Good evening and welcome to the Worldview Report. I’m Brannon Howse.
I’m sure most of you remember the Obama phones passed out in Democrat-run urban areas back in the day.
Back then it was not widely known that smartphones not only offer people the convenience of mobile communication 24/7 but they also allow for 24/7 surveillance of the user.
So it’s not a surprise that the Biden White House is handing out smartphones to illegal aliens who cross the southern border and they are very transparent about the reason. It’s not so the illegals can surf the internet and make phone calls. It’s so they can be tracked and traced everywhere they go in the country, and supposedly to make sure they attend their immigration hearings. That last part is debatable as the Biden administration does not seem interested in making sure any illegal stands before a judge and has to prove why they deserve asylum in the U.S.
When asked at last Wednesday’s press briefing how handing out smartphones would deter more illegal migration, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said “we need to take steps to ensure that we know where individuals are and we can track — and we can check in with them.”
According to a report by the New American, Psaki went on to describe that instead of keeping the border-crossers detained, the administration is using “three unique forms of technology to monitor participants enrolled in the program.”
The first, according to the New American, is telephonic, which uses an immigrant’s voice “to create a biometric voice print during the enrollment process. And when the participant has a check-in call, their voice is compared to the voice print,” said Psaki.
Another tracking technology is an app called SmartLink, continued Psaki. That app enables monitoring of the participant via smartphone or tablet, using facial-recognition technology to establish and verify his or her identity.
Psaki concluded that providing illegal immigrants with smartphones at the taxpayers’ expense is “part of our effort, as individuals [coming] into the United States and individuals who are entering who will proceed to immigration proceedings, to monitor and track where they are.”
Psaki said 80 percent of illegals that DHS released at the border “have either received a notice to appear or are still within their window to report.”
Psaki attributed that “success” to the cellphone tracking system.
But her statement, as the New American pointed out, contradicts data from the Department of Homeland Security. According to numbers disclosed to Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin), 47,705 of the more than 100,000 illegals who were released from Border Patrol custody at the southern border in 2021 between March 21 and August 31 and instructed to self-report to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) within 60 days have failed to check in. That’s a 48 percent failure rate.
For over a week now China’s communist regime has locked down the nation’s largest city, Shanghai, which is home to 26 million people.
This has been a full, rigidly enforced lockdown. Citizens of Shanghai cannot even leave their homes to get essential items.
Although there were some signs that the rules might be eased, conditions there this past weekend were getting more grave by the day as people were going without food and medical care while forbidden to leave their homes. Some were starving or getting dehydrated. Riots were breaking out. When people living under a regime as brutal as China’s get out in the streets and riot, you know they are desperate and feeling they have nothing to lose.
Don’t kid yourself. This is exactly where many Western leaders want to take us, including many in the United States like Dr. Fauci. They would love nothing more than another round of lockdowns. Just in time for November’s midterm elections.
Former CBS News reporter Lara Logan said she was forced out of Fox Nation after she publicly criticized White House COVID-19 advisor Anthony Fauci last year.
“I was definitely pushed out,” Logan said in a recent interview with radio host Eric Metaxas regarding what had happened at the network. “I mean, there is no doubt about that. They don’t want independent thinkers. They don’t want people who follow the facts regardless of the politics.”
Logan also said that hit pieces done by legacy news outlets have hurt her prospects. “If they Google you, and they see a Washington Post or New York Times hit piece on you, well then they don’t want anything to do with you, right? Oh well, we can’t hire you for our event or we can’t employ you or whatever else.
“I’ve always said I don’t belong to any party. I don’t belong to any one side,” she said. “I really don’t care about media organizations who for years have reported false stories. Why should I care what they have to say?”
Logan was referring to a Fox News interview in November when she caught heat after criticizing the unelected lifelong bureaucrat Fauci, calling him to task for his unconstitutional, freedom-chilling policy recommendations during the COVID-19 pandemic. The rest of the media at that time had elevated Fauci to near god-like status but she refused to join in the Fauci worship, stating on live TV that:
“What you see on Dr. Fauci, this is what people say to me, that he doesn’t represent science to them. He represents Josef Mengele … the Nazi doctor who did experiments on Jews during the Second World War and in the concentration camps.”
Some Jewish groups criticized her for the comments, and she was dropped by talent agency UTA.
After the Fauci remark, she has not appeared on Fox News since.
