Men in Black: How the Supreme Court is Destroying America

Recorded on February 15, 2005

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.
