Too-stupid-to-understand-FISA-memo Americans inundate Rep. Adam Schiff & Sen. Feinstein with 'I'm not a Russian bot' phone calls

Update: Full FISA Memo released!!!
Our elected politicians just don’t get it: They are not our overlords — they work for us.
Remember Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), 57, who said the House Intelligence Committee (on which he is a ranking member) should not release the FISA memo to the public because the American people simply can’t understand it?
Adam Schiff
The now-infamous 4-page FISA memo is described as so “shocking” and “explosive”, it could lead to the removal of senior officials in the NSA, FBI and DOJ, the end of Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation, and even people going to jail.

See “Tell Congress to release the ‘explosive’ FISA memo that’ll put officials in jail!

But Schiff dismisses the FISA memo as a set of “distorted” “talking points” drafted by Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee. He also invoked the Democrats’ favorite boogeyman — the Russians — accusing his Republican colleagues on the committee of colluding with “Russian trolls and bots”.
When news went viral — of the FISA memo and Schiff’s characterization of the American people as too stupid to understand it — there was a popular outcry to #ReleaseTheMemo.
Still thinking the American people to be stupid, Democrats dug in with their Russian boogeyman meme, accusing the #ReleaseTheMemo social-media campaign of being Kremlin-orchestrated social media actors or LARPers pretending to be Americans.
On Tuesday, January 23, Schiff and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) actually sent a letter (see below) to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, demanding a forensic examination into the #ReleaseTheMemo campaign being the work of “Russian bots” or fake Americans.
Schiff-Feinstein letter on Russian bots
News of the Schiff-Feinstein letter unleashed a tsunami of phone calls to their respective offices, from American citizens confirming they are not Russian bots. One Twitter user said Schiff’s office is now hanging up on American citizens calling to say they’re not Russian bots. LOL
Here’s a sample of tweets from Americans who called:

“Adam Schiff’s office is now hanging up on citizens calling to say they are not Russian Bots.”
” I called Schiff’s office and actually got a live person, he wasn’t too happy with my message and hung up???
“A very rude young man in Adam Schiff’s office just hung up on me. After he talked over me and wouldn’t even let me finish a sentence.”
“Schiff’s office not accepting voicemail. I’m an EXDemocrat – NOT a BOT!”
“My husband just got through to Schiff’s office. Told them ‘Censorship is Communism!’ That he was an American Citizen and didn’t eat Borscht and drink Vodka! We the People Want the Memo! Schiff is a Mental case and should resign!”

Call Schiff and Feinstein and tell them you’re not a Russian bot!

  • Adam Schiff: (202) 225-4176
  • Diane Feinstein: (415) 393-0707

By the way, Rep. Schiff said we won’t be able to understand the FISA memo because we don’t have the memo’s classified background information. But we do have that information — the 99-page United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court Memorandum Opinion and Order, dated April 26, 2017, which is a blueprint of how the Obama administration and the Deep State illegally spied on President Trump, as well as on U.S. citizens.

Congress must ban all assault window-cleaners!

Calling on Sen. Diane Feinstein and the Democrats in the state legislatures of California, New York, Missouri, Minnesota, Colorado, Washington!!!
We need a ban on all assault window-cleaning fluids!
A senior citizen in Florida – GASP! — used a bottle of ASSAULT window cleaner to subdue a home invader.

Weapon: Grabbing a bottle of blue window cleaner Mr Baillargeon said he sprayed the chemical, pictured, in the burglar's eyes and blocked his swing of a crowbar

