This time everyone’s favorite alleged sexual predator and former president Bill “BJ” Clinton just couldn’t keep his big mouth shut on social media. So he decided it would be a good idea to attack President Trump today, on Father’s Day by tweeting out a condemnation about President Trump’s efforts to uphold the rule of law and our nation’s sovereignty.
And then the rest of the sickos in the Clinton family added to the condemnation.On this Father’s Day I’m thinking of the thousands of children separated from their parents at the border. These children should not be a negotiating tool. And reuniting them with their families would reaffirm America’s belief in & support for all parents who love their children.— Bill Clinton (@BillClinton) June 17, 2018
On #FathersDay & every day, I could not imagine a better dad for Charlotte & Aidan than Marc. I also could not imagine being forcibly separated from my children as I sought sanctuary. No parent, no person should support this: https://t.co/uUNs6yFklD— Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) June 17, 2018
But what’s perhaps even more interesting is how Bill Clinton seems to have an issue with the rule of law now but had no issue whatsoever when he sent in armed troops to remove Elian Gonzales from his family’s home back in 2000.
Here is a chronology of the Elian Gonzalez saga via PBS:
“November 25 1999
A five-year-old Cuban boy, Elian Gonzalez, is found on Thanksgiving Day clinging to an inner tube three miles off the coast of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Fishermen rescue him and he is taken to a hospital for treatment. But his mother and 11 others on the raft had drowned in their attempt to come to the U.S. from Cuba.
November 26 1999
Elian is released from the hospital into the custody of his uncle, Lazaro Gonzalez, and other relatives in Miami. The Cuban government sends a note to the U.S. mission in Havana requesting Elian’s return to Cuba.
November 28 1999
Juan Miguel Gonzalez, Elian’s father, files a complaint with the UN to get attention for his custody demands.
November 29 1999
The U.S. State Department recuses itself from considering the custody of Elian. It is left up to the Florida courts.
December 10 1999
Attorneys for Elian’s relatives in Miami file a request for his political asylum.
January 5 2000
INS Commissioner Doris Meissner announces a decision that Elian’s father in Cuba is responsible for his custody, and that arrangements will be made to return Elian to Cuba by January 14.
January 7 2000
Elian’s relatives in Miami file suit in state family court to have Lazaro Gonzalez declared the boy’s guardian.
January 10 2000
A Circuit Court judge grants emergency custody of Elian to Lazaro Gonzalez.
January 12 2000
Attorney General Janet Reno rejects the family court jurisdiction, tells the Gonzalez family it must file in federal court and she lifts the January 14 deadline to return Elian to his father in Cuba.
January 28 2000
The U.S. government asks the judge to dismiss Miami relatives’ federal lawsuit.
March 9 2000
U.S. District Judge dismisses political asylum lawsuit.
March 30 2000
Vice President Al Gore, the Democratic candidate for President, says he supports legislation that would allow Elian to remain in the U.S. while the lawsuit is resolved in family court.
April 3 2000
The U.S. State Department approves visas for Juan Miguel Gonzalez and other close relatives to come to the U.S.
April 6 2000
Juan Miguel Gonzalez arrives in the U.S.
April 7 2000
After meeting with Juan Miguel Gonzalez, Attorney General Janet Reno announces that U.S. officials will move to transfer Elian to his father.
April 12 2000
Reno meets with Elian’s relatives in Miami about the process for transferring the boy to his father, but there’s no agreement from the relatives. Over the next several days negotiations continue between the family, Reno and representatives on both sides.
April 19 2000
The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals grants a request by Elian’s Miami relatives to block his return to Cuba.
April 22 2000
In a pre-dawn raid, armed U.S. federal agents seize Elian Gonzalez from the home of his Miami relatives. Elian is reunited with his father a few hours later. But it will take two months before Eilan and his father would go back to Cuba–two months of court procedures and demonstrations and counter-demonstrations in Miami.
June 1 2000
A federal appeals court upholds the U.S. government’s authority to deny Elian a political asylum hearing.
June 28 2000
Elian Gonzales and his father, stepmother and half-brother arrive in Cuba to a jubilant reception. Their return comes just hours after the U.S. Supreme Court rejects a last-ditch effort by the Miami relatives to keep him in the U.S.”
Yup, those of us who can remember those days will never forget the moment we say “Breaking News” and the picture of that armed troop pointing that A***5 at Elian and the fisherman who found him as they were hiding in the closet in order to save him from being deported to the communist hell that is the island of Cuba.
Back then people like the Clinton Gang had no issue with separating children from their families. And oddly enough no issue with anyone pointing an A***5 at a young child. Interesting, don’t you agree?
It’s really a shame that the American public has such short memories.
