Hollywood celebrities caught on hidden camera accepting money from "Middle Eastern oil interests"



Project Veritas has exposed the truth about the dark funding behind Hollywood's anti-fracking messaging machine.

In the investigation, an undercover journalist from Project Veritas posed as a member of a Middle Eastern oil dynasty and offered $9 million in funding to American filmmakers to fund an anti-fracking movie.

In video from a meeting with Ed Begley Jr., Mariel Hemingway and Josh Tickell, a Project Veritas investigator disguised as "Muhammed" offered $9 million for an anti-fracking film. "Muhammad" clearly states: "If Washington DC continues fracking, America will be energy efficient, and then they won't need my oil anymore."

In the same conversation, Begley and Hemingway accept the funding and agree to hide the source of funds for the anti-fracking movie. Hemingway agreeing that those who will know the source of the funding are "only at this table."

Ed Begley Jr. is an outspoken environmental activist and current Governor on the board of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science (the organization that brings us the OSCARS every year.)

Mariel Hemingway is a Golden Globe- and Oscar-nominated actress.

Josh Tickell is a Sundance Film Festival Winner and the director of environmental message movies "Fuel", "The Big Fix" and "PUMP".

Team Begley even submitted a video of Oscar-nominated actor Mark Ruffalo offering his unwavering support for the fictitious anti-fracking film project.

The meeting came about after a series of discussions with Josh and Rebecca Tickell. A Project Veritas journalist posed as an ad executive seeking to broker a deal for his client ("Muhammed") to fund an American-made anti-fracking film.

Fracking has been done since the 1980s and was never a problem in so-called conventional reservoirs. Now with shale plays, that can be shallower, it might be a risk for shallow aquifers. But that is studied very well too.

The anti-fracking film GasLand (2010 if I recall well) was already a faked propaganda movie.

The narrative "the US fracks the Middle East out of business" is of course ridiculous. The Bakken shale in NW US is pretty rich and successful, but the enormous consumption of the USA is much too high to rely on only that. The other shale plays are predominantly gas, not oil.

The US imports a lot from Venezuela, which makes their act of "anti-US attitude" a farce too.

60% of America's imported oil comes from Canada .. mostly alberta.
Fracking has been a huge problem in some areas of the province.

Yes, that is what that """docu""" GasLand shows. But that had nothing to do with fracking, yet because a conventional well wasn't well cemented. Blaming fracking is bullshit and the staged docu makers know that very well.

Because the shale is shattered, the gas seeps into groundwater.

quotes from the undercover filming:

Ed Begley, Jr Oscar Board of Directors:

Washington and Hollywood are a lot alike; illusions, special effects, smoke and mirrors (others at the table agree)

Muhammad (in response):

As long as it looks good to the eye it doesn't matter

Ed Begley, Jr:

Exactly, Hollywood and Washington are very similar that way.

'Ad Executive' Brandon Turner:

"My clients interests are to end American energy independence, your interest is to end fracking... And you guys understand that?

Josh Tickell (Sundance Film Festival Award winning Director and Producer) in response:

"Correct. Yes, super clear.

We're confident that we can keep this zip locked, you know, tight, tight, air tight, forever."

'Ad Executive' Brandon Turner:

"We have some clients in the Middle East........ who are very anti-fracking, very anti-American oil interests, but it's because it cuts into their bottom line.

You know, they don't want the Keystone Pipeline to be built. But, you know, guess who else, the environmentalists, you know.

So it's one of those things where the enemy of the enemy is my friend and we hang out."

Josh Tickell (in response):

"That's awesome. I can't disagree with that."

Josh Tickell:

"If you look at 'Gasland', 'Gasland' was really made for TV. It's a Handycam kind of movie. It feels like a youtube video. 'Promised Land' was trying so hard to not be a message film because it had Imagine (Image Nation) Abu Dhabi stamped on the front of the film and everybody's like, okay we know why you paid for it, you know. It tried so hard to counteract that, that it had no message."

'Ad Executive' Brandon Turner:

"Yeah, interesting"

Josh Tickell:

"So, rather than putting that up front (don't), mention that."

Brandon Turner:

"Yeah, oh yeah, don't broadcast it, it just between.. (laughter)"

Josh Tickell:

(nods in agreement)

"And then you can make a gutsy, ballsy, powerful film that Hollywood will respect for actually saying something. Then they get behind it."

Asked if environmental partners would be willing to be paid off..

Rebecca Tickell:

" Environment California and Code Blue"

Brandon Turner:

"Would that be something that.. like they accept donations and things like that?"

Rebecca Tickell:

"Absolutely"

Josh Tickell:

"Yeah, they want the money."

Rebecca Tickell:

"They would work with us on this film."

Rebecca Tickell:

"We would never tell where the funding is coming from, that would be really awkward for us."

Josh Tickell:

"Maybe one member of our team at most, who is sworn to death and secrecy...."

Josh Tickell:

"Well, we're super excited first of all."

Rebecca Tickell:

"Which is why we've gotten Ana Getty on board and people like that -"

Josh Trickell:

"And we've been down this road before, so we know how tricky it is."

Rebecca Trickell:

"And we are okay with that."

Josh Trickell:

"Money to us.... It's money..... we have no moral issue...... but we know how a lot of people that would be necessary to pull this off.....they would have issue."

Josh Tickell:

"This is not the first major project that we've had funded through a funding source which you know, for various reasons - "

Rebecca Tickell:

"We didn't disclose."

Josh Tickell:

"So we're aware of the reality of like, money to us, doesn't have a specific kind of moral vibration, it's money, so in that sense we have no moral issue."

'Ad Executive' Brandon Turner:

"My clients interests are to end American energy independence, your interest is to end fracking... And you guys understand that?

Josh Tickell (Sundance Film Festival Award winning Director and Producer) in response:

Correct. Yes, super clear.

Man if my tapwater was combustible I'd be happier than was Jed Clampett when he struck that 'black gold - Texas Tea'.
