    Celente Forecasts Winter of Discontent; October Will Be Month of the Big Unraveling

    Leading trend forecaster Gerald Celente, of the Trends Research Institute, discusses a host of issues and topics with Infowars Nightly News host Alex Jones. Among other things, Celente says he’s never seen a summer like 2011, and warns that this Winter will not be a good one for Americans:

    Gerald Celente On Collapse and Depression:

    When is it going to collapse? As I’ve said, I’ve never seen a summer like this. I think we’re going to see the Winter of Discontent… You’re going to start seeing an unraveling more and more every day as you watch the news. So, October is my month, and it’s only a guesstimate, that we’re going to see the big unraveling.

    Even if it doesn’t happen in October, because you don’t know what phony schemes they’re going to come up with, it’s going to happen eventually. And, that’s why I’m fully invested in gold.

    Look at housing. How many times did they say the real estate market is turning around. It’s worse. It’s worse than it was during the Great Depression, and it’s only going to get worse.

    We’re seeing a collapse happening. It’s an economic collapse worldwide.

    China’s not going to make it out of it, Brazil’s not going to. That old saying ‘when America sneezes the world catches a cold’ – we’re the largest consumers hands down. Us and Europe are going under.

    What we’re telling people is, know where you’re money is, because we’re going to see bank failures one after another.

    On Civil Unrest:

    Look what’s going on in the UK. Look at the riots – they called them hooligans and criminals. It’s the same thing that’s happening around the world. And it’s going to happen here in the U.S.

    You know my saying, ‘when people lose everything, and they have nothing left to lose, they lose.’ And they’re losing it.

    Use the UK as your model. They’re taking away all civil liberties.

    What happens is, the more the government loses control, the harder they are going to crack down on us.

    So, when you see a society where so many young people have no educations, they can’t get jobs, they’re wacked out on drugs… you think you’re going to see a lot more violence?

    …The response is going to be ‘we gotta crack down on crime.’ The worse crime becomes, the harder they’re going to crack down on us.

    They’ll use it…  just as the United States used 9/11 to rape us of our Constitutional rights.

    On Fear and Hysteria:

    Look for a false flag attack – be it terror, or something along the line of fear and hysteria. Things are going to get very ugly. Crime is going to escalate at levels we’ve never seen before. The presstitutes are going to keep coming out with these phony figures, just like they do with inflation, just like they do with unemployment. They’re going to come out with them in crime.

    On SHTF Planning:

    You better learn how to protect yourself. Gerald Celente’s three G’s. Gold, Guns and a Getaway Plan. Because it’s not going to be nice.

        You’re right Tom. Many things that we see the last years are beyond our reach and influence.
        We understand what’s happening and we will be affected more or less. But we cannot always change the path.
        What i’m going to do is to protect my family, keep them safe, find some food, and keep my Christian faith burning.
        I will do this even if i have to become a beast.

        Be safe Tom. Protect your beloved ones.

          Tom, you’re ridiculous. What Christian faith do you claim to follow that allows you to “become a beast” if needed? What happened to turn the other cheek and responding with kindness. Fear not who may kill the body, but he who may destroy your soul. Sounds like you’ve already chosen to forego your soul to preserve your body.

          Be peaceful as doves, but astute as serpents the Lord said.

            Doug, I believe we have the right to defend ourselves and our family if the need arises. I am not saying to not have charity with others, but if they come to steal from me and rape my wife and children, I will respond in kind. The teachings of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ are full of kindness and gentleness, but God allowed his people to defend themselves if the need was there. I will stay in my home, not look for trouble, and run if the opportunity arises. However, I will not allow the evil ones to hurt my loved ones.

            In the end, we will all have to decide whatever level of mercy we choose to dole out. Anyone with preps is going to find it more and more difficult to share with total strangers who did nothing but watch tv and wait for the government to give them an entitlement, which is 98% of the population.
            I intend to share with my neighbors, as it is in my best interest. But other than that, the stupid sheeple are on their own. I can hear them bleep now. Bah, bah, bah. Where’s my handout? it’s in that line headed into the FEMA camp.

