The following is a transcript of the first segment of my radio program.
Welcome, welcome, Welcome. Ed Martin here on the Pro America Report. Very important to visit today. Thank you for tuning in. We’ve got some great guests in just a few moments. We talk with Bridget Van Means, our old friend, one of the pro life leaders for America. And we’ll also get an update from Lauren Bowman about HR 1, Senate Bill 1, the bill that’s so-called election integrity. It’s an attempted take over by the Democrats of all elections, federalizing elections.

Okay. Now, I’ve been telling you about the narrative machine for a long time now, the narrative machine, and I want to revisit this, but I want to highlight one of the ways we’re watching the growth of one aspect of the narrative machine.
Now, my teaching my description for you is that there is a narrative machine composed of three major parts. One is big tech, seems pretty obvious how big tech controls what we see and what we therefore know and a lot of what we do. And they do it with neuroscience. Big tech.
Big media, dominated in large part now by former and perhaps current intelligence operatives. Brennan, Clapper, all these other people, and they’re using brainwashing sophisticated brainwashing: imagery, choices of stories to brainwash the American people.
So you got big tech, big media, and then you have big government, and the three of these are working together to piece together to force upon the American people a narrative. And you will if you are outside of the narrative, you will be shunned and you may even be targeted for prosecution.
So here’s an example. If the narrative machine, big tech, big media, big government in the last year and a few months has said pandemic, and the narrative machine has said, you must trust the science. You must trust the science. Even though the scientists Fauci, the surgeon general, others lie to us. Or they at least had one opinion, one day and another opinion the other day. We have one opinion, one day, one opinion the other day.
But we’re told trust the science and the narrative machine – big government, big tech, big media – has forced you to subscribe to the notion that you must follow the science.
And then they tell you what the science is. That’s the trick you see. So they say big media and big tech brainwash you and yours. Excuse use neuroscience to tell you what you must do, which is follow the science and big government, Fauci and others, tell you what science is. It’s been pretty effective. It’s been pretty effective. And arguably, it’s been one of the greatest narratives foisted upon the American people, any people in the world, ever.
Okay. But now I just want to pause. And for a while, we’ve talked about big tech and big media. You’ve heard me talk about big media. The role of cable TV, the role of newsprint, the role of the website, the general media, I mostly mean cable TV. That’s the biggest dominant force, the brainwashing force and print. New York Times, Washington Post.
But let’s shift over. And you’ve heard me talk about big tech power of Twitter, social media, power of Facebook, social media. Let’s talk about big government. The expansion of big government into the role of enforcing the narrative is growing every day, every single day.
So the news comes out, and this guy named Ken Klippenstein, and I’ll put it up on social media. He’s not a conservative, he’s a Liberal. But he has received a leaked document from the Department of Homeland Security. I think it’s Department of Homeland Security. Yeah. The Department of Homeland Security. The Countering Extremism Working Group. CEWG: Countering Extremism Working Group.
Okay, you get that? This is a new group created by the military, by the Department. I think it’s Department of Home. No it’s the department… Department of Defense. I’m sorry. I’ll confirm that while we’re talking, but this is an effort. Yeah, sorry. It’s Department of Defense.
The Pentagon has started the Countering Extremism Working Group. Okay, now what is that? Well, there’s a subcommittee that has been identified and has been listed and leaked publicly, so you can now see it.
And the subcommittee lists the people who the Pentagon will check with to see who are the extremists. And if you look at that list, there’s about 25 or 30 names on there. One of them looks like a conservative one. Perhaps. The rest of them are hard left. Very Liberal. Very I would say pro Islamic, pro Jihadi. That’s a little bit strong. But you get my point. Very Liberal.
And it’s all about taking one side. It’s like taking the Southern Poverty Law Center and asking them to help vet the DoD. Well, that’s about what they’re doing in places all over the country. Now, you’ve seen the Southern Poverty Law Center is cited by government.
But in one sense, it used to be that they had to set up these front groups. The government had to point to Southern Poverty Law Center, CREW, which is the Center for Renewable Ethics in Washington or something like that. Total front groups, total front groups for the left and leftist Democrat positions.
And so, but now they’re moving it into government. They’re taking out the one step going outside of government to do this to enforce this stuff. And so you have a working group inside the Pentagon made up of leftists who are going to target the “extremists.”
They’re not going to target debates on extremism. They’re not educating. They’re saying, who are the extremists? And then what should we do with them?
And as we pointed out yesterday, you know, the New Republic front page, the cover stories about David Horowitz and they’re targeting David Horowitz. They finish saying, we disagree with David Horowitz. We disagree with him, and we call upon the government to investigate him.
Well, in this case, the Pentagon’s already got a unit set up filled with leftists who will now aim the power of big government at the people. That’s an extraordinary thing.
You’re seeing that in the Department of Justice. Susan Hennessy, who wrote for a blog called Lawfare, who was one of the biggest proponents of the Russia, Russia, Russia hoax, said terrible things about a lot of people. I mean, she has a right to, she was a commentator. She’s a lawyer. But now she’s the number one or two at the Department of Justice and National Security with the clearance at the highest level?
This is not leaving any doubt about where we’re heading. And into this steps, 124 generals and admirals who have written a letter saying, Hey, wait a second. Our country is going in the wrong direction. We see the government being used against We the People.
And if you see this essay, 124 retired generals and admirals and the headline in lots of places is they question Biden’s mental health. That’s not the biggest thing that is in there. What they say in there is that there is a danger in what they’re observing about how the people in this country are being forced to deny that there were problems in 2020 and being told, you must accept this truth and the power of government and others are enforcing that.
And one of the things is it’s true, these 124 generals and admirals do say that President Biden seems sort of feckless and seems not so strong. But that’s not a surprise. Even the Democrats say that.
But the question is, and it’s been disputed and it’s been called political. They’ve accused this group of being too political. They’ve said, you’re being too political by coming forward.
Now remember, David Petraeus ran for President. Stanley McChrystal takes positions on all kinds of hot buttons. But to the left. Wesley Clark, a retired general, ran for President. I mean, this is insane that the… Oh and Clapper is over at CNN. And Brennan is over at MSNBC. And they’re getting paid big money to talk about things that they were in charge of in their previous jobs in the government intelligence. But somehow these 124 men and women are not allowed to have an opinion and say it publicly.
That’s what we’re talking about. The voices that should be respected, that should be in the debate, are now attacked and ignored. And the voices that need to be utilized by the left are being brought into government. The big government portion of the narrative machine is ramping up.
Here’s another quick example. There’s tons and tons of video footage of the January 6th protest at the capital. The government won’t release it. Why? Most of us think because it could be exonerating for everything. It looked like a tour of the capital for 98% of the people that were there.
But they won’t release it. The narrative machine. Big tech, big media, Big government. It felt like big tech, power of Big tech. Power of the brainwashing big media — felt like those were the big ones. Big government.
It’s getting big in our lives. It’s getting big in our lives – worth worrying about.
All right, we got to take a break. We’ll be right back. It’s Ed Martin here on a Pro America Report, back in a moment.
