Australian Thought Police Target Free Speech

Andrew Puhanic, Contributor
Activist Post

Australian health authorities have launched an attack on radio host Leon Pittard after a guest on his Fairdinkum Radio Show revealed the extent to which authorities are restricting free speech when it comes to discussing natural medicines.

The story began when Mr. Pittard posted an article and a podcast entitled “Australian government’s attack on health freedom,” which featured an interview between the radio host and Meryl Dorey of the Australian Vaccination Network.

During the interview, Ms Dorey referred to ‘Black Salve’, a product that is banned by the Theraputic Goods Administration. Her exact words were:
As a result of that experience she found a treatment that’s been used for at least 2000 years called black salve. And it’s a combination of herbs and minerals that is applied topically to cancer and it’s called nature’s scalpel. Now I’ve used it myself on a cancer that I had on my shoulder. I’ve got to tell you, it is like a scalpel, it cut it out in a perfect circle. And it got rid of it completely. So, the Australian government several years ago banned the use of black salve on humans and you could only buy it for animals. As of a couple of weeks ago you’re not even allowed to sell it for animal use. Original interview transcript
It is this small paragraph that has come under fire from the Therapeutic Goods Administration via their Complaints Resolution Panel, who have claimed to have received a complaint of 14 pages detailing regulation that has allegedly been broken.

The claim in the letter of complaint is that Meryl Dorey has advertised and promoted ‘Black Salve,’ a banned substance, and Leon Pittard has further promoted and advertised ‘Black Salve’ by publishing the interview. The letter from the complainant is clearly a carefully crafted document containing exhaustive legal language.

The response from radio host Leon Pittard was as follows:
See, this is incredible because what this is opening up, this is the thin edge of the wedge of total surveillance of all information sharing to… by government bureaucracies to oversee every piece of information that the public receives. And therefore even any information sharing website, and let’s take the subject of fluoride, that may be opposite to public policy, will be subject to litigation or court action even though you may not be selling fluoride – it’s the government selling fluoride – but you’re the person that is sharing the other side of the story. Therefore you will be subject to litigation because it is against what the public system has already incorporated. Original interview transcript
Four pivotal points

There are four aspects to this case that need to be addressed:
  • The process of presuming guilt.
  • The question of advertising.
  • Is a discussion about a recently banned product a crime.
  • A disclaimer was added at the end of the interview encouraging people to do their own research.

It is a principle of Common Law which has its roots in Biblical Law; That no man can be tried for a crime without an accuser, and that an accused person has a right to a trial by a jury of his peers, and that a man has a presumption of innocence until proven guilty.

In this case the ‘Complainant’ has requested to be ‘anonymous’? So who is this complainant? Is he merely acting as an operative for the department? Is he the department? Certainly the accused would not know. So this is how it works.

The complainant lodges his 14 pages of complaint showing where the law has been broken, the department accepts the complainants decision. “We interpret the complaint as alleging breaches of sections 42C, 42DP and 42DM of the Act and sections 4(1)(b), 4(2)(a), 4(2)(b), 4(2)(c), 4(2)(d), 4(2)(e), 4(7), 5(2) and 6(3) of the Code.

Notice is given, and the accused must respond to prove he is not guilty? “You should provide a response to each allegation.” In other words the accused has been deemed guilty first. Guilty until proven innocent, the opposite of common law.


The dictionary definition is:
1. the act or practice of calling public attention to one’s product, service, need, etc., especially by paid announcements in newspapers and magazines, over radio or television, on billboards, etc.: to get more customers by advertising. 2. paid announcements; advertisements.
The reality of this case is that there is no advertising or any intention of advertising of any product on Fairdinkum Radio. The only product that Fairdinkum Radio consistently advertises is Individuality, Freedom and Truth. And in the interest of these principles, this radio site hosts public discussion and commentary about where these issues are directly affected. And we make no apology and will continue to advertise Individuality, Freedom and Truth which includes discussion of government corruption, treason, intimidation and attempted censorship.

