Nuclear Event Off South Carolina Coast?
Background: In November of 2013 rumors were spreading from sources, namely Dr. James Garrow, that three nuclear weapons had been taken from Dyess Air Force Base near Abilene, Texas, without proper security signatures, and by major breach of protocol and safety regulations. The narrative was that the Obama administration arranged for the misappropriation of these nukes for nefarious purposes, involving use against the American people, with the suspected target being the people of South Carolina, and the intent being a horrific false flag event to justify further totalitarian controls of this country.
As related by Garrow in a Facebook post on November 18 2013, somehow these nukes changed hands, and at least 2 Army Generals and 1 Navy Admiral, whose duties included the safeguarding and oversight of the nuclear arsenal, are to be congratulated for saving America from horrific outcome. The Admiral reportedly was responsible for directing the Navy nuclear weapon to be taken some 350 miles off the coast of South Carolina, and detonated deep in the Atlantic Ocean, beyond the continental shelf, in the evening of Monday October 7th, 2013.
In the week following the alleged October 7th detonation, 3 high ranking officers in charge of the nation’s nuclear arsenal were sacked, including Major General Michael Carey and Vice Admiral Tim Giardina. The causes for their discharge were reported to result from misbehavior involving alcohol and gambling.
Upon hearing this story in November, I found what I believed to be the seismic charts from the event, and after review, came to the conclusion that these did not resemble the signature from such an explosive detonation. Apparently I was not viewing the correct data.
Today I began more detailed research with this issue, intending to corroborate information offered in my appearance on Mark Connors’ “Free America” stream-cast program last night, Sunday June 1st, 2014, in which I indicated that the event off South Carolina’s coast did not appear to be nuclear in origin. Unfortunately that is not what I’ve done. Instead, to my distress, I have corroborated reports that it was very possibly, perhaps even likely, a nuclear detonation.
Below is a graphic differentiation of two North Korea nuclear tests compared to an earthquake seismogram:

test (top, in red); October 2006 test (middle); and natural
earthquake from same region. Lamont-Doherty Earth
Observatory, Columbia University
The Nuclear explosions demonstrate a prominent initial P-wave (primary wave) SPIKE, with the signature abruptly decreasing amplitude and only minor s-wave (shear/secondary wave) in evidence. Of note, is the strong amplitude difference between the initial P-wave spike and the lesser subsequent signature.
South Carolina Event of Concern:
Here is the recorded data from the seismic event off the coast of South Carolina which occurred on October 7, 2013:
4.5 Mag Quake
2013-10-08 01:58:11 GMT/UTC Time (October 7, 2013 20:58:11 ET )
Depth (Hypocenter) : 10 km
Epicenter Coordinates: 30.180°N 74.158°W
Here is a post on a forum that cites an article, stating in its first sentence, “ The “earthquake” off the East Coast wasn’t an earthquake. There were no “P” waves.” This article is misleading because a nuclear explosion, or any sort of explosion is notable for having a predominant P-wave spike, not the absence of P-waves, with the relative absence of secondary s-waves.
South Carolina Seismic Network – SEIS:
As is evident from the signatures at the four different seismic stations, above, the event off the coast of South Carolina on October 7th bears strong resemblance to a nuclear signature.
The Russian submarine Kursk was sunk in August of 2000 while participating in war games in the Barents Sea. Kursk was a large sub at 18,300 tons submerged displacement; length: 505 feet; diameter 60 feet. Compliment: 107-118 men. Max speed 28 kts submerged.
There were two discrete explosions separated by about 2 minutes 15 seconds. As is evident below, this Kursk explosive seismic event (but non-nuclear) shows the same predominant P-wave spike. If the October 8th Event off the South Carolina coast was not a nuclear event, then it was likely a very large explosive.

Seismogram Analysis (Tutorial): http://www.learninggeoscience.net/free/00092/SeismogramAnalysis-MX.swf
Glenn Beck’s “TheBlaze” has a new story reporting on OAS turnout, but it’s not much meat and a lot of bread.
Beck’s reporter allows the impression that the expected turnout was to be 30 million, 3 times the actual idealized desire. This was almost as much of a dishonest hit-piece as Beck trying to railroad Cliven Bundy as a Sovereign Citizen, when Bundy really had no idea what Beck was talking about, and had said nothing remotely similar to the sovereign citizen ideology. However when Beck himself manages to spend week after week on Founder’s Fridays, and yet cannot manage to teach the Constitution in any sort of real, applied manner, instead implying it was some sort of idealized mystical scroll imbued with magic, then this is not all that surprising.
