Cenk hosts TYT. The Koch brothers are organizing their rich donors with “dark money” in a new Super PAC called “Freedom Partners Action Fund” with 25 million already in the bank. One of the donors, Ronnie Cameron, a 69 year old Arkansas poultry producer, is donating over the concern that his grandchildren will live under the threat of communism. Democratic candidate, Wendy Davis, is running an ad against Republican Greg Abbott for US Senate in TX, criticizing his record on tort reform.

Alexander Stubb, Finland’s Prime Minister, claims that the IPhone is killing the economy of Finland.

Cenk hosts TYT. The Vatican is discussing a new policy on gays. Their new document allows Catholics to welcome gay people into their community without believing it destroys their belief system. One Vatican expert called the opinion an earthquake to the system. This is seen as a re-education of Catholic followers that have been programmed. After the SCOTUS rejected cases that allowed gay marriage, the Republican Party are split on how to respond. Videos on the issue: Mike Huckabee threatens to leave the Party and tells them to grow a spine to fight gay rights. On the other hand, on Fox News Sunday, Chris Wallace and a pro gay rights guest teamed up on Tony Perkins, who is staying strong against equal rights. Wallace challenged him over what a gay couple will effectively do to harm his family. Research on polls that have accepted gay rights more and more showed that respondents changed their negative answer to positive when they were told they were being questioned by a gay person. Cenk remembers the rabid way Fox & Friends opposed Obama implementing Czars in his Admin. Video of Steve Doocy calling for Obama to install an Ebola Czar just today is played. A Wolf-PAC announcement is made.

Hour 2 with Cenk and Ana.

The Young Turks - 9.29.14: Obama, ISIS, Afghanistan, Police Shooting Update & Gay Rights Win CALI

Cenk hosts TYT today. President Obama told 60 Minutes that the intelligence department underestimated the ISIS threat as it built itself amongst the chaos of Iraq. He also said that we overestimated the willingness of Iraqis to fight. Obama outlines why we have to go in militarily to disrupt their networks in a video. Cenk is annoyed by Obama’s lack of clarity or understanding of how to do anything. Videos of Fox News’ Chris Wallace going after Obama spox Blinken over the Administration’s use of the authorization after they officially came out against the authorization to use force are also shown. In addition, Wallace grilled Blinken on Obama restarting the war after declaring the decade of war is over. Cenk points out that the past few Spox and advisors have similar names. Khorasan, the newly publicized terror group that we’re bombing in Syria has some usefulness for our scare tactics. New evidence shows that since we already declared that ISIS isn’t an imminent threat, we needed an immediate enemy threat that justifies our aggression, so we created this one in order to bomb targets connected to ISIS. A new president has been elected in Afghanistan and we’ve announced that we’ll be keeping 10K troops in the country indefinitely. Oddly enough, there was a suicide bomber near the location of the swearing in ceremony for the new president.

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Update on the NM police shooting and killing a homeless man that was camping outside on public land. Video of the original video of the execution is played again. Audio of one of the shooting officers has surfaced that shows him talking about shooting the man in the penis, just a few hours before killing him. CA Gov. Jerry Brown has vetoed a bill that would force police to get a search warrant before using a drone to spy on citizens. Jerry Brown also signed legislation that outlaws the Gay Panic Defense, which is used to get lenient sentences for homophobes that attack or kill gay people they feel are hitting on them. Gov. Brown also signed the “Yes Means Yes” law into law as well. It changes the way college campuses approach rape cases.

Dr. Christopher Ryan is the writer of Sex at Dawn, a definitive book on human sexuality in the modern age, but also way back in our past. Is monogamy natural, or does promiscuity come easier to us? Where did our modern ways of sex, grouping, child-rearing, and social structuring come from, and how did ancient humans mitigate the same topics? How have penises and vaginas evolved over time? Christopher Ryan discusses our prehistoric sexual history and how we've evolved and changed into the modern era.

Christopher Ryan is also a regular contributor to Psychology Today and runs the podcast, Tangentially Speaking with Dr. Christopher Ryan. Before writing Sex at Dawn with his wife, Ryan travelled the world teaching English to prostitutes in Bangkok and self-defense (Kung Fu) to land-reform activists in Mexico.

Ben, Ana, and Iadarola host TYT. The Obama Administration announced that Eric Holder will be stepping down by year’s end. President Obama and Holder speak on the decision in a video. Ben talks about the litany of non-scandals Republicans have tried to nail on Holder vs the number of really big accomplishments he’s had. Speculation over why he’s now resigning follows, including the possibility of being nominated to the Supreme Court if Ginsburg steps aside. Many Conservatives are very happy to see Holder go. Andrea Tantaros claims that Holder ran the DOJ like the Black Panthers. Video shows former VJ Kennedy chiming in to say he is slimier than a salamander covered in vaseline. Jonah Goldberg calls Holder a hatchet man for the President before claiming he somehow was giving a pass to the media. Ben talks about Goldberg’s comparison of Holder to Bobby Kennedy. John reads Conservative tweets bashing the AG on his way out. The PM of Iraq announced that his intelligence officials uncovered a plot by ISIS to attack subway networks in Paris and NYC.

A school in Huntsville, Alabama is spying on their students, worrying about potential gang activity on Facebook. When their actions were brought to light, they claimed that the NSA told them to monitor the students, but the NSA denied this excuse. Ben thinks it makes some sense for the school to monitor bad behavior of students in order to protect other students from threats. An update to the story of a Los Angeles woman being repeatedly punched on the shoulder of the freeway by a CHP officer is given. The officer has resigned and the bipolar woman that was beaten has received a large settlement. A state trooper in SC has been fired after video of him shooting a citizen for reaching for his license surfaced.

Ben and John host TYT. A Climate Change march of 400K people occurred over the weekend in NYC. A 45 min audio recording from ISIS calls for their potential supporters all over the world to begin killing citizens in their own countries that support the Western invasion. Ben isn’t so sure that ISIS ever had any plans to attack us, but they do now. A Senior Admin official announced that some citizens that are currently being monitored have traveled abroad to fight with the Islamic group, and have returned. A poll showed that a majority of Americans feel that religion is losing influence on society. Also, numbers on how unhappy evangelicals are about the falling numbers and religious people that believe they are discriminated against due to their religious beliefs are examined.

Ana joins Ben for SCS. With the new release of the latest Apple products, they’ve made it much tougher for anyone, including law enforcement and Apple itself, to go through the owner’s information. A Pakistani professor has been shot and killed for his moderate views that he openly espoused. Journalist LZ Granderson brought up the double standard of allowing Hope Solo to continue to play for US Soccer when she is facing a domestic violence case after she assaulted her sister and nephew. Ben sees the attention focused on Solo as a distraction, especially with the dangerous nature of her husband Jerramy Stevens.
