204. McCarthy Is Humiliated. Congress is Failing. America is Frustrated. Our Enemies Are Celebrating. The NFL and Damar Hamlin’s Shocking Injury. The Camouflage Wave Is Sworn In. Welcome to 2023. Don’t Come Lookin’.

 Welcome to 2023. The year of the stupid. 

As we begin the new year, our political system is again failing us. And #OurEnemiesAreCelebrating.

Welcome to the 118th Congress. Welcome to our chaotic new normal. Welcome to 2023. 

We’re digging to the Kevin McCarthy/Speaker of the House madness, the tragic Damar Hamlin NFL injury, a #CamouflageWave update, and our favorite new country song of 2023. It’s a fast and fierce new pod to start your new year off right. 

Here’s the GQ article by Luke Zaleski recommended in the pod

Here’s that great track by Jackson Dean.

Every episode of Independent Americans hosted by author, activist and social entrepreneur Paul Rieckhoff is the truth beyond the headlines–and light to contrast the heat of other politics and news shows. It’s content for the 50% of Americans that proudly call themselves independent. Always with a unique focus on national security, foreign affairs and military and veterans issues. This is another pod to help you stay vigilant. Because vigilance is the price of democracy. In these trying times especially, Independent Americans will continue to be your trusted place for independent news, politics, inspiration and hope.
