Is this “the big lie [Obama's opponents] dare not to admit?” MSNBC commentator Chris Matthews asked last year. “They know full well he's an American. They're simply out to destroy him personally. Yes, assassinate him with their lies.” What this is trying to say is that clearly the president is a citizen but to some they just didn’t want to believe it. Also it depends on your point of view to agree if he was lying or not.
President Bush's administration (McClellan) may have been too quick to judge the scandal over the leak, making a firm statement to fire whomever was responsible for the leak of the identity of an undercover CIA operative in 2003, but since it has been found that two top White House aides, Karl Rove and I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, were the source of the leak, the administration as of now has reneged on it's original statement. Creon would not listen to the people because he wanted to keep image of the state strong, essentially acting too tough. Bush went back on a statement made by his administration in order to protect people in his administration, thereby trying to be little too fair to his cabinet. What if these two men were switched? Creon probably would have just fired the party/parties responsible for the leak, and Bush wouldn't sacrifice either of his daughters just to uphold something he said in the past, even if it is essentially the law of the land.
As this may be out of topic, this is why I believe it contributes to what I’m trying to explain. As we know, not many believed Donald Trump would win because he was seen as a sexual predator, racist and a government destroyer. As he is a republican have the world today accepts gay rights, abortion and the freedom for the immigrants to stay in our country. As the results of him winning against Hillary Clinton. The entire U.S. population has down riots, protests and social awareness to say we made a bad choice to allow him to be our president.
The President has engaged in conduct that is against his constitutional duty to execute the laws (Starr). The President committed the crimes and just like any other common criminal he should have to pay for what he has done. If a doctor or a teacher participated in sexual activities with a patient or student would he or she not be forced to resign or be fired? How is the President's case different from this except for the fact that he is the President and he has also committed other crimes besides having sexual relations with Ms. Lewinsky? All men are created equal isn't that what the constitution says, why is the Presidents case so different.
The opposing argument believes that Richard Nixon made a turning point in history that allowed the people to turn against the government. Nobody can trust a government where the president himself does something against the law. When Nixon was inaugurated he took a sworn oath to protect the people and the country. He lied to his people. He states, “The major problem on the Watergate is simply to clean the thing up by having whoever was responsible admit what happened.
While the government was so busy trying to convince the public that Lee Harvey Oswald brutally murdered John F. Kennedy, they missed one important thing. The truth. The facts. Insufficient medical and hospital procedures, suspicious incidents during the Dallas motorcade, the impossible Magic Bullet theory, and countless other happenings--- these are not just things the American public dreamed up in their heads. They had to begin finding the real truth on their own, for the government had betrayed the American people.
Again the frame of mind that you have to be and are better than everyone else makes American leaders and citizens commit actual crimes against humanity. When America invaded Iraq without United Nations approval that was a violation of international law but according to America it was ok because they were America. Then while America was in Iraq they had little discretion for civilians and in the end hundreds of thousands of innocent men, women and children were killed in that war. Wikileaks showed that we killed civilians as a sport. The United States of America committed war crimes all because our culture has destroyed our value for human life, as long as we further our goals then human life does not matter.
When he became president he issued a pardon on Nixon. Some people think Nixon should not have been pardon, and some people believe that it was right for Ford to pardon Nixon. Richard Nixon shouldn’t have been pardoned because he is deceptive,showed no integrity, his actions were despicable and he committed or ordered a felony. In Nixon’s first Watergate speech he addresses the issue of what is known as the Watergate scandal, and explains why members of his administrationresignedor weresacked.In this speech Nixon is speaking as if he didn’t know about the incident and he is innocent. For an example Nixon says” I was appalled at this senseless, illegal action, and I was shocked to learn that employees of the re-election committee were apparently among those guilty.” Later on people found out that he did indeed order them to break into the DNC Headquarters.
Notice now how almost every movie that has anything to do with politics involves some sinister politician wanting to cheat the people. Doubtfully, when the founding fathers set out for a more united government with a qualified leader, they probably were not worried the he or she would be involved in illegal actions. Most importantly, when the American people disrespect the presidency, and are too busy criticizing or ridiculing the actions and behavior of the man holding the office, we no longer unite under him, and then all patriotism is lost.
A few months after opening up Senator McCarthy and his true purpose of doing the hunts for his improvement of his political side, the Red Scare was over. In the end, people was fearing in vain. The things that people were afraid of such as the communist infiltrating the government and taking over the nation was never happen. People ought to have a better judgement over a situation. Some people like McCarthy have to think about other people and not themselves.
