The Department of Homeland Security announced on Wednesday the formation of a new ‘Disinformation Governance Board.’ Its goal will be to end the spread of disinformation that affects ‘public trust in our democratic institutions,’ the department announced. But it's too bad this 'disinformation board' wasn’t available a few years ago — or even a few months ago, Glenn says. That way, it could've caught all the leftist LIES our nation has had to endure…lies like Black Lives Matter's 'peaceful' protests, Trump collusion with Russia, and Brett Kavanaugh's high school past...right?!
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
GLENN: So, Stu, my goodness. How excited were you, when you heard Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas talk about the new DHS disinformation governance board?
STU: Oh, I was thrilled. I was thrilled.
Any time I hear anything from Mayorkas, my favorite Greek yogurt.
GLENN: Yeah. I eat that too.
STU: Yeah, it's really good. Yeah, every time. It's a little chunky.
But lots of protein. Very healthy.
GLENN: Uh-huh. Uh-huh.
STU: Everything he does is good for you.
GLENN: Yeah. No misinformation there.
STU: No. And this is what we've always needed. People get confused at times. I don't know if you've noticed this in our history. A disagreement on different topics.
What is true? What isn't? And what's the best approach.
GLENN: And the government should decide this.
STU: So we don't have to have all these arguments.
GLENN: Amen, brother. Amen.
So, you know, we wouldn't have had this problem, if Lincoln just would have had a disinformation board.
GLENN: He could have just -- he could have just arrested and silenced or killed all those people that was like saying all these untruths about slavery.
STU: Right. Obviously, I think if there was a disinformation board back in the day. They would have been saying that slavery was good. And Lincoln was wrong. Forget about that for a second. Talk about how they've now evolved.
GLENN: No. Lincoln didn't really care about the slaves.
STU: No. Right. Right.
GLENN: So I'm really glad. Because if we had this disinformation board. They're going to be able to stop things like the Russian collusion story. That went on for four years. If we would have the Department of Homeland Security. They would have said, no. No, guys. That's not true. In fact, the FBI has been altering documents and lying to the FISA court. You know, the secret court. They've been lying to them. So that's not true. So don't report that. So that would have been good. Or the Steele dossier. And golden shower. And all of that. They would have said, no, no, no. The DHS has just come out, and Steele has been discredited by the FBI. And he's making all this stuff up. And here's the evidence of it. Or like the, Donald Trump has seven hours missing on January 6th, on his phone logs. Could have added that. Or the laptop was not real. Or it was not real. Then it was stolen, so we can't report on it, because it was stolen. Which none of that was true. Then it was a Russian op. And that wasn't true. And now it's all about Hunter. And has nothing to do with Joe. Which is not true now.
So the DHS could stop that. You know, wouldn't that be great?
Oh, man. If they could have been around when the disinformation of, if you like your health care, you can keep it. Wouldn't that have been great, if the government could have had that disinformation stopped?
STU: It's weird. Because Obama had a version of this, in his campaign. Remember this?
GLENN: No. Uh-uh.
STU: Yeah. They had a disinformation, quick response team.
GLENN: Oh, that's right.
STU: That would step out. And make sure that whatever the lies were like.
GLENN: But see. That wasn't run by the DHS.
STU: Yeah. You have to be in the government.
GLENN: That might have stopped Ben Rhodes from lying about the Iran Deal. And getting it done. And then coming out and saying, yeah, I lied about that Iran thing, to be able to get that thing done. Or the lies about the mask. That the government was proud of lying about it.
I mean, it was a noble lie. It was a noble lie. Now, I don't know if the DHS will stop noble lies.
STU: I don't know if they will do that.
GLENN: There's a difference. Or the voting rights bill. Man, wouldn't it be great, if the DHS would have had this disinformation service. And they could have stopped all the people in the government and the press, saying that the voting rights bill is to stop black people from voting? Wouldn't that have been great. We need this so bad. We do. Or the Wuhan lab, that that leaked. It could absolutely, definitely, could not -- don't even talk about it. Not a possibility.
STU: Not a possibility. Impossible. And that comes -- you know that one is definitely true. Because it came from the people who did it. That's how you know. They said they didn't do it. And they were the ones who had to have done it. It's when you ask -- you ask O.J. Simpson. A book saying, if he did it --
GLENN: He outlined.
STU: But he says, he didn't do it. He's the expert. He was there.
GLENN: Were you there? He was there. Or in his case, not there.
STU: In his specific case, not there.
GLENN: And with the Wuhan lab, they were there or not there. So they would know.
STU: Find the expert. Who is the expert on O.J. Simpson murdering Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman? O.J. Simpson.
