Mainstream media is covering the LACK of an event as you can see if a general google search:

https://www.google.com/search?q=dc+trucker+protest

And it looks so small at first....

but from Denver...

Hey it's actually happening...

This fellow did an interpretation of things so far for day one. H/T DP posters below.

hat tip to Bob-45

So then there was this lag in reporting but it was kinda like...getting dark back there. But this came through:

H/T Bob-45 again.

And then this! Aha!!!! So that's what they are up to: driving in 24 hour shifts. Sweet.

And then...what the heck is this and what about November 19th????

H/T Barracuda_trader.

AP filed this

This came in from Ben Swann's shop:

10/12 coverage continues.

We open with a bit of a bummer. Seems there's a lot of stock photos and old images being floated as from this event.

Live streaming from Earl Conlon's cab! (happened for a while, it was cool).
http://www.ustream.tv/channel/dc-trucker-ride

Barracuda_Trader said they had up around 25,000 viewers on that stream!

As drivers prepared to get some chow and a sleep, Earl Conlon indicated he'd try and updated his facebook page:

As veterans convocate tomorrow (10/13) let's continue to pray (those of us who do) for safety for all concerned, truckers, supporters, vets and the communities and people they interact with. Everybody else send good vibes. Vibe on man.

This is a must-see!

Release the Sandy Hook video.

Public sentiment apparently

Public sentiment apparently approves of this protest. I agree.

Couldn't help but think of this song...

C.W. McCall's 'Convoy' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NwnZ5uiiWDc

Let them truckers roll, 10-4

Keep on Truckin'

It was probably the pandas.

I'm confused--

there seems to be an ongoing argument about whether there is an value in this 'event' or not--

what is happening here?

Does anyone know what the goal/aim of this is?

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Don't get angry but all I can say is.

YAWN. This is accomplishing nothing. No coverage. No DC shutdown. Nothing. If not for the dailypaul I wouldn't even know about it. If anything they are helping the DC economy.

Hmmm. You do have a point.

I don't use facebook or twitter. I tell you what, we will wait a week or two and see what comes of it. Deal?

I don't deal

And all deals are off with this socialist system anyway.

RAND PAUL or NOT AT ALL

LOL!

I can't argue with that.

i'll give them a bump

at least they're off their sofa.

Just the type of response I would expect

from a "former" democrat. It doesn't effect the truth of my statement.

former democrat?

why don't you back that up?

"The two weakest arguments for any issue on the House floor are moral and constitutional"
Ron Paul

Sure

Aside from the total irrelevance of your response to my statement and and feeble attempt at turn my observation into an attack on me, which is a democrat tactic.

Subtle but telling. Like the anti Semites who call themselves anti Zionists. Poser.

that's your proof?

let me spell that one out for you.
republicans can't continue the shutdown because they are as irrelevant to the average americans daily life as the democrats are.
i thought that was pretty easy to understand.

Million Vet March on the Memorials 9 A.M. Today

World War II Memorial in D.C. Oct. 13 @ 9 A.M
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Million-Vet-March-on-the-Memo...

Join fellow Veterans and Americans at the war memorials in Washington DC on Sunday October 13th at 9 AM and at memorials across these United States.
Description
We are all military brats, current and former military spouses and some veterans. We cannot express how utterly disappointed we were that our Greatest Generation were being used as political pawns in the ongoing government shutdown and budget crisis. This should never be the case.

We do not care what political leanings you may be; be it liberal, conservative, Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, Independent or whatever. The actions of the U.S. government this week with regard to barricading and shutting down the World War II Memorial to veterans, that may or may not be on their last trip to Washington DC, is a despicable act of cowardice.

Lets just see what the Sunday News has to say

The MSM is going to report this event today?
Let's just see if they ARE the mainstream media or just a lap dog PR department of the USSA today.
I don't watch the crap much, except to see how they have decided to spin reality...or what they want to pass off as such.

RAND PAUL or NOT AT ALL

You've latched onto this...

like your dad, grampa, uncle and brother were all truckers...

It was probably the pandas.

Where are

Glenn Beck and Alex Jones...one would think as patriot as these two men claim to be, they would at least show up or send a reporter.

The story gets twisty there

Santili is wicked insanely angry with AJ for reporting the sovereign rap (and other charges) and has called AJ out as just about every name in the book. I don't guess those two are getting together for a brew anytime soon.

Glen Beck and ANYTHING is a walk-away combo for me. However my guess is that this didn't have the punch and Glen is out there looking for larger things to jump on and take credit for.

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.

Wasn't it

Alex Jones who first reported Thursday night the national guard was going to show up on the highways? Where are the national guard? I believe people should reexamine their attachments to Alex Jones and Glenn Beck. If neither of them get a camera out there today, their audience numbers should take a hit.

Yeah that's part of it

Santili is pissed at AJ for that too.

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.

How can one mention AJ and GB in the same sentence.

AJ is a patriot.

GB is an MSM hack sellout who has stabbed our movement in the back openly and publicly twice at crux times.

Glenn Beck is no friend...

Was Alex Jones in Washington supporting the truckers and vets? I must have missed him. I guess the national guard on the highways kept him away.

So, the federales want to

So, the federales want to play, eh, by stopping a participant traveling 39 mph. Personally, I'd be tempted to start at 39 mph and proceed systematically to drop the speed DOWNWARD from there. Yes, I'd be tempted indeed.

To allow the truckers an

To allow the truckers an escape route, maybe some patriotic Americans in cars and NOT affiliated with the truckers or this event could enter their lanes and slow traffic below 40 mph so the truckers have an excuse. Keep dropping the speed and blocking all the lanes until DC drops to its knees. I suspect at least 100 patriotic participants would be required though as the goons will surely stop anyone violating their rules. It's one way to deal with fascists who want to play.

I know one thing

as much as i like this idea , so far it has been terribly organized. Nothing but bits and pieces of footage that really don't tell much of anything at all. Live streams that seem to not work or only last a few minutes, no website coverage no nothing. Most people will never know this even happened...Then to top that off they plan another protest on the 19th of November which will probably be worse as most people will be gearing up for Thanksgiving with their families.
