The final invasion into DC was completed with 43 bobtail trucks and between 80 to 120 four wheel type vehicles. Supporters continued to line the route throughout the day in support of the group, with Overpass for Obama's Impeachment organization being a strong presence. According to the General, the route was scouted out today to provide the truckers with the closest possible access to assist the hundreds of veterans expected to descend upon the WWII memorial tomorrow. Only bobtail trucks will be going into DC again tomorrow due to the streets along the planned route being unable to accommodate the larger tractor-trailer rigs.
The plan for tomorrow will be for truckers to ride single file to keep lanes open for the veterans to easily enter DC without any traffic from their protest to impede their progress. General Lee indicated it was time to support our American veterans and thank them for the price they paid to insure our freedoms. According to Lee, the truckers will figuratively lead the way to ensure the veterans gain access to their memorials.
Earlier today, the group changed their hashtag to #T4VETS in order to place their full support behind veterans who have honored America with their service. When the truckers make their rounds into DC tomorrow, the General stated these war heroes will be able to hear their horns blow in support since the identified route takes them within one mile of the memorials.
While riding the downtown streets, General Lee stated it looked like authorities were planning to barricade streets that provided access to the open air memorials. He was unsure if the blocking of certain approaches was because of the crowd expected tomorrow or the traffic. The truckers have called for the memorials to remain open without barricades or intrusion by law enforcement officials. It was mentioned on the live broadcast that members of Congress – Stockman, Lee, and Gohmert-- will be on hand at the memorial along with the veterans.
General Lee expressed being infuriated that anyone in this administration and the executive branch would have the balls, the gall or send the middle finger to American veterans while playing a political game. He stated this action should ignited a fire in the American people. The General has called for reinforcements. He is asking that anyone who is close enough to show your support by getting to DC tomorrow for the veterans and urges everyone to support this effort because of the arrogance of this administration. In the words of General Lee, "Don't mess with US vets."
The truck with the multiple HDTV screens was a huge hit with the truckers as well as the supporters. A computer program directed the screens to scroll through pictures of the Constitution, support messages for the event, and the hashtag #T2SDA. The unique moving van size vehicle took the point all day during their ride around the beltway and through DC. Tomorrow, the hashtag #T4VETS will be displayed on the HD screens to support the nation's veterans.
Support for the event has been phenomenal. Lee said vehicles that passed the convoy while they were cruising the DC area would hang their arms out of the vehicle windows and give the "thumbs up" sign. Morale with the truckers and supporters have remain high despite the weather and slow, basically non-existent MSM coverage and various issues that have occurred during the event.
Neither the General nor Pete Santilli have been able to contact Zeeda Andrews, one of the organizers, as she has been busy with housekeeping issues throughout the day. Zeeda had yet to be informed of the 24 hour US MSM blackout; however, the media has been asked on air by Santilli to appear at the war memorials tomorrow. Larry Ward has been designated the official spokesperson for the veterans march tomorrow due to his association with the veterans groups and his previous military service.
Santilli has vowed to stay on the air between now and when the truckers show up at the WWII memorial tomorrow with the veterans. In the meantime, The Chaos Show, hosted by Linx from No Messiah, will air until midnight tonight playing assorted music for your listening pleasure.
Anyone wishing to donate fuel or food for the truckers are asked to get to the Doswell staging area at the Doswell All American Plaza at I-95, exit 98, 10222 Kings Dominion Hwy in Doswell, Virginia.
This event has been outstanding in every way. Everyone has come together in support of a common cause despite attempts to derail this protest from every angle. Be proud America. It is all of you who have tirelessly supported this stand for our Constitution and nation who have inspired these guys riding the beltway keeping their morale high and showing that America is in strong support of their trucking community. These guys stood up for you and you have answered the call.
Give yourself a hand!
