As one of the Democrat Party’s top hatchet men for decades, Attorney General Merrick Garland has had his hands in the dirt cleaning up scandals and smearing and intimidating conservatives going back to at least the Oklahoma City bombing.
So his ears perked up when these Republicans exposed a big Democrat donor and disgraced ex-Enron executive.
And Garland just lit a new target for his weaponized goons at the FBI after this ex-Enron executive’s secret got exposed.
The latest tool of the elites is to censor speech by claiming to fight “misinformation” and “disinformation.”
Misinformation is the unintentional spreading of fake news, while disinformation is the intentional spreading of fake news.
The biggest purveyors of misinformation and disinformation are the corporate-controlled press and the federal government. Of course, that’s not who leftists have a problem with.
The censors are going after people with heterodox opinions whether online or in-person, like when Attorney General Merrick Garland put parents under FBI surveillance who had the gall to show up at their children’s school board meetings to oppose left-wing indoctrination.
And it’s not just the weaponization of government agencies and media. The Left’s web of shadow groups harassing, intimidating and silencing conservatives online is heavily funded.
But now Republicans in Texas are taking the first steps to combat it—following the money.
And it’s led them to a former Enron executive who is among those funding the Left’s massive censorship efforts.
Texas Republicans call out ex-Enron exec’s financial ties to censorship campaign
The Washington Examiner reported that Texas Republican Rep. Troy Nehls (R-TX), is among a group of Lone Star State lawmakers calling out ex-Enron executive and billionaire John Arnold and his company Arnold Ventures LLC for giving over $13.7 million to organizations targeting conservatives with campaigns purported to fight “disinformation” and “misinformation.”
“This is another example of the dark money ecosystem pushing its own interpretation of disinformation,” said Rep. Troy Nehls (R-TX), whose district, according to the Washington Examiner, covers the Houston area that was home to Enron.
Enron was the company at the center of a massive accounting and fraud scandal that fleeced tens of billions of dollars from its shareholders before going bankrupt in 2001 after its fraud and corruption was exposed.
Labeling things as misinformation and disinformation became a go-to tactic used by left-wing officials during recent years to paint the target for censorship by their partners in Silicon Valley and the media.
But as the last three years of COVID proved, it’s the people in charge who were spewing obscene amounts of misinformation.
For example, Dr. Anthony Fauci said that masks were not necessary.
He later said that was a lie to ensure that frontline workers got first dibs on masks.
Meanwhile, Fauci emailed a friend and told her that she did not need to wear a mask on a plane because it provided little to no benefit.
There is no way to parse Fauci’s words without concluding that he spread misinformation and/or disinformation, simply by contradicting himself.
That’s one of many issues that arose out of the so-called war against disinformation.
Congressman Nehls added, “These groups will never stop funneling money to attack Republicans until they fully control the narrative.”
That’s the name of the game, which is why Donald Trump and other people on the Right were booted off of Twitter prior to Elon Musk taking over the company.
The Examiner added that “Arnold Ventures has also supported the American Journalism Project, which funds local news outlets and is partnered with the Racial Equity in Journalism Fund. In May, the journalism fund hosted an event that explored how right-wing ‘misinformation’ can lead to ‘death and abuse.’”
This is just more evidence showing just how far the people in power are willing to go in order to silence dissent.
