Gerald Celente of Trends Research International has a habit of predicting nasty events before they happen. He just emailed us his selection of 12 things we’d rather not see in 2012:

One megatrend looms on the near horizon. And we forecast that when it strikes, it will be a shock felt around the world. Hyperbole it’s not! Our research has revealed that at the very highest levels of government this megatrend has been seriously discussed. Read on:

1. Economic Martial Law: Given the current economic and geopolitical conditions, the central banks and world governments already have plans in place to declare economic martial law … with the possibility of military martial law to follow.

2. Battlefield America: With a stroke of the Presidential pen, language was removed from an earlier version of the National Defense Authorization Act, granting the President authority to act as judge, jury and executioner. Citizens, welcome to “Battlefield America.”

3. Invasion of the Occtupy: 15 years ago, Gerald Celente predicted in his book Trends 2000 that prolonged protests would hit Wall Street in the early years of the new millennium and would spread nationwide. The “Occtupy” is now upon us, and it is like nothing history has ever witnessed.

4. Climax Time: The financial house of cards is collapsing, and in 2012 many of the long-simmering socioeconomic and geopolitical trends that Celente has accurately forecast will come to a climax. Some will arrive with a big bang and others less dramatically … but no less consequentially. Are you prepared? And what’s next for the world?

5. Technocrat Takeover: “Democracy is Dead; Long Live the Technocrat!” A pair of lightning-quick financial coup d’états in Greece and Italy have installed two unelected figures as head of state. No one yet in the mainstream media is calling this merger of state and corporate powers by its proper name: Fascism, nor are they calling these “technocrats” by their proper name: Bankers! Can a rudderless ship be saved because technocrat is at the helm?

6. Repatriate! Repatriate!: It took a small, but financially and politically powerful group to sell the world on globalization, and it will take a large, committed and coordinated citizens’ movement to “un-sell” it. “Repatriate! Repatriate!” will pit the creative instincts of a multitude of individuals against the repressive monopoly of the multinationals.

7. Secession Obsession: Winds of political change are blowing from Tunisia to Russia and everywhere in between, opening a window of opportunity through which previously unimaginable political options may now be considered: radical decentralization, Internet-based direct democracy, secession, and even the peaceful dissolution of nations, offering the possibility for a new world “disorder.”

8. Safe Havens: As the signs of imminent economic and social collapse become more pronounced, legions of New Millennium survivalists are, or will be, thinking about looking for methods and ways to escape the resulting turmoil. Those “on-trend” have already taken measure to implement Gerald Celente’s 3 G’s: Gold, Guns and a Getaway plan. Where to go? What to do? Top Trends 2012 will guide the way.

9. Big Brother Internet: The coming year will be the beginning of the end of Internet Freedom: A battle between the governments and the people. Governments will propose legislation for a new “authentication technology,” requiring Internet users to present the equivalent of a driver’s license and/or bill of health to navigate cyberspace. For the general population it will represent yet another curtailing of freedom and level of governmental control.

10. Direct vs. Faux Democracy: In every corner of the world, a restive populace has made it clear that it’s disgusted with “politics as usual” and is looking for change. Government, in all its forms – democracy, autocracy, monarchy, socialism, communism – just isn’’t working. The only viable solution is to take the vote out of the hands of party politicians and institute Direct Democracy. If the Swiss can do it, why can’t anyone else?

11. Alternative Energy 2012: Even under the cloud of Fukushima, the harnessing of nuclear power is being reinvigorated by a fuel that is significantly safer than uranium and by the introduction of small, modular, portable reactors that reduce costs and construction time. In addition, there are dozens of projects underway that explore the possibility of creating cleaner, competitively priced liquid fuels distilled from natural sources. Plan to start saying goodbye to conventional liquid fuels!

12. Going Out in Style: In the bleak terrain of 2012 and beyond, “Affordable sophistication” will direct and inspire products, fashion, music, the fine arts and entertainment at all levels. US businesses would be wise to wake up and tap into the dormant desire for old time quality and the America that was.


O.K. All I can say about Gerald Celente of Trends Research International is that he is scary right most of the time. And I have to agree with everything that he said in this article.

We have been discussing most of if not all of these subjects here on ATS for over a year now, and it seems like we have seen this coming also.

Are you ready?

2012 is going to be a bumpy ride!

Sure, he's predicted some things. He's also been wrong as much as he's been right.

