By now we’ve all heard it.
“During a House Appropriations Subcommittee hearing on DHS’s budget Wed. afternoon, Mayorkas said, “Our Undersecretary for Policy, Rob Silvers is co-chair with our Principal Deputy General Counsel, Jennifer Gaskell, in leading a just recently constituted misinformation disinformation governance board.”

Most are calling the board the “Ministry of Truth” citing Orwell’s classic 1984. Many, myself included are beginning to view Orwell’s book as more prophecy than fiction. Scripturally speaking, for a biblical prophet to be considered a true prophet, he had to be 100% accurate. Anything less was false. Talk about your rigid standards. It makes me wonder what the standard for “information” might be.
As Tucker Carlson pointed out last night (Thursday), Mayorkas did not deign to define how “misinformation or disinformation” is defined and who might be charged with defining it.
As for myself, I question by what authority Mr. Mayorkas or his purported boss, Joey Biden this board was “constituted”. I see the entire concept completely devoid of any reason, real or imagined, to exist. That said, let’s explore the idea for a bit.
As Carlson mentioned, defining “misinformation” or “disinformation is a bit of a challenge. Actually defining such is so much of an issue as much as who will determine what falls into the category. For the moment, lets take a look at some definitions.

Interesting. Note they both state the terms refer to false information intended to deceive or mislead. The word “disinformation” specifically cites government propaganda. Hmmm. Now THAT’S enlightening. What government organization (s) have Mayorkas and company set their sights on? Are federal, state or local governments the target? Who else do they want to look at. HEY! Alejandro! Yeah YOU! Dude. I can help you here.
Why don’t you start with politicians Al? Now I know your instinct is to head straight for anyone with an (R) after their name and title but really, why not start with the big mess? Come on Al, don’t pretend you don’t know who I mean. I’m talking about the (D)s. Want me to name them? Tell you what, I’ll toss out a last name only and you come up with the first name… okay? Biden, Harris, Pelosi, Schumer, Merrick, Mayorkas. Yeah. YOU! Can you remember way, way, waaaay back to Wednesday? When you testified, TESTIFIED UNDER OATH
“We inherited a broken and dismantled system that is already under strain. It is not built to manage the current levels and types of migratory flows. Only Congress can fix this,” Mayorkas said at the Appropriations subcommittee hearing.
Really? Do you sincerely want to go there? Shall we compare your numbers with those of your predecessor? You know the truth but you dare not speak it. So tell me… how do you propose to penalize disseminators of “disinformation”? Huh?
Don’t ask for my opinion because I’ll tell you, in detail, what a disgrace you and your cohorts are. You should be forcibly removed from office, banned from ever stepping into any position of public trust and stripped of any and all benefits, but only after due process has been served.
Have you or your cohorts even given a thought to due process concerning the political prisoners from January 6? I would not stoop to your level by denying what you have denied these citizens, but the damage to our nation, as evidenced by the results of your mismanagement, either by design or by incompetence is far greater than any of the damage done on January 6 – and I include those whom I suspect were acting on behalf of one three-letter agency or another, if not Nancy Pelosi and company herself.
Like I said, pal, you do NOT want to go there. My advice is you should quietly drop this idea. Just let it go. Even better, simply resign. It would be the one single best thing you could likely manage to do as I doubt you have the cojones to admit your wrongs.
Now get out of my face.
