WND Strains to Find ‘Victory’ in Arpaio Lawsuit

Sheriff Joe scores victory against Obama’s amnesty! So reads the headline at the Worldnetdaily as they strain to find any little thing to celebrate. A victory, you say? Yeah, not so much. The “victory against Obama’s amnesty” is a motion for a briefing schedule in the case.

A judge has sided with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio in the first clash in what is expected to be a major court fight over the legality – or not – of Barack Obama’s looming amnesty program, ordering a fast track for case arguments and hearings.

The announcement came on Wednesday from U.S. District Judge Beryl A. Howell in Washington, and granted a motion from Arpaio’s attorney, Larry Klayman of FreedomWatch, to move things along quickly.

Two Justice Department lawyers representing Obama in the fight had wanted their initial response delayed for weeks – for one thing because of the coming Christmas season.

But Howell ordered Obama to respond to Arpaio’s motion for a preliminary injunction – to protect the U.S. while the merits of the amnesty program are debated in court – by Dec. 15. A full preliminary injunction hearing is set for Dec. 22.

Wow. What a…victory. Go team, go.

    Don’t you understand Ed? For a persecuted minority like Christians in the US, even getting the courts to hear your case is a major victory.

    This is sort of like Brian Brown of NOM claiming that a routine stay of a decision overturning a same-sex marriage ban pending appeal is a major victory. Actually, it’s exactly like that.

    Crippling Blow to Obama as God Endorses Arpaio

    In a major victory for Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the sun rose this morning, a clear endorsement by god of his lawsuit against HUSSEIN Obama. Such a monumental win for liberty and patriotism and god and stuff is likely to shake the Obama administration to the core. WND analysts say this is likely a deathblow to the imposter in the White House and will result in Obama admitting that everything he has done has been in service to Allah, that everyone in the administration is gay and trans, and that he did forge his birth certificate to hide the fact that his real father is Frank Malcolm Davis X Obama, Sr. He will then resign and escape the country in a black UN helicopter bound for his homeland of Kenya, where he has a secret Illuminati stronghold called “Fort Saul Alinsky,” just before a crowd of American Patriots and Marines storm the White house, intent on following the Constitution by shooting Obama. We estimate the size of the crowd will be around 78 trillion people. After Obama resigns and flees, Joe Biden and everyone else in the line of presidential succession will suddenly not exist and Louie Gohmert will be installed as president.

    Wow. I hope he wins. I didn’t even know that Obama had an amnesty program. I thought he wrote an Executive Order that sorted the illegal immigrants so that enforcement would go after the least bad of them last, for a few years (or before, if the next president is a Republican), if those illegals both met the standard and signed up, leaving more of enforcement’s limited resources to use hunting for and deporting the actual criminal illegals.

    Does Arpaio even have standing? Is there some point at which the people of Maricopa county start wondering why he seems to busy himself with everything but his actual job?

    First, the president gave amnesty to the loomings; then he granted it to the lemmings. Republicans were delighted at the latter decision.

    Judge Beryl A. Howell was appointed to the federal bench by President Obama. Just sayin’ . . .
