FWIW, my current thoughts on crisis actors as portrayed in various International hoaxes are played by:

Low level intelligence officers/relations looking to further their careers and bank balance.
Ex- Military/Police/Fire personnel & relations supplementing their pensions.
Wannabe actors with connections to the above.
Compromised Businessmen/Politicians/Freemasons.
Paid for Ex-criminals.

It might be helpful, when trying to understand the social engineering function of The Matrix, to change its title to The Internet in your thoughts. Many clues about the purpose of the film are found this way. The timing of the release of the film is also significant: as the decades-long rollout of the underlying nuts-and-bolts technology was nearing completion during the dotcom bubble, and the internet as an integral medium of social interaction (real and simulated) was introduced to society at large.

Of course, the internet of 1999, when the film was released, wasn't nearly the Matrix depicted. Rather, consider that The Matrix reveals, predicts and, above all, promotes the internet in the form which the Powers That Be (who gave us this technology in the first place) plan to eventually implement.

Lately I keep thinking of the agents in the movie being able to infiltrate any person in the Matrix except those who are not plugged in. How at any moment, any person can turn into an agent.

Reminds me of real life a lot.

You're right, Tokyojoe1, I feel the same. Involuntary agents. Much more numerous than voluntary ones.

By the way, what do you think about the IFF Data Solutions website? I'm interested both in your technical and personal opinion.

FWIW, I recall seeing an US based outfit or two, around the time of Sandy Hook that were involved with providing talent for live drills. I can no longer recall their names. I even recall telling my sister (only half jokingly, as her acting career has been excruciatingly slow on the uptake) that she might find some opportunities in the drill market.

A recent Google query for "Crisis Actor Jobs" returned this:

https://twitter.com/crisisactors

Perhaps I was remembering this site, which now returns a 404 message:

http://crisisactors.org/

Possible reasons for the current 404 status are elucidated by Professor James Tracy (of Anderson Cooper vs. Sandy Hook skeptic fame) at his Memory Hole Blog here:

Postby tokyojoe1 on December 15th, 2015, 2:02 am

OK, I did a good amount of research Saturday night on CrisisCast.com and I'm only getting around to posting it now.

My general vibe is that this website is phony. There might be legitimate crisis actor companies out there like what Jumpy posted (IIF Data) but they use industry jargon ("Role Player Support Services") and not blatant Crisis Actor language.

Let's start with the actual website itself -
1. First thing you notice is a very dramatic picture. In website psychology 101 they teach you that the main picture should be as emotionally catching as possible. These guys NAILED that, which is surprising considering how outdated their website looks.

2. The homepage is jam-packed with social proof awards, social media icons, client logos, etc. Again, another psychology 101 trick. What I don't understand is how they're using all these Web 2.0 psychology tricks yet have an older website. That just keeps getting me.

3. They provide a phone number and email in large font, but no physical location? This is what they say:
We are UK based with a presence in Bogota, Oman, Bahrain, Sydney and Capetown. Let us come to you.


No P.O. Box? Not even a virtual office at a Regus somewhere?

4. The video and video editing is VERY professional. Which again makes me wonder why the website looks old. The site was up in 2013, what are the excuses? Everything is top notch except the most important thing. That keeps bringing up my suspicions that it was purposely made this way.

5. When I ran my small business I spent a lot of time spying on my competition. One trick I learned to roughly figure out their earnings is to multiply the number of employees by $200,000. I found out about how many full-time employees they had by going on their Linkedin and seeing how many people list their company in their Linkedin profile.

Crisis Cast claims it can provide up to 400 actors but it's Linkedin only shows 2 employees: https://www.linkedin.com/company/crisiscast

How in the world is that possible? Not everybody has a Linkedin but pretty much EVERY young professional has one, and don't these guys employ lots of young actors and actresses? Is every single person they hire an independent contractor? It's fishy. At the very least they're lying about how big they are.

6. Another thing you learn is that you need clear keywords that describe your niche for Google SEO. The next thing you learn is that there are at least 10 guys in your space advertising up the ass on your keywords. If this is a thriving industry, you can expect companies to be bidding on Pay-Per-Click for Google Adwords and Bing Ads. The more competition and higher the prices, the more profitable the market is. No such thing here. No ads at all.

When I take the main keywords from the CrisisCast.com Meta Title, they keywords are "crisis management role play actors". When I Google those keywords, they are the only ones that show up. This tells me they are using jargon that none of their competition is using. That is SEO suicide, my friends. On the other hand, when I Google keywords from the IIF Data website "Role Player Support Services", those keywords are used by several websites. That is known and recognized industry jargon. Not so with Crisis Cast.

