"Operation American Spring": Will it Work?

Though not yet covered by the MSM, the internet is abuzz with news and extensive commentary regarding "Operation American Spring" which kicks off May 16th in DC. From conservative sites, news of the operation is being met with a mix of grassroots angst, fervent support, thoughtful reservations, sincere doubts, and even some ridicule as to the efficacy, especially as it relates to the constitutionality and achievement of Phase 2 objectives described below.

Conservative grassroots anxiety has also been expressed regarding the likelihood of Obama's deliberately inciting violence and using that as a pretext for imposing martial law. Others have complained about the operation's being somehow badly timed (whatever that means), inadequately organized, and ill-equipped to handle the exigencies of such a massive and sustained turnout and occupation.

Still others worry that the media will deliberately de-legitimize and demonize the movement and its "lawless participants" (so, what's new)' thus eclipsing the movement's momentum by undermining public support. Still other detractors have gone out of their way to argue that OAS will do little more than seriously jeopardize conservative chances for an electoral victory in November. In short, lot's of excuses for doing nothing or more of the same, which is essentially nothing.

As can be expected, the omnipresent trolls are out in force attacking Col. Riley's motivations and impugning his honor--without a shred of proof, of course--and sowing discord and confusion to the extent possible. All very obvious to the trained reader, but to the unwary their venom has some perceptible effect.

Spearheaded by one COL. Riley, the following is the OAS plan:

Phase 1 – Field millions, as many as ten million, patriots who will assemble in a 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 bring down the existing 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. The senior republican in the US House of Representatives will become Speaker of the House and the US House of Representatives will elect a temporary President and Vice President of the United States. The U.S. Senate will take action to elect a new majority and minority leader.
As required, the U.S. Congress will execute appropriate legislation to convene new elections 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, will 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 and 3 will be consistent with the U.S. Constitution.”

According to the Patriots for America site, considerable planning for all manner of contingencies has been underway for some time now. Nothing in the areas of logistics, self-policing/security, sanitation, medical care, emergency housing, retreat strategies, etc. is being left to chance. And, from all indications, the detailed planning and organization continues unabated and at full speed.

Having followed this for some time now, from my humble perspective, many of the naysayers are simply ignorant of the careful and detailed preparations underway to ensure the operation's success and sustainability. To wit, this isn't a government operation; this is a military-led civilian operation. And having been in a military leadership role myself (Infantry Captain, US Army), I believe we can all be assured of a well-planned, disciplined and well-executed operation from start to finish. Like every such operation, objectives and tactics will be permitted to quickly and efficiently adjust to realities on the ground. For this reason, particular objectives may necessarily change, though the overall strategy to prevail in the end will not.

The short and sweet of it is this: I am of the view that OAS is the only genuine patriotic push-back effort we have going for us at the moment. For me, arm-chair and carping patriots unwilling to get out from behind their keyboards pose a greater threat to patriotic efforts to restore constitutional order and economic sanity than anything OAS participants could possibly perpetrate.

That said, like any patriot worth his salt, I too have questions. A blind follower I have never been. As I have shared with Col. Riley, I sincerely question the attainability of Phase 2 objectives. Why? If the targeted political hacks--who, by the way, are duly elected political hacks-- refuse to resign, then what? Like the plague, an operation should avoid a "what now?" moment at all costs. Nothing could be more debilitating to an operation's momentum and demoralizing to its participants than such a moment of vacillation and uncertainty. Such a moment of ambiguity could easily encourage participants to either retreat with egg on their face or to quickly and ill-advisedly commit to a more forceful and, perhaps, undisciplined approach to removing those politicians from office. And IF the latter is the underlying aim of OAS leaders--and I have no reason to believe that it is--then it really is the beginning of a full-scale people's rebellion. At that point, we will ALL be forced to make a critically important decision for ourselves, our families and our country: yield to a more emboldened ruling class or resist by all means necessary. And though I question the Phase 2 "removal objective", in the final analysis I am confident that the careful planning underway will prevent such a debilitating moment. In the end, the prize, that being the restoration of constitutional order, will be achieved.

