DHS Head Claims ‘Ministry Of Truth’ Will Not Have “Operational Authority”

Summit News – by Steve Watson

When questioned over the weekend if the Department Of Homeland Security’s new ‘Disinformation Governance Board’ will spy on Americans, Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas claimed that it will not have “operational authority” and will instead “disseminate those best practices to the operators that have been executing and addressing this threat for years.” 

CNN anchor Dana Bash noted of the disinformation board that “Republicans are calling it ‘Orwellian’ and comparing it to the Ministry of Truth in the novel ‘1984,’” further asking “Will it monitor American citizens?”

Mayorkas replied “those criticisms are precisely the opposite of what this small working group within the Department of Homeland Security will do,” adding that it will work “to ensure that the way in which we address threats, the connectivity between threats and acts of violence are addressed without infringing on free speech.”

“Will American citizens be monitored?” Bash asked again.

“No,” Mayorkas replied.

“Guarantee that?” Bash further probed.

“So what we do, we in the Department of Homeland Security don’t monitor American citizens,” Mayorkas continued to claim.

“You don’t, but will this change that?” Bash asked again.

“No, no, the board does not have any operational capability,” Mayorkas repeated.

Bash then noted that many have pointed out that the person heading up the Board, Nina Jankowicz, is clearly not a neutral actor.

The host then asked “Would you be okay if Donald Trump were president, if he created this disinformation governance board? Or — if it is in place and he wins again in 2024 — that he’s in charge of such a thing?”

Mayorkas again gave a non-answer, instead claiming that the outfit will “safeguard” freedom of speech and civil liberties.


When the DHS head is claiming practically the exact opposite of what the person running the Ministry of Truth is saying, you know there is a problem.

As we reported last week, Jankowicz has previously declared that free speech makes her ‘shudder’ and falsely labeled the Hunter Biden laptop story disinformation.

Jankowicz herself is a a prolific spreader of disinformation. She even claimed mocking Kamala Harris was a threat to national security.

Republicans have called for the ‘Ministry of Truth’ to be scrapped, labelling it a ‘monstrosity’.

  1. Ah, even more smoke, mirrors and double-speak and he admits chump was pos in chief while they were “monitoring” US then unlawfully.

  2. It is a most chilling thing to look right into the face of COMMUNISM. It’s pompous proclamations, it’s gory intentions. It was deceptively sold as a system of fairness. Deceptively FORCED:

    Dictionary said: “Communism embraced a revolutionary ideology in which the state would wither away after the overthrow of the capitalist system. In practice, however, the state grew to control all aspects of communist society.”

    Kinda shows how alike Communism and Capitalism are. With either, the people lose. Yet self-determined entrepreneurship is ever with us in the peoples’ innovation and desire to prosper.

    But there it is again, in article after article, report after report, the ignoring of The Bill of Rights, the document that puts to rest all forms of oppressive government. Ignored. Because it is dangerous to those who keep attempting to steal rights that absolutely CANNOT BE STOLEN. They run from it like vampires from crucifixes. Yet it stands, in place and untarnished.
