Operation American Spring – The Revolution Begins?

While main stream news media snickers and looks the other way, a group of militia members bent upon closing down Washington, DC, will converge upon the Capitol city Friday to mark the beginning of their efforts to overthrow the government as it stands today.

Operation American Spring, the brain child of retired US Army Colonel Harry Riley, has as it’s mission the restoration of the Constitution of the United States of America and the ouster of Barack Obama, Joe  Biden, Harry Reid, John Boehner, Attorney General Eric Holder, Nancy Pelosi….and the list goes on to include all elected officials the group believes to have failed to live up to their oaths of office.

“We are calling for [their] removal … as a start toward constitutional restoration,” said retired Army Col. Harry Riley, the leader of the group. “They have all abandoned the U.S. Constitution, are unworthy to be retained in a position that calls for servant status.”

OAS leaders expect the protest to bring together from 10 to 30 million patriots who are fed up with the current leadership of the nation. While the group believes that the governmental machinery is sound and solid, they call the leadership corrupt. According to the group’s website, the group will replace current leaders in Washington with: “Those with the principles of a West, Cruz, Dr. Ben Carson, Lee, DeMint, Paul, Gov Walker, Sessions, Gowdy, Jordan.”

While the group is made up of militia members and military veterans from across the country, some of whom were there during the Cliven Bundy/BLM brouhaha last month in Nevada, the leadership plans a non-violent version of the Arab Spring in 2010 that ultimately led to the fall from power of Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak. The group insists that all attendees to pledge to keep the event an ‘…unarmed, non-violent, and peaceful presence by patriotic Americans…’

Non-violence notwithstanding, the protest has the support of  retired Gen. Paul Vallely, (a military expert often asked to opine on Fox News,) who told an Arizona Tea Party group in December  that if he were  called to lead a coup, he would do so. Vallele said, “If I got a call from a man who said, ‘If I give you 250,000 Marines to go to Washington, will you lead them?” to which he responded, ‘Yes, I will, I’ll surround the White House and I’ll surround the Capitol building, but it’s going to take physical presence to do things.”

Vallele, whose willingness to lead a military takeover of the U.S. might earn him the badge of traitor in the eyes of some, further stated, “I don’t want to be criticized for starting a revolution, but I’d certainly head it if we had to. We all love a good fight if it’s worth it, right?”

“For more than five years, ‘we the people’ have been writing, calling, faxing Congress, the media,  screaming in town halls, marching, rallying, demonstrating, petitioning, all to no avail,” Riley said in a  Raw Story report. “Every branch of government looks at ‘we the people’ whom they have taken an oath to serve, as ‘pests,’ interfering with their political agenda, cramping their self-serving, greedy agendas. We have  no faith in the ballot box any longer, as many believe this sacred secret box has been compromised.”

While protesters plan to remain in the Capitol until such time as their revolution is complete, ala the Occupy movement, others pooh-pooh the effort as another soon-to-be failure to bring change to government. The American Spring may, indeed, fail as did last year’s attempts by “millions” of bikers and conclaves of semi-trucks. It’s also possible that these committed men and women will be a catalyst for the revolution predicted by many.

    RE: Operation American Spring (O.A.S.) Warning


    The militias within these United States can not support a mission
    such as Operation American Spring, which by design and art of words, is a
    call of sedition with the purpose to lead patriots into illegal acts of
    insurrection against the people of this nation. Furthermore, any groups
    or individuals claiming to be militia within these United States with
    any plan to remove an elected official through the threat of a mob,
    based on the principles of mass and/or unconstitutional tribunal, would
    be doing so in a rogue manner, counter to the compact of our
    Constitution and may be considered an enemy of the people, for which no
    support or comfort could be lawfully provided by the militias of this

    Individuals with plans to visit Washington, D.C. in May of 2014 may
    wish to reconsider and are advised to keep a safe distance from any
    groups or individuals identifying themselves as part of Operation
    American Spring and obey any dispersal order by law enforcement.
    Individuals may be well advised to refrain from the wearing of any
    militia related patches, camouflage clothing or military uniform, having
    possession of any firearm, or making any declarative statements
    regarding membership or affiliation with any militia group while
    traveling to and from or in and around the District of Columbia and the
    States of nearby Maryland and Virginia.

    “No matter the level of our satisfaction with an elected government,
    it is our responsibility to correct that situation collectively through a
    process that ensures our equal representations. The true form of a
    patriot is one who shall stand against violations of the compact we live
    under, on the ground under their very feet, moving not to the call of
    any action which would violate it.”

