The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, Chris Talgo, and Nate Myers present episode 338 of the In The Tank Podcast. On this episode, the ITT crew talks about the idea that the democratic establishment is ready to send Biden and Kamala Harris packing.

If the pandemic taught us anything, it showed how critical open debate in science and medicine needs to be. Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, as one of the authors of the Great Barrington Declaration, has been one of the most visible and vocal voices against lockdowns and how the world’s focus needed to be on protecting the vulnerable. He discusses why government needs to do to protect free debate in science and medicine. Bhattacharya, a physician and epidemiologist from Stanford University is now a fellow at the Hillsdale College Academy of Science and Freedom, an organization he co-founded with fellow Declaration author Martin Kuldorff, Ph.D., who recently retired from Harvard, and Dr. Scott Atlas, also of Stanford and former COVID–19 advisor in the White House under President Trump. Bhattacharya discusses herd immunity, why it was so ignored during COVID-19, the latest terrorism bulletin from the Department of Homeland Security on “mandate dissent,” the government’s claim that it is a possible triggerfor violence and unrest, and what needs to be done with the nation’s health agencies so they are more responsive to the public.

When Canadian truckers were told they would no longer be allowed to cross the border from the U.S. without showing proof of vaccination, they said “enough!” Tens of thousands of truckers formed the “Freedom Convoy” and converged on Ottawa in protest of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s draconian restrictions enacted in the name of the coronavirus. Supporters waving Canadian flags have braved sub-zero temperatures, cheering them on as they fight for their rights. The group has already raised over $8 million in support. The convoy has received international attention from the likes of Elon Musk, Donald Trump, Tucker Carlson, and Jordan Peterson. Plus, the movement may inspire similar convoys in other countries, including the U.S. John-Henry Westen, host of the John-Henry Westen Show, is a citizen and resident of Canada. Westen was in Ottawa to greet and report on the convoy. Lifesite News, of which Westen is the co-founder and editor-in-chief, has provided round the clock coverage of the Freedom Convoy. Westen described the number or outrageous restrictions taking place over the last two years and how the traditional media has essentially ignored them. He describes how he was unable to reach his daughter across the country in nearly 2 years. Westen also explains how Trudeau was able to get re-elected in September and why the Freedom Convoy can be transformative.

Dr. Scott Jensen, a long-time family physician, is a former Minnesota State Senator who is now running for governor. While working as a physician, Dr. Jensen became aware that reporting COVID-19 deaths was done differently than other diseases. Specifically, Dr. Jensen was told to report deaths as “due to COVID,” even if that wasn’t the primary cause. When Dr Jensen reported this to his higher-ups, he was told that a medical board was reviewing his license, which is required to practice medicine. Essentially, he had to stay silent or lose his job. Dr. Jensen decided to go public with this information even though it threatened his career. Now, he’s running for governor in Minnesota. Dr. Jensen joins Heartland’s Samantha Fillmore and Matt Dean to provide his compelling story against bureaucratic injustice. Follow Dr. Jensen on Twitter: @drscottjensen
