The Truth About The Global Currency Reset

01gcrvidI really have been sick and tired of all the fear mongering. Everyone seems to be using fear to sell gold, silver, newsletters, food supplies, and yes, even dinars. The typical sales pitch goes something like this. The world is going to end and the dollar is going to be worthless so buy my products and protect yourself against the coming calamity.

Just today I was on face book and I saw an ad from some group that said something like this. Don’t rejoice over the falling gas prices. The last time gas prices were this low was during the 2008 meltdown. This information was put out there to imply that there is another calamity around the corner. You needed to get their information to help prepare for what was on the horizon. I don’t even know what these people were selling.

The truth is this information is wrong. Soaring gas prices accelerated the 2008 meltdown. In January of 2007 oil was a little over 49 dollars a barrel. Prices broke 50 dollars that year and got up over 70 dollars a barrel. This is when the housing market started to show cracks. Oil prices accelerated in 2008 and by June the price peaked at over 149 dollars a barrel. By this time, the meltdown was in full swing. In September the market crashed and as a result oil fell to under 36.00 a barrel. As of this writing oil is a little over 49.00 a barrel.

Yet someone is using the low gas prices in the autumn of 2008 to spark fear so people will buy their worthless products. This is my biggest grip with the Global Currency Reset. There are so many different definitions and scenarios that the subject can really be confusing. I can’t even enjoy low gas prices without someone attempting to scare the crap out of me with their wrong geo-political analysis. While I have my own theories as to why gas prices are this low, many people are being scared needlessly just so that scammers can hock their worthless products!

So in an attempt to provide some sort of sanity, I wrote a book that deals with the fear mongering. This book is available on Amazon and soon it will be available at every eBook retailer’s site. It is called “The Truth About The Global Currency Reset”

06 GCR-mockup6From information I received from many who preach this coming reset I assembled a timeline. I made a video about this timeline and uploaded it to you tube. According to the many things I have read, the historic past of currency is part of the reason for this coming reset. For this reason I lined up every event that I could think of so people can see the first part of the timeline that will be part of the GCR event.

You can read the first chapter of the book for free at Smashwords. Click on the Online reader. Here is the link.

You can buy the book at Smashwords or Amazon. Here is the link

While this book deals with the global currency reset it also covers many other conspiracy theories regarding money. We learn a great deal about America’s monetary history. We also get a basic understanding of how money and economics work. Even though the dinar is not the main theme of this book, there is one chapter that gives the historic background for the dinar. The dinar is also mentioned in a few other chapters. There is a complete analysis regarding this currency and many others.

The object and purpose of this book is to deal directly with all the fear mongering. It is my hope that those who are living in bondage due to wild conspiracy theories will be set free once they understand the truth.

The Iraqi Dinar Scam

The Iraqi Dinar Scam

There comes a time when the facts are gathered and weighed in the balance. Opinions become validated or invalidated by the facts that support your point of view. I have said that the Iraqi dinar is a scam. Many people have disagreed with me. Now it seems that the state of Oklahoma has issued a warning regarding this currency back in 2012.

“Oklahoma residents have been offered unsubstantiated claims for extraordinary returns on Iraqi Dinar investments. High pressure sales techniques are used when offering the investment including stating this is a time sensitive investment that requires immediate action. The majority of these investments result in the Oklahoma investor’s complete loss of principal.”

“Irving L. Faught, Administrator of the Commission urges investors to learn the warning signs of investment fraud and independently verify any investment opportunity as well as the background of the person and company offering the investment. The Commission provides detailed background information about those who sell securities or give investment advice, as well as whether the products being offered are registered transactions. Visit the Commission website,, to check out the registration of a broker-dealer, investment adviser or investment products.”

Washington State issued a similar warning in 2011 part of which says,

“Several websites have recently begun advertising investment opportunities in Iraqi Dinars, the currency of Iraq. These websites are asking the consumers to send a check, wire, money order, or pay cash upon delivery of the Dinars. What consumers are not told is that the Dinars can be redeemed only in Iraq, as most of the established currency exchange houses and banking institutions cannot convert the Dinar to US dollars. Since no exchange exists for the Iraqi Dinar, dealers can charge whatever they want to sell and buy back the Dinars.”

Banks stopped selling the dinar at the beginning of 2011 following Wells Fargo’s purchase of foreign currency exchange in Ireland. Now the only place left to purchase the dinar is directly from the dealers. Forbes even calls this investment a Scam

There is a lot more evidence posted throughout this blog that shows that any investment in this currency is indeed a scam. Yet that does not seem to matter. Many people are willing to use emotion and hope to hold on to something that is not real in order to face tough times. Many people who invested are down on their luck. This investment seems to be their last hope and they become emotionally attached. You can’t use logic and reason with people who did not use logic and reason to arrive at their point of view.

Forbes even calls out investors for not being transparent

What can be done for the people who invested in this worthless paper?

As I have said in the past, I believe that if Iraq does redenominate that the dealers would vanish. They would be gone. I caught heat from many people for this point of view. My reasoning was due to the legal process. I reasoned that many people would figure out that they were taken advantage of. If the dealers began to get a lot of lawsuits, they would just close up shop and vanish. I think legally they would be held liable in both criminal and civil cases. This would be their motivation.

I have read on some forums were people have physically threatened those who sell dinar if they found out they were lying. So all this would provide the motive for the dealers to close shop. Now it seems that information has been collected for class action lawsuits against dealers and forums alike. If you are stuck holding dinar or if you took a loss you can now join the class action process. If the lawyers get enough people to sign up they will pursue the case. Here is a link to sign up.

For more information about this visit this link

By now most government agencies are calling this a scam and you have a right to file a complaint with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

People send me many stories about their experience with the dinar. This investment has caused more divorces and broken homes then I can count. Usually a spouse gets carried away with the get rich quick promises and believes the dinar is a sure thing. They tend to go overboard and sell everything they can get their hands on just to buy even more dinar. Why do people believe the dinar is a sure thing? They get this impression from different forums on the internet. Apparently, this link above is seeking information about dinar forums too.

