Note: Thanks to I found much information at the site, as well as links to relevant articles.

Whether mass shootings are approached as the mainstream reports them, or as false flags, staged scenarios, or outright hoaxes, there is a common thread which runs through some of them: official training exercises held just prior to, or at the same time as, the shootings.

I’m not trying to present an all-inclusive list here.

The November 13, 2015, Paris attacks: “Since the Charlie Hebdo attacks in January, from which 16 people died, Paris-area ambulance crews and emergency personnel have taken part in regular exercises designed to test their readiness for possible attacks. One such exercise was held on Friday morning, the day of the latest terror attacks. In a twist of fate, the simulated emergency was a mass shooting, according to Dr. Mathieu Raux, emergency room chief at the Pitié-Salpetrière hospital in Paris.” (Bloomberg, 11/17/15, “Hours Before the Terror Attacks, Paris Practiced for a Mass Shooting”)

The Charleston, South Carolina, church shooting, June 17, 2015: See The Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers Advanced Training Schedule chart (in the article), which lists training courses in various locations. The chart indicates that, in Charleston, there was an “Active Shooter Threat Instructor Program” from June 15 to June 19, which overlapped the church shooting. (, 6/24/15, “‘Active Shooter Drills’ Took Place in the Same Day as Charleston Shooting…”)

Boston Marathon attack, April 15, 2013: In this case, the training exercise was called off, because the real thing happened before the exercise took place—“…the DHS-funded drill, known as ‘Operation Urban Shield,’ was intended to take place during the summer, according to the Boston Globe — that is until the ‘real’ event beat it to the punch. But the drill itinerary so closely resembles what actually occurred the day of the bombings that even the mainstream media source responsible for bringing it to light could not help but point out this incredible ‘coincidence,’ …The [training exercise] scenario had been carefully planned: A terrorist group prepared to hurt vast numbers of people around Boston would leave backpacks filled with explosives at Faneuil Hall, the Seaport District, and in other towns, spreading waves of panic and fear, explains the Boston Globe…” (Natural News, 6/22/13, “DHS documents prove Boston Marathon bombing was false flag ‘drill’ planned months in advance”)

Sandy Hook school shooting, December 14, 2012: “By grim coincidence, even as the terrible events were unfolding in Newtown on Friday morning, the Putnam County Emergency Response Team (‘ERT’) happened to be assembled for regular training in Carmel, and team members were at that very moment engaged in a mock scenario of an active-shooter in a school. The ERT is comprised of specially trained and heavily armed officers from the Sheriff’s Office and the Carmel and Kent Police Departments. When news broke of the Newtown shooting, the Putnam County ERT commander called Newtown Police and offered to have the ERT respond to the Sandy Hook school, but that response was not needed because Connecticut police had already secured the scene.” (Southeast-Brewster Patch newspaper, 12/18/12, “Sheriff: Putnam Officials to Talk School Safety This Afternoon”)

The July 20, 2012, Aurora, Colorado, “Batman” shooting: “The tragedy that played out in an Aurora movie theater Friday was ironically paralleled as a classroom learning experience in a medical school in Parker the same day. Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine is in the middle of holding specialized classes in disaster life support for 150 second-year medical students. Along with response to natural disasters like hurricanes and floods and terrorist attacks, one of the scenarios being used to train the students is how to respond if a shooter fires at people in a movie theater and also uses a bomb in the attack. ‘The irony is amazing, just amazing,’ said Rocky Vista Dean Dr. Bruce Dubin.” (Denver Post, 7/21/12, “Real life shooting imitates training exercise at Parker medical school”)

The Oslo bombing/shooting attack, July 22, 2011: “Only hours before Anders Behring Breivik began shooting children on Utøya, the police emergency squad concluded an exercise where they practiced an almost identical situation. Four days in advance, and also the same Friday the attack was carried out, the police special unit trained on an ongoing terror campaign that was approximately equal to the situation that hours later, met the 22 police officers within the emergency squad on Utøya. As far as Aftenposten has been informed, the training transcended directly into what the policed then faced in the Tyrifjord that very day; a mobile terror attack, in which one or more perpetrators only goal was to shoot as many people as possible and then shoot the police when they arrived. Only 26 minutes after the emergency squad’s training had concluded, the car bomb went off in the government quarter. The Emergency Squad arrived early on the scene.” (, 8/30/11, “Norwegian Police Conducted Drill for ‘Almost Identical’ Scenario Minutes Before Utoya Massacre”)

The 7/7/2005 bomb attacks on the London underground: “A fictional ‘scenario’ of multiple bomb attacks on London’s underground took place at exactly the same time as the bomb attack on July 7, 2005.

