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.

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
