War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength. — George Orwell, 1984
By Rich Kozlovich
No matter how well you may write, or how great your evidence or logic may be, there are just some things that just don't have the impact of a good cartoon.
This article will be punctuated with cartoons conveying the points we all "need" to get. Since Elon Musk, who I think is one strange person, started buying Twitter stock, and overnight became the largest stock holder of the company, the media world went nuts.
When he bought it, the media world, leftists, Democrats, government bureaucrats, RINO's, pundits and lunatic Hollywood Stars, went apoplectic. They're outraged that "an independent-thinking billionaire like Elon Musk could ever get control of a media outlet". Amazing, since not one of them were outraged at leftist billionaires like "Michael Bloomberg, Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, and the Google billionaires running media outlets:
- CEO Jeff Bezos reinvented the failing, Washington Post he bought for $250 million.
- CNN, MSNBC, the Washington Post, the New York Times, ABC, NBC, and CBS continually collude on what to report and how to report. They all suppressed the true story about Hunter Biden's laptop because they were campaigning for his dad.
- They intentionally interfered in the election.
- They all intentionally spread the lies about Russian collusion as they colluded with the Democrats.
- They all suppress anyone who dared disagree with Dr. Anthony Fauci and the CDC. More on that.
All of a sudden Elon Musk was a massive threat to what they're calling "our" democracy and the world was doomed, dooooomed I tell you!
Well, what they're calling "our" democracy isn't our democracy it's "their" democracy, or I should say their version of democracy, and the real danger to "our" republic. Kind of like the Democratic Republic of N. Korea, or the Democratic Republic of the Congo, or People’s Democratic Republic of Algeria, or Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia. In their "democracy" free speech is absolutely essential, provided as long as it's a one way street, with the sign on that street saying you can only drive on the left.
Anything else....everything else...must and will be
censored. Given enough time, it will be made illegal subject to prosecution here as it is in these tyrannical socialist stink holes.
The guy that's slated to be in charge of this new and illegal Ministry of Information, is the Director of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas . Now that may give a few people pause. Isn't that a spy agency? Well, not to worry, he's assured everyone there's nothing to worry about. None of this is Orwellian!
Like any Biden administration official, he claimed that anyone who saw problems with this was responding to a "messaging" problem rather than a real problem.
See, it isn't the Ministry of Misinformation that's the problem, it's people are seeing things that aren't there, and clearly just too stupid to understand the need and importance of what's being proposed, and if allowed, would be implemented without Congressional approval or permitting Constitutional restraints. Stopping misinformation is that critical to "our" democracy. What could possibly go wrong?
Well, let's start with what constitutes misinformation? How about claiming global warming is going to set the world on fire and causes just about everything? Now some might think that hyperbole is really a load of horsepucky, but no, no, that's okay, in spite of the all facts showing otherwise, and any disputation of that narrative is misinformation, and they intend to collaborate with social media to implement their goal of ending misinformation. That of course means banning anyone who doesn't follow the leftist narrative.
Under Biden and as a result of his misbegotten policies, the price of natural gas is up 192%, diesel 176%, regular gasoline 74%, and foodstuffs 59%. Supply chain problems are creating shortages of building supplies, fertilizer, food, medicines -- you name it. Massive government giveaways have gotten many people used to the notion that work is unnecessary, and employers are having difficulty staffing up......I’m not even going into Biden’s foreign policies, except to mention that the administration deliberately seems to be provoking a broader war in Europe and renewed hostilities in the Middle East along with a nuclear-armed Iran (after the calm created by the Trump Abrahamic Accords and his treatment of the Iranian mullahs). Oh, and let me not forget -- the utter lack of controlled immigration across the Southern border under Biden.
How about articles this pandemic is a fraud. Masks are worthless. Vaccinations aren't vaccinations, and are causing serious long term health consequences, including making people more susceptible to these coronaviruses. That the "survival rate is estimated at between 97% and 99.75%."
No, that's absolutely evil misinformation to the leftist agenda! It's accurate, but it's not leftist narrative, and I've been kicked off of LinkedIn. Why? They've told me they don't like me any more, and I can't come out and play with them any longer. Here's what they said:
- LinkedIn and Me
- LinkedIn and Me, Part II
- LinkedIn and Me, Part III
- America, We Have a Problem: Censorship
- Biden Consequence: Censorship is Free Speech
What is disinformation? Disinformation is information that is intended to mislead or obscure the truth. Let's not be delusionally naive, the left will use the power and resources of government to illegally spy on Americans, censor them and ban their public positions, truth not withstanding.
