White House Seems Surprised That Anyone Would Oppose A Ministry Of Truth

Seriously, who would possibly be opposed to a government “board” cracking down on the free speech of citizens that the government disagrees with?

White House defends DHS ‘disinformation’ board: ‘Not sure who opposes that effort’

White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Thursday defended a recently-announced Department of Homeland Security effort to combat “disinformation” on issues related to COVID-19 and elections.

Asked by Fox News White House correspondent Jacqui Heinrich for more information what DHS’ Disinformation Governance Board would be doing specifically, Psaki said, “I really haven’t dug into this exactly, I mean, we of course support this effort but let me see if I can get more specifics.”

The White House announced its support for an effort from the DHS to crack down on what it considers to be online disinformation.

“We know there has been a range of [disinformation] out there about a range of topics, I mean, including COVID for example, and also elections and eligibility,” Psaki said, adding that she would check for additional information on what the board plans to do.

Why does the WH press secretary seem to not have much of an idea what the WH is doing? Isn’t that her job? Oh, she’s intentionally hiding what the Biden administration is doing.

Asked by Heinrich about prior statements made by Jankowicz and how the administration can “assuage concerns” over her appointment to lead the effort fairly, Psaki responded, “It sounds like the objective of the board is to prevent disinformation and misinformation from traveling around the country in a range of communities. I’m not sure who opposes that effort.”

That’s really not the government’s job, especially since we all know it will be about going after Wrongthink.

“Rather than police our border, Homeland Security has decided to make policing Americans’ speech its top priority,” Republican Sen. Josh Hawley wrote in a tweet. “They’re creating a Disinformation Board. No, really. And take a look at the views of the leftist radical running it.”

No one has a problem with a board of unelected, beyond partisan bureaucrats policing American’s speech, right?

    Teach many people who might have been saved were unalived because they believed they didn’t need vaccinations and instead relied on ivermectin..Should the government have stayed neutral on that? Should government refute lies such as ” seat belts cause deaths because some may have survived if thrown clear of the crash site”? Should children “learn” that many people consider PolPot to be a Cambodian hero? Should two sides always be shown? “Jan 6 was mostly peaceful” ( except for a few antifa in Trump costumes)

      Yes, John, Ivermectin has been shown to work in numerous studies, as you’ve seen on this blog.

      That’s what’s called an assumption, child. Got any actual evidence? (Sorry; rhetorical. I know you have none.)

    • Science! P. dOwd says:

      from Pubmed, randomized controlled clinical studies…

      Do your own research! Some studies show some effect. Larger studies do not. Statistics!



      Conclusions and relevance: In this randomized clinical trial of high-risk patients with mild to moderate COVID-19, ivermectin treatment during early illness did not prevent progression to severe disease. The study findings do not support the use of ivermectin for patients with COVID-19.


      Among adults with mild COVID-19, a 5-day course of ivermectin, compared with placebo, did not significantly improve the time to resolution of symptoms. The findings do not support the use of ivermectin for treatment of mild COVID-19, although larger trials may be needed to understand the effects of ivermectin on other clinically relevant outcomes.


      Conclusion: Ivermectin had no significant effect on preventing hospitalization of patients with COVID-19. Patients who received ivermectin required invasive MVS earlier in their treatment. No significant differences were observed in any of the other secondary outcomes.


      Clinical symptoms of fever, cough, and sore throat were comparable among the three groups. Virological clearance was earlier in the 5-day ivermectin treatment arm when compared to the placebo group (9.7 days vs 12.7 days; p = 0.02), but this was not the case for the ivermectin + doxycycline arm (11.5 days; p = 0.27). There were no severe adverse drug events recorded in the study. A 5-day course of ivermectin was found to be safe and effective in treating adult patients with mild COVID-19. Larger trials will be needed to confirm these preliminary findings.


