In today's show, the last for 2013, I bring you my list of the top ten crimes against truth for the year.

What is a "crime against truth"? The wording is borrowed from that of the Nuremburg War Crimes trials, which coined the term "crime against peace", and embodies a similar principle. Crimes against truth are significant not simply because of the immediate damage they cause but because they erode the very foundations of civilisation and thus have deep and long lasting effects which are very difficult to reverse.

My list is a subjective one, and you may not agree with all the entries. I have included 2 popular conspiracy theories in my list because I believe that these represent untruths which have done a great deal of damage to the credibility of those who call themselves "truthers", myself included. It's a popular position among truthers that we should keep an open mind regarding all conspiracy theories and refrain from criticising those alternative theories with which we disagree out of loyalty to the team. I believe this is a deeply misguided and dangerous attitude, which reflects a degree of ignorance about the true nature of the information war in which we are all engaged.

As George Orwell said, "in a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act" - but there is a catch to this. If you want to counteract a culture of lies by telling the truth then you must at all costs and with great diligence guard against spreading lies yourself. It is not good enough to simply profess an "open mind" and allow all manner of hoaxes and rumours to be propagated in your name. That will not effect a revolution. That will actually strengthen the status quo because it erodes the very basis of your "truth movement".

I have included in the list a couple items which are mainly significant for Australians. However, these issues are ones I feel very passionately about, so I stand by them while acknowledging my subjective bias.

Here then is the TNRA list of the top ten crimes against truth for 2013, which are discussed in detail in the associated podcast. Each crime is presented here in the form of a statement which is itself a lie.

  1. The US economy Is recovering
  2. The Syrian regime is a brutal dictatorship which the international community must bring to an end
  3. Iran is attempting to build a nuclear weapon and has failed to meet its obligations to the Atomic Energy Agency
  4. The people of Gaza are doing OK.
  5. The debate about Global Warming is over - we must maintain a carbon tax in order to save the planet.
  6. The refugee crisis in Australia is unique and unprecedented and people smugglers are abhorrent criminals.
  7. Schapelle Corby is guilty beyond reasonable doubt of importing cannabis into Bali.
  8. The protest movement in Thailand is anti-democratic and orchestrated by a minority of monied elites.
  9. Normal aircraft  contrails dissipate quickly. Those which persist are toxic, and are the product of a global geo-engineering operation known as "chemtrails".
  10. No children died at Sandy Hook. The victims' family members and witnesses seen on TV were all crisis actors.

It's been a great great honour bringing you this show for over 5 years now - and I'm just getting going. Stay tuned!

Amber LyonOn today's show we bring you an exclusive interview with Emmy Award winning journalist, filmmaker and former CNN reporter Amber Lyon.

Amber Lyon has reported on subjects as diverse as child trafficking, the 2010 BP oil spill disaster, and the Arab Spring.

Our discussion today focusses on the key issue of integrity in media and journalism. We take a look at the way the major news organisations filter information and influence editorial direction from the top down.

Amber describes her experience as a whistleblower on CNN's dishonest reporting on Bahrain, and the suppression of her own genuine investigative reporting which exposed the brutal repression of a popular movement for reform in that country.

Amber's CNN documentary iRevolution: Online Warriors of the Arab Spring has not been broadcast since its initial showing on US CNN and has has never been shown on CNN International, which has wide coverage in the Middle East.

Amber has also engaged in extensive coverage of protest movements within the US, which she has documented in her recent book Peace, Love, and Pepper Spray.

She is currently working on a new book which investigates the use of psychadelic drugs as medicines.

Harry FearMy guest today in the second hour is filmmaker Harry Fear, who has been documenting the struggle of the Palestinian people and providing opportunites for journalists from around the world to visit the occupied territories in Palestine.

Our conversation today covers some of  the history of the Israel/Palestine conflict, recent troubles in Gaza and Egypt's current political situation.

In the first hour we bring to you some coverage of the current unrest in Thailand with a focus on exposing some of the blatant disinformation emanating from the major news networks. The main theme of recent news on Thailand is that the protest movement there is led by a minority faction who have an "anti-democratic" agenda. The truth is indeed quite different, and I urge you to listen to the full show to get a different perspective on this unfolding crisis.

Also in the first hour, we take a look at some recent interviews with the iconic intellectual Noam Chomsky with aim of analysing the peculiar bias and blind spots which he demonstrates on some very important topics.

