“‘I’ll say this plainly, I’ve said it before – Taxation is theft. It presumes the government has a higher claim on our property than we do,’ says Judge Andrew Napolitano, the host of Fox Business’ Freedom Watch and the author of the new book, It Is Dangerous to Be Right When the Government Is Wrong: The Case for Personal Freedom.
“Reason’s Nick Gillespie sat down with the outspoken libertarian commentator to discuss topics ranging from abortion (the judge is fiercely pro-life) to Occupy Wall Street (he welcomes the protest against corporatism) to Rep. Ron Paul (“the Barry Goldwater” of our moment) to the role of religion in the quest for freedom.”
“….the President is the Chief Executive Officer of this corporation called the United States of America…I don’t think you see any seriousness coming out of the White House.” Former congressman, Allen West, March 9, 2011, interview with Judge Napolitano:
What is the lesson of Abraham Lincoln? Can we forgive so many violations of the Constitution? Here’s a video.
Andrew P. Napolitano joined FOX News Channel (FNC) in January 1998 and currently serves as the senior judicial analyst. He provides legal analysis on both FNC and FOX Business Network (FBN). He is also host of FOX Business’ “Freedom Watch” show.
Judge Napolitano is the youngest life-tenured Superior Court judge in the history of the State of New Jersey. While on the bench from 1987 to 1995, Judge Napolitano tried more than 150 jury trials and sat in all parts of the Superior Court — criminal, civil, equity and family.
He has handled thousands of sentencings, motions, hearings and divorces. For 11 years, he served as an adjunct professor of constitutional law at Seton Hall Law School, where he provided instruction in constitutional law and jurisprudence. Judge Napolitano returned to private law practice in 1995 and began television broadcasting in the same year.
Judge Napolitano has written three books: “Constitutional Chaos: What Happens When the Government Breaks Its Own Laws”; a New York Times bestseller, “The Constitution in Exile: How the Federal Government Has Seized Power by Rewriting the Supreme Law of the Land”; and “A Nation of Sheep.” His writings have also been published in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, The New York Sun, The Baltimore Sun, The (New London) Day, The Seton Hall Law Review, The New Jersey Law Journal and The Newark Star-Ledger. He lectures nationally on the Constitution and human freedom.
Judge Napolitano received his undergraduate degree from Princeton University in 1972, and received his Juris Doctor from University of Notre Dame in 1975.
Praise for the Judge source
“Judge Napolitano’s tremendous knowledge of American law, history, and politics, as well as his passion for freedom, shines through 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. I am pleased to recommend this book to anyone who cares about the direction of this country and wants to understand how we got where we are, and what we need to do to regain our liberties.”
Congressman Ron Paul, MD (R-TX)
“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.”

“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