      The main outcomes were mortality, the length of hospital stay, and the need for mechanical ventilation. All patients were followed up for 1 month. Overall, 82 individuals were randomized to receive ivermectin plus standard of care and 82 to receive standard of care alone. Patients in the ivermectin group had a shorter length of hospital stay (8.82 ± 4.94 days) than the control group (10.97 ± 5.28 days), but this was not statistically significant (p = 0.085). Three patients (3.7%) in each group required mechanical ventilation (p = 1.00). The death rate was three patients in the ivermectin group (3.7%) versus four patients (4.9%) in the control group without any significant difference between the two groups (p = 1.00). Although there was no statistically significant difference in any endpoints by ivermectin doses (12 mg/day for 3 days); there was an observed trend to reducing hospital stay in the ivermectin-treated group.

        Of course medical articles can never be wrong. RIGHT. As I have said before, you can pull thousands of articles on cholesterol. All will say lowering it solves CAD. But reading the article and doing the stats yourself, you find the opposite. But, we can always trust jeff with stats, he killed his own corporation not knowing about them.

        • Elwood P. dOwd says:


          Of course medical articles can be wrong. Many early Covid-19/ivermectin articles reached hasty conclusions. The larger, more carefully run studies demonstrated little effectiveness of ivermectin in treating or preventing Covid.

          Do your own research! LOL

    Hairy, many people who might have been saved were unalived because they took a experimental drug that killed and injured hundreds of thousands of people without being told about the possible side effects and with no legal recourse. Shouldn’t they have been forewarned and allowed the dignity of a free person to decide for themselves?
    Your seat bet analogy is once again irrelevant because a) seat belts have killed people in accidents so it’s a fact not a lie as you stated, and because b) seat belt use is a law in most states so the argument has been settle but the fact still remains.

    Whether or not to teach Pol Pot as a Cambodian hero is Cambodia’s problem. Our problem is most Americans don’t know he was a murderous communist like all the others. Yes, Jan 6 should be taught for what it was: a protest of unarmed American citizens redressing their grievances and about 300 of 20,000 got out of hand. They were unarmed, they burned nothing down, they toppled no statues and defaced nothing. Teaching that it was an “insurrection” belies the profound propaganda being groomed into our kids. The storming of the Bastille was an insurrection. The Bombardment of Ft. Sumpter was an insurrection. Unarmed civilians carrying MAGA, Trump and American flags into out nations capitol in protest was not an insurrection. The inflammatory word was immediately pinned on them by anti American zealots who wanted them shot if possible. IOW democrats and their commie allies.

    FJB Or should that be banned too?

    • Vaccine P. dOwd says:

      It’s a lie that the Covid vaccines were/are killing people. But then, lies are the stock-in-trade of the American right and their fascist arm, the QOP.

      The useful idiots of 0106 had no idea that behind the scenes DJ tRump and his minions were plotting the overturning of the 2020 election. We can excuse most of the useful idiots and prosecute them for their violent acts and not treason. But tRump et al…

    Remember this?

    The fact-checking website Politifact says Hillary Clinton is correct when she says 17 federal intelligence agencies have concluded that Russia is behind the hacking.

    Disinformation indeed.

    Bwaha! Lolgf https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

  4. The rather short-sighted left seem to have forgotten that there will be another presidential election in just 2½ years, and with inflation shooting up to levels not seen since the early 1980s, a 1.4% contraction in GDP in the first quarter — if the economy contracts in the second quarter, we will officially be in a recession — and Joe Biden having a significantly negative job approval rating, it’s just possible that the next Adolf Hitler — to the Democrats, every Republican President is “literally Hitler” — could be elected?

    Every Republican who aspires to the presidency should declare that, if elected, the Ministry of Propaganda within the Department of Fatherland Security will be immediately dismantled.

  5. Resistance P. dOwd says:

    If one wants to see the future of Amerika, look no fuhrer than Florida.

    Reichsstatthalter Ron derSantis attacked and is trying to punish Florida’s largest employer for daring to disagree with him (the definition of fascism!). If der Fuhrer DonJon tRumPutin decides to forego running in 2024, his mimic, Ron derSantis is the most likely 4th Reich (aka QOP) candidate.

