Oklahoma: Clinton-appointed fed judge sides with Hamas-CAIR, throws out vote to ban sharia law

In other words, this rogue judge ruled that Islamic sharia law is permitted in Oklahoma.

Her reward for ruling in favor of sharia? In 2012, President Barack Obama nominated U.S. District Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange to the board of trustees for the Harry S Truman Scholarship Foundation.

via Oklahoma’s ban on Sharia law thrown out by federal judge | Tulsa World.

An Oklahoma constitutional amendment that would bar the state’s courts from considering or using Sharia law was ruled unconstitutional Thursday by a federal judge in Oklahoma City.

In finding the law in violation of the U.S. Constitution’s Establishment Clause, U.S. District Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange issued a permanent injunction prohibiting the certification of the results of the state question that put the Sharia law ban into the state constitution.

“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,” the judge wrote.

Why wasn’t the same true about Obamacare?

Muneer Awad, a Muslim and American citizen who was executive director of the Oklahoma Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations at the time, filed the lawsuit on Nov. 4, 2010, seeking to block the so-called “Save Our State” constitutional amendment that had been approved by 70 percent of Oklahoma voters two days earlier.

Awad claimed that State Question 755 violated the Establishment Clause and the Free Exercise Clause of First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Miles-LaGrange issued a temporary restraining order on Nov. 8, 2010, finding that enjoining the certification of the election results for SQ 755 would not be adverse to the public interest.

On Nov. 29, 2010, she issued a preliminary injunction, finding that Awad had legal standing and that SQ 755 likely violated both the Free Exercise Clause and the Establishment Clause.

Miles-LaGrange also found then that the balance of harms weighed strongly in favor of Awad, that the alleged violation of Awad’s First Amendment rights constituted irreparable injury and that the public interest demanded protection of these rights.

On Jan. 10, 2012, the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed Miles-Grange’s preliminary injunction ruling, and on July 29, 2012, the lawsuit was amended, adding four additional plaintiffs.

In her opinion Thursday, Miles-LaGrange noted that the 10th Circuit wrote in January 2012 that “when the law that voters wish to enact is likely unconstitutional, their interests do not outweigh Mr. Awad’s in having his constitutional rights protected.”

An absurd opinion. What specifically would Awad not be able to do under a proposed ban on sharia law in Oklahoma? Marry four wives? Marry underage girls?

Miles-LaGrange found “that any harm that would result from permanently enjoining the certification of the election results is further minimized in light of the undisputed fact that the amendment at issue was to be a preventative measure and that the concern that it seeks to address has yet to occur.”

She pointed out in a footnote that attorneys defending the amendment at the November 2010 preliminary injunction hearing admitted that “they did not know of any instance where an Oklahoma court had applied Sharia law or used the legal precepts of other nations or cultures.”

Miles-LaGrange also rejected the argument that the amendment could be salvaged by severing certain language that specifically mentioned Sharia law. That option would have retained less precise wording saying that Oklahoma courts “shall not look to the legal precepts of other nations or cultures.”

Does Miles LaGrange have an agenda?

The judge wrote in her order that “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 added that the plaintiffs “have shown that the voters would not have approved the amendment without the unconstitutional provisions.”

She noted that “the public debate, public discussions, articles, radio ads and robocalls” regarding SQ 755 all primarily and overwhelmingly focused on Sharia law. “Given this context, the court finds any reasonable voter would have perceived SQ 755 as a referendum on Sharia law,” she wrote.

Isn’t that the whole point? Was Awad ever even a resident of Oklahoma?

Awad moved to New York City in August 2012 to accept a position with another CAIR affiliate, according to Thursday’s opinion.

On Thursday night, Adam Soltani, the current executive director of CAIR’s Oklahoma Chapter and a fellow plaintiff in the lawsuit, issued a statement in which he said: “As Oklahomans, we are incredibly thrilled at the decision and applaud the judicial system for upholding our constitutional rights. This is a victory not only for Oklahoma Muslims, but for all Oklahomans and all Americans.”

