First up, I’ve unfortunately gotten a little bit behind on my 70th anniversary World War II Medal of Honor posts on the blog, so throughout the show tonight I’m going to be reading the citations and stories of the brave men whose action anniversaries I missed over the last week.
Then, yesterday (November 9th) was the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, so I’ll be recounting my recollection from that time as a child of the Cold War.
I had a epic time last week on VLR’s election night special, and I haven’t given any closing thoughts yet, so I’ll look back at the wave of 2014 and look ahead to the future of the GOP-run 114th Congress.
I’m sure I’ll come up with some other topics and news stories to comment on, plus I’ll be opening up the phones so tune in for call in instructions!
Off the top, we’ll do a whirl-around of domestic politics and a preview of Election Day with Washington Examinercommentary writer Ashe Schow (@AsheSchow). Ashe is one of my favorite guests, and in addition to pre-election review, we’ll also be sure to cover the latest in her writing on the politicization of sexual assault in America’s college campuses.
Then, for the second half of the program, I’m welcoming Katrina Jørgensen (@Veribatim, A Single Voice) of FTR Radio‘s World Class Hour and writer at IJReview back so we can leave the shores of the United States and focus on what’s going on in the rest of the world. Boko Haram has been back in the news, there’s still concern over the potential for runaway Ebola in Africa, the United Kingdom might leave the European Union, and much, much more!

Their Finest Hour is taking Monday, October 13th off from live broadcasting on Vigilant Liberty Radio, so I’ve queued up two great replays for you! Either catch up on what you missed, or enjoy them all over again!
UPDATE: REPLAY ADDED!! I’m returning live to Vigilant Liberty Radio at 10pm Eastern/7pm Pacific on Monday, September 29th for another great edition of Their Finest Hour! I’ve got a great program planned with two fantastic guests for an evening of talk on both domestic and foreign news and policy items!
UPDATE – REPLAY ADDED BELOW! Their Finest Hour returns live to Vigilant Liberty Radio at 10pm Eastern/7pm Pacific on Monday, August 25th! There’s a lot of great talk and commentary on tap, plus I’ll be opening up the phones in the 11:00 hour!
First up will be Matt Lewis (@mattklewis) of The Daily Caller and The Week. Matt’s segment is being pre-recorded mid-Monday afternoon, and will be a whirlwind of current events from Iraq, to Ferguson, to the Rick Perry indictment, a look-ahead to the mid-term elections, and much more!
Then in hour two, TFH will return to where I started just over a year ago with a live visit from my very first guest, Kevin Boyd (@kevinboyd1984)! Kevin writes all over the place it seems, so we’ll be getting his takes on what I covered with Matt Lewis, and anything else that comes up.
UPDATE: REPLAY ADDED!!!! Their Finest Hour returns live to Vigilant Liberty Radio on Monday night, August 4, at 10pm Eastern/7pm Pacific for another great show, and its relaunch (in theory) as a regularly scheduled two-hourprogram!
Great show was had with my guests, here’s the replay right at the top for your convenience. You can click “Spreaker” in the player to get an MP3 copy for offline listening too!
Then in the second half I’ll welcome Twitter’s @BiasedGirl, Mickey White, back for another TFH visit as well! Since both of us are die-hard members of Steelers Nation, we’ll definitely have some talk on the opening of NFL training camps and the absurd lack of league punishment handed out to the Baltimore Ravens’ Ray Rice for his captured-on-video domestic violence incident. We’ll also do an “around the horn” for current events, including the immigration/border crisis, Ebola in Africa and the transportation of an infected American patient back to the United States, the latest on Israel/Gaza, Congress heading off to vacation before the midterm elections push, and her own takes on how we can penetrate new regions and reach new voters.
The fun starts at 10pm Eastern (9 Central/8 Mountain/7 Pacific) so set your reminders now! While you’re waiting for show time, please make sure you’ve got your likes and follows in for both Vigilant Liberty Radio (Facebook, Twitter) and Their Finest Hour (Facebook, Twitter)!
