OUTRAGEOUS! Federal Appeals Court rules AGAINST Oklahoma legislature-approved/governor-signed ban on Sharia Law

pur39760125a1d95c05A proposed amendment to Oklahoma’s state constitution that would have prevented state courts from considering sharia (Islamic) and international law was struck down by a ‘dhimmi’ leftist federal judge on Thursday. This amendment was overwhelmingly approved by Oklahoma voters in 2010.

Chief Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrance, US District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma

HuffingtonPost  Chief District Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange of the Western District of Oklahoma, who issued a temporary restraining order preventing the law from taking effect after it passed in 2010, ruled Thursday that the amendment’s references to Sharia, or Islamic law, violated the Establishment Clause of the U.S. Constitution. (Why did the lawyers allow the same Muslim Brotherhood front group CAIR-friendly judge to rule on this case again?) While Oklahoma officials argued the amendment could be enacted if the reference to Sharia was removed, Miles-LaGrange ruled that wasn’t possible.

“Having reviewed the numerous statements by the legislators who authored the amendment, it is abundantly clear that the primary purpose of the amendment was to specifically target and outlaw Sharia law and to act as a preemptive strike against Sharia law to protect Oklahoma from a perceived ‘threat’ of Sharia law being utilized in Oklahoma courts,” she ruled.

Miles-LaGrange also found that Oklahoma voters wouldn’t have passed the constitutional amendment without the Sharia language, ruling that the “public debate, public discussions, articles, radio ads and robocalls regarding SQ 755 all primarily, and overwhelmingly, focused on the Sharia law provisions of the amendment” and that given that context, any reasonable voter would have thought the amendment was a referendum on Sharia.

It was an “undisputed fact” that “the concern that it seeks to address has yet to occur,” said Miles-LaGrange. “While the public has an interest in the will of the voters being carried out, the Court finds that the public has a more profound and long-term interest in upholding an individual’s constitutional rights,” she ruled.

The lawsuit against the constitutional amendment was filed by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) on behalf of the executive director of CAIR’s Oklahoma chapter, Muneer Awad.

Muneer Awad, the executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Oklahoma, sued to block the law from taking effect, arguing that the Save Our State Amendment violated his First Amendment rights.

“This is an important reminder that the Constitution is the last line of defense against a rising tide of anti-Muslim bigotry in our society, and we are pleased that the appeals court recognized that fact,” Awad said. “We are also hopeful that this decision serves as a reminder to politicians wishing to score political points through fear-mongering and bigotry.”

“This law unfairly singled out one faith and one faith only,” said Ryan Kiesel, executive director of the ACLU of Oklahoma. “This amendment was nothing more than a solution in search of a problem. We’re thrilled that it has been struck down.”

  1. don’t understand what laGrange ruled. she contridicted herself in her rulinmg
    ‘While the public has and interest in the will of the voters being carried the Court
    finds that the public has a profound and long term interest in upholding a person contitutional rights
    i hope this is appealed to the Supreme Court. it is outrageous that Sharia law which no sane person wants is now imposed in Oklahoma
    Awad talks of a rise in anti-muslim bigotry in this country. geez what so you think would happen? that we would go quietly into the night?
    i hope the voters in oklahoma remember this. Appeals court judges are elected. and this judge needs to be replaced

    • 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver — the MOST CONSERVATIVE court in the country — upheld LaGrange’s initial injunction, which as a rule of law, was ROCK SOLID for reasons I listed.

      Please review all my other posts and you will CLEARLY UNDERSTAND my legal reasoning and why the 2013 bill SIGNED INTO LAW by Governor Fallin remedies the whole issue, makes 2010 and the Judge’s actions all a MOOT POINT, and neuters CAIR, barring them from filing any legal challenges, as no religious or ethnic groups are mentioned in the NEW AND PERFECTED LAW that other states are taking the lead from. North Carolina is about to sign the law unless Pat McCrory buckles to the hairless pussies of CAIR.

      Oklahoma’s law takes effect November 1st. ***

      • SemperFi2088, can you please contact me, I’ve had a hard time trying to figure out where this case has gone since 2010, I guess because of media cover-up, or refusal to report. Even today, this is the most recent website I’ve found on this issue. Thank you so much for your tenacity. kdavis1836@yahoo.com.

  2. Thanks for that, Linda.

    Sharia law is unconstitutional for many reasons. A child can see that. The fight to stop the establishment of Islam as superior to the constitution will go on to the Supreme Court where any favoritism will be struck down.

    It will happen and it will be done right. Mozzies can observe their backward, discriminatory law code in any backward Moz hellhole.

