However, we cannot let down our guard. Remember, the Deputy Chair of the DNC has ties to the Nation of Islam, and Linda Sarsour of the Women’s March has bemoaned the “Jewish media” for disparaging both her and Hitler-lover Louis Farrakhan. The silence from Jewish leaders on this is deafening. Code Pink, a far left ‘activist’ group, makes Israel bashing their number one priority, going as far as to support terrorists like Rasmea Odeh. And if you recall, liberal websites such as Daily Kos labeled Jewish Senator Schumer a traitor and “Israel firster” when he opposed the Iran Deal in
The modern war fought was the war in Iraq after 9/11. The war in Iraq began March 19, 2003, and began with the bombing of Baghdad after other means had failed (“The War on Terrorism…” 1-4). The US tried to resolve the issues between us and Iraq, but nothing had worked. Thus, years of death and fighting ensued. In October of 2006, Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called for the total destruction of Israel, thus condemning the peace process (“The War On Terrorism…” 9).
The first case of the day that was heard by the Supreme Court on December 13th was Texas v. Johnson. Gregory Lee Johnson, a member of the Revolutionary Communist Youth Brigade, led a protest at the 1984 Republican National Convention in Dallas to protest Ronald Reagan’s reelection. During this protest, Mr. Johnson soaked an American flag in kerosene and proceed to burn it. Mr. Johnson was then arrested and charged for violating the Texas state law that prevented the desecration of a venerated object. The proceedings began with statements from the petitioners who claimed that precedent cases such as US v. O’Brien (1968), which deemed that the burning of draft cards was an invalid form of free speech, and Boos v. Barry (1988), which reinforced
1. The title of the article is “On the Keystone Pipeline, President Obama Missed an Opportunity” the article was published November 11, 2015 at 12:31 pm by Greg IP. 2. In the article, “On the Keystone Pipeline, President Obama Missed an Opportunity”, it is discussing President Obama’s decision on vetoing the Keystone XL Pipeline and the thought process behind it. In a recent statement President Obama explained his reason for vetoing the pipeline by stating that in order to prevent the climate from warming up we must leave some fossil fuels in the ground.
Using President Ronald Reagan words, Cruz said his strategy “should be very simple -- to defeat radical Islam – We win, they lose.” He noted that the recent shooting occurred within weeks after the terrorist attacks in Paris. “This horrific murder underscores that we are at a time of war,” Cruz said. “Whether or not President Obama or the current administration is willing to acknowledge it, our enemies are at war with us.” Cruz vowed when elected as President that he will “rip to shreds the catastrophic Iranian nuclear deal.” “The U.S. needs a leader who will say to Iran, either you will stop your nuclear program, or we will stop it for you,” Cruz said. He also pledged to move the American embassy to Jerusalem and cut off federal funding from universities that support boycotting Israeli products. Cruz described how this administration justifies the recent terror attacks describing how Secretary of State John Kerry called the Charlie Hebdo attacks earlier this year as
On January 16th, 1991, President George H. W. Bush publicly announced in the Address to the Nation the United States’ participation in the Gulf War. The Gulf War arose when Iraq accused Kuwait—rich in oil—of keeping the price of crude oil low, demanding it to forgive its thirty billion dollar debt in compensation for the acclaimed conspiracy (Smitha, n.d.). In this announcement, President Bush stated the United States’ just intentions for participating, and its goals. President Bush affirmed that other means to make Iraq leave Kuwait had been tried, but were unsuccessful. Thus, the US’s goal in this engagement was “…to drive [Iraq] from Kuwait by force.” Since the United States sought to fight an injustice: Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait for unbacked accusations, and pressures to forgive a debt, the Jus Ad Bellum theory would approve the United States’ participation in this
Former Texas Governor and two-time Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry came out of hiding after suspending his campaign to speak at Value Voter Summit Friday afternoon in Washington, D.C. Speaking as a non-presidential candidate, Perry called on all conservatives to stand by a candidate that wouldn’t divide the party. Without mentioning names, Perry renewed the rivalry against the Republican front-runner Donald Trump. During his brief run, Perry would tried to take on Trump, but that led to his poll numbers dropping, which ultimately led to Perry being the very first candidate to bow out the race earlier this month. “We see in our politics today a lot of agitation,” Perry said to the 2,500 social conservative attendees on Friday,
Thurman demonstrated his anger by the dropping of the Atomic bombs. After 6 years o anger and outrage, the US government signed the peace treaty with Japan. Although, the event was horrible and inhumane, the survivors found a way to deal with the painful memory. Many had to adjust and learn how live a to normal life. If I was fighting during the Baton Death March battle I would be on the American and Filipino Side, because I would fight for what is
Moreover, a particularly fascinating incident regarding book burning is the recent burning of the holy book of Islam, the Quran by Terry Jones. In March 2010, Terry Jones, the pastor of the Christian Dove World Outreach Center located in Gainesville, Florida, burned 200 copies of the Quran. At first, his motives were unknown, but later that month he announced that this was just the beginning, and he would burn another 2,998 copies of the Quran- one for every victim of the 2001 attacks on US soil. Naturally, this caused outrage
Republican Presidential nominee hopeful Donald Trump made the rounds of the Sunday morning political shows this week, bringing his patented brand of mud-slinging, political spin with him. NBC Meet the Press host Chuck Todd immediately put Donald Trump on the defensive by airing a new Ted Cruz ad. The ad accuses Trump of using eminent domain to at powerful business connections to "bulldoze the home of an elderly widow". The ad claims that Donald Trump won 't change the system because he 's what 's wrong with it. Trump denied the claims made by the ad.
"Since the Oklahoma Supreme Court 's decision in June regarding the Ten Commandments monument, my constituents wanted to know what could be done," Rep. John Paul Jordan (R-Yukon) was quoted as saying by Associated Press. "I knew it would be a difficult proposition to undo the ruling, so we looked at giving voters the opportunity to remove the basis for the ruling." After the monument was built, other groups also inquired about space to place their monuments on the Capitol grounds. The requests to put their statues came from a satanic church in New York, a Hindu leader from Nevada, and a satirical Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. The American Civil Liberties Union, who represented Prescott, will challenge the monument in federal court, if it returns after the referendum.
She sang an anti-war version of his song, Faith with George Bush at Brits Awards. In the lyrics, she says “We’ve been here before/talk of violence and talk of war/I don’t wanna to see children die no more/so I gonna make a stand.” Ms Dynamite wants to make his 1987 hit as a protest against the war in Iraq. Same with the Rapper Eminem where he composed a song “Mosh” attacking George W. Bush by encouraging the young generation to vote to defeat Bush. However, most of the lyrics are complaints relating to Iraq war. In Brazil, Hip-hop Artist Costa helped Federal District’s Committee to create a hip-hop film titled “Don’t Traffic” which is about Human Trafficking.
President Carter was initially trusted by the public because he was considered an outsider in a political sense. He was a peanut farmer instead a crook, businessman on Wall Street. The American public tended to disagree with Carter’s foreign politics, such as handing over control of the Panama Canal to a dictator, and ending the Russian wheat deal to establish trade with the U.S.S.R. But the foreign event that made Carter look the weakest was his handling of the Iran Hostage Crisis where 52 American embassy officials were held hostage and tortured for 444 days in Tehran (History.com). Carter had first allowed a shah to seek medical attention in the U.S. after previously being banned from coming, after the shah was in America, Iranian students attacked the embassy and took hostages.
