1 SSUSH25 The student will describe changes in national politics since 1968.
2 a. Describe President Richard M. Nixon s opening of China, his resignation due to the Watergate scandal, changing attitudes toward government, and the Presidency of Gerald Ford. Though Nixon was anti-communist, he believed that the only way to create a peaceful world was to build a better relationship with China and Russia He lifted trade and travel restrictions with China Nixon traveled to China in 1972, becoming the first President to visit the country Nixon hoped that the visit to China would force Russia to open peaceful talks with the U.S.
3 Watergate In 1972 President Nixon began his reelection campaign Fearing that various political issues might cause him to lose, some of Nixon s campaign staff began spying on his opponent In June 1972, five men linked to Nixon s campaign, were arrested breaking into the Democratic Party s headquarters in the Watergate Hotel
4 Watergate The men were attempting to steal campaign information and tap the phones Nixon began to cover up any connection between his staff and the break in, ordering the CIA to stop the FBI s investigation The President denied any wrong doing and eventually won reelection By June of 1973 it was revealed that Nixon had installed a taping system in the Oval Office to record conversations that he had hoped to use to write a book after he left office
5 Watergate Nixon refused to turn the tapes over to prosecutors investigating the break-in but was eventually ordered to turn them over by the Supreme Court in 1974 With clear evidence of a Presidential cover-up on the tapes, the House began discussions to impeach Nixon In August of 1974, Nixon resigned from the Presidency leaving Gerald Ford, his Vice-President in command
6 b. Explain the impact of Supreme Court decisions on ideas about civil liberties and civil rights; include such decisions as Roe v. Wade (1973) and the Bakke decision on affirmative action. Roe v. Wade: The 1973 ruling held that women have the Constitutional right under certain circumstances to terminate a pregnancy under the 14 th Amendment, and the idea of privacy afforded under the Constitution University of California v Bakke: The 1978 ruling allowed schools to consider race while evaluating applications for admission to college for the purpose of diversity. The ruling was seen as support for affirmative action.
7 c. Explain the Carter administration s efforts in the Middle East; include the Camp David Accords, his response to the 1979 Iranian Revolution, and the Iranian hostage crisis. In 1978 President Carter helped to broker a peace agreement between Israel and Egypt, two Middle Eastern countries which had been bitter enemies. Israel is a Jewish country, Egypt is an Arab nation The peace treaty was known as the Camp David Accords
8 The Carter Administration and the crisis in Iran Iran, had long been supported by the U.S. due to it being a major oil supplier and because it was a buffer against Russian expansion Iran was headed by the Shah, who was becoming unpopular due to the westernization of Iran
9 Iran In 1979, Islamic extremist, headed by the Ayatollah Khomeini, forced the Shah to flee the country and took control, the Shah, who was ill, was allowed to receive medical treatment in the U.S. In response, revolutionaries, stormed the U.S. embassy and took 52 Americans hostage
10 Iran Unable to negotiate their release, Carter ordered a secret rescue attempt. The rescue attempt went terribly wrong when a U.S. helicopter and plane collided killing 8 soldiers during a dust storm The failed attempt made Carter look bad and would eventually lead to him losing the 1980 election The hostages were finally released on Carter s last day in office after being held for 444 days
11 d. Describe domestic and international events of Ronald Reagan s presidency; include Reaganomics, the Iran-contra scandal, and the collapse of the Soviet Union. Republican Ronald Reagan was elected President in 1980 One of his 1 st priorities in office was to try and fix the nation s economy Dubbed Reaganomics, Reagan s economic policy worked on the trickle down effect -Kept interest rates high -Passed a 25% tax cut -Cut some social programs -Deregulated government control
12 Reaganomics Reagan s deregulation led to price wars, lower prices, and increased spending by consumers Though Reagan s policy had many critics, by 1983 the U.S. economy was in full recovery
13 Reagan In 1979, communist rebels overthrew the U.S. supported government in Nicaragua, and began accepting aid from Cuba and Russia Why would the U.S. be concerned by a communist government in Nicaragua? Stopping the spread of Communism was called what?
