2018 Predictions – Trump, Clintons, Economy, Gold, World – Gerald Celente

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Top trends researcher Gerald Celente says he sees strong trends shaping up for 2018. First up, the embattled President Trump.  Celente says, “There’s not been one shred of evidence, period, paragraph, that Russia had anything to do with tapping into or hacking the DNC information and going into their computers.  It has nothing to do with Trump, but what it does is it’s taking the people’s minds off the major issues.  It’s also building that military industrial complex even bigger. We’ve got to watch out for those Russians.  Russia’s GDP is about 7% of America’s.  Trump has increased our military budget $54 billion.  The entire Russian military budget is $48 billion.  You talk to the average person, and they hate the Russians.  It’s working perfectly . . . We don’t see Trump being impeached.”

On the Clintons, Celente contends, “Going back to the Uranium One deal. Yes, it is going to fall back on the Clintons.  The hundreds of millions of dollars given to the Clinton Foundation by Russians as they did the uranium deal.  Those are facts.  We don’t see anything happening to Trump.

On the economy, Celente says, “We are now going into almost a year going into the Trump rally. I was negative on the stock market until Trump got elected.  What happened?  We did a 180 (degree turn) a week after he got elected and said this rally is real. . . . Trump is pro-business . . . it’s good for the markets and that sector.”

But what about the 2018 economic forecast? Celente says, “For the economy, we see a slowdown.  Interest rates are going up.  That’s the bet.  Interest rates are going to go up another 25 basis points in December.  So, we believe by the 2nd quarter of 2018, you are going to start to see a slowdown because the only thing that has pumped up the markets is the cheap money. . . .The fish rots from the head down, the markets are going to melt from the head down.  The head being the very rich.  The top 10% of the rich own 96% of the stock. . . . So, this thing rots down, and we are seeing it now on research.  It’s going to fall from the top.”

Celente also predicts China will make big headlines in 2018. Celente points out, “China is not using petro-dollars.  They are buying Russian oil, their biggest supplier, with yuan.  You can cash in the yuan for gold.  It’s the same with Iran and with Saudi Arabia.  This is another reason that China is going to go further.  You can start bringing your dollars to Walmart in a wheelbarrow because that’s what they will be worth. . . . What kept the dollar alive as the world reserve currency is that all the oil being traded is being bought in dollars.  If you are paying for oil in other currencies . . . the Federal Reserve can’t keep printing up all the money that they want.  They won’t have it out there as a reserve currency.  You will see inflation skyrocket in this country, and gold will hit like a Bitcoin high.  We believe it’s starting to happen.

After the Interview:

Gerald Celente also says the NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) will be renegotiated by President Trump, and he does not need Congressional approval. Celente predicts, “The renegotiation of NAFTA will be a big positive for Republicans and a big selling point for them in the 2018 Mid-term Elections.  Right now, NAFTA only helps multinational companies.  When it’s renegotiated, it will help American citizens.

      Can anyone tell me why Sessions isn’t going after the Clinton/Obama crimes?

      The only thing that I can think is that he is being blackmailed or threatened in some way.

      And why isn’t Sessions being relived of his duties?

      I would be interested in what any of you have to say about this.

      Thank you,

      Can anyone tell me why the AG isn’t going after the Clinton/Obama crimes?

      The only thing that I can think is that he is being blackmailed or threatened in some way.

      And why isn’t the Attorney General being relived of his duties?

      I would be interested in what any of you have to say about this.

    No One knows whats going on even Celente, we all know things will get worse.
    Reality is the bankers and politicians have alot of tricks up their sleeve, so dont count on 2018 being the year it comes down.

    • Anthony Australia 🇦🇺

      They’ll grind us into dust over decades. The slower it’s done the less resistance we, the people, will give them.

      • Charles H

        Why war with older, braver individuals – when in a few years, a more malleable sheeple generation will surrender themselves with ease?

    • Hatemail

      2013 was the year, then it was 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and so on. Bla bla bla.
      I say don’t worry about it but be vigilant and prepared. If and when it does go down your life will not be any better, it will be worse.
      Live for today.

