    Convoy to D.C. – Truckers To Shut Down America in October

    Last year the American Truckers Association prepared a report for Congress highlighting the susceptibility of the nation’s just-in-time delivery system, the majority of which is made possible by the transport and delivery of freight. In the event of a catastrophic disaster such as a war that drives fuel prices through the roof or even a natural disaster such as a solar flare that renders electronic trucks inoperable, there would be a “a swift and devastating impact on the food, healthcare, transportation, waste removal, retail, manufacturing, and financial sectors,” according to the report.

    The backbone of commerce in the United States are the truck drivers who spend long hours on the road ensuring our very survival as a modern society.

    But with fuel prices continuing to rise, wages dropping, jobs becoming harder to find, and rampant corruption in Washington D.C. furthering the country’s economic death spiral, America’s truck drivers, like the majority of our fellow citizens, are fed up.

    Between October 11th and 13th they have called for a general strike, asking truck drivers around the country to refuse to haul freight, a move that could carry with it a significant impact on the American economy.

    The protest calls for truckers to make their way to Washington D.C. in a massive convoy in an effort to call attention to, among other things, the Benghazi cover-up, the recent attack which killed 25 members of Seal Team 6, ever rising fuel prices, and claims that President Obama has engaged in treasonous crimes.

    Moreover, they’ve requested that the American people join them in solidarity by not shopping or engaging in any economic activity that benefits the government or their corporate interests.

    The American people are sick and tired of the corruption that is destroying America! We therefore declare a GENERAL STRIKE on the weekend of October 11-13, 2013! Truck drivers will not haul freight! Americans can strike in solidarity with truck drivers!

    Breaker 1 9 calling on all Trucker to shut America down for three days October 11-13. The American people are bleeding out with no relief in sight, It is time to change the NEWS. Let us show our elected officials that we are 100% fed up with corruption and the blatant disregard of the Constitution that they swore to defend.

    Bob tail it hammer down to the bull$hit city with flags flying high.

    My fellow Patriot this effort is to support the truckers in a major shut down of America ion a 3 day strike October 11th thru 13th.

    Obamacare will be in effect and most people will be ready to take action. No commerce on those days stock up on items that you will need. No banking no shopping no money transactions. It does not matter If a million or 50 roll through DC in this effort. Congress will listen to We The People. Which is remove Obama from office for crimes of treason and misdemeanors. We want Congressional hearing on Benghazi and Seal Team 6. Louis Learner put in jail. No amnesty, remove all Muslims in our government that do not uphold the Constitution. Remove Eric Holder from office for crimes against the people and the Constitution. Last but not least is Fuel prices.

    Via: The Truckers to Shutdown America Facebook Page

    The protest comes on the heels of a massive biker rally held in Washington D.C., and other grass roots efforts to hold the government to account for various Constitutional transgressions including everything from stripping Americans of their right to bear arms, to forced health care mandates soon to be implemented across the country (with exemptions for members of Congress and corporations with insider access, of course).

    Calls of accountability have grown louder over the years from all political sides, starting most notably with the Tea Party movement and progressing to Occupy Wall Street.

    The corruption and need for real change in America’s government has transcended political lines.

    If the hundreds of thousands of truckers across America who keep our delivery systems running efficiently were to join together and stop hauling freight for even a week, the impact would be devastating and could not be ignored.

    There’d be no food on the shelves, no fuel at our gas stations, and no medical supplies at our pharmacies and hospitals.

    Congress and the President, who would like nothing more than to be perceived as our saviors and benefactors, would have no choice but to address the concerns of freight haulers, because the American people would feel the effects of the protest directly. And, chances are they’d be in the streets protesting themselves because of lack of access to essential goods they can’t live without.

    We may often feel as if we, as individuals, have no power against the mighty United States government, but as Karl Denninger points out, we have much more power than we think.

    If we get just 10% of America on board the entire game changes.

    Especially when the business world — and government — realize that the next one is Black Friday weekend.

    Just 10% of Americans can change the course of history, much like they did during the Revolutionary War.

    Whether it happens in October, during Black Friday sales this November, or at some point in the future, this seemingly untenable situation is coming to a head.

    Robert Kennedy may have said it best:

    A revolution is coming — a revolution which will be peaceful if we are wise enough; compassionate if we care enough; successful if we are fortunate enough — But a revolution which is coming whether we will it or not. We can affect its character; we cannot alter its inevitability.

    Robert Kennedy
    Senate Floor
    May 9, 1966

    The snowball in America continues to roll down the hill, gaining speed and mass.

          A truck strike, ain’t going to work and it isn’t going to happen to any significance. The government has nothing to do transportIon with other than to strip money out of it.
          If transport moguls like Swift, Schneider, JBHunt, got involved they might have something then, but not in its present makeup.
          The only people that are pushing this thing is Owner/Operators and for good reasons. Buying a rig is like buying a home and paying it off in 5years, that’s no shit either.
          Operators have been decimated in the last ten years. Freight rates haven’t moved up any. Freight brokers need to be castrated. (Leaches in the industry) CH Robinson being the biggest of all.
          The last time I heard of an impending strike there was a really good idea of really how to get one going. STOP THE FUEL TRUCKS!!

              …here is a secret that they don’t teach in truck driving school:

              To pass a vehicle, you actually have to go faster than that vehicle.

                Unfortunately some drivers are idiots, and try to pass another truck when they can only go one to two mph faster. Also John Q Public doesn’t realize that most fleet trucks are governed (speed limiter), for insurance reasons, companies receive a lower insurance rate, and try to get better miles per gallon by not allowing their drivers to be able to put there foot in it.

                  I am quite aware of engine governors.

                  It is both moronic and inconsiderate to attempt to pass a rig when your own rig can’t go faster than the one you are trying to pass.

                  Spread the word to truckers:

                  To pass a vehicle, you actually have to go faster than that vehicle.

                LOL – Nothing ticks me off more than a fellow trucker who whips out in front of you from the granny lane to pass another truck – THEN, stays at the same speed as the truck he is supposed to be passing. He’ll sit neck and neck for a few miles, then slowly pass – THEN, when he makes the pass HE HAMMERS DOWN. Yep, they do it all the time to me as well. It’s intentionally done to make you angry. Just cowards in trucks trying to intimidate and bully fellow truckers from behind the big rig – ’cause they wouldn’t dare do it to your face…
                As far as the strike/convoy – hope it pans out. I can’t make it – but all the drivers who do – will be in my Prayers.

              • @Johnie Boy Outhouse, Your smart butted comment has nothing to do with this article. It’s losers like you that always spit on those that do yet where’s your comment on those that don’t like the 47%. You have no idea what it’s like trying to make a living with a company truck that goes 62 mph and a 100 mph dispatcher or all the mega companies that expect their drivers to be creative with their log books at the drivers expense or else you sit in a dirt parking lot for 4 days with no pay. What a Truck Driver actually goes through every day when people like you cut them off & pass them on the right. Maybe if you drove safe Americas Truck Drivers would show you some respect in return but that’s common sense and they don’t teach common sense, you either have or You don’t.

                • It’s sad that you feel that way. Company driver or independent, your all in the same profession and that driving a truck. You should be ashamed to put down another truck driver. Company driver or independent ,there’s pro’s and con’s either way but your still truck drivers and the shut down will benefit the company drivers just as much. Mostly it will benefit the nation. So it seems it would be best if you just kept quiet and just kept driving. He already told you that they didn’t expect you to join them , knowing you would lose your job. Think about it FIRE.

                Here is something you have not learned obviously:

                1. Trucks are governed to only go so fast

                2. Generally a “slow” truck may only be governed to go 5 Mph faster than the trucks it’s passing.

                3. A trucks speed can be compromised by the slightest of inclines.

                4. Thank a trucker– Everything you have was transported at one time or another by a truck!

              Choice of a Friday-Sunday seems odd. Why not shut down the entire week? Also, post the home address of some of the worst of the worst such as Eric Holder, Lloyd Blankfein of Goldman Sachs and Hugh Grant of Monsanto…Diane Feinstein, Jerkoff Lee, Chucky Schumer…and where does M. Bloomberg live?

              The worst villains should be constantly feeling afraid that a lone wolf sniper is about to pull the trigger and send them to hell.

