Hour 1: Cenk hosting today. Benjamin Netanyahu won re election for Prime Minister in convincing fashion. Some rhetoric from Bibi during the homestretch of the election warned of the large number of Arab Israelis heading to the polls. He also made it clear that he has no intention of taking part in a 2 state solution, unlike his previous promises of ending the occupation. Cenk talks about the implications of Netanyahu’s win and his declarations to never work toward peace with the Palestinians and Arab population. With this promise, the possibility of the boycott Israel movement becomes more of a reality in the future. Cenk talks about how this may force the rest of the world to come down harder on Israel and potentially sway them towards a peaceful approach.

The Young Turks - 3.11.15: The Angel Of Death, Pope Francis, Obama, Jon Stewart, Morning Joe & Man Taunts Cops

Cenk hosting today. A solo fighter in Iraq that has been dubbed The Angel of Death is a solo killer that is fighting ISIS. He has become an Iraqi hero after pictures of him have been circulating on the internet of him wielding axes, swords, and big machine guns. Since he’s “our bad guy” he gets praise. Since Utah continues to have troubles with their lethal injection procedure for capital punishment, the firing squad is being proposed to be brought back. Cenk compares the brutality of this system to the guillotine & beheadings by terrorists. Pope Francis spoke about elections and claims that there should be free and fair elections not influenced by outside money. In an interview with a magazine, Jon Stewart went after President Obama’s lack of effort vs his promises for change.

The Morning Joe panel addressed one aspect of the viral racist video out of OU after rapper Waka Flocka changed his mind about going to perform there.

The Young Turks - 3.10.15: Tom Cotton’s Letter To Iran, Racist Frat & Unarmed Man Shot

Cenk and Ana. After 47 Republican Senators sent an undermining letter to Iran about the negotiations process, the criticism came down hard from the President to fellow Republicans to pundits. Video of Obama calling the move ironic. Joe Biden wrote a scathing response to the move, as well. Republican Bob Corker disagreed with this move because he wanted to undermine it in an official way, not by sending rouge letters to Iran. Freshman Sen Tom Cotton went on MSNBC to double down on his position to send a letter to Iranian leaders. Coincidentally, Tom Cotton is set to appear at a conference put on by lobbyists for defense contractors, contractors that have a lot of money to make on another war in the Middle East. Cotton also promoted the idea of striking Iran’s nuclear facilities because Israel did it to Iraq and Syria. Video of Cotton claiming that the only deal he is willing to accept from Iran is complete disarmament, and the threat of war needs to be on the table.

The Young Turks - 3.9.15: Ebay, Netanyahu, Iran, Rape, Racist Frat & Teen Killed

Cenk hosting. He goes off about how Ebay invalidated the sale of his Grand Am at $50K. As peace negotiations continue with Iran and the WH, the Republican led Congress is looking to torpedo the agreement in another way since Netanyahu spoke in America. 47 Senators have sent a scathing letter to the leaders of Iran to let them know that if they don’t ratify the WH agreement, it isn’t binding, hinting that they will not honor it and do what they want. This is another strategy to undermine the authority of the President in favor of a foreign leader. Several former Senators have formed a group called American Security Initiative that created an ad that depicts an American city being blown up by a nuclear bomb unless we oppose a deal with Iran. Video of the fear mongering ad.

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. A wrongfully convicted man has been awarded millions of dollars after he spent over 20 years in prison, where he was raped and given HIV.

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. India has banned a documentary that exposes the details behind the brutal New Delhi rape and murder that happened last year. One of the rapists that was interviewed said some hideous things, so the country’s officials nixed it so that he wouldn’t have a platform to spew his vitriol. Ana & Cenk don’t agree with the decision. An American man that works for a company in the UAE complained via Facebook about his employer while spending time back at home in Florida. Upon his return to UAE, he was immediately arrested for slandering his employer, which is against the law. He could face up to 5 years in prison.

