I come to you today to give you a recent update on the election process and how this relates towards the international rollout of the IQD for Iraq.
Note: If you have not read my previous news letter from Tuesday 9/2, I encourage you to first read it (LINK). Today's news letter, as in all my news letters, is a continuation of the ongoing saga of the IQD RV process.
Today is Wednesday 9/3 and we still look forward to the “formal” announcement of the fully formed government of Iraq.
The National Alliance in the early hours of Tuesday morning, yesterday, said in a statement to the press in Iraq that the next few days will see the choice of ministerial cabinet; it will be presented to the House of Representatives, and they will vote on them. This coming announcement will include the Prime Minister, the names of his deputy and vice president of the House of Representatives and the Republic, as well as all the names of his ministries. Then it is final. Then they can get down to work.
So it still looks like they are on course to meet this Thursday’s 9/4 target date, as they previously said they would accomplish. Could it be delayed? If it does get delayed for some reason there is still the constitutional deadline of next Tuesday 9/9 to be concerned about.
So what might cause any delay? Moussawi said in a statement to the press there was a proposal that was studied yesterday to reduce the Vice-Presidents of the government to less than three. He added that there is also still some last minute opportunities being given to express any issues or opinions about the selected “Deputy” Prime Minister of the Minister of Defense, Interior Minister, or any of any Minister of the Cabinet. I have not heard of any issues that came up from so far in these discussions so I suspect all went well.
So yesterday and today there are still ongoing meetings of the leaders of the National Alliance followed by meetings with the other political blocs to put the finishing touches on the new government and submitted of it to Parliament by Thursday. If issues should arise the announce could be postponed again, however based on what I have said in my last news letter I know they are really pushing for conclusion by Thursday. Just have to make everyone happy first.
Here is the breakdown again of the ministries by bloc/party/sec:
Shia - share of the National Alliance, in the next government will be 17 ministeries;
Kurdistan Alliance 7 bags, including the Iraqi Oil Ministry (makes total sense to me);
Sunnia - Union of National Forces 6 Ministries;
Coalition of Forces - Ministry of the Interior;
Sovereign Ministries – the National Alliance will take the defense, finance and foreign affairs ministries.
I am also hearing rumors that the CBI governor may be replaced shortly as Abdul Basit Turki is retiring. There are lots of questions in this matter. Lets look at this and see if it will effect the upcoming RV.
First question I must ask is why now? Something is brewing in the CBI and it is connected with going forward with funding for the economic projects, one of which is the currency reforms. What we do know for sure is Shabibi was going to RV the currency in the summer of 2012 and Maliki wanted to use it as leverage and wanted to stop it.
So today we heard in the news the Council of Ministers voted for assuming, Ali al-Allaq, with the post of the proxy governor of the Central Bank of Iraq.
Does this news sound fishy to you? So what council of ministers? Abadi’s new cabinet is not yet seated thus not yet a working cabinet and have no jurisdiction to vote on anything. This is according to their own constitution.
Are they talking about the outgoing council of ministers, Maliki’s government?
It can’t be this council either since they are not allowed to make such decisions as an interim government. This too is according to their own constitution.
So is this false information? What is going on here? Or is Maliki attempting to place the new CBI governor as a power play for influence this office so he can manipulate it in the future? This too would be ridiculous but with Maliki we never know.
Anyhow I am hearing that Turki did submit his resignation. This we do know for sure. What we don’t know is why and why all of a sudden now. Could it be that the shenanigans are about to come out with the December 2012 CBI corruption scandal and Turki wants out now? Or could it be that Turki wanted to RV the currency now and Maliki once again wants to use it as hostage to get what he wants? So the solution for him was to sack Turki, make it look like a retirement resignation, and then put another puppet in the position to do your bidding.
In the news a couple candidate names have come forward but nothing is definite. This was late breaking news so I am investigating this now. As usual there are going to be lots and lots of rumors about this topic so be clear on what you believe. I always thought Shabibi would be cleared of any wrong doing and return to the CBI as the governor once the Maliki government was gone. I am still strongly hanging on to my conviction in this matter.
Another Maliki Shenanigan ?
As you may already know the Iraq Air defense base of Speicher, encountered one of the fiercest and most bloody crimes that ever occurred in the modern world, where the oldest people belonging to tribes in Salahuddin province were executed. The total came to 1,700 deaths. This was done as part of a security element. This was believed to be for sectarian reasons and may have direct ties to the Maliki government by allowing it to happen. It is now sure if he actually orchestrated it at this time.
The families of the victims protested the base Speicher earlier on Tuesday, near the gate of the Green Zone, demanding to know the fate of their children, as they threatened to storm the parliament building. An investigation is underway and so far the names of the perpetrators have been listed. Also Maliki has been called before the new parliament to discuss this matter. This interrogation is scheduled for today.
So today’s news is all excellent once again as we continue down the road of success for forming the new Iraq government. The news this week is overwhelming and I tried to sort out the garbage and bring to you the pertinent information.
THE ANNOUNCEMENT IS STILL ON TARGET FOR THURSDAY !
So this week so far we got the list of the distribution of the ministers. Now we need the names of the ministers associated with these positions.
The stage is now set for this to occur. We know there are many other meetings outside of Iraq scheduled for this week and they are pushing to have this government fully seated going into these meetings.
Once again Iraq witnessed another tragedy and senseless loss of lives in the recent Speicher base killings. We can see this senseless killing will not stop until Maliki and his goons are totally gone from Iraq. With the bombing of the mosque a couple weeks ago we can clearly see the evidence of him once again attempting to stir up sectarian violence. This is the only way these would be dictators can gain power and hold on to it. Looking at this senseless killings one can’t help but think also about the spiritual side. There is underlying evil plot, plain and simple involved in this man. As I have said in the past this is very scary stuff we are witnessing– if the devil did incarnate as a human being it surely would be Maliki and quite possibly is. I have never seen such a lack of compassion and lack of concern for human lives and suffering since Hitler and WWII.
Then when can we expect the RV?
All I will say is what I have been saying all along we wait for a formal (global) announcement to the public that the Iraq government is now fully formed and seated. Many of you asked me if a formal, public announcement is necessary and the answer is a big fat YES.
I want to emphasize once again this final announcement of the IQD going international will not happen until the USA feels the Iraq government is stable, non-sectarian and is a functional government. This is has been the plan all along. They may have wavered a bit on how the plan was implemented but the overall plan guidelines have not changed.
I do not come to you to bash anyone but it is effecting my readers too since I get the overspill of questions and emails on this topic. So I will address it.
Some may be telling you its going to RV anytime now or it should have RV’d over the holiday weekend and was held up once again. Really? The fact is, it never was intended to RV and could not have RV’d. As I have said many, many times the USA holds the trigger (the final rollout piece) and will not let this go until they have complete assurance of the needed requirements to let it go. So these intel gurus once again are wrong and will continue to be wrong. They do not question their sources and just publish, as puppets, what they are being told. They have been compromised. They have a large crowd of followers and they claim their leader is never wrong. Really? The same drama plays out weekend after weekend, day after day and still no RV, but they are never wrong? Am I missing something?
Peace and Luv To Ya All,
