Categories: [ Carbon Tax, Occupy Australia ]

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 show.

We also take a look at the unfolding occupy Australia movement which is due to launch protests in a number of capital cities across the country this week. Is this truly a movement of the people, or is it another controlled opposition with a socialist flavour?

All this and more covered in today's show!

I f you are thinking of the left and right of politics as a straight line,at one end you have Communism and at the other end you have fascism with labor and liberals and every other party in between then you really are not understanding things very well because you have an enormous gap between communism and fascism but instead if you take a hold of that straight line at both ends and bend them around so that you create a circle with the communist end almost touching the fascist end then you’ll have a clearer picture of how close these 2 extremes really are! the little gap inbetween is the minor differences between thee 2 but they are both for a controlling State that should be worshipped over family,religion and free thought.To get a better understanding of this I suggest you go to youtube and search for G. Edward Griffin: The Collectivist Conspiracy , Once you have watched this then Watch - G. Edward Griffin: Individualism vs. Collectivism - PT 1 of 4 and watch all 4 parts.You cannot fight the enemy of freedom if you do not have a clear picture of what it is!

If those people are against the carbon tax then instead of complaining about the tax can they firstly explain why they are, (besides whinging about not being able to have the heater on while watching television)then offer some alternative solutions to fix this cess-pit of filthe we currently live in. The Environmental, (ie: YOUR HEALTH DEPENDS UPON IT) degradation is abominable!
What bright ideas do you have to FIX IT!!!!!!!!

What a great interview, I think the road signs are a great idea and I would love to be a part of it in Sydney!

My thoughts on the matter are to protect the purchasing power of the individual. Wealthy individuals create wealthy and charitable societies. A free market will dictate the most efficient energy source and reward/encourage the innovators who bring it to us. In a free/ honest market place you cannot harm or destroy the property of others and the people will sue with all their force if their air, water, public and private land is posioned. This would be presented in a court of law with proper evidence and scientific analysis, not played out on the media stage with BS “talking points” and emotive muscial numbers.

Socialism steals our purchasing power and gives it to corporations who suppress efficient technologies. Socialism leads to the corruption of the market place, allowing corporations to “fix prices”. Socialism protects the unlawful acts of corporations from the rights of the individual.

I am a bleeding heart environmentalist, and the only way to protect the environment is to protect the rights of the individual, not the corporation. I am so frustrated with young people my age having such strong opinions without doing ANY research. ...“Forget history, policy or carbon science I have a loud left identity”, argh!

I think one of the greatest fallacies that this government and the greens has created with the help of the Lamestream media is the perception that people against the carbon dioxide tax just don’t care about the environment which could’nt be further from the truth.I remember as a kid crying to my parents about the environment and this was before any green indoctrination in schools or before the hole in the ozone layer scare.I joined greenpeace and was active as a young teen spreading the word about animal and plant species going extinct but I left greenpeace in 1985 when I found out that the original owners were pushed out by the communist takeover of greenpeace.I then realised that their was a different agenda behind this movement because ,let’s face it, commies could’nt give a crap about the environment,they just saw a vehicle to push their agenda into the mainstream by pulling at the heart strings of the young and they have fooled many young people into doing the hard yards for them.Today they are represented by a political party that has risen to the top of Australian politics and are effectively changing the fundamental core values of Australians and demonising anyone that disagrees with their policies.It’s a sad state of affairs that we find ourselves in when these people can make over 50% of our population seem like extreme anti environmental people when we are clearly not! We are on the contrary more well informed on the environment because we’ve had to study it in order to counter their false claims whereas their blind followers just except the commie propaganda without really looking at the facts.I feel that if we do not get both parties left and right to drop this non-sense AGW agenda our country will be lost forever to these elites and the UN.If this happens we will no longer have a country of our own and instead live by the dictates of an all encompassing all seeing all knowing world scientific dictatorship that will micro manage every part of our lives.The Green Police is just the start of this dictatorship and God help us if they get their way.Please know the enemy by watching the videos I have mentioned above in my first comment and go from there.Australia it is time to wake up and put aside childish things,such as the entertainment that they provide to keep the Mob appeased for eg. football and other sports,xbox,and pc games,these are all here to distract us from the REAL issues in life.We must defeat this Evil at any cost or we will lose everything our forefathers have fought for!!!!

Left vs right >> Labor vs Liberal etc etc
The owners of this country have all sides covered, they control everyone. This is merely a means by which we are manipulated and controlled,...worn down and taught to fight with one another while our masters push through their agendas. If you really knew who really controls this planet you’d be tempted to take up arms or maybe just give up and check out. It’s a dark and scary battle but you must find the truth alone, you won’t believe what I tell you.

By Jake on 2011 10 16 - 23:21:53

@Jake,I for one am very aware of the false left/right paradigm as you are.I know who the real masters behind the curtain are and I know very well what they have planned for the human race.This is why I push for Tony Abott to come clean with the Australian people and announce the true science not the government sponsored sciece behind the fake AGW agenda.It is up to him to show us that he’s not just another globalist owned puppet but a true representative of the Australian people.We for sure are in very dark times as the evil forces of this planet push for total control of all countries and incrementally apply their evil plans hidden behind the guise of “saving” the planet! If we don’t as a collective wake up to this agenda I fear all will be lost and humanity will not only be financial slaves but will find ourselves literal slaves of these phsycopathic elite control freaks.If you have read between the lines of the UN Agenda 21 documents especially the part on depopulation you’ll understand the kind of mindset we are fighting against.Anyone that believes that their are to many people on this planet should lead by example and put a gun to their head and pull the trigger as this is what you are asking of all other humans.The New World Order is a reallity and if we do nothing it is exactly what we will get,the most evil scientific dictatorship this planet has ever seen.All their plans are in black and white throughout their writings in their books.It is undeniable if you have read their “eugenics” agenda.

Loved the interview movies.
A lot.

Mister Fenton, you are a patient man.
I would not be able to be so patient with people that promote lies to serve their agenda, and destroy any opportunity to expose the lies and bring truth to society.

Red papists.
Communism was started with the reductions in Paraguay in the 16th century.
Here a link for people who want to research the truth behind these succesful Papist lies:

The purpose of the Soviet Union, was to kill out the Russian Orthodox tradition and knowledge base. This was proceeded in Yugoslavia, where covert papist Bill Clinton and the Popish thug NATO would bomb Russian Orthodox Serbia in favour of Roman Catholic Croatia in the 1990’s. Croatia, where the neck-tie was invented.
And this is how we recognize these (d)elites wink

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.