The Young Turks - 3.4.15: Ben Carson, Chris Matthews, Sex Toys & Dating

Cenk and Iadarola hosting. Ben Carson discussed same sex marriage with Chris Cuomo on CNN, claiming that its nothing like Civil Rights because people choose to be gay. Proof of this is that ex prisoners come out gay. Cenk’s unique take is that Carson isn’t entirely wrong because of the sexuality spectrum. After Netanyahu’s speech to Congress yesterday, Chris Matthews pointed out that its the only time a foreign leader came in to take foreign policy power away from President Obama, with the help of Republicans.

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Sex toys that connect to apps have the potential to get hacked by outside forces. Cenk wonders what people would do to someone’s dildo if they gained control.

Questions of whether Putin and the Kremlin are behind it are being thrown around. Both Cenk and Desi talk about why its obvious that Putin was behind it. A Russian TV anchor is already toeing the government line that accusations are nothing but conspiracy theories by the West, who are probably the actual culprits.

Bill O’Reilly has been caught in yet another lie that he has been telling over the years that prop him up as an amazing guy. Videos of Bill telling people about witnessing nuns being gunned down in El Salvador while he was there covering wars. Video of O’Reilly telling the same story accurately, acknowledging that he arrived to El Salvador after the nuns were killed. He also wrote in his book that he got there after the nuns were murdered. Fox News has come out in even more defense of old Bill. Cenk points out that Bill and FNC haven’t responded to the JFK lie and the nuns lie since they can’t spin it to blame others for attacking him.

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. A study that was conducted on rising sea levels as a result of climate change showed that sea levels on the northeast coast of the country have risen at extremely dramatic levels. Abercrombie & Fitch case is going to the SCOTUS over refusing to hire a girl that wears a hijab due to it violating their apparel requirements for particular styles.

Cenk hosting today. Despite Elizabeth Warren’s declarations that she isn’t going to run for President against Hillary Clinton, she gave a very lukewarm answer to Clinton’s liberal credentials with Al Sharpton. This makes Cenk wonder why she would take this approach if it isn’t to set up a run against Hillary. On CPAC’s list of speakers at their annual convention, Dr. Ben Carson’s bio had a picture of Sen Tim Scott instead of Carson. CPAC responded to the Washington Post reporter’s tweet about it by claiming he photoshopped the image to embarrass CPAC. One of the editors at Ben Howe came out in favor of CPAC’s claim of a photoshopping scheme. Bill O’Reilly has been caught in yet another lie. This time the fabrications are about his assertions that he chased down an accomplice to the assassination of JFK right before he committed suicide. Bill made it sound like the man shot himself because he was hot on his trail. Other reporters that worked with O’Reilly at the time have come forward to point out that he wasn’t even in the same city when the suicide occurred.

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Kanye West recalled a story about Kim Kardashian’s father getting racist taunts after being on OJ Simpson’s defense team. Due to the vandalism, he told Kim that one day she may have a Black child that she will have to be ready to put up with the racism. Cenk thinks Kanye is embellishing parts of the story. Cenk thinks West getting an award for having a clothing and shoe line is ridiculous, and that one day he will prove it by having one himself. Ana disagrees with Cenk’s choice of t-shirt with blazer look. TYT audience poll on whether or not Cenk’s style is acceptable or not. Keith Olbermann has been suspended by ESPN for 1 week after he got into a heated Twitter fight with multiple Penn St students over their defense of their school when he bashed them.

O’Reilly’s stories of San Salvador being burned to the ground with fighting going on around him were also debunked by Bill’s own report from 1982. He is responding to the outrage with defiance, by pointing out that he’d be cleared and putting the Mother Jones reporter David Corn in the “Kill Zone.” Cenk predicts that O’Reilly pitting this as one side vs the other will cause people to think its just one man’s word against his.

