The Young Turks - 9.16.14: Rush Limbaugh, Koch Bros, NFL vs Rihanna & Homeless Man Living It UP!

Cenk hosts TYT. Another video of Limbaugh shows him claiming that “no means yes, when you know how to spot it.” Bobby Jindal spoke to reporters at the Christian Science Monitor breakfast about his Presidential aspirations. Jindal calls the Obama Admin, Science Deniers for not being open to even more energy drilling in a video. During the same appearance, Jindal dodged a line of questioning about whether or not he believes in evolution. Similarly, ISIS’ new stronghold on areas in the Middle East has allowed them to systematically change the school curriculum, eliminating sciences, math, and history, including the theory of evolution. When Harry Reid and Democrats openly went after the Koch Brothers earlier this year by calling out their shady influence on politics with their money, the establishment deemed it stupid and desperate. A video shows Joe Scarborough vehemently speaking out against the plan.  Cenk called the plan smart back in March. A new study shows that the Koch Brothers name has become an identifier of the “fat cats” that a large majority of Americans don’t like, or trust. Additionally, the connection of the Koch Brothers to the Republican Party have helped Democrats that utilized this accurate attack. Amazing Fact of the Day: In Iowa, 71% of voters said they wouldn’t support a candidate that they knew was funded by the Koch Brothers. The Koch Brothers have invested in “education.” Internal memos from Florida State, one of the schools they donated $1 million to, showed that in return for their money, the Kochs wanted the school to only hire faculty to teach economic beliefs that they benefit from. They also wanted the curriculum to focus on distrust in the government. If their demands weren’t followed, they would pull their funding from the school.

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. During last Thursday’s NFL game on CBS, the station decided to pull Rihanna’s pre recorded performance due to the fact that Ray Rice’s situation was spotlighted in the news, and that she was a victim of domestic violence. They felt it would be in bad taste to do so. A profile report was done on a homeless man that has sex with several women each week for a roof over his head. Arizona’s Vice Chair has a history of disgusting comments, but his latest comments about sterilizing poor women on welfare have put him in hot water.

The Young Turks - 9.12.14: Palin Fight, Fox News Sexism, Ben Carson, George Zimmerman & Sex

Cenk, Ben, John Iadarola, and Michael Shure hosting. The Palin family was allegedly involved in a “dogpile” fight over the weekend at a snowmachine party. The police confirmed that the Palin’s were at the party. A partygoer confirmed the accounts of what happened at the party on Good Morning America. After this appearance, he was mysteriously fired from his job. Now that Josh Earnest replaced Jay Carney as the WH press secretary, Bob Beckel talked about how he looks better than his predecessor. He went on to say that Kimberly Guilfoyle only got her job at Fox due to her long legs. Ben Carson claimed that domestic violence against women isn’t a very big problem in our country, until Bill O’Reilly pushed back, causing him to change his mind immediately. John gives the startling numbers that show the extremely high occurrence of domestic violence.

Ana joins the panel for SCS. George Zimmerman got into a road rage altercation and threatened to kill the other driver. After it was over, he showed up to the man’s workplace the next day, causing the police to be called. Rep Jim Clyburn spoke about ways they can get out the vote, like sexting. Documents have been released showing that the federal gov’t forced Yahoo to hand over user data by fining them hundreds of thousands of dollars/day. A Pennsylvania teenager is facing 2 years in jail for mimicking oral sex with a Jesus statue. A study indicates that men with bigger bellies make better lovers. Ben talks about how awesome it would be if sex was good and quick. Vogue has officially declared that we are in the era of the big booty. Ana points out how out of touch the magazine is based on the way they wrote the piece. John wonders why anyone would read a magazine, but Ben likes to have something tangible in his hands while reading. Cenk talks about how the only men that read Men’s Health magazines are on “the spectrum.”

The Young Turks - 9.11.14: Obama's ISIS Strategy, GOP Reaction & Another Michael Brown Shooting Tape

Cenk hosting. In a prime time address last night to the nation, President Obama has authorized air strikes in Syria and Iraq to fight against ISIS. President Obama said that it is “America that has the will and the capacity to mobilize against terrorism”. President Obama mentioned that there is “no plotting” or current plans from ISIS to attack America. President Obama has not pursued congressional authority for the air strikes. Chuck Hagel says that ISIS is “an imminent threat” to every interest we have. Cenk breaks down the real reason why we are pursuing ISIS and reveals many sources like the NY Times mentioning that there is no corroborative evidence regarding ISIS planning to attack the US. Ted Cruz ,appearing on Fox News, gives his reaction to the speech mentioning that President Obama’s remarks are “fundamentally unserious” and manufactures a new Republican talking point calling it the “Obama/Clinton foreign policy”. Marco Rubio also appears on Fox News and joins in on that talking point.

