  1. Why do countries need presidents? I think they would be better without presidents.

  2. About Venezuela and the kind of coverage that Tyt is doing about it. The man you called “far wing president backed up by USA” he is actually a liberal, son of a taxi driver. And he is acting by law, THIS IS NOT A COUP. Did you know that? I just found out but I don’t spread news in the internet to millions of viewers.
    Check this out. Guys, it’s not a matter of right and left.

  3. libertarian ideology has always just been the cover for plutocracy and at times straight up fascism

  4. This is very educational. Please keep up the great work, Cenk and Ana. Thank you. I remember that years ago in Uruguay that AID, Agency for International Development, was undercover as an NGO(non-governmental organization) that helped the poor but was really a dangerous USA subversive organization. There was a movie about it:

    State of Siege (1972)
    Showing all 2 items
    Jump to: Summaries (1) Synopsis (1)
    In Uruguay in the early 1970s, an official of the US Agency for International Development(used as a front for training foreign police in counterinsurgency methods) is kidnapped by a group of urban guerillas. Using his interrogation as a backdrop, the film explores the often brutal consequences of the struggle between Uruguay's government and the leftist Tupamaro guerillas.

    The synopsis below may give away important plot points.
    Synopsis… (copy/pasted below)
    This closely follows a true account of Cold War US black-ops in South America preceding Operation Condor launched by Augusto Pinochet in Chile following the 1973 CIA-orchestrated coup against President Allende and his death by probable assassination. Costa-Gavros also directed Missing, a film about this event starring Jack Lemmon and Sissie Spacek.

    The historical figure played by Yves Montand in State of Siege was Dan Mitrioni, a former Indiana police chief working in Montevideo within USAID's Office of Public Safety, which in fact was training civilian police in kidnapping, torture and assassinations of suspected Communists parallel to School of the Americas training of South American military personnel. The film opens with the American found dead in the back of a car. We subsequently learn how and why this came about. The Tupamoros, a popular Uruguay insurgency that robbed the rich and gave to the poor, had captured and interrogated the American "trainer" at length about his actions and motivations. The captive-captors interactions that take the form of a trial are the heart of the film, revealing the motives and objectives of the insurgents and the defensive rationalizations underlying violent American interference in Latin American governments. The American never breaks and confesses, so they are left with no alternative but to execute him for his many capital crimes.

    Both Contra-Gavras films provide important history lessons that Americans receive from neither their schools nor their media. Missing was a major box office success, but State of Siege provides the clearest understanding of US Cold War operations and their impacts on targeted societies.

  5. Who tried to drop that u.s. made drone on maduro at his parade several months ago? I wonder????

  6. What I don't understand is why some countries (like Uruguay and Chile) being ruled by left parties, US doesn't mess with them. Or Maybe because they are true democracies not ruled by corrupted politicians, so they don't have to use USA as the scapegoat? SMH

  7. Cenk Uygur, I'm from Petare (biggest slum of Latin America) , and I am a US Citizen too. I left my country because of these criminals ruling our country. I know what's going on there. I'm not a MAGA fan, but on this matter, I support US government, 100% like majority of Venezuelan people (inside/outside).

  8. Great topic, but wish you called in experts on things like this. Ones that can knowledgeably compare this to the US reaction to the DRC election.

  9. Trump: "Venezuela is not very far away". But Puerto Rico was? Let's worry about Puerto Rico first.

  10. America has sent $20 million in aid, and medicine, food, and supplies are coming in from Columbia in the West and Brazil in the East.
    Help is on the way Venezuela despite Maduro trying to stop all aid.

  11. So the same people who say we should support BDS say that we need to leave Venezuela because it’s “none of our business”

  12. This is without a doubt the most DISGUSTING coverage of the venezuelan crisis in the american media. Absolutely appalling. This is not a coup, Cenk. The insanity on the left-leaning media is nightmarish.

  13. Lol always supporting American imperialism….liberals are a joke…

    Maduro should chop off the heads of the traitor slaves of America

  14. Other little thing, Venezuela has NEVER stop selling oil to the US, a tuslly is our best customer, for all their antiamerican rhetoric, they have never stop doing business with the States so, forget about the blokade América has on Veenuels becaaue they don't, they just did, the sanctions were on high raking official not at Venezuela's hability to do business with America.

  15. No, this is not a Coup, Guaidó is DEFINITELY NOT a right winger you have no idea of what you are saying, Voluntad Pupular is the most progressive party in Venezuela, and this is a CONSTITUTIONAL TRANSISSION OF POWER.

  16. This is NOT about left of right wing, this is NOT about ideology… Juan Guaidó is the leader of the most progressive party in the country, Voluntad Popular belongs to the Internacional Socialist.

  17. The U.S. Government should be in charge of the amount of cleavage shown on TYT

  18. What happened in Venezuela is not a coup. Since the may 2018 elections were not legitimate, the resulting president of those elections is not legitimate either. According to the Venezulean Constitution, when there is no legitimate president, the head of the General Assembly, in this case Mr. Guaido, MUST become the temporary president of the country until new and fair elections take place.

  19. I did not know I was watching fox news.unsubscribe.

  20. Every time I look at Trumps Toupee I  can't help but to think of some of the cartoon scenes, where a bomb explodes in there faces, and the concussion blows their face  away, and their hair straight out on end.  But in Trumps case it looks like a bomb exploded in the back of his head, blowing all of his hair to the front, and from a side view, giving him a 1957 Heavy Chevy Look.

  21. I think the elections are legitimate.

  22. The opposition in Venezuela are racists inciting violence, hanging and burning people, mostly black chavistas.

  23. The opponents that were banned were the ones who plotted coups and assassinations against Chavez and Maduro

  24. The Vox video ignored the obstructionism of the National Assembly.

  25. You should look into why the price of oil dropped when it did and ask why would the Saudi Arabian government unnecessarily increase oil production, therefore dropping the price of oil, and taking a heavy loss to their government coffers. At the time Saudi Arabia increased production oil was around (or maybe over) $100/barrel and quickly plummeted to eventually reach $28/barrel when the world’s demand for oil did not justify such a dramatic increase in production and OPEC did not feel the need to increase production. (Yes OPEC is a different can of worms.) The countries this price drop harmed the most at the time was Iran, Russia, and Venezuela.

  26. Foro Penal Venezolano’s Report: registered 791 arrests for protesting between January21 and January26 in Venezuela. 632 arrests on Jan23 (The highest number of arrests in a day at least since 1999) WHO HAVE THE WEAPONS AND USE THEM AGAINST THE PEOPLE? Maduro and his military squad!

  27. 1. A boycott of an election isn't proof of anything. If you boycott many times govt supporters stay home because they figure we already won why bother voting. Even with the Boycott 50% showed up to vote which is higher turn out than the US without a boycott. Maduro is 100% legit president.
    2. Maduro fighting with the nationally assembly it is because they are actively trying to collapse the country. (that breaks their oath of office)
    But thank for trying for nuance
