The man who predicted the 1987 stock market crash and the fall of the Soviet Union is now forecasting revolution in America, food riots and tax rebellions - all within four years, while cautioning that putting food on the table will be a more pressing concern than buying Christmas gifts by 2012.

Gerald Celente, the CEO of Trends Research Institute, is renowned for his accuracy in predicting future world and economic events, which will send a chill down your spine considering what he told Fox News this week.

Celente says that by 2012 America will become an undeveloped nation, that there will be a revolution marked by food riots, squatter rebellions, tax revolts and job marches, and that holidays will be more about obtaining food, not gifts.

"We're going to see the end of the retail Christmas....we're going to see a fundamental shift take place....putting food on the table is going to be more important that putting gifts under the Christmas tree," said Celente, adding that the situation would be "worse than the great depression".

"America's going to go through a transition the likes of which no one is prepared for," said Celente, noting that people's refusal to acknowledge that America was even in a recession highlights how big a problem denial is in being ready for the true scale of the crisis.

Celente, who successfully predicted the 1997 Asian Currency Crisis, the subprime mortgage collapse and the massive devaluation of the U.S. dollar, told UPI in November last year that the following year would be known as "The Panic of 2008," adding that "giants (would) tumble to their deaths," which is exactly what we have witnessed with the collapse of Lehman
Brothers, Bear Stearns and others. He also said that the dollar would eventually be devalued by as much as 90 percent.

The prospect of revolution was a concept echoed by a British Ministry of Defence report last year, which predicted that within 30 years, the growing gap between the super rich and the middle class, along with an urban underclass threatening social order would mean, "The world's middle classes might unite, using access to knowledge, resources and skills to shape
transnational processes in their own class interest," and that, "The middle classes could become a revolutionary class."

In a separate recent interview, Celente went further on the subject of revolution in America."There will be a revolution in this country," he said. "It's not going to come yet, but it's going to come down the line and we're going to see a third party and this was the catalyst for it: the takeover of Washington, D. C., in broad daylight by Wall Street in this bloodless coup. And it will happen as conditions continue to worsen."

"The first thing to do is organize with tax revolts. That's going to be the big one because people can't afford to pay more school tax, property tax, any kind of tax. You're going to start seeing those kinds of protests start to develop."

"It's going to be very bleak. Very sad. And there is going to be a lot of homeless, the likes of which we have never seen before. Tent cities are already sprouting up around the country and we're going to see many more."

"We're going to start seeing huge areas of vacant real estate and squatters living in them as well. It's going to be a picture the likes of which Americans are not going to be used to. It's going to come as a shock and with it, there's going to be a lot of crime. And the crime is going to be a lot worse than it was before because in the last 1929 Depression, people's minds weren't wrecked on all these modern drugs - over-the-counter drugs, or crystal meth or whatever it might be. So, you have a huge underclass of very desperate people with their minds chemically blown beyond anybody's comprehension."

The George Washington blog has compiled a list of quotes attesting to Celente's accuracy as a trend forecaster.

"The Trends Research Institute is the Standard and Poors of Popular Culture." - The Los Angeles Times

"If Nostradamus were alive today, he'd have a hard time keeping up with Gerald Celente."- New York Post

So there you have it - hardly a nutjob conspiracy theorist blowhard now is he? The price of not heeding his warnings will be far greater than the cost of preparing for the future now.

So I guess its going to be like Fallout New Vegas, but without the radiation and mutants. I guess small towns like the one I live in are going to have to build scrap metal walls to prevent druggy raiders from breaking in... Like New Vegas protecting itself from the Fiends. Its so strange, how all those post-apocalyptic survival movies are going to come true... as if we knew it was going to happen, but never realized it... Wierd

I have a small arsenal, very small. And yes, I do plan on ambushing others and stealing what they have stockpiled. Me and my gang (south texan mexicanos and anglos, you dont need to know the name) have plans already setup for this. A whole section of our City is going to be ours and those who do not follow our simple laws will be massacred. The police can join us and take orders or be murdered. Smart of you to prepare for these things as we prefer easy targets.

