SD Republican Party votes to impeach Obama

Impeaching President Barack Obama is a long-standing desire for many, but delegates for the South Dakota Republican Party decided to act instead of merely wish. In a 191-176 vote in favor of impeachment, delegates voiced their approval Saturday for removing from office the 44th president of the United States. Citing what the delegates claim are numerous violations of the oath of office, the resolution calls for Representatives in the House “to initiate impeachment proceedings.” RT’s Ameera David speaks with Robert Burgess, communications director for the South Dakota Republican Party, to learn more about the vote.

Dan Pfeiffer: “POTUS Replies”

 

 

This morning, Senior Advisor Dan Pfeiffer sent the message below to the White House email list to share the story of Rebekah — a hardworking mom from Minneapolis who wrote the President to share her story, and will meet with him later this week.

Didn’t get the email? Be sure to sign up.


Hi, all –

Every day, the Office of Presidential Correspondence sorts through thousands of letters. Every night, President Obama reads ten of them. Some people write to share what his decisions mean in their daily lives, to talk about the economy, or to ask a question about a policy. Others just write in to say hello.

Each letter is a chance for President Obama to hear directly from folks across the country about the sorts of issues they face every day.

The President makes notes in the margins, and sits down to reply personally. He often sends the letters to the staff as reminder of what we are fighting for or to ask us to follow up on an issue raised in the letter. So when Rebekah, a hardworking mom from Minneapolis, wrote in to share how much harder it’s become to get ahead and do right by her family, you can bet the President set that letter aside for a reply.

But he’s not just doing that. He’s meeting Rebekah in person this Thursday to spend a day in her shoes. Watch President Obama tell her story, and find out why he’s traveling to her town.

 

When the President travels to Minnesota, he’ll launch the first in a series of “day-in-the-life” visits across the country this summer. He’ll spend a day with Rebekah — and he’ll meet with her family and community members to discuss the issues that matter to them, host a town hall, and talk about the steps we need to take as a country to help more Americans like Rebekah get ahead.

I know the President is excited to talk with her — and Americans like her. So all this summer, he’ll meet with folks who’ve written in to share what their lives are like. He’ll be hitting the road and traveling to communities across the country — sitting around diner booths and kitchen tables to talk about the issues that matter to them.

Rebekah’s story is representative of the experiences of millions of Americans: Even though our economy’s made a historic comeback, too many middle-class Americans are still stretched too thin, and there’s more work to do.

Make sure you see Rebekah’s story — and then tune in on Thursday as the President travels to Minnesota.

 

 

A Letter to the President: Rebekah

 

Published on Jun 23, 2014

The President reads a letter from Rebekah, a hardworking mom from Minneapolis who wrote to the President about what she sees, what she thinks needs changing, and her struggle to get ahead. The President chose to highlight Rebekah’s story because it is representative of the experiences of millions of Americans: While our economy’s made a comeback, too many Americans are still stretched too thin and the President knows there’s more work to do.

Here’s What You Missed: The White House Summit on Working Families

Yesterday, the White House, in partnership with the Department of Labor and the Center for American Progress, hosted a Summit on Working Families with the aim of having a national conversation and set a concrete agenda to bring American workplaces into the 21st century.

 

That conversation brought together businesses, economists, labor leaders, legislators, advocates, and working citizens to talk through the very real issues facing the full spectrum of working families — from low-wage workers to executives.

 

And you didn’t have to be in Washington to participate join in. Americans across the country tuned in and raised their voices online.

 

As Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett noted yesterday: “This is a movement, not a moment.” So if you missed the event yesterday, you can still add your voice. Take a look at our recap of yesterday’s Summit, and if you’ve got a story tell — get involved.

Senate Delays Hurting Our National Security

 

 

As the President’s National Security Advisor, I am focused every day on keeping our country secure and our citizens – at home and abroad – safe. But these goals are hindered and our stature abroad is weakened when we are not fielding a full team. That’s why I urge the Senate to let the President’s qualified ambassadorial nominees get to work on behalf of the American people.

Right now, 48 nominees for ambassador are pending and 26 are on the Executive Calendar and eligible for confirmation by the full Senate – 16 of whom are career Foreign Service Officers. Together, all ambassadorial nominees have been waiting an average of 161 days, while those on the Executive Calendar have been waiting an average of 262 days. This is simply too long.

These crucial posts are vacant and American interests are therefore underrepresented. The longer we wait to fill these roles the harder it becomes to maintain our effective American diplomacy.

ambassadors10

 

Consider:

  • Kuwait borders Iraq and is a vital strategic partner that requires the highest level engagement given the current situation. Yet our post there remains without an ambassador. Now more than ever, it is crucial that our ambassador to the State of Kuwait is confirmed.

 

  • In Africa, a quarter of our ambassadors are awaiting Senate confirmation. And in combating regional instability and serious challenges such as Boko Haram, key partners including Niger, Cameroon, and Mauritania – as well as our delegation to the African Union – need ambassadors in place now. And with the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit planned for later this summer, it’s crucial that we display our commitment to partnering with leaders from across the continent for the good of Africa and the United States.