          OKAY GUYS AND GALS, I NEED HELP. Here we are talking about the coming Hell fire hoards, and if and how we can use force and still be allowed to wear our peace is my motto and Jesus still loves me pins… But we all know it is coming and we will have these decisions to make, God willing we will have the option to make tactical decisions… Now picture you and your trusted few out there making it. And picture me and mine 3/4 of a mile our about a kilometer to your West. Maybe, right? You don’t know my hometown and I don’t know yours. On our patrols, we learn about some intel that means we can acquire needed supplies our personnel… We just have to travel a few miles. On that mission, Tom and Jim cross paths with Sheepdog and company. We aren’t wearing Patrick Henry hats or flying Gadsden flags. But we would not want to fight. HOW DO WE NOT KILL EACH OTHER? Sounds like a stupid question, but give it thought… Ideas?

            I am not sure how that will play out. I mean, have we been in so many conflicts and gun fights that we are edgy and panicked and ready to shoot someone on sight. I pray that it doesnt come to that. I pray that my morals and beliefs hold up if it does come to an end. I really cant answer that. Christian means Christ Like, we are trying to immitate Christ in our lives. However, we are still broken sinners who fail all the time. I dont know I will do, that is my honest answer. I just pray God gives me the strength to live my life in a manner pleasing to Him.

            some communication will get around. I live in an urban area, but yet there are farms around. people do know each other to a certain extent. I know the people around me to a certain extent. I would be comfortable communicating with them to form armed roadblocks to keep the rif raff out. it’s hard to figure it all out till it happens. but, around here, pretty much everyone is armed. I already know that for a fact. makes me sleep better at night.

        I think it’s in God’s hands to begin with. Everything else is icing on the cake. The Key is to make sure one is thankful for those “hands” on a moment to moment basis, no matter what one’s religious affiliation is or is not. To act in accord with God’s Laws, whatever that means to the doer of those deeds, as long as others are inspired and uplifted by those acts, e.g. as one sows so shall one reap. What we put out comes back (ten fold).

        God helps those who help themselves (and others).

        Tom, I too am tired of worrying and waiting for the hammer to fall. I have seen a number of Mr. Celente’s doom predictions pass without incident. He has howeverbeen alarmingly accurate with several 2008 financial predictions. I think (hope and pray as well) that October 2011 will come and go without a major event. The sad part is with this type of prognastication, you only need to be right once. “They” still have a few tricks left to postpone the inevitable. About 15-18 months I think.

          I have found myself thinking that things would progress much faster than they have. But sooner or later the things that we speak of will happen. the longer it holds off, the better prepped we can be. I do feel we are running out of time rather quickly though. The elites have many tricks they can pull. But in the end, you can only depend on the preps you make to get you through. What else do we have?

    2. Last weekend I was drinking a few beers with some
      fairly new ‘acquaintances’. When the subject of
      SHTF came up, one of them said, “Just hit someplace with
      a lot of canned goods, first.” What he meant was,
      attack a store (or prepper?) for their food in order to
      survive.
      This mentality is prevalent amongst a considerable
      amount of today’s ‘citizens’. These people, although
      Americans and considered ‘cool’ by their friends, have
      somewhat lower IQ’s and basically feel it’s ok to steal
      their way through an emergency situation. Got GUNS?

        The next time it comes up you should ask them if they’re okay with stealing food from other people who have had the foresight to stock up. If they say yes, ask them if they realize that anybody with the foresight to store food is likely to store weapons and ammo too. If they say yes to that, and act like they are unconcerned then hit them with the whammy. After they kill the parents who they are taking the food from, are they going to shoot the children outright or let them starve to death? If this doesn’t bother them, walk away and don’t go back. These are not people you want to know where you live.

            I know. My thought is maybe they are good people who just haven’t thought things through to their conclusion. That seems to be a common failing, just look at the type of people we tend to elect.

            That’s why you give them a chance to think beyond their comfort zone. If they get uneasy when they go there, you might be able to nudge them in the right direction. If they aren’t uneasy…they are people who you want to stay far away from, regardless of the situation.

          I suspect that most of them are just talking sheiite, and would be easily discouraged if they tried to carry out this activity.

