The Heartland Institute’s Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, and Nate Myers present episode 294 of the In the Tank Podcast, recorded live at noon CT on Thursday, May 13. The ITT crew talk about America suddenly facing one crisis after another, and talk about how they could (and should) have been prevented.

They tackle the unemployment crisis, where (shocker) people getting “stimulus” checks and extended unemployment benefits find sitting at home a better option than returning to work. They talk about the inflation crisis, where (shocker) the government pouring trillions of “free money” into the economy has real-world ramifications. And they talk about the gas crisis, where (shocker) the Biden administration stopping fracking and canceling the Keystone XL pipeline — as well as the Russian hack that crippled the most-important pipeline on the east coast — has a real-world effect on gas prices.

    It’s good to finally have objective survey data on how the liberal TV networks give their viewers a grossly false image of global warming.

    And it’s par for the course that Twitter flags the truth as unreliable, all the better to foster the dissemination of falsehoods.
