(JustPatriots.com)- We learned last week that the Department of Homeland Security is establishing a Disinformation Governance Board ostensibly to “counter disinformation,” and it placed a partisan leftwing nutjob who promoted the Russian Collusion hoax, as well as the claim that Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop was “Russian disinformation.”
Naturally, when DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas revealed the formation of this Disinformation Governance Board, reasonable people were alarmed, arguing that the Federal government was establishing its own “Ministry of Truth.”
Rather than continuing to demand that social media censor Americans on behalf of the government, the government is now cutting out the middleman and establishing a “board” to do the censoring directly under the guise of “homeland security.”
The leftwing nutjob in charge has a history of advocating for corporate and state censorship. But the administration claims that this disinformation board will be “nonpartisan.”
The other day, former Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared on Fox & Friends to discuss the DHS Ministry of Truth. Echoing the argument most Republicans are making, Gingrich explained that the creation of this Disinformation Governance Board is a violation of the First Amendment.
Gingrich demanded that Congress impeach Secretary Mayorkas and immediately defund his Ministry of Truth. Calling the creation of the board “nonsense,” Gingrich said the American people should understand that what the Biden administration is doing is a clear violation of the US Constitution.

During a hearing on Wednesday, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul tore into Secretary Mayorkas over his Ministry of Truth, arguing that the single biggest purveyor of disinformation in history is the United States government.
Sen @RandPaul just EVISCERATED Secretary Mayorkas on the Department of Homeland Security's "Ministry of Truth."
