Video of Haley Barbour telling Morning Joe that he isn’t offended at all by the Confederate flag, but some people are, as he constantly dodged the question of whether or not it should be taken down.

Hour 1: Cenk hosting. Yesterday’s mass shooting at a historic Black church in Charleston, SC has dominated the news today. A 21-year-old White man killed 9 congregants at a Bible study. Conservatives have claimed this is a sign of attacks on religious freedom when it’s obvious that it was an attack on Black Americans based on racism. Video of Rev. EW Jackson telling Fox & Friends that it’s about Christianity and not about race. Steve Doocy called it extraordinary that it’s being deemed a hate crime. Video of Lindsey Graham pointing out that this shooting isn’t indicative of the character of South Carolina, but it’s not about race, he’s just whacked out. Video of Rick Santorum claiming it’s about attacks on religious freedom. Cenk details the many reasons it’s obvious that the shooter was motivated by race. Former classmates talked about how he’d tell racist jokes, calling him simply proud of his Southern heritage. A White Supremacist group posted to one of the murdered Reverends that his group can run for his seat since he’s dead now. While GOPers try to deny the link between SC and racism, there are at least 19 hate groups that reside in the state. Quotes from other racists that mirror the things that are often openly spouted by Conservatives. Apologists have also ignored the strong history of Black churches being bombed in American history. Cenk details why this attack was also an act of terrorism, despite media’s fear to describe it that way. The government’s plan to monitor Right Wing terrorism was vehemently opposed by Conservatives and Conservative talkers, forcing it to be shut down even though it’s the most common form of terrorism in America. The shooter’s uncle talked about how his father gave him a .45 caliber pistol for his birthday after they acknowledged he has some societal issues. Cenk proves the case that this attack is also due to our horrific gun culture and easy access to the weapons. Video of Obama pointing out the obvious fact that the gun culture is partially responsible. Video of EW Jackson making the case for pastors to begin arming themselves to protect “their flock.”

Hour 2: John and Hannah join Cenk for SCS. The treasury has announced it will feature a woman on the $10 bill, replacing Alexander Hamilton.

Cenk hosting. Now that the Pope’s encyclical on Climate Change has been leaked, Conservatives have turned on him just as Cenk predicted yesterday. Video of Cenk’s prediction. Video mashup of Conservatives going after the Pope. Donald Trump is pushing the lie that the only people crossing our southern border are rapists and drug dealers. He also made false assertions about the economy and job growth. A PPP poll showed that Mitt Romney voters largely see the Duggar family in a more positive light than President Obama, even after the sexual assault scandal that Josh took part in, and they covered up.

The TPP agreement details are being kept secret from the public while the government negotiates with multinational corporations that have tons of money to gain from it. A good cop in Baltimore, named Joe Crystal, was at the scene of a gruesome beating a few of his partners illegally carried out on a drug suspect. When Crystal felt conflicted about witnessing the crime, superiors told him to keep quiet. When the official report came out with egregiously false information accusing the suspect of starting the fight that led to his beating, Crystal pointed out the lies only to have his career abruptly ended. The approach from the top was straight out of a gang movie.

A couple that was accused of having sex too loud and fighting too loud attacked a neighbor after he complained. After they were arrested, it became known that they have been arrested 45 and 31 times since 2001 for various charges. Cenk is amazed that they continue to be released from jail, and wonders how many years a Black citizen would get for doing a small fraction of these violent crimes. A British paper, The Sunday Times published an article that claimed British spies’ names were given to Russian and Chinese spies by Snowden. It turns out The Times published this simply because it is exactly what the government told them to print.

Hour 1: Cenk and John. Electile Dysfunction segment. After Marco Rubio participated in a Koch Brothers’ sponsored event for presidential candidates claiming that the rich donors don’t want anything from the bought candidates, many lobbyists have been seen around him. Videos of Rubio playing dumb, and Ted Cruz voicing his disgust for people calling out the Kochs. During Jeb Bush’s campaign launch speech, he blatantly mischaracterized Hillary Clinton’s previous words about helping kids in foreign countries whose rights are limited based on radical Islamic beliefs. Video of Jeb forming her words to paint her as biased against Christianity in America. Although TYT has a ban on Donald Trump, his announcement to run for President forces us to cover it. Video highlights of his comical announcement.

Hour 2: Ana joins Cenk for SCS. They rave about NatureBox. After a gun toting mall security guard murdered a 20 year old woman that resisted his advances, the response from the MRA groups is very supportive of the killer. Latest on Rachel Dolezar now that she’s making the media rounds. Kareem Abdul Jabbar has come out in support of her efforts, claiming that the Black community is better off with her work. Funny memes of Rachel are now circulating. A principal gave a graduation speech in support of the school cheerleaders that caught hell for dressing up as “Mexican gangsters.” He admired them for their strength and courage.