          It is easy to think/say these things when you don’t have to actually make the very perilous effort. That said, it shows that these people are totally unprepared for any emergency and would expect/demand that SOMEBODY save them because they are SPECIAL (at least two generations have been told this for their entire lives).

        “Do not contend with a man without cause if he has done you no harm” Proverbs 3:30

          I agree Wild Goose. Also, people should not blab their preps to anyone, not even close friends. Bartering is fine with like minded friends. Others living near you and strangers will use a gun if they want stuff from a store or anyone else. J, you’re right, the slackers are everywhere and they will become gangs or beggars later on. One lady gave up on prepping after her husband died, she said she would move in with her daughter. Families if they agree, need to think about living with relatives for financial and safety reasons.

          This reminds me of a school my children once attended. I’m a single mother of two children and have always been a very hard worker. Sometimes, because of this, I’m not able to be there for every single event.

          One day my daughter, in grade two at the time, came home very excited. “Mommy, Mommy! Did you know that you can quit your job and still get money? Alex’s mommy gets paid and gets a free house and everything!Money just comes to you once a month!”

          Needless to say, we switched schools as soon as possible.

            Over in Cincinnati, there are “magnet” public schools (aka decent) and every year new spots are awarded on a first-come first-served basis (really stupid idea). Parents who work are at a disadvantage because most cannot camp out in line for days like the leeches can. People have been complaining about this process for years, but as far as I know it is still done this way.

          I expect every cop with a family to disappear from the streets, with their guns and other gear. I also expect the remaining cops to stand around just long enough to start thinking “I am here to die for WHAT?” before they also leave, also with their guns and gear. So whatever police force they manage to scrape together will be under-equipped, all but untrained, and far too few to make a difference.

            any police who do remain after the family men and the duty-dodgers you described have left will probably be more inclined to protect the wealthy first, take bribes, abuse their authority and confiscate your property…

            They will be replaced however by federal police or federally-funded mercenary-types like in New Orleans after Katrina. The abuses these guys wrought on the general public…summary arrest and beatings…homicide…gun confiscations….property confiscation….forced pet abandonment etc. will not soon be forgotten.

            I’d rather face hungry looters and unprepared neighbors than brownshirt-types from the other side of the country with a federal paycheck in their pocket.

            If it gets really tough most officers who can retire will. Many honest officers with families will quit due to increased danger and irratic pay. Most areas will be hard pressed to replace them. The result will be uneven at first.

            Some areas might augment their force with local “volunteers” “auxiliaries” or militia. This could work well in some places if the volunteers are wealthy (ie. don’t need pay) and competent training officers are available. Otherwise it could lead to repression and targeting of outsiders.

            Some areas might be assigned federal troops to “help” with policing, with uncertian results.

            Some areas might totally lack police and others may be only sporadically patrolled by State Police, county deputies or National Guard.

            In the worst case, where funds are lacking, and other help is not available, some officers might go rogue, with, or without resignation. Both fake and some former cops might prey on citizens. It would be difficult to distinguish them from “highwaymen with badges” still on the force, after several months of little or no pay. The few honest cops remaining would be in danger from all sides. Think Mexico on steroids.

      You might want to bury one of your rifles, a set of web gear and some ammo as well just in case the USG uses the next few months’ craziness to attempt a weapons confiscation.

          It’s my opinion that the SHTF scenario that everyone here worries about is going to come about due to a nuclear attack or a solar storm or volcanic/earthquake activity NOT by an economic collapse that we’re seeing materalize before our eyes.