Cenk compares the number of ISIS members are in comparison to the population of Iraq, to the number of Klansmen in comparison to the population of America when they were at their height. Rudy Giuliani told a Conservative group that President Obama doesn’t love America, or its citizens. That he was brought up differently than they rest of the people in the room. When Scott Walker was asked about the controversial comments, he dodged the question twice. President Obama explained why he chooses to not call terrorists Islamic terrorists. Although Cenk disagrees with this thought process, he understands why he took this narrative. Videos of Donald Rumsfeld comparing ISIS terrorists to German agitators of WWII.

Ramesh Srinivasan is an Associate Professor at the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies and Design/Media Arts at UCLA. He studies the relationship between media, specifically new technologies, and social, political and cultural realities across the world.

In his first return to the TYT studio, Professor Srinivasan and The Young Turks' in-house Bolivia-phile Dave Koller cover a wide range of topics, including:

- Whether the world needs more or fewer books by Malcolm Gladwell
- Why a social media expert like Srinivasan shuns Twitter
- How Bolivian president Evo Morales is pushing technological change to empower indigenous communities in Bolivia
- Why people in the West feel a false sense of confidence in social media to foment revolution against authoritarian regimes
- Why a member of a young hacker community in Bolivia greeted Srinivasan in a giant Linux penguin costume
- What the people who live in and around landfills in the developing world can teach the West about repurposing old technology

The Young Turks - 2.11.15: Triple Murder, Debbie Schlussel, Valentine's Day & Chocolate Molds

Cenk hosts TYT. A triple murder in North Carolina is making news, where a young husband, wife, and sister were killed. The murderer is being analyzed for motives. It has been discovered he’s an anti-theist, hating all religions. He is also a gun enthusiast and hater of gun control. Although some are speculated that the killing was over a parking dispute he had with the victims, the father believes it was based on their Muslim background. Cenk thinks its not as simple as a parking dispute. After news of a young American woman was killed by ISIS when they captured her while doing humanitarian work, some Conservatives and Debbie Schlussel called her anti-Israel and a bitch due to her work with Palestinians. Video of Debbie Schlussel’s old video that TYT made fun of.

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. With the cost of 18.9 billion dollars being spent on Valentines Day, Ana reveals the violent origins of Valentines Day. More Valentines Day stories, from the company of Edible Anus, which makes chocolate anuses, by making a mold from the anus.

The Young Turks - 2.10.15: Zimbabwe, Sean Hannity, Ohio G-Spot Gyno & Global Sex Ring

Cenk hosts TYT. The dictator of Zimbabwe tripped last week and the image of it suddenly turned into a hilarious internet meme. Since he has no patience for jokes targeting him, he fired 27 security aides over it. Fox News continues to freak out about Obama’s speech pointing out the violence that has been carried out by Christianity in the past. Videos of Sean Hannity’s guest Star Parker calling it ‘verbal rape.’ Video mashup of Conservatives committing “verbal rape” on Muslim believers with their harsh words. A Saudi Arabian historian claimed that since they don’t allow their women to drive and Westerners do, they care more about whether or not their women get raped. Fox News addressed the rise of unbelievers with their own historian that claimed there is more evidence of Bible stories than Atheists could imagine. Since reports of botched executions are being reported more, Oklahoma is considering bringing back the gas chamber.

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. A gynecologist lost his license after he helped 2 women discover their G-spot. One patient came back to have him help her orgasm the 2nd time, and eventually met her for sex at the hospital. Ana asks if an OBGYN should be fired if a doctor only stimulates a woman’s G-spot if she asks him to locate it for her. The former head of the International Monetary Fund is facing more charges from his participation in a global sex ring. Researchers correlated the way women walk with how easily they can attain an orgasm.

The Young Turks - 2.9.15: Obama, Fundamentalists, Christians, Kanye West, Alcohol & Dominatrix

Cenk hosting today. After Pres Obama spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast about all religions having killers that did it in the name of their God, Conservatives lost their minds. Video of Obama’s original remarks. Video compilation of pundits calling the point ridiculous and stupid. Eric Bolling also took on the subject in claiming that the number of violent killings from Christians totals zero. Cenk details the many horrific instances of murder and violence carried out by Christians. Tucker Carlson, Mike Huckabee, and EW Jackson also claimed that Christians delivered Black people from slavery and Jim Crow. Pictures of the KKK openly and obviously doing their hateful acts in church and in front of burning crosses. Cenk also reads some verses from the Bible that preach obtaining and keeping slaves.

