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.

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.

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.

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!
