(Natural News) To get an idea of how badly truth will fare in the hands of our elites, consider two recent media stories.
(Article by Jonathan Van Maren republished from LifeSiteNews.com)
In a particularly weird coincidence, the Biden Administration set up a “Disinformation Board” to combat “disinformation” at precisely the same time Elon Musk acquired Twitter in hostile takeover, promising to restore free speech and transparency to the platform. This new project was immediately compared to Orwell’s 1984 Ministry of Truth, which was promptly denied by the Biden Administration. (The best response headline: “‘There Is No Ministry of Truth,’ Minister of Truth Confirms.”)
Many also commented on the fact that the very Administration which insists that men can get pregnant and touts Rachel Levine (a man originally named Richard) as the highest-ranking “female” U.S. admiral has abandoned any credibility on the issue of disinformation. But even more hilariously, there’s a decent chance that there is a straight line from a joke made by The Babylon Bee naming Rachel Levine “Man of the Year” and Musk’s decision to buy Twitter. After The Bee had their account restricted over the joke, Musk contacted CEO Seth Dillon and reportedly told him that he might have to buy Twitter.
Which brings us to our next story. Admiral Levine, who serves in the Biden Administration as the assistant U.S. Secretary for Health, recently attacked Florida’s Surgeon General Joseph Ladopo for putting out a statement on April 20 noting that Florida would “clarify evidence recently cited on a fact sheet released by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.” Specifically, Ladopo noted that “[s]ystematic review on hormonal treatment for young people show a trend of low-quality evidence, small sample size, and medium to high risk of bias.”
Ladopo was responding to an HHS document which advocated for puberty blockers for children with gender dysphoria, stating in part: “For transgender and nonbinary children and adolescents, early gender-affirming care is crucial to overall health and well-being as it allows the child or adolescent to focus on social transitions and can increase their confidence while navigating the healthcare system.” Included in the recommended care in addition to puberty blockers were double-mastectomies, castrations, and full sex-change surgeries.
The HHS document is particularly egregious in light of a growing body of evidence that this ongoing medical experiment being performed on minors is physically destroying tens of thousands of children, with strong evidence that life-long medical patients are being created as a result. As Abigail Shrier pointed out in her must-read book Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters, most children with gender dysphoria grow out of it—and many of those experiencing it today are part of what Dr. Lisa Littman has referred to a “peer contagion.”
The Florida Department of Health noted this evidence: “A paper published in the?International Review of Psychiatry?states that 80% of those seeking clinical care will lose their desire to identify with the non-birth sex.”
The response of Biden’s highest-ranking transgender official was to accuse the Florida Department of Health of playing politics. Levine, in fact, decided to tell an obvious and easily disprovable lie on National Public Radio, stating that “there is no argument among medical professionals … about the value and importance of gender-affirming care,” and accusing Ladopo of issuing “a statement based on political considerations that is not appropriate.”
Speaking?to National Public Radio, Admiral Rachel Levine, the U.S. assistant secretary for health, used the opportunity to attack Florida’s surgeon general, Joseph Ladopo, an ally of Florida GOP Governor Ron DeSantis. Levine accused Ladopo of putting out “a statement based upon political considerations that is not appropriate.”
So let’s summarize for a moment. The Babylon Bee and other Twitter users get banned or restricted for pointing out, on a platform that amounts to the digital public square, that Mr. Levine is a man. Following that, the Biden Administration, which employs Levine, sets up a Ministry of Truth to combat disinformation. That same month, Levine condemns the Health Secretary of Florida for pointing out that it can be dangerous to offer sex changes and hormone treatments to children, and insists that, in his view, this is disinformation because all doctors agree with him (even though this is obviously not true.) Also, he says, call me ma’am!
Do you see the problem here?

Former Goldman CEO Warns of Potential Recession: ‘Very, Very High Risk Factor’
Appearing on CBS’s Face the Nation, former Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein warned the United States could plunge into a recession.
“Do you think we’re headed towards recession?” @margbrennan asks Goldman Sachs Senior Chairman Lloyd Blankfein amid U.S. inflation.
“It’s definitely a risk…If I were a consumer, I’d be prepared for it, but it’s not baked in the cake.” pic.twitter.com/IehxU4wSo6

A transcript is as follows:
MARGARET BRENNAN: Do you think we’re headed towards recession?
LLOYD BLANKFEIN: We’re certainly heading — it’s a very, very high risk factor. There’s a path, a narrow path, but I think the Fed has very powerful tools. It’s hard to finely tune them and hard to see the effects of them quickly enough to alter it. But I think they are responding well. It’s definitely a risk. If I was running a big company I would be very prepared for it. If I was a consumer, I would prepared for it. But it’s not baked in the cake.
White House Claims Baby Formula Shortage a Top Priority Since February After Joe Biden Claimed Ignorance of Problem
The White House claimed President Joe Biden’s administration made the baby formula shortage crisis a top priority as early as February, even though the president claimed ignorance of the problem on Thursday.
“This is something he is focusing on very acutely and again I said 24/7 we’ve been working on this since we have learned about this back in February,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said during the daily briefing about Biden, calling the issue “one of the presidents top priorities.”
Biden bristled when asked by reporters on Friday if he could have acted sooner to fix the crisis.
“If we had been better mind readers, I guess we could’ve, but we moved as the problem became apparent to us,” Biden said.
The president did not even personally mention the crisis until Friday, despite weeks of reports highlighting the problem.
“I’ll answer the baby formula question because, all of a sudden, it’s on the front page of every newspaper,” Biden grumbled on Friday.
He announced the launch of a new government website to help parents locate baby formula in stores, but it was beset by extremely long hold times and unhelpful information.
Jean-Pierre alluded to a comment from Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Bacerra claiming the Biden administration had been working on the issue since February and even as early as last year in 2021.
CNN: “You are satisfied with the government’s response throughout [the baby formula shortage]?”

“You’ve heard us talk about this, you’ve heard colleagues talking about what we have done since February,” Jean-Pierre said. “We’ve been working on this 24/7.”
Jean-Pierre refused to offer a timeline for when supplies of baby formula would return to normal.
“What I can say is there are a lot of dates floating around out there,” she said.
Joe Biden Botches Name of Hero Killed in Buffalo Shooting Aaron Salter Jr.
President Joe Biden struggled Monday with the correct pronunciation of the name of Aaron Salter Jr., a heroic ex-cop and security guard who died Saturday confronting the Buffalo mass shooting suspect.
“We pay tribute to all law enforcement officers and their families who understand what it takes, what’s at risk, to save and protect all of us,” Biden said. “That includes paying tribute to the Buffalo police officer Aaron Salder — Slater, excuse me — who gave his life trying to save others.”
Biden spoke about Salter during a Public Safety Officer Medals of Valor ceremony at the White House for law enforcement and public safety officials.
Salter was a Buffalo police officer for 30 years before retiring in 2022 and taking a security job at the Tops Friendly Market where the shooting took place.
Salter hit the alleged shooter with at least one round from his pistol, but it was blocked by the alleged shooter’s bulletproof armor. Salter was later shot and killed during the attack.
“You’re the heart and soul and very spine of this country and communities,” Biden continued, praising the public safety officials in the room.
During the ceremony, Biden also botched the name of Rep. Adriano Espaillat, a Democrat congressman from New York.
“Excuse me. You can call me ‘Bidden,’” Biden joked, mispronouncing his own name. “We’ve known each other so long and I still stumbled. I apologize.”
