(May 17, 2014) — On Saturday night, The Post & Email spoke with three attendees of Operation American Spring (OAS), all of whom provided unique perspectives on the event thus far.

Mike Volin, founder of WheresObamasBirthCertificate.com (WOBC), said that he will be holding a strategy session this evening with a team of volunteers, with more news to be released at a later time.

Volin will be broadcasting live beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday morning for a prayer meeting, with The Post & Email and researcher Martha Trowbridge co-hosting.

We asked Volin what the high point of Saturday was, to which he responded, “the march on the White House.”  He added, “Everybody was totally silent.  There was no mumbling or grumbling; there was no shouting or screaming.  There was no “Rah, rah rah!”  We followed directions.  We marched from the [National] Mall quietly, peacefully, to a drum roll.  When we got to the White House, we were told to stop and form a line.  From the pictures, you can get an idea of how many people were at the White House; a whole block.  I ran out and grabbed some pictures, and then Ruth had her flag upside-down.  One of the coordinators noticed it, and said, ‘Wow, that’s a great idea,’ and then everybody was told to turn their flags upside-down.  That’s a sign of distress.  We just stood still; nobody spoke from Operation American Spring.  We just stood there, turned around, and we walked all the way back to the Mall.  We did a loop around the U-turn, and when we were out of sight of the White House, we turned the flags up correctly.  But when we were in front of the White House, our backs were turned to the White House, and the flags were turned upside-down.”

Jeff Harrison, a WOBC volunteer and founder of “Operation Pony Express,” next spoke with The Post & Email and said that an OAS spokesman coined the slogan, “We are here; why aren’t you?”

Harrison said that while serving in the Marine Corps, he was expected to “lead by example.”  “Why aren’t other high-ranking officers here?” he asked.

“We have people who walk, and we have people who talk, and we need more walkers than talkers,” Harrison continued.  “We need people to continue to do what they’ve been doing, just as Lt. Zullo asked people to write letters to their congressmen,” he said, referring to Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo, who announced more than two years ago that Obama’s long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration form are “computer-generated forgeries.”

“Once again, we need to continue to press that, and people need to write letters to their congressmen at their local offices,” Harrison said.  “We need to send letters by priority mail and certified, registered receipt. They need to make phone calls; they need to go visit their congressmen in local offices.  They need to contact their family members.  We need backup.  We’re doing the hard work.”

“I think Mike sent you a photograph of a veteran in a wheelchair who is 100% disabled.  He was in Vietnam and subjected to Agent Orange.  It took him ten years to get his benefits.  There was one lady who came from out West who took a two-day bus ride and is paralyzed from the waist down.  There was a veteran with a walker with wheels on it.  There was a lady who was in the Army during Vietnam and was a technician who when they operate, they give the tools to the doctor.  We had all kinds of people from different nationalities here.  The one main thing is that we have a lot of talkers.  People need to get off the bench and get in the game.”

Cheryl Surber, who has two Bachelor’s degrees in media a Master’s degree in marketing, spoke with us with an idea to urge the major media to cover OAS.  “Regarding ‘I was here; where were you?’ we need to expand on that.  We need to get a lot of people who are out there to contact the news media’s Facebook pages and put a comment, ‘I was here, where were you?'” she said. “If they had 2,000 or 3,000 individuals putting that comment there, I think they’d get the message that they need to get themselves in gear and report this.”

“One of the things I learned when I was taking radio and TV classes is that the airwaves belong to the public:  not to the broadcaster, not to the station, not to the on-air talent, not to the local station.  It belongs to the public.  These various entities are licensed to operate in the public interest.  This absolutely would be the public interest in order for you to be a fully-informed voter and citizen.  So we ought to make the case that it’s in the public interest.  ‘I’m here; where are you? It’s in the public interest for you to report on this.  Where are you?'”

“It sickens me that they are licensed…they should all lose their license,” Surber said.  “We should all call up and complaint to the FCC if they don’t do it.  We could have 1,000 or 2,000 people bombarding each of them:  CNN, NBC, CBS, Fox, MSNBC.  Glenn Beck has been telling people not to come.  I am so angry with that guy.”

Volin and Harrison then shared a special event they have planned for Sunday following the prayer service.

  1. Sorry.. doing this from my phone Sharon. Its suppose to read.,Sharon at the P&E has been the most gracious of editors in chiefs.. hope you can edit for me. Your comment section doesn’t allow me to paste from a chopped section. Sorry for tuples.

  2. I loved reading this article and the comments. I would add something from the perspective of a Candidate for PRES,which I have experience in from 2008 and 2012.,as will declaring in 2016 out of necessity of a continued held standing argument on McCain’s and Obama’s Eligibility. While it is about difficult to bring up as it might appear self-serving which it is not. I’m not there because I have no funds.

