    Default Truckers protest ultimatum...impeach Obama

    If oil is the blood of our economy, truckers are the veins.

    Their protest in DC is full speed ahead with the purpose of addressing the corruption of our constitution complete with a list of demands including that Obama be impeached;

    The hitch: one of those demands is that Obama be removed from office, a request the organizers find perfectly reasonable. Obama committed treason by allegedly funneling weapons from Benghazi, Libya, to al-Qaida-linked Syrian rebels, said online radio host Peter Santilli, who is heading up a parallel protest in California.
    The protest is scheduled for Oct 11;

    For three days, the organizers plan to have the truckers � along with other supporters driving in cars and motorcycles � rumble through the city. Independent truckers with their trailers will drive around I-495, the D.C. beltway.

    "We would actually like to be like the Egyptians, they all showed up and got something done," Andrews said.

    Dang it.
    I'm going to be on a trout fishing vacation in BC when this happens.
    Hopefully the impeachment proceedings won't affect US Customs procedures upon my return.
    If we amplify everything we hear nothing.

    Thank you truckers!
    I had heard something significantly different...no confirmation yet...I'm gonna assume its BS if i dont see it in the next 24 hours.

    We're thankfully geared up to avoid the 11-13 mess. If even only a couple hundred show up its going to create some wide scale damage.

    If they get the turn out they're calling for? You think what we have right now is a shutdown? When truckers dont make deliveries...that'll be a shutdown.

    "committed treason by allegedly"

    Always the best case for treason.

    And I'll bet Obama will have more armed support there than Benghazi.

    The last thing the left wants is folk addressing the corruption of the constitution.

    It's their bread and butter.

    That wouldnt be hard. Standing guards in DC number in the thousands not including the long guns on the avenues of access.

    DC was designed on the Paris model don't forget it also is impeccable for giving snipers incredible sight lines.

    The fact of the matter is their lack fo doing anything is going to be the issue. They could just decide to use DC like one massive truck stop.

    The one thing that really could make ALL of this go sideways is the potential for President Obama to Nationalize the Trucking Industry. It's not impossible and it could happen at a speed that would make normal remedy's impossible. If i have a fear in this. It would be that.

    No That was the bikers. Which showed up to the tune of...we want to say 800k maybe Potentially more but i know that's the LOWEST number i heard on turn out so i'll say that. Worked out fairly well for the people listening. It only further annoyed those who have imperial ambitions.

    I'll have to dig around for it. But the fact is the media downplayed the whole thing.

    It wasn't all in one spot they had routes through the city and multiple deployment areas. They ran through several routes. So that can be why the numbers might be lower. I'll see if i can dig it up for you tomorrow.
