BREAKING: Biden White House Embroiled In New Coverup Scandal


The Biden White House finds itself at the center of a scandal involving the California National Guard. At the center of the dispute is an investigation into Col. Lisa Nemeth, a high-ranking officer accused of multiple misconducts, including mishandling a drunk-driving incident and allowing her pet Dalmatian to disrupt military operations.

The investigation into Col. Nemeth began when reports surfaced about her dog making a mess in a military building, and more seriously, her handling of another high-ranking officer’s drunk-driving crash. The investigation, led by the California guard’s inspectors general, concluded that Nemeth had engaged in conduct unbecoming an officer, a judgment that was initially made behind closed doors in 2022.

“Inspectors general for the California guard conducted more than three dozen confidential interviews and pored over financial records and other documents. They came to a clear conclusion: Col. Lisa Nemeth, the target of the probe, had engaged in conduct unbecoming an officer,” the Los Angeles Times reported.

The conclusion jeopardized Nemeth’s planned promotion to general, a promotion that was still in the works despite the serious allegations against her. The investigation included extensive documentation and confidential interviews that painted a troubling picture of Nemeth’s behavior. However, the situation took a turn with a phone call from the Pentagon, causing allegations of a coverup that reaches into the highest echelons of the military.

“Then came an extraordinary telephone call from the Pentagon — one that ignited a seething cold war between the California Military Department, which is the parent organization of the guard, and both the National Guard Bureau, headquartered in Arlington, Va., and the Air Force,” according to the Times.

The call was from then-Lt. Gen. Michael Loh, director of the Air National Guard. Loh asked Maj. Gen. David Baldwin, the head of the California Military Department at the time, to dismiss the findings against Nemeth and to bring in an outsider to redo the investigation. Loh suggested that a woman should conduct the new inquiry, despite the fact that the original principal investigator was already a woman.

“Loh went on to ask Baldwin to throw out the findings against Nemeth and bring in an outsider to redo the investigation. Loh noted on the call that Nemeth was about to join his staff. He suggested the guard bring in a woman to conduct a new inquiry, although the principal investigator on the original case was a woman,” the Times revealed.

Maj. Gen. Baldwin refused Loh’s request, leading to escalating tensions. The situation boiled over when the Air Force inspector general overturned the California findings without further investigation, clearing Nemeth of any wrongdoing. The reversal, based on what California officials call “flimsy logic,” has incensed many within the California Guard.

“Eventually, they boiled over when the Washington, D.C.-based Air Force inspector general reversed the California findings with no further investigation and cleared Nemeth, according to internal records reviewed by The Times. The office has the authority to overrule decisions by state inspectors general, but California guard officials say that rarely happens,” the outlet reported.

The reaction from California Guard officials has been one of disbelief and frustration. Maj. Gen. Matthew Beevers, who succeeded Baldwin, expressed his outrage in a memo to Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David W. Allvin. “Quite frankly, it is perplexing to comprehend how the Air Force IG summarily non-concurs with all four substantiated allegations, especially given the lack of any new evidence,” Beevers wrote in a scathing memo.

“This superficial dismissal of this substantiated allegation defies the basic precepts of good order in discipline in a military command while establishing a new, disturbing precedent.”

Beevers vented his disapproval of the Air Force Inspector General’s (IG) decision to overturn a California investigation’s findings against Col. Nemeth. The original investigation implicated Nemeth in misconduct, including using subordinates for personal tasks and mismanaging a critical firefighting program. Despite these serious allegations, the Air Force IG dismissed the evidence as insufficient, reversing the findings after a prolonged investigation exceeding two years.