Just another prophet of gloom...profiting from fear.

You got that right man!

I walked out the door this morning here in Ohio to get the newspaper and it was warm enough to wear shorts.

I'm getting a tan for Christmas this year.

I've been seeing these trends for years.

Nothing new here.

But he is making bank by making these claims. And he does seem to be on target for the most part. And you'll notice he doesn't put dates on his claims, just general time periods. But this is all common sense for those who pay attention.

Nostrodamus he is not.

Seems highly opinionated, especially with the occupy protesters.

Then what would call Gerald Celente before he started "profiting from fear"?

FACT: Prior to the financial collapse, Gerald Celente was on all the MSM news outlets talking about ways to make money in the system. Where to invest and what type of innovations could be created in order for businesses to stay ahead of the curve so to speak. Every MSM News outlet praised Gerald Celente, even going as far as to say he "would give Nostrodamus a run for his money".

So was he a shill then? Obviously prior to the financial problems we see today and have been experiencing, Celente was not "selling fear" and did not project doom and gloom in his trends forecast.

FACT: Once Celente began making negative projections, the same MSM that praised him before, began distancing themselves. Then we started to hear that Celente was just all doom and gloom who was profiting from fear.

Does it matter that he has been right? Go back and look at his trends forecast. He has always been very clear about what is to come and it has all come just as he said it would. We have seen riots, we have seen uprising, revolutions. Is it just "doom and gloom" if what he is saying is actually happening?

I wonder if he's talking about the governments of the world adopting something like the Rossi ECAT or something simalar. Rossi's ECAT is a type of "clean" portable reactor if I understand his machine properly.

Possibly the cleaner competitively priced liquid fuels is the Japanese plastic to oil reclamation machine on a MEGA scale?

bigthink.com...

I could see plastic recycling become mandatory in the future if that idea takes off.

The sad truth is Celente is more right than wrong. He makes money consulting and buying/selling gold... which is where MF Global got him,

being a trends reasearcher Celente just follow where the trends lead. There are patterns in historical and economic cycles ...

Love the comments (not) about how Gelente's predictions are paranoid or that anyone could see it coming etc. Hahahahahahahahaha........ mmmmkay.

Gelente makes a great point about governments forecasting the end to the housing crisis and recessions - how can they claim to see when it is going to end when they couldn't see it before it began.

Trends are your friend. Trends don't lie.
In currency trading (forex); In the long term you will make more trading the trend than trading against it
So is life

No, actually he hasn't.
The vast majority of what he's predicted has come to fruition, you just need to go back through what he's said to see that.
The timings are not always right, because so many things change and affect the outcome. But he's been spot on with most of what he's suggested will happen.

I love this too, we're trusting all the specialists, economist and officials - who never saw what millions of others could see around the corner - to fix everything.
If they had such poor judgment before, or were too corrupt to begin with, how the hell do we expect things to be fixed? It's laughable.

the underlying principle here is that we should no longer Trust the Custodians of
financial accounts we have... because they seem to believe that the individual investor no longer has an account that belongs solely to them, instead the Facility/Bank/Custodian/Manager has a right to your funds before the individual does.


now, on the bright side of things, i have a ROTH Account that has credited my account with a little over $5k in income & capital gains during 2011... even as the Fund lost ~10% in holdings value.

now that I have the financial means to fix the roof of our house and to remove a dozen pine trees which are too close to the house itself...
i feel i better redeem that $5k before the 10th of January 2012 at least... or the 'custodian' may make off with my credited funds the way MFGlobal fleeced Celente out of his gold futures account money.


cheers

 


 



in response to his Item #5 about bankers=technocrats and being duly appointed to MP status of Nations...while sidestepping the elector process...


Technocracy is a totalitarian system of government where scientists, engineers and technicians monitor and control all facets of personal and civic life - economic, social and political. Herein lies the real danger: Who are these unelected controllers and why should anyone believe that they would be benevolent dictators instead of tyrants? Americans are a freedom-loving people who would certainly reject Technocracy’s stealth takeover, if only they were aware of it. Indeed, Americans did pointedly reject Technocracy in the 1930’s!






the above snip is from:

The dark horse of the New World Order is not Communism, Socialism or Fascism: It is Technocracy
canadafreepress.com...



so he's dead on at least about that area,,, the globe/free world/G20/G7...
all turning to fascism or even dictitorial power
