#TFH on #VLR 8/24: Deconstructing the Immigration Discussion

TFHRsquareVLR2 i loved this UPDATE: REPLAY ADDED!! Their Finest Hour returns to Vigilant Liberty Radio tonight (Monday, 8/24) at 10pm Eastern, 7pm Pacific! Hopefully you’ll come join the show in VLR’s chatroom and interact with the program! You can, of course, also use the #TFH hashtag on Twitter or tweet me directly during the program while you’re listening using the other embedded players around the site, direct on Spreaker, or using a Spreaker mobile device app! And naturally, the phones will be open! Listen in or watch Twitter for the call-in instructions!

IMG_6696In 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!

TFH Live, August 4: Let’s Widen the Map!

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-hour program!

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!

To start tonight, I’ll be welcoming Congressional candidate Nick Di Iorio back to the program. Nick first appeared on TFH in the wake of CPAC back in March. We’ll get an update from him as to how his campaign to unseat Democrat Carolyn Maloney in the New York 12th District is going, plus we’ll get into a wider discussion of issues. Nick recently published an op-ed entitled “Why I Am a Republican”, which speaks to some of the challenges conservatives and libertarians face in winning over new groups of voters. Should be a great discussion that you won’t want to miss! Don’t forget to keep up with Nick’s campaign web site, and also follow him on Twitter and “like” him on Facebook!

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.

We may even open up the phones in the second half! Regardless, you’ll want to join the program and interact with us in VLR’s chatroom with embedded show player (refresh the page at showtime to get the live stream in the player). If you’re not able to join us in chat, you can also get the program in the player here in the right sidebar, direct on VLR’s Spreaker page, or using one of Spreaker’s mobile device apps.

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)!

Today, in the closing days of the two hundred and thirty-seventh year of American Independence, less than one hundred and fifty years since the constitutional abolition of slavery in the United States, we take that abolition completely for granted. That’s a bold statement, I know, but I believe it completely justified.