So if you have been a victim of the Iraqi dinar investment you can now file a complaint and register to take part in a class action civil law suit. If you have not invested in the dinar but suffered the consequences from a family member investing in the dinar I would encourage you to tell your story as well. Was the Iraqi dinar the reason for your divorce? You would be surprised at just how many marriages were broken up as a result of a spouse going off the deep end! You can even use the form on this site to tell me your story as well. everything is kept confidential and I don’t sell or share any information. Many people have told me their story and that action has encouraged me to keep this site going. here is the link.

Book Update

Progress is being made on the book. It is finished and the cover is done. The final proofreading is almost complete. After that the copyright process starts. I will keep you posted as I get closer to release. Although the focus of this book is not the dinar it is used as an example to explain a few things. There is a whole chapter dedicated to the dinar and it is mentioned throughout the last part of the book.

Another Chapter In The Dinar Saga

Another Chapter In The Dinar Saga

I know it has been a while since I wrote anything about the dinar. I had many other projects that demanded my attention. I redesigned my music site and I am still working on it. I have been shooting videos and playing gigs, but perhaps the most time-consuming projects for me is my writing. I have been writing a book since September of 2014. It should be available sometime after the first of the year.

My experience with the dinar has implanted me with a new device. I am the proud owner of a shiny brand new BS meter. I don’t take things people say at face value anymore. If anyone says anything that even remotely sounds like B.S. I either ignore it or vet it. If it cannot be vetted I call B.S. on the statement. I found that there is so much BS in the world today that I don’t even have the time to vet everything.

I just don’t vet things that people claim. I vet and checkout things found in documentaries and movies based on true events. If I even smell the slightest bit of B.S. I begin to do keyword searches in Google and Bing. I have found that there are some things in documentaries that I watch on Net Flix that are false and politically motivated. I love Net Flix and there is some great content, but now I even check that information.

My experience with the dinar has got me to questioned everything to a much larger degree then I ever did before. It is not that I am cynical, it is just that I am a lot more cautious. I am no longer willing to take people’s word for the things they say or give people the benefit of the doubt. The truth is out there and in the days of the information age, the answers can be found quickly.

What amazes me more than anything else is all the conspiracy theories that involve money. There are a lot of them out there and I use to believe most of them until my research showed me otherwise. I am not just talking about the dinar at this point. There are conspiracy theories about events that happened hundreds of years ago. They are all over the internet and they exist on a lot of different blogs and websites. Let me give you a few examples.

Alexander Hamilton

Conspiracy theorist claim that Alexander Hamilton was a Rothschild agent. He worked on behalf of this family. They claim that he married into this family. Here is the truth about Hamilton’s in-laws. His father in law, Philip Schuyler, was a General during the Revolutionary War, while his mother-in-law Catherine conducted a scorched earth policy to deprive the British of food. He never married into the Rothschild family

The main problem with this theory is that the house of Rothschild was not setup until 1776. This is the same year America declared independence. They did not become a major player in the banking system until the 1800’s Alexander Hamilton argued on behalf of the first central bank long before this. It was signed into law by George Washington in 1791. Although it is possible for the Rothschild family to have a degree of controlling interest in the first central bank, Hamilton never married into the family and had no influence on behalf of that family. The time line does not match up.

It is said that Nathan Rothschild, of the Bank of England, issued this ultimatum at the end of the charter for the first national bank: “Either the application for the renewal of the charter is granted, or the United States will find itself involved in a most disastrous war.” As a result of not renewing this charter we entered the war of 1812.

The first problem is this quote cannot be sourced from any of the writings of that period. There is no historical record of that quote. The second problem is that history itself tells a different story. America declared war on England and started the war of 1812. It was not the other way around. The main reason for this is due to the fact that England tried to impose trade restrictions between America and France because of a war that England was fighting with France. It had nothing to do with a central banking system. England did not attack America first and they did not go to war with America until after America declared war with them.

There are many more conspiracies. One popular conspiracy seems to be that J.P. Morgan started the bankers panic of 1907 and that Woodrow Wilson later regretted signing the legislation that led to the Federal Reserve. There are too many of these conspiracies to list in one blog posting but there are many of them out there.

I at one time believed all of them. When I got involved with the dinar I began to research economics and money. I came across many of these theories. I included them in my dinar analysis. I believed they were true just like I believed that the dinar would one day revalue. At that point in my life I was naive and I had a lot to learn about money!

There are many unsourced quotes and parts of quotes taken out of context. Partial quotes are blended together with other partial quotes to arrive at different meanings in an effort to substantiate many conspiracies. Perhaps the strangest quote I found was this one. It was on Facebook the other day.

“You cannot trust any quote you see on the internet” -Abraham Lincoln

The book I have been writing deals with all these conspiracy theories. It explains how economics and money actually work. It goes into the actual history that will prove many of these conspiracies wrong. All the quotes found in the book have been sourced from actual historical documents. There is a chapter about the dinar and how it came to be the number one conspiracy theory about money on the internet today. I also talk about some of the B.S. gold and silver people put out there.

I should say at this point that I do have gold and silver. I have precious metal investments. Nevertheless, there is a lot of hype and untruthful things said in an effort to increase sales. The book will challenge an overnight crash to the dollar and it will present a case for the current economic system based on fact.

The last chapter in the book is nothing but links and resources where people can go to verify the things I write. This chapter will verify quotes our founding fathers actually said. I will let you know more about the book as it gets closer to the release. My target is sometime in January.

Thank You Sam I Am

Since I have changed my views regarding the dinar a lot of people who read and shared my views have said I went off the deep end. In addition to this some people have tried to discredit me by questioning my qualifications. They have called me an arm-chair economist or a person that is a guitar player and someone who knows nothing about economics. They say I just operate a blog and I have not even purchased a domain name.

This is nothing new and I am use to this kind of criticism. However, to those people who say these things I would like to point out that you don’t know me. You don’t know what my qualifications are. You presume too much, which is why you invested in the dinar in the first place.

