Americans for Prosperity Files FOIA to Expose Biden’s Disinfo Board

The Americans for Prosperity Foundation is fighting to expose the secrecy behind President Joe Biden’s Orwellian Disinformation Governance Board.

The Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) recently announced Disinformation Governance Board (DGB) has been nicknamed the “Ministry of Truth” for the threat it poses to free speech. The board’s goals, power, membership, funding source, and other details are all unclear. This is one of its biggest concerns. Americans for Prosperity Foundation submitted a Freedom of Information Act Request (FOIA), to the DHS. This request was in response to vital questions.

Disinformation Governance Board marks a significant new step up in the realm of censorship. AFP noted that it’s one thing for a private entity to “fact-check,” but “[i]t’s something entirely different for an enormous powerful government agency to broadly step into the game, asserting that it will go beyond merely engaging in counter-speech and step forward to ‘safeguard’ the country.”.

AFP quoted the DHS disinformation definition as “false information that is deliberately spread with the intent to deceive or mislead.” This, AFP noted, is very vague and broad. So who will even determine what is “false information,” and what will the standard be? AFP also asked important questions, such as how much control will the DGB have over both the DHS (and non-governmental) organizations? AFP also questioned, “Why did they pick the director, and who really has operational control of the board?”

AFP also questioned:  “Does DHS even have the authority to do this, and have they considered whether it’s a lawful (or good!) idea? They haven’t said.” The DHS has not even explained exactly what the censorship board will be doing.

Multiple members or advisors of the newly formed “Ministry of Truth” have themselves pushed disinformation in the past. Self-proclaimed “Mary Poppins of disinformation” and current DGB executive director Nina Jankowicz is on record pushing blatant misinformation about former President Donald Trump allegedly colluding with Russia. MRC Business America, MRC Free Speech America, and MRC Free Speech America have exclusively disclosed that Jennifer Daskal is a board co-leader. Daskal has multiple ties to George Soros, a leftist billionaire. His White House and President Joe Biden have worked together with Big Tech companies on multiple occasions to improve censorship.
