The following is a transcript from the Pro America Report.
Welcome, welcome, welcome. Ed Martin here on the Pro America Report. Great to be together. Don’t forget, visit ProAmericaReport.com, stay up on all our stuff.
It’s great to be together. Another interesting week. Lots happening all across America. There’ll be politics and campaigns. Liz Cheney will stand for re election in the primary in Wyoming this week. That should be the results. Look like she’s going to lose what she deserves to lose.
Meanwhile, in Washington DC, most of the Congress, most of the members, they’re not in sessions, so most of the members high tail at home. Many of them have reelection campaigns. All the House members do, of course, as well as many senators. And so it’s kind of quiet in the swamp, but that doesn’t stop the massive regulatory state to continue, which is happening all over the place.
There’s lots to talk about, about that, but also we’re starting to see the contours of the raid on Mar-A-Lago.
And we’re starting to see, as I predicted last week, that there will be, this is another hoax. This is another hoax. And one of the details about the hoax, the way these hoaxes are run, whether it’s the Russia, Russia, Russia investigation, which was confidential while the Mueller report was ongoing, so you could have leaks and you could have claims by people like Adam Schiff and others. Congressman he would say, I’ve seen the top secret, I’ve seen the classified material and oh, it’s just really bad. It’s going to be bad. And then no one can refute it because you can’t cite classified material to refute it.
So part of the hoax is to have stuff that you can’t deny. And so we have already Adam Schiff is saying, oh, yeah, we got to look at the national security classified material. Even Marco Rubio and, fell for it with Senator Mark Warner. Those two are on the Intelligence Committee of the Senate. One Democrat, Warner, one Republican, Rubio, and they sent a joint letter that said, can you please tell us what is going on with the Mar-A-Lago stuff? What’s with the documents that were seized? We know it will be classified, so you don’t have to do it publicly. It can be private. And you know what that means, of course, is that they’re going to do that privately and we won’t see it.
And so you’ll have Mark Warner will say, oh, boy, it looks really bad. And Marco Rubio will probably say, well, I can’t say much because I can’t, I’m not allowed to.
You see the game, it’s a game.
It’s the hoax game. They did it with Russia. Russia. Russia, masterfully. They do the same thing with January 6, 14 000 hours of videotape being held back by the police and the law enforcement because why? Because they say it’s classified.
And so we don’t get to know. But meanwhile they can say, oh, there was terrible things going on. Watch this snippet. Watch that snippet. It’s terrible stuff.
All right, but here’s what you need to know today.
We are watching an incredible effort to reframe words with new meaning and reframe truths with new meaning. And it’s being done right in front of our faces. And you sort of have to shake your head and try to shake off the cobwebs and understand it.
But here’s a quote I want to give you, and I’m reminded of this. We’re going to talk in a few moments with Jack Posobiec. Jack Posobiec has been put on a list of people that should not be listened to because he used the word groomer. And the LGBT community in England has complained that that is bigoted and therefore he’s on some sort of list to be censored. And he said, I’m just using the term groomer for people that are trying to take advantage of kids, which is a term that’s existed. And he’s saying the English group is saying it’s offensive to the LGBT community. And his answer, which will ask him is, wait a second, I’m not talking about them, I’m talking about groomers.
But I want to dig up for you a phrase, a quote, a series of sentences from a famous British reporter and a public figure.
His name is Malcolm Muggeridge. You may not have heard that much about him. He died in 1990s. He had a long life. He lived into his eighties, I think. And he was a famous libertine wild character in the 1940s, 50s, and 60s, kind of a young star reporter who went wild with wild character. And in the early ’70s he converted to Christianity and ultimately to Catholicism. And one of the people who is influential was a little nun in India, in the gutters in the slums of Calcutta named Mother Teresa. And he actually, because he was a journalist, he was mostly a writer before, but then he became a TV presenter, as they say, and he did documentaries on Mother Teresa. And he is credited with being one of the people that made her very famous.
He was an intellectual guy. I think he studied at Oxbridge, either Oxford or Cambridge.
But here’s a quote he said:
In the beginning was the word. I mentioned he was a Christian. In the beginning it was the word. And he was talking about John’s Gospel beginning with the phrase in the beginning it was the Word. And one of the things that appalls me, Muggeridge, and saddens me about the world today is the condition of
words. He went on to say his whole career was about words, as a writer. Words can be polluted even more dramatically and drastically than rivers and land and sea. There has been a terrible destruction of words in our time.
Now that’s Malcolm Muggeridge talking in 1980. What would he say today?
Not only do we have a situation where the Biden administration says, I’ll redefine the word recession, or I will redefine the word raid or we’ll change the words on groomer. I guess that’s not the Biden administration, but also it’s a redefinition of truths about America.
If the destruction of words started in this time, or Malcolm Muggeridge was describing it back then, can you imagine what it’s like and what it means to see it today? Because it’s not just happening in terms of the single words, but like phrases. Due process. Due process is being denied to lots of people. And it’s being denied because why, because they know better.
The news, the word the news used to mean that people tried to get facts and present them as facts. They don’t even bother now, as someone else pointed out, why isn’t the number one question asked about the Mar-A-Lago raid, Who packed the boxes?
Who put the stuff in the boxes? Isn’t that something somebody should know? We don’t even know any facts. All we’re told is there was possibly, maybe documents related to national security or related to nuclear secrets.
What’s related to mean? Again, that’s not the news. That’s not real news. That’s not facts that are then analyzed. It’s arguments being made and presented as facts.
Elections, the election integrity question, you’re not allowed to ask about the 2020 election because it’s been deemed by I don’t know who, the powers that be, that there was no problem, there were no problems, even though every other election has been confronted and understood to have problems.
But back to my point, it’s intentional. Malcolm Muggeridge goes on when he’s talking about the word. In the beginning was the word. It is intentional to corrupt the meanings of words, to convert the meanings.
By the way, marriage, they changed not just the definition, they change the word, what the word means. There’s no sacramental, there’s no procreative part of it. It just has to be defined the way we’re told, the changing of words, and of course, Orwell referenced it, people always throw that back.
But what you need to know is it’s happening in front of our eyes. It’s happening in front of our eyes and it happens in sort of warp speed now.
And so that words have no meaning. Inflation. The inflation reduction act has now been said Everybody agrees it didn’t reduce anything, and yet they say it with a straight face and they say something like, yes, but if possibly this, that and the other thing, then it might reduce inflation. It’s not that words don’t have meaning. That’s the wrong thing to understand.
What you need to know is words, the meaning of words is changing, being changed intentionally, intentionally to undermine understanding, to undermine truth. That’s happening all around us.
If you got the meaning of words, if you change the meaning of words, again, it’s not that words don’t have meaning. It’s they have other meaning. It means something else. It pulls you from the truth.
And ultimately, it leads to, as Malcolm Muggeridge said, destruction.
It’s not just a destruction of the words. It’s destruction of the people living together. And one great example is the word nation. Nationalism.
That word has been changed. It’s becoming a word of bigotry instead of a word of togetherness, connectedness.
All right, we got to take a break. That’s all I got for now. That’s what you need to know, please visit ProAmericaReport.com. Sign up there for our daily email. We’ll be back. We’ll got a great show. Ed Martin here on the Pro America Report. Back in a moment.
