Well, many of us knew it was going to happen.  The US convoy is here.  The link is at epochtimes, which is a log in type thing.  I'm sure its reposted on some other AP outlet as well:
m.theepochtimes.com...

Have to say, this has red flags for me. Many won't agree with me. If not, get a laugh from it.
Let's count red flags, beginning with the fact that this thing is incredibly organized, and the MSM likes it.
So, red flag #1, heavily organized;  This is supported more later.
Red flag #2, the MSM likes it.  Search for people's convoy, you'll see MSM links.


A trucker-led convoy will kick off on Feb. 23 from the Barstow area in California, and head eastbound toward the capital of the constitutional republic—Washington D.C.—to peacefully protest to end the federal government’s emergency powers (pdf) declared since March 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and restore freedoms protected by the Constitution.

Red flag #3, its coming from California. Ending in DC. Leftist start and finish. Also, have to disagree with the strategy. First of all, DC is already blockaded and armed up. Second, the media will seize on the shipping disruption, if any occur, and likely couple the economic damage with the cross border damage from the Ottawa convoy. These could get 'labeled' because they're affecting north American trade as a whole. That's not what I'm saying, but I can already hear media saying it.


The large convoy goes by the name “The People’s Convoy” and will be non-partisan and cross-cultural in nature.

Red flag #4, social justice crap where it doesn't need to be stated.


After seeing the problems the Canadian convoy had with their GoFundMe page, they set up three different means to receive donations via credit card, PayPal, or cryptocurrency.


Looking pretty organized, but they go above and beyond. 


The donations are being handled through the nonprofit American Foundation for Civil Liberties & Freedom which is being supported through private banking as well as accountants and lawyers that will track the donations and place them accordingly.

Now, we're talking organized!  Everyone brings in large non-profits for grass roots protests, right? 
Red flag #5, large non-profit set up and ready to go before the people are.
Red flag #6, private banking.
Red flag #7, 'tracking' donations to place them?  WTF


Some of their plans are still being held “pretty close to the chest,” but the organizers will be issuing updates as the event takes shape.

Red flag #8, heavily organized, but no transparency in the plans. 


“A team of 17,000 doctors is standing in support of us. We’re excited to see that,” Brase said, “the white coat standing with the blue-collar,” referring to a petition to review the COVID-19 narrative signed by over 17,000 doctors, led by Dr. Robert Malone.

Some people trust Malone, but for me, he's red flag #9.


The truckers have security protocols still under development, as well as a code of conduct for participants, which will be uploaded to their website in the upcoming days. They also have contingency plans in the event that they are blocked along the way.

Red flag #10, contingency plan, codes of conduct, and a website?  How long has this been planned?  I am curious about the contingency plan though. Are they going to out maneuver the cops with a convoy? I would suggest planning around bridges.


Brase believes that there are already troublemakers trying to infiltrate the convoy.

Red flag #11, how does he know this? Best way to get rid of them is to out them before the convoy starts. Unless, its drama to pull the patriot heartstring.


They want the emergency powers act activated in response to the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus to be nullified

Red flag #12, our people don't call it that.  Sheep do.  The flag goes to use of buzzwords.


Human rights attorney Leigh Dundas is working as a clearinghouse for information in order to effectuate the goals of the convoy in a “100 percent peaceful, law-abiding,” and “successful” way.

I told you it was heavily organized.  This is the first I've heard of it, and there's even a human rights attorney on board. 


Dundas told The Epoch Times that the goal of the protest is to handle the situation at “the root level.”

What if we read that through doublespeak?

I could go on, but I've made my point.  I have doubts. It doesn't feel like the people had anything to do with this.
Everyone is free to support whatever it is they choose to.  Many people won't even see the situation the same way that I do.  I'm ok with that.  I just feel like I've seen this movie before, and its not for me.

“The People’s Convoy”


Personally, I didn't see the need to go past this one. I did read all of your post, but that one is the open air lie. I tend to agree with your assessment in general, but I think it's important to see how this develops, could be a patsy/false flag in there at the end, who knows.

Something seems fishy about this convoy. I wonder if it is being stimulated by some group to persuade the left to incorporate emergency powers when some of the people start to get riled up. Sure, the ones running things would want to put an end to anyone challenging them, we already know this can be steering this. Where is the money actually coming from to fund this?

We see a lot of deception in the new world some are trying to create, it is hard not to be a skeptic of stuff like this.

Not surprising, with all the millions of dollars Freedom Truckers raised, everybody with a suitable skill is going to try to get a cut. If possible, they need to hire as many off-duty police officers for security, and hire a trash clean-up crew once they depart from DC.

They're doing a "let's go Brandon" to the convoy concept, spinning it into their own parade. Best approach to disarm the protest is to sponsor the protest.

If the Convoy in US/DC and other states succeeds. Trudeau would be left alone. Remember when Biden said he wouldn't push for these mandates and passports? but he did anyway?

Why is this in a "Diseases and Pandemics" forum?

The biggest concerns to Americans are Economic and Safety related.

True. To get the most bang in terms of attendance and attention, the USA protest must bundle the top 3 American Citizen concerns into a platform that every American can easily recall and recite, if/when asked.

If this Convoy disturbs the corporate trade routes and disrupts lawful national commerce. What do you think will be the response of the Feds? It won't be like in Canada. And there's always the teamsters to take into account.

That's a good point. I didn't think of that, but they do love to self-mandate things.

You mean sort of like how the worthless politicians nationwide disturbed corporate trade and disrupted, nay suspended even, lawful national commerce in the name of a widespread #ing case of the sniffles in 2020 and beyond? Hmmmm... if the feds whine and complain about truckers taking actions that do the same, it sort of makes the feds look like a collective of hypocritical bitches, doesn't it?



What do you think will be the response of the Feds? It won't be like in Canada. And there's always the teamsters to take into account.




What do you think US truckers responses to any fascist physical assaults from the feds will look like? It won't be like in Canada.

The "Union proud" seem to be proud of being bent over so long as they're bent over by one of the union chiefs' preferred political entities (not to mention sweetly talked through the process by said union chief) but, remember union honks, "it's your money."
The only bigger joke than union bosses are the saps that willingly send portions of their earnings to said union bosses each paycheck.

Biden admin apparently got DHS to attempt to stop a convoy in the US. They have enough problems. So this sounds like a leftist intelligence/law enforcement trap. A la trudeau lets get those patriots but still can't lose their leftist indoctrination and speak so it shows.

Good job!

Another good reason to avoid as much "socialism" in one's life as possible. The Canadian government is more entwined into the lives of Canadian citizens. I think the government even approves their medical procedures.

Once the government has that much control, it's difficult to properly tell government leaders to go phuk themselves.
