During an appearance last month on a birther radio program, Operation American Spring organizer Harry Riley predicted that his protest campaign to force President Obama out of office will work because “it’s bathed in prayer” and “under God.” After wildly overstating the number of gun owners in the U.S., Riley said that if government officials “don’t do what we’re suggesting or what we’re demanding,” then Americans could see “a violent condition erupt in our nation.” It’s an honorable movement, it’s bathed...

Last week, retired Col. Harry Riley was a guest on Patriot Nation with Mark Hoffman to talk about his upcoming rally, Operation American Spring. On May 16th, Riley and his supporters will head to Washington D.C. with hopes to oust President Obama. Col. Riley, who claims he is modeling his movement on the Arab Spring, is confident that between 10 to 20 million people will join him in camping out in front of the White House until President Obama resigns. Calling it a “movement to action,” Col. Riley told Hoffman that he is “expecting something to happen. We will... MORE >

Yesterday, Operation American Spring organizer Harry Riley appeared on Alan Colmes' radio show, where he explained his plan to bring 10-20 million people into the nation's capital for a rally to overthrow Obama with the help of militias. While Riley seems to have downgraded his turnout estimate, which organizers previously put at 30 million people, he told Colmes that the demonstration will be so "massive" that it will stretch into Maryland and Virginia and will block traffic and commerce. "[W]e will interrupt the traffic, we will interrupt the commerce," Riley... MORE >

An organizer for Operation American Spring, a planned right-wing rally in Washington D.C. that hopes to drive President Obama out of office through a “second American Revolution,” said this week that “militias all across the nation are mobilizing” to attend the May demonstration. In an interview with conservative pundit Erik Rush this week, organizer Harry Riley said that while the militias are “not coming up there with any weapons,” he believes there may be violence and “carnage” if the demonstrators don’t get their way. “I fear the...

The organizer of a May 16 rally calling for President Obama’s overthrow claims that he has the support of “a number of high ranking military leaders” who will assist in “a gigantic ‘movement to action’ in D.C.” Col. Harry Riley, who is putting on the event with the backing of Jim Garrow and former general Paul Vallely, wouldn’t be the first conservative activist to call for military action against Obama. Riley told Renew America’s Sher Zieve that he hopes for an Egyptian-style uprising to bring an end to “the tyrannical, dictator... MORE >

Conservative activists including Jim Garrow, Erik Rush and Paul Vallely are pushing a rally called Operation American Spring demanding the overthrow of President Obama. Of course, in November, Larry Klayman held a similar rally calling for Obama’s ousting that he hoped would draw millions of people, but only drew about one hundred Tea Party activists. The organizer, Harry Riley, predicts that “millions of Americans will participate” but warns that “patriots may be killed, wounded, incarcerated” and harassed by the government. After successfully overthrowing Obama... MORE >
