    By John Lee. Major oil companies including BP, Shell and Lukoil are reported to be cutting investment in Iraq. “You’re going through difficult months,” said Ariel Flores, general manager of the BP-led Rumaila Operating Organization (ROO) told the Wall Street Journal. “You slow down and you make decisions to pause efforts.” Rumaila oil field now has two rigs drilling for new oil, down from as many as six earlier this year, but the company says it still wants to increase production and can do so more cost-effectively by focusing on wells that already exist. Output is expected to remain at around 1.4 million bpd this year. Production at Shell’s Majnoon oil field has stalled at 200,000 bpd, and although it has plans to double output, the company is just focusing on sustaining production this year. Russia’s Lukoil said earlier this year that it needed to invest more just to keep production steady at the giant West Qurna-2 oil field. “We’re not ready to proceed to the next phase of development until our negotiations with Iraq lead to some changes in the economics of the contract,” said Pavel Zhdanov, Lukoil’s head of capital markets and M&A, on an investor call last month.

    This article was originally published by Niqash. Any opinions expressed are those of the author, and do not necessarily reflect the views of*Iraq Business News. Political conflicts, war with extremists and millions of displaced: All these threaten to see Iraq’s next elections postponed, despite the fact that many say they will be the country’s most important in over a decade. Under Iraqi rules, the next provincial elections are due to be held in the country next April. And everyone seems to agree that these elections will be some of the most important the country has held since 2003 when the political landscape changed so radically – even though the federal elections are not until 2018, the provincial elections will be conducted in turbulent conditions, with the voting being the first to happen since the extremist group known as the Islamic State caused such chaos here. There are also a number of new entrants to the political race: The various militias that have been fighting the extremists, who have become increasingly powerful and politically ambitious. Competition will be fierce. The Independent High Electoral Commission, the body tasked with overseeing elections in the country, started preparing for the elections around two months ago and has opened hundreds of offices around the country to update voter records and install new technology to prevent electoral fraud. More than 600 polling stations have opened around the country over the last few weeks. Electoral rolls will be updated there, then the locations for polling booths will be chosen and funds will be made available for purchase of supplies and wages of employees. Following that, campaigning can begin. Despite this preparation though, many are now saying that the provincial elections should be postponed because there are a number of problems, both logistical and political, in the way. Former Iraqi Prime Minister Ayad Allawi is one of the strongest advocates of postponement. A statement issued by his party called the postponement of the provincial elections “a necessity – because of the current state of the county. It is the only way to ensure the biggest number of voters participate,” the statement continued. Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com. Post your commentary below.

    Mississauga_Dad • 13 hours agoHillary and Her Palo Alto High Tech Goons Slapped Me Down!!‏ and I am a CANADIAN citizen living in CANADA!!! We all know that Hillary is in bed with Silicon Valley and its high tech goons. And these Internet companies are not afraid to throw their muscle around to intimidate customers and users if the customer or user wants to access or purchase something which is anti-Hillary. Let me tell you about what PayPal did to me just this week. Do not try to buy the book “Clinton Cash” using PayPal as a method of payment. I did, and I've run into all kinds of problems now with PayPal since immediately thereafter - in fact they refuse to honor any payments I make through PayPal - essentially closing down my account. When I contacted their service department, two lower-level Customer Service employees in the U.S. told me it was because of their Compliance Department not being happy with titles of books that I had ordered. They would not tell me which book - they said they weren't allowed to provide that information. When I finally was able to escalate to two different managers in the U.S. (who by the way would not give me their names only identification numbers) I was told that I had violated the ‘PayPal Acceptable Use Policy’ but again they refused to tell me which particular books were a violation of their policy. They refused absolutely to give me any reason whatsoever for why this was happening. In fact they told me that the Customer Service Representatives didn't know what they were talking about and as managers the only thing that mattered was what they said that I should listen only to them. I tried to tell them I was trying to listen but it was extremely difficult to do so when they obviously did not want to help me or listen to me. They both told me that the information was ’proprietary’ and they were under no obligation to provide it. These managers told me quite bluntly that I was never going to be able to use PayPal again and I should obviously use some other type of payment method and told me that if I didn’t like it that perhaps I should contact their legal department. Since I have bought literally hundreds of books, CDs, DVDs, posters, etc using PayPal as my payment method, I believe that the ONLY reason that PayPal will not honor anything from my account anymore is because they are very upset with anybody buying this particular book because of the very bad publicity it generated for PayPal. So, do not buy this book using PayPal and in fact don't use PayPal at all since they censor anything they want by simply looking at your order and refusing to use your own account and your own money to pay for it. In fact I suggest a boycott of PayPal is in order. Why you might wonder would I be led to such a conclusion? I suggest you check out: http://www.washingtontimes.com... http://freebeacon.com/politics...

