Some people can argue that the conspiracy of Lee Harvey Oswald did not act as a lone gunman. The main controversy for many Americans for years is what was the motives that driven Oswald to take down a beloved world leader. According to the New York Times, a friend of Oswald’s wife, Priscilla McMillian, made a statement that Oswald did not hate Kennedy, but rather dislike how the government system was running as a capitalism country and it was tragic that Kennedy supported how the United States was running that led Oswald to assassinate JFK. There is a possibility that Oswald was not a lone gunman because JFK was shot twice in two different areas, the first bullet was shot from the right side of his back and the second bullet was fired, aiming on the right side of his head causing a fatal wound that his head was almost blown. Having two bullets shot at two different places in Kennedy’s body provide a key evidence that Oswald had helped from a second
Before the Lincoln assassination John was valued as the shining and happy one. Obviously this was before he was on a quest to take out the President of the United States. Edwin had his own sins he was facing, as he was an avid alcohol abuser.1 Even after Booth murdered Lincoln, Edwin went on living his life. Carter asserts how Edwin was surrounded by controversy at this time period but went on working in the public light and didn’t shy away.2 Edwin later passed away at the age of fifty-nine. He would have a very unique encounter with Abraham Lincoln’s son, Robert Lincoln which will be discussed in a later
Unfortunately the CIA had created the plans before Kennedy was in office, and they did not share all of the information with him and manipulated him into approving it. The blame for this failure lies with both Kennedy and the CIA. The motivation behind the invasion was the United States’ tremendous fear of communism. “I mean, now we look back on that and it can seem sort of ridiculous that we ever had a time when we thought the Communists were going to take over the world. But that is indeed what most Americans thought at the time” (Rasenberg 1).
Right away Hoover did not like King and thought he was influenced by communists. Hoover lost even more respect for King when he called the FBI completely ineffective in resolving the mayhem inflicted upon the negroes in the south. King then came in contact with communists which gave Hoover a reason to spy on him. Hoover set up wiretaps
Kennedy, was a major part in the disaster in Vietnam. During the time period, it seemed highly controversial to go to war against such a small and insignificant place in the world. This may be viewed as one of the biggest mistakes in American history.I personally believe that if Kennedy wasn't assassinated he would have been able to pull us out of Vietnam faster than Johnson did. I think he would learned a great amount from what became a huge mistake and tore the country apart. He would have definitely taken responsibility for his action and it would have just solidified is Presidency much more.
Kennedy too was convinced that Lumumba, with his ties to the Soviet Union was a threat. Mountz shared Kennedy’s view of Lumumba’s influence by sharing his quote: Lumumba would “continue to cause difficulties in the Congo whether he is in control of the government, in jail or released” (Mountz, 156). For this reason, Mountz states: “The Kennedy administration continued to plot against Patrice Lumumba, the self-avowed nationalist and ﬁrst democratically elected prime minister in the Congo, and employed bribery, blackmail, and threats in order to have Cyrille Adoula elected as prime minister in August
Did you know that John Fitzgerald was one of the youngest U.S.A’s presidents in the history? It was one of the things he was most known for. John Fitzgerald Kennedy was an important president because he helped the United States of America stay safe from any danger. Kennedy faced many rage from the Cold War, but he helped stop this. Also, with Cuba, but he made peace with the state.
He was able to assume responsibilities in the midst of extreme times and troubles. Lyndon B. Johnson took the place of JFK and served a phenomenal term. First, Lyndon B. Johnson’s domestic affairs in the U.S. influenced many lives. He passed many laws that changed America for good such as: The Voting Right Act, Medicare, Federal Aid, and education for homeless children. He also passed Food Stamp, national public radio and broadcast, and The Civil Right Act (Millercemter.org, copyroght 2017).
In the final analysis, the mysterious death of Teamster President Jimmy Hoffa could have happened due to two possible theories which are either he was sliced up to his death by a hitman that was hired by Bernadino Provenzano or cremated by Frank Sheeran. Many people believe that Provenzano hired Charles Allen to kill Hoffa because of the threat he put on Provenzano’s life. Another widely agreed on theory is that Frank Sheeran killed him when he was put in a scenario in which was compelled to decide between his life or Hoffa’s. In the end, the case will keep intriguing people for many years to come whether if it was actually Provenzano or Sheeran. Ultimately people will do whatever it takes to make their life ameliorated even if it means eliminating another which shows that Jimmy Hoffa was just another another victim of
The world remembers John F. Kennedy today because his face was in the living room of nearly every American’s house from his campaign in 1960 until his death in 1963. Many people who watched the debates between Kennedy and Nixon on television would choose JFK as the winner, but those who only listened to the debate thought otherwise. This goes to show how charismatic and charming JFK was and how he was the first real president to win in large part due to his personality. The Kennedy family was borderline royal in America during the 1960’s and the young image of John Kennedy still lives in the minds of many to this day. John Kennedy established the modern day trend of American Presidents possessing a celebrity like quality.