According to Mayorkas the goal of his new, illegal agency is “to identify individuals who could be descending into violence by reason of ideologies of hate, false narratives, or other disinformation and misinformation propagated on social media and other platforms.” Okay, yet this is the guy who doesn't know if terror suspects caught at the border are still in the US. But he's absolutely convinced the greatest domestic terrorism threat to America is:
"domestic violent extremism. The most prominent threat is the threat of White supremacists." (Editor's Note: Please follow the link and view the video. So then ask yourself, who's guilty of misinformation? RK)
This is what he's supposed to be in charge of and yet he has no idea of what' actually going on. But like all the Biden appointees he demonstrates a cluelessness that's astounding: Obfuscating the facts and avoiding answering questions. Yet, he knows....knows I tell you.... it's all those white supremacists out there that represent America's greatest danger. And he did he have any examples of that? No! Remarkable. Oh, wait, maybe it's all those parents attending school board meetings and protesting CRT and sexual grooming of the nation's children he's talking about! Remarkable. As the author noted this was:
"gross dishonesty, incompetence/malfeasance, and leftist agenda pushing of this abominable administration on display yet again."
The fact is this new and illegal 'Ministry of Truth' is necessary for leftists to prevent the truth, not promote it.
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson unloaded on Joe Biden’s plan to create a taxpayer-funded thought police that so happens will be deployed ahead of the 2022 midterms. The timing isn’t lost on anyone. Elon Musk buys Twitter—and now the Department of Homeland Security announced this “disinformation” hit squad that will combat narrative Democrats don’t like. We’re not Oceania. We’re not a banana republic. Liberals are afraid they can’t control the flow of information anymore. The days of Twitter censoring conservatives are over. A simple Google search often torpedoes most woke talking points with simple facts and figures that have existed for years. With the Left losing control of a major social media platform and Joe Biden’s increasing the frequency of his dementia moments, clamping down on the access is key. There is no good news associated with this administration. None. So, deploy DHS. Carlson was having none of it (via Real Clear Politics):
Is this the hill that
patriots will die on? Is this the moment when MAGA nation says, "Hell,
no"? Is this the time when hardworking blue-collar Americans say with a
unified voice: "We will not comply"? Is this the legal case where the
Supreme Court acts as if it is ...the Supreme Court and declares Mr.
Biden's newly created Bureau of Disinformation unconstitutional from its
inception? Is this the final straw, where a clear plurality of
Republicans "man up" and act as the opposition party should, and refuse
to fund Mr. Biden's "Ministry of Truth"?
This is horrific and a direct attack on the Constitution. And it also puts citizens on notice that opinions, and ideas, and editorials, and online comments, and unapproved newspaper articles that are not government-approved...are now illegal. Non-approved government speech, thought, and writings will become a crime.
But conservatives, i.e. "all you racist, redneck, MAGA-hat wearing yahoos getting all upset about? This was all your guy’s idea. That's right, according to that breath of fresh air, truth, justice, honesty and transparency, Jen Psaki, it was started by the Trump administration.
What evidence did she provide? None! And not one person came forward to offer evidence in support of her statement. A statement that should qualify as "misinformation", or how about calling it for what it is: A lie? Except of course to the Ministry of Truth. But maybe it really did start with Trump? Except timelines are nasty things when it comes to truth.
Now wait a minute. Politico revealed the existence of the Board on Wednesday, it said that the Department of Homeland Security was “standing up a new Disinformation Governance Board.” The “standing up” locution is strange, but “new” is a fairly unambiguous word. If the Board is new, it’s not a continuation of a Trump administration initiative. Mayorkas confirmed this on Thursday, saying: “We have just established a mis- and disinformation governance board in the Department of Homeland Security.” He didn’t say anything about continuing work begun during the Trump administration, either.
But it gets better. What about Nina Jankowicz (Editor's Note: I accidentally posted Jacqui Heinrich instead of Nina Jankowicz. Jacqui Heinrich is the reporter who challenged Psaki. RK) who, if this was allowed to transpire, would be the free speech misinformation Czar. That will be in Part II tomorrow. That you won't want to miss.