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

Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt said in the wake of the appellate court decision in January 2012 that his office “will continue to defend” the state’s position.

However, spokeswoman Diane Clay said Pruitt would have no comment on Thursday night.

Despite the legal setbacks for SQ 755, Gov. Mary Fallin signed House Bill 1060 into law last April. Proponents said that without specifically mentioning Sharia law, the measure would prohibit the application of foreign laws when it would violate either the Oklahoma Constitution or the U.S. Constitution.

Judges like this are the precise reason Why American Law for American Courts is Needed.

  1. They sure do have an incestual relationship with Muslims and Dem’s appear to be just fine with it, WTF is wrong with them. Do they like BO think if the radicals had the chance to attack America from within they wouldn’t also be victims stupid SOB’s

    • Something is missing from the picture to make it complete, a burka to hide her face or at least a headscarf. Traiter to the constitution, she should resign if any decency left in her, or fired. Go live in Iran or Saudi Arabia!

      • she needs to leave the USA apparently she has had a taste of Sharia or she would not have done that..She is mental if she likes that kind of stuff..look at Janet Jackson..she married a muslim and now lives in the middle east what a dumb thing to do..I say fire her, remove her!!

    • Like the woman from Texas….Wendy what’s her name……they look to be newsmakers and move on up closer to Oby! Politicians are really ingratiating and have little to no pride in personal integrity..You have to stretch some to say that the criminal statutes of Sharia Law is a constitutional right! Wrong country……sorry you have a Kool Ade babe for a judge!

  2.

  7. Its becoming clear that law makers who violate our Constitution do so without fear of reprisals. Perhaps its time to hold these traitors accountable to the people for their treasonous actions. I do not advocate violence. Instead, I advocate a people’s trial for treason under the provisions of Article 3, Section 3 of the US Constitution. Making war on them is not limited to taking up arms in my opinion. I believe that making war is any act that is perpetrated by a law maker, or in this case, an enforcer of our Constitutional Laws, that has the effect of abrogating the People’s Constitutional Rights. Clearly, this Judge is supporting the advancement of Shariah Law who’s proponents advocate the destruction of our Constitution and Bill of Rights. This then makes her an accomplice to those enemies of the Republic. She must be held to account for her treasonous actions!

  8. Another name to add to the recall list.

    It is my prayer, that America will once again be worthy of God’s blessings, but first America must humble ourselves and invite him back, and make him welcome.

    The Constitution of The United States of America is the supreme law of the land. To many of our elected officials, and those that they have appointed, illegally pass laws that are Unconstitutional, and are approved by The Supreme Court. As American Patriots, we need to Recall Congress, Impeach The Supreme Court, and charge Obama and Clinton, with Treason. We also need to Abolish the I. R. S. and the Federal Reserve Bank, and repeal the Patriot Act. We also need Term Limits, and to require all Congress members, and government employees to be on Social Security, with the same retirements that Tax Payers have.

    Oath Keeper since 15 Feb 1965.

    Like so many other government agencies, the NSA has become a self-fulfilling prophecy, which is one that alters actions and thus comes true. In order to justify their pay this agency has to find terrorist or terroristic threats, even if they have to create them.

    15 Feb 1965, I joined The Army of The United States of America. I was sent from my home, in Dallas, Texas, to Ft. Polk LA, for basic training. I walked into a classroom one day and found the topic was, “What it means to be an American.” I though I was born in America, and did not need to be told what it meant to be an American. I asked the instructor why we had to take the class, and he said that during the Korean War there were more POW defectors than anytime in history. The reason for that was that so many Americans took their citizenship for granted and knew nothing about the principles on which this country was founded. The reason for the mess America is in is because so few people have any idea what it means to be an American. Obama wants to get immigrants that can hardly speak English, let alone understand what this country was founded on.
    America Truth Restored is trying to educate people on what it means to be an American, where we will stop losing our God given rights.


