Truckers Plan Shut Down For Veterans Day; Want Everything But Medical Deliveries Halted

By Stephanie Malench

[email protected]

A group of truck drivers across the United States have formed a group called Stop The Tires 2020 and have planned a shut down of all deliveries except medical across the United States starting at 2:00 a.m. on Wednesday, November 11 for 24 hours.

Organizer Jeremy Rewoldt, a truck driver for 15 years, said that “The goal for today [November 11] was to get the word out using the date and get ready for the four day stoppage. When I first started this page I didn’t think would get the traction it did. The protests that have gone in our nation are too extreme with blocking roads and looting. We are just asking drivers to pull over and turn off their engines”.

According to the group’s Facebook page, “President Trump has worked diligently for four long years to protect the rights and freedoms of all Americans and very importantly the blue collar workers of this country. The blue-collar workers are literally the ones that make the wheels turn! Without truck drivers this country could not survive for long.

“We would like to make a point that we do not wish for any companies or private truck drivers supplying any kind of medical supplies and/or services to participate in our movement….

“We will stop all tires for 24 hours on Veteran’s Day 11/11/20. If this is not effective and our leaders do not respect that blue-collar truck drivers are having to face domestic terrorism, primarily in Democrat cities all over the United States, and that we do not support the banning of fracking in any way, then we will have our second Stop the Tires for four full days 11/26/20- 11/29/20.”

Rewoldt stressed about the truck strike “I’m not putting anyone in a position they weren’t in six months ago [with empty shelves] and is not asking truckers to block traffic”.

When asked if business had been impacted at both the TA and Pilot Truck Stops in Troy, they were unaware anything was going on.

    I’m PROUD of the fact that my dad .. my uncle.. and my deceased husband were truck drivers. They were gone all the time and they missed the families the would leave at home. I remember when I was in school it was father daughter dance.. I didn’t go because he wasn’t home. I remember back in the 70’s when truckers went on strike.. my dad got shot at!!!! Just because he was a trucker sitting in a lot close to his delivery point!!! The things they miss .. ball games dances a prom .. graduations ..ALL TO KEEP THIS COUNTRYS SHELVES FULL with the items for your families..
    thank you drivers

    I think this movement is a great idea, I stand behind it, and have passed the word to many other truckers, I wish there were more people showing the same interests. All the talk about uneducafed trump supporters, if Biden wins this world is screwed, it will show how stupid the Democrats and Biden really are when they ruin the economy.

    Everything you own has been touched by a truck,
    Most more than 10 times before you receive it.
    When it comes to shutting down the coal, oil and natural gas industries there is more than just gasoline, diesel fuel, motor oil, or coal for power plants. Think about plastics, synthetic materials for clothing, carbon fiber, tires (very little natural rubber in tires today), Aluminum production, steel production, heating and cooling for homes and businesses, fertilizer for your lawns or food production. These are just a few uses for the oil& gas industries and the coal industries, so you better think twice before you elect a MORON to lead this Great Country that wants to do away with fracking, drilling or mining.

      I feel sorry for you. Quit labeling 70M Trump supporters as uneducated, hateful and lazy people. Where is the unity that Biden wants. Ha, it will never happen because of people like you. How about the Biden supporters celebrating Biden win in the streets and someone has Trump’s head on a stick. I guess that demonstrates the level of character people like you have. How about the demonstrations when Trump won in 2016. People marching with vaginas on their head. Again, that really shows the character of people like you. You must fall in that group of people that wants to receive everything free and not work for what you want.

      I have an MBA and am an educated electrical engineer. I have been CFO and COO at various corporations. I also have 20 years experience at developing game theory and assert protection methodologies. I am a member of Mensa. With that qualified, I am a Trump supporter and absolute fiscal conservative, because I understand numbers and finance, and know what is good for our country. The self-serving interests of each tiny minority label, who don’t mind being placed in a labeled box, does nothing good for the nation at large. Big, corrupt nursemaid government disables personal independence and is fiscally wasteful- not to mention untenable. I could say more, but chew on that for a while, see if you can even understand it, and think twice before you make such baseless claims about those who support our President. You have everything against him, but nothing on him. Those who follow the MSM blindly would be the biggest idiots, I would say.

    This is a propoganda stunt at best. Truckers completely are at the heart of our economy. Where were these protests this spring when they were being paid .50/mile on loads so most parked and didn’t move loads because the economy was shut down and the freight brokers were taking all the money on the loads that were moving? These guys can’t afford to park, they already parked during covid and many lost their businesses or retired. I am on the side of truckers 100%. They get the shaft at every turn. However, this so called movement is a joke based on what Trump has said the new presidential cabinet is going to do and not off fact. EVERYONE that is for America is for the American trucker!!!! Truckers need their day, but it isn’t to support a President that is leading office, it is support the truckers of America who deserve better, and who will see better days in a new Democratic America led by a professional in 2021. I will join the picket lines and do everything I can if that is not the case. But you can’t protest something that is made up, complete propoganda.

I have my CDL. Truck drivers are constantly mistreated and beaten down mentally/physically. During the riots the way treated our truckers and emergency services people was disgusting.

The owner of the apartment complex will charge his residents higher rent, and that employer will be cutting his employees salaries to make up the difference. so while you say “yeah its only the people making over $400k”, who does it really hurt? middle class americans who btw, make up the largest demographic in the country

This mentality is that of the protesters that facilitated the road blocks and violence. Question, If you had a family member that was a truck driver, and they were not only stopped, but pulled from the safety of their vehicle and severely beaten, would have the same opinion? If folks didn’t take the same posture you are taking, we would not be having this discussion. While I’m not a truck driver, I think I’ll join them in the looney bin. Have a nice day……
