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 Operation
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.
These Are The Times That Try Men’s Souls – OAS Update
THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. Thomas Pain: December 1716.
Thomas Pain wrote those words at a time when Americans were facing what was at the time the most powerful nation on Earth. Today we are once again facing the most powerful nation on Earth, one that has the potential to become the most tyrannical regime to ever exist. This time it is the government of United States of America. Today we face our own government.
April 2014, A Rancher Stands In Nevada – A Renewed Reflection Of American’s Rejecting Lawlessness.
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 State ownership for over 100 years. All the details are unclear but what is clear is the US Government has been encroaching on ranchers, driving them out of livelihood for several decades, and capturing land, using fictitious environmental rationale in the area a few miles northeast of Las Vegas Nevada.
The standoff by federal Bureau of Land Management agents at the Bundy Ranch developed as a threat over the last week or so. Facing hundreds of heavily armed Federal agents the last surviving rancher in the territory refused to back down. The conflict escalated to the point of arrests, agents tazering citizens, road blocks, First Amendment free speech zones, snipers located in the hills, rounding up Bundy cattle as well as other livestock, and generally creating a siege around the Bundy property vicinity Bunkerville, Nevada.
The escalation of tensions continued until Saturday April 12, 2014. Late in the day, the most dramatic, turn-around of the potential life threatening event came to an end…the Feds backed down! Sighting concerns over the safety of their own men, but never once voicing concerns for the lives or safety of the rancher or his family.
Does it represent a tsunami that may be overtaking America…?
What was the critical factor that brought the power of the federal government lawlessness to a halt; a retreat, perhaps temporary, in Bunkerville, Nevada? The answer is a power higher than man, the love of freedom, liberty, the power of some thousands of peaceful American citizens rejecting Gestapo type activity. 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 sworn forces.”
American’s who have had enough of the heavy hand of tyrannical government arrived…men, women, ordinary citizens, standing in aid of the immediate oppressed and for generations of future children and grandchildren in America.
The Bunkerville event should be a signal for all America and the planned Operation American Spring event in several ways. One; The effectiveness of a large, determined, peaceful assembly of “We the People” does have an effect on and the people can take back control of the out-of-control federal government if we are willing to stand up. 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.
Rest assured that the battle over this ranchers land is far from over, the federal government intends to complete the takeover of the land, and one way or another this rancher will be removed just as all the others before him.
Operation America Spring reflects a much larger challenge but the potential impact is similar to the results carried out by God fearing, constitutional loving, determined patriots in Nevada. Our brave “We the People” in Nevada have refreshed true hope of freedom, liberty, and a reversal of tyrannical behavior in government.
On May 16tth, 2014 Operation American Spring will present another opportunity to stand down tyrants in Washington, D.C. We The People can stop the tyranny stemming from this out of control government, but only if they are willing to stand and defend their own freedoms and liberty.
May all be so bold to mirror our Nevada brethren’s courage for freedom in Washington, D.C. May 16th, 2014.
Harry Riley, COL, USA, Ret

Liberty won a battle today.
Liberty won a battle today. However, the fight is not over and We the People must not be fooled into believing that it is. The Federal government has a long memory and I am sure they are right now readying for round-two.

Breaking: Sen. Harry Reid Behind BLM Land Grab of Bundy Ranch
Kit Daniels Infowars.com April 11, 2014
The Bureau of Land Management, whose director was Sen. Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) former senior adviser, has purged documents from its web site stating that the agency wants Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s cattle off of the land his family has worked for over 140 years in order to make way for solar panel power stations.
Colonel Riley Speaks to the Surprise Tea Party Patriots 2-4-2014
TO: All Patriots (male, female, civilian, military, truckers, bikers, militias, veterans, old, young, every American that loves freedom and liberty)
Mission: Restoration of Constitutional government, rule of law, freedom, liberty “of the people, by the people, for the people” from despotic and tyrannical federal leadership.
- Millions of Americans will participate.
