Anti-9/11-truth propaganda film “Sully” was produced by Steven Mnuchin

1-sullyBy Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor

I just saw Sully, a feel-good 9/11/2016 release about a bird-strike-crippled passenger jet plunging into New York City but not crashing into any buildings.

Unlike all of Hollywood’s films about 9/11 and the phony “war on terror,” Sully is based on a true story, not a big lie.

And for what it’s worth, the Executive Producer of Sully happens to be Steven Mnuchin, the Jewish Zionist billionaire ex-Goldman Sachs executive recently tapped by Donald Trump as Treasury Secretary.

To understand how Sully functions as a sophisticated anti-9/11-truth propaganda film, we need to remember the massive trauma inflicted by the 2001 false flag attack on America. In her book Paranoia Switch, psychologist Martha Stout cites evidence showing that nearly half of the American people suffered from clinical PTSD due to images they saw on television that day. The trauma was even greater for New York City residents, whose everyday world, including the skyline, was shockingly-awesomely altered.

Sully, like V for Vendetta but in a very different key, is a cinematic fantasy attempt to work out the trauma inflicted by 9/11. But whereas the red-pill masterpiece V for Vendetta goes straight to the source of the pain (the false flag attack that inaugurated a new world of fascism), blue-pill-dispensing Sully  re-enacts the 9/11 tragedy but appends a happy ending, in a clumsy attempt to bury the hideously painful truth beneath layer upon layer of pleasant lie.

In Sully‘s dream-disguised re-enactment of 9/11, we watch endless loops of passenger plane plunges into New York, yet nobody dies. Talk about wish fulfillment fantasies! The authorities, especially the Tom Hanks pilot character who symbolizes the parental Authority Figure archetype in the film, are competent, benevolent, even downright heroic in their devoted efforts to protect ordinary Americans. (Quite unlike the real circa-2001 President, Vice President, Joint Chiefs, Intelligence Chiefs, and Oligarchs who deliberately connived in the murder of almost 3,000 of the ordinary men and women they had sworn to protect, as well as the shredding and torching of the Constitution they had sworn to defend.)

The viewer of Sully is asked to imagine that the “Miracle on the Hudson” magically healed our collective 9/11 trauma. As a rescuer puts it: “This time nobody dies.” We are all supposed to leave the theater feeling good about our biggest city, our leaders, and our country. Our nightmares about planes crashing into buildings – horrific images of airliners slamming into skyscrapers and erupting into fireballs, depicted in the film as the pilot Sully’s nightmares of what might have happened to Flight 1549 – are now over. The plane has landed safely. It’s a miracle. Now we can all go home safe and happy, our trust in our devoted fearless leaders renewed and strengthened.

But Sully goes even further. It’s moral is: “Do NOT second guess our fearless leaders. They did the best they could. They did the right thing. They did their jobs.” (On 9/11, of course, many of them deliberately did NOT do their jobs protecting us, having been ordered to stand down, while others, the “asteroids” or professional killers, actually did do their jobs, namely killing us.)

To hammer home this lesson, the filmmakers invented a totally fictitious, borderline-libelous angle to the Miracle-on-the-Hudson story. In the movie version, unlike in real life, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) brutally persecutes the pilot Sully, falsely claiming that he could have easily flown the plane back to LaGuardia rather than risking his passengers’ lives by ditching it in the Hudson. Yet the alleged persecution, all sources agree, never happened. The whole film is structured around this preposterous distortion of reality. Why?

Stephen Cass offers a good headline, but a false explanation, in his Guardian article “Sullied: with Sully, Clint Eastwood is weaponizing a hero.” Cass claims the film is a “rightwing attempt to delegitimize government – and in the process undermine the safety of millions who travel by air, train, road and boat.” In other words, Eastwood and his posse, and their boss Mnuchin, are Republicans who hate the government, so they have invented the ridiculous fable of the NTSB persecuting Sully in an attempt to convince viewers to also hate the government.

But that explanation just doesn’t fly (no pun intended). Sully is depicted as a heroic ex-military pilot. Last I checked, the military was part of the government. And Sully portrays a whole legion of government workers – police, cops, firefighters, the Coast Guard, and so on – as heroes. This film is no anti-government screed. Quite the opposite.

So why is the NTSB slandered in Sully? Because they are portrayed as geeky skeptics – computer re-enactors, sticklers for the laws of physics, party-poopers willing to puncture the feel-good “public myth” with the sharpened dagger of truth. In other words, they are the 9/11 truthers…the people who know that 110 story skyscrapers, and even 47-story ones, cannot disappear through the path of most resistance at free-fall acceleration due to kerosene-kindled office fires.

