Kennedy Hammered Mayorkas On Disinfo Board Scam
It's a dangerous time when the government steps in to define reality which is exactly what Biden's administration is proposing. LA Senator John Kennedy wasn't buying that Disinformation Governance Board (DGB) would be bipartisan and fair and hammered into DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas . “The government’s gonna tell us what’s true – what could possibly go wrong?” Sen. Kennedy asked Sec. Mayorkas during a Senate hearing.
Mayorkas offered a mechanical reply, “That is quite incorrect. That is quite incorrect."
Later, Mayorkas called Kennedy’s characterization of the Disinformation Governance Boards as the Truth Police a “misstatement” and “the farthest thing from the truth”:
“Senator, it is so very important that I correct a misstatement that you made that the Department of Homeland Security is going to be the Truth Police.
”That is the farthest thing from the truth.”
“We address disinformation when it threatens the security of the homeland,” Sec. Mayorkas claimed.
Under Mayorkas, the DHS has declared climate change a threat. "The climate crisis poses a significant threat to both DHS operations and the American people," DHS says in a webpage dedicated to the topic.
During the hearing, Sec. Mayorkas repeatedly refused to directly answer Sen. Kennedy’s questions.
Sen. Kennedy asked if the DGB would investigate things like former President Barack Obama’s infamous claim that, under Obamacare, “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor,” or former President Bill Clinton’s claim that he did not have sex with then-intern Monica Lewinsky – or if the DGB will be given its own police or its own enforcement authority.
Instead of answering yes or no, Sec. Mayorkas simply repeated his claim that the DGB “does not have operational authority or capability,” but merely combats information the government considers a threat to national security.

Biden’s new disinformation czar dismissed the parents angry about critical race theory being taught to their kids as disinformers “weaponizing” the issue “for profit.”
Nina Jankowicz, the controversial pick for Homeland Security’s Orwellian “Disinformation Governance Board,” brushed off concerns when asked about the divisive race-focused teaching philosophy while speaking in Ohio in October.
She also pushed to discredit the Hunter Biden laptop story, labeling the now confirmed laptop, as 'disinformation.
