Marxists & Jihadis Assault Truth in Des Moines & America’s Heartland

When hotels in Green Bay and Milwaukee cancelled Worldview Weekend events – which included Understanding the Threat’s President John Guandolo – the entire war for liberty and the soul of our Republic was on full display in America’s heartland.

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a corrupt Marxist organization working daily with Hamas in the United States doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), sent the message out.

That message was dutifully received by the SPLC’s terrorists at Antifa who then launched a campaign to intimidate and threaten venues hosting Worldview Weekend’s events.


Worldview Weekend (WVW) sponsored a 5 city/5 day speaking tour on national security matters in Des Moines (IA), La Crosse (WI), Green Bay (WI), Bloomington (MN), and Milwaukee (WI).

According to Worldview Weekend’s founder Brannon Howse, there were over 1000 people registered in Milwaukee and over 1500 registered in Minnesota.

Worldview Weekend hosts UTT’s TV and radio programs at WVWTV.com and WorldviewRadio.com, respectively.

Understanding the Threat published a video on our YouTube channel detailing key events of the tour’s cancellation.  That video can be seen HERE.

Worldview Weekend’s Brannon Howse published a video interview with Chris Gaubatz about the events and the tour cancellation which can be seen HERE.

Several Marxists and a few sharia-adherent muslims attended the event in Des Moines, including Iowa State Representative Ako Abdul-Samad, a sharia-adherent muslim (jihadi) and the Chairman of the jihadi organization American Muslim Alliance, and Abshir Omar, a candidate for Des Moines City Council who previously served as the Director for Hamas in Iowa doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).

WHO TV, Des Moines Channel 13 news was present at the event and interviewed Brannon Howse, UTT’s John Guandolo, and Representative Abdul-Samad.  Oddly, the news station posted the raw interview of Abdul-Samad on their website but not the raw interviews of Brannon Howse or John Guandolo.

Abdul-Samad was previously praised by Hamas (CAIR).

The WHO TV piece on the event as well as the raw interview of Abdul-Samad can be seen HERE.



After John Guandolo spoke, Abshir Omar approached him and the two men had a lengthy discussion which Omar describes as “cordial.”  In the discussion, Mr. Guandolo was able to get Abshir Omar to admit that all of Islam requires apostates (those who leave Islam) and homosexuals to be killed.

Omar is a Somali muslim refugee and a member of the Democratic Socialists of America who was supported by CAIR in his unsuccessful 2016 bid for Des Moines City Council.


Today, UTT published a new video with John Guandolo rebutting untrue/defamatory comments by Iowa Representative Abdul-Samad, and discussing the command in Islam for muslims to lie to non-muslims and speak pleasantly and in a “refined manner” to them while doing it.

See that video HERE.

    Inasmuch as the United States is perforce engaged in an existential war* with Islam, with whom Marxists constitute an alacritous ally, any adult member of either organization who refuses to answer a direct question by competent authority as to their willingness to declare their loyalty to the United States and to renounce any allegiance to any foreign government and/or the draconian philosophy referred to as “sharia adherence” should either be incarcerated in the United States in accordance with Senate Resolution 166, of July 6, 1943, as appropriately amended, or deported to the geographic location to which said contextually criminal allegiance is owed.

    Furthermore, any member of a Federal. State or local law-enforcement entity who engages individually or collusively in an interstate attempt under-color-of-law to effectively prevent UTT, or anyone else, from engaging in their Constitutional right of free speech regardless of context, and/or who it offends, they should be cited for sedition and/or misprision of treason (in time of war) by the appropriate element of the U.S. Department of Justice.

    *Anyone wishing to acquire a personal Arab-to-English verbatim translation of Islam’s said declaration of war on the United States, which in 2004 was seized by Special Agents of the FBI in compliance with a federal search warrant from a subterranean basement in Annandale, Virginia, may do so (for a nominal handling & postage fee) by contacting http://www.securefreedom.org to request: GOVERNMENT EXHIBIT 003-0085 3:04-CR-240-G U.S. v. HLF, et al.

  7. I clicked on the link, for WHO channel 13 News, interview with Ako Abdul Samad reacting to the seminar and of course being very pleasant, talking about why other hotels would cancel, as if he was unaware, so politely calculating, very deceptive. and not mentioning that you were quoting from authentic sources, the Quran, Sharia law and Haddiths,) he did his obligatory smooth refuting of the truth.Shortly after the his interview, the channel used a story about the Des Moines Iowa Museum of funeral caskets history, I found that to be very disturbing. I wonder who influenced that decision at the T.V.station, as if it was a veiled threat to attend such events.. The event looked successful and I wish WI would have backed your event, as I have written to you before it has spread in my town and it is frightening to experience the changes. Your video is excellent and so true. God Bless you. Waiting for the day the media “get’s it” and the seriousness of the dangerous influence unchecked.

    Thank you Mr. Guandolo. Lord Bless You

  9. “The religion of peace confirmed Islam instructs Muslims to kill those who leave Islam”…..priceless

    We need to educate everyone about the teachings of Islam

    Islam teaches some really intolerant, hateful, violent things

    Here’s a way for readers to see how “peaceful” Islam is from the comfort of their own home and learn it’s sinister truth http://www.Quran.com

    The way to use that website http://www.Quran.com is to search for the verse you want, here’s a couple examples of verses I recommend, just copy each set of verse numbers below into the “search” bar at http://www.Quran.com

    7:175 “Recite to them O Muhammad, that which we instructed….so Satan pursued him, and he became of the deviators
    “8:39 “fight til all religion is for allah” IE. until all people are Muslim
    9:5 “when sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists” Islam considers Christianity polytheists
    4:89 “if they turn away (from Islam) kill them”
    2:191 “and kill them wherever you overtake them, such is recompense of disbelievers (non-Muslims)”
    8:67 “it is not for a prophet to have captives of war (slaves) until he inflicts a slaughter upon the land”
    47:4 “when you meet disbeliever (non-Muslim) strike neck” see 8:39 above Islam is at war with all
    5:51. “take no Jew or Christian as an ally”
    8:12 “cast TERROR into hearts of disbelievers, so strike their necks & strike every fingertip”
    8:60 “prepare whatever steeds of war you are able that you may TERRIFY enemies of allah” non-Muslims
    47:35 “do not seek peace while you are superior”
