The following is a transcript from the Pro America Report.
Welcome, welcome, welcome! Ed Martin here on the Pro America Report. Thank you for tuning in across the nation. Across the fruited plain, as Rush Limbaugh used to say, what a great guy. What a great communicator he was. Anyway, welcome, welcome. Glad you’re here. Thank you for listening. If you’re at the Salem radio networks, The Answer San Diego. We love that station and love the people of San Diego and the southern California. In fact, I’ll be out visiting my family who are spread from Ventura County down and some cousins are down, my in-laws are down in the San Diego area, so I don’t know if we’ll be all the way down to San Diego this time, but be on the West Coast pretty soon.
But right now I’m in the swamp and broadcasting and getting you the scoop on what you need to know. In a moment we will get, we will have a chance to visit with Tom Baker, the return, the retired FBI agent, his book The Fall of the FBI is extraordinarily well done and important. You’re gonna wanna hear that interview. He’s been on the program before. I was joking with him in preparation for the interview. I had him on the show when his book first came out. I I love to get new authors. And Mr. Baker’s retired FBI senior official for a maybe a decade now, wrote this book, Post Hill Press, their imprint Bombardier Books. Published it. I think I had him on a year ago. Now he’s a huge star. He’s been on all the TV shows and everywhere, but he’s great. He’ll be back on. We’ll talk about the FBI. We’ll talk about what he’s seeing, and I’m gonna ask him about some whistleblowers. I have a question about that, since that’s in the news so prominently.
And then we’ll talk with Mark Mix. It turns out that the, remember the left wing, Starbucks, you love your coffee. The Starbucks people unionized with a lot of help and a lot of money from the SEIU and others, and and, you know, these organizers and in places. The Starbucks employees are saying, wait a second. This is a bad deal for us. We want out and you can’t get out. It’s like the Hotel California. Starbucks unions are like the Hotel California. You can check out, but you can never leave. So you baristas, if you sign up for the Starbucks Union, it was supposed to be Nirvana. I don’t know, really. I’m really mixing my metaphors, it was supposed to be Shangri-La, it turns out maybe Shangri-La it is, it turns out to be strange and unhelpful, and we’ll talk with Mark Mix of the National Right to Work about that.
But. Before we get to any of those interviews, what you need to know today, what you need to know today is WYNK. What you need to know WYNK WYNK. What you need to know, go to proamericaexcuseme, proamericareport.com and sign up for the daily WYNK, which comes in your e-mail box at 8:00 AM East Coast, 5:00 AM Pacific. That just gives you a few key things, a few key thoughts. A few key thoughts. From me, a few key links, and often this commentary. So here’s the WYNK though today.
The hearing. That you’re hearing about is not the one that in the long run will matter as much. Now it’s a bit of a big claim, but there’s a lot of attention all day Wednesday and afterwards on the IRS whistleblowers who appeared before the house committees there. I think the Oversight Committee and they said, you know, what’s going on here. Weaponization of government and all that, and Jason Smith, the congressman from Ways and Means Committee, was a part of that. And so was Jim Jordan and and Comer chairman Comer et cetera, et cetera. Et cetera.
And it’s important. And it probably is going to show that the corruption of the Biden White House and Joe Biden, the Biden family, the Biden crime family, is profound, but that that that strikes me as inevitable. That strikes me as inevitable. In a different hearing where I was and where I was working and paying attention and pushing and pulling, was the subcommittee Of the House Administration committee, and it was a subcommittee for January 6th.
And the committee met to speak to the Inspector General of the Capitol Police. Now the Inspector General of the Capitol Police has a unique role. He it could be a she, but in this case it’s a he is the guy who gets to look into what happened and what’s gone on. So when you Have a question, like internal affairs. When you have a question and you’re the Congress and you have a right to ask the House, especially what is it that happened here? It’s this guy who can find the truth because he’s neither a he’s not in the line of the chief of police. He’s not a line of officer. He’s the guy that gets to the bottom of it. And this hearing, I know because I was helping cause I care so much about January 6th. This is chairman Barry Loudermilk of Georgia and he was a victim of the Select Committee of January 6, led by Benny Thompson and Liz Cheney. The the terrible, terrible, corrupt Select Committee from last Congress and they and they slurred. And smeared Congressman Loudermilk. They put a video together. They cut and pasted a Video and they implied that the images of him, Congressman Loudermilk, giving a tour of the capitol on January 5th. 2021 were reconnaissance tours, a reconnaissance tour.
