Straight Talkin Mike's Transcription of the Recap of Tonight's News
(Listen to the recording for all of the detailed analysis of the articles discussed after each news article listed - the following is just Straight Talkin Mikes recap of the news discussed)
Just some of the comments about the articles discussed before the Recap......(listen to the call for all the detail)
What a Day of News...The Theme for tonight?....The Heat is On....How about Run Like the Wind....we've talked about Under Pressure and the pressure has been turned up to be the heat on the government - The heat has been turned up getting these people to either move or get out of the way - Everybody is fired up - the US has decided to come in and back whats going on over in Iraq for democracy and all of sudden its like a Pyrex dish on a burner
getting turned up - we are on a slow simmer moving towards a rapid boil
Postponement Article - My favorite article of the night
Where is Shabibi? It is our belief he is still in the US or Switzerland - if we look at the political situation it probably behooves him to stay out of the way until this is over so he doesn't end up getting arrested because of someone trying to hang on to a last ditch effort to try to take over the CBI - He is probably attending meetings or spending time with his family out of the country...thats my speculation
He will stay low until things get done with Maliki and get cleared up and he feels confident to come back in the country and start to have talks about whats going on - He's saying if everyone would just keep their hands off my economy and you guys do what you need to do we will take care of what we need to take care of on the monetary side - and you guys get crackin with all of the stuff that we need to get the financial end going
Starting to see things being done on the banking system and we are starting to see the Parliament take some necessary things to be done to help the banking system succeed and to prosper where they are at.....All good things..starting to see movements on all fronts right now and thats very good
Very excited to see these political situations get cleared up.....from where we were a few days ago - its very obvious to see we are moving in the right direction...
Credit Card Article - We know alot of these things are done....This is another education piece for the people on how to use credits cards -financial tools and what they are all about, etc They want to edcuate them on these type of financial tools so will they not be afraid of these type of things
#1 to start using these cards so if they are given these funds on the cards they will now what they are - how it can be used and
#2 They want them to go to the banks and get credit cards because thats what makes the banks thrive
Think about it - you want the banks to be successful - you want the people to be successful....
What do you have to do to make this all successful?
You have to add value to your currency at some point in time to make these things successful because at the value it is now none of this makes sense that they are not going to do anything with it
News will be very fast and furious over the next few days.........Very exciting times seeing all of this happen....everybodys laying the groundwork - Once Sadr came on to the scene things picked up fast....
Exxon signing BIG Iraq Oil Deal - contract to drill 20 wells for $100 million - that was pretty huge with all the fighting going on - and not knowing who is signing contracts - to see these folks to have an interest to come in - Really Really good stuff
We starting to see the parties line up...starting to see things go on...people moving..everybody getting in the right place...its very good stuff....
Late News Article I read before the call started is that they have a American PR firm in Iraq now helping them explain to the people what Maliki has been doing - and to inform the people that they are NOT getting what they were promised...pressure building and building
The article about National Alliance which included with withdrawal of confidence from the government in the event of Non-compliance 15 days and the possible replacements for Maliki.....(listen to the call for the rest of the information about the government articles read)
This is the Key and responded to the other articles we read tonight..Ready to move forward - the National Alliance taking this seriously....Sadr can get people rallying - he has a religous cause going on this weekend and he is getting to people to get out there - he is still a force for Maliki - saying I can get these people out in the streets - If you don't watch what you are doing I can get these people to go out and protest against you
We are seeing all of the things we need to see occur - and you even have Jeffreys in there from the US saying get yourself together - lets get moving in the right direction...All good things
Just excited to see all of these things happening - we have been waiting on the edge to see what these parties are going to do- laying the groundwork and we can see the structure of what they are doing - I get excited because once they get these roadblocks out of the way Parliament can start moving and doing things - they
can get the oil contracts moving ahead and get away from the political crap going on and really get their economy moving - give Shabibi a real chance to RV the currency and do what he needs to do with his economy....
We are starting to see the formation of the growing tsunami (wave) against Maliki...
