USA EYESWhen I was asked by one of the organizers of an upcoming event on May 16, to write an article, I wasn’t sure I wanted to do it—especially not sure as I researched it—but after thinking more about how our beloved America is being taken like a rug out from underneath us, I wanted to present to you the facts and let you decide yourself whether or not you want to attend.  I have been told by the organizers that they are expecting between one to five million attendees.  That’s quite a spread in numbers, but they must know something we don’t.

Retired Army Officer, Colonel Harry Riley calls for Americans to “rise up or surrender,” and exercise their First Amendment right—“the right to peacefully assemble” with Operation American Spring, a never-ending protest movement beginning on May 16 in the Beltway.  The event has as its goal, the removal of Barack Obama and the restoration of Constitutional government, the rule of law, freedom and liberty “of the people, for the people, by the people” from what he calls a “despotic and tyrannical federal” governance.  “American veterans and patriots are energized to end the tyranny, lawlessness, and shredding of the US Constitution.  Government is not the target; it is the corrupt and criminal leadership that must be replaced.”

When:           May 16, 2014

Where:         Washington, D.C.

Duration:     However long it takes

From the Colonel’s website Patriots for America:

  • American veterans and patriots are energized to end the tyranny, lawlessness, and shredding of the US Constitution.
  • Government is not the target, it is sound; corrupt and criminal leadership must be removed.

Colonel Riley describes the protest’s three-phase strategy:

Phase I—Peaceful Assembly

Colonel Riley says this protest will be a peaceful unarmed assembly reinforcing “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.”

Phase II—Who?

In addition to President Obama, Colonel Riley and his group are targeting the following leaders:

Vice President Joe Biden

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV)

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnel (R-KY)

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH)

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-A)

Attorney General Holder

As part of Phase II, millions of protestors will protest on a continuing basis in rotating teams around the clock.

Once that is accomplished, according to the Colonel’s website, the tribunals and investigations (vetting) will “recommend appropriate charges against politicians and government employees to the new U.S. Attorney General appointed by the new President.”

All actions in the second and third phases (see phase three below), Colonel Riley says, “Will be consistent with the U.S. Constitution.”

Riley continues, “We’re not suggesting that our government structure is bad;” we’re not even suggesting that the principles which the Founding Fathers gave us are bad or wrong.  What we’re saying is that the people who now occupy positions of power have betrayed the Constitution, have betrayed the Founding Father principles, and have betrayed ‘We the People’ in seeking power and greed in an incestuous operation in Washington.”

Phase II—The Plan

His website states that in accordance with the Constitution of the United States of America, once the above-named government officials are impeached, followed by a removal from office, the senior Republican in the House will become Speaker and the House will elect a temporary President and Vice President of the United States. The U.S. Senate, he added, will take action to elect a new majority and minority leader.

“As required, the U.S. Congress will execute appropriate legislation to convene new elections or U.S. States will appoint replacements for positions vacated consistent with established constitutional requirements,” he added.


Phase III—The Restoration


According to Colonel Riley’s website, “Tribunals” and investigations processes “will begin to find new leaders whose character and loyalty to the United States Constitution matches the quality of “Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC), Senator Rand Paul (R-KY),  Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC), Former Republican Congressman from Florida, Col. Allen West, Dr. Ben Carson and other Conservative leaders.”


While patriots on both sides of the isle may disagree with this strategy, everyone can agree today’s political climate of our government, for better or for worse, is tightening the noose around the neck of liberty in the United States of America.


Consider why this drastic measure is taking place since it’s obvious America is now being run by the godless Communists.


1978: Government in the Bedroom and Now the Bathroom Too

California placed limits on the amount of water a toilet is allowed to flush.


2013: The California legislature said they don’t want gender confused (go figure) kids to feel pressure to use the school restroom (or other school facilities labeled “girls” or “boys”)  if they are uncomfortable with the gender God gave them.  In other words, if a male thinks he is attracted to another male (therefore, supposedly making him a female), he can use the girls restroom—and vice versa for the females.


The bottom line is that “this law requires California public schools to allow students, as young as kindergarteners, to use bathrooms, showers, locker rooms, and other facilities based on their ‘gender identity’ and not biological sex.”


2005: The Energy Policy Act


The first requirement that renewable fuels be mixed into America’s gasoline supply was mandated and it gives “…the federal government new eminent-domain powers to clear paths for power lines –a long-standing demand of the nation’s electric utilities…”  and a whole bunch of other bad stuff.


2007: The Energy Policy Act Expanded


This law increased the quotas of the original federal mandate, and it will  require raising fuel-efficiency standards for automobiles, doubles the use of corn-based ethanol (despite the fact that bio-fuel is driving up food prices and worse for the environment than originally thought) in addition to what we’ve already seen—the phasing out of the incandescent light bulb.


2010, 2011, 2012: Bio-fuel Quota Reduced


Seriously?  One energy policy, a second energy policy followed by three separate bio-fuel quota reductions—such a drama of embarrassing foolishness.


“For the third consecutive year, the Environmental Protection Agency has drastically reduced cellulosic biofuel mandates, citing economic and technological hurdles. Even though industry officials consistently assure lawmakers and taxpayers that commercial production is ‘just around the corner,’ EPA yesterday reduced the 2012 cellulosic mandate by ninety eight percent. “


2013: What’s This?!

Bipartisan Bill Introduced to Eliminate Bio-fuel Mandate Again!


It just had to happen folks!  Diane Feinstein (D-CA) and Tom Coburn (R-OK) recently introduced legislation to eliminate bio-fuel mandate in response.


2007: Dry California Becomes Thirstier


A federal judge devastated thousands of lives and affected millions by reducing water for human consumption to protect a rare and declining fish (the Delta smelt) by cutting water deliveries to water pumping plants.  This fish only exists in California and has no commercial value. 

2014: California—Tiny Fish Win Survival Over Humans

In March, the liberal Ninth Circuit Court upheld the federal judge’s 2008 ruling, saying, “ ‘We recognize the enormous practical implications of this decision,’ 9th Circuit Judge Jay Bybee wrote. ‘But the consequences were prescribed when Congress determined that ‘these species of fish, wildlife, and plants are of esthetic, ecological, educational, historical, recreational, and scientific value to the Nation and its people.’ “


2008: California—Prop 8 Bans Same Sex Marriage


Wikipedia gives a good summary of the history of Prop 8 from when the voters in California voted against legalizing same sex marriage, then the Supreme Court ignored the will of the people in 2013 and brushed aside centuries of biblical marriage between a man and a woman.


2009: ObamaCare Shoved Down America’s Throats


The Un-affordable Health Care Act passed as then Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, arrogantly led her fellow traitors literally outside the halls of Congress on the lawn to thumb her nose at Conservatives who fought hard to keep this bill from becoming legislation.


The stench of bribes, backroom deals and payoffs will linger forever unless the Republicans reverse this law, but only by controlling the House, Senate and the presidency in 2014 and 2016.


2012: U.S. Supreme Court Upholds ObamaCare


The federal government can now force every one of us to buy a product against our will—whether we want it or not.  If that is not bad enough, we remember how our Supreme Court Chief Justice, “Rogue Roberts” stepped in and corrected the defense of Obama Care when it came before the SCOTUS.


The Obama Administration claimed that for those who would not buy health insurance they would be penalized and they made it clear that this was not a tax—that is—until Chief Justice Roberts overstepped the bounds of the court and changed the fine into a tax so it could be legally enforced.


However, according on Sunday, April 27, Fox News contributor, George Will, argued this fight is from over.  He argued that the Supreme Court inadvertently made Obama’s health care reform law unconstitutional when the justices ruled that it was not unconstitutional.


2011:  California Attempts to Pass Ergonomic Bed Making Law:


In California Senate Bill 432 would have required  that hotels could no longer allow their maids to make up beds with unfitted sheets.  Apparently, in anticipation of more of the creeping Nanny state, the manufacturers began making these sheets not just for hotels.  I cannot find a bottom sheet that is not circular.  This bill, two and a half years later, it appears to have died in committee and we Californians are stuck with elasticized circular bed sheets.


2012/2013: Soft Drink Size Fizzles

New York City Mayor, Michael Bloomberg, had his attempt to regulate soft drink sizes to 16 ounces shot down by a New York state judge.  The decision is in the appeal process.

2012: FDA Bans Affordable Asthma Medication

Primatene Mist, an affordable life-saving first line of defense for asthmatics, was ordered removed from the market by the FDA because it was a contributor to “global warming,” which the environmentalists are now calling “Climate Change,” but so is the carbon we all exhale as we breathe.  Affordable asthma inhaler is gone—expensive meds reign.


2013: Internal Revenue Service Targets Conservative Groups

The IRS has evolved into more of a “Secret Service” extension of this administration targeting groups that have the name “Tea Party” in their paperwork filing for a tax exempt status.  IRS e-mails  show that Tea Party groups could have faced criminal charges.


Consider just a few more examples:




What About Economic Freedoms?


The Heritage Foundation reports, “Since President Obama took office, the United States of America has slipped six spots in the Index with this year’s drop out of the world’s top ten freest economies serving as a cold slap in the face to those who equate Uncle Sam with freedom.”

The report attributes the drop, “primarily due to deteriorations in property rights, fiscal freedom, and business freedom.”

This is by no means an exhaustive list of our eroding freedoms that could fill a book, but rather a small example of what has become of our “late great United States.”

Whether or not you may agree with Colonel Riley, the May 16 event should be no surprise to any of us, regardless of which side of the aisle we prefer.  Watching this type of drastic measure (and similar events) taking place more frequently in D.C. is a result of our eroding freedoms that flies in the face of and shows total disregard for our rights, our Constitution and our laws—perpetrated on us by many of our elected and appointed public servants.  It is a collective concern of many who believe its time has come.

As has been pointed out, by others, there is not really a national or several national Tea Parties. There are groups who have leaders, and who for the most part are attempting to, or are, taking advantage of the Tea Party idea for fun and profit.

Some within local Tea Party Groups are supporting OAS, that is what I mean by "They".

They are members or believers in the Tea Party movement and are also supporting OAS. The Tea Party people, who are in local groups, are also for the most part, and this is common knowledge, Republicans, and you can bet that The Republicans at the State and National Level, have absolutely not the slightest intention of supporting OAS. Sooo At the local level they are not getting any feed on OAS, or getting any encouragement to support OAS. Keep in mind that the Tea Party is a very loosely knit group of people, entwined by the Constitution and the awareness that there is a very serious malady in our Government, and our Political System. There is a lot of flailing around, and few people able to speak clearly, who are listened to, so that is why on a national basis, and also locally the Tea Party has lost a great deal of it's power and momentum.

After the coming economic Collapse, there may be a new awakening, unfortunately, the Tea Party is made up of a whole bunch of us old fuddy-duddies, over 60 -70- and 80. So we may very well have had our day, or 15 minutes, in the sun, late in life, as a political force, but it is definitely setting for us. I will be in DC for Fri and Sat at the Washington Monument. Where else would a Patriot gather?

"I stand here by this great River, Our Leader crossed so many years ago, with his meager army,

I raise my eyes, and I say this !

General Washington Sir !

President Washington, Sir !

We have come !

We are Here !

We, the Patriots of this great land, stand with you Sir !

For our Constitution !

For Our Republic !

For Our Freedom and Liberty !

For Our Sacred Honor !

God Bless America !

Sic Semper Tyrannis !"

The End of Corrupt, Totalitarian Government Begins !

May 16, Washington, DC ! 



Remember this however:

When you are in the crowd on Our National Mall and you look about you, and you look into the eyes of the men and women who will be there with us. You can say unequivocally !

"There stands a man or women of Honor !

There stands an American Patriot ! "

Sic Semper Tyrannis !

There was an article on Average Joe website about how Tea Party Patriots, a woman who started it or runs it was on her way to making $450,000. Nice paycheck. So you can't help but wonder about who's in it for good and who's in it for the cash from people desperate for a way to fix this country. We have been let down but the corrupt and people take advantage of our disappointment. By the time we find out their already filthy rich and they slip away into the good life. Not saying the article was right but makes you think.

Not every one is that way of course, but there are certainly some. My local TP is a very nice group who I have known for a number of years. They do not see that the Republicans are using them at the top, by pitching to them most of the things they believe in, to keep them on the Republican Reservation for the most part. They do believe in change however, back to a Foundational Interpretation of the Constitution.

There are very few organizations where the CEOs don't make a under $100,000.00. Salvation Army is one of them and it's the only one I can think of. I'm finished with sending my pension money to support these money grubbing heads while they get rich. They think only of themselves! Reminds me of the Democrat and Republican politicians in Washington DC. They all become extremely rich before leaving office!

We have individual Tea Parties supporting but none of the national level have publicly supported us to my knowledge?  If I'm wrong, please provide the names....

There is no national leadership of the Tea Party - they are all individual, stand-alone operations.  At least that is what they always say when asked questions like "who is the Tea Party endorsing for x office?"  They always answer that there is no national endorsement of anybody - that the each Tea Party group reports to its own group leader, and are not dependent on anyone else for direction.  I don't think Oath Keepers is organized that way - they do have national leaders from what I understand, but I've never heard or read anything negative about OAS from any of their members.  In fact, I spend many hours a day on my computer, just reading blogs, news, comments, etc., from many conservative groups, and I've never seen anything negative from any one of them - other than a troll or an obot here and there, which can be immediately identified and doesn't amount to anything.  

Like you I spend hours going over conservative sites and I have not seen anything negative either. I will throw in a support comment for OAS here and there to try and get people to join.

I just posted a comment on almost a dozen conservative websites saying, Does (Insert website name) support OAS, Operation American Spring ? If not why ? The 16th is coming fast. Why OAS is not all over these sites is ? Does Egypt and Ukraine people love their country more than Americans.

If you were  a leader, you would have the sense to keep your mouth closed until the event has happened. At that point, you could make an informed comment about it's success or failure. Until then, you are just spouting off your big mouth. Your ego is front and center. When you really want to know about the United States Government, Let me know, and I will be happy to educate you.

Sic Semper Tyrannis !

The only thing I do not understand id why each group (they all profess to believe in the same thing) cannot join together and in mass, make their positions known.  If all the groups would act together, then the government would have no option but to act as the people wish.  As it is, the government will continue to ignore the protests.  Just a minority of the "uninformed or ignorant" blind followers of Obama and the Liberal Left will prevail and continue the destruction of our country.  This is just as the founding fathers warned us.