Front and center in facilitating the upcoming turmoil and civil strife will be Hussein Obama, the most divisive farce to ever reside in the formerly White House. We are already at the tipping point: The non-productive citizens outnumber the productive. I say bring it on. It's time the welfare maggots and minorities learn a hard lesson about f'ing with those who feed them.

Put down the Bible, save it for the times you are alone and need spiritual guidance. This isn't about GOD ... this is about a boatload of con artist who've ripped off the American populace better than any other regime in history? WHY? They USED the Bible as a means to an end ---- be good Christians, pay your taxes and let us, those you've so willingly trusted to do the right thing .. RIP YOU OFF TIL YOU ARE BLIND, BLEEDING AND NAKED. Stock up ... food, clothing, if you live where its cold, things to keep you warm and ammo. Guns aren't necesssarily going to be used against the powerful, the military, etc ... hell, half o the military is already on foodstamps .... it will be to take out the ones who did not listen and are not prepared and WILL kill YOU and YOURS to get what you've stockpiled. Don't think it cannot happen because "this is America." It ha happened before, and unfortunately because humans have the attention spans of gnats, it will again.

People are living in tents and abandoned homes. People are unemployed, and the labor statistics are not accurate because they do not reflect those who are unemployed >99 weeks. Inflation is noticed in smaller containers of food on market shelves. The price may be close to the same as before BUT the weight is less so the price is actually a lot more. On November 11th, someone tried to kill our President. Finally, Thanksgiving is in four days with Christmas right around the corner. I don't know of anyone who has extra money for presents, there are vacant seats at all of the Holiday Music Events, casino revenues are low, the only store with customers today was the grocery store, and a job is hard to find. I say the market totally crashes by April 14, 2012 to a DOW just under 5,000.

Messege from the blessed
13 Nov 2011
2012 will be just the beginning not the end, messege: satan has succeded in spreading everywhere the great apostasy, by means of his subtle work of seduction, which has brought many to be alienated from the truth of gospel to follow the fables of the new theological theories and take delight in evil and sin, sought after as an actual good.

well now that its nearly 2012 i dont see every one killing each other for food.Looks like Mr. Celente is....well an idiot. If January !st rolls around and everything around me blows up and all that is left is food that is about to be stolen by starving people....then I'll take back what I said. I cannot believe how stupid, insipid, and childish this article is.
Myke ^^ Dude your an idiot. If you can look around at this country and say nothings wrong your lying to yourself. Im in no way siding with some fortune teller but he's a lot closer then you think.
Paul We can already see the Wall Street sit-in as a form of squatter revolution. The death and destruction that US corporates have been spreading around the world for oil control will come back and hit US. The wheel always turns a full circle.

You are right I'm afraid America is over as we know it. The 60's 70's and 80's were great. Now at the present time everyone needs to realize that materialistic things will mean nothing. We need to learn to sacrifice and leave what's now behind. Educate the masses or the people and unite together to bring a change to this falling country. revolution eradicate the 1% - 5%

JeffO, you need to pick up your Bible again and re-read it...there will not be a "Rapture", millions of people around the world have been lied too about a Rapture. I used to be in the same boat, I too believed in the Rapture, I also got caught up in 2012 being the end of the world...this is all nonsense and a lie. Want real proof? go here worldtocome.org