 

  • ASEAN will play a crucial role in the East Asia Summit in November 2014, which the President will attend. Substantively and organizationally, we need an ambassador in place to lay the groundwork for a successful Summit. We need a leading voice in our seat at the ASEAN table as tensions in the region have escalated surrounding China’s actions in the South China Sea.

These are only a few of many reasons it is critical to our national security that America fields a full team in our global engagement. The qualified individuals nominated to serve our country need to be confirmed without delay and allowed to do their important work leading our complex and vital interagency teams that are working to protect American interests around the world.

While there is a potential path to confirmation without bipartisan support, our nation’s security is stronger when we act together, and so I call on all members of the Senate to agree to confirm these nominees today so we can get them in place now.

Sylvia Mathews Burwell Sworn In as the New HHS Secretary

This afternoon, the Vice President ceremonially swore in Sylvia Mathews Burwell as the new Secretary of Health and Human Services.

On June 5, Secretary Burwell was confirmed by a strong, bipartisan majority of Senators. In a statement that day, President Obama commended the Senate and reiterated his support for Secretary Burwell as a proven manager:

 

I applaud the strong, bipartisan majority of Senators who today confirmed Sylvia Mathews Burwell as America’s next Secretary of Health and Human Services. Sylvia is a proven manager who knows how to deliver results, and over her career she has built deep relationships with Democrats and Republicans alike. I’m confident Sylvia’s unparalleled experience will serve her well in her new role as she works to ensure the safety of our food and drug supply, protect our nation from outbreaks or bioterror attacks, keep America at the forefront of medical research, and make sure every American has access to quality, affordable healthcare.

FACT SHEET: Advancing The Human Rights Of LGBT Persons Globally

Remarks by National Security Advisor Susan E. Rice at the White House Forum on Global LGBT Human Rights

It’s great to be here, and particularly great to see such a wonderful collection of faith leaders, human rights activists, private sector representatives and colleagues in government all in one place.  Protecting and upholding human rights, especially for our lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender brothers and sisters, is work to which we all are called, so thank you, thank you so much for joining us here today.

 

The inexhaustible pursuit of equality, the drive to expand opportunity, the unshakeable conviction that human dignity and human rights are the natural endowment of all humankind—these are qualities that are fundamental to our American character.  For many Americans, they are also essential to our personal story.  I would not be standing here today if those who came before me had not pried open doors that had long been shut to people who look like me.  So, I feel a responsibility and a personal passion to help others enjoy the same opportunities that I have been blessed to receive.  It’s what drives me as a public servant and as a mother, because I do not want my children, or anyone else’s, to have their life choices limited by how they look, who they worship, or whom they love.

 

Universal human rights are not bestowed by governments or powerful majorities, they are God’s gift and the birth right of all people.  They belong to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender men and women as surely as they belong to anyone in the human family.  As President Obama has said so eloquently, “If we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.”

 

It offends our common humanity when men or women anywhere in the world are beaten or abused, or when individuals anywhere have their rights restricted because of who they are.  And, it doesn’t just harm those who are targeted.  It rends the bonds that knit society together.  Trust recedes; suspicion spreads.  Entire countries are deprived of vital contributions from citizens in minority groups.

ConnectED: A Year of Action for American Students and Teachers

One year ago, President Obama unveiled his ConnectED initiative to empower students and teachers with technology in the classroom. The President called on businesses, states, districts, schools, and communities to support this vision, and through the power of his pen and phone, he is building momentum and we are seeing results.

 

Over the past year, the President has worked with the private sector to catalyze impactful commitments of free hardware, software, educational content, and wireless connectivity — amounting to over $2 billion in value for American schools.

 

On top of that, Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Tom Wheeler has pledged to invest an additional $2 billion to connect 20 million more students to fast broadband and wireless in their classrooms over the next two years. Taken together, this represents more than $4 billion in public and private support starting this calendar year.

 

This investment is the shot of adrenaline our schools need to surge into the 21st century. It is a major down payment on providing every child in America with the high-quality teaching and technological skills that they deserve, and the economy demands.

And we are keeping our foot on the accelerator.

 

Today, we are announcing that the 10 companies who have made ConnectED commitments are making those private funding resources available to schools across the country, and information about these and other resources will be accessible through a new ConnectED Hub.

Shannon Watts, Everytown for Gun Safety: Moms target TARGET

 

Thanks to you, pressure is quickly building on Target to end open carry of guns in their stores.

 

Can you take a quick minute to share the image below on Facebook or on Twitter so that Target knows we’re counting on them to do the right thing?

 

In the last two weeks, here’s what moms and other gun sense supporters have accomplished:

 

  • We’ve collected more than 250,000 petition signatures to Target’s CEO, John Mulligan.
  • Moms and other amazing volunteers have delivered these petitions to 20 stores in 16 states — from Iowa to California.
  • More than 5,000 people have called Target headquarters to demand action from the company’s leadership.

 

We even showed up outside Target’s shareholder meeting in Dallas yesterday to make sure they know we aren’t going away. Thanks to you, the pressure is on and momentum is building.

 

Take a look at some of the photos from our day of action below:

This Target campaign is just like the previous campaigns you’ve helped win — getting big corporations to adopt smarter policies that keep their customers safe — like you and me and our families.

 

With the right pressure, Target will heed our call. We just can’t let up until they do.

 

Thanks for standing with us,