Cenk and Ana hosting. A new video has surfaced from CNN of the Michael Brown shooting and the video is helping confirm what other witness saw during the shooting. Benton Mackenzie of Iowa, was facing at least 15 years in jail for growing 71 pot plants in order to help treat his terminal cancer, but received probation instead. Brenton was not allowed to mention his cancer as part of his defense. Republicans like Bobby Jindal are beginning to change their tune about allowing the pill to be obtained over the counter in order to pursue more votes in the 2016 midterm election.

The Young Turks - 9.10.14: Battle For The Net, War pt.2, Sports & Unmarried Americans

Cenk hosting. Some websites have declared war on the FCC to urge them to do the right thing on Net Neutrality. They’ve launched an ad to tons of internet users, asking them to join the fight against “Team Cable” who are being given the power to suspend speech on the web. Obama also appointed a former lobbyist for these companies as head of the FCC. The 3 main porn sites have also joined the fight against the FCC as they have 50 million people viewing their content daily. Former WH Spox Jay Carney recently retired, and will start his new gig with CNN tonight, breaking down the President’s ISIS speech. Cenk is amazed that CNN thinks that having Carney on board is a big pickup that will drive people to watch their political analysis. Obama is expected to basically start a war with 3 countries tonight, in search of ISIS and the perception that Democrats can be tough on foreign policy, like Republicans are. He will declare that he has authorization to go to war without consent from Congress, a policy that was 1st illegally implemented by George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. The worst part is that he could easily have Congress vote in favor of it and not be solely left on the hook for this war. Sen Tom Harkin warned that this is going to be a repeat of what we did after 9-11. Hillary Clinton aides are getting word out that she would be more hawkish on foreign policy than the “passive” nature Obama has taken. The Democratic Party has become one that is trying to out-Republican, Republicans. Pundits like Chris Matthews, Chuck Todd, & Peter Johnson of Fox News are egging on the upcoming march for war. Now that Matthews is thirsty for war and carnage again, Cenk remembers when he wholeheartedly gave Bush praise for the Iraq War, right before he claimed he was always against it. Cenk predicts that this will happen again with our next invasion over ISIS.

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. A Burger joint in Philly posted a receipt of Eagles’ LeSean McCoy since he only left a 20 cent tip, hoping to shame him. It backfired. Cenk and Ana talk about how much they hate this phenomenon of posting a patron’s receipt online. Cenk tells the story of Billy Bob’s cheesesteak where their customer service sometimes led to beatings. NBC News fired one of its producers after he secretly filmed sex with his girlfriend and posted it online at a sextape site. After she discovered it, he admitted to it, and was arrested. New data shows that for the 1st time, a majority of American adults are unmarried at 50.2%.  In 1976, it was at 37%.

The Young Turks - 09.09.14: The Business Of War, Scott Brown, ISIS & Wendy Davis Interview

Cenk hosting. Scott Brown was being introduced at a New Hampshire rally by Chris Sununu, with hopes of convincing the people of the state will forget he’s actually from Massachusetts. Video of Sununu calling Brown phony over and over again while trying to hype up the small crowd is shown. New reports about the situation with ISIS, and the latest consequences of bombing them. Reuters investigated and found that although many members of the terror group have been run out of towns, the Shi’ite militia have begun cutting off Sunni heads, the way Sunni members of ISIS were previously doing. In addition, Kurds are not happy with Sunnis that have joined ISIS living nearby, and they feel that they have to go.  End the end, the Shi’ite IS has taken up where the first ISIS left off. Cenk talks about the only chance we had to potentially peacefully divide the country between the three groups. The Special Operations portion of our military has been privatized, spending $13 billion worth of contracts over 5 years, to 3000 companies. 8 of those companies received over 50% of this jackpot.

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Wendy Davis’ interview with GMA included her revelation about the abortion she had, and why she had to have it. She also discussed her Mother’s mental health issues following a divorce. Opponents claim that she’s making it up.
