Soon after, a man, John Dean was subpoenaed and was to testify. Dean did not approve of President Nixon’s actions and admitted that he even discussed cover-up of the scandal with him. The Senate Watergate committee had been notified by Alexander Butterfield that there were taping devices in the Oval room in the White House (U-S-history.com). The Senate finally got their lead on the real evidence of what could solve the scandal, but the President refused to hand over the
In the case it helped Torricelli find this loophole with the lobbyist already being a former senator. Referred in the primary issue section this is where the government needs to place better controls on guarding these revolving door problems. • Political Action Committee (PAC): helped incorporate organizations contributions and channel those funds to candidates seeking political office like Torricelli did. They watched as all the organizations contributions which the contributors expect that their money will go for campaigning and not sit in an account for years to build someone’s personal business. This also tied in with the case because in the beginning Torricelli was accepting campaign gifts from a contributor which in the PAC is not permitted if the donation of corporate gifts is given to any political politician, it must come from individuals.
How significant was Wolsey in the running of the government in 1514-1529? Wolsey was a great servant to Henry VIII in government from 1514-1529, becoming one of the highest powers in the country. As he was given the title of Lord Chancellor, it meant his power was at probably its greatest point. Henry was said to be a very lazy monarch, and therefore Wolsey would have a significant amount of duties to run the monarchy. Wolsey changed areas of government such as the justice system and revised areas such as finances and parliament structure.
In the beginning the Patriot Act was initially established and thought up by President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney. After 9/11 America was in a place that they have never been in since the American Revolution, a foreign country attacking upon our people. This made our country very skeptical and fearful of another terrorist attack so the leaders of our country thought about a new act to protect our country from a greater evil. Bush and Cheney started up a covert program where only eight people from the house and senate were allowed to even get in on the act, and that was determined by their power they had and ranking they had in the government. They did not want the American public to even know about it.
In chapter five of Chris Matthew’s book Hardball, Keep Your Enemies in Front of You, is just about that: politicians using their enemies for gain and power. The author uses various examples of past presidents, such as Ronald Reagan and Abraham Lincoln, who hired past adversaries to help better their presidencies, reforms, and the public’s view of them. It also shows how the ‘enemies’ still can be against those who they work under if not controlled properly, such seen with Joseph A. Califano during Jimmy Carter’s presidency. Califano was against discrimination in schools and cigarette smoking, which lead to lost of support from Kentucky and North Carolina for Carter. Carter gave too much independence and paid for it, whilst Reagan put Jim Baker in a spot where Baker could not succeed if Reagan did not succeed either.
The arguments that come out of this book as delievered by Jon Krakauer center around Pat’s death while serving in the Army. Arguments arose about the way the government portrayed Pat Tillman’s death to his family and to the rest of the world. Pat Tillman’s death originally wasn’t accurately disclosed as being caused by friendly fire, in which it was, but rather it was told to have been caused by the natural evils of combat and of our countries enemies. President Bush used Pat’s story as a way to promote his administration’s foreign policy. Thus leaving American’s to become conspirious about the truths of war and ethics in the Federal Government.
He also showed courage by using his diplomatic skills to neutralize many foreign affairs and showing the United States of America in a positive light around the world. If using peaceful politics, advancing human rights, and skillful diplomacy are characteristics of courage in politics, then Jimmy Carter is a perfect example. Admittedly, the Carter administration was often criticized for the dismal shape of the economy during his reign. His daring choices often placed him at odds with Congress and popular public opinion. Despite high inflation rates, at the end of his term Carter could credit an 8 million job increase and a significant decrease in the budget deficit.
For a few years America tried to isolate itself from the rest of the world trying to ignore the fight leading up to World War Two. As timed passed and the war tensions increased, America tries to make several international agreements. They made a disarmament conference, as well as treaties with Japan. Despite their hard effort for world peace a world war was unavoidable. During the early 30s America’s foreign policy began to change.
The Iran Contra Affair is one of the black marks that were left on Reagan’s presidency. The former President has distanced himself from the affair ever since it was disclosed in November 1986 that arms were secretly sold to Iran with profits going to the Nicaraguan rebels, sometimes denying outright he had any knowledge of critical events and sometimes issuing blurred statements about his involvement. This event happened halfway through Reagan’s second term his popularity was high going into his second term. But as this event occurred his presidency was called into suspicion. Unshredded documents and interviews with several major players indicate that the actions, which ran counter both to the Administration's much-publicized policy of no
