The Disinformation Governance Board
BY SCOTT C. TIPS, NHF PRESIDENT
In late April 2022, the Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas publicly revealed at a press conference the existence of a government Propaganda Department, euphemistically called the “Disinformation Governance Board” (DGB). Its mission is to suppress all viewpoints that disagree with what the government pronounces as correct. In other words, there will henceforth be a “party line” and those who oppose or even simply do not follow the party line can be punished.
It should seem obvious to even the room-temperature IQ people promoting this propaganda board that the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution flatly prohibits the government from creating and running any disinformation governance board. Anyone in the government who has promoted this idea should be promptly thrown out of office and personally sued for violating the constitutional rights of American citizens.
A Boot in Your Face
James Howard Kunstler, in his recent article “’Disinformation’ is Just a Boot in Your Face,” noted that, “Now we have the Disinformation Governance Board to be run by a TikTok musical comedy star, Nina Jankowicz, an instant laughingstock, since retailing disinformation has been her main occupation in the scant years she’s been on the Deep State scene. Ms. Jankowicz is a notorious RussiaGate hoaxer and psy-op agent in the October 2020 emergence of Hunter Biden’s laptop. She has zero credibility as anything but a professional falsifier. Her Disinfo Governance Board has no authority to regulate anything. It’s just a lame charade that can only draw more attention to the Left’s hatred of truth and reality. The Left pretends that free speech is a threat to civilization because, as usual, they are projecting psychologically. Their world is a mirror. In fact, the Left is a threat to civilization.”
Yet, just three weeks after the announcement of its existence, and in the face of mounting opposition, the Biden Regime has announced that the DGB has been “paused.” By the time you read this, the DGB may even have been eliminated. I think that this trial balloon of Totalitarianism has been popped.
Of course, such an establishment rag as The Washington Post has claimed that Nina Jankowicz and the DGB have been unfairly maligned by “coordinated online attacks,” and that the Board would have no power to suppress speech. Right. Anyone who knows anything about government and its innate habit of “regulatory creep” or “mission creep” will recognize that even if that were true, it would certainly not remain true for long since the Board’s power and influence would quickly grow over time, and probably sooner rather than later.
Still, the situation is fluid. The Washington Free Beacon has reported that “The Biden administration is calling in backup to bail out its Disinformation Governance Board just days after a disastrous launch. Their ringer is a former government official who blamed Russia for the Hunter Biden laptop story.” So, the DGB could well be revived under the direction of another stooge.
NHF supporter and well-known financial advisor Catherine Austin Fitts puts another piece into the jigsaw puzzle of our probable future with her warning that the government most likely plans to marry the DGB’s pronouncements of what is truth and what is untruth with its current powers of asset forfeiture. In other words, any citizen spreading “disinformation” could have his or her assets seized by the government. Talk about what an Orwellian nightmare future that would be!
She was also one of few to correctly predict that our World would split into two, with two distinct realities. We have witnessed just this over the past few years with one part of society being awake and aware of, and consciously searching and creating solutions for free living, in stark contrast to the mainstream-media-programmed and programmable obeying half of propaganda subjects who are not yet aware where they are heading with their injections, chips, and digits on the screen. I believe that the former half is growing and will prevail despite all these mindless government attempts to control and subjugate its people.
My own take on this musical-chair change is that the Biden Regime realized that even amongst its team of silly circus performers Nina Jankowicz was a total disaster and could not stay as head of the DGB. Regardless, whether this new sprouting branch of the Disinformation Industry stays or not, the actual Disinformation Industry – run by the Intelligence agencies – will continue and maintain its Information Dominance until we are able to eliminate it entirely.
