The Division of Homeland Safety has tapped yet one more disinformation agent to switch its final disinformation agent Nina Jankowicz to the Disinformation Governance Board after a disastrous rollout.
DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas picked former DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff to switch Jankowicz to steer a “thorough evaluation” of its embattled disinformation board, which was placed on “pause” Monday after intense backlash.
“This evaluation will concentrate on answering two pivotal questions. First, how can the Division most successfully and appropriately deal with disinformation that poses a risk to our nation,” the DHS mentioned in an announcement Wednesday.

“Second, how can DHS obtain higher transparency throughout our disinformation-related work and enhance belief with the general public and different stakeholders.”
Like Jankowicz, Chertoff additionally peddled the blatant lie that the Hunter Biden laptop computer story first damaged by the New York Submit was the product of “Russian disinformation” simply weeks earlier than the 2020 election.
“However it appears to be like just like the proof that’s rising reveals that these purported paperwork have been circulating by the Russians in Ukraine for some time period. This implies that this info is just not solely on-line but it surely’s an old style spy story involving human intelligence sources,” Chertoff, who served within the George W. Bush administration, mentioned in a digital “Defend Democracy” dialogue.
The contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop computer have been independently verified by quite a few forensic analysts for the New York Submit and the Every day Mail.
The authentications have been so conclusive that the New York Instances and The Washington Submit have been pressured earlier this yr to confess that Hunter Biden’s laptop computer and the corrupt emails did certainly belong to Joe Biden’s son.
This transfer by the DHS is its newest try to bail out its Orwellian “Ministry of Fact” board following weeks of fierce backlash surrounding each the board and its chair Jankowicz aka “Scary Poppins.”
To additional add to the irony of this complete growth, Fox Information reporter Peter Doocy crystallized the DHS’s weak rationalization for the “pause”: “The disinformation board is being shutdown due to disinformation? Is that what’s taking place right here?” he requested throughout a WH press briefing Wednesday.
