American Spring?

Washington Times – A group of self-described revolutionary-style patriots with a million mobilized militia members are heading to downtown Washington, D.C., this week to bring a simple message to political leadership, from President Obama to House Speaker John Boehner: Get out.

They’re called the Operation American Spring — and they’re vowing to oust the likes of Mr. Obama, Mr. Boehner, Attorney General Eric Holder, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Sen. Mitch McConnell, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Vice President Joseph R. Biden, Raw Story reported.

revolt250“We are calling for [their] removal … as a start toward constitutional restoration,” said retired Army Col. Harry Riley, the leader of the group, Raw Story reported. “They have all abandoned the U.S.

Constitution, are unworthy to be retained in a position that calls for servant status.”

The aim of the group, too, is to influence those politicos who aren’t targeted for ouster to “sponsor and pass very constitutionally crafted state legislation to dissolve the size, powers, scope and spending of the U.S. government by two-thirds,” the media outlet reported.

The group expects between 10 million and 30 million similarly thinking Americans to meet them in the capital on Friday for a rally that’s being billed as a sort of “Arab Spring” for Americans.

Meanwhile, the group is holding another event on the same day in Bunerkville, Nev., near cattle rancher Cliven Bundy’s property and in support of his stand-off with the Bureau of Land Management over grazing fees.

The Friday event was promoted by Tea Party Nation.

Mr. Riley said he hopes the event will go forward peaceably, but that so far, peaceful protests haven’t brought citizens much luck. He also said that more than 1 million militia members have already mobilized for the event — and that projections of 10 million to attend aren’t pie in the sky.

“For more than five years, ‘we the people’ have been writing, calling, faxing Congress, the media, screaming in town halls, marching, rallying, demonstrating, petitioning, all to no avail,” he said, Raw Story reported. “Every branch of government looks at ‘we the people’ whom they have taken an oath to serve, as ‘pests,’ interfering with their political agenda, cramping their self-serving, greedy agendas. We have no faith in the ballot box any longer, as many believe this sacred secret box has been compromised.

The odds are not too good on you winning a revolution if you’re too afraid to violate local gun regulations in the Capital city.

10 Million? ….. 10000 max ….. not enough.

Unarmed in DC ….. a waste of a spring weekend

You cant have “Constitution Restoration” anyway without you yourself being willing to violate the Constitutional. You want to forcefully remove the moonbats ….. then let their constituents vote them back in?

  1. You cant have “Constitution Restoration” anyway without you yourself being willing to violate the Constitutional.

    Great thing about freedom of expression. You are above ground feeling safe in your expression. No doubt the party leaderships in Fed likes that too. Being stable and the time it takes to effect any change gives the Fed time to derail any change it does not like. Fed can spot a real patriot leader a mile away and he is prepared for a mass uprising. All the laws needed to deal with any mass social unrest ave already been refined and implemented and with well trained people in reserve that will carry out the Fed’s orders when called. Don’t know about foreign troops but they could come in real handy in certain areas of unrest.

    I have no clue if or when there will be any real change other than what the neo socialist repubs and dems are doing.

  2. So far crowds have numbered, at most, around 300 to 400 people. Jackie Milton, head of the Texas group of Operation American Spring, said bad weather had something to do with it, but the numbers are still disappointing.

    “Now it’s a nice sunny day,” said Milton. “But this is a very poor turnout. It ain’t no millions. And it ain’t looking like there’s going to be millions. Hundreds is more like it.”

    Sounds about right.

    Next time…. kill a bunch of politicians first…. then declare the revolution.
    That will get the masses attention.

    ….. now throw a rally to give away free shit in DC and see how many show up.

  3. This guy is really impressive -- he actually totally gets it. This video should be downloaded and saved as a text-book example of how to handle an interview on this matter. And the reporters are absolute snakes:

  4. This Is How Real Militias Roll

    Libya’s army chief has ordered the deployment of Islamist-led militias to the capital, a day after the storming of the parliament building in Tripoli by a renegade general’s troops.

    Monday’s development paves way for a possible showdown between the militias — which hail from Libya’s western and central regions — and the anti-Islamist troops allied with Gen. Khalifa Hifter, who staged the parliament attack Sunday and said they suspended the Islamist-dominated house, blaming it for empowering Islamic extremists.

