Lucianne Goldberg on living life
in American political history

Washington Times, by Joseph Cotto

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/8/2012 12:02:45 PM

FLORIDA — The American political arena is at once intriguing, complex, and mesmerizing. From the corridors of power in Washington to the studios of talk radio hosts, it can honestly be said that there is never a dull moment. Lucianne Goldberg has been a witness to many of modern American history’s defining moments. As an operative of the Democratic Party, she was afforded a behind the scenes look at Lyndon B. Johnson’s vice presidential nomination. Less than one decade later, she became a spy for the Nixon campaign, working behind the lines of George McGovern’s ill-fated

Comments:
Look what I found! What a nice article about our extremely dedicated and hard working leader. I loved the answer concerning the "right wing" description. How appropriate.

Nice article Miss Lucianne. Thank you for your dediction to conservative values, (and creating this, "must read", web site!) You are well loved by this poster.

~~Cotto: You gained notoriety in the '70s for your activism against the women's liberation movement. Why did you oppose this?

Goldberg: As a conservative I found the thinking of the early women's liberation movement socialistic, non-productive and based on the hatred of men. I felt their demand for equality ridiculous. Equality to me and the women my group represented was a step down in our society. Our argument was not against equal pay but was more social in nature. We liked men, we liked being treated in a special way and we knew women would end up doing it all anyway. They have.
~~

Bravo Ms. Lucianne! The young 'ladies' of today have no idea what life was like before women's lib, and what they are missing. Great article, great answers!!

There you go! All real men love treating special women. It is genetic. Check out any period of human history, men go out of their minds, sacrifice themselves without hesitation for the love of their life. Some say every great achievement in societies is really about men showing women what they can do. They might be right. Of course it has to be a man who appreciates things like honor and the woman does have to be special.

Second post....

I think we could all use a little comfort. A little distraction, a little hope and a little guide book.

Miss Lucianne, would you consider writing a "where do we go from here" tome?

I for one would be deeply heartened & grateful for some of your wisdom.

Interesting and insightful. Kudos to the reporter for doing his homework to make it so...

Also, Lucianne shows how to properly respond to a "gotcha" type question to disarm the questioner: reject his/her premise outright. A large number of GOP candidates could benefit from learning this technique.

Lucianne, may you bask in the love and sunshine and the scent of God's love all around you, today and always.

FTA: ''Goldberg: I don't like the phrase right-wing. It makes like minded people who believe in conservative values sound cultish. You also assume that the right has become more hard line. I don't agree. Those of us on the right may seem more strident in the face of the socialist slant the government is taking but we've not changed how we feel at all in my opinion.''

This is probably one of the most important things to remember when looking ''inside'' and seeing your conservative ''moral compass.'' Like the Catholic Church, people and events change around me, but the teachings & Truth don't. Others will try to define me, but only God needs to know what is my heart and the Love I have for Him, and then try to share with others. Politics, therefore, plays a major role, local, state and national.

As my Father taught me: God, Duty, Honor, Country.

As alway, Ms. Lucianne knows of my personal affection for her and this website. We'll keep storming the gates, till we face St. Peter's, knowing that ''Breitbart Lives'' with Lucianne & US.

Lucianne, you are a big part of our family. We're with you first thing after phone alarm goes off and last thing before turning off the light. The last few months I've been with you in the middle if the night when I can't sleep.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You have kept us sane, given us hope and made us laugh out loud.

Our prayers have been with you and the staff as you've dealt with this horrid storm. Take care.

Like many posters here, I have found Ms. Lucianne and this site to be an anchor of sanity when the sea gets rough. And it's gonna get a lot rougher so hang on.

We don't need a book, #10. The answer is simple, we don't give up, we stand strong knowing God is on our side and that some day others will sober up and realize we're right. The reason we all love Lucianne is because she does just that and let's all of us come here for support and comfort.

Mrs. Goldberg, You and this website will never know what you have meant to me over the years. At one very low point in my life, I sent what I could to help with the bandwith and explained why it could not be more. I received a personal response from you and I have never forgotten it. It made me tear up and still does that you would take the time out for me. God bless you and yours always.

