Tony: Good morning, TNT! It is Friday, August 29, 2014. You can see we are in a really, really good mood for a really, really good reason that we’re going to get to. First of all, I had breakfast with some TNT members this morning – thanks, it was good meeting you. I am live in Pastor Sugg’s studio right this moment – 106.9 WBN radio. We are having a good time, though I can’t do any cussing because I’m in the pastor’s radio booth.
It’s a really, really good day. We’ll start will what’s going on in Iraq in the last 24 hours. We don’t want to know what’s going on it US!
DC: They have had a great 24 hours and it keeps getting better and better. I will try to talk more slowly. Bottom line is Iraq look phenomenal. The full GOI was formally seated and announced yesterday evening in the 11 oClock news, at the mosques and other places. Everyone is getting really happy. There are plans throughout the country and the next question is “where is our RV?” I think it’s pretty close behind it, with plans being executed as we speak to prepare for the change in rate RIGHT NOW.
Tony: I put all the air in this balloon and you just let the air out! You do know the details but you’re just not telling them!
DC: I don’t want to step on anyone’s toes. Notifications have been going out for the last couple days and again after the GOI business to the banks, merchants, and all the rest. They are being told to use the small change and lower denominations in a very tight timeline. They have trainers at all the banks and major merchants, and even to the customs agents. They have all been put in place and ready to go. There have been preparations for celebrations and announcements, including places, things, food, etc, in Baghdad and throughout the country. Police and military have been put on notice so that no one takes advantage of all the happy people. All the parliamentarians are in their places, speeches have been prepared, and all announcement arrangements have been made. Why would they do all this if they were not prepared to do this soon?
Tony: At breakfast they asked, “Who is DC for real? What agency does he work for? Was he told to watch you or did he volunteer?” I said that he’s there to make sure I don’t say what I shouldn’t say. I would tell you everything! That’s why DC is giving you the information! It’s a great day to be a dinarian – really, really exciting. You handled that well; I might have taken one or two steps too far.
DC: Let’s leave it there. We don’t want to give anyone an excuse to do anything stupid. So we’ll just let it be.
Tony: We are having fun, because it’s a fun time!
DC: A bit more on Iraq… their situation because of ISIL has been in the news, but most of what you see in the US has been based on Syria. With US air strikes and coalition special forces, the Iraqi forces have done a great job knocking them back and also destroying their financial networks.
In the US, they have been preparing for some time, some tests of have been run, and now everyone feels confident and excited about the next stages for us and the rest of the US economy and the world economy. The administration and the two parties are all very excited about where this leads and what it does and what a major event it is for the world. Also, they are prepared in the US. Everyone is prepared, they have their plans in place, and have been practicing.
Tony: We will just do this call until the top of the next hour. Please just ask one very exciting question so that we can cover as many as possible, okay?
559 caller: AMEN to all the positive, wonderful things said about everyone on this call. The only way we can pay you back is by paying it forward. Our foundation is creating water wells in Africa, and a medical facility in Sudan we want to help, and other projects in Africa need help. There are two disaster relief organizations in the US, one with hot meals and the other with trucks full of things for people who have been devastated by disasters. Also, look on RayRen’s site about trusts and foundations.
Do we need to give the trust EIN on the call or for the appointments?
Will all the banks be offering the same contract rates?
DC: I don’t think they will ask for SS or EIN numbers on the initial call.
Tony: We do not know… we have not got the package yet … but I think the banks will be competitive but we don’t’ know the exact rates. Also, every bank updates at a different time of the day, so there is a key for you in there.
313 caller: On Wednesday’s call, someone brought up about the exchange, the lady in Atlanta, and DC said the 800 number situation kept changing and you might not be able to know if there would be 800 numbers. If not, are they still going to send us to specific locations? How will we know what to do and where to go? Will you do the NDA at once and shut down and then we will have to fend for ourselves? I have this stuff set up, but newer people might not know where to look or how to get there.
Tony: If they don’t do what they should do or what they said they would do for the last two years, will I sacrifice myself and NOT sign the NDA so that I can give you the intel?
Caller: Will you be able to tweet the information, or will the procedure go as planned?
Tony: Here is what is supposed to happen. If I get the call that I’m shut down, then they will have to send out the information. If something else happens and I haven’t signed the NDA, I can say whatever I want. But we don’t know which one it’s going to be. My hope and understanding is that they would send out 800 numbers with some kind of instructions so that people don’t pile up at the banks. I just don’t think they will let things happen that way. I think people are smarter than that. Maybe they have another plan we don’t’ know about. But we also have DC’s phone and address…
Caller: You said at one point that you might have to give your TNT list to them; will that help smooth the process.
