Starting us off tonight, the Internal Revenue Service has hired a private contractor to scoop up personal biometric data on millions of Americans.
The IRS has partnered with a Virginia-based private tech firm that specializes in ID-verification, using biometrics to do so, including facial recognition selfies, fingerprints, and many other things. This data is then used to create or access online accounts with the state agencies and, more recently, the IRS.
The IRS has announced that by the summer of 2022, the only way to log into irs.gov will be through ID.me, reports Zero Hedge reports.
Founded by former Army Rangers in 2010, the McLean-based ID.me has evolved to providing online ID verification services which several states are using to help reduce unemployment and pandemic-assistance fraud.
The service requires applicants to supply a great deal more information than typically requested for online verification schemes, such as scans of their driver’s license or other government-issued ID, or copies of utility or insurance bills.
When an applicant doesn’t have one or more of the above — or if something about their application triggers potential fraud flags — ID.me may require a recorded, live video chat with the person applying for benefits, according to analysts with KrebsOnSecurity.
Apparently, to prove you haven't committed fraud in the states that employ this company's services, you have to agree to turn over your most sensitive biometric data. Now, you will have to do the same in order to review your tax returns at the IRS.
ID.me already operates in 27 states, mostly in the processing of unemployment benefits.
Nikki Hinton, a resident of Florida, told Worldview Report that she ran up against the firm's invasive technology last year when she was collecting unemployment after being laid off in the wake of the pandemic.
She didn't feel comfortable turning over private information to a third-party private contractor.
Hinton believes the data could also be used at some point to cut off benefits to people who refuse the jab.
"Because I didn't comply with their requests for my personal data, my money stopped. I saw the scam a mile away and that's why I reported it to you," Hinton told Worldview Report. "It is all a great, big con job set up to see who is injected and complying so they can cut off income. Plus, they just want to see every penny you have [in your bank account]. Again, ID.me doesn't just require photo ID or, in the IRS' case a selfie. It requires you agreeing to let them collect data on you."
According to KrebsOnSecurity, "if your documents get accepted, ID.me will then prompt you to take a live selfie with your mobile device or webcam. That took several attempts. When my computer’s camera produced an acceptable result, ID.me said it was comparing the output to the images on my driver’s license scans.
"Once that's accepted, Id.me will ask to verify your phone number - and will not accept numbers tied to voice-over-IP services such as Skype or Google Voice."
Next up, Bill Gates wants to punish poor people with a global carbon tax that he says would drive demand for "clean products," many of which he is invested in.
Gates made the proposal at the World Economic Forum conference in Davos, Switzerland, this week.
Gates' eyes light up when he talks about all the money there is to be made by supplying the products that he wants governments to force middle-class people to buy by punishing them with carbon taxes if they don't buy into the plan.
Take a look.
Registration of immunizations in Illinois would change from voluntary to mandatory under a bill Rep. Bob Morgan (D-Highwood) introduced last week.
Critics of HB 4244 include more than 10,000 citizens who have filed opposition slips describing the measure as “asinine,” and “unconstitutional.” Many say they are “disgusted” that lawmakers are even considering the action.
The House committee on Health and Human Services planned to take it up on Wednesday, Jan. 19.
“…Health care providers, physician's designees, or pharmacist's designees shall (rather than may) provide immunization data to be entered into the immunization data registry,” the bill synopsis says. “…The written information and the immunization data exemption forms must include information that the health care provider shall (rather than may) report immunization data to the Department of Public Health to be entered into the immunization data registry. Effective January 1, 2023.”
State Rep. Charlie Meier (R-Okawville), who serves on the Health and Human Services committee, said his office has been flooded with calls and emails opposing the bill.
Meier called the proposal unconstitutional and un-American.
“This is not what you do in a free society,” Meier said. “The State of Illinois should not be forcing healthcare providers, physician's designees, or pharmacist's to report private individual health records to the government.”
The Federal Reserve Board on Thursday released a discussion paper that examines the pros and cons of a potential U.S. central bank digital currency, or CBDC.
The Fed invites comment from the public in the first step in a discussion of whether and how a new digital currency could improve the "safe and effective domestic payments system." The Fed does not reveal its hand in this paper on whether or not it favors any policy to create a digital currency based on blockchain technology.
“We look forward to engaging with the public, elected representatives, and a broad range of stakeholders as we examine the positives and negatives of a central bank digital currency in the United States,” Federal Reserve Chair Jerome H. Powell said.
The paper summarizes the current state of the domestic payments system and discusses the different types of digital payment methods and assets that have emerged in recent years, including stablecoins and other cryptocurrencies. It concludes by examining the potential benefits and risks of a CBDC, and identifies specific policy considerations.
The central banks of more than 65 nations throughout the world have been experimenting with digital currencies that will at some point replace cash. China, Sweden and India are among the nations with the most advanced pilot programs for cashless systems that involve digital-only money.
