to hit D.C. to oust Obama, Biden, Boehner, Holder



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

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

“We are calling for [their] removal … as a start toward constitutional restoration,” said retired Army Col. Harry Riley, the leader of the group, Raw Story reported. “They have all abandoned the U.S. Constitution, are unworthy to be retained in a position that calls for servant status.”

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

Army reservists? What for? They don't do crowd control. Or even moron control.

Tens Of People Descend Upon The Capitol To Drive The Obama Administration Out Of Office




The “second American revolution” got off to a slow start in Washington, DC on Friday, falling roughly 9,999,950 people short of their goal of 10 million angry, constitution-weilding participants. (That was the low-end estimate. They were prepared for upwards of 30 million).


When Col. Harry Riley announced his plan for an Operation American Spring, he sought to evoke the same kind of populist uprising that toppled regimes in the Middle East, protests that were collectively given the moniker Arab Spring.


And while the photos that poured in from Tahrir Square were incredible, depicting tens of thousands of people in the streets, the pictures from American Spring were…less so:




The few who did make it to Washington, D.C came with a laundry list of grievances, ranging from Benghazi, to Obamacare, to President Obama’s birth certificate, to general lawlessness.

Ohio National Guard. Reporting ultimately to Governor James Rhodes, not to President Nixon.

Unlike the Federal agents at Waco and Ruby Ridge, who did report ultimately to President Clinton.

All this patriot and anarchist nonsense is laughable. The government is elected
by the majority of people and Obama Biden is who was elected. These groups
are like turning the country over to the rabble in some measure. Donald Trump
and Rush along with look as silly though
I hope the military and DC Police take a round out of them its time someone did.
I am so tired of these religious nuts and the hand over the heart patriots and
endless lines of people looking everywhere for hero's to fill the void in their own
lives.
Obama and Biden are in now and these people are upset wait till Clinton wins
and they are confronted with her she is tougher than Obama. When will the
Republicans catch on, the immigrants, minorities the special interests in terms
of social programs and seniors are the ones they should be getting votes from
not the twentieth century old white folks they are not living in the high population
areas.

It doesn't make sense to directly confront Uncle Sam. Asymmetry is the method. Uncle Sam can't cope with open source warfare.

Pretty funny. I wonder if they actually believed they could do something like this or if they were just bored and don't mind making fools of themselves.

The military won't be involved at all and the MPD have seen a lot worse than the Million Moron March without losing their cool.

Has anyone heard about the Metcalf Incident?

Taking Down Silicon Valley's Electrical Grid with Rifles?

"...[T]he black art of taking down a [power] grid is network analysis. Find the right node at the right time and an entire region comes down. The more load on the system (afternoon + late summer + heat wave) or in combination with a denial of supply (from out of state based load suppliers) the bigger the cascade of failure...."

If they want to remove these people from office, they are free to try in the next election.

Though since the US has supported the same fiasco to occur in the Ukraine, I can understand their confusion.

Proving exactly what? Other than the person doing it is a moron and better hope the police catch him before the people that lost their air conditioning do.

That depends on whether one believes in the utility of collapsing a political system by taking apart its economic underpinnings. It's a form of open source warfare against which the established order has no effective defense.

What you all seem to be missing in your rush to hysterical mockery is that unfortunately these people are right. Our govts represent the 1% and corporate sponsors not the citizens. Govts are restricting your freedoms and rights every day and it would seem from this thread you are mostly all too f*cking stupid to see it. Have a lovely day.

We might "seem" to be missing that, but we aren't. We're mocking the ineffectuality of teabaggers in organizing a peaceful protest, much less a revolution.

Your comment smacks of the "false dichotomy," i.e., "if you don't enthusiastically applaud every crack-brained protest against the government, you must therefore support everything the government does. There is no third choice."

It's a logical fallacy.

Hey if you love these guys so much, they left a seat for you.

Regardless if they are opposed to the same people you are, what exactly makes you think these guys would do any better and not make your life even worse?

We all seen what happens when these kinds of lunatics forcefully and un-democratically remove those in power that are keeping some sort of order.

Civil War usually ensues, or the vacuum of power is filled by extremists & before you know it, your regular day eating dinner peacefully with your family is changed to gunshots and bombs going off in your neighborhood and people being dragged away from their homes by lynch mobs or people supporting those now in power who have no idea how to maintain stability.

Most of these nut jobs only plan as far ahead as removing those they don't like but rarely ever look at the big picture and have some sort of logical plan to follow through with. If they do, chances are, those plans are never going to benefit anybody but themselves and your life is going to get a lot more difficult than the one you currently take for granted.

If people want change and want to replace those in power, then there are right ways to go about it. Getting involved with extremists and supporting an un-democratic & possibly violent action is not the right way.

But you're right, we're just too f*cking stupid to realize that lunatics like these people are more trustworthy even though we know little of their full agenda or their long term plans.

The true beauty of democracy is that we are all free to express our views openly without reservation. While these few people are boisterous and highly demonstrative (which is their right to be), the majority of Americans affirm the system as it is. No doubt there are deficiencies in our system such as police and prosecutor abuses, selective enforcement of the laws, and others that we have discussed here. But the better thing is to work with it in the hope of improving it rather than just criticizing.

I agree. It makes more sense to use the tactics of Saul Alinsky, Richard Piven and Frances Cloward.
