New Documentary ‘A Noble Lie: Oklahoma City 1995’ My Review

A Noble Lie: Oklahoma City 1995

I just sat down last night with my husband to watch the new documentary,   A NOBLE LIE: Oklahoma City 1995.  I mention my husband because I purposely waited to watch the film with him, because I wanted the grounding of a relatively disinterested third party alongside me when watching the film for the first time.   My rational husband is not taken to to ascribing more sinister motivations to the unfortunate events of the day without warrant.  I, on the other hand, am close enough to this subject and the film as a project, as to perhaps,  not be so unbiased.

A Noble Lie is the debut documentary Free Mind Films and these guys exceeded even my high expectations.  My husband and I both agreed that the content of the film stuck admirably to the most damning and documentable facts bringing them them together in a fair and compelling manner that does justice to memory of the victims, survivors and independent  investigators of the OKC bombing.   I asked my husband if he would recommend this movie to his father who worked as a first responder at the scene of the tragedy, and he unhesitatingly replied “yes”.

We both appreciated the respect that the filmmakers afford to the intelligence of the viewer.  The narrative carries you through the story in a way that progresses naturally avoiding the common and off putting mistake often made by artists of this genre, of forcing the viewer further out in their conclusions than simple logic compels.  At the same time A Noble Lie also manages to touch upon some the more intriguing, less well known and more difficult to fit pieces of the puzzle without distracting from the solidity of the movie.  The film comes complete with an extensive bibliography so that you can fact check the sources and hopefully, even do some further research on your own.

Rather than compelling by sensationalizing, this film is compelling because of its clarity.   A Noble Lie never stoops-it simply presents.  Step by step, clearly and factually,  this documentary demonstrates that the story we have been asked to accept, is simply untrue adding newly uncovered information that builds upon what is already known.  If before you merely suspected that we have all been shortchanged and the deaths of those murdered that day on April 19th 1995 have not been served the  justice, after watching A Noble Lie you will be certain of it.

A Noble Lie lets us catch up with some of  those that for so many years have refused to turn away from the uncomfortable facts surrounding the Oklahoma City bombing, those who have not been deterred from seeking the truth and continue to hold our government officials to account.  It provides the basis for keeping those noble efforts alive and provides the impetuous for a new generation to keep pushing for justice.

Through interviews with those who still carry the pain and questions of the Oklahoma City bombing with them every day, we realize that what bombing survivor V.Z.  Lawton repeatedly reminds us of is absolutely true-that without truth, there is no justice.

I don’t know if justice will ever be served to all of those responsible for Oklahoma City bombing but A Noble Lie certainly does justice to those whose lives are forever changed by the tragedy.

“Jim has a way of breaking facts loose that is un-rivaled in this town. Its a shame that there seems to be no place for serious journalists in the mainstream media, but perhaps that will change. I have always counted on Redden to report the facts, with accuracy and objectivity.” . . .writes one fan about Jim Reddens work.

Joining me in studio will be Andrew Griffin, our own ‘Red Dirt Reporter’ from Oklahoma Watchdog and the Red Dirt Report and Chris Emery, Documentarian, Founder and Host of Radio Free Oklahoma.


We will be asking Mr. Redden for his thoughts on why the media seems more and more to be falling down on their job.

Snitch Culture, Redden’s first book released in December 2000 is a must read for privacy buffs or anyone who wonders how we arrived in the surveillance society we find ourselves in today. The book is packed with facts about our “Snitch Culture” and traces the history of surveillance back to the very beginning

A great Interview with Jim Redden about his book here

Redden covers how the government recruits informants, private intelligence networks, surveillance technology (including facial recognition cameras), and some of the worst spy scandals in our history. This book is an invaluable reference manual for me!

It covers history, all about informants, political spying (both left and right), private intelligence networks, surveillance tech including facial recognition, school snitching and workplace spying and a whole lot more.

In his work as a journalist over the years, Jim has covered some intriguing murder mysteries and has much insight into the criminal justice system. He also has an interest in political movements

Radio Free Oklahoma Needs Help

 

Chris Emery and Holland O. Van den Nieuwenhof

Chris Emery and Holland O. Van den Nieuwenhof

Hello fellow freedom-lovers, greetings from the support staff of Radio Free Oklahoma. RFOK is a non-profit low-power FM radio station broadcasting from Oklahoma City on 107.1 FM. We are friends with similar stations broadcasting all or some of our content in Tulsa on 91.1 FM, in Durant on 92.3 FM and in Guthrie on 95.3 FM. RFOK is proud to feature the work of Alex Jones, Michael Badnarik, Dr. Katherine Albrecht and many other radio hosts who voice the freedom message to America.RFOK is also proud to host a locally produced radio show featuring Holland O. Van den Nieuwenhof and Chris Emery, which focuses on local activism and national events. This show is also called Radio Free Oklahoma and has been privileged to showcase the views of outstanding figures in the liberty movement like Charles Key, Mark Lehrner, Porter Davis, Don Harkin and Ingri Casell of the Idaho Observer, Dr. Stan Monteith, Norma Sapp, Jack Blood of Deadline Live and many others. You can peruse further information about our show plus showtimes and our archives on http://ruleoflawradio.com

RFOK the radio station was started in May of 2006 by a very small group of individuals in the OKC area who wanted to find a way to get the message of liberty out in the most effective way possible. Almost entirely self-funded, we faced a nine-month cessation of broadcasting when our hard-working equipment finally gave out. After scavenging for more, RFOK was on the air again in March of 2008.

Now RFOK is facing possibly another obstacle in our near future, as our equipment probably only has two to three months left in its useful service life. Simultaneously, we have engaged the services of a sympathetic computer programmer to revamp our programming capabilities, as we have relied upon other radio networks for our programming schedule. In fact, it was this programmer who discovered the corrosion eating away at our transmitter and CPU that will ultimately prove fatal.

So now the support staff of Radio Free Oklahoma has decided to publicly solicit donations for the first time to ensure that we do not face another interruption in our programming, as we feel that current events dictate that we maintain a continuous presence on the airwaves in Oklahoma. This is the first time that we have had to do this, and we would appreciate your support and input as we face this challenge. Our paypal account is here: http://tinyurl.com/988c83

The programmer we have retained normally works at a rate of $275 per hour, but has agreed to put in the work for us for a flat rate of $1000. Furthermore we are seeking additional funds to upgrade our broadcasting capabilities. Our fundraising goal is $3000. Achieving this goal will ensure that we can continue broadcasting into the forseeable future, control our programming to ensure that we meet the market demand of our freedom-loving listeners and upgrade our broadcasting capabilities to reach out to as many listeners as possible.
http://tinyurl.com/988c83

I know we all face harsh economic realities. The support staff of RFOK is also dealing with these realities and have stretched themselves to the limit for the continuance of our goal of bringing suppressed information to the airwaves over Oklahoma City and beyond. Please help us in this trying time and contribute to the freedom message being broadcast daily, 24 hours a day to the good people of Oklahoma. Any amount of donation will help. Given the relatively low fund-raising goal we have set, even the smallest donation from the majority of the people we are reaching out to will ensure we reach our goal. Reach out and donate at http://tinyurl.com/988c83. Note: although we are non-profit, donations are NOT deductible and therefore appreciated that much more.

Also any input you may have on our programming choices is appreciated, so let us know what you want to hear.

Thank you,

Radio Free Oklahoma
