Operation American Spring Is Doomed to Fail

The Common Sense Show


The best predictor of future behavior are past events. History is a great teacher and the upcoming Operation American Spring, to be held on May 16, 2014, stands as an example of why we need to pay attention to our history.

I have received quite a few requests from people who want me to endorse Operation American Spring by expressing the belief that all we need to do is to stand up to tyranny, expose the tyranny and tyranny will run for cover. When American protesters show up in DC on May 16, 2014, the government will indeed run. They will run to retrieve their guns. This event, if carried out in the proposed fashion, will end very badly for when the people rise up and aggressively oppose governmental tyranny, the government will strike back. And this group will be ill prepared to handle the backlash.

Operation American Spring 

Colonel Riley (RET) has dubbed the event “Operation American Spring-Beginning of Tyranny Housecleaning. The event is set to commence on May 16, 2014.

Riley identifies three primary phases to the plan:

First Phase- As many as 10 million patriots assemble in a peaceful, non-violent manner and remain unarmed.

Second Phase- At least one million of the 10 million will stay in Washington D.C., for as long as it takes, to see Obama, Biden, Reid, McConnell, Boehner, Pelosi and Holder removed from office. The movement does not state how they will accomplish the removal of these public officials.

Third Phase- West, Cruz, Carson, Lee, DeMint, Paul, Gowdy, Jordan will comprise a tribunal from which investigations will be launched and prefer charges against the guilty. Just how will these investigations occur and by what executive authority will the findings and recommendations of any tribunal be carried out, is not clear.

There is no mention of how the guilty will be arrested, charged, tried and how the sentence is to be executed. I am a sucker for movements in which we galvanize the people in an unified fashion to oppose the tyranny engulfing the US and the rest of the world. However, the movement would prove to ineffective on its face as it aims to low. The suggested arrests only target the minions of the various tyrannical attacks upon our liberties. If one wants to initiate an occupy movement, 2014 version, it needs to begin in the City of London and/or in Basel. At least begin with the Federal Reserve.

I cannot see any way that this movement is not a prescription for disaster with regard to the participants and their welfare. This kind of movement has happened before and it met with abject disaster.  

Operation American Spring Is the Modern Day Bonus Army

I will not endorse Operation American Spring. I will not rise to speak for the event, but rather, I speak against the event. I would love to throw my support behind the event. However, this event is a bad idea and the 1932 treatment of the WWI Bonus Army stands as an historical example of why I feel the way that I do.

World War I veterans were promised bonus pay for their brave efforts in the “war to end all wars”.  After the 1929 crash of the Stock Market and over 50% of the nation’s banks failed from 1929-1930, money became scarce and these veterans, who became known as the Bonus Army, demanded their bonuses from the government so that they could make ends meet in those difficult times.

In the summer of 1932, the WWI veterans marched on Washington DC in much the same manner as the Operation American Spring movement is proposing to do this coming Spring. For weeks, the Bonus Army camped out near the halls of Congress. On the last day of summer session in Congress, President Hoover ordered the army to clear the veterans out. Please keep in mind that martial law was never declared and the use of the military as a police force was absolutely illegal. However, this did not deter Douglas MacArthur as he was determined to rid DC of the Bonus Army.

The Army was also led by Eisenhower and Patton and they laid waste to the shanty towns that the veterans had constructed. Their temporary shelters were burned along with their possessions. The veterans were gassed, just as they had been by the Germans in WWI. Members of the Bonus Army were poked with bayonets and many were beaten. The Army and their leaders showed the veterans little mercy. Subsequently, the veterans were driven from Washington DC and they were never paid what they were owed.

In actuality, the government, in one regard, showed the WWI veterans mercy by not mass murdering them. I question whether such a movement would not be met with more decisive force were this event to occur today. 

Here is a six minute clip which accurately tells the story of the Bonus Army and these clips are an accurate portend of the fate which awaits these “occupiers” on May 16th.


Right Move, Wrong Time, Carried Out By the Wrong People

When these future heroes of WWII suppressed the Bonus Army, they were operating outside the scope of law. The Army of 1932 could not rely on the NDAA. The martial law legislation that Americans are living under today did not exist in 1932. Many of the modern day martial law provisions are game changers. 

The minions of the globalists would like for nothing better than to draw a large number of dissident Americans out into the open and smash them like a bug on windshield. This would send a clear message to every other American that resistance is futile.

One organizing principle of warfare is based upon the notion of not challenging the enemy where they are strong. If millions of Americans, and I doubt that very many people could be brought to DC, were to be opposed and crushed, they would have played into the strength of our enemies.

Our efforts are better spent engaging in organized activities where we can have a real impact without the forces of the NWO being able to openly oppose us under the color of law in order to crush our movement.

Operation American Spring also has the potential to erupt into civil disobedience and provide our enemies with the ability to begin to mass arrest American citizens in the name of restoring order. This event could prove to be the beginning of the Internment/Resettlement movement which I wrote about this past week.

There will come a time to openly oppose the “Emperor’s forces”. However, this open opposition to tyranny will not successfully come from the people. Open opposition will come from the military led by the fired Generals who were shown the door by Obama. Mark my words, that day is coming, but instead of coming from a “Bonus Army”, it will come from a guerrilla force of veterans which will lay waste to the oppressors.

The People Can Strike Back Effectively

I am not proposing that the people do not strike back and that we just lay down and take our beating without putting up any resistance. However, the people need to oppose tyranny with an expectation of success. Taking back our government need not involve the needless creation of martyrs.

Recently, I received a message from a couple living in Panama City, FL. While shopping in their local Walmart, they encountered abuse at the hands of Walmart’s new security forces who call themselves Securitas Security, or the SS for short! This couple, without provocation was falsely imprisoned, had battery committed against the husband and had their property taken by Walmart’s SS storm troopers. Many of us know that Walmart engages in virtual slave labor in China. We know that they were previously caught lying about their products being made in America. We know that former DHS Secretary, Janet Napolitano, kicked off her “See something, say something” East German Stasi spy program at Walmart. And many of us are aware that Walmart will be used as detention centers in the upcoming martial law.

Why would anyone shop at Walmart? Of course, you might save a few pennies by buying the products produced by slave labor, but at what cost to humanity? Attention Walmart shoppers, you are funding tyranny. Boycott Walmart, Kmart and all the other slave marts controlled by the globalists. In this battleground, the people hold the power. 

A Real Operation American Spring

The American people do not need an American Spring. We can silently oppose the NWO by withdrawing our support. As I have repeatedly said, take your money, except enough to pay your bills, out of the Federal Reserve controlled banks. Educate yourself and take advantage of the tax deductions offered under the tax code so that you stop feeding the collection arm of the Federal Reserve, the IRS. Begin to grow as much of your food as you can and stop shopping in the “Big Ag” grocery stores which force feed us GMO’s. Do not eat out at the corporate restaurants. Eat at the mom and pop restaurants. Stop feeding the beast!


My advice to those who want a real American Spring is to educate your local law enforcement. Distribute my articles on the Internment/Resettlement camps to these people. Share the articles with veterans and active duty personnel. Engage in activities in which you have a reasonable expectation of success.

There may be an armed confrontation in our future, but it will not be successfully initiated by you or by any Operation American Spring type of movement. All you are doing is risking your own demise for an endeavor that has no hope of succeeding. Strike at the root and take away money from humanity’s enslavers.

There will come a time to oppose tyranny because they are not going to acquiesce to the will of the people. However, as I have pointed out, this will not be a “people’s opposition movement”, initially. The military will have to spearhead this movement. For now, we are all the resistance, but our resistance is that of an economic guerrilla fighter. Hit these people where it hurts, in the pocketbook and keep your self safe in the near term and stay away from Washington DC on May 16, 2014.

    Very good sir. Another “10” of an intell briefing. There “is” one little thing you missed though … the “colonel” HAS NO PLAN FOR A NEW AMERICA. He’s either a fake or a dope. You don’t want to follow either. Read “White Girl Bleed A lot,” and ask yourself if America can be saved … BY JUST ARRESTING A FEW PUPPETS BUT LEAVING EVERYTHING ELSE THE SAME !!!!??? And I hate even giving an example like the book, because there’s a TON of examples and that’s just reaching in the big jar and only pulling one out … taking emphasis away from the hugeness of the total situation.

    Secession is the ONLY ONLY way to save America. We must divide in 2 based on what divides us at each election already anyways. Just make it geographic. All blacks browns muslims gays democrats and men in womens bodies, ( eg., women doing mens jobs like representative judge police etc., ) in The USA. All white Christian patriots in an enlarged 15 state version of The New Confederate States Of America, ( The CSA. ) This is win win. EVERYONE gets their own shot at Utopia, without interference from the other side.

    See, nothing will change here. Watch the CNN interview of Ted Nugent and see Erin try to PLAY Nugent with the race card. The ploy is TO GET YOU TO CLAIM YOU’RE NOT A RACIST. It worked !!! Nugent, ( without looking up the actual word in an old paper dictionary – not a smart device where THEY changed the meaning of the word, ) was fooled and played the sucker. Alex Jones has been played too. He announces he’s “not a racist” on every episode now !!!

    It’s time to stop kissing butt folks. Way past time. And don’t follow any dummy into DC on May 16th … unless he wants to SECEDE. See ya next year sheeple. Over and out. I’ll leave you with the most current pecking order of watchmen :

    10. The Hawk ( Csriverschannel youtube )
    11. We’ll have to see how Caravantomidnight ( dot com ) turns out. I think it will be good.
    12. Infowars maybe … if Alex stops supporting RINO’s and announcing “he’s not a racist.” Give him 90 days probation.

