If you want to have a good laugh, take a look at the brilliant plan put together by the organizers of Operation American Spring. I especially like the “concept of operations,” which comprises three phases.
Phase 1 – Field millions, as many as ten million, patriots who will assemble in a peaceful, non-violent, physically unarmed (Spiritually/Constitutionally armed), display of unswerving loyalty to the US Constitution and against the incumbent government leadership in Washington D.C., with the mission to replace with law abiding leadership. Go full-bore, no looking back, steadfast in the mission.
Welp, that didn’t work out. Instead of “as many as ten million” they got as many as a few hundred, as predicted by everyone other than them.
Now here’s where it gets funny. Congress doesn’t just get to “deal with vacancies” in the executive branch and appoint replacements. There is a presidential succession plan already in the law. And guess what would happen if you removed all of those people from office? Sen. Patrick Leahy, the president pro-tempore of the Senate, would become president. I’m guessing they wouldn’t be happy about that.
Phase 2 – One million or more of the assembled 10 million must be prepared to stay in D.C. as long as it takes to see Obama, Biden, Reid, McConnell, Boehner, Pelosi, and Attorney General Holder removed from office.
Consistent with the US Constitution, as required, the U.S. Congress will take appropriate action, execute appropriate legislation, deal with vacancies, or U.S. States will appoint replacements for positions vacated consistent with established constitutional requirements.
Phase 3 – Those with the principles of a West, Cruz, Dr. Ben Carson, Lee, DeMint, Paul, Gov Walker, Sessions, Gowdy, Jordan, should comprise a tribunal and assume positions of authority to convene investigations, recommend appropriate charges against politicians and government employees to the new U.S. Attorney General appointed by the new President.
Uh, yeah. This would be illegal. We do not convene tribunals of this type (they’re called star chambers). The new attorney general could appoint a special prosecutor to do such an investigation, but if Holder is removed from office he would be replaced by the Deputy Attorney General, not by Congress (a new attorney general would be nominated by President Leahy).
Irony: This plan they came up with to “restore the constitution” and the rule of law is blatantly unconstitutional.
