Newsflash: George Clooney doesn’t know N. Korea hacked Sony

What? George Clooney knows that N. Korea hacked Sony? Really?

by Jon Rappoport

December 20, 2014

“…it [the Sony hack] wasn’t just probably North Korea; it was North Korea.” — George Clooney, Deadline Hollywood.

This article isn’t about new repressive Internet legislation, or Sony pulling the Interview movie, or theaters refusing to show it, or lawyers’ advice, or TMZ fodder.

It’s about Hollywood stars and how they claim to know what they know.

It’s simple, really. They’re naïve. They’re given that precious breathless thing: inside access. That’s the game.

You want a star to promote your narrative or your cause? Take him inside closed doors and hand him privileged information.

Well, not information. Conclusions based on secret “information.”

Clooney states that N. Korea hacked Sony? Somebody in Washington told him so: “Look, George, we know, okay? It’s for sure. We scoped it out. No question about it. We investigated. You can take it to the bank. We won’t release details, but I can tell you, as a friend, it’s true. Slam-dunk. Pay no attention to the idiots at Wired. They’re all speculating. They don’t know what we know. They can’t.”

Well, that’s it then. The hacker wasn’t the NSA or some other fed agency. It wasn’t an independent group. It wasn’t an insider at Sony. It was N. Korea.

This is the routine, over and over again with stars.

“Listen, GMO farming will save Africa. We have the data. Forget the crazies running around saying Monsanto is Satan. We’ve done the studies. This is Science.”

“We had nothing to do with the mess in the Ukraine. I promise you. That’s Russian propaganda.”

Don’t believe the people who say we’re funding terrorists. That’s crap.”

The star doesn’t have to get his news from the NY Times. He can get it from the FBI, from the CIA, from the White House. The inside scoop.

Privilege. Access. Special briefings off the record. He’s a friend. Which is to say, he’s vulnerable. He can be used. He normally sees events at the level of one-inch deep, so when he’s handed “special” knowledge, he’s happy. He thinks he’s reached the bottom.

And his pals in government are true-blue, so he has to protect them. He can go off and say corporations are destroying America, but he can’t say they’re doing it with the collusion of the government. No, legislators are victims of corporate $$ and lobbying and can’t do anything about it. They can’t say no. It’s not their fault.

He especially can’t say the Democrats and the Republicans are both decimating the country, or that, on the really important issues like Globalism, both parties are on the same page.

Nor can he suddenly drift out of the conventional orbit and pick an issue on his own and blindside his government friends. Like the FDA, for example, who approve drugs that kill, at minimum, 100,000 Americans every year, like clockwork. Or the Fed Reserve, that august group of bankers who pretend they’re a federal agency and engineer booms and busts. Or the CDC, for whom lying is a way of life.

No surprises. Stay within the boundaries. Left vs. Right, progressives vs. liberals. Feed the conventional narrative.

The Matrix Revealed

The star doesn’t quite realize or admit that what he’s getting from “the inside” is just more conventional narrative dressed up with hush-hush.

And why didn’t the other big movie studios rally around Sony and stand together against a perceived intimidation tactic and a crushing of free speech?

Aside from the usual reasons—competition with Sony in the marketplace, glee at seeing a competitor thrown into chaos—there was no signal from their inside friends at the White House.

The other studio execs and big-time agents didn’t get a call to come together and mount a unified defense.

Absent their own courage, which is minimal in situations like this, they stood down, they remained silent—because that’s part of their bargain with government power players, too.

“Well, I guess the White House is handling this one on an international level, since North Korea did it. Not our business. Nobody important is demanding anything of us. We shouldn’t stick our noses in, as private citizens, and unilaterally make an issue out of the 1st Amendment. Free speech, the Constitution? That’s heavy stuff. Above our pay grade…it’s government turf.”

These Hollywood execs would never consider they’re getting a blast telling them they have no control over free speech…and that the warning could be coming from those same government insider pals of theirs.

If the thought does cross their minds, they won’t be emailing each other about it.

Clooney told Deadline: “I do know something about the news world. I was sitting on the floors of newsrooms since I was seven years old, and I’ve been around them my whole life.”

Maybe that’s the problem. He’s been listening to lies and cover stories and fakery for a long time.

In his estimable movie, Syriana, he left out one factor. Among all the forces at work engineering a massive corporate merger of energy companies, the US government was such a weak sister it couldn’t affect the machinations of those corporate titans.

Again, big gov is a victim. It has no clout.


During this Sony fiscao, the US Dept. of Justice must remain silent? It can’t weigh in publicly? It can’t take the lead and deal from strength? And the State Dept., likewise, has to keep its mouth shut, too?

