Schapelle Corby

In tonight's program we continue our investigation of the Schapelle Corby case, which we began in an earlier podcast.

I have as my guest Schapelle's uncle, Shun Hatton, who joins us from Darwin.

Tonight we examine in depth evidence which suggests that mainstream media organisations engaged in a deliberate campaign to discredit Schapelle and her family, and we present the startling revelation that this campaign of vilification was orchestrated at the highest levels of government, with active collusion from Australia's public broadcaster the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).

In particular we focus on the allegations made by investigative reporter John Stewart, in a Lateline program aired on 4 July 2008, which asserts that Schapelle's father was involved in the drug trade. When originally broadcast these assertions were offered as "facts".

The ABC later acknowledged that they "should have made it clear that these were allegations, not facts", however this retraction did little to reverse the massive effect on public opinion caused by the original program.

Today marks the fifth anniversary of Schapelle's incarceration in Bali. Her health is deteriorating rapidly. Clearly there is more than enough "reasonable doubt" in this case to warrant major diplomatic efforts to have Schapelle returned to Australia. Instead we have seen a carefully crafted campaign to turn public opinion against her - and the only plausible reason for this is political expediency.

We all suffer as a result of this assault on our democracy and human rights.

The media burying of Schapelle Corby has been the most obscene episode in the shameful history of Australian broadcasting and publishing. The media have been a tool of political corruption and complicity, and a young woman is slowly being tortured to death as result. <br><br>Public opinion has been subdued and managed at will, with every smear, every lie and every hidden truth being a nail in an innocent’s coffin.<br><br>I hold my hand up to Truth News for having the courage and integrity to scratch the surface of this, and to begin to expose a scandal that makes all decent people shudder. <br><br>Thank you for standing up to be counted, and for confronting those with zero regard for human rights and human life.

Whether or not she is actually guilty means nothing.  As previously said, there is enough doubt.  Heaven and earth was moved to return a “convicted terrorist” to Australia and free him, but nothing has been done to return a “convicted drug runner”. <br><br>Both were convicted in “kangaroo courts”, and neither conviction could have occurred if they had been tried in Australian courts.<br><br>So why did David Hicks matter while Schapelle Corby did not?

By Christine Kent on 2009 10 09 - 12:15:02

Great show. It’s very sad to hear her speak. Its clear she was innocent. And from a legal standpoint beyond reasonable doubt that she was guilty.

I have struggled to comprehend why the Australian media took it on themselves to so blatantly go out of their way to destroy any chance Schapelle Corby had of defending herself prier to her guilty verdict and afterwards prier to her appeals. I have read the many comment’s that should not have been expressed by representatives of the Australian Government the Australian Federal Police, her QC and subsequently her x lawyer Robin Tampoe. If this case had been held in Australia many would have been charged with professional misconduct I am sure of this amid Tampoe being the first to be struck off.<br><br>In all my years of being involved with the media, I have never before witnessed such obscene and gutter journalism. With the continuous airing of negative press via TV and print media over the past five years I have watched the media damage this young woman’s life “forever” and this will go way past her 20 year guilty conviction, not to say what they have done to her family’s character.<br><br>Is it not so blatantly obvious that Schapelle Corby’s fundamental human right’s have been exploited? Schapelle Corby is an Australian and is seen by many as a political prisoner a prisoner locked away in a filthy 3rd world prison out of sight of the Australian Governments eyes being used by some in the Indonesian prison system as a tourist attraction which to generate extra rupiah.. <br><br>It is known fact tourists can pay anything up to $100 AU 852,234 Indonesian Rupiah to view Schapelle in the Kerobokan prison court yard and you don’t have to be a member of her family or a friend to do so, you just have to cough up the bucks and you’re in. Schapelle Corby is nothing more than a caged human locked away for profiters. <br><br>What evidence did the Indonesian’s have? a boggy board 4.2 kg of marijuana which Schapelle categorically states even though being diagnosed as insane, the marijuana found in her bag did not belonging to her, it was placed in her bag by someone els.<br><br>This young women continues to protest her innocence yet NOT one Indonesian or Australian investigative journalist/lawyer will taken up the fight to help free her, so you have to ask why and what are they all afraid of? <br><br>“Is this your bag Miss Corby?” Schapelle YES but that’s not mine pointing to the plastic bag “thank you, we don’t care you said the bag belongs to you, that is all we need to know go straight to jail for 20 years young lady!!!”<br><br>This case is irrefutably bloody scandalous and there are many in the media and Government who are responsible for this women’s present position.

