99.9% probablility of total and utter collapse before April 2013, says Max Keiser

Hate to post gloom and doom but forewarned is forearmed.

Max Keiser predicts CIVIL WAR in America before April 2013, due to global fiat money collapse. He suggests that China pulling out of the propping up of American Debt will be the trigger. That and the upward move in interest rates. China is buying GOLD and investing in their own gold-backed currency.

From 8/2/12 We'll see if he's right soon enough.

Its impossible to predict.

Its impossible to predict. We know its coming, but we can't know what BS tricks the banking empire will pull to prolong it.

People have been predicting

People have been predicting this for so many years but it never happens. I've begun to question the people I've trusted in with this kind of info.

Same here. Not saying they're

Same here. Not saying they're wrong but that it seems pointless to try and predict a date. For instance, let's say some of what he says is true - what he seems to miss is that the Fed and governments will then take "ACTION" as they always call it. And it can postpone what he THINKS should happen. Thus, his opinion is no better or worse than mine. I'm honestly not a big fan of Keiser for some reason.

Max Keiser

Max Keiser is wrong on a complete market collapse and civil war by April 2013.

Max wouldn't risk his entire reputation on one prediction

if he didn't know for a fact it was true.

He must have read The Illuminatus!

Tiny island of Fernando Poo sets off global crisis beginning on March 15, ending on April 1, nuclear event involving the U.S., Russia, and Great Brittin.

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.

Good interview! It's actually

Good interview! It's actually from back in August and Max predicted 9 months so by May actually. Still it's hard to make predictions like this. I don't think it will happen that fast but what they are talking about will and is happening no question.

Max made an important point most are missing the Markets are now traded and manipulated via computer algorithms. The entire markets are an illusion driven by computer model. That is why gold and silver have not broken out and that is why the Stocks don't crash completely. Its the ultimate insider trading except they have complete control of the market to make it do what ever they want. You drop prices and buy and then raise prices and take profits. Its the perfect con job and the people think its all market driven. And all the little wannabe commies decry capitalism.

You want to invest in something real and tangible? Buy a farm and a 3D printer and learn to grow food learn Hugelkultur and Aquaponics. Stop feeding the illusion as much as possible pulls your money out of the markets. Cash in the 401K etc. before its too late and teach your children and grandchildren something real for survival and abundance protecting the environment start building heaven on earth right no right where you are!

End The Fat
70 pounds lost and counting! Get in shape for the revolution!

Get Prepared!

The "backing" fiat money is next, that's all.

And only relative time will tell.

After a while of learning about what's going on in the world...

...you come to realize that "everything's fine" and "END OF THE WORLD TOMMOROW!!!!!" are not the only possibilities. ;-)

The most probable future IMO is a long-term decline punctuated by periodic crises, but not a complete Mad Max style collapse.

Any bets on whether Max resigns his post when/if his bold prediction proves wrong?

fear monger

this guy's bucking a job with RNC or DNC.. We're nowhere near a collapse -still huge wealth here -my guess is if the errosion continues it'll take another 50 years but I'll guess the future beyond my life will be whatever it'll be -not sure anyone can know where we'll be?

We drastically need to adhere to the principle of freedom where you can do anything as long as you don't hurt anyone. Population growth and pollution hurts and will do most of the world in but I'll guess part of human race survives. We have 50 years of phosphorus left at current trajectory -everything dies without it..

Government is supposed to protect our freedom, our property, our privacy, not invade it. Ron Paul 2007

Max Keiser

He's no authority. I used to watch his show on RT every day, and I've gradually lost interest in his opinion.

He is to the economic collapse as Timothy LaHaye is to armageddon.

Michael Nystrom's fists can punch through FUD.

yea there is nothing going

yea there is nothing going on. the economy is great, the Bilderbergers and the one world government stooges have given in. Freedom and Liberty is blossoming over the whole world. Don't worry. be happy. Bad things could never happen in the US or to ME!!!!


Many on this thread can not

Many on this thread can not see the signs of the times. Deceived you are. I feel for your families.

A lot of these guys are sensationalists

A lot of these guys are sensationalist trying to garner viewership, peddle their newsletters, or sell something. Max Kaiser is compensated via selling Goldmoney along with compensation from other ads on his sites and videos via someone clicking on it.

I have nothing against trying to make a buck, but to say April of 2013 is the collapse is utter nonsense and I am surprised by it.

Remember Gerald Celente's call of the 2010 crash? I called him out on it March of 2010: http://buygoldandsilversafely.com/economy/is-gerald-celente-...

I wrote: "I agree with Celente, the Austrians and Mish Shedlock on the negative consequences of government spending eventually bringing down the economy, but I don’t see it happening as quickly as Celente does.

GDP can’t keep growing fueled by government spending alone, however, Obama has a few more trillion to spend to stimulate the economy in 2010 as his self imposed spending freeze begins in 2011 (I’ll believe it when I see it).

As long as the U.S. Dollar continues it’s upward trend, and barring any unforeseen “external influences,” 2010 might just be a “muddle through” year (to use Financial Advisor John Mauldin’s former terminology) with both ups and downs in the market."

