Renowned trend researcher, Gerald Celente, said at the beginning of 2014 that the economy would tank and war is on its way. It looks like his predictions are coming true. On the economy, Celente contends, “This whole so-called recovery has been built up on unprecedented levels of cheap money. They keep dumping it into the market. They keep pushing it out there, and it’s not only in the United States. You have, over in Europe, you have negative interest rates. You now have, coming out of China, their debt to GDP ratio is over 250%. You are going to see default coming about in Argentinian bonds. You are looking at one crisis adding up after another. You heard Janet Yellen, the Fed Chief, come out a week ago warning there is trouble in the so-called housing recovery in the United States. . . . So, what is going to happen? When interest rates go up, the economy is going to crash down. . . . They have built up an even bigger bubble.”
On the possible wars, we start with the Ukraine crisis. Celente contends, “I remember when Flight 800 went down off the coast of Long Island in the late 1990’s. People said they saw missiles shooting up at it. What did they tell us? Don’t rush to judgment. We’re going to get to the bottom of this. It went on for months, if not years. Within minutes after that Malaysian airline went down, the rush to judgment already began. A plane was shot out of the air and it looks like Russian separatists did it, and they couldn’t do it on their own, and they needed help from Russia.” Celente says there is little proof Russia did anything, and he thinks much of the mainstream media coverage is simply “propaganda.” Celente explains, “They keep putting out the propaganda that instills fear and hysteria within the people that encourages them to go to war.” When asked if war in Ukraine was coming and that it might turn into a global war, Celente said, without hesitation, “Yes, absolutely.”
Celente goes on to say, “I have to tell you I am so saddened by the cruelty that is being committed around the world and whitewashed with platitudes and propaganda as to why people are slaughtering other people, whether it’s in Nigeria or whether it’s in Mali, whether it’s in Syria or whether it’s in Gaza, whether it’s in Bahrain or whether it’s in Yemen.”
In Iraq and Syria, Celente sees more trouble from the newly formed so-called “Islamic State.” Celente says, “There is foreign intervention that is fueling the fire with armaments. They keep using these words such as al Qaeda, ISIS, and they keep making up this stuff. These are criminals. These are criminal organizations. When you read back in the Trends Journal, days after 9/11, they already started blaming the Islamic fundamentalists as bombing The World Trade Center. Now, they are using Islam, Muslim, and they are playing the game. These are murderers. They have nothing to do with religion. They are mafias, and there are groups of them. This is what happens to any country that is ripped with ongoing civil war, and the strongest groups are taking control. They are hiding behind a flag of religion to commit their crimes. The other side is using that to make us hate a religion rather than the sick people that are committing the crimes.” Celente goes on to say, “We are looking at destabilization in the Middle East with no end in sight. It’s only going to get worse unless this killing and excuse for the murders from both sides stops.”
On the crisis in Israel with Hamas and the Palestinians, Celente says, “If this continues to increase at the rate it is going, it will be hell for everyone. There is also the fear that this could spread into the Lebanese border. As a trend forecaster, if peace is not brought to that region and this continues to spread, and if it goes into Lebanon, it will be hell on earth for everyone in that region. . . . We are building up to World War III.”

told me he was worried about massive loss of life if we continue on the path the world is on now. Celente also told me he has started a new website to foster global peace. It’s called OccupyPeace.us.
