Cenk Uygur Files to Run For Congress in Katie Hill's District

Source: Mediaite.com

BREAKING: "The Young Turks" talk show host @cenkuygur filed today to run for Congress to replace resigned former Congresswoman Katie Hill. #CA25

Progressive pundit Cenk Uygur, founder and host at the digital news outlet The Young Turks, filed to run for Congress in California's 25 Congressional District, which is the seat that former Democratic Rep. Katie Hill resigned from last month after nude photos of her were published by a conservative blog and the Daily Mail.

The Cenk for Congress filing popped up on Wednesday on the FEC website, a day after Uygur endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders for president; he also teased some "dramatic news on Thursday" and told viewers to "stay tuned." But he is not commenting publicly on the matter, taking to Twitter shortly after news began circulating about his filed to state, "To all reporters: No comment."

The district, which covers parts of Los Angeles County and Ventura County, Uygur is eying was vacated on October 28 after her estranged husband leaked and wrote on Facebook about Hill's open marriage, her affair with a campaign staffer and an alleged affair with a congressional staffer, and her nude photos. The RedState.com blogger behind most of the Hill exposs was revealed by Mediaite to be a Republican campaign consultant who worked for two politicians who attempted runs against Hill, even serving as a campaign manager for a GOP candidate running for Hill's seat as recently as September.

51. The Establishment just were pushing someone to primary Tulsi Gabbard pretty much forcing her to

drop out of her House race. DCCC are blacklisting progressives that work on Progressive campaigns.

Progressives clash with DCCC leader in closed-door meeting

Leaders of the Congressional Progressive Caucus clashed Wednesday with the head of Democratic campaign arm over a new policy that they say hurts primary challengers nationwide — but which campaign officials have no plans to drop.

A meeting between Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chair Cheri Bustos and progressive members became heated as Bustos' liberal colleagues pressed her to reverse course on a just-announced rule barring Democratic consultants from working with primary challengers if they want to have business with the national campaign arm.

Progressive Caucus co-chairs Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) and Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash), and caucus member Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.), requested the meeting with Bustos to explain why the new policy issued to consultants last week created a "monopoly" of DCCC-sanctioned vendors, and would "blackball" too many talented vendors and consultants.

But Bustos made clear that she would not change the policy, which she argues is crucial to protecting Democratic incumbents after last fall’s huge gains in the House.

Progressives erupted this week after DCCC announced the policy cha

https://www.politico.com/story/2019/03/27/dccc-cheri-bustos-progressives-1241010

Let progressives & moderates run in primaries and let the best one win but they shouldn't rig (meaning money & pressure to drop out) it for one side.

Progressives riled by secret tape of Steny Hoyer asking candidate to drop out of race

House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer is in hot water with progressives after he was secretly recorded asking one of their preferred candidates to drop out of Colorado’s 6th congressional district primary.

The candidate, Levi Tillemann, taped the Maryland Democrat saying that he’s supporting the other candidate in the race, Jason Crow, “because a judgement was made very early on.”

Crow, a corporate lawyer and Army veteran, is on the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s “Red to Blue” list, a program that gives “top-tier” candidates organizational and fundraising support. Tillemann is an author, inventor and formerly an appointed adviser to the Energy Department during the Obama administration.

“So your position is, a decision was made very early on before voters had a say," Tillemann said. "That’s fine, because the DCCC knows better than the voters of the 6th Congressional District and we should line up that candidate.”

Hoyer said, “That’s certainly a consequence of our decision.”

58. I don't believe Hillary Clinton was correct & I prefer to focus on what is real with Russia & the

Republicans.

Her policy positions are to end regime change wars like Libya, Iraq, etc. Focus our war on Terror on the ideology that attacked the US on 9/11 wahabbism-salafi which includes ending military aid & standing up to Saudi Arabia. Slash the defense budget and use that money for health care, education, $15 minimum wage. As a low polling primary candidate she has to advertise on Youtube and take interviews with who she can. She is good at finding common ground which is what party leaders praised her for.

https://www.politico.com/2020-election/candidates-views-on-the-issues/tulsi-gabbard/

She only bashes the party establishment who treated her like a rising star but turned on her after she endorsed Bernie Sanders in the 2016 primary and the media treats her with more smears & disrespect (all the candidates have flaws that media could hammer on) so I don't blame her with being upset with the establishment.

