Each evening, Kennedy will be joined by her co-hosts, Reason magazine's Matt Welch and America's Future Foundation's Kmele Foster, as well as a rotating panel of experts. FBN's Stossel, hosted by John Stossel, will continue to appear at 9PM/ET on Thursdays.

I guess the Zionist need some fake libertarians to sell more war.

Do not put your faith in the FAUX Jews network, they'll let you down every time.

They should have kept Judge

They should have kept Judge Nap's show.

I agree, but unfortunately

I agree, but unfortunately his ratings were less than 20K per show..

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

No one can hold a candle to

No one can hold a candle to The Judge, but Kennedy is pretty damn cool... and funny too. I'm excited!

I am surprised that he had so

I am surprised that he had so few viewers. I thought for sure that it was a wildly popular show. I guess it was only cool in the circle I was traveling in at the time lol.

You should start traveling in

You should start traveling in that circle again. I am certain that they miss you.

I'd like to see at least the first show.

I'm sure it won't stack up to Freedom Watch with the constant dropping of truth bombs from The Judge but still I think this is pretty good news for libertarians. Matt Welch is someone I do like as a libertarian voice to have out there and he is pretty well spoken when he does tv interviews. Not too sure about Kennedy because I haven't seen much of her but it is at least cool that she identifies as a libertarian. The third guy Kmele Foster I've honestly never heard of but he has contributed to Reason in the past.

Kennedy is pretty good

But she's no judge. :) this show may not be freedom watch, but it only helps grow our message , and opens doors to talk to people about liberty, especially Fox News watchers, soon to be former Neocons, and former fox watchers, eventually converted to dailypaul.com readers. ;)

I dont need it

But it will be good for others, until they get a watered down version of libertarianism that doesn't address key issues.

In the end still better to have the MSM spewing arrogant lies. Makes for easier waking up.

Like Beck....this is a sad

Like Beck....this is a sad attempt to round up any lost stragglers and get them back in the GOP line.
