How to Prepare for the American Freedom Convoy Based on What’s Happened in Canada

Canadian Trucker Convoy

As we’ve seen time and time again, history repeats itself. By understanding these patterns, you can predict the future and prepare accordingly. And based on what’s happening in Canada right now, we need to prepare for the American Freedom Convoy because fallout is almost guaranteed.

Here’s an example of what I mean by predictability. Back when the Covid outbreak was just beginning to gain a foothold, I wrote articles about the patterns demonstrated in other countries that were ahead of us in infections, particularly China and Italy. Now, obviously, we never have all the information so I was only able to use what was made public. Still, a very distinct pattern emerged and I predicted with reasonable accuracy when the lockdown of the US would begin and how long it was likely to last. Many people scoffed and that’s absolutely fine – it’s part of thinking critically. However, by identifying the patterns of what was happening elsewhere, it wasn’t difficult to guess how things would go down here.

Predicting something based on patterns is not like predicting something based on a crystal ball. You’re just going with Occam’s Razor – the most likely thing is probably the answer instead of some exotic diversion from the norm.

What we can learn from the Canadian Freedom Convoy

The Freedom Convoy is an epic rebellion taking place in Canada, a country where most folks are mellow and would rather have a smoke and a Tim Horton’s double-double than argue politics. It’s certainly not a hotbed of violent protests like the ones in the United States.

The Convoy has been mostly peaceful, at least on the part of the protestors, but adamant. These truck drivers are standing firm as the tyranny against them grows by the day.

Remember, in both Canada and the United States, protesting is a protected right of every citizen. Both the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the US Constitution allow for peaceful assembly and freedom of speech. Cracking down on these peaceful protestors is a violation of the founding documents of their country.

Here’s how Canada is “handling” the situation.

The Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, is, in my opinion, a weak leader. (Sound familiar?) When the convoy arrived at the capitol, Trudeau was nowhere to be found. Since then, here are some of the things he has ordered to try and make the Convoy leave.

  • He had police officers steal their gasoline and food.
  • He had their kitchen dismantled.
  • He has propagandized them, painting them as “swastika wavers,” to try and sway public opinion.
  • Media coverage has been limited and biased within Canada, but other countries have covered it widely and have applauded the truckers for their professional behavior.
  • Go Fund Me seized their donations.

And then he got nasty. He invoked The Emergencies Act, which is pure tyranny and de facto martial law, granting him the power to take all manner of actions in violation of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. It’s basically a state of war against those who dare to question his mandates.

  • He is freezing the corporate accounts of participants.
  • He is suspending the vehicle insurance of participants, making it illegal for them to drive.
  • He sent in heavily armed forces to arrest those on the Ambassador Bridge and tow their vehicles.

But it’s not just the truckers he’s going after. Ordinary people who support the movement are being financially targeted and labeled as terrorists.

  • Anyone making a donation of any type to the Convoy may have their bank accounts frozen.
  • They will be considered “terrorists.”
  • Donors have been doxxed, with their names made public.

Last night, Canadians talked about pulling their money out of the banks. Today, mysteriously, the bank websites are down.

This is in response to a truly peaceful protest. Imagine what’s going to happen when those Canadians up the ante.

How can we use this information to prepare for the American Freedom Convoy?

Currently, Freedom Convoys are organizing around the world, including in the United States, so it’s important to watch what’s happening in Canada right now and prepare accordingly. We can predict what the responses might be here based on what is happening there. We can be guaranteed that President Biden is taking notes on Trudeau’s actions (albeit in crayon) and considering taking those same actions here, perhaps pre-emptively.

These are my suggestions. Many of them are relevant whether you are pro-Freedom Convoy or anti-Freedom convoy. We’re all going to feel the effects.

  1. Prepare for greater supply chain issues. Get a month ahead on medications, food, and other essentials. If you think the shelves are bare now, just wait until the trucks stop moving.  For advice on building your food supply, check out our free Quickstart guide.
  2. Get some cash out of the bank. Instead of waiting for everyone to announce a bank run, be proactive and get as much cash on hand as possible.
  3. Expect the rules to change. The situation changed rapidly in Canada and a rarely invoked law was brought back to allow unconstitutional punishment of those going against the government. We could experience martial law, suspension of the Posse Comitatus Act, unconstitutional executive orders allowing for asset seizure, and other punishments to shut down the dissent. This is not a case of “if you aren’t doing anything wrong, you have nothing to worry about.” Those types of actions will affect all Americans.
  4. If you plan to participate in the convoy, protect your supplies. Lock up extra food and gas and consider a locking fuel cap. You don’t want to end up in a battle with the police, so make sure your supplies are not easily accessible to just be seized.
  5. Decide where you stand. If you are on the fence, you need to decide where your allegiances lie. I recommend keeping that information to yourself if possible because sentiments are heated enough in the US. At the same time, be aware that if you donate, support, or participate it’s entirely likely you will be “outed” so make sure.
  6. Be prepared for the consequences of your actions. Whatever you opt to do is up to you. But note that the demonstrators from January 6th were prosecuted and tracked down in a very different matter than demonstrators in Portland and Seattle. If you feel compelled to participate, I’m certainly not here to discourage you, but I want you to be aware that you could face some unpleasant consequences, and only you can decide if that is something you’re prepared to do. If you go against the current administration, it’s entirely likely you’ll be considered a terrorist. (If you’re not already.)

Will an American Freedom Convoy be successful?

Multiple Freedom Convoys are organizing in the United States right now. Preparations are underway for the unwanted descent of the trucks.

On Friday, the White House press secretary, Jen Psaki, said the Department of Homeland Security is actively monitoring the possibility of a Washington-bound convoy.

