The Liberty Hour Program Cancelled Yet Again!

After barely 2 months on the air, The Liberty Hour Program heard at has been cancelled yet again for “reasons unknown”. The program, despite being on the air only a short period of time, had accumulated over 1,000 subscribers and as many as 10,000 downloads of the various programs done. Several phone calls and emails to the hosting site have not been returned.

Readers of this website and listeners of the program will recall that back in late September 2009, John Stadtmiller, director of the Republic Broadcasting Network which hosted the Liberty Hour radio program for 18 months cancelled the program without warning, justifying his decision by saying the attack on the Liberty was “ancient history” and that enough had been said about the topic on his radio network.

Coincidentally (or not) barely a month prior to the cancellation of The Liberty Hour radio program at RBN, I was personally fired from the newspaper for which I had been a writer for over 2 years, American Free Press, by chief editor James P. Tucker who later gloated in the office in front of AFP employees that he knew he had done “the right thing” in “getting rid” of me and who also referred disparagingly to USS liberty survivor and co-host of the Liberty Hour radio program Phil Tourney as “that asshole”.

Now, barring some forthcoming reasonable explanation from, it would appear that certain persons and interests uncomfortable with discussion of Israel’s attack on the USS Liberty have put pressure on the site hosting the program as evidenced by the notification that the program has been cancelled, even though all the costs associated with it have been paid up front and in full. The fact that this decision on the part of the hosting site comes immediately on the heels of the release of Phil Tourney’s long awaited book “What I Saw That Day…Israel’s 1967 Holocaust of American Servicemen on the High Seas And Its Aftermath” cannot result in anything but a heavily-pregnant-with-implications “hmmmmmmmmm….” from the better informed when it comes to Israel’s murderous attack on the USS Liberty 42 years ago.

Rest assured that Phil and I will not allow the enemies of America and of free speech to have the last laugh. We will, as in the case of our program being cancelled from RBN, simply find another venue in getting the truth out concerning what took lace June 8, 1967 when the state of Israel deliberately attacked a United States ship, the USS liberty, resulting in the deaths of 34 American sailors in the attempt to sink the ship and blame it on Israel’s Arab enemies, namely Egypt.