Deconstructing the spin from corporate media on Thailand

Categories: [ Thailand ]

The spin from corporate media on Thailand is that the protest movement there represents a minority of the population and that they are anti-democratic.

The first claim is patently false, the second one is yet to be proven.

Let’s look at the first claim, about this being a minority movement. It’s true that the incumbent government won the previous election, so at one time they did indeed represent a majority. However, things have moved on and the mood of the people has changed. The protesters argue that the elections were won due to electoral bribes from the fantastically wealthy exiled former PM who has already been convicted on various corruption charges.

They further argue that the “redshirts” - so called regime loyalists - are an artificial construct, a “rent-a-crowd” funded by the same source

Add to that the fact that the former PM’s sister is now in charge and taking orders from the exiled brother, and you can understand the sense of outrage that many Thais feel. While the support for the protest movement has grown, the support for the regime has dwindled.

And where are the redshirts?

In all the international media coverage of the protest the redshirts are nowhere to be seen. They have vaporized. Despite this the western media continues to push the ludicrous meme that the protest is a minority movement.

Now let’s consider the “anti-democratic” accusation. It’s true that the protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban has called for a “People’s Council” to replace the government, but that is because the government is seen as fundamentally illegitimate and corrupt. So, in the interests of democracy, they say that this corrupt structure must be taken down. That is their position. As to whether this is anti-democratic, only time will tell, but while there is so much misinformation about the size and mandate of the protest movement it’s impossible to tell whether this is heading in a democratic direction.

As to why it is the western media is propping up the current regime in Thailand, that’s another story. I would argue that the western media (a proxy for a hidden oligarchy) has an aversion to real democracy movements because true democracy is the greatest threat to its power.

John Pilger Deconstructs the New World Order

John Pilger

My guest today is legendary filmmaker John Pilger, who has just released a new documentary, 'Utopia', which documents the ongoing oppression of Australia's indigenous people which Pilger first highlighted in his 1985 film 'The Secret Country'.

During our interview Pilger explains how the false left/right paradigm disguises a much deeper agenda of control which we see being played out all over the world. He highlights the way in which racist policies such as the Northern Territory Intervention have been used in a sense to trial new ways of controlling populations, which are now being rolled out nationally, and across all ethnic divisions.

Pilger talks of a new class division which is being created within modern society, between those who are willing to go along with an increasingly tyrannical system and those who are marginalised to the status of a disenfrachised under class, whose lives are monitored, controlled and restricted in a multitude of ways.

Pilger also talks about the role of the media in falsely representing the policies of the major parties, giving us the illusion that we are able to make a meaningful choice when it comes time to vote, whereas, in fact, whichever way we vote things turn out pretty much the same. He argues that similar PR (or propaganda) techniques have been used to 'sell' wars to us in order to keep us compliant.

Also in today's show, we bring you some media clips in relation to welfare quarantining and the Basics Card.

I believe today's show is an important contribution to the worldwide struggle against encroaching tyranny. If you feel the same, please forward this link to your contact list.

Roger Stone on the man who killed Kennedy

JFK and LBJ

My 2nd hour guest today is Roger Stone, author of The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ. Stone's book delves into many hidden aspects of the life and character of Lyndon Baines Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy as the 36th President of the United States on November 22, 1963.

Stone's indictment of the late President Johnson is severe and unrelenting. He describes LBJ as a narcissist, psychopath, alcoholic and sex addict - a man obsessed with his own self image and consumed with jealousy of JFK's status and mass appeal. According to Stone, LBJ's criminal past included eight murders. A major motive for his involvement in the assassination plot was an ongoing Senate investigation into bribery and corrupt financial dealings in which he was involved, and the fact that he was to be dumped from the Democratic ticket in the upcoming election.

Stone's work builds on other established theories about the JFK assassination. His work doesn't question the significant involvement of the CIA, Texas oilmen or the military industrial complex. All these players had something to gain from JFK's death. Johnson's involvement, however, was deeply personal, and his role was pivotal to the success of the plot.

Also in the 2nd hour, I bring you an excerpt from a lecture by popular researcher Thomas Sheridan, titled Psychopaths in Public Life. Sheridan's analysis differs from much academic literature on this subject in that he is not afraid to confront the reality that a large percentage of psychopaths never get caught, and are often found at the highest levels of politics and business.

