Welcome, welcome, welcome. Ed Martin here on the Pro America Report. Great to be together, and we’re easing into the weekend.
I hope you have a great weekend, but before you do, we got some work to do. We’ll talk in a few moments with Ted Malloch. He will march us through a history of, I mentioned this on the show yesterday. He’ll march us through a history of the Democrat Party. They’re the racist party. Consistently racist, the Democrat Party, since its founding. And Ted Malloch’s written a piece. It’s excellent, I’ll walk us through.
And we’ll talk with Jeffrey Stephens. Jeffrey Stephens is an author whose book is called Fool’s Errand, and I read it. I had him on the show a month or so ago, and it was a good book. I was in the middle of it. I finished it, and I’m doing it as a kind of Father’s Day thing. The book is about a son who gets a letter from his father after the father has died. The father leaves it like in his safe deposit box, and hegets this letter. It sends him on a wild goose chase. But it’s really a wonderful treatment of father-son relationships and kind of success and failure. It’s very well done. So we’ll talk with Jeff Stephens after today, and I’ll put that up.
All of its up. It’s all on social media @eagleedmartin, Ed Martin Live on Facebook, Gab and Parler both @edmartin. And you can always visit Pro America Report, ProAmericaReport.com and see all the interviews there and get signed up for the daily email. And that’s what you will need to know. What you need to know every day. Money through Friday.
Okay. Also, by the way, tune in any of the places I just mentioned. You can watch my live stream each morning. 9:45 East Coast Time, about a 15 minute introduction. Clarify what you need to know for the day.
Let me let me say this. The G7 meetings are taking place in Britain, and, of course, just getting a lot of puff coverage of the President. There always is for the Democrats. Unless you’re Trump, you get puff coverage. And it’s very silly. And on my live stream, I was talking about how Jill Biden wore a gaudy shirt that said Love on the back. It is silly.
But Here’s what I want to tell you. I’ve been thinking about it all day and I want to tell you, the G7, did you know it started in 1975? 1975 was right about when the Republicans, because of Nixon and then Ford did the same. And because of Kissinger, the influence of Henry Kissinger, they went down the path of these globalists. They went in for all this globalist stuff.
And the Democrats came along. The Democrats had been conditioned to a lot of it because they wanted to grow government and because FDR and Mrs. FDR wanted to have the United Nations and all this internationalist stuff. And that’s really when the Republicans went off the rails.
Now Reagan brought it back. Reagan brought it back. But a lot of the policies that Reagan brought us back to in terms of facing off against the Soviets had to do with our military and our toughness.
But he didn’t win all the debates in terms of policy, especially on things like trade, international trade. From 1975 on the G6 at the time and then G7, these meetings were all about sort of working together for a globalist vision.
And if it was just about saying maximizing America’s interests in relation to other people, get in a room and don’t have miscommunications over dumb stuff, I would say, okay, but it didn’t. It became this globalist movement. And after Reagan, you got George H.W. Bush. Then you got all of Clinton, then you got W. Bush.
We used the crises in the Middle East to build more entanglements, all that stuff.
The G7 right now is insofar as it’s good for world leaders to get in a room, okay. Other than that, the G7 part is ridiculous. There’s no Russia there. There’s a bunch of other nations that are missing. I mean, the biggest enemy of the world right now is Communist China. And if you’re not clear on that, and I think they are talking about that a lot.
But here’s what I want to tell you. It’s probably time to get rid of the G7. Don’t think of it as a unit. It’s also time to have conversations about why is NATO? Why are we paying so much for NATO when we’re supposed to be, what, defending Europe from Russia? Germany has a massive contract with Russia for natural gas, the Nordstrom 2 pipeline.
So why are we bothering? We’re not going to have a war with Russia in the North Atlantic. It’s a dumb… It’s outdated. And again, we have to be willing to talk about things that are outdated.
And Trump did this.
He said, America First, you got to pay your share. You know, he didn’t ultimately pull out of NATO, but he said, “Why are we here. WTO — the World Trade Organization, WHO — the World Health Organization, all these “W blank O” are a disaster for us.
But here’s the pivot I want to make because I was doing an interview with George Galloway, the Member of Parliament from from Scotland. He was in the British Parliament for a while, a number of years. Big leader and a real Liberal and a real character, too, and very smart. And we’re talking on… and I’m not trying to explode his head. And here’s what I would say.
