Dem Candidate Uses Cenk’s Advice To Fight Allen West?

” The gloves are officially off in the race between Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) and his Democratic challenger, Patrick Murphy. Less than a week after West’s campaign released a brutal ad featuring Murphy’s mugshot from a 2003 arrest for disorderly intoxication, Murphy’s campaign hit back on Tuesday with an ad highlighting West’s illegal actions in the military that ultimately led to him being relieved of his command. “You need the facts about Allen West in 2003,” says the narrator in the Murphy ad, which begins by showing a clip of West’s ad from last week…”.* Does Murphy’s campaign staff watch TYT?

Castration Increases Life Expectancy – Would You Do It?
“It’s a life-extending strategy most men probably won’t want to pursue, but new research suggests eunuchs live longer than non-castrated guys. Historical Korean eunuchs — men who had their testicles removed in order to secure high positions in the palace hierarchy — outlived their non-castrated counterparts by as much as 20 years, the study finds. The results will be published tomorrow…in the journal Current Biology. In animals, castration tends to lengthen life span, likely because male sex hormones aren’t great for the health. Testosterone is an immune-system suppressor, for example, and can also increase the risk for cardiovascular disease…”.* Would you get castrated for the chance of a longer life? Ana Kasparian, Cenk Uygur, Jesus Godoy, Dave Koller, and Steve Oh break it down on The Young Turks.*Read more here from Stephanie Pappas / LiveScience / The Huffington Post:http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/24/castration-life-expectancy-eunuchs-men_n_1910455.html


“Republican Aaron Schock Gay?”

Published on Sep 4, 2012 by 

GOP Congressman Aaron Schock of Illinois, the subject of persistent gay rumors since he took office in 2009, said on Thursday that questions about his sexual orientation and how it might relate to his antigay voting record and positions are “inappropriate and ridiculous” and not “worthy of further response.” He also stated, “I’ve said that before,” when asked if he is confirming that he is not gay, and added, “You can look it up.” Schock had in fact stated to Details magazine in 2009 that he is not gay, in a lengthy piece which noted that he is unmarried and had been the subject of rumors as far back as 2004, when he was asked the question by a Chicago newspaper. The rumors, however, have only surfaced again and again…”.* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

Huge Profits, Tax Subsidies Don’t Change Pepco Response After Storm

“Heavy storms…knocked out electricity for millions of Americans across the mid-Atlantic, including hundreds of thousands of residents of the District of Columbia.

TYT: Super PAC Donors Have Corporate Bribery Issues

Published on Jul 4, 2012 by 

“A federal law to prevent U.S. companies from paying bribes to business overseas recently came to the forefront when The New York Times reported that Walmart officials had covered up alleged bribes made by company representatives in Mexico. The retail giant faces federal investigation for violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). Wealthy individuals connected with Walmart have meanwhile taken advantage of new campaign finance rules that allow for unlimited contributions — and raise fears of unlimited influence over a future administration. Jim and Alice Walton, children of the founder of Walmart, have contributed $200,000 each to Restore Our Future, the super PAC supporting Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney‘s campaign…The Waltons are not alone among super PAC donors with businesses facing FCPA investigation. At least three other major contributors currently have FCPA worries, and others may be looming. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, another big-money campaign spender, continues its lobbying to loosen enforcement of the anti-corruption law…”.* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

Mitt Romney’s PAC Empire

Uploaded by  on Apr 7, 2012

Via Sam Stein at The Huffington Post: “Mitt Romney‘s increasingly likely victory in the Republican presidential primary is a testament to the value of a well-organized and heavily financed campaign. And while evidence of that could be seen in prompt ballot filings and expensive television ad buys, Romney’s infrastructure advantage began to take root a year before the campaign actually started. The Romney campaign benefited from an intricate network of state-based political action committees that started him down the road toward the nomination sooner and pushed him further than anyone else in the Republican race. The PACs covered the costs of everything from Starbucks coffee and Bed Bath & Beyond purchases to legal bills and consulting fees. With the help of only a handful of incredibly wealthy donors liberated from federal contribution limits — several couples donating more than $100,000 on a single day — Romney was able to pay advisers who would become campaign staff, recruit surrogates, and re-affirm his standing within social conservative circles, going so far as to make a $5,000 donation to help maintain tough criminalization standards for marijuana users. All of it was done months before he had formally announced his second run for the White House…”.* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.