Tony: That’s the only way I would give out my list, is if that benefits you. If they wanted to send out personal emails so that you can go to the bank as part of that loose group, then I would do it. Otherwise, I do not give my list to anyone. I got into this because someone asked me to walk them through this situation. Then we started the twitter campaign to make sure that we are treated fairly, that we could get the international rate and some of the contract rate. That’s the only reason I’m here. It’s all about you guys. Once we got involved, well, I do know where the bodies are buried. Myself, I can always take care of myself, in terms of the rate. If the rate comes out at a dollar, I an work with that because I know how to multiply that. So this is about you, those who have been listening and waiting for all this time. Even if we don’t do the 7-14 days, I feel responsible to give you guys some kind of help and guidance.
Caller: If there are not 800 numbers, we don’t know if or where there are exchange centers, and then we just have to walk into our local banks and ask to see the screen?
Tony: You are asking me what to do in a scenario that I’m not sure will happen and doesn’t make sense anyway. It would just create chaos at the banks with everyone telling all their neighbors, and everyone with their different stories and all the rest. I just don’t see them doing that.
Caller: I am Chaldean, living in the USA, and I have a lot of friends in the old country. I run your information by them, and it has proven to be so. [appreciation]
Tony: DC is right, nobody owes us anything, we do this out of the kindness of our hearts, and now we are in so deep that people are relying on us. Pam, DC, Ray, our mods all do this for free, and they are here and in the chat rooms all the time. They are people who care about people and that’s our way of paying it forward.
DC: We got in this to help folks out, and our concern for everyday people about the 800 numbers and such, is not so much about different rates, but more concerned about getting educated the right way. This is new and scary for some, and sometimes it’s overlooked by the planning and legal people that these are everyday folks who haven’t been living in their world for the last ten years. That’s why we want to walk you through the process as we’ve been doing here.
Tony: We’re not scared of the banks, but of people not understanding the process.
717 caller: It’s Zebragirl! DC, I am sure your second job is the one who reads the small print at the end of car adverts. If we have a personal banker, should we call them directly? And what would the esteemed elder statesman say if we saw him face to face?
Tony: If you have a personal banker, that’s the person I would call! They want to the commission on that money. I will call someone I already trust if I have the choice.
DC: They will be motivated to offer you the best deal.
Caller: Will they offer the same rates?
Tony: They should do. Here’s something I’ve lived all my life: Nothing beats a failure buy a try.
DC: What would the gentleman say? What do you mean – where we are now?
Caller: If he were talking to us now, what would he say?
DC: He has been actie and instrumental in the process for a long time, including his team. Unfortunately, I don’t think he will ge ta lot of credit for what he has done, but that is his choice and it’s a noble thing. He would tell you to pay it forward and be careful.
Caller: A lot of small towns are struggling with their libraries, pools, infrastructure; we will start supporting things here at home and then spread out to others.
DC: We are laughing at “elder statesman” and I’ve been told that ‘accomplished’ is the better word than ‘elder’. Oh, gosh!
609 caller: I didn’t catch the beginning of the call; could you just rehash the GOI bit?
DC: The GOI was seated an announced yesterday and today, and people are prepared for the change in value very soon. It’s been on television, online, newspapers and on the mosque news boards.
Caller: Are they having a government-imposed holiday this Monday, and if so, why?
DC: They really know how to relax and the reason is obvious.
650 caller: DC, since this is a parliamentary democracy, what day did they actually vote to seat this government?
DC: I would say over a week ago.
Caller: Do they usually do things in parliament to do things not in public?
DC: No, they held it up by request of their international friends.
Tony: Many contacted me because of the guy on the last call who sees things in black and white. In Iraq they do things in the dark of night, so that they are not public, so that people cannot anticipate everything in the government or the currency. Many agreements have been made, and they will come out at the same time or within 24 hours of each other. Nobody thinks they actually spent all night voting on all this stuff. They are just saving it for the opportune time just before or after the RV. That’s the nicest way I can put it.
Caller: Most central banks are owned privately and therefore answer to other powers than their governments. Is the CBI a government organ? How has ownership?
DC: Ownership and control are two different things. Control is by the Governor of the bank who is appointed by the government. Like in the US, there is a lot of vetting: do they have the right background, education, deals, etc. Plus they don’t report to the PM on a daily basis. It’s supposed to be independent, and Dr. Shabibi has done very well considering what he had to deal with.
Caller: We have seen ownership influence in other central banks. For instance, the Fed is privately owned, and that means it acts in certain ways we are not aware of. I want to make sure that the CBI really answers to the government and people of Iraq.
Tony: The question you are asking is in Google, and you’ll see 173 have some kind of relationship, if that is what you are looking for.
Caller: So as of today, you still don’t know if you will receive packages and be able to communicate with us?
