With 2009 only just begun, it is utterly disheartening to bear witness to the further crumbling of our economy and nation as a whole at the hands of the plutocrats and central banking criminals. The fervor of the past election cycle has already become mired in cynicism; standard operating procedure for a Republic in decline. Most unfortunate however, is that according to analysis by Gerald Celente and “The Trends Research Institute“, it is only going to get much much worse from this point moving forward.
Gerald Celente, for those not familiar, is head of “The Trends Research Institute” based out of New York. His organization has correctly forecast a mind boggling number of world events all prior to their actual occurrence. Some of the more notable events were the collapse of the former Soviet Union, the tech-bubble collapse, the War in Iraq, the then emerging housing crisis, and the “Economic Panic of ’08″.
Published in the institute’s “Top Trends of 2009″, the report forecasts the complete and utter collapse of the United States economy, followed by the beginning of the second American Revolution, quote:
“It is a matter of historical fact: When people are homeless, helpless, desperate, jobless and hungry, sooner or later they will rebel. And it won’t be any different in America.”

My default reaction to such statements is an immediate desire to cast them off as mere hyperbole, wild conspiracy, or publicity. While it most certainly would be instantaneously convenient to jettison such notions and the weighty ramifications therein, any attempt at doing such conjures up images from “The Ants and the Grasshopper” the Aesop fable my Grandmother use to read to me as a child.
For those of us who choose to delve past the soundbite constraints of the old media, it is not hard to see that the problems our Republic faces cannot be cured or swept under the rug with the premiere of another season of “American Idol”. This ponzai scheme of fractional reserve banking is tumbling. The talking heads who in the beginning of 2008 were still exuberantly advising investors to buy financial stocks like Bear Sterns, Merrill Lynch, and Goldman Sachs have finally been exposed as nothing more than charlatans and shills for the the criminals on Wall Street.2
Fellow readers, the same batch of Keynesian sycophants who kept condescendingly telling us the bailout was far too complex for “average people” to grasp are the same group of hacks who now instruct the masses that President-Elect Obama will offer Americans a miraculous salvation via the hands of even bigger government and continued deficit spending.
Honestly, there is no fix to the card game so long perpetuated against us and our posterity. The collapse is entering free fall status and will only be exacerbated by the impending default of commercial real-estate mortgages. My suggestion; educate your family and friends, buy food and toiletries such as razors and soap. Secure the things your family will need eighteen months from now, not iPods, BlueRay DVD players, plasma televisions, et al. If you have children, heed the advice of Peter Schiff, purchase the shoes and the clothes they will need next year – now, before the Dollar devalues.
If you can, also consider buying Silver. Whereas Gold is already out of reach for many, Silver is still attainable at the current approximate rate of $10 per ounce. As the paper currency RESERVE NOTES become little more than kindling for a fire3, coupled with a loss in demand for industrial Silver due to the implosion of electronic and appliance sales, Silver will continue to rise higher against the Dollar for at least the next twelve to eighteen months.
Whatever you do, just make sure you do something, this is not a drill. Inaction, inattention, ignorance is no longer an option. Unless of course you fancy becoming the grasshopper4.
