1 – DeSantis Declares War Against Biden’s ‘Ministry of Truth’ At DHS
The Daily Caller reports: Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis vowed to fight the Biden administration’s proposed Disinformation Governance Board Friday, which he said was an attempt to censor ordinary people and impose narrative control.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced the formation of the board Wednesday, which will be run by Nina Jankowicz, a self-described “disinformation expert” who previously attempted to discredit the Hunter Biden laptop story. DeSantis promised to fight the board in a Friday press conference.
“You cannot have a Ministry of Truth in this country. And so let’s get real here,” DeSantis said. “We’re not gonna let Biden get away with this one, so we will be fighting back.”
Critics including DeSantis have compared the board to the “Ministry of Truth” in the novel “1984,” an agency that produces government propaganda and decides what citizens are allowed to say and believe.
The Biden Administration’s creation of a “disinformation” bureau within DHS is effectively a Ministry of Truth that is alien to our constitutional tradition.

Hey @JoeBiden, is this the kind of disinformation your Ministry of Truth will be looking at?

2 – Dow plunges 900 points and Nasdaq dives 4% to finish its worst month since the Great Recession as Amazon leads tech sector in brutal selloff
The Daily Mail reports: Losses for technology stocks accelerated on Wall Street Friday, pushing the Nasdaq composite to its biggest monthly loss since the 2008 financial crisis.
In a day of brutal selling, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 939 points, or 2.8 percent, ending April down nearly 5 percent for the month.
The S&P 500 notched its worst month since the beginning of the pandemic, losing 3.6 percent on Friday and nearly 9 percent since March.
But it was the tech-heavy Nasdaq that saw the most punishing losses, led by a 14 percent plunge in Amazon shares, marking the online retail giant’s steepest one-day drop since 2006.
The Nasdaq ended the session down 4.2 percent on the day and 13 percent in April, its worst monthly performance since the Great Recession.
U.S. stocks sunk Friday with the Nasdaq on pace for the worst month since 2008, as Amazon became the latest victim in the technology-led sell-off.

3 – Biden’s DHS chief fails to name single domestic terror, White supremacy case referred to DOJ
Fox News reports: Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas on Thursday failed to name a case of domestic terrorism that his department has referred to the Department of Justice.
Rep. Greg Steube, R-Fla., pressed Mayorkas for data on any referrals he has made to the DOJ on the grounds of domestic terrorism. Mayorkas did not offer the data, saying he would provide it after the hearing.
“Congressman, I will provide you with that information subsequent to this hearing,” Mayorkas replied to Steube. “I do not have that statistic. I will provide the data to you.”
The pair continued to clash on the subject, with Steube interrupting Mayorkas to demand he name one such case off the top of his head. Mayorkas continued to decline to answer.
