Good evening everyone and welcome to the Worldview Report. I’m your host, Brannon Howse.
We lead off tonight with breaking news on the border, where we have a report from Todd Bensman, who has just come out with an investigative book, “America’s Covert Border War,” which is all about the human trafficking cartels, MS13, drug cartels and Islamic terrorists that are coming over the border.
Terrorists from Iran and other countries in the Middle East start from Venezuela and get trafficked to the U.S.-Mexico border.
Here is a clip from my extensive interview with Todd Bensman, in which he lays out the truth about the wide-open border and those who are exploiting it. He lists some of the most dangerous countries from which unknown, unvetted individuals are coming on a regular basis, including Pakistan, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Bangladesh and “all of the stan countries.”
Take a listen.

Stacey Abrams’ net worth has increased by a factor of 29 since she first appeared on the political scene and became a darling of the national far-left progressives four years ago.
Abrams, the Georgia Democrat who is running for governor for the second time in 2022, says she is worth nearly $3.2 million, which is approximately $3.1 million more than the $109,000 she said she was worth before running for Governor of Georgia in 2018.
The Associated Press reports that Abrams’ skyrocketing net worth is one less thing for Republicans to complain about.
When Abrams first ran in 2018, the news agency explains, “her lackluster personal finances and a hefty bill from the IRS gave Republicans fodder to question how she could manage a state budget when she struggled with her own debts.”
Now a multi-millionaire, “that’s no longer an issue,” the news agency boasts on Abrams’ behalf.
I guess you don’t need to pay for as much advertising when you have the Associated Press on the take as your personal public relations firm and willing to work for free. That will certainly help your bottom line.
Americans are blessed to be able to own a firearm under the Second Amendment, but using that firearm is increasingly risky as prosecutors have been scrutinizing these cases and applying stricter and stricter standards for what constitutes self defense.
One state where that is less of a problem is Texas. You may recall the case of Kyle Carruth from November 5th of last year. Kyle was defending himself at his home in Lubbock, Texas, against his ex wife’s husband. We now have an update to his case in which the local prosecutor has decided not to file charges.
Of course, the media can also play a role in these cases. Here’s how the local television media reported that case in Austin, Texas.
As you could see from that report, the media clearly wanted that man prosecuted. And if he had lived in a different state, say New York, California or Massachusetts, you can guarantee that Mr. Carruth would have faced a very different outcome.
Global warming? What global warming?
According to What’sUpwithThat.com, a science blog authored by a real scientist, Ben Lawson, the earth’s temperature hasn’t warmed at all for the last seven years.
According to the site’s monitoring of satellite weather data, seven and a half years have passed since there was any trend in global warming at all.
SHOW FIRST GRAPH
The site states that:
“One of the best-kept secrets in what passes for ‘journalism’ these days is that global temperature has not been rising steadily (or, since October 2014, at all). It has been rising in occasional spurts in response to natural events such as the great Pacific shift of 1976 and the subsequent strong el Niño events, rather than at the somewhat steadier rate that one might expect if our continuing – and continuous – sins of emission were the primary culprit.”
Lest anyone accuse the site of “cherry picking,” it provided the last 172 years of climate data and found only a one-half degree warming trend per century.
SHOW SECOND GRAPH
Climate experts of another type, those hand-picked by the United Nations, will release Monday what is claimed to be the definitive guide to “halting global warming,” in a report ordering how societies and economies must completely transform themselves to make sure we have a “livable” future.
The irony of course is that under the U.N.’s version of a livable future, there will be far fewer living creatures on the planet exhaling carbon dioxide.
Breitbart reports that the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is responsible for this auspicious report.
AFP reports that the U.N. panel published the first two installments earlier this year in a trilogy of scientific assessments spewing doom and gloom about the planet.
As noted by Breitbart, the third report will outline what to do about it.
One thing you can be assured is on the list of pre-ordained solutions to the non-problem of climate change is higher prices for everything, including fuel for your car and home heating.
In fact, U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres has already said that people must accept higher fuel prices in order to save the planet.
Guterres last week appointed a panel led by Canada’s former environment minister to ensure private companies obey climate directives with “every business, investor, city, state and region” targeted for compliance by the globalist body, as Breitbart News reported.
Guterres said Friday when he announced the plan:
“Governments have the lion’s share of responsibility to achieve net-zero emissions by mid-century,” adding this was particularly true for the Group of 20 major emerging and industrialized economies that account for 80 percent of greenhouse gas emissions.
Translation: The U.S. and Western Europe must dramatically scale back their standards of living as the wealth gets redistributed globally on the backs of the American middle class. That’s always how it works when you follow the policy recommendations of the U.N., which both major political parties in the U.S. right now are intent on doing.
Patrick Wood, the renown expert on the globalist technocracy movement, responded to the Breitbart report as follows:
“It’s a perfect extortion racket: Obey us and do what we say or Mother Earth will take away your future and you will kill all future generations on the earth. The traditional extortion only said, ‘Pay us every week or your business will burn down.’ Of course, this is a crime but the U.N. gets away with the threats and nobody blinks an eye.”
