Tonight on The Independents: Our New War, With John Bolton, Thaddeus McCotter, and Michael Weiss; Plus Cuddle Parties, White House Jumpers, Confessions of an Asset-Forfeiture Judge, the Steve Hayes Terrorist Threat, and Aftershow


Michael Peña's edgiest role yet. |||

Last night's episode of The Independents got a little caddywhompus with the whole bombing-begins-15-minutes-into-the-show thing, but such are the joys of live television. On tonight's installment (Fox Business Network, 9 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. PT, with re-airs three hours later) we'll dive back into bombing and murk, with a hawkish Party Panel of former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton and laconic former GOP congressman Thaddeus McCotter. Ubiquitous foreign policy talker Michael Weiss will then come on to walk us through the latest Scariest Threat You Never Heard About Until Literally Like Twelve Hours Ago, Khorasan.

John Yoder, director of the Justice Department's Asset Forfeiture Office from 1983-85, will explain why he thinks it should be abolished. The co-hosts will discuss the implications of jumping the White House fence. Bolton and McCotter will be forced to comment on cuddling apps, and I will likely cheer the Transportation Security Administration's placing of Weekly Standard journalist Stephen Hayes on the "high risk" list of airline passengers, because of comedy gold.

Assuming no pre-emption by crazy breaking news, online-only aftershow begins at foxbusiness.com/independents just after 10. Follow The Independents on Facebook at facebook.com/IndependentsFBN, follow on Twitter @ independentsFBN, and click on this page for more video of past segments.