- American veterans and patriots are energized to end the tyranny, lawlessness, and shredding of the US Constitution.
- Government is not the target, it is sound; corrupt and criminal leadership must be replaced.
- Those in power will not hesitate to use force against unarmed, peaceful patriots exercising their constitutional rights.
- Patriots may be incarcerated, wounded or god forbid; killed.
There is no hope given today’s technology of secrecy for the effort nor do we want it secret.
Concept of Operations:
Phase 1 – Field millions, as many as ten million, Patriots who will assemble in a peaceful, non-violent, physically unarmed (Spiritually/Constitutionally armed), display of unswerving loyalty to the United States of America Constitution and against the incumbent government leadership in Washington D.C., with the mission to replace with law-abiding leadership. Go full-bore, no looking back, steadfast in the mission.
Phase 2 – One million or more of the assembled must be prepared to stay in D.C. as long as it takes to see Obama, Biden, Reid, McConnell, Boehner, Pelosi, and Attorney General Holder resign or be removed from office.
Consistent with the US Constitution, as required, the U.S. Congress will take appropriate action, execute appropriate legislation, deal with vacancies, or U.S. States appoint replacements for positions vacated consistent with established constitutional requirements.
Phase 3 – Principled leaders such as, Former Representative Allen West, Senator Ted Cruz, Doctor. Ben Carson, Senator Mike Lee, Former Senator Jim DeMint, Senator Rand Paul, Governor Scott Walker, Senator Jeff Sessions, Representative Trey Gowdy, Representative Jim Jordan, appointed by their peers, would comprise a tribunal and assume positions of authority to convene investigations, recommend appropriate charges against politicians and government employees to the new U.S. Attorney General appointed by the new President.
*All actions in Phase 2 & 3 will be consistent with the U.S. Constitution.
Date of Operation: “OPERATION AMERICAN SPRING – Beginning Of Tyranny Housecleaning, May 16, 2014, completion to be determined
We are past the point of no return, thus must move forward with an effort to save our nation, as there is no other choice. We are asking, pleading with you, and any others that have resources, national voices, email lists, blogs, FB, Twitter, to call for a non-violent American Spring May 16 2014 in Washington D.C. We must appeal to ten million and more American patriots to come and stay in Washington, D.C. to stop the White House and Congress from total destruction of the United States. It’s now or never. God help us.
…..the law of nature rules. A fluffy, cuddly lamb gets eaten by a mean old wolf is not an illegal or immoral event…the law of nature. When some greedy, self-serving occupant of the White House or Congress, or elements outside America, is threatening our existence, our freedom, our liberty, our Constitution, our life resources, our America, then we fight back to destroy the threat and there is nothing immoral or illegal about it. When the government becomes lawless, then “We the People” no longer are obligated to follow the government……there is no law when government picks and chooses for political purposes or personal agenda. At this time the government is performing as a lawless entity……
A duck cannot be turned into a fox; an elephant cannot be turned into a flea; the laws of nature will not permit. Likewise, a nation ordained and principled by the laws of nature, sovereign, free, with liberty for all cannot naturally become a nation guided by royalty, decrees, tyranny, elitist, self-serving criminals. The former has proven desirable, the latter has proven human pain.
“We can become a nation guided by royalty IF “We the People” beguiled by the government in surrender to our lusts for that which we have not earned –for what is not natural –if we have become intoxicated by unbroken success” as Lincoln proclaimed in March 30 ,1863 call for fasting, humiliation, and prayer–we can very easily heap to ourselves leaders, and with itching ears, be turned from the Truth to become enslaved by the LIE.”
The United States of America (elephant) while embracing the “LIE” is teetering on the abyss of becoming a sniveling, blood sucking, undesirable nation (flea).
OPERATION AMERICAN SPRING will be a gigantic step in removing the flea infestation that is sucking the blood out of America.
