After a solid couple of years of violence directed at the right wing, Joe Biden has come out strongly against the opposite. Ignore Antifa violence. Ignore the fact that a republican congressman was shot. Ignore the multiple attacks against Rand Paul. It's right wing violence we should fear. Well, Biden is wrong, and this seems like a blatant attempt to stir up true anger. These are dangerous times.

The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, and Chris Talgo present episode 363 of the In The Tank Podcast. Despite continued high inflation numbers, stock market drops, and a shaky housing market, the Biden Administration thought is was a good time to celebrate the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act. Also, major credit card companies have taken action that will essentially create a national gun registry.

The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, Justin Haskins, and Chris Talgo present episode 362 of the In The Tank Podcast. President Joe Biden is seemingly taking on a new "tough guy" persona. The ITT crew discusses whether this new "Dark Brandon" persona is going to lead to an increased push for agenda items during his next two years in office. Will Biden more aggressively push for climate action, or gun control measures, or health care policy?

It is hard to imagine a more-worthy recipient of the 2022 Heartland Liberty Prize than the remarkable and brave Yeonmi Park. In her book, "In Order to Live," Park recounts her harrowing escape from North Korea at the age of 13 – a journey to freedom few have the courage to undertake, and fewer survive. Join us on October 21 at the Marriot Chicago O'Hare to hear her inspiring story, learn what life is really like in the “Hermit Kingdom” of communist North Korea, and why she worries for the future of freedom here in America.

The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, Justin Haskins, and Chris Talgo present episode 358 of the In The Tank Podcast. Donald Trump’s residence was raided by the FBI this week. We are still not exactly clear as to the reasoning behind the raid. Also, the Inflation Reduction Act looks like it is real close to becoming law, which along with raising taxes, pushing further down the path of unreliable energy, and doing absolutely nothing to reduce inflation, will increase the power of the IRS.

To many leftists, Donald Trump was the epitome of evil. The corporate media barely held a more favorable view than that. But to regular people, there's a whole other story. The real question is this. Which president, Trump or Biden, had higher approval ratings this far into their presidency? We have the answer.

Heartland Institute President James Taylor was a guest on Tipping Point on OANN the other day. He was asked to comment on what host Kara McKinney called a "clown show" of energy policy pushed by President Biden and the Democrats in Washington. Michigan Sen. Debbie Stabenow spoke excitedly about driving an electric car and not worrying about gas prices. Taylor called that a "clown car" and offered a lot of substantive analysis of our wrong-headed energy policies in this quick hit.
