Opinion: Kulinski have fled the sinking ship of TYT

It is now revealed after the video clip earlier this week of news anchor Cenk Uygur saying his final “goodbye” to Kyle Kulinski and “the Secular Talk” from The Young Turks (TYT) Network. The last few weeks has been horrible for TYT and this isn’t making things better.

That Kulinski is leaving the TYT. Shows that one of the biggest network assets has left the scene. As the TYT have lost two former commentators and contributors in Kulinski and Jimmy Dore. Both of these YouTube Channels has an ability cause a stir and political interest online. Where they will directly fight with TYT.

That Kyle is now leaving is an indication that the ties are now finally over. TYT have gone on a rampage against anyone criticising it. The TYT have tried to smear other journalists and directly attacked them. Without proof of their allegations and the supposed ill-advised reporting they supposed to do. While the TYT haven’t redacted or done anything in their way to take responsibility for their actions.

Cenk Uygur looks like his losing it and he don’t know how to handle this storm. The TYT is losing not only edge, but also subscribers. The TYT is losing former hosts, anchors and network associates. Former friends of the TYT is now becoming cold or getting attacked. That is what is happening and its a very tragic demise of the Network.

Kyle leaving this way shows he has understood that this was his time. He is starting to have a good platform on his own and also a podcast. His businesses elsewhere is reaching new heights and he isn’t in need of the backing of the TYT. That must hurt Cenk, but Cenk has also stopped giving him any reasons to be affiliated with the network.

The TYT brand and ethos as a progressive is clearly sinking. The ideals of the news network is also becoming stagnate. The TYT has 5 million members on YouTube, but how many of them is daily viewers? How many are following the live shows? Does the Vanguard or Hard Lens Media have more of a traction now? Heck does one man teams of Jesse Dollamore or Farron Balanced have rising power?

The TYT is living on a knives edge. Cenk’s words in his final goodbye to Kyle was distasteful and disgraceful. Wishing someone a “disaster” and saying his choices will be filled with more “disasters”. That isn’t professional, but a butt-hurt and seemingly angry. Kulinski should have gotten some respect for all the years he was a part of the network and the work he put in.

The TYT needs to revaluate its purpose, unless they want to known for these sort of acts. Instead of being the home of progressives. They are instead the home of smear-artists and attacking other journalists. Who can trust a home like that? Who want to watch that?

The way Cenk handled Kyle leaving isn’t worthy of anyone. Especially, when they have worked together for years and been loyal to the same cause. If someone did the same to me and my folks. I would have been horrified and wondered what caused the change.

Cenk especially needs to repurpose his manners and where he wants the TYT to go. Because, people like me used to watch it. However, during the last month I have ditched it totally and I’m not planning to return either.

TYT isn’t showing any care for the viewers, its affiliates or former employees. It is just becoming a hawkish YouTube platform. Not a News Network anymore…. and only name-calling without proof. That isn’t what I came for, but that’s what Cenk is serving you. Peace.

Opinion: TYT have lost me forever now

The Young Turks (TYT) is the biggest YouTube News Channel and the supposed challenger to the Mainstream Media (MSM). However, with the time the difference between TYT and the MSM has withered. The difference between TYT and MSNBC is now now bare minimum.

The TYT difference is the news anchors Cenk Ugyur and Anna Kasparian. The TYT isn’t doing what they used to do. They are instead being smear-artists and going after other credible journalists.

This being either Aaron Maté, Glenn Greenwald or Richard Medhurst. The TYT even went after Julian Assange. Just like they have targeted former employee and comedian Jimmy Dore. The TYT have no quarrels doing this.

It is tragic that things gone this far. That Cenk is saying this about other journalists without any real evidence. He targets people and smears them. He just wants to prove a point and targets them directly. What happened to have any sort of integrity at TYT?

That seems to be lost… and the Network needs to think about themselves. The TYT needs to consider their approaches. They are not reporting news or becoming a viable news source. When they are doing this to credible journalists.

Yes. Nobody is perfect and have done wrong. The TYT goes directly at Dore at his wrongs. However, the same TYT never takes any responsibility for the years of Howard Stern content and “camel toe” segments. Therefore, the TYT isn’t sincere in this. Neither is Cenk who said he wouldn’t even sleep with someone on live-air. That’s why this TYT isn’t what it seems.

I used to watch TYT to get another experience and another perspective to U.S. politics. However, the attacks on Maté, Greenwald or Dore. What else can the TYT edit in their favour? What else can the TYT say or do to save face?