              Look at how aipac intimidates everyone. Don’t tow the line and they drum up dirt and disseminate such on msm. If that doesn’t work, they arrange an “accident.”

              Truck driving should have the same glamor as flying a 747. Pay should be equitable as well. How to shut down the fed?

          • I personally recommend rather than trying to get drivers to shut down for one day ( they have tried it many times and it never works ) that we try (think about it after you finish laughing ) NOT HAULING TOILET PAPER, TISSUE PAPER , DIAPERS, OR TAMPONS FOR ONE –TWO WEEKS. anyplace in the country.

              I remember reading a joke some years ago that said if we really wanted to stop terrorists in Afghanistan we could do it one day. Just send 1,000 American women & take away their PMS drugs for 1 day.

              I wouldn’t want to face them. They’d take away Al Qaida’s rockets & shove them up their… well, you know.

          Obama Waives Ban on Arming Terrorists to Aid al-Qaida

          “President Obama has made it official: He, as commander in chief of the United States military, is publicly aiding al-Qaida, and he has now waived U.S. law to do it.

          On Monday, Obama officially waived prohibitions in Sections 40 and 40A of the Arms Export Control Act so that he can give military assistance to “vetted” terrorist-linked opposition groups in Syria.”

                Will two tours in Viet Nam do??

                There is no way for me to prove what I am writing is true but, here it goes.
                I am a midwestern resident originally from the east coast.
                My family has been prepping for over 10 years now and I have been on this blog for a few years now.

                My major disagreement with KY Mom is that she has no opinions of her own, just links that, more often than not, detract from the discussion and the articles.

                BTW, I am not from the ‘hood’ nor did I vote for the current resident. In fact, since I returned from SE Asia, I have never voted for a Democrat.
                If you are going to pile on, please get your diatribes correct.
                I hope the info above has helped you all to denigrate me in a more accurate manner.

              There is no need to denigrate the good people of Kentucky. Due to my husband’s job, I have lived in many different places and in several other countries. I was not born and raised here, but gladly adopt this state.

              Rest assured. As a former teacher, I can read and spell very well.

              I have learned a lot from the articles posted and from the comments and links that others have shared. Thank you Mac and to all who contribute information. I will continue to share links that others might find useful or of interest.

              Maybe YOU should focus on contributing something useful or of interest, instead of just INSULTING others.

            Hmm. I do believe we are way pass ‘impeach’ and clearly moving towards ‘imprison’.

            The U.S. Marshall Service is obligated at this point to arrest, without warrant, I might add for high crimes and treason against the United States of America.

            And I quote:

            (d) Each United States marshal, deputy marshal, and any other official of the Service as may be designated by the Director may carry firearms and make arrests without warrant for any offense against the United States committed in his or her presence, or for any felony cognizable under the laws of the United States if he or she has reasonable grounds to believe that the person to be arrested has committed or is committing such felony.

            Ahem. TREASON = FELONY

            Sounds pretty clear cut to me. When Congress fails to act, it becomes the DUTY of the Marshalls to uphold the LAW and make warrantless arrests of the villain in chief and several others.

              Wait until the SOB is out of office to arrest or imprison him, or he will be pardoned by Biden. Frankly I expect the SOB to resign after the next election and receive a blanket pardon from Biden for all of his crimes.

              That would piss off the Clintons too because it would give Biden two years to cement the Democratic nomination.

                It would be wonderful if Obama would resign, under any conditions, JUST DO IT! Surely the country isn’t so far gone that it would vote for Biden. He’ll have blown everything up by then, including himself, it’s to be hoped. Don’t want the Hildebeast, so it’s tricky. I also see a problem with Kerry, in zombie form, staggering back into the mix, claiming that he saved the US from the Middle East and smoothed out our relationship with Russia. He may award himself the Nobel Peace Price, that tarnished piece of crap, and will impress a lot of loony college kids. Hooray for the truckers and bikers and if you get a chance, throw a monkey wrench into whatever piece of the government you can manage, without breaking the law or causing problems for yourself. The objective is to waste their time and money, not your life.

            So i just have to ask is this strike about making things better for drivers or just a place for people to complain about the black man in the whitehouse. Because if its that go to the polls this strike has to have a focus on driver issues and if you think our issues come from Oboma alone then you are badly misguided. most of the companies we work for today are the reason for the rules the way they are and the drivers accociations are no better. The rules have to change feul costs have to go down. But this is where the focus needs to be all the wing nuts have to be kept in line or this strike is doomed to failer.

            However, I fully support the call for a strike. This is beginning to sound like Greece and other European countries.

              I wish the drivers well. I also believe this is a trap for them (the drivers). The gov’t has allowed Mexican drivers a broader area to drive, they are paid less and can be easily subsidized by the fed as are the rails. I just hope this isn’t an action that’ll trigger Obama and company to counter react against the truckers.

              Keep the drivers in prayer and pray for good to come from their actions.

                Watch the intensity and insanity needle go through the roof about the time the administration starts arresting truckers for obstruction. And then replace them with cheaper more cost effective Mexican drivers and rigs.

                If this comes to pass, you could see atrocities on a daily/weekly basis. I pray it does not come to this, but you keep on ignoring the will of the AMERICAN people, and aiding and supporting our enemies at our expense and see where that leads.

            I recall when Truckers Really did it big back in early 1970′s. I think when Jimmy Carter was Pres(?) due to high priced fuel and tons of bad regs against truckers and Especially Indep truckers.

            That last time was Massive nationwide. Truckers did it for at Least Two weeks straight! They had entire freeways shut down. Parked huge semis in all lanes acorss freeway and flat out Refused to move an inch.

            On TV news it showed fed fbi and us marshals climbing up truck steps to drivers doors to warn truckers move it or get arrested etc.

            Them truckers also had guns and told the feds Fuck You! This IS My HOME as I Live in My Truck and anybody that enters My home gets shot. The feds cops Backed off and Fast.

            But this on a weekend when congress is all gone etc probobly aint worth doing. Truckers a few yrs ago did same thing. Drove past capitol and whitehouse blasting horns etc…So what changed? Nothing.

            Back in 70′s when it was Two weeks long and really affected store good delivery etc now That did get good actions done. Not certain of details since I was way younger then and did alot More harley riding and “Partying” and those yrs I sort of spent in a semi haze at times. Didn’t pay such close atten to issues back then.

            I do think thats when indep drivers got fuel surcharge paymnts, and a few other deamands were met.

            Bottom line then was after Two weeks, maybe even longer(?) All them unions and polititions listened better to trucker demands!..This weekend ordeal will be forgoten of in two weeks afterwards.

            A Full nationwide 30 Day shutdown! Now yer talkin!

            Then if all americans refuse to go to work etc they All can join in a massive HUNT down of and RICO-Act Arrests of ALL the Major Culprits.

            Then as JQP always posts…”Nurenberg II” trials time!

            Punish the Guilty, leave the innocent alone.

        • I personally recommend rather than trying to get drivers to shut down for one day ( they have tried it many times and it never works ) that we try (think about it after you finish laughing ) NOT HAULING TOILET PAPER, TISSUE PAPER , DIAPERS, OR TAMPONS FOR ONE –TWO WEEKS. anyplace in the country.

          Sorry to burst your bubble folks but this “strike” ain’t gonna happen. It’s just that simple. Down vote me all you like it won’t change anything. I’ve been in the trucking business in one capacity or another since 1971 with the last two decades as an independent owner/operator (O/O) so I know a thing or two about trucking and truckers.

          For starters the vast majority of long haul truckers work for one of the larger trucking companies and they aren’t about to lose their jobs over this. They have mortgages to pay, families to provide for and can’t afford to put their jobs on the line. And they won’t. Just like you there at your computer terminal they won’t be going to DC or anywhere else to protest.

          Through the years I’ve seen literally hundreds of calls to strike and none of them pan out. (the exception being the 73 (I think it was 73) truck strike) Everyday I hear from people who think they know everything there is to know about truckers and trucking after watching Smoky and the Bandit over and over. Got news for you people… Smoky and the bandit is a movie. Trucking wasn’t the they portrayed in the 70′s and damn sure is way off now a days.

          I wish you could get a million truckers to jam the beltway. I wish we could get a million computer programmers or a million motel maids, or a million of any profession you care to mention to get up off their butts and protest the Progressive/Socialist/Democratic take over of our once great country but we the people are just too comfortable with our big screen TV’s, unlimited internet entertainment, junk food coming out our ears… on and on and on.

