Truman Show USA – “Concerned Citizens” at Town Hall Meetings are Often Paid Actors

Screen Shot 2016-02-23 at 10.37.00 AM

Here’s a bothersome trend that seems quite fitting for the smoke and mirrors driven, celebrity obsessed, hologram society that America has become. A company known as Crowds on Demand is actually in the business of providing fake protesters for causes, fake entourages for wanna be celebrities and seemingly even fake supporters for unpopular corporate activities.

This just furthers my feeling that action is far more important than traditional protests in the 21st Century. They key to getting out of the mess we are in is to actively create a parallel economy and even monetary system adjacent to the current terminal one. That way, when this one blows up, we already have the infrastructure in place to move to another paradigm. One characterized by peaceful, voluntary human interaction and dominated by decentralization in virtually all aspects of human existence.

– From the 2013 post: Protesters for Hire: For a Few Thousand Dollars We’ll Buy You a Small Entourage

I first highlighted the company Crowds on Demand over two years ago in the above post. Turns out it’s much worse than I could have imagined.

From NBC News:

In Camarillo, citizens aren’t shy about expressing their opinions. But on a chilly Wednesday night in December, city officials say one man stood out.

For nearly three minutes, Prince Jordan Tyson is on camera telling city leaders what he later admits, is a lie.

In fact, Tyson, who is not from Camarillo, is a self described struggling actor from Beverly Hills and he now believes he was involved in a secretive new industry where actors are hired to try and sway public officials.

In this case, a construction project in Camarillo he says he was hired to criticize.

“It was scripted, they told me what to say,” Tyson told NBC4.

Some of those scripted lines, he says were provided by recent UCLA graduate Adam Swart, CEO of a company called Crowds on Demand, which will stage rallies and demonstrations for any almost candidate or cause.

Swart says he has employed actors to sway city officials in meetings across the country.

“I have worked with dozens of campaigns for state officials, and 2016 presidential candidates,” Swart told NBC4, adding that he won’t name any names.

“I can’t go in to detail… if I did, nobody would hire us.”

The California Political Practices Commission tells NBC4 political campaigns are required by law to report expenditures.

But, public records indicate only one committee in the entire state has ever reported paying “Crowds On Demand”, that committee is Six California’s, the campaign to split California in to 6 different states.

State officials say some campaigns and politicians who hire “Crowds On Demand”… and fail to report campaign expenditures, could be breaking the law.

Hiring actors is not illegal. Although, entertainment law attorney and USC professor Lincoln Bandlow says telling those actors what to do and say could lead to lawsuits, if someone feels harmed.

“Paying someone to go out there and make false representations to a city council is going to give rise to possible fraud claims, possible intentional interference with business relations claims, maybe defamatory statement claims.”

Swart would not confirm to NBC4 that he hired Tyson or gave him lines, but says he has hired actors on multiple occasions to try and sway city officials across the country.

Swart tells NBC4 he has 20,000 actors across the country and most are required to sign a non-disclosure agreement.

If there’s a hell, this guy’s going. Personally, I’d settle for prison.

In Liberty,

  1. Unicorns For Political Reform Task Force

    Absolutely beyond belief what America has degenerated into. A place where the political process has been so corrupted some clown doesn’t bat an eye by making a living in fraudulently misrepresenting who and what a community constituency is.

    Michael, you are 100% correct. This is no point trying to reform that which is corrupted beyond redemption. Our leaders–on both sides of the isle–are every bit as compromised as scum like this guy who thinks “getting away with it” is the same thing as honest work.

    Burn it down. To the ground. Salt the earth. Obliterate every trace of this system which is responsible for so much misery, deceit and despair.

    • Hard to believe that the US has allowed the commodifcation (sp?) of lying and made it a profit center. Actually, no, it’s not hard to believe anymore.

    • Unicorns For Political Reform Task Force

      Absolutely right, Ryan; that hits the nail on the head. The ONLY consideration among so many Americans today is “Will it make me a buck?” Whether it is moral, ethical, will harm the community, subverts our hard-won liberties…who cares? They can buy another toy, like the Zucker-Rama 3D glasses. What’s not to like?

      I can’t even muster a dry heave for this shit anymore.

    • what you don’t realize it’s been going on long time but with the internet, it is easier to share this fact. The “history” of WWII is a total joke

  2. Does he also Sandy Hook and Boston Marathon type events?

  3. Sandy Hook, Boston Marathon, San Bernardino, 911, and OKC bombing all had supporting actors. Some of those actors were also quite violent. List is actually much longer I’m sure.

  4. Adam Swart and Crowds On Demand should be required by law to disclose all of their placements at events including political events, be they city council meetings, Senate hearings, false flags, EVERYTHING. If there are no laws to force them, politicians should get their heads out of their a$$holes and pass such laws.

    The American public just cannot keep up with the deviousness of the PTB to destroy this country. We have only so much time in the day and, thanks to NAFTA, CAFTA and soon to be TPP the economy has gotten so bad households have 2 adults often working 2-3 jobs a day just to keep from going further behind.

    Yep, become a prepper, buy some guns & ammo, nonperishable food, learn to grow food, survive in the wilderness, hoard some gold & silver. Sounds almost like hearkening back to the 19th century American “taming of the west” only in this situation it will be more “survival of the fittest.”

  5. If public assembly’s are to serve their (legitimate) function,
    then stuff such as this should be not merely eschewed,
    but should be Prosecuted.
    Fraud I Say, and racketeering too to boot.
    I have long since lost faith in the ‘Vox Populi”..
    in part because too many are idiots, and stuff like this.


  6. The Indian yogi that moved to America named Yogananda. His quote: the whole world is Brahma’s stage and we are all actor’s on that stage, and he places us as he will, and we all play our parts.” Address of Sandyhook Elementary school: 36 Yogananda Street. Coincidence? Who named this school built in 1956 after an Indian yogi? Brahma carries a water bottle…so did all the actors at the Boston Marathon. Brahma…god of Illusion…that is Ilu of Sion…”Maya” the high priest of Sais-On.