Hour 1: Cenk hosting. The Koch Bros and Sheldon Adelson are teaming up for campaign season to collectively rig the election in their favor. Cenk outlines the Koch Brothers’ favorite candidates as well as Adelson’s. A heavily armed gunman with an armored vehicle started a shootout with Dallas Police at the police station on Saturday. He was a Conservative that felt the PD was too Liberal, and blamed them for his losing custody of his son. CNN’s Fredricka Whitfield called the shooter courageous and brave while talking about his plan to take on the entire police force. Video of her comments and eventual apology after she caught hell. Cenk is annoyed by the level of Political Correctness coming from Conservatives over this. Gun advocacy groups are up in arms over proposed legislation to force potential gun buyers to have a license and be at least 21 years old. Meanwhile, an Iowa mall cop whose online presence was full of open carry gun toting memes and 2nd Amendment talk, has been arrested for shooting and killing a 20 year old woman that worked at the mall. After she reported him for sexual harassment, he was fired, and he returned to get revenge on her.

Hour 2: Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Despite the drought California is experiencing, some rich residents are complaining about water limits that they feel should exempt them. Ana quotes a Conservative talk show host that gave the WashPost an unbelievably elitist quote. Seth MacFarlane responded to criticism over Family Guy’s past jokes about Caitlyn Jenner’s transgender identity. Keith Ablow gave his 2 cents on “transracial” Rachel Dolezar by connecting it to Caitlyn Jenner and his desire to claim he’s a senior citizen eligible for Medicare. A man facing a paternity test for a newborn baby sent a lookalike to take the test so he could be off the hook for child support, but was busted. Ana gives her theory on dating a good looking guy and how many women throw themselves at him.

The texts were sent 9 hours after the completion of the event, while he was off the clock. John doesn’t understand the reason for the uproar. Jimmy is torn, and understands why a boss may fire an employee that is doing this. For over a decade, UN Peacekeepers have been bartering relief aid for sex in countries they are sent to for help. Haiti victims were specifically detailed in these findings. Idaho legislators are proposing the Bible to be used for a litany of school subjects as a guide to learn them.

Cenk hosting. Story of McKinney Texas police officers harassing, and attacking Black teenagers at a pool party. Videos of one particular officer that threw many of the kids on the sidewalk, pinned one girl on the ground for talking back, and pulling his gun on the outraged kids. Cenk talks about the background of the officer that had many police brutality videos saved on his YouTube page. Some of the racist homeowners spoke out in support of the cops’ overreactions.

The SC cop that killed Walter Scott has been indicted for murder. Huge elections in Turkey resulted in President Erdogan’s party losing the Parliamentary majority in significant fashion. The Rand Corporation has done a study on the economic effects of peace vs more violence in the Gaza Strip between Israel and Palestine. If peace occurs, Israel would gain $120 billion, while Palestine would gain $50 billion. If conflict continues, Israel would lose $250 billion, and Palestine’s economy would drop by over 40%. Rick Perry went on FTN and complained about Wall St banks being allowed to run roughshod with no regulation, right before complaining about too much regulation on banks…small ones.

Videos of the grilling.

Electile Disfunction Segment. Ted Cruz has invited one lucky campaign supporter on a shooting excursion with him as part of a sweepstakes. One curious caveat is that the winner will have to take part in a background check even though Cruz voted against expansion of background checks. His campaign gave a bunch of senseless reasons for this hypocrisy. Lindsey Graham told CNN that Caitlyn Jenner is welcome in his Republican Party even though he’s against many rights Jenner wishes to enjoy. After Hillary Clinton seemingly endorsed a $15 minimum wage, she backed out of the assertion when it made news. After Bill O’Reilly learned that a large majority of millennials get their news from Facebook and the internet in general, he spoke to Bernie Goldberg about his outrage and disdain for young people’s cluelessness.

Video of his confusing points. Glenn Beck continues to lose his mind. Video of Beck talking about the Black Robe Regiment of ministers that are willing to walk into sure death to serve God over man. A new EPA report claims that fracking doesn’t pose a massive risk to our drinking water. The operative word is “massive” as it admitted that it does contaminate water, but it hasn’t affected widespread amounts of water in the nation. Cenk is torn, and doesn’t know if he should trust the EPA, while Jimmy isn’t confused at all, that this report is flawed since the fracking companies didn’t cooperate. Louie Gohmert complained about President Obama’s handling of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict by quoting some radical leaders’ comments about wiping Israel off the map. Video of Gohmert accusing Obama of being an accessory to terrorism.

