    Report: Feds Order National Guard to Close I-495 to Derail Trucker Protest

    By: Paul Joseph Watson

    A conservative group claims it has spoken to sources within the Department of Transportation who admitted plans by the feds to order armed National Guard troops to close Washington DC’s Interstate Route 495 tomorrow in order to derail a mass protest and potential blockade being organized by a group called Truckers Ride for the Constitution.

    The sensational claim is posted on the Freedom Leadership Conference website, as well as prominent conservative blog RedState.com. The annual Freedom Leadership Conference has previously been sponsored by the likes of Judicial Watch and Human Events.

    According to Glenn Ryt, the plan to close the route that circles the nation’s capital will be implemented on Friday morning with the aid of armed National Guard troops from Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia who will use trucks, jeeps and armored vehicles to block traffic entering the Beltway.

    “These sources at the Department of Transportation have advised off the record that the DOT proposal included the confident belief that the Capitol Beltway shutdown will successfully achieve the twin goals of thwarting the trucker protest scheduled for a three day period starting on Friday, as well as deal another punishing blow to what they call “the crazy wing of the GOP” which refuses to capitulate to their demands to approve a budget that includes Obamacare funding,” writes Ryt.

    Demonstrators under the banner of Truckers Ride for the Constitution will arrive in DC tomorrow morning to snarl traffic as part of “a shot across the bow that will ripple across all branches of government.” 10,000 truckers are expected to continually circle the Beltway for three days, taking up two lanes and keeping a third clear to allow access for emergency vehicles.

    The group said speculation that the National Guard would block the Beltway was inaccurate, stating, “The Virginia State Police are working closely with our organization and have assured us that no such orders to the National Guard exist.”

    A separate Million Vet March will also take place in DC on Sunday morning at the site of the World War II memorial which was barricaded and wired shut by the feds earlier this week.

    On Saturday, Honor Flight veterans plan to break through barricades that have been placed around the Iwo Jima Monument just outside Arlington National Cemetery, setting up a potential confrontation with National Park Service employees. North Country Honor Flight executive director Daniel Kaifetz has asked for assistance from the Million Vet March protesters in allowing vets to gain access to the Iwo Jima Monument.

    “Since Interstate 495 is clearly a federal roadway,” report our DOT sources, and “the federal government is now closed because of the crazy House of Representatives Republicans, it is within the purview of the federal government to add it to the list of government properties that are closed and may not be used by citizens,” claims Ryt adding that the I-95 and I-66 in Northern Virginia could also be closed.

    The report seems somewhat dubious given that using National Guard troops to close the Beltway merely to counter a protest in the midst of a government shutdown could not possibly be justified by the Obama administration.

    Many have accused the White House of acting spitefully in closing down numerous national parks, roads, hiking trails and memorials, and one Park Ranger even told the Washington Times that an order has gone out “to make life as difficult for people as we can.”

    However, closing down a major highway surrounding the nation’s capital seems a step too far even for the Obama administration, which many charge has acted vindictively by using the shutdown as an excuse to punish the people as part of a political ploy to demonize its political opposition.

    Obama Orders National Guard ~> Shutdown 495 DC Beltway ~> Prevent Truckers Entry ~> Full Report

    If it was anyone other than Obama as POTUS, we'd never consider this possible. Problem is, Obama is POTUS.

    Sources within the Department of Transportation have revealed that their plan to use National Guard resources to close federally funded Interstate Route 495, circling the nation’s capital, have been approved by unknown White House officials and will be implemented on Friday morning, October 11, in order to thwart the three day Trucker slowdown announced on the Capitol Beltway starting that date, using the federal government shutdown as justification.

    The National Guard resources to be used to thwart the truckers will include rifle toting National Guardsmen called up from units that will be coming in from Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia. They will use Guardsmen on foot and using trucks, jeeps and armored vehicles, which will be stationed at all entrance ramps to the Beltway to block incoming traffic starting early Friday morning.

    Calls to both the White House and the Department of Transportation to confirm this story were not answered at press time. Unless an announcement is made in advance, it appears the first notice of this new White House plan to punish House GOP members who have cited their Constitutional authority to approve – or not approve – all spending proposed by the White House and their Democratic allies in the Senate, will be early Friday morning.

    Our DOT sources point to their Department’s website as justification for the paucity of information and our inability to confirm this story in advance, where they state, “during the government shutdown, some online content may not be updated on a regular basis…”

    These sources at the Department of Transportation have advised off the record that the DOT proposal included the confident belief that the Capitol Beltway shutdown will successfully achieve the twin goals of thwarting the trucker protest scheduled for a three day period starting on Friday, as well as deal another punishing blow to what they call “the crazy wing of the GOP” which refuses to capitulate to their demands to approve a budget that includes Obamacare funding.

    Nothing Obama has done and continues to do surprises me. If it were illegal aliens they'd be escorting them through.
    We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere." And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union.

    I do not find this to be the least bit surprising. Since this demonstration was first announced, every Federal and State agency has been preparing to thwart the truckers by whatever means possible. There are several obstacles to be considered now. How far is the government willing to go to stop the trucks? If altercations happen between the truckers and others, what will be the reaction by the National Guard? Since the Guard troops are supposed to be armed, will they fire on civilians who take part in this demonstration if altercations do arise? Will this be the occasion where we determine if the true "patriots" in the armed forces and police departments will fire on American citizens? If citizens are fired upon, what will the reaction be then? You can bet your bottom dollar people will be checked for weapons but we can only hope that some hothead, from either side, doesn't do something stupid. Unfortunately, I think the administration is too stupid to realize that the American people are getting fed up with total incompetence and politicians worrying about their egos and power rather than trying to run the country. Henry Kissinger said Obama had been groomed to be president and to lead the NWO. Just where in hell is he leading us? I am just going to keep looking up! Even so, come Lord Jesus!!

    If the National Guard troops fire, you can consider this the beginning of an American Revolution, History repeats it's self and Obama will find himself in the seat of the English.
    Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American Soldier....One died for your soul; the other for your freedom.

  7. Obviously none of the above have lived in the DC area. I grew up there and learned to drive there. If you close the beltway, You do way more harm than a billion truck drivers could do. Semis already clog the beltway, or maybe I should say the stupid cars make it hard for them to move. This story is truly boulder dash. REALLY? It would make more sense for this fiction story if the national guard blocked the streets in and out of DC.

    Nope. Never been there however, I do believe those truckers, motorcyclists, etc. will be able to get someone's attention up there. Don't give up before the battle starts! By the way, the word is balderdash, not boulder dash.
