Well, that's interesting

They've changed the header at the Department of Justice homepage. Used to have stars & stripes, now it's black & white with this slogan: The common law is the will of mankind, issuing from the life of the people.

I got curious and dug around and found this is actually almost a year old(and no, I don't know how I missed it). I found this:
But other Department of Justice employees say the quote originates from British lawyer, C. Wilfred Jenks, who back in the late 1930s and after World War II was a leading figure in the "international law" movement, which sought to impose a global, common law, and advocated for global workers rights. Jenks was a long-time member of the United Nation's International Labor Organization, and author of a number of globalist tracts, including a set of essays published back in 1958, entitled The Common Law of Mankind.
Well, isn't that special?
Most telling: Jenks, as director of the ILO is credited with putting in place the first Soviet senior member of the UN organization, and also with creating an environment that allowed the ILO to give "observer status" to the Palestinian Liberation Organization, and to issue anti-Israeli statements, which precipitated efforts by the U.S. Congress to withdraw U.S. membership from the ILO. The U.S. actually did withdraw in the mid-1970s due to the organization's leftist leanings.

"It was Jenks's efforts that helped make the ILO a tool of the socialist and communist movement," says one of the DOJ lawyers. "We used to joke about how fitting it was that this was Janet Reno's favorite quote to use in speeches, and now the Obama folks think it encapsulates out department's mission."

Suggestions to highlight quotes from the U.S. Constitution or Bill of Rights or quotes from the Founders, the Federalist Papers or prominent American jurists were quickly shot down by the Department of Justice's media and new media teams, according to DOJ sources familiar with the design process, and the White House communications shop was given input to the overall design as well.

And from the same people who brought us this change, who do they want in charge of the EffingBI? Jamie Gorelick. Yes, that bitch. Insty has a number of links, including that she's another Friend of Angelo, like the corrupt Chris Dodd.

From a letter to a WI politician who doesn't want to meet with one of his actual constituents:
I have spoken with a number of Democratic senators and assemblymen over the past month. More than one has described the budget repair controversy as "war." So, Brett, I want to ask you straight out: Do you see it as "war?" And if you do - because I am in dissent with your position - do you see me as your enemy?
Well, you're not a union member or a Democrat-at-any-cost and actually put out facts on the protests, so yes, he does.

Told son a couple of years back that between the newer guided artillery shells, THEL maybe coming online and so forth some armored unit was going to wind up calling itself the Slammers; the Israelis now have the close-in defense system working, so...

If you have more communists in your cabinet than Vladimir Putin, you might be President Obama.

If one of these Senators is yours, might ask them to grill Melson like a weenie on a campout on Gunwalker.

Remember the Washington State Patrol fishing expedition on AR15 buyers? A bit more info. From the answers I can't figure out if
This was the fishing expedition we think,
Someone just didn't think through what they were asking for, or
They're trying to back up from a really big mistake they thought they could get away with.

Enough. Chilly but sunny outside, and I need to go.

Washington is quite schizoid as pertains to gun laws. Our Empress and her sycophants are rabid libtards elected from the Puget Sound basin which is also rabidly leftist. So it isn't out of character for the WSP, based in the rarified atmosphere of Olympia to try to pull something like this. On the other hand, we have State pre-emption on local gun laws, open carry, and shall issue. Every time the libtards try an anti gun ploy they get their asses kicked. One recent one was a very restrictive law they tried to pass by initiative. Backed by Bill Gates, it was defeated by more than 60/40 in a general election. Every few years they try something again and every few years, another ass kicking. It's been a while so the usual suspects think we've all forgotten. Time for a boot or six up the legislative poop chute, I guess. It's what they understand. I wrote my State Rep. a dead tree letter asking what in all that's holy these nincompoops were trying to do and why by all that's holy are any of them still on the State payroll? She usually answers. Almost always it's a computer printer letter with a real live ink signature. She's a lib, but polite and responsive.

Funny that the same guys who love the idea of common law hate jury nullification, which is common law in it's purest form.
