All these stories and more when the Worldview Report begins, right now!
Good evening and welcome to the Worldview Report.
Starting off tonight…We reported last night about the Durham Report’s conclusions that the FBI and Justice Department never had any evidence to even open an investigation into the Trump-Russia hoax. This should be the scandal of the century in American politics, bigger than Watergate by far. Yet the mainstream corporate media brushed it aside and treated it as a one-day back-page news event. Here one day, gone the next. The Biden White House has refused to as much as comment on it.
Here's House Speaker Kevin McCarthy speaking to Maria Bartiromo about it.

Accountability? What accountability? Democrats don’t know the meaning of the word. They can work their dirty tricks with impunity because they know they have the entire mainstream media and the administrative state to give them cover.
The state-level campaign against a U.S. digital dollar made its first foray into established law with Governor Ron DeSantis’ signature on Florida’s effort to block the use of virtual government-backed money in business transactions.
Depending who you ask, this is either a brilliant move to get out ahead of the Fed’s plan to introduce a digital dollar, or just a PR stunt that’s unlikely to stop any such move.
According to a report by CoinDesk.com, the Florida governor’s highly publicized banning of central bank digital currencies, or CBDCs, as “government overreach and woke corporate monitoring” may not amount to much on paper. Legal experts in this facet of commercial law told CoinDesk the state’s effort is unlikely to hold up in court.
“They didn't ban anything,” said Carla Reyes, an assistant professor at Southern Methodist University’s Dedman School of Law, who has done work in both digital assets law and the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) that Florida is focused on. “The law does exactly zero of the things that it says that it does.”
The state’s new tweak “expressly prohibits the use of a federally adopted CBDC by excluding it from the definition of money within Florida’s Uniform Commercial Code,” according to the governor’s office. From introduction to his signature last week took just 43 days.
DeSantis, during his May 12 signing of the law, claimed it as the start of a potential multi-state push from Republican state lawmakers to counter a digital dollar well before the federal government decides whether to issue it or not. North Carolina has also been considering a measure to oppose a U.S. CBDC, and South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem recently vetoed a bill to update its UCC in a way she argued would have allowed for CBDCs and “a potential future overreach by the federal government.”
“We’re on offense in the state of Florida,” DeSantis said at a press conference, standing behind a sign reading “Big Brother’s Digital Dollar,” referencing George Orwell’s 1984 novel of total government control. The new law – effective in July – declared digital dollars won’t be considered money in the state’s version of the commercial code.
The vaunted Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition in 2023 will feature transgender singer Kim Petras on one of its four covers in yet another affront to biological women.
The magazine revealed Monday that Petras is among four cover models on this year’s swimsuit issue, along with 81-year-old housekeeping maven Martha Stewart.
According to anti-trans activist Oli London, himself a former transgender person, Petras “underwent gender reassignment surgery aged 16 and has since gone on to become a successful pop singer.”
The titles of this person’s songs are so vulgar and obscene that we can’t repeat them on the air.
Petras’ appearance on the cover immediately became a subject of controversy on social media, with some mocking the editors for cramming the trans agenda down America’s throats.
SHOW TWEET FROM BABYLON BEE
The Babylon Bee lampooned the development with a satirical article claiming a dad punished his son by making him peruse the issue.
The Blaze TV also chimed in.
Blaze TV host Chad Blather, tweeted “Sports Illustrated putting a trans on the cover of their swimsuit issue? When it comes to destroying your brand and SI says ‘hold my beer,’ gee I wonder what beer they’re drinking?”
Yeah, and what are they smoking?
The Conservative majority U.S. Supreme Court handed left-leaning lawmakers in Illinois a temporary victory on Wednesday—ruling that the State’s ban on so-called assault weapons will remain in effect while lower courts debate the issue.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit is currently deliberating the case.
Per usual, the Court did not explain its decision, which was unanimous.
The Court’s decision was not surprising—the Supreme Court rarely engages in cases yet to be resolved in lower courts. However, the decision disappointed many, including the Illinois gun shop owner who requested an injunction to stay the State’s ban, which went into effect in January.
The ruling allows the Illinois law to remain unchanged while lower courts argue the ban’s legality.
A citizen journalist has exposed the policies of Minnesota’s St. Thomas University that allow transgender women – meaning men pretending to be women – to live in dorm rooms with female students, without telling the females they were rooming with a biological male.
