Linda Tripp died this morning with her husband and daughter at her bedside, DailyMail.com has learned. Tripp, whose taped conversations with Monica Lewinsky nearly brought down the Clinton presidency, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer less than a week ago when she took herself to hospital suffering from stomach pains. Husband Dieter Rausch and their daughter Allison Foley were the only relatives allowed to be in Tripp's room in the ICU due to coronavirus protocols. Speaking exclusively to DailyMail.com Diane Spreadbury, one of Tripp's closest friends for more than two decades, described her as, 'A wonderful person.'

Comments:

Oh, my. Just saw this headline on Drudge. So sad. I used to live near Middleburg, VA, and once visited the beautiful Christmas store that Tripp owned with her husband. Tripp endured vicious criticism for her role in the Clinton Lewinsky affair. She had more class than both of them. I also lost a dear friend to pancreatic cancer last summer. It is a cruel disease.

She saved Monica Lewinsky’s life. Had she not told her to save the dress and record the phone calls, Monica would have simply committed Arkancide in Ft. Marcy Park.

I forgot to add that I visited Linda's store with my friend, with whom I served overseas in the early 80's. We used to go to the Christmas bazaar at a local church in Middleburg, and always stopped in Linda's store.

This is truly sad. One of the most courageous person to come out of the 90's. She knew her life would be in danger for exposing Clinton as the serial molester and rapist he is. My sister-in-law was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer right before Christmas. She is undergoing chemo right now but the survival rate is not very good.

If Monica Lewinsky hasn't figured out by now that Linda Tripp protected her, she never will. Linda Tripp was a brave woman who could have ignored the Clinton's corruption, kept her head down and continued her Federal career. In an act of vengeance, the Clinton machine (probably Hillary) took time out from trashing the White House and fired Linda Tripp on their way out the door. She was a far better person than the Clinton trash. May she rest in peace, knowing that she stood up for decency and honor.

Rest in Peace, Linda. This is so sad. Pancreatic cancer is terrible. Because there are no nerves in the Pancreas itself, you don't know there is a problem until it is too late. Meanwhile, BJ and Billary get to enjoy the highlife. This isn't right. Maybe Monica will finally stand and speak up. God must have a reason for all this, but, what.

#7,#13,#17,#19- To her credit, Monica Lewinsky issued a tweet on August 8, 2020 at 1:45 PM that read: “no matter the past, upon hearing that linda tripp is very seriously ill, I hope for her recovery. I can’t imagine how difficult this is for her family.” Although not put into specific words of apology, it may not be inappropriate to suggest that these many years later, Monica Lewinsky has had a change of heart and now understands and appreciates what Linda Tripp did for her at great personal cost to her own (Linda’s) future and safety. Without question, Lucianne’s wise counsel to Linda Tripp is to be commended. In so many ways Lucianne has been a blessing not only to Linda Tripp and Monica Lewinsky, but to this country as well for the creation of her website that permits a treasured exchange of news, opinion, courage, encouragement, and patriotism. Thank you, bless you dear Lucianne. Rest in peace Linda.

Here is one more reason to respect and love the brave men and women of the Portland Police Bureau, standing up for 72 straight nights of riots destroying the formerly lovely downtown of Oregon’s largest city. They have not only kept their sense of humor, one among them is applying Alinsky’s tactics to the thugs. Watch and listen to the video in this tweet: Male PPB officers detaining a female protestor and patting her down w/ no female officers present. I asked if they had a female officer to do patdown, one responded by “nope” the other said, “how do you know I don’t identify as a female?”

In the last couple of weeks we have witnessed people, most of them white, kneeling before black protestors and activists as a supposed gesture of repentance for their crimes of “white privilege” and tolerating “systemic racism.” The kneeling penitents include not just ordinary people, but police officers, National Guardsmen, and, in a shocking self-debasement of the world’s greatest democratic republic, a gaggle of House Representatives adorned with “culturally appropriated” African kente cloth scarves.

Here is what Jesus says about the ruling class of his day. He said this after he entered Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, shortly after he overturned the tables of the money-changers: “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when you have succeeded, you make them twice as much a child of hell as you are.” There can be a spirit of ugliness that inhabits a ruling class, let’s call it pharisaical hardness. When that spirit of ugliness rears its head, it deserves confrontation -- Jesus made that quite clear.

Writing on the 1984 vice presidential candidacy of Geraldine Ferraro ahead of Joe Biden's announcement of a female running mate, Dowd in a Saturday column wrote that it had been "36 years since a man and a woman ran together on a Democratic Party ticket." That claim ignored the 2016 presidential election,

The Seattle City Council voted unanimously on Wednesday in support of police budget proposals that would lay off 100 police officers, despite objections from the city's mayor and police chief. The city council began to reexamine the police department's budget earlier this summer in response to anti-police protests. Mayor Jenny Durkan (D.) and police chief Carmen Best criticized the most recent set of proposals, which would also end the removal of homeless people from the city's streets and cut salaries for police leadership. Durkan said the cuts would hit the "most diverse class" of officers the city has ever had, as police union rules mandate that layoffs are determined by seniority.
