The disinformation board, the newest waste of taxpayer money, is being led by Nina Jankowicz who’s against free speech while pushing information later found to be false and misleading.
On Wednesday, Politico first reported the DHS was establishing an office, called the Disinformation Governance Board. Politico reported the new board will focus specifically on misinformation and disinformation about “irregular migration and Russia.”
— DHS is standing up a new Disinformation Governance Board to coordinate countering misinformation related to homeland security, focused specifically on irregular migration and Russia. Nina Jankowicz will head the board as executive director. She previously was a disinformation fellow at the Wilson Center, advised the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry as part of the Fulbright Public Policy Fellowship and oversaw Russia and Belarus programs at the National Democratic Institute.
Jankowicz confirmed the report via a tweet.
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas did not disclose any powers that would be granted to the dystopian-sounding board while addressing lawmakers on Wednesday. He explained that the board would work to tackle disinformation ahead of the November midterms, particularly in Hispanic communities.
But Mayorkas did say that the new board would come under the Biden-era Center for Prevention Programs and Partnerships, meaning it would have no powers to crack down on disinformation and will instead try to combat it by throwing money at what it sees as problems.
She has gone so far to spread her own brand of misinformation that she took to singing on Twitter.
That’s not the only instance of her cringe-worthy singing. She also made up a song about who she would have to f*ck in order to become famous.
So who did she f*ck?
This disinformation czar has also called the Hunter laptop a “Trump campaign product” despite the fact it has been declared all true.
Former State Department spokesperson Ortagus said she does not believe the board would hold up in court under the authority of the Department of Homeland Security, which was created after 9/11 to centralize national security operations and protect from international threats.
Jankowicz spoke with NPR last week and questioned Musk’s purchase of the platform, “I shudder to think about if free speech absolutists were taking over more platforms, what that would look like for the marginalized communities.”
Isn’t it interesting that just days after Musk’s buyout of Twitter the Ministry of Truth, errr Disinformation Board, is announced?
“The libs spent the last weeks planting the seeds for the backup plan in case the Twitter deal actually happened,” Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert tweeted. “Today’s news of a Biden-backed “Disinformation Governance Board” is dystopian. They can’t afford to let the truth be anything but what they say.”
“Rather than police our border, Homeland Security has decided to make policing Americans’ speech its top priority,” Republican Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri tweeted. “They’re creating a Disinformation Board. No, really. And take a look at the views of the leftist radical running it.”
In August 2020, Jankowicz tweeted about the former British spy’s appearance on the Infotagion podcast, writing: “Listened to this last night – Chris Steele (yes THAT Chris Steele) provides some great historical context about the evolution of disinfo. Worth a listen.”
Yes, the Christopher Steele who is responsible for the ‘Steele Dossier is her idea of great historical context. For those unaware Steele’s Dossier was found to be fake.
It was found that the FBI lied about the credibility of Christopher Steele, a key source in the agency’s application to spy on a Trump campaign associate beginning in fall 2016. The report says the justification for spying on Carter Page, a U.S. citizen, was “based on significant omissions and inaccurate information in the initial and renewal FISA applications.”
There is a 400-page Inspector General report that shows that the FBI team in charge of the investigation, known as Crossfire Hurricane, relied entirely on information from Steele, a former British intelligence agent and author of the discredited, Democratic National Committee-funded dossier alleging collusion between Trump and Russia. Steele’s dossier claimed, among other things, that Page was an intermediary between Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and the Russian government, and that Page secretly met with Russian officials in Moscow to discuss obtaining derogatory information about Hillary Clinton.
It was all a lie. The disinformation board czar was again pushing misinformation.
Of course, when Jen Psaki was questioned about prior statements made by Jankowicz and how the administration can “assuage concerns” over her appointment to lead the effort fairly, Psaki responded, “It sounds like the objective of the board is to prevent disinformation and misinformation from traveling around the country in a range of communities. I’m not sure who opposes that effort.”
This might be the biggest mistake to come out of the White House yet. The government will do anything they can to silence those with dissenting views and opinions including hiring someone who is spreading actual misinformation.
Big brother is watching.
