The Young Turks - FREE (Audio)

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.

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.

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.
