Of course, DHS is at least smart enough not to call it the ‘Ministry of Truth’. Instead, it is the Disinformation Governance Board. You have to watch this, particularly the information about the head of this new ‘board’ – Nina Jankowicz.
As Tucker points out, how are they getting away with this, considering that the 1st Amendment to the Constitution is still (ostensibly) in place? Just to review, this is what it says:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
I am certain that those who wrote these words didn’t anticipate that petty government bureaucrats would take the law into their own hands, bypassing Congress and the American people, at the behest of their political bedfellows.
Further, this is what the New York Post is reporting about the new head of the DGB (so close to the KGB):
President Biden’s pick to lead his Department of Homeland Security’s Big Brother-like Disinformation Governance Board has her own history of posting disinformation online.
Nina Jankowicz, who was a disinformation fellow at the Wilson Center, has repeatedly cast doubt on The Post’s reporting about Hunter Biden’s laptop.
During a series of live tweets during the presidential debate between Biden and Donald Trump in October 2020, Jankowicz had referenced the laptop.
“Back on the ‘laptop from hell,’ apparently—Biden notes 50 former natsec officials and 5 former CIA heads that believe the laptop is a Russian influence op,” Jankowicz tweeted.
“Trump says ‘Russia, Russia, Russia,’” she added.

Jankowicz tried to brush off the controversy surrounding her old laptop tweet, saying: “For those who believe this tweet is a key to all my views, it is simply a direct quote from both candidates during the final presidential debate. If you look at my timeline, you will see I was livetweeting that evening.”
But the Russian misinformation expert had told the Associated Press just a week earlier that there was doubt the laptop even belonged to Hunter and there were multiple red flags that emails uncovered from the device were legit.
“We should view it as a Trump campaign product,” Jankowicz said at the time.
Leaving no doubt that Nina Jankowicz isn’t a seeker of truth – she’s just another political operative. Besides being either ignorant – or ignoring – the Constitution.