          I’ll be surprised if 100 people show up for this. Most likely the whole thing will just go away. I’ll gladly eat my words if this were to pan out but knowing trucking as I do I can 99.99% guarantee there will be no million trucker strike.

            As a retired truck driver; I agree with your comments RT.

            The vast majority of independent truckers have a right to be pissed off. Company drivers just get what they knew, or should have known, from the minute they signed on. When i started, in 1993 I was earning .28 cents per mile with benefits. In between then and my retirement I made as much as .42 cents per mile and while I worked as a teamster local, I made as much as $24.00 an hour. My last gig, I worked OTR for .27 cents per mile with “NO” benefits. Piss poor for a driver with about 2 million accident free miles, but I don’t blame the company because i had other choices; just not choices within my hometown.

            The system is still screwy and the independents put their profits into the fuel tanks.

            What few drivers do make a showing in DC, won’t make a difference. There are drivers waiting in line to haul the freight they don’t carry while being shut down. The system is set up now to deal with any strikes in trucking. There are thousands of non-english speaking drivers out there, ready to take the wheel. Are they qualified? Doubtful; but, the Trucking companies and financing companies of the older trucks don’t really give a shit. That is what insurance is for.

              Your right about the foreign drivers. At my last job for 5 years loading/unloading trucks, I came across many drivers. Noticed many foreign drivers with new trucks and many American owners with old trucks. The foreign drivers for the most part were especially rude, trashed restroom, truck lot and hated to wait. Always at the shipping office window raising their voices, most were Bosnian.
              I have also noticed that many of the truck accidents involve a foreign driver, just read about one who closed i-75 last week. I worry about sharing the road with them. Most can barely speak English, it well known many get others to take tests for them.
              Many American drivers complained to me about the foreign drivers working for less. Met a team from the middle east, had new truck, they cut a hole in the floor to use as a restroom , told me they didnt have to stop that way.
              I don’t think these foreign drivers would participate in any strike, just try to earn from it.
              We need less foreigners, America can’t provide jobs , health care, free business grants, etc. for everyone.
              Btw, did talk to a lot of Walmart drivers, said they were paid pretty good with new trucks, they would NEver strike either.

        Trucks are the backbone of the country, trains could not begin to make up the difference lost if trucks were “garaged” for any reason. During the shutdown of air traffic after 9/11, trucks hauled much and saved the country for that week. Few people realize what this country would be like if the trucks did not roll. California, WHEN the San Andreas breaks, will see just what a total nightmare it will be getting anything. I don’t even want to talk about the New Madrid fault going because of all the bridges that would be gone and NO truck could get more than a few miles in many directions. Now, to imagine the San Andreas and the New Madrid BOTH breaking like back in 1812.

        Okay, now imagine a panademic. Those trucks are travelling from point A to B to C…………to Z. A person very sick CANNOT drive a truck. It could be weeks or months before everyone is well enough to function. By then most of the country would have been pretty much lost. People just automatically assume the trucks will come in. Just look at Colorado, there will NOT be very many trucks coming to many locations there for months. Road repair will be delayed there when winter hits.

        Definitely an article that shows the frailness of yet another segment of the U.S. infrastructure that is so dependent on a consistant flow of a service no matter what.

            “When will man learn that he is not God?”

            It is the sad state of our country. This administration wants people to thank and praise THEM instead. The gov’t hands out free food, housing, medical care, Obama phone, etc. …

            Florida Official: “Abandon Jesus if You Want to Feed the Poor.”

            A Florida ministry that has been feeding the poor (for 31 years) said a state agriculture department official told them they would not be allowed to receive USDA food unless they removed portraits of Christ, the Ten Commandments, a banner that read “Jesus is Lord” and stopping giving Bibles to the needy.”

            The ministry would NOT compromise. It went out and found other sources of food to give away.

            The director of the Christian Service Center responded, “We are a Christian ministry. Our purpose is to help people in need and to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are going to pray with them. We are going to offer them a Bible. We are going to counsel them in Christian help. We are going to use our chapel.”

            Churches across Lake City have stepped up to the challenge.

These unelected agencies train local governments how to get grants which eventually equates to loss of private property and higher taxes but makes them part of the COG as part of a region by erasing county boundaries eliminating borders. According to Article 1 Section 10 of the Constitution these regional councils are unconstitutional.

              Who is running the state?

              Here are a few of the more well known NGO’s that are actually a shadow government. League of Mayors, Regional Councils, NACO, FAC, DEP, Water Management, Parks and Recreation, FL Fish and Wild Life, Nature Conservancy, 1000 Friends, Sierra, Audubon, Enterprise Fl, World Heritage, etc. all get funded by taxpayers and then become part of the COG in order to get additional funding of any kind.

              If Governor Scott is on record as against UN Agenda 21, then why is he funding their projects?

              Restore Act is the perfect example of how these land grabs work. The money from the BP Restore Act is being used for land grabs, not economic development.

              Example: Washington Co, FL is broke. Economic damage due to a variety of reasons with future business put on hold, suffering as a result of the BP spill.

              Commissioners are scratching to find $100,000 to close the budget without raising taxes or firing people.

              Instead of using Restore Act money to improve business, industry and farming over $5million will be used to purchase private property at an inflated price and manage same. The property will be now owned by Water Management paying little or no taxes. Washington County will lose approximately $10,000 per year in lost tax revenue. Does that make any sense?

              ATTEN!! FLORIDA!!

              Listen to one of the planners describe the Seven/50 regional plan for SE Florida – same plan different name.

              Planner Andres’ high points are:

              • “Only Mega-Regions are important.”
              • “We need to transcend local control.”
              • “We need to stop having public meetings. Just get on with the plan.”
              • “We only need 4 people to make the decisions.”
              • “Top-down Federal government is best. Bottom up: local officials?everybody talks about nothing forever. We (Seven 50), decides who makes what decision and when, and then download to others later.”
              • “Those who seceded from us the EPA, HUD, DOT -we will crush you.”

              • “Miami and Cuba should become a sister-state.”

              • “We are passing Code Pink. It allows people to act, to reduce red tape. To be in a “free zone.”

              • “Miami needs to become South America. This is the one area where we will dominate. We could throw an election.”

              • “Everything must be planned, NOT TO THE CONVENIENCE OF LAND OWNERSHIP.”
              • “Say what you will about Fascism.. .it is efficient.”

              Seven/50 is on the march with many Regional meetings planned. If you do not understand the danger of regionalism…

              “Regional government is promulgated through Councils of Governments (COGs) and serves to neuter local government through a federalized system of carrots and sticks. COGs are designed to be the primary engine in the United States to advance Agenda 21 at the local level. Example: The Plan for the SF Bay Area is the prototype of what COGs throughout the country will commit to if the Plan is implemented in the SFBay Area. Although residents of the SF Bay area went to meeting after meeting, commissioners trained by COGs refused to listen and this $250 Billion plan to turn the SF Bay area into Hong Kong is underway. Over time the Plan abolishes private property as a system of public private partnerships assume control of our economic future. Knowing CA is broke, who is paying for this plan? Who benefits? Follow the money.” —Michael Shaw

              “Regionalism must precede globalism. We foresee a seamless system of governance from local communities, individual states, regional unions and up through to the United Nations itself.” – UN Commission on Global Governance

And to whom, when G-d was correcting him before his “Intellectual” peers (his self-righteous, accusatory friends – Eliphaz, Bildad and Zophar) – G-d said “Brace yourself like a MAN” (Job 38:3 AND AGAIN in 40:7)???
                  Do they truly believe that they (as meer sinful, unworthy heaps of clay) could ever ascend to even the greatness of the likes of Moses or Isaiah or Jeremiah or Ezekiel or Daniel (Whom an Angel of G-d called “Highly Esteemed” [Dan 10:11], and again “a MAN highly esteemed” [Dan 10:19]). And yet even these Great Mortals (MEN of G-d) were but meer MEN – being called “Great” and “Highly Esteemed” only because of their Faith and true Obedience to the G-d of the Universe!!!

                  god, in the presence of THOSE WHO KILL YOU? YOU WILL BE BUT A MAN, NOT A gOD, in the HANDS of those WHO SLAY YOU.” (Ez 28:9)

                  Isaiah 14:13-14
                  “I will ascend to the heavens;
                  I will raise my throne
                      above the stars of God;
                  I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly,

                  14 I will ascend above the tops of the clouds;
                      I will make myself like the Most High.”

                  G-d says concerning this:
                  1. But you are brought down to the realm of the dead,
                      to the depths of the pit. (Is 14:15)

                They’re going to “jack up the prices” anyway, and already have, so that might be an excuse but we all know better. At least we can make a statement by not shopping and giving our support publicly to the truckers. All the government understands, on federal, state and local levels, is money, so that’s where we hit them. Empty store shelves aren’t going to affect us since we’ve prepared for that and I assume that you have, as well. A New Madrid earthquake is to be feared, and a trucker’s strike would be minor compared to that. What will make the strike successful is our vocal support and writing to our congressmen, pointing out how fed-up we are with them and with the administration.

