Celente - Disastrous Global Collapse & Riots Will Engulf World

Reading between the lines a bit, it seems to me Celente is making a political prediction more than an economic one. He talks about riots and protests. Whilst he may be right about the collapse of emerging economies, politics and the reaction of the people is much harder to predict. When a government caves in to popular protests and when it digs its heels in is hard to predict, take Assad for example, we would have thought he would be gone by now. Unless he is using some other way to predict his stuff other than mathematical analysis, then I would say his timing as to the political ramifications is as good as anyone else's guess.

More reason to riot...

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) -- The lingering effects of drought across the Great Plains in recent years have led to another decrease in the U.S. cattle herd.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service reports that the U.S. inventory of cattle and calves totaled 87.7 million animals as of Jan. 1. That was down by about 1.6 million cattle, or 2 percent, compared with this time last year.

The agency says this is the lowest January inventory since 1951.

This can't be good...

Like I put out on FB yesterday better have a plan and food store ready soon just in case.

We're already seeing the effects of it.

We went to buy ground beef for our chili last weekend and it was $6/lb. Granted, we were buying the 97% lean stuff, but even stepping down the next grade, it was still going to cost us the same when we compensated for lost fat.

Hi ketsuko,

What have you done to cushion your 401K? I am looking for answers that I can research to apply to my investments.

Thanks for any info or direction to consider you have that could help!

Diversified it as much as possible, and my husband took a look at the stocks that weathered the last crash the best and recovered the quickest and put a little extra dash there (these were stocks that improved before Obama had time to really start cronying). He's hoping that was a sign of businesses that were being run more or less soundly.

And no government ... as much as possible.

Thanks again ketsuko!

And to those of you that have little or much tied into your hope for a future nest-egg, I wouldn't pull out all of the way.

Form a plan quick that will help to mitigate the worse case scenario without destroying the vehicle you have used to prepare for retirement or just savings in general.

I was a late comer to the 401K scene. I squandered many years without putting something back and finally joined a 401K plan when the market was at or near rock bottom a few years ago. My logic was that If I got started when it was all tanked and I believed that it would re-bound and recover / grow, I would be in a great position to get started. It has paid off so far.

I will weather the coming storm but with due-diligence in watching the trends while trying to stay ahead of the bears.

If anyone in the know has any specific strategies, I would love to know what you think!

If all else fails and anarchy prevails....As quoted by someone in politics "What Does It Matter?" I'll go to my SHTF Plan A.

I am a conservative, licensed gun toting, compassionate, realistic believer in the constitution and Patriotic American.

On a personal note: Good luck to all God's people and pray for better times!

Well, we look at it this way - we don't have enough in it that if we pulled it, it would be enough to be any major help to us in buying power.

And as far as we're concerned now, it's money that might as well not exist for all that we have access to it for all practical intents and purposes.

So, we might as well prepare as best we can with the money we do have access to, and let the rest ride and hope that one strategy or the other will pay off.

I agree....I am trying to prepare within the confounds of the 401K offerings.

I will not cash-out as the amount is around 40k and the tax penalty will be bad and if there is not a major melt down, I want to hedge that possibility too...not to mention the hoops you have to go through to just cash out a 401K. I just want to cushion, move around (expenses to do that as well) and limit the negative effect of a collapse or crash if that is even possible.

Wont be surprised if this comes to pass.

By the way has anyone read the PDF file titled silent weapons. It practically outlines what the social engineers are/have been doing for the past 60-70 years.

I already i had a feeling what the social engineers/ elites had in mind a while now. I dont need a PDF telling me either ways after what i experienced.

Either way i wont surprised should this come to pass. The Elites are getting worried thats why they want to nuke us. They would rather die then fear the flames of a million angry billion people rioting.

But i know for a fact that the same elites are cowards they would not nuke the world they arent thats stupid.

There could be rioting for a short period, but very quickly people wont have time to waste rioting, they will be too busy just trying to survive.

You know, I first heard Gerald Celente's dire warnings back in 2009 and read all about his incredible track record for tracking trends and he predicted this correct and that correct. I was pretty impressed and also scared to say the least..

The thing is, this man has been spewing doom porn since 2009 with words such as "complete global financial collapse by the end of the year". This was 2009.. Sorry Gerald but that didn't exactly happen.

Then it was the same thing when 2010 rolled around. "Global financial collapse is imminent".. Well that didn't happen either.

Then I remember "Your going to see a complete global financial apocalypse on a scale never seen before. We will have world wide food riots in all developed countries by 2012"....... Nope, sorry Gerald, wrong again...

It's 2014 now and NOTHING of the likes of which he is talking about has happened. I've still got food, and I don't see a financial apocalypse happening. Lots of corruption and rampant debt yes.. but it all hasn't collapsed like he promised.

For a supposed immaculate track record at using trends to predict things extremely accurately.... He's sure ruined that record in the last few years if you ask me.

"DISASTROUS GLOBAL COLLA...." Yeah ok, Gerald. Ok..

I pretty much feel the same way.

This guy seems more enchanted with his ego - with wanting to be proven right about a catastrophic collapse, hence his need to constantly reiterate the same prediction every month or so even though he's been doing this since at least 2010 on "news" shows like Alex Jones.

He seems especially enthralled with the prospect of riots, social breakdown, the impending collapse of the social-structure that he obviously detests - or perhaps, is upset still exists. In general, I distrust anyone who froths at the mouth when they discuss their own views - theories, actually, hypotheses - as if they were infallible.

well said. I refer to page 1 and a post I made in which I mention the fact that this man who is the seer of all things financial lost a very large sum of money I think about 2 years ago....he didn't see that coming

Imagine what will happen when you notice all the gold have disappeared and all papers on gold are worth nothing since the gold is not there in the vaults. . When you finally get that the owners of FED was only common thieves who used complicated words to steal from everyone then the tune will become very different.

And the fact that you got so little support (stars) for this comment tells you that the phrase; 'You Can't Handle the Truth', is as true today as it has ever been.

ps~not 'you' OP, but you as in the general populace.

We will just 0 the debt and jail the thugs like Iceland just did.

When? Because the clock is ticking.

I absolutely agree with you 100%.

I'm also not completely ruling out that a global financial collapse might happen, and it might even be as bad as he's 'predicting'.

But nothing has come to pass the way he has said it would in the time frame he seemed to have been so sure of.

I personally think he's using scare tactics and mongering to get people afraid of what MIGHT happen and get them to sign up to his forecast trends journal... Which certainly is not free, by the way

Oh you bleeding heart economic party poopers. This could of been averted if we went to war with syria

Not again. smh

In order to keep control of people, TBTB will tweat people's fear. Seems like it's working well.

edit on 31-1-2014 by Realtruth because: (no reason given)

Would you mind on elaborating how, if they manufactured what this fear in particular, what is it doing? Is it just keeping people worried about it, so that they believe nothing can be done because it's gone too far? IMO it's pushing more people into being prepared and off the grid. Run for the hills, my states population is growing.
