Blechhh!: Hollywood Releases Valerie Plame Propaganda Flick Trailer (Starring Guess Who?)

By Debbie Schlussel

On this site, I’ve warned against Bush revisionism on the right, in which we forget some of Bush’s disasters in immigration enforcement, pandering to Muslims, etc.  Forgetting all of that will get us yet another useless GOP Prez just like him.  But, then, there is Bush revisionism on the left, extremely dangerous and malicious and portrayed as a form of “history” by Hollywood through a series of dud movies, which thankfully bomb like Islamic IEDs.


Today, Summit–the studio behind the Valerie Plame/Joe Wilson bio-ganda flick, “Fair Game” (based on former CIA employee Plame’s book of the same name)–released the trailer to the movie, and studio publicists sent it to me.  Posted below, it stars our favorite Hollywood neo-Marxist nutjob alter ego of Jeff Spicoli, Sean Penn. Figures.

Reality Check:  The Wilsons are far leftists, who’ve always had and operated within a very left-wing agenda.  Despite her and his denials to the contrary, Valerie Plame (played in the movie by Naomi Watts) personally handpicked and sent her husband to  Niger because she wanted him to deliver a negative report that would hurt Bush on the Iraq front and discredit reports that Saddam Hussein sought ingredients for Weapons of Mass Destruction. Instead, Wilson came back with a report that bolstered the (later discredited) reports that Saddam did try to buy “yellowcake” iron ore from Niger.  And so Plame and other CIA officials downplayed hubby’s report and tried to spin it the other way in his later statements. The late New York Times columnist and Jewish conservative, William Safire, wrote a column that succinctly describes the whole thing (my late father rightly insisted I read it).

The claims in the Wilson and Plame books of lying by President Bush–which will no doubt be a theme in this movie–have been repeatedly discredited as lies, themselves.  And that’s in addition to the Plame-Wilsons’ lies about what Wilson reported upon returning from Niger. Two government reports show that Wilson, himself, lied to the Senate Intelligence Committee about what his 2002 report actually said.

But, don’t worry, you won’t see any of that here. And, by the way, Plame was an ambassador’s wife. Every evil, anti-American country always assumes the U.S. ambassador’s wife is a spy. Wake up, people. No-one hurt this whining desk jockey chick from the CIA. She’s laughin’ all the way to the bank. Cha-ching. Haven’t we heard enough from this couple, already? The movie debuts in early November, and I predict it’ll be a dud. Who cares? And let’s face it: if Valerie Plame were ugly, this story wouldn’t even have had its undeserved, over-hyped 15 minutes, nor would she.

Hmmm . . . when does the movie, “Unfair Game: The Scooter Libby Story” come out? I think that one would be more worthy. The liars here, Richard Armitage, Joe Wilson,and Valerie Plame, are all free and unblemished. And but for a commutation of his sentence, Libby would be in prison and, regardless, has a criminal record and lost his law license. I think I’d probably like the 1995 version of “Fair Game” better–trailer below. Looks far more honest, entertaining, and enlightening.

The story ALWAYS gets me Rumplestiltskin stomping mad. Those dirtbag Liberals are too blind and stupid to see that this story illustrates an outright miscarriage of justice…of the sort that is suppose to be THE CORE of Liberal beliefs. If they were not so stupid and blind apologists for the left, they’d be in high dudgeon over a story that destroys an innocent man’s life (Scooter Libby) and never touches the REAL person to have leaked (Richard Armitage).

Who the hell in their right mind would wanna see such a fantasy build on top of shameless lies? Shame on the profligate lying DB couple of Plame and Wilson. I would have defected from the LEFT for this pile of lies had I not defected years ago. Disgrazia!

    Just Love that expression “Rumplestiltskin stomping mad” Thanks for it – Lately, I have met people who meet this description – now I know what to call them!

    I do agree with you that this story is infuriating. The facts are out there-known- and yet the sheep on the left still trumpet the lies. If I were not so tired, I’d be Rumplestiltskin stomping mad too.

      I’m just sitting in the theater posting this on my cheap two year old smarthphone and I got to say even watching that preview (the preview just finished) is enough to really piss me off. OK, let’s assume Plame has really convinced herself she was persecuted by the Bush administration. I buy that she isn’t willing to give up the narrative. I can be charitable to her, she’s got a lot emotionally invested in this.

      But to the people producing this: it is basically public record that armitage was behind the leak. I actually lean a bit left in my sympathies but this is enough to get me disugsted with the left and it totally undermines their moral authority as proclaimed gaurdians of the truth. I used to think the left had the moral upper hand on the truth of the iraq war but now I see they are just shameless liars out to score political points. I mean the facts are out on the plame affair. The whole movie is fantasy, they even have some BS story line about an Iraqi family who supposedly died because Bush outed plame. What a joke!!

