Crockaganda!

Sometimes it seems as though everyone lies. I would like to write about this with a wider topic margin but for now I want to focus on currencies, gold, and silver. There is something called a half lie. A half lie is a distortion of truth. Sometimes it is a part of the truth left untold. This causes you to draw certain conclusions. Mixing truth with a lie makes the lie seem more plausible and believable.

Some people are not lying, yet they continue to give out wrong information. The reason for this is because they actually believe what they are saying. They based their viewpoint on wrong information. When someone believes what they are saying and that information is wrong they are not lying, they are just misinformed. I have been guilty of this myself on occasion. In fact, everyone has! It does not matter if someone has wrong information and it does not matter if they are flat-out lying to you. In either case it all adds up to crockaganda!

Gold and Silver

With that in mind I would like to take some time and talk about gold and silver and how this relates to the dinar. Dinar gurus seem to be taking a page from certain gold and silver bugs in an effort to prove that the currency is going to revalue soon. The video below is made by people I respect. Mike Maloney did a great job explaining how the system works. I think everyone should see his work. I start with Video 4 because it explains how the system works. Everything he says is accurate.

Even though Mr. Maloney revealed the system there are some things he left out. This is a complicated system to understand and people go to Universities for years just to get a basic understanding. Some of this stuff may be addressed in some of his other videos but I will still share a few things in an attempt to provide deeper meaning. You would reach certain conclusions unless you knew the truth. Now I will take some time and explain some of the things left unsaid.

1. We are left with the impression that the dollar is basically nothing more than a bunch of numbers. We are told by some gold and silver merchants that the dollar is not backed by anything at all. That is not the case. In fact, about 71.6 percent of the dollar is backed by gold that belongs to the United States. The dollar is no longer redeemable in gold, but that does not mean that there is no gold that backs the dollar.

The Federal Reserve Bank of New York holds 540,000 Gold bars alone. This is not counting the other locations. In fact, the United States has 8,133.5 tons of gold to back their currency. That means that 70.6 percent of U.S, currency is backed by gold alone. bonds make up the rest. The U.S. has the most gold to back their currency. It does not belong to the Federal Reserve, it belongs to the U.S!

 2. We are told that the definition of inflation is an increase in the money supply. This is not true. Increasing the money supply is one of the causes inflation but it is not the textbook definition of inflation. The textbook definition of inflation means an ongoing fall in the overall purchasing power of the monetary unit. Inflation means a sustained increase in the aggregate or general price level in an economy. Inflation means there is an increase in the cost of living.

Increasing the money supply is not the only cause of inflation! There are other causes of inflation. If it cost more to produce goods or services then the price of those goods and services are passed on to consumers. An example of this can be found in the cost of fuel. When oil prices went up in 2008 to about 149.00 a barrel the result was higher gas prices. That in turn resulted in higher food prices because it cost more to bring those goods to market. The cost was passed on to consumers and we had a decrease in the purchasing power of the dollar which was sustained for quite a while. This is in spite of the fact that huge amounts of debt was erased from the books thus causing a decrease in the global dollar supply.

Another cause of inflation is supply and demand. When demand for goods rise and supply cannot keep up, that causes inflation. An example of this can be found in 2003 through 2007. The cost of housing skyrocketed due to increased demand. Laws were passed to allow anyone the ability to buy a house. Mix that with predatory lending and the end result was a big increase in the demand for housing. The market expanded greatly during this time. After the 2008 meltdown, demand for housing dropped and so did the price of housing.

It is true that there was a housing bubble and that was attributed to the problems in the industry. Never the less, that bubble caused an increased demand for housing which forced the prices up and builders could not build them fast enough. The materials used to build those houses also went up in cost and that was passed on to the consumer.

My only real point here is that the money supply is not the only cause of inflation and inflation does not always translate to an increase in the money supply!

3. It was said in this video that the founding fathers made sure that gold and silver was the only thing that could be used for money. They put it in the constitution because they knew the dangers that are involved with a central bank.

First and foremost the founding fathers actually did write that in the constitution, but it was not because they knew of the dangers that are involved when a central bank is thrown into the mix. America has had 2 central banks before the Federal Reserve. Our first bank was actually signed into law by George Washington himself! It had a 20 year charter. After it expired the charter was not renewed. After the war of 1812 America started another central bank to help finance and pay for the war. The same politicians that would not renew the charter of the first central bank started this one because of the debt America accumulated as a result of the war.

The picture on the left is a picture of America’s first central bank

America.s Second Central Bank

So how does all this relate to the dinar?

This relates to the dinar because gurus are copying the points that gold and silver salesmen make and they are using those points as the reason why the currency must revalue. It is Amazing how close some of their arguments are! This is why I wrote the book called The Truth About The Coming Global Currency Reset. The purpose of this book is to expose all the hype and to tell you what is really happening with the GCR. All of the above information including the information found in mikes video can be found in that book.

