Truckers Shutting Down DC To Protest The Federal Government And Its “Bulls**t”

By: Kristin Tate

A group of truckers plans to shut down DC to protest the government and its “bulls**t.” The rally, happening on October 11 for three days, will question the Obama administration’s “corruption against the Constitution.”


The truckers were initially gathering attention using social media, primarily Facebook.

But now the group’s Facebook page, “Truckers to Shut Down America,” has been pulled off the web. The page’s admins were banned for using “God Bless America.”

The group’s Facebook page used to say, “The American people are sick and tired of the corruption that is destroying America! We therefore declare a GENERAL STRIKE on the weekend of October 11-13, 2013! Truck drivers will not haul freight! Americans can strike in solidarity with truck drivers!”

As a result of being banned from Facebook, the truckers started their own website called RideForTheConstitution.org to promote the event.

Freedom Outpost pointed out that Facebook allows pages promoting jihad, but “will pull pages like Truckers to Shut Down America and Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children for promoting conservative and/or Christian beliefs. That makes sense when the owners and admins of Facebook are in cahoots with government and in bed with big money men.

With the social networking page nowhere to be found, it is now up to the old-fashioned, hit the pavement, door to door grassroots effort.”

Here is more information on the protest from the group’s Facebook original page (the one that got pulled from the web):

“My fellow patriot this effort is to support the truckers in a major shut down of America ion [sic] a 3 day strike October 11th thru 13th. Obamacare will be in effect and most people will be ready to take action. No commerce on those days stock up on items that you will need. No banking no shopping no money transactions.

It does not matter if a million or 50 roll through DC in this effort. Congress will listen to We the People. Which is remove Obama from office for crimes of treason and misdemeanors. We want Congressional hearing on Benghazi and Seal Team 6. Louis Learner [sic] put in jail. No amnesty, remove all Muslims in our government that do not uphold the Constitution. Remove Eric Holder from office for crimes against the people and the Constitution. Last but not least is Fuel prices.”

Do you support these truckers? Also, do you think Facebook had a partisan motivation from pulling down the group’s page? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

    How is “God Bless America” against FB community standards?!

    • HemiMG

      It’s not. And that’s not why the page was shut down. In fact, the page wasn’t even shut down permanently, It was shut down for a day due to a complaint from a troll. At least according to this article:

      http://www.examiner.com/article/exclusive-facebook-shuts-down-patriot-trucker-group-because-of-a-troll

      How on earth Kristin got “God Bless America” as the reason for the shut down only she knows. I would like to see a little more fact checking from a site with Ben Swann’s name on it though.

      • Robin Harrison

        The site went down and when it came back the one that started it stated The reason was for saying God Bless America So everyone started saying Godspeed and two days after it was just gone. Myself I think the powers that be had something to do with it.
        Unite people everyone is hurting and those that think a 29 hour work week is something they can survive on well they better start taking their belts up a few notches.

  • Kevin Merck

    Great news, I’m on board.
    Maybe these truckers can show the pitiful “bikers” how it’s done.
    This reminds me of the Clint Eastwood movies. “Every which way you can” and “Every which way but loose”.
    The truckers were always the good guys and the bikers were pitiful punks.
    Funny how life imitates art.

    • Yanksta

      Pitiful bikers? Do you know how many showed up?

      • ZakCarter

        I think the problem the bikers had wasn’t in their numbers – it’s that they didn’t have a rally IN D.C. that featured speakers and a round table discussion group of their “leaders.” Cameras would have loved that, and just a bunch of bikers didn’t give the media much to show… the truckers are going to face the same thing. Just driving around DC doesn’t make for great TV…

        • RonWillison

          Zak. This is just a guess. But I’m thinking your not old enough to have witnessed the effect that Truckers driving through DC had, the last time they felt the need to roll a convoy.

          • Kevin Merck

            How would you know how old he is?
            Maybe it’s you who needs to take an add out in the paper.
            The biker rally was a non-event.

        • RonWillison

          Zak. This is just a guess. But I’m thinking your not old enough to have witnessed the effect that Truckers driving through DC had, the last time they felt the need to roll a convoy.

        • Stormy

          Good luck driving a semi in DC. It isn’t set up to accommodate more than 1 truck at a time. Who is the spokesperson for this event and what about this event even remotely applies to the over regulating of truckers?

          And has any trucker out there ever heard of Zeeda Andrews/Hutton? And why should truckers take on her battle against Muslims. I see squat that relates to truckers and the problems they are facing.

