BUSTED TWO STARS! - RON LEWIS, ONCE TOP
© 2017 MilitaryCorruption.com
Once he was on top of the world. The onetime street kid from Chicago, Obama pal, and assistant to former Defense Secretary Ash Carter, has now been retired in disgrace. GEN Ron Lewis goes out the back door with two stars less on his uniform shoulders.
The high-flying Army helicopter boss and politically-correct sure shot for a fourth star and possibly Army chief-of-staff under a President Hillary Clinton, has been busted back to brigadier general and will lose at least $20,000 off his annual retirement pension.
It wasn't that long ago that Carter thought stone-walling the lap-dog mainstream media might save his pet after the defense secretary had to remove him as his chief assistant. However, too many people - including our C.I.'s - knew about Lewis boozing and running up big tabs on his government credit card in strip clubs from Italy to Korea.
Yes, MilitaryCorruption.com (see Related Stories below) refused to be muzzled, and when we got hold of and published a photo of his alleged blonde playmate at the Pentagon, the general's fate was finally sealed.
WE GOT STORY "RIGHT" FROM THE START
An unusually brief news release from Army flaks admitted that Lewis "made false statements" about his credit card usage and engaged in conduct "unbecoming an officer." In a quaint twist of words, the PAO shop admitted Carter's protege "drank to excess" and had "improper interactions" with women.
"Interactions? I thought it was called intercourse," a sergeant major and MCC informant at the Pentagon told us.
Congratulations are pouring in to our office from readers around the world who remember our hard-hitting coverage of this case while the sycophantic mainstream media tip-toed around the edges, afraid to be called "racist" or "politically incorrect."
WE HELPED KEEP FLAG OFFICER'S
In 2015 we quoted Secretary Carter saying: "I expect the highest possible standards from our people . . . there is no exception." To that we wrote: "Translation - Lewis is in so much trouble, even his doting boss can't save him."
Also, MCC was the first media outlet to accurately predict who would win the White House in the 2016 election: When the establishment was writing off Donald Trump as fated to fail in his quest for the GOP nomination, and later in the November election against their favored candidate, Hillary Clinton, we got it right from the start. Here's what we said . . .
Lewis, a West Point graduate, was allegedly brought low by a onetime gal-pal who decided if he dumped her, she'd make sure his high-flying Army career would crash and burn. It was too much for even the special crew of Pentagon cover-up artists to conceal. We won't use her name here, but hope she accepts a heartfelt "thank you" and salute from the ink-strained wretches at MilitaryCorruption.com who have toiled around the clock (since July 2000) to "fight for the truth . . . and expose the corrupt."
