Skip to comments.3-star Navy admiral fired as deputy chief of nuclear command (military purge continues)

The deputy commander of U.S. nuclear forces, Vice Adm. Tim Giardina, was notified Wednesday that he has been relieved of duty amid a military investigation of allegations that he used counterfeit chips at an Iowa casino, the Navy said.
The move is exceedingly rare and perhaps unprecedented in the history of U.S. Strategic Command, which is responsible for all U.S. nuclear warfighting forces, including nuclear-armed submarines, bombers and land-based missiles.
The Navy's top spokesman, Rear Adm. John Kirby, said Giardina, who had held the job since December 2011, is being reassigned to the Navy staff pending the outcome of the probe by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, which originated as a local law enforcement investigating in Iowa in June.
As a consequence of being removed from his post at Strategic Command, Giardina falls in rank to two-star admiral. He had been suspended by Gen. Robert Kehler, the top commander at Strategic Command, on Sept. 3, although that move was not disclosed publicly until Sept. 28.

Or...was given counterfeit chips.
Every modern dictator has (Stalin, Hitler, Mao etc) purged their military leadership of people that didn’t agree with their policies.
If they demote him to his real rank, he’ll probably be a full commander or four-striper. In World War II he’d be commanding a POW camp in Mississippi or a supply depot in Utah.
Makes ya wonder.
It's been his goal since forever.
Early in the history of this BADministration multiple members o. His cabinet quoted Mao Tse-Tung.
Where are we headed...?
To become dictator, his goal since forever. Can’t do that with senior military people that would appose him.
what the hell does that mean “counterfeit chips”
This is more serious than disarmament.
This involves your head.
Does anyone else worry about the sudden increase in Homeland Security getting involved in local policing matters?
There have been several reports lately in the press.
A national police force is to be feared.
Most likely dressed in brown shirts.
Excuses getting a little thin........

TSA is moving in.
DHS is moving in.
One is Brownshirts, the other is the SS.
Wow, the difference between what he was doing in 1983, from what I was doing under Reagan in 1983, are amazing.

You and me.
According to WND about 135 senior officers have been purged.
Something serious is going down in the future.