    It is obvious that Trump is under assault by the Deep State … lets throw around some random thoughts … as to how the Deep State will effect “regime change” here in America … their MO in other nations like the Ukraine, Lybya, Syria, etc. was to create “a fasist army” or “a terrorist army” like ISIS … to slaughter and kill people… so as to begin their “color revolution” … who did the Deep State hire for the job to get the revolutions started in other countries? … Soros … now guess who recently bought $42 million dollars of “put options” on Casinos right before the Las Vegas slaughter … Soros … guess who is putting money into the “Antifa army”and “PMC’s” (Private Military Companies) … Soros …it is now coming to light that eight(8) helicopters were hired with para-military forces aboard armed with M249 SAWS that did the Vegas shooting as the opening salvo of the revolution the Deep State intends to start on Nov 4th to effect “regime change” and nulify the Presidential election!!

    • Paul ...

      For Trump to nullify helicopter attacks by Soros hired para-military forces upon American citizens he should hand out “singer missiles” to police departments in each State to make it more difficult for the Deep State to create massive atrocities that kill large numbers of people (to get their color revolution started)! …also by using Jim Richard’s “stock watch program” to see unusual stock selling or shorting in a particular industry (like the airlines on 9-11 and the Casinos before the Las Vegas shooting) set up a special team in the PPT to print as much money as it takes to hold the particular stocks steady during an attack (so the gang perpetrating the attack loses money on their option trade) instead of making more money to fund and “boot-strap” even further attacks!!

      • Paul ...

        Besides handing out “stinger missiles” to police departments … Trump should have the FAA call in US fighter planes to take down any aircraft that modifies its “call code” or “turns it off completely” they way these helicopters did when they fired machine guns into the Las Vegas crowd … seems one of these helicopters even landed on the roof of a casino to extract a couple of snipers … now I’m hearing that the “lone gun-man patsy” had “no cartridge casings” on the floor of his hotel room and that the window in his room was broken from the inside but by bullets being fired from the outside!! … just as the Zapruder film gave the lie to the “single shooter story” in the JFK assassination … the helicopter film is giving the lie to the “single shooter story” in the Las Vegas assassination of 59 Americans … and just like when JFK was taken down “to do a regime change” … it is coming to light that many eye witnesses are now being killed who witnessed the Las Vegas shooting being done from helicopters!!!

        • Frank

          Paul, take a chill pill and check out the photo of Paddock’s room (and body) where lots of shell casings are seen on the floor. If you claim these were put there after the fact, then you really need some help. And by the way, 8 helicopters firing SAWs down into that crowd would have killed a LOT more people. Get a grip on reality.

          • Bob

            There should have been more casings.

            Why was the photo of the dead suspect taken in two parts? There is no actual proof it was Paddock there, if we are being precise…

        • james

          You have a very vivid imagination, or could it be drugs? or lack of drugs ?

          • Paul ...

            Hey Frank and James … check out “your brains fluoride levels” … can’t you see what is presented here?? … https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=61&v=87ggHaEFNU0 … Hint: [It’s a helicopter shooting in the direction of the crowd at Las Vegas … not toward the building]!! … so forget the “lone gunman theory” this massacre was planned and executed by multiple shooters!!

        • Simon Braxton

          Can you link to the helicopter film you are talking about? (Assuming it’s still there; the Feds are busy on the net.)

    • Deanna Johnston Clark

      I love what Gerald predicted about investments that encourage unity among Americans. Soros isn’t the only one…there are Christians online full of judgement and hellfire for everybody but, natch, themselves. I have written off the negativity and divisive spirit from any quarter. I look for truths that can actually help us.
      A friend of our was a violin teacher who was put in a concentration camp in pre-Hitler Austria (did you know about those?) He became a most wanted by the Gestapo. He escaped somehow. He always told us that you NEVER KNOW what’s really inside people…bad people have good in them and good people have their price.
      Gerald knows this…he sees a change coming towards unity and appreciating what we still have here in the USA to be thankful for.

    • Elusive Joseph

      Paul, your claim that “eight (8) M249 SAW rifles were used in the Las Vegas shooting” is preposterous, and it reflects the fact that you’ve never fired an M249. I’ve been qualified in, and I’ve fired, the M249 when I was in the military. Just one M249 would have killed a lot more than 58 people in such a densely populated, compact area, if fired by a person who is proficient in the weapon.

      • Paul ...