FBI agents were seen Wednesday at the home and campaign office of Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-Texas), a frequent critic of President Joe Biden.
Photographs shared by local reporters showed agents at the residence in Laredo, Texas, removing bags, bins and at least one computer, the Epoch Times reports.
Federal agents also went to Cuellar’s campaign office.
In a statement to news outlets, the FBI said the bureau “was present in Laredo conducting court-authorized law enforcement activity,” adding that “The FBI cannot provide further comment on an ongoing investigation.”
A Cuellar spokesperson told the media, “Congressman Cuellar will fully cooperate in any investigation. He is committed to ensuring that justice and the law are upheld.”
Cuellar, 66, has represented Texas’s 28th Congressional District since 2005.
The district includes land that touches the U.S.-Mexico border.
Cuellar, considered a moderate, has been a frequent critic of Biden’s lax immigration enforcement policies, which experts say have contributed to the explosion in illegal immigration recorded since Biden took office one year ago.
Under the Democrat, the most illegal immigrant apprehensions at the southwest border were recorded for both a fiscal year and a calendar year.
Biden shortly after being sworn in halted construction of the border wall, curbed use of pandemic-era expulsion powers, and directed officials to end the “Remain in Mexico” program, which had forced many asylum seekers to wait in Mexico for their claims to be heard.
The former White House physician Ronny Jackson reacted to Joe Biden displaying more brain freeze during his second press conference in office Wednesday, demanding that the president immediately undergo a cognitive test.
Jackson is the GOP Congressman representing Texas's third district and former White House physician and retired Navy Rear Admiral.
That display prompted Jackson, the former physician for presidents Obama and Trump, to take to social media:
Summit News reports that Jackson has repeatedly called for Biden to undergo an exam following regular concerning displays.
The doctor recently asserted that the reason Biden has avoided cognitive exams is because he would have “failed miserably,” and his team “didn’t do it because they know, if they do it, you don’t ask questions that you don’t want the answers to.”
Listen to Jackson describe the "elephant in the room" regarding Biden's mental decline.
Canadian truckers opposed to federal Covid-19 vaccine mandates are preparing to converge on Ottawa in a protest expected to draw a convoy of at least 1,600 rigs, according to organizers who spoke with the National Telegraph.
Tamara Lich, working with trucker Chris Barber from Swift Current Saskatchewan, started a fundraising campaign on social media that raised several hundred thousand dollars within days of its ‘GoFundMe’ page launch.
“We have a massive team behind us now. We are going to roll across Canada. They are going to go to Parliament Hill and sit there and protest, peacefully of course until these mandates are lifted,” said Lich, an oil and gas worker from Medicine Hat Alberta.
The mandates, which went into effect January 15th, require unvaccinated Canadian truckers to quarantine and take a COVID-19 test when they re-enter Canada from the U.S.
The new rules also require U.S. truckers to present proof of vaccination in order to cross the border. Many of them continue to decline the shots rather than gain access to Canadian destinations.
This has cut U.S. trucking capacity in half according to the American Trucking Associations, which estimates that approximately 50 percent of U.S. truckers have not accepted the Covid injections.
An estimated 10 percent of Canadian truckers have declined the Covid jabs so far.
Lich says the truckers mounting the challenge are from Vancouver to the Maritimes and include vaccinated and unvaccinated drivers.
She stated that:
"A lot of these drivers do cross the border on a regular basis. My parents run a business and they cross the border all the time. As of Saturday (January 15), they can’t do that. This is going to seriously impact our supply chain, groceries, goods, necessities, but it’s also impacting their livelihoods."
Biden's vaccine mandate on truck drivers entering the U.S. from Canada takes effect January 22.
A statue of President Teddy Roosevelt that has stood in front of the American Museum of Natural History in Manhattan for more than 80 years was hauled away Wednesday under the cover of darkness, reports the New York Post.
The bronze monument depicting the nation’s 26th president on a horse flanked by an African man and a Native American man — which has sparked protests for allegedly glorifying colonialism and racism — was yanked out with a crane just after midnight, leaving behind only its concrete pedestal.
The controversial effigy will be sent to a library in North Dakota on a long-term loan, officials have said.
The $2 million removal, carried out by the museum and the city, comes after the New York City Public Design Commission voted in June to relocate the monument.
Last month, the museum covered the 10-foot-tall statue with an orange tarp ahead of its shipment to the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library in Medora, North Dakota.
Theodore Roosevelt V, a descendant of the former president, cheered the removal plan last year, saying it’s “fitting that the statue is being relocated to a place where its composition can be re-contextualized to facilitate difficult, complex and inclusive discussions.”
Tennessee State House Representative Bruce Griffey is proposing “Kyle’s Law," in honor of Kyle Rittenhouse, that would require the state to reimburse people charged with murder and found not guilty if it was proven they acted in self-defense.
