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.