    Sharia law is the reason they are hellholes.

      I will repost this BNI link 1000 times if need be if that’s what it takes to CORRECTLY INFORM AND TEACH people the TRUTH about Oklahoma NOT BEING Sharia-compliant, and the essential need for BNI to NOT be complicit in propagating the damnedable and contemptible LIE saying that it is.

      As an Okie myself, I will defend this WITH MY LIFE IF NEED BE, because without ones honor, what the E-F-G-H else is there worth left defending??

      I have stated the truth, and am now — based on BNI’s link, respectfully asking the graphic be corrected and truthfully state that based on Governor Fallin’s actions April 19th, 2013, that it be boldly stated that OKLAHOMA IS NOT A SHARIA-COMPLIANT STATE.

      Here is the link again:

      • I’m RIGHT; those LEFTIST SCUMBAG FAG MOTHER CAMEL- HUMPERS ARE WRONG. The LAW is on BOTH MY SIDE AND OKLAHOMA’S SIDE. I WILL BE PROVEN RIGHT YET AGAIN.

        The CONSTITUTION is ALL THAT MATTERS HERE, not what the ethical whores of either political party might delude themselves into thinking…AND YES, IM DIGGUNG IN MY HEELS AND SPURS ON THIS ONE. I WILL NOT BE MOVED ON THIS ONE!!! I KNOW THE LAW AND I AM ROCK SOLID RIGHT ON THIS!!!

        RULE #1: NEVER APOLOGIZE FOR THE TRUTH; IT WILL ALWAYS AND FOREVER STAND ON ITS OWN!!

        IF THE ENTIRE REST IF THE WORKD DISAGREES WITH ME, THEY ARE WRONG, I AM RIGHT, THEY ARE WRONG, AND THEY CAN GO ‘SUCK IT’!!

        I AM WILLING TO SACRIFICE ALL MY ‘FAIR-WEATHERED FRIENDS IN THE ALTAR OF TRUTH IF NEEDS BE, BECAUSE PEOPKE LIKE THAT LACK THE COURAGE OF CONVICTION TO BE A TRUE FRIEND IN THE FIRST PLACE ANYWAY…

      • And they forget, what if we just decided to ENFORCE our constitution ourselves, under our rights. What if we all just took care a bussness. It very well can happen. What if some of us, dont give a dam what the fed says? Uuu Huuu.. what if …?//Then, our enemies will know, we had enough. And it may come to that.

  3. The ruling is, on its face, a violation of the 10th Amendment.
    All powers not assumed by the Federal government are left to the states.
    Any appeal should be based on this fact.

    • The ruling in 2010 was not a 10th amendment violation; it was however, a BLATANT 1st amendment violation in that it singled out a specific religion, as well as a 14th amendment violation too.

      Not that it matters…the 2013 bill signed into LAW by Governor Fallin puts to an end ONCE AND FOR ALL the 2010 by killing it, and letting stand LOUD AND PROUD that in Oklahoma, that no law or legal system — be it international or otherwise — that collides with the Oklahoma or United States Constitution will be recognized in the Great State of Oklahoma,thus inviting CAIR and their ilk to remain in HELL, where they currently reside.

      It is — as I said before — designed to survive ANY legal challenge. **

      • Sharia law was not the only point of argument the judge used to rule against this legislation
        .
        In fact the same points can be used to trash the 2013 law too.

        And you think this is first time Fed Govt and Fed courts have subverted
        the law and constitutional liberties of American citizens ? You are being
        ignorant like most folks.

        Read the Liberty Amendments : Restoring American Republic by Mark
        Levin to learn more.

  4. To call the Shariah valid law is to:
    1. abrogate the 1st, 4th, 5th, 13th and 14th Amendments.
    2. allow female genital mutilation, and the arbitrary stoning of women to death in every hospital and doctor’s office in the state.
    3. allow prostitution
    4. allow the rape of non-Muslim women
    5. allow the theft of property from non-Muslims
    6. allow the dispossession of non-Muslims with respect to land, and every other kind of investment
    7. allow the murder of non-Muslims for criticizing Islam
    8. allow the murder of non-Muslims for making true statements about their own faith traditions
    9 allow every crime associated with anti-semitism and racism
    10. allow the use of terror by paramilitary and non-police authorities for the enforcement of Shariah provisions
    11. allow the mass murder of LGBTQ individuals.

    Did I leave something out?

    • …anyone whose wild hair up their snubs went sideways…

      That should come close to completing the list.

      I’m sure you’re open-minded enough to receiving more additions.

      Thanks so much for the initial list.