This is the real issue. Are we able to advertise freedom of expression and carry out freedom of expression over a political subject? This is the heart of the matter.

Free speech

The context of the conversation was two individuals discussing the politics surrounding government's assault on free choice in decision making. Is discussing a banned substance a crime? Is discussing the benefits of a banned substance through personal experience a crime? Is discussing the availability of information about a banned substance a crime? Is discussing the benefits of a banned substance as believed by any person a crime?

Apparently so, but I would suggest only according to the TGA. This raises serious questions about what is free speech and does it exist. Lets look at another example.

Comfrey is an herb that is partially banned for therapeutic use in Australia. Yet I have in my possession a book by Jethro Kloss written in 1939, where he states: “Powerful remedy in coughs, catarrh, ulcerated or inflammation of the lungs, consumption, haemorrhage…the best remedy for bloody urine.” Back to Eden p235.

Under the current TGA premise it is using, it is not possible to discuss this ‘product’ being a herb, being used for therapeutic use as it would be judged as ‘promoting’ its use. Secondly it is not possible to discuss the book as this would be: ‘advertising’ the book, because we have talked about it in conversation. And thirdly a person could not talk about the benefits of the herb because this would be advertising the banned substance and the book that promotes it.

Lets take another example of heroin. Heroin is a banned substance, yet it is acceptable to talk about it publicly; it is acceptable to hear testimony from a user that may believe it has benefited him. (Even if in the majority of the people's minds he is wrong) In fact there are ‘heroin injecting clinics’ totally supported and sponsored by government, and debate is allowable with discussion is encouraged.

The question really comes to this. Can we as Australians discuss and openly disagree with a government decision on anything? Can we advocate the opposite position of government by using personal testimony as evidence? Can we discuss or advocate without fear of penalty?


At the end of the interview a disclaimer was given, which reads:
Ladies and Gentlemen, a return to good health is what we need, eating good quality foods and removing ourselves as much as we can from the chemical assaults that we are under today. And I encourage you all to investigate the other side of the story with vaccinations. Go to the Australian Vaccination Network website. I encourage you all not to vaccinate until you do the research and if you choose to vaccinate after you do the research that’s your privilege, but we encourage you to do the research, read and investigate, and look at the statistics. Meryl, it’s been great speaking with you again. Is there anything you’d like to add in closing?

The TGA process allows an anonymous accuser to declare the verdict to the department. It would seem that the anonymous accuser is in collusion with the department, and especially if this anonymous accuser is proved to be a former accuser whose accusation has been defeated in the past but is continuing to harass through the use of a government body.

Some questions:
  1. Who is the informant?
  2. What is his interest in Black Salve?
  3. Is he known by or does he have a cordial relationship with the department? Has he lodged previous complaints against the accused? 
  4. If it is a fact that this informant is in collusion with this government body, then possible corruption exists.
There is no advertising present. There is no intention to advertise. There is no benefit or financial transfer of money, goods or anything between Fairdinkum Radio and the Australian Vaccination Network. Advertising is the legal tool being used in an attempt to intimidate both parties. It seems, that the real reason behind the action is an attempt to censor both parties – hiding in plain view – an attack on free speech.

Can an Australian citizen discuss openly a banned substance? Can an Australian citizen discuss openly the benefits of a banned substance? Can we as Australians discuss and openly disagree with a Government decision on anything? Can we advocate the opposite position of government by using personal testimony as evidence? Can we discuss or advocate anything without fear of penalty?

There have been many recent cases of attempts by government and their associated organs of state to intimidate and silence both critics, commentators and whistleblowers. No where has this been more obvious than in the Climate Change debate, where Fairdinkum Radio has been an active participant in the sharing of information against government policy. See ‘A changing Australia’ article.

Fairdinkum Radio has been openly discussing and documenting the aims of Social Engineers for a Technocracy: The centralisation, control and allocation of all resources, all health, all education, all economy, and every aspect of life. Every aspect of life is to be certified, registered, taxed and controlled, and this goal is already well realised. This control is to be monitored by the ‘Thought Police’ through their informants. The ‘Thought Police’ will regulate what you can or cannot say. If you do not obey you will be penalised.

