Bluestar…I was blessed with a phone call from a contact and as a result, I will be at a forum with PM Abadi tomorrow at 5 PM eastern in Washington , DC.    I will do my best to ask a 4 part question tomorrow.

There is no guarantee that I will be allowed to ask my question, but I will try. I will take notes and have a full comprehension of the results by 8 pm tomorrow.

The meeting with President Trump is scheduled for this Wednesday from my sources.

Sincerely,  Bluestar

Frank26:   BTW BLUESTAR ………….. If i could ask A a question it would not be when is Iraq going to RV the currency.

Instead ……. It would be ………… ” Mr Abadi Sir ……. Do YOU want an RV for Your country’s currency in this year of 2017?”

Yes ………… 8 pm on MONDAY CC is open for You.


Cole:  Frank, question for you… is there, (legally) a deadline for Iraq’s (any country for that matter)  budget to be implemented? Of course Iraq can receive special treatment… but is there a “supposed” deadline? If not, why? If so, do you think the IMF/WB/CBI meetings have set a date for this budget?/hcl?/RV?

Frank26:  All IMO  :

#1.) The 1st of the physical year.

#2.) Supposed? …………. Do not know.

#3.) Sovereignty

#4.) Date set for HCL/Budget/RV ? ………………. These and many other questions of this nature will be answered we feel between A’s return from DC up to the middle of April.

One more thing ………………..This is based on a positive outlook.

For those with a negative outlook ……… RUN for the HILLS ….. It’s a SCAM !!! ………….. lol

Just trying to respect everyone ……………..lol