        • Toni Welnhofer

          They didnt even talk about the bikers or the millon muslim march that day on the news. Cuz i looked to hear about it all day. And I read that the muslim march only showed about 25 ppl. So there shows that the millon of muslims we have in this countrey isnt going to march for a positive America, They hate us so much only a few attended. And they’ve been taught to smile and be your best buddie til they feel they have enough muslims in the country to take us down. And Obama clears the path to doing just that. Im happy the truckers are doing this. I dont think they could get near the potus, Im sure he’s probaly not home, he’s out playing golf somewhere. But I support their message, I suppported the bikers message., would of been great if they did it together. I’ll stock up for three days. Wish I had truck to support this in person. So truck on my fellow American!

      • Kevin Merck

        The truckers are trying to draw attention to real problems and an out of control regime in Washington.

        The **only thing** the bikers were trying to draw attention to was themselves.

        If only a handful of truckers show up to protest real problems, they outshine 10 million bikers who are perfectly happy with the status quo.

        The bikers could have made their rally a historic event, to raise awareness of the corruption and criminality in Washington, but they chose to make it a politically correct non-event.

        • RonWillison

          Kevin methinks you are not understanding much about the Biker event. Also I don’t think you know much about who the people that rode those scooters are. They are American citizens Veterans of Foreign wars, People that like myself bought into all the cold war domino theory camel dung. Students, housewives doctors, lawyers, construction workers, and on and on. Some were probably even Muslim’s. Riding two wheels cross country is not a picnic. Those as old as myself that made that journey will tell you it physically hurts. Without having to say one single word or hold up one single sign. Showing up in every state capital and DC made a huge statement. And you can trust and believe that the powers that be got the message. If you want to rant about something. Why not do it in comment boxes at MSMBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, and Foxes sites and rail on them why they fail to cover in detail events such as these. Three lines embedded somewhere between Lost and Found and Garage sales at the NYTIMES might also be a place to do some ranting and raving about your motive concerns. Oh and yes there might have been 30 or 40 Outlaws like the Hells Angels or the VAGO’S mixed in with the every day Bikers. They were the exception not the rule.

          • Kevin Merck

            “Showing up in every state capital and DC made a huge statement.”

            What statement was that?

            And, what exactly in my comment is “ranting”.

          • RonWillison

            Listen to the roar of an awakening giant. Fail to hear it at your own peril. Your opinion about the the overall results made it a rant. Maybe i used that term a little too lightly as most of the time I wind up calling my opinions rants as I tend to be a bit long winded. It was not meant as a putdown.

          • RonWillison

            Oh BTW. Forget about what would be a big waste of time trying to voice displeasure at the NYTIMES. I did that and as soon as I pointed out that they should look into and report more on the IDF’S activities in the Occupied Territories (ie) Gaza and the West Bank. My commenting abilities were removed. Flagged as SPAM no less.

          • Clare

            Maybe not ranting, but close. I would call your theme regarding the bikers obsessive, and your analysis of the two strategies, the bikers and the truckers, sophomoric.

          • Clare

            Good on ‘ya. Thanks for the comment.

  • But_Who_Will_Build_The_Roads

    Never a fan of Muslim bashing but I like a lot of their other ideas.

    • usaok59

      They specifically say “Muslims in our government that do not uphold the Constitution”. American patriots normally would not have a problem with that stipulation.

  • Sally King Ross

    All groups that are tired of this Tyranny need to put their small differences aside and come together. Strike on them at the same time. Threaten to shutdown the government, we should showdown America. Go Truckers Go!

    • read the bill of rights

      I’m In!!!! Oct. 11, 12, and 13. I agree Americans united is a powerful antidote to Tyranny
      Put away the TIT for TAT and support the creative people who love America that are willing to take a peaceful stand whether it’s biker’s, trucker’s or sign carrier’s. The point is America is great! let’s support those who are trying to keep it that way. Insulting the doer’s is not very productive. Political corrective speech can be good but also blown out of proportion. Common sense is a great attribute bestowed upon humans. Let’s hope we use it!!!

  • asiliveandbreathe

    The organizer of the “trucker” strike is NOT affiliated or knows anything about the trucking industry. I believe she went on the Daily Paul forum and started all this garbage for self serving reasons, she never discussed any of this with trucking organizations. It was just a way to promote her FB page filled with Muslim bashing. It didn’t get much support at the Daily Paul.

    • Kevin Merck

      That doesn’t make it a bad idea. We need a million truckers to drive right up to the Whitehouse door until that treasonous rat Obama is forced to resign.

      • AZMama

        True, but a strike only hurts the struggling businesses and consumers, not the government. Trucker march on DC – YES! Strike – NO.

        • Kevin Merck

          You couldn’t be more wrong.

          We need people to prepare for an extended strike to take the criminals in DC down permanently. There needs to be arrests and people need to be held accountable.

          If you think change is going to happen without a little pain, you are not living in the real world.

      • Amy

        Forget Obama, shut down Congress! That will get you a lot further.

