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.
