Barack Obama has committed treason against the United States of America. He has released from captivity avowed enemies of the United States, the barbaric, inhumane murders below, and to make it worse, he has used the excuse to release them as obtaining the release of an American citizen who is a deserter of the United States Army.

Gitom Terrorists

What has Congress done so far? Absolutely nothing of consequence. Leadership in the US House of Representatives are staggering around trying to find their a.. from a hole in the ground.

Thank God the State of Virginia has shown the rest of America the “light” that is the beginning stages of removing our nation from the darkness descending over us by voting out one of the top republicans, Rep Eric Cantor.

Operation American Spring (OAS) has been calling, and continues to do so, the removal of Obama, Biden, Reid, McConnell, Boehner, Pelosi, and Holder……..we take satisfaction that God has already worked through “boots on the ground” in removing Rep Cantor. Pray for another miracle that will take out the rest….but won’t happen without America taking action. God will not do the work that men and women are capable of accomplishing.

Pray that OAS and others will continue steadfast in our efforts to demand Congress return to their constitutional responsibility, honor their oaths, recommit themselves to Founding Father principles, and “we the people” continue to demand our rights as ordained to us from our Creator.

Let is now commit to removing the “establishment Senator” in Mississippi.

Finally. Barack Obama must GO………he has stepped over the line that no citizen of the United States can tolerate…if your US Senator or US Representative says anything different, makes more excuses, then they have to GO……..we’re fed up, we’ve had it with gutless, cowardly, self-serving lawlessness in Washington, D.C.

Let’s make a list of those who reject the US Constitution, those we will fight tooth and nail against…no elected official will given a pass to reelection… your duty at

Bowe Bergdahl’s Other Message

The questionable circumstances of Bowe’s imprisonment and subsequent release, and President Obama’s inadvisable and lawless actions, aside, Bow Bergdahl offers a different message.

According to Robert Bergdahl, his son claimed to be ‘ashamed to be American’, and that our military is being duped into committing evil acts on innocent people.  What Robert Bergdahl failed to say about our military is they take an oath and when any soldier believes he/she receives orders that are unlawful, they refuse.  Government leaders such as Obama give the orders. As an example, Dr. LTC Terry Lakin refused Obama’s illegal order to return the Middle East on principle and suffered the consequences.  Mr. Bergdahl also failed to mention the Taliban’s evil atrocities are so heinous, it is more than a stretch of words to suggest American soldiers are the menace.  Those words shook me to the core, not because I took them as treacherous, but because I suddenly realized—I agree with him to the extent that everyone suffers when politicians place greed and power before human suffering.

As a Vietnam Vet (not ‘era’, I was there) I relate to Bergdahl’s attitude; I, too, was ashamed of some of the things I saw ‘America’ do. While involved in our Chu Hoi (Open Arms) program, where we offered an acre of farmland and a water buffalo to any VC or RVN soldier who would ‘come over to our side’ after surrendering his weapon, I saw those who trusted our promise and turned over their guns to us, tortured and interrogated by our CIA agents, then executed.

I was deceived by my government and my military superiors, just as our forces, today, are being lied to, made to suffer, and required to subjugate their individual rights for political expediency and correctness. This is not my ‘America’. Although raised in the principle that ‘my country, right or wrong’, what I saw in ‘Nam was so wrong, the only way I could deal with it was to block it out. My parents also taught me my word was my bond, and here my country was practicing institutional mendacity. I can only imagine what our Middle East warriors witness under our present duplicitous, traitorous regime.

Engaging in specious wars, committing and sacrificing our innocents to mortal danger without purpose or honorable objective, is not American—and is not acceptable. Those we elect or appoint to positions of leadership and who betray their public trust, do so under the cover of fraud and deceit. But their treasonous acts, reprehensible as they are, do not approach the treason committed by ordinary Americans who sit idly by every day, as their leaders betray their oaths of office and public trust with no public call for accountability or prosecution.

For those who feign ignorance and inaction with, ‘what can one man do?’, ‘you can’t fight city hall’, or ‘I didn’t realize it was so bad’—your excuses don’t wash! Willful distraction or ignorance is no excuse for failure in duty. Decades of subversive assaults on our political awareness only stand as testament to our national, self-induced inanity, and lack of resolve to protect and defend our Constitution and our Republic. SHAME ON US! We’ve capitulated the right to call ourselves American, because the instant WE betray OUR Oath, we cease to BE American. Our only chance to resolve our duplicity is by repentance to the values of our birthright.

