Does anyone really believe that cocaine in the Biden White House matters?
In this episode of Gracearchy with Jim Babka, we prove that no one really cares about this issue. Even the people talking about it are driven by other things.
You see, our news cycle operates on something called Agenda-Setting Theory. The theory suggests that the media influences not what we think, but what we think about through its focus on certain topics.
We analyze the arguments of one click-baiting pro-Trump group. Here’s why you should listen even if you don’t care about this story…
After you hear how we break this issue down and analyze it, can you think of times when you’ve been manipulated by media agenda-setting? Can you learn how to resist?
The standard definition of “media” might be too narrow for this story. Tempests can occur in teapots.
I coined the term Conflict Machine to describe our societal system. Here’s what I mean…
We Americans attempt to address issues through conflict. We get so caught up in it in the partisan battle that we lose sight of the problem, let alone the real solution. We just want to defeat, if not punish our enemies. It’s as if a machine is constantly churning out conflict – some might even call it a political-industrial complex.
In other words, Conflict Machine serves as a more fitting label for what we typically and blandly call politics.
And in this case, the desire to “win the battle” – putting the conflict first – leads to the subject of impeachment.
The political right wants to impeach Joe Biden.
I used to believe in impeachment.
Shockingly, I now believe impeachment is one of the most absurd parts of the Constitution. And in this episode, I explain why.

P.S. Everyone should hear our recent episode: Inflation Is Worse Than YOU Ever Thought. It is both timeless and timely. It’s also short – ten info-packed minutes on what inflation is doing to you, your family, and your friends. Then, ten great minutes on the wasted vote. The entire episode is just a bit longer than most commutes. Schedule it if you must. But don’t miss it!
