For Those Who Know Bruce
Many folks from TNT know Bruce from "The Big Call". He is a great man and has plans to start a retreat network for injured veterans across the country.
He does not consider himself a guru; he merely recaps things that he sees and hears.
On Monday, Bruce's wife had a medical issue that placed her in a coma.
Despite hours of attempts to resusciatate her, she was non-responsive and was taken off life support yesterday.
Please remember Bruce at this difficult time in your thoughts and prayers. Bruce also has medical challenges, but remains a positive, upbeat individual.
DSM: INTERESTING STATEMENT ON FOX NEWS THIS A.M.
I was watching Fox News this morning and they switched to the lady that reports on "the market". In her report, she brought up the news about Scotland voting today on becoming independent. She briefly made the statement "if they did, it could effect the worlds currencies". Just another "hint" things might be changing for the "public ears" to hear?
[EvangeeGT] Walked into a TD bank today and asked to speak to someone that deals in international currency? She said, do you want the manager? I said no, I don't want to waste his nor my time? She asked me how much and what is my currency? I told her Dinnar & Dong.
She asked me how much I have and I said, enough! She went on to say that the give preferred rates and I said, I am looking for the contract rate with the NDA! She responded with a smile like she knew what I was speaking about?
Then she told me in order to get that rate you need to go to an off site office not here? Got the Wealth Managers card and awaiting his call! Wow!
[EvangeeGT] The above is for the Canadians
Ishman: IS SOMETHING BREWING FOR THE WEEKEND OF SEP 19-21?
Having read through news posts and blogs this morning, there seem to be a couple of items which make me believe this weekend could in fact be in play...
1. Abadi's GOI is formed and has been internationally recognized.
2. Tony & DC have stated repeatedly the Defense and Interior Ministers are seated and doing their jobs... though there appears to be some form of delay of public acknowledgement of same.
3. Tony & DC have shared considerable detail on the process and progress from "East to West" regarding the RV release process having been initiated again.
4. There are numerous pressure points pushing the RV toward release: the needs of Iraqi citizens and resistance to ISIS, stability and economic reform requirements for US / Euro / ME alliance and support, Paris Club payments due, Iraq establishing true sovereign nation status, long overdue infrastructure construction, oil, gas & mineral development, and a massive military & security build-up of personnel, training and equipping -- including heavy armament, communication and air power.
5. Abadi needs to show himself strong enough to overcome Maliki's interference in the seating of Interior and Defense Ministers. (Pres Obama would seem to have a vested interest in backing Abadi in this exercise of authority.)
6. There are reports of Parliament (publicly) meeting as soon as Sat, Sep 20.
7. Sec'y of State Kerry is chairing a UN meeting tonight and seeking UN "authority" to form a coalition to use force against ISIS/ISIL/Daash.
8. It is rumored, Pres Obama will be visiting the ME to assemble a ME coalition as a key part of the alliance against ISIS/ISIL/Daash, beginning with a stop in Baghdad.
So, could the (public) Parliamentary approval come together during a Sat meeting, while Pres Obama is visiting Baghdad and making promises of US military assistance and aid to Iraq, with the RV released as markets will have closed on Fri, and exchange rates would be "fixed" over the weekend until FOREX opens Sun at 12 midnight GMT?
Seems like a cover of chaos just prior to and surrounding initiation of the RV process just might make sense. I hope so.
