VOLIN: “THIS CROWD IS ENORMOUS”
by Sharon Rondeau
(May 16, 2014) — On Friday, commentator, writer and radio show host Erik Rush opened his show with a recording of Obama taking the oath of office in 2013.
Rush reported that Mike Volin, founder of WheresObamasBirthCertificate.com, is “on the ground now in DC” and in the process of meeting with Operation American Spring (OAS) founder Col. Harry Riley (Ret.).
Live streaming of the event is posted at the Gunny G blog.
Rush stated that “the White House is under fire from all directions now” because of the recently-exposed scandal within the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), which allowed dozens of veterans to pass away from lack of medical care. Certain employees within the VA reportedly created false medical appointments which denied veterans certain tests and treatments while $10,000,000 was spent on new VA office furniture.
Rush, who is biracial, stated that while “Barack Hussein Obama” was touted as “the first black president,” he was installed by people wishing to advance a “statist, communist agenda.”
At 11:20 a.m., Rush brought Volin and Riley on the air, both of whom were at the Washington Monument, from which Miki Booth reported earlier. Volin said that heavy rain has been falling since Thursday. “It’s extremely windy,” Volin said. “It was horrible this morning, but we trudged through because we have a message.”
However, for the last hour, the sun has broken through, Volin reported.
Volin said that there will be a prayer service on Sunday morning on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Regarding Riley, Volin said that “the crowd is continuing to gather…people are flocking in here” to meet him.
At11:24, Riley came on the air and said that the bad weather would not stop OAS’s plans to protest corruption in government. He asked “patriots” in states surrounding Washington, DC to consider attending OAS. “We need to keep a flow of folks in here and hopefully get the attention of the lawless leadership in DC and get some changes,” Riley said.
Riley told Rush that Congress has “abrogated” its responsibility and allowed Obama to become a dictator ‘with a pen,” referring to Obama’s assertion that he can change policies “with a pen and a phone,” without input from Congress. Riley said he spoke with the park police, who “have no problems with what we’re doing” to ease the expressed fears by some of a confrontation between OAS attendees and government agents.
“We need millions of individuals to come, lock arms with us and support us,” Riley said. “Everything is completely peaceful and joyful…I’m totally overjoyed to be part of ‘We the People’ who are here and will be here,” he said just before a commercial break.
Rush said that today’s show, which runs through 1:00 p.m. EDT, is “dedicated” to OAS. At 2:00 p.m., Rush will host Volin’s radio show to continue OAS coverage.
At 11:34 a.m., Volin reported that Riley is “making a speech right now” and has received numerous interview requests.
Volin said at 11:49 that there is “a very large Tea Party presence” at OAS and brought on Miki Booth, who said she has met many people she knew from past rallies.
“Are you seeing a lot of veterans there?” Rush asked, to which Booth responded, “Oh, yes, I think I see more veterans here than Tea Partiers.” Booth said it was “wonderful being here and seeing all these people.”
At 12:17 p.m., Rush mentioned the VA scandal with an OAS attendee, saying that it is “worse than criminal.” The guest mentioned that the Obama regime calls returning veterans “potential domestic terrorists,” as The Post & Email has noted in dozens of reports.
At 12:30 p.m., another guest and friend of Booth’s said that the number of people is increasing and that she has found it very uplifting. “We can’t give up now,” she said. “This is the beginning, not the end.” Booth had spoken to The Post & Email this morning about her friend Kari, who came from Southern California.
Rush asked if any “planned speakers” were scheduled for today, to which Kari responded that while Pastor Wiley Drake is the official OAS chaplain, non-ordained individuals are “getting up and speaking their minds in front of the group.”
At 12:37, Volin brought on an acquaintance, Deb, who said that “the Good Lord provided sunshine” for OAS attendees. “It’s been absolutely amazing,” she said. She then mentioned that commentator Glenn Beck said on his show that OAS was “calling for violence,” which Riley has specifically prohibited.
She said that she saw people from “every state,” including “The Connecticut Three-Percenters.”
Rush said he heard Beck’s broadcast and said that it is “unfortunate” that Beck “has chosen to misrepresent” the real mission of OAS.
The caller said that Beck has her phone number and offered on air to have a “one-on-one” between Riley and Beck about “the truth.”
Volin said that Deb is the press relations person for OAS.
At 12:43 p.m., Pastor Wiley Drake came on Rush’s show while he was conducting his own “Wiley Drake Show.” Drake urged listeners to visit Volin’s website, WheresObamasBirthCertificate.com to see evidence of fraud, forgery and criminality. “I would encourage you to go there and get a kit,” Drake said, referring to Volin’s Sheriff’s Kits, which contain a full-length presentation of the conclusions of the Maricopa County, AZ Cold Case Posse regarding Obama’s long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration form.
Last November, Volin and a team of volunteers traveled to Washington and distributed more than 200 kits to members of Congress, although none have acknowledged viewing it.
Ed, an assistant to Riley, said that the purpose of OAS is because “we want our Constitution back.” He stated that there are related OAS rallies at state capitols beginning next week. “Whatever your effort is, double it…This is the time when we must step up…when if we don’t step up, we run the chance of losing it all…” he said. Ed said that instead of signing a petition, OAS attendees have “delivered it in person” by going to Washington. He ended by quoting the words of Benjamin Franklin: “We must, indeed, hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”
