South Dakota Republican Party Passes Resolution Calling For Obama’s Impeachment

Representatives to initiate impeachment proceedings against the president of the United States,” the resolution reads, according to the Argus Leader. Allen Unruh, the delegate who image source sponsored the resolution, said he had a “thick book on impeachable offenses of the president.” He called on South Dakota to “send a symbolic message that liberty shall be the law of the land.” Talk of impeaching the president even made a return to Capitol Hill this week, when, after a discussion about immigration reform, Rep. Lou Barletta (R-Penn.) claimed that the House could “probably” impeach Obama if the matter was brought to the floor. “You know, the problem is, you know, what do you do for those that say, ‘Impeach him for breaking the laws or bypassing the laws’?” Barletta said in a June 16 interview. “You know, could that pass in the House? It probably could.

Obama expands government benefits for gay couples – Yahoo News

Right now the problem with ISIS is the fact that theyre destabilizing the country, Obama said, using a common acronym for the group. That could spill over into some of our allies like Jordan. The Sunni insurgency in Iraq and neighboring Syria is just one of an array of threats the U.S. must guard against, Obama said in an interview recorded Friday and airing Sunday on CBS Face the Nation. He pointed to the group Boko Haram in north Africa and al-Qaida groups in Yemen that he said also demand the attention of the U.S. and its partners. What we cant do is think that were just going to play whack-a-mole and send U.S. troops occupying various countries wherever these organizations pop up, Obama said.

Obama: Iraqi militants could destabilize region

The two will celebrate their 47th anniversary in August but until now would have been prevented from accessing each other’s benefits. “If I was to die, it would be really significant for Ken,” Sagen said in an interview. “Not only is it financially beneficial, but psychologically it’s beneficial. It’s nice to know that your relationship is recognized.” Meanwhile, the Labor Department said it would start drafting rules making clear that the Family and Medical Leave Act applies to same-sex couples, ensuring that gay and lesbian workers can take unpaid leave to care for a sick spouse. Attorney General Eric Holder, in a memo to Obama, said the Justice Department has completed its government-wide push to carry out the high court’s 2013 ruling in United States v. Windsor that struck down part of the Defense of Marriage Act, enabling the federal government to start granting benefits to married same-sex couples.

Best- And Worst-Performing Cloud Computing Stocks June 2nd To June 6th And Year-To-Date – Forbes

10K invested june 6

Its ironic that one of the most complex enterprise software companies in the world has chosen a message of simplicity. Even SAP CEO Bill McDermott acknowledged the irony . While I didnt attend the event, I watched the keynote online. There have been many blog posts and articles written about the event. Two of the best ones include Dennis Howletts excellent post on Diginomica , SAPPHIRE Now 2014 SAPs positioning challenge as it simplifies everything and Pierre Mitchells entertaining, insightful analysis, Thoughts on Bill McDermotts SAP Keynote at Sapphire Now 2014 eBay, Ariba, Fieldglass, and More . SAPs simplicity hype makes me think of a favorite Ben Franklin quote, Well done is better than well said.

The RS line moved above its WMA in March of this year (point 1). This was confirmed by bottoming action in the daily RS analysis and that is another reason why multiple time frame RS analysis is important. The weekly OBV has been leading prices higher since early in 2013 as it has made a series of higher highs. It broke out in early 2014 so prices were also likely to also break out to the upside. The monthly OBV (not shown) has made new highs each of the past three months and is well above its rising WMA.

Obama Turns To Tech Leaders For Cash For Democrats | Reuters

(Reuters) – President Barack Obama warned tech leaders on Thursday to dig deep in their wallets to fund Democratic candidates and feel a sense of urgency about congressional elections in November or risk further gridlock in Washington and a failure to move on their priorities. Obama was the headline speaker at four California fund-raising events, raising his two-day total to five. His last was a Silicon Valley event in San Jose co-hosted by Y Combinator President Sam Altman and Yahoo Inc CEO Marissa Mayer. About 250 people paid between $1,000 and $32,400 to attend. During his remarks, Obama struck at the heart of the issue that Republicans are using against Democrats in their campaigns: The Affordable Care Act, the Obamacare law whose troubled rollout has given Obama’s political opponents much grist for criticism.

President Obama is showcasing Wal-Mart, often a target of labor groups and other Democratic constituencies, to promote advances in energy efficiency in his broader campaign to confront climate change. Obama on Friday was to announce commitments from more than 300 companies and local and state governments to use solar energy technology. He also was announcing executive actions aimed at increasing energy efficiency in buildings and appliances. The White House says the solar effort will power the equivalent of 130,000 homes and the administrative actions could reduce carbon pollution in an amount equal to taking 80 million cars off the road for one year. ADVERTISEMENT ADVERTISEMENT The White House chose Wal-Mart because the company has committed to doubling the number of solar energy projects at its stores, Sam’s Clubs and distribution centers.

Obama’s choice of Wal-Mart draws fire

(Photo11: Martha Irvine, AP) SHARE11 21 CONNECT11 36 TWEET11 1 LinkedIn11 4 COMMENT11EMAIL11 President Obama’s supporters generally like his energy program, but some don’t like the location of his energy speech on Friday: A Wal-Mart in northern California . “Wal-Mart is one of the nation’s largest and worst employers — low wages, unreliable hours, few benefits, discrimination against women, and anti-union,” said former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich in a Facebook posting. In a post entitled “Department of Ill-Advised Photo Opportunities,” Reich asked: “What numbskull in the White House arranged this?” Pam Ramos, who has worked at Mountain View, Calif., Walmart for four years, said that “when I heard President Obama was visiting my store, I wanted to tell him what income inequality really looks like — right here working at a company that made $17 billion last year.” In an op-ed for Salon , Ramos said she brings home about $400 every two weeks, and “that’s not enough to pay for bills, gas and food. All I can afford to eat for lunch is a cup of coffee and a bag of potato chips.” Wal-Mart says its wages and benefits are competitive in the retail industry. White House officials said Walmart on Friday will commit to double the number of on-site solar energy projects at its U.S.
