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.

Ana and Iadarola host TYT. The United States has started airstrikes on terror targets on 4 ISIS-held cities in Syria. Bill O’Reilly simply outlines his mercenary plan to defeat ISIS.

John reads his stances on domestic policy surrounding food stamps and starving citizens.

Ana and John host SCS. After a local news reporter quit on a live broadcast using the words, “fuck it,” a firestorm has ensued. The FCC is coming after her for the words. She later put up a video explaining in more detail about why she left and what her future plans are. NH police raided a home and shot a grandmother that reached for her baby as they busted in. Police officials in Oklahoma respond to allegations of several officers  raping women during routine pullovers. After outlining things police officers aren’t supposed to do, one official said the best way to avoid rape is to not break the law to get yourself pulled over in the first place.

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.

Now, R.A. talks to Cenk Uygur about "Shoot Me in The Head," a controversial song about the state of the American political system Republicans, Democrats, and news reporting. Why did he choose to spotlight Nancy Pelosi, Keith Olberman, Bill O'Reilly, Fox News, and MSNBC in the song? why does he called Joe Biden and other democrats racist?

The Young Turks - 9.19.14: Chris Christie Update, Hobby Lobby, Dancing Iranians & False Advertising

Cenk, Ben, John, and Wes Clark Jr host TYT. A report states that Chris Christie is not connected to Bridgegate. Christie says he isn’t surprised in a video. The panel responds. Even though everyone will declare that he didn’t do it, Cenk points out that they simply didn’t get someone to flip and tell on him, and that they couldn’t find the smoking gun. Ben predicts that Christie isn’t going to run in 2016. Congress is about to take another 7 week recess until after the midterm election so that they can focus solely on campaigning. Due to this constant lack of action, Cenk says that the Republicans’ plan of delaying & filibustering in order to stop Obama from doing anything has worked. NC Republican Mark Walker, running for Congress, has been recorded saying that he is open to bombing some parts of Mexico out of fear of cartels coming across the border. He also claimed he was open to starting up a little war with Mexico. An investigation into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints over child labor is hitting a wall over subpoenaing one of the church leaders based on the Hobby Lobby decision. A federal judge cited the ruling as a reason to release the leader from being questioned.

Ana joins Cenk, Ben, and Wes Clark Jr for SCS. Iran has arrested and convicted a few young people that posted an internet video of themselves dancing to Pharrell’s song, “Happy.” The group has had their sentence of 6 months in jail and 91 lashes suspended as long as they don’t get into any other trouble. Ben points out how badly the offenders were dancing. While members of the NSA were at a university on a recruiting trip, one was confronted about the Prism program while being recorded. Video of his angry responses to the line of questioning that led to him refusing to be videotaped are played. In Alabama, a school used a 14 year old girl as bait in a rape sting on a 16 year old classmate accused of constantly sexually assaulting female students. When she was sent in to bait him, the teacher authorities forgot about her and left her to be sodomized by the rapist in the bathroom. After the attack, the school ruled that it was possible she consented and that she was responsible for herself once she entered the restroom. An attorney may have her law license revoked for photoshopping herself in to pictures with big celebrities and politicians in order to be seen as a celebrity attorney. She is being charged with false advertising. Her confusing defense included a plea from President Obama for her help. Wes could hear her Russian accent in the email, and imitated it. A teenaged boy came out of the closet to his mother on camera, and was surprised at her response. She admitted to him that she had some lesbian relationships in the past. Cenk questions the authenticity of the video.

The Young Turks - 9.18.14: New ISIS Video, War Funding, Occupy Student Debt & Miley Cyrus

John Iadarola and Michael Shure host TYT. The Kansas Senate race and the new development that they’ve allowed a candidate dropout’s name to be taken off of the ballot on the Democratic side is discussed. This will eliminate wasted Democratic votes on a vacant candidate, taking them away from the replacement. ISIS has released another video that has their British reporter/hostage speaking from a desk about how Western powers should cooperate with their demands. The FBI has apparently thwarted an ISIS plan to carry out a terror plot in Australia. The House has voted to support Obama’s plan to provide training and support to Syrian rebels of the Free Syrian Army to fight ISIS. Rand Paul gives a promising speech on the matter, but it may later prove to be contradictory given his presidential aspirations.

Ana joins John for SCS. Occupy Wall Street has an initiative to reduce student loan debt. They purchased debts for thousands of students from their collectors at extreme discounts and dismissed the loans for the graduates. The story of the Django Unchained actress that got into a dispute with cops after they accused her of being a prostitute is updated. TMZ has released photos of the two engaged in a questionable embrace in broad daylight. Ana points out that even if they were having sex, she wouldn’t care, and to move on. Mexican authorities are investigating Miley Cyrus for desecrating their flag while performing at a show. While grinding with her comedically huge prosthetic ass on stage, some Mexican flags were rubbed on the butt.

The Young Turks - 9.17.14: Joe Biden Gaffe, Wage Theft, Rich Only Social Network & Dress Code Protest

Cenk hosts TYT. Joe Biden’s foot-in-mouth disease is back again. This time Biden talks about “shylocks” taking advantage of Iraq’s banking system and that Lee Kuan Yu is the “wisest man in the Orient”. Actor Kevin Sorbo says that there aren’t any movies being made about the New Testament because Jews are running Hollywood. Fast food workers continue to get the shaft. Nine in 10 fast workers have reported wage theft while the industry pays their CEO’s 1,200 times more than the typical fast food worker. Cenko Unchained: Cenk talks about the theft of fast food workers’ wages and how Republicans are introducing legislation in favor of the fast food industry and their CEOs.

Cenk and Ana host SCS. Rich people are joining a social networking site called “Netropolitan” and are paying $9,000 dollars to be a part of this online country club. The Kenyan government is offering a free trip back to Kenya to the family of a 15 year old girl who was mistaken for the terrorist known as the “White Widow”. The Co-founder of OKCupid has published a book informing that women over 20 are no longer desirable to men. Students at Tottenville High School in Staten Island, NY are rebelling against the dress code in order to beat the hot weather. Claims of the dress code being sexist have also been risen.

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.

Cenk hosting. Rep.John Bennett of Oklahoma put up a Facebook post with the premise that Muslum Americans will kill infidels in Oklahoma according, by definition from the Koran. Chris Heben,a former Navy Seal, claims of being shot by black men were proven false by police.  Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense are running ads on what is proper in branding a gun at supermarkets. Henry Lee McCollum and Leon Brown have been exonerated of rape and murder after more than 30 years behind bars in North Carolina. Supreme Court Justice Antonin used McCollum as an example of why the death penalty is just.

Ana & Cenk hosting. Pat Robertson gives advice to an 80 year old woman on the ways of making money from having a lack of money. Advertising Standards Authority in the UK have banned recent American Apparel ad, showing a model dressed like a schoolgirl showing only an upskirt shot. Police officers in the UK are asking citizens to conduct their own investigations, like getting fingerprints, when certain crimes are committed like stolen property.

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. YouTuber PewDiePie releases a video in reaction to hateful comments on his channel and has disabled his comment section. Cenk and Ana discuss TYT’s comment section.

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.