    According to a statement posted on the official Facebook page of Libya’s Chief of Staff media office, Nouri Abu Sahmain signed an order to “Libya’s Central Shield” — an umbrella group of powerful militias — to confront “attempts to take over power” in Tripoli.

    Sunday’s move against parliament appeared to be directly challenging the legitimacy of the country’s weak central government three years after the overthrow of dictator Moammar Gadhafi. Libya’s leadership condemned the attack and vowed to carry on.

    On Sunday, a commander in the military police in Libya read a statement announcing the suspension of parliament on behalf of a group led by Gen. Khalifa Hifter, a one-time rebel commander who said the U.S. backed his efforts to topple Gadhafi in the 1990s. Hours earlier, militia members backed by truck-mounted anti-aircraft guns, mortars and rocket fire attacked the parliament building, sending lawmakers fleeing for their lives as gunmen ransacked the legislature.

    Gen. Mokhtar Farnana, speaking on a Libyan television channel on behalf of Hifter’s group, said it assigned a 60-member constituent’s assembly to take over for parliament. Farnana said Libya’s current government would act on as an emergency Cabinet, without elaborating.

    Farnana, who is in charge of prisons operated by the military police, said forces loyal to Hifter carried out Sunday’s attack on parliament. He also said Sunday’s attack on Libya’s parliament was not a coup, but “fighting by the people’s choice.”

    “We announce to the world that the country can’t be a breeding ground or an incubator for terrorism,” said Farnana, who wore a military uniform and sat in front of Libya’s flag.

    Early Monday morning, Libya’s interim government condemned the attack on parliament and largely ignored the declaration by the general’s group.

    “The government condemns the expression of political opinion through the use of armed force,” Libyan Justice Minister Salah al-Marghani said in a statement. “It calls for an immediate end of the use the military arsenal … and calls on all sides to resort to dialogue and reconciliation.”

    Militias that backed the country’s interim government manned checkpoints around the capital late Sunday. Hifter’s forces in Tripoli appeared concentrated around the road to the city’s airport and its southern outskirts.

    The attack on parliament, which al-Marghani said killed two people and wounded more than 50, came after an assault Friday by Hifter’s forces on Islamist militias in the restive eastern city of Benghazi that authorities said killed 70 people. On Sunday, gunmen targeted the Islamist lawmakers and officials Hifter blames for allowing extremists to hold the country ransom, his spokesman Mohammed al-Hegazi told Libyan television station al-Ahrar.

    “This parliament is what supports these extremist Islamist entities,” al-Hegazi said. “The aim was to arrest these Islamist bodies who wear the cloak of politics.”

    The fighting spread to the capital’s southern edge Sunday night and along the airport highway.

    Libya’s army and police rely heavily on the country’s myriad of militias, the heavily armed groups formed around ethnic identity, hometowns and religion that formed out of the rebel factions that toppled Gadhafi. Bringing them under control has been one of the greatest challenges for Libya’s successive interim governments, one they largely failed at as militias have seized oil terminals and even kidnapped a former prime minister seemingly at will.

    In the fighting Sunday, officials believe members of the al-Qaaqaa and Sawaaq militias, the largest in the capital, backed Hifter even though they operate under a government mandate. Al-Qaaqaa posted a statement on its official Facebook page saying it attacked parliament with Sawaaq because lawmakers supported “terrorism.”

    Islamist-backed parliamentary head Nouri Abu Sahmein earlier told Libyan television station al-Nabaa that parliament would convene Tuesday.

    An official with the Libyan Revolution Operation Room, an umbrella group of militias groups in charge of the security in the capital, said the gunmen “kidnapped” some 20 lawmakers and government officials. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief journalists.

    Lawmakers said security officials tried evacuate them before attackers breached the parliament, following warnings the building would be assaulted.

    Libya’s parliament is divided between Islamist and non-Islamist factions, with rival militias lining up behind them. Recently, Islamists backed the naming of a new prime minister amid walkouts from non-Islamists, who said the new government would be illegitimate.

    Those who attacked parliament — and Farnana — have ties to Zintan in Libya’s west and are an anti-Islamist powerhouse in Tripoli. Militias from Misrata, the other dominant force in Tripoli, largely support the Islamists.

    Libya’s new interim prime minister has not yet named a Cabinet. However, lawmaker Khaled al-Mashri told al-Ahrar that attackers wanted to prevent lawmakers from picking a new Cabinet as a list of nominees reached legislators Sunday.

