Biden’s DHS and Election Disinformation: A Coordinated Effort to Suppress Free Speech

Biden’s DHS and Election Disinformation: A Coordinated Effort to Suppress Free Speech

In the wake of the 2020 presidential election, questions surrounding the integrity of the electoral process surfaced. While the nation awaited the results, allegations of disinformation campaigns and censorship emerged, casting a shadow over the democratic process. Recently, revelations have come to light, suggesting that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) under President Joe Biden played a role in these controversial efforts. In this article, we will explore how Biden’s DHS attempted to influence the 2020 election by spreading disinformation and suppressing free speech.

This is perhaps the most clear smoking gun possible of illegal election interference by the Democratic Party.

One of the key players in this unfolding saga is the Election Integrity Partnership (EIP), a coalition of federal agencies, universities, and big tech companies. House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan, a Republican from Ohio, has raised concerns that this partnership worked in tandem to monitor and censor Americans’ speech in the lead-up to the 2020 election. Jordan’s interim staff report from the House Judiciary Committee highlights how the federal government, universities, and social media giants pressured platforms like Facebook and Twitter to label conservative viewpoints as “misinformation” while leaving liberal narratives largely untouched.

The report further reveals that the EIP, coordinated by DHS’s Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the State Department’s Global Engagement Center (GEC), focused its efforts on silencing conservative voices, particularly those of prominent figures like former President Donald Trump, Senator Thom Tillis, and Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene. Not only were influential politicians in the crosshairs, but conservative commentators and everyday Americans of all political affiliations found themselves subjected to suppression.

The “Switchboarding” Tactic

EIP employed a tactic known as “switchboarding” to facilitate the removal of content flagged by state and local officials from social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. These efforts were allegedly coordinated with DHS’s CISA, as revealed in emails obtained by the House Judiciary Committee. While CISA maintained that its actions were “voluntary” and that it did not have the power to remove content, the implied threat of sharing information with law enforcement or intelligence agencies loomed large.

Connections to Media Monitors

These revelations bear striking resemblance to previous efforts by the U.S. government to fund media monitors like NewsGuard and GDI. Both entities, supported by grants from the State Department and Pentagon, have been criticized for allegedly favoring liberal media outlets and discrediting conservative sources. The impact of their rankings on ad agencies has led to the blocking of conservative media from airing advertisements, further stifling their voices.

Stanford’s Role in Censorship

Stanford University’s involvement in the EIP raises additional concerns. The Stanford Internet Observatory (SIO), led by Alex Stamos, former Chief Security Officer at Facebook, played a pivotal role in coordinating efforts between local election officials, DHS, and social media platforms. Stamos has testified that CISA’s coordination with law enforcement agencies posed a potential threat to free speech.

The revelations surrounding Biden’s DHS and its alleged involvement in spreading disinformation and suppressing free speech in the lead-up to the 2020 election raise significant questions about the corruption of government agencies to shape public discourse to favor a political party.

The next question is this: Given evidence that the FBI and Department of Justice have also demonstrated that they are puppets of the Democrat Party, how will we investigate this? How will we ever know the truth?

    The main question spewed from this story is whether Oliver is indeed, dumber than a brick OR that Oliver thinks you are? One thing is certain: If Gilbertson is paying for this horse-like-shit, he should get a refund. Don’t be leery about that or you will be spanked.

    It’s titled: BIDEN’S DHS AND ELECTION DISINFORMATION: A COORDINATED EFFORT TO SUPPRESS FREE SPEECH. I guess that means it’s Biden’s DHS, they coordinated to suppress information in a manner producing disinformation. Bad ju ju that Biden do.

    But wait, there’s more

    “In the wake of the 2020 presidential election, questions surrounding the integrity of the electoral process surfaced” and it was called The Big Lie and it has been proven as the convicted guilty start to stack up in Georgia.

    “revelations have come to light, suggesting that”

    1. the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) under President Joe Biden played a role in these controversial efforts.
    2. how Biden’s DHS attempted to influence the 2020 election by spreading disinformation and suppressing free speech.
    3. This is perhaps the most clear smoking gun possible of illegal election interference by the Democratic Party.

