Good morning, kids. The weekend is here and I want to continue to focus on this hideous DHS “Disinformation Governance Board.” A totalitarian Ministry of Truth by any other name would still stink to high heaven. Can someone please remind me again what country this is, or more accurately what country this is supposed to be? Considering everything we have lived through going back into the Obama eight-year reign of error and perhaps as far back as 9/11 – the cultural and political (and the cultural is political) dissolution and degradation of our society – you become almost numb to the ice pick rammed in your eye after an almost constant pounding with brass knuckles and tire irons. Almost.
The newly formed panel will target supposed misinformation aimed at key points of vulnerability for Biden and Democrats such as southern border migrants, as well as monitor and prepare for Russian disinformation threats as this year’s midterm elections near, the DHS said.
“The spread of disinformation can affect border security, Americans’ safety during disasters, and public trust in our democratic institutions,” the department said in a statement.
DHS said that the board will “protect privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties” as part of its duties. . .
. . . “We know that there has been a range of disinformation out there about a range of topics — I mean, including COVID, for example, and also elections and eligibility,” Psaki said. “But I will check and see if there’s more specifics.”
The backlash over the creation of the board came as the Biden administration also unveiled an international “Declaration for the Future of the Internet” with 50 other countries on Thursday that endorsed efforts to also curb online “disinformation” and “harassment.”
The document outlines ideas for “reclaiming the promise of the Internet” and US officials described it as an effort to counter the practices of countries including China and Russia.
It notably doesn’t mention domestic US struggles over internet freedom, such as politically motivated censorship of news stories by private companies and alleged illegal government mass surveillance. . .
. . . The vague document doesn’t describe a specific remedy for disinformation, but does call for governments to “[f]oster greater exposure to diverse cultural and multilingual content, information, and news online.”
I seem to remember, in the wake of 9/11/01 something called FISA; super-secret courts that went after terrorists on our own soil who posed a threat to our precious democracy (*vomit*). Interesting how since then, we’ve had Nidal Hassan, Omar Mateen, Fahreed Skyhook and his concubine and at least a dozen or so other attacks as well as plots that were only foiled by sheer dumb luck. “Lone wolves,” they declared while neglecting to mention the common denominator. Meanwhile, this same FISA court was a co-conspirator in the FBI/DOJ enacted and Hillary/Obama concocted plot to sabotage the 2016 Trump campaign via spying and phony evidence manufacturing.
And the FISA courts are still there having been renewed by Congress to stay vigilant and stop the threats to our precious democracy (*vomit*).
The Biden Justice Department is finally acknowledging the war on cops: FBI Director Christopher Wray denounced the 59% increase in cop murders in 2021.
An officer is murdered nearly once every five days, yet violence against law enforcement “doesn’t get enough attention,” Wray said Sunday on CBS’s “60 Minutes.”
That is an understatement. Wray’s bosses — Attorney General Merrick Garland and President Joe Biden — have instead focused almost exclusively on alleged white-supremacist criminality, which they claim is the biggest domestic threat facing the country today.
That charge is preposterous. It is violent street crime — drive-by shootings, sadistic robberies, carjackings — that has been destroying lives at an increasing rate since the George Floyd race riots. White-supremacist violence played no role in the record-breaking 29% national homicide increase in 2020 or in the ongoing crime surge since then.
As startling as that 2020 homicide increase was, cop murders rose at twice that rate in 2021. A significant portion of those fatalities were ambushes, which were up 91% by mid-2021. Through April 26 of this year, gun murders of cops are up another 13% over the same period in 2021. Shootings of officers, lethal and nonlethal, were up 43% by early April.
These cop killings emerge from a national rhetoric of cop hatred and racial animosity. The Floyd riots and their long aftermath featured the graffiti tag ACAB (All Cops Are Bastards) sprayed across public buildings from New York City to Seattle.
Emphasis mine in Heather Mac Donald’s essay. “White supremacists,” as well as insurrectionists. Let me state this as clearly as I can: There is no mass white supremacist movement in this country. Period, full stop. The Burning, Looting and Murdering that swept the nation in 2020 had one purpose; gin up hatred against President Trump and sow such civil unrest that he would be driven from office and the MAGA movement discredited. And that civil unrest culminated on January 6th, where the violence at the Capitol was planned and carried out by the FBI/DOJ, Capitol Police and cadres from the ranks of BLM and Antifa.
At the risk of going off on a tangent, the estimable Julie Kelly takes us inside to the well of the Senate itself.
McConnell, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser—the three leaders responsible for protecting the Capitol on January 6—still have not explained their failure to do so. Not only did McConnell’s top law enforcement officials purportedly overlook the potential for violence on January 6, he denied requests for more officers days before and delayed sending guardsmen to Capitol Hill that afternoon.
And it will be nearly impossible to find out why: Stegner, along with Irving and Sund, all resigned on January 7, 2021.
So, perhaps there is a darker explanation for McConnell’s giddiness on January 6. What unfolded that day on McConnell’s watch ended Republican demands for an election audit; criminalized criticism of the 2020 election, which McConnell still describes as “fair” and legitimate; vilified Republican lawmakers; and prompted Trump’s second impeachment. McConnell also believed the protest would spell the end of the Trump movement, something the Beltway crony long attempted to quash.
Like the Biden regime, congressional Democrats, and the national news media, the aftermath of the Capitol protest achieved all sorts of political ends for Mitch McConnell.
And when it comes to January 6, there are no coincidences.
Emphasis mine. Now we understand why this Ministry of Truth suddenly pops up, especially close on the heels of Elon Musk’s move to buy up Twitter. It’s apparent that with everything the Left and the Democrat Party do, it’s planned out well in advance. You don’t suddenly pull a multi-thousand page bill out of a desk drawer like Obamacare the same way Gomez Addams pulls out stacks of hundreds. This Ministry of Truth had to have been planned out months if not years ago. The Musk move on Twitter, as well as the impending disaster this coming November and probably a bigger one two years from now, cannot be allowed to happen. That is, assuming America such as it is has not been reduced to rubble by then. So, voila! A government agency to make sure you get the truth – good and hard.
So, we have this “Disinformation Governance Board.” What statutory, regulatory or even prosecutorial power does it have? Is the dissemination of what it and it alone deems “disinformation” deemed to be a criminal offense? Piss-Hockey herself babbled about Chinese COVID and the elections. If I question vaccines and masks, if I question the legitimacy of 2020, if I object to the catamitization of our children, do I get sent to the Garland Archipelago? Are GOP candidates like Marjorie Taylor Greene, Matt Gaetz and Donald Trump barred from running for office? Hell, does the GOP itself (my hatred of it notwithstanding) become designated a “white supremacist terrorist organization” and outlawed?
If you think that those questions are tinfoil hat nuttery, I remind you that had you predicted the coming of such as thing as this “Disinformation Governance Board” even two years ago, you’d have been laughed out of the room.
And yet here we are in the here and now.
Have a good weekend.
