Democrats are extremely worried about the Midterm elections.
But that was a given after seeing how quickly and sneakily Biden’s Deep State Democrats tried to set up their so-called “Disinformation Governance Board” to censor conservatives online.
And the more that we learn about this left-wing propaganda operation the angrier Americans should and will become.
Homeland Security’s hidden agenda
The public outrage at the creation of this real life Ministry of Truth was so severe that it caused the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to pause the project and its pro-censorship leader, Nina Jankowicz, to resign.
And while Biden and the DHS may have hoped that would be enough to make the public move on from the subject, more and more details about the Disinformation Governance Board keep coming to light.
Internal documents, obtained by a whistleblower and given to Senate Republicans, “illustrate how the DGB was designed to exert a powerful influence over the government’s efforts to crack down on disinformation in areas where there are ‘clear, objective facts.’”
These documents detailed that the Biden administration would not only use their Ministry of Truth to combat foreign disinformation but also silence debate on domestic issues.
But what’s even more disturbing about these revelations is the fact that they directly contradict previous statements made by DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
When asked by a “journalist” if American citizens would be monitored by the DGB, Sec. Mayorkas went on the record saying, “No . . . We at the Department of Homeland Security don’t monitor American citizens.”
However, that wasn’t the only thing that Secretary Mayorkas appears to have been lying about.
On May 4, Sec. Mayorkas testified before the Senate that the Disinformation Governance Board, “has not yet begun its work.”
And yet, these leaked documents show that the DGB was established on February 24, 2022 and in its charter, which was signed by Secretary Mayorkas, required these Deep State Democrats to meet “regularly” and “no less than once per quarter.”
The Democrats’ dilemma
Ordinarily, Republican and Democrat Senators don’t like being lied to, especially by bureaucrats, but this is an election year.
And with Democrats in control of the Senate, they are the only ones that can call for a committee hearing.
So now the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Sen. Gary Peters (D-MI) has a dilemma.
Sen. Peters can either allow Republicans to continue controlling the narrative around Biden’s Ministry of Truth, since they are the ones in possession of these documents, and hope this scandal goes away or he can hold a hearing, as his Republican colleagues are requesting, and risk making this scandal even worse for the Biden administration.
No matter what Senator Peters inevitably decides, this does not look good for Joe Biden, the Department of Homeland Security, or the Democrats.
But regardless of the optics, the American people should be outraged that our government lied to us about using our tax dollars to create tools to be used against us.
Whether or not anyone will ever be held accountable for this Orwellian operation remains to be seen.
But hopefully it is a scandal that people will remember in November.
