Convoy to D.C. – Truckers To Shut Down America in October

Mac Slavo
Activist Post

Last year the American Truckers Association prepared a report for Congress highlighting the susceptibility of the nation’s just-in-time delivery system, the majority of which is made possible by the transport and delivery of freight. In the event of a catastrophic disaster such as a war that drives fuel prices through the roof or even a natural disaster such as a solar flare that renders electronic trucks inoperable, there would be a “a swift and devastating impact on the food, healthcare, transportation, waste removal, retail, manufacturing, and financial sectors,” according to the report.

The backbone of commerce in the United States is the truck drivers who spend long hours on the road ensuring our very survival as a modern society.

But with fuel prices continuing to rise, wages dropping, jobs becoming harder to find, and rampant corruption in Washington D.C. furthering the country’s economic death spiral, America’s truck drivers, like the majority of our fellow citizens, are fed up.

Between October 11th and 13th they have called for a general strike, asking truck drivers around the country to refuse to haul freight, a move that could carry with it a significant impact on the American economy.

The protest calls for truckers to make their way to Washington D.C. in a massive convoy in an effort to call attention to, among other things, the Benghazi cover-up, the recent attack which killed 25 members of SEAL Team 6, ever rising fuel prices, and claims that President Obama has engaged in treasonous crimes.


Moreover, they’ve requested that the American people join them in solidarity by not shopping or engaging in any economic activity that benefits the government or their corporate interests.
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! 
[…] 
Breaker 1 9 calling on all Trucker to shut America down for three days October 11-13. The American people are bleeding out with no relief in sight, It is time to change the NEWS. Let us show our elected officials that we are 100% fed up with corruption and the blatant disregard of the Constitution that they swore to defend. 
Bob tail it hammer down to the bull$hit city with flags flying high. 
[…] 
My fellow Patriot this effort is to support the truckers in a major shut down of America in 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 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. - Via: The Truckers to Shutdown America Facebook Page
The protest comes on the heels of a massive biker rally held in Washington D.C., and other grassroots efforts to hold the government to account for various Constitutional transgressions including everything from stripping Americans of their right to bear arms, to forced health care mandates soon to be implemented across the country (with exemptions for members of Congress and corporations with insider access, of course).

Calls of accountability have grown louder over the years from all political sides, starting most notably with the Tea Party movement and progressing to Occupy Wall Street.

The corruption and need for real change in America’s government has transcended political lines.

If the hundreds of thousands of truckers across America who keep our delivery systems running efficiently were to join together and stop hauling freight for even a week, the impact would be devastating and could not be ignored.

There’d be no food on the shelves, no fuel at our gas stations, and no medical supplies at our pharmacies and hospitals.

Congress and the President, who would like nothing more than to be perceived as our saviors and benefactors, would have no choice but to address the concerns of freight haulers, because the American people would feel the effects of the protest directly. And, chances are they’d be in the streets protesting themselves because of lack of access to essential goods they can’t live without.

We may often feel as if we, as individuals, have no power against the mighty United States government, but as Karl Denninger points out, we have much more power than we think.
If we get just 10% of America on board the entire game changes. 
Especially when the business world — and government — realize that the next one is Black Friday weekend.
Just 10% of Americans can change the course of history, much like they did during the Revolutionary War.

Whether it happens in October, during Black Friday sales this November, or at some point in the future, this seemingly untenable situation is coming to a head.

Robert Kennedy may have said it best:
A revolution is coming — a revolution which will be peaceful if we are wise enough; compassionate if we care enough; successful if we are fortunate enough — But a revolution which is coming whether we will it or not. We can affect its character; we cannot alter its inevitability. - Robert Kennedy, Senate Floor, May 9, 1966
The snowball in America continues to roll down the hill, gaining speed and mass.

Sounded like a great idea, til I got to this,

"remove all Muslims in our government that do not uphold the Constitution."

Then it sounded like a bunch of ignorant, rednecked bigots.

How about "remove all representatives in our government that do not uphold the Constitution?" And I've got news for you, good buddies. That's almost all of them. And only a very few are Muslim.

Kind of like the idea of removing muslims from office. As I may be considered a redneck but "In God we Trust", not Obama or Alah.

This is another instance where a legiitimate gripe by legitimate americans is trying to be used by GOP. Tea Pot fanatics, for their own fucking warped political agenda
.There is no better reason to outlaw private ownership of guns than all republicans and tea party memberships, those fuckers are snake cold blooded freaks and fearing they can no longer wave the gn flags as.an excuse to kill something they are actively formenting a bloody mess by their dumb as rocks ignorant clods.
I am a 2nd Amendment Constitutionalist and the GOP Pots are no more than underground fascist. on the Order of American Taliban and their bastardized christian heretics are just as nuts.
Odd that a bunch of the most virulent anti unionist are now trying to ride the coatails of an organized work force.
Two faced assholes that will and have been cutting union beneefited truck drivers throats and gloating about the fact they work for less.
I know primarily sghort haul truckers of wood and agriculture but plenty of flatbed and steel teamsters and they have had to fight kerping a dcent wage just because of a bunch of ignorant rednecks cutting everyones throats they could. For once in their low lives kepp your fucking hands off real workeding menYou camnoy organize your own low lives and are just as fn guilty of screwing over working people as those who move offshore so rhey don't have to carry your ignorant associated s.

