Welcome. Welcome, welcome. Ed Martin here on the Pro America Report. And we have some wonderful guests, as usual. Hey, let me ask you to do me a favor. If you don’t, will you please follow me on Twitter at @EagleEdMartin, on Facebook at Ed Martin Live. But it would be a big deal if you can help retweet, share whatever you can do. Spread the word @EagleEdMartin on Twitter. Big help for us to get the word out.
Okay, today we’ve got a couple of great guests we will be catching up with. As always, I love talking to these folks. And a new guest is with us today. His name is John, let me get it right. John Zadrozny, Zadrozny, deputy director of investigations at America First Legal. He’s going to talk about some of what is happening on the legal front with the Biden Administration. Also, we’ll talk with Andy Pollack, the amazing Andy Pollack. What a man. What a guy to talk to. His daughter, Meadow was killed in Parkland in the shooting in Florida a few years ago. And every time there’s a shooting, he emerges in a positive way to say, hey, what are you going to do to make your school safer? Why aren’t you doing these things? And he’s got a group that is sort of sponsoring his work that he’s working with that we’ll talk about. And we’ll just get a sense from him of what can be done and what he’s already seeing. And he is just an amazing guy. Andy Pollack, he’s written a book on his daughter. The book is available wherever you buy books. And the title of the book is Why Meadow Died, the people and policies that created the Parkland shooter and endangered America’s Students. So we will talk with him in a few moments.
Now, here’s the thing. What you need to know today, every time I get one of these WYNKs, the Daily WYNK. And please go over to ProAmericaReport.com. Sign up for the Daily Email. You get this information in your email every morning at 08:00 a.m. East coast time. And I just shake my head.
So there’s a piece that ran yesterday, late on Tuesday, and it ran in the Associated Press. And the headline is Cyber Agency says, Cyber Agency says Voting Software Vulnerable in Some States. And then the article, the AP article goes on to say that there has been analysis by the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency, CISA.
You may recall, CISA came out just after the 2020 election and said it was the safest election ever. But CISA has now said that in 16 States there is software that is vulnerable. And by vulnerable, they mean it could be hacked, it could be compromised, and it’s Dominion software.
Now, they don’t say, nobody has proven that Dominion software was hacked. But this is what we’ve been saying from the beginning.
What we’ve been saying from the beginning of time, I mean, I ran the election board in St. Louis in 2006, 2005 and six and into seven, I think it was. And what we were saying at the time was you have to understand when you switch over to computer systems that there is a possibility of security breach. And the security is only as good as the systems that surround it.
And when you hear the federal government’s agency and a big report issued that says in 16 States, the software of one of the biggest companies is vulnerable, the question is not whether it’s been hacked. We don’t know that.
But the question is when will it be hacked? It has to be hacked. There’s too much at stake.
You go into some of these counties or States or municipality races. There’s tens of millions of dollars, there’s dollars and power at stake. You’re going to see fraud.
But think about how wild this is, how with a world we’re living in, you were literally taken off of social media. You were literally pulled off of platforms if you questioned whether the elections might have been breached at any point.
Because why? Because they wanted to silence that debate and they want to make sure that we went forward. And as I have said over and over again, I believed that the Constitution had to play out. And at a certain point, it didn’t matter if we found out after the fact that there was cheating.You can’t go back. We have a stability in our Constitution, in our system that required us to keep going forward.
But it does feel like the way people were told to stay quiet was a part of the plan or part of a plan to shut it down.
And we talked yesterday about I mentioned that people talk about the election being rigged, but I’m talking specifically about the question now of whether systems can be compromised.
And let me be clear, there’s about three or four systems that are in play, okay? One is the poll books, the electronic records that surround the poll books, that surround the voter registration, and who is on the poll, on the voter rolls, the registration rolls. That’s one set of computer monitored, in theory, able to be compromised. By the way, just because something could be compromised doesn’t mean that you can’t keep doing elections.
Here’s an example. It is true that someone can break into a safe in a bank. That doesn’t mean you don’t have a safe in a bank. What it means is you don’t only have a safe in a bank. You have an electronic surveillance and you have a security guard and you have a system, you make the system secure. So back to my point.
There’s the voter registration rolls and the actual voter rolls on election day. That’s in a computer system. Then there’s the actual computer systems that catch votes, that accept votes. And then if you do it on paper, there’s a voting system that scans, that scans in the votes. And then there’s another set of vote. There’s another set of computer systems that count them to tabulate and keep a record of where the votes came in. And then usually there’s a centralized system that brings all the different systems together. There’s like four or five systems that are computer based.
And at least one of the major ones, according to the federal government, in a report, is able to be compromised in 16 States. Again, it doesn’t say it’s happened, doesn’t say it happened here, but it says there is a security problem.
You cannot just pretend that putting the money in the basement of the bank is good enough. You have to put the money in thebasement of the bank, in a vault. Then you have to say that’s not good enough. You have to put around in a system, electronic surveillance, a security guard.
Right now, we have people in office in this country who think that their election was on the up and up because they won.
And We the People are looking at it going, even if it wasn’t stolen from us this time, it could well be the next time, and it probably will if there’s enough at stake.
And again, over and over, I tell you, there are two duties of the election officials. One is to get a really good secure system and make sure that the system is working and it doesn’t get stolen. But two is have people believe in it because people will not participate in a system that they see is fraught with compromised parts, with aspects of it that may or may not be secure. And therefore, they just check out and they don’t bother because they say, you know what? I know what’s going on here. I’m not even going to bother.
And so the idea, again, that the AP, the Associated Press is writing a piece as if it’s not the biggest headline in the history of the world that some of the Dominion, and I believe Dominion was one of the entities that sued other people. Didn’t Dominion sue people? And maybe the people that said something about them went too far, alleged a specific action that didn’t happen.
But now the federal government says Dominion has software systems that are not secure enough or better said, can be compromised. Well, again, back to our bank vault. As Willy Sutton said when they asked him, why do you rob banks?He said, banks is where the, banks are where the money is.
If you don’t think that as the size and scope of government has grown bigger and bigger, that it’s not clearer and clearer to people that power is being in office, and therefore, if you can steal an election, aren’t you gonna? Isn’t it likely isn’t it likely that people, if they could, would? I’m not saying I know for sure. I don’t know for sure in 2016, when Hillary said it was done, I don’t know in 2020 when Trump said it was done, I don’t know in 2011 when Ron Klain said it was done, I don’t know, I don’t know. I don’t have the evidence in front of me in a court. But I do now have a report from the federal government that tells me something specific.
And again, my final point what you need to know is where are the leaders who are not saying simply vote for my team but instead saying we have to have a system that is transparently trustworthy. If we don’t get that, we are going to lose. This is a threat to the Republic, because we’re going to lose the confidence of our fellow man in the system and over time it’s not just that people will stop participating.
It becomes this cascading effect it becomes this sort of cascading effect where more and more folks fall out and into the cascade away from not just participation, but belief in the nation. In our ethics. You know, I always tell the nation state is the nation state is the point the nation part is ethnic, religious, cultural together and the state is the government. We lose that cascading away from us the more we have a system that seems to be so broken and leaders that won’t even fix it, won’t even be serious.
All right, we’ll take a break. When we come back we’ll talk with Andy Pollack, the author of Why Meadow Died, about these school shootings and a lot more. It’s Ed Martin here in the Pro America Report, back in a moment.
