"Sweet" - GCR/RV Intel SITREP - Friday - September 22. 2017

Received via email for publication at 8:08 AM EDT. ~ Dinar Chronicles



So the RV process began officially at noon on Wednesday. Sweet.

This coincided with sundown in the Middle East on Tuesday September 20, 2017 which was Wednesday in China.

All nations then went gold backed by noon Thursday September 21, 2017.

Abadi's speech was to then roll out and away we went with out numbers spilling out at 8pm EDT.

This a Wednesday / Thursday process was engaged we were told. The military was ready and had declared martial law and informed local police forces of such.

Private redemptions were to go all through the weekend. And yet... bupkis... which translates from Yiddish to mean "shivering shit balls."

Blame Kurdistan! Yup, Kurdistan!

Although Israel got to Kurdistan somehow made them to pull back with a snap referendum on September 25 (after all countries must be legally gold backed by their own Constitutions) and asked for 3% more (20% from 17%) for their oil revenues as a good standing member of the new Iraq government.

This in exchange for what exactly? Bupkis that's what.

Israel has no more money coming in from anywhere. Netanyahu just went around the world begging for scraps to stay afloat before coming to the UN with utterly empty pockets.

Because Abadi doesn't really have a signed majority constitution without the Kurds, so there can be no rate because Kurdistan pulled back on the pre-negotiated percentage trying to create leverage at the last second.

Keep in mind all Kurdistan has fiscally is oil sales, and Arab businessmen are notorious for this last second pull back strategy.

Israel technically didn't do this, but they had a hand in it as they have in North Korea and of course with Trump.

Chaos. Chaos. Chaos.

The Kurds wanted to squeeze in a sweetener. And Israel offered to help by creating enough ancillary chaos to give them an advantage, as long as Israel got free or reduced oil prices to fuel their economy.

Crazy world, right?!

As of 2am EDT we don't know what if anything was been resolved. But that's what stopped Abadi at the UN today.

Nobody wants Israel to have any assets whatsoever moving forward, so the old cabal power structure is literally fighting for their survival on a daily basis--as is Trump.

Palestine is even threatening a one state solution without Israel.

Think about that statement! What a potential reversal of fortune!

I was also told the RV release Wednesday was authorized by the indigenous tribes of humanity last week, but not from Beijing, rather from Ophir.

Ophir? What the...

So in doing a little research, it's not surprising the place where Ophir is possibly was located per as Spanish History Books as also being King Solomon's mines; and where he sent all his ships to retrieve his gold that ultimately built the temple in Jerusalem... wait for it... you guessed it, the Marhalika aka the Philippines.



And this why the RV had to start in the Philippines and not Iraq. Sorry Dinarland. But hey, thanks for the twelve plus years of constant conference calls, updates, blogs and online recaps.

Balderdash! Balderdash! Balderdash!

I don't think we will wait much longer now, the world community won't and cannot tolerate delays now.

Perhaps they'll wait for the weekend to start, but that's about it. Hang in there Human Angels.

Sovereign nations technically have until 6pm on Sunday to get their currencies in the que to crank up their trade platform profits, which is what we've now been told by multiple sources.

So if you're not gold backed with your currency by midnight Sunday morning, you literally will have no money on Ovtober 1, 2017 and thus will no longer have relevance and thus exist as a sovereign nation anymore.

Simple as that.

So we're waiting on Iraq (China) and Kurdistan (Israel) to make pono under some tent in the desert, so that Iraq can start trading their newly revamped gold backed currency on the Asian trading platforms that literally will generate all the new cash on our modem financial system.

Abadi has huge egg on his face given the Jumbotrons he had up everywhere ready to hear his UN speech--which never came. Brutal stuff. Poor Iraq. So close, yet so far.

The Chinese are forced to wait because Iraq constitutes their third largest crude oil partner as well as fifth largest gold producer.

Wanna see their first gold producer.