    Donald Trump Rape Lawsuit: Did He Abuse 13-Year-Old Girl? Facts To Know About The Child Rape Case Donald Trump, the Republican presidential candidate, has been named as defendant in a rape lawsuit that was filed in New York. Allegedly, the real estate mogul abused a 13-year-old girl, who had been at many parties with billionaires. Donald Trump Rape Lawsuit: It Allegedly Happened In The 90s Jane Doe, the victim who filed the federal lawsuit in June 2016, stated that the rape took place in 1994 at the parties hosted by Jeffrey Epstein. The latter is one of Donald Trump's friends. At that time, Jane Doe was 13 and an aspiring model, who was promised a better career if she joined Epstein's parties. In these parties, Doe had allegedly been with Donald Trump four times, where Trump allegedly tied her on the bed and sexually attacked her on thier latest encounter. She pleaded for him to stop,was instead struck on the face and screamed at by her aggressor, who proceeded to rape her. I'm just going to leave this here. #Trump2016 https://t.co/fMilwSMZAX — Paul D (@Paulmd199) July 5, 2016 Donald Trump Rape Lawsuit: Jane Doe Has A Witness Jane Doe said that she kept quiet because Donald Trump threatened to hurt her family. Jane Doe also filed a rape lawsuit against Donald Trump in April 2016 in a court in California. Heavy reports that this case was tossed out by the judge in May 2016 due to her failure to state it was a civil rights claim. The paperwork also did not indicate her address and phone number, but stated her real name. Jane Doe filed the case anew in New York. Jane Doe's latest lawsuit has been bolstered by a witness, a Tiffany Doe, who supposedly recruited the girls for Epstein's parties. Tiffany said in her statement that she witnessed Donald Trump force himself on Jane, per Huffington Post. Donald Trumps' lawyers have already denied the accusations. Donald Trump Rape Lawsuit: Jeffrey Epstein's Connection Jane Doe also named Jeffrey Epstein in her lawsuit because it was he who allegedly imprisoned her at his parties and sexually assaulted her. Epstein is a registered sex offender, who has many high profile friends, per New York Magazine. Donald Trump Rape Lawsuit: Other Women's Accusation Jane Doe isn't the first to come out accusing Donald Trump of rape. Jill Harth also filed a $125 million sexual assault lawsuit in 1997. However, the case was reportedly dismissed, "voluntarily" and "without prejudice," per Law Newz. Even Ivana Trump, Donald Trump's ex-wife, allegedly stated in their divorce deposition in 1990 that she was raped by her husband. Daily Beast reports that Donald Trump was "cruel and inhuman" to his ex-wife, which was one on the grounds for their divorce.

    Two Smoking Gun’s Found and Exposed: Hillary is Toast Hilary Clinton is in serious trouble and we are not talking about her health. Two very damaging facts came from Wikileaks Assange and he said the worst is yet to come, closer to the election. So damaging not only will she likely loose voter confidence, she could be facing prison time yet again, and it going to be hard for the FBI to excuse these crimes. We expect Obama will pardon Clinton prior to leaving office, to save her from serving a life sentence for her crimes http://conservativepapers.com/news/2016/09/22/two-smoking-guns-found-and-exposed-hillary-is-toast/?

