She says that unfortunately Elvis had been found as a mole shortly into the time his mission began and he had to go into the FBI’s witness protection program. She claims that because he was discovered, he had to “kill” himself before the mafia killed him. To spur on the allegations, the FBI did not immediately swat down the theory, although there is no mention of Elvis helping the FBI in any of the 760 released files on Elvis from 1956 to 1980. Elvis was never officially investigated by the FBI, they say he only has a folder because of many extortion attempts made against him. In a FBI memo, though, it is recorded Elvis stating that he was willing to aid the FBI and offered his services in any way needed

In order to hide the incriminating evidence, Nixon compulsively lied throughout the whole predicament to the press and to the people of America-even the government. Eventually, Nixon handed over the tapes as commanded by the US Supreme Court. Suspiciously, eight and a half minute of a recording was missing, potentially making it impossible to uncover all of the evidence. This was the tragedy of the Watergate Scandal. One of the tapes, called “Smoking Gun” confirms Nixon had yielded justice.
Political Representation in The Crucible Arthur Miller, the author, wrote The Crucible in 1952 during the Red Scare, an investigation into Communist spies in the U.S. Government. A result of the Cold War with the Soviet Union, numerous citizens, including Miller, were interrogated for being accused of association with the Communist party by Senator Joseph McCarthy.

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
It’s no surprise that the government keeps secrets away from the American people, right? What if I told you that one of those secrets led up to over 190,000 deaths of fairly if not completely innocent people? Because that is exactly what happened as a result of the Manhattan Project. The Manhattan project was a huge research conducted by scientists and physicists alike to create what would soon be the world’s first atomic bomb. Not only one of the world’s first atomic bombs, but definitely a huge turning point in history, causing bucketloads of death and destruction.

During the Hollywood Blacklist, 10 Screenwriters, actors, directors, etc, did not confess to being communist so they were arrested.
