Open Letter to Caitlin Johnstone

Published by Steve De'ak on

Dear Caitlin Johnstone,

I recently read your article entitled “Why I don’t talk more about 9/11”.  I quickly had to Google you because, being an independent 9/11 researcher for the last decade or so, I had never heard of you.  I don’t get out much, and don’t have much free time, but what little time I do have is often spent researching, writing about, and making videos about 9/11.  According to Wikipedia you, Ms. Johnstone, are the self-published author of “Woke,” a book I haven’t read (yet).  You describe yourself as a “Rogue Journalist,” among other things.  Rogue Journalist.  Forgive me but that’s a laugh.

Any rogue journalist worth her salt would have seen through the disinformation of the 9/11 truth movement ten years ago.  You admit you don’t know exactly what happened on 9/11.  You then accuse anyone who claims to know with absolute certainty exactly what happened on 9/11 as being “fulla shit.”   Well duh.  The same can be said about anyone who claims to know with absolute certainty exactly what happened at any historic event.  Everyone knows that.  Babies know it.  My dog knows.  I’ll bet all life forms are conceived with a BS meter that trips one of those Star-Trek alarms, or maybe cramps and bad smells, as soon as someone claims to know anything with exact and absolute certainty.  You, Catlin, are the mistress of understatement.  

You point to James Corbett’s humorous video which highlights all the well-known 9/11 tidbits that anyone who ever scratched the surface of the official story is already familiar with.  But really, a 9-year old video is the pinnacle of 9/11 Trutherdom?   That stings.  I guess I should just take down my shingle and go home.  Apparently all we have to do is agree that the official story is a bunch of bunk and our work is done.  Scholars the world over will be so relieved to know they needn’t bother studying what actually happened (the truth), because all that matters is what didn’t happen (the official story).  You write:

“Corbett made this video eight years ago on the tenth anniversary of 9/11, and to this day I believe it’s the strongest and most irrefutable case against the official narrative.”

You are confusing the act of refuting the official narrative with “the truth.”   Most rank and file Truthers also make this mistake.  But you’d think a Journalist would know better.  I’m guessing you’re a Rogue Journalist in the same way Christopher Bollyn is a Well-Traveled one.  You go on to say that you’re giving up on hacking at the root of the problem, deciding instead to hack at the branches.  The reasons for your change of heart (don’t say apathy), are twofold:

“Firstly, the narrative control battle has already been decisively won by the other side. The mainstream understanding is that anyone who talks about what really happened on 9/11 is a crazy crackpot who must not be listened to, because the establishment narrative control campaign to discredit and demonize critical thinking on the subject succeeded many years ago. If today’s ubiquitous internet access had happened to coincide with 9/11 and the grassroots push to find out the truth behind it, that narrative control would have been far more difficult if not impossible for the establishment to shore up. But the timing didn’t work out that way, and now the narrative is fully locked down except in the margins of discourse which have no effect on the mainstream.”

Aw, shucks.  Don’t want to be looking crazy to the rest of the world or anything.  Can’t sell any books that way, eh?  I thought Aussie’s were supposed to be all “Crocodile Dundee” and shit, or is that only in the movies?  In real life they sell out and follow the crowd just like everyone else. 

I don’t blame you for not having the patience and dedication to wade through 18 years of the lies and disinformation belched out by the truth movement, the media and the governments of all nations, but don’t throw under the bus those of us who have dedicated their lives to setting the story straight.  9/11 Truth isn’t dead by any means.   What’s dead is your interest in the truth.  Instead of bemoaning that the government has already won the war for our hearts and minds, you could use your position as a journalist to shed a little limelight on those of us who haven’t given up.

Corbett’s video is only 5 minutes long.   Perfect for those with short attention spans, but short on details, and only leaves the viewer with more questions.  It is very effective at demonstrating how silly the official story sounds, but that’s all it does.  It doesn’t attempt to use what facts we do have to explain what happened. 

