Posted on 08/01/2011 1:23:23 PM PDT by Kartographer
In his latest quarterly Trends Journal (Summer 2011), Gerald Celente provides us another history of the future, in which he discusses global economic, monetary, and political events as they happen and what their consequences will be for months, years and decades to come. As he has said before, it is only a matter of time before a major terror attack is executed in a major Western nation. And once it happens it will send shock waves throughout the world, leading to mass global panic and a further tightening of the noose around the necks of the populace:
What will another major terror strike mean? Should an attack hit one of the major NATO nations, the effects, this time, will go global. Bank holidays will be called, the US and other fragile economies will crumble, gold and silver will soar, and already-troubled currencies will crash. Economic martial law will be declared. Introduced as a temporary measure, once in place it will remain in place (like the curfews and draconian security precautions installed by despots and dictators everywhere). Civil rights will be suspended and, particularly in America, Homeland Security, already intolerably intrusive, will achieve an Orwellian omnipresence.

“I see the bad moon arisin,
I see trouble on the way”
I am John Galt.
“A cut aint a cut,” Sen. Coburn about 2 mins ago. I really don’t understand why repbulicans have not been able to make this point with the American people. A cut in the proposed rate of increase to a less unreasonable rate of increase IS NOT A CUT.
A distant thunder...
States themselves need to go Galt.
So, what is the difference between Martial Law and ECONOMIC Martial Law?
The states are going to win. Read this thread.
Had an eerie feeling this morning as I walked into the office building going to the elevators. In the front mezzanine area where the bank is, there were a dozen people or more standing there waiting eagerly for the bank to open for business. My first thought was, "Do these people know something that I don't know?". With all the drama going on over the budget fiasco and talk of default and also all the financial mess happening in Europe, I actually wondered for a moment if I was seeing the beginning of a bank run. Call me nervous.
You should really spell check your blog before posting.
Poor grammar and spelling makes a lot of people reach for the “Back” button.
I know the bill collectors are pretty damned antsy lately.
That’s a tough job in this economy.
Heard a radio commercial chiding people for keeping their savings in cash, not in the banks.
The fact that there is commercial tells me that there IS a silent run on the banks.
People are losing hope and confidence in the government. I sense growing frustration and cynicism.
Freepers were simply ahead of the curve on this subject. I pulled my accounts out of Chase in 2007 and went to a safer bank. My investor guru buddy tells me that I am almost always right, but my predictions come years too early.
The banking system, deficit spending, runaway entitlements, etc. are NOT SUSTAINABLE. This has been recognized for years. The only question was how long the government could lie, pretend, and delay the inevitable.
I just hope the bubble pops while Obama is in office so he can take the credit for the results of democrat policies.
I thought it was yours... Sorry.
So often someone posts a link to their blog where they annihilate a left wing position... But they do it with poor grammar and/or spelling which ruins it and guarantees that I will not share it.
Your link has errors right in the very first sentence, although after reading more of it, I noticed the rest was actually OK.
At their own risk. Many of us will not sit still for that level of tyranny.
Thats what will happen. The states will just go their own way and ignore the Fed govt. Besides 20,000 troops couldn’t subjegate more than about 3 large cities. What do we have in Afghanistan? 130,000 troops? And the Taliban are still running rampant.
90 million armed and highly ticked off Americans agains’t 20,000 US troops. Hmmmm!! I’m liking those odds.
I would sure like our top candidates declare they will defund homeland security. A dangerous waste of money.
If I had a blog I would never link it to a FR post! They HANG BLOG PIMPS ON FR!
Was in the bank today. The employees seemed very worried. I wonder if the management is telling them they should have a plan.
Actually I’m a lot more worried about the illegals than I am about US troops. There are somewhere on the far side of 30 million of them here. Plus we’re apparently arming them in Mexico and central America.
“In the name of the general welfare,” read Jeffrey Immelt the economics advisor, “to protect the people’s security, to achieve full equality and total stability, it is decreed for the duration of the national emergency that—
“Point One. All workers, wage earners and employees of any kind whatsoever shall henceforth be attached to their jobs and shall not leave nor be dismissed nor change employment, under penalty of law. The penalty shall be determined by the Super Congress, such Congress to be appointed by the Bureau of Economic Planning and National Resources. All persons reaching the age of twenty-one shall report to the Super Congress, which shall assign them to where, in its opinion, their services will best serve the interests of the nation.
“Point Two. All industrial, commercial, manufacturing and business establishments of any nature whatsoever shall henceforth remain in operation, and the owners of such establishments shall not quit nor leave nor retire, nor close, sell or transfer their business, under penalty of the nationalization of their establishment and of any and all of their property.
