(Feb. 12, 2022) — A physician who has objected to the government’s COVID-19 response and been fired from his teaching position at University of California-Irvine due to a vaccine mandate told radio and television host Dan Bongino Saturday night that he sits on a committee currently organizing a “US convoy” similar to the truckers’ protests which unfolded in Canada more than two weeks ago.

Dr. Aaron Kheriaty, who reported threats on the part of public health authorities against physicians who provide mask and vaccine exemptions during the January 24 roundtable hosted by Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, told Bongino on his Saturday-evening show, “Unfiltered,” that the convoy is planned to launch on March 5 in California.

The following day, Kheriaty said, the convoy plans to begin an eastward trek “toward Washington, DC” which will be peaceful, as was the January 23 “Defeat the Mandates” protest at which Kheriaty and a number of other physicians, scientists and activists spoke outside the Lincoln Memorial protesting vaccine mandates and subsequent loss of employment.

Specializing in medical ethics and psychiatry, Kheriaty currently leads the bioethics programs at four organizations, including The Unity Project, which seeks to abolish vaccine mandates for schoolchildren, particularly in California.

Kheriaty announced the US truckers’ protest on his Substack on February 10. Its launch will be “epic,” he wrote, and the convoy “enormous.”

He concluded his blog post with, “I’ll be heading to Florida Monday for a long-form interview with Tucker Carlson, where I’ll discuss more details about the Defeat the Mandates CA event and truckers convoy. I’ll send that interview—along with some recent podcast interviews I did with Megyn Kelly, Laura Ingraham, and Kristi Leigh—in my next post.”

  1. People already had a negative viewpoint on truckers – don’t pay attention, hog lanes, drift in and out of lanes, don’t allow regular traffic to pass, other odd passing habits, road rage, fall asleep at the wheel, bad upkeep leaving pieces of tires on the highway, horrible exhaust and smoke, loose items falling, under the influence, jackknifing and so much more all mostly while working transporting goods for a company. And, the top 4 reasons given for KarenConvoy protesting are lame. #1. Oppose vaccine mandates – Way too late on this one. Over 85% of truckers are vaccinated and most states have now relaxed policies. #2. Gas prices – I would somewhat agree on this one but US Govt has nothing to do with this, it is pure corporate greed making prices on everything across the board a crime. #3. Critical Race Theory – Really!? We are in 2022 and your people still lack intelligence and social skills to get along with and be accepting of other people. You know it’s not the other way around. We don’t sit around talking about other people and how or why they shouldn’t exist. This is a matter of your personal level of maturity. #4. Sorry, can’t remember this one but it’s not necessary. It should be Exxon and Chevron to bring your trucks, it should be scientists you thank for nearly halting the pandemic and it should be all Americans that you accept and stand together with no matter their race, creed, religion or other shoes they walk in.

  2. God bless all Those that attend or support this Movement. I will say use caution in putting yourselves at risk to tyrannical mayors and district attorneys. Your goals can be easily be met by blocking highways and byways in to these leftist areas versus exposing yourself or your rigs the criminal dictators. Furthermore I feel the most impact can be made by having all
    Patriots simply refusing to deliver any goods or service to any metro area or
    Corporations who’s leaders have fired any workers due to illegal mandates. Let those that cause the problem to suffer.

  3. YEA! C’mon all you US sovereign patriots- let’s come out in mass &show the world not allAmericans are scared compliant apathetic idiots! Planning to bring my family to LA for the March 5-6 Kick off! But Need location to book lodging. And We want to be of ongoing assistance along the route, if at all possible! Please keep us posted of all new developments! PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD: This is the MOST IMPORTANT massive long term, large scale EPIC FREEDOM EVENT IN THE HISTORY OF US & WORLD in our lifetime, maybe EVER !!!

    1. I just read this on Dr. Kheriaty’s blog: “In light of these ominous developments, the US Truckers’ Convoy leadership decided they could not wait any longer to start their convoy from the West Coast to to the DC area. So they are now planning on departing next week on February 23. Since our Defeat the Mandates event in Coachella Valley, CA mentioned in my last post will not coincide with the Truckers’ departure, the California event has been postponed to allow more time to plan and organize it. Stay tuned here for more updates.”

