‘Operation American Spring’ Aims To Bring 10 Million ‘Patriots’ To D.C. On Friday

The idea behind Operation American Spring is simple: the restoration of constitutional government, the rule of law, freedom, and liberty. The plan calls for the removal from office of President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), and Attorney General Eric Holder. And that’s just to start.

The organizers of the operation have picked Friday to kick things off. Phase one of “Operation American Spring – Beginning Of Tyranny Housecleaning” calls for as many as 10 million “patriots” to 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,” according to the organizers’ website. Phase two calls for at least a million of the protestors to remain in Washington until the aforementioned officials are forced from office. Phase three hopes to see a governing tribunal made up of a who’s who of conservative icons.

“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,” according to the website.

As Raw Story reported on Tuesday, the leader of Operation American Spring, retired Army Col. Harry Riley, gave in an interview in January explaining his group’s plans.

“It is unclear how this will all unravel but 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,” Riley told Beforeitsnews.com. “They have all abandoned the US Constitution, are unworthy to be retained in a position that calls for servant status.”

The interviewer brought up past protest actions, “Ride For The Constitution” plan last year, that fizzled out when it came time to realize their plans. Riley said he and his group had learned from the truckers’ example.

“We learn from every event,” he said. “I don’t agree the the Truckers effort was a total failure. They have paved the way, we will expand on it…the difference is that Operation American Spring will not be just a ride through Washington, D.C., we will be there in massive numbers and intend to remain there until acceptable solutions are gained.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.