      IMHO “GOD” has nothing to do with any of this or anything for that matter. We have very little to do with whatever fate awaits us. Only a few of those who profess to b “prepared” will actually have any impact on what happens to them and there will be an element of luck that may be the difference between living and dying. It’s that simple. I understand many people believe “GOD” is watching over us and will ultimately “decide” how this will all end. Some quote scriptures that can be applied to current events or to the current human experience as if that is proof of “GODS” existence. The reason scriptures written thousands of years ago can be applied current events is because the human species hasnt really evolved much from the time the scriptures were written and they were written by men, for mankind ABOUT mankind. The world of shit were in now is the result of years of deceptive and corrupt practices by greedy power hungry men who have taken advantage of an undereducated largely ignorant populace. It wasn’t “GOD’S” doing so why would “GOD” be expected to intervene this late in the game when “HE” could’ve prevented the whole problem from occurring in the first place? I’m sorry but I get sick of hearing otherwise rational sounding people who are sharing what they know about a SHTF plan but then destroy their credibility by deferring the ultimate outcome to something that doesn’t have any more validity than the tooth fairy or Santa Claus. I guess I wish people would stick w talking about what this site is focused on and what we all can (or most of us) agree is reality. Which is how we can stay alive when the SHTF and help others do the same.I apologize if I’ve offended anyone. Youre entitled to your opinion and have the freedom to express it. I just dont think this is the appropriate forum for sharing it. So, if I havent just turned everyone against me I have a question related to what happens to the prison population in times of social and economic collapse? My little brother is going to be in DOC for the next 96 yrs (he’s 42 yrs old and has been wrongly accused and railroaded into lifelong incarceration by by a corrupt judicial system). Is it life as normal inside when it’s total chaos outside? If Fed govt is broke and can’t keep the lights on or pay private corrections what happens to inmates? Spare me the “Who cares?” type of responses pls.

        Don’t know anything about your brother, but I am REALLY sorry for him if he is truly wrongly imprisoned. He would be far from the first.

        Seems our “justice” system finds some excuse for every career criminal, but likes to come down hard on good people at every opportunity (anyone who defends their life with a firearm comes to mind).

        We should all care what happens to prisoners in a crisis because either many, many predators would be unleashed on the rest of us when we could least cope with it, or, a relative handful of people could decide to upgrade sentences to death, even for minor infractions.

        There’s a slight condescending flavor to your post and I’m wonder why you criticize those who choose to add to their preparedness portfolio a valuable tool/asset such as establishing an alliance with THAT which governs all of creation? Seems like the prefect way to “do less and accomplish more”. In fact, if I was in your position, I’d be looking for all the “subtle” help I could muster up rather than complain and blame your so called “GOD” as the source of your troubles. If you want to help get your brother out of the dark, turn on the light. Maybe you need to re-establish your connection with THAT which governs ALL the Laws of Nature and tap into THAT so you automatically, naturally and spontaneously have support of those Laws of the Universe. Sounds like maybe you feel “abandoned” but that was your choice. No one is ever abandoned if they are open to Consciousness, the field of all possibilities. It’s through Consciousness, the all pervading transmission wires of the nervous system that connect one with the Unified Field, where ALL answers to ones questions reside.

        Why not link up with THAT which can guide one through the turmoil of life? Especially if that THAT has the Universal road map ready to download.

        If one finds oneself chronically complaining about others, blaming others or demanding from others, look to the Ego and small self. One’s got to learn to contain those “demons” before one has any hope of deserving access to The Great Cosmic GPS system for navigating through life with the maximum support for one’s actions.

          Certainly not A God of creation, as proved time and time again via archeology, bibliology, psychology, and mathematics.

          What God is, (if there is one) no one really knows, show some humility for once in your life and admit that the Bible is NOT the word of God, that two babies is enough, and “it” the Bible, is the word of manipulation set forth by man, not of diviness.

Gasoline bearing alcohol doesn’t keep well and tends to invite much more corrosion on the system. Though, it really doesn’t matter. I rotate out the gasoline ever 6 months anyways.

          I don’t see where Gary North defends Keynesians. He only says they’re not completely brain dead, “There are too many economists, even Keynesians, who know that price ceilings create shortages.”

          And again, no, we didn’t hear it first from the bankers friend DK, many People said so.

          Also, consider this perspective:

          Putting the Hyper-Inflation Cart Before the Accelerating Price-Inflation Horse

          “…No one knows how this will play out…” [Not DK, not me, not Gary North, nobody.]