14 Iran-Contra Scandal The Reagan administration began to secretly send aid to Nicaraguan rebels who wanted to overthrow the Communist government When Congress learned of this secret aid, it banned Reagan from sending further aid to the rebels Individuals within the Reagan administration secretly sold weapons to Iran (in return for American hostages) and sent the profits from the sales to the Nicaraguan rebels
15 Iran-Contra Scandal In 1986, Congress learned of the Iran-Contra connection and began an investigation Though Reagan approved the sale of arms to Iran, he was not informed about the aid going to Nicaragua
16 Collapse of the Soviet Union Reagan and Russian lead Mikhail Gorbachev met several times in 1987 agreeing to remove some nuclear weapons from Europe This agreement led Gorbachev to reduce Soviet spending on defense and aid to other communist controlled countries in Europe
17 Collapse of the Soviet Union When George Bush took office in 1988, he continued Reagan s friendly relationship with Gorbachev and Russia. In 1989, several former Soviet controlled countries were allowed to form non-communist governments In November of 1989, the Berlin Wall, which separated East and West Berlin was torn down Trying to save their Communist ways, Communist leaders and some Russian Army officers tried to overthrow Gorbachev Their coup was unsuccessful, and in December 1991, Gorbachev announced the end of the Soviet Union
19 e. Explain the relationship between Congress and President Bill Clinton; include the North American Free Trade Agreement and his impeachment and acquittal. President Clinton had a mixed relationship with Congress, which had a majority Republican membership Early on Clinton faced Congressional roadblocks on many of his proposed policies
20 North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) NAFTA was a means to open up freer world trade, and to drop trade barriers between the U.S., Canada, and Mexico Though Clinton faced some resistance from Democrats in Congress, he was able to gain the support of Republicans and get NAFTA approved
21 The Impeachment of President Clinton In January 1998 Clinton was linked to an improper relationship with a White House intern For the next 7 months Clinton denied a relationship ever existed between the two.
22 The Impeachment of President Clinton By mid August 1998, Clinton finally acknowledged that he had an inappropriate relationship By mid January 1999 the Senate began impeachment hearings against Clinton charging him with perjury and obstruction of justice In February 1999, the Senate acquitted Clinton of the charges Clinton became only the 2 nd President to face Impeachment
23 f. Analyze the 2000 presidential election and its outcome, emphasizing the role of the Electoral College. The 2000 Presidential election pitted Republican George W. Bush against Vice-President Al Gore For a person to win the Presidential election they must win 270 electoral votes Though Gore won the popular vote the electoral vote came down to the state of Florida The results were so close in Florida, that under state law, a recount had to be conducted
24 2000 Presidential Election By November 2000, the state of Florida, able to only count a percentage of the cast ballots, declared George Bush the winner by 537 votes.
25 2000 Presidential Election Al Gore then sued, arguing the results of the election Because of the importance of the case, and the fact that the Constitution requires the electoral vote be cast by a certain date, the case went immediately to the Supreme Court in Bush v. Gore The Court ruled in a 5-4 vote that there was insufficient time under the law for a full recount The ruling left George Bush the winner of the 2000 Presidential election
26 g. Analyze the response of President George W. Bush to the attacks of September 11, 2001, on the United States, the war against terrorism, and the subsequent American interventions in Afghanistan and Iraq.

27 Global War on Terrorism (GWOT) The attacks were quickly linked to a terrorist named Osama bin Laden and his group Al Qaeda President Bush ordered air strikes and ground troops into Afghanistan, where bin Laden kept his headquarters
28 Operation Enduring Freedom Operation Iraqi Freedom In 2003, Bush ordered an attack on Iraq and it s dictator Saddam Hussein, worried that the leader was supporting terrorists and keeping weapons of mass destruction US & Coalition Forces were involved until December 2011 when US Troops were removed from Iraq. However, Troops have remained in Afghanistan throughout the past decade and a half brought about a renewed military effort with the emergence of ISIS and other Radical Islamic & Terrorist Groups in the region.
