(RoyalPatriot.com )- According to recent reports, Nina Jankowicz, who was supposed to head the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Disinformation Governance Board, has resigned from her role within the program, which has currently been put on hold.
In a resignation statement released by her spokesman and received by CNN, Jankowicz is quoted as saying that she has decided to return to the public realm because the future of the DHS board is currently uncertain.
She said that after six years of devoting her time to the study of disinformation and best practices in responding to it, she joined the Department of Homeland Security to be the executive director of the Disinformation Governance Board to support the Department’s important work addressing disinformation that affects the homeland.
She also said that since the work of the Board has been put on hold and its future is uncertain, she has decided to leave the Department of Homeland Security and resume her job in the public sector.
Jankowicz said that the board’s mischaracterizations had become a distraction from the Department’s critical work, which, in conjunction with recent events on a global and national scale, exemplifies why it is required.
She said It is to their most profound regret that this has happened. She will continue to be committed to raising people’s understanding of the dangers posed by disinformation, and she will have faith that the Department will do the same.
Her resignation declaration comes after a report in The Washington Post indicated that the Department of Homeland Security has temporarily halted the misinformation board due to widespread opposition. Individuals on Twitter referred to the board as the “Ministry of Truth,” referencing Orwell’s 1984 novel. Twitter users expressed joy over Jankowicz’s decision to quit. One candidate for the South Carolina House of Representatives described it as “a win for freedom and the American people.”
Benny Johnson of Turning Point USA expressed gratitude to Human Events’ Jack Posobiec for “inducing the collapse of Biden’s Ministry of Truth” due to his tweets.
