The Rise of the Crisis Actor Conspiracy Movement

Views:1004350|Rating:3.65|View Time:25:1Minutes|Likes:14099|Dislikes:5224
Over the past 10 years, a growing online community of conspiracy theorists and hoaxers known as “truthers” has come to question the official narratives behind every mass shooting that is heavily covered by the media. A common thread in these theories is the government’s role in staging the tragedy with the help of mainstream news, in order to manipulate the general population. In this continuously recycled narrative, the death and destruction of the tragic event is faked, and victims and their families are “crisis actors,” who are performing a role in order to elicit sympathy that can then be used to advocate for new gun laws, or anti-terror surveillance that restricts Americans’ freedom. The commitment to these narratives has escalated to the point where victims are frequently harassed, mocked, and even threatened in retaliation for their supposed deception.

We meet some of the proponents of false flag theories, including Side Thorn, a conspiracy theorist in Texas who has been confronting survivors of the Sutherland Springs mass shooting, as well as Tony Mead, administrator of the largest Facebook community dedicated to False Flag narratives, and Wolfgang Halbig, a former school administrator who made a name for himself with the claim that no one died at the Sandy Hook shooting. We also talk to people targeted by hoax theories, like Lenny Pozner whose son Noah was killed in the Sandy Hook shooting, David Hogg, who was accused of being a “crisis actor” for his calls for gun control after the mass shooting at his high school in Parkland, Florida, and Frank Pomeroy, whose daughter was killed in the Sutherland Springs shooting.

T/I: 10:52:26
A growing number of people in Vietnam are turning towards religion
as the country’s economy embraces capitalism and brings huge
social changes. Church and temple attendance have gone up in
recent years, but one religion in particular is becoming very
popular. Caodaism, an indigenous religion influenced by Eastern
and Western religious traditions, is enjoying particular
popularity among the Vietnamese because of its mix of Buddhist,
Taoist and Christian thought.Its rituals incorporate many aspects of the world’s major religions, including Hinduism, Islam and Christianity.

Sung by the Plymouth Men’s Chorus of First Plymouth Church, Lincoln Nebraska on July 27, 2014. Tom Trenney conducting.
Rise up, O men of God!
Have done with lesser things.
Give heart and mind and soul and strength
To serve the King of kings.

Rise up, O men of God!
The kingdom tarries long.
Bring in the day of brotherhood
And end the night of wrong.

Rise up, O men of God!
The church for you doth wait,
Her strength unequal to her task;
Rise up and make her great!

Lift high the cross of Christ!
Tread where His feet have trod.
As brothers of the Son of Man,
Rise up, O men of God!

Mystery Missing Bodies Cheshire Graveyard Rise News Alum Creek Reservoir Columbus Ohio April 10

Where are the bodies?

Caskets rose from the graveyard. They do it every so often. This event seemed timed with Easter.

The mystery is: where are the bodies? Why would people bury caskets with no bodies?

This is a beautiful old cemetery, but it is generally buried under the water. It is in Cheshire, Ohio, and belonged to the Cheshire Church. The church is gone, but some of the lovely stones remain.

Many news crews, CBS NBC ABC FOX TV, came to watch. Helicopters circled.

At times authorities worry about arsenic in the drinking water and the recreation area.

Later they announced that remains were found in some of the caskets.