You are an idiot. You said in this very post that you agree with the GOP Tea Party agenda: "I am a 2nd Amendment constitutionalist." So don't go pretending you disagree with the Tea Party when they stand exactly where you do on the issues.

To anonymous 9/17 at 7:38. You mean the Muslims who want us to fund AlQaeda in Syria? Lindsey Graham and John McCain, you mean? You mean the Muslims that are jumping on the latest tragedies to try to crack down some more on people's rights? Rudi Guiliani and Diane Feinstein, you mean? You mean the Muslims who sponsored the bill to try to bar courts from stopping big companies from selling food even if it's proven dangerous? Ky Rep. Hal Rogers, you mean? But ok--can you tell me how many seats in the Senate and Congress would change hands if we "threw out all the Muslims?" And how about how many vote results would have changed if someone else had voted the opposite way of those Muslims? Let me give you a hint: THREE out of 535; ZERO.

Cutting off supplies to hospitals and pharmacies can lead to more than just inconvenience, it can lead to deaths of innocent people. That is not what a strike should be doing.

Finally! Someone has some clarity in their "digesting" abilities!

Whichever way one calls The Almighty - God, Bog, Allah - WHO CARES!?

But brainwashed Islamophobic propaganda needs to go! Including Seals 6 team families filing law suit and defender is... Iran. WTF!?

Thank You Anonymous for clarifying someone's stupidity!

May God (Allah) be with all. May God (Allah) praise You!

Noone is cutting electricity or water. Your reasoning is flawed. Hospitals and corporate pharmacies are stocked-up with 7 days worth of supplies.

Who needs their "drugs" anyways?. Our friends' husband cured from cancer in 3 months on Carrot-Beet-Apple juice in Mexico (which is prohibited for some reason in US) when American "doctors" gave him 1 month to "live," but suggested to say good bye to everyone.

Do everyone a favor - look-up how many surgery "mistakes" are conducted in 2012 by US hospitals. Yes, sure - American Healthcare is BEST IN THE WORLD! USA! USA! USA!

What a JOKE!

The ONLY way to "battle" this nightmare is PEACEFUL NON-COMPLIANCE! That's it.

If all Muslims should be removed from elected office or government work (and I am not saying they should or shouldn't be), then I think all Zionist Jews with dual citizenship (U.S. and Israel) should also be removed. And there sure are a whole lot more of them than there are Muslims in government.

I'm sorry, but isn't the ATA supposed to be for TRUCK DRIVERS? What the HELL do Benghazi, Muslims, and Seal Team 6 have to do with truck drivers? I'm a driver and I REFUSE to have anything to do with this. Until they start fighting for my rights as a truck driver, then they can shove it where the sun doesn't shine.

Hard to tell at any given moment how many semi trucks are operating within US borders, but supposedly there are over 9 million job holders of US origins within that industry, some 250,000 Canadians and 30,000 of SOB peoples as well.
Truck drivers are getting old,47-49 is average and most are not independents as only about 1/10th are.
Gov figures are all over the place, they say 15.5:million trucks with only 3.3 million drivers; so does that mean 4 out of 5 trucks are idle every 8 hoursAnyways there are but 300,000 are independent owner operators and of the owner oprators. 96 own more than 10 trucks with the rest owning mostly 1-6 semi rigs.
Then one must also remembber :hat many of the 15.5 million trucks are "Not Full Trucks or loads catagorys.

Who are primary whiners today well lets see Wal Mart, Hunt Brothers, UPS, coal, oil and Natural energy firms that own the trucks of the mysterious 15.5 million who pay drivers on the cheap.
Of thebtop a50 firms that "claim title to trucking most are owned and managed as internationals.
Firms such ASYRC, C.H. ROBINSON GLOBAL TRUCKING that are billion dollar profits a year.
Gop had many of the ones that are managers supporting the working mans candidate Romney.
A snake in the grass has no friends and in one of kost cut throat industries in US, union or not, snakes come in pits and more than one.

"I think all Khazar Zionist Jews with dual citizenship (U.S. and Israel) should also be removed. And there sure are a whole lot more of them than there are Muslims in government".
Over two dozen in the heart of DC at the last count. Khazars are not genuine semitic Jews. They are a Turkish people so action against them cannot be described as antisemitic Go for it!

As a former Teamster (warehouseman, not trucker), I like the idea. The only decent thing about today's American labor movement is the International Brotherrhood of Teamsters. BUT, you mitht want to visit "whitehouse.gov" and look up "Executive Order -- National Defense Resources Preparedness", which Barack Obama signed into law on Friday, March 16, 2012. Under its civilian labor draft" provisions, I suspect that a striking trucker would probably find his family behnd federal barbed wire. Am I right? Am I wrong? You decide, but I think your owners are one step ahead of you. Besides, most truck drivers in the regular military can drive an 18-wheeler tractor with very little training, while you end up behind federal barbed wire somewhere else.
I'm in the Philippines, so I'm not affected. Your GENERAL STRIKE won't change a thing, because your owners are smarter than you are.