  5. I believe SemperFi2088 has the right of it. The older proposed amendment to the Oklahoma Constitution is what has been pretty much been permanently blocked here and not the newer legislation. While it’s frustrating to see that older vote by a supermajority of Oklahoma voters blocked (which would include my vote as well) the state of Oklahoma is not in danger of allowing Sharia law anytime soon thanks to the newer legislation that was passed earlier this year. I would only start to worry if CAIR or some other islamic group puts together a challenge to the newer legislation that looks like it might have some legs to it. That will be pretty tough to pull off thanks to the careful wording of the new legislation.

    • Pretty tough? Try almost IMPOSSIBLE!! A close friend of mine — Sally Kern (R) of Oklahoma City originated the legislation, and MADE IT A POINT to make sure NO SPECIFIC RELIGIOUS OR ETHNIC GROUP was mentioned in the bill.

      CAIR’s chances of their bullshit artists/taqqiya lawyers being successful on this are next to ZERO, given the manner and wording of the law. ***

      • SemperFi2088,
        The same arguments made BY THE JUDGE TO STRIKE DOWN THE 2010 LEGISLATION can be used to strike down the 2013 legislation.

        Fed Govt and Fed courts have been subverting civil liberties for lot longer
        than you think or know of, check the video interview with Mark Levin
        a constitutional Expert and Best selling author on the subject , Liberty Amendments at http://booksnsoftware.com/liberty-amendments-mark-levin-american-republic/

        That’s why its important for citizens to get themselves educated on this issue before spouting unwarranted opinions.

      • Sujith: The 2013 legislation CAN NEVER BE STRUCK DOWN. There was NEVER any mention of any religious group in this year’s bill; this is why it passed, and WHY it will survive. The NEW law — which takes effect November 1st — prohibits Oklahoma courts from recognizing any system of laws, be it international law or ANY OTHER KIND, if it collides, conflicts or runs afoul of either the Oklahoma State or United States Constitution, which is the SUPREME LAW IF THE LAND, Muzzie bitching notwithstanding…

        The 2010 state question tanked because it was religious discrimination at its ugliest, because a state senator up for reelection pandered to voter fears, and RUSHED SQ755 through the legislature WITHOUT THINKING IT THROUGH, hence the blowback…

        CAIR cannot whine and bitch this time because their favorite buzz words are ABSENT from the 2013 legislation. With their favorite buzz words absent, they can go in the corner and amuse themselves, because they not a leg to stand on, unless they’re near a fire hydrant…

      • I respect Mark Levin’s work in many regards; however, I know most of the Oklahoma legislature personally, and have the key players of the new law and many others there on speed dial.

        That being said, based on my 30+ years’ legal background, in this instance, I know both the Law and the Constitution better than you do.

        Add to the mix that Oklahoma’s pitbull AG will go the distance in defending this law (remember, it was bulletproofed SEVERAL DIFFERENT WAYS BEFORE PASSAGE), and the fact that no one individual or group was targeted, ENSURES that any and all challenges will be dismissed either for lack if standing or because they cannot prove ‘victimhood’ thus sending professional whiners like CAIR or the ACLU back to the private Hells of their own making… ***

  6. Why do we even have to ban sharia law. We just need to unseat who ever considers sharia law. Because they are our enemy. If we dont make a move, we will be killed. So why not take that chance? while we can win

    • If you follow Oklahoma law and have other states pattern their law in this regard following Oklahoma’s lead, this becomes a moot point, with CAIR holding only their hair-covered hand palms…

  7. The Judge is wrong. Even if the original law deliberately targeted sharia, and the newer law does albeit without naming sharia specifically, the law will also apply to all religions. Of course, we’ve never had any problems with Jewish (Beth Din) Courts and Catholic canon law because they do arbitration and are subordinate to secular courts (they pass nonbinding decisions). The problem with Muslims is that they want sharia decisions to be binding and acceptable in secular courts!

    • lanastaslem: The NEW law has no reach into ANY religious laws, and THOSE laws will have NO WEIGHT in Oklahoma courts.

      Yesterday’s action was the CONCLUDING chapter to a temporary injunction to an unconstitutional ballot measure/state question (755) passed in 2010 that violated the 1st and 14th amendments in that they singled out a specific religious or ethnic group, denying them their freedom of religion, as well as their equal protection and rights of due process under the law.

      The 2013 bill that Governor Mary Fallin SIGNED INTO LAW does not single out religious or ethnic groups; rather, it states that any laws OF ANY KIND that collide with the Oklahoma or United States Constitutions are null and void In Oklahoma and/or its courts.

