Since the violent protests and riots hit cities this spring, President Trump has been marking his re-election efforts with law and order in contrast to the Left’s lawlessness.
But the Fake News Media has been trying to downplay the violence, and outright deny its existence in many cases.
And the information on the Portland riots one insider shared is shocking the entire nation.
A reporter from the Associated Press, Mike Balsamo, recently broke news with his first-hand account of the Portland federal courthouse being defended by federal agents from violent rioters.
He took to Twitter to share his account, where he notes that “mortars were being fired off repeatedly.”
I spent the weekend inside the Portland federal courthouse w/ the US Marshals. Mortars were being fired off repeatedly, fireworks & flares shot into the lobby, frozen bottles, concrete, cans & bouncy balls regularly whizzed over the fence at high speeds. https://t.co/PU4xbzwniY

This first-hand account is a stark contrast from the narrative that the Fake News Media has been peddling that the protests were “mostly peaceful.”
Balsamo even went as far as to say this experience was “eye-opening” in terms of just how much violence he saw from the rioters.
And yet the Fake News Media is still trying to downplay it all.
The New York Times even tried “fact-checking” Attorney General William Barr for simply pointing out that the protests became violent to the House Judiciary Committee.
The Times tried to discredit him by saying the crowds were “largely peaceful.”
And then, as ABC put it, “a peaceful demonstration intensified.”
This has resulted in at least 28 federal agents suffering very significant injuries.
The Leftist media knows they can’t report the simple facts about the riots because it plays right into President Trump’s re-election campaign efforts based on law and order.
Millions of Americans all across the country are growing more and more concerned about the state of civil unrest and its effects on our society.
