    US is Gearing Up for Onrushing Economic Apocalypse

    America is hurling all of its effort into preparing for a September “apocalypse,” as economic forecasts are becoming more and more intimidating, RT columnist Robert Bridge wrote.

    According to Gallup's recently released US Economic Confidence Index rating, confidence in the US economy among Americans dropped to its lowest level in July. Nothing to be surprised about, considering that each and every economy analyst deems it duty to share predictions on the country's nearest future in a campfire scary story manner.

    It does seem like professional economists are competing in a think-of-the-most-dreadful-metaphor contest when describing what awaits global economy.

    The founder of Trends Research, who predicted the "panic of 2008," believes that soon we will witness the crash of a global stock market and predicts "the economic earthquake [that] will send reverberations around the world".

    "There's going to be panic on the streets from Wall Street to Shanghai, to the UK down to Brazil." Celente told King World News. "You're going to see one market after another begin to collapse."

    Analyst Larry Edelson took the fear to the next level as he even predicted the exact day the catastrophe begins, or, as he called it, a "rollercoaster ride through hell."

    "On October 7, 2015, the first economic super cycle since 1929 will trigger a global financial crisis of epic proportions." He said.

    "It will bring Europe, Japan and the United States to their knees, sending nearly one billion human beings on a roller-coaster ride through hell for the next five years. A ride like no generation has ever seen."

    Most of the experts agree that all the optimistic data like record earnings on Wall Street and a surging dollar is just disguising fundamental cracks, and the collapse of historic proportions will happen within few months, starting in the US.

    No wonder such forecasts, and there are dozens, from professional economists leave US and the world dizzy and shivering in fear and helplessness, just what one would probably feel if the actual apocalypse was coming.

    "There's enough going on in September to have me incredibly curious and concerned about what's going to happen." Canadian entrepreneur and editor of The Dollar Vigilante Jeff Berwick said in an interview with Gordon T. Long.

    Even if the concerns prove groundless, all that prepping and stockpiling won't hurt for at this point the US economy can use all the help it can get, Bridge wrote.

      If this happens, it will be a man-made crisis, deliberately created in order to officially conclude the New World Order and economic globalization. The elites have been dreaming about it for decades.

      How do I know that it is deliberate? Because the US and the major banks have been preparing for it since 2001 by collapsing the economy and implementing austerity, by building FEMA internment camps, by introducing draconian anti-democratic laws, by building a police state, by creating economic unions, by securing global military supremacy, by preparing to war, and by gaining control over global energy resources.

      These measures did not happen by coincident; they all serve the purpose of bringing about a huge global economic and social crisis that will enable the implementation of a new political reality. This is exactly why the UN and current international law have been ignored and practically retired.

      N.A. should discreetly withdraw from Europe, each country there should get back its identity, currency, independence, with the closure of their bases everywhere, they would save money,
      then they would realize at last that they are not threatened by anyone, least of all by Russia, then they should deliberately drop their high standards, stop wasting resources, act like spoilt children, eliminate their debts (national and otherwise), reverse certain Supreme Court decision taken recently, go back to traditional forms of marriage, and finally accept with humility that the world cannot/will not remain unipolar for ever: no it is already multi-polar, N.A. did a great job containing Communism, thank you from the heart, but now, adapt to this new situation : you will be respected for that. You ain' seen nothin' yet...

      I'll believe it when I see it. Not a single piece of evidence to back up this claim, it's just speculation!

      will.bov, I truly hope you are correct in that all of this is speculative fear-mongering. However there are some disturbing things happening in Norte America these days and they do serve to make people nervous.
      Take for instance the 'unemployment' figures which, like Canada do not include all the millions of people who, after a year of searching for work and collecting a government unemployment stippend have found themselves at the end of that stippend and off the governments radar. Another disturbing trend is that money destined for social services, veteran care and infrastructure is directed to the military and if Americans complain they are called 'un-patriotic'. At the same time there are the Chinese who own a majority share of the U.S. debt and who will want to collect on that debt.
      There are a lot of really questionable decisions being made by those in control of the country and its finances and that is making many people nervous.

      If this happens, and it should, perhaps some dick with a foreskin and a jewish name can convince the Americans it's not about the petro dollar, it's about economics real economics.
      Then maybe then America will balance its currency accordingly and, lets not forget America has had it's day in the sun.
      Once convinced the jew boy will be realised, circumcised and shot as an Iranian spy.