    -Robert Kluver, President
    American Militia Association

      0bama Must Be Arrested as a Terrorist to “We the People’ and Our Beloved Constitution for charges including Treason, Espionage, Sedition and Fraud.

      A coup d’état has already happened when Our Legislative branch, Our Judicial branch, and Our Military let the Usurper 0bama and his gang take over Our Executive branch.

      Stand by your oath……………The oath is simple and reads:

      “I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same, that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

      Our Military have been following Illegal Orders by an Illegal Commander-in-Chief.

      “Never give an order that can’t be obeyed.” – Douglas MacArthur

      0bama and many enablers have committed Treason against U.S. and Our Beloved Constitution.

      Our Beloved Constitution solves ALL of our problems and must be Enforced, Respected and Restored.

      0bama Must Be Arrested as a Terrorist to “We the People’ and Our Beloved Constitution for charges including Treason, Espionage, Sedition and Fraud.

      A Traitor’s signature is Null and Void on ALL Executive Orders, Legislature, Treaties, Laws, and Appointments.

      The biggest enemy of America is already within!

      Article 2 Section 1 Clause 5 of the Constitution of the United States says:

      “No Person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President;”

      “Enough, already! Let’s start talking treason, prison, and death penalties for all malefactors in government who subvert, ignore, skirt and otherwise trash the Constitution of these United States of America. Those who have sworn to uphold the Constitution and have then ignored their oaths of office are guilty of perjury and malfeasance in office.” –Stephen A. Langford (Amherst College, 1963; personal 19 June 2009 communication to this author; by permission)

      Dear Mr. Robert Kluver, President of the American Militia Association:

      Apparently you don’t know much about the militia movement, because the things you say militias never do are exactly what they have been threatening us with for the last several decades.

      Your movement was dealt one more huge humiliation today, so of course, you are going to claim that you don’t have a thing to do with your associates of yesterday. Think anyone (other than your own members) is stupid enough to buy that?

          May 17, 2014 at 8:25 pm

          But Rob, this march got just about exactly as many attendees as the last one, led by Larry Klayman; and the two before that were very much the same sort of failure. Don’t you think it’s about time that you face the fact that your “movement” really consists of a pitifully small number of people and that as upset as many Americans are at the direction the country is taking, they don’t blame it on the black guy in the White House, but on the rich vultures like the Koch brothers and the hedge fund managers like Mitt Romney who are, in fact, the major financiers of the tea party?

          • Rob

            May 18, 2014 at 9:23 am

            First off, the militia is not a movement. The militia is not about any political party or ideology and its definitely not about race, ethnicity or religion. Many exploit the term for their own use. The militia is simply every able bodied American having a moral and legal obligation to defend our nation from all enemies, foreign and domestic, which are completely under the control of civil authority. The problem is that the media and bloggers incorrectly permit rogue organizations and individuals to represent themselves as ‘militia’ without correction. The militia therefore did not support Klayman, Riley or even Bundy. If you are an American, and you have not been explicitly exempted, you are a member of the militia. However, just because you are a member, you do not have any authority to go marching down to DC and demanding folks out of office.

          • GreenEagle

            May 18, 2014 at 4:41 pm

            “First off, the militia is not a movement. The militia is not about any political party or ideology and its definitely not about race, ethnicity or religion.”

            Rob, really, do you have the faintest clue about the history of the so-called Militias in this country?

            It is a movement, it is about one specific ideology, and it is most definitely about race, ethnicity and religion. To deny that is to display complete ignorance of the origins and growth of the militias.

            And no, I’m not going to try to straighten you out. The information is there for anyone to read.. I suggest you start with the voluminous records documenting the history of the militias at the Southern Poverty Research Center website.

            ” If you are an American, and you have not been explicitly exempted, you are a member of the militia.”

            This is just one more lunatic misinterpretation of the Constitution from the right wing. It is completely false.

            And militias didn’t support Bundy? Just how deranged are you?

          • Rob

            May 19, 2014 at 7:57 am

            Well I am not resorting to any sort of implied name calling, and the facts are indeed the facts and the laws are the laws.

            Title 10 U.S. Code § 311 – Militia: composition and classes:

            I will not argue with you regarding the history portrayed by the ADL and SPLC including their libelous defamation of particular individuals. These are not exactly sources which are free from ideologies of their own on the subject.

            What some groups say and do in the name of the militia does not change its meaning or its purpose in the Constitution and under law.