Zoe Chang, director of residence for the Catholic college, is shown on video admitting that transgender students go to the front of the line and are also not made to pay the full student-housing fees.
They sent the video over to James O’Keefe at OMG News, earned $1,000 and exposed St. Thomas for their hidden policies and woke agenda.
Take a look at the undercover video.

So, it’s important to set these trans students up for success, the college administrator says, justifying why they’re charged less in housing fees.
And we wonder why more and more young people are deciding to go the transgender route. In today’s warped American society, it pays.
But the big news there is it’s all done on the sneak. The female students at St. Thomas are not even being told in these cases that their roommate is actually a guy.
And by the way, it’s nice to see James O’Keefe back doing his thing and breaking news.
The Daily Mail reports that a prestigious American university, home to a Joe Biden-sponsored think tank where the former vice-president left classified documents, raked in more than $100 million from Chinese donors, leaked emails show.
Financial records obtained by the watchdog group Americans for Public Trust show the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement accepted millions of dollars in donations from communist China.
The jaw-dropping sum of $105 million, nearly double what had been reported previously, was received from businessmen close to the Chinese Communist Party in a recent three-year period.
This is the latest scandal to plague the University of Pennsylvania after it was reported that Joe Biden had left a treasure trove of classified documents on the campus following his two terms as Barack Obama's vice president.
Caitlin Sutherland, the executive director of APT which uncovered the figures, said it would cast further shadows over the Biden family's business dealings.
She told the Daily Mail:
“Unfortunately, they don't break out where the money flowed once UPenn received the contributions.”
She said the filings show “the incredible volume of support the university has received from foreign sources.”
There are several donors who forked over cash that are linked to past Hunter Biden business deals.
They include a lead investor and a board member of a company that landed an arrangement facilitated by a Hunter-tied investment company.
Cathay Fortune, a private equity firm that has a controlling interest in China Molybdenum - now called CMOC Group Limited - gave $1 million to UPenn in 2019.
CMOC purchased a cobalt mine in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in 2016 with the help of an investment company formed by Hunter Biden in 2013.
The Wall Street Journal reported that the president's eldest son held a 10% stake in the firm he founded, BHR, as recently as 2020.
In 2018 and 2019, China Merchant Bank donated over $5.5 million to UPenn, the records show.
The bank described UPenn's prestigious Wharton School of Business as a “strategic partner.”
The vice dean of Wharton's Global Initiative has also called the bank a “long-standing partner,” according to Beijing mouthpiece China Daily.
Universities across the country have for years been promoting the concept of global citizenship, which many argue is contributing to the growing anti-American sentiment in academia.
Nicholas Giordano, a political science professor at Suffolk Community College, joined Jan Jeffcoat, a reporter for the CBS News affiliate in Austin, Texas, on Wednesday to break it down.
Giordano said global citizenship presents a “big problem” for America. The U.S. Department of Education recently released the numbers for civic proficiency within the United States, which reveals that student proficiency in basic American history is appallingly low.
The professor said, “We're seeing the lowest levels in history so it's clear the students don't have a good grasp on American history and civics, what our government is all about and what's their civic obligation within our society. Now, I don't know a single country out there that could survive when the majority of people within the country don't know the country's origins, how it came about and the role of government.”
Giordano argues that while we have people from different places that come together, we don’t have 2,000 years of history, culture and traditions together.
“This push for global citizenship doesn't make any sense. I'm telling students that they're part of the global community when they don't even understand the nation or state that they come from. They don't even understand the basics and what it's doing is meant to devalue the American identity.”
Here’s another problem that America and the West are up against that nobody seems to want to address. Plummeting birth rates.
Falling birth rates represent the biggest threat to western society as native populations fall below replacement rate levels, according to Conservative MP Miriam Cates.
Cates made the comments during the National Conservatism Conference in London.
The MP made the argument that the greatest challenge facing the west was not climate change, cultural Marxism or Russia and China, but the “failure to deliver” babies.
Here’s a clip from her speech.
None of our philosophical musings mean anything if we don’t reproduce. That’s a truth bomb that needs to come out from the shadows.
U.S.-China relations continue to melt down. Most recently over a pending arms deal between Washington and Taiwan.
China’s People’s Liberation Army responded to U.S. plans to provide Taiwan with $500 million in unprecedented military aid and reports that said hundreds of U.S. troops have been deployed to the island, warning it will “firmly crush attempts at external interference.”