Obama can only make a public statement (“Sony made a mistake” in not releasing the film) days after the fact? The President also takes a back seat during the scandal?

Kim Zetter, writing at Wired, throws a monkey wrench into the US government narrative:

“…in their initial public statement, whoever hacked Sony made no mention of North Korea or the film. And in an email sent to Sony by the hackers, found in documents that leaked, there is also no mention of North Korea or the film. The email was sent to Sony executives on Nov. 21, a few days before the hack went public. Addressed to Sony Pictures CEO Michael Lynton, Chairwoman Amy Pascal and other executives, it appears to be an attempt at extortion, not an expression of political outrage or a threat of war.

“’[M]onetary compensation we want,’” the email read. ‘Pay the damage, or Sony Pictures will be bombarded as a whole. You know us very well. We never wait long. You’d better behave wisely.’

“To make matters confusing, however, the email wasn’t signed by GOP or Guardians of Peace, who have taken credit for the hack, but by ‘God’sApstls,’ a reference that also appeared in one of the malicious files used in the Sony hack.

“A person purporting to be a Guardians of Peace spokesperson then emphasized again, in an interview with CSO Online published Dec.1, that they are ‘an international organization … not under direction of any state.’ The GOP’s members include, they wrote, ‘famous figures in the politics and society from several nations such as United States, United Kingdom and France.’

“The person also said the Seth Rogen film was not the motive for the hack, but that the film was problematic nonetheless in that it exemplified Sony’s greed and fed political turmoil in the region:

“’Our aim is not at the film The Interview as Sony Pictures suggests,’ the person told CSO Online. ‘But it is widely reported as if our activity is related to The Interview..’”

power outside the matrix

Clooney is quite, quite sure the Sony hack was the work of North Korea. In his Deadline interview, he says that with a little digging, anybody should be able to figure that out.

But his version of digging appears to be a tip and an assurance from someone inside the Executive Branch, where lies and cover stories are the daily bread of life.

To put the cherry on the cake, newly discovered emails from the Sony hack reveal that the CIA has been urging movie studio execs to help in the effort against ISIS. That would be the very same ISIS the US government has been supporting in Syria.

But don’t worry. If the White House says North Korea hacked Sony, then North Korea hacked Sony. The US government is a straight shooter.

And I have condos for sale on Jupiter.

    What actual verifiable hard evidence has the US government actually provided? Bear in mind that the American people were told by no less than the White House and key members of Congress that Sadaam had weapons of mass destruction etc., etc. The US government is no longer a reliable source for anything.

  2. SamAdamsGhost says:

    I find it remarkable that grown adults actually pay attention to the ramblings of actors on matters outside of their experience.
    NEWSFLASH: they aren’t actually the heroic characters that they portray. They make up that very small population of adults who continue to pretend that they are another personality (we all do it when children) and actually get paid for doing so. Real heroes often don’t have the ‘chiseled good looks’ and bodybuilder physiques of those who only pretend to be heroic. Those external surface things have nothing to do with real courage.
    For the most part, ‘action hero’ actors are pretty harmless; just don’t pay a lot of attention to them. It’s obvious that many of them are morons. – – The truly dangerous pretenders are on Wall Street and Washington DC, faking their concern for the country and the American people.

    I am glad you addressed this, most probably “they” are playing him. His experience with news is that his father was a news anchor in Cincinnati, a local station, that’s it.. And we all know msm is lies. So that is not to his credit. I think you are right, they took him aside, inflated his ego, as in “with your status” the public will believe you. What is unfortunate is so many of “star followers” will believe. I don’t know what’s worse, the people who believe this stuff or the ones who continually tell the lies. Probably being sent up to justify internet slap-down. One msm showed Korean’s sitting at work on computers, insinuating that they are hacking. Its laughable. George is either getting paid or he really believes he is that important, that “they share” with him, and that is even more laughable if he believes that.

    It’s seems three purposes are at work in this particular cluster that should slide I would think/hope/pray into a complete fiasco.

    1. Sagging Sony revenues and stock…competing at a lively Xmas box office…part 3 of the ‘Hobbit’ is a sure fire first place…I mean I have invested into the other two, have to fine out the ending to this trilogy…so much story from such a little book…”We doh need no stinking books. It was trilogy?
    Dismal forecast on bums in the seats for “Das interview” “We knead to pump up the volume on the marketing side…ah…censorship. Americans hate censorship…they will come just to spite that little bass-terd. Let’s pretend to pull the movie…and thennnnn…release it.
    2 Clooney entering the political arena for sure this time…and more than likely Californian gubernatorial…”let’s send the kid in and see if he can hit one outta the park…maybe he the new Reagan”…but better looking….and without the chimp.
    3. The white house is begging for way to whack that little North K motherfraker…Obama :”release the dogs of wa…sorry…the movie …release the movie and let’s have the truth…dictators censoring god loving Americans…can’t have that…are the drones warming up”

    Smells like a false flag about say by the end of February…possibly sooner if the spin goes right.
    Boots on the ground byyyee..(burp)…September.

