Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium
The Supreme Court endorses sodomy, terrorist rights, and
importing foreign law.
Are these in the Constitution? You're right: They're not. But
these days the Constitution is no restraint on our out-of-control
Supreme Court - a Court that imperiously strikes down laws and
imposes new ones purely on its own arbitrary whims. There's a word
for that: tyranny. In Men in Black: How the Supreme Court is
Destroying America, radio talk show host and legal scholar
Mark Levin dissects the judicial tyranny that is robbing us of our
freedoms and stuffing the ballot box in favor of liberal policies.
If you've ever wondered why - no matter who holds political power -
American society always seems to drift to the left, Levin has the
answer: the black-robed justices of the Supreme Court, subverting
democracy in favor of their own liberal views. In throwing the book
at our own judicial system - in particular, American judges who
ignore the Constitution and dismantle the rights of American
citizens in everyday court proceedings - Levin shares jaw-dropping
examples of judicial power grabs and liberal power plays by judges,
whose decades of judicial activism have made the Supreme Court the
most potent threat to American freedom.
MARK R. LEVIN is one of America's preeminent conservative
commentators and constitutional lawyers. He is the President of
Landmark Legal Foundation, host of a number-one rated talk radio
program on WABC in New York, and a contributing editor for National
Review Online. Levin also served as a top advisor to several
members of President Ronald Reagan's Cabinet, including service as
the Chief of Staff to the Attorney General of the United States,
Deputy Solicitor at the Department of the Interior, Deputy
Assistant Secretary at the Department of Education, and Associate
Director of Presidential Personnel. In 2001, the American
Conservative Union honored him with the prestigious Ronald Reagan
Award. He graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Temple University in 1977
at the age of nineteen, the same year he was elected to the
Cheltenham Township School Board in Pennsylvania. In 1980 he
graduated from Temple University School of Law.
