Truckers roar to D.C. with impeachment movement
WND ^ | 29 Sept 2013 | Michael \Karl

Posted on 09/30/2013 2:24:23 AM PDT by maddog55

In less than two weeks, thousands of truckers will descend on Washington, D.C., driving their big-rigs and calling for the restoration of a constitutional republic – but now their plan has taken a new twist: Their friends and families will simultaneously join other Americans rallying on overpasses across the nation for Obama’s impeachment.

The Truckers’ Ride for the Constitution movement has a new ally in their protest against what organizers say is corruption in government and a trashing of the Constitution. The group is teaming up with Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment to line the routes into Washington with flags during the Oct. 11-13 event.

Both Houses of Congress are tentatively scheduled to be in session Oct. 11.

Truckers Ride for the Constitution leader and organizer Zeeda Andrews, a country singer and former truck driver, said Overpasses Founder James Neighbors reached out to her, suggesting the two groups form an alliance. Neighbors said the partnership is a “natural” merger for a common cause.

The House of Representatives needs to impeach most of the Senators who are in breach of their oaths of office. Unfortunately, only the Senate has the authority of holding a trial to convict the impeached Senators.

Truth speaks to the fleeting power of the Obama fascist movement.

Good read about Obama fascism and how it works:

I hope many thousands of truckers show up.

Wouldn't it just be the remaining dozen or so who got to vote?

“Unfortunately, only the Senate has the authority of holding a trial to convict the impeached Senators.”.....

while holding an impeachment trial may be controlled by the Senate, WE, THE PEOPLE have the power to vote them out.

IMO, “impeachment” is a farce. If you recall Clinton’s impeachment, Immediately following the vote to impeach him, the demodummies held a lawn party to celebrate. Ba$tards, all of them.

The Constitution forbids hanging, allowing only removal and exclusion from Federal offices. However, the impeached and convicted Senator may be liable to hanging upon trial and conviction for treason in a time of war. Democrats have expressed their desire to see Republicans so punished for opposing the will of the Democrats.

Aside from Jimmy Hoffa Jr. writing a letter that was read by Senator Cruz, I haven't heard any condemnation by the Teamsters of anything Obama. As of right now, who knows if Jimmy Jr. is even alive since writing that letter? I think that the Wildcat Truckers are the only truckers in on this protest.

The Teamsters are small stuff in trucking these days. When trucking was deregulated in 1980, non-union trucking rapidly took over.

The Teamsters union, like the UAW, now represents a lot of occupations not related to the original makeup of the union.

They do represent UPS, but I'll bet my next SocSec deposit there won't be any UPS trucks in that protest.

Obamacare is “TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION.”

Obamacare has nothing to do with care, health or medical treatment.

Obamacare has everything to do with a mandatory insurance that everyone must buy at the point of the Federal gun.

Obamacare Medical Insurance premiums are under the control of the IRS.

These insurance premiums can be raised every year by the IRS with no involvement by Congress.

Thus, all the present and future Democrat rulers have to do is tell the IRS how much taxpayer dollars need to be forcefully extracted from the taxpayers, and the IRS will extract the money for them.

Hence, Obamacare Insurance is “ taxation without representation” that Traitor John Roberts of THE NINE SUPREMES has ruled it to be above the control of the US Congress, and it will stay until Obamacare is ABOLISHED!

It is easy to recognize the obvious PONZI SCHEME called Obamacare.

Obamacare has nothing to do with health, care, or medicine.

Obamacare has EVERYTHING to do with insurance.

Obamacare is a Federal Insurance Monopoly.

Obamacare is in violation of US Anti-Trust Laws.

Obamacare is a Federal Insurance Premium Collection Agency, aka FIPCA for Obamacare.

We CONSERVATIVES know that there will be other future Federal Insurance Ponzi Schemes, right down to the Insurance Premium collected for the inhaling of the EPA ruled toxic gas CO2.

Then FIPCA will be there to collect that CO2 Insurance premium from all citizens.

But I digress, so let us focus on the present.

If Boehner Caves In to the Court of Public Opinion, which is run by the Low Information Liberal “Mainstream” Media, and Obamacare is funded, Obama can then raise every year or quarter his Obamacare insurance premiums as high as he wants to, and the sorry US Congress can’t do anything about it.

Congress will thus be bypassed, and will no longer be needed in the future to fund the vote buying schemes of the social engineering POTUS.

Could Boehner be stupid enough to come up with his own Boehnercare Ponzi Scheme?

First the bikers and now the truckers.

No disrespect meant to white collar workers, but these blue collar folks are making everyone look like pantywaist wimps.

They should be accompanied by suburbia’s SUV’s, Benz, and Beamers. We’re all Americans here and we all lose if the country goes Red.
