President Bill Clinton and his 2 term Attorney General Janet Reno​

Janet Reno made history as the second longest serving Attorney General in US history after William Wirt. She served as AG for President Bill Clinton's Administration both terms. She was the first woman to serve as Attorney General in US history according to Wikipedia sources:
Janet Reno - Wikipedia

Reno was despised by many for her role as the infamous prosecutor who ordered the six year old Elian Gonzalaz to be taken from his mother's relatives in Florida where he resided and returned to his father in Cuba. Elian's mother Elizabeth Broton Rodriguez drowned while trying to escape Cuba with him. Reno sided with Cuban authorities and ordered the boy to be returned to his father in communist controlled Cuba. The story touched the hearts of millions of Americans who witnessed a mother's dream of freedom for her child go up in smoke after the child was taken by federal agents at gunpoint.


The scene of armed federal agents pointing a weapon at the six year old hiding in a closet with a relative was a memory forever etched in the minds of Americans who considered Reno's toughness to have crossed the line in the Gonzalez case. After the case made international news, the Clinton's decided to appoint Reno as their Attorney General.

Her first assignment as Attorney General for the Clinton Administration led to an even greater firestorm of controversy over yet another demonstration of her bad judgment. 12 days after being sworn in, Janet Reno took charge of and ordered the arrest of the Branch Davidians which led to a 51 day stand off, culminating in the deaths of 80 people including 24 children who perished in the fire at Waco, Texas.



The nation watched the scene in horror as the compound in Waco, Texas came under attack by ATF agents and went up in flames. Many Americans disagreed with how Janet Reno and the Clinton Administration handled Waco. Twenty years later the Daily Mail commemorated the tragedy with the headline "Disastrous raid on Branch Davidians."

The Daily Mail reported:
The incident cast an international spotlight on Waco and Central Texas, as well as the ATF, which was criticized in a later government review for not calling off the raid after sect members found out about it.

Reno later took full responsibility for the disastrous raid at Waco and said that she regretted her decision to storm the compound which led to the deaths of 80 people including children.

Janet Reno also led the investigation and subsequent raid of the Montana Freeman.
Montana Freeman Wikipedia story:

The Montana Freemen were an anti-government Christian Patriot movement group based outside the town of Jordan, Montana. The members of the group referred to their land as "Justus Township" and had declared themselves no longer under the authority of any outside government. They became the center of public attention in 1996 when they engaged in a prolonged armed standoff with agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Montana Freemen - Wikipedia

21 people were arrested after an 81 day standoff in which Reno managed to avoid another Waco disaster. No casualties were reported in the 1996 standoff.

In 2002 Janet Reno decided to run for Governor of Florida. She endorsed the rights of homosexuals to adopt children while on the campaign trail. She was defeated in the primary by Democrat Candidate Bill McBride.

World Net Daily Reports:

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Former Attorney General Janet Reno told an enthusiastic crowd of homosexuals what they wanted to hear yesterday, as the gubernatorial candidate promised help in overturning Florida’s ban on homosexual adoptions.

“If you can be gay and be a foster parent, if you can be gay and be a guardian, if you can be a perfectly wonderful parent to a child who’s unadoptable and in so doing make them adoptable, you ought to be able to adopt them,” Reno declared in reference to an effort to overturn Florida’s ban on homosexual adoptions.

Making a campaign stop at a luncheon sponsored by GayLauderdale.com and Embassy Suites Hotel, the Democrat also pleased the audience with her vow to “support in every way possible” efforts to resist the repeal of the portion of the Miami-Dade County Human Rights Ordinance that protects residents and visitors against discrimination based on sexual orientation. The proposed repeal is a ballot measure that goes before voters in September.

“Janet has a special place in the gay community,” GayLauderdale.com President Monte Guthrie told World Net Daily News.

The death of Janet Reno was announced today but according to another news report her niece didn't announce the news of her death to NBC until later. She was surrounded by family members in her final days and died from complications connected to Parkinson's disease. The timing of the news comes a day after the shocking announcement by FBI Director Comey to clear Mrs. Clinton of any wrong doing connected to the original email - server investigation.

