(Before It's News)

Colonel Harry Riley, U.S. Army (Ret.) served 34 years in the military before retiring in 1992.  His assignments include Executive Officer and Commander, Signals Research unit 2, Zweibruecken, Germany (1966-1968); II Corps Military Intelligence Detachment Advisor, and Combat Assistance team Commander supporting Army of Vietnam 1st Battalion, 47th Infantry Regiment Vietnam (1969-1970); Staff Officer and Commander, 2d Operations Battalion, U. S. Army Field station Augsburg, Germany (1976-1979); Staff Officer for the Assistant Chief of Staff Intelligence and Management Directorate, Office of the Chief of Staff Army, Pentagon (1979-1984); Division Chief, National Security Agency, Fort Meade Maryland (1984-1986); Commander, 712th Military Intelligence Battalion, Augsburg, Germany (1986-1988); Division Chief, National Security Agency, Fort Meade, Maryland (1988-1991); and Deputy Offlce Chief National Security Agency, Fort Meade 19Q1-1992). Colonel Riley also served additional tours ln Germany (1956-1959); Vietnam (1962); and Thailand (1962-1963) as an enlisted soldier.

He is the recipient of the Silver Star, Bronze Star, Defense Meritorious Service Medal, Meritorious Service Medal (3 awards), Air Medal, Joint Service Commendation Medal, Army Commendation Medal; Army Achievement Medal{ Meritorious unit Award, Air Force Outstanding unit Award, Army Good Conduct Medal (2 Awards), National Defense Service Medal (2 awards), Vietnam Service Medal (5 Campaigns), Army Service Ribbon, Overseas Service Ribbon (5), the Army Staff Identification Badge, Parachute Badge, Combat Infantry Badge, and Republic of Vietnam awards to include the Cross or Gallantry with Silver Star.

He now runs the “Patriots for America’ website and is the leader of ‘Operation American Spring’, a constitutional effort to rally patriots around the country to Washington D.C. in a massive show of American people power to shut down the capital with civil disobediance.  Think Cairo 2011 or maybe even Kiev 2013.  They will go to the capital to stay until their demands are met…

Mort: How did you come up with this idea of an ‘Operation American Spring’?

Col. Riley: I, and believe “we the people” have been agonizing for more than five years, watching the deterioration of America at the hands of unscrupulous politicians, and seeking corrective action. With pen in hand, while writing down a rant, a portion of the many grievances against the leadership in America, my mind turned to our Founding Fathers and the Egyptian Spring…….

I realized we face much the same abuse that our Founding Fathers were experiencing. A Crown exerting a heel of pain on our early citizens, much like Barack Obama and other betrayers are imposing on America today. The list of grievances is long as it was in the 1700’s, but suffice to say, the current leadership in the United States Executive Branch, Congress and Courts have abandoned the US Constitution, disregard their oath, have taken on the reflection of dictator, tyrants, incompetents or all of these characteristics. They attempt to govern outside lawful means, picking and choosing which laws to obey and which to ignore, writing new laws and regulations at the Executive department whim with absolutely no oversight by Congress or the Courts…in short the United States is in a lawless, floundering, chaotic, condition. Who suffers the greatest? “We the people” just as our early citizens experienced.

For more than five years, “we the people” have been writing, calling, faxing Congress, the media, screaming in Town Halls,marching, rallying, demonstrating, petitioning, all to no avail. Every branch of government looks at “we the people” whom they have taken an oath to serve, as “pests”, interfering with their political agenda, cramping their self-serving, greedy agendas. We have no faith in the ballot box any longer, as many believe this sacred secret box has been compromised.

