Religion should therefore be considered as the first of their [Americans] political institutions. From the start, politics and religion have agreed and have not since ceased to do so. — Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America, 1835

One of the more noteworthy resolutions presented to the general assembly of the South Dakota GOP Convention in Rapid City today by the Resolutions Committee was one on “Impeachment of President Obama.”

It said:

WHEREAS, The president of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama has taken an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States and protect it from all enemies both foreign and domestic,

WHEREAS, The president has violated his oath of office in numerous ways with the latest being the release of five terrorists in exchange for a soldier without consulting Congress as required by law,

WHEREAS, The president of the United States has willfully and wantonly lied to the American people telling them they can keep their insurance company, and they can keep their doctor under Obama Care, prior to an election,

WHEREAS, The president has ordered Federal Agencies to enact rules (laws) that threaten the security of the people of this great nation (EPA regulations) by passing Congress and usurping its authority,

WHEREAS, the president has abused his executive privilege usurping his authority as decided by numerous federal courts,

WHEREAS, The Constitution and Declaration of Independence are very clear on the authority of the President and the Federal Government, and when they violate their oath it is the right, it is the duty of the American people to act,

WHEREAS, America was designed as a Lex Rex (the law is king) rather than a Rex Lex (The King is the law) system of government. It is a government of the people, by the people and for the people.

THEREFORE, be it resolved that the South Dakota Republican Party calls on our U.S. Representatives to initiate impeachment proceedings against the president of the United States.

One delegate spoke against the amendment, claiming this was for “political purposes” and that “treason” or other constitutionally specified offenses would be required to justify impeachment. The delegate claimed no crime or treason was committed by Obama.

A retired Marine spoke in favor of the amendment, stating he still held his oath to the Constitution sacred, and said that he would pray for anyone who could not recognize the treasonous offenses of President Obama.

Another delegate agreed with the Marine regarding the oath he took and that she took, and said that the actions mentioned in the resolution constituted treason.

When the voice vote was taken, the chair was in doubt so a roll call was taken. In the Pennington County delegation, “Republican” South Dakota Speaker of the House Brian Gosch stood in opposition to the resolution to impeach President Obama.

The total vote count was 191 in favor, 176 opposed. The resolution passed.

Islam

Just Islam

Victor Sharpe

The irrevocable Islamic and Koranic injunction upon all Muslims is to wage relentless war against any non-Muslim nation state that exists within what Islam decrees as the Dar al-Islam (the House of Islam). Wherever the Muslim foot has trod triumphal in the name of Allah, that territory is considered eternally Islamic land. If it is lost, then it enters the Dar al-Harb (the House of War) and must be retaken and the population either forcibly converted to Islam, forced into dhimmi degradation, or exterminated.

Despite liberal howls, Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling was right

Star Parker

Why exactly is it that Democrats find the Hobby Lobby decision so outrageous that in America religious freedom is respected? That we have law – The Religious Freedom Restoration Act under which the owners of Hobby Lobby sued the federal government – that assures that no federal law will substantially burden individuals in the practice of their religion. Paying for contraception would violate the Christian principles of Hobby Lobby’s owners.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
