Celente Warns Of 2012: Economy Will Crash, Banks Will Close, Chaos Will Ensue, Military Will Take Over

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Mac Slavo
December 16th, 2011

If you’ve followed trend forecaster Gerald Celente for any period of time you’ve probably realized he knows what he’s talking about. For the better part of two decades Celente and his Trends Journal have been forecasting political, financial, economic and social trends with an uncanny ability for accuracy.

In his latest interview Celente discusses a variety of different topics – from Iran and Europe to domestic militarization and the economy – and warns that our worst fears will soon be realized.

Bottom line? You ain’t seen nothin’ yet:

Gerald Celente on Jeff Rense Radio:

This passed (National Defense Authorization Act) the Senate by 93-7. I’m mentioning this because all the pieces are in place now.

The economy is going to crash. There is going to be chaos. Economic martial law will be called. Banks will close. And, chaos will ensure.

The law is now in place for the military to come in and take over. Fascism has come to America.

And if anyone thinks that I’m over blowing this, you may recall, for those of you who have been listening to Jeff Rense for the years that I’ve been on, that when Obama got elected I said there was a high probability, in 2009, of a bank holiday because of the disastrous economic conditions.

I came across a video that’s on Youtube… June of 2009… Corzine is running for re-election for Governor of New Jersey… and there’s Joe Biden… he’s campaigning for Corzine… He’s telling the audience, you know, ‘the day that we were sworn into office, the top of our agenda, the top of our list, was whether or not to call a bank holiday.’

…The point that I want to make is, and I want to drive this home, it should be headline news – the Obama administration was prepared to call a bank holiday in 2009. Economic conditions are much worse now.


In an interview with Lew Rockwell on November 30, Celente provided a timeline for events, suggesting that things may start heating up as soon as the first quarter of 2012.

      Jeez last year he was predicting the same thing for this christmas. He predicted by Nov 2011 all the same stuff was suppose to happen… well guess what it didnt happen like he said. He just says all this to spread panic so all his investments will go up. he is invested heavily in gold and such so he wants a u.s. collapse. Its all BS spread about so he will make money or hope to that is.

      Oh hard-necked and stiff-necked generation! A generation of vipers! Mockers, slanderers, backbiters, accusers, rapists, sodomites, perverts, liars, murderers, and thieves of every description! Undisciplined and unruly! Fit for destruction! Full of every deception! Oh, my whip shall fall hard on you! And, of a sudden, I shall rip the rug form beneath your feet! Of a sudden, I shall take away all that you cherish and hold dear! Of a sudden, I shall break you like a twig in the wind! Of a sudden, I shall destroy your families, destroy your houses, destroy your careers, and take away your easy lives! Of a sudden, I shall lay waste to your cities, to your coastlines, to your high-minded governments, and to you panderers and peddlers of falsehoods and lies! In one instant, I shall deal such a blow to My own house and such a blow to Satan’s Kingdom, that indeed, the New World Order will go forth on wobbly knees!

      Oh, yes! This is so; and this is at hand! For, when I take My bride, I shall throw the world in such turmoil, that overnight, there shall come about massive starvation! Overnight, millions upon millions will perish in the churning waters! Overnight, millions upon millions will be buried beneath the crumbling rocks of earthquakes that are so great, that your instruments have never measured such things! Oh, yes, overnight millions upon millions without electrical power! Millions upon millions without food! Millions upon millions dead! Banks closing and no money to be had! Wars, terrible wars quickly thereafter breaking out all over the world, as Satan’s own try for world domination! Terrible torture, persecution, and killing of many Christians! Mind control re-education camps in your midst and the new world order mind control teams working feverishly to take over the minds of the weak Christians and to use them for their own! Massive killing camps, which far exceed anything Hitler ever had, as far as their grotesque horrors! A war against the so-called Christians, such as never before, with any and all methodologies used against them to cause them to denounce Me and My Son!