      Why can’t the left just say they are non-intervenrtionists? Thats what they really are. Saddam could have had WMDs theyd still be against the iraq war. If they were honest then they’d lessen the chance of being involved in a war say against Iran or North Korea, that theyd oppose too, I mean by focusing so much on the BS WMD narrative they really have misrepresented their stance on war and peace.

      Oh well movie is starting…

The media did a good job of spinning a scandal out of nothing and it destroyed the life of a good man named Scooter Libby. Will they ever apologize to him? Don’t hold your breath waiting for them to ever give him his reputation back.

In the meantime, the liars and frauds like Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame rake in the big bucks. The way of the world.

Of course Saddam was looking to buy uranium ore.
Nobody really questioned that. The lie was that Saddam actually bought that uranium ore.
There is a difference between “looking” and actually getting it…

At the beggining Saddam “have weapons of mass destruction”.
After his defeat Bush & Co. admits that there were none.
Now, when details are coming out on how lie was produced, you claim that “Saddam must have had weapon of mass destruction”.
So again… where is it?

Long time ago Saddam indeed was trying to make nuclear bombs, and IDF bombed his reactor with F-16.
If it was really about nuclear weapon, it is a way to go, another airstrikes would do just fine.
But true problem was with keeping Saddam alive… he had chemical weapons, invoices for them issued by USA, sweet photos with Donald Rumsfeld, and MANY interesting stories to tell about Iraq-USA cooperation.

Saddam trial and execution was just too similar to Franz Kafka novel.

It doesn’t mean Saddam wasn’t evil… he was. But the Iraqis can’t live with and love with each other and I’m soo glad we finally left. If they want to kill each other, that’s none of our business. They’ll never be threat to their neighbors again for a long time to come.

NormanF on August 19, 2010 at 8:35 pm

Good article. These two publicity whores are just rotten.

samurai on August 19, 2010 at 8:36 pm

Think I can see why Sean Penn and Naomi Watts made this movie. Those two have worked together before. It reminded me of his “The Interpreter” (although that was with Nicole Kidman), although I was mixing up the name with Watt’s “The International”. Looking at a photo from “Fair Game” I thought I was looking at the earlier movie.
After checking, “The Interpreter” made $$, so I can see them doing this. They are possibly thinking $$ and Oscars.

It is a story that is more stale and moldy than last month’s bread. I had thought that even those on the left had grown weary of Val and Joe’s rather aggressive efforts at self-agrandizement through various books deals and speaches given. Valerie was a middle aged woman who had been found wanting years before and was relegated to what was practically a clerical position. Her security clearance was more of an artifact from the time when she had been given a chance to be more than a slug. As Valerie turned out to be a slug, she hung on to her meagre employment at the CIA in hopes of retiring. Plamegate was a bonanza for her and her hubby Joe. There is no need or even a reason to feel sorry for this couple.

worry01 on August 20, 2010 at 12:06 am

So where did saddam get more than 500 metric tons of yellowcake we transported from iraq to Canada?
There are multiple stories about it and how it was kept secret to keep it from being stolen.

ender on August 20, 2010 at 1:06 am

Sean Penn is in this movie?

He isn’t an actor with much range. He plays the same part, himself, in every movie.


Anyway, based on the trailer I can see that the movie is one big propagand film trashing the USA, George W. Bush, the CIA, etc., typical current Hollywood excrement.

So, Sean Penn is in this movie – means I won’t be seeing it.

It is a leftist-Hollywood anti-US, anti-Bush piece of nonsense – another reason I won’t be seeing this movie.

Naomi Watts is in this movie.


Doesn’t Naomi Watts and her agent have any skill in discerning a good script from a piece of nonsense which would better serve to clean up messes after you’ve used the toilet?

Just once I would like to see the media grow some balls and do a movie about all the dead bodies surrounding Bill and Hillary Clinton. If you think I’m kidding, just Google “Deaths surrounding Bill Clinton”. You will get the phone book. Yet nobody is willing to make this public.

Here is my summary of this movie : “Leftist bureaucrat stabs President in the back with vague public statement about Saddam Hussein and gets his own movie”. Remember “All The President’s Men” where they made a hero out of “Deep throat” even though he was just a selfish FBI hack angry at Nixon because he was passed over for promotion? What a hero he was passing FBI files on to those two idiots.

After the Plame incident, State Department issues a statement Iran stopped its nuclear program in 2003 ( They have yet to revise that statement), AND two State Department employees are arrested as spies for Cuba. Do we need any more evidence State Department is rife with Communist cockroaches?