Not like the TYT has taken any responsibility for these smear campaigns and how they are dwelling into these shady tactics. This is not what reliable networks does, but what people does to save face. They are also editing things to make them worse, but not taking any sort of account of their own past behaviour. Even telling the public. That if you watch Jimmy or read anything from Glenn. Just buzz off and don’t return.

That’s what’s happening and its distasteful. Dishonest and disingenuous at best. Disrespectful to the viewer and to the ones who follows them.

This isn’t TYT I used to watch and I’m sad that it turned out like this. Peace.

Opinion: Biden don’t believe in the freedom of speech

Well, during the Trump Administration it was courtesy of the Republican President to call the media the “fake news” and not address the media. They only sent out the Spokesperson of the White House and let bygones be bygones.

These days with the Democratic Party President Joe Biden. Things are not getting better. In 2021, the true nature of his administration is getting out. Not only the nonchalant lecturing of the world. However, they are also seizing networks, media houses webpages in a raid from the FBI. Just like pirates taking away content and news pages ability to report. That is done as a sort of display of “national security” but really to stifle the press in other regions of the world.

This is all falling back on the Executive Order from June 9th 2021:Executive Order on Protecting Americans’ Sensitive Data from Foreign Adversaries “. Where President Biden furthers the powers and continues the path of Trump to go after foreign sites and web-pages. In this regard has no been used against news organizations in the Middle East. Which happens to report in another way than the Washington D.C. accepts. Because, they we’re located on .Com the U.S. say they have jurisdiction to take these sites down. Therefore, they can internationally go after people online. As long as they have a certain power with U.S. law there.

That’s why we can see that the U.S. have now used these powers and by the President who has given his authorities these powers to seize these new-sites. That says it all by the lack of freedom of speech, liberty to post online and produce content. When a nation can go across borders and close news networks or news-sites belonging elsewhere. The lesson here… is that Biden and his government doesn’t really believe in the freedom of the press. Only to the anointed ones and the ones who parrots their agendas. If they differs and has a .com. They should be worried…

That the U.S. does this only shows their true heart and their lack of integrity. That they are demeaning and imperial in action. The Biden administration rather block and silence outside media. Especially, if it see it as a resistance or reporting, which differs from what the U.S. deems undesirable. That is how it looks and Biden cannot run away from this.

Biden and his Executive Order just prolongs and extends the powers Trump had issued in his time. There is no difference here. Only that one man masks as a hero. While the other is the supposed villain. Ironically, Biden is doing the same and furthering the legacy of the interference of the imperial U.S. state. They are doing this online, but it shows their real intentions and what they are gunning for.

I wonder, how would the U.S. have reacted if the PBS, VOX or anything was blocked or jammed online in the nations, which the U.S. has silenced media from?

That seems to only be the fair thing to do. Why should just the U.S. be allowed to silence media? Why shouldn’t Syria and Iran block U.S. media houses now?

Biden deserves to be pushed for this. As his administration and his government is blocking foreign news-sites and news networks. What rights does he have to do this?

Now, the governments of Middle East should retaliate and answer this. Not only being mull and look at it. They should answer back and block U.S. media from their shores. That only makes sense. As the U.S. Imperialism in 2021 needs to be retorted and this act is disgusting. Peace.

Resident Doctors Association of Zambia: Press Statement (23.06.2021)

Opinion: The TYT isn’t all what it seems

The Young Turks (TYT) have been a place for other type of news online. A place where you would find other sources and stories than in the Main-Stream Media (MSM). However, over the years it has changed. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian have for years been the main anchors of the TYT.

They have had other participate and covered various of stories. The TYT have been interesting as another source in covering the United States Elections and especially the Presidential races. Which, the covering and live-shows has enriched the conservation. However, their hypocrisy and their shady history is now coming to back to haunt them.

The TYT cannot smear others without taking into account their own lack of moral judgments and misogyny. There is a plethora of clips showing Cenk and Ana discussing celebrities and viral photos/clips as part of a segment of their show. That was happening years ago and in the early age of the TYT. Still, it is a part of the history and how the TYT represented itself. Even if the TYT have made these videos private. There are some who has catalogued them and is re-issuing them on YouTube.

Therefore, the TYT cannot run away from these clips as the TYT smears and go after other journalists. Instead of taking into account their own behaviour and actions. A news network who has said to be progressive and for the left. It seems to have lost its way. They are parroting certain objective campaigns and agendas. While they want the world to believe they are “independent” and not beholden to “corporate” interests. When the TYT has been looked into and taken questionable vulture capitalist funding and also direct DNC donor money. Therefore, “off course” this has implicated the show and the stories its telling.

