Good evening and welcome to the Worldview Report.
Zero Hedge reports that Ukrainian soldiers have been filmed alongside depleted uranium ammunition that Britain is supplying to their country for the fight against Russia.
The footage is contained in a documentary the UK Ministry of Defense (MoD) released Sunday as Ukrainian tank crews completed their training.
Britain is donating 14 Challenger 2 tanks to Ukraine together with depleted uranium shells, which Declassified revealed last week.

An MoD spokesperson told the media that the “impact to personal health and the environment from the use of depleted uranium munitions is likely to be low,” which is not an opinion shared by many independent analysts who took a serious look at the use of depleted uranium by U.S. forces in Iraq and Serbia.
The decision to supply the ammunition sparked a furious reaction from the Kremlin, with Vladimir Putin pledging on Saturday to retaliate by moving tactical nuclear weapons into Belarus.
The depleted uranium ammunition seen in the MoD documentary is marked “inert,” suggesting it could be a replica. A blue and silver training shell is visible next to it, an expert told Declassified.
Doug Weir from the Conflict and Environment Observatory said: “The orange and black munition in the video appears to be an inert display version of the UK’s 120mm CHARM3 DU ammunition.”
CHARM3 is a technical term for Britain’s stockpile of depleted uranium shells.
It’s no secret the U.S. dollar is losing its luster among nations around the world.
And with the clear divide that has been created between the East and Western world due to the Russia-Ukraine war, many nations are growing sick and tired of the dollar and are looking to dump it before it depreciates further in value.
The latest to take a swipe at the dollar was the president of Kenya, who urged investors in his country to dump the dollar while they still can.
Last week President William Ruto said wealthy investors will incur losses if they are holding onto a lot of dollars because his administration launched measures that will ensure that demand for foreign currency will lessen in the weeks to follow, as reported by the African news outlet Digital Citizen.
“President Ruto noted that one of these measures involved the State finalizing on an arrangement that will allow oil importers to purchase the commodity using shillings instead of dollars,” the outlet explained. Gas imports account for 30% of the country’s yearly import bill.
Ruto explained that the State is working with the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) to renew the interchange exchange market in order to further address the dollar crunch.
He said during a speech at the Nairobi Securities Exchange (NSE):
“We just concluded a market-driven arrangement in our fuel sector that will see Kenya access all our fuel needs on a deferred six-month credit that will eliminate a demand of USD 500 million dollars every month from this market. I am giving you free advice that those of you who are hoarding dollars, you shortly might go into losses. You better do what you must do because this market is going to be different in a couple of weeks. We have done what we must do as the government to ensure that we ease the burden on people who want to realize their returns in dollars.”
That sounds a little bit like a final warning so the president, Mr. Ruto, can say I told you so, when the crash happens.
In other news, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s government have been cracking down hard on the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, arresting and beating priests and congregants, with many being forcibly removed from their places of worship as the state has been moving to take over the temples as they consolidate the country’s religion. Those churches not fully supporting the continued war have been forcibly silenced, and in many cases, attacked.
The most recent move by the Ukrainian military is forcing the monks, priests and clerics of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church to vacate the oldest monastery, Kiev-Pechersk Lavra, by the end of this month. Kiev-Pechersk Lavra, located in Ukraine’s capital city, is the largest monastery in the country dating back to 1051.
Between 65 and 75 percent of the population of Ukraine are aligned with the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.
Last week the chief of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church along with other clerics tried to negotiate with Zelensky to discuss the shutting down of their churches. The religious leaders were made to wait outside of the Presidential offices for three hours, only to be told that Zelensky would not meet with them and hear their pleas.
A clergyman speaking on the behest of the Diocese of Odessa sent out a warning in multiple languages titled, “The Unity of Orthodoxy is in Danger!” The spokesperson for the church said in his PSA, “Why is the World Orthodox Church not responding to the crisis and enmity between the Orthodox Christians of Ukraine and simply remaining silent, taking the pose of the ostrich?”
