Mary Poppins of Disinformation Sings Again

Alright folks, buckle up because Jesse’s got something juicy for you today. Normally, I prefer to keep my magnifying glass focused on the Biden clan's shenanigans, but this one is just too good to pass up. Picture this: it’s a mix of The Bold and the Beautiful and Boston Legal, but with a twist that screams corruption. So let's dive in, shall we?

Yes, you read that right. Nina Jankowicz is back. This time, she’s not playing around. You might remember her as the head honcho of the notorious "Disinformation Governance Board" within the Department of Homeland Security. Well, she's now heading a private disinformation group called the American Sunlight Project. And get this: she’s got funding to “expose and oppose efforts to weaponize disinformation in the United States.” Sounds noble, right? But let's not kid ourselves. This is all part of a grander scheme to paint opposing views as dangerous for democracy as we gear up for a historic election.


Who’s behind this new venture? Your guess is as good as mine, but it’s election season, so take a wild guess. Carlos Álvarez-Aranyos, known for his association with Protect Democracy—a group that’s basically the Avengers for anti-Trump crusaders—is co-founder. Remember the lawsuit against the Trump campaign based on the debunked Russian collusion claims? Yeah, that was them. And surprise, surprise, it got dismissed. But here we are, talking about disinformation again. Funny how that works, right?


Jankowicz promises that once researchers are free to conduct their work, Americans will understand the nature and severity of the disinformation threats we face. “Disinformation knows no political party. Its ultimate victim is our democracy,” she says. Oh, please. If I had a dollar for every time someone said they were defending democracy while pushing a political agenda, I’d be richer than Jeff Bezos.

Let’s talk about how disinformation is defined by these groups. Spoiler alert: it's incredibly biased. The Washington Examiner revealed that the federal government helped fund the Global Disinformation Index (GDI), which scares advertisers away from sites it deems risky. And guess what? All the riskiest sites are popular with conservatives, libertarians, and independents. On the other hand, HuffPost, a far-left media outlet, is in the clear. No bias there, right?


I’ve been a long critic of Jankowicz. Remember her cringeworthy musical number where she sang, “You can just call me the Mary Poppins of disinformation”? Classic. She’s portrayed herself as a defender of free speech who opposed efforts to censor viewpoints. Yeah, and pigs fly. When she was appointed executive director of the Disinformation Governance Board in April 2022, she was supposed to combat disinformation on various subjects. Instead, she became a symbol of censorship.

Jankowicz once argued that Congress should create new laws to block mockery of women online by reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). She even testified before the British House of Parliament, stating that “gender misinformation” is a national security concern and a threat to democracy. So, if you make a joke online, you might just be a national security threat. Makes perfect sense, right?


Oh, and let’s not forget the Hunter Biden laptop fiasco. Jankowicz pushed the narrative that it was a false story and that “we should view it as a Trump campaign product.” She even cited Chris Steele, the guy behind the infamous Steele Dossier, as a source on how to deal with disinformation. You can’t make this stuff up!


When Elon Musk talked about bringing free speech values back to Twitter, Jankowicz shuddered at the thought. In an NPR interview, she said, “I shudder to think about if free speech absolutists were taking over more platforms, what that would look like for marginalized communities.” Because, of course, free speech is terrifying.

Jankowicz’s new project is expected to follow the same biased judgments over what constitutes “misinformation, disinformation, and malinformation” (MDM). The government has already used this rationale to coordinate censorship. Within DHS, Jen Easterly extended her agency’s mandate over critical infrastructure to include “our cognitive infrastructure.” They even combat “malinformation,” which is information “based on fact, but used out of context to mislead, harm, or manipulate.”


Jankowicz famously sang how “You can just call me the Mary Poppins of disinformation.” And once again, she’s proving to be “practically perfect in every way” when it comes to silencing others under the guise of combating disinformation. So, as we head into another election season, remember to keep your eyes open and your mind critical. Because the real disinformation might just be coming from those who claim to be fighting it.
