In the early stages of the Department’s implementation, the Republicans did an admirable job. The Orwellian Disinformation Governance Board of Homeland Security quickly failed to deliver and the Biden White House had no choice but to announce that it was closing the operation.
Nina Jankowicz was the executive director of Biden’s Ministry of Truth. The Republican campaign played a key role in uncovering her. This liberal fruitcake is known for supporting the censorship of conservatives with heavy-handedness.
Jankowicz, the one who resigned after the announcement about the “pause”, was already doing the best thing the left does: playing the victim to anyone who will listen.
She said in a CNN interview that we were “unfortunately and ironically” overtaken by a disinformation campaign launched by people who want their national security to be more important than their political ambitions.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R.Texas), saw the interview and responded accordingly with a helpful translation.
Translation: “the true information—videos, dammit—that came out about me, made it very hard for me to call other true information false, and that was my entire job description….” https://t.co/xrGMTqEYll

I find it the self-important, left-leaning types who frustrate me most. They believe that if they continue to pretend that they are victims of a right-wing conspiracy/ “smear program”, they will eventually win the support of their supporters and weather the storm.
These tactics can sometimes backfire. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is an example of this. She opens her mouth to insert her shoe, and the far left loves her. But middle America doesn’t. The GOP frequently features her and other radical members of the “Squad” in ads in the battleground House districts, where there is more competition.
This is why leftist claims by conservatives that they want to “shut down progressives (especially women Democrats),” are so absurd. Conservatives want people talking because it makes it easier for them when they run for office.
According to my research, it wasn’t Republicans who demanded the government establish Ministries of Truth and that Big Tech companies tighten control on speech they don’t like.
