Is the world inching closer to a nuclear war? Worldview Report Transcript: August 9, 2022

INTRO: Is the world inching closer to a nuclear war? Another warning to report tonight and this time it’s from the highest levels.

We have another example of a store owner defending his business, and his life, against an armed robber. In this case, the store owner met the criminal’s firepower with more firepower of his own, and it’s all captured on video.

Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan, the highest level U.S. official visit to the island since the late 1990s, is provoking strong reactions from China and Russia. We’ll provide an update.

And a January 6 protester gets seven years in prison despite the fact he committed no acts of violence and did not even enter the Capitol that day.

We have all these stories and more when the Worldview Report begins, right now!


Good evening and welcome to the Worldview Report. I’m Brannon Howse.

United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres warned that society is on the precipice of “nuclear annihilation.”

The head of the U.N., while speaking at the opening of the 10th Review Conference of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons on Monday, said, “Today, humanity is just one misunderstanding, one miscalculation away from nuclear annihilation.”

Participants at the meeting met to review the 52-year-old treaty designed to prevent the development of nuclear weapons, which Guterres says needs to be changed in a way that bans all nuclear weapons. Which of course is a pipe dream.

His comments came just as Iran was making new threats to nuke New York City into oblivion.

The Islamic regime in Iran, long a source of concern for much of the rest of the world as it pursues nuclear weapons with the stated intent of destroying Israel, now has expanded its threats to include New York.

A report at Foreign Desk explained Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps issued a statement on its Telegram channel over the weekend.

The post said Iran "can immediately return to the Emad project and build an atom bomb if the Natanz facilities are attacked."

Reports explain the comments came on its linked Bismichi Media Telegram channel, with a video that was called, "When Will Iran's Sleeping Nuclear Warheads Awaken?"

According to the report, “In the short video, Tehran declared that it could use its peaceful nuclear program into a nuclear weapons program quickly if the United States or Israel made any careless mistakes. The video post further stated that Iran could 'pulverize' New York and turn it into a 'hellish ruin.’”

Some officials view this very public threat as a sign that Iran may have recently crossed over the nuclear threshold and either has a bomb or is capable of quickly assembling one.

Russian leaders have also threatened to nuke America if it continues to interfere in its war against Ukraine.

The City of New York, as we’ve previously reported, has sent out a video public service announcement on July 18 warning residents of the city how to take cover during a nuclear attack. It followed that up with another cryptic message on July 30 calling on New Yorkers to get their go-bags ready in case they need to leave the city.


Meanwhile, the U.S. Army ran a training exercise last week designed to prepare troops to aid in the aftermath of hypersonic missile attacks targeting several U.S. cities simultaneously.

Hundreds of active military and emergency workers gathered in Philadelphia last Thursday to simulate the aftermath of a hypersonic missile strike on Philadelphia, New York City and Chicago, according to the Army Times. The Dense Urban Terrain exercise simulated a scenario the military calls "America's worst day." Emergency workers and soldiers aided at least 150 role players sporting fake wounds and acting out potential symptoms from an unknown chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear attack.

The exercise was led by Army National Guard's Task Force 46, which mainly includes soldiers from the Michigan National Guard. Over 600 additional personnel from federal, state, local, academic and private partners took part in the three-day exercise, according to the Guard.

Army National Guard Colonel Chris McKinney, Task Force 46 chief of staff, told Army Times:

"This is an opportunity to train firsthand with some of the best first responders in the world who do this day in and day out.”

The “America’s Worst Day” exercises have been going on annually since 2018, with each year posing a different scenario. The fact that this year’s exercise involved a hypersonic missile strike is chilling because that’s the exact type of strike that Russia has threatened if the U.S. becomes too involved in the Ukraine war.


In Norco, California, a thief with a rifle ran into a liquor store and tried to hold up the store owner, pointing his rifle at him as he entered.

But the store owner had no fear and quickly pulled out a shotgun and blasted the thief in the arm.

The next thing you hear are screams as the thief runs out of the store to his getaway car, yelling “he shot my arm off!”

This is a priceless video. Take a look.


The only sad part to this story is that the owner had a heart attack after defending his store, but he is now said to be recovering.

The four thugs involved were also caught and the one who was shot is in critical, but stable condition. They are all in their 20s.

If you’re looking for a moral to this story, maybe it’s this: Don’t bring a rifle to a shotgun fight. In close quarters, the shotgun will always win. And, of course the irony of it all is that if Nancy Pelosi’s assault weapons ban becomes law, the criminal’s AR-15 would be declared illegal to buy or manufacture while that much more lethal shotgun remains perfectly legal.