For somebody that spent thousands of dollars on video, video editing, and website optimization, I don't understand how they cheaped out on web design and SEO which are the first things anybody focuses on. Something doesn't add up.

7. Now it gets really interesting.

I started looking for websites that link to CrisisCast.com.

These "blogs" discuss CrisisCast.com but in a very weird way. They post lots of pictures and quote from the CrisisCast.com website but they offer very little content of their own. The difference between them and a content aggregator is that they are not simply copy and pasting, but seem to actually be trying to write a blog post, just with minimal effort.

See for yourself:

https://shakeymclovin.wordpress.com/201 ... he-nation/ (Scroll down to the 2nd article for this one).
http://dailyhaze.com/what-is-the-crisis-cast-website/

8. Earlier in this thread I mentioned how I think this website will be used in order to push the Icke and AJ crowd towards crisis actors and away from sims. Well now I have some evidence of that:

sign up at http://www.crisiscast.com and make lots of $$ and create false flags, fake news and treason

http://dailyhaze.com/what-is-the-crisis-cast-website/

Hmmmmm!!! Crisis managment role play actors


https://www.pinterest.com/pin/174866398005033824/

And to make matters worse, check out the shills posting on the David Icke forum:

Thank you, for being vigilant and bringing these vital bits of the puzzle to our attention.


I think that company would be a surprise to many people .. When I think of drills I think.. people laying or sitting with pretend wounds and you have to be told what their injuries are as they are not apparent in anyway. maybe sometimes a bit of blood or stick on wound but nothing on this scale


Simonshack linked to one of their pages in the Paris hoax thread....and I had a look at the site. OMFG! It's stuff we often talk about on our forum, but, when you see it all laid out so proudly.....it makes it much easier to show to people. We've seen other crisis firms' websites here and there, but this one is spectacular.

I'm hoping that people will realise just how likely it is that we have been duped over and over again.


9. I found some more "crisis actor" websites that link to CrisisCast.com somehow. I won't say exactly how I found them, so the spooks lurking on this forum have to figure it out for themselves.

presentationskillsprogrammes.co.uk
https://www.crisisguardian.com/en/crisis-management

The Crisis Guardian website is particularly interesting. The founder has a Linkedin, let's take a look at him:

Image

https://www.linkedin.com/in/eric-thompson-7527537

Does he look a little "simmy" to anybody else?

10. Let's get to the bottom of this whole "crisis actor" thing. Why is it so damn mainstream? When did it start?

I went on Google Trends and typed in "crisis actors" to see when that term started gaining popularity. Well turns out that term never "gained" popularity, it just "became" popular at once.

Image

In January 2013, there were 100 headlines with the term "Crisis Actors" in it. Before then, it never appeared anywhere. This was one month after Sandy Hook. Folks, I'm beginning to suspect the term "Crisis Actor" was planted into the media as distraction from VicSims.

That's why I think all of the companies that actually use the word "crisis" in the headline or domain name are purposeful disinformation. IIF uses the word only in a very jargon-like ways such as "areas of Crisis and Consequence Management". They have websites only for military insiders, they have no need to write for the layman, in fact they have reason to make it illegible for the layman.

I hope I laid out enough evidence for people to at least be suspicious of this site. If you're still needing a boost, consider the fact that nobody on the Icke forum is doubting it. In fact they seem to want to push it along.

Tokyojoe, all I can say is : great work, my warmest compliments for your sharp reasoning and insights - glad to have you on board. :)

As Hoi would say, "let's keep it real together" - so thanks for your help in doing so. And yes, I now remember that the whole 'crisis actors' meme started shortly after the Dec 14, 2012 Sandy Hook farce : here's a Dec 25, 2012 post by Hoi Polloi mentioning that very first (now defunct) "crisis actors.org" website:

hoipolloi wrote:An interesting link in our statistics program's lists of referrers (mackquigley.wordpress.com) has posted this website:

http://crisisactors.org/

It is about actors hired for crisis simulations. Red herring, front, more doublespeak revealing fake semblance of truth right under the noses of the public, or a clue?

viewtopic.php?p=2379303#p2379303

In hindsight, Hoi's initial intuition sounds pretty much on the money...

I agree with Simon, Tokyojoe1: excellent (virtual) detective work!

In fact, you convinced me that the crisisactor.com website is a fake or a cover to distract researchers from the real organizations that are involved in carrying out psy-ops.

