Hi Everyone,

I bring you much news today.

I want everyone to hear this from me one more time – this corona virus is NOT a cover screen for the RV. How stupid to even think it is. I am also hearing that the virus once realized how bad it is, may be used as a cover for rounding up the “deep state” and dislodging them from any positions of power and influence. I can not verify this rumor either so let’s just sit tight and ride out this storm.

However, if these rumors are true then when we get the green light that the pandemic is over, we should be getting a full report from the judiciary on what happened, if in fact this is the case.

Remember John Durham and William Barr are surfacing horrific crimes including deep seated Obama administration crimes such as the use of the presidential office and powers to enrich himself and his friends.

There is also the misuse of military weapons upon civilians as in the California fires an contrived school shootings. Also let us not forget about the chemtrail spraying and refusal of the government of disclose to us exactly what is going on. So, these events and more are being covered up from the American people.

Oh – don’t we live in a democracy? The people should run the government (by the people for the people?) not some small elite group of individuals who think they can control us with propaganda, lies and deception. Then the use of technology to enforce and control us even more. This and more must come out in the open for those “deep state” responsible must pay the price no matter how high up in the government.

THE SADRIST MOVEMENT: THE PASSAGE OF AL-ZARFI GOVERNMENT IN PARLIAMENT, WOULD NOT BE EASY BUT EASIER THAN ALLAWI GOVERNMENT

Baghdad today – private
The Sadrist movement, led by Muqtada al-Sadr, on Friday (20 March 2020), favored the passage of the Adnan al-Zarfi government in the Iraqi parliament, while noting that passing it would not be easy.

The leader of the current, Governor of Zamili, told (Baghdad Today), “The situation of Prime Minister-designate Adnan Al-Zrafi is not easy, as there are political differences and differences over this mandate, and some of this rejection comes within the political pressure to obtain some ministries and positions in the new government.”

He added, “We believe that Al-Zorfi’s mission will be easier than the mission of Muhammad Tawfiq Allawi, because of his support from the demonstration arenas, and external support.”

Al-Zamili stressed that “some Shiite, Sunni and Kurdish blocs support him, and for this he needs some consensus from the opposing blocs, and for this he can pass his government in Parliament.”

(Mnt Goat – we have heard this all before with Allawi and then nothing happens. Shiite resistance is still there and the Iranians need to be kicked out of the government. )

THE US STATE DEPARTMENT REFUSES TO CONSIDER AL-ZARFI AS "SUPPORTED" BY WASHINGTON ONLY BUT RATHER SUPPORTED BASED ON PRINCIPLES FOR IRAQ

US Assistant Secretary of State for Near East Affairs, David Schenker, refused on Saturday to consider the Prime Minister-designate Adnan Al-Zarfi as an American-backed.

"The United States did not focus on individuals, but rather on principles related to the appointed Iraqi Prime Minister, Adnan Al-Zarfi," Al-Monitor newspaper quoted in his report, translated into Arabic, "Al-Maalouma".
He added, "We are looking for an Iraqi government that will take care of the situation in Iraq first, in proving that they are Iraqi patriots, and they want Iraq to be a sovereign state."

Schenker rejected a characterization that considers the new Iraqi prime minister to be backed by Washington, as Zorfi was first appointed to be the governor of Najaf in 2005 by the US-led Coalition Provisional Authority.

(Mnt Goat – please don’t go off half-cocked thinking this article means that the US does not support the new PM candidate al-Zarfi. This is NOT what it is saying. Instead Mr. Schenker is just down playing the inference that the US is controlling Iraq by supporting the new candidate and a puppet to the US. Instead he wanted to tell everyone the US supports the principles behind the man not just supporting a puppet prime minister. So please do not get all anxious and READ the article correctly. Actually this is really good news!)

THE IRAQI PRESIDENT TRANSMITS THREE AMERICAN DEMANDS TO ADNAN AL-ZARFI

Iraqi President Barham Salih refused to replace Adnan Al-Zarfi with another candidate to head the next government.

