Julia Gillard has now gone on record in Federal Parliament saying that the substantive claims of the 9/11 truth movement are “stupid and wrong”, and tonight we bring you full story behind these developments.
Previously Kevin Bracken, who is the Victorian secretary of the Maritime Union of Australia and president of the Victorian Trades Hall Council, called in to ABC talkback radio in Melbourne to say that “the official story doesn’t stand up to scientific scrutiny”.
The radio host John Faine reacted with dismay and went on to call Mr. Bracken a “nutter” and an “extremist”. However it subsequently became clear that these views had been debated by the union and the Trades Hall Council and both bodies had passed motions on the issue. Nonetheless, the focus of media and political attention has been on Kevin Bracken at a personal level, which is clearly a smokescreen tactic to divert attention from the fact that there is a massive worldwide movement for a new inquiry into the 9/11 attacks.
BREAKING NEWS (21 Oct 2010): “Trades Hall president Kevin Bracken stands by his 9/11 conspiracy”
This morning Mr Bracken phoned into Faine’s program again for a right of reply.
He said he wasn’t phoning as the president of the Trades Hall council or as secretary of the Maritime Union of Australia.
Mr Bracken stood by his comments and said he had the support of 50 per cent of the community.
He also attacked Faine, claiming he was ridiculed on yesterday’s program.
“Unfortunately cowards like yourself have set the political agenda in this country for too long,” said Kevin Bracken.
“I won’t be cowered down to bullies like yourself.” - source
In tonight’s show we bring you a swag of other Australian news on a variety of topics which I’m sure you will find interesting.
We finish with a trailer for a forthcoming documentary on the 1995 Oklahoma Bombing (see below) made by Chris Emery, who we hope to have on the show next week.
UPDATE (22 October 5:30pm):
A Herald sun poll is showing that over 65% of respondents agree with Union leader Kevin Bracken’s view that the official explanation of 9/11 does not stand up to scientific scrutiny.
Tonight’s show is packed with important information and contains audio snippets from a variety of news stories which hit the TNRA desk this week.
The featured image is a snapshot from the “torture porn” movie “Unthinkable“, which pitches the well worn cliché of a ticking time bomb and a suspect (white, muslim) who must be coerced into giving up information which will save millions of lives. When all the usual techniques fail (including chopping his fingers off) there is one last resort which does the trick… listen to the show if you want to find out the hideous truth.
In the second half, to help us unwind, Lawrence Mcdonell takes us on an excursion into the history of Carribean music.
I hope you enjoy the show!
Tonight it is my pleasure to have Ged Johnson, creator and webmaster of Fluoride Australia, on the show.
Is fluoridation of the water supply a form of mass-medication? If so, what are the possible dangers and side effects, and is it subject standard regulatory controls? Above all, why has there never been a public debate, and does the government have the right to forcibly medicate the population?
These are some of the questions we address in this show.
