WATCH: ‘People’s Convoy’ of 1,000 US Truckers Reportedly Getting Ready to Head For DC

A ‘People’s Convoy’ of 1,000 US truckers is reportedly gearing up to head from California to DC.

According to a report on Newsmax, the protest against COVID-19 mandates is scheduled to begin before the end of the month — but the exact start date was not provided.

Eric Bolling spoke to convoy organizers Brian Brase and Maureen Steele who announced that the protest will not rely on big tech companies for fundraising, as GoFundMe shut down the fundraiser for the Canadian convoy and GiveSendGo was hacked after hosting it.

“We have been able to really garner some of the best and brightest on our team to make sure that this convoy goes off without a hitch. We have a logistics specialist, tacticians, we’re ensuring we have fuel. We’ve brought on Exemplar Financial, which has seven offices throughout the country with lawyers and accountants that are overseeing our fundraising to make sure that’s buttoned up,” Steele said.

The organizer added, “our funds are not going to be able to be frozen or hijacked.” The group intends to protect the funds by having them placed in an escrow account.

Pilot Josh Yoder also appeared in the segment as organizers say that airplane pilots will also be participating in the convoy.

The organizers claim that they have 1,000 truckers ready to participate “right out the gate,” but that it will likely grow as it moves from California to DC.

“I think you’re going to see it grow as we move across the country,” Brase said. “Initially, we’ve projected potentially a little over a thousand trucks right out the gate to start.”

According to a Rasmussen poll published this week, the majority of Americans say that they would support a trucker protest in the US.

Biden Is Doomed: 50% of Likely Voters Now Support Impeaching POTUS

Voters continue to be let down by President Biden and now and significant numbers are saying they would support his impeachment. Many are certain that Republicans will, in fact, impeach him if they win a congressional majority in the 2022 midterm elections, according to a poll released Tuesday.

The Rasmussen Reports poll, sponsored by the conservative website The National Pulse, found that about 50 percent of voters say Biden should be impeached.

Rasmussen tweeted that 74 percent of Republican respondents wanted Biden impeached, while 34 percent of Democrats and 42 percent of Independents agreed.

The National Pulse further reported that the impeachment drive crossed racial lines.

About 50 percent of white respondents, 50 percent of black respondents, and more than 50 percent of other minorities said that Biden should be impeached, according to National Pulse.

Even more telling, the poll included government workers, according to The National Pulse: About half of those respondents supported the idea of impeachment.

Entrepreneurs, retired Americans, and many working in the private sector agreed. Most also said that if the Republicans win the House of Representatives this fall, an impeachment will soon follow.

In surprising contrast, the poll asked whether the two impeachments of Trump were good, bad, or did not make much difference.

“Only 36 percent of respondents said the impeachment was a ‘good’ thing, with 47 percent arguing that it was a bad move,” the National Pulse reported. “Sixteen percent stated they did not think the impeachment made much of a difference. However, Trump’s approval ratings rose 18 percentage points after the partisan impeachment of his presidency.”

Two of Biden’s major failures this year were highlighted in the report. Respondents listed failed immigration policies and the miserable withdrawal from Afghanistan as two of the main reason they supported impeachment.

According to Rasmussen, the poll of 1,000 likely voters was taken Jan. 26 and 27 using an automated question system. It had a margin of error of 3 percent.

This support for Biden’s impeachment should come as no surprise.

His support in polls has been dropping throughout his first year in office.

In most recent major polling averages, only 41.8 percent approve of Biden, according to FiveThirtyEight.

More importantly, though, Biden is losing the approval of his own party. Pew Research reported last week that approval from Democrats has slipped about 7 percentage points since September, and now only about three-quarters of Democrats approve of the president.

Meanwhile about nine out of 10 Republicans disapprove of the job that Biden is doing, Pew Research reported.

Biden’s first year has been a disaster, as he has made demonstrably little progress on solving any major issues facing the nation, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, and has made others worse, like illegal immigration.

And since Biden has given no sign of changing course as he advances into his second year as president, that’s not likely to get better any time soon. If his own party is starting to turn more against him, a Republican House this fall could wreak havoc on him.

GREAT NEWS: 58% of Voters Say that the Media is “The Enemy of the People”

According to a 2021 Rasmussen phone poll of 1000 likely US voters, about 58% of the American voting public views the media as the “enemy of the people.” Rasmussen Reports has this to say:

A new national telephone and online survey by Rasmussen Reports finds that 58% of Likely U.S. Voters at least somewhat agree that the media are “truly the enemy of the people,” including 34% who Strongly Agree. Thirty-six percent (36%) don’t agree, including 23% who Strongly Disagree.

Three questions were asked of poll participants:

  1. Do you trust the political news you are getting?
  2. How serious of a problem is “fake news” in the media?
  3. Do you agree or disagree with this statement: The media are “truly the enemy of the people”?

The wording of the third question echoed Trump’s 2019 tweet in which he said “Fake News is truly the ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!”

Here’s how the entirety of the poll results broke down, as Newsmax reports:

  • 76% of Republicans agree with the “enemy of the people” phrase in describing the media.
  • 37% of Democrats agree with the phrase.
  • 61% of independents agree with the phrase.
  • 83% of voters believe “fake news” is a serious problem in the media, compared to 14% who disagree.
  • 92% of Republicans believe “fake news” is a serious problem, compared to 74% of Democrats. 82% of independents believe it to be a serious problem.
  • 37% say they trust the political news they’re getting, compared to 43% who don’t trust it. 20% are not sure.
  • 54% believe that most reporters who write or talk about President Joe Biden are attempting to help him pass his agenda.

Supermajorities of Republicans and Independents agree with the “enemy of the people phrase.” A significant minority of Democrats agree. A huge chunk of the population, >80%, views fake news as a problem. Many view the political news as untrustworthy and think reporters are trying to help Biden rather than report on the news.

Though the poll was conducted in July of 2021, it’s unlikely the news for the news has gotten much better, as the trend has been toward a more and more negative view of the media.

For example, a 2020 Knight and Gallup poll found that “only 20% of Democrats have an unfavorable view [of the media], and 66% say that attacks are not justified.” That number had gone up by at least 17% by the time of the Rasmussen poll, where 37% of Democrats agreed with the “enemy of the people” phrase, showing a strong trend toward distrust of the media.

That trend has likely only accelerated as more and more media narratives have proven false, namely its slanderous lies about Kyle Rittenhouse and false reporting on the Steele dossier. As Lara Trump recently told Fox:

This is nothing new for the mainstream media. In fact, they’ve been trying to tell us what they want us to hear and not the truth for quite some time now. And people have finally started to wake up in America and say, ‘Wait a minute, I don’t think I’ve been getting the facts from these quote-unquote journalists out there,’ because that’s not what they are at all. A lot of these people consider themselves to be political activists, and they disguise themselves as journalists. But I think it’s why you see the distrust in the media at an all-time high in our country right now because you haven’t been able to get the facts about a lot of things. They’ve been pushing a certain narrative for so long.

Noting the trend, Rasmussen reported on November 12th that a full 53% of the American populace now doesn’t trust the political news they’re getting. That’s up 10% from the July survey, a massive increase in the space of a few months. So, Americans’ view of the media is getting worse and worse as its narratives are proven false.
