Just last week, Obama was making statements about being opposed to so-called disinformation. Now we know why. The Department of Homeland Security has announced that it is forming the “Disinformation Governance Board.” Reading the infographics that they are producing(pdf warning), this is some truly dystopian, scary stuff. This new board is deeming anything that doesn’t come from “trusted sources” to be potential disinformation. The page also links to a page that focuses on “Election Infrastructure Security.” This indicates to me that the election in November is directly in the crosshairs.

I don’t think it’s any coincidence that this was announced the same week that Musk bought Twitter and is saying he will stop censoring those on the right. Read from the statement:

Disinformation and misinformation propagated and disseminated by both domestic and foreign actors were listed as the first key factors influencing the heightened threat environment, with grievances stoked by unsubstantiated widespread election fraud conspiracy theories and COVID-19 mis/disinformation noted as inspiring violent extremist attacks during 2021.

So job one is going to be the silencing those who are calling shenanigans on COVID restrictions and election fraud. According to a statement made to the AP, “The spread of disinformation can affect border security, Americans’ safety during disasters, and public trust in our democratic institutions.”

I broke this blog away from blogger and onto my own server because I was pretty sure that the left’s big push was going to be centered on silencing those of us who would oppose this takeover of our government. It looks like that will be happening, and they are going nuclear with this sooner than I thought.

Expect sources of information that don’t fit the officially approved narrative to begin disappearing, and voices opposing the government to be silenced. Last year, I reported that the Biden administration endorses the “Christchurch Call,” a series of sweeping regulations to “eliminate terrorist and violent extremist content online.”

Scary times, indeed. I don’t think that this election is going to go the way that the polls indicate.

Glad I’m 77 — don’t want to be around all this in another 30 years, having lived in a time when we actually were free. And no matter what the real numbers are, I don’t think we will vote our way out of this in the long run. The moves and the signs are far too reminiscent of past disasters afar from an American republic/democracy point of view. I’ve never seen mass migration OUTbound from here.

They are determined to make this ugly.

“The spread of disinformation can affect border security, …”. LOLOL. What border security? Amazing the crap that comes out of their mouths.

When I was a kid, free speech was sacrosanct. I can’t believe how fast censorship has become widespread and widely accepted. Unbelievable.

Sorry, I’m not following the polls. What does this mean:

“Scary times, indeed. I don’t think that this election is going to go the way that the polls indicate. “

I’m pretty sure the election will go as expected. Expected being a massive “Surge” of Dem votes after hours. And massive shenanigans involving drop boxes, and vote totals. They all in and don’t care who see’s the steal.

Anyone expecting the November election to go the gop’s way … well,they aren’t that bright. Same if they expect the Republicans to come save the day. I recall that the polls told much the same story before the 2020 swindle.

    The difference between a Congressional race and a Presidential on is that it is effectively hundreds of races – they can’t throw the election in a small number of cities and counties; they would have to do it in dozens of places, many of which have better procedures in place.
    In addition, the GOP, for all its faults, will have much more aggressive monitors on hand with lawyers and judges on speed dial as they did in Virginia in November. I doubt the Dems will be successful, but there are enough “squishy” GOP, especially in leadership positions, that I doubt there will be significant changes.

Been wondering what the Dems will come up with to steal it again. Also been wondering what America will do if the Dems do steal it again; I assume either “absolutely nothing” or “burn it down and kill them all.” No idea which.

There’s a third option, though, and that’s enough Republicans get elected to very slightly shift the majority and enough of those Republicans will be RINOs to make No Significant Difference in government operations.

Voting and elections? May as well slap the salami for all the good that will do us. We (here, and in similar minded forums anyway) alll know what has to happen. Capture of the system by neo-marxists and various other ideologically aligned authoritarian and collectivist assholes reached critical mass a while ago. They now have the means to pervert all facets of the system to their advantage.

Retaking control of the system from these psychologically defective fuckers will not an achieved from within the system and by its attendant processes, as it now operates as they direct it, with no regard for what the law says (or doesn’t).

And even if the above were not a self evident fact, the overwhelming majority of republicants are useless – if not actively harmful – at implementing the sort of changes needed to both hallt and massively roll back the dogshit that has been foisted on us by the left. Many of them support the same garbage policies, differing only by a matter of degree. Therefore, what is gained by getting them in office? They serve only to slow the rollout of the insults and damage to our country and culture. Ultimately, they save nothing from destruction. Therefore, there is no useful solution to be found within “their” system.

Unfortunately, they can still cancel your site by keeping your DNS entry from resolving. If you have a static IP, you might consider publishing it somewhere on your page so that people can use it should DNS stop working for your site. Of course, they can still block the IP, but it won’t be as easy as blocking DNS.