The reality is that OAS was infiltrated and co-opted by Government people who were pushing for a massive turnout, and instigating an angry and scared citizenry to be armed, because this was to be the false flag incident that was intended to scapegoat conservative constitutionalists, the religious, and ex-military, just as indicated in the infamous 2009 DHS document, to plunge this country into martial law and cast down the last vestiges of that mystical Constitution. Aware Americans should be relieved that more people were alert to what was going on, and didn’t actually show, rather than maligning the movement overall.
I guess God just didn’t send Harry Riley’s Geese flying in Beck’s proper divine formation. Instead the heavenly host was reduced to a maritime flotilla.
But Beck can be proud he attracted such large numbers with a feel-good stage show, and that he hired reporters who can count, and recognize the weather while standing in it. (double entendre)
America can now sleep soundly indeed, and if it should die before it wakes…
(For those not paying attention, Beck is now hemorrhaging listeners due to repeatedly showing himself to be a less-than-honest hypocrite.)
Recent research about Commonwealth Patriot (Roberto Tonizzo), the O.A.S. lead for Virginia and D.C., has demonstrated that Tonizzo is not as he represents himself, a “construction contractor”, and very possibly a lobbyist inside DC, with Roberto Tonizzo being involved in a series of companies that are contrary to his claim of hectic employment in construction.
First there was discovery of his seafood company, in Virginia, dealing in Stone Crab,Blue Crab,Alaskan King,Dungeness Crab,Opelia Crab. Note the company name, H&K Seafood.
Second, Tonizzo was discovered to be the primary officer of a company in Las Vegas Nevada, H&K Consulting, LLC. Note the name consistency with the seafood company. Note also that Roberto Tonizzo is the company contact, but he is in Moneta, Virginia.
This is a list of shared businesses that share his address at 2215-B Renaissance Dr, Las Vegas, showing a wide variety of interests in some 250 companies, and likely indicative of a front for lobbying interests.
Holdrege & Kull (Handk.net)
Third this H&K Consulting, and the consistent H&K name, may be tied to a an engineering company in Las Vegas by the name of Holdrege & Kull, with the website address of HandK.net (note the naming consistency). Among Holdrege & Kull’s areas of engineering expertise is…. solar farm construction… just like what Harry Reid wants to install near the Bundy Ranch. Below is one of the images from H and K’s webpage banners.
Roberto Tonizzo is evidently a lobbyist acting under the interests of Harry Reid, and misrepresenting himself as a patriot, and conservative, while pushing OAS forward at any cost, even going to extremes to viciously defame OAS members who have questioned the movement’s objectives. accusing them of theft, abandoning 100’s of crippled veterans, and even being a white supremacist, all without any proof. One has to wonder why Tonizzo would so rabidly attach anyone only examining OAS’s method and philosophy. and go to such extremes. Riley has refused to remove Tonizzo’s attacks to these persons across OAS’s forum sites, as well as social media sites, giving Tonizzo carte blanche despite how such conduct is obviously harmful to OAS’s perception and reputation. This is inconsistent for a man who represents himself as a devout Christian and “bathed in prayer”, as Col. Harry Riley does.
Tonizzo has been questioned about his involvements in Nevada, and he deflected the question providing no explanation whatsoever.
Tonizzo has been traveling around promoting OAS with Alex Coffey to gun shows, CPAC, and Virginia OAS meetings. Alex Coffey represents himself as defense contractor living in Colorado and commuting weekly by plane to DC. Coffey maintains that he has official permission for his actions with OAS, and therefore his involvement with OAS will not impact his security clearance; he’s “sanctioned” for that involvement. But what exactly is that involvement that he got permission for? Alex Coffey’s father is Alan Coffey, who is OAS’s “prayer warrior team leader”. This is what Alan Coffey’s bio on PFA says about him:
“I retired in l988 from the US Army from the Military Intelligence Corp, served in Vietnam with the 4th Infantry, later Augsburg, Germany and Heidelberg, “
I believe Riley served in Germany as well, and both military Intel! And Alex, the son, is a military defense contractor, and yet has all this time to travel around with Roberto, promoting OAS. Tonizzo has claimed he just sorta “hooked up with Alex” despite Tonizzo being more than laid back about any religious affiliation he might have. .