      Trials by the fire! Oh, great and terrible trails by the fires of persecution, starvation, wars, and deprivations of every kind! Harsh! Severe! Nuclear destruction! Poisoned food! Harsh! Severe! Oh, the weeping! Oh, the wailing, as all that all hold dear in this world, evaporates before their very eyes!

      Celente the other day let it slip indirectly how much money he lost at MF Global. A little math was required, but he lost $600,000.

      And yea I find it really odd a man who calls out the “White Shoe Shine Boys” is secretly doing business with them. A major hit to his credibility. Saying that though he does have a high hit rate with his predictions, pity he didn’t see MF Global coming.

    • Anonymous

      It’s like he wants the end to come. He’s almost wishing for it. Listen, then end has been predicted since the beginning of time. There are and always will be “signs”. The only difference now is that the internet allows stuff like this to be posted and people who don’t know any better believe it. Then is spreads like wildfire and all of a sudden 9/11 was an inside job, obama is a reptile, bin laden was a robot planted CIA agent, the world is going to end in 2012. Maybe it will, maybe it won’t. But the truth is nobody knows, not even you. And you never will know and that scares you which is why you post this crap to feel better about yourself.

      this has been all pre planed , Celente was right this all should have colaped last year. But the PTB have kept minipulating the gold markets and provideding bailouts. greece should have colapsted because in reality there was no money to bail them out or do anything else it has become nothing more than a game of monopoly were the banker just starts makeing notes in the account books saying this country has this or that but its pure B.S they just have to keep it going till may of 2012.

      @Mark Brander-Have you been on a bad acid trip for years or what is wrong with you. Human nature is human nature and what you wrote includes EVERYONE, including your santified self!
      It sounds like to me you are in dire need of assistance!

      If you listened to his interviews – you would have known that the company he originally had his money with was not owned by MF Global – but he didn’t find it out till they called him up and told him that he didn’t have enough money in his segregated checking account to take possession of his gold this December.

      Keep on blowing hot air, and when it comes to pass – Celente will have the last laugh :)

      I have one comment to this. ITS OUR CHOICE. Who said we have to let these people make our decisions? Oh thats right, they did. Convenient. Instead of worrying about banks failing start managing your own money and developing alternative Energy Exchanges. We have been working on and with models for over a year. We have a Think Tank and Internationally recognized time bank. The only equal exchange is time. Think about your future in a new light. What can i do?

      I downloaded a new book from titled: ZTINGAR. Apart from being one of the most informative books I’ve ever read in matters to do with life, why we’re here, where we came from and to where we’re probably heading, UFOs, NDEs, 2012 etc. It also contains an extraordinary, inarguable and logical explanation to what people call God, which is nothing like the church teaches and very different to what one would expect. I strongly recommend it…

      instead of downloading lies why dont you read the Bible its all true and is happening,wether you believe it or not.every knee shall bow!

    • chris from oz

      How does a knee bow?

      Try reading something more than a dusty 2000 year old propaganda manual before you ridicule anyone peacefully offering alternative information you Jesus luvin muppet…

      Are all these anonymous posts from the same person?

      Why is Gerald Celente getting interviews on practically every mainstream media network, like an honored guest, when guys like Ron Paul are shunned when he tells the truth about financial corruption. Ron Paul proposes real solutions, Celente is a huge shill for the fear mongers.

      I’d LOVE to see the deposits slips for Celente’s bank accounts to see whose payroll he’s on..

      He stinks like a slimy fish laying in the sun..

    • Anonymous

      I’ll bet he’s being paid indirectly by the IMF.. That new French woman heading the IMF last week was calling for a “global solution”… you know what THAT means… common currency, common banking system, common control of finances.. and global fiat currency coming from the same printing press..

    • AEONPI

      JUST True people getting together doing really things that make a real difference. When we stop playing into the games that have been played on us, we can start to create our own games with our own rules. It is really a matter of Do you want to live in Fear another day or do you want to step and empower yourself. How many headlines do you read every day that DIVERT YOUR emotions?