        I didn’t say all eight(8) helicopters were shooting … just one (1) was caught on film shooting … the fact that it was “restrained” to such “few” casualties … is likely because it was meant as a warning to Trump … to play ball with the Deep State “or else”!!

  4. Joseph R

    we can see from the common american man that they are ignorant to the reality in the global economy, believing that USA is still the land of opportunity is very outdated, just go to Swisserland, UAE, Singapore, Neatherlands, Hong Kong and judge for yourself,

    • Frederick

      Poland is doing great JP Morgan just announced their pick for their new office will be Warsaw with over 3000 good paying jobs Google has a new startup campus in a renovated vodka distillery in a poorer lesser known part of the city I was there in July and felt the change Lots of young Israelis moving there as well The bartender in my hotel was a twenty something Israeli kid

      • This sceptred Isle

        probably worried about America’s financial collapse. Who will foot the bill?

  5. Mars

    Time to :
    1) Make your food preps
    2) Clean source(s) of water
    3) Reexamine you defense inventory.
    4) Have a plan to get out of any large city
    when the dollar starts it decent.
    5) Make sure any and all medications are well stocked
    6) All transportation in good working order
    7) A detailed map of all alternate routes around major cities
    8) Currency in bills no larger then twenty’s and silver for small
    purchases. Gold will come into play when the dust settles and
    be used for larger purchases.
    9) Make sure you have clothing that can travel. Good pair of
    hiking boots and pants and jackets that can take abuse in the
    outdoors. Carhart comes to mind.
    10) Keep your preps and your plans quiet, family and only friends
    who are like minded. People who become desperate and with nothing
    to lose will lose it.
    It’s coming folks and is a lot closer then most realize. Stay safe and God Bless.

    • gregd

      Mars ,
      I really wish you were right but I’m thinking it’s not gonna happen in our lifetimes. 3 reasons
      #1 they have more indoctrination to do now that Trump exposed them.
      #2 we have so many guns and ammo.
      #3 as long as all the important countries are printing nobody’s currency can become Zimbabwe unless they want it to.
      Logic and reality don’t apply anymore. The rich will get richer and the poor will stay poor. The judges will be replaced will more corrupted judges. And the laws will only be enforced on the poor. Get used to it folks.
      If I knew this is the way it was going to be I would have never had kids. We have fallen so far and so very fast.

      • Alannon

        I like most here thought it was going to happen, prepared, got out of the market long ago, at less then half what it is now and it still has not happened. GC says going to be a 10% delcline and no crash. WTF. Lessoned learned, for your own peace of mind stop the watching the fear porn or main stream media for that matter.

    • Deanna Johnston Clark

      Doesn’t that lack courage and neighborly compassion? Sounds like you think the Japanese Army is surrounding your town like the Rape of Nanking or the sacking of Jerusalem. Millions of Americans have no such options at all anyway. No room in your lifeboat for them, huh?

    • Paul ...

      Remember the Alamo!
      Remember the Maine!
      Remember JFK!
      Remember 9-11!
      Remember the Las Vegas “helicopter attack”!
      Remember the Manhattan “truck attack”!
      Let’s make the Antifa remember Nov 4!
      Enough of all the above “Cultural Enrichment” the neocons have brought us over the years!
      Enough of the color revolution plans Soros has planned for us!
      If the “burka” wearing Antifa want to kill our Police … lets protect our brothers backs!
      Oil up your pitch forks, your torches and your AK47’s!
      If it’s a revolution Soros wants … don’t needlessly waste ammo … just wait until you see the “whites of their eyes” peering out from under their burka masks … and when they are on your street in your neighborhood … and attack you or your family … you have “a legal right” to defend your family from terrorist attack!!

    I think Mr. Celente missing 2 things:
    -Russia is far more powerful player then China. Just look at the CHIPS it is capable conducting payments in Rubble and Yuan.
    -There will be blood in the streets of the US because huge chunk of the truth will come out about the Kennedy assassination. There is a simple reason for this claim, there are global players who sees the neocons (and other human scum posing as US elites) as pyromaniac with lighter and canister of gas, Which means they want stop them but the neocons don’t get the subtle warnings (like shooting in Manhattan or Las Vegas) so they have to use heavy weapons like bloody mass civil unrest’s to stop them. This also means the released documents will be more or less true because but they will be edited in favor of those global players.

    My 2 cents
    Oracle 911
