The End of American Power?

I received this in an email...thought it was interesting to share...

It made me think of DA...considering the timing of it all, i guess...

The man who predicted...is now forecasting revolution in America

If fractionally true - we are in for a dark harrowing period of economic boondocks.

The Forthcoming Holocaust

The man who predicted the 1987 stock market crash and the fall of the Soviet Union is now forecasting revolution in America , food riots and tax rebellions - all within four years, while cautioning that putting food on the table will be a more pressing concern than buying Christmas gifts by 2012.

Gerald Celente (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerald_Celente), the CEO of Trends Research Institute, is renowned for his accuracy in predicting future world and economic events, which will send a chill down your spine considering what he told Fox News this week.

Celente says that by 2012 America will become an undeveloped nation, that there will be a revolution marked by food riots, squatter rebellions, tax revolts and job marches, and that holidays will be more about obtaining food, not gifts.

"We're going to see the end of the retail Christmas....we're going to see a fundamental shift take place....putting food on the table is going to be more important that putting gifts under the Christmas tree," said Celente, adding that the situation would be "worse than the great depression".

" America 's going to go through a transition the likes of which no one is prepared for," said Celente, noting that people's refusal to acknowledge that America was even in a recession highlights how big a problem denial is in being ready for the true scale of the crisis.

Celente, who successfully predicted the 1997 Asian Currency Crisis, the subprime mortgage collapse and the massive devaluation of the U.S. dollar, told UPI in November last year that the following year would be known as "The Panic of 2008," adding that "giants (would) tumble to their deaths," which is exactly what we have witnessed with the collapse of Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns and others. He also said that the dollar would eventually be devalued by as much as 90 percent.

The consequence of what we have seen unfold this year would lead to a lowering in living standards, Celente predicted a year ago, which is also being borne out by plummeting retail sales figures.

The prospect of revolution was a concept echoed by a British Ministry of Defence report last year, which predicted that within 30 years, the growing gap between the super rich and the middle class, along with an urban underclass threatening social order would mean, "The world's middle classes might unite, using access to knowledge, resources and skills to shape transnational processes in their own class interest," and that, "The middle classes could become a revolutionary class."

In a separate recent interview, Celente went further on the subject of revolution in America .

"There will be a revolution in this country," he said. "It's not going to come yet, but it's going to come down the line and we're going to see a third party and this was the catalyst for it: the takeover of Washington, D. C., in broad daylight by Wall Street in this bloodless coup. And it will happen as conditions continue to worsen."

"The first thing to do is organize with tax revolts. That's going to be the big one because people can't afford to pay more school tax, property tax, any kind of tax. You're going to start seeing those kinds of protests start to develop."

"It's going to be very bleak. Very sad. And there is going to be a lot of homeless, the likes of which we have never seen before. Tent cities are already sprouting up around the country and we're going to see many more."

"We're going to start seeing huge areas of vacant real estate and squatters living in them as well. It's going to be a picture the likes of which Americans are not going to be used to. It's going to come as a shock and with it, there's going to be a lot of crime. And the crime is going to be a lot worse than it was before because in the last 1929 Depression, people's minds weren't wrecked on all these modern drugs - over-the-counter drugs, or crystal meth or whatever it might be. So, you have a huge underclass of very desperate people with their minds chemically blown beyond anybody's comprehension."

The George Washington blog has compiled a list of quotes attesting to Celente's accuracy as a trend forecaster.

"When CNN wants to know about the Top Trends, we ask Gerald Celente."
- CNN Headline News

"Gerald Celente has a knack for getting the zeitgeist right."
- USA Today

"There's not a better trend forecaster than Gerald Celente. The man knows what he's talking about."
- CNBC

"Those who take their predictions seriously ... consider Gerald Celente and the Trends Research Institute."
- The Wall Street Journal

"Gerald Celente is always ahead of the curve on trends and uncannily on the mark ... he's one of the most accurate forecasters around."
- The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"Mr. Celente tracks the world's social, economic and business trends for corporate clients."
- The New York Times

"Mr. Celente is a very intelligent guy. We are able to learn about trends from an authority."
- 48 Hours, CBS News

"Gerald Celente has a solid track record. He has predicted everything from the 1987 stock market crash and the demise of the Soviet Union to green marketing and corporate downsizing."
- The Detroit News

"Gerald Celente forecast the 1987 stock market crash, 'green marketing,' and the boom in gourmet coffees."
- Chicago Tribune

"The Trends Research Institute is the Standard and Poors of Popular Culture."
- The Los Angeles Times

"If Nostradamus were alive today, he'd have a hard time keeping up with Gerald Celente."
- New York Post

So there you have it - hardly a nutjob conspiracy theorist blowhard now is he? The price of not heeding his warnings will be far greater than the cost of preparing for the future now. Storable food and gold are two good places to make a start.

this would have been very useful for my "undeveloped america" assignment i did for uni last year.

"The world's middle classes might unite, using access to knowledge, resources and skills to shape transnational processes in their own class interest," and that, "The middle classes could become a revolutionary class."

sounds like Marxism to me!!!!!!!!!

WOW, after reading this, it reminds mw VERY MUCH of Dark Angel. We might even see this scenario with our own eyes. Scary.

yes i did not understand everything but you compare dark angel with dark angel in some parts ( for example the pulse and hurrican catherina ore the price of the oil). you also give a short overview of the situation in dark angels usa and the usa in our time. and you also mention that one reason for not continuing dark angel is political. i knew this already but good to mention it and you mention the reaction of the us goverment on september the eleventh.
But in general it is a comparison between dark angels usa and todays usa isn't it?

oh the first sentence is not right not dark angel with dark angel. dark angel with the reality

the one this topic is about tells that in only four years america will be an undeveloped country where the people have to fight for their food. The only thing i say is that i can not believe that america will become an undeveloped country this fast because i think they are the mightiest country in the world even after the economic crisis. The situation is dangerous and hard for sure but america will not go down this far. I do not see the usa in this situation in 2012 because they will find a way with other countries to prevent this. but it is only my opinion

i don't know what to say then to convince you, stay living in a dream. You from all people should understand what bad political and ecomomic choises can do in a short period of time, just look at your country's history (which i also mentioned in my assignment). Let's just hope that you are right... for all our sake

I have to admit that i don't know much about economic choices in history because it were not my choices and i don't know anyone in my age who does but as i know is that the usa had a crisis already and i don't know any big and mighty country which has been destroyed because of something like that and because i hope that the worlds countries have learned from their faults in the past and that the right people are in the right positions i think they will make it through the rain. and hope dies last, right? :wink:

don't you know anything about your history?! this happened only 50 years ago!!! and you guys were still feeling its effects untill 1991 and after!!!

i know is that the usa had a crisis already and i don't know any big and mighty country which has been destroyed because of something like that

ever heard of a small place called Russia?!?!?! Once a all mighty super power and today an underdeveloped country!!!!!! proof enough? It has happened, it IS happening and it WILL happen again. Just because we are more technologically advanced than our ancrtors, technology doesn't cure the selfishness and stupidity of mankind
