Thank you for tuning in and don’t forget, go to proamericareport.com, and you know because of this program and the stature and everything. I got invited onto Breitbart radio show this morning.
A friend of mine, Alex Marlow the editor there. I sometimes write columns there. You know, Breitbart radio does use the townhall news and all.
I was writing for them, and they asked me to come. I filled in on that show, and I want to tell you about it only because of this great program in the Salem Radio Network and you — it was cool.
So by the way, don’t forget to go to proamericareport.com promericareport.com and get yourself all of our stuff and sign up for the daily WYNK. So you get what you need to know there. 7
So, what I wanted to relay to you was that we had this interview that I undertook with Jay Ashcroft.
So Jay Ashcroft is the Secretary of State of Missouri. He’s the 40th secretary of state — great guy. He is actually a friend of mine for a long time and a super guy, a eally nice man, smart and all. Of course, his father is John Ashcroft and his mother is Janet Ashcroft.
Janet Ashcroft was a great friend of Phyllis Schlafly’s. And Janet Ashcroft often told the story that she got the Phyllis Schlafly Report in the mail and made sure that her husband who was in succession the Missouri Attorney General, then the Missouri governor, then a US senator from Missouri, then Attorney-General of the United States — she made sure that he read that every time. So it was a great family.
And Jay Ashcroft is married with four children. And he is a fascinating man because he started out as an engineer. He got a degree in engineering from Rolla, the University of Missouri. In Missouri, our technical school there is Rolla.
It’s the University of Missouri at Rolla is what it used to be called. Now, it’s called Missouri University of Science and Technology, maybe something like that, but it’s a very good school. It was actually once called. I think the School of Mines. Rolla School of Mines back out, you know, 50 70 years ago. A very, very fine engineer school.
Jay Ashcroft gets a degree in engineering, which means he’s sane.
You know, if you study engineering as opposed to going to college and studying some subject and get off track.
He’s very methodical. He’s very smart, and he went to be a teacher for a long time. So, good guy and all that. Well, then he went on to law school in his 30s or something. Now, he’s Secretary of State of Missouri.
When I had him on the show, interviewing him, and I’ll get him on our show again here. I said to him, “Secretary Ashcroft, what keeps you up at night when it comes to November election?”
And it won’t surprise you to hear he said, “Well, running a good election, in this environment is a real challenge.”
Meaning, people are worried about illness, people are cheating — he didn’t say cheating –I’m saying cheating at the polls; and then, of course, he segued to absentee balloting and mail-in ballots, and the threat of those.
So anyway, we went on for a long time. We talked about a lot of things, and he was just very methodical. In fact, in the midst of it, I thought, “That’s an engineer.”
He thinks of elections as Logistics. A logistical challenge because he said, “You’ve got to get a person to get their ballot, and get their ballot cast, and then get a count.
He said, “That’s how I look at this situation.
So anyway, as we went through this, what I want to tell you, what you need to know is — there’s all sorts of noise.
There’s people being cancelled. This guy, Nick Cannon, who is some sort of actor. He said some anti-Semitic things. He got fired. Then, he got rehired by somebody else. I don’t know.
We’ve got the NBA about to restart and the players are deciding what social justice phrase to put on their uniform — you know, on and on. Right, the coronavirus hysteria has hit peak CNN and of course, there’s some real numbers.
The unemployment numbers are pretty tough. Some increase in unemployment numbers is tough.
This is a wild time, but you, and we’ve talked about this, you and I have to cut through this to what you need to know.
And when you listen to Jay Ashcroft, again — I’ll put it up on promericareport.com it and on social media.
What he makes clear is — we have to worry about the reality.
In my opinion, the left is losing. So they’re losing, and then he said, “You have to be aware that a lot of times leftists will try to damage the process to make it so people feel bad about our elections in this case.”
So he was talking about that. I’m putting more of my spin on it, but he was basically saying we got to worry about protecting our elections.
And my point to you, I’ll just tell you this is — the left is losing.
They’re losing it — meaning they’re losing their mind.
Yesterday, the Los Angeles Times published an op-ed one of their contributors that we should get rid of The Star-Spangled Banner in favor of Lean On Me the Bill Withers song
Now, I’m not against the Lean On Me. I kind of remember from my childhood it’s kind of a cool song, but replacing The Star-Spangled Banner doesn’t make sense.
My point in telling you that is when normal people look at that, and they think, “What…?”
