The following is a transcript from the Pro America Report.
Welcome, Welcome, welcome. It’s. Ed Martin here on the Pro America Report. Great to be together. Thank you for tuning in and thank you for listening. And more importantly, thank you for understanding what time it is, how important things are right now it is a big, big deal right now. What’s happening. I just was finishing a substack a more a lengthier, not more lengthy more lengthy lengthier post over at Phil’s, Excuse me, proamericareport.com ProAmericaReport.com I will send that out, it’s on sub stack. I’ll send that out in the next couple of hours, but I I it is on the same topic we’re about to talk about. I’m all fired up about it and that is the border.
The border is no longer. It’s not even remotely anymore about the preferences on immigration, jobs, anything like that.
It’s 100% about national security. It’s time to stand up and step up. It’s a big, big deal. And we’ll talk about in a moment.
Now, please go to promericareport.com. Sign up there for the substack emails. But as importantly, Cruise on over to the PhyllisSchlafly.com. Get signed up for our daily e-mail the WYNK. What you need to know comes out every morning at 8:00 AM East Coast Time, 5:00 AM Pacific Time. Everywhere in between. Upwards of 40 thousand, 50 thousand people. I can’t remember who, depending on how which list we send, they get that every morning. We never trade your e-mail address. We never sell it. We never rent it to a good candidate. Nothing. We keep it to inform you. What is the WYNK? The e-mail gives you a couple of key links, a couple of key stories, a couple of key ideas. And then one, one priority, sometimes 2, 1 priority, that’s the WYNK. What you need to know.
Today’s WYNK is this simple clean. Our border crisis, southern as well as northern, our insanity by the Biden administration is a national security crisis. It is about self-defense. If you are a Moral person. If you are an ethical person, let me say it differently. If you spend time or training reflecting on Ethics and morality. You will sometimes get into these conversations about just war theory, justifiable self-defense. You know, even in the context of criminal, you’ll have people say things like, you know, not guilty by reason of insanity. All these kinds of ways that sort of Change how your moral culpability is, because if you kill someone in cold blood. You’re a murderer. And Homicide is an ethical as well as a a legal crime, a a crime against the law of the land, and also a crime against the human being.
But the question becomes when is self-defense allowable, right? If someone is coming into your home and you have every reason to believe that they’re going to kill you, can you kill them first? Of course, of course. Now I’m talking morally, I’m not giving legal advice. I’m not saying in your state you may have different laws on on so-called Castle Doctrine. That’s when someone comes and invade your home or even. Stand your ground, which is a legal preference for you not having to yield to someone.
But let’s say this, at this point you don’t have to be an expert in geopolitics. You don’t have to be an expert in any kind of of world economies, world political ideologies to know this. Coming across our southern border and northern border are people in in numbers that is completely uncontrollable and the lie of it is that the Biden administration has said we will accept everyone that comes as long as they know the trick language, the secret code word, open sesame. If you say open sesame, you can get in. If you say I’m a refugee, you can get in and the law will protect you. If you have the magic words and the magic words, by the way, they’re potent words. They’re strong words. They’re there’s things like I’m a refugee. I’m a refugee because I’m coming from a place where I fear for my life, my safety, my family.
But they’re teaching these people to say it so that they can stay, say it and stay, say it and stay. And that’s what they’re doing. And and there’s by the way, there’s lots and lots of people that should be held accountable, that they’re guilty of subverting the law and the and what the law is supposed to do.
There is supposed to be a law again, morally, if. If I run. If you are in danger and you’re running for your life and you show up at my house and you say I have to get away, I’m running for my life. I have a moral obligation to let you in, but if you’re lying about it, I I don’t have a moral obligation. And if I’m told that you’re lying about it, if I can see it, I’m not. Even asking are You really in danger? I’m just accepting it, which is what the Biden administration does. It falls apart and we are in danger of losing our nation because we decided to lie about the law and let other people lie and we are being invaded now.
Again, take a book like Overrun by Todd Bensman, our friend Todd Bensman. Bombardier Press Overrun: How Joe Biden unleashed the greatest border crisis in the in U.S. history, it’s really good on what Biden did. But it’s his predecessor book that is more important. Todd Bensman has been on this program. He’s been on my program and the podcast we’ve created must be 50 standalone links of his pieces, where he’s talking about these issues.
