IQD News Update (RANT #65)


17  CitiBank N.A  Baghdad /Al Mansoor /Al Ameerat Street

Manu68:  Very interesting.. why open one in a country that has a toilet paper currency?

StephenMac63:  Especially after claiming the IQD was a scam  (wink)

Frank26:  DELTA .................. LAST ONE ..........DONE......... BRIDGED. 
PS ............. LOL .............. THEY NEVER GOT THE MEMO .............. THAT IT'S A SCAM !!!  (ROFL)
SteelyJan:  Good Friday Kona! Here's a Friday funny ... maybe even cause you to pause and ... LOL

So why did the chicken cross the road?

SARAH PALIN: The chicken crossed the road because, gosh-darn it, he's a maverick!

BARACK OBAMA: Let me be perfectly clear, if the chickens like their eggs they can keep their eggs. No chicken will be required to cross the road to surrender her eggs. Period.

JOHN McCAIN: My friends, the chicken crossed the road because he recognized the need to engage in cooperation and dialogue with all the chickens on the other side of the road.

HILLARY CLINTON: What difference at this point does it make why the chicken crossed the road?

GEORGE W. BUSH: We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road or not. The chicken is either with us or against us. There is no middle ground here.

DICK CHENEY: Where's my gun?

BILL CLINTON: I did not cross the road with that chicken.

AL GORE: I invented the chicken.... and the road.

JOHN KERRY: Although I voted to let the chicken cross the road, I am now against it! It was the wrong road to cross, and I was misled about the chicken's intentions. I am not for it now, and will remain against it.

AL SHARPTON: Why are all the chickens white?

DR. PHIL: The problem we have here is that this chicken won't realize that he must first deal with the problem on this side of the road before it goes after the problem on the other side of the road. What we need to do is help him realize how stupid he is acting by not taking on his current problems before adding any new problems.

OPRAH: Well, I understand that the chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross the road so badly. So instead of having the chicken learn from his mistakes and take falls, which is a part of life, I'm going to give this chicken a NEW CAR so that he can just drive across the road and not live his life like the rest of the chickens.

ANDERSON COOPER: We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed to have access to the other side of the road.

NANCY GRACE: That chicken crossed the road because he's guilty! You can see it in his eyes and the way he walks.

PAT BUCHANAN: To steal the job of a decent, hardworking American.

MARTHA STEWART: No one called me to warn me which way the chicken was going. I had a standing order at the Farmer's Market to sell my eggs when the price dropped to a certain level. No little bird gave me any insider information.

DR SEUSS: Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes, the chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed I've not been told.

ERNEST HEMINGWAY: To die in the rain, alone.

GRANDPA: In my day we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough for us.

DONALD TRUMP: We should build a wall so the chicken can't cross the road.

BARBARA WALTERS: Isn't that interesting? In a few moments, we will be listening to the chicken tell, for the first time, the heartwarming story of how it experienced a serious case of molting, and went on to accomplish its lifelong dream of crossing the road.

ARISTOTLE: It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.

BILL GATES: I have just released eChicken2014, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents and balance your checkbook. Internet Explorer is an integral part of eChicken2014. This new platform is much more stable and will never reboot.

ALBERT EINSTEIN: Did the chicken really cross the road, or did the road move beneath the chicken?

COLONEL SANDERS: Did I miss one?


Fuze:  Hello TNT...on Tuesday of last week, I called my local foreign currency branch, of the "lead bank", I'm in the southeast USA. I called to inquire about purchasing a little more vnd and rupiah.

The foreign currency teller who is very familiar with me as a customer of previous purchases; explained that she could see the current rates (same old rates, she's a foreign currency teller only), however, she said we can't transact any exchanges due to a "system change over".

She said we should be back up and running Friday the 19th, so call or come in and I'll place your order. Of course I asked is it just your branch? She said no, it's bank wide. She then volunteered, "but i don't think it's a rate change".

Well I called today, she was out on break so her manager took the call
The manager informed me they were notified last night that bank wide the systems will be back up, this coming Tuesday. She then aploigized and said teller should have notified me.

Has anyone else had this experience, with WF. Remember one of the bank stories from last week, where a member was told by some rather obscure branch manager in a Walmart Store, who said to the member, I'll see you on the 24th?

Is it possible, the little guy got it right? The 23rd, 24th? Time will tell..