Another person of note has lost their life after being “fully vaccinated.”

Heather Gray, producer of The Talk, on CBS News, has died at the age of 50. The death, like so many of the others, was reported as sudden and unexpected, with no cause given.

Gray was described as being the “heart and soul of The Talk from day one.”

We know the purpose of the Covid gene-therapy shots is not to keep people alive and healthy but to make them sick and die.

There’s now overwhelming evidence that the entire medical-security complex knew ahead of time what affect these shots would have on the human body but they promoted them anyway, in some cases under threat of job loss or even the withholding of medical care if a person did not submit to the killer shots.

But why? Why do so many people in powerful positions want us all to get “vaccinated,” from the very top at the United Nations World Health Organization and the World Economic Forum to the CDC and many of the top health officials at the national level?

Catherine Austin Fitts, the eminent attorney and activist says the answer to that question is one that many will find tough to swallow.

And oh, by the way, it’s not just the vaccines that are doing a number on the human species.

Take a listen.


She stated that very clearly.

"The thing that's bringing life expectancy down in the general population is we're all being poisoned ... I don't think you need a lot of magical drugs to live a long life. I think you just need to avoid somebody trying to kill you,” she said.


Communist China warned U.S. politicians they will “come to no good end” if they continue to “play with fire” over Taiwan as video emerged of tanks lined up on beaches opposite the island nation.

The Daily Mail reports of “chilling footage” shared on Chinese social networks showing what appeared to be amphibious tanks on the coast of Fujian along the Taiwan Strait. Further footage showed military equipment on the move within China.

The unverified videos emerged amid soaring tensions between China and the U.S. with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi touching down in Taipei on Tuesday. Pelosi is the highest-ranking U.S. elected official to visit Taiwan since 1997. 

Beijing had earlier warned that the United States will pay the price if Pelosi visits Taiwan while Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi said on Tuesday that those U.S. politicians who “play with fire” on the Taiwan issue will “come to no good end.”

Russian spokesman Dmitry Peskov warned that Pelosi’s visit would be “extremely provocative” and “destabilizing” to the world.

In response, the U.S. sent four warships, including the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan, into the waters east of Taiwan on “routine deployments.”

The USS Ronald Reagan moved into the South China Sea from its position in the Philippines Sea, a U.S. Navy official confirmed on Tuesday. The Japanese-based Reagan is operating with a guided missile cruiser, USS Antietam, and a destroyer, USS Higgins.

The U.S. Navy official said the amphibious assault ship USS Tripoli was also in the area as part of a deployment to the region that started in early May from its home port of San Diego. 

Taiwan has vowed to defend itself in reaction to “enemy threats” as the specter of China attacking Taiwan intensifies. The island nation has made strengthening its defenses a priority, with regular military and civil defense drills, including designating air-raid shelters where civilians can take cover if Beijing launches missiles at the island. 

Taiwan's 23 million people live under the constant threat of invasion by the communist dictatorship in China, which views the island as its territory and has vowed to one day seize it, by force if necessary. Beijing tries to keep Taiwan isolated on the world stage and opposes countries having official exchanges with it.


Americans are increasingly relying on dollar stores to feed their families as inflation has driven grocery store prices up by as much as 12.2%.

Grocery sales at discount stores spiked 71% between October 2021 and June 2022, the Daily Mail reports citing data from the analytics firm InMarket, while sales of the same items in grocery stores dropped 5%.

The shift comes as 61% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck, according to a LendingClub report, and discount chains such as Walmart warn prices won't come down anytime soon.

While some dollar stores stock fresh produce, the majority only supply boxed and canned food high in sugars and salts. This could spell trouble for the health of Americans on top of their financial woes. 

Economists blame Joe Biden's spending spree and supply chain snarl-ups along with the war in Ukraine and sanctions on Russia for stressing global food and energy markets. But there’s also been a concerted effort to block farmers in key growing areas from using the proper amounts of fertilizer. That’s caused a farmers’ uprising in countries such as the Netherlands, Italy and Spain, and now Justin Trudeau is attempting the same anti-fertilizer policies in Canada.


In another sign of a faltering economy, the private auto insurance company GEICO has reportedly shut down all 38 of its insurance offices in California.

Customers can still get policies but have to use mobile or computer apps for products and services. Insurance in that state is now solely available online or through a mobile device, as the company has discontinued its use of telephone agents.

According to The Sacramento Bee, hundreds of GEICO employees across the state were laid off due to the closure of 38 offices.