People really need to prepare for what seems to be an inevitable disaster ahead of us. Need to build food storage, probably should get the hell out of big cities because when the food riots start, you're going to be killed for that food and whatever else you own. It would be good for us to be able to work together to create a new type of government to over take the corrupt one, not sure that would be easy but are there not brilliant people out there? I'm sure God will enlighten the right people to make the crucial steps we need. We already have insanely great technology that is hidden from most eyes, cars can run off HHO fuel which is basically like running off water, Magnetic engines can be made for home energy or your car engine. No gasoline needed people. The whole magnetic energy concept by itself can power ALL our energy needs and the HHO fuel is amazing as well. I'm tired of sitting back watching ourselves get raped by these power greedy individuals in high places, if you do your research about 911 and about the whole NWO agenda and what not, devaluation of the dollar, everything is going to shit and nobody seems to give a damn. All I can say is people need to wake up to the reality that we're in, it's like the matrix, everyone is blind to the true reality and there are the few that no what's really going on and fight against the corupt system. We need to change things for the better so we don't have senseless controlling laws, so that true criminals get punished and good innocent people walk. We should fight to keep our constitution alive, it was written by brilliant individuals who really know what they are talking about.

I feel a bloody revolution coming to america. One where all the major criminals like law enforcement officers, judges, da's politicians etc will be in millions of peoples gun, bow, machete etc sights and pay the ultimate price for all the crimes against the masses that they themselves were never prosecuted for. Their Godlike POWER will come to a bloody end and I for one will be glad when these devils are dead and in hell with their father satan.

I feel it is time for a change in government, our infrastructure is in anarchy, and democracy like communism does not work. Our government is just as corrupt as other foriegn governments are. When has it become popular to not listen to what the people want over want politicians want. Case and point the marijauna laws, and taxation on necessities. It's hard enough to make ends meet when i can't even afford to fill my refrigerator for the month. There will most definitly be a revolt, and if the rich, and politicians don't give in to what the middle and lower class wants they will be pushed out. We need to make a change now before it is to late.

Robin is right. The biggest shock of all won't be the collapse of the dollar. It will be millions of people having vanished all at once in an instant. It's the Rapture, it's real, & it's going to happen...hey, that's a prediction that's more accurate than Celente could give. Everyone get ready, be prepared, have your heart right with your Maker. Cause, once the Believers are out of here, THEN, things are REALLY going to get hairy around here. There's still opportunity for redemption, but it'll be better getting right on this side of the Tribulation rather than on the other side. All my best Fellow Earthlings:)

All human societal inventions, based on lies and oppresion, will not stand the test of time. All aspects of our false-realities are collapsing, all over the world, not just in the U.S. It is now time to embrace a higher understanding of the universe, and to simply allow the "dying old man of the past" to pass away. Money, has no reality of its own, anyways, and as a race we should forget about it. We never needed it to begin with. Let us insead focus on our communities, and what kind of fuel we will use in the future. Let us instead focus on education of our species, and to begin to integrate with the rest of the civilizations in the vast universe. Humans are such silly creatures, arguing to the death over trivial matters, that our minds created in the first place. As above, so below, love is all that really exists.

The comment by Frank Gifford posted on Dec. 5th 2008 ,stating that Celente missed big on the devaluation of the dollar is wrong. Celente was right on the money. The same year in September, the banks collapsed and were proped up by, turning the printer on to make more Fiat dollars. So the dollar actually fell 100%. It was a total collapsed. But, the American People will continue to not see what is happening until it is to late.

For real people. We will not starve unless the rest of the world does, because we are the bread basket of the world! If Starvation is rampant across the world then military force will rule. We have the most powerful military, and some say we spend more on the military than the whole world combined. Also do not forget our back budget, which at times has been about twenty percent of federal taxes paid. If the common American dies than the rest of the world is screwed. Hold on we will be fine, and the value of our money is in our heads. So just keep chanting it is high, lol. PS: when they feel on cashing in on the military tech from the black budget it will be worth our debt in war or no debt, because we win the war and refuse to pay. War World III is inevitable.

America will fall. Too much greed and corruption, too much debt. Ugly politics & clueless politicians. Other countries have become fed up with us. America has this image as the country of opportunities, the country of wealth. However, in the years to come that will be a much different story. In the near future, everyone will be on their own, money worthless and food scarce. Everyone better learn how to fend for themselves, because there is no way of reversing the damage our country has done.
