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.

That is what this purge of senior officers is al about. He does not want any Flag Officers who will arrest him rather than follow an illegal order. He wants hand picked ones that will order their subordinates to carry it out.
I believe a lot of those will refuse. I pray it does not come to that.

We need to start The Organization of Officers Ditched by 0-bummer...the OOD0.

...or does it already exist....?

I will fight for Israel and the US America, the only free Nations left in the world. OMG we face all the nations of the world and we stand at arms ready. I thank GOD that I have him to lead the way. YES I am a CHRISTIAN with Jewish blood running thru my veins, No records are kept but I believe that the blood of DAVID runs thru my veins.
When I pray, I pray to the GOD of Israel, GOD of my fathers, Abraham, Issach and Jacob and I ask him to bless me as I bless his people. I tithe to the support of Israel and to all of GOD's children. A friend of mine just lost her daughter and I support her and the family with monies not because money is the answer but because she needs financial help and GOD directed me to.
I am ready to stand with arms against all enemies both foreign and domestic, as I have taken this oath for several times and I have never been told that I don't have too. England says god save the queen, I say GOD lead the way and I'll will stand firm

Gen Craig Franklin believes in the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights. He recognizes Obunghole for what he is.  Like the several hundred high ranking officers in the military that Obunghole sacked, this General will have to go also.

ref Mr. Higley: FEMAs Gulags (don't laugh)

Several years ago was out shopping with daughter and grand-daughter (as driver).

by accident ran into former lady co-worker (I'm retired, Computer Field),

she was deadly serious (I had not said a thing about it, my daughter knows my views)

told about concentration camps and the National Guard and recruiting. Her son

is/was in the NG and her father, a former Army Officer. She is very Religious

(I have nothing against civil acting Religions). The lady was very emotional about this.

Daughter heard it all, we were in my SUV, she standing next to it on sidewalk.

I have read "The Gulag Archipelago" books Alexander Sol______zen (sp?), think there were 

3 of them, I read one and half, that was enough. The whole country was a prison

camp, if a dissident spoke or wrote the wrong thing the whole family - grandmother

to child went to prison camp and got a "tenner" (10 yrs).  Check it out. The same people are over

here helping set them up. Read with a 3 strand razor wire truck, can set up camp in 24 hrs.

Also check your mail box, if a colored round sticker, red/blue/yellow, I had one.

Moved it, still got mail? Also videos are loaded with this stuff.

(contact me, can fill you in on this and others) Thanks.


    I certainly hope he and all the other purged military leaders join with General Vallely in his endeavors , ( sorry if I spelled the Generals name wrong ) .

The NRA has endorsed Texas Senator John Cornyn.  John Cornyn is a diehard RHINO, but the NRA endorsed him against his two challengers.  John Cornyn and Senator Lindsay Graham (South Carolina RHINO) are slated to introduce a Bill that will expand the list of citizens not allowed to own guns to include peaceful, low-abiding citizens who simply sough treatment at one time for a mental health issue.   Cornyn's bill is practically the same thing Bloomberg and Obama demanded last year as a gun control bill. 
As a conservative Texan, I'm working to make John Cornyn an "ex-Senator".  Cornyn's "Bloomberg Bill" could take away the gun rights of hundreds of thousands of citizens, including military veterans, simply because they went through post-combat counseling - taken without due process of law. 

We each have our burden/mission

Mine is Graham

Hey , he can join  Operation American Spring ( May16,2014) I'm sure they can use his help !

If that's the case the whole of government would have to step down for many infractions and a lot worse than this one. How many has Obama had killed?

As the Stalinesque purges of the establishment continues, anyone with a reasonable degree of intelligence should be alarmed at the brazenness of the criminal conspiracy aimed at the heart of the American Nation.  Military leaders should surely be awakened to the reality of who the enemy is.  It is time for every officer, NCO and enlisted man in the military service of the United States to take conference with their conscience and to choose whether they will serve the Nation and it's people, or if they will serve a malevolent subversive element that has hijacked our government.  The future of the nation depends much on the decisions made in the conscience of our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and their Commanders. They may well have within their power the ability to suppress the nation and lead us into a dark age from which we may never recover, or they may well be the saviors of the American nation from one of the worst tyrannies that the history of mankind has ever known.  Choose wisely. The fate of your people may well depend on your choices.

Hes purging all our top military personal and no one wants to sign up anymore moral is at a all time low under this communist Muslim idiot !! hes making us the weakest Nation on the planet were the laughing stock of the world now and am sure only because this great LT GEN, spoke out on Israel hes getting puched out this man a true American and you can tell he is tough as nails  and Obama forced him out !!! what an ass ! our leader of the free world is a sissy and the world knows it !!

Pelosi Disaster!  95% Of Americans Tuned Out Impeachment Show Trials On Friday — Only The Second Day Of Testimony

Despite the constant hype Americans are already tuning out the sham impeachment trials.

On the second day of the public show trials 95% of Americans turned off the nonsense.

Americans are worn out by all of the fake news and hysteria.

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

Heritage Action   Heritage_Action

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

IT Guy@ITGuy1959

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
