Think This Coal Country Southerner Voted for Trump?
 
05:01
Nic Smith, a self-described "white trash hillbilly from the holler" has a few choice words for The Young Turks and other "left wing media" outlets in regard to assumptions about people from the South and from Coal Country. Eric Byler ( http://Twitter.com/EricByler ) ask him if he believed Donald Trump when he promised to bring all the coal jobs back? What does he think about popular narratives on the right, blaming immigrants for global economic conditions, or cutting back on immigration to protect the white majority? Nic Smith is a Virginia Raise Up "Fight for 15" activist who, in a previous TYT Politics report, thrilled the TYT audience with keen observations and enlightening insights about 21st century struggles for working class Americans.

Iraq Confessions From Inside the Bush Administration

This is Part 1 of Eric Byler's interview with Col. Lawrence Wilkerson. See part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3nFnggBHFUo&index=20&list=PLqSpk99bLYITvsTNrEhtSXln2HBct0xuJ In the wake of Donald Trump's accusations against the Bush administration for lying about "Weapons of Mass Destruction" and failing to keep Americans save from terrorism, TYT's Eric Byler interviewed Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, former Chief of Staff for Secretary of State Colin Powell during the first term of the George W. Bush administration. Among veterans of the administration, Wilkerson is the most honest, most humble, and most outspoken critic of the abuse of intelligence during the selling of the Iraq War, a determined public relations campaign in which he regrettably played a role. Byler asked Wilkerson, "What should a responsible citizen know about the run up to the Iraq war, your role, Secretary Powell's role, and the use of intelligence?"

Col. Wilkerson Dissects Trump & Trumpism
 
11:25
This is part 2 of our interview with Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, who served in the first term of the George W. Bush Administration as the Chief of Staff for Secretary of State Colin Powell. In the first installment, Col. Wilkerson responded to the accusations Donald Trump has made about the Bush administration lying us into war, and failing to keep us safe from terrorist attacks on our soil. In this installment, he shares his candid assessments of the Donald Trump campaign, which he compares to the campaign of arch segregationist George Wallace in 1968. When asked if he would support Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders over Donald Trump or Ted Cruz, Col. Wilkerson said emphatically that he would. You can be the judge as to whether he prefers Bernie Sanders or former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. He did not say. The two candidates that he had the most positive view of were Sanders and Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R).

The Nation's John Nichols on Bernie Sanders Historical Context
 
27:03
John Nichols, longtime political writer for The Nation, spoke to TYT Political Reporter Jordan Chariton in New Hampshire before the state's primary. Nichols had a strong take on the media's "horse race" coverage of politics as opposed to covering the substantive policy differences between candidates on both sides of the aisle. "All that comes across in most of our media is an absurd horse race; the horserace and then the policing" he said. Nichols also touched on the feasibility of Bernie Sanders actually implementing his agenda.

