Climb aboard the ship of truth with Hereward Fenton at the helm, as we plough through uncharted waters of geo-politics, scandals, cover-ups, war and tyranny.
Is a meringue pie in the face an assault or a political act? Today we look at this question in the context of the pie assault of QANTAS CEO Alan Joyce.
There is a long tradition of "pieing" as a political act. Bill Gates was famously "pied" in 1998. Yes it's illegal, but many people who get pied are big enougn not to press charges. Not so in the case of Mr Joyce.
We also look at the issue of "universal basic income" as a proposal for alleviating the problems of long term unemployment.
In today's show we analyse a letter by Pope Francis to the participants in the Plenary Session of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences in April 2017.
This letter contains a savage attack on libertarian philosophy which is tantamount to a repudiation of the most basic values of moder liberal democracy. The basic message is in line with a Marxist / collectivist viewpoint which percieves individual rights as a threat to the greater good of the greater number.
It is hard to see how these words accord with the basic teachings of Christianity:
Finally, I cannot but speak of the serious risks associated with the invasion, at high levels of culture and education in both universities and in schools, of positions of libertarian individualism. A common feature of...
As ANZAC Day approaches, many Australians have once again watched on, shaking their collective heads, as their political leaders display the constitution of a wet lettuce when it comes to resisting their American political overlords.
Australia’s Foreign Minister, Julia Bishop, spoke tough when asked about Australia’s position on Nth Korea’s missile tests.
Indeed, she could be mistaken for any American Warhawk Politician, except for her refined Australian accent.
But, accent aside, Bishop parrots the US Foreign Policy well and, projects it with a kind of refined, constipated belligerence.
The way she threatened Nth Korea would’ve delighted her US counterparts, once they’d been reminded of who she was and, in what hemisphere Australia was located.
In a world...
In today's show we examine the facts surrounding the US airstrike against Syria which took place on April 7 2017.
Today we examine the evidence that Milo Yiannopoulos endorsed or excused pedophilia. We examine this issue in the context of our ongoing study of gay culture (see previous episode on pizzagate).
In his conversation with Joe Rogan, Yiannopoulos suggests that inappropriate sexual relations between "very young" men and adults is common among the rich and famous Hollywood set with which he has mixed.
Yiannopoulos also appears to be comfortable with the fact that he was molested as a 13 year old, describing it as a sort of coming of age experience, and asserts that this is not unusual among gay men generally.
Yiannopoulos describes laws regarding the sexual abuse of minors as applying an "arbitrary and oppressive idea of consent which totally destroys the...
Today we welcome Brendon O'Connell back to the show. Brendon was convicted in 2010 under controversial anti-discrimination laws after posting a series of Youtube videos depicting Israel as a "racist, homicidal regime".
After his release, Brendon continued with his activism and was charged again, but fled to Iran while on bail. He joins us today from Kuala Lumpur.
Brendon talks of the infiltration of Australian security networks, telcos, banking and medical systems in Australia by Israeli intelligence operatives. He also talks about his experiences in Iran and his understanding of the political currents in that country.
Finally, Brendon goes through some of the issues regarding legislation in Australia which threatens freedom of speech and his intention of...
Iran, with the 4th largest oil reserves in the world, is a country which has been highly significant for the geoplitical strategies of Western powers since the end of World War II. The West has employed various tactics in its attempt to maintain control, including politcal subversion, destabilisation, installation of puppet leaders, sanctions, the lifting of sanctions and veiled threats of war.
Today we take a look at the history of Iran's relations with the West and we evaluate the recent assertion by US President Donald Trump that Iran is the "world's number 1 state sponsor of terrorism".
We also reflect upon the interesting observation that each successive wave of extremist ideologies and militant political movements which have emerged from the Middle East has...
In the wake of recent statements from Donald Trump on torture, today's show delves into the issue of torture in depth.
What is torture? What is its real purpose? What is its connection to psychopathology? How does the glamourised Hollywood treatment of the subject distract us from understanding the real issues?
In today's show we reflect on the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States.
We examine some of the key issues of contention in Trump's policy plans and review some of the earlier TNRA shows covering Trump's campaign.
Other issues covered in today's show include the concept of "universal basic income" and its possible connection to the rollout of a cashless welfare card as part of a plan to eliminate cash globally.
Today we look at the recent volatility of bitcoin and we probe a little deeper into questions about the real nature of money.
Bitcoin is certainly a disruptive technology, but is it really any more reliable that fiat currency as a medium of exchange? Will bitcoin ever be stable?
The topic of gender and gender theory is discussed in the show, with a focus on what appears to be an attempt by activists to erase the distinction between men and women completely.
Also in the show, we look at the Australian federal government's plan to roll out cashless welfare cards and what that signifies for the future of money and how this will ultimately affect our privacy.
"War is essentially an evil thing. Its consequences are not confined to the belligerent states alone, but affect the whole world. To initiate a war of aggression, therefore, is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole."
- International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg
Israel is a state founded in terrorism and built on wars of aggression. This is an uncontroversial fact, yet one which is rarely addressed in public commentary on the "Israel Question".
Today we probe into some of the neglected facts about the birth of Israel. We demonstrate that the techniques employed by Israel's founding fathers have much in common with Islamic...
Today we look at the "war on Christmas" which has been waged by faceless bureaucrats all over the Western world, manifest in the spontaneous removal of references to the Christian basis of this holiday season.
This campaign to remove references to Christ's birth is part of a larger trend in what is called "inclusiveness" - censoring all cultural symbols which are seen to be indicative of the oppression of special interest groups and minorities.
This trend has been discussed previously on this show in the context of "cultural Marxism" - a phrase which is used to describe a covert political agenda to transform society by altering people's behaviour through new moral injunctions and sometimes legislation.
The safe schools coalition anti-bullying program is one such...
Mark Zuckerberg promotes internet.org
Today we take a look at the truth about fake news, which is very different to the definition of that term which has been offered to us by mainstream sources.
There are many ironies in all this, the biggest being perhaps that the main purveryors of truly fake news are those organisations which are now railing against it.
We examine the way in which the truly fake news which has been the mainstay of western media for generations has actually been part of an agenda to create a completely fake reality, within which people can be made to believe almost anything that is fed to them by "trusted sources".
We further outline 3 techniques of "manufactuing" reality through control of the flow of...
The fact that mainstream media has declared that the entire collection of alternative media posts which go under the hash tag "Pizzagate" are "fake news" is perhaps a good reason to actually take it seriously.
In today's show we delve into this topic with an aim to highlight what we definitively know rather than engage in speculation and conjecture. This leads us into a discussion of the imagery which has been advanced as evidence of a pedophile ring from the angle of psychopathology.
We examine the concepts of paraphilia and fetishism and how they relate to the images which were allegaedly pulled from the instagram page of the owner of a pizzeria in Washington DC - an influential Democrat lobbyist and friend of Hillary Clinton and John...
Categories: [ Liberalism ]
We live in a time where political philosophies are becoming increasingly polarized and where labels such as "alt-right" and "liberal" are used with little care or understanding of either the etymology or the history of these words in English.
Understanding the history of a word - its original meaning as well as the connotations and colourings that have grown around it - enriches our understanding of history itself.
Today we probe into the meaning of the word "liberalism" in an effort to understand both what is good and what is bad about it.
One variant of liberalism, known as "social liberalism" has become synonymous with western democracies, and has become an inflexible ideology in those societies. The malignant aspect of social liberalism in the West derives...