    It’s not clear which militias and political leaders support Hifter, but his offensive taps into a wider disenchantment among Libyans with its virtually powerless government. Backers include members of a federalist group that had declared an autonomous eastern government and seized the region’s oil terminals and ports for months, demanding a bigger share of oil revenue.

    On Saturday, Hifter appeared before journalists in his military uniform and promised he would press on with his Benghazi offensive, despite warnings from the central government. They labelled his moves a coup attempt.

    Hifter, a native of Benghazi, helped Gadhafi overthrow King Idris in 1969. He later served as his military chief of staff, but found himself captured by Chadian forces in the late 1980s. Authorities in Chad later released him and Hifter joined the National Front for the Salvation of Libya, the main Libyan opposition group at the time. Hifter later moved to Virginia and, in interviews with Arab media in the 1990s, described himself as building an armed force with U.S. assistance to “eliminate” Gadhafi and his associates.

    He returned to Libya and briefly served as a commander of its fledging national army after Gadhafi’s death. In February, he remerged in Libya via an online video in which he addressed the nation while wearing his military uniform and standing in front of the country’s flag and a map, proclaiming he intended to “rescue” the nation.

    Authorities described the video as a coup attempt, though he apparently was never arrested. Later, rumors circulated he visited military bases in eastern Libya to rally support before launching his Benghazi offensive Friday.

  5. Would you have really wanted to see 10 million militiamen show up in DC and use force against elected officials?

    As fucked up as our situation is ….. I have to respect people I hate’s right to elect people I hate. I’m sure they’re not real happy I sent Ted Cruz to DC.

    …. I would prefer to not share a Government with people who’s voting preferences are opposed to mine.

    I’m pretty sure terminating New York’s congressional delegation is not going to change New Yorker’s voting patterns in the desired direction.

    I wouldn’t mind cooperating with them on some agreed upon roles for a limited central government such as defense, but I dont like it when half the elected officials can impose legislation that has negative effects on the other half.

    “Restoring”? the Constitution is not the solution. The Constitution, as Amended*, IS the problem.

    I do think organized communal violence is the only real solution …… and that we will once again reach that point of division ….. and like before my side will be outnumbered and on the defensive end of the struggle….. and will probably lose.

    So I cant really honestly say I look forward the beginning of the solution to our unsustainable divisiveness.

    Its fucked up ….. by design.

    But I’m still free. There’s no northern militiamen hiding in my woods. There’s no paramilitary checkpoints on my way to work.

    Like the other 350 million people that didn’t show up in DC to storm congress last weekend ….. I aint got time to revolt….. and it wouldn’t matter if I did.

  6. The idea that 10 million armed citizens are going to go to Washington and overthrow the government is rather simple-minded, don’t you think? Just a couple thousand armed citizens would trigger the worst civil disaster since the Bonus Army (WWI vets) were roused from their tents by MacArthur in 1932.

    The real problem isn’t the morons we elect, it’s the morons that elect them. A dumbed-down electorate is the real problem. I think if we eliminated the present leadership my thought is the replacements would be worse. The solution is a third party, or a series of parties, but the deck is stacked against such arrangements. My hope is enough people have taken a blow to the side of the head since 2012 that they’ll respond to the threat to their health care arrangements. That is my best hope. Obama has lost the independents, he’s lost the Millennials, Hispanics and a good part of the female vote at this time. He’s still strong in the black community, but that’s about all he has. Even dumbed-down people understand they’ve lost what they had -- they did with HillaryCare, and that was just a threat -- it was never carried out.

    In the meantime, could we educate the electorate? Not with the current system. Stupid people, stupid choices. We don’t need to storm Washington, we need to storm the government schools.

  7. Looks like voters in Europe are starting to wake up.

    Some are ……. Not enough to overcome a coalition of the entrenched partisans.

    …. who will now join forces to obstruct the mandate.

  8. I didn’t catch much concerning NZ although couldn’t watch the whole thing and listen to that dreadful accent for an hour. Seemed like a swivel-eyed neo-con Randian from a past age. The problem ain’t the communists dude.

  9. Some say there are different regional accents however it is too subtle. The speaker had a strong Kiwi accent which I find not particularly pleasant to listen to.
    I maybe sound a bit like Elliot Rodger. Have been confused with American and even Irish although most English people recognize me as English but can’t place where from.