In the first hour of today's show we take a look at the GetUp! organisation in Australia, its roots and connections to other large scale activist movements around the world. GetUp! specialises in social engineering, and has had enormous success in Australia. It's sister organisation, Avaaz, has had similar success, on an even larger scale.

Another organisation, Purpose.com, created by GetUp! co-founder Jeremy Heimans, states the following on its "About" page:

Purpose creates 21st century movements. We deploy the collective power of millions of citizens and consumers to help solve some of the world’s biggest problems. We develop and launch our own social and consumer movements using our model of movement entrepreneurship, and we work with organizations and progressive companies to help them mobilize large-scale, purposeful action.

Today we ask the question, who is behind these groups? Are they really a manifestation of popular will, or are they rather the work of a hidden oligarchy which sees shaping society as its privilege and responsibility?

Introducing Karen Hudes: World Bank whistleblower

Karen Hudes

My guest today is Karen Hudes, former senior counsel at the World Bank.

From Karen's website:

In 1999 Karen reported the corrupt take-over of the second largest bank in the Philippines. Lucio Tan, a crony of Joseph Estrada, then President of the Philippines, acquired stock owned by government employees in Philippines National Bank (“PNB”) valued more than 10% of PNB’s outstanding capital without disclosure, as required by Philippines securities laws. Tan owned Philippines Airlines, in default on its loans from PNB. The government of the Philippines loaned $493 million to PNB after PNB’s depositors made heavy withdrawals. $200 million of a loan from the World Bank and a $200 million loan from Japan were cancelled.

Estrada was ultimately impeached, and in 2007 an anti-corruption court in the Philippines required Estrada to refund graft he had plundered. The Bank’s Country Director in the Philippines reassigned Karen when she asked him to sign a letter warning the Philippines’ government that the Bank could not disburse its loan without a waiver from the Board of Executive Directors since the loan conditionality was not met. The World Bank’s Internal Audit Department refused to correct the satisfactory evaluation of the Bank’s supervision performance or the flawed report of the Institutional Integrity Department to the Audit Committee of the Board of Executive Directors.

When the Audit Committee requested an audit of internal controls over financial reporting, KPMG, the external auditors, circumscribed the scope of their audit in violation of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles and Generally Accepted Auditing Standards.

Two days after informing the Board’s Audit Committee of the cover-up in the Philippines, Karen was reprimanded and placed on probation. The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs requested the World Bank’s Audit Committee to look into the cover- up. Instead, the Chair of the World Bank’s Audit Committee requested an inquiry into the World Bank’s Institutional Integrity Department. The Senate Committee on Foreign Relations followed up with three letters to the World Bank. The World Bank forged documents and fired Karen in contempt of Congress. The World Bank also fired the Staff Association’s lawyer. The Staff Association stated that what had happened to Karen had damaged staff morale and prevented others from reporting misconduct. The World Bank’s Ethics’ Officer left in frustration after her request for an investigation by the World Bank’s Institutional Integrity Department was turned down.

Our discussion today covers substantive issues of the corruption which Karen exposed, as well as broader analysis of systemic issues within the monetary system and the hidden control exerted over international banking by the Jesuits and the Vatican.

In the first hour of the show I bring you several audio clips related to the Kennedy assassination. The aim here is to show that the key signs of "inside job" in the JFK case have strong parallels to other majors crimes in history, which can in retrospect be seen as instrumental in the implementation of geo-political strategies of the ruling elites.

What puzzles me is that certain people, some with more degrees than a thermometer, appear not to have observation skills able to discern the difference between condensation trails and obvious aerosols, even though the differences are often before their eyes and the evolution of the aerosols has been taking place for many years.
I guess being a dumb farmer deprives me the ability to believe black is white and argue the cause of such a nonsense.
But I still want to know, if the things are lingering contrails, why there can be much more than 10 times the number of jets when rain is likely?
And are the the pilots lunatics, in the true sense of the word, as the incidence of their activity is voluminously more apparent around full moon?
Or could it be that rain is more likely around full moon? 
And do 3, 4, 8 jets make contrails at the same time and, at times, in formation?
For what reason?
Could they be passenger jets flying in formation?
Why?
RAAF?
Why?
Hold on….UFOs?
