How Censorship in the US Just Got Worse

Joe Biden is concerned he will be the big loser in the midterm elections if he does not do something drastic—and fast. The Biden administration has doled out $1 billion to media to promote the narrative that the COVID shots are safe and effective, and those same media are being paid to censor dissenting voices.

Another $500 million was spent on public relations for the COVID shot.

Biden's shot mandates and rising gas prices are not sitting well with most Americans. And as more information comes to light about ballot harvesting and invalid ballots, Biden wants to silence not only communication about COVID and the shot mandates but also about elections and much more.

Shortly after Barack Obama delivered a message at Stanford University on April 21, in which he said government should do more to censor social media to "save the democracy," Obama's wish became Biden's command.

Biden then rolled out his new "Disinformation Governance Board" that operates under the auspices of the Department of Homeland Security—the agency purportedly invented to protect America from terrorists. And their new target is not crazed jihadis, but everyday Americans.

Only dictators aim to silence political opposition. There is growing bipartisan opposition to the Disinformation Board. Send urgent faxes to Congress to demand an end to government censorship. We need to overwhelm Congress with your faxes to stop the DHS Disinformation Board immediately.

When President George W. Bush introduced the Department of Homeland Security in 2002, Americans were told the new agency would protect them from the jihadi warfare that attacked America just months before.

Fast-forward 20 years, and now this agency that was designed to protect us is being used by the Biden administration to silence us.

On April 27, 2022, the Biden administration announced the creation of a new DHS function: monitoring and correcting Americans' speech.

Biden's first pick to lead the Disinformation Governance Board was a hard leftist by the name of Nina Jankowicz. Her testimony before Congress in 2018 provides solid insight as to the administration's plans that even Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, likened to the "Ministry of Truth" in George Orwell's dystopian novel 1984.

In her testimony, Jankowicz told legislators that because social media companies have "nearly ubiquitous access to Americans' lives," those companies should "focus on practices that encourage behavior change."

Jankowicz praised one organization that had trained 15,000 people in "critical thinking, source evaluation and emotional manipulation." The training had successfully reprogrammed 29% of participants to rely on government-controlled "fact-checkers" (aka government censors) before sharing any news.

Jankowicz also wanted the U.S. Department of Education to use behavior manipulation techniques honed by intelligence agencies to manipulate the behavior of children in public schools. She hoped this brainwashing would last "for generations to come."

Massive public outcry forced Jankowicz to resign within weeks of leading Biden's propaganda and censorship machine. But the fact that this is the person he chose to launch his new Disinformation Governance Board shows exactly how Biden intends to use this new agency to silence you and me—while brainwashing our kids.

Jankowicz's resignation did not end this Disinformation Board. In fact, it made it worse and further tipped Biden's tyrannical hand.

Washington insider Michael Chertoff was quietly installed in Jankowicz's place. As co-author of the Patriot Act legislation, Chertoff knows a thing or two about destroying civil liberties.

In 2001, the Patriot Act was passed "for our own good" to "protect Americans" in the wake of 9/11. The Patriot Act includes provisions that allowed the U.S. government to hold persons in prison without charges, without an attorney and indefinitely, so long as the person in question was "suspected" of being a terrorist or having terrorist associations.

Many warned this legislation would one day be used to rob Americans of their rights. Proponents defended Chertoff's legislation, insisting such claims were wild disinformation. Liberty was traded for false security; it would just take a while for the effects to be evident.

Exactly 20 years after the Patriot Act passed, scores of peace-loving Americans have been sitting in a Washington, D.C., jail on what is now known as "Patriot Row"—where grandmothers and others are being held without trial and on suspicion alone.

And now the man who wrote the Constitution-defying "indefinite detention" provisions into law has been put in charge of your news, your information and your speech.

America is not a dystopian society controlled by tyrannical maniacs—at least not yet. But I am concerned that we are close, and it will soon be so if we do not demand our elected leaders in Congress do what we pay them to do—defend the Constitution and our rights.

A bill has been announced in the U.S. House that will strip all funding from the Disinformation Governance Board. Free speech should never be threatened by a government deciding what you can hear, say or write.

We are working with members of Congress to push back, but they also need to hear from you.