    One question. How will this guerrilla force be formed under the intense scrutiny from the NSA and other agencies?

  3. Linda Williams February 25, 2014 at 6:13 am

    The analysis of this American “spring” seems totally accurate, insightful and highly protective of any patriots who might consider attempting it. The idea was likely spearheaded or adopted by the powers, since they always like to control opposition and lead people to their demise. What could be of interest is a mirage “spring,” where vast numbers of people appear intent upon carrying out the plan, but never show up. They could stay home or carry out other, completely different plans on the big day.

    I think that small, unexpected strikes, which appear to be impromptu could be highly effective –either military or civillian.


  4. iwitness02 February 25, 2014 at 6:14 am

    I agree with Dave on this. They have been wearing us down for more than a century.
    Let’s wear them down and a little. Withhold every form of support that you possibly can.
    Let’s poke them with a sharp stick right in the wallet. Let them know there is an American Will When their arrogance is offended at our independence, and they decide to show us who’s really in charge here; then let us engage. But first lets rev. their motor a little. On our terms, on our turf, and at our own choosing. Even now with some thought and a little sacrifice on our part we can collectively hurt them in their soft spot. Let’s hit them with everything we won’t buy.
    Showing up in DC speaks to them. Withholding your money from them, hurts them.

  5. CEO constitutional enforcement officer February 25, 2014 at 6:16 am

    Good one sir Hodges, I have said this from the first that I heard about protesting with a march, Really , can any say TRAP , please check out the generals leading this and you will find their motives are impure at best. No general that has more than a bb for a brain would ever announce their plans , unless the plan is to betray . Thank you Dave , your not supporting this trap called American spring may have saved countless lives . If I was a nwo cowardly scum sucking traitor , and I wanted to hunt for Patriots , what would be the the most effective way to start my hunting trip?? oh I know I would what I have always done that works . I would get me some payed for puppets that have a perception of credibility to blow smoke of marching for freedom and the the cockroaches would just run away , then I would have the first strike shock and awe of shooting fish in a barrel . The cheese in the trap is the perception of freedom gained by just showing up, and the Patriots would just show up at the front door ready to be skinned . Question , would the bad guys be there just waiting for eviction , sure they would. Look this is for all the marbles , lets quit playing this we’re just going to march our tyrants away game. This is not about our freedoms right now but our very lives. Now lets man the hell up ,and head their super bowl warning PREPARE.

  6. iwitness02 February 25, 2014 at 6:18 am

    Let them know there is an American Will.
    When their arrogance is offended by our independence, ………..

  7. Howard R Music February 25, 2014 at 6:19 am

    I believe you are correct. Efforts should be directed at the local level. There are enough badge heavy police, code enforcement, and corrupt officials in virtually any community to deal with. I was once assaulted and arrested by three police officers and was able to beat the bogus charges and sue successfully for damages. I have also had success in warding off code enforcement and traffic tickets, ect. It does take a little research, but it can be done.

  8. Defender74 February 25, 2014 at 6:27 am

    A well put article!

  9. Craig Mouldey February 25, 2014 at 6:39 am

    Dave, you pretty much crystallized my unease regarding this march. Initially I felt excited. Finally someone is going to do something in a big way. then almost immediately the thought came to me that it would be a big mistake to have thousands or millions of veterans involved, out in the open. It would be like shooting fish in a barrel where the NWO, as you say could smash a large number of possible resisters like bugs. There is also some question regarding those who are organizing this. What is known about their motives and positions on things such as gun confiscation? Is it even remotely possible some of these organizers are really on the team of the devils? Just asking.
    That was quite a film clip. Was that downtown Kiev? No, it was Washington! For veterans and anyone thinking of joining the military, and for all others so quick to join the war bandwagon and support the troops, please wake up and realize this power structure assigns you a value of zero! You are just there to be used and abused and then discarded. I will begin discreatly removing what savings I have from the bank. I never shop at Walmart!!

  10. Gray Fox 114 February 25, 2014 at 6:41 am

    I feel really good after reading this, because it is VERY similar to a post I did on another site several days ago! I contended that getting all the veterans and patriots together in one place at one time, and unarmed to boot, was foolish and I likened it to a modern day Bonus March. Plagiarism, just on the same page….whatever, Dave has a much larger following that I do, and if he gets the word out about this, great. In the meantime, stay home, work in the shadows and above all, don’t draw undue attention to yourself or your group!

    The fact that you recall the event indicates its success. But you may chose to look the other way if you want.

    This is a battle against spiritual wickedness,it can only be fought on our knees in repentance and crying out to the Lord.anything else will result in diaster.

  14. Frank February 25, 2014 at 7:06 am


    Very rarely do I disagree with your viewpoint. However, this time is different. Throughout history dictators have NEVER stepped down peacefully. The guys that are organizing this rally know full well what the possible implications could be. I have no doubt that they are aware of the possible ramifications. They also realize that their sacrifice could stimulate many to the action that is required to stop these criminals. Economic pressure isn’t going to make anyone step down. The time has come that people are going to have to choose a side. I have little doubt that a number of idiots will continue to support these criminals in power. However, there will be more than enough to resist and conquer these usurpers. Remember, only 5% of the original thirteen colonies participated in the Revolution where we beat an army that had never lost a war up to that point. What do people intend to do when these FEMA camps are fully operational and the Russian mercenaries come to force people into them? There is little time left before this whole thing commences. I wonder where most will place their loyalties and how many will actually fight.


  15. Cujo February 25, 2014 at 7:06 am

    Until your article I have not heard a clearer argument as to why AOS should not take place. I am for large gatherings to address our grievances, I attended both Tea Party Rallies in DC and witnessed how our leaders down played the attention. I had no intention of attending the AOS maybe because it just didn’t feel right to me.

    Now if the AOS went there with the mentality to exorcize our Right to protest and to draw attention of the silent ones sitting on their hands and to tell DC you don’t rule us I could support and maybe even attend. But to go with demands that cannot be enforced or with expectations that would never be obtained, no, I couldn’t support.

  16. David February 25, 2014 at 7:08 am

    Why is it that “guerrilla warfare” is regarded as the only solution? And why wait until May. On April 15th every American can make a very simple yet effective statement. That is, do not send that tax return to the IRS. This is a non violent way for each and every person to say – “we don’t approve of what you are doing.” That simple act of civil disobedience by millions of people or tens of millions of people would have a resounding effect. A new “shot heard around the world” but in a non violent fashion. There are so many alternatives at out disposal that don’t require violence yet a significant portion of the alternative media and so called liberty movement won’t explore those. The simplest way is to stop feeding the beast on a local, state and national level. Sure, there’s always the risk that you could have as least some of your assets seized. But that’s a small price to pay isn’t it? And anything that avoids bloodshed seems logical.

    Finally, I’m a bit skeptical of this Col. Riley character. His “Third Phase” is laughable. To suggest that Alan West or any other person on his list can sit in judgement of others is plain silly. You want to know Alan West and what he stands for, see this – http://archive.lewrockwell.com/grigg/grigg-w208.html

  17. Rumplestiltskin February 25, 2014 at 7:10 am

    Dave, my goodness man, short of you coming off like shill for the government, you need to say WHAT REALLY NEEDS TO BE SAID ! The slow change through “Proper Channels” will leave our country in ruins. If Americans realize too late what needs to be done, they will be eking out their existence under a freeway overpass.

    It id coming near time to; Put Up or Shut Up, but you guys always guard your asses by talking around the issue. You also know from past history that it will take blood in the streets, by the tanker full, to change the inertia of a corrupt government gone bad. There is no way of getting around it. What is happening in the Ukraine’s Kiev, is a lesson that needs to be understood. You can bet your bottom dollar that Government Provocateurs will be on hand to start the violence, but it still does not negate the fact that humanity will not change unless they see great quantities of blood in those streets. Only then will the dumb downed American wake the hell up and take to the streets of their own hometowns.

    You should support this action, no matter the outcome. Just because you don’t want to see blood is no reason to back off supporting your fellow Americans who are trying to change what many think is unchangeable, including you !!!



  18. Finally February 25, 2014 at 7:15 am

    All hell on earth is about to break loose.
    Jesus Christ, after 2000 years, is coming to take those who live for Him WITH Him….. millions will disappear. The vast majority will be left to face a hell on earth that has never been before, and will never be again…it will be so bad it cannot be explained in words.Those that remain will be here to CHOOSE, by SEEING with their own eyes being as they did not believe and LIVE for Jesus Christ before this. Many believe, but do not LIVE for Jesus Christ.

    The choice is this- and there’s only two options.

    lucifer (satan) and death
    Jesus Christ/Jehovah God and LIFE.

    The choice is eternal and the test is almost over. hell or paradise. Inside of 4 years every single person alive will have chosen.

  19. Mark Mayr February 25, 2014 at 7:19 am

    Bro Dave,

    Agreed. I have been warning about provisions for many things as it pertains to that type of movement. The best thing people can do is take their cash capital that they do not need for paying basic bills out of the banks. Start bartering. Dump the dollar system all the way around in every way possible. Learn to negotiate terms with others in other ways than dealing with the USD. Gold, silver.. .are options as are shares in viable companies. These types of trades can be done and should be done.

