Has anyone ever read FEMA "IS-139 Exercise Design"?

Last night, while talking to my friend about the school shooting in Florida, I remembered that I wrote this essay back in 2011 about FEMA's practice of creating 'exercises' -- ranging from table top to full scale. In my opinion, the central document FEMA IS-139 that I found about 10 years ago on FEMA's website is basically a blueprint for planning and staging false flag events.

PLEASE USE THE ESSAY BELOW FOR A BRIEF INTRODUCTION. I know it has grammatical errors, but it's a cut and paste from the original and I wanted to keep it as original as possible. FEMA's IS-139 has been seemingly scrubbed from the internet -- at least FEMA's website. I had to go through two hard drives to find it. The link is for the google drive file containing the 'course' IS-139 and it's several hundred pages long, I recommend reading it in it's entirety as it deals with players (actors), staged deaths, prepared false media statements, and more.

To me, after originally reading the FEMA doc along with many other articles and breakdowns, it's apparent that the GOV can and probably does stage false flag events for the purposes of political gain. What a better way to pull the rug over unwitting participants eyes than to disguise the whole operation as an 'exercise'? Maybe this is why we always hear of reports from people on the ground during these major operations asking: "Is this real world" or "Is this a drill?"... Remember the London bombings? Remember 9/11? The list goes on.



Recipe For Disaster: FEMA Paves The Way For False Flag Terrorism

February 7, 2011

“The monster was the best friend I ever had!” – Boris Karloff

Dracula, the Werewolf, and Frankenstein are well known for terrorizing peasants in the middle of the night. By stealth, by force, or by misinterpretation - all three of these classic monsters wrecked havoc throughout the countryside until brave individuals and angry mobs finally grew exhausted of losing their loved ones and decided to take matters into their own hands. Of course, there was always the “discovery” - where villagers realized something evil was afoot, then tides began to turn and the hunter became the hunted. Good always won because someone decided that action outweighed fear. Since then, many other characters have been added to Hollywood’s repertoire of fear, paranoia, and anxiety -whether it’s Aliens or the Omen, the tactics never end, but they do become more familiar (predictable even).

Not long ago, I stumbled upon an interesting two hundred-something page document entitled “IS-139 Exercise Design” Found on FEMA’s Emergency Management Institute website.

This do-it-yourself course lays out the fundamental methodology of FEMA’s creative side where participants can study at home to become masters of deception while doing it all in the name of “disaster preparedness”. Of course, most flag-waving Americans that read this document will shrug at any hint of wrongdoing but just as in film: Once you see Dracula, you know how vampires bite. Nevertheless, this FEMA document breaks down the learning process into five main activities - beginning with an orientation seminar where participants become familiarized with their individual roles, plans, equipment, and procedures. The next activity is the “drill” where a specific [and important] aspect of the overall emergency management system is singled out for refinement and perfection. An example of conducting an effective drill may be utilizing slides or photographs of a real plane crash to recreate a convincing disaster scenario. The planner then closely monitors the recreated event and the emotional reactions of participants as events unfold to make note of improvements. The third activity in the progression of effective exercise design is called the Tabletop Exercise. The Tabletop Exercise provides a relatively stress-free environment where planners discuss ways to enhance the realism of the final exercise (no official action is taken at this stage) - it’s a little like making a model of a car before building the full- sized car - no resources (ex: medical, police, military) are deployed yet.

After select teams of qualified individuals have succeeded in developing a satisfactory Tabletop Exercise, the fourth activity is known as the Functional Exercise, which is a “Full-simulated interactive exercise that test the capability of an organization to respond to a simulated event” (Exercise Design p.212).

Just like actors taking orders from directors on a film set, this is an interactive exercise that even employs the talents of real actors or “players” who perfect their reactions to planned and sequenced messages given to them by “simulators”. It’s a stressful and complex format where minute details are monitored and controlled. On page 213 of Exercise Design, players and simulators are initially separated – then the use of television, radio, and telephone messages create an essential element of realism. Eighteen months of preparation are needed to create an effective Functional Exercise.