An investigative reporter for TV stations in California went to the GEICO office and found a notice that read, “All GEICO offices in California are CLOSED for business.”


New Mexico’s Democrat Governor, Michelle Grisham, declared a state of emergency Friday for the city of Las Vegas.

The small town, with a population of 13,000, has only 50 days’ worth of water supplies left.

The disastrous situation developed after its only source of clean water, the Gallinas River, was contaminated by debris and ash coming from fires that blazed through forests upstream in April and May, ABC News reported.

The fires destroyed state, federal and private property and burned thousands of acres of the Gallinas River’s watershed.

The fire — declared the largest wildfire in New Mexico’s history — originated after the U.S. Forest Service miscalculated the effects of their controlled burns, according to a report by The Associated Press.


The conservative group Moms for Liberty said PayPal unfroze the money in the group’s account following Governor Ron DeSantis’ announcement last week that Florida would crack down on “woke” banking companies.

Moms for Liberty was founded in 2021 by parents and former school board members. Their mission focuses on defending parental rights with a massive grassroots network of parents across the country.

According to Florida’s Voice News, Moms for Liberty Co-Founder Tina Descovich said the organization had used PayPal for more than a year before running into problems.

Many of the group’s donors gave monthly through PayPal. However, Descovich said PayPal sent notifications that it froze the organization’s accounts during Governor DeSantis’s speech at the Moms for Liberty National Summit July 15th.

Descovich told Florida’s Voice:

“While he’s speaking, I started getting emails that PayPal has stopped processing one by one all of our monthly donors.”

PayPal also froze the organization’s $4,500 and would not let them transfer the money out. PayPal told Descovich they could not operate on the platform until the IRS approved the organization’s paperwork. However, Descovich said PayPal had already accepted the paperwork they filed with the IRS, which is backlogged, in January of 2021.

PayPal suddenly released the funds after Governor DeSantis’ press conference announcing he wants legislation passed to prohibit transmitters like PayPal from discriminating against customers for their religious, political or social beliefs. Descovich had spoken about her PayPal experience at the press conference.


Well, the corruption of America’s youth continues unabated.

In California, video footage has emerged of a “family friendly” drag queen show in which the perverted men in skimpy outfits pretending to be women encourage a little girl to dance for the crowd and then people threw money at the girl.

What the drag queens said next is enough to make your blood boil as they exploit this young child.

This footage is from Palm Springs, California. Take a look.


In case you didn’t catch that at the end, the drag queen told the girl, “Look at all the money you just made.” If that’s not encouraging the sexualization and exploitation of children, teaching them to perform for cash, I don’t know what is. And yet they get away with it. No consequences. We are witnessing a culture, a society on the brink of collapse.


Time now for our Worldview Report commentary.

January 6 defendant Guy Reffitt, an oil worker from Texas, was sentenced on Monday to more than seven years in prison for attending the January 6 protests in Washington, DC. Reffitt did not engage in any violence. He did not even enter the U.S. Capitol.

But perhaps the saddest part of this case is that the government used Reffitt’s own son to testify against his father.

The Gateway Pundit reports that the FBI wired up his son and sent him into their home to record his dad. The FBI used the recordings to prosecute the oil worker to the fullest degree possible.

As noted by The Gateway Pundit, the former Soviet Union was also famous for turning children against their parents.

U.S. District Judge Dabney Friedrich, a former George W. Bush attorney who was appointed to her current post on the D.C. Court by President Trump, sentenced Guy Reffitt to serve 87 months in prison, to be followed by 3 years of supervised release.

Judge Friedrich warned Reffitt if he violates terms he will go back to prison for up to the maximum term.

Reffitt will serve the longest prison term handed down to date to any defendant connected to January 6th — and he committed NO VIOLENCE and he DID NOT ENTER the U.S. Capitol. He did yell at police officers, hardly something worth seven years hard time.

After the sentencing, Nicole Reffitt spoke briefly with reporters.

Nicole warned Americans that the evil and corrupt DC politicians will come after them next.

After she made her comments, the assembled media hacks tried to flip the script, resorting to harassing questions of her and her daughters about their family’s fundraising efforts. Nicole is a stay-at-home mother!

Take a look.

What a shameful display of journalism right there. It’s been said that the job of a true journalist is to afflict the powerful and comfort the afflicted, but today’s journalists have flipped that high moral standard on its head. They now specialize in afflicting the weak and comforting the powerful.

That does it for this edition of the Worldview Report. Thanks for spending this last half hour with us. We hope you will join us again tomorrow night when we do it all over again. Good night and may God save America.