A source close to Saleh told «Gulf News» that the pressure of the Shiite forces on Saleh will not change his position by maintaining the candidacy of Adnan Al-Zorfi, especially since the Federal Court supported the constitutionality of the nomination.

In its legal opinion, the Federal Court said that the President of the Republic has the right to nominate the person he deems appropriate to head the government if the largest bloc fails to find a candidate to represent it.
For his part, a deputy close to the former Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi revealed pressure exerted by an external party to impede the passage of the Al-Zarfi government.

According to sources in the Presidency of the Republic, the Iraqi president transferred to Al-Zarfi during his candidacy American demands, if Zarfi succeeds in achieving them, then he will have great American support, noting that the American demands are summarized in three axes:

First: Reducing the role of the popular crowd (Iranian backed) and keeping it away from influencing the Iraqi political decision.

Second: to keep the Iranian influence from penetrating into the political and economic life of Iraq through frank and direct negotiations with Iran about that.

Third: Opening up to the Arab and regional ocean countries away from Iranian dictates.

(Mnt Goat – So we are seeing the effort on the part of the US to get Iran out of Iraq and out of Iraqi politics. We all should know by now this is the impeding element in any progress towards currency reform. If you didn’t know it you know it now…lol..lol..lol..)

A MEMBER OF PARLIAMENTARY FINANCE TALKS ABOUT A FINANCIAL SURPLUS THAT HE DISCLOSES FOR THE FIRST TIME, WHICH WOULD SECURE THE EMPLOYEES ’SALARIES

23 March 2020

Member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, Ahmed Al-Saffar, said on Monday that the GLOBAL CRISIS REPRESENTED BY LOW OIL PRICES IS TEMPORARY, stressing that the salaries of employees are insured for a full year because THERE IS A FINANCIAL SURPLUS capable of securing it.

Al-Saffar said in a statement I followed (Baghdad today), that "the global crisis represented by low oil prices is temporary and may not last more than a month or two at most," noting that "its causes are known and they are a (Corona) virus outbreak in the world and its impact on production plants."

In Japan, China and Europe, which led to lower oil demand, producers entered a price war and flooded the market with crude oil, which led to lower prices.

He indicated that "the oil exporting countries do not bear more losses and could end the crisis during the next month or the next. He continued, "Keeping oil prices at their current level will not harm Iraq, as it can pay the salaries of its employees for a whole year, from the surpluses of the 2019 budget for investments and many exchange doors in other ministries, in addition to that Iraq is a country that has a cash reserve in the central bank and that the internal reserve can be used, if needed.

(Mnt Goat – funny how one day the world is crashing in on Iraqi’s economy and the next we find out they have a surplus of cash. But of course we knew it all along. It is just a matter of who it telling us the news… lol.. lol..)

THREE LARGE SHIITE PARLIAMENTARY BLOCS, GIVE PRIME MINISTER-DESIGNATE ADNAN AL-ZORFI, THE GREEN LIGHT, TO FORM THE NEW IRAQI GOVERNMENT

An Iraqi political source revealed, today, Friday, a meeting held by three large Shiite parliamentary blocs, which resulted in the appointment of Prime Minister-designate Adnan Al-Zorfi, the green light, to form the new Iraqi government.

The source said to RT that "the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, who did not appear and did not send a representative during the meeting of the Shiite blocs, on Thursday evening, provided that there were no representatives of the State of Law coalition led by Nuri al-Maliki and the Asaib al-Haq movement led by Qais Khazali, in any meetings related to The fate of the next government, so that its representatives can attend. "

He added that after a meeting of the Shiite blocs held a second meeting, late Friday night in the house of al-Hakim, the leader of the opposition coalition, Ammar al-Hakim, and the representative of al-Sadr, a former minister, Nassar al-Rubaie, and the leader of the Al-Fatah coalition, Hadi al-Amiri, gathered.

He pointed out that "the second meeting agreed on general principles on giving the green light to the commissioner, Adnan Al-Zarfi, to start forming his interim government."

