The Department of Homeland Security on Monday issued its latest summary of the terrorism threat facing the U.S.

Biden’s Ministry Of Truth Is Officially Shelved, DHS Says It Will Find A Way To Fulfill Mission

One month after an advisory board literally told the Department of Homeland Security that there was “no need” for a “Disinformation Governance Board,” the DHS put the idea to rest.

President Joe Biden’s Ministry of Truth has been axed for good.

One month after an advisory board literally told the Department of Homeland Security that there was “no need” for a “Disinformation Governance Board,” the DHS put the idea to rest.

In a statement issued Wednesday, the department cited the July opinion of the Homeland Security Advisory Council.

While the council “has concluded that countering disinformation that threatens the homeland, and providing the public with accurate information in response, is critical to fulfilling the Department’s missions,” the statement said, “In accordance with the HSAC’s prior recommendation, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas has terminated the Disinformation Governance Board and rescinded its charter effective today, August 24, 2022.”

“With the HSAC recommendations as a guide,” the statement continued, “the Department will continue to address threat streams that undermine the security of our country consistent with the law, while upholding the privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties of the American people and promoting transparency in our work.”

The department’s action followed the advisory panel’s report from mid-July that said there was “no need” for such a board, which conservatives had likened to the Ministry of Truth from George Orwell’s novel “1984.”

Aside from that dubious reference point, the disinfo board was a lightning rod for critics because of Biden’s recommended chairwoman, Nina Jankowicz.

Although Jankowicz was an alleged disinformation expert out of the Ivy League, she was a pervasive proponent of anti-Trump disinformation.

As The Free Press reported in July, Jankowicz had declared legitimate the discredited and infamous dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele that asserted former President Donald Trump worked with Russian operatives.

The alleged expert also claimed that the 2020 New York Post story about Hunter Biden’s laptop files was a Russian disinformation campaign, even though The New York Times and others have now confirmed the Post’s reporting.

She also pushed the idea, widely spread in the liberal media during Trump’s campaign but now thoroughly debunked, that Trump had backchannels to a Russian bank.
