Episode details

*This week, we had tech issues during out international interview, so we had to reschedule for next week. Now enjoy your food groups.*

Can you guess what eco-friendly-back-to-normal-Earth-loving-diplomatic Joe Biden is doing? That’s right! Reopening oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. We’re not saying Let’s Go Brandon, but we won’t yell at you if you say it in the comments.

And while Joe and the Dems are doing bad things, at least their work is consequential. The Republicans are all in on their newest “futile and stupid gesture.” And it’s really “let’s”ing stupid.

And if we weren’t already annoyed enough, we have Corporate Media’s next attempt to bury Substack and independent journalism. Are the “Substack Scaries” over? Or are we just beginning to take them down. Join us and we’ll topple Big Media together.

It’s all this, and more, on this week’s episode of Useful Idiots. Check it out.