    The logic behind Operation American Spring was filled with good intentions. . .but not much insight into how to provide for fuel, housing, food, clothing, living expenses, hygiene. . .etc. There is a different movement with those of higher capacity of understanding that needs to take place. Those with the correct training and understanding of the military systems are necessary along with those experienced in covert operations. The ill-informed and ill-advised public need not be drawn into that mess unless the government moves on the public first (as if they haven’t already been trying to stir the public up to get their Martial Law referendum going).

    Good insights. The time and money spent on that endeavor is not at the dispense of those most able to put a lions den attack on what is taking place. Wisdom is what is needed along with support for precision and decisive movements.

    Peace be with you,

    Everything is at stake at this time. The “powers” will turn human beings into remote control toys, if allowed to take America. Any strategy that conserves the lives and health of patriots is vital. Overt provocation of the “powers” can be disastrous. When I advised conferring with the powers, I feared that bankers were being taken out in order to “threaten” the “powers.” I was anxious that they would brutally smash down patriot military and bolster their own defences. If the seals are able to selectively prevent false flags, by targeting bankers, it is heartening. Can the few bankers with important information, who might dare to testify be protected, hidden by the Seals? Is there a way that the camps can be altered subtly so that they can be prisons only in appearance? The loyal security forces must understand the use of remote technologies that affect thinking and mood. I am certain that the military thinkers realize that Canada can be used against the U.S., since it is in the same clutches as congress. It is likely able to transport materiel, including hazmat and biological shipments and perhaps personnel. I think that many Russians were brought in as teenagers. That is why they speak English perfectly.

    This slow ambush on all liberty has been carried out by subterfuge and that is why good people have not responded en masse. How can evil gain such ascendency? Through outright brutal crime: murder, theft, slander, physical and emotional violence–every sort of vile act– all done in secrecy. They prefer to select the few persons of exceptional qualities, who could make a difference and to isolate their victims. I saw upper management-type people begging at street corners for decades and did not, at the time, have the courage to ask their story. They likely had the same story –misfortune after misfortune, all contrived in secrecy by minions. When you see propped up, groups and causes that are normally too weak to stand up, you know where the wealth comes from.

    It is true that America has turned away from God. Therefore, turning back, not blaming ourselves is the answer. I believe that God can allow evil to work assiduously, never realizing that in the end its labours will be coopted for good.

    The only thing that should “change” is the people should ALL BE ARMED to the teeth!
    Let those punks in D.C. try and stop 10 million armed and angry citizens !

  22. Country Codger February 25, 2014 at 7:46 am

    Great article Dave and you are correct. I pointed this out to US attorney in the Dallas office and she “Yeah and don’t forget Ohio State and Kent State. The army will always do what they are told to do.” She is now in the Washington office.
    Stop and think about this. This was 1932, when we had a moral nation before the days of FDR. It would be a killing field now.
    Unintended Consequences people, that is the answer.

  23. Jim February 25, 2014 at 7:48 am


    There is such a simple method to take the entire banking system and the exisiting political system with it. If 10 million people bought one 20 ounce roll of silver, it would all be over. To end the current political system, the fiat based financial system must end.

    All the best.

  25. Joe February 25, 2014 at 8:03 am

    While us patriots need to band together, I agree the OAS is a flawed idea as it stands now. However Dave, the people behind the idea are most likely passionate, energetic and have overall good intentions for the most part. The collective minds of everyone will be much more powerful than any one person or organization acting alone and absolutely necessary at this point. Rather than chastise or ignore them, how about working WITH them and all others to come up with some better ways to accomplish what needs to be done. For you people on board with the OAS like Frank here, consider this. Our government and those who pull their strings could easily unleash a virus like Bird Flu or something nasty that takes out the entire movement and blame it all on too many people in one place, unsanitary conditions etc. That possibility alone should be enough to deter this idea. There can be so much more done with less risk with everyone staying spread out but working in concert. There are plenty of covert and effective ways to take back our country. We all need to put our heads together and quick though or it will be too late…if it isn’t already. I like most of what you write Dave but it saddens me you wouldn’t see this as an opportunity to join forces with other American patriots whose overall goals are most likely the same as yours. If you truly feel we are in the dangers you so often write about, how about putting down the pen and picking up the phone to organize a legitimate revolutionary movement? Between you, Veterans Today, Hagmanns, Quayle, V, and Little, and your “sources” you have enough experience and connections to lead the way. Sorry but the rest of us don’t have to time to generate the following you all have. May I all suggest you stop writing articles for now and put your heads together and figure this out. The rest of us are here for ideas and resources when ya’ll are ready.

    It may be worthwhile to devise a low vocabulary language (or languages) for future use. I saw some reference in the internment documents suggesting that there will be constant surveillance and likely recording. Therefore, should there be internments, it will not be safe to say anything to anyone of any plans to in any way not adapt to the N.W.O..

  29. Dana W February 25, 2014 at 8:29 am

    I’ll haft to agree with Dave that incident with the vets has always stuck in my mind, I think unless people are willing to stop using their money and looking to them to solve their problems their just going to keep passing more and more laws and having their way with us. The money is the property of the federal reserve and as long as people use the property of a privately own corporation for commerce they will own them.

  30. Mike February 25, 2014 at 8:33 am

    Dave, your stance on this subject is truly worthy of the title “The Common Sense Show”.

    One true piece of Americana is an order given during the Battle of Bunker Hill: “Don’t fire until you see the whites of their eyes”. We will all be better off if we remember and stick to this creed.

    I agree it’s a disaster waiting to happen but if people would wake up and understand that no matter how many marches and protests are put together or how much money you take out of the banks the hard fact is it’s not going to change anything at this point i think we should all just hand over our guns and surrender what we have left because the american people will not stand up for themselves or what’s left of our country this country wants everything done for them and thats the reason we have tyranny everyone wants to complain but no one is willing to sacrifice anything to change what’s being done lets put this in perspective we wait until martial law is declared then everyone is in a panic then all the so called patriots and vets are hunted down you cant resist after the fact now anyone with a functional brain can understand you don’t wait until after the opposition has landed and get in position especially when it’s your home their invading this fight cant be won by words alone waiting on the opposition

    OAS will be a wasted effort at best, and quite possibly a trap. Students of history, learn from the St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre. Protestants, stay out of Paris.

  33. Linda Williams February 25, 2014 at 8:44 am

    One other thought. How many professionals with high credentials realized right away that 9/11 had to have been caused by a controlled demolition? How many skilled construction workers knew? Why is it that their expert opinions were not expressed effectively for a decade? Wouldn’t this information be vital to a nation? What could stop so many people from finding a way to get out the message? (Even a child who has played with blocks would know deep down that the buildings could not fall with the sides perfectly parallel.) I ask because any time an “event” occurs, experts are needed to get out the facts and the truth immediately. Even borrowing a P.A. system in a high-rise for a minute could alert the trusting, good people of a besieged nation and direct them to other sources.

    to make the first move not only put any chance of winning in danger but puts your children in danger cause would you rather be engaged while your wife and kids are behind you risking the chance that they could catch a round cause if you think the government wont engage you with children present then keep thinking that no matter how much is exposed or how much you talk at them it’s not going to change anything an unarmed march is not the answer talking is not the answer hell even trying to arrest the puppets in washington is not the answer everyone lives in this dream world where we think locking people in a cage is humane its not we put animals in cages so think about this someone hurts you or steals from you or kills your loved on not only have they stolen what you worked hard for our took an innocent life but now they get feed clothed and housed on your tax dollars no one i grasping it’s the winners who write history and if you people want to be remembered as the people that stood by and lost america

  39. Ellen February 25, 2014 at 9:18 am

    Dear Dave, Some of your points are very good. However, your solution is an arm chair general solution. The American Spring very well may be brutal, however, the more brutal, the more a solution will appear. If the American Spring protesters stay unarmed and accept the beating, this will give the Military a chance to come in and do their duty, of upholding the constitution, of which they have failed miserably. Country Codger recommends the book “UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES” by John Ross, where in the book, the people murder all of the ATF officers (except the ones that quit) and all elected officials that support communism and anti gun. It is a good book, and in the book, things turned out well. Yes history shows the WW 1 vets got beaten on, yet the government had some severe repercussion. Kent State was a turing point and the Vietnam war started going down hill after. At this time the corruption of those communists in control are on the peoples minds. An American Spring, may be the tipping point. I will agree that the the potential for a brutal outcome is real. However, we are at an impasse. The sheeple are not making a move. The black on white violence is getting bad, and these poor uneducated blacks are shouting, it is the white folks that owe us big time, of course you never hear this from any education people black or white. Only the blind believing welfare blacks that have drank the kool-aid. NO DAVE, the OPERATION SPRING is a solution. Yes, it will be tough. However, most people that read your site are devout CHRISTIANS. Most Christians know that we are in the TRIBULATION. And as such the amount of deaths are going to be high during the tribulation. So, it is time we stand up for what we believe, as there may not be another time or option. General Vallely and Col Riley are experience military men. They are fully aware of the situation and each and every avenue. They have thought this through. And they cannot tell the whole plan, for the communists that have taken over will then be able to counter them. Plus, the communists are now infiltrating the Operation and using Communist manifesto methods to undermine it. What may be a good option, would be to have operation spring in many locations. because of the travel and being far from home when brutality occurs can be difficult.

