The following is a transcript from the Pro America Report.
Welcome, welcome, welcome. Ed Martin here on the Pro America Report. Great to be with you. Please visit me on on the social media @eagleedmartin on Twitter, @Edmartin on Parler and everywhere else. Parler looks like it’s going to be purchased by Kanye West, which makes me happy. I’ll go over to Parler more often, but I’m over on Twitter the most @EagleeEdMartin and go to PhyllisSchlafly.com and track everything there.
Great to be with you. I hope you had a great weekend and things are going well. Go Padres.
What an awesome thing for the Padres to succeed. It’s a great baseball team. That’s just a great baseball team right now. Playing great baseball, is fun to watch. I hate to say it. Don’t tell the fearless producer, greatest producer in radio, Noah Dingley, who is a Dodgers fan. Don’t tell him I said so, in case he doesn’t listen closely. It was fun to watch the Dodgers get knocked out. Don’t tell him I said that.
But anyway, well, I hope you are having a great beginning of your week. There’s a lot going on, and we’ll have a couple of great interviews coming up.
Joe David. Bfat.com. I don’t know how to describe him. He came to my attention because he is a writer and he has a website, Bfat.com. Bfat.com. Which sounds like what is he, some sort of diet guy or something. Well, it’s actually books for all times as the name of his blog, but Bfat.com. And he’s a writer.
And so he sent me an essay about his experience purchasing food at a local supermarket. And I said, let me get him on the phone. I’m on the phone, on the show, so we’re going to talk to him about it. The essay is called The Food Peddlers, and it’s about food production, supply chains, et cetera, et cetera. So we’ll here what he has to say.
Also, we’ll get an update on politics five weeks before the election out in Idaho, our old friend Tammy Nichols, soon to be Senator Tammy Nichols, she’ll be elected to the state Senate in a few weeks in Idaho. She’ll join us and give us an update on what’s going on. There’s been a lot of battles in Idaho between the rhinos and the conservatives and the Republican Party. But there remains a big showdown for attorney General, where the Republican Raúl Labrador, former congressman, is running for attorney general as a Republican. He beat the Republican rino in the primary, the incumbent, and now he’s facing a Democrat.
And the Republicans are lining up. Against the Republican. Against Raúl Labrador. So it’s still interesting, although I think it’ll turn out fine.
Which reminds me, which reminds me, it is a red tsunami.
It’s a red tsunami. The pollsters and the pundits are catching up to what I’ve been telling you for months. It’s not a red wave. It’s a red tsunami.
It is 94, but it’s not Newt’s ’94. It’s 1894, when Republicans because the economy tanked and the Democrats ran the country into a ditch in 1893. In 1894, Republicans won a 110 net gain in seats. Now I don’t think it’ll be 110, but it’s going to be 50 or 60 or 70. You won’t even believe it.
There’s going to be a governor from New York who’s a Republican. Lee Zeldin, he’s going to win.
There’s going to be senators. You’re going to have a New Hampshire senator Republican, an Arizona senator, a Nevada senator. You’re going to have a Colorado senator who’s a Republican. It’s unbelievable.
It’s a red tsunami that’s coming. Why? Well, because you can’t think about your favorite pet issue if you can’t afford milk. You see what I’m saying? You hear me? You can’t afford to debate your pet issue if you cannot fill your gas up, the gas tank. And that’s what the American people – you cannot worry about whether you have abortion rights access in the 27th week of pregnancy if you can’t walk down the street in every major city without being beaten or attacked, which is what’s happening. Where was I? Where was I? I got to think about this now.
Wherever I was, I was talking on the phone, so I wasn’t there. I was talking to somebody that said, you can’t go out in that town after dark. There’s been stick ups.
Let me get this, all up on Capitol Hill. I went for a walk. I saw a friend of mine. I haven’t seen him in years. He said, I haven’t seen you for years. He said, I live up here with my wife and our kid. I said, wow, this is a great place to live. It’s so fun. You can walk to the market there. You can walk up to church. You can walk to school.