On the contrary my fellow LDotter #18. Madame Lucianne rarely speaks but allows us to think and "speak" freely in her salon. Rarely is our hostess' voice heard, hence the article was a complete delight.

I think that there are many things our hostess should pen down with the help of beloved Jonah. A memoir if you will with all the wit and wisdom of her experiance.

Why, the dreadful Dictator has writen several tomes full of drivel! Fluff about nothing I say!

Miss Lucianne could teach us so much about life, liberty and the task at hand. Do consider it.

This article gave me a bit of hope that seemed to disappear after the election. I had just about decided to 'go apolitical', but Miss Lucianne, you gave me a ray of sunshine. Reading this board daily, and commenting now and then, is very important - thank you so much for providing us with this terrific resource.

And your description of a Traditional Conservative is perfect.

Thank you again Lucianne for this most excellent 24/7 place to check out the latest happenings at any time! -Everything is ALWAYS current here. This is the Home Page on my laptop and is THE place to be for info & commentary posted from throughout the country and even beyond for all to contemplate & discuss. LDotters are independent thinkers about the issues of the day, truth seekers! And we value your polite salon.

...Actually, considering the dismal biased & scripted PC shape of the current media, where else would we be able to locate, compare & discern information which any informed citizenry requires? Without the internet and talk radio how would we find & discern the facts these days, midst the PC MSM's sifting & spinning?!!

We also appreciate the clever way your site is arranged, the home page with its KEWL daily picture or cartoon, latest posts, search, etc.! -Best informative, organized & polite site on the entire WWW!

Thank you Ms. Lucianne, this site is a life-saver for excellent articles to read and the posters are held to high standards, unlike many other responders to articles. I appreciate that so much. You are the first site I check in the morning and the last, at night. No one can compare. I also remember an interview you did with Tony Snow on the radio, during the Clinton years. It was a thrill to hear your voice and reasonable comments. I think you and Tony were friends. We lost a great journalist.

Throughout my working life I was aware of the fact that the companies I worked for had a distinct culture and the behavior of its employees were for the most part firmly linked to this culture/behavior. The ones I made my home for awhile were the most gentle and caring while allowing the most productive to be successful. It goes without saying that the least successful of the bunch didn't have my presence very long.

The point? It is that even without saying it, Lucianne has an effect on this site, generating a culture if you will, without saying much at all. It's like her presence is felt rather than heard or read. I can read her feelings in what is posted here and is why I stick around and avidly try to absorb the ideas from all of you, which again, I'm sure reflect Lucianne's.

I don't like Streisand either, but the comment is sort of just hung out in space in the article. I wonder if there was some sloppy editing around that part of the interview. At any rate, like the others have said, this is a wonderful site, with wonderful members and leadership. Keep on trucking Ldotters and we will succeed in turning this nation in the direction it must go in order to thrive.

I'm another very grateful Poster here, grateful to Ms. Lucianne, and so blessed to participate with (mostly!) fellow Conservatives.

The articles posted are so very important, sometimes humorous, always interesting. The oversight of content is wisely done.

Lucianne speaks so clearly and succinctly. This is what Conservatives need to do in the public forum, or fora. Sometimes "we" assume that people know and understand conservatism.

This is a false assumption. It's based on another false assumption, namely that people, generally, are smart enough or wise enough or curious enough to WANT to learn and understand.

There's a lot of superficial, flimsy "thinking" out there in the marketplace of politics.

For our Republic to survive and flower again, it's imperative that we refine communication and get the liberating message of Conservatism promulgated.

This site gives us all an opportunity to hone the arguments, to vent --oh how we've needed this!-- our exasperations, and prepare for the fight ahead.

Lucianne ought to be on at FOX all day.

Thanks from the heart to Mrs. Goldberg!

Hadn't looked on any site, watched any TV, nor listened to any radio since 9 EST Tuesday night. Didn't want to ruin my sleep knowing Barry the Fraud had won.

I just broke my political exile by logging on here, first, of course, and this is the first article I read.

