Scary Poppins Leaves, Ministry Of Truth Continues
Scary Poppins Leaves, Ministry Of Truth Continues
Nina Jankowicz AKA ‘Scary Poppins’ resigned her Ministry of Truth Disinformation post, and resigned from the DHS entirely yesterday. Liberals such as Taylor Lorenz and the New York Times know who to blame. Republicans ‘pounced’ and bullied her out of her job.
A ‘pause’ of the Department of Homeland Security’s newly created board comes after its head, Nina Jankowicz, was the victim of coordinated online attacks as the administration struggled to respond
Nice try Taylor. Guess what? Nina tanked her own career. The DHS didn’t vet her one bit. It took less than half a day of searches to unearth her own past statements, cringe worthy Harry Potter song fests, weird off-putting Broadway ‘acts’ and that insane Mary Poppins disinformation song. I don’t care WHAT political fence you sit on, she was not suitable for ANY job at DHS, let alone leading the DHS Disinformation board!
The New York Times jumped into the fray with this defense.
The creation of the panel, called the Disinformation Governance Board, set off a firestorm of criticism when it was announced last month. While the criticism came from across the political spectrum, including civil liberty groups, the fiercest denunciations came from the right. Republican leaders and commentators talked about it as an Orwellian Ministry of Truth that would police people’s speech.
That was never the board’s mandate, a department spokesman said in a written statement. Instead, it was meant to coordinate the department’s various agencies in the fight against malicious disinformation by foreign adversaries, drug or human traffickers or other international crime groups.
According to the NY Slimes, Nina only resigned because of the vitriol and harassment she faced. The Times completely ignores her very weird troubled history of Mary Poppins and Harry Potter moments. Furthermore, the media as a whole completely ignores that the internal optics must’ve been horrifically bad if resignation before firing happened in less than three weeks!
While the board is on hiatus, its mission will be reviewed by the DHS’s Homeland Security Advisory Council, which is led by former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, a George W. Bush appointee, and former U.S. Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick, a Clinton administration official.
They have already been tasked with providing recommendations on how the department can garner public trust surrounding its disinformation efforts.
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Wednesday also asked the council for a broader review of the board within 75 days, after which next steps will be determined.
WHOA. Back up a minute! WHO is in charge of figuring out how to keep the Ministry of Truth moving forward??!!
of course they turn to the guy who wrote the patriot act https://t.co/l9pKh9kwLy— Vince Coglianese (@VinceCoglianese) May 18, 2022
Yes, Chertoff is bad enough.
Right & what is left of civil liberties Left shouldn't celebrate–partisan Democrat Jamie Gorelick & my old DHS boss NeverTrumper Michael Chertoff are doing 75-day review for DHS, which is DC way of pushing issue off front page only to restart program w/ minor tweaks when quiet pic.twitter.com/35I34APaiD— Matt A.

As for Jamie Gorelick? There’s a reason she was called the “Mistress of Disaster” once upon a time. I’ll let Powerline’s John Hindraker remind us why.
First, there was her tenure as deputy attorney general under Janet Reno during President Clinton’s first term. Reno described Gorelick as Justice’s “chief operating officer” from 1993 to 1997. She was a key Reno adviser during the horrendous events in Waco, Texas, in which David Koresh, 76 of his Branch Davidian followers (including 20 women and children) and four federal agents died in an unbelievably bungled assault intended to end a 50-day siege. …
Next came Gorelick’s move to Fannie Mae, where as vice chairwoman from 1997 to 2003 she was paid in excess of $26 million. During her time at Fannie Mae, Enron-style accounting techniques were used to make the government-chartered mortgage corporation appear to be in better financial shape than it was. As a result of the cooked books, Gorelick was paid more than $800,000 in bonuses in 1998. … It was also during these years that Fannie Mae began investing heavily in the subprime loans and unsecured mortgage securities that were at the heart of the Great Recession of 2008.
Finally, and most seriously, there is the matter of “Gorelick’s Wall” and 9/11. Gorelick was a member of the 9/11 Commission and became a focus of critical attention during its hearings when it became known that during her DOJ tenure she imposed a policy of radical separation between the FBI and the nation’s intelligence agencies in terrorism investigations. According to then-Attorney General John Ashcroft, “Gorelock’s Wall” was a key reason why “we did not know an attack was coming.”
Jamie Gorelick is bad news for this country, as is Michael Chertoff. With those two in charge of reassessing the Ministry of Truth “Pause” you can bet that they will figure out how to start running the Disinformation Board under the radar.
Given how the Biden Administration has acted over these last 2 1/2 years, there’s no reason to celebrate. Especially if Michael Chertoff and Jamie Gorelick are involved with the very un-American Ministry of Truth Disinformation Board.