Last but not least, comes the big one - the Full Scale Exercise. In a Full Scale Exercise, events are as real as they get - it’s a “Highly stressful environment that simulates actual response conditions...” (Exercise Design p.215). All entities and response teams are tested in real-time where the use of simulated victims, staged environments and pre-planned media coverage fabricates a “visual narrative” (basically, the center of public attention). This is meant to heighten adrenaline and enhance emotion on all levels. It’s a “trial by fire” – as page 216 puts it. Simulated disasters in the form of burning buildings, WMD’s, plane crashes, and other events are witnessed by whomever the planners want; while policy makers, operatives, and field personnel are all used to make this staged event as believable as possible. If you want to do it right, plan on spending up to one and a half years preparing for a Full Scale Exercise.

As The old saying goes: “Time is money” – these events aren’t cheap and it takes a lot of time to train qualified participants, so naturally there are pros in exercise design. Examples would be The Oak Ridge Institute and the folks at NIMS – short for The National Incident Management System that governs the emergency response in many states.

Just like a good horror film takes a good story, good directing, and good actors to become a box office hit, so does a good disaster. Everyone remembers the movie that scared them most. It’s quite feasible that with so much time, money and energy spent on creating perfect disasters – taking it to the next level would be quite easy. Just like the 7/7 London Bombings in 2005 where a practice disaster was taking place at the exact moment when a real bombing event occurred.

Sometimes the scariest things are hidden in plain sight.

is basically a blueprint for planning and staging false flag events.


And also a blueprint for how to run an exercise.

If you're going to run an active shooter exercise then part of that exercise would be to theorize what an active shooter would do in a given situation.

I am among those that believe FEMA was not set up to help the individual person, but at least might have had a mission to help minimize the chaos in a larger population during a disaster.

As an individual, for this reason, I really have not been too fond of FEMA, because I tend on average to be more prepared than most people for disasters, by choice and by action. To me, FEMA seems more likely to hinder my ability to help my family and loved ones, than to benefit them.

But I still left the door open that there could be some good to having FEMA.

This document is completely disturbing. Thank you for the thread. I hope it isn't true .... but wow.

Now I wonder ... might it be better to just dissolve FEMA?

I have taken the course. It teaches Emergency Operations Planners at all levels on how to create and test emergency response plans. You cannot train firefighters, EMS, LE or others on how to help people if you do not train. The more realistic the training is the better, because this teaches muscle memory etc. There is a lot that goes into these training operations, sometimes over a year or two of planning, depending on the scale, number of agencies participating etc. There is a lot of things you have to learn and think about when it comes to setting up training events. That is what this course teaches. There is an old saying - you fight as you train, so train as you fight - that goes across all spectrum of jobs.

This program is not a course to stage false flags, but for training. You are way over thinking this, and hate to say it, but grasping at straws.

Then why...just why?? Is there always rumors of these training exercises and real proof of training exercises at huge real " live" events? Is it because these single high school mentally disturbed shooters plan their attacks on the same days? It is just too many coincidences for my comfort level.

The course you mention is a course to aid in emergency planners to do just that plan for different disasters and scenarios to train their relevant groups to be prepared and aid in the response, the course is not a course on how to do false flags.

No matter what one plans for, including those that are up to nefarious acts, there is planning, dry runs, tabletops, etc. I get what you are saying, however this course is not what you are implying it is.

Well now that's a silly response. As someone who trained through it, I'd suspect you'd be more inclined to see the relevance of making a situation as real as you can the perfect asset for building a "believable" false flag. But, whatever.

I was in an earth quake once, barely trembled the walls. I don't understand where all these people get off saying they are so devastating and deadly. I didn't even have any broken plates or glasses. I don't believe all these people saying their houses were destroyed and lives ruined. I mean, what is the big deal? My house is fine, my life is great.

That sound familiar at all or is my analogy way off?

I got pulled over by the police once, didn't even get shot, beat up, or killed. I mean what is the big deal with all these folks saying cops kill people? Look at me, I am just fine.