        • Kevin Merck

          Shut them all down and start arresting these criminals.

          Everyone who voted for the Patriot Act and NDAA needs to be arrested and charged with treason.

          They think we are so stupid that we don’t know when they’re violating their oaths and warring against the people.

          It’s time to make believers out of them all.

  • KimP

    I’d like to know why Kristin says this rally is bullsh**? Seems to me Kristin, they are doing more to protect this country & our citizens than you! Write a silly article without any facts, like that their site is Muslim bashing or they got shut down for using the term God Bless America. Please list sources for your comments, or stop attempting to be a “journalist”.

    • Kevin Merck

      Read it again. I don’t see where she said the rally is BS.

    • Joseph Isaiah Benjamin

      You went full retard. Hasn’t anyone told you that you should never go full retard?

      • DB.Coupe

        Lolz at your Tropic Thunder reference.

      • has

        full retard is arrogantly declaring that muslims are destroying america. any person with internet or a semi-intelligent buddy knows that israeli citizens constitute most of the u.s. government, not to mention media and treasury.

        • belly

          and for those with senility, which appears to be everyone commenting so far, israel is run by “jews.” in recent history, bauer and his buddies conquered palestine as a satellite base from which to conquer the middle east, in order to secure and rape uzbekistan, which is the (resource)geo-strategic center of the earth.

      Kim, she did not say that the strike is BS.
      The strike organizers said they’re striking against the government and its BS.
      As in: the government and the government’s BS.

      Please understand reading comprehension, how punctuation marks such as commas (or not including them) changes the meaning of a sentence, and the difference between possessive pronouns and conjunctions, before telling someone else they’re not qualified to be a journalist.

        Carrie, Great point. The distinction is between its and it’s:)

  • AZMama

    A trucker strike will only hurt struggling small businesses and consumers, not the government who is trying to crash the economy anyway – it plays right into their hands. Looks to me more like an Obama Occupy move, even more because the original planner isn’t even a trucker. She was probably paid to convince the truckers it was a good idea. The original trucker rally was to march on DC only. THAT would be cool! Now Obama can blame the hardships of a strike on the truckers. I can’t believe people can’t see through this. ‘Cause and effect’, people! It hurts us and helps the government! Don’t support a strike. A big rig march on DC, YES! A strike, NO.

    • CarrieB

      This is, in no way, going to hurt struggling small businesses and consumers.
      Large trucking companies, who carry the majority of freight, will not be participating in this “strike”. It is only independent truckers who might even consider it.
      If you normally have 500 truckers making deliveries through your town on the weekend, during this strike you might have 498.
      The timing on this strike is horrible, it was not thought out at all, it will have no impact whatsoever on either businesses or the consumers.
      In short, it will be a non-issue.

    • Kevin Merck

      There will never be any change if people listen to anyone like you.
      The idea that we can painlessly end this this criminal takeover without any sacrifice is as crazy and delusional as it gets.

    • belinda

      obviously, no. they have no functioning intellect. they are unaware that they are puppets (really dumb mammals) pulled by jews, israeli citizens running the u.s. government, media, and treasury.

  • DB.Coupe

    A few people raised an interesting effect that this strike might have on small businesses. It could potentially harm their business, however a 3 day strike will not limit business. It will drive businesses to sell majority of their goods in a 3 day period. The same thing happens whenever a tropical storm rolls through the DC area, which I’m a nearby resident, stores empty stock before their freights can arrive to restock in a typical 2-3 day period. So as for the strike hurting small businesses that depend on freight shipments I do not think it will them dramatically. Many of the smallest vendors (ie: foodtrucks, some delis) get their goods from costcos and other wholesale providers because its cheaper than bulk freight supplies that require large price minimums, larger food chains which always do fine might be effected, but not significantly in my opinion.

    As for their cause, I understand their point. It is an interesting method of peaceful civil protest. The censorship of their cause goes to show that DC must be afraid of any unprecedented outcome, which they should be since DC’s agenda in stark opposition of the people. The same thing happened with the bikers, which was not pitiful- they represented a large amount of Americans who were unfair aid to stand up and assert their rights through peaceful action.

  • DB.Coupe

    My only criticism about what they are asking is the part that says ” remove all Muslims in government that do not follow the constitution.” This seems to be the part where many cause worthy opinions for change gets a little extreme. I am assuming they are just refers to Obama. However, why limit to Muslims why not just any American in government positions that take an oath to uphold the constitution. For their cause, I hope they consider toning down their racial adjectives. It’s racial phrasing like that which off-rails the change they seek.

    • Amy

      Yeah, that turned me off too. Ruined their message by bringing that up. Should have just stuck with a generic “anyone in govt. that does not uphold the Constitution”.

