Forgotten Australians Day of Action
Protesters at the Forgotten Australians Day of Action - 15 May 2013

My guest today in the 2nd hour is Gabrielle Phillips Short, a survivor of institutional abuse whose testimony is helping bring reconciliation and justice for many adults who as children were abused while in institutional care.

Gabrielle has testified before the Inquiry into the Handling of Child Abuse by Religious and Other Organisations in Victoria, which is due to conclude in November 2013.

In today's show we bring you some excerpts from the transcript of Gabrielle's testimony and her own comments and reflections on the ongoing struggle for survival of thousands of abuse victims around the country.

In the first hour we welcome once again Sarah Shbat, who joins us from Damascus, Syria....

Today in the 2nd hour we bring you an exclusive interview with Sarah Shbat, a law student currently living in Damascus. Sarah is a fierce defender of the sovereignty of Syria and our interview highlights some of the greatest challenges faced by Syrians today.

Unfortunately, the interview was cut short due to a power outage, however we will be continuing our conversation in next week's show, so stay tuned to TNRA.

Also in today's show we take a look at the environmental and health consequences of the the global biofuels industry, which is creating upheaval and provoking protest movements in many countries.

The effects of the biofuels industry include:

  • Environmental destruction
  • Global food shortages
  • Land grabbing
  • Inflated fuel and energy...

Today's show focuses once again on Syria. We analyse and highlight the issues in the Syrian crisis and remark upon the inability or unwillingness of corporate media to give any credence to the possibility that the chemical weapons attacks in Syria were false flag provocations designed specifically to force western intervention.

We consider the inability of the media to consider the possibility of false flag operations generally and speculate as to why indeed the quality of modern journalism is so intellectually weak.

Our scheduled interview with Franklin Lamb was unfortunately cancelled and will be held at a future date.

We also bring you a story which illustrates the degree to which our right to privacy has been eroded in Australia. The Australian Bureau...

My guest in the 2nd hour of today's show is Scott Bartle, author of "Frequently Unanswered Questions of the Australian Government".

Scott claims that the "Australian Government" is now in receivership, having defaulted on repayments of bank loans which are ultimately underwritten by the US Federal Reserve. He further proposes that there are in fact 2 governments, and that the entity known as the "Australian Government" is not the same thing as the "Government of the Commonwealth".

Are you confused yet? Well buckle up, because it gets murkier from here.

In our wide ranging discussion Scott details his research into the true structure of our government and our banking system. His conclusions are startling and have very serious implications for the basic...

Today's show largely focuses on Syria and we bring you 2 interviews during the course of the show.

In the first hour I am joined by John Bursill who outlines his view about Syria and then gives us a breakdown of his view of the Australian political spectrum. This show was recorded before the 2013 Federal elections, and therefore contains speculations and discussion which may have been made irrelevant by the Coalition's stunning victory on Saturday.

In the 2nd hour I am joined once again by Leon Pittard, host of Fair Dinkum Radio, and our discussion focuses largely on the Syria situation and failure of our own government to live up to the expected standards of a peaceful democracy.

Bob Carr
Foreign Minister Bob Carr says that there is a flaw in international law, and the US should be able to bomb Syria without UN approval

In today's show we delve into the psychological underpinnings of the new tyranny. We propose the idea that modern society is afflicted with an epidemic of narcissism, which itself creates the patterns of lawlessness, exploitation and rampant militarism which we see everywhere these days.

In the first half of the show we run through some of the more egregious examples of dishonesty in world leaders, with a focus on the unfolding Syrian crisis. We take a look at recent statements by Australian PM Kevin Rudd, Foreign Minister Bob Carr, the US Secretary of state John Kerry and the French President Francois Hollande, and we...

Categories: [ Syria, Vaccination ]

In today's show we look at the controversy over vaccines from the perspective of basic human freedom.

We propose that, whether or not vaccines are safe and effective, there is a moral imperative to protect the freedom of the individual which is being eroded by medical fascists who seek to make vaccines mandatory.

We look at reports of decreasing vaccination levels among some Australian communities and reflect on factors which may have influenced these changes.

In the 2nd hour we look at some research into the deep links between the Murdoch family and the pharmaceutical industry, links which may explain, among other things, the sustained persecution of Dr. Andrew Wakefield, whose medical licence was revoked in the U.K. after a sustained attack on his...

In today's show we bring you a wide range of stories from Australia and around the world, leading with the latest developments on the Syrian conflict.

In a shocking development, the lead UN investigator into war crimes in Syria, Carla Del Ponte, has announced that the Syrian rebels most likely had used sarin gas and that there was no evidence whatsoever that the Syrian government was responsible for any chemical attacks. In an interview with Swiss radio, she is quoted as follows:

According to the testimonies we have gathered, the rebels have used chemical weapons, making use of sarin gas

We still have to deepen our investigation, verify and confirm (the findings) through new witness testimony, but according to what we have established so far, it is at the...

Remains of the pressure cooker bomb believed to been packed with ball bearings

Today's show focusses on the recent terrorist bombing at the Boston Marathon. Our aim is to understand the underlying "message" behind this attack, and to deconstruct the MSM propaganda which seeks to portray this as the act of some fringe groups who are disgruntled over gun ownership legislation and the intrusion of government into their private lives.

We suggest that the propaganda message being broadcast is indeed far more important than the event itself, which while tragic for those directly involved, was insignificant compared to the daily road toll.

The Boston attacks have triggered discussion in Australian media about the threat of "ideological terrorist attacks" - and...

Hannadi talks to us about the history of the conflict, its real causes and the ultimate agenda which drives those who are seeking to topple the Syrian government.

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

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.
