Joe Biden Gaslights America About Gas Prices

You have to understand editors Matt Welch, Peter Suderman, Katherine Mangu-Ward, and Nick Gillespie discuss U.S. foreign policy debacles other than the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

28:15 Weekly listener question: Hi, I’m interested in alternative strategies for dealing with Russia. Can we use money to fund weapons and sanctions, instead of relying solely on immigration policy? How about if all Russian citizens were granted uncapped visas from the U.S. How about granting immediate citizenship to all Russian military personnel and families that surrender? Could be interesting if you include bonuses to defecting soldiers for bringing their equipment—$1,000 for a rifle, $100,000 for a tank, $1 million for a MiG… all much cheaper than weapons used against them. It seems like the army will rapidly shrink and Putin won’t be able to support the deportation of millions of Russian citizens. This would also make it much more affordable than using weapons against them.
