The following is a transcript from the Pro America Report radio show.
Welcome, welcome, welcome. Ed Martin here on the Pro America Report. Hey, it is really going to be an interesting day today. We’ve got a couple of great guests on the program. I encourage you…
Nikki Schaefer, Heart of a Child Ministries, one of these great pro life leaders who has done so much out there in the community. And I will ask her this, but she’s kind of an entrepreneur, social entrepreneur. She started her pro life ministry working with prayer pillows because of her daughter, inspired by her. And it’s an amazing story. But she’s now working with ultrasounds, working in schools. She texted me this morning, she’s expanded out into the public schools, which is much harder to do. It’s really, really exciting. She’ll be wonderful to talk to. I hope you will make sure to hear her visit with us.
And then we’ll talk with a guy, this is fascinating, Dr. Scott S. Powell, a PhD from I think Boston University will be with us. He’s written a book on the national holidays. And basically, I would say he’s using the national holidays to talk about our history and how important it is to not let it get canceled. And so his book is really interesting. We’ll talk with him in a few moments. All right. We only have a short segment because I want to leave more room to talk to those folks.
So I’m going to do a shorter WYNK today, what you need to know. And what you need to know today, and I’ll pick back up on this maybe at the end of the show in the last segment, is you need to go to ProjectVeritas.com, ProjectVeritas.com, and sign up for all ttheir email alerts because the newest video they have is a New York Times reporter, one of the top guys, one of the most influential guys at The New York Times. He’s considered one of the high ranking and award winning folks, Matthew Rosenberg. And Matthew Rosenberg is on video talking about the January 6 events.
And he basically says… One thing he says, “I was there,” he says… And he says “everybody makes it sound like all the journalists make it sound like it was such a big deal and such a terrible time and so scary.” He’s like, I didn’t see that. He said it wasn’t like that. They’re overdoing it. And he goes on about that. And then the other thing he said is that there was lots of FBI there. He said there was lots of FBI there, FBI informants and others at the Capitol on the January 6.
Now, here’s the thing that you can immediately say… “What? He said that? Why is his reporting for The New York Times basically saying that everybody… that it was scary, it was terrible and all this stuff.” Is he lying? I don’t think he’s lying. Here’s the thing about Project Veritas. They get people to say things sort of not off the record, but unguarded. And you get a glimpse of the truth. Maybe this guy Rosenberg was bragging. Like maybe he’s making himself look tough by saying, I wasn’t scared. I was not scared. Other people said they were scared or whatever.
I actually can believe that because inevitably, and I don’t know that it’s true, but inevitably, the people talking to these young men are I think young women. And he’s probably trying to be charming or be braggadocious or something. I can see that dynamic. But as to the second one about the FBI, that’s not one you’d brag about, right? That doesn’t say anything bragging. I guess if you were doing an analysis of whether this young man – I don’t know if Matthew Rosenberg, I assume he’s single, but I could be just assuming that for no reason.
And so he’s trying to wow some young woman, and maybe he’s saying there was lots of FBI there so that he can look cool and tell her something that’s not in the public realm. Because The New York Times has been saying that people that talk about the FBI playing a role on January 6 are conspiracy theorists and kooks. At least that’s how they imply it. I don’t know if they say the word kooks, but they certainly say that these are conspiracy theory stuff. This is conspiracy theory stuff.
So Project Veritas gets people to speak unguarded. And what they say, you can’t trust that what they say is 100% true. They could be lying. And sometimes people will say, AHA, he said this, he meant that — maybe he was lying. Maybe he’s lying to impress somebody. Maybe he’s lying because he’s lying. I mean, who knows? But when there’s no upside to lying, you know, if he’s saying to a young woman, I’m not afraid. I wasn’t afraid. All these people, the journalists said they were afraid. I wasn’t afraid. It was nothing to be afraid of. I’m macho. Maybe that was what that was.
But there was no upside to saying the FBI had informants all over the capital. They were all over that day. That’s what he said. What you need to know is follow Project Veritas because they always bring interesting information forward when they have these releases. They are truly citizen journalists, investigative journalists. They’re not beholden to anybody. They’re not coming at it from one side, and they don’t present anything that in my mind is, that they say is totally canonical. They’re not saying, we know all this is true.
They’re saying, here’s a reporter for The New York Times, one of the top guys, and here’s what he’s saying. And when you sit back and look at what he’s saying, and I’m picking out two aspects of what he’s saying. One is that it wasn’t that scary and it wasn’t a threat and people, the journalists that are saying it was so terrible are overdoing it. That’s him. That’s his fact, he’s saying. That’s what he knows. And the second thing he knows is that the FBI had informants all over the place.
Now, neither one of those things that he says in this unguarded moment with Project Veritas seem to be in his reporting. So is he lying about all that? I’m sort of willing to accept that he might be lying about the dangerousness because he wants to look cool or wants to look tough. But there’s no reason to lie about the FBI. If he means that, then he’s hiding that. What you need to know is my experience at CNN, where I was for six months, was that the selective use of the truth, it happens all the time.
And so he may believe, he may think he’s not lying about the FBI by not stating that, but certainly they’ve allowed the January 6 narrative to be extraordinary in its drama and in its negativity about the people who were in DC that day. And one factor that would change that is if the FBI was heavily involved, wouldn’t it? So ProjectVeritas.com, ProjectVeritas.com, what you need to know is go there and sign up and when you watch these videos, you have to watch them and you have to have some common sense about it.
James O’Keefe is one of the smarter, tougher guys around. He does this a lot, but he’s also a communicator. He would be saying, hey, listen to this and see what you think. Listen to this and try to understand what’s happening. And when he puts out these releases, he’s putting them out because he’s saying there’s something to watch here and it’s true on this one.
All right. That’s what you need to know today. We’ll take a break. When we come back, we’ve got these great interviews. Nikki Schaefer as well as Dr. Scott S. Powell about our national holidays and our history. Very interesting. We’ll take a break and be right back. It’s Ed Martin here in the Pro America Report, back in a moment.