Actually, I started being convinced of this even before reading your research (which nailed it anyway) when I discovered the IIF Data website, which looks legitimate, as you say yourself. And now, having understood the difference between the fake and the (possibly) true, I googled the "industry jargon" role player support services (without quotation marks) and found at least a couple of other sites that look even more legitimate .

The first is the San Diego-based Strategic Operations at http://www.strategic-operations.com/ser ... e-players/

This one really looks state-of-the-art. They even have a very convincing "business card" in the form of a stunning YouTube video.


full link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQ8JG-Uyltk

The second is an Australian company called Calytrix at http://www2.calytrix.com

Interesting name, I think. Its last part seems an alternative spelling for "tricks", while the first could be a masked reference to the warrior goddess Kali, so the result sounds something like "War tricks".

Anyway, they look extremely professional too, and introduce themselves with a convincing video.


full link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vQ2JT1iggo

So, after unmasking the fake website, what can we do with those that, like the three that I've discovered after the Crisis Actor one, look legitimate?

Could we ever go as far as to find links between them and actual psy-ops?

Sounds like a daunting (if not impossibile) task to me, but maybe Tokyojoe1, Simon or some of the other best researchers here could rise to the challenge...

Maybe yet another psyop is afoot, this time to deprecate the "crisis actor" concept among those who expose media fakery, which would explain the debunkable "Crisis Cast" website.

A motive for such a campaign ties in to something brought up during the recent Paris hoax: i.e. the oddly inappropriate demeanors of many crisis actors interviewed on TV. Such behavior would make sense however if the interviews were conducted before the actual fake terror event occurred. This pre-recording would be done so the actors' performances would not be affected by guilt, fear of getting caught, an impulse to confess, etc. brought on by their knowingly participating in a terror hoax.

The problem the psyoperators are looking at is, if "crisis actor" becomes too common a parlance, everyone in their acting pool will suspect something's amiss whenever called on to perform in a way that could later be used in a fake terror event. Foreknowledge of this type, even if based on mere suspicion, is outside (most of) these actors' need-to-know.

Consequently, it is possible we're being directed away from the "crisis actor" concept and sent down a variation of the ol' familiar "everything is fake" rabbit hole, when really what psyops use is both live actors and CGI sims.

Investigative journalism finds crisis actor setups.
Particular stories are found to be setups.
Investigative journalism wins by finding these particular stories, and the public feels protected.
News media wins by having these stories rooted out, while the remaining news is as true as ever.

Jumpy,

I never said that IIF Data was legitimate, just that it seemed more legitimate compared to Crisis Cast. It could very well be fake.

The Strategic Operations site looks even worse than Crisis Cast. It's a poor quality template, probably Wordpress. The video is impressive yes, but so were the Crisis Cast videos. It's got a really ugly color scheme to boot. Certainly not "state of the art" as you say.

Calytrix looks even worse. Like a website from the late 90's, early 2000's. Whoever made the video for Calytrix probably also made the videos for Crisis Cast because they have the same exact format (Logo introduction with music, sit-down interviews with authority type figures, spliced with action footage). They do have 40 Linkedin employees though.

You are correct that there are several pages of military companies specializing and recruiting for "Role Player Support Services". We may be getting close to the truth, but I'm still not totally sold.

I believe all of this crisis actor stuff is done internally in the military/IC. This is just too delicate to trust contractors with. Who knows what a young person might do or say after they see themselves on TV. I like Painterman's theory that all of these interviews are done before the event. And now that we are suspecting that "crisis actor" was planted in the media/conspiracy community, I'm suspicious of ALL websites promoting it, no matter how legit they look.

Edit: I took a look at the Strategic Services website again and I realized I wasn't looking at the homepage. It is a generic Web 2.0 template but definitely decent and good enough for any small business. A lot of poor formatting throughout. Again, it has the same red flags as Crisis Cast.
1. High quality photographs and video with amateur web design and SEO.
2. Filled with content on every page.

One thing that businesses struggled with whenever I sold them this kind of template was that they needed high quality pictures for the slider with the correct dimensions. That's why so many companies choose stock photos, because it's difficult to find a photo of themselves that fits. On this site, the pictures fit perfect and don't seem stock at all. It just doesn't feel right.

Looking at the Robbie Parker footage again, it feels suspicious.

This is the original video I saw that made me wonder what the hell was going on. In this video, half the screen is cut off and when the camera pans to him he is at the peak of his smile. It gives the impression that he was smiling the entire time before the camera panned.


full link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VKr-av9jVx8

Now let's watch the full footage from CNN. You can see clearly that the first video inexplicably cut the video in half vertically? Why would they do that?

