Gerald Celente: EU Collapses In 90 Days, Bank Holiday and War (GLD, SLV, EWI, VGK, EWG)

January 4th, 2012

Dominique de Kevelioc de Bailleul: Twenty-two months of hysteria of an impending European financial collapse, starting with Greece in March of 2010, will finally come to an end in 2012, according to the founder of Trends Research Institute, Gerald Celente.

Hysteria of the horrid possibility of a European meltdown and the dire implications for the world economy a collapse will end, as the event finally turn into unequivocal reality by April 1, with accusations of ‘fear mongering’ by a significant portion of the mob quickly dropped in favor of the next predictable reaction to the crisis: outrage against those who allowed the collapse.

“I would say, since I’ve been doing this work, over 30 years ago, I’ve never been more concerned than I am right now,” Celente told ABC, Australia.


In Celente’s latest forecast, titled, The First Great War of the 21st Century—Prepare, Survive, Prevail, he paints a bleak picture for 2012, predicting a worsening of class warfare that already wages within more than a dozen countries, from Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, Syria, Bahrain and Qatar to the UK, Greece and Italy, which will eventually spread to eastern Europe/central Asia and more intensely in the United States.

But, what the world has seen so far is only a economic and social symptom of central bankers’ stop-gap remedies, haphazardly applied to the global financial crisis since its beginning in the U.S. and the fall of Bear Stearns in 2008.

After dozens of trillions of dollars thrown at a global solvency crisis with nothing but further deterioration to show for the money spent, some wonder if the world is about to slide still further into depression.

According to Celente, when the European Union falters from too much supply of debt coming due ($7.3 trillion from G-7 nations, see zerohedge.com) against the backdrop of sliding demand for more debt, the European domino will topple other dominoes, widening the global depression to include the world’s larger economies.

“If you live in Greece, you’re in a depression; if you live in Spain, you’re in a depression; if you live in Portugal or Ireland, you’re in a depression,” Celente said. “If you live in Lithuania, you’re running to the bank to get your money out of the bank as the bank runs go on. It’s a depression. Hungary, there’s a depression, and much of Eastern Europe, Romania, Bulgaria. And there are a lot of depressions going on [already].”

And as far as a Chinese riding in on a white horse to save the day, Celente said, it’s “highly unlikely. China has 1.3 billion people with a million problems . . . If the Europeans and Americans don’t buy a lot of crap, then the Chinese can make it and sell it to them.”

He continued to explain that China will then likely slow its imports of materials from countries which have been supplying mined product during the commodities boom, leading to a vicious spiral of increased unemployment and declining economic activity—a scenario strongly intimated by Dow Theory Letters author Richard Russell in his latest letter to investors (excerpts posted on King World News). Russell, too, expects a steepening U.S. depression, with 25 percent unemployment in the America as his target at the bottom of the depression.

“This whole thing is connected,” Celente explained. “China isn’t going to have the money to throw around to losers anymore than loan shark would give a gambler who can’t pay his old debts back and has a bad gambling habit another loan to gamble . . . They [Chinese] have their own problems to deal with.”

How bad will the next leg down in the world economy likely to be? Could Russell be right? Celente believes a comparison with the 1930s is a good one. He continued, “ . . . you can even listen to Christine Lagarde, the head of the International Monetary Fund, or I like to fondly call it, the International Mafia Federation—the loan sharks of last resort—even she’s saying what we’ve been saying now for three years about the parallels between the Crash of 1929, the Great Depression, currency wars, trade wars, world war.

“The Panic of ’08; you have the Great Recessions—Great Depressions going on. Oh, by the way, real estate prices in the United States, they’re at a steeper decline than they were during the Great Depression. Foreclosures continue to mount. It’s taking people over 40 weeks, who lose jobs to find another job, and then finding one at a fraction of what they lost the old one at.”

And as history demonstrates, when horrible economics overwhelm a society, political leaders search for a means of generating national jingoism to redirect the angry mob. That search for political safety usually turns to war.

“So then you look at the trade wars that they’re now talking about,” Celente said. “And, as I said, when you add them up, you have the beginnings of a great war going on already. Oh, and now, and now, they’re talking about, hey, we did such a great job in Iraq and Afghanistan, why don’t we bomb Iran? Have you heard the presidential candidates of the United States, with the exception of Ron Paul, that all want to go to war against Iran? So you can see where it’s going.

“You have psychopaths that have caused a lot of these problems that are giving the answers to how to solve them by adding more violence and criminality on top of old violence and criminality.”

Celente said the kickoff to a global meltdown and a call to war could “spiral out of control” some time “by the first quarter of 2012” as the European crisis worsens to the point of a crack up. “There’s no way to bail out the European nations,” Celente said forcefully.

And the build up to social unrest, calamity and possible civil war can be seen a mile away, said Celente, who segued into another one of the trends he sees for 2012: Safe Havens (escaping the United States).

“They just passed a law in the United states, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA),” he said. “It now gives the president the right to identify a person like me and call me a terrorist and that I’m against the government. And the military can come and break down my doors—the military—and arrest me, charge me with nothing, give me no trial, no rights of habeas corpus, no jury, no judge, and they can kill me if they so choose, torture me; they can send me to any country around the world.”

