Why TruthNotNarratives.com? Because when watching an episode of How to Get Away with Murder (Freakin’ Whack-a-Mole: Season 1, Episode 6) when the main character, Annalise Keating said: “The justice system doesn’t always reward those who tell the truth, but those who have the power to create their own.” In essay writing, we often have to create a narrative. They are based on actual events, but are they the truth?

Also, what bothered me was that I’ve always moved by the propaganda in the mainstream media (MSM) and acted on it as it was the truth until I found out it was false. Believing that the MSM would never lie, I thought the sensationalized spinning of the narrative of killer White cop vs. Black victim as truth, and that caused me to think I lived under the siege of White supremacy.

Speaking of White supremacy, I was afraid to go to a Donald Trump rally fearing harassment from racist White people. However, when I was unexpectedly at a Trump rally (an Election night meetup I attended was blocks away from Trump Headquarters), not only was it high energy, but it was the first time I felt patriotic in my life. One thing this Trump election has proven is that the MSM has an extreme bias to the Right of the political spectrum and that they call “fake news” as much as the outlets they call “fake news.”

“Fake news” in the name of spin and propaganda is what leads to lynch mobs hurting the innocent and doing regretful acts. Along with emotional disengagement from the latest story, I strive to get the full picture or truth of the matters. And the purpose of this website is the pursuit of the truth.

We all have incidents that we have either experienced or observed. The goal of this site is to express them as truthfully as possible in all realms of topics from current events, travel, politics, musings, etc. Also, this site to expose others to new ideas, unknown information, including musical talent the mainstream may not know. Since no one is perfect, feel free to fact check all the content here – because the purpose here is to sift out the truth from the narratives.