My thought, how in God’s name can we do something about this…..we’ve attempted nearly every avenue available in a peaceful fashion, without violence? None of us want violence, especially those of us that have been at battle from the fox-hole. The “principle” of the Egyptian Spring surfaced…people massing, gigantic magnitudes of “we the people”. It worked in Egypt by bringing down the government twice. Mass works in military operations, it can work in America. Thus the idea of a massive, gigantic swell of “we the people” in a non-violent, unarmed, peaceful descending on Washington, D.C. We’re modeling the principle of people massing, not modeling Egyptian government nor military. Not to bring down the government, our government structure works fine, it’s the criminal, betraying, deceiving occupants of federal government that must be removed to save our nation.

Mort: Your hoping 10 million people will show up for OAS, isn’t that kind of high?

Col. Riley: In less than 30 days of the call for the massive “movement to action” in Washington, D.C., nearly every State in America, every political persuasion, rich, poor, every color, all ages, men, women,  liberal, conservative, independent, unemployed, et al are now mobilizing to participate in this peaceful, non-violent, cause in the search for constitutional restoration for America. We have well over 1 million militia members mobilizing; bikers, truckers, hunters, Tea Party groups….citizens across America. No, I don’t think 10 million is high at all…the energy, determination, and willingness to have the “back” of the United States Constitution has finally resonated with the call, “enough is enough”…..we’ll have no more of it!

Mort: OAS will be using civil disobedience in the hopes of shutting down D.C., why hasn’t anyone else thought of this?

Col. Riley: There is a time for all things under heaven………God willing, now is the time for this massive, gigantic effort as a last stand before America moves into a more devastating condition. Americans are long suffering and patient, but God has made a way for freedom and liberty loving Americans to answer the call in defense of our nation.

Why it hasn’t happened before, may be that Americans of every persuasion have only now awakened to the very real threats to our freedom and liberty…  Barack Obama is a fraud. Never before have we faced any enemy that has  resembled a slow growing, but deadly cancer creeping throughout America represented by betrayers, deceivers, political operatives, that have no allegiance to the United States.

Mort: The ‘Truckers Ride for the Constitution’ was a total failure, what is different about Operation American Spring?

Col. Riley: We learn from every event……I don’t agree the the Truckers effort was a total failure. They have paved the way, we will expand on it…the difference is that Operation American Spring will not be just a ride through Washington, D.C., we will be there in massive numbers and intend to remain there until acceptable solutions are gained.

Mort: Let’s say OAS is successful in shutting down D.C., what happensthen?

Col. Riley: A shut down will impact government, it will impact commerce, it will make people mad, some will welcome it, some won’t. Freedom isn’t free, it costs, a price that has been paid by millions of lives, body parts, blood, family destruction. This sacrifice demands that  leadership in government serve “we the people” not vice versa. It is unclear how this will all unravel but we are calling for the removal of Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Nancy Pelosi, and Eric Holder as a start toward constitutional restoration. They have all abandoned the US Constitution, are unworthy to be retained in a position that calls for servant status…they have demonstrated lawlessness, utter disregard for “we the people” cowardice, and incompetence.

Mort: OAS (Operation American Spring) is very popular here on Beforeitsnews.com, What would you say to your supporters on here to help spread the word?

Col. Riley: We would suggest visiting our hub site www.patriotsforamerica.ning.com [1] and soon to be operational http://operationamericanspring.org/ [2] for official information. Post OAS info on Face Book, Twitter, join State Groups on our web sites, plan, organize, write newspapers, call to talk shows, post flyers, email friends, conduct rallies/demonstrations in local areas in the months leading up to May 16, 2014 when Operation American Spring begins. Massive numbers is the key……..anything short of a massive, gigantic response will give the destroyers of America a signal we have surrendered. Not me, not ever.

