Suicide Pact

“There is no one more qualified than Judge Andrew Napolitano to serve as our guide through American legal and political history to show how power-hungry politicians have used the magic words ‘national security’ to break free from the chains of the Constitution and put us in the chains of authoritarianism.’”

Former Congressman RON PAUL (R–Texas)

“Former Judge, law professor and author, Andrew Napolitano documents how unlimited perpetual wars concentrate unaccountable power in the Presidency and proceed to shred constitutional boundaries and due processes, crush public budgets and expand an American Empire that, like all Empires, will eventually devour itself. Read the gripping details about how our constitutional balance of powers and individual rights are being repealed de-facto by the merger of political and economic power that led to President Eisenhower’s farewell warning regarding the “military-industrial complex” and its destructive impact on our liberties. Whether you’re Left or Right, Napolitano’s documented thesis will resonate.”

RALPH NADER, Author of Unstoppable: The Emerging Left-Right Alliance to Dismantle the Corporate State

“With the judiciousness of a judge (which he once was), the perspective of a historian (which he here proves himself to be), and the passion of an alarmed patriot (which his many viewers on Fox News know him to be), Judge Napolitano calls attention to the foremost constitutional challenge of our day, that of circumscribing executive power.“

GEORGE WILL, Syndicated Columnist

“Today, our constitutional liberties are under assault, and Judge Napolitano’s sharp legal analysis documenting the steady erosion of American freedom should be a wake-up call for Republicans, Democrats, Independents, and Libertarians alike.”

Sen. TED CRUZ (R-Texas)

“Our Founders agreed that when there are not enough citizens informed on why they are Americans in this self-governing republic, the Constitution would flounder. And this is why Judge Andrew P. Napolitano’s “Suicide Pact” is so greatly needed and so continually absorbing a public service. Never before in our history have so many Americans — students and adults — been so unaware of the disappearance of the separation of powers ignored by imperial administrations from Bush-Cheney and now the even more un-American regime of President Obama. In “Suicide Pact,” Judge Napolitano, as always, brings the Constitution and our individual personal liberties alive -– thereby strengthening the active American identities of this and future generations. No matter who is elected President in 2016, this is the book to revive us as Americans.”

NAT HENTOFF, Author of, The War on the Bill of Rights and then Gathering Resistance; Living The Bill of Rights: How To Be An Authentic American; and The First Freedom: The Tumultuous History of Free Speech in America

Nobody in America today is a stronger and more energetic champion of individual rights, natural freedom, and strictly limited government than Fox News’ Judge Andrew P. Napolitano. Suicide Pact is his best work yet. It’s a can’t-put-it-down history lesson, a page-turning legal argument, and his single-strongest statement ever on just how far America has strayed from its promise of being a government of laws and not of power-hungry men.

Suicide Pact doesn’t just dazzle with its historical reach and depress with its unvarnished depiction of executive-branch power grabs; it provides a map for how we can all fight back and move into a future that delivers fully on individual freedom.

Even when I don’t agree with him (a rare occurrence!), I learn more from Judge Napolitano than any other legal analyst and writer. If you care about your freedom, your country, and your future, read Suicide Pact and pass it along to everyone you know.

Lies the Government Told You: Myth, Power, and Deception in American History

“Judge Napolitano’s tremendous knowledge of American law, history, and politics, as well as his passion for freedom, shines through in Lies the Government Told You, as he details how throughout American history, politicians and government officials have betrayed the ideals of personal liberty and limited government.”

Former Congressman RON PAUL (R–Texas), from the Foreword

Constitutional Chaos – What Happens When the Government Breaks It’s Own Laws

“This book is a wake-up call for all who value personal freedom and limited government.”

RUSH LIMBAUGH

“Has the war on terrorism taken away some of your rights? In a non-ideological way, Judge Andrew P. Napolitano answers that crucial question. This book will open your eyes.”

BILL O’REILLY

“In all of the American media, Judge Napolitano is the most persistent, uncompromising guardian of both the letter and the spirit of the Constitution. . .”

