Tonight on The Independents (Fox Business Network, 9 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. PT, repeats three hours later) we begin where both the 114th Congress and the fresh new issue of Reason magazine start from: with a policy agenda for 2015. What will be on the Indies/Reason wishlist of utterly achievable federal goals? Stay tuned tonight, and—what the hell, take a look here, at reason.com/policyagenda2015.
On to help with the dreamcatching are Party Panelists Charles W. Cooke (National Review) and and Joe DeVito (the wonderful/terrible world of comedy), who will also assess the failed coup against re-elected House Speaker John Boehner, the state of Connecticut coercing a 17-year-old to undergo chemotherapy, and the state of Colorado engaging in kinder, gentler pot propaganda.
Did you know that the FBI has been using decoy cellphone towers called stingrays to hoover up your metadata? Well sure; you read Reason. But the latest news is that the agency is brazenly telling Congress that it does not need warrants for such behavior. We'll discuss. Also, Kmele Foster will give us an update on what President Barack Obama is doing, or trying to do, with the remaining inmates at Guantanamo Bay. And Kennedy will defend herself from the Media Matterses of the world, who are upset that she used "slut-shaming" and "Dodd-Frank" in the same paragraph earlier today.
Fox News Supreme Court analyst Shannon Bream will be on to talk about that magical two-phrase pairing: "Bill Clinton" and "sex scandal." Comedian Jimmy Failla will run through the weather, Chris Christie's football fandom, and Harry Reid's broken face; then you can watch the whole thing come unraveled on the online-only aftershow, at foxbusiness.com/independents.
