As we go to air, the Wikileaks controversy continues to dominate the news, and we turn now to look at broader issues around the leaked material.

With the focus entirely on the personality and legal debacle of Julian Assange, the embattled whistle blower and arguably greater victim in all of this is PFC Bradley Manning, who has been locked in an isolation cell for the past seven months under extremely restrictive conditions which amount to torture. He is prevented from exercising in his cell and has been forcibly medicated with anti-depressants.

Bradley Manning is accused of being the source for the leaked Baghdad "Collateral Murder" video which thrust Wikileaks into the international spotlight in April 2010.

Meanwhile, there are ongoing questions regarding the integrity of Julian Assange because of his sweeping dismissal of 9/11 conspiracy theories. Here are his exact words as transcribed by Matthew Bell of the Belfast Telegraph on 19 July 2010: "I'm constantly annoyed that people are distracted by false conspiracies such as 9/11, when all around we provide evidence of real conspiracies, for war or mass financial fraud.".

Michel Chossudovsky has probed into the origins of Wikileaks and observes the following:


Wikileaks' geopolitical focus on "oppressive regimes" in Eurasia and the Middle East was "appealing" to America's elites, i.e. it seemingly matched stated US foreign policy objectives. Moreover, the composition of the Wikileaks team (which included Chinese dissidents), not to mention the methodology of "exposing secrets" of foreign governments, were in tune with the practices of US covert operations geared towards triggering "regime change" and fostering "color revolutions" in different parts of the World.

Today we welcome to the show veteran broadcaster and media professional Anthony Lawson to discuss these matters and more. Anthony recently posted a video on youtube highly critical of Assange, suggesting that "if Julian Assange did not already exist then the CIA and Mossad would need to invent him". This viewpoint, which is shared by a variety of independent researchers, stems from the observation that the bulk of material leaked seems to prop up US foreign policy objectives while leaving Israel completely untouched.

Anthony pulls no punches in this interview, so fasten your seat belts folks!

It is our opinion nonetheless that the case of PFC Manning is a clear instance of a genuine whistle blower risking his career for the sake of transparency, justice and freedom.

Wishing you the very best of Christmases from the crew at TNRA, may we suggest you also visit the Bradley Manning support network where you can leave a donation for this brave young man.

Well, I have to say that what Anthony was saying about Julian not touching 911 does sound a bit suss to me too. I would really hope not but this does seem more and more like another hoax, swindle, a distraction to our real issues.

Could this be another bull shit distraction like global warming? Who knows. I really hope not.

Great show, keep it up.

The other half of this story is that Bradley Manning is a homosexual gay activist. Who broke up with his boyfriend and had huge chip against the US Army policy of Don’t ask don’t tell (D.A.D.T.) and thus leaked the data base out of contempt. He is not the gentile soul and freedom warrior he is made out to be in the general media. He was without doubt depressed as shown in his blogs, and thus was put on medications and minimum bedding due to been on suicide watch. see Wikileaks Leaker an Angry and Confused Soldierhttp://www.pittsreport.com/2010/11/wikileaks-leaker-an-angry-and-confused-soldier-what-one-homo-has-already-done-to-the-us-military/
I believe this story has political motives from the US government as well.

They did invent Assange, MK cult child.
Research his family.

At least he exists.  Bradley Manning is fictitious.

the comments by the writer dont actually reflect that they do not represent anything that is exclusive of evolution.  Darwin knew full well the complexities of nature and his incomplete understanding of the subject.  religious movements are jealous of his accomplishments in observation and history of biology.  in terms of fame he rivals Jesus and this is extremely distasteful to fundamentalists.

With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help prevent content from being stolen? I’d definitely appreciate it.

Hi Josh
I don’t need any more evidence. I need answers.
Why are there so many of these trails when rain is likely or predicted?
How about the people at the helm, the political minitures, sign documents at their own unlimited commercial liability saying the there is no Geoengineering happening? Lets see if they have the guts to do that. If not, why not? Is something being hidden? Why are there near 150 patents for chemical weather remediation? Lots of whys and you wish to dampen the fire of resistance. I guess fluoride and vaccinations are no problem either?
The rot must be stopped and it won’t be by sitting on our hands.

Leonard Clampett,

weather patterns are changing, something scientists have predicted would happen for quite a while.

How is that relevant in the debate about persistent contrails?

Cris,

before initiating a petition, you want to be sure that the issues you list are real.

What you need is a sample from a contrail, taken in the presence of witnesses, analyzed in a lab to show all components contained. Pointing to Youtube videos as evidence will not be enough. How do you know that the video creators got it right?

The original meme of Chemtrails is that any trail that is not short-lived must be something else, and that persistent trails are something new. As shown before, both of these are wrong assumptions.

It’s just a matter of the favorable atmospheric conditions, and has been observed since the first airplanes were able to reach high altitudes.

So why assume that persistent contrails are something evil in the first place?

By the way, HAARP and weather modification (rain making) were stacked upon the first claims only later. However, cloud seeding is known since the 1940s and has never been a secret or been applied on a larger scale.

HAARP had interacted with the ionosphere which has no influence on the troposphere far below (where the weather happens). It is being dismantled right now.

What’s left are countless images and videos of contrails, sun dogs, haze layers. Would you accept if officials tell you these are all effects of tiny ice crystals?

If not, then what would you be prepared to accept?

Tom Jones: Thank you for taking the time to read my post. You are correct when you say that the term ‘anti-semite’ is the wrong way to address the issue of Jew hatred. The semites comprise of four ethnic groups, including Jews, Arabs, Phoenicians and Armenians, yet somehow it’s been branded as Jewish. It’s a little bit like the word gay, meaning happy. It means happy but because it has been popularised as relating to homosexual people, now people think that before it’s intended meaning. Semite evokes thoughts of Jews, regardless of its history.

Wikipedia defines thought crimes as “....an occurrence or instance of controversial or socially unacceptable thoughts.” It would be punishable in the movie 1984, but I think we’d be hard pressed to see it happening in a free nation like Australia. On the other hand, I don’t think you can fairly say that words and speech are harmless. After all, Hitler forged the third reich with words. Words put millions of people in gas chambers and caused a war affecting the entire world. Had he been thrown (and kept) in jail, it is doubtful such a catastrophe would have happened. This flip flop wearing camera wielding big mouth obviously doesn’t have the political cunning of Adolf, but it was clear in his films that he intended to collect followers to harm Jews in unknown ways. But he did mention his will to throw them in work camps - sensitive huh? Brendan was intending to use words to villify and harm a particular group of people, that happened to be Jews and that is why he was jailed.

So no, I don’t think three years of maximum security confinement is a suitable prison term for him, unless it cured him of his prejudices and will to be a public menace.

antisemite: of all the Jews I’ve met, it seems they are more ‘anti-stupid’ than anything else. But nobody said you have to like them, just that in Australia the rule is live and let live, so follow the law at least.