I have worked for a fortune 500 company for the past 23 + years. I have investments in the stock market and I have a diversified portfolio. I have intensely studied economics a little over four years. I have completed college courses on-line and even earned credits. I am not some disgruntled dinar investor looking to get even. My only quest is for the truth and I still have a lot of unanswered questions. Oh yeah, and I also play guitar.

It has been my experience that when I debate people we talk about facts. But people who have an opinion different then what the facts present resort to different tactics. If the facts don’t support their beliefs they either change their belief or they personally attack the person who uses the facts.

A thread developed over in the DV forum where someone asked a question about my last post. This person asked if anything written in that post was true. Instead of addressing the things I wrote about or disproving the things I said, there was an effort to discredit my qualifications. None of the links I provided to support my conclusions and none of the things I actually said were ever addressed.

The person who actually posted the question took their disqualifying efforts as a satisfactory answer. This is a cheap political ploy and the facts were not addressed. I will gladly debate anyone at any time about the revalue of the Iraqi dinar. In fact I am setting up a way to do that. I will give you more information as I get closer but this new way of internet communication will be more interactive than a conference call.

Sam I Am over at Dinar Douchebags has stuck up for me. He points out that the facts were never brought up or even discussed in that thread. So I would like to thank him for addressing the real issues. Thank you Sam for defending me, for pursuing truth, for sticking to the issues, and for having one of the best dinar sites on the internet. Read his post here

Trials For Dinar Holders

ISIS Leader

People have not always agreed with my analysis and that is OK. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. There have been several things that I have been saying over the last 2 years that cause many dinar investors to doubt my opinion. But I would like to rehash a few points and put those points in a present day scenario.

I have always said that there is more currency outside of Iraq’s borders then in its borders. Iraq only has about 5 trillion dinar inside the country today. That would mean that there is a lot of excess currency presently outside the border of Iraq today. I calculated a figure of 25 trillion. I was using the difference in the currency supply going back to 2005/2006. This was a very conservative number and I gave a conservative number on purpose. In my mind I knew there was more but I would proclaim that there is at least 25 trillion dinar outside of Iraq in my posts/articles. People thought I was crazy.

The other part of the Puzzle is simply this. When dinar leaves the country it is exchanged for U.S. Dollars. This action brings U.S. dollars into Iraq as the dinar leaves. So using very rough numbers 25 trillion dinar is about 25 billion U.S. dollars. That money goes into the central bank’s reserves and it is used to back the dinar. So as the reserves grow the dinar currency supply also grows. The more dinar Iraq exports the more dollars come in and this means more dinar goes into circulation to cover the gap that the exported dinar made. This has become a vicious circle and no Guru has been able to explain it.

Yet another part of this puzzle is Iraq’s currency laws. I have pointed out several times that in section 32 of Iraq’s currency laws it is illegal to export their currency outside of Iraq and that the dinar can only be used within Iraq itself. Now this is a law they do not enforce because to do so would stop the flow of U.S. dollars into Iraq’s reserve supply!

The last part of the puzzle is the redenomination that Iraq may do one day. If it happens then Iraq will not honor the currency (25 trillion) that is outside of its borders. They will only honor the money within its borders. Iraq will cite its currency laws as the reason for doing this. They will say they have every right to do this.There are no international treaties with Iraq that protects investors should the dinar redenominate. I presented links with facts throughout this site. Basically this means that Iraq will be able to keep every U.S. dollar it imported into its reserves and the central bank has a large amount of imported U.S. dollars.

I have been saying this for the last 2 years. I have said that this scam goes all the way to the top. Now I am going to sound really crazy. I would ask that you read this entire post to the end and click on the links for they will be very important in my conclusions.

I believe the Iraqi government knew all along (ever since 2004) that they were scamming the poorest of American people out of their hard earned money with the false promise of wealth. I think the highest level of government in Iraq and the central bank had this planned all along! I think they are the ones who actually set this whole thing up to begin with! I even suspect that they had help from the Coalition Provisional Authority or CPA! This is just my opinion but in my view this is the only thing that makes sense to me given Iraq’s history. These guys at the very top and at the planing stages of the new Iraqi government set this up! This explains why America has done nothing to stop this scam! Now let me show you something. Read this article from Forbes

The Dinar’s Dismal Future: Sell Now

Let me provide just two quotes

“Iraq is basically enmeshed in a brutal civil war without any cohesive social fabric to pull it back together. Except for some military advisers, the U.S. and Western powers are staying out of the country”.

“Although no regulator knows how many investors hold the dinar, Prof. Bunting estimates “that there are around 40 trillion Dinar in circulation and only about 5 trillion actually reside in Iraq so the rest is held by dinar speculators around the world”.

This means that there is much more than 25 trillion dinar outside of the borders of Iraq. According to this article there is now about 35 trillion dinar that is now outside Iraq’s border. That also means that this added well over 35 billion to Iraqi Central Bank’s reserves and this money came from people all over the world. I am willing to bet that some of the poorest of Americans sent Iraq Billions when they collectively purchased dinar from dealers.

My numbers were conservative because I did not want to overstate my case. I wanted to be as factual as I could without exaggerating numbers. But now it seems that something more serious is on the horizon. As stated by the article above, Iraq is dealing with civil war and Iraq has another serious problem too!

Syria Iraq: The Islamic State militant group

“Under its former name Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isis), it was formed in April 2013, growing out of al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI).”

“Its precise size is unclear but it is thought to include thousands of fighters, including many foreign jihadists.”

“The US said the fall of Iraq’s second city posed a threat to the entire region. It may also have made ISIS the most cash-rich militant group in the world”

“Initially, the group relied on donations from wealthy individuals in Gulf Arab states, particularly Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, who supported its fight against President Bashar al-Assad.

Today, IS is said to earn significant amounts from the oil fields it controls in eastern Syria, reportedly selling some of the supply back to the Syrian government. It is also believed to have been selling looted antiquities from historical sites.”

Remember I said earlier if Iraq redenominates? I think the current Iraqi government has planned to redenominate all along. But if the government falls then what happens to the currency? What happens if Iraq is torn apart by civil war? Here is a worst case scenario.

