Vietnam: Effects on America- http://www.glynn.k12.ga.us/BHS/academics/junior/durham/daniels11885/home.html Part 3- Why was the Watergate scandal so important? It was important because, President Richard Nixon got caught with many crime charges. He got elected out of office for many of the crimes. The purpose of this was to explain what Watergate Scandal was, what happened to President Nixon. The original audience of this would have been the publics, from the government.
The Watergate Scandal In the Federalist Papers #51, President James Madison argues that separations of power are necessary because “men are not angels”. This separation between the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches ensures that no one branch becomes too powerful, but with this separation ultimately problems are bound to occur. Over the history of the United States, many conflicts have arisen between the various branches over conflicting interests, with a notable conflict between the legislative and executive branches being the Watergate Scandal. This conflict, which took place during the Richard Nixon administration, resulted in the first resignation of a United States president in history. The Watergate was an American political scandal which occurred when Richard Nixon, the 37th President of the United States, was running for reelection against his democratic rival, George Stanley McGovern.
The evidence that surfaced was able to link Nikon to destroying key documents to cover-up of the break in as well as uncovering that the Nixon reelection committee had run “dirty schemes and tricks” during the campaign against the Democrats. It also shed light on the administrations illegal wiretapping of phones of “the enemies” or journalists that had been extremely critical of Nixon. Even though Nixon continued to maintain that he was innocent it was later revealed after numerous attempts to obtain the evidence that he secretly taped routine conversations that were had in his office. After the amount of incriminating evidence and the endless wonder about the depth of his involvement on August 8, 1974 during a televised special announcement Richard Nixon gave a one line speech vaguely admitting his involvement and public stepping down from office as President. He was succeeded by Gerald Ford who later pardoned Nixon from his crimes.
Even though Jack was able to prove there was fraudulent activity going on within his own company, his choice to expose the information to the Navy caused him to lose his position as director on the project at American Eagle. Jack’s contact at the Navy seemed very concerned and at some point, the allegations were addressed between American Eagle and
Institutions Over the past few years, the nation has been temporarily outraged by many different government scandals such as the leak of a CIA agent’s cover by their own government; the firing of United States Attorneys who weren’t blindly loyal to the administration; the suspension of habeas corpus rights, the friendly-fire death and subsequent cover-up of soldier Pat Tillman; the warrantless wiretapping of American citizens. That last scandal is in the news again, because the President managed to have the laws changed retroactively, so his once-illegal surveillance program is now the law of the land. The military has covered up many things that have happened in the past to prevent from ruining their reputation and to discourage people from
All three of these organizations have “valid” reasons for wanted the president dead. The CIA, for one, was frustrated with JFK and possibly took it upon themselves to take care of the problem. * * The CIA was a very secretive organization in the 1960s and very little was known about their operations. However, during that time period, the CIA was widely believed to have carried out many high-profile political assassinations. Seven percent of conspiracy-loving Americans blame the Central Intelligence Agency for Kennedy's death.
Edward Snowden was an ex National Security Agency (NSA) contractor who leaked classified government information to journalists about the agency’s domestic spying activities which he believed to be an abuse of NSA’s authority and illegal(McCutcheon). He maintains that his revelations were for the good of the public because the government was over reaching and trampling on our Bill of Rights. And as a result, some people see him as a hero while others have branded him as a traitor. Although Snowden sees himself as a good citizen and a force for good, I on the contrary, take the position that his actions has put the nation at a disadvantage against our fight with the terrorist and therefore, that makes him a traitor in my eyes. To begin with, Snowden’s revelations made know to the public that the NSA has been collecting phone records on millions of US citizens as well as running an electronic surveillance program code name PRISM.
No special place, no special persons are to blame. A nation cannot practice a course of inhuman crime for three hundred years and then suddenly throw off the effects of it "(73). Chapman felt that the integrity of the American people was severely eroded when he states that “I understand that an attempt to prosecute the chief criminals has been made, and has entirely failed; because the whole community, and in a sense our whole people, are really involved in the guilt. The failure of the prosecution in this case, in all such cases, is only a proof of the magnitude of the guilt, and of the awful fact that everyone shares in it” (71). Chapman was trying to show that there was more to the story that just the lynching.

Their relationship was ill fated from the start due to the different outlooks that each regime held. Generalissimo Chiang Kai Shek led the GMD and Mao Zedong led the CCP. The reason why the GMD lost the Civil war in China from 1946~1949 was because Chiang became notorious for his corruption and inefficient and inflexible, whereas on the other hand the Communists were persevere in nature and worked upon enhancement of tactics that brought them to rule the country (Wood and McManus, 73). Chiang Kai Shek’s conduct during the Nanjing decade up until 1948 was not received well by many sectors of the Chinese society. Chiang was notorious for launching “reign of terrors against wealthiest inhabitants of the city” (Spence 361).
