Gerald CelenteTo my surprise, just three days after my article, Why is Gerald Celente Avoiding Dr. Stan Monteith’s Show?, Gerald Celente made a brief appearance (22 minutes) on the show, on January 6, 2014.

In my article, I had pointed out that Dr. Stan had tried getting him on at least half a dozen times since 2009, all to no avail.

I asked whether it was because Celente is purportedly anti-Zionist, or because he realized that Dr. Stan’s audience is more cerebral and discerning, or whether it was something else, because, clearly, he wasn’t interested in coming on, and had cancelled at the last minute in December.

Now, it seems, we have our answer. It appears, on the surface, at least, to be primarily, if not exclusively, related to him thinking he’s got better things to do now that he’s so popular in the alternative media.

This despite Dr. Stan’s show having nearly 70 terrestrial radio affiliates over the course of each week. Celente tipped his hat during the interview that he had recently appeared on Russian TV.

True to his carnival barking self, he was in full form 19 minutes into the interview, if you’re up for a little bit of pure entertainment, lacking any meaningful results.

Gerald CelenteThis is a question that came to my mind in 2012, by which Dr. Stan disclosed on a show with Ron Brown, a gold and silver dealer, that he had tried around half a dozen times to get Gerald Celente on his show, but there had no luck.

Then, I saw that Gerald Celente was listed as a guest on December 20 at 6 PM EST, but he was replaced at the last minute with Stephen Frank, whom I have previously interviewed.

The schedule still shows a rebroadcast on December 27 mentioning Gerald Celente, but it’s the interview with Stephen Frank.

Then, we notice this tweet at 4:02 PM:

I suspect — based on my experience in following the alternative media since 2006, though I have no hard proof — that Celente’s staff scheduled him in for the 20th, completely unbeknownst to Celente, and once he found out, he unceremoniously cancelled.

Why is Celente avoiding Dr. Stan Monteith’s show?

Could it be because Dr. Stan is an avowed Christian Zionist, and Celente has many Jewish employees who are apparently staunchly anti-Zionist?

Or could it be that Celente realized that his carnival barking approach won’t really go down so well with Dr. Stan’s more cerebral audience?

Or is it something else, altogether?

Past archives show that he was on Dr. Stan’s show in February 2009, and nothing from that interview indicates that anything went wrong, which is why Dr. Stan wanted to have him on again.

For what I think of Zionism, see here. But as far as being against Zionism, that won’t stop me from going on Dr. Stan’s show, as he is a sincere Christian Zionist, based on his sincere religious convictions, though I don’t share them, nor did the majority of Christians for 1800 years until a man named Cyrus I. Scofield came on the scene with his Scofield Bible.

The shows I won’t go on are those where the hosts are disingenuously supportive of Zionism, either as opportunists, through deliberate ignorance, blind support based on ethnic origin, or something more sinister, such as working for the other side, and it’s one or more of those reasons that I won’t go on Coast to Coast AM or the Alex Jones Show.

Gerald CelenteTo blow off ritualistic steam about our financial and political problems, watch Gerald Celente, like in this April 25, 2013 interview with Alex Jones, where he was in true form.

Immediately following the September 2008 U.S. and global financial meltdown, Gerald Celente was a welcome voice in the wilderness of those who understood the failed policies of the banking elite, and could articulate them in a captivating way. The problem is, he’s been repeating the same talking points ever since.

Hardly an interview goes by when he doesn’t blast the same old “white shoe boys,” and telling us for the zillionth time, incorrectly mind you, that Mussolini knew something about fascism, and that it’s the merger of government and corporations. That, despite Italian speaker, Webster Tarpley, pointing out that Mussolini said no such thing, and that the word Mussolini used — corporazione — referred to guilds, where owners took personal responsibility, as opposed to modern corporations , where directors have unlimited liability, except for very, very rare circumstances where the “corporate veil” is pierced.

And, as George Whitehurst-Berry has stated, whatever fascism is or isn’t, it is intensely nationalistic. Conversely, what we are seeing these days is intensely internationalistic, and therefore fails the fascism test, among other reasons.

For real solutions, watch serious monetary reformers, Wayne Walton and Tom J. Kennedy, and see my interviews with them here and here, respectively.

Gerald CelenteAppearing on the May 3, 2012 episode of the Alex Jones Show, Gerald Celente’s failed Q1 2012 European bank holiday prediction was never mentioned, in his first appearance since the end of Q1 2012.

Obviously everyone wants to downplay their failures while trumpeting their successes, but the issue in the so-called alternative media is that it is commonplace for much hype to be given before and during the show regarding a guest’s predictions, only for some big ones not to materialize and be swept under the rug, and the guest to be invited back to make more questionable predictions.

Here is the video showing Celente making his bogus prediction.

For someone who has been known for making repeated bogus predictions, see my article, Lindsey Williams’ 2010 oil price prediction tanked.

Gerald Celente of the Trends Research Institute, the man who, according to the Washington Times, accurately predicted “the 1987 stock market crash, the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the 1997 Asian currency crash, and the 2007 subprime mortgage scandal,” was on the Alex Jones Show on May 7, 2010, and said at 1:55:46:

I’m not allowed, by law, to provide financial advice. That’s why I always make it clear — this is what I would do. What I’ve done and I’ve said it over and over again, it’s very simple for me. I buy gold — 80%. The rest of my money, I have hedged. I’m in dollars and I’m in Canadian dollars. One goes up, the other goes down. All I want is wealth preservation. Gold is my wildcard. The other ones, all I want to do is stay in.

For some historical background on gold, it reached an all-time closing high by January 21, 1980, of $850 USD an ounce, not reached again until 28 years later, on January 2, 2008. Its all-time high was reached on December 2, 2009, at $1212.50 USD an ounce. From $255.95 on April 2, 2001, that represents a 474% gain in just under 9 years — a more than 50% annualized return on investment.

Timing is key — From January 21, 1980 to January 1,  2008, your return on investment on gold was negative, while it was 1495% with the Dow Jones Industrial Average. From April 2, 2001 to December 2, 2009, gold’s ROI was 474%, while the DJIA’s was only 6.9%.