    Trump Rape Accuser to Refile Suit in New York By JOSH RUSSELL MANHATTAN (CN) - A lawsuit filed by an anonymous plaintiff accusing Donald Trump of raping a teenager in the 1990's and threatening to kill her family, will be re-filed with an additional witness on board, the woman's attorney revealed Thursday. Thomas Meagher, attorney for the Jane Doe plaintiff said they plan to re-file the complaint, accompanied by a new witness afidavit, as soon as the end of next week. The original lawsuit was voluntarily dismissed on September 16th. The June 20, 2016, complaint accused the Republican presidential nominee and billionaire Jeffrey Epstein of rape, sexual misconduct, criminal sexual acts, sexual abuse, forcible touching, assault, battery, intentional and reckless infliction of emotional distress, duress, false imprisonment, and defamation. It also included two declarations of support of the Jane Doe plaintiff's request for protective order. The first declaration, signed by Jane Doe herself, detailed Trump's alleged "savage sexual attack" on the then-13-year-old plaintiff. The plaintiff claims she was raped by Trump during a 1994 summer party thrown by billionaire Jeffrey Epstein at an Upper East Side mansion on East 71st St. The Jane Doe plaintiff claims Trump ignored her loud pleas to stop, struck her with an open hand and threatened to harm, if not kill her and her entire family if she ever revealed details of the assault. The second declaration was signed by pseudonymous Tiffany Doe, who said she was hired by Jeffrey Epstein throughout the 1990s to recruit adolescent women to attend the billionaire's parties. Tiffany Doe claims she convinced the then-13-year-old plaintiff to attend the parties as a means to break in to New York's professional modeling world. In her declaration, Tiffany Doe says she witnessed four sexual encounters in which Jane Doe was forced to have sex with Trump, and two encounters involving the plaintiff and Jeffrey Epstein. The Tiffany Doe declaration included Epstein's threats against her and her family for disclosing the details of any sexual abuse of minors by Epstein and his party guests, swearing under penalty of perjury that she understands that her and her family's lives are "now in grave danger." The complaint asserts that because the litigation involves highly sensitive matters of very personal nature, identification of the anonymous plaintiff "would pose a risk of retaliatory physical harm to her and to others." The plaintiff says after initially filing her complaint in California last spring, she received threatening phone calls. That lawsuit was later dismissed. Meagher's law office is located in Princeton, New Jersey. Alan Garten, executive vice president and general counsel for the Trump Organization, told Courthouse News via email that Meagher's allegations "are completely frivolous and appear to be politically motivated." "Accordingly, we have warned Mr. Meagher that in the event he decides to refile his complaint we will seek to have him sanctioned," Garten said.

    A Third Woman Alleges She Was Sexually Assaulted By Donald Trump (2) But Harth says “the topper” that motivated her to speak publicly was when Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, stated on CBS This Morning in March that her father was “not a groper.” Harth says taken together, Trump and Ivanka’s discrediting remarks have negatively impacted her life and her business. “He didn’t have to say anything. For once, he should have closed his mouth. He didn’t have to comment. We were on great—not great, I’ll take that back—we were on good terms, friendly terms. He didn’t—he started this. What is happening now is of his own making, OK? I was quiet.” @realDonaldTrump @nytimes I didn't lie. You did. stop having your daughter lie for you. You don't give a dam what damage this caused me — Jill Harth (@jillharth) June 24, 2016 Although there’s been scant coverage of the allegations, Harth is the third woman to accuse Trump of sexual assault. In June, a lawsuit was filed in Manhattan federal court accusing Trump of raping a 13-year-old girl in 1994, the same era as