Parkland Shooting Update, Gun Control, Fake News, and Trump On Shooting

A portion of our Young Turks Main Show from February 15, 2018. For more go to http://www.tytnetwork.com/join.Hour 1: Segment 1 Cenk. There have been 18 school shootings in the first 45 days of 2018, according to a nonprofit group. Speculation as to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooter Nikolas Cruz’s motivations began late yesterday as Instagram accounts and YouTube comments believed to be associated with him surfaced. Today the leader of a white nationalist fringe group claimed that Cruz was a member, and that his group had given Cruz training.Segment 2 The Gateway Pundit’s White House correspondent Lucian Wintrich circulated a hoax falsely claiming Buzzfeed wrote an article on “why we need to take away white people’s guns.” In the wake of the February 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school in Parkland, Florida, where at least 17 people were killed Wintrich posted a screenshot of a fake Buzzfeed article titled “Why We Need To Take Away White People’s Guns Now More Than Ever.” In his Thursday morning speech responding to the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida, President Donald Trump correctly noted that “it is not enough to simply take actions that make us feel like we are making a difference; we must actually make that difference.” This comment came near the end of a speech packed with condolences, platitudes, and vague promises to the 17 people who were killed on Wednesday. Though he acknowledged that reports of gunfire first brought police to the scene, not once did he utter the word guns.See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

The Young Turks 02.12.18: Teacher Fired, NYPD Tweet, American Hero In Wast Virginia, and DLCC Retreat

NYPD 100th precinct tweets about Black Lives Matter and get backlash.Hour 2: A woman was removed from the West Virginia House of Delegates on Friday after she used her testimony about a fossil fuel-sponsored piece of legislation to list industry donations to state lawmakers. When Democratic legislators gathered in a hotel in Portland, Maine, for a two-day policy conference last August, they were joined by a host of corporate interests who have good reason to want in on those conversations. The meeting of the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee, the party arm responsible for supporting state legislative candidates, was closed to the press and billed as an off-the-record event, but HuffPost has exclusively obtained a copy of the agenda, which shows the members of the DLCC’s finance council. The finance council includes companies, trade groups, labor unions and public interest organizations, who pay anywhere from $12,000 to more than $100,000 to the DLCC. In return, the conference provided an opportunity for donors to interact with state legislators ― many of whom head their respective chambers ― from around the country.See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Obama Portrait, Anti-Muslim Activist, Teacher Died, and Kirsten Gillibrand

A portion of our Young Turks Main Show from February 13, 2018. For more go to http://www.tytnetwork.com/join.Hour 1: Segment 1 Cenk. Fox News host Sean Hannity on Tuesday offered what was perhaps the most bizarre assessment yet of former President Barack Obama's official portrait by suggesting an artist included "sexual innuendo" in his depiction of the 44th president. A now-deleted post on Hannity's website claimed the portrait, painted by Kehinde Wiley, featured "secret sperm cells," seemingly referencing the detail of Obama's temple in the painting. In a since-deleted tweet on this, Hannity wrote, "Obama's portrait - a stark contrast to predecessors with inappropriate sexual innuendo." A conservative activist in Minnesota introduced a resolution last week to “minimize and eliminate the influence of Islam” in the state’s Republican Party. Jeff Baumann, a notorious anti-Muslim activist in Minnesota’s Senate District 36, also urged in the resolution that “no Islamic leader, religious or otherwise, shall ever be allowed to deliver the invocation at any Republican convention or event.” The resolution further called for “legislation, policies, and educational programs [to] be implemented... so as to evermore minimize and eliminate the influence of Islam within Minnesota, including Minnesota schools.” Two members of the Central Park Five spoke to CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Monday night, and they argued that President Trump‘s defense of Rob Porter fits in quite well with Trump’s pattern of behavior. Yusef Salaam and Raymond Santana were wrongfully convicted of raping and assaulting a jogger back in the ’90s. Trump not only called for their executions with a full page New York Times ad, but he still believes the two men are guilty despite both of them being exonerated by DNA evidence. Federal records show that Michael and Donna Nicholson, parents of the GOP candidate Nicholson, both gave the maximum $2,700 donation in December to U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin, the Wisconsin Democrat Nicholson hopes to unseat later this year.Segment 2 A second grade teacher from Texas died of the flu after she skipped treatment for the virus because it "cost too much." The president’s long-awaited $1.5 trillion proposal, which was released Monday, seeks to leverage $200 billion in direct federal spending over the next decade into an additional $1.3 trillion by relying on state and local tax dollars, as well as private investment. One way to attract private investors to finance infrastructure projects would be to toll roads. Trump’s infrastructure plan would give states more flexibility to toll existing interstate highways ― under the rationale that if you use a road, you ought to pay a price in order to maintain it. Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, considered a potential presidential candidate in 2020, announced Tuesday that she will no longer accept contributions from corporate political action committees.See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