      I hope this explains it better for you and everyone at BNI. ***

  8. USA law: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

  9. What we are seeing is a calculated destruction by persons having no knowledge, of the foundation of our unique form of government. BNI has a legitimate concern, SemperFi.
    For those who understand, “If you see the oppression of the poor , and violent perverting of judgment and justice in a province, marvel not at the matter: for he that is higher than the highest has taken notice ; and there is (One) higher than the latter.”
    We are under judgement. There will be blood shed. In rhe confusion rhat shall follow, we shall turn on one another even as I have seen my two Rat Terriers, attack each other without restraint. And, they are brothers!
    I have no fear of saying the poor are those whose confidence is in God. It goes along with the violent perverting of judgement and justice.
    On these pages, BNI as well others, express an intuitive response to an as yet unrealized threat to America.
    It did not say the threat is unrecognized. I said it is as yet, “Unrealized,” but it is coming.
    There shall be more 911’s.
    They shall occur in our malls, on our buses, and upon every mode of transportation.
    Our infrastructure, and our reservoirs shall not be exempt.
    In Bellingham, Washington, 44 railroad spikes were found to have been temoved from tracks outside of the city. The report reads as follows:
    “BELLINGHAM, Wash. — BNSF Railway said vandals removed 44 railroad spikes from main line tracks along Bellingham Bay in Washington State. A railroad spokesman said the track tampering could have caused significant damage had it not been discovered by an inspector on July 11, 2011. The railroad is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the vandals.”
    This type of event is occurring at other locations for undetermined or otherwise unsatisfactorily explained reasons.
    Consider:
    [BEL 12589] 10 MILL ST Apt. #B BLK 2006 FORD F150 Reg: PC MA HOPE, CHRISTOPHER M @ 24 PUDDINGSTONE LN – MEDWAY, MA 02019
    Caller reports a suspicious black Ford F150 parked behind their property with railroad spikes in the back of the bed. 403 (Gosselin) and 406 (Joyce) responding.
    406 reports the vehicle is MA Reg 929KE5.
    406 spoke with both parties. They were picking up scrap metal on the side of the tracks, nothing attached to the tracks. Advised to leave the area.”
    It appears no further investigation ensued. This report was made in Aug. of 2012.
    Why would this receive such little consideration?
    What is someone from Maine, doing in Bellingham, with railroad spikes in the back of their truck? Given the previous event, it would seem to warrant greater consideration.
    Remember the common refrain, “If you see something suspicious, report it!
    This person had to have been tresspassing at the least somewhere, and removing steel which is of little value except in large amounts? Is there more to this than we realize?

    • The matter is CLOSED FOREVER in this case. The proposed amendment (State Question 755) was blatantly unconstitutional on its face and if you read my other posts, you’ll see I connected the other dots perfectly.

      The 2013 law passed this year remedied that error in such a way that it’s now BULLETPROOF, will survive ANY CHALLENGE, and is now FED-PROOF, as it is protected under the States Rights provision of the 10th Amendment. ***

  10. Hey Judge !
    Percieved threat your Judicial A$$! The threat is real ! Which one of your Judicial buddies from either the ACLU or CAIR that you golf or schmooze with convinced you to rule against America ?
    You are supposed to be a part of AMERICAN law, not a warrior for the filthy muslims !

  11. Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange: “amendment’s references to Sharia, or Islamic law, violated the U.S. Constitution.” What a dirty LIE. Why does she still have a job?
    The following is what the TRAITOR Judge wants to impose on Americans.

    Sharia for Dummies August 27, 2010 By Nonie Darwish

    1- Jihad, defined as “to war against non-Muslims to establish the religion,” is the duty of every Muslim and Muslim head of state (Caliph). Muslim Caliphs who refuse jihad are in violation of Sharia and unfit to rule.

    2- A Caliph can hold office through seizure of power meaning through force.

    3- A Caliph is exempt from being charged with serious crimes such as murder, adultery, robbery, theft, drinking and in some cases of rape.

    4- A percentage of Zakat (charity money) must go towards jihad.

    5- It is obligatory to obey the commands of the Caliph, even if he is unjust.

    6- A caliph must be a Muslim, a non-slave and a male.

    7- The Muslim public must remove the Caliph if he rejects Islam.

    8- A Muslim who leaves Islam must be killed immediately.

    9- A Muslim will be forgiven for murder of: 1) an apostate 2) an adulterer 3) a highway robber. Vigilante street justice and honor killing is acceptable.

    10- A Muslim will not get the death penalty if he kills a non-Muslim, but will get it for killing a Muslim.