She also voted in favor of the impeachment inquiry. She mostly votes along party lines.

103. The 9/11 families are suing Saudi Arabia and she is standing with them

Demanding more release on documents regarding Saudi Arabia. She was with a 9/11 victim family member when she filed in New Hampshire. Did you know Obama vetoed a bill that would have allowed 9-11 victims families to sue Saudi Arabia but Schumer overturned his veto?

She has she said she is Dove when it comes to regime change wars you know like Iraq when Saddam who didn't attack us on 9-11 but she is a hawk on the war on terror. Assad, Gaddafi, Saddam didn't attack us on 9-11 but wahabbi group like.al-Qaeda did it with Saudi Arabia's help.

She isn't perfect but her foreign policy is better than most of the candidates in the race.

Tulsi Gabbard Raised Negative $20 for Her House

snip// Ah Ha!

The absence of any fundraising or spending on her House race has left political observers with the impression that Gabbard may not return to Congress at all if her White House bid falls short. By contrast, during this quarter in the 2018 election cycle, Gabbard brought in more than $225,000 in net contributions, per federal filings.

79. Yeah.. Progressive Group Ousts Cenk Uygur Over Past Sexist Writing

The Justice Democrats ousted Cenk Uygur, one of its founding board members and a creator of progressive online network The Young Turks, following the Thursday revelation that Uygur had authored sexist blogposts in the early 2000s.

The left-leaning political organization, which Uygur and others established this year to support progressive primary challenges against Democratic incumbents in Congress, made the announcement Friday. The group also severed ties with David Koller, who co-founded The Young Turks with Uygur and served as Justice Democrats’ treasurer. A 2004 blogpost in which Koller used degrading language about women he and Uygur met on a road-trip surfaced this week as well.

“The words and conduct in Mr. Uygur and Mr. Koller’s posts degrade what it means to be a Justice Democrat,” Justice Democrats executive director Saikat Chakrabarti said in a Friday evening statement announcing the board’s decision to demand Uygur and Koller’s resignations. “We do not feel that Mr. Uygur is fit to lead or participate in an organization that truly believes women’s issues and the issues of black and brown people are all of our issues.”

The Justice Democrats board reached its decision to call for their departures after hearing Uygur’s “side of the story” and consulting with the political candidates the group has endorsed, Chakrabarti said.

65. Not a requirement, IIRC

Congressional districts get redrawn after every census: requiring representatives t move when their district changes would be a burden. There's precedent for running in a nearby district: when Garamendi won Tauscher's old seat he didn't live in the district either.

University of Washington political science professor George Lovell says when it comes to residency for congressional candidates, there is just one requirement.

“The U.S. Constitution just requires that the person be a resident of the state,” Lovell said.

Which makes this even more curious:

seat has something to do with outing her pictures. Please read your own post and stop with the conspiracy theories.

The RedState.com blogger behind most of the Hill exposs was revealed by Mediaite to be a Republican campaign consultant who worked for two politicians who attempted runs against Hill, even serving as a campaign manager for a GOP candidate running for Hill's seat as recently as September.

81. Progressive Group Ousts Cenk Uygur Over Past Sexist Writing

The Justice Democrats ousted Cenk Uygur, one of its founding board members and a creator of progressive online network The Young Turks, following the Thursday revelation that Uygur had authored sexist blogposts in the early 2000s.

The left-leaning political organization, which Uygur and others established this year to support progressive primary challenges against Democratic incumbents in Congress, made the announcement Friday. The group also severed ties with David Koller, who co-founded The Young Turks with Uygur and served as Justice Democrats’ treasurer. A 2004 blogpost in which Koller used degrading language about women he and Uygur met on a road-trip surfaced this week as well.

“The words and conduct in Mr. Uygur and Mr. Koller’s posts degrade what it means to be a Justice Democrat,” Justice Democrats executive director Saikat Chakrabarti said in a Friday evening statement announcing the board’s decision to demand Uygur and Koller’s resignations. “We do not feel that Mr. Uygur is fit to lead or participate in an organization that truly believes women’s issues and the issues of black and brown people are all of our issues.”

