Biden’s ‘Ministry of Truth’ Head Says as a Verified Twitter User She Should ‘Edit’ Others Tweets

Western Journal

Canadian psychologist and author Jordan Peterson made a statement that sums up the Biden administration: “If you think tough men are dangerous, wait until you see what weak men are capable of.”

The quote uses men as a stand-in for humanity in general, as weak women are just as dangerous as weak men.

President Joe Biden’s newly minted “minister of truth” Nina Jankowicz appears to be such a woman. She cannot tolerate the expression of an opinion with which she does not agree.

Jankowicz had an idea on how to keep everyone else in line: She and others like her should be able to alter content on Twitter to counteract wrongthink.

Jankowicz is the executive director of the recently created Disinformation Governance Board in the Department of Homeland Security. Before she got the post, she was good at spreading disinformation, such as when she shared the claim that Hunter Biden’s laptop was a Russian operation.

On Wednesday, the Post Millennial shared an undated video of Jankowicz braying about her Twitter scheme.

She suggested that because she is one of the anointed “blue checks” who are verified on Twitter (and she makes sure to point out she is the right kind of verified), she and others of her ilk should have the authority to add “context” to comments on the platform they do not like.

“And I am eligible for it because I’m verified,” Jankowicz said in the video shared on Twitter. “But there are a lot of people who shouldn’t be verified who aren’t, you know, legit, in my opinion. I mean, they are real people, but they’re not trustworthy.

“Anyway, so verified people can essentially start to edit Twitter, the same sort of way that Wikipedia is, so they can add context to certain tweets.”

She provided an example, saying that if former President Donald Trump “were still on Twitter and tweeted a claim about voter fraud, someone could add context from one of the 60 lawsuits that went through the court or something that an election official in one of the states said.”

Her co-conspirators nodded in agreement.

A person who wears a mask on a Zoom call, as one of the participants in the video did, would be the last person I’d want adding context to anything.

Jankowicz railed against “disinformation,” which at this point can be defined as a defensive smear invoked whenever truth and reality conflict with the Democratic agenda.

There is a creepy Justin Trudeau vibe about Jankowicz. Like the Canadian prime minister, she has been seen on numerous occasions being too delighted by her own delightfulness.

Jankowicz and Trudeau believe they prance and perform for our benefit, so we can be delighted too. They lack the self-awareness to see their own cringeworthiness.

These are the people who believe they have the right to control what we say and think.



Twitter has become such a battlefield because large-scale free speech would devastate the powers that be. The fact the Biden administration rolled out a dystopian gambit like the Disinformation Governance Board shows how afraid it is.

Propaganda is the left’s ammunition in the information war. A fair and open debate is too risky. The establishment hopes to defend itself by empowering narcissistic bureaucrats to shut down dissent.

Jankowicz wants to cancel our freedom of speech, and she would do it with a smile on her face and a song in her voice.

Melania Trump Breaks Year-Long Public Silence to Call Out ‘Leadership’ Over ‘Heartbreaking’ Formula Shortage

Western Journal

Published

on

Former first lady Melania Trump, who spent her time in the White House calling attention to children the world forgot, said America’s infant formula shortage is “heartbreaking.”

Trump sat down with Pete Hegseth of Fox News for what is being reported as her first interview since leaving the White House, the Washington Examiner reported. The interview will air Sunday. Fox posted a clip of the interview on Friday.

“I think it’s sad to see what’s going on if you really look deeply into it,” Trump said when asked to assess the state of the country.


“I think a lot of people are struggling and suffering and what is going on around the world as well. So it’s very sad to see, and I hope it changes fast,” Trump added.

Hegseth then asked about the formula shortage.

“It’s heartbreaking to see that they are struggling and the food is not available for children in [the] 21st century in the United States of America,” Trump said.

“Why is it happening?” Hegseth asked.

“Leadership,” she said.

“Leadership or lack thereof?” he followed up.

The answer came in a heartbeat: “Yeah.”

President Joe Biden was asked Friday if his administration could have responded faster to the shortage.

“If we’d been better mind readers, I guess we could have,” he told reporters, according to CNN.

In another clip posted by Fox, Trump spoke about the media bias she faced in the White House.


Hegseth noted that Vogue magazine never featured Trump on its cover, a distinction that went to Hillary Clinton, former first lady Michelle Obama (three times), Vice President Kamala Harris and first lady Jill Biden.

“They’re biased and they have likes and dislikes, and it’s so obvious,” Trump said.

“And I think [the] American people and everyone see it. It was their decision, and I have much more important things to do — and I did in the White House — than being on the cover of Vogue.”

After Thousands Cry Foul, White House Admits It ‘Misstated’ Claim About Biden and Vaccines

Western Journal

Published

on

The White House backtracked Saturday from its Friday claims that there was no COVID-19 vaccine available in the United States when President Joe Biden took office.

“We previously misstated that vaccines were unavailable in January 2021. We should have said that they were not widely available,” the White House wrote in a Saturday tweet. “Vaccines became available shortly before the President came into office. Since then, he’s responsible for fully vaccinating over 200 million people.”

Earlier, the Biden administration had written in a Friday post on Twitter that when Biden took office, “millions were unemployed and there was no vaccine available.”

“In the last 15 months, the economy has created 8.3M jobs and the unemployment rate stands at 3.6% — the fastest decline in unemployment to start a President’s term ever recorded,” the Biden White House further claimed.

The Biden administration’s initial Twitter post provoked a flurry of online criticism pointing out its inaccuracy: The vaccine was available before Biden took office.

Biden himself got the vaccine before becoming President.

Have you been vaccinated against COVID-19?

“Today, I received the COVID-19 vaccine. To the scientists and researchers who worked tirelessly to make this possible — thank you. We owe you an awful lot,” Biden wrote in a December 2020 tweet.

“And to the American people — know there is nothing to worry about. When the vaccine is available, I urge you to take it,” Biden wrote.


If there was “no vaccine available” as the Biden administration’s Friday tweet had initially claimed, then Biden should not have been able to get the vaccine.

Criticism of the tweet ranged from Twitter posts pointing out inaccuracies in the Biden administration’s initial statement to those pointing out alleged double standards in the way Twitter implements its COVID-19 misinformation policy.

During the first year of the pandemic, Twitter used to slap labels on Republican former President Donald Trump’s Twitter posts on COVID-19 saying the former President’s tweets “violated the Twitter Rules about spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to Covid-19.”

Twitter did not post such a label for the Biden administration’s Friday tweet.

“Sorry, not good enough. You spread COVID related misinformation and now must be banned. Isn’t that how it still works?” Republican Virginia House Delegate Nick Freitas tweeted in response to the White House’s Friday post on Twitter.

“I am a health care worker had my vaccine in 12/20 so yes they were available to all the men and women who worked so very hard during the pandemic,” one Twitter user wrote.

The Republican Party’s Deputy Director of Rapid Response Jake Schneider wrote, “Thank you, President Trump! #GreatMAGAKing” in response to the White House’s tweet.

Schneider seemed to be referencing Operation Warp Speed, a Trump administration-initiated public-private partnership that sought to quickly develop, manufacture and distribute vaccines against COVID-19.

Operation Warp Speed helped develop a system that the Biden administration widely depended on for its immunization goals for the country.

Despite the Biden administration’s use of systems developed by the Trump administration, Biden and top Biden administration officials have refused to give or share credit with President Trump, ABC reported.

Several “wins” touted by the Biden administration in the vaccination front of the nation’s fight against the pandemic are directly linked to work done by the Trump administration, the outlet reported.
