The Mafia could be responsible for President John F. Kennedy’s assassination for a list of reasons, such as, to show power to Robert Kennedy, to retaliate for the failed CIA operation, and for a lack of information. However, there is no reason that justifies killing the President of the United States. There have been many assassination attempts and few actual assassinations on presidents.

In Lameman’s terms, it was a method to expose supposed communists who infiltrated the United States. McCarthy was notorious for making false allegations and accusations to attract attention to his policy, brainwashing Americans into believing their country was being intruded by communists. A large majority of McCarthy’s accusations were backed up by little or next to no evidence, “HUAC’s circuslike investigations and unproved accusations left a trail of shattered reputations and broken lives”. This was seen especially in the case of Air Force Reserve Milo Radulovich, who was discharged from the force due to supposedly having family who were Communist sympathizers. When trialled, a sealed envelope was present with supposed evidence but was never opened.
In modern society, deception is most prominently the root of political corruption. That could be in comparison to Hamlet with King Claudius. Claudius lies to his people and murdered his biological brother, King Hamlet. He displays little remorse as he declares, “My crown, mine own ambition, and my queen” (165). Likewise, President Trump also received power through mysterious circumstances.
The primary source of all the misconception about Gatsby’s origins comes from his guests’ ostentatious rumors and stories. Everyone in West Egg knows of Gatsby and his over the top parties. That is what he is most credited for in West Egg, however, nobody knows anything else about who he is. Naturally, when people do not have the information they rumor and speculate about the truth and create their own version of truth from that. These ludicrous rumours and stories have caused many wild assumptions about Gatsby such as him having killed a man or him having been a German spy “somebody told me they thought he killed a man once.”.....“it’s more that he was a German spy during the war.”....I heard from a man who knew all about him, grew up with him in Germany,”(Fitzgerald 48).

The Great Purge of Russia Communism is when property is publicly owned and people are paid according to their abilities. Joseph Stalin was the communist leader of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, and a paranoid leader. He initiated the Great Purge because he feared people were plotting to remove him from power. During the Purge, his agents would torture the accused, and over half a million people would die. An explanation of how the accused died, who was targeted, and who carried out the killings will enable one to understand who was responsible and how they carried out this event.
All of these factors combined to create an fearful and dreadful atmosphere, which provided a ripe environment for the rise of committed anti communist, Joseph McCarthy, who for many Americans was “the most enduring symbol of this ‘Red Scare’”(“Joseph R.”). “McCarthy 's power to stir fears of creeping Communism was not entirely based on illusion, of course; the paranoid, real or pretended, always secretes its pearl around a grain of fact”, he spent almost five years trying in vain to expose communists and other “loyalty risks” in the U.S. government, suggestion of disloyalty was enough to convince many Americans of the traitors and spies in their government. (“Joseph R.”). Senator Joseph McCarthy rose to national
John Edgar Hoover was the first Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation of the United States. Hoover was thought to be involved because he was good friends with Lyndon b. Johnson (JFK assassination co-conspirators). Hoover was also a master at blackmail and he also had a lot of dirt on JFK to protect his vital interest (the suspect). Hoover abused his power of lead FBI as he did not agree on everything JFK said or did (the suspects). Hoover was at the pre -assassination final meeting of conspirators.

A White House employee disclosed that recordings complete with all of Nixon 's Oval Office conversations were acquirable in 1973. Nixon fought against the committee in an effort to keep his precious tapes out of the public eye.
I am Not a Crook: The 37th President Leading up to the 1972 Presidential election, President Richard Nixon wanted to defeat his opponents with a landslide victory. This desire allowed him and his staff to bend and even break the law of the United States, adding to this the President was becoming increasingly paranoid due to a large amount of leaks from his office to the media. This caused President Nixon to install listing devices in the White House, but after the leak of documents know as the Pentagon Papers, the break in of the of the Democratic National Committee, DNC, the cover up that fallowed the break in, and the deleting of eight-teen minutes of taped recorded conservation brought to light a darker side to the President. This scandal
Nixon had an enemy list, filled with people who had criticized him, such as politicians, reporters, journalists, and others that he felt were a threat to him (Foner). To make sure no one leaked any of his campaign strategies and to know what the democrats were planning, Nixon assigned spies, called The Plumbers, to go into the Watergate Hotel. The Watergate Hotel was where the democrats were having their meetings and the Plumbers broke in to wiretap their rooms and steal top secrets documents. The spies were caught on their second attempt to break in to fix the faulty microphones. After the scandal, Nixon gave a national speech saying that the White House staff had nothing to do with the scandal (Watergate scandal).
Sam Robert’s article, “A Decade of Fear” explains how McCarthyism turned Americans against each other after World War 2. In the first place he lied about communists being in the U.S. senate. As stated in Sam Robert’s article, “News of McCarthy’s accusations against the state dept. of president Harry Truman sent shock waves across the nation.” McCarty’s statements made him look like a gallant anticommunist and gave him power. As a matter of fact, he was considered more of a witch hunter.
