U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has quietly
set up a Disinformation Governance Board to oversee what
information is and isn't "truthful"
Heading up this new "Ministry of Truth" is Nina
Jankowicz, a "Russian disinformation expert" who in her
spare time sings show tunes about disinformation and
erotic Harry Potter songs on TikTok
Jankowicz is herself known for spreading disinformation.
She called the Hunter Biden laptop story a "fairytale"
and "Russian disinformation," and she's openly opposed
to free speech and anti-censorship efforts
her book, "How to Lose the Information War," Jankowicz
criticized Poland's efforts to eliminate censorship of
conservatives on social networks, and called for the
U.S. government to regulate and conduct oversight of
people who disagree with the Democratic party on Twitter
Every dictatorship and autocracy has had a ministry of
truth, a department of propaganda, and Biden has now
joined them. May 1, 2022, GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert

the Disinformation Governance Board
By now, you've probably heard that the U.S. Department of Homeland
Security (DHS) has created a Disinformation Governance Board to
oversee what information is and isn't "truthful." 1
This includes information
relating to elections. 2
It's so incredibly Orwellian,
you'd think it was pure fiction, yet here we are.
This "Ministry of Truth" will reportedly operate under and receive
funding from the Center for Prevention Programs and Partnerships
(CP3), created by President Biden to "curb radicalization in the
It appears those in the
Biden administration must have thought "1984"
was an instruction manual rather than a warning.
Disinformation Spreader Made Head of Truth Ministry
Heading up this new "Ministry of Truth" is
Nina Jankowicz, 4
a "Russian disinformation expert" who in her spare time makes a fool
of herself singing made-up show tunes about disinformation and
erotic Harry Potter songs 5 on TikTok...
As noted by both Fox News anchor
Tucker Carlson and Jimmy Dore of
"The Jimmy Dore Show"
in the video far below,
Jankowicz is qualified to
do absolutely nothing...
Independent journalist Glen Greenwald also
highlighted Jankowicz's obvious lack of real credentials in a May 4,
2022, Substack article: 6
"The concept of 'anti-disinformation expert' is itself completely
This is not a real expertise but rather a concocted
title bestowed on propagandists to make them appear more scholarly
and apolitical than they are ...
There is no conceivable circumstance in which a domestic law
enforcement agency like DHS should be claiming the power to decree
truth and falsity... The purpose of Homeland Security agents is to
propagandize and deceive, not enlighten and inform.
of historical ignorance and stupidity required to believe that
U.S. Security State operatives are earnestly devoted to exposing
and decreeing truth is off the charts...
That nobody should
want the U.S. Government let alone Homeland Security arrogating unto
itself the power to declare truth and falsity seems self-evident."
Surprisingly enough, even mainstream news outlets have pointed out
Jankowicz's role in the spreading of disinformation and outright
For example, as reported by the
British Daily Mail: 7
"The Russia disinformation expert previously called the laptop of
President Joe Biden's son Hunter a 'Trump campaign product.'
causing questions over Jankowicz's ability to accurately judge
disinformation now that several sources have come out confirming
validity of Hunter's laptop...
When stories about
Hunter Biden's laptop started emerging, several
outlets, social media sites and left-leaning disinformation experts
claimed that it was just misinformation coming from Trump and others
on the right.
In an October 2020 report, Jankowicz shared her skepticism of the
contents of the laptop and the claims it belonged to Hunter.
should view it as a Trump campaign product,' she told the New York
Daily News at the time.
Twitter repeatedly took down the Hunter
Biden laptop story and prevented it from being spread on the
In one October 2020 tweet, she referred to the Hunter Biden laptop
story as a "fairytale." 8
Jankowicz was also among those
who insisted Trump had colluded with Russia to win the presidency in
2016, a claim we now know is patently false.
In reality, it was
Hillary Clinton and allies who colluded to fabricate this false
narrative and derail
Trump's presidency. 9
Over the past couple years, we've repeatedly seen how information
censored on the grounds that it was "misinformation" turned out to
be factual and true.
