Via AAN:

The Biden Administration’s Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has now approved the use of hundreds of members of the national guard against a potential protest by truckers in Washington, D.C.

As The Daily Wire reports:

President Biden’s Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has reportedly approved requests for 700 National Guard members to deal with at least three trucker convoys headed for the nation’s capital.

 

According to the National Guard Bureau, Austin approved requests for roughly 400 members of the D.C. National Guard and 300 members from outside of the District of Columbia; the Bureau said none of their members will carry firearms “or take part in law enforcement or domestic-surveillance activities,” ABC News reported, adding, “Officers from Washington’s Metropolitan Police Department will increase patrols on Feb. 22 through March 5, shortly after the State of the Union, according to an internal MPD message obtained by ABC News. The department will also have two rapid response teams ready.”

President Biden is scheduled to deliver his State of the Union address on March 1.

Three convoys have already announced their intentions to travel to the Washington D.C. area: Bob Bolus Towers & Truckers for America, The People’s Convoy, and The American Truckers Freedom Convoy.  The Bolus group was planning on leaving from Scranton, Pennsylvania on Wednesday.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau recently declared the equivalent of marshal law to crush a similar demonstration in the Canadian capitol, in the process arresting protestors at gun point and unilaterally freezing their bank accounts.

It appears that the Marxists control the existing administration and are going to act like their allies in the communist controlled countries around the World. Despots ruling like tyrants.

Canadian truckers found they coold push out of the way any blokages by using “Surplus Heavy Tank Haulers” They will need them as the National Gard intends to block routes with parked military vehicles.

Any Semi can push any tank out of their way, all you have to do is use the power divider which turns the rear wheels into basically all wheel drive instead of all of the power going to only 1 axle!!!! Sincerely retired Semi Driver for many decades!

The problem with using Tanks as a blocade device is that they are on steel tracks steel has no traction on asphalt if they used rubber it would help with traction on asphalt but the Semi would still have enough power to make the tanks slip the tracks off of the machine! Ex truck driver and ex Special Forces! If the drivers saw that the tanks were unoccupied if they really wanted to mess with them throw some Tijuana Cocktails inside of them and burn the wiring up then they cannot be driven until completely rewired!

No violence. Too bad the Dems won’t use the National guard to protect citizens from BLM and Antifa , or when trump called for the guard before January 6.

This out to be entertaining, u will need many more than 700 guardsman, who will side with the Truckers, this authoritarian,woke government has gone way overboard. It’s time to come back to reality, before this civil war gets out of hand. We don’t need a slaughter on the streets, because of a bunch of woke, white rage, incompetent, politicians/generals pretending to know how America works, by stripping our freedoms away,be very careful with your reaction, to freedom.

I think I’ll invest in popcorn futures. It should be entertaining watching the liberal elite’s heads explode. Maybe that incompetent nincompoop in the White House will finally see how detested he is. His handlers have been hiding the truth from him, and keep him in a delusional bubble.

Idi Amin’s big job is to purge the military of conservative voters.

The only people left will be those who are there for a job not to do a job.

His big dream is to be the leader of a military dictatorship in the U.S.A.