Hour 2: Ana replaces John for SCS. An opponent of Caitlyn Jenner disputed her courage by comparing her to men with real courage, soldiers. He posted a picture of a couple of soldiers in battle to illustrate, but didn’t realize that it was a sculpture created by an artist that has endured ridicule and near death beatings for cross dressing as a woman. A researcher has discovered that financial dependence affects whether or not someone cheats. In every variable, men are more likely to cheat when they are more dependent, and when they are the breadwinner.

Hour 1: Cenk and Ana hosting. Nature Box plug. A study showed which career fields tend to be full of Republicans vs Democrats. Ted Cruz was speaking to a supportive crowd at a campaign stop and made a few jokes about VP Biden. Videos of his jokes, and him walking away from a reporter that asked him why he chose to target Biden during his time of grieving over his son’s death. Cenk gives him the benefit of the doubt that he possibly forgot the horrible news about his son until he saw him walk away from the question. The anti-choice legislation that Scott Walker is planning on signing includes language that would allow the father of the baby to sue the doctor for “emotional distress.” This comes right after Walker claimed women that are raped get over it in the 1st couple of months of the pregnancy, so its ok to force them to carry out the pregnancy.

Hour 2: Meundies plug. Video of Tara Lynn Belcher from South Carolina loses her nerve against a customer by calling him the “N” word because she says she’s “an angry bitch”.

After Pope Francis has announced he will put out an encyclical about climate change, Rick Santorum told a radio show that the Church should leave science to the scientists since they’re wrong on this. Scott Walker responded to the critics of his anti-abortion bill that wouldn’t protect victims of rape or incest by claiming they only worry about it during the 1st couple of months. Video.

Hour 2: Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Preview of Megyn Kelly’s interview with the Duggars, where they are clearly out to do damage control and have their victim daughters say everything is ok. Kelly already said she will not ask them any tough questions. An Atlanta man went to the airport and carried an AR-15 with a 100 round drum to drop his daughter off for a flight. He knew it was legal to walk through the unsecured areas, where he was only asked questions by a few law enforcement officials. He was offended he was even asked about his gun and permit. Cenk imagines what the scene would be if a Muslim did the same thing. A Black family in Mississippi was arrested and cited a week after their child graduated from high school for celebrating as her name was called the ceremony. They were also kicked out of the event when it happened.

Glenn Beck and his crew disputed the fact that global warming caused the drought and flooding in Texas, right before claiming that it was because of Rick Perry’s prayer and fasting in Idaho that the drought ended. Cenk remembers that Glenn Beck is really losing his mind, video of him claiming that his time of calling is coming, where giants will be made. Sepp Blatter has resigned as head of FIFA, just days after his reelection.

An 18 year old Black man was shot and killed by police at a WalMart. Authorities claimed he was shoplifting without proof, and threatened to arrest his mother when she asked what was going on. The officer that killed the man has a history of killing unarmed citizens, posting Nazi imagery online, and one of his supervisors warned that the officer is dangerous and likely to cause more harm. Findings show that cops are responsible for 1 in every 13 gun deaths, and that the rate is rising. One third of the time a Black citizen is killed by cops, they are unarmed, and two thirds are all minorities. The crime of manspreading on NYC subways that was created to allow more space for subway riders has been applied to harass and arrest primarily Black and Latino riders. 94% of the people detained via this law were minorities.

He dislikes that this is leading to a new reality show on E! Tracy Morgan appeared on the Today Show to talk about his extremely devastating car accident that killed his friend, and nearly killed him. Cenk talks about the likely scenario in the settlement process that would have Morgan speak highly of their reaction to the accident. A Muslim woman was denied an unopened can of Coke on a United airlines flight, because they claimed policy won’t allow it since it could be used as a weapon. When she noticed that her neighboring passenger was given a closed can of beer, she asked others if its unfair, only to be berated with a racial tirade.

Hour 1: Cenk and John Iadarola. Rand Paul has announced his bid for President in 2016 as a different kind of Republican candidate. John outlines the radically insane cuts included in his proposed budgetary agenda. His cuts to foreign assistance to countries like Israel indicate his label as a Libertarian.

After Indiana caught hell for passing discriminatory laws against gays in the form of religious freedom, a proposed fix to the law has been introduced to specifically create a caveat that excluded gays from the discrimination.

A poll of Millennials on morality, showed that they feel casual sex to be more morally wrong than homosexuality. They also believe that contraception should be widely available to college students. Ana thinks they think this way because many Millennials are underemployed and can’t afford to responsibly get married and have to hold off on sex. A Nebraska proposal would allow dirty fracking water from out of state to be dumped into the state’s disposal system, which could seep into the drinking water. One farmer in the state went to a committee hearing about the issue and asked the panel if they’d drink the water contaminated with fracking ingredients, which they refused to answer.

One of the reasons for the exodus is the Obama Admin’s plan to give free Community College, which targets the same students being taken advantage of by these schools.

Ana wonders how Ted Cruz will respond to this problem within his favorite music genre.

