  • L.A. County race to replace Katie Hill in Congress appears headed to a runoff (Young Turks' Cenk Uygur gets squished)

    03/04/2020 1:55:40 AM PST · by Libloather · 21 replies
    Democratic Assemblywoman Christy Smith of Santa Clarita and Republican former Navy pilot Mike Garcia were in a tight race Tuesday night to succeed Rep. Katie Hill in one of California’s most competitive congressional districts, in the northern suburbs of Los Angeles, according to early election returns. Former Rep. Steve Knight, the Republican who was ousted by Hill, a Democrat, in 2018, was close behind in an election that is likely to yield two runoffs - one in May to fill Hill’s seat for the rest of the year and another in November for the full two-year term that starts in...
  • White House appoints Uygur-American Elnigar Iltebir to top China policy advisory job

    South China Morning Post (Hong Kong) ^ | Aug 15, 2019 | Simone McCarthy
    The White House has appointed a Uygur-American academic to a top position on China policy in a move meant to put more pressure on China over mass detentions in the far western region of Xinjiang, analysts said. The appointment comes as Beijing faces intense international pressure over reports that up to one million Uygurs and other Muslims have been held in camps in Xinjiang, camps that Beijing says are vocational training centres. It also comes as China and the United States remain deadlocked in a trade war after more than a year of negotiations and tit-for-tat tariffs. Citing serving and...

    Cenk Uygur, Mark Thompson, and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, say Republicans are getting more fascist by the day. Uygur said by nature conservatives are authoritarian so they want a leader to take over and lead. CENK UYGUR: By nature conservatives are authoritarian so they want a leader to take over and lead. So to them, checking with Congress, that's a pain in the ass. They just don't fundamentally believe in the concept of democracy as much as we do. You can go ahead and cry about that but that's the nature of conservativism that you believe in...
  • Cenk Uygur: We're Beginning To Whisper About Sanders/Warren Dream Team To "Obliterate" Donald Trump

    Cenk Uygur, Ben Mankiewicz, Aida Rodriguez, and Ana Kasparian, hosts of "The Young Turks," break down the winners and losers of Tuesday's Democratic presidential debate from the progressive point of view. "[Sanders] was really strong, he was a fighter tonight, and Elizabeth warren with one great point after another," Uygur said. "Obviously looking at them together fighting off all the Republicans on the stage -- yes I know I said Republicans -- it made me think of, of course, the dream team. So tonight we begin to whisper of a dream that they're together. Obviously, we don't know what form...
  • Democrats Should Unify Behind AOC, Not Pelosi [Fun read from crazed moonbat!]

    Waaaal Street Journal ^ | July 21, 2019 3:55 pm ET | By Cenk Uygur
    Voters want impeachment and a progressive policy agenda. House leaders have another idea. When people say that Democrats should unify, the part they leave out is most important: Around what? Nearly everyone in Washington seems to assume that progressives should shut up, accept their place, and unify around the status quo. Think about what an arrogant and preposterous request that is. Progressive leaders, including our representatives in Congress, should abandon all of our policy positions and sell out our voters to please the Democratic establishment. Saying “hell no” to that would be an enormous understatement. If Democratic leaders don’t want...

    AOC is, for all intents and purposes, a hired actress hired by a group called by the Justice Democrats. An Indian guy from Texas, Saikat Chakrabarti, Zack Exley, plus Cenk Uygur of Young Turks fame have all been involved in getting her elected and giving her the script that she's been reciting. People behind the Bernie Sanders campaign also worked to get her elected. The video is 23.04 minutes long, but it's worth it.

    Rising tide of jihadists stopped trying to return to China, Chinese advisers say Advisers claim 10-fold increase in border interceptions but do not offer absolute numbers PUBLISHED : Monday, 08 January, 2018, 10:02pm UPDATED : Monday, 08 January, 2018, 11:34pm he number of “trained jihadist fighters” intercepted trying to re-enter China rose dramatically last year, posing a growing challenge for the country, according to Chinese government security and diplomatic advisers. The sources did not specify total numbers but said the increase reflected a higher threat, particularly to China’s western region of Xinjiang. But one London-based analyst said it was difficult...