The clergyman frustratedly called out to other Orthodox churches around the world to stand united and come to their aid, and not turn a blind eye to the destruction and persecution of their faith.
The Diocese wrote in a statement accompanying the video:
“If we think adequately about the crisis in Ukrainian Orthodoxy, then we can safely say that this is the most test for all world Orthodoxy.
“If one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; if one member is glorified, all the members rejoice with it. And you are the body of Christ, and individually members,” the apostle Paul tells us.
“How should an Orthodox Christian, who is in different parts of the world, react when he sees the beating of believers, how people who call themselves Orthodox Christians drive other Orthodox out of churches, while beating them and seizing their churches, when monks are driven out of their cells?
“After all, it’s a shame. If the world unitedly responded to the war in Ukraine with help, then the Orthodox world, looking at the enmity between Christians in Ukraine, does not react in any way. Silence.
“Silence betrays God! While we are silent, we testify that there is no unity in Orthodoxy.”
Angel Fournier Rodriguez, Cuba’s most successful rower in history, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on Thursday, March 16 in Texas where he had recently moved. He was 35.

The news of his sudden passing was announced by World Rowing, which read, “World Rowing is saddened to hear of the passing of Cuban rower Angel Fournier Rodriguez.”
“Fournier Rodriguez was a multiple-time World Cup medalist, Pan Am Champion, and 2 time Olympian”
“We wish to extend our condolences to Angel’s family and the Cuban Federation,” the post concluded.
No details have been released on the cause of death.
A Southwest Airlines pilot became incapacitated shortly after taking off from Las Vegas last week.
Pilot Josh Yoder reported in a March 22nd tweet: “I’m being notified by passengers on a Southwest flight departing Las Vegas that the captain became incapacitated soon after takeoff this morning. He was removed from the flight deck and replaced by a non-Southwest pilot who was commuting on that flight. This is now the fifth pilot incapacitation that I’m aware of in the past two weeks. I will post more details as they become available.”
A top official in Joe Biden’s administration recently told Congress that, when it comes to Covid, “natural immunity is not something we believe in.”
Gil Cisneros, Biden’s undersecretary of defense for personnel and readiness, made the statement while arguing the case for vaccine mandates for members of the U.S. military.
According to Slay News, Cisneros made the claim shortly after a meta-study by the prestigious journal The Lancet showed prior infection protects people at least as well, and most of the time better, than vaccination.
The armed forces will instead continue to push service members to take the COVID-19 vaccine “and boosters,” Cisneros declared.
He continued by denying an inspector general’s report that officials reviewed Christians’ requests for religious exemptions only 12 minutes before dismissing them.
After Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) raised the U.K. study during the congressional hearing, Cisneros replied:
“We don’t know about natural immunity there, as far as how it works and how effective it is. There’s no good evidence and the research is still going on as to how we need to progress with this. But as for right now, natural immunity is not something we believe in for this, and so we are still moving forward.”
“We choose science over fiction!” Biden told voters on the campaign trail in August 2019. “We choose truth over facts!”
Cisneros confirmed the Biden administration will extend its insistence on vaccination.
“The department continues to encourage service members and civilian employees to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and boosters,” said Cisneros, who is also chief diversity and inclusion officer tasked with “ensuring the workforce is representative and inclusive.”
He said Biden’s vaccine-centered “policies continue to succeed at protecting our people and the nation’s security.”
Only a “small fraction” of service members refused to receive the COVID-19 vaccine “and approximately 8,100 were subsequently separated” from their employment involuntarily, Cisneros said.
Another top Biden official went before the Senate this week and got his lunch handed to him by Senator Ted Cruz.
We’re not always the biggest fans of Senator Cruz but you gotta hand it to him, he knows how to cross examine a witness and never lets him weasel out of answering a question.
Take a look at how he handled Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

Speaking of the Biden administration, the head honcho in the White House seems to have lost his marbles.