Moving on to your second reason for giving up the ghost:

“ Secondly, even if there were some way to show everyone in the western world the truth of what happened on 9/11, the establishment propaganda machine would immediately narrative manage the problem away. The operation would be blamed on rogue actors, maybe a few powerful establishment loyalists would face consequences (though probably not) and be replaced with other establishment loyalists, and then the imperial propaganda machine would pace everyone into an understanding of why it’s still right and necessary to support the US-centralized empire and its globe-sprawling war machine. The status quo would march on essentially undisturbed. This is one hundred percent guaranteed as long as the empire still has a functioning propaganda engine.”

So your solution is to play into their hands by not talking about 9/11?  Wow.  How Rogue of you. Don’t take us down with you, okay?

Seven Years ago the 9/11 Crash Test Project was introduced to the 9/11 Truth Movement. 

In the spirit of the “Mythbusters” show, the idea is to mount a real section of wing from a 767 on a rocket sled, and collide it at 550+ MPH with steel box columns built to the same specifications of the World Trade Center, at the point of impact.  My colleagues and I are attempting to prove, or disprove, a hypothesis, something no other truth group dares to attempt.  By using physics, and empirical experimentation, we can prove the jet impacts were faked by the media, but proving what didn’t happen is only part of the project; if we ever do manage to get rocket-sled test center time, we will also attempt to prove what did happen.  We will do this by using the photographic evidence we all have at our disposal, to recreate the damage as found.

A genuine forensic investigation begins with examining the evidence at the crime scene, but this is evidence the truth movement won’t touch.  Obviously, if the popular groups are under control, then logically the truth will be found where they fear to tread; the impact holes at all three 9/11 sites.  Identify how they were cut, and you will identify the most likely suspects.

9/11 Crash Test proposes diverting a tiny portion of the millions of dollars the American truth groups accept annually, to prove once and for all, whether or not what we were shown on television depicted a real event.  For a fraction of what AE911T collects every year, we could eliminate the “no planes” contention altogether, and in the process, eliminate a major hurdle in uniting the opposition under one banner.  Seizing this opportunity would demonstrate to the world that the disparate 9/11 Truth Groups can work together to apply the scientific method to solve problems, which would instantly change the public impression of the movement from one of tinfoil-hat wearing nutters, to one of serious peace activists capable of challenging the status quo.  Personally, I can think of no greater problem that needs solving than 9/11’s endless War on Terror.

9/11 Crash Test is just one example of an idea that can stop the impasse, and inertia, of the 9/11 Truth Movement.  I’m sure there are other ideas.  The truth movement you’re familiar with continues to sign the same petitions and follow the same leaders in circles. A clear sign of madness.   Something needs to change, granted, but please don’t throw out the baby with the bathwater.  9/11 Truth is still alive and well, but we’re called “historians” now.  Our jobs would be easier without dissing from Rogue Journalists.

The crash test is a good idea Steve, we need to see it get done. Most people need “a working persons knowledge” of 911, they dont need to be 911 scholars or historians just yet. The will come about all by itself one day.
Caitlin is on of the best ambassadors for cause, and its not easy….as you know…. to make other minds aware of the plan fact that 911 was an inside job.
I am glad she is on the team and brings a valuable skill set to the debate and the cause.

Welcome Caitlin, and thank you for your support.

nb. My site is temporarily down because of security certificate problems…I have also just finished a lengthy relocation. Actually WW2 was shorter than the relocation process but we got there, that is the important bit. My site should be back on line soon and things should be high on the agenda soon.