    11- Sharia never abolished slavery, sexual slavery and highly regulates it. A master will not be punished for killing his slave.

    12- Sharia dictates death by stoning, beheading, amputation of limbs, flogging even for crimes of sin such as adultery.

    13- Non-Muslims are not equal to Muslims under the law. They must comply to Islamic law if they are to remain safe. They are forbidden to marry Muslim women, publicly display wine or pork, recite their scriptures or openly celebrate their religious holidays or funerals. They are forbidden from building new churches or building them higher than mosques. They may not enter a mosque without permission. A non-Muslim is no longer protected if he leads a Muslim away from Islam.

    14- It is a crime for a non-Muslim to sell weapons to someone who will use them against Muslims. Non-Muslims cannot curse a Muslim, say anything derogatory about Allah, the Prophet, or Islam, or expose the weak points of Muslims. But Muslims can curse non-Muslims.

    15- A non-Muslim cannot inherit from a Muslim.

    16- Banks must be Sharia compliant and interest is not allowed.

    17- No testimony in court is acceptable from people of low-level jobs, such as street sweepers or bathhouse attendants. Women in low level jobs such as professional funeral mourners cannot keep custody of their children in case of divorce.

    18- A non-Muslim cannot rule — even over a non-Muslim minority.

    19- Homosexuality is punishable by death.

    20- There is no age limit for marriage of girls. The marriage contract can take place anytime after birth and can be consummated at age 8 or 9.

    21- Rebelliousness on the part of the wife nullifies the husband’s obligation to support her, gives him permission to beat her and keep her from leaving the home.

    22- Divorce is only in the hands of the husband and is as easy as saying: “I divorce you” and becomes effective even if the husband did not intend it.

    23- There is no community property between husband and wife and the husband’s property does not automatically go to the wife after his death.

    24- A woman inherits half what a man inherits.

    25- A man has the right to have up to 4 wives and none of them have a right to divorce him — even if he is polygamous.

    26- The dowry is given in exchange for the woman’s sexual organs.

    27- A man is allowed to have sex with slave women and women captured in battle, and if the enslaved woman is married her marriage is annulled.

    28- The testimony of a woman in court is half the value of a man.

    29- A woman loses custody if she remarries.

    30- To prove rape, a woman must have 4 male witnesses.

    31- A rapist may only be required to pay the bride-money (dowry) without marrying the rape victim.

    32- A Muslim woman must cover every inch of her body, which is considered “Awrah,” a sexual organ. Not all Sharia schools allow the face of a woman exposed.

    33- A Muslim man is forgiven if he kills his wife at the time he caught her in the act of adultery. However, the opposite is not true for women, since the man “could be married to the woman he was caught with.”

    34-It is obligatory for a Muslim to lie if the purpose is obligatory. That means that for the sake of abiding with Islam’s commandments, such as jihad, a Muslim is obliged to lie and should not have any feelings of guilt or shame associated with this kind of lying.

    The above are clear-cut laws in Islam decided by great Imams after years of examination and interpretation of the Quran, Hadith and Mohammed’s life. What part of the above is compliant with the U.S. Constitution?

  12. It was an “undisputed fact” that “the concern that it seeks to address has yet to occur,” said Miles-LaGrange. ”While the public has an interest in the will of the voters being carried out, the Court finds that the public has a more profound and long-term interest in upholding an individual’s constitutional rights,” she ruled.

    ————-

    Not sure if the Legal advisors for pro legislation pointed out the instances that sharia law was used in US courts…if they did not , they should be fired.

    There should be mass protest to demand :

    1) reinstate the legislation as it represents the will of majority of the
    people and is constitutional , its the judge who is subverting constitutional rights and democratic rights of the people. (So what if its against sharia or maria law
    that does not give the judge right to subvert will of the majority )
    2) Demand she be suspended for her undemocratic and unconstitutional act.

  13. No matter how “educated” they are, liberals/socialists/progressives are ignorant subhumans devoid of wisdom, understanding, and common sense.

    Always keep in mind, that lawyers no longer study the Constitution in law school. They study case law–made by liberal judges! They also study international law to facilitate the imposing of the NWO.

    • I’m right on this one; everyone and ANYONE else who DISAGREES with me on this is WRONG as I LIVED through this in Oklahoma while this was happening. NO COURT will strike this down as 10th Amendment (States’ Rights) will prevail, and Holder and his depraved band of losers and murderers/gun runners and other assorted criminals do not have a legal leg to stand on.