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Kanye West has ruffled feathers again after the Grammy Awards last night when Beck beat Beyonce for album of the year. When Beck hit the stage to accept the award, Kanye acted like he would interrupt like he did to Taylor Swift. During an interview afterwards, Kanye voiced his opinion about how Beck should give his award to Beyonce. Bruce Jenner was involved in a major car accident that killed a woman. The cause of the accident is still being investigated. A robot that can have AI uploaded into it has been created. The potential uses of the robot would be to virtually clone oneself in robot form. Cenk and Ana talk about the potential problems with it, Ana worries that her man will leave her for her clone.

The military has decided to reclassify alcohol as a weapon since there are a significant number of cases where people are drugged with drinks before being sexually assaulted. Cenk is generally opposed to this rule, as its unnecessary and potentially confusing since so many people drink voluntarily before being assaulted. A Canadian woman won a $1.5 million lawsuit after a car accident damaged a part of her brain, turning her into a sex crazed dominatrix. TYT Supreme Court rules 3-1 in favor of the woman. A Detroit woman has been arrested of killing her friend with a slow cooker over a political argument.

Pastor James David Manning of ATLAH World Missionary Church has gone back and forth with Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, and The Young Turks, and today they attempt to set the record straight. What did Pastor Manning mean when he said he wanted to stone gay men and wants Harlem to be a homo-free zone? Could Starbucks really be mixing "gay semen" into coffee because of the delicious taste? Is Manning himself tempted by homosexuality, which he describes as a choice? And what about his statements criticizing black male celebrities and speakers? Manning also addresses his statements that President Obama is neither black nor the president, and that he had also shot the mother his alleged love child outside the White House. Can an unaccredited university discredit a school with accreditation? Can it discredit the state of New York?

Cenk and Ana also ask Manning straight on about his previous derogatory comments on Cenk's race as well as Ana's higher education and the indisputable fact that she is a woman.

Find out Pastor Manning's answers to all the above questions and much, much more in this fascinating installment of TYT Interviews

The Young Turks - 2.5.15: Brian Williams, Boko Haram, Obama Religion Speech & Education

John, Rubin, and Michael Shure hosting. NBC’s Brian Williams is under fire for revelations that he has been lying about the helicopter crash he was involved in while reporting on the Iraq War in 2003. Videos of him telling the story to David Letterman and Alec Baldwin on separate occasions over the years. Michael defended Williams mis-remembering the story. Rubin partially blames him for getting these details incorrect. The panel doesn’t see any shady reason he’d do this on purpose or push an agenda. Boko Haram fighters have attacked citizens in Cameroon, killing more. Several African nations have banded together to counter the terrorist organization’s murders. President Obama spoke to a Prayer Breakfast about the extremism of groups posing as religious groups, including some Christian ones. Rubin is over Obama and his dry, empty speeches.

Hannah Cranston replaces Shure for SCS for the 1st time. A new study illustrates the college graduation gap between wealthy students and lower-income students. A Florida man claims to have had a sexual relationship with a dolphin because it seduced him. The Florida Supreme Court has to decided whether or not gay sex is considered intercourse since an HIV Positive man had sex with another man without telling him. When the newly infected man looked to press charges, the state has to decide if its a legitimate sexual act to be prosecuted as intercourse.

The panel answers the question which is important in their life, water or the internet. A follow up on the Jordanian pilot being executed by ISIS, with Fox News showing portions of the execution video, along with a renewed retaliation from Jordan.

