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!
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!
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)!

“Sec. 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.”…
Now, therefore, be it known, that I, William H. Seward, Secretary of State of the United States…do hereby certify that the amendment aforesaid has become valid, to all intents and purposes, as a part of the Constitution of the United States.
In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand, and caused the seal of the Department of State to be affixed.
Done at the city of Washington, this eighteenth day of December, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-five, and of the Independence of the United States of America the ninetieth.
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.
