Our beloved Nurse Claire now has her own blog, nurseclairesays.com!! The topic at hand in her first post is the Sound of Freedom movie, which I have been discussing with her at length these last two months. The “based on a true story” story is a stretch, with nearly all the details being fabricated by the subject/producer Tim Ballard. Video interviews are easily searched (she includes a twitter thread at her post) where Ballard retells with breathtaking drama the armed raids, the battles at the border, how the trafficked boy leapt into his hands of freedom! None of that ever happened, as the court records prove. Sum ting wong. Nurse Claire, take it away!
This morning, a friend texted to ask if I wanted to see the Caviezel movie “the Sound of Freedom”. My answer? A resounding no.
That’s not to say child trafficking isn’t real. I believe that it is. I believe sex abuse is an enormous problem (for anyone who doesn’t, please read The Franklin Coverup, which predates the Q nonsense). However, this movie smells really bad to me, and here’s why.
The movie features the story of Tim Ballard, a former ICE agent, recounting an allegedly true story of his encounter with the overwhelming issue of child sex trafficking. He’s given multiple interviews in both print media and video detailing the case featured in the movie (calling it his origin story), and viewers are told the movie is based on a true story.
Most reasonable adults understand that “based on a true story” means its mostly true but some creative liberties have been taken. The problem is, when we compare Ballard’s own words, which mirror the movie’s plot, with actual court records of the case the movie focuses on, we see that creative license has been taken with nearly the entire thing: The boy was an American (not Mexican as alleged by Ballard), he was taken across the border with the knowledge and consent of his family, there was no “raid” as Ballard tells in his origin story, the sister was not being trafficked as portrayed in the movie, and on & on. Really, Ballard’s entire narrative (and the SoF plot) is debunked by the court records, which are available online.
I’m struggling to find any truth to the movie. Really, what we have here is a typical case of pedophilia where the victim was molested by a trusted family friend. This is NOT a story of machine-gun, muscle-laden heroes rescuing children from a mass sex trafficking ring. Please note: pedophilia is horrific & gravely evil. I am not trying to make light of the plight of this young boy who has undoubtedly suffered so much. But his story has been used for stolen valor, in my opinion.
Therefore, I see no reason to spend my time and money on what appears to be a psy-op of some sort. Why not just declare the movie to be a fictional story that highlights the plight of trafficking victims? Why go through all the trouble to convince people this is real & Ballard is some sort of single-handed hero? Why all the adversity-marketing, convincing good people that “they” don’t want you to see this? Tickets for this movie went on sale in June, weeks before its release in July, with heavy social-media marketing. And Caviezel himself appears at the end of the movie encouraging viewers to buy more tickets so they can help end child sex trafficking. Huh?? How does buying tickets to a fictional movie end child sex trafficking?
