Kudlow: Psaki is trying to spin the Disinformation Governance Board
Kudlow’ host gives his take on the Disinformation Governance Board.
So, we have now learned that the Biden administration has set up something called the Disinformation Governance Board. It will be led by one Nina Jankowicz, who herself has a history of spreading disinformation. Isn't that perfect?
Jankowicz has a history of sharing misleading claims about British ex-spy Christopher Steele's now-discredited dossier. She also cast doubt on the Hunter Biden laptop story, blaming it on Russian disinformation.
Ironically, in the year 2020, she said, "I do not believe that government should be in the business" of fighting disinformation. Well, at least she got that part right, but this new Disinformation Governance Board is a Soviet-style – or make that Putin-style – attempt to suppress information and you can bet it will try to suppress information from conservative sources.

You can also bet that it is not a coincidence that this Orwellian, free speech crushing attempt comes at the same time that Elon Musk intends to liberate free speech on Twitter.
We don't know a lot about this board yet, but we do know, from DHS Secretary Mayorkas' recent congressional testimony, that its duties will cover a wide swath of information throughout the country.
Mayorkas says it will focus on disinformation surrounding Russia's invasion of Ukraine and on the messaging from various smuggling groups to would-be illegal immigrants coming across the southern border.
Then Mayorkas informed Congress that the disinformation board will deal with election information. Election information? What does that mean? Might that mean preventing opposing viewpoints during the political debate? That is, taking sides and labeling conservative views "misinformation?"
Last year, Mayorkas told Congress he was working with the Education Department on a program to help school children spot when they are being fed dangerous misinformation.
What? Is this Homeland Security labeling parents "domestic terrorists" because they don't want school board bureaucrats and the teachers' unions to dictate gender identity, sexual habits, racism and all the other far-left woke agenda items? Would that be prosecuted by DHS as "misinformation?" Really?
Isn't it bad enough the Biden Justice Department went down that road? Nobody really knows what this governance board is. What is its mission?
They've stuck it in the Office of the Secretary, which means it will not be subject to congressional oversight. If this sounds an awful lot like a political ploy to chase conservative viewpoints during the upcoming midterm elections and then the presidential election in '24, I'll bet that's exactly what they have in mind.
We're talking "speech police" here. Let me repeat, Soviet-style, Putin-style attempts to curb free speech and the First Amendment. By the way, Madam Psaki is trying to spin this as a continuation of the Trump administration, but that is major disinformation.
