US ‘Freedom Convoy’ Fails Miserably – Disbands When Only 5 Trucks Show Up For Protest

After seeing what transpired in Canada recently, the organizers of what was billed as the “US Freedom Convoy” had very high hopes.

The plan was for American truck drivers to roll into Washington, D.C. just in time for President Joe Biden’s State of the Union Address on Tuesday and shut down the nation’s capital as a way of protesting COVID restrictions and other issues that many on the political right constantly whine and moan about.

But The Independent reports that when only five big rigs showed up at a meeting point in Las Vegas, the truckers dispersed and went their separate ways because their grandiose plans fizzled out before they even got to the District of Columbia:

A convoy of truckers who were heading from California to Washington DC for Joe Biden’s State of the Union (SOTU) address have been told to find another protest fleet after theirs fell apart before its first stop.

Organisers of the “US Freedom Convoy” – which had been expecting up to 2,000 truckers prior to its departure from Los Angeles on Friday – disbanded the caravan and cancelled all associated rallies on Saturday after only five rigs arrived in Las Vegas.

“To prevent another rally without our truckers – our team will not be moving thru Salt Lake City and Denver,” organisers wrote in an update following the disappointing turnout in Sin City.

Damn! They expected 2,000 and got a measly five? That’s one hell of a failure.

It didn’t take long before recriminations began online, with many noting they wound up looking like fools for being a part of such a massive letdown:

“I spent days trying to coordinate a rally in support of our truckers,” wrote one Facebook user. “I have three tiny kids and work a full-time job and stretched myself thin then made myself look so stupid. I’m pretty hurt by all this.”

Wow! You mean some right-wing asshats took advantage of people so they could grift and get attention for their bogus “cause?” Sounds a lot like a failed, one-term former president who goes by the name Donald Trump.

Delusional Trump Gets Slammed For Saying NATO Wouldn’t Exist If It Wasn’t For Him

Even though failed, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump is known for being a habitual liar and malignant narcissist, something he claimed today has set off a wave of angry responses.

In a statement he had his spokesperson, Liz Harrington, post on Twitter (since the one-term ex-president remains banned from the platform), Trump boldly claimed that were it not for him, the NATO alliance wouldn’t exist:

“I hope everyone is able to remember that it was me, as President of the United States, that got delinquent NATO members to start paying their dues, which amounted to hundreds of billions of dollars. There would be no NATO if I didn’t act strongly and swiftly. Also, it was me that got Ukraine the very effective anti-tank busters (Javelins) when the previous Administration was sending blankets. Let History so note!”

Talk about revisionist history. The Donald is now claiming that NATO would have crumbled if he hadn’t been president, despite the fact that he signaled on several occasions it might be time to disband the alliance, which was formed in 1949.

In 2019, NBC News reported:

The Russian Orthodox church celebrated Christmas on Jan. 7, but President Vladimir Putin received his present from America a few days late. The destruction or weakening of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has been the goal of Soviet and Russian leaders since the organization’s creation following World War II. New reports that President Donald Trump repeatedly discussed with advisors his conviction that the United States should leave NATO represent nothing short of a triumph for Russian national security policy — even if nothing definitive has happened (yet).

Who would have benefitted from the U.S. leaving NATO? Putin and Russia. And had Trump done so, the Russian army would likely have already gobbled up every member of the alliance within a 1,000-mile radius of Moscow.

It didn’t take long before pushback to Trump’s bullshit began to appear on social media:

When July 4 rolls around, will Trump claim the Declaration of Independence was his idea, too?

Donald Trump Jr. WTF?!

Don Jr. Kicks Off His CPAC Speech With A Soliloquy About Drugs: ‘Crack Is Not Really My Thing’

The 2022 Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC), a three-day orgy of lies, conspiracy theories, and fanatical worship of authoritarian assholes (Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin) has come to an end, but the finale of the event provided what may well go down in history as one of the most bizarre and surreal speeches ever given.

Donald Trump Jr., eldest son of failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump, took the stage and immediately began talking about drugs, which is more than a tad bit ironic considering the rumors that have surrounded Don Jr. for years regarding his own alleged substance abuse, most notably cocaine.

Consider two examples that some say show Junior under the influence of coke or some other stimulant:

So it came as more than a bit of a surprise when Don Jr. opened his CPAC speech by making odd allegations about Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden. But in the process, Junior also seemed to suggest that he might have some skeletons in his own substance abuse closet:

“There are consequences to being on our side, right? If there weren’t, I’d become an artist and sell my crap for half a million dollars. If there weren’t, I would take a billion dollars from China knowing that that’s just fine.

