Her story is heartbreaking but this story is also a cautionary tale. This podcast should be shared in schools… not only do we need to get angry but we also need to be grateful! This country needs to wake up… we are giving away our freedoms and once given away it will be really difficult to get them back. They will take them away piece by piece until we have no freedoms left to take! We need to stand up for our freedoms regardless of who they are being taken from because eventually they will come after yours. Freedom of speech freedom to bare arms and freedom of religion should be protected at all costs.

Her story is tragic and amazing all at once. Fawk Kim Jong un. May we crush him and liberate their citizens. I do see why Joe brought her on though. He pushes his political views at every turn and gets her to chime in. So, Fox not covering her story, but why only act like the other media stations like Washington Post and NY Times should be the ones pushing her story. Oh, I relistened to it and I guess since it is a human interest story and that is probably why.

This was amazing to listen to. Her story is heartbreaking and also stimulating. The things others in the word go thru and we think in the US we have it rough. Too bad all governments are so corrupt and full of self interest to focus on the real issues at hand. Joe, thank you as usual amazing content!! Hopefully this will be heard by so many, and maybe even the Times will respond… cowards