What happens if ISIS over takes the CBI and Gains access to their reserves? What kind of weapons could they fund with the 35 billion that everyone around the world sent Iraq because they were deceived into believing that they were going to be rich if they bought dinar?

These are interesting questions. What happens to the dinar if the government falls or if it gets divided up into sections? it may very well be that the Kurds have one region of the country and the rest is divided among Islamic factions. However if Iraq gets divided up the real question is who gets the reserves that are left over in the central bank when the current government collapses? If ISIS does gain control of the central bank it will have new found wealth to fund its war machine.

There is one last component to all of this. The dinar is exported and sold around the world even though Iraq says it is illegal to do this. Third world nations and the poorest of people have been robbed by Iraq! There are people in these countries that make so little that a major investor in this country may only be able to get one 25,000 note. Some may have One 10,000 note or even one 1,000 note.

This means that there are millions of people around the world that purchased dinar.When this thing collapses (and it will collapse) poor people who invested in the dinar around the world will be devastated. So while this country proceeds with their quest of ripping off the poorest of people around the world there are major uprisings within the nation of Iraq! This creates several scenarios that could play out.

Iraq could redenominate and make all of the currency outside of its borders null and void. Iraq could fall and the government could be divided in approximately three different ways. ISIS could gain complete control over the region and raid the reserves. I highly doubt that ISIS will have any regard for dinar investors around the world. It amazes me that people still choose to believe in this scam in light of all the evidence. The Middle East is becoming more and more dangerous. This is not a good place to invest your money!

There NEVER was a Kuwaiti Revalue

That’s the truth! There NEVER was a Kuwaiti revalue. In my last post I went into detail as to why. This was a response to an article I read on Mr. IQD’s site. I finally got a response from Mr. IQD 2 days later after I commented on his site. I just want to make some corrections in his assumptions about my motives. I am posting from his response here in this article because he has banned me from his site.

Mr. IQD “Marcus – thanks for your post – but I have decided to not approve it. I do believe that the Iraqi Dinar will eventually increase significantly in value.”

Just for the record I don’t fault you for believing the pipe dream about the Iraqi dinar revalue. You have every right to believe whatever you want.

Mr. IQD Also, I’m deleting your post because I don’t appreciate the scathing remarks you made about me and my website on another blog.

Scathing remarks? What scathing remarks?! You obviously don’t know me very well because you really have no idea how scathing my remarks can actually be. This is what I actually said.

“Now this comment is gone. For some reason it vanished. So allow me to elaborate a little more. I bought Iraqi dinar based on a lot of lies that I believed.”

Notice that I am addressing the fact that there was never a Kuwaiti Revalue not that the comment did not post. You call that scathing?


All comments on are ALWAYS “Held for Moderation” by everyone who posts on my site.”

When I posted the comment it was listed in the comment section after I sent it. I read through the whole comment after I sent it off and it was posted as an approved comment. I then refreshed the page that your article was on and my comment was still there. I did not know if you held comments for moderation but there was no “this comment is held for moderation” notice that typically appears when comments are indeed held for moderation.

Please understand I am not calling you a liar. If anything I thought it was a system glitch. The reason for my post was not to address the missing comment. It was to address the things you wrote about. There were gross misinterpretations in your post about the New York Times article. This was not an attempt to straighten out your thinking or your belief system.

When you provided wrong information that said there was a Kuwaiti Revalue I knew that would come up in the search engine. A person who knows nothing about the dinar may do a search and find your post. A person with no currency background may very well believe your post. That same person may purchase dinar based on a total BULL-CRAP belief in a Kuwaiti Revalue. I know this was the number one selling point with me. After I found out the truth I was upset with this lie. So this is a pet peeve to say the least. I was writing that post to would be dinar investors to serve as a warning and nothing more. It was not directed towards you and it was definitely not scathing.

Mr. IQD Therefore, your comments never posted in the first place, to then “vanish” later as you said.

Fair enough. Like I said maybe it was a system glitch of some sort. I don’t know why your article page showed my comment as posted. Maybe it was some bug in the system software. Not really sure.

Mr IQD I have approved your comments many times in the past, and they are still up for anyone to read – but now you will no longer be approved for ANY COMMENT you make on my site.

This is true you have approved my comments in the past. And you even disagreed with some of the things I wrote. Since I cannot reply directly on your site I decided to speak to you through this post. I know your reading this. I just want to thank you for your loyal support!

Mr. IQD What you did by blogging your immature hate comments about me and my site shows the Dinar Community that you are more like a spoiled child who always insists on getting his way!

Well, little child – you won’t get your way here anymore by throwing temper-tantrums!

Immature hate comments? Do you mean like most of your posts about Gurus? This coming from a guy who posts rants on a regular basis. You should notice that I did not resort to calling you names as you have now just done. I find that people tend to start name calling and leaving civil debate behind when they cannot address the facts. There were no hate comments in my post and for the record I don’t hate you.

I read your site because of the way you called out Tony TNT and other Gurus. I knew you still believed in this scam of an investment. But I always believed you were at least fair and sincere.

OH NO! what ever shall I do with all my free time? Mr. IQD won’t let me comment on his site anymore. Life is just not worth living anymore….No one likes being the one that tells little kids that there is no such thing as Santa Clause! This time it really cost me. What ever shall I do? Excuse my sarcasm.

OK let us get real. Your belief in the revalue of the Iraqi dinar is based on crappy speculation which comes from reading between the lines and putting meaning in news articles that is not even there. Banning me instead of discussing the facts put you on the same level of all the other Gurus you tend to criticize. This looks like hypocrisy to me. The only real ratings you got on your site was due to the fact that you went after the extreme gurus that were lying through their teeth. There is no doubt in my mind that you are sincere, but if you think you will ever make any money from this worthless paper then you are sincerely wrong and sadly mistaken.

I know that in your case it is ok if you lost everything you invested. You won’t feel the same pain that a lot of people feel because they over leveraged and sold everything they have to buy dinar. The reason people do this is because they hear Bull-Crap stories like the Kuwaiti Revalue hype and they begin to look at this investment as a sure thing. I don’t hate you. I never did. I feel sorry for you.