You can now see Robbie Parker the entire time from the moment he walks in. He looks sad and nervous. Then he looks at some of the agents behind him, catches somebody's eye in front of him and then practically forces a big toothy smile for no reason at all and then starts talking to nobody in particular with a big smirk.


full link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0JoeXAFBbpQ

It's beginning to appear to me that Robbie Parker's objective was to flash a grin and a smirk at just the right moment before starting his sad speech. To cover up for his behavior prior to the smile, the "conspiracy" videos cut the video in half and panned to Parker at just the right moment so that it appeared he was cockily walking up to the podium. This gave the appearance that CNN "accidentally" aired that moment on live TV.

I think Parker's initial nervousness was genuine since he was being asked not just to be a crisis actor, but to also smile at just the right moment. You'll notice his jittery movements before he spoke which seem like real signs of nervousness. Once he did that, everything was smooth sailing.

Update: this is the website of the people who uploaded the first video: http://ourcorruptgov.blogspot.com/

Alex Jones, "They're trying to take our guns", and Sandy Hook.

I agree. Do we remember the HSEEP program that simon posted a while back? DHS itself has an elaborate role playing program. Why would they need to hire some actors with a bad website?

I wondered if HSEEP was maybe a red herring, too. Maybe it is. The first wiki page for it was created Jan 11, 2012. One early version of the wiki page says the doctrines of HSEEP were first published in 2002. So that gives it a little seniority at least.

Hey, thanks for the reminder, Thinktwice - it had slipped out of my mind !

My original HSEEP post is to be found here - but I think it may be worth reposting it here in this thread. So here we go:

***************************************

"HSEEP" - the Homeland Security's SIMULATION machine

Image
http://www.c3pathways.com/hseep.php

I recently stumbled into this "HSEEP" (no, not "SHEEP", folks - it's no typo of mine :P ) governmental program which is rather indicative as to just what sort of stuff 9/11 enabled and set off. To be sure, Wickedpedia tells us that HSEEP was launched in 2002:

"HSEEP The Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) provides a set of guiding principles for exercise programs, as well as a common approach to exercise program management, design and development, conduct, evaluation, and improvement planning. In 2002, the National Strategy for Homeland Security motivated Homeland Security Presidential Directives (HSPD) 5, 7, and 8 providing the national initiatives.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HSEEP


So HSEEP was started in 2002 - and it is all about simulation / simulating national disasters - i.e. staging drills: Here's FEMA's graphic meant to illustrate the 'strategy' of these so-called "preparedness exercices" purportedly to keep all of us hapless citizens safe in times of terror / disasters / and deadly virus epidemics...

Image

And here are a few excerpts from this exhaustive Homeland Security "HSEEP" pdf document :

"A progressive exercise program is a series of exercises tied to a set of common program priorities. Each exercise builds on previous exercises using more sophisticated simulation techniques or requiring morepreparation time, personnel, and planning."

"Simulation is a method of implementing the performance of a model, or combination of models, over time. Modeling and simulation supports decision - making processes by providing human and/or computer feedback to players during exercise play, thus dynamically representing the impact of their decisions. For example, human-based simulation during exercises is often manifested through the SimCell, which represents nonparticipating entities."

"An example of a computer-based simulation could include wind damage and storm surge forecasting models developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which enable simulation of a hurricane’s effects on coastal communities. Modeling and simulation can also be applied in situations where reality cannot be achieved. For example, for safety reasons a bioterrorism exercise cannot be conducted by releasing a deadly virus into the environment. However, it is still important to exercise the capabilities necessary to respond to this type of scenario. The use of modeling and simulation can realistically replicate variables such as disease propagation, radiation, and chemical attacks."

"Exercise program managers should also consider other resources that can support exercises.
Such resources can include:
• Information technology (e.g., modeling and simulation capabilities)
• Exercise tools and resources (e.g., document templates)
• Materials from previous exercises
• Training courses
• Mutual aid agreements, memoranda of understanding, and memoranda of agreement
• Technical assistance
• Equipment or props (e.g., smoke machines) " ( :mellow: )


Forgive me - but I can't help but feeling that this "HSEEP" acronym is some sort of 'insider-joke', considering that so many of these "drills" staged around the USA have turned out to be mere 'smoke-and-mirror' operations to sell fake terror events to millions of TV-addicted SHEEP.

Here is an excerpted Yahoo Finance press release from 2012 about a new "active shooter drill" company whose employees have "stage acting experience ranging from Shakespeare to contemporary American theater", no less. Those wanting to investigate further can click the link for the full text.


Active Shooter Crisis Actors Target Mall Shootings via Visionbox

DENVER, CO - (Marketwire - Oct 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.

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.