  4. why not sell sponsorships to non woke businesses to help them financially with their trek across the U.S. . These are rolling billboards ! I’m sure plenty of patriotic businesses would be happy to help and have their logos on the sides of these trucks. Banners can be made for about $100.00 from Banners on the cheap. Good Luck and GODSPEED!!

  5. USA – Peoples Convoy game plan. Updated 2-14, 2022
    Suggestions that need to reach the truckers directly, their families, friends, trucking company owners and especially organizers of this convoy!

    This will be “peaceful” demonstration of Americans that wish to voice and demonstrate grievances with the Administration as to freedoms now being trampled on and denied to citizens and a two-tiered justice system, and other issues.

    The cost to truckers participating is not only lost wages and time away from family, but also the fuel and other costs to run just the rigs even without a trailer/box.

    Here is a vision that the worlds news medias need to show the public! – This is the, “PEOPLES” Convoy!

    1. All along the travel routes, signs posted for rally points at fueling stations for the “local citizens” to gather at the off ramps with kids, flags and “contributions” handed directly to the truckers to help fill their tanks— CUT OUT THE MIDDLE MEN, GIVE DIRECTLY TO THE DRIVERS!
    A. Video footage of children handing a dollar bill to individual drivers; adults a $5, $20 or more.
    B. Envelopes with notes showing the contributors, – Local schools by “class year”, “sports
    teams/programs”, employee groups from small and large local businesses with a THANK YOU card
    enclosed to be personally handed to drivers with donations.
    C. Every local organization and business separately pooling contributions to deliver directly to drivers.
    Cash or prepaid debit cards with a note of thanks for representing, us, the “PEOPLE” of this country!

    2. If you have any contacts into the legal profession, pass this along to the local individuals that can make this happen locally, in every county along the routes — We know the federal government and some local state governments will try to crush the movement with false claims of illegal, violent, terrorist, anti- American activity. We need the attorneys of every county on the routes to be organized and prepared to aid and assist the drivers as needed and bail money support. This is most critically needed within 50 miles of the final destination of Washington DC.

    3. There will be organized attempts to seed the activities with bad actors that will promote violence, property destruction and displays of flags and signs that are not the sentiments or values of this protest movement. The drivers, and every protester as a group, all adults together need to immediately peacefully confront and stop such activity. Be prepared, have a plan!

    4. Truckers need to provide game plan of communications to leave lanes open for emergency vehicles at all times.

    5. Drivers and supporting protestors need to be prepared for 3-4 weeks of food, fuel, shelter and other necessities for a long campout.

    6. All local residents in a 20-mile radius of DC need to understand that this movement will directly and
    substantially impact them, their families, businesses, schools, local commuting to work, shopping, and refueling their cars. Patriots prepare!! You are part of, and “essential” to the success of this entire effort! Tanker trucks need to replenish locals fuel, as well as the Convoy and supporting protestor vehicles.
    A. Locals; fill, to full, all of your vehicles fuel tanks 10 days prior to the anticipated arrival of the Convoy and continually
    top off when you get down to a ¾ full tank! This will give the fueling stations deliveries, time and ability to keep station
    storage tanks full by the time the Convoy and supporter arrive.
    B. 14 days prior to the Convoys anticipated arrival shop for a 30-day supply of food and necessities so
    stores can be restocked prior to arrival date!

    7. All Americans across the US, be ready to do your part! We all will face shortages of all the items the trucking industry transport every day to supply or stores and shops. Business’s will have hardship with inventory and lack of sales. We all need to endure this to demonstrate to the Administration the power of the “people” to unit and stand together from our truly national melting pot of the world’s cultures.

    Please pass this along to “local” organizers that can assist, and also to, individuals, organizations, and businesses that can make this happen! – We all need stand together united! – Needs to go viral! – Patriots all !

  7. I live in middle Tennesee and want very much to be a part of the “Truckers Convoy”. I am not a trucker but want to ride along with great patriotic, peaceful protest. Any information regarding this is appreciated.