Follow the invested money dots across Africa to see what China really thinks of the African continent and Zimbabwe minerals specially.

Here are a few more fun Africa / China info-graphs to contemplate while we wait because I'm beyond bored too waiting for my bankers to call. Snooze city man...









As for Israel (which means "to wrestle with God") their hidden dark nobility leaders who once illegally formed the Nation of Israel in 1948 are all pure evil, but gone.

They created a false world of value, and per usual found themselves on the wrong side of history and thus the wrong side of God.

Bad place to be. Deadly place actually.

Hebrew is a word that means "wanderers" for precisely this reason. When you lie, cheat and steal as your purpose for being alive... this is what happens when God has had enough. And every-time too.

Hmmm, makes me wonder if they are still worried about not having a homeland on this their 5778th New Year of Rosh Hashanah?

What if by some magnificent coincidence Israel just ceased to exist one day in the future. Poof. Gone. No mas.

Is that even possible? Would the world be a better place without Israel? A safer place? Could this happen in our lifetime?

Not only can it, but it's happening right in front of your eyes and you're living witness to it.

Keep your eyes open for the fireworks folks. Because the Trump / Manafort / Ukraine / Netanyahu financial treason connection is coming to a cable channel near you thanks to the Bob Mueller investigation.

And then all of this nonsensical Iran Nuclear / Paris Agreement pullout insanity will be revealed for what it really is--the political desires of Israel to influence a sitting US President for their benefit--which sadly has ALWAYS been the case since the county's founding in 1776.

The Rothschild Balfour Declaration of 1917 was just the culmination of centuries worth of prep work.

Meaning the hidden controllers of Israel, USA, Inc, Ukraine, European Union, North Korea and even ISIS are all the same group, same genetic family... and here the kicker... they ain't all human either.

Yo-Yo you're insane. Maybe.

But if I'm proven right about the ZIM value, maybe I'm accurate in just about everything else including President Ryan and Donna Trump with no schmeckel.

Look that one up in the Yiddish handbook.

Then it's gonna get awakened between us... my detractors I mean and myself... don't worry, I'll step aside, go back to my neutral corner... figure out some other impossible scenario to get addicted to and solve before my batteries run out... like hemmed jean shorts as acceptable fashion.

How did that happen? And can such a trend of bad taste be reversed?

Believe don't believe, either way you are 100% right... as there can only be one truth. Sobeit.

Btw: The Human Angel Website is a very special place to call home moving forward for his community and your family of treasure hunters turned angelic beings.

Showme is the best aligned steward to caretake this unique group of souls to stage next level. He's done everyone a solid with this project portal. Trust me on this one. You'll be blown away late Saturday night when it releases.

Still time to sign up via your email at www.humanangelservices.com if you have yet to do so, recommend to friends and family please submit a humanitarian or jobs creation project if you have it. Domestic and international.

God is with us.

"Its a Great Privilege to Have a Human Body" by Victor - 9.22.17

Entry Submitted by Victor at 5:42 AM EDT on September 22, 2017

Its a Great privilege to have a human body, many don't and many did not make the cut........You did. Why?....... did many NOT make the cut? Many where afraid of.........."Failure"......Yeah. Can you imagine that, but that is the Truth. I recently heard a Rose who is Still a Rose, bemoan and still worry about that, even after having a body and ...."Being Here"..... for the Great RV. Kind of silly how we forget our own powerful attributes and ....."Blessings"..........if I may borrow from the Religious terminology bin. We are good enough to be willing to risk it ALL on this Human trip.

Many did not "do the deed" or show up here. If you showed up here with a body you risked ....."Everything".....Your memory is wiped clean and you risk the chance of taking a big step backwards in your evolutionary trip back Home. You could get trapped and attracted to the Cabal ways and means. If you did that and fell for that trap, simply because you ...."Forgot" ....who you are. You could end up at the great Eternal sun Recycling. That is a pretty big set back that could cost you who knows how much time?.......So the risks of having a human body here is very real.

