“Truckers Ride for the Constitution” Oct 11th, Plan to Clog DC, Arrest Congress

Truckers to Shut Down America, a group claiming to support the Constitution but with an organizer who believes Obama is the Anti-Christ and might declare martial law, have big plans for October 11, 2013:

Tractor-trailer drivers will intentionally clog the inner loop of the Washington, D.C., beltway beginning on the morning of Oct. 11…Earl Conlon, a Georgia trucker who is handling logistics for the protest, told U.S. News tractor-trailer drivers will circle the beltway “three lanes deep” as he rides with other participants to Congress to seek the arrest of congressmen for allegedly disregarding the Constitution.

Because nothing says you love America more than screwing up the morning commute, though Conlon is offering up a little bit of relief– D.C. commuters who wish to be allowed past the convoy, which will be observing the 55 mph speed limit, must have “T2SDA” – an acronym for the event’s original name, “Truckers to Shut Down America” – written on their vehicle. Conlon says:

Everybody that doesn’t have a supporter sticker on their window, good luck: Nobody in, nobody out. It’s going to be real fun for anyone who is not a supporter, [and] if cops decide to give us a hard time, we’re going to lock the brakes up, we’re going to stop right there, we’re going to be a three lane roadblock.

And it just gets zanier. Conlon, an author and  Tea Party member (which has me confused because aren’t there are lot of Teapartiers in Congress who are screwing things up for America?) is calling for a citizens grand jury, a pool of jurors convened without court approval, as the mechanism for indicting government officials who he wants arrested:

We’re asking for the arrest of everyone in government who has violated their oath of office….We want these people arrested, and we’re coming in with the grand jury to do it. We are going to ask the law enforcement to uphold their constitutional oath and make these arrests. If they refuse to do it, by the power of the people of the United States and the people’s grand jury, they don’t want to do it, we will. … We the people will find a way…What we want to do is go in nice and peaceful and keep it as peaceful as possible… but if they decide to get ugly with us we’re going to do what we have to do,” he said. “If all I get is one or two congressmen walked out of there in handcuffs, that will be a shot across the bow that will ripple across all branches of government. … I hope they are all civil enough and brave enough to step out onto the congressional steps.

High on Conlon’s list of potential arrestees? Nancy Pelosi and Dianne Feinstein. And maybe even Obama. Conlon says

Obama committed “treason” by allegedly funneling weapons to al-Qaida-linked rebels in Syria. Members of Congress who support arming Syrian rebels, Conlon said, are accessories to the alleged crime.

Arresting members of Congress may not be legal, in fact it could be considered kidnapping.

Truckers for the Constitution’s Facebook page has almost 50,000 likes. Truckers protesting is nothing new but Conlon brings a special kind of crazy to the convoy. At Tea Party Command Center he writes:

i’ve always believed Obama to be the Anti Christ from the day i first laid eyes one him.. not to mention the dreams i have had for the past 15 years showing me a man in office who i’ve never heard of before. then comes  2008 and the dreams get more detailed and intense… you figure it out..

maybe i am crazy?

And this:

THINK OF IT LIKE THIS:  if Obastard declares Marshal Law. we will then Know WHO and where they are.. and then we will have a clear knowledge of who supports them and WHO TO SHOOT..
