- A former Defense Department analyst has evaluated the weapons of war being used in Ukraine by both Russia and NATO, and he’s made an assessment that may shock most Americans.
- The North Dakota House has passed a bill to remove sexually explicit books from the children’s section of libraries.
- Is the American Red Cross aiding and abetting thousands of illegal border crossings every month?
- Joe Biden’s climate change czar asks for higher oil prices so that wind and solar can be made “more competitive.”
- And the Biden regime has cooked up a wicked scheme to help “even the playing field” among America’s home buyers.
All these stories and more when the Worldview Report begins, right now!
Good evening and welcome to the Worldview Report.
Leading us off tonight, most would agree that a dress rehearsal for World War III weaponry, minus the nuclear option, is playing out in Ukraine. So what have we learned so far about NATO and Russian weapons?
Natural News reports that a former officer at the Department of Defense warns that Russia’s capability in electronic warfare is unparalleled in the world right now.
David Pyne of the EMP Task Force on National Homeland Security made this assessment, citing the recently leaked documents from U.S. intelligence. According to the papers, American-made smart bombs known as Joint Direct Attack Munitions “are falling victim to Russian electronic jamming in Ukraine, causing them to miss their targets.”
“That is a very significant development, though not at all surprising given Russia’s robust capabilities in electronic warfare – particularly in long-range GPS jammers, which are second to none – and their military doctrine of establishing electronic superiority and supremacy at the beginning of any conflict.”
When asked how Ukraine’s planned spring offensive can be affected by Russian EW systems, Pyne indicated that they could be utilized “to jam Ukrainian satellite guidance and positioning signals, making Ukrainian military forces unable to use precision-guided munitions.”
He noted that:
“This likely helps to account for why the leaked top-secret documents indicate that the U.S. does not believe the upcoming Ukrainian spring counteroffensive in the Zaporizhzhia region will make more than modest gains.”
Pyne added that Moscow’s EW systems can jam not just enemy communications and radars, but also satellite guidance and positioning signal ranges. Its jamming systems can also reach 200 to 500 kilometers (124.3 to 310.7 miles), considerably longer than the jamming systems used by the West.
He mentioned that these systems can also “engage in cyberattacks against the enemy by transmitting malicious codes which can infect enemy internet and communications networks,” and furthermore, they are capable of transmitting “false or demoralizing texts to enemy troops and civilians.”
Pyne said Russia has not fully showcased its cyber and electronic warfare capabilities, which several national security analysts consider to be the best in the world.
These capabilities help Russia “blind early warning systems and severely disrupt or degrade military command and control systems [of potential enemies] making it difficult [for them] to conduct offensive or even defensive operations.”
The Gateway Pundit reports that the North Dakota House has passed a bill to remove sexually explicit books from the children’s section of libraries.
The bill has passed the House and Senate with veto-proof majorities. Ten Republicans and all Democrats voted against it, but it still passed with a 70-22 vote.
The legislation describes “explicit sexual material” as “any material which, taken as a whole, appeals to the prurient interest of minors; is patently offensive to prevailing standards in the adult community in North Dakota as a whole with respect to what is suitable material for minors; and taken as a whole, lacks serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value for minors.”
The bill also applies to “newsstands or any other business establishment frequented by minors, or where minors are or may be invited as a part of the general public.”
According to a report from Fox News, a librarian, or anyone else, who violates the law could be charged with a felony. They could face up to five years in prison and $10,000 in fines if convicted.
Additionally, employees of school districts, state agencies, or public libraries can be charged with a misdemeanor if they are found to be willfully exposing “explicit sexual material” to a child.
Liberals have opposed the bill by claiming that protecting children from sexually explicit materials is “censorship.”
Republican Rep. Vicky Steiner argued that “the media has been headlining this as ‘banning books.’ This bill is putting restrictions on pornographic children’s books currently being purchased by public libraries in taxpayer-funded buildings.”
It will become law after returning to the Senate for concurrence with its amendments and then being signed by Republican Governor Doug Burgum.
A report came out last week about the American Red Cross, which is providing guides for illegal alien “migrants” to help them cross the United States-Mexico border. And Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, a Republican, is looking into it.
A formal investigation has not yet been launched, but Paxton says his office is “starting to gather facts and determine whether that is something we need to dedicate some of our resources to.”
Back in February, it was revealed that the American Red Cross has been handing out visualized routes to migrants at the U.S. border showing them where to go and what to expect as they illegally trek into the country without permission.
The American Red Cross, by the way, sits on the board of the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Food and Shelter program, which hands out millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars to “nonprofit” groups dedicated to supporting illegal aliens after they are released into the U.S. interior.
One of the Red Cross guides states:
“If you use contraceptives methods, don’t forget to bring them with you. In necessary cases, some Red Cross clinics and medical brigades will give them to you for free.”
What does that have to do with migrating to the U.S., you ask? Well, it’s a known fact that more than 50 percent of the young women and girls who make that trek get raped along the way. An 8-year-old girl recently was found to have the DNA of 61 different males inside her upon arrival at the Mexico-U.S. border.
