Men in black [how the Supreme Court is destroying America] by Mark R Levin( Sound Recording )
9 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 409 libraries worldwide
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

As Director of the FBI for over five decades, J. Edgar Hoover has left a profound and lasting legacy on this most celebrated institution.

From the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Jr. and Martin Luther King, Jr., to the FBI crusades against organized crime and the Communist party, to Hoover's disputed sexual orientation and the "secret files" he allegedly kept to blackmail hostile members of Congress, here is the gripping narrative of a government agency caught on a tightrope between presidential administrations and the limits of the law
Into the rising sun in their own words, World War II's Pacific veterans reveal the heart of combat by Patrick K O'Donnell( Sound Recording )
11 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 202 libraries worldwide
Patrick O'Donnell uncovers the hidden history of World War II by tracking down and interviewing its most elite troops: the Rangers, Airborne, Marines, and First Special Service Force, forerunners to America's Special Forces. These veterans were often the first in and the last out of every conflict, from Guadalcanal and Burma to the Philippines and the black sands of Iwo Jima. They faced a cruel enemy willing to try anything, including kamikaze flights and human-guided torpedoes. Over the course of the war, they had spearheaded D-Day-sized beach assaults, encountered cannibalism, suffered friendly-fire incidents, and endured torture as prisoners of war. By at last telling their stories, these men present an unvarnished look at the war on the ground, a final gift from aging warriors who have already given so much

O'Neill debated John Kerry on The Dick Cavett Show in 1971, successfully demolishing Kerry's accusations against his fellow troops in Vietnam. Find out why John Kerry is unfit for command, as told by the men who served with him

Murder in Brentwood by Mark Fuhrman( file )
6 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in English and held by 151 libraries worldwide
For O.J. Simpson to get away with murder, an innocent cop had to be destroyed. That was the cynical strategy of the Simpson defense. But as certainty about Simpson's guilt grew, so did outrage about the scapegoating of the brilliant detective Mark Fuhrman. Now, the former LAPD detective tells his side of the story in this damning expose. Fuhrman takes the reader on a detective's journey through the crucial first twenty-four hours of the investigation. We uncover not only the bloody glove but explosive new evidence, recorded by Fuhrman and his partner at the scene but astonishingly never presented at the trial. Fuhrman's own hand-drawn maps of the crime scene and his reconstruction of the murders leave no doubt about what really happened on June 12, 1994. New revelations about the incompetence and corruption that pervaded the "Trial of the Century" will set the record straight
