The following is a transcript of the first segment of the Pro America Report.
Welcome, welcome, welcome. Ed Martin here on the Pro America Report, many, many things to cover.
I hope you enjoyed that interview I did yesterday with Katalin Novák, the Minister for Families in Hungary. Extraordinary lady.
I got an email from some folks that listened to that online on the podcast. You can go to ProAmericaReport.Com and find out more and listen there.
And one of them emailed me, and actually a direct message on Twitter @eagleedmartin, and said, you really need to look look at the list of specifically pro family policies that Hungary keeps pushing. Tax incentives for families, tax breaks… I’m sorry, incentives for families. A young couple can get a loan, but also tax breaks if you have more than two kids, all kinds of things.
Anyway, very specific pieces of legislation and policy that they’ve been enacting. So, very cool interview. I hope you can track it down. ProAmericaReport.com and get a look over. Get a little listen over there.
Also at ProAmericaReport.Com, you can sign up for the daily email. It’s the WYNK. WYNK. What you need to know, what you need to know. The daily WYNK goes out each morning, Monday through Friday. It gets in you inbox at five am Pacific time, eight am East Coast time.
And you can get basically, what I would say is my hand picked key links, key stories, and key issues. And I’m getting up to, like, 80,000 people get that thing every morning. So you’re gonna want to check that out.
All right. In a few moments, we’re gonna talk with Todd Bensman. I actually had to prerecord this interview with him because he’s down on the border. He’s the senior policy, Senior Fellow for National Security at the Center for Immigration Studies. Guy’s really, really smart.
The good thing about periodically you meet these people that are involved in an issue, and they tend to be in the same direction as you are… as I am. So I’m not sure he’s a conservative across the board, but on the issue of immigration, he says he’s like, you got to secure the border. It’s crazy.
But he’s mostly an investigative journalist, so he just digs into things. He doesn’t seem to have the ability to kind of get too histrionic. He just kind of says what’s there. And in this interview, in just a few moments, you’ll hear, he says, it doesn’t matter what Joe Biden says. It doesn’t matter when Kamala Harris visits the border and says, Don’t come, don’t come. Don’t come.
Excuse me. She didn’t visit the border. She went to Guatemala and said that. He said, he told me literally, you’ll hear, in a few moments on the border, illegals and individuals will send selfies back. And they’ll post messages on social media saying, I made it through. I’m through.
And he spends time with illegals. They talk about it. They were actually, they’re waiting. They wait for a message. Oh, so and So made it through. Here’s a picture of him, a selfie. He said back, texted back, a selfie posted on social media.
All that stuff. So extraordinary. So we will talk to him a few minutes.
Alright. Today, what do you need to know today? What you need to know is, at this point, is there any doubt? I mean, any doubt that Joe Biden is, Let’s say it generously. Joe Biden’s policies are in China’s, Communist China’s favor. Or you could say it kind of against him. He’s a stooge for China. He is a stooge for China.
One of the two is true. Either way, it doesn’t really matter much to me because here’s the reality.
Earlier on Wednesday, Joe Biden announced and did it by executive order. He reversed the lawsuits… So Donald Trump took steps against TikTok because TikTok is owned by the Communist regime and it had become so popular with so many Americans, it was becoming a massive data gathering tool for the Communist regime.
And that was expressed by everybody. Everybody agreed there’s no such thing as an independent Chinese company.
And TikTok is owned by the Chinese and therefore the Communist regime. And they’re getting tons of data on Americans. So Trump basically cracked down and said, You can’t have this, you can’t have it owned like that. You got to have different structure or whatever.
He didn’t quite ban it. It’s reported that he banned it. He more put checks on it that made it very difficult to envision how it would go forward. And for a minute there was a conversation about is TikTok going to be purchased by somebody else. How what are they going to do with it?
But the reality is this, on Wednesday morning, Joe Biden said TikTok can come back and do whatever they want within a few constraints.
And so immediately, the lawsuit the TikTok filed against the Trump executive order is probably, I don’t know if it’s mooted yet, but it will be no longer a valid lawsuit because that rule is gone. So they can drop that lawsuit.
And my point here is, how many times are we going to see conduct by Joe Biden that is so preferential to China’s interest? I mean, think about it, negotiating to re enter the Paris Climate Accords, which is effectively a massive tax on America. And the money is given to the international community when China cheats on climate change. That’s just a known thing, right?
I mean, the ban on Chinese institutions, excuse me, American institutions getting money from the Chinese, especially higher education. You know, Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida, just signed a law that says that Florida higher education will not have these deals where they get Communist Chinese money to put up Confucius institutes on campuses because they become places where you can educate and reeducate just like the Communists want to do.
It’s one of their goals. So we now have President Biden under… Oh he cancels the Keystone pipeline, causing all sorts of problems with our energy supply, which China loves. Because China… Oh here’s another on chip manufacturing. We were now saying we don’t want… no interest in Greenland, which has a bunch of the trace elements that are important for making chips and other high tech stuff.
And China, Meanwhile, was buying up the whole world on that front. Controls something like 80% of these special trace elements that, I forget them – I’m using the wrong phrase there, but that are protected that you need to have and must therefore be protected to have your high tech work. China sends an aircraft to Mars, they’re racing to space.
They’re racing a nuclear. And we’re just plugging along. Anyway, it really is getting ridiculous at this point. And and I would say that Donald Trump didn’t get this done either. To be fair, the Chinese regime knows and sends fentanyl to our country to kill our kids.
And we’re still standing around pretending it’s okay, pretending it doesn’t matter. At this point, And you know what? Most of America won’t understand much of the things I’m talking about, they’re in the weeds, these details of different things, but they’ll understand that one guy (Trump) banned TikTok, and the other guy (Biden) said, Yeah, have at it.
And, you know, many Americans may say, Oh, that was dumb to ban TikTok, it’s just an app. You don’t understand what’s happening. You don’t understand what’s happening. If you think that millions and millions of people on a Chinese app that the data is being gathered isn’t used against us, remember, these are the people, the Communist regime, these are the people that have a file on every citizen of their country.
It’s called a Dengan. They admit that. It used to be a Manila folder. You could see it. There was a famous picture in the New York Times. Remember, the late Phyllis Schlafly showed it to me of a massive, massive storage facility with records.
Almost you could picture it almost looked like filing cabinets one after another. And they were filled with Dengan, which was this term for a folder that when you were born, you got a folder created.
Now it’s an electronic folder. And you know what China is not doing? Stopping with their own people. If you got a billion-two in your Dengan machine, you might as well start adding the 350,000,000 Americans and they’re doing it.
And it’s amazing to watch. It’s amazing to watch.
If I was living in Taiwan, I’d be terrified because I’d be thinking that they’re about to do what they did to Hong Kong in Taiwan. It’s going to be a little different because they were able to convince the British to leave Hong Kong so that Hong Kong could be so-called independent for a while. And then the Chinese basically took it over.
Well, I don’t know how they’ll do that quite as cleanly with Taiwan, and I don’t want them to, but I feel like they’re gonna and I don’t think they’re going to be impressed by the so-called President United States and his, what, rhetoric?
Yeah, it’s a mess. All right, everybody we’ll take a break. We’ll come back and we’ll talk with Todd Bensman and get an update on what’s going on at the border in just a moment.