Shailene Woodley Refutes Claims of "Violence" at Standing Rock
 
02:51
Actress Shailene Woodley passionately refutes claims by South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard that "violence' justifies the government's recent crackdown on Native Americans protesting the building of the Dakota Access Pipeline. Opponents argue that the pipeline endangers the drinking water and the environment of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, and 18 million Americans who depend on the Missouri River for drinking water. Indianz.com reports: Protests at the site of the Dakota Access Pipeline have been peaceful but tensions with law enforcement and officials in the state of North Dakota are flaring. The state on Monday removed water trailers from the site near Cannonball, The Fargo Forum reports. That means the thousands who have flocked to the Camp of the Sacred Stones and nearby areas have lost their main drinking water supply. “I feel like I just got shot down,” Johnelle Leingang, the emergency response coordinator for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, which had requested the trailers, told the paper. “It’s very hurtful.” According to the state's Homeland Security Division, the water trailers were pulled due to safety concerns. Also removed were two air-conditioned trailers and a command center vehicle, The Forum reported. Upwards of 2,000 tribal activists and supporters are at the campsite at any given time and hundreds more have been coming in and out as tribes from the Great Plains and even further away send delegations there. While the demonstration has been peaceful, some 28 people have been arrested, The Lakota Country Times reported. Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier of Morton County has been largely responsible for law enforcement at the site and he has accused protesters of shooting guns, carrying weapons and even threatening to use pipe bombs against his officers. But tribal members told The New York Times that the "bombs" were mistaken for sacred Chanunpa pipes used in ceremonies. “This is our homeland,” Phyllis Young, a Standing Rock Sioux citizen, told The Times. “We are Dakota. Dakota means friend or ally. Dakota Access has taken our name.” Dakota Access LLC, the partnership behind the pipeline, has secured a temporary restraining order against Standing Rock Sioux Chairman Dave Archambault II and several others that prevents them from interfering with construction at the site. Archambault was among those arrested on Friday, August 12, by the county sheriff. Additional arrests followed last week, The Lakota Country Times reported. Dakota Access was scheduled to go back to court in North Dakota this Thursday to argue for a preliminary injunction against Archambault and the other protesters. But Judge Daniel L. Hovland delayed he hearing after the parties agreed to extend the temporary restraining order. MORE: http://www.indianz.com/News/2016/08/23/sheriff-mistook-sacred-pipes-for-pipe-bo.asp

Hate Bill 2 Is NOT a Bathroom Bill — Rev. Dr. William Barber
 
18:03
Rev. Dr. William Barber's remarks from the historic anti-HB2 rally outside the North Carolina General Assembly in Raleigh, NC. Afterwards, the crowd marched into the GA building and conducted a mass sit-in both inside and outside the office of the North Carolina House Speaker. Fifty-four people were arrested. NOTE: On Monday, May 16, 2016, North Carolinians will again occupy the General Assembly building at 4 pm. (3 pm for those planning to risk arrest). Eric Byler will be there to stream live via Facebook Live. MORE INFO: https://www.facebook.com/events/470197463175635/ NOTE 2: See Rev. Barber speak in person on The Breach Repairers revival tour: http://www.breachrepairers.org Civil Rights leader Rev. Dr. William Barber II has asked participants, "Please don't call House Bill 2 'The Bathroom Bill.' because if you read Section 2 and Section 3, it also takes away the right of municipalities to increase the minimum wage. NC Republicans need the "bathroom" hysteria headlines to cover up this attack on the Fight for 15, because their actions would be deeply unpopular with voters if they did this straight up. 80% of North Carolinians support increasing the minimum wage. North Carolina Republicans are stoking bigotry, he asserts, and using the trans-gender community to disguise a cynical attack on labor, women, and families on behalf of business interests, and, to rally the base of the Republican party for November's crucial election. There are historical comparisons in which African Americans have been scapegoated and used in this way, including the wave of terrorism that overturned democratically elected biracial governments in the South in the decades following the Civil War, and the hateful electioneering of former NC Senator Jesse Helms. Thus, the the multi-faith and multi-racial Moral Movement is organizing a mass sit-in on Monday to expose the hidden agenda behind the so-called Bathroom Bill. Instead of The Bathroom Bill, call it The Anti worker, Anti-Living wage, Anti-Family, Anti-Women, Anti-Civil Rights, Anti-Gay, Anti-Transgender Bill. GOP lawmakers hoped we'd focus on the bathroom controversy, and not read Sec 2 and Sec. 3 which prohibit city governments such as Charlotte's and Greensboro's from requiring contractors to pay a living wage and afford workers with vacation sick leave. It also takes away the ability to file employment discrimination suits in in state court. Too many in the news media fall for the sensationalism of the Ted Cruz argument that little girls will fall prey to sexual predators if their entry to girls' bathrooms is not prohibited by state law. The Orwellian moniker, “Religious Freedom" reminds historians of previous dishonest, hate-based movements cloaked in false religiosity. The 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guaranteed for the first time that people who had been legally codified as three-fifths persons would enjoy equal protection under the law in this country. But the very notion of equal protection under law for African Americans was so offensive that it inspired a violent, orchestrated backlash, led by terrorist organizations such as the KKK working in concert with former slave owner/aristocrat/politicians.

