The US Dollar Just Became the Official Currency of ISIS

bag-1189868_960_720By John Vibes

It was reported this week that the terrorist group, ISIS, recently mandated U.S. dollars be the legal tender in their occupied territories. From now on, the U.S. dollar will be the only form of currency ISIS accepts for tax payments, fines, and utility payments. This recent policy is vastly different from the gold and silver minted currency that ISIS proposed over a year ago.

In 2014, the group announced they would be minting their very own Islamic dinar, but now it seems they are back to relying on American currency.

Just a few months ago, Turkish police arrested six suspected ISIS members while they were minting coins, but nothing more has been reported about the plan since.


Rumors have circulated in the media that this shift in financial strategy is due to the fact that the ISIS regime is struggling to make ends meet, and that their once plentiful supply of money is now dwindling.

Lisa Monaco, President Barack Obama’s counterterrorism adviser, made sure the U.S. military and the Obama regime took credit for the troubles ISIS is encountering.

“We are seeing our efforts having some effect on their financial flows. And it’s difficult to get a handle on just how much because of the different illicit ways in which they are handling their finances but you’ve seen the efforts that our military has taken to take out cash storage sites, and I think it is our hope and expectation that that will have demonstrable effects. On what order of magnitude, I think it’s difficult to say,” Monaco said.

Russia is also taking credit for the decline in revenues. According to the AP, “Minister Sergei Shoigu reported to President Vladimir Putin on Friday that Russian warplanes destroyed 15 oil refining and storage facilities in Syria and 525 trucks carrying oil during this week’s bombing blitz. He said this deprived IS of $1.5 million in daily income from oil sales.”

Whatever the reason may be, exiles from ISIS-controlled territories have confirmed the group is struggling financially and has experienced a severe drop in morale.

“You can sense the frustration, their morale is down,” one resident told reporters.

One resident of the city of Fallujah in Iraq told the New York Times that ISIS fighters who once made $400 a month aren’t being paid at all and their food rations have been cut to two meals a day.

    It won’t be long before they’re counterfeiting dollars. Could we freeze their assets in US Dollars?

  • This looks like more evidence that the US Government controlls ISIS…. What can people expect when it becomes clearer to people everyday that terrorists have been running the US Government as well.

    • blue579

      The Globalist Elite control ISIS and are rolling out their cashless society around the globe.

      The mafia Godfather of International Banking policy moves, Larry Summers, announces last week the US should eliminate the $100 bill to ostensibly thwart Crime and Terrorism. ??? Now, Joe Six Pack learns from the boob tube that ISIS announces it will be using US currency. What a coincidence – not!

      Funny how the MSM never informed the public that at the Nov 2013 IMF meeting Summers announced it was time to eliminate cash and begin instituting negative interest rates.

      • Doug

        You got it. I’m with ya.

  • Herbert Dorsey

    It is quit reasonable that ISIS would use dollars. After all they are the CIA’s secret army, as documented in “CIA: Crime Incorporated of America”.

    It’s only logical since their US paymasters bankroll them in US dollars and it avoids paying currency exchange charges.

  • drbhelthi

    It is a logical reaction of Judaism to the BRIC organization, Iran requiring that the Euro be used to pay for oil and the trend to remove the dollar as the world-wide, oil-based currency. Basically, the “U.S. Federal Reserve,” owned by constituents of Judaism, wish to maintain their control of the world´s basic, monetary system. The ISIL (ISIS) declaration also evidences Judaism´s MOSSAD´s affiliation with the CIA, which, according to WIKI Spooks and the homepage of veteranstoday, conducted the destruction of the WTC and the firing of a BGM 109 into the Pentagon during 9-11.

