Air Force Lt. Gen. Craig Franklin out over sexual assault decisions

Did this quote put him in Obama's crosshairs?

An Air Force general at the center of criticism of the military’s sexual assault policies is stepping down as the Pentagon works to clean up its ranks under the close watch of President Barack Obama and Congress.

Lt. Gen. Craig Franklin will step down at the end of the month from his post as the commander of the Third Air Force amid questions that he’s mishandled prosecutions in two sexual assault cases.

In the most high-profile case, Franklin last spring overturned the jury conviction and sentence of a fighter pilot. His decision prompted an outcry from lawmakers who said he was protecting one of his men and led to major legislative changes to the military’s World War II-era justice system.

Yep, choosing Israel over Der Furher's muslim terrorist buddies got General Franklin in hot water.

Another one for the right side of future history.

  Getting rid of protectors of the constitution by the droves replacing with puppets of the far left.  How long will it be before we see constitutional Senators and Representatives arrested on their respective floors.   National Anthem changed to the Internationale.   Fema's Gulags are being put in place.  Good news gun sales are overwhelmingly ahead of Affordable Care Act signups.

Any support of Israel in the era of the muslim marxist Obama is a sure step to oblivion for our military personnel.

How many high ranking officers does this make now? The count was over 200 at one time. In all my life I've never seen anything like this.

Since Hanna and Ishmael were sent away from Abraham, Sarah, and Isaac,  there has been enmity between Jews and Ishmael's descendants.  The muslim religion was born and their (along with Satan) goal was genocide against of Israel.  Since Christians are founded on the Messiah of the Jews we are hated also.

Because we have put a muslim in the White  House it has been his closet goal to bring this Christian nation to its knees and destroy Israel.  POTUS (POS) is purging the military so as to have no resistance when he comes for your guns.  He has to do that before he can make subjects of us.  We will, if he is successful, then do his bidding or be placed in a gulag. 

Bryan,

Your logic is slightly off..........

When he comes for your guns it is not the military that will resist.

Resistance will come from NRA Members and Citizen owners of over 200,000,000 guns.

He will be a very sorry guy if he makes that mistake

You misunderstood.  The military would PROTECT the citizens for the UN unless b.o. purges the military first.  The POS will not be hurt in either case.  He's a wimp.  Did you know that the NRA supported Dingy Harry Reid against Sharon Angle.  I'm no longer a member of NRA.  TSRA is more vocal in Texas.  As old as I am. I'll have to stand my ground when they come.  Not up to nights in the field any more.

Bryan,

I'm confused.....what does

"...military would PROTECT the citizens for the UN...."

mean?

I didn't know about support for Dirty Harry.... quite troubling. I'll have to research that.

I'll be with you!

Same here..what's meant by "...military would PROTECT the citizens for the UN...."?

B,

Here's the result of my research.............

 = = = =

While the National Rifle Association will not be endorsing Harry Reid in his re-election race, it won't be endorsing Sharron Angle, either.

Check it out

 = = = = =

So, DID the NRA do as you said?

 = = = = =

Regardless, I'll be ther with you when they come..............

Absolutely... the UN Population Division has a goal of reducing the population of the World by 5 Billion before the year 2021... too, reach a sustainable world population of under 2 Billion.

That will require a zero growth rate and a loss of 5 billion thru natural and other causes ... sounds like a lot of people need to vacate the world in a hurry.

ALERT ALERT

Deep State Treason:  Former State Dept. Official Under Trump Tells China To Quit Negotiating Until Trump Is Removed In 2020

Deep state traitors no longer hide their deep hatred for the American people —

Mrs. Susan Thornton, the former acting assistant secretary of state in the Trump administration, told her Beijing audience to stop negotiating until President Trump is removed from office in 2020.

Until July 2018, she was Acting Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs at the Department of State and led East Asia policy making amid crises with North Korea, escalating trade tensions with China, and a fast-changing international environment.

The Conservative Treehouse and The South China Morning News reported:

A former official in the Trump administration has said that China can weather the storm brought by the trade war with the United States but might have to “keep steady, keep their heads down and wait” for change in the White House.

Susan Thornton, former acting assistant secretary of state to US President Donald Trump, told a gathering in Shanghai on Wednesday that she hoped a trade deal between the US and China could be concluded by next month.

But the reality was that it would “take a while” for China and the US to talk about cooperation again, Thornton, who in 20 years rose to become the US State Department’s chief negotiator for East Asia and Pacific affairs, told the South China Morning Post.

“I want to be optimistic,” said Thornton, whose 27-year career in Washington ended in July. “I tell all our foreign counterparts they should keep steady, keep their heads down and wait. [They should] try to not let anything change dramatically.”

“If this sceptical attitude towards talking diplomacy continues in this administration, you might have to wait till another administration,” Thornton said at an event held by National Committee of US-China relations and Shanghai’s American Chamber.