The Constitution in Exile: How the Federal Government Has Seized Power by Rewriting the Supreme Law of the Land

“Whatever happened to states rights, limited government, and natural law? Judge Napolitano, in his own inimitable style, takes us on a fascinating tour of the destruction of constitutional government. If you want to know how the federal government got so big and fat, read this book. Agree or disagree, this book will make you think.”

SEAN HANNITY

“Judge Napolitano engages here in what I do every day on my program-make you think. There’s no question that potential Supreme Court nominees and what our Constitution says and doesn’t say played a major role for many voters in our last couple of elections. What the judge does here is detail why the federal government claims it can regulate as well as tax everything in sight as it grows and grows. Agree or disagree with him-you need to read his latest book, think, and begin to arm yourself as you enter this important debate.”

 RUSH LIMBAUGH

“At a time when we are, in Benjamin Franklin’s words, sacrificing essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, here comes the judge with what should be mandatory reading for the executive branch cronies who are busy stealing power while they think we’re not watching. Thank goodness the judge is watching and speaking truth to power. More than a book, this is an emergency call to philosophical arms, one we must heed before it’s too late.” –

ALAN COLMES

“Does anyone understand the vision of America’s founding fathers? The courts and Congress apparently don’t have a clue. But Judge Andrew P. Napolitano does, and so will you, if you read The Constitution in Exile.”

BILL O’REILLY

“In all of the American media, Judge Andrew P. Napolitano is the most persistent, uncompromising guardian of both the letter and the spirit of the Constitution, very much including the Bill of Rights. Increasingly, our Constitution is in clear and present danger. Judge Napolitano–in The Constitution in Exile–has challenged all Americans across party lines to learn the extent of this constitutional crisis.”

Dred Scott’s revenge

The best history of the law and race I’ve ever read… Judge Napolitano has written a challenge to anyone who thinks they understand the roots of America’s tangled race relations. 

JUAN WILLIAMS, National Public Radio

The Attorney General ignited a firestorm by suggesting that ours was a nation of ‘cowards’ when it comes to conversations about race. Judge Andrew Napolitano is no coward. His brave and incisive book takes the calamitous, contemptuous Dred Scott decision, which held  slaves to be “non-persons,” as its starting point. In this sharply written narrative, the Judge shows us how race remains the driving force in almost every aspect of American life, from education to law enforcement. Dred Scott, the person, would have appreciated this graphic and honest appraisal. 

GERALDO RIVERA, Fox News Channel

Judge Napolitano… has written a riveting guide to the tumultuous history of our civil rights journey, coming to a post-racial society.

NAT HENTOFF, Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, senior fellow at the Cato Institute

Dred Scott’s Revenge makes it impossible for the self-anointed ‘experts’ on race relations to ever accuse the country of being too afraid to have a national discussion on race. Judge Napolitano lays out 150 years of our national experience… and places the blame for much of what’s wrong squarely at the feet of those responsible: the federal government and politicians whose plans, policies, and programs trashed the Constitution. Compelling and timely reading written for the layman, not lawyers! 

GLENN BECK, Nationally syndicated radio talk show host; Host, The Glenn Beck Program, Fox News Channel

It is said President Obama gave the definitive speech on race; well, Judge Andrew Napolitano has written the definitive book. [He] has broken new ground as he examines the precious link between the words men write about freedom and the true freedom of all men.

Gov. MICHAEL STEELE, Chair, Republican National Committee

A Nation of Sheep

Dangerous to be Right When the Government is Wrong

Judge Andrew P. Napolitano is the Thomas Paine of our time. This book is Common Sense 2.0. Every page is imbued with a fierce, clear-eyed passion for liberty. It will inspire Americans across the political spectrum, as it exposes the myth of the omnipotent state in its every manifestation. 

EDWARD H. CRANE, President of the Cato Institute

If I believed in reincarnation, I would think that Judge Andrew P. Napolitano was one of the great lawyers of the American Revolution come back to inspire us. The Judge is a marvel, and so is this book. If you care about freedom, read it; buy a stack of copies, and spread the word.

LLEWWLLYN H. ROCKWELL, Jr, Founder and Chair, Ludwig von Mises Institute

Liberals and Progressives should read this book to discover both where they agree with pure libertarians and where they vigorously disagree, Judge Napolitano gives us an energetic double-header.
