Former military officer and NSA employee Harry Riley is planning a march on Washington, D.C. on May 16, dubbed Operation American Spring. According to his website, this Christian patriot seeks to emulate the Arab Spring uprising of a few years ago, and the mob takeover of the Ukrainian presidency in February 2014. Not just another futile TEA Party march, brother Riley hopes for something much more revolutionary.
We want our liberty NOW!
He wants to end government corruption and end lawless usurpation via a ‘ten million man march’ on Washington. Drive or fly to D.C. for a day or a week, and put your favored people in office. Popular sovereignty is now rule by the mob. This is taken directly from the OAS website:
“Concept of Operations:
Phase 1 – Field…as many as ten million patriots who will assemble in a peaceful, non-violent…display…against the incumbent government leadership…to replace with law abiding leadership…
Phase 2 – One million or more of the assembled ten million…stay in D.C. as long as it takes to see Obama, Biden, Reid, McConnell, Boehner, Pelosi, and Attorney General Holder removed from office. Consistent with the U.S. Constitution…Congress will…execute appropriate legislation, deal with vacancies, or U.S. States will appoint replacements for positions vacated consistent with established constitutional requirements.
Phase 3 – Those with the principles of a West, Cruz, Dr. Ben Carson, Lee, DeMint, Paul, Gov. Walker, Sessions, Gowdy, Jordan…comprise a tribunal and assume positions of authority to convene investigations, recommend appropriate charges against politicians and government employees to the new U.S. Attorney General appointed by the new President.”
I am not making this up.
I don’t question this patriot’s motives; only his common sense and knowledge of the U.S. Constitution. If this mob rally attracts over 20,000 people I will be amazed. Still, the CIA has orchestrated many a coup in foreign countries, but OAS assurance that the U.S. Constitution will be adhered to, is ludicrous. Nothing in the U.S. Constitution remotely suggests that a mob can unseat presidents or members of Congress, and force Congress to convene a tribunal to seat their replacements.
As a practical and strategic matter, another Glenn-Beck-style extravaganza that only results in time lost from work and wasted travel expense will only lead to constitutionalists becoming even more dispirited and cynical.
The so-called Arab Spring uprising might have made sense for powerless Arab serfs, but mob action is preposterous for us; We The People are sovereign over our constitutions, by which laws we created and control our servant governments.
Merriam-Webster defines a coup d’état as “a sudden attempt by a small group of people to take over the government.” If you’re pulling a coup, why force Congress to impeach only a small group of criminals, letting hundreds of others off scot free?
If a mob of Americans ever does such a thing, as the Ukrainian mob did in February — they will open Pandora’s Box. Today, our Constitution exists in name only; government has violated it for generations. A mob overthrow would only take the lawlessness to a higher level. Even if this mob has honorable intentions, future mobs may not.
The Citizen Militia’s Duty
Read Article I, Section 8, Clause 15 of the U.S. Constitution; the Citizen Militia powers include the duty to ‘suppress Insurrections’. Armed or not, brother Riley’s political coup would be an insurrection and the Citizen Militia has a constitutional duty to suppress it. While not as perilous as the failed May 2013 Open-Carry March on Washington planned by Adam Kokesh, another former military employee, I pray that Col. Riley’s planned mob action likewise fails to materialize.
To restore Citizen Militia — the Constitution’s design for law enforcement and national defense — will take years. Join Project Appleseed as a first step. If you are an employee or elected member of a sheriff’s or constable’s office or police force that seeks to always defend the Constitution, join CSPOA. If you are a current or former member of any law enforcement or military organization and vow never to violate the Constitution by turning on your own sovereigns, join Oath Keepers.
When AmericaAgain! membership grows to critical mass, AmericaAgain! Minutemen™ will recruit gun dealers, tactical training facilities, and others to push through Citizen Militia legislation as required of every State by the U.S. Constitution. If you have tactical firearms and operations credentials and experience and want to apply for a State Coordinator position in AmericaAgain! Minutemen™, visit that page and advise us in the comments section.
Government by Cartel: America the Next Mexico?
Russia’s crime cartels are becoming as legendary as those of Italy, and the people of Mexico are presently under total control by drug cartels running their country in bloody defiance of law.
For many generations, however, America has been run like Russia, Italy, or Mexico; our Constitution and New Testament Christian foundation failed to hold the line against the cartels.