My wife took a pregnancy test once, it wasn't even positive. Where are all these damn kids coming from? I don't have any.

Say what you want about Infowars or Alex Jones, but they usually break news way before the Main Stream Media cries uncle. This David Hogg fella graduated high school in 2015?? What was he doing there DURING the live DRILL / event?

I say something smells funky (again) with this latest school shooting.

"Students were told to prepare for a “shooting drill” with police firing blanks to scare them right before the actual shooting happened, says a student who survived the Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting.
Connor Dietrich told CNN that officials told him and fellow students that, prior to the shooting that killed 17, police would be firing blanks for a live drill."
www.infowars.com...


One of the leading voices of the “Never Again” movement has people questioning when students knew the Florida school shooting was real and not a drill after videos show a discrepancy between his accounts.
David Hogg caused confusion when he said he knew the shooting was real, not a drill while he was hiding in a closet and the shooter was still at large, but he later claimed he believed it was a drill until SWAT escorted him outside.
While hiding in a closet during the shooting, Hogg tells the camera, “There is an active shooter. This is not a drill. I heard one gunshot and we thought it was a drill initially, but it’s not.”
www.infowars.com...


Anti-gun activist and Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school student David Hogg interviewed classmates about gun control during what was believed to be the actual shooting.
However, unedited video shows Hogg saying he’s recording the interview at 9:32 on February 14th, 2018, almost 4 hours before the shooting took place.
www.infowars.com...


“I’m not a crisis actor,” Hogg said on AC360 Tuesday, accompanied by his father, who’s retired FBI. “I’m someone who had to witness this and live through this and I continue to be having to do that.”

Again the course is to train people on how to create and run training operations, from pre planning to breakdown and AARs. It can be utilized for ANY size of an event you wish, from table topping (talking/roleplaying) to full scale fully interactive training scenarios.

Could they use it to plan a false flag, duh yes (any training or operations training could be), is that what the course is for no.

Maybe because there are rouge elements that want to use these for ulterior motives.

The class has actually nothing to do with the events. It is a class to instruct emergency planners on how to plan and run, various size training events.

David Hogg graduated high school in 2015, never attended school in Parkland, says fellow classmate

ussanews.com...

“I went to school with him at Redondo Shores High School in California and he graduated in 2015”
PARKLAND, Fla. (INTELLIHUB) — The new face of gun control and the son of a former FBI agent, David Hogg, told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that he’s not a crisis actor, despite the fact that he graduated high school in the State of California in 2015 and likely never attended Stoneman Douglas Hogh School in Parkland, Florida, as he claims.

That’s right, David Hogg, who claims to be a current student at Stoneman Douglas H.S. in Parkland, Florida where 17 people were reportedly shot and killed, actually attended and graduated Redondo Shores High School, in Redondo Beach, California, according to a fellow student who attended Redondo Shores High School and is even pictured in the yearbook.

“David Hogg didn’t attend #Parkland high school. I went to school with him at Redondo Shores High School in California and he graduated in 2015. Here he is in our yearbook from 2015,” Twitter user @LagBeachAntifa9 Tweeted Tuesday.


The kid's dad is FBI. The kid loves CNN. The kid din't even go to Parkland?



I know good folks train everyday for worst case scenarios, but when you actually pull the trigger on someone, it's no longer a drill -- it's a live fire event. As I recall, there was a "drill" on 9/11 also... Heck, the building engineers even planned and designed the twin towers to be able to withstand a plane crash.

I think YES -- there are good, patriotic folks working as rank & file in FEMA. BUT not all are good or patriotic.

The Parkland shooting has seemed off from the start. I have to admit the instant anti-gun response, it's depth of development and ready made sayings and hashtags, the social media onslaught are all too professional. Almost as if they were waiting in the wings for the right pretext/event. The interviews are often plainly scripted, you can see them reading, the emotions don't resonate with me and all to often different kids will use the same wordings. I wouldn't put anything past certain people in this world. Damn shame so many at FEMA work for them.
