“Those are just some of the demands that Col. Harry Riley, founder of ‘Operation American Spring,’ said he’ll ask the Obama administration to adhere to when militia members and patriots of all sorts arrive in the nation’s capital on Friday and begin demonstrating against a government the group considers to be in violation of the principles established by the founders of the country.”

“We are calling for the removal of Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Nancy Pelosi and Eric Holder as a start toward constitutional restoration…They have all abandoned the US Constitution [and] are unworthy to be retained in a position that calls for servant status.”  Harry Riley

“Riley told Before Its News in January that he expects his Operation American Spring movement will provoke anywhere from 10 million to 30 million Americans to mobilize this week and arrive in DC, where they will participate in a “massive, gigantic effort as a last stand before America moves into a more devastating condition.” Read more.

Democratic voters are more likely than Republicans to say members deserve re-election, 28-22 percent, while independents (16 percent) are the least likely to support incumbents.” Read more.

“The United States has been unable to develop a clear national policy about the Arab Spring largely because Washington does not fully understand what’s happening in the Middle East. The term, “Arab Spring” is itself misleading.

The changes over the past 20 months have produced a fundamental transformation of the region – but not in the way most outside observers anticipated: They reflect the replacement of the dominant Arab national identity by a more Islamic identity. This change has been evolving for more than 40 years and did not begin in January 2011 with the demonstrations across the Middle East.” Read more.

“The American Spring has been championed by Tea Party Nation, many militia-oriented organizations and a handful of patriot groups online. But others, including a number of conservative outlets, have criticized the event for bearing a name which suggests that it seeks a similar end to the “springs” which have taken place in a number of Middle Eastern countries in recent years.

“But American Spring organizers insist that violence is not part of their mission and even released a list of “rules of engagement” for the protest calling on participants to “leave your guns and ammo within the safe proximity of a free state,” follow all of the rules of the road while in D.C. and comply with all of the Constitutional requests of local authorities.

“In a press release, American Spring’s Terry Trussel said that accusations that American Spring is an effort to spark violence ‘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.’

‘[H]ow 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,’ Trussel asked.” Read more.

Dispelling the myths and rumors that are being spread about Operation American Spring

With a movement the size of OAS we expect to be attacked.  For this reason we started the OAS Rumor Mill to dispel any false reporting.  Col Riley himself will post responses to all false rumors  so that people can have faith in the movement.

Q: I have seen around that this will be an armed event, is that true?
Col. Harry: Absolutely No Weapons. This will be a 100% peaceful event and we strongly advise against any weapons!

Q: I see more than one “official” Facebook page for this event, which one is the official page:
The Official event page AND discussion forums for OAS can be located below:
Use these links to navigate Operation American Spring (OAS)resources

Q: I heard you weren’t taking donations and now I see the Tea Party taking donations in your name.
Col. Harry: We’re aware what the Tea Party is doing, however we ARE NOT officially tied with ANYONE who is taking donations! OAS is a 100% volunteer event and we are not asking for donations. We will put anyone willing to help others get to D.C. in touch with those who need help. It will be between the giver/need to conclude their action.

Q: I have a situation, I’ve been told you work for the NSA.
Col Harry: This rumor is false. I worked at NSA for a number of years. I retired in 1992, was debriefed, my security clearances have obviously expired. I have absolutely no contact, no relationship with NSA. This is just another misinformation ploy to side-track OAS. If you want to get a reflection of what I’m about, google Northwest Florida Daily News…I’m sure they have archives of letters I’ve sent over the last 20 years.

Q: IF YOU HAVE HEARD ABOUT OPERATION AMERICAN SPRING…..YOU MUST KNOW THAT GENERAL VALLELY WAS CALLING SHOTS AS I WAS TOLD IN THE GROUP TO COLONEL HARRY RILEY…..
Col Harry: False. As military men, we communicate. When General Vallely receives questions about OAS, he refers the individual or group to me for OAS action.