          “… every central banker that now hugs dollars could choose to ditch those dollars. It is likely that not even hell has a downward swirling slide comparable to the slide that the dollar will take, if the worlds bankers decide to shun the dollar. Such a shipping of dollars back to our shores could in itself cause a hyper-inflation that would be very hard for even a skilled Federal Reserve chairman to handle (and I don’t think Bernanke is so skilled).

          … Long term there are too many unknowns to be in any camp, especially when you have a machine known as the Fed that can shoot out billions trillions of dollars whenever it chooses and the size of the manipulated part of the economy gets bigger and bigger. I just watch what the Fed is doing and adjust accordingly on a roughly six month basis. The constant adjustments are no way to live, but are necessary because of the fact that we do have a central bank, the Federal Reserve, that manipulates up and down the money supply. Right now, because of the new money accelerated growth that is occurring, I anticipate that the climb in price inflation is going to escalate dramatically, where this spike in price inflation will stop, I have no idea. I just take it six months at a time.”

          http://www.economicpolicyjournal.com/2011/09/putting-hyper-inflation-cart-before.html

          And finally, don’t act all smug and smiley faced DK, you helped steer many People into financially disastrous real estate transactions, that’s nothing to boast about or be proud of and hardly a position to look down upon others and proclaim one’s self Master of the Universe as do your friends in banking et al.

          Don’t forget DK, you said, inflation was nothing, there are many People who strongly disagree with your proclamation and might even call you sick and twisted for saying so.

            Inflation is nothing Clark if you have real assets that increase in value; which is why I have encouraged people to buy gold if they can, and if they can’t, buy silver until they can use it to buy gold.

            I haven’t steered anyone into anything but precious metals. Yes, I believe there are good opportunities out there in real estate and have identified three of my own: two industrial parcels (both rail served) and the bank branch I have always wanted. Now I need to liquidate some assets to buy them.

            I haven’t steered anyone into real estate, but in my past life as a REALTY WHORE I serviced the people that came to me for my skills. Still there are opportunities out there now for those with the cash to buy.

            Clark, people must adapt, change, evolve to the changing circumstances in which they find themselves. It has always been that way. Today is nothing new, only different.

            If you are only discovering that now, it is because you are so young and foolish. Life can be stressful I will admit, but the man that masters patience masters all things.

            If I am smug {yes I am:-)} Its because you have deserved it. If you were a man you would admit your mistakes (if only to yourself) and think before you open your mouth again at me, or anyone else, until you know what you are talking about.

            Please go back to school, if only part time, as you can afford it. I did it on my own. You have family for some support. A college grad makes on average of two million dollars a year more than a high school grad; and that disparity will widen. Money isn’y everything but it is better than the alternative. Use the time of your youth to best advantage: get a formal education.

            “Many claim that a college degree is worth a million dollars, but like so many other “facts” about higher education in the United States, it is not quite right. Indeed, using a set of reasonable assumptions that factors in school selectivity, the cost of a college education, and foregone wages, I show that the million dollar figure is grossly inflated, and may be three times too high.”

            Wiki Answers says, In the U.S., “of those 25 years of age and over in 2000, Only 33% had a college degree.”

            Where do you pull your 80% figure from?
            Is there a rabbit there too?

            Wikipedia says, “…Overall the average American, age 25 or older, made roughly $32,000 per year,[5] does not have a college degree,… lives in his or her own home in a suburban setting, and holds a white-collar office job…

            The professional/managerial fields were the only two occupational fields where college graduates with a Bachelor’s degree or higher represented the majority…

            professional occupations… 68.2%
            Business and managerial occupations… 53.4%”

            That does Not look like 80% to me.

      I never know what to expect as long as the Fed and politicos keep pulling the occasional rabbit out of their hats when they suspect the need arises. Three years ago I told my family that they (the gov/goons) would print, print, print. Today, I believe it will be more of the same for several years down the road — unless the situation gets so out-of-control that they (gov/goons) cannot even pretend to manage… and that their actions just become laughable to the general populace. People “are” waking up finally. Some are preparing. Most still not thinking about that yet. It will probably be too late when most people decide to make preps. That is my fear. That (the fact of their being too late) will be very problematic for the few who have made preps.