Nina Golgowski reports for the Daily Mail, March 1, 2013, that when an intruder armed with a gun and crowbar appeared in his Southern Florida home on Tuesday morning, 66-year-old Jacques Baillargeon grabbed the first thing he could find — a bottle of ASSAULT window cleaner — which he sprayed into the intruder’s eyes. (See pic above)
Often containing ammonia, alcohol and sometimes vinegar, ASSAULT window-cleaning fluids can cause a burning sensation when touching the eyes.
“I said, ‘No way this guy is going to touch my wife’…I will try not to panic and I will try to knock him down,” Baillargeon recounted from his Lauderdale Lakes condominium to WSVN.
The intruder swung his crowbar at Baillargeon who was able to avoid the blow and instead swipe the weapon out of his hand. Baillargeon is a 28-year veteran of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
The intruder never fired his weapon but instead quickly fled the scene, leaving behind the crowbar as well as a skull cap.
Baillargeon promptly called 911. The dispatcher reacted in disbelief: “You sprayed him with (ASSAULT) window cleaner?”
Only moments later the Broward police department were on the line with another call reporting a home robbery in the same area.
“Did you see anybody, can you tell me what they looked like?” police dispatch asked.
The caller, 29-year-old Nathanel Smith (photo below), said, “No ma’am, He had on a black, he had on all black with a bandana over his mouth.” But a crowbar and a skull cap were among the items stolen.

Invasion: Jacques Baillargeon, a 66-year-old veteran of the Royal Canadian Mountain Police, said that when Nathanel Smith, 29, right, appeared armed in his home he immediately grabbed an item to attackIf Obama had a son, would he look just like Nathanel Smith?

It turns out that Smith is Baillargeon’s home invader! Smith falsely reported that a robber had taken his crowbar and skull cap, which he had left in Baillargeon’s home, in hope of explaining why Smith’s fingerprints and potential DNA were on them.
Smith was detained by detectives after pulling a bag of marijuana out in front of them from his pants’ pocket. Police say he later confessed to trying to rob Baillargeon as well as another couple a few days earlier.
The 61-year-old couple had left their door open to enjoy the cool air from outside. “A black male armed with a handgun and crowbar entered their apartment and ordered the couple to lie face-down on the bed,” the Broward sheriff’s department said in a press release. “The gunman rummaged through the apartment stealing jewelry, cash, cell phones and a laptop computer. The couple was not injured and the suspect fled.”
Here’s Nathanel Smith being arraigned before the court:

Serial robber: Police say Smith, seen in court, has admitted to the robbery as well as a second to a 61-year-old couple only two days earlier

PA police chief invites citizens to join 2nd Amendment Reserve Force

Faced with the prospect of four more years of the POS in the White House, some conservatives and libertarians are beginning to fray, making crazy talk about an armed overthrow of the U.S. government.
Any blogger so irresponsible as to advocate that, should know that what you are proposing is TREASON.
United States Code at 18 U.S.C. § 2381 states “whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000.”
Such talk only plays into the hands of the Obama regime.
Already, the DHS labels conservatives, Christians, pro-lifers, gun-righters, and freedom-lovers as potential terrorists. Already, the U.S. Army has a civil war scenario instigated by the peaceful Tea Party movement. Already, Obama’s DOJ has a secret “White Paper” memo “authorizing” the extra-judicial killing of U.S. citizens deemed to be “senior-level terrorists.”
Irresponsible reckless advocacy of an armed insurrection will only give the POS the excuse to shut down your blog and install martial law.
My other objection to the crazy talk is this — There is so much Americans who love the Constitution can do, which we are not doing:

Did you know that hundreds of county sheriffs across America are saying a resounding “No” to the Obama regime’s gun “control” agenda?
“My friends, there is hope.”
That’s the first sentence of Tim Brown’s article of Feb. 13, 2013, for the blog Freedom Outpost.
Indeed, there is hope.
A police chief of Gilberton Borough, Pennsylvania, Mark Kessler, is inviting citizens to join with his police department in building a “reserve force” that will aid his police force should the need arise to resist Federal authorities intent on taking away our Second Amendment rights.

Mark KesslerPolice Chief Mark Kessler

Gilberton is a borough in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania, four miles west by south of Mahanoy City.