In essence, the film tells us: “Here is a wonderful story about a heroic pilot, Sully, an authority figure to whom his passengers justifiably entrusted their confidence and their lives, and who repaid that confidence in spades by his heroic emergency landing in the Hudson River…a touching, moving story that banished the trauma of 9/11 from our national psyche. Yet a bunch of geeky skeptics refused to believe this story! Relying on scientific data, they said it couldn’t have happened that way! They want us to feel really, really BAD about ourselves and our wonderful (neocon-Republican) leadership, as embodied by Sully and his trusty co-pilot. Boo, skeptics! Watch as Sully gives them their come-uppance!”

It’s no surprise to find director Clint Eastwood dispensing this kind of neocon-Republican propaganda. But who’s paying him? Presumably that would be the Executive Producer, Steven Mnuchin, our new Treasury Secretary.

And who is Mnuchin? Well, he used to work for George Soros. And that’s his good side.

The Truthseeker website points out:

Trump’s campaign team has been staffed to the brim with hawkish Zionists, chief among them his son-in-law Jared Kushner, a close advisor during the campaign and architect of Trump’s fierce allegiance to the child-murdering Likud maniacs in Israel. But there are many others, listed prominently in an article on The Times of Israel website titled Meet the Jews in Donald Trump’s inner circle: A look at the president-elect’s advisers and their possible roles in his incoming administration. The article names Jason Greenblatt, David Friedman, daughter and son-in-law duo Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, Boris Epshteyn, Stephen Miller, Steven Mnuchin, Lewis Eisenberg (former head of NY Port Authority), and Michael Glassner – all dedicated Israel-first Zionists, the last two actually having helped secure the privatization and sale of the World Trade Centre to Larry Silverstein in 2001.

Israel’s best newspaper Haaretz reports:

Donald Trump taps Steven Mnuchin for Treasury Secretary

Police looking into ties between Australian billionaire James Packer and Netanyahu’s family

Luxury hotels and concert tickets: The links between Australian billionaire James Packer and Netanyahu’s family

Donald Trump’s choice for Treasury secretary, billionaire Steven Mnuchin, has at some point been part of nearly every elitist institution that Trump’s voters railed against in the 2016 election campaign. This first Jewish member of the president-elect’s cabinet is also the business partner of a close friend and confidant of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Australian billionaire James Packer…In 2013, Mnuchin merged his company Dune Entertainment with RatPac Entertainment (the producer of Sully) co-owned by Packer…(.Menuhin) belonged to the secret society Skull and Bones, whose members include former presidents as well as current Secretary of State John Kerry…After leaving Goldman Sachs, Mnuchin worked at hedge funds including that of George Soros…

 

Trump’s Mnuchin appointment  is just one more sign that The Don’s Administration will be dominated by the ultra-Zionist 9/11 suspects clustered around Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu. So if you think it’s just a coincidence that “moneybags Mnuchin”* is paying Clint Eastwood and Tom Hanks to dispense anti-truth-movement propaganda in a Hollywood blockbuster, you’re probably just a crazy coincidence theorist.

 

*Related to famous violinist Yehudi Menuhin (same name, different spelling) and his World War II revisionist son Gerard, whom I interviewed on Truth Jihad Radio. Small world!

    Kevin, there may be another explanation as to why the NTSB and FAA were raked over the coals on this one, and that is from a pilots perspective. Clint is a (helicopter) pilot. He has been in and around pilots for a long time, and he has certainly caught an earful from fellow pilots about the disgraceful actions of these two agencies over the decades.

    The veteran pilot who wrote “Jonathan Livingston Seagull” (amongst others) had nothing good to say about the FAA. He said there is no way of knowing how many good pilots and passengers have died because, during an emergency, the pilot took into account the actions the FAA would take later, and made the wrong decision. He even went on to give examples.

    Clint may have used the opportunity to make a feel good movie and get in a dig at these agencies at the same time.

    This is going to sound horrible, but the honest truth is that, as a Californian, I was largely unmoved by the events of 9/11. I’ve never to the USA east of the Mississippi, never seen NYC, and don’t really care what happens there. To me, it was just more crazy stuff happening on the East Coast.

    As a Californian, I view the Northeast and its seat of power as the source of everything that’s wrong with the USA, and the home of those powers which have ****ed-over the West with greedy abandon ever since 1847.

    Again, I know it sounds horrible, but that’s the naked truth. I was not traumatised at all by 9/11, simply because I didn’t really give a damn.

