Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) destroyed the Biden regime’s truth commission during a Senate hearing on Wednesday featuring U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas.
Paul hammered Mayorkas and the Biden administration for having the nerve to create a so-called “Disinformation Governance Board” when the U.S. government itself is the top purveyor of lies in the world.
“Here’s the problem: we can’t even agree what disinformation is,” Paul stated. “You can’t even agree if it was disinformation that the Russians fed information to the Steele dossier.”
“If you can’t agree to that, how are we ever going to come to an agreement on what is disinformation, so that you can police it on social media?” Paul pondered.
“Do you know who the greatest propagator of disinformation in the history of the world is? The US government!” he added.
Paul brought up the lies that led to the Vietnam War that were exposed in the Pentagon Papers, the false notion of Iraq having Weapons of Mass Destruction, and the Iran-Contra affair where weapons were funneled to Iran illegally to fund terror groups in Nicaragua as instances where the federal government blatantly deceived the American people to push their illicit agenda.
“I mean, think over all the debates and disputes we’ve had over the last 50 years in our country. We work them out by debating them. We don’t work them out by the government being the arbiter,” Paul said.
“I want you to have nothing to do with speech… You think the American people are so stupid they need you to tell them what the truth is?” he added.

Liberty Conservative News has reported on other times that Sen. Paul has taken the Biden regime to task:
“After making a statement that made many foreign policy onlookers freak out this past weekend, President Joe Biden was rightly excoriated by many figures in the Republican Party for suggesting that regime change is in the cards for Russia.
At a press conference on March 29, 2022, Biden doubled down on his previous comment that Putin “cannot remain in power” and indicated that it was not a gaffe.
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, who is a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, was highly critical of Biden’s remarks.
On “Jesse Watters Primetime”, Paul said that Biden’s escalatory comments are frightening US allies and strategic partners. Jesse Watters called attention to how the French government has pushed back against Biden for his comments.
“I wouldn’t use this type of wording because I continue to hold discussions with President Putin,” French President Emmanuel Macron stated on March 27 on French TV. “We want to stop the war that Russia has launched in Ukraine without escalation — that’s the objective.”
Paul reiterated that he and the majority of his congressional colleagues aren’t trying to remove Putin from power, which Fox News noted “has been in the positions of power, either as prime minister or president, since 1999.”
“A lot of times when you’re around somebody who’s in cognitive decline, you find yourself trying to help them with a sentence, trying to help them complete it… but we shouldn’t have to do that for the commander-in-chief,” he stated.
“And, it is actually a national security risk because he’s sending signals that no one in their right mind would want to send to Russia at this point. We aren’t trying to replace Putin in Russia. We aren’t trying to have regime change. We’re not sending troops into Ukraine, and we’re not going to respond in kind with chemical weapons,” Paul continued. The Kentucky senator was referencing the two statements Biden made during a visit to Poland last week. The White House subsequently played damage control and tried to walk back Biden’s pro-regime change comments.”
Paul always the makes the most of his bully pulpit in the U.S. Senate. The authoritarian policies against free speech from the Biden regime are repugnant.
