(NewsGlobal.com)- Representative Lauren Boebert has sponsored legislation that defunds Vice President Joe Biden’s Disinformation Governance Board, which detractors have labeled a “Ministry of Truth.”
The legislation would defund the board before even getting off the ground.
The Department of Homeland Security recently declared that the new unit will be primarily responsible for combating “misinformation connected to homeland security, with a particular emphasis on illegal migration and Russian Federation.”
In an interview with CNN on Sunday, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas stated that the board will not have operational power and will instead disseminate those best practices to the operators who have been executing and addressing this threat for years.
Many people recognized a clear connection between Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter and the formation of the new board of directors.
Rep. Boebert now wants to file legislation to defund the Department of Homeland Security’s misinformation board. This link will take you to the entire text of the bill.
Boebert said this kind of stuff makes her feel uncomfortable.
Boebert said that we, the members of Congress, control the purse strings. It is their responsibility to shut down this department as soon as possible. It is her sincere hope that the Republican leadership — including Leader McCarthy, Whip Scalise, and others — would support her request for this department to be closed down and defunded.
In addition, Boebert stated that no tax dollars should be spent where Biden can use the federal government’s power to silence truthful stories as Big Tech did with the Hunter Biden story.
Boebert compared Biden’s disinformation board to the Ministry of Truth in George Orwell’s novel 1984. Democrats interpreted that book not as a warning but as a playbook, Boebert concluded.
The Republican Congresswoman will now look for co-sponsors for the legislation, which she hopes to propose within a week of its introduction.
Boebert said it is truly a department of propaganda.
Boebert asked, “what constitutes truth and what does not?”
Nina Jankowicz, the lady chosen to lead the ‘Ministry of Truth’, expressed her disapproval of free speech by saying it makes her “shudder” while simultaneously propagating the myth that the Hunter Biden laptop story was the result of Russian propaganda.
She also referred to Christopher Steele as a “specialist in disinformation,” which was absurd. Steele was the author of the infamous Trump ‘peegate’ dossier, funded by the Clinton campaign and later revealed to be a fabrication based on disinformation.
Jankowicz had infamously said that the “free speech vs. censorship paradigm is a false dichotomy.”