(Mnt Goat – I hope Zarfi can quickly form his government and get himself appointed as the permanent prime minister in time for the price of oil to go back up, maybe in a few months. If he can, then we might be in a good place to see the currency reform. I am still hearing that the CBI wants to do this project to delete the zeros and just needs the political obstacle gone and stability to return.)

REPORT: AMERICA CONSIDERS PROACTIVE MEASURES IF IRAQ DOES NOT FULFILL ITS OBLIGATIONS

US President Donald Trump and his Secretary of State, MIKE POMPEO, TOOK GREAT CARE IN HOLDING IRAN RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MISSILE ATTACK ON THE TAJI camp, north of Baghdad, last week, which killed 3 coalition soldiers in Iraq, including two American soldiers. . Trump, during the press conference the day before yesterday, responded to reporters' questions about the American response and Iran's responsibility for the attack, saying: "Maybe we should not say this now." According to a report by Al-Sharq Al-Awsat newspaper.

Pompeo, in turn, said: "Let me come back to you later to answer that," adding: "WE HAVE MADE CLEAR THAT" THE IRANIAN MILITIA ARMED FACTIONS IN IRAQ HAVE RECEIVED FUNDING, TRAINING, AND EQUIPMENT FROM THE IRANIANS, and we urge the Iranians not to do so, and we have informed the Iranians that they will be held accountable for these. Attacks, when it threatens the lives of Americans. "

The American administration had indicated that armed factions had carried out the attack, but it has not yet said whether the Iranian regime was involved in planning, planning or giving orders to carry out this attack. THERE IS A TENSE DEBATE IN THE WHITE HOUSE BETWEEN PRESIDENT TRUMP AND HIS SENIOR ADVISERS ON HOW TO DEAL WITH THE RECENT ATTACK IN IRAQ and the killing of the two American soldiers.

(Mnt Goat -So here is two options of what the Trump advisors wanted him to do. You see some of these advisors are deep state, long standing in the government. Trump can not trust many of them. Which set of advisors do you think are deep state from reading what they advised the president to do?)

1.A team led by Secretary of State and National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien INSISTS ON A STRICT AND DECISIVE RESPONSE TO THESE MISSILE ATTACKS, especially since the time is right to take decisive action, given Iran's leaders are busy fighting the rapidly expanding Corona virus, and the situation can finally lead to an Iranian move in The direction of negotiations.

2.But the other team, led by Defense Secretary Mark Asper, and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Millie, maintains that the "Pentagon" and intelligence agencies have no clear evidence that attacks by Shiite militias carried out the attack on the orders of Iran, and THEY WARNED THAT A WIDESPREAD RESPONSE HAD THE UNITED STATES IS DRAGGING INTO A BROADER WAR WITH IRAN, WHICH COULD TEAR APART ALREADY STRAINED TIES WITH IRAQ.

For its part, THE US STATE DEPARTMENT BLAMED THE CARETAKER GOVERNMENT FOR PROTECTING US AND COALITION FORCES IN IRAQ. Assistant Secretary of State for Near East Affairs David Schenker told reporters, via a conference call yesterday evening, that his country was disappointed with the performance of the caretaker government, warning that "if the Iraqi government does not do a better job to protect the coalition forces, the United States will be forced to Take measures to protect its members. ”

Schenker added: "If the Iraqi government does not take steps to hold those responsible for the attacks on the coalition forces, who are at the request of the Iraqi government, to account, the United States will have to continue to proactively protect our forces." He continued: "IT IS NO SECRET THAT WE ARE VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THE PERFORMANCE OF THE IRAQI GOVERNMENT IN FULFILLING ITS OBLIGATIONS TO PROTECT THE COALITION FORCES, ESPECIALLY THE AMERICAN FORCES PRESENT IN IRAQ, AT THE INVITATION OF THE GOVERNMENT."