The Justice Democrats board reached its decision to call for their departures after hearing Uygur’s “side of the story” and consulting with the political candidates the group has endorsed, Chakrabarti said.

Here's an interesting observation from Hill's primary and election last year. Her ultimate general election opponent, Stephen Knight, got 51.8% of the vote, Hill only 20.7. He was the only republican, Hill and three Democrats split the remaining 48.2%, less than Knight alone.

In the General election Hill got 54.4% vs. 45.6% for Knight.

Primary vote:

Stephen Knight (R) 51.8% 61,411
Katie Hill (D) 20.7% 24,507
Bryan Caforio (D) 18.4% 21,821
Jess Phoenix (D) 6.4% 7,549
Mary Pallant (D) 2.7% 3,157

General Election:

Katie Hill (D) 54.45 133,209
Stephen Knight (R) 45.65 111,813

75. Selective forgiveness is an epidemic.

As far as the show name, it was a combination of him being of Turkish decent, and....

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Young_Turks

According to Cenk Uygur, the name of the show was chosen because it is a popular colloquialism. According to the American Heritage Dictionary, one definition of a Young Turk is "a young progressive or insurgent member of an institution, movement, or political party."



He as since retracted his position on the Armenian genocide with this statement:

Today, I rescind the statements I made in my Daily Pennsylvanian article from 1991 entitled, “Historical Fact of Falsehood? When I wrote that piece, I was a 21 year-old kid, who had a lot of opinions that I have since changed. Back then I had many political positions that were not well researched. For example, back in those days I held a pro-war rally for the Persian Gulf War. Anyone who knows me now knows that I am a very different person today.

I also rescind the statements I made in a letter to the editor I wrote in 1999 on the same issue. Back then I had a very different perspective and there were many things that I did not give due weight. On this issue, I should have been far, far more respectful of so many people who had lost family members. Their pain is heart-wrenching and should be acknowledged by all.

My mistake at the time was confusing myself for a scholar of history, which I most certainly am not. I don’t want to make the same mistake again, so I am going to refrain from commenting on the topic of the Armenian Genocide, which I do not know nearly enough about.

Thank you for being patient with me on this issue, though I might not have always merited it.


..........


But lets continue to demonize liberal voices because of some past mistake. Selectively of course. Joy Reid can be forgiven of past anti-LGBTQ statements, after an opoology. (which is good enough for me) Peaple evolve. Look at Obama, and the Clintons "evolution" on gay marriage. We could go into Biden's past and find positions that would not jive well today. But for all of these voices, we forgive them..BECAUSE THERE IS A GREATER CAUSE WE FIGHT FOR.

RW news media has an all-but monopoly. But we do all we can to help them out by finding any past fault in a pro-Democratic (Sanders supporter) voice and help to smear them into oblivion, because they don't support the same D candidate we do, or have a slightly different position on some issue. So sick of this.

76. I doubt it's coincidental that someone who denied the genocide happened to name his group...

...after the movement that perpetrated that genocide.

https://www.armenian-genocide.org/young_turks.html

The Young Turks were the perpetrators of the Armenian Genocide. The Young Turk Movement emerged in reaction to the absolutist rule of Sultan Abdul-Hamid (Abdulhamit) II (1876-1909). With the 1878 suspension of the Ottoman Constitution, reform-minded Ottomans resorted to organizing overseas or underground. The backbone of the movement was formed by young military officers who were especially disturbed by the continuing decline of Ottoman power and attributed the crisis to the absence of an environment for change and progress. Working secretly in unconnected clusters under the watchful eye of the Hamidian secret police, the Young Turks succeeded in overturning the rule of the autocratic sultan when the Ottoman armies in European Turkey openly supported the movement. Abdul-Hamid's reinstatement of constitutional and parliamentary rule in July 1908 ushered in a brief period of legalized political activity by a panoply of reformist Turkish parties as well as Armenian political and revolutionary organizations. The Young Turks earned further public support when their intervention was required to suppress the April 1909 counter-revolution staged by the palace.

