Some individuals believe that using the wilderness for drilling of oil purposes will solve the US and its dependency on foreign oil. Through this article, Democratic congressman Edward J. Markey, alongside Representative Nancy Johnson, discuss the reasons for which they want to save the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, or the ANWR, and other wilderness reserves from being developed on and industrialized. This wildlife reserve has been labeled as being one of the most magnificent reserves found in America. Unfortunately, people want to encroach on this territory and use it to increase the nation’s oil and gas development. This is not the first time that the reserve has been threatened but it is the most extreme.
Adlai Stevenson offered the possibility of a rocket swap for the Jupiters in Turkey right off the bat (39). At last Khrushchev seems to have been affected by Robert Kennedy 's announcement that, in spite of the fact that there could be "No compensation" with the Turkey rockets under weight, it was normal that the United States would expel them after the emergency was more than (83). It is conceivable that offering this open door would have hurried the determination, yet far
Most would say climate change is one of the most critical issues facing the world. Our current president, Barack Obama, has passed some of the best environmental regulations of any president. His decision to reject the Keystone XL pipeline secured his reputation as an environmentalist. The Keystone XL pipeline extension enables oil companies to expand development of Canada’s tar sands, increasing greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change. But it will be Obama’s successor, the next president, that determines whether we continue to move forward with environmentally friendly policies.
President Rebukes Huckabee for Holocaust Remark President Obama rebuked Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee for calling forth the Holocaust in his speech opposing the Iran nuclear deal. Obama 's remarks are persuant to a clash between Obama and the Republicans contending to replace him. Obama commented at a press conference during his visit to Ethiopia. He dismissed the remarks as "a pattern" of remarks from candidates that "would be considered ridiculous if it weren 't so sad." Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee has faced broad criticism after likening the nuclear deal to "marching the Israelis to the door of the oven," a reference to the Holocaust.
Currently, in North Dakota, there is a major protesting taking over. Members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe are taking a stand and protesting against the Energy Transfer Company. The protests derive from an oil pipeline that is in the process of being built. According to their official company website, the Energy Transfer Company are developing the pipeline to provide transportation of crude oil from points in the Bakken/Three Forks production areas in North Dakota all the way to Patoka, Illinois. The company claims that this will be more environmentally friendly and it will lower costs.
They were not getting a say in government issues kicked off of their “promised” land that the United States government said they “could” have. The U.S. made this temporary and that is what caused the protests in the documents and other ones throughout history. Today, they are hurt by it. For example, the area around Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota became famous in the recent headline. They were protesting the oil pipeline that would carry gallons of American oil from North Dakota to Illinois.
He then pointed out some of the issues in which he and the supposed shoe-in winner Clinton differ: raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour, the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, his opposition to the Keystone pipeline, his opposition the war in Iraq and his opposition to the USA Patriot Act. Sanders unambiguous reply was prompted when a reporter said to him: "You said you won 't criticize or attack Hillary Clinton, certainly. But you did seem to draw some implicit contrasts when you said you don 't take money from Super PACs and you voted against the Iraq war ..." That is when Sanders lit off, refusing the bait.
Rick Perry, governor of Texas for the past 15 years, announced his campaign for president with the quote “We must do right and risk the consequences”. Perry stated this within a quote slightly directed to President Obama, footing how he seems separated from the rest of government and yada yada politics. The reason I chose this quote was not just how it equates to our current political standing, but how doing the right thing has its consequences. As such, I find the reason that a backlash exists to what 's right is because any view, right or wrong, will challenge someone as wrong, and no one wants to be wrong.
He stated himself as a Reform Party’s presidential nomination, but then left February 14, 2000. Trump went back the Republican party in 2009.

The Second Amendment As A Defining Characteristic of American Culture “I will get rid of gun-free zones on schools…and on military bases. My first day, it gets signed, okay? My first day. There’s no more gun-free zones,” Donald Trump said.
He said, “50 years is enough.” Although he once said that he personally wouldn’t do any sort of business with Cuba and that America should maintain an economic embargo against Cuba, he did mention how the change in relationships with Cuba is fine. However, he believes that the U.S should think closely about what they want from Cuba before ending it all. He said,“ 'We have to make a good deal. I would want to make a good deal.
“ A Black Snake will come from the North, Everything it touches it will slowly kill, It will poison every river.” - Sioux Prophecy. The Dakota Access Pipeline can create more jobs and will stop the United States from buying foreign oil. These are good value to push this forward but the list of Pros is short then the list of Cons.
The United States of America is a country known for freedom. It is so widely valued that the Constitution lays out the different rules and laws that gives freedom to its citizens. This Constitution protects the right of each citizen; one of the most popularly known amendments is the one stating the protection of “life, liberty and property.” So, if America is a country based off freedom and these rights, why is it that the native culture to this country are the ones whose “life, liberty, and property” are taken away the most? Most can guess which culture is in the previous question: Native Americans.
Over the past years Native Americans had cared for their own sacred lands, the story and religion that their primogenitors had taught them. The Native Americans had still carried the strong belief, that their land shall stay the same as if it should've been until new people had come in from elsewhere to change the land to something we all see outside till this day. However, there is a new project “The Dakota Access Pipeline” that had crossed the line of Native American trust between the new people that had changed everything the Natives had had since their ancestors were still living. No matter what effect the pipeline puts on most people there are some positive causes that can change a person such as protesters to think positive towards the pipeline being built on Indian reservation land. Even if the pipeline can cause many people to have a thought that the pipeline should not be built, only if they can hear from both sides, they can have a second thought and allow the pipeline to be built.
