Something odd is going down with America’s bridges. From an outsider’s perspective, it’s hard not to wonder if there’s a deliberate attempt to target our bridges, or if we’ve just hit a peak in incompetence thanks to the “DEI” mindset, or maybe our infrastructure is just falling apart right in front of us.

We’ve been keeping tabs on the sorry state of America’s infrastructure for years.


Infrastructure has been a popular cause on the right since Donald Trump’s presidential run began six years ago, and for good reason. If President Trump had started his first term with a massive bipartisan infrastructure project that included the Wall rather than following GOP hack Paul Ryan’s tax cut agenda, the country would almost certainly be better off. Spending money to develop America and improve the lives of citizens is a much better use of the country’s wealth than fighting forever wars in the Hindu Kush or simply keeping half the country on the dole in one form or another.

But there needs to be a degree of realism as well. In the country America has become, it’s never as simple as just spending money on infrastructure instead of warfare and welfare. Without truly ambitious, far-reaching reforms and a competent, non-corrupt leadership class to implement them, infrastructure is either a spoils system for special interest clients or simply an expensive effort to maintain a crumbling status quo.

Could it be a mix of all three? Whatever it is, with three bridge-related incidents in just the last week, it’s got a lot of Americans paying attention and asking themselves, “What the heck is happening?” Naturally, the powers that be are quick to tell us to look away, assuring us lightning-fast that everything is fine and it’s all just one big coincidence, and if you dare to question anything you see, you’re labeled a tin-foil conspiracy freak.

Sadly, we all saw what happened to the bridge in Baltimore.

Shortly after, there was this “spontaneous” fire that just happened to break out under a bridge in Ohio. Just a coincidence, right, folks? Don’t you dare worry about it or question anything.

And now, a barge just struck another bridge, this time in Oklahoma on the Arkansas River, where the bridge pillar and the cargo ship were damaged. Again, it’s purely a coincidence; there’s nothing to see here.


The U.S. 59 Bridge was Struck by a Barge over the Arkansas River

• The Oklahoma Highway Patrol responded to Sequoyah County after a barge hit a bridge near the Kerr Lock & Dam in Sallisaw, Oklahoma

• US-59 was shut down for a time while investigators responded and inspected the condition of the bridge.

• ODOT says engineers inspected the bridge and declared it safe for travel. The highway has since reopened.

• That channel the barge was traveling through will remain closed until the winds slow down for the beams to be removed from the river, authorities said.

Fox News:

A large barge hit a bridge over the Arkansas River in Oklahoma prompting a nearby major highway to temporarily close Saturday, the highway patrol said.

According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, the barge rammed into the bridge near the Kerr Lock & Dam on Saturday afternoon.

Troopers closed South U.S. Highway 59 about 1:25 p.m. after receiving word of the incident and diverted traffic from the area, state patrol spokesperson Sarah Stewart said.

There were no reports of injuries on the highway or the barge, Stewart said.

It was not immediately known what caused the barge to hit the bridge.

But, of course, they’re quick to assure us that everything is just fine and we’re not under any sort of attack. At this point, it’s a choice between taking the “experts” word for it or trusting what you see with your own eyes.

Your choice.

If you’ve been watching closely, these bridge incidents are starting to feel a lot like the recent wave of train derailments and those food manufacturing plants that were catching fire all over the place. It was like someone decided to have a massive barbecue and forgot to invite us.

Something’s off; there’s no doubt about it. Now, we’re not here to spread baseless claims, but trusting what you see and hear yourself has its strong points. Think about it—if folks had been more skeptical of the “experts” during the whole COVID mess, we might have come out the other side in much better shape.