              For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.

        Truck drivers are the life blood of the country, most people don’t recognize it. I think most of the participants will be the independent, owner operators. Drivers that work for a company will fear for they’re jobs. I can easily stop shopping for a few days (or weeks) and help them out. OK here’s your prep tip for today… For an expedient underground shelter bury an empty septic tank with a riser from one of the manholes for an entrance. Airshafts (one on each end) can be made with 4 inch pvc drainpipe. Use a computer cooling fan (12volt) to force ventilation. Pack some charcoal impregnated material (air filter pre filter material) behind the fan inside the intake pipe. Run the vent pipes to an out of the way location then 90 degree them to the surface and cover them with screen and camoflauge them (rocks, bushes, etc.) Get some 5 gallon buckets for use as toilets so you can close off and seal them also some porta potty chems. Use a small solar panel on the surface in an inconspicuos place and run the wire underground to the tank. Use a small 12 volt sealed battery to store power for the fan and led light, radio, etc. Also you can mount a small spy camera outside in a hidden place and have a 12 volt small monitor in the tank (available cheap on ebay). Disguise the entry with a plastic birdbath or anything that blends in. Stock it with food and water and you have your own DIY bunker. This would be good for those that choose to hunker down in place or for a nuke incident, tornado, etc. One reason I like this is there is no concrete work, it’s waterproof, sealed, fast, and looks like your just installing a new septic tank. Just make sure your not too claustrophobic LOL.

          A good idea for stocking food is the mainstay 3600 calorie emergency packs. A 30 day supply fits in a shoebox and has a 5 year shelf life. Also only costs about 2 fed notes a day! They are great to have in your BOB, and vehicles as they can withstand high temps. Compact and cheap and non thirst provoking they are a great choice!

            I can’t say I agree with the use of these food bars for anything more than the really short term stuff.

            Don’t get me wrong, my BOB, my get-home bag and a small “life-bag” for every member of my family contains a 3-day supply of these emergency rations. However, these little tasteless bars hardly make for satisfying eating. They are little more than fuel for the furnace. That’s why they are supplemented with energy-efficient and tastier things if only to help with morale and make feeding ourselves less of a chore.

              PEMMICAN!

              Not sure if you guys have even heard of it, but I love it. I do about 40% jerky, 40% suet, 12% honey, and 8% powdered blueberries (which I dry and then “pulverize” in my ninja blender). Many different ways to make it, that’s just what I have found I like so far. In 1lb of it, it packs approx 3,100 calories. I vaccum seal the package and it will last 10years or more without refrigeration. It’s a “complete” food if you use grass fed meat and grass fed suet (US wellness meats sells 36lb tub for $110 delivered). People have literally eat this stuff for over a year and been perfectly healthy. Not recommending that, just saying it’s good healthy stuff. The grass fed suet has same omega 3:6 ratio as salmon…

                Thing is eating the same stuff over and over again will eventually wear down on you and destroy your morale, make eating a necessar chore instead of taking this chance for a small celebration that can improve your morale. Hell, I should know. I had a detachment commander who insisted all the good rations were his and his buddies and I was stuck eating the same 2 or 3 shit ones at every damned meal for 6 weeks. And that wasn’t in training, it was in Afghanistan of all places. He even tried to bring me up on insubordination when I told him where to go and how to get there when I just had enough and grabbed something I actually wanted to eat instead of what I’d be otherwise reduced to eating.

                No wonder he got demoted not long after we got home.

NO bill protecting our health, and the president and rich people can eat all organic– just a bill protecting Monsanto.

          In responds to Chip. My husband is an owner/operator, he pretty much just drives the west coast area. A week to 10 days for theses drivers is pretty long and if they don’t run they don’t make any money and they do, believe it or not, have families to help take care of. When it cost $500.00 to fill his tank to drive from Las Vegas to San Francisco, you Chip are asking way to much. Some of the drivers will not run that week-end, their plan is to pull off the road into truck stops and rest areas for those 3 days. Please don’t expect more than they can give. My question to you is this, what are you going to be doing while this is going on ? Are you one of those people who sits around telling others how to do things while you do nothing ?

          Yep, even if the truckers did cause a huge uproar they lack focus. What specifically do they want to happen? Do they want some law enacted? do they want some law repealed? Focus on one or two things or you have no focus, no real voice. Like occupy wall street, they wanted change, reform of wall street. Something I think most of us would actually agree with. But they could not state or agree on what specifically their demands were, so they just dissipated into nothing.

          Many of us don’t like the direction we are headed, but we can’t agree on which way to steer away, so there is no voice to be heard.

          If this happens I will not be cheering them on, I will see them as the sort of rabble you hear about in France orchestrating a general strike to protest having to work past 60. A child’s tantrum.

        Prepared Pastor: Only problem with your assessment is that ATCs were all federal employees working for the FAA which is part of the Dept. Of Transportation and it’s illegal for federal workers to go on strike, punishable by immediate dismissal (firing). Almost all truckers work for private firms or are independents (self-employed). The president could invoke EO 10999 and technically seize all transportation, but then what? There are millions of trucks and truck drivers, over 2 million are the big-rigs (tractor-trailer). If even 10% go on strike as anticipated, that’s 200,000 trucks and drivers idol for three days. The ripple effect of such a number would be felt for months in the form of all kinds of shortages and higher prices. Not a pleasant prospect. Time to stock up on other short term/everyday items. Johnny Carson made a joke about a toilet paper shortage on the Tonight Show in Dec. 1973. This caused a run on TP that created a shortage/backlog for one month, and it was all a joke.

            Salad loads are temp and time sensitive. All produce is. Once you slam the back doors and set the refer on constant 38 degrees, you had better get your ass rocking. Most school trained truck drivers that drive RED freightliners can’t do it. Everybody thinks truck driving is like a paid vacation and just lolly gagging across town. There is a stat that you get only 3drivers that last a year or better out of the hundred you train. Hmm kinda makes you wonder why. I could write a book on this shit! I haven’t got a thing against soldiers but to sit there and say they could just hop in and go over the road is highly uninformed on your part. Long range over the road driving is a whole different caliber of driving. Back when I was driving, I drove a set of 70s. That’s seventy hours of driving a week. Isn’t that 30 hours overtime? Normally. But not in a truck. There is no such thing as overtime in a truck, that’s a fact.
            Obama signed that bill, so fucking what. Obamas and those around him are a bunch of fucking educated idiots. Give them a Peterbilt and they would be lucky to get in the door let alone drive it. I would love to see one of them back a 102 trailer on a 96 dock without without scraping the sides off. Here’s a better one. Try making a right hand turn with a pole on the corner in New York City.
            Pure entertainment!
            There is so many Pitt falls to truck driving you have to wonder how they get people to do it. Let alone maintaining a career in it. That might be why every time you pick up a news paper, in the classifieds anywhere in the country there’s always jobs for truck drivers. If you can call them jobs.

Reckon that’s an object lesson for the types who think the Army could step in and drive OTR trucks on the Hunt’s Point Express line.

              BTW the reason FDR fired the civilian airmail contractors was the his son wanted to get the all contracts for himself. Sound familiar?

              Don’t know about the US military but the Canadian Forces have a trade called Mobile Support Equipment Operator. In English, they are truck and heavy equipment drivers and they run everything from staff cars to up-armoured bulldozers and everything in between including big rigs.

