In Wag The Dog, The media is often found running after stories, inconsiderate of whether the story is even true or a scandal. Often the media do not care “if it's true... If it's a story and it breaks, they're run with it.” Often to show the end result for each of the government’s plan, the audience see the effect via a live telecast or news report on a television. This filming technique helps to show how easily the media is influenced by the government and other major companies.
A main concept in the play Antigone is pride. In class, we discussed the topic of pride and watched a Ted Talk along with it about the fear of being wrong. It relates to King Kreon because as a leader, he wanted to be powerful and make his own decisions. This turned for the worse however, when the decision he made was selfish and went against the people’s beliefs. Kreon’s son Haimon warned him before the execution of Antigone that it was not what
In the incendiary statement, that comes within the wake of terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, Calif., Trump says, “Without looking at the various polling data, it is obvious to anybody the hatred is beyond comprehension. Where this hatred comes from and why we will have to determine. Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life.” His campaign said he would keep the ban intact “until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on,” as well as the facts around the 2 attackers who killed fourteen people in San Bernardino.
Soon after, Trump took to Twitter to insult the GOP candidate. The tweet suggested that Bush would have more lenient views on immigration reform because of his Mexican-born wife, Columba. During another press conference, Trump scornfully told highly respected television anchor, Jorge Ramos, to "go back to Univision" before ordering security to physically removed the Mexican-American journalist. Ramos was trying to ask Trump about his plan regarding immigration, specifically his plan to deport all undocumented immigrants, but Trump said he was being disruptive. He dictated the he had no say, and that security had made the decision to kick out Ramos, but said he agreed with it.
In this paper I will be discussing “American Idiot” by Green Day as a protest song. A protest song, “is a song that is associated with a movement for social change and hence part of the broader category of topical songs or songs connected to current events” (Google, 2015). People who feel strongly towards a certain political view within society create protest songs, and this is the only way they know how to express their opinions. Protest songs can come in many different musical genres such as folk and rock music.
There were also many other times where he acted outside of his authority that is stated in the Constitution. His views before were very anti-federalist because he expressed his opposition to the whiskey tax. And he was very upset with the alien and sedition acts that John Adams put into place. His views changed very radically as he saw the need for a stronger central government and how essential it was for the new nation to be
Two of the candidates I questioned believe that yes, the United States of America has swung too far away from its heritage of liberty in its quest to up the security of our country. They believe this because with all the dangerous things happening in the world like terrorists attacks, school shootings, child abductions, hate crimes, etc. have caused this nation to focus on protecting the states and have lost its sight on our heritage of liberty. The last candidate I spoke with disagreed and said she didn’t believe our nation was swinging too far away from its heritage of liberty over our nations’
A key part would be how Larson intensively wrote about the dirty antics of the politicians. For example, Alexander Hamilton trying to prevent Adams from becoming Vice President. He willingly put words into Adams’ mouth to make him seem unfit for the position. This has ultimately changed my perspective on Alexander Hamilton. I thought of him as a very key figure in history because of the Revolutionary War not because of his sabotage of political affairs.
Politics is often a serious matter. In today’s society, there is a comedic atmosphere around politics. In the 2016 election, there were many comedians joking and parodying Donald Trump which gave him a boost in winning the election. Not only did the joking distract the voters from Trump’s real political stance but the fake news and jokes about Hilary Clinton which diminished Hilary to just her negative traits also gave Trump the upper hand in the election. as not So is that humor necessarily good for politics, especially when it concerns presidential elections?
Trump is one of the candidates running for the Republican Party bid for President of the United States. He wrote a three-page statement explaining why he believes that “the worst elements of Mexico are being pushed into the United States by the Mexican government”. In this statement, he explains that many of the Mexicans that come to America are drug dealers, rapists, and other criminals. This is all coming from a man that is viewed by millions of people as a plausible candidate for President of the United States. There will come a time where people that supports Trump, because of his discriminatory view on race, will act on those beliefs violently and without discrimination.
Trump states, “I want surveillance of these people, I want surveillance if we have to and I don 't care” (“Trump: Islam Hates Us”). When Trump uses the statement “I don 't care”, it shows how thoughtless he is towards the moral beliefs of Muslims. Demagoguery calls for Trump’s solutions to be the only right ones, because he thinks of himself as the only capable of making America great again. Trumps uses simplification in order resolve radical terrorism by temporarily banning muslims and keeping surveillance
According to him all of the crime, drug and rapists are because of the immigrants. He states that the illegal immigrants are hampering the nation on every standpoint. This statement has severely hurt the immigrants from who has already been the citizen of this United State. Many people think that Trump who is a businessman is not supposed to enter into the politic as he doesn’t have that kind of attitude to be the president of America. The opponent of the Donald trump believes that if the Trump win the election he will make this country just a joke instead of his speech of making a great
How can congress conduct their constitution oversight of the Executive branch if the agencies lie about what is going on? How can American voters make smart decisions if they are misinformed about its activities? As I discussed this issue with co- workers, some didn’t comprehend the importance of Snowden’s information. They all stated that we as American’s should not worry about the government looking into our business if we have nothing to hide. However, on June 12, 2013 Rand Paul explained the importance best when he stated” In the United States, we are supposed to have a government that is limited with its parameters established by our constitution.
Abigail Girard Mrs. Rolfs AP Language 16 October 2016 Eugene Robinson in the article, Trump May Be Worse Than Just a Pig, explains that Republican nominee for President is an angry sexual predator who uses his fame and wealth to get what he wants, and is losing supporters daily. Robinson supports his suggestion by first explaining how some republicans have abandoned Trump because of a recent tape released of Trump using vulgar words to describe what he does to women; this has made it impossible to pretend that the party has nominated a candidate that could be worthy of presidency. He then claims that Trump is always in a constant rage which causes him to make irrational decisions. Lastly, the author describes how some women have sued Trump,
Sanders explained that as a young man he objected to the policy and respected those that fought for our country. Interestingly, illegal immigration, a hot topic of the Republican debate, barely rated a comment. Of course, marijuana use was also discussed and then the candidates talked about who probably hated them the most. Webb’s response about someone in Vietnam trying to kill him but not being around today was a bit creepy.