Thank you Colonel for your time and your energy.  Best of luck to you sir in your efforts to make this a great country again.  -Mort Amsel

  • I may not be there in my person but I shall spend this day in prayer for my part in the restoration of our beloved Republic, its the very least I can do. As a disabled Veteran I am very limited (spinal injured and 90% rating as a disabled Combat Veteran) in my choices to get around, a trip (its almost 2,000 miles away from my position) of this nature would just wreak my body down even further, so this is the best I can do, so won’t you please join me and my fellow citizens/Patriots, Sons of Liberty, Oath Keepers, et al, in prayer on this day if you are not going to be able to attend in person, its the very least we can do on our own to help the cause of ending these corrupt politicians and restore this Republic back to its original Constitution as a Representative Republic under the rule of law, not these corrupted men. Its “We The People” not those of special and evil intentions/interested only in their power over the free men/ladies.
    God Bless each and every one of you for your honor, sacrifices and contribution to this occasion/cause.

    • Thank you for your service. Prayer is a BIG part of Operation American Spring. We all have our part to play and you found yours. GOD BLESS US ALL.

    • This is an ongoing movement. If you can’t be there on opening day, you can plan to be there in a week from today. You can be there to relieve our fellow patriots who themselves have lives too, jobs they must attend to, families, etc. . This movement needs waves of members willing to tap another patriot on the shoulder and say, go home, get some rest, I will stand your post, it’s my watch now. Then another wave, and another, and another.

  • I thought the Arab Spring and Egyptian Revolution was a CIA sponsored Obama-operation.

    So what’s this video praising the revolution?

    Is this working for Obama as a psyops?

    • YOUR QUESTION IS A GOOD ONE. THE EGYPTIAN SPRING is just a model (blue print if you will) for what OPERATION AMERICAN SPRING will accomplish. Nothing else. The United States Constitution will be returned to respect and then followed after the removal of several people.

    • You may be right to be concerned. I believe a Gen Paul Vallely is also involved in this (he was behind a similar effort on Veteran’s Day in 2011 that fizzled into nothingness) and his involvement gives me cause for concern as he along with Michael Aquino (yes he and Michael Aquino!) authored a small book entitled “From PSYOP to MindWar: The Psychology of Victory.”

      You can find this here: http://www.markdice.com/documents/MindWar_co_authored_by_Michael%20Aquino.pdf.

      I will let people draw their own conclusions and yes I agree something has to be done but do we want to be involved with high officers of the Pentagram who say “…Not to bring down the government, our government structure works fine…” This entity that we all see posing as the government of the Republic has nothing to do with the Republic and maybe he realizes that but he should clarify that at least.

    • Actually obama an the c.i.a are responsible for ushering in king morsi an the muslim brotherhood in 2011,The Egyptian spring upheaved this regime,An have closed off all tunnels that hamas uses to supply their terrorist tactic’s,An have assured Isreal that they will destroy the islamic brotherhood no matter where they are, Including obama an the islamic brotherhood that’s in the Whitehouse.

  • 1.)SOME ARE CONCERNED THAT SO MANY PATRIOTS IN ONE LOCATION COULD CREATE AN EASY TARGET FOR A MASS MURDER BY THE PS.T.B.
    2.)HOW WILL YOU ENSURE THAT YOU ALSO ARREST THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD WHO HAVE INFILTRATED THE SEAT OF D.C.GOVERNMENT?
    3.)HOW WILL THE ARRESTS BE HANDLED?

    I SEE IT AS NECESSARY, BUT, WOULD LIKE THESE QUESTIONS ADDRESSED.
    :idea:

    • Hello Laynaland,
      Have you ever heard of Media Blitz..?
      I am going to share a truth with you and allow you to seek it for yourself. Most of what you shared is Media Blitz, and holds no truth, I am sorry my young friend, but all to many things have been posted to the point people just do not know, what is truth.
      ,” Barack Obama, America as a President who is Muslim by Heritage, all it is stated President Obama has uses the IRS to target and harass conservative, Tea Party, pro-life and pro-Israel groups, who has used the NSA to spy on all Americans.”
      First off, seeing how I deleted 19 Tea Party Memberships, because I found a lie within their Media Blitz…..
      Now for this…
      #1- The IRS targeted Tea Party Owners,because of all the money they got in donations, to help stop Gun Control and the Agenda 21 and so on, the IRS also Target Republican and Democrat Party sites that collected donations, to stop this, Out of Control Government, and now they drive fine cars with donated money……Fact.