RECLAIM AUSTRALIA IS DOOMED
Although I agree with many of their ideas, the forces reigned against RAM are too great, violent, statist and reactionary for them to remain a non-political, broad based, multi-ethnic, community protest group for much longer. The Left and their Antifa nihilist fellow travelers are already pushing them towards the extreme Right, by calling them racists and Islamophobes and so on. Whilst the extreme Right have aligned themselves with RAM. With fascists of the Left and Right pressuring them they will not be able to remain beyond the Left-Right divide and will inevitably move to the Right - the extreme Right. Which is already happening. A development which will alienate decent Australians of all ethnic backgrounds many of whom currently support them.
The RAM leadership have already established open alliances with the Patriotic Front (the ape in the photograph is a Patriot Front supporter at a recent Richmond demonstration) Australia First and Golden Dawn, a Greek neo-Nazi party. Members of these collectivist groups are currently attending RAM demonstrations all over Australia.
There is a real need in Australia to establish a political movement beyond the Left-Right divide and their vested interests, a movement that questions the current direction Australia is heading i.e. the direction the Left/Right and their extremes would like to take it; that questions the efficacy of state sponsored multiculturalism, as opposed to a proper, non-discriminatory immigration policy; that questions the validity of political correctness; that is politically neutral, anti-war and pro environment; that is opposed to all collectivists ideologies (fascisms of the Left and Right); that would dismantle the power pyramids of corporations and banks and their ability to impact on government; that would dissolve all anti-terror laws and all laws that impose on the rights and freedom of the individual and the people.

I second Keith’s assertion that Mike Holt from Restore Australia is very much a fake. He bangs on about Halaal being a scam and money maker for Islam (and no I don’t support Halaal whatsoever), but makes excuses for its counterpart Kosher as being a somehow legitimate. Double standards? When I confronted him about this fact he went off on a convoluted tirade about Israel being some sort of “Bastion of Democracy” in the middle east…Really!, I will leave that one up to the readers to decide on. I found that MH came across as disingenuous to say the least.

