Assange is

Assange is a israeli/mossad/zionist shill

all wikileaks are filtered through israeli intelligence , pointed intellgence is added or removed before being released, per globalist elitest Zbigniew Brzezinski and others,

"The real issue is, who is feeding Wikipedia on this issue -- Wiki -- Wiki -- WikiLeaks on this issue? They're getting a lot of information which seems trivial, inconsequential, but some of it seems surprisingly pointed." - Brzezinski

I would'nt take any credence to anything they supposedly break out in the open nowadays.

assange is in no fear of being arrested more so than a defenseless kitten would.

Cenk isn't he an Al gore shill ?

Cenk- "if they need to bury a journalist, A real journalist"

he is referring assange as a real journalist ?

I fail to see how you imagine you "support"

Liberty by tossing out wild smears that put you in the same category as the owned MSM and the Obama administration, on whistleblowers and free speech and a free internet.
There is a small, rabid strain in those who claim to support Liberty which jumps frantically on every imaginable conspiracy theory without bothering with details like solid proof and evidence -- or logic.

Additionally you do a gross dis-serice to many sincere people risking their freedoms, lives, and finances to go toe to toe against the lethal and corrupt Empire and its minions. By comparison it is far too easy to just type smears at a keyboard; and you quote Brzezinski (!?)

SOLID PROOF

brezinski is well connected elitest who in his old age is becoming more and more candid with his statements.

Assange has risked nothing and his life is not at risk , wake up dude and see through the bullshit, he is a stooge for zionist assests. PROVEN!
you would have to actually research before you post , I do research ALL FUCKEN DAY LONG.

there are things wikileaks has released in the past that intentionally had certain items ommitted in favor of supporting israel/apartheid.

the proof is all in those articles above, ever wonder why assange hasnt released crap lately, not because he is being sought for some phony made up allegations, but because he is a proven faud in the intelligence communities.

Cenk is a socialist, but he's

Cenk is a socialist, but he's 100% opposed to interventionism in Syria, Iran, Iraq etc. (neighboring countries to his native Turkey).

Cenk is more in line with people like Noam Chomsky in this regard. Chomsky is a socialist too, but a dyed-in-the-wool non-interventionist. Chomsky is strongly opposed to invaders like Monsanto as well...not so sure about Cenk on that issue.

OK, after some searching here is a video of Cenk Young Turks and the Armenian Ana talking about Monsanto in this video. I like these people for doing random repetitive acts of real journalism in these regards - similar to Abby Martin at RT.

We don't agree on everything with people like these, but we need to build coalitions with them on matters we strongly agree on.

Immoral funding of Military Industrial Complex by Federal Reserve and US taxation system must stop!!!! End illegal/unconstitutional wars! Preserve US currency!

Cenk supported the Libya

Cenk supported the Libya intervention. He opposes Repub "national security" wars, but supports many of the Dem "humanitarian" wars.

He supported Libya because he

He supported Libya because he felt that if neocons really wanted to build democracy around the world, they should support American support of a Democratic movement...

You're seriously defending

You're seriously defending this guy? He's a mainstream, establishment liberal who agrees with the Democrats on almost everything. He's the left wing equivalent to Hannity or O'Reilly, who I'm sure you're very critical of and wouldn't think of defending and yet they are still ideologically closer to us than Cenk Uygur.

It would be unthinkable to say "Limbaugh only supported Iraq because he felt if the liberals really wanted to stop dictators killing their own people around the world, they should support American support of a humanitarian intervention." So why is it acceptable to treat the leftists differently?

The neo-cons already did support the Libya intervention. McCain was one of the biggest proponents of it.

Yet he is also one of Obama's

Yet he is also one of Obama's biggest critics. Hannity and O'Reilly would defend a President Romney if he ordered the termination of all fetuses.

In a venn diagram of the Republican party, Ron Paul, and Cenk Uygur, Ron and Cenk have much more in common than Ron and the Republicans.

Cenk is a former federalist; a hardcore conservative. He's a constitutionalist...he just sees it in a different way. And his arguments are very sound arguments; for example, he's shattered people like Scalia, Ron Paul, Tom Woods, Rand Paul, and Buchanan on their views of the 14th amendment (Cenk and Judge Nap share this view). He's moved from this view, but you can still see glimpses of it in him; he's against Roe vs. Wade and against granting amnesty to illegals.

