After the Democratic Party's disastrous night in Iowa, socialists everywhere are wondering whether there's a conspiracy to keep Bernie off the ticket in November.

Donald Kendal and Justin Haskins answer these questions and more on this episode of the podcast.

President Trump traveled to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland this week and he had a lot of good economic news from the United States to share: record low unemployment, millions of new jobs, a booming energy sector, a new trade deal with China and a replacement for NAFTA. Trump also, remarkably, took on the “prophets of [climate] doom and their predictions of the apocalypse,” which have failed to come true for more than 50 years.
Director of Communications Jim Lakely and Research Director Ed Hudgins break down some highlights from Trump’s economic speech, and how he was the only voice of reason at a conference filled with climate alarmists.
Heartland Institute President Frank Lasée was on WTTW's "Chicago Tonight" program on January 21, 2020 to debate Chicago Alderman Matt Martin on his resolution declaring a "climate emergency" in the city of Chicago. "Chicago Tonight" is the local PBS affiliate's flagship news program.
Frank pointed out that forcing Chicago to undertake expensive measures to "fight climate change" are not just unnecessary, but an egregious waste of resources for a city running nearly a $1 billion budget deficit. He also debunked the claim that carbon dioxide is a "pollutant" and that changes in the level of Lake Michigan has anything to do with human activity.

Heartland's Donald Kendal, and Jim Lakely are joined by Isaac Orr in episode 224 of the In The Tank Podcast. Humanity flourished in the 2010s. Extreme poverty was cut in half, the child mortality rate has reduced by a third, and 28% of all wealth was produced. But does that translate to life in America? Considering rising health care costs, college costs, housing prices, and the general rise in cost of living, we explore the question: is life getting harder in America.