      #2. NSA Spying, the only reason this came to light, the NSA collected Data on Democrats and Republicans of Office. Fancy that,. As well as Data collected on important Leaders of the World.
      If you dont want the NSA Spying on you, dont keep information on the net.

      #3.Now according to Fox News and CNN, President Obama is a bit ticked off over the Media Blitz, because only in part of the issues that are shared, and the so said reports created a false truth, by leaving out part the information as a collective of one within a report card.

      Like Agenda 21, did any one report that Agenda 21- feel apart against the United Nations….nope didnt think so.

      What about this issue with China and other countries making plans to not use the American Dollar as currency ….did you know this turned out to be a Media Blitz, to get your money through donations, and buy their books by creating fear….a matter a fact, a lot of the Tea Party, Republican and Democrat Party sites resorted to this means of support through fear of the economy failure.
      Now how do I know this is not true, This Government could and would place a embargo against China’s junk coming into this country, or a matter a fact any united force of countries hell bent on destroying the American Economy….by neutering them so that their economy can not re-produce.

      So my young friend, before you re-share Media Blitz, open your mind to the possibility it was created only in part of the whole story.

    • States would erupt. Not a smart plan.

  • While I totally support this effort. I am afraid we have crossed the line for peaceful resolution as a means for remedy. The level of Lawlessness has totally engulfed our Government. This Regime is dangerous and prepared to commit unspeakable acts of Barbarism to hold on to power. I am also afraid that anything short of the use of force will not stop them. As it was with all of the other peaceful demonstrations that have been held Nation wide. This Hive of Criminals will set in their Chambers and laugh out loud at any size group who does not attempt to arrest them and drag them on to the Mall for swift Justice. We are well past hiding behind the illusion that this Regime can be brought down without a fight. They did not purchase 200 billion rounds of Hollow Point Ammunition to play Tiddly Winks with the American People. Think hard about it Folks. Then be prepared to grab your Weapons and take the fight to the Enemy. We know where they are. And we know WHO they are.

  • Thanks, Mort. Great interview. An idea whose time has come.

  • I thought the Arab Spring and Egyptian Revolution was a CIA sponsored Obama-operation. …………….

    Answer, Yes, (The FIRST one was) , in Order to Unleash the Muslim Hoardes in order to consolidate Islam into a coming Caliphate ( Leader / Ruler ) , ie the Muslim Messiah a.k.a. Anti Christ.
    The 2nd one was that you see in the video was the Freedom loving Egyptian Populace coming together to oust the MUSLIM PUPPET that had been installed when the Muslim Brotherhood [ SEIZED ***** ] POWER in Egypt through coercition (force and intimadation )

    So what’s this video praising the revolution?…………….

    Answer, To Rally the FREEDOM- LOVING American Patriots to oust/ remove / Arrest the traitorous people that have illegaly taken/ [ SEIZED***** ] power in AMERICA in a Marxist communist coup.

    Is this working for Obama as a psyops?
    ……………..

    Answer, MOST DEFINITITELY NOT!!! Quite to the contrary in Fact, This is an American Patriot that is following what the Forefathers of the great and set forth in our beloved constitution to do when an EVENT of this magnitude has happened That is OUR ABSOLUTE RIGHT AND DUTY / OBLIGATION!!,,. To Root out traitors and Usurpers when the country is in Dire Straits / Peril of being Hijacked by a Foreign Government / Enemy / or Hostile organized force to guarantee the SURVIVAL of our COUNTRY and Beleif Set Forth in said constitution that we hold Dearly to our HEARTS SOULS and MINDS And our VERY BEING!!!!!!!

