Update: This piece originally ran on February 25, 2014. Kimball is the New Hampshire state leader for Operation American Spring, which kicks off Friday.
Jack Kimball, former chair of the New Hampshire Republican Party, is attempting to recruit thousands of Granite Staters to join him in an effort to overthrow the U.S. government. “We have an opportunity on May 16th with Operation American Spring in Washington, D.C.,” he told gun rights activists who rallied in Concord on Sunday:
This effort is to get 10 million-plus Americans to show up and demand that the entire leadership, all of it including the Republican leadership, step down. All of them, step down and we won’t leave until that happens.
This is an aggressive effort but we should go and make sure that we take back this government and this country. If we can get 10 million people there, and most of us stay until we win the battle…
And by the way, you saw what happened in the Ukraine. You saw what happened in Egypt. You’re seeing what’s happening in Venezuela. And they don’t have what we have. We have the Second Amendment, they do not…
Operation American Spring is the brainchild of retired U.S. Army Col. Harry Riley. His plan calls for millions of Americans to 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 bring down the existing leadership.”
After the president and congressional leaders are removed from office, his plan envisions 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.”
"Those with the principles of a West, Cruz, Dr. Ben Carson, Lee, DeMint, Paul, Gov Walker, Sessions, Gowdy [and] Jordan," will then lead a tribunal and "recommend appropriate charges against politicians and government employees to the new U.S. Attorney General appointed by the new President."