Hereward, You should have a donation payment set-up on your site for this. We can get people can fight this injustice through raising funds. something like a grath to show how much is raised to fight these bastards

Schapelle Corbys arrest was beneficial for the AFP for a number of reasons. <br><br>Firstly it was a media feeding frenzy to divert attention away from Gary Lee Rogers AFP Internal Investigator who had uncovered an organised Federal Police Marijuana Smuggling ring, and for his trouble wound up dead…. JUST BEFORE Corby was arrested.  The best way to stop pesky media types asking questions is to have a breaking big story… ENTER Schapelle and her boogie bag.  <br><br>http://southeastasianews.org/corby_special.html<br><br>Curious that the security cameras didn’t work at Sydney Airport…. Nor at Brisbane Airport Nor at Bali Airport.  What are the chances of that?<br><br>Secondly…. Have a guess who took credit for the BIG CORBY BUST in Indonesia?  None other than former AFP trained Indonesian Police Chief who had recently been promoted to Head of Narcotics… Curiously.. the same guy who invited the AFP to BALI to investigate the Sari club bombings… I Made Pastika.<br>http://southeastasianews.org/un_at_bali.html<br><br>Schappelle Corby was Mick Keeltys way of thanking Pastika for a job well done in Bali 2002.<br><br>What a tangled web they weave. Using an innocent person to feather their political careers of these criminals.

Yeah well of course they spy on people using gmail, read the international terrorist laws. The politicians gave themselves exclusive rights to spy on who they like when they like however they like.
They are aiming for an 1984 type deal in my opinion and they will continue to aim for that as longs as we let them, the sad part being that 90% of the people in our country do just let them.
I say good on ya for speaking the truth but the more relevant topic would be the reduction in our rights that abott has made since he sat in the seat. he is going one further than just spying by giving ASIO the right to arrest anyone they want for no apparent reason. that’s new news.
The fact that government agencies pay for our private information has been an issue for a long time.
Since there was an internet to spy with I’d say. The internet just isn’t a private entity regardless of how anyone sells their website.

Crypto Currencies will rocket in value as the FIAT system devalues itself.

Only problem is, 50% of cryptos are produced in their first year normally.

This is a pretty big deal in my opinion thus I’m calling for a Bitcoin-do-over.