Yeah........you are good enough and brave enough and had enough of the fortitude and desire to help others. You made it and You probably did not come on just a sight seeing tour if you are great Galactic "Wanderer". You came on a ........"Mission From God"........you like a great Blues bother or Blues sister. You came to help others and not just start a band. So when people tell you that you are not good enough, or that you will never make it or that, You are making a big mistake by not walking like an Egyptian. Well...... tell them to....." Go Fish"......and find another card to describe YOU. You are more better than that and You have the body that many Sages don't.

You Risked it all and YOU have a Human body. A body that is much in demand and much coveted by others. So coveted that even the real Obummer had a hard time in getting one. Kind of had to force his way here......Well, that what some rumors say. Now also think about All those channeled Voices. NONE of those Great wise voices have a body. They did not make the cut or they where too busy elsewhere or they where not willing to take the risk of it. You did !......They did not.

Think about All the Michael channels out there, or all the Quan Ying and All the Jesus channels now so popular.....etc........etc.......Lots of famous names. Yet, how come none of these sages and Saviors chose to come in their own body?........while you did? So You are good enough.

Think about this. If you are Jesus and someone is "speaking in your name", what recourse do you have when they don't tell the Truth or get your message wrong?...... Not Much. A great Saviors work in a way becomes no better than the last channel or the "last convert"......or any other walk in who choose to ....."Accept" ......YOU as his Savior. Wow........kind of a risk and reputation problem.......IMO. If you want it done right, You got to come do it yourself.

You can take Yosef for example. He is speaking in someones name, is he not? Well what if all his predictions and pontifications do not pan out as he says?.......Who does he hurt? Since he is just working for the ......"MAN"...... or only doing the WORK...... as he is instructed. YEAH.......the physically absent Saviour takes the blame. Well that would sure ruin a great deal of "positive work" that has been done over the ages, especially since you are not here to defend yourself and speak for Yourself.

People have wondered at the multiple personalty appearances of some Intel providers and I don't have any great answers or insight into this issue, yet......May be the simplest answer might have a clue. If you constantly make predictions that don't come true. You do a great disservice to the ...."ONE" ....you say you are working and speaking FOR. That is a pretty big risk and a cunning way to destroy a ....."good"....reputation.....that is the risk HERE. I really don't know about any ones intent.?....but that is the downside of speaking for others and for just ....."speaking".......even.

Not saying anything since I don't know, but that is the risk that anyone runs when they speak for...."Others" ....or Sages and Saviors. That is a realm for those that have the goods and the qualifications. To speak for those entities is a great responsibility that can be abused. For example now..........If Yosef fails........who fails with him? Yeah.......they big guy with no body this time to defend himself with. I think we will find out pretty soon how it plays out. With the latest predictions there is no where else to go now.

We are at the "event" Horizon one way or the other.

So to speak in the name of ....."Others".........or great Saviors is a job that has a few risks in it. Or could mean that you yourself will find some ....."Karmic"...repercussions or also Greta rewards if YOU do have it ......"Right"......this time.

Yet ......all the rest of us............"YOU ARE HERE"............ALSO........and many Greats are not here and have to relay messages through other sources like channels or have to find some kind of a walk in slot to get what everyone with a body that is here already has. We have ......"Credibility"........and a Voice. We have made the cut. We made the cut for an Infinite number of "Good" reasons. We where good enough and brave enough and willing to worked enough and risk it ALL.

We are here and that is all the ......."Approval".....we need. Source said we where ......"Good Enough".......and we got the brass ring from the BIG.....BIG GUY......to go play on the Merry go round and experience some JOY, while others have to find converts and channels to speak for them. YOU can speak for yourself and be your own Man or your own Woman. And you might even get some Zimmers to buy some toys with or to do some good works.

So ...........YOU are good enough and you have the ........"Proof".....of Your worth. YOU Have a Human Body .........while many other non-incarnates are only just looking in and wishing they had a voice to speak with and a body to act with.

