If he paid for the use of the truck, can they legally do that? I'd file a law suit so fast their head would spin.

Be sure to note this in The Penske File... I would think using their rental trucks to transport illegals and drugs would be reason's to disable the truck, but transporting sign's to a perfectly legal protest supposedly protected by the 1st Amendment? Does Penske have approve the contents before the truck is rented? If that is not stated in the rental contract how would they justify their actions?

I doubt that Roger himself is still involved in the business #2. He is something like 84 and doesn't strike me as "woke". It's the younger corporate execs that come out of college with their heads packed with left wing sh...stuff that are infesting corporations with virtue signalling nonsense.

#1 #3 #6 #8 Contracts like this have a catch all that says renter agrees to not behave in a way that is detrimental to the renting company. Penske Corp's name is on the truck. It isn't about the contents of the truck. We probably will never know if it were BLM would it be different. I would tend to think it would be treated similarly. It isn't a First Amendment issue. Private companies can control speech around their product. Penske in his mid 80s is still very active. My guess is that the decision to stop the truck went to him for approval. Likely they have a broad policy of the company and employees not engaging in any political activity that may alienate a customer. In this case from his view, damage control forced actions that some will view negatively. Also, one of his son's is CEO of the company that publishes Rolling Stone magazine. He doesn't promote his last name.

Ok, so The Penske Corporation doesn’t support freedom. But taking action to silence an American Citizen's 1st Amendment Right to Free Speech is a different thing. No one implied Penske was making a statement. Does Nike get to disable the shoes of anyone making a speech they disagree with? Can any auto manufacturer legally do this?

I don't think the company wants its assets used to carry bombs to blow up buildings, or carry truckers without trucks to block roads with a rental truck they don't care about. So I understand the company wants its trucks used for moving stuff, not other purposes.

From my past life, Penske is a force to be reckoned with... 85 or not. He's a hellion in business and it's his way or the highway. From Wikipedia: Penske endorsed Donald Trump in the 2020 United States presidential election. Had this driver covered up ALL references to Penske, perhaps they would have had no reason for this remote kill switch to be activated?

I believe that corporate America is going to regret this communist leaning tactic of hitting the average American's ability to express their First Amendment Right's. I suggest that anyone that has reserved a Penske truck or van to cancel the reservation, now. We can do without Penske, but Penske can't do without us. There are way more of us, then there is of them. If it were me, I'd make sure that any Penske vehicle seen unmanned be rendered inoperable anyway you can. Do they have fire insurance? Does Penske have "Karo Sirup" in the gas tank insurance? Maybe one of us should find out. I've rented dozens of Penske trucks and vans over the years, but I will never rent or purchase anything from Penske ever again. And I think that NASCAR should pull all advertising of Penske products off of the cars in the race. If you can't have FJB logo on your car because it might upset some panty waist liberal. So should the Penske name be forever linked to the FJB and the cancel culture of the left. So from here on, let's not call it Penske, but FPT. MSgt USAF (ret)

Ukraine is a highly devout country – about 87% of its 41 million citizens practice Christianity. So it's notable that, to many Ukrainians, Mary Magdalene now has a new moniker: St. Javelin.The viral meme (shown above) recasting the "Apostle of the apostles" is in reverence to a device that knows no religion: the FGM-148 Javelin portable fire-and-forget anti-tank missile. Since the start of Putin's dastardly invasion of Ukraine, Ukrainian freedom fighters have extensively utilized the American-made weapon system – co-produced by Lockheed Martin and Raytheon – to rain destruction down upon the Russian military's armored vehicles. Ukraine's Defense Ministry estimates that 102 tanks and 536 armored vehicles had been destroyed

We’ve written often at this site about Chuck Todd and about his colleague Andrea Mitchell a time or two as well, and it never fails to amaze me how both of them continue to believe that as long as they keep saying journalists aren’t liberally biased people will believe them.In this writer’s view, the receipts are pretty substantial if not overwhelming that journalists do indeed harbor a left-wing bias. For starters, pretty much every poll that has been taken over the last decade on media contributions to politicians shows that the vast majority of journalists contribute either to Democrats or Democrat causes.

As the midterm 2022 elections approach, the expectation is that, with thirty Democrat House retirements and the continued unraveling of the Biden Administration, the Dems are about to experience historic losses in both the House and Senate. However, the evil geniuses within the Democrat party have identified the Fourteenth Amendment as a vehicle to thwart Republican dreams of achieving a massive political realignment. Therefore, it may be shortsighted to count the one-time party of Jefferson as down-and-out until the last glimmering frenzy has been extinguished. In 1868, the Fourteenth Amendment was amended to add Section 3, also known as the Disqualification Clause.

I’m having a problem using the president’s formal title and name together. It’s not a matter of Republican disrespect for a Democrat. I referred to both Barack Obama and Bill Clinton by their presidential titles. It’s a matter of legitimacy. Over half of all Americans now believe that fraud affected the outcome of the last Presidential election. The Arizona election audit didn’t prove that the Donald won, as many hoped. But it did prove that we don’t really know who won that state. Given the election shenanigans around the country in November 2020, there is certainly justification to question the outcome.
