Posted on 07/16/2010 4:15:42 AM PDT by rellimpank
What's black and white and "red" all over? The Department of Justice's newly designed website. Gone are the standard red, white, and blue motifs, replaced by an all-black backdrop. And prominently placed on virtually every page of the site is a quote credited to a man who facilitated a greater role for socialists and communists at the U.N., and the global "workers rights movement."
The redesigned website was launched without fanfare, but was noticed internally by several career lawyers, who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of political reprisals. "We were told that the media team and the senior leadership that signed off on the design thought that the patriotic shtick from the Ashcroft days was a bit much for an agency that isn't supposed to be political," says a DOJ lawyer, who inquired about the redesign. "It was a real effort not to laugh at that."
Prominent now on the site are links to "Justice.gov en Español" and the "The Recovery Act and the Department of Justice." But most jarring is the quote that is appears on virtually every page of the website. "The common law is the will of mankind issuing from the life of the people," which, some DOJ staff say, is tied to a man who ushered in the socialist and communist theories that now permeate the United Nations.
Another DOJ lawyer says, "It's taken from an inscription along one of the outer walls of the department ["The common law derives from the will of mankind, issuing from the life of the people, framed by mutual confidence, and sanctioned by the light of reason"], but no one is sure where the quote came from."

Guess it’s just a matter of time before they ‘’fly’ a red star, hammer & sickle, or both. I won’t be shocked then, either.
file under “commie takeover”
Black everywhere on the site. Not very subtle.
Amen. But still we sit likes cowards just watching the dismantling of the greatest country on earth. We put our hope in the weepublicans who just passed the monster back destruction bill. Kyl of Arizona works to bring back the estate tax. They show their hand in only wanting progressive light so they have maximum control of our lives. But we get excited about reelecting these morons. A national awakening and return to God is our only hope. But that is not even on people’s radar screen.
Duh, it looks like an slightly tweaked version of the Obama design motif.
I just checked it out. All black. It’s too bad, all the things that Holder could have done to REALLY help black people break down the racial divide....down the drain...kaput. And it’s too late now to try to salvage.
Holder’s actions have made a supposedly intelligent black person look foolish and ignorant. What is the rest of America to think? Holder has pushed the black movement back 50 years. Maybe this was his plan all along.
Day after day, you can’t make this stuff up!
It is down here in the South. I fear that a Nation divided will be the only solution... I will not live as a GODless communist.
Holder is just presiding over the reductio ad absurdum of that slow motion trainwreck.
More depressing every day.
gee and I thought our laws were guided by the US Constitution ... The good news is the garbage goes out as fast as it floated in.
Like one Mason said:
“It doesn’t matter who the American people vote for, they always vote for us.”
Probably was Holders and Obama’s plan to push blacks back down and back 50 yrs. It fits in with there plan to make everyone dependent on government.
Independent self motivated and self sustaining people are definitely NOT in the best interests of this Administration or the Democrat Party.
There are no reparation funds in equality, no shakedown money and no camera face time for race-baiting rants on the evening news without the 'cause'.
What would he, the Rev and Sharpton do if there were no perceived difference in civil rights?
Black supremacist website. Sigh. With everything else coming out of there by way of Adams, I guess it’s time. To drop them in nasty bag.
The thing is, there is really nothing to back up this assertion. I'm surprised that The Spectator published a whole article on so slim a premise, with no solid attribution of the quote to Wilfred Jenks.
“The good news is the garbage goes out as fast as it floated in.”
I wish that were the case. Truth is, the commie bastards sabotage everything constantly when they are “out of power”, and rush through every liberal / communist wet dream when they are in charge. You can’t name one socialist policy that has really ever been rolled back.
Sadly, it’s the American people that are to blame and no one else. We have a permanent voting block of lazy, ignorant and corrupt leaches that will always vote for whomever promises them the most goodies. Why shouldn’t they? They get a free ride.
Needs said without ceasing!
In other words, we can do whatever the f*** we want...
Since I Won obviously represents the will of the people (He Won, after all), then his words must be law.
The Obama-Holder Department of JustUs
Here's the DOJ's statement on counterterrorism:
The Obama administration is committed to using every instrument of national power to fight terrorism including intelligence and military operations as well as the criminal justice system. As a counter-terrorism tool, the criminal justice system has proven incredibly effective in both incapacitating terrorists and gathering valuable intelligence from and about terrorists. In every instance, the administration will use the tool that is most effective for fighting terrorism, and will make those decisions based on pragmatism, not ideology.