I will tell you what I am going to do. I will leave this open and I will not ban you as you have done me. If you feel like you want to post a comment and express the reason for your beliefs feel free to do so here. Your comments will not go into moderation. They will be posted right away. MR. IQD I believe we can have a civil discussion. The ball is now in your court!

The Kuwaiti Dinar NEVER Revalued!

Earlier today I received an email from Baghdad Invest. He left a link to an article written by Mr. IQD. After reading Mr. IQDs article I Just had to leave a comment. I came back later in the day only to find that the comment had vanished. It is missing! I don’t know what happened but I now feel a need to respond to this in an effort to set the record straight.

Mr. IQD posted an old article he found through a person who goes by the name “MyDigitalDr” Mr. IQD makes the claim that this article validates and confirms that Kuwait did indeed revalue their currency. The link to the article is found here.

Here are is a small part that was quoted by Mr. IQD

All other old dinars can be exchanged for new ones on a one-to-one rate until May 7, when the old dinars become invalid. The new official exchange rate is 3.47 American dollars for one new Kuwaiti dinar.

Mr. IQD goes on to say the following.

Now you can know with CERTAINTY that Kuwait did in fact “RV” their Currency for 3.47 KWD to $1.00 USD – and friends I’ve been searching for this fact based article for years, and poof, out of the blue, “MyDigitalDr” on LJ’s Board found it and posted it.  So, thanks to you, whoever you are.  Also, thanks to the NY Times for including it in their Archives – that is really awesome!

To those out there who claim that it is just not “possible” for Iraq’s Central Bank to “RV” the IQD because it has “never been done before” – THEN TELL THEM TO READ THIS NEW YORK TIMES ARTICLE, AND SEE HOW THEY RESPOND!!!…

Well I left a response in the form of a comment and it was rather long. I made every effort to be polite. I came back later and found that my comment was no longer there. So I will now include my original comment

The Kuwait RV was one of the reasons I invested in the dinar in the first place. It was articles like this that caused me to have confidence in my investment. On the surface this does look like an RV. But the fact remains that Kuwait never revalued their currency. Kuwait redenominated their currency. What is an RV? It is a policy decision from the central bank to change the value of its currency. It can only happen to pegged currencies. This is because the market determines the value for all those currencies that float. This is the standard definition of an RV.

The Kuwaiti Central Bank NEVER adjusted the rate of the dinar. The rate plummeted when Saddam invaded the country and took over the central bank. Everyone was instructed to trade the Kuwait dinar for Iraqi dinar in October of that same year. Speculation drove the price down. Once Iraq was kicked out of Kuwait it took 7 months to get the country up and running again. They had to put out fires because the oil wells were set ablaze. The value of the Kuwaiti dinar was reestablished after Iraq left. The Kuwaiti central bank redenominated the currency because Saddam left with a lot of Kuwaiti dinar. But in the exchange there was no change in value.!

Even Wikipedia acknowledges that this was a redenomination and not a revalue. This scenario is a lot different then what gurus say is going to happen to the dinar. The claim is the dinar will revalue which is due to a policy decision. That is not what happened in Kuwait. The Kuwaiti dinars change in value was due to speculation in the currency itself. It is nothing the central bank controlled. When the country was invaded the value fell because no one new Kuwait’s future. When Kuwait recovered the value came back. The central bank had nothing to do with the change in value! It was perception of a fiat currency and the fact that people lost faith in the Kuwaiti dinar that changed its value.

So there was never a Kuwaiti revalue! And given the very definition of revalue it has never happened before on the scale of what people expect from the dinar. There has never been a revalue over 50 percent.

We need to also consider that Iraq has over 34 trillion dinar in circulation. The dinar is backed by U.S. dollars. They don’t have enough dollars in their reserves to back any kind of significant revalue. Given the fact that there is only around 12 trillion U.S. dollars in America’s M2 money supply it is highly unlikely that Iraq will ever get enough reserves to revalue to any significant level

At least 28 trillion of the Iraqi dinar in circulation today is outside of Iraq’s border. When dinar is exported it is exchanged for US dollars. That money goes straight into their reserves. I agree that Iraq will take the path of Kuwait. They will redenominate their currency. When they do this they will not honor the currency outside of their border and they will cite their currency laws as the reason. Then they get to keep all of that reserve that was collected over the years due to the export of their currency.

Now this comment is gone. For some reason It vanished. So allow me to elaborate a little more. I bought Iraqi dinar based on a lot of lies that I believed. I fell for it hook line and sinker and at the time I knew nothing about how currencies actually worked. I spent 4 years researching economics after I purchased dinar.

Two years after my purchase I am researching economics and I discovered that there was never a Kuwaiti Revalue. In fact I began to research the other lies I was told only to find out that nothing that I was told was even true! That is when I decided to sell my dinar and I started posting the truth about this fraudulent so-called investment on my blog. I spent about two years posting the facts instead of make believe wishful thinking. So now let’s go a little deeper.

The paragraph in question is this one

All other old dinars can be exchanged for new ones on a one-to-one rate until May 7, when the old dinars become invalid. The new official exchange rate is 3.47 American dollars for one new Kuwaiti dinar.

Notice that they are changing out an old currency for a new currency. This is a redenomination it is not a revalue. Revalues are slight adjustments in the value of currency and they only happen to pegged currencies to combat inflation. Now notice these two paragraphs from the New York Times article.

The Central Bank is canceling the value of Kuwaiti dinars that were seized from the Central Bank and put into circulation by the Iraqis. The invalid serial numbers were posted today in front of all banks in the city.

All other old dinars can be exchanged for new ones on a one-to-one rate until May 7, when the old dinars become invalid. The new official exchange rate is 3.47 American dollars for one new Kuwaiti dinar.