  14. RELAX, PEOPLE!!! I lived in Oklahoma when all this went down in 2010. As a RULE OF LAW, it was BLATANTLY UNCONSTITUTIONAL ON ITS FACE. The judge was LEGALLY CORRECT to permanently enjoin this…

    The UPSIDE OF THIS…BEFORE ANYONE GETS THEIR PANTIES IN A BUNCH IS… My personal friend Sally Kern (R-Oklahoma City) rewrote a bill this year (2013) that declared ANY and ALL laws that are in CONFLICT with the UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION to be NULL AND VOID in any court in the State of Oklahoma.

    It means that COURTS or LAWS of ANY RELIGION are OF NO FORCE OR EFFECT in Oklahoma if they COLLIDE with either the Oklahoma or the UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION, which is the SUPREME LAW of the land.

    This SUPREME VICTORY was signed into LAW by another friend of mine, Governor Mary Fallin, earlier this year (2013), making the court decision Thursday a MOOT POINT and ACADEMIC..a pyrrhic victory for the original complaining Muslim in 2010.

    We would do well to remember there are TWO kinds of bigotry in America, BOTH of which are unacceptable. One discriminates against people for bring members of a certain group; the other discriminates if you ARE NOT a member of said same group.

    That being said, it’s always to score one for the good guys… ***

    • …also, please circle slash the sharia-compliant state from the graphic on Oklahoma, ESPECIALLY in light of Oklahoma banning International, Sharia or any other laws that collide with the Constitution BEFORE this ruling, which had been preempted by rewriting the law in such a way to get around the amendment to the state constitution in 2010 that got the injunction in the first place.

      Oklahoma IS NOT a Sharia-compliant state BECAUSE of the NEW 2013 LAW; please update the erroneous graphic. It is essential the truth be accurate and CORRECT, lest credibility be damaged and BNI be seen and/or perceived as an anti-Islamic screed.

      Fix it, please…

      • They’re boozing it up and banging their bimbos…who the hell are we kidding here??? They need to get the bimbos drunk to be willing to ‘open up’ for some of these creeps…catch the drift, folks…???

      • The court ruling happened on the 2010 constitutional amendment; the ruling yesterday permanently prevented the amendment from becoming law as THAT amendment singled out Sharia Law.

        The 2013 Law signed in April PRE-EMPTED the 2010 matter, as no single group of people were singled out, thus making it constitutionally sound. Yesterday’s decision was simply the FINAL NAIL in the coffin of the 2010 matter, which was BLATANTLY UNCONSTITUTIONAL from the giddyap. The 2013 bill — SIGNED INTO LAW — by Governor Mary Fallin on April 19th, has NO HOLES in it, and will SURVIVE any and ALL CHALLLENGES.

        With THAT done, let us focus on 2013′s bill new and now law was a MAJOR VICTORY over the asswipes at CAIR, because even THEY know there is NO ROOM for challenge, as even THIS judge would rule in this instance (for the 2013 law), that they would have no standing.

      • I followed this case from the get-go because I WAS THERE as it happened, with all the fights and skirmishes afterward, until I moved home last year for family reasons!!!

        The temporary injunction issued right after the November 2010 vote by the Federal Judge pertained to SQ 755 only. Yesterday’s action was a close-out of that case. The 10th Circuit upheld her initial decision…that case is DONE. FINAL. FINISHED.

        The 2013 bill by Sally Kern in the House and Anthony Sikes in the Senate was signed into LAW by Governor Mary Fallin on April 19th as a separate STATE measure in which the Feds have NO JURISDICTION as it pertains only to STATE COURTS, thus making the matter BULLETPROOF ON 10th Amendment grounds.

        I have an extensive background with over 30 years worth of legal experience; I KNOW from where I speak and have been a consultant to the private sector as well as government.

        I will repost this BNI link 1000 times if need be if that’s what it takes to CORRECTLY INFORM AND TEACH people the TRUTH about Oklahoma NOT BEING Sharia-compliant, and the essential need for BNI to NOT be complicit in propagating the damnedable and contemptible LIE saying that it is.

        As an Okie myself, I will defend this WITH MY LIFE IF NEED BE, because without ones honor, what the E-F-G-H else is there worth left defending??

        I have stated the truth, and am now — based on BNI’s link, respectfully asking the graphic be corrected and truthfully state that based on Governor Fallin’s actions April 19th, 2013, that it be boldly stated that OKLAHOMA IS NOT A SHARIA-COMPLIANT STATE.

        Here is the link again:

        April’s victory was — as I said before — a SEPARATE AND STAND-ALONE action that IS NOT under the jurisdiction of ANY FEDERAL JUDGE OR AGENCY. To do so would be met with maximum resistance by Oklahom’s pitbull AG, Scott Pruitt, who earned his bones fighting for the liberties of individual people.