Medicare For All: Here's How We Pay For It, Thanks for Asking!
 
03:31
TYT contributor Ryan Grim (Twitter.com/RyanGrim) breaks down the fine print Sen. Bernie Sanders' Medicare For All bill, including a response to critics who ask, "But how are you going to pay for it?" Ryan writes about this, with colleague Zaid Milani, for The Intercept: https://theintercept.com/2017/09/13/obamacare-over-single-payer-medicare-for-all-bernie-sanders/ The bill does not include an explicit funding mechanism. However, on Wednesday afternoon, Sanders’s office released a document laying out several options for financing the plan. The document is more or less a menu of various revenue mechanisms for the federal government to choose from. As the bill is debated in committee, Sanders said, senators can debate the various funding ideas. The list includes, for instance, both household and employer-based premiums. The document proposes a 7.5 percent income-based premium on employers and a 4 percent income-based premium on households. Together, it estimates these two proposals would raise $7.4 trillion over ten years. The document also notes that Medicare for All would eliminate various tax breaks that currently subsidize our current health financing system. This would raise $4.2 trillion over a decade. Then there’s a large list of non-health care related taxes: everything from making the estate tax more progressive to taxing large financial institutions to establishing a wealth tax on the top 0.1 percent.

Rubio Repeats Himself 4x In Epic Debate Fiasco
 
08:42
Unedited video of arguably the worst debate meltdown in US history. NOT JUST RUBIO BUT ‪#‎TOKENISM‬ SUFFERS MAJOR SETBACK: When a politician implodes on national television the way Marco Rubio did on Feb. 6, 2016, the public should see it unedited and without commentary, but, after you see this historic meltdown for yourself, please consider the "‪#‎Rubot‬ on Repeat" show from a broader perspective: tokenism. If there is one thing that people of color dislike as much as white conservatives dislike affirmative action, it is the use of tokenism to mask systemic racism. After Barack Obama won the White House in 2008, our nation's demographic changes inspired the GOP to gut the Voting Rights Act and orchestrate a wave of voter suppression, but it ALSO inspired some introspection. One result: the Republican party decided to look for female and minority candidates for future elections. The brightest star to emerge from this nationwide casting call was Marco Rubio. And, while his tepid 2016 campaign has done nothing to bring the Republican party into the 21st century in terms of policy, it's very possible that Rubio's humiliating debate performance will teach the Republican party a lesson about the moral and intellectual bankruptcy of tokenism. Contrary to the racist rants of Rush Limbaugh and other conservative thought leaders, minorities in America do not like to have doors opened for us just because of the color of our skin. Affirmative action is intended to prevent those doors from closing, which is a different matter entirely. And that is the big difference between affirmative action and tokenism. Affirmative action strengthens work environments and learning environments by adding to the diversity of ideas and experiences that contribute to a collaborative process. It counteracts the tendency to disqualify applicants based on prejudicial standards, and ensures that the alchemy of pluralism benefits our college campuses and our entrepreneurial industries, just as it has our nation's major economic centers for generations (ever ask yourself why the dynamic economies are always centered around urban areas with high levels of diversity?). Tokenism on the other hand, is tossing out merit or any other standard in favor of a cosmetic presentation intended to mask the status quo. That is why the knee-jerk tokenism that has influenced the Republican casting process since 2008 has produced astonishingly mediocre candidates like Bobby Jindal, Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina, and Marco Rubio. If the only qualification is that you are a woman or a person of color willing to memorize and repeat false notions that serve the interests of wealthy white men, well, Marco Rubio is what you get. Rubio is certainly not the only 2016 candidate who has robotically pandered to white racial resentment by bashing President Obama with the same, disingenuous talking points over and over again. But, if the Republican party thinks they are going to win over people of color by recruiting one of our own to do this, they have another thing coming. Tokenism is every bit as disgusting to people of color as it has proven embarrassing for the Republican establishment. Soon, we won't have Marco Rubio to kick around as a presidential candidate anymore. But we will always have his disastrous debate performance to thank for putting a stake through the heart of tokenism. — @EricByler
