Truckers Ride For The Constitution
13 hours ago
The following is my reply to Paul Joseph Watson at Infowars. Infowars has chosen to go against this legal protest. Infowars has refused to work with the organizers of this event and are now lowering themselves to propaganda. The trucker protest is on!! Please do not be fooled by information coming out of the Alex Jones camp.

Dear Mr. Watson while we appreciate your interest in our story we would appreciate it even further if you reported correctly. To the reader of this article: The Virginia State Police are working closely with our organization and have assured us that no such orders to the National Guard exist.

The protest moves forward. Lt. James De Ford whom we are working very closely with assured ridefortheconstitution.org early this morning that the ride was within the legal rights of the people and the government nor local or state law enforcement have no plans to intervene. The National guard has NOT been called in and I495 and the Beltway will be open to the protesters as planned. Mr. Watson if you want to report on this story please report it correctly. You can reach me directly here: media@ridefortheconstitution.org .. Please print a retraction and contact us for further coverage. Thank you.

Yep

Everytime I see the British Royal family making headlines in US news.

It is great to see you back, Granger :-) - However, I Disagree.

Murdock v Penn, 319 U.S. 105: clearly established that no state could convert a secured liberty into a privilege and issue a license and a fee for it.

Shuttlesworth v Birm, 394 U.S. 147: Said that if the state does convert your right into a privilege and charge a license and a fee for it you can ignore the license and fee, and engage in the right with impunity. That means they can't punish you…they have to let you go.

And then there is Marbury v Madison :-)

((((PAF))))

Murdock's case, Murdock was one of Jehovah's Witness who asked for contributions in exchange for books and pamphlets.

That has nothing to do with a protest.. most protests are not about vending or collecting donations, but about human trafficing.. moving a mass of people from point a to point B within a time frame.

and Shuttlesworth .. Even though Justice Stewart's opinion for the Court mentioned that "the Supreme Court of Alabama performed a remarkable job of plastic surgery upon the face of the ordinance", the Court reversed Shuttlesworth's conviction because the circumstances indicated that the parade permit was denied not to control traffic, but to censor ideas

As I said, the permit is to "control traffic", human, truck or whatever...

Good come-back.

Thus:

"And then there is Marbury v Madison :-)"

The Granger back in the house - ooh rah

Now to your comment, which of course, I am going to 100% disagree with - lol

How can a protest against big government START with asking the big government for permission. And if that big government isnt following the rules - what good is following the rules going to do for you?

Sure - if the other team is cheating you can sit there and wax poetic about standing on principal - but when the stakes of the game are beyond a W and L in the stats column - you best consider playing the game to win - no matter what.
I will give you some wisdom via Disney:

Jack Sparrow: [after Will draws his sword] Put it away, son. It's not worth you getting beat again.

Will Turner: You didn't beat me. You ignored the rules of engagement. In a fair fight, I'd kill you.

Jack Sparrow: That's not much incentive for me to fight fair, then, is it?

And may I remind everyone just how "unfair" those colonial dogs were fighting(who I believe won the war correct?). See, the Brits thought is all nice and proper to line up like gentlemen(although much better armed and trained) and walk up to each other and fight like civilized men. Many colonials thought this was silly, so they decided winning was really more important than pomp and circumstance.

I do believe that Washington himself broke a "gentlemen's" agreement of war by crossing the Deleware in the night AND in winter to attack. That was a no no.

And as for pissing people off - no offense - but I saw more trucks on my way up 91 to Hartford today - funny thing about the picture again though - I notice no trucks in the left lane - again following the curtly rules set forth by the DOT that trucks and trailers are NOT ALLOWED in the left lane. How very gentile of them to play by the rules.

First,

Let's not forget the constitution bill of rights gives us the right, which we exercize legally by applying for the proper permit and paying the fees and other costs, to have the protest.

Following the rules is doing me a lot of good by giving me peace and enabling me to continue to make political stands, with support.

Which is more important, peace or victory? If it's victory, then you are talking war, and while wars even have rules, it's those who don't follow the rules the crate the most damage, destruction, and if destruction is the end game, there isn't any winners, so peace is the better option, which the path to peace victory is staying the path, because life is not about destruction, but about creating.

I think it's great that they organized it and made their point, and I'm sure many of those trucks you saw on the 91 support them (unless their Mexican) and would be there if they could.

You might find Captain Luke Ryan a better example than Jack Sparrow http://privateerlukeryan.com/

I think I am going to make this fictional character quote day

Granger: "and if destruction is the end game, there isn't any winners, so peace is the better option,"

'It needs but one foe to breed a war, not two, Master Warden,' answered Eowyn. 'And those who have no swords can still die upon them. Would you have the folk of Gondor gather herbs only, when the Dark Lord gathers armies? And it is not always good to be healed in body. Nor is it always evil to die in battle, even in bitter pain. Were I permitted, in this dark hour I would choose the latter'."

Seems you are content to die when you federal overlords damn well tell you to - like the good servent you are. Maybe its the Irish in me - but sorry lass - I got a wee bit of snap left in the punch. And I wont be askin for a permit when the time comes.

I don't see it like that

I see your posisition as an excuse to not act.

The pen is mightier than the sword, thus with the permit, the swords remain buried within their sheaths, and the drones with their lazers, and rockets remain in their hangers, as I take to the streets with all the other herb gathers, in peace.

Agreed !

'Hey, we are going to go to Washington to show them who's boss'
Yes Sir Officer Thuglet, where can i park ? LMAO

How many times has this fizzled out over the decades?

I'll be interested to see if anything happens this time.

I was thinking the same thing

I'll be interested too.

Let the fireworks begin! ;)
