Is America Headed for a Second Revolution?

In an interview with LewRockwell.com, Gerald Celente predicted $2,000 an ounce gold, a depression “the likes of which no one has ever seen before”, and a second American Revolution. Visit LewRockwell.com or click here to listen to the complete interview. Highlights appear below. Gerald has successfully predicted Black Monday, the fall of the Soviet Union, the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis, and the 2007-present subprime mortgage crisis.

GERALD CELENTE: So We’re looking at unemployment numbers that are going up to around 25%, to rival the Great Depression. And in many ways this coming depression is going to be much worse, because back then.. most people didn’t own homes, so they weren’t carrying insurance or paying property taxes. There was no such thing as a home equity loan and people didn’t have credit cards. So they weren’t burdened with over $14 trillion of debt. And back then we had budget surpluses and trade surpluses and now we have major deficits in each. $700 billion a year trade, $11.5 trillion total budget, and close to $1 trillion coming online this year, another deficit.

GC: So yeah, people are going to be in very dire straits. All these people that are getting fired, all these stores that are closing – Circuit City going bankrupt, KB Stores, Steve and Barry’s, Linens n Things – we’re seeing closings – Starbucks, Office Depot, the other day, announced 142 stores. Number one, where are these people that are being fired or laid off, where are they going to find jobs? And number two, who’s going to take all these vacant retail spaces and commercial spaces that are going to be left empty? The answer to both of those questions is nobody… So we’re looking at a melt-down, a catastrophe, the likes of which no one has ever seen before.

GC: To watch grown men grovel is a disgusting spectacle. And that’s all they do, when you’re in government. That’s how people get to the top – they suck their way to the top. And when they’re big enough, as they’re bringing back all these failures from the Clinton administration, they fail their way to the top.

On what you should keep in mind in the near future:

GC: Well what I would suggest they do is they don’t spend a dime that they don’t have, and also realize that their dollar might be worth dimes in the coming years because they’re creating a situation for hyperinflation, so we’re looking at gold to go to probably $2,000 an ounce.

LEW ROCKWELL: And the dollar plummeting?

GC: Yeah if they keep printing money, you’re creating hyperinflation, so you have deflation of product commodities where you have inflationary pressures on worthless currencies. They did it in the Weimar Republic, they’re doing it in Zimbabwe, and they’re going to do it again. Because that’s Obama’s only solution, is to create 2.5 million jobs by creating job work projects. So he’s printing more money, it’s not going to solve anything.

GC: The people that have caused the problem are now running the show… Wall Street is running Washington.

LR: Big banks got the government to create the Federal Reserve system for them, so now they’re reaping the rewards and they’re killing the rest of us…

GC: That’s exactly what’s going on. The too-big-to-fail are being saved, and the too-small-to-save are being drowned.

LR: Gerald, are we going to see riots in this country? Are we going to see tax revolts, as happened in the Great Depression?

GC: Yes, absolutely, we’re going to see revolution, and we expect it to happen… probably this year we’ll start seeing some of it.

LR: So what do you think the upshot of that will be? Will they just suppress it? Is that why they’re bringing the troops home? [see also this article]

GC: Well they’re going to try to, obviously, and there is all this talk about opening up these detention centers and hiring the goon squads – the Blackwaters and the rest of them – to run them. So these are realities that are going on as we speak. And whether they keep saying that they’re opening up these detention centers in the event of migrant problems, but of course it’s much bigger than that. It’s under the Department of Homeland Security, and KBR – the engineering and construction subsidy of Haliburton – have been awarded a half a billion dollar, one year base period, to get these national emergency / national disaster centers up and running. So yeah, it’s in the cards, they know what’s going on. And we’re really in a period of off-with-their-heads. It’s going to be the people against the politicians, the new kings and queens of commerce, as well.

GC: It’s a fight against a totalitarian government. You can call it “communist” when a state-owned monopoly runs everything, or you can call it “fascist” or you can call it “socialist” – but the one thing you cannot call it is “free-market enterprise”. So yeah, there are going to be rebellions, and, you know, things will change for the better if we break up these criminal governments that are in place right now.

  1. The only way to wake up the people is to start the revolution. Unfortuantly as long as the average joe has sports to watch they could give a shit about anything else. It is a sad day when people don’t care about the freedoms anymore. I’m not a radicial thinker, but come on people the evidence is EVERYWHERE! Wake the FUCK UP!!!

