  • Shocking journalistic malpractice from major media organizations -- Journalists coordinate misleading language to intentionally misinform readers

    Washington Post: "hundreds of combatants — dozens of them seriously wounded — were evacuated from the complex Monday." Reuters: "The Ukrainian regiment at the steel plant said it was fulfilling orders to save the lives of troops by evacuating them." AFP: "Rescue mission under way at Azovstal as hundreds evacuated" All of these articles make it sound as if the people involved are being "rescued" by the Ukrainian military and taken to a neutral or safe location. Mission over, on to the next task for them. None of these articles use the words "surrender", "prisoner of war" or "detention" which...

    Many people have been at a loss as to why freedom-loving Americans, especially conservatives, are not fully on board with Ukraine. Can’t they see this for what it obviously is? – a clear-cut case of an aggressor, invading a sovereign country, without provocation? – a pure and simple case of good versus evil?Well,…After six years of nonstop hoaxes and hysteria;After six years of being cynically subjected to the politics of panic-porn, where everything is a potentially world-ending catastrophe, and one “unprecedented crisis” after another is breathlessly rolled out to keep people terrified and on edge;After two years of censorship, deception,...

    On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher criticized the Department of Homeland Security’s Disinformation Governance Board and argued that the agency’s definition of disinformation could be applied to former President Barack Obama’s promise that people who liked their doctor could keep it and wondered, “who do you think the truth czar is going to be in 2025?”

    Dictator Mary Poppins and head of the “Disinformation Governance Board,” Nina Jankowicz, has proven herself to be something of a nutcase and the more that comes out about her, the worse she looks.As posted by the Post Millennial, a clip of Jankowicz was released where she spoke about her power as a verified person on Twitter and how she should be able to use that as a way to edit the tweets of the non-verified peasantry.Jancowikz starts off by telling her fellows in a Zoom call she’s in that she’s verified and while others are verified they shouldn’t be, not...

    The nine most terrifying words in the English language, as President Ronald Reagan once quipped, are: “I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.” Yet the Biden administration may have found a more concise yet equally terrifying phrase: “We’re not the opinion police.” These words, spoken without jest, came from Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas in defense of his agency’s newest creation, the “Disinformation Governance Board.” When news of this broke, left and right were both quick to criticize, rightly pointing out free speech concerns. Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson rhetorically asked, “I can see how disinformation...

    In a newly released video clip, Biden disinformation czar Nina Jankowicz demands that “trustworthy verified people” like her be given the power to edit other people’s tweets, making Twitter more like Wikipedia.Yes, really. Asserting that she was “eligible for it because I’m verified,” Jankowicz then bemoaned the fact there are people on Twitter with different opinions to her who also have the blue tick but “shouldn’t be verified” because they’re “not trustworthy.” “So verified people can essentially start to edit Twitter the same sort of way that Wikipedia is so they can add context to certain tweets,” said Jankowicz. She...

    Zubu Brothers ^ | 5-11-2022 | Brandon Smith via Alt-Market.us,
    I think one of the most bizarre social developments of the past 10 years in the US has been the slow but steady shift of the political left as supposed defenders of free speech to enemies of free speech. The level of mental gymnastics on display by leftists to justify their attacks on freedom and the 1st Amendment is bewildering. So much so that I begin to question if liberals and leftists ever actually had any respect for 1st Amendment rights to begin with? Or, maybe the only freedom they cared about all along was the freedom to watch pornography…...

    PALM BEACH, FL—Former President Donald Trump has declared his very first move after victory in 2024 will be to make himself head of the new Disinformation Governance Board. "Nobody knows disinformation more than do, and we're gonna get rid of it," said Trump. "The moment our great nation finally gets rid of Sleepy Joe—who has done so many terrible things—your favorite President will get right to work getting rid of the FAKE NEWS. And with the power of the Disinformation Governance Board, I will make everyone tell the truth about a certain STOLEN ELECTION!" Sources close to Trump say there...