From Police Chief Kessler’s website:

ALERT! Anyone interested in joining a reserve force with the Gilberton Borough Police Department ,contact Chief Kessler immediately for details! Due to our Country’s current situation I’m compelled to form an auxiliary force, DHS ( Department of Home Land Security ) is stock piling ammunition , Stock Piling Machine guns at a alarming rate! I believe we have no choice for what MAY OR MAY NOT happen shortly!, Ask yourself this one question, can you walk into any sporting good store and purchase 22LR, 9mm, 45ACP , 40 caliber,, 5.56/223 , 7.62×51 or 308 ammunition in quantity’s more then a box or two ? (OR ANY AT ALL) if you answer No, ask yourself why ???? I’ll tell you why because the GOVERNMENT is STOCKPILING BILLIONS of rounds of ammunition! (for what ????) even the police can’t get ammo ! DHS has enough weapons and ammo to wage a 30 year GROUND war, (BUT ON WHO and WHY) what is wrong with this picture???, Maybe the tyrants want to take as much ammo off the civilian market AS POSSIBLE! either way it’s very disturbing!

The reserve force will be made up of volunteers, they can be past or current police officers with act 120 training, along with non law enforcement personnel interested in joining the reserve force. All non law enforcement personnel won’t have any powers to arrest, but will be required to go through a background check, supply their own duty gear, uniform (military BDU, etc), weapons, ammunition. Everyone will be required to attend a firearms certification course to qualify with both long gun and hand gun at a rate set by the firearm instructor. There will also be hand to hand combat training, knife fighting training, urban combat training, sniper courses, search and rescue etc. The reserve force would only be called upon in the event of a Federal invasion or foreign invasion of the jurisdiction. They would not be called on in ordinary police work nor would they have arrest powers. This reserve force would be distinct from militia, according to Kessler.
In addition to assembling a citizens’ Reserve Force, Chief Kessler has also drafted a piece of legislation called The 2nd Amendment Preservation Resolution, reaffirming the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution which reads:

A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

Along with the Pennsylvania Constitution, which states:

The right of the people to keep and bear arms in defense of themselves or that of a free state shall not be questioned.

“I wanted to draw my line in the sand,” Kessler writes. “I wanted to ask my elected officials to stand with freedom, stand with the oath they took to defend freedom, to stand with so many great Americans that shed their blood or gave the ultimate sacrifice defending.”
His resolution was adopted on January 24, 2013 by the Gilberton Borough Council.
If you wish to be a part of Kessler’s Reserve Force, or if you are not in the area and wish to donate to the Gilberton Borough Police Department, here’s his contact info:

TSA agents told to "save yourself" in airport checkpoint shooting

TSA lines
Alan Jones of The Washington Times reports that a whistleblower in the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) warns that TSA checkpoint screeners are receiving training to prepare them for the possibility of a mass shooting at some airport checkpoint, and that the screeners are instructed to “save themselves” should a shooting occur.
Since TSA agents are unarmed, we don’t know what “saving themselves” would actually mean.
The unnamed whistleblower is a TSA screener who claims to have recently undergone such training, during which TSA personnel were confronted with a chilling checkpoint shooting scenario. The whistleblower is now fearful for his life. Along with the lives of other unarmed TSA personnel, his life would be in grave danger were an airport checkpoint shooting to unfold. He said: “Every day when I arrive for work, I look for an escape route in case someone opens fire. We have been told to save ourselves.”
TSA is an agency within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). In addition to the 1.6 billion bullets, mostly jacketed hollow points, which the DHS had purchased, Examiner.com reports, Jan. 28, 2013, that DHS just put in a bid to purchase 7,000 assault weapons — select fire or automatic AR-15 rifles.
Like Congress and other government officials and agencies, DHS is exempted from Sen. Feinstein’s “assault weapons” ban bill.
In his Washington Times article, Jones also makes mention of something I had not known: The “underwear bomber” incident on Christmas Day 2009 may have been a “false flag” event by the Obama regime’s Homeland Security.
There are eyewitness reports, including one by Michigan attorney Kurt Haskell, a 2012 Democratic Congressional candidate who lost to incumbent Tim Walberg (R-MI), that DHS knew that “underwear bomber” Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a Nigerian, was a threat to air safety. Despite that, Abdulmutallab was seen being assisted by “a well-dressed man” who helped the Nigerian terrorist board Northwest Airlines flight 253 without a passport.
Read the rest of Jones’ Washington Times article here.
I don’t know what this reported TSA training means: Is DHS sounding a warning to its TSA agents, knowing that there will be a “false flag” mass shooting incident at some airport? Or is the DHS merely being precautionary?
One thing for sure is that being unarmed, passengers waiting in long lines to go through TSA screening in congested airports are “sitting ducks” if a shooting were to occur.

