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

Look close!

Right-wing Writer For Washington Examiner Spreads Convenient ACA Lie: California Doctors "NOT" Boycotting thr ACA

70% of California doctors are boycotting the ACA.

On Friday the 13th 2013, I became aware of another Right-wing strategy to do harm to the developing and increasingly popular Affordable Care Act.

We will call it the "Great California Physician Protest against the ACA." The problem is, there is no such boycott. The story is a right-wing fabrication.

As is often the case the usual suspects are integral to the newest lie. Tucker Carlson, Ben Carson (discredited Hopkins School of Medicine employee), the Washington Examiner and Fox News. Our Google search yielded articles for, of course, Breitbart News Dot Com, The News York Post, and other reliable Obama Derangement spreaders of the derangement gospel. And, the articles have surely proliferated.   If you recall Right-wing media and propagandist often grab fabricated stories and run with the stories like programmed village callers.

The genesis of the 70% California doctors who are opting out of the ACA lie is Richard Pollock, a reporter at the conservative Washington Examiner. 

A California Medical Association (CMA) spokesperson addressed the Pollack report.
"That article was wrong," says Molly Weedn, spokeswoman for the CMA. "We have no idea how many doctors are participating. We don't collect that data."
Before we link to a Daily Kos piece, we want ot make certain the message from the sentence above is driven home. If the CMA does not track such data how could the conservative Pollack secure the data.  He secures the data in the same manner many on the Right secure data: they make up the data or the information. 

Joan Carter of the Daily Kos...linked. You may prefer the actual article written for the Los Angeles Times by Michael Hiltzik.

Since, we have found credible information to refute the Right-wing lie, let's end this piece with a segment from Al Sharpton's Politics Nation. We sought to shorten the segment, but decided relevant information was sprinkled through the the minute run time.

Does Tucker Carlson have any credibility?  

How about the Washington Examiner? 

We know Breitbart Dot Com is a modern-day fantasy and comic news creator, so we expect complete fabrications 

Well, we await the next ObamaCare lie.

The US Economy And Pew Research...Is Obama Derangement Working?

Life for the 44th US President is never blasé.  

A recent Pew Research survey shows the president's approval rating dropped to the lowest levels since his 2009 first term inauguration. In some categories the ratings are no surprise, in other categories we have a clear case of either faulty polling, or a poll respondent group influenced by "....what was on the news today," coupled with "I watch Fox News and CNN." Yet, Pew shows the survey respondents span the political spectrum (Republicans, Democrats and Independents) and generally responded negatively with the greatest dissatisfaction among Independents.

Before we go to Pew, we have embedded a video segment from MSNBC's Al Sharpton's Politics Nation.  While the political Right often refers to President Obama as a socialist, the US economy proves right-wing mantra is pure propaganda. Propaganda that in many cases works and works well. The following segment is a bit long for most. We have posted the segment based on the first half of the segment and its focus on the improving US economy. The second half of the segment may be of less interest as it is comprised of panel opining. Our intent in posting the video is also to show pathetic sadness related to people who suffer from right-wing politics and social insensitivity. 

A look at Pew....

Obama Approval on Economy: 31%, Health Care: 37%     Independents Sour on Obama in 2nd Term
Obama Approval Falls to New Low

End Pew Data

Basically, it appears Independents are not happy with President Obama as survey data indicates. While, not part of the survey, we have to wonder about the extent of "washback" from the NSA/CIA disclosures. We also notice that Immigration is an area of malcontent.
