Larry Craig scandal – Wikipedia

Posted on

Craig’s official Senate Portrait.

The Larry Craig scandal was an incident that began on June 11, 2007, with the arrest of Craig, who at the time was a Republican United States Senator from Idaho, for lewd conduct in a men’s restroom at the Minneapolis–St. Paul International Airport. Craig later entered a guilty plea to a lesser charge of disorderly conduct on August 8.[1]

As a result of the controversy surrounding his arrest, subsequent guilty plea, and pressure from his fellow Republicans,[2][3][4] Craig announced his intention to resign from the Senate at a news conference on September 1, which was to become effective on September 30. After Craig’s efforts to withdraw his guilty plea failed, on October 4, he released a statement refusing to resign from the Senate. Craig did not run for re-election in 2008 and the incident effectively ended his political career.

Garden of Eden – Wikipedia

Posted on

biblical “garden of God”

The Garden of Eden (Hebrew: גַּן־עֵדֶןgan-ʿḖḏen), also called Paradise, is the biblical “garden of God” described in the Book of Genesis and the Book of Ezekiel.[2][3] Genesis 13:10 refers to the “garden of God”,[4] and the “trees of the garden” are mentioned in Ezekiel 31.[5][5] The Book of Zechariah and the Book of Psalms also refer to trees and water, without explicitly mentioning Eden.[6]

The name derives from the Akkadian edinnu, from a Sumerian word edin meaning “plain” or “steppe”, closely related to an Aramaic root word meaning “fruitful, well-watered”.[3] Another interpretation associates the name with a Hebrew word for “pleasure”; thus the Douay-Rheims Bible in Genesis 2:8 has the wording
“And the Lord God had planted a paradise of pleasure”, rather than “a garden in Eden”. The Hebrew term is translated “pleasure” in

Kitchen Cabinet – Wikipedia

Posted on

The Kitchen Cabinet was a term used by political opponents of President of the United States Andrew Jackson to describe his ginger group, the collection of unofficial advisors he consulted in parallel to the United States Cabinet (the “parlor cabinet”) following his purge of the cabinet at the end of the Eaton affair and his break with Vice President John C. Calhoun in 1831.[1][2]

Coinage[edit]

Secretary of State Martin Van Buren was a widower, and since he had no wife to become involved in the Eaton controversy he managed to avoid becoming entangled himself. In 1831 he resigned his cabinet post, as did Secretary of War John Eaton, in order to give Jackson a reason to re-order his cabinet and dismiss Calhoun allies. Jackson then dismissed Calhounites Samuel D. Ingham, John Branch, and John M. Berrien. Van Buren, whom Jackson had already indicated he wanted

Interior minister – Wikipedia

Posted on

An interior ministry (sometimes called ministry of internal affairs or ministry of home affairs) is a government ministry typically responsible for policing, emergency management, national security, registration, supervision of local governments, conduct of elections, public administration and immigration matters. Such a ministry is often headed by a minister of the interior, a minister of internal affairs or a minister of home affairs. In some countries, matters relating to the maintenance of law and order and the administration of justice are the responsibility of a separate justice ministry.

In some countries, policing and national security belong to a separate ministry (often titled “ministry of public order”, “ministry of security” etc.), with the interior ministry being limited to control over local governments, public administration, elections etc. Notable examples include Greece (Ministry of Citizen Protection) and Israel (Ministry of Public Security).

In countries with a federal constitution, interior ministers will
