Halloween Special with Josh Jackson
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?
International news and analysis with George Georgios
Today's show covers a variety of both local and international news with our in-studio guest Georgios.
Some of the topics covered include developments in the Assange stand-off in London, and a final ruling in the protracted civil lawsuit over the death in Gaza of activist Rachel Corrie.
Our scheduled interview with Syrian Girl was unfortunately cancelled, however we hope to have her on the line during the next show.
Group discussion on free speech, Wikileaks and Julian Assange
Today's show is cram packed with discussion, analysis and interviews.
In the first hour we have a four way discussion between the host, Hereward Fenton, Leon Pittard of Fair Dinkum radio and regulars John Bursill and Josh Jackson.
The topic of our discussion is the current stand-off between Julian Assange and the British government, and what this says about free speech in the modern age.
In the second hour John Bursill returns to give us an in depth briefing on the Julia GIllard AWU scandal.
In the second half of the second hour, my guest is Matt Turner from Skinwalkers Band. Matt is passionate and articulate about things that matter - a great interview, not to be missed!
I hope you enjoy the show.

Julian Assange in the crosshairs
Today's show focuses on the stand-off between Julian Assange and the British government. The news about his acceptance by Ecuador had not yet broken as we went to air.
We also take a look at the science-fiction level totalitarian surveillance system known as "TrapWire", amid speculation that this invasive technique of "crime prevention" may be already in use in Australia. We note that all copies of an article on the topic (originally published in the Fairfax press) have now abeen deleted. The original article can still be found here, courtesy of Fair Dinkum Radio.
Other themes addressed in the show include the escalating rhetoric of war against Iran, the Australian nanny state, and a look at the a testimonial regarding the alternative cancer cure known as "black salve".

We take a fresh look at the concept of "cognitive infiltration", a term coined by Obama advisor Cass Sunstein, to describe ways in which government might use deceptive techniques to infiltrate and influence anti-government activist groups and conspiracy theorists.

Rochelle Macredie on legal aspects of the Wikileaks case
Today it's my honour to have lawyer Rochelle Macredie back on the show for a full hour.
During the show we take a detailed look at the legal questions surrounding the arrest of Julian Assange and the possibility of his being extradited to the US to face espionage charges.
As the show goes to air today Assange is due to appear in court to appeal for his release on bail. The legality of his detention is increasingly being questioned, since he has not actually been charged with a crime, but rather is wanted for questioning.
Lady Ludford MEP, the Liberal Democrat European justice and human rights spokeswoman, claimed the arrest warrant system, which she said she supported, was being used by Sweden to carry out a fishing expedition. Sweden had yet to formally charge Assange with any offence.
In a letter to the Guardian, Ludford wrote that past cases showed that it was "not a legitimate purpose for an EAW to be used to conduct an investigation to see whether that person should be prosecuted". She added: "Normal cross-border cooperation on collection of evidence or interrogation of suspects called 'mutual legal assistance', using for example video-conferencing or a summons for temporary transfer of a suspect, should be used when more appropriate. "I urge the UK courts to refuse to allow the Assange EAW to be a fishing expedition without a pending actual prosecution. EU rules should be properly respected so that the integrity of the European arrest warrant process is protected."

The War on Wikileaks

In tonight's show we delve once more into the controversy surrounding Julian Assange who now languishes in a "segregation unit" in London's Wandsworth prison awaiting extradition to Sweden on "sex crimes" charges.
Earlier in the week Wikileaks experienced a concerted attack from its corporate service providers with Amazon, Paypal and VISA and a Swiss bank freezing funds and closing accounts.
Simultaneously, reports flooded in of massive denial of service attacks against these same organisations from a hacker group known as "anonymous".
Despite death threats and calls from prominent US politicians for him to be declared an "enemy combatant" and/or charged with espionage offenses, Assange has been receiving strong support from a variety of surprising quarters including the Murdoch Press and former Australian PM Kevin Rudd.
Yesterday it emerged via Wikileaks that Labor senator Mark Arbib, instrumental in Rudd's sacking as PM, has secret ties with the US embassy and had been feeding the US ambassador with inside information about leadership tensions within the party.
Is a revolution underway? Or is this merely part of a globalist frame-up to create an "internet 9/11" to justify draconian changes to our internet freedoms?

Is Julian Assange now a target of the CIA psyops department?
After studying all the known facts it seems clear that Mr. Assange is definitely the victim in this sad affair, yet the media (including the "high-brow" broadsheets) continue to publish stories about Assange which prominently feature the word "rape", while dredging up trivial gossip about his sex life.
'An allegation has been reported all around the world', Assange says of the continuing Swedish legal circus. 'It's at present on six million websites. In fact one in twenty websites mentioning the word rape also mentioned my name.'
This remains the case even though the leaked "rape" charge was almost immediately withdrawn, and no formal charges have been laid, and despite the disingenuous attempts of crooked journalists to dispel valid and justified suspicion that this is all a product of the CIA dirty tricks department.
The propensity of the global mainstream media to act in lock-step to publish baseless slander is something which must be confronted and exposed. It is tangible proof that there is a conspiracy of the powerful running things, shaping opinion and subverting democracy and the rule of law.
We look forward to your comments and thank you for listening (:
