As I covered recently at PJ Media, the technocrat with the single most punchable face in world history, Antony Blinken, announced that the Biden administration now has at its fingertips a propriety AI tool to comb the web for something called “Russian disinformation.”

No word yet on when the AI to fight “US government disinformation” will be developed.

Via U.S. State Department (emphasis added):

“Russia continues to push a steady, relentless stream of disinformation about its war of aggression against Ukraine, to lie about and cover up horrific abuses it’s committed, to try to justify committing others.

In response, the State Department has developed an AI-enabled online Ukraine Content Aggregator to collect verifiable Russian disinformation and then to share that with partners around the world.  We’re promoting independent media and digital literacy.  We’re working with partners in academia to reliably detect fake text generated by Russian chatbots.”

This Orwellian development follows the release of the Durham report.

Via New York Post:

“The FBI investigation of former President Donald Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia in 2016 was “seriously flawed” and had no basis in evidence, special counsel John Durham said in a report released Monday.

Durham concluded his four-year review with a scathing indictment of official bias in the probe, which fueled Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage of Trump’s theorized conspiracy with the Kremlin to win the White House.

“It is the Office’s assessment that the FBI discounted or willfully ignored material information that did not support the narrative of a collusive relationship between Trump and Russia,” Durham wrote.”

In other words, totally incompetent, corrupt adult children who have proven time and time again that they shouldn’t be in charge of a popsicle stand now get to gallivant across the web with AI technologies they don’t understand quixotically hunting for “Russian disinformation.”

What could go wrong?