    • Kevin Merck

      They’re talking about Obama. I don’t think it’s a racially charged statement.

      At least they are addressing real issues. If you want to charge a group with intolerance of Muslims, put that on the million-mindless-bikers who never addressed one issue of any importance whatsoever.They claimed to be paying homage to the victims of 9/11 while completely ignoring the facts about 9/11 that everyone should understand by now.

      We need a nationwide strike to bring these criminals down and I hope these truckers can turn this into a big event. If the bikers had any balls whatsoever, they would be right along side these truckers all the way.

      • DB.Coupe

        So it is understood they were referring to Obama. Regardless of opinion they explicitly refer to him with a racial adjective. The point I was making is that this type of language, which is rooted in anger and rage, sparks hesitation and reluctance in an audience when it comes to asserting a cause like this one. The fundamental goal of most causes to to persuade change. I am saying that this racial note is enough to deter the an uninformed audience which may see these events on a superficial level. Don’t misunderstand me either when I say racial note I was not implying racial intolerance, whether that is the case or not.

        Which brings us to one of the biggest problems a good cause against injustice faces. That problem is heated language. People should be angry against injustice and it was captured well in a quotation I once read “if you are not outraged then you are not paying attention.” However, outraged angered language does not persuade a crowd. It is not tactful and does ore harm to the cause than good. That is my main point.

        • Kevin Merck

          First of all, Islam is a religion, Muslims are of that faith, it’s not a race of people. Muslims come in all shapes, sizes and colors.

          We are not talking about racism. It’s religious intolerance that you are supposedly concerned about.

          Heated language is what brings about change. You are coming from a “politically incorrect” place, which is alien to any people who want to be free.

          The Founding Fathers were very angry people who used heated language to inspire people. We would still be British subjects if they thought the way you do.

          • DB.Coupe

            I am not going to debate semantics. Different language may have been more effective then, but we live in a different age with a difference audience. It would not hurt to construct respectful, well poised, and well phrased arguements. There is no shame in being angry or outraged, but those emotional influences don’t benefit good communication. A cause is a way to communicate a message therefore it is advantageous to go about it in a soundly manner.

            Example : Try negotiating diplomacy with heated languange. You won’t get far quick.

            And going back to the bikers, although I wasn’t involved, it appeared to me that they were paying homage and respect to the fallen. It was not an event or a medium that they were looking to use to assert 9/11 theories. Their massive turn out showed there are still millions who remember the losses from 9/11. The fact there was also a peaceful Muslim march in the same area in a time of Muslim stigma was also a good sign of progress. You may say they should’ve asserted their 9/11 or the general 9/11truth theories, but what was greatly apparent was the Americans in this rally to be able to forgive but not forget. one step at a time.

          • Kevin Merck

            “I am not going to debate semantics.”

            Not knowing the difference between a race and a religion goes a little deeper than semantics.

            “Try negotiating diplomacy with heated languange. You won’t get far quick.”

            Diplomacy is practiced between countries who are not at war with each other. This is a domestic issue that has nothing to do with “diplomacy”.

            “The fact there was also a peaceful Muslim march in the same area in a time of Muslim stigma was also a good sign of progress.”
            The biker rally was in response to the Muslim gathering and was a show of religious intolerance. (not racial intolerance)
            The only way the bikers could have shown any respect for the dead would have been to question every detail of the official version of events without reservation.

          • DB.Coupe

            You’re straying away from the very thing that I was saying was the problem. You are augmenting the use of a racial/religious term that is not nesseicary. Their point would’ve been more balanced if they were to have said “all Americans in the government who don’t follow the constitution.” See how that works? No isolating terms.

            Btw when I said racial term I was referring to a racism term which includes intolerance towards race and/or religion.

            Diplomacy “3.
            skill in managing negotiations, handling people, etc., so that there is little or no ill will; tact: Seating one’s dinner guests often calls for considerable diplomacy.”

            And the bikers, I don’t know why there is so much animosity towards them, but nevertheless they planned the rally on 9/11/13 and were denied permits. The upset was DC said they “couldn’t manage their numbers”, but turned around and permitted a million Muslim march. Their rally had nothing to do with Muslim intolerance, it was a sign of morning and respect in a civil disobedient way

          • Kevin Merck

            The biker rally was in response to the Muslim gathering, get your facts straight.

            You didn’t know the difference between a race and a religion. If you want people to take anything you say seriously, you need to acknowledge your ignorance.

            Finally, what about the “diplomacy” involved in taking the position that you can murder any U.S. citizen you want and/or detain them indefinitely without charge and without a right to habeas corpus or legal counsel.

            If we listen to crackpots like you we will be taken back 800 years.

      • Clare

        The Bikers To DC was nothing less than stunning. The bikers
        won. They accomplished precisely what they set out to accomplish for themselves and for Americans.

