Operation American Spring: DUD! People Just Do Not Like Sedition

As we report on the newly formed and developing Operation American Spring (OSA) movement, our intent is not to ridicule. We are Americans and we can do what we wish as long as it doesn't endanger others and is within the confines of the law. Our time spent on OSA, is equal to the effort expended on the 2009 Tea Party, so we are not beating-up on what has started as an oasis.  

Deep scrutiny of OAS should become a law enforcement operational mission.  No matter the icing, open sedition against the US government should be considered without regard for constitutional rights. Our government is up for grabs every four years with opportunity to affect changer in the US House every two years. People who espouse revolt against a duly elected government are dangerous people. They are not so dangerous in relation to their collective ideology. They are dangerous regarding the potential actions of even one movement zealot or sycophant. Such movements provide fertile growth potential for people who strive for and spending lavishly to move towards oligarchy. 

As I viewed the following march related items, I notice not one person of color among the protesters. If I am correct we didn't see any people of color in the 2009 birth of the Tea Party. 

April 9th 2014, the birth of a movement.  Do you recall the 2009 Tea party Movement; the Koch brother brainchild born out of the election of Barack H, Obama as the 44th President of the United States of America. 

The Kochs and their highly compensated operatives developed a movement that literally "shellacked' the Democrats in 2010. A shellacking that handed the GOP an opportunity that will shape the nation for many years. In fact, the Tea Party House of Oz may retain a solid hold on the House of Representatives until 2021. After the next US Census and a Democratic win in the House, DEM party leaders may have opportunity to re-district representative districts currently proliferating for the GOP like a front yard full of Dandelions in early May.

The Tea Party has fizzled as a viable social movement. Yet, angry white Americans, older angry white Americans, Fox News hosts and Koch operatives delivered a US Congress that the nation this and not much more.

Congressional Job Approval: Recent Trend

In essence, millions followed the Kochs down a path to a lowered national credit rating, deep and severe cuts in public sector employment, partisan politics unparalleled in US History, denied payments to the unemployed, and deep cuts in food programs that also benefit the elderly and low ranking military families. 

The Tea Party fizzled. Far-right malcontent with the loss of the 2008 election has metastasized post-2012 to full-blown sedition. Circa 2012 and forward we have witnessed a major cable network with at least one host who espouses open sedition against the US government. A host who literally rallied behind tax evading/racist Cliven Bundy until Bundy revealed his inner core.   We find weekly exhibition of overt racism, often aimed directly to our president.  And we are seeing new anti-government efforts to stoke anti-US fervor, Fervor that as of this April saw the birth of a seditious movement that should draw attention from the same authorities that so effectively infiltrated Occupy Wall Street.

Operation American Spring (OAS) is upon us.  A quick peep at  OAS will clearly show the extent to which its organizers espouses sedition.
The goal, according to retired Col Harry Riley, is the removal of President Obama, Vice President Biden, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio and California Democrat Nancy Pelosi, the House Minority Leader.

If you want to see the extent to which Riley and his backers envision their movement to "Take My Country Back," you may want to check the OAS website. Linked

The following image had to have been the ( future perfect progressivevision of the OAS. The language tense reference has nothing to do with progressive thought; you can rest assured of that fact. 

Look close!

The Washington Times:    

Operation American Spring falls flat: ‘This is very disappointing,’ Texan say                          


“It’s a very dismal turnout,” said Jackie Milton, 61, a Jacksboro, Texas, resident and the head of Texans for Operation American Spring, to The Washington Times. He said hopes were high when he arrived in Alexandria, Va., a day or so ago and found motels and hotels were sold out for 30 miles around.But weather’s dampened turnout a bit, he said.
_____________________________________________“We were getting over two inches of rain in hour in parts of Virginia this morning,” Mr. Milton said. “Now it’s a nice sunny day. 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.”

_____________________________________________“This is very disappointing,” Mr. Milton said, speaking of the numbers who showed so far, while marching to the White House. “I’ve been taking to everybody for six months, telling them to come and telling them if it’s not realistic to get to D.C., … well then, go to your county courthouse [and protest].”

US Stream TV captured and posted a thirty minutes clip of the event. The video isn't HD quality, and it appears to be of hand-held cell phone quality.

Twenty two minutes (If you are curious about the proceedings and the characters who attended the event).

A 1:36 minute clip with wonderment of why more didn't show.

So much for the Operation American Spring TPI (The Progressive Influence) event gallery.   


Operation American Spring: Tens of protesters showed up to take Obama out of office (Images)

May 16, 2014

Operation America Spring is underway and the only thing missing are the 30 million protesters the organizers promised us. Every livefeed was a dud and only lasted for a few minutes, but we did get a few screenshots. I only expected about 10 old dudes to make an appearance at this revolution, shaking their canes at the White House, insisting Obummer come out with his Kenyan hands up, but much to my surprise, I spotted tens of protesters.
This guy showed up wrapped in the flag, of course.

Our admin @ComgenKDT has been grabbing screen shots and looking at street cams out of concern for the millions of missing ‘patriots.’

All clear:   

Some of my twitter pals have been trying to help me locate these missing angry white people after I asked for assistance.
Missing!: 30 million 'patriots' who were supposed to descend on Washington D.C.

Wow, a president who "couldn't stand up to Putin" swept in & hauled 30 million off the mall without leaving a trace

I hope progressives will understand my choices going forward. You may have also noticed a bit of a close remembrance among the event protests as you view the images above. There is something strikingly zany about the protesters.

Did even see one protester you would love to have as a neighbor. Look up again. Of course, those who wish to be more visible generally find was to model for images, I wager the collective protesters have a lot in common. Do you recall the Washington DC Truckers Protest and the more recent "White Maps March?"  How about the 50th anniversary March On Washington DC in commemoration of the 1960;s march and Martin Luther King's historic address.  If you are old enough you may even remember the mid-1960s march.  

Protest all, correct?

Not one of the three marches formed with open and braggadocios mission to overthrow and remove key federal government office holders.

And then I think of the following image a Facebook friend's page.

Wow, look at the crowd from #OperationAmericanSpring! Oooops, that is a pic from @BarackObama's 2nd inauguration.