John, David Rubin, and Jimmy host TYT. ISIS continues to get more barbaric with their executions of prisoners as they’ve released a video of a Jordanian pilot being burned alive. TYT has decided to not show any videos or pictures of the murder. Jimmy talks about what ISIS may be trying to achieve in doing this. Jordan has promised to get revenge, ramping up the violence. Talk about what the U.S. is supposed to do about this. The disagreement over children’s measles vaccinations continues after Chris Christie started the political debate. Videos of the CDC Director warning of the public dangers of avoiding vaccinations. The division of politicians on this subject doesn’t simply fall along political party lines, Video of Obama advocating vaccinations. Rubin and Jimmy want Obama to say it with authority. Megyn Kelly & BIll O’Reilly also believe in mandatory vaccines. Videos of some politicians that are not buying the fact that vaccines are important and necessary. Rep Sean Duffy, wants parents to make the call, as some don’t fit with some Americans’ values. John outlines Christie’s back and forth comments on this subject. Video of Rand Paul equating the parental decision to vaccinate to freedom. Paul also claimed that vaccines can cause mental disorders in kids.

Same panel for SCS. Actor Randy Quaid posted an odd video featuring himself and his wife complaining about their troubles, eventually putting a Rupert Murdoch mask on his wife and simulating anal sex with “Rupert Murdoch.” Florida Republicans are targeting singer Pitbull as a Jeb Bush supporter to get more votes. Buzzfeed took a bunch of “Foodies” to a ranch to make them kill their chicken so that they find out if they’re ok with eating meat. Buzzfeed is getting blowback for this theme, including their articles on how to cook chicken. Jimmy admits that if he had to kill his own meat, he would be a vegetarian. Jimmy talks about the cowardice of hunters shooting animals for sport.

Iceland is building a shrine to Norse Gods, the 1st one since the Vikings era. A South African man was attacked with acid by his girlfriend after she found out he taped them having sex, which ended up on the internet. He claims that he doesn’t know how it ended up on the internet. The acid burned his penis off. 100 Japanese women were drugged and sexually abused by a man that advertised a clinical research project.

The Young Turks - 2.2.15: Porn-Again Christian, Gun Control, Student Suspended, W. Kamau Bell & Million Dollar Divorce

Cenk hosting. A born again Christian that describes himself as an anti porn crusader that offers to speak to church groups and their kids. The only problem is that he has been arrested 2 times since December for multiple counts of sexual abuse of minors. Stacey Dash has continued her stream of ridiculousness on Fox News by blaming raped college girls for not being “good girls.” Video of her claiming that the bad girls put themselves in bad situations when they go out, play, get drunk, and overdrink. Video of Andrea Tantaros adding onto the horrible argument by feeling bad for college guys being convicted before they do anything. America’s gun deaths are 10 per 100K people, compared to the UK; 0.23 per 100K. A study showed that the states with higher gun ownership and relaxed gun control results in higher gun deaths.

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. A 4th grade Texas student was suspended for making terrorist threats for claiming he has the magic ring from Lord of the Rings, and would use it to make his friend disappear. He was suspended in the past for calling another classmate Black, and for bringing a picture of a pregnant woman to school. Comedian and talk show host, W. Kamau Bell was mistaken for a panhandler in Berkeley, CA while talking to his White wife and White girlfriends on the outdoor patio of a cafe they were eating at. A billionaire is going through a divorce, and the soon to be ex wife is asking for $1 million/month in the settlement. Outraged, he listed all of the needless lavish spending she wants to continue to have to show how much she doesn’t need that kind of cash. Cenk is annoyed by the term, “The lifestyle I’ve become accustomed to” for extremely rich people.

The Young Turks - 1.30.15: Crying Republican, Gay Rights, NYTimes, Suge Knight & Belle Knox

Cenk, John, Jimmy, and Brian Unger hosting. An Idaho bill designed to discriminate against the LGBT community has been voted down, sparking a heartfelt speech from a Republican on the committee that was previously against gay rights. After nearly crying over his newfound compassion, he declared that he will still vote against their rights. The army found itself in the middle of a PR nightmare when they tweeted a message about “chinks in the armor of technology” causing them to immediately take it down. Cenk thinks that although the term, chinks in armor has nothing to do with an Asian slur, it still makes people’s mind go there, similar to niggardly.

