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. Well, we’ve reached a point where the news is almost as disturbing as you can imagine about the conduct of our government.
And to be honest, it’s to be expected when you talk about human motivation, incentives for human beings. One of the most obvious ones is if you get away with it, you’ll do it again. If you do something that everyone’s told you is wrong, but there’s no penalty, you’ll do it again. It is as obvious as anything.
And what we know in America is we got a system in rules. We got laws, the Constitution, it’s supposed to hold people accountable. And I think it’s failed.
So we’re going to talk about that right now. It’s Ed Martin. It’s the Pro America Report. Thank you for turning in. Please visit ProAmericaReport.com. ProAmericaReport.com.

And it’s what you need to know.
The daily WYNK, very popular with people, gives you a couple of links, key points, and makes what I think is what you need to know. And so that’s that.
The other thing to happen when you visit ProAmericaReport.com is you can go and there’s thousands and thousands of standalone links, as well as a podcast of this show where you can go ahead and listen to these great interviews we’ve had. We have some of the best interviews, authors, politicians, all kinds of people.
You’re going to want to do that. So Pro America Report, ProAmericaReport.com. Okay.
So what am I talking about when I tell you that what you need to know today is unmasking… Unmasking is what’s happened to Tucker Carlson. And it’s the same thing that happened to Mike Flynn and dozens of others at the end of the Obama administration.
It was done by admission by Susan Rice. It was done after Obama lost, excuse me, Clinton lost and Trump won in November of 2016. And they went about unmasking.
I think it was up to 30, but I’d have to check to be sure. But it was some big number of people who were unmasked, meaning that they had to go and in National security circles, if an American citizen is being monitored and there is not a reason to put their name in the documents, you don’t do that because when you pass around a national security document, especially a briefing at the top levels of government, it goes to dozens and dozens of people. And so there’s a secrecy, a protection.
In the case of Susan Rice when she requested on behalf of her office, which was the President United States, which he has the power to unmask anything, just like the President of the United States has the power to declassify anything whenever he wants.
And so because the President is the head of executive branch, he can say I declassify everything he wants. He’s got that authority.
So Susan Rice in 2016, after the November election, she started unmasking all these people. And it was a setup. The setup was unmasked the mall so that you could then let the outsiders leak it.
And when it was leaked, it was then able to become the story. And it’s how the Russia Russia Russia investigation was done. I mean, how that hoax was perpetrated.
It was how they went after Mike Flynn. Unmasking by Susan Rice was absolutely, positively wrong. And it should have been investigated, and she should have been prosecuted. I have to think there was some way to hold her accountable.
At the very least, there should have been a requirement that she explained why she was unmasking all these people. Okay.
And so the only thing, the only thing, absent some sort of investigation to find out any rationale which has not been clear to the public.
The only rationale that is clear is targeting your political enemies, trying to cause problems for your political enemies. There was no national security issue that anyone can see, you know, and by the way, Mike Cernovich did this. He actually wrote about this, and he broke the story of Susan Rice.
And when he did, they wrote about it. And they said, Oh, it’s no big deal. I mean, that’s not a big deal. But this is what has to happen. I mean, people have to do this.
And when she was unmasking all these Trump aides. Oh, no, that was just a thing. In fact, Cernovich tweeted about this. He was right then.
And what happened, as he pointed out, was when it became clear that it was happening, the media and the establishment went about saying, well, she’s got to do that. She got a right to do it. She’s got to do it. And there’s nothing to see here.
Tucker Carlson had the same thing happen. If you believe that the NSA only found his electronic communications because he was talking to someone with ties to Russia. And I’m not sure I believe that.
I don’t know why I would believe them in anything. But if that’s true, he should have never been unmasked. In other words, he should have had his identity protected. He was not the target of the investigation.
Instead, he was unmasked and leaked because, by the way, if you leak someone who’s not been unmasked, if you leak someone who’s masked that’s a real serious crime. That’s a known crime. You’ll get prosecuted.
But if someone’s unmasked, somehow, it lowers it dumb. Well, not somehow. It lowers the threshold of the problem with what you’ve done.
So my point here is think about what happened when Biden was in the Vice Presidency, when he was vice President. He was in the Oval Office. And he was saying, Oh, Yeah, Let’s go After Flynn on the Logan Act, and that was always that was a suggestion.
That’s what they did. But the other person in the room was Susan Rice with all the other apparatus. And she was the one that was unmasking everybody. Unmasking Trump aides, causing all this chaos, and then fostering it on the outside.
She’s back in power. She was then the National Security Advisor. Now she’s a Domestic Policy Advisor. She’s running things. When people say who’s running the White House, it’s Susan Rice.
And so suddenly we have the NSA targeting. Again, we don’t know anything yet because we can’t get to read their minds.
But the only plausible inference, let’s say it differently, one plausible inference. Inference… could be others. I can’t think of any others that are plausible.
One plausible inference is they’re unmasking the people that they don’t like, the political enemies. And by the way, now we have a track record.
And again, my point here is to take this full circle when you have an American culture that at least at least preaches accountability, when laws are broken and demands accountability, when it’s publicly noted.
I’m not saying that there’s not people that did something wrong that pay their lawyers a lot of money and they somehow get off this.
And I’m not saying it’s a perfect system, but there is a system that says you’re held accountable. And Susan Rice and her unmasking from four plus years ago was not held accountable.
In fact, she was praised, as I just said to you, Cernovich points out, she was praised for what she did. Oh, Yeah, we got to do it.
And so what the lesson was from the people that have the opportunity to target people. Yeah, you can get away with it. And that’s where we are right now.
The NSA is not apologizing. They’re not saying this, they did something wrong. No one is, I haven’t heard someone say they’re going to investigate why Tucker Carlson was unmasked.
You know, Andy Surabian, who is a political guy, does a lot of stuff. And Surabian actually tweeted something I thought was pretty good. He said, you know, now that this has happened, what could the, quote, National security justification be for unmasking Tucker Carlson, especially if it’s because he was setting up an interview with a leader, an international leader, no matter what.
Everybody does that.
So, I mean, again, I think we would justify maybe maybe if the NSA is listening into any time a journalist goes and talks to the embassy, the Russian embassy, and says, Hey, we want to interview Putin.
That’s probably okay in the sense that they’re listening to the operatives from the Russians here. But what’s not okay is that it’s then leaked and unmasked. Both of those things are problems. One, it’s leaked to Axios a journalist. They leak Tucker’s name.
But before that, it must have been unmasked. You got to think it’s unmasked. And where’s the investigation?
And now you’re gonna see discovered by the Left a commitment to protecting journalism and what they’re doing in the leak. You can’t go back. You can’t go past the leak. We can’t do it.
And you know what? Somewhere Ed Snowden, Julian Assange are saying, I thought we were doing something too that was protected.
But my point here is. And here’s what you need to know now is if Susan Rice can unmask General Flynn and dozens of other Trump aides. And now we have Tucker being unmasked.
You understand that they don’t think they’re going to be held accountable and they’re targeting their political enemies. You understand that Lois Learner was a warm up at the IRS when she targeted Tea Party groups and destroyed some of them. Put them through hell. I know some of them personally.
This unmasking scandal is unmasking a rottenness. It’s unmasking a rottenness in America. And the people that are back in power, Susan Rice, Joe Biden, are getting away with it again, again.
And they’re not going to stop. They don’t think anything can stop them. They’re righteous in their minds. They’re righteous, and they’re going to keep going. And frankly, they won’t stop. They won’t stop. They won’t stop. They’ll be coming for you and me.
Alright, let’s take a break. We’ll be right back. Ed Martin on the Pro America Report – back in a moment.