Great article Steve!
I should like to share an opinion with you from a musical perspective. You may have read a recent article by Henry Makow. In it he analyzed the subliminal message within the Hollywood musical movie “Chicago”. The movie is essentially about the corruption within the modern day legal system – a thing Dr. Fetzer knows a thing or two about with his Sandy Hook court case going to appeal. Henry Makow says that the film “Chicago” indicates the extent to which corruption has taken hold of society where “anything goes” – a ‘do what thou wilt’ society if you will. Such a society has its brotherhood secret societies – the sort JFK warned us about. They are cabbalah freemasons who teach the philosophy that there is no absolute truth – such as that which is found in the Holy Quran. But rather their ‘truth’ is relative and subjective. Einstein says time is relative because he doesn’t understand the Islamic concept of predestination. The Holy Quran made many accurate historical predictions – such as the prophecy at the time of the prophet that the Romans would win in battle in the “lowest land”. Also the Quran tells of the moon being ‘split’ in the End Times. Many Muslims now understand this to mean the Lobate Scarps formed on the moon as it ages. So there is absolute truth in the Holy Quran no matter how much unbelievers detest it. Many journalist shy away from such truth, for the comfort of wilful ignorance, or cognitive dissonance, for the simple reason that 9/11 truth exposes the extent of racism in society. It was easier for white America to blame the so-called “sand nigga” than face the truth of the Big Lie 9/11 false-flag event. In the comedy movie “Undercover Brother” we see how freemasons seek to recruit the black guy to their doublethink mindset. The funk soul brother is tricked into worshiping the fallen demon Lucifer and his ’88’ time is relative bullcrap. He thinks by joining the brotherhood he will be fighting against “The Man”. But ‘the man’ is just Satan playing both sides like puppets on a string. If my blog was not censored and taken down I would go into detail about this movie and it’s symbolism. Dave Chappelle was always a sell-out, he came back from Africa to work for ‘the man’ because he said:” Integrity can’t feed my family” – like what most people falsely believe these days, hence the reason why 9/11 truth is forsaken by them.

But YOU should never give up, never surrender! And sing: “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine…” God bless.

truthermusical · December 18, 2019 at 5:13 am

Steve, you write: “You then accuse anyone who claims to know with absolute certainty exactly what happened on 9/11 as being “fulla shit.”
The lady is just a product of western education. She has been conditioned since birth to believe that there is no absolute truth and so nothing can be certain. Our Almighty Creator, with Grace and Mercy has sent the final revelation in the Holy Quran. We have been given a guide. We are told to believe in predestination, so therefore our understanding of the concept of ‘time’ needs to be reassessed in light of scripture. Even scientists at CERN are now saying that Einstein’s theory of relativity is incorrect. Until such time as people decide to revert back to faith – the REAL Islam, and not the pale imitation of it that we have today, then everything will be misunderstood. Do you believe time-travel is possible? Can we go back and forth in time in our physical bodies to undo any evil done in the past? Muslims believe that when evildoers die they will have no light to guide the way to heaven. Such people then ask those with light to give them some – to share their light. But the believers reply to them “go back and get a light”. Some Muslims say that this may indicate reincarnation back into this world is possible, others say that it is merely a sarcastic expression, as they are reminding the unbelievers of the finality of their situation, perhaps because they falsely believed in being able to go back in time – as portrayed in the movie “Interstellar”, when NASA tries to send astronauts back in time through a cosmic black-hole, so that they can undo the damage that was done to Earth. I guess there are no second chances in the hereafter, and so this life is make or break for one’s soul, and so our decision to follow “the straight path” in this world will determine the extent that we are saved in the hereafter. So be serious, and not like the funk soul brother James Brown screeching “can I go back” with his songs and moonwalking dance moves!

I’ll give a clue as to not arouse suspicion of being some sort of shill or controlled opposition. Frankly it’s sad you need this advice “steve”. Don’t attack others, respectfully disagree. “Rogue Journalist. Forgive me but that’s a laugh.” That makes you sound like an asshole with an agenda. This type of line would aqlmost make me think you’re a shill., spreaing disinfo. Especially since your own websites are so lacking in substantiation. All She said is why she didn’t talk about 9/11. For some reason you choose to attack her. Quite telling. BTW, Your website is hilarious. Conjecture much? Stop smelling your own asshole. If you can.

    Steve De'ak · January 8, 2020 at 4:07 pm

    So sayeth some asshole that doesn’t have the courage to sign their own name. Quite telling, indeed.

Jason · June 1, 2020 at 6:43 am

Hello, I’m wondering why not much is said about building 6. Then about wind speed. Tornadoes max out at 300. Planes were said to be doing 525. Also, why were not blueprints looked at? They called for 150 kt mini nukes planted 70 meters under the foundations. THATS WHY THE AREA WAS CALLED GROUND ZERO. I got tons more stuff you dont go over or just dont know about.

Jason · June 1, 2020 at 2:55 pm

Steve, thank you for responding, I will check out the links, thanks.

Jason · June 1, 2020 at 3:04 pm

I’m getting the idea you do not think nukes exist?