OAS LIVE COVERAGE
For a variety of sources of live coverage of Operation American Spring, go to the Live Coverage page of this blog.
(This post contains material from a blog post by Bobby Powell (The Truth Is Viral)
TTiV host Bobby Powell and Operation American Spring spokesman Joe Bennett, the Pennsylvania state coordinator for OAS, discuss what organizers hope to accomplish when they descend on Washington D.C. on May 16th.
In the second half of the show Bobby brings on Rich Buckner, the former Washington D.C. coordinator for OAS. Buckner echoes concerns expressed by himself, and eight other state coordinators who have quit OAS in recent days because ‘it isn’t what it appears to be.’
These state coordinators represent almost 20% of OAS’s management-level volunteer force, and their resignations have thrown up some serious red flags. Richard Hall, a close personal friend of Col. Harry Riley and the man in charge of the entire volunteer effort, resigned after discovering that the FBI had placed moles inside the OAS leadership.
The Truth Is Viral had originally taken a stand against Operation American Spring back in January when an investigation aided by Patriot broadcasters Kathy Rubio and Zeeda Andrews revealed that Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely – an uber-neocon and Tea Party darling – had once coauthored a paper for the Army on how to use mind control techniques to influence crowds ranging in size from unruly street mobs to the populations of entire countries with Col. Michael Aquino.
Aquino is the founder of the Satanic Temple of Set, and even though Vallely has never been accused of being a Satanist himself (not even by this program,) his working relationship with Aquino – and the nature of that relationship (figuring out how to use mind-control on crowds just like the one expected in D.C. on the 16th) – I felt uncomfortable promoting the event.
The next week TTiV reversed that stance after Col. Riley appeared on the Pete Santilli show and stated that Maj. Gen. Vallely had no official role to play in the leadership of OAS. This was backed up by an email from Col. Riley’s publicity agent who stated the same thing.
Taking Col. Riley at his word that Vallely would have no part in the protest, and understanding that something must be done if the People are to regain control of their government, TTiV continued to positively promote Operation American Spring. But over the past week, information has been released indicating that Vallely will indeed be playing a role in the demonstration. This is extremely disturbing information.
Several weeks ago I published an episode of The Truth Is Viral that documented the fact that from time to time I am being followed by unknown individuals in black humvees. A former high-ranking administrator within the OAS command structure informed me this week that the tail was courtesy of Maj. Gen Vallely, who had asked his personal intel chief to investigate me.
Apparently the General does not like to have the truth told about his connections with devil worshipers or his trips to Syria where he was very vocally supporting the same al-Qaeda terrorists in the Free Syrian Army that John McCain is so fond of swapping spit with, the very same terrorists – Abdul Hakin al-Hasidi and Abdel Hakim bel-Hadj – that were responsible for the US-backed insurgents who murdered Libyan dictator Moammar Gadaffi.
Guess who doesn’t care what the general doesn’t like?
Buckner, the Publisher of Veteransunited.org, went on to speak at length about all of the little red flags that have gone up during his short tenure as the Washington D.C. coordinator for OAS; red flags that include OAS organizers planning to put as many militia as possible into the Bull Run Regional Park Campground instead of spreading them out. Remember when the Army Air Corp bunched all of their planes together to keep them safe from sabotage on Dec. 6th 1941? That worked out great didn’t it?
Gramma always said, “Don’t put all of your eggs into one basket.” Ssgt. Willie always said, “SPREAD OUT! One mortar round would take out all of you assholes!” It is against sound military doctrine to concentrate your troops in one spot on the eve of a battle, and a seasoned military commander like Col. Harry Riley would know this.
Eight state coordinators from Missouri, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, W. Virginia, and two from Nevada have quit OAS in recent days, all stating concerns about the safety of Patriots who plan to attend. One major concern shared by all of those former volunteers is that the federal government might send agent provocateurs into Washington D.C. to turn the event into a “bloodbath.” Seeing as how federal agents have already been caught infiltrating the movement, and taking into account incidents like Ruby Ridge and Waco where the government showed little concern – and no mercy – for any who oppose them, this appears to be a legitimate concern.