              The only limits are the vehicles each soldier is trained and uplifted on at the unit.

              Now, I’m not saying they would be able to replace every trucker by your equivalent National Guard (or God forbids actual “federal” military) overnight but probably enough, likely in 2 man crews, so the elites don’t have to feel the crunch, unlike the little people.

            Prepared Pastor: There are over 2 million tractor trailers in this country, not to mention all the millions of other cargo hauling trucks, and if just 10% strike, does the military have more than 200,000+ folks who can drive these rigs? I seriously doubt they could even scratch the surface. Besides, the strike would be over in 3 days (Oct. 11-13), long before the military could even begin to mobilize and get personnel where they needed to be, figure out what goes where and who’s doing it. Besides, as I said before, the backlog/ripple effect would cause massive shortages and serious price hikes.

      Great idea but goods will still flow. That’s the paradox of this move; if you don’t show up to work for two days you could very well lose your job and in this economy where are you going to get another one?

      Also, many goods, i.e. Wal-Mart, are moved via company owned trucks and drivers. HIGHLY, HIGHLY doubtful all those boys are going to step down from the cab for two days, nor will the UPS or FEDEX guys (if they left that WOULD hurt).

        Six months might be stretching it. The UN Small Arms Treaty was defeated. Our far left Lib senator voted for it, but the RINO didn’t. I wrote to Mr. Lib and told him not to plan on becoming a career politician. One of his more illiterate aides wrote back and told me that he was as concerned about gun violence as I was (WTH! I’m concerned about him, not firearms.) and that he would continue to work to serve our interests. He also asked for money. When they’re that damn clueless, you don’t really know what to do about them.

        @ Rich99, First, we don’t have six months, I wish we did. Only a week or two ago, you were here to “gloat” about a very temporary and subjective “victory”. Additionally, you made a “promise” to never return or even read this site again.

        Second, a leopard can’t change it’s spots overnight nor a zebra it’s stripes. You have either had an epiphany, or you are baiting a trap. I hope for the first…but know the latter scenario would be “more historically” possible/probable.

        You say: “Within six months it will be too late.” You are projecting the “doomer’s profile” you have consistently berated.

        Care to explain your apparent “change of heart”? I welcome all “awakenings”, but deal primarily in trends, facts, and historical activity/commentary.

        MUCH doesn’t fit your historical profile. “The dollar and dollar based economy will live another 5-10+ years. No war in the Middle East (Syria/Iran) because of the Russia/China factor.” Whats-up-doc?

        I would like to be wrong, but I believe you are about to drop a “hammer” on the “want to believe grazers” here. “Epiphany and/or Awakening” are the two possible “OUTS” provided.

        I am not at all interested in where the “thumbs” fall on this. I am however interested in your explanation.

So, if I am only 3 hours away and have no idea it is occurring do you really think a trucker from 5,8,12 hours away is going to drive to DC and waste 3 days pay for a protest that the criminals in DC are laughing at you for. If this is the best we have then it is time to pack it in !!

      I was watching a video about the shear force of nature with the tsunami in Japan. This video is of ONLY a 25-30 foot tsunami. This could be double or triple the size along the Cascadia fault zone in the Pacific Northwest, OR along the Atlantic seaboard and Gulf regions that have very shallow waters that tend to build up the size of tsunamis from the Caribbean plate breaking. The last time this broke was about 600 years ago, it is overdue. Water will destroy roads quicker than anything you can imagine and inhibit any truck traffic like in Colorado. This can also occur to almost ANY area in this country from excessive rainfall that will cut off any area from the outside world. Yes, my hometown can be an island, or underwater.

      This is a good video, only 7 and 1/2 minutes long, that shows what water can do in a few minutes to an area fully functioning. Just look at how almost everything, even well anchored structures are pushed away. This is kind of freaky to watch as Mother Nature is so much more powerful than most realize.

        We spend a lot of time in Vermont, and there were a lot of roads, bridges, etc. washed away about four or five years ago. A tropical storm stalled over the state and it just rained buckets for about a week. We drove around when we went up there in the fall of that year, and were shocked at the damage. There are still places that haven’t been rebuilt to this day. My heart broke for those people.

        Be informed, I have had a strong feeling for some time that a tsunami would occur along the eastern coast of America but nothng to back up my feeling. Then I read about Antarctica. If (when)it breaks up (or partly breaks up), it could very well create a tsunami that effects the east coast. Antarctica is ice that is miles thick. According to experts, it could create a tsunami that would cause devastation along the east coast of US.

          Actually, it’s not Antarctica that should worry the east coast in regards to Tsunamis, it is the Canary Islands off the coast of Africa. They’ve already started to wedge off…if they go, there will be a MEGA-Tsunami hitting the entire east coast (and other parts of the world along the Atlantic.) History Channel has a nice demonstration of it…probably on YouTube.com.

      “40 hour week for a living, just to bring it on down the line”… pretty sure every trucker will tell you working for a living ain’t no way to make a living. It’ll be mighty ironic for Americans who make $55K/year to try to influence the lilly butts in Washington who make “average American” $250k PLUS get retirement. In case they – and you – haven’t figured it out, they’ve been O-W-N-E-D by the politico class and are servants. “Do your job and shut up!”

      If you go to Karl Denninger’s Market Ticker site, he describes more that will be going on with this. It doesn’t just involve truckers.

      He recently asked his subscribers and anyone that reads his site to shut down everything on 9/11, make no purchases, pay no bills. In other words, for producers to do nothing to feed the machine.

      If the truckers do their strike on those days, and we have no one purchasing on those days, the thought is that it would make an impression on TPTB, that we are tired of being trod on, spied on, and having our money used to further erode our way of life and our liberties.

      They are also planning another similar action on Black Friday weekend.

      I know…not everyone will participate. I plan on doing so for the reason that we are running out of viable options to speak for us that do not involve violence. If we can make a difference or show displeasure simply by not buying stuff on certain dates, to me, that is much better than the alternative.

      I am going to provide links to Karl Denninger’s page, plus the facebook page for the truckers in the link below this post for anyone needing more information.

          I don’t think that the truckers who are participating are even asking for that Granny.

          All they are asking us to do is show support by not buying anything for three days.

          In other posts, I have seen people ask if this is sanctioned by the teamsters. From what I have read, it is going to be a group of truckers doing this on a volunteer basis. There have never been any numbers saying that “we have this many truckers definitely committed to doing this”.

          But it IS SOMETHING. A FEW truckers…a FEW of us supporting them by not making purchases. What you have there is a start. Some people are starting to stand up and DO something. It’s a beautiful thing to see, and it gives me a little hope that we are more than just a dead nation walking.

          There are people saying that it won’t work. Well, in the beginning, it might not…but all it takes is someone else with another idea…then another…

          I don’t honestly expect this to be some enormous huge thing. Barn Cat (from an above post) won’t have to worry that he won’t receive that new gasoline tank for his 1974 Pinto that he bought on e-bay. But it’s a start, and thats what excites me.

    31. I am in favor of taking our country back using any form of peaceful protest available.

      The reason so many Jewish prisoners were taken in WWII was because they didn’t believe that they would be taken prisoner until it happened. Then most of them did nothing to escape their predicament. They felt they were powerless.

      Now, if you want a change to take place in American Politics, we have to take charge of our countrys’ direction. We have to show our elected officials that we are their bosses.

      This strike will make our grievences known in a peaceful way while allowing the government the opportunity to respond.

      If the Congress can shut down the Government over the budget, we can shut down the Country for FREEDOM.

      I will be looking futher into this protest.

      This may be more effective if there were simultaneous protests on both the left and right coasts. Maybe one in Chicago too. People have to drive a long expensive way to get to this as planned. Fuel for a truck is not like fuel for a bike. Trucks have fewer options logistically than a bike for nearly everything, hotels, where to eat, sleep, etc. Make this happen in a number of spots across the country, and there will likely be more trucks participating, and more coverage, or at least a good argument for coverage.

        A widespread strike would most likely also alienate the grassroots that are just as pissed at the corrupt government as the truckers. If anything, perhaps more targeted work stoppages would be more effective.

        Say, stopping deliveries to D.C., New York, L.A., Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal and other centres of government corruption while leaving the more right-wing minded types alone?

