Lucianne Goldberg Now: Where Is the Literary
Agent Today?

Original Article

Posted By: FlyRight, 9/8/2021 7:26:24 PM

Lucianne Goldberg is a conservative literary agent who was an important player in the Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky scandal because she urged Pentagon civil servant Linda Tripp to tape her conversations with Lewinsky about the president. Goldberg’s role in the saga was resurrected by ABC in 2019 in a two-hour documentary called Truth and Lies, and she plays a key role in the new FX series, Impeachment: American Crime Story, which chronicles the saga of Lewinsky, Tripp, and the president.

I never understood why people felt they had to get news links from Drudge when they could get everything they really needed to know from Lucianne without the clutter. Now that Drudge has gone to the darkside there's no longer any excuse. This and Freerepublic have been my primary sources since they were first available mainly because they attract a better class of reader. Live long and prosper.

There are other sites for the latest headlines; our esteemed hostess has provided a forum for news and civilized discussion that is very hard to find anywhere else. Many blessings to you, dear Lucianne - and thank you.

Been with Lucianne since the turn of the century. Seen a great deal in that time. She was kind enough, also a while back, to send an Ldot pin to me. It's in a safe. I sincerely hope this continues into the future. She is a great lady.

Many Conservatives have been 'social distancing' much of their lives. I'm not a joiner and I live way down the dirt road. But......I have enjoyed the community of writers and thinkers graciously hosted by Mz. Lucianne and her loyal staff. I don't even know how many years I've been pontificating and saving the world through Mz. Lucianne's good offices but I am eternally grateful for all the highly opinionated and often erudite company.

I watched the first episode of the FX series, Impeachment. I was sorry to see it continued the same dem narrative that was constructed at the time. The Republicans were just waiting for an excuse to get Bill Clinton, and all the characters that weren’t Clintonistas were either crazy, stupid, petty, vengeful, or some combination of such. I adore the actress who plays Ms. Lucianne, but she was portrayed as a cold, calculating witch who was out to get anybody she could, just to sell a book. And for the kicker, Vince Foster really did kill himself. It just made me angry all over again.

Amen to all commenters and my heartfelt thanks to our gracious hostess of this Salon who has insisted since the beginning that we mind our manners...which in recent years has become increasingly difficult! Lots of bloody tongue-biting going on, I'm sure. Like many of you this site is my first click in the morning and more times during the day than I can count. An added note...I've donated frequently to ensure its continuance, but today I was restricted to only $50. What did I do wrong? Love and appreciate all of you.

If I may, I will tell you the first time I learned of Lucianne was during my daily listen of Rush. Unfortunately, The Maha Rushie was off that day. He had some motor-mouthed rube in the Attila the Hun chair. I seem to recall this rube was named Hawn Shannity or somesuch. Regardless, Ms. L announced to the world that she was hoping to see that rodham-klintoon beast do a perp walk in handcuffs out of the People's House. Immediately, I fell in love! As soon as this site came on-line, I joined! In spite what some of her mods may argue, this site went on-line PRIOR to 2000! (Yes, I have argued with them about the inception date!) You may figure out that I am not a dimoRat liar by the Rush-related nym I selected. I have had the great fortune to have one or two little keyboard convos with Lady L. over the years. The last thing I'll bore everyone with is that I am particularly proud of the fact that I've many **MANY** years on this orb and I ALWAYS VOTE! ...and have *NEVER* - *EVER* voted for a dimoRat!

My mom Deedles introduced me to this wonderful site during the Clinton years. Ms Lucianne sent Mom a wonderful email when I posted on here asking for prayer after she suffered a stroke. She eventually passed away in 2004. I love this forum and this lady! My Lucianne pin which I inherited from Mom is on my motorcycle vest. Thank you for being here for us all these wonderful years, Ms Lucianne!

I've been around here for about twenty years--I think. (Memory fails as we age.) Lucianne has been a rock all that time. As with others, this is the first site I check every morning to find out what's going on. On a personal level, Lucianne provided invaluable assistance in launching my modest career as a political satirist back around the time Obama became president. I've thanked her privately for her help and here thank her publicly for believing in me and, along with Michael Walsh of Breitbart's, for giving me a forum to display my wares. I remain indebted to both.

I first found this site around 1997. Spent way too many hours reading and posting. The names were different back then, but even when we disagreed the family remained. Back then we could directly address each other and we often did. I sometimes wonder whatever happened to some of the regulars, like Eagle1, Miasmom and JanineC.

