Biden’s DHS Misinforms Congress About its Orwellian ‘Disinformation’ Board

ANALYSIS – As Republican senators try to conduct oversight over, and gain insight into, the outrageous, and supposedly now defunct, ‘Disinformation Governance Board’ at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Team Biden is blocking the senators at every step.

The board was dismantled under pressure in August following the recommendation of the Homeland Security Advisory Council. 

However, many are concerned that DHS will continue with its dangerously un-American efforts under a different name.

And now they are clearly afraid of what nefarious collusion with Big Tech the senators might uncover. 

So, as always, covering up is the next step when faced with hard questions and the great disinfectant called sunlight.

In this case, Team Biden is censoring its own documents which may describe its actions ‘prodding’ social media companies to censor conservative Americans under the guise of controlling ‘disinformation.’

Biden’s DHS essentially ‘misinformed’ Congress by totally redacting (censoring) large portions of documents requested by Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Josh Hawley of Missouri back in June.

These documents mostly related to the ‘Truth Board’s’ cozy relationship with social media platforms.

This issue is particularly critical now in light of recent revelations of collusion between the FBI and these same platforms, and the obscene partisan censorship done at Twitter in apparent coordination with the White House, as revealed by Elon Musk.

In a letter sent Thursday to embattled DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, Grassley and Hawley said the Department of Homeland Security heavily redacted documents they had requested six months ago.

The letter read: 

Based on our review of this material, it appears that many of the redactions are applied to pre-decisional and deliberative process material. We remind you that the oversight letters we send to the Executive Branch are signed in our capacity as sitting members of Congress, a separate and co-equal branch of government.

Newsmax reported:

Grassley and Hawley then said they would formally renew their requests to the department, as it is still “impossible to know the full extent to which various DHS components and offices are engaged in DHS’s ‘burgeoning’ counter-disinformation efforts.”

“Please provide full and complete responses to all questions contained in our June 7, 2022, letter,” the two wrote, adding that they would also like “a detailed description of DHS’s policy for responding to congressional oversight requests.”

The letter comes months after the White House canned the project due to substantial backlash, officially citing a recommendation from the Homeland Security Advisory Council, according to a press release.

“With the HSAC recommendations as a guide, 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 statement read.

Let’s hope that these senators will soon get the unredacted documents, so we can all learn what was really going on inside Biden’s dark attempt to create its own Orwellian ‘Ministry of Truth.’

  1. Why is it that there is ANY federal agency that seems to be ‘manipulating’ the data over which they have purview? Case in point cee dee cee with the data regarding DGU (defensive gun use). Yet they want us to believe that they need more funding to ‘study’ the blight of “gun violence” they claim is plaguing the land. And they wonder why we don’t trust them……………..

  2. The Biden regime always seems to have something to hide don’t they. That’s because they are always up to something that will result in the chipping away of America. They know what they are doing. They know it is unconstitutional. They know they took an oath, not to do such things. They know they are traitors. That is why the documents are redacted. That is why the Congress can’t see them in their true form. Biden needs to be impeached, as many times as it takes to get rid of him. Now that the Republicans may have some slight advantage in the House, they must begin to make this move and give this moron and his bosses, no quarter. The squatter in our White House, has to go. Then the rest of them, all the traitors.

  3. Lying to congress is a felony. “Misinforming” is underhanded, lies and felonies. Mayorkus and entire agency myst face charges. MAYORKUS AND HEADS OF ALL BIDENS CORRUPT AGENCIES BELONG IN FRONT OF FIRING SQUAD. TREASON GETS DEATH SENTENCE. NO REASON TO SPARE ANY.
