The Young Turks - 09.03.14: ISIS, Libya, Celebgate & PewDiePie vs. YouTube Comments

Cenk Hosting.  Heather Childers tweets her opinions about ISIS, begging Obama to take action against the Islamic State.  Geraldo Rivera steps in, suggesting US beheads the ISIS members.  In a recent speech, Joe Biden echoes these sentiments, claiming the US will “follow [ISIS] into the gates of hell,” and Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty appears on Hannity, reading from the Bible and relating verses to his opinions of ISIS, saying the group needs to be converted or killed.  Cenk explains terrorist actions against the group will only continue the cycle of violence–ISIS can not be stopped by threats of bombs and bloodshed.  Cenk then explains the history of Saudi Arabia and the region’s ideological background leading to ISIS, as well as their link to the oil industry.  Libya continues to rapidly dissolve after 11 commercial jets go missing, feared to be under the control of Ansar al-Sharia.

A silver lining on the recent nude photo hacking of celebrites like Jennifer Lawrence, donations along with awareness have been given to prostate cancer research.

The Young Turks - 09.02.14: Another ISIS Beheading, Russia, Ukraine, Squarespace & Teen Rape Victim

Cenk hosting.  ISIS has posted another video of a 2nd journalist Steven Sotloff being beheaded.  They demanded Americans stop bombing them or else they’d kill another after James Foley’s execution was distributed.  Sotloff’s mother plead for her son’s life, but that hasn’t worked.  Videos of Fox News’ KT McFarland said that Obama has his head in the sand, causing another American to lose his head.  McFarland politicized this issue immediately by connecting it to our borders and hating on Latino immigrants.  Six militants were killed in Somalia by the American military.  This random bombing has Cenk asking how many more places around the world we can possibly be attacking while wondering why we’re always caught up in a war.  A video of Libyan militants has surfaced of them partying by the pool of the American embassy they just took in Tripoli.  Videos of Louie Gohmert trashing the DREAM Act with several bad zingers.  He and Tucker Carlson speculated that many immigrants are claiming to be school aged children when they’re actually men.  The war between Russia and Ukraine continues to escalate.  Their strategy is to send troops into Eastern Ukraine a little bit at a time while the rest of the world watches, but does nothing.

Ana joins Cenk for SCS.  Talk about TYT’s new advertiser, SquareSpace.  An 24 year old Arizona man is being pursued for years of back child support for a kid he unknowingly had when he was statutorily raped at the age of 14 by a 20 year old woman.  They’ve garnished his wages and seized his bank account.  An Oklahoma police officer has been charged with raping several Black women.  While waiting for trial, a GoFundMe account has been created by some of his supporters to raise money for him.  It has accumulated thousands of dollars of support so far.  A small town police department lost a military issued Humvee that was given to them by the federal government. It took more than a week for anyone to even realize it had been taken.

We the people have the power to removed the influence of money from politics and the power to remove corporate personhood.

But how do we remove the corrupting power of money from the corrupt members of Congress? There is a way, believe it or not, to unite over party lines to correct the Congress that sold the people out. Wolf-PAC makes headway with state representatives, and Mike Monetta is the Director of Organizing for the movement. Think the fight is impossible? Cenk Uygur sits down with Mike Monetta to show the world that it isn't.

Read about Wolf-PAC for yourself HERE: http://www.wolf-pac.com/

Wolf-PAC's goal is singular- get the power and influence of money out of politics. All too often, donors to political campaigns are able to get our representatives to work to accomplish what they want-- but what about what the citizens want? How can everyday people fight corruption in our government? Wolf-PAC volunteers-- normal citizens-- have been able to successfully get resolutions to get conventions which help us push out the power of money out of our political system. Here in California, Wolf-PAC volunteers worked hard, and saw real success with CA AJR1. Now, leaders including California State Leader Alison Hartson, California Organizer Will Yate, and California Regional Coordinator Kathy Orlinsky join founder Cenk Uygur to discuss it all. Do you think we can pass a resolution? These people are working every day to do it!

The Young Turks - 08.26.14: ISIS, Beheadings, Gay Rights, Sofia Vergara & Flight Etiquette

Ana and Ben hosting. Ben reports about ISIS’ claim that they severed the head of their own official.  Saudi Arabia has beheaded 23 people just in this month based on false confessions for petty crimes like drug possession and black magic. Family members have been threatened and told to stop disputing the killings. Ben points out that we aren’t concerned with this unjust brutality from one of our closest allies in the region. Video of pastor Michael V. Williams’ proposal for a Constitutional Amendment to imprison gays for hard labor is shown. Ben points out his unnecessary turns as he transitions.

At the Emmy’s last night, Sofia Vergara participated in a comedic bit where she was put on a spinning pedestal while a boring speech was given. Outcry on Twitter ensued. A United Airlines flight was heading to Denver, but was forced to land in Chicago when a passenger altercation over legroom broke out. One passenger bought a device that restricts the seat in front of him from reclining and it turned into water being thrown in his face. Ben rules that both passengers are wrong.
