'Truckers for the Constitution' Plan to Slow D.C. Beltway, Arrest Congressmen

Police must detain 'accessories' to 'treason' or truckers will, organizer says

Tractor-trailer drivers will intentionally clog the inner loop of the Washington, D.C., beltway beginning on the morning of Oct. 11, according to a coordinator of the upcoming "Truckers Ride for the Constitution" rally.

Organizers of the three-day ride want to call attention to a litany of trucker frustrations and express their disapproval of national political leaders.

Earl Conlon, a Georgia trucker who is handling logistics for the protest, told U.S. News tractor-trailer drivers will circle the beltway "three lanes deep" as he rides with other participants to Congress to seek the arrest of congressmen for allegedly disregarding the Constitution.

The truckers circling I-495 will keep the left lane open for emergency vehicles, Conlon said, but "everybody that doesn't have a supporter sticker on their window, good luck: Nobody in, nobody out." The trucks will be going the 55 mile-per-hour speed limit.

D.C. commuters who wish to be allowed past the convoy must have "T2SDA" – an acronym for the event's original name, "Truckers to Shut Down America" – written on their vehicle, he said.

"It's going to be real fun for anyone who is not a supporter," Conlon said, "[and] if cops decide to give us a hard time, we're going to lock the brakes up, we're going to stop right there, we're going to be a three lane roadblock."

Zeeda Andrews, a former country music singer helping promote the protest, said last week participants would present demands to congressmen – including the impeachment of President Barack Obama – and give the congressmen an opportunity to agree to the demands in exchange for canceling the ride.

my guess is

that TPTB will have thousands of DHS and other cops there to throw a wrench on the wheels of this grand plan. In fact, the cops will probably shut down the 495 themselves to keep the truckers out and foil their plan. Guess we'll see.

Dang it!

I've been in DC area working for 3 days and leave in the morning. I sure hope an 8 am flight is early enough to beat the blockade since I am flying out of IAD...

I'm sure you all want to know what I am doing here *cough cough*. Let's just say I have been shooting a TON of fine firearms and capturing them on high speed camera with the Director's of the NRA museum. FUN!!

Down with BO(eh)NER!

Even though I come from a trucking family.

And even though I am part of a plot to arrest a senator or congressman on the charge of high treason and misdemeanors,

does not mean I have an association with any of these particular truck drivers.

update!! Comment form Truckers Group organizer Ben Pam on arrest

"We, the Truckers Riding For The Constitution only wish to awaken the American People to the complete disregard for the Constitution and to bring a message to Congress that We The People demand to be heard. We do not intend to arrest anyone or blockade DC until Obama is impeached. There are news articles and false statements going out from groups and people that are not a part of this movement. Please understand that these people do not speak for us."

Dad put it back together in '77.

I think they had some '60s series.

They were unique trucks

The "Bicycle fenders" were the signature aspect of that model, They were a heavy truck though. Made out of real metal! lol. I wish you still had it too man.

We should Baker Act, then commit some of them congress critters to an insane asylum for being psychotic, insane, and a danger to society.

Great Idea but.....

Come on now, let's face it....nobody is going to arrest any of those congresscritters :-(

Wish I were wrong ..... again!

I don't like...

I don't like the designation, "T2SDA" – an acronym for the event's original name, "Truckers to Shut Down America".

The purpose is to shut down the government, not America.

Okay, so maybe I'm being too picky in verbiage, but words mean things!

Does this make sense?

When you make a citizen's arrest of a Congressman, you better have PROOF of their treasonous act, not just allege they have committed a treasonous act; and it cannot be for anything they said on the floor of Congress - that is protected by the Constitution.
Law enforcement officers who arrest someone, allege crime or misdemeanor has occurred, and then it is proven in court by testimony, evidence and or a confession.

Or am I off base on this?

I would appreciate correction or elaboration.
