> > Americas going to go through a transition the likes of which no one is prepared for, said Celente, noting that peoples 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 per cent.
> > 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 worlds 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. Its not going to come yet, but its going to come down the line and were 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. Thats going to be the big one because people cant afford to pay more school tax, property tax, any kind of tax. Youre going to start seeing those kinds of protests start to develop.
> > Its 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 were going to see many more.
> > Were going to start seeing huge areas of vacant real estate and squatters living in them as well. Its going to be a picture the likes of which Americans are not going to be used to. Its going to come as a shock and with it, theres 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, peoples minds werent 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 anybodys comprehension.

The price of not heeding his warnings could be far greater than the cost of preparing for the future now.
Storable food and gold are two good places to make a start.
Well, he got that part right.
Always remember.........God is still in charge. Take hope.
This has already been posted a week or more ago.
I think he’s probably right about the tax revolts and the squatters rebellion, at least.
Better yet, eat what you are storing and keeping cycling food into your storage, FIFO. You don't have to be concerned about a revolution to have a reason to have some basic preps. Lots of other stuff like natural disasters, storms, terror attacks, etc. are also good reasons.
I’ve heard mixed responses on purchasing MREs. What say you? Honestly, I didn’t think they were half bad.
I wouldn’t be a bit surprised.
This Nation was founded in a tax revolt, and it will fall in one.
I am already stocking food and ammo.
It will definitely get worse before it gets better.
The prob with MRE’s is the overall shelf life and the fact that most wouldn’t eat them w/o an overwhelming need to.
Buy regular foor with long shelf-lives, and rotate them.
Having said that, a case or two of MRE’s is not a bad idea.
I’ve found a few sites selling them. They say 5-10 year shelf life depending on the temp the meals are stored at. I can provide the links if you like.
> The man who predicted the 1987 stock market crash...
Any one knows if this guy has been predicting stock market crashes every year and finally got lucky in 1987?
What would be the reason for revolts/civil war? By 2012, we would already have an election in 2010. If things will get as bad as this guy appears to be predicting, why would we not have a change in control of Congress in 2010?
BTW, what are the odds of a Republican Senator from Illinois?
> If Nostradamus were alive today, hed have a hard time keeping up with Gerald Celente. > New York Post
I am not terribly impressed with Nostradamus either.
only Ron Paul will get us the revolution. None of the other candidates hold a candle to him
Storable food and gold are two good places to make a start.
why Gold? If you were trapped on an island (think Tom Hanks in Castaway) then a pocket knife or a pack of matches is more valuable than a truck of gold bricks.
gold doesnt help hikers trapped on mountains or lost in the woods etc.....
What does he have to say about certain states seceding?
We prefer “Trust God - but keep your powder dry.”
Ok, let’s all commit hari-kari.
Thanks for all the advice.
