"Justice Loses It's Stars & Stripes"

clipped from

Justice Loses Its Stars and Stripes

What's black and white and "red" all over? The Department of
Justice's newly designed website. Gone are the
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."

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
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.
