Zero edge is reporting a possible truck convoy to D.C

Not sure of all their complaints but it seems the rank and file citizens are tired of gov't pandemic over reach and want all mandates to stop

There is some organizing necessary with a GOFUNDME acct for fuel, and lodging

Work is proceeding on a route from CA to DC

As a former trucker fuel and food is the most required

You carry your house with you and some today have a cool box which can hold a week or more of food

Smaller trucks not equiped with a bunk will find lodging most appreciated

A local truck repair truck went along with the Canadian convoy to fix flat tires and other break downs. Great way to advertize as the main route through Ontario runs a mere 5 miles from his home He gets regular calls and the business is growing Another great opportunity would be for a fast food truck to supply coffee and burger, fries etc

Thanks Wayne!

Is this the article that you were intending to refer us to from Zero Hedge in your title?

Seems reasonable to me.

Here's Why US Truckers Staging Convoy To DC Will Face Soaring Diesel Prices

U.S. truckers celebrate the recent Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) canceled vaccine mandate and their Candian counterparts who have rolled into Canada's capital, Ottawa, this weekend, demanding an end to cross-border vaccine rules. Truckers are on the frontlines fighting against medical tyranny as the next convoy could be soon headed to Washington, D.C. 

A Facebook group called "Convoy To DC 2022" has more than 63k members and is preparing a convoy of truckers to ride from California to Washington, D.C., to tell the Biden administration and progressives they're are done with overreaching health mandates. 

Dates and planned routes for Convoy To DC 2022 are expected to be released in the near term on a website and various social media platforms, and a GoFundMe page will be set up. The funds raised will help fund fuel costs and lodging for truckers participating in the movement. 

For truckers considering to partake in the convoy, we wanted to explain what's happening with diesel markets. 

Bloomberg reports ultra-low sulfur diesel futures have entered backwardation, a market condition where prices today are higher than future contracts trading months out. This is a bullish structure and the first time materializing since 2015. 

The backwardation comes as a powerful winter storm and cold weather have plagued the Eastern U.S., boosting heating demand. Diesel stockpiles in the central Atlantic region decreased to 19.7 million barrels last week, a seven-year seasonal low. Total US stockpiles are well under a 5-year average. 

Dwindling stockpiles and high demand have pressured spot diesel prices, jumping to an 8-year high this month, trading around $2.68 per gallon. 

Putting this all together for the organizers of the Convoy To DC 2022, the most significant expense for truckers will be soaring fuel costs. With backwardation in full swing, diesel prices are likely to move higher. A GoFundMe campaign could greatly alleviate expenses for those planning to make the cross-country drive.

This Canadian truck convoy has turned into a monstrous protest. I have never seen anything like this.

The idea is catching on in Europe. Several countries are now following suit.

What’s interesting though is the fact that here, in the US, only those “horrible” sites are talking about it.  Does this mean this is fake news?  The convoys don’t exist?

Well… I saw the videos.

I just checked CNN to see what they have to say about it.

Nada…. Zip… zilch

People who only go by the MSM have no clue what’s going on in the world.

metmike: Is that what YOUR MISinformation sources made up again Gunter?? Since you don't go to those sources for any information that I've seen you post here....... how could you possibly even know? The entire MSM had it and most of them BEFORE Wayne's far right  source's  article.

(CNN) - The anti-vaccine “Freedom Convoy” reached Canada’s capital of Ottawa on Saturday.

(NYT-1-28)Convoys of Canadian trucks are en route to Ottawa for a protest against vaccine mandates.

The “Freedom Convoy” had driven across Canada to reach the capital. The demonstrations on Saturday were raucous but largely peaceful.

Your attempt to push the false narrative that the MSM is covering up the truth and only your far right sources are telling the truth(which is what they want you to believe)..........failed again.

This was exactly my points in these threads over the weekend about how you are being tricked by your far right sources. This is another of hundreds of examples of exactly how it messes up your mindset to believe things that ARE NOT TRUE. 

It's happening on many days with many articles......the ones that the some of the most outspoken posters here go to in order to find out what they should believe in :

Hi metmike

Thank you for your links.

This movement in Canada started out with a few truck drivers. Trudeau called it a fringe minority.

As the days went by, this convoy grew and grew. Eventually they reached Ottawa… and from the pictures I have seen, they have pretty much occupied the government district and totally blocked all traffic in this area.  It seems to me, something needs to be done today, Monday, and traffic needs to be restored. Will the truckers yield?  All eyes are on Canada.

