The Joe Biden administration leads the world in disinformation. After all, Biden is a pathological liar. And the Liar-in-Chief.
Yet, Biden decided to create a “Disinformation Board” within the department of Homeland Security to get involved in online disinformation. I’m not sure if this is shocking or hilarious. Maybe it’s shockingly hilarious, considering the sheer audacity of it all.
The Czar of this board is a well-known Tik-Tok user who went viral with her disinformation song. After hearing this, I truly wish Mary Poppins was real, and could sue the pants of this pathetic purveyor of mistruths. Unfortunately, she’s forever tarnished “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.”
If her shrill voice was too annoying to sit through, her lyrics go like this:
Information laundering is really quite ferocious. It’s when a huckster takes some lies and makes them sound precocious. By saying them in Congress or a mainstream outlet, so disinformation’s origins are slightly less atrocious.
It’s how you hide a little, hide a little, little, little lie, it’s how you hide a little, little lie, it’s how you hide a little, little, little lie.
When Rudy Giuliani shared bad intel from Ukraine. Or when TikTok influencers say Covid can’t cause pain. They’re laundering disinfo and we really should take note. And not support their lies with our wallet, voice or vote – oh!
If only such criticism wasn’t coming from some “Woke-bot,” it would be slightly less cringey. However, Jankowicz is guilty of spreading tons of disinformation. She’s tweeted that Trump colluded with Russia, and that Hunter Biden’s laptop was a Trump campaign product.
As Tucker Carlsen put it, Jankowicz is “too Dem” to understand her own hypocrisy after Jankowicz said, “voters deserve the context. Not a fairy tail about a laptop repair shop.” I’d definitely call her statement one of those Democrat quotes that just didn’t age well, as the laptop scandal continues to yield embarrassing Biden blunders and crimes.
A Useful Idiot
Jankowicz isn’t an expert in disinformation. She’s a partisan hack. Or, as Carlsen summed up his remarks, she’s a “useful idiot” for the left. Clearly, the prospect of putting Jankowicz in front of Congress to testify is terrifying. Even among the seasoned liars on the left.
As the Washington Free Beacon reported,
Senate Democrats abruptly canceled a hearing at which President Joe Biden’s new disinformation czar Nina Jankowicz was expected to testify, a decision made after embarrassing videos posted by the self-proclaimed “Mary Poppins of disinformation” sparked a political firestorm.
Senate Democrats planned to hold a May 10 hearing on “disinformation, misinformation, and malinformation,” just a couple of weeks after Biden tapped Jankowicz to head his administration’s newly created Disinformation Governance Board. Democratic leaders were reluctant to have Jankowicz face Republican questioning, however, prompting them to nix the hearing, three Senate offices told the Washington Free Beacon.
“They yanked it when the entire ‘disinformation board’ blew up,” one senior aide told the Free Beacon. “They realized there’s no way they could reschedule without Nina Jankowicz being called to testify.”
The Senate’s Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee had the hearing scheduled since April, but the optics of the hearing in light of Jankowicz’s negative press led to its abrupt cancellation. Such hearings are normally sleepy events on Capitol Hill, but the controversy surrounding Jankowicz would have made the hearing a spectacle. The hearing would have been an opportunity for Republicans to question not only Jankowicz but also the creation of the board in the first place. The administration has refused to answer questions about its decision to give the disinformation post to Jankowicz, who has drawn criticism for falsely labeling Hunter Biden’s laptop a “Russian influence op” and for her flamboyant TikTok videos.
Desperation On Display
The left is clearly in a panic. Because no one cancels Senate hearings last minute. Except Democrats who need to hide a few things. Like the truth.
Of course, Biden is the KING of misinformation. As Kevin Jackson often says, “You can believe nothing this administration puts out.”
The article continues:
Canceling Senate hearings on such short notice is out of the ordinary and typically does not happen unless a witness or expert falls ill or has a last-minute scheduling conflict. The disinformation hearing, according to multiple Senate offices, had been scheduled since early April and was planned for May 10.
The committee is helmed by Sen. Gary Peters (Mich.), who also chairs the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, the organization tasked with maintaining Democrats’ Senate majority. Aides speculated the event was canceled to insulate vulnerable Democrats from the political blowback of the disinformation board.
“We have at least one Democrat who has a tough reelection coming up this cycle,” the aide said, referring to New Hampshire senator Maggie Hassan. “It’s pretty insane.”
“Peters is running cover for the administration,” another aide said. Peters did not respond to a request for comment.
Concerns about Biden’s appointment of Jankowicz to run the disinformation board surfaced immediately after Biden announced it late last month. Critics have said the agency may unfairly target conservatives. Sen. Josh Hawley (R., Mo.) has proposed legislation to defund the board altogether.
Although the board is officially tasked with monitoring alleged disinformation from Latin America and hostile countries such as Russia, the Department of Homeland Security has refused to offer more details on its purview. Both Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and former White House press secretary Jen Psaki said they were unfamiliar with Jankowicz’s past criticisms of conservatives and calls for censorship on social media.
Isn’t that ironic? They were “unfamiliar” with Jankowicz’s online behavior. Yet, the Biden Administration tasked her with monitoring online behavior. That’s like putting Alex Baldwin in charge of gun safety.