While some might see the use of the word ‘bloodbath’ as a bit extreme, that is exactly what some of these former volunteers fear will happen if an agent provocateur brings a weapon into D.C. and fires at federal agents. Even if a shot is fired into the air, it could very easily provoke a lethal response; a response which would be answered in kind by a ‘second wave’ of armed militia stationed in Virginia and Maryland ‘until we need them.’
Officially, OAS is supposed to be completely a completely peaceful and unarmed event designed to get Congress off of their corrupt and/or just plain lazy butts and impeach Barack Hussein Obama. Unofficially, armed militia are being told to stand by just outside the District of Columbia.
Emboldened by their stunning victory at the Bundy ranch where armed militia forced federal agents to turn tail and run, militia members may be hoping for a repeat. Not wanting to rain on anyone’s parade, but Barack Obama and Eric Holder are not going to let anyone walk into “their house” and slap them around as was done in the deserts of Nevada. Their egos will not allow it.
They also aren’t just going to leave office just because a bunch of angry Americans show up at the front gate of the White House to demand their impeachment and imprisonment. The Communist plan to put Bathhouse Barry into office has been in the works since the 60’s since Obama was nothing more than a red diaper baby. They aren’t just going to give up and walk away.
Patriots who supported the Bundys were immediately attacked by the Left, the charge led by Nevada Senator Harry Reid, a man who holds the distinction of being the most corrupt member of the Senate, and they were labeled “racists” and “domestic terrorists.” Imagine the response from the feds if Obama felt as though his tenure as POTUS were in serious jeopardy.
According to the new rules laid down in the NDAA and the AUMF, the United States is now a battlefield where American citizens no longer enjoy the protections provided by the 5th Amendment if Barack Obama or one of his goons say they don’t apply. Barack Obama, Eric Holder, and CIA chief John Brennan have all refused to rule out the use of drones domestically.
This is particularly disturbing because Obama already has 3 “kills” of natural-born American citizens to his credit, earning him the title “Judge, jury, and executioner” from the normally ultra-liberal ACLU. None of those citizens were even so much as charged with a crime in a court of law, not even a military tribunal, before Obama ordered their deaths with his pen and phone.
The deaths of Anwar al-Alawki, Samir Khan, and al-Alawki’s 16-year-old son Abdulrahman were – in the opinion of this writer – a test case designed to gauge the reaction of the American people to the extra-judicial murders of three of their fellow citizens. After all, who’s going to miss a couple of scumbag hadjis right?
Well now that Obama has successfully murdered three people and gotten away with it, how much would you like to bet that the next time an American citizen is killed in a drone attack, that individual won’t be as epic and obvious a scumbag as was the elder al-Alawki. How much would you like to bet that the next target in Obama’s drone campaign will be a Patriot? Most of us are, after all, considered to be “domestic terrorists” for one reason or another; at least according to morons like Harry Reid (and the DHS.)
Sheriff Richard Mack’s Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association has also withdrawn its support from OAS. CSPOA spokesman Sam Bushman said that the leadership at OAS “had no plan” past the initial day of protest. OAS spokesman Joe Bennett said that Articles of Impeachment and a 33 count list of grievances had been hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress, but none of the legislators that the OAS literature calls upon to help the People peacefully transition to a new government have responded to that call; none that he could name anyway.
So. What to do…
Although it was an excellent idea and many fine Patriots have been working tirelessly to pull it off, Operation American Spring has been thoroughly compromised. FBI moles have been discovered in the OAS leadership ranks – outed by Col. Riley’s close friend Richard Hall – eight state coordinators have quit as has OAS’s only major supporter in the form of the CSPOA, and finally, despite repeated assurances that Maj. Gen Paul Vallely would have no part of OAS, he will. Now that the event is only days away it appears that Vallely will, in fact, be playing a large role, bringing his Tea Party Nation and Stand Up America groups in for support.
I’m not one to care about danger. I am a child of the Living God, I am Saved by the blood of the Lamb. What is the worst thing they could do, kill me? Ha. If I die I’m going straight to Heaven, do not pass go, screw the $200. Threatening me with death does not scare me. If my wife were not barely hanging on to life I would go to Washington D.C. to cover Operation American Spring no matter what might happen; but since I do not know how much longer she has to live, I’m not going to take the chance of being away when she needs me most, when Father calls her Home.