So all the dinar was exchanged with no change in value! One old Kuwaiti dinar was equal to one new Kuwaiti dinar! Wikipedia says,

The third series was issued on 20 February 1980, after the accession to the throne of Emir Jaber al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah, at that time in denominations of 1⁄4, 1⁄2, 1, 5 and 10 dinar. A 20 dinar banknote was introduced on 9 February 1986. As a result of the state of emergency after Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait, this series was ruled invalid with effect from 30 September 1991. Significant quantities of these notes were stolen by Iraqi forces and some have appeared on the international numismatic market.

So the fourth series was introduced with no change in value! The same denominations were issued in a new series. This is because Saddam had stolen a lot of Kuwaiti dinar. That was the reason for the redenomination. So let’s recap the actual events

  • 1. Saddam’s forces invade Kuwait and they over run the country.
  • 2. While some people were captured a lot of people flee taking with them as much money as possible (Kuwaiti dinar)
  • 3. Because Saddam’s forces occupy Kuwait the value of their currency begins to fall. Those outside Kuwait exchange dinar for a lower rate.
  • 4, In October of that same year Saddam makes the Kuwaiti dinar illegal and he orders that all Kuwaiti dinar must be exchanged for Iraqi dinar. He pegs the Kuwaiti dinar to the Iraqi dinar. As a result the Kuwaiti dinar which is still in circulation falls to its lowest level.
  • 5. American forces liberate Kuwait. When Saddam’s forces leave they take a lot of Kuwaiti dinar with them. This dinar was stolen from the Kuwaiti Central bank.
  • 6. The Kuwaiti government is put back in power and the Kuwaiti dinar is restored to its original price before the central bank was shut down because of Iraqi troops.
  • 7. There was a redenomination for the sole purpose of invalidating the entire dinar supply that was stolen from Kuwait. The important point is when the redenomination occurred there was no change in value. The old dinar was worth just as much as the new dinar. Here are two more articles to go with the New York Times Article.

This is a lot different then what people are claiming the Iraqi dinar is going to do! Gurus claim that a policy decision made by the central bank will raise the value of the over 70 trillion dinar anywhere from 100,000 to 400,000 percent. And this has never happened before! This is not what happened in Kuwait! It will not happen for obvious reasons. First the amount of hyperinflation that will come from a move like this will destroy the currency. Second nations want to have the lowest currency because it helps them with exports which strengthens their economy and provides jobs.

So if this post came up during a Google search and you friends are trying to tell you to buy dinar or you are new to the dinar world, I am providing this warning for your benefit. Run away from this so-called investment! There is nothing but hype and rumor that is repeated over and over again just to sell this worthless paper.

If you still believe the dinar will revalue after reading the articles I posted or watching events like ISIS unfold in Iraq then for one last time I appeal to your common sense. It is time to set aside all the lies and seek out the truth. Wishful thinking is not going to make you rich. Denying facts won’t help you get the things in life you want. Pipe dreams filled with hype have no chance of coming true. It is high time to face reality and set aside the foolish notion that over 70 trillion dinar is magically going to be worth anywhere from 70 trillion to 280 trillion U.S. dollars. I know what I am saying is not popular and it is not what dinar investors want to hear. But God as my witness, I am speaking the truth! ultimately it is the truth that will set you free!

Dinar Recap

I know it has been a while since I wrote an article for this site. I have been busy going through my other site on global economics. The site I am referring to is BVAWE. I have been fixing links that no longer work. I have been replacing pictures that had an expired URL and in its place was a void blank empty box. I have been fixing videos that no longer play and adding new videos that are very good and add to the collection I have up there already. Given the size of the site it has been a tremendous undertaking.

Some of those articles use to be on Iraq Currency Watch. (IRC) When I closed down ICR I moved them over there. When I opened up Iraq Currency Watch once again I left them alone. I did not move them back. BVAWE was in need of major maintenance and now that work is completed. I did not change the content of the articles. I just updated everything.

Now I want to recap and review some of the things I wrote about in this last quarter concerning the dinar. I just want to talk briefly about some points and maybe make a few new ones. I just want to briefly share some observations.

In the last two articles I took on the global currency reset theory. We exposed some of the problems with this theory. It has some of it’s origins in NESARA. The reset ideas are identical to NESARA. In addition this GCR theory seems to take advantage of global ideas and changes that are being considered and it is blending these ideas with the reset propaganda. This seems to give this theory some legitimacy on the surface. In the end it won’t increase the value of the dinar. People who know little about economics seem to fall for the GCR when they see articles about SDR’s and articles about replacing the dollar. So I want to briefly cover what happened globally and how we got to this point.

For a few decades the United States went into a banking deregulation phase. It all started in the 80’s with the savings and loans institutions. Some of these regulations were put in place after the Great Depression. These regulations were meant as a safe guard to protect us from another Great Depression. The last bit of regulation vanished with The Commodity Futures Modernization Act. This was signed into law by bill Clinton. It was one of the things that paved the way for the housing crisis and the 2008 melt down.

In 2008 everything came to a head. By the time the dust cleared 50 million people fell below the poverty line and 30 million people were unemployed. Millions of dollars in wealth just vanished in thin air partly because in our monetary system debt is monetized. This had a global impact. This means that when this crash hit in it’s full force the amount of currency that was in circulation fell because debt was being removed from the books due to bankruptcies and debt cancellations.

Some wealth was also lost due to perceived values in the housing market. This also had major global impact. To make matters worse the United States now had a struggling economy and some sort of recovery was now needed. So over time the interest rates were lowered and we went into something called Quantitative Easing. (Q.E.)

The Federal Reserve started buying $600 billion in mortgage-backed securities, but by March 2009 it held $1.75 trillion of bank debt and mortgage-backed securities. It acquired this debt by printing more money and purchasing the securities. The Federal Reserve started to print money and this began to make up for the amount that was lost due to debt monetization. This also had the added impact at the start of Q.E. of lowering the dollar’s value. So the amount of currency lost due to a contraction in Fractional Reserve Banking was being made up by expanding the base money supply.

This in turn made nations like China, Russia, India, and Brazil mad at the U.S. because as our dollar decreases in value it levels the playing field and lowers the price for the U.S. to exports goods. At the same time it raises the export costs for nations like China. America’s imports cost more because of this. The cost to export goods was beginning to rise in other countries and as a result the currency wars began. These nations would lose some of their export advantage. This was the strength of their economy. Their economies already took a beating in 2008 due to the global impact of the melt down and now the U.S. was increasing their currency supply.