      That’s how most of the rest of the world felt – the same way Americans feel about similar tragedies in other parts of the world (most of which are paid for with US tax dollars).

    “In her book Paranoia Switch, psychologist Martha Stout cites evidence showing that nearly half of the American people suffered from clinical PTSD due to images they saw on television that day.”

    Score a goal for the MSM and its Zionist lackey actors in the news room. I never accepted that American debt slaves believed they were untouchable or somehow immune to catastrophic events given natures ability ruin any good neighborhood. Sympathetic yes, PTSD, no. This said, the emotional instability these telecasts produced were a hypothetical outcome and not a reality. The entire ongoing propaganda has the same effect a Canadian feel if the Delaware river caught on fire from pollution. The media likes to sell itself as a wonder of the world as if it were handed down by Moses on a mountain. Some buy into it, the emotionally challenged and those working the system.

    I think every single flight I have ever been on in over 50 years has had a piece of printed cardboard in the seat pocket showing what to do if they happen to land on water. Am I alone in having noticed the “safety instructions” and the life vest? Apparently modern passenger planes are designed to land in the water, at which point the passengers, in their life vests, are to use the slides as life rafts.

    I am struggling to understand why a festure length movie would have to be made of this and why “Sully” is viewed as a hero.

    Very small~ you are always spot on in these matters as you have personally been under their assault . I suspect your instincts gave you the foreshadowing about the moral of this flight of fancy as did mine ,Doc.

  6. potai  December 9, 2016 at 5:07 am

    Nice job on article. I see that a few ‘no substance’ yokels are trying their best to rise up and walk. That’s quite a verification that your article is worthwhile.

    Regarding davor’s taking Hollywood stars to task for not revealing more about 9/11, yes, it’s a shame they aren’t braver artists. I’m an actor in Los Angeles myself, and though not a successful one, I know a little about how this insulated industry works. Certain topics are off-limits, and the truth of 9/11, like the truth of the holocaust are at the top of the list. Ten years ago Mel Gibson was one of the top three box office stars in the world, then got drunk and told some truths, as well as exaggerations, about the Jews. He almost lost his career. Oliver Stone, George Carlin, Sean Penn, Warren Beatty, all have courageously attacked sacred cows, but not 9/11 or the excesses of Israel. It would be self-immolation.

    Besides, all the names mentioned above, except for DeNiro, are conservatives who wouldn’t dream of stirring the 9/11 pot. No, as long as Hollywood is financially dominated by Jewish neocon producers, it will remain what it’s always been–a mouthpiece for government propaganda 98% of the time.

    Very good article. Sully is a masterful piece of propaganda. The message is that there is a system and it works — There are competent people in charge doing their best to safeguard everyone’s life. And thus anyone who thinks that all these devoted and decent professionals colluded on 9/11 is spreading fake news.

  9. frog  December 9, 2016 at 12:36 am

    Let us remind ourselves why the NTSB didn’t investigate the 4 crashes on 911.” because we all saw what happened that day.”

    But we didn’t see what hit the Pentagon, and crashed at Shanksville.

    Corruption is even in my old country, NZ . Back in 1980 the Govt of the day and the Chief Inspector of air accidents, tried to blame the pilot in the Erebus Antarctica crash in 1979, killing 279. The full story available on line, Erebus the aftermath, part one.

    err, is there any substance in your brain ?

  11. George Bowling  December 9, 2016 at 12:29 am

    Agreed marcelt… it’s sorta saying… nothing. We can presumedly, think for ourselves… at least for now!!

    When you consider that some actors are great for what they do and that they are in touch with their emotions more than any average person, or are also able to discern (given the nature of their job and complexity of their scripts) between false and true emotions expressed by their fellow actors (upon which they base their casting and auditioning) and extras then it is really sad for the entire acting (and directing) community that they never really tried to research more on the real 9-11. James Woods, Robert De Niro, Tom Hanks, Clint Eastwood, Steven Spielberg and other movie heavyweights could have tried to decode the false 9-11 narrative so far but they opted not to maybe threatened with careers but if in numbers they would have been unstoppable. It is impossible that they don’t understand who did 9-11 and for what reasons (again given the nature of their work) but they remain silent for most of their creative work, sometimes only showing glimpses of truth but a very ancient one (like Spielberg tried with Munich, or Eastwood with Letters from Iwo Jima or De Niro with Good shepherd). US history might regard them high but world history will know that most of them kept silent or joined with the false when it was needed the most to speak up.