    Currently, the Ukrainians are seeking a 2nd Amendment, which is SMART, in light of the HOLODOMOR. (Look it up). Remember, too, that in 1917, Jacob Schiff handed Lev Bronstein, (Leon Trotsky) $20 Million USD, before Trotsky boarded a ship, in New York Harbor, bound for Russia, and the Rothschild/Schiff-funded overthrow, of the Romanov Dynasty ( in the plans, since 1824!) What did this newly formed “Bolshevist” Government do, under Lenin, then Stalin? These 72-82% “Jews” within the new Russian Government SLAUGHTERED 20-60 MILLION RUSSIAN (mainly CHRISTIAN) PEASANTS, and gave the proceeds (personal property, and land) to themselves, and their cronies. Question: With all these dual Israeli/American (Zionist) “Citizens” currently living inside the United States – IS the United States currently being set-up, for another HOLOCAUST?????

    The 20th Century was the HOLOCAUST OF THE “GENTILE” (some 250 Million people died by government, globally, in the 20th Cent., via wars and “revolutions”, financed by Int’l Central Bankers, such as the War in Vietnam, in which U.S. Corporations, like Ford, provided trucks to the N. Vietcong, via Russia, while U.S. Soldiers were fighting them, in the bush)

    So, why the inordinate focus, of our media, on the reported deaths of the “6 Million” (“Jews”) in Nazi Concentration Camps?

  42. Anon February 25, 2014 at 9:27 am

    Look, the 1%-ers – the KLEPTOCRATIC PARASITES, who PRODUCE NOTHING – are DRIVING the U.S., it’s economy, and it’s people – RIGHT INTO THE GROUND. The Zionists, are simply ONE faction, of the 1%-ers.

    Historically, they appear to be a rather powerful faction, at that.

    They appear to take their marching orders, from the Rothschilds and Rockefellers. It’s the FASCIST IDEOLOGY of ZIONISM, and FABIAN SOCIALISM that is the problem – NOT the average, street-level “Jew”. What the average, street-level “Jew” needs to understand (as does EVERYONE ELSE), is that our Institutions and Media, have been taken over by FABIAN SOCIALISTS, hell-bent on establishing or maintaining their current status quo – or, global governance – or, bringing on a ONE-WORLD GOVERNMENT, with Int’l Central Bankers at the helm. Look, it’s “them” (1%, globally), against “us” (99%).

    Dave, I am so HAPPY!!! to see you are against this American Spring march. I have written you a little over a month ago stating I did not like the set up. And I do believe it is a set up for all the reasons you mention plus, Take a look at a map of DC. The people in this march will not only be unarmed, they will be boxed in by waterways. The Potomac/Washington channel, and the Anacostia, make escape virtually impossible on two sides. They will be boxed in. I am glad to finally hear your thoughts on this. It also make me suspicious of those who are promoting and supporting this march.

    There is no easy or gentle way to do this gentleman… We are going to have to spill blood. WE MUST ACT! Do not pay 1 cent of income tax. Get armed in groups and head to Washington fighting mad. Any Russian or foreign troop should be looked upon as a deadly enemy and should be warned that if he raises his weapon he will be shot, period.

  52. Willard Aztec February 25, 2014 at 11:08 am

    I thought for a long time Americans would fight when the chips were down, now I am not so sure.
    When you give a man a badge (or a uniform) and a gun his sin nature often takes over and he becomes a law unto himself, or just blindly “follows orders.” That has proved true whether it was the army in 1932 (they obeyed orders and turned on their own peers) or local cops today (look at daily examples).
    Looking at history and how the Germans reacted to Hitler, I am afraid 90% of the population will roll over and say, “Whatever you say Mr. Obama/Hitler!”
    I am a vet and was once gung ho to march on Washington but now I suspect an individual defense plan is the best plan. And, when the time comes, natural leaders will arise out of necessity. I am suspicious of those who would lead 10 million unarmed men into one location for possible annihilation by gas or biological means.
    As for me I will stay ready and loaded at home, and will wait it out till I know I can trust my “leaders.”

    If the military were to act without the people it would be a coup…how many of We…the people is needed to allow the military to act for the people?
    Would not a gathering be the support of the people that in fact the military would need to honor their oath to defend and protect the Constitution for the United States of America?

    Anything that is planned and transmitted over electronics is giving information to the opposition. Eyes & ears are everywhere…those that claim to be awake fail to realize this when suggesting this and that to do…..good leaders do not broadcast their intent to the opposition.

    First messenger: Bikers Second messenger: Truckers Third messenger: The People …. if those that go ask The Lord to go before them all will be well, if all are acting in their own strength it will be in vain.
    All are correct in their discernment of OAS… intent and who is in control will determine failure or VICTORY!

    Lord, I pray for Your divine intervention, grace, mercy, and protection to all that would attend this event. Please cover them with Your Blood and if it be Your Will please send your warrior Michael to lead the way to victory for Your people …and we believe Your Holy Word II Chronicles 7:14, but nonethless, Thy Will be done to Thy glory in Your name, our King, our Lord, and our Savior!

How will they pay their bills while unemployed during this time. This plan is so STUPID it is either a trap or being led by a moron without ANY foresight. DON’T GO!

  56. jason February 25, 2014 at 12:02 pm


    Excellent article and I implore people to think about motives regarding the two men trying to lead this March on Washington. I have not agreed with this when it was first announced because it will make these vets easy targets and if people witness them crushed by this corrupt foreign corporation, in a blink of an eye, do you really think other Americans will stand up? No they won’t, they will either flee the country or will comply with their foreign masters.

    I am one of the silent ones who will be giving these foreign agents a run for their money when the time comes.

    That said, Dave are you watching what is going on in Connecticut? There is another powder keg about ready to blow. I really think the police will go after small groups of people and not all at once. That way, there will not be as much opposition. Divide and Conquer.

    God bless you Dave and keep bringing the truth to the front of the line.

  57. Elos February 25, 2014 at 12:06 pm

    Thanks for writing this. It seems writers/thinkers/doers like yourself draw in all types, People need to read their history books…especially their history of ancient peoples who have successfully won battles against their oppressors. Once you go on the offensive, you are on shaky ground.

    Common Denominators

    1 – They fought from a defensive position.
    2 – God was on their side (because of #1).
    3 – They were fighting for their liberties and to push back freedom-taking powers.They would kill if necessary, but weren’t “blood thirsty” people.

    Read your scriptures. At some point (probably years away), safe zones will be established across the country where like-minded people can flee for safety, or they can stay and fight it out (no telling what society will look like at that point).

    There are many of us quietly preparing for the days ahead. What an amazing time to be alive!

    Pray and prepare…water, food, utilitarian supplies – you will need them for yourself and to help good people that don’t have as many resources as you.

  58. Diogenes Shrugged February 25, 2014 at 12:13 pm

    Please speculate for me on what you think might have happened if the Bonus Army was armed to the teeth with .30-06 war rifles. Would MacArthur have proceeded with the rout? (My guess is that he wouldn’t have, regardless of what orders he was given.) Had a battle broken out, what would you have foreseen as the aftermath? (My guess is that this event would rank with major wars, and every school kid would at least be familiar with it.) Finally, what if the attendees of the May 16 OAS were encouraged to bear arms? (My guess is that LEOs and military men would chicken out – – like the cowards they’ve proven themselves so often to be – – when they see it won’t be as easy as when they manhandle young female jaywalkers.)

  60. John February 25, 2014 at 12:43 pm

    When I first heard about this protest, I thought good, someone is finally taking a stand for what is right.
    But at the same time I had a gut feeling that this is a trap. They will I.D. every freedom loving patriot and veteran that shows up, and what if they released a “BUG” into to the air, to kill off all these protesters. They could also stage a False Flag attack and blame in on some of the protesters, and then crack down really hard and arrest everyone.
    It may be better for everyone to stay home and form a small resistance cell. Strive for 12 people per cell. If your cell grows to 24 people, split into two cells, and so on.
    Thousands of cells in every town, city, county and state. Prepare and train.
    If they declare Martial Law and bring in UN troops or Russian and Chinese soldiers, imagine over 100,000 resistance cells springing into action in every town, city, county and state, won’t that be a sight to see!
    We can all be a part of the American Resistance Movement.
    Just a thought.

