Here Are the Demands of Truckers for the Constitution

Doswell, Va. – Zeeda Andrews of Truckers for the Constitution just gave press a list of five demands that the group plans to deliver to Representative Louie Gohmert (R., Texas). The document begins by suggesting that “Barry Soetoro, aka Barack Obama” is ineligible to be president because “his documents” are “forgeries”. Here’s that paragraph:

From 2003 to 2008, several members of Congress introduced legislation, attempting to change Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the Constitution on eight separate occasions to make it possible for Barack Obama to meet the eligibility requirements for the office of president. Of which, a legal investigation has proven that his documents provided are forgeries, which is a felony offense. 

The document then says that President Obama, “with the help of corrupt politicians, and individuals in authoritative positions” is working to eliminate the rights protected in the Constitution. “Today, we again face another day in which we must declare our freedom, from yet another tyrannical, abusive form of government,” the document reads. ”We are here, to send a resounding affirmation. We are here, to breathe life back into our Constitution. We are here, to declare our independence.”

It continues with criticism of the National Defense Authorization Act, the Affordable Care Act, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Transportation Security Administration. It also says the White House is violating the War Powers Act. 

The document’s discussion of the Department of Homeland Security goes as follows: 

The Department of Homeland Security is a non-military security force, which is violating the Constitution by using tax money to build a standing army, on American soil, training to engage with the American People. 

And after charging that the administration is violating the War Powers Act, the document says this:

They have illegally put our military in a “War Zone” where they currently, guard opium productions and transport, police the people of other countries based on US law, they get authorization for military action from the United Nations Security Counsel, which is High Treason, and they are exposing, and administering experimental, psychotropic, mind altering drugs for control over soldiers during secret, clandestine operations. 

Gohmert’s office hasn’t confirmed that he will receive this document from the truckers. Organizers with Truckers for the Constitution tell me their group plans to meet with several members of Congress at the World War II memorial this morning.
