Tonight on The Independents: Thomas Massie on Hemp, Julian Sanchez on the NSA, Christie's Saber-Rattling, Hillary's Age, Mrs. De Blasio's Parenting, Switzerland's Minimum-Wage Rejection, Plus Sexy After-show!


Tonight's live episode of The Independents (Fox Business Network, 9 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. PT, repeats three hours later) begins with Party Panelists Katie Pavlich (co-host, Outnumbered) and Basil Smikle (Democratic political strategist)  chewing on possible weaknesses of two major-party presidential candidates for 2016: Hillary Clinton's age/health, and Chris Christie's hawkishness. Later in the show the panel will be back to talk about the fake 9/11 gift shop controversy.

Beloved former Reasoner Julian Sanchez, now of Cato, will then come on to talk about some of the latest National Security Agency fooferaw: The physical hacking into Cisco Systems, the listening in on "every phone call in the Bahamas." There follows a discussion about New York Mayor Bill De Blasio's wife, Chirlane McCray, recalling about her daughter when she was an infant, "the truth is, I could not spend every day with her." 

Then frequent guest Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Kentucky) comes on to talk about the feds getting between his constituents and legal hemp. And I'll deliver a quick rant about people giving superly-duperly prosperous Switzerland a hard time for note adopting a $25 per hour minimum wage.