Last year, Natural News reports that Paxton’s office also opened an investigation into the Texas State Bar Foundation, which is said to be “facilitating” this surge in illegal immigration at the southern border by knowingly donating money to groups that “encourage, participate in, and fund illegal immigration at the Texas-Mexico border, and potentially using taxpayer dollars received from the State Bar of Texas.”
Paxton told the Daily Caller News Foundation:
“We have the authority to oversee charitable organizations in our state and investigate them if we see any type of corruption or wrongdoing. And so, we’re definitely open to looking at any nonprofit that we have some type of information that suggests they’re violating federal or state law.”
On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Joe Biden’s climate czar, John Kerry, stated that wind and solar power will become “far more price competitive than oil and gas” if oil and gas companies see their costs rise because they “have to spend huge amounts of money for carbon capture and storage and utilization.”
Kerry said, “I would say to you, Andrea, that, frankly, I’m surprised, pleasantly, on the positive side, by the amount of things that are just taking hold. We see remarkable progress on batteries and battery storage. We’re seeing the price of wind and solar coming down still, even as the technology is getting better, and it’s going to be far more price competitive than oil and gas if they have to spend huge amounts of money for carbon capture and storage and utilization. We don’t know the answer to some of those questions now. The marketplace is chasing solutions, but that is creating jobs, it’s creating economic opportunity, and it’s already producing some changes that are happening — like electric vehicles — much faster than we anticipated.”
Earlier in the interview, Kerry stated that “I think that we are on the right track, as long as the emissions begin to be abated, they begin to be captured. And that is the key for the oil and gas industry.”
Just the News reports that the Biden administration will soon implement a rule requiring homebuyers with good credit to pay higher mortgage rates in order to subsidize those with poor credit.
The Federal Housing Finance Agency's new rule will take effect on May 1 and only impact those buying houses or refinancing after that date, according to the Washington Times.
Federal Housing Finance Agency Director Sandra Thompson said the change would “increase pricing support for purchase borrowers limited by income or by wealth,” per the outlet, and would only result in “minimal” fee changes.
Bay Equity Home Loans senior loan officer Ian Wright told the Times:
“The changes do not make sense. Penalizing borrowers with larger down payments and credit scores will not go over well. It overcomplicates things for consumers during a process that can already feel overwhelming with the amount of paperwork, jargon, etc. Confusing the borrower is never a good thing.”
He added that:
“I am all for the first-time buyer having a chance to get into the market, but it’s clear these decisions aren’t being made by folks that understand the entire mortgage process.”
Government-supported housing companies Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) and Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac) will oversee the price adjustments.
Shark Tank star Kevin O’Leary has made headlines recently for his decision to move his businesses out of both New York City and Massachusetts.
In a video announcing the move, O’Leary cites high taxes, unstable policies, and a lack of safety as major factors in his decision to relocate. O’Leary is not one to shy away from controversy, and his departure from two Democratic-led cities has garnered much attention, particularly from those who share his conservative views.
Washington Examiner reports New York City, the city that never sleeps, has been plagued with a spike in crimes that has left the residents with no choice but to flee. O’Leary has declared the city a “war zone” and has announced he will relocate his businesses to more business-friendly states like Florida, Tennessee and North Dakota.
According to O’Leary, the high taxes and punitive policies of Democratic-led cities such as New York City and Los Angeles have made these places unbearable for investors, entrepreneurs and employees alike. The lack of proper management in these cities has led to a dangerous spike in crimes, making them unsafe for anyone to live or work.
Here is O’Leary talking about why he will no longer invest in New York City.
So 1,200 wealthy individuals a day are moving out of New York and into red states like Florida and Tennessee. Let’s hope they don’t bring their liberal voting patterns with them or that will turn these havens into the hell holes they wanted to escape.
And some are now saying that Portland, Oregon, is becoming the New York City of the West Coast, plagued by many of the same problems of rising crime, homelessness, and drug use.
We’ve reported over the last several weeks that companies such as Walmart and Cracker Barrel are moving out of Portland.
Now there’s another.
The decision comes despite the company’s efforts to increase security at the location.
REI’s Portland store has been situated in the city’s Pearl District since 2004, but the recent spike in crime has made it financially unsustainable for the retailer to continue operations there.
REI spokesperson Megan Behrbaum informed Oregon Live of the costly investments the company has made in store security, such as replacing windows with security glass, hiring private security around the clock, and installing a surveillance trailer at the loading dock.
Despite these efforts, the store has been overwhelmed by the volume of break-ins, shoplifting, and other crimes.
Behrbaum disclosed that REI spent over $800,000 on additional security last year alone but still experienced 10 burglaries.
She also noted the company’s unsuccessful attempts to work with its landlord, Brolin Co., to address safety concerns.
As the security measures necessary to protect customers and employees are no longer financially viable, REI has decided to close the Portland store before its lease ends in early 2024.
Here’s a report from CBN News on what’s driving businesses out of Portland.

