Trend Alert” The Trend has Begun! – “Off With Their Heads 2.0” By Gerald Celente

Celente_Gerald Kingston, NY – We warned it would happen and it happened as we warned.  “Off with their heads! Off with their heads!” chanted the angry mob as they attacked the Royal Rolls Royce carrying Prince Charles and his wife Camilla. 

“Off With Their Heads 2.0” read the headline of our Autumn Trends Journal (10 October 2010 – Click here) predicting the outpouring of outrage that would accompany the harsh austerity measures inflicted upon the general public, while governments doled out generous bailouts and rescue packages for bankers and financiers.

“Since the onset of the Greatest Recession, I’ve been informing readers to expect uncontrolled unrest that would roil markets and destabilize governments,” said Gerald Celente, publisher of the Trends Journal.  “When people lose everything and they have nothing left to lose, they lose it.”

According to Celente, the spontaneous attack on the Royal couple was the first salvo in what promises to be a long war between the people and the ruling classes.  “Anyone questioning the intensity of the people’s seething anger is either out of touch or in denial,” said Celente, noting that this was the worst show of violence directed towards the Royals since the days of Irish/English hostilities.   

In this case, the Royals offered a convenient symbolic target for the young protestors, a new generation that has come face-to-face with a future of downward mobility.  It wasn’t only that they would have to pay three times the tuition for a degree that no longer guaranteed them a decent job, it was rage against the machine – a rigged system that paved the way for the privileged and punished the prols.
Celente has also predicted that all the Kings and Queens of Commerce – along with Presidents, Prime Ministers, top level bureaucrats and elected officials – will soon be hearing the same chant of “Off with their heads!” 

While the public was being punished with austerity measures, the “too big to fail” bankers, hedge fund hustlers and Wall Street high rollers, blamed for creating conditions necessitating austerity by making the biggest, most crooked and worst of financial gambles – were rewarded with a king’s ransom:

Wall Street Sees Record Revenue in ’09-10 Recovery From Bailout

Dec. 13 (Bloomberg) – Wall Street’s biggest banks, rebounding after a government bailout, are set to   complete their best two years in investment banking and trading, buoyed by 2010 results likely to be the second-highest ever.

This profit surge comes after the five largest investment banks – Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Citigroup, and Morgan Stanley – took a combined $135 billion in TARP money and borrowed billions more from the Federal Reserve’s emergency-lending facilities, while also benefiting from low interest rates and the Fed’s purchases of fixed-income securities.

Trend Forecast: The media has not connected the dots: a new class warfare has begun.  The attack upon the Royals exemplified the pent-up hatred building among a population that can no longer be cajoled into believing sacrifices to further enrich the über-rich are in the best interest of their nation.  

At the onset of the Great Recession, many bought the argument that if the biggest banks and businesses were not bailed out, the entire financial system would collapse.  Now faced with the irrefutable evidence of record corporate profits, billions in bonuses and bailout windfalls, the people will no longer grin and bear it.  

As economic conditions continue to deteriorate in Europe and the U.S., the uprisings will grow larger, more frequent, more organized and more ferocious.  In response, government crackdowns will be harsher and more violent.  As the New Year unfolds, the stage is set for incendiary acts that will be committed by one side or the other, escalating the conflict into prolonged battles. 

Governments will declare that hooligans, anarchists, militants and foreign agents are responsible for the unrest, and the press will swear to it.  What will be painted as assaults on capitalism and the free enterprise system could more accurately be described as acts of self defense; a battle between the growing number of “have nots” vs. the “haves” that keep taking even more than they had before.

With a 30-year track record to prove it, no one has a more accurate inside scoop on the crucial trends shaping our future than Trends Journal Publisher, Gerald Celente.

  1. that’s nice Gerry…but here is the more likly scenario
    with gold at almost 1400 an ounce it pays no dividend
    and other than its intrinsic value provides no income
    to the holder..as US interest rates go up, investors
    particularly retirees will flock to US treasuries and
    FDIC cd’s which will pay 4-5 and even 6% by the end
    of next year…as the economy recovers people will
    feel more comfortable investing in the stock market
    ( i don’t and I am not reccomending it) but the net
    result of the restoration of confidence will be
    the fall of gold…and a return to normalcy..
    there may be bumps along the way but what you are
    seeing in europe is hardly revolution gerry…its a bunch of spoiled soicialists and students squawking
    at the necessary measures being taken by their governments to avoid a financial meltdown..germany
    england and france will continue to grow their
    economies..spain , portugal greece and ireland will
    have to take steps to avoid default…but in any
    event this is not catastrophic …its what happens
    from time to time in a market economy which is now
    global…thsoe who follow your advice will be taking
    a huge risk that you and only you are right…that;s
    a risk that is ill advised