In early 2020, YouTube
betrayed its founding
principles and started censoring and banning anything that
contradicted the World Health Organization's stance on
Yet, time and again,
the WHO turned out to be wrong. 10
No organization is infallible, and,
the WHO has a long history of
corruption that makes its ability to discern what's best for public
health all the more suspect...
Twitter followed suit, axing health
experts, scientists and respected journalists like,
Martin Kulldorf, Jay Bhattacharya, Dr. Robert Malone,
...and many more. 11
Hostile Stand Against First Amendment Rights
Jankowicz has also publicly opposed the First Amendment of the U.S.
Constitution, saying free speech is bad for "marginalized
Shortly after Elon Musk announced his
takeover of Twitter, she told NPR: 12
"I shudder to think about if free speech absolutists were taking
over more platforms, what that would look like for the marginalized
We need the platforms to do more, and we frankly need law
enforcement and our legislatures to do more as well... the U.K. has
an online safety bill that's being considered right now where
they're trying to make illegal this currently, quote, 'awful but
lawful content' that exists online where people are being harassed."
Lack of censorship on social media will make abuse against
marginalized groups worse, she claims.
At the same time, she insists
that "a HUGE focus" of the new disinformation board will be
"protecting free speech, privacy, civil rights and civil liberties."
In her book,
'How to Lose the Information War,'
Jankowicz called on
the U.S. government
to regulate and conduct oversight
of people who
the Democratic party on Twitter...
That's likely why she
was selected to head up Biden's 'Ministry of Truth' in the first
This is clearly Orwellian doublespeak, where what's being said is
the complete opposite of reality.
How can you have a board dedicated
to dictating "truth," which means censoring "untruth," while
simultaneously protecting free speech?
Either all viewpoints are
allowed, or only one viewpoint is permitted, and if only one
viewpoint is tolerated, then there's clearly no free speech.
In her book, "How to Lose the Information War," she also criticized
Poland's efforts to eliminate rampant online censorship of
conservatives on social networks by forming a Ministry of Digital
In other words, she wants conservative views to be censored, not
just in the U.S., but everywhere. In that book, she also called on
the U.S. government to regulate and conduct oversight of people who
disagree with the Democratic party on Twitter.
As noted by Carlson,
that's likely why she was selected in the first place.
Not surprisingly, then, Jankowicz has expressed "dismay" at Musk's
decision to no longer censor posts discussing potential fraud in the
2020 election. 14
Interestingly, in a September 2020
she defined the term "color revolution" and "why the U.S.
isn't a candidate for one." 15
In it, she noted that,
"Believe it or not, sometimes people get fed
up with having their voices silenced for decades," but she then
insisted that a color revolution isn't possible in the U.S. because
"we are not an autocracy," and color revolutions only occur in
oppressive autocracy regimes.
Given an Inch,
They'll Take a Mile
Others disagree with that assessment...
As noted by former
Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (video above),
every dictatorship and
autocracy has had a ministry of truth, a department of propaganda...
And Biden just joined them.
Gabbard also accurately points out that the government has been
working with media and Big Tech to censor for some time already.
We've become increasingly aware of this covert backdoor influence
over the past two years.
Now, however, they're formalizing that
influence, which is, by the way, completely unconstitutional.
Moreover, the scary truth here is that the terms "misinformation"
and "disinformation" could cover absolutely anything.
As noted by
Carlson in the featured
far below video, the DHS has not actually defined or
given any clues as to what mis- or disinformation actually is.
"Would you declare war on a country you couldn't name?" Carlson
asks. "Would you sentence someone to death for a crime you couldn't
Of course you wouldn't, not if you were a sane and decent
Because you can't have justice without precise definitions
But they're not defining the core concept, the heart of what is
effectively a new law enforcement agency. Maybe that is because
[U.S. secretary of homeland security, Alejandro] Mayorkas doesn't
want justice, and neither does the president he serves.
And to get power, they plan to control what you think."
Carlson points out that the DHS has now publicly admitted they
intend to punish people for merely thinking "the wrong way," even if
they've committed no actual crime worthy of judicial intervention.
In short, anyone who disagrees with the Biden administration is now
an enemy of the state.
