Abortive head of the Department of Homeland Security’s Orwellian “Disinformation Governance Board” Nina Jankowicz recently sat in for a fawning interview with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes who expressed heartfelt sympathy for the brutal online criticism Jankowicz faced from critics of this new Ministry of Truth. Jankowicz said she abhorred the online bullying and reported the death threats she received to the authorities, yet still described the harassment as “childish.” Jimmy and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald discuss Hayes’ performance as on-air therapist to an individual who was going to head up a major new Homeland Security department.

The announcement that the Department of Homeland Security would be launching its own Orwellian Ministry of Truth called the “Disinformation Governance Board” was met with scorn and hostility from critics across the political spectrum. Now the Board’s putative head, Nina Jankowicz, has submitted her resignation, the initiative has been put on ice and the Washington Post’s chief social media mean girl, Taylor Lorenz, has written an unhinged piece decrying the online bullying that sent the new agency packing. Jimmy talks to The Grayzone’s Max Blumenthal and American comedian Kurt Metzger about the rise and precipitous fall of this ill-advised government censorship project.

It’s no secret that the various tentacles of the United States’ military-industrial complex are all doing whatever they can to whip up interest in a war with China. The latest effort comes from NBC’s Meet the Press host Chuck Todd, who all but openly drooled during a segment imagining what a 2027 conflict between the two powers over a Chinese invasion of Taiwan might look like. Jimmy and The Grayzone’s Aaron Maté (https://mate.substack.com) discuss the growing fervor for war with China as some of the excitement over the Ukraine conflict begins to abate.

Flying under the radar and unbeknownst to most, the World Health Organization is quietly pursuing an international treaty that would hand national sovereignty over healthcare decisions to the unaccountable global body, allowing the WHO to unilaterally declare pandemics and impose responses on individual nations. Not surprisingly, major WHO funder Bill Gates is fully supportive of the idea. Jimmy and American comedian Kurt Metzger discuss the possible consequences of this treaty and how the Microsoft founder would benefit from its signing.

Reports have emerged that Scandinavian nations Finland and Sweden plan to break with their centuries-long tradition of neutrality to pursue membership in NATO. If the applications are successful, will this latest increase in NATO’s ranks create an increased deterrent to further war with Russia, or will it bring the world ever-closer to World War III? Jimmy and The Grayzone’s Aaron Maté (https://mate.substack.com) discuss the possibilities – and the dangers – of an ever-growing NATO on Russia’s doorstep.
