Mayorkas Busted In A Lie That Could End America As We Know It

Things got uncomfortable during this week’s Ministry of Truth hearing. “That is the farthest thing from the truth,” DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas declared Wednesday, when Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) said that the government’s new Disinformation Governance Board (DGB) will decide, and tell Americans, what constitutes “truth.”

“The government’s gonna tell us what’s true – what could possibly go wrong?” Sen. Kennedy asked Sec. Mayorkas during a Senate hearing.

“That is quite incorrect. That is quite incorrect,” Sec. Mayorkas declared.

Later, Mayorkas called Kennedy’s characterization of the Disinformation Governance Boards as the Truth Police a “misstatement” and “the farthest thing from the truth”:

“Senator, it is so very important that I correct a misstatement that you made that the Department of Homeland Security is going to be the Truth Police.

”That is the farthest thing from the truth.”

“We address disinformation when it threatens the security of the homeland,” Sec. Mayorkas claimed.

Under Mayorkas, the DHS has declared climate change a threat. “The climate crisis poses a significant threat to both DHS operations and the American people,” DHS says in a webpage dedicated to the topic.

During the hearing, Sec. Mayorkas repeatedly refused to directly answer Sen. Kennedy’s questions.

Sen. Kennedy asked if the DGB would investigate things like former President Barack Obama’s infamous claim that, under Obamacare, “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor,” or former President Bill Clinton’s claim that he did not have sex with then-intern Monica Lewinsky – or if the DGB will be given its own police or its own enforcement authority.

Instead of answering yes or no, Sec. Mayorkas simply repeated his claim that the DGB “does not have operational authority or capability,” but merely combats information the government considers a threat to national security.

Watch

Writing to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas with “sincere concern” Thursday, the 13 Republican members of the committee demanded Mayorkas provide basic information to the committee including the disinformation board’s organization, members, schedule and recommendations. They also scolded Mayorkas for a confusing rollout of the board, according to the letter first obtained by Fox News Digital.

“Your recent testimony and media statements regarding the board, as well as a recent briefing for Committee staff, have only created more questions and concern,” says the letter, led by Ranking Member Rep. Jon Katko, R-N.Y.

“This Committee will carry out rigorous oversight of this board,” the Republicans continue. “In addition to further explanation regarding the establishment of the board, the American people deserve continued transparency surrounding the board’s discussions, decisions, and actions.”