We see no reasonable, hopeful sign that indicates there are honorable, loyal, mature, critical thinking, experienced people in government that understands the chaos about to rain down on America, nor do they care….our only hope is that “we the people” call, organize, and draw a few million patriots to stay in D.C. for an “American Spring”. It would be the catalyst to draw the line and bring to a conclusion a decision on the out of control government, one way or the other. America will rise up or surrender………for me, I only go to my knees in the presence of God Almighty………..my knees will not touch the surface as a result of some piss ant occupant of the White House or a corrupt legislator, or outside element…I will fall to my death standing if necessary.
There is not much time and the only planning necessary is to select a starting date, which we have done, and then show up in Washington, D.C. on that date, and plan to stay for the duration. The goal is restoring the United States of America Constitution as the law of the land, removing the lawless leadership. Will this be a cake-walk? No, it will be painful, and some people may die because the government will not be non-violent; some of us will end up in a cell, and some may be injured. If that’s what it will take to save our nation, do we have any choice?Freedom loving Americans will say there is no choice, we must begin the second American Revolution. Not with guns, but with millions of Americans demanding a return to constitutional government and the resignation of Obama, Biden, Reid, McConnell, Boehner, Pelosi, and Holder as a start…then the constitutional restoration process can begin. An AMERICAN SPRING can be avoided only if the above mentioned officials resign.
Will our national patriot leaders step forward and declare, “Send Me!”, I’ll lead? There are millions of veterans and patriots ready to follow and have said “I will go”.
I urge all organizations, groups, particularly veterans and military retirees begin planning to visit Washington, D.C beginning May 16, 2014. Keep tuned to oas2014.com for updates and guidance.
Please bathe this effort in prayer as there is no personal agenda or gain save liberty, freedom, and restoration of constitutional government for “We the People“.

1 Samuel 17:29
King James Version (KJV)
29 And David said, What have I now done? Is there not a cause?
The last rancher Cliven Bundy, in the northern part of Nevada looses everything. But that’s not the end of the story.
What is really at stake here is America.
The federal government has taken Bundy’s cattle, but they have also taken nearly all of the state of Nevada. The local sheriff says he can’t fight them, the governor says he has no power or authority. The federal government has obliterated the sovereignty of the State of Nevada. And a judge says We The People have no power or authority.
The war against American citizen’s has truly started ( we already knew that). But this is still only the beginning. This is what we can all expect from now on.

These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their county; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny like hell is not easily conquered yet we have this consolation with us, the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value. ~Thomas Pain
If men through fear, fraud or mistake, should in terms renounce and give up any essential natural right, the eternal law of reason and the great end of society, would absolutely vacate such renunciation; the right to freedom being the gift of God Almighty, it is not in the power of Man to alienate this gift, and voluntarily become a slave. ~ John Adams
It is the duty of all men in society, publicly, and at stated seasons, to worship the SUPREME BEING, the great Creator and Preserver of the universe. And no subject shall be hurt, molested, or restrained, in his person, liberty, or estate, for worshipping GOD in the manner most agreeable to the dictates of his own conscience; or for his religious profession or sentiments; provided he doth not disturb the public peace, or obstruct others in their religious worship. ~ John Adams
If, from the more wretched parts of the old world, we look at those which are in an advanced stage of improvement, we still find the greedy hand of government thrusting itself into every corner and crevice of industry, and grasping the spoil of the multitude. Invention is continually exercised, to furnish new pretenses for revenues and taxation. It watches prosperity as its prey and permits none to escape without tribute. ~ Thomas Paine
Among the natural rights of the Colonists are these: First, a right to life; Secondly, to liberty; Thirdly, to property; together with the right to support and defend them in the best manner they can. These are evident branches of, rather than deductions from, the duty of self-preservation, commonly called the first law of nature. ~ Samuel Adams
We look forward to the time when the power to love will replace the love of power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace. ~ William Ellery
The deliberate union of so great and various a people in such a place, is without all partiality or prejudice, if not the greatest exertion of human understanding, the greatest single effort of national deliberation that the world has ever seen. ~ John Adams
