Breaking News: Second StopTheTires2020 protest canceled

A second StopTheTires protest scheduled to take place Nov. 26-29 has been canceled, according to the group’s Facebook page.

The group, which had picked Veterans Day for its first protest to boycott delivery of nonessential supplies to major U.S. cities “as a way to show support for President Trump,” said it was waiting on the final results of the 2020 election before staging another protest.

The one-day strike last Wednesday had no impact on the supply chain, according to industry sources.

The group, made up of truck drivers, members of the U.S. military and their families, along with Trump supporters, had also wanted to take a stand against President-elect Joe Biden’s “ban on fracking.”

Biden clarified, however, that his proposal only opposes hydraulic fracking on federal lands, not all fracking.

This is a developing story.

  1. Stop, just stop.

    Trump lost period. The Reps want the Whitehouse again? Then put up a better candidate. In the mean time get in your trucks and start rolling. You guys are an essential service. Stop whining and get to work!

  2. It’s hard to imagine that the supposedly new leader of US, can’t even put 2 coherent sentences together, and the American people want HIM to be our leader? It’s no wonder this country is indeed in terrible condition. ‘Come on Man’, is going to be his death slogan.

  3. They always cancel~ just a bunch of Ladies~ pussies .We got Treason going on~ they won’t have a job , if they don’t shut it down~ but they won’t B/C/ they are pussies these are not Bikers rough and tumble Marines they are pussies~
