Hour 1: Power Panel with Cenk, Jimmy, Ben and Jimmy Dore. Marco Rubio told Fox’s Outnumbered that he is not in favor of nation building, but is in favor of building nations. Video of his confusing points. Glenn Beck continues to lose his mind. Video of Beck talking about the Black Robe Regiment of ministers that are willing to walk into sure death to serve God over man. A new EPA report claims that fracking doesn’t pose a massive risk to our drinking water. The operative word is “massive” as it admitted that it does contaminate water, but it hasn’t affected widespread amounts of water in the nation. Cenk is torn, and doesn’t know if he should trust the EPA, while Jimmy isn’t confused at all, that this report is flawed since the fracking companies didn’t cooperate. Louie Gohmert complained about President Obama’s handling of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict by quoting some radical leaders’ comments about wiping Israel off the map. Video of Gohmert accusing Obama of being an accessory to terrorism.

Hour 2: Ana replaces John for SCS. An opponent of Caitlyn Jenner disputed her courage by comparing her to men with real courage, soldiers. He posted a picture of a couple of soldiers in battle to illustrate, but didn’t realize that it was a sculpture created by an artist that has endured ridicule and near death beatings for cross dressing as a woman. A researcher has discovered that financial dependence affects whether or not someone cheats. In every variable, men are more likely to cheat when they are more dependent, and when they are the breadwinner. A California Geometry teacher is under fire for asking his students to take a selfie with their parents’ sex toys for extra credit. After one student pulled off the feat, the teacher shared it with the class. Cenk and Ben wouldn’t fire this teacher, while Jimmy and Ana would fire him immediately.

Hour 1: Cenk and Ana hosting. Nature Box plug. A study showed which career fields tend to be full of Republicans vs Democrats. Ted Cruz was speaking to a supportive crowd at a campaign stop and made a few jokes about VP Biden. Videos of his jokes, and him walking away from a reporter that asked him why he chose to target Biden during his time of grieving over his son’s death. Cenk gives him the benefit of the doubt that he possibly forgot the horrible news about his son until he saw him walk away from the question. The anti-choice legislation that Scott Walker is planning on signing includes language that would allow the father of the baby to sue the doctor for “emotional distress.” This comes right after Walker claimed women that are raped get over it in the 1st couple of months of the pregnancy, so its ok to force them to carry out the pregnancy.

Hour 2: Meundies plug. Video of Tara Lynn Belcher from South Carolina loses her nerve against a customer by calling him the “N” word because she says she’s “an angry bitch”. Video from AJPlus goes into exploring the definition of “terrorism”. Comedian Amy Schumer recently received the trailblazer from Glamour magazine with an acceptance speech from Amy, claiming in receiving “a lot of dicks”.

Hour 1: Cenk and John hosting. The revised Patriot Act has been passed with a few less mass data collection techniques. Cenk has more hope in these reforms than John does. President Obama spoke to a group at the White House about how the United States is once again the most respected country in the world, when we dropped behind China and Russia while Bush was on office. Videos of Fox News’ Outnumbered panel including actor Paul Sorvino disputing the fact that the country is respected. After Pope Francis has announced he will put out an encyclical about climate change, Rick Santorum told a radio show that the Church should leave science to the scientists since they’re wrong on this. Scott Walker responded to the critics of his anti-abortion bill that wouldn’t protect victims of rape or incest by claiming they only worry about it during the 1st couple of months. Video.

Hour 2: Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Preview of Megyn Kelly’s interview with the Duggars, where they are clearly out to do damage control and have their victim daughters say everything is ok. Kelly already said she will not ask them any tough questions. An Atlanta man went to the airport and carried an AR-15 with a 100 round drum to drop his daughter off for a flight. He knew it was legal to walk through the unsecured areas, where he was only asked questions by a few law enforcement officials. He was offended he was even asked about his gun and permit. Cenk imagines what the scene would be if a Muslim did the same thing. A Black family in Mississippi was arrested and cited a week after their child graduated from high school for celebrating as her name was called the ceremony. They were also kicked out of the event when it happened.

Cenk hosting today on the 1st National Gun Violence Awareness Day. Rush Limbaugh went after Sec of St John Kerry for riding a bicycle, falling, and breaking his leg. Videos of Limbaugh claiming that Kerry is too old, is just doing it for a photo op, and that other distinguished Republican Sec of State would never ride bikes. Pictures of the most beloved Republicans upon bikes. Video of Limbaugh railing on “exercise freaks” that hurt themselves all the time and burden the Healthcare system. Glenn Beck and his crew disputed the fact that global warming caused the drought and flooding in Texas, right before claiming that it was because of Rick Perry’s prayer and fasting in Idaho that the drought ended. Cenk remembers that Glenn Beck is really losing his mind, video of him claiming that his time of calling is coming, where giants will be made. Sepp Blatter has resigned as head of FIFA, just days after his reelection.

An 18 year old Black man was shot and killed by police at a WalMart. Authorities claimed he was shoplifting without proof, and threatened to arrest his mother when she asked what was going on. The officer that killed the man has a history of killing unarmed citizens, posting Nazi imagery online, and one of his supervisors warned that the officer is dangerous and likely to cause more harm. Findings show that cops are responsible for 1 in every 13 gun deaths, and that the rate is rising. One third of the time a Black citizen is killed by cops, they are unarmed, and two thirds are all minorities. The crime of manspreading on NYC subways that was created to allow more space for subway riders has been applied to harass and arrest primarily Black and Latino riders. 94% of the people detained via this law were minorities.

Hour 1: Cenk hosting today. Bernie Sanders is attracting big crowds in Iowa, to the surprise of the Establishment. Cenk talks about the political thought process the media took this to mean when real world Americans don’t operate that way. Jeb Bush told Bob Schieffer that he supports raising retirement age to 68-70 so that Social Security is sustainable. Cenko Unchained on Jeb’s comments that describe SS recipients as entitled when he’s the most entitled person in the nation right now. VP Biden’s son, Beau Biden died of brain cancer over the weekend.

Videos of Biden speaking to a group of army families in 2012 that have lost someone in the military, relaying his experiences and pain.

Hour 2: Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Bruce Jenner is now Caitlyn Jenner and appeared in her new body on the cover of Vanity Fair. Cenk details why he’s conflicted on this story. He dislikes that this is leading to a new reality show on E! Tracy Morgan appeared on the Today Show to talk about his extremely devastating car accident that killed his friend, and nearly killed him. Cenk talks about the likely scenario in the settlement process that would have Morgan speak highly of their reaction to the accident. A Muslim woman was denied an unopened can of Coke on a United airlines flight, because they claimed policy won’t allow it since it could be used as a weapon. When she noticed that her neighboring passenger was given a closed can of beer, she asked others if its unfair, only to be berated with a racial tirade.
