Tammany controlled many city organizations through favoritism, bribery, and bias. The most prominent city organization controlled by Tammany Hall was the police department. At the time, the New York City Board of Police Commissioners consisted of four members who were under Tammany’s control while having the authority of overseeing the city’s police. One of their many corrupt acts was the use of their authority in order to get Tammany Hall members jobs on the force or promotions for those already in the department.
Bush successfully uses logos throughout this speech. Bush is very direct with the statements he uses to prove his points and to stand firm for America. Bush is very clear that the events that took place on 9/11 will not have a lasting effect on the American people. He states, “we will stand together to win the war against terrorism” (Bush, 2001, para.
It displays him professionally sitting in his oval office, with the American and Presidential flag framing him at his desk. The symbolism of patriotism and power seen in this image are affecting the audience in believing that anything Bush would say that evening would be official and be true to the people. For example, “ we will make no distinction between the terrorist who committed these act and those who harbor them.” Based on Bush’s statement about seeking out those who committed the attacks as well as the ones who helped shows that he understands there is no moral distinction between the two. The criminals that committed the attack are just as evil as the ones that helped to plan it out. Therefore his threat is credible in the sense that he is President of the United states and he has the resources to back up his statement. Another example would when he says, “Tonight i ask for your prayers for all those who grieve.” Bush incorporated ethos into the speech by asking the audience to pray for those who grieve. This is ethical because prayer is apart of his moral beliefs. And using this collectively creates the sense of
Political cartoons are an illustrative technique that political cartoonist use to display a message to the viewers about government, world affairs, and politics. In 1754, publishers of the Pennsylvania Gazette published the first political cartoon illustrated by Benjamin Franklin (West, par. 1). Benjamin Franklin used his first political cartoon, titled Join or Die, to gain support from the colonies for the Crown’s war against the French (West, par. 1). Since the 1700s, illustrators use political cartoons as a medium to display political messages to its viewers (West, par. 1). On March 10, 2015, publishers of the Columbia Daily Tribune published a political cartoon, illustrated by John Darkow, titled Hillary Has A Primary Opponent (Darkow,
In her untitled 2015 cartoon published on cartoonstgroup.com, Lisa Benson created a cartoon, that features a team mascot , referrer and a football thats says 2015 Game Ball on it. The cartoon shows a “game ball” that appears to be over inflated. The referrer on the right of the “game ball” is checking the balls pressure and goes to say “I think the pressure is fine”. The team mascot who happens to be an Elephant wearing a red jersey, with white pants, and holding his helmet in his left hand. The mascot has an angered face that is intend for the referrer who is wearing a smirk upon his
The artist who made this cartoon, Doug Davis, is trying to show the audience how poor our current jury selection can be. Jurors often lack interest and jump to conclusions quickly. The artist also portrays how most jurors are not well informed about the crime. For example one of the jurors in the cartoon says “The defendant looks guilty”. The artist is trying to show how this juror is judging to quickly without any evidence or other jurors opinions. Other jurors in the cartoon are letting their personal opinions and private lives influence their decision. For instance the juror says “I’m not prejudice, but I’ve had problems with his ethnic group”. Overall, the artist is trying to depict the flaws in jury selection. The artist is suggesting
The cartoon above by Pat Bagley of the Salt Lake Tribune makes a bold generalization of white American police officers discriminating against civilians by their ethnicity, particularly African-Americans, a grave problem that has sparked nationwide protest of civil rights cases, including the Ferguson case and the Zimmerman case. Judging by the different elements in this cartoon, Bagley is attacking white police officers for their hostility towards Americans of African descent in contrast to their general acceptance of people with their own skin color. The artist divides his cartoons into 2 distinct, opposite halves. One, titled “Officer Friendly” depicts a police officer (presumably white) riding in a shiny police car waving his hand in greeting
Trump, with a question mark over head, is being dragged by a school shooter survivor who carries a paper reading “Assault Weapons Ban.” The annoyed survivor portrays a child who, instead of being directed by an adult, must lead Trump into the direction that bans assault weapons. In Trump's hand is a reminder sheet, which was recently exposed during the listening session with Florida victims, that reads “Nod, Try to listen, Don’t make it about you.” The exaggeration represents Trump's lack of empathy towards the shooting; The original sheet was “I hear you.” If the paper was not enough depiction failed affinity, in the back pocket of the presidents trousers is a large sum of money and a falling note from
The gestures of both presidents are very vibrant and visible. Bush has his eyes squinted, wrinkles in forehead, nostrils opened, and mouth open in a downward motion; therefore, its apparent that he’s ready to attack. His gesture enhances humor because when presidents are dealing with controversies, they are serious, and in most cases trying to influence the audience. Obama’s eyes are closed, eyebrows raised, mouth closed in a downward motion, and his hands are crossed, giving the impression that he is actively listening. Bush’s gesture adds to the meaning of the cartoon because it supports the fact, that he is inclined to take charge against any country. He does not sit calmly and review documents, like Obama does. Gesture enhances the humor
In addition to this, Chicane has in the upper right-hand corner ‘Trump has his finger on the button.’ In only seven words, Mr. Winter is able to portrait a powerful sketch on the future of the world in the hands of the current administration. People from across the political spectrum have agreed that Mr. Trump’s mannerisms and behavior is not only grotesque, but also self-destructive. With his impulse and urge to bring about radical change, the meaning behind this cartoon sketch may not be so
Declination in American economic value has steadily taken over, without notice to the addictions that are the driving force. In the United States of America, the usage of petroleum, the production of petroleum to contend with erratic use, and the employment variance stemming from this industry have become a dependence that is slowly killing our nation. In the cartoon published by Frankie Boyle he uses the statue of liberty and petroleum, as a symbol of a drug addict and their dependency of their used substance, to demonstrate America’s problem with petroleum and the war in Iraq.
In the poum, No Short Cuts, Mr.Carter was trying to tell the reader that there's no point in taking the easy way out because the best part of a trip is the jury and you'll just miss out. My classmates thought I did a good job and they said I like how you showed the lesson by showing how short cuts can be bad,and I like the way you showed the lesson by showing him sleeping instead of doing his homework. Another one of my classmates said I like how you did the computer and the video game. Something I need to work on is not to draw stick figures and put more colors.
Bush is seen with a big smile showing possible happiness and excitement about what is happening and coming in his life. His eyes are looking at the camera with endearment and an inviting look that he is open to others. His lips have no curling and his nostrils are not flared so there seems to be no animosity and he only has a calm and joyful presence. Bush’s face in this portrait is a good representation of his overall happy and upbeat personality that most people are used to seeing. Through photography, Platon Antoniou is able to show the personal and emotional side of world leaders who are otherwise seen as some sort of monolithic structure in