At the center of the Young Turk Revolution stood the Committee of Union and Progress (CUP) (Ittihad ve Terakki Jemiyeti) formed in 1895. Its members came to be known as Ittihadists or Unionists. The most ideologically committed party in the entire movement, the CUP espoused a form of Turkish nationalism which was xenophobic and exclusionary in its thinking. Its policies threatened to undo the tattered fabric of a multi-ethnic and multi-religious society. Taking advantage of the political confusion reigning in the aftermath of the First Balkan War which the Ottoman Empire lost in 1912 to its former subject states, the CUP seized power in a coup d'etat in January 1913. As it led the empire to a partial recovery in the Second Balkan War, the CUP monopolized political power domestically by bringing the Parliament completely under its influence. It also began to steer away from the long-held Ottoman foreign policy of alliances with Great Britain and France, and forged a stronger military cooperation with Germany. Moreover, the CUP compensated for the Ottoman retreat in the Balkans by promoting Pan-Turkism, an expansionist program designed to challenge Russia in its southern tier. By the time World War I broke out in August 1914, the CUP constituted a chauvinistic band which had subordinated the Ottoman state to its Turkist ideology. It also propelled the country into war against its better interests by entering into a secret accord with Germany.

To consolidate Turkish rule in the remaining territories of the Ottoman Empire and to expand the state into the so-called Turanian lands in the east, most held by Iran and Russia, the CUP devised in secret a program for the extermination of the Armenian population. From the viewpoint of Ittihadist ideology and its new and ambitious foreign policy, the Armenians represented a completely vulnerable population straddling an area of major strategic value for its Pan-Turanian goals. Ottoman misrule had made the Armenians, a prosperous minority despite its political disadvantages, sympathetic to Russia. To the Ittihadists, the global crisis of 1914 represented a rare opportunity to change the fortunes of the Ottoman state and to use the cover of war to embark upon a policy of both internal and external social engineering the likes of which had not been attempted or imagined. Once again they gambled on the element of surprise, subterfuge, and radical daring, this time against a civilian minority population.

Even though the initial advance of Ottoman forces in 1914 into Russia and Iran did not result in a permanent expansion, on the whole the Ottoman armies held Allied forces in check until 1916 and did not capitulate until 1918. The main thrust of the Armenian Genocide, however, was implemented within the first year of the war, years ahead of any imminent collapse. While the mass deportations of the civilian Armenian population was carried out in the spring and summer of 1915 and were completed by the fall, the systematic slaughter of the Armenians had started earlier with the murder of the able-bodied males already drafted into the Ottoman armed forces. By expropriating the movable and immovable wealth of the Armenians, the CUP also looked upon its policy of genocide as a means for enriching its coffers and rewarding its cohorts. The elimination of a commercially viable minority fulfilled part of the nationalist program to concentrate financial power in the hands of the state and promote greater Turkish control over the domestic economy.

He's Turkish.
The "Young Turks" definition of a progressive fighter
and maybe even partly a dig at the time at those that were critical of his stance on the Armenian genocide. I can see that kind of stubbornness from him.

No one is perfect. Yet some we forgive, because we can also re-evalute that people evolve. Clinton and Warren were once Republicans.
And also re-evaluate their importance to our side to fight against the RW scourge. And weigh a continued ostracization and boycott against the fact they are on our side on the major and important issues.

Being funded Russia Today
His previous support of Reagan and Bush
His pro-life stance
His ridicule of feminism
His claim that Clarence Thomas was treated unfairly

His racist and sexist comments on blogs that ultimately forced him to resign from Justice Democrats only 11 months after co-founding it.

86. Whooosh 2.0

Why do some scoff at "purists" when it suits them, and then shout, "Not pure!" when it suits them?

Why is it so difficult to just accept that humans themselves are not "pure", especially when we delve into every past opinion of every journalist and politician. I've given examples above. If we want to defeat the "racist fucks, Russian interference, and the LIES" we need to allow big tent access, for those that want the same outcome as we do. My gawd I swear there is more support for Republicans like Frum and Wilson, guys who will immediately flip, unlike Cenk, back to supporting the Republican party as soon as Trump is not a candidate anymore.

Does Cenk want to defeat the "racist fucks, Russian interference, and the LIES"? And elect a Democrat? If the answer is yes, then please. At least do the decent thing of " if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything".

The Young Turks help to get out the Democratic vote, especially among younger people. Can't you see the value in that?
