Economy Will Crash, World War III Coming-Gerald Celente

Gerald Celente: When Interest Rates go Up, the Economy is Going to Crash Down!By Greg Hunter’s

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.”

    Gerald Celente’s “ideal” is so far from the underlying issues that effect Israel and the Palestinians it is not even worth debating. Good try Greg in trying to debate; you did the best you could. Celente is blind to many facts.

    • dchayden

      As this was an “interview” and not a “debate,” as you put it, I am curious…why don’t you tell us the underlying issues that effect the Israelis and the Palestinians, and how they differ from Gerald Celente’s ? Can you please also state the so called “facts” that he is said to be blind to, and back them up with something legitimate. Thank you

    • Allen

      On the contrary, I find Gerald right on the spot and Greg rather unprofessional in attacking the “facts” he was discussing. The pro Israel bias and propaganda is so deep and encompassing in this country that even the interviewer who host many unconventional guests is brainwashed . However, thank you Greg for interviewing such a clear eyed intellectual in your site.

      • Michael Gottlieb

        “Clear-eyed intellectual”? You must be joking! Gerald Celente has revealed his true colors as a Hamas apologist. How can we trust anything he says?

        • Allen

          Yes. Clear Eyed Individual! The link you shared is sound bites taken out of context for Palestinians or usual talking heads in MSM who have subjugated their country’s (USA) future to a foreign one (Israel).
          I would like to know how would we respond if foreign people came, took our land, killed and humiliated us, put us in refugee camps or in ghettos that are blockated. Would we just accept our faith and be docile?
          You think Hamas is bad. A Pentagon official just said this week that if Hamas is toppled, ISIS will take its place.
          Israel is pulling this country down and our leaders are bought and paid for by AIPAC. Without Israel, this country and the entire world would be much better off.

        thank you Allen this is so obvious but you are of coarse spot on sir

    • Collateral Damage

      I have been studying. This is what I have found:

      As of 2014; the men, women and children living in the Gaza Strip numbered around 1.82 million. The Gaza strip is a sliver of land 25 miles long by 3 to 7 miles wide bordered by Israel on two sides, Egypt on the third and the Mediterranean sea on the fourth. Israel and Egypt have imposed a strict economic blockade on the people living in this tiny strip of land via all land and water routes since 2007. For the past 7 years, the people cannot leave and their economic livelihood has been severely restricted.

      In December 2009, Egypt started, with help from the US, the building of an Egypt–Gaza barrier along the Gaza border, consisting of a steel wall. On 5 July 2013, in the wake of Islamist attacks on security forces in the Sinai following the overthrow of Mohamed Morsi, the border crossing was closed for several days by the Egyptian Army. It was later reopened for four hours each day. After the August 14th clashes, the border crossing was closed ‘indefinitely’. The blockade of the Gaza Strip refers to a land, air, and sea blockade on the Gaza Strip by Egypt and Israel from 2007 to present (July 2014).

      As reported by Deutsche Welle Journal today, “On Tuesday, July 29th Israel unleashed it’s heaviest bombardment yet in the three week offensive… Yesterday there was one single power plant in Gaza which produced just enough power for only three hours of electricity per day. Today the power plant was consumed in flames. The water supply in Gaza was secured by this power plant since the water was provided via pumps which ran/run on electricity.” This power plant supplied electricity for hospitals, schools, retirement homes and potable water supply. Gaza is positioned in an arid climate, with dry h0t summers subject to drought. People need water to survive, and they cannot drink sea water.

      I am tired of the blame game! “There but for the Grace of God, Go I.” Remember, any one of us (or you) could have been shafted with the bad luck to have been born onto that tiny strip of land. We weren’t born here, in the U.S., because we were better then them, we just got lucky.

      We are witnessing, and are party to (through our own inaction), the creation and perpetuation of a veritable ‘hell on earth’. And all we can seem to do is argue over who’s fault it is.

      I see you, us, on this Forum, as well meaning, decent, and thoughtful people; but when all WE can do is Argue about who is to blame, I really wonder why God wasted his time with us anyway.