Not only did the occupant of the highest office in the land start off his comments about Monday’s mass shooting at a Nashville Christian school by talking about his favorite ice cream, thoroughly embarrassing himself and everyone in the room, but just a few days before that he let loose was this gem.
The unmistakable sound of nervous laughter.
Walt Disney Company began laying off 7,000 in a letter sent to employees Monday, as CEO Bob Iger works to save the company some $5.5 billion.
Several major divisions of the company - Disney Entertainment, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, and corporate - will be impacted, according to a person familiar with the matter. The layoffs will also affect Disney workers across the globe, and not just in the United States.
Iger had previously announced the layoffs throughout the company after he took back over as CEO in November.
The cuts come after the company reported profits of $23.5 billion, which slightly exceeded analysts' expectations of $23.4 billion. However, the company's stock price has sunk over 30 percent in the past year, as it faces controversy over previous CEO Bob Chapek's disastrous wading into the culture wars.
Disney also took a drubbing in its public perception after Ron DeSantis officially took control of Disney's Reedy Creek Improvement district in a move that will give him the power to select the board and force them to pay $700 million in taxes and debts.
Phillip Todd, a staffer of Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), was attacked in Washington, D.C., over the weekend. His uncle, Tim Todd, reported that Phillip suffered a life-threatening “deep knife wound to the head” and injuries to the abdomen, skull, brain, and lungs. His wounds required surgery.
Tim requested prayer on Facebook, stating: “Please continue to pray” for Phillip. “Doctors are concerned about possible seizures for the next month resulting from the deep knife wound to the head.” He added, “Phillip is resting well.”

Police officers arrested Phillip’s attacker, Glynn Neal, following Saturday’s attack. Authorities report that Neal was released from prison just one day before he launched his despicable knife attack.
Reportedly, Neal was sentenced to 76 months in prison for “compelling an individual to live a life of prostitution without his or her consent” and “threat to kidnap and to injure a person.”
Our prayers go out to Mr. Todd for a full recovery.
And so far, we haven’t heard a single word from Joe Biden and the Democrats calling for knife control.
Time now for our Worldview Report commentary.
At a time when some have moved to defund and demoralize the police, officers with the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department are being hailed as heroes for stopping the heavily armed elementary school shooter just 14 minutes after firing the first shots, and the department received a 911 call.
This is in sharp contrast to how police handled some of the other recent school shootings.
And it’s also important to note that this Christian school with an enrollment of 200 students did not employ a single school resource officer. Stopping the shooter fell entirely on the Nashville police.
In response to multiple requests for disclosure, the Nashville Police Department released bodycam video of the events that unfolded at Covenant Christian Elementary School on Monday morning.
The shooter, a 28-year-old female who in recent years identified as a trans male, killed three children and three adults before being confronted by officers on the school’s second floor.
Surveillance video shows the killer shooting through the locked front doors of the school.
While searching downstairs rooms, officers heard gunshots on the second floor. Courageously, video shows them sprinting up the stairs.
Less than 30 seconds later, officers used lethal force to stop the shooter.
SHOW VIDEO (clip first 4 minutes or so)
That’s what professional police work looks like, folks. They rushed in, methodically checked each room until they found the shooter and then put her down. No hesitation. No discussing it amongst themselves. They knew what to do and they did it. Hopefully this school and any others out there learn that they also must have at least one trained school resource officer. We live in a different time. No one is safe anywhere. The more armed patriots we have who are properly trained in firearms the better off we will all be in such a time as this.
That’s why Joe Biden and his administration are a disgrace. Sitting back, whining about the lack of gun control laws, as if any law could have stopped this deeply troubled and mentally disturbed 28-year-old woman from doing what she did in what was apparently a gun-free zone with no teacher and not even a school resource officer to protect the kids. Let us all learn from this. And may God be with the families of the victims. If not for these brave officers, many more could have been killed that day.
