You’ve heard the saying, here comes the cavalry, but when was the last time you saw that happen? Coutts Border crossing between Alberta and Montana has as (what looks like) hundreds on horseback arrived to support protesting truckers. The cowboys (and gals) are coming! via Brant Hansen with Payden Mendenhall near #Coutts today pic.twitter.com/O1WjeguKPI — (@SandruhAnn) February 5, 2022 This video is over three minutes of riders on horseback clomping past the camera. It’s an impressive show of support. According to reports, a deal was underway to move the protest away from the border, but that fell apart. The truckers are not leaving, and they’ve been joined by other groups who oppose the mandates.
It’s been over a week. The premier has disclosed that changes to the policy in his province could be announced within a week. That’s a long time, and there’s plenty of political pressure coming from both sides, but the truckers don’t appear of a mind to move, even though the Dudley Doorights are opening investigations.
No one seems all that moved by the announcement, and why would they. These drivers lost their livelihood. They don’t have work anymore, thanks to the government. We’re talking about people, alone, in cabs, with little human contact opposing a vaccine that doesn’t protect them from the flu or stop them from spreading it.
All the other support is just sauce for the Canadian goose, and Trudeau’s government looks like it is the one getting cooked.
Then there’s Biden’s mandate. With the supply chain messed up already and plenty of work waiting for them when they are ready, the politicians, may be overplaying their hands. But they are a stubborn lot—all self-important and imperious.
How much longer will this play out before the experts realize that truckers don’t need votes to keep their job.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