  61. David February 25, 2014 at 12:49 pm

    Dave, I must respectfully disagree. I am a veteran and I don’t think it would make sense to join any sort of guerilla movement if I thought that MOST Americans will not approve of our actions against THEIR government. I have to see some quantifiable evidence that there are enough Americans who want their country back and in the absence of that, there is no way I’ll stick my neck out for them only to have my head lopped off. OAS is what the Generals need to see before they take off and do what you have said they’re planning. If the sheople aren’t going to back a military uprising, no matter what they do it WILL fail. The backing and cooperation of the American people must be there for it to work and you know it.
    Now the Bonus Army was rewarded for their efforts, in spite of your statement to the contrary. The bonds they received were due to mature in 1945; these bonds DID NOT represent a “bonus,” they represented compensation of lost wages they incurred during the time they were fighting in the war. You need to keep that in mind. Congress was not obliged to give them one cent of it until the date of maturity. So, the action to occupy Washington to force the issue was limited to getting a bill passed which would give them an early payout. Congress could have dug in their heels and refused them; however, the bill passed in the House, but almost unanimously defeated by the Senate. After that, they continued their occupation, and it was AFTER that session of Congress was adjurned that Hoover issued his order to the Army to engage in their police action. It ended Hoover’s political career because of how his betrayal of US veterans so incensed the American people, and it made Roosevelt a shoe in winner in the Elections. Roosevelt effected an early payout to the Veterans in 1936. So, you cannot say they never saw any of their money.
    You can draw parallels between the march of the bonus army to OAS if you like. I knew this was going to happen from you naysayers, but there are major differences that defeat the parallels.
    1.) In 1932, the Bonus Army was roughly 45,000 men. OAS will be 10 Million or more, whether you scoff at that or not.
    2.) In 1932, the Bonus Army had a limited focus on the passage of a single bill. In 2014, OAS will demand the removal of the current criminal corporate government, and the reinstatement of a Constitutional government.
    3.) In 1932, the Army was deployed against the demonstrators, they already had taken a defensive posture against them even before they arrived. In 2014, the Army is waiting for a sign from the American people of their resolve to save the nation, requisite before they will take action.
    4.) In 1932, the Hoover Admnistration was not considered to be criminal, although many American voters did not favor Hoover’s lack of an adequate response to the stock market crash and the economic aftermath. In 2014, the Obama administration is viewed by millions as rogue, and out of control, a tyrannical dictatorship that is insinuating itself upon America right before our eyes. Even liberals who formerly supported Obama distance themselves and cannot agree with his heavy handed use of EO.
    5.) In 1932, America was proud of itself, It was proud of its government in Washington and proud of its contribution in WWI. In 2014, you find very little of any of these sentiments, in fact the opposite is what you see: That’s why both the Congress and the Executive see their public approval rating in the tank.
    6.) In 1932, the Bonus Army veterans set up their “Hooverville” in Anacostia. This was easily destroyed by the Army who burned it down. In 2014, Patriots will be spread out all over VA, MD, and in PA as well. From what I understand, this is already in progress. There won’t be a centralized location for them to hit.
    None of us can know what will happen on May 16th. To take the position that it will utterly fail, based on events of the past and then refuse your support because of that misses the point. You take your life in your hands every time you get in your car just to go to the store. No one is saying that there won’t be a response, and no one is saying there won’t be any danger, but we face danger every day. The danger of this government to the American people is not going to go away because as you recommend, people make their random acts of civil disobedience. What would happen if we didn’t take any risks, and just stay on the porch to stay out of danger? We face a fatal endgame no matter what and without any resistance because that would be unsafe or unsuccessful, their endgame is a done deal. None of us can accept that, Dave, it must be resisted, and resisted until it has been defeated. That’s what OAS is about. Otherwise we perish, of that we can rest assured.


  62. Jack February 25, 2014 at 1:00 pm

    My son and I discussed attending American Spring. My concern, in addition to yours, i.e., having so many patriots in one place, thus giving the enemy a decided advantage is this; imagine a million or more patriots (primarily men) being unable to protect themselves from a merciless onslaught and/or dealing with a catastrophic event, real or manufactured! How would we return to our families if an EMP attack renders our vehicles and communication means inoperable? Hopefully, your contact, indicating the covert ops to reduce the banker population is on target. However, in listening to your live broadcast the other night, I became somewhat confused. Did you imply that the banker’s premature demise issue is a function of disenfranchised and/or ex-military as well as actual Wall Street or Central Bankers?
    Please stay the course. There are more of us awakening daily and preparing for a worst case scenario. I’ve tried earnestly to speak about these issues but, most people can’t bring themselves to think about them much less do the homework required to verify. This includes most my children so, we have little hope of convincing the masses.

    Remember Pogo’s description of the enemy.

    When God removes His hand of protection from us, why do we yet pray that God will be on our side in time of war? Do we expect God to help us remain in our lawless state? Why do we value so highly the freedom to be disobedient and rebellious against God?


  64. Truthy1 February 25, 2014 at 1:10 pm

    American Patriots are red,white and not so blue blooded. We love our country but we have an information stumbling block. Everything we were taught is a lie ! That is one reason we each have a similar but different view point on a common situation or circumstance. We have each processed and pigeon holed the false teachings in such a way that hinders our ability to comprehend what is “really” going on and what “really” happened in the past. Every individual has his or her own “filing system” for how knowledge is retained and applied. We all tend to fall back on what we “know” and when that is corrupted we continue in a false paradigm that reinforces the counterfeit social experiments foisted on us. Remember,The victor writes history and incidentally two generations later it is cemented into fact and the falsehoods melt into oblivion.Here are a few examples.Robert E.Lee won the civil war and could have marched into Washington from Manassas undeterred after the Southern states constitutionally succeeded from the Union effectively canceling the contract between the states and dissolving the federal government.We had “no Legitimate government” for 10 years between 2/1/1861(Texas Secession,7th state to do so) and http://teamlaw.net/Mythology-CorpUS.htm . For you history buffs our “independence day” is not the 4rth of July 1776 (birth of Illuminatti) it is Sept.3,1783 according to the Treaty of Paris http://www.constitutionfacts.com/us-declaration-of-independence/treaty-of-paris/ My point is that we have a corrupted base that we are using to try to figure out a solution from. We need to re-educate ourselves first so that we can understand exactly what we are dealing with and how to win on paper what we have lost through poor stewardship and invasive corruption. We have always had freedom we just “chose” to relinquish our rights one baby step at a time. The water,on our brains,has been getting warmer and warmer since 9/3/1783.

  65. Capt. Karl February 25, 2014 at 1:12 pm

    I humbly and most fervently supplicate that this correspondence might reach the eyes of the most honorable and noble General Vallely;


    I have been in the Freedom/Patriot/TEA Party organizations since 2004 when I realized that our economy and the Republic were no longer viable. Using World economic history I was able to prognosticate in hundreds of Internet economic and investment forums in 2005-2007 that our economy was going to nearly collapse in Q4 of 2008 and millions would become unemployed. Because of this I went on a quest to find out what happened, what was the cause?

    The entire economic, political and much of our societal problems are the result of utter criminal contempt for the rule of our Ninth and Tenth Amendments (as well as much of the balance of our constitutional laws), which according to the preamble of The Constitution We The People, through our home countries which form “a more perfect Union” of fifty free and sovereign States, “ordained and established” upon our elected Republican and Democrat enemies of our Bill of Rights, to secure our wages, our salaries, our property so as to “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity” (preamble).

    The Ninth and Tenth Amendments limit the powers and spending by our elected Republican and Democrat enemies to the eighteen granted them as itemized under Article I Section 8 of the Constitution. This is also supported by the supremacy clause of Article VI clause 2 in that Congress and the Executive branch only have the power to make “Laws (meaning spending) of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof…” our Ninth and Tenth Amendment laws which we “ordained and established” upon them. The Tenth Amendment states; “The powers (meaning spending) not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” The Ninth Amendment states; “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”

    Our elected enemies of our Bill of Rights, have NO RIGHT OR POWER to spend money on anything that isn’t granted them under Article I Section 8. My organizations and I believe that the States should and must produce Joint State Sovereignty Resolutions with Arrest Provisions and commence well contemplated, well deliberated, well organized, well orchestrated incremental nullification of ALL unlawful Acts, usurpations, and spending by our elected enemies, without prejudice, until such time as our elected and wannabe elected enemies are brought into compliance with the rule of our Ninth and Tenth Amendment laws as well as the findings and rulings of the SCOTUS regarding the ratification of the Sixteenth Amendment.

    Furthermore, the Supreme Court of The United States has found and ruled that; “The ratification of the Sixteenth Amendment confers no new taxes on anyone who wasn’t taxable before it.” All eighteen spending grants, including all Military spending, is far more than paid for by the lawful and Constitutional revenue streams provided for by the Framers of The Constitution, not including income taxes. All gross wages and salaries are vitally and crucially needed by our families and our States to pay for all of the needs, wants and desires that WE decide is best for us and our free and sovereign home Countries which form “a more perfect Union”.

    I believe that Operation American Spring should clearly declare that the Prime Directive is to restore the rule of our Ninth and Tenth Amendment supreme law of the land ‘on our replacement personnel first and foremost’ as well as the balance of our elected Republican and Democrat criminal enemies of our Bill of Rights and to incrementally bring home all of the usurpations, powers, and stolen without rule of law gross wages and salaries back to the people and the States. Additionally, I believe it would behoove us to use this massive platform to encourage all States and the people thereof, to cause to be sponsored State Sovereignty Resolutions with Arrest Provisions which along with vital companion legislation to prepare all State Law Enforcement personnel and State National Guard units to support and defend our Ninth and Tenth Amendment laws against all enemies, both elected and their jackbooted minions of tyranny and oppression in the IRS and the balance of their usurped alphabet soup agencies of terror against the American people and our Constitutional laws which We ordained and established upon them.

    The Secondary Directive shall be to restore the balance of our Bill of Rights, the Constitution and specifically the money clauses of Article I Sections 8 (clause 5) and 10 (clause 1) to protect the people and our economy, our Rights, our savings and our freedom from our elected enemies of the Constitution.

    Last of the Directives shall be to replace our elected usurping despotic President and the worst Republican and Democrat usurpers of our Ninth and Tenth Amendment laws and secondarily our 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th and 6th Amendment protections as well. The Ninth and Tenth Amendment laws naturally protect the balance of our Bill of Rights and the Constitution nearly on automatic pilot.

    Operation American Spring must be primarily about restoring the rule of our laws not only upon all elected Republican and Democrat enemies of the constitution but also upon our temporary replacements, or it will technically be a coup and will cause understandable consternation and concern among most Americans.

