In my paper, I will analyse Donald Trump’s political activities before and after the election to get an objective viewpoint of America’s President. We’ll start off with the history of Trump, both personal and political, to see whether there was some sort of significant development over the years indicating a tendency towards ‘good or evil’. Next, we will take a look at what Donald Trump promised to do – the wall, lowering taxes and repealing Obamacare to name a few – and evaluate if he managed to keep his election pledges. This success rate is a major factor in definitively assessing Trump’s influence on America. Lastly, using three major topics, we’ll gage how the President handled new events in the country, regarding the measures he took to counteract threats and his public statements which indicate if things important to the public are also important to Trump.
Rhetorical Analysis of Obama’s Victory Speech Barack Obama was re-elected as the president of the US on November 6, 2012 from Chicago, Illinois. This paper will throw light and analyse various elements Barrack Obama is using to portray his political ideology to audiences through his speech. I intend to focus on the rhetorical effects of the speech. By using various form of rhetorical tools such as Tautology or Anaphora, President Obama gives a speech which focuses on the idea of American life such as the American dream, American promise and the future. His speech is similar to the one he gave in 2008 and contains repetition and conveys his political views.

A Rhetoric Analysis of Metaphors used in the Speeches examines the emergence of morality in the Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s electoral speeches. It attempts to uncover underlying discursive literal and metaphorical structures in her presidential campaign discourse. The researcher’s goal is to verify whether or not Hillary Clinton introduces herself as a progressive leader who embraces all nurturing moral values that are assumed by Lakoff (2004). The abstract nature of values such as care, fairness, health care, education and the like necessitates the use of literality and metaphors which provide an incite for their conceptualization. On the one hand, the investigation is based on a semantic point of view that relies on an application of Lakoff’s (1996) Family based models of political morality which include the Nurturing Parent and the Strict Father models.
The essay provided an outline on each theory before going on to explain the theory’s view on what causes wars. After I evaluated and juxtaposed, it led me to the conclusion that even though there are changing and opposite explanations to answer the question of what causes wars, realism provided the most relevant answer. It seems as if the balance of threat against a potential hegemony has been the most relevant answer as to what causes wars. I can also conclude from this that because states are the primary actors in international relations they will seek to expand their power because they believe it is an essential element in an anarchical
George Sorel 's radical political philosophy can be characterized as deeply controversial not only because of its exact content, but also because of its historical role. On the one hand, his most famous book, Reflections on Violence, is a canonical text for the anarcho-syndicalist tradition. On the other hand, it was embraced by the fascist politics, for instance, by Mussolini. One of the most nuanced receptions of Reflections on Violence can be seen in 'Critique of Violence ', a remarkable essay by Walter Benjamin which he wrote in 1920. In this essay, Benjamin critically assesses the whole historical structure of the law by applying the explicitly Sorelian ideas of violence and the general proletarian strike.
There are three ideal objectives put in place to help put into perspective the true priorities when it comes to foreign relations. The first is national security which has been the number one priority because of the attacks that have continuously taken place on American soil mainly by the means of terrorist threats. The rise of the current ISIS movement has caused even more pressure on the presidency to identify that it is a viable threat to our nation and that protective measures need to be implemented as soon as possible to combat potential future threats. The next major objective of our president when it comes to foreign affairs is building and maintaining a peaceful global structure. This is key when it comes to forming and building alliances around the world.
All the societies that Gulliver discovers are used as a comparison to British society of the time period throughout the novel. The comments this reading makes on the British society of the particular time period is that it is violent, greedy, and savage. To Begin, One of the comments made on British society was that the people are violent. This is shown through the conversation between the king of Brobdingnag and Gulliver, when Gulliver informs him about Britain’s history of war and offers him gunpowder as a polite gesture. Gulliver giving the king gunpowder, a weapon of war, as a polite gesture proves he is accustomed to the British way of violence and fighting.
Abstract As van Dijk said in 1998, Critical Discourse Analysis basically concerns itself with the study, dissection and thorough analysis of words in texts. Those words may either be written or spoken. The main idea behind this is to out the blatant truth about power, dominance, inequality and bias. Furthermore, it helps to investigate these sources and determine the ways in which the texts are misinterpreted on social, political and historical levels. This paper studies the influential tactics of the President of United Sates’ (Obama) community discourse other than the hidden thought of the same, preserved in his inaugural discourse.