Cenk sides with the Democrats because they agree with him much more when it comes to social policy...he is correct that the Republican party is going to do nothing on the fronts of gay marriage and drug legalization. And when it comes to issues like the TSA, Patriot Act, drone strikets, etc, there are definitely more Democrats than there are Republicans protesting the status-quo. He is also very, very, anti-fed.

Where he disagrees greatly from Ron Paul are his views on taxation, regulation, gun control, and the economy. Other than gun control, it isn't like the Republican party is with Ron Paul on those other issues.

Since when have the Democrats

Since when have the Democrats done anything about drug legalization/decriminalization? A lot of them talk the talk, but so did Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dan Quayle, Chris Christie... Very of few politicians, Democrat or Republican actually want to legalize marijuana, let alone other drugs.

Cenk isn't one of Obama's biggest critics. I've heard him complement Obama a number of times. He is not a conservative or a constitutionalist. He is fiscally left wing and he sides with the Democrats because they are socially and fiscally left wing and so is he. The fiscal issues are the biggest and most important issues. He may be against Roe vs. Wade but he's still strongly pro-choice. Sure, they may both want to leave it up to the states, but if they lived in the same state, they would oppose one another. It's true Ron Paul doesn't have that much in common with "Republicans". But he does support pretty much everything in the Republican party platform and it is actually the fault of other Republicans that they don't.

Issues where Ron agrees with Cenk:
- Auditing the Federal Reserve
- War on drugs
- Marijuana legalization
- Iraq and Afghanistan

Issues where Ron disagrees with Cenk:
- Civil liberties
- Gay marriage
- Immigration
- Marijuana regulation
- Israel
- Free trade

Issues where Ron strongly disagrees with Cenk:
- Ending the Federal Reserve
- The Gold Standard
- Gun rights
- Election funding
- Regulation
- Abortion
- Cutting domestic spending
- Foreign aid
- Healthcare
- Taxation
- Labor unions
- Education
- Libya
- Energy

Glenn Beck was a critic of GW Bush. He calls himself a libertarian except on some aspects foreign policy. What makes Cenk any better than Glenn Beck, a man who is clearly hated on this website? Both seem to flip-flop on Ron Paul every day, both have said they think he's great and then change their minds a week later.

"Cenk isn't one of Obama's

"Cenk isn't one of Obama's biggest critics. I've heard him complement Obama a number of times."

Yet he still criticizes Obama. He has also complimented Ron Paul a number of times.

"He is not a conservative or a constitutionalist."

He is a former conservative, and he is very constitutionalist. He just believes in different judicial principles.

"He is fiscally left wing and he sides with the Democrats because they are socially and fiscally left wing and so is he. The fiscal issues are the biggest and most important issues."

He does side with them fisically, but they are only the biggest issues to you.

"Issues where Ron agrees with Cenk:
- Auditing the Federal Reserve
- War on drugs
- Marijuana legalization
- Iraq and Afghanistan"

Agreed

"Issues where Ron disagrees with Cenk:
- Civil liberties"

How are they different here?

"- Gay marriage"

Probably correct in the Cenk takes the more constitutional position, choosing to uphold the equal protection clause.

"- Immigration"

They are a lot more similar than you'd think. Cenk wants to stop illegal from coming over here, but he also wants to open the borders to get more talented immigrants coming over here.

"Marijuana regulation"

True. Cenk wants to tax it.

"- Israel"

Is Ron Paul pro-Israel? Cenk really isn't.

"- Free trad"

From what I can recall, Cenk is strongly for free trade because it is the best according to economists. He does think that we should tax the imports of any nation that taxes are imports.

When Ron Paul was filling

When Ron Paul was filling thousands of seats at events, Cenk Uygur reported no one was following Ron Paul and laughingly stated Ron Paul didn't have a chance at the nomination. Yes, he said Ron Paul was insignificant. He claims he is alternative media but never covered any third party candidate during the Republican race. When mentioning Dr. Paul, Cenk was patronizing and derisive. On the other hand, Rachael Maddow of mainstream MSNBC, respectfully spoke of Dr. Paul and wanted an interview during the Republican campaign.