So as a result China begins to call for a new reserve currency to replace the dollar. The only problem with this plan seems to be at this point there was nothing out there that could replace the dollar. As the New York Times points out,

“The world is trapped into buying dollars because the United States market is big, liquid and reliable as a safe haven. And America is trapped in an addiction to cheap credit, with foreign demand for the dollar allowing the nation to spend well beyond its means.”

This article also points out

“Moreover, the U.S. racked up a lot of government debt and the Fed began flooding the global financial system with dollars. The more dollars there are out there, the less value they should have. But the exact opposite happened. The dollar, if anything, gained slightly in value.

Contrary to all expectations, the U.S. dollar’s position as the world’s dominant reserve currency has been strengthened by the crisis. The world became even more dependent on the dollar than it had been before the crisis.”

This happened during a time when the euro had it’s own problems. The truth is there are no good alternatives to the dollar! China still insists that the worlds reserve still needs to change and that it should no longer be the dollar.

Now a call has emerged to use the International monetary fund’s Special drawing rights or SDR’s as the new international currency. You can think of SDRs as an artificial currency used by the IMF and defined as a “basket of national currencies”. SDRs are allocated by the IMF to its member countries and are backed by the full faith and credit of the member countries’ governments. The IMF uses SDRs for internal accounting purposes.

An SDR is an international type of monetary reserve currency that was created by the International Monetary Fund in 1969. It’s purpose is to operate as a supplement to the existing reserves of member countries. It was created in response to concerns about the limitations of gold and dollars as the sole means of settling international accounts under Bretton Woods. SDRs are designed to augment international liquidity by supplementing the standard reserve currencies. Now there is debate as to whether or not SDR’s should replace the U.S. dollar.

Now all of these events have become mixed with speculation and wild conspiracy theories that say the dollar is going to crash overnight and that the IMF is calling for a NESARA like Global Currency Reset. Lyndsey Williams has claimed that this GCR event would be announced sometime during the first quarter of 2014. Well I am writing this on April 2nd and there has been no announcement of said event. Here is Lyndsey’s prediction

Gold and silver sellers/gurus have jumped on this by hyping a crash in the dollar and they have been urging people to buy Gold and Silver as a hedge of protection. The date for this overnight crash has been moved to the end of June 2014. When that time arrives or gets close the date will move again. Dinar gurus have taken this a step further by saying that the so-called GCR will bring a revalue of currencies like the dinar and dong when the dollar finally crashes overnight.

So can you see why it is hard to separate fact from fiction? After all China is really calling for a replacement to the U.S. dollar. I hope you can see why people get confused about what parts of this whole conspiracy are real. So let’s cover some things. I know I said some of this in the past but it bares repeating.

The first observation people make is that the U.S. got in this mess by over printing their currency. If that is indeed the case then another over printed currency is not going to replace the dollar. Here are the amount of currencies some of these nations have. China – 110 trillion Yuan, Russia – 29 trillion Ruble, India – 20 trillion Rupee, Vietnam – 3,519 trillion Dong, Euro zone – 9.2 trillion Euro. Now compare that with the U.S. dollar which is 11 Trillion. (M2)

Can someone please tell me why these other countries with over inflated currencies will replace the dollar? After all they seem to have the same problem finding the off switch to their printer! The truth is the dollar has gained strength since the 2008 meltdown and everyone has expected the exact opposite! Check the link below.

It won’t be easy replacing the dollar around the world. Right now there are several countries where the U.S. dollar is the official currency of that nation. Some of these countries are The Bahamas, Belize, Bermuda, Cambodia, Cayman Islands, East Timor, (tiny island country between Indonesia and Darwin Australia) Ecuador, Federated States of Micronesia (South Pacific) Marshall Islands, (near Micronesia) Organization of Eastern Caribbean States, Palau (east of the Philippines) Panama, and Zimbabwe. There are other countries that use the dollar along with their currency as well.

So this is not just a matter of the dollar being used as a reserve by central banks. This is also a matter of nations and their citizens using the dollar around the globe for commerce and exchange. Also consider that oil is purchased and sold around the world in most places only using the U.S. dollar. All of these things add up to make the dollar stronger than most people realize. It is not just a reserve currency! It’s a petro-dollar. It’s the official currency for nations around the world.

If America’s economy recovers they will raise interest rates and put an end to Q.E. The dollar would become even stronger as a result. but if they take those actions now it would be at the cost of any economic recovery in America.

There are other portions to this GCR conspiracy theory. Some believe that the GCR is part of bible prophecy so they accept it on that merit alone without researching anything else about the GCR theory. Some believe that an overnight dollar crash and a GCR event will be a prelude to the mark of the beast. Let me just say here and now that this conspiracy theory has absolutely nothing to do with bible prophecy. My personal research into the mark of the beast prophecies seems to indicate something totally different.

Don’t get me wrong. I am not saying that the dollar will never be replaced as a reserve currency. I am not saying that the dollar will not weaken. The dollar has not been the only currency used as a reserve in the past. It could very well be replaced. Right now the dollar is stronger than people think but that does not mean it will remain so.

What I am saying is that there will not be an overnight crash that makes the dollar totally worthless around the world. It won’t be shoved out of central banks overnight and replaced with some new global super currency put together by the IMF. If and when the dollar is replaced it will be a gradual process. It will take time. It could even be years. It will not be an overnight event like GCR promoters claim!

What I am saying is that there will not be an overnight crash of the U.S. dollar that will have an end result of making every dinar holder wealthy beyond their wildest dreams! 11 TRILLION U.S.DOLLARS ARE NOT GOING TO CRASH OVERNIGHT AND MAKE THE 34 TRILLION DINAR OUTSIDE OF THE BANK OF IRAQ WORTH 100,000 TIMES MORE!!!

Can you see the absurd notion in this belief?

