The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.”
Days after Elon Musk secured his bid to procure Twitter, the Biden Administration announced plans to create a ‘Disinformation Governance Board’ under the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to combat “misinformation.” The timing has been a cause for concern to conservatives, although the move is unsurprising. As of this writing, #MinistryOfTruth is trending on Twitter.
The Ministry of Truth is a concept from George Orwell’s novel, 1984. It is a misnomer, in that it does not elicit truth but propagates lies for the benefit of the “Party.” The Ministry of Truth is that arbitrary, bureaucratic Orwellian nightmare of 1984. Its purpose is not to tell the truth, but to erase truth, falsify history, and create Party hegemony. This is, in effect, the strategy of the Democratic Party and their global accomplices.
It explains why there has been such fierce backlash from the political establishmentarians and their herd against the common man who has come to see through their manipulative games. The manipulation of truth is the purpose of Biden’s new Disinformation Governance Board. It is not to counter misinformation, but to spew their own as “objectivity,” as “fact”, as “truth.” It is nothing more than propaganda.
But how do we know this without appearing with partisan objectives ourselves? We merely retain the liberal skepticism that is vital for any healthy society, or for the “democracy” we often hear is at risk.
The Disinformation Governance Board is being set up under the DHS with the purpose to counter misinformation that is a threat to the U.S.’s homeland security. While the specific focus is reportedly on Russia and irregular migration, the board will be headed by executive director Nina Jankowicz.
A series of tweets that she has made expressly shows her political agenda; consequently suggesting how the board will be governed. From her views on the Hunter Biden laptop story, to freedom of speech being considered “white and male” to her views on criticizing Vice President Kamala Harris.
Jankowicz was previously a “disinformation fellow” at the Wilson Center and an advisor to the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry as part of the Fulbright Public Policy Fellowship. She also oversaw Russia and Belarus programs at the National Democratic Institute, according to Politico.

In a series of tweets by Jack Posobiec of Human Events Daily, we learned that Jankowicz believes that elections “aren’t an end point,” they are an “inflection point” and social media policies need to reflect that.
In a tweet, Jankowicz also discredited the Hunter Biden laptop story, originally reported by the New York Post. She maintained that the story was Russian disinformation.
Her views on free speech are also a partisan reflection of her political leaning. In one tweet she calls the “free speech vs censorship framing a false dichotomy.” She also criticized former President Trump for not disavowing “disinformation and conspiracy theories.”
In another tweet, she responds to a Trump tweet implying that “freedom of speech is only if you’re white and male and Trump’s distinct brand of republican.”
In another tweet dating back to February 2021, Jankowicz called hersef the “Mary Poppins of disinformation” and performed a song where she sings to the tune of “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious”:
“Information laundering is really quite ferocious. It’s when a huckster takes some lies and makes them sound precocious by saying them in Congress or a mainstream outlet, so disinformation’s origins are slightly less atrocious.”
Last year, referencing a piece Jankowicz wrote in WIRED, she tweeted “Platforms and governments aren’t doing enough,” she wrote on social media. “It’s time to act. Our national security and democracy are at stake.” Again with the “democracy.”
“Congress should reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and include provisions against online gender-based harassment,” Jankowicz wrote in the WIRED article claiming that there are “widespread campaigns [that] represent just a sliver of the abuse that women in public life deal with on a daily basis in the internet era.”