“Peter Power, Managing Director of Visor Consultants, a private firm on contract to the London Metropolitan Police, described in a BBC interview how he had organized and conducted the anti-terror drill, on behalf of an unnamed business client.

“The fictional scenario was based on simultaneous bombs going off at exactly the same time at the underground stations where the real attacks were occurring:

POWER: At half past nine this morning we were actually running an exercise for a company of over a thousand people in London based on simultaneous bombs going off precisely at the railway stations where it happened this morning, so I still have the hairs on the back of my neck standing up right now.

HOST: To get this quite straight, you were running an exercise to see how you would cope with this and it happened while you were running the exercise?

POWER: Precisely, and it was about half past nine this morning, we planned this for a company and for obvious reasons I don’t want to reveal their name but they’re listening and they’ll know it. And we had a room full of crisis managers for the first time they’d met and so within five minutes we made a pretty rapid decision that this is the real one and so we went through the correct drills of activating crisis management procedures to jump from slow time to quick time thinking and so on. (BBC Radio Interview, 7 July 2005—as reported at Global Research, 8/8/15, “Ten Years Ago: The London 7/7 Mock Terror Drill: What Relationship to the Real Time Terror Attacks?”)

the matrix revealed

9/11/01 attacks on Trade Center and the Pentagon: No less than 22 drills took place on that day, among which was a National Reconnaissance Office exercise in Chantilly, Virginia, involving a simulated plane crashing into a tall building. (See Kevin Barrett’s chart of 9/11 training exercises “The 46 drills, operations, war games, and activities of 9/11”, based on Webster Tarpley’s book, 9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made in USA (5th Ed))

    Here are screen captures of messages “tweeted out” by The Boston Globe that day of the Boston Marathon false flag event:

    Both of these tweets were subsequently deleted from The Globe’s Twitter timeline, as if they’d never been posted.

    The Boston Marathon “bombings” were the most amateurishly-scripted and -executed productions ever. It was almost hilarious; it was so pathetically carried out. But having young immigrants die as part of the cover story is infuriating, for me.

    “Boston Strong” … what a joke: a motto for brain-dead morons who are okay with armed guerrilla federal forces forcing them out of their homes while they search them without a warrant and under knowingly false pretenses.

    • Almost had me says:

      Those tweets came out at 3:53pm EST 12:53pm PST, an hour after the first bomb went off. If another bomb / suspected bomb is reported, The bomb squad does a controlled blast to safley dispose of it.

  2. From Québec says:

    This is what Alex Jones has been saying all the time. If there is a driil going on at the same time, you cant bet your botten dollar that it is a False Flag.



    “Government always has drills in case the compartmentalized group of mercenaries that are caring it out, while wearing police or FBI uniforms get caught, they can say “OH it was just part of the drill”

  3. Reblogged this on John Barleycorn and commented:
    This article deserves some serious consideration.

  4. These coincidences have not gone unnoticed here, too, Jon.

    I intend to reference this in my next part on “ISIS” (which will deal with Zionism & its objectives).

    Part of the agenda personifying the destruction of Racism (one human “race” and disconnection of true genetic identity) is the creation of nationalism (managed societies). Open borders defy Zionist principles (i.e. a global fortress). Paris has ensured Schengen (1985) has come under fire.

    Follow my drift?


    • hi says:

      Idk – seems isis is created by similar types that do this kind of thing. From my understanding this ridiculous zionist tripe is partially race based thinking – so I’d question any idea that they’re not. The reality of genetic diversity & human history destroys the manufactured race based construct. Again when you look at the true reality of incredible cultural tribal diversity & movements of people through history in different areas & conditions – that pretty much destroys a lot of questionable genetic based ideas – whose expression is governed more by environment than anything. Nationalism has long been a tool of imposed cultural programming for manipulative purposes in more recent fascism it’s a key feature, like racism, sexism & so on – very handy for capitalist corporate enterprise also… There can be so many myths with humans.

