connor Cook in the loss to Denver.
The loss dropped Oakland out of the bye week and number two seed down to going to Houston as the fifth seed. Cook is expected to start the game at Houston. While not a great option, he is blessed with arguably the NFL’s best pass blocking offensive line in front of him.
The Raiders still have a strong offense with running backs Latavius Murray, DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard leading the NFL’s sixth best rushing offense. The Raiders have dynamic wide receiver Amari Cooper and veteran Michael Crabtree giving them two 1,000 yard receivers.
Defense is the issue in Oakland although they showed improvement in the second half of the season. After getting lit-up by New Orleans and Atlanta in the first two games of the season, they have slowly improved. Outside linebackers Khalil Mack and Bruce Irvin are a dynamic duo of quarterback pressure and have 18 of the team’s 25 sacks.

In the secondary, veteran safety Reggie Nelson leads the team with five interceptions and cornerbacks Sean Smith and David Amerson are a solid duo of starters but the loss of 2013 first-round draft pick cornerback D.J. Hayden to injury this month hurts. Hayden was having his best season after transitioning to the third cornerback role defending in the slot.
Oakland is a flawed team with horrendous injury issues at quarterback. Had Carr stayed healthy, they would likely be joining the Patriots on the bye week. They are the most likely to travel to New England for the Divisional Playoff game as even on the road they should have enough talent on both sides of the ball to beat the Texans.
UNLIKELY…JUST SAW YOU–GO AWAY:
Miami Dolphins :
Does anyone in New England really want to see Miami come back north to Foxboro for the second time this season for another game after the Patriots defeated them with and without Tom Brady? Yes, it is very difficult to beat a team three times in one season but New England outscored them 66 to 38 in two games.
In addition, the Dolphins have to travel to Pittsburgh to face the Steelers. Yes, Miami defeated the Steelers 30-15 in Week 6, but the Steelers’ defense was in a bad place at that time and Roethlisberger was clearly hobbled.
Miami looks a lot like the 2015 New York Jets right now: they are a .500 team who took advantage of an easy schedule this year and pulled out a number of close games. They beat Cleveland in overtime, Buffalo by three points twice (once in overtime), Arizona by three points, the Rams by four points, the Jets by four points and the 49ers by a touchdown. Seven of their ten wins were by seven or less points–games which could have gone either way.
Miami had a lot to play for at home versus New England last week and were dominated early and late with only a brief sign of life around halftime. A playoff team fighting for the fifth seed and a match-up against Houston instead of Pittsburgh showed little fire at home generating just 280 yards of offense and falling behind 20-0 before losing 35-14.

The Dolphins figure to be a longshot to go into Pittsburgh and win.