Money talks… for a TYT Network who has worked so hard to get money out of politics. Fight the corrupt Washington and the politicians beholden to the lobbyist and corporate donors. It is very significant that the TYT is taking millions and dealing with the corporate like they do. That is selling out and taking away their credibility.

They are not run by the ad revenue on YouTube or by the Memberships. When they have gotten millions of dollars and these are steering the conversation. They are clearly being used and will be sounding like other MSM. When the donors and the ones paying for the operation want their end of the bargain. That is just a fact and not a smear campaign against the TYT. That is a decision the TYT have done and out of business. It is good business. They are getting paid and gotten a financial boost.

The TYT doesn’t have to account for the 5 million subscribers and whatever amount of paying members they have. They are still trying to sell it after every video. However, the TYT is most likely earning more on the DNC funding than what it earns on its members.

That means the TYT will play the songs the DNC donors wants them to sing. This isn’t progressive or anything they want to label. That’s why I in the future rather watch Jesse Dollemore, Farron Cousins or DL Hughley. They will speak more sense to a guy like me and seems real.

At this moment in time. I cannot just watch the TYT and not question their agenda. Because, it has unravelled this week. A place I used to go. To see something else and get a little balance from MSNBC and CNN. Now, that is not possible. Especially, on the covering of United States matters, which is the reason why I look at their covering of politics in general.

That ship has sailed. The TYT have lost a former viewer now. Because, I have learned enough this week and seen their true face. This is not happening because of their shady outburst against Jimmy Dore or weaponizing MeeToo. Dore might be bad at it and act a fool for all I know. However, Cenk and Ana needs to look into their own past and own creative decisions. Which wasn’t all that great….

TYT has lost a viewer on YouTube. The TYT looked better and had made itself seems legit. However, it was a house built on sand and the waves are now washing it away. Peace.

Opinion: Biden must be so forgetful

Let’s get this straight: How would it be if the United States were viewed by the rest of the world as interfering with the elections directly of other countries, and everybody knew it? What would it be like if we engaged in activities that he is engaged in? It diminishes the standing of a country that is desperately trying to make sure it maintains its standing as a major world power” – President Joe Biden (16.06.2021).

The United States government have over the years used their power, their might and ability to get puppets and friendly government elected. If not, they have overthrown peacefully elected people to get in leaders who are working directly for Washington D.C.

The US has interfered not only during elections, but after to get their leaders in office. The CIA and other organizations in proxy have intervened. The U.S. have spared any sort of resorts and resources on getting their people in power. This being in Latin America where the U.S. have installed their regimes and they have been working for corporate American interests.

That being Haiti, Nicaragua, Guatamala, Chile, Bolivia and so on. The list is endless. Some are saying the U.S. has interfered in 45 countries since the Second World War. The U.S. installed their puppet in Zaire, the now Democratic Republic of Congo after they helped to assassinate the elected President Patrice Lumumba. That’s how the DRC had decades of despotic rule with Mobutu.

That’s how the U.S. rolls and works. They are using their power and might. They have their agents and their front-organizations to dismantle and ensure their interests are secured on foreign soil. The U.S. doesn’t value democratic values, they only value US dollars and profitable enterprises run by U.S. corporations.

So, when President Biden says what he says. Does he think we forget about Bolivia during Trump and the failed “Wonga” coup of Venezuela? Like does he think we are this dumb or naive?

That we don’t know what the U.S. has done and have been willing to do? Like installing the Shah in Iran and making it a pariah state after the Iranian revolution leading to his fall. That’s just what the U.S. does and leaves behind open wounds. The likes of supporting interventions in nations like Libya, but not having a clear path after overthrowing a President-for-Life Gadaffi. Therefore, Biden should take a step back and maybe have a few history lessons.

The U.S. has a history of using their army, organizations and the CIA has been implicated in overthrowing governments. The U.S. have been involved in coups and in election interference to get their folks in power. To think otherwise is to revise history and forget what the U.S. has done over the years.

The U.S. has installed and secured their interests above all else. They have later preached “democracy” and “liberty”. Though it has been hallow and shallow, as we all know why they did this in the first place. That was to get their value for their US dollars in that Republic. This is the gist of it and its no joke.

Biden please take responsibility. This is not funny. We know and you should know. The U.S. have exported its imperialism over the years. Time to take responsibility and be accountable. Not only think flattery and words like these will skim over it. I hate to say it, but it won’t.

We know what the U.S. has done and been committed to do. I wouldn’t be shocked, if suddenly Biden took down someone who would turn to Russia/China anytime soon. Instead of being loyal to Washington. Peace.