    • blue579

      drbhelthi, please consider taking a closer look at VT’s editorial board (as nicely deconstructed by a blogger on redefininggod (dot) com, under a subheading). VT’s Senior Editor Gordon Duff has a close relationship to the military industrial complex as do many of his associates on VT, as well, there are other highly questionable members of VT’s editorial board to include a former Pakistan ISI Chief (recall it was an ISI Chief who wired $100K to Mohammed Atta) and a former Russian General who headed psychological warfare operations. There’s more on the blog and the information is sourced directly form the VT website. BTW, Iran has been actively adopting the NWO paradigm under the IMF, UN World Bank, Agenda 21, Agenda 2030 (recently signed), the “SMART cities, cards, etc.” and began the necessary reforms back in the late 90s after the Iran-Iraq war. I verified this myself with extensive searches. It appears to be more N-dimensional chess to keep us distracted.

      • Doug

        Is VT Virginia Tech, or Veterans today?

        • blue579

          Veterans Today. Professional disinfo mixed in with truth, like a lot of alt media. It helps to become adept at sorting the wheat from the chaff.

          • OldeSoul

            How do you do that? Intuition?

          • drbhelthi

            Assuming that your question is genuine, the following. If you take time to read the information at the following link, you will acquire a basis of information that equips one to better comprehend the myriad of devious, murderous subterfuge for which the “leadership” of the USA has been responsible, since prior to WWII.
            http://beforeitsnews.com/alternative/2013/06/the-overthrow-of-the-american-republic-part-42-2-2675902.html

            My viewpoint is that “intuition” works better as ones knowledge of the history of the subject that is being contemplated, increases. The more one knows about a subject, the better “intuition” works.

          • blue579

            That’s true for serendipity, as my university science professors explained, the more you know, the more likely you are to stumble onto an important discovery.

            To understand deep geopolitical strategy, nonlinear thinking along with grasping a very long historical timeline and wide ranging constructs is key to seeing the big picture Thus, it seems like a good idea to emphasize that the forces that captured and molded the US govt in stages, long before 1913, go back centuries before the formation of the US, e.g. the Vatican and European Royalty. A very, very old system.

          • OldeSoul

            It was a serious question and I posted my “methodology” (LOL) above to blue579. Thanks for the link. I’ve spent many hard years undoing many hard years of education and replacing it with new data, so my database is pretty solid, and you’re right. Without the correct data, intuition doesn’t work well, especially since this is a skill we are also just learning, or rather relearning. Most of us were taught intuition was worthless. In these times, intuition is critical. Thanks for responding.

          • blue579

            FWIW, like you, I seem to be an “old soul”, as well, possessing a natural instinct to spot complex patterns makes it easier to recognize disinfo. Getting good at reverse engineering, i.e. knowing the end game and the players and their history, helps to get into a mindset of “What would I do if I were an evil genius and want to accomplish XYZ?”

            Most people have a difficult time imagining complex plots that run generations, they get confused with the n-dimensional aspect of several layers of deception operating simultaneously, some operations seemingly contradicting each other – that’s the ruse of elaborate intelligence planning, on a longer time scale, the Dialectic strategy.

          • OldeSoul

            Okay, that’s a good method. I have the same basic knowledge base you do, but instead of reverse engineering or left brain analysis, I just let it all stew in and wait for the solution to come to me. I call it “knowing.” When people say, “Where’s your proof?” I don’t have any, don’t need any, I just know. I think it’s some form of telepathy. Unfortunately telepathy doesn’t fly in Internet forums for obvious reasons, but so far I’m batting 1000 as the world plays out.

          • blue579

            I get ya. It’s hard to change world views on internet forums because most people are looking for sound bites and there is way too much background information required to be able to distill it all into a paragraph or two. One method that works well for me is to find the most powerful proven examples I can of why a comment is deeply flawed and then provide a solid frame and counter paradigm supported by historical events somewhat known but not fully perceived. It does take a lot of research, on the level of James Corbett’s work. My track record is shockingly good too and that confirms for me that my road map is on target. For instance, very early on, I KNEW that the Syria dust up was an elaborate cover (more Kabuki theater as Russian, Syrian, and Iranian elites are NWO) to create a bigger version of Al Qaeda with international reach because I understand the NWO players and “rules” and time frame of where they want to be with their end game. I confirmed these vibes scanning the MSM psyop language memes (neurolinguistics). Other times, the intuition comes together so fast, that it seems like pure knowing: “Oh crap, look at that bizarre graphic endlessly looping CNN early coverage of the OKC bombing anniversary, they are setting us up psychologically for another one!” => Boston a day or two later – but I believe that’s part of the pattern recognition process. Who knows, there could be a spiritual element too, maybe there really are indigo souls and that’s why we get it.