I can NOT advise that any of you do the same. Whatever Operation American Spring might have once been, it is my considered opinion as a tactically trained US Marine – an opinion shared by several Marine and Army combat veterans expressed during this show – that it is now a controlled opposition FBI honey trap designed to identify, and possibly arrest and/or harm, Patriots that plan on attending OAS; particularly those who have been herded into the Bull Run Regional Campground.
Any Patriots and militia that still plan on attending OAS on May 16th should be aware of one thing: Militia members at the Bundy ranch are now being investigated by the FBI after Las Vegas Metro, Clark County, and federal officers claimed that they felt threatened by the presence of militia with loaded weapons at the ranch. There is no way that the government will ever be able to prove that any particular Patriot ever aimed his weapon directly at a law enforcement officer; but that will not prevent them from “SWAT Teaming” suspects at 3 a.m.
I think we’ve seen all too clearly that when someone is “SWATTED,” whether they are guilty of a crime or not (cops have a bad habit of going to the wrong house and killing the wrong people – and getting away with it,) it very seldom turns out well for the victim.
I will continue to keep everyone who plans to take part in OAS, and those who intend to oppose the event, in my prayers. I will pray that the brave Patriots who intend on standing up to Tyranny will be kept safe, and that the traitors that oppose them will see the error of their ways before it is too late, that if they try to fire on peaceful protestors their weapons will jam, and that they will be blinded and unable to take aim if they get a Patriot in their sights.
God bless and Semper Fi,
This evening as I went through incoming emails, I went through the ‘Alerts’ folder where all my Google Alerts arrive. As usual there were a number of inconsequential hits, but one caught my eye. It was actually where Google had spotted a blog entry and replies on The TexasFred Blog.
Unarmed is NOT something I DO. If these people intend to MARCH on D.C. and to do ANY type of *removal* of elected officials then they have effectively engaged in acts of anarchy against the elected government of this nation.
Now don’t take me wrong, I have NO ISSUE with ALL of them being removed from the Obama regime, and to be removed BY FORCE if necessary, but you don’t go to a REVOLUTION unarmed.
Any leader worth his salt knows that and if said leader advocates leading an unarmed REVOLUTION, all he’s going to do is get a lot of American citizens killed for nothing.
Among the replies was this …
This has happened before: July 28th, 1932. Old geezers, like me, remember the “Bonus Army” and what happened that afternoon beginning around 4:30 PM. If you are not familiar with this terrible event and the events leading up to it, please read the article at: http://www.historynet.com/the-bonus-army-war-in-washington.htm
Any one who has commanded troops in the field will tell you — you do not place your men in a trap — like a downtown area such as the Mall — with no cover and no means of escape. It would be a massacre.
It breaks my heart to report that I am convinced that American troops would, and will, fire upon American citizens if, and when, ordered to do so. The officer corp has been effective stripped of officers who might have refused such an order.
My study of the American Civil War gleaned story after story of American troops, on both sides of the conflict, weeping openly as they mowed down their brother Americans on the opposing side, even, at times, cheering the bravery of the men they were slaughtering.
If Americans are going to war, again, with each other, understand — the citizenry will be divided just as it was during the 1861-1865 conflict. It will quickly devolve into brother against brother, all over again. We must be prepared for that. There will be no time for PTSD. There will be no middle ground. It will not be a regional war. It will be a national war. There will be no place to hide. It will take a commitment that, frankly, I don’t believe modern Americans can muster , at least for a prolonged period.
… And we’ll never get America back. The enmity between survivors will be so intense, the Balkans will look like a Sunday School picnic. We will never again have a cohesive country on these shores.
I know that this line of thought has been expressed recently by others, but I have never seen it put so concisely and clearly. Speaking for myself, I read those words with a sense of dread as I was forced to face head-on what Harry Riley intends to unleash on Americans.
May God have mercy on us all.

How the Bill of Rights
to Enslave Us.
Subtitle: “How A Colonel (Riley) Would Destroy American Freedoms in Lincoln’s Name”
This is a portion of what RPMckinely (Ron), a “second in command” of O.A.S, wrote in his thread “A Little information and knowledge about our Constitution and the Bill Of Rights”
This is when they decided that in order to protect the people themselves from their own government, and to restrain that government from becoming too restrictive and abusive towards the people, then it would be wise on their part to make sure there were certain rights and freedoms of the people that the government could never regulate or remove. These rights and freedoms would be protected against any kind of government abuse. These certain rights and freedoms that were written into our Constitution are what we refer to today as our Bill of Rights.
