Recently by Gerald Celente: Neo-Survivalism
Many people in America are still holding on to “hope and change” that the Obama administration would save them and the world from a devastating financial collapse. Gerald Celente has called out to the American people to stop believing in hope and change and immediately get into survival mode. As there is no recovery going on in the US (despite everything that the government are telling the people), many economic analysts predict that the American Empire is going to collapse very soon, and the collapse will be as severe as the Zimbabwean collapse. Another forecast say that America is turning into a third world nation, some even mentioned it will become as bad as the Indonesian economy under Soeharto.
There are so much that we can learn from people who understand the economy, are economic analysts and/or are successful business people themselves, such as Robert Kiyosaki, Peter Schiff, Jim Rogers, Gerald Celente and others, I have listed the 7 sins of the American government that has caused them to fall into a great collapse. Here they are
Deadliest Sin #1 — Giving Authority and Sovereignty of America into the Hands of Banks and Money
Although you may believe all you want that Obama is a good man and a good President, unfortunately he is not the one who is running the country. Politicians and the government are not the ones ruling over America, it is the bank and money.
The only American President who fought for the sovereignty of America from the enslavement of banks is President Andrew Jackson (1829—1937), the (officially recognized) 7th president of the United States. When he ran the campaign for his second term in office, his slogan was, “Jackson and No Bank!”
This is a reference to his plan to take over the American money system so that banks would operate for the benefit of the American people and not for the profit of a few ultra rich men who was controlling the money supply and the banking system at the time.
When he was asked what his greatest achievement was, Andrew Jackson stated, “I killed the bank!” He was referring to his achievement to remove the government’s deposits from the Second Bank of the United States, a bank controlled by the few ultra rich, greedy men, and instead deposited them into banks directed by democratic bankers — banks who would only operate for the benefit of the people.
However, the ultra rich, controlling the money supply and the banking system in the United States, managed to set up their third “central bank” where they can control the banking and money system of the US in 1913, the Federal Reserve. This was under President Woodrow Wilson. After signing the Federal Reserve into its existence, he said,
“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men..”
Deadliest Sin #2 — Taking the US Dollar off the Gold Standard
In 1971, without consulting his state department or the international monetary system, the US President at the time, Richard Nixon, took the greenback off the gold standard. At the time, the US was importing more than it was exporting due to the costly Vietnam war. It was also the time when the economy was growing and they had to import more and more oil. The US started to have difficulties in paying bills in gold. Nixon decided to take the US dollar off the gold standard and made it illegal for people to directly exchange dollars for gold. By doing this, the US could print their way out of debt simply by printing money as much as they wanted and needed without being backed by gold. Because of this, today’s inflation started to take off.