“Point Three. All patents and copyrights, pertaining to any devices, inventions, formulas, processes and works of any nature whatsoever, shall be turned over to the nation as a patriotic emergency gift by means of Gift Certificates to be signed voluntarily by the owners of all such patents and copyrights. The Unification Board shall then license the use of such patents and copyrights to all applicants, equally and without discrimination, for the purpose of eliminating monopolistic practices, discarding obsolete products and making the best available to the whole nation. No trademarks, brand names or copyrighted titles shall be used. Every formerly patented product shall be known by a new name and sold by all manufacturers under the same name, such name to be selected by the Unification Board. All private trademarks and brand names are hereby abolished.
“Point Four. No new devices, inventions, products, or goods of any nature whatsoever, not now on the market, shall be produced, invented, manufactured or sold after the date of this directive. The Office of Patents and Copyrights is hereby suspended.
“Point Five. Every establishment, concern, corporation or person engaged in production of any nature whatsoever shall henceforth produce the same amount of goods per year as it, they or he produced during the Zero Baseline Year, no more and no less. The year to be known as the Basic or Yardstick Year is to be the year ending on the date of this directive. Over or under production shall be fined, such fines to be determined by the Super Congress.
“Point Six. Every person of any age, sex, class or income, shall henceforth spend the same amount of money on the purchase of goods per year as he or she spent during the Basic Year, no more and no less. Over or under purchasing shall be fined, such fines to be determined by the Super Congress.
“Point Seven. All wages, prices, salaries, dividends, profits, interest rates and forms of income of any nature whatsoever, shall be frozen at their present figures, as of the date of this directive.
“Point Eight. All cases arising from and rules not specifically provided for in this directive, shall be settled and determined by the Super Congress, whose decisions will be final.”
Ok that’s all of it. Please sit and think about this and what it means.
We could also be hit by an asteroid or comet.
She certainly is a cutie.
Me too. I live in AZ. Getting prepped for SHTF.
>>Thats a tough job in this economy.<<
My HARD $$ instinct is to become a commie, then get a job as a “czar/tsar” job on the barry the zero administration. The great part is you don’t actually have to understand the basics of the subject for which you have been hired, nor must you ever work again.
Then that damn “conscience” that says “you must EARN what you are PAID FOR” kicks in and I remember I must both sleep and look at myself when I shave.
Is it God’s greatest gift or biggest joke that people of conscience must stand by while those of selfishness and sloth profit from their terrible acts?
Hmmm, that calls for another tick on the storm is brewing list.
I’ve pulled some cash out of the bank to keep available, just in case, since the 2008 blow-up, but I keep vaccillating over whether to go ahead and be drawing down the remainder that’s in the bank, or not. Sometimes I let my procrastination cause me problems. I keep thinking that hopefully I’ll see the signs of what’s coming in enough time to yank the rest way before a bank holiday happens, but now I’m not so sure I’ll notice in time.
To quote that Dodge commercial guy, "Well, that's cain't be good." I guess I better be paying closer attention to my bank employees demeanor.
Don’t go around tonight,
Well, it’s bound to take your life,
There’s a bad moon on the rise.
Hope you got your things together.
Hope you are quite prepared to die.
Looks like we’re in for nasty weather.
One eye is taken for an eye.
You could. Me I’ve taken steps.
I waited in line at my motor bank about 20 min. to cash a check. there was more traffic there than I can ever remember seeing.
Maybe they were just cashing their government checks before we go bankrupt.
Ugh, Pelosi is yammering on about something on ABC right now. Probably trashing the GOP but all I hear from her is blah, blah, blah.
Where the ell is that from?
Better a month early than a day late.
No government has yet tried to promulgate anything as far-reaching as Points Five and Six. Instead, the government attempts to bribe businesses and consumers into maintaining a “current” or “acceptable” level of spending, through the use of subsidies. The total amount of subsidies proposed by the Barack Obama administration is unprecedented in scope, and the arrogance that this administration has thus far shown would lead one to suspect that formal directives quite similar to Points Five, Six, and Seven will be forthcoming. As a further consideration, Point Seven has ample precedent, as described above.

A gold market exec told me not to store gold, but to keep it on hand!
Yes the ones that are still here in GA are stealing everything that is not tied down. Break ins are rampant. They broke into my Mom’s house last week. Thank God she was at the hairdresser. The good news is that most of them are heading out of GA and Ala due to our immigration laws going into effect this month. Ours went into effect yesterday.
The average teller in the bank has little knowledge of whats really going on. They are probably worried about their jobs though, since most banks are downsizing.
Frog in a pot.
That's a big, ol' duh!