Another predictor of doom (hyperinflation) each year is John Williams of Shadowstats. Here's his 2012 prediction: http://www.shadowstats.com/article/no-414-hyperinflation-spe...

Prior to that Williams said this in his DEPRESSION SPECIAL REPORT
Number 52 - August 1, 2009, "Risks for the onset of a hyperinflation in the United States are particularly high during the next year. As will be discussed in the soon-to-be-updated Hyperinflation Special Report (see the existing April 2008 version for basic background), the United States would be particularly hard hit by such a circumstance."

I'm pretty sure he has predicted hyperinflation every year.

The fact of the matter is the Fed is still relevant. They have successfully stimulated the stock market and caused a bounce in real estate in many areas. But a market built on fluff is the beginning of the next bubble.

Treasuries are in the beginning of the next bubble but as Japan has shown, that bubble can be prolonged and that's what the Fed is doing. But we are not the same as Japan by a long shot.

The valuations aren't there for the stock market like the last time we were at these levels.

Banks still don't mark to market their real estate assets.

The list goes on.

But to predict a collapse in April of this year is rather looney.

Doesn't mean you shouldn't have the insurance that gold provides. I tell my clients it's the tortoise vs. the hare. In the end, the gold tortoise will win out over the hare debt. In the end, the Fed will become irrelevant.

Seriously: 1. I sincerely hope Max is wrong


1. I sincerely hope Max is wrong on the timing

2. I believe he is just pretty nervous

3. On #2, and if he does live in Paris, I can sure understand WHY and relate !

Not going to happen.

just hope it doesn't for your

just hope it doesn't for your sake.

Collapse would not be all negative.

I was born into the fiat system. I am deep in school debt. I have no assets to lose but debt.

you are correct. the

you are correct. the implosion will be good. BUT the problem is are you prepared not to be able to go to the grocery store for 6 months to 2 years? Can you defend your self from looters? Most, if not all the naysayers on here calling this guy a fear mongerer are the ones who are not prepared.

If I can find ample illicit drugs 24/7 in spite of War on Drugs

With no violence ever, I am not worried about food or looting being a huge problem.

But yes, I like to dabble in certain DIY libertarian hobbies, and family and friends do as well. I am not losing sleep about economic collapse- life goes on. I imagine that many of the people doing things now will be the ones doing things then.

And I second the claim that Keiser is a fear monger.


Has a national debt of over 2 trillion USD according to the national debt clocks.

They have even higher rates of debt on the municipal/local level..a large chunk most likely due to corruption as Chinese bureaucrats flee abroad with millions.

They are not going anywhere fast. They have tons of their own problems. They will implode probably quicker than the US because many of their numbers are fudged and with internal strife and ecological nightmares. They simply cannot keep projecting to the world that double digit growth increases are unstoppable. Besides they cannot continue to feed decently their huge population and keep on exporting tons of fish and other foods with the price of these commodities rising. Notice how they are savaging Africa by killing Rhinos and Elephants like there was no tomorrow. Where is the outcry over this?

They will step in it when they gear up their military to start grabbing resources and jurisdictions around them.


I'll have to say

... Drudge is now pumping up the Cyprus thing.

Stock markets

and related data are beyond my comprehension...I'd have to take a course to understand it, I suppose...and right now that's the least of my worries.

Anyway, I do recall reading recently (from a Business Insider link) that someone made a $11 million bet that a stock market downturn would occur by the end of April, 2013 (if I remember correctly).

That prediction captured my attention since I also recall stock market {airplane} shenanigans relative to 9/11...

It's never wise to put a specific date to a prediction.

Even Jesus didn't do it re: His 2nd return in glory.

The collapse will come, but what if it doesn't happen by next month? A bit of egg on the face.

Deceiving title... old propaganda!

Deceiving title... old propaganda! It was safe to blab this type of hype a year ago. Whether anything happens or not, it will be from the same market forces and political forces of which Dr. Paul has long warned!

Follow the constitution just as Ron Paul has wisely advised, and the course becomes straight and easy!

Max is wrong. China will not

Max is wrong. China will not stop propping up US debt by April 2013. But thanks for the laugh.

So when this doesn't happen

will Alex Jones' Sheep admit that he is a headline grabbing fraud?
Probably not since 1/10 of AJ predictions come true yet people still worship this guy.

i realize this is Keiser's prediction but AJ should be held accountable too for promoting this crap after all he profits from having guests on his show that say this junk.

I don't know what show you listen to

But I've been monitoring the "AJ" show for the past 12 years or so. In that time I find Mr. Jones (and his research team) to be FAR more accurate with their predictions than any one of their "guests" His accuracy has been somewhere in the 65% zone.I do check (via my own research) every Big topic that he speaks on,and am amazed by their accuracy. Not perfect but much better than any other "Talk Show Hosts" That I've ever heard.

He profits!?

I knew there was something wrong with that AJ guy.

All those films he made, that I found very informative, and that actually did a goo job of describing what is happening today were a trick.
Arrghh! He profits!

Well at least I hope it isn't from voluntary exchange. That kind of profit is the worst. People choosing to trade their money for a product or service is so extreme and scary.

Thanx for the heads up.
