"Fortune all this time and energy to learn how to think, but they are forcing you to think the way they want you to think. I realized. Wow, This is insane. I thought America was different, but I saw so many similarities to what I saw in North Korea. But I started worrying. Those similarities include anti Western sentiment, collective guilt and suffocating political correctness. Yami saw red flags immediately upon arriving at the school. During orientation. She was scolded by a university staffer for admitting she enjoyed classic literature such as Jane Austen. I said, I love those books. I thought it was a good thing, recalled Park. Then, she said, Did you know those writers had a colonial mindset? They were racist and bigots and I subconsciously brain watching you. I love that telling somebody from North Korea. What brainwashing is it continues? It only got worse from there, as he only realized that every one of her classes at the Ivy League school was infected with what she saw as anti American propaganda reminiscent to the sort she had grown up with. American bastard was one word for North Koreans Park was taught growing up. The math problems would say there are four American bastards. You killed two of them. How many American bastards I left to kill. It's like after North Korea. She was also shocked and confused. By issues surrounding gender and language with every class asking students to announce their preferred pronouns. English is my third language. I learned it as an adult. I sometimes still say he or she by mistake, and now they are going to ask me to call them they. How the heck do I incorporate that into my sentences? It was chaos said, Yeah, me. It felt like the regression in civilization. Even North Korea is not that's nuts. North Korea was pretty crazy, but not this crazy. After getting into a number of arguments for professors and students. Eventually, Yami learned how to just shut up in order to maintain a good GPA and graduate. In North Korea. Yon me did not know of concepts like love or liberty. Because I have seen oppression. I know what it looks like. Said Yeah, and me who by the age of 13 had witnessed people dropped dead of starvation right before her eyes. These kids keep saying how they're oppressed, how much injustice they've experienced. They don't know how hard it is to be free. I literally crossed in the middle of the Gobi Desert to be free. But what I did was nothing. So many people fought harder than me and didn't make it. Park and her mother first fled the oppressive North Korean regime in 2007. When Yandy was 13 years old. After crossing into China over the frozen Yalu River, they fell into the hands of human traffickers who sold them into slavery. Yeah, for less than $300 that her mother for roughly 100. With the help of Christian missionaries. They pair managed to flee to Mongolia, walking across the Gobi Desert to eventually find refuge in South Korea. In 2000 and five she published her memoir in Order to Live, where she described what it took to survive and one of the world's most brutal Dictatorships, and then the heroin journey to freedom. The people here are just dying to give their rights and power to the government. That's what scares me. The most. She accused American higher education institutions of stripping people's ability to think critically in North Korea. I literally believe that my dear leader, that's Kim Jong un was starving, she recalled. He's the fattest guy. How could anybody believed that? And then somebody showed me a photo and said, Look at him. He's the fattest guy. Other people are all thin. And I was like, Oh, my God. Why did I not notice that he was fat? Because I never learned how to think critically. In other words, the point is As all the others in North Korea. We're starving. She assumed that Kim Jong UN fatso was starving to, she said. She never was able to put literally two and two together. He's not starving. He's fat. He's getting fat when the rest of us are starving. She continues. Witnessing the depth of Americans Ignorance up close has made yon me question everything about humanity. Quote North Koreans. We don't have the Internet. We don't have access to any of these great things. We don't know anything. But here. Well, having everything people choose to be brainwashed. And then They deny it. Having come to America with high hopes and expectations, Jandi expressed their disappointment. You guys have lost common sense to a degree that I, as a North Korean cannot even comprehend. Where are we going From here? She wondered. There's no rule of law, no morality. Nothing is good or bad anymore. It's complete chaos. I guess that's what they want to destroy every single thing and rebuild into a communist paradise. So a young woman who actually grew up under the ultimate repression. No rights, no freedom. Yearning for the opportunity to have freedom. Comes to the United States and sees a country It's trying to turn itself into North Korea. Remarkable story. And as I said a little bit earlier in the discussion, there was a time. That it was the lefties that were against repression. It was the lefties that were in favour of freedom that it was the lefties that believed in giving everyone our rights that it was the lefties that believed An individual liberty. They now want us all to think the same just as North Korea does. They want us all to do as we're told, just as North Korea does, And they want us all to believe lies just as North Korea did. Whether quote whether co bots covid started in the Wuhan lab or not, we're not allowing you to think that because Trump says that Don't think things through. Covid is not being transmitted in the schools. We don't want you to think that way because we want to be able to give an excuse to the teachers. They don't want to go to work. Defector from North Korea. Goes all this way gets to China gets into South Korea finally gets over to the United States. United States and Marion. Wow..

