Regarding Claims Made Against Jim Stewartson
A letter from Brent Allpress, January 6, 2023
Ever since I launched RADICALIZED Truth Survives with Jim Stewartson, High Fidelity, and Sean Conner I knew we had something special. Our investigative show about disinformation has brought global awareness to the who and the why of the fight of our lifetime.
From the moment we released our first episode featuring Dave Troy warning about cryptocurrency, we have been the target of a cabal of hate terrorists who spend their waking hours tormenting me and my team, rather than participating in the labor of democracy.
Anyone I work with or who we platform is targeted, and when a defamatory message was sent about Jim to one of my teams, Brent Allpress wrote a letter in defense of Jim. Allpress is an OSInt investigative researcher who testified to the January 6 Committee and whose work exposing Cambridge Analytica and the Council for National Policy was featured in the film, People You May Know.
It is not lost on me that Brent happened to write the letter on the second anniversary of the January 6 Insurrection, which Jim and his allies warned people to stay away from.
Here is that letter:
Subject: Regarding Claims Made Against Jim Stewartson
It’s useful to clarify that Jim Stewartson is the target of an ongoing coordinated Twitter Troll Crew attack that has now moved offline.
He posted his original research on Twitter, exposing through a comparative video edit that Mike Flynn had plagiarized a Theosophical sermon by Elizabeth Clare Prophet, repurposed as a Christian Nationalist Prayer that Flynn led a congregation to recite in prominent conservative Christian church.
This PsyOps failure was potentially very damaging to Flynn’s ongoing Christian Nationalist radicalisation campaign where he proposed “one nation, one religion” and endorsed far right Christian candidates on his “Reawakening” tour in 2022.
Most conservative Christians would view the militant Theosophical “I Am” theology of Elizabeth Clare Prophet as heretical.
Stewartson was attacked on Twitter by a Troll Crew and mass reported leading to the unwarranted suspension of his Twitter account.
When I reposted Stewartson’s comparative video of Elizabeth Clare Prophet and Flynn on his behalf the same Troll Crew came after me.
They were a group on the supposed left who were Flynn apologists and when I methodically blocked all of them, around 15 accounts, they became very frustrated in their inter-Crew posts and personally abusive of myself.
One account in particular (REDACTED) had protected posts and appeared to coordinate the others.
I have tracked and reported this Twitter Troll Crew continuing to engage in targeted harassment of Jim Stewartson’s off-Twitter blog posts.
They are selectively reposting his work on Twitter, denigrating his research and engaging in highly damaging personal abuse, questioning his mental health and making malicious histrionic accusations.
Stewartson is well within his rights to contest this Twitter Trolling activity from his own blog, to call out the coordinated nature of the Trolling, and to call to account key identified individuals who are using anonymous Twitter accounts to engage in targeted highly personal abusive harrassment.
Stewartson’s response isn’t cyberstalking. That description is disingenuous projection. He is defending his reputation from malicious coordinated attacks.
Stewartson is a target of a sustained coordinated online attack to damage his reputation and to deplatform him due to his insightful original research, particularly on QAnon, the January 6 attack on the Capitol, and Flynn’s religious PsyOps campaigns.
The complaint against him made to (REDACTED) is in my view a continuation of the online harassment he has been subjected to over an extended period of time involving false accusations.
It is an indication of the effectiveness of Stewartson’s research that this “online army” as Flynn calls them would seek to limit broader dissemination of his work in the media.
The claims of Cyberstalking are entirely unsubstantiated. There have been no legal complaints.
They should be viewed in the context of a very high volume of coordinated sustained ongoing online attacks on his reputation. It is remarkable how persistent this has been.
These claims of Cyberstalking sent to (REDACTED) are in my view a further malicious attempt to deplatform Jim Stewartson and suppress the dissemination of his research, and particularly to limit the negative impact it has on Mike Flynn’s political interests.
Brent Allpress is a Melbourne-based academic and his OSInt research was featured in the documentary People You May Know, and revealed Cambridge Analytica and Gloo exploited mental health data for microtargeting. He has exposed clandestine Council for National Policy campaigns and uncovered StoptheSteal at its inception. In addition, he gave testimony to the January 6 Committee.