Clarification: Michael Walsh was editor of from 2010-2012. These days he writes columns for the New York Post and the Epoch Times, and he is a founder of, "dedicated to opposing the Environmentalist Movement's undermining of freedom and prosperity..." He is also the author of the recent "Last Stands: Why Men Fight When All Is Lost," a military history unlike no other that has won rave reviews.

I’ve been here forever also. Miss Lucianne is the best! I also think the most intelligent conservatives post here. I’ve learned a lot from them. I confess to being leery of Trump for president because I thought he would become a liberal once he won. Now, I’m so thankful he won and know he also won in 2020. What a mess we’re in now. I also miss some of the old posters like Stormcentr. She was always thoughtful and fair in my opinion. Thanks Lucianne for all you do.

Here since '98. I'd listen to Lucianne and Sidney's radio cast on the internet first thing in the morning, lowest tech and always fun and engaging. I remember the great music going into ad breaks and an occasional call from a lonely voice in the Frisco Bay area, Thomas Lifson. This site kept me sane as the 2000 election ground on for weeks. God bless you, Ms. G. And oh yeah, watching the FX series "Impeachment" and it's what you'd expect. Despite the paint by numbers portrayal of those on the right, the ugliness of the Clinton's and their enablers can be only so whitewashed.

My sister alerted me to Drudge and when the Clinton/Lewinsky scandal broke. I was hooked immediately and visited both sites numerous times daily. We had recipe-sharing "round tables" at Thanksgiving, including one year when the hilarious "whore squirrel" recipe became part of Lucianne history. There was also an amusing virtual cocktail party, and a group of posters planned a get-together and met in person on one occasion. We sympathized and suffered through several posters' terminal illnesses, and one couple who met on Lucianne eventually married; There also were a few annoying "trolls" who regularly visited and posted their anti-Conservative comments, but they were out-numbered and quickly put in their place! Lucianne continues to provide a wonderful escape from annoying liberal propaganda, and I'm so happy I found it those many years ago!

In this insane world, this site is my haven of reasoned thought. It is the place I go to first to read the news of the day. I can count on it to bring me the news, the good, bad, and ugly. Thankfully, the salon is never ugly here. We may disagree but it is always with respect and we need that in this crazy world. I don’t know if anyone else does this but I look forward to every comment. They inform me as to how people are reacting to the news and that is important to me. I sometimes learn more from the comments than I do from many of the articles. You guys are so smart, witty and just down right funny. It does have a family feel here which I so appreciate and that is all due to our gracious and lovely hostess, Lucianne. During many political ups and downs it has been my lifeline to sanity. When I have wanted to pull my hair out, I have found hope and humor here. While this is a different vehicle of friendship, it is a very important one to me. I feel a connection and camaraderie that is uplighting and gives me hope in the dismal world we are experiencing now. Thank you all for that. Miss Lucianne, I am so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful community. You are providing a service that is important and so needed. As we travel through the world, it’s wonderful to have a friendly place full of wonderful people who love this country. Each day that I am able to check in with my friends here to begin the day is a blessing. Thank you is not enough, but it is heartfelt.

I’ve been here since 1999. One day, back in 2000, I received a handwritten note in the mail. I did not recognize the return address. As I walked the quarter-mile trek from my mailbox back to our house, I began reading the handwritten words of thanks from Mrs. Goldberg herself. Her kind note is framed and hangs in my office. The ink has faded somewhat over the years, but I cherish this piece of history. My L.Dot pin is firmly affixed to the frame. Lucianne Goldberg is an unsung American hero who has, in many ways, shaped the course of our personal history. Through her website, we (the L-dot family) have gained knowledge and insight. We have learned much and taught others. Thank you, dear Ms. Lucianne. We treasure you and your staff for helping us stay connected during the highs and lows of our shared American Experience.

I go back to the times when this site was a chat room. When it switched over to a Salon, we got new passwords. I was on on the morning of 9/11. I turned on the TV to see the second tower hit. Luçianne is a friend I never met (like a pen pal back in the day). I do miss her chiming in or posting an op-ed on the site. She is the epitome of showing how to not let the bastahs get you down. I've had the pleasure to meet several L-dotters over the years. It's like being a member of a special club that has no religion restrictions, just bring your facts, logic, knowledge, and world experience to the table. I once equated a morning visit to Lucianne like a bunch of like-minded people gathered at the General Store, reading the paper and "discussing" over breakfast. Very much what Sydney would have wanted us all to continue. Thanks Ms G. Still remember you wearing your L-dot pin up on your collar while being interviewed on FOX because they would have cropped it if they knew what it meant.

