Conspiracy Cafe

Conspiracy, alternative news, history, intelligence agencies


This is a special film that is hard to find in full. We found a copy on an unconventional media player. Click the link and ENJOY! In light of the events on the horizon this is quite the film. Note how they tap the Fed and the FAA. They specifically say crash the planes. Was it Promis software? Robert Redford has been at the cutting edge in the spy thriller genre. River Phoenix may have been murdered by the dark side for his efforts.

Sneakers is a 1992 caper film directed by Phil Alden Robinson, written by Robinson, Walter F. Parkes, and Lawrence Lasker and starring Robert Redford, Dan Aykroyd, Ben Kingsley, Mary McDonnell, River Phoenix, Sidney Poitier and David Strathairn. It was filmed in late 1991 and released in 1992.

In 1969, students Martin Brice and Cosmo are sneakers who hack into computer networks using university equipment, to redistribute conservative funds to various liberal causes. The police burst in and arrest Cosmo while Martin is out getting pizza, and Martin goes on the run.

In the present day, Martin, now called Martin Bishop, is running a tiger team of security specialists in San Francisco, including Donald Crease, a former CIA officer and family man; Darren "Mother" Roskow, a conspiracy theorist and electronics technician; Carl Arbogast, a young genius; and Irwin "Whistler" Emery, a blind phone phreak.

Martin is approached by two National Security Agency officers, Dick Gordon and Buddy Wallace, who know of his former identity. In exchange for clearing his record, he's asked to recover a "black box" from mathematician Dr. Gunter Janek, who has developed the box under the project name "Setec Astronomy" supposedly for the Russian government. Martin is hesitant but agrees to help. With help from his former girlfriend, Liz, Martin and his team secure the box which is disguised as a telephone answering machine. During their ensuing celebration party, Whistler, Mother, and Carl start to investigate the box, finding it capable of breaking the encryption of nearly every computer system. Martin works out that "Setec Astronomy" is an anagram of "too many secrets", and issues a lockdown until they can turn the box over the next day.

Martin hands the box to the NSA officers, but quickly leaves after discovering that Janek was killed the night before. He contacts a friend named Gregor in the Russian consulate, who confirms that the officers were rogue agents, and that Janek was working for the NSA. Before Gregor can elaborate further, fake FBI agents kill him and kidnap Martin to a remote location where he's reunited with Cosmo, who Martin thought had died in prison. While in prison, Cosmo developed ties with organized crime, allowing him to escape and become wealthy. He explains his plan to use Janek's box to destabilize the world economy creating anarchy, and offers Martin the chance to join him. Martin refuses, whereupon Cosmo uses the box to break into the FBI's records and connect Martin's current identity with his former Brice name. Cosmo has Martin knocked out and taken back to the city.

Martin contacts his team and they relocate to Liz's apartment. They contact NSA agent Abbott, who wants the box but cannot offer assistance without it being in Martin's possession. Whistler uses Martin's recollection of sounds heard during his kidnapping to identify the geographic area where he was taken. They go there and find a toy company operating as a front for Cosmo's operation. They track down Werner Brandes, the employee whose office appears to be next to Cosmo's. They set Liz up with a fake computer date with Brandes to get his keycard and vocal recognition codes, while the others identify other security features of Cosmo's office. The team successfully get into the building to recover the box.

(Play with the numbers. The scrabble numbers on many and secrets are 9. Take the word TOO as two. You get a 9/11. Nothing hides from the twilight language. It was revealing the future.)

However, Brandes has come to suspect Liz during the date, and alerts Cosmo to the possible break in. Cosmo locks down the facility, and holds Martin at gunpoint. Again he tries to convince Martin to join him, but Martin refuses and instead turns over the box. The team escapes before Cosmo realizes that Martin had given him an empty duplicate of the box's case.

Back at their offices, Martin's team is surrounded by NSA agents led by Abbott. After Martin points out how important the secrecy of the box is to the NSA, who could use it to spy on other agencies, Abbott agrees to clear Martin's record and grant the requests of the rest of his team. After Abbott and the agents leave with the box, Martin shows his team he has rendered the box useless by taking out the main processor.

In a postscript, a news report describes the electronic theft of the budget of the Republican National Committee, driving it to bankruptcy, and the simultaneous receipt of massive anonymous donations by Amnesty International, Greenpeace and the United Negro College Fund.

If you have a high IQ, you'll have noticed things in the film. When a room was entered in the film, they did a closeup of the room number 317. Get the picture. 1 + 8 is nine. 3 + 1 + 7 is eleven - crash the planes.
