To protest their discontent with Donald Trump, some people have taken to destroying the property of innocent business owners. While it is certainly a noble cause to protest one’s disapproval of the President-elect, as we have been doing here at the Free Thought Project, smashing things does nothing to get across one’s point.
Now, the peaceful protesters who set out to make a valid point are grouped in with the ones destroying property and all validity and credibility of their cause is now shattered.
Some 500 protesters were seen running through downtown Washington, with some breaking out and destroying property along the way. Naturally, this provoked a police state response and riot police are now going after ALL the protesters, not just the ones causing damage.
There have been several reports of journalists being detained and arrested as well. RT’s Alexander Rubinstein reported being hit with a flash grenade before he was arrested, along with others, while covering the protests.
The Free Thought Project has spoken with our reporter on the ground, Claire Bernish, and she remains out of harm’s way for now.
As the inauguration officially gets underway, DC is in utter chaos as riot cops deploy tear gas and kettle protesters.

Question -- What is the goal of this website? Why do we share different sources of information that sometimes conflicts or might even be considered disinformation? 
Answer -- The primary goal of Stillness in the Storm is to help all people become better truth-seekers in a real-time boots-on-the-ground fashion. This is for the purpose of learning to think critically, discovering the truth from within—not just believing things blindly because it came from an "authority" or credible source. Instead of telling you what the truth is, we share information from many sources so that you can discern it for yourself. We focus on teaching you the tools to become your own authority on the truth, gaining self-mastery, sovereignty, and freedom in the process. We want each of you to become your own leaders and masters of personal discernment, and as such, all information should be vetted, analyzed and discerned at a personal level. We also encourage you to discuss your thoughts in the comments section of this site to engage in a group discernment process.