The American people need to demand that our leaders Reaffirm, Rejuvenate, Reset,
Reassess, no that’s not the word, not even reset, either. Reaffirm, Rejuvenate, the Monroe Doctrine.
The Monroe Doctrine, you say, Oh, my gosh. What’s the Monroe Doctrine?
Well, of course, the Monroe Doctrine was at a time back in the 1820s when Monroe… the country was only going for a little bit less than a little bit 25, 30 years. And Monroe is trying to feel his way.
We’ve got all kinds of rivalries in the world. And it turns out that there was Imperial powers that be – Russia and Europe – that were thinking that they might come to America, especially actually on the West Coast, if you can believe it. Alaska down in San Francisco. And so Monroe promulgated this doctrine.
But Here’s what he did. And here’s the important part, because what I always think
about the Monroe Doctrine and it was so useful to frame this way… By the way… I’m stealing most of my thoughts here from Phyllis Schlafly, who both taught me but also wrote about this, and I’ll put it up on social media. But here’s what the Monroe Doctrine said.
The quote, one of the quotes that matters most, quote, the political system of the allied powers. So in this case, the allied powers, meaning European folks, as well as Russia, the allied powers describing, is essentially different from that of America. So the political system is essentially different from that of America.
We should consider any attempt on their part to extend their system to any portion of this hemisphere as dangerous to our peace and safety.
America should say very clearly, under the Monroe Doctrine, the political system of the Chinese regime is essentially different from that of America. Essentially different.
The guys like Monroe actually used words carefully, essentially different. What we know at this point in our history is that the Communist regime in China, their system is incompatible with America.
And we should fight like cats and dogs to keep them out of our hemisphere, or at least, to say it better out of our backdoor.
The influence of the Belt and Road Initiative, which is a spending spree by China, where they command their economy to raise money for them.
They have slave labor from the Uyghurs.
They have persecution of the Falun Gong and Christians.
They have fentanyl they send to us, they make money on. They use their economy, command control, to fund investments all over the world. They go to smaller countries and they say, Hey, we’ll help you build roads and bridges and all that. And we shouldn’t recognize they’re not doing that because they’re benign.
Now you can say, Well, neither is America.
Yeah, but we’re not an Empire. We don’t build an Empire. We never built an Empire. Go back. And if you want to criticize Britain for that, Great Britain, fine, not us. And you can say, Well, our influence and our technology, we can have a debate.
But in terms of the incompatibility of the system, there is no political system in the world that is incompatible with ours like China’s political system, the Communist regime. And so forget the G7 and all the namby-pamby around.
And, you know, Boris Johnson and a Biden are embarrassing themselves. They act…, well all saying, Well, my wife is so much better than me, and it’s great. I mean, they’re just pathetic, and they’re acting like, you know what they’re acting like? They’re acting like, yesteryear. Boris Johnson isn’t that old, but Biden’s acting like it’s the 1970s and 80s. Because that’s all he knows.
And it’s a swamp motif. It’s the swamp stink, and it’s a failure. It’s failing America, whatever its intention, starting in ’75. By the way, when did Joe Biden get into the Senate? 1975 maybe? Might have been right around the time that we go G6 to G7 and that period of history.
We’ll look back on it and they’ll say, Okay, the Americans succeeded in the Cold War against the Soviet Communist system.
But you know what?
They’re going to look at and say they took their own system, the American system, and they just about, well, they put it in peril. Let’s say it that way. Both internally through stupidity, bad education, other things gutting the rule of law, corruption, and also by allowing and not understanding that the Communist regime is different, fundamentally different than any other political system in the world now and therefore reaffirm the Monroe Doctrine. That’s my… I’m not debating it I’m not wondering out loud. I’m saying 100% that is where we should be.
We should get ourselves focused on it, because what’s at stake is much bigger than even trade or jobs or the economy. It’s this political system that holds people living together.
All right, I’ve got to take a break. Thank you for that. So I’ve been excited to talk about it all day, because I’ve been thinking all day. We will be back.
We’ll be back with Ted Malloch. He’ll talk about the Democrat Party and Jeff Stephens about his book. We’ll take a break.
Be right back. Ed Martin, Pro America Report. Back in a moment.
