"This is the Tom Hartman program are booked today for the Tom Harmon book club is a woman of no importance the untold story of the American spy who helped win World War two by Sonia Purnell this is from the prologue France was falling burned out cars one strap tie with treasured possessions were nosed crazily into ditches their beloved cargoes of dolls clocks and mirrors lay smashed around them in a long mile upon mile of unfriendly road their owners young and old sprawled across the hot dust and we're groaning or already silent it the hordes just kept streaming past the my never ending line of hunger and exhaustion too fearful to stop for days on end ten million women children and old men were on the move all fleeing Hitler's ranks pouring across the border from the east and the north entire cities and operated themselves in a futile bid this escape the **** blitzkrieg that threatened to engulf them the fever talk was of German soldiers stripped to the waist in jubilation at the ease of their conquest the air was thick with smoke and the stench of the dead the baby said no milk in the aged fell where they stood the hordes drop with drying overlaid an old farm card saying didn't snarled in their switch sweat drenched agony the friend she wave of may nineteen forty was witness to this the latest refugee X. the largest refugee exodus of all time day after day a solitary moving vehicle weaved its way through the crowd with the striking young woman at the wheel private Virginia hall often ran low on fuel and medicines but still pressed on enter French army ambulance toward the advancing enemy she persevered even when the German strikers came screaming down to drop a hundred and ten pound bombs on the convoys all around her torching the cars and creator in the roads even when fire planes swept over the treetops to machine gun the ditches were women and children were trying to take cover from the carnage even though French soldiers were deserting their units abandoning their weapons and running away some in their tanks even when her left hip was shot with pain from continually pressing down on the clutch with a prosthetic foot now at the age of thirty four her mission marked the turning point after years of cruel rejection for her own sake as much as for the casualties she was picking up from the battlefields and very into the hospital she could not fail again there were many reasons why she was willingly jeopardizing her life far from home in aid of a foreign country when millions of others were given a giving up perhaps foremost among them was that it had been so long since you've felt so thrillingly alive disgusted with the cowardice in the desert or she could not understand why they would not continue the fight but then she had little to lose the French still remembers sacrificing a third of their young men folk to the great war and nation of widows and orphans were in no mood for more bloodshed Virginia though intended to go on the road wherever the battle to occur she was prepared to take whatever risks faced down any dangers total war against the third Reich might perversely offer for one last hope of personal peace yet even this was as nothing compared with what was to come in a life that drew out of drew out out into a Homeric tale of adventure action and seemingly unfathomable courage Virginia hall service in the France of summer nineteen forty was merely an apprenticeship for near suicide mission against the tyranny of their **** of the **** their puppeteers in France she helped to pioneer daredevil Roland espionage sabotage and subversion behind enemy lines in an era when where women barely featured in the prim prism of heroism when they're parting combat was confined to the support of the plot palliative when they were just expected to look nice and actor Bedient let the men do the heavy lifting when disabled women or men we can find a standard home and leading off a narrow unsatisfying lives the fact that a young woman who had lost her leg in tragic circumstances broke through the tightest constrictions and overcame prejudice even hostility to help the allies when the second World War is astonishing that a female guerrilla leader of her stature it means so little known to this day is incredible yeah that is perhaps a Virginia would have wanted she operated in the shadows and that was where she was happiest even to our closest allies in France she seemed to have no home or family a regiment merely a burning desire to defeat the **** they knew neither her real name nor her nationality nor how she had arrived in their midst constantly changing in looks and demeanor servicing without notice across whole swaths of France only to just disappear again as suddenly she remained an enigma throughout the war and in some ways after it to even now Tracy stories involved three solid years of detective work taking me from the National Archives in London the resistance files and Lee all and the parachute drop zones in the holder to the judicial dossiers of Paris and even the white marble quarters of CIA headquarters at Langley my search led me through nine levels of security clearance in the heart of today's world of American espionage I have discussed the pressures of operating in enemy territory with a former member of Britain's special services and ex intelligence officers from both sides of the Atlantic I've tracked down files that were missing I discovered the others remain mysteriously lost or unaccounted for I spend days drawing diagrams matching dozens of code names the scores of permissions months hunting for remaining extracts of these strange disappeared papers years digging out forgotten documents and memoirs the book a woman of

"This is the tom hartman program kriens my friends patriots lovers of democracy truth and justice believers in peace freedom and the american way so somebody has stormy daniels what's the best snack food to eat while you're watching the show on sixty minutes last night and she tweeted mini corn dogs i tweeted out this morning apropos of that that now that we know that john that donald trump becomes compliant and does what he's told when he's been spanked stormy daniels needs to call john kelly right away but the larger picture the larger issue i think at the weekend was the the march and some of the best posters i just wanna share these two with you and then we're going to talk with no last seen about the stuff the i was this is a quote for matthew twenty five thirty five through thirty six new hypocritical version for i was hungry and you cut my food stamps i was a stranger and you deported me i was sick and you denied me healthcare i was a child afraid to go to school and you voted with the nra that's one the other one that i thought was fascinating is how about we treat this is a poster this i've i saw both of these over at democratic underground by the way democratic underground dot com how but they're from the march how about we treat every young man who wants to buy a gun like every woman who wants to get an abortion there's a mandatory forty eight hour waiting period parental parental permission is required a note from his doctor must be provided proving that he understands what he's about to do a video that he has to watch about the effects of gun violence and an ultrasound wand up his but just because let's go closed down all but one gun shop in every state making travel hundreds of miles take time off work and stay overnight in a strange town to get a gun make him walk through a gauntlet of people holding photos of loved ones who were shot to death people who call him a murderer and beg him not to buy a gun makes more sense to do this with young men and guns than with women in healthcare.