    Steve De'ak · June 1, 2020 at 3:16 pm

    I have little reason to believe anything that gives our “masters” absolute power over we little people. This same game has been played on us since the dawn of so-called civilization.

Jason · June 1, 2020 at 4:37 pm

Ok, you are way out dated. Time to update bud. We got nukes. They got nukes. All countries have them. It’s just who’s got the balls to push the first button. We dropped 2 nukes on Japan after they hit pearl harbor. Just go there and see the aftermath if you can handle it. We were wrong for doing it. Directed energy was the cause of the California wild fires. If you dont believe in directed energy, you can throw out your microwave oven. It depends on directed energy to work.

    Steve De'ak · June 3, 2020 at 7:08 am


    If you want to believe our masters have fantastical weapons that can turn cities into dust, that’s up to you. If you are interested in the truth, I suggest starting with researching propaganda.


Jason · June 3, 2020 at 9:05 am

Thanks for responding Steve. It appears you do believe in controlled demolition which is what put building 7 into the ground. I concur. Is there any way to have a debate sometime? I want to get deeper into your perspectives.

    Steve De'ak · June 3, 2020 at 11:06 am

    It isn’t about belief, Jason. It is about following the evidence where it leads, despite one’s beliefs. If you’d like to debate the evidence, make sure it is a video debate, please. Rollie Quaid might be able to host it.


frontncenter · July 27, 2020 at 8:02 pm

I’m not following…is someone an advocate for the official story? Because that would be embarrassing as hell. I can’t imagine a grown ass person believing that stupid idiotic nonsense. I mean who the hell do they think they’re talking to? Trying to tell a grown ass man that a kerosene roof fire weakened enough steel to collapse a sky scraper at free fall within an hour. WTC has had 15 major fires. In 1975, the 10th through 19th floor was on fire for 3 hours. A building cannot collapse unless it’s base is damaged and a roof fire cannot weaken the steel at the bottom. I mean how stupid are we supposed to be?

What really pisses me off is how obvious the shit is. Body parts were found 1400 god damn feet away. That’s 4 fuc*ing football fields. And people are gonna claim that was because of a gravitational collapse? Get the fu*k outta here with that nonsense. Cars were torched up to 6 blocks away. Why in the hell would even 1 car catch fire , let alone hundreds 6 blocks (over 5 football fields) away… all because a building fell down? Who the hell do these people think they’re talking to? Cars don’t catch fire because buildings collapse. What damn part of that is rocket science? Who can’t understand that?

Nothing should have caught fire after the buildings blew apart. NOTHING! WHY? Because 500,000 tons of pulverized steel and concrete is the biggest fire extinguisher on the planet. And the only fires were at the tops of the buildings. As soon it blew into pulverized dust, those fires should have been out. But they didn’t go out. They burned for 3 months. And people are gonna pretend that’s normal just to protect their own bias opinions? WTF planet is this? Are you kidding me right now?

Here’s a fun project… Look up all 4 flights on flightaware or any other flight tracking site. You’ll see flight 93 landed in Washington DC on September 11, 2001 at 10:30 am. It isn’t a mistake. It’s the same damn flight that left NJ at 8:30am. The airlines weren’t in on it. They reported what they were supposed to. All four flights were still in service. Look it up. That’s the problem with people. Nobody bothers to look at common sense shit.

chepup63 · November 7, 2021 at 8:35 pm

This is only my opinion based on reading various articles written by Caitlan and observing her reactions to be questioned or called out on issues…she’s sponsored for sure. I think her role is to attract smart, thinking people who are beginning to red pill and to lead them back to their programmed position that lies within the establishment narrative.

Her formula goes like this – “we all know how screwed up everything is, like you I was tempted to look inside theory X, but seriously those people are whacked out loons. Extreme example 1, 2 and 3. Could it be true? Maybe, I’d need more evidence. Until then I’m avoiding even going there.”

During Trump years she was trying to associate Trump with eGOP & Bush, which she knows is a line young democrat leaning folk won’t cross, even if red pilled. The association was a crock, but effective in keeping a certain band of people well away from Trump.

Steve De'ak · March 1, 2022 at 3:57 pm

Yeah, she reminds me of Bono, Assange, and Snowden.