    • david7134 says:

      Yes, let us hope that Florida is the blue print for our future. Finally a government stood up to corporate America and their perverted morality.

    I see the Bee reports that Zelensky is pissed off at FJB for only giving him and his Nazi battalions $33 billion in weapons when he gave the Taliban $86 billion. Now that the US is officially backing Nazi’s at war with a republic I guess we’ll all get all kinds of surprises. Mabey even get a city or two nuked.

    But to make up for slighting Hunters business partners with our tax dollars FJB promised to pay off all Ukrainian school loans because the USA isn’t the only country that should use the taxes of hard working Uber drivers to pay off the loans of the top 10% wealthiest debt. After all the democrat party is better edumicated than the rest of us and paying off worthless degrees in African Dance and Queer Studies is how they did it. All their “degrees” are in bullshit subjects and they walk around like their shit don’t stink when they can’t even define a “woman”.

    FJB and his “college” grift. Only the latest in the new methods the rich democrats steal the working man’s money.

    • .38 Police Special Elwood P. dOwd says:

      We see the Babylon Bee masthead, “Fake News You Can Trust!”, LOL.

      Lying Grifter Brandon calls Ukrainians “Nazis” and Russia a “Republic”.

      Paying off American student loans is a good idea if done correctly. Families such as mine can afford to pay off our children’s loans, and we did. But working class families and those that couldn’t make it through school are appropriate candidates.

    The right-wing echo chamber ignored a key point regarding the new Department of Homeland Security initiative: it applies to FOREIGN mis- and disinformation.

    Specifically noted was:

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Department of Homeland Security is stepping up an effort to counter disinformation coming from Russia as well as misleading information that human smugglers circulate to target migrants hoping to travel to the U.S.-Mexico border.

    We get that the American right supports the spread of Russian disinformation because Russia supports tRumpism, and the American right hates democracy and America.

    The fact is, the only way to combat American winger disinformation is to call it out and correct it. But it’s a monumental challenge. Every word a winger types or spews is a lie, including “the” and “and”!!

      Just as the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) establishes procedures for the physical and electronic surveillance and the collection of “foreign intelligence information” between “foreign powers” and “agents of foreign powers” suspected of espionage or terrorism, but has, in action, collected data on millions of Americans not suspected of any wrongdoing, and against whom no warrants have been issued.

      Were Mr Biden’s Ministry of Truth set up under President Trump, you’d have been apoplectic in your responses, calling it fascism.

      While Abteilung für Vaterländische Sicherheit is a more literal translation of Department of Fatherland Homeland Security, perhaps Reichssicherheitshauptamt, Reich Main Security Office, would be a more accurate one. And Reichsministerium für Volksaufklärung und Propaganda, frequently shortened to Propagandaministerium, was at least more honest than the ‘official’ name for Herr Biden’s Ministry of Truth, the ‘Disinformation Governance Board.’

      The only thing George Orwell got wrong was the date.

      • Elwood P. dOwd says:

        The esteeemed Mx Dana, like Mx Teach (aka Brandon), fantasizes about what would have happened at another time and another circumstance!

        America panicked after the Sep 11, 2001 attacks and overreacted with the AUMF-2001, Homeland Security Act, the DHS, the Patriot Act (gratefully expired), the TSA Act, the War on Terrorism and the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.

        We note too that Mx Brandon (aka Teach) put quotation marks around the word “wiretaps”. Is that because Mx Brandon knew they were not wiretaps? Probably.

        FISA was enacted in 1978 in response to abuses by the Nixon administration using federal resources to spy on political enemies and activists. In the 2000s, the Bush administration abused wiretaps to “protect the homeland”, and the FISA law was amended in 2008 to LOOSEN the restrictions!

        There is no suggestion that the searching of e-records by the FBI was illegal, and that’s the problem. Congress needs to get to work. Does anyone really feel the new QOP Congress will fix the problem, LOL? Will president duhSantis, LOL?