Zero Hedge reports that Taiwan’s defense minister recently said that Washington and Taiwan are in talks about the U.S. providing $500 million in “free” weapons. The arms will be sent using the Presidential Drawdown Authority, the same authority Joe Biden has been using to arm Ukraine, which allows him to ship weapons straight from U.S. military stockpiles. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin confirmed on Tuesday that the Pentagon plans to send arms to Taiwan using the PDA soon.
Since Washington severed diplomatic relations with Taipei in 1979, the U.S. has sold weapons to Taiwan but never provided them free of charge. Taiwanese media also recently reported that about 200 U.S. troops have been deployed to Taiwan to assist in training, marking the largest known U.S. military presence in Taiwan in decades.
According to a PLA press release, PLA spokesman Col. Tan Kefe said attempts “of the U.S. side to turn back the wheel of history on the Taiwan question are absolutely intolerable.”
When asked about the aid and the troop deployment, Tan said “the U.S. has stepped up its military collusion with the DPP (Democratic Progressive Party) authorities by strengthening military contacts and upgrading substantive relations between the two sides, which has shaken the foundation of the China-U.S. relations and undermined the peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait.”
Tan said that the issue of Taiwan is the “first red line that must not be crossed in China-U.S. relations,” something Chinese President Xi Jinping told President Biden when the two leaders met face-to-face in Bali last November. Beijing views Washington’s recent efforts to increase support for Taiwan as an affront to the U.S.’s one-China policy.
Tan noted that Washington severing diplomatic relations with Taipei, ending its Mutual Defense Treaty with the island, and withdrawing troops were “the preconditions for the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and the U.S.”
Sri Lanka is poised to decriminalize homosexuality.
The bill presently in Sri Lanka’s parliament seeks to change the penal code to create rights even for children as young as 16 to privately and publicly express behavior related homosexuality.
This change in law, as with the attempts to legalize the killing of the unborn through abortion, are driven by Western governments and their representatives in the United Nations, specifically the UN Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) and the UN Human Rights Council (HRC), reports LifeSite News in a recent op-ed.
This bill, once enacted, will allow LGBTQs to express their orientation in their public conduct, “and it will become a violation of their rights, and illegal for citizens of good conscience, to object to such acts, even when they occur in the presence of children,” LifeSite writes.
Further, such behavior, states of life, and the associated ideology will become normalized in the culture, through the media and educational material provided in schools for children. So-called “marriages” between people of the same sex will proceed, and those living in such arrangements will adopt innocent children and form “families,” the outlet warns.
Legalized transgenderism will enable men certified as women to enter female bathrooms and women’s other private spaces and compete with women legally in sport and for social and employment opportunities set aside for them.
In other words, Sri Lanka, under pressure from the U.S., will follow the same path toward degeneracy that America has taken over the last decade or so, a worrisome thought when you consider how the Bible says God judges a person or nation that corrupts the minds of children. I think Jesus said it would be better to have a millstone tied around your neck and be tossed into the sea than to be found guilty of abusing children.
Time now for our Worldview Report Commentary.
Joe Biden announced Tuesday that Dr. Monica Bertagnolli will be his intended nominee for director of the National Institutes of Health, or NIH.
Bertagnolli has a BIG PFIZER CONNECTION.
From 2015 through 2021, she received more than 116 grants from Pfizer, totaling $291 million. This amount made up 89% of all her research grants, according to Open Payments, a national transparency program under the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services that collects and publishes information about financial relationships between drug and medical device companies and certain healthcare providers.
She was also the 2015 recipient of The Charlie – an award sponsored by PFIZER AND THE ALLIANCE FOR CLINICAL TRIALS IN ONCOLOGY.
Interestingly, the White House left the Pfizer connection out of its announcement of her nomination. This should come as a shock to no one, as this White House has become expert at manipulating public opinion through propaganda.
Due to her previous ties and experience, we can expect that Dr. Bertagnolli will represent the viewpoints and priorities of the pharmaceutical industry. This is how agencies are captured, and the deep state is empowered. This is why when Donald Trump was president, he faced an intransigent federal bureaucracy, because Barack Obama and now Joe Biden have stacked the agencies with progressives and corporatists at the senior executive level.
Republicans must do a better job of cleaning out these agencies if they ever hope to truly change the way Washington works.
That does it for this edition of the Worldview Report. Thank you for tuning in and for supporting this viewer-supported broadcast.
Until next time, I’m Brannon Howse. Take care.
