Congress never declared a state of war against North Korea, however Congress did continue to provide funding. Total U.S. casualties: 36,574 killed, 103,284 wounded, POW/MIA 12,640. Truman also declared the use of emergency powers when he seized private steel mills that failed to produce steel because of a labor strike in 1952. With the Korean Conflict ongoing, Truman believed he could not wage war successfully if the economy failed to provide him with the resources necessary to keep the troops well equipped. The U. S. Supreme Court, however, refused to accept that argument in Youngstown Sheet & Tube Co. v. Sawyer, voting 6-3 that neither Commander in Chief powers, nor any claimed emergency powers gave the President the authority to seize private property without Congressional legislation.
McCarthyism had a multitude of reasons as to why it turned many Americans against each other after WWII. Within the article, “A Decade of Fear” by Sam Robert, the events leading up to McCarthyism, and events after, are thoroughly explained to showcase the effects on civilization in America. In Robert’s view, “...many Americans were inclined to believe the worst, even without evidence” (9). Joseph McCarthy scared Americans by claiming he knew of 205 Communists working in the State Department after WWII. Later on, he had reported that he only knew of 57 Communists instead of 205, but never publicly released any evidence to back up his claim.
But from the editorial commentaries on domestic opposition run by the networks before 1968, not one approved of the protestors ' activities. In fact, of all statements presented on film about the demonstrations, including those not made by reporters were favorable. After the Tet Offensive in 1968, the number of protests skyrocketed, and televised statements on domestic opposition reflected increasing public acceptance of antiwar protest. But never did the media support the antiwar movement with fervor because it needed to maintain the public’s hatred of

The last month has been, to put it mildly, eventful in American politics. With the at-times hostile protests from leftists at the University of Missouri to GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump’s numerous controversial comments, November was marred by outrage from both sides of the spectrum with little room for nonpartisanship. But looking past these individuals, there was a lone bright spot, and it came from someone not known for his politics, but rather his music. On November 19, CNN released an interesting interview with country music legend Willie Nelson. As the segment began, the more-liberal Nelson was asked if he would consider smoking marijuana with the previously mentioned Trump.
Around the 15th and 19th century some Indian emperors have executed several Shias Scholars and destroyed their sacred sites. In modern time, outsiders have exploited the division of the groups by using Sunnis to suppress Shias. The two groups fear each other, therefore as one group feels more threaten, the other reacts harder in response. Despite the tension, many Sunnis and Shias refuse to allow their differences to divide, nor bring hostility between them. According to Halpern “despite the conflict, every Friday over the past few weeks Shiites and Sunnis in Iraqi cities have come together in major squares throughout the country….they have gathered united, as one voice, in protest over the current divisive situation.
It does not happen very often: Fifty youths are protesting with signs like “Let us vote” and chanting things like “Our voices matter,” outside the office of Ohio’s Secretary of State Jon Husted in Columbus, Ohio, then, suddenly, they learn that they’ve won. “We did it!” protest organizer Meredith Whitaker, 17, shouted into a megaphone. “We’re showing the government that they might not care about us, but we care about them.” On Friday afternoon, March 11, 2016, that really happened when Franklin County Common Pleas Court Judge Richard Frye issued an emergency order to block Secretary of State Husted’s attempt to stop 17-year-olds from casting ballots to elect candidates for the next president. Even though more than 16,000 17-year olds had already
It started to be a regular thing until I saw the government that I had once trusted beat a man who wouldn 't leave his daughter behind. As rage filled me up I knew I had to do something to help the very people that had taught me my culture, not only was it the right thing it do, but instead it was what I had to do. It is november 18, 2038 which marks the anniversary of my capture a year earlier. I have been taken from my home without my family for a year and put in a camp in mexico, yet it seems as if everyone around me is apart of me because we share the same culture. In the camps we are not allowed to celebrate anything that Trump says we can 't or we will be killed on the spot.

The management promised to construct 700 houses, only six were built, but didn’t want to unveil the details of where did the donations go. Moreover, when two destructive disaster – Superstorm Sandy and Hurricane Isaac – hit the United States in 2012, Americans have donated hundreds of million dollars to Red Cross to help thousands of casualties of the storms. According to the investigation of ProPublica and NPR, the charity failed to respond to its mission, not able to meet the needs of the victims of the disaster. Jim Dunham, one of the drivers, said that dozens of trucks have been ordered to be deployed to deliver aids but were almost empty, no reliefs to be provided. Based on interviews and documents, Red Cross didn’t have sufficient basic supplies for the victims, or sometimes if they have more than enough, those were just put to
