Top O’ the Briefing
Happy Monday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. Ketzlebn felt that his preference for Pac-Man-shaped pierogi and faux leather finery kept just the right amount of mystery swirling about him.
In the early days of my stand-up career, I drove to every gig, no matter where it was in the continental United States. I quickly learned to follow the leads of truckers in my road warrior phase. They knew the best places to eat. They knew where the best rest areas to sleep at were. I preferred to do most of my driving at night, so I would fall in with a bunch of trucks who seemed to be making good time and let them be my radar detectors. I gained a lasting appreciation for the men and women who make things magically appear at our stores.
The world is now polluted with elitists and — worse yet — elitist wannabes, many of whom were empowered by the tyrannical madness of the COVID-19 pandemic. Thankfully, truckers remain salt of the earth people and, put mildly, have no use for the nonsense of rampaging leftism.
We first saw truckers flex their might during the Freedom Convoy in Canada in 2022, which so panicked soy boy Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that he immediately exposed the worst of his fascist tendencies.
I was surprised to find not one, but two, trucker stories as I returned from my weekend news hiatus. The first one is from Kevin:
American news media hasn’t mentioned this much, but French farmers have been protesting over escalating diesel fuel taxes and the introduction of cheaper food from Latin America, which they see as a one-two punch to drive them out of the farming industry and compel them to sell their land, most likely to the French government.
Food from Ukraine is currently duty-free and is also a threat to French farmers’ profits. The French government is also trying to drive prices down at the supermarkets. French farmers see all of this as an existential threat to their livelihoods.
Thousands of tractors have clogged French highways. Tires and hay bales have been stacked up in streets to cause barricades.
Our friends the truckers have joined the fight, per this tweet from Kevin’s post:
🚨 France is in full Revolt against the globalists.
French farmers have had enough.
Truckers and construction workers join the farmers to stand against Macron & his net zero globalist policies.

It is truly a thing of beauty to see the people responsible for the important things in life like, you know, food, saying, “ENOUGH,” no matter what language. While it’s fun to do the resistance thing with my mouth or my keyboard, but I can’t blockade anything, no matter how much weight I’ve put on in the last few years.
Effective resistance comes from the people who can hit the critical pressure points and hit them hard. Even the globalist New World Order tools who want to ruin our lives aren’t getting their food airdropped to them; they need trucks and trains like the rest of us.
Another story which Kevin mentions quickly at the end of his article was covered more in-depth by my colleague Karen Townsend at HotAir:
A trucker convoy is heading to three border states. The truckers want to call attention to the catastrophe at the southern border.
The group calls itself “God’s Army” and the organizers of the “Take Our Border Back” convoy are on a mission. They want to stand up against globalists they claim are behind the open southern border that allows illegal immigrants to cross the border from Mexico.
The plan is for the truckers to leave Monday from Virginia Beach, Virginia. They will drive through the southeast. Stops will be made in Florida and Louisiana before they arrive in Texas. Three rallies are planned on February 3 in Eagle Pass, Texas, Yuma, Arizona, and San Ysidro, California. Organizers see this as a good versus evil fight. One professor of sociology told liberal publication, Vice, that there is concern the situation may escalate.
That last line is a real laugher. Yeah, Professor Che, the real problem with our southern border being flooded with God knows how many dangerous criminals who are being fed and housed on the American taxpayer’s dime is that some truckers are going to do some protest rallies.
Burn down Academia.
What the lefties really worry about in situations like this is that the photo ops that will be generated won’t be flattering to the drooling idiot in the White House who created the problem.
The Democrats have gotten away with an “out of sight, out of mind” approach to the border for a very long time. That’s all been blown up by Republican governors who shipped off some illegal immigrants to bleeding heart sanctuary cities. They’re so used to lying about Biden’s border nightmare that many of them no doubt think that they can still get away with it.
If no uppity regular folks get in the way, that is.
Good job, truckers of the world. Here’s to stirring it up even more in 2024.
Meanwhile, only six more weeks of January.