Harth’s attack. That attack allegedly took place during a party held at the home of Trump’s admitted billionaire friend, Jeffrey Epstein, who in 2008 served 13 months in jail for soliciting underage girls for sex. (Epstein remains a registered sex offender.) Death and Taxes quoted directly from the lawsuit at the time it was filed: In the court filing, “Defendant Trump” allegedly “initiated sexual contact with Plaintiff at four different parties. On the fourth and final sexual encounter with Defendant Trump, Defendant Trump tied Plaintiff to a bed, exposed himself to Plaintiff, and then proceeded to forcibly rape Plaintiff. During the course of this savage sexual attack, Plaintiff loudly pleaded with Defendant Trump to stop but with no effect. Defendant Trump responded to Plaintiff’s pleas by violently striking Plaintiff in the face with his open hand and screaming that he would do whatever he wanted.” In the next section, she adds that “Immediately following this rape, Defendant Trump threatened Plaintiff that, were she ever to reveal any of the details of the sexual and physical abuse of her by Defendant Trump, Plaintiff and her family would be physically harmed if not killed.” Another anonymous woman, identified as “Tiffany Doe,” corroborates those charges, and says she witnessed the rape. As AlterNet previously noted, “Tiffany Doe testified that between 1991 and 2001, Epstein put her on his payroll, tasking her with bringing underage girls to parties.” The earliest charge of rape against Trump come from his first wife, Ivana Trump. The allegations were made during a deposition taken during the contentious divorce between the two. The book, written by reporter Harry Hurt III and revisited in a Daily Beast article last year, includes a graphic description of a “violent assault” on Ivana by Trump. Before the book was released, Ivana recanted her accusations in a statement provided by Trump’s own lawyers: “During a deposition given by me in connection with my matrimonial case, I stated that my husband had raped me. n one occasion during 1989, Mr. Trump and I had marital relations in which he behaved very differently toward me than he had during our marriage. As a woman, I felt violated, as the love and tenderness, which he normally exhibited towards me, was absent. I referred to this as a ‘rape,’ but I do not want my words to be interpreted in a literal or criminal sense.” While coverage of the various rape and attempted rape allegations against Trump haven’t gained much traction with the media, they seem to have grabbed he attention of the billionaire himself. Earlier this month, Jill Harth granted a sit-down interview to LawNewz founder Dan Abrams. In a subsequent piece examining the media’s virtual silence on the allegations, Mediaite (another Abrams property) noted that Trump seems to have gone to great pains to refute Harth and call her sanity into question: The only one who seems to be taking the sexual assault allegations against Donald Trump seriously is Donald Trump...The media blackout would be odd enough on its own, but odder still was that eight minutes after sister site LawNewz.com posted Dan Abrams’ interview with Jill Harth, Donald Trump himself got on the phone with LawNewz editors to dispel the story. In the middle of the pandemonium that was the RNC, Trump found his way to a phone, spoke with LawNewz editors, and characterized Jill Harth as a crazy, lovesick liar who had already been discredited by none other than the National Enquirer. “If you look in the National Enquirer, there was a story in there that she was in love with me. The woman has real problems,” Trump told LawNewz.com in a phone call. “It’s ridiculous, I’ve never touched this woman.” Harth has said she wants an apology from Trump, though she seriously doubts she’ll receive one from a man who, by all appearances, has never felt contrition in his life. “I’m not going to get an apology from him,” Harth told the Guardian. “That would be nice, but he—I don’t fully expect one. But he really should have been taught, if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything, OK? Don’t call me a liar."

