Who is Inviting Violence in D.C.
May 16th 2014?
Saul Alinsky, Communist radical professor, inspiration for the Obama Presidential Campaign Platform and Administrative policies, instructed his acolytes to accuse their opponents of the very things they themselves, were doing and believing. If you’re arrested for theft, accuse the police of stealing. Disarm, distract, and deflect. …more info
Operation American Spring (OAS) is accused of bringing armed violence to DC in support of their mission to rid our government of malfeasance bureaucrats through lawful and abundantly justifiable resignation. Further it is asserted the OAS presence in DC is designed by its organizers to cause a ‘bloodbath’ because of OAS’ planned ‘violent’ threats and actions. Or perhaps it’s just wishful thinking on the part of those committed to defending their illegal bureaucratic actions; or the intentional tactics of their Alinskyite protégés to disarm, distract, and deflect.
From the OAS Patriot’s Pledge comes a contrary view:
- 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 WILL PERSEVERE, WE WILL PREVAIL!
Adding context to the above, consider OAS founder, Col Harry Riley’s own call for ‘…unarmed, non-violent, and peaceful presence by patriotic Americans…’
So who do you believe: the organization forming the event; or the Marxist agitators, media supporters and radical trouble makers? Without the Alinsky doctrine as a guide, it is difficult to discern how the above-referenced commitments could possibly reflect any intent of OAS participants to cause destruction or become brutally confrontational. Further, how could any reasonable mind view as ‘radicals’ and ‘extremists’, a grassroots movement of mostly older military veterans, and other patriotic Americans committed to rescuing their government from control by criminal bureaucrats, and reviving our great Republic once again under the constraints of Constitutional principles. Such charges can only come from those who are desperate to ‘disarm, distract, and deflect’ any attention that might be paid to their own historic levels of corruption and lawless assaults on the peace and tranquility of Americans.
It is now ‘normal’ to link the morality-deprived DC culture with its evident disdain for our laws and our Constitution. Consider how quickly the BLM, FBI, DHS, FEMA, IRS, etc., resort to inappropriate and unprecedented levels of violence to counter simple infractions of tax laws or ‘environmental regulations’. America watched in shock as Cliven Bundy’s family refused to recognize highly-questionable federal authority’s claims to land the family has owned for over a century. The BLM thugs resorted to the use of attack helicopters slaughtering his cattle, armored troops blocking public highways, as they searched everyone within a 10-mile radius. BLM engaged in destroying property, and threatening women and children with snipers and Tasers, then attempting to discredit their victim by fabricating and contorting evidence to brand him as ‘racist’. Disarm, distract, and deflect.
Many pundits and other left-leaning voices condemned Bundy for ‘violating the law’. Even the self-proclaimed stalwart of Constitutional principle and original intent, Glen Beck, stated that ‘…laws must be obeyed.’ Be you reminded, Sir, even the Supreme Court ruled that “A Law repugnant to the Constitution is void.” Is there any worse authority than one exceeding its own bounds, more repugnant to the Constitution? And when a force moves against those it is designed to protect, regardless how beneficent its pretenses, is that not the most insidious and vile act of violence?