In your last broadcast you seemed to accept the conclusion of a few complainants that the show was suffering from a lack of money, and a lack of “good guests”, as someone has criticised you for.  My own view is that the show is getting noticeably better. You have improved enormously as a radio personality. I am now happy to listen to your own Alan Jones-style opinionation because you have a unique voice which is worth listening to. I mean not only your mind, but the “tonics” (I don’t know the correct term) of your actual voice, which has a combination of purity, precision, passion, and thoughtfulness which is unique, and certainly worth a much larger audience. I am amazed at the top guests you have attracted to your show, considering that the listeners must be very few. I could offer some criticism as well, but that isn’t the point of this message. I would stop worrying about the shoestring you have to produce your show. Look at Tom Feeley at ICH and his constant, embarrassing, failed pleas to get his much larger audience to contribute financially. This comes with the territory. You are Cinderella who has ugly sisters working at all the major media outlets in Australia. That’s the way the world works. Virtue and Truth are usually poor and persecuted. You remarked in your last broadcast that reality is reversed in today’s media, but it has been ever thus. Cinderella is just one such fairy tale on that theme. The Emperor’s Clothes is another.  The biggest tyrants crown themselves and have big castles and can give their evil a makeover with wall-to-wall art and honors. For hundreds of years they even claimed the right to de-virginate every new bride among their serfs. People bowed down to them, as they still bow down to the succession of criminals who go down in history as dignified presidents of the United States. Unfortunately, the majority of humans are constituted to look up to power and wealth. That’s why there are so many poor people who vote for political parties which serve only the interests of the very rich. These voters actually identify with the rich and powerful, and would behave similarly if they were lucky enough to be rich and powerful. You have the ultimate role model of Jesus, the divine man (according to billions) who was crucified for being the ultimate role model. You haven’t been crucified yet, Hereward, so you have nothing to complain about. You don’t seem to realise that since the end of the second world war (and starting centuries before that) the US government has been systemically engaged in a genocidal program to rid the world of anyone and everyone who thinks “left”, that is, anyone who actively believes in a civilisation where everyone has a happy place and life. I might comment in passing on your criticism of Google’s behavior. Surely you must be aware that the US Government has passed a series of laws deposing the Constitution and imposing a tyrannical state, starting with the Patriot Act after 9-11, which no congressional voter was allowed to even read (and anthrax was sent to congressional leaders that insisted on normal examination of a new bill, even if normal means just the usual Congressional pretence of examining it). By law Google (and every library in America) is not allowed to disclose that the government is snooping and taking what was once considered private information. Blame US tyrannical laws, not Google. I am surprised that Google even notified the journalists after two years. Perhaps that’s allowed by law after that period has elapsed. Advising your listeners to bail out of gmail is uninformed, useless advice. All other email communications, indeed all other forms of communication, are spied on and collected for storage. There is no escape. Surely you must be aware of this. There was a revelation this morning that the American government now has the technology to extract whatever they want from your hard drive even if it’s not connected to the internet, and are already doing just that. They are far advanced in techniques to read your mind (and control it). The situation is a lot, lot worse than “chilling”. The technical advances and the science is “progressing” so incredibly fast that it’s hard not to believe that they have either been back-engineering alien technology, or are being fed this technology by aliens in return for selling everybody’s soul, as some have claimed to be witnesses of.  I am one of the freeloaders who listens to your program and fast-forwards your ads requesting donations. If I had a lot of money, I would be happy to done $100,000, or a million, since we are talking pie in the sky. But instead I’m a pensioner who has no money in the bank and very often ends up in embarrassing situations where I can’t pay for the simplest things, particularly in emergencies. I would be happy to support you by going through the gauntlet of contacting possible guests. Indeed, I could suggest hundreds of guests for your program. For my purposes, all of your famous-guest appearances have been wasted, as the questioning was just ending in vague re-hashes of the basic position(s) of the guest which have been articulated much more specifically and in more interesting and significant detail in their own articles. I would suggest sticking to a specific theme in each interview, so as to get a much clearer picture of some aspect in meaningful detail. Even on a topic such as, say, vaccinations, by the end of the hour only a little light has been shed, when it would be possible to give a much fuller picture of the evidence in the same period of time. On that subject, what about getting on Robert Kennedy Jr. to reprise the facts in his famous 2005 ROLLING STONE article on vaccinations? It would be a lot harder for Australia to call a Kennedy evil or crazy than some obscure American doctor without a household name. In fact, why not try to arrange an Australian lecture tour yourself for Kennedy Jr., perhaps buttressed by medicos like Viera and Sherri, maybe a few others. That would be an interesting confrontation with reality, and allow a latter-generation Kennedy to create his own profile in courage.

josh stupidity says..

I have no idea where you got that statement you attribute to me that “nothing strange going on anywhere, any time.. any how.”
As usual, I don’t expect you are able to quote me.

bwahhaa! that s because thats all you ever say feckknuckle! - you simply state, that contrails may ( under specific rare atmospheric conditions ) persist. ( for inderminate time )

when yconfronted with the non rare, astonishingly numerous documented accounts chemtrails - you simply dismiss them as persistant contrails, nothing to worry about..  as far as quoting you.. all one has to do is read through this very thread to see the totallity of your stupidity.

fact is.. stuff is going on, that can not simply be explained by your continued assertions, unqualified and anonymous as they are.. that we have nothing to worry about, we should relax, they are simply persistant contrails.  go stuff yaself moron. youre a smelly stain on the underpants of the internet
