Posted on 10/10/2013 8:30:24 AM PDT by Mortrey
Sources within the Department of Transportation have revealed that their plan to use National Guard resources to close federally funded Interstate Route 495, circling the nations capital, have been approved by unknown White House officials and will be implemented on Friday morning, October 11, in order to thwart the three day Trucker slowdown announced on the Capitol Beltway starting that date, using the federal government shutdown as justification.

I 495 is like a moat around King Obama’s castle. Better man the battlements, barbarian truckers are coming!
Well, the NG closing the Beltway will save a lot of truckers wasting their $4/gal fuel .......
Let the games begin
oh boy..i expected as much. the question then becomes will the truckers try to break it?
Does anybody understand that bammy is provoking and will not stop!
This is a vengeful, selfish, evil, arrogant little man who will not be told NO. He will destroy the country before he leaves. Mark my words!
Obama has never served in the US Military.
Obama is as incompetent a military leader as can be elected to be Commander in Chief.
Obama leaks Secret Military information to boost himself politically, which commonly results in deaths of the Warriors involved in the Military operation, as well as retaliation threats to their families.
Obama also has a psycho mean streak which renders him unfit to be in authority of anything in the US Federal Government.
For example, the Pay Our Military Act was signed into Federal Law by Obama on 9-30-2013.
Obama KNEW that death benefits were covered when he signed the bill into Law on 9-30-2013 !
This documents that Commander in Chief Obama CHOSE to punish, after death, those who had given their last full measure of devotion by dictating that Funeral Expenses be denied to HIS dead Warriors.
Obama has thus shown himself to be a ghoulish tyrant who is more than willing to inflict maximum pain on his own people, to borrow an expression that Obama used recently against his fellow tyrant in Syria.
Please post on this thread the hotlinks to any news articles on the 26 slain Warriors that Obama has refused to pay funeral expenses for, prior to Obamas yesterdays CYA legal action.
Obama must be held accountable for this ghoulish Dereliction of Duty as the Commander in Chief.
are truckers still associated with the Teamsters union?
Not sure who the good guys are in this.
The truckers are union guys, no?
Might be a little more effective than banning curbside luggage check-in to thwart terrorists of a certain religious persuasion which cannot be named from boarding airlines with box cutters . . .
Probably so !
Incidently , isn't the White House FEDERALLY OWNED property ?
Maybe we should demand the Park Service close the White House and grounds since there is NOTHING THERE THAT IS ESSENTIAL !
The several vacations and golfing trips have already demonstrated that !!
Even Barry isn’t this STUPID....he would be CRUCIFIED even by the left.
Unlikely as Nat.Guard would need state gov to approve unless they are ‘Activated’ into fed service at which point the Posse Comitatus Act would be in play.
I’m thinking 2014&2016 are going to be a landslide of epic proportion.
Show up today, show up the day after, ask the nation, if there is a shutdown, where does he get the money much less the authority to do this? DOT is not authorized to call up the NG.
Fascist dictators need to be overthrown.
Not gonna happen.
You are so right. I believe we have a crazy person in the White House.
The Spite House are huddling in fear of civil disobediende.
The biggest growth names in the truck freight industry are non-union. Places like ABF, Old Dominion, Ward's and others. As a bonus, these guys not only deliver and pick up your freight without an attitude, they can actually be seen using a pallet jack to help you get loaded and unloaded quicker.