It helped that I didn't like Mr. Clinton. Still don't. Agreed.

Was a long time lurker for years until I FINALLY got posting privileges. This was back when there were limited, infrequent times to apply.

Ms. Goldberg, I still have your email from 5/16/2007 granting me posting privileges.

Great article about Miss Lucianne. I particularly like her view about the feminists as so many of us in our era felt the same way. We simply did not fall for it. As many good women have proved which includes Miss Lucianne they can stand on their own two feet. I liked Nixon too. Of course being a Republican he was ripe as a target. However, Nixon was a great statesman. He knew how to deal with foreign leadership by believe it or not acting crazy. Everything she imo was right on target and I thank her for telling it like it was and is.

Bottomlining the "approach" of Cotto:

Goldberg: There are so many assumptions in this question I chose not to address them.

And that, dear readers, is the State Controlled Lapdog Media's entire interviewing SOP.

BTW - I know that this is the Times and not the Post, but Cotto seemed very much the jerk.

The cult-like devotion to BHO is based on receiving benefits. Take away the extra unemployment weeks, make welfare work-fare,
take away or decrease all the social programs now in effect, cease the bailouts, etc and then we will see how much of a cult-like figure Obama really is. He is understandably an icon to Blacks ( Philly voting 99% for him ), but he is definitely not a favorite, to put it mildly, to many of us. He is, in fact, by the distribution of taxes, giving away my hard-earned money to those that I would never
agree to receive it. He is buying the vote with the citizen's taxes. Appreciate Ms Lucianne giving us a forum to vent.

A day without Ms. Luci is like a day without sunshine! Oh, Lordy! I hate it when for whatever reason the site doesn't open and I'm immediately scared THEY have finally taken her down. I love this site and it keeps me so well informed. However, with this second four years from Hell, I may just have to take a break. Thanks to you and your staff for all you do. It is certainly noticed, and congratulations on this excellent interview. I might watch Fox more if you were there, too.

Whooo, Go Ladybug!

I especially enjoyed your answer to his wordy, assuming spiel, where you said that there were so many assumptions in his question, you chose not to give an answer.

Most conservative politicians are so desperate to please the sterling undecided vote and leftist journalists that they allow the nasty assumptions in questions to fly by, and then try and apologize for an assumption that is not true. If only our leaders were as grounded in truth and logic.

When the website began, how could we have ever guessed the many political earthquakes we would be weathering together. Thank you again, x100, for all you do to give us this safe harbor in the storm.

Great article. Thanks for posting.

And as always, a million thanks to our own Lucianne, one of the most savvy gals on the planet, for everything you do every single livelong day. And also thanks for Jonah, who just gets better and better!

According to Lucianne, to be a traditional conservative, one needs, : "God, family, flag, small government and being left alone to live one's life within the law."
Amen.
Lucianne for President!

BTW, Lucianne, you need to circulate a more current 'file photo'. You're more gorgeous than ever these days! ;)

Sorry I did not scroll down to this posting sooner. I too loved the interview and count it a privilege to be allowed to post at times.
What would it take to persuade Fox News to feature our host frequently? Can we start a campaign? Wouldn't be a great relief to know we are still banded together.
I have had a day long exchange with my oldest son in SF. I ended it with this observation after he said he was sorry that I "lost".
"I am NOT sad. Like George Will, back when Jimmy Carter became President, I feel that now Obama will be solely responsible for really showing the anti-prosperity effects of Progressive-ism. If Romney had won, he would have had a thankless job, with virtually no popular support for tough measures needed."

Lucianne, what a great interview, you need to be on Fox EVERY DAY. America needs to hear the plain truth about conservatism.

Also, I'm sure you don't know this but you have been a member of my family for over 10 years. You know what they say, you can choose your friends but you can't choose your family!

Keep it up, Love you to death!

Great interview while it lasted. Ended way too soon! Agree with Mrs. Goldberg on all points excepting one - she is a noted figure in American politics.
If, as she said, it was luck rather than inspiration that caused her involvement, that makes Conservatives doubly lucky. Words can't express the appreciation most conservatives have for her and so many others who are an inspiration because of their efforts.