In the beginning the government was regulated to only those eighteen enumerated powers and authority, while the people were restricted only by their own levels of regulation and moral retrains.
The founders had to make sure that of all the freedoms and liberties assumed by the people there would also be a certain few of those rights that the government could never regulate or remove.
And as history now shows our founding fathers were right, certain rights and freedoms had to be protected from any potential government abuse……
Actually Ron’s description is quite inaccurate, probably to the surprise of many. And the oversight by so many in understanding why this is inaccurate, is a part of the cause of the predicament in which we find ourselves today. Ron is the poster child as to why “little knowledge” is dangerous to our freedoms, and history stands to refute his Elementary School rendition of the Constitution.
The fact of the matter, and the Constitution itself, is those rights were already protected in the Constitution by the strictly enumerated powers that bound the federal government, as well as the rest of federal government’s design in that document. If government has no authority to deny rights under any of its specified powers, then there would be no real need to specify those rights.
Not a one of government’s enumerated powers even allow the creation of ANY LAW whatsoever that might be applicable within the States themselves. If anyone doubts this, go ahead and read Article 1, Section 8 “Powers of Congress” and see if any of those enumerated powers even hint at the ability to write laws applicable within the States, that might allow the government to impair freedom of speech, freedom of association, freedom of religion, due process, or allow that personal papers and effects on our persons and within our property might be subject to unreasonable search and seizure. The power to violate those things is nowhere present in those legitimate powers of the federal government, and the States themselves were each recognized to be sovereign, also immune to federal intrusive dictate.
Alexander Hamilton discusses those Rights at length in Federalist #84, at a time before they were yet included in the Constitution as the Bill of Rights. To the dismay of those who now read Federalist #84 today, Hamilton argues at length why those rights should NOT be included in the Constitution. Many interpret Hamilton’s statements as cause to condemn him as a statist having no regard for those Rights, but in doing so they ignore Hamilton’s own words, as well as a great portion of this country’s more contemporary history.
Hamilton not only indicates why a Bill of Rights should be unnecessary, but beyond that, why the inclusion of such would even be “dangerous”:
I go further, and affirm that bills of rights, in the sense and to the extent in which they are contended for, are not only unnecessary in the proposed Constitution, but would even be dangerous. They would contain various exceptions to powers not granted; and, on this very account, would afford a colorable pretext to claim more than were granted. For why declare that things shall not be done which there is no power to do? Why, for instance, should it be said that the liberty of the press shall not be restrained, when no power is given by which restrictions may be imposed? I will not contend that such a provision would confer a regulating power; but it is evident that it would furnish, to men disposed to usurp, a plausible pretense for claiming that power.
They might urge with a semblance of reason, that the Constitution ought not to be charged with the absurdity of providing against the abuse of an authority which was not given, and that the provision against restraining the liberty of the press afforded a clear implication, that a power to prescribe proper regulations concerning it was intended to be vested in the national government. This may serve as a specimen of the numerous handles which would be given to the doctrine of constructive powers, by the indulgence of an injudicious zeal for bills of rights.
To paraphrase what Hamilton indicated in #84, the inclusion of a Bill of Rights in the Constitution would serve as a “colorable pretext”, or an excuse, for government to claim as powers those Rights actually stipulated in the Bill of Rights, and indeed Hamilton has been vindicated because this is precisely what our own history has shown.
Even we ourselves have been trained to reference that Bill of Rights as if it were actually a vital grant of those rights, when in truth it only recognizes rights that exist even outside it, even as indicated in the 9th Amendment. Our own reference to the “Second Amendment”, rather than directly referencing our unalienable right to keep and bear arms in our own defense, without caveat or infringement, shows the degree of our own brainwashing in treating the 2nd Amendment as if it were the actual provision of that right.
Here is another contemporary example of which I speak,specifically regarding the right to keep and bear arms, showing how screwed up even our own mental concept of our rights are, even from their listing in the Bill of Rights.
