Little-known fact: Obama's failed stimulus program cost more than the Iraq war

Expect to hear a lot about how much the Iraq war cost in the days ahead from Democrats worried about voter wrath against their unprecedented spending excesses.
The meme is simple: The economy is in a shambles because of Bush's economic policies and his war in Iraq. As American Thinker's Randall Hoven points out, that's the message being peddled by lefties as diverse as former Clinton political strategist James Carville, economist Joseph Stiglitz, and The Nation's Washington editor, Christopher Hayes.
The key point in the mantra is an alleged $3 trillion cost for the war. Well, it was expensive to be sure, in both blood and treasure, but, as Hoven notes, the CBO puts the total cost at $709 billion. To put that figure in the proper context of overall spending since the war began in 2003, Hoven provides this handy CBO chart showing the portion of the annual deficit attributable to the conflict:

But there is much more to be said of this data and Hoven does an admirable job of summarizing the highlights of such an analysis:
* Obama's stimulus, passed in his first month in office, will cost more than the entire Iraq War -- more than $100 billion (15%) more.
* Just the first two years of Obama's stimulus cost more than the entire cost of the Iraq War under President Bush, or six years of that war.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Other American Thinker opines: Presidents have been wrong. Other presidents have been misguided. Other presidents have been weak and pusillanimous and pathetic. 

Only one truly disdains America. His name is Barack Obama.
According to the Washington Times, the report Obama gave to the UN Commission on Human Rights:
describes how the United States discriminates against the disabled, homosexuals, women, Native Americans, blacks, Hispanics and those who don't speak English. There is the expected pandering to Muslims...the report notes that until recently, the U.S. engaged in torture, unlawfully detained terrorist suspects and illegally spied on Americans communicating with terrorists ... but the report assures readers that Mr. Obama has been putting a stop to all that.
This odious report has placed America -- us -- on a list of human rights violators that includes Iran, North Korea, and Sudan. And Mr. Obama and his administration have done it purposefully, intentionally, and with malice aforethought.
The truth, on the other hand, is that every demographic group mentioned in the report as victimized by America is better off in America than in any other country on earth. That's why they stay here. If they don't like America, they're free to leave at any time. We're not the Soviet Union or China, restricting population flow. European glories are only a plane ticket away. according to Obama, splinter groups of Americans (including women, who compose a majority of the population) are hapless and defenseless victims of our "downright mean" country, a description coined by Mrs. Obama during Mr. Obama's campaign for president.

Department of Justice ditches red, white and blue stars and stripes

Bruce Cunningham
Well, how interesting! It seems the U.S. Department of Justice has changed its  website. Gone are the colorful red, white and blue U.S. flag decorations on the page,

replaced by stark black and white.

And at the top of the page, is a rather interesting quote:
"The common law is the will of mankind, issuing from the life of the people."
Catchy, huh? Just one tiny little (too small to be relevant obviously) point -- the quote is from C. Wilfred Jenks, who in the 1930's was a leading proponent of the "international law" movement, which had as its goal to impose a global common law and which backed ‘global workers' rights.' 

Call it Marxism, call it Progressivism, call it Socialism -- under any of those names it definitely makes the DOJ look corrupt in their sleek, new black website with Marxist accessories to match. 
The quote at the beginning of this post is credited to Jenks, a man who made a place at the collective table for socialists and communists at the U.N., and inspired the global “workers rights movement.” Jenks was a long-time member of the United Nation’s International Labor Organization and the author of a number of globalist tracts, including a set of essays published back in 1958 entitled The Common Law of Mankind. Jenks also belonged to The League of Nations.   See for yourself:

Further infomation on this was posted by World Net Daily's Bob Unruh:

In the interest of full info, please read what the U.S. House has to say: 

The United States Justice Department has launched a redesigned website, described by some as "Darth Vaderish" for replacing a waving flag banner with a black panel. But the biggest concern raised by critics is a quote posted at the top of the page attributed to a 1930s globalist. The words are, "The common law is the will of Mankind issuing from the Life of the People." According to U.S. House documentation, the quote is one of the multitude of statements engraved outside the Justice building in Washington. The full phrase is, "The common law is the will of mankind issuing from the life of the people, framed through mutual confidence, sanctioned by the light of reason.'' According to The American Spectator, which has documented the controversy, some attorneys believed the quote was pulled or adapted from the writing of the 18th–century British jurist Sir William Blackstone, who "influenced not only British law, but also the American constitutional and legal system." However, the report cites "other Department of Justice employees" who say the quote comes from British lawyer D. Wilfred Jenks, author of "The Common Law of Mankind" essays in the 1950s.  [Regardless of where they got the quote, this is one more move this administration has taken to remove the American flag and patriotism from our government, and in this case, to highlight and promote a quote which no one really noticed before now. Hat tip to Dan!] ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- From Google: "Mexican drug cartels literally do control parts of Arizona," he said. "They literally have scouts on the high points in the mountains and in the hills and they literally control movement. They have radios, they have optics, they have night-vision goggles as good as anything law enforcement has. "This is going on here in Arizona," he said. "This is 70 to 80 miles from the border - 30 miles from the fifth-largest city in the United States." He said he asked the Obama administration for 3,000 National Guard soldiers to patrol the border, but what he got were 15 signs. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- From Fox News: Republican lawmakers are expressing shock over a Labor Department ad campaign that offers government assistance to illegal immigrants who think they're getting shortchanged for their work -- and at least one of them is planning to write to Labor Secretary Hilda Solis for an explanation. The initiative appears to contradict labor law -- cited on the Labor Department's own website -- which states that employers may hire only people who work legally in the United States. The Obama administration has vowed to crack down on employers who hire illegal immigrants, employers that Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has called "evildoers."
But Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, the ranking member on the House Judiciary subcommittee on immigration, called the announcement "an explicit invitation for illegal immigrants to bring the resources and power of the Department of Labor to bear against American employers."
"It is shameful that Secretary Solis has to be reminded that her primary duty is owed to the American people, and not to those who have illegally entered our country," King said in a written statement. "The Obama administration needs to realize that the American people have a right to have their immigration laws enforced."
World Net Daily opines: You work hard for your family and to feed this country. You deserve to get paid every dollar you earn and never less than the federal minimum wage. Housing and transportation provided by the employer must be safe. You must be provided safe drinking water, toilets and hand-washing facilities at the job at no cost. And above all, you must be provided a safe workplace. These laws protect you – whether you're documented or not. If there is a problem, the U.S. Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division can help. 
"For a government agency to protect lawbreakers in this fashion may seem unbelievable but not if you consider the source," Judicial Watch stated on its website. "A former California congresswoman, Solis has close ties to the influential La Raza movement that advocates open borders and rights for illegal immigrants. She made the protection of undocumented workers a major priority upon being named labor secretary, assuring illegal aliens that 'if you work in this country, you are protected by our laws.'"