    I got off on the wrong foot with the speech when he started going on about how the Americans saved NZ. Just seemed too simple minded as I believe WW2 was engineered by the Western powers, mostly Britain, France and the US for hegemonic/economic reasons resulting in the extinguishing of many millions of the finest people ever born. Surely we could have done things better. Sounds outrageous I know but what are we facing now? Extinction? Something went wrong somewhere.

    An example of it all going wrong:

  10. Interesting study. Applies to the entire West except maybe Switzerland.

    In the United States, our findings indicate, the majority does not rule — at least not in the causal sense of actually determining policy outcomes. When a majority of citizens disagrees with economic elites and/or with organized interests, they generally lose. Moreover, because of the strong status quo bias
    built into the U.S. political system, even when fairly large majorities of Americans favor policy
    change, they generally do not get it.
    ……
    All in all, we believe that the public is likely to be a more certain guardian of its own
    interests than any feasible alternative.

    Everyone needs to be aware of differing interests. Folk who believe deep down that their ancestors were genocided, enslaved and generally screwed over or even just offended by your ancestors are probably not going to be inclined toward working in your best interests. Understandable no? I don’t think that’s being racist or anything, it just makes sense.

    Reading this study, it occurs to me, that one should choose one’s elites with care as one elite individual is worth about 10 million votes.

  11. Everyone’s getting in on the victim game. It’s a war really, claiming victim status or racism to get power.

    Some examples from Canada:

    Responding to the government apology for historic wrongs against Chinese British Columbians

    Speech by Anushka Nagji:

    The story of Canada is not a tale of brave European explorers and a vast untamed wilderness. It is a sordid tale of genocide and colonization, unjust laws, racism, oppression, and exclusion.

    This nation was built on the backs and blood of the first people who live here. It is a history, untold and untaught, of pain and
    destruction, privilege and power, most of which continues to be unacknowledged and unaddressed. Today, we gather here invited by those who say they govern this province, about an apology for the pain and suffering that hundreds of Chinese immigrants were subjected to by this province.

    Japanese Canadian elder Grace Eiko Thomson speaks to Mayor and Council

    On September 25th, the City of Vancouver passed a motion to formally apologize for its role in the internment and forced removal of Japanese Canadians during and after the war. The Human Rights Committee of the Greater Vancouver Japanese Canadian Citizens’ Association invited Grace Eiko Thomson, an independent curator, cultural historian, and Redress activist, to speak to the historic context of the City’s motion.

    …..As most of you are aware, Canada and Vancouver’s history, regarding how Asian Canadians were treated in the 19th into the 20th century, have little if anything to be documented with pride. In fact, from the moment the immigrants arrived, they were defined by the dominant society supported by the governments, as less than human, paid less for work of equal value………

    Redress activist..?? Coming your way soon.

  12. Good luck with finding such politicians. Politicians are literally terrified of being accused of racism, prejudice, homo-phobia and the like. It is career ending, reputation ruining, they will be labelled as lunatics, Nazis, even criminals. By definition a politician has to be politically correct.

    The other day an Australian politician was asked to apologize for comparing a mining camp to a concentration camp.

    Labor MP Jo-ann Miller has compared Queensland mining accommodation to concentration camps. Mrs Miller has refused to apologise, prompting a heated debate in State Parliament and tears from the Leader of the Opposition Annastacia Palaszczuk.

    Annastacia Palaszczuk? There it is again, ethnic self interest rearing its ugly head. Who would have thought?

    The embattled politician had a clever response that we should all remember:

    “I have no problem with apologising for anyone who has taken offence.”

    They are always on the look out for the slightest thing that may offend someone especially “you know who”. Its potent ammo in the power struggle these days. That’s all it is. Privately no one really believes any of this bullshit but publicly its powerful magic.

    If you get beaten or even killed by a non-white all they have to do is claim you called them something “racist” and they practically get off. Even if they feel you just looked at them funny.

    To get anywhere in politics you got to love non-whites, whores, queers and transgenders. In fact being all of these things and bravely taking it up the ass would be a good career move.

    That’s the new “suck it up and salute”.

  13. I was just reading this:

    Actor Jonah Hill was contrite this morning after using a gay slur during a confrontation with a paparazzo over the weekend.

    Hill’s response:

    “From the day I was born, and publicly, I have been a gay rights activist.”

    “From the day I was born” ?? Why not say before I was even born and in all my previous lives? LOL
