The following is a transcript from the Pro America Report.
Welcome, welcome. Welcome. Hope you had a great weekend, everybody. And now we are off to the races. This is a great week and in a few moments we will talk with our my friend Todd Bensman. And I’m excited to do that. I’m also going to spend this this what you need to know This WYNK talking about him. He’s, it’s finally here. It’s finally here. His book OVERRUN from Post Hill Press is finally available this week. He’s got another excerpt. Last week it was the New York Post. This week it’s The Washington Times. I think it’s chapter 4. The expert, the excerpt is from this time. So it’s called OVERRUN: How Joe Biden unleashed the greatest border crisis in U.S. history, there’s a major event over at the the National Press Club this week to highlight the book. It is just great news. I mean he, this is a hard working guy. Todd Bensman. Toddbensman.com, by the way, is his website. He’s a hard working guy, cares about the issues. He’s not particularly partisan. I think he is political, meaning he sees that the political parties and one party in particular the Democrats, are allowing this thing to go forward. But like a good journalist, he’s dug into the why. He’s dug into the what’s happening here? So the book is OVERRUN. It’s great the title is OVERRUN and it’s great. It catches your attention. Ohhh as greatest border crisis in the US history. What does it mean? Why did it happen? Who’s in charge? All that kind of stuff he goes into in this book. So we have had him on, I’d say, 15 times in the last year. At least, yeah, no, that’s about right. About about 15 times in the last year, certainly more than, certainly once a month and sometimes more than once a month.
But his perspective, he’s down on the border. He’s not a kid. I don’t mean that disrespectful to the kids, but he’s, you know, he’s been a journalist for a couple of decades. He worked in the private or he worked in public sector for the government for about 9 years, I think in a senior position of Homeland Security down in Texas. So he’s overlapping with these issues. He’s at the Center for Immigration Studies. His first book was about national security. It’s on my bookshelf. I’m looking for it, even as we’re talking and it’s straight across from me, B on my bookshelf is up just above my eye level across there it is, and and he he’s just important. He’s an important guy marking both history, the history of what’s happening, but also, as I said, why? Why is it happening? Who’s in charge? His first book, by the way, I was looking at my, got my glasses. Finally. America’s Covert Border War, America’s Covert Border War. Todd Bensman and his new book OVERRUN. So it’s a very exciting day. Here’s what I’m hoping. I’m hoping that we will start to see Todd Bensman and the issues he’s identified more widely. I believe, and we talked about this last week, I I think with Numbers USA, we were talking with Chris Chmielenski of Numbers USA. The public cares about this issue and at a certain point when the media is confronted with an issue that the public cares about.
Plus the fact that there is things to cover, meaning there’s actually, you know, aspects of this story that are ongoing. They will ultimately run towards the coverage, run towards the, the, the coverage, the attention, because they’re gonna want clicks. They’re gonna want people to pay attention. They’re gonna want people to Be engaged with their website. Now, the New York Post and The Washington Times are both, I’d say center right. Right? They’re more conservative than liberal. The Washington Times certainly has that reputation, New York Post more, more so in the last few years, I guess certainly that’s true. So that’s not quite the crossover that I hope we see. But I hope because there’s lots of non conservative non Republicans who care about this issue. I hope we’re gonna see more and more coverage. So congratulations to Todd Bensman.
What you need to know is help him by buying this book. Help us by spreading the word. Help America by having these issues covered more. We need it to happen that way. We need people to engage on this issue. The issue of the border, the issue of why, who’s in charge, what’s happening?
One of the chapters in the book, I’ll try to remember to ask him about it. One of the chapters. In the book. Is about. Is about the fact that there are left-leaning Bernie Sanders-types that got basically access to this to the, To the administration and they sort of won the battle to control the direction of things. And that made all the difference. That made all the difference. Once you had that. Once you had that control. By the Bernie for, by these it’s not not fair to call them only Bernie folks. They’re not just Bernie folks, but they’re people who had a vested interest in. In pushing forward with the left agenda, the far left agenda on this, and so once you had the once you had them in charge, once that that was the group that was in charge, that was the direction that we were destined to go and there has not been a course correction. And so when you see this book and you start to understand exactly what’s happened, it’s going to change your perspective on what’s at stake. It’s it’s, it’s actually probably because this president is so old and tired and it was never an executive that he’s just been dominated by these forces. He’s dominated by forces that are in charge of our policies. And they’re just running things. Obama wasn’t as far left on this stuff as he was now. Maybe it’s this sort of Overton window idea that, you know, Obama got us a little further and then people go a little further. Well, Biden’s going all the way. And it doesn’t look like anybody can stop it. Right now.
But we have to get people willing to stop it and then get after it. Because there’s too much at stake. Way too much at stake. So that’s what you need to know today. Alright, let’s take a break. We’re also talking a few moments with a man, a German writer who’s written a book called in Defense of Capitalism, and we’ll talk to him about that book, which is launching this week also. So a couple of books, but mostly what you need to know is Todd Bensman deserves to be celebrated. What an American hero! And I hope I hope, I hope that we’re talking more and more about him and about importantly the issues what he’s been trying to drive attention towards so.