They did not do IT. YOU DID IT!.

MUCH LOVE VICTOR.

"Re: Please, Make Huge Mistakes"

Entry Submitted by Grateful Gal at 2:23 AM EDT on September 22, 2017


"Please, Make Huge Mistakes" by The Happily Ever After Agency - 9.21.17

Happy to hear your great news, E J! Coincidentally, I am sitting up way too late reading about the Mercy Corps global charity. Sadly, when you look at who is on their Board of Directors now, it looks suspicious. If you wish to give the names of organizations or charities in South Africa (or other places) that are OK to fund, there are many like me who would appreciate that. (whenever you get your personal situation in order.) I was thinking along the lines of hiring an extraordinary amount of Compliance Personnel to work alongside them, and the Safety teams that you describe are a great idea too. Keep the good ideas coming, Bro!

Onward and Upward

Now that the Solar Eclipse Meditation reached critical mass and the Emergency Meditation to dissipate Hurricane Irma has been so very successful….

....it is time to prepare for the Equinox Unity Meditation which will address the root cause of all these storms and earthquakes occurring all over Gaia's surface – the plasma octopus itself.

“You need to understand that this planet is not liberated yet and planetary conditions will not significantly improve before the Event. Therefore it is still very important that we keep strengthening the New Atlantis energy grid around the planet with cintamani stones and meditations.....

......What is remaining is whatever is left of the Yaldabaoth entity with toplet plasma bombs and plasma primary anomaly in its body....Yaldabaoth entity is beginning to realize that its time is almost over and is reacting very strongly to the increasing incoming energies from the Galactic Center. This is the reason for extremely difficult energies and situations many are experiencing right now."

-Cobra, September 5th, 2017

This Equinox, we will focus on strengthening the Earth grids and the Human grids and on completely dissolving the Yaldabaoth entity, once and for all.

Mugabe Calls Trump 'Giant Gold Goliath' at the UN

WATCH: Mugabe at UN stands up to 'Giant Gold Goliath' Trump

06:00 22/09/2017


New York - Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe did not mince words at the United Nations Thursday about Donald Trump, mocking the US president as the "Giant Gold Goliath".

Addressing the UN General Assembly, where reproaches of other leaders are generally less personal in tone, the 93-year-old veteran leader took Trump to task both on policy and appearance.

"Some of us were," Mugabe said, pausing for emphasis, "embarrassed, if not frightened, by what appeared to be the return of the biblical Giant Gold Goliath".

Watch the video below as Mugabe speaks


"Are we having a return of Goliath to our midst, who threatens the extinction of other countries?" he asked, triggering applause in the hall as two junior US diplomats listened expressionless.

"And may I say to the United States president, Mr Trump, please blow your trumpet - blow your trumpet in a musical way towards the values of unity, peace, co-operation, togetherness, dialogue, which we have always stood for and which are well-writ in our very sacred document, the Charter of the United Nations."

Trump stunned longtime UN watchers on Tuesday by threatening from the podium to "totally destroy" North Korea, describing its leader Kim Jong-Un as "Rocket Man".

Mugabe has tense relations with Western nations which have imposed sanctions to press for more democracy in Zimbabwe, where he has ruled for 37 years.

In his UN address, Mugabe voiced particular concern over Trump's plan to withdraw the United States from the Paris accord on climate change.

Mugabe urged co-operation "in order to halt the inexorable march towards the destruction of that upon which our own existence depends."

Equifax Directed Customers to Fake Site After Data Breach

After Massive Data Breach, Equifax Directed Customers To Fake Site

September 21, 20175:13 PM ET

MERRIT KENNEDY



Equifax is facing criticism because after the security incident it chose to create an entirely new domain for customers to check whether they were affected.Mike Stewart/AP

After a cyberattack that potentially exposed the personal information of 143 million people, the credit reporting agency Equifax set up www.equifaxsecurity2017.com, a website to help people determine whether they had been affected.