By the way think about this. Right now Iraq has 34 trillion dinar outside of the bank in Iraq. The exchange rate in 2009 has been 1170. It moved four pips to 1166. So it has been a pretty steady exchange rate since 2009.

In 2009 Iraq had 21 trillion 776 billion dinar outside of their banks. Today Iraq has over 34 trillion 500 billion outside of the banks. So in 5 years Iraq added about 14 trillion dinar to their circulation outside of the banking structure alone! So the questions are

1. How come hyper-inflation has not consumed the dinar?

2. How has their exchange rate remained so stable? After all it is raised to fight inflation right? How come there has been no movement?

The answer to me is obvious. They have been exporting their currency. I have been able to calculate a very conservative number of slightly over 25 trillion dinar outside of Iraq’s border. I have read in some places and T.D. claims Iraq exported 30 trillion. If that is the case then this means that there is really only about 4 to 5 trillion in circulation within Iraq’s borders. Not bad for a currency that is only supposed to be used in Iraq! This is why hyper-inflation has not collapsed the currency. This is why the exchange rate has been so stable. This is why their reserves have been growing at a faster pace than normal. They have been exporting their currency!

This dinar investment/scam is bigger than most people realize. When I look at my analytics of people who view just my little dinar site I get hits from all over the world. Judging by the amount of people who visit this site the dinar investment is really big in Canada, Malaysia, United Kingdom, Australia, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Germany, India, Pakistan, Philippines, France, Indonesia, Croatia, Sweden, and Mexico.

These countries visit this site on a regular basis. These are not governments. These hits are from private citizens! I suspect that 25 to 30 trillion dinar are spread out over America and these groups of people too. This is massive and it is global! They all gave their dollars to Iraq in order to get dinar! In countries where the wages are lower and the cost of living is lower the investment in the dinar is probably smaller too. I suspect that millions of people have this currency. If and when Iraq does finally redenominate it will become really big news. It will impact millions.

Predictions from Zahlid

About three months ago a man appeared in the dinar community by the name of Zahlid. He claimed to work for the central Bank of Iraq. He claimed that Iraq was going to redenominate by March 15th 2014. He then said it would be by the end of March. Now it is April and there has been no redenomination. There has been no announcement of a soon to be redenomination. I have had my suspicions about him. He had an I.P. address located in Ireland.

Typically people who live in Ireland don’t work for the Central Bank of Iraq. In addition he made some jokes about camels and Iraqi people. Someone from Iraq is not going to do that.

I used the same test I give gurus. I wait until the prediction expires. If the event does not happen as promised then I consider the guru false. His prediction did not come to pass. I believe he does not work for the CBI as an employee or consultant.

I did say that I think he was legit. I did not say this because I believed it with a certainty. I said it because I wanted to see if that statement would anger some of the hardcore dinar community. The hate mail I got was unbelievable. For me this was a simple experiment. It amazes me that people don’t hold dinar gurus to the same standard that they held Zahlid too. While I had a nagging suspicion that this guy was a nut. It seems that no one that is invested in the dinar gets as angry about the constant guru lies. They just wait for the next prediction and start a cycle of hope all over again. I am not talking about the TNT tony’s that are out there. But the other less known predictions

Anyway to me it is now official. Zahlid is a made up name and this person lives in Ireland.

True Freedom

One of the amazing things that I noticed about selling my dinar was how liberating it was. I did not even realize the bondage I was in while I held dinar. It was only after I sold it that this became apparent to me. This is because I use to believe in the any minute revalue theory. I thought I would be wealthy soon. As a result I passed up contract work in my field. I passed up overtime. I did not go on vacations and trips with my family. My life became a constant consuming watchful eye on what this currency was going to do. It became my only concern. I could have made other investments that would have prospered. I could have accepted jobs and contract music work. I could have got overtime.

I passed all that up because I thought I was going to be rich and I did not need those things. I started this blog and devoted several hours to it. I did not place ads on it. I did not make money from it because I thought that I was going to have more money than I could spend and everything was going to be ok. In my mind I would start living my life again once this thing revalues.

You see in the end this so-called investment costs you more than the money you spend on it. It costs you your time. It costs you other opportunities that may come your way to make more money. For some people it cost them their family. For some it cost them their marriage. This whole thing is a bad deal all around. It places you in bondage and it steals everything from you! My true freedom came when I sold this crap and got on with my life.

I began to pursue other things. One of the things I have learned is true wealth is not measured in money. Wealth can also be measured in blessings. There are other things in life that make you wealthier then you realize!


This will be my last post for a while. I have other things that I am going to focus on for a while. If something major happens in the dinar community then I will come back and write about it. If Iraq begins a redenomination process I will come back and write about it. For now it is on to other things.

If you want to know more about my analysis of the Global Currency Reset or the 2008 meltdown then I would suggest you check out my other site. The Rabbit Hole series covers this in greater detail. There are third-party videos and links that are very good. This will allow you to do your own research

The Rabbit Hole part 1 Talks about the events as they unfolded in 2008. It also introduces CMKX and talks about it’s role with the Iraqi Dinar.

The Rabbit Hole Part 2 Covers the deregulation that happened and all the things that aligned to create the melt down. It also covers Basel I, Basel II, and Basel III. It goes into the reasons for these international accords

The Rabbit Hole part 3 gives a background on the Federal Reserve and the Exchange Stabilization Fund and the role it plays with the United States Treasury. It also covers information about oil and more information about CMKX.

The Rabbit Hole part 4 explains CMKX and NESARA. It covers the people behind the scenes of the government and reveals movers and shakers. It also talks about how NESARA, CMKX and the Iraqi Dinar are linked. It goes into why I consider them conspiracy theories.

The Rabbit Hole part 5 is the conclusion of this series. It ties everything together and talks about the global economic community. By the end of the series you get a crash course in economics and international trade. You learn about the petro-dollar and other events that shaped the global community.

This Rabbit Hole series contains dinar information. These articles use to be over here on Iraq Currency Watch. I wrote them when I still believed in the revalue of the dinar. Unless something bizarre happens. It should be a very long time before I write for this site again.