“They’re taking all necessary steps to ensure that the convoy does not disrupt lawful trade and transportation or interfere with federal government and law enforcement operations,” Psaki said. (source)

The plans are for the convoys to reach Washington DC around March 6th. You can be sure that our government will try very hard to prevent that from happening.

March looks like it will be an interesting month.

What are your thoughts?

Do you think the US will follow Canada’s playbook? Are you for or against the idea of the convoy? Let’s discuss it in the comments.

  1. I am making $150 every hour by working on the web at home. A month ago I have gotten $19723 from this activity. This activity is exceptionally astounding and its normal income for me is superior to anything my past office work. This activity is for all and everyone can without much of a stretch join this correct now by utilize this link. Copy Here…… https://netjobsoffer1.blogspot.com/

  2. Our Second Amendment right exists to protect our First Amendment rights, and other things.
    Canadians don’t have a Second Amendment.
    They are virtually disarmed in the face of armed government violence against them.
    That’s probably why Trudeau feels safe in tyrannizing them.

  3. Demonstrations are interesting but have little effect on policy. Someone influential should organize and lead a general sick-out for a day or three, one involving truckers, delivery people, airline staff, medical personnel, grocery workers, police, everyone. That would work. The “organize and lead” part is important, because there must be a spokesman who can negotiate demands with the government.

    1. Farmers need to get together and refuse to plant or sell their product. My 100 acres won’t mean much, but 10,000 of us could begin to make a dent.

  4. It is the year of the Tiger….year of courage. With the polorized climate we are in, I suspect this could lead to some serious fights but not sure about war. The government is going to attempt to stomp this thing out quickly. It all depends on the citizens to back them up. If we back them up, the truckers can win. If we don’t, they will fail miserably just like the J6 prisoners.

    My suggestion for anybody protesting: eliminate all possible ways for the government to identify you. Sounds odd to wear a mask to protest mandates to wear a mask, but this time, I suggest you wear a mask to protect your identity, not your health.

    Don’t use cellphones in DC, use video cameras. Don’t drive into DC, drive to VA and take a bus into DC. Take a change of clothes to make it more difficult for them to track you. Don’t wear anything unusual, try to blend in. It would be great if everybody wore the Antifa uniform so we can blame antifa and hide identities (aka…a reverse false flag).

    In other words, be smart. It will scare them more.

    1. All well-meaning but ultimately ineffective. Tyrants need to start dying. Elected tyrants. Unelected tyrants. Mask Karens. ZOG-bot pigs (“Back the Blue!” they cry.).

      Death to tyrants. Death to *all* tyrants.

  5. What they should do is not announce they’re coming and not travel in a huge convoy. Meet somewhere or on a chat and decide a meeting place in DC. Then everyone travels there at their own speed and timing. If they get stopped just tell the cops you have a pickup to make if you’re a tractor and you’re going to see the museums if you’re a car.

    At the time everyone converges at the meeting spot and they’ve been outflanked.

    Americans can be sneaky. We’re known for it in fact.

  6. “You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.”

    ― Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto

  7. This article was likely written or edited by one of the Globalist elite as it most clearly is a call to motivate people to stand down and live as slaves. I say a big FU to writer and this website. You are either false flag reporters or Conservative cowards. Either way, enemy of the people that love Liberty and America.

  8. I think copying the Freedom Convoy is a mistake.

    1) Who are the leaders?
    2) You’re being asked to REGISTER? Are you INSANE?!
    3) The FBI/CIA are MASTERS at infiltration, patsy creation and setting up False Flags. Unlike Canadians where some of their military/intel agencies seem to have some semblance of a conscious, our Deep State is beyond evil.
    4) This is going to result in national martial law.
    5) The better solution would be a massive TRUCKER strike. Followed by walkouts in every other industry. Pilots, Flight Attendants, Air Traffic, Toll Collectors, EMS, Police, Mass Transit, Garbage…you know…the Blue Collar jobs the Communists, er, Democrats look down upon. The “learn to code crew.”

    1. I think you are correct. And as an aside, using PayPal is insane. They are worse than Go Fund Me. They will withhold the money for sure. Washington DC is a trap. A nationwide strike would be so much more effective. And it wouldn’t put the Police in the situation of having to carry out unlawful orders. Which they should not do anyway. Nor the Military. If the Truckers had the Police & Military on their side it would be a complete different story.

  9. It’s YOU against a uniform making a paycheck. If the uniforms decide to pull the trigger on American citizens, then there’s no way to know how this will turn out; but it won’t be pretty. We have the second amendment for a reason.

  10. this will be a waste of time and money – can see an already established response

    a lot of planned mischief will be blamed on the truckers and then heavy handed

    responses – best to wait

  11. A convoy to to arrive in DC by March 1st, in time for JoeTard’s SOTU speech. Ten days doesn’t provide much time to organize. Organizers unfortunately spilled the beans to early. JoeTard is making progress on securing DC. Beware that his regime coordinated with the effeminate Nazi in Canada, giving him millions and access to the DHS. It’ll be interesting to see if cops will turn on peaceful IS protestors like they have in Canadastan.

  12. It sounds like it would be best to just shut the trucks down and watch TV. No fuel needed, no hassle with your bank account and no damaged vehicle. Sounds like the best play until the people scream at their politicians to drop the damn mandates forever.

  13. I would like to see the Canadian truckers just refuse to deliver goods . That is a type of protest If it gets as bad in the USA, the truckers should go on strike

  14. Trucking strikes do not work because you have a division between union companies who you know love Joe. And independents.
    Any time Independents strike, unions just keep working. When unions strike Independents keep working.
    The reason is neither strike for the same reasons.
    Unions-more money and benefits.Which benefits only union members.
    Independents-higher freight cost and lower fuel cost. Which benefits all truckers and companies.
    Do you really think Teamster companies will join?