    The Justice Democrats political action committee have expelled The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur and his business partner David Koller over a number of sexist blog posts written in the early 2000s, reports say. The Wrap revealed on Friday that Uygur and Koller, who are best known for their roles on The Young Turks network, authored a number of sexist blog posts. In the posts, Uygur argued that women were genetically “flawed” for not wanting to have more sex and claimed that he was “done” dating any woman if he hadn’t felt their breasts by the third date. Koller meanwhile recounted an experience of...

    'The Young Turks' founder Cenk Uygur responds to this footage of an audience both booing and laughing when former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist said he is voting for Hillary Clinton because she is "honest." “They LOL'd," Uygur said. "That's literally a LOL." The prominent Bernie Sanders supporter said it is time for the "Democratic establishment" to admit that they were wrong, that Sanders was the stronger candidate, and if he had been nominated he would be winning right now. "We’ve got 48 days to Armageddon," Uygur said about Trump's impending victory over Clinton. "Get your head out of your--... let’s...
  • Young Turks’ Uygur Thinks Hannity Advising Trump is Proof They’re Building Media Company

    The theory that Donald Trump is preparing for a defeat at the polls in November by planning to launch a media company is really picking up momentum. The rumors started swirling earlier this summer. After a few op-eds came out about the idea last week, CNN tackled it this weekend. Now that Fox News’ Sean Hannity has revealed himself to be informally advising Trump, The Young Turks took it on, too: Cenk Uygur mentioned in a broadcast that Hannity, Steve Bannon, and Roger Ailes, all of whom have been rumored — with varying levels of confirmation — are big in...

    On April 8, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi headlined a Boston conference on ''media reform.'' She was joined by four other congressmen, a senator, two FCC commissioners, a Nobel laureate and numerous liberal journalists. The 2,500-person event was sponsored by a group called Free Press, one of more than 180 different media-related organizations that receives money from liberal billionaire George Soros. Soros, who first made a name for himself in investing and currency trading, now makes his name in politics and policy. Since the 2004 election, the controversial financier has used his influence and billions to push a laundry list...

And--now hold on to your hat--Alan Grayson is slated to be his first guest, TONIGHT! Wow! Is this exciting or what? Your genial TV talk host, Cenk "The Young Turk" Uygur, has been absent from the cable airwaves, lo, these past many months, after an all-too-brief run on MSNBC, where, somehow, he was not able to garner the ratings he so richly deserves. I think Diebold must...

    Big Government ^ | July 25th | Larry O'Connor
    When NBC News and Cenk Uygur "mutually agreed" to part ways last week, Uygur took to his internet news program to explain his departure. He boasted that his YouTube show had "up to a million views per day." This suggests that the world was hungry for Uygur's special brand of progressive political commentary. We here at have taken a look inside the numbers and the fact is that political commentary is not what online viewers of "The Young Turks" keep clicking for. In fact, they aren’t looking for "news" either. The "up to a million views per day" are...

    Medialite ^ | July 21st, 2011 | Frances Martel
    Former MSNBC host Cenk Uygur’s departure from the network earlier today was fairly quiet for a close-to-primetime host, and the network made it clear it was his choice to leave. It didn’t take long for the newly liberated Uygur to address his fans. In the end, he explained, it boils down to this: Cenk Uygur is a tiger, and MSNBC tried to cage him. “They offered, honestly, a lot of money,” Uygur explains in his message, where he also says the role would have been a smaller one– “contributor, etc.”– instead of the alternate program the MSNBC statement suggested. He...

    People unfortunate enough to be watching MSNBC since Keith Olbermann was forced out in January have noticed a tremendously unqualified "Young Turk" in the 6PM slot that used to be occupied by Ed Schultz. For the past two weeks, Al Sharpton has filled in for the supposedly vacationing Cenk Uygur, and according to TVNewser, this might be permanent:

    I'm going to sit back and let our readers run with this one. On his MSNBC show tonight, Cenk Uygur said that "the Republican vision of Jesus" is "to tell the poor and needy to pound sand." Uygur offered his twisted theological take in commenting on a GOP proposal to trim allocations to a certain welfare program. View video here.