My hope--and, in truth, my expectation--is that as the certainty of a massive occupation of DC becomes clearer to both the MSM and to the political elites in DC, the latter who value their hides will unilaterally take corrective actions to assuage participants' fervor and to appease OAS demands before May 16th. In that regard, I'm hopeful that the mere threat of such massive numbers descending on DC will, at the very least, compel the ruling class to TIMELY appoint special prosecutors to investigate Obama's eligibility/fraud/impeachability/possible treason, as well as the Fast and Furious, Benghazi and IRS scandals. Of course a FIRM TIMELINE for completion of those investigations and appropriate and timely convictions, removals and punishment of those found in any way culpable should be insisted upon and fully achieved before OAS agrees to stand down.

I have to say that never in my lifetime could I have ever envisioned such a turbulent and dangerous time in our country. The sincere expressions of grassroots anger, fear and disillusionment are deeper and far more widespread than I could ever have imagined. Oh, the detractors, that being the subversive trolls and the fair-weather, whimpering and overly-cautious "patriots", are making their presence known on the internet, but their whimpering is consistently and quickly drowned out by a flood of unwavering patriotic fervor unlike anything I've ever seen. So, I predict that the OAS occupation will achieve its patriotic goals this year. But, it can't happen without a critical mass of patriots stepping up.

Finally, these words of advice from "Lone Survivor" seem especially relevant for patriots everywhere: "Find an excuse to win!" Without a convincing alternative plan for real action to restore constitutional order, excuses for inaction are totally unacceptable and meaningless.

Rush Limbaugh Explains How Robert Mueller
Will Attempt To Financially Destroy President Trump

 Special Counsel Robert Mueller has crossed President Trump’s “red line” after issuing a subpoena for documents related to the Trump Organization’s business dealings with Russia.

New York Times reports:

The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, has subpoenaed the Trump Organization to turn over documents, including some related to Russia, according to two people briefed on the matter. The order is the first known time that the special counsel demanded documents directly related to President Trump’s businesses, bringing the investigation closer to the president. […] The Trump Organization has said that it never had real estate holdings in Russia, but witnesses recently interviewed by Mr. Mueller have been asked about a possible real estate deal in Moscow. In 2015, a longtime business associate of Mr. Trump’s emailed Mr. Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen at his Trump Organization account claiming he had ties to President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia and said that building a Trump Tower in Moscow would help Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign.

Radio host Rush Limbaugh theorized on his program Friday that one of Mueller’s true objectives is to financially destroy President Trump.

Partial transcript via Breitbart News:

And these requests, the subpoena for documents from the Trump Organization, I ask you again, what has that to do with the campaign and with collusion and with the Russians? They’ve already been looking into Trump business in Russia with the Miss, what is it, USA, whatever his pageant is.

Do you all remember during the early days of the campaign there was news that Trump, in a tax return something like 20 years ago, took a $900 million deduction that was granted and survived an audit by the IRS? Now, I forget the details. It had to do with losses that he had incurred in that year in building things. It was around 900 or $920 million deduction. I’ll never forget when it was reported because most people will never come close to ever having that in a lifetime, and to have a guy personally write that much off?

Anyway, I think Mueller wants that $920 million back. I think Mueller wants to prove that that was a faulty deduction. I think that they want to go back, they want to get Trump’s tax returns because they want to nullify that $900 million deduction, and then they want to collect 20 years of interest and penalties and wipe Trump out.

In the meantime, President Trump’s lawyers are in the process of negotiating with special counsel Robert Mueller to bring the Russia probe to an end, reports Rebecca Ballhaus and Peter Nicholas of the Wall Street Journal.

Mueller’s tentacles continue to reach further and further.

CNN reported that investigators are attempting to determine whether former Blackwater chief Erik Prince misled the  House Intelligence Committee about a meeting he had in Seychelles in January of 2017.

Prince is accused of using the meeting as an opportunity to establish a secret back channel with Russia.

Fox News’ Catherine Herridge spoke with one of President Trump’s personal lawyers about the new subpoena request by Special Counsel Mueller.

According to Herridge, Trump’s lawyer was unaware of the subpoena and said it may be a ‘wrap up’ subpoena or ‘clean up’ subpoena which may signal the end of the investigation.
