Sen. Hawley: DHS’s ‘Disinformation Governance Board’ Seeks to Target Musk’s Twitter, Maintain Dems’ Control of Social Media

“This is dangerous and un-American. The board should be immediately dissolved,” Hawley tells Mayorkas.

Announced shortly after free-speech advocate Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter, DHS’s new ‘Disinformation Governance Board’ seeks to maintain Democrats’ power to censor conservative and dissenting speech, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) tells Department of Homeland Security Sec. Alejandro Mayorkas in a letter published Thursday.

“The Administration that activated the FBI against parents at school board meetings now has created a government Disinformation Board to monitor all Americans’ speech. It’s a disgrace. Joe Biden & Secretary Mayorkas: dissolve this monstrosity immediately,” Hawley tweeted, posting a copy of the letter.

“This new board is almost certainly unconstitutional and should be dissolved immediately,” Sen. Hawley says in the letter to Sec. Mayorkas:

“I confess, I at first thought this announcement was satire. Surely no American Administration would ever use the power of Government to sit in judgement on the First Amendment speech of its own citizens. Sadly, I was mistaken.

Ann Coulter: Liberal Doomsday Scenario: Free Speech on Twitter

I want to send flowers and chocolates to the Twitter employee who permanently suspended The Babylon Bee. Maybe a car. Apparently, it was the inanity of that decision that incensed Elon Musk, whereupon he decided to purchase the entire platform to stop the censorship.

Liberals, until five minutes ago: Elon Musk is a climate hero! Electric cars! Solar power! He loves Obama!

Liberals, five minutes ago: He believes in free speech? Fascist!

Loads of liberals are threatening to leave Twitter if Musk’s deal goes through. To those who will miss the New York Times’ Charles Blow, I understand. I will try to ease the pain by tweeting, every day for the rest of my life: “[FILL IN THE BLANK] is racist!”

If you’re wondering why liberals are freaking out over the idea of free speech on one single internet platform, it’s because their ideas are so well thought-out and compellingly argued that they must have total control of all social media, mainstream media, entertainment, elementary schools, colleges, universities, nonprofits, corporate PR departments, government funding agencies, advertising firms and on and on and on. Any interruption to Big Brother being pumped into our brains 24 hours a day, and everything falls apart.

Tito Ortiz: ‘I’m an American, I’m Fighting for My Kids’ (Audio)

He may no longer be in Huntington Beach, but a move to Florida and transition from the Octagon to the social media cage fight of culture and politics has made the “Huntington Beach Bad Boy” Tito Ortiz a “Bad Boy” in a whole new arena.

The MMA legend and no-nonsense, pro-American advocate joined host Alex Marlow on Friday’s edition of Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Daily, to discuss not only his time as an MMA fighter in the UFC Octagon, but also his passion and success in advocating for American values in the realm of politics.

“I’m not a right-winger,” Ortiz explained. “What I am is an American. I care about my children’s futures, my children’s friend’s futures, and just the freedoms we have in this country. And people say, ‘Right-wing, left-wing. You’re on the right, you’re on the left.’ No, I’m not. I’m strictly down the middle. I’m just a man who is fighting for his children, for their future, for school. We’re moving from Huntington Beach, California, because of how great a job DeSantis is doing there as governor, really protecting our children. I think that’s very, very important.”

Elon Musk says he has secured the money to buy Twitter

Musk also said in his filing that Twitter has not formally responded to his overtures. He “is seeking to negotiate a definitive agreement for the acquisition of Twitter,” the filing said, “and is prepared to begin such negotiations immediately.”

Elon Musk says he’s secured money for his bid to take Twitter private and is considering making his pitch directly to shareholders.

Musk, who recently became the social media company’s largest individual shareholder, told Twitter’s board last week he wanted to buy the entire company but he didn’t say how he would pay for it.

Now, in a new filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the billionaire Tesla CEO says he’s lined up $46.5 billion to fund his offer of $54.20 a share.

Morgan Stanley, Bank of America, and several other banks have promised to lend him $25.5 billion, according to the filing.

Musk, who is the richest person in the world, says he will cover the remaining $21 billion himself. Most of his wealth is tied up in shares of Tesla and SpaceX, the rocket company he also runs.

Twitter Rejects Musk Offer, So DeSantis and Musk Team Up to Make Twitter an Offer It Can’t Refuse

If Musk was some crazed leftist hell-bent on censoring more right-wing narratives, would Twitter be rejecting his proposal? Of course not.

Wildly popular Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis and self-made billionaire and entrepreneur Elon Musk are teaming up to take on one of the world’s most powerful social media platforms.

Musk’s recently announced he would be attempting to purchase 100 percent of Twitter in a bid to create a true free-speech platform. Musk offered to buy Twitter in its entirety at $54.20 per share, a 54 percent premium on the shares’ actual value. Twitter’s board of directors — which has led the company to adopt numerous left-wing-biased censorship policies — has fought back by initiating a “poison pill,” a method of diluting Musk’s shares in order to weaken his current standing.

Recent yet-to-be-confirmed reporting indicates that Musk is about to launch a countermove by teaming up with various additional investors. As it turns out, however, Musk already has allies in ownership. The state of Florida is a shareholder in the company through the state’s pension fund, and DeSantis is currently looking into what actions he can take to thwart the Twitter board’s “poison pill” effort.

WATCH: Kevin O’Leary Says Censorship Is Why Twitter Is at Bottom of Dante’s ‘Hell’

Shark Tank star Kevin O’Leary smacked the censor czars at Twitter for their abysmal performance, defended Elon Musk’s bid for owning the platform and stood up for free speech — all in under five minutes.

O’Leary slammed Big Tech censorship just days after Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced his $43 billion bid to buy out Twitter. O’Leary vigorously defended free speech on CNBC’s April 18 edition of Squawk Box. “[W]hen you start to try and figure out who should have a voice and who shouldn’t, you’re stepping on the basic principles of free speech in America. And that really doesn’t sit well with a majority of the population.”

He also argued that Twitter’s obsessive censorship agenda cost the company its bottom line. Twitter has become a “miserable investment” for shareholders, according to O’Leary. The reason the investing environment was so terrible? Too much censorship. “The reason this thing has underperformed is they’ve tried to do this curation by canceling voices and losing millions of followers. This is an abysmal performance.”