This is what this case is about: In the book 1984, George Orwell foresaw a Totalitarian society where people lived in fear of the ‘Thought Police’. Everything they said was monitored and controlled. This is 1984 in 2012!

This Global Management Plan is already well advanced, with the UN openly calling for World Government as the answer to the world's problems. Governments worldwide are economically disarming their countries in order for world banking interests to step in and implement ‘austerity’ to save their economies. The Carbon Tax just one small part of the overall plan, it is not a conspiracy, it is fact, it is now law.

All outspoken critics of government policy have been the target of legal intimidation and threat. With Members of Parliament, Scientists, Professors, Academics and Journalists openly advocating that critics be silenced through penalties dished out by new media authorities specifically set up to keep watch on all communication, even the blog network.

Some recent examples are:
Clive Hamilton: “….including the canvassing of ‘emergency’ responses including the suspension of democratic processes.”

The Australian 22/6/2011 Ian Chubb. “AUSTRALIA’S chief scientist Ian Chubb has waded into the highly charged debate surrounding climate change, arguing people who disagree with the scientific evidence supporting human-induced global warming do not 'deserve equal weight'".

Richard Glover. SMH. 6.6.11. The Dangers of Bone Headed Beliefs. “Surely it’s time for climate-change deniers to have their opinions forcibly tattooed on their bodies. Not necessarily on the forehead; I’m a reasonable man. Just something along their arm or across their chest so their grandchildren could say, 'Really? You were one of the ones who tried to stop the world doing something? And why exactly was that, granddad?'"

Jill Singer. Herald Sun 22.6.11 “Really? I’m prepared to keep an open mind and propose another stunt for climate sceptics – put your strong views to the test by exposing yourselves to high concentrations of either carbon dioxide or some other colourless, odourless gas – say, carbon monoxide. You wouldn’t see or smell anything. Nor would your anti-science nonsense be heard of again. How very refreshing.”

These examples along with numerous calls for control of media are evidence that the control agenda is being ramped up.

This case will help answer what free speech we have left in Australia in 2012.

"It would seem that the anonymous accuser is in collusion with the department..." No doubt about it. If it walks like a Duck, and quacks like a Duck, it is a Duck. Having worked in the natural supplement industry for 8 years in the US, I can assure you that gubmint agents routinely call companies posing as consumers asking questions about products just to trap the company. They do it ALL the time. Only cowards remain anonymous when striking legal blows. said...

sounds a lot like the FDA/?

Prohibitions don't work with recreational substances - they will work even less with healing substances. And if and when the public realizes their health and well being are being sold out by their elected officials there will be a robust response, hence the issue morphing into a free speech issue - fear.

jill singer promoting murder ok? chub cheif idiot and criminals all how dare they the fascists and if those ignoring science shouldnt be given equal weight then whose science? the theatrical carbonazi science is fraud writ large and other science quickly proves it. CANT ADVERTISE HERBS witch burnings and the royal acadamy or whatever called of surgeons they started banning and attacking true healers with the help of the british parliament 500 or so years ago by bulshit rules and criminal coralling of thought and action. Criminals one and all and the venal media continues to pander to the elites and their health ruining controls. The government is criminal, all of them and their actions are an assault on all of us: under their ridiculous rule we have been subject to an awful campaign to fuck up the health of humanity and its home.

How stupid do you have to be to believe something called "black salve" discovered 2000 years ago will cure cancer???

"anonymous accuser" I suspect is the Australian Sceptics who have ties to the pharmaceutical industry. For the last 2 or 3 years they have been harassing Dorey.
BTW I've used Black Salve with success. Anonymous your right, one shouldn't "believe" in black salve. Do a little research and if you have the opportunity, try it.

