The DISINFO Czar is Not the Issue

By Ray Cardello for May 3, 2022 Season 10 / Post 27
Over the last week, we have been caught up in the appointment of Nina Jankowicz as the person to head up the new Disinformation Governance Board created by the Biden Administration to be overseen by DHS. We have heard her sing ad nauseam and heard all about her beliefs that were found to be misinformation over the last few years.

Like all of Biden’s appointments in his administration, Jankowicz appears on paper to be absolutely incompetent for the job as it is designed. My position is I do not care who Biden would nominate or appoint to head a disinformation board. My position is that no such board should ever be formed. Period.

It is evident that this plan is a knee-jerk reaction to the Elon Musk purchase of Twitter and his commitment to return it to a Free Speech platform. The administration is paranoid about losing control of even one facet of the Internet or mainstream media. If they cannot control the content on Twitter, then they will need to counter it with their version of the story. The government has no place on either side of that equation.

I think we need to be attacking the Board and not be diverted by the individuals the Biden administration is using as smokescreens. Some say former President Obama alluded to such a board recently.

Former Hawaii congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard implied that former President Barack Obama devised the formation of President Biden’s recently announced Disinformation Governance Board, which critics have likened to the “Ministry of Truth” from George Orwell’s 1984.

“Biden is just a front man,” Gabbard tweeted Sunday. “Obama, April 21: social media censors ‘don’t go far enough,’ so the government needs to step in to do the job. Six days later, Homeland Security rolls out the ‘Ministry of Truth’ (aka Disinformation Governance Board).”

Gabbard’s tweet was about Obama’s speech at Stanford University last week. He declared that tech companies have an obligation to more strictly police disinformation and called for the government to facilitate that.

“Now the good news is that almost all the big tech platforms now acknowledge some responsibility for content on their platforms, and they’re investing in large team of people to monitor it,” Obama said during the speech. “Given the sheer volume of content, this strategy can feel like a game of Whack-A-Mole.”

So, the President who spied on Candidate Trump, President Trump, lied about the Russian Conspiracy, and Steele Dosier wants the government to have control of the content. The President, who had 50 of his top security officials deny the existence of the Hunter Biden Laptop, intends to have a singing Czar moderate the Internet. And Obama and Biden want the head of the DHS who has lied to Americans for fifteen months about the status of the border, has destroyed our sovereignty and made us a less safe country than we were under Trump overseeing this czar. No thanks.

The Board is not only un-American but unconstitutional. This is a direct violation of our First Amendment. And the amazing thing is that the same people who see Elon Musk and a Free Speech Twitter as a “threat to democracy” are okay with the government going George Orwell on us. The world is truly upside down, and we cannot allow the Biden administration to take another blow to America and the Constitution.
