The following is a transcript from the Pro America Report.
Welcome, welcome, welcome. Ed Martin here on the Pro America Report. Well, we are in a really tough place in this country, I have to tell you. I hope and pray we get through this, but we’re seeing something that’s so brazen, so over the top, so outrageous, I’m just not sure how this country, if it will ever be the same. So welcome to the Pro America report. I’m Ed Martin. I’m pro America. I’m definitely pro America. I’m still pro America. But I have to tell you, when you watch the Department of Justice, the FBI invade the home of a former president, you don’t think of America (clears throat), pardon me. You think of a Third World nations banana republic. It’s not a joke now. It’s not like a talking point. It’s not some kind of line you say when you say that, we have the Department of Justice, and they’re going to come up with an answer. They’re going to come up with some reason to justify a warrant and a search, but at this point, they can’t be trusted.
Look, 25 years ago, let’s say that’s the number, maybe 20, but 25 years ago for sure, if the FBI invaded anyone’s home, including the former president, you would say, well, I have to give them the benefit of the doubt because they’re the FBI. But today, what we know today is that during Obama, the IRS was used to target conservatives, say, oh, well, that was just one renegade Lois Lerner. I doubt it. I don’t think so. The record doesn’t reflect that. But that was a data point. Okay?
And you moved through to today, and starting six years ago with Donald Trump, we saw the escalation of the lying and the use of big government against We the People. Lying, the FISA applications, the Russia, Russia, Russia hoax, all the different aspects of that that went on. And then the fortifying of the election, which is what they called it, the 2020 election, the use of the Covid misinformation, the use of all this stuff.
Today, you cannot give the benefit of the doubt to the FBI and the DOJ.
In fact, it’s the opposite. It’s the complete opposite. So what you need to know is we are on the brink of something really, really terrifying. But what’s going on?
Pause with me and let me walk you through how terrible this is, because we’re eight weeks, ten weeks from an election, and we’re watching the narrative machine kick in. Watch how the narrative machine works. Let me walk you through it.
What you need to know is the narrative machine is made up of unprecedented strength of three entities: big government, big media, and big tech. And in the past, you would have said, well, some of the people that are running each of those places are truly patriotic. They share the values of America. They won’t destroy the country, not today. You don’t know.
In fact, you know the opposite.
I don’t know the hearts and minds of the people that run big government and big tech and big media, but I can see the fruits of their work. And so here’s what the narrative machine is doing.
The narrative machine has said we, big government, must raid this place and must find the criminal evidence. That’s what they say. And then big media and big tech go into this amazing brazen braying, the braying of how and you go from Joe Scarborough to David Axelrod, all the commentators, CNN, MSNBC, all over the place braying about how incredible this is and how necessary it is, and it is unprecedented. Never happened. But we needed it because it’s, just, so it’s Donald Trump. Here we go. The walls are closing in for the 457th time.
But look, what’s happened is for a third of the country that has been brainwashed by big media, for a third of the country, the same third that has been brains rewired by big tech, for a third of the country that has seen that the best way to be successful, make money and be not accountable is big government. Big media, big tech, big government. A third of the country has completely decided will listen to whatever they’re told by the narrative machine. And the narrative machine knows that and all those powers know it.
So they’ve got a third of the country captive, literally mentally ill and captive by all these lies. And now they’re going for the rest of the country and they’re going for people and they’re saying, hey, you have to believe us. We wouldn’t do this if we didn’t, if it wasn’t necessary.
This has never happened because we had to do it. From the memes, from He’s Hitler. I know how you’re Hitler out of power. I know how they’d spin it. Of course, back Hitler was out of power too, once.
But it’s crazy. That’s the kind of thing they’ll say.
But here’s the reality. They are hunting down people who hold the positions that are in line with Trump and support him and support him. You can have the Trumpian positions generally. If you don’t support him, they’ll leave you alone. And I don’t know, I guess Liz Cheney actually doesn’t have the Trumpian positions, especially on the war. So that’s not a good example. But in general, if you’re not with Trump, they’re trying to block Trump. And the question becomes we’ll talk in a few moments with John Schlafly.
