Operation American Spring: General & Colonel Call For a Massive March on Washington
Freedom Outpost ^ | January 4, 2014 | Suzanne Hamner

Posted on 01/05/2014 2:46:37 PM PST by Art in Idaho

Today started like any other day for me: take the “terrorist princess” outside, get a cup of coffee, and sit down to peruse the news while checking email. After seeing a news post about the Obama administration using two executive orders that will determine who in this country will or will not be allowed to purchase guns, I became infuriated and decided to turn to my email. Yesterday, I had received a tag about an interesting event scheduled for May 16, 2014; however, I had a hard time trying to fathom it so I began my research. Little did I know that this event is now spreading like wildfire – being talked about all over less known alternative media sites and some social network sites.

It is known as “Operation American Spring.” Released on December 20, 2013, at Patriots of America, this movement is being covered on the Daily Paul, the Conservative Monster, American Prepper Nation, American Liberty Riders, the Nutrifarm and the Birther Report to name a few. Here is the concept to “Operation American Spring” being put forth by Harry Riley:

Phase 1 – Field millions, as many as ten million, patriots who will assemble in a non-violent, physically unarmed (Spiritually/Constitutionally armed), display of unswerving loyalty to the US Constitution and against the incumbent government leadership, in Washington, D.C., with the mission to bring down the existing leadership. Go full-bore, no looking back, steadfast in the mission.

Phase 2 – One million or more of the assembled 10 million must be prepared to stay in D.C. as long as it takes to see Obama, Biden, Reid, McConnell, Boehner, Pelosi, and Attorney General Holder removed from office.

Sounds like a great idea and a march worth going to. Would be a great FReeper convention! Comments?

Phase II is unrealistic, unless all the people who would be likely to go don’t have jobs due to the policies of the current administration.

I admit it could happen...

He must be stopped. This Marxist must not be allowed to continue his destruction of the nation for another three years.

rlmorel:" Phase II is unrealistic, unless all the people who would be likely to go don’t have jobs due to the policies of the current administration.

Phase II is unrealistic ,at this time,as those in power would feel threatened by such a riseing of the people .
Such a revision of the Constitution , as proposed by Mark Levin, could submit a provision for Federal " RECALL" ,
as at present, there is no allowance for any Federal Government "RECALL " provision.
Also , it should be 'bi-partisian', as there are some Democrats who are still patriots , and feel abandoned by the current administration,
much the same as Republicans feel abandoned by their leadership.
This is an opportunity to draw all Americans to give notice to the FEDERAL Govt. that we, the American people, have had enough :
Enough of Lies !!
Enough of backdoor/clandestine agreements !!
Enough of supporting our enemies , and abandoning our allies !!,
Enough of spying on common citizens without 'probable cause'!!
Enough of extending citizenship to any 'occupant' in the United States without 'legally recognized due process',
Enough of 'occupants' receiving Federal benefits without making suitable contributions,
Enough of ignoring the rights of legal citizens as well as the Constitution to which they have sworn to defend.
Enough of investigating criminality by Federal Govt., and delay of prosecution, and criminal charges brought forth, including penalties and incarceration.

IF EGYPT can do it , so can we !!

I understand what you mean, but I don’t think there is a parallel with Egypt. (Having been there and seen how things are, it is no surprise to me that they could get millions of people to congregate in an area and stay there.)

Personally, I'd add Boehnor, McConnell, McCain and a few others to the list of those who have to be removed - they haven't been doing a dang thing to protect our individual liberty or our pocketbooks...

Note that Suzanne points out two things that are connected:

1. Certain people will not be allowed to purchase guns.
2. Obama announces he will focus on mental health issues associated with gun ownership.

We are still a ways off from the state declaring us as having some sort of mental quirk that could be set off and render us dangerous if armed.

Think about that for a moment.

Do you have an attitude problem? Are you hostile? Do you refuse to cooperate with authorities? Do you have an ex who swears you are no good?

Think of all the things that could be noted in your medical psychologist chart that could be construed as having ‘issues’.

And there you have it; a state declaration that you have mental issues and you will not be allowed to purchase guns until the state determines you are no longer a risk.

We are not far from this scenario. We will be disarmed on any pretext of mental health or a person at risk of aberrant behavior such as opposing Obama and his people, or next up Hillary.

This is how an underground gets born. But almost every form of electronic communication can be monitored, so communication among members of an underground will need to take into consideration every method by which the state can hack their way into listening and observing.

And we are normal people yeah?

No we are as Reid says a ‘crazy’ group that blocks everything he wants to do. The DHS and the military has been given policy manuals describing us as radical terrorists.

You go to Church, participate in your community PTA or local scout organization? Do you express your religious views that homosexuality is a sin? Are you affiliated with any Tea Party group? Do you believe in the Constitution and limited government?

You think you’re normal?

No my friend, you are not normal. You will be in the crosshairs of authorities who don’t like the way you talk and act. And you will be documented on any pretext as having ‘issues’ concerning mental health.

Conservatives are adults, with mortgages and responsibilities. Not college kids, living off mommy and daddy who can camp out for a summer.

Right. Liberals can get loads of students they will pay to bus in and give them course credit for it, or union workers who will get paid to attend, but conservatives don’t have those options.

I live in Massachusetts, and am fortunate I have the vacation time I can use, and the disposable income available to attend dozens of politically related gatherings and demonstrations over the years, both in my state and in Washington DC.

It also takes a supportive spouse and family.

I have all those things. But not everyone does, and I think we have to be realistic enough to recognize it.

I was just saying on another thread that it’s long past time since we should have taken this to the next level.

A march of 10,000,000 angry Americans, coupled with widespread acts of civil disobedience, should have occurred when Obamacare was up for the vote in Congress.

That was what - three years ago? Time has slipped by, and we’ve done nothing to match the regime’s escalation of this war for America.

While the Democrats and Republicans have been conspiring behind closed doors to put the last nail in the coffin of our Constitution, we’ve been morosely bickering on the internet, and complaining about every ratchet forward, toward a totalitarian dictatorship.

Nuts!

We’re boxing ourselves in, people. If we don’t figure out a way to step in up, and soon, we’re going to be left with only a couple of options - neither of them comfortable or painless.

Just asking a rational question here:

If the millions convening in Washington are committed to a “display of unswerving loyalty to the US Constitution,” how can they possibly think they can “see Obama, Biden, Reid, McConnell, Boehner, Pelosi, and Attorney General Holder removed from office” within the scope of said revered Constitution?

The right to freely assemble and to speak one’s mind is surely guaranteed, but there is no provision for mob rebellion nor for recall outside the impeachment or electoral process.

I’m all for a hissy fit — feel like pitching one myself. However, the stated goals of this assembly should be lawfully and realistically attainable or this is going to look like a better-mannered clone of the Occupy nutworks.

According to a friend who was arrested, cited, and fined for believing that; No. The State, or the local government has the right to regulate how and when you can 'peaceably assemble'.

Not even a soapbox. No permit (the government's blessing upon your actions), No "rights". The government will take the revenue from you for not purchasing a 'permit' to do so by legal fiat or force, at its discretion.

Haven't seen too much excitement about this yet, both here and other media. Maybe too early? I expect they'll be a lot of talk about it in April.
