In order to hide the incriminating evidence, Nixon compulsively lied throughout the whole predicament to the press and to the people of America-even the government. Eventually, Nixon handed over the tapes as commanded by the US Supreme Court. Suspiciously, eight and a half minute of a recording was missing, potentially making it impossible to uncover all of the evidence. This was the tragedy of the Watergate Scandal. One of the tapes, called “Smoking Gun” confirms Nixon had yielded justice.
This scandal caused many Americans and Republican politicians to push Eisenhower to remove Nixon as his running mate and to question Nixon’s integrity. In rebuttal to the scandal, Nixon took the bull by the horns and defended himself by going on live national television and addressed the nation by giving the famous Checkers speech. The soon to be Vice-President articulated his speech with a perfect combination of Pathos, Ethos, and Logos to turn the tables from making everyone hate him to making the American People and Republican Politicians love him. Nixon’s integrity was
Kept in the loop and consulted on policy. But, they will have another role as well. Once a year after the election the American public will be given an opportunity to vote on how the president is doing with a simple up or down vote. If less than 45% of America gives the president a thumbs up, they are bumped out of office (good-bye have a nice life) and the vice-president becomes president and the third most popular candidate becomes vice-president. And this happens every year, giving the president motivation to give it their all, for all six years if they want to keep their job.
He suffered money issues and social issues. He won a prize in 1940 and 1964. Steinbeck wrote 3 books and got a award from them. Every book he wrote was about the Great Depression. Steinbeck was in Stanford university but never graduated from it.
Cholera Morbus and arsenic poisoning have some of the same symptoms. Some of the symptoms that they share are vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and in severe cases death. This alarmed many people that Zachary Taylor was the first president to be assassinated. A president had never been assassinated in the presidential office at this time. People were not fully sold on the idea that a simple glass of milk and cherries could kill such a rough and tough man, but a radical thought that Taylor was assassinated was not widely
LBJ was sworn into office less than 3 hours after the shooting. He took the oath of office on Airforce One at the airport. Mrs. Kennedy was there in the dress that had President Kennedy’s blood on it. President Johnson’s first presidential proclamation came the following day when he declared November 25, 1963 would be a national day of mourning for John F. Kennedy. After the assassination of JFK the secret service changed many policies, such as; all presidents must ride in enclosed cars, presidents may no longer walk along the routes to shake hands, congress allowed Mrs. Kennedy and her children 2 more years of protection after leaving the White House and then in 1965 congress voted for lifetime protection, and the secret service has grown from 513 in 1963 to over 6500 today.
Throughout the entirety of the speech Thatcher builds Regan up as not marley a powerful leader but a man of unshakable character. Thatcher highlights both these aspects of Reagan's character by stating “He sought to mend America’s wounded spirit, to restore the strength of the free world.” (5-7) In painting Regan as a healing figure over the american people as well as the entirety of the free world Thatchers leaves little room for listeners to skew Regan in an negative light. Emplainting Metaphor into her speech allowed Thatcher's to create such an effect, honoring the fallen president to the utmost high extent. Such statements left Regan encompassed by his strong morality, and decimated any non benevolent notions of the President. Suffering from the devastating loss, the american people grasped at such high spoken words of Reagan, healing though the positive memories of his legacy
Senator McCarthy denounces more than two hundred government workers for being card-carrying communists. However, with the concerns of communism increasing in the East Asia and Europe, he believes that these accusations are justifiable due to the communists who allegedly infiltrated the U.S. government. “Known as McCarthyism, the paranoid hunt for infiltrators was notoriously difficult on writers and entertainers, many of whom were labeled as communist sympathizers and were unable to continue working” (213). These accusations are unjust to the people who are not actually communist sympathizers, it is difficult for one to speak up against these falsities. Furthermore, in The Crucible Francis Nurse explains to Danforth how the girls are just pretending.
Surely, he doesn’t. Due to his incompetency, Louis Sears lacks the ability to understand their language, culture, and history. Including with that, he sent his report to Washington, and he falsely claimed that “Sarkhan is more firmly than ever on the side of America”; yet he hardly interacted with any of the natives (page 78). This imbecile’s ignorance is as repulsive as Homer Atkins’s liverish-freckled and veiny hands. Though, he had no desire to exterminate communism, he purposely intended to waste two years in Sarkhan, until federal judgeship opened up.
This means that despite the impacts of the war, many in America still believed that America’s role (and the best way to achieve its interests) was by leaving other nations alone. This is because the war was extremely unpopular. Many Americans did not trust that President Wilson campaigned for reelection on a platform of anti-war, but then got the United States involved. They also distrusted that he had promised a just peace in his fourteen point plan, but ended up with secret land deals and a punishing Treaty of Versailles, as opposed to a rehabilitory treaty. As a result, the irreconcilables in Congress voted multiple times to strike down the League of Nations.