    Politicians survive and die with contributions. We also report to the F.E.C. While there are no contributions to any candidate who supports the eligibility principle in the U.S.C. the message to every politician in Washington DC is what?

    Yes many more walkers than talkers. $5 from every person at O.A.S says probably at least 150,000 to a pres candidate, but it says” support” to every politician in Washington DC and that’s worth millions.

    One of the biggest flaws of O.A.S is asking people to resign and at the same time not supporting any viable solution by word or deed.

    There is a translation there no one is getting. I hope in a strategy session this is brought up,because guess who you’re dealing with? Politicians! They see the lack of support at not having a single Pres Candidate there that has supported the issue as a referendum not to.

    That has got to change..and with just a little change from every one it could.

    I am your humble servant, and I have been free so far in that it hasn’t cost you anything. Politicians in DC don’t see that as good.They see it as the cause it’s a liability.

    Actions walk, and The Cow w the Bull talks. Sharon at the P&E has been the misbehaviour editor in chief I know and everyone had seen my plea for help.. no one has responded.

    I would be there if I had a plane ticket.
    Everyone in DC knows that. Of course most have traveled at there own expense,but what message is that to DC Politicians compared to getting someone there whose competing in the arena for their funds.

    http://www.codyjudy.us has a contribution page for everyone to consider. Take it with a grain of salt or with the wisdom for which it is given. The choice is yours. I’ve done my home work as a candidate and done it at my expense.

  3. When Glen Beck was on FOX News he “bit his tongue” on the Birther issue. He could have said a lot more than he did. He and other Fox News personages called Birthers “Pinheads” and “Crazy”. These personages included O’Reilly, Anderson and Geraldo. They put on a show with their claim of “fair and balanced” reporting.Fox News is as guilty of hiding the facts as is the mainstream media News outlets.

  4. We have to watch out if PJ Foggy calls in an FBI “false flag operation” all these people could be illegally arrested. Nancy Princess Pelosi is a $64 million dollar trust fund baby that held congress back for two weeks so her husband could make an extra measly $5 million on crooked deals, do you think she will help us out? There are no boundaries to love-or was that “the love of money”? Isn’t that what the Bible talks about as “the root of all evil” which is the “love” of money? Looks like the DNC has got that down pretty well. What else can they do with such talent? Steal, lie and murder are all on the table but again the silence is deafening. “Pay no attention to the man behind that curtain, the GREAT OZ has spoken!” IF I ONLY HAD A BRAIN. Just follow “The Great Joe Shotgun Biden”, forget the Yellow Brick Road, just pull both triggers on that shotgun and fire it off your back porch, it’ll scare them all away! ( And maybe get you arrested for discharging a firearm in a public access area) WOOPS! Shovel Ready! Have another beer Joe, you need one! We need leadership that won’t take candy from kids.

  5. Cheryl, I know about broadcasting, I don’t have a degree in it but Glen Beck is finished in my book, he is a loser who has played out his adolescent game enough and he needs to get a real job and open the mic for someone else. Maybe he could fit in to those “ghost chasing shows” and go away. This is very important and I’m not counting on FOX News to be there since they have ignored every email for years on Walt and all the other Veterans that Obama has illegally thrown in prisons for questioning his criminal status in POTUS who is illegal by “dual citizen” against the Constitutional qualifications for POTUS. Pelosi and Biden falsified his Constitutional Eligibility in 2008 and no one in the DNC has been held accountable. Senators and Congressman have been contacted for years and nothing has been done, the silence has been deafening and there are still Veterans in prisons illegally arrested that tried to legally and peacefully stand up for judicial investigations of this corrupted regime. None of the “media” will cover any of this either and haven’t wanted to know anything about it for years. The Post Email and Martha Trowbridge are the only ones that have stood with Veterans and against government corruption since 2008. It is a national disgrace and a crime against the broadcast network industry as they choose what material is filtered to the public. It’s all about the money and power, the law has no place in their arena. The government hopes that all the Vietnam Veterans will die so that they won’t have to deal with any of them, Bill Clinton made sure that as many of the benefits as possible were taken away from the Vietnam Vets and spent on other pork contrivances. Now, they are planning on doing the same thing to the Middle East Vets as Vets are now having to sue to get benefits as California VA’s are deleting Vets medical files for bonuses and Arizona is pushing Vet appointments up hoping they will die as they also get bonuses and benefit increases! What a deal, maybe we should all go to work for the VA admin and cash in! Well, if you are a Vet, you may have to look the other way as you throw your fellow Vets UNDER THE BUS but not to worry, big paychecks are waiting! Retirement could be big AND you won’t have to worry about any “prosecution” as long as you tell em’ you vote Democrat!