    37. The whole system will eventually revert back to it’s natural state. That being where those that produce tangible goods and services needed for survival will be the only ones left.

      No more actors, pundits, FIRE agents or politicians. They produce no value and are parasites on those who do. Self employed “professionals”, “talented MBAs”, and “successful bankers” produce NOTHING but paper and extract rentier income from the rest.

      The whole system is a scam that is enabled by cheap fossil fuels.

      Better learn to be a producer of actual things needed to survive. The rest of the non-producers are going to be fucked in the near future.

      Sustainable food, water and shelter will be the new values of life…not gold or FRNs or even fancy weapons. Sure, they’ll be good for hunting or self defense for a time, but eventually they will become fancy clubs.

      Small local groups of 3 to 5…”card game” get togethers, and OPSEC as far as electronic media is essential. DO NOT broadcast your weapons or intentions on electronic media. You are putting a target on your back.

        JRS,

        A self-employed physician, occupational or physical therapist is a parasite and produces nothing? You are full of shit too. Self-employed professionals are the antithesis of the wage slave and debt serfs upon whom the entire corporate fascist edifice rests.

        Twenty million people at all levels of government can’t afford to give economic and political liberty an honest hearing because they are bought and paid for. They are tax fed parasites working for government. Does that include .mil and .LE?

        Yes, it does. if I don’t have the right to knock someone to the ground and steal his wallet i don’t acquire that right from ten thousand people saying “Oh yes, please, do it for us.”

        You can’t delegate rights you don’t have no matter how many people are in on the illegitimate use of force.

        Government exists from coercion, theft and murder. If you want to describe people as parasites take an honest look at government.

          Exactly. If whatever you do does not use the planets natural resources to make build or grow something that adds to the GNP. You are a parasite. You may believe your job is necessary but your a taking parasite just the same. If all the health care professionals and facilities disappeared overnite life would still continue. Granted many sickly non producing parasite takers would expire. However if all the makers growers & producer,s & facilities disappeared everyone would soon expire. The farms can survive without the city,s & town.s But the citys & towns cant survive without the citys! ep If your money comes from a government check your indeed a parasite. In order for your parasite taking check to be paid some producing maker must be robbed (taxed) on in the case of the borrowed money some future producer is robbed. We have far too many relatively high paid & benifited parasite takers and way too few relatively low paid & benifited producers. many folks thin they don’t have to produce they think someone else will produce for them. Now the producers are asking themselves why? Why produce when The fruits of my production are robbed (taxed) excessively and what im allowed to keep has to compete against the same money that was robbed from me and redistributed? I resent the fact that my hard earned cash has to compete against food stamps at the grocery store. I resent the fact that my hard earned cash has to compete with the so called free government subsided health care at the doctors & dentist ect. Too many takers and too few makers is not sustainable.

      Russia Puts Some 20,000 Internal Troops on Training Alert

      MOSCOW REGION, September 17 (RIA Novosti) – More than 20,000 of the Russian Interior Ministry’s internal troops have been put on alert in preparation for upcoming Russian-Belarusian drills, a senior ministry official said Tuesday.
      The troops will conduct a series of territorial defense exercises in several Russian regions in preparation for the Zapad-2013 (West-2013) drills, said Deputy Interior Minister Nikolai Rogozhkin, who is also chief of the internal troops.
      The missions will include counterterrorism and counterinsurgency operations as well as the reinforcement of sensitive installations in emergency situations, the official added.
      On Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin, supreme commander-in-chief of the nation’s armed forces, ordered a new series of snap checks of the military as well as civil services, to be conducted at the Interior Ministry’s internal troops, as well as in a number of civilian structures: the Transportation Ministry, the Energy Ministry and the Novgorod Region administration.
      The Zapad-2013 two-stage strategic military drills, involving rapid-reaction units from the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), will take place in Belarus and Russia from Friday to September 26.
      Vyacheslav Usik, a spokesman for the Russian General Staff, said earlier that Belarus would send 10,400 servicemen to the drills, which will also involve some 60 aircraft and helicopters and up to 250 combat vehicles. Moscow and Minsk held similar large-scale military exercises in September 2009.
      July this year saw unprecedented drills in the Russian Far East testing the Far East and Central Military Districts’ combat readiness. The drills involved more than 160,000 servicemen, 130 aircraft, 5,000 tanks and armored vehicles, 70 Pacific Fleet warships, five Russian armies, the Third Air Force, Air Defense Command and strategic aviation. The Defense Ministry has said that such snap inspections will be conducted regularly.

      Netanyahu’s new red lines for Iran

      DEBKAfile September 17, 2013, 6:15 PM (GMT+02:00)
      Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told the weekly cabinet session Tuesday that he would meet President Barack Obama in Washington at the end of September to discuss means of stopping a nuclear Iran. His new red lines for Iran were: 1) Complete halt of uranium enrichment; 2) Removal of enriched fissile materials from Iran; 3) Closure of the Fordo enrichment plant; 4) Termination of plutonium production at Arak.
      It is now proved, said Netanyahu, that a rogue state developing or acquiring unconventional weapons will eventually use them, in the absence of diplomacy backed by a credible military threat.

      Irag went off the dollar for oil in 2000 and we went after them. Iran is doing it and we’re inching towards them with Syria. All of those dollars not being used in oil will fly back to the U.S. in the form of inflation.

      A very small portion of our society wants to make changes to our society as a whole because they do not like the way things have become. They complain and bitch and say we all need to do something. EX: A general strike, a protest, a rally, a petition and so on. The truth is that no one is going to do anything about anything. People have to be MAD and I mean really MAD before they will set out to create change. And people in this country just aren’t there. Higher gas and food prices, lack of a good job, people becoming homeless, loss of liberties and freedoms and the lack of morals and personal responsibility etc… Just isn’t enough to make people MAD or motivate them to get off their asses from watching the newest tv reality show. People won’t be MAD until the food stamp cards quit working and the Obama phones quit dialing out and the SSI and SS checks quit coming and MEDICAID-MEDICARE-SECTION 8 and every other government entitlement ceases to exist. Then and only then will people be MAD enough to take it to the streets and demand change. Unfortunately the change they will be demanding is for it to go back to the way it was, being taken care of by the government and the rest of us paying the bill. So if changes ever come by way of civil unrest, mass rioting in the streets etc… the people participating in this will feel no remorse in taking everything you have to extend their existence on this planet. After all they’ve been taking it from you for years in the taxes you paid. So there you have it, the spark, the one little incident the one person that will stand up and shout and the world hears and responds to and that we have all been waiting for that will set in motion a chain of events that will motivate people in this country to say enough is enough and were taking back our country will not come from the people who place God and Country above ones own personal interests, it will come from the those that believe the world has an obligation to take care of them even if it is at the expense of another and they want it to continue.

      “This is a battle, not the entire war. I do not go into battle expecting any particular outcome. I am prepared to win. I am prepared in the event of a loss. I go into battle, expecting only to FIGHT. What I EXPECT is to eventually win this war.”

      I’m in. All in. Mrs okie is on board as well. No purchases. No bill paying. NO business conducted from Oct 11 to 13th. And my truck will NOT roll on those days. Wherever I’m at on those days, home or DC or in between, it will STOP. If it has a new driver come Oct 14th…. so be it.
      And, I’ve been on the phone for 2 hours to more than a dozen friends and associates in the industry. That’s why I cultivate and maintain as many good relationships as possible. Some are in. Some aren’t. A couple are still on the fence…

      Now, a little perspective on this whole matter-
      This strike, successful or not, will NOT bring immediate change. Truckers, even though we transport a big percentage of all the goods, are still just a small part of the overall picture. We need cops, teachers, office workers, vets, farmers, you name it, to stand with us.
      And if we lose this battle, or gain nothing from it, we will fight again on another day. And again… and again…
      This is a war. If you haven’t yet understood that, please get it through your head. This is a war against our nation. Our economic system, our culture, our religious views and values. It’s a war against our very way of life. The only way we can win is to stand together and keep fighting.
      The only way we will lose is to not show up for the battles. Now, just one question- what are YOU planning on doing Oct 11th, 12th and 13th?