“I’d have a laptop with all of our enemies and it won’t matter. Crack’s not really my thing but if it was, it would be fine if I was on that side.”

Why in the hell is he SCREAMING?! He’s wearing a freaking lapel microphone that magnifies his words, so why is he yelling like a man in need of a Thorazine injection?

From there, Don Jr. raged from one topic to another, desperately trying to connect his disjointed ranting in some coherent conspiracy theory involving the media, Joe Biden, Democrats, and (of course) Hillary Clinton.

Reaction from those who viewed the video of Junior’s speech was interesting, to say the least.

We totally get it, Junior: You don’t have to smoke your cocaine. You always use a crisp Ben Franklin for the lines you hoover up. How refined you are!

Lauren Boebert: Ukraine Needs To Be ‘Liberated’ From Oppression, But So Does Canada

For some time now, it’s been painfully obvious that Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) isn’t exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer, and that her main “talent” as it were is saying stupid shit that leaves people shaking their heads in disbelief.

As you’d expect, the Colorado Republican spoke at the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) convention in Orlando, Florida this weekend, but it was something she said after she’d finished her speech that set off a firestorm of mockery on Twitter.

Speaking with Fox Nation hosts Pete Hegseth and Kayleigh McEnany, Boebert was asked about the situation in Ukraine, where Russian troops have invaded and are now advancing on the capital city of Kyiv. She remarked:

“I pray for Ukraine and I wish them the best. They have a great president right now, who really said clearly, live free or die. He said, ‘I don’t need a ride, give me ammunition. The fight is right here.'”

Hey, that’s actually a great statement. Bobert deserves credit for that. We all wish the people of Ukraine the very best as they endure an attack from the Russian military.

But it was what Boebert said next that completely ruined her previous good work:

“But we also have neighbors to the north who need freedom and who need to be liberated and we need that right here at home.”

Apparently, Boebert thinks Canada needs “freedom” because Prime Minister Justin Trudeau dared to clear a convoy of trucks that had been parked on a bridge leading to the United States. The reason for the so-called “Freedom Convoy” was supposedly because a tiny percentage of Canadian truck drivers (less than 10%) don’t want to get vaccinated for COVID, so they decided to punish the rest of the country to satisfy their own selfishness.

Let the mockery begin:

WATCH Tom Cotton Get Called Out For Refusing To Condemn Trump’s Lavish Praise Of Vladimir Putin

Proving that he has the spine of a jellyfish, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) resolutely refused to condemn failed, one-term former President Donald Trump for his praise of Russian President Vladimir Putin and his invasion of Ukraine, which he called “savvy” and “genius.”

ABC host George Stephanopoulos asked Cotton point blank on Sunday:

“Are you prepared to condemn that kind of rhetoric from the leader of your party?”

The Arkansas Republican replied:

“George, you’ve heard what I have to say about Vladimir Putin, that he is a ruthless dictator who has launched a naked unprovoked war of aggression. Thankfully, the Ukrainian army has anti-tank missiles that President Obama would not supply, that we did supply last time Republicans were in charge in Washington.”

Stephanopoulos pressed the senator again:

“Why can’t you condemn Donald Trump for those comments?”

Cotton waffled and refused to respond:

“If you want to know what Donald Trump thinks about Vladimir Putin or any other topic, I would encourage you to invite him on your show. I don’t speak on behalf of other politicians. They can speak for themselves.”

The ABC host asked again:

“You are a senior member of the Republican Party. Donald Trump is the leader of the Republican Party. He said last night, again, suggested that he would be running for president. When Fox News asked if he had a message for Vladimir Putin, he said he has no message. Why can’t you condemn that? I feel quite confident that if Barack Obama or Joe Biden said something like that, you’d be first in line to criticize them.”


“Again, George, if you want to talk to the former president about his views or his message, you can have him on your show. My message to Vladimir Putin is quite clear. He needs to leave Ukraine unless he wants to face moms and teenagers with Molotov cocktails and grandmothers and grandfathers with AK-47s for years to come.”

Even though Trump is weaker politically than he’s ever been, most Republicans still refuse to cross him. That alone tells you the party is nothing more than a collection of gutless sycophants. Every last one of them needs to be voted out of office.