      • Actually I need to correct you here. Zionism confronts a number of Jewish secular objectives, but most Jews [that I have discussed the subject with] are very vague on the use of the term (i.e. a union of Zion). They mostly interpret the “concept” as self-assured State (along the lines of messianic doctrine).

        However, Zion is a variation of Sion, which means “fortress” or “PRISON”. Thus, Zionism means unified prison or “prison planet”. This is where the Jews I have discussed the matter with become particularly foggy. When I put to them, their “self-assurance” MEANS the MARGINALISATION of everyone else, I am always greeted with silence – abject silence!

        • hi says:

          Well, there’s more to the whole thing from what I’ve seen – from claims the whole zionist hoopla began as a manufactured hoax, from it being applied to all sorts of people & areas where there may be other ideologies at play & so on. This idea of marginalisation of everyone not jewish – again has it’s roots in some imaginary religious twaddle & fictional race concepts. So again, to say that it’s against racism seems incorrect. There’s also the issue around people coming from such a background – yet having no practice religious or ethnic with what was a phase for a variety of middle easternish folk (with many different factions & expressions – like any such phenomena), being lumped in with such nonsense. Again that goes into socio-cultural engineering & such & some elite types with wacky ideas. Not to mention incredible amounts of disinfo & pushing of all sorts of nonsense ideas & ideologies pushed onto supposed groups manipulated via some rather contrived, well funded, possibly covert methods. Nature does not demonstrate any variation on the human form via environmental effects to be superior to any other across the board – or above other creatures so genetically similar in the same life form arena. Personally, I don’t see any value in centralised states or manufactured cultural centralisation under a hierarchical, military, exploitative, abusive system. It has resulted in environmental & very real human destruction – there is little positive to say about it & is quite a difficult problem to surmount.

          • Agreed, “Judaism” is a front for synthetic factionalism. I believe better name for Zionism is “globalism”. This, at least, has a clear commercial objective. The puppets appear to have [thus far] reacted to plan to the letter. I see no “revolution” prospects at all.

          • hi says:

            Hmmm – I think zionism is only one ideological shade of the globalist shitshow – considering all the different (& many somewhat similar) themes of ideas & beliefs, whether organised religious cult or otherwise – the reality of power seems more messy & diverse to me. There’s been little in the way of genuine revolution & even those that manage some gains – many get crushed & it’s quite a slog where restrictions via vested interests bring limitations. Thanks for chatting. 🙂

    Ottawa Canada, Oct 21, 2014 Shooting at the Tomb of the Soldier monument, then at Parliament House. Why were there 10-20 police cars parked the next street over a half hour before?

  6. Wusssr says:

    Here you go John. Stumbled across this in a reader reply from starviego. He has cross-checked clothing, time of shootings, everything. Don’t think this information has been condensed, distilled, or charted yet. Complements, sharpens the focus on your col. You’re right. It’s all scripted. Somewhere on a YouTube Holder lets slip “. . . we have to conduct these type of operations in order to convince the American people . . .” Will look.


  7. stickbear999 says:

    Don’t forget the Port Arthur Massacre in 1996. There were several training seminars going on nearby for police and emergency services… which was a lucky coincidence, surely?

    Reblogged this on Laura Bruno's Blog and commented:
    Thank you, Jon, for the compilation. This won’t be news to some readers, but it’s important for more people to recognize all the co-inki-dinks in this absurdly simulated reality. Beware of active shooter drills in your area, and publicly document advertisements for crisis actors. Also notice the tell-tale immediate spin: behold, the magical passport that opens portals to other wars! Watch in amazement as that very same magical passport destroys natural human rights in the name of security. Watch as we shove your self respect into this tiny box and slice it in half before you can say abracadabra. Poof! It’s gone.

    May the props drop and spectacles fail. There are so many more interesting and life affirming, creative possibilities than the sick, rerun scripts the media-military-industrial complex churn out ad nauseam.

    Poetic Justice, please feel free to make a cameo appearance. Your presence would spin these hackneyed plots in a refreshing, new direction. The boy who cried wolf meme can work both ways. What happens if the “useful idiots” and “useless eaters” get so bored with all the trauma-drama that they refuse to perform their appointed roles? What happens if all the actors and the audience walk off stage and out the theater door? What happens if the gloating producers and directors slip on rotten tomatoes and GMO banana peels?

    What happens if we make them obsolete? They push control; we hit alt, delete.

