In the face of the entry of any poor product to Iraq, "pointing out that" Iraq consumes 8 billion eggs a year at a time when we find our national product is a million eggs

Sep 30, 2019

In focus is Homes sales for the Bay area had a steep decline. We also see home prices fell as demand has slowed throughout  2019. The Bay Area wasnt the only downturn in California We see all across southern CA home prices have seen pressure. The bad news is this has been one of the hottest housing markets this side of the great recession. We see a new trend as a result of California's affordable housing crisis.... shared living. people are paying $1,000 for a bunk bed in a shared living pods designed as a single shared living quarters. While $1,000 may seem like a lot for just a bunk compared to the price of a 1 bedroom apartment it doesn't sound as bad. The problem is $1,000 isn't affordable housing.

RV/INTELLIGENCE ALERT - September 30, 2019

(Disclaimer: The following is an overview of the current situation of the world based on intelligence received from several sources which may or may not be accurate or truthful.)

The International Monetary Fund named Bulgarian economist Kristalina Georgieva as the new Chief.

The old guard is being switched out with the new guard to achieve compliance with the GESARA agenda.

In other news, the Deep State Cabal continues to use and manipulate left-leaning individuals to acquire funding.

Also, Ron Paul stated that the Federal Reserve needs to be audited and ended.

The Federal Reserve was never granted the authority under the constitution to create a central bank.

It is clear that the Federal Reserve will soon be audited which is expected to occur after the return of the gold standard.

The return of the gold standard will bring in new Republic Treasury notes also known as United States Notes (USN).

The gold standard will return after the US Dollar drops which is expected after the Dollar Index surpasses 100 points.

However, the Dollar Index surpassing 100 points will not directly cause the USD to drop, rather it is an indicator.

Specific economic events will occur after the Dollar Index surpasses 100 points which will result in the USD taking a 50% drop.

Meanwhile, 10 million Iraqi's are expected to demonstrate on Tuesday calling for financial reform.

According to sources, the Iraqi Dinar may be the first currency to officially revalue.