Q: I feel you should know that the page you had on the PAN site (Patriot Action Network) has been scrubbed. When I spoke to Darla the administrator, she informed me that your message was one of violence and it was against their policy.
Col Harry: Sorry to learn of PAN misunderstanding. Every fiber of OAS being is geared toward a non-violent, unarmed, peaceful, action as guaranteed by our US Constitution.

Q: It is being spread around there is tension between Tea Party elements and Operation American Spring(OAS). That Tea Party participation in Operation American Spring is not wanted or involved.
Col Harry: Nothing could be farther from the truth. We endorse Tea Party support and have Tea Party groups in support of OAS. Misinformation, elements attempting to divide patriots…don’t let it happen. Come to PFA if you hear a rumor.

Q: I see additions some are saying is included in the OAS mission, e.g. 9th and 10th Amendment agenda?
Col Harry: Here is the OAS mission: Mission: Restoration of Constitutional government, rule of law, freedom, liberty “of the people, for the people, by the people” from despotic and tyrannical federal leadership. We will not get into side agendas.

Q: I viewed a media announcement by Bobby Powell, that OAS was a Satanic operation.
Col Harry: False. Those who judge will also be judged. “…I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Cor12:10

Q: I have heard that OAS has partnered with Occupy (as in those who set up criminal camps in DC/NYC/et al), is this true?  Rumor that Van Jones has co-opted OAS is pure misinformation…don’t fall for stuff until you seek facts.
COL Harry:  OAS and OWS are in no way related…the rumors are so great that if anyone walked near OWS during their event, that individual would be part of OWS…ridiculous.

Q: During phase I can you guarantee patriots will be risk free of harm?
COL Harry:  We can’t guarantee you won’t die in an accident on the way to D.C. any more than we can guarantee anything in D.C.  Freedom is not free.

Self-styled revolutionary patriots plan to converge on Washington, D.C., this week to drive President Barack Obama and disloyal lawmakers out of office.

“We are calling for the removal of Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Nancy Pelosi, and Eric Holder as a start toward constitutional restoration,” said retired Army Col. Harry Riley, leader of the Operation American Spring protest group. “They have all abandoned the US Constitution, are unworthy to be retained in a position that calls for servant status.”

Operation American Spring aims to pressure those lawmakers who remain – or are replaced by officials of their own choosing – “to sponsor and pass very Constitutionally crafted State legislation to dissolve the size, powers, scope and spending of the U.S. Government by 2/3rds.”

The activists say they expect 10 million to 30 million like-minded Americans to join them Friday in the nation’s capital for a rally patterned after Occupy Wall Street and “Arab Spring” protests.

They also plan a sister event the same day in Bunkerville, Nevada, where militia groups have gathered to support scofflaw rancher Cliven Bundy in his dispute with the federal government.

Organizers also anticipate “incremental nullification” by state legislatures of “all withholding taxes, employment taxes, employer taxes, and income taxes.”

“This will effectively DOUBLE the size of ALL American Middle Class family weekly paychecks and cause our local city and town economies to boom,” the group promises on its Facebook page.

Tea Party Nation promoted Operation American Spring last month in an email to its members from founder Judson Phillips, who hinted at a violent response from the federal government, and sent invitations in January to the protest.

The organizers of Operation American Spring don’t really expect their demonstration to dislodge some of the nation’s top elected officials.

At least, not right away.

“When a large chunk of the populace is saying you’re not getting the job done and you have to step down, the House and the Senate have to elect new leadership, that should send a message,” said Alex Coffey, who identified himself as marketing director for the group but insisted he was just a “foot soldier.”

The organization plans to launch a sustained, Occupy Wall Street-style demonstration Friday in Washington, D.C., to voice their concerns about the direction of the country and its leadership.

“We’re not trying to overthrow anything, we’re just saying ‘we the people’ should have the ability to address our grievances,” Coffey told The Raw Story.

However, group members have been asking their representatives to draft articles of impeachment based on alleged wrongdoing by Obama in Benghazi, modifications made without congressional approval to the Affordable Care Act, and IRS targeting of conservative groups.

“Without a doubt, that’s a must,” Coffey said of impeachment. “We’re not going to go out there and shove him out of office, that’s silliness.”

