The Biden administration’s latest effort in the so-called war against ‘disinformation’ has brought condemnation from people on all sides of the political spectrum.
The ‘Disinformation Governance Board’, which will work under the auspice of the Department of Homeland Security, should make anyone with even a passing knowledge of history furious – and so far, it has.
The Biden administration has once again managed to align staunch conservatives like Hollywood actor James Woods and true-blue progressives like journalist Glenn Greenwald, and moderates like former Democratic Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard and Twitter owner Elon Musk are standing in line, too.
This is messed up

Paging George Orwell
Anyone who has read the dystopian classic “1984” immediately recognized the similarities between Biden’s new ‘governance board’ and the Ministry of Truth.
To Orwell’s imagination, the future would bring an entire government department dedicated to feeding citizens lies, literally erasing the past (the good old “memory hole”), and making sure no mere citizen had the ability to contradict the State.

While the unfortunate souls who have lived in places like the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, Communist Cuba, Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge, and China are already fully aware that Orwell’s “1984” was not at all a work of fiction, many Americans have labored under the impression that it was.
Until recent years.
Tulsi Gabbard, the former Democratic Congresswoman from Hawaii who rose to popular fame after tangling with warmonger Hillary Clinton and bringing Kamala Harris down to size, went on Fox to put Biden’s monstrosity into context.
“This is the kind of thing that you see in dictatorships, this Ministry of Truth, this Department of Propaganda that the Biden administration has just stood up, and the reason why you see this in dictatorships is because they’re afraid of us.
“They’re afraid of the people, they’re afraid that we might actually think for ourselves.”
Slightly longer than Musk’s breakdown, but just two sentences that throw the shining disinfectant of sunlight at our overlords.
Every dictatorship has a propaganda arm—a “Ministry of Truth.” The Biden Administration has now formally joined the ranks of such dictatorships with their creation of the so-called “Disinformation Governance Board.” pic.twitter.com/iMnrqksaJJ

Actor James Woods, never one to mince words, shined the light on Big Sister herself.
Tucker Carlson blessed viewers with bizarre video of Nina Jankowicz, our new Czar of Truth, singing a show tune about her efforts to propagandize the populace.
WARNING: viewers should be advised that the video may cause them to jam q-tips into their brains or rip their eyeballs out:

Tom Fitton, the President of watchdog Judicial Watch, thinks that the timing of Biden’s announcement is no coincidence at all:
“Ministry of Truth” is trending because Biden admin appointed a radical leftist to run a censorship board in the Department of Homeland Security a few days after @ElonMusk purchase of @Twitter announced.

There are indeed those who believe that the best weapon against self-important elites is mockery, but Glenn Greenwald is here to say that it’s no laughing matter – considering that the regime puppets who have declared themselves to ministers of Truth have spent years (at least) foisting dangerous hoaxes on the American people.
If you spent the weeks before the 2020 election spreading and ratifying the CIA lie that the Biden family emails were “Russian disinformation,” and then never apologized or retracted it, you have *zero* credibility to lament “disinformation.”
You are a disinformation agent.

Your humble correspondent here is most concerned that the Ministry of Truth falls under the auspice of the Department of Homeland Security, rather than the FEC or some other department that actually deals with communications.
The Department of Homeland Security was created after 9/11 to deal with terrorism.
The reader can draw their own conclusion about how the Biden regime views anyone who doesn’t parrot the Approved Truths.
Still, there is some reason for optimism.
After all, we have Superman on our side.
