Tonight on The Independents: Radley Balko on Ferguson, Obama's War Powers, the Pope Blesses Bombing, a Mother Endorses Cannabis, More 'Enemies of Freedom,' Robot Butlers, and Paunchy Men Who Call Michelle Obama Overweight


Because libertarians are notoriously silent when it comes to criminal justice issues, The Independents (Fox Business Network, 9 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. PT, with re-airs three hours later) will for the third consecutive night talk about the ongoing fiasco in Ferguson, Missouri, this time with the libertarian Washington Post writer Radley Balko, whose groundbreaking work on criminal justice has not only inspired an entire generation of libertarians, but who also won a "Journalist of the Year" award in 2011 for work he did on the topic here at Reason. We'll do our best to catch up.

Party Panelists Guy Benson  (Townhall political editor) and Richard Fowler ("Progressive Messaging Expert and all around good guy") will talk about the Pope's endorsement of U.S. airstrikes in Iraq, President Barack Obama's flexible relationship with the War Powers Act, a mom being kicked out of a pizzeria for changing her baby's diaper, and our new robot-butler overlords. Then comes the latest installment of "Enemies of Freedom." Previously:

Rachael Garner, mother of a toddler who she says had her life saved by cannabis, will describe her experiences with the medical establishment. And then Kennedy will respond to critics of her appearance earlier this week alongside Fox psychiatric analyst Keith Ablow, who drew derisive snorts among the lady co-hosts of Outnumbered by saying that Michelle Obama "needs to drop a few" pounds.
