The handlers of Old Joe Biden have not been able to give us an accurate answer as to what the Department of Homeland Security’s new Disinformation Governance Board will do. Nina Jankowicz (the censorship power-drunk chief of the Department of Homeland Security) has now provided a detailed description of what authority she would like to have to combat this alleged disinformation. It’s quite chilling.
The Disinformation Board’s powers have not been able yet to clarify exactly what “disinformation” they would be fighting. Politico first reported the existence of the Board. It stated that it would “counter misinformation related to homeland security,” with a particular focus on irregular migration and Russia. Then Alejandro Mayorkas, DHS Secretary, said that it would “combat this menace not only to electoral security but also to our homeland security.” Mayorkas then claimed that the Board would not deal with statements made by American citizens.
Jankowicz appears to have other ideas. Jankowicz speaks to nine people in a video posted Tuesday. Seven of them are visible while two of them have their cameras off. The disinformation czarina talked about how Leftists need to micromanage Twitter to counter hate speech.

Jankowicz drops a bomb on Twitter verification. Jankowicz says, “Um, and because I’m verified I’m eligible for it, but there are many people who shouldn’t have to be verified who aren’t, you know? legit, in my opinion, I mean they are real people, but they’re also not trustworthy, um, trustworthy.” Twitter verification was created as a way for people to distinguish themselves from impersonators. The Leftists running Twitter have muddied the waters by removing verification badges from some users (the blue checkmark) and denying it to certain popular accounts that are accused of dissidents. Jankowicz now wants to elevate the blue checkmark’s status as a badge of honor and deny it to anyone she finds not trustworthy. It is not clear why we should believe her judgment.
Jankowicz said, “Anyway so, so verified people could, um, edit Twitter the, the same kind of way Wikipedia is so that they can add context for certain tweets.” So, let’s say that President Trump was still on Twitter and that he tweeted about voter fraud. Someone could add context from one of the sixty lawsuits that were filed or something that an election official from one state said.
“Not from any political perspective.”
It is not clear when the panel discussion was recorded. In the lead-up to 2020, Twitter began to add fussy notes to dissident tweets to enforce the Leftist narrative. Jankowicz seems to want to do it better by empowering certain people (chiefly her, no doubt) with the ability to harass dissidents (especially Trump, if Twitter fascists haven’t already shunted him from the platform) with their harassing context every time they step outside of the line.
This is what the Disinformation Governance Board will do. Are prominent dissidents going to be given censors by individual censors? Some are more strict than others, in the same vein as gulag prison guards. Or will it be a collective effort? If the efforts to stop the flagrantly unconstitutional Board from getting started to fail, then it will be time for the jury.
It will be fascinating to see how these efforts turn out. Will there be any Democrats or Democrats who are willing to defend the First Amendment? Will Liz Cheney and Mitt Romney explain to us that this freedom of speech is not a priority and we must accept the corrections of our moral superiors as well as the guardians of acceptable opinions? Protestors will surround Supreme Court Justices’ homes, trying to intimidate them into voting against America as a free country.
Patriots must now stand for freedom at all costs. It will be fascinating to see who does and who doesn’t.