    Check my math, but before 2021, was not DHS under the firm leadership of Donald J. Trump? Was not Joe Biden, just ordinary citizen from Delaware? None of the sources conflate the evidence like Oliver to implicate Biden in the orchestration of DHS efforts. He stands alone in his wild visions of Biden ruling DHS under the Trump Presidency. Oh my, DHS, FBI, DOJ, NSA, CIA, IRS, everything except SCOTUS is plotting against you. Only Newsmax is safe harbor……. Sigh.

    Oliver does not mention that the practice was abandoned years ago as noted on the record in Congressional testimony.

    Maybe the real problem here is that Republicans lie whenever it is legal to do so, like in this story. And weak, profit-grubbing, organizations like PBP allow tis shit to run because they can do with the money, they are so wiped out with things as they are…..
    This story is a blatant lie. Oliver’s conclusions have no plausibility or basis in reality. At least if you believe in time and not time travel.

    BUSTED

    But the best is Oliver’s: “Given evidence that the FBI and Department of Justice have also demonstrated that they are puppets of the Democrat Party, how will we investigate this? How will we ever know the truth?” terming that most American institutions are corrupt tools of the Democrats? I guess he missed the part that this all comes from Jordan’s investigation that I guess Oliver has already deemed impotent, like it’s leaders, or like Trump who was impotent to stop it during his one-term, twice-impeached, now indicted on 91 charges King of All Things.

    I gotta say: Oliver tops Horist for comedy sketch. Didn’t think it could be done, but this one was fun. The guy couldn’t pitch an easier softball.

      Really, Republicans Lie.
      Once again Frank it is easy to just spout some facts.
      Are you forgetting all the Facts about this administration.
      I will not bore you with the facts as you are one of the Sheeple that will do what ever the all might Biden says to do
      and not question weather you should be doing it.
      If I were a crooked president like Biden I would give you a Medal!
      Then I would hire you for CNN, after all no one is as boring as you!
      Keep up the good work as you make the rest of us seem smarter!
      Thank you for that.
      So sorry, see Oliver has a column and you do not!

      • Frank stetson

        So Darren has no factoids to dispute any of the factoids I presented.

        Thanks for the support.

        Oh yeah, psssst, don’t you know? Soros has dough…..he buys lots of things. Pays by the word 😉

        • Dan tyree

          You have no factoids. Just fracturds

          • Lisel Sipes

            Hahahahahahaha

      • Tom

        Yet Darren I feel compelled to inform you that an analysis of over 25,000 statements by Trump during his four years reveals that 72% were some form of mistruth. Sad (as Trump would say), very sad.

        This Forbes article (Forbes is Center to Right Wing business) they say the following: “In his first 100 days, President Trump had 29 statements assessed by PolitiFact (17 false) compared to 12 statements from President Obama (1 false) and 4 statements from President Biden (2 false). As a raw count, Trump told more falsehoods than Biden and Obama combined. ”

        Yes Republicans lie, and lie a lot! See full article at *https://www.forbes.com/sites/davidmarkowitz/2021/04/30/who-lied-more-during-their-first-100-days-biden-trump-or-obama/?sh=6a6e057c1a89*

      Maybe Oliver is a student of the PBP School of Touching! I agree with many of your points. Too many weasel words and phrases in this article to bother responding much more than what I did.

    Either Dan is the worst writer imaginable, or just plain stupid. In looking at this tome the reader is led to believe that Biden was in charge of DHS prior to the election, and thus was providing misinformation to the electorate leading up to trumps defeat. Another amazing trick by Biden-he is too senile to ever have a sensible thought, or he is the most crafty person to inhabit the WH-even before he was elected! Amazing the BS that is allowed to be published on the windbag post….

  3. Tom

    Hmmm, Jim Jordan? Wasn’t he the ultra right dude that could not even get enough votes from his own peeps to win the Speaker of the House job? A quality article about him cannot use his report as evidence. Its tainted. Discard.

    Hmmm, ” the implied threat of sharing information with law enforcement or intelligence agencies loomed large. Implied threat??? That means there is no evidence that the threat is real. Where is the real threat? Discard!