      The situation in Greece and with its debt is interesting as it shows us just how far the bankers/gov/goons are willing to go to prop up that mess and so, prop up our mess and everyone else’s mess. Everybody knows they are broke. Everybody knows they can’t pay. Ever. Under any circumstances. So, if they (gov/goons) pull another rabbit out of the hat for the sake of “keeping” on keeping on — let’s just say that that will prove they they still have a few rabbits and they’ll keep on pulling em out until the hat wears out.

      Today, couldn’t get in, standing room only so thinking it was a fluke, went to eat and toured the city for a while; returned to even a more full room; had to leave my order and will return Wednesday.
      They know what’s coming…they don’t like the prices at the grocery either.

      Christians As well as anyone else who receives this mark will be cast into the lake of fire.
      My brothers in Christ, our faith is about to be tested.
      Rely on our God!
      Draw close to Him!

      ” He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16-17

      “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” Revelation 14:9-11

        But, really, I think most posters here are Christian. If you want to reach the lost you should go down to the street corner where you live and start your rant to save the hookers, pimps, and drug dealers.

            “As a communist I don’t believe in heaven or the Bible but as a scientist I now believe in hell,” said Dr. Azzacove. “Needless to say we were shocked to make such a discovery. But we know what we saw and we know what we heard. And we are absolutely convinced that we drilled through the gates of hell!”

            Dr. Azzacove continued, “. . .the drill suddenly began to rotate wildly, indicating that we had reached a large empty pocket or cavern. Temperature sensors showed a dramatic increase in heat to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit.”

            “We lowered a microphone, designed to detect the sounds of plate movements down the shaft. But instead of plate movements we heard a human voice screaming in pain! At first we thought the sound was coming from our own equipment.”

            “But when we made adjustments our worst suspicions were confirmed. The screams weren’t those of a single human, they were the screams of millions of humans!”

      Since hell has been mentioned, I found something today very interesting.
      http://www.av1611.org/hell.html
      Snippet;
      We’re going to examine the place the Bible calls hell. We’ll present documented evidence for a place called hell. Don’t take what you’re going to read lightly. If what you read is true — YOU COULD BE IN SERIOUS DANGER!

      Several years ago a book was published, entitled Beyond Death’s Door by Dr. Maurice Rawlings. Dr. Rawlings, a specialist in Internal Medicine and Cardiovascular Disease, resuscitated many people who had been clinically dead. Dr. Rawlings, a devout atheist, “considered all religion “hocus-pocus” and death nothing more than a painless extinction”. But something happened in 1977 that brought a dramatic change in the life of Dr. Rawlings! He was resuscitating a man, terrified and screaming — descending down into the flames of hell:
      “Each time he regained heartbeat and respiration, the patient screamed, “I am in hell!” He was terrified and pleaded with me to help him. I was scared to death. . . Then I noticed a genuinely alarmed look on his face. He had a terrified look worse than the expression seen in death! This patient had a grotesque grimace expressing sheer horror! His pupils were dilated, and he was perspiring and trembling — he looked as if his hair was “on end.”
      Then still another strange thing happened. He said,”Don’t you understand? I am in hell. . . Don’t let me go back to hell!” . . .the man was serious, and it finally occurred to me that he was indeed in trouble. He was in a panic like I had never seen before.”
      (Maurice Rawlings, Beyond Death’s Door,(Thomas Nelson Inc., 1979) p. 3).
      Dr. Rawlings said, no one, who could have heard his screams and saw the look of terror on his face could doubt for a single minute that he was actually in a place called hell!

      The Bible continually warns of a place called hell. There are over 162 references in the New Testament alone which warns of hell. And over 70 of these references were uttered by the Lord Jesus Christ!

      Snippet;

      Scientist and Bible teacher, Henry Morris also agrees the Bible plainly teaches that hell is in this earth:

      “So far as we can tell from Scripture, the present hell, is somewhere in the heart of the earth itself. It is also called ‘the pit’ (Isa. 14:9, 15: Ezek. 32:18-21) and ‘the abyss’ (Rev. 9:2). . .
      The writers certainly themselves believed hell to be real and geographically ‘beneath’ the earth’s surface. . .