Caravan To Midnight Host John B Wells asks U.S. Marine Major (Ret) Bill Donahue, “What about in furtherance of disarming [Americans]…?” Donohue replies “… in a Representative Democracy, if the House and Senate voted to outlaw arms, and changed the second amendment, and voted a law to outlaw arms, that is a law we’d have to abide by… that’s the way it works”.
This is scary stuff, particularly coming from our military! The right to keep and bear arms is NOT a grant from the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution, but rather only a right recognized therein. Furthermore, no “law” is able to change the 2nd Amendment, nor is even any amendment to the Constitution able to change that fundamental right, which again is not a provision from the Constitution itself. The Constitution does not “allow for” the Right to keep and bear arms, but rather recognizes the existence of that unalienable right, and phrases it in the Second Amendment in context of the terms for the federal government. Furthermore, we are also deliberately NOT a “Representative Democracy”, but rather a Constitutional Republic. The people’s “representatives” have no authority to remove unalienable rights, no matter how large the majority may be that elected them.
Unfortunately Major Bill Donahue has previously sullied the Constitution and our freedoms, and this was shown in events demonstrating a clear tie between Major Donahue and Colonel Harry Riley of Operation American Spring. In 2008 Harry Riley engaged in a vocal campaign condemning 33 Senators who he alleges voted against a bill making English as the Official language of these United States. Major Donahue posted an article on this matter entitled “Colonel Harry Riley USA Speaks Out”, consisting of an email letter written by Harry Riley, in which Riley himself apparently gave the email the subject title of “The Colonel and Mr. Lincoln.” By this title, Harry Riley evidently imagines himself in esteemed company, standing beside Lincoln. Riley concluded that letter with a quote of Lincoln’s: :
PRESIDENT ABRAHAM LINCOLN SAID:‘Congressmen who willfully take actions during wartime that damages morale and undermine the military are saboteurs and should be arrested, quickly tried and hanged!!!“
(I will ignore that Riley was sloppy and wrong, and Lincoln never actually said these words, but rather they are the result of a misrepresentation by J. Michael Waller. I will likewise ignore the fact that Riley was again sloppy and wrong about the terms of the English language vote, however the audience should be detecting a persistent trend here.)
It should be rather disturbing to every American that these words attributed to Lincoln would be revered by anyone, but particularly by those in the U.S. military, given that Lincoln was the President who single-handedly chose to make war on the sovereign States, who had lawfully chosen to disengage themselves from a federal government that had repeatedly abused its own constitutional obligation to the South over decades, resulting in the deaths of 620,000 Americans, the devastation of the entire country, and the arrest without trial of anyone critical of the war. (See Habeas Corpus, “Writ of Liberty”, and Copperheads and also Clement L. Vallandigham)
It should be even more chilling that Harry Riley, a U.S. Army Colonel, would revere these words, especially since Riley himself has set up in his 3-phase plan for Operation American Spring, the institution of a “Tribunal” to consist of hand-chosen persons sitting in judgment without regard to law, obviously entirely outside and in defiance of the U.S. Constitution, but quite in agreement with the institution of military martial law. Colonel Harry Riley has far more in common with the totalitarian ambitions of one Barack Obama than he admits to, and his blind supporters care to recognize.
The sole purpose of the government is not the Union itself, and most certainly the purpose of that government is NOT to protect the U.S. military, even from only criticism. The singular purpose of government, any and every form of government, even as clearly identified in the Declaration of Independence, is stated to be:
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men,
deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends,
it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it,…
Lincoln’s abolishment of Habeas Corpus, a fundamental right to challenge the reason for one’s imprisonment, so as to promote the unhindered warfare upon his own fellow Americans and impose his tyrannous dictate on the entire country, does not make Lincoln a person to be revered, but rather reviled. Colonel Harry Riley quite clearly needs to review the Declaration of Independence, as well as the Constitution itself, … unless of course his actual intent is as his actions repeatedly show, and not actually involving the restoration of Constitutional governance.
Our government was meant to be shackled by those limited enumerated powers, and never meant to be allowed into the business of “Rights”, as those rights specifically and implicitly are recognized to protect us from government itself, and never intended to be used as any sort of “demand license” to be used against our fellow citizens, as it is abused now. For example, the idea that a community must accept a Mosque in its midst, along with the repeated call to prayer, simply because of the 1st Amendment’s “Freedom of Religion”, should be utterly ridiculous. Similarly the idea that our schools must be turned into litigation battlegrounds for expectant “free speech”, should be equally ridiculous, but then neither should those schools be zones of compelled indoctrination. What happened is the government used the inclusion of the Bill of Rights as a “colorable pretext” to imply it was in the business of policing rights, and by government’s selective choosing, the provision of rights, when rights were designed to specifically protect from that government, and to prohibit just such actions!
