GYWO--The Watch List



Anthony Laurent·Uploaded on Dec 2, 2009



- See how easily we conformed? Even back in 2009 B.M.E. (Before Moscow-Eddie), we learned to get used to the idea that we must guard our speech -- even in jest -- because everyone knew even then that the NSA has no understanding of the concept of irony. They who preserve our freedoms, by subverting them.

BREAKING: The Rich Own Republicans AND Democrats



The Young Turks ·Published on Mar 24, 2014

*Just a few months ago, it looked like 2014 would be the year of the populist, with Democrats running on economic inequality, tea party Republicans bashing banks and newly minted New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio pledging to soak the rich with higher taxes.

That was so January. The terrain is now shifting fast as the 1 percent fights back hard and the effectiveness of the populist approach comes into question. Fresh off a bruising loss in Florida, the Democratic playbook for the midterms appears in need of a major rewrite — and the pro-business wing of the party is ready to draw up new plans. President Barack Obama in his budget once again floated a plan to raise taxes on Wall Street, but no one took it seriously.

And just days later, the president was raising money at the home of one of the wealthiest private equity executives in New York. Mayor de Blasio's hopes to increase taxes on the wealthiest got blown out by Wall Street's newest hero, New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo. And de Blasio is facing major heat from the rich over his opposition to charter schools...*

The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

- So introducing a banker tax in the morning that you know will never pass because your own party members will vote against, and then going to the banker's house that same night to raise money -- is this the Change?

What massive cajones, I must compliment your tailor s/he does excellent work......

Remember Fukushima: No to Nuclear Power In UK, Japan or Worldwide

There will be a series of events in London marking the 3rd anniversary of the Fukushima disaster on 11th March 2011. We hope you'll be able to join us for some or all of these events to say no to new nuclear in Britain and to commemorate those whose lives have been affected by the ongoing disaster in Japan.

CND's General Secretary, Kate Hudson said: 'Japanese officials have come clean that 160,000 people who were displaced in the wake of the disaster may never return to their homes.'

'The area remains a wasteland, where contamination is seeping out quicker than Tepco can control it. Miles O'Brien, a science correspondent, who recently visited the site, described it as "a post-apocalyptic landscape of abandoned towns, frozen in time". The decontamination operation -- overseen by Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco) -- is expected to last at least 30 years.'

'Three years on, it is both a moral obligation and a logical conclusion to heed the lessons of the Fukushima disaster. Nuclear power has shown itself to be a dirty, dangerous and expensive form of energy. Instead of subsidising nuclear power and building new reactors, we call on the British Government to get serious about renewable energy.'

'Without a genuine commitment -- shown through vastly increased funding for research, development and green energy infrastructure -- this government's superficial commitment to, in David Cameron's words, "green crap", is just that.'

Lesbian Knocks On Church Door, What Happens Is Priceless [VIDEO]



The Young Turks ·Published on Mar 21, 2014

"A lesbian has posted video of her asking an anti-gay church in Harlem, New York to stone her.

Pastor James David Manning, who helms the ATLAH World Missionary Church, last week proclaimed on his church sign: "Jesus would stone homos. Stoning is still the law."

The message includes a reference to Leviticus 20:13, which reads, "If a man lies with a man as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.""* Ana Kasparian, Jimmy Dore (TYTComedy), Desi Doyen (Green News Report) and John Iadarola (TYT University) break it down on The Young Turks.

Oregon’s Youngest Medical Cannabis Patient Is Now Cancer Free

Arjun Walia
Activist Post




Paediatric cannabis therapy is saving children. Awareness is the most important thing at this moment. The anti-tumor effects of cannabinoids and THC have been demonstrated for quite some time now. In the 1980s, cannabinoid receptors were discovered in the human brain, which made it obvious that our body has to synthesize something that binds to these receptors. Our bodies produce these compounds in our own endocannabinoid system, which is now known to be responsible for a number of biological functions. This is why the plant has such a wide therapeutic potential for multiple diseases, including cancer.

Brave Mykala had T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, it’s a very rare and aggressive form of childhood leukaemia. It accounts for 15-18% of childhood leukaemia cases. Her DNA was altered in some way, and it caused her bone marrow to start producing leukaemia white blood cells. She fell ill in May of 2012, and in July of 2012 doctors discovered a basketball-sized mass of lymphoblasts in her chest. Her mass was so large that she was not able to be sedated for risk of death from the pressure on her esophagus and heart.

Click on her name above to visit her website, click HERE to visit her Facebook page to stay up to date with everything that’s going on with her. So far, cannabis has helped tremendously. For more CE articles on Cannabis and Cancer, click HERE. We also covered a story of a teenage girl that used cannabis to treat her leukaemia, doctors in Toronto published the case study. Click HERE to read more about that.

Here is a summary of her treatment via her website (highlighted above):

This protocol is used to treat low risk leukemia patients (Mykayla is technically intermediate risk). It is a 3-5 chemotherapy drug and steroid combination that is done in 5 rounds lasting 2.5-3 years. The first 4 rounds are very intense and last for 6-8 months. The last round is called “maintenance”, it is done mainly from home and is far less damaging then the first 4 rounds. Mykayla will begin maintenance chemotherapy in February of 2013. Mykayla began chemotherapy on July 16th 2012 (she began steroid treatment on July 14th 2012). Mykayla’s Lymphoblast level was monitored daily for the first 8 days and weekly or twice weekly thereafter. Her lymphoblast level would go down after receiving chemotherapy but a few days after it would be back up and sometimes higher than before chemotherapy. The doctors were concerned. They spoke to us about the possibility of Mykayla having a bone marrow transplant due to the leukemia not going into remission with the chemotherapy. 95% of children with leukemia go into remission during the first 30 days of chemotherapy… the majority of them go into remission just a few days after receiving chemotherapy for the first time.

The oncologist did recommend cranial radiation in Mykayla’s case as she is intermediate risk, t-cell phenotype, and had a very small amount of leukemia cells in her brain and spinal fluid. Using cranial radiation to treat leukemia is a topic that is already controversial between the different cancer research groups… our family felt 100% confident in denying cranial radiation for Mykayla as she is in remission (it was for prophylactic/preventative reasons that it was recommended) and she has natural treatment methods that protect her from cancer and relapse.

Edward Snowden: Here's how we take back the Internet



TED ·Published on Mar 18, 2014

Appearing by telepresence robot, Edward Snowden speaks at TED2014 about surveillance and Internet freedom.

"Your rights matter," he say, "because you never know when you're going to need them." Chris Anderson interviews, with special guest Tim Berners-Lee.