Moderna Inc said on Friday it was recalling 764,900 doses of its COVID-19 vaccine due to a foreign body being found in one vial made by its contract manufacturer Rovi in Europe.
The recall was announced after a vial was found contaminated by a foreign substance.
Moderna said the lots being recalled were distributed in Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain and Sweden in January, according to Reuters.
The drugmaker said the contamination was found in just one vial, and it was recalling the whole lot out of “an abundance of caution.” It did not disclose what was found in the vial.
A national shortage of baby formula brought on by supply-chain disruptions has forced U.S. retailers such as Walgreens to ration the product.
According to a report in the Daily Mail, Walgreens – the second-largest pharmacy store chain in the United States behind CVS – said Friday that amid the supply-chain crunch, it is limiting customers to three infant and toddler formula product purchases at a time. This is occurring at all of Walgreens’ 9,021 U.S. store locations.

A company spokesperson told DailyMail.com that the restrictions, already in effect, stem from an “increased demand and various supplier issues,” as it was revealed that 29 percent of all top-selling formulas are out of stock at stores across the nation.
Parents are starting to panic about the shortage. Roughly three-quarters of infants in the U.S. receive baby formula during their first six months.
Samantha Modely of Memphis told local outlet WREG-TV Thursday:
“I would normally buy four to six cans at a time to get us through the month and I would have to limit that to two.”
“My friend is about to have a baby in August, and I can’t imagine being worried about whether you’d be able to go to the local grocery store and grab when you needed it,” the mom said.
“We've noticed it being difficult to find maybe a couple months ago — two, three months ago — and then just recently we can't find it,” San Francisco resident Irene Anhoeck told CBS News of the shortage, which has affected stores across the country.
“We've tried all the local Targets. We checked Costco, Costco online, Walgreens, Long's,” Anhoeck said. “Can't find it anywhere.”
Since December of 2020, mayors in cities across Germany and Austria, all of them under 60, are suddenly dropping dead of unexplained causes.
According to a report by the RAIR Foundation, people are starting to ask questions about whether these elected officials were all suddenly overwhelmed by job stress, or could there be another reason for so many “fit and healthy” politicians dying?
On December 12, 2020, 41-year-old CSU Mayor Dirk Rosenbauer collapsed during a municipal council meeting and later died in a hospital in Coburg. The headline read, “At only 41 years old – mayor from Bavaria collapses during council meeting – dead”.
He was reportedly fit and very healthy, always walked his dog and played handball with friends.
The headlines have been filled with similar cases for over a year.

The “Freie Bremer” channel on Telegram compiled a list of several such incidents, with at least 15 known deaths in Germany and Austria during the last 15 months. It’s important to note that the number of unreported cases could be much higher.
Zero Hedge reports that commodities prices could rise by 40 percent or more and will likely continue to go higher, according to a note from JPMorgan Chase from April 7, as raw materials hit a record high last month following Western sanctions on Russia over its invasion of Ukraine.
Russia is a main supplier for up to 10 percent of global energy production and about 20 percent of global wheat production.
The commodities affected include oil, which is already up 33 percent from the same month the previous year, while natural gas has gone up by 65 percent since the invasion.
Copper is up by 7 percent from 2021, and wheat has soared 33 percent. Lumber is also going up.
So when will this inflationary spiral play out?
Zolton Pozsar, a Credit Suisse analyst, says we are about to transition from a financialized global economy into a commoditized global economy.
In an article titled “The Commodity Revolution Begins,” Zolton writes:
The consequence is a final battle in the financial war which has been brewing for decades. You do not sanction the world’s most important source of energy exports and the marginal supplier of a wide range of commodities and raw materials, including grains and fertilizers, without damaging everyone but the intended target. Worse still, the intended target has in China an extremely powerful friend, with which Russia is a partner in the world’s largest economic bloc — the Shanghai Cooperation Organization — commanding a developing market of over 40% of the world’s population. That is the future, not the past: the past is Western wokery, punitive taxation, economies dominated by the state and its bureaucracy, anti-capitalistic socialism, and magic money trees to help pay for it all.
Despite this enormous hole in the sanctions net, the West has given itself no political option but to attempt to tighten sanctions even more. But Russia’s response is devastating for the western financial system. In two simple announcements, tying the ruble to gold for domestic credit institutions and insisting that payments for energy will only be accepted in rubles, it is calling an end to the fiat dollar era that has ruled the world from the suspension of Bretton Woods in 1971 to today.