Secession is the only way left to preserve liberty. There is no controlling of the behemoth that is the Regime- all of the DC mob including career employees in every department, lobbyists, aids, lawyers, and layers of regulators. Our founders would have physically thrown out these rascals. And, they would have required a birth certificate.
What an ugly, ominous website. Justice, eh?
Approaching doom is more like it.
At one time they did. But that was then and this is now.
On the fourth day of November 2008, a majority of voters in America voted to commit National suicide. The Nation first, and unknown to them at that point in time, then them.
Nothing new,it is just how dictators and tyrants have operated through the centeries, get enough fools to put you in power by promising to steal from those who earn and give o those that haven’t [them]then after consolidating their power, they eliminate those who put them in power.
The Democrat Party in 2010 eliminated the elderly as one segament of their voting base by enacting and passing obama care. The federally funded abortion[free to them] provision will eventually eliminate the Blacks just as the pro “choice” laws eliminated their White voting Base segament. Illegals are slated to replace both segaments in the future. The new “reform” laws are designed to give the unions the impression that they will be gaining a lot of power. Foe a while they will. But, as the economy[means of production] is destroyed, it will take the unions with it. No jobs= no money. No money= no taxes, no union jobs, no governmental jobs. This will not happen overnight. It will take a few years to implement, but, the foundation is being laid at this point in time.
It’s your basic black, gold and white motif. The initial board shows a shield with a blue field at the top and red and white stripes below ~ almost the same as “THE UNION PACIFIC RAIL SYSTEM” (see: http://www.uprr.com/aboutup/history/graphics/uplogo/osow15.gif ) ~ presaging, one would suppose, another government takeover!
No, it was not the case that it was automatically ruled out. It was possible for it to be homologated and for the appeal to be dropped. As Mr Baker is now aware, a note was lodged by the Libyan Government that indicated that it would be prepared to drop matters. Indeed, I received representations from Mr al-Megrahi's lawyers that their interpretation of how the situation could be dealt with was different. However, our view was that the application was properly submitted. The criteria would have to be met, but I was duty bound to consider the application.
I received numerous letters and representations, and I recognised that a decision on transfer would be of personal significance to those whose lives had been affected. On 27 May, I received advice from my officials that proposed a process that would allow representations to be taken into consideration in a fair and appropriate fashion. Accordingly, I met groups and individuals with a relevant interest.
I spoke to the United States Attorney General, Eric Holder, on 26 June. On 1 July, I met the families of victims from the United Kingdom; on 6 July, I met a lady from Spain whose sister was a member of the cabin crew; and on 9 July, I held a videoconference with families from the United States. In addition, on 23 July, I spoke with a family whose relatives died in Lockerbie. With the agreement of the families, I have published the notes of those meetings.
Congress probably can't get its mitts on MacAskill, but Holder's not a problem, is he...?
Reason I posted the above on this particular thread: Same DOJ.
That will be the last resort.
The stones wrote that about obama’s true daddy.
THESE COMMIE BASTARDS MUST BE DESTROYED!
The way it used to be....
Odd... no updates since July/08
The next American President will be elected on a single promise.
“I will undo EVERYTHING Obama has done!”
a birth certificate?
I wonder how many people felt this way when Russia was taken over by the commies?
I don’t have enough history to know if things were bad under the Czar but did he starve 30 million people to death? (or was it 45)
****I wonder how many people felt this way when Russia was taken over by the commies?****
From the article:
“several career lawyers, who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of political reprisals”
Does that answer your question Mr. K?
The color black is appropriate for Obozo’s Department of One-Sided Justice.
"You'd better get it straight that it's not a bunch of boy scouts you're up against -- then you'll know that this is not the age for beautiful gestures. We're after power and we mean it. Your fellows were pikers, but we know the real trick, and you'd better get wise to it. There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted -- and you create a nation of law-breakers -- and then you cash in on guilt. Now that's the system...that's the game, and once you understand it, you'll be easier to deal with."
Holder has some objection to red, white, and blue.
Seriously, there are several people in this Administration who need to go.
That all the freebies you have left to give away, dog food. Next we move on to guns and gulags to store people for disposal.
Have you seen the new US penny? I can’t identify the shield on the back side. It feels lighter than the old one.
A division into the USSA and the USA.