Our first challenge is our own unrepentant hearts. Sincere repentance isn’t words, posts, or mob rallies; it is stopping what you’ve always done, and doing your duty for a lifetime.
Conservative pundits paint the Obamacare hijacking as a staggering new violation of law — but the cartels have owned us for six generations. As in the Old World, a few hundred billionaires control the lives, liberties, and labors of all Americans — and Operation American Spring will do nothing to end that.
If you believe that removing Obama and a handful of others will end this 150-year hijacking of our Constitution — you don’t understand the problem.
American Marxism is 150 Years Old
Obama did not begin the communist hijacking; that distinction goes to Abe Lincoln, who was a follower of Karl Marx, as we explained in THIS article.
With the 37th Congress, Lincoln created an illegal national army in 1861 under the pretense of ending slavery. The following year, the cartels doubled down, pushing their Legal Tender Act through Congress, legalizing counterfeiting.
Most Americans believe that history’s largest financial crime began 51 years later, when Congress outsourced its counterfeiting operations to the FED cartel in 1913. In truth, the cartel began operations through its D.C. puppets in 1871 when they deep-captured the last branch (U.S. Supreme Court) by placing two of their stooges on the bench, who made a new majority on the court, to rule that it was fine to openly violate the Constitution by counterfeiting U.S. money.
Allies Don’t Aid Enemies
In THIS recent blog article, I suggested that the Conservative Talk industry is a greater threat than liberals are to constitutionalists, for two reasons.
First, because they profit from shooting blanks in a theatrical war that they have no intention of winning; only to sell advertisements. Second, because they divert us from real duty, making us believe that listening to a radio entertainer will improve things just because we agree with his rants.
If you would defend the U.S. Constitution, don’t sap your audience’s money and energy with ads for products, with vein-popping but insincere daily rants — or for that matter, with mob actions that make our side appear as lawless vigilantes holding private elections.
I am not bashing the competition; brother Riley’s project can only make patriots resemble Occupy Wall Street: a mob occupying D.C. for a few days, like Egyptians or Ukrainians, hoping to overthrow government.
Citizens’ Duty: Sovereign Superintendence
Our situation is as perilous as Mexico’s; regardless who wins elections, the cartels remain in control. All three branches of our servant government have been deep-captured since before our great-grandparents were born. The immigration debate is moot: the cartels already own the American taxpayer, who is now as cynical, hopeless, dependent, and inert as any Mexican.
In this article we expose the cartels, explain why the 10 most popular proposed ‘solutions’ in the past have not slowed D.C. corruption, and we present AmericaAgain! — a peaceful, practical, powerful, perpetual solution whose time has come.
We will not slay this monster with posters, TEA Party costumes, or a coup and new elections. Just a remnant (half of 1% of our population) can work through our existing State criminal courts to arrest the cartels’ D.C. puppets. To quote a line from The Untouchables — “that is how we beat Capone.”
Restoring constitutionally limited government, lawful U.S. money, and moral banking will take years, but we can bust the first handful of criminals in Congress — and we CAN turn the tide, in mere months.
My Conversation With Colonel Riley
I spoke to brother Riley, suggesting that if he intends to make hundreds of thousands of citizens spend $500+ to travel to D.C., he should use the opportunity to launch an actual solution.
AmericaAgain! is a lawful, peaceful, practical, powerful, perpetual solution to stop the cartels. I advised him that we would be honored to speak there, to sign up those who are ready to take action not for a day, but for the rest of their lives as responsible sovereigns.
The colonel advised me that OAS would have no speakers; no program or agenda; no podium or sound system — just a million people (or more), gathered in D.C. until Obama, Biden, and the others are replaced by an ad hoc tribunal.
Therefore, at 8:30am on the Monday prior to OAS (this coming Monday), I’m scheduled to be interviewed on Washington D.C.’s powerhouse talk radio station, WCBM, to present AmericaAgain! to the D.C. metro area.
Read this article to see how We The People will take up our sovereign duty over our government servants. We CAN stop the cartels that run Washington D.C. — and with only a small, bold remnant of We The People. We seek to recruit Congressman Trey Gowdy to be our AmericaAgain! Chief Counsel. This is a long-term plan of popular sovereignty that can actually work.
Let’s not do what our fathers and grandfathers did — then have to explain to our enslaved grandchildren that when the Constitution cried out for enforcement, we made posters and drove to a D.C. mob rally instead.Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
