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.

CONFUSION:   Pelosi Says Constitution Spells Out ‘Two Co-Equal Branches’ Of Government

No Nancy. No.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi must be taking night classes at the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez School of Government.

Pelosi, the 79-year-old third-highest ranking official in the U.S. government, was speaking to the Center for American Progress today when she mistakenly said there are “two co-equal branches” of government, before correcting herself to say there are three.

Watch:

“First of all, let me just say, we take an oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” Pelosi said.

“Democrats take that oath seriously, and we are committed to honoring our oath of office. I’m not sure that our Republican colleagues share that commitment, and I’m not sure that the president of the United States does, too,” she claimed.

“So, in light of the fact that the beauty of the Constitution is a system of checks and balances— two co-equal branches— three co-equal branches of government,” she corrected with a laugh.

“A check and balance on each other,” she continued. “Con— Constitution spells out the pri— pa, uh, the duties of Congress and one of them is oversight of the president of the United States, another one of them is to impeach the president of the United States,” Pelosi said.

In November, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rallied supporters on Facebook to pitch in and help Democrats take back “all three chambers of Congress.”

“…the Progressive movement works and it wins in all districts…If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress– three chambers of government…,” she said during the virtual appearance.

She clarified that she meant the “presidency, the Senate and the House.”

According to the Constitution, the three branches of government are the legislative, executive and judicial.