This “fringe minority’ has since turned into a world-wide movement, with similar convoys either being planned or already having started in Australia, Brazil and some European countries.

A quick comment about  I don’t go there to listen to Alex Jones. I go there for their actual news-reporting, especially the news out of Europe. I was born and raised in Europe, and I am very much interested in what goes on there, especially since the mass-migration has changed so much over there. Infowars provides me with factual news stories (backed by pictures and videos)

Back to the original subject…

Infowars held a 2-hour life session yesterday, covering the events in Ottawa (I didn’t watch it).  Today, several of their links address the events in Ottawa.  They also provide reports about the emerging convoys in some of the European countries.

This is called “journalism”…. not “fake news”

Thank you again for the links. I didn’t check all of them, but the ones I did check are from last week.However, early this morning,  I did check CNN, ABC, NPR, NBC, NYT …. and I saw no mention of this subject.

Quite obviously, the sources mentioned do not want to linger on this important subject. For up-to-date info you have to go to other sites.    I rest my case

Please stop making things up again.

all the sources you said you checked that didn’t have it......I found it in 10 seconds for each one and posted them all above in less than 5 minutes.

Even with the evidence indisputably debunking you, staring you right in the still double down on the MISinformation.

Readers take note: this is what far right MISinformation sources are doing to the brains that  they capture!

One of my objectives here is to free as many brains from far right MISinformation captivity as possible.

To set the record straight…

The links you posted are from previous days… however I noticed now that one of them was today’s news.

Early in the morning, when I checked the basic sites of CNN, ABC, NPR, NYT, NBC,,  there were other headlines, but nothing about the trucker convoy.

Now I see CNN and NPR have updated their site later in the morning..  ABC, NYT and NBC/MSNBC still silent

And absolutely none of them have mentioned anything about the spill-over into other countries

Sure Gunter, that's what you really meant by:

Now, you tell us that what you really  meant is that they didn't have anything at that moment that you checked, which only covered the last 10 hours of Monday(which still isn't true), which is the only thing that counts by Gunters new definition..........not the dozen other articles from previous days that broke the news ahead of Gunters sources that he claims are the only ones covering it.

Maybe you forgot that I was a main anchor for WEHT Evansville for 11 years and know a few things about covering the news. 

Like with the hundreds of  anti COVID vaxx MISinformation posts that  you abused us with,  you keep digging your holes deeper instead of  using good sources. Instead you are using the REALLY bad ones that lie all the time............and it's taught you to be that way. 

What happened to the Gunter that used to post here years ago?

It seems we have a problem with credibility

Trudeau is now claiming he is infected with covide 19 dispite being vaccinated and a booster

What does this mean

Is the vaccine not able to protect against covid 19 or is the disease just not as severe if vaccinated

I doubt there will be any way to prove any thing

But, the non vaxxed will feel vindicated

I have been vaxxed as has my wife and we both had the booster

We have both experienced covid symptoms not once but twice in the month of Jan. Had to cancel several appointments and then the quarantine and then the symptoms before medical people would book a new appointment

So: Did the vaccine work for us???

Oh well

There goes our holiday to Florida

I have a new infection

This one won't heal very quickly

Not covid related

Thanks Wayne,

Sorry to hear that your infection has returned.

Is it because of your diabetes again?

In you foot? Or somewhere else?


The vaccine was never supposed to keep everybody from getting COVID.

Nobody ever expected that to happen except for far right sites claiming it was supposed to do that.........and using that as bs evidence that the vaccine didn't work.

It reduced chances of being infected a great deal with Delta but didn't stop it. 

With Omicron being so contagious, a higher % of people vaccinated were getting Omicron than with Delta.

The biggest benefit that the  vaccine gave people(and still does) is causing immune systems to be programmed to make antibioties quickly AFTER being invaded by COVID so that COVID didn't escalate quickly to a severe case or death.

It decreased the odds of dying from DELTA by 11 times.

We know this from hundreds of studies and real world data(from billions of people) with absolute certainty. 

Covid-19: Unvaccinated face 11 times risk of death from delta variant, CDC data show


People refusing to get vaccinated, many were republicans that were bamboozled by far right anti science, anti vaxx propaganda, resulted in well over 100,000 unnecessary deaths from Delta last year. 

       90,000 US COVID-19 deaths could have been prevented
