Congressman Smith cosponsors legislation to defund Biden’s so-called ‘Disinformation Governance Board’

Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) this week cosponsored new legislation (H.R. 7690) to defund the Biden Administration’s so-called “Disinformation Governance Board”—the taxpayer-funded initiative posing threats to free speech that was recently announced by Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

The bill—introduced by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA)—would prohibit the use of federal funds to establish or carry out the DHS Disinformation Governance Board or any other similar entity created by the Biden Administration.

“Biden’s ‘Ministry of Truth’ represents an outrageous government overreach that empowers bureaucrats to decide singlehandedly what type of speech is permitted in America,” said Rep. Smith.

“Our legislation puts the brakes on this breach of privacy and ensures American taxpayers are not forced to fund this partisan initiative to monitor private online conversations,” Smith said.

Earlier this week, Smith—who has repeatedly voted to construct border security barriers on the Southern Border—also cosponsored legislation (H.Res. 1091) calling for the immediate resignation of Secretary Mayorkas for his failure to secure the border amid the worst border crisis in United States history.

“The disastrous immigration policies implemented by Biden and Mayorkas—including and especially the impending evisceration of President Trump’s effective Title 42 policy—have only exacerbated grave national security and humanitarian risks that continue to threaten the lives of so many,” said Smith.

  1. Why would congressman Smith defund Biden’s efforts to suppress legitimate information regarding the Bidens’ crooked overseas activities and their incriminating laptops?! I don’t get it! Why would congressman Smith block Biden’s sincere efforts to enable the media and social media giants to disseminate false info and accusations about conservatives, while suppressing genuine info regarding the crookedness of Liberal politicians?! I don’t get it! Please help me out on this one! Biden, as an American citizen and an elected official has every right to allocate tax payer funds for whatever purpose he desires! This is called “Liberty and Freedom”, and I condemn Congressman’s Smith’s efforts to create a Communist society where an honest man, like Joe Biden, is being blocked from exercising his free rights as a Democratically elected official to allocate our money to further advance the Liberal and Democratic Party agenda.