Tishwash:  McGurk praises ‘serious dialogue’ between Erbil-Baghdad, talks elections with Barzani

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region (Kurdistan 24) – US envoy Brett McGurk commended efforts by the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and the Federal Government of Iraq in holding talks to resolve their disputes peacefully.

KRG Prime Minister, Nechirvan Barzani, received US Special Envoy for the Global Coalition against the Islamic State (IS) Brett McGurk this week, alongside Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Andrew Peek, US Ambassador to Iraq Douglas Silliman and the Consul General to Erbil, Ken Gross.

The American delegation praised the easing of tensions and positive discussions between Erbil and Baghdad, and stressed “their support for serious dialogue between both sides,” according to the KRG press office.

The delegation also expressed their support for the Kurdistan Region, the political process, and elections in the region.

Barzani highlighted the significant role the US-led coalition plays in the fight against IS. He underlined the importance of the coalition engaging in efforts to bring Erbil and Baghdad together and address their outstanding issues, the KRG’s press office stated.

The Kurdish Premier noted that all political parties in the Kurdistan Region are in agreement to hold elections in the region in the coming months.

Bilateral relations between Erbil and Washington, DC and the latest developments in the country were other topics discussed during the meeting.

Iraq plans to hold elections in May, but multiple parties in the country have called for the postponement of the elections, namely Sunni blocs in Baghdad.

“The necessary conditions for holding elections—including the return of displaced people, stabilization and security in liberated areas to create an election atmosphere, and the return of weapons to the state—have not been met in the Sunni-populated governorates,” one of the largest Sunni blocs in the Iraqi Parliament said on Thursday.

The US Embassy in Baghdad on Thursday issued a statement which stood at odds with the Sunni bloc and sided with Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi as Washington opposes the postponement of Iraq’s elections.

“The US government strongly supports the Iraqi national elections in May 2018 in line with Iraq’s constitution,” a statement released by the embassy read.

“The postponement of the elections will set a dangerous precedent, undermine the constitution, and harm the long-term democratic development of Iraq,” it added.

The Kurdistan Region is also planning to hold elections before May, but a date is yet to be determined.

Trump ANTICIPATED most if not all of what's happening.

2. I'm reading some nervous #MAGA fans saying that his enemies will strike, in order to distract or dilute the impact of what's coming.

For example, that Mueller may bring indictments against Trump & Co forward.

3. Please understand and be reassured - even if true, Trump would have predicted it, then formulated a response, predicted the reaction to his response, then formulated a response for THAT reaction.

They CANNOT beat him, as he has then covered in every foreseeable angle.

4. We have seen him do this to his enemies time and time again. They are baffled. They've never seen anyone like him.

We're not talking about an ordinary human being here. Trump's a genuinely extraordinary person.

5. Remember, we have a man who has been planning this Presidency for at least 30 years. And by plan, I mean DETAILED planning. Everything you are seeing now was planned at least 18-24 months ago.

The probable release of this memo?

6. It would have been planned over a year ago.

Because Trump has ALWAYS had all the evidence. Since the start. Who brought down Weinstein / Hollywood? Trump. Who is taking down FakeNews and dirty Dems? Trump. Who will smash the GOPe? Trump.

You connecting the dots?

7. His smart enemies know this and have walked away. Trump's a Sun Tzu master - if you give up the fight, bend the knee and walk away quietly, he will leave you alone.

But there are also stupid enemies, who believe they can win a fight they have ALREADY lost.

8. Obama is one, as is Hillary. Interestingly, Trump offered Clinton a fig leaf very early in his Presidency (it may have been before the inauguration, forgive me but I am exhausted and can't recall).

She didn't take it. VERY stupid decision.

9. Sun Tzu was very clear that the supreme leader goes into war knowing it is already won. The aim is NOT to cause damage or kill. You want to take the enemy's empire whole and undamaged.

Therefore, the aim is to break the enemy's will, to avoid fighting.

10. However, sometimes an enemy will not bend the knee. In that situation, Sun Tzu's advice becomes much darker. They must be crushed, utterly wiped out - and as publicly as possible.

'Hold out baits to entice the enemy. Feign disorder, and crush him.'

11. The Clinton & Obama gangs chose to resist and fight. Trump would respect that, but that won't prevent the outcome.

For there will be no mercy in their downfall. Their defeat WILL be TOTAL and BRUTAL.

They chose poorly. VERY poorly.


The end.
