    The woman President Joe Biden chose to be the government-sanctioned arbiter of truth believes “there are many non-binary people who give birth” — despite the basic fact that pregnancy is biologically unique to women. The Biden administration appointed Nina Jankowicz as chief of the “Disinformation Governance Board,” which the Department of Homeland Security is setting up to combat “misinformation” online. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas spoke about the “just established” governance board during a congressional hearing Wednesday, arguing it would help reduce domestic threats to the United States. Jankowicz, who is a so-called “disinformation expert” and a fellow for the...

    President Joe Biden’s new disinformation chief Nina Jankowicz used TikTok to imitate her male trolls. In a video created on January 25, Jankowicz dressed up and imitated two of her online male critics. Jankowicz made her TikTok video account private after it was featured on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show Thursday night, but some videos still exist on her Twitter account. “Women should not be involved in government. They can not be trusted,” she said as she wore a hat and looked into the camera, speaking in a male tone. “The real reason she is angry is no Chads would...

    After Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas revealed his department's creation of a Disinformation Governance Board aimed at combating misinformation, Republican lawmakers were all over the announcement, accusing the Department of Homeland Security of going too far. Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, joined the chorus of critics Thursday when he confronted Mayorkas face to face during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on oversight of DHS. "Mr. Secretary, yesterday you announced the formation of Disinformation Governance Board at DHS. You put out a bulletin two months ago, a big fancy bulletin here, red, white and blue. You said that misleading narratives, mis-, dis-,...

    National Guardsmen just completed a two-week training exercise which saw them respond to a simulated cyberattack that took out critical utilities across the United States. The exercises have become an annual event, but this year took on even more significance after coming on the heels of several major ransomware and cyber attacks that crippled large parts of American infrastructure in recent months. The exercises were part of the seventh Cyber Yankee, an training event that brings together guardsmen from throughout the New England region to test their responses against simulated cyberattacks. This year’s exercises simulated a cyber attack that targeted...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A congressional panel has been asked to postpone a closed door deposition with a former Department of Homeland Security (DHS) intelligence chief because of delays in obtaining access to classified records and approval of security clearances for his lawyers. But Adam Schiff, the Democrat who chairs the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee, said on Friday his panel was "rejecting the Department’s attempt to limit the scope of its investigation" into the DHS intelligence office, which would-be witness Brian Murphy formerly headed. Murphy said in a whistleblower complaint on Sept. 8 that President Donald Trump's acting DHS chief...
  • Parade panic in NJ: the terrorists have succeeded in scaring public officials, if not the public

    09/13/2019 10:17:36 AM PDT · by Coleus · 15 replies
    After the 9/11 attacks, we began to hear that cliche about how “the terrorists will have won” if we let ourselves become so consumed with fear that we no longer act rationally. Well, the future is now. That’s my reaction to that decision to cancel the annual Labor Day parade in South Plainfield because a guy left some fireworks in a bar in Sea Bright. When I got an email from the Governor’s Office Monday morning saying this year’s parade had been canceled, I figured it might be because of the weather. -snip- Nope. It soon turned out that the...

    Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Wednesday defended President Trump's assessment that the situation at the southern border constitutes a national emergency, telling lawmakers that an extended influx in migrants could "overwhelm" the immigration system. Nielsen testified before the House Committee on Homeland Security that illegal immigration "is spiraling out of control and threatening public safety and national security." Democrats pressed her on whether the situation genuinely required Trump's emergency declaration, which the House voted to overturn last week. "Although we may disagree on solutions, I hope there can be a consensus that the current system isn’t working and that...

    (National Sentinel) Denied: Homeland Security chief Kirstjen Nelsen said during an interview on Sunday that the migrant caravan traipsing towards the United States will “not get in” so they may as well turn around. Reports over the weekend noted that about 1,700 mostly Central American migrants accepted an offer of asylum from Mexico. But thousands more refused, saying they want to be in the U.S. But that’s not going to happen, Nelson said. “There a legal way to get into this country. Those who choose to enter illegally will be stopped,” she told “Fox News Sunday.” Nelson noted that most...

    You've heard it from the showrunner. You've heard it from the star. And now you've heard it from the head of the network: Homeland is indeed ending with its upcoming eighth season. Showtime Networks CEO David Nevins on Monday confirmed the long-speculated news at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour. "I do not want to hear the word 'cancellation,'" Nevins clarified. "[Co-creator and showrunner] Alex Gansa will bring the show to its proper conclusion. Nevins had been previously shy to call it quits on the pay cabler's No. 1 drama, even though Gansa has been implying season eight would...

    The Department of Homeland Security has issued an alert regarding an increased threat, but this one doesn’t involve our nation’s DEFCON level. Nor does it have to do with missiles potentially coming in from North Korea. This alert was an internal warning for DHS employees to be on the lookout for threats coming from our own citizens. They’re citing specific and credible threats coming in from social media and other sources. (Government Executive) In a memo to employees over the weekend, acting Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security Claire Grady said there has been an increase in the number of threats...

    In December, the Daily Caller reported on the “verbally abusive” environment that Chris Matthews has created on the Hardball set, adding that people “felt like they had to ‘walk on eggshells’ around their ‘abusive’ boss.” Matthews flashed that thin skin on this evening’s Hardball. When guest David Corn politely pointed out that the TV series in question was “Homeland,” not “Homefront” as Matthews had said, Matthews snapped: “You going to keep correcting me?” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Okay, I recently started binge watching "Homeland" due to getting a Showtime subscription when I turned off my cable TV and switched to Amazon Prime. I just completed watching Season 1 of "Homeland" last night and I noticed several absurdities with the show. However, the biggest absurdity of them all is: HOW DID A VICE-PRESIDENT BECOME SO POWERFUL? The President on the show is invisible so far but Vice-President Walden is so powerful that he can even order drone missile strikes? Really? In what alternate universe does this happen? Ordering military operations by himself is waaaaay above a vice-president's pay...

    Now, some of the critics watching "Homeland" have — there’s a big story at NewsBusters featuring an interview with the cast. What everybody thinks has happened in Homeland is that after six years of naming Islamofascists as the bad guys, that Americans have become the bad guys. And that’s only half the story. That’s only half of what they’ve done on Homeland. This is amazing. And I’ll get to it in due course.

    Have you been watching Showtime's Homeland? It's deep into jihad-supporting territory. That's nothing new by itself. It's taken a hard turn that way since this season began. Before that, too, but not quite as far as this. The question is, how far? The answer is given by checking who they hired to advise the show: Ramzi Kassem is a Muslim-activist, Gitmo lawyer and columnist for Al-Jazeera. Do you remember when President Obama promised to "close" Guantanamo? Ramzi Kassem opposed those plans because they weren't good enough for the jihadis. To be fair, Obama's plan was always a fraud. Moving Guantanamo...
  • Homeland Security on Twin Cities transit prompts Twitter response

    The presence of Department of Homeland Security (DHS) police officers on light-rail trains in the Twin Cities provoked unease among some passengers Wednesday. Several took to Twitter to express their dismay. But Metro Transit said the DHS officers are part of a Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR) team working with its own police force to help ensure security on public trains and buses. The VIPR officers do not engage in any enforcement actions, and have worked with the department for “more than a decade,” said Metro Transit spokesman Howie Padilla.
