Operation American Spring has been looming in the dark recesses of the Patriot Movement for almost a year now and as the days drag ever closer (t-minus 2 days and counting) many of us are more than a little curious to see how everything will play out. It is beyond obvious that OAS, lead by retired Army Col. Harry Riley, is intended to be a coup, but one that its organizers would like the rest of the country to believe is a transfer of power based on the founding fathers’ intent. All one has to do is look at the operation’s timeline to see how unconstitutional and how unbelievable unrealistic it is.
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 US 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 10 million 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 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 will appoint replacements for positions vacated consistent with established constitutional requirements.
Phase 3 – Those with the principles of a West, Cruz, Dr. Ben Carson, Lee, DeMint, Paul, Gov Walker, Sessions, Gowdy, Jordan, should 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.
Even the Oath Keepers have categorically rejected the operation and have given orders to members to not represent the organization if they intend on participating. It seems humorous how people who call themselves constitutionalists would demand the overthrow of democratically elected officials. I am not saying that this country wouldn’t be a better place if the likes of Obama and Pelosi were removed from office, but not in this way.
Everyone who has read my blog knows that I believe that one day the necessity for violent resistance will make it impossible for patriots to stand idly by. There will be a tipping point where the government will take it one step too far and Americans will need to defend their rights with arms, but Operation American Spring is not that time. Firstly, OAS is not a defensive action but an offensive one that aims to remove people who were elected by their constituency and replace them with “better” leaders. First of all, it is silly to even think it would work for the simple reason that none of these officials would even consider accepting their new roles because it would be treason to do so. Most of the people slotted to “assume positions of authority” are current serving legislators whom have achieved their positions legally. Why would they risk their pensions and freedom to accept a leadership role in a new government that would not be recognized in the USA let alone by the rest of the world?
Secondly, the whole idea that a peaceful protest would result in leaders in senior political positions leaving their posts is laughable. Our leaders have instituted draconian laws regarding indefinite detention and invasive wire tapping to prevent things like this from happening (sorry folks it is not about the “War on Terror”). If (and that is a HUGE if) OAS takes off and 10 million people do show up, before anyone realizes something went wrong, protest organizers will have been whisked way to some black ops prison where none of them will ever be heard from again. I personally don’t even think it will go that far because if the government was even slightly worried that this will succeed, guys like Col. Riley would already be dead or detained. Did everyone forget that we are all domestic terrorists?
Finally, and what I believe is most damning, is that the occupy movement was tried and it failed miserably. What makes the organizers of OAS think that they will be any more successful? The occupy protesters had dozens of cities and tens of thousands of active participants while the estimates that I have been hearing is that OAS will bring in low thousands or possibly only hundreds of people. The idea that ten million Americans will drop everything to join a protest in DC is beyond implausible.
Operation American Spring is barely worth mentioning for the simple fact that it will most likely wither on the vine like so many other planned revolts. The fact that the government isn’t taking this seriously should show everyone that OAS is destined to fizzle before it even begins. That being said, there is some small part of me that would be interested to see what would happen if it did in fact played out like the organizers say it will. How would the American people react to a small group of patriots comprising of around 3% of the population dictating how the country is run? How will our government react to a group of Americans who refuse to do what they are told? Oh well, I guess I only have a couple more days to wait and see!
Warning: I would like to mention that there is a large group of people out there who believe that OAS has been allowed to continue for a far more nefarious reason then the government doesn’t take it seriously. There are those who believe that the whole operation is in fact a way to only get a list of people who would be a threat to the country in the event of martial law. Additionally, some are concerned that it might also have been allowed to proceed as a way to build additional support for governmental action against the Patriot Movement. Americans are easily frightened and an attempted coup would all guarantee more unconstitutional laws and possibly open hunting on patriot groups. Everyone who considers themselves to be patriots should keep an eye on what happens over the next several days just in case.