Lawmakers in Michigan have submitted an urgent request to their members of Congress for an investigation of a company that Governor Gretchen Whitmer has been proposing to subsidize for its construction of a battery plant in her state.
Whitmer previously announced plans for a $2.3 billion facility to be owned by the Chinese company Gotion High-Tech Co.
It would build battery components at a new facility in Big Rapids, and create “2,350 good-paying jobs,” Whitmer has claimed, explaining that, to her, it’s all about attracting investment into her state for electric vehicles, which, incidentally, almost no American consumers want to buy, and many of those who have purchased one say it will be their last. EVs simply don’t perform up to the hype.
Now, a coalition of GOP state senators, including Senators Lana Theis, Ed McBroom, Joe Bellino, Dan Lauwers, and Kevin Daley, has asked Michigan’s congressional delegation to investigate Gotion and its subsidiary lined up for the Michigan project.
The Republican senators wrote:
“We are writing to urge you to use all federal resources available to immediately investigate whether Gotion High-Tech Co., Ltd., as registered on the Swiss Stock Exchange, has ties or contracts with foreign countries that have an adversarial relationship with the United States of America. In light of the time sensitivity of this matter, we kindly request that you work to take swift action. Your prompt attention to this issue is greatly appreciated, and we look forward to hearing from you soon.”
The senators explained that Gotion is “a Chinese Communist Party-affiliated battery manufacturer.”
They also pointed out that the deal Whitmer cut with the Chinese communists has “largely been crafted in secret,” including the use of $175 million from just one state fund, and more from other funds that could total an $800 million taxpayer-funded handout to the CCP-linked company.
They further stated in their letter:
“In addition to the company’s direct ties to the CCP, which presents a national security risk, the plan has come under scrutiny for its secrecy and lack of oversight, which may present environmental and public safety risks as well.”
And, it gets worse. A report from the National File charged that the company involved with Whitmer also has “close ties with the Taliban,” as it seeks access to Afghanistan’s vast lithium mines. Lithium is a core component for electric vehicle batteries and countries like Afghanistan have been known to use child labor to mine the chemical element.
Some conservatives are issuing health warnings about a new plant-based treatment that claims to keep produce fresh longer, resulting in less of it going to waste.
The woke company that produces the substance claims its use will help conserve resources such as water as it combats climate change and saves the planet.
But some consumers are not so sure about the new treatment, known as Apeel.
The Apeel website touts its product as a colorless, odorless and tasteless coating made of purified mono- and diglycerides that “creates an optimal microclimate inside every piece of produce, which leads to extended shelf life.”
It shows impressive time-lapse photography with side-by-side examples of avocados in which the untreated fruit turns shriveled and moldy while the treated version still looks fresh and appealing.
According to the company’s website, Apeel-treated avocados, limes and apples — including organic varieties — are now being carried at major U.S. grocery stores.
Apeel-treated avocados and citrus are being sold in Europe. Canadian stores are carrying cucumbers treated with the substance.
But the fact that Bill Gates’ name is associated with the product’s development is a no-go for many people. As Western Journal reports, they distrust the billionaire, who has bought up extensive swaths of American farmland, and heavily invested — to the tune of $1.75 billion — in COVID vaccine technology. He’s also invested in fake meat grown with cancer cells.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation website confirms that it pledged more than $985,000 in 2015 to the development of “aPEEL Technology, Inc.,” explaining its purpose was to “extend the shelf-life of crops without refrigeration and protect them from being eaten by pests by developing a molecular camouflage that uses cutin from plant extracts to create an edible, ultrathin barrier on the crop surfaces.”
One objection some people have is that the coating can’t be washed off, requiring consumers to trust the company’s assurances that it is safe and effective. Where have we heard that before, right?
The company insists its product is safe to eat.
But if Bill Gates has his fingerprints on it, you might want to, shall we say, proceed with caution.
Time now for our Worldview Report commentary.
American Military News reports that solar panels at one of the largest U.S. military installations were “probably made in China,” the secretary of the Army admitted during a congressional hearing Wednesday.
The comment came as the U.S. is decoupling parts of its economy from China amid intensifying competition between the superpowers.
Army Secretary Christine Wormuth said she could not vouch for whether a solar panel array at North Carolina’s Fort Bragg was made in the U.S. during a meeting of the House Armed Services Committee.
The conversation was captured in a YouTube clip uploaded by Washington Free Beacon.
So she finally owned up to what she knew the whole time but was trying her darndest to avoid answering. The solar panels powering portions of Fort Bragg are made in China, with slave labor, using coal shipped in from Russia, all so the U.S. Army can virtue signal about how “sustainable” it is. This woman ought to be fired yesterday. She is no more qualified to run the Army than General Mark Milley is to be advising the president on matters of national defense.
That does it ladies and gentlemen for this edition of the Worldview Financial Report. If you enjoy this viewer-supported broadcast, I hope you will help us keep it on the air. There are a couple of ways you can do that…
Until next time, I’m Brannon Howse. May God save America. Take care.