You know, conservatives COULD start making movies. What’s stopping them?

Gerald on August 20, 2010 at 10:48 am

So you mean Fair Game hasn’t come out yet? I’ve heard about it for so long I thought it already showed up in theaters and died. And if these people are victimized sign me up for some of THAT! How much did they rake in for the work of fiction and the movie rights to same?
This has nothing to do with the pile of bovine scatology that the book was and the movie will be, but what kind of a-hole STILL parts his hair down the middle in his 50s? Does he also keep an unlit cigarette behind one ear?

Sean M on August 20, 2010 at 11:11 am

Too bad the U.S. didnt put away enemies of the state like Penns beloved Russia or Venezuela. Then he’d have been in a prison with his scum bag old man a log time before FASTIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH. I like his line in the movie about talking about his WIFE. How about Penns real wife(at the time) who starred in the movie HOUND DOG? A movie so disgusting with the rape of a child actor Dakota Fanning, that they couldn’t release it but to dvd. Which honestly even surprised me. Penns name on this movie speaks volumes. Truly disgusting.

samurai on August 20, 2010 at 11:51 am

Interesting that they plan to release this movie right around the time of the 2010 election. I expect there will be a HUGE marketing campaign, playing the trailer constantly in prime time, in an effort to influence the election without having to worry about pesky election advertising laws.

LOVED Skunky’s characterization of his anger over this story. I would like to add Robert Novak to the list of people I was extremely angry with. He KNEW that Scooter Libby was not the source of the “leak;” he KNEW that NOBODY in the White House was responsible; and yet he kept his mouth shut during the entire witch hunt, probably enjoying the non-stop attention and maintaining his smug, superior “reportorial privilege” of protecting his sources – at least until Mr. Libby was destroyed – at which point he revealed his source.

I realize Mr. Novak has since passed, but if he were here I would like to ask him how he plans to give Mr. Libby his life back.

As for this ridiculous lib movie, I guess I will shrug and ask, “So what else is new?” And who else would they cast but Sean Penn? I wonder if he has a producer credit on this one??? It’s right up his alley.

Quoting and responding to the comment by “Gerald,”

“You know, conservatives COULD start making movies. What’s stopping them?”

Gerald on August 20, 2010 at 10:48 am


The left tend to have more influence in Hollywood, mainly because the left-liberals live in a fantasy world, not reality, and they cannot hold real jobs with real responsibility, which is why the people you always see out protesting, looking dishevelled, vandalizing property, burning cars, attacking police officers, breaking shop windows, stealing property from vandalized businesses, defacating in public, attacking and beating people, all while crying that they care about the economy, the eco-system, the little guy, and more, as they do in their ecology protests, their economic summit protests, their anti-business protests, and so on, are all always lazy, jobless liberals living off the government-taxpayer, and/or their wealthy left wing, liberal parents, or their hard working Conservative parents.

Real people hold real jobs which requires real skill, such as physicians, carpenters, architects, surgeons, police officers, Network Engineers, Research Scientists, and so on.

Liberals-leftist aren’t smart enough, can’t concentrate long enough, haven’t the stick-to-it-ivness, don’t have the self discipline, or the skill to hold a real job, which is another reason they like a Nanny state government to take care of them, fix their boo boo, feed them, cloth them, give them free money, and so on.

William on August 20, 2010 at 12:20 pm

    What he said.^^^^^^^^^

    samurai on August 20, 2010 at 2:13 pm

Face it, we will never all the real facts about the nuclear material in Niger or how they ultimately “shake out” so I say leave that to historians. What I find utterly embarrassing as a citizen is that a party that always portrays itself as the patriotic party allowed itself to be played, yes played. The one thing every single person in this country should be able to agree on is outing a CIA agent is wrong. Period. Case closed. End of story. This is true regardless of what some savvy, inside the beltway people think or believe they know. There is a reason why when CIA agents die, they are not named but connoted w/an anonymous star. This is the one thing about this whole disreputable saga that is irrefutable. These agents put their lives on the line for us very day just like the military & frequently with a lot less protection or backup. We owe them & their families anonymity in return for their service. Losing sight of this one single fact will be a permanent stain on the party.

GG on May 9, 2012 at 5:28 pm

“The one thing every single person in this country should be able to agree on is outing a CIA agent is wrong.”

…ROTFLMAO…O my sides hurt…O man…

Since when, pray tell, do liberals give a flying frigola about the health and safety of CIA agents? More specifically, loyal American CIA agents? The only reason liberal commies would ever support an actual real live CIA agent is because the agent was NOT loyal!!! Liberals would support a DOUBLE agent, but never an actual loyal American.

So, buzz off with your lies!!!
