There seems to be an increasing level of frustration, arguing, and backbiting appearing on the Constitutional Emergency Discussions. I am very concerned that we are allowing our enthusiasm to wane; that we are taking our frustrations out on each other.
There is no question but what the initial turnout was disappointing. We must make an even greater effort! Try, if you will, to put yourself in Col. Riley’s shoes. This man spent years in honorable service to his country; now, at 76 years of age, when he should be able to enjoy his "golden years," he has once more had to offer up his life for this nation. Think about how disappointed he must have been on May 16, when the 1.8 million who had committed to attending had shrunk to 1000. Yet he never wavered. He marched on with the small army he had.
To those who have suggested we need new leadership, I say: Col. Riley has never deviated from Operation American Spring’s purpose:
1) Oust the "Dirty Seven" - Obama, Biden, Holder, Reid, Pelosi, Boehner, and McConnell;
2) Restore our Constitutional Republic to what the Founders intended it to be.
That, Patriots, is what we need to be focusing on. Not on issues such as the environment, birther argument, or the legitimacy of the Iraq war. These other issues, while they may very well be important, WILL NOT FURTHER OUR CAUSE. We must stay focused. We must put forth even greater effort. We must not allow ourselves to bicker and fight amongst ourselves, for a house divided cannot stand. WE MUST UNITE, AND STAY UNITED BEHIND OUR CAUSE.
Ask yourself: What can I do? Can I find a way to go to Washington, D.C., even for just a few days? Can I do more in my local area? Most of us are already calling and/or emailing our representatives and senators, talking to family and friends, and printing up flyers to pass out. Think: What else can I do? If you can get together with other Patriots, do it. We all can do better with the sharing of ideas. For example, another Patriot came up with a simple way to spread the word that I had totally overlooked: Leaving a flyer with your tip in restaurants (thank you, Maria!).
We are in a battle against evil forces that would destroy our beautiful country. The damage is already very grave; we have no time to waste.
I will leave you to ponder some quotes that illustrate the great change that has come upon our nation over the last fifty years:
"Ask not what your country can do for you; "The Constitution is a charter of negative
ask what you can do for your country." liberties...it doesn't say what the federal
government must do on your behalf."
"A rising tide lifts all boats." "The rich must pay their fair share!"
-John F. Kennedy -Barack H. Obama

God bless you, your family, the OAS effort and our nation.
Speaking of Impeach, I received this notce from Grassfire Nation:
During Grassfire's morning meeting today, I surprised my staff by announcing that we are RUSHING "Impeach Obama" petitions to the House Judiciary committee THIS AFTERNOON!
I realize this is ahead of our scheduled delivery, but given the fluidity of the Internal Revenue Service scandal and cover up, and what we are hearing from our insiders, the time is now for grassroots Americans to boldly speak up and demand corrective action from Congress against President Barack Obama.
Louise, I see that your petition will be among the more than 100,000 presented today, and I am grateful for your willingness to take action. But right now, I need your help in support of Grassfire's "Impeach Obama" petition presentation later today.
I'm asking all members of our team who have signed the petition to do two very important things this afternoon -- while the petitions are arriving:
+ + Action Item #1 -- Schedule Your Faxes
First, if you haven't already done so, schedule your faxes for immediate delivery to the House Judiciary Committee (the committee responsible for drafting articles of impeachment).
Go here now to schedule your faxes.
Unlike petitions, there is an immediacy to your faxes. As soon as you hit submit, the impeach message is pouring into key House offices and amplifying grassroots outrage!
Working in concert with our petition delivery this afternoon, your faxes effectively drive home the "Impeach Obama" message.
Schedule your faxes now for fast delivery.
(Grassfire Premier and Elite members can send this fax at no charge by clicking here.)
+ + Action Item #2 -- Call Your Elected Leaders
After scheduling your faxes, take a few additional moments to contact your member of Congress, as well as the House Judiciary Chairman and ranking member, letting them know that you are petitioning them to draft articles of impeachment against Barack Hussein Obama.
Call the Congressional Switchboard
Robert Goodlatte (R-VA) Chairman, House Judiciary committee: 202-225-3951
John Conyers (D-MI) Ranking Member, House Judiciary committee: 202-225-6906
Don't let the Obama administration take us for fools. Go here to schedule your faxes for immediate delivery to key House Judiciary and leadership targets:
Then join the thousands of Grassfire team members who are making phone calls in support of this critical "Impeach Obama" petition presentation!
Thanks for the stand you are taking.
Don't forget OAS has Articles of Impeachment before the House Judiciary Committee also........we have heard nothing from Congress regarding the Articles nor our Demands and Grievances that all 535 members received.
You can read the Demands/Grievances as well as the Articles at the TAB top this page "OAS Packet To Congress"
Respectfully Sir, you will not hear anything! We've already tried the letters, faxes, phone calls, local radio shows and newspapers, one day rallies, etc. to no avail! BOTH PARTIES ARE CORRUPT AND WASHINGTON D.C. IS A CESSPOOL! The main objective of OAS was to get millions of Americans into D.C. to take back and save our country! Doing anything else now is a waste of time and effort and will not work! Let's go back to plan A and get national media coverage to let the American people know about OAS! Please schedule a date this fall for a new "Operation American Spring! All effort has to be directed only towards getting national coverage i.e., Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, Greta Van Susteren, Rush Limbaugh, billboards, etc.! I understand the Egyptians had to rally 3 times in Cairo before they were successful in taking back their country! Colonel, we cannot wait any longer!
I second that!!!
I absolutely support this idea!!!
I was going to make a comment but it didn't come through so I'm not going to bother. This is not the first time my comment didn't make it through. Too frustrating.
Bill hang in there! We all need to hang In there. We (America) has to make it to the Finish line. When I get frustrated about this, I reflect on The Continental soldiers without pay for a month, and some having no shoes in the snow but they continued. Or the Marines it the Chosin Reservoir in Korea fighting 10 times their number in 24 below. If they can do it, so can we!
Jean and Col Riley,
Pattie and I are behind you 100%. Everyone, no matter what the issue, complaint or problem, we need to realize who the enemy (so-to-speak) is. Then focus on thinking what can I add to make this successful and work. That is the American way, not b thing, moaning, and not accomplishing a damn thing going down that path. IN AZ About 8 of us stopped what we were doing, My wife and I drove 3 hours to go get a donation. We were NOT going to allow fellow Americans that we never met BUT were doing something, to not be helped by me and some fellow church goer's and friends. Those people were taking the time out of their life to go to Washington DC and "try" to make MY country better. I applaud and appreciate that and so should every American that loves their country.The Col and others are doing this for OUR children and grandchildren! Isn't that enough to get over personal issues? Why is it the Democratic party able to , but we are not? RUBBISH, not on my watch, my 6 and 5 year old Grandchildren are here today, my efforts are for them and your grandchildren!
Keep remembering the woman before the judge in the Bible - She had to keep on going to him - We need to do the same until they get so sick of hearing about it that they give us what we want to shut us up. Keep calling, Keep e-mailing - Keep the pressure on. Every time an Obama issue shows up in the news - send a new round of fire into their offices.
This will just build on top of what OAS produced as a foundation - footers poured, foundation started, next goes up the structure.
Stand strong Patriots, look for every opportunity and exploit it to the max!!!
Great idea and it is before schools get started in the Fall - more people have open time :-)
