If the unpleasant weather continues, maybe we'll head up to DC and take part in the "American Spring." What a rush it will be this friday when literally MILLIONS of brave patriots dressed like Patrick Henry with AR-15s descend upon the mall in Washington to demand the resignation of the so-called "president" of the "United" "States," and then he'll totally have to give in because, seriously, you guys, there are going to LITERALLY be MILLIONS of people showing up this time. For real this time!
The "Operation" is being headed up by some retired Colonel named Harry Riley. Here is part of an interview in which he explains the whole dealio:
Mort: How did you come up with this idea of an ‘Operation American Spring’?
Col. Riley: I, and believe “we the people” have been agonizing for more than five years, watching the deterioration of America at the hands of unscrupulous politicians
Interesting how, up until 5 years ago, politicians were totally scrupulous! I wonder what changed. . .?
I realized we face much the same abuse that our Founding Fathers were experiencing. A Crown exerting a heel of pain on our early citizens, much like Barack Obama and other betrayers are imposing on America today.
Damn that Barack Obama, constantly quartering soldiers in our homes and issuing writs of attainder!
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.
How could our elected officials possibly not have responded to our totally sane screaming at town hall meetings?
We have no faith in the ballot box any longer, as many believe this sacred secret box has been compromised.
Also, many believe that the moon landing was fake and that professional wrestling is reral.
Mort: Your [sic] hoping 10 million people will show up for OAS, isn’t that kind of high?
Kind of high? Don't you mean kind of low? Only 10 million people? Showing up to demand that the duly elected and re-elected president resign his office? For the high crime of pissing off guys with Gadsen flags? Who wouldn't show up for that?
Mort: Your hoping 10 million people will show up for OAS, isn’t that kind of high?
Col. Riley: In less than 30 days of the call for the massive “movement to action” in Washington, D.C., nearly every State in America, every political persuasion, rich, poor, every color, all ages, men, women, liberal, conservative, independent, unemployed, et al are now mobilizing to participate in this peaceful, non-violent, cause in the search for constitutional restoration for America.
Oh, clearly all those people are currently "mobilizing." Why wouldn't they? Just like last time when all those millions of truckers showed up and shut down the freeways, and Barack Obama came up with his hands up and . . . oh, they didn't? Well, this time is sure to be different! Because, um . . . FREEDOM?
We have well over 1 million militia members mobilizing; bikers, truckers, hunters, Tea Party groups
Aren't they gonna be a little busy this weekend, riding ATVs over sacred American Indian archeological sites?
Mort: OAS will be using civil disobedience in the hopes of shutting down D.C., why hasn’t anyone else thought of this?
Yes, no one else has ever thought of using civil disobedience to -- really? No one? I mean, my God, the fucking million trucker debacle was just a few months ago. Using civil disobedience to try to shut down DC and failing miserably has definitely been thought of before.
Col. Riley: There is a time for all things under heaven………God willing, now is the time for this massive, gigantic effort as a last stand before America moves into a more devastating condition. Americans are long suffering and patient, but God has made a way for freedom and liberty loving Americans to answer the call in defense of our nation.
Yeah, actually the Bill of Rights made that way about 200 years ago, what with the right of people to peaceably assemble and petition for a redress of grievances and what-not. But sure, let's go with the whole God has chosen this moment in history to blah, blah, blah. . .thing.
Mort: The ‘Truckers Ride for the Constitution’ was a total failure, what is different about Operation American Spring?
Col. Riley: We learn from every event……I don’t agree the the Truckers effort was a total failure
Right. The 2007 Miami Dolphins season was a total failure at 1-15. But they did manage to eke out one win, The Trucker thing was whatever a total failure minus one win would be called.
Mort: Let’s say OAS is successful in shutting down D.C., what happens then?
Then let's say that Bigfoot rides in on a unicorn and performs a duet with Elvis Presley who was just beamed down from the mother ship. Then what?
Col. Riley: A shut down will impact government, it will impact commerce, it will make people mad, some will welcome it, some won’t. . . It is unclear how this will all unravel but we are calling for the removal of Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Nancy Pelosi, and Eric Holder as a start toward constitutional restoration.
Oh, is that all? Well, why didn't you say so? Oh, I'm sure that all those people would be perfectly willing to resign, once they realize how much you really really don't like them. Of course, they may be a bit conflicted about that, seeing as how their actual constituents keep re-electing them over and over, but I'm sure a million doofuses in triangular hats will outweigh the votes of millions ofpeople from their actual districts or states.
What is actually surprising about this group is that, for all their faux-military terminology "Operation," " the mission," etc, they are actually asking their millions of imaginary friends to show up un-armed!
(from their silly, stupid website)
Concept of Operations: Phase 1 - Field millions, as many as ten million, patriots who will assemble in a peaceful, 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 replace with law abiding 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.
Good to go with the assumption that at least 10 million people are going to show up for this, with at least a million with no jobs to go back to. Because otherwise this whole idea just seems kind of silly!
Phase 3 – Those with the principles of a West, Cruz, Dr. Ben Carson, Lee, DeMint, Paul, Gov Walker, Sessions, Gowdy, Jordan, should 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.
What better way to show how much you value the Constitution than by having a rogue group of nutsos "assume positions of authority" as decided by some ad-hoc "tribunal?" That seems totally Constitutional!
*All actions in Phase 2 & 3 will be consistent with the U.S. Constitution.
Oh, of course. I mean, that really goes without saying. It's just like how it's okay to rob a bank as long as you say that your robbery is totally within the bounds of the law against robbery.
Please bathe this effort in prayer as there is no personal agenda or gain save liberty, freedom, and restoration of constitutional government for "we the people".
--Harry Riley, COL, USA, Ret
Well, that's a new one. "bathe" in prayer? Okay, sure. I was almost done here anyway, I'll just go sign off now and start bathing things in prayer.
