In today's show we reflect on Donald Trump's presidential nomination speech, with a focus on his promise to bring "law and order" to the United States and what that really means.
We further reflect on the past 15 years of US history which has seen successive waves of law and order measures, leading only to increasing violence both domestically and around the world.
We propose that, unless Trump is prepared to confront and reform the abuse of power and the excessive use of force both within the US and globally, then Trump is simply going to lead the people of the United States ever deeper into tyranny.
We also take a look at the ongoing legal debacle over digital piracy in the wake of the arrest of the CEO of Kickass Torrents - one of the world's largest...
Sniffer dog operations at Central Railway and Boy Charlton public swimming pool (inset).
Police sniffer dog operations have become the scourge of public transport in Sydney in recent years. These warrantless intrusions upon privacy are conducted regularly at major transport hubs, bus stops, bars and pubs and even public swimming pools in NSW.
As explained by our guest in the 2nd hour, these operations violate a central principle of common law and an internationally recognised human right, namely the presumption of innocence. Hapless commuters must prove to the police they are not guilty if a dog indicates the presence of banned substances by emptying their pockets and submitting to body searches. And it gets worse: sniffer dogs have been shown in studies to...
Today we take a look at new evidence that Australia is turning into a miserable totalitarian hell hole.
We bring you a collection of stories which demonstrate both the pettiness and the obscenity of Australia's poisonous ruling elite. Cyclists forced to carry ID, picnic goers forced to get permits, sniffer dogs at public pools, forced vaccination, paternalistic and idiotic laws regarding alcohol are just a few of the symptoms of this incipient fascist takeover.
Australia has crossed a line which was crossed by Germany in the 1930s. It is not a pretty picture.
These words of Martin Luther King are perhaps more relevant today than ever before:
One may well ask: "How can you advocate breaking some laws and obeying others?" The answer lies in the fact that...
In today's show we review the outstanding new documentary, Letters From Generation Rx, by independent film maker Kevin P Miller.
This film is a follow up to Generation Rx, released in 2008, which chronicles the sordid history of the anti-depressant drug industry through the experiences of families and individuals whose lives were destroyed by it.
This film goes deeper into the same territory, and was inspired by the many letters Kevin received from drug victims after the first film came out.
I found the film mesmerising, as much by the sheer film making skill as by the content of the material it contains. Kevin's fim brings these oral histories to life in a way that is quite original, through interviews and beautiful photography.
The film conveys the...
In today's show we look at Australias new metadata retention laws which cleared the Senate last week.
We examine the "special protections" for journalists which are built-in to the Act. We pose the question: why is there a limited exemption for journalists while other citizens including professionals like lawyers and doctors who handle sensitive data are not exempt? We further highlight the fact that these "special protections" have no force at all against ASIO investigations, thus making a mockery of the whole concept of protection.
It is true that powers granted to the government under this Act are indeed a mere formalisation of the exising status quo, but this highlights the fact that spying on the population is now considered totally acceptable. Once...
Today we return to look at the vaccine debate from the perspective of the wider struggle of individual rights against encroaching state power. Does the collective have rights over the individual? Can the collective reasonably demand the sacrifice of the individual for the greater good? It would seem that the mainstream answer to this question is "yes".
We focus on a shocking case of 15 child deaths in Syria from an alleged "tainted vaccine" to highlight the very real threat posed by mass vaccination programs.
We also take a look at the media coverage of the Disneyland measles epidemic, and the way this is being used as a trigger to bring in a mandatory measles vaccine.
In today's show we explore interlocking questions about crypto-currencies, personal privacy and the freedom to buy and sell anonymously.
Till now, one of the main attractions of crypto-currencies has been the ability to use them completely anonymously, but as Bitcoin threatens to go mainstream with ATMs and debit cards, we are seeing an attempt by the establishment to tie transactions to biometric identification.
In the second hour of today's show I am joined by Josh Jackson for a discussion on these themes.
During the show I provide my own critique of the concept of fighting crime through surveillance and failsafe methods of identification, and I put it to you that the increasing intrusion into our private life represented by these "security measures" is...
Today we are joined in the first hour by Dr. Don Maisch, the founder of EMFacts Consultancy, which has produced a wide range of reports and papers dealing with various health issues related to human exposure to electromagnetic radiation.
From the website:
This website was established in 1997 as an independent source of information on the possible health and safety issues arising from human exposure to Electromagnetic Energy (EME).
This consists of both 50 and 60 Hertz (Hz) Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) from our use of electricity and Radio-frequency/Microwave (RF/MW) Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) from telecommunications.
This site is designed to be utilized as a resource by individuals, groups, organisations and communities who are trying to em...
In tonight's show we bring you a menagerie of weirdness as we plough through the many bizarre themes which dominate the news on this Halloween night.
We look at recent developments in the Julian Assange case, with a Parliamentary Briefing on the case now in progress.
In the 2nd hour am joined once again by Josh Jackson, and our special subject is that of "security" - what does it really mean and do large scale security measures end up creating more problems than they solve?
"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable" - these famous words of JFK are more resonant today than ever.
What can we do to bring about peaceful revolution? How can we stir the masses to stand up against the bullies and the tyrants? That is the theme of today's show.
In particular we look at the unfolding catastrophe in Libya and, on the domestic front, the rising tide of anger against the Labor government over the carbon tax which is due to be passed into legislation during this sitting of parliament.
Is it time to take action? If so, what form should that take?
This is an open question and we welcome comments and suggestions from our listeners.

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.