  • What if all these Generals, & high ranking officials that were purged from the military, were Zionist traitors to the US? If you look at each person purged in the military, in Wikipedia, they all have some relation to Israel, or christian zionism views. Ben Fulford says the Zionist in the US Military are being purged. What if the American people are being tricked into supporting these Zionist traitors? Please look up each indivisual in Wikipedia and judge for youself.

    • I would trust an Israelite more than I would ever trust a Muslim.

  • I have this memory of a big bunch of veterans descending on Washington sometime after WW1 demanding they be heard, and that they were met by gunfire. Many heroes were killed that day, even from the Civil War. I think that this will show us just how well Barry has purged the military – whether they will fire on their own.

    • Is Obama the one doing the purging or is it the White Hat insiders that Benjamin Fulford talks about doing it?

  • You have many grievances but do you have any solutions? If you want any court, even the court of public opinion, to help; you have to get them to want to help you, and you have to explain how they can help. O.k. you want to tear down the government, what are you going to replace it with and how long will it take your friends and you to decide and install that government?

    You are saying Barack Obama and other figure heads are the source of the problems, but they were not in power when the nation began to lose its way. Have you considered the advisers who behind closed doors whisper in their ears? Aren’t many of these advisers the grandchildren of financial empires, children with a sense that their family has special entitlement, people more likely to promote schemes designed to benefit their fiscal interests irrespective of negative impacts on the nation.

  • Is Obama purged the military or is the White Hats or whatever Ben Fulford calls them doing the purging?

  • Marching on Washington DC is at best Idiocy, and a Fruitless endeavor!! If Marches and Protests were going to do any good, the Past Marches would have done some Good, But they Didn’t!! In order for Protests to be effective, the Government Officials would have to care what you think, and they Don’t!! And Ten Million People will have no more effect in Washington DC than 1 Million will have.
    Marching on Washington will do no more than give the Feds a Photo Op to get Pictures of the Head Instigators. And give the News Medias the opportunity to seek out the “Loose Screws” among the Patriots that come, and ask them Stupid Questions. Which in turn they will answer, because they aren’t that smart. As to make Our patriot Movements look even more Infantile or Unhinged than they already Portray us!!
    The incessant fixation on Barack Obama, and getting him Impeached has blinded people to the Fact that he isn’t the real Problem. The American People, and their Failure to steer Government in the Way it should go is Our Failure!! We can make Barack Obama and the Federal Government Impotent by simply starting at Our State Government Level, and Straightening Them Out!!
    Until people understand the Arms of Our Government, and understand what their Restricted Powers are, and then utilizing that understanding to our Benefit, we will never Change anything!!
    People needs to ask themselves the Question, “How many of these people attended this Washington DC March live in Blue States”?? Because that’s where you need to Start Protesting against Government!! Because until you Turn them Over at the State level, you will Never turn over the Government at the Federal Level!!

  • I believe the forces arrayed against patriots will stop at nothing to retain control. I would suggest all state militias be standing by, locked and loaded when people go to DC. If the worst happens, the militias should revolt by force of arms and overthrow each and every local, county, state government all at once. This will make it impossible to counter by Obama as they simply do not have enough people. Total police, DHS, military are less than 3 million people….
    The militias should publicly announce that they will be locked and loaded and will arrest any and all officials and throw them in their jails if they attempt to interfere. If an armed revolt becomes necessary, all states should immediately secede under a copy of the US constitution individually. This will prevent another Obama as any would be dictator has to get 50 individual governments to approve any action. Cut obamas tax input and his minions and he is finished.
    Down with Obama and the traitorous officials…..!