        Without you. You come off as some kind of campaign
        strategist for the mentally ill liberal socialists. (I hope the chair that you’re sitting in is comfortable.)

        How do you recognize an American Patriot? Patriots know that
        bikers have power by their mere presence. Bikers are an event just standing there or just by looking you in the eye. And in DC they were staring right into the eye of evil without flinching. When bikers showed up in DC, the worms and snakes in the White House knew that they were looking at “we the people”; the Patriots of America got representation that day and the images will not be quick to fade from our minds when the truckers follow suit.

        For some reason you are planting the false notion of some kind of comparison between the two. Perhaps because you didn’t manage control of the bikers except in your oft repeated opinion of them throughout these comments.

    • Brad

      Muslim is not a race…. It’s not racial to talk about religion. Now if he said get all african-americans out of office, then you can talk about racial phrasing.

      • gas

        get all the israeli citizens, jews, out of office would have been correct and coherent.

    • Clare

      Belief in an ideology does not create a “race”, nor does belief in a religion. It creates followers. Islamists follow an ideology that is incompatible with our way of life – it’s dangerous. It’s not wrong to point this out, but, yes, better would be to include their enablers as well – the democrats, socialists and progressives – all who violate their oath of office.

  • Jeep Jitsu

    As a trucker I kind of agree with what they want to do but why stop freight for private businesses? Also, a good amount of truckers hold pretty strong beliefs against Obama, even to an extreme. So I take this with a grain of salt. There are better ways of going about it and it starts with peaceful present parenting.

      Yeah, by the time all the peaceful present parenting kicks in, the country will be in the crapper. This is why the left always wins. The right doesn’t have the will to fight. They prefer to assume the fetal position and hope something bad doesn’t happen.

    • mykill

      because the corporations own our government…

    • Picklechip

      Peaceful present parenting is a wonderful thing, but we need to act NOW and with vehemence enough to send the message to congress and POTUS to be sure that they receive it in no uncertain terms. Enough is enough. United we stand, divided we fall and the government is counting upon our NOT being united and they are doing their utmost to make sure we are well divided. Time to wake up, put aside our differences and join forces, kids. Only then, will we be able to make a difference.

    Facebook became the most successful ‘SOCIAL NETWORK’ – only to sell its soul to DC/Wall Street during the Occupy Movement in exchange for a heavily Trumped-up IPO payout.

    Facebook is currently nothing more than a ‘CORPORATE NETWORK.’
    It is the Yellowpages of newer online media, with more invasive marketing.
    That’s all.

    • Kevin Merck

      Facebook is a window into the lives, of everyone stupid enough to use it, for every intelligence agency in America.

      • curious1

        If not Facebook then some other social media site, hell it doesn’t even have to be social media the Gov. tracks you on all sites! I wish I was a techie I build a site like Facebook an give the raving liberals a run for their money!!

        • Kevin Merck

          I know. I think the best we can do is use it to take them down before they hit the ‘kill switch’ and shut it down.

        • RAS

          The best alternative to Facebook is 4chan at http://www.4chan.org. It’s no holds barred, totally “anything goes” so be prepared for an assault to the senses, and everyone is anonymous with old pages auto-deleted. But there are great topics there. And although the site looks old, it has 23 million users and climbing. (Also the launching pad of Anonymous)

  • carlos

    I wish it would continue more than 3 days. The machine needs to be stopped completely!!!

    • Kevin Merck

      You got that right. It needs to be about three months, or total restoration of the constitution, which ever comes first.

    • SlimJim

      “The machine needs to be stopped completely” Amen. Sounds like a line from Atlas Shrugged. I’m going to have to pull it out and read it again.

  • KenSanDiego

    Wanna bet I can still grab some cash at the ATM to buy my Budweiser and chips at 7-11?

    • nwosucks

      And your point?

    • Christopher Tutt

      And I will say that you are an idiot and against the constitution for just posting this question on this article. It will be the COMPLIANT bi*ches like you that are going to hand the kids of this world.country a POLICE STATE full of suppression and screwing over the people.

      Way to be a shill.

    • berky

      I think they were saying for you to stop using them for those days… basically stop all commerce for 3 days. Not that it wouldn’t be available to you….

      • KenSanDiego

        Ah, now that makes more sense. I was under the impression they intended to halt commerce by their actions.

        And to Mr Tutt, you have a right to voice your complaints in protest. I have a right to completely ignore you which I will hence forth assert. What a lugnut.

  • Stormy

    We are fighting Obama, Muslims, Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg and each other? We will make a difference in what and we prove that semis are bigger than bikes because???? Somebody care to explain to me what organization has been put onto this and what I have read that makes this a tucker’s fight?? Zeeda ”Cowgirl” is hollering rednecks unite and truckers are going to hop in their semis and run across America to drive through Washington? Somebody needs to get back to us on this when we have a plan.