When normal people look up, and they see Portland is now having part of their city be occupied by people that want to have lawlessness, and the mayor, and the prosecutors, and the cops can’t stop it.
They are looking up and they’re saying, “Yeah, we can’t have this.”
When they look up, and they see Joe Biden’s released now his plans, which are raise our taxes — all across the board and amnesty for illegal aliens 2 to 20 million people.
As more of this is known, it’s a death rattle.
It’s the death rattle of the Democrat Party and the left. They know they’re losing.
So now, when you’re losing, you start, as I told you the other day, you start to look for other things; and, one of the things the leftists will do is look to damage and destabilize.
They did it with the Russia hoax.
I mean they really spent two-and-a-half to three years of the presidency tying up lots of people — damaging lots of people.
See Mike Flynn.
So what Jay Ashcroft says and what you need to know is — we’ve got to get focused on what’s at stake and not just, “Oh, wow… here comes, somebody’s cancelled and this and that…oh there’s a change in the campaign manager…”
Let me tell you something about campaigns.
Every campaign I’ve ever known and been on, I’ve worked on — I’ve run twice, myself. I’ve been involved in 10.
Change in personnel and job duties is totally common.
In fact, it would be surprising if the Trump Administration didn’t do that.
I mean, excuse me, the Trump campaign didn’t do that. Brad Pasquale, the guy who was in charge and is still doing the digital — he’s a kind of a digital guy.
The new guy is named Bill Stepien. He’s a guy that’s run lots of campaigns. That’s kind of a natural shift.
It’s not odd, and the media is like, “Oh my gosh. It’s the end of the world…”
No, you’re seeing the ongoing effort of the media to convince the American people that Trump is not winning because they cannot believe it.
Just like with Hillary, they’re doing this over and over again. In fact, there was polling — I think it was in Pennsylvania — 57% of the people polled told the pollster that they believe there was a silent Trump supporters who wouldn’t answer the posters.
What does it tell you if 57% tell you that? Say that to the pollster?
In other words, some percentage of them are part of that.
Again, my point is as they’re stumbling to this election, as Joe Biden has to get out of his basement and speak, and it gets more and more confused, and more and more muddled, and they start to lose, and they know they’re losing, one of the things they are going to do is try and steal it, and try to destabilize the election.
So later on the show, I told you, we’ll talk about what you need to do — you know — the WYNDo
So what you need to know is we have a problem with the election, and it’s far enough away now, a hundred plus days — so about a hundred and ten days, whatever it is, 16 weeks from two days ago.
Now, we have to plan on how to help with this. On how to become a part of the solution because mail-in ballots — I asked Jay Ashcroft, Missouri’s Secretary of State —
I said, “Secretary Ashcroft, “Can we ask our local election officials to post online, to stream online, the counting of absentee ballots, the counting of mail-in ballots, so that we have eyes — many eyes — on the people who might be committing fraud? And we have eyes on many of the things that might be looking the other way if there’s problems?”
And he said, “Yes.” It can’t be done by the federal government he thought. It has to be done by local jurisdictions.
But we could start demanding it.
If you’re going to stream, I don’t know, you know, the city council meeting, which is fine. They’re doing that. They’re doing most of these meetings by Zoom.
Anyway, we have Congress on C-Span. The Supreme Court is doing all their oral arguments on audio at least on C-Span.
We can stream — we should stream all of these election areas — the big ones, the counting ones.
So anyways at the end, Jay Ashcroft said — I said, “What do you need?”
He said, “I need more people.” He said, “I need more people who are conservative, who believe in the rule of law, who will step up and will actually play a role in November at the polling places, election authority, in the election authorities offices, wherever that may be.”
That’s what he asked for.
I have to tell you, I’ve already done and earlier today — I went online — I’ve already been a volunteer outside the polling places canvassing for my party. I’m now going to go and get registered to be a poll worker.
And get inside and spend one day, if I can I’ll spend the days beforehand, trying to be involved in the absentee ballot counting and the mail-in ballot.
We have to do that. You’re gonna hear me talk about it more and more.
You know, the noise will be about all sorts of other stuff. They’ll be about Trump’s tweets, they’ll be about Trump’s staff, they’ll be about Trump’s this…Trump’s that…
Forget about it.
We focus — we know what’s at stake, we know what you need to know, and we know what we need to do. So that’s what we have to do.
Alright, we got a bunch of great interviews today. We’ll get to him in just a moment. Don’t forget proamericareport.com.
It’s Ed Martin. We’ll be right back.
