Today TNRA welcomes Tempe Harvey to the show.

Tempe Harvey, who has a Master of Laws, practised for 11 years as a solicitor and currently works full-time in her role as a mother of four children in Brisbane.

Her interest in politics led her to found Kids First Parent Association of Australia in 2009, to lobby the federal government to end childcare funding discrimination against the majority of families opting for parent care.

On the economic front, Tempe is dedicated to defeating both the Carbon Tax and the political party behind it, The Greens. To this end, she has designed a simple, highly effective, low cost campaign to do so.

Tempe has developed some excellent techniques for creating mass awareness, and she discusses some of these on the...

Tonight we report on the latest carbon protest which took place in Marrickville, in inner Sydney today. We are joined during the show by Anne Easby who was at the protest and who filed this report earlier today:

Five hundred people marched on Anthony Albanese's office today to protest about his insult to the Convoy of No Confidence on 22 August 2011.  The rally and march were organised by Consumer and Taxpayer Association...

Convoy of No Consequence - March and Rally

31 August 2011

By Hereward Fenton

Categories: [ Carbon Tax, Climate Change ]


A march will begin at the corner of Marrickville and Livingstone Roads, Marrickville tomorrow at 12 noon to protest about Mr Albanese's derogatory comments concerning the Convoy of No Confidence in Canberra on 22nd August.

The protesters will march peacefully behind the "Democracy is Dead" coffin and meet in front of Mr Albanese's office at 334a Marrickville Road, Marrickville.

The purpose of the protest is to tell Mr Albanese that the comments he made in Parliament about the Convoy were offensive and unacceptable to those Australians who travelled thousands of kilometres to Canberra from every corner of Australia.  They were also offensive to the thousands of Australians who supported the convoy with food and...

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible

Convoy of no confidence

"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.

Some CO2 lies

16 August 2011

CO2 molecule

From Malcolm Roberts, of the Galileo Movement:

Measurements of global CO2 levels used by the UN reveal that CO2 levels are a result of temperature, not a cause. CO2 does not drive temperature. Temperature determines CO2 levels. Yet the government and Greens tells us the opposite. Saying CO2 drives temperature is the biggest … lie.

Each molecule of carbon dioxide combines an atom of carbon with two atoms of oxygen. Calling Nature’s invisible gas 'carbon pollution'—a black solid—is a … lie.

CO2 is less than 0.04% of Earth’s air. Less than 4 x 1/100th’s of one percent. Scientifically, it’s called a trace gas because there’s bugger-all of it. Calling it pollution is a … lie.
Of Earth’s annual production of carbon dioxide human activity (industry,...

TNRA reports on the latest carbon rally

If it's Brown, send it down!Tonight we bring you the full audio (and video) from last week's carbon rally in Hyde Park, with some discussion and commentary.

The gathering at Hyde Park was very rowdy - many people have a high level of anger about the current situation and this is evident in the tone of the crowd attending the speeches and some of the posters.

The policies of this government are creating profound social tensions which may indeed erupt in violence and I think we should be under no illusions about that possibility. The problem is vastly exacerbated by the collusion of the ABC and other mainstream media sources in denying that there is a credible opposition to the carbon tax.

The exception of course is the Murdoch media, and one wonders whether the recent Fairfax...

No Carbon Tax Protest: photos

Categories: [ Carbon Tax, Climate Change ]

Some random thoughts as we steam towards the biggest social and economic blunder of the millennium.

Calculations about what people will pay on average per week are speculative and have no guarantees attached. That’s clearly just a marketing gimmick. What we should be more concerned about is where all this money is going and the way it could be mis-managed, rorted and wasted.

Think of  “pink bats” if you want a precedent.

So, we are being asked to hand over billions of tax-payer dollars to an already bloated and corrupt bureucracy. The government promises that the average person will be “no worse off”, while at the same time insisting that we must experience “pain” in order to change behaviour.

That’s called a “double bind”. They are messing with our...

On 4th July 2011 the Greens will control nine seats in the Federal Senate, giving them the balance of power and ushering in a new era of enviro-politics.

Tonight Josh Jackson and I wade into the battle over carbon taxes and attempt to restore some sanity to the debate.

In particular we take a look at the influence of socialism on the Greens, with former communist Lee Rhiannon now in the Senate (hence the watermelon image above). Rhiannon was a member of the hard line Socialist Party of Australia which continued to support the Soviets after the brutal supression of the Prague uprising in 1968.

From The Australian:

Ms Rhiannon was also involved in a public spat over her communist past with author Mark Aarons after he published his account of his...

Duelling carbon tax rallies in Sydney

07 April 2011

By Hereward Fenton

Hereward Fenton reports on pro and anti carbon tax rallies held in Sydney on 2 April 2011.

Some observations about these events:

  • The anti-carbon tax protest was composed of a wide demographic in terms of age, education and occupation, whereas the pro carbon tax group appeared to be mainly composed of younger people with a university education.
  • Those who oppose the carbon tax appear to be concerned, in principle, about the dishonesty and lack of accountability which is manifest within government. These people are actually concerned about the principles behind the actions, whereas the pro-carbon tax crowd seems to rationalise (with a degree of cynicism) the endemic dishonesty within government.
  • The anti-carbon tax protesters are deeply offended...

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

From the entry 'Mass media disinformation and brainwashing dissected'.

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.
