Boebert Calls on GOP Leaders to Defund Biden’s Disinfo Board

'Mayorkas, stop acting like a dictator and try acting like you give a darn about the safety and security of your fellow Americans...'

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado has introduced legislation to end President Joe Biden’s newfound Disinformation Governance Board, Western Journal reported.

In an interview on Fox News, Bobert slammed the move the Biden administration, saying they are using George Orwell’s 1984, “not as a warning, but as a guide.”

This kind of stuff is terrifying. We in Congress have the power of the purse. It is our duty to shut down this department immediately,” Boebert said. “I’m calling on leadership in the Republican Party—Leader [Kevin] McCarthy, Whip [Steve] Scalise and others—to join me in calling for this department to be shut down and defunded.”

“No tax dollars should go to where Biden can use the power of the federal government to silence truthful stories like Big Tech did with the Hunter Biden story,” Boebert said.

“To say that the federal department has a say in what’s right and what’s wrong. What’s truth and what is not. This is a very dangerous place that we’ve come to.”

Boebert also released a video explaining her thoughts on the board and calling for the impeachment of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

“Here’s an idea, instead of trying to pull from the playbook of Stalin and Mao, how about securing our southern border so we don’t have 3 million illegal aliens invading our country? How about building a wall so we don’t have mobile morgues filled with dead migrant bodies?” she said .

“Mayorkas, stop acting like a dictator and try acting like you give a darn about the safety and security of your fellow Americans.

Other Republicans have come out against the board citing concerns around the motivations behind it, which, according to Mayorkas, could be anything from fighting Spanish-language disinformation at the southern border to fighting Russian disinformation.