AMERICA IS CALLING FOR DEFENDERS
IF NOT ME, WHO? IF NOT NOW, WHEN?
Pundits, leftist, naysayers, one and all are taking their best shot discrediting Operation America Spring(OAS) ( oas2014.com ) as the movement continues to gain strength. The movement toward a “peaceful, lawful, non-violent, unarmed” massive/gigantic May 16, 2014 independent citizen gathering on the Washington, D.C. Mall is in full mobilization. Even the Secret Service and FBI view OAS as a credible, lawful event…the message from the false propaganda wing of the social media have lost the battle.
Operation American Spring, a grass-roots movement of individual patriots is out in the open, no secrets as to the mission of beginning constitutional restoration, no donation button collecting thousands of dollars, no support by main stream media, just growing, energizing, inspirational citizens seeking lawful government and God’s hand back on America. Patriots are claiming half of the street…no longer relinquishing the entire street to radicals who are intent on lawless behavior.
It is impossible to deny the lawlessness and anti-constitutional behavior of federal officials and their minions in Washington, D.C. over the last five years. It’s no longer implied, shielded, or in the shadows, it’s directly from Barack Obama in his “finger waving”, Harry Reid’s categorization of patriots in Nevada as “domestic terrorist” , armed thugs threatening families in Nevada, Texas, and God only knows where else…international embarrassment, national debt and pain for untold number of generations.
It’s interesting that the Obama Administration views the Benghazi attacks leaving four Americans dead as a “spontaneous protest”; Nidal Hasan’s Fort Hood murders leaving 13 dead and 29 wounded Americans while screaming “Allah Akbar” as “workplace violence”; and Bundy Ranch protest where 0 deaths, 0 injured, 0 shots fired, as “domestic terrorists” action. There must be a stronger word than despicable for the Obama/Reid Administration.
Can it be rightly said Fast and Furious murders, Benghazi murders, IRS scandals, attack on conservative media, Tea Party intimidation, NSA treachery, attorney general discrimination in legal defense of laws, attack on States sovereignty, on and on, reflects a nation of leaders that support the US Constitution as the law of the land? Of course not, in fact it suggests a purposeful action to ignore and destroy the US Constitution, as Congress cowers. None of these scandals have been adequately answered nor violators held accountable…if the leadership is corrupt and lawless, is there still a valid government? Has there been a silent coup with all branches of government complicit in the take-over of America by an international cabal of bankers, corporations, bought and paid for politicians? American is demanding answers!
The United States 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 structure given us by our Founding Fathers 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.
The Congress has received thousands of electronic petitions ( http://calltoaction.oas2014.com) outlining OAS Declaration of Revision(Demands/Grievances) , Articles of Impeachment and other documents describing what OAS is about.
They are also receiving hard copy submission of these same documents. They cannot claim ignorance, nor can they ignore the American people any longer. We expect their recognition of OAS Submission and a measure of movement toward a solution when millions of patriots visit on the D.C. Mall to express our freedom of speech, right of assembly, and expect answers from Congress and the Administration to our Demands and Grievances.
American lives have been lost all over the world fighting for other nations to gain or regain liberty, freedom, and human decency. Is it reasonable to believe “we the people” will not stand up for our own nation, as lawless self-servers seek her destruction? Perhaps Nevada is a signal that America is awakening to the reality of corruption, greed and the lawless virus that is spreading at exponential speed destroying the nature on our nation. We will not be silent, nor stand mute any longer.
America has decided we must stand up to lawless federal leadership. The thought that our children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren could be left with a socialist, communist, nanny nation of slaves ruled by despots should ignite the fighting spirit of every American.
There can be no greater priority this side of Heaven than defense of America and our US Constitution. If death is required to confirm our determination to protect our nation and restore constitutional government, so be it.
God help us find honorable men and women of leadership, in responsible positions of government that will exercise courage, stand with OAS, call out lawless politicians publicly, demand oaths be refreshed and obeyed, or face expulsion.

PRESS RELEASE PRESS RELEASE PRESS RELEASE
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.
A 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, 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 prayerful, peaceful, and unarmed men and women; 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.

