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.

Gohmert: Dems Will Drag Out Impeachment — Try To Get ‘Best Socialist’ Nominated For President

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN on Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered his best assessment of what House Democrats were trying to accomplish with their impeachment efforts.

Gohmert told WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” impeachment could tie up the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign efforts but predicted Democrats would use the occasion to nominate “the best socialist” they can.

“They would lose in the Senate,” Gohmert said on impeachment. “And besides that, the entire time it was on trial in the Senate, the Democrats who are running for president wouldn’t be allowed to campaign. That’s in the Constitution. They wouldn’t be able to campaign. I just can’t imagine them wanting to do that because if they send it to the Senate, they have now perfectly set up the scenario of 1996, where they will reassure Donald Trump is reelected as president. They don’t want to do that. They’re probably going to drag this thing out as long as they possibly can … through Iowa, through primaries — try to get the best socialist they can to be nominated.”

“Then just end up and say, ‘Now we’re close enough to the general election. We’ve thrown mud at the president through the House,’” he continued. “What they’re really doing — they’re using taxpayer funds to campaign against Trump. That’s all this is — a campaign fund that taxpayers are paying for in order to try to throw mud at the president. I’ll be surprised if they have that vote, but I can’t imagine they want to set up this president for reelection by having a trial in the Senate where they lose.”
