Tonight's episode of The Independents (Fox Business Network, 9 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. PT, with re-airs three hours later) begins on a happy note: The U.S. District Court in Oregon has declared that the process for people to appeal their improper inclusion on the federal no-fly list is unconstitutional. On hand to react are Party Panelists Julie Roginsky of Fox News, and conservative commentator Kayleigh McEnany, who will also discuss a plan by House Democrats to provide free legal counsel to the abandoned immigrant children piling up on the southern border, and Dick Cheney's prediction in a radio interview today that the United States will be hit by a worse-than-9/11 terrorist attack within the next decade.

Dan Caldwell, the issue and legislative campaign manager of Concerned Veterans for America, will break down the latest grim V.A. report; Amity Shlaes will discuss the new graphic novelization of her 2007 F.D.R. bio The Forgotten Man (hopefully providing some Obama-administration comparisons); and the co-hosts will discuss actor Gary Oldman's politics-outing Playboy interview and also the new proposal from Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) to re-enfranchise some ex-felons.
