After four years of hearing that Donald Trump is an authoritarian dictator and the biggest threat to freedom of the press ever – and hearing it from media outlets that attacked him publicly and relentlessly, with no fear of ever being censored, imprisoned or shot, like, you know, a dictator would have – there now is a serious threat to freedom of the press. And it’s coming from the media’s “progressive” darling and Vogue cover model, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

The fascist fashionista and her “progressive” acolytes are pushing for the creation of a government Ministry of Truth to help “rein in” the press and combat “misinformation.” She said, “It’s one thing to have differentiating opinions but it’s another thing entirely to just say things that are false. So that’s something that we’re looking into.”

Of course, that presumes that in the realm of political opinion, you can make an objective judgement of what is “false” (of course, it’s always the ideas that whoever is in power disagrees with) and that comments she thinks are "false" aren't protected by the First Amendment.

I think that I can make a far better case than she can that most of what she believes in is false. We actually have a century’s worth of evidence that socialism inevitably leads to corruption, oppression and starvation. We can also judge whether leftist or conservative policies work better by just comparing how many people are moving from California to Texas to how many are going the other way. Even so, I would never tell her she’s not allowed to go on Twitter and spout uninformed nonsense about socialism. But I would like to retain the freedom to respond to it.

Read this New York Post article about this real threat to freedom of the press. And the Post should know, since their accurate scoop about Hunter Biden’s foreign money scandals was branded as fake news and blocked by social media and other news outlets seeking to influence the election – and it worked, as a poll found that up to 17% of Biden voters wouldn’t have supported him if they’d known some of the stories about him that were suppressed.

In a related story, watch the staff of Politico go absolutely bonkers at the news that conservative Ben Shapiro would guest-edit just one edition of its morning Playbook feature. Just as at the New York Times, they completely melt down at the prospect that someone who has a different viewpoint might be allowed to express it even once. “Tolerance, diversity and inclusion!”

    Ministry of Truth sounds like something right out of the Democrat's Bible, 1984. It also reminds me of the movie "Brazil".

    This is truly scary because now the inmates are running the insane asylum in D.C. Let's face it - if any such action was to actually go forward in Congress, all who participated in it would certainly be impeachable for violating the U.S. Constitution. Sadly, such a commission would go forward because there is not much restraining the Democrats right now.

    When is that woman up for re-election and is it even feasible that she would be defeated?

    She wouldn't know truth if it her in her ugly face.

    I have a really hard time believing anything that comes out of your mouth but it would be nice if you do the right thing and stand up and tell the truth because you know that thing about karma I’m sure it’s right around the corner waiting for you and your party you should be ashamed of yourself you know you could be the person that stand up and tell the truth

    Ministry of Truth...well now we know she's read one book at least.

    This sounds like Harry Potters Ministry of Truth. They jailed anybody who spoke against them.

    Not surprised that AOC wants a Minister of Truth. Even heard she picked out her primary choice. See her choice here: https://images.search.yahoo.com/search/images;_ylt=AwrJ6R.M5gRg2kAAywZXNyoA;_ylu=Y29sbwNiZjEEcG9zAzIEdnRpZAMEc2VjA3Nj?p=dolores+umbridge+pictures&fr=yset_chr_syc_hp-s

    I’d rather fund a Ministry of Silly Walks with our tax money.

    Governor,
    Ministry of Truth? Is this an alternate Hollywood make of a Harry Potter Movie or just a bad idea to control our Republic and disband our freedoms?

    AOC ASSUMES she will be part of a dem administration. Lucky for us God has different plans.
    this broad needs a cell in Bellevue. She just has no clue of that is.

    AOC should be locked up. She is seriously evil and sick. She is a big threat to America because her voice is loud and she captures the ignorant who love chaos.

    AOC and the truth, an oxymoron that tops all others!

    Revelation 13. The dragon gave power to the beast. 42 mos it was given power to do what ever including blaspheme God. All who worship the internet/ social media beast are not in the book of life. We are there Mike

    I wonder how long it will be before she will start having people call her "comrade?"

    Please God, let the census numbers get rid of her seat and send her back to the tavern.

    One thing someone who suffered under communism said:

    Communism does not lead to corruption. Communism IS corruption.

    So cortez is looking for a ministry of "truth"???? ---Who's 'Truth' would that be???
    sounds just like the Orwellian novel to me---she has a habit of plagiarizing all her "ideas" from someone else--"green" new deal??? -- it's FDR's new deal with the green slapped in front of it(so it could be said it was 'different')
    The socialist world domination has been at work since the 1900s--slow, steady progress--we are now seeing a little more clearly as to how it is being accomplished(trump blew that open for us--yet we still refuse to see the reality staring(or slapping) us in the face.

    Would any of these people know what the truth is? It seems that every time they open their mouth's the lies flow out like a river, I am not looking forward to the next four years. I am 92 years old and I would like the country back that I grew up in and that doesn't look like that is going to happen any time soon.

    My only question is WHY are we (some 70+Million Americans) doing nothing? It seems we put these traitors IN our government, WE should be capable of Firing them, tossing them out, recalling them, impeaching them FOR EXACTLY what they falsely accuse our President Trump of doing! Why are we standing by watching democrats eradicate our One Nation under God?
