    Urgent Warning! CNN revealed a long kept secret for the first time!

    Prepare for the Next Global Financial Meltdown!

    This is a little off topic. But I just watched a shocking and controversial video interview on CNN with Bob Weidemer, who is one of the three economists that first saw the economic crisis kicked off by the 2008 mortgage scandal and were pooh-poohed by mainstream media. He is back, and this time, he made another prediction that a much worse economic crisis is coming in 2013.

    Economist and New York Times Bestselling author Bob Weidemer releases in this video charts and predictions so controversial his publisher pulled them from his most recent book, Aftershock: Protect Yourself and Profit in the Next Global Financial Meltdown. Weidemer predicts 50% unemployment, a 90% stock market collapse, a plummeting dollar and soaring debt, and 100% annual inflation.

    Weidemer takes shots at former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan and the current Chairman, Ben Bernanke; the video was deemed so controversial that many online networks took it down and affiliates refused to house it. Censorship? Say it ain’t so! According to CNN Financial Publisher Aaron DeHoog, “People were sitting up and taking notice, and they begged us to make the Aftershock Survival Summit public so they could easily share it, but unfortunately, it kept getting pulled.”

    While some are clearly trying to bury the message, others warn that sticking our collective heads in the sand would be a mistake. The S&P, for example, calls Wiedemer’s work “A compelling argument for a chilling conclusion,” and say “[His] track record demands our attention.” More importantly, though, it offers step-by-step advice for individuals and a blueprint for economic survival.

    Over 50 Million Americans Have United to View This Powerful Warning to Prepare for an Impending Economic Crisis! I Strongly Suggest You Take the Time to Watch this video before it’s too late…

      TD: Kathy made a mistake which can be corrected. I wonder if your incredible ugliness of attitude can.

  • http://WebproNews Leslie

    No mistake was made on Kathy’s part. Almost all of you fail to consider the fact that they took her information and altered the article because they did, in fact, initially have their info incorrect. Before you call someone out and say rude things, consider all of the likely possibilities.