Now I have done the tour of the Capitol with Congressman Loudermilk and his wife, who’s a charming woman, and the two of them give this they. Well, they just have a great they have a great marriage, a great friendship, I think, talking together. And so Congressman Loudermilk, who he loves the history of the capitol and the history of the people. He he he showed these nooks and crannies of the Capitol Tour. I went on with my wife and about four or five others. And his wife. Congressman Loudermilk, one point. she was like, ahem, and Kind of added something one point he forgot somebody’s name. He said she got it. It was wonderful, but he’s the farthest thing from a guy that would give you reconnaissance tours of January 5th. He he is a conservative. He’s from Georgia, but he’s a very kind man. He’s not even the kind of politician. The people on others their own side or other side, the other side dislike. They just like it.
So they slurred him, the Select Committee, Cheney, Thompson smeared and slurred him, and now he’s the chairman of this subcommittee.
And he’s methodically going through. And there was video In this hearing that was processed for this hearing and we look I looked at and we had lawyers looking at and experts looking at and we’re gonna get to the bottom of it. But it was a series. Of instances, not one, not one capitol policeman, but more than one. It was look like 6 or 7 and probably over 100 capitol policemen in total who were part of of allowing people to enter the capitol through one of the doors. The Upper West terrace, they actually were holding the door. Opening the door, ushering them in and the whole line of the law enforcement. Capitol police was. Standing back and saying, you know, OK, let him. Tell let him go in there and, which is completely. Contrary to all the select committees, nonsense to all the DOJ, and so the Inspector General is faced with a series of questions, some of which he could answer in front of the the the committee, others he has to go get the answers. But a series of questions, and this is my point.
As we unravel the truths of January 6th. The problem for the left and the media in this country is, as you unravel the truth of January 6th, it reveals second and third Crimes and misconduct.
What I mean by that is on the day of January 6th, it looks to me like. The Police Department was overwhelmed because they mismanaged. I don’t know if the people at the top, Pelosi’s aides or whatever were actually wanting all of what happened to happen, but they were either incompetent in the direction of making this happen or they were duplicitous. I’m not sure which and it doesn’t really matter. Because the Normal police officers. It’s not their job to assess all of this. It’s not their Job to assess all the problems. There’s their job is to do what they’re. Supposed to do and when you see that what they’re told to do. Is let people in help them wave them in. Open the door, close the door, make sure they’re in safely. Don’t get your hat caught. Don’t hit your head. Go over there. I mean, it’s incredible. And as one of the questions that came up is this one very simple one. When did the 1st Amendment protest Transition to domestic terrorism, which is what Pelosi and Benny Thompson and Liz Cheney and the Department of Justice say it is, say it became. What moment, what moment. Did that happen? When did everybody know? And that because that’s a legal standard that they’ve been using against the country.
But here’s my point. When you pull that back, you say, whoa, whoa. If January 6 was a law, a a law enforcement failure mess up, some people acted badly. That’s true. But if that if it was a protest that went a little bad. What’s the cover up in? And it’s not even a cover up. It’s the use of the events. In order to do what?
Well, currently it’s to election interfere, it’s to interfere with the next election.
But in more specifically, it has been a way to punish your political opponents.
And I don’t just mean somebody goes ohh, that’s that person over there is a is my political opponent, he or she’s going to run against me. Just as people on the other side. Of the arguments on the other side of the politics, you just punish them as a cautionary tale to the rest of the world. See what happens if you’re one of those Trump people? See what happens if you’re one of those people that protests and thinks you have that set of rights? Well, we’ll squash you and we’ll use the lawfare any way we want. So what unravels as January 6th unravels and it started at this committee hearing, and I congratulate Congressman Barry Loudermilk and the others as it unravels and you see the truth, 1.) you realize they’re persecuting by prosecuting a whole bunch of people. And 2.) you realize that the Select Committee was truly. Evilly using their power to damage people, and 3.) the Department of Justice is doing the same thing, and they’re currently doing it for election interference. It’s a big deal what happened in that hearing. More to follow, more to follow. We’ll come back to this, I promise.
I’ll be right back. I gotta take a break. Ed Martin here on the Pro America Report back in a moment.