    • Sue Anne Ward

      Don’t follow it!!!

    “remove all Muslims in our government that do not uphold the Constitution” .. pray tell, what muslims are there? these hideous creatures haven’t even looked to see that their government holds Israeli citizenship. God save the primates. would have gone to DC to be with them, but that they are even illiterate just ruins everything.

    • nitemare2

      Anti-Semitism much, your lack of intellect and fear of others is showing.

  • Phyllis Petty

    I say people sick and tired of the theft of our freedoms by BIG GOVERNMENT should stand with any AMERICANS courageous enough to stand against them…as long as they do not promote violence.

  • stephen simmons

    I think a better less racist principle would have been remove all who do not uphold the constitution. Singling out Muslims is intellectually lazy. There are more Christians that I can shake a stick at who do not know the Constitution much less follow it.

  • john

    This is a bunch of bull*hit. These “truckers” are a bunch of right wing rednecks and I don’t need to stockpile anything. A protest in one city is called a GENERAL STRIKE! What a joke!!!! A REAL General Strike would involve the whole nation. What, is the CIA sponsoring this page?Impeach Obama for crimes? Then you would have had to impeach every president since Washington!!!! George Washington, who owned slaves, was fighting to be free and claimed to be a Christian. Does he read in his bible Moses and deliverance from slavery!

    • Joe

      Rednecks? The next time your sorry ass needs something from the store just remember that a Redneck brought it to the store so your worthless ass could buy it and support a corrupt government that you must be in support of. Anybody can drive a truck but it takes a REAL MAN to be called a true TRUCKER, something your punk ass will never be MAN enough to be called. 25 years of hearing all the complaints about trucks, and if it wasn’t for trucks AMERICA would stop!! Who is going to haul the freight? You cowards? Not likely!!

      • KingLeo

        God bless america!

      • Dennis Davis

        Very good answer, I am with you.

    • Clare

      John, your first comment was illiterate, but this one isn’t. You are a thrice ass.

  • john

    I am an “AMERICAN”. Do you realize what a racist and arrogant word this is?Canada is a part of North America, as is Mexico, Central America is also part of the America’s as is South America.

    • Doug Bo

      this is the United States of America, douchebag. Canada is part of North America, but it’s not part of America. One is a continent, the other is an officially named country.
      First, you’re a moron because you don’t understand this very elementary difference.
      Second, suck it. Nationality and race aren’t the same thing, so there’s no racism involved.
      Third, yeah it may be arrogant. What’s your point? There’s nothing wrong with national pride… especially since it defeats your own argument. Either nationality equals race, and we shouldn’t be put down for our nationality, which by default means we should be proud of our nationality, or our nationality truly doesn’t matter, which means that being proud of it is inconsequential and therefore carries no insult or offense.
      I’d say that in simpler words for you, so you can understand, but I can’t seem to find my crayons anywhere…

    • Liberty Man

      Do you even realize what “racist” means? Your ignorance is painful.

    • Clare

      God bless America and her sovereignty and the sovereignty of every State of the Union. America first! Every race in the world is represented in the United States and are welcome. The only exception is traitors and they aren’t a race.

  • Concerned Citizen

    Being a former trucker myself … I support this action BIG TIME !
    Perhaps they could load-up all those on the hill there, that are causing so much of the problems !?
    They keep taking US for a ride, let’s give them one too… right out of this Country !

    • read the bill of rights

      they do keep taking us for a ride. Not just the president, but also congress etc… Being paid off by the giant corporations has become more lucrative to our representatives than actually representing the people. glad some are still willing to take a stand! I am 100% on board

  • zeedaandrews

    I would like to address some of the issues spoken here!
    First, my involvement in the trucking industry is as a Country Recording
    Artist. I have traveled nationwide with Truckers for many years and we have
    become family. My sister is a former owner operator in the trucking industry. I am quite aware of what is going on with the independent
    trucker that is in slaving them. It has never been easy to be an independent
    truck driver and with the high fuel prices, high cost of insurance and over
    regulations and bureaucracy; including out of control taxes it is a wonder that
    there are any Independent truck drivers left at all. Do you really think the
    OOIDA is working for you? And the Independents who are left are upside down intruck payments and are not making very much money.

    Indeed, I am deeply troubled with the Trucking Industry in
    the US and the number of “Independent Truck Drivers” who have been
    forced into BK and trucks repo’ed. I often tune into Rolly James or George Noory and listen to the complaints about the Mexican Truck Driver issues. Whatever happens to the Trucking industry will have a direct effect on the American people and for anybody to indicate otherwise is just spewing their Marxist tactic to control the narrative diverting the issues of UN-constitutional regulations of total slavery.

