Gerald Celente: The Empire is Collapsing

Trends Forecaster Gerald Celente on how the American Empire is Collapsing from within:

“If things are not fixed and quick : “The cities are going to look like Dodge City. They’re going to be uncontrollable. You’re going to have gangs in control, motorcycle marauders. You’re not going to have enough police or federalis, just like Mexico, to control the situation.New York City looks like Mexico City. If you have money or they think you’re going to have money, you’re going to be a target for a kidnapping. We’re going to see major cities look like Calcutta.

There is going to be the homeless, panhandlers, hookers.we are going to see petty thieves and we’re going to see pick-pockets. And the other thing, even these — even these gated communities won’t be safe, because you’re going to see criminality — you’re going to see gangs like you’ve never seen before. Listen, when people have nothing left to lose, and they’ve lost everything, they lose it. And now, you have a society — we’re a dissenting society. I mean, you look at high school graduation rates — you have under 50 percent in major cities.”

Full interview below:


  1. If you have money or they think you’re going to have money, you’re going to be a target for a kidnapping.

    So, how will our stacks of Silver serve us then?  We will be stuck in a vicious circle, in than money is needed in order to purchase what one needs (assuming it is still available), but once it is known that you have money they will come after you to take it.

    This brings up the point that prepping for what may lay ahead is more than just stacking shiny discs.  Stacking lead, food, and other mundane necessities of daily life like toothpaste, TP and soap may also be prudent.

  2. Mammoth you are exactly right.. Also make plans to get out of the city and burbs. Do you have a close friend or family with a ranch or farm? atleast 4 hours drive from a major city. Do you have nonhybrid seeds? Water source, alternate electricity? There are tons of things to think about when prepping. 

  3. Yeah I’ve probably gone overboard on the self defense aspects of prepping to the detriment of other areas, but I think the government is a greater threat than the sheeple given all the nefarious shit they have done/are doing (ie: 911, FEMA camps, etc). Definitely need food, water, alternative energy, fuel, etc… The government thinks they can issue a king’s decree (ie: National Defense Resources Preparedness EO) and simply take your shit as they see fit when TSHTF. Sounds good for them on paper, but when peoples lives are at stake and they’ve have the foresight to protect themselves via preparation, they’re not going to give anything up so easily.

  4. There are many scenarios worth planning for.  The hardest is the total collapse of society.  At this time, what are the chances of a total collapse?  I would opine not very good.  That does not mean the advent of a black swan event that catapults us to that point. 

    So how to plan and what to plan for.  I think there are basic categories, much like Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. Physiological overall.  Do I have sufficient of all life sustaining needs for an extended period of time.  It is this need that will drive people out of the city.  They could care less about our shiny stacks.  They want food and water.

    Next is security.  How are you going to keep from being killed?  Do you have a defensible position with plenty of defensive weapons and personnel trained in how to use them? 

    If you have these needs met and you survive, everything else will be gravy. 

  5. Water is always a difficult thing to store (in mass quantities).  There are portable water filters that can make abundant sources of water drinkable, such as the Swiss-made Katadyn Pocket Filter.  This product, which sells for about US$ 300, contains silver within the filter cartridge, and therefore is able to achieve 13,000 gallons of filtering capacity, and comes with a 20-yr warranty.  Yet it only weighs 20 Oz.  That’s just 2.3 cents per gallon of unit cost.

    Silver’s wonders shine again!

  6. Folks if is possible for you


    Get out & away from the cities

  7. Plebian – there’s also “collodial silver” which can be made with a small power supply, distilled water and .999 pure silver wire. I’ve been reading a lot about it lately and the healing powers of silver are truly magical.

  8. Hello guys and gals,

    Finally got my login to work. Thanks Bull for the help!
    Regarding a collapse, remember, you can only go it alone for so long. Although it’s difficult, you need to surround yourselves with like minded people. Safety in numbers, if you will. Be careful whom you tell what, because surely there will be those that want to “sponge” when SHTF.
    Remember, our grandparents did just fine making their own way and so will we. Ordinary Joe said “everything else will be gravy”. I agree! Due diligence, careful planning, common sense, a good garden and a few chickens will go a long way. I like gravy. A little bacon grease heated, couple of tablespoons of flour stirred in until dissolved, add milk slowly while stirring and “damn! spoon over a biscuit, toast or light bread.
    Like the new site DOC.
    2 OZ.
  9. silverstax – I think you should be using at least .9999 pure wire, because some of the other impurities that can occur are as highly undesirable as the silver is desirable in colloidal form.   Recently heard of this process, which seems like an optimal choice if they provide a wire product:

  10. Thank God I have family outside of the US & in a country that’s not part of the Euro Zone either.

    If things get as bad as these guys are talking, city dwellers are gonna be F%#@ed !!

    I just hope I can get out of the country if & when I need to…