Celente advises preparing now for a quick route out of the United States if a bank holiday (a prediction of his) is called. The ramifications of a dollar devaluation aren’t clear, but an enacted NDAA, FEMA camp readiness and scheduled TSA checkpoint expansion plans suggest the U.S. may enter a crisis on par with the lead up to the U.S. Civil War of 1861-5.  Also see BER article, Gerald Celente Forecast 2012, FEMA Prepares for Dollar Collapse

WAS ALLOWING SENIORS WHO COULDN’T PAY THEIR PROPERTY TAXES TO WORK THEM OFF AT A LOW PAYING JOB. (SWEEPING THE STREETS ETC ETC…. THAT WILL BE TRIED 1ST… THROUGH OUT THE USA. CIA. FBI, NSA, ATF, PENTAGON, FEDERAL, STATE, COUNTY, CITY, MUNICIPALITIES ETG ETC. BY THE WAY “GOLDMAN SACK” IS THEIR “GOLDEN GOOSE” FOR THEIR PENSIONS, KIND OF EXPLAINS WHY NO ONE HAS BEEN ARRESTED IN INVESTMENTS COMPANIES… PENSION FUNDS…

    “They have sought to sell the ‘Zionism-means-all-Jewish-people’ lie so that they can condemn as ‘anti-Semites’ and ‘racists’ anyone who exposes the truth about Rothschild Zionism and its agents in government, banking, business, media, military etc.

    This is why most researchers won’t go there even if they are aware enough to know that they should go there. To uncover and expose what is happening in the world we need all the ‘bees’ – brain, backbone, balls – and never more so than now.”

    The Daily Reckoning has been talking about this stuff for over ten years. Back then some people knew what was coming, only the details were still sketchy. Now the collapse is in the final stages. It’s time to listen to Gerald Celente and others like him who have seen this coming for years.

    @jij: Celente was correct, the system did collapse in September 2008, that’s why Henry Paulson and GW Bush enacted the $700b TARP bailout program. Celente has said many times he didn’t know what “schemes” they would come up with to keep the system going, kicking that can further on down the road. Then there was QE1 and QE2. Now it’s gotten way out of hand, $15tr in debt and Europe also on the verge of collapsing. Celente and others are correct that this cannot go on for much longer. I still have the Stormwatch article from May 2008 that predicted a collapse the following September, and it happened, they just instituted the bailouts. There is not much more propping-up and bailing-out to do. We are at the end. Nobody knows exactly how or when it will end, but end it will (and soon).

    America will go to war with Iran… but this time, America will lose.

    With the help of Russia and China, Iran will see to it that America will be brought to its knees in one hour.

    The only way to survive is to get out of America. Bunkering up with food and supplies will not help. Investing in gold will not help.

    America is destined for destruction, and there is nothing you can do about it. Alternatively, if you think predestination reeks of religious/superstitious overtones, let’s just say that the time is just about ripe for America to reap what it has sown.

    It’s quite a shame actually. America is a young nation, and in less than three centuries it had brought plenty of innovation, learning, wealth and entertainment to the rest of the world. All good things must come to an end.

    Gerald Celente firmly points the finger at the money lenders in the temple as the culprits.

    He even quotes where the Prince of Peace rose in violence to drive them out of the temple.

    What Celente repeatedly refuses to do is name these people, as the Bible does. I therefore don’t trust Celente or his motives with all his crying wolf.

    Celente knows who the wolves are. He won’t name them for he knows their media will black ball him denying him his much loved media platforms to cry armageddon.

    Mel Gibson might have been a little drunk, but alcohol speaks the truth. Get some Bourbon in you Gerald and name names. We all know who the money lenders are. We all know………..

    @Falesteeni
    You are absolutely right. People who think that countries will allow Americans to come in and live like locals, are very much mistaken. Thanks to Bush, Clinton & Obama, we are loathed and reviled in most of the world. Their only safe havens (West Europe and Australia) will go down the sinkhole as well as Celente explains above.

    @allen heart
    allen, did you know that fedgov has been going door to door in some places to do “preparedmess assessments”? These agents want to know particularly about food stores and gardens. I know this has been happening in Tennessee, but I don’t know if it has happened anywhere else yet. In case you haven’t figured this out yet (and I’m not saying you haven’t), fedgov is NOT interested in your well being.

    @jij
    jij, if Celente were the only one saying this, I wouldn’t pay it much mind. But he’s one of MANY astute economic observers saying the same thing. Lew Rockwell, Peter Schiff, Ron Paul, and Jim Rogers are just a few that come immediately to mind. Where have you been?

    @Mike
    Mike, if you’ve got a way to combine guns with a get-away plan, I’d love to hear it. I’ve been researching this some and there is only one good place to get away to that honors an individual’s right to defense with firearms, and that’s Uruguay. But there’s a problem that the escapists are going to have to face: this problem is global. The Powers That Be aren’t going to stop with turning just the United States into a gulag. It’s not just Europe and North America that they seek to enslave; it’s the entire world. Escaping to Uruguay, or as others I’ve read about have to Argentina, Chile, and various Pacific islands, will only postpone the inevitable. Better to buy your bullets and beans and network with buddies here to fight back. If they’re not stopped in the united States of America, they won’t be stopped until the Second Coming of Christ.

    For those of us that don’t have money to buy gold… buy freeze dried and dehydrated food that can be stored for up to 25 years. My wife and I decided to take our entire tax return this year and spend it on food provisions. We will get a years supply of freeze dried food and hide it in our basement. Found a great deal at . Usually we would spend the tax return on furniture or vacation… not this year. Times have changed!

    Does anyone ever actually go back in the archives and compare this guys predictions to the outcomes? He was screaming “TOTAL COLLAPSE” back in 2008-9. Many are outright WRONG (recall gold over 2000 by Dec 2008???) 4 yrs later, and it aint there yet. His other ‘predictions’ were made loong after the trends had been obvious to everyone, or had even come to fruition. Please find another talking head. this whiner exasperates the hell out of viewers.