    It’s catchier than the Hegelian Dialectic, and a much more effective “solution.” In a world of mediocre scripts, uninspired characters, and tawdry spin doctors, become your own show. Play your life with skill, passion and excellence, and as you begin to realize how good you are: show some self respect! No one needs to whore after a “director.” You are stardust. You are golden. Get out of the theater and into the garden.

    • I love your poem Laura.
      Good stuff…

      “This won’t be news to some readers, but it’s important for more people to recognize all the co-inki-dinks in this absurdly simulated reality.” -Laurabruno

      …never heard it put, quite that way….’co-inki-dinks’, hmmm. Reality TV, it really took off.
      Making them obsolete, yes.

    • Ruth4theTruth says:

      Yes, this would certainly be a very effective method– leave the stage and create what is upright and just for self and all concerned. It’s not difficult to do. Just do it…it’s simple. Ditch the drama!

    • V says:

      Ok that’s it. I’m subscribing to your blog. This is beautifully said- cheers!

  9. Mary says:

    Same actors, different city. Wonder what the pay scale is?

  10. ignasi orobitg gene says:

    The coincidence is also in counterterrorism exercises 1 to March 10, 2004, in various European capitals including Madrid-between the next day suffered the murder of 198 people in explosions in public transport.
    So many coincidences are an impossible coincidence.

  11. Todd says:

    Regarding the parallel training events and the real thing.
    It seems to me that we are being mocked by some very powerful people. I think they want us to know that it’s a false flag and that there is nothing we can do about it. “We” being the people that doubt the main stream narrative.

    • uninformedluddite says:

      You have hit the nail on the head. They are mocking us. They are so jaded and broken that this is what they consider entertainment.

  12. John Mack says:

    FBI, ” No one died at Sandy Hook.” Google, FBI TITLE 8, 2012, Connecticut, Newtown. 0 murders. See “”. It was a False Flag event. To Disarm America by Globalist NWO. See U Tubb, ” Crisis Actors “.

  13. zerowolfe says:

    our crack officials are always protecting its citizens from harm….always in the right place and at the right time…god bless America…Reverend Wright!

  14. zerowolfe says:

    now the really tough job of inventing names for the shooters and victims…and creating identities and funerals for people who are works of CIA fiction….Looks like a loud parade going through Berdoo…never a drop of blood spilled in these “exercises” of a police state….they worry about the safety of the citizens first…then solve the crime…my heroes!!!!

  15. Reblogged this on TheBreakAway and commented:
    Here is a small, but powerful list of coincidences that start begin to shift from the ‘coincidence’ side of the meter all the way to the coordination side.

  16. Laura Palmer says:

    You can add the Marysville Wa School shooting to it as well. or there’s more evidence it was a drill here

  17. Reblogged this on encompassingchaos and commented:
    This keeps eerily happening…training exercises around the same time as the live event. The really sad part about this that gets me every time is that REAL people are loosing their lives. I do not for once think that those lives lost are fake or are actors.
    I really hope that there is not some rogue government agency coming up with this stuff and people are actually loosing their lives over some greater agenda, but my mind can’t stop thinking about all the atrocities that have been wrought on peoples by their government. Throughout history this has happened, and in American history there have been 100’s of “conspiracy theories” that have later turned out not so theoretical.

    Our jobs as citizens is not to sit by idly and complacent while these “coincidences” keep happening. It is our job to question and create alternative theories to try and figure out where we have gone wrong as a people. Is our society really creating these people? What trauma does our current system impose upon our youth that this is the end result?

    Gun control certainly is not the answer. We can see from history that many many more objects can be used other than guns to cause mass murder. Just do a Google search.

    If there is not some greater conspiracy behind these events, then there is something seriously wrong with our society and we need to fix it.

    Please contemplate your lives and the lives of those around you. What things can you do to create peace in the lives of others?

    My mind and heart cannot fathom why the parents of a 6 month old baby would go through with something like this. They just celebrated the birth of new life and in turn took the lives of so many. What went wrong?

    • Skeletor says:

      Follow the money. Usually after a “mass shooting” a lot of scams spring up in the form of “victim fundraising”. Yet the Sandy Hook “shooting” is by far the one which has created more fake fundraising schemes. I wonder why.

    Mass shootings up 700% under Obama……..And he is right on it before the bodies are even cold.