Over the long term, Coffey said, the group anticipates the “incremental nullification” over the next five years by state legislatures of all federally imposed taxes, and some members are urging their state lawmakers to call a convention of the states to amend the Constitution.

“I look at my oath of enlistment – there’s no expiration date on that,” said Coffey, a 15-year military veteran who now works as an information technology contractor for the Department of Defense.

Group members have claimed anywhere from 10 million to 30 million people will show up in the capital to demand the removal of President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Attorney General Eric Holder, Sens. Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell, and Reps. John Boehner and Nancy Pelosi.

The protest is named and patterned after the “Arab Spring” uprising that overturned the Egyptian government.

“Operation American Spring is like a firewall to stop the noise and slow things down, like a corporation bringing in a new CEO for a change of direction,” Coffey said.

Where similar protests intended to drive Obama from office ended the same day they began, Operation American Spring expects many participants to stick around until their presence is noticed.

“If somehow, with the snap of a finger, these knuckleheads in Congress started caring about the American people, people would see that and businesses would see that, and the economy would turn around,” Coffey said.

Coffey recognizes 10 million participants would be a “lofty goal,” but he said the figure was based on the unverified estimate that 3 percent of Americans participated in the Revolutionary War and also inspired the name of an anti-government extremist group that would refuse to voluntarily disarm.

Operation American Spring organizers, however, insist participants disarm before coming to Washington, which bars the possession of firearms in public.

“The Communist forces that control Washington DC do not recognize the 2nd Amendment and have banned all weapons and ammunition from the district,” the group says in its rules of engagement. “Do not give them the opportunity to arrest you and prosecute you. Leave your guns and ammo within the safe proximity of a free state. When the government is changed constitutionally so will the laws in Washington DC.”

The group instead urges participants to carry Bibles and copies of the Constitution, although the rules of engagement twice mention that protesters may defend themselves.

“Of course your 2nd Amendment Rights are God given and no man can disarm you but at this point we must follow the rules laid out by the Communists until we vote them out of office,” the rules state. “You do have a right to self defense.”

Coffey said he flatly denied a request by one group from out west that wanted to march into Washington carrying firearms, and he advocated revisions to the rules of engagement to de-emphasize the right to self defense.

“But hey, you’re not going to be sheeple and get run over,” he said. “You have a right to protect yourself, just not with weapons.”

Groups from California, Florida, and South Carolina have already arrived in northern Virginia, Coffey said, and some of their members attended his local chapter’s weekly meeting Wednesday night to discuss escape routes in case of trouble during the demonstration.

“We fully expect there to be agitators, you know, starting trouble,” Coffey said.

He said he’s met with members of Occupy Wall Street, as well as the Anonymous hacktivist group, and found they shared common concerns – particularly the government-backed bailout of banks deemed “too big to fail.”

“I lean conservative, but I’m not so brainwashed not to see the other side has good ideas,” said Coffey, who conceded he wouldn’t budge in his opposition to abortion. “I won’t compromise on that, but there are a lot of areas I can see the other side of and find common ground.”

In particular, he said his Christian faith encouraged him to support a stronger safety net for the most vulnerable Americans.

“It pierced my heart, broke my heart when Obama said we’re no longer a Christian nation,” Coffey said.

He said his local chapter opened each meeting with a prayer, and his study of historical documents had convinced him that the United States was founded on Judeo-Christian values.

“It’s only been since post-9/11 that we’ve even had this issue of people being slighted,” Coffey said. “I wouldn’t go to a Muslim country and try to change the DNA of that country.”

Still, he insists that Operation American Spring is not explicitly Christian.

“God doesn’t exclude and we don’t exclude,” said Coffey. “Thank God we’re not all white. I like a little color.”

Coffey said he became active in Operation American Spring because some of its mission statements resonated with him, and he’s cautiously optimistic about what it will accomplish.

“All the yelling and shouting you think you’re going to do at OAS won’t be as effective as collectively coming together and saying, ‘Lord, we beseech you,’” he said.
