#TFH on #VLR 4/6: Demetrius Minor, Open Phones, Death Penalty, & More!

UPDATE! Replay added!! I’m back with a “regular” Their Finest Hour on Vigilant Liberty Radio tonight at 10pm Eastern/7pm Pacific. As always, it’s going to be a great show, so please tune in and join us in the chatroom too!

IMG_6696Their Finest Hour is brought to you in part by Comfyballs – the innovative new performance underwear for men! Comfyballs is also the liberty choice because they’re locked in a fight with the United States Patent & Trademark Office over their name, which is supposedly “immoral or scandalous”. I’ve tried them, and they’re as good as advertised! Sign their petition at Fight For Your Balls!

First up is blogger, broadcaster, and author Demetrius Minor (@dminor85), who will soon be releasing his new book Preservation and Purpose: The Making Of A Young Millennial. The book is also sub-headed, “A Manifesto For Faith, Family, and Politics”.  We’ll be discussing the book, plus the more general topic area of how conservatives and libertarians can increase their relevancy among millennials and younger people. We’ll have the phones open for this part of the show too, so if you have any questions for Demetrius, we’ll take them!

After that discussion, there were some stories in the last week dealing with capital punishment at home and abroad that caught my eye, so we’ll have some talk around the death penalty. Capital punishment, I’ll admit, is one of those issues I’ve gone around and around on. Every time I convince myself that I’m anti-death penalty, I hear a story of a crime that makes me want to sign up to be the executioner.

Then, it’s the first day of baseball season, the Iran negotiations produced a “non-deal deal”, Hillary Clinton may actually run for President, and more!

You can catch the show on the players found here, over on VLR’s Spreaker page, or through a Spreaker mobile device app! Best though is to join us in the chatroom and interact with the program!

10E/9C/8M/7P, talk to you then!

Replay segments; slight production error on my part resulted in a two-part show. As always, you can download MP3s by clicking the show title in the player, then following the “download” link.

#TFH on #VLR, LIVE 3/23: Cruz is in, Allan is back!

Their Finest Hour returns LIVE tonight (March 23) to Vigilant Liberty Radio at 10pm Eastern, 7pm Pacific! I’m looking forward to getting back on-air tonight after last week’s absence for family reasons…and hoping that a last minute change there won’t preempt me again!

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) announced his 2016 Presidential campaign today, so that will be topic number one. I’m a fan of Cruz, but not a fan of him running for President. Did his speech change my mind at all?

The United States Supreme Court is hearing a case today whether or not a private group can exercise its First Amendment rights by having Texas place a Confederate battle flag on their license plates. Yeah, I’ve got an opinion.

So much more to talk about too! I’m still building my topic list, but you can have the chance to set the discussion as well! Yes! Phones will be open pretty much from the start, so be sure to tune in for the call-in instructions!

Of course, the VLR chatroom with show player will be open and we hope you join us there! Other listening options are the player here at the right, direct at VLR’s page on Spreaker, or through one of Spreaker’s mobile apps.

Going to be a great show! 10E/9C/8M/7P!

And here’s the replay! Click the show title in the player to go to where you get an MP3 for offline listening if you want/need!

#TFH on #VLR Live, March 9th! – I’m back, open phones, & more!

After last week’s last minute absence, I’m really looking forward to returning Their Finest Hour to Vigilant Liberty Radio tonight at 10pm Eastern, 7pm Pacific! I think I’ll be flying solo for most of the show, but may have a guest or two on to talk about the Hillary Clinton emails scandal and other IT-related topics. But, if not, the phones will be open and we’ll do a swing around a whole host of topics that will cross news, politics, and culture!

Please come join us in the chat room and listen for the call-in instructions! If you don’t want to chat, you can listen using the player at right or direct on Spreaker too.

Here’s the show replay:

#TFH on #VLR 3/2: Rants, #CPAC2015, and @GaltsGirl!

REPLAY ADDED! Their Finest Hour returns live to Vigilant Liberty Radio tonight at 10pm Eastern/7pm Pacific! I just got back yesterday from attending – well, sort of – the American Conservative Union’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) last Thursday-Saturday, so there’s that to talk about. There’s a bunch of international news I’d like to comment on, plus in the first hour there will be some open phones.

Shortly into hour two, I’ll be joined by my friend Michelle Ray (@GaltsGirl). She was in and around CPAC too, plus she’s also the host of the Gulchcast here on VLR and In Deep over at our FTR Radio friends. Michelle’s also an editor over at our good IJReview friends too! I’m sure we’ll have plenty to talk about.

Come join us in the chatroom with show player or just listen using the player at right. You can also listen direct on Spreaker, using a Spreaker mobile app, and I think it will be live on TuneIn too!


Unfortunately, I was incapacitated with back pain on Monday night, but much thanks to Taylor Millard of the VLR Saturday Night Cigar Lounge and The Right War for filling in. Here’s the replay, plus you can click the show title in the player to get a copy for offline listening.

#TFH on #VLR – Doing it #RoEL style!

UPDATE: REPLAY ADDED! I’ve got Their Finest Hour live on Vigilant Liberty Radio tonight at 10pm Eastern, 7pm Pacific for an extra special night! Since the wonderful Krystle Schoonveld (@TarheelKrystle) and myself are skipping The Roundtable of Extreme Liberty tomorrow night due to preparations for leaving for CPAC (plus it’s my daughter’s middle school musical), we’re going to do TFH a bit “Roundtable” style.

Besides Krystle, we’ll keep Amanda McCallister (@RightInPlanning) around after her 9pm ET program The Edge of Anarchy (tune in to her too!) and I’ll also be bringing Randy Clemens (@bostonrandy) into the mix, and maybe one or two other, plus we’ll probably open up the phones!

Private Lloyd G. McCarter, USA (February 16-19, 1945)

Lloyd G. McCarter was born in St. Maries, Idaho on May 11, 1917. He was a member of the Idaho National Guard who was federalized for service in the United States Army during World War II. He also volunteered for airborne training, and was a member of the 503rd Parachute Infantry Regiment. The 503rd’s combat jump onto the Philippine island of Corregidor on February 16, 1945 gave the regiment its nickname – “The Rock”, also the nickname of the island itself.