Okay- Any custody court in the country would have awarded custody of Elian to his father.

And four investigations determined the Davidians committed mass suicide.
Not necessarily. The best interest of the child should have been considered first. The American people were in favor of the boys rights to stay in America.

The truth about Waco is that if any other Attorney General under a Republican President had admitted responsibility (Janet Reno publicly admitted it and took full responsibility) for storming Waco Compound and mass murdering 80 people including 24 children - they would have been immediately removed from office. That didn't happen because she was working for the Clinton's.

It would be wise for the American people to remember how Janet Reno handled Waco, the targeting of Christians such as the Montana Freeman case, Oklahoma City bombing investigation and so forth.

That was under Bill Clinton's administration. Can you imagine what Hillary's would be like? God save us from such a day!

Dear JoeB131 I know a minister in Houston with experience counseling "apocalyptic Christians" who had been on the scene asking to negotiate with the Davidians and their leaders. He was denied access at that point because of security issues that already went too far in the wrong direction. He was able to counsel the surviving members but too late to save the larger group from violent destruction and death.

had this been set up correctly, nobody needed to die. it was not handled properly.

And neither are immigration policies that split families and cost taxpayers for lack of accountability,
enforcement, deterrence of violations and RESTITUTION for crimes and trafficking:
http://www.earnedamnesty.org It will take all sectors to team up to solve the border issues.
Trump as an independent business man is more able to cross over barriers to work out such
collaborative solutions. Clinton can't even go after crooks if she uses the law to hide her own party's collusions.

Does anyone remember this famous speech by Bill Clinton in which he reminds the American people that while he was president, his wife Hillary Clinton having conversations with the dead - Mrs. Roosevelt? The story is famous in Bob Woodward's book about Hillary Clinton talking to dead people.

Mrs. Clinton should contact Janet Reno and ask her about the temperature where she is so she can make an informed decision as to whether or not she wants to join her there in the future.

yeah they didnt need to die but the clintons same as the Bushs take pleasure in the sufferering and murdering of others so in their minds of course all those children DID have to die a horrible death no less.

some of the suvivors said there were people coming out saying dont shoot,yet the ATF mowed them down and of course they did not get any punishment for their deeds,they got rewarded to no surprise.The clintons were probably the ones that encouraged the agency to reward them for their actions no less.

I wonder if they waited a day or two knowing that FBI Director Comey's announcement of Hillary being cleared from all wrong doing had to take center stage MSM news yesterday. Today was a more convenient time for Mrs. Clinton. We'll know when we see Reno's tombstone.

I found it odd that a niece described family members surrounding Reno at her death bed for days and "later on" contacting NBC to inform them. It wouldn't surprise me. I certainly won't be depending on Google to reveal the truth about it.

Reno's order to storm Waco compound and mass murder 80 people including 24 children didn't happen without Clinton's approval. Bill and Hillary Clinton have a special hatred for Christians. We know this.

Wikileaks emails uncovered a discussion in which they were openly hostile to Catholics - it's already out there and if anyone thinks that Hillary Clinton's administration will not go after Christians with a vengeance is dangerously naive about who Hillary Clinton is.

RIP Janet Reno. This is misleading ca-ca. I'm fine with Janet Reno and mourn her loss. She was truly independent than the feces that is Loretta Lynch appointed by the worst POTUS ever, Barack Obama. Bill Clinton learned from what happened with Janet Reno and taught Obama his dirty tricks.

I'm sure Janet Reno would've prosecuted Hillary Clinton back in July.

"Ms. Reno brought a fierce independence to her job. From the FBI siege of the Branch Davidian compound in Texas to the investigation into Clinton’s sexual relationship with intern Monica Lewinsky, she was adamant that her prosecutors and agents work outside the influence of politics, media or popular opinion.

Her supporters believed she brought a heightened level of integrity and professionalism to the attorney general’s office. They admired her insistence on legal exactitude from her employees and praised her caution in prosecutions.