    • I am in this Camp of thought. TPTB have no idea how many of us there are out here that are skilled Marksmen. Most of the Hunters I know can easily shoot a Squirrels eye out at 150 yards. In every Sate there are at least 500 thousand to 1 million Hunters that are very well armed and possess survival skills that most Military’s would envy. Not to mention that if it became necessary to engage Government Forces . A Peoples Army would be made up of many Veterans who could easily commandeer Military Vehicles and armaments then turn them on those Forces. The sheer numbers of Americans that would fight to the death would be un stoppable . Once this Regime draws first blood . The American People will go into a rage mode and quickly unite in huge numbers. I am confident that the upper Military think tanks know that this scenario will play out. If this Protest does draw fire from the Regime . It will be a fatal mistake on their part.

    • Anonymous, I don’t believe we will know when first blood is drawn, as there will likely be a news blackout by the MSM to protect the reputation of Dear Leader, and alternative media will likely find themselves shut down and jailed.

  • As I am a Brit, not an American Citizen, as an observer and a witness to our own successive governments subverting the British Constitution and our Common Law, I would ask, “Is doing nothing, a viable option?”
    “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” ( Edmund Burke).
    However, getting massacred en masse achieves nothing either, and that is the great, and realistic danger if millions of people descend upon Washington.
    I would suggest that American Spring would be best served by informing the American people of their Common Law freedoms and Rights. Of how they cannot be stopped by the police at random, or fined before conviction in a court of law. Of their right to refuse to accept the authority of anyone unlawfully enforcing anything but Common Law, which is the Law of the Land, yours and mine. Magna carta, the Bill of Rights ban prosecutions for fabricated, no- victim crimes.
    Then kick the Banks where it hurts, between the vaults, suspend all loan repayments, until they provided proof of the loan, by providing a copy of the actual accounting proof of transfers of ‘loaned cash’ from its own current account to the alleged recipient. (they can’t the money was created digitally at no cost to the banks) Demand to see the contract signed by both parties (it doesn’t exist) Demand to see the borrowers original Promissory Note, (they dare not for it will show it was used without the borrower’s consent as security for ten identical loans, and has also been sold to a securitization company – the bank has unlawfully sold on the debt.)
    Free your people from debt and legislation, and you will topple the government, lawfully.

  • Go armed and hang the traitor or you will be wasting your time. The traitors will ignored all who show up. When the law violates it’s oath and backs up traitors in government who violate there oath something is very wrong in America. The people in law and government in America have no shame or honor. I would dare say there are people in our prisons that have more honor then the people in law and government here in the U.S. do. Just think they use to hang horse thieves and today they won’t ever hang a traitor. Pretty sad.

  • As an American living in Oz, also disabled Vet, I cannot attend.

    Obviously the plans in their entirety cannot be published. I.wish I could know how many law enforcement, national guard, active military and businesses are on our side. Has leadership reached out to patriotic blacks and Hispanics? Are there politicians lined up?

    We have to move fast. We are about 15 years behind. Do we have countermeasures in place, communications, logistics? A million people aren’t going to stand in line at macdonalds. Foreign governments? Is China on our side, or the side of those who sell them worthless bonds?

    This plan needs the planning of a 1944 d day.

    Are we up to it?

  • RockyLanding

    This should be amusing.

  • I am very scared. While I think this is a very bad government, I fear for the end results. I lived through the 60s, watching people riot on TV. I saw the government come out in en mass and used force on the rioters. I feel this government will fight to the end because they are power drunk. If you are going to challenge them then the whole United States will change. I fear for marshal law. The government will have the army, something never done before, come and try to restore order. I fear anyone who is upset for any reason is going to turn on their neighbor and start fights, killings, riots, stealing, and any bad act you can think of. America is about to be spit in half. All the problems we resolved in the 60s and 70s are being started up again. Why? We resolved everyone is equal and men and women are equal. So why restart it up again. The original fight is going to be lost. No one will know what they are fighting for. Remember MLK.

  • Dustdevil

    Comfort does NOT come in the form of a former-NSA director leading an American counterforce against the government. This REEKS of False Flag, with him leading the sheep to slaughter. I guess only time will tell.