Operation American Spring gives us a single, polarizing, opportunity to multiply the ‘one man’ quandary into a powerful force of unity in purpose. OAS is the politically non-denominational effort to restore our Republic to Constitutional constraints and principles. OAS opens arms to all parties, every group, every association, regardless of focus, so long as the ultimate goal is national unity and Constitutional restoration; and that they promise to follow OAS’s commitment to non-violent change.

We invite all to join us in a national revival to Constitutional principles. That includes a restoration of our personal commitment to integrity and honor; to simply ‘do the right thing’, especially as it applies to our military. America’s armed forces take great pride in their long history of heroic and admirable accomplishments, bringing opportunities for liberty, and freedom from oppression to millions around the world.

In conclusion, I do not see ‘America’ as the villain. The threat we face is the miscreant cabal of totalitarian ideologues who have illegally and deceptively assumed control of our government. My America would never commit such egregious crimes against God’s or nature’s laws.

My America will regain its foothold as the ‘shining city on the hill’, but it requires our help. Our duty to God and progeny demands we rebuild our true American culture with a renewed commitment to individual liberty, national integrity, and adherence to God’s law. Our Republic, our very lives, and the world depend on it.

Come be a part of Operation American Spring and The 5.16 Patriots – Flag, Family, Freedom, FUN and Faith Day Picnic.

Read Dan Gray’s thoughts on activism and fun.

Dan Gray

Colonel Harry Riley (Ret.) tasked me with writing a list of scandals and lies our fabulous Federal government has perpetrated upon the American P…eople. Harry has a habit of asking the impossible.

How can I do justice with even a listing of wrongdoings? Who has time to read an entire library?

And though the details being covered-up by complicit career corruptocrats are crucial, do we really need to know them, in order to know that there’s something dreadfully rotten in the state of American denial? For as I see it, the bigger story is not that sophisticated thugs and gangsters have seized the levers of American power, but that the American People are so complacent about it.

My recent illness, basically my body breaking down after being pushed unmercifully for over a year, gave me time to pull back a bit and ponder the problem. Going from 140-hour work-weeks to a grinding halt for ten days enabled me to look at where we are in a new light.

America is failing. We all know that, we see it everywhere we turn, know the truth of decay in our own lives and those of family, friends and community. We feel the vibe of violations viscerally.

Everyone knows it, yet few take action. This is to be expected, I suppose. After all, most folks are slow to react, unwilling to rock the boat and risk things getting worse than they already are.

But things are getting worse, anyway. So how do we begin to fix things? How do we restore Constitutional limits on government gone wild, authority run amok?image001

Across America, in efforts large and (mostly) small, some pioneers have finally found followers sufficient to take the fight to the enemies of freedom. We attack on all fronts, win some battles, lose most, and the tide of victory continues on the side of those who would rule.

Riley HarryHarry Riley saw, as many see, a need for unity in this war. A requirement to share resources, to make common cause with other freedom-fighters whose basic aims we share, and create a wave of peaceful revolt before we are forced to take up arms against tyrants.

Operation American Spring called for 10 million to come to Washington, D.C., to be a human petition for redress of grievances, to force the foes of freedom from their places using peaceful power. As I said, Harry has a habit of asking the impossible.

Many came, but not enough, not yet. Few remain, but they are dedicated, waiting for reinforcements.

So, what will it take? To get 10 million, I said, you’d need a giant stage with a giant screen, giant speakers and giant stars. A few rock and country acts, some actors and politicians, an entertaining program, and voila, 10 million! But after a day of fun, they’d go home. Little would be accomplished.

But maybe there’s a core of truth there, after all. Think about what does work. In our communities, there are always festivals and fund-raisers for worthy causes, that attract folks in their thousands, that raise money and awareness. What makes them work? Why are we willing to commit to small causes, but seemingly unable to come together for the big one?