His first book from a couple of years ago now is called America’s Covert Border War. And when you look closely at that. It’s the untold story of the nation’s battle to prevent jihadist infiltration. At that time, he was talking about jihadist infiltration at the border. But now if you listen, he’s just saying it’s not just jihadist, it’s just anyone come. Military majority of these people are not a family of five with a Our Lady of Guadalupe Icon coming in to spend to create a new life. That’s not what’s happening.
What’s happening is military age. Men are being told all over the world. Come to America, get a foothold. Come to America. Get in the country. And whether there is a threat. Excuse me. Whether there is an actionable threat, whether we know that something bad will happen a month from now 10 months from now, a year from now, five years from now. Doesn’t matter. When you have a border, you have to make judgments. And the judgment has to be wait a second for our self-defense the system is breaking down and when governor, a governor of Texas, Abbott says Holy cow. I’m worried about my people. I know that Joe Biden’s gotta worry about America and the border is is is, is a federal priority.
But it’s a federal priority, meaning the feds get a first crack at it. Not they can let the place be overrun.
Self-defense of Texans is at least coming right up against the federal question of open borders and and Greg Abbott is saying I’m not gonna risk it. I’m not gonna risk it for my people and and so we have more important than anything we’ve talked about on this issue. This is not about as similar as- assimulation. It’s not about. About the size and scope of the illegal population or the immigration population coming in and flooding our schools and our social services, it’s not about the fact that if we don’t protect Social Security for the people that paid in, the system will break down. It’s not about all those things. It’s not even about the question of jobs where some of our people in our country, mostly big business. Would prefer more people for work so that they can have lower pay, pay lower salaries, but they say get better workers. Whatever. It’s not about any of that. That is a side. It’s a –
When someone is breaking into your home, you’re not debating whether the school system didn’t teach them well. You’re not debating whether we should have done more to promote unity in our community. You’re not.
When someone’s breaking in your home when someone is threatening your life, you have a right Of self-defense that shifts dramatically and that’s where we are.
And what you need to know is more and more people in this country are sick of it. They see it and your job is to understand what’s happening and see it and be sick of it. And to be supportive and I look looks like up to 14 or 15 states have joined Texas and saying we’re, you know, Governor Abbott, we’re on your side on this. And saying to each other. Hey, hey, hey, hey. We’re not gonna take this. We’re not gonna allow the because it’s again, it’s not a preference about jobs or the future. It is about a future. It’s a. It’s a preference.
About whether we have a nation or not, whether we have a nation.
And and you can overlay fentanyl, it’s outrageous that we’re killing our people. You know, a million, 2 million a year from fentanyl coming across the border. That is outrageous. That’s horrendous. It’s another aspect of this. It’s a reason why probably a reason why the the the border is corrupt. It’s probably a a reason why the the border policy has been corrupt, because there’s money and there’s influence, but that doesn’t matter now.
What matters is the reason to stop what’s happening at the border is because we are being invaded and the reason to stop the invasion Is about our nation. It’s about self-defense. You don’t have to go past that. You can say the Biden administration’s policies are built on lies and the lies are a threat to our nation, and therefore we are not willing, not for another moment, not for another year, certainly not for another term to do. To do, allow this to continue. And and there are two, three in front of you positions. Actions if you want that, you can take.
One is support your state in in in supporting this fight support your state if you’re in in Missouri, where I’m from. If you’re in the Commonwealth of Virginia where I live. If you’re from Nebraska, California, wherever you are, ask your state to support. In California is probably not going to do it, but there might be people who can. Big state if there’s 40 million people in California and I forget the exact number right now, there’s probably 25,000,000 that are really liberal, but there’s probably 10 million that are conservatives. That’s a lot of people. More people than the entire population of Missouri, for example, so #1 stand up for your people,
#2. Demand that there be change and not amnesty, not a rollover at the federal level in Congress. And three, you got to change the President.
We got to take a break. Ed Martin, that’s your WYNK. Be right back. Pro America Report back in a moment.