As noted by Carlson:
"You can't make any of this up. It's too grotesque. Would you
believe a novel with this plot? No, you wouldn't, but it's
happening, and that's the bad news.
The good news is, everyone
involved in Joe Biden's Ministry of Information is a buffoon. They
may be evil, but they're also ridiculous."
He then airs one of Jankowicz's undignified
TikTok videos, where
she's singing about disinformation.
"This is now one of our top law
enforcement officials," he dryly notes.
Jankowicz has also,
ironically, accused Republicans of dealing in "highly emotional
rhetoric," which proves nothing except the fact that she's read
George Orwell's "1984" more than once.
In fact, Democrats accuse their opponents of doing exactly what they
themselves are doing so regularly, you can be near-assured that any
accusation is a veiled admission at this point. And, in his report,
Carlson reviews how Jankowicz is guilty of this exact behavior.
Carlson also points out that her falsehoods have by no means been
Her disinformation helped presidential candidate Biden to lie about
an incredibly important story - Hunter's laptop - that could have
altered the outcome of the presidential election, had it been up for
Jankowicz has never apologized for dismissing
what was in fact truthful, and neither has anyone else who insisted
the laptop was "Russian disinformation."
International Coordination Effort to Censor Free Speech
Now, some have pointed out that this Disinformation Governance Board
didn't come into existence until Musk bought Twitter, promising to
turn it into a free speech platform. 16,17
evidence strongly indicates there's international coordination
In mid-April 2022, the European Union approved new rules aimed at
policing Big Tech platforms.
As reported by the Financial Times:
"The EU will force Big Tech companies to police content online more
aggressively after approving a major piece of legislation that sets
the rules for the first time on how companies should keep users safe
on the internet...
Leading tech groups will be forced to disclose to EU regulators how
they are tackling disinformation and war propaganda in order to curb
the spread of fake information - an effort that has gained fresh
momentum since the Russian invasion
Countries such as
the U.S., Canada and Singapore are expected to follow with similar
rules in the coming months."
Some of the language used to describe this EU legislation sounds
good - for example, it will ban the targeting of internet users
based on personal information such as gender, religion and sexual
preferences, and terms and conditions must be clearly understandable
even to children.
However, there are also many reasons to suspect that these
regulations will end up serving as a springboard for
Among them is the fact that the EU
is supporting the proposal to make the WHO into a global health
authority, and the WHO, in turn, is setting up its own censorship
A key player in that network is NewsGuard, 19
entered into a partnership with the WHO in August 2020...
As reported by Carlson,
NewsGuard has also received funding from the
U.S. Pentagon to blacklist any site that publishes "misinformation"
about the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
Time to Draw a
Line in the Sand
Clearly, the shocking censorship we experienced during the COVID
pandemic was only the beginning.
It's going to include all kinds of
information. The creation of a DHS Disinformation Governance Board
is truly a watershed moment in history, and we cannot allow it to
As noted by Carlson in the featured
below video at the bottom of this
"Just to be clear, this is a nightmare unfolding in slow motion. But
this is the point where we're just going to have to draw the line.
No, Joe Biden, you cannot have a federally funded ministry of truth.
And no, Nina Jankowicz can't run it. Period. It's not your country... and you don't get to do this to a free people.
May 1, 2022, GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert introduced a bill to
immediately defund and terminate the Disinformation Governance
In an interview with Fox News, Boebert said: 21
"This kind of stuff is terrifying. We in Congress have the power of
It is our duty to shut down this department immediately.
I'm calling on leadership in the Republican Party - Leader McCarthy,
Whip Scalise, and others - to join me in calling for this department
to be shut down and defunded.
No tax dollars should go to where Biden can use the power of the
federal government to silence truthful stories like Big Tech did
with the Hunter Biden story.
Democrats took [Orwell's book '1984']
not as a warning, but as a guide.
This is really a department of propaganda.
To say that the federal
department has a say in what's right and what's wrong, what's truth
and what's not - this is a very dangerous place that we've come to."
Tucker - This the
point where we have to draw the line