    Rinkkkkayyy dinky.

    I wish I could have a condo on Jupiter – all this political intrigue stuff is just not worth it – for the majority of us earthlings any way; a few fat cats just need more power and control; in the end they will shoot themselves, not just in the foot!

  6. paschnn says:

    “This is the routine, over and over again with stars.” Of course it is because these pampered jags are stupid yesterday, today and tomorrow.

  7. Simply stated, I think its a way to take control of the web.

  8. Big Otis says:

    Those super duper elite hackers couldn’t even hide their IP addresses?

  9. FriendshipCube says:

    I like to agree with Sony on this one. The prize is the stars, it isn’t about money. I would like if I could travel to Japan and Shake hands with some of the best Sony robots, and draw up a Sony-endorsed contract enlisting me as a general partner with full liability for all my transparent and accountable actions. Sony insiders could thence forth offer the best privileged information via the Friendship Cube Channel, profiting from both paid subscriptions and tasteful futuristic advertisements.

    • Michael Burns says:

      Sorry Graeme…admire that you’ve taken the road less traveled here…but it’s about money…even when it isn’t about money. It’s about money.
      Why the recent sell of Vaio? why are they eager to get into the tablet and smartphone?
      Why is general stock flagging?…revenues are down…its about money.
      Be careful what you wish for, you might just get it.
      This is propaganda is on the highest level…nothing like this kind publicity, a definitive marketing slam dunk.
      Project Morpheus looks promising but…your companion cube tech is a possible trend but we’re will it evolve to with a desire for the hidden the micro.

  10. John Wayne says:

    Yeah looney clooney is just enamored, ego stroked and really believes,?… Think not, cloon the loon is just playing his part, as usual? He fancies himself an important player, but he’s just another blow fart, georgie is wide awake, to imply he’s not is ludicrous. These pansy ass actors would sell you out for crumbs, funny thing is that there is no place in liberty for them, they will not be adored in the near future. They will probably be the target of the less fortunate, so sad muahhhh

    What robinsoncaruso1 said! The number 1 cover up job right now by the US government is carrying out the gutting of Microsoft for every last email and personal information it can get it’s itty bitty corrupt hands on…..period!

    It has but one speed bump left and that is the internet with folks like Jon and many others waking folks up to the truth. I am a thermal dynamics engineer and was given a task to do for the Lord, and others on December 25 2012. In a supernatural set of events that a handful of others witnessed I was asked to observe the internet and report on any ” anomalies ” I found. My work is still on going.

    I was reporting to customers out of my business that the government was hacking their computers for metadata over 4 years ago. I do extensive virus and malware cleanup on all sorts of computers and I was just doing my job when I reported this hack. I had 2 local hard drives destroyed and was threatened in other ways when I figured out how to fix their hack job and implemented it. At that time I started telling everyone that would listen that ” the internet is the last free frontier and when it is under government control we have lost the battle of freedom in the US”!

    This is so typical of the US government to distract folks from the reality of what is really going on with attacking Microsoft in order to get email from Ireland. Microsoft had fought this last year and on Dec. 8, 2014 Microsoft took its appeal up the ladder to the U.S. Second Circuit Court, where the case stands for now. It could eventually end up in the U.S. Supreme Court. If the US government wins this it will set a president and no bodies email in any country will be safe.

    The internet is the closest thing to free speech we have left in the world and without it the whole awakening of people to government lies and takeover would never have got to anyone and think of where the world would be now! Don’t think for one moment that the complete control of the internet isn’t at the top of their ” to do ” list.

    Blessings and Light of knowledge…..mike

    “The NDC said its 1.2m-member army was ready to use all types of warfare against the US. “Our toughest counteraction will be boldly taken against the White House, the Pentagon, and the whole US mainland, the cesspool of terrorism, by far surpassing the ‘symmetric counteraction’ declared by Obama,” said the NDC statement, carried by official news agency KCNA.”

    Jon. Here’s something you left out: George Clooney’s wife, Amal, Alamuddin, turned down the most important work of her life because of her celebrity position in Hollywood. Shame on both of them.

    And here’s what she turned down:
