Operation American Spring – A Call to Constitutional Restoration and Prayer, not a Call To Arms
Operation American Spring (OAS) continues to gain momentum toward its non-violent, unarmed, lawful, and massive ‘human petition’ to our elected Representatives beginning May 16th on the National Mall in Washington, DC. In spite of criticism by left-leaning pundits and naysayers, OAS is attracting more and more groups in support of their mission and their goals.
Using as part of OAS’ authority, the Declaration of Independence admonishes Americans that “it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security…” when such abuses and usurpations reach an intolerable level. OAS recognizes that it is not our Government that is at fault, rather an insidious bureaucracy of ideologues that are systematically degrading our world image and undermining the economic and social stability of our people. OAS uses such examples as President Obama’s circumvention of Congress, unilaterally creating laws, issuing Executive Orders and extending executive privilege beyond his legal authority, just to mention a few of his endless failings.
An historical level of other high crimes and misdemeanors, plus multitudes of appearances of impropriety from others in this Administration, include, but are far from limited to:
· Harry Reid’s arrogance, condescension, and willful disregard of his own crimes, while insisting others must pay for fabricated infractions.
· John Boehner’s failure to support the conservative principles and Constitutional constraints he swore to uphold.
· Nancy Pelosi’s repeated and endless support of legislation that runs contrary to American ideals and while showing her disdain for the middle class and our economy.
· Joe Biden’s lack of understanding of his Constitutional bounds and general knowledge of how anything, other than political manipulations, work.
· Mitch McConnell’s accepting a massive $5 billion federal payout to his state to change his vote in support of destructive legislation.
· Eric Holder’s refusal to enforce laws consistent with his authority, and irrespective of his personal politics, cultural bias, and political cronyism: Murders of Americans at Benghazi; IRS corruption; Fast & Furious; NSA invasiveness; Fort Hood Jihad Murders classified as ‘workplace violence’.
These are but a few instances where this Administration’s officials exhibit a nation of leaders with utter disdain for the US Constitution as the law of the land. Because none of these scandals have been adequately answered, nor violators held accountable, the conclusion must be, if leadership is so corrupt, there is no valid government. By all appearances, there may have been a silent coup with all branches of government complicit in the take-over of our Republic by an international cabal of bankers, corporations, with the complicit aid of bought-and-paid-for politicians.
Because of this, the People demand that the foregoing, and any others who fall into this culture of corruption and lawless disregard of this great nation’s sovereignty, step down from their respective offices and submit themselves for the appropriate legal processes.
Operation American Spring (oas2014.com), a grass roots gathering of American patriots is out in the open, with the simply-stated objective to restore our Federal Government to its Constitutional constraints. OAS is without mainstream media exposure, building massive support in a spontaneous, popular, and thoughtful response to the hundred-year-old revolution against our uniquely American ideals and Constitutional principles by an insidious, and destructive enemy. The OAS mission is driven by a mass of rapidly-expanding, highly-energized, and divinely-inspired Americans seeking nothing more than a return to lawful government and God’s hand back on America.
Members of Congress are in receipt of thousands of electronic petitions outlining OAS’ Declaration of Administrative Revision (Demands/Grievances), as described and authorized under America’s founding documents. Each Member is also receiving hard copy submissions of these same documents. They cannot truly claim ignorance; nor will they continue to ignore this call to duty and to justice, when millions of American patriots gather, and establish an unrelenting tide of prayerful vigilance over our Republic’s revival in the principles, traditions, and spiritual morality that brought us to the pinnacle of history’s nations.
America is awakening to the unprecedented levels of bureaucratic corruption, greed, and lawlessness spreading with exponential speed in its pillaging of our nation. America will no longer allow our People, or bequeath our progeny, to suffer as Communist slaves. Our mission commences with every intent to be prayerful, peaceful, and unarmed; founded on our Framer’s cautions, and with the steely determination to persevere until we prevail in giving our Constitutional government and God-given right to self-determination back to its People.

It is my prayer that finally the majority WAKE UP. Somnolescent apathy is a luxury we cannot afford. Col Riley's knowledge and organizational expertise is priceless to our cause so I thank him and everyone who is working to spread the word and increase awareness. it is a righteous cause even though I see ourselves and our efforts described as armed insurrection. At least they notice us. They can no longer afford not to, obviously this effort is not going away as they have been hoping. They will not be able to stop it by claiming to be victimized with labels like Birther. Whenever I see an effort to discredit this movement I take the opportunity to point out that it is their standard operating procedure for anyone who opposes them because they have no facts - just lies.
I continue to be amazed at the shameless, unmitigated gall and hubris - to so arrogantly violate our Constitution as you have pointed out - to step up their efforts to completely dismantle and destroy our traditions and our values - WITHOUT APOLOGY as though it is their RIGHT. It seems more accurate, imo, to say it is their CRIME.
I have noticed an increase in attacks on the credibility of Col. Riley and our cause - as well as Mr. Bundy in Nevada - they wish to obfuscate (they've had years of practice) and distract with wild accusations that would normally not be such a problem except that there is no media to set the record strait.
Excellent article -
We may be the first, but certainly not the last. THIS is only the beginning. It is the Duty of all Americans to Stand in defense of their Constitution and their Civil Rights. Will be proud and Present May 16, 2014 in Washington DC.
Hooooo Raaahhhh. Good job Colonel . . .Good job.
Thanks and prayers to you, Colonel Riley. We support you in all your efforts to restore our Republic.
While I am a disabled, senior woman, I want you to know that I am behind this action 100%. Actually feel it should have happened long before this. While I cannot be there, I am there with you in spirit and in prayer that all that attend will be safe from harm. I also hope that many more will converge on their state governments to push to stand up to this blatant move to destroy our Country. As Americans, we must make a STAND NOW. We are running out of time.
Col, I was so glad to see the first line saying "Not a call to Arms", this means if there is violence it will be them not you. And that is the only way for our side to win, remain peaceful and always on the right side my friend.
What News Media have accepted and printed this or at least reported on it? I have seen little or no mention of the OAS as yet. One would expect that FOX NEWS might be the first to pick up on it.
Well written Col. Riley!!
FOX news is no longer an independent network. A saudi prince controls, at last note, 7% of the corporation giving him a large voice in what they can & cannot do. We cannot even count on Glenn Beck who has come out publicly against OAS. He asked for anyone who disagrees with him to cancel their subscriptions and unfriend him, which I did. Sadly, he has sold out and no longer deserves our support.
Betsy - Your post hit the nail on the head. I think Beck is definitely confused about OAS. It is very hard to contact him. I tried to no avail. Would someone have his postal mailing address? Please post here, if you do.
