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.

WTH -> Rosie O’Donnell Claims There Are ‘Over 100,000’ Concentration Camps In America

Actress and left-wing activist Rosie O’Donnell made the stunning claim that there are more than 100,000 concentration camps in states across the country, holding unaccompanied minors who illegally enter the U.S.

Appearing Monday on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live After Show,” Rosie O’Donnell was asked about the role she’s playing in Lights for Liberty, a rally being held July 12th to demand and end to what host Andy Cohan called “detention camps.”

“Yeah, the concentration camps, even though there’s lots of controversy about the word. But actually, legitimate scholars who study genocide say, yes, these are, in fact, the criteria for concentration camps, they meet them. There are over 100,000 camps in nearly every state,” O’Donnell said, failing to cite the scholars she mentioned. “There’s between 10,000 and 13,000 children, that could fill Radio City Music Hall twice. That’s how many children unaccompanied alone in these camps.”

O’Donnell, of course, was echoing fellow far-left figures like New York freshman Congressman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has spent the last several weeks comparing the oft-overcrowded Border Patrol facilities currently holding thousands of unaccompanied minors who illegally entered the country with adults to contraction camps like the ones that executed Jews during the Holocaust. Indeed, that comparison was roundly rejected on Monday by the United States Holocaust Museum.

“The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum unequivocally rejects efforts to create analogies between the Holocaust and other events, whether historical or contemporary,” the organization said. “That position has repeatedly and unambiguously been made clear in the Museum’s official statement on the matter – a statement that is reiterated and reaffirmed now.”

It is worth noting that the policy of separating children from adults and holding them in separate facilities was expanded by Barack Obama. It was his administration that separated thousands of children from their parents as a way to deter illegal immigration.

Rosie O’Donnell Backs Elizabeth Warren’s 2020 Bid — ‘She Knows How to Handle That Baby in the White House’

Rosie O’Donnell said she is supporting Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary.

O’Donnell said, “Warren is my choice.”

She added, “We need a leader. We need a leader, and she’s been leading. Every time she opens her mouth, she gets more respect. Because she has plans for everything, she knows what she’s doing. And I think she knows how to handle that baby in the White House.”
