Remember well, because what New Orleans experienced in the wake of Katrina is what the future holds for America. No matter how "doomy" the American citizen is, almost none of them believe that this spells the end. Gerald Celente knows how to read trends, but even he admits that unexpected factors sometimes enter in to skew the expected results.
What do we know that he doesn't that allows us to read the trends even more clearly? We know that at the End of Days, Eisav is destined to fall while Yisrael rises to world leadership.
Of the 'Roman' Empire, which over time evolved into the American Empire, the Maharal wrote in Ner Mitzvah:
...the fourth empire was a universal synthesis, alone equivalent to the others [the three preceding it].
...Because of its universality, this empire is motivated to be everything, not allowing anyone else to co-exist along with it.
...It therefore destroys all others, and is occupied with destruction only. ...Indeed, the basic trait of this empire was destructiveness, as it burned and destroyed the Temple of our God, ....
...Its destructiveness derives from the non-existence that cleaves to it [Am-reika], since the fourth empire is the end and finish of the world empires; their deterioration and ruin. The fourth empire is associated with void, and he who is associated with nothingness and void has the power to transmit it to another. Thus, the fourth empire derives the capacity to destroy and demolish all that is.
...Void, however, is what leads to existential renewal, as is well known, and therefore the vacuum and non-existence created by this empire will lead to the re-existence of Yisrael. The fourth empire is therefore called a swine --- Hazer, for it will return ---TaHazor, royal power to Yisrael.
We also know the end of Eisav from the prophet Ovadyah:
...So said the Lord God concerning Edom; We have heard tidings from the Lord, and a messenger has been sent among the nations, "Arise and let us rise up against them in war!" Behold I have made you small among the nations; you are very despised.
The wickedness of your heart enticed you, who dwell in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation is high, who says to himself, "Who will bring me down to the earth?" If you go up high like an eagle, and if you place your nest among the stars, from there I will bring you down, says the Lord.
...How Esau was searched out, how his hidden things were revealed! ...Shall I not in that day-says the Lord-destroy wise men from Edom and discernment from the mountain of Esau?
... And the house of Jacob shall be fire and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau shall become stubble, and they shall ignite them and consume them, and the house of Esau shall have no survivors, for the Lord has spoken.
The "experts" think it will be bad...very bad.
Gerald Celente : "Economic Armageddon"
But they still think America will make the big comeback, maybe even stronger than ever. It's not gonna happen. America's day (along with its empty culture) is done. And thank G-d for it!