The Conservative Treehouse is reporting that the ruling elites in Brussels are planning to trigger 5 billion euros in punitive sanctions against Hungary because the citizens of that country had the audacity to re-elect as their prime minister a candidate who wasn’t approved by the EU Commission.
That’s right, Viktor Orban, who opposes transgenderizing young school children and actually believes in protecting Hungary’s borders against illegal immigration, was not allowed to be elected by his people, according to EU dictates. So, the EU will now set about destroying Hungary’s economy.
According to Euro News:
“The European Commission has notified Hungary that it is triggering the conditionality mechanism over rule of law breaches, opening the door to financial sanctions.”
Wars have been fought over less than this, and it seems the EU may be driving Hungary straight into the waiting arms of Russia.
Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL) got into a heated exchange Tuesday with Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin during a House Armed Services Committee hearing on the defense budget for the 2023 fiscal year.
As reported by American Military News, the congressman told Austin he was “embarrassed by your leadership.”
Gaetz blasted Austin for placing increased focus on diversity training within the military, as well as a Feb. 16 lecture at National Defense University that draws from author Thomas Piketty’s book “Time For Socialism.”
Take a look at that exchange between the congressman from Florida and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin.
Billionaire investor Ray Dalio is warning that the US economy is headed for 'stagflation' similar to that of the 1970s.
'I think that most likely what we're going to have is a period of stagflation. And then you have to understand how to build a portfolio that's balanced for that kind of an environment,' Dalio told Yahoo Finance in an interview published on Monday.
Stagflation is defined as a period of high inflation paired with an economic slowdown and rising unemployment -- an unusual combination that the U.S. faced in the 1970s, when oil crises and failed monetary policy stunned the economy.
“The past is a guide to what's happening now,” Dalio, the founder of Bridgewater Associates, told Yahoo Finance, adding, “The environment that we're in is beginning to be very much like that of the 1970s.”
Inflation is running at its highest level in 40 years, with the consumer price index hitting a 7.9 percent annual rate in February and the Biden administration openly blamed its own policy of Russia sanctions for coming severe food shortages. As if on cue, World Economic Forum founder and director Klaus Schwab, speaking to the World Government Summit in Dubai last week, also warned that global food shortages will soon descend upon the world.
The Daily Mail reports that the Biden administration will send 10 ultra-powerful Switchblade 600 kamikaze drones to Ukraine as part of a newly-unveiled $300 million military assistance package.
The 50-pound drones can fly 24 miles, “loiter” above a target for 40 minutes before flying into them at 115 mph and exploding using special armor-piercing warheads that can destroy a tank.
They're controlled by a tablet-style device which can be pre-programmed or operated manually, according to Bloomberg.
News of the donation to Ukraine was announced by the Pentagon Friday, with the Switchblades set to be sourced directly from California-based manufacturer AeroVironment Inc, rather than taken from the U.S. military's own stockpile.
The Switchblade 600s are separate from the $800 million aid package the White House announced for Ukraine last month.
That previous package included 100 of the Switchblade 300 series. They are somewhat less powerful but still lethal. Weighing just 5.5 pounds each, they can fly about six miles and loiter over a target for up to 15 minutes before attacking at a speed of 100 mph.
In another sign that things are escalating toward a wider war in Europe, more than 120 Russian diplomats have been expelled from across Europe as the continent prepares fresh sanctions over the alleged massacre of civilians in Bucha.
Spain, Italy, Denmark and Sweden joined Germany and France in expelling diplomats they accused of spying for the Russian state - with more than 120 kicked out of embassies in Europe within a 48 hour period, the Daily Mail reports.
This tit for tat comes as EU commission president Ursula von der Leyen announced Tuesday a fresh round of sanctions against Russia - including a ban on coal imports worth more than 3 billion euros per year to the Kremlin.
The province of Saskatchewan in Canada will hold off on implementing a digital identification system after a public backlash.
LifeSite reports that while there were multiple reasons cited for delaying the system’s rollout, two of the factors were unfavorable polling and pushback from both the public and provincial legislators.
Jim Reiter, the minister responsible for SaskBuilds, the division behind the digital ID card, said: “We just thought we’ve got an opportunity here to review what other governments are doing with this, and so we decided not to proceed right now. There were enough people raising concerns that obviously you have to make that a factor. But it certainly wasn’t the only one.”
Chief among the “concerns” is how the system would violate personal privacy.
There were also questions about whether the system was actually part of a larger overall agenda, touted by the World Economic Forum, to digitize humanity and make it impossible to participate in certain functions within society if you did not have the digital ID.
Provincial legislator Nadine Rivers asked during the questioning period in the legislature:
“Mr. Speaker, people want to know who the government is working with to implement an actual mass digital ID system that will link all of our personal information to one source.”
She did not get a clear answer.
