Americans Live in a Fascist State
Russia Today Interviews Gerald Celente
The merger of corporate and government powers in modern America
is plain and simple fascism, believes Gerald Celente, the founder
of the Trends Research Institute and publisher of Trends Journal.
Celente takes an in-depth look at what AIG and Goldman Sachs really
are and the people behind them; explains the policies of Obamas
administration, and the moral basis for a forthcoming new American
Id like to begin by talking about the Treasury department.
Theyve decided to extend bailout funds to a number of struggling
life insurance policies. This is in addition to the auto industry
and the banks. Do you think Americans are aware of whats going
G.C.: They know about it, its a new trend. America is going
from what used to be the major capitalistic country in the world
of free market a crusader into what Mussolini would
have called fascism: the merger of state and corporate powers. So
it is not socialism as people believe, it is socialisms egalitarianism.
Its not communism where the state controls monopolies
its fascism, plain and simple. The merger of corporate and
government powers. State-controlled capitalism is called fascism,
and fascism has come to America in broad daylight. But theyre
feeding them it in little bits and pieces. First AIG was too big
to fail. Mortgage companies Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were too
big to fail. Banks too big to fail and auto companies. And now we
give money to the people that make the auto parts. And now theres
talk about the technology companies, wanting their piece of the
action. The merger of state and government is called fascism. Take
it from Mussolini; he knew a thing or two about it.
RT: What can Americans do if they are opposed to the road that
government officials are bringing them down?
G.C.: The people dont really have a choice, there is no ballot
box. Im of Italian descent and Ive heard enough of mafia
stories for the rest of my life. If you want to look at a mafia,
you can call it a republican and democratic party. And if you want
to look at the two families, the heads of the mafia, all you have
to do is to look at the Bushes and the Clintons. Theyve been
running the show now for some 24 years. We heard about Obama who
is going to bring in change. A change you could believe
in if he is dumb, stupid and blind. Look who hes brought in
as his chief policy makers. Retreads from the old Clinton administration.
Its a two-headed one-party system. So its very difficult
for the people to vote in a new administration that isnt part
of the old one.
Can you tell me one thing that you like about President Obama?
G.C.: In the Trends Journal, the top trends of 2009, one
of our trends was that people are going to be putting out recession
gardens. And now as we see the Obamas, they are planting their
own garden, and that trend is taking hold. So he is doing that in
positive ways, hes bringing an element of dignity back to
society. Those are positives. But now let me look at whether its
true or the hypocrisy. So, they are talking about planting their
own gardens. And they are talking about buying local. Oh, all that
is wonderful, but on the other side of the coin they are pushing
genetically modified foods while theyre eating organic. So
its like let them eat Frankenfoods this
is the message. So I see hypocrisy at every level. When they show
me truth and justice, and the real American way then Ill