      Snippet;
      Caspar Peucer, a famous fourteenth century astronomer and physician, who also researched and documented the volcanoe eruptions at Heklafell wrote some very frightening information in his research findings. Peucer, claims (as others) that “fearful howlings, weeping and gnashing of teeth” could be heard “for many miles. . .” as these volcanoes erupted:

      “Out of the bottomless abyss of Heklafell, or rather out of Hell itself, rise melancholy cries and loud wailings, so that these can be heard for many miles around. . . there may be heard in the mountain fearful howlings, weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
      (Haraldur Sigurdsson, Melting the Earth, The History of Ideas on Volcanic Eruptions, p. 73)
      And Caspar Peucer is not alone. There are others who believe they have heard “cries and screaming” coming from volcanoes. Most have tried to ignore the obvious. Some simply explain the “sounds of hell” to some rational meaning. But they are there. . .
      “The fearsome noises that issued from some of their volcanoes were certainly thought to be the screams of tormented souls in the fires of hell below”.
      (Haraldur Sigurdsson, Melting the Earth, The History of Ideas on Volcanic Eruptions, p. 73)
      Inside this earth, this very moment, there are millions of lost, tormented souls — burning, weeping, wailing — without any hope whatsoever!

      In Mark 9:46, Jesus Christ says about hell: “Where THEIR WORM dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.”

      Jesus said explicitly — THEIR worm — not a worm, or the worm — but THEIR worm. The Bible teaches that Christians will one day have a body like the Lord Jesus Christ. Could it be, as some Bible students teach — that men and women in hell take on the form of their father, Satan (John 8:44)? In Revelation 12:3, Satan is described as a red dragon. Could Jesus Christ be referring to the body lost men and women will have for eternity?

      The earth’s crust on land is normally 50 miles thick. You’d have to go down 50 miles before the edge of the fire. But in parts of the ocean floor, the earth’s crust is less than a mile thick.

      Scientists recently discovered cracks on the ocean floor where fire was leaking out. Do you know what they found around these fire-breathing vents in the crust? Eight-foot long worms, found no other place in the world! The book, The Deep Sea, by Joseph Wallace (p.39), reads, “Perhaps the strangest of ocean creatures recently discovered are Riftia, the giant tube WORMS. Measuring up to 8 feet in length, the worms are ONLY FOUND NEAR DEEP SEA VENTS.”

      @European American:

      I appreciate you taking the time to read and respond to my post. I think you might need to reread it though because you must’ve misinterpreted what I said and why I said it and/or you’ve said things that either don’t make sense nor contribute anything of value relative to the subject material of this website. You also didn’t answer the question I posed.

      You wrote:

      “why you criticize those who choose to add to their preparedness portfolio a valuable tool/asset such as establishing an alliance with THAT which governs all of creation?”

      Professing one’s belief in a particular faith on a site like this is a waste of time for site visitors whose beliefs don’t happen to align with yours who are looking for tangible information which can be utilized by everyone regardless of faith.

      Speaking of “having a condescending tone” I would never claim something as arrogant as knowing “THAT which governs all of creation?” as you apparently do.

      You said:

      “if I was in your position, I’d be looking for all the “subtle” help I could muster up rather than complain and blame your so called “GOD” as the source of your troubles.”

      No shit I’m looking for help. That’s why I check this site daily and posted a question! I wasn’t complaining and blaming “my god”. I don’t claim to have a god. What I have is respect for the universe from which we evolved and for life itself. I was suggesting people refrain from posting their religious beliefs.

      You said:

      “If you want to help get your brother out of the dark, turn on the light. Maybe you need to re-establish your connection with THAT which governs ALL the Laws of Nature and tap into THAT so you automatically, naturally and spontaneously have support of those Laws of the Universe.”

      Please. What a crock of shit. Next.

      You said:

      “Sounds like maybe you feel “abandoned” but that was your choice. No one is ever abandoned if they are open to Consciousness, the field of all possibilities.
      If one finds oneself chronically complaining about others, blaming others or demanding from others, look to the Ego and small self. One’s got to learn to contain those “demons” before one has any hope of deserving access to The Great Cosmic GPS system for navigating through life with the maximum support for one’s actions.”

