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.

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
