First up tonight will be HotAir editor Ed Morrissey (@EdMorrissey) with talk on current political happenings such as the GOP leadership crisis in the House of Representatives, the ongoing “drip, drip” of the Hillary Clinton email scandal, the Benghazi investigation backlash allegations of being partisan driven, we’re on the eve of the first Democratic presidential debate, and the GOP candidates still can’t seem to get out of Trump’s shadow.
In hour two, I’ll be welcoming VLR’s own Amy Curtis (@moderncomments) of Modern Comments Radio (Wednesday Nights, 10E/7P). Amy and I attended Liberty Fest NYC this past weekend. We saw some very good speakers and some…well…let’s just say eclectic ones.
During hour two, I’ll definitely open up the phones, so if you have your own point you’d like to sound off on, that’ll be your chance! Be sure to be listening for the call in instructions!
Tonight, we’ll go through a potpourri of current events: mass shootings and gun-grabbers, the GOP leadership drama in the House of Representatives, the accidental (?) bombing of a Doctors Without Borders’ hospital in Afghanistan, plus whatever else comes to mind. Winging the agenda is sometimes for the best!
We’ll also open up the phones at some point too, so be sure to listen or watch Twitter for call-in instructions.
In hour 1 of the program, I’ll be talking about today’s opening of the UN General Assembly and the speechifying by President Obama and others. I’m also going to be discussing my breaking of my own moratorium on watching mainstream “news magazine” shows — both Russian President Vladimir Putin and GOP Presidential Candidate Donald Trump appeared on 60 Minutes last night.
In hour 2, I’ll be welcoming Christine Rousselle (@crousselle), Managing Web Editor for Townhall.com, back to the show. Christine covered Pope Francis’ visit to the United States, plus we’ll get her takes on other issues of the day, like John Boehner’s resignation. Perhaps we’ll take more calls too!
The fun all starts at 10E/9C/8M/7P – don’t miss the show!
Tonight in hour one, I’ll be welcoming Katrina Jørgensen (@Veribatim) back to the program! Katrina works with the Young Republicans National Federation (@YNRF) and also writes about foreign news for IJ Review. It’s the latest in foreign news that we’ll be discussing tonight!
In hour two, I’ll be opening up the phones, as well as going rant-mode on a couple of topics. It should be a blast!
Their Finest Hour will hit Vigilant Liberty Radio in just five short hours at 10pm Eastern/7pm Pacific! I’ve got George Templeton (@rodentpolitics, @temptherat) from Free Radical Network and Foreign Matters joining me! As George has a keen interest for foreign news that will make up a large part of our discussion (Syrian refugee crisis, UK Labour Party leadership change, Australian PM change, among others), and we’ll also dip into the latest in domestic politics (Rick Perry quits his presidential campaign, etc.) and some sports as Week 1 of the 2015 NFL Season is almost in the books!
UPDATE: REPLAY ADDED!!Their Finest Hour returns to Vigilant Liberty Radio tonight at 10pm Eastern/7pm Pacific! Please come join us for the program in VLR’s registration-free chat (or you can use your Ustream account) and interact with the show!

In any case, the first topic for this evening’s discussion will be immigration. I’ve had an immigration rant ready for a while now; expect lots of premise-challenging and cutting through the rhetorical BS of both conservatives and progressives.
There’s plenty of other news and culture items to discuss, and we will. No official guests planned – yet! – but we’ll see! Talk to you all at 10E/9C/8M/7P!
REPLAY: Amanda McCallister (@RightInPlanning) of VLR’s Edge of Anarchy joined in for the program, and we also got a call from listener Michael Wade (@mjwadeesq). Enjoy!

Wow! It seems like it’s been a lot longer than three weeks since I was LIVE with Their Finest Hour on Vigilant Liberty Radio! After three weeks of stepping away, I’m ready to get back at it, and this for all intents and purposes is the beginning of year three of the program!