The question becomes, is it because they’re afraid he can win, which they should be, or they’re afraid what he’ll do in office? Which they have to be.
Because can you imagine the second term of Donald Trump, what he will do in terms of understanding what’s happening? Look again, if you’re in the swamp right now and you’re a Republican and say you’re a congressman or a senator or you’re a prominent governor and you don’t recognize that the ruling party, meaning the left and their people. If you don’t realize that they’re targeting us, meaning people like us that believe in Trump, then you’re not paying attention. You’re just not paying attention.
And the reality is that they will continue this until they’re stopped. So I’ve debated with John. Slapped offline. We’ll talk when he comes on. John pointed out that 91 days, the raid took place 91 days before the election. And there is a long standing tradition in the department of justice that they won’t do anything within 90 days of an election because they don’t want to be seen to interfere. As if, ask Hillary Clinton about Comey, for example, which is when he put something out a few weeks before, she said, well, those norms are blown.
I don’t agree with John. I think they’ll indict him next. And I think they’ll indict him next. They’ll probably have parts of the indictment will be sealed because they’ll say it’s classified. And that will be the mysterious part. It’s like the Mueller, remember when the Mueller investigation was going on, the Russia hoax, for years, we heard about leaks from the Mueller investigation, and the leaks would say, x or Y, really terrible. And when you went to Mueller and said, what do you say?
They say, we can’t comment. These are secret proceedings.
We can’t comment now. So you had what, big tech, big media, and big government. The big government leaked, big tech and big media weaponized it, and you had people believing lies, people believing deception, people believing leaks that couldn’t be confronted. I believe that Trump will be indicted, and a lot of it will be under seal.
And not the irony, the insanity of saying that the president United States couldn’t declassify things if he wanted to, would be the funniest, stupidest, most devastating part of it, because they’ll say, we can’t tell you what’s in there. It’s really bad. It’s really bad.
I have to say, we are on the brink if this succeeds in blocking Trump from running and blocking Trump from winning, and these people continue in power.
I’ll finish with this. Imagine if you raise kids, many of the listeners do. If you have children or have raised kids or raising them. When they do something wrong, you have to modify behavior. It doesn’t mean you have to spank your kid every time. But if you let your child get away with something once, they do it again. And if you let them get away with it a lot, they do it a lot, and they don’t think to themselves, I’m doing something I’m not supposed to be doing. Because if you let them get away with it, they just think it’s something they’re going to do. So if you let your kids watch TV and you say, TV is bad for you, but we’re going to let you watch TV, and you say TV is bad for you, we’re only going to limit it to an hour and then you say, well, there’s a good movie. You can watch 2 hours. And you say, well, there’s a baseball game on. You can watch the baseball game. By the time you’re done, they’re watching 5 hours of TV. This has happened to my family.
And then you get done with it, and you turn around and say, well, TV is bad for you.
In the kids formation, it’s been that they not only watch TV when they want it, they got away with it whenever they want it. That’s what’s happening right now. For six years, the left and the media and the narrative machine has succeeded and gotten away with it.
They don’t get held accountable for Benghazi. They don’t get held accountable for targeting Flynn in the Oval Office. They don’t get held accountable for when Susan Rice was instructed, ostensibly by someone maybe just came up with herself to email herself and say, we did everything by the book. They don’t get held accountable when Hillary does her email fiasco. They don’t get held accountable, period.
And so after a while, they say, we just got to keep going. We’re the righteous ones. We’re the ones that know the truth. We must go forward and continue to do what we’re doing. There is no accountability. We are on the brink. We are on the brink of really disastrous times. And I hope and pray it’s going to whip back and everyone’s going to get back to, hey, let’s do some, clean up the FBI, get better people, whatever it is, and be on. I don’t know if they can do that. I don’t think you can do it. I don’t know how you do it. We’re on the brink. America on the brink. That’s what’s happening. They ought to do CBS Nightline started as America on the brink or American terror, but it was the Iran hostages. That’s what we’re on. We’re on a watch now of whether we can hold this country. That’s where we are.
All right, I got to take a break. We’ll come back. We’ve got John Schlafly and a lot more. It’s Ed Martin here on the Pro America Report. Back in a moment.