      Apart from the importance of the political planned protest raised by the Truckers, a more important issue will be raised, which is the weakness of the freight infrastructure and dependence on freight to bring in goods. Farmers Markets and local small growers/farmers (hopefully you still have this in USA) need to be supported. Buy only fresh produce that is in season, support your own farmers by only buying meat from USA. Reliance on imports, or even from other regions is not sustainable when the SHTF.
      Christchurch (New Zealand) earthquake 7.1, 4th Sept 2010, was my first experience of a damaging earthquake. What happened was that all rail was stopped, rail lines bent, tracks needed to be checked. Roads closed due to rockfalls, sinkholes, liquification, Airports closed – runways damaged, – city food manufacturing factories closed due to damage, on going significant tremors kept factories closed until they could be checked by structural engineers. Petrol rationed, and actually started to run out, no fuel tankers could get into the city. Me, my husband and two young children were prepared, except for beer, never thought I would need a good supply in a civil defence emergency. Local breweries damaged, with no stock able to be freighted in until rockfalls cleared etc. As soon as the SHTF people went to the supermarket and hoarded staple items (toilet paper, bottled water went first) including beer. No power, no flushing toilets, no communications – as the networks immediately overloaded. Emergency services overloaded so people had to fend for themselves.

      I live in a small university town – pop. 3500, 15km’s from ChCh pop. 350,000. As the tremors continued after the main quake, some significant, city malls closed, as did my local supermarket, garage and butcher – couldn’t open due to no power and the need for public buildings to be checked for structural damage. Local Farmers Markets still able to operate as they were outside venues. Once shops started to re-open I noticed that people did not like being inside public buildings, malls, picture theatres etc., and it was common for people to have panic attacks whilst shopping, a lot of people did not want to go out and get supplies until they really had to, due to the fear of being trapped inside a building, or that something would fall on them in the event of a tremor whilst out shopping. Some people even had a fear of driving, due to sinkholes, or having something fall on their car and crush them – fear, lack of sleep, constant unknowns – unbalanced people, any significant tremor will still send people to the supermarket, petrol stations, to hoard and stock up. Seemed to be a reflex action to try and buy up as much as you can and not worry about anyone else.

      Moving on, three years from the 7.1 quake, local small growers and boutique foodstuff suppliers, butchers etc., have came into their own, people now understand the need for alternatives to the major food supply chains. Local small business are doing well, Farmers Markets also very well supported. Community gardens have sprung up in the city – project is called ‘Greening the Rubble’.

      Things happened that I never thought would happen here – looting in the city, burglary of damaged homes. After the quake, people could not secure their homes as doors did not close properly, windows smashed in quake etc. Most frightening was the suburban night raids by scumbags sneaking into people’s houses whilst they were sleeping and stealing whatever they wanted, food, medicines, clothes … damaged doors could not be locked, people did not want to barricade themselves in their homes at night in case of a tremor, instead of staying inside, most people preferred to be outside whilst a tremor was in progress.

      So I hope the Truckers really cause havoc and interrupt peoples daily life. The inconvenience of not being able to purchase food/goods due to the Truckers planned protest could wake more people up to flaws in cities infrastructures.

      • Be informed says:

        @ Joyzy Girl. Everything you say is so true, as natural disasters can cut off everyone from the outside world. That 7.1 was actually small in comparison to what can and has hit the area before. One precursor fact that I have found is whenever the African plate gets active, look out Australian plate. North Island rides on the Australian plate, and most of South Island is on the Pacific plate. I don’t know if you are new to the site or not, but I have a means of forecasting earthquakes that has proven accurate about 90% of the time.

        I look for earthquakes along the plate boundaries, especially towards the Antarctica and Arctic regions. When these happen, you can go back and key in their latitudes and longitudes and see what major earthquakes followed years or decades before. For example, the recent 4.8 earthquake on the eastern African plate at the exact spot lead to major earthquakes within 15 days in Fiji, Aleutian Islands, Kuril Islands, Chile/Argentina, Venezeula, eastern Russia, New Guinea/Soloman Islands, northern California, and before the 7 pointer in Haiti that killed 300,000. When coupled with other precursor plate boundary earthquakes a pattern develops.

        Where a distant foreshock appears before, it is likely that the same place that caused this stress and strain is going to hit the same place(s) again with a major earthquake. Plates have moved very little in decades. For example, the earthquake in New Zealand a few weeks ago towards Wellington in the Cook Strait had a precursor earthquake at the SW Indian Ridge, the SAME area that was hit before the Christchurch earthquake back in 2010. YES, the same area. Watch for any earthquake at about 28.1 south by 62.9 east, this means New Zealand is in the target zone. Other areas included the Philippines, Pakistan, New Guinea, central California, Fiji, and Chile in the past.

        Yes earthquakes follow this type of pattern. Think about one weak spot in a highway that continues to crack in the same spot that leads to other fractures. Same principle, major earthquakes release their stress and strain AWAY from the main source of the break, because the area that is ready to break is too locked to usually have any large enough foreshocks. Just watch that area of the Indian Ridge that is east of Madagascar, when an earthquake of over 4.5 hits here, it means the Australian plate is ready to move, sometimes in New Zealand.

    62. Be informed says:

      @ Anonyomous above. There is a misconception about any type of avalanche driven tsunami from a massive ice dump or the Canary Islands collapsing. The Soviets toyed with the idea of setting off a glacial collapse of Antarctica ice back in the 1950′s, but it was determined that in open ocean that ANY wave from such a collapse rapidly loses energy. There is for one thing no speed behind something like this. Kinetic energy = 1/2(m)(velocity2). The myths about the Canary Island collapse is all over the scientific and other sites, and does not hold any truth about it.

      Much of the misinformation about this comes from what is called tidal bores, or from the nearly 2 thousand foot tsunami generated in a CLOSED bay in Alaska from an avalanche. The larger a body of water is, the more kinetic energy has to be generated to form these super tall mega waves. In a narrow channel this is possible, because the energy is not divereted away in open waves. Think of the way a canyon works to channel water or wind. The more open something is the less channelled something is and the more dispersed it becomes.

      JustOneGuy brought up what is called solitons in reference to an avalanche of the Canary Islands. Which is a concentration of waves energy, such a tidal bore, or out in space from energy plasma. The ocean though has mass and much friction and resistance that will pull energy away from the orginal source. The longer the distance the more this “drags” at the orginal energy. Rouge waves on a rare occasion can bypass this on a very limited scale, again on a very small isolated scale. A directed tsunami would have to be from something with huge mass or a lot of speed behind it.

      As calculated from those that do asteroid impacts and tsunami size at the University of Purdue, it would take basically something the size of the Canary Islands going at over 39000 miles per hour to impact the Atlantic Ocean to generate the mythical 160 foot monster tsunami that would hit the east coast 3500 miles away. For even a tsunami 50 foot to hit the east coast from the far and away Antarctica you would need a small moon to impact the ocean there at about 11 miles per second, something bigger than the dinosaur killer asteroid.

      What can cause an Atlantic tsunami is of course an asteroid, but a major plate uplifting suddenly like in Japan and Indonesia. That would be the north and eastern side of the Caribbean plate that is almost equal to the size of the Juan de Fuca plate, or Cascadia fault. This plate last went off over 600 years ago, and will go off again. Much the tsunami evidence along the fossils along the Atlantic seaboard from monster tsunamis are from the Caribbean plate going off, and from the massive comet or asteroid that has impact the ocean. NOT from the Canary Islands going into the ocean. Earthquake faults are hundreds of miles long and the upthrusts of these sudden slips are even faster than the common avalanche.

      The speed of these collapses are tiny. There are going just about as fast as how fast a baseball pitcher throws a slider, about 90mph. To put this into how speed influences an impact imagine a .22 caliber round being thrown at 90 mph at someone, a slight bruise. Then at 1200 ft per second, cause some real probelms to any internal organ. Jack that speed up to 3500 ft per second which is really what the common .223 or 5.56mm in the AR-15 goes and you start to see some real tissue destruction. Speed that up, assuming it doesn’t burn it, to 55000 ft per second and you will literally explode a body on impact. This is the differnce in speed between an avalanche and a meteorite impacting the ocean. There is just not any velocity with any avalanche.

