Luis Carlos Galán, a politician running for presidency, was extremely dissatisfied with the actions by the drug cartels in Colombia. Therefore, he started to fight the drug cartels. Despite Escobar’s success in politics, Galán, the head of the ‘Nuevo Liberalisimo’ party where Pablo wanted to be part of, did not want Escobar involved in his party. Galán named in his speech that he did not accept support from someone who cannot explain the origin of his fortune. Escobar also knew that if Galán would become the president, he and his cartel would be turned over to the USA and be brought to justice.

Nixon fought against the committee in an effort to keep his precious tapes out of the public eye. Nixon was eventually forced to turn over the tapes under a Supreme Court Order.

Nixon resigned from office on August 9th, 1974, making history as the first American president to resign from office.

One of the largest drug trafficking organizations of the 1980s, the Medellín Cartel is largely remembered for its violence towards the Colombian government in a malicious revolt against the Extradition Treaty. However, Pablo Escobar wasn’t seen as a villain by everyone in Colombia. Escobar understood the plight of the poor in Colombia first hand; as a young boy, Escobar’s family was forced to file for bankruptcy after a plague killed their entire herd of cattle. Escobar’s sympathies for the Colombian poor sprouted from his childhood, and later as a drug trafficker, Escobar used his power and wealth to provide more resources and opportunities for the poor than the Colombian government ever did, earning him the loyalty of the Colombian lower class. While Pablo Escobar’s death in 1993 marked the end of his power sway, the effects of his lifestyle continue to echo today.

The missionary honestly discussed his past, used honest statistics, and gave his speech to help Latin Americans.
On March 12, 1977 Romero “woke up” to the unstable and corrupt political entities when Father Rutilio was assassinated along with another man and child. The reason for his murder, performed by the military police, was due to the accusation of being a communist (which is false). Wealthy members of in El Salvador were abusing and misusing the money, their political influence, weapons, and the immense power they held. Prior to Father Grande’s assassination, Romero believed that there was no corruption, and that the Church should remain neutral in matters concerning politics. Hill states, “He may have hoped that the violence and oppression was coming from mavericks and renegades, whom the government would eventually bring under control...Grande had been cut down along with two innocent people by the military police” (Hill 168-9).
"Honest Abe" is not all that Americans think. Sources state that Abraham Lincoln was assassinated because of the money he printed debt-free ("Whiteout Press"). But the real reason John Wilkes Booth assassinated Abraham Lincoln was because Lincoln suspended writ of habeas corpus, arrested people that spoke out against him and oversaw concentration two camps. Abraham Lincoln 's assassination is directly correlated to him being a war criminal ("Southern Sentinel"). Firstly, Abraham Lincoln suspended writ of habeas corpus (any state that orders your arrest must justify your imprisonment before a judge) ("ListVerse").
Given his political ties to the directors of the Bank of England, the public looked to him to help persuade the bank to help in a time of need. As historian John Francis mentioned, the Bank of England was originally built to help Parliament in times of financial need. However, many did not appreciate the Bank of England when it indeed helped the country. Hesitant to get involved, the directors of the Bank of England needed to be persuaded to help in what they believed to be a lost cause. Moreover, the South Sea Company did the Bank of England zero favors when it beat the bank out for the rights to finance the public debt in the early part of
President Carter was initially trusted by the public because he was considered an outsider in a political sense. He was a peanut farmer instead a crook, businessman on Wall Street. The American public tended to disagree with Carter’s foreign politics, such as handing over control of the Panama Canal to a dictator, and ending the Russian wheat deal to establish trade with the U.S.S.R. But the foreign event that made Carter look the weakest was his handling of the Iran Hostage Crisis where 52 American embassy officials were held hostage and tortured for 444 days in Tehran (History.com). Carter had first allowed a shah to seek medical attention in the U.S. after previously being banned from coming, after the shah was in America, Iranian students attacked the embassy and took hostages.
The most common source of this attention due to media and politicians who see this issue as an epidemic to the economy due to their belief that these immigrants are taking jobs from American citizens. Take Donald Trump, who is advocating the construction of a wall on the border between Mexico and the United States to keep immigrates out. The underlying cause for the thinking process of these politicians as well as the public in general is racism. As it may very well be the case that the Immigration Agents that stormed the Mejia’s house were tipped off by some who rather the family not be in the United States at