    For the those that do not understand the differences, Muslims are not
    a race of people. Muslims come in all shapes, sizes and colors. Their religion
    is Islam and its religious intolerance has Americans concerned with the radical changes to our Constitution, liberties and freedom. If you can’t see the big picture and if it has to be broken down to you, then I can only say to you that you are part of the problem and not the solution and are willing to give your consent to the destruction of the laws of the land The Constitution. This is a time to be bold and fearless to confront the corruption that infiltrates our law. All you complainers can either lead follow or get the heck out of the because the Trucker are going to carry that torch of freedom for our constitution,
    liberties and freedom in a peaceful display taking the grievances of the
    Truckers and the America people! We hope that you wake up and join this
    movement to save your country from darkness and lawlessness. Ridefortheconstitution.org Zeeda Andrews

  • zeedaandrews

    I meant to say harder to be a driver!

  • Clare

    My big brother who was a trucker in Denver (recently passed) would have joined you to go to DC. I support you wholeheartedly in your strike and your demands. God bless you and God bless America.

      Thank you Clare! Godspeed!

    Reasons why Obama should be charged with Treason:

    1. Perpetrating acts of fraud, perjury and conspiracy in his refusal to
    confirm his lawful eligibility to serve as president under the U.S.
    Constitution Article II, Section 1, constituting impeachable offenses of
    high crimes and misdemeanors adumbrated in U.S. Constitution Article
    II, Section 4;

    2. Surrendering sovereign U.S. war-making to
    foreign powers and international authorities by attacking Libya without
    consulting Congress, in violation of U.S. Constitution Article 1,
    Section 8 and U.S. Code Title 50, r 33:1541-1548;

    3. Accepting
    foreign title and office while acting as U.S. President and without
    consulting Congress when in 2009, Obama assumed the Chairmanship of the
    UN Security Council, the international body responsible for declaring
    war on behalf of the UN, in violation of U.S. Constitution Article I,
    Section 9;

    4. Making bribery attempts in word and in deed, as
    Obama administration offered bribes to at least three Federal candidates
    for office: Joe Sestak, Andrew Romanoff and Jim Matheson, in violation
    of U.S. Code Title 18, Section 201;

    5. Defying a Federal Court
    Order by refusing to halt the unconstitutional implementation of the
    “Patient Healthcare and Affordable Care Act of 2010, popularly known as
    “ObamaCare”, in violation of U.S. Constitution Article II, Section 3,
    and Article III, Sections 1 & 2;

    6. Defying a Federal Court
    Order by refusing to grant lawful deep water drilling permits, in
    violation of U.S. Constitution Article II, Section 3, and Article III,
    Sections 1 & 2;

    7. Executive Branch creation and
    implementation of regulations asserting unconstitutional force of
    Federal law on matters explicitly rejected by or contrary to the will
    and intent of Congress, specifically the EPA implementation of Cap and
    Trade, in violation of U.S. Constitution Article I, Section 1 and
    Section 8;

    8. Refusing to secure our broken borders from
    illegal alien invasion, international criminal incursion, and terrorist
    cadre penetration, in violation of U.S. Constitution, Article III,
    Section 3 and Article IV, Section 4;

    9. Executive Branch
    malfeasance and impeding the administration of justice by preventing the
    U.S. Department of Justice from investigating crimes committed for the
    direct benefit of the President by presidential associates including:
    voter intimidation at the hands of the New Black Panthers and ACORN
    election fraud, in violation of U.S. Constitution Article II, Section 3,
    and U.S. Criminal Code Section 135, (Comp. St. § 10305);

    10.
    Direct mobilizing and funding of mob violence, sedition and
    insurrection, as witnessed in Wisconsin, by the President’s own
    reelection campaign group Organizing for America, and including open
    statements of incitement to the insurrection by the President himself,
    in violation of U.S. Penal Code, Chapter 115, Section 2383;

    11.
    Executive Branch usurpation of lawmaking powers voiding duly enacted
    legislation of Congress by improperly preventing the U.S. Department of
    Justice from defending established Federal law – specifically the
    Defense of Marriage Act, in violation of U.S. Constitution Article II,
    Section 3;

    12. Adhering to the enemies of the United States,
    giving them aid and comfort, as witnessed by consorting with, supporting
    and installing to powerful Federal positions persons who in writing,
    word and deed have called for and promoted the overthrow of America’s
    constitutionally guaranteed Republican form of government, and the
    overthrow of the United States Constitution; including but not limited
    to William Ayers, Bernadette Dohrn, Cass Sunstein, John Holdren, Van
    Jones, Dalia Mogahed, Harold Koh, and Eric Holder, in violation of U.S.
    Constitution, Article III, Section IV and U.S. Penal Code, Section 2385.