The answer is FUN. Sure, folks come out for a cause, to clean a park, to save animals, to help a sick kid. They protest against injustice and insist on decency. But what DRAWS them is FUN. Picnic

Few can sustain sorrow; rarer still rage. We feel these things, sure, but for most, it’s exhausting to maintain. For most, motivation is not found in negative emotion. It’s not enough to point out problems. What we need to do is show solutions, and make it easy for folks to join in the FUN feeling of the fight.

Think of what resonated with the American People in the past year. It was not rallies and marches. It was not hearings and court cases. It was not scandal and legislation. It was Chik-Fil-A, Duck Dynasty, and Paula Deen. Leno’s lighthearted jabs at power achieved more than any earnest protest. Fast food, reality TV, home cooking and comedians. These are FUN!

So, it may sound silly, but what we need is face-painting, arcade games, dunk-tanks, music and FOOD.

We need lightness and humor, wholesome attitudes and smiles. We need local activities that promote the central theme of Liberty, that enable folks to come together where they live. We need copycat celebrations across America, where the serious messages are made palatable to scared sheep. We need those local efforts to wake and motivate leaders to come to Washington and set things right. And there is plenty of foul corruption to be found at home, too.

I do not denigrate folks for being followers, few are cut-out to go first, to take risks. That is the way of things. But if we are good leaders, we must prove our cause to be more than just honest, more than merely serious. It must be FUN, or few will follow. And what is a leader who marches alone?

Transcript: “Operation American Spring began on May 16, 2014. It’s important to note that this was one of the most successful moves toward passive revolution seen since the colonial era. Consisting within the movement are millions of dedicated patriots from across the country. Led by multiple retired and current military officials, the goals of American spring were clear. Field an army of peaceful volunteers to occupy Washington until the establishment of both parties resign. Unfortunately due to the economic bonds of slavery our country endures as compared to others, the millions they had hoped to field were unintentionally held by the monetary coercion that prevents so many from actively participating in mass protests. In place of the intended millions, DC was occupied by thousands. Up until May 16, there was little mainstream coverage MORE….

The Obama Scandals

Updated 05/01/14


POTUS & AFRICOM alone had authority to give Stand Down order.

Even though the CIA station chief sent a message to the WH in regards to Benghazi attack that it was ‘Not-slash-not spontaneous demonstration,’ the decision to call it such and blame it on a video went forward. Americans under attack were abandoned, then America was lied to.

Benghazi was the result of a planned terrorist attack on 9/11/12.  There was no COMMUNIST FLAG smalldemonstration nor did it have anything to do with a video. That is not an opinion, it is a fact born out of documents, emails, and testimony. The attack lasted for almost eight hours with repeated calls for help. There was available help from several locations but they were each told to Stand Down. The result of that order ended with the deaths or our Ambassador and three other brave Americans. It was also known by the State Dept., CIA and the WH within at most hours (more plausibly minutes via Live Drone feed) that it was a terrorist attack. In Benghazi it was known immediately. Talking points on this went through 12 edits.

Obama, Hillary, Carney and Rice ALL went in front of the cameras and did knowingly, deliberately, and repeatedly lie to all of America. They claimed it arose from a demonstration over an offensive YouTube video.  This infuriated the Libyan president that was already on record that it was a terrorist attack, and as a result delayed the FBI from ground access to the site for three weeks.

Five days later Rice ran the Sunday circuit with this lie. Obama appeared on David Letterman with this lie, and later on Sept. 25 Obama continued this lie in his speech to the UN  ”There is no video that justifies an attack on an Embassy.” As late as mid-May, 2013, Obama claims to have had the same knowledge of what happened in Benghazi five days later as Rice described in her Sunday circuit.

Obama and Hillary also spent our tax dollars to create and broadcast in Pakistan their own video apologizing for the YouTube video that had nothing to do with the attack. They also had the maker of the YouTube film arrested.

In such a situation in Benghazi, with an Ambassador involved, the protocol would be that the President would give the Stand Down order.  So far, nobody is admitting to giving the Stand Down order.

  • CIA deputy director Michael Morell resigns
  • Discovered by CNN 8/01/13 that dozens of CIA operatives were on the ground in Benghazi during the attack. They are being heavily pressured (and threatened) to keep their mouths shut. Here is the CNN report.
  • First criminal charges filed in August, 2013 - Several suspects have reportedly been charged in the Benghazi attack. The only one named is a Libyan,  Ahmed Abu Khattala.
  • DOJ and State Department are blocking access to survivors of Benghazi attack.