      You would make a horrible shrink and I think you need to utilize “The Great Cosmic GPS system” you claim to know so much about to help you find your way back to whatever hippie commune stuck in the 60′s you came from.

      Interesting that when one reads this verse carefully it implies that one must not only receive the mark but also must worship the beast and his image. IOW, it implies at least to me that receiving the mark by itself but not worshiping the beast does not condemn one.

      “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God,…..”

          “Luck” has nothing to do with it. Doesn’t the Bible instruct one to be as cunning as snakes when necessary? It would appear to me that ‘taking the mark’ but at the same time inwardly loathing the image of the beast would be such cunning.

          There where your heart is will be your treasure.

          Taking a ‘tatoo’ shouldn’t condemn one else even the elderly, infirm, very young, etc., would be condemned as well. IMO, the taking of the mark requires two things: indeed the physical mark itself but more importantly also taking the spirtual one as well. Hence the word ‘and’ in the verse of which you cite.

          If you aren’t as cunning as the snake which is your adversary then in effect you are useless to defend those that lack it.

          Think. It is no sin to do so.

      A fine, upstanding, church going man endured a horrific home invasion where his wife and daughter were brutalized while he was tied up. The thugs eventual murdered them all and fled. When the man got to heaven, he was able to ask God,”My family! Why didn’t You do something to save us?” God replied,”I allowed the invention of weapons for a reason. Did not My Son tell His followers in regards to a sword, ‘If you don’t have one, sell your garment and buy one.’?

      It is scary to think that there is an elite group out there that actually thinks America will lay down as we give up our Soverneigty as a Nation, whether it’s to the N.A.U. or the NWO.

      Listen, a badger doesn’t look for a fight, on the other hand if he is cornered, he will defend!

        I am going to do the best that I can at home, on the job and in my community. I have been looking at this corruption since the 1970′s and have had a lot of time to worry. Well, let me tell you that worrying will get you an early grave. Dale Carnegie wrote a book titled “How To Stop Worrying And Start Living”. Pick up a copy. Learn to solve problems, do the best you can and live your life the way you want to.
        This economic and social mess is beyond our reach as far as individuals but we ARE able to solve our own problems. Let me go on to say that the media in this country is corrupt. They think that they are in the business of social engineering. You have to tune out the noise that they spit out and think rationally as Mr. Celente advises, or make all the wrong decisions. Make your plans, do your best and GO FOR IT ! Lead by example and others will follow.

          all around good advice. You make some time tested good points. I also try to not worry about things i have no control over. But concentrate on things you can change.

      What’s coming is right there, if you are paying attention and reading between the lines. The most important thing Celente says is about the black swan event. Another bogus attack or event that will put all the under 25s to work… The answer is Africa. Look at a map. From Libya (does that rhyme with Dubya?) to Nigeria, there’s OIL there that needs to be taken. Quack-a-daffi is on the run, so we’ll have to smoke him out of his hole. Time to secure all the pipelines for Shell and Exxon. As a reward, Europe will get a pipeline. More work for the kids! There are already troops in the Horn of Africa. Soon there will be more. Much more. They’ll march around the desert and wish there were back here working at WalMart.

      These “pros” keep saying that a collapse is coming and nothing has happened. First it was going to happen no later than June now it is October. I am beginning to think that they are spreading fear for no reason other than their own egos. Remember when they were saying that the US was going to collapse because of the debt ceiling? It is becoming a real farce.

        People need to concentrate on improving their future. Too much time is being wasted in worry and distraction by the slow inevitable decline of the world around them. People fill their heads with junk, enslaved or hypnotized, and the years pass without taking action.

        Instead of fretting about SHTF, be happy and confident that you are taking steps to adapt to the unexpected. An essential part of preparation for the unknown events ahead involves adapting to change.

      “nothing has happened!” they say as the jumping continues.

      Was in UK during riots: what I saw wasn’t a police state but a wimp state. The police just stood down and let people get attacked, buildings burn, women raped and people murdered. You had to defend yourself because the police didn’t care.

      That’s how it is going: wimp state not police state.
