In today’s episode, I try to get us caught up on some other news developments overshadowed by the SCOTUS leak and the left-wing vitriol choking the news cycle. While we have been watching the Roe v. Wade debate, the Secretary for the Department of Homeland Security was getting grilled over his new Ministry of Truth, which they call the Disinformation Governance Board.
Rand Paul had a brilliant assault on the stupidity of such a board. After going back and forth, it became obvious Alejandro Mayorkas has no idea what disinformation is or that his newly crowned Director of the Board is guilty of spreading vast amounts of it. Senator Paul reminds him of just how much disinformation the US itself has spread over the last 50 years and it is only through discussion and debate do you ferret out the truth.
Similarly, Senator Josh Hawley ripped Mayorkas up one side and down the other for not knowing anything of Nina Jankowicz background nor how she was hired. So, when pressed further, Hawley demands copies of meeting minutes and notes from the board to which the DHS Secretary tried to say there were none. But, that flies in the face of a tweet Jankowicz herself put out last week when she said she’s been working on the board for a couple of months.
The crazy part of the whole discussion still revolves around “what is disinformation?” And, as if to illustrate the stupidity of trying to install guard rails and policies, Twitter goes all-in with a beautiful example of it’s flawed censorship. The FDA just put out a statement that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine should no longer be given unless a patient has medical issues for not using the mRNA vaccines. It’s an actual press release from the FDA. However, when some new media agencies linked that story out on their feeds, those tweets were immediately given the FACT-CHECK FALSE label and wording from Twitter stating, “Misleading – Learn why health officials consider COVID-19 vaccines safe for most people.” It’s stunning to see what we have allowed to happen right before our very eyes. We do not need a Ministry of Truth.
We do no need to curtail the Freedom of Speech. We need more speech, not less. Those who fight against free speech are showing you their hand. They want control and dominance, not an open a fair playing field.
Finally, we get to the doxxing of the home addresses of Justices on the Supreme Court and how the White House won’t even condemn that. The far left activist group, Ruth Sent Us, is now paying protesters to actively harass and intimidate Justices at their homes, which is a violation of the law.
With each passing day, the midterms draw near. I feel like I say this a lot, but I think it should be said a lot. Elections matter and those who we send need to be thoroughly vetted. We need to be sure elected officials understand they are their to represent the will of the people and the uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. We do not need those who want to fundamentally transform this nation.