  2. you what we say up here LETS GET IT ON

    • Revolution you ask? I’m all for it. I had written a blog when I first did my space, Nathan Horn, and I wrote much of what was on my mind. Revolution?, :) Count this unemployed, uninsured, fiance in. :
      I’M MAD AS ALL HELL!! YES YOU’VE HEARD ME. ESPECIALLY OF THAT OF MY GENERATION. I QUESTION ANY REAL INTEREST, CONCERNS, OR IDEAS OF WHAT’S ACTUALLY GOIN ON IN “OUR” WORLD. :( HEY, THERE’S BRITTANY, PARIS, REAL WORLD AND VARIOUS BULLSHIT REALITY T.V. SHOWS TO HELP US STAY FOCUSSED TO WHAT’S REALLY FUCKIN IMPORTANT RIGHT?? HAHA I’M SORRY IF I’VE OFFENDED ANYONE, BUT WHO CARES! LIKE MY MAN OZZY SAID IN 1981, “THE MEDIA SELLS IT AND YOU LIVE THE ROLE!!” BOY WAS THAT EVER TRUE. 26 YEARS AGO AND FROM WHAT I’VE STUDIED, READ, AND OBSERVED, SAME OL’ SHIT. BUT HEY, I ALMOST FORGOT ABOUT OUR HARD WORKING ATHLETES, ENTERTAINERS, CEO’S, POLITICIANS; AS WELL AS, COUNTLESS OTHER FOLKS WHO DESERVE YET MORE “PRAISE” AND ACKNOWLEDGMENTS. WHAT IF IN AMERICA, WE SET A DATE FOR A NATIONAL “SICKDAY” OF FEELING F.A.T.S. ( FUCK ALL THIS SHIT)
      OR BETTER YET, LETS ALL CALL IN AND THEN MARCH AND PROTEST THE WAR. or should I say….INVOLVEMENT? HELL, LET’S JUST ALL GET TOGETHER AND PROTESTS ALL KINDS OF SHIT!!!!! WAR, POLITICS, GREED, RACISM, ADDICTIONS, ETC. GET IT ALL OUTTA THE WAY. BUT I STILL WOULDN’T FEEL CONFIDENT IN MOST/ALL THA POOH BUTTS OUT THERE. HAHAHAHA YES, I’M LAUGHING AT YA. PEOPLE IN GENERAL ARE FLAT OUT SCARED AND CHICKEN SHIT. WE ARE “MAKING, THE, DO-NUTS”!!!! :) TEXTBOOK MOTHER FUCKERS. SO MANY PEOPLE WHO CAN’T VENTURE TO STEP OUTSIDE THE, 1-INCH BOX. SO MANY CLOSED-MINDED MUTHA FUCKAS CONTINUALLY CO-SIGN THE,”IMPORTANT, WEALTHY, POWERFUL, ETC.” BULLSHIT!!!! :( OUCH!!! I AM SINGLE, AGAIN, UNFORTUNATELY, AND I WONDER MANY TIMES IF MY GENERATION WILL DO ANY BETTER. I DON’T HAVE A WHOLE LOT OF CONFIDENCE IN MY PARENTS’ GENERATION, SO HOW IN GOD’S NAME DO I EXPECT MINE TO DO MUCH BETTER???? HAHA I GUESS THAT’S WHY I DECIDED TO DO THIS. MAYBE I CAN HELP JUMP-START A NEW KIND OF MOVEMENT TO HELP BRING PEOPLE BACK TO POSSIBLY BECOMMING COMMUNITIES AGAIN. HOW MANY NEIGHBORS AND COMMON STRANGERS DO YOU CONVERSE, NOT CONVERSATE! WITH OR TAKE TIME TO LEARN A BIT ABOUT? I HAVE MY OWN QUOTE THAT I’VE BEEN USING FOR YEARS…………. ” IF YOU DON’T KNOW OR UNDERSTAND AND UN-WILLING TO KNOW AND UNDERSTAND, THEN YOU WILL NEVER KNOW AND UNDERSTAND UNTIL YOU TIP TOE OVER THAT 1-INCH BOX”. THERE IS SO MUCH MORE I CAN DISCUSS HERE, BUT I JUST WANT TO GET MY MESSAGE, ALTHOUGH BRIEF TO ME, TO THOSE INDIVIDUALS WHO WILL TAKE THE TIME TO READ THIS AND GET OUTSIDE THE BOX. MANY JUST NEED MORE SUPPORT THAN OTHERS, BUT WHEN ENOUGH PEOPLE CAME TOGETHER TO SPEAK OUT AND VOICE HIS OR HER OPINION, WE’D END UP SEEING SHIT START TO CHANGE. LIKE JOHN MAYER SAID IN HIS SONG…….WAITIN FOR THE WORLD TO CHANGE. MATCH BOX 20 SINGIN BOUT “LET’S SEE HOW FAR WE’VE COME!!” DO YOU BELIEVE THE WORLD IS BURNIN TO THE GROUND????? HELL, I SEE THE WORLD SINKIN TO THE OCEAN. HAHAHA HEY, JUST SING ZEPPELIN’S SONG, OCEAN. :) HAHA ” HOW MUCH IS ENOUGH? , AND WHEN DOES IT BECOME ENOUGH??? . ALL I KNOW IS THAT THERE IS AN ALARMING GAP WIDENING BETWEEN THOSE IN POWER, WEALTH AND MONEY AND THOSE IN THE MIDDLE AND LOWER CLASS. :0 OHHH SHIT!! WE’LL JUST SEE HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE GAME TO SEE ABOUT MAKING ANY “REAL” IMPORTANT CHANGES IN OUR COUNTRY!!!

  3. The Government doesn’t work anymore. A revolution is what we need to keep this country intact. We need to make sacrifices to return America to it’s former glory.

  4. peace onley works on a 2 way street. and they made it into a autobond were we think peace works and they use Gurilla tactics on the peps at home. get past the lable terrorist when there’s terrorist peractice in every walk of life inculdeing your own.

  5. YOU CAN TALK AND TALK ALL YOU WANT,,,THATS OUR WHOLE FUCKIN PROBLEM FRIENDS,,,WE TALK TO DAMN MUCH AND GET NOWHERE,,WHEN ARE WE GOING TO DO SOMETHING…HOW DO WE UNITE…WHO IS GOING TO LEAD US THREW THIS

  6. Beware of the warning signs such as taking our retirement funds and other financial assets. Food and fuel will also be a control method, watch for sudden and unexpected price swings.Finally they will “Invent” a domestic terrorist group and use that as the final excuse to throw out the Constitution. Then they will come for our guns, politely at first then they will pit neighbor against Neighbor.

  7. Without a revolution
    Americans are history!