In the end Mike Maloney is right about a lot of things. I may not agree with absolutely everything in his presentation, but he has a great way of showing you how the current system really works. He exposes it for what it truly is! I respect his work and I like his videos. I am not a big fan of the Federal Reserve and some fundamental changes are desperately needed.

Hand Writing On The Wall

While there are still some who speculate on the dinar, its fate could not be more certain. I came to my conclusion a few years back. I stopped following the dinar because of other things going on in my life. I devoted a lot of time to my music. I developed a brand new website and I am getting ready to release an album. I wrote all the music for this album and all the guitar parts are done only using nylon string guitars. I also wrote a book about music that will be available soon. So as you can see I have been busy.

It has been a while since I looked at the dinar. I have been out of touch for a while, but yesterday I had a little time on my hands. I began to poke around to see if there was anything new going on. I went to the CBI website and pulled the numbers. I looked at a few other things. I was not aware of everything that is going on with this currency, but the few hours I spent looking into it yesterday was enlightening to say the least.

For starters the central bank is pulling all 50 dinar notes out of circulation and declaring them invalid. Everyone has 2 months to exchange their notes. The trade in period starts on March 1st 2015 and goes until into April 30th 2015. After that time period expires the notes are invalid. These notes are only worth about 4 cents each. There are many people who got lower denominations here in the United States because they were told by the gurus that they would be more secure and more valuable than the larger notes after the RV.

Is this a prelude for what is to come? Even if all dinar dealers were to offer a way to trade in the notes that are higher in value, (which I highly doubt) what guarantees are there that they could provide this service during the allotted trade in period?  If you want to trade in all your 50 dinar notes then gather them together and head over to Iraq. You now got less than 2 months to get this done. After you accomplish this I hope you enjoy your new-found ummm……wealth?……

I hope that people now begin to see the absurdity of the revalue. I hope that through the removal of the 50 dinar notes they begin to see how hard it would be to exchange these notes. I have said this all along. Check the link for more info.

In other Dinar related news Sam I am is closing up shop. He is moving on to bigger and better things. Dinar Douchebags is closing down. Sam was always a straight shooter and I am sad to see what has become probably the best dinar site on the internet close down. I understand the need to move on with life. So I wish Sam the very best in his new adventures and I want to thank him for his relentless pursuit of truth.

One of the great things about Sam’s site was not only the articles that he posted but also the people who commented on his site. There were many educated readers that also backed Sam and provided even more proof for the things he uncovered. People like Brian and JRG always had a way to cut through the bull and present a logical case. I have always had the greatest respect for the people over there.

So hats off to Dinar Douchebags and their readers and a toast to all of you for your relentless pursuit of truth!

What’s Going On?

Well with all this new found information I decided to do a little digging. The first thing I did was to get the latest numbers from the CBI. I downloaded the statistics document and gave it a quick look. It was very revealing. I am about to show you something using the CBI’s own numbers. This is what I found,

According to line 79 (the money outside of banks in circulation) there has been some drastic changes! take a look,

Oct 35,381           Nov 34,682           Dec 35,378          Jan 35,623

The numbers above are in trillions. So for October the CBI had 35 trillion 381 billion outside of the bank in circulation. This is a time period from October of 2014 to Jan of 2015. Now look at November. That is roughly a 700 billion dinar reduction. I have been following the dinar since 2010 and there is only one other time when I have seen a drastic reduction like this. And that is when Maliki tried to take over the CBI and the whole thing resulted in Shabibi leaving the CBI. That was back in 2012. What is going on over there? It gets better,

Look at these numbers from 2014. All numbers are in trillions.

Line 86 M1 money supply  Oct 71,179       Nov 70,182          Dec 72,651

Line 87 M2 money supply  Oct 88,964       Nov 88,007          Dec 91,704

It seems that there was a drastic and sudden reduction in the dinar in November of 2014. Their M1 was reduced by almost 1 trillion dinar! What would cause such an event?

Here is another piece to the puzzle. The CBI’s reserves are shrinking! Check out this IMF document for proof.

http://www.imf.org/external/np/vc/2015/011115.htm

I am going to quote from this document

“The recent collapse in world oil prices has added to the tensions caused by the ISIS insurgency and is complicating efforts to deal with it. With oil export revenues accounting for more than 90 percent of total government revenues, Iraq has always been highly vulnerable to oil price volatility. Falling oil prices are already reducing government revenues”

Here is another quote

“international reserves have fallen from over $77 billion at end-2013 to about $67 billion at end-November due to the combination of lower oil revenues and relatively high imports, particularly by the government. These figures exclude the Development Fund for Iraq (DFI) which was created in 2003 mainly to funnel Iraq’s oil revenues and serve the function of a fiscal buffer. The DFI was already down to $6.5 billion at end-2013, and declined further to about $4 billion in November.”