Without doubt, TNR is one of the best, if not the best alternative news source on the net. Which doesn’t mean Herewood is always right. His job, I believe, is to present the facts as he sees them as an objectively as possible, without fear or favor. For this, he has my respect and support. But I believe he needs to be careful and to think a little deeper about the problems of “racism,” in Australia. He has labelled the Reclaim Australia Movement as racist. I’m wondering if his objectivity is a little weak on this point, a little without foundation.
Of course all political movements have its fringe groups and individuals. We make a distinction between, for example, a Muslim and a fundamentalist Muslim (Islamist), and by so doing we don’t claim that all Muslims are blood thirsty fanatics. If its good for the Muslims, then its good for RAM, which is bound to attract a few lunatics and real racists. But to brand the entire movement as “racist” is wrong; it is the same ploy that is used by the mainstream media and its left-wing, establishment Marxist boot boys.
One of the first things I noticed when i attended a RAM rally recently were the amount of non-white people in attendance, including Aboriginals. In fact the main banner of RAM contains an Australian flag and an Aboriginal flag. Speakers at their rallies have included Jews, Arabs, Indians, Aboriginals, Chinese and so on. What does this tell you? Is this really a fascist-Nazi-racist movement whose stated aim are the eradication and exclusion of other cultures, in place of some sort of Aussie white Reich, or is this just propaganda that is being propagated by the left for their own political interests. Consequently, we all know where the culmination of their politics have led, historically speaking, which are to the imposition of terror and dictatorships.
We can be thankful for small mercies, in terms of the Left, which today mostly tends to attract collectivists, establishmentarians and the privileged sons and daughters of the upper bourgeoisie, who seems to share one thing in common, nativity….

Mike Holt from Restore Australia is very much a fake. He hasn’t even been citizen for but a few years. But, he makes out like he was born there. ALSO - this guy spent 30 years in Thailand working shady businesses. I would wager that his primary purpose in being an activist is that he wants to make money off selling merchandise.

good to see you putting out some new shows heraward
freely the banana girl is to a certain extent a troll, as is her boyfriend durian rider. they have been trolling the fitness community on youtube for some time… and yes they are extreme but they are also trolls. They use their trolling to spread their message. currently, another dude called vegangains is trolling the fitness community as well.
i am a vegetarian, and it was seeing this documentary on the pork industry that started me on the vegetarian path. for anyone interested, its pretty off the charts disturbing and its australian as well. its pretty much made by dudes breaking into pork farms and filming what they find
Would the world be better if people cared where their food came from? probably, they might then care about other things too
do you become a better person if you dont eat meat? i feel like a better person mainly because animals aren’t being hurt because of me. i dont feel humans have to eat meat really… or at least not much. How can you watch that documentary on pork, know that that is pretty much whats going on and turn a blind eye to it? I think its basic empathy and just saying well ‘i like bacon so yeah’ is in my opinion wrong and i can see freleys point of view to an extent. In my opinion, at least these people believe in something. i see my money as my vote, henceforth im ethical as to what i do with it. free range eggs became mainstream for exactly this reason… although im pretty sure woolies and coles lobbied the state to change the definition of the word ‘free range’ at some point. I dont eat beef because the amount of resources that go into growing a cow are pretty crazy. Think about how much grass that cow needs to eat before it is harvested and how much space it requires. think of how many vegies you could grow in the same space with the same amount of water. lamb? comon, think about what your doing here… but that being said i think most vegans are total loons. People like freeley should be advocating for the destruction of lions and tigers, as lions and tigers murder other animals in truly horrific style. if we humans are smart enough to not harm animals, then we should be stopping the animals that harm other animals from existing. Freeley also kills birds when she flies in aeroplanes so she is a hypocrite.
feminism is one of the biggest problems in society today and although there is some valid historical basis to it, the liberation of the human female from their biology is in my opinion largely a product of the technological advance of humans. sufferagettes where never machine gunned on the streets, unlike the men that where drafted and sent off to war to die just a few years earlier. as technology has advanced, women have advanced as well, however now its going way too far and is pretty blatantly anti male in many respects. i view feminism in its modern context as a tool of the social marxists that really isnt doing society a great deal of good at this time. its screwing up gender dynamics and is wrecking women and men for each other. i see it as low frequency, lowest common denominator idiocy, just like a lot of the the race baiting ‘is this racist’ stuff getting around that is being perpetuated pretty much as a distraction, divide and conquer strategy by the power elite. idiots love this kind of bicker and beef… it would be funny if it wasn’t so serious
I agree with steven friar. gods a maniac
good show… keep making them

Almost two months since the last broadcast! How the hell can you expect people to donate when you don’t broadcast? Looks like the ship of truth has sprung a leak. This broadcast has been part of my life almost since its inception…it is one of the few alternative news sources that hasn’t gone off the deep end, by dilution credible information with crap e.g. Fairdinkum Radio and Info Wars…Pittard started FR with some incredibly interesting material, but then he flipped…Today he sounds like a fundamentalist preacher, the Christian equivalent to a Fanatical Islamist. As an atheist, I think he’s really ###### up a potentially good show. As for Info Wars, all they would have to do to improve is dump Alex Jones, what a shit-for-brains. I reckon Jones and Pittard are allowed to proliferate, because they’re so stupid and harmless. I suppose they have some entertainment value, and along with David Icke are living examples of how low the alternative media has sunk. Truth News Radio is, or should I say was, way ahead of them all ahead of them all in terms of credibility How sad that its come to this.
