LTRP Note: The following two news stories (and two more links below the stories) from NON-mainstream media are posted for research and informational purposes and to issue a warning to our readers to use discerning wisdom and judgment when choosing which media outlets to listen to during these challenging and perilous times. Remember, things are not always as they seem, and mainstream media has proven it cannot be trusted.
Story #1: “Media Falsely Claimed Violent Riots Were Peaceful And That Tear Gas Was Used Against Rioters”
By Mollie Hemingway
Following days of violent riots and looting in cities across the country, Washington, D.C., announced a 7 p.m. curfew on Monday night. About the same time, President Donald Trump addressed the nation from the Rose Garden. Afterward, he walked through Lafayette Park to St. John’s Episcopal Church, which rioters had set on fire the night before. Standing before the church sign, which reads “All are welcome,” President Trump, who previously said he’d be paying his respects to a very special place, held up a Bible.
The speech announcing the country would return to rule of law and protection of civil liberties, the walk through a park that the night before had been given over to rioters, and the visit to the vandalized historic church where every president has worshiped since James Madison, were reassuring to many in the country. . . .
Every single major media outlet falsely reported that Park Police were unprovoked when they used “tear gas” to clear the area. If any of that were true, it might mark the first time in history that cops without gas masks launched tear gas in an area that the president of the United States easily walked through minutes later.

Story #2: “The Nation Has Gone Mad”
By Tristan Justice
In case you had any doubt, yes, the nation has gone mad.
Last week, the death of a Minnesota black man named George Floyd ignited the worst outbreak of civil disobedience in recent history plunging a nation already under lockdown stress further into anarchy as angry rioters take to the streets terrorizing American cities in the name of social justice.
Floyd’s death at the knees of a Minneapolis police officer caught on tape was clearly unjust, rightfully setting off a wave of anger over the killing of a black civilian who appeared to be no threat. As the protests got underway however, demonstrations quickly took a darker turn in a nation grappling with record levels of unemployment and an ongoing public health pandemic. With more than 40 million unemployed Americans roaming the streets of a country fatigued under 10-week lockdowns, a nation that has been increasingly convinced by a Left-wing movement that it is irredeemably racist and full of white supremacists was primed for the storm of civil unrest it is now suffering.
