2 Cheney Emily's insight:

This video is about the First Amendment. The Bill of Rights were written for the Federal government. They later started to incorporate the States in to them. The Establishment clause is at the very beginning. It then goes to talk about freedom of speech.  you can only do this as long as it will not sound like a threat.

What is the 14th Amendment Due Process Clause? - YouTube

2 Cheney Emily's insight:

This video is about Due Process. It is a persons right to fair government procedures. Someone can not be sentenced to prison just bc they think they are guilty. Everyone gets a fair trial. In the 5th amendment the due process clause says that "The Federal governments cannot take away a person's life, liberty, or property, without due process of law."

2 Cheney Emily's insight:

The game was a lot of fun. It was a lot of work having to pass bills and veto them. It was hard to make such decisions. I ended up going to war with a country called Oz and i ended the war in record time and the two countries signed a peace treaty. Overall i really enjoyed this game.

The White House

The White House | 2 Cheney Emily | Scoop.it
2 Cheney Emily's insight:

The White House is a huge building with a lot of rooms that I'm sure I would get lost in. The Presidents schedule today is to travel to Kentucky and make remarks about Indatus and then he is going to travel to Utah and that's it today. He looks like he is going to be doing a lot of traveling today. I feel like the role he's playing today is chief of state because he's traveling around visiting and making remarks about something and representing the U.S. while doing so.

Why Presidents Are Also Celebrities

Why Presidents Are Also Celebrities | 2 Cheney Emily | Scoop.it
The Roosevelts transformed the United States—and made its leaders into stars.
2 Cheney Emily's insight:

It all started when TR was about to give a speech and someone shot him. He refused to get help until his speech was over. He ended up talking for an hour and a half with a bullet in his rib.This caused Americans to view him as some superhuman and they, from that point on, decided that every president should be that way. FDR was another one who made the people think that presidents should act as human and superhumans at the same time. It was the Roosevelts that made presidents celebrities because of all the things they accomplished, so it was just expected. A president is supposed to be a leader and someone you want to sit down with and have a chat with now a days.

2 Cheney Emily's insight:

Article II is about the Executive Branch. In 1800 it was the House of Reps. that chose the President  if no one won the electoral college. It is an example of indirect democracy and it shows the founders distrust of democracy. The Presidents implied are for when he does something not specifically delegated in the constitution.

CNN: 'Gerrymandering' the movie - YouTube

A new documentary looks at the firestorm issue of redistricting as midterm elections near.
2 Cheney Emily's insight:

Gerrymandering is when they manipulate the boundaries of (an electoral constituency) so as to favor one party or class. They're stating that they don't think people in politics should be able to pick their own constituents. They compared it to toddlers being left in a room with a bunch of cookie jars and telling them not to touch the jars.

OpenSecrets.org has fundraising profiles for all 535 members of Congress (and more).
2 Cheney Emily's insight:

An earmark is what people in Congress use to provide federal funding to companies, projects, groups and organizations, often in their district. I chose Republican C. W. Bill Young from Fl. He sponsored or co-sponsored 64 earmarks totaling $128,834,000 in fiscal year 2010 ranking 4th out of 435 representatives.

2 Cheney Emily's insight:

This is about Civil Rights and the 1950s. The 1950s was known as a consensus Culture. The economy was growing during the 1950s. The key problem with the 1950s was that they believed in equal opportunity but they didn't actually provide it. The Civil Rights movement Started dining WWII even though people think  it Started with Rosa Parks.  Plessy v. Furguson stated that people should be separate but equal but Brown V. Board overturned it.  Brown V. Board ended segregation in all public places.