In other words, what Zolton is saying is that the U.S.-NATO policy toward Russia is completely backfiring and will lead to the economic demise of the United States. The financial gamesmanship of the Wall Street bankers is about to be replaced by the commodity gamesmanship of China-Russia. Washington has been completely outmaneuvered by Russia and China. The only question now is whether the economic war between these two kingdoms will lead to a military war.
One of the most hotly contested governor’s races this fall will take place in Georgia, where incumbent Brian Kemp is running neck in neck with David Purdue on the Republican side, the winner of which will face off against the notorious Marxist Stacey Abrams.
According to the latest polling, Stacey Abrams trails Kemp by a 51 to 44 margin and Perdue by 49 to 44 percent margin. Not much difference there. Kemp narrowly beat out Abrams for the governorship in 2018.
Even Georgia’s neighbor to the south, Florida, is getting nervous about the possibility of Abrams turning Georgia completely blue.
Take a look at these video remarks from Ron DeSantis.
Castro to his south and Abrams to his north. That would indeed be a disaster not only for Georgia but the entire South and indeed the nation.
Our neighbor to the north, Canada, continues to slide farther into the abyss of medical tyranny.
In March 2023, Canada will become one of just a few nations that allow medical aid in dying, or MAID, for mental illnesses such as depression, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, schizophrenia, or PTSD.
That’s right: Physician-assisted suicide for patients suffering from mental illness.
Since the 1980s, physician-assisted suicide has been mostly associated with people who have terminal illnesses like cancer, The National Post reported last week.
But, as the progressives always do, now they are pushing the envelope to include doctor-assisted death for mental illness.
Unlike with cancer or other diseases, mental disorders lack “prognostic predictability,” which can make determining suffering near impossible, says Dutch psychiatrist Dr. Sisco van Veen in an interview with the National Post.
With mental illness, he said all doctors really have to go on is the patient’s story.
As Canada moves closer to legalizing doctor-assisted deaths for people with mental illness whose psychological pain has become unbearable to them, “difficult conversations” are ahead, Veen told the National Post.
Dr. Grainne Neilson, past president of the Canadian Psychiatric Association and a Halifax forensic psychiatrist said: “I think there’s going to be lots of uncertainty about how to apply this in March 2023. My hope is that psychiatrists will move cautiously and carefully to make sure MAID is not being used as something instead of equitable access to good care.”
Good luck with that, Canada.
Time now for our Worldview Report nightly commentary.
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has repeatedly claimed that his top security priority is to monitor and prosecute domestic terror threats which, astonishingly, he identified as American citizens who support conservative family values and even parents who attend school board meetings to voice their objections to transgenderism and critical race theory being taught to their young children.
He’s also singled out Americans who don’t buy into the government’s draconian Covid restrictions as potential domestic terrorists.
He has the audacity to target law-abiding Americans even as he’s allowed more than 2 million unvetted migrants, many of them young men of military age, from more than 150 countries to cross illegally into the U.S.
Joe Hoft, in an article at the Gateway Pundit this week, called it straight when he wrote:
“Mad man Mayorkas, was confirmed by all the Democrats and six Republican Senators (Sen. Shelley Capito, R-W.Va., Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, Sen. Dan Sullivan, R-Alaska, Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, and Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah). All of these Republican senators should be primaried out of office in their next elections. The Democrats should be defeated. This vote was a vote against American sovereignty.”
Now Mayorkas is running around the country telling people that domestic terrorists are America’s greatest threat:
According to Hotair.com:
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas delivered a speech to Al Sharpton’s National Action Network conference in New York City on Friday. He told those attending the conference that “the greatest terrorism-related threat that we face in the homeland is the threat of domestic violent extremism.”
Mayorkas dug in a little deeper and blamed social media and other online platforms for an “increase in hate,” specifically naming white supremacists as “the most prominent threat” to the United States. He used the example of bomb threats to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). In recent months there has been an alleged uptick in those threats. He spoke about working with black universities and churches to help them improve security.
Mayorkas lies with impunity. He says anything and goes unchecked. He is allowing potential criminals and terrorists across our border. None of these individuals are being vetted. Then he says that black churches are receiving bomb threats?
The only threat is Alejandro Mayorkas. As Hoft says, “He should be in jail,” locked up for treason.
Thank you for tuning in tonight for the Worldview Report. We’ll be back tomorrow for another edition, starting at 7 p.m. Central, 8 Eastern. Take care and God bless.

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.