"Blood. I've got some German blood that makes me both thrifty and efficient. But if you want Irish if you want some Irish eyes, smiling. You got to go to Michael Walsh, My pal, The author of last stands. Why Men fight when all is lost a great new book, Michael. Welcome to the Hugh Hewitt radio program. Thank you, Colonel. It's a pleasure to be reporting for duty at this early hour of the day. But Michael, as you know, I was kind of in the army for around 27 years on, and I had the privilege because we're pals of reading last stands or at least part of it in prepublication form. And this is a book about fights where everything looks like they're lost, and one of them is about your father, United States. Marini's 94 years old. It's the last chapter, I think, frankly, and I'm not exaggerating, folks. It's one of the best things I've ever read. Can you Can you tell us a little about that? Yeah. Be happy to 70 years ago. Right about now. My dad who was at that time 24 years old was up with the Yalu River with the second Battalion, Fifth Marines, the most decorated unit in Marine Corps history, and they were Suddenly surrounded and driven into your extinction by vastly superior Chinese force that had Counterattacked on the side of the North Koreans, and so in a battle that's become legendary Marine Corps history, The Marines had survived the odds slot and then regroup. Pull themselves and march back to the Allied lines. This was a U. N forces, the Chosin Reservoir that shows some reservoir exactly right. And a name that will live in Marine Corps history. And I thought, you know, I'm writing a book about everybody from the Greek ship there. Ma police of the Swiss guard. In Rome and 50 27 to Stalingrad at the battle of Pavel's house. I've got a member of my family was gonna last and my very own father, So I gave him that last chapter. And I'm I'm grateful to you, Kurt for for mentioning it, because it's a It's a very emotional moment for for me to writing this book. Well, Michael Walsh. It's a It's a fantastic book. I'm not just saying that because we're pals, though we are pals. Yeah. Look, I'm a military guy in my graduate, the United States War College, I'll be it. It's a party War college, But this is a great book. It's not great. It's a great book of your military history buff. It's a great book. If you're a history buff, I say everybody needs to go out and get it last stands. Why, Why Men fight when all is lost? I want to move on now because something came up in the news, something that's kind of right down your alley because you may have experienced something similar because you were a real journalist back in the Cold War running around Berlin and Moscow. Through. There's a revolution, a revelation that the flatulent representative Eric Swalwell was the victim of a honeypot scam by Chinese intelligence. You dealt with the KGB. They did this sort of thing. Tell us about how that stuff works. Yeah, well, it Z was standard Soviet trick to go after members of the American diplomatic Corps, the intelligence community straight journalists, whoever was might be useful to them. On, uh Sidle up some particularly attractive Russian girls, and you know how pretty Russian girls are and get at American secrets that way. Clearly, the Chinese have Employed the same tactics I suspect with much less results, but no, not with Swalwell. That guy, you know, I mean, look, I don't think she is that hot. Let's just be honest, but for small, well You know that's batting above par golf in above par for him or below par, Whatever, Lucky day, but somehow fitting that someone is shall we say as pungent and revel in it as Eric Swalwell? A clown of the first magnitude who had the somehow ludicrous notion that he should run for president of the United States. But hey, worked the Joe Biden, apparently so you never know if the Democrats but it couldn't happen to a nicer guy gets. That's what I'm trying to stay. How dumb do you have to be to fall for one of these things? I mean, aren't they? Isn't it just Did he think, huh? This moderately attractive woman thinks I'm smart and charming and handsome. Yeah, I think, you know. Listen, don't all men think that? I mean it was one of the great? Yeah, but some of us here, right? Yeah. Remember great force and balances the imbalance between men and women. Of course, that's part of the team was last stand. Yes, it is a way to bring it back to the book, which I was, You know the Oh, that is the author's job. The difference between men and women is a big difference and trying to deny it is insane. It's also suicidal right now we're in Alaska and presence in the last and who knew that was gonna happen? But if you don't fight, and you know this two girls that you don't quite you cannot win. If you retreat if you flee from the dreaded covert if you run at the first sign of trouble Guess what you disappear from history, So we have to be very careful about how we approach these elemental questions and what I've tried to do in last dances to teach a lesson. From the very first encounter between the West and the East. That term awfully to the present time that it takes.

Federal officials say Russian hackers were able to steal data from at least two of the systems, but there's no sign any government operations were disrupted or election information compromised. Instead, they warned that hackers could be laying the ground work for future disruptions. While it would be extremely difficult to change actual votes, hackers could cause confusion by tampering with reporting systems and voter websites.

Korea leader She Jinping delivered on indirect warning to the US about undermining China's interests as PR's Emily Fang reports. Of the world to know that the people of China are now organized and are not to be trifled with cheating, Ping said in a speech in Beijing on Friday. He did not name the U. S in a speech, but it comes as tensions with the U. S and U. S ally Taiwan are on the rise.

Typically, Republicans are more likely to vote by mail, but not this year, says Mitchell. The fact that this year we're seeing early Democratic returns of those ballots is just anomaly. We've just never seen something like this before, and we'll wait to see as we get closer to Election Day. Those Republican voters probably coming in and voting late and in big numbers on DSI, what impact it has on those races. Voters have until November 3rd to cast their ballots for those who want to cast their ballots in person.

But county officials say 2000 of those cases are a reflection of a backlog of cases due to a technical issue over the past few days. Health officials say will continue to see a trickle of reporting from that backlog. They were also 18 new Corona virus really deaths yesterday. The county is still seeing widespread transmission of the virus, and officials are telling residents to continue practicing practices rather to mitigate the risk of Corona virus.