          • OldeSoul

            Yes, that’s it in a nutshell, excellent. There is a very spiritual element in all of it, that’s what throws a lot of intelligent people, and if you can sort of accept that and run with it, your intuition + knowledge jumps to a whole new level. Don’t be afraid to combine your knowledge with metaphysics. You cannot find “the whole truth and nothing but the truth” using only one side of your brain. It really helps to steer clear of TV all together, it drains your right brain dry. Nice chatting with you. Thanks.

          • blue579

            I absolutely agree. I also don’t watch the boob tube, it’s nonstop mind control, I caught the CNN bit at the gym. Thanks, same here, very nice chatting with a kindred spirit. Peace and best regards.

          • OldeSoul

            Same to you… don’t TV’s in gyms drive you nuts?

          • blue579

            BTW, great old forest image. My previous handle was CMRedwood – feels like I’ve been around as long as a sequoia.

          • OldeSoul

            Why thanks! I took this photo myself in an old growth cedar forest near Libby, Montana. I was just trying to figure out how to follow you on Disqus so I could keep up with your work.

  • yennikcm

    Well, its the Only currency , aka Barry sends them..

  • Good grief, is there no end to the unraveling of the FACT the the US is financing and pursuing this Global War against HUMANITY by using psychopaths just like Hitler did! NOT IN OUR NAME…IN THE NAME OF “CAPITALISM MUST NOT FAIL”! Screw democratic attempts at Self Governance! Too LATE FOLKS! …. OR IS IT’?

    • blue579

      TPTB set up their crony capitalism fascist monstrosity (NOT a free market system) to fail. They WANT the masses to clamor for their new techno feudal Orwellian system of electronic chains – Technocracy. The banksters are financing this system and they are financing the build out of their prison planet, having infected every corner of the world. Order out of chaos. Problem, reaction, solution. And seductive brain washing.

      The same powers that shouldn’t be brought Hitler to power, also Stalin, Mao, and countless other minions in the middle east, Africa, Latin America, Europe, US.

  • Dio Jones

    The dollar is about to crash if China and Russia get their way so enjoy it while you can…

    Always be a light that is .shininginthedark.

  • Doug

    A perfect reason to ban cash. I’ve read 2 articles today about a cashless society, and the elite would use this as an excuse to ban it.

  • Javier Torres

    I was just about to chime in…and saw some of the comments. Great job guys.

  • blue579

    Thanks for the tip from Skolnick, drbhelthi. I find it curious that VT has been going heavy with the Zionist angle, deflecting off a tangent from the banksters and their world govt bodies, esp. the UN. This coincides with a report from regular Activist Post contributor Dr. Suarez revealing the Los Angeles We Are Change 9/11 Truth group leaders began claiming 9/11 was a strictly Israeli operation and further denied the other false flags such as OKC, Sandy Hook, Boston, etc. It’s classic divide and conquer along with creating layers of obfuscation to confuse as we’ve seen with the congressional dance about the “redacted pages” supposedly putting the finger on the Saudis as the sole masterminds (Abby Martin of RT did the same). They are also, along with cointelpro Jones, pumping the faux WWIII meme like there’s no tomorrow and other narratives that amount to throwing endless chum into the disinfo feeding frenzy. BTW, your reply didn’t make my inbox or is being “detained”, guess the NSA knows there are some well informed Europeans posting on Disqus. 😉