Project Longevity and the Sandy Hook Massacre

Ever heard of “Project Longevity”?
Sounds like some anti-aging scientific research project on the long-sought magical elixir of life, doesn’t it?
Not so.
Project Longevity is the Orwellian name of a U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) “comprehensive initiative to reduce gun violence” — not in the cities of Chicago, Illinois; Detroit, Michigan; or Oakland, California, which are plagued with “gun violence” and high rates of shooting homicides — but in the state of Connecticut!
With a total population of 3.58 million in 2011, here are Connecticut’s crime rates for murder and violent crimes from 2000 to 2011 (Source):
CT crime rates
Does the table above look like a crime-ridden state to you? In fact, the numbers of homicides (133 to 128) and violent crimes (10,083 to 9,767) actualy went down in 2011 from a year ago!
Now compare the state of Connecticut’s murder rates with those of 7 of America’s largest cities (Source):
murder rates of large cities
As you can see, the city of Chicago, with a population that’s 89,000 fewer than that of the entire state of Connecticut, had 292 homicides (murders) in 2011 — 164 more than Connecticut.
And yet the state of Connecticut is the object of the Obama regime’s DOJ’s Project Longevity.
On November 27, 2012, Attorney General Eric Holder, U.S. Attorney David Fein and Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy joined members of law enforcement, public officials, social service providers, community leaders and researchers in New Haven, CT, to launch “Project Longevity.” The project is funded by federal, state and local sources.
This is what Eric Holder said at the launch:
“Project Longevity will send a powerful message to those who would commit violent crimes targeting their fellow citizens that such acts will not be tolerated and that help is available for all those who wish to break the cycle of violence and gang activity. Today’s announcement underscores our commitment to working together – across levels of government and jurisdictional boundaries – to protect the American people from the crime that threatens too many neighborhoods and claims far too many innocent lives.”
On December 14, 2012, 17 days after Eric Holder’s visit to New Haven to announce the launching of Project Longevity, 20 mostly white* school children and 6 adults were shot to death in a town 34 miles northeast of New Haven. The town is Newtown, CT — a peaceful prosperous town ranked the 5th safest city in America by the website NeighborhoodScout.com based on 2011 crime statistics. (* Ana Marquez-Greene, 6, is part black. Her father is black jazz musician Jimmy Greene.)
The subliminal message impressed on the American people is that if the massacre had happened to a place such as Newtown, then no one is safe from gun violence.
Ron Pinciaro, executive director of Connecticut Against Gun Violence, said in a telephone interview that “we’ve got to do something” and that the change needed was a cultural shift.
The massacre of 20  upper-middle class first-graders at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT, allegedly by a disturbed lone gunman who then killed himself, would be the match that ignited a nationwide call for gun control and for a ban on assault weapons. (See Sen. Feinstein’s “assault weapons” ban bill.)
It remains unclear whether the gunman Adam Lanza actually used an assault rifle to kill the Sandy Hook 26.
H/t FOTM reader Grace.

