How Real is the Threat of Nuclear War?

Daniel McAdams returns to share his insights into the current geopolitical landscape and to comment on the views of Tulsi Gabbard regarding the threat of the Ukraine war morphing into a catastrophic nuclear holocaust.

This show has almost always been about the markets and how to best protect your God-given wealth. But as your host was preparing for this week’s show, wealth being gained in the stock and bonds markets rang hollow as he thought about the very real and growing threats of World War III and a growing possibility of a nuclear end of humanity. American news has reminded us almost daily about Putin’s threat to use nuclear weapons to protect Russia against the American-lead NATO empire which he considers an existential threat to Russia’s right to exist as a sovereign nation. That appears to be Putin’s view and so it should not be a surprise that he means what he says when Russia not only reserves the right to use nukes to protect its sovereignty but has changed its laws in preparation to do so. And at least some signs that America is prepared to launch nukes as well is evidenced by a recent advertisement viewed in New York City where a very attractive actor was seen on TV advising New Yorkers to prepare for nuclear war.

Because of this very real threat and other anti-Constitutional policies being pushed by the Democrat party, we replay the words of former Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard telling why she is leaving the Democrat party and explaining to Joe Rogan how the U.S. has pushed the world to the verge of nuclear war. We hope and pray that this former Hawaiian Congressional Representative is overstating the threat. You listen and you decide. Hopefully we will be able to return to more normal content on October 25.