From those rights, we see the federal government taking that “freedom of the press”, and believing it might even now, recently, just as Hamilton warned, have a “power to prescribe proper regulations concerning it”, to define who and what constitute that press, so as to limit that protection, and afford the federal government protection from it, giving the law the Orwellian title of “Media Shield law” (Hamilton seems prescient here); or cherry-picking what is not an undue “infringement” on the right to keep and bear arms, with the Court even arguing in current precedent that these 2nd Amendment rights do not apply to the States. All of these acts, and more, use that very Bill of Rights as just such a “colorable pretext” to provide excuse that those rights can be further defined, and even might be Amended as indicated in Article V, even to be entirely annulled!
This all involves the federal government believing its job is to police those Rights, from the “colorable pretext” of the Bill of Rights itself, when those rights are specifically to protect against that federal government. How far we have allowed this country to be dragged from our Founder’s vision.
The federal government really began policing rights, and by their recognition, both creating and denying those rights, in the aftermath of the Civil War, which itself represented the oppression by force of the rights and legitimate authority of the sovereign people of the southern States. This corruption began with the adoption of the 13th Amendment abolishing slavery, and the forced ratification of the 14th Amendment to be re-admitted to the Union (which those states allegedly never left, and never could leave), and the 15th Amendment with its protection of suffrage. Yet there was no need for such an Amendment to abolish slavery, as no one was ever enslaved by anything in the Constitution! However We, the people have continued to be enslaved by the government’s entry into rights distribution.
Somehow, in the recognition of blacks as free persons, government entered into the rights policing business via the back door of Civil Rights, and our freedoms were lost in the process. The founders wisely rejected the idea of the Constitution directly dictating the emancipation of blacks, because allowing such power to be vested in government would create the very sort of tyrannous government able to dictate the terms of society, precisely what this nation’s founders fought to free themselves from. Yet this dictatorial government is what the corruption of “rights” has allowed in preset times.
This corruption then escalated with the first Progressives jn the early 20th century. This corruption of the government’s role, and the function of the Constitution itself, is nowhere seen more clearly than in the 18th Amendment and Prohibition, dictating to the citizenry what they could, and could not, imbibe. The purpose of the Constitution is nowhere to grant rights, nor limit them, but rather to define government itself, so that inclusion of an Amendment dictating what the citizenry cannot imbibe, is indicative of the Constitution’s intent and government’s authority, both being radically corrupted.
If not for such corruptions, Civil Rights could never provide an excuse for government to compel within the states school integration, and even mandate busing, violating the very freedoms of those being bused, and inappropriately using the force of the National Guard to uphold such tyrannous overreach. Sure, we can all recognize an integrated society as being a positive thing, however the means of achieving this came about through tyrannous abuse of government force, justified under the pretense of doing something good and positive, just as is being done with Health Care. The ability of government to dictate the subjective “good”, became the entree for a limitless array of unsavory dictatorial actions, all oppressing Freedom.
Unless we return government to its “box”, only exercising those specifically enumerated powers, then we will be continually battling on a slippery slope of our own allowance, in which government is repeatedly usurping authority over rights specifically intended to protect us from that government, and sacrificing our freedoms on the process. To allow government reach beyond that box, is to provide government the excuse and opportunity to enslave us, and this is what we’ve seen with the EPA, FDA, Dept of Energy, Dept of Education, ObamaCare, and most recently, from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in Nevada this past weekend.
No, the Bill of Rights itself does not provide us the vital grant of our rights, but its existence within the Constitution became the means by which we are enslaved.
Today it became clearly obvious that Operation American Spring is experiencing significant problems.

The lack of any sort of response from the leadership of OAS is not going to inspire the general membership, especially as it is only four weeks until OAS goes live. Coupled with the fact that OAS Demands have been presented to the politicians in the name of the OAS membership, but the membership has not been shown what they have put their name to, one wonders just what the hell is really going on?
