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.

Yeah, well, I was attempting a bit of humor from "Satin"...

...Along that line, I didn't know that "Nelson" was a "Polish" name!

Yeah... third generation Pollock on my god mothers side.  LOL

Carry on, sir.

Heh.

Maybe shortened from Nelsonski?

[chortle]

Actually Nelsonolinzski

 

In the Marines anyone with a name like that would have been called, "Alphabet"!

lol

I really like the general's picture; he is the square-jawed, clean-shaven, bright-eyed, American manly man!  Most of the men I knew when I was a child in the 1950's looked like him, and I wanted to be one of them when I grew up.

What became of America and American men?

This Officer getting dumped is not anything new and he isn’t the first and won’t be the last. What the Pentagon is doing under Chuck Hegel is trumping up reasons to dump these officers who won’t tow the line with the illegal NDAA in support of UN Agenda 21. Remember the NDAA basically throws the Posse Comitatus act of 1878 out the window. Many of these senior officers realize what this means and don’t like the idea of having to turn their weapons on American citizens at the direction of the POTUS.

Its time for men of conscience too consider what they must do... to maintain their oath of office and their duty to a nation under siege from within.

Agree Ron, but as it is, all the men of conscience are being dismissed from the military and replaced by a new breed. I have the sad displeasure of working with these politically correct sissy boys and girls and I can tell you, it ain’t the military we were in anymore and the officers are pathetic and not fit to shine our boots for us.

Ammo is still relatively cheap [just like Silver] -- so get 'em while their hot !!   IMHO, gathering priority PREPPING stuff, is only 2nd to getting right with the Lord !  Be "nice" to people in general, and don't make waves so the cops, and thought police won't look at you and your home to discover all your "goodies."   The day will come, and soon, when we will have to Spring into Action, and you don't want to go into battle with just a stone axe or a sling shot !!   Learn to hide things, and train your family/ kids to say NOTHING !  jUST MY 2 CENTS WORTH.

ALERT ALERT

TRUMP ->  WHY DOES ANTIFA NEVER ATTACK BIKERS FOR TRUMP?

President insults leftists during social media summit

The president made reference to the Antifa attack on gay Asian journalist Andy Ngo in Portland last month.

“Do you ever notice they pick on certain people?” asked Trump.

"Did you ever notice they don't come after Bikers For  Trump?"@realDonaldTrump calls out ANTIFA for the wussies that they are.

“He would tell you he’s not the toughest person physically in the world – they don’t go after Bikers For Trump, you ever notice that, they don’t go after our construction workers who love us, they don’t go after the police,” he added.

Trump went on to further insult far-leftists, joking, “They live in the basement of their mom’s home,” while asserting that they all had skinny arms.

“But they have the black masks on and they have sticks, they hit people in the face, in the head.”

“But you ever notice Antifa’s never there when we have a bikers rally….they’re never around, they’re always there when you have a single guy protesting in front of a school,” said Trump.

Trump then made reference to his administration’s move to withdraw federal funding from educational institutions that don’t allow free speech on campus.