However, on multiple occasions over the span of weeks, the company's official Twitter account responded to customer inquiries by apparently directing them to a fake phishing site called www.securityequifax2017.com.

Luckily, the fake site — blocked or flagged by many Internet browsers, then taken down Wednesday afternoon — was set up by software engineer Nick Sweeting to educate people rather than steal their information. A banner on the top read: "Cybersecurity Incident & Important Consumer Information Which Is Totally Fake, Why Did Equifax Use A Domain That's So Easily Impersonated By Phishing Sites?"

Still, it's an embarrassing development for the company that is struggling to regain public trust, especially considering that customers may have been directed to the fake site at precisely the moment they were seeking reassurance about the safety of their data.

The personal information leaked earlier this month included names, Social Security numbers, birthdates, addresses and, in some cases, driver's license numbers and credit card information.

It's not clear exactly how many times Equifax tweeted the fake site. Sweeting posted a screenshot that appears to show three different tweets, dating to Sept. 9.



Not only did they tweet the wrong link, they tweeted it 3 times. #Equihax
-- Nick Sweeting (@thesquashSH) 1:54 PM - Sep 20, 2017

"All posts using the wrong link have been taken down. We apologize for the confusion," an Equifax spokesperson told NPR, adding:

"Consumers should be aware of fake websites purporting to be operated by Equifax. Our dedicated website for consumers to learn more about the incident and sign up for free credit monitoring is https://www.equifaxsecurity2017.com/, and our company homepage is equifax.com. Please be cautious of visiting other websites claiming to be operated by Equifax that do not originate from these two pages."

Equifax is facing criticism because after the security incident it chose to create an entirely new domain for customers to check whether they were affected — www.equifaxsecurity2017.com — rather than keep the response page within its own primary domain, equifax.com.

That makes it more difficult for customers to determine whether it is a real Equifax site, even as they are being asked to provide their last name and a portion of their Social Security number to check the safety of their personal information. Equifax did not immediately respond to NPR's request for comment about its choice of domain.

"I recommend companies direct people to a site that is trusted and part of their main domain, in order to make sure that something like this doesn't happen," Tarah Wheeler, a cybersecurity consultant at Red Queen Technologies, told NPR. "I'm grateful that the domain was registered by someone who was doing educational work and pointing out a problem like this, and not someone who's malicious."

That's because she has seen multiple sites that are close in name to www.equifaxsecurity2017.com but are actually phishing scams. These schemes are "100 percent anticipated," Wheeler says, and a reason many large companies buy up domains that are common misspellings of their domain.

"It's in everyone's interest to get Equifax to change this site to a reputable domain," Sweeting, a software engineer based in MedellĂ­n, Colombia, told NPR in a written statement. He called the site "dangerously easy to impersonate," adding that it "only took me 20 minutes to build my clone."


"The 'wget' command on linux allows you to download a website, including all images, html, css, etc. Using this command, it was very easy to just suck their whole site down and throw it on a $5 server. It currently has the same type of SSL certificate as the real version, so from a trust perspective, there's no way for users to authenticate the real one vs my server. They should either change it to https://equifax.com (with an EV cert), or take it down altogether.

"I hope other companies are able to learn from this mistake, and remember to publish content only on trusted domains. ... I just hope the employee who posted the tweet doesn't get fired, they probably just Google'd for the URL and ended up finding the fake one instead. The real blame lies with the people who originally decided to set the site up badly."

Wheeler stresses that responding to a security incident like this is "extraordinarily difficult."

"The level of anger and hatred being directed at Equifax doesn't take into account how difficult good cybersecurity incident response is to pull off," she says, adding that it's crucial for companies to rehearse their response in advance. Equifax's response to this breach, she says, "showed I think very clearly that the kind of preparation that goes into good incident response hadn't been done in advance."