SCHENKER REJECTED THE CHARACTERIZATION OF THE NEW IRAQI PRIME MINISTER, AS BACKED BY THE UNITED STATES, just because the US-led coalition authorities appointed him as governor in Najaf in 2005, after the US invasion of Iraq. HE STRESSED THAT THE UNITED STATES FOCUSES ON PRINCIPLES, NOT INDIVIDUALS.

Schenker added that, “BEFORE HIS DEATH, QASIM SOLEIMANI WAS SITTING IN BAGHDAD, AND DETERMINING WHO WILL BE THE NEXT PRIME MINISTER, and we are not Iran, we want the best for Iraq, and WE DO NOT INTERFERE IN IRAQI INTERNAL POLITICS, and I believe that we are dealing with the situation on the basis of principles.”

(Mnt Goat – I really think it is very wrong for Iran to accuse the US of interfering with Iraqi internal affairs when they themselves have been doing it successfully now since 2003 and especially since the 2018 election and now with selecting the next prime minister it is ever more apparent. Oh – did I mention the thousands of Iranian militias still in Iraq that never left after ISIS was defeated? What about this Iranian occupation? Are there double standards here? I wish Pompeo would bring these issues to light too.)

KUWAITI REPORT: IRAN PROPAGANDA -AMERICA IS PLANNING A MILITARY COUP IN IRAQ (of course most of this is pure propaganda put out by Iran)

On Sunday, a Kuwaiti newspaper revealed that American plans to carry out a military coup in Iraq to control power in Baghdad.

A report of the Kuwaiti newspaper, Al-Jarida, quoted a source in the Iranian Quds Force as saying, "The Revolutionary Guards and the factions loyal to him in Iraq, particularly the Popular Mobilization Committee, announced a state of alert with all the forces, in anticipation of a military coup organized by the Americans to control power in Baghdad."

She added that "the Iranian security services obtained intelligence information that the Americans informed their allies in Baghdad that relying on civil society organizations is no longer effective, and will not succeed, without a parallel move by the armed forces loyal to Washington to finish off Tehran and its allies in Iraq."

The newspaper quoted the source as saying that "the political structure in Iraq does not allow the Americans to have a pro-government prime minister come to power, except in the event of a pro-Washington military coup to control power."

The source said that "the Iranians have opened extensive communication channels with Sunni and Kurdish Iraqi parties to form a coalition facing the new" American plans ", especially in light of Washington's attempt to exploit Tehran's concern to confront the spread of the Corona virus, to pass it.
He explained that "the Iranians are trying to convince all Iraqi political parties that everyone's interest requires that a civilian prime minister be able to control power in any way, and that any" military coup ", if it occurs, will mean everyone is losing all their gains, and perhaps Iraq will return to what It was under Saddam Hussein. "

The source pointed out that "Washington's elimination of the commander of the" Quds Force "Qassem Soleimani and Vice President of the" Hashd "Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis represented the beginning of the American move to seize power in Iraq, because the Americans were aware that Soleimani had close contacts with many Iraqi politicians, and he could have turned the table. At them at any moment. "

The source acknowledged that "Tehran has suffered a great blow by losing Soleimani, and has not been able, until now, to fill the void left by a character who possesses the" charisma "necessary to influence all of Iran's allies in the region."

HEZBOLLAH NEWSPAPER: AN IMMINENT CONFRONTATION BETWEEN THE IRANIAN FACTIONS AND WASHINGTON ON IRAQI SOIL!

Iraqi officials have suggested that an ARMED CONFRONTATION BETWEEN THE "FACTIONS" AND AMERICAN FORCES IN IRAQ WILL ERUPT DESPITE THE INTERNATIONAL COALITION'S DECISION TO WITHDRAW FROM SOME BASES that were occupied in the west of the country in a plan that sources said would include a number of other bases in Kirkuk and Nineveh.

