Gerald Celente describes himself as a “political atheist.” He is not a fan of conventional wisdom, television pundits or liars. Nearing 70 years of age, he’s still a one man powerhouse who tells it as he sees it. As a truth seeker’s truth seeker, Celente’s ability to spot and forecast future trends before they happen is legendary. Since 1980, his platform has been his personally created namesake called the Trends Research Institute. From this platform, Celente prognosticates a wide variety of topics: science, economics, entertainment, societal trends, politics – and much more.
In May of 2016, he called out Donald Trump as the odds on favorite. In July of 2016 Celente unabashedly predicated a Trump win for the presidency. In an interview with Greg Hunter of USA Watchdog shortly after the election, Celente commented; “There were a lot more losers in this race than Hillary Clinton.” By this he means, among others, the Obamas’ White House, including Michelle, the Hollywood elite and the mainstream media, the undoing of which is one of the Trends Journal top trends for 2017.
Celente believes that the Trump win isn’t just a political reshaping, and the momentum driving his victory is much bigger than the “populist movement” label. Americans are disgusted with the entire establishment – media, politics, music and more. The brainwashing of the mainstream media has become absolutely evident to 70 percent of the people, says Celente. That large percentage of the population knew they were being lied to by the media during the presidential election cycle.
Many well know that newspapers, along with television and radio pundits who blatantly supported Clinton and the establishment, “have lost all credibility,” according to the strategist, who calls the collective group a bunch of “presstitutes.” Daily newspapers will diminish and limit printing to a couple of days a week. Lay-offs are in progress at the New York Times. Rupert Murdoch’s media empire, News Corp, which owns the Wall Street Journal, is also in the midst of lay-offs, with revenues down by 21 percent. The Nation is another bastion of “progressive” thinking, says Celente, who gives them a tongue lashing:
“Grow up! … You little nation of nothing little slimers.”
CNN is the Cartoon News Network, says Celente, who believes that CNN and MSNBC only offer “the same disgusting people selling their same stupid lies.”
These remarks are quite similar to the tongue lashing President elect Donald Trump recently gave to Jeff Zucker, the CNN head honcho, along with other top executives and reporters from MSNBC, NBC and CBS. The NY Post reports that many well known personalities attended that Trump Tower meeting. Those in attendance were Erin Burnett, David Muir, George Stephanopoulos, Lester Holt, Martha Raddatz, Wolf Blitzer and Charlie Rose, among others. Trump did not hold back his disgust:
“We’re in a room of liars, the deceitful, dishonest media who got it all wrong.”
This election cycle certainly wasn’t the first wave of full-on media compliance to a myth that needed to be sold, though it’s possible that some of these media propagandists actually believe the lie themselves. With Facebook and Google manipulating the masses as the arbiters of truth, it’s up to each of us to dig deep for the facts, no matter where they lead.
Like 9/11, for example, and all that propaganda about al-Qaida and Osama bin Laden’s life and death. These lies have killed millions of innocent people while destroying the infrastructure, industry, soil, lives and livelihood of many more millions. I’ll bet Gerald Celente thinks that President-elect Trump should crack open the books for a truthful and legitimate 9/11 investigation, don’t you?