UPDATE (Oct. 9, 2014):

This post was published 1½ months after the Sandy Hook “massacre”. Since then, there is compelling evidence that the “massacre” was a contrived event. Please go to our “Sandy Hook Massacre” page for all the posts we’ve done on this false flag event, especially “No one died in Sandy Hook: Testimony from Social Security Death Master File.”
In light of this evidence, Project Longevity takes on added and sinister significance.

Letter from a resident of Newtown, CT

The letter below was published on Jan. 10, 2013, in The Newtown Bee, the local paper of Newtown, CT, where the Dec. 14, 2012 Sandy Hook school massacre occurred.
It is also now confirmed — SURPRISE! [snark] — that government officials (including Congress, of course), law enforcement and retired law enforcement personnel are exempted from Sen. Diane Feinstein’s assault weapons gun ban bill, by far the most ambitious of the number of gun-control bills introduced in the wake of the massacre.
H/t my friend Nancy

CNN #2 The school these police officers were running into is not Sandy Hook Elementary School. Aren’t you at all curious why CNN would do that? See “CNN deception: Live aerial footage of police running into Sandy Hook was of another school.

Elected Officials Are Fundamentally Dishonest

To the Editor:
This letter was forwarded to Barack Obama, John Boehner, Chris Murphy, Dick Blumenthal, Elizabeth Esty, and Harry Reid
I live in Sandy Hook, CT. My family and close friends weren’t harmed on December 14. That day impacted 26 families with an indescribable, staggering pain and anguish. For most of Sandy Hook, it merely affected us with an inescapable intensity of sadness and grief.
Gun control has long been a focus of many in this country. Though I’m not knowledgeable of all the nuances of the Second Amendment, based on the Founding Fathers’ circumstances, it had far more to do with enabling the citizenry to protect themselves against tyrannical government than against local psychopaths. It is about providing a balanced firepower so when King George’s successor came knocking on your door, you could fight back. Government today is no less inclined to abuse its authority than it was then. Based on the absurd and ongoing power grab that is present day Washington, it’s as threatening as ever.
That so many of you view the NRA with its resistance to further restrictions on firearms as intransigent lunatics has far more to do with how you conduct yourselves in office than it does with the NRA’s actions.
You in public office are fundamentally dishonest people. You lead lives of deception at every turn, structuring your lives as comfortably as you can while governing with an indifference and arrogance that is absolutely maddening. When the country is reeling from financial disaster, you waste a trillion dollars on a health care bill we can’t afford and you’ve never read. You claim it’s critical because health care costs are killing this country… no they’re not, you are! You are killing this country. You endorse the ongoing slaughter of millions of unborn children and whine when terrorists are water boarded. You can’t lecture us right in Newtown High School about not doing enough to keep our children safe, while simultaneously slaughtering the unborn. You fabricate the intense, media laden drama of the fiscal cliff and lack the courage to do anything about truly reforming the obscene gluttony of government. You know you’ll be out of office before the bill comes due… you don’t care and have no integrity nor honor.
You lie whenever and wherever you need to to move forth your agenda. Were you able, you would purge the US of guns… every last gun in the country, if you could. So please forgive Wayne LaPierre and those of us who don’t trust you as far as we can spit. You’re a dishonest lot, motivated by a distorted worldview. If mass murder prevention were truly your goal, you would welcome armed security wherever needed. It is outrageous that we protect our money with far more firepower than we protect our children.
I have never owned a gun, nor wanted to as intensely as right now. You’ll stop restricting guns when only you have them.