    Dave I had written you about this topic, I was unsure, but had a bad feeling. Bless you for codifying why OAS is a bad idea. Why make it easier to round us up, knowing what we know about NDAA and the camps?

    I really like the idea of many local OAS throughout the Republic on that day. Anyone in NYC want to do a peaceful sit-in at the Fed, or at the Tower of Power at 55 Water Street?

    Throughout the nation Common Law Grand Juries as provided for in the Constitution are being denied seating. In NYS they have already indicted some of the criminals running the NYS Court System, which is why the unlawful and fraudulent court system (corporation with administrators not true judges) is fighting seating Common Law Grand Juries. We need guerilla tactics by the military AND a mechanism to deal with the thousands of traitors to the Republic like “court” officials.

    I came across a short article in “Political Animal” Jan. 27, 2014 by Jude Eden. It clearly lays out the dangers of this plan!

    I also saw a video promoting O.A.S.. It showed a Pete Martino, former marine colonel, explaining that local and state law enforcement has become indistinguishable from the military, as a means of getting around the fact that it is unconstitutional for the military to target Americans. However, the video is simply TOO EXCELLENT, TOO SLICK, TOO WELL-CRAFTED. It is a quality propaganda weapon, intended to create a huge, dangerous march that will necessitate the implementation of martial law and bring in the N.W.O..

    This event in May will be very interesting. The gov will not know everyone by name who shows up, and a family member may be at home guarding the guns, etc. I used to attend rallies, gatherings, but haven’t in many years, as no results ever come from it. Now days with cameras, other intel, I tend to hunker down staying low key, not involved in any group activities; waiting instead for freedom fighters to emerge as they will be assisted with logistics/supplies by older/disabled/female patriots unable to do much else. I communicate with very few in a small circle. Fighters will need back up/spt from patriots unable to do much else, so if you are one of these older or disabled folks, start buying what you can afford and stock pile for another future revolution.

    There is a lot of good thoughts and ideas here but one has to ask will we even make it that far, to May 16th before the bottom falls out? The thief in the night is out there and I don’t mean Jesus Christ our Saviour. For those who speak of the Rapture, it will happen, question is is it before or after the tribulation. On a whole one would have to surmize that we as a nation do not deverve to be raptured before the tribulation. After all we let the monster get this big. We were apathethic, should we not reap from the seeds we’ve sown? I hope not but who can be sure. I hope to be lifted to Heaven before it all breaks loose but I know in my heart I didn’t do enough, I started too late. I was apathethic. I stood against the giant three times and lost running for political office. I can’t fight from the inside so I am in the street. I deserve what I am dealt and will deal with it. We have to stand together, divided we will fall.

    “I have received quite a few requests from people who want me to endorse Operation American Spring by expressing the belief that all we need to do is to stand up to tyranny, expose the tyranny and tyranny will run for cover.”

    Linda Williams
    “The analysis of this American “spring” seems totally accurate, insightful and highly protective of any patriots who might consider attempting it. The idea was likely spearheaded or adopted by the powers, since they always like to control opposition and lead people to their demise. What could be of interest is a mirage “spring,” where vast numbers of people appear intent upon carrying out the plan, but never show up.”


    I’m compelled to agree to an extent:
    1). The American Spring appears too much like the Arab Spring, and this was used to usher in the Muslim Brotherhood and Al-Qaeda arms to power in various regions like Tunisia, Syria, and Egypt for the former.
    2). The history of the civil rights movements center around bypassing the States to plead with the Federal government dually amounting to pegging from the central government and setting the past precedent for the perverted interpretation of the Supremacy Clause.
    3). It very much does entice protestors to march onto DC where the minions or aka Representatives of the Dummies Club reside and make policy. There’s an awful lot of military and security personnel in the region, and it is rather coincidence that this protest occurs at DC that the town martial law practice town seems to resemble with DC subway’s logo and etc.

    … Banking, Agriculture, and Medical mergers with government are already effectively made; they just haven’t become official yet. Mergers are the hallmark of Stage 3 Bismarkianism, so this kind of protest is in actuality is definitely placing political dissidents into the dangerous hands of psychopaths, sociopaths, rapists, and control freaks. They’re not going to arrest them in no different manner Obama pardoned the W. Bush administration of war crimes.

    “Taking back our government need not involve the needless creation of martyrs.”

    I seriously doubt that they’ll be martyred outside being disappeared and disposed of without public scrutiny. NDAA is a mechanism that enables just that, so they can be crushed without the media broadcasting the crackdown. Even if DC doesn’t violently crush it, the dissidents will likely be used to test disappear and dispose of dissidence.

    It is a classic case of misdiagnosing the stages; public-private mergers are the hallmark of stage 3 Bismarkianism that is used to develop the power-structure. Stage 4 is roll out or implementation of the power-structure typically using martial law.

    “One organizing principle of warfare is based upon the notion of not challenging the enemy where they are strong. If millions of Americans, and I doubt that very many people could be brought to DC, were to be opposed and crushed, they would have played into the strength of our enemies.”

    Well, I’ll defer to you as you’re the one with military sources. I was under the impression the main principle of warfare is acknowledging the stage/environment as well as the fronts posed against you, and it’s paramount to suicide to take the fight deep into the opposition’s territory that is not only readily fortified but readily re-supplied, reinforced, and more than capable of cutting of your retreat. Since Operation American Spring isn’t operating from a base of operations, there is no functional retreat. The movement’s only defense is attempting to use numbers as a matter of defensibility; unfortunately, military grade weaponry turns numbers to dust quite rapidly. With civil disobedience as the main weapon, my money is on a couple of heavy machine guns, sniper teams, and the like. Considering, Occupy Wall Street crackdown was coordinated with DHS and local enforcement agencies; I seriously doubt that these protestors should the eventual crackdown comes will be woefully screwed.

    “Walmart shoppers, you are funding tyranny. Boycott Walmart, Kmart and all the other slave marts controlled by the globalists.”

    Dave, the government already has that covered in a multiple ways through tax dollar’s, funneling employees, regulations, and trade agreements like TPP to finish the unofficial officialdom of that particular governmental-private merger. Hyperinflation will be the death nail for the free market, and those mergers in place makes their loses absorbed by the remaining independent wealth.
    The obvious response to even purchases made at re-used stores respectively is increase tax rates for further subsidies after the reserve prints it, or it’ll become illegal, which I believe was just in 2013 was attempted but failed for the time being or worse mandated to make the purchases. They can actually do that en-mass and increase taxes without too much trouble; it’s not like the mechanisms aren’t already there.

    Frankly, I think that it would be better to solidify the group into a region, so the movements attains the solidified and unified ground to operate. The biggest risks are that the government will use it on par to Waco or some of its exercises. At the very least, it forces the facade to be unmasked with a group who knows that they’ll eventually come for them.

    Rambo has the right idea, wrong geography. The south died in 1865. The fascists-Nazis died in 1945. The only victors in every war since 1860 have been the international bankers and their socialist-communist utopian collectivists. The American experiment in limited government died along with the South in 1865. State sovereignty and the soveriegn Citizens of each state is a cruel joke that has died in stages ever since 1865 to 1930. Anyone who signs a 1040, has a SS number and receives any “benefit” from the banker owned and controlled municiple corporation of Washington D.C. is a serf and a pawn of the utopian NWO.
    Since 1860 the US Government has been and is the greatest criminal enterpirse in the history of the world.
    This country as setup by the founders can’t be saved and a country that can’t be saved shouldn’t be saved. It would be best to start all over if there is anyone alive to begin anew.
    The so-called Operation American Spring as Dave says “Is Doomed to Fail” and is analogous to spiting into the wind. Just like this comment.
    Those who get on their knees are just where the enemies of the gentiles want them as the 9MM or 45 slug enters the base of their skull.
    There is a place. It has a population 85% white. It’s called the Pacific NW of the existing utopian collectivist muti-cultural United States. It is the only feasible place to start freedoms ring anew on this continent.

    Your analysis here is brilliant, because it’s based on a down-to-earth, “Common sense” depiction of our experience past and present.

    “Operation American Spring” is but another testimonial to the inherent conservatism of our species.

    Historically, as productive-distributive systems began to fail and the elites who controlled them protected their hegemonic interests with measures which expropriated people below, those being expropriated always took the same timid course, using the same short-sighted logics.

    During the years/months/days which preceded anti-feudal revolutions in England, France, Russia and China, increasingly injured majorities reasoned that the kings, presidents and parliaments who governed their lives failed to understand their “true” situations and tried to enlighten them with letters and petitions. (Today they use phone calls emails and faxes.)

    Of course, such educational operations invariably failed, since the economies in question were sharply contracting and any steps taken to protect the middle and lower classes would have injured the elites upon whom the political authorities’ personal statuses depended.

    So, the injured majorities reluctantly moved to the second stage. They began protesting outside parliaments and palace doors, where they were broken and bloodied by soldiers and police who had to defend the elites to maintain their own, increasingly shaky, middle class existences.

    Only with the continued worsening of their conditions did people finally decide the only workable option was to set their own course, and govern themselves via revolutions.

    Re the subject of self-governance, Marx argued if some members of a revolutionary class enjoy an elite social existence vis-a-vis the others, when the revolution ends they will, because they must, take control in order to defend their favored interests. Whereupon, any further movement toward genuine democracy will cease.