      Don’t worry about ice causing any tsunami at any distance. It would take an ice shelf the size of Alaska to cause any sort of sizable tsunami. I would worry about the Caribbean plate because of the long duration at which it has taken from the last time it went off. There has been a lot of recent, past 2 years, earthquake activity on the western portion of it. Nearby avalanches can cause very LOCALIZED massive tsunamis as underwater mountain collases demostrate. In open water, this energy is rapidly depleted, the further the distance the more so.

      I have a link about the myths of the Canary Islands collaspe if you would like to read more about this.

      At one time it took a lot of skill to drive a truck. now with computerized auto transmissions and engine brakes and better roads almost anyone who is half bright can drive a freight truck. I remember when all we had where 220 cummins & 238 Detroit and ten speed roadranger trans. Going down a steep grade loaded to 80,000 GVW and not overheating the brakes took skill. Nowadays even Techatchapie(the Grapevine) is a breeze. It also took skill to juggle three log books! A truck strike Just like voting will accomplish nothing. Its broke beyond fixing. There are no viable solutions. Its as good as it ever will be. The decline will continue. For Many Its already SHTF eventually it will be SHTF for almost everyone.

      • If the A.T.A. really wanted to accomplish this goal, why did they disclose their intentions?

        Every alphabet federal and state law enforcement agency will be waiting for the truckers on every road, bridge, highway and interstate entering D.C., plus the jackboots will be armed to the teeth.

        Take into account that law enforcers around the country have devolved into nervous, trigger-happy killers just itching to shoot their weapons, and we might be looking at a potential national blood bath.

        Add to that, creating a ginormous traffic jam of major proportion, while people desperately wait for the products the trucks deliver.

        Finally, the faux President and his cabinet will be secretly tucked away in some underground base or bunker waiting out the fiasco.

        At the end of the day, what will be accomplished?

        I’m not saying don’t try to impliment change, just make sure that the enemy doesn’t see you coming.

      — Aldous Huxley, Brave New World

      Time for those of us who are fed up with this corrupt system to commit acts of civil disobedience. Our government has truly become an oligarchy. We are slaves, serfs, useless eaters, etc. That is how they see us! Why? Because we put up with it!

      Every day on alternative media sites we get articles about: the coming economic collapse, another government overreach, erosion of our rights, etc. etc. ad nauseum. We’re becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy! All these things are happening BECAUSE WE ALLOW IT!!! Don’t know about the rest of you but I’m sick & tired of being sick & tired.

      For a lot of you, preparing has always been a way of life – especially those who grew up in rural areas. But there are a lot, like me, who are late to the game. I’ve prepared as much as I can, but I feel that what’s to come for ALL of us if we don’t act, well, NO amount of physical preparation will be able to prevent. I read fantasies of movie-like shootouts with the feds, Mad Max-esque apocalypse scenarios & the like, but I really don’t think most have even the slightest idea what such events would do to your psyche.

      I love what this country represented at one time: ABSOLUTE FREEDOM!!! The founders gave humankind a way out of it’s own extinction: a government formed BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE. A constitutional republic. Short of anarchy, I feel it’s the best we got.

      NOW IS THE TIME. The internet has become a sort of mass consciousness. Posting, reading on forums is educational, sometimes therapeutic, but ACTIONWe must band together, overcome petty differences. FREEDOM, LOVE, UNITY. I feel revolution in the air. Not by violent means, but we must reserve the right to defend ourselves if need be. Will anyone else take this stand?

      The Repy left on My FB page by a 20 something -idiot- high school- drop -out -living -in -his -mother’s -basement after I posted a link referencing the truckers protest:”a trucking strike is an incredibly bad idea. first of all i dont see any defined goal, other than “stopping the tyranny”. which is an insult to anyone who has ever lived under an actual tyrant. second, the only things this will accomplish is putting small businesses out of business.(Walmart will be just fine[speaking of tryranny..]) and creating panic. yeah great idea. i’m getting really tired of these tea-party type people. more and more they show themselves to be deluded and childish. and i’m quite certain that 85% of all anti-Obama bullshit is just veiled racism. for the most part the tea-party is just a bunch of hicks getting whipped into a frenzy over nonsense and propaganda(Foxaganda), so that people like the Koch brothers and High-King Murdoch can squeeze more money from the U.S. and the rest of the planet via loopholes and schemes. back to my original point, BAD IDEA. who knows whats in those trucks? vital medication, perhaps? so some old lady might DIE because a bunch of nitwits don’t like the color of the president.”

      My reponse to said Idiot:”That’s the gist of free speech . You get to voice your opinion . Occupy Wall Street did it. E.l.f. Does it, so does: La Raza ,black panthers, the SP-USA and the list goes on and on . It seems to me the only time anyone has a problem with a protest is when it’s by ” racist ” white people . I actually wanted Herman Cain for prez. The point being: free speech is for everyone, not just who you approve of. As for people dying because there will be a 72 hour delay in deliveries : if you don’t have at least 72 hours worth of food water gas and essentials you better hope to god you never get caught in a tornado snow storm hurricane flood or break a leg .

      So you attempt to get the administration out, Then what? Anarchy in the streets, people getting killed like Egypt, Libya or worse like Syria. It may start with peaceful intentions, but without violence nothing happens. No clear direction will solve nothing. A better way is needed. Absolute balanced budget be the number one priority. There is a way to pay off the national debt, but it would take everyone’s participation, however the administration must be held accountable. Ross Parot had the right idea, run the country like a business. But the problem is far too much corruption even at low levels. Suppose a toll was enacted. Every vehicle entering onto the interstate system paid a lousy little quarter, every cent of which went to pay down the national debt. It wouldn’t hurt us as individuals. Likely we all keep a change jar, so we use that. The problem is how to collect it by honest people and get it to where it needs to go, 100% of it. Good luck with that. Being politically neutral, be it known that all governments are corrupt in one way or another and many people are as well. The one who is returned too much change at the grocery store. Does he point out the cashiers error and give it back, or does he pocket it for themselves. That one is corrupt on the lower level.
      It’s coming down to the wheat and the chaff. Look around you, its’ everywhere and it won’t be solved by man or their so called peaceful demonstrations that turn violent. Best of luck to all the honest ones. Good day

      Hey, Hear me out on this one….
      Why aren’t we, as the common sense preppers and Americans we are, taking a page from the playbook of the communist-fascists taking over our country? Here’s my idea to use their own plays against them–
      1. We (preppers, patriots, libertarians, constitutionalists, oath-keepers, all like mindeds are invited) Pick two or three good states from our standpoint.
      2. relocate as many of us to those states as are willing and capable of moving.
      3. infiltrate local, county and state governments in those states and put in place laws to protect and follow our constitution.
      4. Infiltrate the schools with OUR teachers, principals, superintendants and school books which reflect our freedom loving constitutional values.
      5. show stories form OUR viewpoints on the local news channels.ETC,ETC,ETC…..
      6. Shape public perception in OUR favor just as they are shaping it in “their” favor.
      Follow me so far. I mean it seems to me that we are all running around trying to stop “them” (fascist governement and NWO hacks) instead of using the methods that seem to have worked for them. Let’s organize and get this done!!!
      I nominate the states of Utah, Idaho and Montana as the states we start in for reasons that will be obvious to all full or part time preppers.
      Thoughts, comments or expressions of optimism???
      Sorry that it is off topic for the article, It just seems that all this protesting leaves us on the DEFENSIVE when we should be on the OFFENSE rooting these people out, firing or arresting them and protecting OUR values.…

      This is probably one of the dumbest strike ideas in recent history! Who strikes on the weekend? No congress in session no senate nobody will be their to hear you! No real Agenda! Stick to the real issues! Lower fuel prices better freight rates retirement benefits Mandatory detention for drivers At the shippermore than 2 hours! Stop restricting the drivers with so many frivolous log book changes! Stay on topic and be sane! Your logical agenda won’t get it done! If you generate enough people to be heard do it during the week when the city is busiest!

      If you want to make people take notice you should have a day where all semi drivers drive at the speed limit. Nothing is more infuriating than a semi passing you while you are doing 65 in a 55. Do any of you guys care about safety. Also, good luck with road rage on Oct 11th. Better keep your doors locked.

      I am glad to see the people of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA come and pull together. Its hard for some citizens to make it from payday to payday, and then with gas prices being so high.I feel that alot of our people government that was elected to represent us needs to be made to leave office and that the so called president needs to be impeached. I wish all the truckers good luck on this strike…..