Ana replaces John for SCS. A NYT editor responded to criticism of the mainstream media and admitted that they totally dropped the ball on reporting the real news after 9-11, not being aggressive enough in asking questions about going into the Iraq War. Suge Knight has turned himself in after running over two people while trying to leave the set of a movie. One of the victims died of his injuries. Former Duke student, turned porn actress Belle Knox is planning on starting up a political career as a Conservative, formulating her stances behind Ayn Rand.

The Young Turks - 1.29.15: Sarah Palin vs. O'Reilly, Comcast, Code Pink & Cliven Bundy

Cenk hosting. The Sarah Palin/Bill O’Reilly catfight continues. After Bill teased her running for president as a reality show, she bashed him as a quasi right winger. He responded by calling out her being on a reality show and said she shouldn’t get offended when no offense was intended. Another Conservative catfight is between Huckabee and Megyn Kelly after he lamented the cursing that he experienced in NYC from trashy women. After she gave Huckabee a pass for the entire segment, she did point out that women are drinking, smoking, and having premarital sex. A 3rd catfight sparked up between CNN’s morning shows and Morning Joe of MSNBC. CNN took out a full page NYT ad that brags about both of their morning shows beating Morning Joe for many consecutive months. Cenk brags about TYT’s numbers in comparison to both networks. Code Pink protested a Senate Hearing with Henry Kissinger and John McCain, demanding for Kissinger to be arrested for war crimes. Video of the protest, and McCain calling them lowlife scum before ‘profusely’ apologizing to Kissinger. Cliven Bundy’s son has been arrested after the police caught up with him on an outstanding warrant. He was arrested after verbally and physically resisting the police.

Comcast’s plan to boost its character with the public includes making paid off politicians write glowing pre-written letters to the FCC about the company’s planned merger with Time Warner. Cenk explains how this scam is formulated to get the corporation what it wants right in front of the American people. Cenk predicts that these companies desire to control the internet via Net Neutrality won’t work. He explains that the internet will be regulated like public utilities, which aren’t subject to donations to grease the wheels. Cenk thinks that the deciding factor in favor of Net Neutrality is the number of huge investors from Silicon Valley that have money invested in internet development, so they know who’s actually in favor of equal access; not the Republicans.

The Young Turks - 1.29.15: Palin, Hannity, Huckabee, Bad Cop, Michelle Obama & Facebook

Cenk and John hosting, the “Turkish Pie” hour. Now that Palin has shown her ass even more with her disjointed speech in Iowa, even Conservatives like Bill O’Reilly went after her with a teaser making fun of her potentially running for President as a reality show. Video of Palin responding by calling Fox News a quasi right wing network. Video of Sean Hannity tepidly asking Palin if her teleprompter went out at her horribly delivered Iowa speech. After pushing back at the media for asking such questions, Hannity surrendered and claimed to not be a part of that bunch. Video of Hannity losing his mind over Obama’s teleprompters. Cenk brings up how lost President Bush was without his teleprompter. The American Sniper bickering has reached Howard Dean after he called the movie-goers angry and Tea Party types. After he was criticized for these thoughts, he came back with an apology for offending the military, but not the rabid Right Wingers on Twitter coming for him. Mike Huckabee continues to push a folksy character as he begins his run for President. Video of Huckabee claiming that guns weren’t in schools when Bibles were there.  John points out that in churches, where there are tons of Bibles and praying, violence in churches are on the rise. Video of Huckabee claiming that as we get away from the Bible and the objective word of truth, the worse off we are as a society.

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Update on the police officer that was busted for stealing risque pictures of a female DUI driver. He has been convicted and sentenced to probation and community service. When President Obama and the First Lady went to Saudi Arabia for King Abdullah’s funeral, Michelle was seen not wearing the headdress and robe that they hand out for women to wear. After FB’s Mark Zuckerberg wrote in favor of freedom of speech after the Charlie Hebdo attack, especially on Facebook, he has caved to pressure from Turkey that told him to censor anyone posting images of Muhammad.

