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.

Hi, Carol....(my middle name!) and that is not the only thing we have in common...I'm 76, too, and cannot attend in DC...except in my deepest "spirit" I'll be right there! I loved your message I tutor 3 days a week in a Charter school....22 2nd graders....and during the pledge each day, it took only one child who was forbidden to say the pledge due to his mother's religion, to not say the pledge or put the hand over the heart. Soon 3-4 kids were following his actions.....but not for long. Granny Jan told them that it was not an option to opt out....and to be grateful and proud of the pledge.....of course I had to abide by the kid's mom, for the one child, for "religious" reasons....but how sad for that child. We have become friends and I can quietly offer ideas in a way that doesn't conflict with the mom's ideas....very carefully....and he is obviously grateful. He stood out so profoundly....as he cannot celebrate Christmas or Easter, Thanksgiving or any holiday. Your message, Carol, speaks exactly for me. Thanks.
We should carry some sign or even T-shirts that proclaim WE ARE UN-ARMED. That way anytime a camera focuses on any of us it will serve as refudiation of their claims which are increasing that we are equivalent to armed terrorists. They can refuse to listen, but they cannnot refuse what they see.
The Bible in one hand and a copy of the US Constitution in the other hand. Bill
Anne, there will be no gunfire from our side, but if there even is one shot, it will have come from the Left,
because all they know are lies and deceit, and we all know who promotes that- LUCIFER!
Michael and Anne.....Terry Trussell is working on a document for our guidance......among it's contents is:
From the OAS Patriot’s Pledge:
• I will abide by all laws written in compliance with our Constitution, and with respect to my God-given rights.
• I will conduct myself in a manner honoring our Founders, my Heritage, and my Fellow Americans.
• I will act with reverent respect to all those who have fought, and have fallen before me, in defense of LIBERTY.
• I SHALL PERSEVERE, WE SHALL PREVAIL!
Hi Harry, It should say I shall persevere ! We shall Prevail !
Peter Courtenay Stephens
Good catch Peter.............
I like that persevere thing -- but my thoughts were to stress UNARMED because it would sort of fly in the face of any news media who say we are violent radicals.
It's almost guaranteed we will be described as radical/extremists of some type - they are already saying it.
We can't stop them from saying it but our SHIRTS could refute it
I'm not as interested in conveying the message to the public that we will persevere as to SHOUT TO THE WORLD, everyone there by our attire WE ARE UNARMED.
I do hope it never comes to shots - but even tear gas - how much worse is it going to be to broadcast pictures of government bullies teargassing OR TAZING/SHOOTING people who are clearly UNARMED
Judging by what happened on the Bundy Ranch where they tazed some of the people - I really figure they are going to do something, the question is how far will they go, how bad, LETHAL?
Harry, That's a great pledge and worthy sentiments -- my thought was as to the shirts - it must be simple, condensed & succinct
and visually refute any descriptions of us as violent or extremists, radical, dangerous, etc.
Michael, You and those who think like you are harming this movement by interjecting your personal prejudices against Catholics into it. OAS must remain focused on its task and not allow prejudice or secondary issues to become a focus for it will divide the group which is clearly what satan and the government wants. So if you persist, you may want to look in the mirror and see who is really supporting satan.
I ask COL Riley to speak out on this for we cannot afford to become divided as we need every Patriot involved, and do not need troublemakers.
COL Riley, PLEASE respond.
There is no place in OAS to attack Catholics, Jews, or any other religion. OAS is about constitutional restoration, an idea, a way of freedom and liberty established under the hand of our Creator. God is our strength....and our unity......just as our Constitution is our unity. These two central principles must be our constant focus.
The Pledge outlines a good reflection of our efforts............
Amen, and thank you Sir.