The Young Turks - 3.10.15: Tom Cotton’s Letter To Iran, Racist Frat & Unarmed Man Shot

Cenk and Ana. After 47 Republican Senators sent an undermining letter to Iran about the negotiations process, the criticism came down hard from the President to fellow Republicans to pundits. Video of Obama calling the move ironic. Joe Biden wrote a scathing response to the move, as well. Republican Bob Corker disagreed with this move because he wanted to undermine it in an official way, not by sending rouge letters to Iran. Freshman Sen Tom Cotton went on MSNBC to double down on his position to send a letter to Iranian leaders. Coincidentally, Tom Cotton is set to appear at a conference put on by lobbyists for defense contractors, contractors that have a lot of money to make on another war in the Middle East. Cotton also promoted the idea of striking Iran’s nuclear facilities because Israel did it to Iraq and Syria. Video of Cotton claiming that the only deal he is willing to accept from Iran is complete disarmament, and the threat of war needs to be on the table.

Hannah Cranston joins Cenk and Ana for SCS. Fallout from the Univ of Oklahoma frat chanting controversy continues. They’ve expelled two of the leaders of the chant seen on video, and a top football recruit has rescinded his commitment.

The Young Turks - 3.9.15: Ebay, Netanyahu, Iran, Rape, Racist Frat & Teen Killed

Cenk hosting. He goes off about how Ebay invalidated the sale of his Grand Am at $50K. As peace negotiations continue with Iran and the WH, the Republican led Congress is looking to torpedo the agreement in another way since Netanyahu spoke in America. 47 Senators have sent a scathing letter to the leaders of Iran to let them know that if they don’t ratify the WH agreement, it isn’t binding, hinting that they will not honor it and do what they want. This is another strategy to undermine the authority of the President in favor of a foreign leader. Several former Senators have formed a group called American Security Initiative that created an ad that depicts an American city being blown up by a nuclear bomb unless we oppose a deal with Iran. Video of the fear mongering ad.

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. A wrongfully convicted man has been awarded millions of dollars after he spent over 20 years in prison, where he was raped and given HIV. He was exonerated after he served all of the time for rape and burglary. Cenk challenges our allowed rape culture in prisons. Some officials in the DC area don’t think he deserves all of the $9.2 million that he’s to receive. The SAE frat at University of Oklahoma was caught on tape chanting racist things about never allowing Black students into the organization. The Univ came down hard on the frat, disbanding it and making all of the members move out within 24 hours. Another story of an unarmed 19 year old man was shot and killed by police in Wisconsin after a physical altercation broke out between the two. It has since been discovered that the kid had ADD.

Cenk hosting. Cenk talks about his trip to Detroit and the severe blight problem in the city. Videos of their experiences in the devastated city. Wolf PAC news; the amendment to get money out of politics has passed the heavily Republican House in New Hampshire. Videos of Republican Rep and Senator speaking about their support for the amendment.

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. India has banned a documentary that exposes the details behind the brutal New Delhi rape and murder that happened last year. One of the rapists that was interviewed said some hideous things, so the country’s officials nixed it so that he wouldn’t have a platform to spew his vitriol. Ana & Cenk don’t agree with the decision. An American man that works for a company in the UAE complained via Facebook about his employer while spending time back at home in Florida. Upon his return to UAE, he was immediately arrested for slandering his employer, which is against the law. He could face up to 5 years in prison. A lesbian Nigerian is being denied asylum in Britain since her home country is out to kill her over her sexual orientation. Britain doesn’t believe she is really a lesbian because she has kids from an earlier relationship.

The Young Turks - 3.4.15: Ben Carson, Chris Matthews, Sex Toys & Dating

Cenk and Iadarola hosting. Ben Carson discussed same sex marriage with Chris Cuomo on CNN, claiming that its nothing like Civil Rights because people choose to be gay. Proof of this is that ex prisoners come out gay. Cenk’s unique take is that Carson isn’t entirely wrong because of the sexuality spectrum. After Netanyahu’s speech to Congress yesterday, Chris Matthews pointed out that its the only time a foreign leader came in to take foreign policy power away from President Obama, with the help of Republicans.

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Sex toys that connect to apps have the potential to get hacked by outside forces. Cenk wonders what people would do to someone’s dildo if they gained control. A 50 year old NYC man put out fliers asking for a girlfriend, and received hundreds of calls and text messages per day. He claims to have had 118 hookups with women, but hasn’t found a girlfriend yet. He’s planning on doing a documentary on his experiences. Ana admits she’s being judgmental and doesn’t really believe his story. Cenk talks about how this success story actually makes him glad he’s married and off the market because he would put too much energy into getting laid in this new age of hooking up. Cosmopolitan magazine did a story on what women want in men. They included household duties, hair, and height.