    If more Americans understood The Constitution of The United States of America, they would recognize that our Fore Fathers were religious men, and were inspired when they set up this great country. Our government is supposed to be rule by majority, with respect for the minority, but we are now ruled by minority with OUT any respect for majority. The overwhelming majority of Americans believe in God and some form of religion, but God is being pushed out of our schools, and government, bu the minority who do not believe in God.

    One of the things that have made America a great country is that we are a melting pot of people from different cultures. This enables us to take the best parts of many cultures, but far too many immigrants today never assimilate into American culture, never learn English, never add to the American society, and try to change America into the country they left, and add cost to running out government by demanding special privileges, like government services provided in their native languages.
    This is not the first Amnesty Program, we did it once, and now it is expected, so illegal immigrants keep coming, because they think that they will be given Amnesty and Citizenship, but until they do, they milk the system.

  9. As soon as that Corrupt Piece of S#it Obama is Convicted and Impeached and proved to have never been a citizen of our country every thing that Corrupt Piece of S#it did and every appointment he made will be NUL and VOID! This Trash of a Judge will be thrown out!

  10. Exactly which of Asad’s constitutional rights were violated by this Amendment voted on by the citizens of Oklahoma? This Judge basically said that this law was a preventative measure and that there have been no instances of Sharia Law being implemented anywhere in the United States. I think that is the point. We want to continue having no instances of Sharia Law being implemented in this country. Why wait until it happens before trying to do anything about it? What is wrong with stopping this abomination of Western law before any Muslim can force it on the citizens of the United States? It has been proven that any despicable and disgusting law can be forced on Americans by these immoral Judges. This case is a perfect example of that; this Judge just stomped on the votes of 70% of Oklahoma’s voters. This administration and it’s appointees will appease any group of anti-Americans or perverts. It appears that the courts of this nation will be your friend if you are a homosexual or a Muslim. If you are just an everyday citizen watch out because your vote does not mean anything and you are undeserving of any relief from a federal court!

  11. The only constitutional rights the person gets, is the US’S…period, she gave up her others, from other countries when she came through the door….hate this liberal BS.

  12. I know it sounds mean but I have to say it; that’s a ‘judge?’ She looks just as vacant as a certain vacuous idiot we have in this country (Canada) named Justin Trudeau.

  13. …and what about “Separation of Church and State” that liberals so proudly tout at the drop of a hot? What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. If they open the door for “Sharia Law” they open the door for Jewish and Biblical law as well….

  15. so what part of uphold and defend the constitution did this lawyer miss in her oath of office. And she is a woman, maybe we need some sharia law immediately and get her in a Burqa and not out of the house unless with a male relative. And maybe a nice honor killing is in order for a person that is looking to be a woman controlling men.

  16. Apparently, Judge LaGrange lacks a complete understanding of the United States Constitution. The U.S. Constitution prohibits only the FEDERAL government in the Establishment Clause, not the States. If she had studying American History she would be aware that the original 13 States did, in fact, establish religions for their state.

    She goes even further, and completely ignore the Tenth Amendment : The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

  17. Whose law will they be tried under when they kill an infidel ior have an honor killing because one of their women looked ast a man passing by on the sidewalk.

    • Sorry for the typing errors. My neuropathy sometimes makes typing very difficult. It should be Joel Hart. There is no “i” in or and there is no “s” in at.

  18. One thing that everybody should remember is, Eric Holder was working for Janet Reno in the justice department in the Clinton administration. Just a word to the wise Billary would be the same disaster that Obutthole has been for our freedom!

  19. Can’t wait for it, Sharia law, to be the law of theand so females like this and others deplored by Islam can be rightfully judged and removed to their true positions in society.

  20. This B*tch judge did not rule in favor of the constitution. She ruled against it.

    “Congress shall make no law to establish religion”

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