    Not to mention his most recent flirtations with treasonous and unlawful
    acts…..His desire to launch military strikes on Syria, which he will
    probably do with or without congressional authorization (once again in
    total and complete violation of the Constitution), and his support of
    “rebel” forces in that country with confirmed ties to terrorist
    organizations, such as H’amas, Al’queda and the Muslim Brotherhood,
    sworn enemies of the United States of America. “Rebels” from these
    organizations would rip out your mothers heart and eat it raw today if
    they could get their hands on her, just because she was an American, and
    our “beloved” president continues to send weapons, money and aid to
    them. Then there’s always, the IRS scandal, The Bhengazi incident, the
    Fast and Furious gun scandal, the illegal NSA spying (on U.S. citizens)
    program, the illegal drone war and the killing of U.S. citizens without
    due process from this illegal drone war. The list just goes on and on
    and on and on and on and on and on…………………
    But then again, it’s only the Constitution he is in violation of, so who really cares. Right??

    naturally the government had a hand in shutting down the face book page, just like they did to the other gentleman( i can’t think of his name) who made available a secure web that NSA could not tap. or the reporter who supposedly wrecked while speeding. go to infowars.com and watch the video of the crash. there was an explosion BEFORE the crash that threw the motor over 100 feet. the lame stream media is trying to pass it off as an accident. Don’t pee down my back and try to tell me it is raining

  • Be The Change You Want To See

    I support the action in principle. In practice it needs work. In principle, the action illustrates how essential the whole of the distribution network is to not simply personal survival but to the survival of the system it self.

    It illustrates how bogus the illusion of having “class structures” truly are by means of removing the element of those who actually do the labor and leaving the “authority” to either do it themselves, or surrender that authority to those who truly have the power to restore some semblance of balance and it determinately has the potential for that kind of perspective.

    Where it falls down is in making all about things like high fuel prices, social orientation, right or left leaning paradigms and conventional political positions that are clearly so corrupt they need to be completely re-thought, re-worked, and re-applied in ways that actually benefit people rather than simply exploiting them and causing further division.

    Eliminate social inequality (class structure) and everyone is on a level existence and leaders become servers.

    As a suggestion it might be a good idea to consider that not everything needs to be a competition rather, more of a cooperation of the majority which, as Occupy Wall Street coined, are the 99%. For some folks I’d also suggest that name calling, aside from the obvious that it’s childish, doesn’t help the cause you claim to be in support of. If you truly want change, look for what’s common rather that to alienate others because that’s what the “machine” wants…competition.

    Yes, this is a United States initiated endeavor and for that, I’m personally very glad to see the spirit of freedom is still alive. Way to go. It can be the start of real change, or it can be an event that comes…and goes.

    You decide.

  • Hbtrux

    THE PLAN:

    STAGE 1 Haul no freight..(shut off commerce),,& Public spend no money or go to work (call out sick) Stop the flow of Tax dollars..

    stage 1 is to RING DC’S BELL aka get their attention.. when bankers are screaming in their favorite senators ears about loosing money. and investors screaming about bleeding out funds, and other countries crying where’s our Money…

    This alone will make them notice we effectively UN PLUGGED THEIR POWER SOURCE.

    STAGE 2 everyone truckers & patriots surround state capitols and DC. this is a symbolic show of force.. IF it is happening at every STATE CAPITOL AND WASHINGTON DC.. they now have no choice but to pay attention to us!

    at DC all Tractor Trailers circle the 495 loop around the city rolling clock wise. all other cars pickups bikers and bobtail trucks flow counter clock wise.. then flow into the city and circle the Gov. buildings..

    Stage 3: We the people approach the Capitol and DEMAND THE ARREST OF ALL WHO SUPPORTED SENDING OUR TROOPS TO FIGHT ALONG SIDE OF AL QUIEDIA. AND CHARGED WITH TREASON.

    Demanding the Arrest of all who support Obama care and many other issues with violating their Oath to office.. and then Demand that all Government from the president to the local police OBEY THE CONSTITUTION..

    If we do not get what we want we keep the economy shut off..

  • Pattielaine

    There another one starting before October to impeach every House bagger. With their approval at 9%, we already have 253,000 signature. They won’t stop at impeaching, they will drive them to the desert, tie them up and walk away. That’s all it will take. Every bag will be destroyed, then the children and grandchildren are next.

  • Stephanie Snyder Staker

    I just checked Facebook and found a group page called “1 Million Truckers to DC”. It is live and people are posting on it. I suppose these Facebook pages mentioned above were a bit too radical for FB and, of course, they do whatever O tells them to do. But be sure check the group page I mentioned and post! Get the word out to everyone, please.
