    It doesn't get any better, thank you to all the truly WOKE people in power that called her out and brought the facts to light of her past lies and disinformation. I also thank Nina for her own stupidity coming out less than two weeks after Myorkas assured us on record that the DGB was only there to help vulnerable migrants on the southern border and to protect against terrorist threats when she suggested that certain accounts on twitter should be able to edit other users tweets. Joe Biden pauses the DGB, not because of any real concern for democracy or free speech concerns but because the optics were made even worse for his political allies, I guess they will have to just continue in the shadows as they no doubt will.

    Right wingers want to be able to lie to the public and not be exposed as liars.

    I didn't feel the need to post links as I deemed the basic facts were common knowledge. IMO I'd say this was a litmus test, it was very brazen of them to even suggest that sort of thing at all, even foolish, the extravagant tomfoolery suggests to me this was just a ruse. America isn't ready for this type of overt authoritarian rule..yet. Make no mistake, just as with the covert massive NSA spying on Americans (We ..uh...don't do that.) and the professional liars in the CIA saying the same. I imagine most of the standard MSM outlets presstitutes and shills on social media are pushing for more governmental control over ideas and ideals- hold every single one of them accountable for attempting to destroy our democracy.

    "It was intended to ensure coordination across the Department's component agencies as they protect Americans from disinformation that threatens the homeland," a DHS spokesperson said in a statement on Wednesday. "The Board has been grossly and intentionally mischaracterized: it was never about censorship or policing speech in any manner. It was designed to ensure we fulfill our mission to protect the homeland, while protecting core Constitutional rights."

    "However," the spokesperson continued, "false attacks have become a significant distraction from the Department's vitally important work to combat disinformation that threatens the safety and security of the American people."

    DHS pauses much-scrutinized disinformation group for review but slams 'gross mischaracterizations'

    I just saw Nina Jankowicz interviewed on the Chris Hayes show and she explained how their efforts were undermined by those who were exposed for disinformation. Their work was truly ethical and important. Hayes asked a good question in that given the divisiveness of politics today, and the lack of trust inherent in attitudes towards the party they oppose, was it a bad idea for a government agency to assess disinformation. If it was an agency under the Trump administration it would have zero credibility. It was a good point.

    I think democrats fail in some way in that they act in good faith and often without cynicism, and that is as odds with how citizens view politics today. Trump has poisoned the well and democrats are affected despite their ethical approach to public service.

    Oh I see, you want to do a Pepsi challenge on political liars.

    So what do you want to do, compare all these democrats to just Trump?

    OK, it's fair to assert that Trump lied more than all them.

    Let's make this a real challenge. You add up all the lies you think the democrats said, and we will compare that number to the tens of thousands documented lies by Trump. Deal? Or are you just bluffing like most conservatives?

    First let me ask you a simple question.....
    What do you mean by "right wingers"?
    Giving your postings, I suspect they are just people that just disagee with your political views.
    Is this correct or is it something deeper that makes you have to lash out when someone says something that you disagree with?

    To my response all I was saying is that both sides of the political spectrum have a tendency to not tell the whole truth.
    But I understand your response to that post since it points out facts that you do not want to have to face.
    Thus immediatly go on the defensive.

    I dont trust them at all. It will be back after the midterms should the unfortunate event o cur they hold power.
    Democrats want to control lines of communication and free speech all for themselves.
