Judges: Citizens can't stop Judges from imposing Muslim Sharia Law
The Washington Times has confirmed an LA Times report that Muslim Sharia law can be imposed by liberal judges upon the citizens of Oklahoma, despite 70% of voters demanding limits upon liberal judges, to stop them from applying foreign law above their allegiance to the U.S. Constitution.
"The U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, in a ruling released Tuesday, affirmed an order by a district court judge in 2010 that prevented the voter-approved state constitutional amendment from taking effect. The ruling also allows a Muslim community leader in Oklahoma City to continue his legal challenge of the law's constitutionality.
"The measure, known as State Question 755, was approved with 70% of the vote in 2010. The amendment would bar courts from considering the legal precepts of other nations or cultures. 'Specifically, the courts shall not consider international law or sharia law,' the law reads.
"The appellate court opinion pointed out that proponents of the law admitted to not knowing of a single instance in which an Oklahoma court applied sharia law or the legal precepts of other countries.
"'This serves as a reminder that these anti-sharia laws are unconstitutional and that if politicians use fear-mongering and bigotry, the courts won't allow it to last for long,' said Muneer Awad, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Oklahoma. Awad sued to block the law, contending that it infringed on his 1st Amendment rights. (Stephen Ceasar, Los Angeles Times, January, 10, 2012)."
[Chaps question: When citizens try to limit the power of activist judges, by specifically voting to limit their jurisdiction, what can stop those same judges from ruling the people don't have power to limit judges? It's time to impeach a few judges, folks.]
Not surprisingly, Judges don't think people have power to limit judicial tyranny.
I say a national uprising must take place, not just in Oklahoma, but in the U.S. Congress.

Adams continued: "Currently there are over a dozen states that have introduced legislation banning foreign law on the state level - including the state I represent, Florida...[it has] become a fixture of the confirmation process for Supreme Court justices. In her 2010 confirmation hearing, Elena Kagan was questioned by Senator Charles E. Grassley, an Iowa Republican, who asked if she thought international law should factor into a federal court’s decision-making process. She confirmed that she did, stating: 'I think it depends. There are some cases in which the citation of foreign law, or international law, might be appropriate.'
"This kind of practice begs the question: Are we going to allow our court systems to dictate our policymaking process based off of foreign sources or are we going to go through the proper channels prescribed by our Constitution? We must remember that we have an American judicial system in place for a reason; it is based off of our country’s rich history and it is intentionally unique to our great nation. As we move forward as a country, we must work to protect it."

[Chaps comment: Let's stand with Congresswoman Sandy Adams, and petition all 535 Congressmen and Senators to co-sponsor and pass her bill to stop Sharia in US courts.]
