Power Panel with Cenk, Ben, Jimmy Dore and John Iadarola. CNN does coverage of the VA shooter with references that the shooter operated gay websites.  Guns are not the reason for violent crime. It’s the crime itself.  England, Japan, and Netherlands have low crime rate.  In the states, we have more deaths because of an iron object that is used upon the crime. If guns are everywhere it is possible that more people will die in a violent crime.

Power Panel with Cenk, Ben, Jimmy, and Ana. John Felton was pulled over because he didn’t signal early enough. But the truth is the police said he made direct eye contact.  17 years old was sentenced to 11 years to prison because of his support of ISIS. Also, he convinces his friend to go to Syria to join ISIS.

Harvard Law Professor and longtime political activist Lawrence Lessig wants to win the presidency of the United States to accomplish one critical objective: ending the corrupting influence of money on politics. With that done, he says he’ll step down and let someone else take over the Oval Office. It’s a radical notion, the single-issue presidential candidacy, but as he points out, only a radical solution can wrest back control of our democracy from the monied interests who have steadily come to dominate American political life.

In this exclusive interview, Lessig and The Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur discuss:

- The Kickstarter campaign that will decide whether Lessig officially runs for president.
- Why, even if one of them were to become president, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton have no hope of eliminating money from politics.
- Why the American people would get behind a one-issue candidacy to get money out of politics.
- Why the Democratic party is as guilty as Republicans for the current corrupt system.
- Whether Donald Trump’s candidacy is helpful or harmful to the cause of money in politics.
- The Three Prongs of Political Corruption that a Citizen Equality Act would deal with.
- Whether he would govern as president on other issues while trying to pass the Citizen Equality Act.
- How the fight against money in politics is the Civil Rights issue of our time, and that now is when the American people need to come together in shared sacrifice to take back democracy.

The top 5 includes Marco Rubio and Bobby Jindal.

 

Hour 2: Ana replaces John for SCS. One of the unmentioned negative side effects of the Ashley Madison info leak is that in many countries around the world, gay affairs and extra marital affairs are punishable by death.
