Joe Biden waved the white flag in this unthinkable surrender
Joe Biden’s losing streak continues.
Now one of the Democrats’ Midterm aces in the hole just went bust.
And Joe Biden waved the white flag in this unthinkable surrender.
Less than one month ago, the Biden administration announced the creation of the Government Disinformation Board – better known as the “Ministry of Truth.”
The board would police the internet for so-called “Russian disinformation” ahead of the Midterms.
Biden selecting “resistance” cartoon character Nina Jankowicz – who is a disinformation superspreader – tipped everyone off that the Ministry of Truth’s true goal was to suppress conservative speech ahead of the elections.
Jankowicz supported the debunked Steele dossier as being real, while claiming the accurate reporting from the New York Post about Hunter Biden’s laptop was disinformation.
After the Biden administration faced unrelenting criticism for weeks, it finally tapped out and shut down the Ministry of Truth.
The Washington Post reported:
Now, just three weeks after its announcement, the Disinformation Governance Board is being “paused,” according to multiple employees at DHS, capping a back-and-forth week of decisions that changed during the course of reporting of this story. On Monday, DHS decided to shut down the board, according to multiple people with knowledge of the situation. By Tuesday morning, Jankowicz had drafted a resignation letter in response to the board’s dissolution.
But Tuesday night, Jankowicz was pulled into an urgent call with DHS officials who gave her the choice to stay on, even as the department’s work was put on hold because of the backlash it faced, according to multiple people with knowledge of the call. Working groups within DHS focused on mis-, dis- and mal-information have been suspended. The board could still be shut down pending a review from the Homeland Security Advisory Council; Jankowicz is evaluating her position within the department.
Conservatives cheered the administration’s giving up on the Disinformation Board.
Shutting down the board came days after many in the media and elected office ramped up their calls to censor or even jail conservatives for questioning Joe Biden’s open borders agenda.
Polls show Democrats are on pace for a landslide defeat in November.
The last card in the Left’s deck was censoring the internet to control what information voters consumed ahead of the elections.
Tech companies pulled off this trick in 2020 by suppressing the New York Post’s reporting about Hunter Biden’s laptop.
But that trick just got much harder to pull off.
