Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody appeared on “Fox & Friends First” Thursday to take a victory lap over the Biden administration’s decision to pause the controversial DHS Disinformation Board while its head, Nina Jankowicz, was put on ice, resigning in disgrace shortly thereafter.
The segment opened up with the announcement that President Joe Biden’s DHS Disinformation Board has been halted just three weeks after it was launched with Jankowicz embarrassingly exiting stage left.
“All of these sensationalist narratives about what people thought the board was going to do are completely wrong. It was a coordinating mechanism,” Jankowicz told host Chris Hayes on MSNBC’s “All-In” Wednesday.
“I fully understand Americans’ concerns that they don’t want government involved in policing speech. And good news… this initiative wasn’t involved in policing speech and neither was I,” she stated while nervously laughing the whole thing off.

“Florida’s Attorney General Ashley Moody led the nationwide effort to disband the board and she joins us now. Ashley, thanks for being here. Why did the White House cave in your estimation? Was it your pressure?” host Todd Piro asked concerning what many referred to as a “Ministry of Truth.”
“I think they underestimated the American people and those of us who were paying attention to their calculated orchestration to mislead the public,” Moody asserted after previously stating in a letter that she felt the board was straight out of the novel “1984,” according to Florida Politics.
It should be no surprise that the Biden administration has seen the results of their disastrous actions and are trying to cover it up with a disinformation board—led by “Mary Poppins” and her “spoon full of sugar” to obfuscate their dangerous dereliction of duty. pic.twitter.com/xjfW5nBubm

“You know, Secretary Mayorkas said that he is effectively controlling the border, that the policies aren’t contributing to the surge, nothing to see here… don’t worry American people, I’ve got you. And those of us paying attention know that it is a disaster. We just hit the record-high ever number of those coming over our border last month. And if Title 42 goes away in less than a week, it will more than double that number. Over 500,000 people a month,” she pointed out.
“So, they knew. They’d already told Border Patrol not to talk to media a year ago when the numbers had risen to 172,000 a month. Now that they see these numbers they came up with this idea that let’s do this Disinformation Board and in his words to address migration, to try and see if we can snow the American people, and I think, you know, Americans have had enough. I’ve had enough as an attorney general who’s had to stand up and push back on this nonsense, this overreaching by this administration to destroy our institutions,” Moody declared.
“I think you’re gonna see a November like you have never seen because no longer are we letting them push this down into our states,” she contended, referring to the upcoming midterm elections.
Former Vice President Biden's Disinformation Board is as un-American as employing vote harvesting schemes to win an election.

“Yeah, I think you’re right there. I think November is going to be a bloodbath for the Dems. But the White House has their own explanation as to what happened,” Piro stated and then played a clip from White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.
“Yes, the board is pausing in the sense that it will not convene,” Jean-Pierre said during a press conference.
“The Department of Homeland Security, they began their statement repeating that the board had been intentionally mischaracterized,” she continued. “It was never about censorship, policing speech, or removing content from anywhere.”
It is not enough to simply pause the Disinformation Governance Board. This entire concept must be wholly abandoned. We must question the the wisdom of those who envisioned this monster. And we must not abdicate our commitment to truly free speech in this nation.

“Alright, so bear with me here. The White House Board on Disinformation failed because of disinformation. AG Moody, if it had been so good at ferreting out disinformation, wouldn’t it have been able to deal with this problem of disinformation and thereby continue to survive? I mean none of this makes sense,” Piro pointed out.
“Well, you miss the statement where they said this is because of mischaracterizations of outside forces. Outside forces. I’m sorry… are outside forces the other elected officials that have pledged to protect our states and our security? Are the outside forces the American people? Because the White House needs to remember the government, this administration, is merely the ‘we the people.’ And of course, we’re gonna push back when they start doing things like this, pushing disinformation about a disaster and a mishandling of the border. Yeah, of course, we’ll continue to be forces and push back,” Moody responded.
