The Biden administration is finally being called out for its radicalism.
Joe Biden is not behaving like the moderate Democrats promised.
Now, a Biden stooge has some explaining to do about one nightmarish project.
Joe Biden’s Ministry of Truth crashed and burned before it could be fully implemented.
The administration was forced to scuttle the Disinformation Governance Board (DGB) amid a deluge of criticism even from some people on the Left.
The DGB—under the purview of the Department of Homeland Security—purportedly was created to combat disinformation spread by drug cartels, but people on the Right were instantly skeptical.
Republicans saw it as a clear attempt to censor any speech that countered the establishment narrative.
And one leaked document suggests that Republican fears were not unfounded.
Now, Senate Republicans want to question DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
Breitbart reported that the leaked document revealed “ The disinformation board was conceived to monitor public speech surrounding ‘conspiracy theories about the validity of elections’ and ‘disinformation related to the origins of effects of COVID-19 vaccines or the efficacy of masks.’  DHS planned to partner with Twitter to suppress disfavored speech and planned a meeting with Twitter executives to explore the concept.  The Disinformation board charter was drafted in January 2022 and signed by Mayorkas in February 2022.  Although Mayorkas asserted that the board had not begun its official work, a planned meeting with social media executives was staffed by Nina Jankowicz, the chair of the disinformation board.  DHS officials appeared to have drafted a ‘Rumor Control Program of the Department of Homeland Security to Counter Misinformation, Disinformation, and Misinformation,’ which included a public website titled ‘Rumor Control.’”
In other words, the DGB was created to censor people who questioned elections or the COVID narrative.
Of course, it’s perfectly fine for Democrats to question the 2000, 2004, and 2016 presidential elections as well as the 2018 Georgia and Florida gubernatorial races.
Rand Paul, Josh Hawley, and other Senate Republicans wrote in a letter, “We are deeply concerned that documents recently obtained by Senators Josh Hawley and Chuck Grassley contradict the Secretary’s testimony and public statements about the Board. The American public deserves transparency and honest answers to important questions about the true nature and purpose of the Disinformation Governance Board and it is clear that Secretary Mayorkas has not provided them—to the public or this Committee…We are also troubled that Secretary Mayorkas failed to provide these documents to the Committee. But for the actions of a whistleblower, it is unlikely any of this information would have come to light.”
The Democrats attempted to silence dissent with an authoritarian executive branch creation, and they got caught doing it.
But this won’t be the last time Democrats try to pull a stunt like this.