Operation American Spring (OAS) Stands with A Nevada Rancher Family in Defense of Liberty
The Internet has been on fire over the past few days reporting and discussing the issue regarding a Nevada family and their fight to retain property they have managed and claim ownership of for over 100 years. All the details are unclear but what is clear is the Bureau of Land Management, has been illegally encroaching on ranchers, driving them out of homes and livelihoods for decades, illegally confiscating land, using pretentious environmental rationale and bogus claims of stewardship, in key commercially and industrially valuable areas particularly in the western states, and specifically, just a few miles northwest of Las Vegas.
The standoff by Bureau of Land Management agents at the Bundy Ranch developed as a threat over the last week or so. It escalated to the point of arrests, tazing a couple citizens, impeding public access, establishing ‘First Amendment-Free Zones’, intimidation by placing snipers in high-visibility locations, Illegally rounding up, abusing and in some cases, killing Bundy cattle and other livestock, while generally creating a ‘no-man’s land’ around the Bundy property in the vicinity of Bunkerville, Nevada.
The escalation of tensions continued until Saturday April 12, 2014. Late in the day BLM did what has come to be expected from almost every incident these government contractors instigate: tactical withdrawal in the face of public resistance. But they will be back, using what they learn from the first assault, to make the next more devastating
What was the critical factor that stalled the bureaucrats’ lawless attack? The answer is a power higher than man, the love of freedom, liberty, the power of some thousands of peaceful American citizens rejecting Gestapo-style tactics.
Putting personal considerations aside, probably exercising sacrifice, Americans descended on the area surrounding the Bundy Ranch from all over America to display, in no uncertain terms, “we will no longer stand by and allow lawless, anti-Constitutional behavior by oath-bound public servants.”
American’s who have had enough of the heavy hand of tyranny arrived…men, women, ordinary citizens, standing in defense of the wrongfully oppressed and for the generations of children and grandchildren of all Americans.
The Bunkerville event should be a signal to America and the planned Operation American Spring (OAS) event in a couple of ways. One, the effectiveness of a large, determined, peaceful assembly “of we the people”; Two, a heartfelt reflection of how deep-seated our desire has become to pursue freedom, liberty, even at the expense of potential harm to our persons.
Operation America Spring reflects the challenge we face on a national scale, but the potential impact is similar to the results carried out by God-fearing, constitution-loving, determined patriots in Nevada. Our brave “we the people” in Nevada are delivering fresh hope of freedom, liberty, and a reversal of tyrannical behavior in lawless public offices. Next month, Operation American Spring will bring the opportunity to restore Liberty in Washington, D.C,, challenging federal lawless officials, so it can spread throughout the country, and bring renewed hope to those who cling to the American spirit throughout the world.
My inspiration cup runs over in praise to God and gratitude to our fellow patriots that stood in the gap in Nevada. May all be so bold to mirror our Nevada brethren’s courage for Liberty in Washington, D.C.

America, what if everything thing that Judge Napolitano said in this video is true for America today?
The Judge nails it. He articulates the reason why Millions of Patriots from around the country will descend on the Washington D.C. Mall, May 16th, 2014 to petition their government for a redress of grievances.
Megyn Kelly interviews Dinesh D’Souza at Cliven Bundy’s Ranch 4/18/2014.
Filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza traveled to Cliven Bundy’s ranch in Bunkerville, Nev., on Friday to embark on a “fact-finding” mission. Prior to attending a “big rally” made up of hundreds of the cattle rancher’s supporters, D’Souza planned to talk to some of the people who Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has labeled “domestic terrorists.”
Patriot groups to deliver ‘Articles of Impeachment’ to Congress
Overpasses for America is teaming up with Operation American Spring to deliver “Articles of Impeachment” to the House and Senate on April 22, before a planned rally in Washington D.C. on May 16, Overpasses for America founder James Neighbors told the Examiner.
The Overpasses movement has clearly resonated with many Americans, as the group has almost 80,000 “likes” on their Facebook page at the time of this writing, along with approximately 10-15,000 “active members,” according to Neighbors. This, despite the lack of media coverage.
Operation American Spring (OAS), founded by Colonel Harry Riley, is also a grassroots movement dedicated to the founding fathers’ vision of limited government. On the OAS website, Riley asks Americans to “…bathe this effort in prayer,” and says that the only “agenda” is the “…restoration of constitutional government…”

I am a fighting American. I serve in the effort to guard my country and our way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their defense. I will never surrender of my own free will, nor while I still have the means to resist. If I become a prisoner of my nation’s enemies, be they foreign or domestic, I will keep faith with my fellow prisoners. I will give no information or take part in any action which might be harmful to my comrades… I will make no written statements disloyal to my country and its allies or harmful to our cause. I will never forget that I am a fighting American, responsible for my actions, and dedicated to the principles which make my country strong and free.
I am a fighting American. I am black, white, and every shade between; I am young, old, male, and female. I am a mother, father, son, daughter, husband and wife. I am a fighting American, not because I want to fight, but because it is my duty, it is in my spirit, and because my country, and my comrades under the flag, need me to be.
I am a fighting American because I love my country, and I trust in my God and in the Constitutional Republic of America.
Events over the last few days have shown us that America is wound up like a rubber-band ready to snap. An ever overreaching government is disenfranchising a large portion of America and many are no longer willing to put up with it.
How the West Was Won – 2014
Historic! Feds Forced to Surrender to American Citizens
In an epic standoff that Infowars reporter David Knight described as being like “something out of a movie,” supporters of Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy advanced on a position held by BLM agents despite threats that they would be shot at, eventually forcing BLM feds to release 100 cattle that had been stolen from Bundy as part of a land grab dispute that threatened to escalate into a Waco-style confrontation.