According to a government-commissioned poll, just 42 percent of respondents in the province were even “somewhat comfortable” with a digital “photo ID verification,” with only 25 percent saying they were “extremely comfortable” with the idea.
In the United States, as we’ve previously reported here at Worldview Report, at least 21 states have either implemented or signaled they intend to implement, the same SMART Card system.

But so far, no American politicians are demanding answers to difficult questions about that system and how it could be abused. And, as you can see from this map, nearly half of those 21 states have Republican governors, including Utah, South Carolina, Arizona, Virginia, West Virginia, Oklahoma and Mississippi.
An Army captain who filed criminal charges against Commanding General Patrick Donahoe of Fort Benning, Georgia, for mandating non-FDA approved vaccines has been admitted to Fort Benning’s hospital for what they’re deeming a mental health “crisis.”
Take a look at this video report:
One source told the Gateway Pundit:
“This Captain filed criminal charges against the commanding general at Fort Benning due to the General pushing non-licensed vaccines. Instead of investigating, the officials reported the Captain to the same people the Captain was filing charges against! So they retaliated against him by ordering a mental evaluation where they asked him about January 6th and his thoughts on the election.”
Now the Captain is being held in a mental ward for filing his complaint.
According to Gateway Pundit’s sources, the Captain is of sound mind and has complied and not been violent in any way, adding:
“The chain of command, all the way from the commanding general Major General Patrick Donahoe on down, has weaponized the mental health system on Fort Benning to remove this Captain from his family and silence him in his pursuit of accountability for the criminal behavior of the installation’s commanding general.”
Three Republican-led states Monday announced they have filed a lawsuit to stop the Biden administration from lifting the Trump-era, public health order known as Title 42, which kept illegal immigrants and others out of the U.S. during the pandemic, according to a report from Just The News.
Attorneys general in Arizona, Louisiana and Missouri filed the suit in U.S. District Court Western District of Louisiana.
President Trump activated the 1940s law near the start of the pandemic as the related COVID-19 death toll soared, citing its authority to keep out people who might bring in and spread the virus.
The suit reads as follows:
"This suit challenges an imminent, man-made, self-inflicted calamity: the abrupt elimination of the only safety valve preventing this administration’s disastrous border policies from devolving into an unmitigated catastrophe.”
The attorneys general argue in the suit – whose defendants include the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – that the termination of the order will result in a number of higher costs for the states, including higher health care costs for illegal migrants infected with COVID-19 and "the presence of much greater numbers of paroled aliens with non-meritorious asylum claims ... ."
Now, for our Worldview Report nightly commentary.
The Democrat Party’s representatives in Washington DC are lost, so lost, reports journalist J.D. Rucker of the Liberty Daily News, that they’ve “lost any remnant of conscience or moral guidance they may have once had.”
Senator Dick Durbin is the latest example of just how depraved the Democrats and their RINO allies have become.
Rucker reports that on Tuesday, Durbin objected to Senator Josh Hawley’s legislation to toughen sentencing against child pornographers.
“It’s one thing to discuss specifics or object to different components of such a bill, but Durbin had the gall to question the motivation behind trying to protect children from predators,” writes Rucker.
So what Senator Durbin is saying there is the same thing Judge Kentanji Brown Jackson has argued in making rulings favorable to child torturers, that because child porn is easier to get ahold of now than it was 20 years ago, we should not take the crime as seriously as we once did and go easy on them when it comes to sentencing of prison time.
Unbelievable that a U.S. Senator would publicly make an argument based on such flawed logic and without any consideration for the children who are victimized by these monsters.
Dick Durbin should resign immediately and seek help. He’s obviously a very sick man.
We hope you enjoyed tonight’s newscast and will join us again tomorrow for the next edition of the Worldview Report. Good night and take care.

In 2016, WVW-TV began to urge our radio and television audience to prepare for increasingly uncertain times such as:
disrupted “just in time” inventory supply chains
massive increase in inflation
biological warfare and terrorism
an EMP attack from China, Russia, Iran, or North Korea
A cyber attack on our critical infrastructure, including power-grid, water utilities and/or the banking industry
Then, 2020 happened with the biological attack on America by Communist China through Covid-19. Finding hamburger meat, a can of soup, pasta, a can of tuna, and other basics became shockingly challenging.
Those who had mocked our organization for calling on our audience to prepare with an emergency food supply were no longer laughing at us. In fact, some of them began to order emergency food from our store.
I have enjoyed Mountain House food on camping trips going back to when I was in high school. I purchased 6 months of food for 5 people in April of 2013 for my family. Three and a half years later, Worldview Weekend became a distributor for Mountain House because we personally know and testify to the quality of the food and understand the need for families to have "food insurance" in an increasingly dangerous world.
Please go to www.wvwtv.com/store
to place your order while we have the inventory or go directly to this link: https://shop.worldviewweekend.com/products/cat/14841
Your purchase of emergency, freeze dried food will not only support your family, but you will also be supporting the continuation of WVW Broadcast Network and all our free radio and television programs through your purchase.