Ms. Reno resisted weeks of pressure to arrest Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, waiting until she thought agents had sufficient legal justification to tie him to the 1993 World Trade Center bombings. He was later convicted.



On Feb. 12, 1993, President Clinton named Janet Reno the nation's first female attorney general. (Doug Mills/AP)
“She was a very powerful force for lawfulness,” said Walter E. Dellinger III, a Duke University law professor who served as solicitor general during Ms. Reno’s tenure. “She was always challenging to make sure there was a sound legal basis for what people were doing. And she was adamant about separating the department from politics.

Business leaders criticized her lengthy prosecution of Microsoft on charges of anti-competitive violations — a case that ultimately ended in a settlement under the George W. Bush administration.

Civil libertarians took Ms. Reno to task for her handling of the espionage case against former Los Alamos National Laboratory scientist Wen Ho Lee, who was held in solitary confinement for nine months after being charged with mishandling nuclear secrets, only to be released on a lesser charge. Even Clinton said he was troubled by the case; Ms. Reno refused to apologize.

Republicans criticized her bitterly for pandering to the Clinton White House — she refused, for instance, to launch an independent investigation into whether Vice President Al Gore illegally fundraised from the White House during the 1996 Clinton-Gore reelection campaign. Democrats, meanwhile, disparaged her for abandoning her political patrons. Ms. Reno said first lady Hillary Clinton never forgave her for authorizing an investigation into the Lewinsky affair."

Lies, Lies and more lies! You've just quoted a story from Washington Post owned by Jeff Bezos who is the Amazon CEO friend and partner of Hillary Clinton! That's mainstream media! Do you realize that? The same Jeff Bezos who wouldn't permit Bob Woodward to do an investigative report on Hillary Clinton's email server scandal in order to protect his candidate Hillary Clinton! You can bet that this hogwash article of "revisionism" on Reno was pre-approved by the Clinton - Podesta camp before it ever went online. Are you really that naive?

MSM such as Washington Post have been writing lies for Clinton camp and have lost ALL credibility or haven't you been paying attention?
James Bond you are not! Don't quit your day job, Bub!

The same "what" that Democrats have given to Mexican children to remain in the USA AND to allow their parents to enter / remain in the country in order to stay with them (if they so wish). All illegal but hey! When it is the Democrats needing votes this is the humane thing to do. But when it is a Cuban refugee child whose mother died in the process of getting him here and his father is a communist living in Cuba - send him back!

Can you say hypocrites or should I say it for you?

1) Not true. Polls taken at the time backed Ms. Reno's position.
Majority of Americans Back Reno's Retrieval of Elian Gonzalez

2) We don't enforce laws by polls. Legally, his father was the next of kin. Barring some kind of evidence he was abusive, there wasn't an issue here legally.

The truth about Waco is that if any other Attorney General under a Republican President had admitted responsibility (Janet Reno publicly admitted it and took full responsibility) for storming Waco Compound and mass murdering 80 people including 24 children - they would have been immediately removed from office.

No, it didn't happen because the Davidians killed themselves, as three investigations found.

You mean she arrested people who committed crimes? Um, that's kind of in her job description.

Still better than a guy like Trump who says he'll use the legal system to punish his enemies.

The Clinton's were in the White House when Elian Gonzales was taken. What did you expect MSM to write? Of course they lied, used fixed polling and told the story the Clinton's wanted out there, Joe. Just like they are doing right now. Just like old times for the Clinton's and their MSM, isn't it? The media have been a liberal bunch for decades. No surprise that they lie through their teeth. So does Hillary Clinton. Birds of a feather...

Note that is a CNN poll. Clinton News Network, Inc. You must be kidding me, Joe.

Actually, most people I talked to at the time, you know, sane people who weren't upset that Castro spanked us in 1960, thought sending him back was the right thing.

Again, his father had legal rights, baring any evidence of abuse or unfitness, which there was none.

Also, I get a little sick and tired of America kow-towing the Cuban American community.
