Naomi Watts and Sean Penn Deliver a First Rate Historical Account of an Adminstration Determined to Go to War At All Costs

4 out of 5 Stars

by Johnny Punish

My first reaction to the movie I have just viewed was “I am very sad”.   After almost 2 hours of being reminded how horrible U.S. activities in Iraq were almost 10 years ago, I was taken back to a place that I was hoping to gloss over and forget.

In the year 2011, I am relatively happy.  The Obama administration, while not perfect, does NOT yet seem to be engaging in horrific cover-ups, lies, and deceptions that are resulting in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people overseas and the wholesale destruction of our once great moral compass at home.  So a return to those early George W. Bush days when we believed our President while he and his assigns were strategically duping us and sacrificing our collective selves for the benefit of their small gang of warmongering thugs was just heart wrenching. 

Passed the anger years ago, the only real reaction was “I am sad” in that I cried for us as Americans who’ve been so badly beat up by the actions of that rogue President.

On a side note, yesterday, potential candidate for President Donald Trump said Barack Obama was the worst president in history.  Of course, he offered no basis for his statement and clearly, he has not seen Fair Game because, James Buchanan notwithstanding, it’s clear the George W. Bush should be issued this dubious award. Thinking out loud, does the academy of motion pictures offer a lifetime achievement award for biggest jerk-off in history?  I am just saying…..

Anyway, for those reading this review that don’t know, Valerie Plame’s status as a CIA agent was revealed by White House officials allegedly out to discredit her husband after he wrote a 2003 New York Times op-ed piece saying that the Bush administration had manipulated intelligence about weapons of mass destruction to justify the invasion of Iraq.

Valerie Plame was outted by a disloyal rogue junta in the White House and the CIA was in a panic mode as all agents were now subjected to the whim of an out of control White House that put it’s agenda ahead of it’s fellow loyal patriotic Americans who sacrificed their lives in defense of it’s country.

Cast & Credits

Valerie Plame:  Naomi Watts
Joseph Wilson: Sean Penn

Summit Entertainment presents a film directed by Doug Liman. Written by Jez Butterworth and John-Henry Butterworth, based on the books The Politics of Truth by Joseph Wilson and Fair Game by Valerie Plame Wilson. Running time: 106 minutes. Rated PG-13 (for some language).

Starring Naomi Watts as the beautiful loyal and very serious Valerie Plame and Sean Penn at the combative Ambassador Joe Wilson, Valerie’s husband, the movie was blessed with outstanding actors who could pull this movie together and tell the story that most of us didn’t really want to know in that we went to war in Iraq because President George W. Bush and his gang wanted war and created the atmosphere where they could go to war with the American public cheering for them.

Valerie Plame and Naomi Watts on the Fair Game Set

Naomi Watts is strikingly very close in resemblance to the real Valerie Plame and that created an excellent start to getting the viewer into her mind.  Moreover, her performance was superb…riveting as one can really believe she was Valerie Plame

With Sean Penn, we get arguably, one of America’s greatest actors.  His all-in approach to acting is world class and compelling as usual.  Whether he’s playing Jeff Spicoli in Fast Times at Ridgemont High or Joe Wilson in Fair Game, Penn is the character and that always makes for a movie that we can nosh on.

There is one scene in particular that demonstrates how far George W. Bush took down our country duping and dirty pitching his way to immortal stardom as the biggest jerk-off in history when a taxi-driver from Sierra Leone was telling passenger Joe Wilson that America was such a great place and not like Sierra Leone which was super corrupt.  Joe Wilson, upon hearing this lovely happy to be in America blue collar guy believed he was in the most sacred and corrupt free place on earth, asked the man to stop the car so he can get out and walk instead of being forced to deceptively re-inforce the beliefs of this blissful new American.  Frankly, I thought Joe Wilson was going to hurl right there as he was so distraught knowing that the most corrupt people in the whole world were right there outside his window and the American peoples thought that the guys wearing the tailored blue and brown suits were the good guys.

And that’s the story of Fair Game.   It illustrates that the USA during the Bush Administration took us 1000 times more past what was President Nixon’s Watergate and into a realm of such unbelievable and unspeakable crimes against humanity that we are still paralyzed and will be feeling its effects for years to come.  While Nixon was forced to resign over stealing documents at Democratic headquarters, no doubt a crime.  What George W. Bush and his assigns did make Nixon’s crime look like Lindsay Lohan stealing a necklace from some small town jewelry shop. 

With Scooter Libby going to jail and then getting pardoned by his godfather, unlike Nixon, these uber criminals got away with it and Obama still does not have the temerity to do anything about it.  And that’s what makes this writer so sad.  We’ve lost so much.  

Even though the movie will make the viewer angry and sad, Fair Game is a movie that all Americans should see and allow themselves to feel the contempt and disrespect.  It’s a good way to be reminded that our government does lie to us and we need to continue to keep our collective heads out of the sand and strike back against the tyranny. 

Why the likes of George W. Bush, Karl Rove, and Dick Cheney wouldn’t appreciate our disposition, I would say they would be “Fair Game”.  Don’t ya think?

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