GLENN: Oh, man. Imagine the DHS, if they could have stopped -- remember the Obama cages that they didn't report on, said they didn't exist? But did, you know, at the border. And then they said that Trump built those cages. And we have cages now, and they say those are not cages. Imagine if we could stop the misinformation there. Or the horsewhipping guys. That would have been a good one to stop. Or Brett Kavanaugh is a rapist. Oh, can you imagine if they could have stopped that disinformation?
Or the new one now, I like this. The trans care for kids is reversible. Or could we please cut one here. Here's a teacher about being very, very careful about what we teach our kids. Listen to this.
VOICE: Two other trans-identified high school teachers put together a language guide. Our site is called genderinclusivebiology.com. And some things that we come up with a lot, for teaching about cell division or reproduction. A lot of textbooks. A lot of existing teaching say, well, women produce eggs. Males are more likely to be colorblind. The mother carries the fetus for this many months. And some ways we can show our support for trans and non-binary students, just to clean up that language. You can be more accurate and be more inclusive. I would say, it's not women that produce eggs. It's ovaries that produce eggs. That's accurate. That's precise. We're acknowledging that not all women produce eggs, and also not all egg producers are women, for example.
GLENN: Women. Yeah.
VOICE: And we're teaching students, language matters.
STU: You are saying that. I will say, they are teaching students that language matters.
GLENN: Yes, they are. And, you know, not all women produce eggs. Okay. True.
STU: Yeah. That's true.
And what was the other one.
STU: Not all egg producers are women.
GLENN: Are women. We should call the DHS on that one.
GLENN: Yeah. I don't know. A, can you imagine if we had the DHS on the BLM peaceful protests?
STU: That would be --
GLENN: Or the fact that they raised millions and millions of dollars, and then just stole the money?
STU: They bought some nice real estate. I wouldn't say stole --
GLENN: Yeah. You're right. You're right. Imagine having DHS if they were there to say, hey. Hey. Hey. That's not what Trump said about Charlottesville or the Nazis. That would have been. Or the horse dewormer thing, or injecting bleach. Or calling him a white supremacist. And everything he does is hate speech, and trying to -- all of that. That would be wow.
Or inflation and gas it prices, caused by Putin. That would be -- we should get the DHS on that one.
STU: Uh-huh. I'm sure they'll be all over it.
GLENN: Think about that. That's a long list. That was me just five minutes before we went on. I would like to open up the phones today. Today is the day you talk whatever you would like to talk about. I would love to hear if you actually got on your zoning board. Or if you're running for -- I would like to hear some local success stories. If you have any.
You know, give me hope for the love of God. But can you fill out that list? That's a pretty comprehensive list. That should be five minutes.
STU: Oh, yeah, it's not full. But you have a lot on there for five minutes.
GLENN: For five minutes. So DHS yesterday, in case you haven't heard, has come out and said that they have a disinformation Homeland Security governance board.
And there really -- they're very concerned about the minority communities. Very concerned about the minority communities.
And so -- because that's really where the disinformation is happening. Don't you think, Stu? Spanish language, disinformation campaigns.
I got to tell you, I'm in these secret G.O.P. meetings all the time.
STU: Right. Right.
GLENN: The star chamber. And we talk about it all the time. But we speak in Angolan. Because nobody speaks that on the left. So it's the ultimate white language. And anyway, we're speaking in Angolan, and we have been plotting to just take over -- you know, continue our takeover of the Spanish language channels. You know, Univision. It's ours. It's ours. We've done this for a long time.
STU: Really? It doesn't seem like it's --
GLENN: That's our disinformation campaign. So, anyway, they're concerned about that. They're concerned about disinformation about the border. And about Russia.
Okay? They're very concerned about those two things. Oh. And -- and inflation.
So they're going to be looked into those -- aren't those things that maybe everybody is going to be talking about during the election?
I'm just saying. By the way, Nina Jankowicz is going to be the -- the head of the disinformation center for the DHS.
And she's great. Well, she was the one who said, hey. This laptop thing, that's Russian disinformation. So she knows it.
STU: Yeah. Didn't she call it a Trump product?
GLENN: Yeah. A Trump product. A Trump product. You know, the other thing I really like about her. And I'll get into this later, if you really want to. But she's on the board of trustees for the Eurasia Foundation, and is a global fellow.
I'm not going to need to say anymore than this.
She's also a global fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center. So, I mean, what else could you ask for?
STU: That is so perfect! I can't even -- as if they designed the story for us.
GLENN: Yep! Yep!
Okay. So there you have it, gang. Welcome to it. We're going to make sure that you get the right information. Until DHS, you know, shuts everybody down.
But it will be Elon Musk that's responsible for it.