The Week Mike Pence’s 2016 Dreams Crumbled

The Week Mike Pence’s 2016 Dreams Crumbled | 2 Cheney Emily | Scoop.it
With the black marble of the Indiana House of Representatives behind him, Gov. Mike Pence in January trumpeted a laundry list of accomplishments achieved in the first half of his first term: Two balanced budgets. A falling unemployment rate. More than 100,000 new jobs created. It seemed the predicate for a potential 2016 run. Basking in the glow of...
2 Cheney Emily's insight:

Gov. Mike Pence had everything good going for him. He had several things being accomplished in just the beginning of his term. Then everything changed. He just recently signed Senate Bill 101, the controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act, in a behind-closed-doors ceremony on March 26. This caused controversy and didn't make too many people happy. It already has collateral damage. He has recently stated that he doesn't regret signing the bill into law. He was looking good as a presidential candidate but after this things aren't looking so good. His hopes and dreams for 2016 may be down the toilet.

US Environmental Protection Agency

US Environmental Protection Agency | 2 Cheney Emily | Scoop.it
2 Cheney Emily's insight:

The person who is the head of this agency is Administrator Gina McCarthy. They focus on Air, Climate Change, Waste, etc. I think they are independent from Congress and the Pres b/c they handle things that is out of the legislation of the Pres. and Congress. One issue they are focusing on right now is waste. They tell you how you can recycle and reuse so you don't create waste. They have diff links to things that have to do with waste.

C-SPAN Survey of Presidential Leadership - Overall Ranking - C-SPAN

2 Cheney Emily's insight:

FDR is ranked 3rd overall and I also think that he was the best president. He did so much and he never let his disability get in the way of him running the country. I think he was loved by many. He was ranked first in public persuasion which I feel is very accurate. He did his job and he did it well. He didn't try and meet in the middle with Congress he did his duty and didn't sit back and let his presidency go to waste. He even served 4 terms in office.

The White House Is No Place for Wimps

The White House Is No Place for Wimps | 2 Cheney Emily | Scoop.it
Lyndon Johnson got things done. Yes, he was a visionary—the architect of sweeping social and economic programs that transformed life in the United States and that still shape our nation today. But in the many hours I spent working for LBJ, I saw that he had much more than big ideas: He knew how to make them happen. How to trade, to cajole, to...
2 Cheney Emily's insight:

This article is saying that if Presidents want to go down in history they need to be bold. Most presidents want to meet in the middle to get things done but that usually means they don't get much done. TR, FDR, and LBJ all made the middle "come to them." They were the three presidents that really got things done and didn't let their time in office waste. LBJ decided to not play it safe and only please his political adversaries, he decided to go for it and take a chance and get things done. That's what this article is saying. Wimps don't get anything done in office because they don't take a chance.

2 Cheney Emily's insight:

This game was pretty fun and very interesting. I decided to be in the Senate. I wanted to pass a bill on transportation for those who were in need of it. I got the majority of my party to agree with me and i also got the House to agree with me. It then went to the President and he signed it. It turned out to be great for me. It wasn't that hard of a game and i really enjoyed it. I feel like making a bill become a law in real life is no where near that easy and it does take a lot of work.

2 Cheney Emily's insight:

The term Filibuster basically means "robber or pirate." It was used to describe William Walker who led a group to revolt and he wanted to take over the government. He was successful for a while. There are two types of filibusters in the U.S. Senate today. The first is called a silent filibuster. They use filibusters to keep a bill from passing but they can use a cloture motion to "override" the filibuster and get the bill voted on. The second filibuster is called a talking filibuster. It says that one person can keep talking for as long as they want but they can't take a break or sit down. Wayne Morse set a record for filibustering for 22 hours and 26 minutes but in 1957 Senator Strom Thurmond broke his record for filibustering The Civil Rights Act for 24 hours and 18 minutes, which remains unbroken to this day.

Election Other - Congressional Job Approval

Election Other - Congressional Job Approval | 2 Cheney Emily | Scoop.it
RealClearPolitics Polls
2 Cheney Emily's insight:

The current approval rating for Congress is 18.2%. I think that even though the approval rating is so low for Congress, people will still reelect incumbents because they have to agree with what they're doing somewhat of the time. The Framers built a Congress that would be so unpopular bc federalism.