      • Many Muslim ‘leaders’ or senior’s member’s are known for making Muslim’s think that they’re winning or have beaten the non-muslims to encite confidence in Muslims to manipulate morale amongst Islam’s followers. If the message going out to the Muslim communities is “We beat them at their own game, Allah has shown that Islam will win against any enemy” By doing this, it gets these savages to believe more, and trust the Islam leaders that allah won’t let them die when they set off their suicide vests. A fairly liberal media company called “VICE” did a piece on the Muslim suicide bomber kids. The kids were told by their Imam’s that they wouldn’t die when they detonated their suicide bomb vests. That the explosion shoots forward only, so the kids will be safe and they will have a party when they come back from their mission.

        By turning this blanket statement that all foreign laws, no matter what the origin, be it political or religious, have zero influence and can never ‘trump’ Oklahoma’s laws and judicial system.

        CAIR argued the law in 2010 as it was sent out and described as “Sharia Law” so of course the idiots at CAIR went after Oklahoma about the No Sharia verbiage used to describe. Now, the law isn’t “Sharia law” specific, the new ruling is that no laws besides Oklahoma’s laws will be used period, no matter who the crime was committed by or what religion the criminal is.

      • SDG, let wait and see if any judges down there consider sharia in their rulings as many in other states already have. Several have been overturned on appeal, but it should not have considered by the lower court in the first place. That’s where the problem is.

      • THANK YOU SO MUCH, Smackdageehad!!! Another correctly informed person realizes the NEW OKLAHOMA LAW is a STATE matter and that FEDERAL COURTS have ABSOLUTELY NO JURISDICTION in this matter!!! ***

      • Thanks for the assist, SDG. It seems I’ve run into a bunch of knee-jerk panic mongers who are too damned LAZY to EDUCATE themselves on the issues that threaten America.

        Talk about low-information voters….YEESH!!! Both (D) and (R) are equally complicit in this ongoing social, cultural and political genocide.

        Tommy Lee Jones’ character had it nailed in Men In Black when he said: “Individual people are smart; the masses are dumb and panicky.”

        When BNI politely and responsibly informs people of an event, the low-information panic-mongers and fear freaks come out of the woodwork like cockroaches with a strain of gross ignorance more virulent than the clap.

        Result is that I wind up spending a good chunk of my day off shoveling sh*t against the tide against these knee-jerk imbeciles who lack the interest to do their own homework because they’re more interested in preening their own non-stop egos than to actually (heaven forbid) actually LEARN THE FACTS about the issue at hand.

        I lived in Oklahoma until a year ago, when the needs of a family member compelled me to come home and better care for them. I know Oklahoma Law, most of the legislators and statewide officials, and have a Rolodex that half of them would die for. We keep in touch regularly,and I KNOW FOR A CERTAINTY that this new law is bulletproof, and was written so as not to single out any one group, thus negating any challenges.

        Other states will follow Oklahoma, and in fact, some have… ***

      • PLEASE — FOR THE LOVE OF GOD — repost BOTH link AND the graphic that went with your APRIL 19, 2013 BNI article where Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin SIGNED INTO LAW HB 1060, the bill that barred any legal systems that conflicted or collided with the Oklahoma or United States Constitution from being considered or USED in Oklahoma courts.

        The link again with CORRECT GRAPHIC is:

      • It IS relevant…what does it take to get through to the low-information hacks that cling to the fear-mongering tactics like flies to horse poop?

        A and B in this case are inseparably connected. The 2010 case that the judge made the injunction PERMANENT yesterday is now irrelevant, as SQ755 was unconstitutional from the start. She was right from the beginning, pure and simple.

        To make the 2013 law irrelevant is to make BOTH irrelevant, and smacks of journalistic irresponsibility, and you and I are supposed to be BETTER than the smegma that passes themselves off as the scumbags of the drive-by media…

        My respectful suggestion is that since my 100% TRUTHFUL statement is being ignored, that the entire thread remain up, but be closed, because the only people adding at this point are the low-information types who seem incapable of adding a new, meaningful or substantive viewpoint.

        I have stuck to the LAW and the CONSTITUTION, and all I’m getting is grief. I guess the best way to describe it us time I’ll never get back.

        Have a nice evening. ***

      • I AM NOT calling BNI a low-information hack. She’s one of the smartest people here…

        What I AM saying us that the 2010 case is OVER. SQ755 was unconstitutional on its face as a violation if the 1st and the 14th amendments, and THAT is why it failed. SQ755 will NEVER see the light of day in Oklahoma, as it discriminates against a specific group of people.