    PJ’s Rick Moran revealed recently that the chief of America’s new Thought Police, Disinformation Governance Board executive director Nina Jankowicz, brings a peculiar wealth of experience to her new job: she falsely claimed in 2017 that Republicans funded the notorious Steele Dossier that was a central element of the Russian Collusion hoax, and she insisted that Hunter Biden’s laptop was a “Trump campaign product.” So it’s clear: this is an individual who knows all about disinformation. She also brings a certain enthusiasm to her Disinformation Governance Board job, as is clear from a video Tucker Carlson broadcast Thursday, in which...

    After a brief show of treating illegal immigrants the same as Americans, the Biden Administration has abandoned its policy of mandatory covid vaccinations. "We tried telling them that they wouldn't be able to go anywhere in the United States without proof of vaccination, but the vast majority still refused to be injected," said a Border Patrol official. "The practical thing is we have no leverage over them. We can't threaten their jobs because they have no jobs. We can't threaten to send them back because the President doesn't want them sent back. All we can do is put them on...

    KVUE ^ | 5/05/22 | Travis Pittman, Amanda Seitz, Nomaan Merchant
    WASHINGTON - Attorneys general in 20 states have signed onto a letter asking the Biden administration to shut down a Disinformation Governance Board. The AGs say it's an infringement on free speech and could cause people to "self-censor" if they disagree with the government. The board, part of the Department of Homeland Security, was announced last week. But DHS has so far released few details on how the board will function and what powers it will have. "The existence of the Disinformation Governance Board will inevitably have a chilling effect on free speech," wrote Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares. "Americans...

    A member of President Joe Biden’s Orwellian Disinformation Governance Board has close ties to liberal billionaire activist George Soros. Disinformation Governance Board leader Jennifer Daskal has at least three connections to Soros. Daskal previously served as an Open Society Institute fellow “working on issues related to privacy and law enforcement access to data across borders.” Daskal also worked as as senior counterterrorism counsel for the anti-Semitic Human Rights Watch. HRW received at least $32,106,746 from Soros between 2000 and 2014 alone. Daskal was also founding editor of the Just Security blog. Soros’ Open Society Foundations gave $675,000 to Just Security...

    For decades, scholars on both sides of the issue have said Roe v Wade was wrongly decided by the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court is supposed to determine if laws are constitutional, and Roe v. Wade created law instead of interpreting law. Now that it looks as if the Supreme Court may correct the wrong, and send the issue back to the states or Congress, the media and other Democrats are having a collective cow and colluding to just make things up to scare the public. In other words, they are intentionally spreading misinformation to influence and interfere in the...

    Following the circulation of cringey videos and disproven tweets posted by Nina Jankowicz, the head of DHS' new "Disinformation Governance Board," a video of public remarks Jankowicz delivered in 2021 gives Americans another idea of what sort of speech Biden's so-called Minister of Truth may look to stifle when it comes to expression that's inconvenient for Democrats. In October, Jankowicz spoke at the City Club of Cleveland's annual meeting, delivering an address titled "Disinformation and Democracy: Civic Discourse in the Digital Age." How nice. During her remarks, Jankowicz outlined the supposed threat of disinformation — and she would know after...

    Kash Patel, a former top Trump administration official, told Breitbart News on Wednesday that a report claiming classified materials were found at Mar-a-Lago is misleading and that the documents were actually already declassified by then-President Donald Trump, but the classification markings had not been updated. “Trump declassified whole sets of materials in anticipation of leaving government that he thought the American public should have the right to read themselves,” Patel told Breitbart News in a phone interview. “The White House counsel failed to generate the paperwork to change the classification markings, but that doesn’t mean the information wasn’t declassified,” Patel...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci has warned the world is “still in the middle of a pandemic,” less than two weeks after stating the U.S. was “certainly … out of the pandemic phase.” “You said last week that we are out of the ‘acute component’ of the pandemic phase. In real terms, what does that mean for Americans?” Foreign Policy’s Ravi Agrawal asked, prompting Fauci to say that “we are still in the middle of a pandemic.”