Analysis

The combination of falling oil prices and ISIS has hit Iraq hard. So much so that Iraq is now tapping into their currency reserves. The impact of falling oil prices and ISIS has forced Iraq’s hand. They are now spending some of the reserve money used to back their currency! Their reserves have about a 10 billion dollar reduction!

I knew that falling oil prices were having a global impact. Russia, Iran, ISIS, and Iraq were all affected. Now I am looking at the evidence. Iraq is having money problems. Their revenues have decreased due to falling oil prices. They had to cut their budget and rethink some things. I suspect that things came to head in November of 2014 and some adjustments were made.

Moving on

As I continued digging around I found that there are several rumors that Iraq is still going to go ahead with the 50,000 dinar note. I could not find any proof to verify this. This was mainly rumors that circulated in forums. We all know how reliable those are!

I also found a lot of people saying that there is a dinar shortage of sorts. It is hard to get dinar from the dealers and there is a waiting period. Once again, we all know how reliable rumors are!

So I did a quick search on eBay and I found over 9,000 auctions all from individuals selling dinar. I remember the days when there were a few hundred auctions selling dinar. Now people are trying to unload the stuff. I found one auction that was even trying to sell the 50 dinar notes. The guy wanted 69 cents for each note. This guy was going to get his RV one way or another!

Final Conclusion

If the dinar is truly hard to get from the dealers then that means that the dealers are not buying back large quantities and they don’t want to hold a large supply of dinar. They only want enough to meet current sale demands. If this is even true you got to ask yourself what do the dealers know that we don’t know? Once again this could all be just rumors

This part is fact. Right now money is tight in Iraq. They are suffering from a shortage of US dollars due to the falling oil prices. Now they are tapping into their reserves. (check the IMF link) They have a policy of covering the dinar 100 percent with U.S. reserves, but now according to some sources there seems to be a shortage of reserves by about as much as 10 billion! I am not so sure the number is that high but there is a significant reduction.

This means one of two things. First they are going to change their policy and not cover the dinar with reserves 100 percent, or second they are going to go ahead with a redenomination sometime this year. My guess would be in the middle of summer or by the end of September.

If Iraq does release a 50,000 dinar note like some of the rumors say then there won’t be a redenomination and they are going to change their policy to reflect the reduction of reserves. If I were to place a bet then my money would be on the redenomination. This course of action would help Iraq strengthen their currency which is something they desperately need at the moment. The truth is no one knows for sure what Iraq is going to do.

If Iraq does redenominate then expect a short trade in period. There may be a few dealers that will try to cash in on this, but in the end there are no guarantees! Could this be the reason dealers are not buying as much dinar back as they use to? Could this be the reason there are over 9,000 dinar auctions on eBay? No one knows

This whole dinar ride may be over soon. It may all end by the end of the year! Yes my conclusions does have a lot of speculation based on some of the rumors. Only one thing is for certain. This dinar ride has made me sick! It is time for me to go throw up now. If you have a sick feeling in the pit of your stomach don’t ignore it! There still may be time to get out.

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 Coming 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.

https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/508759

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

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00RYIY21Y

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, securities.ok.gov, to check out the registration of a broker-dealer, investment adviser or investment products.”

http://www.securities.ok.gov/Press_Releases/PRDetail.asp?ID=74

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.”

http://www.dfi.wa.gov/consumers/alerts/iraqi-dinar-scams.htm

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

http://www.forbes.com/sites/jayadkisson/2012/07/30/you-cant-fix-stupid-the-iraqi-dinar-scam-lives/

http://www.forbes.com/sites/johnwasik/2012/01/19/the-curse-of-saddam-iraqi-dinar-deals/

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

http://www.forbes.com/sites/johnwasik/2012/06/19/iraqi-dinar-soars-again/

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.

http://www.iraqidinarscam.info/iraqi-dinar-lawsuit/

For more information about this visit this link

http://www.iraqidinarscam.info/

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.

https://tts.sec.gov/oiea/Complaint.html

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.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_Hamilton

https://docs.google.com/file/d/13QFCM4HA_gFGe_F9lzfMTzpGuikBZ4Zg70ahJDp6YMFzjTDuSajXOHgUrpt_/edit?pli=1

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

http://www.forbes.com/sites/johnwasik/2014/07/28/the-dinars-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.”

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-24179084

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.

http://mriqd.com/2014/06/30/eureka-ny-times-article-confirms-kuwaits-1991-iqd-rv/

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?

MR IQD “YOUR STATEMENT THAT YOUR POST SUDDENLY ‘VANISHED’ AFTER YOU WROTE THEM IS INCORRECT AND A FLAT-OUT LIE!!!

All comments on MrIQD.com 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!