The Young Turks - 1.22.15: Senate on Climate Change, Joni Ernst, Mitt Romney vs. Huckabee & Marijuana News

Ben, Ana, and Iadarola hosting. The Senate passed an amendment to the Keystone Pipeline bill that declared climate change is not a hoax. Only one Senator voted against it. Sen Jim Inhofe voted in favor of this amendment, but took to the Senate floor later in the day to call climate change a hoax. BP tweeted that climate change is indeed real, but it has been taken down. Additionally, Mitt Romney admitted that he’s one of those Republicans that believes climate change is real. GOP Senators overwhelmingly rejected amendments that used the term “significantly” when describing human contributions to climate change. Ben points out that Romney and Jeb Bush met this week, possibly to talk about their separate plans to run for president. After Joni Ernst responded to the SOTU address with a poor upbringing story, it has been discovered that her family received nearly $500K in farm subsidies. She also debated that she is against subsidies while campaigning. Video of Mitt Romney’s ad that targeted Mike Huckabee with a Willie Horton-style message, that he never ran in the 2008 campaign. Ben talks about the horrible details of the serial rapist Huckabee released in Arkansas.

Facebook looks to combat scam stories and inaccurate news stories that mislead many users. The reporting of false news stories would be reported by other users, and after enough users have reported a story as fake, it would be eliminated. The potential problem with this new policy is that disagreeable users will just flag a story that is against their views, but not fake or misleading. As marijuana gets discussed more for legalization, the question of whether or not it can be considered a performance enhancing drug, as it helps some people focus and lower anxiety. Jamaica is considering decriminalizing marijuana.

The Young Turks - 1.21.15: SOTU Wrap Up, Obama, Police Shooting & Woman Ambushes Cops

Iadarola, Rubin, Jimmy, and RJ hosting. Talk about some of the larger issues that the president failed to mention at the SOTU Address last night. One was the success of ObamaCare. Talk about gay marriage and police brutality on undeserving citizens. Video of the zinger Obama snapped on condescending Republicans during the SOTU last night. When the GOP applauded his point about not running anymore campaigns, he responded by saying, “I know because I won both of them.” After the much talked about response, crybaby republicans complained that his tone won’t help him in working together. The GOP response to the SOTU was done by Joni Ernst, where she robotically went hokey in talking about her humble farming background, mentioning bread bags on her shoes.

Ana and Rubin for SCS. Video shows NJ police shooting and killing an unarmed Black man on a routine stop. Video has surfaced of a Massachusetts woman throwing bacon and sausage through the police dept window at officers. She later said she was told by God to “feed the pigs.” A federal law overturned the rule that prohibits flipping off police officers.

The Young Turks - 1.20.15: Michael Moore Tweets, Fox News Apology, Fake Doc & Government Spying

Ben, John, and Desi Doyen host TYT. Michael Moore has caused an uproar after tweeting and Facebooking about snipers, insinuating that they are cowards. Ben talks about the negative response he got after reviewing the movie American Sniper. Seth Rogen tweeted about how the movie resembles the film inside the film Inglorious Basterds. He was also condemned for comparing the sniper movie to one about a Nazi sniper. Talk about the things Chris Kyle openly said that illustrated negative parts of his character. After Fox News was flooded with ridicule for their “No Go Zones” talking points, they were forced to finally apologize for the false narrative. Video of Julie Banderas issuing one of the four apologies over the weekend. Ben thinks that the apology was well done. Despite the apology, the city of Paris is planning to sue Fox News Channel. Video of Bobby Jindal continuing to push the false narrative, but getting challenged by the CNN reporter in England.

Ana replaces John for SCS. A 17 year old kid posed as a doctor at a Florida hospital for months before being discovered. Other doctors and hospital personnel noticed he was young, but didn’t say anything. A 5 year old kid was given a bill from his friend’s mother after he RSVPed to their birthday party, but couldn’t come due to being double booked. Ana talks about party etiquette. David Cameron is catching heat for trying to force social media and app companies to allow a backdoor access point for the government to spy on users. President Obama has come out in favor of this move, to monitor bad guys that use the services for wrongdoing.