    Now, I submit old Karl hit THAT nail on the head. The overthrow of Louis XVI in France, the taking political power from wealthy landowners and razing the country’s exhausted feudal system, was followed by (albeit, at the time progressive), financial-industrial elites seizing power and stomping the little people back into line. In short, political authority was taken from feudalism’s political protectors—Louis XVI, counts, dukes and lord—and grasped by representatives of France’s nascent financial-industrial-elite, i.e., capitalist structure: first Robespierre and his minions, then Napoleon et al.

    Similarly in Russia and China, exhausted feudal systems were replaced by more viable state-capitalist orders. And the political power wielded by defenders of feudalism in its final hour, Alexander Kerensky, Chiang kai-shek and their cohorts, was taken by Lenin, Trotsky, Mao Tse-tung and other representatives of the financiers and industrialists who would dominate their countries’ newborn state-capitalist orders. The peasants and workers who continued resisting were then beaten into going along.

    During the Great Depression, Stalin protected the U.S.S.R.s weak and non-competitive state-capitalist system with genocide, slaughtering millions of peasants, and enslaving tens-of-millions of others who resisted; mainly peasants, but a significant number of workers, along with a tiny minority of bureaucrats who had consciences and compassion. Mao and his state-capitalist minions oversaw the same endeavor in China, killing and enslaving still larger numbers to make their growing state-capitalist system operable.

    A final comment about our species unshakeable conservatism: Today, Libertarians, and a small number of 1960s-1980s leftists who support them, loudly declare that the old “Left vs. Right” paradigm is dead, then, continue employing its definitions and reach conclusions which those definitions dictate. Obama, Biden, Feinstein, Reid, Pelosi et al. are hilariously called “socialists,” even “communists,” designations Obama, Biden, Pelosi et al., like their European counterparts, often self-servingly give themselves, while, to a man and woman, they are financed by the world’s largest capitalist banks and corporations.

    And despite the fact Old Karl Marx spent his life writing and ranting against people who proposed “the state” should take care of everyone, (often driving Marx up the wall by labeling themselves “Marxists”), many Libertarians, indeed, I suspect most, call our exhausted state-capitalist system itself “socialist,” a system which, I believe, has now entered its terminal stage.

    In my opinion, solving the economic and environmental problems which if not dealt with will destroy us, is going to require formulating OUR OWN definitions and using them to think for ourselves.

  77. Harry February 25, 2014 at 4:05 pm

    Unfortunately Mr. Hodges writes without contacting anyone from Operation American Spring so far as I know. He sure hasn’t spoken with me. He makes many assumptions, I guess that’s his privilege but it should be noted. Most of his article is simply his subjective opinion and that’s fine.
    OAS is in the mobilization phase at this time, public announcement of demands/grievance/legal aspects will be made public as deemed appropriate. We have just less than 90 days before millions arrive in D.C. to challenge the lawless, deceiving, betraying, self-serving leadership in the White House, Congress and Courts.
    We have two choices as most believe…we can surrender or take action. Too much blood, lives, body parts, family destruction given over 230 years to allow a socialist, communist in the White House to drive America into the abyss.
    Many whine about risk…America has fought all over the world to help other nations threatened with dictators, tyranny at a huge price. Now that America is threatened, am I too believe we would shrink from defending our own nation because of a perceived risk to our person? If so, then perhaps that that believe the risk is too great should toward their children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and reflect on what we might be leaving them?
    Surrender if you must, but not me, not ever……….God bless every citizen of the United States of America.


  78. dave stearns February 25, 2014 at 4:44 pm

    While there may or may not be a coup by the military at some point, what no one realizes is that we are being led right into the Great Tribulation and the worst part of the book of Revelations. As such come the fall of 2014 God will start marking his 144,000 elect. Those elect will stand up and warn everyone who will listen the Great and Terrible Day of the Lord is imminent and it is now time to flee danger zones. Pray your flight is not next winter for then will be Great Tribulation. Once that 6 day event has passed those two witnesses of Revelations 11 will be in charge I guarantee it. They will be given the power to close the heavens and prevent any rain at all from falling during the entire length of their testimony. They will be given the power to turn waters into blood. They will be given the power to bring plagues of lice flies frogs etc. on the earth. That doesn’t mean they will utilize that power but they will have that power nonetheless at God’s direction of course as they report to him and to him only. Anyone who tries to hurt them, in this manner he must be killed. Yeah, I think it’s safe to say those two will be in charge of planet earth. If and when they hit you with plagues of trillions of flies or locusts that just won’t ever go away, you’ll repent, just watch. Very soon repentance will no longer be an option, repentance and obedience will be a requirement if you wish to live. Refusal will result in your death. It’s commonly called Judgment Day and it’s almost here. God has always been in charge and he is sending his two prophets. They will be stepping forward at the appointed time just a few months away now. Keep the faith, God bless.

  79. Snake February 25, 2014 at 5:12 pm

    At this point I hate to say it but nothing is going to oppose this coming World Government. I have been watching the stupid sheeple for five plus years and there isn’t enough care in them to oppose a rat in a pantry. Want proof? Go to the local airport and watch the sheep obey orders from a idiot TSA force that probably has a collective IQ in the MR range. Go to the local stores, any of them it doesn’t matter, Walmart, Whole Foods etc. and see what kind of “informed” population is in there. The only difference you will find are sheeple people of various socioeconomic levels but hey all have their heads crammed into their dumb phones just alike. Go to the sports arenas and watch the sheeple put their little hands over their hearts and sing their little anthems to the NWO flag and army. Go freaking anywhere you want and try to keep from running into an American zombie! I am at the point of that show in the Matrix where the guy just wants to be reinserted back into the program as a wealthy guy with a bunch of women and a good life. Ok I am not that much of a sell out but I just truly don’t see a way out of this and maybe I need an attitude check but damn I get sick of looking at stupid dumbed down idiots all the time anywhere I go….

    I definitely want to be in the half you are not in. You should be totally ashamed of yourself for this kind of crap. Everything else you say that may be of genuine value goes down the toilet when you show your true bigoted self with this kind of fifth.

  81. Andy Evenson February 25, 2014 at 6:15 pm

    Dave, I have been reading your articles for a few months.This is my first post, as it is a topic which I am passionate towards. I feel that OAS is a necessary component toward trying to wake up the sheeple. I feel that the feds will need a very legitimate reason to create bloodshed in the peaceful protest. They cannot just order the hit squads to bully the patriots with lethal force unless a shot has been fired by a patriot. Time is in short supply to wake up the uninformed, and the feds will have their hands tied to try to keep them asleep. I agree with your intellect, and solutions but don’t understand how organization can be accomplished if/when the SHTF. I’m thinking that the OAS should be a starting point as to how we may further understand what is at stake. I pray that no blood will be shed, but it would be a patriots blood shed, if it would occur. I agree with Frank and Ellen’s posts above, and Dave, thank for your input and God bless you.

  82. Shaping the Battlefield Space February 25, 2014 at 6:41 pm

    Thank you, Mr. Hodges!

    You are helping us to “shape the battlefield space” by reminding us of the generals, officers, and others who’ve been kicked out of the regime and their ability to FORCEFULLY resist, perhaps with our help, all of our help, whatever kind we can provide, AT THE RIGHT TIME. Let’s continue to thumb down this 5/16 event for what it is, A TRAP! Let’s give time, prayer, help (now if we’re connected to them) and/or help later, when it’s needed, to the effectual FORCE Mr. Hodges refers to. Seriously, in our individual desires to be a liberty hero (be honest, we all want to be liberty heroes) let’s none of us jump the gun on God’s perfect timing, in all these matters. Let’s face it, we are already under attack and targeted, spiritually (by the devil and his minions, if we’re Christ followers), economically and militarily (plans, executive orders and unseen actions at this point). Our counter-attack should be taken on many fronts presently, but not militarily, not yet! Dave referred to economic resistance. Let’s add spiritual resistance to that. Spiritual resistance of the devil presupposes submission to God (James 4:7… Submit yourselves to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you). Ron Paul and many others remind us to withdraw from the system in as many ways as possible and live independently from the grid, figuratively and literally if possible, for we shall most certainly some day (perhaps too soon!) be living off the grid anyway. Let’s get ready and be able to help as many others as possible. When we withdraw our consent and dependence on the tyrants, their true nature will most certainly come forth, for their is nothing more that they hate than ones who are not dependent on their “magnanimity.” Remember Daniel and his three friends who refused to bow down to the image of Nebuchadnezzar! The powers/devils that be at that time didn’t like that too much. They threw them into the fiery furnace but the Son of Man stood with them in the fire and they weren’t burned but were delivered. God has a WAY of turning what the enemy means for evil into good… for God’s glory! (Gen. 50:20) AND REMEMBER THIS: “When the enemy comes in like a flood, the LORD will raise a STANDARD against him” Pray for the lifting up of THAT STANDARD and for each of us gathering to that standard under HIM and against the Enemy, especially against the devil!!!

  83. Bartek February 25, 2014 at 6:56 pm

    It’s now or never !

    Dave, if predicted ten million citizens show up at the white house gaten and another ten or more millions stay home ready to support the movement by any means, then I think there is a great possibility for success. Waiting for the army veterrans to act may proof as a misfonate miscalculation, both, in time and readiness for the unavoidable final battle . Yes, we all need to learn base upon history lessons, but there is a moment in our lifetime where peaceful compromises give a wat to more drastic operation led by ordinary people demanding their simple rights written in the Constitution, and above all given to all humans by God’s just law.

