SUPPORT, A CALL TO ACTION
Truckers aim for ‘arrests’ in Congress,
Bikers came to Washington, D.C., by the thousands only a few weeks ago to express their patriotism for their country and their frustration at those running it, and only days later truckers in a loosely defined group holding a conversation on Facebook said they would do something similar.
The details now are becoming clear, and one component of the trucking fraternity has announced plans for arrests.
Of members of Congress.
With or without help from police.
According to a new report Monday in US News, a coordinator for the “Truckers Ride for the Constitution” rally said truckers not only will clog highways in Washington, express their frustrations and their opposition to political agendas, they will do so emphatically.
“We are not going to ask for impeachment,” Earl Conlon told US News. “We are coming whether they like it or not. We’re not asking for impeachment, we’re asking for the arrest of everyone in government who has violated their oath of office.” [That is about everyone of them!]
The report said Conlon had cited a citizens’ grand jury as the means for indictments. That movement already has “indicted” Obama and other federal officials, but as they are jurors convening without a court sponsorship, their charges largely have not gone far.
Conlon told US News this might be different.