    “Beared striking resemblance” is a weasel that says it was not the same. So why believe it? Discard!

    “posed a potential threat to free speech.” is not the same as threatening free speech. Posed means it may or may not be a problem depending on conditions being acted upon. So discard this phrase!

    ” alleged involvement in spreading disinformation” means they really do not have any evidence that there was involvement. It is nothing more than opinion. Discard!! I can allege that Horist touches himself every time before he trashes Frank. But it’s only an allegation, I have no proof even if it does seem likely! Trash alleged!!!

    This article is loaded with too many weasel words and phrases to take seriously! Writer or AI needs to try harder to convince this Independent/Unaffiliated voter. And that is a fact you can count on!

    • Frank stetson

      Gee, he had me at time travel. Bully for you Tom to read on! 👍

      No Jim Jordan, the blind wrestling coach who couldn’t notice the head coach groping, grooming, and guzzling all the young boys.who couldn’t count the votes so he had them vote again, and again, and then one more in secret……so he could make his enemies list like Trump….. that jim Jordan.

    WOW – there is a lot of poison squirted around – but mostly from where it started here: from Frankie Boy.
    And he lodges the “misinformation center” on “Trump’s side of the not so true line”, because, 2016-20, he was President.
    NOW, LET US GET THAT RIGHT: from 2009 to 2015 THIS WAS OBAMA’S SO-CALLED DEMOCRAT REGIME
    [the same that donated to us the wars in Libya (with his Jihad friends), Syria (with arming ISIS), and Ukraine (with 9 years war, so far]
    WITH A TOTAL PARTY OVERHAUL OF STATE ORGANISATIONS LIKE DoJ, LAW OFFICERS (corrupt DAs) SECURITY SERVICES,
    AND AN ARMY OF BIG MONEY (ZUCKERBERG, GATES, etc, etc. READ TIME magazin of 16 Feb 2021 and you’ll know!
    PLUS 90% OF PRESS, NEWS AND INFORMATION- PLUS 95% OF THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY –
    THAT IS MORE THAN HITLER EVER HAD UNDER HIS COMMAND! BUT THE SAME TECHNIQUE!
    IT DID CONSTRUCT A “MiniTruth” Organization like in Orwell’s DYSTOPIA ‘1984’ – AND WE STILL HAVE IT!
    THAT, and as I said above, A PERVERTED LAWS DEPARTMENT, plus a “DEEP STATE” Civil Service
    PLUS WAR MONGERING – SUCCESSFUL WAR THREAT MANAGEMENT AND PRACTICE
    – WHAT DOES ANYONE EXPECT?
    And it’s NOT EVEN OUR WARS!
    We LET OTHERS DIE FOR … FOR WHAT?
    EXPORTING MILITARY HARDWARE:
    GOOD FOR SOME – BUT NOT FOR NORMAL PEOPLE!
    And FOR OUR ALLIES? – NO, FOR WEAKENING THEM DOWN!
    FOR A SAFER WORLD? – NO: FOR ANOTHER WORLD WAR!
    There are too many Frank Stetsons and other Herr Goebbels around
    -like the Nazi-Bandera-Lovers in Ukraine, and that NEW BABY-HEROD in Gaza-
    LET US COME BACK TO OUR SENSES AND A BIT OF MORALITY!

    Jboo: so, Biden laid the plan to screw Donald J Trump in 2009-2015, with DHS, like sleeper agents, that suddenly became “woke” in 2019, to do Biden’s bidding because Biden knew in 2015 that he would be running in 2020.

    Yeah, that’s plausible. Maybe it did happen exactly that way.

    Still makes you wonder if Don didn’t know about this one, then what else didn’t Don know? How many agencies were doing Biden’s bidding all during Trump’s reign? What else did Don not control but was responsible for? How many other Biden agents were in Trump’s employ? Bill Barr’s on the list. So is Meadows. All his lawyers in Georgia are on the list…. I mean the shit Don did not know, it’s YUGE.

    Vote Don, he knows nothing.

  1. There you go again raking up stories about obscure democrats who are of small consequence in the larger American political…