The Young Turks - 1.19.15: SOTU, Fox News, MLK Day, Middle Class Racism & Lone Star Hate

Johnny Pie & Ben “The Tank” Mankiewicz host TYT. President Obama will be proposing new tax reform policy and will be presenting it at tomorrow’s SOTU address. Fox News and Friends react to the proposal saying that President Obama is playing with politics and it is designed to enrage Republicans. Eric Holder has made a big move in “civil asset forfeiture” by limiting some of the amount of assets that the government can seize during a crime. In honor of MLK day, John and Ben read and take note of quotes by Martin Luther King. John has a slight disagreement with one of the quotes about religion and science.

Ben and Ana host the SCS “Banana Hour”. A new study from the Pew Research Center reveals that African Americans who were raised in middle class families find out that their income drops upon leaving home and have difficulty maintaining the same income when growing up. In Oklahoma, Police Chief Lewis Ross was shot by Dallas Horton for wrongfully raiding his home. There were claims of racism as Dallas, a white man, was not charged with the shooting. Police Chief Lewis Ross is an African American. A group of 500 moderate Muslims gathered in Texas to speak out against extremists in the Muslim community, but was met with protesters who were against the gathering of the moderate Muslims.

The Young Turks - 1.16.15: Duke Muslim Prayer, The Great Wall of Saudi, Christian Child Author & Marijuana

Cenk, Iadarola, Jimmy, and Maz Jobrani host the Power Panel. Maz talks about difficulty people had in pronouncing his name. Talks about trouble he had with convincing the old wrestler The Iron Sheik to act like he was pissed. After Duke University decided to allow a Muslim call to prayer every day on campus, it has been nixed due to Christian outcry led by Franklin Graham. Cenk points out how this kind of overall blame and disdain for Muslims is similar to what went on in Nazi Germany. Discussion about misrepresentation and misunderstanding of everyday Muslims. Saudi Arabia is building a huge wall to fend off potential ISIS militants from crossing over from their Iraqi border.

Ana replaces John for SCS stories. One kid that wrote a book about his story of dying and visiting Heaven has admitted that he made the whole thing up. Although recreational marijuana is legal in Washington state, dispensaries are lobbying for the same regulations to be placed on medicinal dispensaries, as their prices are lower due to a lack of rules being placed on them. A company that sends people’s enemies glitter bombs has started turning down requests due to so much demand after it caught on.

After Fox’s terrorism analyst Steve Emerson caught hell for claiming that Birmingham England is ‘totally Muslim’ he was worried that his job is at stake and told the BBC about it. In reality, Fox News has been going crazy with the talking point of “No Go Zones.” Video of Hasselbeck talking with another expert about the no go zones, comparing them to breeding grounds like Afghanistan after 9-11. Video compilation of Fox News characters reiterating the term over and over since the attack. A guns group called The Truth About Guns conducted several simulations to find out what could’ve happened if the Charlie Hebdo offices had a gunman inside to respond to the attackers. They found that in every scene, the victims would’ve still died. After France’s Unity Rally in response to the terrorist attacks, the French government has arrested 54 people, including one well-known comedian for being anti-Semitic or “apologists for terrorists.”

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Update on the students that were assaulted by police after Ohio State won the national championship. Ana points out that there were many more fires and instances of violence being initiated by rowdy students. The reason they pepper sprayed the celebrating kids was because the fire trucks couldn’t get through to tend to the fires. Cenk and Ana argue, causing Cenk to ask for a poll from the TYT audience to decide. Videos of Nancy Grace arguing with rapper 2 Chainz about the legalization of marijuana. Ana believes that Nancy Grace is dangerous. NASCAR driver Kurt Busch is fighting a restraining order that has been placed against him by his ex girlfriend. He claims that the woman is a trained assassin, so he can’t hurt her the way she claimed.