He said, there’s been ten stick ups in the last six months, armed robbery in the neighborhood. As soon as it gets dark, who knows what happens? So there you have it. You can’t worry about all the extra stuff. You cannot worry about all the extra stuff if you cannot walk down the street. You get me? You see what I’m saying?
Now comes the news, which is gently being written about, that the global economy is in chaos, and we’ve got near nuclear war in the Ukraine versus Russia war we shouldn’t care about. So the global chaos is economic as well as military.
So now here comes now comes a piece in Politico. I love reading Politico because it’s left but smart. They’re left, but good writers, and so they truly spin things. Here’s a piece that ran over the weekend.
The global economy is in chaos. Nobody’s coming to the rescue. Okay? Okay. The global economy is in chaos. Nobody’s coming to the rescue. That sounds pretty daunting. That sounds pretty bad.
Then the subtitle the sub headline is the Global Turmoil provides the latest test of US influence over international affairs after the Biden administration sought to reengage the world in the post-Trump era.
Reengage the world? What do you mean, reengage the world? How so?
During the Trump administration, they signed the Abraham Accords, where real Arabs, real Muslims, real powerful, nonchristians, nonJews, signed peace deals with Israel, where the United Arab Emirates was doing things like deciding that they would get along with people, including Israel. This is what happened in the world.
We had our energy costs so low. We’re pumping oil, we’re refining oil, we’re transporting oil around the world. We’re fracking. We’re doing it so well and so fast in America that the Saudis no longer were in charge of much. I mean, they sold their oil, but OPEC was not a bully because we were bigger and we were benign. And so much so that in the places where the world where nuclear war was possible, iran stayed humbled and North Korea got quiet. Didn’t care to battle with us, didn’t care to make trouble, didn’t care to throw missiles over Japan. I think they did that recently.
In other words, in the period of time during Trump where they claim we disengaged, in this article. Global economy. That somehow. Oh. Biden is trying, Biden has reengaged, what’s he reengaged by, pouring money into green stuff.
Green investments. Which has made gas and oil and natural gas prices go through the roof and empowered the Saudis and empowered the Venezuelans and empowered other parts of the world who don’t like us. Don’t like Israel. Don’t really even like some of the Western democracies in Europe.
And so it’s our fault? And move over to Russia. Do you know what Putin never did? Invade Ukraine or anybody else while Trump was in. He knew enough not to do that. And even as Trump hassled Putin over Nordstream Two and tried to deny the permits, and Germany was begging for the permits, and Germany was going around America to get Russian natural gas, liquid natural gas, as well as oil, but mostly natural gas. They’re going around us, Germany. We’re basically just saying the world’s going to be safe.
China’s got tariffs under Trump, china’s on its heels under Trump, and China’s on the march now. Why? Not because they’ve marched on us.
Because they’re taking advantage of the broken world that is Joe Biden’s. Joe Biden did it.
Don’t blame the global economy or the chaos or the wars on Trump’s disengagement. Joe Biden’s in charge. Not for ten minutes, not for ten months, for two years now, I guess a little less than two years, 20 months.
It’s Joe Biden’s mess. And here’s the reality. It’s getting worse.
And the only thing we can hope is that you’re going to see the voters of this country punish the Democrats in November and try to change the direction, because it’s true.
The global economy is in chaos. And when they say nobody’s come to the rescue, what they mean is Biden can’t come to the rescue.
America could. We could.
We could do it tomorrow. We could get control of the border. We could stop the fentanyl tomorrow. We could stop the cartels tomorrow.
We could start pumping oil tomorrow. We could start fracking tomorrow. You could do whatever you want if you just get over the simple fact that today and yesterday and everything Joe Biden has been doing is a failure.
It’s a failure. There’s no getting around that.
The only question is who comes to the rescue? I hope and pray it’s America.
All right, we got to take a break. We’ll come back, we’ll talk about food and food safety with Joe David and then Tammy Nichols, state representative from Idaho, and a lot more. It’s Ed Martin here on the Pro America Report.
We will be back in a moment.