Starting to see Sadr...Talabini and all the people put together their plan to force Erbil into existence and the power sharing so Iraq can enjoy what it needs to enjoy and all the regions can enjoy that -
Remember we talked about the key is that the Power sharing agreement that has already been voted on
they are already in place - they need to be implemented - they are not being done - we can't see those - but to see that they are being implemented you will see the ministers being put in place and from the Iraqi List you will see the power - see the announcement the government is in place and that they have a complete government - they will make a big deal out of that - celebrate the fact they are moving forward and this is the next phase of their government - you will see lots of articles that these things are getting done
and the key to that whole piece as we have talked about many times is whose going to sign those oil contracts - once they understand and the Central Bank understand thats in place they will feel alot better about their economy not going anywhere
Because when you have the Kurds threatening not to pump oil..not ship oil - do what they are going to do - all of these things can hurt your economy.......It hasn't - but it can
It can cause fluctuations - It can cause people not to buy- It can cause markets to drop - you can cause oil prices to drop when you are a member of OPEC - its not just themselves any more - they are going into the international scene and the things they are going to do are going to affect the world economy - they need to have everything in place including everthing needs to be almost to a T for the reevaluation
We are seeing meetings take place with Talabani & Maliki
We are seeing letters being delivered to Maliki you are on 15 days dude...clock is ticking...going down
and Maliki is saying kinda saying - yeah come to this meeting...come to the Natl Conf....blah blah blah
They want to see some pretty stiff things on the table - they are just not going to show up at any conferences if they don't have the correct power sharing in place because its just a mute point - If someone has all of the power and say come to my house for the party - I have all of the power - Guess what you are not to going to eat the steak that we said you would..you are going to have the dog food we put out for you - we dont want that to overbalance and give him more power that he actually needs at this point in time - its time to cut that off at the stem and move forward
We are seeing the articles come out about the banking system with the credits cards - telling the people that they are and educating the people on them...
Starting to see the Finance Commitee starting to put on the agenda about the banking system to get that all going
Lot of this is probably coming back from the meetings that they just had - IMF telling them lets get this going - lets get this moving - If you really want people taking you serious and your money and economy serious you need to have your banking system ready to go and they have been dragging their feet
They need those regulations that help support the monetary policy that the Central Bank is doing - think of it as a copesetic type of relationship - its a symbiotic relationship where they have to work together and in tandem to get things done - when they start going in different directions it pulls and stresses the economy and things that will get done - inflation can creep in - all of those other things that economists talk about....All of this is being done.......very excited...
I think we will probably see Shabibi head back once he has a pretty good idea how they have Maliki wrapped up
and he's not going to send people out to get people arrested or strike out- theres been some things that happened in Iraq over the last few days still going down - people getting killed - Allawi's cousin assassinated - things that have gone on over there - messages have gone back and forth
The lines are drawn - I think everybody has picked their side and now we are just waiting for this to play out on stage - I think once this plays out its going to be the big point for their economy and we can finally put these things behind us and start looking at what the positive things are about them really getting ready to add value to their currency and watch this whole thing flourish and what will ultimately happen the people will come back and so will Shabibi when it is all said and done.....
Great to see movement in the government - To see these things getting done and checking them off the list eventually
This is not saying this is going to be done in the next few days - Its not possible for it to happen in the next few days - These were huge steps to see these people line up and put their plan out
Yesterday we took steps with these people just getting together - now we have them outlining their plan and putting it together - if we can just stick to this 15 days - we could see a Natl Conf in 2 days
Like we have discussed before all of these things are done - they can be tweaked but its not like they need to be voted on - they are just not implemented - how many times have we heard implementation on just about everything - they voted on giving the money to the people - now its going to be implemented giving the money to the people
Thats great we can vote on things - thats great we all agree on things - but lets actually do them when we say we are going to do them - that's what we reallly need - that's what will make things go -
Thats what will give everybody the confidence in the future this thing is going to take off - give everybody the confidence to really start coming in and investing in Iraq...thats the key - once the investment comes in and people are building and things are going, etc
Whats the natural progression that the economy is going to take?
It is s going to heat up - its going to put people to work ...money will start flowing and in that process its going to be a snowball that can't be stopped
You are going to have to add value to your currency at some point in time in that process of the economy growing - All really good
It was National Prayer Day today.....
This kinda sums it all up for us "God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change..courage to change the things I can and wisdom to know the difference"
I learned a very important lesson this week - you can have all of the money in the world but if you don't have your family, your health and God it doesn't make a difference if this RV's or not....God Bless Everybody
And there you have it...
