Publisher's Summary

The Supreme Court endorses terrorists' rights, flag burning, and importing foreign law. Is that in the Constitution? You're right: it's not. But these days the Constitution is no restraint on our out-of-control Supreme Court. The Court imperiously strikes down laws and imposes new ones purely on its own arbitrary whims. Even though liberals like John Kerry are repeatedly defeated at the polls, the majority on the allegedly "conservative" Supreme Court reflects their views and wields absolute power.

There's a word for this: tyranny.

In Men in Black, radio talk-show host and legal scholar Mark R. 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, Mark Levin has the answer: the black-robed justices of the Supreme Court, subverting democracy in favor of their own liberal agenda.

Decades of judicial activism have made the Supreme Court the most potent threat to American freedom. Men in Black, as Rush Limbaugh writes in his introduction, "couldn't be more timely or important, as liberals continue shamelessly to thwart the people, Congress, the president, and state governments by using the courts to dictate national policy....Men in Black is a tremendously important and compelling book."

It could very well be the most important book you hear this year.

A mockery of everything this country stands for!

Coming to this book with an open mind to see how an author looks at our judicial system left me unquestionably irrate. Our reason and belief in Liberty must be restored in this country, my only regret is the thought of people buying in to this hypothesis.

An accurate account of the S.Ct. case law.

This book is a concise and timely synopsis of the history of the Supreme Court's case law as it pertains to the Consitution. A good listen for anyone who wants a basic understanding of the subject or a short refresher course on the Court.

The way the courts should be

This book is dead on when it comes to the way our courts should be. If you believe that elected officials instead of activist judges should write laws, give this book a listen. This book is a large dose of facts and small dose of opinion. I will have to pick up the hard cover for reference material.

Beware the reviews you read

If you see a review with less than 3 stars, be assured, there are two reasons.
1. The reviewer has an IQ in the single digits. OR
2. The reviewer wants none other than to disparage a book, any book that supports the US Constitution and/or condemns legislating from the bench.
If you want the truth, you will not be disappointed in this book

Men in Black

I came in neutral, but with interest because of the current discussions in the media. I judge that Levin treats this subject fairly and with a lot of knowledge that it takes years to accumulate. No doubt this is on the conservative side of neutral, but still fair. To someone else?s commit about limiting the Government, the Supreme Court is just as much a part of the Federal Government as the other two braches and also needs to be limited. If you didn?t get that the first time, go back and listen again.

A concise account of an originalist viewpoint

First off, Levin is Rush Limbaugh's lawyer, so know what you're getting before you buy.
Beyond that, I think he does a good job defending his viewpoint that the originalist take on the Constitution is the proper one. If one looks at why Justice Ginsberg and Justice Thomas are almost always on opposite side of issues, this book does a good job of defining why Thomas takes the side he takes, and no consideration is made to defend Ginsberg.
Because Levin has such a problem with those who subscribe to the Living Constitution arguement, don't expect a defense of that at all.
Overall, I think it is good for what it is. Read it like you would a long editorial in a newspaper.
If you look at the law conservatively, this book my help you understand the legal defense of that view. If you are more liberal, this may at least help you understand why the other side sees things so differently.

Eye Opening

you may not agree with his politics (Levin is clearly a conservative) but his look behind the scenes at the supreme court is very insightful. I certainly came away with a better understanding of why many people feel that the supreme court is usurping the powers of the other branches of government. The reviewer that claimed that Levin has no idea how the supreme court works-either didn't read the book, or is letting his/her politics get in the way of his/her judgement. While you may not agree with his politics, 30 minutes of listening to this audiobook will disprove you of the notion that Levin has no idea of how the supreme court works. In fact, if there is a downside to this book, it is that is does tend to slip into the nitty gritty details of the court, but I suppose Levin does this to protect himself from the charge that he doesn't know what he's talking about.

Prescribed reading for every American

Eye-opening... yes; Scary, .. yes; factual and on target;... absolutely!
This is perhaps the most important book you will read in this decade, especially if it starts the debate to correct our out-of-control Judiciary.
Our country is not run by the President or Congress and it is not guided by our Constitution. It is run by nine un-elected men and women in a job for life that judge by their own agenda, except for the few true Constitutionalist. The Supreme Court and Judicial System is the last political power of the Liberals of this country determined to direct the future by special interest, social agenda, and without God. It is the path for your future and your children's future. What Liberals cannot do in the voting poles they are determined to do without majority in the courts.
This is a wake-up call for the rest of us.

Way off base

As an attorney, I was astounded at how uninformed the author is. I read this book via the local library and was greatly disappointed. For someone who claims to be a legal scholar, the author certainly does not understand how the law--or the Constitution--works.

If you buy into the "conservative" idea that the courts should be subservient to the other two branches of government, then this book will already appeal to you. If you reject that idea, then this book will irritate you. If you are uncertain, look elsewhere for the arguments supporting this position.

An ULTRA-Conservative Rant that goes too far

This book is equally littered with salient criticisms of the court and frantic, logically inconsistent ultra-conservative ravings. Not a bad read, and undoubtably historically astute, but make no mistake: this was written from atop a soapbox, not from a chair in the library.

Much needed warning

A much needed warning in a time when a self-anointed elite believes that they can rule over us, without any accountability or feedback.
