“Build Back Better"?, $3.5 Trillion Boondoggle, Biden's Border Crisis, Drone Murders
Wednesday, September 22, 2021

As a beleaguered President Biden addressed the U.N. General Assembly, America is buffeted by multiple crises including the dramatically festering border crisis, the threat of an unprecedented $3.5 trillion in federal “Build Back Better" "infrastructure” spending, and ongoing foreign policy debacles from Afghanistan to Australia to France. This video discusses these challenges and more.

Independent Outlook is the regular round-table conversation from the Independent Institute that provides timely insights and cutting-edge commentary on the most pressing issues of the day. It features Independent’s David J. Theroux (Founder and President), Dr. Williamson M. Evers (Senior Fellow), and Dr. Graham H. Walker (Executive Director), as well as occasional additional Independent Institute fellows.

In this Independent Outlook, David Theroux, Williamson Evers, and Graham Walker examine President Biden's shameful U.N. talk, his "Wag the Dog" drone disaster in Afghanistan, General Mark Milley and Pentagon hypocrisy, southern border crisis, massive federal spending threat, failure of socialism, Gavin Newsom recall election, media bias, DC swamp corruption—and much more.
