President Polk initially attempted to buy Neuvo Mexico and the Californias but the Mexican government turned it down. He then deliberately sent in General Zachary Taylor with U.S. troops to the disputed area of Rio Grande, which Mexico immediately took as an intentional and aggressive attempt by the United States to take over their lands.

Nevertheless, by early 1965 after he won his first mandate as President, Johnson concluded that only direct American intervention could prevent Communism from spreading to South Vietnam, and more importantly defend him from being the first ever president to lose a war (Karnow 350). Johnson and his advisers both inherited the assumption from Eisenhower and Kennedy that an independent Vietnam was essential for the defense of Southeast Asia and America 's global credibility (Karnow 393). As much as Johnson hoped to limit America 's
Aryan Nations, (AN), took on Neo-Nazism to attempt to spread globally, and establish America as a homeland, or main base if you will. The AN struck fear into enough people nationwide, that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) recognized them as a “top priority terrorist threat.” First off, the AN’s most “successful” era was from the 1980’s until the early 1990’s. In 1998, Richard Gint Butler became deathly ill. Although he elected Nueman Britton and Robert Redfeairn as new AN leaders, he (Butler) was tho only AN leader beforehand. In the earlier
