– ‘Death Knell’ For American Truck Driver Could ‘Shut Down America Within Days Or Overnight’!
Back on June 24th, ANP reported upon what ANP reader James Grubbs called ‘the most alarming SQAlert he had read in years’, a warning from a trucker in America about a mandate beginning in December of 2017 that would require all commercial truckers to use ELD’s, electronic logging devices.
Claiming that trucking as a whole in America was a total mess but it was about to get a whole lot worse, we were warned that such ELD mandates would establish a dictatorial control grid over all ‘over the road trucking’, monitored in real time, and that such control was absolutely ripe for abuse.
As we hear in the final video below, for the past year+, ELD mandates have been the talk of the entire trucking industry with many warning they’ll be the ‘death knell of American trucking’ as our videographer expands upon in that video.
After receiving an email about our June 24th story from an ANP reader who was also a trucker, Susan Duclos published a story on July 4th titled “This Black Swan Event Is Happening Now And Will ‘Bring This Country To A Halt'” in which she reported that many truckers may decide to retire rather than living under a ‘dictatorial control grid’ in their jobs with our reader warning us:
All of this will result in stortages at every level. Gas stations, groceries, medical, and so on. This will in itself cause price inflation across the spectrum. Now with the lack of available trucks to move all the freight, many loads will sit idle. This will cause many industries to run into supply problems, exacerbate the problem even further. Not to mention the increase in rates for trucks as the battle among shippers to get their loads moved, and the highest bidder wins, causes even more price increases.
As our reader also warned us then, while a petition to the US Supreme Court brought by the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association to overturn mandatory ELD’s was denied, truckers would be organizing in October.
And as we’ve just learned from a very well-trusted ANP source, as it appears that mandatory ELD’s will soon become the law of the land in America with the Supreme Court denial, a massive trucking strike or shutdown may soon happen nationwide, possibly beginning within weeks.
And as anybody paying attention knows, such a shutdown of our trucking system could ‘shut down America’ within days if not overnight.
As we see in the alarming and eye-opening graphic further down in this story, should suddenly and without warning the trucks stop delivering their supplies, within 24 hours, hospitals would run out of basic medical supplies, service stations would run out of fuel and food shortages would begin to develop.
Within 2 to 3 days, ATM’s would run out of cash, garbage would begin piling up across the nation as fuel shortages prevent service industries such as garbage collection from operating, and supplies of water and canned meat would disappear as major retailers are no longer resupplied with food shortages escalating as the public begins mass panic.
With things only going downhill from there, within a week automobile travel would virtually cease due to no fuel being resupplied to gas stations with the nations clean water supply starting to run dry and completely used up by the 4th week.
How many people reading this are prepared to go more than just a few days should the trucks stop running?
While we’d expect a higher percentage of ANP readers to be prepared for such a scenario than the majority of our nation with a large number of ‘preppers’ among those who visit ANP, hurricanes Harvey and Irma have shown how quickly things can get out of control. With hurricane Maria’s wrath upon Puerto Rico showing us a worst-case scenario with most of the island torn apart and extreme difficulties getting new food, water and supplies on to the island due to the completely destroyed infrastructure.