OAS update:

Good Morning Patriots, OAS is now established on the DC Mall for the long haul…….we have leadership that will remain on site in DC for as long …as it takes to revive America to come to the aid of our nation. Everything that’s good, honorable, noble takes work, committment, resolve to meet success. God help OAS as a movement to change America from the destructive path the current Administration and complicit Congress is leading America. Pastor Sylvester Bland, Alex Coffey, Joe Bennett, Roberto Tonizzo and SGM Santini are the nucleus leadership on the ground in D.C. at this time. The on-ground leadership team will be expanded and of course supplemented by our already established strategic PR team, Deb Howard, ,social media team, Susie and all of of us doing our share to bolster our overall message…… has not changed, our mission remains “constitutional restoration”. I will be going back to Florida, Thursday, but will remain active in a leadership role in every way I can effectively support the operation on the ground but not get in the way of success. We all have a role to play, not personal agendas, nor favored positions…it’s a team effort, helping, advising, supporting, but without rancor or trouble making. Those that are willing to saddle up to our mission, provide objective help we welcome. Those that are perpetual whiners, trouble makers will not be tolerated….we’re on a mission. If you can’t help then find some other means to voice frustration. Much sacrifice has already been demonstrated and more will be required…this is not an easy journey we must travel…we didn’t ask for it, but a road that must be traveled. America is in grave danger and only “We the People” can save her now. God bless America and may He be our strength as we continue our struggle against evil in American leadership. Harry Riley, COL, USA, Ret OAS Founder.

Glenn’s Rant


posted by | on Liberty, OAS Fundamentals | Comments Off

What you don’t know about the American Spring movement

On Thursday’s radio program, Glenn encouraged his listeners to take a look into the history of the Spring of Nations that spread across Europe and Latin America in 1848. Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto planted seeds of dissent all around Europe, but it was first published in German on February 21, 1848 and within days insurrection ensued. Fast-forward to today, and a group called Operation American Spring is marching on Washington D.C. On radio this morning, Glenn warned against the dangers of a “spring” movement. more…

COMMENT: When Operation American Spring (OAS) is successful, Glenn won’t be needed anymore. Him and others make money keeping us divided while OAS works to unite Americans.

My response to this show on Glenn’s website keeps getting deleted. Here it is below:

Glenn this is how violent we are. I am a member of Operation American Spring (OAS) and have spent many hours praying on The Mall, one on one, with and for members of OAS and Rolling Thunder. I have seen lives transformed on the Washington D.C. Mall and believe, other than accepting Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, the marriage to my beautiful bride and the birth of my two children, that the experiences on the Mall have been the most meaningful of my life (I am a 15 year Army veteran).

I witnessed a young black teenager confront members of our group, labeling us as Racist, then come back day after day listening to our message and ended up joining our ranks, saying; “I want my friends and family to join in this movement as well”. At the end of the day today in front of the Air and Space museum, I offered him the megaphone and he said to me with a trembling lip; “I have never spoke to a group like this before”. I told him it would be ok and reassured him he was among friends. He, as well as anyone in OAS, outlined the problems with Government today; “They don’t care about us…” Thank you Melvin!!!

Call COL Riley Mr. Beck, you have his number. I believe you have it all wrong; Operation American Spring is about mass and getting 30 million American’s to wake up from their stupor and to give a damn. We knew that day one we would not have 30 million but believe that as time goes on and our message of accountability from our elected leaders will resonate with Americans and that they well respond. I tell our members at our rally site before protesting at the Capitol and White House; “that we first need to change our hearts before we can expect change out of our elected leaders”, and I paraphrase Matthew 7:5, “You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye. People are responding to our message, and I believe in the end we will have a great spiritual awaking in this country like never before. This is what a Spiritually and Constitutionally armed movement looks like.

Members of the Park Service and Capitol Hill police as well as uniformed Secret Service have been helpful and ensured the safety of our members; hats off to them. I know they have a tough job and I respect them for protecting our elected officials.