  85. Tony February 25, 2014 at 10:17 pm

    Man, watching the film on the attack on our WW1 vets really boiled my blood. Patton, MacArther and Eisenhower were simply cowardous war hawks who displayed no respect whatsoever towards an older generation who fought before them. If you follow their careers, especially MacArthur and Patton, you will see how self important and egotistical their personalities played out. Same thing happened to all the Filipinos who fought with all they had for MacArthur during WW2, only to get robbed out of their promised bonuses too.

  86. Joe McCaffery February 25, 2014 at 10:49 pm

    Dave, Spot on analysis. One other reason I came across which says these are not the right people is that General Valally was videotaped on patrol with the Free Syrian Army (FSA) . This means that American Spring is backed by the bankers.

    Wm. B. Stoecker, I really missed your comment today but read your response to the Reader Forum in the Jan/Feb issue of Atlantis Rising regarding the Suspension of Disbelief article. I recognized your name as a regular contributor to my long time favorite magazine the first time you posted a comment to Dave’s articles. I commend you on your depth and regard you to be one who thinks “outta the box” and you continuously keep your focus on “the big picture” and not get caught up in the minutia of the day. You are always on point and don’t waste words.

  89. Ramona February 26, 2014 at 12:11 am

    One key element left out is the element of surprise. The regime will have had six months to prepare, store munitions at strategic places, get their provocateurs trained and ready, and then wait. For the unarmed to come to them. Not so long ago in an interview Bill Ayers said the only thing he regretted about his past was that he didn’t blow up enough things. Will he get a chance now in his old age? Unarmed patriots on foot carrying all their provisions while the government has all the ammo, weapons, MRAPs, tanks, drones, vehicles of all kinds, whatever. I’ve been saying that BHO would probably look out the window at the crowds, get on Marine I to take him to his next golf game. Just what would remove him? He won’t leave the WH just because a bunch of people are camping out and clogging the town. He’ll simply wait it out.. He has the food, shelter, water, bathrooms, beds, etc. How will the millions go to the toilet? Porta-potties? Who pays? Who delivers? Who maintains for weeks? Where does all the food come from? And water? He will not leave quietly. Nor will Valerie and his other cohorts. People on the lawn will evict him? Not even in ordinary situations does that happen, eviction of a tenant or a squatter. It will take the military and the Provost. They will know pretty accurately the number of people that are coming by monitoring trains and planes and buses and the highways. They will know, and they will be prepared. Unarmed patriots on foot carrying supplies can be herded and manipulated. Try going sideways to the direction of a moving or even panicking crowd. Or back the other way. These are a few of the ideas I’ve had since the announcement. The element of surprise is long gone. They will be prepared but the ordinary citizen who has never been in war will not be. And for all that, the hoped for removal will not happen unless there are other plans behind the scenes that will happen simultaneously. And that could be done tomorrow. And should be.

This article was your finest and most accurate and blunt to the only options available. “This would send a clear message to every other American that resistance is futile.” Precisely why I chose to leave, there are many who want change, but not enough that know how to execute the only winning strategies. 100 million today dependent on Govt to survive and soon another 50 million will mean half the population, 1 of every 2 people will need the Govt to live and will defend their only observable option.
    “Hit these people where it hurts, in the pocketbook” The only plausible option that you will at least have a direct impact every day upon them and survive it.

    Its time for economic terrorism! Do you want to see real results? Then pick two competing corporations, small ones at first to hone your technique. Lets say, we start with McDonalds and Burger King. Everyone that wants to say remove Pelosi from office will, let’s just pick one innocent company, Burger King, and boycott them for a year. Now, Burger King had nothing to do with Pelosi being in office, they are just the victim of this new guerilla war. Put Burger King out of business. Then make a new demand arrest Eric Holder or we bankrupt Home Depot by boycott. Move on to bigger fish. Impeach Obama or Walmart is done for. This is a technique that was used by Blacks in Louisiana against unfair businesses and it works. I think Obama would be gone long before Walmart folds.

    So your plan is for everyone to slowly work to take away the power that controls DC and our country, while each and every day more of our liberties are being stolen from us. Good Job! Most Americans have come to the realization that we can’t wait for the ship to right itself. I applaud OAS for taking a stand, and will be happy to be involved in the process. If that means being a Martyr, then so be it, but I can’t look my Grandchildren in the eye, and tell them, this is what is left of the America and our Constitution, that too many people died to defend. You keep looking to the past, for a prediction of the future (and don’t give me the old “History repeats itself” speech). I will look to the future to change history. If we succeed, you will jump on the bandwagon, and if we should fail, you can pat yourself on the back for being right, but you will still be living in an America, that most of us don’t recognize any more, and that our founders would be ashamed of.

    Here’s what will happen at this so called American Spring march: The CIA will have some of their MK Ultra mind controlled slaves (same type they use in school shootings) infiltrate the peaceful patriot group marching that will instigate violence of some kind and it’s certain that they will be armed by their masters and will be programmed to use their guns so that the FakeStream Media Whores can report to the sheeple that those “evil” patriots are nothing but gun toting violent nut jobs. Of course the ones who do the actual violence will be under the direction and control of the government, not the one’s fighting for truth and justice, albeit in ignorance, as in every false flag scenario in the past.

    Blood will be spilled, regardless of the means of resistance. Tax protesters will be SWATed like flies in the most public way possible…in order to set an example. Journalists are already being harassed, arrested…. killed (Breitbart, Hodges….possibly Clancy). The actions of the NSA, IRS and the other alphabet agencies…. This “war” has been hot for quite some time now….too many Americans paid little or no attention to the activities of the military/LE partnership in the wake of Katrina, the aftermath of the Boston Marathon Bombing where citizens were dragged from their homes. What more has to happen before we all realize that the enemy is within the gates, and is imposing its will freely and without any type of meaningful resistance. These seemingly small steps that are ( on outward appearance) unrelated, are quickly building to an unrelenting march by our rogue government and those pulling its strings. The window for non-violent reformation of this broken government is rapidly closing…waiting for it to slam shut is NOT the answer. Waiting for the fired military officers to lead a revolt (totally un Constitutional) is nothing more than pissing in the wind. Implementing economic sanctions by WE the People will only work if EVERYONE participates…. What are the chances of THAT ever happening….Blood WILL be spilled.

    Disagree with Dave. If this demonstration does not work, as Dave says, then why is it so successful in Egypt, Cyprus, Yemen & other countries in the past 24 months?

    Sorry Dave, but what happens May16th may be good for Americans to experience or see the brutal tyranny when the Nazi police beat American citizens.

    Uh, didn’t we have this about two years ago when a bunch of rednecks went to Washington to shoot the politicians and they got arrested walking out their front door? And, those that made it that far found roadblocks checking for guns and they got arrested?

    Yeah, this will work out great. You never tell the enemy what you are doing. What if we had told our enemies that we were coming at a certain day and time? That would have been great for WW1 and WW2.

    These generals should know better than to pull something like this. I like the idea of attrition. lay low and take them out one at a time. Hey, they are good at blowing up people’s cars, planes, and what not. What if that was to start happening to corrupt cops, judges, and politicians?

    They wouldn’t know what to think. They always look for the loud mouth militia nut who makes his intentions known.

    I do beleive that the time for talk is over, but we can’t sail into D.C. riding high and smirking. It will have to come from two places, the military and the underground covert forces like what we saw in Ireland. You may not like the IRA, but they gave the British fits. Applying pressure from both below and top will make these NWO types fall dead of a heart attack.

    But, I am just dreaming since even the majority of gun owners are sitting at home right now watching American Idol.

    Dave is so right in the fundamental insights he has regarding “feeding the beast”. If this criminal type capitalism is being used in fascist style against citizens, the only way citizens can win, is by not playing the game. That starves the beast and ends or changes the game. Thanks Dave for another great article.

    Undoubtedly, you either read “The Art of War” or you are very insightful.

  100. […] I have received quite a few requests from people who want me to endorse Operation American Spring by expressing the belief that all we need to do is to stand up to tyranny, expose the tyranny and tyranny will run for cover. When American protesters show up in DC on May 16, 2014, the government will indeed run. They will run to retrieve their guns. This event, if carried out in the proposed fashion, will end very badly for when the people rise up and aggressively oppose governmental tyranny, the government will strike back. And this …read more […]

    I believe, in order for the common man to thrive we must stop playing the globalist games on all levels. We must withdraw our support from the beast.

    Let’s focus on what we can do. Once we know the globalists game, we know where they are vulnerable. We also know where their strength lies. If they can control the weather, then they can control whether you live or die, literally. They have already killed millions of people with weather modification.

    We must stay away from the streets and rioting until we have a majority with us. They are well prepared for us. We need to build our own systems of trade and barter, food production, water storage, energy etc. to counteract what they are doing.

    Most of all we need to get HAARP shut down, globally. We need to confront the hoax of global warming and explain the sham of United Nations Agenda 21.

    No, my fellow patriots, don’t go on the streets to be arrested and have your head bashed in. Fight the globalists by withdarwing your support on every level and we must demand, worlwide, that HAARP be shut down immediately.

    just another coward slowing down the revolution…..only 3% wanted America to be free from the Brits. Join the 97% of cowards happy to do nothing but make pathetic and weak suggestions on the internet. crawl back to your moms basement coward.

    The movement should therefore use guerrilla tactics. Amass your 10m but use the exercise to teach them how not to shop with the Beast. Create an expectancy that another flash 10m march will be necessary but this time hopefully your generals are ready. Take your concerns to the generals. You have until May 25 to organize this.
