A trucker convoy is hitting the DC Beltway for the 4th time after taking a break Wednesday due to the rain. This time, Sen. Ted Cruz, is with them.

"Thank you to The People’s Convoy for speaking out for freedom!" tweeted Cruz. "Petty government tyrants shouldn’t force people to make private health care decisions."

The group, known as the People's Convoy, has been in Hagerstown since March 4. They are here to protest against COVID-19 mandates.

So far the traffic impacts during the week have been minimal.

The group discussed "the harmful effects of President Biden's vaccine mandates" with the senators.

The truckers, who are staged at Hagerstown Speedway in Hagerstown,  plan to take Rt 40e to Rt 63s to I-70e to I-270 to I-495 to I-270 to I-70 to Rt 63n to Rt 40w and back to the Hagerstown Speedway.

7News spoke to several supporters who had gathered along bridges to cheer on the group over the weekend.

"I’m a patriot. I always have been. I’m really outraged what’s been done with the country under COVID," said Lin Bradley, of Bethesda.

The convoy has called the vaccine and mask mandates a "government overreach."

WHO ARE THE TRUCKERS & WHY ARE THEY PROTESTING?

Hundreds of trucks, many from the cross-country convoy, and more than 1,000 truckers and their supporters converged on Hagerstown’s Speedway stadium and parking lot. From the signs they displayed affixed to their pick-up trucks and various other vehicles, the message was: Trump is good, Biden is bad and their protest is all about “freedom.”

It began with freedom from mask mandates, but since most states have dropped the mandates, the issue is to end the government's ability to invoke “emergency powers.”

Maureen Steele, a spokesperson for The People's Convoy, said of government actions under emergency powers, “the cure was worse than the disease, suicide rates through the roof, divorce through the roof.”

Another group, The American Truckers Freedom Convoy, left Washington State on March 1 and were in town on March 6.

DC OFFICIALS SAY THEY ARE PREPARED

According to ABC News, on Monday, Defense Secretary Austin approved requests from Capitol Police and DC Homeland Security to extend National Guard support at traffic control points in the District till Wednesday.

Chris Rodriguez, the Director of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, says officials have been watching the convoys and "took note" of what happened in Ottawa, Canada over the last month. They have been communicating with counterparts across the country and locally in Maryland and Virginia about what to expect.

"Virginia State Police continues to monitor and prepare for potential commercial and passenger vehicle convoys affecting traffic in and around the National Capital Region (NCR) through the weekend. State police also continue to communicate with our NCR local, state, and federal partners concerning this developing situation.

Virginia State Police respects the public’s First Amendment rights and has been in contact with various groups’ organizers to ensure their understanding of Virginia traffic laws. These communications have also enabled us to share our expectations related to keeping traffic flowing safely and efficiently on Virginia highways, especially in the case of emergencies and for first responder vehicles.

In advance of any convoys entering the NCR region, Virginians can expect to see an increased patrol presence by Virginia troopers and our Motor Carrier Safety teams, as part of the department’s operational plan for this still-fluid situation. These efforts are to mitigate the impact of additional traffic volume on already congested roadways and Northern Virginia communities."

WHO and WHAT is behind it all ? : >

The bottom line is for the people to regain their original, moral principles, which have intentionally been watered out over the past generations by our press, TV, and other media owned by the Illuminati/Bilderberger Group, corrupting our morals by making misbehavior acceptable to our society. Only in this way shall we conquer this oncoming wave of evil.