According to a report prepared by a newspaper close to the Lebanese Hezbollah, which was followed by "Nass" (March 23, 2020), "the rocket attacks that resulted in deaths and injuries will not pass quietly."
the report:

“A senior Iraqi military source confirmed, in an interview with Al-Akhbar, that the American side intends to evacuate its camps in Kirkuk and Qayyarah, in the north of the country, after evacuating the Al-Qa’im camp, which is located in the border area with Syria, and that was established with the start of operations to restore the Iraqi-Qaim Iraqi-Pagos Late in 2017. The source added that «the second withdrawal will include the camps K1 in Kirkuk Governorate, and Qayyarah in Nineveh Governorate» (there is talk of a withdrawal from 3 other bases in the vicinity of the Iraqi capital Baghdad; see “News” No. 4010), describing this as “the step Positive toward Parliamentary Decision »issued on January 5 , And judge the withdrawal of various foreign military forces from Mesopotamia.

The source quotes that the US-led "International Coalition Against ISIS" informed the Iraqi side of its intention to "withdraw" from the bases and facilities it occupies (along with the Iraqi military forces) in the foreseeable future, without providing any further details. Other security sources, in an interview with Al-Akhbar, confirmed that "the withdrawal, or the current American measure, is repositioning and controlling the deployment of forces in a very limited number of bases," stressing that Washington wants a "smooth withdrawal ... that saves its face." Here, the American-European “argument” stands out (a number of countries operating in the “coalition,” most notably Britain), to justify some of its expected withdrawals, while suspending the training of the Iraqi military forces for fear of an outbreak of the Corona virus.

While the sources affirm that the "Ain al-Assad Air" bases (west of the country) and "Erbil" (Kurdistan Region) will receive the American forces that had already spread along the Iraqi map, they note that the Iranian side is aware of the path of the existing negotiations and is "satisfied with its results" ». The American side (and with the knowledge of Tehran) «does not want a complete withdrawal from Iraq, but rather controlling the spread of its forces, so that they are not easy targets for the armed factions.»
In the face of these developments, and in connection with what was previously published by Al-Akhbar, this year may witness the repositioning of the various American forces deployed in Iraq, with the “argument of the Corona” (in addition to the exorbitant financial costs), which may be a way out that “saves Washington’s face” But it is a reality that it fears, as a matter of fact, the rocket attacks on its interests, which in recent days resulted in a number of deaths and injuries. A scene “will not pass without local confrontations between the American forces and the factions,” in the words of well-informed Iraqi security sources, confirming in an interview to “Al-Akhbar” that “American relocation will definitely not pass quietly, but will be accompanied by mutual strikes, but the fear lies in a slip that does not Anybody wants it, in this circumstance. ”

(Mnt Goat – I have said this many times that it may lead to the only way to rid Iraq of the Iranian militias is to do if by force. I do nto t hink Trump wants a ground war with Iran on Iraqi soil. He will try to avoid it at all cost.

We can see that the US is building up forces now just in case. The day may be coming soon as there may be no other option. When this happens, they are also going to round up all the Iranian backed politicians. The US already put sanctions on most of them. This part is coming I assure you. Just be patient. Maliki and Ameri days are numbered!)

ALI SHAMKHANI, SECRETARY OF IRAN'S SUPREME NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL VISITS IRAQ

Allawi's resignation came as a result of the popular movement that rejects him since his nomination, considering him from the unwanted political class.

Allawi had been appointed to form the government early last February and had prepared a list of candidates for ministerial positions, claiming that they are independent technocrats. But the lack of a quorum made the most divided parliament in Iraq’s history fail to give Allawi confidence to form the government.

In conjunction with efforts to assign a new Iraqi Prime Minister amid sharp divisions between the political parties, Ali Shamkhani, secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council visit Iraq.

Observers linked Shamkhani`s visit with a number of scenarios. The most important of these questions is the permanent endeavor of Iran to control the process of forming the new government to be similar to the previous governments since 2003.

SHAMKHANI CAME TO MAKE UP FOR THE ABSENCE OF QASSIM SOLEIMANI, IRGC COMMANDER WHO WAS KILLED early this year at Baghdad airport by a US drone.

His visit came also coinciding with the countdown to the period set by the Iraqi constitution for Barham Salih to nominate a new prime minister.