Griffey said in a statement, “My legislation, just as Kyle Rittenhouse’s acquittal, underscores the importance not only of our right to self-defense, but also the protections afforded by the Second Amendment of our Constitution. As a long-time Second Amendment advocate, this is not the first time I have sought to strengthen protection to gun owners who exercise their self-defense right. In 2019, I filed and pushed for passage of my ‘Stand Your Ground’ bill."
SHOW SCREENSHOT OF PROCLAMATION
Not only is Griffey pushing for passage of “Kyle’s Law” in Tennessee, but he is also presenting Kyle Rittenhouse with a Proclamation, honoring him as "a hero who selflessly defended his community, protected businesses, and acted lawfully in the face of lawlessness” and “a symbol of things that the Left is trying to destroy—our Constitution and our Second Amendment gun rights” who “provides a light of hope that we can fight back against the enemies of our Constitution and win."
Church Militant's Rome correspondent Jules Gomes is investigating an international web of deceit involving communist China, Pope Francis, Pfizer and Klaus Schwab's World Economic Forum. It entails China secretly funneling to the Vatican billions of dollars in exchange for Pope Francis' pushing of the Covid jab — all as part of The Great Reset.
According to the Rome correspondent's reporting, the Vatican has received $1.6 billion in bribes every year from China since 2014, and additional details continue coming to light.
The dots Gomes is beginning to connect corroborates journalist Edward Pentin's recent report about two meetings in 2021 between Pope Francis and Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla, the substance of which remains secret.
As Church Militant reports, it may also explain the Vatican's aggressive pushing of the Covid injections onto Catholics worldwide — "from the bishops to the parishes, from the parishes to the people, accompanied by the blasphemous propaganda that Jesus would take the jab."
The Vatican's corrupt relationship with the World Economic Forum and Big Pharma affirms the warnings of the whistleblower Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, who made an appeal to the worldwide Catholic clergy just months ago not to fall in line with the Vatican's wicked directives on vaccines. Viganò urged them to alert their flocks to the physical dangers of the so-called vaccine as well as to the plot to impose a global reset through the controls associated with a mandatory jab.
The archbishop wrote:
"I realize that it may be extremely unpopular to take a position against the so-called vaccines, but as shepherds of the flock of the Lord, we have the duty to denounce the horrible crime that is being carried out, whose goal is to create billions of chronically ill people and to exterminate millions and millions of people, based on the infernal ideology of the 'Great Reset' formulated by the president of the World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab, and endorsed by institutions and organizations around the world.
"The silence of so many cardinals and bishops, along with the inconceivable promotion of the vaccination campaign by the Holy See, represents a form of unprecedented complicity that cannot continue any longer. It is necessary to denounce this scandal, this crime against humanity, this satanic action against God."
In tonight's commentary, we address the disturbing evolution of the FBI into something it was never meant to be.
As we brought to you earlier in the broadcast, a Democratic congressman who has voiced considerable criticism of the Biden administration's open-borders policy had his house and offices raided this week by the FBI.
We've reported previously on FBI raids at the homes of Tina Peters and Sheronna Bishop in Colorado, for no other reason than that they have been actively involved in the effort to expose election fraud in their state.
Then you had Project Veritas leader James O'Keefe, whose property was raided by the FBI when the bureau found out he had a copy of Joe Biden's daughter's diary, which reveals sordid details about her father.
And when the FBI has been presented with evidence of unlawful activity by Biden's son, Hunter Biden, found on his laptop, the FBI sat on the evidence and did nothing.
Perhaps the most outlandish example of providing cover for the Biden administration is the FBI's treatment of the January 6 protest at the Capitol, treating it as a "violent insurrection" when in fact nobody came armed to the Capitol that day other than a few antifa-type thugs, while suspected FBI infiltrators are seen on video inciting the crowd to enter the Capitol.
Are you starting to notice a pattern here? And these aren't the only examples of the how the new politicized FBI operates. To give an exhaustive list would take far more time that we have allotted here.
As Biden's public approval ratings sink to below 40 percent, lower than almost any president in U.S. history, it may not matter how unpopular he is if he can claim the protection and allegiance of a national police force, tasked with taking down his opponents and protecting his allies.
That's how a banana republic operates. But this is happening in America.
Let's not forget that the core of the deep state that harassed and tormented the previous president, Donald Trump, consisted of the FBI and the CIA. No nation can survive its political institutions being overshadowed by its intelligence agencies.
Our founding fathers knew that and that's why they broke the federal government up into three branches. But if all three branches are afraid of the intelligence community, it's game over. Our republic is dead.
If the Republicans take over both Houses of Congress in the fall, it's imperative that they perform some house cleaning at the FBI. And if the agency can't be reformed, then it should be disbanded.
On that note, we say good night from Worldview Report. I'm Brannon Howse.

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.