Novelist George Orwell Predicted This
George Orwell lived a short life and died in 1950, but not before he had written a number of books that are still in print today – 1984, Animal Farm, and The Road to Wigan Pier – as well as numerous articles and given a few rare interviews. He is often cited as one of the most prescient writers around, having predicted (1) governments’ constant surveillance of their populations, (2) never-ending war, (3) language manipulation, or “Newspeak” as he put it, and (4) a return to Roman-style “bread and circuses” to distract the lower classes. The current U.S. Disinformation Governance Board is a “Ministry of Truth” travesty plucked straight out of the pages of Orwell’s novel 1984. It almost gives the impression that our government is following his writings to the letter, and it is shocking to realize how easily it could pull off the next string of restrictions and impose controls over us.
Sadly, all of George Orwell’s “predictions” listed here have come true. We already suffer under a high-tech censorship of any contrarian views, replete with so-called “fact-checkers” who suppress the truth about COVID-19, vaccination dangers, voter and electoral fraud, surveillance by intelligence agencies of ordinary citizens, and so much more. Just look at how popular opinions such as those of Dr. Joseph Mercola, President Trump, Del Bigtree, and many others have been shut out of Twitter and other social-media platforms. Consider, too, how Wikipedia routinely and comprehensively twists or entirely eliminates truthful entries in its so-called “People’s Dictionary” so as to support the mainstream propaganda efforts. NHF has been an ongoing target of Wikipedia’s brainwashing and I have written and spoken about this many times. Redefine words, as Wikipedia does, and people will soon enough forget that there was ever another, accurate definition of those words. Government will tell you what is right or wrong, true or false.
This Disinformation Governance Board is only the latest massive assault against our liberties. If the government can start telling us what we should think is “true” and what is “false” and then couple that with criminal charges leading to fines, asset seizures, and even imprisonment, then the United States and any other country with a similar Ministry of Truth are nothing other than totalitarian regimes.
The Higher the Monkey Climbs
Unfortunately, over the decades as government “Newspeak” has confusingly conflated “Democracy” with “Liberty,” people have begun to react with a Pavlovian response to any use of the word “Democracy,” completely forgetting, or not even knowing, that democracies with their mob rule can be just as totalitarian as an absolute monarchy or oligarchy!
For liberty to exist, there must be protection of individual liberties. Without the absolute protection of individual human rights, people in democracies are only voting for their jailers. To me, the word “Democracy” is no more synonymous with “Liberty” than are the words Fascism, Communism, Socialism, or any other failed system of tyrannical government that anoints itself as a God on Earth.
U.S. World War II General Joseph Stilwell once quipped that “the higher the monkey climbs, the more you see of its behind.” We are living witnesses to the truth of his remark as the democracies that we live in increasingly reveal their ugly sides as they climb the tree of power. And, unless we unite together to decisively fight this continuing climb into totalitarianism, our freedoms will soon be gone. It is up to all of us to commit to this fight. It is far too easy for us to think that someone else will save the day, and the government’s own disinformation efforts encourage this kind of thinking with false reports that “action is being taken” or “help is just around the corner.” No, the only help will be if we ourselves act, and act together.

The Future of Government Propaganda
The 1836 Texas Declaration of Independence stated, among other things, that “unless a People are educated and enlightened, it is idle to expect the continuance of civil liberty, or the capacity for self-government.” The decades-long takeover of our public schools and universities by totalitarian thinking has tragically resulted in an army of well-indoctrinated but ignorant young totalitarians who look to a God-like government for every solution to every perceived slight and problem. So, as our personal liberties flicker on the edge of extinction, it is up to us to stop and reverse this trend.
One thing you can count on is that whether the Biden Regime pulls the plug or not on its Disinformation Governance Board, a similar but renamed propaganda board or entity will re-appear. It may have a different name with different faces, but it will appear again. The Totalitarians will not stop their efforts to control us, completely and forever.
The National Health Federation promises you that no matter what shape or form this Ministry of Truth takes, the NHF will act decisively against it and continue spreading the uncensored truth. We have no choice. Our backs are to the Wall. There is no more room for retreat.
