The following is from David Icke’s newsletter. At David Wilcock’s recent Melbourne talk he told us that he doesn’t believe in Icke’s shape-shifting reptiles. But he did tell us that mass arrests were about the occur among the NWO elite, and that Wilcock himself would be the spokesman. And now Icke is telling us that the Global Cabal (according to Wilcock it is a 134-nation alliance of countries) aren’t about to be arrested, as per Benjamin Fulford and Wilcock. Strange since most people would think both were rubbish!
… Fulford says that something called the ‘Gnostic Illuminati’ and the ‘White Dragon Society’ are going to arrest the leaders of the Global Cabal and release funds to end world poverty. They have given the Cabal a deadline (actually deadline after deadline after deadline) to give themselves up or else. But they never do and there is never any ‘or else’. Fulford wrote in …
Nobody knows if something terrible will happen this year. I certainly don’t – all I say is that with the Mayan calendar ending in 2012, it makes it a year that a global cataclysm is more likely to occur (the Mayans may have known something we don’t). The correct response is to make practical preparations, just in case. Incorrect responses include:
not paying taxes
not completing schooling
reckless or risky activities
incurring debts you cannot repay
Now don’t get me wrong – people do these things anyway. And each can be done as a response to 2012 as long as you are careful. For example, in Australia if someone like me with a good tax department relationship fails to pay taxes one year, I can probably get away with it, or at least be paying off those taxes beyond 2012.
If 2012 has proven you are incompatible with your partner on an on-going basis, that’s …
The peak-to-trough fall in house prices in the 1930s Depression was 31 per cent – and prices took 19 years to recover after that downturn.
The current Global Financial Crisis has surpassed that decline, with a record 33%. But ultimately, whichever way you look at it, humans have collectively brought this upon themselves. Imagine what would happen to house prices if a global disaster meant there were suddenly many fewer people?
There are many theories for what caused the Great Depression, but I found this interesting:
There is evidence lack of demand for housing, and housing loans, started in 1926 and dropping precipitously in the U.S. in early 1929. Lack of demand was partly due to due to a decrease in population growth. This was the result of fewer families being formed, a declining birth rate after 1910, reduced immigration and deaths during WWI, the 1918 flu, and …
For many 2012ers economics is a boring topic. Unless you have achieved the dream of 100% self-sufficiency, any decline in the economy will affect you. And that could range from hardship to starvation.
In the current economic climate there are three factors that put businesses at risk:
high debt levels
just-in-time supply chains
High debts leave little room for unexpected events, such as natural disasters. Volcanic ash can drive airlines to bankruptcy, simply because they couldn’t fly some routes for a while.
Just-in-time supply chains are the equivalent of people living from hand to mouth. No stockpiles of supplies, totally dependent on others. Where that most affects you and I is supermarkets. Without their supply chain, supermarket shelves would be empty after just three days of regular purchasing, or less than one day if people learned of the problem and made panic purchases.
Globalization means that disasters far away can affect us. For example, the recent …
My preference is for doom days that an ancient culture could have predicted, no matter how remote the possibility. But I still leave no stone unturned, so let’s look at the global economy, prompted by this article:
New Agers have been misinterpreting the Mayan calendar for years. The earth will not spin into a black hole or collide with Planet X on Dec. 21, 2012, as popularly predicted.
There won’t be deadly solar flares. There won’t be any more earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes or tornadoes than usual. There won’t even be some fanciful global spiritual awakening, as often imagined. This is not what the Mayans were talking about.
The pre-Columbian, Mesoamerican civilization is renowned for its advanced mathematics.
…Within a year, every major investment bank in the world was blowing up, and the little people all over the planet were forced to fund an unprecedented intervention to save bankers from a Mayan-style extinction.
…these volatile swings aren’t the …
I don’t usually cover politics and finance here, but we have a very interesting piece of audio… Gerard Celente is a well known futurist and forecaster. It just so happens (he claims) that his savings have been lost due to the collapse of MF Global, in which the company run by Jon Corzine misplaced close to a billion dollars.
It’s interesting that an acclaimed futurist, who sensibly was investing in gold, invested with the wrong people… but that’s just a stark reminder that due diligence is a necessity.
Listen, and think about the possibility of this happening to you. Under the mattress has never seemed more appealing!
Everything about this story suggests that it is true, from the photos on their website ( gold-to-go.com ) to the news on CNBC.com:
A German firm that installs and manages gold vending machines aims to introduce them into the United States this year as it expands rapidly to take advantage of demand for bullion in times of economic uncertainty.
Yep, just insert your cash or credit card and it will dispense “small bars—including 1 gram, 5 gram, 10 gram and 1 ounce units—as well as coins such as South African Krugerrands, Australian Kangaroos and the Canadian Maple Leaf.” Imagine the queue during a SHTF event!
Gerald Celente, the CEO of Trends Research Institute, has opinions about the future that should be listened to – just check out the quotes at the bottom of the article, and the list of things he has successfully predicted in the past.
Then consider this:
…is now forecasting revolution in America, food riots and tax rebellions – all within four years, while cautioning that putting food on the table will be a more pressing concern than buying Christmas gifts by 2012.
…Celente says that by 2012 America will become an undeveloped nation, that there will be a revolution marked by food riots, squatter rebellions, tax revolts and job marches, and that holidays will be more about obtaining food, not gifts