I'm really sick and tired of 'suits' telling 'costumes' to tell 'me' how to live my life. It is all about stripping away our choices on a personal level, as in Agenda 21. They can stick it, I live my life how I please. If some costume on a power trip decides to lock me up, then so be it, but I do hold grudges and always get even. Julia Gillard has bean officially charged with Treason and as such cannot sit in Parliament, never mind be the PM. The Governor General now works for the Government, yet has kept hold of the Queens seal, this is a massive conflict of interest, her job is to keep an eye on Government, not work for them. Why doesn't anyone do reports on this. I understand the MSM keeping quiet, but FFS this is serious in Australia, and hardly anyone knows about it.

Black Salve used incorrectly can for example eat your whole face off. So there is a reason for that being banned. However, a lot of natural medicine is on the edge of being removed from people and a lot is to blame on big pharma. They don't want you to know that a herb you can grow in your garden can be used to cure that thing you have, they can't make money like that. So with a lot of pushing they get what they want and the governments are too stupid to do their own research, and the person who does the research goes to a big medicinal company who has been brainwashed into believing pharma is the only way, and natural can be extremely dangerous. Just too many stupid people caught in the system unfortunately.

Have made and used black salve on my self and a couple of dogs and one dog had a tumor on its neck the size of half a tennis ball. it took it out completely in 3days and it was completely healed over in 30 days so you cant tell me it doesn't work

Black salve does cure skin cancer - It's FANTASTIC!!
I do not have to prove it to anyone I know from personal experience. It draws all the cancer out and totally heals it. Everyone should know about it, be able to choose to use it and definitely freely discuss it.
There is a process that can be unsightly for a while but after 2 weeks your body heals completely. If it's a big cancer there may be a small scar but not as bad as surgery or the stupid prescribed creams that can cause irreversible damage and does not cure anything. I have seen people after using a cancer cream that seriously look like they have had an overdose of botox!
Stuff the scum that say I can't use it! Stuff the scum that say I can't buy it!Stuff the scum that say I can't talk about it and Stuff the scum that says we are babies and they are parenting us for our own good. I make decisions for myself.

You can bet your bottom dollar if FDA/TGA are jumping all over it , it works ,just like MMS [miracle mineral solution] H2O2 [hydrogen peroxide] ACA [apple cider vinegar],Colloidal Silver have all copped a bashing by these mobs of guv misinformation cretins. Down here at the mo we've many adds on TV pushing once a day vit D capsules containing 1000 iu , well if you don't live in the tropics you will be deficient in vit D in the winter months and to get back up with supplements you will need 8000 iu per day for 2 weeks dropping back to 5000 iu. Years ago we ate more fish and offal [liver etc] and food quality was far better , we got by. Mid day sun if arms, legs and midrift are exposed [without cacinogenic sun creams] in 20 mins you will recieve up to 50'000iu's, you can't OD,Some say it is not a simple vitamin but a hormone generator and along with selenium , good quality vit C and E you can fight off most things and that is what they don't want us doing .... Dave in Ozz...... PS you have to be a bit carefull with selenium, to much is toxic

This article is garbage, "black salve" is not a banned substance. What is banned is to make claims that are not backed up by evidence. The evolution of modern evidence based medicine from the quackery and charlatanism of the dark ages is a slow and ongoing process, and is not helped by anti-intellectual anti-scientific bullshit like this. According to these people any treatment that are back up by science should not be allowed, but any con artist should be allowed to make any claim about the effectiveness of their worthless product without any evidence.

Anonymous Ignoramous! "to make claims that are not backed up by evidence" How bout 2000+ years of successful use? Science is corrupted it is not about real discovery any more but about who's paying for it and what gains they make by discovering what the idiots want them to. The health industry has decided that fluoride, mercury and aluminium is good for us backed up by scientific evidence, nutrients are now declared toxic - HUH????? give me the dark ages and quackery at least it's based something better than deadly poisons.

The snake oil salesmen do not have to prove that their slimming pills work but are OK with the TDA oddly enough. The TGA is financed by the pharmaceutical companies and so controlled by same.