    A Third Woman Alleges She Was Sexually Assaulted By Donald Trump (1) Read her claims before you dismiss her. Kali Holloway/ AlterNet July 22, 2016 On Wednesday, in the midst of the Republican National Convention, new allegations emerged of sexual assault committed by Donald Trump. This is the third woman who has accused the GOP presidential nominee of sexual assault. The latest allegations of unwanted sexual contact by Trump come from Jill Harth, a makeup artist and business associate of the billionaire in the early 1990s. According to Harth, Trump sexually harassed her on numerous occasions, including cornering her in his daughter Ivanka’s bedroom and attempting to have sex with her. In 1997, Harth filed a lawsuit detailing Trump’s alleged repeated efforts to force her to have sex with him, as well as a number of other outrageous and inappropriate behaviors. Harth, who gave an interview to the Guardian earlier this week, says she first met Trump back in 1992, when she and her business partner and then boyfriend George Houraney were trying to recruit Trump as a partner in their beauty pageant event. The New York Times cites a 1996 deposition in which Harth describes their first meeting with Trump, when Houraney gave a business presentation to woo Trump into becoming a financial backer of the project. According to Harth, that marked the first of Trump's many unwanted sexual advances. Donald Trump stared at me throughout that meeting. He stared at me even while George was giving his presentation...In the middle of it he says to George, “Are you sleeping with her?” Meaning me. And George looked a little shocked and he said, “Well, yeah.” And he goes, “Well, for the weekend or what?” In Harth’s complaint, she says that at a dinner meeting at the Plaza Hotel the following night, Trump groped her under the table repeatedly, violating her “‘physical and mental integrity’ by attempting to touch private parts.” The suit goes on to state that Trump introduced Harth to Plaza Hotel staff as his “new girlfriend” and, after a series of lewd comments about women, blurted out to Houraney, “You know, there’s going to be a problem. I’m very attracted to your girlfriend.” Following several phone calls during which Harth alleges he tried to get her to come to late night meetings at his house, she says Trump insisted on a business meeting at his Mar-A-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida. Harth told the Guardian that in the midst of a group tour that included Houraney, Trump "forcibly" pulled her away from the group and into his kids’ bedroom, where they were alone. “He tried to make his move. He pushed me up against the wall and had his hands all over me and tried to get up my dress again. And I had to physically say, ‘What are you doing? Stop it.’ It was a shocking thing to have him do this, because he knew that I was with George. He knew they were in the next room.” “If it’s not consensual and somebody pushes you up against a wall and is all over you? If I hadn’t pushed him away, I’m sure he would’ve just went for it. He was aggressive. And he has a sense of entitlement. And he thinks everybody’s in love with him -- every woman. I’ve heard him say things like this.” Earlier this month, Harth granted a sit-down interview to LawNewz founder Dan Abrams, in which she also alleged that Trump was clear his behavior was predatory. Harth: I had to push him off of me. Abrams: So there was no ambiguity that these were unwanted sexual advances? Harth: Absolutely, on my part. In his brain, he thinks everybody wants him. Abrams: Right, but putting aside what he thought. In terms of the way you reacted, in terms of what you did, you made it very clear that these were unwanted advances? Harth: Absolutely. When someone says ‘stop it,’ that’s clear." The 1997 complaint, which explicitly refers to the attack as “attempted ‘rape’” and says it “included touching of private parts,” states that after the assault, Trump implied that Harth should “keep her mouth shut.” (According the papers, “as attempted to leave the premises, defendant Trump again became sexually abusive by intimately touching plaintiff’s person” and says she “immediately became nauseated and vomited profusely.”) The suit goes on to detail follow-up calls by Trump with requests for sex, as well as in-person unwanted touching at subsequent business-related events. Harth alleges Trump continued to pressure her to leave Houraney, even as he was divorcing first-wife Ivana and dating would-be second wife Marla Maples. “Trump did everything in his power to get me to leave him ,” Harth told the Guardian. “He constantly called me and said, ‘I love you, baby. I’m going to be the best lover you ever had. What are you doing with that loser, you need to be with me, you need to step it up to the big leagues.’ He was constantly working on me during that time and that took a toll on me.” Houraney, from whom Harth is now divorced, says while he wasn’t present for most of the scenes described in the 1997 complaint save for the initial meeting with Trump, he firmly believes Harth is telling the truth. “I know they’re all true,” he told the Guardian. “I knew her way too long to think she could make up stuff like that. It wasn’t in her. She wasn’t capable of making up the things she said in that thing.” Harth dropped her lawsuit a few weeks after it was filed. The Guardian notes that around the same time, Houraney and Trump settled a business dispute for an undisclosed amount. She says she and Trump were on shakily “friendly” terms after that, and that she wanted to move on, which is why she remained quiet for two decades. That changed, Harth says, after the launch of Trump’s presidential campaign when press outlets dug up the old complaint and Trump responded by calling her a liar. She also says she has voicemails documenting calls from Trump’s office asking her to recant her allegations following the New York Times article.
