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

1 Billion Dollar Net Worth!!! Oberlin College Claims Poverty To Avoid Paying Punitive Damages To Gibson’s Bakery

Although IRS reports show the university is worth around $1 billion, Oberlin College still claimed poverty to avoid paying punitive damages to Gibson’s Bakery.

As Breitbart News reported this week, the far-left Oberlin College lost a defamation case filed by Gibson’s Bakery after a local jury found the university liable for falsely accusing the family bakery of racism.

The jury ordered Oberlin on Friday to pay Gibson’s $11.2 million in compensatory damages for defamation and intentional interference with a business.

Legal Insurrection reported on Thursday that “the jury awarded a total of $33 million in punitive damages, which will probably be reduced by the court to $22 million because of the state law cap at twice compensatory.”

Legal Insurrection has been following the case for two years — since the beginning — and reports that the school’s only defense against a sizable punitive award is to pretend it is poor, despite holding assets that amount to a billion — with a “b” — dollars and despite paying some of its staffers more than a half-million dollars a year:

Oberlin College was so hellbent on getting the message out that their cash liquidity was in such dire straits — as the eight-person jury was figuring out if they wish to add $22.4 million to the school’s legal verdict bill — that they brought out the school’s president, Carmen Twillie Ambar to the stand to tell that part the story.

“We’ve created deficits … and over the next ten years, if this continues, that is unsustainable and we will not exist,” Ambar told the jury. She even indicated the school’s grants — about $60 million a year from the school, and lots of students get those scholarships as only 10% of them pay the full $70,000 a year — were important to preserve as “the accessibility of education” was a key component of the school’s purpose.

However…

The college has more than $1 billion in funds and net assets according to the latest IRS 990 form, an endowment fund that had grown from $440 million to $887 million in the last 20 years, and because of its non-profit status, pays no taxes on any property it owns.

It also had 18 members of their administration making more than $100,00 a year. The president and chief financial officer of the school were both making more than $500,000 a year.

Grifters gonna grift…

The day after Donald Trump won the presidency, this nutball school apparently decided to take out its impotent woke-rage on this poor bakery, which has been part of the Oberlin community for more than a century.

It all started when three Oberlin students (who would later plead guilty in a plea deal) attempted to steal bottles of wine.

The proprietors caught the students and, while attempting to hold them until police arrived, were allegedly roughed up by the shoplifters. But because the students are black and the proprietors white — and with no respect for due process or facts — Oberlin staffers and students decided some vigilantism was in order and did everything in their considerable power to destroy this local bakery forever, to smite it off the map.

Classes were canceled so hundreds of students could protest in front of the small store while enjoying free food and drink, courtesy of the school. School staffers handed out fliers that basically described the family-owned bakery as the local branch of the KKK.

As a result, the bakery had to lay off almost all of its employees and barely avoided bankruptcy.

In the end, the three shoplifters said race had nothing to do with what happened.

For those of you interested in incurring $200,000 in debt before you even enter the workforce, it looks as though you can major in Mob Justice at Oberlin.