2014 Nevada Governor candidate will defy gun ban

Yesterday, I posted former U.S. Marine Joshua Boston’s open letter to Sen. Diane Feinstein, in which Cpl Boston states he will not register his weapons should her proposed legislation to ban “assault weapons” including handguns is passed
Here’s another voice publicly and boldly stating he will not comply with any gun control ban/confiscation directive. His name is David Lory VanDerBeek, 37, and he’s the Constitution Party’s candidate for Governor of Nevada in 2014. A happily married husband and father of 5 children, VanDerBeek is prepared to go to jail for his belief in the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment. He is asking us to join him.
His video is a bit long, slightly over an hour. I’ve transcribed his main message:
“This video is a message to all Americans, including those of you who are serving in the military and law enforcement.
America is losing all the freedoms that define us as America. The American Dream will come to an end unless we draw the line. Everyone of you will have to make the decision.
Obama is moving to become a dictator. In order to do that, Americans must be disarmed. Our government is preparing legislation to have firearms confiscated, beginning with semi-automatic rifles and military-grade handguns.
I’m asking you as Americans to be public and vocal. I’m asking you to publicly state with me that if anyone in any level of government uses physical force to remove your firearms, that you will defend yourselves.
Why am I standing up to Obama?
Because someone needs to.”
Please go to the video’s YouTube website to leave a comment for Mr. VanDerBeek or send him an email at vanderbeek@ccnviap.org.

U.S. Marine says "No" to Sen. Feinstein's gun ban

Cpl-Joshua-BostonCpl Joshua Boston (photo source)

U.S. Marine Corporal Joshua Boston was deployed to Afghanistan from 2004 through 2005.
This is an open letter Cpl Boston wrote to Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA), telling her outright that he will not comply with her proposed legislation to ban “assault weapons” including handguns. The letter was published on CNN’s iReport on Dec. 27, 2012. The letter has struck a nerve with many and has gone viral.

No Ma'am

No ma’am.

By joshdb50  |  Posted December 27, 2012
Senator Dianne Feinstein,
I will not register my weapons should this bill be passed, as I do not believe it is the government’s right to know what I own. Nor do I think it prudent to tell you what I own so that it may be taken from me by a group of people who enjoy armed protection yet decry me having the same a crime. You ma’am have overstepped a line that is not your domain. I am a Marine Corps Veteran of 8 years, and I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one.
I am not your subject. I am the man who keeps you free. I am not your servant. I am the person whom you serve. I am not your peasant. I am the flesh and blood of America.
I am the man who fought for my country. I am the man who learned. I am an American. You will not tell me that I must register my semi-automatic AR-15 because of the actions of some evil man.
I will not be disarmed to suit the fear that has been established by the media and your misinformation campaign against the American public.
We, the people, deserve better than you.
Respectfully Submitted,
Joshua Boston
Cpl, United States Marine Corps
This is what CNN iReport producer, Jareen, writes about Cpl Joshua Boston:
Although he is no longer in the military he acknowledges that he owns gun. He says he does not believe the government needs to know what guns he owns because he believes registration would lead to confiscation. He says the laws that are in place for gun control are plenty, and adding more laws will remove a means of defense for people. ‘I own the guns I own because I acknowledge mankind’s shortcomings instead of pretending like they don’t exist. There are evil men in this world and there just may be a time when I need to do the unthinkable to protect me or my family,’ he said.

Professional crisis actors simulate mass casualty events

More than two weeks after the Sandy Hook school massacre, skepticism about the official version of what happened — that the killings were the work of a lone gunman, 20-year-old Adam Lanza — persists.
Unrefuted, eye witness reports of suspects being handcuffed by police and police audio of men wearing ski masks and a nun’s habit continue to fuel speculation that Sandy Hook was a “false flag” operation by the Obama regime for the purpose of gun control. Sen. Diane Feinstein’s (D-CA) proposed legislation to ban “assault weapons” including handguns, only adds credibility to the skeptics. Likewise, the spooky coincidences of Sandy Hook and the Aurora, CO massacres.
It is in the context of that skepticism that the odd behavior of Robbie Parker draws attention and raises questions. The father of 6-year-old Sandy Hook victim Emilie, Parker managed to make a split-second transition from laughing and joking to putting on a grim somber face, barely able to speak without breaking down in tears. His peculiar behavior has led radical skeptics to wonder if he, like other parents of Sandy Hook child victims, may actually be hired actors. The skeptics are symptomatic of just how profound Americans’ distrust of and alienation from government has become.
Ever heard of the Crisis Actors?
Located in Denver, Colorado, Crisis Actors describe themselves as “Trained Players and Actors Making it Real” by “Helping schools and first responders create realistic drills, full-scale exercises, high-fidelity simulations, and interactive 3D films.”
Here’s the Feature Story on the Crisis Actors website:

Active Shooter Crisis Actors Target Mall Shootings via Visionbox

DENVER, CO, October 31, 2012 — A new group of actors is now available nationwide for active shooter drills and mall shooting full-scale exercises, announced Visionbox, Denver’s leading professional actors studio.
Visionbox Crisis Actors are trained in criminal and victim behavior, and bring intense realism to simulated mass casualty incidents in public places.
The actors’ stage acting experience, ranging from Shakespeare to contemporary American theater, enables them to “stay in character” throughout an exercise, and improvise scenes of extreme stress while strictly following official exercise scenarios.
The actors regularly rehearse scenarios involving the Incident Command System and crisis communications, and appear in interactive training films produced in both 2D and stereoscopic 3D.
Producers Jennifer McCray Rincon and John Simmons formed the group to demonstrate emerging security technologies, help first responders visualize life-saving procedures, and assist trainers in delivering superior hands-on crisis response training.
For example, with a large shopping center, the producers review all security camera views and design dramatic scenes specifically for existing camera angles, robotic camera sweeps, and manually-controlled camera moves.
The producers then work with the trainers to create a “prompt book” for the actors so that key scenario developments can be triggered throughout the mall shooting simulation, and caught on tape.
The actors can play the part of the shooters, mall employees, shoppers in the mall, shoppers who continue to arrive at the mall, media reporters and others rushing to the mall, and persons in motor vehicles around the mall.
Visionbox Crisis Actors can also play the role of citizens calling 911 or mall management, or posting comments on social media websites.
During the exercise, the producers use two-way radio to co-direct the Crisis Actors team from the mall dispatch center and at actors’ locations.
Within this framework, the exercise can test the mall’s monitoring and communications systems, the mall’s safety plan including lockdown and evacuation procedures, the ability of first responders and the mall to coordinate an effective response, and their joint ability to respond to the media and information posted on the Internet.
Security camera footage is edited for after-action reports and future training.
For more information visit www.Visionbox.org and www.CrisisActors.org.
Visionbox is a project of the Colorado Nonprofit Development Center. Crisis Actors is a project of the Colorado Safety Task Force established by Colorado State Senator Steve King.

In our age of Photoshop and Internet hoaxes, how do we tell the difference between professional crisis actors and the parents of real-life victims?
H/t my friend Mark S. McGrew

UPDATE (Jan. 3, 2013):

Thanks to a tip from FOTM reader “Em,” as of yesterday, the Crisis Actors website is no longer freely accessible. You must now “join” the organization to access the website or sign in with your Google or Yahoo! account.
I tried to join. In addition to my e-mail address and password, I was also asked “Do you have a certificate for any course completed at https://training.fema.gov?” — which suggests Crisis Actors is somehow connected to FEMA.
I answered “No” and kept getting this message “Please correctly answer “Do you have a certificate for any course completed at https://training.fema.gov?”.
Only when I answered “Yes” was I able to continue. My application to join is now “pending approval.”

Update (Jan. 7, 2013):

More evidence that Crisis Actors is strongly connected to two federal government agencies: FEMA and the Dept. of Homeland Security. Many references to both agencies are in a 73-page pdf document that Crisis Actors prepared for one of their courses on how to approach and behave on social media. The document is titled “IS-042 Social Media in Emergency Management: Course Summary and Handouts.”
You can read the document for yourself on the web or, if Crisis Actors takes down the document (which I fully anticipate they will), from Fellowship of the Minds’s library, “IS042_Social_Media”. (A big h/t to FOTM reader Nick!)