Biden secretly flying underage migrants

Planeloads of underage migrants are being flown secretly into suburban New York in an effort by President Biden’s administration to quietly resettle them across the region, The Post has learned. The charter flights originate in Texas, where the ongoing border crisis has overwhelmed local immigration officials, and have been underway since at least August, according to sources familiar with the matter. Last week, The Post saw two planes land at the Westchester County Airport, where most of the passengers who got off appeared to be children and teens, with a small portion appearing to be men in their 20s.

Two of the U.S.’ top military commanders, and the nation’s top Pentagon official, affirmed on Capitol Hill Tuesday that President Biden was advised to leave at least 2,500 troops in Afghanistan to prevent the Taliban from overrunning the Afghan army — directly contradicting what Biden told ABC News in an interview after the pullout.During their testimony, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley and Gen. Frank McKenzie were pressed on Biden’s decision to fully withdraw, and specifically asked if they recommended the president leave any troops in Afghanistan following Aug. 31.

The Pentagon defended a deadly August drone strike in Kabul on Monday – despite a report that the attack actually killed an innocent man and his family. The second of a pair of drone airstrikes in the waning days of the Afghanistan war is now being investigated by Central Command, but details are scarce and there remains a question of how much information will be shared once the probe is completed. “I would say that the assessment by Central Command is ongoing and I’m not gonna get ahead of that,” Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby said during a news briefing on Monday.

Lucianne Goldberg is a conservative literary agent who was an important player in the Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky scandal because she urged Pentagon civil servant Linda Tripp to tape her conversations with Lewinsky about the president. Goldberg’s role in the saga was resurrected by ABC in 2019 in a two-hour documentary called Truth and Lies, and she plays a key role in the new FX series, Impeachment: American Crime Story, which chronicles the saga of Lewinsky, Tripp, and the president.

WASHINGTON – Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday confronted Secretary of State Antony Blinken for statements that President Joe Biden has made on Afghanistan, including the president's claim that al-Qaida is no longer active in the country. During remarks on Friday, Biden said the United States no longer has any interest in keeping troops in Afghanistan because al-Qaida, which was behind the 9/11 attacks, is gone. “What interest do we have in Afghanistan at this point with al-Qaida gone?” Biden said. "We went to Afghanistan for the express purpose of getting rid of al-Qaida in Afghanistan, as well as... getting Osama bin Laden. And we did."

The lightning advance of the Taliban in retaking the country has led Afghan Americans, former generals and leading statesmen to blame President Joe Biden for a hasty US withdrawal. But he appears to have the public on his side - for now. Hadia Essazada wept as she recounted the horror the Taliban visited on her household, first beating her father, and then killing her brother. The first time "they were beating my father with an iron rod because they were looking for my elder brother", who had fought to resist their rule in the 1990s, she told BBC Persian.

The collapse of the Afghan government and takeover of the country by the Taliban is stirring concern in foreign capitals that chaos and instability engulfing the country could spill over to its neighbors and possibly drive a tide of refugees as far as Europe. There was also an undercurrent of criticism of the U.S. for the speed of its departure after nearly 20 years, colored by Washington’s failure to establish a stable government that could stand without American military support.

Walgreens announced Tuesday it would be closing five of its San Francisco locations due to "organized retail crime," but police department data, local officials, and policy experts are casting doubt on that reasoning, according to a report published by the San Francisco Chronicle on Saturday. While the report said the chain has experienced retail theft, other factors like the COVID-19 pandemic and oversaturation of stores were cited as potential factors behind the decision to close the stores. Walgreens spokesperson Phil Caruso said retail theft across its San Francisco locations has increased in the past few months to five times the

The only thing more laughable than Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s claim that spending two months on paternity leave counts as “work” is that the massive infrastructure bill in Congress would do anything to fix the supply chain crisis. When asked on CNBC why the administration waited so long to take action, Buttigieg responded that “we’ve been working this issue from day one”. Well, not exactly. As Politico reported, Buttigieg was “mostly offline” starting in mid-August, and only went on a media blitz after Politico disclosed the fact that he’d been on an unannounced leave.

Planeloads of underage migrants are being flown secretly into suburban New York in an effort by President Biden’s administration to quietly resettle them across the region, The Post has learned. The charter flights originate in Texas, where the ongoing border crisis has overwhelmed local immigration officials, and have been underway since at least August, according to sources familiar with the matter. Last week, The Post saw two planes land at the Westchester County Airport, where most of the passengers who got off appeared to be children and teens, with a small portion appearing to be men in their 20s.