God bless her, and hers.

Ms. Lucianne, thank you for all you have done to support and inform my conservative values. The above posters say so much of what I think. You are an inspiration.

From the heart of 'fly-over' country, when I started reading you and Drudge in the late '90's, I was so isolated living in Minneapolis, being conservative, and a young post-feminist mom.

You inspired me to speak my mind about the cost of feminism to women in my Generation. Since then, my LDot family has supported me through my parents illnesses and deaths, and many late nights waiting for teenagers who were occasionally late for curfew, even if you never knew it.

I am always honored to be your guest.

Lovely article! We should be grateful to lucianne and other media people who advocate for our interests. I don't know how I would have kept my sanity if I didn't have a place to express my opinions (and at times vent)...this has been a frustrating campaign for me knowing that most media were telling lies about mitt Romney. I still think he would have gone down in history as the man who saved America.
I'm still hurting, but I can't imagine how mitt and Ann are feeling.
I think the only way I can get some closure on this election is to sit down and write a letter of appreciation for how he always carried himself with honor and dignity...and always because of his love for America.
Maybe we didn't deserve him.

I needed to read this today! It gave me a break from my own torturous thoughts. I have had a headache and a persistent cloud of sadness since Tuesday.
Tomorrow, I buck up and realize that God has not forgotten my name, nor forsaken our country. I want to get to the place where I pray for the president every day. That is when I will feel peaceful.
BTW, post #8 was just lovely to read. I bet there's a confident MrsNYBob out there who appreciates her husband.

Hi folks. This 91 year old military warrior (1942-1972) has experienced many, many changes in our culture over the years. It is sad to me to see where our country is now being taken. I sometimes wonder if my thirty years efforts to preserve our Founding Fathers legacy to us may have been in vain. I fear what life of my grandchildren will be if this trend is not turned around before it is too late to change. A great consolation for me is to be able now and then to post a comment on my favorite website Lucianne.com. Thank you Lucianne; you are a jewel to behold.

When the site was up and down during the debates, I thought I would go crazy. I realized then how strongly I rely on the insights, humor, knowledge and common sense we all receive every day, several times a day from Lucianne.com. Thank you, Lucianne...and I know this is very Facebookish of me, but man, I wish sometimes that we had a "like" button under the comments. I'd like this whole thread. =)

Wish that Aggie57 and others were still around to comment.

I still want to know what "name" Tony Snow posted under.

I'm just baffled why some people don't understand the concept of "being left alone to live one's life within the law".

Thank you Mrs G and my fellow thinkers who post here and keep me sane.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

The Bill Clinton White House angered a black congressman in 1993 after he was forced to show his ID and submit to a search of his car before Secret Service would allow him to enter the White House for a meeting with then-Vice President Al Gore. A white driver taking Ohio Democratic Rep. Louis Stokes to his meeting was admitted without an ID-check. A staffer´s memo to Clinton a week later warned the president about the incident before a scheduled photo-op including Stokes and the mayor of a Cleveland suburb.

The Department of Health and Human Services is proposing a rule that would, if implemented, guarantee that even more Americans who like their health insurance plans cannot keep them. Fixed indemnity plans, which pay insured customers a set amount towards medical expenses and are often cost-effective relative to more comprehensive health insurance, are popular forms of coverage, and potentially becoming more popular in the wake of Obamacare. Health insurance industry representatives say that fixed indemnity plans have been attracting more interest as many Americans look for a

Senator Harry Reid came under fire for saying Thursday that supporters of Cliven Bundy are “domestic terrorists,” and in a TV appearance today he doubled down. He appeared on local Nevada program What’s Your Point? with Dean Heller, Nevada’s other senator, and stood by his remarks, calling Bundy’s supporters “domestic violent terrorist wannabes.” Reid said that Bundy “doesn’t believe that the American government is valid” and doesn’t follow the law, bringing up how hundreds of people showed up armed to defend Bundy to argue that they’re basically engaging in an act of domestic terrorism. “600 people came. Armed.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
