Postl: No Due Process if CAP Setup Done Right

[Editor’s Note: We had a transcript prepared from screen captures that were sent to us with “black highlighter” on the names to protect both the innocent and others.]

[Redacted] Unofficial CAP Discussion Group

[RedactedX]: John Postl opened his mouth again, this time in the YKYICW group. He mentioned AuxBeacon which should be no-go in public.

[RedactedY]: I saw that. He’s only hurting us by driving more disgruntled rejects to turn all our dirt over to them. Smith seems to be beside himself with the escalation of bad news leaks. Ninness continues to self-destruct on cap-talk, but no-one will tell him to his face.

[RedactedZ]: RedactedB and I are not members there. What did Postl say?

[RedactedA]: I’m curious too.

[RedactedX]: See for yourself.

With a good 2B setup, no due process in Civil Air Patrol.

John Postl: I’ve handled about a half dozen [MARP appeals] then I chaired the MARP for years so I’m somewhat of a 2b expert. [Reversals] happen[s] but if we are doing it right at the 2b stage then the appeal won’t be successful. Also the criteria for appeals is limited.

[RedactedX]: Postl’s statement is a glaring confession on CAP’s attempts at the kangaroo court. Postl is also wrong or has deliberately misled the membership to elevate himself. The MARP reports show many termination reversals that exposed corrupt Civil Air Patrol commanders. I know that one of the former IG’s gave AuxB the idea to make that high profile on their site.

[RedactedB]: WTF is John Postl?

[RedactedX]: Lt Col John Postl is currently assigned to CAP’s National Headquarters as the Deputy Chief of the volunteer lawyer corps.

[RedactedZ]: This is ludicrous. The remaining CAP members are way too sloppy and impolitic to be this high profile.

[RedactedX]: Gossipy attention addicts. National needs to shut down these groups.

[RedactedY]: Doing that might appear as an admission or weakness regarding the molestation, drugs, aviation accidents and reprisals that have been reported. Smith is better off just removing Postl or even 2B’ing him to set an example.

[RedactedY]: Do you think it wise to encourage snot-nose Captains to fink on their commanders, especially given how bad the gene pool is for that duty position now?

[RedactedA]: Do you have a picture of Postl?

[RedactedX]: Sure do. See here.

[RedactedA]: Is that his son? I was looking for a pic in CAP uniform.

[RedactedX]: See my PM. Here is a pic in uniform.

[RedactedA]: Man, Kettel was dead wrong regarding how long this onslaught against us would last. They get dirt from all regions and wings, as if a GD reject union has formed or as if someone turned over the entire complaint database to them.

[RedactedB]: Who gave them the Civil Air Patrol corruption and FBI raid chapter from Allan Stein’s book? It stabs at Kettel, Campbell and Anderson from the grave.

[RedactedY]: Don’t know. Is Allan Stein dead? What’s the story with Darrin Ninness?

[RedactedX]: Ninness defected to the U.S. Army Cadet Corps and served as their Recruiting Officer, but came back to CAP after ACC collapsed from their failed military academy venture. Ninness worked with Skrabut before Skrabut “retired”. AuxB ran a video that the two of them made about CAP’s loss of membership.

[RedactedA]: It is embarrassing, AuxB content and images fill the search feeds now. They are getting more support under Smith, not less. Prison convictions, the NTSB linkage, the drugs found in pilot bodies after crashes, WTH?. They may have a field day with PCR/VC Carl Morrison when those details come out. We are losing the good and stuck with the bad and the ugly.

[RedactedY]: Ninness recently became frustrated with a captalk poster who suggested that Smith was becoming a new Pineda.

[RedactedB]: Thanks to Kettel, Smith looks more like a limp fish unable to recognize the end to which he is being led.

Later on Another CAP Social Media Group

[RedactedN]: Holy deleted comm, Batman. You need to see this.

[RedactedK]: Laughable that Postl would set himself up to be targeted by Smith that way.

[RedactedK]: Did you comment on the thread or like any of their comments?

[RedactedN]: No, never do. Do you think Postl has anything on Smith?

[RedactedK]: Not sure, doubt it. How many in that group?

[RedactedN]: Enough that they won’t know its me.

[RedactedK]: You have all of [redacted] and YKYICW saved since the beginning, right?

[RedactedN]: I do.

[RedactedK]: Can you scrub it and send? Be sure to include the cross over from their group to ours so that it makes sense. Thanx.

  1. The message with Postl and other things I am seeing here is that my son will encounter A LOT of non christian behavior in Civil Air Patrol.

    “Is there ever a point to appealing a membership termination? I’ve never seen it successfully done in any of the available MARP reports…”

    I know who made this comment to John Postl, it was Andrew Varnes and there are plenty of MARP reversals that have been published as required by regulations until some Civil Air Patrol commanders realized that they were exposing themselves.

    AuxBeacon has only a small fraction of these listed at the link below. There are a few more that I have saved at the second link.

    Also, the editors should add Carol Anne Grant’s NER reversal after the abuse of New Hampshire’s Lt Col Alger Conger, another child molester.

  3. WTF gives any of the [redacted] contributing here the right to go into the private bedrooms of Civil Air Patrol members?

    [Editor: Are you inebriated? These images were posted in the “You Know You are in CAP” When FB social media group and none of the photos were taken in a bedroom. The only bedroom photo on the site is here. ]

  4. If you suspect fraud, waste, abuse, or mismanagement of federal funds, FraudNet can help you report your concerns to the right people.

  5. Using CAP to promote an unrelated agenda, even in the unofficial social media groups, is very bad practice.

    Postl really screwed up here and drew further attention to the fact that 33% or more of member terminations had been reversed during the time running up to the Total Farce announcement. Some reversals were deliberately omitted from the required reporting. Corrupt CAP commanders have learned is to bury victim complaints while running setup operations against them so that they can stack charges as a way to ensure the 2B holds.

  7. Someone, either the AB editors or the original contributor, clipped out harsher CAP member comments in that thread in [redacted]. I’m talking about the opinion of [xxxxxx] that former Eagle Driver Mark Smith has been eased into the role of lipstick bitch for all the h[xxxxxxxxx]s in Civil Air Patrol.

    • Can you add this hilarious picture from the [redacted]CAP Memes site of Mark E. Smith?

        Mark Smith’s been making too many videos on recruiting and retention that imply the members are quitting in droves. It looks desperate against the backdrop of all the CAP parties and travel. Big turnoff.

  8. Puma was here.

  9. What happens in CAP, now stays forever on Aux Beacon.

  10. The Civil Air Patrol organization is now a third-rate circus with freak ringmasters with zero leadership talent. Check your email for more quotable notables.
