In the last years there have been debates from people about many scandals that have been caused by the action from government from all over the world. It isn't a secret that for the example the government of the United States of America its hiding things that all the people of the planet needs to know, but the most grave thing it´s that some organizations inside this country, secretly has been accessing the mails of American people illegally without the approval of a martial court. This illegal actions of the NSA, CIA and the GCHQ have been revealed by a guy called Edward Snowden that was a former contractor for the National Security Agency (NSA) and also an ex-employee of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). The government of the United States accuses him to reveal classified files of this two agencies, and because he was actually working on both. In the side of the CIA and the NSA, I think that they are doing this things for the national security but also that's illegal to do it without the order of an approval of a martial court, thing that they don´t have.

Currently, there is no evidence connecting Russia with President Trump. Another modern yet older witch hunt was the one against Hillary and Holder. The cause of Hillary’s cause was mostly because of her EMail scandal in which she used a private email for sending government information. Even though both Trump and Hillary have been witch hunted for different reasons they have all been towards fear of
The damage is done and he did it out of selfishness the people he swore to protect are more endangered than ever (Couric)23. The information leaked was not even close to how much was taken and the government fears that there may be more that could be leaked to unwanted people the enemy of the United States (Ray)24. The Evidence is there, why he did or thought it was right the reasons to which he was thinking would make the united states more safe. The problems it caused the information he still has all play a factor. Is Edward Jay Snowden reliable or is he a spy?
After a night of drugs, drinking and toy boy debauchery, wealthy cougar Eloise Henderson and her new found young boyfriend get their heads bashed in. Sarah’s boss Chief Delaney is among the first on the scene after the station receives a call from neighbors that heard the commotion coming from the Henderson house. The Chief makes Sarah lead detective in the double homicide. Almost immediately, Sarah’s suspicions settle on Roger, a major property developer that had been until recently been involved with Eloise. Unfortunately, for Sarah, Roger has a watertight alibi – he had spent the entire nigh in Phoenix with an escort and there is nothing to suggest that the ding on his vehicle, which he got on the way back, is anything but genuine.
On January 6, 2011, the internat activist Aaron Swartz was arrested for downloading approximately 4.8 million journal articles from Jstor. He wanted to make the content available for everybody and for free. He commited suicide under the pressure of a potential jail sentence of 35 years. This case shows that academic knowledge is not for free; furthermore, it gives an idea how difficult it is for a freely available plattform like Wikipedia to provide good quality knowledge of academic standards. In her article In Defense of Wikipedia, Diane Murley argues that the academia has cause to revise its opinion on Wikipedia as a scholarly tool.
During world war ||, after the pearl harbor attack, the U.S. took about 120,000 Japanese people into internment camps because they believed that anyone of them could be a spy. President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066, which allowed the military to circumvent the constitutional safeguard of American citizens in the name of the national defense. These camps were not a place of leisure, but were a place of imprisonment. After being in the camps for about four years, some families never found eachother again due to death or they didn’t have enough resources to locate them again and some were brought back together many years after being released. In the poem “internment” by Juliet S Kono the author uses diction, irony, and simile to show h that even in the darkest
Recent discoveries show, “Of 134 jihadist-inspired terrorists who have carried out or plotted attacks here since 9/11, 96 were U.S. citizens” (Jenkins). In the United States there has been a serious rise in domestic terrorism, however the government refuses to acknowledge it. Instead their focus has been abroad, rightly so in some cases, while more domestic attacks make headline news. The change in visa laws does nothing, because since 9/11 86% of the terror attacks have been plotted or carried out by American citizens. Therefore, the United States needs to step up its efforts to combat domestic terrorism because the jail time is too short for current terrorists, there are no true task forces for current attacks, and there has been an increase of these groups and attacks.
Without being provided with clear answers, many people decided to take the matter into their own hands and seek the truth for themselves, causing the development of the infamous JFK conspiracy theories. The theory claims more people conspired than just Oswald, and the “magic bullet” government investigators used to explain the strike on Kennedy and Governor Connally is impossible. According to a poll conducted by FiveThirtyEight.com, 61% of 5,130 Americans
The FBI investigated but the final charges did not go as expected because they lack evidence.. There had been some efforts to hide facts of Watergate tapping: documents were destroyed, staffs were under pressure to stay away from press, staffs were persuaded to give certain answers to FBI, and staffs possessed critical information were promoted after Watergate. President Richard Nixon assured the public that the White House had no involvement with this particular incident. His use of the words “particular incident” led the reporters to look further into their investigation. Woodward and Bernstein uncovered indecent campaign strategies to undercut the Democratic Party by using unlawful methods such as threats, phone tapping and spying.
The National Security Agency has been keeping many people out of the dark for years about their policies. How can congress conduct their constitution oversight of the Executive branch if the agencies lie about what is going on? How can American voters make smart decisions if they are misinformed about its activities? As I discussed this issue with co- workers, some didn’t comprehend the importance of Snowden’s information. They all stated that we as American’s should not worry about the government looking into our business if we have nothing to hide.
These full body scanners, which Chertoff had a hand in getting into the airports, were “heavily criticized (and little tested)”, and were sold by a company which was a client of Chertoff’s consulting agency (Turley, 3). Another example is Dick Cheney. He was the CEO of Halliburton, a company associated with numerous U.S. war scandals, prior to holding the office of Vice-President. How telling is it that “the company (Halliburton) made $217,199 in campaign contributions in 2004, and in the same year was awarded $8 billion in military contracts” (Newton, 229). According to Turley, hundreds of billions of dollars annually go towards the cost of war, the taxpayers’ money flowing into the arms industry’s pocket, and those agencies and contractors are trying to keep it that way.
It was obvious that the tapes and papers Nixon would not release would implicate criminal wrongdoing by Nixon and his men. This case is a land mark for not letting the presidents power get out of hand or letting the president get away from prosecution just because he 's the
He believes that people deserve privacy so much that when he found out that the government was spying on the American public he ignored the chance of going to prison and released all of the details about how the government was spying on the public. Snowden demonstrated the same beliefs as those stated in “Blue’s Ain’t No Mockin Bird.” As Bambara demonstrated through the use of symbolism and metaphor, and as Marlon Brando stated, privacy should not be given to a select few, but rather should be given to