        The Oklahoma Legislature learned from that, and in a SEPARATE, STAND ALONE ACTION introduced this year, passed HB 1060, which is a STATE LAW that refuses to recognize any international law or other authority in an Oklahoma court if it conflicts with either the Oklahoma or United States Constitution, citing the United States Constitution as the SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND.

        Because religious groups, their cultures, laws, etc., were specifically OMITTED from the wording of the law, and simply FOCUSED on REFUSING to recognizing any and all that conflicted with the State or US Constitution, they kept a LASER-LOCKED focus on this matter, thus PREEMPTING any chance for a challenge by CAIR or ANY professional crybaby organization.

        I hope this clarifies this better…

  15. OMG this is such BS!!! Both houses of the state congress voted in favor of it and the Governor signed it into law!! Now a judge feels she is in the right to override the wishes of the entire state?? What a dhimmi slave to CAIR she is! I really wish someone would pin CAIR down and ask why they oppose this legislation so strongly. I mean seriously, it is because they DO have desires for Sharia Law in the US. If they really were against Sharia they would not oppose this. Their claim that this demonizes muslims is a crock of shit. If they wanted to show that they and other Muslims really do wish to integrate with the USA they woud actually support such legislation. Talk about a transparent façade they are putting up! CAIR needs to go the way of the Holy Land Foundation.

    • Todd: Don’t pop a blood vessel. The judge took action on a 2010 proposed state constitutional amendment that passed with 70% of the vote — State Question 755. It was unconstitutional. See my earlier post.

      2013: The bill was rewritten with a key change, cleared BOTH houses, SIGNED INTO LAW, and will survive any and all challenges…

      All is well in Oklahoma on the CAIR-asshole front…we can go to sleep now…

    • Judges can in states that have not passed it along the lines Oklahoma DID. The ones that followed Oklahoma’s lead WILL survive ALL CHALLENGES.

      IT’S ALL IN THE WORDING OF THE BILL…

      • Semper, I am from Oklahoma, south east.DONT GIVE IN. Very proud of yall. Im an old man, but my eyes are clear. Fight them. With all your heart and mind. Our nation depends on it. The decision has been made by so many states, so many people. Thank you. From all those who have passed on, for all those who gave their blood and sweat, for our way of life. Thank you.
        We will never forget, who we are. What we stand for, no matter how many road blocks, how many lies, dont give in.
        Thank you. The battle we fight now, will determine the future. Dont give in. Millions who are still asleep, will wake. When this encrouches just a bit more. You know how we roll.
        Thank you

    • CAIR assholes are ego masturbators — much like Congress — caught up in their delusions of grandeur, in that they think they can do more than they think they can, They’re nothing more than third-rate bullies and thugs, and more of the American people need to stand up to these pussies, thinking they are the cat’s meow…long overdue for a major de-ganging, de-clawing, with a neutering and a castration to boot. ***

  16. JUDGE’S can be arrested and sent to JAIL…THEY are not above the law,,that is SOMETHING that all LIBERAL’S need to learn REAL fast like…BEFORE it’s too late for them…

      • Obviously it is not. Please show me how what the legislature wrote can prevent judges from using sharia as they already have in at least 50 cases around the country.

      • The 2010 proposed state constitutional amendment singled out Sharia Law, and THAT is what the judge 100% justifiably killed on Thursday.

        It was THIS YEAR (2013) THREE YEARS LATER, that a NEW LAW was written that DID NOT MENTION Sharia Law, but rather, specifically BANNED the use of any law, be it international, religious or ANY OTHER LAW that collided or conflicted with either the Oklahoma State or United States Constitution from being considered in an Oklahoma Court.

        BECAUSE it did not specify any single religious group or country outside the United States, the law THIS TIME was 100% CONSTITUTIONAL, and cleared judicial review with flying colors.

        It is now OKLAHOMA LAW, AND NO FEDERAL JUDGE CAN TOUCH THIS ONE…because no one group was singled out!!!

        I DOUBLE DOG DARE AND TRIPLE DOG DEFY ANYONE TO FIND A HOLE IN THIS ONE!!! ***

      • What I just wrote WILL feature Oklahoma as the TEST CASE. NOBODY will find a hole in this. Just as Texas wrote their Voter ID Law using Indiana as their template (the Supremes upheld theirs 5-4).

        Oklahoma will be the one to follow as states gather up the balls to keep Sharia the HELL out of American courts, and lead by example by deposing Fatso as New Jersey’s sorry blimp-ass RINO Governor.