Opinion: To drink a Coke or not to drink a Coke, that is the question…

Today the reactions to the new voter laws in the State of Georgia is happening. Rightfully so. It is a need to address and take account of the awful and disenfranchising electoral laws the Republican Party have signed into law. The act of Governor Brian Kemp and his fellow Republican Representatives. They have all deliberately done this and with intent of making it harder for fellow citizens to cast their ballot and vote. That is for the simple reason. The less voters means more likely a Republican majority. Therefore, it is winning strategy to make it harder for the general public to vote.

Now… what is tragic about the politics in America at the moment. Is that instead of looking at the initial issue. The progressive and the ones who wants voters to show up is going up against the businesses in Atlanta, Georgia. The ones who has a base there and the ones who funnel money through the political system. A system that the Democratic Party and the Republican Party is fine with in the days of sunshine, but speaks ill of in the days of rain.

This week has been a storm and been heavy rain. The raindrops are clearly hitting hard and not so easily to get to the storm-drain. Nevertheless, the ideals should be to revise the system. Get new legislation to counter this one or repeal the acts that disenfranchise voters in Georgia. That should be the focus. The focus should be on the ideals and integrity of the ballot, which John Lewis stood for and fought for all his life.

Not battle the beverages industry and one of its giants Coca-Cola Company. Yes, the giant international beverage company has its sins to answer for. They have their ills and its profit motive at any given time. However, it isn’t the bottles of Coke fault for the voters law. Neither is it in the interest of a bottling and beverages company to stop people from voting. Their best interests is to get people hooked on their drink and purchase more of bottles next time they pass by a Wall-Mart.

That is why politics in the United States have gone bonkers. Yes, the politicians are screwed by lobbyist and secretive PAC-Money, which funds their massive and expensive campaigns. Still, in the middle of that. That doesn’t mean they are responsible for the ills and evil, which occurs now and then. Right now that’s all on Governor Kemp and his Republican comrades.

A bottle of Coke will not solve this. Neither will a bottle of Pepsi. Heck, no sort of drink will juice up the veins of democracy. Not the Speakeasies or the roaring 1920s will make fudge about it either. Coca-Cola isn’t the company to solve or in the dominion to do so. Yes, they can stop giving money to the Republican Party, but that they will only cease for a hot-minute and return when they need favourable legislation. As long as the dark-money and PAC money can fund politicians. The companies will return and secure results on their “investments”.

The activists shouldn’t go for a boycott and stop drinking Coke. That is a short-term and a losing strategy. Who will win? The one with billions in the bank and can sustain a hit or the few consumers with a moral obligation? I think the guy with the biggest bank and there are so many who don’t care. Those folks will drink Coke regardless.

That is why, the ones who wants change and make a difference. Call the legislators. Email them like crazy. Make their team and staff go nuts over all the feedback. Make the legislators of State of Georgia packed with messages, faxes or whatever they get memo home. That what they was wrong and they need to revise it.

The GOP and the Governor will not care if you stop drinking Coke. They will not give a damn. You are the ones who losing your beverage. It is not difference then when Republican activists burns their Nike’s or destroyed their coffee-maker. In some ways … its the same thing and neither was winning.

The activists and the ones calling for this. Better think ahead. The Democrats who are fearing for the ballots and voters of Georgia. Better do “Good Trouble”. What they are doing is symbolic hogwash. This is changing their Tinder Profile and thinking their soulmate will love that you were drinking Pepsi instead of Coke. Sorry brother, but that’s not it and that wasn’t the reason why the person swiped your way.

Let’s be clear. You can stop drinking coke, but that will not save democracy. You can boycott Coke, but that not resolve the issues either. What you can do and what you should do. Is to show civil disobedience and call for changes in legislation. Both in Georgia and in the Federal Law. So, that dark-money cannot run rampant behind closed chambers and decide what lawmakers do. Secondly, you can pressure state legislatures to actually vote for laws that makes it easier to vote and not what they did this week. That is what you should do. Not stop sipping Coke.

That means visible protests in the streets. Sponsoring billboards, sending letters, emails and other texts to legislators and by all means be vocal about the cause. Nevertheless, the idea of stopping to drink a beverage. Well… that is futile and not doing anyone any damage. Coke will not be hurt and their bottom-line will not even feel the sting.

It is a time for everything, but boycotting Coke over voting legislation is redundant and a foolish enterprise. Especially, when there are so many other avenues where the ones in power would fear you and would feel your presence. They are not fearing what your drinking in your living-room and at your kitchen. No, they are fearing your feet stomping in the streets and your voices cracking close to their chambers of power. That is why they take away your access to vote in the first place. Peace.