DC: That is correct. It’s changed so many times that right now we do not know.
404 caller: What are the celebrations going to be like on the US side? Do you know who from the US will be at the Iraqi celebrations?
DC: On the US side, we don’t know. Some would like to underplay this, but Iraq is having a great time! I probably shouldn’t answer for the US presence in Iraq.
404 caller: Does the Bretton Woods meeting have anything to do with this?
DC: My understanding that they may do an after-action report and clean up a few things, but everything else will be done by then.
Caller: [appreciation] DC, I think the NDA is part for you DNA by now!
678 caller: With respect to the dong, is there any particular note you can take into exchange without an appointment? I’ve heard about the dinar but now the dong.
Tony: You may be able to walk into a bank and exchange, or you may have to have an appointment because that department will be so busy. Ask when you call the 800 number; they should be able to let you know.
443 caller: This sure has been an educational process for them as well as us. Now it’s so close, we start cramming for it again, getting all our notes together.
Tony: It’s just like that exam – once you sit down, it will come back to you.
Caller; Once this goes live and if you sign your NDA and cannot give us any more information, will you at least be able to tell us the RV has gone live?
Tony: I think we’re going to be able to do that, at least one call, if it’s just ‘here is the information and go from there.” I don’t know about the 7-14 day thing right now. But they know we are the largest group and we will have a way to communicate with you.
Caller: So you might not be able to go over the process, but I assume you will get the 800 numbers at least?
Tony; Even if we do the 7-14 days, we will only be discussing the technicalities of the process. They don’t want us to tell you what to do, because that will muddy the waters. They will need the initial call so that people know it’s real, because a lot of people trust in what we say. DC?
DC: Bottom line is, we have heard so many variations of the process, with one set wanting us to be involved and other group not wanting us to be involved at all. The most recent deal is for us to do a ‘goodbye’ call with the 800 numbers, the website where you can get more information and that’s it. They could change that again at the last minute and have us do the 7-14 days. In my opinion, it will all be anticlimactic and easy – you’ll be through the cattle chute and out the door in 20 minutes. It’ll be easy.
Caller: That is my prayer, that it will be easy and fair. Have they given you any leads about where we can get any further information, if they don’t let you do the calls? How will they communicate with us and keep us informed about the process.
DC: We have been promised that they will let us point you in the right direction at least. We just want everyone to get this done as uneventfully as possible.
Caller: We’ve been talking about how we will pay this forward. I want to start a life coaching practice and natural energy sources. I’m an Air Force vet, and I want to help other vets on their feet with some skill sets so they can get a life for themselves. Something like 20-30% of vets are homeless. I’m still figuring out some other programs for vets out here who are suffering from post-traumatic stress, and they need some help to get their lives back on track. Do you know what our administration has in mind.
DC: There are hundreds of humanitarian projects: waters wells in Africa, vaccinations in India, to reading materials where they are needed. There are buckets of money set aside for so many projects that are set up and ready to go. They will funnel money into those from the exchanges and we will all see many more charities will be funded. That is already set up with directors and staff and plans to use the money well.
Tony: Pam is sending me nasty stares through the phone, telling me that it’s time. DC? It’s a holiday weekend, start of a new life, a vacation forever, hopefully.
DC: I hope everyone has the best Labor Day weekend. Iraq did announce the GOI through all news sources, and have in the process of executing the change of value and the celebrations of the RV, right now as we speak. The expectation is that the RV is coming up shortly behind, with the US and the world ready to handle exchanges. Be patient and flexible because there are changes, but we will help as much as we can. I’m excited and pumped about the actions being taken in Iraq right now!
Pam: DC is pretty excited, so that tells you a lot. I want to thank our Mods, transcribers, intel team, so many amazing people who have helped us and you. Also, you have no idea what our families continue to go through for your benefit. After this happens, you probably won’t hear from us because of the NDA, so remember if anyone sends you anything that claims to be from Tony, DC, Ray or anyone on this site, we would not sell your details to anyone, so it’s not from us!
Ray: Well, we know how Pam feels about that DNA! I would give you two musical hints: Green Light and Really Gonna Miss You, Folks.
Tony: This is a special day. We actually heard Pam cuss on the call. This is all about Iraq, the announcements they made today and throughout the weekend, they and we are expecting great changes. When you get the tweet – we’ll send it out, and we will have some kind of contact. This is the last call about it happening, and the next one will be about ‘I’m glad it happened!’ Use the information on the board. I know you will hear things after the call, and a lot of it should be positive things that have happened in Iraq – announcements and things on their television. Monday is a holiday, and Tuesday will be a new beginning. If anything happens before then, we will send out a tweet. Enjoy the rest of your day.