An Iraqi official revealed to al-Ain newspaper that Shamkhani had a series of meetings in Baghdad and Najaf with officials and political leaders, including President Salih, the outgoing Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi, Parliament Speaker Muhammad al-Halbousi, head of Iraqi National Intelligence Service Mustafa al-Kazimi,head of Dawa Party Nouri al-Maliki, the head of al-Hikma National movement Ammar al-Hakim, and the leader of Al-Sadri movement Moqtada Al-Sadr, leaders of the IMIS and a number of leaders of other political parties.

The official added that Shamkhani, who is overseeing the formation of the new government, was assigned by the Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to play Qassim Soleimani`s role. For this reason, Shamkhani visited Baghdad to intervene closely on selecting a pro-Iranian figure after Iran failed to pass the government of Muhammad Allawi.

Early this month, Prime Minister-designate Muhammad Allawi resigned as protests continued to demand sweeping political reforms and putting an end to the Iranian influence in Iraq.

The official pointed out that Iran is expected to choose al-Kazimi for the post of a prime minister because of his loyalty to Iran. He is also supported by the Iranian side and is accepted by most Iraqi political blocs.

Iran is intensifying efforts to recover from losses it suffered in Iraq and Syria after the killing of Soleimani, and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, deputy head of the IMIS and the founder of the Iraqi Hezbollah Brigades.

According to political and field estimates, Soleimani and al-Muhandis`s absence caused a strong blow to Iranian influence in the Middle East, especially in Iraq and the differences between the leaders of IMIS militias began to appear and grow deeper day after another.

Shamkhani's visit to Iraq coincided with the visit of Soleimani`s successor Ismail Qani to Syria. The independent MP Mithal Al-Alousi considered that it is a message from Iran, THE COUNTRY WHICH IS INTERNALLY AND SECURITY EXHAUSTED.

Alousi said: "Tehran believes that assigning Shamkhani to arrange among its allies from the Iraqi parties is a message to America that Tehran is ready to weaken and marginalize the militias and return to a state of agreement with Washington on the Iraqi scene."

The Iraqi political expert Hisham al-Hashimi said on his Twitter page: “Shamkhani came to fill the gaps in the political file that were caused by Soleimani’s absence and THE INABILITY OF HIS SUCCESSOR QANI TO ACCOMPLISH THE MISSION.”

(Mnt Goat – So Shamkhani came to make up for the absence of Qassim Soleimani, IRGC commander who was killed. So there was already one change out from Qani to Shamkhani. Interesting… seems they can’t get a general that can do the job of Soleimani. It seems Trumps plan to just wear down Iran is working. This is why he chose not to start a ground conflict now with Iran. Instead time will just wear them down even more. Eventually either they will starve or come to the bargaining table and negotiate peace a dismantling of their terrorist organization and nuclear ambitions. )

In ending I want everyone to know your constant prayers in the fight against evil (ISIS) and now the corruption in Iraq have worked. God has guided these young men and women on the battle field. He has guided the honest, patriots of Iraq to fight for their homeland. So this new war now on our citizens is underway. New battles are raging every day over corruption. These are battles to save our societies from the corrupt politicians and secret societies who are bent on taking what they want from our current wealth and from future generations without our permission. We must keep praying for the end to the rapid corruption and enslavement of people in Iraq and also in the United States. We must pray for our leaders that they may be anointed by the Holy Spirit and guided to do God’s work. We must stand by them and let them know we are still there to support them, even after the election is over. I have composed a prayer maybe we can all pray today in our own way and until the reinstatement of the Iraq dinar occurs.


PRAYER

“For all leaders of all nations, that they may be anointed by the Holy Spirit to do God’s will and work to bring about abundance and prosperity to their nation.

To fight this waging war on corruption, our freedoms, our liberties, socialist plans and injustice.

To bring all those corrupt to justice and pay for their crimes no matter how high up in the government they are.

That the FREE WORLD may be a shining example for the rest of the entire planet.

In the name of Jesus Christ our King and Savior, Amen”
