The Department of Homeland Security has been setting up a new board dubbed the ‘Disinformation Governance Board’ which will be used to combat the spread of misinformation in regard to homeland security. The board specifically focuses on irregular migration and information regarding Russia.

The board will be headed by Nina Jankowicz. Jankowicz is a former disinformation fellow at the Wilson Center according to Politico and advised Eastern European foreign ministries as part of the Fulbright Public Policy Fellowship.

Jankowicz announced her new position this morning and thanked the Biden Administration for the opportunity on Twitter.

This represents a stark shift from previous rhetoric parroted by the Biden Administration. Before the announcement, big tech platforms and the Administration seemed to work together to form a de facto ministry of truth to determine what qualifies as misinformation. Now, the board actually exists.

Naturally, conservatives or anyone who cares about free speech are in a frenzy to calculate the implications of the new board. The director has already produced questionable statements regarding her beliefs on free speech. Twitter user Jack Posobiec pulled up two older tweets from the new director already.

Jankowicz also had interesting views regarding the Hunter Biden laptop story back in 2020.

While it is difficult to comment on the qualifications of Jankowicz and her former positions, it is clear enough that her views represent a major move by the Democrats to try to hold on to their near-absolute narrative control.

The scope of the board is yet to be announced, but there should be no doubt that it will be used to suppress major critiques of establishment talking points and this will certainly result in the suppression of conservatives if left unchecked.
