UPDATE: Konami Orders Takedown on Critical YouTube Video

 

Note: YouTube has Overridden Konami’s takedown order since this video was shot. However, it’s an important enough issue that we feel this still needs to air- Mgmt. (Kim)

Hideo Kojima and Konami are in the middle of…something. We know this much is true. But when George “Super Bunnyhop” Weidman published video alleging he had inside information on what’s going on with Konami, the company ordered the video be taken down! Why does this matter? And how does this reflect on the embittered company?

Kim Horcher discusses with special guests Erika Ishii and Becca Scott, both from Geek and Sundry on Twitch! (http://www.twitch.tv/geekandsundry)

ISIS = Islamic Extremists? ‘No’ Says Obama and Jordan’s King Abdullah II

 

“Cenk Uygur (http://www.twitter.com/cenkuygur) host of The Young Turks discusses the most recent comments by Jordan King Abdullah II who claims that ISIS is not an example of Islamic Extremists.

During an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, the Jordanian King stated that he agreed with earlier statements from U.S. President Obama and believed that members of ISIS were ‘outlaws’ on the outside of the established religion of Islam that boasts over one billion members. He added that ISIS is simply looking for a legitimate face for its organization and that its members ‘do not have any relation to [the Islamic] faith’.

This comes after weeks of reporting by Fox News that favored King Abdullah II as a strong leader over what they perceived as an ineffectiveness by President Obama.”

Is ISIS an Islamic Extremist organization, or are they simply trying to claim the title for their own ends? Tell us what you think in the comments below.

OBGYN Helps Women Find And Stimulate G-Spot

 

“A disciplinary panel has voted to strip an Ohio gynecologist of his medical license for inappropriate behavior with two patients, both of whom the physician helped find their respective “G-spots” before engaging in further sexual contact, according to state records.

The State Medical Board of Ohio last month voted to sanction Dr. Kurt Froehlich, a Cincinnati doctor who has been licensed to practice medicine since 1993. A medical board member who voted to permanently revoke Froehlich’s license called the case against the 48-year-old physician (seen at right) the “most crude” he had seen in 40 years.” *

Wall Street Guardian Angel Completely Missing In Action

 

“For all the anger among progressives about a Wall Street bailout provision that made its way into the just-passed $1.1 trillion government spending bill, there’s been little attention on the person who put it in there.

Meet Congressman Kevin Yoder (R-Kansas).

Yoder, a second-term congressman whose largest contributors are in the finance industry, introduced the provision last summer. It was literally written by Citigroup executives, but Yoder took their language and rolled it into an amendment to a spending bill in a House subcommittee meeting. It got swept into the year-end spending package because it “was within the scope of negotiations” on it, according to an Appropriations Committee aide.

The provision, which prompted a fiery speech by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), undoes a rule that prevents big banks from relying on the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. to bail them out if things go sour when they trade risky assets.”* The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

Interview With Member #81 John Patrick Bowles

1. How old are you and what state do you live in?

I’m 44 and live in Glacier, Washington, right next to Mt. Baker. However, I grew up in the woodsy knolls of north-central Connecticut (Somers), went to university at UVM in Burlington, VT, and lived in Burlington for twenty-five years before moving west to Jackson Hole last winter and then to Glacier just a few months ago.

2. When did you become a member of TYT?

I think I pulled the trigger on membership sometime in 07. Not entirely sure.

3. How do you consume the show?

Whatever suits my fancy, which is a great thing about TYT. I’ll listen to the podcast if I am moving around, and when I’m at home I’ll either stream or download the video.

4. What field do you work in?

Media/publishing; I’m the Copy Chief at SNOWBOARDER Magazine.

5. How would you describe TYT in 5 words or less?

Totally Biting My Thought Process.

6. Do you have a favorite TYT moment?

Too many to really pick one. I am quite fond of Ben’s dad’s “Wrong again, Bob” story, though. Novak was such a prick.

7. Who is your favorite co-host? Why?

I’m assuming this excludes Jilly and Ana. Aside from those two fantastic broads, I’d definitely say Ben, as he has great chemistry with Cenk and Ana, is super quick-witted, and has a snarky sense of humor that I dig.

8. What motivated you to take the extra step of becoming a paying member?

I needed more TYT than the old 30-minute free podcast that I could snag on iTunes.

9. Are you surprised that the The Young Turks has grown into a multiplatform network of multiple channels?

Not in the slightest.

10. Cenk often talks about the TYT brand as “truth telling.” What does this mean to you as a member?

It means I can trust Cenk and the rest of the crew to not spin anything.

11.) Which TYT host would you get coffee with? Which one would you go to the bar with? Who would you have dinner with?

Coffee? Ana. Bar? Iadarola. Dinner? Cenk.

12. If you were a co-host on the show, which story would you cover? Why?

I would focus on fighting organized (and especially fundamentalist) religion. I have a very short fuse when it comes to that nonsense. Christianity, Islam, Judaism, LDS, Scientology (argh), etc., etc.

13. Have you ever communicated with other TYT fans? If so, how?

Yes, through Facebook.

14. Has the show convinced you to change your position on a particular issue?

I can’t recall. I tend to be pretty much in lockstep with most of Cenk’s positions.

15. Have you ever referred membership to anyone? If so, what did you say?

Yes.

Why is healthcare so expensive?
“This Won’t Hurt a Bit” is a short film that tells the all too familiar tale of American healthcare. A patient enters a hospital with a migraine headache, unaware of the costs his visit will incur on the path to a diagnosis. He learns much more than he bargained for in this comedy on unaffordable care.