Cenk does not support Roe vs Wade??? He is flip flopping on that one.

Cenk disrespected Ron Paul and his followers as much if not more than any mainstream outlet.

He agrees with the outcome of

He agrees with the outcome of Roe vs. Wade, but says that nothing in the Constitution empowers the federal government to make a decision about it, so it is a 10th amendment issues best left to the states.

After that, yes, he thinks that any state that would ban abortion would be engaging in horrendously stupid policy, but that is besides the point.

I don't know whether he

I don't know whether he supports Roe vs. Wade or not, that's what the other guy said, I believed him, don't know whether he's right or not.

Cenk has a generally dislikable personality. You can be a progressive/socialist/liberal/neo-con/beltway libertarian/religious right person politically and still be a nice guy personally. Cenk just isn't, he enjoys talking trash about anyone with opposing views.

Cenk got me interested in

Cenk got me interested in politics so I understand your devotion. However, he also woke me up to the false left-right paradigm.

According to the far left, everything the right wing stands for is pure conspiracy and racism. No, that is not true. Many issues of the right are grounded in facts. The left completely forgives Obama for his record because the right is racist. From the far Right all you hear is how every issue from the left is pure evil to the point where you are not even suppose to associate with those "evil" Democrats.

The Hypocrisy of both sides cannot be understated.

I'll just say that Cenk can be proud of the fact that during the 2012 Republican nomination for President, he did every thing in his power as a Journalist, to stop the Ron Paul Revolution.

What devotion? I'm not a TYT fan.

Used to Like Cenk

But then I heard him blasting Ron Paul and other liberty minded people so I quit watching him. This is good though. He flip-flops almost as much as Romney.

skippy

I have not forgiven Cenk

I have listened to Cenk report false information because of his leftist agenda and failure to investigate the material. Cenk has always supported Julian Assange but I have heard him flip flop on major issues. In the past, he praised Obama's drones and seems eager to jump into war. He plays the left/right paradigm to the hilt. We are seeing a resurgence of his old style of reporting because the ratings at Current were hurting. He gets great ratings on YouTube but I feel since the senior people at Youtube and Google love The Young Turks, their views are padded. There is a video of Al Gore telling Cenk to do what he wants as long as he stays true to the Democrats. Before Al Gore butted in, Cenk wanted Ron Paul to win so Obama would have to debate real issues. Than he did a 180 and marginalized Ron Paul and his followers exactly like the Republicans and Mainstream media. On Second Thought ...Cenk is mainstream media lite. I almost want to call him a Leftist Glenn Beck.

He's worse than Glenn. Glenn

He's worse than Glenn. Glenn is right on most things, except foreign policy. Still a pretty annoying guy at times too.

Cenk is just a d***.

Let me remind you that Glenn

Let me remind you that Glenn Beck swore up and down that by the end of 2010, all Americans would be rounded up and sent into concentration camps.

It is hilarious how he's made these wild accusations of Obama being associated by anti-colonialism, Bill Ayers, Muslims, and black radicals, while completely ignoring Obama's more real associations with the fatcats on wall street.

That's a bad thing? We now

That's a bad thing? We now live at a time at which anything could happen. I wouldn't be surprised if a president one day decided to round everyone up and send them to a concentration camp. Some argue it's already happening with the FEMA camps.

Obama's communist and black nationalist connections are concerning and are a valid reason to oppose him. Remember how many liberals and neo cons (including Cenk Uygur, as a matter of fact) started dissing Dr. Paul simply because he accepted donations from some Klansmen and accidentally hired a racist ghostwriter for his newsletter. It is very unfair that people are giving Obama a pass just because he's black and liberal and it would be racist to call him out for what he's doing. I guarantee you that Obama would not even have a chance of becoming his party's presidential nominee if he was white and had fascist and white supremacist connections.

Glenn is to some extent, an idiot and often he needs to be laughed at. But Cenk Uygur likes to laugh at anyone with right wing views! When I see his videos, half of it is pretty much just him talking trash and laughing at people.

You seem to sympathize a lot with the left. Are you one of those "Blue Republicans"?

agreed

Cenk is mainstream media lite. I almost want to call him a Leftist Glenn Beck.

looks like a turd ,smells like a turd ,talks like a turd , it probably is ......
