The following is a transcript from the Pro America Report.
Welcome, welcome, welcome. Ed Martin here on the Pro America Report. We have a lot to cover today, and I just have a few minutes. I’m going to save some of my time. I’m going to speak today. Two updates, two important updates for you, so stay tuned for these interviews.
Gregory Wrightstone, my friend who runs the Carbon Dioxide Coalition. Carbon Coalition? I can’t believe I’m doing it wrong. Now I’m getting it wrong on the air. I’ll get it right when I’m talking to him. His website is CO2coalition.org/. Anyway, we’re talking an update from him on the Manchin bill that is supposed to be so good for debt reduction, inflation reduction. He says it’s really bad. Gregory does.
And also we will talk with Todd Bensman. This is an important debate. I read a piece that he wrote at the Center for Immigration Studies. And I realized I got to have him on to walk us through, there’s a superhighway that opened, the migrant superhighway, illegal immigration superhighway opened about a week ago. He needs to walk us through what that is, and you will be stunned, as you usually are. So tune in for that.
All right, real quick, though, let me cover something I wanted to for a few days.
Did you see the story that Jon Stewart was pushing for some legislation to help veterans of 9/11? Now, that got a lot of attention. And that bill ultimately was improved, I think, and passed. But two people got involved in that policy argument.
Jack Posobiec, our old friend, and Raheem Kassam, also our old friend. Both of them, Jack got involved, saying, I’m a veteran too. I want to support this, but I want to make it better. And Jon Stewart got all mad at him, yelled at him, but then they calmed down and they ended up working together. But Raheem Kassam put up on social media that when he went over with Jack Posobiec, Jon Stewart got in his face.
Now, Raheem is kind of famous. He’s got the British accent. He was relatively famous when his friend and I think his old boss, Nigel Farage, was sort of at the top of his game. So Jon Stewart says to Raheem Kassam and Raheem recounts this.
Jon Stewart says, I hope that you’re enjoying this. This is what he says. I hope this is good for your brand.
That’s what Jon Stewart says to Raheem Kassam. Now, my point is just to say this. When the Democrats tell you, when they say something to others, to conservatives, when liberals say things to conservatives and others, they often will say, accuse you, Tucker Carlson has said this, of doing the very thing they’re doing.
Jon Stewart is clearly using support for the veterans to improve his brand. That’s as clear as can be. His brand is a left winger on everything. And yet, on this issue of the veterans, he’s changing his brand.
So he accuses Raheem Kassam of the very thing that he’s doing.
That’s how they always do it. The best example, of course, is the Russia, Russia, Russia hoax. The Russia Russia Russia hoax was, we accuse you, Trump, of colluding with the Russians. Turns out it was Hillary and the British and others that were colluding with the Russians.
Now, you wonder January 6, the accusation is you the people who came and people who doubted the election, you are insurrectionists. You are committed to doing something against the will of the people. Is that what they’re doing?
It’s worth asking, right? Every other time you see liberals, they attack you and say you’re doing this. It’s them that are doing it. It’s very good pattern. Tucker Carlson, again, has done segments on this. It’s a good pattern to watch. And that’s what you wonder.
But I just watched that Jon Stewart thing and I thought it’s good that there are people on both sides of the aisle can get together and pass something that’s meaningful. Although it’s lots of spending again and again and again. I mean, I wish we could cut some spending in bad places and spend it in good places, but it’s good when there’s a collaboration. But when it happens and when people object to some aspect of it, Jon Stewart says, I hope it’s good for your brand, Raheem Kassam.
I think that’s what you’re doing, Jon. I think it’s exactly what you’re doing. That’s the game you’re playing.
It’s Ed Martin here on the Pro America Report. Back in a moment.
