There's a lady in the Department of Homeland Security that now runs something called the "Disinformation Governance Board."
I assume her name is "Dolores Umbridge."
The Department of Homeland Security is setting up a new board designed to counter misinformation related to homeland security, with a focus specifically on Russia and irregular migration. The board will be called the "Disinformation Governance Board, and will be headed by executive director Nina Jankowicz.
Also known as Dolores Umbridge.
Seriously, it is not the government's job to determine truth. It is the government's job to protect the rights of its people, provide strong borders and defense for its people, and promote the values of its people. All under the explicit authority of the people.
When government starts determining truth claims, it becomes a religious entity. Change my mind.
Speaking with the House Appropriations DHS Subcommittee on Wednesday afternoon, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said, "Our Undersecretary for Policy, Rob Silvers is co-chair with our Principal Deputy General Counsel, Jennifer Gaskell, in leading a just recently constituted misinformation disinformation governance board. So we're bringing — the goal is to bring the resources of the department together to address this threat."
As for Umbridge, here's her resumé:
Jankowicz was previously a disinformation fellow at the Wilson Center, and had advised the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry as part of the Fulbright Public Policy Fellowship, according to Politico.
I wonder if she ever tried to get someone to say 2+2=5. Pretty sure that's a requirement to be hired as a "disinformation fellow."
Here's what Umbridge had to say:
Jankowicz has previously said that she was concerned that Twitter had determined early in 2022 to stop limiting speech from users about the 2020 presidential election, saying that "considering the long-term damage these lies do to our democracy," she was "dismayed about this decision."
And yet here she is before the 2020 election talking about how it's fair to question election results (when a Republican wins):
In case you need more evidence that this woman is a partisan agent looking to silence heretics to her leftist religion:
Jankowicz was an advisor to the government of Ukraine. She also stated her opinion that Hunter Biden's laptop, the contents of which were reported by the New York Post, was Russian disinformation. This was entirely false. Jankowicz will be leading the charge against misinformation, of which she believed the laptop actually was an example.
The corruption and ineptitude runs deep, my friends.
Meanwhile, some people whipped up this mock of the VERY STERN LETTER the GOP will probably send in response to this Orwellian overreach.
I'll leave you with this last spine-tingling tweet of hers.
